I HIS WIFE
The Awful Deed of the
IN JEALOSY HE STABBED HER.
THE WOMAX WAS INSTANTLY
KILLED AND PTTUOE
Insane Act of a Han Who Was
Driven to Desperation by
Jaalousy of Woman.
Puueo, a native stevedore, shot,
and killed his wife, Naomi, and
then almost severed his head from his
body by means of a knife last night.
He, too, must die.
The shocking double tragedy took
place about 11 o'clock at the house of
3Irs. Paiko, an old lady for -whom Naomi
had been sewing, on Robello lane,
Palama. Puueo called at the house for
his wife and as soon as he saw her he
shot at her with a small revolver. The
woman screamed and fled. Puueo followed
her out of the house into the
yard and shot again. The bulet entered
the skull at the base of the Drain
and probably killed her instantly.
Crazed with grief and jealousy, the
man then stabbed the body in the
back as it lay in the yard.
He then gashed his throat, nearly
severing the head from the body. The
bodies laid close to each other, the
woman cold in death, the man breathing
laboriously. As he lay there,
he was clasping the dead body nf
his wife to him, in token of love.
About an hour after the terrib'e
deed the patrol wagon arrived .ind
took the man to the Queen's hospital.
Dr. McGrew examined the wound and
found It to be mortal. The man sank
fast and died at 3 o'clock, being conscious
until nearly the end.
As he was being put into the patrol
wagon he handed the deputy sheriff a
closely written letter. It was
to "The High Sheriff of the Hawaiian
Islands," and is substantially as follows:
"August 4, 1900.
"To the High Sheriff: Aloha ce.
You will be kind enough to make public
this big thing. I am taking my :ife
and the life of Xaomi because of great
love that can never die.
"When we left to come to this place
in September, 1SS9. v.-e were happy.
We have not lived as we should because
a certain person by the n.ime
Pooulani, on account of what he has
had to say about me, and for that
reason my mind has not been easy
until now. when I am doing this black
hearted piece of work. She ha since
been up to Mrs. Kaluna's quiltin;, but
still I have doubts, and for that reason
my mind has not been easy, and lor
that reason I have gone up to her and
with tears in my eyes because of my
great love for her. She laughed at me.
Finally she came home with me that
night, but was not the same. We slept
little. I was crying to her to stay with
me and not to leave me. Now we were
living all right until these yarns. Owing
to my great love for her it is better
that we should die. If all women
who carry tales would be killed u
would be a warning. Let each person
look to his own home and attend to
his own business, then there would be
no trouble in families.
"With these explanations I wish to
give mv aloha to the Christian religion
from Hawaii to Niihau, my aloha to
my friends on the wharfs. To my
great grandparents, to my children I
give great aloha. I ask the Christian
religion to save my soul so mat uou
will forgive me for this dark deed and
that my sins may not fall upon my
children. My tears are falling, my
heart is breaking. I am to die, but mv
"Aloha to my native land, to the
flower of the hinano. Good bye to the
sweet .music and the sun and stars.
"I would like to have all my letter
put into the newspapers so that women
will see and take warning what
Hioir ivinsr tnnsrues have lead me to do.

be buried together. I am writing this
with the tears running down my face.

United States Court Not to Compete
With. Territorial Courts, But
Will Enforce the
The United States court will be in
session tomorrow for the transaction
of any business that may come before
it. Among that business will be the
making of American citizens. This
court is nearest to the government, and
in naturalization cases it stands as preeminent
as any court can in priority
of right. It Is quite possible that Judge
Estee's court will enjoy most of the
naturalization business, since it will
make citizens at about one-third c
the cost of the Territorial courts, not
that it is cutting rates, but living up
to the law.
"Yes," said Judge Estee in front of
his delightful home in the Snow cottage,
inthe park of the Hawaiian hotel"
last night, my court will meet on
Wednesday. It will do so for no
special purpose, but for any business
that may come before us.
"Naturalization matters? Why certainly,
or any others," said the Judge.
"Fees for naturalization? I suppose!
they were well known. I have looked
over them recently and I have figured
that the cost will range from ?2.50 to
J2.S5 in each case. There will be no
need of a petition. The candidate for
citizenship must possess the qualifications
required by the Revised Statutes
of the United States.
"The Territorial stamp on papers of
citizenship? Oh, we know nothing hut
the United States law, and Territorial
stamps have nothing to do with it.
We shall naturalize people upon individual
application. They will need
neither attorney nor petition and the
fee is nominal, as I have said. It
would be less, but the declaration of
citizenshp becomes a judgment and
must be entered. Each candidate must
have two witnesses, you know, anJ
that means something, too."
These facts, which are of the
importance, considering that an
applicant for American citizenship can
save ?5 by forsaking the Territorial
Supreme Court by simply walking into
the United States Court, on the first
There is a larger and more patriotic
matter involved, however. It is understood,
so The Republican is reliably
informed, that Judge Estee will insist
that applicants for citizenship shall
coinplv with the statutory laws of the
United States, which require, among
other things, that the applicant shall
be able to lead and write the English
language. Hawaiian, Greek or other
accomplishment will not help applicants.
This may startle even members
of the Supreme Court, who have accepted
the law admitting the Territory
to the Union, which provides the admission
of those capable of reading
and writing the English or Hawaiian
languages. As a "law of adrIssion"
that is recognized, but not for other
purposes the newcomers must write
and speak the English language.
