2 HAWAIIAN GAZETTE: TUESDAY, JANUARY 16,
LATE NEWS FROM HAMAKUA,
Interesting News and Notes From
T. H. DAVIES' STORE TO BE CLOSED.
Geng- of Forty Japanese Attack a
Tounc rortugueio tad TTlio Ilad Ilad
a How TVlth One of Their
Ilonse Broken Into.
Hokokaa, Jan. 11. A prominent
royalist is in town, but too late to
politically convert Hamakua.
A new store came into existence
Buddenly last week, but as it is a
Japanese concern, a short life and
speedy close up is what is expected.
A rumor has reached us that T.
H. Davies &, Co., of Honolulu, intend
to close their store here. The
Paia Btore is already closed up.
The rain keeps aloft yet, only high
winds are prevailing and at 11 and
12 o'clock during the day, it is almost
a gale. The sea, too, is heavily
agitated and is in such a condition
that it will keep vessels from
landing their cargoes for a few
A Paauilo man reported the other
day that the Paauilo well is entire
ly finished. It reached a depth of !
228 feet and an abundant supply
of fresh and pure water was struck.
A two-inch pipe is used for the
pumping and it is said will yield
170,000 gallons of water in twenty-four
hours. A six-inch pipe was
sent for, and upon arrival will take
the place of the two-inch one now
The Paauilo Star correspondent,
in a late number of that paper,
brags that the Star is the only
paper taken at Paauilo. Now, that
is not se, because a person well
posted there states that there are
only two subscribers to that paper,
while the rest all take the Advertiser.
No doubt the Star is a good
paper, one hundred times better
than that royalist organ, the Bulletin,
but the Advertiser is the best
of all and can't be beat.
A Chinaman was caught smoking
opium last week and arrested.
Johnny was found guilty and sentenced
to pay a fine of $60 and
$3.50 costs, besides a term on the
Volcano road. The last took him
Mr. v. H. Kickard, ex-manager
of the Honokaa plantation, is in
town and intends staying a few
weeks. Reports everything quiet
The mail by the Kinau, which
arrived here on Sunday morning,
was small and not important.
Mr. Otto Eose, Hilo's young and
only tinsmith is in town. While
here he is staying at Sheriff
He reports the roads from
Laupahoehoe towards Hilo in verv
bad condition, as a consequence of
the recent wash outs. On the other
hand, he reports Hamakua roads,
from Ookala to Kukuihaele, as good
as any in the country.
The following were summoned to
appear in Hilo at the hearing of
the isroadfelt shooting case: Dr.
Greenfield, Charles Oleson, as witnesses,
It will be remembered that
Broadfelt was an overseer in Kukuihaele.
He had an altercation with
a number of those half-civilized
and quarrelsome beings. They
one and all made for him, with the
intention of making short work of
it. He shot the foremost, and the
others retreated. The wounded
man had a close call to death, but
he lives yet, though pronounced a
cripple. The case had its hearing
last Monday, in Hilo, and the verdict,
as expected, was "not guilty."
He and the others all came back
Lala, a notorious native character
of Kalopa, was brought up on
the 10th, charged with stealing a
watch and chain from a Chinaman.
He was tried the same day and
pronounced "not guilty."
There is another Japanese trouble
in Paauilo, but this time it was
only forty or more cowardly Japanese
after a Portuguese lad of about
eighteen summers. The lad had
had an altercation with a Japanese,
which ended in a hand to hand
fight, in the end of which the Japanese
was entirely beaten. The
next day everything went quiet until
the evening, wheu forty or more
Japanese, part of them masked, attacked
a house where they knew
the boy was. They broke into the
house and found the boy alone.
They at once tried to lay hands on
him, but he punched and kicked
until over twenty of them had got
a fair share. "When he saw it was
getting too warm for him he got behind
the large family bedstead, and
lifting up its mattress, spread,
sheeting and all, hurled them at
the astonished invaders. Before
they recovered he had escaped by a
window into the back of the house,
but there he found another band of
four or five men, and another combat
ensued. It did not take much
time for the sturdy Portuguese lad
to get clear of them, leaving them
all "hors de combat."
Those whom he recognized
through the masks were arrested
yesterday, but two cannot be found.
The case is to have its hearing
before District Magistrate Edwin
Thomas today at 10 o'clock.
The Kinau mail leaves at 9 A. m.
FOR OFFENSE OR DEFENSE.
Republican Senators Combine for
Action on all Political Questions.
The Republicans of the Senate
are preparing to make the life of
the President miserable during the
coming months, and have already
perfected an organization to that
end. A caucus was held last Monday,
at which it was determined
that Senator Sherman, the chairman,
should appoint a committee
to take in hand the active work of
looking out for the political phase
of all legislation and securing consolidated
votes on every question
of general import. According to
this arrangement Senator Sherman
has announced the committee as
follows: Senators Allison, Hale,
Aldrich, Cullom, Dolph, Mander-son,
Washburn, Quay and Dubois,
who undoubtedly represent the
greatest political cleverness in the
Senate. Senator Allison is chairman
and Senator Dubois secretary.
Among other duties this committee
will keep a watchful eye upon the
elections in the States that affect
the Senate, and will see that there
is in each case a proper Republican
organization. It is designed to hold
a meeting of the caucus as soon as
possible after the full light has
broken in upon the darkness that
now surrounds the Hawaiian situation,
when the attitude of the Republicans,
as foreshadowed by the
resolution introduced by Senator
Hoar yesterday, will unquestionably
be found to be one of firm
opposition to the policy of the Administration.
She Objects to Being Locked up
Vina King, whose case was referred
to the Circuit Court for settlement,
created quite a scene when
taken out to the prison Friday.
As soon as she was well inside the
jail yard she threw herself on her
face on the stone floor and tore her
hair. She scratched her face until
the blood flowed, and declared that
she would rather die than be locked
up in the prison. After rolling in
the dust for a while she was locked
up in a cell to await her trial.
When Vina was taken from the
Police Station she wept bitter tears.
It is said that she has transferred
her vagrant affections from Washington
to a turnkey in the Station
House, and was heart-broken at
the thought of leaving.
The Austrian Guns.
Among the exhibits forwarded
by the Hawaiian Exposition Company
to the Midwinter Fair by the
S. S. Monowai were two of the Austrian
field pieces selected by the
late King Kalakaua during his tour
around the world in 1SS1. The
battery arrived here in July, 1883,
and the Government paid $15,000
for them. The carts, shells and
other things pertaining to the battery
were also sent. At the Fair
ttie guns will be mounted on carts
with four horEes each.
These guns are said to be the
ones which Robert W. Wilcox used
in his insurrection of 1889. As these
guns are unknown in America, it is
supposed that they will arouse interest
among military men. They
were made by Krupp and are of
the breech-loading pattern.
The Vancouver Line.
London, Dec. 25. Mr. J. H.
M. P., in an article in the
Westminster Review, says that the
Huddart-Parker scheme has powerfully
impressed politicians and
traders on both sides that an im-imperial
subsidy to the Vancouver
mail service will help to federalize
the British postal service.
The Hawaiian ex-queen appealed
to the Provisional Government for
protection and it has been granted.
Against whom is she to be protected?
Not by the Provisional Government
against the Provisianal
Government. Possibly against President
Cleveland and other well-meaning
royalists at Washington
who have apparently been endeavoring
to force her into au untenable
and desperately dangerous position.
There are twenty-one leper suspects
now at the Kalihi Receiving
Station awaiting examination.
