Frm Far and Near Men of Blue and Brass Appear Territorial Official Who Has Lost Faith in the Efficacy of Being Accommodating. Unrestrained Jollification Found. A trolley ride, a police whistle and a lusty pair of lunge were the combination which resulted in a Territorial official becoming: the recipient of considerable good natured Joshing yesterday The trolley ride was given by Mr. and Mm. Christian Conrad on Friday nmht at which time the lines of the Honolulu Rapid Transit Company ere traversed lJy a merry party. That jh was a success was happily attested In a score or more of Honolulu's best nuos people. Included In the happy throng was High Sheriff A. M. Brown. Now, Mr. Brown is nothing If not obliging, and it was to this desirable trait alone that the High Sheriff attributed some of the discomfiture to which he was xubjectad while touring the electric J i nes by moonlight Brown Loans His Whistle. Mr. Brown is the possessor of a police whistle. His duties require that the alarm be constantly carried. While this might not have been generally known, one fair member of the trolley party was not !ow to connect wltn the important fact, and lost no time in importuning he accommodating official for the brlrf loss of the whistle.

While ethers had provided thomsolvos with paraphernalia of boisterous and order, this particular oung lady had overlooked these essentials and while the din was at its she vwas compelled to look on in wistful and silent contemplation. His Pained Expression. On securing the talisman, which in times past had drawn to it all police- dom trudging beats within sound of Its shlrll tones, the young women sounded a loud and prolonged note of warning just as the trsile was speeding uiong tht busiest portion of Hotel street The cJTect was electrical. A saddened and pained expression passed over the otherwise genial features of Hawaii's High Sheriff He grasped the situation at a glance and realised that the mischief was done. PottcemeR?

Chief Has to Explain. The omeers surveyed the scene In mute surprise. Expecting trouble, the policemen found instead unrestrained jollification. The men saw their chief, and satisfactory explanations followed. The innocent little whistle was taken from the hand of the wondering and thoroughly frightened young woman, while the tried and trust' minions of the law who had Journeyed from far and near at the call of the omclal denser signal, silently took) their departure in the gloaming, from ' whenc they came, and the car again proceeded oa its course. j It is safe to say that the led services of a poiico wnieue were not further employed in adding to the general fun and celebration attending an excursion partv aboard a Honolulu j trolley.

It Is rumored that a combination of Pacific Coast lumber manufacturers is to be formed, which will control the entire output of the Coast. ' It is said the Pacific Coast 'Lumber Man- nfsirtumrR ASRivfnttnn silt rnntrol the combination.

Yesterday the package boy was subjected to a close cross questioning by High Sheriff Brown. The lad, who was placed In charge of the mall on the night of the robbery, was asked to explain several matters connected with the disappearance of the mail sack.

HIS HA Rigid Figure Stands With Hand on the Switch Suddenness of Horror Dazes flamy Witnesses no Store WJhiere Hie Was EoiployedDoctors C. P. Cooper and A. N. Sinclair Quickly In Attendance. Charles Ahfai was electrocuted in Mclnorny's' clothing store yesterday afternoon. He went to the electric switch to turn on the lights and received a shock which meant death within a few brief moments. Several persons in the store at the time saw him stricken. The suddenness of the horror fairly dazed them. Charles Ahfai. a Hawaiian Chinese about twenty-three years of age, employed as an assistant, in Mclnerny's clothing store on the corner of Merchant and Fort streets, was engaged in sweeping out the place about 5 o'clock yesterday afternoon. E. A. Mclnerny, the proprietor of the establishment, was about to show some hats to a customer. It was beginning to get dark in the back of the store. Mr. Mclnerny called to G- Stevens, one of the employes, to turn on tho electric lights. Charles Ahfai heard the order and called: "Never mind Mr. Stevens! I wilH turn it on." These were the last words he uttered. ' Killed by Electricity. As he told Mr. Stevens not to bother about the light, Charles quickly to where the electric switch was situated behind the door opening to Fort street The switch was behind the right-hand door. The door was open and there was a case