Unearthing tho StkIhiii oT I 0 tlx
for Public Moiirr.
Honolulu, l'eb. 26 There was nearly
n sensation in the trial of the Wrightcnse
this morning in Judge dc Holt's court,
when the defendant's attorney asked
witness Manuel Cook if he could iden
tify the writing on an "I O U" given by
someone to secure the payment of n sum
of public money loaned from the office of
the Superintendent of Public Works by
and with his knowledge and consent by
11 clerk of the office.
Witness stated that he had known of
the practice of loaning public money.
He had never done any lending himself.
He also knew of quarrels between Iloyd
and Wright regarding the way things
were being run in the office. lie did not
hear them quarreling about lending
money out of the office.
Cook, continuing, said he did not know
if former Treasurer W. II. Wright had
the combination of 11. II, Wright's safe,
where the money was kept, but thought
he did. Iioyd had the combination as
well as Wright.
Witness further stated that for some
time there had been a defalcation carried
on the books.
The defalcation had taken place be
fore Wright went into the office. Whose
defalcation it was the witness did not
know. Witness stated that Wright had
never remarked to him that as soon as he
got the cash straightened out he would
make him (Cook) handle it and the
books too, us he didn't like the way
money was being loaned.

"Mutilated Coin" is the subject of
hourly dialogues at the bank windows,
just now. The calling in of the Hawaii
111 Coinage by Congress has rendered
acute, the subject of mutilated coin. It
lias been found out that according to the
rules and regulations Jof the U. S. Treas
ury, to mutilate a coin, it is not neces
sary to cut it into a thousand pieces or to
twist it into fantastic shapes. A nick in
the edge, a smashed bar in the Hawaii
an coat of arms or a facial blemish on the
visage of the good king are fatal to the
legal tender qualities of an Hawaiian
j With mutilated coins as in many other
things the Hilo Police Department is
made the scape goat. It is charged that
nearly all the scratched coins in the Is
land were "marked" by the police for
the purpos6 of catching Che fa players
und illicit sellers of intoxicating liquors.
"Marked Coin" was a favorite form of
evidence on the side of the Territory in
the prosecution of cases at the recent
term of Court. This fact has given cur
rency to the story that the sheriffs of
fice has debased the coin of the realm.
The supply of marked coin left in this
neighborhood will be sufficient to supply
several detective agencies a number of
As to County Names.
"Speaking of names for the counties to
be established on this Island," said Mr.
Severance, Hilo's late Postmaster, the
other day, "wc should call the one on the
other side Koua County and the one on
this side Hilo County, lloth arc short
and euphonious. Iloth are historic and
both are easily remembered. There is
nc- telling how many hundred years this
place has beeu called Hilo. It was prob
ably called Hilo before the United States
were thought of, A name which is a
part of the history of a place should not
be cast aside. The same may be said of
all Hawaiian names. However few are
so short and wcllfitted to become a part
of the English language as Koua and
"Such names are far preferable as
against the names of Senators or public
men in the Slates. These individuals
can be honored in other and better ways
than by tacking their christian names to
political divisions of the Hawaiian Is
lands." Mir Tourist Party.

Treatment of lllnoil Poisoning That
Kemorrft Urcail Terrors.
The application of one of the latest
medical discoveries by Hilo physicians
resulting in the saving of a life, that had
been given up as lost, cannot fall to
arouse interest throughout the islands
and call attention again to the fact, that
in Hawaii, one branch of science and
human endeavor Is not permitted to (all
behind the times. The practice of
medicine in Hawaii is in the hands of
men of strength and learning.
The case Oils article refers to is that of
a woman who on last Sunday night was
not expected to live from hour to hpur.
Her temperature was 10S. Her pulse 170.
Stic was unconscious and blood poisoning
had apparently done its work.
Dr. Holland mid Dr. John I. Grace
held a consultation and determined as a
last resort to apply 11 remedy recently
pronounced by the Surgeons of Hellcvue
Hospital as a specific for septicaemia or
blood poisoning. It was to inject a
solution of formalin into the veins of
Formalin is one of the most powerful
antiseptics in medicine. A drop of un
diluted formalin on the back of a cen
tipede causes it to stiffen and die instant
ly. It is used extensively as a disinfect
ant. No sooner had the two doctors agreed
that there was no hope otiltidc of ttic
most drastic measures than they prepared
fof'onc of the most delicate operations
Kuuwu iu surgerv 111111 ui iiiiuhui; u 1
liquid into the circulatory system, A
formalin solution of 1 to 5000 was pre
pared. The vein in the right arm of the
patient was opened and about one quart
of the life saving fluid forced itilo the
patient's blood, now heavy with the dead-1
ly poison ot septicaemia.
The results were astonishing. The
temperature beitan to fall at once and in
less than twenty-four hours, was normal.
The heart beats slowed down to the even
pulsations of health and consciousness
returned. An operation had been per
formed involving what a few days ago
was pronounced by a leading medical
authority in the United States, id be one
of the greatest modern discoveries in
medicine. The two physicians are to be
congratulated upou their success. Not
so much are they to be congratulated for
the unerring skill with which they per
formed a delicate and dangerous surgical
operation, as they are to be congratulated
upon the possession of a daring faith
which meets emergencies and effects real
In the Hawaiian Islands and other
tropical countries blood poisoning is n
dreaded and deadly malady. The germs
of poison in the blood in the majority of
cases baffle the skill of physicians. It
would seem that a severer case than the
one herein referred to could not have been
found with which to test the efficacy of
any remedy. The case had symptoms
more dangerous than those that marked
the condition of the patient in Hellevuc
hospital, upon whom the first operation
It is a credit to the medical profession
of Hawaii that one of the first hull dozen
cases to be successfully treated under the
new discovery was here in the tropics
and was done less than sixty days after
the first announcement made by the Hel
lcvue Hospital Staff.
