ON STEAMER HALL
More than $700 worth of high
grade opium was seized by Marshal
Smiddy aboard the Inter Island
Steam Navigation Company's
steamer W. G. Hall yesterday a
few minutes before thnt jacket
left for Kauai ports. A number
of arrests are expected but the
marshal would not give out any
Acting on a tip received earlier
in the day Marshal Smiddy made
his way to the pier where the Hall
was docked. He looked as if he
was going on a short voyage and
several iriends shook hands with
the official and bade him a good
trip. A quarter of an hour before
sailing time the official boarded
the steamer. He sought H. Kaipo
freight clerk of the packet, and
from him secured permission to
make a little investigation of his
own in the hold of the vessel.
Kaipo accompanied the marshal
and assisted him as Jcrates, boxes,
bags and packages of all descrip
tions were overhauled. The mar
shal then came across a small par
cel which bore resemblance to a
description given him. The pack
age was opened and, to the aston
ishment of the freight clerk, it
was found to contain five packages
of enshee and seven one-pound
tins of Hongkong No I opium.
The contraband was seized by
the marshal and lugged by him to
his office, where it now reposes in
perfect safety. Ere this the con
signor will have been taken into
custody, but the consignee will
wait and whistle over in Kauai for
the expected merchandise. 'The
Christmas exercises were carried
out bv the Sunday School of the
Lihue Hawaiian church in Lihue
Social Hall Saturday evening. The
place was filled with young and
somewhat older folk, and all had a

consignee was to receive the goods
at Lihue, the goods to have been
lauded at Nawiliwili. the seaport
of the Garden Island county seat.
"I am confident that at last we
are sure who is the kingpin among
the opium smugglers in Honolulu
and I don't think he will escape
this time," the marshal said yes
terday. "We have the goods on
him, and, if I am not much mis
taken, he has a warm time coming
his way at a not very distant date.
We have had our suspicions of the
man and he lias been under watch
for some time past." Honolulu

Candle Light Service
When the power coes off it is
uncommonly dark at Eleele. That
i s what happened o n Sunday
evening when the little community
gathered at the hall for service.
Not to be beaten, however, lalf a
dozen candles were coinuiandered
from the store near by, the people
gathered round them, and the ser
vice which followed recalling pri
mitive davs, was more than usually
inleresting and impressive.
In spite of the limitations of
light the singing was particularly
good. Especially enjoyable was
the soprano and tenor duet "0
love that will not let me go" by
Miss M. Wood and Mr. W. N.
Stewart, who with others had come
freni Lihue for the occasion.
