Honolulu has not passed
through such a siege of hot
weather in years as wo had a
week ago; tho present relief
may bo only temporary and
tho hot spell may return at
During warm weather somo
people's ideas go to cold drinks,
others to ico cream. To buy it
means money, to make it
means economy. Freezers vary
as everything else tho Gem
and the White Mountain
are so much alike you cannot
tell the difference except in the
price if you buy in other shops.
With us the White Mountain,
jr which has tho longest pedigree,
is tho cheapest; it's the way
we buy. Other stores charge
more for it than wo do because
they don't buy right. We sell
them varying in size from one
to six quarts.
Garden Hose is as plentiful
with us as tho stars in the
heavens and wo havo it in pure
rubber nnd cotton It's garden
fixing weather. Yard brooms
arc needed and wo have them.

To tho question propounded by
u Bulletin reprcHentntivn, ns to
whether tho coireo treos planted
by thn Wninnno pliintnlioit uom
puny would produce- any hcrriVs
this year, manager Ahreus an
Bwered: "Well, rnther. Six or
Bovon tons at the lcuat." Know
ing that the colTeo phiutntion was
comparatively youugthe reporter
naked for further information,
and in respouso Mr. Ahrons
"Wo havo about sixty acres
planted in colTeo on somo of our
land about four miles up tho
valley. It is planted on the sido
hills and in tho little valleys. Wo
find it does bettor in tho bottom
of tho valleys whore it is most
sheltered from tho wind. Wo
havo betwoon fifty and sixty
thousaud trees planted, all of
which uro doing well and look re
markably healthy aud vigorous.
About ton thousand of these trees
are now bearing. They aro not
quite threo years old, yet they are
loaded dowu with berries. Homo
of them were sot out two or threo
mouths onrlier than others, but
the older treos I tun coniidont will
yield not loss than two pounds to
tho tree. I went over
tho plantation yostordtiy with Mr.
Dillingham of tho railroad. He
was so surprised at what ho saw
that I hud to cut off a lot of bran
ches with the fruit on, as ho said
his friends would not boliovo him
unless he had something to back
up his statomonts."
"Well," continued Mr. Ahrons,
"wo Bholl cot six or seven tons of
coffee oir those treos this sousoii,
which is a vory gratifying result
to me, and proves that my faith
in tho Woianno hills as coll'eo-pro-ducors
was not misplaced. Those
trees havo not been artificially
irrigated; they havo had no mois
ture whatever except from tho
rainB and dews at night. I havo
no meaiiBof tolling you what tho
rainfall is on tho cotreo plantation,
but it is moro than is generally
estimated. I havo noticed that
tho Boil is naturally dump up
there, which I uttributo'to subtor
ranoau springs. Wo find many of
theso in digging down. Wo havo
quito a number of men at work on
the coffco plantation, but thoir
number varies as required. Some
times wo have as many as fifty."
In further conversation Mr. Ah
rons said ho considered the soil
and climato of tho Waianao foot
hills as especially adapted to tho
production of coil'ee. and thai after
tho promising results of this year
ho would probably go into it
more extensively thuu over. Ma
chinery for cleaning and prepar
ing tho coffoo for market is ul
reudy nt tho sugar mill in readi
ness to bo sot up.
In an adjoining valloy and on
land owned by tho sumo company
Carl Widomuun has a forco (if
twonty-fivo men clearing oil' lund
for another coll'eo plantation. Ho
has lately built a handsome resi
douco there, with olIiceB, otc, nnd
has laid out a lino garden with
terraces and other permanent im
provements. It will bo a bounti
ful mountain homo when com
pleted. No coffoo has yet boon
sot out but a largo tract iB being
cleared in readiness.
About two miles from tho Ah
rons and Widomann plucos is tho
plantation of tho Makaha Coffee
Company, situated in tho upper
part of tho Makaha valloy. This
company has a long lease on about
500 acres of land of which probably
100 is available for coffoo. Thoy
havo built a good road from thoir
place to connect with tho Waianao
plantation road. This company
18 incorporated, tho stock boing
owned by a number of Honolulu
business men, of whom F. B.
Me.Stockor, T. A. Low and W. H.
II')nt' uro prominent. Thoy com
nii'iicfd work in April, 189-1, and
employ twolvo Jupunuso and an
overwer. Up to date they havo
about fifty acres ok'.irod and ready
for planting. They have a euro
fully kept nursery of two acres
with 1H0,000 coffee plants iu a
thriving condition. From (50,000
to 80,000 of then- plant are about
eighteen months ulit and will bo
not out this fall. Of the other
plnnts about (J0,000 aro a year old
and tho rest only a fow months.
The Waianao stream risrs in tho
Makaha Valley on the lands own
ed by thiM company ami th coffee
plantation is favorably situated,
having a southerly slope. Wild
coffee abounds in the vicinity but
no effort has. been mado to gather
it for market. Tho comuany has
ordered the necessary machinery
aud it is duo hero in about eight
months, rud v ,i! V iu readiness
for uso by tlio timo tho trees
commence to bear. An oilicor of
tho corporation -aid this morning
that he believed hh company had
tho best spot on tho island of
Oahu for coffoo raising, although
ho admitted that the showing
made by Mr. Ahrens' placo was
wonderful considering the age of
tho trees Experiments havo
shown that the loss in transplant
ing from tho nursery is less than 5
Iu a spur of tho Makaha velloy
totiio right of tho plantation just
described A. V. Gear has lately
secured control of two or threo
hundred acres of land, which is
suitable for coffee culture. Ho
will probably orgauizo a company
in n short timo for tho purpose of
going into coffeo planting ou an
extended scale. His land is favor
ably situated and has all tho ad

