Aerolite Comes (Jlnso to Knrlli lie
fore It Hums Out.
Many Hilo people were awakened nt
5:30 Thursday morning by n thundering
roar, supposed generally to have been n
thunder clap or the rumble of nn earth
((tiakc. Those who were up early, how
ever, were privileged to see the brilliant
cause of the morning disturbance. It
was the flight of n meteor, wlficli came
so close to earth that the blazing aerolite
left n trail 6f fire hundreds of fetf. iu
length behind it. Its velocity nnd the
.increasing density of the atmosphere ns
it tienrcd the earth produced such con
suming hent Hint, when senrely n mile
nbove the earth it exploded, leaving a
cloud of smoke which floated over the
city. No portions of the nerolilc were
seen to strike the earth or sen. Mr.
Kuhns of Knutnann saw the pkenomenon.
He says it was n ball of fire two feel in
diameter describing nn nrc over the city
and falling toward the sea. When ap
parently lower than ordinary clouds it
exploded leaving n grcnt cloud of smoke,
which remained visible for several min
utes. It was about one minute from
the time that the smoke appeared when
a long thundering detonation was heard.

J. U. Smith, Unco U. S. Coininls
sloncr nt Dycn Called to Stnnd.
In response to nn order from the At
torney General of the United States, j.
U. Smith has been summoned to Hono
lulu to testify iu regard to the Alaskan
boundary dispute between the United
States and Great Britain. Mr. Smith
leaves by the Kinau today and does not
know whether his mission will take hint
to Washington dr not.
Mr. Smith was United States Commis
sioner nt Dyea and Skagway during the
Klondike rush, and as such exercised
magisterial jurisdiction at the furthermost
inland point claimed by the United
States, nnd consequently will be able to
mnterinllv strengthen this country's con
tention in the noted dispute. Priority of
possession will be one of the main points
to be determined by the International
Commission nnd Mr. Smith's testimony
will be of special importance on this
phase of the question. Mr. Smith with
other United States officials were sta
tioned iu Southeastern Alaska in July,
1897, and ousted British officials who
were attempting to locate nt the Coast,
and prevailed upon them to remove their
"Custom house tents" to a place beyond
the disputed line. Subsequently for mu
tual and tempornry convenience the Do
minion customs officials were permitted
to locate at n narrow pass 011 the summit
of the range, where they collected duties
under protest from American citizens.

Judge Kamau, District Magistrate at

Jury under bonds of $500 n Hawaiian Ka

cast out devils iu the case of a sick man,
resulting in the extinguishment of the

handled in many ways, being beaten with
particular vigor over the head with a
volume of the Holy Scriptures. The Ka
huna had such power iu the household
that the wife of the deceased was obliged
to join iu the torture that left her a
At his examination before Judge Ka

ground for objection to the deportment
of his men. "If our boys nre ever called
upon to go into active service," said Mr.
