T-, THUBSDAX, SEPTEMBER o, 3900 PRICE FIVE GEXia HAWAII 10 THE FORE UTAH CELEBRATION IT Fifth Annual Reunion of Pacific Island Missionaries. HAWAIIAN SONGS WERE RENDERED AND ANECDOTES BECOUNTED OF THE PIONEEB WORK OF MOB.KONS HEBE. Tableau Included Children in Costume of Hawaiians President Cannon's Experience in Hawaii. Hawaii was to the fore at Salt Lake, Utah, on August 11. On that day the fifth annual reunion of the Pacific Islands missionaries was held at Saltair, on the shores of Salt Lake. It provad the most notable ever held and was largely attended, says the Salt Lake Tribune In describing the event, fully 4,000 persons being present, 'lhe program was an extremely Interesting one. First came the singing of America" by the entire assembly, and it was estimated that at least three thousand voices were raised in the grand old anthem. B. F. Johnson offered the opening prayer, after which the Beezley brothers, Matthew Noall and Ellhu Barrcll rendered the "Missionary's Farewell." All of these havo at one time or another served as missionaries in the Pacific Isles. The appearance of President George Q. Cannon on the platform was me signal for a burst of applause. His bubject was the "Introduction of the Gospel to the Pacific Islanders." He gave a brief but at times a very interesting talk on the introduction of Morufonlsm into the Isles of the Pacific and said that he was proud that he had been one of the pioneers in the work, which really had but just commenced. He had spent iuur years of his life on the Hawaiian ls.auds, going uiero in December, 1S50, m company .ith Hiram Clark, Thomas h!ttle, Henry V. Ulglcr, Thomas Mon.J( John lrnon, William Farrer, Janii Haw-Kins, Hiram H. Blackwell ar.ii j.aiues KetK'r. These were the first iiV Jou-aries to the Hawaiian Islands. . Cannon also translated tha ..ook ( i .Mormon Into the Hawaiian age. jo told of the early struggles v.: . the natives and gave a meed of pi- .e to the brethren who had since i: J the way blazed by th- . first l Hsslonnries. Tho Hawaiian gleo by ftv native kalians, Naihe, Kololli, Plllani, Hcnell and Davika, was one of the features of the afternoon services and though the music sounded somewhat crude to ears unaccustomed to the language, It was thoroughly enjoyed by nil the missionaries present, and especially by such as had no heaid Hawalians sing for many years. Miss Emma Percell also sang very sweetly and to the delight of tho audience, while tho native ancient chant by Pnahao, a Hawaiian, the accompaniment to which was by three native girls in costume, was novel in the extreme to most of those present. Fifteen small children then followed with a Samoan song, and so cleverly was the work done and so well was their make-up that many debated the point whether or not they were veritable Samoans. They were all children of missionaries, most of whom had been born on the islands. A typical Mormon religious service In Samoa came next and was given oy returned missionaries, a Samoan hut having been built on tho platform for the purpose. "The Arrival of the Mail at Society Islands," was interpreted by returned missionaries and proved to be very interesting, and the series nf tableaux, showing events In the lifo of missionaries In Maoridom filled out the afternoon program and ended a very pleasing entertainment. Same of the tableaux and the Hawaiian and Samoan children in native costume were elaborately pictured by the Tribune, half a page of the paper being devoted to the celebration. The dancing floor was well filled soon after and was kept la a rather,, congested condition until S o'clock, when the visitors were called to see illustrations of the beauties of the foliage of the tropics and take a glimpse of the life, habits, customs and general peculiarities of the natives of the Pacific Isles, which were thrown on a screen by a stereopticen. The triangle on the lower floor to the east was crowded, as was also the dancing floor, and had the third floor been thrown open to the public, as it should have been, twice 'as 'many would have been able to see tfce splendid views, which were-handled by Del Breexley, assisted by Bert Asper. Among the pictures shown was one of President Cannon, which was taken in Hawaii in 1S53, rescued from & ship-wreck and afterwards copied and preserved. Another of interest was that showing the rescue of Elder James S. .Brown, who had been condemned to be burned, but whb was saved by women. While the sixty-fire scenes shown were largely in connection with the propagation and growth of Mormon-; ism Im the islands, there were many showing also the general progress of the natives since the advent of: CspL Cook.

