THE LAND FOR THE PEOPLE.
A London despatch of December
17th bays: "The labors of the
Scottish Land Kestorntion League
arc having a marked effect in the
Highlands of Scotland, and land
lords are becoming alarmed at the
spread of the no-rent agitation. The
lectures of Henry George attract
large audiences in every town on his
route, and his doctrine of the na
tionalization of land hccms to have
taken a strong hold on the rent pay
ing classes. The agents of the large
landed estates denounce Mr. George
as the most dangerous agitator Scot
land has ever seen, and declare that
his teachings have not only made the
collcclion'of rents more dillieult, but
have perceptibly, depreciated the
value of property."
It may be communism, or any
bad-ism yon like to call it, to talk of
the possession of great wealth in
money as being criminal, but events
in old countries arc proving that the
interests of humanity demand that a
limit should be put in every country
to the quantity of land an individual
or a corporation should hold. Henry
George may be denounced as a
dangerous character by those whose
inordinate power over the masses
ho seeks to undermine, yet his
doctrine is not much wilder, if any,
than the established practice of the
ancient Hebrew nation. The law of
Moses provided for a general shuf
fling of proprietorships of land every
lifty years, which was an effectual
bar against the causes of such agra
rian troubles as are threatening the
old order of things in many coun
tries at the present day. No nation
with natural capabilities of support
ing u large agricultural population
can afford to allow large tracts of
land to be held in few hands for
speculative or otherwise generally
unproductive purposes. Jt is to be
hoped the aspirations of those Por
tuguese hero, who desire to till laud
for themselves, may be realized.
The country needs not merely
'school-boy" essays upon the rudi
ments of good government, but it
requires even kindergarten instruc
tion to develop a living spirit of
nationality within it. One or two
thrifty communities of Portuguese
peasantry, living largely upon food
-of their own raising, while earning
some money in the cane Jields to
educate their children and provide
against vicissitude, would form an
object lesson that every teachable
Hawaiian, as well as the rising whito
generation, could hardly fail to pro
fit by. The success of the proposed
experiment might be expected 'to
bring the dawn of a great light upon
the pcoplo of this, country. Through
its medium they might begin to per
ceive the rightful heritage they are
being deprived of. They arc having
the land withheld from them and
their children, and any industrious
population that could bo induced to
pitch their tents and cast in their
lots with them. Nothing can be
proved to bo eternal truth more
clearly than the doctrine Mint the
Creator designed the land to be for
the habitation and the sustenlation
of men. Human laws should pre
vent the land from becoming n mere
commodity in Ihc hands of a wealthy
few, to bo turned over and over in
the market, or let at the highest
rate it will bear above the most
meagre subsistence toils cultivators,
to add to already inordinate and ty
rannous wealth and power.
The members of Pacific IIoso Co.
do themselves credit by tabooing
intoxicating drink in their" house on
parade day. Mrs. Leavitt's influ
ence apparently has not been lost
upon the gallant liremcn.
Competition of the Baltimore and
Ohio telegraph lines, that have
cable connections, has made rates
tumble. Only fifteen cenl3 is
charged by the Mutual Union for
messages from New York to Chicago,
twenty cents to St. Louis, Cincin
nati, and intermediate points, and
ten cents to Atlantic points from
Massachusetts to Maryland inclusive.
Jealousy is rcinaiked by a Wash
ington yapor as being rife between
the Senate and the House of Repre
sentatives. Members of the "lower
house say the Senate " wants to boss
everything." A Congress divided
against itself cannot stand, and
unless the breach is healed our well
beloved Bio. Smith of the I'rcsr.
must be prepared to become a
radiant atom of national flotsam on
the ocean of time.
TRIAL OF BMDCES.
BEFOKB C1IIK1' JUSTICE JUDD.
(Wednesday afternoon Continued.')
Henry Armitagc, sworn, stated:
I knew Patten and Bridge?. Saw
them Nov. 12th, when the shooting
took place. T was standing in front
of Williams's photograph gallery.
Heard a pistol shot, and turning
round, saw Patten strike Bridges
with a stick, breaking it. After the
second shot I saw Bridges run up
street, and ran after him, following
him into Horn's bakery. When 1
got to the door met Mr. Horn, who
told me I could not come in. I
spoke to a policeman, and told him
there was a gate where he could
Cross-examined : I think the two
men were facing each other. Did
not sec any slick until after the first
shot, when Patten struck Bridges
across the head. Heard no angry
words pass between them.
