Ghnrlrft Wilcox or Public Works Ho
pnrtment Under Arrest.
Charles Wilcox Clerk in the of
fice of the Public Works Depart
ment was arrested last week at Ho
nolulu charged with having embez
zled the sum of $2,337,85. He was
at once admitted to bail in the sum
of $4,500 with J. S. Boyd nnd W.
H. Humphreys as sureties.
The money Wilcox is charged
with having embezzled belonged to
the Road Board pay rolls. The
Senate Committee says the follow
ing regarding it:
We find that this is in no sense
an "unpaid bill." Warrants for
the several items of this amount
were issued by the Department of
Public Works and the warrants
cashed at the Treasury Department
by the disbursing officer of the De
partment of Public Works. The
money was not forwarded to the
persons to whom it was owing.
They have not received it to this
day and we have so far been unable
to trace the money beyond the cus
tody of the disbursing officer of the
Department of Public Works.'
In the opinion of your committee
the only way in which these claims
can be liquidated is by special Act
to reimburse the creditors, as the
money was paid on their behalf
from the Treasury to thedisbursirj
officer of the Department of Public
Works. We find that it was the
duty of this disbursing officer to
forward the amounts due to the
various claimants who should have
shared in the total sum given above
and that he failed to do so. This
money disappeared in the office of
the Public Works Department while
in .the custody of the said disburs
ing officer. To the fact of the em
bezzlement of this sum of $2,337.85
from the Department of Public
Works and the withholding of the
amounts due the proper creditors
under the Warrants issued, we re
commend that the Attorney Gener
al investigate this matter, to the
end that the gulity person be pro
secuted and recovery of missing
money be had if possible.
Wilcox claims he turned the
money over to B. H. Wright in
stead ol paying it to the men on the
Sound Steamers Collide.
New Loudon, Conn., March 20.-
The palatial Sound steamers Ply
mouth and City of Taunton collid
ed in the fog early this morning
and seven persons were killed and
many injured. The steamers, with
heavy passenger lists, were pro
ceeding at comparatively slow speed
when the collision occurred. The
larger portion of the passengers
were their berths. After the first
shock there was pandemonium on
board. Many passengers jumped
into the sea and the complete list
of the missing in not yet known.
Including passengers and crew,
there were 900 people ou board the
two steamers. The loss of life was
due principally to the panic among
the passeugers. Both steamers were
docked under their own steam.

is intended especially for coughs,
colds, whooping cough and influ
enza. It has becotne famous for
its cures of these diseases over a
large part of the civilized world.
The most flattering testimonials
have been received giving accounts
of its good works; of the aggravat
ing and persistent coughs it has
cured; of severe colds that have
yielded promptly to its soothing
effects, and of the dangerous attacks
of croup it has cured, often saving
the life of the child. The extensive
use of it for whooping cough has
shown that it robs that disease of
all dangerous results. It is es
pecially prized by mothers because
it contains nothing injurious; and
there is not the least danger in giv
ing it, even to babies. It always
cures and cures quickly. The Hilo
Drug Store sells it.
