O. W. Ashford began argument
for the defense at ton minutes to 10
o'clock Saturday morning. The case
against Weed, counsel stated, was
preposterously atrocious ana llag
I rantly improbable. There was cor
I tainly not a line or thread in the
i evidence which could warrant hold
ing of the defendant. The young
I man had boeu approached by Osmer,
whose character was none of the
best and ho ndeavorod to "pump"
defendant. No case of conspiracy
could bo proren against Weed and
; counsel would ask for a discharge in
his case. The fact that Weed was
i seen talking to Crick in a public
1 saloon does not make him out to be
a conspirator. If such were thu in
structions of the so-called detectires
i then it would be very risky for one
to be seen talking with one who is
suspected of being against tho gov
ernment. In Nawahi's defense counsel held
that an alibi had been proven. Mc
- Evoy, tho Scotland Yard man, bad
located the date of Nawahi's con
spiring with other two defendants
at Hush's place as August 14, 1803.
Evidence had been produced that
Nawahi was at his homo on that
, day, it being the birthday of his son.
' Thu detective stated thu hour to bo
2 p. m. At that time defendant was
feastiug at his home. Counsel dls
I missed McEvoy with tho littlo at
tention he said thu dospicable char
actor deserved. Tho govornmont
had put on tho stand two so-called,
disreputablo doteulivus or spies to
swoar away the liberty of reputablo
citizens. Counsol would despair of
his efforts in behalf of his clients if
tho Court's paid no attention to this
fact. Tho oxistouco of the Republic
of Hawaii it is gonorally known has
been harassed and menaced since tho
very hour of its birth, and every one
has had an opinion of his own, anil
i some havu oven discussed plans for
! the overthrow of tho Government.
That did not inoau that they really
j intended to do so. Counsel thought
1 he could draft a better plan or cam
J paign than Nawahi. It seemed to
be tho consensus of opinion that
i everything was dragging along and
J a good many people bavo not been
afraid to speak out their opinions.
Regarding Vau Gioson's evidence
! counsel called tho attention of the
, Court to tho man's character for
voracity. Van Gieson stated that
Bush, Crick and Nawahi were in a
room at Bush's place looking ovor a
plau of attack, a list of names and a
map of Honolulu on Saturday. Doc.
8. Counsel called tho attention of
j the Court to tho fact that Saturday
. was Bush's Sabbath. The unto is
ways barred on that duy and Bush j
I received no callors. tor tho sake ol
i argument, allowing that Vau Glo
j sun's story is true, thu detective
I made a very grave mistake iu not so
i curing tho origiuals. Thou would
! have been worth moro than all his
j declarations on a stack of biblos.
i Perhaps these existed only iu tho
1 mind of the detective.
I Ou closing his argument counsel
I Ashford asked for thu discharge of
Nawahi aud Weed, holdiug there
was insuiliciout evidence to have
either committed. As to tho others
i he would loavu them to bis Honor's
( discretion whether he commit them
! or not.
I Attorney-General Smith begau ar
gument for the Government at 1:80
&m. The evidence, tho Attorney
eueral hold, was sulHcieut to com
mit defendants, for a conspiracy had
beeu proven iu tho meetings held
and in the discussions held indivi
dually aud otherwise. The direot
evidence of witnesses, who saw that
which culmiuatod iu thu finding of a
lanre number of arms. It is true
there was no law against one having
a firearm iu possession for tho pro
tection of life aud property. But
what was tho idea of concealing the
weapons, for iuBtauce as evidenced
in the finding of the rusty guus at
Crick's place secreted under the
house. With regard to tho evidence
of McEvoy as to the 14th of August,
possibly Nawahi was mistaken as to
the time. Nawahi's memory was
rather shaky as to whether he left
home that day, being bis sou's birth
day. Nawahi said that possibly he
was out iu tho foreuoou. With re
gard to tho meeting ou Saturday,
Doc. 8, what occurred there at 0:30
o'clock that day showed with what
sauctity Bush observed his Sabbath.
Tho Attorney-General argued with
couusel that plaus of an attack
could be drawn, without any idea of
their being put into execution, but
in thiB case there was a movement
, towards its execution. Tho defend
ants, according to witnesses, wore
I warned as to thu true character of

I seemed that defendants still ao-
ciated with the detective. Eveu
