QUICK JUSTICE; MURDERER
Kanagawa was- hanged this morning,
hanged until he was dead. The doc-
tors after about eight minutes said
his body was dead, all right, and High
Sheriff Henry conducted the painful
duty with the -neatness and dispatch
that characterize all such regretablo
.functlon under his jurisdiction.
, Kanagawa was a Japanese and he
dlcd for killing his wife, having slit
her throat in the servants' quarters of
tho Judge Lindsay residence in College
Hills some time ago.
Kanagawa made no scene, but went
to the gallows stoically, -thus r'cllev-

means was the first In many months.

Ing his guilt and expressing regret that
the deed had been committed.
The execution followed the crime
more quickly in this case than in any
otner In local, history, with one excep-
'"lion, the crime having been committed
only a few months ago.-
While everything In the way of the
hanging arrangements was accom-
pllshed without accident, one incident
of significance occurred. It will be
remembered that Kanagawa, after he
had cut his wife's throat, attempted to
kill himself, Inflicting a ghastly wound
in his neck.' He was taken to the
hospltal and for a time his life was
despaired of, the doctors laboring en
thusiastically to save his life, though
they were saving It for the hangman.
During. the drop, when the rope tight
ened about the neck of the wife-murderer,
the old wound opened, tho flesh
breaking at the strain.

One of the features of pay day which has become familiar to large
employers of labor Is women at the pay offices pleading with their hus
bands to get them to go home without making calls at saloons en route.
It. is seen almost every Saturday.'
The Honolulu Iron Works, the draying and stevedoring companies,
are all accustomed to this pitiful spectacle. Leaving tho pay office
a large proportion of the laborers drop In at somo saloon or other
on their way home, with their week's wages in their pocket. Then begins
the "treating" and the rapid drinking, and spending. In many cases It
ends with a drunken husband andfather going ho"me in a hack", with per
haps a few fish and some poi and a big bottle of gin, and little money,
sometimes none at all, for the home.
That is why the women come to tho pay offices and plead with their
husbands. That is why the women and mothers are happy when they are
able to go home arm in arm with their husbands, direct from the pay offlco

cable from Washington received this
morning from Attorney F. E. Thomp

notwithstanding the fact that she has
just returned from a successful trip

three Japanese bird-poachers from

It is known that instructions have
been received from Washington, or

the Thetis had returned from the
westward islands there were orders
received here for her to get back on
the beat again, as it is believed that
there is a schooner to be captured and
more prisoners to bo made.
As was previously published, the lo

so before her arrival, when wireless
communication was had. It Is stated
