STORY of quite
turn came to
town from Hawaii
It is a tale
3 tf of love and
liquor and a pistol, of a deserted
husband, a faithless wife, a jealous
paramour, and an outside wooer.
The time of the most exciting incident
was Saturday evening last
and the place was Honokaa, where
Jos. Marsden was at one time leader
of the village orchestra. J. H.
Truschler took a shot at John
Kiser. It was a miss. Truschler
was excited and Kiser was running.
J. H. Truschler left Honolulu
about a month ago. Besides taking
along a cobbler's outfit he had
another man's wife. The husband
thus wronged is a soldier at the
barracks. He is a very worthy
Eort ot a man ami has the sympathy
of all who know of the affair.
His married daughter remains in
the city. Se feels keenly the blow
that has fallen on the family. The
husband is a barber and follows
his calling at the post.
The deserted husband said yesterday
that hiB wife took with her
about $400 of his money. He had
eaved $700 up to a few months ago.
To quiet his wife he turned the
entire sum over to her. She had
disposed of $300 of it before going
away with Truschler. The latter
for a long time had a 6mall shop
on Fort street, mauka of Hotel.
He was a drinking man and never
did very well. He was the woman's
advisor when the husband sought
legal redress. hen th6 courts
failed to give satisfaction
prevented a reconciliation that
friends were arranging for man and
There was a party at the
Honokaa house laEt Saturday
night. Drinkables were served and
everybody had a good time. At
the windup the furniture was
chucked about in rough fashion.
Truschler and Kiser had a few
words about this. Before that they
had indulged in a spat over the
favor of the woman.
When Truschler began abusing
Kiser about the furniture the latter
stood his ground. The woman
tried to calm Truschler and made
a sign to Kiser to leave to avoid
trouble. This was on the lanai.
Truschler became greatly enraged.
After cursing and threatening he,
went inside for a pistol. Kiser
started away at double-quick when
Truschler appeared with the weap
on. The shot whizzed past his
head and made him put on more
The Advertiser's informant says
the details of the affair are known
all over the district, but that the
police appear to be unable to get at
the facts. The officers are making
an investigation. Kiser, who is a
teamster, was asked to make a
complaint in court against
He declined to do this.
A BIG JUDGMENT SATISFIED.
The Timely Appearance of a Check
Stops a Land Sale.
S. M. Damon, as Trustee for
Colonel Sam Norri3, handed Deputy
Marshal Brown a check for 15.584.15
Wednesday to satisfy an execution.
The property belonging to Mr.
Norris was to be sold at auction at
noon unless the money was paid in
before the honr. The check was presented
about ten minutes before
twelve so the sale of the Kahuku
Banch did not take place.
The judgment against Colonel
2sorris was obtained by Mrs. de
Herblay, of New York, after a legal
contest that lasted for over four
years in the courts of this country.
It is said that the. original claim was
for $4000; interest, court costs, and
attorneys commissions, swelled it to
the amount of the judgment.
The German cruiser Falke has
visited Savaii for tbe purpose of
warning the disaffected chiefs there.
The captain of the cruiser sent ashore
a pinnace and an invitation to the
rebel cciefs to visit the Falke. It
took them 21 hours of thinking before
tbe warriors could see their way
clear to accept tbe proffered

ality of the German naval officer. A
number of loyal chiefs had at once
gone off to the cruiser, bnt not so the
others, who probably suspected that
the German intended to spirit them
away to sojourn with their ex-colleague
Mataafa in the Marshall
Islands. Captain Yon Moltke, of the
Falke, was evenhially favorcJ with a
visit from the ex-scalp hunters or
"head cutters" as they were described
in a recent fight. He administered a
wholesome lesson to them, laying
stress especially upon the foolish
statement alleged to have emanated
from Tamasese that in a little while
the rebels would receive German
support. Notwithstanding the captain's
warning it was current in Apia
the clay the Mariposa sailed that the
rebel cause is spreading. Despite
this condition of native affairs the

ICE taste was displayed
in one feature
of the suicide
of Mr. Matsumotu.
He was found
hanging by the
neck in Fowler's
6 a. m. The man
used a handsome
black silk sash for
a line. He passed
a over his head and made
fast the double end to a plank.
Fowler's yard is otherwise known
as the Mechanics' Home. It is
located near the corner of Nuuanu
and Hotel, with entrances from
both streets. Matsumotu was not
a guest of the lodging house. He
simply took the liberty of trespassing
and taking his life on the
premises. The proprietor is much
vexed over the affair, but has no
recourse. Matsumotu did not leave
any rich relatives.
This Japanese came to Hawaii
as a contract laborer in 1891. He
Eerved his time on a Kauai plantation
and was booked to return to
his own country by the Nanshan,

amounted to $70 and he had the
money in the Yokohama Specie
For a week or more Matsumotu
has been at Ewa. He was in love
with a Japanese girl at the big
plantation. A rival or relative
drove him away. He came to
town and laid himself out to drink
all the saki in sight. He was
doing very well for one small man
when a particularly vicious dose of

