HARTMANCUT, HIS WIFE BURNED Harmony With Ruling Party Neces sary to Secure Needed Legisla tion for the Territory. "Y Without Known Reason Servant Runs Amuck and is Shot Before He Desists. Insane with rage, springing from an unknown cause, Mori, the Japanese cook for E. E. Hartman, yesterday morning made an effort to murder ( both the master and mistress of the house. Mrs. Hartman is now suffering from scalds extending from her head to her' waist and Mr. Hartman has seven cuts) about the head and arms, one gash In the throat coming close to the jugular vein. The Japanese is now lying in the hospital with a wound in the left shoulder, where the bullet of Hartman cierced his body. attack upon Mr. and Mrs. Hart man comes from U desire for revenge for some fancied wrong, which both of the Injured ones are unable to understand. The man has been the cook for the young couple since their marriage and the setting up of their household goods In the School street residence where the attempt to kill them took place. He has been well liked by the family, which Includes beside the young people a mutual friend, Fred West. Yesterday morning the cook was out of humor. - During breakfast he seemed to be an noyed and was chided gently by the master of the house for making noises which seemed unnecessary. There was no break in the harmony which might b construed as indicative of the final outcome however. Mr. West left the house for down- . town shortly after nine o'clock. Mr. Hartman has been "ery ill for the past ten days and was just getting about . again. He determined to sprinkle the lawn, and Boon after breakfast took the hose and began to attend to the flowers. While engaged In this .occupation Mrs. Hartman went into the kitchen and found that the cook was keeping up a roaring Are having three pots of wa ter belling. She said to Mori that as dinner would be several hours later, 4kft A ma . w. w a Ana o A w r n . 1 rr , ; (. wia.k iuc 111 c waa uniiciisocn jr ti V i ii Jested that he permu it to die out. The . .Japanese answereu gruiny ana as sue -'-! 1 turned to leave threw the contents of one of the pots of water upon her. The boiling water flowed over the back of her head and down her back, and screaming with the pain she rushed out of the house by a side door, and threw herself on the ground by the hose where the cold- water would flow over the serious burns which she had re ceived. With the first shriek Mr. Hartman dropped the hose, started for the front of the house and saw the Japanese in the doorway with another pot of boil ing water, ready to drench him. He put up his hands and cried "Pau, Mori, no pllikla," advancing all the while. Weakened with suffering he knew he yas no match for the enraged Jap anese, and was going for his revolver. The Japanese seemed to reconsider his Intention and carrying the pot with him went back to the kitchen. Hart man got the gun and ran to the aid of his wife who was still crying for help. I ; As Hartman came around the corner ft of the house he saw oending over his I vife with a butcher knife, raised ready ri ,fyto strike, the insane cook. Yelling, Hartman tried to shoot, but owing to the fact that there were only two shells in the revolver the trigger simply snap ped on an empty chamber. The cook seeing what was to be expected left the prostrate woman ana made a rush for Hartman. Before the revolver could be vol around to the loaded shells there -U might as well send a frog to chipper at the doors of the Court of St. James for what you want, as to send to Wash ington a' Delegate who is not one of and in harmony with either of the great political parties." . And the crowd of people who had filled to overflowing the hall of the Or pheum, to hear former Senator John M. Thurston discuss American politics, cheered to the echo the sentiment. It waar but another way of putting the thought which ran through the entire address of the distinguished orator aiid statesman, who coming three thousand miles for pleasure, heard and answered the call of parly. J A great audience it was whieh gath ered to sit at the feet of the eloquent Nebraskan. ' From the first row of the orchestra to the standing room behind the benches of the gallery, there look-j tii tO'th" spv Va - vi ' earnest "faces. Such an audience sel dom Is given to any speaker, and its ' inspiration showed in the earnestness and eloquence with which he went in to his subject, and explained the full, meaning of political relations. It was a discriminating audience, too, for while the garlands of rhetoric with: which the address of an hour and half was adorned met with applause hearty and prolonged, It was when the speaker came out strong and full as to the duty of a progressive electorate, that the meed of applause was given. The front of the house had been re served for the ladies and there were some two hundred of them' with es-' corts, who filled the main body of the theater. Around them and rising back until the last rows merged with the lines of the building there were voters, men who sat under the spell of the elo quence, held by tne word pictures, taught by the lessons of Americanism and party loyalty. The crowd did not end with the walls either for scores un able to get within, stood for the full time in the door ways listening for the crumbs of logic which came to them. All could hear who were within the doors, for the speaker, after a severe illness, was in fine voice and his ring insr words, uttered clearly and force fully werei intelligible