Tokio, Dec. 22. While the de
tails of Japan's reply to Russia
have not been made public, it is
generally conceded that the ques
tion of war in the Orient is now
presented to Russia for solution.
It is reported that Japan, while
asking Russia to reconsider, has re-1
jected all the essential points of
settlement proposed by Russia.
Should the Russians refuse to re
consider its original proposal, the
situation will be very grave. Such
refusal would likely be accepted by
Japan as an ultimatum preceding
an appeal to arms.
Carter's llllo Trip.
Honolulu, Dec. 23. Governor
Carter had intended visiting the
Island of Hawaii early in January,
but has decided to defer the journey
until after Governor Taft of the

Honolulu, Dec. 21. After con
sulfation this afternoon with Messrs.
Hartwcll and Matthewmaii, At
torney General Andrews left the
matter of the ways and means ol
the county law contest in their
hands. Matthewmaii, for the
Territory, will bring quo warranto
proceedings against the county
supervisors. Hartwell will defend.
Matthewmaii will probably file
papers in the test case tomorrow.
The Governor and the Bar Asso
ciation arc discussing ways and
means for an immediate test of the
Said Governor Carter this morn
ing: "Mr. F. M. Hatch reports
from Washington that there is some
opposition in the Senate to the
proposition of Congress ratifying
our County Act and he hns turned
the matter over to Delegate Kuhio,
leaving it entirely in his hands.
Congress has adjourned for a recess
and the indications seem to be that
it is impossible to carry out the
plan for which Mr. Hatch went to
Washington. The plan is prac
"It now becomes a question of what
is best to do.
In view of the various doubts in
reference to the County Act and
the apparent dissension in the mat
ter, I believe that the administra
tion should do everything possible
to institute a test case and have a
settlement of the affair.
"We should proceed as rapidly
as possible, as so many interests are
affected and there is so much at
stake and we have no time to
A. S. Hartwell, W. O. Smith, .J.
A. Matthewmau and others of the
Hawaiian Bar Association have
been in conference with the Gover
nor on the County Act test propo
sition, andHhe Bar Association will
arrange the matter. As to what
the exact method of procedure will
be has not been definitely settled.
Governor Carter and the Attor
ney General will consult, probably
One suggestion is that the Bar
Association will father the test pro
ceedings and that suit will be
brought against the County Super
visors, in the name of the Terri
tory, to restrain the county govern
ment from acquiring, properties I
from the Territory. According to !
this suggestion J. A. Matthewmaii
will represent the Territory and A.
S. Hartwell, if they are willing,
will defend the Supervisors.
Whatever the arrangement is,
the Bar Association lends a strong
hand and the. expense to the Terri
tory will be nil.
In mass meeting, it will be re
membered, the people appealed to
the Bar Association to test the
County Act. Then Treasurer Ke
poikai brought injunction proceed
ings against Superintendent of Pub
lic Works Holloway to restrain
him from turning the Honolulu
Water Works over to the County
Government in January next, and
the Bar Association, in executive
meeting, decided that, in view of
Kepoikai's action, proceedings 011
their part were uniucessary.
Governor Carter, in an interview,
said he did not quite understand
the attitude of the Bar Association
and thought their withdrawal from
the test proposition something of
au endorsement of Kepoikai's atti
tude. Now, in the light of Mr. Hatch's
statement that the ratification of
the County Act by Congress does
not seem probable, the administra
tion is anxious to have all doubts
in regard to the law set at rest by
settlement in the, local courts.
Attorney General Andrews and
J. A. Matthewmau are consulting
this afternoon as to the best method
of going about the test of the
Mr. Andrews stated that it was
the aim to bring the action in a
way that would leave the decision
sharp and clear as to the whole act
and finally settle all doubts and
possibilities of future contests.
It was practically decided this
afternoon that Matthewmau will
represent the Territory while Hart
well defends the County Government.
