The above Is a list of fourteen mem

Tuesday. They are all members of the
Home Rule element. All were up for
re-election and all wont down to defeat
on their Lady-Dog record. On the other
hand, with two exeeptfolns, every ite
publican who was up for re-election
was supported by the voters.
Excepting Fred W. Beckley of Maul
and J. K. Paele of Oahu not a
Home Rule member of the last
House or Spnate who was up for re

down-to defeat on Maul, with Curlolslty

the man who "had his district In his

upon the last legislature, It is regarded
as a clear verdict of approval of the

FOR ETTA FRIEL
TO BE ERECTED BY THE LITTLE
CHILDREN OF HONOLULU A
EDITOR STAR: Out from the sha
dow of that terrible calamity (the fire
on Nuuanu street) last Thursday night,
shines a bright spot of humanity such
as Is not often seen and which should
be duly appreciated Ui- the public. I
refer to the' devotion of the child Etta
to her mother: with her'foot outside of
the' window-sill, and in easy reach of
safety, she deliberately turned around,
calling to her sister: "No! I will stay
with mother!" Beneath the ruins of
the burned house were found the
charred remains of mother and child
lying close together and covered by a
mattress. Would It not be but right
nnd comforting for the public to ask
nowledge this child's devotion to her
mother in some suitable manner? I
am sure there are very many children
who would like to contribute their little
subscription towards erecting a stone
properly engraved in memory of the
dear little heroine'.
DR. GEORGE HERBERT.
The foregoing letter appeared In last
Monday's issue of the Star. It attract
ed widespread attention and the verj
thoughtful suggestion made by Dr.
Herbert will be made a reality with
the aid of the children of Honolulu.
The Star has been requested to act as
treasurer of the memorial fund and all
subscriptions will- be acknowledged
through these columns from day to day
until a sufficient amount Is realized to
provide a suitable memorial stone for
the grave of the little heroine.
The Idea Is to make thevsubscrlptlon
a popular one and a large sum from
Individual subscribers Is not desired. A
small sum from each child is preferred.
A child with five cents will be Just as
welcome as the highest subscriber.

