THE PACIFIC COMMERCIAL ADVERTISER, HONOLULU, FRIDAY, AUGUST 27, 1909. If I 1 1 i J r i i i i i i 1 I T 4 J i -t i - i 1 i r AR1NE Matson "Wharf Activity. It was a scene of wonderful activity round the Matron wharves yesterday afternoon. Stevedores ' and laborers were hustling back and forth unload ing the most dreadful and fearsome looking weapons of war off the Lur line. Along the roadway was a line of gun-carriages and army wagons that made the place look like" the chief' seat of transportation in time of war. The unloading of the munitions from the steamer went on at a surprising speed. The heavy pieces were handled in splendid style and one old salt who was standing by and watching the do ings was heard. to mutter "Honolulu may be in the middle of the Pacific but they sure can unload about as smart as any place I ever seen." Campbell in Good Form. Captain Campbell was in excellent form yesterday afternoon. Most of the members of the Ancient Mariners' club had taken the train to Waianae to see how the good ship Nordlee was get ting on. So it was up to Captaiu Campbell to keep tunings going. He did. He referred to a piece on the front page of yesterday 's Advertiser with regrd to a man addressing the "Com mercial Advocate" in Honolulu, " Philippine" Islajids. There was a note to say that the sender had had bis attention drawn to the fact that f there is but one "1" in Philippines. ! "Huh," said the captain, "I guess that fellow never heard about Dewey going to Manila." He was asked what that had to do with the spelling of the name. "Well," came the answer. "Didn't Dewey knock '1' out of the Philippines?" . . , There was a large silenee while the two reporters and visiting captains who were present, thought over the inner consciousness of the joke. This was broken by the advent of a man with a paper and a loud exclamation about the , rise in the price of beets. Captain Campbell waited till the worst of the talk was finished then he murmured, "And yet they grow the largest beets in all the world in Honolulu'. "Is that right?" in quired the innocent biter. "I never heard about beets being grown here." "At any rate," answered the kindly mariner, "I heard about two police men being found asleep on one beat and if that ain't the world's record for size I don't know what is." Then a drummer who sells cordage, note-paper and crossjack leach lines came in and the stock man from the back of the store stated that the sup ply of blue paint was running low, while, in the sad distance of Nuuanu avenue a cornet player could be heard practising that touching tune "Knock ing, knocking, who is there." ; Chiyo Marn In Early.

With reference to an Advertiser editorial on the subject of wireless telegraphy and the possibilities of it in connection with the Panama Canal and its enabling vessels to pass Hono lulu without touching here for orders, an old salt on the waterfront yester day made a short and succinct remark. He switched the chew over to star board and said "Well, by Gosh, they can't send oil and eoal by wireless." AMUSEMENTS At tiie Crpheum. There has been no falling off in the attendance at the Orpheum in spite of the tremendous gatherings at the Trineess Rink. Messrs. Oro and Earle and the pretty chorus girls have been driving dull care from the heads of the thousands who go to the show in a way that has "been most cheering. .The program this week is exceptional ly good; couldn't be better if the com pany tried or if the audience u.ade its own selections. Manager Cohen struck the key note with his eheap vaudeville and he has got the public into the fashion of going out of doors at night for a little amusement in stead of moping around the house kill ing mosquitoes. Cowboys on the Plains. A picture that is filled with snap and sensation is to be5 shown al 'he Empire Theater tonight under the title "Tales of the West." It is a rattler from start to finish and is known to all motion picture men as a ".thriller". And there is fun enough in it to keep the- audience in good " humor during the evening. Perhaps the feature film should be " Vereingetorix",- (Gaul's Hero), because it is a Pathe and beau tifully colored. It is a historical num ber that will be enjoyed by everybody and it is instructive and consequently should not be overlooked by children of a sehool age. A bit of fierce come dy is shown in "Trying to Get Arrest ed". In the class with wrinkle chasers this film has been in demand all over the mainland since it was first released by the manufacturers. Carlisle's Last Week. Mr. Carlisle withdraws from the Park Theater on Saturday and will take a couple of weeks' rest. He sings a coon song this week with good ef fect. The feature tonight will be the "Ffsh Pirates", a picture full of ex citing sensations and extremely inter esting Other good pictures will make up the program. Some time ago, through an oversight a delayed an nouncement on a billboard stated that "Cohen at Coney Island" would be shown. Many persons