Action, l as been taken to bring before the new legislature a law to protect the wild doves for at least three years to prevent their extinction. A petition is now being circulated. That protection is needed for the turtle doves of this island, particularly those which nave made their homes the valleys and suburbs close to the city, from gunners who regard their lives as only fit for their sporting pleas ure, is amply illustrated by a little in ci'deut which took place iu Mauoa Valley on Monday afternoon. A pair of turtle doves formerly nest ed on the hills above the Eninger place, but for the past seven or eight mouths have made their nest in a grove of trees iu a large lot near the Mauoa road and the Manoa park. They visited one house frequently, at first being very shyr, but gradually having confidence iu the people who resided there. A dove cote is kept ou these premises and final ly the turtle doves were allowed to mingle with the very tame pigeons, ap parently no objection being made by the pigeons to their new fri'ends. At feeding time the doves kept on the outer edge of the pigeons, now and then picking up a grain of wheat or corn. Gradually they came into the circle and for months have been regard ed by the occupants of the premises as pets. In the early morning the call ot one dove to its mate was particularly attractive. Simply Slaughter. But gunners now and then ranged over the low foothills, although Maaoa is in the city limi'ts, and guns have no place there. The owners of the dove cote watched anxiously for their pets after hunters scoured the hills. Occa sionally a shower of bird shot fell upon their roof ami a pane of glass was once broken by boys who were using a 22-caliber rifle. On Monday afternoon sli'ots were heard upon the hill, and after one dis charge, which was uncomfortably close to the houses of that section, the Chi nese cook ran into the house calling for the mistress and demanding that she g'o to the kitchen door. There lay one of the turtle doves, blood stream ing from its bill. The Chinaman, with tears in his eyes, explained that after the shot he was surprised to hear a fluttering of wings directly over him and the dove came down almost at his feet, and as he leaned over to pet it, he saw blood. The bird expired alnrost immediately afterward. Petted and fed and treated so kvndly the bird, after being shot by an irre sponsible hunter, flew back with its last remaining bit of strength to the house which had so befriended it, and fell dead. Yesterday its mate called and called, and flew anxiously about the premises vainly looking for its com panion. Just what satisfaction the hunter got for shooting aimlessly at one of the prettiest of the feathered inhab itants of the valley, is not known. Time to Act. It is time the police department acted against the promiscuous shooting which is continually going -on in Mauoa and near College Hills. Five and eight years ago shooting was not dangerous there as there were few homes in the valley. Today it is as thickly populat ed and housed as Makiki, and firearms should not be permitted to be discharg ed there. Fearing that doves will be extermin ated W. H. Charlock has taken the flat ter up and will have a bill introduced before the next legislature to prevent indiscriminate shooting of these pretty birds. A petition has been circulated and signed by the following: "To the Senate and House of Represen tatives, Territory of Hawaii: "We, the. undersigned licensed sports men "of tin- City and County of Hono lulu, respectively petition your honor able bodies to close the shooting season on doves for the Island of Oahu till August 1, 1913.

