THE CHINESE HOSPITAL.
Yesterday brought forth a great
ovciit for tlio Ohiucso colony of
Honolulu and the wholo group.
It was nu ovont that reflected,
much honor on tlio wealthy Chin
cso of this city, and ouo in which
all huniauc hearts cannot but re
joice. Practical regard for suffer
ing humr.uity is a criterion ,of
civiliatiou, and tlio Chinese
evince that notnworthily by pro
viding a hospital for their own
sick and injured folk. Thoir
leaders on the occasion of thu in
stitutionV formal opening fitly
characterized the starting of the
enterprise as a stop onward aud
upward. Their clear admission
that western ways aio worthy of
adoption by their conservative
race, if it wcie only in this ouo
respect of care for the sick aud
BiiHeriug, goes some way in prov
ing that if the Chinese are slow to
change they are far from being of
stagnant mind. Those of other
nationalities who were present at
the ceremonies in question would
have noticed other evidences iu
the same line. Most of tlio joung
er men of tho Chinese there, in
particular those brought up and
educated here, woro dressed in
tlio European style. Tho Chiueso
mode is much tho more ai Untie,
prettier and inoro comfortable,
and tlio change must bo taken as
a real sacrilico for the sako of
coming so much nearer into har
mony with those nationalities
from whom thoy havo obtained
real benefits, com pared with which
tho imro matter of clothes sinks
into insignificance. What was
most important of all, iu connec
tion with the event, was beautifully
rofoned to by Mr.Dtunon. That is,
the advance toward the grand
ideal, to which all true civilization
is tending, of human brotherhood.

The last mail from tho Coast
brought littlo news of import con
cerning tho Australian murderer
Butlei or Ashe, tho extradition
proceedings not yet having ended.
There is littlo doubt that thoy
would bo finished in timo to nllow
of his sailing on the Alameda
which is due at this port next
Thursday. His attorneys were
having trouble with tho United
States Court, having eudeavoied
iu tho stuto courts to levy nu
attaohmont for their foes on tho
I jewelry and other property found
I in Butler's possession and needed
as ovidonco in his trials. For
this thoy have been cited for con
tempt before tho United States
Court on direct orders from tho
Attorney-General at Washington,
andtueir chances for heavy punish
ment aro good, as Unitod States
courts always punish contempt
with all the severity tho law
From a rocont issuo of The Call
it would appoar that Butler was
iu Honolulu in 1887, beiug at that
time on H. M. S. Triumph as a
marine. He was known on board
that vessel as "Dnikio" Ashe. lln
was identified tho othor day iu
Sau Francisco by John Conway,
now in tho employ of Goodnll,
Perkins & Co., and Thomas. Col
lins, iu tho office of Ihe Superin
tendont of Streets, who were at
ouo timo sailors on board H. M.
When tho two old sailors saw
the picture of Butlor thoy recog

when the Triumph, while on her
way out hero from England, put
into Chile While there a dotach
rnent of meu were put on board
from the ship Liffey, which was
then doing duty ns a prisouship
for the confinement of minor
offenders. Ashe was among these.
He had been confuted on board
the LifToy for stoaliug a ring. At
Victoria Conway and Colling,
whobe terms had expired, left thu
ship, aud lost sight of Ashe.
At tho City Prinon Con wny and
Butler recognized each other im
mediately, and they talked for
some timo. To Conway it is nutl
et stood Butler outlined his pro
posed defense when he is tried in
Australia, and also his reasons for
now being known as Weller.
Conway has told his friends
that Ashe mado this statement.
Ho had a mining claim in tho
Blue Mountains, but had no capi
tal to work it, consequently ho ad
vorttsed in the Sydney papers for
a companion with somo means.
Captain Leo Wollor responded,
ho said, and agreed to join him.
On tho day of "Welter's death
Butler said ho had left" the placo
whero the mine was located, and
on his return ho found the dead
body of Weller in. the hole which
ho had been digging.
He said ho was "thunderstruck"
at this discovery and for a timo
did not know what to do. To re
turn to Sydney and report the
death ot his late companion would

murderer, aud as ho had no way
of disproving this he decided to
cover tho body up and get out of
the country tho best and quickest
way bo could. Consequently ho
said ho mado his way to New
castle and shipped on tho Swan
hildn under tho name Leo Weller,
thinking that should any inquiry
be mado for Wollor tho conclu
sion would bo arrived at that ho
had shipped and left the colonies,
thus averting any investigation as
to what had become of him. Tho
carryiug away of tho effects of
Wollor, ho continued, was a part
of the plan, so nothing could be
found belonging to the victim
that might in any way lend to an
inquiry as to his whereabouts.

On motion H. M. Whitney Jr.

to confor with tho officers of tho

rates agreed on not to-be less than

Mr. ' O'Connor from the First
Regiments brought up tho
subject of tlio approaching
tour of the Australian baseball
team, but it was decided to leavo
the matter of a gamo with them to
the three captains, as the League
could tako no official action. The
sentiment amoug tho delegates
was decidedly iu favor of getting
up a special team to take tho con
ceit out of tho man from tho Anti
podes. The best of good feeling pre
vailed at the meeting and all
present promised to do their best
to make tho season of 1897 tho
most successful in the baseball
historv of the Islands.
Auchored is what tho man said
when ho dropped into tho Anchor
Saloon. Why? said his friend.
Because you can always get a
cool refreshing drink sorved by
gentlemanly attendants, and 'if
you happen to drop in during
luuch hour you will bo regalpd
with solids as well as liquids, lu
fact the lunch at tho Anchor is
said by many to bo the best iu
town. The celebrated Seattle
beer is on tap. It is sparkling
aud ico cold. Tho finest of wines
aud liquors iu town are to bo had
at this popular rpsort.
Of tho Secretary Diso Plow ono
of tho most successful plantation
managers writes tho Pacific Hard
ware Co.: "I havo delayed writing
you about tho work of tho Secre
tary Disc Plow, until I satisfied
myself in regard to its proper
working. J am busy
plowing a field with it now, and it
is doing fiuo work, nnd I hope for
good results from tho thorough
plowing it is receiving."
