In a private letter, dated September
5tb, from a well-known resident of
Kau, Hawaii, the following accurate
information regarding the attempt of
the captain of the steamer W. G. Hall
to land passengers and freight at
ports, is contained:
"The Hall arrived at Punaluu this
morning with freight and passengers,
but Deputy Sheriff Williams telephoned
over from Hilo not to allow
any passengers or freight tobe landed.
By the time his message arrived at
Punaluu, all the passengers had been
landed on the wharf. They were,
however, refused permission to leave
"When the Deputy Sheriff heard
passengers had been landed he ordered
William Yates, his deputy in
Kau, to have them sent on board the
Hall again, and in case of resistance
being offered, to use force.
"The Deputy Sheriff sent the following
note to Captain Simerson:
Punaluu, Sept 5, 1S95.
Captain SixEKSON,on board steamer
W. G. Hall.
Dear Sib: According to strict
orders of G. H. Williams, Deputy
Sheriffof Hawaii, I hereby notify you
that it is his orders that you will not
land any passengers or freight on the
island of Hawaii.
W. J. Yates,
Deputy Sheriff for Kau.
"It seems that a mass meeting of
citizens had been held at Hilo Court
House September 4th. A committee
Lad been appointed to confer with the
agent of the Board of Health in regard
to the landing of passengers and
freight on the island of Hawaii. They
concluded to allow nothing but the
mail to land.
"The same committee met this
morning with the agent of the Board
of Health in the Sheriff's office in Hilo.
Deputy Sheriff Williams' action in not
allowing the Hall to land anything
duc me mail was iuuy endorsed.
"The passengers made a most terrific
kick, bat concluded to go aboard
again, as there was no other alternative.
"Xearly everybody, except the
planters, back Williams in tbe stand
he has taken. Tbe report from Hilo
is that if .the planters try to land any
freight or" passengers from Honolulu
the citizens will meet them half-way
witb rifles. If tbe planters do attempt
anything it will have to be with
"Had tbe passengers from the Hall
landed and gone to the volcano, there
would have been a guard put on tbe
road from Hilo to the volcano and nobody
from tliis side would have been
allowed to go to Hilo. We would in
that case have been in quarantine.
"The citizens are red hot aaiut
the Board of Health forsending up the
Chinamen from tbe quarantine station.
I understand from good authority
that the Kilauea Hou landed the
Chinamen before the physician received
his instructions from the
Board of Health. Tbe people say, bad
they known thev were to be landed
along the Hamakua coast, they would
have stopped them, and that on a very
short notice too.
"A guard is to be put on at Kahuku
ranch to stop all communication between
this and tte Kona district, as
the Hall landed freight all along the
coast on her way up. A passenger or
two were lauded also.
"The Hilo planters have chartered
the steamer Hawaii. She will leave
tomorrow morning for Kauai and the
windward 6lde of Oahu in search of
rice, etc. She expects to get eupplies
from either Kauai or Koolau, Oahu.
The plantations have enough provisions
to last them from two to three
"Planters on the other side are
writing by this mail to their agents
and will have them charter a steamer
in Sau Francisco. She can come direct
to Hilo with a load of sunnlies.
"The new telephone line from here
through Kona is now within two
miles of Hookena, and Lakalo, the
Deputy-Sheriff, telephoned this morning
that they were to hold a mass
meeting of the people from all the
districts and send a petition to tbe
Government asking them not to allow
any more passengers or freight to be
landed in Kona. The Sheriff's orders
are not to allow tbe Hall to land any
freight on her way down."
Kau (Hawaii), Sept. 6 The Hall
arrived at Punaluu at 6:30 o'clock
this morning with tourist passengers
and freight, the former taken direct
from the Australia without landing
in Honolulu, but notwithstanding
this fact and that the Hall herself
bad not been alongside tbe wharf in
Honolulu or any of her crew having
been ashore and carrying a clean bill of
health from the Board of Health, imperative
orders in compliance with
the wishes of the Hilo people was
telephoned over that passengers and
freight should not be allowed to be
Jut ashore, the passengers were
to reach and laud on the wharf
and a conference took place on the
telephone between Dr. Capron and
Deputy Sheriff Yates of Kau on the
one side and Sheriff Williams of Hilo
on the other, the former gentleman
putting the fact before Mr. Williams
that as the Hall had left Honolulu
with a clean bill of health, that the
passengers had been transferred direct
from the Australia without touching
shore and that Captain Gimerson car-
rled a permit from the Board of
Health to land passengers and freight,
there could be no danger in putting
the same ashore, but no arguments
could prevail against the stolidity
of Williams whose only reply to all
arguments was that nobody nor nothing
was to be allowed to land and on
learning that the tourists were on the
wharf he gave an emphatic order that
they be ordered into the boat and if
resistance was offered that force
should be used to compel them to
Some rather emphatic language
was used during the conversation on
the wire, such as "d n the Board
of Health, we can run this island
ourselves and will do it," and it was
plainly developed that Hilo has
reached a stage of panic
Amongst other things that were said
was that if the Hall landed freight,
Kau would be quarantined.
