A Chinaman lay dreaming in his bunk in a small tenement in China town, back of Wo Fat's restaurant, yesterday afternoon about 2 o'clock. He was aroused by a slight noise in the room, and upon opening his eyes was astonished to see a stranger in the act of searching the pockets of his trousers which were hanging from a nail in the partition. The Chinaman looked on for a few seconds too amazed to say anything. Then he arose to a sitting posture, whereupon the stranger turned about quickly and took his hands from the clothing. "What you want!" inquired the owner of the trousers. "Oh, you want buy kukui nuts!" and the intruder coolly produced a handful of polished nuts and showed them to the roomer. But the China man was not so easily fooled and he made more inquiries. The visitor sud denly decided that he had business elsewhere, for he bolted from' the room and disappeared. The Chinaman went to the police station and was referred to the Chief of Detectives, who was then with his entire force on duty at a peaceful meeting of the United Chinese Society. Through Officer Aho the Chinaman told his story of the attempted robbery which had taken place not more than twenty minutes previously. The Chief sat on the stairway reading an after noon paper while the information, ac companied by a good description of the mysterious visitor, was being ab sorbed into his system. Finally, the Chief called the Porto Rican officer, and ordered him to ac company the Chinaman to the scene of the attempted burglary and then report-back to headquarters. The Chief and his entire force then returned to the police station. The opportunity to spread the detective force out over the Chinatown district and look for a slim, dark-featured man, with black hand kerchief about his neck, a man who might be a negro, was lost. Entitled to Mercy. On Thursday morning a little Span ish boy, aged ten years, was given a year's sentence to the Reform School, for complicity in the theft of oranges from the warehouse of May & Co. A small crowd of Dewsboys had a hand in the affair, but only the Spanish boy and a Portuguese lad were found guilty. The police afterwards learn ed that the Spanish boy, whose name is Gonsalves, is about the sole sup port of his sick mother and three brothers and sisters. He is a newsboy and his income from the sale of morn ing and afternoon papers amounts to from 60 to 75 cents a day. It is said that this is all the family have to live on. The father was in the Queen's Hospital some time ago, and after com-1 ing out looked for work, but could get none. lie finally went to San Francisco. The mother is not at pres ent in a condition to work, although work has been offered her. It is understood these circumstances have been laid before the County At torney's office, and probably the lad will be given an opportunity to repent without going to the Reform School. The police will seek to reopen the case, have sentence suspended and the boy placed on probation for the usual period of time. Remorse Overtook Him. After celebrating wrell but not wise ly, Henry Kualae awoke yesterday morning in a melancholy frame of mind and decided to commence the year with an attempt on' his life. He got a razor and a trowel and let it be known all over the neighborhood of Lililia street near Vineyard that he intended to kill himself. Captain Parker was notified and he took the man to the police station for safety. SALE OF GCVEINMENT LOTS, AU WAIOLIMXr, HONOLULU, OAHU.
