In a lengthy decision filed Inst week
the Supreme Court sustained the decision
ofjlldge Little by which II. Hnckfeld &
Co. was estopped from collecting monies
advanced to J. K. Grossman and M. E.
Grossman for the cultivation of coffee on
Hawaii. The decision, which is a leng
thy one, wns written by Justice Galbrailh,
and though the Supreme Court holds
that the plaiulilThiid a right to foreclose
if dissatisfied with the way the planta
tion was conducted, yet the evidence
failed to prove that the firm of Hnckfeld
& Co. was dissatisfied.
Ill concluding its finding the court
says that the evidence sustained the find
ing of the lower court that the dissatisfac
tion of the plaintiff with defendant's
cofTec growing was not bouafide, and
that no suggestion had ever been offered
to plaiutiltsushowto improve their meth
ods of cultivation.

lit the case of Yutaro, who we are In
formed Is a special detective of the Sheriff,
In all matters connected with the Depart
ment, it is iucotisistaut with the work of
his office, that he should be connected
with nny concern; the Jnpancse Wine
& Liquor Company, or any other firm,
dealing In the sale ol liquors, wholesale,
retail or by peddling. The above re
marks arc further applicable in the case
of N. K, Lyman, the chief clerk to the
Sheriff, and an official of the Japanese
Wine & Liquor Company.
We regret that it has conic to our ears,
that this matter has been the talk of the
town, and that the .Sheriffs Department
lms taken 110 nclion in the matter.
We lenrn that intimidation has been
brought to bear 011 customers of other
houses, that should nny purchase nt nny
other place than front the Japanese Wine
& Liquor Company, they might expect
We have examined witnesses, but ow
ing to the character of the Japanese race,
arc very reticent in divulging nny thing
of the nature, 'though having spoken
freely prior to being called before this
We arc of the further opinion that there
are other officers In the employ of the
Government, having n live interest in the
above named concern, of which Yutaro
appears to be the principal promoter.
We nrc of the opinion that there should
be a wash day nt the Sheriffs office.

dents of Waipio, Hamaktta, Charging

We have examined into this, nud find
Hint said Hoard have not paid this Hill,
but we do find that they were in receipt
of such a bill for $247.00, but refused to
Wc nlso find that n like bill wns sent to
South Hilo Road Hoard for $250.00, which
bill was claimed to be due Hoyd for trav
elling nnd other expenses incurred while
in South Hllo District, and like Hauia
kua Road Hoard, nlso refused payment.
Wc nrc very strongly of the opinion
that the Road Hoards ncted wisely in re
fusing to pay such bills, as there is a
special appropriation for such expenses,
nnd as wc understand it Road money can
be used for road purposes only.
We also understand that Kohnla and
Waimea Road Hoards paid such like
bills, which wc nrc ot the opinion should
not have been paid, nnd very much ques
tion the right or legality of Supt. of
Public Works rendering such bills, nnd
requesting payment of same.
IN THIS CASI5 Of J'UGIHAKA.
Wc begs leave to report as follows on
above mention case :
1 According to testimony, one l'ugihara,
I a prisoner convicted and sentenced to
l-dcath by said Circuit Court did escape
j from the Hilo Jail, Ililo, Hawaii, during
the night of July it, 1901, or morning of
I July 12, 1901, and we find that the Jailor
I (Charles Moore), failed to carry out di
stinctions given by the Sheriff, in that he
ignored said instructions, so far ns main
1 tabling one guard, instead of two, that
I the guards while 011 duty slept nt Inter
vals, nud wc learn that the Sheriff prior
to his departure to Ilouokaa or Knu gave
instructions to Charles Moore ns to the
custody of the prisoner. We have also
learned that he was asked by the Deputy
Sheriff, ns to what instructions were to
be carried out, and the Deputy was in
formed that the matter was in the hands
of the Jailor, Charles Moore. We are of
the opinion that had the Sheriff put the
whole matter in the hands of his Deputy,
who was in charge during his nbsence,
instead of his Jailor, we would not have
been obliged to look into the matter at
j this time.
At the same time wc are of
the opinion that the prisoner escaped
through the connivance of the guards,
not over the fence, or wall, but through
the gate, and that the prisoner's bed was
so arranged to repiesent n person sleep
ing thereon, not by the prisoner, but by
someone hi the Jail, nud that one Kan
Kou a prisoner, immediately opposili
said Kugihara, should not hear any noise
during the night, a guard being placed
between the two prisoners and both pri
soners being shackled, nud the doors of
both cells open, it would seem to us that
the prisoner was assisted to escape. While
we have no proof tltat bribery was re
sorted to, we are of opinion that aid was
given the prisoner both 011 the in
side and outside of the Jail; the fact