Schiller and H. Zerbe, Germany; George A. Lucas, Austria; W. J. Weir, Ireland. Attorney Benjamin L. Marx was admitted to practice in the court In the libel of Christopher Collins and others against the bark Empire, Attorney George A. Davis of the firm of Davis & Gear asked that the court make an order that the bondsmen of the bark. J. A. Gilman and- Charles H. Atherton, pay the amount due the sailors. Mr. McClanahan of counsel for the bark objected strenuously to such an order being made. They had given notice of an appeal to tho United States Circuit Court, ir the bondsmen paid the amount the case on going to the Circuit Court would be thrown out of court as being only one of straw. The court took the case under advisement, promising to render an opinion at 2 o'clock on Friday afternoon. GiVIL RIGHTS RESTORED TO FOUR OLD OFFENDERS. GOVEItNOB DOLE ISSUED DONS.

LITTLE IS WABML' UECOMMENDED FOB DELEGATE. A Friend Becalls the Debt of Gratitude Which Hawaii Owes to the Jurist What He Has Done. John H. Wise of 16 to 1 fame, in speaking of the political situation to a Republican reporter yesterday, said: "I understand thaf there are a number of candidates for the republican nomination of delegate to Congress. Sam Parker, W. O. Smith and H. P. Baldwin are out for the place. Cf the three candidates I think Parker is the strongest, but, in my judgment, he will be an easy man to beat. "J. O. Carter is coquetting for the democratic nomination. Although I understand that Mr. Carter says he doesn't want the place, I believe if it were offered him he would accept" "What about yourself?" asked the reporter. Mr. Wise smiled significantly and. softly said that he wasn't a candidate. "How about Prince David?" "He is not after the place. If Mr. Carter should receive and accept the nomination he would be a difficult man to beat; in fact, I don't believe that he could be defeated." Another gentleman who has been a resident of Honolulu for twenty-two years said: "Wljile I like Sam Parker first rate, I don't believe that he, Is the right kind of a man to send to Washington. A man may be a good fellow and still not know anything about statesmanship. We should send a live, aggressive man to the national capital. Judge Gilbert F. Little is the best qualified man that I know of for the place. "The people of Hawaii, irrespective of party, owe Judge Little a debt of gratitude. If it had not meen for Judge Little we would not be enjoying the many privileges that we have today under the Organic Act Single-handed, Judge Little fought for an unrestricted franchise for this Territory. Against Smith, Hartwell, Armstrong and others at Washington he waged warfare and won. Had it not been for Judge Little we would now be handicapped by a property qualification which would prevent many poor Hawailans and al30 whites from voting. "Judge Little also knocked out of the bill the life tenure of judges. He secured equitable land laws. It was through his instrumentality that the judiciary of the Territory was uplifted by ttie appointment of several jurists who believe In American principles and know and respect the rights and liberties of individuals. Judge Little is largely responsible for the want of the cordial relations-heretofore existing between bench and bar. All honor to the man. "Now, we want to send as a delegate to Washington a gentleman of address, one conversant with public men and measures and who possesses a knowledge of American politics. We want an indefatigable worker. The Territory needs large government appropriations for public buildings and harbor improvements. I know of no man who could do so much work and secure so many appropriations as Judge Gilbert F. Little. If he is nominated he will sweep the Territory. He Is a platform all by himself. He has been tried and found not wanting. His record is one of lofty patriotism." HOBSE BADLY TNJUBED. Iron Bails Pushed Upon Him Cut- an Artery. One of the horses of a handsome large team belonging to Hustace & Co.. employed in hauling rails up Alapal street from the wharf, was badly hurt on King street opposite the stables. The wagon was piled heavily with rails, which from some cause slid forward, striking one of the horses. In kicking, jumping and rearing the horse was badly cut, a blood vessel being severed, from which the animal bled profusely. The animal would undoubtedly have killed himself had he not been released from his position by the Stockyard hands. The animal received prorfpt surgical treatment. Orphean Net Builty is Mice Chirgel Judge Wilcox Says There Ought to Be No Discrepancy Between the Isw and Ioceases. The case of selling liquor on Sunday against Mitchell Chapman, the manager of the Orpheam Cafe, was heard in the police conrt yesterday afternoon. Tkecase was dismissed and the discharged. Several witnesses ve