Death of a Japanese Has
Excited the Officers

SAID TO BE RESPONSIBLE
LURID PICTURE DRAWN IN HER
ALD'S ACCOUNT CORONER'S
JURY FINDS VERY LIT
TLE OF VALUE.
Hllo, July 31. What appears at first
glance as a case of murder as the re'
suit or a conspiracy occurred some
time during Friday last and was re'
ported to the police about 8:30 In the
evening. The story reads as much like,
a romance as one of facta, for It seems
almost Impossible to realize that such a
condition of affairs could exist outside
the boundaries of a brigand camp, In
On lower Front street Is a building
occupied as a hotel and managed by
Funakoshl, a gambler and a slave own
er. Ho has had the hotel but a few
weeks, the former proprietor having
deserted the place months ago. The
hotel 1b -a. resort fur disreputable char
acters, among them Watenabe, an um
pire at Japanese wrestling matches;
UsblJIma und Seo, gamblers from Ho
nolulu, and these men act as lieuten
ants for Funakoshl. I Ucsldes a wlfo
this latter has two and possibly three
mistresses, who are said to contribute
toward his support. Stories are told
that Japanese laborers from planta
tions stop In Hllo to wait for the Klnau
to take them to Honolulu to catch tho
steamer for Japan, and before they can
get aboard the Klnau this gang of
thugs relieves them of their money
and sometimes beats them. It Is said
also that they havo levied blackmail
In a systematic manner upon merchants
of their nationality, and when tho
amount has not been forthcoming the
merchants have been beaten.
The man found dead on Friday was
Moto Illro, a reputable carpenter, and
one who had saved from his earnings
considerable money. He fell In lovo
with ono of Funakoshl's mistresses and
a demand was made upon him for mon-

willing to part company with the wo
man for a valuable consideration,
Thursday last was to have been set
tling day and Moto Illro was to band
over $700, but he did not materialize.
Thursday night he' retired to sleep 'In
his cottage back of Hata's store, which
is on front street. At l a. m. no was
awakened by two Japanese knocking
on his door. He was taken by them to
Funakoshl's hotel, whero ho was con-1
rromed by sixteen Japanese, most oc
them thugs and gamblers.
Hero he was surrounded and a de
mand made upon blm for $1000, which
he steadfastly refused to pay,

the men assaulted him and he was tak
en to a room and locked In. At 8 a.
m. llata'a brother began a search,
which ended at Funakoshl's. Here he
was told that Moto Illro had been
found In a room with a woman and
damages bad been demanded and thit
Moto Illro had been locked In the room
with the woman and given time to con
sider. Hata's brother was allowel to
see Moto Illro, and when he was
shown into the room Moto Illro weak
from punishment and unable to do
much talking. He complained of being
hungry and said that they would not
let him hare anything to eat.
Soon afterward the story of Moto
Hlro'a trouble was spread among the
Japanese carpenters, and they at onro
decided to raise the money to pay the
ransom. By night time they had secur
ed $300, and when one. of the men wait
ed on Funakoshl It was discovered that
Moto Illro was dead.
When the police reached the room
Moto Illro was found with two stub
wounds in the neck, and lying under
bis arm was the knife with which the
deed was done. On tho floor two Ja
panese swords were lying. To tho
police It was said by some men in the
place that the murdered man had been
found In the room with the woman In
the case and that the swords had been
given them by which they might take
their lives In true Japanese style. 'The
woman also stated that she had been
caught In the room with Moto Illro.
All the occupants of the hotel were tak
en to the Jail and locked In solitary
conment and were not allowed to see
anyone. "On Saturday some-attorneys
were asked to look after their Inter
ests, but the Sheriff declined to permit
them to see the prisoners until a for
mal charge was made against them.
On Monday a demand was made upon
tho Sheriff and the matter was argued
In tho District Court. It was not tlnlsh
cd by 6 p. m and an adjournment was
taken until Wednesday.
Among the Japanese residents there
Is no desire shown to give out to tho
public more than vague Information;
they admit that they are In dread of
the men and that trouble will como to
them In tho event of the prisoners be
ing released. They say that other mur
ders will follow this cane If the men
are not prosecuted. Some of them say
Hint they nave had to take beatings
becauso they refused to pay the amount
of blackmail. Of the prisoners Vshl
Jlma and Seo came here, from Ilono
lulu about four mouths ago. Funako
Bhl and Watenabe havo resided here
longer. The latter Is a typical 'strong

an Investigation by the Coroner's Jury,

Among the passengers who passed
through this port yesterday In tho
Miowora bound from the Colonics for
Van.'O'ivcr was the Earl of Hopctoun,
who until recently was the Governor
Geneinl of the Commonwealth of Aus
tralia. Tho return from Australia Is a sad
Journey for the Earl. He came to
that country with his heart filled with
high Ideals and lofty ambitions, and
now returns to his estates In Scotland
after seeing his dreams vanlBb Into
Tho main cause for bin resignation
was the refusal of tho Hoime of Repre
sentatives to accede to his request for
an allowance larger than the 10,000
which he was receiving, Tho Earl
realized that this Bum was far too
small to allow him to pay the enor
mous expenses which tho dignity of
his high office demanded.
The way fn which the refusal" was
made probably also had something to
do with tho resignation of the Govern
or General. Tho Sydney Mall aptly
describes the situation as follows;
"Thero Is no doubt that Australia
cannot afford to pay ber Governor Gen
eral at tho rato of 26,000 a year. It
is equally certain that Lord Hopctoun,
who always treated all Australians
courteously, should not havo been
slighted by a public refusal of his ro
quest for a largor allowance for tho
great expenses ho had to Incur. 'Man
ners,' says Emerson, 'are tho bappj
way of doing things.' The members of
the House of Representatives chose an
unhappy way of discussing tho Gov
ernor General's salary, and therefore
lacked good manners. The public was
determined that Lord Hopetoun's last
hours In Mcluourno should be made
In his farewell letter, 1-ord Hope
toun expressed his views very clearly,
Passages from this document follow:
"I hail dreamed my dreams. I bad
formed my ambitions as to your Govern
or General's position, and as to the
manner in which he could best serve
the Empire and the Commonwealth
However mistaken those ambitions

perHpectlvo time may havo proved
these dreams to be, I cannot feel
aBhamed of having Indulged my fancy

which my apparel has reached the pub

complain of tho mannei In which It

some to whom It may havo appeared a

transaction was delivered on the date
mentioned and the fourth semiannual
interest payment on the samo became
due and payable July 1, 1902, and wai
on August 1, 1902, duly presented.
Payment was refused.
The petition further alleges that no
part of the Interest has been paid ex
cent $2.95, on February 20, and $1,947
on May 18, 1901, both being a part ot
the principal, and $800 on January 18,

deed of assignment convey and assign
to tho plaintiff herein tho Indenture
of mortgage In tho sum of $130,000 and
did on that day endorse and deliver
the note for that amount.
The plaintiff claims that, according
iu iu u-ruis oi uio mortgage, ine alleg
ed violation In the non-payment of tho
wholo Interest, constitutes a violation
of tho terms which permits of a fore