vSotts occasion wns this done, leads us to
suppose that collusion was resorted to;
that the Jailor or Guard, fnilcd to report
the prisoner's disappearance to the
Sheriff's office until 6:10 a. m,, when it
wns claimed by the Guard that the
prisoner wns missed between 3 nnd 4
o'clock 011 the morning of July 12, 1901,
is certainly suspicious, not doubting that
due diligence was exercised by the
Sheriff's department nfter they hnd re
ceived word front the Jailor that the
prisoner had escaped. We find Wnlho
lani neglected to find out whether l'ugl
barn wns in his cell on the night of July
tt, 1902, taking Kiimalae's word that
1-itgihatii wns nlright, and did not find
out Until next morning that he was miss
ing. Wc would recommend that an Auto
malic Register and bell be installed in
the place of the ntltiquidaled bell now in
use, while this bell is supposed to be
rung nt intervals of 30 minutes, they have
no means of knowing whether the Guard
is nwake or not: we would like to drnw
nttention to the fact that shnckles now
used in the Jnil can be jerked open by
giving n sharp kick, nnd that the keys to
same should not be kept in the guards
pockets; that proper housing of the
prisoners be made, a case in point, wc
visited the Jail on the 8th Inst., nnd up
on inspection of the leper department,
we found one inmate awaiting for re
tuovnl to Houolulii, who uixm the Jury
entering nt 3 1-. M complained of not
having nny food since breakfast, (9
o'clock). Apparently he had been for
gotten; that said Jail is not n proper

very flimsy; the stench from manure nnd

Three Jury Trials.
Tlic first jury trial of the term was
Territory of Hawaii vs. Kalialekaa, lar
ceny in second decree. C. M. LcMloud,
attorney for defendant, easily secured an
acquittal for his client, the jury being
out only about ten minutes. It sccuis
that the complainant in the case, upon
whose in formation the prosecution was
brought, had lost n old and ivory lace
jiin several years ago, just how many she
didn't know, and recently she discovered
upon the clothing of the defendant a pin
which she decided was the same one be
cause it looked just like it. The jurv,
however, hardly considered similarity
the same thing ns identity, and the pin
will still repose among the hues and
peitates of the acquitted Kalialekaa.
In the case of Ah Jim, charged with
assault with a deadlv weapon the jury
returned it verdict ofnot guilty on Tues
day evening. Smith it Parsons for de
fendants. Wednesday nfternoon the Government
prosecutor requested a nolle prosequi in
the case of George Durkee indicted by
the Grand Jury for larceny of various nr-
tides of clothing as stated elsewhere in
tills issue, Mr. Cathcart said in support
of his request for a nol pros, that he be
lieved the essential element of felonious
intent wns lacking in the case.
A dead iituley cow, belonging to one
Pedro of Ilaiua'klia, caused tumble for a
Jap of iiiiprouniiiicablc name, who was
charged with malicious injury in com
passing the destruction of said cow.
There was no important testimony to
incriminate the Jap except his own con
fession made sometime alter his arrest,
and which he claims was not true, but
caused by the desire for n light sentence
that he might return to t. bosom of his
family. The jury, howct r, considered
that he came nearer tcll.ag the truth
then than when 011 the stand and returned
a verdict of guilty. Uidgway & Kidgway
