Mail which will reach San Francisco a couple of days after f Christmas, will ..do as New Year greet- ; ings, and no doubt' will be equally as; acceptable. j Still Another Excursion. i The Aloha Excursion Company, of ; Portland, Oregon, is out with a circular to all people who have at any time ven-i tared to remark that -they intended visiting the Paradise of the Pacific. ' The -Ottilia uv has chartered the steamer tjut-t and will run a personally con-. duitJd excursion during February. The Queen ha hi' fa overhauled and converted into air excursion steamer;; thousands of dolUt have been spent, on- ijer, and mos't3 :of her upper and' pronfenade deck rooms have two berths,; so that a man and his wife can have the exclusive use of a room without i extra cost. j It is intended to dispatch the steam-j er from Portland for San Francisco, j on February 1; a stay of two days will; be made at. San Francisco, and then j the steamer will saif direct for llilo. i The Queen will anchor for three days in the Crescent Hay, and the excursion ists will visit the crater of Kilaaea without extra expense. Froni Hilo the cruise will be extended to Honolulu, reaching here in time for the annual Floral Parade. Seven days will be spent in Hono lulu, and if so desired the travelers can live on board the vessel without addi tional cost. ! The Prince George, The steamer Prince George, which is reported by cable to have been on the rocks at the entrance to the harbor at Vancouver, is a sister vessel of the Prince Rupert, which has been charter ed to bring a crowd of excursionists to Honolulu in February. In fact it was suggested that if the Prince Ru pert were to be too crowded, the Prince George would act as' a second arm of the i-xcurs.on, and come to tiawati aiso. Indeed the "Crossroads." The Alakea wharf is a scene of ac tivity now a days and wagons of all sorts are to be sen hauling away the freight which comes in on the big steamers from Australia, Canada, China. Jaian, New Zealand. India, the 1 Philippines, Europe and, of course, the I United States. At the new wharf ' inav be seen, side by side, cases that ! were packed in all parts of the world, and at once tne 01a tnougut 01 me "Crossroads of the Pacific" crops up in the mind of the person who gazes on the cargo that has come in from the ends of the earth. It will l interesting to hear by cable whether Captain Phillips, of the Zeal-andia. will manage to get his ship ; into SvdlrPV harbor before Christmas Dav or not. 1 he captain was ueter mined when he sailed from Honolulu that, if it were possible, the '.-A. boat would be inside Port Jackson on De cember 24. The one. day difference in time will be against the' Zealandia, and when we are celebrating the great day, tne peo ple of the Antipodes will be enjoying their great sporting feast of "Boxing Day,.-' Shipping Notes.

With Madera and two other Filipinos, La'uon left Honokaa for Kukuihaele in the morning, the first two named walk ing in front while the others brought up the rear. X v had progressed but a few j.iiies beyond Honokaa when Madera stopped to rest, placing his foot on a stone and renting his head on his hand. While he was in this position, Lahon drew a gun and shot him five times, four times through t!ie head and once through the shoulder. The man. died almost instantly. The other two companions of the murderer and murdered ran away into the brush and testified during the trial that Lahon had patrolled the thickets, refusing to peimit them to get out. Lahon did not deny the facts at the trial, but put .p one of the most peculiar defe j ever placed on record in the. circu' -ts. lie charged that Madera's biot.Vr, Ignace Madera, had placed a gun ,'n his hands and then drew a knife on him. threatening to kill him if he did not murder the man. Lahon asserted that Ignace 's eyes were continual on his and that he was forced to do the deed. Artistic as the defense was it did not serve to secure an ac quittal or modification, and Lahon 's telepathic qualities earn him death upon the gallows. Lahon said that he had no quarrel with the murdered man at all, but it was proved that there was a dispute over a woman.

SAVES WYNNE FREDDIE WELSH .. , WINS ON FOUL CARDIFF, Wales, December 21. After jsard fighting on both sides in the championship fight here last night be tween Frederick Welsh and Jem Dris eoll, the decision was given to Wels'i in the tenth round on .1 c'aim of foul, Tit iseoll butting Welsh on the chin with hip head. Final decision on the part of Presi- j dent Taft in the case of John Wynne, j convicted murderer, reached Honolulu I by cable yesterday. The man's sen .... t fence of death by hanging is commuted to one of life imprisonment, and for the first time in three years Wynne breathed freely yesterday, the threat of ignominious death being for the first time removed from him. Wynne's crime was a ghastly one, he having smashed in the skull of James McKinnon on the steamer Rosecrans as the latter was steeping in his bunk. Wynne was drunk at the time, his weapon being a hammer and at the trial he claimed that he knew nothing whatever of the deed. Many petitions have been sent to Washington including those of the judge and jury that found him guilty asking that his sentence be commuted, as lie was an exemplary prisoner. "T recommended the action," said United States District Attorney Breck ons yesterday, "as I am not in favor of capital punishment." THEIR APPEALS SAVE TWO CONVICTED' MEN SAX FRANCISCO, December 20. Two decisions in appeals of important criminal cases, both of them reversing the lower courts, were rendered today by the appellate court. Tn the ease of Walter Bartnett, former manager of the California Safe Deposit and Trust Company, which had a disastrous failure, the conviction in the lower court was set aside. Bart nett was under sentence of ten years for embezzlement of funds of the Col ton estate from the bank of which he had charge. A new trial was granted to Michael J. Conboy, former captain of police, who has been serving a sentence of seven years for manslaughter. Conboy, while drunk, shot and killed a youth who went to assist him on the street after midnight about two years ago. He said he thought the young man was going to attack him. In a second trial he got off with a verdict of manslaugh ter, which is now set aside. WHITE MAN WINS. SAPULPA, Oklahoma, December 21.
