Crusade May have
Honolulu, June 26 ''I am ready
to enforce tliu law, and I will do it
if the community still wants it
done," said Sheriff Iaukea this
morning, "but I want the reform
ers, ns well as the business men
who are now deriving profits from
jnoperty used for immoral pur
poses, to understand what this will
"We aro now collecting evidence
against the places where prostitu
tion is openly carried on, but it is
my intention, if I am forced to
carry it out, to strike at the root
of the evil, and to arrest the own
ers, agents, and lessees of these
properties, as I consider them
equally as guilty ob the d-ni.ens
thoreof. Furthermore, Ithalltake
such action not only in regard to
places at Iwilei, but against the
owners and agents of all such pro
perty, no matter where it is locat
ed. If forced to do so, I shall send
out notice to these people and there
are some very prominent firms in
volved, and after that arrests will
follow. I wish you would quote
the law on the subject, which is
very strict, carrying with it punish
ment by fine and also imprison
ment.'' The text of the law is as follows:
Sec. 3162. Houses of prostitu
tion; punishment. Whofiver keeps
or maintains a house or place of
ill-fame used or resorted to for the
purposes of prostitution or lewd
ness; whoever, as owner or lessee
or agent thereof, knowingly lets or
permits any house or place to be
kept or maintained for the pur
poses of prostitution or lewdness;
whoever, as owner, lesiee, or agent
thereof, suffers any such house or
place to be kept or used for the
purposes of prostitution or lewd
ness, after having been notified in
writing that such house or place is
kept and used for such purposes,
shall be fined not less than one
hundred dollars nor more than one
thousand dollars and be imprison
ed for not less than sixty days nor
more than six months at hard
Saito would Stop
Honolulu, June 26 "Should I
become chief of the immigration
section of the Department of For
eign Affairs of Japan, I will stop
all further emigration of Japanese
to other countries."
The above statement was made
by Miki Saito, the JapaneseConsul
General in Hawaii. He confirmed
the story that he had applied to be
relieved of his post here. Although
no reply has been received, from
hia home government, Mr. Saito is
expecting it every moment. It has
been currently reported here in the
Japanese community that on his
return to Japan ho would probably
be given the position of chief of the
immigration section. Of course
there ie no such office in existence
at present, but the prospects ore
that such an office will be estab
lished in the future for the purpose
of facilitating the work of the de
saito eaia, nowever, mat lie
would ra,ther retire from active
work and live in quiet, probably
in the country.
Saito does not know as yet what
work he would take up on his re
turn to Japan. "I am tired of
working;" said Saito. ''I have
been a Government official for
many years. Previous to my com
ing here I was Consul at Singapore
for two years, after which I went
to Tacoma in the same capacity.
From there I came to Honolulu at
the time of the annexation of these
Islands to the United States.
Saito is very popular with his
countrymen here. During his
Consulate administration there
broke out on various plantations
ten strikes, all of which he success
fully arbitrated. Saito withstood
all attacks made against him, par
ticularly from the Japanese press
Caleb Powers and
Jim Howard Free.
Frankfort (Ky Juno 13. By
announcing the pardon to-day of
Caleb Powers and Jatt.es Howard,
Governor Willson closed the last
chapter in one of the most noted
criminal casus in the history of
this State, in which people all over
the United Stales have formally
expressed their interest by signing
petitions for pardon.
In the closing days of January,
eight years ago, while the contest
of William Goebcl foi the guber
natorial seat occupied by Gover
nor Taylor was being held, Goebel
was1 shot, dying later from his
" The shot was believed to have
come from a half open window of
the Secretary of State's office and
as Caleb Powers was then filling
that position, suspicion was at once
directed toward him and Ins arrest
followed. Four times has Powers
been put on trial for his life on the
charge of complicity in the murder,
the first three trials resulting in
conviction and sentence, death be
ing the penalty in two trials.
On the fourth trial, which came
after the case had been carried to
the United States Court, being
finally appealed to the Supreme
Court which sent it back to the
State Courts, the jury disagreed
and thereupon the efforts for a par
don for Powers, as well as for James
Howard, who had been convicted
some years ago on a charge of com
plicity, were renewed.
Many hundreds of thousands of
signatures of persons of all parties
and all sections were appended to
the petitions that poured in on
Governor Willson, who for several
weeks has been considering the
case. His decision was made known
today in the shape of a formal
statement of the facts tmd his rea
"It is not likely that at any time
during my term of office shall I be
called upon to decide matters of
graver importance than those pre"
sented by the applications for par
don of Caleb Powers and James B.
Howard," said Governor Willson.
"I have given to their considera
tion the most careful, conscientious
and thorough investigation and
'thought in my power. I realize
that whatever my decision may be
it will be harshly criticised.
"The murder of Ser.ator Goebel
destroyed a remarkable life, brou
ght the deepest grief to his family
and thousands of friends who loved
him, overthrew a whole State elec
tion, destroyed the peace and good
feeling of the State for eijht years,
set neighboor against neighbor,
made politics almost war, stained
the good name of Kentucky, and
shocked the civilized world.
"Then was and is no shadow of
excuse or palliation for this base
crime. There can be no mercy for
anyone guilty zl the murder or of
aiding or abetting it, but the more
grave the crime, ihe more serious
is the responsibility of deciding the
question of guilt and the more im
perative the duty of, guarding
against injustice and wrony im
pression under the pressure of pub
lic excitement, passion or prejudice.
'I grant Caleb Powers a full
and unconditional pardon for the
offense with which he stands charg
ed and a restoration to all his
rights of citizenship, and order that
he be forthwith released from jail
My reason for granting a pardon
is that I arc firmly convinced that
he is, beyond all reasonable doubt,
innocent of the crime charged
against him, and that any further
prosecution againt him for the
crime charged would bo a great
wrong and against the peace and
well-being" of the commonwealth."
ONLY A FIGURE OF SPEECH
"Mammy," said Pickaninny Jim,
"dat spcech-makin' man done told
me dat if I was a good boy I might
bo President some day.' '
"Go 'long, chile!" was the an
swer; "you's gwines be lucky if
you gits a chance to walk up to de
polls an vote. --Washington Star.
Rancher Nearly Killed
by Angry Swarming Bees.
FRESNO, June 12. Millions of
bees attacked Hubert Stafford,, a
ranch hand, and his team of four
horses near here yesterday.
Stafford is near to death. Three
of the horses were killed by the bees
and the fourth will die.
The team ran away on the rond
at the Blane ranch, where Stafford
is employed, and tearing through a
fence, plunged into an apiary of
forty hives, upsetting many of them.
Instantly man and horses were
engulfed in a cloud of the angry,
buzzing insects, that plied their
stings fiercely upon them.
Stafford might not have been so
badly hurt had he not tried to rescue
his horses. Madly stung, he ran
from the scene, but turned back,
when he realized that the horses
were down and helpless.
With a blinding mass of bees on
his head and face and his hands
crusted with them, he worked until
he had freed the animals from the
His face swollen so that he was
unrecognizable, Stafford ran to the
ranch house. Mrs. Ulane'-s screams
brought other men from the field,
and the injured man was attended
Stafford has a chance of recovery.
Garfield Asked to
Investigate Land Matters.
The Hawaiians are after the
scalp of certain government offi
cials. They said so at a public
meeting, held at Aala park last
Saturday night says the Bulletin.
The following resolution, which
was read and unanimously adopt