E. W. Jordau, sworn: Patten was
employed in Watcrhousc's No. 10
stoie. Shortly after o'clock on
Nov. 12lh, Mr. Starkcy, Patten and
myself were talking at the store door,
when Patten suddenly feft us, went
in and returned with a stick in his
hand. I said to him, "What is up
now?" lie did not reply, but ran
across the road, and up the street
until he came up with a short man,
whom hu struck sevcial blows, and
then a struggle commenced. Not
wishing to be a witness in an assault
and battery case, I turned to go into
the store when I heard a report of a
pistol, followed immediately by
another one. The short man ran up
street, and Patten walked down, but
a moment afterwards fell. Patten
had nothing in his hand but a stick.
Cross-examined: Did not take
particular notice of Patten's face
when ho went out of tho btouc. It
was less than a minute before I
heard tho first shot.
T. M. Starkcy was next sworn.
His evidence wn& very similar to
that of the last witness.
r. S. Ginsbury, Mvorn, stated: I
am a clerk in Fishcl's store. I heard
a shot, and saw J'attcu and Bridges.
Saw the second shot fired. Biidgcs
ran up the street with Armitago after
him. I followed them into Horn's.
Was stopped by Horn and a woman.
Horn said, "Served him right; he
ought to havo been shot long ago."
The evidence for tlio prosociiltbn
Mr. Jonathan Austin, for tho de
fence, stated ' they would not at
tempt to deuy that Bridges had shot
and killed Patten, or that he was
armed, but would show that he had
fired in self-defence, from tho threats
made by Patten, nnd that ho was
justified in going about armed.
Bridges was in fear of liis life, and
tried to keep out of Patten's way.
The defence would show that Patten
was trying to break up the defend
ant's family. He called as first wit
ness W. Evans, being sworn, slated: I
saw the scuffle between the two men.
Thought at first they were in fun.
Heard a shot fired, and saw the man
who was shot standing upright. Saw
one man strike the other with a
II. A. Bridges, the accused, sworn,
staled : I arrived in Honolulu July
13th, 1881. Had been a widower
with two children. Bccamo ac
quainted with my wife two weeks
before I married her. Was engaged
three or four da3's before maniage.
Never heard of Patten before my
marriage. Saw him first on Sept.
28th, but did not speak to him then.
I met him November 2nd. Early in
the morning he had telephoned to my
wife to go to a funeral with him.
She said he was infuriated because
bhc declined. Two hours afterwards
he came to the house, and 1 met him
at the door. He said, "I should
like to sec your wife, I have two
rent receipts to show her." He then
talked to her, and ignored me. The
day before he notified us of bringing
a suit. My wife told me that Patten
had threatened to shoot her. Patten
had also said that my wife and my
self should not leave tho beach alive.
Mrs. Horn told my wife that Patten
had said he did not care for his own
life, but we should not live. 1 felt
in bodily fear of him and he fol
lowed me round, one day into Lyons
& Levey's store, and another time
into Lycan's store. On both occa
sions he had an angry look o'n him.
On November 11th, between 7 and 8
o'clock in the evening, T was sitting
with my wife on Mr. Horn's upper
verandah, Patten came along by the
."ide gate, and shadowed us. We
soon afterwards went into the house.
I do not know how long he stayed
there. Those threats were all made
before November 12th. Prom what
1 hoard I was afraid of him. and
that he would shoot me at the first
opportunity. I always tried to avoid
him. I generally went down Nuu
anu street ou my way to town so as
to avoid him. I was induced bj
fcar to be prepared iu case anything
should happen. I put my pistol in
my pocket on Monday, Nov. 10th.'
On Wednesday in the morning I was
cutting paper for Mr. Horn. About
2 o'clock in the afternoon I went to
the store of Lyons & Levey and
other places on business. At five
o'clock I was on the Pacific Mail
wharf, and heard the whistle blow. I
then started for home, going up Fort
street at a rather brisk pace, when,
near Lycan's store, I suddenly re
ceived a blow and heard bad lan
guage used to me. The blow partly
stunned me. 1 started to run, when
I was grabbed by the shoulder, and
turning round saw Patten. His face
was ghastly whito and frightened
me. I got my weapon. He said,
"Oh, you'll shoot, will you?" I
was utterly helpless, lid not know
what I was doing. I fired once and
I suppose a second time, and then
getting away from him, ran up Fort
street expecting someone following
me (perhaps Patten), and would
shoot inc. I ran into Mr. Horn's
store, and called out to Mr. Horn to
save me, but he did not take any
notice, so I hid myself iu a room in
the rear. I laid tho pistol on a tin
box in tho room. About five minutes
afterwards, T heard a voice which I
recognized as that of Mr. Gibson.
