In our report of the Asano Naka

wo said :
"Asano Nakashima was tried before-
a jury on a charge of being a
Cyprian Frcitas and Nakainura,
two paid spies in the employ of the
Sheriff, were the witnesses against
the woman. According to their
own testimony they were as guilty
as the woman.
The woman was defended by J.
M. Vivas. The jury brought in a
verdict of not guilty in just twenty
The Judge sent for the Sheriff
anil gave some good advice relative
to the manner of obtaining evidence
asjt is patent that the jury did not
approve of the kind of testimony
given against the Japanese defen
dant. The conference between the judge
anil the-sheriff is understood-to have
been a perfectly friendly one."
In reference-to this we have re
ceived the following communication
from Sheriff Saffery and are pleased
to note the stand the sheriff has
taken in cases of this kind and gladly
miblish the letter in order that no
wrongful impressions may be form
Your last issue called the. atten

advice given me by the lion. Sol
den 15. Kingsbury rega riling a cer
tain method of obtaining evidences
in certain criminal cases. I would
now like to say that your Headers
or the Public must be given the full
and thorough understanding that 1
did not at any time ask any of the
Witnesses in such cases to commit
such act, or in other words, to obtain
such evidences in the method as un
dertaken by Iheni, They did it of
their own volition.
And I would further wish to an
nounce that long bufore such valued
advice given me by His Honor,
had already given official instrue

Two Brothers Battle to
One of the bloodiest- battles ever
fought on Maui between two men
occurred Friday night in the candy
store of Jinsaburo Kawahara and at
the end of which he was left fatally
stabbed in the abdomen and twice
in the arm, his wife Sada was
seriously stabbed twice in the hip
while the brother of the dead man
was slightly wounded by a skin cut
on theforchcad and breast.
It was about half past eight
clock in the evening thatTorokichi
tinsmith of Market street called
it the store of his brother for the
purpose it is claimed of collecting
lis share of rent due on a building
in which lie and his brother are said
to be equal partners.
The brothers have not been on
friendly terms for some years, owing
to the fact, so the Japanese colony
ay, of trouble caused by thu wife of
the defendant. Bo that as in may
the two brothers have been enemies
Shortly after the brothers met at
the store a cry for help was heard
uid Sada, the wife of the murdered
man was found at the steps of the
house of Hata. A little girl ran to
Miguel Paresa and told him of a
desperate struggle going on. He ran
oward the store and met Torakichi
-mining away. He grabbed the man
and held him until Sam Kaiapa, a
new police officer came up when he
gave the man over to the keeping of
the officer. Paresa then grabbed
mother Jap whom lie saw running
ind turned him over to the officer.
The first Jap who is now charged
with murder in the first degree broke
iv way from the officer anil ran up
Vineyard street just as -Paresa came
back. Paresa gave chase and over
took the man and brought him back
to the officer who then held him
In the store the owner was found
IviiiLE on the floor fatally stabbed
while blood was all over the floor
and walls and even on the show
ise. There was here every indica
tion of a desperate struggle. .
Comity Attorney Case was called
and goihg to the scene took the
dying statement of the wounded
man and took the statements of
No weapon of any kind was found
on either of the inch nor near the
place until a vacant lot was search
ed by the offcers and a bloody knife
The wounded man was taken to
the hospital and every effort made
to save him but hcliedat 10 o'clock
a. in. Sunday and. was buried Mon
day afternoon. the funeral was
very largely attended.
Jinsaburo Kawahara is hem in
jail under a charge of murder in the
first decree. Judge Kepoikai has
been retained to defend him.

Business Men Angry At
There was much disappointment
Saturday when it was learned that
the Alameda failed to get into Hono
lulu in time- to have the mail from
the Coast sent out on either the
Mauna Loa or the Claudine but it
was confidently expected that the
mail would be shipped here- on some
boat leaving Sunday or Monday but
when it was announced that the
steamer Likelikc was in port at
Kahului harbor Tuesday morning
and had no maif those responsible
for the non arrival of the mail were
criticised severely. '
The Claudine went down Tues
day and in consequence no answers
to any of the Alameda mail can be
made before the 20th of this month
on the Asia.
Many letters of protest were sent
to Honolulu, the following being a

Tames A. Kennedy Esq.

gation Co. Honolulu, Oahu.
In behalf of the Union Oil Com
pany, l wish to express me disap
pointment and inconvenience we
were subjected to this morning in
not receiving important mail which
wafc forwarded on the Alameda. I
vm aware that the Alameda arrived
too late to connect with the Clau
dine, but was given to understand
the Post Office authorities here
that the Likelikc would be dlspatch-
d witli freight for Kahului either
Sunday or Monday night and would
(i bring the Alameda mail. As
the correspondence referred to re
quires an immediate answer, which
could have been forwarded by the
Ylameda leaving Honolulu tomorrow
if the Likelikc had brought the mail
here, our Company will be put to
unnecessary expense, as it will now
Ik) necessary for me to cable to them
my answer, since there will be no
other mail leaving for the Coast
until the 20th.
We are entirely dependent upon
your company for prompt service in
the matter of mails, and I feel that
I am entirely justified "in making
formal complaint of this needless
delay anil expense to which we are
put, due to the seemingly inexcus
able failure of your service to carry
the mail promptly.
