HAWAIIAN LADIES REPUDIATE
OCEANIC STEAMERS TO CALL AT
EVERYONE GOT FIVE CENTS FOR
NUMEROUS MATTERS DISPOSED
OF THIS MORNING.
CAPTAIN WINSLOW AND THE
POLICY OF THE CONGRESSMAN ATT
rain WE MM HUH
Alleged to Have oil but Denounced her
at Mrs. Sam Parker's Residence Last
Lllluokalanl's politics are alleged to
have brought upon her the condemna
tion of some of the most prominent of
lier own race. According to a report
which was generally circulated today
she was openly told last Saturday by a
number of Hawaiian women that she
bad worked to accomplish the defeat o
Sam Parker and Prince David, and ex
erted her Influence to elect Wilcox to
Congress. Moreover they passed severe
censure upon her for her reported trea
chery. It Is said that last Saturday the
Queen determined to visit the residence
of Samuel Parker and there express to
him her regret over his defeat and also
to protest her friendship and entirely
neutral position during the recent cam
paign. She did not see Mr. Parker, but
she found a sufficient number of people
to listen to her declaration In the per.
sons of some ladles who were calling on
Whether LlliuokalanI detected or
thought she detected an unexpected re
serve In the manner of Mrs. Parker to
wards her, is not known. But evident
ly desiring to mollify her hostess the
Queen decided to renounce to her any
part In the defeat of the Cowboy and to
explain her course during the recent
She is alleged to have introduced the
subject to Mrs. Parker and the other
ladles present, the majority of whom
were Hawaiians by birth and sympathy
by expressing regret-over the defeat ot
Mr. Parker. Then from regret the
Queen "roceded to clear her skirts ot
any political mud by denial of the
charges which have from time to time
been made against her. She Is alleged
to nave informed her hearers that the
report that she had taken any part In
effecting the defeat of Mr. Parker Vas
untrue. On the contrary she had not
sided against him at all nor had she
supported Wilcox against him. The only
action upon her part which could be
constued as taking any sides or having
any political significance was her utter
ance regarding the candldacv of her
nephew. Prince David. She had told the
Hawaiians that she thought David too
young and to Inexperienced to be sent
to the halls of Congres and for this
reason she advised her people to vote
against him. It might Incidentally be
remarked that if such advice was given
it was certainly followed In Its strict
But instead of this explanation being
Teceived with a warm response the
words of the Queen fell upon sullen ears
Instead of the ladles rallying to her side
and expressing belief In her impartiali
ty it Is said they openly expresspd the
opinion that she had sided with Wilcox
and been most Instrumental In bringing
about the defeat of Parker. Tn fact
several of the ladles, women who had
Known the Queen before she tocmp
the ruler of her people, made bold to
say that they believed almost every re
port of her conduct and they resented
It most deeply:.
In vain did the Queen renmv her de
nials. Her countrywomen gained cour
age with every minute and flnallv Lill--uokalani
found herself surrounded by
an indignant and protesting female
chorus. They told her that some of her
mlssaries had gone out and worked
openly against both David and Parker.
The Queen denied this statement but
In answer the ladles told her that sev
eral of those who court her bounty had
visited the beach at Walkilcl and there
advised the natives to vote for Wilcox
and turn down Sam Parker. So ani
mated did the ladies become and so
positive were they In their belief In the
reports against her that the" Queen
realized that she was no longer with
those who were friendly disposed to
ward her so she discreetly allowed the
topic of conversation to be changed as
soon ns possible, followed by her retire
ment from the house.

The Shipping Master Disciplines an
Unruly Boarder and Is Fined Fifty
Dollars and Costs.
"How to Control Unruly Boarders,"
a short address to Judge Wilcox by
Charles McCarthy, was listened to with
great Interest this morning In the po
lice court. It cost the speaker a $50
fine. McCarthy's method was a very
effective one, but Stephen Hanlon, up
on whom he tried It last Friday, ob
jected to soma of the proceedings, de
claring that they were assault and bat
tery. Hanlon came to Honolulu ten days
ago on a sailing vessel and put up at
McCarthy's boarding house after he
had worked out $2 and costs. From
the first he was a thorn In the side
of the management, for he loved
swipes and swipes made him sing.
McCarthy shipped him on the Star of
Russia, but after he had worked a
couple of hours he found that his con
stitution needed gin. McCarthy gave
him some and more was needed and
Hanlon left .the ship.
The witnesses In the assault and bat
tery case told Interesting details of
how the boarding house is managed.
It appeared that it was McCarthy's
benevolent custom to give each board
ed five' cents In the morning, with
which to get breakfast. If he wasn't
there when the arose In the morning
they had to wait for the nickel. f
"I used to give them a quarter each,"
said McCarthy to the judge, "but I
found that they went and "ot swipes
The men. were therefore given five
cents each, and told not to squander
It on drink.
Last Friday morning Hanlon rose
early. During the night he had danced
the can-can .on several beds, his feet
going through one of them and Mc
Carthy Invited htm to leave the place.
Instead he "ot a bottle bf swipes and
sat on the porch to discuss It. J. N.
Mclntyre, one of the witnesses, said
he sang to It, but Hanlon solpmnly In
formed the Judge that he rose quietly
after a long night's slumber and did
not take even a drink of water.
"He was singing to the bottle when
I saw him," said Mclntyre. "He al
ways sings when he drink, not that
he was drunk this time, for I never
say that no man Is drunk, but he had
the bottle In front of him on the porch
and he Would sing a song to It and
then he would take a drink. After the
drink he would sing another song and
take a drink again."
Between drinks Hanlon suddenly
thought of the nickel that was due him
and he left the bottle and went to Mc
Carthy after it. "How about break
fast?" he demanded.
McCarthy happened to have a bottle
himself. It was an "lie" bottle. His
gorce rose at the impudent demand for
the morning nickel and he swung his
bottle on Hanlon, telling him that the
blow with the bottle was to be his
breakfast. Hanlon retired but he came
"He came up to me and wanted
to' know If I meant It, your honor,"
said McCarthy "and then, he ordered
me out to fight and see which was the
best man. I looked at him a bit and
then I stepped out.
"He put up his fists, bur he was a
bit slow about leading,-so I landed on
him, and we had about three rounds."
MpCarthv's face was bare of marks,
but Hanlon wore much cloth about his
head and many patches.
"At the end of the three rounas ne
said I was the best man," continued
McCarthy, "and then we shook hands
and I asked him It ne was wining to
behave if he stayed. He said he was,
that I was the best man and he would
be a quiet boarder."
Deputy Sheriff Chllllngworth and
Attorney Henshall had a little war of
words over points in the testimony and
then Judge Wilcox Had nis say. ne
didn't mind a bit of a rough house
in a sailors' boarding piace, out e
tviniicht that no man had a right to
give another a blow with a bottle for
breakfast, He nneu jucuaruiy au uuu

