OF CUSTOMS OFFICERS.
Round Up of Seized Oplam Destroyed

Honrs of Successful Work, Etc.
At a meeting of the Board of Health
recently the ways and means of getting
rid of several thousand tins to seized
opium was discussed and the conclusion
arrived at that it was wrong to fur
nish opium to residents or natives of
Hawaii, it was equally sinful to furnish
the drug, for a consideration, to people
in other localities. Then there was an
other reason. Opium brought here frem

As itfaappened, all the opium sold by
Deputy Collector McStocker, in Victoria,
was brought back on the Henrietta, and
it is believed that the accumulated
stock in the custom house vaults, if it
had beene shipped north, would have
eventually returned here.
To avoid this the authorities decided
to destroy all the stock on hand, and to
do it in a way that there could be no
question as to what the tins contained,
because in the days of old opium some
times changed into bricks and poi in a
The plan proposed by Attorney Gen
eral Smith was to take the opium to a
convenient place and have the tins
chopped open and then dumped into the
sea beycJhd the three-mile limit.
In consequence of this, and under in
structions from Collector General Cas
tle, Deputy Collector McStocker, Sur
veyor. Stratemeyer, Storekeeper Kelley
and a force of inspectors from the cus
toms department and Executive Officer
Reynolds of the health department met
at the custom house yesterday morning
at 7 o'clock.
The arrangement was to check the
opium in the vault, each case being
opened and the tins counted and then
placed on a truck and delivered on
board a scow at the tug wharf. The
plan was faithfully carried out. Deputy
McStocker tallied for the customs de
partment and Mr. Reynolds for the
Board of Health. Mr. Kelley superin
tended the men working in the vault
and Mr. Stratemeyer sat on the dray
and saw that none of the tins were lost
in the handling. Representatives from
the Bulletin and Advertiser, who had
been invited, were present to see fair
When the 5,065 tins were dumped
on the scow the five inspectors sat
around the hatch, each with a Cuban
matchette in his hand, and slashed
away at the tins. Sometimes a single
cut was sufficient to cut a tin in two,
others required more. One of the in
spectors, a young native, seemed not to
be satisfied unless the entire contents
of a tin was emptied on to the deck of
It required three hours and a half for
the men to cut the tins, and when they
were finished the mass protruded
through the hatch. The scow was haul
ed over to the stern of the tug Elu
and lines fastened. When all was ready
Deputy McStocker released all the in
spectors but Frank Innes from duty,
and the tug steamed out. Innes was
made captain of the scow and placed in
command of the deck. Messrs. Mc
Stocker and Reynolds braced them
selves in the stern of the tug and saw
that no plundering sea urchin crawled
up over the 'side and monkeyed with the
At 12:45 p. m. Inspector Innes opened
the flood gates and the blue sea in the
wake of the scow was stained the color
of tobacco juice.
By half past one the wind was blowing
such a gale that the seas washed the
deck of the scow, and it was thought
that young Innes would go overboard.

and with disastrous results to the com
plexions of the reporters. The ruddy
glow so noticeable on the face of the
Bulletin reporter disappeared and was
succeeded by one of ashen hue. The Ad
vertiser man sought the seclusion of
Captain Rice's cabin, while McStocker
and Stratemeyer stepped to the side
rail of the tug and, gazing into the
azure depths of the ocean, paid their
respects to old Neptune and sang in
good Eastern voices, "Still there's more
to follow." A report from Innes that
the opening in the scow was choked up
by the mass of empty tins caused the
tug to heave to. Lines were lengthened
and the scow swung around, the tug in
the meantime rolling in the trough of

again with a coloring that has cost the
Government a good many thousand dol

At one time half of the scow was sub
merged, and in order to finish the job
quicklr Captain Rice sent a sailor to
help Innes, and together they threw the
empty tins into the sea and the tug
turned her nose shoreward, arriving at
the dock at 3:15 p. m.
Besides the 5,065 five-tael tins, there
were 47 tin and brass containers of va
rious shapes and weights taken from
false bottoms of trunks, the soles of
Chinese shoes and the interior of tea
kettles. The net weight of the opium
in the containers was 1.949 oounds.

MURDER ON KAUAI.
Insane Mother Decapitates Her
Baby Is Locked in Jail.
Chester A. Doyle brought word
from Kauai on Saturday of the
murder of an 18-months-old child
by an insane mother.
The details of the crime as re
lated by Mr. Doyle are as follows:
The husband. Hulaia. and his
wife, a half-Chinese woman, live
within a few miles of Lihue Court
House. The man returned from
his work on Wednesday and fail

learned that she had gone down

search he found her and brought
her back to his home. After re

missed her again, and after a dil

Still later she disappeared again,
and the husband found her with
her baby in an outhouse, bending

Iate News by Waialeale The Hono

to liet Back Steam C'omlnsr from
Kilauea No Stjgns of any Flow.
The steamer Waialale arrived late
Sunday afternoon with the very latest
news from the volcano, to the effect that
steam which has been distinctly visi
ble for many days over the crater of Mo
kuaweoweo had diminished and a cor
responding increase of steam was visi
ble over Kilauea, which corresponds
with the predictions made by some of
the old kamaainas here who have stud
ied the action of the two volcanoes for
many years past.
A telephone message was received at
Hamakua from some of the Honolulu
party now at Hilo. They wanted the
Waialeale to go to that place for them,
as they were very anxious to get home.
They had been to the top of Mauna Loa
and seen the raging fires of Mokuaweo-
weo. A similar description to that al
ready published in this paper as hav
ing come from the two men who made
the ascent from the Kona side was sent
flhrough the telephone to the captain of
the Waialeale. No flow or any increase
in activity was reported.

Rep. Winston moved that Section t

Rep. Kamauoha The other day

eral had spoken he changed his mind.

Churchvstates that there is a frame
building on the lot where the church
is, and if the bill goes into effect they
must pat up a brick one.
Minister Smith said Every time the
bill has been brought up 'a great deal
of time has been wasted in discussing it.
If it was not a matter of great Import
ance to the city, if it was not one that
will add to the improvement of the city.
I would not press it. If we are to wait
ur.til the bill will not interfere with the
purse of anyone, it will never go
through. When you come to private in
terests, every place a fire proof building
is erected enhances the value of the rest
of the property in the neighborhood. If
the bill now fails It is because public
benefit Is to be sacrificed to personal In
terests. That's what It amounts to.
