A New Year's eve masquerade ball
wrb given last night by tbc hoy.i of
Maknwell in their clubhouse. It was
ln?uly attended by guests from the
Whole Island ami some front Honolulu.
Tho stxo of the affair could bo Judged
by llio loni? line of automobiles
parked on both sldos of the street In
front of the club.
Tho grounds wero lighted with long
festoons of Japanese lanterns which
punctuated tho brilliant moonlight
with charming effect. Insido tht
house tho decorations were both taste
ful and appropriate. Flags of various
kinds woro draped about the walls
tho Stars and Stripes piedominntlng
while potted plants and fancy lanterns
completed a pretty picture.
Tho costumes were of all kinds and
colors, some of them showing evidence
of considerable thought and careful
attention to detail. Ono would have
to lio a closo observer and a student
of tho dress of various historical perl
oils to bo able to dellne and appreciate

To classify ono young lady it was
necessary to consult works on orni
thology. entomology and pomology to
find out whether she was a bird, a
butterfly or a peach. If the wings

enough for fishing but it mado little
difference, for no amount of "camou

ono so charming. Tho littlo bird

two girls witli tho dirigible skirts, the
ono in white, the other In red, all
came in for a sharo of attention; while
the dark-haired beauty in old rose
old rose waist and old roso skirt, old
rose slippers and old rose hoso was

array of hues and shades.

Antanacio engaged learned counsel
to defend him and tho case was on

the courtroom had to be cleared of all

It seems Atanaclo, very much in
love with a comely Korean maiden
of a little more than fifteen summers,
had enticed her away from her moth
er's custody, the young lady evidently
willing, and was living with her at
Llhuc when arrested at request of
the outraged mama.
Atanacio was duly convicted after
a lot of hot legal sparring and given
tho minimum fine by tho Court and
emphatically enjoined to sin no more.
On Saturday Anatalio Piniar, an
aged Filipino, was brought up in Court
for examination -as to his sanity and
upon the expert testimony of Dr. E.
X. Young, resident government physi
cian, tho man was committed by the
.ludgo to the Honolulu insane asylum,
it appearing to tho satisfaction of tho
Judge that tho above named Anatalio
I'iuiar was an insane person, and that
tho public safety requires his restraint
until ho becomes of sane mind.
Hereby hangs a sad talo comiuenc
ing with Anatalio boarding the Kiuau
at Nawlliwlll on December 18th bound
for Honolulu, how ho foil down an
open hatch In tho after hold, sustain
ing concussion of tho brain and prob
ably a fractured skull, causing his
present predicament. He was remov
ed to the Llliuo Hospital, where he
aas been cared for since.
Anatalio and a grandchild were on
their way back to tho Philippine Isl
ands whero they wero to enjoy a little
money saved up by tho old man, and
now ho is a public charge without
fault of his own.
While at tho Lihuo Hospital, Anata
lio, who had developed somo cunning,
escaped from tho institution on Fri
day with only ills regulation nightie
on and mado a bee lino for Kealia or
beyond; traveling at tho speed of a
runaway auto, lie successively passed
through Kapaia and Hanamaulu with
flying garment, leaving a vacuum in
the air so to speak, frightening people
along tho road, who thought thoy saw
.1 ghost; when ho had in an almost
incredible time nearly reached the
Wailua bridge, ho was overtaken by
the minions of tho law in hot pursuit
In an auto and captured.
Now Anatalio is Honolulu-bound
again, but for tho halo pupulo, and it
all seems a pity, but ho stands an
excellent chanco of recovering sub
stantial damages from the transpor
tation company if lie over becomes of
sane mind again.
On Monday four gamblers forfeited
