A Sudden Death Personals
Two sudden deaths from heart dis
ease have occurred here within a
month. The last one was a man
named John Ii, in the employ of the
Union Mill. He left his work to get
a drink of water, and was seen to put
his hand to his side andlie down.
Someone went in a few minutes later
to see what was the matter,and found
Dr. Weddick has been laid up with
two broken ribs, caused by a fall from
The sugar mills are mostly ready to
start up for another season of grind
ing. No great changes have been
made excepting in Union Mill, where
a third set of rollers has been put in
wTith power and the consequent addi
tions to the building.
An innovation has been introduced
in the shape of a chemist from Can
ada, who is to reside on the Kohala
Plantation and search for possible
sources of leakage on such of the
plantations which have combined to
pay his salary. It is to be hoped that
he will have to look long and care
fully before he finds any.
The new bridge in Walaohia gulch
has been opened for traffic. The ap
proaches to it are narrow,particularly
on one side, but nothing more can be
done until the Government supplies
the necessary funds. These approaches
should be fenced as well as widened
It may not be out of place to men
tion the name of Mr. T. S. Kay in
this connection as having shown con
siderable active interest in the build
ing of this new bridge, and rendered
valuable service to the Road Board,
which will undoubtedly be pleased to
see some notice of it in this way.
Aside from the services held in the
Chinese and Anglican churches, the
only public celebration of Christmas
day noticeable, was the display of
banners over a shed built for an ath
letic exhibition in Kapaau, and a
raised platform for special guests,
mostly women and children. The
shed covered a circle that had been
made for the display of Japanese
wrestling, and some dozen or more
nude athletes took their turn at an
exhibition of skill and muscular
strength to the manifest enjoyment
of the surrounding crowd.
The Japanese coffee shop and bil
liard room in that locality has been
transformed into a hospital, under the
auspices of Dr. Yamashita whose resi
dence is near at hand.
There is noticeable stir for the com
ing elections, although it appears that
the inspectors have been appointed.
The various replies in the Gazette
to inquiries about D. L. Huntsman.
furnish amusing reading, and
out various comments. The
fault of his sympathizers appears to
have consisted in bringing him back
to life from a bed of sickness. Perhaps
he will be able to call to mind the
little story about the snake that a
farmer found freezing by the roadside
and compassionate w lils
bosom to warm back to life.
Mr. and Mrs. C. L. Wight, of Mahu
kona, will celebrate the tenth anni
versary of their marriage at their
house this evening, for which cards of
invitation were issued lal ely. There
will be dancing, a display of tinware
and no end of good things to satisfy
the hungry. May they live to enjoy
many happy returns. A train will
leave Mahukona at 1 a. m. to carry
the guests back to their homes, and
perhaps this brief notice will be as
good as a more complete one written
in the "wee sma hours," when the
eyes are heavy and the head is eager
to feel a pillow after the enjoyments
Cool weather prevails, but no great
amount of rain.
