Two Pals of
McCutchin Well Known Here Pecu
liar Movements of Trio Indicate
Attempt to Get Scully Out of Is
landsTrying to Reach Hilo.
The Molokai end of tho story of tho
ntlempted escape of Jack Scully, con
victed badger gamo man, of Hono
lulu, is of considerable interest. The
wireless during tho week told how
Scully broke his parole, and In a sam
pan made tho trip to Molokai, where
ho was later captured and taken back
Tho fact is, however, that Scully re
turned to Honolulu of his own accord
in tho boat that brought him to Molo
kai. Ho arrived Wednesday morning
and loft tho same evening from Kau
nakakai, aboiit half an hour before
Deputy Sheriff Nakaleka arrived to
placo him under arrest.
Tho officer, however, found two min
at Kaunakakai named McCutchin and
Ilatta, who had come over with Scul
ly. He reported this by wireless to
Sheriff Crowoll, who upon advice from
the federal authorities in Honolulu,
ordered their arrest. Nakaleka accord
ingly got his men, and brought thorn
by sampan to Lahalna, arriving at an
early hour yesterday morning. A few
hours later, Deputy U. S. Marshal Otto
Heine airlvcd, in Eugeno Duvauchel
lo's boat, having mado the trip from
Honolul uto Molokai and then to La
halna. Ho took charge of tho prison
ers, and Immediately started back to
Honolulu with them.
McCutchin is a structural Iron iot le
er who recently worked on the repairs
to tho steel bridge in Walluku, and Is
quite well known here. It is sa'd that
ho at one time tended bar for Scully.
Ttolta is a Spaniard.
Tho supposition is that Scully was
trying to get to Hilo, from whence lie
hoped to get a steamer to tho coast.
Ho expected to find Devauchelle at
Molokai to take him to Hilo, but. this
boatman was at the time enrouto to
Honolulu. Tho boatman who brought
him to Molokai refused to go further,
so Scully put back hoping to find De
vauchelle or some one else who would
tako him to tho Hawaii port. It Is
rumored shrdluu..l nt shdru unununl
presumed that his two companions
who remained on Molokai, are being
held as accomplices in his escape.

Washington, D. C.
Believing that every honorable pub
lie and private sacrifice should be
made to the end that our country shall
not become involved In war with any
foreign nation, we the undersigned,
loyal citizens of the United States and
supporters of your European war poli
cy, sincerely hope that the action of
yourself and Honorable Wm. J. Bryan,
both looking to the same solution of
the same problem, may result in more
firmly establishing with the warring
nations our desire to maintain peace
at home and attain peace abroad.
Headed by the name of F. F. Bald
win, the above form of petition was in
circulation on Maul during the past
week and was signed veiy generally
by representative citizens of all sec
tions of tho Island. Like petitions were
circulated on all tho other islands of
the Territory, but met with varying
leceptions in different places. In Ho
nolulu It was signed by many promi
nent men before It was wirelessed to
Washington, and another, identical In
form except that tho "Honorable Win.
J. Bryan" clause was omitted, was
headed by Queen Liliuokalanl and
contained tho names of ex-Governor
Carter .and many of tho members of
the last legislature.
Call It German Trick.
In Hilo tho petition met with sus
picion, and the Hilo papers declare it
a trick on the part of tho local Ger
man and German-American population
to embarrass tho administration. On
Kauai, the "Garden Island" also ad
vises against the petition on the
grounds that it would not bo fair to
the President, and that the petition
should rather be referred to tho war
ring nations themselves. Tho goner
ally accepted attitude on this island,
as it seems to have been in Honolulu,
Is that while tho instrument no doubt
Is inspired by citizens oi German birth
or parentage, who hope by this means
to help keep tho United States out of
a possible conflict with Germany, tho

Wholesale License. Protest Against
Fifteen liquor licenses wero granted
by tho board of license commissioners
at its meeting or. Thursday. All are
renewals of licenses at present in
force. Tho Kaupakalua Wlno & Li
quor Company withdrew its applica
tion for a fourth-class manufactory
license, taking out simply Its whole
sale license for its Pauwela branch.
The reason for this is that under tho
interpretation of tho liquor law as
amended by tho last legislature, the
wine company would be compelled to
sell its product under a wholesale II
conse, no manufacturing license being
provided for. Tho commissioners de
clined to sanction tho selling of any
wine direct from the winery, as at
present, so that after July 1, the com
pany will dispose of its product only
through Its Pauwela branch.
Protest Against Pauwela Wholesale.
At tho meeting on Thursday II. A,
Baldwin appeared and entered a pro
test against tho renewing of tho li
cense for tho wholesale liquor house
operated by the Kaupakalua Wine &
Liquo.' Company. Tho license was fin
ally issued, however, but It is under
stood that tho company will within a
few months seek a new location pos
sibly at tho winery. No other pro
tests wero filed with tho board.
Application for a saloon license in
Walluku was made by A. Garcia, whilo
Y. Kagawa petitioned for a wholesale
license for Waikapu. Both of these
applications will bo advertised as re
