JAPANESE IS KILLED WHILE BOARDING SHIP Did Not Heed the Warning of Ame rica Mam's Cheif Officer --Was Bound For Home. While boarding tlio steamship Am erica Maru for Yokohama ihocKy after 9 o'clock this morning, Nakamira To radza, a Japanese, slipped from the rail and fell headlong on the deck, striking his head on the sharp corner of a trunk and Instantly breaking hit neck. The chief ofrtcer of the steamship witnessed the accident as did many Oriental patsengers on the after main deck of the America Maru and numer ous stevedores, passengers and offi cials on the wharf. The ship's sur geon was Immediately summoned anil made an examination. Ho found that Toradza had broken two of the ver tebrae of the neck and had fractured the Bkull over the left eye. The coro ner was at once telephoned for and the body, which was placed under a tar paulin on the after hatch while wait ing for the wagon, was removed to tho morgue. Nakamura Toradza was about 33 jeaiH of age and had been In this coun try a little over two and a half years, ns a laborer on a sugar plantation on this Island. He was going homo to Japan, had procured his ticket' and. with one small article of baggage and a number of bottles of soda water "on a string, was stepping aboard the ves sel which was to take him to Yokoha ma when he missed his footing and met a sudden death. Following the' accident there was much excited talk among the Japan ese steerage passengers as to where the responsibility for their fellow countryman's death was to be placed. It Is usual for the Oriental steerage passengers to be put aboard In a great hurijy. There are generally n large number of them and they require con siderable attention from (he ofllcers of the vessel, as there Is always a scram ble In the showing of tickets nnd the getting aboard of baggage. When the Japanese began to gp aboard this mornlng.a broad gangway was lard from the wharf to the rnll of the vessel near the after hatch. At first, theie was no way for Intending passengers to alight on the main deck r from the gangway where It rested on ' the rail, except for them to Jump down three or four feet. Toradza was evidently In a hurry to go aboard for he rushed up the gang way and started to spring to tho deck. The chief officer shouted to him and to others who were following to stay where they were until boxes were procured to form steps from the rail to the deck. Toradza either failed to understand, although the order of tho chief officer was Interpreted by a Ja panese quartermaster, or else Ignored the warning, for, with both hands full of Ills baggage, he jumped. He was hampered by his baggage, however, nnd fell as above reported, breaking his neck. Witnesses other than Japanese pas sengers, say that no one could possibly be blamed for tho nccldent as Toradza ought to have waited until the boxes had been arranged on tho deck. When the doctor was called, the un fortunate man was still breathing, -although he expired within a minute or two. No coroner's Inquest will be held as the America Maru resumed her voyage to the Orient about noon and the cause Determination of Values KIPLING can wrlto a poem on a worthless sheet of paper and make It worth 15,00O.v That's genius.

She brings a full cargo of- general merchandise and, after she has discharged her Ho nolulu freight, will proceed to Kahu lul to load sugar for, San Francisco. The Tamplco salted from Seattle on the 12th Instant, in tlio afternoon, 'go ing to Kochc Harbor. She left Ttocho Harbor on the 14th, occupying Just two weeks on the trip to port. Nasty weather was experienced nil tho way down, no two days having the same weather. The seas were heavy and the winds trcacnerous. The Tamplco, being a sturdy craft, however, suffered no ill effects from the rough weather. She is a likely looking freighter and can stand a great deal. The Tamplco will not go to Ana hola, as did the Eureka. On deck tho freighter brings a con tignment of goods. Including a hearse, for the Townscnd Undertaking Com pany of this city. Between 11 and 12 o'clock today, the police station was telephoned to from the Queen's Hospital. The message was that there was an insane Porto Rl can at the place who should be remov ed at once. The patrol wagon with Oilier Nell sen was at once despatched, to the hos pital. Upon arrival there, the authori ties Informed tho police officer that the Porto Rlcan had made his escape while the message was being sent In. A thorough search of the hospital premises was made but there wns"iio one to be found am) tho police officer got Into tho patrol wagon with tho In tention of going to the police station to report. The wagon went down Punchbowl to King street and thence to the police station. When outside the Judiciary building Officer Nellscn spied the Porto Rlcan 'sitting on the sidewalk and at once arrested him. He will probably be examined this af ternoon or tomorrow morning. The Porto Rlcan had been In the hospital for about a month and It was only within the last few days that he began to show signs of Insanity. He Is now at the police station.

