JU1KIE LINDSAY FOR KAILUA.
Will Succeed to Vncuiicy Caused by
Mutt hewnniu's Transfer.
It has been known among the intimate
frieudsof Judge John Albert Matthewman
that he accepted the nppoiutmeut of
Judge for the Third Judicial Circuit with
reluctance and upon the understanding
that he would be appointed to the first
1 vacancy in a judgeship at Honolulu.
While Judge Matthewman has performed
his services at Kailua faithfully and well
and to the satisfaction of litigants, on
account of his wife's health and the
social conditions of the place, he has
sought to be transferred to a more pleas
ant berth in the Honolulu courts.
He has been filling vacancies on the
Supreme bench in Honolulu when any of
the justices have been disqualified. Dur
ing his visit there, he was in.close con
sultation with the Governor se veral times,
and the trnusler has been effected, so it
is alleged by the Honolulu Star. Judge
Alex Lindsay, who is now at Honokaa is
to be made Judge of the Third Circuit
and Judge Matthewman will succeed
Judge Gear, whose term of office has
about expired. No surprise is expressed
at Judge Gear's failure to secure reap
pointment, as he has been unable to se
cure Governor Carter's endorsement.
Judge nud Mrs. Gear arc now in Sail

successful trip to Washington in regard

Judge Dole Seeks Quarters.
U. S. Commissioner I. E. Ray has re
ceived a letter from Judge Dole, asking
him to arrange a suitable place for the
session of the United States Circuit Court
to be convened here Wednesday evening,
Januaiy 37th. Under the organic act a
regular term is required to be held at
Hilo on the last Wednesday in January
of each year and under the law. Judge
Dole has ordered that the court be form
ally opened upon his arrival at 7:30
o'clock iu the evening. Through the
courtesy of Judge Parsons the use of the
Fourth Circuit Court room has been
placed at the disposal of the federal offi
cials, as the use of the room at that time
will not interfere with the circuit court.
No grand or petit juries have been em
paneled, uud it is Judge Dole's purpose
to transact such bankruptcy and other
business as comes before him on Wednes
day night and the following day, so that
he may return ou the same steamer.
Persons who desire to become naturalized

for naturalization in the federal court is

will take advantage of Judge Dole's
Visit of Steamboat Inspectors.

