A STOLEN WATCH RESTORED.
The police at Tahiti seem to be
active and expert at discovering and
recovering stolen propeity, as will
appear from the following: Capt.
John Ross, when at Tahiti recently,
in the bark Kalakaua, lost a valua
ble gold watch, which was stolen
from his clothing. The captain
gave infoimaticn to tho Chief of
Police, and received the assurance
that the property would be restored,
or its value given in its stead. By
II. B. M. S. Hyacinth Capt. Rots
received a letter from the Hawaiian
Consul, M. Cognet, at Tahiti, in
forming that his watch had been
found, and was sent to him by the
same vessel, through the Minister of
Foreign affairs. Capt. Ross now
has the watch in his possession. It
was fortunate for him that his watch
was not stolen in Honolulu, or the
chances aie he would never have
seen it again. Our police are not
so expert at catching thieves and
recovering stolen propeitj'.

CARRYING DEADLY WEAPONS.
Laa, tho native who was arrested
on tho 10th at the Board of Health
ofllcc by Ofllccr Kingsley with a
loaded pistol in his hand was in the
Police Court this morning for trial.
Ho was charged with carrying a
deadly weapon, to wit: a pistol.
He pleaded not suilty. Tho first
witness was Kingsley who stated
tho facts of tho case. Laa cross
examined the witness at length and
one question a9kcd was, "Did the
Holy Spirit work on you for good or
The defendant made a long state
ment referring to the law relating to
friends visiting the leper settlement.
He said he cariied a pistol in his
pocket, but did not take it out and
snore before God that he intended
no harm. He simply went to tho
President of the Board to get a per
mit to visit his wife, a leper at Mo
lokai. If that failed he intended to
have di uuk awa or binned himself
and got scales and sores as others
had done and so try to pass as a
His Honor said he entirely disap
proved of the carrying of lire-arms
and sentenced the defendant to pay
a line of $30 with costs, or in de
fault to be imprisoned at hard labor
for two months.
Another charge was then entered
against Laa, that of intending vio
lence against tho person of N. B.
Emerson, M. D. The following de
claration was sworn to by Dr. Emer
son: To David Dayton, Esq., Police Ma
gistrate. Sir: I, N. B. Emerson, M. D.,
of Honolulu, have reason to believe
and fear that a native Hawaiian
named Laa (k) intends to commit
violence upon my person, to wit, to
shoot mo, as on the 10th day of De
cember, 1888, ho entered my office
in Honolulu with a loaded pistol and
holding it in his hand demanded
from me a permit for him to go to
Molokai and live with his wife, a
leper. Wherefore 1 ask that said
Laa may be ordered to give bonds
with sufficient surety that he will
commit no offense against my per
son. N. B. Emerson.
This case was continued for hear
ing. HONOLULU BY MOONLIGHT.

Keeping gunrd o'er the land of his

The loveliest isle of this earth !

As tho blanches stlucd in tho breeze.
