A BULLOUD 50c, iir.d 81 bottles for sale by all dealers BENSON, SMITH Co. Ageatu for H. I Shortly after the ADVERTISER went to press on Monday morning a mys- terious explosion startled those who were about at that early boar. Inves- tigation showed that it occurred at a house owned by a native named Ka- halewai at Kamoiliili. Police Cap- tain Scott found an old native named Papa, who lived in the bouse, but who bad been awakened the evening before by his blankets taking fire fftnauoll stove. The old man was scared at the occurreuce and after put- ting out the fire aud throwing tbe oil atove out of doors, went to the house of a neighbor, some 200 yards distant, where he spent the night until awaK- ened by tbe noise of the explosion. To this actlpn oil his part be probably owes bis present existence. The bouse is an ordinary two-roomed cottage with lean-to In the rear. The explosion took place either in or under tbe lean to, part of wblcb was used by tbe old man as a sleeping place and the rest as a kitchen. Tbe force of tbe explosion knocked tbe rear portion of tbe house into kindling wood, pieces of tbe wreck being picked up yards away. Ev- ery window in tbe bouse was shat- tered, tbe rear door leading to tbe kitchen blown off its binges, and even tbe panels of the front door blown out. In spite, of the most rigid inves- tigation, no cause can be assigned for tbe explosion. No one who lived on or about tbe premises had any idea of any powder being there, Although considerable blasting was done in the vicinity some time ago. Tbe police have advanced the theory that the explosion came from one of tbe bombs dropped by Nowlein and his party, who were arrested close to the pre- mises. Even if it were eo, tbe mys- tery of bow it became ignited is still unsolved. VOLCANO PICTURE SOLD. Mr. Hitchcock's Painting Will Go to England. Howard Hitchcock's celebrated picture representing the blow-hole at the Volcano has been sold by Mr. C. D. Chase to the Hon. James B. M. Lingard Monk of the Con- servative Club, London. This painting, one of Mr. Hitch- cock's best, represents the active blow-hole that opened on the rising sides of Halemaumau in April, 1894. It presaged another "Little Beg- a marked feature of Kilauea as late as 1887. The action of this new opening was, however, short lived and last- ed barely two weeks. Fortunately tbe artist visited the Volcano during its activity and from sketches and studies then made painted this picture which, as a realistic representation of furi- ous activity and suppressed vol- canic force has not been surpassed in his own work, nor even by that of the late Tavernier. Standing as near the fire-vent as is safe, with the internal glow lighting its rag- ged edges, supplemented by the indications of fire already showing over the edges of the main fire- lake above in tbe gathering dusk, one feels transported to the scene itself, almost conscious of the rum- blings and vibrations of the hidden forces beneath the broken surface of the darker lavas. In the dis- tance, just showing, is a portion of the surrounding crater walls, while the sky shows murky and discol- ored through the rising vapors and sulphurous gases. This picture, is a faithful repre- sentation of one of nature's sub- lime forces and may well be class- ed as one of the artist's best ef- forts Arrested on Suspicion. Four police officers visited the Mail wharf yesterday afternoon at 4 o'clock and walking up to tbe place where the sailors of the Gay Head were at work on the casks of provisions, arrested three men on suapicion of having started the fire which almost destroyed the vessel The men seemed to take things very quietly and went to the police btation without any trouble. A special officer hau been at work on tbe case since the fire and has been instrumental iu assisting the captain to ferret out the supposed- perpetrators. The names of the men are Wm. Bresley, Eiker Ewkowter and Wm. Gehmann. STILL MISSING. The Abducted Chinese Girl Cannot Be Located. Several members of tbe police force and a number of the friends of Ah Chew are busily engaged in looking for Quai Mney, the thirteen- year-old Chinese girl, who has been missing from her home on Nuuanu street since early on Saturday morning. Ah Chew has stationed men at different outlets from the city at bis own expense to guard against the girl being taken to the other eide of tbe island, and says he will spare no expense to find her and bring her abductors to justice. It is Much Affected by the Boat Boys. OfHcer Patterson on the Dif- ficulty of Making Arrests for Gambling Oflenaea. "See those fellows over there io that boat on the Kinan's said Harbor Policeman Patterson yesterday afternoon. "They are bending over now and have their eyes directed on a spot near the center of the circle which they form. Now you see them sit np. Some are disappointed and there id one who seems to be in good spirits. They ara playing at a game of chance called 'Russian War.'" "A small piece of canvas with six figures in aa many squares is spread oat before a lot of gamblers. A player pats his money down on a certain one of the figures. A box containing three dice each, marked with the same figure repre- sented on the canvas, is shaken. Should a figure on one dice corre- spond to the one on which the 'player' has placed his stake, then the banker is forced to give him the amount called for. Should two dice turn up with the same figure the player gets twice the amount from the banker. In case of three, the amount is trebled." "I have been watching the pro- gress of this game for the past week. The crowd that you see yonder is made up entirely of na- tive boys whose-4ges do not exceed twenty years. They never seem to be doing any work, and yet are al- ways 'flush.' Where they get the money from is a mystery to me. I have sent persons around to watch the game and these have reported to me that the stakes run as high as a dollar. Of course the banker is the winner in the end, as usual. "The boat is a very convenient place for them, since they can hide the gambling apparatus whenever any police special approaches. Again, they have full survey of all the approaches. As soon as I get anywhere near the place those ras- cals at once get up on the gunwale of the boat and commence discus- sing the news of the day. "Nothing can be done unless they are 'nabbed' in the act of gambling, and that is not so easy as it looks on first sight. Yon can see them from a distance and you can hear them talking about gambling, but to catch them is an entirely different matter." About 5 o'clock yesterday, owing to information sent to the police station, a squad of mounted and unmounted police surrounded Wilder Co 's lumber yard and captured thirteen natives in the act of playing this game. They were escorted to the "police station be- tween two files of police, to the de- lectation and wonderment of paseers-liy. A story started ond gained credence that a mutiny had occurred on the whaler Gayhead and that the whole crew had been arrested, but it was not so. In conversation with one who knows, the AmFKTisER representative was informed that the term "Russian War" applied to this game is really a corruption of "Rouge et the game played at Monte Carlo, Hornhurg and ether fashionable gambling resorts. iWSPAPEM ;
