CiiusimI Dynamite Explosion
Killed Hob lhi.llsli.
Wailuku, June 20. One of the
saddest fatal accidents of recent
years happened at Kanului Harbor
last Tuesday morning, June 16th,
when Pilot Robert I,. Knglish lost
his life by the accidental explosion
of giant powder.
Karly that fateful Thesday raorii''
ing Bob Knglish and others made
preparations to go out into the bay
on some kind of an expedition. R.
W. Filler, superintendent of the
Kahului Railroad Company, saw
them from his house getting into a
boat at the Kahului lauding, so he
made post haste for the boat and
succeeded in inducing the others to
get into his own boat, as it was
larger. Mr. Filler wanted to join
the expedition, but at the same
time lie had an eye to business, as
he wanted Bob Knglish and others
to aid him that morning in sound
ing the moorings in the bay, for it
was quite a long time ago that he
and Bob attended to the buoys.
About fifteen charges of giant
powder and about one hundred caps
were also placed in the boat. Kight
got into Mr. Fillers boat, among
them being: Pilot Bob Knglish,
Supt. R. W. Filler, Uaia Napoleon,
Ned Kruger Sr., Akoni.'J. Maka
hio, head stevedore at landing-, Kd.
Benton and Johnnie Knglish. All
went serenely until the party were
several hundred yards away from
Bob occupied the center of the
boat, while Uaia Napoleon, a
brother of Mrs. A. S. Wilcox of
Kauai and Mrs. Kben Low of Ko-
hala, was captain of the boat. Mr.
Filler, knowing of the presence of
the giant powder in the boat, had
some mysterious foreboding as to .1
coming accident, and it was well
for him that he anticipated danger,
so he kept away from the range of
possible injury, although there was
enough explosive in the boat to kill
every one and also smash the boat
Bob stood up in the center of the
boat and threw overboard one
charge, evidently to kill some fish,
but none were killed, as there were
none 111 sight. Bob got Jiold of
another stick and attached the fuse
and cap. Just at that moment the
ashes from his lighted cigar dropped
into the bottom of the boat and im
mediately the caps went off like
thunder bolts. Bob was amazed at
the unexpected happening and, in
the exciteni ut of the moment for
got entirely about the charge he
was holding in his right hand with
the fuse already ignited.
In a few seconds there was a sud
den crash, the charge went off, and
Bob was knocked down into the
boat almost senseless. Uaia Na
poleon fell headlong overboard.
Kruger nnd Akoui, who were near
Bob, received injuries to their lets
irom ignited caps also flying splin
ters, but their injuries are not con
sidered very serious, nlthough they
are both tiutler medical treatment.
Bob Knglish's right wrist was
blown off entirely, while two big
cuts were under his right jaw be
sides other injuries about the abdo
men. These injuries were of so
serious n nature that any one of
them would have resulted fatally, l
but notwithstanding the great loss j
of blood, Knglish survived for ,
nearly four hours afterwards, and I
while undergoing necessary opera
tion at Mtilulaui Hospital by Drs.
Juo. Weddick arid Kd. Arniitage,
ether being administered, Bob Kn
glish peacefully passed away, his
powerlul vitality (tilling lum in
keeping his consciousness almost
until the time the anesthetic was
The sad news of the explosion
quickly went urotiud, bringing con
sternation into nlmost every house
hold in and around Wailuku dis
trict, where the name of Bob Kng
lish is well known. Many were
the expressions of regret and sorrow
that came from the lips of those
who knew and were intimate with
poor Bob in life when they realized
the severity of his injuries, and
when at length life became extinct
a gloom passed over this town, for
Bob was almost a household god to
The funeral took place the same
Tuesday afternoon, which was very
largely attended. The coffin and
mourners were brought to Wailuku
in n special train at 4 p. m., where
the mourners from Wailuku and
the members of Haleakala Lodge,
K. of P., formed into a long pro
cession and started for Kaahumanu
Church, where serivces were held
lasting over half an hour. From
the church the long procession
.headed for Wailuku cemetery. W.
F. Crockett conducted the final
ceremonies at the grave, according
to the ritual of their order.
On Wednesday evening a coron
er's jury convened by Coroner L.
M. Baldwin met at the Wailuku
Court House. The following were
the members of the jury: W. H.
Rodgers, G. S. 'Goodness, Manuel
Faustino, W. H. King, H. B. Wil
kins, and Juo. Ferreira. A partial
examination of witnesses was held
that evening. The jury adjourned
until next week or as soon as Ned
Krttger'and Akoni are'well enough
to attend the inquest. Ned Kruger
and Akoni who were injured to
gether with Bob, are slowly re
covering. Mr. Filler being at the
bow of the boat at the time of the
accident was not hurt at all. It
was fortunate for all those on board
that the remaining 13 sticks of
giant powder in the boat and im
mediately under Bob Knglish, did
not go off at the same time with
the caps, otherwise there would not
have been any left to tell the tale.
Bob Knglish was bom at Tahiti,
one of the Society Islands, over
forty years ago, his father being
the late Captain Knglish, who was
for many years watchman at the
Wilder & Co.'s wharf, Honolulu.
He leaves a wife, a native of Tahiti,
John a brother now at Honolulu,
a nephew and two nieces, the child
ren of his sister, whose remn ns
were cremated at Kahului during
the bubonic plague of 1901. Bob
Knglish leaves an estate woith
about two thousand di ihus. A.
N. ivepoikai has been appointed
temporary administrator of the
estate. Mr. and Mrs. A. N. Kepoi
kai came up this week from Hono
lulu intending to celebrate the
brithdoy anniversary of Mrs. Kepoi
kai, which happy event happened
on June 17th, but reading of the
terrible death in the Bullutin a few
minutes before their departure for
heie, changed their plans, for de
ceased was a lifelong friend.
The inauy frjends of Captain
Parker of the steamer Claudine
hope that he will get the appoint
ment as Pilot of Kahului Harbor.
