The only evidence on this parti
cular point wtis tho confession of
the defendant before- the coroners
jury which was admitted in evi
dence. In this confession the de
fendant stated that he alid the
child had "agreed to die together
and thnt'she was to pull the obi
and strangle him to death and
ho was to pull the obi n round her
As the defendant did not go on
the witness stand in his own de
fence and no oilier witnesses were
pioduced to sliovvnny other theory
as to tho death of the child that
was the only proof of tho exact
manner in which she camo to her
I'licio are many who do not
justify'tlic mans notion, especially
after considering tiie tender age of
the child whose lfe was taken nor
do the' believe the laV justifies the
request Tor mercy after a verdict of
manslaughter which tbey contend
carries with it a penalty, light
enough. When however the Court
imposed a fine orotic dollar with
out penal servitude and remitted
all costs which in this case ran up
into the hundreds there was tlx
greatest astonishment expressed.
Tho Evening Bulletin of Ilono
lulu of March !51 has under the
heading astonishing action by
Judge Kepoikai, Japanese Convict
ed of killing woman is lined one
dollar, the following article which
expresses about the same opinion
that is frequently expressed here.

liana murderer was fined $1. His
Japanese friends subscribed the
funds for Vivas, who conducted
his defense. v -
The above astonishing report
from Maui cannot bo explained by
any one in Honolulu who is con
versant with the circumstances of
the murder mentioned. Higate,
the man accused of the crime, is
alleged to have killed a Japanese
girl in a cane Held. Ho made the
statc.'iient that fo and tho girl
were in love 'with one another but
that her father would not let thorn
marry on account of her you'll.
According to his story, which was"
not believed by the Government
officials, she asked him to die with
her, and after demurring to some
extent, ho consented. They went
out into ti cane field, and she wrap
ped one end of her obi around her
neck and the other around the
man's. Each was to pull one end
and choke the other to death.
When found by the officers, the
girl was dead, but tho lr.anwas on
ly unconsciops, and was revived
later. He was indicted for the
murder of the girl. Judge Kepoi
kai discharged the prisoner after
quashing the indictment, on tho
ground that Deputy Attornoy
General Whitnoy was not commis
sioned to appear in his court not
withstanding the fact that WhiU
noy had appeared there before and
that hU commission allows him to
represent his department in any
Whit ney got special a commission
and secured a second indictment of
tho Japanese. It appears from tho
above wireless that tiio man was
tried for the crime and found guil
ty of . manslaughter, though in what
degree is not known here.
Judge Kepoikai's sentence is
utterly inexplicable to tho mem
bers of the Attorney General's de
partment, and there is a prospect
that trouble will grow out of it

Want Much Money ,for
Honolulu," March 31. Notwith
standing the fact that W. II. Hoogs
denies that lie is in any way con
nected with the proposal submitted
by. II. G. Mayer on the Hilo break
water other than as one of two
bondsmen, there is a general belief
on tho street that Mayer was act
ing for Hoogs aiid Belscr. When
asked what he had to say about the
matter, Mr. Hoogs said very em
phatically: "I have nothing to give out on
tho matter, for I have nothing to
do with it.'' hc said. "I am merely
a bondsman for Mayer; other than
that, I will have nothing to do
with the proposition."
When asked if he entertained
any thought of taking over the con
tract from Mayer, Mr. Hoogs said:
"No; I have absolutely nothing
to do with it save as one of the
bondsmen. I do not know if Mayer
is working for himself or for a cor
poration. At one time I thought I
would put in a bid but, a man
can change his mind, can't hc?"
It is stated that tho Hoogs and
Belser people found a quarry that
would make them entirely inde
pendent of the Hilo Hailway.
Whether this quarry figures in
Mayer's bid is not known. Cap
tain Otwell could not bo si-en this
afternoon. L. A. ThurstoiHs said
to.have called on him son;: after
the bids wens known.
