ROBERT INNES LILLIE,
The announcement that the hearing of the two test cases as to the
right of Sheriff Keolautti to make appointments attracted a large crowd
to the court room Thursday morning,
Judge Stanley on behalf of the respondent presented his argument
and was followed by Attorney Smith on behalf of petitioner. Stanley
maintained that Auditor Mnguirc was an executive officer "cjothed
with judicial powers, in that he had the right to pass upon nil claims as
to their validity and correctness. The petitioner would claim that the
County Auditor was purely a ministerial officer and il this contention
were sound, the county might as well have an 'autograph stamp bear
ing the Auditor's signature. He was under bonds and was responsible
for the faithful performance of his office, and it was his sacred duty to
audit all claims, after they were passed or approved by the Board of
Supervisors. He was there as a check upon the action of the Super
visors." Mr. Smith on behalf of the petitioner, replied that the contention of
the counsel that they would give the County Auditor no more powers
than that of a "rubber stamp" was absurd. He believed there was a
happy medium. "Counsel for the other side laid great stress upon the
power of county officeis to appoint their clerks. This power could not
be used in contravention of the right of the supervisors to fill vacancies
and make appointments. The legislature had this in view when enact
ing the law. The supervisors were empowered by the county act to
'contract for services' to put whomsoever they pleased in any subordi
nate office and to make appointments without reference to the wishes of
the sheriff, Admitting that the sheriff had made one; two or three ap
pointments of clerks in his office, Jf they did not meet with the approval
of the supervisors, they could not draw any pay for their services. The
Auditor has the right to exercise certain powers of supervision over
claims which were palpably fraudulent, but where there was no taint ol
fraud, he was merely n ministarial officer."
Judge Parsons took the case under advisement and subsequently
listened to the hearing of the quo warranto proceedings testing the right
of the sheriff to make appointment of police officers.

Hiawatha an Artistic Production.
Longfellow's poem of Hiawatha, adapted as a musical melodrama by
the late Mrs. Saidee Knowland Coc was presented for the first time to a
Hilo audience under the auspices of the King's Daughters. As Miss
Frank Potter read the beautiful lines of the great poet, detailing the
romance of Hiawatha's love for Minnehaha, the Arrow-maker's daught
er, his early childhood, his wooing and capture of the Indian maiden's
heart, followed by the subsequent famine and death of his bride, Miss
Caroline Potter played an exquisite accompaniment of wierd Indian
music and chants characteristic to those people. At intervals there were
tableux vivants under the direction of Mrs. Milton Rice, which were
perfect as to detail and environment. Owing to the failure at the last
moment of one of the cast Mrs. II. L. Shaw portrayed the character of
the Arrowraaker. Henry J. Lyman as Hiawatha made a stalwart brave
of muscular proportions. Miss Harriet Hapai, as Minnehaha or "Laugh
ing Waters" presented a picture of maidenly modesty and Indian beauty.
Miss West took the part of Nokomis, the mother, and Thornton Lyman
represented Hiawatha in his youth. While the attendance was not
large, the affair was an artistic exhibition, musically and otherwise.

Hope Of Saving Alameda,
San Francisco, Cal., Oct. 4. There is still a chance that the steamer
Alameda may be saved. The wreckers are at work night and day.
San Francisco, Cal. Oct. 7. The Alameda has been floated. The
damage done to the hull is not great. The Alameda was surrendered
to the underwriters and is now their property. If the Oceanic Company
wants the vessel thev must buy her.
The S. S. Alameda struck on a rock fifty feet from Fort Point while
leaving the harbor on Saturday, Sept. 30th. The Rio tie Janeiro was
lost about the same spot on February 22, 1901. The pilot C. B. Johnson
was on the bridge besides Captain Dowdcll. Signals of distress were
sounded and the passengers were taken ashore without accident, but not
until they had partaken of luncheon aboard the stranded vessel. It ap
pears that the rock punctured the hull, in the port bow and a steady
stream of water was pouring into her side. There is about a six foot
tide at this point and it is hoped at high tide to float her, provided the
hole in her bottom is not too extensive. Nearly all of of the cargo had
been saved at lust accounts. The report that the Santa Barbara would
take the Alameda's place is unfounded as that vessel has gone ashore
at Mendocino, It is probable that the old S. S. Zealandia, will be put on
the Alameda run.

FRONT ST., Or. SFRECKEL'S BLOCK
In response to the complaints which have gone to Honolulu about the
hoarseness of the whistling buoy marking the entrance to Hilo harbor,
Capt. A. P. Niblack has ordered the old buoy removed and a new
whistler substituted. In the performance of this task the white .steamer
Lehua, which has been seen in the harbor for the past week, has been
sent to Ililo. Captain McAllister, in charge of the vessel, reports that
this work has been fully accomplished, and he took back to Honolulu
yesterday afternoon the old floater to have its throat treated. The Lehua
was formerly in the Wilder steamship service, but was purchased re
cently by Capt. Frederick Miller, who formerly was on the Enterprise.
The vessel has been entirely renovated, and has the appearance of a
yacht inside and out. Captain Miller undertook the contract of over
hauling all government buoys in the islands. Mr. E. N. Shaw of the

month, that the Public Works Department would pay the other half.
The Board resolved itself into a committee of the whole to consider
the proposition, and much to the surprise of Gere and his friends, there
was almost an unanimity of opinion against the proposed arrangement.
Chairmon Moir moved that Mr. Gere be appointed county engineer at
a salary of $100 per month aud the care of his team when in Hilo. "I
have known Mr. Gere ever since he came up here, and have had con
iderable to do with him in road work. I have always found him right
up to date, competent and capable of fulfilling his duties. He works
with a good deal of vim, not in a slow and lazy manner but in first
class order. I think this $100 a month would be well spent by the
County, and Engineer Gere would save his salary to the County every
Supervisor Desha spoke against the resolution, explaining that the
conditions in this county were different from the other islands. "On
Kauai and Maui, the road engineers have charge of road lunas, and
they have 110 road supervisors. I am 111 favor of Gere s appointment
No Cruel Treatment of Lepers.
The Health Committee of the Board of Supervisors sat all Thursday
afternoon listening the charges of Rev. Edward Kekoa regarding the ill
treatment of his daughter as a leper suspect by the agents of the Board
of Health and also heard what other witnesses had to say. The com
mittee, which consists of Supervisors Shipman, Moir and Desha sat in
the Board rooms and gave a full hearing to all who desired to appear
and testify. The testimony of Rev. Edward Kekoa, Mrs. Kekoa, Mrs.
Rowland, Ben II. Brown, E. Namohala, D. S Bowman, R. T. Guard
aud Hoomana, was taken down in shorthand and will be transcribed
by the committee perhaps at a later date.
The complaint of Kekoa was that Agent D. S. Bowman of the Board
of Health had dragged his daughter, a young Hawaiian girl, seventeen
years of age, from the house tearing her clothes, while Captain W. A.
Letter forceably held Kekoa. In his testimony on the stand, the stalwart
