Asks Supreme Court to Investigate Claims Court
Funds Used For Private Debts Judge Says Malice
Cause of Attack Says He is Ready to Quit.
' As reported briefly by wireless
from Honolulu on Wednesday,
charges were filed with the supreme
court on Tuesday of this week,
against Judge SeldenB. Kingsbury,
of the Second Circuit Court, and
the higher tribunal asked to inves
tigate them. This will all likelihood
Attorney Eugene Murphy is re
sponsible for several complaints of
a serious character, while Deputy
County Attorney, Euos Vincent,
sought to secure a writ of man
damus to compel Judge Kingsbury
to issue a mitimus for the incarce
ration of Mary Ann Peter, sen
tenced to serve 60 days in jail at a
previous term of court. In the latter
matter the attorney general wire
lessed Judge Kingsbury inquiring
why the mittimus was not issued,
and received a reply that it had
Murphy's charges arc that Judge
Kingsbury drew upon court funds
to pay his own private expenses in
connection with a habeas corpus
preceding before the supreme
court last September. Murphy
shows that $50 was paid to Holmes,
Stanley & Olson to represent him
in this matter.
Other charges made by Murphy
arc in connection with this same
case of Lucy Akiona Ah Sam,
whose husband was trying by
habeas corpus procedings to secure
possession of his girl wife, who
apparently did not wish to live
with him. Judge Kingsbury, accord
ing tothe records, made oath that he
was not "in any manner concerned
in any removal of the said Lucy
Akiona Ah Sam from her home,
and denies that he had anything
whatever to do with her leaving or
being removed, or goingaway from
the home of said Ah Sam." The
affidavit, which denies that Judge
Kingsbury had anything whatever
to do with Ah Sam case, further
denies that he "as judge ever made
any order or took anv action what
ever regarding the separationof the
said Lucy Akiona Ah Sam from
her alleged husband."
Murphy submitted an affidavit
The bid of A. A. Wilson of $5900
for completing the Kilici wharf was
accepted by the board of Harbor
commissioners last Tuesday, and it
is understood that work will be
started at onoe. It is estimated that
it will bo completed within two
months. E. C. Merrill was appoint
ed as the board's inspector on the
job. The Inter-Island company has
notified the public that it will no
longer mako use of the landing at
McGregors, which it deems unsafe,
and the board voted $50 for having
repairs made on this structure.
Dan Crawford's Lecture
A large crowd attended the- lecturo
of Dan Crawford, missionary, at
I'aia, last Tuesday evening. Tho
collection amounted to $130.
of Sister Helen, of the Malulani
Hospital to the effect that she cared
for the Chinese girl at the hospital
under belief that she was doing so
by order of the court, and that she
prevented comunication of the girl
with outsiders under understood
direction of Judge Kingsbury.
Murphy also filed copies df a court
demand against the county trea
surer for expenses of auto trip in
connection with this case.
Judge Kingsbury, when asked
about the charges, denied them all
generally. He declared that the at
tack upon him is inspired by
malice. In the matter of the mit
timus, he stated that he had not
refused to issue it but was delaying
in order to satisfy himself as to
certain points, and that he had, as
a matter of fact, issued it before the
deputy county attorney had made
The judge declaree that in the
habeas corpus case, he deemed he
was within his province in charging
up his expenses to the court fund,
inasmuch as he was summoned to
Honolulu in the matter, not as an
individual, but in his official capa
city. He did not comment on the
matter of the apparent conflict of
affidavits relating to the facts in the
Ah Sam girl's case.
KINGSltUIiY READY TO STEP DOWN
Judge Kingsbury further stated
that he is not unwilling to make
way for a democrat of proper cali
ber, "in fact I shall be glad to
Ge relieved," he stated, "And
Governor Pinkham knows this.
But I have been particularly asked
not to leave the bench vacant be
fore my successor can be decided
upon. I hope to be able to leave
sometime in July or the first of
August. I have even recommended
two men of the democratic party,
cither of whom T believe would be
a credit to the position, if they
will accept it. Harry Irwin is one
and C. W. Ashford is the other.
But the democratic party disagree
among themselves and I don't know
when a decision will be made. A
man from the mainland may have
to be sent, and it will serve them
right if this is done.
ment Next Week
Tho sixth commencement of the
Maunaolu Seminary will bo held
next Wednesday, the 17th, at 10
o'clock in the morning. An interest
ing program has been arranged for
the occasion, and there will probably
be a largo attendance of friends of
tho 10 young lady graduates.
Tho graduates ofacadcmicdcpart
ment; arc Dora Kaiamoku, Emily
Kcapo, AhLungLau, Julia Mattson,
Eva Saffrcy, Ah Yim Soong, Helen
Taylor, Enkyau Yap.
