It wna a winter ulght. Tho wind
was driving n tempest of Buowflukd.
Tho street lamps shono dim. Except
for the storm thero was not a sound.
No footfall could be beard on the snow,
nnd thcro was no ono abroad.
I had reached th'o town of M. a few
minutes before by train and, finding
no conveyauco at atho station, had
started to walk to my hotel.
Suddenly, midway between Btreet
I imps, where it was dark, I ran against
a man. I stood stock still. The snow
on either sldo of us was deep, nnd I
waited for tho man to divide the way
with me. Instead of that he began to
talk to himself incoherently, seeming
to be unconscious of my presence.
"Horrible," bo muttered, "horriblot

"You seem in trouble," I said In a
"Trouble! Isn't It trouble that there's
but one person in the world who can
help olid who won't help? I told him
mother was dying; that I had been sent
to the drug Btore for a prescription and
hadn't a cent to pay. He told me to
I remembered that all my change bad
been spent, and I had only a ten dollar
bill. I would go with the young man
to a drug store, pay for the medicine ho
required nnd give him something be
sides. "Come," I said, "lead the way to a
"I only fear they aro nil clMed," he
said. "It's very late."
He led me to one 'drug store after an
other. We found every one closed and
no ono to answer a night bell. I had
been with blra neaijy an hour. This I
knew, for I had arrived at ten minutes
after 11 and tho town clock was now
striking 12, nnd, having made a failure,
1 was obliged to let him go home with
out his medicine. As we were about to
part I was fumbling in my trousers
pocket with my keys and other articles,
when I clasped a silver half dollar.
"Here," I said, "take this coin. It's a
pocket piece of the year of my mar
riage, with my wife's and my Initials
scratched on it. Take it. You'll need it,
He seized the piece eagerly, then turn
ed and vanished in the darkness.
It was Uiree months after this that I
had occasion to go to M. again. I am
a lawyer by profession and bad a case
to come off In court there. Having
some time to spare at the courtbouso
before my case would bo called, I stroll
ed into the criminal court room.
A man was being tried for tho mur
der of bis uncle. It seemed to be a very
plain case against tbo accused. He was
very poor nnd bis uncle was very rich,
and the accused was sole bclr at law.
The prosecuting attorney proved con
clusively that the young man had every
inducement to kill his uncle from tho
fact that the old man was making ar
rangements to leave all his property to
endow certain institutions. It did not
appear to me that the defense bad any
case at all. Indeed, the last person
known to have been with the murdered
man, nnd that only an hour before bis
death, was the accused.
There were so many heads between
me and the prisoner that I did not for
some time get a good look at him.
When I did, there was something about
bis face and figure that was familiar
to me. The prosecuting attorney was
summing up to the Jury.
"Wo have proved," he said, "that the
prisoner was with tho murdered man
as Into as 11 o'clock; how much later
we cannot prove, but no one saw blm
leave. At half past 11 a cry was
heard; a maid entered tho old man's
bedroom and found him dying. Thero
was a convenient uoor tor tno murder
er's escape without being seen. At
half past 12 the prisoner was arrosted
011 the street muttering maledictions
against bis uncle."
The last words brought back a pic
ture that had appeared to me on that
stormy night thrco months before. I
waited till the speaker bad finished,
then said to the Judge:
"Your honor, I am an attorney. I
believe I can throw some light on this
case and request your permission to
examine tho prisoner."
After much wrangling permission
"Havo you ever seen me -before?" I
"Not that I remember."
"Did I not meet you ono night three
months ago when you wero going for
medicine for your mother?"
"I met a man. If I could find him
I could prove my Innocence."
"What did you do with tho coin he
"I gave it to my mother. It is now
In the bands of my attorney."
"Ou that coin," I said, turning to
tho Jury, "are my Initials and those of
my wife. It is a half dollar coined In
1801. I met this young man on the
night of Jan. 20 last a few mlnutea
after 11 and remained with him till
shortly after 12.1
Amid a sensation tho coin was pro
duced nnd found to be as I bad stat
ed. The Jury found a verdict of not
guilty without leaving their seats.
About to be convicted. ( killing bis
uncle, the accused In a twL kllng found
himself exonerated and heir to a for
tune. I met him and his mother soon
after thu trial at their home and tound
her recovered from an Illness that last
ed till her son's acquittal. They have
since been among my best friends.

