without, my knowing it.' I 'did not

Mriry was the only person 1 saw go

saw him nowhere else. L.can dis
tinctly hear a noise upstairs::-.-! can

what is said.
Ane (w), sworn. I was in. jail
on Saturday night. I slept in the
third room from Mnluihi on the same
iloo'r. My room is locked at night.
Mnluihi opened it on Sunday morn
ing. I don't know exactly the time.
It was daylight. 1 was nwako before
my door was opened. I heard foot
steps from the dining room on the
roof. The footsteps were very light.
I then heard a crush and after tiro
crash I heard the footsteps coming
back.. I thought the. lamp in the
hall was broken. Malaihi told me
afterwards that his window -was
broken. He was in the hall before
my door was open. Abont two
minutes after the crash I
Portuguese woman was walking iu
the hall. It is easy to distinguish
steps above from those below. If a
person passed with bare feet I could
not hear him. If anybody had gone
to Malaihi' s room and had a con
versation, I would have heard them.
By Mr. Davidson: I heard no
conversation' on the roof before the
fall. I heard no struggling. First,
I heard steps going out, then the
breaking of the glass, and then the
footsteps coming back. It. was not
long before I heard Malaihi say he
Had some news. When I came out
they wore carrying thojiody up
stairs. They brought him back
again at once.
Kanalo, sworn. I was on guard
from 12 to 3 o'clock. Buckle went
out at 1 o'clock.
By Mr. Davidson. Mr. Buckle
did not speak to me. lie had Ids
usual clothes on.
By Jury. I don't know whether
he had been drinking or not.
I'uahaiia sleeps inside and outside.
He went in at half-past two.
D. W. Dcnby, sworn. I was in
the telephone ofllec at 5 :30, Sunday
morning. I received a message for
Dr. Brodic in a female voice. I did
not hear any message in a male
Hooikaika, sworn. On Sunday,
morning I left my house on Iwjalea,
at 5 o'clock. I was alone. Outside
on to the road I saw a light. An
drcz held a lantern and was standing
alongside where Buckle was laying.
Andrez walked to the upper side of
the prison, and I walked iu the
other direction. Then I saw Ma
laihi come out. Andrez met Malaihi
half way between the corner and the
gate. Malaihi had no lamp. Malaihi
asked Andrez if he was dead out
right, and Andrez said yes. I saw
no more as I went away. I was
about five feet from tliem in tho mid
dle of the street. I came into town,
had some coffee in Hart's and heard
that Buckle was dead. I saw some
thing lying there. I saw nobody on
top of the parapet. Malaihi and
Andrez spoke in native. Andrez
I am a donkey driver. I never
said that I saw Mr Buckle fall from
the parapet. It is not my business
to measure distances.
Mr. Davidson asked the jury if
they wished to re-examine the physi
cians or Malaihi.
Mr. Dayton said of there's any
thing boys not , clear at the end well
recall them. We might as well tnck
the Spaniard right on.
Andrews Camacho, sworn. I was
in the stables when Buckle fell, and
I sleep insido tho prison. Clmrlio
. Clark let mo out in the morning
through the mnuka gate. I did not
notice who was tho guard.
I fixed up the wagon, and
groomed tho horse. Malaihi came
for a board, that was the first I
knew of Buckle's death. I was at
the carpenter's shop. I had a lan
tern and hunted for a board. Went
with one and saw Mr. Buckle there.
A lot of guards and tho family wero
there. The only time I met Malaihi
was when ho wanted a board.
By Mr. Davidson. Buckle was
not lying there when I went out.
I WU9 in tho stable about half an
hour. Mr." Buckle was dead, There
was plenty of blood, it lias been
washed away by mo and another
person. It was dark when wo washed
off the blood. I saw no vomit. Ma
laihi ordered mo to wash off tho
hlojxl when I moved the body.
. Kauhano, sworn: Don't know tho
, time Bucklp left Kaaia's house. I
came with him from the'liouse a lit-
tlo way. Wlion wo parted we said
iv"iy. W. hb.sw wu wuya wiiuu

