By order of the Governor,
JOHN W. JONES.
The Adjutant General.
Supervising Principal King and Others
Alleged to Have Conspired fo Defraud.
A rather sensational" suit was filed
last week, in the form of a bill for
specific performance, in which Chas. j
. King, the supervising princiml
Y West Hawaii, his wife, Jeanne '
B. King, and one John Umuiwi are
lleged to have conspired together
to defraud a minor of certain land.
The plaintiff, Kahuakainni Umu-
wi, has filled her bill through her
guardian, William Kamalau. She
sets forth in her bill of complaint
that on Feb. -6, HMX4, she was the
holder, by ,her guardian, of a free
hold agreement for a certain lot at
Olaa, having an area of 11.38 acres,
and that on that day, on the advise
the Land Commissioner, after
she had through her guardian, per
formed all the conditions to obtain
patent, she made an agreement
with John Umuiwi whereby he un
dertook that, in the event of his
getting a patent to the lot, he would
convey to her one half of the lot.
It is further alleged that by virtue
of the transfer Umuiwi obtained a
patent for the lot on May 22, 1906,
and that he has ever since held the
at in fee simple, but that he has
refused to convry half of the lot to
The' complaint thi n goes on as
Your oratrix further showeth
unto your honor that she is inform
ed, and from such, information lie-
ieves it to lie true, that John Umu
iwi, V. i. King and Jeanne ti.
King are conspiring together fo de
fraud your oratrix in the premises,
and that said C. E. King and
Jeanne B. King - fraudulently claim
certain title to the said land by
virtue of a certain' instrument in
writing unknowu to your oratrix,
supposed to have Is en exeirted by
the said John Umuiwi; that said C.
King and said Jeanne B. King,
actuated by a desire to obtain title
in fee. to the aforesaid lot No. 51,
although knowing about the agree
ment between John Umuiwi and
William Kamalu to convey half of
said lot No. 51, to said Kahuakai-
nui Umuiwi, as fully appears in the
copy Hereto attached and made
a part hereof, they, the said C. E.
King, Jeanne B. King and John
Umuiwi, have fraudulently con
spired to defraud your oratrix of
her title and claim to the said lot
No. 51, and your oratrix believes
that they, the said C, E. King
(etc.) intend to deny that she, the
said. Kahuakainui Umuiwi, has any
claim in and unto the said lot No.
51, and that said John Umuiwi,
have sold to them, the said C. E.
King and Jeanne B. King, and
therefore neither Kahuakainui
Umuiwi or John Umuiwi have any
interest in the aforesaid lot No. 51,
but that the title to said premises
art in them, the said C. E. King
and Jeanne B. King."
The oratrix goes on to show that
the lot has yielded an annual rental
of $180 since June 1, 1906, that
John Umuiwi lias never accounted
for shy of the rents, and that the
half of the lot is reasonably worth
She also avers that bv resaons of
the breacfi of covenant on the part of
Umuiwi, and the "breach and con
spiracy" by the Kings and Umuiwi
to defraud her, and because of the
failure of John Umuiwi to specificab
ly perform, she has suffered dam
ages to the sum of $1000.
The plaintiff asks that John Umtt
iwi be ordered to convey to her one
half of the lot, and that he account
to her for all the rents collected
thereen,that the Kings' claim to the
lot le declared void, and that all
three defendants be ordered to pay
$1000 damages. Hilo Tribune.

Racing With Johnson.
Barney Oldffeld, whose nuto race
with Jack Johnson resulted in his
disqualification by the American
Automobile AssocTation, unsuccess
fully attempted to force the Atlanta
Association to permit him to race
in their meet on NoveniU-r 3.
Attorneys for the American Auto-
mobile Awociation held that instead
of an injunction to force the local
racing otlicials to allow him ti race
in defiance of his disqualification by
the American Automobile Associa-
tn, Oldfield should have sought a
mandamus to secure a reinstate
ment. Oldfield's attorneys brought suit
for $20,000 damages against the
American Association and one for
$.7,(XX) against the Atlanta Associa
tion. They claimed that he had
Ix-en disqualified by the American
Automobile Association "without a
hearing, and that a disqualification
of his Benz racer amounted to a
confiscation of property. The at
torneys argued that his ' race with
Jack Johnson was justifiable because
it would tend to discourage him from
future competition with white
sportsmen. . 1 .
The opposition counsel replied
that Oldfield's disbarment was auto
matic under the rules he himself
had signed. ' '
Judge Bell, after three hours and
15 minutes argument, ruled that he
had no jurisdiction.
