Exposure of a Mission Collector From
tho Far East.
About tho first of tho year a man
calling himself Constnutino and n
missionary from Turkoy was in Hono
lulu. Ho had letters of recomtnon
dation from United States and Euro
pean consuls all over Asia, and ob
tained ouo irom a ory prominent
Honolulu merchant, who is connect
ed with several missionary families.
I Ida succeeded lu collecting quite a
I largo sum of money iu Honolulu.
I The gentleman who gave tho loiter
, headed the list with $10; other mom
i bors of his firm alo contributed the
I same amount. Having scoured the
names of such gentlemen, it was no
' hard mat tor for Constantino to go
around and secure money from al
i most anyone. Constantino was al
lowed to take part in the services of
I St. Audrow's Cathedral on Sunday.
He vas tall and angular, with
I swarthy features and bushy beard.
People turned to look at tlie strango
figuro as he passed along tho streot,
with long clothes hanging loosely on
his raw-boned frame. Ouo day a
Bulletin reprocontativo showed him,
at his request, the plaeo to take a
car to go to the United Slates Lega
tion, but, although a car wan in
sight, Constantiue started off walk
1 ing. It would appear by tho follow
ing, from a lato issue of the San
Francisco Chronicle, that tho aw
fully( solemn-looking creature is an
' unmitigated fraud and impostor:
For soveial weeks past au Arinon
, iau or Persian uivinir tho name of
John Couslaulino has been visiting
the church peoplo of Swi Frauoiseo
and Oakland trying to collect money '
for tho establishment of a Christian
church, orphango and college in h's
native land. Lot tors in his posses
sion show that ho has been iu Ohiun,
Japan and the Hawaiian Islands
upon tho same mission. Foou aftor
reaching this const ho began castiug
about lor money, and uot a few
Christians had their sympathies en
listed in tho project of spreading
gojpol truths among tho benighted
people of Turkey who lito near tho
Persian boundary. Among these
were Rov. Mr. Merrill and Rv. Mr.
Williams of Oaklaud, who desired
tho Ministerial Union to introduce
Constantino with tho view of making
opportunities for him to collect
funds. Knowing that Rev. J.E.Scott
of 727 Geary street and his wife
had livod in the section of tho East
from which Constantino bailed, they
sent him to see Mr. and Mrs. Scott.
Both speak the Persian and Armen
ian languages and are familiar with
Turkey. Mr. Scott was a missionary
there and Mrs. Scott is tho daughter
of a missionary. She spent about
sixteen years of her early life with
her father iu the Orient.
Mr. and Mrs. Scott do Dot hesitate
to pronounce Constantino a fraud.
"When ho camo to u," said Mrs.
Scott, "wo talked to him iu his own
language, and ho made so many con
tradictions that wo aro satisfied ho
is a fraud. His name, iu tho first
i place, is not Constantino but Thim
mou Tamus. Ho claimed to have '
beou stmt to collect money by the
Christian missionaries, wkon it is a
fact that tho missionaries never send
out natives to collect money because
too many impostors have collected
money in tho uamo of the church. I
recognized tho man's language as
that of a Nestoriau and not of an ,
i Armenian and he confessed that he
1 was of that people. Ho claimed to
I haro graduated in 1881 fiom tho
I college of which my father was tho
president, and tnat lus diploma was
sigiihd by my father, tho Rev. Mr.
Cochrane, and my brother, who was
his teacher. Now, as a fact, my fathor
died in 1871 aud my brother was a
contractor iu Perin, and novor i
taught in the collego. I accused i
him of telling mo falsehoods aud I
denounced him to his face as au im
postor, 1 give there facts so that ,
tho Christians of this locality may i
not bo imposed upon by tho follow.
It has becomn almost a national
custom among tho lower ola38 of his ,
raco to go over tho world begging
in tho uamo of tho church. Most ,
of tho money they convert to their
owu n-e, aud some of it goos to
ward the support of thoir own reli-'

Mr. John A. Scott, MuiiMgur of the Hilo Sugar Company, gives the follow
ing wonderful record of tho working of thu NATIONAL CANE SHRED
DER, which was cicclcd by their works ut the commencement of tho crop
"During the pnst week tho Hilo tiugm Company's mill exceeded any of
its former records by closing the 125 hours grinding with an output of 300
tons. This is fully 10 percent more than the best work of former years.
"Tho three roller mill being 20 In. by 51 iu. mid tho two roller mill 30 In.
by CO in. 'the first mill doing this amount of work in nn efficient manner
and with great ease, compared with work on wholo cane, owing to thorough
preparation of tho enne by tho National Ctuio Shredder, iccently erected by
" And by its use the extraction has been increased from 3 percent to C por
cent on all kinds of cane, and iu coino cui-os 80 percent has been reached ;
tho nverago being 75 to 78 percent, according to quality.
"I continue to find the mega from shredded cano better fuel than from
"Ihe shredder has been working day and night for seven months and has
given mo entire hatisfuctiou, having shredded during that timo about sovonty
thousand tons of cano, and u large part of it being hard rutoons.
"Tho shredder and engine require ery little care or attention."
