WALKER, ' AGENT. Bonds ANOTHER VICTIIVi Portnpse Laborer Lost His Life On Mali. CAUGHT WHILE LOADING CANE Government Bridge Carried Away. Heaviest Rain On Record Since 1851. (Special Correspondence). MAUI, March 26: During Thursday, the 24th, a Portuguese laborer, named Manuel Gouveira, of the Wailuku Plantation was killed at Waiehu, by the plantation railroad train loaded witih cane coming from Waihee. It seems that he was loading cars with cane from a flume when the engine going at slow speed, struck him, knocked him down and partially ran over his body, causing injuries which resulted in almost immediate death. It is stated by wtnesses that that the laborer was entirely responsible. When the cars are alongside the plat form from which the cane is loaded, a space of only about three feet is left. The Portuguese had been jumping across the track and was in this way caught. Gouveira was about 45 years of age. Gouveia was about 45 years of age. He leaves a wife and 5 or 6 children. Sheriff Baldwin is holding the coro ner's inquest today in "Wailuku Court House. Last evening, a most enjoyable dancing party was given by the young men of "Puunene". in the large Spreck elsville hall. Three or four sets in the "square" dances enjoyed the en livening music of the Spreckelsville brass band. The program of the even ing was not completed until a late hour. During a storm of last week, the bridge over the Government road at Keanae, Hana, was washed down to the sea-shore. The bridge was made of very heavy timber fastened by Ljirge iron rods. The present season is said to be the most humid and stormy one since 1S51. At Kokomo the residents state that it has rained every day since January 1st. Kula ,rarely ever in its history has had such a rainfall, many a field of corn having been washed away and destroyed. Today, L. von Tempsky will sell at auction several small lots o land sit uated at Kaluanui, Puuomalei, Alelele, Kokomo, Makawao, etc. The H. C. Co. have 12 or 15 men at. work at Kahului beach putting in piers for the new landing. Two sets of sheet iron cylinders which are to be filled with concrete have already been placed in position and the laborers are. at work on the third set. The new landing will extend further out into the bay than the old. During the 21st, the schooner Al bert Meyer, Marshal master, arrived in Kahului from Honolulu in ballast. She departed for San Francisco, the 25th, with a cargo of H. C. Co.'s sugar. During the same day, (the 21st), the barkentine, Robert Sudden, Birkbolm master, arrived in Kahului, 62 days from Newcastle. She brought a cargo of coal for Kahului R. R, Co. During the 24th, the brig Lurline, MoLeod master, arrived in Kahului 11 days from San Francisco. She brought a cargo of general merchan dise for H. C. Co. which she will dis charge at the old landing. Kahului bay which has been quite rough for some time past is much more quiet today. One of the two large pumps at Paia plantation is in position and the other nearly so. The necessary pipe is soon expected. By use of these pumps, the annual crop will be largely increased. It is still very rainy. Talked On Gambling. T. S. Southwick led .the men's meet ing at the Y. M. C. A. at 4 o'clock on Sunday afternoon. There was a very fair attendance of young men and older ones. There was special music, with Mr. Fleming at the piano and Seymour Hall and Mr. Frazier playing violins. The topic for the meeting was "Gamb ling," and for the Scripture lesson Mr. Southwick read from Proverbs. The leader then spoke of all forms of gamb ling, giving them the severest condem nation and sounding warning to young men. Record Was Beaten. A few of the kamaainas still insist that theflood of last Thursday was not so badas some visitations of similar nature many years ago. The fact of the matter is that there is no parallel of the rainfall of the flood day or of the body of water seen. Prof. W. D. Alexander, in comment ing on the flood, remarked that it was a good thing improvements had been made in recent years in the low lying residence districts. He thought that otherwise the loss of life and property would have been something appalling. HALF DARK. Accident at Electric Light Works. Several Circuits Closed. The low pressure crank at the Ha waiian Electric Light Works broke at about 4 o'clock yesterday morning. A force of men was kept busy all day shifting various parts of the machin ery, to remedy imatters temporarily, so that there would not be darkness in all the parts of the city furnished with light by the Hawaiian Electric Light Company. By night about half of the city was furnished with light. An attempt was made to give more light, but the tem porary arrangement would not stand it. There will be more light tonight, but it will be a couple of days before all the lights are in working order again. A new shaft from ' San Francisco would take about six weeks' time to get here. In the meantime a shaft will likely be secured here. Was Another Alarm. The heavy rains In the hills continue night and day. On Saturday evening the alarm was once more sent along Nuuanu stream. There had been quite a rise in the stream. On the avenue there was a considerable rush of wa ter. One of the tram cars left the track four times in coming from the mauka terminus to the city. There were quite heavy showers late Saturday night and again last night in the city. The rains in Ewa have abated. The railway trains are running on their schedule time again. 