MM 1 M KIMONO HAD A LONG WALK 4 Story of Claudine Stow away Now Given. "Ted" Higgins Was HIsName-Came on Deck Too Soon Another. Sneak Thieves Worked. Not much has ever been said about the haole who stowed away on the steamer Claudine when she left this port for San Francsico and who was caught before that vessel got past Koko Head. It seems that it was Ted Higgins, a man who had been knocking about the town for some time and who felt that it was about to get out. He went aboard at the last moment and stowed away in a safe place. The steamer had just been searched before his appear ance or rather, disappearance, aboard the Claudine. There was a man in the crew by the name of Thompson, otherwise known as the "man with the iron jaw." He was aware of the fact that Higgins was aboard. When the steamer was approaching Koko Head he thought everything was safe and called to Hig gins to come up and get something to eat. The men of the steamer were then in the act of searching for just such DeoDle as Higgins for they had been given explicit instructions to the effect that if they happened to find any stow aways aboard the vessel, they must put them ashore, even if it be on the Island of Molokai. Higgins was put in a boat and rowed ashore. This was about 2 o'clock in the afternoon. He walked toward town and arrived at Thomas Square at about 8 o'clock in the"' night. He stretched himself out on one of the benches of the park and went to sleep. In the morning he walked into town and went around to see some of his friends. He was stiff and tired and told some confidentially, of his experience. A few days after wards, he disappeard and it was soon learned that he, had taken passage on one of the vessels for the Sound. It seems that Higgins was not the only man stowed away on the Claudine. There was a young native who had a great desire to see some part of Ameri ca. He knew that there was no chance for him to ship according to the regu lar method, so he hid himself in the hold of the vessel. He, however, was a little more careful than Higgins and did not put in appearance until the morning of the next day when the Isl ands were out of sight. It was a case of necessity then to take the fellow along. However, he was willing to work and proved to be one of the most industrious of the crew. He was as signed the job of passing coal. He had a good time in San Francisco and returned to Honolulu on the Claudine as one of the regular crew. The men who went up on the Clau dine complain that they were robbed while in the dry dock. They were in the habit of leaving their things all about the ship and going to their meals without locking up anything. Of course there were a great number of men employed at the place and these came and went at random. During their walks, various articles disappear ed. An agent, having heard of the complaint that the men had lost vari ous articles, came aboard to make in quiries and found that there was not a man on the ship who had not lost some thing. Nothing was returned. Some factory hands were searched as they left the shops and it was found that a number of them had upon their per sons articles that they had taken from the shops. THREE JATMMRD.S. A Little Roundup Made by De tective David Kaapa. Yesterday morning, Detective Kaapa rounded up in the Police Station, three old jail birds who, for some weeks past, have been watched rather close ly on account of suspicious move ments. The first of these was Pokini, who was caught on Hotel street, wearing the coat of one, Sakata, a Japanese hackman. The second was Kahapukahi, who is supposed to have entered Officer Mohunohu's house on Nuuanu avenue and taken therefrom a coat. The last was Kale Bolabola, who sold some tools to a Chinese black smith on King street. The detectives suspect that the tools were stolen and are now trying to find the person or persons from whom they were stolen. Mr. N. N. Osburn, -well known at Woodstock, Mich., was troubled with a lame back. He was persuaded to use Chamberlain's Pain Balm. It gave him relief in one night. This remedy is also famous for its cures of rheuma tism. For sale by all drueeists nnrt dealers, Benson, Smith & Company agents ror the Hawaiian Islands.
