William McCarthy Fined
$100 for Detaining a
HIS SECOND OFFENSE
AND MAXIMUM PENALTY
Defendant's Eicuse Found a Lame One
Judge Estee Orders Immediate
Return of Clothes of Pro
Judge Esteo, In the United States
District Court, fined William McCar
thy $100, the highest limit, for detain
Iiik the clothing ot a seaman. It wi3
defendant's second offense.
McCarthy testified on his trial tint,
when the prosecuting witness, Henry
M. Llbhy, demanded the return of his
clothing, ho put his arm around Llbby
nnd detained him twenty minutes to
half an hour, while he sent to the polico
department to know if there was a wat
rant against Llbhy so that he, McCar
thy, could not be punished. Judgo Us
tee. In a written opinion, says:
"It does not appear to the Court wh.it
right, McCarthy liad to detain sailors
or what Interest he had In consulting
with the police department about their
arrest. In any event no warrant whs
out for the arrest of the prosecuting
witness, and after McCarthy had ford
lily detained him a prisoner In front of
his house, on one of the public streets ot
Honolulu for about half an hour, Llbhy
struggling vainly to get away, McCar
thy finally permitted this American
sailor in an American port to go free.
"In view of the conduct of McCarthy
no further demand on the part of Llb:y
for his clothing was necessary, nor
could I.lhhy be required to return to
McCarthy's house for his clothes and
subject himself to the peril of further
Indignity from McCarthy."
The Judgment Includes an order to
defendant that he Immediately turn
over to the prosecuting witness nil
clothing nnd effects In his possession
belonging to the prosecuting witness.

NN HI'S IT WALK
DRAWS A BIG CROWD
AND DOES THE TRICK
Smoked Cigar-Smote the Ground
Trod on Hot Rocks-And Then It
Up to Date.
Tho rather unique entertainment of
walking on red hot Btones given by
Papa Ita tho Tnliltlan on Saturday
evening, was witnessed by somo "00 or
800 people, who had gathered In u
large enclosure, near tho Kaiimakaplll
While tho entertainment wns not n
howling success, this fact was due more
to improper management than to tho
feats of Pupa ila, which were applaud
ed upon several occasions, Promptly
at 8:30 Papa Ita appealed within tho
enclosure nnd, tnking n sent close to
tho fiery pit. Indulged In bmoklng a
cigar, entirely oblivious of tho fan
that hundreds of eyes wcro centered on
him. Music had been provided for the
orcnslon. Upon n signal from tho
man In charge of affairs n half dozen
stalwart natives provided with long
poles, proceeded to turn over the hot
bowlders, and thus exposing the side
of the stones which, quite naturallv
contained a great nmount of heat.
This being done Papa Ita approached
the edge of the pit arrayed In a white
garment and bearing In his hand n
large buuch of ti leaves, with which
ho smote the ground, supposedly to In
voke the aid of the Almighty In tho
successful accomplishment of his won
Without any further ceremony Papa
Ita stepped forth upon the stones scat
tered about promiscuously In the pit.
nnd after passing from one end of the
pit to tho other he took his scat pro
vided for Mm.
This particular part of the per
formance Alld not elicit any npplauv.
and it was only during the secund put
of his performance that the nudleti'e
While stepping from stone, to stone
his foot slipped which precipitated him
among some howldeis which were red
hot and still licked by flames. This
part of the performance brought forth
npplnuse"from the audience, nnd whleli
had the effect of destroying to n con
nldcrablo degree the skeptical Ideas of
some present. About this time the rata
began to come down In a pretty steady
stream, practically putting nn end to
It was at this stage of the game that
several In the audience concluded that
they could pcrfoim the act with perfect
Impunity, but It wns noticed that evrn
nftcr tho rain had fallen which would
naturally have a tendency to cool the
bowlders, that thr same Honolulu lie
enters kept pretty closo to the bowl
ders near the edge of the pit.
It Is understood that the pcrformanro
from a financial standpoint wns fairly
satisfactory, although the expense con
nected with the show was considerable.

Business Done Governor's Council
Squatter Found on Land in
Tho Governor's council " met this
forenoon nnd, nlthough thu Bcsslon did
not como to an cud until about 12:15
o'clock this afternoon, there was but
very little done.
