Martin Mulverhil), a soainnn on
tho Baltimore who enjoys the
glory of having ''stood boforo
Sharkoy," nearly caused a riot on
Fort stroet near King last night,
between men of his ship and
othors of tho Bennington. A
young sailor named Korr, belong
ing to the latter vessel, was stand
ing on tho street talking to his
mates when Mulvorhill sud
denly rushed up and grabbed
him violently, at tho same tiino
crying out, "You thiof, give me
my money." Kerr demurred to
this action, when Mulvorhill
struck him twice and tho battle
began. Iho men belonging to
tho reepoctivo crows took sides in

Mr. Henry Smith, clerk of
Judiciary, writes this noto:
"Perhaps my misunderstanding
of tho Star contention lies in tho
editor's misunderstanding of tho
basis used. Tho Chief Justice's
percentage of criminality is based
not only on tho total of popula
tion, but also on the total of those
actually convicted. That is to
say, those of any one race who
woro not convicted aro credited to
the good of that race, precisely
what tho census statistician now
contonds for. Take the case of
HawniiauH, for instance, tho Chief
Justico has debited them with
7.85 percent of criminality, where
as if wo eliminate the 15,000 and
odd children, tho percentage
would be increased to 12.40 iior
cont. If I understand tho Star
correctly, its contention is that
7.85 per cent charged to Hawai
ians is too high."

According to his story, more than'

The recent rains have been
so heavy that they have filled
the reservoirs to over-flowing:,
but at the same time the water
has to be used so soon, that it
does not have time to settle
properly, and the result is that
the water is discolored more or
less, and is not fit to use. This
seems to us just the time to
