LOST HIS DOG AND
J . HIV
Superintendent of Public Works Mnrston Campbell this morning
returned from a busy business trip to Hawaii and Maui, per S. B.
The meeting at Hilo relative to the extension of Hilo harbor lines
was most satisfactory, the public evpressing appreciation of tlu
plans as outlined by Major Winslow, U. S. A.
The famous isle known as Cocoanut Island, is to become a public
park, where everybody may find pleasure, listen to the band, and
otherwise seek and pursue happiness.
In le Kula pipe line, Marston Campbell reports that the steel sec
tion, constituting the greater portion of the system, will be under
way so that water will be running in October.
Lieutenant William L. Burchfield, of the United States Marine
Corps, was arrested late last night at his cottage at Waikiki on a
charge of-being drunk and threatening to kill a number of people if
they did not tell him where his dog was.
Lieutenant Burchfield had been
and when he arrived home discovered his greyhound was missing.
Not willing to attempt anything without a weapon he managed to
get his revolver, and went outside. The first person he saw coming
t along the road lie ordered to throw up his hands and held him cov
ered with his gun, at the same time using improper language.
Officer S. K. Kaha, who happened to be walking along- the road,
near the house occupied by Lieut. Burchfield, was suddenly halted,
and was told that if he did not throw up his hands he would be killed.
After the young marine officer had been taken into custody he was
released by Sheriff Jarrett to appear on Monday morning. It is u
most certain that the affair last night will result in Lieutenant
Burchfield being tried by a courtmartial, as this is not the first report
that has been made about his condijcr.
The house occupied by Lieutenant Burchlleld.has been the remark
of the town on account of the revels thaij have taken place, day and
night, in which women were included.

EDITOR STAR: With no Intention
of commenting on any arguments for
or against prohibition, I am unable
to resist the desire to voice a protest
against the publication of such a
scurrilous article as appeared in this
iftbrnfaig's Advertiser. .
A newspaper should above all else
avoid printing In its columns any mat
ter which needlessly insults any class
or body of tho public which supports
it. Tho morning paper in publishing
such a letter as appeared this morn
ing stands sponsor for statements
that deeply insults not only the Irish
as a race, but all- members of the
Roman Catholic, Episcopalian and
Lutheran faiths, whose leaders here It
Indirectly Infers are a pack of "guer
rllas and grafters."
Tho Advertiser has, I have no doubt,
done, a great deal of harm to tho
cause of prohibition by tho abusive
methods It has made use of In Its
campaign. This last effusion Is a
worthy specimen of Its learned argu
ments, and I have no hesitation In as
serting that It will lose more votes
to the cause the Advertiser cham
pions than it has ever gained by all
Mr. Thurston's articles.
