TAKEN AT PISTOL POINT
A New Plan Frustrated Rush of
Five Men on a Customs Guard. .
Five men off the Australia tried to
stand up the Customs guard at Oceanic
wharf last night with the result that
one of them is at the station house
with a dead-sure case of smuggling
opium against him.
It was shortly after the watch chang
ed at 6 o'clock that R. M. Macauley,
Customs inspector, assigned Guard
Vivachaves to the main gate leading
out on Allen street. Vivachaves had re
ported being offered a bribe by one of
the Australia's crew during the after
noon and Macaulay placed himself In
hiding close by and awaited the com
ing of the men, who usually go out in
gangs after supper.
Five men came along about 7 o'clock
and made a rush for the gate. The
first clinched with Vivachaves but by
that time Inspector Macaulay was
coming up on a dead run for the
crowd and the gleaming barrel of his
reveolver under the rays of the electric
light aimed directly at the men
made them halt in their desperate at
tempt. Vivachaves had blocked the
narrow gate alongside the big en
trance, which was tightly locked and
had the struggling man in close em
brace. Seeing their scheme had failed.
the four men who were free, turned tar
their heels and back to the Australia's
gang plank. Dodging among the piles
of freight'with which the Oceanic dock
is now encumbered, Inspector Macau
lay found it useless to further pursue
them and hastened back where the
big sailor had Guard Vivachaves, who
is a rather slight young fellow, nearly
exhausted. The smuggler gave in upon
Macaulay's approach and was taken to
the Port Surveyor's office and searched.
Nineteen half-pound tins of prime
Hongkong opium were found secreted
in side his shirt and various pockets of
Taken to the station house he gave
his name as Hansen, a Swede, for
many years past donkey man on the
Australia. He had in his possession
$175, of which $130 was in Hawaiian
currency and the remainder in United
States gold. He claimed that two of
the crowd with him had gone through
the gate when he was stopped.
This clever capture redounds not on
ly to the credit of the brave guardian
and inspector who secured the man
and the stuff, but to Port Surveyor
Stratemeyer, whose system of patrol
makes it nearly impossible to land
opium in this harbor.
Further arrests may follow as it is
suspected there are several of the crew
implicated in this affair.
Macaulay and the guards, after the
whole of the raiding party had disap
peared, made a careful search of the
wharf and succeeding in finding ten
tins of opium that had been dropped
by the men who ran away.

While in New York recently, Mr.
R. W. Shingle, the Exposition Com
missioner of Hawaii, was fortunate
enough to interest ia the Islands Mr.
Marshall, the manager of McClure's
Syndicate and of the American Press
Syndicate. For these two circuits Mr.
Shingle furnished a well considered ar
ticle on Hawaii that was published in
leading papers of these cities: St.
Louis, Cincinnati, Kansas City, Denver,
Omaha, Des Moines, Chicago, Buffalo,
Minneapolis, St. Paul. New York, Phil
adelphia and Washington. The article
is of the same tenor as J. F. Brown's
contribution to the Advertiser, with
the "iton'ts" that have been so widely
quoted. The matter has reached ap

In the Quicksands.
Senator Henry Waterhouse has just
had a thrilling experience in the quick
sands of Niu. He was driving in that
district with a Portuguese servant. The
Senator took his team too far makai
and the horses went down in the sand
till only their heads and shoulders
were in sight. The rig sank till only
half wheels were in view. By his usual
coolness the Senator managed after
much toil to get his rig, the horses,
the frightened Portuguese boy and
himself out of the dangerous place. The
Senator is now in favor of having dan
ger signals displayed at quicksand pits.

Commencement Exercises Held at

Essays and Music Diplomas Pre
sented Remarks By a
Commencement exercises were held
in the Honolulu High school last even
ing. There were three "sweet girl
graduates," and four young men, all of
whom acquitted themselves with credit
to their instructors, showing a careful
training both in thought and expres
sion. A large audience gathered, most
of whom were friends of the graduates.
The wall back of the stage was drap
ped in Hawaiian and American flags,
making a pleasing back ground for the
palm and fern leaf decorations at the
front. Seated on the stage were Attor
ney-General Smith, Inspector-General
of Schools Townsend, the Rev. Alex.
Mackintosh, Professor Scott and the
members of the graduating class.
The program began with prayer by
the Rev. Alex. Mackintosh, after which
a song by the High school was given.
Miss Ivy Girvin then read an essay
reating of the Philippine Islands.
Miss Gii vin began with the discovery
of the islands and gave an historical
account of their colonization and slow
development up to the present. The
essay was an instructive one, well writ
ten and delivered in a pleasing man
ner. A mandolin and guitar selection left
a good impression with the audience.
Mr. G. F. Wright chose for the sub
ject of his essay "The Nicaragua
Canal," and handled the question with
skill. Mr. Wright pointed out in a
forcible way the benefits which would
accrue to the Pacfic states if the canal

Miss Rice gave a carefully prepared
essay on "The Indigenous Flowers of
Hawaii," an essay full of blossoms and
trees, green fields and gayly plumaged
birds, and long, musical Hawaiian
words, an essajr showing familiarity
with and love for the beautiful in Na
ture. Mr. Charles Elston sang one of De
Koven's songs "Past and Future." Mr.
Elston has a well trained tenor voice
and so pleased his hearers that an en
core was demanded.
Robert D. King gave an historical
account of the "Constitution of Ha
waii," mentioning the events which led
up to the adoption of the present Con
stitution and closely analyzing that in
strument. Minister Cooper was unable to at
tend the exercises but at ,the last mo
ment Mr. Smith consented to be pres

of advice coming from a man of large
experience, from a man whose lot it
has been to fill high places In life,
were of great worth to the students.
The closest attention was given him.
