HANA, June 23, 11 a. m.: Five are
dead, one is dying, 27 others are badly
hurt, while a dozen or more are
are suffering from minor injuries, as
the result of a .wreck on the railroad
of the Kaeleku Sugar Company, which
occurred at 4:30 o'clock . yesterday
A gang of between 40 and 50 Japan

Mokae section of the plantation be
yond Hamoa, were without a sec
ond's warning dumped into a Strug
gling mangled, screaming mass of
humanity upon the rocks at the bot
tom of Haneoo gulch, when the en
gine left the rails in crossing the 25
foot trestle, and went over taking 3
cars with it. .That more were not
killed outright is the remarkable
feature of the accident; but as it was
scarcely a man escaped without inj
ury.. Within a few minutes after the
disaster occurred, a relief train was
sent from the mill to the scene, and
a force of volunteer helpers began
the task of separating the wounded
from the dead.
Church Becomes Hospital
As (lie injured were removed, they
were rushed to the Catholic church,
which was thrown open as a hospital,
and where Dr. Lltchenfels with a fonn
of volunteer assistants strufifded for
hours to relieve the suffering. This
was in a measure accomplished hefore

all tlint could he done under the cir

The injured men are suffering from
all manner of hurts fractured arms
and legs, lacerations on all parts of
heads and bodies, and Internal injur

of Hana are enrolled as nurses for
the injured. Fortunately a trained
nurse from Honolulu Miss Pollst

ku at the time, and her services
have been invaluable.
What caused the engine to leave
the rails is not known, but the nc
cident could not have happened at a
worse place. The fireman, Tokush
Ige, and the cane cutter Murai, were
pinned beneath the wreckage and in
stantly crushed to death. The China

Pleads Guilty Of
2nd Degree Murder
Waikapu Slayer Saves Neck Grand
Jury Soon Pau No Arlion In Fcr
reira Matter Trial Jury Next Week
The grand Jury, which convened for
the June term cf circuit court at ln
lmliiH on Wednesday, finished its work
the same day and was excused for
the term. Three true bills were re
turned. During the session County
Sheriff Clem Crowell was before the
inquisitors. It is understood In con
nection with the irregularities which
led to former Deputy Sheriff John
Ferreira's alleged resignation. How- J
ever, no other witnesses were exam
ined in Wie matter and no indictment
The following charges were return
ed as true bills:
Narclso Tolarion, murder.
Juan Josaldo, assault with a weapon.
M. Kammo, embezzlement.
In the case of Antonio Gillen, the
Filipino charged with subornation of
perjury In connection with the testi
mony In the Tolarion murder case, no
true bill was found.
Murderer Pleads Guilty
When arraigned for plea on Thurs
day morning, Tolarion. the Filipino
murderer pleaded guilty to murder in
the second degree. He will bp sent
enced next Monday. This is the case
of the Filipino laborer who shot and
Instantly killed a fellow-countryman
onApril 9. and wounded a Filipino
woman, who was the occasion of the
f dispute which led to the killing. As
the murder was practically unpro
voked, according to witnesses, the
murderer doubtless considers himself
lucky to be allowed to plead guilty on
lesser charge. The crime was commit
ted in the Filipino camp nt Waikapu.
Juan Josaldo, Porto Rican, will
maek plea on Saturday to the chatge
of having chopped up a Mexican at
Makawao, with a cane knife, as an in
cident to consuming a jug of wine.

will plead later.

HOLY GHOST FEAST AT PAIA
DRAWS BIG CROWD
A crowd estimated at at least 1500
persons attended the Holy Ghost fest
ival at the Paia Catholic Church last
Saturday evening, and an equally large
gathering again on Sunday morning.
People came from all parts of Maui,
and the affair was a most pleasant
social as well as financial success. In
spite of the fact that a thousand or
more were fed at the free luau, the
receipts from various sources amount
ed to about $!i75.
Much of the credit for the success
of the entertainment is due to the
hard work of the committee composd
of Manuel Nunes, Jr., chairman, J. M.
Feiteira, vice-chairman, John M. Me
deiros, secretary-treasurer; C. S. Cap
ellas, and J. F. Souza. Mrs. James
Shaw, who had principal direct ion of
preparing the luau was highly congrat
ulated on her success with this feature.
New Hotel Coinpany
Gets Liquor Permit
Hana To Have No More Retail Saloon
lfi Licenses Granted
One license less than at present, Is
the net result of the meeting or the
board of license commissioners for
Maui, held on Monday of this week.
After Jnly 1 there will be 16 places for
the authorized sale of liquor instead
of 17. There will be no retail saloons
In the Hana district. Ah Ping not
having applied for a license at. Kipa
hulu. and I,. Y. Aiona's application for
renewal of his Hana saloon license
heing refused. The thirst of the dis
trict, however, will be assuaged thro'
one wholesale liquor establishment, a
4icense for which was granted to J. A.
In the town of Wailuku an addition
al license was granted, this being to
the Grand Hotel Company, which is
shortly to build at Main and Church
streets. An application for a first
class saloon license by Antone Garcia
was refused. In all other districts lic
enses were granted as they exist at
Hana And Kuiahs Protest.
Strong petitions of protest came be
fore the hoard from Hana and the Ku
laha HniUu-Pauwela districts against
the issuing of licenses. The chief op
position in Hana was to the present
retail saloon. A petition signed by-
some 50 names protested against any
form of license, as did a letter from
John Chalmers, manager of the Kaele
ku Sugar Company, and letters from a
number of other persons.
A petition signed by abont 60 home
steaders and others of the Kulaha
section, opposed the granting of a
new license to the Kaupakalua Wine
and Liquor Company for Its whole
sale store at Pauwela, while a petition
of about the same length was for it.
F. G. Krauss appeared in person and
spoke strongly against the issuance.
R. A. Wadsworth. representing the
company, urged the granting of the
license on the grounds that without
the Pauwela store as an outlet, for
the winery, that institution must be
forced out of business, and that such
an event would be a heavy blow to
some two or three hundred Portu
guese small farmers of the Kaupaka
lua district who own stock in the
wine company, and depend upon it
for the u'ilization of their grape crop,
their chief means of livelihood.
In Wailuku, A. Pombo, proprietor of
the Aloha saloon on Market street,
narrowly missed losing his license
when a motion to refuse his applicat
ion and grant that of Antone Garcia
was voted upon. D. II. Case and C. D.
Lufkin supported the motion, while D.
C. Lindsay and W. F. Kaae opposed.
The deciding vote by Chairman T. B.
Lvons was against the motion.
The Grand Hotel Company was
authorized to open a bar in temporary
quarters pending the completion of
its .hotel building.
I,. R. Mathews, of the Alexander
House Settlement, made a verbal
protest against granting any liquor
licenses in the town of Wailuku. No
protests were made against granting
any of. the applications except those

The reports of the various commit
tees indicate that most of the depart
ments are going to be fully up to what

reason that popular interest Is very
keen on the matter of the fair. One
interesting report was made by Wm.
Senrbv who has charge of the agri
cultural machinery division. It is
probable, said Mr. Searby, that sever
al firms will bring gasoline tractors
to the fair, and the agents have asked
for from 5 to 10 acres of land on which
to demonstrate the capacity of their

Other kinds of farm machinery will
be disnlaved. it was stated, as will a
