WITCHCRAFT 0F TODAY" :
Honolhni corre'spontie-ne'e- of "Bur

the t nited State other 'thaTi Jfawnii
would it be possible for witchcraft to
exist, or is supposed to exiMt7ind the
fact that it is but a few (lays ago that
a Hawaiian woman was legally con
victed and fined for: the practice- of
sorccrj-, will come as-, a 'Kitrprixe, if
not a shock, -to the American jieo-
ple. ':.'; v
Kahunaism, which is the native
name for witchcraft, has long -been
exiKtarit in the -.islands, and ven the
utmost efforts o-f th missionaries to
stamp out the practice for nearly a
eentorv' lrns -proven an utter -failure.
S'flmily-rooted in the minJs'of tlie
'natives hn the priictloe iiecoine, thai
the legislature attempted at its first
sensitHi to legalize the witch doctors
as- practitioners of medicine. :- t
In marry -parts of the ' islands no
other physlc.iau than a kahuna wuli
their her U com pounds, are .ealled ii
cases of sickness, and the faith in
their powers has 'tiot abated in th"
slightest because of their -'failure to
prove the effie.ey- of the "medicine.
The case in point occurred at Wailu
ku. ih the inland ;f Maui, lnt week,
when a knhuna, after a legal trial ami
conviction before 'the district magis
trate, was line:! $125 and costs. There
is still upon the stalute books of the
territory a law prohibiting the prac
tice of witchcraft, anaana, hoopiopio.
etc.. all of which are native names for
the same thingj This statute provides
that "any person wln Khali attempt
the cure of another by -the practice of
sorcery, witchcraft auaana, hoopio
pio. hooiinansiuna. htiomanamaita. or
other superstitious, or deceitful meth
od, shall, upon conviction thereof,
before a district magistrate, be fined
in a sum not less than $10O nor more
than $200, or be imprisoned at hard
labor for not to exceed six months. '
According to the story told in court,
in March, Kanohkokuahiwi and his
two sons. Kola ni and Kaiianut, were
taken sick at their resilience near
Waihee, Maul, and Xean. a kaliun.i
woman witch doctor of some note in
the district, was ealled in to care for
them. In a couple of weeks Kalani.
one of the sons, died and, according
to- the story told to the court, h
mewed like cat . just before he
breathed his last. Xeau, the kahuna,
hearing of this feature of the case,
attributed the boy's death to his con
nection with the killing of a cat be
longing to her own grandchild, and
added the direful prediction that all
persons w ho had been in any -way
connected with the killing1 of the cat
would surely die. By a singular co
incidence the deceased boy had as
sisted in the execution of the cnt, and
the father and remaining son, who
were also sick, had assisted him in
doing1 away with -the lo1hersome fe
In spite of this the wife of the sick i
man went to the kahuna 'again and
asked that she use her magic powers
to cure the husband ami son. After
much solicitation and promises of re
ward, Xeau, the kahuna, agreed to in
voke the spirits to aid her, lint ad
mitted that in view of the enormity
of the crime which had been com
mitted by the sick men, the task
would be an extremely difficult one.
.She buckled down to tlu work, and
a pig was "iinied" (sacrificed) an.l
eaten, with all the mysterious rites
ii nd incantations of Wahiueaea and
other aumnkuas'. This brought no
cure for the sick men, and a second
and third, and finally a fourth pig,
was eaten with the same in vsteriou.-
rites, but all to, no purpose, anil both
the father and second son died.
Then the widow, satisfied that the
kahuna had' been instrumental in
praying ber husbands and sons to
death, had Xeau arrested for prac
ticing witchcraft contrary to law.
Xeau, an aged and wrinkled Haiwaii
an woman, was a perfect picture of
Macbeth'.s witch as she appeared in
court. The . jilting, forehead, bright
eyes and witch-like features were
added to by a cone-shaped hat, mak
ing the resemblance more, perfect
than any stage "realism could give it.
The' relatives of the deceased: men
testified in court that they" had been
present and assisted in the incanta
tions of the kahuna. They told of
the long midnight vigil wdth its mys
terious rites, and called upon the
spirits for aid, and how in spite of
it all both father and son died. The
witnesses expressed the belief that
the kahuna hud caused the death of
the two men, at least by her incan
tations and because she was angry
for their connection with the killing
of her granddaughter', s est. Xeau
made no defense admitting that she
did practice kahunaism, but claiming
that she had attempted to save the
lives of the men, and their great crime
had made the spirits deny her appeal.
Deputy Sheriff. SafTery appeared for
the prosecution "and the woman con
ducted her oyn defense. Judge Mc
Kay, before whom she was trieil.
found the woman guilty - of witch
craft, as charged, and imposed a fine
of $125 and costs. ...
On the other islands similar cases
of kahunaism have been reported
within the past few months, but this
is the first legal cognizance of the
statute, and while the law has never
been repealed,' it was the general Im
pression that enforcement of the stat
ute against witchcraft - had ceaseJ.
In,- Honolulu a few weekj. ago a Ha
waiian was sent to an insane asylum,
claiming that kahunas were, pursuing
him and attempting to. takw his wife

