Hero of -Russo-Japanese War

from Honolulu
Famous throughout the world for his
deeds of ? daring ? during the V Russo
Japanese war, but unknown in Hono
lulu when he shipped from here as a
common sailor before the mast, Louis
Spltter, noted blockade-runner, died at
sea on ; the ' bark Foohng Suey whliej

waiian sugar around the Horn.
Spitrer was well-known to many peo
ple living In Honolulu, but none pf

ognized in him the gentleman adven
turer who was probably the last of 'the
American privlteer skipper. Not un
til the Foohng Suey arrived at New
York 136 days from Mahukona, did
the news come out (that an abscure
forecastle band who died at sea was
the daredevil Spltier. The Foohnje
Suey arrived about October 6, having
sailed from Mahukona on May 1;. And

"Here It Comes," Said Bryan,
and He and Curator Stokes
Feel Its Pulse
"Here comes an earthquake," said
W. A. Bryan of the College of Ha
waii, quite calmly yesterday morning
at . twelve minutes to six o'clock;
"Let's have a look at it."
Professor Bryan and John F. G.
Stokes, curator of the Bishop . Mu
seum, were spending Saturday night
at the hitter's cottage at Kailua on
this island. Saturday night they had
been sitting up talking about thejwme homes there was a rattling of
temblors, and when Bryan, who was
lying awake early yesterday, heard
a rumbling and a sputtering as if
some hoarse telephone was out ci
order deep down in the infernal re
gions, he knew what was coming and
got ready to observe the symptoms.
They had been sleeping with their
heads to the north and feet to the
south and Mr. Bryan said today that
the earthquake travelled along fromi
the direction of Hawaii and Maui.
The rumbling grew louder and loud
er and then came the earth-waves.
The cottage trembled, and so did the
dishes in it. However, the two sci
entists were too busy to tremble-

From the grave nature of the story

that the several business organiza

may. take the matter up with a view
of learning something definite con

At l is post literally until the ; hour
when "iath calli him from a life
p pent in his country's service, Major
John H. Wholley, Second lurntry,iU.
S. . A., commandant of Fort Shaft er,
was stricken with heart failure last
Saturday afternoon and died within; a
few minutes. Death ' occurred shortly
after four o'clock and Father Ulrich,
of the Roman Catholic Mission, who
had come to visit the commandant
and was with him when the attack of
acute heart disease came upon him,
administered the rites of the church
when it was apparent that the com
mandant was breathing his last.
For some weeks Major Wholley has
been confined to his home and lately
to his room by the results of a hard
attack of bronchitis which he con
tracted about a month after his ar
rival In Hawaii. From this attack he
i:ever fully recovered, and although
he was able to take part in the man
euvers last May during the vlsii of
the Inspector-General, his health de
clined during the summer and hid
strength gradually left him. Though
weakened in body, the commandant
never: gave up work and all day Sat
urday he was busy with matters . of
post administration, receiving re
ports, signing documents and carry
ing out the many duties that devolv
ed upon him. He was working a
large part of the afternoon and was
In good spirits. Major Kennedy,
medical officer, called upon him and
found him quite cheerful. However,
it was evident that his condition was
serious and Father Ulrich was sent
for by Mrs. Wholley to come and visit
the Major. They were talking In the
Major's room when suddenly he
caught his breath and said, between
gasps, that he felt faint. Medical aid
could do nothing for the major, who
died within a few moments.
The news of Major Wholley's death
was a shock not only to army circles
but to the many friends in civilian
life that Major and Mrs. Wholley
