A CHINESE NIHILIST.

retard" Attempt to Itloiv Up 11.
l' l'oor'H IIouho.
About half-past ten o'clock this
morning the residents of the upper
part of Emma street were startled
by a loud report. The cause of this
was the attempt of a Chinaman to
blow up the residence of Mr. Henry
V. Poor, on that street. The Chi
naman, a big stout fellow namtd
dm On, but better known as Jim,
entered the grounds and placed a
quantity of gunpowder enclosed in
a rice sack, on a vine frame near the
front veranda. He pub a match to
it, but, instead of blowing up the
house, the result was that Chu On
was blown about twenty feet away.
The noise of the explosion soon
brought a number of people on tho
spot, among them Police Captain
Hopkins, who lives near by. Chu
On was found lying on the pathway
about twenty feet from where ho
placed the powder, and to all ap
pearances he was a dead man. But
on turning him over it was found
that he was not seriously hurt. His
stomach was rather badly burned
and covered with the marks of pow
der. Ho was taken to the Queen's
Hospital and afterwards removed to
the prison hospital.
Deputy Marshal Creighton and a
Bulletin reporter were quickly at
Mr. Poor's residence and an exam
ination was made. The bag that
had contained the powder was found
partially burned. The damage done
was very slight, in fact, it did not
amount to anything at all, the vine
frame simply being charred to tho
extent of about a couple of inches.
The occupants of ''the house said
that the explosion shook the build
ing considerably and they were very
much alarmed. The hospital was
visited and Chu On told Mr. Creigb-
ton that he had used powder and in
tended to have blown up the house,
that lie had designs ou Mr. Castle's
house, that he did not care to live,
and that they had belter hang him
up. lie looked as if he had been
under the influence of liquor.
Chu On- blamed Messrs. W. It.
Castle and II. F. Poor for being the
cause of what he had done, and this
led our reporter to interview Mr.
Poor. That gentleman, who was
very much surprised at Chu On'a
action, said that the Chinaman leased
a rice plantation at Wnikiki on which
Mr. Castle and himself held a mort
gage. Money was advanced to Chu
On to pay wages to the men working
on this plantation, but instead of
doing so he paid tho money to the
men working on his other plantation
at Moanalua. Finally at Chu On'n
request Messrs. Castle and Poor re
leased him fiom the mortgage, and
to them he expressed himself as
pleased. Nothing more was heard
of him until this morning. Mr.
Poor cannot imagino why lie should
have attempted to do what ho did.

