Porto Rican Used Knife When Genera1 Mix-up Starts
Woman Wounded On Shoulder Two Men (iashed
Police Break Up"fcll.
Ono woman slashed ; two men
gashed; one man in prison and an
empty gin bottle in a back room,
about tells the story of the little
dance and supper given at II. K.
Smith's house last Saturday night.
The wounded persons aro still suf
fering from the stabbing they re
ceived from a Porto Itican named
Vierra, and the prisoner is suffering
from remorse. Still he claims that
he acted in self defense, and that
the stabbiim of the woman was
, The whole affair was the result of
a drunken spreo in which several
people got mixed up. It appears
that all went well till late in the
evening. The dance had been most
enjoyable. Light refreshment had
been handed around. All was de
lightful till the ''hard stuff" was
brought in.
The DEMON was no sooner tast
ed than the trouble started. From
authentic sources, it is learned that
another demon then followed close
ly on the heels of the "booze."
Jealousy was present in force, and
the comely appearance of one dam
sel soon got some of the men started
on a contest for her hand and heart.
The young lady seemed to enjoy

may not, have reasons to so speak

The proven facts, so far, are that'
some time during the evening a row
started and, from the evidence, it
appears that the trouble began in
side the house. The wails of one
room are stained with blood, and
there is ample "evidence that some
of the cutting was done there.
The police assert that when the
row started several men attacked
the Porto Rican, and endeavored to
take the knife he was using away
from him. In the scuffle that
ensued the woman is said to have
thrown herself into the thick of the
fight, and sustained a couple of
slashes across the shoulders. Two
men who were actively engaged in
the battle also were gashed. One
man was uit across the stomach and
on the shoulder and back. The other
man received a slash across the
right wrist and, as an artery was
severed, he bled profusely.
When the carving was at its
height, the police came down on
the run and stopped any further
damage being done. The wounded
were gathered up and taken to their
homes. The Porto Itican was arrest-

"Before reaching Detroit wo had
isited Normal, Illinois, where I was
able to see my mother and spend a
short time with her. That was a
great pleasure to us all.
"From Detroit we motored East
through Toledo, Cleveland and Buf

the trip exceedingly and then to
cap it all, .o far, we crossed the
border into Toronto, where the
twenty-fourth anniversary of our
marriage and, at the same time,
my birthday, were celebrated.
"It was at the home of the man
who, almost a quarter of a century
before, acted as my best man, that
tno celebration took place, it was
a jolly reunion, as can be imagined.
We spent three days in loronto,
and then returned to Buffalo, from
whence we drove to Boston. The
roads were splendid and the car
acted perfectly. We had no accid

all that long trip wo only had two
days rain.
"Wo had the pleasure of meeting
the sister of Miss Helen Smith, of
Smith's College, who spent some
time on Maui a while ago.
"Three days were spent in Boston
and then wc toured New Hampshire,
Portland, Brunswick and Maine.
Then back to Boston for two weeks
before driving to New York. Miss
Irene Balcom accompanied us to
the big city. Six days were spent
in New York and we made many
side trips.
The car was finally shipped by
rail to San Francisco, and we also
traveled the same way. The voyage

On Sunday morning at eight

trip on account of bad weather.

HONOLULU, Jan. 21. Some
capital letters from the pen of a
master of sarcasm are appearing
occasionally in the Advertiser.
While attacking beneath the sur
face everyone who favors the whip
ping post as a punishment for cer
tain crimes the writer really favors
it in his communications the point
is so finely drawn all must see. As
1 have said they aro from the pen
of one who deals sarcasm with a fin
ished hand hut, through it all, he
seems to think of the man, not his
works. Why bless you, "Aunt
Mary" as the prisoners in Newcastle
jail call the post, is a great factor
in keeping men and women free. I
cannot see where tho inlliction of
such punishment is more degrading
to the perpetrator of a nameless
crime than going to jail without the
cat. Once he crosses the threshold
at the reef he is degraded; the fact
that he gets a lashing is no further
degredation and, besides I am of
the opinion that it would have a
benifice nt effect on some of the
men, regardless of nationality, who
debauch young women
What a good thing it would be
for this fellow Clark, or Steele, who
not only is charged with marrying
two women without certain formali
ties hut it' is a known;, fact that he
has several girls in trouble in Hono
lulu, lie belongs in the Sinoot
country. From the. action of the
district attorney today I am doubt
ful about the marriage in California
being mi re than a contract affair
else why would the charge here be
changed from bigamy to adultery?
I am not sure which is the most
serious; the Star-Bulletin speaks as
though he could be given a longer
term as an adulterer than a biga
mist. It may be they can bring in
more counts in an indictment. At
all events it looks bad for the man.
It is said that he was at the Wil
helniina dock this morning when
the California woman arrived hut
showed no sign of recognition. To
me that omission would be grounds
for at least five more lashes. Not
for the nerve ho showed in taking
another woman to his hearthstone
should he be whipped but. for de
bauching a number of girls in the
city. I am open to conviction hut
at this writing, I believe he is a gay
old blade.
The excitement over the utter
ances of Perley Home seems to have
lost its force and Perley walks the
street without a body guard and as
free from worry or fear as the next
fellow. I believe the soldiers did
not want to put up a trifling deposit
of fifteen hundred dollars, on ac
count, and none of the "frat"
wanted to make the case a labor of
love. They all have their roputa

Catholic Fair
Was Success
Down at the Puuueue Catholic
Church, last Sunday, there was a
fine celebration, and a large con
gregation attended divine service.
Father Stephen, the well liked
priest from Honolulu, celebrated
mass and preached a stirring sermon.
There was a procession during
the morning, and members of the
flock from all parts of Central
Maui, were on hand to take part
in the affair. Tiny tots, dressed
in their best Sunday clothes, and
carrying colored flags, added to
the brightness of the scene.
Flowers were seen on all sides and
the decorations were beautiful.
After the procession a fair was
opened, and at it were to be seen
many beautiful articles. The whole
affair was much enjoyed by the
Catholics, and the money derived
through the efforts of those in
charge of the affair, is to be devot
ed to improving and repairing the
cemetery near the church.

District Overseer Hitchcock, of
Molokai, will open the eyes of those
persons who may haveheard rumors
of an investigation.
It appears that a petition "signed"
by quite a number of tho people of
Molokai, reached the chairman of
the board of supervisors. The
petitioners declared that there were
irregularities in connection with
the books of the overseer.
The chairman of the board S.
E. Kalaina made the trip to Molo

barges. Kahuna found every
thing was in good order, and that
a clerical error of St. .'50 was all that
could lie discovered. Then started
a hunt after the petitioners and.
when they had all been interviewed,
it was found that seventy-five per

were forgeries. Tho County Attor
