story about the losses
of Miss Dwight caused consternation
in the office of the Bulletin and a representative
of that paper called on
Mrs. Dwight on Desha lane and badgered
her so that she went to bed
sick and last night could not be seen.
Mrs. Dwight, according to some of her
neighbors, stoutly upheld the Advertiser's
story, but would not show her
daughter's letter because of certain
personal matters about Mrs. Weather-red
which were Included In the test.
The Bulletin's comment on the story.

A Bulletin girl had a dollar.

She lent her the sack,
And got nothing back
But the usual Bulletin holler.
"The Advertiser this morning gives
a first-page preferred position to a
story on the alleged troubles of Miss
Bernlce Dwight, who has been travel

"The impression attempted by the
paper Is that some of the parents of
the young ladles have been to that
sheet and complained. These parents
and friends have not come to the Bul-d
letin office, nor have they made any
direct or Indirect complaint to this
paper. The Bulletin has received what
It believes to be thoroughly reliable
Information that the Advertiser sent
Its men In search of letters written by
Miss Dwight, and were refused by
Miss Dwight s parents.
"The letters received by this paper
from the young ladles of the Bulletin
party have all been published and
have Invariably spoken of the pleasant
time they were having. Letters
to parents of which the Bulletin has
any knowledge have been of the same
tenor. Miss Dwight has not written
the Bulletin a word regarding her
troubles or her pleasures. Her arrangements
for the trip were made exclusively
and personally with Mrs.
Weatherred. If Mrs. Weatherred borrowed
from her or other members of
the party. It amply justifies the Bul
letin In changing chaperones.
"While the Bulletin knows nothing
regarding Miss Dwight's plans, or
what she has written, this paper is
convinced that her failure to return
ahead of the party was not due as
intimated by the Advertiser to such
a shortage of funds that she did not
have the price of a telegram asking

Dwight's letter was written from

and Miss Dwight was sufficiently well
acquainted with his whereabouts to
send him an occasional postcard telling
of their movements.
"Had her desire to return home been
so marked as the morning paper sug
gests, she was not without friends In
a strange land.
"Miss Dwight, after this alleged
Portland letter was written, went
from Tacoma to Seattle with the
party. At Seattle, she met an old
friend and acquaintance In Riley H.
Allen, formerly living in Honolulu and
connected with the Bulletin. Again
was she near a friend who would
jgladly have given the price of a cablegram

and her desire to return home

Seattle some time wrote James
in enthusiastic terms of the
proposed trip to Alaska. Had this Information
been conveyed to the Bulle

would have been no Alaska trip and
Miss Dwight would have been brought
home then and there If she remained
with the Bulletin party.

were married on March 17, 1903. For
about eight months after rcarriage
John refused to live with Theresa.
Then they lived together for about
four months, but about March 22, 1904,
the husband went to Maul, leaving the
wife in Honolulu. Returning to Ho
nolulu he stayed a year, during which
he refused to live with Mrs. Gomes.
Then he went to California and his

steamer belonging to the Neva river

adjoining the Lletny Saol (summer

Government was receiving $600 a year

Colonel of gendarmes, who formerly

and boasts that he Is 'used to hanging
those blackguards;' a young official
delegated by the Department of Police,
a military Captain and an uncouth
looking lad of 19, who had volunteered

"On the large barge were placed the
three condemned, with a convoy of
100 soldiers. The steamer proceeded
down the Xeva in the direction of
Kronstadt. Its occupants were very
lively. The Colonel of gendarmes told
stories, the official asked for a piece o'f
the rope with which the prisoners were
hanged, because 'it brings luck at
cards; the hangman proudly declared
that he belonged to the Union of Russian
Men and that he delighted In
hanging revolutionaries, etc.
"At about 4 o'clock the steamer landed
at a spot called Ussy Noss (Fox's
Nose) on the Finnish coast, opposite
Kronstadt. The prisoners, surrounded
by the soldiers and followed by the
officials, marched to the place of exe
cution, about a mile and a half distant
from the landing place. They stopped
at a small square grass plot resembling
a tennis lawn. In the middle of this
the gallows were erected, and near It
was a little platform upon wheels.
The Colonel of gendarmes directed the

priest. A priest approached him and

priest took oft his cross and gave it
to the prisoner, who, holding It, fell
upon his knees and prayed earnestly
for a few minutes.

Impressed by NaumofTs dempanor.
When his prayer was ended the representative
of the Department of Police,
with marked courtesy, motioned
him toward the gallows with the remark:
'Please step this way.
"Obviously, It was Intended to confer
a privilege upon him by allowing
him to escape witnessing the agony of
his comrades by being hanged first.
Then followed a terrible interval, during

While the leases of the Makee Sugar
Company expired on May 1, 1907, the
company was given an extension of
occupancy to take off Its sugar cane
crop. The Government has never admitted
that this concession affected the
rents of the sub-tenants and yesterday
Acting Governor Instructed
the Land Commissioner to proceed
with their collection.
An exchange of lands between the
Government and the Makee Sugar
Company is still pending. By it the

and the Government secure. In exchange
for its lands conveyed, lands
equal In appraised value which It

It is likely that appraisers will soon

Four months' imprisonment and payment
of costs comprised the sentence
passed by Judge Iole on T. S. Choy
and No Sang Bong, the Korean man
and woman convicted of adultery
T. M. Harrison had asked the court
to be lenient on account of the un
sophisticated natures of defendants
and of the previous good record ho
claimed Choy owned.
Assistant District Attorney Dunne in
reply mentioned his possession of a
letter written by the woman to the
man. In which she made an attempt to
frame a story both should tell at their
trial, also admitting their mutual guilt.
He had been unable to produce the letter
at the trial, because the only man
who could have proved the signature;
had left the country. Furthermore, he
accused Choy of forgery and, answering
a challenging remark of counsel
for the defense, announced that Choy
would be prosecuted for that crime. As
to the plea of Ignorance, Choy's experience
as Interpreter In that court was
rather against It.
I. Mori, the Japanese merchant found
guilty of passing a counterfeit ten dollar
coin, was sentenced to hard labor
for one month, with a fine of $200
added. S. F. Chllllngworth had plead
ed for leniency for the defendant on
account of his poor health, producing
a certificate from Dr. "Ramus, of the
U. 5. H. M. S., to the effect that Mori's
condition was such that prolonged Imprisonment
would be fatal to him.
As announced yesterday, the trial of
Isabella Salamanca and J. Lulz
was set for that day. When the
case was called, a message was delivered
from F. E. Thompson, counsel
for defendants, requesting a continuance
until Friday as he was engaged
In a trial In the Circuit Court.
Judge Dole evinced displeasure at
such a motion being presented without
notice, as no other case was set for the
day. He directed A. O. Correa, the
attorney who made the motion by request
of Mr. Thompson, to notify the
firm of Thompson & Clemons that the
trial would proceed at two o'clock In
At that hour, however, the trial was
peremptorily set for 10 o'clock this

In the meantime It had been sug
gested that the trial of Goo Won Hoy

ground that the complaining witness,
Mrs. George D. Gear, would not be
here from California until Dec. 13. The
court declined to advance the case, its
originally set time being Dec. 16.
In this case the defendant Is alleged
to have mailed anonymous letters of
