It is a strango coinoidonco that,
whilo Minister Damon's bill to
provide for tho preservation of
ancient hoiaus and puuhonuas is
ponding in tho Legislature, a hei
au not hitherto heard of in these
days should havo boon unearthed
in tho suburbs of Honolulu. That
is what happened yoBterday.
Col. Gpo. "W. Macfarlano, who
lately leased tho Bishop premises
at Waikiki, whoroon to establish
somido annex to tho Hawaiiua
Hotel, had a gang of seven Japa
nese at work yesterday morning
leveling off nomo mounds in the

the mothod of cutting off tho
roots. Thoro was not much left to
hold up the treo when tboy knock
ed off work for the noon hour.
As the Japanese were approaoh
ing tho spot at ono o'clock, tho
elements performed a regular
freak. A galo rattled the foliago
of tho tall palms like castanets.
Tho undrminod tree shivered in
tho blast and began to reol to its
fall. Even tho ground rumbled
and, it is authentically stated, tho
awa and mullet in an adjacent
pond leaped upon thoir finB clear

It was in vain to try to get that
gang to resumo work at tho same
spot. Only tho foreman, through
fear of losing tho whole employ
ment, returned. Ho began delv
ing in the soil a whitish sub
stanco, either volcanic ash or
decomposed coral sand whon
closo to tho surface he found an
ontiro skeleton. It was in a sit
ting posturo with arms oxtendod
over the head, as if tho subject
had been warding off a blow whon
struck down to his ultimate tomb.
Thoro was another skeleton dis
covered not so well united in
frame. When a Bulletin report
er inspected tho ,scono at six
o'clock tho bones had been placed
in a heap, tho most conspicuous
feature of which was a row of
five skulls. Somo of these had
porfect sots of teeth intact. Only
ono was badly broken. Another
had a tomplo dinged in, as if from
a spear thrust.
Tho Golgotha thus exhumed is
