A Young Girl's

man, who has been meeting hundreds of
people here at cor. King opp. fishmarket
relative to the prevalence of a queer
disease here notable, that of internal
parasites or tape worms, hns aroused
much interest and comment.
Oue young woman brought io to the
B. B. C. man a tapeworm that measur
ed probably forty feet in length. She
said:

the delicacy of the matter, will I allow
my name to le published in connection
sritk this matter, liut I will aay that I
have suffered for years from what 1

gnawing pain in the pit of my stomach
which tormented me. I xueined to lie

have fits of temper which I could not

sleep became a stranger to me. This
was further complicated by pains in my

CUfJHA ONLY A TOOL,
OFFICIALS THINK
Stories Told' Concerning Postof
fice Thefts May Absolve Him
? From Guilty Complicity
Tosng Frank Cunhs became involved
In the post off) eS robbery of which Harry
Melim, the former night utility post
office elerk la accused, by merely act
lag aa tke agent In disposing of a piece
of platinum, think federal authorities,
whs have beard the stories of the two
young mas.
According tov United States Attor
ney. S. C. Huber, both Can ha and Mellm
tall ike same story ss to Cunha't im
plication, which maty think will prove
kiav to have been entirely innocent.
Cunba, the officials say. was np
rroaehed by Mellm ori TVcemher 24,
mo days after tke prlselpal parcel post
'heft at the postnfflc. and atked what
tha platinum was which Mellm now is
reported as having admitted he took
from a package addressed to H. F.
Wlekman ft Company.
"It looks like platinum." Cunhs
la said to have replied, the fnct that
ha was at oae time employed In the
Counter Jewelry store giving him this
knowledge.
- Mellm is then reported tn have ask
ed Cunka to dlspoaaof the ore, explain
ing, It la said, ih the presence of st
least one witness, tkat it had been
Hven to him bv a Chinnman on one of
the vessels calling here, to be sold
After tkia explanation. Pimha is ro
ported to have agTeed to dispose of
the platinum aad took it to Arthur H
tvhre manufacturing jeweler with
whom he formerly worked nt the Coun
ter jewelry store, and offered it for
sale. ,
When Mykre inquired how much wns
wanted for tke metal. Cunhs is ni '
to have replied that Melim had fixed
the price at seventy-five dollars, but
Myhre wrote out S check payable to
Mellm for eighty dollars. Following
tba depositing of the check to Melim V
tceount, Cunha admits that he wa
given a "tip" of tea dollars and was
surprised at what he thonght was a
large amount for the services render
ed.
"This ia practically the story told
Sv both Melim aad Cunhs regarding
Cnnba's part in the tale of the plati
num," said Attorney Hnber on Tues
day, the day when warrants were is
"ied for botfj Melim and Cunha. Melim
la now. nt liberty on "k $1000 bond and
"nnha'on a bond of $500. I
Fearing evidently that the platinum
night not have come lecnllv into the
.possession' of Melim before be purchaq
'l it. Myhre is said to have gone to
he Honolulu postofflee a few days af
er buying It and inquired if there had
'en any report of the loss of a pack
age containing platinom, At the time
" report had been received of the
theft and he was eaiwered in the
negative.
Tba piece sf platinum ia about as
'hick as a half dollar and about two
T three inches in sire, The real value
tf this piece of platinum is said to be
360.
Inquiry Causae Arrest
It Wss Myhre 's lnqtrlry regarding the
Possible loss of tome 'platinum which
so speedily led to the apprehension of
Melim. This followed the complaint
if Merle Johnson of WSchman A Com
pany about the missing platinum, which
It had been established had been sent
iere unregistered from San Francisco.
, William Peterson, acting postmaster,
asys the report that tbere had been
'oases from tke registry department at.
tke postofflee was a mistake and that no
-egistered valunbtrs had been lost
dnce J. K. Higgins was convicted late
'nst year of robbing this department
f the local poatoffice. for which he
as sentenced to five years' imprison
ment. "All the losses recently have been
from parcel post packages and from
ipecial delivery envelopes," he says.
"Reports of missing sums of money
'ad packages have been most frequent
luring the last three or four montht,"
e adda.
The acting postmaster says that sev
eral of the special delivery envelopes
ere found in Melim 'a roem, and that
ha hat admitted abstracting small
iust of monev from them.
It may develop, as tba investigation
ontinuei the authorities think, that
Melim had hit upon a system of taking
articles from parcel post packages,
then reseating the packages and leaving
hem In the mail. There hsve been
reports of packages received which were
refi'v tied up, but which contain
ed nothing more than wrapping paper
Then received by the persons to whom
iddreaaed.
It w-os r-,vovd by the investigation
of the postoftice robbery yesterday
'hat Cunha waf still In the possession
it the receipt yiven by Melim to Myhre
or the eiphty dollars paid for the
datinuro.
When the receipt ws first written
it was for "eighty dollar obeck receiv
ed". This rc-eipt was returned to
Mybre who nt first accepted it, but af
r a Couple of ('VP is said to have
ommuntcated with Cunha anil asked
Mm a pet Melim to write "for plati
num" upon the receipt.
, This Cunha is snid to have agreed to
'0. kut when the receipt was found
n bis possession by I'nlted States Mar
shal Smiddv. he explained he had never
been able to catch Melim and get the
'hange made, which Mvhre wanted.
The. passing of the check and the ro
eipt occurred nearly two months and
half ago,
Cunha said last night that the receipt
wss signed, "Chang, by Melim", the
Chang presumably referring to the fic
ticious Chinsmun of whom Melim claim
ed to have gotten the precious piece of
metal.
He said alao that at the time Myhre
was first shown the platinum, he nss
sent back to Mellm a second time to
ascertain where the metal had been se
cured. Cunha tayt it was Myhre who
insisted on bis going back to Mellm to
ask this question. Before this, Cunha
asserts, he asked Melim if he was sure
it badnt been stolen by the Chinamun.
Mellm, ba said, gave a positive answer
tkat it had not been stolen.
10 HIGH SCHOOL
HOLDS ITS TRYOOTS
....
Big Island Athletes Selected For
Interscholastic Track Meet
Here On March 23
Including Prewcott Ah Foo, the train
er, ten Hilo High School athletes will
come to Honolulu to take part In the
big Interscholastic track meet to be
held on Saturday. March 2.1, at Alex
ander Field, Punahou.
The following done on the Hilo ath
letes is from the Post Herald of last
Saturday:
"High School athletes who are train
ing for the Interscholastic meet in Ho
nolula, March 2.1, had their final try
out yesterday afternoon at Moohenit
Park. Due to the henvy kona which
was blowing at the time, and to the
fact that the runners had to face it
for part of their run, the time made by
the boys was considered very (nod
indeed, the best run having been in
the mile try-out, which Milton Mc
Nichols made in 6:08.
" 'I fully expect McNichols to make
that mile in five minutes before we
have left Hilo,' said Trainer Prescott
Ah Foo. 'Naturally, running against,
the wind at he was at the Park yes
terdny, he could not do his best. Never
thcless, McNichols made his mile in
jutt five minutes and eight seconds.'

