The hula dancers of Honolulu are

The strike among the fair contor

The police patrol wagon answered a
call from the corner of Beretania and
Emma streets at 6:15 o'clock last even

arms and shouting curses from the
curb, watched over by a bicycle of
ficer. His face was bloody and he had
apparently received a severe drubbing.
Blood oozed from his left ear and his
lips were purple, swollen and cut. He
was without coat and his shirt was
torn and bloody. . .
(Ross hailed the driver of the patrol
and made a move to climb up to the
seat 1 beside him, resisting violently
when this was not permitted. He was
lifted into the wagon, which was
driven to the police station by way

doing his best to jump out and shouting-

seized the opportunity to fling an out

not -clear (beyond the statement by the
bicycle . officer that the prisoner had
been a passenger on an Emma street
car and had behaved disgustingly and
was warned by the conductor, where

received a ttiorough beating for his

FOR THE COAST
Trans-Pacific Trade Men - Take
French Leave on the
A great deal of mystery surrounds
the 'departure for San Francisco of
two '"young men of this city, who made
a sudden and very quiet departure on
the. Hilonian ..yesterday morning, Har
ry Tomlin3 and W. R. Pittenger, both
connected with the Trans-Pacific
Trade, a weekly journal issued in this
city and owned .by C. R. Buckland, the
present editor of he Hilo Herald, -left
by the Matson liner yesterday morn
ing without telling any except one or
two of their most intimate friends of
When the tickets for the trip were
obtained from Castle & Cooke, the
local agents of the Matson company,
the two did not appear in person but
obtained them through an employe of
the American-Hawaiian Steamship
Company with whom they were
friendly. The desire was expressed
that the names of the two should
not appear in the papers and in fact
should not even be put on the passen
ger list lbut this ecrecy naturally
could , not be observed.
That the business affairs of the
Trans-Pacific . Trade are involved . in
the sudden departure of Tomllns and
Pittenger is strongly suspected. C. R.
Buckland was not notified that his
office force was about to . leave, or in
fact that they had left, till some of
his .friends in Honolulu sent him a
wireless message after the Hilonian
had left port. He was surprised to
hear of the sudden departure and has
made arrangements for other parties
to take charge of the publication of i
the trade journal.
When the Hilonian left the dock
neither Tomlins nor Pittenger was in
evidence, but keeping out of sight of
the crowd on the wharf until the ves
sel was safely out in the stream. From
this it can only be inferred that they
were very desirous that their absence
should not be noted by those on shore.
A. N. Campbell, who has (been act
ing as the treasurer of the Trans
Pacific Trade, in the absence of Mr.
Buckland, stated yesterday that the
money for advertisements and sub
scriptions had not been coming in as
it should recently, and that he had j
intended to write to Buckland to ask
if there was any explanation of the
matter. The news that both Pittenger
and Tomlins had left without any
warning was a complete surprise to
Mr. Campbell and he was unable to
give any explanation of their strange
At noon the office of the Trans
Pacific Trade was locked and no one
was there during the afternoon. A
Chinese boy who was employed as
bookkeeper did not show up but will
probably be found this morning. The
first thing that will be done is to
audit the accounts and find if any ex
planation of the sudden departure may
be found In this way. The Trans
pacific Trade w-ill be issued regularly
as it has been and the only change
will be in the office force, new men
being put in to take the place of those
who have left.
Tomlins was at one time a teacher
in Iolani College leaving that to take