Slatting from the town of lltlo
the toad runs along through amongst
the simple, ul neat, little eoltages
hing on the outskiits and past Hie
W'aiakca llsh ponds which arc fed
by immense springs of water gush
ing up through openings in the
rocks. These ponds aio famous for
line mullet. Just beyond the fish
ponds signs of thrift may be seen in
the shape of small patches of well
cultivated sugar cane owned mostly
by Portuguese and Japanese fami
lies. One mile from town on the
left hnnd side of the road is located
the Waiakea Sugar Mill, while to
the right a splendid view of latest
lava flow may bo bad. This How
came down to within half a mile of
the road before it flopped. Along the
line of the road lliete arc some Hue
specimens of tho brcadfiiiit lice con
stantly in full fruilage, than which
no more handsome tree is to be
found on thee islands. About two
miles from town the road enters the
cane fields of Waiakea plantation,
which gives the traveler a good oppor
tunity of seeing the sugar cane in
vaiious stages of its growth, and in
the months .of November and De
cember when the cane is in Mower a.
more imposing sight is rarely lo be
About three miles fiom Hilo the
new volcano rocd diverges fiom the
old one toward the woods on the left,
ami, after miming through some of
the best land on Waiakea, reaches
Hie forest bell and skills along its
edge for sonic distance, exposing to
view a peifect galaxy of guava,
pandanus or screwpiuc, and the oliiu
or mountain apple trees, together
with here and there a few kukui and
bicadfruit trees, the various shades
of green pioducing a very pleasing
effect upon the eye of the traveler.
But as soon as the forest is fairly
entered the tall trees on both sides
of the road would appear to act sim
ply as a trellis for a profusion of
climbing and creeping vines to
festoon themselves upon, for indeed
each tree reminds one of the sight
often to be seen on the deck of out
going steamers in the haibor of
Honolulu, .-, ladies and gentlemen
so loaded down with vines and
flowers twisted and looped about
them that they are almost beyond
the identification of their most fami
liar friends. These giant trees of
the forest are often almost hidden
from view by the tangled mass of
vines that climb upon them, and the
parasites that grow m the forks and
suitable recesses of the trees com
plete a most unique and interest
ingly pleasing picture. In all the
three or four miles the road leads
through this forest belt, no two
places arc alike in appearance, and
as the toad winds and curves about
to avoid steep grades, new beauties
rise ever before the traveler, till it
would appear to be a panorama of
nature's most profuse decoiation.
Those who, in former times, have
had to travel on the old volcano toad
from Hilo will remember the portion
lying between Hilo ahd the woods.
It consisted of a series of swamps'
places alternating with patches of
pahoehoe rock, frequently giving
the traveler a vivid realization of
the fact that thcte was but one step
between the extreme hardness and
extreme softness of the road, and,
no doubt, has again and again been
the cause of people who are in the
habit of speaking to themselves say
ing man' improper words and even
sentences that have never been re
corded by man. Instead of this
state of things the traveler will now
find a well-graded macadamized
road, in every way suitable, in any
kind of weather, for a carriage to
be driven over it at a twelve mile an
hour gait with perfect comfort to
the occupants pleasure need not
be mentioned, for a ride, even in an
ox cart, through such a strip of
fairy land could not fail to produce
it in the minds of the most dulland
The road, so far as it lias been
completed, is" wide and even and
carriages jnay pass each other at
any point witli comfort and Bafety.
Operations are still going on and al
though only about twelve miles of
road are fit for traffic at present, it
is to be hoped that in the course of
the next year tho whole distance
from Hilo to tiie Volcano will bo
completed. It may appear to some
that the building of this loud is a
waste of the people's money; but it
is not so, for leaving out of con
sideration the comfort and pleasure
of tourists whom we are so con
stantly and persistently inviting to
our shores, the volcano road opens
up n large section many thousands
of acres of tho finest laud in the
kingdom that was formerly locked
up. And if the present mode of
taxation is continued as now prac
tised in Hilo district, the improves
of these lands will, in the course of
a few years, have to pay more taxes
over and above what is now being
paid by the owners of the land, than
will make good the cost of tho vol
cano road and compound interest
added. It is wagon loads and rail
roads that make the section of coun
try through which they lead valuable.
Many small farmers have taken up
parcels of good laud in this coun-
try, and raised produce, but il
usually has cost more lo get it to a
market than it was worth, bimply
because there were no cart roads for
transportation. Let us have roads,

OPINIONS - OF
quitable Life Assurance Society
OF THK UNITKD STATUS
A SIMPLE PROMISE TO PAY.
rFrom the Xr.w Yoiik Timi:, June '22, lS8f.
The Equitable Life Assurance Society has adopted a new form of
policy which, like a bank draft, is a simple promise to pay without condi
tions on the back.
fl'iom the OntCAC.o lxvKSTinvroit.
Always on the alert, and ever anxious to give the public th-j mmt
advantageous contract in life insurance, the Kqnilahlc Life Assurance So
ciety of New York has, in the past, made many advances on old melhoiU
and has been the means to liberalize life assurance in a greater degree
perhaps, than any other organization. It is not at all surprising, there
fore;, that this great company now comes before the people witli a new
contract, the like ot which has not before been known in life insurance.
from the ICr.XTfCKV ItnmsTKit, Richmond, Ivy., June i!S, 18S!).
The Equitable Life Assurance Society has, in the past, done more to
create and maintain confidence in life assurance than any other company.
Consequently its business is larger than that of any of its competitors.
Furthermore, it has now taken a step which practically sweeps every ob
jection of the character referred to out of the way. The result, undoubt
edly, will be that thousand? of men who have heretofore lacked confidence
in life assurance, will examine the' new policy otfered by the Kquitalile,
and assure their lives forthwith.
rFrom the Dostox Post.
This company lias done more than any other to simplify the assurance
contract, ami to maintain public confidcrcc in life assurance.
Froni the I'tciric Uxdkuwiiitiiu, San Francisco, July 1, 1889. J
The Equitable has already established a world-wide reputation for
liberal dealings witli its policy-holders and for its prompt settlement of all
legitimate claims against it, and this new policy cannot fail to enhance its
reputation for enterprise and progressivencss in dealing with the subject
of life assurance.
