HALO OF KAMEUAMEHA I.
Among theso articles is tho
fumoiu mala of Kamehamobu the

IPC J1AKANI A LAAMAOMAO.
Auothor is tho famous "lpu,
Makiini a Laamaomao " (wind
calabash of La tiu tomao). Laa
maomao was the tou of Kuapukau
the kuliu of Umi, or Umikuhi
makaokalnui, tho King of Hawaii

i dome of tho rotainorfi ii Umi
i carried falso stories to h u about
Kuapakaa, which Umi beliovod
nud caused him to remove Kua
Iakaa from his position as kahili,
bearer to tho King. Kuapakaa
who was a high chiof himself, was
highly offonded at his position
being given to thoso who
had inado tho complaints
to tho king about him, loft Hawaii
nnd weut to Molokai aud lived
. near Kalaeokalaau. Ho took as a

Tho mother of Laamaomao was

"Your haku (chief) if comiug; ho

kaa made great prupitritious to
receive hij chief. He tilled a
uumber of Iiouboj with food and
fish; livo halaus (houses) with poi
tnro aud potatoos, and iivo more
J with fish. This took sevoral
' mouths to do.
Ouo day hiB wife said, "Your

Sho replied, "He .vill piss hero
Tho next inoruiug Kuapakaa
and his sou Laamaomao weut

thoy woro Ashing tho son said to
his fathor, "A lloet oE cauocs is

plied, "It is your haku (chiof)

near to tho fishing ennoo tho
father said to his son, 'Tho fifth
canoo has tho chiof iu it. Ask
them to land." Tho lad called
out to tho peoplo in tho canoes to
laud because it was goiug to bo n
stormy day. Tho ho'okolo wna
(commander) oriod "You lying

this bo stormy r" Tho boy ro
plied: "I know, it is going to bo
n bad day, as tho uhu 1 lmvo just

peoplo in tho cnuoo kopt on.
The warning was repeated to
caoh oauoo uutil tho wholo Hoot
had passed by. Kunpukaa, iu tua
meantime, bad kept his head bont
down for fear ho would bo recog
nizod by tho peoplo in tho canoes.
As soon as the floet had passed,
Kuapakaa and his son returned to
tho shore, nnd Laamaomao brought
out his wind making calabash and
taking off tho cover commanded
tho wind to hoad off tho ndvanco
canoo of tho fleet which was thon
just entering the Oahu channel.
Instantly n vary strong wind
arose nnd mot tho canoes so that
thoy could make no headway
against it. Tho sea becamo so
rough that some of tho first canoes
King Umi said, "Tho lad in tho
Gshing canoe told us it was going
to bo a bad day, but wo kept on
now wo aro iu trouble. Wo will
turn back and land at his placo as
he asked us to do."
Tho fleet weut back and woro
met on tho beach by tho lad Laa
maomao, who conducted them to
his father's houBe and entortaincd
Kuapakaa remained out of sight,
but kept his son posted as (o what
to do. Ho told him not to put the
cover on his calabash, bo tho storm
continued a number of months. It
was impossiblo to got away oithor
by sea or laud.
At last, tho food began to run
short and what littlo remained was
kopt for the king. Soon his peo

Laamaomao told his father of it

Kuapakaa said, "Lot them dio.

UliUMAIhA STONU OP UMIKUl'A.
Another curiosity is tho Ulu
maika stono if Uraikupa the son
of Ku and Hiua, tho Molokai
atheloto. TJiis stono weighs about
twenty livo pouuds and was used
by him in n game similar to bowl
ing. It is said that when Urai
kupa was going down to tho sea
shore to tako n sea bath, ho would
bowl this stono down ahead of
him, a distance of fivo or six miles
and then start aud run down to
tho beach and get thero nltnost as
soon as the stone. Whon he had
finishod bis bath ho would bowl
this stono up to his homo, near
tho Moyor's placo now. His
parents, as soon na ho loft homo,
would sot up n numbor of
posts mndo of wiliwili wood
with holos in them InrgA onough
for tho stone to pins through, and
when tho stono came bowling up
from tho beach, it would pass
through nil the fino posts aud

