Coronor's Jury Fixes Guilt.
After remaining in session all night for two successive evenings and
the searching examination of a score or more witnesses, the coronor's
inquisition empanelled by Deputy Sheriff Fetter, returned a report of
their findings that Moriyama Kiutaro came to his death at Hilo 011 the
2nd day of January, 1905, from wounds caused by a hatchet, knife and
club, and from the evidence produced the jury believed that the deed
was committed by Morita Kizo and two accomplices unknown to the
jury. The coronor's jury consisted of W. S. Terry, Richard J. Lyman,
J. M. Herring, Wm. Weight, K. C. Kubo and S. Sato. Two entire '
nights were spent in examining witnesses, the session of the jury com
mencing promptly at 7:30 p. m. Wednesday and Friday evenings and,
continuing until daylight. Morita, who has been under arrest, finally
abandoned his first claim of an alibi, when he found that his witnesses
had weakened, and finally confessed to having committed the deed, as
he alleges in self-defense. He claimed that when Moriyama Kintaro
came outside of his home in response to his call, that he turned on him
with a cane knife and he killed Moriyama in defending his own life.
This, however, is not substantiated by other evidence brought before the
jury. Hence tne veruict.
, Beach Sand Reserved For the People.
J On December 16th, 1904, Eugene H. Lyman applied to Governor
Carter for a thirty year contract to buy from the government all of the
beach sand at Hilo, and all street sweepings, which he might use for
the sum of twenty-five cents per ton. The letter was turned over to
Superintendent of Public WorksHolloway and by him referred to the
Hilo Board of Trade, asking that body for an expression of opinion.
The executive council replied by calling the attention of the Governor
and Superintendent Hollow-ay to Section 2138, Civil Laws of 1897, with
reference to beach sand, which reserves to the people certain rights
named therein, among others being the privilege of removing for their
own use or for sale, all drift wood, coral and sand from the government
reefs and lands. As the sea beach is construed to be government pro
perty, the executive officers, without the enactment of special legislation
would have no authority to enter into any contract for sale or other dis
position of the sand. Regarding the street sweepings, it recommended
that when the time was ready to dispose of these, that the same be put
up at auction. The Board of Trade are iu receipt of a letter of thanks
frornSupt. Holloway for calling his attention to the old law on the sub
ject, which had escaped his attention.

A Star Production Next Saturday Night.
Rehearsals for the Cook benefit vaudeville are being held nearly every
afternoon and evening, and if the interest which those who are taking
part is any criterion, the performance should receive substantial patro
nage from the public. Mrs. J. T. Lewis, who is musical directress, has
been working industriously in perfecting the choruses, and Mrs. R. G.
Curtis has been painstaking and careful in her training of the various
steps and dauces required in the various features of the program. Doth
ladies have had a corps of sewing women busily engaged in making
costumes for the different parts, which will be both tasty and appro
priate. Mrs. A. G. Curtis is the busiuess manager of the affair, which
as will be seen is a ladies affair, entirely under the supervision of capable
The program has been prepared with considerable care and promises
to present an entertainment of unusual merit, both from a musical and
theatrical point of view. The march of the Colonial dames contains a
number of the society ladies of the town. The Quaker maids and city
lads, iu which seven prominent ladies and gentlemen will take part, is
pretty and catchy. Miss Margaret Tutt of Los Angeles, who is a visitor
in the city, has been prevailed upon to render a vocal solo, and Mrs. R.
G. Curtis of Olaa will probably respond with a vocal selection from the
opera of "Miss Dob White."
William Carlton Cook, in whose behalf, the production is being given,
has promised to recite, and Mrs. A. G. Curtis, who is a brilliant elocu
tionist, will give a recitation. The Killamy Quartette, which has been
so popular in the past, will sing a number of selections. W. 11. Hiser
nian has agreed to give an exhibition of fancy club swinging, and one
of the surprises of the evening will be the whistling of the London News
boy. Tickets arc on sale at the Hilo Drug Store.
