Andrews Fined for Contempt.
One of the last official acts of Sheriff L. A. Andrews before his retire
ment from office was to have a flurry with the judicial branch of gov
ernment, and as a result he is under the necessity of having to pay a fine
ot 950 lor contempt ot court, which was imposed by Judge Parsons on
The contempt proceedings arose out of Sheriff Andrews' failure to pay
over to the Clerk of the Court as directed the sum of $160.54 being
fines and costs collected from Kuakoa, Kaiwi and Peter Kanakaole, who
were convicted on May 7th last in the District Court of Puna for assault
ing a police officer at Kalapana.
From the judgment of the District Magistrate, the three defendants
appealed to the Circuit sitting at chambers. -In the meantime the
grand jury returned three indictments against the three men, which in
dictments were nolle prosequied by the Deputy Attorney General. Judge
Little dismissed the appeal on the ground that there could be no appeal
to the Circuit Judge at Chambers. On appeal to the Supreme Court
the same view was held, the appeal being dismissed and the case re
manded to the Circuit Court, directing such further action as may be
Thereupon, Judge Parsons issued an order remanding the three de
fendants in the custody of the sheriff to execute the judgment of the
District Magistrate. Rather than go to jail, the defendants paid a fine
of $50 each, together with costs, which altogether amounted to $160.54.
This sum was turned over to the Sheriff's department and was about to
be forwarded to the Territorial Treasurer when Attorney C. S. Smith,
representing the three defendants, moved that the order of the Court
remanding the three defendants into the custody of the Sheriff be set
aside on the ground that the proceedings were ex parte, that the order
was improperly made and without jurisdiction, and a denial of the right
of trial by jury.
At the same time Attorney Smith asked that the money in the hands
of Sheriff" Andrews be paid dver to the Clerk of the Court pending a
decision of the Court on the motion to set aside. Judge Parsons issued
such an order, directing the Sheriff to pay over to the Clerk the money
in his hands by 3 o'clock Wednesday.
When the appointed hour arrived, instead of turning the $160.54 over
to Clerk Gurney, Sheriff Andrews proceeded to make an extended argu
ment in his own behalf, and questioned the Court's authority to order
over the cash without having received instructions from the Attorney
General atiHonolulu. Judge Parsons promptly found Andrews guilty
of contempt and imposed a fine of $50. Andrews has filed a reply, dis
claiming any purpose of keeping the money, setting up as an excuse the
confusion around his office resulting from his having been "summarily
and without warning dismissed" from his position as Sheriff; that he
was unable to procure counsel to defend him in the contempt proceed
ings, and had no intention of holding the Court's orders in contempt.
I The case comes up this morning at to o'clock, for filial hearing.
