Hung Himself to n Tree
Early Saturday morning, Deputy
Sheriff Fetter was summoned to Papal
kou by the report of the suicide of a Jap
anese at the plantation camp located at
Kalawa. The dead man was named
Horishigo Hatsutaro and had been mis
sing from the camp since the Sunday
previous. Ou Friday afternoon a native,
while hunting for breadfruit, discovered
tue oouy Hanging to an oma tree some
distance in the woods. The Hawaiian
came excitedly into camp uud reported
the discovery to the police. From the
condition 01 the remains, the body must
have been hanging for several days.
There was every indication pointing to
deliberate suicide. The tree was grow
ing out of a hole, some fifteen feet deep,
and the Japanese after t ing his sash obie
about his neck and a limb of the tree,
had plunged over the brink to his death.
Deputy SherifT Fetter as coroner impan
ueled a juiy at 6 o'clock in the morning
and after reviewing the evidence leturued
a verdict of suicide. The cause of the
man's rash act is attributed to ill health
and the partial loss of his sight, which
had prevented him from doing manual
labor for several mouths. He was un
married and bore a good reputation.

Wednesday Inst, the first of the month.
There were a few invited guests present to
witness the formal transfer of authority
from cx-ShcriffAiidrews to SherifT Searle.
In a brief speech, SherifT Andrews pre
sented to Mr. Searle, the new SherifT, the
insignia of his office, a gold star. SherifT
Searle then responded, after which Attor
ney Carl S. Smith made a few remarks of
welcome to the new' Shcrifi, whom he
assured would have the support of the
entire community in the proper adminis
tration of his office. The ceremony was
brief nnd to the end very fqrmnl, n fca.

Ou the day previous, SherifT Searle
had all of the police officers of the local
forec summoned and addressed the body
first in Hawaiian auil then in English,
telling them what he expected of them as
subordinates and as representatives of
law aud order. Sheriff Andrews intro
duced the incoming Sheriff to each officer
in person, to whom SherifT Searle spoke
a friendly word of greeting or recogni
tion, where n former acquaintance had
made them friends.
Sheriff Searle addressing Deputy
SherifT Fetter, the officers nnd men, said:
"So long as every officer does his hity,
he will not be disturbed. An officer will
not be removed except on charges and
summary action will not be taken with
out careful and thorough investigation of
such charges. There will be no changes
for the present and things will move
along ns they have heretofore. I
shall expect every man to do his duty
and to carry out the law without fear or
favor, to treat the poorest individual,
whether he be Japanese, Hawaiian or
Porto Rlcnn with the same courtesy as
the richest white man in the laud.
"If force is encountered, of course, it
tdtould be met with force, but I do not
desire any brutality or harsh treatment
of prisoners on the part of police officers
in my department. I want the public to
respect a police officer by his badge of
office and not by physical strength."
Turning to Deputy SherifT W. A.
Fetter, SherifT Searle said: "With refer
etice to yourself, I nm glad to say I have
had favorable reports of you and I nm
glad to know you and to have you as an
officer under me. As my deputy. I shall
demand the same respect due me to be
shown to you aud nt any time any officer
docs not respect your orders, you will be
expected to prefer immediate charges
against the offender, and if these charges
are sustained, his services will be dis
"It is necessary that respect be shown
to all superior officers whether the official
be myself, my deputy or the captains
and lieutenants of police. I am glad to
have met such an able and fine lot of
officers and men, aud trust we may get
along together harmoniously."
At the conclusion of the mooting and
before the officers had withdrawn.
Deputy SherifT Fetter, stepped forward
and ou behalf of the body gave notice to
Ex-SherifT Andrews that at a Inter time,
the men desired to present to tlie retiring
official a testimonial, which SherifT An
drews said he would be glad to receive.
The officers aud men then withdrew aud
resumed their duties.

(Irantlng Extension to Mr. I'eck.
While in Honolulu Inst week Mr. Phi
lip Peck, President of the Kohala & Hilo.
Railway, had an Interview with Governor
Carter regarding the matter of granting
an extension to the present promoters to
enable them to complete their arrange
ments for financing the road. The Gover
nor has ordered a public hearing to be
held In Honolulu 011 Tuesday, February
14th, ns wilt appear from public adver
tisement in another column,
"It seems," said the Govcnor in re
ferring to the matter, "that the franchise
required the Kohala Railroad Company
to finish certain work within two and n
half years after the approval of the sur
vey of the road, and this time expires
about in April. Mr. Peck wants nu ex
tension of time in order to be able to do
the work. He has already done n great
deal townrds the project. A complete
survey has been made of the line, which,
while it will go through Hilo and llama
ktta districts, as far as Walpio I think,
aud traverse the richest lands in the Is
lands, will offer a great many engineer
ing difficulties. The numerous deep gul
ches which cut up these districts will
have to bo bridged. The estimate of the
cost of bridges alone is a very large one.
The company has also gotten a large
number of rails on the spot and Mr. Peck
says he will very soon be nble to go abend.
The reason why the work hos not been
completed has been that certain firms
failed, but now Mr. Peck expects to hear
in the near future from a combination of
New York capitalists, who arc to interest
themselves in the road.
"I told Mr. Peck that it wa9 most cer
tainly to the advantage of the community
to have the road, but before granting the
desired extension of time, I should want
to hear all sides of the matter. If after
this it appears that Mr. Peck and his as
sociates arc more likely to build the road
than anyone else the extension will be
granted. If, however, there are others
in the field who can show better qualifi
cations no cxtensioi will be granted.
The present company is of course
already in possession of certain great ad
vantages, which a new company would
have to gain before it could start on the
work, and is thus just so much ahead of
all others. The company obtained its
franchise from Congress nnd has also
been released from the blanket franchise
which the Dilllugham-Olaa railroad has
over the entire island of Hawaii.
"To settle the matter and to give all
parties interested in the matter a chance
to have their say for or against the grant
ing of the time extension I have given
instructions to advertise for a public
hearing, which will be held here on Feb
ruary 14. All interested can attend this
meeting personally or send in their views
by letter. The date has been set for Feb
ruary 14 so as to have the hearing before
the session of the Legislature begins."
Mr. Peck claims that the delays which
have occurred are not chargeable to him,
but are the result of conditions in which
he found the road when he took hold of
the project for the purpose of financing
it. He has expended a considerable sum
in the preparation of surveys, estimates
of cost and several trips to the Coast and
the East in the interest of the enterprise.
He feels, however, that the purpose of
securing a public hearing is simply an
effort ou the part of certain parties, whose
claims have not been satisfied, to further
embarass his financial operations in the
East. In his conference with the Gover
nor he expressed his entire willingness
to submit the matter to public approval,
whether this public utility should be fur
ther delayed by refusing him an exten
sion of time. Mr. Peck has confidence
tn the ultimate success of his negotiations
with eastern capitalists, who have the
matter well in hand, and will shortly de
termine whether or not they will take the
whole or part of the bond issue. In the
meantime an opportunity will be given
the objectors, if there are any, to Mr.
Peck's management of the allatr, to ex
