The matter of the death of a
Japanese child was submitted to
your grand jurors for investigation,
by being struck by an automobile.
'Hie same was taken up and, a
Searching and diligent examina
tion of the witnesses was made, as
well as a personal inspection of
the place where the child met her
death. From all of which, your
grand jurors have, come to a
definite conclusion that the child
came to her death accidentally.
We are also satisfied however,
that had the corner in the road mid
the hedges growing in the fence
or yard been cut down lower so as
to give a clear view of both ends of
tlip road where the accident
happened, the child would not
have met her cieatn.
We would also call the attention
of the court that, if all the roads of

Assault And Battery Case Results
In Hung Jury After A Short
SOME HAPPENINGS AT COURT
Challenge Brings Out Fact That
Juror Was Not A Citizen of
The grand jury wound up its
affairs at noon. At 2 p. m. court
opened, the first case being The
lerntory of Hawaii, vs: Pedro
Alsa, a Filipino, charged with as
sault and battery, the case being
an appeal Irom the Waimea Dis
trict Court. W.J. Sheldon is as
sisting County Attorney Kaeo in
the prosecution, while A. G. Ka
ulukou appears for defendant. In
the jury box areTheo. Blackstaad,
Wm. Kaiawe, Jno. II. Koani, F.
Deiuert, Joe Correa, Jr., J, P. Alo
hikea, Joe R. Teves, Enos Madei
ros, D. M. Kaheleiki, Alfred Rdd
gues, Frank Paclieco, W. II.
The jury was accepted and the
trial began at 2:30 p. in. the first
witness being the proprietor of
the store in which the alleged as
sult is said to have taken place.
The plaintiff, a fifteen year-old
Japanese girl was next. Her evi
dence was much the same as that
of the former witness, being to
the affect that defendant had at
tempted to take some flowers
from her hair and had struck her
when she remonstrated. She also
stated that defendant had annoyed
various little girls of the neigh
borhood in the same manner. A
third witness was called, but owing
to the lateness of the hour, court
adjourned until 9 a. m. Saturday.
The court took up the continued
case from Friday and by 11:30, the
case went to the jury, who after
some little deliberation, failed to
come to an agreement, thus caus
ing a mistrial. Court adjourned at
2 p. m. to meet on Monday morning
at 9 a. in.
The case of The Territory of
Hawaii vs. Augustine Reveira,
charged with niailicious burning,
came up this morning and was
still in progress at the close of the
day's session. Attorney Kanehkua
is for defendant.
Court opened this morning on
the malicious burning' case, the
same having been carried over
Attorney Kaulukou is noted for
the big smile which usually dis
guises his otherwise sharp legal
features. However, for an instant
last Friday, the smile vanished. It
was while the attorney was cross
examing a witness thac the blow
came. He had asked the witness
whether or not he could tell by a
man's face if he was angry. After
several attempt of the witness to
clearly understand the question, it
seemed to dawn on him to illus
trate his 'reply, so, looking the
young attorney squarley in the
face, he answered, 'I cannot tell
if you are angry by looking at your
face." The broad smile vanished,
and a collapse o f two hundred
pounds avoirdupois followed. "The
idea of not being able to see my
sunny disposition with that smile,
is absurd," saidA. G., afterwards.
"Why a blind person could detect
it in the dark."
In challingiug the jury in the
first trail of the term, juror Zol
ler was disqualified o w i n g to
his not being an American citizen.
He stated that he had voted on
several occasions, living thought
being a resident here since he was
nineteen years o f age, entitled
him to become an American citi-

