San Franeco, July 13. Lured
into a dense Philippine forest in
aizon while on a search for it mur
derer. Allen Gard, Governor of.
the District of Lanao, suddenly
found himself helpless in the clut
ches of a desperate Moro and was
forced to engage in a hand-to-hand
struggle with him. During this
battle, which occurred latu one
night in the very heart of the for
est, the Governor was shot several
times tlnough both legs and arms
tho murderer, who then lied
under the cover of darkness. Only
short distance from the scene of
tho battle, several cavalrymeii were
Governor Gard, still suffering
from his many wounds, was brought
to this city today oh tlm United
States transport Sheridati. On the
long vovage across the Pacific lie
occupied a cot in the hospital ward
of the troopship and upon the re
lease of the vessel from ouarantine
this morning, was mot by his father

d from Xew Jersey to be present
when the ship bearing their son
came into port, and, i li Captain
Bingham of the Medical Corps at
San Francisco, th.y will accom
pany the Governor to New York.
Mthough racked with pain, Gov
ernor Gard consented to tell of his
experience at tho hands of the
Moros, in what is perhap3 the most
dangerous province in the Philip
pines. According to the statements
of the injured man, the Moros are
continually making trouble for
Americans at Lanao, and a num
ber of raids have been made by
bands of natives within the past
While carrying-on the duties of
lis oflice Governor Gard learned
that an agent named James Smith
had been attacked by the Moron
ind murdered at his station just
out of Lanao. Many reports reach
ed the head of the province telling
of the whereabouts of the murder-
and gathering a number of
cavalrymen, the Governor set out
to run him down. Once they caught
light of the desperado making
tracks acrcss an open space in the
forest. The Governor calculated
that by night they would effect a
capture. I'he paity pushed -on
further through tho thickly wooded
section of the county, but the fugi
tive had the lead on his pursuers
vnd kept out of sight Camp -was
finally pitched for the night and
tho hunters letired all except the
Governor, who, attrnctetl by a noise
to the right of the camp, determin
ed to investigate.
The .crafty Moro lured the official
to a clump of big trees and then
suddenly leapijtg out into the tall
grass covered the governor with a
gun. lJoth men engaged in a nana
to hand conflict and for a time the
Governor seemed to have the ad
vantage. " With a sudden turn,
lowover, the Moro threw off his
opponent and grabbing Ins gun
fired several shots into the body of
his pursuer. Theso shots took
effect in tho legs and arms of Gov
ernor Ciard. The noise of the
shooting brought tho soldiers hurry
ing to the scene, but the assassin
had fled and the victim was taken
to the hospital at Manila.
Another victim of tho. Moros to
arrive on the Sheridan was II. A.

sary Department near Malabong
Ho was badly hacked with a bolo
about the head and arms and left
for dead near Camp Vickers.

that such a course was necessary
The petition was denied and H
Krueger was appointed guardian of
the children and administrator of
the estate. Krueger filed his final
accounts with the court on January
On July 7, 11)05, the money be
longing to the estate, amounting to
about S2500, was paid into the court
by cheek, made payablo to E. II.
Hart, clerk. On the same date, the
account was changed in the Kir.t
National Bank of Wailuku, -from 13.
II. Hart, clerk, to the Second Cir
cuit Court, as trustee and on the
same date, again, the account was
transferred in the National Bank,
from the Second Circuit Court as
trustee, to the .general fund of the
Second Circuit Court. ,
There the .money lay until August
loth, when Judge ICepoikai borrow
ed $1000 of it, giving his note with
out endorsement or other security,
in the following terms:"

Here was an unsecured note to
run for three years at a low rate of
interest, against money which
should have been promptly devoted
to the relief of the destitute heirs-,
the children of T. Mori. Upon that
note, two payments of 825 each were
made in 11)05, since when not a
cent of principal or interest bus been
credited on that instrument.
EFFORTS TO HECOVER.
13. A. Mott-Smith, -attorney in
fact for the children has petitioned,
has written repeatedly, urging the
court to hurry the settlement of the.
estate, as the children were practi
cally destitute,, hut up to the present
time, not one cent has been sent to
ine children and ine money mat is
left lies idle in the First National
Bank at Wailuku, available for an
other Judicial loan.
The children, to whom tho money
belongs, are wretchedly ijoor and
are fed and clothed by poor relatives.
Twenty-live hundred dollars with
accumulated interest, would be a
competency to them in Japan.
If the charges are substantiated
proceedings vo impeach Judge Ke
poikai will begin at once."
The matter lias been investigated
by Deputy Attorney General Lar
nach and lie has made an oral re
port to tho Governor.

was his duty to protect.

