While boarding tlio steamship Am

9 o'clock this morning, Nakamira To
radza, a Japanese, slipped from the
rail and fell headlong on the deck,
striking his head on the sharp corner
of a trunk and Instantly breaking hit
The chief ofrtcer of the steamship
witnessed the accident as did many
Oriental patsengers on the after main
deck of the America Maru and numer
ous stevedores, passengers and offi
cials on the wharf. The ship's sur
geon was Immediately summoned anil
made an examination. Ho found that
Toradza had broken two of the ver
tebrae of the neck and had fractured
the Bkull over the left eye. The coro
ner was at once telephoned for and the
body, which was placed under a tar
paulin on the after hatch while wait

Nakamura Toradza was about 33
jeaiH of age and had been In this coun
try a little over two and a half years,
ns a laborer on a sugar plantation on
this Island. He was going homo to
Japan, had procured his ticket' and.
with one small article of baggage and
a number of bottles of soda water "on
a string, was stepping aboard the ves
sel which was to take him to Yokoha
ma when he missed his footing and
met a sudden death.
Following the' accident there was
much excited talk among the Japan
ese steerage passengers as to where
the responsibility for their fellow
countryman's death was to be placed.
It Is usual for the Oriental steerage
passengers to be put aboard In a great
hurijy. There are generally n large
number of them and they require con
siderable attention from (he ofllcers of
the vessel, as there Is always a scram
ble In the showing of tickets nnd the
getting aboard of baggage.
When the Japanese began to gp
aboard this mornlng.a broad gangway
was lard from the wharf to the rnll of
the vessel near the after hatch. At
first, theie was no way for Intending
passengers to alight on the main deck
r from the gangway where It rested on
' the rail, except for them to Jump down
three or four feet.
Toradza was evidently In a hurry to
go aboard for he rushed up the gang
way and started to spring to tho deck.
The chief officer shouted to him and to
others who were following to stay
where they were until boxes were
procured to form steps from the rail
to the deck. Toradza either failed to
understand, although the order of tho
chief officer was Interpreted by a Ja
panese quartermaster, or else Ignored
the warning, for, with both hands full
of Ills baggage, he jumped. He was
hampered by his baggage, however,
nnd fell as above reported, breaking
Witnesses other than Japanese pas
sengers, say that no one could possibly
be blamed for tho nccldent as Toradza
ought to have waited until the boxes
had been arranged on tho deck.

fortunate man was still breathing, -although
he expired within a minute or

This morning. Chief Justice Frear
reported to High Sheriff Drown that
his place on Tantalus bad been entered

Judge Frear was up on Tantalus.

One of the windows had been smashed,

"The past year has been noteworthy

tho year, with a prospect of 'material
reductions in expense the ensuing
year. Ho goes into details of about
fifteen reservoirs having storage -a-paclty
of 481 1-2 million gallons. Tin
reservoirs cover 115 acres of land. A
contract has been let to build addi
tional reservoirs at a cost of $50,000,
which will Increase the storage of wa
ter by 450 million gallons. Tho rain

Ject of irrigation the manager con-
'With tho reservoirs now arranged
for and in process of construction we
will have a total capacity of 935 mil

fident expectation that we will bo prac

any ordinary year; though they will
always be very valuable as a safeguard
against unusually dry weather."
Manager Stodart says the crop of
1900-1901 amounted to 33S9 tons of
sugar, exceeding tho estimate by S3
tons. The crop now being harvested
he estimates at 8458 tons. That for
1903 Is placed at 12.111 tons and. with

had reached 94.07 per cent.

Every member of the Fourth District

for the purpose of attending to the Im

to run on the Republican side and until