Chief Justice Frear reported to High Sheriff Drown that his place on Tantalus bad been entered and, many articles of value removed therefrom. Lieutenant Leslie of the Mounted Patrol was sent up this morn ing to Investigate and although ho made Inquiries In many different lo calities on Tantalus, ho could find nothing that might lead to the arrest of the guilty party or parties. Judge Frear was up on Tantalus. March 18 nnd at that time, everything was intact. He went up again on Wed nesday and then found that the house had been entered during the Interim. One of the windows had been smashed, the fastening -reached and the placo opened. A Quantity of crockery, sll er plated spoons, knives and forks, a brass lamp, a quantity of canned goods and a lot of other stuff had been taken. Judge Frear was of the opinion that Woods was the man who broke Into tho house but the police, from things they liavo learned about the where abouts ot the negro whllo he was being looked for, do not believe this.

MMln-,l Qitirnr fnmnnnv l.lmltml at the annual meeting of stockhold irs this morning, consented to a new bond Ituuo for the purpose of retiring the .repent bonded Indebtedness together with the floating debt ot the corpora tion. Tho amount was not stated, be ing left for future determination. Ad journment to the call of the president was taken. Everything passed oft harmoniously nt the meeting. No chango was made In officers excepting that George F. Unvle.) retired as secretary In favr of his brother. Tho entire list Is as follows: D. P. R. Iscnberg President. It. F. Dillingham Vice President. F. M Swanzy Treasurer. T. Ciive Dovics Secretary. T. It. Kcyworth Auditor. A. M. McDryde, Albert Wilcox, II. W. T. IMivIs, J. M. Lydgate and W. I). Mcllryde Directors. The annual report In printed form was distributed. It contains a map of the company's property. Manager Wm. Stodart s report occu pies nine pages. His Incumbency criv (-red nine months previous to datn if report. He Bays at the outset: "The past year has been noteworthy In two respects. We havo had excep tionally abundant rains well distribu ted throughout the year, and the weather conditions generally havo been ravorable. On the other hand, labor conditions, until late in tho year, were at, their worst' Tho storm water Bavcd with the res ervoir capacity completed reduced tho pumping to a period of less than thrco months, and Mr. Stodart elves details of the duty performed by the three pumps with their aggregate capacity of twenty-eight million gallons a day. lo onset tne economy In irrigation came abnormal labor conditions which fell with peculiar force on this .ilnntntlnn Attinnrr tin. trvnur nt nn... plantations Btarted after annexation had become assured, the Mcllryde Su gar Company was about the last to In corporato, and had developed but ;t small part ot Its permanent Improve ments when the pinch In labor came. Prices or material and supplies also advanced excessively." Irrigation Equipment. Mr. Stodart. however, reports Im proved conditions the latter part or tho year, with a prospect of 'material reductions in expense the ensuing year. Ho goes into details of about fifteen reservoirs having storage -a-paclty of 481 1-2 million gallons. Tin reservoirs cover 115 acres of land. A contract has been let to build addi tional reservoirs at a cost of $50,000, which will Increase the storage of wa ter by 450 million gallons. Tho rain fall record is analyzed, and on the sub Ject of irrigation the manager con- ciuues: 'With tho reservoirs now arranged for and in process of construction we will have a total capacity of 935 mil lion gallons, so that tho system will need to bo tilled only, say, four times a year. When this large capacity snau navo been reached, it Is our con fident expectation that we will bo prac tically independent of tho pumps In any ordinary year; though they will always be very valuable as a safeguard against unusually dry weather." The Crops. Manager Stodart says the crop of 1900-1901 amounted to 33S9 tons of sugar, exceeding tho estimate by S3 tons. The crop now being harvested he estimates at 8458 tons. That for 1903 Is placed at 12.111 tons and. with the Intention ot planting this year about 1200 acres, the yield for the fol lowing year Is figured at not far short of 15,000 tons from, the new cano and ratoons. Tho now mill at Wahlawa, put In operation on October 8, 1901, has don-.' good work, but owing to shortage ot crystallzcrs and lack of power for the water driven centrifugals, its ouput had not been more than 'soventy-flvo tons a day as tho maximum. In Feb ruary this year tho average extraction had reached 94.07 per cent. In conclusion tho manager recounts the Initial difficulties that had ben surmounted, mentioning the fact that the company bought the greater por tion of Its lands outright, closing with theso words' "With merely a nominal ront to pay (what wo pay Is largely offset by whit wo collect), with light pumping bills, with direct transportation to and from tho Coast nt Honolulu rates and our own railway from tho mill to the har bor, with good and substantial cane lands and favorable, environments for Wells, Fargo & Go, EXPRESS TEL.

