INTERSTATE COMMERCE LAW
There were some flroworks Inter
jected into the meeting of the .Mer-'
chants" Association yesterduy after.,
noon In the discussion ovor the ex
tension of the Interstate commerce
laws to the steamship lines ot Ila-'
wall, some ot the talk taking a per
sonal turn and L. A. Thurston being
accused ot starting tho whole propo
sition In order that the Inter-Island
should be under tho same laws as
tho Hllo railway.
The proposal to extend the laws
cecured only three votes, represent
ing the IIII6 railway and the Adver
tiser., Tlie discussion came up over tho
Introduction ot a resolution by Mc
luerny, seconded by Macfarlane,
which read; ''a is the sense ot tho

fact that the Inter-Island had paid
out good money to support the Vol
cano House tor years and that the
Mauna Kea was as comfortable, to
travel on as the Mongolia.
Touching on rate regulation,
Thurston said It was a mania In the
States and had been tor years, but
that It was much better to be regu
lated by a national commission than
hy a local one. The railroads had

In closing, Thurston urged tho as
sociation not to slap Cougress In the
ta:e by this resolution, and urged
that It bo not adopted.
Mr, McLean made a long address
thoroughly covering the topic. He
held that the application of the In

only, would be nn unjust dlscrlmliiu-

Man Fires Fatal Shots Aricti
Makes Escape In Nuuamr
Probably Inspired by tho murder,
and suicide that occurred yesterday
morning, but lacking the nerve to
take hla own life, lien Kulana shot
the woman he had been living with
and then turned tall and ran rur cov
er In the mountains. The shooting
took place at ten minutes of six tills
morning up at tho Nuunnu dam, and
the woman who wus shot Is numed
Julia Davis Kololou.
According to the statements of eye
witnesses, Julia Davis Kololou was
seen npproachlng the house where
Kulana lived. The pair bad separat
ed a few duys ago, and the man had
promised to let the woman have her
clothing It she called lor it. The
woman upon arriving at the dam
this morning was' nlrnld to co"aIoife
to Knlanaa house, so she asked two
other women nained Keobo and Alice,
to accompany her. A watchman
named Itiiymoiid nlso went along.
As soon as Kutana's house was
reached the owner emerged and rush
ing ut Julia dragged hor Into tho
bouse unit begnn to beat her over
the bead with u stick. Tho other
three people tried to prevent the as
sault, but Kuluna then became en
raged andt drawing n revolver threat
ened to shoot the women then and
there. Ilaymond nnd the two women
beenmc alarmed and they ran from
tho hoMso and summoned help. A
