'Fire and Sword" Said to Be
One of the Most Elaborate
Pictures Ever Brought to Islands
By Author of "Quo Vadis,"
"Some programme," Is the way
Phpros is advertising the next offer
ing at the Orpheum theater, and
"some programme" Is correct, even if
the "long" spelling is used In the word
For the spectacular it would be hard
to conceive of anything that could
excel "Fire and Sword." Dramatized
and filmed from the stirring novel
from the pen of Henryk Seinkewicz,
whose "Quo Vadis" created a great
sensation a number of years ago, the
picture deals with conditions of the
day in the Arabic East. Opening with
scenes in Tangiers the action of the
film shows the methods employed by
"harem fiends" of that far-away land
in "refurnishing" Ills "home." The
Grand Vizier of Fez becomes enam
ored of a beautiful American gill in
Tangiers, orders her abduction and
hastens across the desert to the
sacred city of Fez with his fair cap
tive. The SulUn of Fez falls in love
with the captive and demands that
the Grand Vizier turn her over to dec
orate the "chief harem."
Reluctantly the Grand Vizier com
plies and proceeds to institute a revo
lution and overthrow the Sultan. The
revolution is a great success in so far
as the overthrow of the Sultan is con
cerned, but the Grand Vizier fails to
retake his former captive, both he
and the Sultan meeting death, and
the American girl being rescued
through the efforts of a New York
newspaper man who finally claims
her heart and hand.
Thrilling is the correct word to de
scribe the fighting that is portrayed
during the revolution in Fez. Not tht
fighting that is now being prosecuted
in Europe, but the more romantic
hand-to-hand encounter of the less
"civilized" countries. The scene in
which the Sultan's palace is fed to
the flames and daring escapes made
by the American girl and her rescuers
are just about as realistic as anything
could be made. It is a big spectacu
lar picture, ably acted and artistically
To be shown at Wailuku Orpheum,

Pulolo, Aged Hawaiian Woman
Murder Released By Executive
Clemency After 23 Years Mur
dered Nephew, Sister and Lover.
After serving nearly twenty-three
years in the Territorial prison in Ho
nolulu lor her part in three brutal
murders, Pulolo, an aged Hawaiian
woman, now nearly sixty years of age,
was released on Christmas day on
pardon from Governor rinkham. The
woman was known as a kahuna, and
was greatly feared, it is said, on the
Island of Lanai, where her crimes
were committed early in the year
1802. At the time ol her lelease, she
had been in prison probably longer
than any other prisoner in 'lie insti
tution. Pulolo's crimes were among the
most notorious ever committed in
these islands, and her brutality in
their commission so stirred the citi
zens of Maui and Lanai Hint alter the
first trial, when she was convicted by
a native jury, the second trial was
transferred from Wailuku to Kauai, to
obtain a more impartial jury. During
her many later years in prison It is
said Pulolo has reformed and repent
ed of her early evil deeds. She comes
forth now an agcl, broken and deeply
The story of her crimes and their
motive, as related by the newspaper
files of 22 years ago, is briefly that
she claimed the powers ol a kahuna,
or sorceress, and, falling in love with
her sister's husband, set. out to kill
the sister and her own husband, that
she might be free to many the brotli-er-inlaw.
In order to accomplish this
without cc'sing suspicion of her real
motives, she began by punishing a 6-year-old
boy, the son of her elder
brother. Assisted liy her retinue of
"soldiers" she first assaulted her hus
band, cowed him and then literally
beat the child to death.
Aided actively by the sweetheart
she wished to marry she then assault
ed her sister. The muiderous couple
bound the sister and buried her head
in hot sand until she was suffocated.
Placing that body beside the corpse
of the boy in the little family house
Pulolo called upon two of her servi
tors and seized Kaholokai, her sweet
heart and former aide, caused him to
be bound and then beat him to death
with her own hands. It was under
stood that her sudden change of tac
tics, in turning on her sweetheart and
killing him, was through fear that he
would reveal the true details of the
On the morning following the triple
murder, still exercising her Influence
over her retinue, she had the house
and all three bodies burned, to hide
the evidence of the crime, and pre
pared a plausible story which her
friends were instructed to tell in ex
planation of the deaths.
Some old-time Ilawaiians placed
great faith in her alleged power as a
kahuna, and a story is even told of
her use of the baleful occult uilljenec
some years ago, during her incarcera
tion. This is to the eflect that she
told anothei fcnn.le prisoner who had
in ( urred her enmity:
"You will not live 24 hours after
you leave prison." The tale is that
her prophecy came true, the woman
taking ill immediately after her re
lease and dying within the time pre
scribed by Pulolo.

COLORADO HOTEL MEN ARE
A majority of the prominent hotel
and restaurant men of Denver have
expressed their opiniou that without
a doubt the prohibition law passed
at the recent election will prevail and
be put in force. It is to be heard in
other quarter!? that there is still a
chance of recalling the amendment
prohibiting the sale of lirpuor. This
is not the idea of the hotel men in
general. They are for enforcing the
law, and have pledged themselves to
see that it is enforced so far as it
concerns themselves. Colorado Tour
