THE CUSTOMS SCANDAL.
In its report of tho exposure of a
smuggling rilig with headquarters
in the Custom House, tho Adver
tiser gives tho following remark
Hoshinn has had ample oppor
tunity to feather his nest sinco ho
has been in tho appraiser's ollico.
Frequently cases havo been ordered
to thru department, and when Mr.
Eishel iias been othorwiso engaged
tho examinations of tho contents
havo fallon on iloshhm. The sup
position is that ho opened just
such caf.es as ho know lontained
opium and then put tho ap
praiser's stamp on the outside and
tmncil them over to tho carter for
del.wry at the rendezvous.
I'.fr. Fishol is appraiser in tho
Custom Ilonso, that ollico having
boon created by tho Provisional
Government for tho protection of
tho revenue. Prior to tho
creation and tilling of the
oflice, tho appraising of im
ports was dono by tho Collector
General or his Deputy, exports in
special lines of merchandise
sometimes being called iu. It was
promised by the Minister of
Finance, when asking the Coun
cils to create the now ollico, that
rovenuo would bo saved more than
enough to pay for it. This pro
mise has in all probability been
realized. Yet hero is a nest of
corruption and smuggling, both of
legitimate and illegitimate goods,
discovered right uuder tho nose of
tho now ofiicial. It should havo
boon expdetod that an oflicer hav
ing oxolusivo supervision of tho
appraisement of merchandise
r shpuld bo able to prevent system
atic fraud nt leabt, whon the ofii
cials who formerly attended to
that particular duty, although thoy
' had a variety of other duties to
perforin, never had, anything quite
so scandalous to account for. Re
ferring to tho information quoted
from tho Advertiser, tho question
natuially ocours as to how it hap
pened that.Hoshina always had
the good fortune, in his ne
farious tloiugs, to have those
cases to open anil mark which
contained opium. Tho statement
would indicato oithor tho apprais

It. inn I.
There was trouble at tho polico
station this morning when Deputy
Marshal Hitchcock overhauled
everybody concerned in yester
day's arrests and search at tho
Custom House and endeavored to
I find out how tho Bulletin got its
information ycslorday afternoon.
Strict orders woro given that no
ono connected with the caso should
ovon open his mouth to a reporter
and especially tho Bulletin man,
anddiro penalties were threatened
if any more information was given
out. Consequently nobody had
any use for reporters around
headquarters today. But that
makes no difference, as it is well
known that no secrets can bo kept
After snondiii" all vostordav
afternoon in investigating tho case,
Bomo of tho principal witnesses
accompanied by Chester Doyle as j
interpreter loft for Kauai on tho '
Jlikahala, but their names do j
not appear on tho passenger list. '
Marshal Brown is already on
that islandongaged in investigating i
tho business at that end of tho
line, and when lie receives tho ,
report of yesterday's proceedings
something may drop on tho Gar
It is nearly six weoki ago since
tho polico commenced to work on
these cases and thoy have never let
up. Investigations have taken
place on Mtuu and aro now going
on on Kauai with tho object of
finding out who was purchasing
the opium obtained by Iloshina
and distributed by his confedor
ates, and there is no doubt
that the polico havo sufficient in
formation to implicate several
parties both horo and on Kauai.
The statement is also made that
Hoshinn, Itawi and Masui aro not
tho principals, although thoy will
be made to suffer unless thoy givo
tho whole business away. It is
tliopnncipals in tho deal that tho
polico aro now after, both hero
and on Kauai, and othor arrests
may take place at any timo.
On the othor hand tho claim is
made that Hoshina is tho victim
of a conspiracy put up to got him
out of tho Custom House, his
preseuco'thoro having interfered
with tho oporntions of Japanese
smugglers. Under the instruc
tions of counsel, Messrs. Robert
sou and Davis, ho is keeping a
closo mouth until his trial which
is set for Friday.
The charge against Hoshina has
been raiseel to that of selling
opium, while Iwata is charged
only with having tho drug iu pos
session. Tho Maternity Homo and tho
Young Hawaiian's Instituto will
onch receive S2f)0.7C as tho pro
ceeds of tho recent bonefit at the
oirens. Tho total receipts woro

This morning tho Supremo

of Chief Justico Judd, Associate
Justico Frear and Attorney at
Law Cecil Brown began hearing
argument on defendant's motion
for re hearing of tho McGrow lifo
Pacts bout a Watcli
(1'iuin N. Y. Coininerelnl Adv )
"A watch balanco gives fivo
vibrations ovory second, 300 every
minuto, 18,000 every hour, 432,000
ovory day, 157,080,000 ovory year.
At each vibration it rotates about
1 times, which makes 197,100,000
revolutions every year. In order
that wo may bettor understand tho
stupendous amount of labor por
formed by theso tiny works, let
us make a pertinent comparison.
Tako for illustration a locomotive
with six foot driving wheels. Let
its wJieols bo run until thoy have
givon tho samo number of rovolul
lion that a watch does in ono
year, and thoy will havo covered a
distance equal to twonty-oight
complete circuits of tho earth."
What stupendous working
l powers your tiny little ma
chine 1ms; nud how little at
tention you givo it until it lins
refused to go further. "Tired
out." Tho accumulation of old
oil, particles of dirt, so minuto
you can't see it, have so added
to its burdens, that it refuses
to go further. Now is the
time to send it to n watch
maker, not until now, for it
will no longer go as it should.
How much, better to givo it all
the attention it needs while it
yet can go. Is it no better
than, a common lawn mower ?
You givo it less attention.
Would 3rou think of running a
mower for a year or two stea
dily every day without n little
oil, something to help it over
tho rough places. Yet you
aro lotting your valuable littlo
tiirio piece weur itsolf out, sim
ply for want of a littlo atten
tion. It is our busi083 to
tako euro of your watch. Only
expert workmen are employed
for that purpose, and what wo
do is well-done. All compli
cated work finds its way to our
workshop, let us have some of
your easy work nlso. Don't
got into the habit of bringing
it to us after it has boon