under his new contract, he can do by
the city even better than was the
rase last season, when he was seri

which he had no control.
"Uock Island has treated me fair

Mr. Donnelly stated he had several

Looks Like Peace
President M. H. Sexton, of the
Three-I and Western leagues, yester
day afternoon received a letter from
President Powers, of the Xational
Association of .Minor Leugiies con
tabling news that is giving hiin con
siderable satisfaction. The letter
states that both the Xational and the
American leagues have consented to
participate in the general conference
to be held under the auspices of the
Xational association at the Victoria
hotel in Xew York City Oct. 2:s.
President Sexton thinks that it nov
looks as though every professional
baseball organization in the coiintr,
will le represented , at the meeting
and he has every reason to hope that
the peace that has lieen so earnestly
desired in the baseball world for the
past two seasons is now in sight. The
Xational and American leagues have
steadily refused to send delegates t;
the conference, and it is only through
the united efforts of the officials of
the minor leagues that thev have fi-
nallv consented to do so.

Or at Leant K very one Wbo Suffers From
Caiarrh in its various forms is a
ual disease, and the fact that
nearly everybody siitTers from it
more or less leads many to neglect its
Xasal catarrh is a common cause of
headaches, destroys sense of smell,
nnd if neglected readies the throat,
causing impairment and sometimes
total loss of voice. Bronchial catarrh
leads easily to consumption. Catarrh
of stomach ami liver are very serious
and obstinate troubles, while it is
now generally admitted that catarrh
is the most common of all causes of
lea f n ess.
All the more serious forms of ca
tarrh begin with nasal catarrh, the
local symptoms being a profuse dis
charge, stoppage cf nostrils irriia
tion and freipieiit clearing of the
throat, sneezing, coughing and gag-g'UfT-
The old style of treatment with
douches, inhalers, sprays, salves, etc.,
simply gives temporary relief, and ev
eryone who has used any of them
knows how useless they are and their
inconvenience is such that very few
have the time or patience to con
tinue their use.
A radical cure of catarrh can only
be obtained from a treatment which
removes the catarrhal taint from the
blood, because no one will now dis
pute that catarrh is a constitutional
or blood ilisease, and local applica
tions can have no effect except to
temporarily relieve local symptoms.
A new remedy which has been re
markably successful in curing ca
tarrh is pleasant tasting tablet
which is taken internally and acta
upon the blood and mucous mem
branes. ft is composed of antiseptic rem
edies like red gum, blood root and
similar cleansing specifics which
eliminate the catarrhal poison from
The tablets being pleasant to the
taste are dissolved in the month and
thus reach the throat, traehae and
finally the stomach and entire ali
meutary canal. They are sold by
druggists everywhere under the name
of Stuart's Catarrh Tablets.
If desired,' when there is lunch
stoppage of the nose, the tablet may
be dissolved in warm water sintl used
as a douche in addition to internal
use, but a douche is not at all neces
sary. A few dissolved in the mouth
daily will be sufficient. Dr. Ainslee
The regular daily use of
Stuart's Catarrh Tablets taken inter
nally will cure the whole catarrhal
trouble without resorting to the in
convenience of a douche or an in
haler." They seem to give a healthy tone
to the whole mucous membrane and
it is'really remarkable how soon they
will clear the head and throat -of the
unnatural and poisonous catarrhal
secretion. . .
Stuart's Catarrh Tablets is un
doubtedly the safest, most palatable
and certainly the most efficient ' and
convenient remedy for any form of
