RAIN LANDS HUNDREDS
NEAR THE LIGHTHOUSE
Batrachians Have Been Disappearing
Due to Strenuous Efforts
of Young Brothers
and the Cat
Ever slnco the flood of Tuesday,
when Nuuanu stream overflowed Its
banks and swept In a raging torrent
down to the harbor, the little Island
near tho lighthouse on which tho
Young brothers have their home, has
been Infested with hundreds and hun
dreds of frogs.
The frollcsomo and pcsttfcroui
green-backs on the morning Immedi
ately following tho flood swarmed on
tho verandas of the little frame houso
on Young's island and It was their
united and prodigious croaking which
aroused tho brothers from their com-
tortnblo couches at an unusual and un
One of the brothers, hearing tho
peculiar noise, as of a host of auto
matic cash registers out of order,
hastily arose, donning his nether gar
ments, and proceeded on a tour of In
vestigation. No sooner had he opened the door
and stepped, barefooted, onto the
veranda, than his feet came In violent
and slippery contact with a couple ot
big specimens of the frog family. The
brother said something appropriate to
the occasion and called the rest ot the

"What aro they?" asked one of tin
"Krogs. of courso," said the dis
coverer of their noisome presence.
"When camo they?" was the newt
question, as tho speaker put on a
heavy pair of top boots, not caring to
squash promiscuous frogs In his trip
out on the vcrenda.
"I suppose they were washed down
by tho flood yesterday," was the logical
Just then, the frogs seemed Inclined
to enter In at the open door, the pet
cat of tho Young brothers sailed In
among tho slimy beasts nnd clawed
right and left, catching several ol the
frogs In her Jaws. Tho versatile fellni
made n good breakfast and then quit
tho Job, so that the Young hrother
were forced to get brooms and shovels
to knock the remainder of Nuuanu's
refugees from tho veranda.
Swarms of frogs were noticed on
the little Island. They had hopped Into

Assistant District Attorney Dunt.i
yesterday filed a motion for a new trial
In tho case of the United States vs. the
Honolulu riantatlon Company. The
motion Is to be presented beforu Judge
Estce next Wednesday.
In the assignment of crrora It Is
stated that tho evidence Is wholly lu
sutuclent to Justify tho crdlct, In that
there Is no evidence to support the
finding that tho market value of the
leasehold Interest Is ot the sum of
$94,000, or nny sum in excess of $T5,
000. In support of thjs Is tr.nched an
affidavit showing the Judgment of tho
court after the first trial to hare been
$75,000 In full for all damages of cve.'y
kind. For tho same reason It 13 al
leged that there was no evidence to
Justify tho finding of the Jury of lUm
ages In the amount of $8523.
It Is further alleged that tho valua
tion of the Jury was a mens spocula
tlvo olie, and that Jury gavo undue nnJ
excessive weight to the expert tcstt
mony introduced by said defendant.
The plaintiff alleges that the court
erred In allowing the testimony rela
tive to the mill upon the plantation,
and In allowing some of the questions
asked by defendant of the experts.
Mr. Dunne nlso sets out the fact of
tho first trial, the subsequent order of
Judge Estce in granting a new trial,
upon the refusal ot the defendant to
ncccpt a cut to $76,000, the amount
fixed by the court. He says further
that the evidence In the two cases was
substantially tho same; that but few
additional witnesses wcro called, and
upon tho samo pleadings nnd tl)e samo
state of facts, the verdict Bhould not
havo been nbovo the sum ot $73,000, the
Judgment In the first trial.

The remnant of tho old whaler will

the fire left enough of the wreck to
prove a menace to navigation.
The Progress, when In the whaling
industry, was famed as n lucky ship.
She was built In Westerly, 11. I., in
1843, and was christened the William

Tho frogs hnye been gradually dis
