IWAKAMI H'Ao has had a murder cas ami Is not proud of the distinction. tus Schwarz, a well known young man. fills an untimely grave, end Arthur Meyners, a youth of 19 year. is In Jail charged wLh murder. It seems thai ill feeling (haa existed between the two men for som time past and the culmination waa the fatal stabbing of Schwarz on Monday even ing after -he returned from a ride. The story may be -beat told by -Cne state ments of witnesses at the coroner's inquest oa Tuesday. Schwairx load been riding Antidote and was returning to the stable to put him up and take out ills own black pony. When he readhed the enable he removed the saddle but on reaching Antidote'a stall found it occupied. A hand was called and the stall cleared. Then Sehwarx got his pony and led him to the space in the stable direct- ly behind the office. Just then young Meyners appeared and entered Into conversation -with Sc&warz during which "hard words were overheard and. the 'witnesses said, Meyners cursed Schwarz. The latter retaliated by striking Meyners in the face "with his fist. Meyners put hU left hand in his trousers pocket and when 'he drew it out ttie was noticed to nave an open knife in it. Some one called to Schwarz to look out as the boy had a knife. Schwarz grabbed Meyners' light hand with both of his own remarking at Che same time, "Aha! you nave a knife. have you?" A -moment later Meyners left arm swung in a curve and struck Schwarz on the right side of the neck, lie immediately released his hold on Meyners' arm and put his hand on bis neck uttering. "My God,' and sank to the ground. Meyners Im mediately fled and a few minutes after' ward surrendered himself at the sher iff's office. In e than fire minutes Scnwarz died without speaking again. From the testimony adduced Mey ners nai been anniung aunng tne day and was inclined to be petulant. The supposition is that Schwarz, -who was a great Joker, said something which displeased him and the fight followed. When Schwarz hit Meyners the blow was not of sufficient force to more than knock, him back and he 1 soon caine lorward towaira senwarz. Dr. Philip Rice gave evidence as to having examined the wound. He found a cut about two inches long severing the JuguVar vein, (muscles of the neck and a portion of the wind pipe. The point of the knii'e touched the spinal column. The deceased has been in the islands for several years and before coming to Hilo worked as a carriage trimmer for W. W. Wright in Honolulu. Up to fifteen months ago he was a har ness maker for J. K. Wilson, and on leaving his employ engaged with Richard & Schoen. He was sober and industrious and saved hs money. He owned a piece of land in Olaa which he wld to the Olaa Sugar Co.. and with the proceeds bought other land outside of and some lots in the town of Hilo. He has a widowed mother and one sister in San Fran cisco and hoped within a year or two to accumulate sufficient funds to re turn to the Coast and provide a home for tlhem. He was a mounter of Hilo Ixidge K. of P. and of the Hilo band. He was buried under " ie aus pices of the lodge from the For eign Church cn Tuesday afternoon. Rev. J. A. Cruzan preached the fun remains were then borne to the hearse by bearers selected from the lodge members, and the procession, headed : by the Hilo band, wended its way to I The Foreign Church followed bv a large crowd of citizens. At the Church Rer. J. A. Cruzan read the Scriptures and then delivered an address in which he alluded to the suddenness of the reaui or the young man and spake f the virtue of self-control. The church was filled with friends of the deceased. Interment took place in tihe K. p. lot in the cemetery. The ritual or the lodge was read and the casket lowered. The pall bearers were V. M.

The Herald say editorially: The Herald will make no comment upon the crime which has stirred Hilo tram center to circumference during the past few days. Whiskey and a bad temper mar be put down as Vhe cause of an act by which a young man, in dustrious and full of promise, lost his life. The apparent Indifference shown by the man charged wtth the murder may be the result of a belief on his part that he was Justified in the act or it may be a desire to appear in the Kght of a desperado In the eyes of a peace-loving camraundty the Jury will decide. The men who saw the knife drawn and who saw Schwarz grasp one hand When they knew the knife was in the other twill have something to "ponder over. Had they acted quickly a life would (have been saved and Hilo spared the disgrace which hovers over it through a crime In whdeh two Intelligent Americana were concerned, one as stayer the other as victim. LECTURED HERE IN EARLY NINETIES Something About the Rev. Edward Griffin Porter Who Was Known In Honolulu. " v mm v . PIC OF IHTERE8T TO' WOKEN. Various Dispatches Concerning' the Genus Temlmne. NEW YORK, March 31. Catherine Reed, daughter of ex-Speaker Reed, who graduated as a lawyer this week. says: "I did not M.udy law to practice it, but only to gain a general knowledge of the subject. I wanted something to do, and decided the study of law would furnish me the desired occupation. My Interest in law Increased with, the days devoted to It." The conversation then turned from law to society. Miss Reed showed i preference for the society of Washing ton. She said: "Society Is more united in Washing ton than In New Tork. There Its in terests are In common." Miss Reed is a brunette, her hair is brown, her complexion fair and she has hazel eyes and roses In her cheeks. She is of medium hight and graceful figure. DOVER. March 31. That woman s equality with man In the legal profes sion Is not yet fully established was shown by a recent occurrence in Dela ware. Mrs, Carrie B. Kilgore of the Philadelphia bar applied for permis sion to argue a case before the Su preme Court oP Delaware, and the judges after consideration declared that they were unable to grant the re quest, as the State constitution did not allow the admission of women to the bar. Mrs. Kilgore was highly In dignant over the matter and has pub licly announced her Intention of pre venting any Delaware lawyers from practicing in the Pennsylvania courts. To do this"sbe will have to deveipp a surprising amount or mobility, as Pennsylvania covers a goodly bit of territory and possesses quite a number of courts. BEATTY. Kas., March 31. Sex Is ar rayed against sex in the municipal campaign here. It is the fiercest polit ical fight ever seen In the State. Happy homes are tottering: churches are in danger, and families are divided on the issues to be settled Monday. All the town officers are women. They were elected a year ago. The opposition ticket thi3 year Is composed entirely of men. In several cases members of the same family are on opposition tick ets and there is a fight every morning to decide which shall hold the baby. while the other goes electioneering The women have tried to make this a temperance town, while the men want to conduct the affairs on a liberal plan Many Ilonoluians will recall the visit to Honolulu some years ago of Rev. .Edward Griffin Porter, news of whose passing away has reached here.

He had expressed a desire recently to return to the GooKt and it was believed by his friends that he would soon leave Hilo. Since his arrival here he has given Kitbsfaetion to hi emjoyers and they Fpeak well of him. He will probably be tried in the July term of court. When the inquest adjourned at noon the prisoner was sent back to the Jail in charge of an officer and seemed rather indifferent, he rolled a cigar-! ette and walked out the street fol-! lowed by the officer riding a bicycle. ' In a moment later a hack came along and Meyners swung himself on to it and rode as far as the Jail where he Jumped off and waited for the officer to arrive. This apparent carelessness was severely commented upon by sev eral gentlemen who witnessed the af fair. Funeral of the Victim. The funeral frvlcs over the re-; mains of Meyner's victim on Tuesday were very impressive.
