A GHASTLY OPIUM SEARCH.
Hy the brigantinc Consuelo from
San Francisco, which arrived at this
port on the 1st inst., there came,
consigned to Mr. Robert More, ma
chinist, a casket containing the re
mains of his mother, who died in
San Francisco about six years ago.
The body was sent here to be buried
in the family lot, Niiuauu Ceme
tery, beside that of the husband of
the deceased. For some reason, at
present unaccountable, suspicion
was entertained in San Francisco,
that the casket contained opium.
Marshal Soper received a letter to
that effect, and was on the lookout
for the article. This morning Mr.
More was summoned to the Oceanic
S. S. Co.'s wharf, and informed that
the casket was suspected of contain
ing opium. The Marshal employed
Mr. Williams, undertaker, to open
the casket, which ho did in presence
of Col. Iaukea, Collector; Mr. Mark
ham, Port Surveyor; Major A.
Rosa, of the Attorney-General's
olllce; Mr. More, and police oflicers.
Within the burial casket there wore
the wooden coflln and leaden casing,
usual in such cases. All were forced
open, and the inner one was found
to contain a corpse, as represented.
Thcro would s'eem to have been un
pardonable blundering somewhere,
in this matter, to have subjected a
respectable man to such a painful
indignity as Mr. More has been
compelled to experience. Oct 3.
One of the saddest accidents ever
recorded in this community occurred
on the Pali road on Saturday, Oct.
3rd. A party of Hawaiian women
held a picuio abovo the Halfway
IIouso, and, after u pleasant time,
started for homo shortly before six
o'clock. Mrs, Sam. Nowlein, her
two young daughters, Annie Akona
and a Portuguese boy entered a
break, the first-named driving. The
hoi so was "Jiiiimic," once noted ns
a lacer, and he became unmanage
able at the start. Mary Akona,
driving up in a buggy, said sho
could manage the horse, and accord
ingly got into the break and took
the Hues, Annie and the two girls
getting out. Scarcely bad Mary
started the horse than the brute
took the bit in his teeth and started
down the road atatcaiing gallop.
Before a great distance was traversed
at that furious pace, the bieak
stiuck one of the large water pipes
so long cumbering the side of the
road. Mary Akona was thrown out
at the spot, the boy some distance
further on, and, finally, Mrs. Now
lcin. The latter was stunned by the
shock, and revived to find herself
lying across a water pipe,- her ankle
and back sprained. With difficulty
she crawled up the road, and first
saw the boy extricating himself from
the ditch, and then Mary Akona
stretched out between two water
pipes. The young woman was un
conscious ami had a bad cut over
the eye. A white man bound or
Koolau 'and others at this juncture
happened along, word was despatch
ed to town for a doctor, and a wagon
was obtained, in which Mrs. Nowlein
and Mary Akona were taken to the
hitter's residence on the Palama
road, opposite the King's stables.
Before reaching there, Mary was
dead. Slie showed signs of life
when picked up, but expired before
going many rods in the carriage.
Her chest was found to be stove in
and the ribs broken, one of her legs
was also broken and there was a
large wound on the left arm. The
deceased was a half-Chinese,
daughter of Akona, formerly keeper
of the International Hotel. Her
funeial took place yesterday after
noon, and was largely attended, the
Rev. II. II. Parker conducting the
services. Mrs. Nowlein was re
moved to her own house, and is re
covering from her injuries. She re
members nothing that occurred be
tween the horse running off and her
revival to consciousness. The horse
was standing near her with the dam
aged vehicle when she opened her
eyes, so that he must have run but" a
short distance and then, turned back.
Messrs. E. P. Adams & Co. had
sundry lands to sell at auction, under
foreclosure of mortgage, this noon.
In one or two cases the mortgages
were satisfied beforehand. A half
interest in 30 acres of land at Wai
kiki was put up, and bought by Mr.
Geo. C. Beckley for S1075. An,
acre and a half at Kalihi was knocked'
down tp Cum On for 8310. This
amount covering the mortgages on
a whole series of four'lots, the other
three were withdrawn. There was
an amusing incident connected with
tills sale.. The purchaser is a plan
tation manager for Sin Cliong Co.,
and this morning he asked the head
of the iirm to go to the sale and bid
in that lot -for him. Sin Cliong pro
mised to comply with the request,
and started the bidding at $150.
Somebody in. the margin of the
crowd bid against him, and a spirited
competition ensued. When, at
length, Sin Cliong gave up the con
test and the lot was knocked down
at 8310, bis amazement may be
imagined when the '"lucky man"
came forward and. revealed himself
ns Cum On. The foolish fellow bad
been all the time bidding against
Ills employer, who was faithfully re
deeming his promise to buy the lot
for him. Oct. 5.
EXCHANCE OF COURTESIES.
Yesterday morning His Majesty
the King entertained Captain Aling
ton and oflicers of the British man-
of-war Satellite at breakfast. Gov
ernor Dominis, lion. A. S. Cleghorn
and Cols. Judd and Purvis were
present. Attended by tliu party
just named, the King at noon visited
the siiip. The yards were manned
in his honor at arrival and depar
ture. A hundred-pound shell was
fired from one of the (5-inch breech
loading guns, to show the working,
of the piece to His Majesty.
In the evening a complimentary
concert was given the captain and
oflicers of the ship at the' Hawaiian
Hotel. Building and grounds were
finely illuminated with colored lan
terns and torches. There was a
large attendance, including Gover
nor Dominis, the American Minister
and the British Commissioner, with
Mrs. Merrill and Mrs. Wodehousc ;
the French Commissioner and ladies,
and the Portuguese Commissioner.
THE SUGAR MACHINERY BOOM.
Work had to be carried on all
last night at the Ironworks, to have
n large quantity of machinery com
pleted and packed in time for ship
ment by the steamer Planter. A
maceration mill goes to Ilanamaulu,
Kauai, The balance- of an order
for a similar mill is being despatched
to the Union Mill, Hawaii. Thcro
is a new roller for Koloa, and there
are rollers for Judge Hart, Kohala,
Hawaii. Orders for repair works
aro greater at the works than over
befoie. In consequence of bucIi a
rush, that has continued since the
first maceration mill was made
several months ago, the men are
working oveitime every night. Ke
poits from some mills that have
lnlcly adopted maceration, indicate
that the process is exceeding the
most sanguine expectations of its
value. A gain of over twenty-five
percent of juice is not too lurgo an
estimate of the results obtained
where the new method has received
a fair trial. A much higher figure
is mentioned in some cases, but,
until the exact returns are ready
for publication, it is premature to
calculate the saving effected. TOc.
AN ICE QUESTION.
A shareholder of the Ico and
Refrigerating Company, being asked
if it was true' the pi ico of ico had
been raised since amalgamation, re
plied that lie thought it would not
be raised in Honolulu until n meet
ing of the company was held. The
price had been increased on the
other islands, and would have to be
here, as neither of the two former
companies had been able to make
anything out of the old rates.
Drivers, owing to their long and un
seasonable hours, had to be paid
high wages or they would not stay.
The machinery of the Artesian
works arc be'iDg transferred to the new
company's premises, and, while the
plant is being overhauled, ice will
be made at the Wilder Works.
Tnunsiuv, Oct. 1st.
Massive blinds and window
casings for the tower of Knwaiahao