Detective David Kaapa's work
in tho recent robbery of tho
Tramways Company's office is be
ginning to boar fruit, and tho
final clearing up of tho mystery
connected with it seouis to be on
ly a matter of timo. Today for
tho first time siuco tho day of tho
robbery has Kuupa had anything

as to now developments in tho
When asked about tho affair
this morning he opened his
private desk and took therefrom a
logal-looking document aud hand
ed it to tho roportor. It was a
search warrant directing tho offi
cer to search tho promises of
Arthur Fitzgerald for tho money
stolon from tho Tramways Com
pany. It wa3 datod August 21st,
tho day of tho robbery, and was
issued almost immediately after
tho robbery was reported.
"This shows you," said the
detectivo, "that my suspicions
and theory, . about tho rob
bory wore correct and that I was
after tho right men, I say
men becauso I am satisfied
Fitzgorald was not tho
only one concerned iu the job. I
searched Fitzgerald's houso thor
oughly that morning but could
not find what I was looking for.
However, tho ovonts of yesterday
afternoon and this morning havo
shown that I was aftor the right
In rosponso to a request of tho
Bulletin mau to give him tho
details of his operations siuco tlio
robbery, as far ns could bo mado
public without disclosing ovidenco
which would intorfero with tho
capture of tho rest of tho gang,
dotectivo Kanpa said: "Well,
aftor tho finding of tho broken
box by Mr. Pain, I mado a sys
tematic search of tho vicinity with
two or throe men I could trust. I
did not tell you reporters
what I found but it will
do no harm to lot you know
now. On tho sumo day about
half a milo from where tho box
was opened I found ono of tho
canvas money Backs Btolou from
the money box. It had no money
in it but it was nearly filled with
tho torn onvolopes used to put up
tho 25 cont packages of change'by
tho TraniwayB people I then
knew that tho thiovos had probab
ly sorted out tho money aud taken
only tho larger coins with them.
I suspected thoy had hiddou the
nickolB nnd dimes somowhero iu
tho vicinity until tho inattor should
blow over and it would bo safo to
oirculato thorn. I kopt a closo
watch on tho neighborhood over
sinco and had Fitzgorald under
my eye, but could gaiu no
furthor information until it
was reported to mo yesterday
afternoon that somo children
playing in I. P. Petorson's barn
at Kapalama had found a buudlo
of bedding in which woro sovoral
of tho Tramway Company's pack
ages containing fivo nickels ouch.
I took a hack at once nnd inves
tigated and found inside the bun
dle a quautity of nickels. In all
there was SllG.UO, and although I
Boarchod tho placo most thorough
ly I could liud no moro.
"ThiB barn," continuod tho de
tectivo, "is situated in tho rear of
tho throo Peterson cottages on tho
Insuno Asylum lano. Near it is
an old houBO occupied by Arthur
Fitzgorald. It is probably fifty
yards from tho barn. Tho find
ing of tho money so closo to
Fitzgerald's house mado mo
moro than ovor cortain that ho
was one of the robbers. It was 3
o'clock yesterday afternoon when
1 got back to tho station
houso with tho bag of
nickels I hnd found in tho barn,
and how in the world tlm Rnj.i.v,.
TIN found out my diseoveiy m "
time to get it in the paper J can't"