Sewing Department Mary An-
dradc, Paulino Railoy.
Good Season for Kaeleku
The Kaeleku Sugar company will
finish grinding probably within tho
next month. The yield for tho sea'
son will probably bo in the neighbor
hood of G000 tons. Tho season has
been a very good ono for this plan
tation as far as output is concerned
Positively denying tho rumor that
tho All Service Baseball team will
not play on Maui on the Fourth,
Manager Edwin J. O'llara, has
written to J. Garcia, as follows:
"There is absolutely no truth in the
statement that the All Service Team
is to play in Honolulu on July 4th.
We arc all ready and anxious to
visit Maui on that date."
This is good news to tho local
fans, who had been rather down in
the month over the apparent failure
of plans to mature. Although it is
not certain, there still seems to be
a good chance of getting a game or
two with the University of California
team, if the matter is pushed. The
college boys began their series in
Honolulu on Thursday, and have 8
games scheduled. Saturday, Juno
27, and Sunday, June 2S, however,
ire open dates, and as they do not
play on tnc 2Gth, it should bo pos
sible for the team to bo on Maui
those two days with little loss of time.
LAST SUNDAY'S GAM US
STANDING OF TEAMS.
Played W. L
C. A. C.
Last Sunday's game, in which
the C. A. Cs won from the Puunene
team by a score of 9 to S, was re
markable in a number of ways, and
was much appreciated by the crowd .
A triple play in the 7th inning,
mado by tho Chinese was one of the
prettiest ever seen on tho local dia
mond. Kama in center, made a
wonderful catch of a hot fly by Bald
win, passing it to Chuck, on 2nd,
who put out Carreira, and then
threw to Enos, at 3rd, who caught
Miranda napping. For flagrantly
pushing the second baseman from
his position, Kaleo, for tho Puu
ncnes was unsparingly hooted by
the crowd possibly the first time
that such a demonstration ever oc
curred against a player on tho Wai
luku diamond. When tho samo
player was put out at second, a
short time later, tho play wasround-
ly applauded. Batteries Puunene:
Scholtz and Clement; C. A. C: Al
Sue and Aki. Ah Sue was batted
out of tho box in tho Gth, and was
replaced by Okamura, who finished
the game with no hits against him.
The Gyms won from C. A. C. Jr.
in a very good game, S to 4. The
C. A. Cs 4 runs were all made in
the Sth framo. Hanson and A.
Pombo, battery for Gyms., Chong
and Alfred for C. A. Cs.
The tie between the Gyms, Cubs,
and C. A. C. Jrs. for first place in
tho first series will bo played off
tomorrow at 1:30 -o'clock. The
senior game will bo between Wai
luku and C. A. C, at 3:30 o'clock.
Can You Match This?
Ilymio Meyer, of Wailuku, has a
freak pullet which is laying eggs as
largo as gooso eggs. Last Tuesday
she laid an egg that weighed AXA
ounces. This egg measured G inches
around tho small way, and 8!$in.
tho large way. Tho day beforo, Mr.
Meyer says, the pullet laid an egg
about tho samo size, which was
found to contain three yolks. The
bird is a cros3 between Plymouth
Rock and Minorca, is but 9 months
old , and the two big eggs this week
were but her eighth and nincth.
The plebiscite campaign is mak
ing good headway, according to the
reports of tho leaders who arc work
ing for the proposed county bond
issue. Dr. Raymond, Hon. William
J. Cuelho, and several others who
went to Molokoi last week returned
on Monday, and the same day Sup
ervisors Ilenning and Kalama went
to Molokai and held a series of meet
ings, returning on Wednesday. All
report much interest in tho bond
proposition. Dr. Raymond states
that Representative Gcorgo P. Cooke
and James C. Munroc, manager of
the Molokai Ranch, are lending their
fullest support, and that the success
of the meetings on tho Island was
duo in large measure to their efforts.
There was no meeting in Wailuku
last Saturday night, as had been
announced, there having been some
hitch in gotting Attorney General
Stainback here, as had been
expected. It is not certain now
whether ov not Stainback will come
at all, but it is definitely known that
Secretary Wade Warren Thayer will
be hero next Saturday. A meeting
is bo arranged for next Saturday
night in Wailuku, and another in
Lahaina on the following Monday,
at-which the Secretary of the Ter
ritory will be the chief speaker.

C. D. Lufkin, who returned this
week from a several weeks trip to
the mainland, reports business con
ditions possibly somewhat better
than a few months ago. Southern
California is suffering severely from
the stringency. With the approach
of the harvest season a material
improvement is looked for. The

strength in most parts of the main
land. Mr. Lufkin's trip was primarily
