Charged With Having Ob
scene Pictures for Sale.
Editor K. Yokogawa, of thi Maui
Shinhun wlin was arrested. Inst week
ly Deputy Marslmll H. Irwin nn 11
charge of having nhsccne pictures in
possession for sale seems to find con-
siderahle trouble in giving hail and
returning to his place of husiness.
The Advertiser of the 24th says
The prosperity of Fukushitni, a
Japanese Nalioh of this city, yester
day proved his own undoing and tlx
lisconcerting of one Negoro, sunn
what widely known as one of tin
heads of the Higher Wage Associa
tion. At the present time Kukushimi
is bemoaning his had luck, cursing
his own folly, calling down anathi
ma upon the head of Negoro, au
wishing ardently that he had neve
heard of the Higher Wage Associa
tion or any of its ollicers. And tin
story runs thusly :
j Japanese named loKogawa was
t T . !
arrested on Maui by the Federal
authorities and haled lieforc tin
United States Commissioner at Ho
nolulu to explain as to his allcgci
misdeeds. He failed to explain satis
factorily, and the Commissioner in
formed him that it would cost him
just two thousand iron dollars to g
free even temporarily.
Now, it happen that Yokogawa
is a friend of Makino and Negoro.
In fact, the offense of which hi
accused is the same as that with
which Makino is charged, having
obscene pictures in his possession
for sale. So it was up to Negoro ami
Makino to help him out of his pili-
kia. Negoro went out to get bonds
men. He brought in three. Oik
of them was Fukushimi.
Fukushimi stood before the Fed
eral othcial and held up his hand
and swore that he was worth more
So glad to hear it." cooed tin
official. Very glad, indeed. Do
you know, you are just the man we
are looking for? Mr. Taft, the
President of the tinted States,
didn't get his salary last week lx
cause we werea littleshort of money?
Hut, now that you're here it just n
minds me. You used to lp a mem
ber of the 'Ten-Dollar Club,' and if
'111 not mistaken, there is u little
matter of seven hundred dollars in
fine and exists owing by you to the
government, ion said you were
broke, you know, and took the poor
man's oath so you wouldn't have to
pay the judgement. I'm awfully
glad, Mr. Fukushimi, that you have
licen doing so well. Will you pay
cash, or will you send a check
around in the morning?"
They brought Fukushimi and Ne
goro, to, after vigorous application
of cold water and smelling salts.
Hut they are still going around in a
trance und wondering who threw
The hard-headed government of
ficial, meantime, has been putting
in his time getting out a writ of scire
facias which means that he is going
to get out aii execution against the
property of Fukushimi and try to
take it away from him to pay that
five years' old debt. Whether or
not he can do so remains to be seen,
but he's going to make a try at it,
anway. Negoro says the Federal
authorities are Mulling, that the
taking of the poor man's oath re
leased Fukushimi frmn all obliga
tions to Fncle Sam. Hut it happens
that Negoro is not yet the judge and
it is for the latter to decide that
particular point in law.
Honolulu, July 27. Ojm ii defi
ance of the power of the government
of the I'nited States, supreme con
tempt for the laws of the country
and silent mockery of the authori
ties appointed to administer those
laws seems to be the attitude of K.
Yokogawa, editor of the Maui Shin
bun, according to the Federal
authorities who have been trying
unsuccessfully for some time to teach
I Mr. Yokogawa the error of his ways.
jThey are just making a new attempt
I along that line, another warrant for
I the arrest of the Japanese editor
; having been- sworn to yesterday,
j charging him w it 1 1 having sent in
decent literature through the mails.
J Yokogawa was indicted by the
! Federal grand jury in January on
the charge of having obscene matter
in his iHissession for sale. He plead
ed guilty to the charge, and begged
the court to punish him with a line
instead of sending him to jail. Al
though his oiTense was flagrant, (he
court was lenient and let him olf
with a line of 100 and costs.
Hut Yokogawa swenis to have
learned nothing of the intended les
son, for two weeks ago lie was again
arrested on a similar charge, bven
that, however, had no elTi-ct, for he
has steadfastly continued in the
course of conduct which had already
got him into trouble. Every issue
of the Shinbun since his second
arrest has contained matter which
the Tinted States District attorney
characterizes as indescribably filthy
Articles in the issues of. Jtjy 20 am
July 2." were, it is alleged, particu
larly obscene. The pain-rs were sent
through the mail, which is a serious
violation of the Federal laws, and it
is the intention of the district at
torney to do everything in his power
to see that Yokogawa pays the pen
alty for his defiance of the laws of
government and decency.
Obscenity appears be a vice ex
treniely prevalent among a certain
class of the Japanese who have mint
to these islands. The jxistcards
found in the safe of Makino Higgin
liotham, and which have led to his
irrest by the Federal authorities,
are disgustingly vile, and the autho
rities are determined to prosecuti
him t the limit of the law for hav
ing them in his jiossessioii ami for
sale, as they believe he did.

lie was undergoing cross-cxainin:
lion at the hiiiiii ot .Mr Light foot
for tlie defence.
.Mr. Kinney for the prosecution
asked I11111 in redirect examination
this morning if the Nippu Jiji evi
published ' anything advising the
Japanese against violence. I, midfoot
objected to till' question as iliilua
ferial. Kinney argued that the lung
uage of the Higher Wage organ ad
dressed to men maddened hy excite
nient might have a different mean
nig if addressed to a dispassionati
inning. mit wiien articles wen
published from which words- had
heen struct out that were so strong
that the editors did not dare to print
them, yut which as puhlished ad
vised the icople to "get rid of and
"exterminate'' those who opposii
the agitation, and without one word
or expression to indicate that tin
language did not mean the worst
that it implied, the prosecution had
a right to show such laek of inno
cent intention in puhlishing lang
uage that on lis face was inciting to
Llghtfoot denied the statement
that those men had murder iu their
minds. Also he , denied that tin
writers of the letters in evidence had
murder in their minds.
MY received a letter advising the
murder of Sheha," was the sensa
tional admission I.ightfoot then
made, adding, "and we wrote n
letter in reply to show that it wa.
wrong to think of such a thing."
Kinney demanded where was tin
evidence of any letter against mur
Judge c liolt ruled that tl ic pcml
ing question should lc answered.
The Nippu Jiji never puhlished
anything advisingthe people against
acts of violence," Sheha said and
was immediately released hv counsel
in hoth sides
W. O. Smith, secretary id' the
Hawaiian Sugar Planters' Associa
tion, was next called. Asked if any
of the Higher Wage leaders among
the defendants had ever interviewed
him he said, amidst someolijcctions
raised and overruled :
l'heiv were some communica
tions on the suliject of higher wages.
Makino, Soga and one or two others
came to see me early in Januarv.
Not to make demands ''
I don't want to know ahotit
that,'' Kinney interrupted. "Were
they representing the Higher Wage
A ssi iciation?"
They were," .Mr. Smith replied.
I 'it I Mr. Sheha interview you on

"Mr. Sheha and Mr. Kimura

Kinney here released the witness

Witness thought there were only
three of the association leaders who
interviewed him. Kinny ohjected
to the line of cross-examination as
Light font said Kinney always oh-
jecteil to being coniclIcd to show
his hand. "Now I am eoinncllcd
to show my lmnd," he went on. "I
want to prove ly this witness that
these men did Hot represent the
Higher Wage Association when they
called on him."
Mr. Smith U-ing allowed to an
swer said that Makino ami the two
others Spoke to him almllt the in
