AN OLD RESIDENT
v GOES JOJjIS REST
(From Sunday's Advertiser)
Ono of tho oldest Inhabitants, for
thirty-five years one of Honolulu's
most exemplary citizens, passed to his
long home yesterday, Daniel P.
Eon died at his residence, Emma square,
at one o clock In tho afternoon, aged
79 "years, 2 months and 20 days. An
acute malady supervening the Infirmities
of age which had laid him aside
from business activity for some yearB
caused the patriarch gradually to fade
away to the -end. Ho leaves his wife
surviving him after a long and happy
union, together with a brother, I. B.
Peterson, and three children, namely:
E. Wells Peterson of J. A. Hopper &
Co., Ltd.; Dr. Chas. A. Peterson, superintendent
of the Insane Asylum,
and Mrs. A. V. Gear, besides many
grandchildren. The late Arthur P.
Peterson, last Attorney General under
the monarchy, was his son.
Daniel P. Peterson was born at Plymouth,
"Mass., July 10, 1826, and was
married there. He came to tho Hawaiian
Islands In 1870. From an ac
countant he became a partner In tho
ship chandlery firm of A. W. Pelrce &
Co., whose business was some years'
ago acquired by the I.-I. S. N, Co. At
the bpenlng of tho Oahu Railway &
Land Co.'s lino In 1889 Mr. Peterson
was Its freight agent, but the failure
pr ils eyesight caused him to retlro
from that position In 1893. Slnco then
he lived In retirement at his home on
Emma square, where ho had resided
since 187S. Only a few days aco he
sold the old homo and removed to a
house directly across the square.
Having well settled religious convictions
and being naturally of a quiet
disposition, Mr. Peterson was a model
man In his walk and conversation. He
was a deacon In the Bethel church congregation
when that body amalgamated,
with Fort-street church to form the
present Central Union church.
Tho uneral will take place from
Central Union church to Nuuanu cemetery
at 3 p. m. today, Rev. E. B.
Turner conducting the services.

HONEY FREECY FLOWS
III HAWAIIAN CAPITOL
W. It. rrazpe, tho government electrician, was seen going homo Saturday afternoon
with a bucket of juicy honoycombs. There wore others seen the same tinvo
packing off containers of the ncctarlous product of the honey bee.
It nil canio from the Capitol. That docs not signify, howover, that Governor
LCartcr nnd Secretary Atkinson had recoived a hooknpu nnd divided tho gifts of
good things from p. grateful populaco among tho subordinate ofBcials. Tho
honeycomb came from nn original depooit in tho very structure of tho buildings,
rhieh had to bo partly wrecked to get at tho storo of tho bees." y
Some years ago the local papers told of bees swarming in tho Capitol. In
tho Into John Ilassinger's chief clerkship there, tho clerks In tho Public Works
office- frequently because uneasy at symptoms oflrritatibn in the swarm of bees
clustering just overhead nbout tho veranda pillars. Different times since, Chief
Clerk Clarence M, Vhite has been moved by tho buzzing of the industrious insects
to ntto.mpt a poem thnt wojild tnko tho place of Dr. Watts' classic "How
doth tho llttlebusy.bce," etc.
Lately whnt seemed to be a leak dovcloped in nn miglo of tho coiling of tho
lower veranda, nnd when the Capitol carpenter inspected it ho found tho liquid
making tho stain to bo of a viscid character. Then it wns decided to inako a
tliorough examination. Accordingly nn opening wns made in tho floor of tho
upper veranda, behind tho Secretary's office and directly over whoro tho bees
wero hoticod active.
An astonishing exhibit was revealed. Between tho floor abovo 'nnd
below a space of flVo feet squnro wns packed IncheB deep with
honoycomb. A distribution of tho sweet deposit, wns forthwith declared nnd
hence it came that Mr. Frazco and others went homo Saturday
with honey in tho comb. One of tho native employes had some ltnowledgo of
handling bees, hence tho spoil.was secured wlthout'nny commotion such as might
have occasioned the turning in of the riot cnll W tho Gnmowoll.

