THECITY'SHEALTH; '' . ,
By the mottuary" report for June
it will be seen that the., comparative
showing is the most favorable for
that month in five years including
the present. Less than half of the
deaths have been of persons -from
birth to thirty years of age, which
would indicate a 'dfegrcc of'clicckinj
the "slaughter of the innocents"
due to bad"Tftnltary conditions. It
is not, however, satisfactory to sec
that an even fifty percent of the
afiea tvpri iinnttrnflpfl Tliio ia nn
exceptionally; Imd JexhjbitJ'of, 'tlu
loug-stnuding. cvU. n More .persons
died from unknown causes than'
from any one specified discasje, and
of the maladies denoted by far the
most prolific-source of" death was
fever, that,,inclnding;typhoid, num
bered one-fifth of the total molal
ity for its victims. Fever being
generally among the diseases prc
veritable'by good' sanitation, there
is proven by tlu's record to bu room
for further improvement jn our bill
of health. Whooping cough still
lingers in the midst of us, having
shown its presence in the report by
oneT death. Another epidemic is
liable to occur unless prevented by
the greatest vigilance, that often
.serious scourge measles being re
ported in town. There cannot be
an excess ,of stringency hi prevent
ing its spread from the two or three,
if hot more, families in which it has
y , appeared'. It is a sad fact, continu
ing from previous reports, that the
mortality of the Hawaiian race ex-
. c,ods tlmt,of any other nationality.
' VINDICATING THE REALM.
The Friend for July, besides very
interesting reports of a multitude of
important events in churches and
schools for the past month, is re
warkable for its leader on 'Father
plimien'siVork." While admitting
ihe humane 'devotion and Christian
spirit of the famous departed priest,
the Friend is constrained to robut
the calumnies upon the authorities,
civil and' religious, of thiB kingdom
uttered in a large proportion of the
'SjwF'MJPS'j?8 jupon Fntlier Ua
uiiem It proves conclusively from
the1 report of' a Catholic Minister of
tUo( Interior (Hon. II. A. Wido-
raaan), of the time at which Father
Datnien1 arrived, that the temporal
cendition of the inhabitants of the
Molokai leper settlement was not
only not deplorable as reprcsentedi
but remarkably happy in everything
except the disease that ntlltctcd
thorn. This is clenched with an an
terior report by Dr. Hutchinson, in
1872. As to the religious neglect
alleged in those condemnatory ef
fusions, the Friend gives facts to
prove Hint, by the Protestant
Church, "Molokai was, in ninny res
pects, the most t loroughly and suc
cessfully woiked missionary field in
the group." It will be rcmembcicd
that the Huu.ktix a short time ngo
took strong exception to the state
ments in one of these pernicious obi
tuary notices in American papers,
which ill-advised or ill-informed
wrlteis produced with n gusto as if
it was necessary to the noble priest'9
fame to defame the country, to miti
gate the woes of whose unfortunates
he devoted his life energies.
THE CONTEMPT CASE.
Attornrjr-tlrnoral Afthford MtintriKi
ril ta Ono DnyH Imprisonment"
lie HuliiultH Under 1'rolcnt.
At the opening of the Supreme
Court at 10 o'clock this morning
there was a large attendance of mem
bers of the bar and the public. The
answer of the Attorney-General to
the citation of contempt was due at
Mr. A. S. Ilartwell, counsel for
the Attorney-General, promptly bu
gna his argument far discharge of
the rule to show cause. He held
that no disrespect to the Court had
boon intended, but the Attorney
General Inn! taken the course in
question to procure what he deemed
the rights of his ollice. Mr. Hart
well told the story of the famous
Rufus Choate's stage whisper in the
Massachusetts Court, that the Chief
Justice might be a very line man
but he knew no law. There wns
never any idea that Choalc meant
disrespect to the Court in this over
heard lemark. Mr. Ilartwell con
cluded by asking for the discharge
of the rule.
Judge McCully recited the cir
cumstances of this case as previous
ly published, ending in the Attorney-General's
remark that if he
could not control prosecutions in his
own department, ho could- not con
duct any prosecutions in the Court.
It was incredible to the Court that
a public ollicer should declare in
open Court that he would not per
form the duties of his office in Court.
The idea conveyed to his mind was
that disrespect was shown to the
Court. Then, when the Deputy
Attorney-General, Mr. Peterson,
later in the day announced that his
instructions from his superior were
to proceed with no criminal business
t until the demand for a nolle prose
qui was granted, there was no fur
ther loom for misunderstanding the
conduct of the Attorney-General.
The business of the Court was
brought to a dead standstill by the
mandate of the Attorney General
until the Court exercised its author
ity jby making arrangements for the
conducting of the criminal business.
HcA could not find otherwise than
that the Attorney-General was guilty
MrTiraftweiraskcd leave before
final judgment to submit aflidavits
on behalf of his client.
The Court could not see that the
( aflidavits were admissible in such a
case-where the occurrences took
place in open Court and there was
no chance for misunderstanding. In
rply to further argument of Mr.
Hartwell, the Court stated its un
willingness to file any counter nlli
davits to those of the Attorney
General. He found the Attorney
General guilty of' contempt, and
said the sentence of the Court was
that he, the Attorugy-General, C.
W. Ashford, be impiisoned for
twenty-four hours. The execution
of this sentence would, however, be
suspended until the Attorney-General
had an opportunity of pursing
himself from tlio contempt, which
he could do to-day between 1 :30 and
2 o'clock by withdrawing the remarks
for which he hud been adjudged
Mr. Ilartwell asked leave to enter
an appeal against the judgment of
The Court said it could not allow
an appeal in the case.
Other business was then proceed

advanced to the bar read the follow

.Statement of the Attorney-General:
On the morning of July 1st, I
claimed that I had the right to nolle
pros, a case then before the Couit.
This claim J still maintain to be
light, and good law.
I claim that I have the legal right
to nolle pros, any criminal case
which comes before the Court. I
hereby state that I do not therefoie
consider that any icfusal to present
any case is contempt of Court, but
I do further state that I con
sider that my refusal to proceed
with any further prosecutions was
not conformable to the best interests
of the community, although within
my legal right, and I have thcrcforo
proceeded with them. Being con
vinced that 1 lintl the legal right to
do as I djd, and having already
slated that I intended no disrespect
to the Court, I cannot admit that a
contempt was committed, and am
therefore unablo to apologize for a
contempt which I do not admit has
I feel that the action of the Court
Is unconstitutional and revolution
ary, inasmuch as it would enablo
the Judiciary to coerce the entire
Executive Department, and to im
prison the entire Cabinet, aud
theicby effectually obstruct the
performance of all public duties on
the part of a co-ordinate branch of
That it is also an insult to a co
ordinate branch of the Government
and that the action on my part,
not being contempt, I am legally
justified in resisting the order of
the Couit, against which 1 hereby
enter my solemn piotest. But, for
the sake of pieventing u possible
breach of the public peace, 1 hereby
submit to the order, protesting
against its validity, and reserving
my right to my legal remedy for
what I consider to be false impri
