Perished in the Storm.
The fierce northern gale that swept over the windward side of Ha
waii Saturday morning, besides doing great damage to trees and grow
ingcrops, caught the fleet of Japanese fishermen, capsizing many of the
sampans and resulting in the probable loss of the lives of three fisher
men. The norther sprung up very suddenly about it o'clock Friday
night increasing iu intensity until about 4 o.clock, when it had gained a
velqcity of eighty miles an hour. The Japanese fishermen who go out
to the fishing banks about a mile off shore, were caught in the hurri
cane's fury, many of the assets leaving their moorings and being blown
mHes to sea. Where the anchors held fast the boats were capsized, and
it is supposed that some of the men weie drowned iu this manner. Only
four boats reached shore in safctv, and early Saturday morning Agent
Guard sent out the tug Charles Counsclman to search for the missing
fishermen. The tug brought in a string of four boats found several
miles at sea. During the day seven more were picked up with their
occupants. The Japanese reported missing are S. Yamamoto, K. Oka
mura and K. Shiraamoto. AH are said to be single men and were alone
in their sampan. One boat was found capsized at the fishing banks,
securely fastened to its moorings, the occupant having perished.

To Improve Police.
One of the objects of Sheriff C. Searle's visit to Honolulu last week
was to secure additional appropriations for the purpose of the Police
force of Hawaii. He laid his proposition before the Attorney General
and Governor, who promised to lend him every assistance, but advised
him to bend his efforts to getting the legislature to increase the appro
priation. The appropriations for the biennial period ending Dec. 31,
1904, for Kauai was $21,000, for Maui and Molokai, $38,400 and for tha
Island of Hawaii, $63,000. The sum for Hawaii is all out of propor
tion, in Sheriff Searle's opinion, to the amount of work done and consider
hie the population and area protected in the three respective districts.
Maui and Molokai have 41 policeman for a population approximately of
30,000, while Hawaii has only 54 policeman lor her population of 46,
843. The proportion of arrests made is: Kauai, 1,498; Maui and Molo
kai, 2,441 and Hawaii 3,534. The Police on this Island have been in
dustrious in making arrests and would have more convictions to their
credit except for the leuieucy of the police magistrates. With over a
thousand more arrests on the Big Island, the amount of fines is $1,000
less than derived from the Maui police courts. Sheriff Searle believes
the Island of Hawaii, with its vast area and population, should have an
increased police force and while in Honolulu, secured the cooperation of
the members irom Hawaii to asbist mm in securing tue necessary appropriations,
The parlors of the First Foreign Church were filled to over-flowing
last Friday evening at the quarterly social given by the Ladies Social
Circle. The rumor that some of Hilo's grown-up Kindergarten pupils
were to take part in the program had the effect of bringing out a crowd
ed house. Refreshments in the way of ice cream and cake appealed to
the youthful minds, and the larders of the church were put to the test to
satisfy the desires of these ravenous youngsters.
The first number on the program was a piano solo by Miss Carolyn
Potter, entitled "If I Were a Bird" by Heuschalt, which she rendered
in her usual excellent style. Miss Genevieve B. Venable in a very
clever monologue depicted the typical Matinee girl attending "The
Geisha". With matinee gown and a picture hat, she sat all through
the rendition of an imaginary play, making remarks upon the "hideous"
costumes, the "frightful" girls and the "terribly" handsone hero.
Miss Venable appeared as a pretty, charming and attractive city girl,
displaying considerable histrionic ability and carrying out the. part
admirably. Mrs. Louis Hapai in a clear sweet voice sang "A Disap
pointment" by Victor Harris. A piano solo "Rusting of Spriug" of
Sinding's, was rendered by Mrs. Jarret T. Lewis, with excellent tech
nique and feeling.
A monologue by Mr. W. I. Madeira, representing a young physician
attending his first case a young baby of three months of age was ex
ceedingly clever and amusing. A banjo solo "The Lost C(h)ord" by
Messrs. A. H. Jackson and Fred Breyman,- was a conspicuous number
by its absence from the program.
Miss Josephine Deyo then ushered iu her Kindergarten class. She
successfully managed in a most motherly manner to minister unto the
various hurts, injured feelings and bruises of her little tots. Prim little
Edna Hayes, the sweet spoiled child, was there with her blue ribbons
and starched frills. Laura Rice and Carrie Potter kept the tears out of
Master Henry Deacon's eyes with profTers of candy and pats on the
shoulder. Nellie Baldwin despite a swollen jaw and the toothache was
the tease of the class. Her tears and sobs while having her aching tooth
attended elicited the sympathy of Jimmie Stacker, the bashful boy, on
his first day at school. Hattie Lewis just four years old, in fact too ,
young for Kindergarten, hugged her rag doll to her maternal bosom
until it squealed, and when Tiny Souza, fat as he was long, pulled the
chair from under her,, depositing her' in a heap upon the floor, little
dollie "Hazel" was dropped and she buried her face in the broad shoul
der of her school inarm. Johnnie Smith and Annie Lindsay made an
interesting pair of youngsters as they danced about in the "Playmate"
game. Johnnie was long and lean as a beau pole, and diminutive Annie
reached no higher than the third button on his waistcoat. Luthie
Severance, the hapa haole, was the bad boy of the class. He led the
children in the singing, especially iu the finger song of "Five Little Men
a Dancing." Lizzie Elliot, a typical "Sis Hopkins" with a half dozen
tightly twisted pig-tails standing like porcupine quills from her tiny
cranium and with adjustable hat to designate her Hibernian descent, was
the tardy pupil who arrived during the "Good Morning to You" song.
The reprimand she received for being late so confused the poor child
that when she was called upon for a recitation she went into a spasm of
hysterical laughter, much to the demoralization of the class. Poor
Dickie Richards was absent, and little Edna Hayes was sure "he had
fallen into the fire and burnt to ashes, and she was afraid to poke him up
again." After singing "The Cat and the Mice" and playing "Five
Little Chickadees," the teacher dismissed the class with the "Good
Bye" song, which they sang with the harmony an absent quantity. Mrs.
L. Turner acted as assistant teacher, playing the piano and keeping the
children iu the ring. All the parts were well tendered, and a few gray
hairs and six feet and four, did not take away from the picturesqueuess
of the scene.
Gre?t credit is due to Mrs. Milton Rice, who, as chairman of the
Entertainment Committee, conceived the idea and to whose efforts the
J success of the evening is due, '
