Maui, Sept. 10, 1S95. The state
of feeling on Maui is feveriBh in
the extreme; every report or rumor
Eets the public pulse wildly
throbbing. There seems to exist
an unBpoken, though deeply rooted,
fear of a cholera outbreak on the
island. News from infected Hono
lulu is eagerly sought from all
sources. Rumors of cholera in
and Hana are of frequent
occurrence, but without the slightest
foundation. It is said that there
are three cases of something resembling
the dreaded disease in
Lahaina, and that two Japanese
from Hamakuapoko were recently
stopped at "Wailuku, the authorities
not permitting them to make
their intended journey to the hottest
town iu Maui.
Then there is an insipient famine
in vogue ; barley has advanced to
$40 a ton, rice to $10 a bag, and
Ko. 1 flour to $2.

in the Lahaina roadstead, and on

Yesterday the steamer Hawaii
touched at Kahului and brought
the report of sixty-two cases and
forty-eight deaths, two foreigners
being included. This steamer

of Hawaii on Monday, the 9th, and
not being allowed to make a land

She takes Honolulu mail today.
During Friday, the 6tb, the ISO

at Camp 4, Spreckelsville, after
being most thoroughly disinfected,

Awana, one of the Belgic's passengers,
states that he knew of but
two Japanese dying on the voyage
one after six days' and the other
after two or three days' sickness.
He is doubtful whether it was
cholera, but says that there was
much vomiting and purging.
It is stated that Lahaina people,
feeling that the warmth and stillness
of the atmosphere are favorable
for an epidemic, refused to
receive freight recently brought up
by the Kilauea Hou. She, however,
landed freight at Olowalu and
then departed for Kaupo,
Hana and Kahului.

An Odessa letter of recent date
eays: One of the oddest vessels
afloat arrived a few davs ago in
Odessa, and is now moored on the!
lower quay. Sho beloDgs to the convent
on Monnt Athos, and is called
The Holy Prophet TJja (Elias). She
is brig ringed, and sails under the
Turkish flag, but a Greek cross is
carried on both mastheads, and she
differs from the ordinary Turkish
ships by her scrupulous cleanness.
The captain is a Jeromonach, a monk
ranking higher than a friar, and all
the sailors are monks or lay brothers;
still they are expert seamen.
The pilot, Father Iraklij
has crossed all the oceans and
zones, sailing around the wide world
since 1866. The entire crew speak
both Russian and Greek. Service on
the ship alternates with worship in
the little church in the forecastle. It
is quite a curious sight to behold
these monks in their long frocks and
sandals climbing up the masts, along
the yard arms, reefing sails, or hanging
almost over the water on the
foremost point of the bowsprit.
The brig brought here a load of
bricks from Constantinople, and goes
in ballast to Mariupol, whence she
will take a cargo of flour, corn, fish
and other provisions, which are to
furnish the supply for the convent
for a whole year.
According to the sailor monk's own
statements The Holy Prophet Ilja is
a smart sailor, and runs 11 knots an
hour in fair wind. She. is 105 feet
long and carries a cargo of 200 tons.

EDMUND GIFFARD INJURED.
Thrown From a 'Rnnaway Horas
Late Saturday Afternoon.
Edmund B. Giffard met with a
painful accident while out riding
late Saturday afternoon. The animal
owned by him is rather spirited
and became unmanageable
while going along Hotel ttreet.
Breaking into a run the horse made
for Carty's 6table, where it i3 kept,
and turned into Richard street at
break-neck speed. When near the
stable the horse 6truck the edge of
the sidewalk near the corner of the
tennis grounds, and eo great was
the tpeed of the animal that it
broke the fence and slid Eeveral
feet into the grounds.
Young Giffard was thrown violently
to the ground, and for a
time appeared to be dangerously
injured. He was bruised about
the head and unconscious when
picked up. Dr. Herbert was sent
for and arrived on the scene in a
few moments. The injured man
was taken to the residence of the
doctor and cared for. Examina
tion proved that no bones were
broken, though the wound on the
head might develop concussion of
the brain. It was an hour or more
before young Giffard became conscious,
and after receiving medical
attention, was taken to the residence
of his brother, W. M.
Giffard, on Beretania street.
It was learned last night that no
serious results will follow the accident,
and the young man will be
able to attend to business in a day
or so. The only injury he received
was a bruise on the side of the
head and several scratches about
The accident was witnessed by
several persons, who rendered assistance
at once and notified his
brother. It was a miracle that the
young man escaped being killed.
The horse was badly scratched
about the body and limb3.
WITHOUT STOPPING WORK.
An nnnsnal, and probably an unprecedented
achievement is reported
from Boston. The art of moving
bnildings has nowattained such advancement
that it is common to shift
a dwelling from one 'site to another
without inconveniencing the occupants.
Bnt it is a more serious mat
ter to handle in the eame way a big
shop in which machinery is in operation.
This, however, has been done
ii ueiung or gearing had been employed
to communicate power from
the engine to the shop, it would have
been impossible to continno
tions. Before the building: was mov
ed, it was tied together with iron
crossrods and underwent the ordeal
without injury. Another building of
the same dimensions (really, a part
of the first), will soon be shifted in a
similar manner. A new power plant
is being erected on the new site, and
will be ready for business before the
old onejs discharged from service.

AX0XV3IOU3 I'OgTEKS IN HAWAIIAN
Preposterous ami Ouliaseoug Statement!
too Good for the Author!
If Found Copy of the Notice.
It has been noticed frequently
that in times such as the present
cholera epidemic, evil-minded and
spitefully inclined natures take
advantage of the occasion to spread
dastardly and untruthful reports
for the purpose of gratifying their
own wicked minds and gaining a
morbid satisfaction from the evil
effects of their actions.
Bright and early Sunday morning
there was seen pasted on the
corner of King and Nuuanu, Ala-kea
and King, Emma and
and on Chaplain street near
Nuuanu avenue, posters written
with pencil in the Hawaiian language.
The one on the corner of
King and Nuuanu was on a telephone
post just a few inches from
the ground. One at the corner of
Emma and Beretania streets had
been removed before the arrival of
the police officers sent out to collect
all that could be found. Following
is a translation of the contents
of the posters :
"Know all men that I, the undersigned,
hereby make public statements
of what has been done among
us, the substance of which is as follows:
"Two living souls were brought to
Makiki cemetery recently for burial ;
their mouths were waxed and hands
bound. They were placed in coflins.
At the burial ground, the coffins were
opened. In one of them a man was
found: in the other, a woman. Both
were alive. They were taken out of
the coffins and cared for and are being
cared for still. At present they are
feeling better. They were questioned
as to the cause of said action. They
answered that they had received such
treatment because they would not
take medicine from the Board of
Health doctor. Oh ! What a pity.
The 'Aloha Aina' committee ought to
keep an eye on this. The coffins were
buried without the souls. (China
boy) H. B. Ikemaka (Eyewitness)."
Up to a late hour nothing had
been learned respecting the author
of the notice.
successfully. The building in question
was three stories high and 175
feet long and built of brick. It was
necessary to move it 300 feet in one
direction and 50 in another. As the
first floor was laid directlv nn tha
ground, of course all the machines in
the basement were taken out; but
everything on the second and third
floor was kept at work. Power was
supplied by a 20 horse power electric
motor on the second floor. This de
rived its current through a wire lead-'
ing to a dynamo in a shed adjoining
the factory. At the start most of the
wire was coiled up, but as the two

apart, the wire unwound. Of course,
