H. C. & S. Co. v The Territory of
The Hawaiian Commercial and
Sugar Company won its suit estab
lishing its right to the fishery lying
between Paia and Waiohu and
known as the Kahului fishery. This
suit was brought by the company
some years ago in compliance with
' a provision of the Organic Act which
makes it obligatory upon all parties
claiming fishery rights to estahlislj
the same by a suit in court.
Kauhimaiiu v Kauhimahu.
In all of the cases before the court
there was probably not a more dili
cult case to decide than the. one in
which Mrs. Annie Kauhimahu
sought a legal separation from her
husband, Moses Kauhimahu, the
teacher in the public school at Ka
hului. For many years the Kauhimahus
lived happily together until a smooth
tongued tine looking fellow by the
name of Ezera appeared on the scene
and won the. wife over to a new re
ligion of which he is the head.
Mrs. Kauhimahu deserted her
' husband and has declined to live
with him since but has steadfastly
clung to her new religion and the
Last year Moses Kauhimahu
brought suit for a divorce which was
granted by Judge Kepoikai. Al
though an overwhelming number of
the people here who know the facts
of the case believe the decision of
Judgo Kepoikai was just and pro
per the Supreme Court held that the
causes for a divorce set up in the
coitVlaint were not sufficient
grounds for a divorce and rovorsec

In the suit before the court here
this week Mrs. Kauhimahu was the
complainant. lhe decision is as
That the defendant has not been
guilty of cruelty to the plaintiff
That the defendant did not neglect
or fail to support the plaintiff up to
the time when a decree of divorce
in n suit in which the defendant
was the plaintiff and this plaintiff
waR the defendant, was grantct
which decreo was afterwards revers
ed by the supreme court;
That since the reversal of said dc
creo tho said parties have not spoken
together and neither of them has in
any manner treated the other ns be

That she allowed the said preacher
Ezera, and those connected with
him to obtain undue, improper and
wicked inlluence over hermind and

grave suspicions of infidelity and

The Morning Stars whitewashed
the Healanis last Sunday afternoon
at Well's Park and scored 'i runs.
As will be seen in the summary of
the games the Healanis did not get
a single base'hit off Upton.
Hilly Bailey, the crack shortstop
of the Stars failed to return from
Honolulu by last Saturday's Olati
dine, and Geo. Cuminings, the
veteran ball player, took his place
and did some line work.
Henry Walker played center for
the Stars Sunday. He made his
first error this season by letting a
pop-fly bounce off his mit.
Dr. St. Sure, tne manger of the
Healanis, in an interview had the
following to say: "I certainly did
expect my team to do better than
they did Sunday. 1 was surprized
at the result of the game. The
Stars' battery of Meyers and Up
ton had my boys guessing all
along Whenever they Would hit
Upton it would go in the air and
land in the mitt of some player.
We will have to shake off our hoo
doo and win some games, and I
have a feeling that the next game
wo play with the Kahuluis will re
sult in our favor. We are not sore
nor discouraged and hope to sur
prise some team before the season