3Iilitary Notes. Spencer Lane of Co. E, has been made clerk at headquarters, vice Keis ter, time expired. Keister has not yet decided whether he will remain in the country or return to the States. In his examination for promotion to be corporal in Co. E, Private Al Moore stood 100 per cent. At the meeting on Friday evening the D boys had an impromptu high jinks. Five new members were sworn in. These were Tom Hennessy, A. Mc- Angus, Maxwell, Jack Lang and W. B. Lycett. Distributing Supplies. At one time Saturday forenoon, there were 70 Hawaiians on the premises of Mrs. S. C. Allen, as applicants for re lief on account of the flood ruin. Mrs. Allen and her colleagues of the Hawai ian Relief Society were busy from early in the morning till dark, distributing clothing, blankets and orders for food and bedding. All suffering brought to the attention of the committee by Mar shal Brown or others, was promptly relieved. Saved a Boy. W. S. Edings, the attorney, prob ably saved the life of a boy on the wa ter front Saturday. The lad fell over board and as he could not swim, be gan at once to cry for aid. Mr. Ed ings happened to be near and went to the rescue. The attorney is an excel lent swimmer and soon, had the boy safe and sound on dry land. Mr. Ed ings has modestly declined to say anything at all about the affair. Standard Patterns. L. B. Kerr has been appointed agent for the Islands for the Standard paper patterns, known the world over, and the Designer, a publication for ladies. Mr. Kerr is ready to. supply orders for either. HE USES A PIKE How tie Killer of Beeves Neatly Does His fori BLOW IS A LIGHT ONE Scenes at the Slaughter House of the Metropolitan Meat Co. New Method Hogs and Sheep. Between COO and 700 beeves are slaughtered here each month for the local consumption and for such out side trade as happens. One man kills all of these cattle. The calves that sell as veal carcasses fall at his hands also. The man is a native who has been at the particular business for fourteen years. He has become so adept at inflicting the death blow that his work may be said to be perfect. For the business he requires a clear, unfailing eye and a steady nerve. All this killing is done at the slaughtering establishment of the Metropolitan Meat Company in Iwilei, where Louis Touissant is in charge and where Dr. W. T. Monsarrat, as representative of the Board of Health, looks after Che sanitation, etc. To Dr. Monsarrat, an Island man educated in the States for his profession falls the task of general inspection of the meat food supply all through the processes of receiving, slaughtering and preparing for mar ket. An Advertiser reporter in a visit to the slaughter houses on Saturday afternpon had the advantage of the courtesies cf Dr. Monsarrat as guide, "philosopher and friend." The most interesting thing at this big slaughtering establishment is the killing of the beeves. The animals are brought to the death pen in lots of half a dozen to a dozen. This com partment is about 12 by 30 feet. It is heavily barred on all sides, has a solid floor and; upper works of heavy planks for the killer. This native is armed with a pike. It is quite long and not light. At the stabbing end is a heavy steel point with a razor sharp blade perhaps an inch and a half in width. The man selects the beast to go and getting directly above it carefully poises his spear. He makes a lighting movement or two and then lands. The blow is not a forceful or vicious one. It seems scarcely enough to break the skin. The point struck is immediate ly behind the horns and in the center. The spinal chord is severed. . The bullock or cow does not stagger. It cannot be said to fall. There is not a second of wavering, not a step or jump, scarcely a start. The beast sim ply collapses. It goes down in a heap. Disablement to the extent of destruc tion of all consciousness or sensation or feeling or liability to pain is gone in the twinkling of an eye. This method of killing is called "pithing" and has the endorsemnt of humane societies, veterinaries and slaughter ing