of umbrellas against it There were two ways of turning on, thej switch. One was by removing the umbrella stand and partly closing the door. The other way was by reaching between the door and the door-frame. Tho latter way -was the easier and the one generally In use by the managers and employes of the store. Cnarles Ahfai, standing with one foot on the door step and the other on the floor of the store, put his right hand between the door and the doorframe and felt for the switch, at the same time, it Is said, placing his left hand on the iron pillar outside. The next moment the current was in his body and he was all but dead. Held Fast to the Switch. Those in the store, within a few feet of the victim, saw his body suddenly drawn tight against the doorframe. At first they did not understand what was tho matter. The unfortunate man had not emitted a sound. Whn he had placed his hand on the switch the lights in the store had come partly on. They remained partly on as his body was strained rigidlv againbt the dcor. The victim's hand was held fast to the switch. In a second the terrible unnatural-ness of the attitude of the young man struck one of the employes standing at a counter not far away. "Mr. Mclnernv'" he almost shouted. "Come quick! Ahfal's killed!" The startled cry brought all in the WOMAN KNEELS IN .PRAYER FOR HOURS i. A lonelv and detracted Portuguese woman sought the Catholic Cathedral yesterday evening and knelt therein to pray. As the minutes passed into hours she still remained within the church, praying. Nor would she leave when, at 9 o'clock, a gentle priest reminded ' her that while "prayer was good for the souL too long prayers were likely to interfere with earthly duties to her folks at home and that she had better seek her place of refuge and come again some other time to pray. M But the poor woman refused to be led from the sanctuary. She clung to the oencnes of the sacred edifice and begged plteously to be permitted to remain within sight of the altar. "But, why not go home; it is late and the doors cf the church must be locked for the night. said the priest endeavoring to comfort her and observing the strange look in the woman's eyes. "I have no home," wailed the 'woman, "the church is my only refuge. Good Father, please let me stay where I am!" And having not th? heart to disturb her. so wretched did she appear, the good priest left her, though he stood RLES AHFAI DEATH BY ELECTROCUTION establishment at the time to the side of the rigid figure at the threshold. Released from the Switch. It was the first Instinct of the salesmen and other employes in the store to grasp Ahfai by the shoulders and tear him away from the hold of the unseen power and deadly force. "Don't touch him!" commanded Mr. Mclnerny, "You will be killed!" Mr. Mclnerny then Instructed Mr. Stevens to get something in the way of a stick to push back the switch and turn off the current. Mr. Stevens seized an umbrella from the rack against the door and, reaching over Ahfal's head, poked it between the door and the door-frame and turned the switch. Immediately, released from the power, the almost lifeless body fell heavily to the floor and the lights, which had been partly on, went out. Before Ahfal's head struck the floor, however, Mr. Mclnerny caught it and, supporting it on his knee, called for scmeone to bring water. Ahfai was evidently conscious at the time. His eyes were open and he was looking at Mr. Mclnerny. His body was limp now. Before, as he was strained against the door. It had been, rigid. The water was not long in coming. "Close your eyes!" said Mr. "so the water will not run in them." Ahfai evidently understood for he slowly closed his eyes. He never opened them again. Attempts at Reviving. Mr. Mclnerny poured the cool water over Ahfal's forehead. He was a little nervous and some of the water got into Ahfai's eyes. Ah&i blinked his eyes but did not 6pecthem. While using the water, Mclnerny sent someone out for whiskey, which was speedily brought A few drops of the fluid were applied to Ahfai's lips. Very little passed into his mouth, and the next moment the unfortunate fellow was foaming at the mouth. Dr. C. B. Cooper had been telephoned for and arrived on the scene as quickly as possible. Taking eff his coat and bending down over the now prostrate form, the doctor listened for any beating of the heart. For a full minute he listened, during which the friends of the stricken young man were malting anxious-U- for a word from him. "I believe his heart Is still beating a little," said the doctor. Immediate! v