Federal ofllclals Are Much Pleased
Judge Durton Parker, of Washington,
D. C, Supervising Special Agent of the
Treasury Department, accompanied by
his sou Dr. II. M. Parker of Delta, Ohio,
and ex-Governor Caleb W.Wcst, formerly
chief executive of Utah, now special
agent cf the U. S. Treasury at San Fran
cisco, were Hilo visitors last week, arriv
ing Wednesday and returning to Hono
While here Judge Parker examined the
local customs office and will make an
official visit to each of the sub-ports for
this purpose. Mr. West accompanies
him to assist in the work and his son,
who is a practicing physician in Delta,
Ohio, and has been overworked, came
along for the trip.
Governor West gained his title by be
ing appointed governor of Utah by
President Cleveland In 18S6, holding the
position until 1889. He was out during
the Harrison administration, but was
re-appointed by Cleveland in 1893 and
served until Utah became a state in 1896.
The officials visited the Volcano House
while on Hawaii and were much pleased
with the grandeur of the scene. Gov.
West said to n Tkiiiunk representative:
'The volcano is one of the natural
wonders of the world and no visitor to the
islands should miss the opportunity to
witness this great work of nature during
its present activity. Neither Judge
Parker no myself experienced any diffi
cult iu making the descent into the
crater and were gratified with a specta
cular exhibition of the fire display. The
beautiful greenery of this tropical land
surpasses my greatest expectations and
we shall leave the islands with the pleas
ant memory of your people, your climate
aud the beauties of your land."
From here the official party went to

Held For Murder.
Alfred Douse, a pump engineer on the
Spreckelsville plantation at Puunetie
Mill, Maui, has been arrested aud bound
over to the grand jury for murder of a
Japauese. If the story as told by the late
dispatches be true, the crime is most re
volting. Douse ordered his assistant, Yamatuoto,
to bring him some kerosiue. The Jap
anese returned with gasoline, aud when
ordered a second time brought another
can of gasoline. This angered Douse,
who threw the volatile liquid on the Jap
and then applied a lighted match to his
clothes. Iu a moment the man was en
veloped with flames. Several Japanese
hurried to his assistance and succeeded
iu extinguishing the flames, but not until
the man had suffered considerably. He
was removed to the Puutieuc hospital
and succumbed to his injuries two days
It is stated that nt the time the deed
occurred, there were four or five Japanese
around the mill who saw it, and who in
nil probability will testify for the prose
cutiou. Douse has always been highly
respected by those who know him, and
he stood high in the esteem of his em
ployers. He has always enjoyed the
reputation of being a good citizen, and
being n man of family, none of his
friends believe that he committed this
act with any malice or premeditation.
The Japanese Consul at Honolulu has
demnnded a full investigation of the
facts, which is being accorded to the case
by the Attorney General's Department.