visited the Park for the purpose of seeing the laugha ble picture and were disappointed. The film was recalled from the Coast by cable and will be shown this Friday night only. Patrons of the theater who were disappointed that night will be given free tickets on calling at the Chambers Drug Store at the corner of Fort and King streets. PIRATE KID f Continued Troin raffe One.1 made from an old jib, and the Mokolii came back to Honolulu for distillate and some help. Wednesday morning the Mokolii and, the James Makee, the latter with a deck load of coal, started back to ko kua the drifting vessel. They found her in a bad lee drift with the wind Wowing strongly and had a hard time to pass cables. The Makee took the first warr and passed another one to the Mokolii. - The waves were high and the swell was running with mueh snubbing of eable and a hard time for both the towsmiths. A Heavy Incubus. Meanwhile the Nordsee was drag ging nearly a hundred tons of iron chain and anchor. But, with great effort, the two tuggers managed to get her into the lee of Waianae. . Here was smooth water and it was hoped that the anchors would catch. But the water was too deep. '- . The captain of the Nordsee hailed thnt he wanted the Makee to hoist iron with her steam winch. -He said that his winch was busted, ;. - They tried this but there Was noth ing doing. To hoist that weight of metal meant a strong metal hawser and there was too much swell to pass it. Then Johnny Scott sang out to cuti cable and make for a harbor. The had nothing to cut chain with aboard the ship, so a dinghy was lowered and the captain himself came aboard and bor rowed a hack saw with oil and several extra blades. From ll o'clock yesterday morning until nearly 2 o'clock they worked on that chain, which hung from the bow of the vessel down to where the an chors swayed five hundred yards below. They had a tackle on each side to pre vent accident and, when the man with the saw gave the final thrust, he had to leap back to save himself from a blow from the jumping chain. Towed to Anchorage. IKeiieved of her incubus of hanging chain and anchor, the Nordsee respond ed to the pull of the tugs and she was gradually brought back against the wind, until she was in water shoal enough for the Makee to drop anchor and leave her swaying astern. Eben Low, the man whose genius made the "Retrieving" of the ship possible, came ashore in the Mokolii and tried to tell how it all happened. The last words he was heard to say were "And Johnny Scott worked like " and then a large, deep snore. For three days trying to salvage a vessel. Without sleep, without rest, al ways on the qui vive, working their muscles to death and taking all the chances of a deep-sea tow. the men who worked to bring the big vessel back to port have performed a really wonderful feat and one that Honolulu should be proud of. ATGNERLEY Milt SEEKS FREEDOM (Continued from Faze One.1 son Dr. Collins had for believing that Dr. Wayson was telling the truth, and why he placed more credence 'in the statements of Dr. Wayson than in his (Dr. Atcherley's) remarks. Dr. Collins responded that the subsequent actions of Dr. Ateherley had shown him to be irrational. Ateherley was inclined to argue the matter, but Judge Lindsay cut the discussion short by informing Dr. Ateherley that he could not argue with the witness. Thea Ateherley introduced the" reso lution, passed by the Board of Health, allowing any duly licensed physician to treat patients at Kalihi Receiving Sta tion, providing the treatment and medi cines to be used were told to the board in detail. Atcherlev insisted that the resolution was passed as an insult to j him and introduced as evidence of Dr. Wayson 's enmity to him. . He pro ceeded to give a full history of the case but was called to order by Judge Lindsay, who told him that he must confine himself to proper cross-examination and not try and make a speech to the commission at that time. His Leprosy Cure. But Ateherley was determined to prove that the resolution was passed : with the direct intention of hitting him, ! and that it originated from a desire to know what his method of treatment for leprosy might be. Dr. Collins did not believe such to be the case and Dr. Ateherley did not manage to get any thing from him. The next witness was Dr. Sinclair. His testimony covered mueh the same ground as that given by Dr. Collins. He said that he had examined Dr. At eherley in January and again in July, and that on both occasion's he had reached the conclusion that the patient was suffering from paranoia. The doe tor said that he considered Ateherley dengerous to the community. He said that -at any time he might take it into his head to associate any person with Dr. Wayson and his fancied persecution. There was a lot of sparring over paranoia, symptoms, delusions and other technical subjects, which resulted in shedding little or no light on the' subject under discussion. Ateherley hied back to the old Board