Sciirlc of Illicit Appointed
Surcri'il .Micrirf of llinwill.
It wns generally supposed that the
v!((U ()f ,,, ,, Silcrirr Hcrv la
, vuw ,., cw ,
asl week had
proiwxi'il t-1 1 rii 1 j c in tlieollice ol
slieriir of HhwuiI, nud when the mi
uniinci'tneiil wasnimle 011 Wednesday
that John C. Senrle of 1 1 ilea hud been up-
pointed to succeed Sherilf Andrews, no
surprise was expressed by those nt all
familiar with the situation.
The tenure of Andrews', position has
been hanging by a slender thread, nnd It
is believed thnt his recent nctivltv in
making a personal canvas with n petition
asking for his retention iu office, brought
nbout the change. On the removal of
High Sheriff A. M. Brown Inst October,
Andrews lost his best friend at court nt
Honolulu, nud the many complaints
against his nilministrntiou which had
been pigeon-holed iu his superior's office,
came to light and were brought lo the
attention of Governor Carter. The
executive has bad lu contemplation for
some time a change iu the official head
of the local police force, but has been at
a loss to strike upon the right man will
ing to accept the billet. The men who
have been found qualified for the posi
tion, bad other interests paramount to
thnt of the sheriffship, nml were uuwill
iug to undertake the tnsk. For this rea
son Sheriff Andrews has been permitted
to hold over under the present admi
nistration, until the recent visit of High
Sheriff Henry came with full
removal anu appointment ot 11 successor
to Sheriff Andrews. He investigated the
the local police force, but did not an
nounce his selection of a new Sheriff un
til after consultation with John C. Searle,
who was the Govenor's choice for the
position. Mr. Searle was iu no sense a
candidate for the office, and the appoint
ment comes to him unsolicited. In fact,
he sacrifices a 'more lucrative position
with the Hutchinson Plantation to ac
cept the post. At the earnest solicitation
of High Sheriff Henry, Mr. Searle was
prevailed upon to accept the office and
his commission will be forwarded by the
next mall. Sheriff Andrews and Mr.
Seale hove been fast friends for years and
in a conversation with a gentleman in
Hilo as to the choice of his successor,
SherifT Andrews was frank to admit that
Searle was best qualified man in Hawaii
for the place.
Sheriff Andrews however, gives up the
Job with reluctance ami only recently,
siuce forwarding his petition to the Gov
ernor, asked that the Board of Trade, of
which he is a member, be permitted to
pass an endorsement for him. However,
the Governor has 'bad the proposed
change in view for some lime. He is
familiar with all the charges relating to
the looseness of Andrews' administration,
the employment of incompetent police
officers for political reasons and for the
purpose of building up political strength.
The many irregalarities of pay roll,
letting of contracts and supplies have
beeii brought to his attention, as well as
the garbage system. It is believed that
the continued illicit liquor selling 011
Hawaii, lies had much to do with the de
cision of Governor Carter iu making the
The new appointee, John C. Searle is
at present head overseer of Hutchinson
Plantation at Hilea. He has resided iu
Kau 28 years, and came to the Islands in
1870. He is a man 45 years of age, born
iu New Zealand but is a naturalized
citizen of the United States, and has
taken every oath of allegiance required
by the successive changes of government.
He is a married man, with a family often
children. He is owner of a coffee planta
tion at Hilea, on which he has expended
$5,000. He has served iu various capa
cities in the police deparfmeiit, having
been employed in Hilo at one time under
Slierm Severance. For three years he
acted as deputy sheriff iif Kau, nud re
fused nppoiutmeut as Sheriff of Hawaii
under High SherifT E. G. Hitchcock
prior to annexation. Iu response loan
inquiry of a representative ot the Tiu
HUNlt, Sheriff Searle said lie had nothing
to say for or publication, but proposed to
carry out thedaw without fear or pre
judicc, with malice toward none and
hoped he might have the support and
cooperation of the citizeim of the island
of Hawaii. He hud not given the
tion of any contemplated changes in the
personnel of the office any consideration
and would not do so until he arrived to
take charge, which would be Februaiy
first. Those who nre acquainted with the
new Sheriff speak of him iu the highest
terms, nud promise for him a successful
career iu his new field of labor.

K.isteniStar, Mrs. Wm. McKay gave a
brief historical sketch, which proved
interesting to those present. The idea of
forming an Eastern Star fust came to
Robert Morris when confined to hit
home from the effects of an accideut In
1850. For several years, he felt the
necessity of "Lady Masoniy." There
were several degrees then iu existence,
such as the "Good Samaritan," "Heroine
of Jerico" and "Master Mason's
Daughter," but they had not proven
satisfactory to the ladies. After talking
the matter with his wife, Mr. Morris
wrought the basis of what the Order of
Eastern Star is now. Although he con
ferred the degree upon many, It was
not until 1855 that constellations were
organized upon n ritual gotten up at
great expense, This proved to be too
heavy and resulted in utter failure.
Later, families were formed with the
manual fur a ritual and these failed be
cause there was uot enough of a dramatic
nature to make it interesting. Iu 1868,
Brother McCoy offered to pay the ex
penses, If Mr. Morris would assist him in
the compilation of a Chupter ritual. This
was accepted and carried out with great
success as all now know. Strange to
relate, however, Robert Morris although
the founder of the order, was never au
affiliated member, owing to a disagree
ment over the ritual with McCoy. Rather
than sevcie their long standing friend
ship, Morris withdrew mid never joined,
nltlisMigh thirty years later he was made
uu honorary member.
The tenets and teachings of the Ordei
of Eastern Star imply standard virtues
and a-e calculated to lead the initialed to
look 011 mankind with all the kindliness
and consideration which charity iu its
fullest sense could suggest.
Following the installation ceremonies,
daiiciig was indulged in until a lute
hour. Refreshments were served during
the evening and u thoroughly good time
