A Mayor's Mayor Schmitzof Sun Francisco lias return
Predicament, ed to the city and received the welcome of liis
clique and indictments of the gfand jury.
In times past a man of his position could hardly he indicted and
never convicted for the reason that there were always enough
hangers on to swear to any thing in order to clear the one who
couli and did protect them.
The people of San Francisco seem to be especially fortunate in
having an able and fearless County attorney in lleeney who prom
ptly has each perjurer indicted when the tactics of the past are
resorted to and as a man here who is under indictment for perjury
must either put up $5000.00 bail or go to jail until his case is tried
there is far less desire to be a witness for the grafters than there.
The people all over the United States are alive to the necessity
of encouraging such fearless officers as Hughes, Folk, and as
Heeney seems to be regardless of politics and there is no surer
way to political preferment in the states than to secure the con
viction of political grafters who are tlie worst enemies that we
have to day.
It is almost certain that if Heeney secures the conviction of the
gang of crooks of San Francisco be will be rewarded in future by
the people of his state. It is proper that he should be.
A Pest Hole On last Friday our attention was called to the
In town. fact that very insanitary conditions exist near
Market Street. At the request of Mr. J. W. L. Marshall we went
to the lower part of town where a number of dwellings were built
closely together and practically surrounded a pig pen Where the
Chinese pork man of Market street keeps and slaughters his pigs.
The pens had concrete floors and drained into a cesspool some four
or five feet deep that was hidden from view by a trap door that
was partly afloat as the filth in the cesspool was full and overflowing
at the time of the visit. Into this cesspool was thrown the offal at
each killing of pigs where the same rotted together with the refuse
of the pens. '
As the ground was practically on a dead level and the dwelling
houses are but a few inches from the ground this vile smelling
and pestilence breeding filth overflowed and spreading out, ran
under the dwellings where many children are compelled to live or
die. This would seem to be enough to satisfy the filthiest China
man but what was our surprise to find that a large taro patch, the
edge of which wls within a few feet of the pig pens, had been
planted in tall bananas and Into this patch that was surrounded
by an embankment was thrown tons of taro pealings and che water
from the pig pens and from the overflow of the cesspool was turn
ed forming a slimy lake of decaying vegetable matter, and flesh as
vile as has ever been seen.
Mr. Marshall at once requested the Government Physician to
visit the place which he did and ordered the pigs removed, two
barrels of lime put into the cesspool, two barrels of lime spread
over the ground under and about the houses and the bananas cut
down but later allowed the Chinaman to leave some of the banana
When we learned that within a few feet of this pest hole there
were two cases of diptheria and that one of the children had died
we were not at all surprised. The wonder was that any of the
children in that locality were still alive.

Prisoner By Proxy.
A neat little conspiracy on the part
of a CUinese gambler, who was u'
for trial yesterday, was foiled by
Charley Chillingworth, his attorney,
getting next to his game anil turning
the tables on him by admitting 1 1 1 .-
gul.t of his euent. there were two
batches of gamblers before Judge
Whitney, one uirticular Chinaman
having been caught in eaeh of the
two raids. This gamoler left hat it
would go hard with him if he were
to come befot e. the judge twice on
the same day on similar charges. He
even realized that it was not quite
the thing for a gambler out on
bail to be caught right after his re
lease in another game, so he at rang
ed to appear in person in one batch
and by proxy in another.
The first batch of eight, in which
he appeared in propria persona,
pleaded guilty. They had been try
iug a few hands of poker and expect
ed to get off lightly for their adoption
of the great American game. The
second tatch, repiesented by Mr.
Chillingworth, entered a plea of not
guilty through their attorney and
then took their seats to await their
trial. After the plea was entered
Mr. Chil'ingworth was told that one
of the bath had answered to a false
name ; nd was not the man who had
This was not playing fair with the
attorney and would have placed him
in a false light if the deception was
shown in tha trial. Mr. Chillingworth
therefore asked leave to amend the
plea and enter one of gu!lty. This
was allowed and the gamblers fined
$4 each and costs.
The public court calender yester
day was a long one, fifty-six namrs
appearing on the roll. The majority
of these were held over. Six Chinese
perjury cases ware adjourned, five
of them until next month. That
against Chan Chau, the' police court
interpreter, will be tried on Monday
next. All these case arise out of the
testimony given In a recent assault
trial involving the rival Bow Wong
and Merchant tongs.
After a number of minor cases
were trie d.that against Leon Renaut,
vagrancy, was taken up. In this
case the prosecution wished to show
that the accused was the partner of
Jenny Clare, a notorious Iwilei char
acter. Renaut managed to show,
however, that he is acting as an
?gent of a San Francisco liquor house
and as such was in possession of an
income and was not dependent for a
living upon the earnings of anyone.
He was found not guilty.
There is another case against Ren
aut as well as against four other of
his countrymen, alleged to be inter
ested as agents for the Iwilei dives.
One of the accused, Victor Cavois,
announced his inteutbn of leaving the
Territory for Tonopah on the 11th,
provided his trial did not prevent
him. As the prosecuting attorney
pointed out that it would be a great
gain to the Territory to get rid of
him, he was given his $100 bail money
and cordially invited to get out. If
he is in Honolulu after the lltli he
will be further attended to. Advertiser.