the doctor set about i working the victim's arms out straight over his head and back again close against the ribs. For fully I twenty minutes this artificial respiration was kept up, the doctor attempt Ing to bring back the fleeting life Everj" now and then he would bend to listen for any action of the heart He thought he heard it beating, but he was not sure. If it was beating, it was very, faint "I'm afraid he's gone," said the doctor after another ten jninutes work. Still he continued working 'the arms, however, and doing everything not far off and watched patiently until prayer seemed to have calmed her soul and she went away. mat i PAPAALOA WANTS A RECORD. Claims Forty Inches of Rain in Hours. The recent rainfalls in Hawaii have been of a most abundant nature. It is reported to Superintendent of Public Works E M. Boyd that 40 inches of rain fell in Papaaloa in 24 hours. This, if the report be true, beats the wnrlris rrjlnfnll Professor Lyons, however, doubts the correctness of the report as there is no government weather station at Papaaloa. At Ookala, which is two miles from Papaaloa. there Is a government station, the report of which, 20" inches in 24 hours. Is credited by Professor Lyons. The heavy rains have been general all over the Hilo district, traffic having been Interrupted at places on account of washouts. Hilo had a Very heavy ranfall and in Laupahoehoe there fell 10 Inches of rain In five hours. Ar Hana. on ManL 21 Inches of rain fell In 24 hours, of which 14' inches-fell inside of three hours. This, in itself, is a record hardly beaten anywhere. Catholic Mission Band. There will be a rehearsal of the Catholic Mission band at the club rooms tomorrow evening. MEETS in his power to bring back the speeding life. Two Doctors at Work. Dr. A. N. Sinclair, hearing of the accident, came Into the store about that time and rendered all the assistance he could. Dr. Cooper had arisen from his kneeling posture to prepare an injection of strychnine. "It may do some good." he said. Meanwhile Dr. Sinclair bent over the victim and listened for heartbeats. He was of the opinion that there was a still a faint fluttering. Further work, however, proved of no use. About 6 o'clock Charles Ahfai was pronounced dead. Taken to the Morgue. The police patrol wagon was summoned immediately after the accident and waited while the doctors busied themselves with the victim. When life was pronounced extinct, the body was removed to the morgue in the patrol. A curious but sympathetic crowd surrounded the store while the doctors were working to preserve life. Several times it was necessary for Dr. Cooper to ask that the door-ways be cleared. Finally the door at which young Ahfai met his fate was closed and the shades, were drawn down. Electricianr Are Notified. Manager Gartley. of the Hawaiian Electric Company, was notified of the accident and went to Mclnerny's store, together with the superintendent of the works to inspect the switch. As darkness came on Mr. Mclnerny refused to allow anyone to turn on the light except an electrician from the power house. Mr. Gartley and his men inspected the switch, turned it on and off and pronounced it all right They 'deeply regretted the accident, but saw noth ing wrong with the switch. Mr. Mclnerny says that a wire burned out on the pole at the corner Of Merchant and Fort streets on Tuesday last and that there was considerable spluttering and noise for a while. The Electric Company was notified and a new transformer was put in. When there was trouble with the wire the lights in the store had gone out Everything seemed to be all right after that It is generally supposed that something must have been wrong in the wires, however, for the voltage obtainable at the switch was in itself too low to kill a man, unless, perhaps, the victim was suffering from heart disease. Charles Ahfai had been in the employ of Mr. Mclnerny for the last year and a half. Previous to that he was soda water clerk at Benson & Smith's store. His parents are not living. Mr. Mclnerny is making inquiries as to the whereabouts of his friends or relatives, if there are any In these Islands. The young man was most popular with his associates, and was much thought of by his employers. Arrangements for the funeral have not yet been made. FRANK MELLO GETS PECULIAR COFFEE Night Operator Frank Mello, of the telephone exchange, believes that an attempt has been made to poison him. About 11 o'clock on Friday night while he was on duty and while his wife, who is also connected with the exchange, was on duty with her