Mrlftou Alilun KIaIu llli 1.1 fp to Save
J. W. Ahitm, popularly known ns Nel
son, the ranger in the local land office,
while on his rounds In Puna n short time
time ngo, had nn cxpcrlncc which he
does not wish to repeat very soon. On
his arrival nt Knpoho after n hard day's
horseback ride, intending to stop with
his sister residing there, he wns shocked
to learn that she was drowning nt the Iwt
torn of n clifT where no one could get to
her. He ran nearly n mile to the spot 011
beach where it was slated his sister was
In the water. The woman, supporting
herself 011 n log which had been thrown
to her, was slicing buffeted by the break
ing seas. Two stalwart natives nftcr
fruitless attempts to let down n short
rope over the cliff to the woman, when
they saw Aliinn, threw the line Into the
water in their excitement and nil hope of
rescuing his sister in that way was aban
doned. Quickly divesting himself of his
clothing, he carefully cllmed down the
precipitous bluff which was about four
teen feet high, got hold of the rope, pass
ed one cud back to the frightened men
on the bank, nud proceeded to nttncll the
other end to his sister's wrists. The rope
was too short lo be tied about her waist,
and in order to reach her hands resort
was made to a bamboo splice. Carefully
the half drowned woman was brought to
the lop of the cliff, exhausted and with
scarcely a vestige of clothing. She had
remained in the water thiec hours nnd
dusk was rapidly falling when her bro
thcr arrived nud rescued her from a
watery grave. She snffercd only n few
bruises and Ahina cut his hands and
limbs considerably in his self sacrificing
rescue of his sister. It is a custom of the
Hawaiian women to search along the
beach and rocks for oplhi, a species of
shell fish, and it appears that Mr. Ahi
ua's sister had slipped from the rocks
and was rapidly being dashed to death
when discovered and subsequently res
cued by her brother.

the Saturday night previous at the

The American-Hawaiian steamer Tex
an, Lyons, master, arrived In Ililo Satur
day morning from Knhulul and
Honolulu, to load sugar for Dclewnre
Breakwater. The Texan is the vessil
which rnu the Russian blockade with
provisions nnd nrinor plate for the Jap
anese government. The strainer has just
returned from the trip, nftcr making
Hongkong nud Manila nnd arriving in
Honolulu on the 14th instant. Captain
Lyons reports nn uneventful trip nud
modestly refers to the voyage, which he
admits wad not attended without dangers.
The trip was made from Seattle In twenty
days, without meeting or sighting nny of
the patrolling Russian war vessels. In
her cargo the Texan carried ostensibly to
private parties, but for the use of the
Japanese government 378,000 sacks of
American flour, noo tons of steel plate
consigned to Hongkong, China, but dis
charged nt Kobe. There were 500 tons of
locomotives which were likewise consign
ed to private parties, besides 500,000 feet
of lumber nnd smaller cargo.
The American Hawaiian Company were
careful to have their papers straight in
the case of beingovcrhauled, and adopted
the precautionary measure of having all
cargo consigned to individual owners,
which according to international law
cannot be regarded as contraband goods.
It is understood that the Company cleaned

Capt. Wm. Lyons was formerly in
charge of the S. S. Arizonlan, and suc
ceeded to the command of the Texan
after the death of Captain Geo. D. Mor
rison, well known here and who suc
cumbed to typhoid fever at Philadelphia
after leaving the islands. Capt. Morrison
cleared from Ililo on the Texan in April
last, and soon after his arrival contracted
typhoid by drinking impure water served
by the ship's steward. At the sugar
wharves, where the American-Hawaiian
vessels lay is a large tank of pure water
for the use of the ships, but the messboy
carelessly pumped up water from the
Delcware river into which the city
Sewage empties. The water was served
at the Captain's table, Iced and appeared
to be fresh. All of the officers became
sick, Captain Morrison and Chief En
gineer McVicars developing pytems of
typhoid. After n- prolonged illness
Engineer McVicars recovered, but Capt.
Morrison died in the latter part of
August. He was a man who was popular
with crew and officers, and was extremely
careful of all drinking water but fell a
victim of the carelessness of the ship's

Fukusblma's company of wrestlers from
Honolulu attracted a throng of spectators
of all nationalities for several nights last
week in a tent on Front Street. The Ju
bilant Jap invariably resorts to a wrest
ling bout to properly celebrate a holiday
or important event, and the advent of the
imported company of athletes attracted
overflowing tentfuls every night. Many
white persons and other nationalities
were found among the crowd of interested
spectators. There were seventeen wrest
lers in the party, Including Wakamiuato,
the champion of the islands. He is n big
broad shouldered Japanese with muscles
of iron, but on Tuesday night met his
match In Kakubauzan, the Olaa cham
pion, who threw him twice in succession.
On the following evening, the latter faced
the junior champion from Honolulu, and
his uverconfidence was his undoing, for
the lighter-weight wrestler overcame him
in two rounds. A number of the local
talent were easily couqured. The pre
foruiauccs were orderly and largely at
tended by Japanese from miles around.
The visiting company move from here to
Honokua and propose to make the island