If this farce of quarantining a
healthy vessel is kept up, we in Kau
shall soon be in a state of famine,
there is about one week's supply of
provisions on hand and when that is
gone there is nothing but starvation
tO fllC 6 US
It is said that tho steamer Hawaii
is chartered by Hilo planters to go
look for rice round the islands, but
there is little comfort in this as it Is
not likely she can gather enough to
serve all the plantations.
There are many rumors around as
to what the Hilo people have threatened
to do under certain circumstances,
such as, if any attempt was
made to land in Hilo from any vessel
coming from Honolulu armed resistance
would be made and that if it had
been known that the Belgic
were to be landed by tie Kilauea
Hou at the different plantations, that
an army of Hiloites would nave Deen
detailed to resist such landing. Taken
altogether it can be said that Hilo
people are in a very dangerous state
of panic in which they are not capable
of thinking of anybody's rights
but their own, in fact they seem not
capable of thinking at ail but are
wholly carried away by the impulse
of their panic stricken nerves.
PRECAUTIOUS AT L AH A IN A.
Another Meeting of Citizens Ob
ject to Landing Chinese.
Lahaina (Maui), Sept. 5. Wednesday
morning, August 2Sth, a call
was circulated for a citizens' meeting
to be held in the Lahaina court house
at 7 o'clock in the evening. Judge
Kahaulelio was In tbe chair. In the
absence of Mr. Nabaolelua, John
Richardson was chosen Interpreter.
The chairman stated that the meeting
was called for the purpose of ascertaining
the news regarding the cholera.
A letter from W. O. Smith to
Dr. Davidson was read by the secretary.
It stated that there had been
six definite cases of cholera in Honolulu,
live proving fatal; but that there
had not been a new case for three
days at the time the letter was written.
The secretary also read a letter
from Cecil Brown to F. H. Hayselden
stating that one condition on which
the Mokolii had been allowed to go
out was that there was to be no
mingling of the crew with the people
on snore, it was noted in tne discussion
that no orders to that effect had
been received at. Lahaina and that tbe
condition bad not been observed here.
Tbe secretary then read a letter from
Sheriff Andrews to Deputy-Sheriff
Baldwin, saying that tbe action of
Dr. Davison in refusing to allow the
freight of tbe Kaala to be landed at
Lahaina had met with general approval.
Mr. Hayselden reported that the
services of the committee appointed at
tbe last meeting bad been accepted by
the agents of the Board of Health,
and that they had been at work. Mr.
Baldwin spoke appreciatively of the
work done by tne committee. As it
was generally conceded that the work
to be done was entirely too great for
six men to accomplish, fourteen more
were appointeu to worn under tne direction
of Dr. Davison. The meeting
then adjourned subject to thecall of
Considerable indignation Is felt at
Lahaina at the manner in which the
Board of Health seems to have trifled
with the matter of quarantine. Provisions
and feed are brought from
In whale boats, because the Hall
is commanded not to carry freight between
ports here lest the disease be
spread by tbe sailors, who left Honolulu
a week ago. Yet Chinamen are
landed at Kahulul by sailors who left
Honolulu much later. This seems to
need an explanatiou. If the Board
had given the people the benefit of the
doubt and kept the Chinamen away
till the contagion was beyond dfiubt,
they would have avoided a numbfir of
unpleasant remarks. .
Unhappy Kan District.
A correspondent writing from
Kau states that unless provisions
arrive Boon there will be a famine.
The residents of the district do not
approve of Deputy Sheriff Williams'
action. The writer also states
mat llilo people threaten to put
guards at the Volcano Houee if
Kau does not cut off communication
In a recent letter to the manufacturers,
Mr. W. F. Benjamin, editor of
the Spectator, EuBhford, N. Y., saya:
"It may be a pleasure to yon to know
the high esteem in which Chamberlain's
medicines are held by the people
of your own state, where they
must be best known. An annt of
mine, who resides at Dexter, Iowa,
was about to visit me a few years
since, and before leaving home wrote
me, asking if they were sold here,
stating if they were not she would
bring a quantity with her, as she did
not Jike to be without them." The
medicines referred to are Chamberlain's
Cough Eemedy, famous for its
cures of colds and croup; Chamberlain's
Pain Balm, for rheumatism,
lame back, pains in the 6ide and
chest; and Chamberlain's Cholera,
Colic and Diarrhoea Remedy, for
bowel complaints. These medicines
have been in constant use in Iowa
for almost a quarter of a centnry.
The people have learned that they
are articles of great worth and merit,
and unequaledby any other. They
are for sale here, by all dealers.
