I1H01UK IE til puis hi sin mnn lift Postmaster General Oat Arranging a New Mall Schedule for the Wind ward Side of the Island. "Through trains to Kaliuku with out change of cars," may soon bu an nounced. There will be one less "star route" in the Hawaiian mall sorviou utter Christmas. The Oahu railroad is completed to Kaliuku. Freight trains have' already been run to that point though a regu lar schedule lias not yet been put in operation. Tlie passenger service will boon be extended there. 'Postmaster General Oat is now ar ranging to discontinue the mail ser vice by stage over the Pali to Kaliuku and will send postal matter thither by train as soon as the train schedule 13 arranged. The postofllce will then be able to give a daily mall service. lhe extension Irom Waiahia to Ka liuku has been put through in very short order. It is only a few months since the extension to Waialua was completed and trains began to run there, Now another link in the project of a railroad clear around the Island is completed, and another see tion of country is put within conven ient access from the capital. A whole lot ot people who have lived here for years and never been on the other side of the Island can now make tlie trip without inconvenience or trouble. lhe completion of this section of the road ought to very largely increase the tourist travel on Oahu. Hereto fore tourists have been content to see Honolulu and nearby points accessi ble by carriage and to guess at what there is on tlie rest of the Island and what it looked like. Now there will be no excuse for not seeing something more and going away with a more comprehensive idea of Oahu than lias in tlie nast been readily attainable. -Mr. Dillingham and the Oahu rail road are to be congratulated on this liinslied advance of their plans.

Will be a Great Event in the Portu guese Community, CHINAMAN" EXPIRES IN THE YARD OF THE POLICE STATION. Afflicted With Consumption In the Last Throes He Tries to Reueii a Hospital. Editor Star: Hy the publication In one of the papers of a carelessly wrlt- en article I am represented as being esnonslble for a harrowing tale ot the death of u dog who is still able to wag his own tail. Ordinarily tlie sat isfaction I would feel In learning tnat reports made to me of cruelty to ani mals are untrue would be ample com pensation for the good notured bnn tering I received from my friends about my efforts to prevent cruelty to animals. Rut when, as in this case, through wholly gratuitous misrepresentation, those who are not in sympathy with the work in behalf of dumb animals, are enabled to throw discredit on that work, l feel that In justice to myself and the marshal under whose commis sion I nih acting, I must protest. Peo ple come to me daily with the most positive assertions of cruelty to ani mals of the facts of which they profess the most certain knowledge. Hut when I examine into the matter. I find their stories have no other foundation than the most distant hearsay ot the prattle of children, or the ill-natured remnrks of people about their neigh bors. When 1 find this to be the ease the stories go no further through my instrumentality. If others wish to spread them I cannot help it, but I object decidedly to being quoted as authority for them, and especially as in the ease in question when 1 request ed and was promised that nothing should be said about It, because there was no foundation for the reports of cruelty to this particular dog. The facts in this case are that I was told that Mr. Walker's dog had been. beaten till he died. Hut almost Im mediately I learned positively that the dog was alive and well. There was neither investigation nor need of in vestigation. Hut the original story was pubiisiied as coming lrom nie. And it is such things that T object to. With all who are in sympathy with the work, T shall gladly co-operate, and will not upbraid them even when I find as I have found in the past that much of what they hear and repeat to nie as fact doesn't "pan out." Hut f don't want to be held respon sible for stories that I neither invent nor circulate. HELEN K. WILDER. FOUNDERS' DAY. MB CdliONKR'S .JURY SAYS WOMAN WAS MURDERED. Prosecution Gleans Some Evidence That May Serve to Locate the Guilty, Parties. There is the body of a dorl China man at the station house to.lay. Dep uty Marshal Hitchcock lias decided that there will be no coroner's inquiry as it was impossible to find any Indi cations of foul play. The man's name is Ciong Sin. Ik was .IS years of age and formerly kept a store 'on Hawaii. Of late he lias been a cook for a family in town. For a year or more he has had consumption and that undoubtedly cnusii ins death. At 7 o'clock this morning tho sick man was assisted to n hack near the Chinese engine house on Mnuiiakea street and asked to be driven to the Chinese hospital. Upon finding thai consumption was the trouble the hack driver refused to take him, and com pelled his friends to remove him from the rig. Reaching the sidewalk the poor fel low fell down exhausted. A police man came up, ordered an express wagon anil took him to the st.Ulou house. Dr. Emerson was summuied immediately, but soon after he nrrhed the man died. The dead man lived in tlie alley near the engine house. If is said that he had no medical attention to speak of, and would not consent to go to tltr hospital until death stared him ilium', diately in file face. Tn the judgment of Dr. Emerson lie would have died anyway this morning, even had ho 'io been disappointed about reaching Hie hospital. STRIKE ON THE WAIALEAI.E.

There was a strike of tlie crew on the steamer Waialeale this inornin It grew out of charges of ill treatment made by the native deckhands against the mate. Tlie crew appealed t.. -lie ollieers ot tlie Inter-Island Company, and a full investigation will be made. Tlie Waialeale came in from Kauai this morning with 2,700 bags of sugar and went alongside the Albert in the stream to discharge, her sugar oi'i'ig needed to complete the Albert s cargo. There was considerable rea.-on lor haste, as tlie Albert wnttfed to llni-.li loading in time to clear today b.'Iniv the custom house closed, in order to ail tomorrow. Hut the Waialeale had been alongside the Albert some time and there were still no signs ol sugar being moved from one vessel to the other. Interested persons on the wharf were beginning to wonder what was the matter when the crew were all seen to bo leaving in a boat. Quite a crowd had gathered at the wharf when the boat came to a land ing. Tlie crew in n body made for the offices of the Inter-Island Company I!ut it quickly got sprend about that there wns trouble aboard. 1 he crew claim that while they were loading su gar on Kauai, tin- mate struck one of the men with n belaying pin. So as soon as they arrived in this port and tlie steamer was made fast they re fused to work sugar under the dircc tion of the mate, but came ashore. The company officials promised to make a thorough Investigation of the mntter, and meanwhile ns there was haste to get the sugar aboard the Albert, an other crew was sent to the Waialeale to unload. DEEP SEA FISHING. At Waialua at 0 o'clock last night the coroner's jury, appointed by Dep uty Sheriff Cox to Investigate the mys- rioiiK killing of a Japanese woman near the plantation Wednesday morn ing, returned a verdict to tlie effect that the deceased came to her death, liv a blow on the head inflicted by some person to the jury unknown. 1 here were some sensational devel opments in the case late yesterday, and it nniy be that the prosecution. now has the situation clearly demnrk- d. Hy the use of a Japanese trusty at Oahu prison some statements rc- arding tlie murder have been eliclt- from the men arrested in connec tion with the affair. It will be re membered that throe Japs were ar rested by Deputy Marshal Chilling- worth on suspicion. One of .the prisoners is the husband of the dead woman. The others are his reputed cousins. It is said that they deliberately decided some timo ago to kill the woman and it fell to the husband to do it. lhe story goes that he tool; her away from the plan- ation, ostensibly to come to Honolu lu for a day, but really to kill her when out of sight. lhe re is hardly a question but that aeli of the three men know more or less of the actual circumstances of tho killing. This may be by actual con nivance or merely by hearsay. Tho prosecution has almost reached tho conclusion to prosecute all throe for murder in the first degree. If. how ever, tho innn who netunlly struck the, blow can bo located, the charges igainst the others may be modified. AN INTERESTED SPECTATOR. The Malolo Starts on Her First Fish ing Cruise.
