The Next Convention
The citizens of Hilo upon whom
rests the responsibility for making
plans for the next Civic Conven
tion are giving much thought to
, the selection of subjects and forinu-
lation of rules of procedure. It
would be advisable to have more
discussion than has taken place at
previous sessions, and to limit the
discussions io topics chosen far in
advance. It would be well also to
encourage in every way the ai
tendance of members of the legis
lature anil of the respective county
governments, so that the men who
must be depended upon for action
regarding the matters discussed
may take part in 'he discussion.

TAKES ANT POISON
Yoshiko Murashige, Japanese
woman, aged 20, living with an
aunt at Kapaia, died in the Lihue
hopital Tuesday afternoon after
drinking ant poison.
The girl worked for her uncle,
Murashige, a tailor in the town of
Kapaia. The ant poison was kept
in the house of the uncle. During
the night of the 8th, the girl took
the bottle and drank most of its
contents. About 2 a. in, (presum
ably soon after the poison was
taken) groaning -as heard in her
room, and her uncle and aunt en
tered the place. The gitl was lak
en soon afterward to the hospital,
where she lingered five davs.
The dead woman steadfast'v re
fused to make any statement as to
why she had taken the poison, and
the coroner's jury, convened on
Thursday, was unable to find out
anything. It appeals that she
came to the Islands as a "pietuic
bride," but refused to accept the
man she was supposed to wed : nd
has since made her own way by
working in the shop of her uncle.
She is sa;d to have been an ex
ceptionally attractive 1 ' o k i n g
voting Japancn- woman.
Tha coroner's juiy returned a
verdict of suicide, but, as stated
above, could reach no conclusion
as to the cause.
The, retaining wall along the
town side of Waimea river was
finished Saturday afternoon, and
to all appearances a verv substan
tial and satisfactory job was made
of it. The wall is of the required
height and thickness, and is of
sufficient length to protect the
town river from floods in the future
P. F. Hurley, the contractor
under whose supervision the work
was carried on, has come in for
congratulations on his complete
Waimea people seem to feel,
however, that the job is not com
plete and will not be until the
sand bank is removed from the
mouth of the river. Of course the
bank would reappear in time again,
but if thoroughly clearul now
it would probably remain so dur
ing the rainy season. Anyhow,

floods as visited it last year.
