children ran from the yard screaming In terror and pain, the scores of
little houses that border the winding read poured out hundreds of people.
Ten minutes from the time that Fernandez emptied his shot-gun, the scene
was a pandemonium, the wails of mothers, sisters and friends raising in a
chorus of horror that echoed up and down the valley for more than a

The man, one barrel of his gun
empty, did not falter In the task
he had set himself. Even before the
school yard had been deserted oy the

a' small house near the school that
has served as his home. He walked
through he little kitchen and into the
small dining-room. There he held the '

There was a little group of pani

morrow by Superintendent H. K. Bi
shop, of the department of public
works. It is underwood two or three
jontractors for thi .lportant job will

The figures will be based on the
remodelled plans, calling for a struc
ture of the original size contemplated
but with some of the rooms eliminat
ed. Contractors found that the orig
inal plans required an outlay of $115,
000 to 125.000. This was more than
the territory could pay, and the board
of supervisors refused to augment the
fund by taking the required additional
amount from the money belonging to
the city and county.
Very little material change has been
made in the original plans and speci
fications, however, the principal re
duction consisting in striking out
some of the elaborate interior finish
ings, leaving them ;or completion at

Breckons, in hi3 argument before the

concluded until late this afternoon.
The court's instructions probably will
be read then and the Jury will retire

For Merchants'
Messrs. Cur.:.: and Trent, the nom
inating committee of the Honolulu
Merchants' Association, were the busi
est men around toun this morning.
The cause of their activity makes
something of a story.
Nine directors of ihe association arc
elected annually, and they elect the
executive officers irom among them
selves. Last year a clean sweep was
made of the retii ing board entirely new
b'ood being elected to the directorate.
1 bis was the occasion for some adverse
cn'ticism, as a result of which the
nominating committee on the present
occasion, for tue annual election on
Thursday next, submitted to the mem
bership a list o: nominees containing
i ve holdover and four new names..
To the association membership in
general the slate would probably have
been satisfactory, but it nas turnea out
that the nominees were not all con-
t-Llted and some pt mem. ior outness
reasons, will not accept me nomina
tion. This fact has resulted in the
cancellation of the list and the hu t
1'ncr of the nominating committee to
hnd nine men that will consent in ad
fauce to serve.

Burnett-Dillingham Measure Is Reported Out of Conference
and Goes Back to Senate and House with Literacy Test
Provision Unchanged Hope of Future Legislation to Ex
cept Territory from Burden
Special Star-BullUn CableJ
WASHINGTON, Jan 17. The Burnett-Dillingham immigration bill has
been reported out of conference and g oes back to the senate and house with
,ts provisions practically unaltered. The friends of Hawaii have lost the
first round in the fight to get a special exception made m. favor of the
territory, to the clause providing fo r a literacy test. It is against custom
to permit such changes as suggested to be made in conference, and undoubt
edly the house will decline to make a ny afterat on now. It is hoped, how
ever, that at some future time legislation, exempting Hawaii from the oner
ous feature of the literacy test will be presented and passed by congress,
but there is little prospect of such leg islation passing at this session.
