A TRUE TEACHER Tie Sermon of Rev. f e Kin-! caifl on Moses. THREE ASPECTS PRESENTED Grandeur of the Prophecies of the Slave Who Became Great Ten Command ments. Last evening at the Central Union church Rev. W. M. Kincaid preached the second sermon of the series on "The Prophets of the World's Great Religions." The subject for the even ing was "Moses, the Prophet of Right eousness," text, Exodus 19:3: "And Moses went up unto God." There are three estimates always imposed upon every great prophet of religion. The first of these is the estimate of faith. The .prophet stands out as the awe-inspiring, wonaer-worKing mes senger of God. Standing on this height the real features become lest in the transfiguration of divinity. Prophecy lifts man from the common people and places him with God. The second estimate is that of crit icism. iHere reason, not sentiment, conducts the investigation. It takes the man out from the transfiguration and makes him real. It discovers that there is. a real fraternity of soul. All ages anki all peoples belong to a uni te versal brotherhood. Then again, there is the logic of his tory. Through the mists of antiquity j idition certain definite co Icit.rf and tr sions are forced upon us. We find that, as with a tree, we are justified in judg ing a man by the shadow he casts in history. Moses is generally known as the author of the Pentateuch. He stands out as the chosen figure by means of which God delivered his first mandates to the world. From a race of the slaves of Egypt he sprung favored above all around him. Like every great prophet he emerges from obscurity. He laid the heart of his religion upon the great moral law. And all scholars agree that the nuggets of moral law, and the clear statements of the ten commandments are the richest and most imperishable of Moses' bequests. He touched the hearts of his fellow men because his own heart was illum ined with divine truth and nobility. He took upon himself a work which he well wrought out. He looms up in the ages as a hero with the mission of making a nation, as a lawgiver and a saint. People do not correctly meas ure the shadow thrown by Moses. There is nothing more pathetic in the world's history than the trials of the people of Moses. There are no more pathetic refugees seeking Ameri can shores than the descendants of the man of Sinai, who are driven from Europe by that monster of the nations, Russia. The time is gone by in which race hatred should flourish. Righteousness is the fundamental demand of the work which Moses wrought. It permeates the whole fab ric. The divine unity makes Moses and his people deathless. Through the clouds of selfishness and sin and ad versity he saw the radiant day ahead. His life and deeds stand out brightly through the centuries that have lapsed. Shall we not remember the greatness of the Jew? We who reverence, the Scriptures must remember that they were Jewish first before thev were nrisuan. And then, too, there charity. 13 At Spreckelsville A gentleman who arrived fmm Man I on Sunday sava that n -nnrmnnJ amount of both new and old work isiat about 11 o'clock and a ple of wen m band by Manager Lowrie, of Spreckelsville. Improvements amount ing to almost as much as the whole of the work of a new plantation of ord inary size have been undertaken or are in contemplation. There is to be a new sj-steni of railway with new equipment. New machinery to cost many thousands has been ordered and much new land is being brought into Mr. Pain the club with which the cultivation. (wounds were made was found.

Those who have been over ;the Kihei tract are greatly impressed with the fertility of the soil and the ! ease with which it can be cleared and plowed. As a matter of fact no more i clearing is required than was done at Oahu. Broken Lc. Charles Swnson, a svaman belong ing to the bark Albert, had his leg broken just below the knee while working in the hold of that vessel loading sugar last Saturday. A bag of sugar missed the chute and struck Swenson on the knee. He was taken to the hospital where his g was set by Dr. Oooper. A TRAM DRIVER Clubbed to Insensibility While on His Car. Near the Waikikl Terminus Prcbatly an At tempt at Rotbery Help Arriv.d Soon. At about 10:45 last nigh4- Antone Rawlins, tram driver, was returning from "Waikikl on his last trip for the night. When in front of Liliuokalani's beach place he heard a man board the car. Before Rawlins could turn. a crushing ' blow descended upon his head. 'This was followed by anothe Blinded with blood and vv.tai senses fleeting he made an outcry for help and endeavored to follow his assailant. The effort was too much. He fell un conscious to the ground. The people of "Wright's Villa heard the cries of the wounded rushed toward ,tim. They man. fouiju mm lying senseless. He was immediately taken into the Villa where his wounds were dressed by Dr. Carmichael, who luckily was at hand. The loss of blood was great. The wounds look as if they had been made by a stone al though the injured man says that they were inflicted with a club. After the wounds were dressed he wras taken to his home on the lane running from Queen street "Waikiki of South street. "When seen at his home, the driver could speak only with great difficulty. "I.was not robbed," he said "my money is all there. I have no Idea who did it. Before I could turn around the man hit me. I heard him call out when he struck me, Tv got him So I think there wras somebody with him. He must have got scared when I called out otherwise he would have taken the money." It is thought that the assailant in tended to render the driver uncon scious at the first blow and then take the money. Rawlins had about $2.5 in change on him and there was about $1.50 in the box. On the trip down there were seven soldiers in the car. When Kapiolani Park was reached, the driver -noticed that three soldiers had left the car. These had evidently got off at some point further up with out the driver knowing it. Mounted Patrolman I. Smith, who has the Waikiki road for his beat, was the first officer on the scene. "I was riding slowly along some distance off when I heard somebody crying 'Help!' I hurried to where the cries had come from and found Rawlins lying on the ground. About that time the people from Wright's Villa