High, Sheriff Brown who is on
this Island, recuperating and at the
same time inspecting the pojicc in
the different districts left Ililo Mon
day morning for the Hamnkua
district and will sail for Honolulu
by the Kinau at Waituea this trip.
Before leaving Hilo, the High
Sheriff was seen by a TumuNK Rep
resentative. The High Sheriff
in a general way is very well
pleased with the working of the
police force on this Island. He
had not yet visited all the districts,
but so far as he had gone, he had
found few flaws.
"I have just returned from the
Puna district," said the High
Sheriff. "Down there I met Cap
tain l?!darts who is the oldest of
ficer in our department or any
department. He is past eighty
years of age but is as straight as
an arrow and lithe as an Indian.
He is as ready to tackle a rough
house or a bad citizen as the young
er men and is as fearless and cool
as a metropolitan police sargeant.
He has proved himself a most effi
cient officer. He understands the
Hawaiian language thoroughly
having lived on the Islands for
thirty years and I consider him one
of the most competent deputies in
In the Kau district where there
has been such a tangle in police
matters for sometime past, the
High Sheriff found matters run
ning smoothly under the new
deputy, Henry Martin, Jr. "Mr.
Martin isayoung man twenty-three
years old," said the High Sheriff.
"He is a graduate of Kamchameha
schools and a son of Henry Martin,
the former District Magistrate. He
is a brother-in-law of Mr. Hewitt,
manager of the Naalehu plantation.
Already the new deputy has suc
cessfully prosecuted several cases
atid he promises to make an excel
lent officer. He has influential
support, which with his own ex
cellent character and industry will
commend him to the confidence of
"I have not yet visited Kohala
or the Konas. At South Kohala I
have an amusing knot to unravel.
There, the Deputy Sheriff, Mr.
Spencer, is under sentence of con
tempt by the District Magistrate,
and bad feeling reigns in the Court.
It seems that a slaughter house is
situated close by the residence of
the District Magistrate. lie de
cided that it was a nuisance. He
therefore issued an order directing
the Deputy Sheriff to abate it forth
with. The Deputy Sheriff coun
selled with the officer of the Hoard
of Health who pronounced the
slaughter house sanitary in all re
spects and therefore not a nuisance.
The Sheriff therefore refused to
abate it. The District Magistrate
followed by summoning the Deputy
Sheriff to the bar of his Court. He
imposed a fine of $5 for contempt
with confinement in jail until paid.
The Deputy has so far refused to
arrest himself, hence he is still at
"In my judgement the District
Magistrate exceeded his authority
in pronouncing the Deputy Sheriff
guilty of contempt and his order is
This incident was a reminder ol
the similar state of affairs between
Judge Utile and Sheriff Andrews
here in Ililo. When asked what
he thought the outcome would be,
the High Sheriff said:
"This is an unfortunate affair be
tween Judge Little and Sheriff
Andrews. How it will terminate
no one now can say. The Attorney-General
and myself claim that
the whole matter is now out of the
hands of Judge Little and solely in
thc jurisdiction of
! General. As the matter now
I stands, Sheriff Andrews is under a
j fine, which he will not pay and he
is technically in the custody of the
Judge Utile's baililT. If the fine
is not paid, the order is that Sheriff
Andrews be imprisoned until the
fine is paid. There is one thing
certain, Sheriff Andrews will not
permit himself to be taken into
custody. Judge Little may use
force, but no he cannot summon
enough force to imprison the
Sheriff. It is to be hoped that the
matter will not reach this phase,
"Anyhow, if Sheriff Andrews is
taken into custody the only proper
place to confine him is in the jail.
By law .Sheriff Andrews is the
jailer, and fix it as you may after
all he must be turned into his own
custody. He would not very likely
lock himself up for any lengthy
"In this matter Sheriff Andrews
is acting under instructions from
myself and the Attorney-General.
We arc proceeding under the old
custom which in compliance with
the Audit Act makes each Deputy
Sheriff a public accountant. When
Judge Little first made his order
fining Andrews, we consulted with
Auditor Austin who advised that
the old system be continued.
"Judge Little contends that fines
imposed by him, when paid to the
Sheriff, are paid into his Court atid
that they should be disposed of ac
cording as he orders. He holds
that the case is entirely in his own
hands until the sentence imposed
on Andrews is complied with."
With regret we note that the
NcwY'ork Sun calls our old friend,
Col. Henry Watterson, of Louis
ville, Ky., a "hayseed." Surely,
the Sun might have bestowed a
more dignified epithet on the eru
dite but erratic Colonel. Why
why didn't the Sun call him a liar?
Then the valiant Colonel could
have an opportunity to retaliate in
kind; but now what is he to do?
How he must feel! A "hayseed,"
with all the ignominy attached to
it. Oh, Sun, please retract that.
You have taken the Colonel un
awares you have smitten him in
the back. Say something that he
can expatiate upon something dig
nified something with tone to it.
And yet now to think of it does
the Sun know what Senator Depcw
had to say last week at the meet
ing of the New York State Asso
ciation of Republican editors? The
Senator said that Colonel Watter
son is the "brainiest, most sugges
tive and original mind in the Dem
ocratic party." Possibly the jurt
doesn't think that there is so much
of a compliment in that, anyway.
But speaking of "hayseeds,"
John A. Sleicher, editor of Leslie's
Weekly, had a word or two to say
on the subject. In his remarks at
the meeting of the Republican edi
tors, aforementioned, K d i t o r
Sleicher said, "What would New
York be without hayseeds? What
notably strong man in this city was
not a country boy or son of country
parents? Senator Piatt, Senator
Depcw, Governor Black, President
Stern (of the association), and so I
might go on to the end of the list."
Not such a bad list in which to be
