SUPREME COURT MAY DECLINE
HONOLULU MAY 16, -"I can
not tell what progress has been
made in the County Act test case,"
said Attorney General Andrews to
day. "So far the whole thing rests
with the prosecution, which has
agreed to submit a statement of
facts to us of the defense. This
statement must be very fair and
exhaustive if the Supremo Court is
to take c&gnizanco of it, and even
then it is a question whether that
court will take jurisdiction in the
matter before the election has been
held and County government is a
fact. Furthermore the statement
of facts must be submitted to us for
Regarding the proceeding which
it has been talked about to take
against the act appropriating
money to defray the election ex
penses, such are quite feasible, for
instance by an injunction against
the Secretary of the Territory,
which could be taken from the Cir
cuit Court, but I think that this
has still less chance of being suc
cessful than the actual County Act
According to one side of the dis
cussion, the Governor is now direct
ing the litigation in connection
with the County law, both endB
and the middle.
As one man put this morning,
''If a lawyer were doing what the
Governor is now doing, directing
both sides of the case, ho would be
On the other hand there are some
who claim that ari effort has been
made to delay a legal determina
tion of the County . law. This
charge is strenuously denied by all
except Stewart who has withdrawn
from the case practically because
he would not allow a case for which
he was called upon to fight to be
directed by the other side. Cooper
has remained in, but there is a
sentiment prevailing that the caso
will be intentionally made up in a
manner so at variance with his
ideas that he will be forced to withdraw.
ELECTION LAW DEFECTIVE.
HONOLULU, May, 16-Apropos
of his appointment of election
inspectors, the list of which must
have got lost somewhere in the
Senate, because no action has been
taken upon it, Governor Carter
has written a private letter to a
gentleman who has taken some
interest in affairs political in times
past, the letter showing conclusive
ly that the Governor feels the pres
sing need for an intelligent revi
sion of the election laws.
"The list of inspectors printed in
the Advertiser," says the Governor
in his letter, "is correct. Previously,
in handling this question, we have
ignored the law, on the ground
that it was old and out of date
and evidently drafted for indivi
dual contests, without any con
templation of organized parties
It is so faulty that wo simply did
the best wo could. You know the
result; the attack upon the election
by the Democrats, evidence of
which has been collected and
which clearly shows tho truth
that tho Administration did not
follow the law.
"Now, tho solution in this case,
as in many others, is to rovorse
this policy and simply carry out
tho law, and thus impress tho
necessity for a change.
' The law requires ' the election
inspectors to represent, as far as
possible, the different contestants.
There aro three political parties in
tho field, and in order to be fore
handed, ihiB office some time ago
wrote to the central office of each
organization a letter, asking them
to furnish one name of an election
inspector in each precinct.
This was done by both the Home
Rulers and the Democrats, but the
Republicans followed the old course
and sent in three names that they
thought ought to bo appointed,
probably intending to make the
selection for the other two parties,
stating that if one name only was
to be considered, preference was to
be given to the first name."
The Governor then revives the
condition in tho precinct where
dwells the gentleman to whom the
letter is written, and concludes:
" "In view of the foregoing, you
might havo your organization
introduce a resolution asking for
a revision of tho election laws, an 1
requesting Kuhio to secure a
change in the Organic Act, abolish
ing the appointment of inspectors
of election for four years, but pro
viding that thero shall bo three
inspectors appointed for each
precinct, representing the various
political, parties, proportioned a
mong the contesting parties as far
as possible in conformity with
the votes cast at tho previous elec
tion. This is only a hasty suggestion"
BOARD MAY SUE TERRITORY.
HONOLULU, May 15. The
question of religious teaching at
Lahainaluna was taken up on
Saturday by Governor Carter, in
a conference with W. O. Smith,
W. R. Castle, G. P. Castle, F., J.
Lowrey and Deputy Attorney
General Prosser. Tho visitors were
present as representatives of the
American Board of Hawaiian
Board of Missions, which will prob
ably have a claim of $15,000 a
gainst the territory. The site of
Lahainaluna was turned over to
tho Kingdom of Hawaii many
years ago, on an agreement that if
it should ever be used for the
teaching of any religion except
that of the missionary fathers the
property should revert to the board,
or a penalty of f 15,000 should be
paid. It was claimed that the
conditions had been violated. Pros
ser did not agree with view. The
board was invited to bring a suit
against the Territory for the a
mount, and this course may bo

Wailuku Camp and tho mill hands
of tho Wailuku Sugar Co. struck
last Monday forenoon.
Tho troublo came about over

It appears that tho main instiga
tors of tho present strike who are
truck and mill men, were given
a raise prior to tho general raise,
and when tho two dollars per
month additional was given, these
few men, less than ten, wore not in

CHICAGO, May 15. Jessie Bartlett Davis is dead from nephritis.
Jessie Bartlett was born on a farm near Morris, 111. Her musical
education was under Frederick Root, Chicago. She was contralto in
the Church of tho Messiah in Chicago, and in July, 1879, joined tho
Chicago Church Choir Pinafore Co., in which she gained a reputation as
Buttercup. Mme. Bartlett made her Italian debut as Siebel to Mme,
Patti's Marguerite in Faust in New York, joined tho Carleton Opera Co..
and later American Opera Co., touring America in both. She studied
one season in Paris and then became prima dona contralto with Tho
Bostonians. In 1880 she married Will J. Davis, theatrical manager,
them through an interpreter that
these truck and mill men had been
given the additional stipend prior
to the general advance and as a
consequence did not recognize their
present demand. He gave them
until the following morning to de
cide on whether they proposed to
go back to work or get their pay
and vacate. They decided upon tho
latter course. Meetings were held
daily at tho church.
Wednesday morning, T. Mori
secretary to Consul Saito, came
over at the request of C. Brewer &
Company to learn the exact con
tention of tho men.
In speaking of the matter, Thurs
day morning Mr. Mori said: I
came over here at the request of
Manager Wells and the agents C.
Brewor and Co. andafter listening
to tho complaints of the men and
their six demands, I explained to
Manager Wolls what these claims
"Mr. Wells positively refused to
listen to their demands which are
unreasonable, but said that if the
men wished to go back to work he
would havo them. I explained to
the men that their going out c n a
strike was unwarranted and their
demands unjust, and that they had
better return to their labors."
"The strike was unwarranted
and the majority are anxious to go
back to woik but aro only waiting
for a concession to one of their de
mands as an excuse to return.
All of tho demands of the strik
ers with the exception of those of
Hospital, time system and firewood
have been withdrawn and it is be
lieved that one or more of these
demands can be adjusted so that
tho strikers will havo their con
science eased sufficiently to permit
their returning to work.

noon between secretary Mori and
tho strikers threats were made
against the secretary' but tho in
tervention of some of tho coolor
heads prevonted bodily injury.
