Court Holds Fish
Don't GoWith Pond
Famous Molokai Fish Pond Case
Passed on By Supreme Court De
cision liaises New Questions.
What's fish pasture worth?
This Is a question which Attorney
Dan Case is trying to have answered,
because on behalf of n client he will
probably soon ho putting in a bill
against Attorney Eugene Murphy for
a goodly sum for the caro of Mur
phy's finny property In a certain pond
on Molokai. It Is the famous fish
pond caso again.
Tho question has been brought up
through a supremo court decision,
rendered this week, In which the
court apparently holds that when a
man sells a fish pond he doesn't nec
essarily sell tho fish that may be In It.
About six mouths ago a Japanese
named Kanaynma bought at sheriff's
sale the lease on the fish pond In
question, only to bo sued a little later
for damages because he had taken
fish from the pond. Tho suit was
filed by Murphy, attorney for Akuto
gawa, tho Jnpaneso who had previous
ly owned the lease, and who had giv
en hie attorney a bill of sale on the
fish in tho pond.
In the district magistrate's court,
judgment was rendered against Mur
phy, but on his appeal to tiio supreme
court, this Is reversed. The syllabus
of tho opinion of tho higher court
read: "Tho judgment Is reversed and
the cause remanded to tho district
magistrate of Molokai with instruc
tions to enter judgment in favor of
the plaintiff for the sum of ?75 and
The question is now whnt Murphy
purposes doing to get his fish, which
presumably aro trespassing In Ihe
pond, and a'.so what bill for pasture
tho owner of tho pond can collect for
caring for them all this time. And
tho end is not yet.
Molokai Again Wins
In Singing Contest
Great Inter-Island Competition Due of
Chief Features of Evangelical Con
ference. For the second time In succession
Molokai lias won the Kate Atherton
banner In the big Inter-Island song
contest, which is one of the features
of tho annu.il Hawaiian Evangelical
Conference. The Molokai chorus won
the banner at the Maul conference for
tho first time last year, taking It from
Hawaii, which had held It for the two
previous years. The contest too
placo last Monday night In the Opera
House, in Honolulu, In the presence
of a very largo audience.
When Mrs. W. F. Frear, as chief
of the judges, made" tho announcement
of tho award and presented tho banner
to Leader Kalaau tho packed house
burst into tumultuous applause. It
had been generally believed through
out tho house after the contest that
Molokai would he given tho award nnd
accordingly tho decision was the more
popular. Besides Mrs. Frear, the jud
ges were Miss L. K. Aholo, Arthur
Hudson, Miss Agnes Judd and Rev. L.
Conditions of Contest.
The 'conditions of the contest were
the compulsory singing of one song,
"The Shadows of tho Evening Hours"
and of another song to bo selected or
composed by tho competing choir, the
words taken from some standard liter
ary collection. Tho judges made their
awards on tho following points ap
propriateness and melody of selection,
attack and ending, tempo and spirit,
enunciation, expression and shading
and their decision in favor of Molo
kai was unanimous.
Under tho leadership of Mr. Kalaau
this organization sang with the eifect
of a big pipe organ. The expression
shading was remarkable and both of
Its selections were well suited to tho
voices. Oahu had greater volume but
not tho timbre. Tho Hawaii chorus
and that of Kauai made good show
ings but did not approach Molokai
A pretty feature was an added num
ber of the program when the Molokai
chorus, while tho judges were making
their selection sang a selection undor
the direction of Solomon K. Fu'ler,
former leader of the organization. Tho
applauso was so long and vociferous
that tho chorus was compelled to en
core. Incidentally, Guiseppo Creatore
has nothing on Fuller when it comes
ot eccentricity of baton waving,
Some Parts of Maui

