The sad news of the death of Charles I Carter was indeed a great shock to his many friends In and around Hilo, and to his be reared wife and family the residents here express their heart felt sympathy. The universal opin ion seems to be that those who were immediately responsible for his sad and untimely ending, as also those who were connected with shipping and receiving arms and ammunition for the revolutionists, should be dealt with with the full severity of the law. There has been no demonstration in Hilo consequent upon the condition . .

Sheriff Williams' account or merai fray is as follows: Between 8: SO and' 9 o'clock Jailor Stark made his usual rounds to the prison gangs. After watching the first gang, under Luna Field, he told Kuhalemauna. a dan gerous but lazy criminal, under sen tence of live years for houae-breaklng, towoik better. He responded with the use of some foul language, and was again ordered to work, when he made some further remarks. Jailor Biark then ordered the prisoner to go to the Jail with Luna Field. Upon his refusal to go, Mr. Stark sent for Mr. James, luna of the next gang, at the same time drawing his revolver, but not cocking It (a fortunate Inci dent, as It no doubt saved his life). James Immediately responded, and when some thirty-five feet from Stark saw Kahalemauna raise his Bhovel and bring it down on Stark's head. Fortunately, however, it glanced off and struck on the head and shoulder. As he lay on the ground insensible, he held a firm grasp on his revolver. An other prisoner, lluakahela, struck at him with a pick, the handle of which hit Stark on the left arm. Almost at the same moment James tired, the bullet striking Kaukahela in the back. Meantime, Kahalemauna had gained possession of Jailor Stark's revolver, and was standing over him with the revolver pointed at Stark'a abdomen. Failing to discharge the revolver as he lield his thumb against the hammer and his finger outside the trigger guard he applied both hands outside the trigger guard. Stark was regaining consciousness as James ap proached, and he cried: "Shoot him or ne win snoot mer xuereupuu, James fired at Kahalemauna. the V. 111 oK ma?l . a. , ma n. AM third shot takimr effect in his bacK. As he reeled over he again pointed I the pistol at Stark, upon which James again fired, aiming to kill, but the tmllet lust crazed the convict's head. The other prisoners of the gang took no part In the fray. The wounded men were removed to the jail, and the Sheriff telephoned for at once. He Immediately ordered all the prisoners to the jail, and, in company with Dr. Williams, he went out. After the wounds were bandaged the men were taken to Hilo, where Dr. Williams, with great difficulty, extracted the bullet which was deeply imbedded in Kahalemauna's backbone. He is do ing as well as can be expected. The other prisoner only received a flesh wound. Jailor Stark, although somewhat sore and stiff, is attending to his duties. Had it not been for the timely arrival of Luna James, he would undoubted ly have been killed.

The day was perfect and only three teachers were absent. All re gretted that Miss Belle Weight was confined to her home with measle. The following program was excellent ly carried out: Second Year Reading, Miss West.. Selections from "Page," Miss Elvira Richardson. First Year Arithmetic, Mr. E. Ray. Noon Intermission. "Busy Work," Miss Kelley. Penmanship. Mr. I. Ray. Correcting Written Work and en eral Discussion. Miss West's class In reading was most Interesting, and showed very clearly what progress the children have made since Miss West's return from the Coast. Perhaps the greatest help was gained from Miss Kelley's paper on Busy Work." She has made this subject a study, and those who avail ed themselves of the opportunity of taking notes during her reading must have gained material enough to last them a year.

