r Saves His Neck
John Ginza, Confessed Murderer, Is
Allowed To Plead Guitiy To Sec
ond Degree Murder Insanity De
fense Is Feared
To clear the criminal calendar of
the circuit court. It was necessary to
have only two Jury trials, and one of
these was an appeal case from the dis
trict court. Most of the defendants
plead guilty, among whom was John
Ginza, the confessed slayer of George
Cooper of liana.
Attorney Murphy was appointed as
counsel for the Japanese, and he "of
fered to have his client enter a plea
of murder in the second degree.
County Attorney Bevins agreed to ac
cept this plea, which was done. Al
most immediately Judge Edings sen
tenced Ginza to life imprisonment in
the Oahu prison. Ginza was taken
to Honollu to begin serving his sen
the following day.
The acceptance of a plea of second
degree murder was something of a
surprise, as it whs thought that the
county attorney would refuse to ac
cept it. Also, some believed that
Ginza's attorney would make an in
sanity defense. It was partly on ac
count of the belief that it would be
Impossible to secure a conviction of
first degree murder, that Ginza was
allowed to plead guilty to a lesser
charge, it is said. The physicians
who examined Ginza, it was thought,
would have testified that it was pos
sible his brain had been effected when
he was a child by a hard fall. The
Japanese has a large cavity in his
forehead as the result of the fall.
Ginza killed the Hana bookkeeper
a little over a month ago after lying
in wait for him all night. His mo
tive was a five year old grudge over
a small sum of money of which he
thought he had been, defrauded.
Francis B. White, an American of
Dutch decent, who before his arrest
for passing forged writing posed aa a
federal inspector of hulls and boilers,
plead guilty and was sentenced to six
months imprisonment and to pay a
fine of twenty dollars.
Julio Santos and Antone Garcia, a
Spaniard and Porto Rican, who had a
knife and razor fight, were both fined
fifty dollars, after pleading guilty to
The first criminal jury trial was of
Frank Mendes, a Filipino indicted for
having sexual intercourse with a Pu
unene Portuguese girl under fifteen
years of age. The trial occupied most
of Monday, during which one of the
small sensations was the reading of a
letter which the mother had written
to the defendant. The Filipino was
found guilty and sentenced to not less
than three years imprisonment.
In the appeal case of Ten York,
charged with having opium in his pos
session, the appeal was dismissed and
the fine of $100 upheld.

Hawaii As New
York Knows It
Things Hawaiian as Interpreted by
New York show producers is typical
ly evidenced in a program of the
Empire theatre of that city, which has
recently been sent to J. Garcia, by a
friend who is visiting the metropolis.
In the fifteenth scene of a musical
comedy show it is claimed that the
set" is to represent "Wakaki, Ha
waii." Some of the music numbers are
ns wonderful as is this new spelling of
Waikiki. Among these are the fol
lowing: "Hulu Hulu Dancers, A Ha
waiian Hans, Wakaki Billie, Vi'.alai
Luke and Dancing to a Ukalali Band."
That "Vilalai Luke" ought to be al
most as wonderful a treat for the
people of the metropolis as is the

Characteristic Party Talks To At

mond's Defeat Urged By Speakers
While there were no great outbursts
of enthusiasm, even when Frince Ku
hio was speaking, the attendance at
the Republican rally held In the val
ley Isle theatre last Tuesday night
was large, and an attentive interest
in the words of the speakers was
shown. Prince Kuhio, W. O. Smith
and R. W, Breckons were the speak
ers. On the platform during the meet.
ing were all of the Maui candidates
They were the candidates for election
as senator Harry Baldwin and George
Cooke, and the representative candi
dates, Waiohole, Brown, Joseph,
Walsh, Paschoal and Tavares.
A touch of oratory was added to the
meeting by the introductory remarks
of W. R. Crockett, who acted as chair
man. Charles Wilcox was Hawaiian
interpreter for the English speakers.
None of the local candidates made
talks, altough it was announced that
they would address a Wailuku meeting
before the campaign was over.
Smith was the first speaker and he
devoted himself to advising that the
islands continue to elect members of
the party which has always stood for"
a high protective tariff for sugar
upon which, he said, the industrial
life of Hawaii depended. He made it
a point, he said, of wanting protect-
tion carried to such an extent that
even the small Industries would be
given protection, so they could be dev
eloped. Smith declared it wrong to
believe the sugar tariff was only for
the good of the sugar plantation men,
"It effects you and everyone of us," he
Attorney Breckons awoke interest
by telling the crowd a story or two and
by cutting analogies regarding the De.
mocratic party and its policies.
"Thank God For Wilson," was his
battle cry, which he cailed a text. He
admitted that he had taken the text
from the Democratic speakers on O
ahu, but that his interpretation of it
was quite different. He referred to
the policy of the United Staes in Mexl
mo and the Lusitania sinking with a

Is Granted Today
At a session of the Maui Liquor
License Commissioners today in the
Town Hall, the transfer of the Ah Nim
restaurant license at Waihei to Ah Hu
was approved, after a hearing. This
was after an agreement had been
reached between W. R. Crocket, ad
ministrator of the Ah Nim estate, who
also applied for a transfer. Ah Hu's
aDnlicatlon was for another license. !
The agreement between the administr
ator and Ah Hu is understood to have
been the payment of $170 to the estate
for the liquor now in stock.
The Grand Hotel made application
for the privilege of keeping an ice
chest with beer on the lawn of tho
hotel, from which customers could be
served at the tables In the yard. The
commissioners frowned upon the ap
plication, making it plain they did not
favor serving liquor away from the
hotel building. The Grand Hoto! then
withdrew its application, before the
request was voted upon.

hers. D. H. Case represented the wid
