Which it' is Thought iWill Help Matters Out The Jud ges at Work, The circuit Judges and Chief Justice Frear had conferences yesterday re garding the difficulties in the new Jury law. The fact that thero was no way provided In the bill to put It in effect -until 1905 appears to have sllpped'past Judges and lawyers galore. "It was a case of too many cooks spoiling the broth, I think," said Judge Roblnsos, "and if ono or two men hod had all the -work to do, the bill might have been 'better, under a Washington decision found yesterday by Judge De 'Bolt, I think we have authority to consider the positions of jury commissioners vacant, and appoint at once when the new act goes into effect, and therefore we can have the hew system working by 'Jan uary 1, 1904, instead of 1905. In the meantime the Judges may be able to draw Juries for the September term." The. Jury act was presented by the Bar Association, and was read by the members of the Judiciary generally, but no one appears to have noticed the troublesome sections which postpone for such a long time Its practical ap plication. A provision allowing action by Judges and clerks under certain cir cumstances was lnserced by Judge De "Bolt, when the act, as It stood then, ' provided for the drawing of Juries by the supervisors of the counties. The circuit Judges will appoint jury commissioners after the act goes Into effect, under the legal theory that, though the offices have never been fill ed, there Is a vacancy In them now, and the commissioners may take office at once ar.d draw Juries, thus providing Juries under the new system for the year 1904.

Nado, a Japanese sailor aboard the steamer Helene, narrowly escaped death this morning while helping to discharge stock from the steamer at the cattle pen. The Helene had 81 head of fine fat steers from the Parker Ranch aboard. The native and Japanese sailors were busy putting the slings around the bodies of the cattle. In order that the stock could be lifted up by the donkey I engine and slung onto the cattle land ing close to the Railway wharf. A big I steer much wilder than the rest was landed, but Instead of getting into the I pen with the others that had been put ashore, It jumped over the steamer's rail onto the boat again. There was a wild scramble when the sailors saw the steer come over the 1 rail. The Japanese did not get out of the way soon enough, for the animal rushed forward and knocked him down on the deck. To the officers and oth ers on the main deck and about other places of safety aboard the vessel. It seemed certain that the man would be gored to death. The steer tossed and rolled him about the deck. Once Its horn ripped his scalp open. The man I was unable to regain his feet. He was completely at the mercy of the Infu riated beast. In a frantic effort to kill the man, the steer tossed him over the covered hatch Into a corner where It was Im possible for the steer to follow,. The steer then turned away after a few In- ' effectual attempts to reach Its victim. The Japanese was dragged away by I other sailors to the upper deck out of the way of the steers.

BEATEN TO DEATH WITH A BIBLE A KAHUNA IN PUNA TRIES TO CAST OUT DEVILS WITH A FATAL RESULT. HILO, April 29. A case in the district court of Puna attracted considerable atentlon In that district last week and resulted in the defendant being bound over to the Grand jury on the charge of manslaughter. The victim In the. case was a patient of Dr. Holland, the government physl clan of the district. The man's rela tives clandestinely engaged the ser vices of the kahuna who immediately ordered, a discontinuance of remedies prescribed by the haole physician. The man's condition was serious, he was too weak to sit up and the Kahuna de clared him afflicted with red devils and proceeded to drive them out. He was placed In a sitting position and beaten over the head with a bible. The wife of the victim was thorough ly alarmed over her husband a condl Hon and was in dread of the Kahuna so that when she was commanded to beat the patient she complied. After an other beating by the Kahuna the man died. The Kahuna was arrested and In a preliminary hearing before Judge Ka raau 'ho stated that the man had devils in him and he was following the Ins tructions In the blblo relative to casting them out. Asked to tell how he knew the patient was possessed of devils he replied that his general appearance proved "the fact. He had red eyes was xestless and his hair stood on end.

Three witnesses were examined and each one corroborated the testimony re lative to harsh treatment. Judge Ka mau held the man In bonds In the sum of $500 on the charge of manslaughter to appear before the grand Jury. AT THE SIGN OF THE DINNER. LAHAINA, May 1.

MICA TROOPS THE CDDNTY BILL IN THE CflUBTS FEDERAL COURTS HAVE THE FINAL SAY AS TO ITS CONSTITUTION-. AL1TY WHAT THE ORGANIC ACT SAYS REGARDING PUBLIC INS TITUTIONS AND THEIR CONTROL BY THE PUBLIC WORKS DE Attorney General Andrews la In the pleasing position of a lawyer who Is able to study a case and select which side he wants to appear on, In the mat. ter of the settlement of questions aris ing about transfers of public property to the new board of Public Institutions. Preparations are being made to submit the questions involved to the Supreme court, but so far there Is no ono to appear In defense of the bill. "It Is possible that R. W. Hreckons may be retained to appear for the bill" said the attorney general, "as he drew the act and Is familiar with its provi sions. In that event I may appear on the other side. On the other hand the procedure may be for Superintendent Cooper to appear for himself and the territorial attorney to take the other side." The questions raised for submission to the Supreme court are suggested by the following provision of the Organic act: Section 75. That there shall be a superintendent of public works, who shall have the powers and duties of the superintendent of public works and those of the powers and duties of the minister of the Interior which relate to streets and highways, harbor Improve ments, wharves, landings, water works, railways, electric light nnd power, tele phone lines, fences, pounds, brands, weights nnd measures, fires and fire proof buildings, explosives, eminent do main, public works, markets, buildings, parks and cemeteries, and other grounds and lands now under the con trol and management of the minister of the Interior, and those of the powers nnd duties of the minister of finance ond collector-general which relate to HILO SAW METEOR'S FLIGHT AN EXCEPTIONALLY BRIGHT METEOR IS SEEN FROM VARIOUS POINTS ON HAWAII JUDGED BY THE LENGTH OF TIME BE TWEEN THE EXPLOSION AND THE REPORT, IT REACHED WITH IN FOUR MILES OF EARTH. The brilliant meteor which was re ported from Mahukona last Thursday night appears to have been viewed at various other places about the Island of Hawaii. Hllo saw It and the people along the Hamakua coast also viewed the wonder. Perhaps the best view of the meteor was that had by Captain Nicholson and others on the steamer Helene when that vessel was lying at Ookala Thursday morning. The meteor suddenly made Its ap pearance In the heavens about 6 o'clock The meteor was most brilliant. So bright was It at first that the eye could scarcely, bear the bright glare from It. The meteor appeared at about the 80 degree point In the heavens and de scribed an- arc of about 17 degrees, ac cording to Captain Nicholson's calcu lation. The head of the meteor resembled the nozzle of u hose and from the head sputtered little tiny rays of light. The course of the meteor resembled a gild ed shaft of lightning. ' The following account of the occur rence Is given by the Hllo Tribune. Many Hllo people were nwakened at 5.30 Thursday morning by a thundering roar, supposed general to have been a thunder clap or the rumble of an earth. ANOTHER OVERDUE ARRIVES.

No portions of the aerolite were seen to strike the earth or sea. Mrs Kuhns of Kaumana saw the phenome non. He says It was a ball of fire two feet In diameter describing an arc over the city and falling toward the sea. When apparently lower than ordinary clouds It exploded leaving a great cloud of smoke, which remained visible for several minutes. It was about one minute from the time that the smoke appeared when a long thundering deto nation was heard, Sound travels 1112 feet per second, therefore the celestial visitor wa3 not more than four miles distant at most when friction heat caused Its extinction.