examined, who testified that they hadT boaght lienor at the cafe en Swday. They had not registered, neither were they hoarders or ledgers. v Mr. nTfiB was called as a witness te his own defense and testified that the management of the corporation wkich runs the Orpkeam had pasted Bfltiesa m the dining room that only mm Id Msjers and borders would he served wtm Uaw; thai, his datks precluded him from being at all times able to see to whom lienors were sold and that the servants, although they had been warned that only boarders and lodgers were to be served with liquors, had served people who were not entitled to be served without bis knowledge. The license that .was given the company gives the corporation the right to serve guests of the hotel and their friends with liquor. The law says that only bona fide boarders and lodgers shall be served. The discrepancy was very apparent between the law and the license. After the testimony was all in, Attorney E. B. McClanahan for the defense stated to the court that the hotel was a respectable place, duly licensed to sell liquor; that the management was running the cafe in a respectable manner and that he thought that the police had other and more important duties to perform than arresting and making trouble for the manager of the cafe, who was conducting the place in a decent way. There was no positive evidence to show that the defendant was guilty of the offense charged and he did not think that the court could convict on the evidence given. The sheriff argued that there was no complaint to offer against Manager Cohen of the Orpheum, but that the testimony had shown a very lax manner of running things at the cafe. The manager, Mr. Chapman, had testified that he was in charge and that he laid all the blame of the liquor, selling en the Chinese servants. He thought the manager had tried to make good business by selling to others than bona fide lodgers and boarders. Under the circumstances and the testimony heard the defendant should be convicted. In giving his opinion, Judge Wilcox said: "I can not say without of a doubt that this defendant Is guilty. The license given and under which he acted says that the liquor may be sold to the guests of the cafe and their friends, while the law says that only bona fide lodgers and boarders shall be served. It is my opinion that the authorities, in granting licenses, should conform to the law. Defendant discharged and case dismissed." HODGINS-KEATING. Married at the Besidence of Mr. Whitney Last Evening. Dr. A. Gordon Hodgins was married to Miss Nora Keating, at the residence of Pred W. Whitney, -on Itiug street, at 8 o'clock last evening. Chas. Aiken was beet man and Miss Whitney bridesmaid. The Bfchop of Fanopolis performed the ceremony. Tho wedding was strictly a private one, only the most intimate personal friends of the contracting parties bsing present. A beautiful supper was served at the Whitney residence and later Mr. and Mr3. Hodgins drove to their cottage at the Hawaiian hotel annex, at Waikiki. They -aero given god-speed, with the wishes and prayers of all present for a long, prosperous and happy life, in which all their many friends in Honolulu join, including The Republican. OFFICER HAHRAHAN TOOK I HOT STOKE. THAT WAS THE TESTIMONY OF WITNESSES IN AH CHONG CASE. Judge Humphreys Scores Police for House-Breaking Without a Search Warrant Ah Chong Found Not Guilty. The greater part of the day yesterBay was consumed in Judge Humphreys' court in hearing the case of Ah Chong, charged with selling opium on the 18th of June last Ah Chong was defended by. J. T. De Bolt and A. G. M. Robertson. Efforts were made by the prosecution to introduce as evidence opium pipes and other implements. The defense objected to the proposed evidence on the ground that It wasn't lawfully obtained; Ah (Thong's house was broken into by the officers without a search warrant. Judge Humphreys sustained the objection. He administered a severe rebuke to the officers. He read a decision in the 116 United States reports, page 629, which had a direct bearing on the case. There was a proper and a legal way to enter a person's residence, and that was by search warrant. Ah Cheng's house had been broken into and broken into unlawfully. Because police officers were delegated to preserve the peace they had no right to commit a breach of the pence by break-Ins into a person's residence. A man's residence was his castle. He had rights there,jsacred. Inviolable rights. A policeman, when he entered that residence without a search warrant, was a law breaker: Ah Moon, a witness for the prosecution, .testified to what the policeman took;frem Ah Cheng's residence. A large white policeman, with, mastache, walked off with a stove. ., "Was it red hot?" inouirad Mr. Robertson. "It was hot. replied the witness.

