THE ADVERTISER'S Si"!-WEEKLY
A anywhere in Honolulu alone it night 5 to
to be on the streets alone at night.
I'm afraid of the soldiers. . . ' V ',' '(
' The al)ove' statement was made to The Adver-;
tiser yesterday by a sensible, hard-headed woman,
who explained that her fear came ' from several
very unpleasant experiences. " ?
Tlie Advertiser does not for a moment believe
that for conditions such as thia woman says cxUfc,
and which it knows from other sources do exist,
the great majority of the men in khaki are respon
sible. We have found most of them gentlemanly,
mannerly, obliging and imbued -with the tnost pro
found respect for womanhood. It is the black
sheep among them who arc to blame. '
The army is like any other great organization
of men; the great majority of them are all right
but there are always a' few who by their actions
bring disgrace upon the rest. Those whose com
duct is exemplary' have to suffer' for the miscon
duct of the "black sheep." ' ' .,' Vf ;
The courtesy and .willingness to oblige that is
characteristic of most of the men who wear Uncle
Sum's uniform is particularly exemplified brv th
crowded street cars of the city. , It rarely', if ever,
happens that when a woman boards a crowded car
on which there are soldiers, they do not. promptly
rpring to their feet and offer her a seat., Which
is emphatically more than can be said for-our
citircn population, and especially for the Orien
tals. The latter rarely give up their seats, to
women, even to those of their own race.;;. A JK)r
dier always does. . ;'. .
So The Advertiser wishes the men of the army
to understand that it is rot indulging in any gen
eral criticism of them in calling attention to the
fact that there are those, in the army and stationed
on Oahu who have made the streets Unsafe jf of
lone women at night, cads who follow, and accost
women with the only object in. view which can
possibly explain such actions. :. . ' '
As before stated, most of .th soldiers are in 0
way responsible for these actions of the compara
tively few black sheep, yet upon them does, rest
the responsibility of putting a stop to all cause of
that score. .;'.! ,. .

but it is nevertheless plain that the municipal

when the voters elect a second time a man who

Only those acquainted with the inside play of
the San Francisco political game can understand
how it is possible for "Fiddler" Schmitz to become
associated a second time with the government of
the municipality. Schmitz was tlie head of tt graft
ing administration that fattened off the misfor
tunes of San Francisco immediately after the fire
of 1906.
He spent about half his abbreviated term in the
mayor's office and the other half in a cell in the
county jail. But he now returns to the city hall
in triumph as a member of a' labor-unionite board
of supervisors. Mayor Kolph is to be congratulat

The career of the desperado began
with the robbery of a store in Wai
mea at which time suspicions pointed
to him la aa much as it was le;ned
that he was an ex-convict ainl that the
robDery was cc:nmitted by someone
familiar with the store, and that he
was at the time an employe of the
store. Following this robbery, be set
forth on a reign of terror, holding up
whomitOtHer ho felt inclined, and aa the
snen of the community were away at
military maneuvers, there were no on
to interfere with his recklessness which
sent the community into hysterics.

inner man, and finally grew so sure of
Immunity from justice that he begau to
threaten the lives of certain member
of the community.
As I lit re wore but two policemen in
the district, it was impossible to round
him up successfully, so it was decided
best to have Deputy Sheriff Biekard of
Ilouokta to take his blood hound over
and put him u the trail of the raider,
Police wore also summoned from Hilo,
and together with a civilian guard
thoy vot his trail and afterVa search
of several hours, located tho fugitive
hiil'm;,' in the. roadside ditch.
The prisoner was brought to Hilo
and placed behind the burs where he
will have sufficient time in which to
rep'nt for his forgetfulnes. One -of
the strnngost things in connection with
the stoiy is that the people of Wai
men idiiiiild tolerate such conduct ' by
any man for sue h a lengthy period
without . romplaining to the police.
However, the fact that there were so
niHiiy of the men of the community off
to Oahu, ' It is more, than likely that
those at home were lost a little bit
dubious about getting too close to the
man.
Ou the day he was caught, it is said
that he had threatened to shoot three
people, including a lady from whom it
was said tbat he bad taken an auto
mobile, but which developed to be
mistake. - That he was captured In time
to prevent murder is the belief of the