The principal Incident of his visit to the MaluUnd, Mr. Hoogs said to a Uulletln reporter this morning, was that he had been un successful in Its main object a matt tcr of private business. "I cannot say that I gained much In formation In Washington," said Mr. Hoogs. "It Is not the easiest place for obtaining Information, and anyway 1 went there only to look around. Still, I met some very nice people there. "I appeared before the Congression al committee on Wilcox's land bill, which Is one of the worst measures you could Imagine for the Islands.

ANSWER RECEIVED BY THE SUB-COMMITTEE .....-"lii Meeting of District Committee Called By Chairman Gear For. 10 o'clock Tomorrow Morn ing in Headquarters. Every member of the Fourth District Committee of tho Republican party should be In headquarters at 10 o'clock sharp tomorrow (Saturday) morning for the purpose of attending to the Im portant business of nominating a can didate from the Fourth District to run for tho Bent In the House of Repre sentatives left vacant by the death 'if Archibald Gllflllan. This Is a very Im portant matter, as tomorrow Is tho last day that an 'application can bu Med on this Island. The sub-committee of the Fourth District Commltteo has been busy for three weeks trying to get a candidate to run on the Republican side and until yesterday afternoon It looked very much ns If their search would ho 111 vain, for thcro did not seem to be any disposition whatever on the part ot the man to accept the nomination: Yesterday, however, the sky brlgiil- ened and the three men who canstltuto the nub-committee found that nt last there was a probability of a candldata. This morning the sky cleared still fur-1 ther and at a little after 11 o clock there was n meeting of the sub-com mittee In headquarters. i I. D.

Mr. narrls was Been this afternoon by a Uulletln reporter anil asked to say something nhout his acceptance of the nomination, luese arc his statu-' ments "I wbb first asked to run yesterday nnd took the matter under advisement until today. This morning, I gave my answer to the xub-commlttco of the Fourth District Commltteo of the He-! publican party. I felt. In making this decision, thnt some Republican should maiio a stanu (or tho party, it would Lo the worst kind of policy to sta'id still nnd let the coming special elec Hon go by default. It Republicans will Just gel In and do their duty, there is ho uoubl whatever In my mind that wt can carry the Fourth District. "Lveryono knows the ulatform and principles of the Republican party nnd every goou uopuullcan knows what they mean. If occasion arises ho should carry them out to the letter. This Is my belief. A man should not be altogether hedged In by the differ ences of opinion that havo arisen. A mans Judgment should bo exercised ot tho proper time. "in the case of questions arising that cause differences of opinion among dif ferent members of the party, a person should he left considerably to his own luugmcnt. "First and foremost, I nm always for good government and I think that the Republican party stands for good gov ernment. Such being tho case, I r.m willing to submit to any ot tho Incon veniences that may bo brought upon me by my action In accepting the nom ination of tho Republican party, fcr the sake of tho welfare of that party. "Every good Republican has certain rlghlfl and privileges, but he should, In my opinion, never lose sight of tho iv ' fne that he also has certain duties to perform. One of these duties is to get In and work for the party as a whole I ur.il to get out and vote at the proper I time. i The executive committee of the Homo Rule Republican party held a . meeting In Foster Hall last night and at that tlmo decided finally on Auguit Dreler as their candidate for Fourth !
