He Gets Off WTTTi a Small Fine On
Account of His Family.
Monday last a peculiarly mean
petty larceny case received the at
tention of the Wailuku district
magistrate, that of Joe Medciros ac
cused of stealing grain from the
H. C. fe S. Co's stables at Camp
One. The way ho did it was to
enter the stable after the Chinese
Htahleman had put grain in the
mangers for the plantation horses,
empty thoyStuff into a bag and take
the plunder home for his own, use
For a number of times the stable
man was puzzled to find the man
ger of several stalls empty and the
hors,es standing by as hungry as if
they never had their grain.
To solve the mystery the stable
man kept a looKout lor uie un
known thief but without success
until last Saturday evening when
Joe Medeiros was observed leaving
the stables with a third of a sack
full of grain He was followed to
his house and was later arrested
and charged with petty larceny.
From the fact that he stole the
grain from under the noses of hun
gry horses his offenses is conceded
to bo the meanest petty offense ever
noted in the annals of the district
court of Wailuku.
Joe Medeiros was arraigned be
fore Judge Crockett Monday last
and plead guilty to the charge,
claiming that was the very first
time he had picked up some loose
grain lying about the stables, while
his accusers were morally certain
that it was not the first time.
From the fact that the offender
had a family dependent on him for
support the prosecution asked for
leniency and the court let him off
with a fifteen dollars fine, otherwise
a jail sentence would have been too
light for a man who is so mean as
to steal a dumb brute's supper from
under the animal's nose. Besides
the court fine the plantation fired
Medciros from his job.

The Source of Supply for New Water

The source of water supply for the

the forest from "Idlewilde" is about
the same elevation as Olinda or
Idlewilde. This gulch has already
been tunneled and a dam will soon
be constructed to conserve the water.
During the past year Engineer
F. E. Harvey has built an, excellent,
horse-trail to this water-head bridg
ing -15 to 50 small gulches along the
way. The scenery adjoining this
new roadway is most beautiful, the
forest consisting of thick, ferns, ohia,
koa, and other Hawaiian vegetation.
The hiaile vine is, noted here and
there and what is unusual is the
profusion of blackberry plants shoot
ing up all along the pathway. Sev

waterfalls over and through fern
covered rocks are especially pleas
Five miles beyond Waikamoe is
the famous Honomanu valley and it
is possible, should the water supply
of Waikamoe prove inadequate (a

as well will bo extended to Hono
If this should ever happen, the

scenic attractions oi ine lsianu.

A Combination That Does Not Work
Tuesday evening, the Russian
colony at Kahului. not content with
the ordinary activities and excite
ment of the town, started some
thing on their own account. Here
tofore when in need, of excitement
the Russians hae been content to
drink whisky and gin, but these
light, beverages were not, to their
liking, so they acquired some wood
alcohol and proceeded to make
Ttfe party consisteiCof two women
and one man, and the man is re-
porteil to have refused a second
drink of the alcohol, saying it was
too hot, but not so the women. The
first drink to them was only an ap
petizer, and they got away with a
quart of the poison, before it legan
to get in its deadly work. Just how
long the debauch lasted is not
known, but the women were found
Unconscious, one dead, and the
other in a very precarious condition.
The one who was living was rushed
to the hospital, but died after
several hours of suffering. The
Sheriff was immediately summoned,
and a coroner's jury returned a ver
dict of death from poison caused by
excessivo drinking of Wood Alcohol.
Advertising for Maui.
The Daily Advertiser of Honolulu
has had one of their brilliant special
correspondents circulating through
Maui for the past month intheperson
of II. M. Ayers. Mr.Ayers has written
some very graphic accounts of the
unfrequented parts of tho Valley
isle, and it no doubt has proved
spicy reading for the favored few
who receive tho morning paper over
on this side of the channel. That
Mr'. Ayers had a hilarious timo en
tertaining and being entertained
goes without saying. The past-week
just before leaving Wailuku for the
metropolis, ho resolved to liie him
to the winery at Kaupakalua, and
discover, if possible the secret of
wine making. After the manner of
his Japanese friends, he resolved
to .buy a gallon oflhe wine, in order
that he might duplicate tho brand
for home consumption. Ayers
guarded his gallon of wine faithfully
till he saw it safely landed in his
hotel. After carefully locking Ids
door Ayers sat down to contemplate
the fortune he saw in Bight manu
facturing wine. No more newspaper
work ; no more horse medicine, but
wine, wine everywhere. In his en
thusiasm he had neglected to taste
