Confessing iis guilt as a bigamist
and throwing himself on the mercy of
the court, Jesse C. Steele this morning
was sentenced by U. S. District Judge
demons to a servitude of six months
ln Jail and to pay a fine of ?500.
Among many who heard of the affair
this morning surprise was expressed
that the sentence was so light.
The hearing of Steele's case had
been set "for 2 o'clock this afternoon,
but his early decision to withdraw his
original plea of not guilty made the
calling of the jury unnecessary. He
was taken immediately into court and
In the' presence of the district attor
ney, his own counsel and a few specta
tors, announced his desire to alter the
plea and submit to the court's decree.
The evidence prepared against him
appeared sufficient to convict Mrs.
Steele of San Francisco, and her sis
ter. Miss Sciaroni, whom the govern
ment brought down from the coast,
both positively identified him as Mrs.
Steele's husband and produced? affi
davits to show the legality of the mar
riage. He bad never entered any de
nial of his marriage to the Portuguese
girl in Honolulu last fall.
In the formal charge his name is
written ."Jesse C. Steele, otherwise
known as James CL Sleele, otherwise
known as Jesse W. Clark."

"Waiving any rights of anjfc nature
whatsoever which stockholders may

carry, out our obligations to the pub
lic by; permitting yodr Harbor to In

of a master cr of a mate, resulting in
damage to person or property, is in
law attributable to the company.
The same negligence, resulting in
poor "public service, is by the public
attributable to the company. For in
jury, either to a particular individual
or to the public generally, tne com
pany, and the company alone, is held
responsible. It must follow that when
the company waives It3 right to select
the agents by whom alorfe Its duty to
both Individuals and the public can
be carried out, the public would have
righteous cause for complaint.
"Feeling thus, we cannot yield to

In some instances ' there, are' a few
good men obtained, but one trip is
usually sufficient to cause desertion
before the next trip, for the reason
that a few able bodied men are
obliged to do the greater part of the

crew, was placed in Jeopardy and
barely escaped disaster of a serious

"When the method of employing
seamen is considered, it can be fully
realized by any man of common
Judgment that competency is totally
disregarded. The duty of employing
men as seamen for the Inter-Island
Steam Navigation Company is com

man himself, is unable to perform his
trust with that dieerimtaating judg

"In this connection, we call the at-

examination as to his fitness to per

" white slavery" traffic, as it is car

it is thought,' entered the station, wait

another part of the building, and then
got access to the women's dormitory.
Those who have been investigating
are now declared to have unearthed
enough to cause them to suspect the
operation of a nasty plot against the
federal immigration service. The case
has come right on the heels of the ac
tive move by the federal officials in
arresting eleven Japanese as alleged
"white slavers." The man who enter

is suspected, did so in order to ac