first two named are here to consult
with the Republican managers regard
ing certain Irregularities in the elec
tion at Lahaina. White, who will not
be Wilcox's secretary at Washington,
Is over to ascertain the plans of his
McCann claims that the election in
his burg was illegal for the reason
that the requirements in regard to the
construction and arrangement of
booths, etc.. were not complied with.
There were no railings at all about the
polling place. It Is related that Inde
pendents did not hesitate to continue
directing voters after they had enter
ed the booths to mark their ballots.
A thing like that In Honolulu would
have caused a fight on the spot, and
came near doing so In Lahaina. Thp
objectors were overruted and gave the
matter up arter nung a protest. The
Republican leaders do not think they
can do anything as no- penalty is at
tached to that part ot the law cover
ing the matter.
D. H. Kahaulelio, who was In tho
laBt legislature, came down on the
same business. He was snowed un
der at Lahaina by his brother, D. K.
Could the Lahaina vote be thrown out
p. H. would be ahead. The Republi
can leaders have replied that the leg
islature is made the sole Judge of the
qualifications of Its members, and that
D.. H, can bring a contest therein for
his brother's seat.
Mr. Kahaulelio speaks very bitterly
of his family In connection with his
defeat. "I was beaten by my own
father " he said last night. "My fa
ther, Judge Kahaulelio, pretended to be
working hard for me. He told me to
attend to Molokal and other outside
precincts, and that he would land La
haina for me, I accepted this In good
faith and followed the advice. My sur
prise may be Imagined when I return
ed to Lahaina and found that tho old
man had been working day and night
for the whole Independent ticket and
Jabbing the knlfo Into my Republican
ribs every chance he got. lie told
people straleht out not to vote for me,
and they did not. I was snowed under
at my own home. My relatives and
best friends did it."
Following the report that "Oily Bill"
White will at once submit his resigna
tion from the office of senator so as to
get away to Washington as secretary
to Robert- Wilcox, there Is talk of a
special election on Maul to fill the va
canoy. Judge Kepolkal will likely bo
put up by the Republicans. It was
rumored last night that the Democrat
and Independents would combine on
W, H. Cornwell.
F. H.Havselden. otherwise "Klkaha"
succeeded in handing Lanal over to the
Democrats so that Prince David car
ried two islands Molokai and Lanai.

the election facetiously thus; "We
have met the enemy and we are theirs."

EVENTFUL TRIP OF THE
End of a Sailors' Fight on the Maul's
Deck One of the Kinau's Men Is
Two men fell overboard from the
steamer Maul on her trip last week and
one from the -Kinau, the latter being
drowned. The Maul men had a fight on
deck and tried to throw each other off,
with the result that both went over the
stern. The Kinau man opened a. port
and went through it.
The rescue from the Maui was a re
markable one. The two men fell from
the steamer late on Saturday night,
while the Vessel was In the midst of
very stormy weather In the channel be
tween Hawaii 'and Maui. They are
Keahu and Haleauki.
Keahu and Haleauki quarrelled over
politics or something else and began
fighting. They clinched on deck aft and
began wrestling. The steamer was roll
ing and pitching very heavily and both
rolled on the deck. The end of the fight
came when they got on a pile, of ropes
and an unusual lurch sent them both
Into the stormy water.
The alarm was given and a boat was
lowered In quick time. The steamer
was going ahead nt full speed when the
men fell and It took some time to stop
her, but both men showed up close by
almost as soon as the boat was lowered
into the water. They are young men
and both are remarkably good swim
mers. As soon as they found themselves In
the water Keahu and Haleauki released
their hold on one another, stopped the

Walnae was the man lost from tho
Kinau. He started to open one of the
ports as the steamer was slowing down
at Laupahoehoe and rolling very heavi
ly. As soon as he drew the bolt both
doors of the port flew open and Wainae
went through them. He was an old
man and not strong enouch to swim for
long In such a sea, and he was never
seen alter he feu.
The unfortunate man's voice was
heard from tho water as the steamer
went on. He was calling to the vessel
to stop, A boat was lowered and for an
nour a search was made but Walnae
could not be found. Tho sea was fear
fully rough and he must have become
exhausted very quickly. Walnae was