Take Control at Ones
The new owners will take control at
once. Graham, it is understood, will be
president of the club, and will in all
probability put on a uniform and take
rctive management of the Seals on the
playing field. He will also have charge
of the signing and release of all play
ers. Grnhnm is one of the most widely
known baseball men in the West. He
first achieved fame as captain of the
fenious pennant-winning Tacnmn Tigers
of 1!)14 nnd IOCS, during the regime of
Mike Fisher us a Const league mag
nate. Subsequently he went to the
Boston Reil Sox as a catcher, and on
his return to the Coast went Into busi
ness in Sacramento. There he was One
of the owners of the Coast league
franchise, he and Bill Curtin keeping
the club alive during several trying
ves rs.
Wheal Within Wheel
It wss through the efforts of Ora
lism that John I. Taylor of the Boston
Americans was Induced to iaveat in the
Sacramento club, which for S couple of
seasons was a Red Sox farm. Mainly
through the efforts of Graham the
Const league was induced to place the
Portland franchise in Sacramento this
wesson, snd Grahnm is even now secre

Maeratnento Bee. He belongs to an old
and wealthy Sacramento family and is
in a position to make a substantial In
vestment in the ball club.
If the deal ia closed Graham will at
once undertake the reorganisation of
the Seals. Reulir.ing that men must be
obtained to build the club up to its
1917 strength, Graham will at once
open negotiations with major league
clubs and obtain options on likely
players.
Such contracts as Henry Berry has
made will naturally bind the new own
ers. The Seals will train at Fresno,
and Jerry Downs will be retained as
captain, even though Graham might
himself ho the bench manager. Put
nam will be iccretary and have charge
of the club a business affairs.