1 ho first business brought up for
consideration wns nn application froii
V. Sugn, tho Japanese mcichaiit, for
license to sell liquor at wholesale. This
application was presented by Mr. Ioni
sing. Mr. Suga Intends to put up ,t
piace of business on King street near
the Hanlllmmami bridge. There belus
no objection on tho part ot tho Council
the license was K commended,
Mr. Lansing presented another ap
plication, this ono being from Woi.g
I'c.iit of Kapaa, Kauai, for it light wino
and heel license. Tho meeting decided
not to recommend a license.
Perhaps tho most Important matter
brought up nt tho meeting wns n letter
fiom Mr. Gait of this city, relatltiit
tacts In regard to certain land on I.ll
ha street owned by tho government,
Mr. Gait, wishing to procure this piece
from tho go eminent on account ot Its
proximity to property of his own,
looked Into tho matter and found, thut
there weio pcoplo living on tho land
who claimed to own tho placo In ft-o
simple. As n matter of fact, they had
been on tho land not moro than two
years nnd wcro In tho nature of squat
ters. Tho land wns plainly tho propor
ty of the go eminent.
It will bo remembered that this mat
ter was brought up for consideration .it
n meeting of the Council held not long I
ngu. It was found nt that time that
both Mr. Gait anil the tllshop Kstatn
wero after tho land. It was thought
best by the government to allow tho
mutter to stand until morn Information
could bo procured. At tho meeting this
forenoon, It wns decided to tako action
WIS ill Of
against the parties who were squattl:;
on the land.
Mr. McCandless presented a map of
tho proposed widening of King street
near what will, some time in the fu
ture, bo known as Aaln park. The map
was all that could be desired and It was
therefore approved by the meeting.
Another map was presented by Mr.
McCandless. This was handed him by
the agents of C. S. Desky In the city
and shows n plan for a right of way
thirty feet from the tram car terminus
In Nuuanti valley. Just nbove the Pauo.i
road, across to the terminus of the Pi
cine Heights electric line. Accompany
ing the map was n petition for the right
of wny. The Council did not see Its
wny clear to recommend this and ref jr.
red tho matter back to Mr. McCandlaas
for n further report.
Mr. Dcsky's Idea Is to run his line
over from the present terminus, ncrois
government land Just mnukn of tho
Pnuoa road. In this manner he would
be able to take passengers up Pacific
Heights Immediately upon their alight
ing from the Nuuanti street cars. In
this manner, passengers would lie spir
ed n walk of nearly a quarter of a in I to.
CLAUDINU NOT DAMAGED.
The steamer Claudlnc of the Wilder
line of steamers, was qulto l.ito In
rearhlng here on Saturday night, ant
brought n large number of passengers
nnd considerable freight.
The delay of the Bteampr wns oc
casioned by her grounding on the Man
ila Loa reef In Maalaca Hay. Thn
Claudlnc went on the reef nt o'clock
Saturday morning, nnd nftcr icmaln-
Ing there for several hours was pulled
off by the steamer Maul which was
summoned from Knhului for that pur
pose. The steamer suffered no damago
and as she lay at the wharf all .My
yesterday one would not realize that
only a few hours had elapsed since she
wns threatened with destruction. It
seems that this Is not tho first time
that vessels have touched on th'sreef
which Is looked upon ns nn exceedingly
dnngerous portion ot Maalaea Hay.
The schooner Twilight which only
left port last Saturday, returned again
to the harbor this morning, In a de
cidedly bad leaking condition. It will
be icmeiubered that she was passed
upon by a Hoard of Survey appointed
by Judgo Ksleo of the United Stntej
District Court, a short tlmu ago, and
uftcr the lepalis made by tho mincy-
o(s had been made, she was peiudtteil
to put to sea.
A Wslt to the vessel dlsoveie.l the
fact that she was leaking badly, hav
ing sprung a new leak In her recent
short vojnge. It has been found ne
cessary to keep the pumps constantly
going. Tho es3il Is very fuul from
hei loug iynge from Sail Frnr.r'scu to
Washington b.lainl. She is owned and
Instiled In San Francisco nnd tills