W. G. IRWIN'S VIEW ON WHAT
IS NEEDED AN EXPERT AND
PLENTY OF WATER ESSENTIALS
The Impetus given the Improvement
of Kaplolanl Park by W. G. Irwin's
subscription of $1000 has been followed
with four more promises of $230 each
and the plans show signs of speedy
"There is much that can be done for
the Improvement of the park," said W.'
G. Irwin this morning. "I have lived
there now for twenty-two years and I
know the difficulties that lie in the way.
Not everything will grow there and a
great deal of what does grow could be
replanted to much better advantage. It
Is really all white sand out there, but
experiments with my own place have
shown that many trees can grow there
which will beautlfv the place. Ban
yans for Instance will grow well. TImj
ironwoods, which by the way, are nnt
as is generally supposed a Northern
pine, but grow on the atolls of the Pa
cific, are very effective when planted in
clumps or as an avenue. The way they
are scattered now has a very gloomy
cemetery like effect.
"The main thlhir Is to get a good sup
ply of water through the government.
We could dig a well and have a con
stant How running through the lagoons
while lilies and water hyacinths could
bloom and the water kept frdm belmr
stagnant as at present. We need a
practical head though. If this expert
comes to us from Scotland and our
plans go through we shall be able to
know what can be done to the place
after a talk with him. He is not a
gardener be it understood, In the or
dinary sense of the word, but an artist,
botanist, forester and the high stan
dard of education that makes the ex
pert landscape gardener.
"As I understand It, the park under
his care will show groups of trees
planted with retrard to vistas seen from
winding avenues. Tv,ere will be no set
walks or ilower beds. Nature will be
assisted, not perverted. Pretty glimp
ses of the sea or mountains will be
framed In tree trunks and foliage.
Natural formations will be used to
their best advantage. There will be nu
attempt to paint the lily, but every op
portunity will be given the illy to grow
to the best of its capacity. The little
Islands now existent in the lagoons
should be capable of much beauty If
properly laid out.
"The lodge that has been mentioned
should I am Inclined to think, be built
In the Swiss chalet style. I think an
excellent place for it would bt opposite
f'unha's residence whore a poiid was
filled In some time back, being ' the
right of the road the carriages take
when driving to the band concerts.
Being the residence of the head expert
he will naturally make it the show
place of the park, and It will make a
delightful entrance. Water, a practi
cal head and money to keep up the Im
provements should make a beautiful
park of the ground. I don't want to In
terfere with the Jockey Club but the
race track ground would naturally be
absorbed Into the park In course of
Japan will have to pay duty
when she sends supplies to her
local consul. Collector Stackable
received an order from the
Treasury Department today no
tifying him of this fact. It ap
pears that article 476 of the Cus
toms Regulations of 1899 per
mits the free entry of articles
sent 'by a foreign government to
Its .agent. The majority of the
nations have accorded similar
privileges to Uncle Sam. Sec
retary Shaw of the Treasury
Department has learned, how
ever that Japan, Rusc5- Rou
manla, Servia, Bolivia, Chill,
Denmark and Peru do not ex
tend this courtesy. It has now
been decided to withdraw this
courtesy from those countries
and they will have to pay duty
in future on consular supplies
sent to its olllcials.
Nigel Jackson was arraigned before
Judge Wilcox this morning to answer
to a charge of murder In the first de
gree preferred by E. B. Frlel, the hus
band of one of the victims of the lire
last week, which Jackson Is accused of
having caused. Jackson was represent
ed by Lorrln Andrews, who asked that
the examination begin at once. Deputy
High Sheriff Chllllngworth asked for a
continuance until tomorrow In order
that the matter might be presented to
the grand Jury.
Andrews opposed this motion. The
court said that it was in favor of the
grand Jury system and would grant the
continuance. There was some discus
sion which ended by the case being
continued until tomorrow.

MAMMOTH RESERVOIR CONTEM
PLATED AT WAIALUA AT A COST
OF QUARTER OF MILLION.
A proposition Is on foot in connection
with the water supply of the Wnlalua
plantation to build the biggest dam on
the-.Islands 'at a cost of a tjuarter of Vx
million dollars. The big reservoir once
formed will hold something like two bil
lion and a half gallons of water.
When the Walalua and Wahlawa land
owners were trying first to get the land
from the government, at which time
John Emmeluth was also a bidder, the
two first mentioned bodies associated
Interests nnd the land was made over
to them qnjthe understanding that the
water rights were vested In the Wnla
lua plantation with the understanding
that the Wahiawa colony were to have
certain necessary supplies of water.
The land lies in 'a broad, plain running
from Walalua on the coast back to
wards the converging slopes of the
Wnlanne mountains and the main range
o fthe Islands. Wahiawa colony lies to
wards the head of this big valley and

Honolulu while two streams water the

the natural waters but never the storm
waters. They have pumped extensively
Natural water Infiltrated through the
soli and brought again to the surface Is
of Infinitely more value to sugar plant
ers thnn the same water percolated
through the soil and brought out from
an artesian well.
The plantation management then de
cided that a collection of the storm wa
ters would enable them to obtain a sup
pjy of valuable water, would allow them
to do away with the pumping and open
up fresh lands for irrigation which with
the present price of sugar they would
not feel justified in opening up by
pumping water to them.
It was determined also that It would
be wiser for a separate corporation to
undertake the building of the dam and
for that purpose the meeting was called
this morning. The directors were au
thorized to exchange water rights for
shnres in a corporation to be formed
for the purpose of building the mam
moth dam. The location Is immediately
above the bridge of the Walalua road
over the Kaukonahua stream, ftos

CHICAGO, October 28. The
management of the Harrlman
lines Is preparing to make a
vigorous campaign for increas
ed Oriental trafllc through Port
land. With this end in view
orders will soon be given for tho
construction of four mammoth
ocean-going steamers to ply be
tween Portland and Asiatic
ports. The cost of tho steam
ers will 'be between $2,000,000
and $3,000,000 each, nnd their
tonnage will probably bo as
large as those which are build

