German Schooner Captured And Is Destroyed
Off The Port By Japanese Battleship
Another German Schooner Arrives
But Succeeds In Running The
Gauntlet And Reaches Safety
Inside Honolulu Harbor
They have had some exciting
times between Japanese and Ger
man vessels at Honolulu in the
past few days, one schooner, the
Aeolus, arriving there from the
" South Seas, being destroyed by
the Japanese battleship Hizen-; and
the Hermes, from the same des
tination, slipping past the battle
ship and finding a safe haven un

THE AKOLUS SUNK
The gasoline schooner Aeolus,
which had beaten her way up from
the Marshall Islands, arrived off
Honolulu Saturday morning. She
evidently was not aware of .the
ntesence of a Japanese man-o-war
off port, for she steamed boldly
forward, with her German flag
flying. In the meanwhile the Jap
anese warship had lowered boats,
tlie crews of wiiichhad no difficul
ty in overhauling and capturing
the schooner. The Aeolus was
tied up behind the Jaoanese battle
ship as a prize.
That night (Saturday) the Aeo
lus was towed by the Japanese
about a half mile astern of the

THE SECOND ARRIVAL
Sunday afternoon the second
German vessel of almost the same
kind as the Aeolus appeared about
10 miles off Diamond Head. She
proved to be the Hermes, from the
Marshall Islands. Soon after she
was sighted, it was to be noticed
that the Hermes was crowding on
steam and was rushing to get with

succeeded in doing, and proceeded
to hug the reef-line around toward
In the meantime the battleship
Hizen had scut out boats to inter
cept the schooner, as they had the
Aeolus. These boats followed the
Hermes until they (the Japanese)
reached the three mile-limit from
shore, when they were warned by
tke United States Cutter Thetis
and gave up th'e chase. The Her
mes then made port in safety.
There were two hot games of

some of his decisions were fierce.
John Fernandez umpired the
second game, which was between
the Japanese and Huleias, resulting
in victory for the former, fi to 7.
This game was won by the Jap

CHURCH MllVfflra IN
The convention of the Kauai
Protestant churches held in Wai
mea last week was one of the most
interesting in the history of such
on this island. Delegates were
present from all over, and a num
ber of leading church workers were
in attendance from Honolulu.
The central theme for the con-
sideration o f the Convention in
place of the usual detail reports
from the churches was "The Ideal
Home" introduced by J. M. Lvd
gate on behalf o f the Program
Committee who emphasized the
significance and importance of the
home as the matrix in which
must be developed the best quali
ties of manhood and womanhood.
Our sugar mills and pineapple
canneries are not our most import
ant factories after all, for our
homes put forth a far higher pro

subject comprehensively from the'

phasizing the ajisolute necessity

C. H. Brown, the scrap iron
dealer of Honolulu, was the quite
unintentional cause of considerable
alarm in the region between Koloa
and Waimea last Friday, and it is
hard even yet to persuade some
ueople down that wav that there
was not a battle between Japanese
and German mcn-o' wt.r at sea
not far away.
Mr. Brown bought hundreds of
tons of old mill machinery at Ko
loa, and took fourteen wreckers
down then- to km ck it to pieces.
Some of the m lehinery was so
large and unwieldy that it had to
b e blown t o p.c-es with giant
powder. One immense fly-wheel,
in particular, took a charge of
powder thrrt went off like a battery
of cannon. And that was the noise
that the good people v heard all a-
long the coast, and made them
fear that the horrors ot actual war
fare had arrived at their doors.
The more nervous telephoned all
over tlie island to Waimea, and
Eleele and Lihue, perhaps Hanalci
to find out just where the bat-
t ing fleets were located; but no
body appeared to know. Finally
the roar of battle" ceased, and in
due course nerves returned t o
In t.ie meanwhile, the. men em
ployed by Mr. Brown 'at Koloa
were gathering up the fragments
of the machinery which had been
blasted out, preparatory to ship
ping it away.
At about 7:30 Saturday night the
Koloa police, assisted by specials,
raided a gambling game which
was flourishing in the Eleele camp
between the restaurant and the
Kauai Railvay premises, and bag
ged nine ot the principals. The
prisoners put up bail ranging all
the wav from $10 to $50 apiece,
the total being $215.
Monday morning the case was
called in the Koloa court, but not

gamblers were professionals who
had gone in there from the outside

players succeeded in getting away
