TWO CHARGES WERE BROUGHT Indictment of Blackmailing Follows One Acquittal Hong Kong Re fuses an Extradition. T:i Hawaiian citizen, Chung Shui Yun.L', arrested in Hongkong on a charge of burglary, an account of which was given in. this paper sovvral days ago, was dismissed in conse quence of the evidence of two German missionaries resident in the district. His enemy, which, doubtless, is the Chinese Government, was not satis fied with one attempt to ruin the man, but again applied to the English mag istrate for extradition papers, this time having Chung arrested on the charge of threatening certain persons with in tent to extort money, within the juris diction of China, in the middle of October. On a query from the Magis trate, instigated by Mr. Gedge, coun sel for the defense, it was learned that Mr. Robinson, attorney for the prose cution, represented an official in the Chinese Government, and, on further inquiry that the official was second in power at Kowloon city. Mr. Robinson said the charge laid against defendant was that on the l'4th day of the eighth moon at Tai Chung village, in the district of On Sun, he raado the following threat to a man of the name of Chung A Fat: "Tell your master that I want $3,000 from him to morrow to be sent to Wong Long. If he does not send me the $3,000 on the 25th I must have $1,000 more for each of the following days. If your master does not send the money on the 30th day tell him to be careful." Inspector Hansen was then called and said by virtue of a warrant pro duced he arrested the defendant at 3:30 p. m. on the 29th inst. at the Yan On Chan boarding house, Pray a Central In a trunk he found an envelope con taining certain documents. Defendant said he was a naturalized Hawaiian subject and had his naturalization pa pers. Witness opened the box and found the papers. Mr. Gedge then proceeded with his ci oss-examination and in answer to his . questions Inspector Hansen said he knew that the Chinese Government had offered a reward of $2,000 for the arrest of the defendant. His name headed a list of names posted at the Sun On Magistrate's Yamon . of men who were '"tabooed" as Triad Society men. The $2,000 was to be paid for the arrest of defendant by the Chinese authorities for his connection with Cae Triad Society. Re-examined by Mr. Robinson wit ness said that he had heard that the Triads had been committing lawless acts. Asked if he could say whether the district of Sun On was in a state o? political rebellion in October or whether the disturbance arose from pillage, witness said he understood the state to be rebellious. A week before he arrested defendant Laii Kin Chi ap plied to witness to arrest him in con nection with the Triad Society. He had onlv heard of three crimes in the Sun On district lately. In answer to his Worship witness said he did not at the time of the ar rest know that there was a once on defendant's head. Inspector Ford and a Chinese ser geant interpreter, who were on charge room duty when defendant was brought in, gave formal evidence. Cheung Yun Fat grave evidence to : the effect that on the 23rd day of the ! eighth moon five men came to the Tai j Cheong village and went to the house i nf vnnpc;s's Truster. Chnn Tai. who is a large landowner. v Defendant was one of the meu. Defendant said to witness: "Tell your master to send me $3,000 on the 25th day. If he does not send it on the 25th day I shall want $1,000 for the 26th and each of the following days. If he does not send it by the 30th tell him to be careful." Witness was subjected to a Ion cross-examination by Mr. Gedge. in th-8 course of which he stated that he was brought to Hongkong by two justices who told him he must say that. They j did not threaten to cut his head off if he did not say what they told him, nor did they offer him money. They only promised to pay his expenses. They said to him. "You have said such things and you must go and say that.' He had heard that $2,000 had been of fered for defendant, but witness was to have no share of it. No threats were used to anyone when defendant aske witness to ask his master for the $3,000 except that he said: "If your master ! does not send the money tell him to be i careful." i The case was Uefore the Court for two days, when His Worship, in view ; of the outcome of the burglary affair and the unsupported evidence in this I discharged the defendant. j As it is known that the Chinese often i adopt some policy similar to this that they may get possession of the proper ty and wealth of rich residents, it may j be assumed that the persecution o i Chung Shui Yeung was a sinister plot ! the success of which would have re j suited in the forfeiture to the Chinese officials of all the possessions of Chung I Shui Yeung. Unless again restrained (the Hawaiian citizen, Chung, will soon return to the land of his adoption. ASHES OF CAESAR. ROME, Dec. 16. Ashes stipposed to be those of Julius Caesar were un earthed at the base of a column in the Roman Forum today. The column marked the spot where Caesar's body was cremated. A STRAY ITEM OF NEWS. Culled From an Exchange lu llornelS?- ville. He is a good, honest, hardworking skilled mechanic. Whether shoeing a horse, fitting shoes to feet as flat as a mud turtle, welding a chain for some tiller of the soil, or tempering a brittle tool Mr. E. J. Crammer, Blacksmith of 3 Spruce St., Hornellsville, N. Y., finishes his task in a creditable man ner. Our representative found him shoeing a refractory horse. Often as e dropped a foot and straightened uimself up, he pressed his hand into the small of his back, and ominously shook his head, for his back ached and he suffered like nearly every Black smith in our Republic does. Our rep resentative quietly remarked "why don't you use Doan's Backache Kidney Pills." "Well," replied Mr. Crammer, I have noticed a score of advertise ments alout this remedy in our local )apers but I thought they were like every other specific that I had tried." "Try them and see," our representative suggested. "If they do not do you any good, thev won't do you any harm." Some three weeks afterwards a second visit was made to Mr. Crammer, when the following particulars were given by him for publication: "Like a good many others I suffered a great deal from kidney troubles for a long time ana I usea various reme dies but they seemed to aggravate the complaint, as it grew more and more severe. I saw advertisements In our papers, about Doan's Backache Kidney Pills but paid very little attention to them as I had been fooled frequently. I was induced by a visitor who casually droppeel into my shop to try Doan s Backache Kidney Pills. I obtained a box more out of curiosity than expec tation of results. To my surprise the first two or three doses benefitted me, the pain in my back grew less and less and finally entirely disappeared. I am glad to recommend a remedy which does such good work in so short a time to all who suffer from kidney troubles." Doan's Backache Kidney Pills are sold for 50 cents per box, or G boxes for $2.50 by all dealers, or will be for warded by mail to any address on re ceipt of price, by the Hollister Drug Co., Ltd., Honolulu, agents for the Islands. Steamer for Pago Pao. CHICAGO, Dec. 16. A special to the Chronicle from Washington says: The Navy department will very shortly send a steamer to Pago Pago with ma terial for the construction of a pier and other improvements lor tne American coaling station there. Had the war not intervened the government would now have the Mohican at Pago Pago representing the United States at that station. At the first opportunity a warship will be sent to Pago Pago. Anotner will be sent to Delagoa bay. The present policy is to have a vessel at every station where there are interna tional negotiations in property which rnav be used as naval stations.