Land Commissioner Pratt has de
cided not to receive the applications
for the opening of various tracts of
land in Hito district, which have
been pouring into the land office
from several new settlement asso
ciations by the last two Hilo mails,
says the Bulletin.
He takes this action after having
conferred about the matter with the
Acting Governor, who approves of
this course. Pratt will write to the
various settlement associations con
cerned to this effect, and will ad
vise them of his reasons for standing
"I am going to write lo the set
tlement associations which applied
for the opening of various tracts of
government land in Hilo district,
advisiug them that I will not receive
their applications," said Laud Com
missioner Pratt today while discuss
ing the matter. ' Also that I do so
with the approval of the Acting
Governor. The reason why I will
not receive these applications, is in
the fact that the leases, under which
the lauds in question are at present
being held, will not expire for
periods ranging from fifteen mouths
lo four years. These associations
evidently filed their applications at
this time with the idea, that if they
were received, their members would
be in on the ground floor, and
would have first choice of the land
when it was finally opened. Now,
it would manifestly be unfair that
these people should in that manner
be allowed the .pick of these lauds
to the exclusion of all others, even
citizens who might be as well quali
fied to take them up as they nre. I
urn going to explain this in my let
ters to them, and also the fact that
the refusal of their request mllst
not in any way be interpreted as a
refusal ou my part to open the lands
in question, when they revert to
the government, upon the termina
tion of the leases under which they
are now held."
The settlement associations re
ferred to are as follows: The Kaone
Settlement Association, which
wants the Kawainui tract at Ono
mea, the lease of which expires on
July 19, 1908; the Kaapoko Settle
ment Association, which applies
for the io6-acre Kaapoko tract at
Papaikou, the lease of which ter
minates March iC, 1907; the Antone
de Souza Settlement Association,
which seeks the 2io-acre Kaupa
kuea tract at Pcpeekeo, which is
under a lease that has until June
17, 1907, to run ; J. M. Kaui Set
tlement Association, which is after
the Kaieie tract, between Papaikou
and Onomea, which Is leased until
July 1, 1 910, and one more associa

Messrs. R. A. Wads worth and
W. L. Decotoof theKoolau Rubber
Company have returned from a
personal inspection of the com
pany's plantation at Nahiku and
are highly pleased with the outlook
of rubber on their plantation and
the others in that vicinity. Mr.
Wadsworth says the trees that
were planted from seed last June
are now as high as fifteen feet and
are thriving beyoud belief. Tb$
company has twenty-five acres
planted or ten thousand trees all of
which are doing well. Practically
all of the lands are cleared and
ready for planting and as soon as
the seed and plants arrive, which
will bi soon, the work will go
The lands were practically all
covered with a heavy growth of
trees and brush and it has cost but
six dollars per acre to clear the
land while the digging of the holes"
for the planting has cost but one
cent per hole. This is due prin
cipally to the fact that the soil is
loose and free from stones and as it
is free from grass it is an easy pro
position. It is confidently expected that
the growing of rubber will be one
of the most successful industries ou
the island and will make possible
the utilization of many acres of
laud that are now useless, Maui
All llauallnns for Kuhlo.
Col. Inukca's advice that Hawaii
atis stand by Kuhlo shows that the
color line is being sharply drawn
in the Congressional contest.
Iaukca is the Democrat who
for Congress against Kuhlo two
years ago. Most Hawaiian politii
cians agree with Colonel Iaukca iff
this matter and the more potent
ones in nil three parties are expec
ted to unite and push Kuhio to the
front. His friends have no hesita
tion in saying that, if he is denied the
Republican nomination, he will be
supported by the great majority of
native voters as an independent
candidate. Hawaiiaus have come
to regard the post of Delegate as
their own race prize and are jealous
of any attempt which may be made
to get it, even temporarily, for a

There is probably no mcdccinc
manufactured that can be found in
more homes in the United States
than Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera
and Diarrhoea Remedy. It has
been in general use for over thirty
years and each successive epidemic
of Diarrhoea and dysentery during
this time has tested its merit and
proved its superiority over all simi
lar preparations. The reliability
and prompt cures of this remedy
have won for it the confidence of
many phystclaus who often pres
cribe it in their practice. No case
has ever yet been reported where
its use has failed to give relief.
