I Informed on The Owner Lote the Opium, hut Were SatUfiei! to "Oet Even." DWARD GILSEY pleaded guilty yes terday on a charge of having opium in his possession, and was sentenced to six months imprison ment and ordered to pay a line of $250. Hi3 attorney appealed to the higher Court for mitigation of eentence. Gilsey was arrested last week on a charge of smuggling. He was em ployed by a ring on the Australia that brings a load of opium every time the vessel arrives. A boatload of the drug was landed near Kakaako by Gilsey who immediately planted It in the ground to prevent it being captured by the authorities. It was finally found, the lot amounting to ninety pounts or ISO tins In all. It was taken from the Australia, but the manner in which it was done could not be learned until Gilsey gave it away. He stated tbat he remained under the wharf in a flat-bottom boat while the stull was handed down by Smith, the quartermaster. The latter made fre quent trips from the vessel to the wharf with the opium concealed about his person. After Gilsey made this confession the police went in search of Smith, but failed to find him. Gilsey's connection with the affair was given away by the men who em ployed him. In some manner they were Informed that he intended to keep the opium for himself, and sooner than allow him to walk off with their hard-earned stealings, they put the custom house on the track. When it was announced that Gilsey was arrested there were many con gratulations between members of the crew of the Australia. Gilsey is a married man. His wife Is a Portu guese, while he is a negro. He formerly kept a restaurant on King street but gave up business to go as cook on one of the sugar vessels. In speaking of the opium rings on the Pacific Coast a late exchange says that the facilities of the rings are so well established and their resources so numerous that the government agents are not very successful in run ning them down. In this item of opium alone the United States Gov ernment has been losing every year revenue to the amount of $7,500,000. And this, notwithstanding that the government maintains a small army of agents, inspectors and secret ser vice men stationed at various points along the borders of the United States, as well as on steanrer3 and railroads. Prepared opium is manufactured iu large quantities in both Victoria and Vancouver, British Columbia. Both cities are seaports, and Vancouver is connected with Puget Sound cities and towns by two railroads. It is estimated that 1,500,000 pounds of pre pared opium are manufactured in Vic toria and Vancouver every year. There are only two entries at the Port Towusend custom house of duties paid on opium, a port established about fifty years ago. Victoria 13 forty miles from Port Townsend, and there are regular steamer connections. Well-informed men say that one twentieth of the opium shipped to San Francisco passes through the cus tom bouse. Portland, Ore., is another leading port, and some of the wealthiest and most influential Chinamen on the Coast da business there. Ouly a small fraction of the opium distrib uted to consumers by them passes through regular channels. The trade of the.-e China merchants, both iu that city and elsewhere, is very widely distributed. Duty is paid on not more thau 100,000 of the 1,500,004 pounds manufactured in Victoria aud Vancouver. Probably the most ingenious method of smuggling was that recently pro posed to one of the United Stales mail clerks on a line of steamers running between Seattle and Victoria. The clerk could not discover with whom he was dealing, so cleverly were the negotiations carried on. After re ceiving a vaguely-worded letter sug gesting that with his co-operation large sums of money could be easily made, his curiosity led him to follow it up, until he learned deluitely what the scheme was. It was proposed that he should receive at Victoria a United States mail sack, which would contain opium, and deliver it at Seat tle, not to the regular mail wagon, but according to special instructions. He was assured that all other ar rangements had been made, and that discovery was practically impossible if he conducted his part discreetly. An ingenious mate on a sailing ves sel fooled the customs inspectors for a long time after he wa3 known to be smuggling, but he came to grief when a quick-witted inspector thought of the idea of dragging a rope crosswise along the ship's bottom, with the re sult that a long sack was discovered. Afraid of Bis Life. Manuel Peter who resides at Kalihi called at the police station yesterday and stated, that a coun tryman of hi3 cf the same name had threatened to shoot him. A warrant was issued for John Peter who will now nave a chance to ex plain in open Court why he threat ened Manuel's life. J! W. C. T. U. Trust in God, trust in humanity, trust in yourself. These are the three sides of the triangle of endur ing success. Obstinacy is selfish ne?5. Firmness is heroism. On the morning of the W. C. T. 17. Convention in Michigan, when the L. T. L. marched in the line of procession, some of us heard a lit tie fellow, who wa3 holding aloft a banner with the old device, "Save the boys," muttering to his square shouldered comrade, "Save the girls, more like ; they need it worse'n we do." Perhaps the ad monition should be laid to heart. No influence is at present so per suasive as that of printer's inkl As the grass on the hillside binds together the particles of earth and makes a unit of the summer s pa geantry, so the press of these, our times, binds us into one great peo- pie, weiud individuals in me wea pon of party power, molds the members of the same denomination into one plan and purpose, and gives to every guild the point around which to rally. Lady Henry bomerset. Somebody has issued the follow ing advice to the drinker : " One gallon of whisky costs about three dollars, and contains on the aver age sixty-five ten-cent drinks. Now if you must drink whisky, buy a gallon, and make your wife the bar keeper ; then, when you are dry, give her ten cents for a drink. When the whisky is gone, she will have, after paying for it, $3.50 left, and every gallon thereafter will yield the same profit. This money she should put away in the savings' bank, so that when you have be come an inebriate unable to sup port yourself, and shunned and despised by every respectable per son, your wife may have money enough to keep you until your time comes to fill a drunkard's grave n HAD TO SWIM ASHORE. A Water Front Man Explains How Brown Landed on Maui. A well known Chinese, a resident of Maui, is in town to see his friend "Opium Brown." It has been re marked about town that Brown is not as flash now as in former years, bat he will be all right today, as his friend brought a large sack with him. In regard to Brown's landing ou Maui a water front authority ex plains it in this way. "This is how it was: JJrown was a sailor on a sealer, and while the vessel was on way to the Japan sea she passed within a few feet of Maui. At this time Brown was taking a reef in the fore mast, and was engaged in some other remarkable feat when a boom struck him and knocked him over board. He shouted to the captain to stop the boat, but the skipper wouldn't, so the poor fellow had no alteration but to swim ashore." The man who told the story then went into the "Fair Wind" to talk it over. HONOLULU CARRIAGE MANUFACTORY ! W.W. WRIGHT, Proprietor. Carriage : Builder AZSTD REPAIRER.

UNION FEED COMPANY, LIMITED. SS50 1605-lm REMOVAL vrnmTnn mm National Caoe Shredder (PATEXTKD UNDEH TIIK I.AIV O TH K HAWAIIAN ISLANDS-. Mr. John A. 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 of 300 tons. This is fully 10 per cent, more than the best work of former years. "The three roller mill being 26 in. bv 54 in. and the two roller mill 30 in. by 60 in. The first mill doing this amount of 'vork 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 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 nighty for seven months and has 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 require very little care or attention." Slf-Plans and specifications of these shredders may be seen at the office of G. Irwin & Co.

Agent for the Hawaiian Islands of the Richard's Lock Nut, which is an ordinary hexagon nut constructed so that it is impossible for the nut to become loose or slack, and fall off the bolt. 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 principal railroads and street cars lines in the United States. Samples and pamphlets furnished on application 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 snch 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 for 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 ranging in capacity of from two hundred to three million gallons per day. ?T" Estimates and plans furnish ed for new machinery and repairs.
