About 11 o'clock yesterday morn
ing two young men, one a foreigner,
the other a Portuguese, about twenty
one years of age employed at Judge
JlcCully's milk-ranch were badly in
jured by his imported llolstcin Hull.
The foreigner says that the bull has
injured two others before, being of
a bad disposition. He acknowledges
that he was in fault for he had un
tied it, and was feeding it with water
melon rinds and teasing it when it
rushed at him. He haw its move
ment and started to run but fell. It
quickly came up and tossed him two
or three times and gored him. He
has three of his riizht ribs broken at
the side so that they have pierced
the right lung through and pioduced
emphysema or the letting out of the
air contained m the lungs so that
it enters between the lungs and the
ribs. The bull's horn also entered his
left groin tearing through the ab
dominal muscles and entering the
peritoneal lining of the bowels.
The bull afterwards made for the
Portuguese jamming him with its head
against a tree and bruising him
badly so that it is feared his lower
limbs are paralyzed.
Dr. J. S. McGrew was promptly
telephoned for and he and his son
Dr. II. G. McGrew went out and
attended to the sufferers. The
foreigner has some pluck and may
pull through .but the Portuguese
seems to have no stamina.
This is the worst accident of the
kind we have had for years in Hono
lulu. Their names are Martin Ilarkman
and Theodore Perez.
THE DIFFERENT TRADES-THE COW
YARD AND THE JAPAN SEA
All along the btrects in the Chinese
quarters and little stores containing
tradesmen of every imaginable kind.
Each store as n rule consists of but
one room m which two, three, and
sometimes more men are working.
Their wood carving is particularly
well worth seeing it being all done
by hand and with great precision
and neatness ; one man was working
at a large sign-board in Chinese cha
racters, another was working at the
iincst ornamental carving with ease
and rapidity, and a third was making
business stamps, that are so gene
rally used, both in Chinese and Eng
The next place we entered was a
jeweller's where two men were busi
ly occupied in making rings, one
.hammering and rolling the gold and
the other engraving. In the window
vrero some figures in gold of dragons
and deities, which, though not
handsome in appearance to the
European eye, arc undoubtedly
works of great labor and &kill.
Thcu was a basket maker seen busily
making a large clothes basket, his
little room being filled with his wares
in every conceivable shape and size ;
cofiiiis too of all descriptions, long
and short, nariow and wide to suit
the size of the customer. There does
not seem to be much business doing
in eofllns as there was only the one
store and there was no rush of cus
tomers John evidently wants ano
ther small-pox epidemic to make this
business a remunerative one. There
arc bootmakers, tailors, workers in
tin, innumerable fruit stores and
many dry goods stores, in nil of
which the men work on guietly and
busily seldom lookiug up at any
chance-passer by or allowing them
selves to be disturbed by out&iilc oc
currences. Tin: cow YAitb and thi: .tavan h:a
are the names of two portions of
China Town whcic the Chinamen
chiclly live. The houses, some tenan
ted by natives, arc packed closely
together aud all have the same
appearance, unclean, untidy and un
painted. At a few of the doors Chi
nese women were standing, their
children playing out on the roads,
but as a rule the places aic occupied
entirely by the men, except in a few
instances where some native girl has
cast in her lot with the stranger to
her shores, and they btand lazily in
the doorways or sit on the ground
smoking their cigarettes or long pipes
filled with the lightest kind of Tur
kish tobacco. Many of them, sit
ting in their rooms or under the ver
andahs, were playing at dominoes
but no money was to be seen lying
on the tables. They played on undis
turbed as this seems to be their fa
vorite and almost only amusement if
we except shooting, for John is a
great habitue of the shooting gnl
lcrics where six shots can be had for
ten cents, but no prizes arc offered
if one hits the bull's-eye as is the
case in the galleries patronised 'by
the inhabitants of other lauds.
was something new to us. In a
large and airy room at the back of
a building on Beretani.i St. were
four men stripped to the waist and
all cleaning rice. One was sifting
the paddy with a fine sieve through
which heaps of dust fell to the floor.
The other three were standing in a
row on three sliding platforms on
which they were constantly moving
backwards aud forwards, in a never
ending motion. It reminded' us of
old treadmill days but here they
worked harder and the perspiration
poured off their bodies on to the
platforms. The effect of their per
petual motion was to keep a large
wooden hommer rising and falling at
regular iutervals on to the rice which
was in a circular box or container
placed below the level of the floor.
The force with which lints hammer
falls is considerable as it needs must
be to effect such a change in the
colour and cleanliness of the paddy,
its constant and regular motion, its
falling without crushing the rice, the
machine like motion of the men, and
the silence broken only by regular
beat of the hammers makes the
whole scene one of great interest.
