Honolulu, November 10. When
Judge Gear's criminal court com

ney Clarence W. Ashford, who was
a candidate on the Home Rule
ticket for Supervisor in the Fourth
District, asked the attention of the
court and spoke as follows:
"May it please your Honor, I
wish to draw the attention of the

ago today for county officers. I

cured from very credible sources to
the effect that, in numerous in
stances which I have cited in this
paper which I hold in my hand,
direct and very serious violations of
the election laws were committed.
"There was false personation of
voters, men voting in the names of
dead and absent voters and perjury
was committed in swearing in such
votes. And there was fraud in the 1

"I call this matter to the atten

judge with the view that your
Honor will submit the matter to the
grand jury for investigation."
Here Mr. Ashford passed a type-
written document up to Judge Gear,

Judge Gear here stated that it
seemed that the members of the
grand jury should take up the mat

tent, being implicated in the charges.
Deputy Attorney General Peters
did not see that any charge had
been made; Ashford had merely
made an ex parte motion. "I do
not know," said Peters, "that there
is here any charge against the At
torney General's department that
your Honor should intimate that
the Attorney General could not act
in conjunction with the grand jury."
Judge Gear "When the court
charged the grand jury it did not
give any matters especially into
their charge. The Attorney Gen
eral was to wait on the grand jury
and that body was charged to look
into all such matters as might be
brought to their attention by the

Peters "I certainly know it, as

Ashford "I was simply giving

you were not implicated."
Peters "I don't want any cer
tificate. I don't need any."
Judge Gear "The grand jury
has adjourned until Thursday, has
it not, Mr. Attorney General?"
Peters "It has, your Honor."
Judge Gear "On Thursday,

will appear for further charge.