of Health resolution time and again, and tried in vain to ring in the name of J. Lor Wallach. Mrs. Ateherley kept prompt ing him, and on several occasions he started to ask questions which she had evidently suggested, only to break off with the words "Oh, no, that has noth ing to do with it." Those Leper Pictures Again. Ateherley asked Sinclair if he be lieved him to be laboring .under a delu sion jn regard to his claimed leprosy cure. Sinclair said that he did. That was Mrs. Atcherley's opportunity, and the leper pictures, which she religiously carries about with her wherever she goes, were called into evidence. -They were showed to Dr. Sinclair and he was' asked if ha did not consider them good evidence that Dr. Ateherley had grounds for claiming that he has a leprosy cure. Sinclair said no, that some of his patients had shown as much improvements as the photographs indi cated. Then Ateherley tried another tack and hied him back to the sewer pipe. "If I say that I have seen people in the sewer pipe would that neces sarily be an insane delusion?" "No," came the answer, "I have seen men coming up out of sewer pipes." Fits in the Sewer. Then the doctor asked several questions in regard to the sewer pipe business, ending up by asking why it should be considered a delusion if he said that he had heard Chester Doyle having a fit in the sewer. Sinclair admitted that Doyle might possibly have a fit in the sewer if he wanted to, but expressed the belief that such a state of affairs is hardly likely to come about. Ateherley harped on the question as to whether or not Doyle could have a fit in an 8-foot sewer,"should he feel so inclined, and he spent fully half an hour trying to get Sinclair to admit that Doyle might get into a storm drain and have a fit should be feel so in clined. Then Ateherley wanted to know if it were not well within the bounds of reason that telephone wires might 'be stretched through . the storm drains. Sinclair admitted that he could see no reason why such a thing could not be done, but he looked mighty skeptical over the probability, of such an ar rangement. . Ateherley was preparing to try more of the same when Judge Lind sav shut him off. Walter G. Smith, editor of the Ad. vertiser, was the next witness called. In response to the questions- of the County Attorney, Mr. Smith went over the ground, telling of Atcherley's visit and the communication which he left, and which was afterward published in the Advertiser. He stated that the communication was run as written, and that the introductory article is a true account of the interview which he had with Dr. Ateherley, though not a ver- batim one. Asked how Dr. Ateherley appeared on the night that he brought the com munication to the Advertiser office, Mr. Smith said that the man seemed very nervous. Those Punchbowl Ghosts. When Ateherley started his cross-examination, he trotted out the Punchbowl ghost story, as evidence that others than himself had seen tbe marvelous doings of bodiless spirit. Ateherley read the story through and then said that he considered that story as ex traordinary as the one that he told. Mr. Smith agreed with him on that point, and suggested that the reporter who wrote the article probably intend ed it in a spirit of levity; otherwise he should consider him (the reporter) a fit candidate for examination before the Lunacv Commission. Mr. Smith was the last witness at the afternoon season. Judge Lindsay announcing that an adjournment would be taken until 8 o'clock, when the hearing would be taken up in the of fice of Sheriff Jarrett. Evening Session. Dr. Bruce McV.

TRENT TRUST CO., Ltd. cherley, ibut he persisted in nis story, and declined to become entangled in the hundred and one conflicting lines that Ateherley threw out. Again the communication, published in the Advertiser, was put in evidence. This time it was County Attorney Cath cart that did the reading, and Ateherley became very much excited. When Catheart reached the place where it states that the Punchbowl demonstra tions , were the work of "the gang," referring to Dr. Wayson, Chester Doyle and .others who were alleged to fee practicing for their fiendish work uppn, him (Dr. Ateherley), Ateherley became very much excited and shrieked: "Fes, they did it. They were prac tising. I said so then and I eay so now". ,That gang made those Punchbowl demonstrations while practising in prep aration for annoying me." Chester Doyle followed Dr. Mackall on the stand. In (response to Dr. Atcherley's ques tioning, Doyle swore emphatically that he had never been in a sewer, either for the purpose of having fits or with any other end in view. He told of Dr. Atcherley's threat to blow his head off, and told of his arrest of the doctor in the editorial rooms of the Pacific Commercial Advertiser last month. Ateherley 's cross-examination brought out little, other than a few passages at arms between the two. . Finally the hearing was continued nn- in ijo ciock ttis aiternoon.
