Interesting Sketch of Miss Charlotte
L. Turner's Thirty-four Years of
Service in Island Work.
In the last number of The FrWnd,
under the bead of "Missionary Emeri
tus," Is published a very lnleresiini;
sketch of the work of Miss Charlotte
L. Turner, which should be of espe
cial interest to the many friend of
this lady on Maui. The article follows:
"After thirty-four years of almost
continuous missionary service on
Maui, Miss Charlotte L. Turner has
resigned, her work as Chinese and
Japanese missionary under the Jloavo
at Wailuku terminating on September
1, shortly after the arrival of her suc
cessor, Mrs. Leslie It. Mathews.
Itofirct at Miss Turner's resignation
is universal. Her career ha been
most fruitful, her fine personality and
sympathetic interest in every good
work being strong factors in lier suc
cess. Although forfeiting her cervices
as oriental missionary. Maul Is to be
congratulated upon keeping Miss Tur
ner on the island. She is to be n com

kawao and Her stroni? Christian in
fluence will continue to be felt in pii
Tht following sketch namos the
conditions under which Miss 'Turner
came to the islands and outlines brief
ly her vr.rk on Maui:
"August 3, 1881, a 'Farewell Meet
ing' was given for eleven missionaries
by the A. B. C. F. M. at Pilgrim Hall,
Boston. Anion? the number were the
Misses Turner and Manross under ap
pointment for the Ainakea (Govern
ment school, Kohala, Hawaii. It was
customary at that time for the Ha
waiian Board of Education to conter
with the Amprican Board as to selec
tion of teachers, hence Misses Turner
and Manroes were chosen by the
American Board for their island work,
but they were to receive their support
from the Hawaiian Board of Public
In September, 1881, the two workers
arrived tn Kohala, and began their
work, being associated with Mr. Ed
ward Dyer, the principal of the school,
and his wife. Ainakea at that time
was a large ungraded school with only
two teachers. There was a growing
desire on the part of Hawaiians for
the English language and Aiiiakea
school became one of the largest
schols in the district. Misses Turner
and Manross remained in this school
six years, there being no break in the
teaching force during that time. It
was the privilege of the teachers to see
the pupils pass through the various
grades, then on to higher educational
work, and some to important busi
ness positions in the islands and else
where. At the expiration of six years
Miss Turner was granted a year's
leave of absence by the Board of
Education, and her co-worker, Miss
Manross, resigned. Miss Turner re
turned and continued in the work. In
addition to her school work, she as
sisted in the Iole Hawaiian church,
and the Foreign church. After three
years she resigned from the govern
ment school work. Later, for a period
of eight months, she took the Chinese
Mission work at Makapala in Kohala,
then under the Hawaiian Board, after
which she substituted for a time at
Kamehameha Preparatory School, Ho
nolulu. "In 1903 she was asked to assist
in the Waihee Government School,
then under the principalship of Mr.
Dumas. After three years she took
charge of the Chinese Mission work
in Wailuku, succeeding Mrs. Fanny
Simpson, the pioneer worker there.
She was associated in her work with
the faithful evangelist, Mr. Teng Ah
Lin, and Mr. .Cling Tong, Chineste
teacher. During the four years re
sidence at this Vineyard street Mis
sion, many pressing needs were met
among the people. The bubonic
plague came to Kahului and quaran
tine laws were enforced. As many of
the Wailuku Chinese had been fre
quent visitors in Kahului before the
nature of the disease was known, an
outbreak in Wailuku was feared,
hence no public gatherings were held
for a long time. The Chinese mer
chants were afraid of an outbreak,
and that their homes might be burned
so they came to the 'Worker' to as
sist in protecting their valuables,
such as jewelry, money, etc. This
was done by placing them in various
safes in the town, after the coin had
been properly submerged in disinfect
ants, and other things fumigated.
"Some of the restaurant men even
asked for wood tn order to keep on
with their business, and the Worker
offered a part of her woodpile. For
tunately Wailuku escaped the dread
disease. When the quarantine was
lifted, several hundred people of vari
ous nationalities came into Wailuku
all needing assistance In the form of
food, and clothing. Money was raised
by the residents, and the little Vine
yard Street Chinese Mission home was
the distributing center, Rev. John
Lewis, then pastor of Union Church,
providing for the men, while Miss
Turner looked after the women and
"In September, 1901, the Alexander
House Settlement and the Workers'
Home sprang into existence through
the earnest efforts of Mrs. N. J. Ma
lone, and was secured through the
generosity of the Wailuku plantation
directors. The way then opened for
a site for a Chinese church. The
Chinese and friends of the Mission
contributed liberally to the erection
of the building, which was completed
the same year. One room in the
church was to be used for school
purposes, hence the Chinese Mission
work was transferred to the Settle
ment site. Since that time Miss Tur
ner has continued her work among
the Chinese, taking in addition the
Japanese work, having been, specially

