WAILUKU, MAULH. T.', SATURDAY, MAY 13, J 911
The Noblest Roman of Them All
Gathered to His Fathers.
The last sad rites over the re
mainB of Judge Kepoikai were said
Tucsday'aftcrnoon,and it was a large
and representative gathering which
marched to the gravo and paid tri
bute 'to the respected dead. The
services wero first held at the Church
of the Good Shepherd of which the
deceased was a member. When the
bearers entered the church and
rested the coffin in the chancel the
edifice was already filled to over
flowing. After the church services,
the masons, of which the late judge
was. a prominent member, took
chargo of the proceedings and pre
ceded the remains to the gravo.
All business in Wailuku and Ka
hului was suspended, and Haole
and Hawaiian both did homage to
the. departed dead. The services at
the gravo were impressive, ' espe
cially so when the masons gave the
grand honors to their dead brother.
Judge Auwae Noa Kepoikai was
born in Wailuku, December 17th,
1862. He was of pure Hawaiian
blood, and could trace his lineage
back beyond the days of, Karaeha
meha the Great.
Ho was educated in Wailuku and
at Lahainaluna und6r Prof. Hitch
cock. After graduating at Lahaina
luna he entered Oahu College, but
the demise of his aged father, cut
short his time at college, and he re
turned to Wailuku to face the world.
After leaving school he was em
ployed as a salesman at the Kahului
Store, and it was here he obtained
the foundation of his business edu
cation. Young Kepoikai was a stu
dent, however, and after much
study, he was admitted to the
Hawaiian bar by the Chief Justico
Judd in 1895.
His first entry into official life
was in 1886, when ho was appointed
police magistrate of Wailuku which
commission he held for many years.
In 1892jQueen Liliuokalani appoint
ed him circuit judge of Maui. He
continued to hold this important
position up to the timo of the over
throw. At that time he was an
ardent royalist, and when the pro
visional government was organized
he resigned. Kepoikai was succeeded
by Judge Kalua, but in 1904 ho
was again appointed to the position
by President Roosevelt, succeeding
the man who had previously suc

was one of five members appointed

several thousand claimants. Of the
original five members, Kepoikai was

Racy Paragraphs From the Capitol On
(By Oscar Brcnton.)
Honolulu, Tuesday, May 9, 1911.
When Abner Bixby's boy, John
ny, came back from collcgo in '83
he was full of now fangled ex
pressions as a, dog is of fleas. Abner
had a ranch back in Clay County,
Indiana, where ho raised steers for
the Kansas City cattle market. At
the particular timo of which I speak
the old man had added considerably
to his holdings in tho bank at Terra
Haute and he was feeling chesty.
The boy was making a mental sur
vey of the parlor furniture and fit
tings and chanced to observe that
tho tout ensemble did not- appeal to
him. "It don't, eh?" ventured the
old man with a pained expression
on his countenance "Well you show
me where that tootensemb is and
I'll have it dug up. That's about
the way the gathering of witnesses
in the Hilo scandal impressed me
as I Baw them in the, corridor wait
ing for a chanco to cough up before
the grand jury yesterday.
My intention to cut out any re
ference to tho Hilo affair was good
when I last wrote but as the Star
intimates that there will be no bill
found against any of the parties
concerned I want to enter a protest
against any more of the affairs of
the schools of the big island being
aired in public. In my opinion the
lingerie in the present case should
have been fumigated before sending
it to the school laundry for washing.
I am not quite sure that there was
more than circumstantial evidence
introduced and it was without the
backing necessary to make it worth
while. I agree with tho man who
says it is the best kind of evidence
'f it is right. But it is demmed bad
if it is not. On tho whole I would
not convict a Korean of chicken
stealing if it depended on such
stuff. , .
As to tho standing of tho. people
of Hilo as gossips I was in the office
of a newspaper tho other day and
heard a gentleman recounting an
experience he had had as a resident
of the place some years ago. Ho had
been, or was at tho time, quite ill
and a physician was called. As the
case was supposedly serious tho
doctor remained at his bedside for a
long time. At the end of an hour
a neighbor came in, accidentally of
course, and when she saw conditions
made inquiry and retired. The next
day tho neighbor called again and
at that time told the sick man's
wifo that neighbor next door had
told-her that a gentleman had .called
on Mrs. Blank, entered the bedroom
and remained an hour, and sho had
gone over the day before to confirm
or deny the rumor. You see tho
stranger who had entered the house
was no stranger but the family, phy
sician. The man whom tho gossip
said was there had never been in
the house. Now that is a sample
of Hilo gossip. Really a foundation
for a mighty unpleasant slander. I
know nothing of what was stated to
tho grand jury. I know what was
told the commissioners, and it did
not smell good. If thero was nothing
better told the jury it's no bill at
the end, and possibly an invitation
for the parties at interest to tender
their resignations as teachers in tho
public schools in tho Territory. I
understand tho affair lias caused
separation of tho tics which have
bound friends and neighbors in
Hilo for years. Tho substantial

In tho second round of what was
to have been a ten round bout
ho caught "One Round" Hogan of
California a terrific left swing to tho
jaw, followed by a heavy right to
tho wind, and instantly had Hogan
in distress. A moment more and
the lattor's friends threw uo tho
sponge. Quick to seo his advantage
when he had dazed Hogan, Wolgast
followed him up relentlessly. He
poured in a steady volley of right
and left swings to cither side of tho
jaw, rocking Hogan's head, beating
down his guard and driving him
helplessly around tho ring. Before
entering tjie ring, Hogan announced
that if he was beaten decisively , ho
would never fight again. Jn the
first round it seemed as if ho might
prove worthy of the title to liis
nickname of "One Round." Ho
found little difficulty in stabbing,

straight left and swinging to the'1'
jaw with a heavy right hand sween.

rocking and dazed against the ropes.
But Wolgast's wonderful powers of
recuperation came to his rescue. Ho
rallied, fought back again, and at

fresh as ever. Wolgast's whole fight

to take punishment for a chance to
