Iu the case, of distribution of the IJstate
of Loke Papu, appeal from Judge Circuit
Court, to a jury, Judgej Kepoikai being
disqualified, Judge C. 1?. Parsons, Circuit
Judge at Hilo heard the case.
Some little amusement was created
when Judge Kalua, who had been retain
ed by the appellants, gave notice of his
withdrawal. A Mr. J. Fernandez, who
had at one time been employed by the
law firm of (A. P.) Peterson & Creighton
(Chas.), appeared as attorney, but his
license was somewhat antiquated and he
had not passed an examination before a
Circuit Court. Judge Parsons refused to
recognize him as the appellants' attorney.
Col. John Richardson was finally re
tained and on argument as to whether
an appeal had been perfected, Judge
Parsons dismissed the appeal.

The County Act, as drafted by the
County Act Commission and slightly

being the principal amendment, today
passed third and final reading in the
House of Representatives, all present
twenty-nine members,- recording afiima
Shortly ufter 10.30 o'clock, Rep. Co
elho moved that the House take up the
third reading of the County Bill, House
Bill No. 1, so that the bill might be sent
at once to the Senate. This motion
carried unanimously and Clerk Kalauo-
kalaui at once commenced the reading of
the bill, finishing about 11:50 o'clock,
when the vptes of those present were
taken with the result above noted.
Recess was taken immediately follow
ing the passage of the bill and, when the
House rose, several of "the Representa
tives were cheering in honor of the pas
sage of the measure.
A message was received in the House
this morning from the Governor, veto
ing "An Act relating to annulment,
divorce and separation." Said themes
sage: The necessity for making laws that
are clearin expression and concise in
language is one to which I have already
called your attention. This bill makes
the proof that a person has been segre
gated as a leper prima faci evidence that
such person has contracted the disease of
leprosy. It is open for question whether
segregation as a leper has not taken
place when a person is confined as a sus
pect, and it would be unfortunate to
have on our statutes n law which made
such temporary segregation sufficient
grounds for divorce. The evident intent
of the bill is to providevtaat when either
party has been declared by law to be a
leper, proof of such declaration may be
taken as prima facie evidence that the
person has contracted the disease known
as Chinese leprosy, and is incapable of
"My objection is not made to the in
tent of the bill, but rather to its form,
and I have less hesitation ii returning it
from the fact that there is ample .time
within the session for the passage of a
similar Act, as to the meaning of which
there can be no possible question."
Action on the veto was deferred until
tomorrow, the sentiment of the House
apparently being for adopting' the spirit
of the message.
