CRUSHED
TO DEATH
HORRIBLE DEATH OF A YOUNG
HAWAIIAN NEAR KALIHI PUMP
ING STATION THIS MORNING.
Charlie Murray, seven years old and
part-Hawaiian,' met a horrible death
about 10:30 o'clock this morning near
the Kallhl pumping station, being run
over and crushed by a steam-roller In
charge of. the fireman, Kama.
Charlie, with a lot of other small
boys, as has been their custom for
some time, was hanging on behind the
steam roller, considering it a lot ot
fun. In some way he slipped while
hanging on in the rear and while the
engine was reversing. The left rear
wheel passed over his head and shoul
ders, crushing the body beyond all
recognition. Charlie had been repeat
edly warned by the crew of tho engine
to stay away, but he paid no atten
tion to the warnings.
Sheriff Iaukea, Deputy Sheriff Jar-
rett being busy elsewhere, went out
to the scene of the accident immedi
ately and impanelled a coroner's Jury
which will meet tonight.
No blame Is attached to the fireman
who was in charge of the steam-roller
at the time. Ie could not keep a look
out In both directions while he was
handling the lever. The engineer was
away from the machine at the time.
Charlie Murray lived In Morris lane,
near the scene of the accident.
UP TO CONGRESS
SAYS THESECREIARY
WILL STRONGLY URGE THAT
COASTWISE SHIPPING RULES BE
ABOLISHED HERE.
Expectations of some peoplo that
Secretary Straus after visiting here
would make an order doing away with
the coastwise shipping regulations
which prevent foreign steamers from
doing business between here and the
coast, are not to be realized. The
secretary regards the matter as one
for Congress and not for an order by
the executive department.
When asked today If the modifica
tion of the coastwise shipping law re
lative to foreign vessels came directly
under his Jurisdiction, and if he was
going to give the relief asked by the
citizens of the Territory before his
departure for tho mainland the secre
tary replied: "I wish to say that that
matter is for Congress to decide but 1
will also say to the people here that 1
will do every thing In my power aud
will use all the influence I can bring
to bear to have the relief given that is
asked."
Prompt attention given to all plan
tation brders as well as courteous
treatment to local orders Is the secret
of K. Yamamoto's Immense trade. Tel.

ACK FROM
THE COAST
FIFTY PORTUGUESE WHO LEFT
FOR CALIFORNIA RETURN ON
ALAMEDA TODAY.
In the Alameda's steerage today re
turned half a hundred Portuguese men,
women and children, who went from
these islands to seek their fortunes in
California. They have had their expe
rience and are returning to Hawaii, as
sisted by local capital, to remain.
Some, during their stay on the main
land, developed considerable world
polish and are bringing It home in
layer-cakes to pass around among
their less privileged friends.
As one young Portuguese came off
the gangway he was greeted In Portu
guese by a Honolulu boy.
"Aw, talk English, can't you," said
the prodigal. He had learned English
since his departure.
The Portuguese found California a
failure, as a place for them to settle
In, and their experiences will probably
do much to put an end to the Portu
guese exodus from here.

Fifty-four years at sea. curing fovti
cn" of I which he was a commander u'lt'
transported over one iiunurcd uioj
sand passengers, with the splendid rec
ord ot never having met with an acci
dent while in command, is tho record
of Captain K. Van Oterendorp, who is
in Honolulu today visiting his grand
daughter, Mrs. E. A. Berndt.
"I made up my mind," said Captain
Van Oterendorp to a representative of
The Star this morning, "that when 1
passed my seventieth year I would re
tire from tho sea. It was about then
that Spreckels put on tho big new boats
tho Sierra, Sonoma and Ventura and
ho wanted me to take one of them. 1
felt fit and I wanted one of the new
boats, so I told Spreckels that I would
take the Sonoma for a couple of years,
but no longer. He said I was still a
young man as far as ability and energy
was concerned, and I felt that he was
right, but I was getting along in years
and I thought It would be better to
leave tho water at 72, not wanting to
fall down on duty like an old dray
horso in harness. So for the past four
or five years I have been doing nothing
I have put seventy-six years behind
me."
Captain Van Oterendorp arrived in
Honolulu this mornlnc In the O. S. SI

Blx years the commander. Before
that the captafn was master of the
