Marshal Brown's Report On Work
of the Flood.
Marshal Brown has prepared a flood j
rfrport that will most likely be read to
le members cf the Legislature this
4 ay.
It is to the effect that the damage
In dollars is not great. The houses in
jfthe flooded district are still clamp and
in many cases wet weather remains on
the floors. In a week or ten days, with
fair weather, the cottages will be all
right for occupancy again. In the
meantime, as the Advertiser said, the
people thus deprived of their homes,
are lodging with friends and relatives
about the city. They are not in great
distress now, all their temporary wants
having been supplied without delay by
the Hawaiian Relief Society.
The iMarshal found that 301 people
had been driven from their homes by
the sudden rise of Nuuanu stream. Of
this total, 117 were children. Marshal
Brown says that about the only assis
tance he could suggest would be the
use of some carts or wagons for them
in moving their belongings.
In commenting on the flood outside
the report, Marshal Brown mentions
the work of the Hawaiian Relief So
ciety in terms of highest praise and
speaks well also of the part C. S. Desky
took in aiding the distressed people.
Mr. Desky was on the scene and ap
preciating the need for changes of
clothing supplied a large quantity for
both men and women. ?
Captain Parker is mentioned in the
report of the Marshal as having made
a thorough inspection of the flooded
districts.
WILL BE REMEMBERED.
Minister Shinianiura Frepares Tes
timonial for Wells.
William Wells, the sailor from the
R. P. Rithet, who so heroically tried
to rescue the Japanese fromi drowning
in Nuuanu streaim, is to have a hand
some reward in addition to the purses
of money which have been raised for
him. Today he is to be presented with
a gold watch, suitably engraved and
the following memorial from Minister
Shimamura:
"March 28, 1898.
"To Mr. William Wells, Aboard the
American Bark, R. P. Rithet.
"Information has come to me from
several sources and of a trustworthy
nature that, on the 24th of March,
1898, during a raging flood in the
Nuuanu stream, you manfully tried to
rescue a drowning Japanese, one of
my countrymen. The sentiment to as
sist one in distress is humane. -An
effort, to save human life, at the im
minent risk of losing one's own is both
courageous and heroic.
"Permit me to thank you for your
humane sentiment, your courageous
and heroic effort to save the life of the
unfortunate Unosuke Kitagawa. Please
to accept the accompanying watch
from the Japanese residents, as a slight
token of their admiration of your con
duct. "Yours with respect,
"H. SHIMAMURA.
"II. I. J. M.'s Minister Resident."
HABEAS CORPUS.
Two Men Sold Kauai Chinese Mo
lasses for Opium.
There is returnable before Judge
Hardy, of the Circuit of the Island of
Kauai, this week, a writ of habeas cor
pus, in the case of the Republic
against a couple of men who are al
leged to have sold to some Chinese of
the Garden Isle, spurious opium. The
bargain was made for the genuine drug
and good samples were shown. On de
livery, the goods proved to be a mix
ture of poi and molasses. The sellers
were first arrested on the charge of opi
um in possession. This prosecution fell
through, and next they were arrainged
as gross cheats. The Government of
ficials will make a determined effort to
have the writ put aside, so that the
case may go to trial." The attorneys for
the defendants believe the case will fail
for the reason that the whoe transac
tion is in a contraband article. The
case is watched with considerable in
terest from Honolulu, for the reason
that the same sort of a swindling game
has several times occured here in out
law circles.
A tart Ue mains.
The sons of Claus Spreckels have
near Kahului, something placed by
their father, many years ago, that they
will now use as a part of a new move
ment in their business of handling the
affairs of the Hawaiian Commercial
Company. Claus Spreckels at one time
proposed to have a wharf of his own at
Kahului, instead of using lighters him
self or having some one else move his
freight. The imported men who had
placed the foundations for the mill en
gines and boilers and some of the
buildings, were set at pier building.
They inade a very fair success of most
of the job. Some of the pier founda
tions were set too near the surface, and
have ben toppled over by the moving
waters and sands. Others yet remain
and will, in all probability, be utilized
by the brothers in their new enterprise.
WHAT IS ASKED.
Loan and Improvement Bills!
Just Under a .Million. j
The Lean Bill and the Sunday Inv
(provement bill introduced into the
Senate yesterday aggregate $993,300.
Of this amount $721,300 is in the Loan
Bill under the act of 1S90. The bal
ance, is to be taken from current un
appropriated receipts during the pres
ent period. If the Loan Bill passes :
$455,000 will be spea: on needed im
provements on the Island of Oahu,
with the greater part in Honolulu, j
The largest item in the bill is $237,300 j
for the proposed Honolulu sewerage
system. On harbor improvement, Ho
nolulu, $93,000 is to be spent, on har
bor improvement in Hilo Bay, $20,000
is to be spent. New roads on Hawaii
will take up $138,000, new roads cn
Maui $19,000.
The schedule contemplates the ex
penditure of $20,000 for new reservoir
at Diamond Head, $65,000 for additions
to the city pipe system of water works,
$3,000 for a fire proof vault at the
Supreme Court, $10,000 for a lighthouse
on iMakapuu point and $50,000 for sub
sidy to the Oahu Railway.
Provision is made for using surplus
receipts of the period, from balance of
deposits in the Postal Savings Bank
with the agreement that money so ad
vanced shall be reimbursed as soon as
practicable from funds received from
the loan.
The sundries bill includes such inter
nal improvements as were selected by
the Executive and over which there
was question in the Senate as to which
bill they should be included in. The
Manuel Training School calls for $10,
000, Immigration other than Asiatic
$50,000, Nuuanu valley road $10,000,
Volcano road in Kau $20,000, regrading
main road and roads to landing in
Hamakua $22,000, cross roads and road
parallel to Volcano road in Puna $50,
000. Other amounts are distributed over
the several Islands for improvements
in sums varying from $1,000 to $10,000.
The money is to be taken for these,
improvements from the current re
ceipts from the general revenue cf the
period. The excess of receipts over
expenses for the biennial period just
passed was over $300,000. It is estimat
ed that the receipts of the present peril
6d will be an increase over last.
3IUTE SYMPATHY.
Poetic Feeling Shown In a Pres
ent to Clara Barton.
Miss Clara Barton of the Red Cross
Society, now distributing relief contri
buted by the American people among
the suffering Cubans, states that 1he
Spanish authorities and all classe?, aid
her in every possible way.
In one of the rural districts a basket
of flowers was handed to her, decorat
ed with black ribbons, and the words
"Maine" inscribed across the face c
the flowers. '
Sumner Estate.
A decision was filed at the Judiciary
Building yesterday in the case of John
K. Sumner vs. Antone Perry. Thi
case was taken to the Supreme Court
on "original jurisdiction." The inter
ests involved are well known. The
decision orders that the costs of the
suit be divided between the litigants.
It is decreed that the receivership of
J. A. King discontinue, for the reason
that John K. Sumner, the owner cf the
estate, is now. in the country.
The Gazette (semi-weekly) will be
issued thli morring in time for th
outgoing island and foreign mails.

It is ccnfidence in the article you
sell, sufficient to warrant you to
stand by it under all circumstances.
That's the confidence we have in
our goods, and that's why we are
not afraid to shnd by them, not
only before, but after they are sold.
AH other goods perish, or are con
sumed in a short time and the
dealers' responsibility soon ceases,
but a choice piece of Jewelry or
Silverware lasts forever, and the
Jewelers' responsibility with it.
It is to your advantage to pur
chase such, where the guarantee is
your safeguard, where great distance
does not make the guarantee value
less to you, and where it is th
honest endeavor to give satisfaction
in every instance.
