exhibition of himself on the public
wharf, he was moved to pity.
' "He seems a decent-looking guy,"
murmured Ford to himself, "I
"guess I ought to get him out of
sight, and straighten him up, before
he js seen about or jugged."
Algy, who admitted between hic
coughs, being "beastly, awfully,
jolly, tired, don't-ye know," -required
little persuasion when Ford
suggested he should come aboard

The Britisher was led to onq of

Over at Hana
Chinamen Have Row, and Try to Blow
Up One of Their Countrymen.
Wednesday . morning, about 2
o'clock the citizens of Hana were
aroused by a terrific explosion,
which caused some to think tbat old
llalcakala had again come to life.
On investigation, it was learned that
a Chinaman who bad aroused the
enmity of some of bis countrymen,
was the cause of all the noise. T
the fact that the would-lre-murder-ers
were not acquainted with powder,
the Chinaman, and probably others,
owe their lives. A quantity of black
powder was placed under the shack
in which the Chinaman Jives, and
as they .knew nothing about fuses,
they took some rope and saturated
it with kerosene oil, in order to
connect with the powder. There
was plenty of space about the pow
der, and thus the force of the ex
plosion was not directed entirely
nguinst the bouse, and though dam
aged to some extent, neither house
or Chinaman was put completely
out of commission. Deputy .Sheriff
Josepli is working on the case, but
no one among tbo Chinese colony
knows aiiytliing about the affair.
This is the usual course pursued by
the Oriental and it is about impos
sible to find the culprits.
' As he passed the long' rows of de
sorted cabins, he saw no one and all
was silent as the grave. His own
lusty cries for aid echoed hollowly
through the bull.
Above, on, deck, John Ford, the
trusty night watohnlan bung, arms
akimbo, over the railing of tbo Yu
catan looking seaward at the troubled
waters, which still refused to forget
their anger of the previous night.
A cry of "Ere.'elp.'elp, hi siiy!"
was tbo first thing to wake Ford
from bis reverie. Hastily looking
round, he saw the roysterer of the
night before; life-belt in hand, rush
ing toward him.
' Ere,'elp, hi ray; 'elp me to put

you and hi itr the honly ones saved."
ALO.Y COLLAPSES UNDER STRAIN
At this point Algy, became inar
ticulate and sank in a stupor to the
deck. It was several minutes be
fore the watchman managed to
bring him to.
After Algy Augustus Chohnonde-
ley Fitz-Herbert had explained to
Ford that he was on his way to the
Marama the previous ovening when
he boarded the Yucatan, the lattor
grasped the situation and took him
to the office of the Canadian-Australian
line. There officials read
out to him a string of wireless mes
sages, which Capt. John Gibb, skip
per of the Marama, had flashed
from far out at sea to make certain
whether the noble Algy had fallen
overboard or only forgotten to come
on 'with his suit case,"

Racy News From the Capitol Regard
ing Sugar Stock.
Honolulu, Nov. 1
The week past developed nothing
extraordinary in tho stock, market,
save, perhaps', a steady run of sales
something seldom met with at times
of depressnn. While stocks arc
very low there is all tho confidence
that the sugar situation will justify;
and in the adjustments which are
now taking place, speculating has
practically no place, tho investing
public being, for the most part, at
tho buying end. At this stage the
indications aro of lower prices in
spots and perhaps all along the line
for short periods of nervousness
which are quite likely to appear.
It is a fortunate thing for future
quotations, however, that buyers
and sellers have for some weeks
based their calculations upon sugar
around 3. GO at no distant day, the
same to continue for quite a period.
In the past week or two indications
have been more and more insistent
that even 3. GO is too, high to expect
of sugar before the beet and Cuban
crops are out of the way, and' that
3.50 will be nearer, the mark. It is
upon the fatter basis that calcula
tions are at present being adjusted.
PIONEER VERY LOW.
Pioneer stock, which was $190
bid and $191.50 asked at last report,
was shakey on Wednesday and
Thursday, settled to $185 bid and
$190 asked at the last of the week,
and is now 185 bid and $187.50
asked. While it was still at 8190 a
total of 100 shares changed bands,
the amount of money involved be
ing $19,000. At private sale tho
last of the week, and not yet report
ed on tbo Exchange, 100 additional
shares changed hands at 8187.50.
Hawaiian Commercial continues
around 34, tho variations now
depending entirely upon San Fran
cisco quotations. A block of 50
shares sold at 34 yesterday, and
although only 33.875 isj bid today
there is no stock to be had at that
figure. Prior to the sale referred
to, 90 shares in small lots changed
bands at a total of 303G.75.
Hawaiian Commercial will pay a
dividend next Saturday of 25 cents
a share, or a total sum of 100,000.
OTHER MAUI STOCKS,
Neither Paia, Haiku, Olowalu
nor Wailuku have appeared in tba
trading in the past week. The first
three mentioned appear to bo solid
around 150. Wailuku, to the
surpriso of many, has declined to
170, which is bid. The last pre
vious sales of this stock was at $175
Olowalu paid a dividend yester
day of $2, being in a total sum of
$3,000 to its stockholders.

Some Positive Reasons Why You Should
Vote the Republican Ticket.
Vote tho Republican ticket!
Chas. Copp of Makawao is anoth
er Independent candidate without a
platform or party behind him.
With Chas. Copp for county super
visor Makawao would be in no posi
tion to gel further favors from fi
"Republican board of sunervisors.
A vote for Copp will "be a .vote
against further public improvements
for the Makawao district.
Republican campaigners return

Island will go Republican by a good
majority, and that Theo. T. Meyer
will beat O. Tollefsen hands down.

The Republicans have made a
clean campaign. Tho party speak

News is informed that the Demo
crats have also tried to make a clean
fight for votes, with one notable
exception. It is said on the streets
that this particular candidate

is the- key to the situation. If ho

W. J. Coelho has been telling the
Makawao district voters that the
failure to re-appoint Chas, Copp as
district magistrate for Makawao was
due to the opposition of Mr. H. P.
Baldwin. The facts tire that both
H..P. Baldwin and II. A. Baldwin
recommended the re-appointment of
of Jndgo Copp district magistrate for
Makawao and that the Judges of the
Supreme Court made the change
regardless of said recommendation.
This is tho truth of tho matter,
