CUSTOM HOUSE SEIZURES ARE
Twenty Thousand Dollars' Worth of
Tabu Drug Dumped Into the Sea by
the Board of Health.
There Is no dope left In' tho oUstom
house. This morning the Board of
Health made a descent upon the musty
little vault where the catches of so
many years have been stored and It was
all hauled away from the custom houso
to be put on board a scow, taken two
miles' out to sea and dumped overboard.
uy this time the turtles and fishes in
the locality chosen have had their bit
of strange flavor, and are doubtless
wondering what sort of stuff they have
Dr. Garvin, Dr. Pratt, Samuel John
son and F. T. Neeley and W. H. Drum-
lnonil, with three or four workmen, got
the opium out from among the dirt and
cockroaches of the vault, where It has
been stored. Drummond tallied for the
custom house, and Dr. Pratt for the
Board of Health, and tho workmen
threw tire tins Into 1i. wagon. There
were 3,251 tins in all. While the count
was proceeding Dr. Garvin rummaged.
about In the vault, which has a smell
that will not leave it soon, and found n
pipe with which some wily Importer of
dope expected to enjoy himself. It had
seen better days, but the doctor decided
that it was worth saving from the
wreck, as a souvenir. .
There was all kinds of dope in the
lot fed to. the fishes today. Drummond
and Neeley are both old hands at the
dope-catching business, and recognized
among the boxes the trophies of many
catches that were great events In their
day. There was Hongkong number one
dope, nicely labeled and bearing
stamps that showed that It had been
lawfully Imported Into San Francisco,
and duty paid on it, before it was start
ed Hawaii-wards, to end Its Journey In
the dark little vault, and then In the
briny deep. There was cheap Victoria
dope and cheap San Francisco dope, nil
looking alike to the unpractlced eye,
but easily distinguishable to the old
hands at the business.
Each tin was opened before It was
thrown Into the water. Dr. Garvin had
a long Job superintending the opening
of over three thousand tins, but the
work was necessary, for the unopened
can might come drifting back ashore
and be rescued by some hungry China
A lot of Chinamen stood outside the
little alleyway leading to the custom
house vault, while the opium was being
placed on the wagon. They peered
through the iron gatway and Jabbered
about the white man's folly in throwing
away good dope. The value of the lot
thrown away Is at leaBt $20,000, and at
rates that have been quoted In some
parts of the Islands, when the precious
drug was scarce, It would be worth four
or five times that sum. The Hawaiian
government has for some time adopted
the policy of allowing no opium In the
country whatever, and today's clean-up
was the last under the old regime. The
vault is to be used hereafter for in
ternpl revenue stamps, of which Dep
uty Collector Flint brought a hundred
thousand dollars' worth from San

Miss Mnbet Hart and Charles Allen
Elston were married nt noon today at
St. Andrews' Cathedral.
The church was very handsomely and
profusely decorated In green and white,
marguerites being the dominating flow
er, and bamboo the effective material
used In the massing effects of the dee
oration. An arch of green studded with
marguerite across the chancel was h
unique feature of the decorations, anil
it whs under this arch that the cere
mony took place.
'the maid of honor was Mlm Juliette
King, und the bridesmaids were Miss
Mary Rice, Miss Eula Elston and MIbh
Gretchen Kopke. The muld of honor
and the brldesmnlds nil wore handsome
pinK gowns with big picture lints of
inacK ostrich plumes, and carr led bou
quets of iilnk flowers.
George fculler was the best man. nnrt
the ushers. Arthur Mackintosh. C. A.
Jacox and R. E. Mist. The brides
maids and ushers entered the church
from the side door, nnd nasslnu In front
of the chancel down the main aisle, met
the bride ns she entered the door on
the nrm of her father. At the chancel
all the groom and his best man with
the oillclatlnir elerevmnn. Rev. Alex
ander Mackintosh, met tho bride, the
choir meanwhile singing the bridal
march fiom Lohengrin. During the
marriage ceremony Harold Mott-Smith
played the Intermezzo from Cavnlerla
very softly on the 'cello, accompanied
by Wrny Taylor on tho organ. Follow
ing the ceremony at the chancel tho
choir sang the 138th Psalm and a hymn,
and following this was a special wed
ding march, with Mendelssohn's wed
ding march, as the bridal party left

