years ago by Professor Eoebolo
for tho destruction of blight on
troes snob as a lime, ta
marid, orange and the like. It may
bo said in passing that this lady
bug has done a great deal of good
work since its introduction.
The white fluffy covering is not
tho bug, but tho light shell in
which it remains for four or five
days during tho brooding soaeon
and then comes out in all its glory.
The shell seen all over the trees
and on the streets underneath are
not dangerous to foliage aB sup

Thoso peoplo who havo on idea
that tho lady bugs should bo kill

Woman Die While
Treated With Prayer.
Namakaokoahi (Tho Eyes of
Firo) is a native some fifty years
of ago who was arrested last oven
ing for practising kahunaism on a
Eewalo nativo woman, Kiha by
name. From tho appearance of
things thore will be some very
difficult questions for the kahuna
Namakaokoahi was born in Ha
waii. Aftor becoming a young
man he moved to Molokai where
ho lived until recently, when ho
came to Honolulu.
Namakaokoahi has beon doing
business for about twenty years.
He has beon hoard of quite a num
bor of times in Honolulu but only
until yesterday was anything tan
giblo discovered against him.
Deputy Marshal Chillingworth
was callod to the homo of Kiha in
Rowalo in (ho afternoon. Ho
found tho woman drad and hor
body badly swollen. On inquiry it
was learned that Namakaokeahi
had beon praying over and giving
her various kinds of decoctions for
soreral days. Tho kahuna, being
at the houso at tho time, was ar
rested and looked up.
Tho case will como up in tho
Polico Court tomorrow morning.

riouB streets id Honolulu whoro it
is now operating its lino of tram
ways, I .u"hvo to say that I am of
the opinion that tho Tramways
Company is entitled by its fran
chise to lay and maintain such
double tracks. This opinion is
based upon tho several Acts upon
which tuo franchlso was grantod.
In 1884 tho first franchise was
granted to W. It. Austin and his
associates. The franohiso granted
by tins Aot or tho Legislature ex
pired by limitation of timo. The
franchise was ro-enacted by tho
Legislature of 188G and was again
re-enacted by tho Legislature of
1888, which extended tho timo for
tho completion of the tramway
until tho 15th, of September, 1889.
Before this last mentioned date
the Hawaiian Tramways Compa
ny Limited had beon organized
and constructed all of tho linos of
track now in oporation by that
company; suoh line howevor be
ing a single track with tho noces
sary switches and turnouts.
Tho question whioh has boon I
considered is whether or not tho
Tramways Company is now enti
tled to change its lino from singlo
to doublo tracks. Tho limitation
of tho franohiso is controlled by
the 7th Bub-division of section G
of chapter 84 of tho Sossion Laws
of 1881, as amended by chapter 18
of tho Session Lawo of 18SG, whioh
is as follows:
"That the said railway must bo
completed auci equipped and ready
ror passengers witmn two yoarsv
and it not so completed within tho
said two years then all rights
hereby grantod shall terminato
and tho franohiso horoby granted
necomn void and of no ofreot.
Provided that for such portions
of said road as shall at that timo
be completed and equipped as
abovo required tho ncht heroin
granted shall stand and be of full
foree and offect."
The timo limit mentioned in
mm Huu-iuviBion or ejection o wos
oxtonded by tho Laws of 1883 to
September 15, 1889. Tho Tram
way Company having laid its
singlo track with tho necessary
switohos and turnouts and equip
ped tho sarao for public travel
befor tho 15th day of Soptombor,
1889, in my opinion, earned tho
full benefit of the franohiso for
such portions aa bad beon com
plolod and equipped, whioh in
eluded tho right to lay n double
ns well as singlo track on tho
streets mentioned in their lettor
of Juno 5. Tho franchlso boiug
in full torco and effeot so far as
these stroots aro concornod au
thorizes tho Company to lay a
doublo track upon such stroets at
tho presont timo, Tho franchise
was not in tho alternative to the
oxtont of compelling the Com
pany to mako its oloction boforo

Purser Tucker of tho U. S
Transport Conemaugh in an inter
view with a Bulletin reporter
this morning gavo tho following
" Tbo International Navigation
Company with headquarters in
New York, havo six largo Atlantic
greyhounds in course of construe
tion at tho Cramp's Ship Building
Yards. Thoso vessols will cost
over a million dollars apiece, and
will eqtfal any othor linors afloat
in comfort equipment and speed.
As a conBequonco of these addi
tions to the creat floot of Atlantio
stcamors, tho older vessels of tho
International Navigation Co. will
be sbnt out to Pacific vwators to
complete with tho vessels of the
Oceauio S. S. Co. and other Com
panies whoso boats ply in theso
waters. Tho ships Bent out hero
will compare favorably with other
vessols engaged in the Pacific tra
Already tho Ohio, Pennsylvania,
Indiana and Conomaugh have bonn
transferred from tbo Eastern to
tho Western ocean and it is ex
pected that thoso still to como will
draw a great deal of tho passeng

nolulu and San Francisco.
In the course of a year com
petition is likely to greatly reduco
ratos, and the International com
pany will havo its boats running
regularly in tho Paoifio before
that period has elapsed."
Purser Tucker has for a long
time been connected with tho
abovo company. He has travelled
much on boats to Alaska, and just
boforo ho left San Francisco tho
last timo, was offered by tho com
pany a position that would again
tako nun to tboso parts.