I only saw him take one drink.. It

fire-crackers. Ho was not diunk,

'Henry Aul,-swoin. 1 was at tho
feast at Kaiu's. I came home Willi
Tesln. Mr. Buckle was there when
wo left. As 1 passed (lie prison I
saw two men walking from us on the
walk outside. I didn't notice-if the
gates were shut. I don't know who
they were. Joe Knaiohelo was with
Malaihi recalled. By Jury. Re
peated substantially his Conner evi
dence. I did not go to the tele
phone. There was never any occa
sion for ill feeling between Buckle
- Panhanu, recalled. By Jury. I
heard no noise of a struggle. If it
were on one of the wings of tho
building J, would not be able to hear
Wailoa, recalled. I heard no noiso
of any kind until the glass was bro
ken. I heard Malaihi .it the tele
phone, lie was talking through. I
didn't hear the bell.
Mr. Davidson said: Gentlemen of
the jury: This has been an unusu
ally protracted trial. No one was
suspected to an extent that would
require their being brought before
you to testify as to their guilt, but
the law requires and makes it the
duty of the Coroner that when a
sudden death occurs there should
be an inquiry to ascertain if any
foul means have been adopted. Mr.
Buckle was well known, and in per
fect health on Saturday. lie was
well enough to go to a friend's en
tertainment, and went again becauso
he could not rest at home from the
noise of the Chinese New Year.
He was highly esteemed, and it is
not known that he had any enemies.
The fact of finding the body being
reported to the Coroner, he has
summoned you six gentlemen to in
quire into the case. Much time
would have been saved by not mov
ing the body or its surroundings
until a jury hud inspected them.
As nobody is accused of using
violence, it does not become me
to comment upon the testi
mony. I came on behalf of the
family to assist the Coroner in" hav
ing a full and thorough investigation.
It now behooves 3011 to return a
verdict, upon the facts before you,
according to your best reason and
The Coronor then asked the In
terpreter to read the obligation of
jurors, and the law relating to coro
Mr. Dayton said that on Sunday
morning the' considered there was
no occasion to hold an iuquest, but
on Monday he received further in
formation and at once decided to
hold an enquiry.
The jury then retired for supper
at G:45 i m. At 10:30 o'clock,
after three hours deliberation, they
found the unanimous verdict "that
William Buckle came to his death by
a fall from the top of the jail, and
the fall was through some cause un
known to the jury."

A NEV STEAM PLOW.
There is a curious-looking machine
in a progressive state of building on
Commerce street, near Main, on the
east side. Without some 0110 lo ox
plain tho machine a person, even u
farmer would bo puzzled to know
what purpose it is designed for,
whether ditching or what not. It is
mounted on three broad iron wheels,
The fromowork is of heavy wooden
beams and on it is placed a small
stationary cngino of eight-horse
power. 'Behind and attached to this
frame is another running transversely
to it. This is 83 feet long and
mounted on four light wheels. This
frame carries fivo plows attached to
an endless chain, which runs over
tho frame from end to end. Strong
geared machinery drives this endless
chain and hauls the plows through
the groiyid tho distance of 83 feet.
But two plows will bo in the ground
at ti time, and while the cliam is

machine is moved forward Vjy the
sumo engine just one foot. The fur
rows, therefore, are slightly diagonal
and only two rods1 lung. Iu this
manner n strip of land is to be plbwcd
across (ho Held.
Tho machine, or plow, is not yet
completed, Gut it has just reached u
3lago which shows tho principle on
which it is designed to work. It is
being built by tho l'utterson Brothers,
two Scotchmen who have recently
come to Stockton. After looking
over the State to find 11 good place to
engage in farming they decided on
Stockton, and set to work to perfect
a machine that they have been study
ing on for a long time in Illinois nnd
Scotland. They intend, if they suc
ceed in making the plow work, to
use their engine lo perform various
agricultural operations, harrowing
and harvesting and thrashing.
They have an invention of an end
less track Iry which they expect to be
able to run their machine over very
solt land. Their machine excited
much curiosity yesterday. Its trial
will be looked forward lo with in
terest. Stockton Herald.
Salt is an absolute
for stock of all kinds in
Cows at pasture take in
grass eighty and ninety icr
water. When fed on hay iu winter
tliuy got but fourteen per cent.,
eighty-six per cent, of dry, solid
matter in the form of hay or grain
of course contains more salt than ten
to twenty per cent, in the form of
immature grass. And so it is that
in the summer time cows arc more
eager for salt than in tho winter.
Salt is ti great aid to digestion, and
therefore necessarily conducive to
health. Health is indispensable for
a full product of milk and butter.
Salt, then, must lie supplied as so
much necessary food, and not simply
as a luxury which may be supplied
or not. One ounce daily will bo
taken by a cow with bencflt. Regu
larity in its use is quite as indispen
sable as its adequate supply.
