of Chinese Baby
Kong Chong and tils wife met with a
sere affliction last night. Their Infant
daughter of 27 months. Chin Lau, was
fatally scalded In their home. As they
lost a boy baby 50 days old last May.
their sorrow Is doubled by this accident.
Kong Chong has kept a cofiee shop for
many years at Nuuanu avenue and Wylile
street. Last night shortly after dark the
mother asked the cook to bring a bucket
of hot water, which she wanted to make a
warm bath for her little daughter. The
water Was brought, scalding hot, and set
on the floor of the living room, Three lit
tie ones were playing blithely as kittens In
the apartment. The little girl tripped
over the bucket, upsetting Its contents all
over her body.
Dr. Lee, a Chinese physician, was sent
for. Before he arrived word of the acci
dent reached Buena Vista, the United
States military hospital, and Surgeon G.
K. Sims quickly went to the place and
took charge ot the ca;e. All he could do
was to lelieve the pains of the little suf
ferer, who linger, d for ten hours before
dying. There were seven bad scalds dis
tributed over the poor child's body.

It was rumored on the street this morn
ing that George N. Wilcox had given his
consent t5 mn as a senator from Kauai on

Kaulla and KalauokalanI were seen this
morning and -each one confirmed the report
saying that Mr. Wilcox had been seen by
them and that he had not only endorsed
the platform of the tarty but that he had
consented to run.
The leaders of the party seemed very
much pleased with the actlcn of Mr. Wil
cox and pointed It out as proof against the
aasertlon made by many that the Indepen
dents are against the white man.
Mr. Wilcox was met by a Bulletin re
porter, to whom he practically admitted
that he had consented to tun as an Inde
"I hate to runanywav," he said, "lie
cause I think men who are morr In politics
than I am should be candidates."
The leadersof the Independentlparty have

will leave In the Klnau Tuesday going to
Mahukona. They will then proceed to

Tho case was railed In tho Police
Court at about 10 o'clock this fore
noon. Uray was charged with malici
ous Injury by killing Hose's dog. De
fendant pleaded guilty to tho charge
but asked for tho prlvllcgo of putting
forth extenuating circumstances. At
torney Andrews assisted the prosecu
tion. Dr. Clarke, tho dentist, wns the tlrst
wltnosH put on tho stand. Ha testi
fied that the dog was very quiet when
left to herself. However, she was ery
annoying nt times and particularly at
right, when her owner was In the habit
of throwing various articles for her to
fetch. At such times stio would clp
end bark, much to the annoyance of
the boarders. Dray usually had this
I tun between 10 nnd 11 o'clock at nigh'.
M. J. nisjoll testified .is follows

'I will try." I replied, 'If you don't stop
that dog's nolso I will we that she Is

the time. Ho was under the doctor's
care. I think tho dog was a nuisance."
Chas. Itoso testified: "I had been

habit of going nut on the vcrundu to