Sever the Loving Couple j and All Is Well. The festive little habeas corpus writ came in handy and for once received its proper use, yesterday, when little ilaru Taniguchi appeared before Judge Robinson in the circuit court and smiled in the judge's face while her at torney, Joseph Lightfoot, moved that the writ be dismissed. For the cruel husband who was going to carry her off was a hundred miles at sea and she was perfectly free. Her husband Umetaro Taniguchi ac cording to her claims, brought her from Hilo to Honolulu by physical foree which became necessary to overcome her intense love for the town on the crescent bay. After he got her to Ho nolulu he brought her to a Japanese hotel and, still according to her claims, held her confined there for a week. Day before yesterday he took her on board the Manchuria after securing passage for both of them to Japan and locked her below. Xine o'clock Monday evening Fasa kuohi Fuji, a friend of the distressed heroine called on Lightfoot and told him the lady's pilikia. Lightfoot pro cured a warrant of arrest on a writ of habeas corpus at once and at midnight the high sheriff went down to the steamer and found everything accord ing to the story. Haru protested em phatically any desire to return to the Land of the Cherry T-lossoms and by the time she appeared in court the steamer had left the port. Incidentally the husband left without her, his better half. DEVOTED WIFE JOINS Swoons at News of His Death in Hospital and Does Not Recover. Particulars of the death of Charles Christian and his wife on Kauai, who were reported by a wireless telegram to have both died the same night, came yesterday from Lihue. Mr. Christian had beeu ill for a couple of weeks, and as he became weaker it was found necessary to send him to the hospital. He was taken there in the forenoon and about ten o'clock at night it was seen that he had not long to live, .having had two hemorrhages. His wife was called to his bedside. As she reached it Mr. Christian died, and the shock was so great that Mrs. Christian swooned, became unconscious, ami all efforts to- get her back to con sciousness were unavailing and she passed away, death being due to heart failure. She had been a sufferer from heart disease for some time. The tragic death of the two kamaainas caused deep regret all over the Garden Island, where they had resided for many years. Mr. Christian went there about thirty five years ago and was first a sugar boiler, later head luna and lastly as sistant manager of Hanatnaiila planta tio n. They leave ten children. Mrs. 'hris lian was formeily Emma Spencer. Her halt-brother is Sheriff Ptia, of Hawaii. Mrs. H. K. Vivichaves and Mrs. H. Flint are half-sisters.

Embezzlers have occupied a great deal of the time of Chief McDuflie for the past two days, and the wire less again figured in a case. While tlie chief, after his experience with Jue Yuen Mow, rather shies at cabled or aerogrammed information and re- ; quests to arrest people, he was willing j to take one more chance and landed I his man nicely. The wireless was from Papaaloa and was to the effect that a Japanese named Xanagawa had embezzled $500. He was to be held, if found, the victim being on the way up to prefer charges against him. After some searching, the chief caught the man just as he was about to board the Manchuria for Japan, three hundred dollars being found iu his trunk. He claims that he can make 'the deficit up. Another embezzlement case was landed when Chu Dai Duck, a Korean, was arrested in Kalihi by Officer Woo of the special staff. Chu Dai x ad been the "ditchman" and head of a hui of Korean cane contractors at Waialua, where they had been working ground ever since the strike. It appears that they were always more or less quarreling, but managed to hang together for a year or so. Finally Chu Dai went to collect the month's wages due the nine, amount ing to about $13 and promptly disap- ' peared. They found him and demanded ' that he come through with the coin, j but he consigned them to warmer cli mates and departed again. They then laid complaint with the police and after a prolonged search the man was located working for a family named Cockett, in Kalihi BUSY IN LIQUOR DEFENSE The Republican Territorial committee got busy last night and passed a resolu tion along the same lines as that put forward by the chamber of commerce. The meeting, which was not an open one, lasted for two hours so that the matter must have been thoroughly thrashed out. The resolution run as follows: "Whereas, There are reported to be several bills pending before congress vitally affecting the interests of the people of this Territory, and "Whereas, One of these bills is in di rect opposition to a plauk in the plat form adopted by the Republican Party of the Territory of Hawaii, in con vention assembled on the 12th day of September, 1010, to wit: The Republi can Party regards the plebiscite as a conclusive expression of the sentiment of the people of this Territory in favor ef the present liquor law and of its enforcement in good faith. We there fore pledge our representatives in the legislature against any change or mod ification of that law, and demand its faithful, impartial and vigorous en forcement,' and pledge them to make the necessary appropriations to arry out the law.'' now, therefore, be it Resolved, That the Republican Party of Hawaii deprecates the- practice of submitting to Congress measures af fecting the local affairs of Hawaii, which have not first received the ap people of this Territory, and Resolved, That the Congress of the I'nieeil States be and herein- is re spectfully petitioned not to pass any bills unless first approved by the peo ple of Hawaii through their Legisla ture, and Resolved, That copies of this resolu tion be sent to he President of the United States; the Secretary of the In terior; tlie President of the Senate, the Speaker of the House of Represenra tives, the Chairman of the Committee of Territories of the Senate and of the House of Representatives, and to our Heletrate to Congress.'.'