Young Kohala Girl
Waylaid In Broad Daylight On Way
From School and Stabbed to Death.
Body Dragged Into Cane Field.
HILO, Oct. 18. Further details of
the horrible murder In the Kohala dis
trict have reached Hilo. The murder
ed girl Is Harriet Kunanl, the seven
teen years old daughter of the late
Deputy Sheriff Kunani. The girl was
murdered on October 8 in a cane field
near her home, which is not far from
the Kohala mill.
The young girl attended school at
the Feniinary on the morning of the
murder, and it was when returning
from the institution she met her fate.
As she did not return on time from
school, her mother went in Bearch of
her. As there was no sign of the girl
to be seen the police were told of the
A Japanese automobile driver said
that on his way out from Kohala he
saw a Filipino on the road, apparent
ly waiting for some one, and that he
saw the girl approaching in the dis
tance. The police Immediately proceeded
to the spot, where the Japanese had
seen the girl and there, on the side of
the road, discovered her hat. Then
as the trail led into the cane field,
the police made their way through the
fence and, after getting about twenty
feet into the field, found the dead
body of the young girl. Her throat
was cut and she had many other
wounds on her body.
The whole of Kohala Is stirred up
over the horrible outrage and the po
lice, under instructions from Sheriff
Pua who is on the spot, have arrested
every Filipino who was not at work
on the day of the murder. From cer
tain clews that have been discovered,
there seems to be a probability that
three Filipinos were active agents in
the terrible crime.
According to the doctor's opinion,
the girl had been dead for many hours
when found. It was not till half-past
one o'clock on Saturday morning that
the police found the body.
The people of Kohala are hoping
that the brutal murderers will Boon
be in custody, as many people are
afraid to leave their houses at present
owing to the fact that the mur
derers are still at large. Sheriff Pua
is working hard on the case and is
said to have some important informa
tion that may lead to the speedy ar
rest of the brutes who committed the
Relief Sent To Ship-
Wrecked On Midway
HONOLULU, Oct. 19. Nine men
and one woman, the crew of the
American schooiHer O. M,. KJellogJt,
reached Midway Island Wednesday
October 13, from Lysan Island. The
schooner piled up on Maro reef, Sep
tember 15, and is believed to be a total
loss. Her crew got to Laysan In a
ship's boat, and at Laysan chartered
the sloop Helene of Max Schlemmer.
In this Midway was made.
The ten arrived at Midway exhaust
ed from lack of food, according to an
Associated Press despatch from M;d
way via San Francisco.
Captain Lunn was master of the
schooner. The woman of the party is
his wife. They and the others were
afloat two weeks in the ship's boat
and the Helene between Maro and
Midway. Departure from Maro reef
was September 26, eleven days after
the schooner struck, and Laysan was
reached in two days. The ten remain
ed at Laysan six days, and started for
Midway October 4.
The naval tug Iroquois sailed from
Honolulu for Midway last, Friday, to
bring back the cast-aways, and is due
on her return some time next week.
Anonymous Writer Again
Charges Jail Abuses
Another anonymous letter has come
to hand alleging various abuses on the
part of the keepers of the Wailuku
jail towards the prisoners in their
custody. This letter was received
this week through the postollice, by
County Attorney Bevins, and is doubt
less written by tho same person who
wrote some months ago to the board
of prison inspectors on the same sub
ject. Mr. Bevins may inquire into
the matter, but inasmuch as he does
not know the identity of the writer
of the letter it will be difficult to
establish the truth of most of the
charges. The letter charges that pri
soners, except Hawaiians, are robbed
of tobacco and edibles by the guards
of the jail, and refused sufficient
covering on cold nights to keep them
warm. The most serious allegation
however, has to do with tho treatment
of certain women prisoners by the
The prison board made an investi
gation before of these same kind of
charges, but was unable to confirm
them, or to learn the name of the
writer of the letter.

been identified with its interests dur
ing fourteen years of its existence, as
well as endeavoring to contribute as
much as possible to the uplift of all
nationalities. During the 34 years of
her connection with work in Hawaii
nei, Miss Turner has seen many mark
ed changes in the development of the
country, both in government affairs,
educationally, commercially and along
the lines of humanitarian work."
Weekly Market Letter
Fresh Island eggs are getting scar
cer and the wholesale price has jump
ed to fiOc a dozen. Some dealers are
retailing eggs ns high ns 7!c a dozen
but. consignors cannot expect to get
this when their eggs are sold whole
Bale. Restaurants and boarding
houses find it almost impossible to
make a profit on eggs when they have
to pay 60c a dozen and they threaten
to buy California eggs which they can
get at a much lower rate.
There is a good market for fat poul
try. The price of turkeys has ad
vanced to 4c a pound live weight. It
is likely that the price at Thanksgiv
ing will be between 3.rc and 40c. Mus
covy ducks are plentiful. This is one
of the best table birds raised in the
Islands and a great many more people
should use them.
Cabbage and sweet corn are scarce
and high. A rancher on Molokai is get
ting ready to plant 10 acres of sweet
corn and if he succeeds in raising a
good product he no doubt will be able
to keep a steady supply in the Hono
lulu market. Island Irish potatoes are
selling slowly in competition with
According to a report from the feed
delears the price of dried corn is like
ly to take a big drop in the near
future, due to :arge importations from
the Orient. It is said that the local
growers refused to accept a reason-'
able price for their corn and that the
dealers were forced to buy outside
corn against their wiahes. This is
unfortunate, if true, and may mean
that the grower will have to sell at a
much lower price in order to compete
with imported corn.
The price of hides has dropped v
due to depression in the hide market
on the mainland.