DEATH OF PRIY. WARDWELL
Was Caused by Drinking Calbollc Acid
Inquest Will be Held Suffering from Typhoid
and Was Delirious Young Man
from New York Stale.
Among nil tho deaths of United
States soldiers at Honolulu, ono
that happoned yesterday hadjtho
most distressing circumstances.
The victim was Privato Frodorick
Wnrdoll of Co. K, 1st N. Y. V. It
looks at this writing as if ho had
diod by his own act.
Wardell consulted Dr. Wayson
in town on Monday and was
ordered to bed. Ho had already
boeu too long on his feot with the
germs of typhoid fever in his
voins. Mr. aud Mrs. J. W. Mo
Donald, with the hospitality they
had exercised all along toward in
valid boys in blue, gavo the sick
man a chamber in tuoir homo at
Private 0. Tator, in charge of
Y. M. 0. A. work at CatnpMc
Kinloy, undortook the nursing of
Wardell. Tho pationt was labor
ing under strong montal depies
sion, and said ho could not livo to
return to Now York. Mr. Tator
watched by his bedsido nil of
Monday night nnd on Tuesday
evening, Wnrdell being apparent
ly much improved, snatched a fow
short periods of sloop. At 8
o'olock yesterday morniug Tator
rushed to Mrs. McDonald calling
for mustard. Thinking it was for
apoultico tho lady olTored her as
sistance, ,wheuTntor excitedly
told hor'rrOnrittn- had taken
Dr. Wnyson was at onco tolo
phoned for, tho message stating
that his patient was much worse.
Hero a Btraugo thing occurred.
Tolephono central replied that Dr.
Wayson was "sick iu bod," aud
asked for directions as to somo
other physioian. Central was told
to try for Dr. Uorbort. The
strange fact is that Dr. Wayson,
although much worn from bono
volant attendance ou Bovernl sick
soldiers, was not "sick iu bod."
Before Dr. Herbert, who was out
on hiB morning calls, could b
found, a meBsago to tho camp
brought Dr. Wetzel of tho Engi
neers to tho house. Ho was thoro
within ton minutes from tho dis
patch of tho summons, but only
to find Wardoll dead.
Thoro was a glass that Braelled
of carbolic acid ou tho bureau.
This drug had just been used in
tho room for disinfecting tho cus
pidor. Thon Mr. Tator utilized it
for cleansing a clinical thermo
motor. A post mortem oxamiua
tion was mado yostorday ovouiug.
which revealed boyond doubt the
Tact that War 'ell died of carbolic
acid taken internally. This mom
ing Major Emmott, now rank
ing ollicor of tho garrison,
decided that the only proper
courso lor him was to ream-ia the
civil authorities to held a coroner's
One of tho strango circu iiihUiicj-h
of tho caso is that tin putiout's
supply of milk for Tii'-i-day night
was found to havo bon untouch
ed, no biiouiu unvo hau some
every fow hours, but the .ess'ol
showed that not a sup of it had
been takon out.
Major Saguo is acquainted with
tho dead man's family and gives
tho Bulletin information on that
point. Frodorick Wardoll was
born at Poughkoopsio, DutoboBs
country, N. Y., whoro is fathor
was a wollknown dairyman. Ho
was tho oldest son of a largo fami
ly, being 22 or 23 years of ago ut
death. Tho anfortunato man was
a widower, having lost his wifo
and n bnby before enlisting. E. A.

FOR HAWAIIAN REGISTRY
Two More Yessels Coming Under
Obsolete Hawaiian Flag.
They are Barks Euterpe and Star of France
Same Owner as That of Star of
Italy Lately Registered.
Kinney, Ballou Sc McOlanahan
havo iu band the business of pro
curing Hawaiian maritimo regis
try for two vessols. Lincoln D.
Spencor, owner of tho bnrk Slar
of Italy lntoly regit-tored under
writ of mandamus backed by n
Supromo Court decision, is tho
applicant. IVre is no troublo
about the registry of tboco othor
two vessols now. As Collector
Genernl McStockor said this
moruing: "What can I do? I
was served with a writ of raanda
rails compelling im to register tho
Star of Italy." This was in ns
sontingjo nromnrk thnt, until tho
Uuited States took notion iu this
matter ns nho lmd just done in
thnt of Chinese immigration,
presumably tho Collector Gonoral
could not help himself.
Tho present candidates for reg
istry are tho barks Eulorno nnd
Star of Franco. Tho Euterpo is
at 1200 tons register and somo
time ago was in the port of Hono
lulu. The Star of Frnuce is n ves
sel of 1-100 tous, and is now in
AtiBtrnlin. Sho will call hero on
voyago to tho Coast and recoivo
her Hawaiiau papors nnd flng.
The Euterpo is now on hor way to
Australia from the O mst. She is
expected to heave withiu signaling

will bo triininlml to como iu aud

Still uuothor iihw Hawaiian

nud tho latter $00.
It wns found that tho o' oaomen

torday it was decided to wood out
tho twolve moro iuofliciout men

tho salary of the latt r to $(J ) per

It is bolioved that thin plan will