experts all over the world. It was adopted here but a few years ago. The nativea showed to the visitor the old appratus for hauling the beeves down to a ring and then using a sledge on the head. With that system the beast appeared to realize that it was being dragged to its death and the bel lowings and sometimes shriekings were pitiful. Now there is no noise from the animals. The whole killing is for them speedy, sudden and quite without hurt. Calves are still struck in the head, but they can be so easily and quickly handled that there is lit tle or no cruelty in the plan of ending them. In killing sheep the throats are cut and hogs are stabbed with a long knife. This cool killer of Sat urday handed over to the dressers six bullocks in but a little more than five minutes. The work of this skill ful Hawaiian is not over when his spear is landed with such effect. Aft er he has the lot on the floor, almost motionless, he descends quickly to their midst, picking up on the way a beauty of a big knife. With this weap on he opens the jugular of one after another of the prostrate animals. One or two of them may be moving a little. When the jugular is tapped the rush of blood to the great outlet is a reg ular flood. The rich, heavy, warm fluid runs into a conduit that empties into tanks placed for storage by the fertilizer works people. After using the pretty blade the killer rests or directs the movements of the crew of Chinese that removes the hides, gets rid of the offal or waste and halves v and hang3 up the carcasses. Wagons are waiting to take the meat to the cold storage. Dr. Monsarrat has looked over the animals in the pens and has watched the killing. A3 the Chinese dressers work the inspecrcr, taking a knife himself cuts into the livers and lungs. If disease is found, condemnation fol lows. Some of the best looking, live liest, heaviest and fattest animals are far in tuberculosis. After the halves of the "good" beeves are passed by the inspector they are, being going into the drays for the ice house, class ed and tagged by a native young man for the Metropolitan Company. This boy's judgment is entirely trusted. There are three pig killing estab lishments in Iwilei. At the slaughter ing place of the Metropolitan Com pany the hog handling department was built under the direction of MsTV sant after the Chicago style or ndaei The plant is quite up to date and. hogs are disposed of with astonishing rapidity. They are kept on the move. Following stabbing is the douche into hot water. Then comes the scraping auu inning. nuuuiuiu uacs uciwocu 600 and 700 porkers every month. The Chinese are the heavy buyers. About one-third perhaps more of the sup ply, is from the Metropolitan Meat Company. Sheep 500 to 600 a month; are handled with more care than cith er bullocks or hogs. The wool Is saved and the pelts are made the most of for commercial purposes. In the big tanning room at Iwilei, Mr. Touissant has a squad of Chinese and a big bank of salt and some pre parations of his own. The beef hide's go to San Francisco, where the rise in leather has made them, a choice market article. All the finishing in the tanning department is done by the chief himself. He has prepared thousands of deer skins that are val ued ornaments in 'Honolulu homes. There is an Immense amount of cooking done in the slaughtering place. Offal, heads and skin bones i. v . J i . 1 - anai noois are Douea aown. jpTom the beef heads meat is first cut. One manan old native takes all the "cheeks." The head bones and the hoofs go to the fertilizer works. A. F. Cooke is the purchaser. The shin bones and the horns are shipped to the Coast. It is likely that some of them come back here as combs or im portant portions of pearl handled knives. The cooked offal goes to Chi nese who use it for duck feed. The tallow is handled by the Metropolitan Company. The slaughtering pens are kept very clean. The whole place is whitewash ed once a week and some of the men seem to be sweeping all the , time. Beeves coming by steamer from other Islands are kept in the corrals a day or two before being killed and some times are sent to pasture for several weeks. The liver fluke is a flat worm an inch or a little more In length andf with a sharp head. It develops from a small shell worm that abounds In the water ways. The fluke feeds upon the liver, sometimes reaches the lungs, is rarely fatal, but leaves a bad mark. There is not so much of it as it gen erally supposed.

Although Honolulu and suburbs were comparatively free from rain yester day, places on the other side of the Island did not fare so well. The rain at Punaluu, Kahana and other places was continuous and very strong. The bridges at both the places mentioned were washed away by the force of the flowing water.
