This is the second trial of Nan Patterson for the murder of Caesar
Young, the wealthy bookmaker who was shot to death on June 4th in
New York while riding in a cab with the pretty actress of "Floradora"
fame. The first hearing resulted in a mistrial, , being brought to an
abrupt termination by the serious illness of a iuror. The semtui inrv
was empaneled on December 9th and the trial has progressed slowlv un-
m mis iimc. iic principal ueiciibe .nos mat Young had committed
suicide. It is alleged that J. Morgan Smith, Miss Patterson's brother-in-law,
accompanied her to the pawnbroker Stern when the pistol was
bought, that he ordered her 10 commit the crime and struck her when
she shrank from the deed. He was a star witness and was not produced
at the trail. Mrs. Young, the widow of the dead bookmaker, testified
to her husband's relations with the woman now accused of causing his
death. Miss Patterson's aged mother resides lit Washington, D. C, and
it has been the prisoner's purpose to spend Christmas with her parents.
Mooheau Pavilion Accepted.
The Park Board have accepted the building hereafter to be known as
Mooheau liall, ana Contractor Ericksou has been paid in full for his
services. The contract price was $2,965, and the extras, which were
voted by the Hilo Board of Trade, brought the final cost up to $3,228.
The extra charges were for changes in the specifications, such as in
creased plumbing work, changed location of closets, closed casement for
the balustrade, which cost altogether $263, and were paid for by the
Board of Trade. The pavilion is octagonal, prettily designed and artis
tically painted in serviceable colors. The sloping roof is shingled 'and
stained a dark green. Each of the posts supporting the roof are sub
stantial columns, surmounted by ornate capitals. Speaking of the satis
factory manner in which Contractor Ericksou had carried out his con
tract, Chairman Richards of the Patk Board said' "The building is very
satisfactory and is an edifice of which the Hilo public might well be
proud. Contractor Ericksou hns spared neither time, nor pains to make
the building a first-class structure. He has exceeded woat his specifica
tions called for in order to niikc a nice job. If you will look at the
ceiling you will observe that he has made eight sections of it, while
under his contract he might have ceiled the building straight across.
Altogether the Park Board is much pleased with the manner in which
the contractor has completed his wok,aud all that now remains is the
dedication, which will take place on New Year's Day,"
SHERIFF ANDREWS 6IVES
HEARING TO LIQUOR MEN
Under directions from Governor Carter, Sheriff Andrews held a con
ference yesterday morning in his office with the representatives of the
various wholesale liquor houses iu Hilo with reference to illicit liquor
selling. Governdr Carter has announced that the wholesaler is respon
sible for the prevalence of illicit dealing, andhc has taken a stand that
licenses of wholesale houses will not b renewed where it appears that
the jobber is mnking saleajp unliccnsid dealers.
The object of the mcetiug in the Sheriff's oflice was to loam thi iripnc
of the local liquor incn concerning the alleged violations of the law.
Those present were: E. H Austin, of W. C. Peacock & Co., J. A. M.
Osorio and Victor Hurd of HoiTschlagcr & Co., J. S. Canorio and F.
Sousa of Hilo Wine and Liquor Co. and J. G. Serrao of the Serrao
Liquor Co. Ltd.
It is-claimed by the liquor men that it is none of their business as to
the line of business in which their patrons are engaged and they need
not inquire for what purpose the purchaser of a case of liquor buys it.
They assert that the opposition of the planters to saloons on or near
plantations is in a large measure the cause of the illicit business. Sheriff
Andrews was disposed to take a liberal view of the situation, and agreed
if the same privilege be accorded the Territory to inspect books as is
done by the United States Internal Revenue officer he would be in favor
of approving the renewal of wholesale licenses that are now held up.
Licenses have been refused to the Japanese Wine & Liquor Co., Hilo,
and to W. C. Peacock & Co. for their branch houses at Kau and Hono
kaa. It is expected that the Lenislature will be called nnnn tn .Mmr
special legislation upon the subject.
I cacock & Co. have closed their branch stores nendinir the decision nf
Governor Carter, and are willing to co-operate with the Territory in the
enforcement of the law in every reasonable manner. This is the stand
taken by the representatives of the various wholesale houses present at
the interview yesterday.
Wholesale Liquor House Closed.
Ulaa will no longer have a wholesale liquor house. Governor Carter
has refused to renew to J. P. Lino the wholesale liquor license heretofore
held by George C. Stratemeyer at g-Miles, Olaa. This action is based
upon the recommendation to this effect by Sheriff Andrews, who is
opposed to the establishment of wholesale liquor houses on Hawaii out
side of the precincts of Hilo. The Stratemeyer property is part of a
bankrupt estate, and Auctioneer Ray disposed of the leasehold,
buildings and furniture at public auction on the premises last Friday. ( '
S Floating Farm.
The ship Falls of Clyde was a veritable farm upon its arrival last
Thursday. There were fifty-seven mules, two cows and several coops
of chickens and turkeys. The passengers were given fresh milk and
fresh laid eggs every clay on the voyage down, from San Francisco.
Cnpt. Matson was right proud of his live stock, which he landed at
Hilo m good order without losing a single animal or fowl. J. V. Ray
brought down ten mules for Honomti Sugar Co., ten for Pepeekeo and
twelve for the Hilo Sugar Co. The Ookala Sugar Co. received twenty
five mules, which immediately became the subject of litigation. The
cows were consigned to Manager Webster of Pepeekeo, and the poultry
for the local market. Mr. Stream was in charge of the animals.
Russians Fired on Own Flag.
According to the Literary Digest, commenting upon the lamentable
mistake, of the Baltic fleet squadron firing upon the English fishing
smacks, the Literary Digest, says editorially, sthat our newspapers are
now inclining to the opinion that when the Russians riddled the Hull
fishing fleet, they were firing at their own torpedo-boat squadron, which
they had encountered unexpectedly in the night. "Vice-Admiral Rozh
destvenskv left Libatt with eirrhr nf tlmP mft " . o. r. 1

Tangier only seven strong. At Cherbourg several of the Russian torpedo-boats
lingered outside, making repairs. One, we are told, had a
smashed stem, another had shot holes in the deck. These evidences
convince our press that the Russian ships were shelling their own torpedo-boats.
Russians Do Not Love War.
The Russian official organ, the Novoye Vremya, published at St.
Petersburg, has explained Russia's attitude as a peaceful, law-abiding,
but progressive nation. It says: "No one, of course, will accuse Rus
sian soldiers and Russians generally of a lack of valor. All our history
attests the contrary. Not without significance is the fact that the blood
iest battles of history are precisely those iu which Russians have taken
part. But devotion to military duty does not, with us, spell militancy.
We are ready to die for our country, but we do not love war. In our
nature often to our disadvantage there is strongly developed an almost
unwholesome sensitiveness to the noblest ethical principles. We are too
humane to enjoy war. We have fought much and won many victories.
But we have fought only under extreme pressure and have remembered
the rule that war is only a means to peace. In fighting we have never
done anything to increase the difficulties of subsequent pacific relations
It is this idea of peace even in war which we do not find in
the Japanese. Cold, calculating cruelty, love of fighting for its own
sake, can not excite admiration iu Russia. The English say that this
war is a conflict between n progressive civilization and a stagnant, reac
tionary power; a few purely external, accidental and historic factors
permit them to give currency to this shallow, radically unjust phrase.
No, leaving all thoughts of the present collision aside, we can not admit
that the Japanese are the representatives of procress as acainst the R11.1.
