Ax Old RcsmnxT Ci.ubhed, Gagged
Capt. Thos. II. Norton, an old
resident of seventeen years, was
knocked down and robbed of $.15
last night, in one of the most fre
quented thoroughfares of Honolulu,
at an hour when the streets are
usually alive with people. The cap
tain, who lives on Nuuanti street,
near the Kapena premises and nearly
opposite the Lyceum, was, it ap
pears, going home about 0:30
o'clock, when he was set upon by
two men and felled to the earth with
a blow from a weapon that he takes
to have been a sandbag. One of
the miscreants was a colored man
and the other a foreigner. To pre
vent the captain from giving an
alarm, one of them put his hand
over his mouth. So severe was the
blow that Capt. Norton lay in an
unconscious state till about ten
o'clock. Ho had been sick for
some time past, and cannot recollect
much about the occurrence, as the
attack upon him was made so sud
denly. His pockets wcio rilled, the
above sum being taken, which com
prised four $10 bills, one 65 gold
piece, that was marked with a cross
over tho face side, and $5 in silver.
LAST NIGHT'S PERFORMANCE.
The Royal Australian Circus held
its own last night as tho leading at
traction. There was a very fair
audience, including a largo propor
tion of the more prominent figures
in political, diplomatic social, profes
sional, and business circles. The
Royal box was occupied by Prin
cess Liliuokalani, Princess Poomai
kelani (Governess of Hawaii), Gov
ernors Dominis of Oahu, and Kanoa of
Kauai, Mrs. J. M. Kapena and Mrs.
Junius Kaae. Tho vaulting that
opens tho programme now running
has probaly never been excelled.
All the half-dozen performers turn a
somersault over six horses, two or
three of them go Hying over eight,
and Albert King turns a double one
over six, In the two horse carrying
act an exhibition of horsemanship
and acrobatics combined is given
which, it is safe to say, cannot be
excelled in any other company in
the woild. Piiuco Btmgaroo's bal
ancing of a massive grated screen,
holding it on his upturned 9oles while
his son Itiche performs a vaiiety of
daring acrobatic feats on the summit,
is a performance of sustained
strength and skill that is simply
astounding, and has on each occa
sion produced frantic applause. Jack
Cousens' bareback riding forms the
most dashing equestrianism that has
over been seen hero, or perhaps any
where else. "I.a Pcrchc Equipose,"
in which King performs feats on a
twenty-foot pole held up by Culvert,
standing on his head on the summit,
and finally gliding down head fore
most like a rocket slick, is without
doubt one of the very most startling
feats of tho kind ever executed.
Mr. Robert Taylor gave a very en
tertaining play in balancing dishes
on rods, showing the skill of a
specialist. Itiche is as pliable a
cortortionist as any ' that can ever,
liavo appeared in the role of a
"boneless boy," a common charac
ter in circuses. His principal feat
is to stand upon two chairs, a foot
apart, and bending backward lift a
coin from the ground with his mouth,
afterward icturning it by the same
process. A comical feat by the
same performer is to rest his head
on the ground and run all round it
without turning his head. In the
closing act last night "The Marble
Lover" a great deal of ludicrous
byploy was thrown in, and the audi
ence rose with their sides shaking.
The band plays particularly well,
having special music for every act.

Ashford and Ashford and L. A.
Thurston for the defendants. The
Court heard the argument of counsel
on a motion filed by defendants to
dissolve the temporary injunction
issued in the case, and denied the

several postponements, and argued
1)3' counsel, after which it was sub
mitted. This is a caso in equity to
set aside a deed of conveyance from
one Ainu, now deceased, well-known
as an extensive rico planter in Ewa,
on this island, to one Lau Ung, the
defendant in this case, who is a
brother of baid Aiau. The complaint
nllegcs that the deed is fraudulent
and void on the ground that said
defendant knew of the insolvency of
said Aiau at the time of its execu
tion. On the other hand the defen

his brother. His Honor took time
to consider the merits of tho ease.

