the other day and, it is whispered,
that it is to be an annual affair
under the good ollices of Mrs. Stcere
and ladies connected with the co

are liberal even in the lean year
such as we have just passed through
and which, will no doubt lopeat
itself next year.

which some peoplw send their money

leaving it at homo where there is

to have been very small. At first

the Sacramento valley in Californii
and they hope to make a lot out of
it. Lewis, the elder, believes ho
can establish a West Sacramento
and with the factory sites and water
rights he has in his fist, he should
succeed. The McCandless Brothers
arc in on a similar deal and, if their
luck follows they will come out at
tho right end of the cornucopia.
U)eath removed a well known fig
ure from Honolulu lately when
Captain A. N. Tripp passed to the
great Beyond. I remember when a
relative of his went to him during
Ins term as port warden and made
inquiry as to the chances of getting
some opium through the line. This
was during the Provisional Govern
ment and things were hardly as
easy as before tho form of govern
ment changed. The answer was,
'Try it; you will have the same
.chance the other fellows have of get
ting it througn, or getting caught
and, if it happens to be the latter,
I'll cinch you 'till you yell for
mercy." The dopo was not brought
through. The old captain was a
mine of interesting reminiscences
with which ho enjoyed entertaining
his friends, and they were as an
xious to get him talking. His ox
peiience in tho islands covered more
than a half century, and during it
he served on whalers that were
destroyed by the old privateer Shen
audoah, the. last case of which was
recently beforo a commission to
take testimony. Tho captain had
been jailer at u time when things
were not too stringent at the prison
and escapes were semi-occasional.
I think tvhilo he was in charge, a
murderer was given an opportunity
to avoid tho nooso by allowing him
self to bo innoculated with leprosy
bacillis. Ho acceptod tho offer and
in duo time died. It was shown by
the experiment that Jit took at least
four years for the disease to assume
a fatal stage. Two of the men who
had been sentenced for tho murder
of Goto, a Japanese storekeeper at
llonokaa, managed to escape during
his term of oflicc and there was a
belief that they were not prevented
by tho guards. Of the four men
sentenced for the crime two escaped,
one was pardoned after some years,
and the fourth served his time
"like a gentleman." Of course
murder was not tho intent of the
quartet; they wanted to throw a
scare into the man for selling goods
at lower prices than one of the men
who took part in tho hanging bee,
in front of the Honokaa Lyceum,
cared to sell for. It was never de
finitely known how badly the Jap
anese was frightened his lips were
sealed by death. When the cap
tain lost his position as harbor mas
ter a couple of years ago he fought
with all his might and the harbor
commission which turned the trick,
won no friends by tho operation,
for the captain had more loyal fol
lowers than any of the members of
tho board. Since then he lived
quietly, spending his time under
his own vine and fig tree out at
Waikiki. His funeral was largely
attended and was under Masonic
on Tim JO.
Just now Honolulu is filled with
patriots wailing to shake the hand
that shook Wilson's. One could
not lling a stone up or down King
or Fort street and not hit a candi
date, or one willing to be, and tho
chances arc the stone would carom
and hit a half-dozc-n others. The
Star-Bulletin published a slate last
night on which' the name of Palmer
Wood did s.ot load, nor did it fol
low, all the rest. His name has
been -touted several times as the
only genuinu candidate of the
Democratic faith who could fill the
cfiicc of Secretary of tho Territory.
Another guess belongs to his sup
porters. Metzgor and Raymond are
now slated for it and I confess a
preference for Metzgcr-Ilaymond is
hasty and it leads him into the
grouch zone so often that getting on
with him is no easy matter so his
friends say. He is also mentioned
for President of the Board of
Health, a billet for which he seems
more lilted, because diplomacy is
not one of the essentials to success
in that place. The absence of it,
rather, seems to bo tho rule. As to
Wood and the Secretaryship, one
must not forget that there is always
a lark horse, and the man from
Kohala may be he. Harry Irwin
is said to be hero to greet tl.o gov
ernor and, incidentally, mention
his candidacy for the judgeship of
the Fourth Circuit. That seems to
be, in the opinion of men who
know Pinkham and who have casu
ally met President Wilson, to be
useless; Irwin's attitude during the
sugar inquiry, the insiduous lobby
and what not, will naturally coun
teract any claims his friends may
The death of John Medeiros may
or may not put an end to the prose
cution of Mrs. Welsh for perjury.
Jess. McChesncy believes ho has
enough evidence to convict her of
the charge. He tells me that in
going over the affair with Medeiros
the latter admitted to having loaned
tho woman $0,200. McChesney saw
in the drawer of a desk used by
Medeiros, beforo ho went to the
coast, a number of letters requesting
money and several notes for sums
in the aggregate of 1,700. When
Joe's brother came down, skeptical
and all as ho was, McChesncy tried
to show him whero Joe was going
wrong and offered to show him the
evidenco ho had but, when Mac went
to the desk to get it, the place had
been cleaned out. But when the
notes and letters were first found by
McChesney, he took copies of them
so ho showed tho copies to tho
brother from Maui. When spoken
to about tho matter and told that he
would bo discharged if ho did not
break off from tho woman and make
an effort to got tho nionoy, Joe cried
and admitted that ho had given the
notes and othor lotters back to Mrs.
Welsh, because she wanted tho
oto3 to hand to her attorney. Ho
was satisfiod tho woman was square
and that he would get back the
money that dayt Medeiros was
"into" McChesney for $700, and
McChesncy made a demand for the
money and told Joe that he would
have to go to Maui that day and
bring hack the cash, otherwise ho
stood a chance of being prosecuted.
The money was forthcoming within
two days. Still the brother was nor
the only one from whom tho poor
misguided man borrowed money;
lie stuck his father-in-law for $1,200
and sixty or more persons beside
for sums ranging from ten dollars to
$350. McChesney tells mo ho has
several cases in detail where Mrs.
Welsh worked her friends and
others for sums large and small,
and he named over some to me that
surprised mo because I thought they
had gone out of the farmer class and
become chilled. A restaurant man,
not on King street, was beseeehed
for a loan of two hundred and was
about to limber up because ho is
rather an E. Z. Mark. He was saved
by a friend who stood across the
street and watched. When the
woman had gone inside tho icstau
rant to join her friends, ,'he friend
told the manager of- the place to
keep his eye peeled and not to let
go of any coin. This advice was
taken without much question. Me
deiros said beforo he died that the
woman gave him fifty dollars to get
away on. It is said that on reach
ing San Francisco ho had no money
and no friends and slept in the
parks, where he caught the cold
that brought on rheumatism and re
sulted in his death.
Ball Game Last Sunday Was Good
Contest Rice Shows Fine
On Sunday last the trial game
between the All Maui baseball team
and the "Rest" was played and
resulted in a win for the star
aggregation by a score of 7 to 4.
The "Rest" did well, hut not
quite well enough.
The scoring for the All Maui
team began in the second inning,
when they got two men home.
They followed this up by scoring
three men in the fourth and then
had a healthy lead on the other
team. The "Rest," however,
piled up four runs in the fourth,
and the contest then looked closer.
The All Mauis were not done, by
a lot, and they added two runs to
their total in the fifth making
their tally 7 to their opponent's 4.
There was no further scoring and
the game ended in that manner.
Harold Rice played first base
and held down the. job in great
form. He has a long reach and
the way he hooked his toe into the
sack and leaned out for the hall,
made the runners looked scared.
He accounted for ten men and
played good ball.
The All Maui team is rounding
out well and, when the men go to
Honolulu next month, they should
give a good account of themselves.