ed to Secretary Garfield of the De
partment of Interior when he ar
rives here. A memorial to be pre
sented together with the resoultion

meet. It is the intention of the
committeemen to request of Secre
tary Garfield that he make an in
dependent investigation of the local
land laws and the method under
which the Government lands are
disposed of by lease or by sale at
public auction. Almost every
speaker at the meeting denounced
tbe officials who have charge of the
Government lands. They express
ed themselves in favor of having
better land laws here so that the
interest of the poor may bo as
well protected as those of the rich.

Government of the United States
will soon arrive here in Hawaii to
investigate the conditions of Gov
ernment lands in this Territory;

of Hawaii nei have the right to ex

tive, the steps taken by the Gov
ernment of the Territory of Hawaii
in dealing out these government
lands only for the benefit of money
ed people and depriving the Native
Hawaiians of email means to ac
quire such lands; and also to in
form said representative of the
united Mates, the wish of ti e na
tive Hawaiian peoplei that such
government lands should be par
celed out upon reasonable condi
tions that will meet the poor Ha
waiian's purse, in conformity with
the provisions of the General Land
Laws of the United States; or to
pass an Act by Congress controll
ing the Government lands of Ha
waii nei, whicli Act to contain pro
visions awarding homesteads, un
der favorable and reasonable con
ditions, to native Hawaiians, and
also provision for a financial aid
from the Government of the United
States to assist indigent Hawaiian
families to improve their holdings.
