THE PACIFIC COM M KIM I A J A I'VKirriSKli: no.NOLULU, MARCH 12. !b95.
JUDGE PERRY AT HARD LABOR, Nearly Two Hundred Cases Called in One Day. .fusr HiIkinu ie roi: l.ot time. A Large Number of Cane, both Civil and Criminal, Disponed Of In (he District Court Another Lot to Cone Up To morrow Some Sentence Suspended. The defendants alone in the numerous cases called in the Dis trict Court yesterday would fill a courtroom not larger than Judge Perry's to repletion. There were all sorts of them, from the common ordinary drunk to those accused of embezzlement and barratry, and some people don't know what that crime consists of. The great ac cumulation of cases, however, evi dently inclined the Court to mercy, and the celerity with which busi ness was despatched would com pare favorably with the Tombs Police Court in New York. In a great number of cases pleas of guilty were entered and in most of these sentence was . suspended. Ordinary cases of drunkenness or bad and unseemly conduct at night were let off with a two-dollar fine and an extra dollar for the clerk's costs. The case of C. L. Brito, charged with embezzlement, was continued until moved on by the prosecution. Patrick Cullen's preliminary ex amination on a charge of murder was set for hearing on March 12th. A number of assault and battery cases were dismissed, nineteen in dividuals paid fines for being drunk and four escaped, having made satisfactory excuses to the Court. Captain Hill's case was post poned until March 12th, although he pleaded guilty. He is charged with barratry, which in the lan- -e n. - 1 i guage vi iuo .uumpiuiui, ugtuubv him, means running away with the steamer "Waimanalo while that vessel was within the maritime jurisdiction of the Hawaiian Isl ands. To give a list of the cases dis posed of by Judge Perry yesterday would be tiresome, some six pages of bis docket being filled up on; criminal business alone. At the afternoon session Judge Perry devoted his time to clearing off a number of civil cases which have accumulated in the past two months. Of these Joseph Tinker, the Nuuanu street butcher, had two, one against P. A. Anderson for meat to the amount of $28.35, and the other against Wm. Max well for $25 76. In both cases Mr. Tinker recovered judgment for the amount sued for besides the usual costs and percentage. A. Fernandez recovered judg ment by default against Lau Chong for $163.08 on three notes for un paid liquor bills. Lewis & Co. obtained a judgment against P. O'Sullivan for $13.73 on a grocery bill, John Effinger ap pearing as attorney for plaintiffs. Several cases for debt were set tled before the Court upon the payment of costs, and stricken from the docket. In all, twenty-six civil cases were disposed of yesterday afternoon, but these represent only a email proportion of the wkole. i m m THE SCOTTISH RITE. High Masonic Officials Installed and Banqueted.

VOLCANO PICTURE SOLD. Mr. Hitchcock's Painting Will Go to England. Howard Hitchcock's celebrated picture representing the blow-bole at the Volcano has been sold by Mr. C. D. Cha?e to the Hon. James B. M. Lingard Monk of the Con servative Club, London. This painting, one of Mr. Hitch cock's best, represents the active blow-hole that opened on the rising sides of Halemaymau in April, 1894. It presaged another "Little Beg gar," a marked feature of Kilauea as late as 1887. - The action of this new opening was, however, short lived and-last- ed barely two weeks. Fortunately the artist visited the Volcano during its activity and from sketches and studies then made painted this picture which, as a realistic representation of furi ous activity and suppressed vol canic force has not been surpassed in his own work, nor even by that of the late Ta vernier. Standing as near the fire-vent as is safe, with the internal glow lighting its rag ged edges, supplemented by the indications of fire already showing over the edges of the main fire lake above in the gathering dusk, one feels transported to the scene itself, almost conscious of the rum blings and vibrations of the hidden forces beneath the broken surface of the darker lavas. In the dis tance, just showing, is a portion of the surrounding crater walls, while the sky shows murky, and discol ored through the rising vapors and sulphurous gases. This picture, is a faithful repre sentation of one of nature's sub lime forces and may well be class ed as one of tbe artist's best ef forts. WANTS BUSSES REGULATED. Taxpayer Gives Some Suggestions on Management of 'Bus Lines. Mr. Editor: I wish that you would grant me space enough in your paper to voice not only my sentiments, but the sentiments of the public. Is it possible for us to obtain a 'bus line service that will be run to accommodate the people who aro forced to use the 'busses as a means of getting to and from their places of business? A week or so ago I had occasion to use the 'busses at Kalihi, as usual, to carry me to town, and after waiting some fifteen minutes, asked the driver when he expected to leave, and he politely informed me that perhaps he would start in fifteen minutes and perhaps in an hour or so. The same thing occurred last Sunday at Waikiki. I do not wish to be put down as a kicker, but as long as the persons interested in the omnibus business intend cater ing to the public and their wishes, I think that they should consider the wants of their patrons rather than their personal differences. In Peoria, 111., where the 'bus lines are extended beyond the street car lines, the city council passed an act which is not only fair to the owners of the 'busses, but to the traveling public more particularly. The substance is as follows : "The time-table of departure and arrival from and to the several stands and places within the police district of shall be regulat ed by a time-table approved by the city council, copies of which shall be" prepared by the person in authority, from whom a copy may be had on application. Every driver who shall start or arrive at any public stand or place otherwise than in strict accordance with such time-table, shall be guilty of an of fense against this by-law. "Provided, That as occasions re quire, any such time-table may be altered under the like authority aforesaid. The first omnibus to start on one day shall be the last on the next, and the others in their order, and each owner shall furnish an omnibus to perform the jour neys in turn that fall to him, so as to keep a continuous routine daily." I hope that the pres3 of Hawaii will take up this matter and bring it before the public, and I feel as sured that if it is done in the right manner they will find that my ideas will be voiced by all who are dependent upon the 'busses as a means of getting down town in time to be at their places of busi nesaon time.

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. 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 wort 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 Las been increased from 3 per cent, to 5 per cent, on all kinds of cane, and in some cases 80 per cent, has been reached; the average being 75 to 78 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 has given me entire satisfaction, having shredded during that time about seventy thousand tons of cane, and a largo part of it being hard ratoons. "The shredder and engine require very little care or attention." tPlans and specifications of these shredders may be seen at the office of We G. Irwin & Co.