Corbln, commanding the Phil

on this point, he says, calls for
r!C treatment- Tno General then lays
down theso principles r
'The moment an officer begins liv
ing beyond his means he should be sub
jected to discipline. Young ..officers
Joining the service should bo admon
ished that for them only the slmnlo
life Is possible. The moment un officer
Is possessed with nn uncontrollable, desire

should 'separate himself from tho

There was no rest for the litigants
In the Parker Ranch case yesterday,
the court sitting both morning and
afternoon. Fred Wundenbcrg was on
tho stand, Magoon finishing the direct
examination In t,he course of tho
Macoon referred In nn nttomntari (- Va

produced correspondence In which
he suggested n board of three to man-ago

found "Insufferable lecnl ob
jections" ns n, delegation of the
Kinney, claimed thnt all tho correspondence
was not In, and later produced
a letter from Carter In which
tho writer specified that It was only
his troubles with Sam Parker that were
under ndvlsemcnt, and that he declined
Wu'ndenberg'B proffered Intervention
In tho renfoval proceedings
brought by J. S. Low as next frjend.
Upon cross-examination thero was
sbme fierce spnrrlng over Kinney's
scorching questions. At times Magoon
would interpose lengthy objections, and
nt other times the witness himself
would flatly decline to answer .until
Kinney suggestively called for the
bailiff and the court Interposed a gentle
but effective mandate.
Tho battle began ove Wundenbcrg's
statement that A. W, Carter was not
acting in the best interests of tho
minor In forcing a partition or salo
of the ranch. It was the witness's
Idea ihat tho ranch was too valuable
to sell, and that under present conditions
It would not bring Its true vnluc.
It was when Kinney began to detvo
Into tho possibilities of the partners
bidding against each other to securp
posaostlou that Interesting financial
It appeared that not only had tho
guardian kept the minor's share freo
of debt but had accumulated a fund
of $250,000 aguinst the contingency or
a sale, while Sam Parker's account
showed an equal amount on the wrong;
side of the ledger. Tho witness thought
that a fl'ale under these circumstances
looked like an, attempt to do up Sam
Paiker, but admitted that so far ns
the minors Interests wero concerned
no better time could have been chosen.
Kinney brought out that, at no tlmo
before Parker had ousted Carter as
mannger and Bent Eben Low up to
take possession, had Carter taken advantage
.of the relative flnnnctat conditions
to force n sole, nnd naked If
Parker was not In better shapo now
than at many times during thnt period.
Wundenberg strenuously objected to
answering the question, nnd when compelled
by the court said he thought
Parker worse off now than at any tlmo
before the fight was precipitated.
.The witness wns then asked If ho
knew why the partition suit, which
appeared to be so advantageous to
the minor at thu particular Juncture,
wns not being pressed. He replied that
he understood it was restrained by
injunction by this court. He was shown
the motion nqd affidavit of Magoon on
which the Injunction Issued, and to the
question as to whoo Interest Magoon
wns acting In when he procured tho
Injunction said he supposed he was
nctlng In Sam Parker's Interest, to
which Kinney rejoined, "Well, we don't
knnw but you're right."
Kinney then attacked the subject of
finances from another side, endeavoring'
to Hocuro nn ndmlsslon that Carter had
noted prudently In lining his war chost.
Instead of Indulging In nllho expenditures
Involved In ' Eben Low s
lonijthy " catalogue of needed Improvements.
Tho witness disclaimed any
knowledge of what wns needed on tho
rnnch, stating that tho complaints on
that score In the suit wero not his complaints.
His 6nly grievance was that
he had neither been consulted In regard
to tho management nor allowed
to shorn In tho control nnd commissions.
He ndmltted thnt ho had suggested
to Carter that 3 1-2 per cent,
was too little, and that they should
charge B per cent, and divide It between
Wundenbcrg did not regard 3 1.2 per
cent, as excessive and both ho and
Magoon seemed surprised when that
was read from the complaint 'as ono
of the charges against Carter.
On tho subject of consultations Kinney
referred Io several occasions when
Carter consulted directly with Sam
Parker, but, with ono exception, tho
witness had had no knowledge of these
conversations. He maintained that ho
should have been consulted as tho
under Parker's trust deed, and that
ho had been Ignored.
