A MURDER STORY.
Some days ago a clipping from an
American paper, containing the fol
lowing, was handed to a Bum.ktin
"Nfw Yuuk, May 11th. A Tri
bune's Bridgeport, Conn., despatch,
contains the death-bed confession of
Baldwin Janscr, a Danish sailor,
who died at Honolulu in January.
This confession explains tho murder
of Captain Colvocoicscs, of the
United Slates -Navy, who was killed
in 1872 iu Bridgepoit. His satchel,
containing valuable bonds, was miss
ing, and a seal ring from his finger
was gone. lie hud over 825,000
insurance on his life, and the theory
was advanced by interested insur
ance companies that he had commit-
led suicide. The confession of
Jniiscr was conoborated Fiiday by
the icceipt of tho stolen ring."
Diligent enquiries in every quaitcr
likely to contain tho infoimation,
have failed to icvcal any account of
tho death at Honolulu, at the time
mentioned or any other time, of
tho Danish sailor named above. No
Ualdwin Janscr died in the hospital.
Mr. Hendry, the Danish Consul,
never heard of the man. Captain
Brown, agent of the Board of
Health, has no record of a Dane
dying heic since 1880, and one who
died in that year was not a sailor.
Still, the above slory appeals to
have all llio elements- of authen
ticity. It is possible the muidcrcr
died at sea near Honolulu. Hut if
he died on shore here, who knows
anything about it, and lo whom was
the confession made?
halo not no Tin: sun.
On Wednesday, July 2i)th, about
1.U0 r. 3i., there appeared a large
and complete halo round the sun.
The sky was full of a mist, but no
rain was actually falling anywhere
in sight. Small halos round the
sun may often be observed by means
of a smoked glass, but so largo and
complete a solar halo as that noticed
(about 11 in diameter) or one
which is visible to the naked eye
and lasts for some time, is rarely
scon in the tropics. Our informant
was on the Waianao road, about
four initos noith of Honolulu, when
he and other travelers stopped to
look at the above interesting pheno
menon. It was probably caused by
the lefraclion of the sun's rays from
myriads of ice-crystals floating in
the air, not from drops of water as
in the case of rainbows, mere
were heavy thunder-storms next
mutuok si:en orr waiai.la.
A brilliant meteor was seen in the
noithcrn sky, off Waialua on this
island, about 7.30 p. m. on Thurs
day last (July flOth). It suddenly
appeared in tho sky, at a point
about fifteen degrees from the Polar
Star, on the side opposite to that on
which the "pointers" of the Great
Bear lie, and a little above the con
tinuation of an imaginary line drawn
from them through the Polar Star.
From this spot it ran downwards in
an almost perpendicular course till
within a few degrees of the horizon,
when it disappeared. Its light, un
dimmed from first to last, was about
eight limes as bright as that shed
by either of the two planets nightly
seen on our western horizon, and no
detonation or sound of any kind
accompanied cither its appearance
or its disappearance. It looked like
a globe of lire of a bluish-gieen
color, and ended its course, not by
bursting into fragments, but as if
A PEEP INSIDE CHINATOWN.
Yesterday forenoon, in the com
pany of Deputy Marshal Dayton
and Ollicers l'ehlbehr anil Marcos,
our reporter went on a visit of in
spection to the lately raided gam
bling premises in Chinatown. Going
along Meek street the party paused
occasionally to look and listen.
Upon either hand could be seen, in
back shops, groups of Chinese un
doubtedly engaged in gaming, while
around and overhead was heard the
click of dominoes. As the law
stands, gambling may go on right
under the eyes of the police, but if
money is kept out of view no
conviction can be obtained. Going
through a narrow alleyway from
Hotel street, a quadrangular court
is entered. Here is a scene, of
which even the dingiest and ugliest
exterior shell of Chinatown affords
no index. The center of the court
bears resemblance to a deserted gipsy
encampment, ouy that the cooking
utensils arc left behind. Open fire
places, containing only black and
cold embers, are surrounded by pots
hung on crossed sticks, with a few
iron and tin vessels lying about.
Narrow stairs one lliglit at each
angle lead up to a verandah run
ning round three sides of the square.
