with regard to members of his pro

Douthitt, the returned attorney,
said thitafternoon :
"Conditions over there arc not
suitable for Americans and there
are a good many reasons for that-.
One is that Americans have lost
prestige there, and of couYse the
action of Judge Wilfley in disbar
ring American lawyers has naturally
had its effect ' on the Chinese. In
other words, the confidence of the
Chinese population is destroyed al

the situation ,hcro and the best
American lawyers can hope-to gain
is the smaller business, the larger
affairs being handled by the British
"Conditions as described are not
only due to the recent loss of pres
tige by American lawyers but are of
long standing. American merchants
there have never attempted to cater
to the Oriental trade. It is common
talk in the Orient that, instead of
shipping their goods thither properly'
packed, they act as if they thought
any old thing would do. In conse
quence the Chinese have consider
ably lost .faith in American mer
chandise. Shanghai is essentially a
"All of the British barristers prac
tice before Judge Wilfley and the
only attorneys who are subjected to
examination are Americans, other
lawyers being admitted on motion

If an American lawyer has been ad
mitted to the United States courts
of China he is allowed to practice in
the British courts. But if not ad
mitted to practice in his own coun
try's courts of course he cannot be
admitted to practice in the British

Superintendent J. N. S. Williams
of the Kahului Railroad Company
has returned from Honolulu where
he was in consultation with Super
intendent of Public Works Mart ton
Campbell relative to "many im
provements planned for the water
front of Kiihului. With the build
ing of the breakwater Kahului has
asumed second place in the com
merce of the Territory and tnariy
improvements are lining made and
One of the most important mat
ters taken up vas in connection
with the new wharves which are
being projected for Kahului. All
propositions of this kind are at
present tentative waiting on the
approval of the Harbor lines which
have been submitted to the Secie-
tary of War through Captain Ot
well and which were' forwarded to
Washington on August 1 When
they have been appj roved the act
ual work in forcing ahead the har
bor improvements will be com
menced. In tho meantime Mr. Williams
is going ahead with plans for the
improvements in older that no time
may be lost. While with Mr. Camp
bell plans for wharves nnut wharf
beds, similar to those which are
now being constructed in Honolulu
were talked over and Mr. Williams
brought a nay with him a blue
print showing the type of construc
tion of the new. shed which is be
ing erect d oh the Soronson wharf,
which exemplifies the work of ibis
kind which has been picked out as
mostrittiiiL; for the local'conditions.
Another matter, of primary in
terest which was taken up was that
of the Kahului water supply. At
present if a serious Cue should
break out in the town there would
not be enough water to do more
than urge it ahead, With the in
creasing importance of Kahului as
a seaport and the large sums of
money which are being invested
there and which will he invested
tnere, some first class system of tire
protection is required.
For this the first requisite is
water. The present water supply
goes in a four inch pipe from Wai
luku and when this city is drawing
011 the main there is practically
nothing left for the town below.
Superintendent Campbell told Mr.
Williams that hs would recom
mend to tho coming Legislature
that money bo appropriated for a
reinforced concrete reservoir with
a capacity of 300,100 gallons.
This wjl! be located on the sand
hills between Kahului and Wailu
ku rind will ho filled during the
night when Wailuku is not draw
ing on the supply. Larger, mains
probably eight inch, instead of tho
present four inch pipe, which is
practically useless on account of
friction, will also bo recommended.
With this to fall back on for a
supply Kahului should be well off.
Somo years ago an appropriation
for such a reservoir was obtained
.from tho Legislature, hut was
never expended being allowed to
lapse for some reason which is
hard to understand.
terpriscs that are started over there
with American brains and capital
have a certain number of British di
rectors and employ British lawyers.
This course is no doubt with a view
to repairing the lack of confidence
among the Chinese. "
Inquest Jury Will Visit
' Honolulu, August IS With the
witnesses tangled in their testimony
and unable to tell whether the ac
cident oeeured on one side of the
street or the other, the coroner's jury
empaneled in the case of Lau . Kai
Foy, the Chinese boy killed in an
auto accidents Saturday afternoon,
adjourned until C 6'clock this after
noon to visit the scene of the tragedy.
This is done so that the witnesses
may point out just exactly what oe
eured when Oscar White's auto and"
the' bicycle on which the boy was
iding came together.
The two main witnesses, besides
Mr. White, were Lum Kwai Foon
and Bobert Ilobron Jr. The former,
who was propelling tho bicycle with
Lau Kai Foy riding on the handle
bars, is a. small Chinese, slight of
build and quite young. He stated
that he was wheeling up River street
about four or five steps away from
the Waikiki sidewalk when the auto
and the bicycle, collided. His testi
mony from that point was hazy, and
when ho saiil that the auto was be
tween the sidewalk and the bicycle
as it was struck, and could not re
member on which-side of the auto
the deceased had fallen, it was de
cided to take liis further testimony
directly on' the scene: The boy said
he could see the auto; but had to
look up and over the shoulders of
the boy in front of him.
Robert. Ilobron said that tho acci
dent tool: place just at the intersec
tion of Berelania avenue and River
street, but after stating that the auto
was right close to the bridge at one
time and then that it was close to
the Waikiki sidewalk of River street,
ho was also withdrawn from tho wit
ness stand, and his complete testi
mony will be taken on the scene this
afternoon, at which time Mr. White's
auto will be present, so that the ex
act distance can be determined.
Mr. White in giving his testimony
said that he was coming down the
right side of Bcretania and turning
into River street toward the Kwa side
of that thoroughfare when he saw
the bicycle coining up. Ho tooted
his horn twice and then, noticing
that the bicycle was doubly loaded,
and wishing to warn the bicyclist,
who was concealed behind the bov
on the handlebars, Ik? called out
loudly. When the bov saw the auto
he swerved first to his right and then
to his left, the auto at the, time
swinging toward the Ewa sjdc of
River street. Then tho bicycle and
auto came togc ther, the bike striking
the fiont right wheel of the machine,
whereupon the boy on the handle
bars plunged headlong to the street
Mr. White testified that at tho mo
ment of contact his machine was go
ing perhaps throe miles an hour and
was brought to a standstill almost
Dr. McDonald, who made the au
topsy, stated that the boy's skull
was badly fractured.
The inquest ( was conducted by
Deputy Sheritt .larrett, with Deputy
County Attorney Milverton assisting
in the examination of witness. In
addition, P. C. Peters was present
in tho interest of the deceased's fa
ther, Lau Tong, and Judge Perry to
represent the interests of Mr. White.
