BETHEL : STREET,
The following lotter was recoiV
od from Hilo by tho last Kinau:
"People out in "Wafakoa and tho
vicinity who boliovo in omens are
very muoh frightened ovor an oo-
ourronce hero a few days ago. In
tho early evening a huge, blaok
pig made its appoaranco in the
vicinity just as tho sun was going
down One by ono the people
oamo from thoir houses and chas
ed the pig which kept just far
enough ahead to evade the would
"The chase was kept up for two
or three miles. Suddenly coming
to a larco pond, tho pig made a
jump and disappeared holow the
surface of tho wator. Thinking
the an i mul had drowned several
nativoj dived into tho pond but
could find no traces of it. This is
what sot the natives to talking.
Luey declared mat tue pig was
none othor than Eamapuaa, tho
Oahuan warrior who courted Pele
and was repulsed. They state
that it is only a matter of a littlo
timo before Pole makes a visita
tion to "Wainkoa since Eamapuaa,
hor natural enemy, was discover
ed at that placo.
Tho story of Eamapuaa and
Pele is porhap3 unknown to a
great many so that a brief resumo
will not bo amies.
Both Polo and Eamapuaa wore
humans but Hawaiian bards havo
sent stories of their romarkablo
deeds down tho agos until they
have been transformed into gods
iu the imagination of the people,
ouo taking the form of. molten
lava and the othor that of a half
hog. The powers of Polo, tho
boautiful Queen of Fire, and those
of tho warrior Eamapuaa were
about equal although it must be
admitted Pele had tho best of it
on several occasions.
Eamapnaa mado a proposal of
marriage to Pelo but was refused.
Becoming angry ho went by night
to tho little villago of tho Pelo
family and butabored all but sevon
of tho males. Tho romainder of
tho people fled to tho hills and
hid in a cavo. Eamapuaa and his
followers undertook to dislodge
tbem. As bo was digging through
tho top of tho cave, tho earth
trembled and a stroam of Ihva
flowing at a great rate of spoed,
swept down tho hillsido, covered
tho cavo and all but overtook
Eamapuaa and his followers who
were forcod to tako to thoir canoos
Tradition has it that Pelo was
not killed iu tho cavo but that sho
was transformed into fire. Wheu
ovor Eamapuaa makes a visit to
Hawaii Pelo breaks forth in all
her anger and seeks to destroy
him. Tho districts in which ho
makoi his appoaranco aro always

Paele, a Hawaiian, aged about
fifty years committed suicide at
his homo in Eakaako this fore
noon by cutting his throat from
ear to ear, completely Bov.ering the
trachea and both artorios. Life
did not laBt vory long after such a
slashing. Dr. Emerson, who wont

puty Marshal Ohillincwottb, says
that it was tho most complete job
of the kind ho had evor seon douo.
With fifteou surgeons on tho ppot
at tho timo of tho deed and ready
to get to work immediatoly, his life
could not hnvo been saved.
Paolo had for somu time past,
lived in tho houBO of John Hilo in

which upon taking firm hold, had
rendered him vory morbid. In

tives to bo slightly inBano.
Although Paolo had never
shown any suicidal tendencies, his
actions yestorday wero so iitmugo
as to make his relatives mora
watchful than ovor. Ho was not
left to himself a momont. Under
this clnso watoh ho soemed to