imogino. After depositing the
money I took out two of my men
and posted thorn in tho barn with
J instructions to watch for nnyono
' coming around nnd especially to
watch Fitzuorald's Iiour niwl haa
who wont in or out. I wanted to
find out who Im'b confederates
wore, or rathor I wanted to verify
somo other evidence 1 havo which
1 cannot fell you. I wont ont
again nl 11 o'clock and took out
two moro tnon to roliovo the
othors, one of thorn" boing Ah
Fat, who is ono of my Chinese
assistants. 1 then came back o
find out Fitzgorald's doings. 1
found that ho had pqt tin
his hack about 11 o'clock
in tho Ohineso stable whoro he
keeps it and had tried to got thtf
Chinaman to lot him havo another
horse nt H o'clock this morning,
as ho claimed to havo a good pay
ing job on hand for that- hour.
TIu'b made me think something
would happen and I remained at
tno station House all night.
"Shortly aftor 3 oclock this
morning one of tho policemen 1
had left in Peterson's barn tele
phoned to tho offico that Ah Fat
hud been Bhot by Fitzgorald at
tho barn. With sovoral officers I
wont out in the patrol wagon nnd
found Ah Fnt Buffering from a
bullot wound in tho loft ley. Ho
was not much hurt, so wo put him
in tho wngon ami went, aftor Fitz
gerald aud arrested him short
ly afterwards and brought
him to tho station house.
Wo also soarched his house 'ngniu,
finding a quantity of stolon pro
porty belonging to Tim Murray,
Manuel Perry and othors.
"At the police station Ah Fat'g
wouud was ottouded to. It was
iu tho upper part of tho loft leg
but only n ilesh wound. Ho says
that about 3 o'clock thoy saw
Fitzgerald coming townrdB the
barn with a riilo in his band.
They romniucd quiet to seo what
ho would do. When pretty closo
to thn barn ho suddenly stopped,
raised his rifle and fired. Ah Fnt
wnq hit and fell to tho ground ex
claiming, "Fitzgerald shot mo."
Aftor firing the one shot Fitz
gerald turned round nnd wont to
wards his houso. Tho other
officer did not follow him.
but made for tho nenresl
telephone. I think Fitz
gorald went to tho barn nt 3
o'clock with tho intention of get
ting the rost of tho money, which.
I am satisfied is concealed about
there .somewhere, and saw the
two officers waiting for him:
Knowing that his game was up
he must havo shot at thorn out of
pure meauuess. It was full moon
and Fitzgerald was recognized
by both tho nion.
"Fitzgorald was armed with a
govomnient Springfield riilo and
had on n cartridge bait with two
cartridges in it. After .firing at
Ah Fat ho had put a fresh
cartridge in the gun. We found
sixty rounds oE ammunition in a
trunk in his room. Ho mado no
resistance whon arrested but has
refused to any a word about tho
shooting or the robbery sinco. 1
am satisfied that Fitzgorald was
one of tho principals in the tram
ways robbory but it is tho others

any more about tho ca9o now
without disclosing matters which

dou whore ho keeps all sorts of
curiosities which ho hns captured
from thieves and other criminals.
Ho brought out Fitzgerald's rifle
and cartridgo bolt and tho vory
bullot which wont through
Ah Fat's leg at 3 o'clock this
morninrr. It nassed through Mm
man's lug aud tho boards of the
stable and was found by the officer
this morning imbedded iu tha