CHILDREN AB04IT THE STQCIUE WHAT A BEPOBTEB SAW WHO WENT OVEB THERE LAST NIGHT. Hawaiian Workman Calls Attention to Evil That Will be Wrought When Iwilei Children Beturn to School. A Vv V 41 "Be it resolved that as a society we protest ngaint the toleration of the evil existing at Iwilei. We also commend the fidelity to public morals shown by the Honolulu by any other newspaper or papers and by any of our citizens in denouncing thi8 . .abomination and laboring for 4 its overthrow." sj a 4.4' 4' The above is a copy of a resolution unanimously adopti1 by tne Young People's Society of the Christian church last night at a meeting specially called to discuss and take action upon the Iwilei evil. The Republican has been constantly assured by Christian men and women in this community that it was right in its fight against this pest house of sin and vice and that it was receiving the support and endorsement of the true Christian men and women of the community. There has never been a moment when this was doubted despite the criticism of men high in official, business and social circles who believe in compromising with vice and throwing the protecting arm of the police and Territorial government about it. All manner of foul assaults upon this paper have been made by apologists for vice and crime because The Republican had the manhood and courage and decency to demand the destruction of police-protected Iwilei and demand that the government, instead of protecting so foul a spot, should enforce the law which would bring about its complete annihilation. But all this abuse and denunciation of The Republican has failed to cause the paper to abate one jot or tittle of its determination to continue this fight in behalf of good morals and clean government until it had won the victory. This endorsement of Christian workers Is most encouraging. It shows that the thinking Christian people, the real backbone and sinew of true Christian workers in the community, are endorsing and supporting The Republican in its light, and with such endorsement "the gates of hell shall not prevail against it." When two. members of The Republican staff visited Iwilei a week ago the presence of small boys about thp stockade was especially noted and a reporter of the paper who speaks Hawaiian was sent over there last night to especially investigate the conditions regarding the appearance of children about this foul place. The reporter found at least twenty children around the pen, boy3 rushing up to hacks seeking for the post of holding the horse after the manner of the boys around the Waikiki beach resorts on Sundays who hold horses or tie taem for visitors, so as to earn the nimble nickel. On the sea side of the pen one boy not over eight or nine years of age -was sitting partly insida the gate intently watching the conduct and proceedings of the women. This little child was not over fifteen feet from two of the French women who wen. carrying on their "trade' within the stockade. The reporter wtnt to the policemad H at tiie main entrance and told him of this incident, the officer returning with ihe reporter to where the boy was sitting. As tne boy saw the officer coming ne and stepped outside of the giic In talking of the matter the officer &ud that it was impossible to keep the children away from the place and sometimes some of them got Inside because one ooicer could not be watching four gates at widely different points at the same time. The reporter spoke to some of the children, asking them where they lived. All replied, that they lived in the Immediate vicinity of the pen, some of them not over half a block away. A number of-these children were hanging around the gates listenings .to the remarks of the vile. women Inside. While making km investigation the rsforter visited the "steam laundry !n the rear vicinity. In 'talking with one of the men employed there he learned that there are fourteen girls employsd la the laundry, lx "' being mere children, all of whom live at Iwilei In the