ot rain fell In Wulluku today. Indica

the midst of another heavy downpour.
Previous to last Monday there was
no damage reported, but during Tues
day night there was a general down
pour throughout Maul, Makawao and
Kula districts, more especially. On
Wednesday morning It woo reported
that the new bridge at Kahulul was
carried away during tho night, but It
turned out to be a hackman's hoax,!
only, nnd was intended to Induce people
to take a ride to Kahulul, The bridge!
was not carried away but the loose
earth around aud under the stone wall!
supporting the bridge was carried
away bo that the bridge sank down n'
foot or so,
The same trouble was experienced!
by the railroad tracks of the Kahulul

As Punishment for Re

SHERIFF REMITTED THE
MONEY TO HIGH SHERIFF
Trouble Over Fines of Certain Prison
ers at January Term of
Circuit Court in
IIIlo, Mar. 7. The matter of the ci
tation of Sheriff L, A. Andrews to show
cause why he should not be held in
contempt for disobeying an order of
court came up before Judgo Little last
Monday. The Court reviewed the caso
at length and went Into the law of the
case with equal thoroughness, finding
tho Sheriff guilty and setting Thursday
morning ut ll o'clock as tho tlmo to
Impose the sentence of cither fine or
Urlelly the record of the case shows
that at the January term prisoners
were duly convicted by Juries and sen
tenced to ray fines "into the hands of
the cleric of this court" and that they
"ntand committed until fines and costs
aro paid." Tho Sheriff, L. A. Andrew,
refused to comply with the sentence
of the Court, by refusing to pay tho
lines and costs to tho clerk, whereupon
the Court Issued an order as follows:
"It Is hereby ordered by tho Court
that the fines, costs aud forfeitures ot
all persons convicted of crime in this
court, shall be paid to the clerk of thli
couit, who shall glvo a receipt theie
for; which receipt shall balance tho
Sheriff's books In lieu of the tines,
costs and forfeitures aforesaid, and
that no persons shall be relieved from
custody of the Sheriff until the money
has been properly paid Into the hands
ot the clerk of this court."
In e jil to of this order Sheriff An
drews did not pay the said fines to tho
clerk of the Fourth District Court, but
remitted the monies direct to the High
Sheriff at Honolulu. At a hearing bo
fore Judge Little, February 23. Sheriff
Andrews confessed to having disobeyed
the order of the court but plead justi
fication by reason of an order from
High Sheriff Drown and Attorney Gen
eral Dolo to remit said fines direct to
The conclusions of law by the Court
are as follows:
"That the Legislature never Intend-'
cd its language used In Sec. 29 of Actl
39 to deprive the clerk of this court j
of tho proper functions of his office, i
but that It did Intend, and should bo
construed, to mean that he or tho
Sheriff for htm should collect nil funds
under judgments, sentences, or orders
as well as fines and forfeitures when
directed so to do by the court and turn
them over at once to tho clerk and
that the clerk of this court and not the
sheriff Is the "Public Accountant" for
the court, as contemplated by the sta
tute. "That tho act was not Intended to
disturb, disquiet and obstruct Justlco
nnd judicial government nnd proceed
ings such as tho conduct of the defen
dant would produco it permitted with

appoint n Sheriff for the Court, the

For Beverat days, carriages, wagons,
etc., could not cross the juncture of the
Kahulul road leading to Kula and Ma
kawao. Tho Makawao dairyman who
furnishes Walluku with milk could not
come across, and Walluku and vicinity
went without milk for three days.
When tho storm was at Its height
last Wednesday, the several membeis
of tho Walluku Road Board were on
hand at Kahulul personally superin
tending a gang of workmen, trying to
save the new bridge at Kahulul, and
their efforts wero not In vain, for the
bridge was saved, although It sank
down scernl feet, Hon ever, the ex
pense of repairing It has been reduced
to a minimum by the activity and
alertness ot the Walluku Road Hoard.
Hoad Supervisor Dan Quill was dis
patched to see If the new Maalaca road
was damaged at alt, and by nightfall
this official returned and made the re
port to headquarters that the damago
If any, would nmount to nbout $3.
The Maalaca road has just been put
into excellent condition and Its com
pletion was not any too soon as proved
by this storm, for the road withstood
tho fury of the elements for the past
nine days. The Olownlu roads fared
worse than Walluku. The bridge at
Olowalu was also carried away, which
means an expense of several thousand
dollars to replace It. The waters o.
Iao stream have risen and no one can
get over the first crossing. Those living
above It find nccess to town by walk
ing across the Walluku Sugar Com
pany's largo Iron water pipe. Both the
waterheads at Kalanl-auwal and Kn-ma-auwal
have been washed off and If
will take a largo forro of men several
days to put these watcrhcado In con
dition ngnln. None of the government
water pipes have been damaged to any
perceptible extent, and Superintendent
Bal has enough water in th ereservolr
to supply the town for several days In
caso of an emergency
the Court's orders to the exclusion ot
every other authority while so acting.
' "That neither tho High Sheriff nor
the Attorney dcncral nor the Auditor
General have any control ocr th
Sheriff of Hawaii while acting for tha
Court or for the Clerk of this Court.
"That Sec. 79 of tho Organic Act
gives no power to the High Sheriff to
interfere with or otherwise obstruct
the proceeding of court In the transac
tion of public business or to deflect the
course of any proceeding or incident
thereto Into other or different chan
nels than that directed by the Court.
"That tho defendant having shown
no Justification tar his disobedience ot
the orders of this Court, and the court
being fully advised, finds tho defen
dant. Lorrln A. Andrews, Sheriff ot
Hawaii, guilty of contempt In falling
and refusing to comply with tho order
of this Court, made and entered Janu
ary 29, 1902."
Thursday morning at 9 o'clock, Sher
iff Andrew's appeared before Judge
Little to receive sentence for contempt,
The Cout In view of tho peculiar rela
tions of the officer beforo his bar mado
the sentence as mild as possible con
sidering the gravity of the offense. Thu
Sheriff was fined 1100.
The act of the Sheilff which the
Court held to bo In contempt was a re
fusal to obey an order of the Court
The order directed that nil lines, for
feitures and costs in cases In the
Fourth Circuit Court bo paid Into tho
hands of th eclerk of that court. Sher
iff Andrews paid no attention to tha
order but remitted monies direct to