IV The news from Honolulu has superseded all other questions of public or social interest. Though there was a gou eral expectation that ootnethlng was up the sensation produced on the ar rival of the news was not less on that accouut, Amoug the citizens of the Republic was a feeling of relief min gled with pride at the courageous spirit shown by the defenders of the Republic Among the royalists here there Is consternation. When the Kluau failed to arrive last Tuesday there was a little flutter of anxiety, as all have frleuds or rela Uvea lu Honolulu. Mauy hoped that It was only a koua that delayed the steamer. Then news came overland from Kona that the W. CI. Hall had been delayed lu her depart ure by the Government In antici pation of some disturbance. This information was, in a few hours later, midnight call of Mr. H.P.Baldwin in tho Ke Au Hou. The auxlety hourly grew stronger, and men placed all available weapons lu readiness for any summons that might come. Meanwhile, on a calm survey of the question, confidence In the ability of citlzensand soldiery of Hono lulu to hold their own pre vailed, and all the people could do was to wait and bo ready. They counted up their own resources in Kohala with growing satisfaction. The Republic is amply able to hold Its own in Kohala. The natives who are counted with the opposition are at heart apathetic There are two or three resident firebrand foreigners who have for the past two years con stantly encouraged the natives in the foolish hope of restoration. As will be well remembered the first offense In Kohala against the Provisional Government was committed by a eicrn rovalist element here have from the beelnnlnff slaved lago to the natives' Othello. They have con stantly ursred the natives on to resist ance, to the Government. But they have never shown the evidence of courage to stand by their pretended friends in the hour of trial. Their one idea is that of the anarchists of Eu- rooe. to create if Dossil) le a period of anarrhv and terrorism. There is no doubt In the minds of citizens here that many of these foreign-born aliens nf Kohala were oarties to the con spiracy which has just come to a head in Honolulu, and had that head so rtromtlv crushed. The conduct of these people at the lime, vacua oronhecies given while under the influence of liquor, their nnnhpcked iubilation unon the steam- eHsdelav. information that bubbled over in the form of pretended dreams Ami mvaterlous insinuations, all tend to fix the stigma upon them of being suvpsaorv to the crime of conspiracy. And the miblic indignation toward them crows hourly stroncer. When the news came at last, in spite of expectation, it was a shock to all. more esnecialiv as many of us were nersonallv acquainted with C. L. Carter. His death is universally rienlored. More so by none, it is to be I hoped : . . . w . ii r ed. tnan oy some oi mesa mis guided fools who nave consianuy oy their example and Intemperate lan- cuace urged the natives on a course that might very readily have resulted In some such terrible deed in Kohala. One royalist Hawaiian here, not long since, made the remark that it might be in a few days his unpleasant duty lo shoot a few of his acquaintances. Assassination is haDDily not a char acteristic of the Hawaiian, and they are only urged to such intemper ate language by the example and suggestion of unscrupulous and more cunnincr foreigners. Knowing these things as Kohala people do, the feeling of indignation is very strong towards the foreigners who stood behind the outbreak in Honolulu. It Is the universal opin ion that justice must be meted out to these men. Not a voice will be raised against their well deserved punish ment. The Government has oeen most forbearing in their attitude through the most trying circum stances, and their magnanimous con duct has added not only to the dignity but even to the stability oi tneitepuDiic Rut now that actual murder and armed rebellion has ensued, forbear ance would cease to be a virtue, and magnanimity would be taken for vac ilation. All feel that anarchy must cease and the men who were the real cause of unprovoked murder must suffer punishment if the proof is forth coming. It is a common comment that at least four of the suspects were practlc- ing lawyers. Whatever the outcome I . -i. , - .- l in meir Cic na icguius lueit cuuijnn;- itv in the conspiracy, it is the plain duty of the Government to revoke their licenses to practice la wand plead in the courts of the Republic which they have in less criminal, though not less offensive ways, opposed. It is a source of congratulation that the native police stood their tryiog ordeal so well. They have proved themselves worthy of all praise, and every citizen must rejoice aud applaud them with all his heart. Their posi tion was more trying than outsiders can understand, and their courage in the hour of trial was real heroism. And what is better, they do not stand alone among their race. There are scores of natives in the second elect- oral district, and all throughout the group, rno tAXA shoulder to shoutder with the defenders of the Republic; men of intelligence who rlUe that the Kwt caue Is lot beyond the poM billtyof finding, and that something bolter Is in its plac. Everything 1 absolutely quiet In Kohala xu work Is going on as unual. Most of the mills are grinding. Among tlie natlvrs the most exaggerated stories are alloat as to thealaughr on both sldra. They accept tlie evidence of utter disaster and defeat on the part V1 'k1: ou eems to soothe thtlr atuour propro as natlvrs, to Im agine that victory was dsarly bought, and defsat of members of their owu race was not entirely ahanicfuU The conduct of Robert Parker and tlie trusty native police Is a matter of congratulation among them. The latter part of December and the first half of January has seen very little rain in Kohala, though the weather has, on the whole, been cloudy. Many of the streams that started after tlie heavy downpour at the end of November, are drying up. The cane remains green and heaUhy looklng, and seems to promise well tor next year's crop. Some of tlie nights lately have been quite chilly, ther mometers registering well down to ward 60 degrees. The holiday season passed with Its full share of the customary Joya. New 1 car's day witnessed very pleasant picnic at Kohala landing. The suc ceeding Friday night there was a pub lic ballat theMuiio Hall. There have been a good many visit ors In Kohala of late, of whom the most recent are Mr. Oscar White of K, O. Hall A Son, and Mr. Fisher of Cal ifornia. They go forward to Honolulu by this Klnau. A native was a day or two ago lodged in Kohala Jail, charged with a mur derous assault upon his wife, tlie out come of a drunken orgie. Tho Hawaii is expected with later news tills Tuesday evening. As comparatively little freight was brought by tho Kluau, It is fortunato that she is able to make up lost Umo by returning on her regular day next Saturday. THIS SPACE RKSKBVKD FOR H. F. WICHMAN. H.
