SHERIFF ANDREWS FLUKES.
Anmscs Lawyers nnd Citizens by nn
The sensation in the Courts last
week was not up stairs as might
have been expected from the
array ot divorce, civil aim enra-
tninal causes on the calendar, the
presence of two Circuit Judges and
an army of legal talent. The
sensational case was down-stairs
before Judge Hapai. The defen
dant was George Dunckcr one of
Hilo's best known hail and well
met fellows. The prosecuting wit
ness and prosecuting attorney were
one and the same our well known
and amiable SberifT Sheriff L,. A.
Andrews. The charge was one
that astonished all who were pre
sent at the political meeting at
Fireman's hall last Friday evening.
The charge was that Mr. Duncker
was present at the aforesaid meeting
in an intoxicated condition and that
he did disturb said public meeting.
Mr. Duncker, who took a lively
and patriotic interest in the pro
ceedings of the meeting before the
Senators Friday evening, took issue
with the Sheriffs allegations
When the case was called in police
court, the legal talent along side of
Mr. Duncker, consisted practically
of all the lawyers in Hilo, H. I,.
Ross of Wise & Ross, conducted
the defense, H. I,. Williams, the
new attonery from Puna, was a
close counselor, during the proceed
ings. Both members of the firm of
Ridgway & Ridg way were at defend
ant's table, W. H. Smith of
LeBlond& Smith was within an
arms reach and Carl S. Smith of
Smith & Parsons was near at hand.
In the audience, were Senat.rs,
representatives and nearly all of the
visiting members of the Honolulu

could be seen a set face, betokening
a determination to win tue day,

The Sheriff was the sole witness
for the State.
Mr. Ross for the defense first
called Senator Brown to the stand.
Witness stated that he was present
at the meeting the night before,
saw and heard defendant and that
he did not disturb the meeting and
that he was not drunk.
Senator Woods was next called.
He testified to the same set of facts.
A. B. L,oebenstein, chairman of the
mass meeting, was called. He tes
tified that Mr. Duncker's conduct
at the meeting was exemplary and
that he did not annoy the chair ex
cept in a p rliameutary way. I,.
M. Whitehouse was also a witness
for the defense. It was his opinion
that the defendant created less dis
turbance than the Sheriff did.
This bit of testimony brought
down the house and spurred -the
Sheriff to more frantic efforts to.
win the Court. He asked the wit
ness if he could say on oath that
defendant was sober at the meeting.
This question brought a vigor
ous objection from defendant's
counsel 011 the ground that it was
th.e duty of the prosecution to prove
the defendant guilty and not the
defendant's duty to prove his inno

claimed to the Court that it was a
new thing to him, this theory that
the prosecution must make out a
case against a defendant. Kven
the Japs in the audience tittered
when they heard this new exposi
tion of the law by the Sheriff.
Defendants counsel answered
the Sheriff with the statement that
if the Sheriff or any lawyer could
produce one line or word in all the
law books, in support ot tlie con
' tention that a defendant must prove
i,js innocence, he would instruct

The inciuiry on all sides was,
"What on earth was the Sheriff
trying to do." So far no one has
been able to answer the query.

The increasing importation of
bamboo seem to indicate that
Americans are beginning to appre
ciate the exceeding utility of the
remarkable plant. In the Orient it
fills so large a place that it may be
compared with iron and steel in the
Occident. When dried and cut in
to slivers it makes nails which
never rust. These bamboo nails
have recently appeared in a "Broad
way shop as souvenirs. When a
portion of the surface is removed,
steamed or heated in a fire it be
comes pliable, and may be bent in
to various angles. These two pro
perties enable the Eastern cabinet
maker to manufacture it into stools,
chairs, tables screens etageres,
trunks, and armoires.
In the United States bamboo and
rattan arc made into ornamental
furniture on a small and delicate
scale, but the use of the large sized
bamboo for massive and durable
furniture has not yet been attempt-'
cd. Builders in the cities on tlie!
eastern coast of Asia use the bam-.
boo for masts, poles, ladders, step
ladders, scaffoldings, painters' stag
ings, and other purposes where
both strength and rigidity are de
manded. With equal weights
bamboo is five times as strong as
wood, and with equal strength is
but one-third as heavy. The joints
in the stems enable a workman to
lash two poles together without any
possibility of slipping, which is not
the case with ordinary timber poles.
This does away with the necessity
for nails, and so increases the 1 fe
of scaffolding indifinitely. Kvery
bamboo is practically a series of air
chambers. A boat hook whose
shaft is one of these stems is a life
preserver which will support one or
two persons; while a bamboo gaff
or boom will keep a dozen persons
afloat. In household furnishing
and decoration the Eastern reed
offers unlimited variety. Thus far
it has been employed in this coun
try for picture frames, easels, fancy
chairs, and curtain poles. In the
Orient the large sizes, are sawed in
lenghts and used f6r caid receivers,
sugar bowls, cigar boxes, hand
trays spoon holders, umbrella
stands, drinking utensils, and jewel
boxes. The large ones are cut
through and sawed with scroll saws
into various patterns, which are
utilized as jardinieres or the holders
of pewter boxes, incense cases, and
When softened by hot water and
split into thin strips these can be
woven with cord into veranda and
window shades, door mats and hall
mattings. When split still finer
the strips can be braided into table
mats, chair seats and backs, dado
wall covers and a flood covering
which is almost indestructible.

is intended especially for coughs,
colds, croup, whooping cough and
influenza. It has become fatuous
for its cures of these diseases over
a large part of the civilized world.
The most flattering testimonials
have been received, giving accounts
of its good works; of the aggravat
ing and persistent coughs ithas'
cured; of severe colds that have
! yielded promptly to its soothing
effects, and of the dangerous attacks
of croup it has cured, often saving
the. life of the child. The exten
sive use of it for whooping cough,
has shown that it robs that disease
of all dangerous results. It is es
pecially prized by mothers because
it contains nothing injurious and
there is not the least danger in giv
ing it, even to babies. It always
cures and cures quickly. The Hilo
Drug Store sells it.