everywhere. t Around the speaker were grouped some of the leading men of the party in the Territory. Chairman Lorrin An drews of the Young Men's Republican club, who was in charge of the meeting, had chairs upon the platform for the delegates to the convention, and in ad dition there were Senator Burton", who had only just arrived from Hawaii, Judge Henry Highton of San Francisco and many representatives of the party who will have the work of the organiz ation upon their shoulaers during the coming fight. In the boxes were the officers of the club and their families and the invited guests. Mrs. Senator Thurston had a box which was filledi with friends, jiirs. Senator Burton was in another box with a party, while on the other side of the theater Governor and Mrs. Dole, Mrs. E. P. Dole and Col. J. H. Boyd and xIrs. Boyd occupied one box and Col. Samuel Parker, Prince David, Prince Cupid, Archie Mahaulu, Senator Kanuha anu a party of friends had the Prince's box on the left of the stage. . , . - . In the main body of t.'ie house there were men of every shade of political opinion. Democrats had prominent seats and Home Rulers elbowed dyed-in-the-wool Republicans. It was a cos mopolitan gathering, Hawaiians, Am ericana and Englishmen and the consuls of other powers resident here, all lent to the meeting their presence and en jo id the presentation of the facts con cerning American political conditions. T T dress is full of meat There is --; a dry sentence In 'It. The people appreciated it from the opening words ; to the preroration and there were preg nant utterances wh'oh mean much for the residents of u.v Territory. The declaration that - Republicans must be on guard was ' cheered lustily and yet when out of the experiences already gained Senator Thurston .said that he' would work for the giving to the com munity the revenues of our port, there was a cheer. The picture of the future of Hawaii, as the outpost of American trade and commerce with the Orient again aroused enthusiasm and the prognostication . that there would be millions spent upon our harbors and naval stations was heartily applauded. I There was no other speech. The ad dress of Senator Thurston was so full that dessert was not wanted and with out any attempt to translate the re marks of the speaker, the cheering au dience was dismisses with the taste of his superb oration lingering. CHAIRMAN ANDREW'S REMARKS. Chairman Lorrin Andrews, in calling the meeting to order said: "We have the prouu distinction to night of opening tne campaign which will be decided at the polls in Novem ber next, by the presence of a gentle man who need3 no introduction on the mainland. The name of John M. Thurs ton (applause) is known throughout the United States, not only as one of the foremost and most prominent citizens of the great comn wealth of which we are so proud to be a part, but as one of the great leaders of the republi can party (applause), which has gov erned our great republic for nearly forty years. All are proud to follow the lead of Senator Thurston because we know the path he points to is not only the path of success but that which leads to national honor and prosperity. Here in far-off Hawaii we can assure the Senator that the opportunity to have him in our midst is an honor that we all appreciate, and It gives me great pleasure to introduce to you the Hon. John M. Thurston. (Applause.) I .1 t" . A v-. -it-....'. ; v r i i- : -a : C . ' si - J i 4! I t 4- i T t Is- The Eruption a Splendid Sight.

SENATOR THURSTON'S ADDRESS Senator Thurston arose and. came forward to the speaker's table amid tremendous applause. When the demonstration had subsided the distinguish ed Republican orator, in a few words of introduction, began an eloquent ad dress, which lasted for nearly an hour and a hair. He said: Ladles and Gentlemen, My Fellow Citizens I have great pleasure and honor in appearing before you tonight. It was most kind of the Republicans of Honolulu to ask me to be present and speak to you at this meeting. My good friends have rather overdone the advertising business, however, and the press refers to me as an orator. I am not. I have never achieved that great distinction. Whatever reputation I may 'have earned on the public platform has come to me because I always endeavored to speak tc my fellow citizens in the simplest and plainest lar.guage, and always endeavored to be fair and just in political matters. I have no apologies to make for being on your platform here tonight. You and I are citizens of the great Republic to whose destinies we are all thoroughly committed. In its progress and in its civilization and its advance ment, its triumphs and achievements, whatever glory it gives to us on the mainland, whatever glory is possible to you in these islands of the Taciflc sea. will come through the mission of the great Republic. We are all citi zens of a common country, and I have no doubt that although you have only recently become a part of our-b-dy politic, that you will grow to love and honor the flag of the Republic as much as those who have lived under it since their birth. To me, fellow citizens, it is a flag for which no man has yet been called upon to apologize. Wherever it floats, on land or sea, it floats for the liberties and equalities of all mankind. (Applause.) There is not a star in Its azure shield that has ever yet been dimmed by an act of national dis honor. There is not a glorious stripe in all its folds that has not stood and gleamed for the elevation of the human race. (Applause.) Tou have come under this flag, and it is a change In your political history. Many of you. perhaps, came under it more or less unwillingly; but you have submitted to thf.