Court In putting the seal of disapproval on the bringing of
Decisions, incritlcs law suits Judge Kingsbury is doing much for
tlu good of the community. In several cases lately he lias discouraged
a class of suits that should never have In-cn brought. This the Judge lias
done in a most practical way. He simply fixes the fee of the attorney
at so small a figure that no attorney would care to take a case and do tin
work necessary for the fee allowed.
In the Kauhimahu divorce case a most ditlieult problem was before the
court. Mrs. Kauhimahu became converted to a so-ealled religion ami
infatuated with a leader of that sect and practically deserted her husband
and her home for the preacher and the new religion. She has steadfastly
refused to return to her home and does not even speak to her husband
!,..,, meets biov. The whole communitv blames her for the broken
home and the trouble that has resulted. The allowance of but twenty
five dollars for legal services will act as a warning to all attorneys to bring
no suits of this class against innocent husbands for erring wives. Tin
allowance of but ten dollars for alimony and that to be paid forty days charge of t his school, wish
liimfi nml llien i wee klv allowance of but three dollars per week will
prohablv have some effect on the minds of erring wives should they
template leaving their husbands for U tter looking preachers.
The order of the court that the first payment of alimony be made forty
days hence was a most wise provision. There lias never lx'en the slight
est reason whv the wife should have left licr husband and slie is now
given a chance to return to her home where she pnierly belongs or if
she does not do this but returns to her so-called preacher the court may
consider that at some future day in making another order.
The w ife testified that it is not her intention to return to her husband
and if she had Ih'CH wise she would have allowed the divorce granted by
Judge Kepoikai to stand. As it is now she is not free from her husband
with whom she does not intend to live nor is she given such alimony as
she sought nor was her attorney paid such an amount as one would nat
urally desire for the work necessary in a divorce suit.
The above is but an instance of many suits that have U'cn brought and
fought out that should never have been contested. Some time ago an
illiterate Portuguese bv the name of M. S. Nevite of Waihee contested a
suit brought by Governor (.'leghorn for a claim of two hundred and forty
dollars. Nevite lost in the District Court. His attorney appealed to the
' Circuit Court where the decision of the lower court was sustained. An
appeal was taken to the Supreme Court but on the failure of the attorney
to perfect the appeal the same was dismissed on motion of Attorney 1)
II. Case. In this case Nevite paid Three hundred and fifty four dollars
niwl fiftv ee nts ns in full of the amount due for the judgement and costs
and besides he paid his attorney for work that was of no Ix-ncfit to him
Whether the attorneys m these cases or in any ol tticm were respon
sible for the bringing of the suits we do not know nor is it our purpose to
go into that phase of the cases but we do feel that where the court dis
courages this class of cases attorneys will be less apt to bring such cases

Controlling Interest to Ha
waiian Pineapple Co.
At the annual meeting of the
Haiku Fruit & Tacking Co. held
at Paia plantation office, Wednes
day afternoon, the 12th, all the old
officers of the company were re
elected. The important feature of the
meeting, however, was the propsi
tion submitted by the Hawaiian
Pineapple Co. of Oahu offering to
purchase the controlling interest
in the Maui company at a high

The Haiku shareholders will un
doubtedly accept the liberal terms
offered for three hundred one of
the total six hundred shares.
What is practically a consolida
tion of the two companies will be
of great benefit to both in a finan
cial way. If the deal is success
fully carried through it is stated
that the Maui company will run
on the same as before without
changes in management.
Manager J. C. Pole of the Ha
waiian Pineapple Co. was present
at the meeting.
There is talk among the share
holders of the Pukalani Dairy and
Pineapple Co. of erecting a can
nery on their lands at Lilikoi, Ma
kawao. where it has nn abundant
supply of water.
That another cannery must soon
be established in Makawao goes
without savin''. not only because
the Haiku institution is already
overburdened with the work of
canning the products of its own
fields and those of its planters (the
area of which is continually in
creasing), but also because the
government is soon to open up to
homesteaders many acres of pine
apple land at Haiku.
The Haiku company has already
placed a limit upon the amount of
fruit to be accepted from its six
planters and has notified the Pu
kalani Co. that it can not receive
any Pukalani plantation pines
after the present season.