It is possible all the bids may be
thrown out. being above the esti
mate. Bids for tho construction of tho
breakwater in Hilo were opened in
Captain Otwell's office today at
noon. . There were only four pro
posals submitted two from San
Francisco, one from Hilo, and tho
fourth, and lowest, from Honolulu.
G. H. -Mayer presented the lowest
proposal.. His price is-, as follows:
Stone in breakwater nor ton of 2000
pounds), $2.10; stone delivered on
workper ton, 91.S0. This was con
siderably lower than th"1 prices
submitted by the other contractors,
whose bids were as follows:
D. E. Motzgcr, Hilo Stono in
breakwater (ton). $2.-18 1-2; stone
delivered on work (ton), $1.89;
stone to bo obtained from Puna
R. A. Perry, San Francisco
Stone in breakwater (ton), $2.97;
stone delivered on work (ton) $2.53;
'stono to be obtained from Waiakca
San Francisco Bridge Co. Stone
in breakwater (ton), $2.88; stone
to be obair.ed from Puna quarry.
G. H. Mayer, Honolulu Stone
in breakwater (ton), 210; stono
delivered on work (ton), $1.80;
stone to bo obtained from land
hold L. A. Andrews, from Waiakea
There is considerable speculation
as to whether or not Mr. Mayer is
merely tho nojninal bidder, lie
is the Standard Oil agent hero. Ho
was represented at tho opening of
tho bids this morning by C, II.
Smith, an engineer who has done
work on tho Nuuanu dam and for
E. J. Lord. It was whispered this
morning that Mayer was a figure
head for a largo corportion. Smith
went over the work for Hoogs and
' Tho bids aro higher than I ex
pected," said Captain Otwell, head
of tho United States Engineer
Corps hero. ''Of course, I have
not had time as yet to think them
over and figure out exactly how
good or how bad thoy aie, but it
seems to mo that they are high. It
is a $100,00J job and there is a'
time limit of three years given the
contractor to finish tho construc
tion of tho breakwater. Tho bids
will be sent to Washington, and
theaward will bo tnado known in
about a month. It may take the
winning contractor tho full three
years to finish tho work, and then
again ho may be able to do it all i
in a year and a half.
The monthly meeting of the Wai
'ttku District Improvement Associa
tion held its monthly meeting in
(he court house Thursday evening
of this week.
In the absence of president Davis
J. N. K. Keola presided.'
The minutes were read and ap
proved. - II. M. Coke wa oafied upon to
make his report in ,re the side walk
on High street. He stated that he
had entered heartily into the plan
to do every thing in his power to
move the board to action and had
two articles put in the News as an
entering wedge and had planned to
follow this up with a personal ap
peal to the board and was prepared
to carry out this programme when
to his surprise the officials jsent a
number of men to remove tho old
side walk and had begun the desir
ed work before the ineeting of the
This was entirely satisfactory to
himself and his report was accepted
by the Association."
A communication was received
and read from James Bertram, pri
vate secretary to A nil row Carnegie,
who sent a form to be Tilled out for
the guidance of Mr. Carnegie" for
free library purposes. Thecommu
mention wys discussed and the
library committee was instructed as
to what the Assooiation desired to
be done in the premises.
The form will be filled out in ac-
ordabco with the inctructions of the
Association and forwarded ' to the
secretary of Mr. Carnegie.
The Secretary of the Association
was instructed to purchase postal
cards for the proper notification of
the members of meetings and order
ed to have the same printed.
The need of having a good hor.ce
trail up to tne tame lands was
brought to the attention of the As
sociation and it was the 'unanimous
opinion that the trail should be
built and that the grass' and under
brush should be kept dowivin order
to make the trail more popular.
Needed improvements on Vine
yard street were discussed. Judge
McKay reported that on Wedncs
day a team had fallen into the' ditch
along this street and the wagon was
overturned and much damage was
done. The accident was duo to'the
fact that the street there is so nar
row that the team in order to pass
another team had met with the a
This street should certainly be
widened and made one Of the best
thoroughfares of town.