- inevitable destiny of this great twentieth century. For it is inevitable to the 'progress of the great nations of the world that weaker peoples, who in the rush and strife of human -events may not be able to protect and care for themselves, that they must come unler the protection and under the guid ance of some one of the great nations of the world. The great nowers of the earth are struggling and striving for commercial supremacy. They are en gaged in a great battle, no less fierce than the contests that take place be tween armed hosts of contending peoos. engasred in this great peaceful warfare for business and for commercial supremacy. I say t you that you will live to acknowledge that I am riiht that it was well for you that one of the great, progressive, liberty-loving rations of the world brueht you in and gave you a place in the destinies of tho American neonle. Had it rot corre as it did. you might have come xmder the ruardiarship of some other of the great powers. In some contest fr mastery and right, the great em pire of 'Germany misrht have seen fit to float hr flag here, a great. m"tm'fi cent empir- of magnificent men. whose love of liberty ad whose proeress've snirlt would have made the empire of Orary a worthy foster mother for Hawaii. Or, in the course of human events, you might have come under the fbg of the great Kingdom of Great Britain, that great kingdom which, in a measure, has civilized the whole round world, whose descendants most of us Americans are, and in whose honor we take a pardonable pride. But it happened, and I believe, in the providence of God, I believe it was right it should happen, that your islands, the gems of the western sea, near est the coast of the great Republic, it became natural that these Islands should come under our fostering care. In the history of the American people I can assure you of one thing no man ever came under the flag of the United States except he came under that flag standing in the sunshine of honor, with all the equalities and the power that nature intended that men should arro gate to themselves. (Applause.) Progressive men and progressive nations never look backward. The con querors of the world have ever kept their faces to the sun. and today if you are to achieve what you may in the destiny of these islands, it is well that you should turn your backs on the past, accept the situation in which you find yourselves, and unite with the lib?rty-loving people of the United States to make our common destiny a g!oriou3 and a grand one. (Applause.) The United States did not annex these islands through any love of con quest or for any ambition of increasing its dominion. The triumphs of the American people, while great in war, have been mainly those of peace. The American people have never waged war for mercenary or improper purposes. Five times the men of the great Republic have been called to arms, but al ways for worthy and heroic purposes. First, in the Revolution, over a cen tury ago, that men might have, freedom in the new world to govern them selves and live outside the enervating influence of despotic power. Second, in 1812, that the outrages to American ships and American sailors on the high seas might forever cease, that the deck of an American ship, like the soli upon the mainland, might be a part of the Republic. Third, in 1847, that the people of the Republic of Texas might have the opportunity of setting their lone star shining in the galaxy of stars in the American flag, that her people might become a common source of progress with u.t. Then again in 18G1, that the Union founded by the fathers the Union so n.'.-cessary to the destiny of the western world, founded upon the r-ghts of individual men to stand equal before the law that the Union which meant the progress and civilization of mankind might not fade from the earth. Secondly, that the great curse of human slavery might by the decree of the American people, be forever put to an end. The world recognizes that all men and of all races and of all colors should be equal in the advancement of progress and civilization. (Ap plause.) Last and grandest of all, the American people went to war in 1898 for no selfish purpose., with no intent of annexing a foot of soil anywhere upon the globe; but for humane and generous purposes, that the power and pres tige of a powerful nation might go out, like the blessing of God, to lift our brothers in Cuba out of a bondage and cruelty that robbed them of all their liberties and opportunities. ' Now. in the course of human events, you have become a part of this great Republic. You are recognized by the people o? the mainland as equals, polit ically and before the law, with us. There is not zn honorable wish of the people of these Islands, there Is not an aspiration of an honorable kind, that you can possibly form, there is not an act of justice that you can reasonably ask. that the American people, In and cut of Congress, are not willing to advocate for you. (Applause.) You do not recall as we do the many phases of American development. You don't understand as we understand the many qualities that have been in the path of our progress. You don't know as we know what a difficult task It has been to make liberty mean what the fathers intended it should mean, even on