Santa Robs, August 10. Luth
er Burbank of Hub city, known all
. i . it
over tne world as tuo "wizra or
horticulture," on account of his
wondoiful evolntions in the voge
tablo kingdom, promises an evolu
Hon in sugar onltnro, which at
prosont is stirring thu planters of
the Hawaiian Islands. In the
Hawaiian Islands thore are two
favored varieties of sugar cano a
Bmall variety, which' grows all the
way from six to ten ti;ut in hoight,
ana is about one inch in diameter
and contains from twenty to
twenty-six per cent of sugar; the
other variety attains a height of
from twenty-five to thirty feet,
with a diameter of two inches, and
contains only about ten per cent
The planters in the islands are
desirous of having a larger caue
which will contain the same per
coulage of sugar as the small
cano. They have approached Mr.
Burbank in the matter, and he
has undertaken the work. When
seen today by "Tho Examiner"
correspondent, Mr. Burbank said
thoro was no doubt at all th-tt
such a cane could be produced ih
dcsiied, although it would tako
..yeara. to bring it la-perfection.
j namely, to contain the same per
' cootaue of euor as the small cane.
Mr. Burbank had ptirposod visit
iug the islands this fall, for the
purpose of rcsearoh, but the ouor.
mous amount of work ho has on
hand will prevent him. The
seeds, however, will bo sent him
from the islands in September,
and he will propagate them at bis
experimental grnuuds here. In
order to do this be is now making
arrangements to have a boiler anil
appliances put in mm of his largo
greonhouses, so that the seeds can
bo sown and nourished iu tropi
Mr. Burbank says that so far
Very little experimenting has been
dono with tropical plants. He
will visit the islands next sum
Another important branch of
evolution in plant life is being
considered by the wiztrd, which
may mean a complete revolution
in coffee production. Coffee plan
tors in several parts of the world
have mado propositions to Mr.
Burbauk to propagate a plant
r . which will yield a purer ooffm
. L What is most needed, says Mr.
Burbank, is a richer flavor and a
better quality of ooffoe. He lia
recoived many requests to under
take the work and will probably
visit Vera Cruz and Central Amo
rica to solect his own seeds. He
Will also experiment with India
Mr. Bur bunk's wondorful
achievements in the past iu the
oreations of fruits, vegetables,
flowers, trees, shrubs, etc., are
sufficient guaranteo that iu the
evolution of sugar and coff.io cul
ture he will be just as sncoustiful.

necessary for tho Judgo to dis
continue tho aossion of tho Police
Court until an hour later,
A crbo of death at Makoo, Koo
lauloa, under rather peouliar cir
cumstances, has just come to light.
Attorney A. S. Humphreys who
returned from tho place three or
four days ago tells the following
''I went down the road to Hau
ula Sunday to appear in a case
in which Dr. A. B. Cartor was in
terested. When this was finished
I was approached by a Chinaman
who whhod to retain mo in what
he said was a murder caso.
"Through Judge ltatbbum, act
ing as interpreter, the Chinaman
stated that his brother's houso at
Makao, near tho residence of Dr.
Carter, had been raided last Sat
urday night by polico officers in
soarch of opium.
"The brother bad appeared on
tho sceno and, seeing the officers,
started to ruu. hie was pursued
by ono of tho natives, overtaken
and struck across the forehead
with a olub. Tho blow stunned
him and, falling into a ditch hard
by, he was drowned.
''The Chinaman .was unable to
pay the fee I anked and that en
ded my connection with the case
in a professional way.
"Whilo at Dr. Carter's place
afterwards thu same Chinaman
appeared and askod us to go to
the houso where tho corpse lay.
This we did. Evidently' death
bad come fully 48 hours before.
Tho body was swollou and thore
was every indication that death,
had como by moans of suffo
"Thore wa? au ahraisiou on the
left oar and across the right eye.
From the color, these wore post
mortem. Thore was, howovor, a
contusion on tho loft sido of tho
forehead whiob Dr. Carter said
was caused by n blunt instrument
of some kind. This must have
renderod the Chinaman uncon-soious."
"An Hawaiian livincr near bv
and supposed to know something
about the caso, was called in. All
ho knew was that at about mid
night Saturday night some people
had run by outside. Tho langu
age used was Hawaiian and the
people evidently greatly excited.
Ho could not distinguish what
was being said.
"While riding by tho placo
Monday morning ho had discover
ed tho dead Chinaman in the
ditch. It was further learned by
us that tho complaining China
man had based his statement ou
hearsay. After sifting the raattor
as completely as I cuuld I came to
tho conclusion there was uo evi
dence which would jiutify the ar
rost of anyone on the charge of
having murdered the Chinaman
aud gave this as ray opinion to
tho man who had sought to retain
"Tho Chinamen in tho district
are very much excited over tho
matter. Sinco my return soveral
leading Chinose merchants huvo
Bought to retain mo to proceed
with the arrost of the native polico
otficer on tho charge of murder.
I declined to occpt retainer, foil
ing it would bo an outrage to
arrest tho policoman in question
upon the ovidenoo ot baud."
At tho Coroner's inquest tho
evidonoe was brought out that the
Chinamau jumped out of a window
whilo a raid wiib iu progress, and,
falling into the ditch, wasdrowned.
Tho verdict was accidontal death.
