horseman in Honolulu, will also be

The Hoard of Supervisors of Maui
County at its last regular meeting
voted the sum of 1500 forhe clean
ing and beautifying of the new pub
lie park in Wailuku; which adjoins
the Knhului Railroad Co'h depot.
Supervisor T. 15. Lyons and road

good deal of interest in the work
and tho people of Wailuku feel cer
tain these gentlemen will do the
right thing by them and rush to
completion a much needed recrea

A force of men are already at

Tho gwmdstand will be erected in
tho mauka Wnikapu .corner of the
grounds, which will not only bo of
benefit to the 'players themselves,
but will also leave the other portion
of ,tlie grounds clear for all other
gaiiics that the public may indulge
It is understood that a tennis
court will be layed out and the lov
ers -of that gamo, who are quite
numerous, in Wailuku, will no doubt
keep the same in constant-use.
'If the present plans are carried
out, Wailuku will have reason to
boast of the largest and finest play
grounds in the Territory and after
trees and grass are planted, and
growing thero will bo nowhere a
bettor place for open air exercise.
Not alone will the lovers of base
ball and tennis and other sports bo
benefitted. Road Overseer Bnl will
have a 30-foot wide oiled road built
around the park, and autoists will
also have the pleasure of running
their machines on the fine roads,
and there will, no doubt, be quite a
bit of scorching done.
Like all other parks the world
over, ours should bavo a name, and
already there are several names
suggested, Among tho most prom
inent of them is that of. Lyons'

Accused Man Is Ably "De
Attorney M. F. Prosser-, of tho
Honolulu law firm with a multipi
cilv of names, came up Saturday
and Monday appeared in court as
attorney for Kawano, a Japanese
merchant of liana.
Tho defendant is charged with
having committed perjury in the
circuit court some months ago and
is one-of the men wlio was ordered
committed by Judge Kingsbury to
appear before the grand jury .which
body returned .a true bill of indict-
"incnt ngninst him? , - -
The trial has occupied most of the
week and is one 'of the most hotly
contested cases- fought out 'in this
The first move was to have Judge
Kingsbury disqualified, on the
ground of prejudice and to this end
an affidavit aviis made by attorney
A. O. Correa and filed in court. The
next m.ove was to subpoena Judge
Kingsbury as a witness."
The defense seems to be based on
the theory that the Japanese inter
preter N. K; Otsuka did not cor
rectly interpret tho testimony of the
defendant at the time he is alleged
to have committed perjury. Judge
A. N. -Kopoikai was one of tjie wit
nesses called for the ;defendanl. His
testimony related to a statement
Judge Kingsbury is said to have
made to Otsuka touching on. the
lack of confidence the- court had in-
Mr. Otsuka as air.interpretej-. The'
testimony however seemed nfore
favorable to the prosecution than to

several hundred thousand men and

religious life of the communities in
which they dwell; as a slight inves
tigation iiv almost any. large city in
the country will show. If it nlso
contains some who misunderstand
its teachings and fail to follow its
precepts, it does not in this respect
differ from any other Christian
sect. The strugglo to eliininn'tefrom
its membership a portion of these
gave rise to the discord in the New
York Church, which has been great

(.sensational' and sometimes hostile
press, which with a fraction of the

have found thousands of examples
of beautiful lives, and of tbe rescue-
of unhappy men nnd women from
the bonds of sin and disease by the
true adherents of Christian Science.