Kawaihau Organizes Junior For
New Series Which Begins
THREE-TEAM SERIESTO PLAY
Hanamaulu Has Organized a Hot
Team Too And So Has
Kawaihau has reorganized its
Junior ball leaguo, having placed
three teams on the green, the
schedule to begin next Sunday.
The teams will consist of the P.
A. C's, Hawaiis and Kealias. The
P, A. C's while holding 2nd place
last year, are confident of giving a
better account of themselves this
season. The Hawaii's have added
more plavers to their team this
year, and seem a formidable ag
gregation, while the Kealias, who
lost but a single game last year,
hope to do even better this season.
The meinbersof thejunior League
teams are as follows:
Geo. Ah Nee (captain,) Jack
Gomes, L. Alameda, M. Koani, J.
Teixeira, J. Aruda, J. Ncal Jr., A.
Souza, M. Teves Jr., Joe Teves,
E. Mladnich, Charlie Too. J. Po

Two ball teams have been or
ganized in Hanamaulu. Practice
games are held every evening on
the school grounds. Some very
good material is developing and if
the teams keep it up, the Lihue
team next year will do well to
look over these teams for material
for the big league.
Kapaia is already preparing to
come out with an exclusive team
next season, to be headed by John
ny Fernandes. The three Fernan
des brothers arc all good players,
and in themselves would make a
team hard to defeat.
President R. P. Spalding of the
Kauai Athletic Association has
taken steps to get together a Kau
ai baseball team and has so noti
fied all players, of such. inten
tions. W it'h the material to
select front, Kauai need have little
defiiculty in rounding up an aggre
gation of players that will skin
anything in the Territory.

Arrangements are said to be un
der way whereby the Kilauea-Mc-Bryde,
two-out-of-three games for
the final island Championship, will
hi? milled off in Kilauea. McBryde
and, Lihue respectively. That is
the first gain to be played in Ki
lauea, the second on the McBryde
field, and in the event of a third
game, the same to be played off in
Lihue. This program seems to
have met with general approval,
and will no doubt prevail.

with the shortage of Bullmosses,
CLUB IN ITS
Club Members Gather At Their
Annual Banquet And Name
PRES. WOLTERS REELECTED
Former "Boss" Receives Gift From
Laborers As Token of Good
Luck to Him-
At the annual meeting of the
members of the Kegel Club held
at their headquarters last Thurs
day evening, the officers for the
ensuningyeat were re-elect.-d as of
the present officeis, to wit: H.
Wolters, president; H. Rohriir,
vice-president; C. Maser, secre
tary and treasurer.
The treasurer's report showed
the Club to be on a sound financial
basis and an indication of a pros
perous year. Following a sugges
tion of President Wolters. an ar
rangement was made Whereby a
scries of games will be pulled off
between four teams. The president
appointed as organizing commit
teemen, Charlie Rice, C. Maser,
W. H. Rice, Jr. and H. Ander
manu, Jr. The duty of these com
mitteemen will be to organize four
teams, each team to elect a cap
tain, and then arrange for a regu
lar series of games, say to extend
oyer a period ot three or four
months. Prizes have been arrang
ed for by the club and much inter
est has already manifested itself in
the new scheme.
One specially good feature in
connection with the proposition is
Ihat the offering of prizes will per
mit all those who have fallen out of
the Isenberg contest, to have an
opportunity to make a winning in
this series. Another suggestion by
the president, is that two expert
teams also be organized, with a
view of creating still further in
terest, these two teams, of course
to be composed of members of the
In the past vear, Mr. Wolters
made a splendid record for him
self as the club's president. He is
built on the lines of an enthu
siastic sport and deserves much
credit for Ins excellent adminis
tration of the club's affa'rs.
As to the genial secretary and
treasurer, what can be said of him.
This much: That he is not only
treasurer and secretary, but he is
also the entertainment committee,
collector, bouncer and everything
else that's necessarv for a success
ful bowling game. "Who's therer"
asks a member. '"Maser," is
always the reply. And so it is al
ways Maser is there. He is a
good scout and well deserving of
the high esteem in which he is
held by his brother members.

shortly leaves for his new home
in the Philippines, was the happy
recipient of a gold cigarette case,
last Friday evening, being a gift
of the employees of the plantation
