MARTHA DAVIS BURNS TO WATER'S EDGE
CAUSE OF FIRE UNKNOWN.
LOSS OF SHIP AND CARGO
Water, water everywhere but not a drop to put on the fire.
That was the startling .situation when Capt. Mncloon of the Bnrk
"Martha Davis" found when he awoke about 11:30 o'clock Saturday
night and discovered his ship afire.
The vessel was lying at anchor 111 the stream nnd the captain was
awakened by thestneke which filled the cabins and alley ways of the
ship. He had difficulty in arousing the first and second mates, who had
turned in early and were sound asleep. A search was instituted for the
cause of the smoke and when the forward hatch was opened a dense vol
ume of smoke poured from below. Replacing the hatch, the alarm was
hounded by ringing of the ship's bell, firing blue lights and sending up
rockets, withoud attracting attention from shore.
Almost the entire crew were ashore and they had the ship's boat
with them. Word was sent to the police by a nassinir launch, and it
was an hour after the fire was discovered that the town was awakened
by the sounding of the fire bell. Even then many householders after
getting up to sec where the fire might be, failing to locate it, returned to
The Matson tug "Charles Counsclinan" was sent to the rescue about
midnight and an effort was made to locate the fire. Almost immedately
after raising the hatches, the flames burst through the deck aud were
soon beyond control, despite the fact that the "Counsclman" brought
in all her pumps and kept three streams of water playinc, holes being
cut through the deck and sides of the vessel to give access to the seat of
By half past three the vessel was completely afire, fore and aft, and
the spars and rigging soon became enveloped in flames, making a beauti
ful but gruesome picture to the crowds which now thronged the shores
and lined the Hilo Railroad dock. It was thought that if the anchor
chains could be cut and the vessel brought alongside of the dock, the
fire could be quenched, but the danger to the wharves and shipping In
the harbor by the possibility of the vessel getting adrift was too great
and the doomed ship was abandoned". The burning hull and cargo re
mained afire tluoughout Sunday and part of Sunday night, when a
heavy rain put out the flames, leaving an ugly hulk floating where the
beautiful ship lay before.
No cause is given for the fire, but it is believed that the three hundred
barrels of lime left in the hold became wet and ignited. None of the
cargo was saved and few of the crew succeeded in getting their personal
effects ashore. All Hilo cargo had been landed and the losses amount
ing to about $40,000 will be borne largely by the adjacent plantations,
all of which is insured. The ship is valued at $20,000, making the total
loss about $60,000. Neither the Captain nor Mr. C. Castcndyke, of H.
Hackfeld & Co. who are agents for the owners, do not know whether
the vessel was insured.
The Dark Martha Davis was a wooden vessel, bark rigged, having
been built in Hoston in 1S73. She measures 163 feet long, 33 feet beam
and 21 feet deep. She has plied in the coastwise trade between the Isl
ands and San Francisco for many years. Capt: Macloon had made his
second voyage in her when the fire occurred.

RICI'UJILICAN PRIMAKIKS AK1 QUIUT.
The local primaries through the island were quietly held on Saturday
between the hours of three and eight o'clock in the evening. There
was no great excitement anywhere at the various polling places
and the election passed off very smoothly. In Katt a ripple of
dissension was perceptable between the rival factions and two election
booths were doing business with separate ballots. The so-called Wol
ters element elected three delegates at Naalehu and the Thompson fac
tion voted for three names at Wniohinu. The two delegations will both
come to the County Convention on Thuisday and claim the right to vole
and take part in the proceedings.
Speaking of the Kau troubles, R. A. Lyman, Jr. secretary of the
District Committee said: "It is a very unfortunate state of affairs for the
republicans in Kau to get into, but it is more of a personal fight it ap
pears than any expressed party disloylty. I have kept in close touch
with the situation both at Waiohiuu aud at Naalehu and personally fa
vor the Waiohinti delegation, who were regularly nominated at the meet
ing of the precinct club held at Waiohiuu. The second delegation of
which Mr. White is at the head represents the Naalehu crowd who ar
rived at the meeting too late to make any nominations and .subsequently
held a menting of their own when a new tickst was put into the field. I
am convinced from a careful persual of the rules that the latter delega
tion has no claim for recognition, although that is a matter to be decided
upon by the Committee on Credentials ol County Convention.
In Hilo and Waiakea, where the largest number of candidates were in
the field for honors, the largest votes were polled, although it is stated
the full party strength did not turn out to the primaries. In the Fourth
Precinct (Hilo) the vote stood as follows, the first ten being elected de
legates: L. A. Andrews, 161; Chas. Akau, 155; N. K. Lyman, 142;
W. H. Beers, 141; I. E. Ray, 129; R. A. Lyman, Jr., 128; J. II. Hale,
117; J. K. Paahu, 117; Mahaiula, 113; M. Pacheo, 108; E. E. Rich
ards, 70; W. H. C. Campball, 65; Win, McKay, 50; W. C. Cook, 46,
J. Vierra, 32; B. F. Schoen, 33; W. K. Ragsdale, 23.
In the Third Precinct of Waiakea, the vote stood as follows: W. Geo.
Kailienui, 85, G. F. Affanso, 79; J. McGuire, 75; Sam Kalilikanc, 62:
J. M. Herring, 28; D. Spaulding, 16; Keaakolo, 15; D. S. Bowman, 14;
