THIS GARDEN ISLAND. TUESDAY, DECEMBER 26, 1916.
The Story of Piilani
(Continued from last week,) ,
Several days later they got the
news that Mr.Stoltzand pome police
men all armed with revolvers and
guns had arrived to Ret the lepers
and particularly to capture Koolau.
When Koolau heard this he said:
"It may he their idea, hut the man
who tries to do that will do so at
the peril of his life."
Tins word was hrouRht to Stoltz,
and he sent word hack that Koolau
would repent it if he refused to
obey the orders of the authorities.
Koolau took his gun, kissed it and
held it to his breast and talked to
the Run as if it was a friend and
charged it to stand by him and
shoot straight, and from that time
Koolau kept guard and shortly af
terwards they saw a tent being put
up on the beach, and he thought it
was to watch him and some of his
friends went down to find out for
One day Koolau, Piilani and the
child went makai on the path by
the stream, and there they found
Mr. 8toItz's raincoat with some
crackers in the pocket, also a blan
ket, and Koolau told Piilani to take
these things along with her. Short
ly afterwards they met Pcnikila, a
policeman from Waimea, and Koo
lau asked him, where Louis Stoltz
was, and Pcnikila said, he did not
know, but thought that Louis Stoltz
had cone to Hanalei. A little later
they met Peter Nowlein, a police
man from Hanalei, and Nowlein
told them that I)uis Stoltz had gone
further up the valley to catch Koo
lau by surprise. Koolau ami family
kept going till they reached Kan
meheiwa's house and found there i
lot of their friends. Koolau told
them that he was in search of Louis
Stoltz and if they were afraid told
them to go somewhere else. Peni
kila was there and Koolau upbraid
ed him for telling a falsehood and
told him he ought to lw shot, but
told him he would lorgive mm, as
he was after Louis Stoltz only. The
most of the people went further
down towards the beach.
In the evening of the following
day Koolau came out of the house
in which he was hiding together
with Piilani and two young fellow
by the names of Iwa and Kala, who
had been staying in the house
Koolau and Piilani sat down on
some stones near the house and were
watching. It was bright moon-light
Between nine and ten that night
Koolau heard a noise and said :
Here comes the haole. I can
hear it is his foot-steps. Here are
two of them." Koolau kissed hi
wife and said: "May be we neve
Kala and Iwa ran out of t!
house and Louis Stoltz snug out
Kala, do not move, took out, you
arc liable to be shot." And they
heard a gun being cocked. Shortly
afterwards they saw the shadows of
Koolau pushed Piilani behind
him and then Koolau shot. 1'y the
flare of the iight she sr.v who was
Stolt.'s partner. It was a man by
the name of Paoa, one of the lepers,
that Stoltz had caught in the moun
tains. When Koolau shot, Paoa
ran over to Stoltz, and Koolau told
him to look if Stoltz was dead. Koo
lau then asked Piilani to go and
look, and when she got to Stoltz,
she saw him on his-knees, and Paoa
shouted shoot." Koolau shot his
second shot, and that killed Stoltz.
Koolau turned to Piilani and s:iid:
"It was a question, who was to die
first. Louis Stoltz or I." Piilani said:
"That is so, if Paoa had not called
out shoot, you would probably
gotten the worst of it, as Sto!. had
his gun cocked." This happened
on June 27th lSOIL
After this Koolau told the people
that he had killed Stoltz. A man
by the name of W'uhincaloha was
the first to come to the place where
Louis was lying dead, later came

time in the small hours of t lie morn
ing Kaumeheiwa arrived at Mr.
Faye's residence at Mana and told
urn the startling news. Mr. Faye
lephoned Mr. (leo. N. Wilcox,
ho was at the time the acting
icriff of Kauai
An uncanny thing happened by
Kaumeheiwa going to Mr. Faye and
telling him about Mr. Stollz's death.
When Ix)uis Stoltz started on his last
trip to Kalalau, he called on Faye
his way to rolihale, and Mr.
aye told him to be careful, as Koo-
ui was not a man to be fooled with
md reminded him of the fact that
Koolau was a famous hunter and
marksman. Stoltz expressed the be
lief that Koolau woujd never carry
out his threat, "but "said Stoltz "if
he kills me, I will send my ghost to
tell you." When Kaumeheiwa came
to Mr. Faye's place in the night,
the dogs made a terrible noise, and
Faye got up to rind out the cause
for all the barking and he heard n
voice saying: "K Paea, ua make o
,ui." (Faye, Louis is dead.) On
iccount of the cloudiness of the sky
Faye could not sec anybody at tin
place under the trees from where
the voice came, so it' sounded like
Stoltz was cariying out his promise.
The following morning Koolau
aid to Piilani : 4 My work is done,
we will now go to the mountains
vnd wait for the end." And they
tailed with their child, followed by
Paoa and others. When they had
gotten high up in the valley, they
saw the steamer "Waialeale" com
ing from the Hanalei side. The steam
er came to get Moltz s hotly. Alter
the steamer had left.Koolau and his Tip Top Bui'dmp
family went down makai and stay-
d with friends. One day Paoa met
i friend from the beach, and he
told him that the steamer 'Iwalani'
was coining with police, soldiers
and implements of war to take Koo
lau. Some of the people wanted to
go with Koolau, but he told them
to go makai and to the lepers to
give themselves up to the authori
ties, and he also told Piilani and
the child to go makai with the oth
ers, hut she utterly refused to leave
him. They then went to the cave
in a ledge in the pali of Kalalau
called Waiinakemake. where there
is a straight precipice above and a
perpendicular bluff below. The
le Ige was covered with vegetation
oi. both sides of the cave.
On il:e following day they heard
people speaking English and they
also saw the soldiers burning some
of the houses, and started to shoot
at the pnli, but the soldiers evident
ly had no definite idea of Koolau's
lliev stayed quiet in the cave,
which gave good protection Afier
a whne I'jilani saw Koolau pointing
at something, and when she looked
she saw a while man with, a red
undershirt near the opening of their
cave. iMoiau shot nun and she
saw him fall down the pali aid
heard the ret reating of others. Koo
lau kept watch all that night.
the next day the shouting con
tinned and Koolau told Piilani,
that they would put on their uod
clothes, so they be decently dressed,
when they he killed, which they ex
pected on that day, ami Koolau
even suggested to shoot his wife and
child and afterwards commit sui

The fellows below were continual
ly shooting and stones and dirt
were flying at the opening of their
cave. They had no water or any
thing to eat and suffered greatly
from hunger ami thirst, particular
ly was the child in evident agony
They had nothing to eat or drink
for four days and .decided to move
that night. In the lii'ht they
crawled down the pah to the hot

crossed the river. the current was

they had a hard time to get over.

There are two highly Important
points for a man to consider before
having his car overhauled.
The first point is to assure himself
that the men who are going to worK
on his car are mechanics expert
enough to locate and properly repair
all the parts that need attention.
The second point is to convince
himself that ho can trust the shop to
give him an honest accounting cftho
amount of worh. that was actually
done on the car.
We gladly welcome an investigation
on both of these points. We have
the facilities, the worhmen and the
busmess methods that will more than
satisfy all who investigate.
