Parents of Mr. Wilder Give a Grand
Entertainment at Davenport Place
Acquisition to Honolulu Socie
ty Pleasing Impression.
Davenport Place, the homo of Mr.
and Mrs. W. C. Wilder, was tho scene
of a great social event last bight. II
was In fact the home wedding of the
son, Mr. Charles T. Wilder, Consul
General of Hawaii for the Pacific
Coast during the greater part of tho
Provisional Government and all of tho
Republic's existence. After, the office
became extinct at tho Inauguration of
the TerrUory of Hawaii, Mr. Wilder
made a more Important change In hU
career by becoming annexed to the
state of matrimony. Ho went to Now
York. City and .therein the 10th of
July, married Miss Grace Durr, daugh
ter of 1 Mr. Amos Burr, general passen
gcr agent of tho New York Central
Railway for the Pacific Slope. His
hosts of friends hero, dating from child
hood's days, were not to be deprived,
however, of the pleasure of "dancing r.t
his wedding." The proverbial hospi
tality of his parents and family for
bade such a deprivation.
For tho reception In honor of tho re
cently arrived young couple the spa
cious demesne of Davenport I'luco was
ablaze with colored lanterns, making
tho driveways and paths lanes of light.
Similar Illumination In graceful de
signs, together with wind screens of
flags, adorned the mansion. Doorways
in tho Interior were curtained with
flags, and floral decorations of taste
ful selection and disposal were In every
Quests wero ushered In by the
brothers of tho bridegroom Gardner
K. Wilder, W. C. Wilder Jr., Harry
Wilder and Col. J. W. Jones. They
were received by the host and hostcs,
assisted by Mrs. Mary Gunn, In the
parlor and passed on to present con
gratulations to the happy couple. The
bride made a delightful Impression, be
ing of bright and beautiful features and
graceful form, he Bhe icsponded to the
greeting with a winning smile that
blended amiably and sincerity, Sho
was most becomingly atlred In mousse
lino re sole.
Never has a more animated throng of
Honolulu socleyt been seen than
crowded the drawing and refreshment
ronios, Iannis and verandas. Light re
freshments were carried about In the

Is What; Latest Evidence
WOMAN SW OLD MAN
DRINK FROM A BOTTLE.
Drank a Little Herself and was Very
Ill-Was With Silva
From the testimony given by Mrs.
Gertrude De Aronelles, a Portuguese
woman, at the coroner's Inquest yester
day afternoon, It would seem that the
Dulletln's surmise that Silva died of
the same poison as Joaquin Cabral, Joe
Silva and Augustine Rodrlgucs, al
though the Iloard of Health doctor
came to the conclusion that death had
been caused by a long standing dis
ease. Mrs. Aronelles testified that sho had
been In Sllva's house two days pre
vious to his death. During her stay In
the room with htm, Silva took a gin
bottle and poured out a quantity of the
contents In to a glass. He explained
that the liquor was something of his
own! manufacture and she was about to
drain the glass when he took It from ber
with the words, "You have not the
check to drink before me, your host,'
and drank the liquor himself, saying
that he did this to prove that It was not
poison. Mrs. De Aronelles drank af
terwards. Upon returning home that
night, sho vomited and whs sick. In
this connection, It might be said that
Silva nlso vomited much before his
death and was affected by that blind
ness which the other three Portuguese
complained, of previous to death.
Mrs. De Aronelles stated further that
she had seen Rodrlgues, Cabral and the
other Silva drinking excessively of the
contents of the bottles while tho old
gardener was lying dead and that,
when Police Officer Silva was about to
.take a long drink, she told him of the
effect It had had upon her and ho de
sisted. Dr. Shorey was again put on the
stand and various questions asked him
by Deputy Sheriff Chllllngwortii.
Among the most Important was the
"Would It not be possible that the
old man mixed his alcohol and sugar
and put It Into a bottle which had for
merly contained hellebore In solution
as an ant poison?"
The answer was:
"No, I do not think It Is possible.
The quantity of hellebore in each bot
tle of this liquid was too great to make
that a possibility."
Tho principal witness of the afte--noon
was Xavler, the man who was
with tho old gardener at tho time of
bis death. He stated that on tho day
before his death, Silva was blind but
during tho night, he was able to sen
tho lights. He wanted to call a physi
cian but Silva would not allow him to
When asked why he had not told t till
when the Deputy Sheriff and othcra
wero making an Investigation, Xavler
replied that he did not know. Ho had
been offered some of the liquor by Sil
va but ho did not touch a drop. Xu
vler was very sharply questioned and
ho remembered a great many Import
ant things ho had not thought of be
fore. Antone Joaquin testified to having
drunk somo of the liquor. J. Oaspa,
M. J, Farla, M. J. Slmos, Antono Cas
tro, Antone Plemento and Virginias
Medeiros were the other witnesses.
II. C. Pfluger of 'tho Holllster Drug
Co., said that hellebore was kept in
his place of business but that the'o
were very few calls for It.
At 5 o'clock tho Jury adjourned to
meet again at 2 p. m. today.