BIG TRUST DEED
STAMP DUTY ALONE WAS $3,739,
AND RECORDING FEE OVER $100.
SECURITY FOR $1,230,000.
The Dankvof Hawaii yesterday filed
with Recorder Thrum a trust deed on
which the stamp duty was $3,739 and
the recording fees over a hundred dol
lars. It Is the mortgnge deed of the
Pioneer Mill Company, in security for
Its new bond Issue of a million and a
quarter. The trust, deed Is a most vol
uminous document. By Its terms the
company does "grant, bargain, sell,
(hypothecate, pledge, release, 'remise,
convey, alien, transfer, assign, mort
gage and confirm," all Its interest In
about a hundred and twenty-five pieces
of land held In fee by the company,
over a hundred leases of land, num
erous contracts and all the personal
property of the company .including lis I
mill, railroads, etc. j
The trust deed contains the usual pro.
vision as to the power of a majority of
the bondholders to prevent foreclosure.
This is the provision to which Judge '
Humphreys made objection In a deel- I
sion regal-ding McBryde and other
bonus the Supreme Court overruling his
decision. It Is provided that In the event
of a default In payments of Interest on
the bonds, a majority of the stockhold
ers shall have the power to waive such
default. This Is-the' customary -provision
In trust deeds here, and It Is fol
lowed In the Pioneer's big transaction
in spite of the question raised In the
The bonds are for twenty years, at
six ner cent Interest. The money Is by

HIS VOTE OF 1900 ONLY SLIGHTLY
EXCEEDED, WHILE KUIIIO'S EX
CEEDS DAVID'S AND PARKER'S.
A comparison of the election returns
of this year with those of two year3
ago shows that Wilcox did not quite
hold his own on Hawall'and Kauai, and
polled a slightly larger vote in other
places, while Prince Kuhio got a larger
vote than Sain Parker and Prince Da
vid combined. It would seem that the
Democratic vote went to the juinco this
time, nnd that the attempted fusion
was a failure, or else that the ranks
of the straight Home Rules have been
greatly reduced. The following table

ELLS MRS, JACOBSEN
HE DID KILL HER
THE CONDEMNED MURDERER
SAYS THE COOK ENCOURAGED
HIM DID NOT THINK HIS BLOW
A FATAL ONE.
Beforp she left for San Francisco on
the Alameda yesterday Mrs. Jacobsen,
widow of the murdered captain of the
schooner Fred J. Wood, heard from
Tanbara's own lips his confession that
ho murdered her husband. Since his:
conviction and sentence, Tnnbara
has admitted that he struck the blow
that caused the captain's instant death.
The cook Oto, told him to do It, says
the murderer. This fits tho theory of
Unltod States Attorney Breckons and
others who have investigated the case.
Tanbara's acknowledgment of guilt
was made in the prison, and Mrs. Ja
cobsen was given opportunity to hear
him. It was the first time he had ad
mitted the deed since just after the;
killing, when he admitted It by impli
cation at least. Since then it has been
all denials and on tho witness stand at
his trial he declared that he did not
know how the captain had mot his
According to Tanbara's statement ho
did not Intend to kill Captain Jacob
sen. During the scuffle In the gallery
he struck Jacobsen in the groin, just
as described by the French sailor
More. "I didn't know that a blow In
that part of the body would causa
death," said Tanbara.
Tills Is the explanation the condemn
ed man made to the bereaved woman
who came 2,100 miles to testify at his
trial. He added to It a statement that
Oto had put him up to do the Job. It
Is thought that Oto did in fact so en
courage him, and furnished him with
the knife for the deed. Oto Is not
reachable by the law, however, as the
testimony of the condemned murderer
Is not to be received In court.
No appeal has been filed in Tanba
ra's case vet. The defense has ten days
from the time of sentence within which,
to make a move.