THE I'OLV-LOOKIXO $1,000 NOTE.
It is now Kepoikai's move. Depu
ty Attorney General Larnach and
Auditor Fisher returned from Wai
luku this morning and made a ver
bal report to Governor Froar, who
refuses 'to give out anything for pub
lication, regarding Kepoikai's much
discussed $1,000 note.
Tho report made by Larnach, he
ing kept from publication on account
of the fact that Kepoikai should he
given a chance for a hearing before
tho other side is given publicity
through ofhcial channels, makes it
impossible for a definite statement
to be made. It is learned, however,
from Maui sources that Larnach was
shown the certain proof that Kepoi
kai borrowed $1,000 from the Moy
estate on an unsecured note, while
the estate was in the. hands of the
court. Naturally his report to Gov
ernor irear would contain tins in
If this is so, and there is apparent
ly absolutely no doubt in tlie matter,
it can be easily decided that Gover
nor Frear's report and recommenda
tion to Washington must be. The
following paragraphs from a recent
decision of the Supremo Court on a
case where an administrator was
misusing the funds of an estate show
the feeling' that exists there, and it
should he remembered that Governor
Frcnr was Chief Justice of that body
for many years, when the decisions
referred to were written:
"U)on all possible occasions this
court lias endeavored to give notice
that it will not tolerate the practice
of treating estates of deceased per
sons as fair game for the incurring
of unnecessary or excessive legal ex
penditures. Notley V. Brown, II!
Haw. 575, 57!). Few probate cases,
however, reach this court and the
responsibility must rest on the cir
cuit judges Tor tho conscientious -d-niinistration
of estates. In the pre
sent ease as soon as a contest arose
tho circuit judge seems to have done
what was ossiblo to straighten out
the state of nilairs then existing, but
it seems probable that if the matter
had remained uncontested the little
heritage of these infant Hawaiians
would have Ix'on wasted under the
guise of legal proceedings."
The casein point was one in which
a lawyer, in collusion with the ad
ministrator of an estate, piled up
the legal expenses as high a possible
If so scathing a rebuke is given to
an administrator and his attWney,
it remains to be seen what will bo
done, if a circuit judge uses his of
ficial position to borrow money,
which it happens at the time is badly
needed for tho little children of the
deceased; who are dependent upon
the charity of others in Japan, while
their money is being used for private
gain by the one who should watch

""San Francisco, July 12. Mrs
Lottie Grange, livjng at 111 Broad
way, fought to regain her liberty
with tho fury of an entrapped tigress
yesterday afternoon in tho Pacific
Trunk and Bag Company at 5517
Front Street, after being accused by
C. Kreuger, tho proprietor, with be
ing an accomplice in the theft of
leather bag. The woman drew
small knile Irom her pocket ant
slashed at her captors, wounding C
Kreuger on tho lavnd and wrist, am
Walter Kreuger, the son, on the
throat. Both wounds were slight.
Mrs. Grange, accompanied by an
unknown man, entered the store
.shortly after noon and asked to be
shown some trunks. The saleswoman
displayed several. The woman's com
pahion in tho meanwhile samitom
to the front of the store. Watching
,his opportunity, he suddenly seized
a hand bag valued at $17 and ran
out of tho door. The theft was ob
served by C. Kreuger, who, inline
diately suspecting that the woman
was his accomplice, seized her. The
man escaped in the confusion.
.Mrs. Grange broke away from her
captor and ran up the rear stairs to
the second lloor, pursued by loth
the proprietor 'and his son. They
overtook her, and she turned on
them in a fury, brandishing her
knife. Before father and son could
overpower the woman she had
wounded both. The knife was taken
from her and the police wore notifi
ed. Shortly afterward Patrolman
Tracy of the Harbor Police Station
arrived on the scene and placed the
woman under arrest. At the City
Prison she was hooked on two char-
ges of assault with a deadly weapon
and a charge of petty larceny. The
police say that the woman has been
arrested several times before, and
was at one time connected with a.
gang of thieves who looted railroad
At the prison she vehemently de
nied that she knew tho man who
stole the bag, and says she was de
fending herselt from the unwarrant-
d attack of 0. Kreuger and his son.
