leather Conrardi, bb our readers
know, af ter .boing compelled to
leao Molokui through disagree
ment with tho authorities, went to
China with the intention of spend
ing the rest of his days in endeav
oring to nmoliorate tho sufferings
of lepers in that country. Being
unable, to sccuro official aid in his
benign object, the father shook
tho celestial dust off his feet. Ho
was n through passenger for Am
erica by a steamer that recently
called at Honolulu. Since his
arrival nt San Francisco Father
Oonrardi haB attracted considorn
hle notice from tho health officials
there, as may bo seen by the fol
lowing extracts from two succes
sive issues of The Call :
Itev. Father Conrardi, who, for
the past eight years, has been in
charge of the leper settlement at
Molokai, in tho Hawaiian islands,
succeeding the late FuthorDamieu,
is spending n fow days with Hon-
ry iiottmnnn, at -loo uuerrero
street, preparatory to Boeking a
climate for tho winter where ho
will find relief from asthma, con
tracted on tho windswept lepor
island in tho Pacific.
Father Conrardi has given his
life to tho care of lepers, and has
mado a deep 6tudy of that dread
disease. On tho island where he
haB been stationed there aro about
1100 parsons ufliicted with it. Two
priests look after them, and ore
assisted by fivo sisters of tho
Order of St. Francis. According
to Father Conrardi's statement,
made yesterday, whilo the Hawai
ian Government spouds much
money for their cure, but little
good is accomplished, tho greator
portion ot tho S8U.UUU or S'JO.OOO
annually appropriated being ex
pended iu salaries for a number
of usoloss officials.
After leaving tho islands, Father
Conrardi visited tho lepor colonies
at Canton, in China, and at Ma
cuo. In the former place ho sayB
the condition of tho colonists is
most pitiable. "Tho Chinese,
regard leprosy as a curse, and any
ouo who would think of going to
the place as being accursed," said
tho priest. "Tho Government on
ly allows five yon a year, about
82.50, for tho support of each
lopor. When ono is Bick and
needs assistanco ho is left to his
own care. The Govornmout fur
nishes neither medicines nor
bandages, two primo requisites.
I would stay thoro aud ministor
to their wants if 1 could get
enough for my support, but tho
Govornmout will not allow it. I
would build a hospital to caro for
them, but that requires money.
"At Macao tho condition is a
little bettor. Tho lepers aro given
a certain amount of rice each year;.
Tho wants of the females, bo'th at
Macao and Canton, are looked
after by somo Ficnch and Italian
lay sisters. Last year they re
ceived ovur 2000 persons, in
cluding 1500 bobios. They aro
called Sisters of Carrossa and
Sistors of St. Paul do Chaitres
They raise and educate these
children. Thoy, too, aio in much
need of money."
At Molokai, iu the Hawaiian
islands, tho natives attempt to
raise a littlo fruit and corn, but as
tho plantB approach maturity a
withering wind comeB along and
blights everything. If tho Ha
waiian Government would erect
windbreaks, it might bo possible
to raiso fruit. As it is now, tho
lepers have become discouraged
and aro lazy and indifferent. Thoy
attend school about as thoy please.
Tho Government requires the
girls to ronjain with tho sisters
until thoy aro 10 years of ago, but

tho place of tho Union Steamship
Company's Monowui, in expected

time iu February. She is being
built at tho yaulofDennyBrothers
of Dumbarton. Sho has already
been christened tho Moana, which
iu tho Maori tonguo means "Tho
Sea." Sho will bo 3G0 feet by -11
feet, and 34 foot deep with a
burden capacity of -1700 tons, 1000
tons more than that of tho Mouo
wai. Sho will outstrip tho Mono
wai as to speed, running sixteon
and a half knots on her trial trip.
Sho is calculated to avorago fifteen
knots an hour, loaded, all tho way
betweeu Sydney and San Frou
cisco and to cover the distanco be
tween San Francisco snd Auck
land in seventeen days, where
now, as a rule, it requires twenty
days time for tho Mouowai to
make tho voyage.
The fittings of the Moana will
burpass in eleganco those of any
steamship Bailing tho Pacific, and
her machinery will all bo of tho
very latost invention. Sho will
have saloon accommodations for
200 nassencors. nearly half of
whom may occupy deck cabins
suitably arranged for perfect com
fort in tropical as well as coldtr
climes. Tho best forceblast boilors
will bo put into tho vessel, and all
her saloon cabins will bo ventil
ated by powerful electric fan
motors. Tho ship will be strictly
up to data in all her appointments.
While on his recent visit to
England, James Mills, tho man
aging ditcctor of tho company,
purchased a cargo stoamor of
3000 tons capacity, built by Dox
ford & Sons of Newcastlo-on tho
Tyno. Sho is fust in her class,
aud will run in tho Fijii island
local and sugar trado.
Another vessel ho contracted for
will bo called tho Waikaro. Sho
will have 3500 tons capacity, ii
speed of fifteen knots on trial and
will work also in tho colonial
trade. Mncraillnn of Dumbarton
is building her.
In addition to tho above Mr,
Mills asked for bids from English
shipbuilders ou a 3000-tou Btenm-
or to consort with tho Mararoa
and Monowai in tho intercolonial
fi eight and passenger trade. Sho
will travel fifteen knots and ao-
commodate 270 cabin and 130