near vicinity of the "joshlwaru." These girls and children formerly walked to and from their work at the laundry, but they met so many insults from the Japanese men who awn the inmates of the Mjoshiwaru" and from men visitors to the place that it became necessary for their parents to demand that the laundry take them back aad forth from their homes to the laundry in wagons, which is being done. Another matter that this laundry workman called the reporter's attention to, and it is one deserving of the greatest consideration, is the contaminating influence these boys and girls who daily witness evils of Iwilei will have upon their young companions at school. Just now the children are not at school, but beginning next Monday they will return to school and stories of what this boy and that girl has seen at Iwilei will be only too soon told among the children, arousing the curiosity of every child to see this den of vice. The awfuiness of this situation of affairs struck the reporter like a shot. The very thought of what might result from this condition struck him, man of the world as he is, as something truly appalling. It Is something 'oo terrible to contemplate. And yet the Territorial governor of Hawaii not only declares this to be a "necessary evil, but throws the protecting arm of the police around it. How much longer will the people permit this condition of affairs to continue? Water Rights Lost Ti tie People Daily. Council Awards Those in the Forests Above Wabiawa to Wailua ' Agricultural Company. At Mx executive session morning the water rights to the lores above Wabiawa was given to the Wi alua Agricultural Company. Then were also bids from Iho Wahiawa S gar Company, JohnEmxneluth and D - KfnhnTn "v In considering the matter every d; tail of each proposal was carefully gone into. The Waialua company di not say at what figure It would suppl water to Wahiawa, so that final actio could not be taken; but it was decid that if the supply furnished was abunr dant and the charge reasonable the company should have the rights. It is understood that the failure t get the water will not cripple the Sugar Company, as it now has an immense supply which Is capable cf further development. With the Wahiawa water, however, the supply would have been practically unlimited. EXPERT TESTIMONY III THE DUNREGGlN CASE. CHIEF ENGINEER OF THE TUG FEARLESS NABBATES THE WOBK PEBFOBMED. Marine Engineer Johnson Tells About a Sheering Strain and the Value of the Bark Dunreggan. United States Commissioner Robinson is still occupied in hearing evidence in the Dunreggan libel case. Bert Wheeler, chief engineer of the tug Fearless, told of the work performed by the Fearless In pulling the Dunreggan off the reef. From 9 o'clock in the evening until 3 o'clock the following morning the tug pulled at full speed. At 4:10 p. m. the vessel came off the rocks. "How much coal did you use?" Inquired Attorney Stanley." "I couldn'fsay." "Approximate." "Twenty-five tons, I should say." William A. Johnson, superintendent engineer of the Wilder Steamship Company, was the next witness. He testified that he had been a resident of Honolulu. He had been twenty-one years with the steamship company. He was a .marine engineer by profession. He was acquainted with steel and Iron vessels and familiar with the cost of steel hulls, having worked at the Union Iron Works in San Francisco prior to coming to Honolulu. "Have you examined the Jsean! "I ?" asked Mr. Hatch. have." "In your judgment what Is aha worth?" "Seventy thousand dollars." The witness was then asked If a steel vessel were hard fast on the reef and was being surged by the waves what effect it would have on the vesseL "There would be a sheering strain on the rivets and the plates which, if continued for any length of time, would mean the destruction of the vessel,"' answered the witness. Mr. Johnson was on the stand when an adjournment was taken until today. w THAT LABOM DAT PABADI. It Has Aroused D. Q. Camarimeo to Aggrsir i Aetissu D. O.