total debit of G8, 32 1.20, leaving a
balance to next account of 10,210.
38. Elegant new sheds have been
erected by the Union Feed Company
in rear of their warehouses. The
whitewash brush has been liberally
plied in the same quarter, making
the premises look clean and radiant.
There is illimitable scope throughout
the city for following this good ex
ample. Tins morning Messrs. E. P. Adams
& Co. sold the Kilauca Sugar Co.'s
railway plant at auction. It fell to
the Western and Hawaiian Invest
ment Company for 3,380. The
purchasers, it is understood, imme
diately disposed of the property to
the original owners and mortgagors,
for the same amount.
Mnssns. Castle & Cooke are
obliged to dump a consignment of
about seventy-five barrels of salmon
in the bay. Owing to an over
stocked market, the fish spoiled be
fore it could be sold. There is a
good deal of complaint among
steady-going merchants here regard
ing San Francisco merchants making
Honolulu a slaughter market for
surplus and sometimes stale goods.
Mu. William Oliphnnt, proprietor
of the Hotel street Meat Market,
died rather suddenly yesterday after
noon, and was buried this afternoon.
His death was caused by the rupture
of a blood vessel, produced by a
heavy lift. Deceased was a native
of Dairy, Ayrshire, Scotland, and
left Honolulu after a previous resi
dence, going to the Colonies for a
short time. He leaves a widow,
having been married about a year.

Last evening the Queen's Own
paraded under command of Capt.
O'Connor. The exercises wore,
firing by file, kneeling and by com
pany. Such assiduous attention as
the captain devotes to his yoitng
soldiers cannot fail to produce a
high order of efficiency.
Makings from the British man-of-war
Satellite arc eagerly inspecting
local industries. Some of them
have been asking direction to a
sugar plantation. A small party of
them was in McLain's forge, oppo

insr, taking turns at the bellows.
Tin: sociable at Rev. E. C. Oggcl's
residence last evening was a very en
joyable occasion. The worthy par
son and his estimable lady did the
honors in a manner that made every
one in the company feel quite at
home. A variety of literary and
musical exercises formed part of the
Ciias. B. Patterson, a house
painter, has a forcible letter in the
Bulletin of to-day, showing that
some white builders and property
owners, who arc dependent upon
civilized institutions for their exis
tence in this country, give the pre
ference to Chinese workmen, nil on
account of cheapness, and are thus
helping in the extirpation of the
white race from the islands.
At about six o'clock yesterday
evening, some loud talking in the
yard adjoining the Government
building attracted all passers who
chanced to be within hearing. It
appears that a native employee in
the Survey Department was in the
building after working hours, and
another Government employee, think
ing he was there for no good pur
pose, ordered him to come out;
hence the squabble. Each threat
ened to thrash the other and that's
all it amounted to.

on the upper balcony of the store,

A i.Aitoi: number of people went
