with salt water. He claims his loss

at-amst the Inter-Island to recover the
amount of ihe damage.
The accident occurred while the
property was being taken aboard the
steamer Manna Kea for Hilo. It has
been taken out to the steamer in a
boat, which was low in (ho water with
the heavy load. The mate on the ship
ordered the stuff loaded through the
side port aft by hand, and sent a num

the boat's crew. The added weight
of these, combined with the effort to
lift the baggage, swamned the small
