OPIUM BR01 EXPECTED, THREE PRISONERS GONE, They Scale the Station Honsa Wall in Broad Daylight. The 3Ilowera' Stoutwayit Io Not Like I'rl'on Life Thought To lie Illdloc In the Lumber. The police are busily engaged in an attempt to locate three men who escaped from the police etation yes terday afternoon about 2 o'clock. They are three of the stowaways that were put ashore by the cap tain of the Miowera. The men were beincr held here awaiting the arrival of the Warrimoo to b? re turned on that vessel to British territory. Since the men have been in cus- todv they have been allowed the freedom of the jail yard and were not treated as though thev were prisoners. Yesterday afternoon they all sought cover in a cell to escape the rain, and while thev were talking three of the men decided to leave the confine3 of the yard. A good opportunity eoon presented itself and it did not take them long to take advantage of the chance. The turnkey left the yard to visit the Marshal's otiice, and while he was absent, the men lifted a plank and placed it against the prison wall nearest to the Cartwright building. It took them but a moment to reach the top of the wall and, after running over a roof or two, emerged on Kaahumanu street. While they were making prepar ations for the flight, their compan ions shielded theai by seizing two native boys, who were in the yard, and running them into a cell to prevent any outcry on their part. The escapes are but thinly clad and are penniless. It 13 thought that they are hiding in the lumber pile3 on the waterfront and the po lice are confident that they will be etarved out. When the seven men were land ed here they complained bitterly of the treatment they received on board of the vessel. " They claimed that they were placed in a coal bunker and were kept locked up for eight days. According to their story they were allowed but little food. The captain's side of the story is yet to be heard. ... DISTRICT COURT CASES. Two Street Car Employees Fined for Ill-Treating a Horse. The charge of seditious libel against Edmund Nome, editor of the Holomua, was called in the District Court on Wednesday morn ing and, after a little legal sparring on both sides, the case went over until tomorrow morning. Nome will be defended by Paul Neumann and Charle3 Creighton. Attorney General Smith will probably con duct the prosecution. J. P. Bowen was called on a a charge of arson. The charge wa3 read but the defendant did not plead. By mutual consent the hearing wa3 postponed until next Tuesday. C. W. Ashford, Bowen's attorney, has not succeeded in rais ing bail for his client, although the sum wa3 reduced from 2000 to $1000. Ex-Police Officer Lindsay's ex amination on a charge of extortion also went over until next week. Manager Paine, of the Tramways and H. Morton and Frank Tavesr two employees, were examined on a charge of cruelty to animals. The manager was found not guilty while Morton and Taves were fined $20 each. They noted an appeal. m Ah Loy in Jail Again. The notorious Chinese thief, Ah Loy, was arrested again yesterday by Captain Larsen. He wa3 re leased from prison but three weeks ago, and it seems that as soon a3 he wa3 liberated he was at his old tricks again. For the last two weeks a number of daylight rob beries have been committed in Chinatown, and the facts point to Ah Loy as the guilty man. Cantain Larsen feels confident that he can convict the thief on at least three charges of larceny. Water to Give Away. The present rainstorm puts at rest for some time, any fear3 of another drought. All three reser voirs in the Xuuanu Valley are filled to overflowing, and a great deal of water is running to the sea. On Wednesday night a portion of a dam gave away nearly flooding John Grace's place in the valley. Superintendent Brown went to the rescue and had the break repaired before any great damage was done. Advertiser 75 cents a month. A Man Who Is an Enigma to Most People. He Lstidetl on Maui Lat Time This Trip He 1VI1I l'ay a Viit to the Garden Itlaud. The custom house people expect another visit from AOpium Brown." It is said that the strange individ ual will soon be landed at Kauai, for reasons best known to himself. Brown is an enigma to most peo ple. He has a way of turning up at odd times, and no one knows just where he comes from. On his last visit he was refused a passport when he wished to depart, but the matter was finally arranged by the aid of a lawyer. He was forced to tell when and where he landed, and in hi3 Janswer stated that he came down on a whaler and was put ashore on Maui. Brown wa3 arrested here about two years ago on a charge of smug gling opium, but the authoritie3 could not make the charge stick. Brown was traveling on an island steamer, and in some manner he lost his pocketbook. The purser of the steamer found it and after an examination he decided to hand it over to the custom house authori ties. The book contained some private letters and several promis sory notes signed by a Chinese merchant on Maui. The suppo sition was that Brown had sold a load of opium to the merchant. but nothing could be proved against him. BBOWNIES WW CO The essence of all that is ridicul ously funny and happy.

Scott, Dear Sir: In reply to yours in relation to the "Avery" Stnbble Diggers and Fertilizer Distributors. I would say that I have been using I received them, and am highly pleased I find them specially adapted to the toon stools, and they may be used to great advantage either before or alter the Fertilizer Distributors, thereby putting the rattoon fields in the very best condition for a rapid growth. They are a light draft machine, and 1 would recommend them to any plantation owner. The Fertilizer Distributor is a great labor saving machine, and I find that I shall need one more to fill our requirements here. I remain, yours respectfully, (Signed) H. Deacon, Manager for Pepeekeo Sugar Co. Wainaku, Hilo, Aug. 9, 1894. Mr. E. R. Hexdrt, Honolulu. Bear Sir: In reply to your enquiries regarding the working of the "Avery" Stubble Diggers and Fertilizer Distributors. I would say that I have been using the Diggers for some months and have dug some eight hundred acres of stools with them, thoroughly loosening the soil in and about the roots, thus giving them an excellent opportunity for many more shoots to come forth than usually do. And I find that there is a thicker stand of cane where it has been stubble dug. The machine works in fertil izers on rattoon stools without any further hand labor, mixing them thor oughly with the soil and allowing them to get to the roots of the plant The Fertilizer Distributors I Lave had at work for some time and I have fertilized about four hundred acres with them thus far and they are doing all the makers claim for them, distributing the fertilizers in an even manner on each side of the cane and in whatever quantity desired. They are a good labor saving machine and are doing the work of several men. These machines are of light draft and strongly made and there is nothing liable to get out of order. I can fully recommend these to plantation owners. I remain, yours truly, (Signed) John A. Scott, Manager Hilo Sugar Co. We received by the Alameda a carload of Avery & Son's Implements which include Fertilizer Distributors, Stubble Diggers and Improved Sugar Land Cultivators.

Scott, Manager of the Hilo Sugar Company gives the following wonderful 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 any of its former records by closing the 125 hours grinding with an output of300ftons. This is fully 10 per cent, more than the best work of former years. "The three roller mill being 26 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 cane, owing to thorough preparation of the cane by the National Cane Shredder, recently erec ted by the Company. And by its use the extrac tion has been increased from 3 per cent, to 5 per cent, on all kinds of 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 months and has given me entire satisfaction, having shredded during that time about seventy tnousand tons of cane, and a large part of it being hard ratoons. "The shredder and engine require very little care or attention." t3Plans and specifications of these shredders may be seen at the office of Wm. G. Irwin & Co.
