CLAIM THEY ARE DISCRIMINATED AGAINST
The Japanese press and other Japanese leaders are much exercised
over the enforcement by Sheriff Keolanui ol Act 46, passed by the last
legislature, regulating the business of farriers and horscshocrs. 1 hts
provides among other things that all persons seeking to engage in the
horseshoeing business shall be examined ns to their qualifications and
upon the payment of five dollars for
ceive a license to act as a larrier or
It is stated by the Japanese that out of fifteen of their countrymen ex
amined by the examining board not one has been passed. The examin
ing board consists of Sheriff Keolanui, John O'Rotirke and Kealoha
Keliikahe. When inquiry was made of Mr. O'Rotirke, who is in charge
of the Volcano Stables horseshoeing shop, he stated to a Trihu.nk repre
sentative: "There is no discrimination whatever against the Japanese.
The trouble is that so few of the Japanese who profess to know how to
shoe a horse are familiar with the first principles of the work. Few
persons realize the importance of shoeing horses in a proper manner.
It is an art, and to be scientifically done a farrier ought to be familiar
with the anatomy of a horse's hoof and leg. I have seen many a fine
animal ruined by lack of knowledge in shoeing.
"The examination we are giving these applicants for licenses is very
simple and any practical horscshoer ought to have no difficulty in coming
up to the requirements. The test given is to make a pair of shoes from
a straight bar of iron and fit them to a horse. I believe some Japanese
have satisfactorily performed this test before the other members of the
examining committee, but out of the eight or nine who have been before
me, none have shown their ability to turn out a decent pair of horse
shoes within any reasonable length of time. One fellow took all the
afternoon to make a single pair of shoes. Others took anywhere from
twenty minutes to an hour, but were unable to prepare an animal's foot
properly for receiving the shoes. There are plenty of white men who do
understand the principle of horseshoeing and who would be unable to
pass as simple an examination as we are giving. There is no discrimin
ation against any person because of his color or race. Hut we want to
satisfy ourselves that a.person who se'-des to become a horscshoer under
stands his business "
Mr. O'Rourke had on a bench the result of each applicants handiwork.
Each pair of horseshoes was tagged, bearing the name of the person
and the length of time occupied in making the shoes. There were
shoes of every conceivableshape and weight. No pair were males or
matched as to style or weight. Either they were lop-sided, had a rough
surface, toed in, toed out, were over
shape or the nail holes so large that
hoof. Nearly all ol the candidates nad taKen too long emier in tue
manufaclure of the shoes or in the preparation of the animals' feet.
Most of the Japanese artizans use.ready made shoes, which either hit
or miss and have the same effect on a horse that bad fitting shoes have
on a human being. To show how quickly and deftly a shoe could be
made, Mr. O'Rourke? who is an ciLert farrier, having received his
training in London, proceeded to make a finished shoe out of the raw
material. He took just a minute and a half by the clock to turn out a
finished shoe ready for use. None of the bunch of samples submitted
by the Japanese students resembled Mr. O'Rourkc's shoe, except in
general appearance and shape. '
The law which is being enforced by Sheriff Keolanui and which has
caused such an uproar from the Japs, is as follows:
Section 1. No person shall engage in the business of a horscshoer or
a farrier for hire without first having a license so to do as provided herein.
Sec. 2. Any person who may wish to obtain a horseshoer's or farrier's
license shall make a written application thereforto the Treasurer, wherein
shall be stated the residence of applicant, his age, the length of time and
the place where the applicant has
where he intends to carry on his trade.
Before such application is granted
the Territory, shall examine the applicant to determine whether he is a
suitable person to carry on the trade of a horseshoer and farrier for hire,

cant is a suitable person to engage in such trade, the fact shall be attested
on said application by the examining High Sheriff or Sheriff.
Sec. 3. The license fee of farriers shall be five dollars per annum and
payable to the Treasurer.
Sec. 4. Whoever shall violate the provisions of this Act shall be
guilty of a misdemeanor, and, on conviction, be fined not more than fifty
Sec. 5. This law shall take effect on the date of its approval.

Since Saturday afternoon, a native fisherwan by the name of Kalua
halawa has been missing from his home near Hakalau. He left early in
the afternoon for the beach with fishing tackle and a bag to gather
opihi, a shell fish that grows on the rocks. He did not return at night,
whereupon a search was instituted, without finding the missing man.
His fishing pole was discovered on the beach and it is supposed that he
was washed from the rocks and overcome by the heavy surf which runs
along the Hakalau coast. He was married, leaving a wife, who resides

Can Circuit Judges Naturalize.
The question of the legal powers
cants for American citizenship has
before Judge Poisons ot Honokna,
Supreme Court. C. S. Smith, attorney for the defendant, has challenged
the indictment on the ground that the Grand Jurors who lound it were
not citizens. A number of them aie Portuguese who were naturalized
in Territorial circuit courts, and there is reported to be considerable in
dignation among the Portuguese over
Kaisu is up for trial under accusation of a very brutal crime. He is
alleged to have killed one Moriama by beating in his skull with a hatchet.
The crime as alleged was so atrocious that the authorities refused to
accept a plea of guilty of murder in the second degree, and Deputy At
torney General Prosscr, who returned on the Kinau last Wednesday
from Honolulu in order to attend the hearing, which was
resumed on Thursday.
Attorney Smith's motion raises a question which has been before all
the circuit judges and before United States Judge Dole, but has never
been adjudicated. Circuit Judjc Gear held that as a circuit judge he
had no right to naturalize applicants for citizenship, while Judges De
Colt and Robinson have held the other way and sworn in a number of
citizens. Judge Matthewman held
The matter came before Judge Dole in the shape of an application for
naturalization by Judge Clark, District Magistrate at Kailua, who had
been sworn as a citizen by one of the circuit judges. Dole did not make
any legal ruling, but he declined to naturalize the applicant over again,
as this would have been practically a ruling that the other naturaliza
tion was invalid. At the same time the judge stated that he was not be
considered as deciding the matter, it not having been brought before him
Judge Parsons has not given his decision yet. desiring first to give the
questions involved a more thorough investigation after his return to
Hilo. It will therefore be several weeks before his decision is made pub
lic. There is much speculation as to the result of Parsons' ruling to
sustain the contention of Attorney Smith, for in the opinion of many
lawyers, a reversal of all acts of naturalization of circuit judges will bi
far reaching in its effect. The recent election and the right of members
of the legislature to enact laws might be invalidated, as well as all legis
lative enactments. The disqualifying of so many voters, who weie
naturalized by circuit judges, would undoubtedly make a difference in
the returns of the election of a Delegate to Congress, The Honokna
murder case, if appealed, will serve to bring the questoin before the
Territorial supreme court for decision.
