Workmen on the Hamakua ditch have dis covered a desperate attempt to destroy tunnel No. 23, finding large blasts pre pared ready to be set off. From all Indications the discovery was made only just in time. - From what investigation has already been made it is known that a s Japanese laborer, having an imagined grJovance, had bored three holes In the tunnel, filled these holes with heavy blasts of powder, with a view to bringing the roof and walls In and so blocking the passage that much of the work of excavation would have to be done again. The Japanese, evidently made awaro of the discover- of the prepared blasts, made his escape and a careful search is being made for him. Four professional gamblers, George Kaea, Willie VIda, Apollona and Geo. Keklpl were convicted in Judge De Bolt's court this morning on a charge of gambling, arising from a raid made on a gambling joint in the cellar of a building on Beretania street, near Riv er street on August 14. The only wlt nessV for the prosecution, which' "was conducted by Presecuting Attorney "A, M. Brown, was A. P. Taylor of the Ad vertiser staff, formerly chief of detec tives. In the lower court the defen dants were fined $250 each. The Jury was out less than ten minutes. The prosecution proved that when Taylor passed through two small doors and peered down through an opening in the floor, the four defendants and others were grouped about a table and that a dice game of "seven-eleven" was in progress. It was also provon that money was seen upon the table, that dice, were thrown, money taken up and thrown down again. and when Taylor descended the narrow staircase to the cellar the game immediately stopped and the players made a dash for the exit. During the cross-examination of Taylor by attorney AchI for the de fense the, latter asked Taylor if the gamblers were only practising with dice and not actually playing. This query caused a ripple of laughter round the court-room that even spread to the countenance of Judge De Bolt. Willie Vida corroborated the evi dence of Taylor, except that he de clared none of those around the crap table had started to play, but that they were waiting for a lot of Japanese to be rounded up and sent down the cel lari 1 Then the game was to start. He admitted he went there to play, and that there was a "kitty-box" on the table. Prosecutor Brown asked Vlda why he did not play with Kaea, Apo Talks on Wills No. 7.