Tho trial of George lloughtail
ing on tho charge oEf-olliug liquor
without a lieansn commenced in
th.1 District 0urt this morning,
aud the numerous exhibits of
beer and gin bottles make tho
Court-room look liko a small
liquor store. Tho prosecution is
conducted by Marshal Brown,
whilo Lawyers Creighton and
Kano are lool inir out for tho
Kano, tho fast witness for tho
prosecution testified: Know tho
defendant and hib place of busi
ness on Hotel and Bethel streets.
Was thoro ou tho 30th of August,
Sunday, at half-past boven in tho
morning. Tliero wore two oE us
wont there, Kalonmnae was with
mo. Wo went there for a bottlo
of gin. We got it thero. Don't
kuow who brought the bottles
thoro. Quito a number of pooplo
thoro' sitting on chairs. Saw de
fendant thoro and asked him for a
bottlo of gin. Defendant said:
"Aro you going to got mo into
troublo?" Ho said "go into tho
room." Kalimanao said "Horo iB
tho bottle." I put it in my pocket
and gave the money, $2, to tho do
fondant. When I went out David
Kaapa was tliero and arrested mo
and 1 pulled out tho bottlo of gin.
Did not do anything to identify
tho bottlo at tho time but wrote
my numo ou it horo in the station
liouso. Did not open tho bottle.
It was in the mime condition u I
got it whonKaapa took it from mo.
On cross-examination tho wit
ness said ho first asked defendant
for the gin outside. Ho was thou
told to go into a loom where the
two bottles of gin wore on tho
table. Didn't know who put them
thoro. Thero wore no bottles on tho
table when they first wont iu but
whilo tho people in thoro were
talkiug some ono put thorn on tho
table. Don't kuow who put them
thoro. Tho men in tho room were
haolos. Thoro woro two rooms
together. Was told to go in second
room for tho gin and tound it on
tho table. Put it in my back pants
pocket. Didn't know that Kanpa
was waiting for us. Have novor
f beou arrested for nny offenso. I
was scared at tho timo Kaalm
, tound tho Dottles on my person,
llmd both bottles, my partner had
j none. I pasbed tho mouoy, wholo
dollars. Got tho money from Ka
apa on Saturday evening. Ho told
ub to buy tho gin from Goorgo
Houghtailiug nt half-past seven
on Sunday morning. Didn't say
he would wait for us or what ho
wanted it for but had a suspicion
that n caso was being worked up
against him. Was not promised
nny rewind. Kaapa hassaid that
if dofendant was convicted the
govornmout would rowmd mo.
Kalimanao corroborated tho
main portion of tho first witness's
testimony, but said iu addition
that whon tho money was paid
tho defendant called out to somo
ono to bring two bottles of gin.
Tho witness thought it was
! brought by a halfwhito boy but
i was not sure. This was iu tho
lust room. When wo went in
second room tho halfwhito boy
handed one bottlo to Kano and
put the othor on tho table for mo.
Thoro was no ono olsb in that
room. Kaapa took tho bottles
away and havo not seen thorn to
this day. My impression is I
signed my name on two bottles
last Wednesday. I tasted tho
Btuff last Wednesday and my im
pression is it was gin.
David Kaapa testified to watch
ing tho two witnesses go into
Houghtailing's placo and taking
tho gin from thorn. Ho afterwards
arrested tho dofondantand search.

A decision in admiralty Iiub

tho caso being John F. Bwwler vs.
L. Ahlo. Tho plaintiff chartered
the schooner Mahimahi to Ho
Pai Yet for Bix mouths from Juno
15, 1894. Tho charter party pro
vided that tho charterer should
pay $123 a mouth for the use of
tho vessel, and also bear tho ex
pense of manning, furnishing, re
pairing and running the vessel,
oxcept that the owner should have
tho solo right of choosing and
placing n master in command and
pay his wages. Ahlo sign

formance of all the stipulations in
After tho schooner was running
for somo timo under tho charter,
Bowler as owner consented to
allow tho churtorer to placo iu
command a master of his own
choice. Tho vessel wont ashore
at Waialua on November 14, 1894,
and became a total Iosb. Relating
tho circumstances of the wreck,
tlio Court firulH that it was caused
through no fault of uavi
oation. but by tho act of
God. According to tho
clmrtor party tho charterer, at tho
expiration of tho stipulated pe
riod, was to surrender tho vessel
to tho ownor "in as goodcondi
tion" as she was at tho beginning,
"ordinary use and wear excepted."
Tho Court points out that this
part of tho agreement being only
what the law required anyway is
moro surplusage. In conclusion
tho Court Bays:
"Tho general rule does not ap
ply, that where a duty is imposed,
which is in its nature poBsiblo,
