CONTRACT IS AWAllDIiD.
The contract has been lot for the
erection of tho Courthouse in Wai
luku to A. J. McDonald for 23,
312.50. There was but one other
bid for the construction of the
building which was by the Ha
waiian Concrete Construction Com
pany of Honolulu who bid $31,
000 or .fu.000 about the appiopria
tion. The building will occupy the
lots formerly used for school and
court purposes and -can be made
one of the attractions of the town.
Judge A. N. Kepoikai has sug
gested that tho old building be
moved across the street and be
used as a public hall. No better
purpose could bo suggested than
this and all hope that his sugges
tion may bo become a reality.
UNDEH UONDS TO KEI3I THE
On the complaint of Maria Lo a
former resident. of llilo and Hono
lulu H. C. Mosman was arrested
on a charge that ho threatened to
take tho life of the afiiant and
did otherwise threaten to do vio
lence to her person.
The case was heard before Dis
trict magistrate McKay on Thurs
day. Maria K. Lo and Kawai Kawelo
testified to tho threats made by
Mossman. From tho testimony of
Maria it appeared that a door had
been broken down by Mossman to
the house in which they all lived
and a small family row resulted.
The following day they wero noti
fied by their landlord to move out.
She said Mossman came home
and in her hearing he spoke of her
as a nigger and said ho would kill
her. She wont out and got three
men to protect her.
Tho testimony of Kawai was much
the same as that of Maria.
The testimony of both Mossman
and his wife who was formerly
Nellie Biich wa? quite different to

that of the former witnesses but
admitted that serious trouble be
tween' them had taken place.
Parties about- town state that
much friction has existed between
them for some time and that it was
through Maria's advice that they
were arrested some time ago and
forced to Marry or answer to. a
criminal charge. Since then they
seem to have made up but only to
have more serious trouble.
The court found 9Ufiieiont ground
to require Mossman to give a bond

sand dollars. . s
