OPEN KONA LANDS.
Work of EiccuHto Council at
Honolulu, Oct. 21. Seven thous
and acres of land on this island arc
to be thrown open by the govern
ment for purchasers who may de
sire to secure good grazing prop
erty. This was decided upon yes
terday at a meeting of the Execu
tive Council, where the plan was
broached by Land Commissioner
E. S. Boyd. The land is located
at Lualualei, near Waiauac, and is
said to be in good grass. The land
will be sold in not less than' 500-
acrc lots, under special agreements,
to such purchasers as may desire it.
This is the largest tract of land
offered on the Island of Oahu for
It was decided also to withdraw
the Honuaula lauds on Hawaii from
sale as homesteads and convert the
tract into a government park.
There arc three thousand acres in
the Honuaula tract, covered with
fine virgin forests which it is de
sired to preserve intact. Though
there are applications for the land
by homesteaders, it is valueless for
agricultural purposes because of its
inaccessibility, and it would require
an expenditure of between $16,000
and $17,000 to build the required
road. For that reason the land
has been withdrawn from sale.
This tract is in the Kona district,
and was visited by Mr. Boyd upon
his last trip to Hawaii.
It was decided also to throw open
three lots for homesteaders in Pu
At Mahaiula on Hawaii is one
tract of fifty-four acres, which is to
be put up for sale at auction.

Annrds Will be Mndo for Ten Per
Acting Treasurer H. E. Cooper
today wrote a letter to Acting Aud
itor H. C. Meyers, instructing him
that he had on hand in the Treas
ury money to nay ten per cent of
the awards of the Fire Claims Com
mission. Reference is to the$i40,-
000 interest on the Hawaiian pub
lic debt of which payment by the
Federal Government has just been
received. It is Mr. Cooper's de
sire that warrants for the percent
ages be issued tortmvitu to tuc
The instruction comes almost as
a shock to the Audit office after its
working day and night for weeks;
preparing warrants for one-tenth
means to make those for one-third,
the first of three installments orig
inally planned, so much waste
paper. Scratching out the amounts
entered in the signed warrants and
writing in those for which money
is immediately available would be
a species of patchwork against
which the Acting Auditor's in
stinct of neatness revolts. In fact
Mr. Meyers thinks it would not do.
Mr. Cooper considers this diffi
culty not his concern, any more
than the pending litigation in cer
tain insurance matters complicating
"All I have to say is that the
money for payment of one-tenth of
the awards is in the Treasury,"
Mr. Cooper said this morning. "It
is up to the other departments to
arrange for the payment of that
proportion. The sum of $140,000
would be of considerable benefit,

Yonng Frenchman Gets Three Ycnrs
for Mall Tampering.
Honolulu, October 21. Jean
Sabate was sentenced to prison
for a term ot three years for
violation of the postal statutes, and
the first indication of prison walls
brought forcibly home sent the
tears streaming down the cheeks of
the young Frenchman.
Sabate will have to serve but two
years, three months and a half,
provided that he complies with the
prison rules. The U. S. Statutes
provide for the commutation of
sentence amounting to seven days
in each month, where the term of
imprisonment is three years or
over. This will give Sabate a to
tal of 252 days to be gained by
good behavior. On the first count
of the indictment Judge Estee im
posed a six months' term of im
prisonment, and on each of the re
maining eleven the sentence was
for three mouths, making a total of
three years. In the event that no
appeal is taken the remaining three
indictments hanging over Sabate's
head will be dismissed.

Whaler Encounters Shark.
Honolulu, October 16. The
schooner Julia E. Whalen of Mar
cus Island fame, returned last night
at 10 o'clock from her first trip to
Hilo and back under the command
of Captain Harris, who commanded
the schooner Charles Levy Wood
bury, which is at present laid up
for minor repairs.
Captain Harris states that he is
thoroughly satisfied with his new
vessel. She is a splendid sea boat
and proved herself to be so in the
bad weather she encountered com
ing back from Hilo.
The trip to Hilo was accom
panied by fine weather with a good
trade blowing. On the way back,
however, she met such weather off
the Hamakua coast as has never
before been seen by Captain Harris
in that locality. There was a very
stiff breeze blowing and for the first
time in his experience Captain
Harris ran down from Hilo with a
The sea was very heavy, even
out of proportion with the wind,
and the deck was washed from time
to time. However, no damage was
Captain Harris reports that on
the trip out a shark was seen such
as never was seen by anyone on
board before. It was over seven
teen feet long and had j'aws of a
tremendous size. Still more strange,
it was spotted black and white so
as to resemble a leopard. It fol
lowed the vessel for five minutes
and then disappeared.
Porto IMcan Wields Scissors.
Derogacia Mathero, a Porto
Rican invaded the Japanese camp
at Nine Miles last Saturday night
and stirred up a mighty row that
ended in his capture by Captain
Lake. The Carribean was thirsty
and was looking for a Yokohama
brew. The Japs tried to eject the
visitor, who produced a pair of long
bladed scissors and went after his
assailants. He reached for the
carotid in the neck of one; he punc
tured the left lung of another and
slashed the groin of a third. In
the attempt to escape hurriedly the
Porto Rican struck his forehead on
a board and almost lost his scalp
lock. Captain Lake had a small
fight on hand before he mastered
his man, but succeeded in bringing
him to the Hilo bastile.

No Opium in Ciiamiwrlain's
Cough Rumkdv. Many cough
cures contain opium. The effect of
this drug is to diminish secretion of
the mucus, and the relief afforded
is only temporary. As soon as the
effect of the opium passes off, the
malady returns in a more severe
form. The system is also weakened
and rendered more susceptible to
cold. Chamberlain's Cough Rem
edy does not contain opium in any
form. It affords relief and leaves
the system in a healthy condition.
It always cures and cures quickly.
