Dr. Holland of Puna met with n severe
accident last Saturday .night that laid
him up in bed for a week and caused the
postponement of the Tavash murder case
in which he was an important witness
lor tnc prosecution.
In company with W. I. Rlckard, Dr.
Holland was driving down a steep hill.
The darkness was intense. A wheel of
the buggy struck a stone or a chuck hole,
snapping the buggy tongue. The vehicle
then rushed upon the heels of the team,
frightening them until they became un
manageable. Both Mr. Rickard and the
Doctor did their utmost to keep the
horses under control, but they dashed
down the hill smashing the buggy com
pletely. Dr. Holland when thrown out
struck a stone, and suffered severe
brui7cs on the side and in the groin.
He was taken to his home at Kapoho
where his injuries confined him to his
bed several days. Mr. Rickard escaped
with better luck, although he had a
rough shake up.

Tells Why Ho Abdicated.
15. A. Douthltt, Assistant Deputy At
torney General, was seen by n TriiiOH
reporter regarding the tic up in the Attor
ney General's Department yesterday.
He said: .
"I have learned from several sources
that the Republican Central Committee
would oppose my appointment as Deputy
Attorney General and it is n question
whether that body would favor my reten
tion, even ns assistant. I have been in
Hilo since December 31, working night
and 'day on a big criminal calendar.
Since the retirement of E. P. Dole, I
have communicated with Lorilti Andrews
by letter and by wireless, stating my po
sition. I obtained no satisfaction except
that I was to remain in Hilo to the end of
this term. I came to the conclusion that

sliould be finished nud that ill)' dismissal
from the department would follow tioii
my return to Honolulu. So before giving
any one n chance to turn me down, I
chose to retire of my own volition. I
take this course, for the reason that the
only reply lo my communications with
Honolulu' has been n message from John
W. Cathcart that I would receive n coin
mission for the Hilo term. My regular
commission expired January 30. 1 did
not consider it fair to myself, that I
should continue to act, when I have
received Information to the effect that
my services .would be dispensed with
tiiiou my return to Honolulu."
I At the time of Mr. Douthltl's with
j drnwal from the office, most of the im
I portaut cases of the term had been tried
and he arranged witli the Court lor a con
tinuance of several cases remaining on
Asked as to his future course, Mr.
Douthilt said he would enter the private
practice of law at Honolulu.
A Number of Jury Trlnls With Local
The case against Henry Wcssel,
charged with the sale of sprituous liquors
without a license was tried Monday re
sulting in n verdict of acquittal, Smith &
Parsons appearing for the defense. In
this case there was much time consumed
in securing n jury. Nearly all of the
disqualifications beingou the ground that
the jurors stated they would not give
credence to the testimony of informers.
The trial consumed most of the day on
Monday and the jury was out all night
and until Tuesday morning at 10 o'clock.
The trial of John Jardine anil Maria
Jardinc for murder in the second degree
was closed last Friday evening, the jury
returning a verdict of acquittal, after be
ing out about ten minutes. The evi
dence and instructions of the Court went
to the jury without argument. The
testimony introduced showed that the
deceased, after a quarrel with the de j
leuaams, leit ineir premises and secured
a hoc. With this weapon he returned,
entered the Jardinc premises and pro
ceeded to assault the defendants. In
self defence, Mr. Jardine wielded a stick
with fatal result. The defense was made
by Attorneys Lelllond & Smith.
Tuesday afternoon in the absence of a
representative of the Attorney General's
department, Homer L, Ross was em-
plojed to prosecute in the case of the
vs. Francisco Torre, in
dicted for rape. The testimony was sub
mitted to the jury without argument. The
jury returned a verdict of guilty after
being out but a short time,
