Special to The Garden Uland,

tion of black power, dynamite and
carelessness, resulted in the death
of a Japanese laborer here about
half past two this afternoon when
a dillatory explosion occurred on a
piece of work at the makai side of
the plantation. A contract party
was engaged in -blasting and had
supposedly set four holes when in
some unaccountable manner, a fifth
had been prepared, which explod
ed, catching tnc unfortunate man
unawares, striking him full in the
face, with such force as to blow a
portion of his head off, killing him
almost instantly. - Others in the
immediate vicinity were more or
less injured, but not seriously. "

jury with instructions to convene
at nine o'clock to morrow morning

members of whom are J. K. Kula,
Lui McKeague, Jr., Joe Vallente,
Isaac Hart, J. S. Hiba and Manoa.

It' is with pleasure the writer

In the same calm manner, he
turned and gave orders to Capt.
Long to cut off the water supply
from the barracks. Nor was he
shot, for the coolness of the man,
in the very face of death, over
awed the enemy, who realizing
what was taking place, and fear
ing that the food 'supply might
also be cut off, opened the big
iron doors o'the barracks.
Intense excitement prevailed as
t h e great doors slowly swung
open, the rusty, screaking hinges
giving forth their objection to their
part in the drama. It was indeed,
a trying moment.
There stood W.C. Parke, staunch
between his own sol -
diers who stood lined up, with eyes
traveling down gun barrels, fing
ers on triggers,, prepared to shoot ;
at the first mdve of the enemy, and
the opening door which might
provide the outlet for a perfect
stream of deadly fire from the

and possessed the only repeating
rifle in the squad.) Undaunted,
stood Parke, until the big doors
stood completely ajar. And our
excitement had grown almost be

nervously twitching about the
triggers, when at this very critical
moment. "Don't shoot!" shouted
Mr. Parke, raising his right hand,

of one of the bravest of men, was
terminated a bloodless battle, aud
