Tho first paper of the evening
was a Kauai chapter, out of a forth
coming "History of the Roman
Catholic Missions" in these Islands,
giving an interesting outline of tho
establishment of tho work, mainly
at Koloa and Moloaa, and reveal
ing a surprising degree of bitterness,
that verged on persecution, on the
part of the ollicials as well as the

A Filipino convict going under
the name of Felipo lhano escaped
from tho Lihue jail last Thursday
morning and has since been at large.
The police all over tho island have
been notified and are on the look

Felipo, or Felipe, is one of the
men convicted in the Circuit Court
only last week of assaulting and bru

radt, on Kealia plantation. He and
a man named Suarez were sentenced
to not less than two year and elev

in jail. The worst offender of the
three (a man called Jose) was giv

than five years.