MATHEMATICS OF DRAW POKER.
The delightful uncertainty of the
great American gamo of draw poker Is
very clearly indicated by David A.
Curtis In a book Just Issued entitled
"The Science of Draw l'okcr." The
work deals largely with flie mathema
tical possibilities of the game, figured
out from a deck of cards with nil tho
possible combinations in the park.
The new beginner may And dlscour
agement In the author's axiom that un
less a player Is familiar with the ma
thematical sequence of possibilities ho
cannot hope to take every advantage
of tho cards dealt him, Inasmuch as he
follows It up with a declaration that
from the deck of fifty-two cards 2,-
108,000 combinations may be obtained.
Continuing the mathematical analy
sis further, Mr. Curtis llgures out the

HIlo, March 7. Walanuenuc street
Is the principal street In HIlo. It is
paved from tho waterfront to tho HIlo
Hospital on tho hill, where tho thor-
oughfare changes from a street to a
country road and continues Its paved
way up to Kallmann, I,ast Tuesday
at 2 o'clock p. m, Henry VIvars of tho
Economic Shoo Company crossed the
street to havo a few words with De
mosthenes the Caterer, who holds
forth opposite. Before tho shoeman
could recross tho street to his place of
business, ho was compelled to tele
phone n clerk to bring him a pair of
hip rubber boots. Tho clerk donned
a pair of the high water rubbers, slung
nnother pair across his shoulder and
waded across a rushing torrent and
safely conveyed his employer home.
Thnt Is bow- quickly tho main stieet
of HIlo became Impassable last Tues
day. It had been raining a little. The
rain gauge at WalaUea showed a pre
cipitation ot a fraction of an Inch last
Saturday morning. Sunday morning
nnother fraction. Monday morning It
registered 1.07 Inches. Tuesday morn
ing the torrential figure of 7 75 Inches
was reported. Wednesday morning It
wns 9.81 Inches.
Most of this Intter measurement of
wnter fell Tuesday between 7 a. m. nnd
4 p. m. At a little before 2 o'clock tho
flood, which had been side tracked at
tho head of Walanuenuc Btreet, refus
cd to longer obey orders. It wanted a
straight cut to tho sea and took a
header down tho boulevard. It ripped
up the macadam, and rolled It sea

and truo to tho Arknnsas spirit which
has been bo diligently cultivated by
the Department of Public Works, the
storm found HIlo s roof unrepaired, A
conservamo estimate of the cost of
making Wnlantienuo street as good as
ll wns n weak ngo Is J1000. Less than
half this expended before the rain
wouiu have averted the damage. Tho
ounce of prevention was about to bo
realized In tho work that had com.
menced at tho head of Wnlamirnue
street under tho assurance from Ho
nolulu thnt there would be $10,000 Im
mediately available for road improve
ment In this district. The work was
progressing when notice was received
from Honolulu that tho funds were not
available. Tho men wero accordingly
discharged by tho Road Board. A few
prisoners havo been for somo time en
gnged In constructing a culvert and a
big trench or sufficient capacity to ill
vert a flood from tho street to Wnlluku
river. The unfinished state of this
work allowed Hllo's main street to be
again rendered Imnassable.
The flood played havoc ngnln along
iiiu tuursu ot mo waioiama stream.
Tho culvert put In on Front street nt
Hnckfcld's lumber ynrd, where tno
dnmnge wns done at a previous flood
was too small to carry nwav tho nent
up wntcrs. A little nfter noon Tues
day It was seen that the imprisoned
waters would burst through some
where. Accordingly a force of men
wero ordered to cut n tiench beyond
tho culvert. Boforo they had proceed
ed fnr, tho water broke through on
oiiher side of tho culvert. At day.
break Wednesday morning there wns

and many houses In that region lug.
gcd at their moorings like the ships In
the bay. A house near tho road, be
longing to C. Aknl, was loosened from
Its foundation and carried to within n
few feet of tho crevasse In tho grade.
A protecting wall hnd been put In

prevented tha flood from making se