Board Was Unfair
Former Molokai District Overseer
Says Had No Opportunity to De
fend Himself Against False Charge.
11. R. Hitchcock, late district over
seer for Molokai, who was refused re
appointment by the board of supervi
sors at Its last mooting, on recommen
dation of an investigation committee,
claims that lie was treated unfairly
in not being permitted to appear be
fore the board and present his de
fense to tho charges made against
him. in the following letter to the
Maul News ho gives his version of the
charge that he used county mules for
his own work. Ho says:
Editor Maul News:
Tho report, supposed to bo Impar
tial, of tho committee, consisting lot
Drummond and Pall, sent to Molokai
to look into tho charges made against
me as district overseer, had several
charges on which they made their re
port. Tho first and last are all that
need to bo referred to here.
As you have tho report, I will not
bother to quote, but say that every
thing in section 1 is false, and was
never brought to my attention by the
committee, whllo on Molokni. I first
knew of It while In Wailuku on tho
12th Inst, and secured a copy of tho
report. Tho last charge, that of us
ing county property for my own pri
vate use, whether by authority or not,
was fully explained to the committee
over here, by Supervisor Meyer, undor
whose instructions, and the rush order
of tho County Engineer, to do certain
work at once; said work being to haul
the lumber for Nlheu and Kaluanui
bridges, a haul of nine miles over
a very steep grade.
The county has four mules over
here, and when the order was received
one was at tho lower end of the is
land, on much needed repair work.
Supervisor Meyer ordered me to
loan a California mule to fill out the
four-mule team and got tho lumber
up at once. I also received written
instructions from tho board of super
visors, dated March 12, to hire out
side teams for county work. My mulo
worked eight days for the county, and
later, when the county mules were
not busy, I took back tho eight days'
work. I was told by tho investigating
committee, after this explanation had
been made, that there was no need of
my going to Wailuku to go before the
full board. I relied on that statement,
and who now is guilty of bid faith
and Intentionally "loudlng tho issue,
I leave to tho public" to decide.
My statement to the board on July
12th, at their request, when they lound
I was In Wailuku, If it cou'.d havo
been given v'jc;n the report was made
would have settled the whole thing,
but the committee did not want me
to bo heard, which Is plainly shown
by the stand taken by Pall, tho Mon
day, July 12, that I gave my sido of

Maui Japanese Maid
In Love With Indian
Follows Chief Hailstorm to Hilo, Ac
cording to Hilo Police Fascinator
Not Aware of Heart Havoc.
Romance, unknown to tho purser or
other passengers, was a passenger on
tho Mauna Kea on last Wednesday's
voyage. Only tho little winged god,
tho piercer of hearts, know he had
shot his dart and started Romance on
a voynge to Hilo.
Cupid's aim was true when he
sighted his arrow at pretty little fourteen-year-old
Umo Sakagama of Wai
luku, Maui, as comely as sho is young,
but his arrow failed to penetrate the
heart of Chief Hailstorm whom he had
selected as his second victim.
That Romance captained by Cupid
had designed the union of a daughter
of tho Orient with a native American
would not havo been known if it were
not for the objection of the misses'
parents and the intereference of the
By the last mall camo a request to
Deputy Sheriff Martin from the Maui
authorities to locate the girl. Almost
concurrently there appeared at tho
police station a Japanese youlh from
Mnui, who said he suspected that he
might bo accused of luring the girl
here from her home. Ho denied ny
such Intentions and declared that it
was tho girl's infatuation for tho In
dian chief with his brilliant war paint
and feathers which had caused her to
run away from home. Not even he
had suspicioncd her reasons for com
ing here until ho accidentally learned
of her Infatuation for tho Indian. The
Japanese youth told tho police where
the girl could bo found. Sho was
staying with some Japanese friends.
The police investigated tho boy's
story and closely questioned tho girl.
They learned that Romance and Cupid
while leading her from home had also
protected her from harm. Chief Hail
storm does not even know the girl or
of her lovo for him, the police say.
She was returned to her home In Maul
last night Hilo Tribune.
The local police are not at all cer
tain that the Indian had anything to
do with tho girl's trip to Hilo. They
are inclined to believe that a man of
her ovn natlona'ity was tho real rea
son. The girl herself told the police
upon her return that, she wants to be
a teacher, and wanted to attend the
summer school In Honolulu: that it
was Impossible to go direct to Hono
lulu owing to opposition of her family,
f.o she had attempted to throw them
off the track by going by way of

Boat's Crew Drunk
Claims Booze Had Part in Lahaina
Tragedy Only One of Crew Tried
to Save Passengers.
HONOLULU, July 20. Three wit
nesses testified yesterday at a hearing
of tho public utilities commission that
the Inter-Island accident at Lahaina
In which two deck passengers were
drowned on the night of May 1 was
chargeable to the drunkenness of tho
boat's crow. Air. and Mrs. John Saf
frey and Kato Akiau, all Hawallans,
were tho witnesses.
The crew also was composed of Ha
wallans and the witnesses based their
Judgment on the boisterous scraps of
conversation In Hawaiian they over
heard, although they had not seen the
Evidence which had not been
brought before tho commission yet,
but which is current gossip on tho
beach at Lahaina, runs to tho samo
effect. It might be difficult to reduce
this gossip to testimony that would
stand tho scrutiny of a responsible
board, but tho talk there is that a
number of the boatmen, Including tho
steorman of the second boat, which
was capsized, were drunk when they
landed, even after the sobering efftct
of their fright and tho swim to uhoro.
Only One Attempted Rescue.
There wero four oarsmen nnd one
steersman In the capsized boat. Only
the steersman made any attempt to