Groups of Chinese lounged about
the doorways on the ground fioor
and along the upper verandah, ex
cept that side of it off which the
raided gaming room opened. A
native woman and young girl were
listlessly lolling at the foot of one
of the stairways. The Celestials
looked with as little concern as pos
sible upon the intruding ollicers of
the law. Upon the side of the
square next Hotel street rose an
indescribably conglomerate fabric.
There was a substructure consisting
of a crazy and dilapidated shed, its
wall made of slats an inch or so
apart. It looked as if originally
built for a henhouse, Perched upon
the sloping roof of this shaky hovel,
braced and levelled up with an in
genious arrangement of scantling,
was an entirely distinct and newer,
but scarcely more substantial or
elegant-looking house. Passing up
stairs the now desolate gaming apau
nienlH are entered. Two small,
roughly-walled rooms, with n table
in each, constitute the suite. The
game is conducted by means of
tickets, that may be sold all over
town, but the manipulation of them
is done entirely within the inner of
these two rooms. Tho tickets aio
brought lo the clerks at the outside
table, who check them and pass
them through a small slit, whittled
out in the crack of tho wall, lo tho
managers inside. When a ticket
takes a prize, or otherwise, the fact
is posted on (he wall of the outer
room, where investors in them can
read their 'Muck" at any time. A
window opens out from tho inner
room to a narrow space between that
and the next rookery, and a person
can easily obtain hand and foot
holds to let himself down to the
ground, in cate of the den being
surprised. Once an olllcer caught a
fellow by the heels, in the act of
departing by this very window. A
look out of the rickety opening re
vealed the interior of n bakery on
Hotel slicel, where batters and
batches weie being industriously
compounded in casks and tubs. The
back door of the inner room was
lilted with a heavy bar, effectually
preventing forcible entry 1v any
means short of battering the door to
pieces. This is one of the notorious
gaming rcsoits of the Chinese
quarter. The game pounced upon
yesterday is said to be a thorough
swindle, designed by rascally Chi
nese to rob their more simple coun
trymen without a semblance of fair

In the oilicial report of the
logical survey of AVisconsin,
curious statistics are given as to tho
amount of water taken from the
earth by trees. It is stated that the
average exhalation from soft, thin
leaved plants in clear weather
amounts to about one and a quaitcr
ounces, troy, per day or twelve
hours for every square foot of sur
face. Hence, a moderate-sized elm
raises and throws oif seven and
three-quarters tons of water per
China, with its enormous popula
tion and its sewage-laden rivers, at
the mouths of which large numbers
of the poorer classes live in boats,
would seem to be a country particu
larly exposed lo the visitations of
cholera. The caiibc of the empire's
exemption from this post is said by
Mr. Mattieu Williams to be the tea
drinking habits of the people, which
lead them lo boil all their water,
and take it hot before it has time to
cool and receive any fresh supplies
of disease germs.
A patent has been taken out in
France by M. Tichenor for a pio
cess of butter making by electricity.
It is stated that the milk being
placed in a vessel of special form, a
pair of electrodes is introduced and
connected to a dynamo capable of
yielding a current of forty olts,
when in from three to live minutes
the butter accumulates at one end
of the poles in the form of little
balls. The claims include the re
moval of rancidity from butter and
the manufacture of cheese by the
help of the current.
The way to get the better of tho
bilious system without blue pills or
quinine is to take the juice of one,
or two, or three lemons, as appetite
craves, in as much water as mai;es
it pleasant to drink without sugar,
before troinjr to bed. In tho morn
ing, on rising, at least half an hour
before breakfast, take the juice of
one lemon in a goblet of water.
This will clear tho system of humor
and bile with elllcicney, without any
of the weakening effect of calomel.
People should not irritate the sto
mach by eating lemons clear; the
powerful acid of tho juice, which is
always most corrosive, invariably
produces inllamniation after a while,
but properly diluted, so that it does
not burn or draw tho throat, it does
its medical work without harm, and
when tho stomach is clear of food,
has abundant opportunity to work
over tho system thoroughly.
Speculation, a valuable horse be
longing to Clans Sprcckels, and a
half-brother of the great Dexter,
died lately at tho Aptos ranch. The
horse was valued at 30,000.