came out. I made a diligent search, but the man had made his escape." Manager Pain was telephoned for and immediately went to the scene. He made a thorough examination of the vicinity where the assault was made. The driver's tickets, fares and change ! vere a11 intact- Th news reached the police station good men were put on the case. They have already found some strong clues and before long the assailant will probably be landed in jail. At 1:30 o'clock last night the injured man was resting easily. Although his wounds are serious he will recover. BLUDGEON FOUND. In a second examination made by HILO'S BAD WATER Contaminatefl: L Snpply Has Caused Mncli Sictas. BOARD OF HEALTH OPINION Advice to Citizens-General fews of the Second City Gleaned From Its Papers. HEALTH CONDITIONS. ,(Hiro,ribtwie.) H Ho", 'Hawaii, May 4, 1S99. "Citizens "Mi Hilo: In answer to your f,CI..,iaf nf ho f?rrl' nlHrfr our nninion 1 L 1UL O L W L. L-AJs "--- rt as to the causes of tbe sickness so prev- alent at present and its remedy, we reply thue: It is our opiniori'that the water supply is one of the main causes of -the sickness in town. We urgently advise boiling all water used for either drinking or preparing food. It is unsafe to cool water thus prepared by putting ice into it, as the water is obtained from the same source and freezing it does not destroy the frerms. The water may readily be cooled in bottles placed on ice. (Were it possible," it would he wise to obtain the city water from a source above the cultivated area. . This would require a large expenditure of money, a special appropriation and would be long in coming. ' Boiling and filtering the water is the only safeguard at present. Other factors, in tlje shape of un drained areas, cesspools, etc., about town, contribute their full share in producing un unhealthy condition which 'we are trying to remedy. We respectfully call your attention to the fact that in order to be success ful we must have the co-operation of the citizens, each keeping his own premises in order. A good disinfectant, sulphate of iron a handful to a pail of water sprinkled over suspected places, has the advantage of cheapness, costing ten cents a pound. We have asked the assistance of the Honolulu Board of Health in this mat ter. Respectfully, W. L. MOORE, M. D., Agent Board of Health. Jj. A. ANDREWS, Agent of the Board of Health for the Island of Hawaii. ' R. A. LYMAN, Agent of Board of Health. CHAS MERX, Agent of Board of Health. R. B. WILLIAMS, Port Physician of Hilo. (Typhoid fever is the sickness, to which reference is made.) EXTRAORDINARY SUICIDE.) (Hawaii Herald, May 4.) . Two of the Japanese fever patients in the Hilo Hospital died on Sunday. One of them, taking advantage of the temporary absence of one of the nurses, and while delirious, jumped from the window and made a dash for the bluff along the river back of the hospital. Before he could be stopped the man jumped to the river and his body was found a few hours later by Ed. Hitchcock wedged between a couple of large rocks. NOT A DOLLAR. (Hawaii Herald, May 4.) - The attempt by citizens of Jlilo to secure $2000 per month as a subsidy for the British-American S. S. Co. will probably end in failure. Aside from any effort made by the Chamber of Commerce there was one by individu als not connected with that organiza tion. This canvas was made among business men without satisfactory re sults. The Herald sees no valid rea son for paying this line a dollar. It fails to see it because the British-American line has given a very unsatisfac tory service to Hilo and there is no guarantee that it would be improved even by the payment of a subsidy. A NEW MILL.

Itussel, the typhoid appearing in its most vir ulent form. . Miss Nellie Wise would have been eighteen years of age on the 17t'h of next July. She was a young lady who . will be much missed by a large circle of friends, and hy the community Itt general. She was prominent among the young people of the church, and was one of the hardest and most earn est workers in all the religious and social efforts of the Young People Society of Christian Endeavor, of which she was president. NOTES. (Hilo Tribune. May 6.) The Portuguese mill has closed down, for the season with a total output of 935 tons. New sugar machinery was installed at the beginning of this sea- duu uuu vrnixi lis luau laui auu iu ginru management a larger output has re sulted this year. Professor Maxwell, who arrived by last Kinau, spent Thursday and Fri day at Kukuau, for the purpose of ex amining the soils of that tract for sue- ar plantation purposes, in the interests of Messrs. Mayd well and Wakefield. Mr. Rishter is at present engaged In putting in the $10,000 mill for the Peck and Michelitski coffee plantation. No more land will be turned over by these people for sugar. Nearly all of a fifty acre tract of native coffee trees on the place sold to the sugar men by the Olaa Coffee company have been uprooted. Cane seed will soon be planted. ' SPECIAL AGENT SEVVALL. He Visits His Father and Speaks of the Governorship. BATH, Me., April 23. Harold M. Sewall, former minister to Hawaii and present United States government special agent on those Islands, arrived home today on a visit to his father, Arthur Sewall. Mr. Sewall said that he was a candi date for Governor of Hawaii, but being in the government service, he felt somewhat restricted in discussing the master He was away from his post on leave, and had spent six days In Washington in conference with the authorities. He would not deny that his visit to Washington was relative to the gov ernship of the Islands, neither would he affirm the rumor that the position had been tendered to him by Presi ident McKinley. He said that he would return to Honolulu within a week and it is inferred from this that he reached a satisfactory understanding with the president. 'If Not, Why Not?" A. B. Loebenstein takes issue with the Board of Registration sitting at Hilo. He applied to have his name enrolled and refused to subscribe io the new oath, claiming that he had already conformed to all tie require ments of the constitution of the repub lic. The Board insisted on the carry ing out of its instructions from head quarters. Mr. Loebenstein secured an attorney and filed a written protest.