husband, a knock sounded on the door and a Chinees hackman handed Mr. Mello a bottle of coffee and some bread and butter, saying that a man told him to take the food and drink to the telephone exchange and give them to the night operator. Mr. Mello thought it as a little odd that the food should come by a hackman. although other operators had sons times gone out to get him something to eat while he was busy at the board. His suspicions were not great, however, and. being hungry, he proceeded to eat of the bread and partake of the coffee. Hardly had he taken a mouthful of the coffee, however, than he sph. it out again, remarking that it had a very peculiar taste. Mrs. Mello was thereupon curious to Investigate and took a mouthful of coffee from the bottle. Scarcely had she taken it iato her mouth than she became III and for- innately did cot swallow a drop of the liquid. Mr. and Mrs. Mello arrived at the conclusion thtt someone was trying to poison them. Yesterday Mr. Mello placed the matter in Deputy Sheriff Chilling- worth's hands and Mr. ChllllngworthJ turned the coffee over to Food Inspector Shorey for analysis. Mr. Mello gave the names of certain persons to Mr. Chtlllngworth. These persons he suspects of poisoning the coffee. If indeed it was poisoned. Mr. Mello has never given cause for hatred and his many friends are curious to know what motive could have prompted the poisoning idea. Food Inspector Shorey has not yet reported the result of his analysis. Night Operator MIlo has quite an extensive acquaintance all over town on the wire and everyone who has had any dealings with him would deeply regret his being the victim of any such criminal work. Some of Frank Mello's friends are inclined to think the whole affair is a joke and that there was nothing more than kerosene or machine oil or some other nastv tasting stuff in the coffee This, however, is not Mr. Mello's opinion.

ATHLETES MOCK OUT BUSINESS Maile Ilimas Too Mach For Hackfeld Dayies at Football. FEW PEOPLE WITliESS THE GiME'' THE MERCHANTS' COMBINATION SCORES A GOAL THOUGH OUT OF PRACTICE. Game Was a Slow One Throughout, and Only a Few Brilliant Plays Made The Thereatening Weather Keeps Away Lovers of Sport. Kicking Out of Bounds. The and the Mate Illma teams played a game of Association football on the Maklkl groaads yesterday afternoon. The gome was scheduled to start at 4:30. but did net begin until 4:45 p. m. The team won the toss-up and chose to defend the maukn goal. During the beginning of the first half the ball was kept on territory almost all tho time. The Hackfelds twice managed to work the ball very close to th Maile Illma goal, but the- ball was kicked over the bar both times. Th Maile Ilimas made two goals during the first half, one of them being made by Munro and the other by G. Anderson. The Hackfeld-Davies team failed to score during this half. Maile Again Secure Ball. In the beginning of the second half the Malles again got the ball down close to the Hackfeld goal but the ball was kicked over the bar. The ball after this kept vacillating between the two goals. Towards the end of th half there were some lively scrimmages near the Hackfeld goal, but no score was made. Right before th closing of the half the Hackfelds sud denly pulled themsolvos together and carried the ball down toward the Illma goal, where Bergor managed to kick- a goal. The Maile Ilimas failed to score in this half. The final score was: Mali Ilimas 2 and Hackfeld-Davies 1 goal. Playing Rather Slow. The playing throughout the game was rather slow and very few brilliant plays were made. The game was also much delayed by the ball continually being kicked out of bounds. The Maile Ilimas were decidedly the better team, the Hackfeld-Davies team being out of practice as they had only once during the last two weeks Nevertheless, there did not seem to b much in the playing of tho two teams as the score was slow. Notwithstanding the heavy rains of the last week tho turf was very good, and no inconvenience was ex perlenced by the players on that ac count There was only a small crowd of faithfuls present to watch the game but it is probable that the threatening clouds kept away a large number The The lineup was as follows: Hackfeld-Davies Goal. Dueenberg backs, Ross and Beardmore; half backs. Churton. Sinclair and Catter-all; forwards. Irwine. Guild, Moss Borger and Brett Maile Ilimas Goal, Tenneek, backs R. Anderson and McGlli; half barks G. Anderson. Cralk and Brown: for wards. Munro, Cummin?. Berv-Chamberlain and W.Wright Reflwe. Ctii.die. MAILE ILIMA MEETING.
