Chinese Hawaiian Citizen Escapes
Plotters.
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.

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.

Why not generate your power from

Electric Power being used, saves the

water, and does away with high-priced
engineers, and only have one engine to