Cross examined : I am 29 years of
age. Came to tho Islands Oct. !1,
1881. Was married when I came.
I lost my wife May 20th, 1884. I
arrived here July 17th from Hawaii,
became engaged to Miss Horn seven
days later, and was married to her
Saturday, Augusl2nd, at St. Andrews
church. Kev. Mr. Mackintosh per
formed tlio ceremony. I did not
propose to her until a few days be
fore we were married. I talked to
Mr. Mackintosh before 1 was mar
ried. If the conversation had been
important I should have remembered
it. I had never heard a rumor of
any kind against tho character of
my wife before 1 man icd her. I
was told in tho Y. M. C. A. Hall
about October 1st, by a young man
whose name I do not remember,
that Patten had been intimate with
my wife. I have seen him since.
He told me this as the reason why
business men shunned me. I told
him 1 was not in a position at that
time to take any stand, she had
been faithful to me, nnd 1 had my
doubts about what ho told mo. I
believe I told my wife about it somo
time afterwards, near tho end of
October. This young man was the
only one that told me of any inti
macy with Patten. Mr. Mackintosh
told mo nothing about Miss Horn.
After being married we moved into
a house out at Palama, rented from
a native whose name I do not know.
Tho bill was made out in Jiis name.
I gave him the money, and he paid
the bill. 1 had a slight unpleasant
ness with Mr. Williams, so did not
care to go to him myself. Wo
stayed in the house about a month,
and then moved into a furnished
house, No. 258 Beretania street,
belonging to Mr. J. 12. Wiseman.
We moved because the house was in
a better and healthier location for
the children. I 6old 1113' own furni
ture at auction. My wife told me
Patten had a furnished house which
he would let
us have ibr S30 a
Pallcn paid the first month's
rent. About the middle of October,
I found out that Patten had made a
present of the 'furniture to my wife.
I objected lo her taking it, and
placing me under obligations to
Patten. From what the young man
of the Y. M. C. A. Hall had told
me, I could now sec 1 was placed in
an awkward position. I found a
letter in her trunk, 'but did not say
anything to hct ; the letter began with
" Dearest " and was signed " Leu."
I imagined from this that some
intimacy' existed between my wife
and Patten. I never wrote to
Patten, or heard from him. Patten
told my wife that he would kill her
if she had nny child by me, her
husband. She told rac that Patten
had said he would hire men to
horsewhip me. This was in October
and I feared it. At this point the
Court adjourned until 1 o'clock,
At five minutes post 1 o'clock
Bridges was put on the stand and
his cross examination continued.
My father-in-law may have made
overtures to Patten to settle trouble
between us. . I spoke to Mr. Horn
about the nature of the letter I had
suspicions about. I found two of
Patten's wife's letters, that is why I
knew he was married. My wife, I
thought, should be sympathized with
because she was a young girl and
Patten an old man. I never sent
nny letters to Patten, or said that I
would send him to the reef. Mr.
Horn promised to burn the letters
after I left the country j he had his
reason for saying so. He advised
me to look, out for Patten, as ho
would do me injury before 1 left th6
country. I borrowed S100 on a
diamond ring from Lyons & Levey.
I got the ring from my wife. I do
not know where she got it from, or
where it is now. I have never made
any effort to get it back. I have,
though, understood since, that Mr.
Paty applied for the ring. My first
wife was intoned May 21st. I came
hero about a month after, and tried
to get a home for my children. I
made an arrangement with a Mrs.
Buekland, a teacher in the Chinese
school, to be my housekeeper and
while 1 fetched the children, she was
lo furnish a houso for ine. I went
back to Ililo and there learned she
did not have a good reputation. Mr.
Leslie bought tho furniture for the
house we lived in at Palama. I
forgot his name yesterday. A good
many things havo, como to my mind
since last night.
By a juryman I wore a short coat
with horn buttons at the time of the
By another I did not notice Pat
ten stood at Waterhouso's door when
I como up Fort 6trcct.
By the Chief Justice I knew Pat
ten worked at Watcrhousc's store.
By the Attorney-General I am
sure I was not on Fort street only at
tho time of tho affray. I was in tho
Keystone saloon on Fort street on
that day, but not in Dodd's Baloon.
