Chapter of Accidents.
The police were called yesterday to
quell a large-sized disturbance iu a
Palama tenement, in which several
soldiers, including William Miller, and
a Hawaiian, John K. Kaltmapehu, were
j involved. The Hawaiian was sent to
( the hospital with a serious cut over
lone eye, caused, it is alleged, by Mill
j er, whp, as a member of the party, at-
icmptea 10 iaKe a nana in a ianiuy
altercation between the Hawaiian and
his wife. A ten-gallon keg of beer ev
idently proved the incentive for the
affray. This was in process of being
consumed by the party when trouble
loomed upon the horizon. Miller was
placed under arrest, pending the re
sult of the injuries to the Hawaiian.

appeared on the scene. The man suc

assigned as the cause of the disturb

'Henry Steward was sent to the hos

injuries sustained in being run down

to have deliberately stepped In front

WAil.l'Kr. Oct. t Miss Louise
Pratt does not seem to be gaining as
rapidly as her friends hoped she

is of a decidedly serious nature. It is
suspected that the brain is affected.
Further details of the affair and
Miss Pratt's own words about the ac
cident when her mind is rational seem
to show that the horse was frightened
at a pile of chips by the side of the
road along which Miss lratt was driv

foremost. After the accident the horse
did not seem to be frightened, but
was found only a little beyond where
the event took place, calmly eating
cane leaves. S. Hocking, head luna
of the Paia section, was the man who
found her as he was going his usual

a way that the wheels of the depart

James Fisher, the young man ar
rested lat June by the U. S. marshal
and suspected of complicity with Nor
man B. Smith in smuggling opium in
to the Territory, entered a plea of
guilty this morninc to the ODium
I smuggling charge. He will be sen
tenced by U. S. District Judge dem
ons tomorrow morning.
Although a tin of the contraband
stuff was found in his suitcase when
it was seized by the customs officials
at the Wells Fargo express office in
June, Fisher steadfastly asserted his
innocence, also declining to make any
defense further than to say he did
not know how the drug happened to
be in his possession. The hearing,
finally set for the October term in
Federal court, was called last week,
and a jury obtained after two days'
work in trie selection of its members.
The actual hearing of evidence was to
begin this morning, but was checked