Lieutenant Sadtler, who was a
member of the Punahou baseball
team, met with a serious accident
on Thursday afternoon when run
ning to third base in tho first inning
of his team. He overran the sack
and, in trying to hook his foot into
tho bag, slipped and turned in such
a way as to not only dislocate his
right ankle, but also to fracture the
large bone of his right leg.
Tho young army oilier showed
grit, and only called out for help.
He knew his leg was broken as he
felt it go when he hit the bag.
Doctors Sawyer and Osmers rushed
across the gro'und and, seeing at a
glance what was the matter, ordered
that Lieutenant Sadtler be taken to
the Puunene Hospital.
The young officer only had three
days leave from his regiment and
his first thought was that he must
get back to his post as soon as pos
sible. Arrangement were made to
ship him in a comfortable manner
to Honolulu, where he will bo con
fined in the military hospital for
some weeks, it is feared.
When Lieutenant Sadtler fell and
broke his, leg in the ball game on
Thursday, the Maui boys showed
good sportinanship by not insisting
that he be declared out. Strictlv
speaking Sadtler was off his base
and could have been tagged. The
run made an instant later by the
man who took Sadtler's place, won
the game for Punahou. Maui made
no kick when the umpire called
Sadtler safe, and that fact is a
feather in the caps of our men.
The luncheon at the Wailuku
gymnasium between . the two ball
games was a fine affair and the
players of both teams had a good
time. The spread was an excel
lent one, and full justice was done
to the good things. A corps of
ladies waited on the guests and
Senator Penhallow also took a
hand. Mesdames II. Rice, II. B.
Penhallow, Kepoikai, and Pan

The Punahou players all declare
that they had a good time on Maui,
and that they hope to make an

in the future.

There was a very pleasing inci-dcnt---or
rather a succession of
incidents last Wednesday even
ing, when a number of goodhearted
people entertained the children of
the town at the "movies" at the
Maui Theatre. A subscription list
had been sent out early in the
week, and about $55 was collected
in cash. Many gifts of candy
were also made, and the kids soon
got away with the bags of sweets.
The ladies who had charge of
the affair worked hard and, besides
collecting money, helped" to fill
candy bags. and make the young
sters enjoy themselves. The ladies
were: Mesdames Burleiu, Warn
er, Chislelt, Martinsen, Rosa,
Miner, A. K. Ting, Oyama, and
Crockett, the Misses Kcola, Hart,
Boyd, Konda, Yoshizawa, Robiu

and they had the time of their
lives. The older ones expressed
their thanks for the treat given
them, and the younger lots looked
what they could not say.

My conscience shall preside as Queen.
It shall not, by wrung thoughts be seared,
And its dictates shall ne'er be feared.
I will not do a thing that I
Would fear the search of mortal eye.
For every act I do shall be
An act that every one may see.
I'll never have the curtains drawn,
When day-light fades into the dawn.
I'll do nothing I cannot tell,
To friends, likewise the world as well.
All bygones shall be buried deep
As wrongs done me, in deepest sleep. '
I'll start anew, with life ahead,
And keep this pledge
My life shall be a life of pride,
And from the world no act I'll hide.
I'll follow conscience dictates straight,
And let real justice judge my fate.
No wrong shall tangle my straight path,
No fear await my aftermath.
If there's a future and a God,
To judge me when I'm 'neath the sod,
Then to this judgement I'll abide,
And from this judge no thing would hide.
If right for me, is wrong for you,
Then do not do the things I do.
I have a conscience to dictate,
And so have you, then trust your, fate
To what your conscience leads you to, ,
Yet be quite sure 'tis conscience true.
So I resolve this New-Year day,
To do no thing I'd hide away.
No act for which I'd be ashamed,
Then by my God I'll not be blamed,
I'll ask his help to show the way,
To conscience true, till judgement day.
