" BETTER LUCK THIS TIME."
On arrival, at the Station House
yesterday morning, Captain Mchr
tens found an anonymous communi
cation telling him that the missing
report on the Mounted Police -was in
a pigeon-hole in the desk of Mr.
Webb, managing proprietor and edi
tor of the Advertiser. . The noto was
handed to Deputy Marshal Dayton,
who, considering it a hoax, enclosed
it in nn envelope to Mr. Webb, and
sent it down by Mehrtcns. Manag-
i,' 'ing proprietor and editor Webb and
ex-manager Lyons received the of
ficer with some surprise and trepida
' tion, but conducted him into their
sanctum sanctorum, although un
armed with the authoritative search
warrant. M. P. and E. Webb and
E.-M. Lyons of course repudiated
all knowledge of the missing docu
ment, but, alas, it was found, safely
ensconced in an editorial pigeon
hole with other ''literary pabulum."
It was carried off in triumph, and
deposited with Deputy Dayton,
through whom it was subsequently
again placed in the safe keeping of
D. A.-G. a. i. Rosa, to be stored
with many musty and manifold
relics at Aliiolani Hale. The
"bulky one" of "legal cap, rolled
up" has again seen the light of day.

', It is unusual to hear that a Chinaman
lias Insured his life, and It is still' more
unusual to hear of such prompt pay
orient of claims as the following. On
16th February, Lee Loy, who was doing
business in Hllo, insured his life in the
;: Equitable Lifo Assurance. Company for
t$3,0Q0, under the fifteen year endow
pient plan. He paid a yeAr's premium
aud d fed In September. On 31st October,
Mr. k. J. Cnrtwrlght, the Honolulu
agent of the Company, sent, to tlio bend
onlec 3n New York, proof of Leo Loy's
death.; Iho matter having been placed
In bias hands two days previously. On
4th D-eoeinber, thirty four days after the
papers, left Honolulu, the wife of the
dceciiscd gave a receipt for 8,000, the
full amount of her claim, the money
having been sent from New York and
handed to her. This lnstanco not only
shows the bencllt of Life Assurance, bin,
also the. very prompt manner In which
settlements aro made by the Equitable
Lifo Assurance Compnnv, which did
not even avail Itself of the powor to
withhold payment for sixty days, in a
policy which had not been In forco for
three years. " 579 lw b
