IlIHGUIIllllifilllfll JAPANESE WOMAN VICIOUSLY STRUCK DOWN. KAMEHAMEIIAS TO CELEBRATE TOMORROW. Deputy Marshal Investigates and Ar rests Three Men Story ot the Crime. I cannot assume that the positive nnd explicit instructions given me by tne Treasury department wlien it seat me here are or can be modified by my understanding of n court decision. 1 shall go right ahead rejecting Chinese who seek to land here without the qualifications required by the United States laws. Those who came on the Gaelic and were rejected will have to go back to China unless the courts here release them. Those who come on the China, if any do come, who are not qualified to land under United States latv, will follow the fame course." Such is the position of .Special Ag ent J. K. Drown takes on the Chinese matter, as ho expressed it himself to day. I do not mean by this," lie continu ed, "any disrespect to the court or the chief justice who rendered the habeas corpus opinion yesterday. I do not mean it as ony criticism of the deci sion. I do not even challenge the cor rectness of the decision 111 the position I take. It is simply that I am an ad ministrative officer; my instructions are explicit and imperative. They are the instructions of a department of the executive branch of the gov ernment. Whether those instructions will be modified when yesterday's de cision is made known at Washington- ton, I cannot tell. Hut I cannot as sume that they will be, and until they are I shall follow those I have. "If the Chinese who are rejected un der those instructions have u right to land in Hawaii under the principles laid down in yesterday's decisions, the courts here will, I assume, give them tlie right, lhey will not be injured by my position." All the Chinese who were discharged yesterday by Chief Justice Judd had authorization to land issued prior to July 8th, the day the Coptic brought tlie news of annexation, and of course prior to August lath, the day the sov ereignty of the Islands was transferr ed. It is the opinion of those who have given tlie subject attention that yesterday's decision may not have de cided the right of those Chinese to land whose return permits were issu ed after July 8th, when information of changed relations was first receiv ed, or after August 12th, when the sovereignty was actually transferred. llie proceedings in the case of the Chinese rejected from the Oaelic will proceed without reference to the do cision yesterday, tlie interested par ties 111 which arrived by tlie City of 1ening. Another petition for habeas corpus on behalf of four Chinese who arrived by the Gaelic is being prepared and win be hied this afternoon. The grounds are tlie same 11s those set forth on behalf of the Chinese from the City of Peking. Tlie same attor neys appear in tlie case. STOCK EXCHANGE. Rids Were: En 240.

At exactly two minutes to 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon Deputy Marshal Chillingworth received u ' telephone message from Deputy Sheriff Cox of Wuialua that u Japanese woman had been found dead In tlie fields and that foul play was suspected. The local official immediately took a hack and caught the 3:10 train for tlie new plantation. When he reached Wahilua the depu ty marshal found that Cox had made a partial investigation.. Three Japanese were there and had been giving some testimony concerning the death of the woman. Cliillingworth's suspicions were aroused by tlie story of these men nnd lie hud them arrested and held for Investigation. Tlie examina tion took until 2 o'clock this morn ing. About n dozen Japanese labor ers were examined. All the evidence educed seemed to point to tlie three men ns the guilty parties. Chillingworth returned to town "ny tlie 9 o'clock train this morning bring ing tlie three men with him. Their names are Harado, Mlsliimoto and TIo izuma. The dead woman's name is Driu. A coroner's inquest will be held over the dead body of tlie woman at Waialua. The men will be locked in Oahu prison for safe keeping. In dications are that they will each be charged with murder in the first de gree. Yesterday morning the three Japa nese visited Sheriff Cox and told him that if he heard of any foul play in which a Japanese woman was con cerned that they were not to blame for it;, that they had reason to believe that some crime would be committed, but kne,w nothing more about it. A short time later tlie finding of tlie body was reported to Cox. Shortly after noon Cox took charge of it and then began his examination of the three Japanese about the matter. They tried to shift the blame upon others. That was tlie situation when the dep uty marshal reached Waialua. An examination of the body reveal ed the fact that tlie woman was struck on the right temple with n club or tlie butt of n cane knife with sullieieiit force to cause almost instant death. There was also evidence of a beating, but. the blow referred to was the cause of death. All the Japanese connected with tlie affair are laborers on the new Waia lua plantation. One of tlie men is the husband of the murdered woman. There is strong evidence ns to tlie particular man who dealt the death blow, but the prosecution will reserve that part of its hand until the court hearing. LODGINGS PItOVlDED.

Government is Prepared to do Some Work A' Handicap Plans to be Considered. A 3,000,000 Pound Plan Promised for West Australia. Captain Williamson of the Cite nt Adelaide says a scheme is being'agi tated in Freemantle and the part ot West Australia tributary to that city to construct a system of water works to cost 3,000,000 pounds. The propos ed source'ot supply is a lake about 300 miles from Freemantle. Ver'v exten. sive and expensive pumping works will be required. One of tlie chief purposes of the water system will be to open up gold fields which exist there but cannot be worked profitab ly for hick of water. If carried out this scheme will be one of the most colossal of its kind in fhe world. J. F. Hackfeld, W. M. GliTard, F. A. Schnefer, M. Swan.v, C. 11. Cooke, Captain W. B. Godfrey and C. L. Wight representing tlie Chamber of Com merce had an audience witli the Cab inet at 10 o'clock this morning on the subject of a larger harbor. Mr Hackfeld, chairman of the com mittee, stated the object of the call. The Chamber of Commerce had in structed the committee to ascertain what plans the government had reach ed with regard to harbor enlargement. There were as yet no recommenda tions. If the government had no plans for immediate work. It was desired to know if it was in a position to carry out improvement schemes if their ne cessity were shown. There were remarks by several. It was represented that shipping was greatly iiiconvenieneed by the present lack of docking facilities. Every year the situation was growing more grave. In tlie past several months vessels had been required to wait for an almost indefinite period to dis charge. The inter-ishiud fleets had also been greatly inconvenienced. All the members of the cabinet had a word in reply. They said that the government was thoroughly alive to the need of better facilities nnd was prepared to entertain schemes for the enlargement of the harbor. The Inte rior department was greatly handi capped in having but one 'dredger. This machine was needed most of tlie time in clearing tlie mud from the bay. u tne government had another dredg er faster work could be accomplished. it had been decided to deepen one side of tlie Richards street slip as soon as possible to admit one large vessel at a time. Later the other side could also be finished. The government's plans witli respect to the western side of the harbor was temporarily stayed oy tne suit now in court, the circum stances of which were. well known. However, it was possible to make some improvements down there out side of tlie suit lines. It was the desire of the Cabinet that the Chamber of Commerce submit n definite plan for harbor enlargement.
