Refuses to Permit Trial for Assault
An important point of law procecdure
will be argued before Judge Hnpai Mon
day morning. It is the question whether
a Court must follow the Sheriff in enter
ing n nolle prosequi ill a criminal case or
whether there may be discretion exercised,
Sheriff Andrews will deny that the Court
has discretionary power in the matter,
and LeHlond & Smith will support the
contention that the Court is greater than
The case came up ill a manner not com
pliincntary to the Sheriff's department,
One lapattese Satncdi. said by some to
be a spy for the police, and by the Sheriff
Held to !e an oiuccr 011 tnc lorce, got into
trouble recently in ajopancse bouse on
Front street. He entered an upstairs
room occupied by a woman, Kano, by
name and plied her with many questions.
The woman, who was in a delicate condi
tion, was unable to satisfy the curiosity
of her visitor. He became enraged,
caught her by the hair mid kimoua and
dragged her down stairs. At the foot of
the stairs two other Japanese interfered
and caused the officer to desist. Samcdi
wasarmed with neither warrant or officer's
badge and is said to have been under the
influence of liquor.
The woman who was badly cuffed and
bruised, through friends employed Le
Hlond & Smith to prosecute her assailant.
The case was continued once or twice and
came up for trial Wednesday. The Deputy
Sheriff stated that he had been In
structed by the Sheriff to nolle pros, the
case. Mr. Smith opposed this, contend
ing that the Court was not obliged to dis
miss a case merely because the Sheriff
desired it. He claimed it was at least
discretionary with the Judge and that the
Court knew enough of the facts in the
case to warrant it in ordering a trial.
Counsel claimed that if one guilty of such
outrages as in this case could escape trial
merely through the friendship of the
Sheriff, then society would be without
protection from thugs, especially if they
happened to be on the police force.
The Court ruled that if the Sheriff
moved a nolle prosequi, it was the Judge's
business to dismiss the case and Samcdi
was turned loose.
The Attorneys for the Injured woman
held a further consultation and decided
to draw out a new warrant. This they
did and took it to the SherifTfor hisO.K.
He wrote on the warrant that he did not
think the law had been broken; that the
judge could have the arrest made if he
chose but that the case would be nolle
prossed. if it came to a trial.
The Attorneys have ugreed to urgue
Monday the point above set forth.

Would ICnlso Coffee.
Abe Louissoti of Hamakua, was in the
city this week. In a conversation on
the subject of coffee Mr. Louissoti said
that while in Honolulu, recently, he met
a Chicago capitalist who was enthusiastic
over the outlook for coffee in Hawaii.
The Capitalist based all his statements on
the condition that a four cent bounty be
voted by the coming Congress. He said
that with such encouragement, millions
of dollars would go into the production
of coffee in Hawaii.
A Small Strike.
Ten Portuguese laborers refused to
work at the wharf Wednesday because
they were asked to work alongside of

says the difficulty will be straightened

SHAM HATTl.ti AT PUNA.

History or Hilo.
The Sham llattle and Excursion to
Puna, given by Company D, was a pro
nounced success. The facilities or the
Hilo Railroad for handling a crowd were
taxed to the limit. The day was one of
Hllo's fairest. The people were ready lo
go when the train started and it required
eight cars to carry theui. There were
three in a scat and many standing in
aisles and upon platforms. The trains
left the uptown depot with a flourish of
baud music and cheers from the excur
Puna was reached before 11 a. 111. The
excursionists dispersed themselves over a
wide area of country. Some scaled the
heights of the numerous volcanic cones
that make Puna interesting. Others
camped on favorable vantage ground,
where the breezes blew and where the
movements of the soldiers could be seen.
There were a thousand people ready to
see the storming of a Puna kopj by the
four divisions of Company D, under the
leadership of Captain Fetter, Captain
Ludwig, and Lieutenants Ludlofl and
The soldiers for the attack marched
with the Hilo band out by the Lyman
road. The defenders of the kopje 'with
their ammunition and light artillery went
wltli all speed down tnc Hot bprlngs
road and in a very short time had fortified
n wooded hill one mile from the Com-
Cauy's camp. When all was ready the
ugle sounded for the attack and the
soldiers plunged into the thickets of
brush am! weeds. The advance was made
with difficulty over a long low lava
stretch, in which the soldiers were con
cealed from view of the defenders of the
hill. The Hot Springs road lay directly
across the path of the advancing men.
In crossing this they were exposed to the
view of the little company on the- hill.
The cannon were then brought Into play
and the wooded heights were covered
with a pall of smoke for the next three
quarters of an hour. The attacking party
began firing and 011 the crest by the can
non, the reckless rebels exposed them
selves making good marks for the ap
proaching sharp shooters.
In an hour and twenty minutes from
the time the signal was given to advance,
the lines closed in at the foot of the hill.
The order was given to charge and in less
than a minute tlie spectators from hillside
and valley saw the guns taken and the
stars and stripes waved victoriously from
the enemy's ramparts.
The battle was ovet. It had been
carried out with realistic exactness. The
premature explosion of a charge of pow
der on the hill was the only accident of
the day and it did 110 harm. It merely
blankeued the faces and the varments of
The soldiers, musicians and spectators
then turned to their lunch baskets. The
hillsides and roadsides were decorated
with dinner parties. The feast was one
enjoyed by everybody.
Then came the trip home with every
body satisfied except those who could
not find scats.
