iTwo Criminal Cases Take
r -r Much Time,
The March rbrm of the
court of this circuit came to
on the 20th instant.
The two cases thut required the
.' greatest time for trial were the JCu
- wahara murder casc.and the Kawano
. On Tuesday, the last day of the
'term four Philipino boys plead guilty
J to Inirglnry. .Owihg to their Hge
sentence was suspended and they
. were. put in charge of attorney D.
V: Burchard who has since placed
them in care of local families.
Francis Armstrong of the barque
" Alexander Black and R. W. Howell
were each sentenced to one years
imprisonment; for burglary. They
"Dang Nam was before the court
for burglary. 1J is the defendant
who was "recently defended by at
-'lorney Douthitt before District Mag-
- istrato' McKay and about whom sen
; sational articles appeared in the
- Honolulu papers.
Judgo "Kepoikai was appointed to
appear for and- defend t'ie man.
Judge Kepoikai asked for- further
titno.as ho had not.had time to pre
pare for the defense. Judgo Kings
bury insisted. Judge Kepoikai ask
ed to withdraw. Attorney Vivas
. V. was then asked to. take the case. He
?' declined on the- same ground that
i,'1 Judge Kepoikai had done. Mr.
? 'Crockett was finally appointed but
asthc was not present at the time
tile case was called Mr. Prosser was
substituted. The defendant was
tried, found guilty and sentenced to
inprisonmcnt in short order. Ortres,
whose face would pass muster at any
states'prison without question was
" . handed his. The record of both of
the latter is" said to be exceedingly
:. .- bad.
.On Tuesday and Wednesday of
this week Ed. Fernandez, the mov
inc picture man, showed at the
Wailuku Town Hall, and on both
nights had crowded houses. On
Thursday evening he performed at
Wnikapu and the people of that
locality were highly pleased.
Next Monday evening he will
' perform at Kahului at which place
olectricity will be used and the
spectators will be able to see the
pictures under the best conditions.
Fernandez' film of the last floral
parade is a very interesting ono as
are also those of tho volcano and
of the marathon race.
Another film of great interestjs
that of the Passion play, in colors.
This is a lengthy film and gives
the complete history of tho life of
Christ, from his birth to his death.
Ho also has some very comical
pictures which keep tho audience
roaring with laughter from start to
Mr. Fernandez will give several
shows in Puuneno and Paia and
perhaps in. tho upper country dis
tricts, tho dates of which will be
announcee later. He lias intro
duced on Maui a"novel way of ad
vertising, using large box kites,
which hold up in the air a large
-banner announcing the date cn 1115

know when he is in your locality.

In tho opinion of this grand jury
Mr. II. M. Coko acted indiscreetly
in referring the above matter to
counsel for the defense , in tho case;

bringing the matter to the attention
of the Court. This we leave to the
discression of the Court.

that no harsh methods have been

of Judge L K. Kakani inprocees of
construction in liana for nearly two
months past was totally destroyed
by lire about 8 o'clock p. m. Friday
evening, tho 22nd.
Tlie structure was being erected
on the tract of land lying between
and near tlie junction of the two
roads leading from Dr. Deas' resi
dence into liana, and excited much
favorable comment not only for its
picturesque appearance and the
added tone it gave the locality, but
for the enterprise displayed in its
Work on tlie new homo had ad
vanced so far toward the completion
that the Judgo and his family were
nightly occupying it as a precaution
ary .measure against accident, 'this
precaution however, was neglected
on tho fatal night of tho fire. In
the late afternoon of that day after
the carpenters had ,gone home,
Judgo and Mrs. Kakani saw that all
was in order in and out of tho build
ing, and, taking their children left
for the homo of their parents, a
scant quarter of a mile .away, yet
totally hidden from view by rising
ground and, intervening trees. When
they again returned a few hours
later at the hasty summons of friends
to the site of their home, it was a
mass of flaming ruins.
Earlier the same evening'a young
man passed by tho vacant building
heard some ono moving in the
brush in the vicinity; a little later,
a policeman driving by saw a light
reflected on the inner wall of the
dining room, but, thinking that the
Judge was on guard as usual did
not investigate the cause of it; at
the same time parties living at the
sea bcacn'- a Halt mile away wore
able to see an unusual light in tlie
house through an open door and
hallway opening on the opposite
side of the house, but noticing that
tho person who was driving by in
lighted conveyanco not forty feet
from the house found no cause for
pause or apparent alarm they con
eluded that the Judge not yet hav-
iiig" instated liis stove had built an
impromptu camp fire on tho floor
for the purpose of cooking supper
and that, there "was no cause for
alarm on their part, and thereupon
centered their own houso and re
sumed their evening occupation;
when they again looked out their
door tho building on the hill was
wrapt in flames.
Much valuable material as well as
the carpenters' tools were consumed
in tho fire. No insurance
When tho fact became known
generally in tho village that the
Judge's now homo wa"s on fire many
willing hands rushed to tho rescue
but all too lato to save. Tho deep