"THE PEACH KINC OF AMERICA."
John II. Parnell, brother of the
Irish agitator, is a pcacli grower in
Georgia. His great peach forest is
described as containing acres and
acres of ground, stretching indeed
into miles, covered with every
variety of tree. The trees, which
number 150,000, are planted twelve
feet apart, and aro kept trimmed to
the ground, so that a person stand
ing can pick the rosy fruit from its
fastness. When the first blush
conies upon the cheek of the dainty
beauties 100 men, women and chil
dren are set to work, each armed
with a flat basket, returning to the
rendezvous when the bottom is
covered. Thus they keep on day
after day until the season is over.
The story of Mr. Parncll's venture
is briefly this : He invested S 12,000
in his plantation. He lias spent
over $8,000 since in trees, seeds,
and labor. Upon this investment
he makes from $8,000 to $10,000 a
year, and would not sell his peach
forest for less than SG00,000. Great
as Charles Stewart Parnell is as the
uncrowned King of Ireland, greater
is John II. Parnell, the peach King
JOHN C. HEENAN ON THE USE OF
Interested for forty years in
physical training, I have been ac
quainted with all classes of muscle
men. I have known the pugilists,
oarsmen, pedestrians and billiard
ists, and would say in passing that
I have found many of them inter
esting persons. With rare excep
tions they had been devotees of
tobacco. Entering the lists it was
hard, with their social environment,
to refuse the weed, but they were
all compelled to abandon il. During
the time John C. Ileenan uas in
training for one of his historic lights
I had a long conversation with him
and his famous trainer about to
bacco. While at Bonicia, as some
of his fellow-workmen there have
since told me, John Was a devotee
of the pipe. In my' first conversa
tion with him we had been talking
over some of his California experi
ences, particularly the discovery of
that wonderful left fist, when one of
his cronies, with cigar in hand,
came in crying out: "I've got a
good one for you, Jack; none of
your two for a cent. I gave a
quarter for it, or I'm an Injun."
" Hank, you know I can't touch
that thing now. A fellow can't
smoke while he is training."
" What's the matter, old f el? You
never say die in Benicia."
"Sec here, Hank," said Ileenan,
" I've got to get this muscle as hard
as a brick" (folding his left arm
and feeling of the biceps), "and
tobacco won't work. Charlie
would kill me if 1 were to
smoke that cigar. He's just made
up his mind that I shall win,
and he won't let me look at a cigar.
He won't even let the boys smoke
in iny room."
The trainers of prize-fighters,
pedestrians, oarsmen and billiard
champions cherish no moral convic
tions about tobacco, but they all
have one fixed and inflexible rule in
regard to its use by their candidates.
And that rule is absolute abstinence.

HE MICHT HAVE STOLEN $100,000.
After a brief pause, the banker
who had told no story said: " I can
tell you a true story of a young
broker's clerk who, from deliberate
honesty, threw away an opportunity
to steal 100,000, when ho knew
that he would never be detected.
When George I. Sency was specu
lating heavily in railroad securities,
he had a large amount of bonds
hypothecated with a first-class Wall
street firm. The bonds bore interest-paying
coupons, and under the
terms of the hypothecation Mr.
Seney's clerk was to have access to
them every six months for the pur
pose of clipping the coupons. J ho
cleric was known to tho broker's
firm. Ono day when he dropped in
to cut off some coupons the hypo
thecated securities were handed to
him, and lie was left in one com
partment of the olllces. The firm,
of course, retained in its possession
a list of all the hypothecated secu
rities returned bv tho cleik. On
this particular occasion tho clerk
found infolded in Mr. Seney's
packages other good negotiable bonds
of the value of 8100,000. They
had evidently got mixed up with
Mr. Seney's securities through one
of those unexplainable mistakes that
happen very rarely in brokers'
" Tho clerk cut off the coupons
that he had come after and restored
the package of securities to a repre
sentative of the firm. The extra
SI 00,000 of bond shad been slipped
into the clerk's coat pocket. Mr.
Seney's securities were compared
ono by ono with tho check
found to be all right.
" 'Is everything there?
" 'Oh, yc3,' said tho broker, as
he prepared to put away the box.
1 Everything is as straight as a
" 'You are sure that thorn were
no other bonds in that box?'
" 'Perfectly,' answered the broker
with a confident air. 'We never get
things mixed here.'
" 'Well, how about this $100,000
of bonds?" asked the clerk, draw
ing the extra securities from his
pocket. The broker recognized
them instantly, and mentioned the
name of the person to whom they
belonged. His astonishment know
no bonds when the clerk told him
where the bonds had been found.
The broker said that he would have
sworn in court that those identical
bonds were in a certain place in his
private safe. Tho cleric was asked
to accept $100 as a souvenir of the
occasion, but he declined."
"That fellow will get away with
a million yet," said the brisk, natty
banker, as he put on his hat and
