STORY OF EDITH BORAL
WHO DIED IN ARIZONA
HUNTED LIKE WILD ANIMAL IN STATES
Died in Obscurity Rather Than to Grieve
Her Loved Ones One of the Heirs
of the Mahuka Estate
The Mahuka heirs some years ago
sold the property in the vicinity of
Alakea and King street, in Honolu
lu to the government for somewhere
around $100,000. The property was
afterward sold by the government
for a little more than S475.000. The
former owners are now endeavoring to
have the case re-opened, with a view
of securing a larger share of the in
creased valuation. The case is to
be presented in Washington by At
torney W. B. Lymer.
In this connection it may be inter
esting to refer to the case of Edith
Boral, who was a, neice of Mary Mahu
ka, and one of the Mahuka heirs. She
was born at Hana, on Maui. She mar
ried Robert McQuarrie, a haole, who
was by trade a carpenter. Mrs. Mc
Quarrie. shortly after her marrige,
detected unmistakable evidence that
she was a victim of leprosy. She
offered to release her husband, but
he elected to stay by her to the end.
They were at that time living in
Wailuku. They hastened to Vancou
ver, where her father, a haole, had a
store. She said nothing to her fa
ther, concerning her sad misfortune,
however, and she and her husband
left for Los Angeles, where he secured
employment. He hoped to earn suf
ficient money there to take his wife
to Mexico before her affliction was
They remained there some months.
They roomed on North Main street,
in the Mexican part of town, hop
ing to acquire a smattering of the
While there some one noticed the
tell-tale brown splotches on her face,
and reported the matter to the author
ities. The police, who were not ac
quainted with the facts concerning
leprosy, went wild with fright. They
seized all her belongings, including a
. fifty dollar guitar which had been
' given to Mrs. McQuarrie' by her
I aunt Mary Mahuka, and piled them
onto a bonfire built for the purpose
in the back yard. They burned not
only her trunk, with all her trink
I ets, but her suit cases and all her
' clothing except what she had on.
j Mrs. McQuarrie was wild with
grief and shame, and mourned for
days and weeks, after the old Hawaii-
an custom. She was seggrcgalen in
j a tent on the grounds of the County
Hospital, and no one was allowed
to go near her. They were so afraid
of her that the waiter took her food
to her in a basket, which he placed
on the ground about twenty-five feet
from her tent, and ran away.
Her husband was forced by the
authorities to leave her. He contin
ued to work at his trade. Pretty
soon he too showed signs of leprosy.
He then stole his wife away in the
night, and they boarded a train for
Mexico. His wife went very heavily
veiled, and was garbed as a poor

were nearly famished for food, and
went to a lunch counter. There some
one who had seen the effects of lepro
sy in Mexico saw her face. He re-
ported the case to the authorities, and

and quarantined in the suburbs of
Phoenix. Mrs. McQuarrie died with

through his Honolulu agents replied
that If the woman could prove that
she had any Hawaiian blood in her
veins, he would see that her fare
was paid to Honolulu, and said that
Bhe would be well cared for at that
place until it was definitely deter
mined that she had the mai pake,
after which she would be sent to
Molokai. lie offered also to pay
the expenses of a nurse from Los An
geles to Honolulu. He felt, however,
that the haole had no claim for rec
ognition as far us he was concerned.
But the victim refused to come,
stating that she would far rather die
alone in a strange land, than to have
her aunt, her uncle, and her father
learn of her affliction.
When the Mahuka property was sold
could find no trace of her, except that
she' had left Vancouver. The Hawaii
an boys on the Orpheum circuit
knew the circumstances, and detailed
them to the writer.

The government fuel administra

control of fuel oil, and possibly
some of its products. The I'nion
Oil company of California has ser
ved notice on all island consumers
cancelling all quantity and time
contracts, ami has also notified
them that such oil as they may be
able to supply will be advanced two
cents a barrel. The I'nion Oil com
pany strongly urges all companies
to convert their burners so that they
may use coal or some other fuel be

panies in the islands are now using
oil for fuel. There are about fifty
of them, the principal ones being

Banana Fiber for Bags

lulu, says the fibre of the banana
stalk is quite suitable for the manu
facture of bags, and be is carrying
on some experiments along that
line, He says however, that the
growers are a.-king fifteen cents per
stalk, and as it takes a big stalk to
to make two bags, the price asked
is prohibitive. It is estimated that
:.'(), (KM) bunches of bananas are rais
ed in Hawaii yearly, or approxi
mately 1.IKKI bunches a day. The
stalks now go to waste. They would
have to be sold for live cents apiece,