th- Western Hemisphere. It is for you now to study our history, to investigate our traditions, to familiarise yourselves with our Institutions and to participate with us In all that the future hold out to us all. My fellow citizens, in studying the history of the American people, you rru'it understand, first of all. that all national progress is led by political or ganization. Thore is no power to ach'eve greatness, there is no method by which their institutions may be advanced and preserved, except through the action of political parties. Here in thrse inlands you may not all of you un derstand this fact. Human effort by itself is weak. Individuals are powerless to secure great reforms. There has never been telling act, either in war or peace, except through organization, ard through the participation of great bodies of men in a common undertaking. We of the Republican party welcome you Into tn e-reat Republic. We s-tand ready to enact for you wise and necessary legislation. We hone to give you in as full a measure as we enjoy ourselves the blessings of liberty and opportunity under just and wise laws. (Ap plause.) But you must help yourse've5". Tn the first place you understand but litt1 of u5. and yet from your isolated position in the Pacific sea you hnvo read a"ii studied and understand hctter the American people and our in stitutions and our neds than the great body of the American people under stand themselves. You can see that this must be so. For many years we have been in a stru-rle fr commercKl and industrial supremacy. settM'-g our great internal dleulties and hold ng our' position with the other nations of the world. The eyes of our people h?ve only been turned in a sMght degree to trcse heaut'ful is'ands. therefore ou nation has not yet settled a form as t what tnecp isla-ls may need in the way of legislation and adminl-tratl-m. But it is for the benefit of us both on the mainland and in the islands tat xve con-e together to study the Td of in order that whii.t is necessary for you rriav co"" from the Congress of the XTnited States as an act of justice fortified hv full knowledge of what you need. (Applause.) Mv fe'low cU;ze-"s. when a pew pa-t of the world la takn In uner the focfprlnc oare of a great power, it nee -?ar:ly takes a lore tie for the pno pi on poth sides to understand efch o'hor.

(Apoiause.) HILO, August 29. The- Tribune say! The volcano at Kilouea is In-the most violent state of eruption that has oc curred since 1S92. An earthquake shook IEIo last Mon day night and within a few m!nats thereafter a telephone message from Manager Waldron at the Volcano House, thirty miles away,. stated that the pit of Halemaumau was reflecting a light plainly visible on the clouds. The message also stated that Mr. Wal dron would go at once to the crater's edge three miles away s.nd see what had happened. Tuesday morning Mr.. Waldron-. wad able to report that he had looked: Into the pit and seen , a bailing, tempest, tossed lake of molten lava,. 400 feet in diameter and probably 800 to 100ft tfeet: below the rim of. the grwat cauldron. The face of the lake?, of . liquid' firs would alternately be black and white like the gushing fluid that leap-from. the furnaces of'. a steel plant.. The oxidization and.cooilns.of the fiery fluid, would blacken the surface with: a pall that woufd clothe the vast inverted cathedral In darkest gloom. A. quiver, caused by further subterranean up heavals would breaki.this. oxide ice Into a fretwork of a thousand lacandescent cracks, lighting up the smoke-charge ! pit with a fierce , glare. . Here and there over the surface of' the lake, columns, of white hot lava ; would shoot upwards Ilka- the harmless ' fountains in the- public gardens. The ' great forbidding walls af the "House ( of Everlasting Fire" would shimmer awhile in amaaement. with this unac customed light, and as the geysers of fire would die away, and tne surface again turn black, the whcJe- pit onc more would, be hidden in darkness and smoke., . I All day Tuesday the sanit conditions, 'prevailed. Tuesday nigfct the light from the red hot furnace was. reflected on the clouds. The same conditions.. j held through Wsdnesday, and Thu.-s- ' day Mr. Waldron reported the volcano as "simply magnificent" Wednesday. ' night people living near HUo could see the vivid reflection on the clouds. The present upheaval of lava seam to. be from the very bottom of the- crater and not from a wourd ta the sile as appeared in June. The Tiqull lava Is troubled and convulsed a3 from powerful activity of forces below. j Large crowd3 of IIHo people will g'X ' up Sunday. j ' ANOTHER ACCOUNT. Following is the Herat 3's story: Madam Pele la doing herself troua in. Halemaumau and unless tll signs fall the Volcano House will be the center of activity of Hilo and tourist folk for ' weeks to come. On Monthly night Man ager Waldron .of the Volcano xleuae no ticed a bright glare lu the vicinity of the cratf-r and as th time passed hl3 desire to Investigate grew In like ratio with the brilliancy of the Illumination from nature's furnace. At :30 Mr. Waldron and one of the guests of the hotel took the trail to the crater, arriving there safo'y an hour later. They found the crater rather full of steam but at intervals they could plainly see the lake formed at !the bottom. Mr. Waldron estimated iae distance across the molten lava at iOO feet and from the view point about 1000 feet. Two hours after reaching the erater (Continued on page 4.) (Continued on Page Z).