TWO STEAMEBS A MONTH TO PI.T BETWEEN THIS POBT AND SEATTLE. Jim Hill of the Great Northern Is Laying the Keels for Two Vessels for Coasting Busiues3. "Seattle Is getting into shape to ship dressed meats to Honolulu, and the great city of the Northwest means to make San Francisco hustle If thsy want to hold their trade here," said St. C. Sayres, a representative of Ralner beer and other Seattle houses, yesterday. Mr. Sayres returned from a hurried business trip to Seattle on the Aorangl on the 1st. Just a month previous he and Col. Chas. J. McCarthy left Honolulu on the same boat on a hurried mission of tremendous Importance to save Honolulu from a beer famine. It will be recalled that when the laws regulating the coastwise shipping of the United States went Into effect and Hawaii's ports fell uuder that category, the ships of the Canadian-Australian company, which had heretofore handled the traffic between the Sound and Honolulu, could no longer do so. This for a season threatened to shut Seattle beer, produce and all perishable commodities out of this market. The supply of Seattle beer was low just then and as It could be shipped here only by existing lines through San Francisco. It looked as If It would be barred out. At this crisis Col. Mr. Sayres hied them .JMbthwardUCAnd they fixed it. and In "Seattle will hold on to her trade here," said 3Ir. Sayres. "and lucrea.se. They appreciate the patronage they receive from the Islands and want more. A new steamship line will be in operation between Seattle and Honolulu bv November 1st. Until then we will have to depend on sailing vessels, and wo can easily do that. There will be two sailing vessels on the line, the Iroquois and the John Currier. The Iroquois will 4w due here on her first trip from Seattle about October 15. The Currier will be in three weeks later. A bia Ice box has been placed in the Iroquois and she will bring down 15,000 gallons of draft beer and 2,500 barrels of bottled beer, thirty carloads of the meaty-and luscious nectar with which lusty Gambrinus toasts tho health of his disciples. "What steamers will be put on the line? The only one I am sure of is the Elihu Thompson. There will be two vessels a month and at least three good steamers will be put on. There will be plenty of steamers with the closing of the Alaskan season. J. M. Olssell will be the agent of the compan here. "The new line will not confine itself to beer traffic. It is anxious to enter the meat market here and her wholesalers believe that they can do so. Considering that meat Is selling here for 21 cents a pound, I should say that they could. One of the ships has a cold storage capacity of 237 tons. It Is proposed to fill this every month , with meats and beer. "The Centennial mills, the largest In the Northwest, will also Invade this field with their flour and It Is believed that the new line can also bring In grain, oats and feed generally. Heretofore Honolulu has received this class offrelght wholly from San Francisco, due to rate discrimination. Seattle Is now shipping here brick and lime, manufactured iron and Eastern freights coming over Northern railroads. "Then, too." continued Jlr. Sayroe, "the passenger business must not be underestimated. The Aorangl took on about thirty passengers on the last North-bound trip at Honolulu and on the first brought down 10, and all were amazingly well pleased with the service. "Seattle Is booming," said Mr. Sayres. "It has a population of 35,000, as against 40,000 for Tacoma, and Is distancing everything In the Northwest. Large quantities of gold aro daily unloaded there. As we came away the Roanoke brought 11,500.000 from Alaska. But it caused no stir. They are used to It. In one day while we were there the local efflee of the . partment of mint3 assayed 12.500,000 uZ gold. The town is growing and growing on new money. It Isn't money gathered in another place and carried to Seattle and dumped there, to the enrichment of that community and v the Impoverishment of another. It Is dug right out of the ground up in Alaska and dumped there. Result, nes3 is booming. The weekly clearings run from $3,000,000 to 54,000,000. "Colonel McCarthy made most satisfactory arrangements and had an enjoyable time. He was royally treated; nothing was too good for him. He was assured that neither he nor the brewery would be frozen out by the coastwise rules. "It may interest business men and others of Hawaii to know that Jas. J. Hill of the Great Northern and North-era- Pacific is coming Into this field really eomlng. While we were In Seattle the published the statement that Mr. Hill had ordered the building of isro 14.000-ton steamers for. tho. Inland trade, on which work has actually begun. His Chinese ships are of 22,000 tons burthen. The Seattle newspapers had quite a glorification over the Beginning of work on the heats for tho Hawaiian trade." 1 4 j? fS -( "ni.o !.." - - 41 .. 4- i - - v: .