church to the residence of the brlde"s

breakfast was served. The newly mar
ried couple will leave by the Austra

The church was entirely filled with
the friends and relatives of the bride
At 2 o'clock, also at St. Andrews' Ca
thedral, occurred the marriage of Miss
Clara Dekuni to F. W. Meyer. The
Bride was attended by Miss Kate Rem
as bridesmaid, while W. A. Baldwin
was the groom s best man. The bride
was given away In marriage by her
brother. Edwnrd Dekum. The ushers
were Dr. J. Watt and M. F. Prosser.
The bridal party entered the church
to the strains of the Lohengrin wed
ding march, nnd during the service
Wrny Taylor plnyed a composition es
speclally composed for this occasion.
Rev. Alexander .Mackintosh officiated.
Miss Dekum's home Is In Portland,
Oregon, though she has visited the Is
lands before, and Is well known and
very popular. The groom Is connected
with one of the plantations on Kauai.
There was a large attendance of friends
at the church.
Mr. and Mrs. Meyer will leave r
Knuat this afternoon.
There were thirty-four drUnks on
hand when Judge Wilcox opened court
this morning, ubout half of them In the
"cage" and the rest, having put up
ball, occupying seats In the court-room
awaiting tho call to the bar of Justice,
which in this case, meant the call to
pay two dollars and costs. The Judge
went through the thirty-four cases llko
the artist he has learned to be at the
business. There Is only one question,
in native or English as the case may
be, usually put before the charge Is
fairly out of the deputy mashal's
mouth, "Were you drunk?" The an
swer Is generally an afllrmatlve or a
nod, nnd the prisoner hears his doom.
Most of the thirty-four today were
11th of June Jags. In the whole list
there was only one mun who hnd the
nerve to deny the Impeachment. He
Informed the Judge that he had been
arrested Just as he had left a certain
saloon nnd was getting into a hack. The
Judge Intimated that the prisoner had
a rather powerful breath for a sober
man, and requested him to a little far
ther away, and the policemen who
made the arrest said that the prisoner
had been found lying on the sidewalk
with no hack near. The defendant was
not to be shaken In the opinion that
ho had started for a hack. He admit
ted however, that he had In fact been
at the races and was feeling pretty
well, and his honor told the clerk to
collect two dollars and costs.
Three or four sailors were In the lot.
having come ashore and found the holi
day too much for them. Two sailors
were In for desertion, as they refused
to work on the 11th of June. They told
their captain they were going to tnke
the dny off, In spite of his orders, and
left the ehlp. About hnlf an hour later
they were In for desertion, and they
spent the stolen holiday In Jail.
There was no meeting of the Cabinet
this morning, but there will be one this
afternoon. It is probable there will be
no announcement of Territorial ap
pointments until Admission Day,

city will remember Melville aiarx, wno
first brought the Frawley Company to
Honolulu. Mr. Marx has written to Mr.
Fred Lewis nnd other of his friends
here that the Nelll Company la a much
finer organization than the Frawley
company was In Its palmiest days. Oth
ers have, received similar assurances
from friends and social acquaintances
In the States. As for the plays to be
presented by the Nelll Company, there
can be no possible doubt as to their
unquestionable superiority, so Honolulu
can get out its best bib and tucker nnd
prepare to fully enjoy the dramatic
banquet that Is about to be set before It.
The splendid showing made by the
Provident Savings Life of New York
for last year. Its excellnet financial
condition under Its efficient manage
ment and the general endorsement of
the leading financial and public press of
America Is most gratifying to the pol
icy holders. This company Is repre
sented In Honolulu by I. R. Burns; of
fice In Old Government Building, next