Matsumotu made his headquarters
at one of the many Japanese
hotels on Smith street. He was
about the place a couple of hours
Wednesday evening and was acting
like a crazy man.
Fowler yard people told the police
of the hanging and Capt. Scott
brought the body to the station.
An inquest was helii at noon.
Four witnesses were examined by
the coroner s jury, one of whom was
the landlord of the place where the
deceased lived. He stated that the
last time he saw Matsumotu alive
was on Tuesday night about ten
o'clock. He appeared to be feeling
badly because he had no money
with which to return home.
The watchman at Fowler's yard
related how he discovered the body
hanging from the stairway.
Dr. Cooper stated that he had examined
the body; he stripped it
and made a careful examination for
any marks of violence but did not
find an'. He saw a discoloration
which completely encircled the
neck, and caused by a silk sash,
in one end of which a slip noose
had been made and was still tightly
drawn around the neck when the
examination was made. The doctor
concluded his remarks by stating
that death was undoubtedly
caused by strangulation.
The jury brought in a verdict of

Collector Wise of San Francisco Is After

Operations Detailed 80O Tons

OS'N BEN, who is
on the reef here for
handling opium off
the Australia, is
mentioned in San
llllll Francisco papers
as one of the tools
of a powerful ring. H. C. Foss, a
clerk on the Oceanic dock at the
Coast, is given prominence as one
of the main men of the combination.
The Federal authorities have
asked his employers to remove
Early in October, says the San
Francisco Call, Collector Wiss wrote
a letter to John D. Spreckels asking
him to dismiss certain of his employees,
whom the agent of the
Government has good reason to believe
are smuggling. The letter is
still unanswered and the employees
whose names and offenses were
given in it are still on the payroll
The Collector is at a loss to explain
the situation and just before
leaving the city, October 25th, for a
trip to San Diego, sent another
epistle to Mr. Sprecklee. If this
latter communication does not have
the deBired effect Mr. Wise will see
what can be accomplished by a
Among the persons who were
named as suspects when the Collector
wrote were employees on the
Oceanic dock and members of the
crew of the Australia.
Their plan of operation at present,
according to the Call, is to have the
opium Bhipped as merchandise in
transit from Victoria to Honolulu
or to some Central American port.
The packages come to San Francisco
and it is alleged their contents
are changed while in the
hands of the suspects. The opium
is removed and the boxes are
stuffed with trash and sent on to a
member of the ring at Honolulu or
some other port.
It will be remembered that eight
hundred tins of opium shipped
from Victoria as books for a priest
of Honolulu were seized several
months ago and are still in the
custody of the United States Marshal
of California. The seizure was
made before the opium could be
removed and books substituted.
What will become of the drug is a
question that is puzzling the authorities.
It cannot be sent on to Honolulu,
for the importation of opium
is forbidden by the new Republic.
It is now known beyond question
that it belonged to the Emerald
ring. Greenewald, one of the Emeralds,
who is now serving a sentence
of six years in the penitentiary,
has given Attorney Riordan
power to sue the Government for
the drug, and the case will be tried
early next term.
While Mr. Spreckels has taken
his time for answering the Collector's
letter, there is reason to believe
that he has not ignored its contents.
The San Francisco customs people
fear that they will be compelled
to give back the eight hundred tins,
as a claim ha3 been made for it. If
it be decided that the authorities
had no right to seize the opium
they will send it on to Honolulu
and let the customs officials here
take what action they please. Of
course they will seize the stuff.

Ancient Use of Petroleum.
As a remedial agent petroleum was
known to the ancients by whom it was
considered a sovereign remedy.
Literature on the Subject.
It is only within recent years that the
properties of petroleum have been dis
cussed through the medical journals.
Articles have appeared and given, in
very positive language, the moat gratifying
results from its use, both as medicine
and as a reconstructive. Great value is
attributed to petroleum in the treatment
of consumption, bronchitis, la grippe,
catarrh, asthma, diseases of the digestive
apparatus and of tbe kidneys, as well
as in wasting diseases. It appears to have
especial value in all pulmonary
Former Drawbacks to Its Use.
The reason why petroleum has not
been more general in use is due to tbe
fact that, in its unpurified state, it has
nauseating and irritating properties.
After exhaustive experiments Angier'a
Petroleum Emulsion was secured. It is
deprived cf all objectionable features
while retaining the valuable medicinal
qualities, and is acceptable to both
palate and stomach.
Petroleum Emulsion vs. Cod
All who have ever tried Cod Liver Oil
know what a nauseating dose it is. It is
impossible to disguise the disagreeable
taste and odor of the Oil. The palate
and stomach revolt against it.
Every Mother Loves
To see her children strong and healthy.
If the little ones are troubled with
coughs, croup, or are thin and puny, or
have any wasting disease, they can be
brought back to health by Angier's
Emulsion. Children will take it readily
who resist taking Cod Liver Oil.
It Saved My Life.
"Six months aga, I was told by three
physicians that I had quick consumption.
I was coughing badly, had hemorrhages
and profuse night sweats.I was
away. I tried Cod Liver Oil, but could
not retain it. Angier's Petroleum Emulsion
was then prescribed. It agreed with
me perfectly. I then weighed 102 pounds.
Now after taking it 6 months I weigh 1G1
pounds. I consider myself cured and attribute
it all to Angier's Petroleum Emulsion.

Petroleum Emulsion a trial. Have you any
