of the ninth inning the Waikapus

J. Garcia started in the box for
Stars but was replaced by Bento
in the fourth inning after five runs
wore scored by the Waikapus.
Bad throws and fumbles cost
many runs to the Stars and their
foolish base running helped a great

Judge Kcpoikai Reversed in
Matter of Injunction.
Tho Supreme Court handed
down a decision this morning,
written by Justice Ballon, in which
the degreo of Judge Kcpoikai,
granting a permanent injunction
to Frank Robello in his suit against
the County of Maui, is reversed.
1'ne cae is one in which Hobello
and others leased land from the
Territory, through which a public
road ran. A verbal understanding
was made at the time tluU this
oad should be closed when n now
road nearby was opened.
No sooner did Robello and his
associates get on the land than
thev obstructed the road with
fences. The Maui supervisors sent
out a gang of men who cut down
the obstructions. Robello then re
paired the fences and obtained an
injunction from Kepoikai restrin
ing the County from any further
The decision follows:
The plaintiff U the holder of a
right of purchase leae of land des
cribed therein as "lot No. 0 on the
government map of the Omaopio
lots dated Julv 9. 1900, and is
situated at Omaopio, Knla, District
of Makawao, Island of Maui, con-
tainincr an area of 51 .5 acres and
is classed as pastcral-agricultural
land." The government map re
ferred to shows a ''new 50' road"
running along a portion of the
boundary of lot 6 and an "old
road" marked in dashes extending
through lot 0. There is some con
flict of testimony as to how much
of the old road thus described is
now passable, it being claimed on
behalf of the plaintiff that it has
been abandoned at one spot, at
least bv wheeled vehicles, on ac-
count of a washout. After several
months' occupation of the lot,
plaintiff, claiming that he was ob
liged to fence under the terms of
his lease, fenced in the ends of the
old road, at the same time clearing
the cactus along a portion of the
line of the "new road,'' upon which
no construction work has been done
either bv the Territory or by the
county. The defendant, acting by
its road supervisor, broke down the
fences which obstructed the old
road whereupon the planum re
paired them and obtained a per
manent injunction against any fur
ther interference. From the de
cree granting this injunction de

Chinese Use Novel Method
to Bring Rain.
The drought in the Knla section
continues. On the afternoon of the
28th some of the Chinese of Kama
ole made a public petition to their
lin god. In the-opon under the
rays ot the hot summer sun small
tables were spread with various
viands, offerings to propitiate the
god of rain. In the center of the
principal table was a small roast
pig. Its head and snout were
pointed upward and its body cover
ed with small red papers contain
ing written prayeis Around it
weie bottles of sanishu and .beer
ind dishes containing cookies,
sweetmeats etc. On tins table also
was a box containing burning
punks of various sizes. After a
fusilade of crackers and bombs the
pagan rite came to an end.
On the Saturday and Sunday
previous there had been light rains

thought with a little encourage
ment the Oriental Jupiter IMuvius
would continue to favor them. If
the drought continued a month
longer most of the Kaniaole people
would have been obliged to leave
Act (3. L. 1905, Act 39) and R. 1,
Chap. 52, and no seps have been
taken under eithei sta'.utc in the
present instance. It is beyond
question that the commissioner of
puulio lauds cannot by leasing or
selling land with no express reser
vation extinguish the easement of
the public in a highway, nor is it
apparent that he assumed to do so
in the present instance. rJ he plain
tiff took his lease, with full know
ledge of the existing highway, not
only by reference thereto on the
map but by actual knowledge of
conditions on the ground: the mis-
erstanding, if any, being not
as to existing conditions but as to
what was to be done in the future.
The sub-agent of public lands, told
the applicants for these homestead
leases that until the new road was
built the old road was to be left
open, from which the plaintiff may
have assumed that either the Terri
tory or the county would proceed
in a reasonable time to construct
the new road as shown on the map,
and that the easement over the old
road would then be extinguished.
However this may be and what
ever may be the reasons for the
failure to construct the proposed
new road, the plaintiff was not
authorized to take the law into his
own hands and exclude the public
from a recognized and existing
highway. No injunction should
havo beon granted which restrain
ed the defendant from keeping
open the public highway. If the
destruction of the fences was in
excess of what was requisite for
this end ho should have been left
to his remedy at law.
Tn view of the result we have
leached it is unnecessary to decide
the reserved question as to the lia
bility of the county for costs, which
was based upon the assumption
that tho county was the losing

Kepoikai and sent Deputy Attorney
General Larnach to Maui to make
The charges are that Judge Ke
poikai, in a matter involving about
$2,700 due the minor heirs of one
T. Mori, denied a petition making a
responsible man guardian of the
heirs and administrator of the estate,
appointing in his stead an Illiterate
laborer named Krueger; and that

it came under the direct control of
Judge Kepoikai 's court, whereupon,
in September, 1905, the Judge per
sonally borrowed SlOOOof the $2700,
giving his note and paying, up to
the present time but $50 on account ;
and that, meanwhile, the minor
heirs of the late T. Mori, to whom
the money belongs, have been and
are living upon the charity of -relatives.

sufficient ground for Kepoikai 's im
peachment. Governor J' rear did not wish to

that he should rtwait the report of

THE CHANGES IN DETAIL
Following is an abstract of the
charges laid before the Governor:
In 1901, T. Mori, a Japanese
merchant of Kahului, died leaving a
fire claim which was later paid by
the government, to the amount of
$2700. An administrator was ap
pointed by Judge Kama. Later
Hon. Miki Saito, the Japanese Con
sul General, employed Atkinson,
Judd and Mott-Smith to represent
the children, minors, of T. Mori,
and at later period, E. A. Molt
Smith was given power of attorney
to represent tho duly authorized
guardian of the children. The power
of attorney was sworn to by the U
S. Consul at Yokohama and also by
Consul General Saito, and a petition
filed in the Circuit Court, over
which Judge A. N. Kepoikai pre
sided, askili"' that Attornev D. H
