"Bill" Urirn'i Venture Tanl Neumann and a Microscope Some- Mystery About O. Arthur Ings, M. I Ilarry Armitage had "one of the biggest houses of the eeason" for an auction sale at the police station Yesterday morninc. The efficient understudy of Auctioneer Morgan had nlentv of amusement out of the session, and his audience was well entertained. There was placed under the hammer Dr. G. Arthur log's surgical instruments and li brary. The outfit was a complete and high-priced one. it went at a sacrifice. One case that was valued at S200 sold for $1G. Several physicians, as well a3 representa tives of the Queen's hospital and Oahu prison, were on hand. There were many other buyers, some of whom bid simply because they could not resist the bargains. Captain "Bill" Larsen, for in stance, put up two-bits for three Bibles, twenty-seven hymn books and a Greek Testament. The chief of detectives does not propose starting a Sunday School, Salva tion Army or gospel tent. He dedicated the hymnals to the use of city jail inmates, took the Bibles home, and presented the Greek Testament to Toma, the Japanese sleuth. Toma was very proud of the volume, and declared at once that he could read from it readily. Paul Neumann was at the auc tion. He carried off in triumph a fine micoroscope. Mr. Neumann denied that it was to be used at Washington in searching for the United States' award in Liliuoka lani's damage claim. The attorney purchased a treatise on color-blindness, and offered to swap books with the detective captain on the basis of a Bible for the scientific work. Captain Larsen refused all negotiations of this character. He says he knows one Bible is good and that three must be more better. Of course. Martin the tailor was in the swim and bid against Frank Mclntyre for a bundle of books. Mclntyre weakened and went in with Oscar White on a trephaning kit. They propose to investigate the heads of some people in town. Martin took a cyclopoedia on "Diagnosis" and four volumes of "Control of Mind Over Matter." Dr. Wood and Mr. Eckart loaded up a phaeton with books and instru ments for the hospital. Dr. Cooper turned a consignment for the reef over; to Jailor Low. Dr. McGetti gan bought for himself, and Mr. Lackland took a lot of goods for the Hollister Company. A Japan ese barber made several purchases. He said he would open a physi cian's business in connection with his tonsorial parlor. G. Arthur Ings, M.D., was an Englishman who seemed quite clever, but was unable to do well here. He left very suddenly, aban doning personal property for many times the amount of his "debts. He even left his diplomap, which are of high grade and from noted institu tions. It has been suggested that Dr. Ings worried until he bolted in sheer desperation. The Police Court Mill. In the District Court yesterday Sam Akiki was fined $ 3, for de serting one of the island steamers. He consented to return to work. Officer Wichart arrested a young man named Fern the other evening for using vulgar language. He failed to make out a case, and the defendant was discharged. Murada and Ieaka, two Japanese, were dismissed on a charge of affray. French Ambassador' Fay. Though the salaries of all the French Ambassadors are the same, 8,000 a year, they receive large sums in addition for their official ex penses. At St. Petersburg the Ambassador is allowed $34,000 a year, at London $32,000. at Vienna $2G,000, at Berlin 20,000, at Constan tinople $18,000, at Madrid 10,000. and at Washington 10,000.

An inquest was held over the remains of Kuhio at the police sta tion yesterday. Marshal Hitchcock conducted the inquiry. Kuhio died at 3 o'clock in the morning in great agony. He was taken ill at 11 o'clock and a couple of friends at tended him. These friends believed that Kuhio had been poisoned. Dr. Cooper made an examination of the body. The post mortem failed to disclose anything out of the ordinary in the ending of the man. Inflammation of the bowels was the immediate cause of death. The derangement of Kuhio's in terior department was caused by indulgence in opium. He did not use the pipe. Kuhio ate the drug. He devoured quantities of it in any shape to be procured. For years he has been an "eater." Lately Kuhio has had frequent and severe attacks of illness. He ate but lit tle and seldom spent a night in bed. Kuhio was on the street Mon day afternoon. The burial was at Government expense. Kuhio lived in one of the filthy hovels in the Smith's bridge neighborhood. Thi8 locality is smelling louder all the time. Kuhio belonged at Makawao, Maui.

It costs no more than the ordinary cold pressed iron nut and dispenses with the use of the lock washers, keys and split pins. This nut is now exclusively used on all the crincipal railroads and street cars lines in the United States. SamDles and pamphlets furnished on aDplication to the undersigned Agent for the Siphon Water Elevator, which is automatic, for irrigation, city supply, farms, etc. This invention as its name indicates is based upon the principle of the siphon known to the Ancients but it is devised in such a manner as to greatly enlarge the field of applica tion. Used until today only for the drawing off of liquids to a lower level, the siphon now becomes an Automatic Water Elevator, which under favorable conditions is en dowed with great powers. In many instances, land situated higher than the irrigation ditch can be irrigated at a nominal expense. The Siphon Elevator is especially adapted fi such conditions, as it can elevate the water from the main irrigation ditch to a higher one, while the waste is available for irrigating the lower levels. The siphon elevators are made of brass and iron in sizes J 0 0 A. ranging in capacity or irom iwo hundred to three million gallons per dav. fc?

Scott, Manager of the Hilo Sugar Company gives the following wonderfu record of the working of the NATIONAL CANE SHRED DER, which was erected by their works at the commence ment of the crop just har vested: "During the past week the Hilo Sugar Company s mill ex ceeded aiiv of its former records by closing the 125 hours grinding with an output of 3001 tons. This is fully 10 ner cent, more than the best work of former vears. 4,The three roller mill being 2G in. by 54 in. and the two roller mill 30 in. by 60 in. The first mill doing this amount of work in an efficient manner and with great ease, compared with work on whole caue, owing to thorough preparation of the cane by the .National Cane Shredder, recently erec ted by the Company. And bv its use the extrac tion has been increased from 3 per cent, to 5 per cent, on all kinds ot cane, and in some cases SO per cent, has been reached; the average being 75 to 7S per cent., according to quality. "I continue to find the megass from shredded cane better fuel than from whole cane. "The shredder has been working day and night for seven montns and tias given me entire satisfaction, having shredded during that time about seventy thousand tons of cane, and a large part of it being hard ratoons. The shredder and engine a renuire very little care or attention." t3Plans and specifications of these shredders may be seen at the office of G. Irwin & Co.
