IMPOUNDED CATTLE IN KAPAA
BELONG TO POLICE
The estruy situation In the Ka
walhau district which without doubt
la the worst on the Island in this
regard took on a new and serious an
gle last week for at the behest of
a certain citizen of Kapaa two avi
mals a cow and a calf were im
pounded which according to the
citizen had been trespassing on his
property for several nights and had
destroyed a .portion of his garden.
When the investigation in regard
to the ownership of the cattle wn'.i
niado It was found that they were
the property of John llano, deputy
bheriff of the Kawalhau district.
This gives the serious aspect to
tlio case for it Is certain that no
enforcement of the law can be -expected
in the Kawalhau district
when the very person is sworn to
ei'force the law Is one of the offend
ers, for according to the statement
of the citizen that Impounded the
animals, they had bothered him on
several different occasions which
would make It appear that it was
Another, phase of the situation Is
reported by another citizen of Ka
paa is . the fact that nearly all the
horses that are estray on the road
arc the property of one person a
Chinese rice grower. Another citi
zen reports that the situation Is
such in Kawalhau that it is cheap
er to pay impounding fees when
the cattle happen to be rounded up
than It is to pay pasturage.

tax assessor, lo take effect on Aug

Just what is behind this new turn
of affairs is rot certain, but It
looks very much like another master
political stroke to preserve so called
party harmony, at least until after

FAILS TO RENDER ANY AID
TO THE INJURED
A Filipino, Gregorlo Bernandos,
was brought Into the district court
who either thru an oversight or nog
llgenco on the part of tho county
attorney was fined $25 for an of
fense for which ho should have nt
least been sent to jail for a year.
Early last Friday morning John
Malala, an employee of Grovo Farm
whose duties It Is to light tho tire
In. the boiler at the plantation shop
was coming to work from Puhl.
Ho noticed a car coming behind
him and got down Into the ditch
to allow It to pass but nevertheless
the driver either by Intentionally"
or thru careless driving struck him
down and dragged him nearly one
hundred feet. The driver kept on
going never stopping to Wee' if
the man was Injured or killed.
The affair was reported to the
police and a clover bit of detect
ive work on the part, of Enoka
Lovcll among the machines at the
landing found the guilty party who
was brought to court beforo Judge
Hjorth. It, was thought by tho po
lice that the Filipino would be
charged with the crime of striking
a pedestrian and driving off and
leaving him which Is n much more
serious offense than heedless driv
ing. Tho county attorney's office
brought In the charge of heedless
driving for which the offender was
fined $25 and his license suspend
ed for a year, but ho was not
charged with the graver offense.
It Is not known whether tho coiin
ty attorney's office meant to only
bring our charge against tho man
but it Is certnln that any person
who would hit a pedestrian and then
drive off and- leavo hi in does not
deserve any consideration from the
county attorney's office or from any
Tho penalty for a driver to fail
to -give assistance to a person struck
by his car Is not more than two
yoars In jail or one thousand dol
lars fine, or both.

Gomes, employees of tho U. S. En
gineers at the breakwater were re
turning from a visit to tholr homes
in the Kawalhau district In a Nash
owned by Alexander. There had
been a slight rain and the road was
very slippery. According to Alex
ander and Gomes, as they came up
the hill u horse crossed In front of
the car, and In order to avoid the
horse Alexander applied the brakes
which caused him to skid off the
road and overturn. He was pinned
by tho steering wheel but Gomes
who was not caught by tho car was
able to free him, Fortunately both
men were uninjured.
The car was badly smashed and
part of tho body being ruined.
Llhue district has been unusually
free from estray animals on tho
roads and it is unfortunate that ac
cident should occur where It did.
No doubt the knowledge that there
was llttlo or no animals on tho road
in tho Llhuo district causes tho
drivers to bo less vigilant than they
would bo where the cstrays are more

law Is very definite on tho subject

manner that ho handled this number
considerable regret was expressed
by his hearers that he did not give
He then contented himself with
numbers more understandable to the
layman and his lyric work pleased
the audience to an unusual degree.
A well selected program that con
tained numbers with real melodies
made tho concedt exceedingly enjoy
able. But when he reached the Hawaiian
portion of his program it could be
seen that here was his forte, for ho
sang them as only a sou of Hawaii
can sing them and his audience kept
clamoring for more.
His concert at Makawell was a re
petition of his success at Llhue, his
program following along almost sim
ilar lines. Ho again opened with an
operatic number from La Tosca,
this time being Lucevan le Slelle,
and then Bwung into lyric numbers
and finished with Hawaiian. He was
oven better received at Makawell
than at Lihuo, . the audience being
