THE LIBEL OASE.
Monday, April 23 Before It. F.
Bickerlon, Rex vs. J. Ut Knwainiii
and B. W. Kawaimii. Mr. John
Russell for the prosecution ; Mr. S.
B. Dole and Mr. W. O. Smith for
The charge in this case was libel
in the 2nd degree. The defendants
arc tho proprietors and publishers of
the Pac Ainu,, a newspaper published
in tlio native language. They ad
mitted the publication of sin article
entitled, "Our Deputy-Sheriff. Wai
luku," and also that John Richard
son was Deputy-Sheriff of Wailuku.
Mr. Dole moved to dismiss tlie
case, as there was nothing libellous
in the article.
Mr. Wilcox, by order of the
Court, gave an interpretation of the
article. It opens by asking what
sort of pcrsou is our Deputy-Sheriff
at Wailuku: " Something concern
ing him should be briefly stated, so
as to have his clmracter known." Il
goes on to accuse him of harboring a
prostitute, and says " it is disgust
ing to the minds of the good people
of Wailuku to sec the Deputy-Sheriff
of Wailuku entertaining a vagaboud
within the doors of his house where
bis family lives," and wiuds up with
the following proverb: " The Sheep
and the CSoat live peaceably to
gether because one master feeds
them with grass."
Mr. Dole ro3c to explain the law
of libel. The article said to be libel
1 his, merely accused the plaintiff of
c itertaining a woman of bad charac
ter. There might be different opini
ons as to the motives in so doing,
lie (Mr. D.) might find reasons to
o itertain a woman of that kind. The
w rlcl might say it was imprudent,
but it would not hurt his reputation
i . the slightest degree. The plain
tiff must have a bad conscience to
say he is a niaiked man, and to
bring up a charge that might be con
strued as a compliment to him. The
n 'icle does not impute anything dis
gra 'cful. and there is no evidence of
malice, therefore ho considered it
i.iu duty of His Honor to dismiss
Air. Russell said lie did not think
it necessary to travel beyond our
own Penal Code in order to ascer
tain whelherjtbe article was libellous
or not. There were questions for a
jury, and he" asked that it lie sent
iiciorc a jury. He took it for His
Honor to decide whether or not a
prima facie case had been made
out. He read Sec. 1 Chap. 32 of the
Penal Code, and added that if the
article was not libellous under tho
Act there is nothing libellous in this
country. He alluded to the circula
tion of the 'newspaper, said to be
over 8,000 copies. He considered it
premature to consider the question
of malice. Ho referred His Honor
to half u dozen words in tho article,
more particularly the ono which
translated character. The severity
of the libel was all the greatcr.on ac
count of the plaintiff holding a pub
lic position, but it .was aimed at him
privately as well as publicly. He
considered it a most venomous libel.
After a brief rejoinder by Air.
Dole, His Honor expressed his opini
on on tho translation of the article
in question, and considering it came
within tho meaning of the Act, ho
overruled the motion of the counsel
for the defendants mid committed
tbem for trial at tho Supremo Court.

Dtmixn this week some letters
arrived at the Post-Olllcc,. and were
placed in a box belonging to a
merchant in this town. They were
seen to be in the box that night, and
the next morninir when the owner
came along no letters were to be
found. The same thing occurred to
a gentleman uomg ousmess on me
wharves. Some of the missing
letters arc known to have contained
drafts. Can it be that botne one has
obtained a master key or a set of
keys' to all or a portion of the letter
boxes, and pursues the nefarious oc
cupation of stealing letters by niglit?
Ox Tuesday afternoon about 3
o'clock, two llawaiians, prisoners
working out-of-doors, escaped. Ouc
of them named Paulo was working
at the quarry and the other, Kahana,
was working at Alajor Rosa's. Pa
ulo left the quarry and came down
to Kahana, and after having dressed
themseh cs in some clothes taken from
Major Rosa's they went off. The
alarm was not given till about o
o'clock and parties were then sent
out to look for them, Paulo was
caught at about 5 o'clock on
School street, being knocked flat by
a limn sent out after him. Kahana
was caught half an hour later in the
grounds of a private residence lacing
on Fort street, by about (i llawaiians.
One of these, when the man was
caught and held by two others,
having offered, and now offering no
resistance, punched him in the head
without any provoealionwhatevcr.
Both men had over a year to,scrve
and were under sentence for larceny.

THE HILO AFFAIR.
The entire- Kingdom has been
fearfully shocked by the shooting at
Hilo on the 18th, and the question
is being asked, what was the reason?
The facts, piimarily, are these: The
Government are unable to enforce
the laws regarding 'illicit' whiskey
selling; why? Because of the inelll
ciency of the police their numbers
may bo many, but their efficiency
may be represented by, the cipher 0
being unable lo enforce the laws,
n bystem of stool-pigeons or inform
er is rcsoitcd to, and it seems the
right kind of men for the business
were found, that is, judging from
their antecedents while living in
The Government, considering "tho
end justifies the means," pmploycd
these ttoal-pt;conn, who have done
the dirty work of the Police ( ?) and
tho result we have at least one side
of tho fatory.
The men who were shot bear good
reputations, some of them, notably
Teunaut and MoC'ullum, aro well-'
known here, by homo of our bet
citizens who speak liigldy of tlieni ;
can auy ono say ns much for the
shooters? Again tho question arises,
why were these men killed ? why is
whiskey free in Honolulu and Icapu
in all the other islands V because the
law provides it shall be so; then en
force the law, butdo it legitimately.
Clear out the whole Police Depart
ment from root lo top, employ
(rood, sober, honest while mon, as is
done t'lecwhcro wo linvo a few,
very few bore repeal tlio license
prohibition, and alJw an
privileges to the people of the ow"w
islands that aro accorded to those of
Ilouolulu, and, whisper, it will
bring more money into the Treasury ;
per contra, how much will this "Hilo
tUTiipo" cost tho country iu dollars
and cents, aside from the scandal?
I say, either repeal tho license law
or else enforce total roltilltivn.
The name of every man who sells
whiskey in this Kingdom is known
to the police; if not, why? If it is,
prevent, liquor being shipped to
tlicm. Do not allow any body and
every body to purchase it in Hono
lulu, f-hit i it to the other islands,
make no effort to prevent the laud
ing of it; but alter it is landed dp
have proper olllcers of the law to
enforce the law without having to
call on renegade stool-pigeons.
Wo print the above as it is writ
ten lo us, but we do not think the
fault lies at the door our correspon
dent places it at. If a license had
been granted at llito' allj this might
not have happened. Still it lias ami
it should be a warning to the Gov
ernment not lo make laws, unequal
in their operation. Ki.
