CLOSING THE CASE
Mr. Neumann Claims a Dis
ciia'ga for V. V. AsMord.
JidgQ Advocate Klcney Conitn's for a ;
1 Court couvenod at 9:10 o'clock
1 Jud(?o Advocato Kinnoy desired to
bring in a witness to testify that a
1 mossago was sent by C. V. Ash ford,
by soiiio other person than that
mentioned by 0. V. in liis evidenco
Mr. Netinianii admitted that a
messagi) was sent by another poron.
Sam Novvloin called in rebuttal,
, states: Don't remember going to V.
V. Ash ford for his opinion on a
search warrant being issued for
Washington Place; don't remember
going to him and asking his opinion
on th reported wholesalo arrests of
Cross-examination No ono spoko
to mo about this case since adjourn
ment yesterday; that is tho truth.
Kanihomauole, sworn, states: Am
a hack driver on tho City Carrtago
Co.'s stand; have scon this (entry
book oxhibitod) before; hivo made
entries before; this bco!: i- for enter
ing telephones f'r naelie; remoMber
ontoriug telephone order on Jan.!!
and hack Xo. '20 was despatched; V.
V. Ash ford sent tho message for a
hack to go to his place on Punch
bowl street; the entry was made at
7:30 o'clock in tho evening; I noted
tho tiujo from my watch.
Cross - examination ilavo mado
several onirics in this book; mado
two on Jau. i), (Into of Ashford's call.
V. V. Ashford, recalled: Wont to
Sttn Stouo'a place on overling of Jan.
n 011 business about transfer of mort
gage and of certain property at Kau,
Hawaii, between Kaapaua and Sam
Stone; Stouo tolophoucd to me that
evening that ho wautod to taik with
mo about the deeds; as Stone had to
bo back to Oahu Prison at 8 o'clock,
I took a hack at 7:30 and drove
there; I left again in a fow minutes,
before Stone loft tho house for tho
prison; remember reaching homo at
8 p m. and retiring shortly after.
Cross examination Only saw tho
immediate members of Stone's family
at his (Stouo's) hoiuo that evening;
, may have asked him what tho news
1 was, but .outside of this and tho
transaction about tho deeds, that
was all that took place thoro that
Mr. Neumann loft tho caso boforo
tho Court, saying that tho evidence I
warranted discharge of prisoner.
Judgo Advocate Kiuney stated '
that this was tho only cao which
had put in a full dofense, of all tho
trials before this' Commission. Ho
held that tLo paramount duty of
tho Couiuiispiou is at hand, wheu
they have to exorciso thoir judicial
authority by dispassiouatoly and
clearly dissecting and couipar ug
coullictiug ovideuco. Captain Kin
noy contended that whon Mr. Ash
ford introduced ovideuco it was tho
duty of tho Commission to weigh
both sides carefully. Wo are deal
ing with 0110 of a class who uovor
; Si Vholr KtaU&nw iSi
leave a broad track bi-h'nd, aud they
discrimination to moot it as thoy
I would follow tho trail of a fox as
I compared with tho priuts of an elo
1 phnnt. Ho urged that tho prisouor
1 should be condemned, if condemned
at all, on tho ovulouco adduced 111
this caso, and it bocamo tho duty of
tho Commission to Roarohiugly
weigh tho ovidonco. Tho charge
against this prisoner is misprision of
troasou, tlio concealing of kuowledgo
of a projected uprisiiig. Ho roviow
ed tho ovideuco of Sam Nowleiu nud ,
Capt. Davios, two direct wituossos
against tho prisoner, and ho sub- 1
mlttod that tho weight was immeas
urably greater on tho side of the
prosecution as agaiust that of the
Ashford's. If tho ovideuco of such
! men was not carefully weighed by '
this Commission, as givon boforo
them, ho felt it his duty to drop
thorn. It is true that Nowleiu has
bnou promised his life, on tho con
dition that ho mako a true confes
sion to tho Government. Tho Judgo
Advocato after delivering a stirring
address left tho bunion of tho caso
with tho Commission.
Tho Court cleared for a recess.

soners wero brought boforo tho

AN INCIPIENT FIRE.
Starts In H. F. Bortolmann's Omco
Supposod Incondiary Origin.
Shortly after 10 o'clock last night
the gongs and rattlo of firoonginos
wore hoard in tho stroots, followed
immediately by an alarm from tho
bitr boll at the cetitral lire station.
The answer of telephone central
to hundreds of questions was, "Cor
ner Kiug and Fort Btroets." This
point beiug in tho heart of the busi
ness quartor, and ono of tho corners
forming part of an extensive rango
of old woodou buildings, a good
deal of public oxuitomout resulted.
Tho fire was in tho office of H. F.
Bortolmaun, ono of tho imprisoned
rebel leaders, ou Kiug etroot several
doors from 1-ort street. It was right
under tho ceiling closo to tho wall
toward Fort streot. Behind tho
ofllco is Bortolmann's carpenter shop
containing much inflammable ma
terial. On tho other side of tho
wall is tho Pacific Transfer Co.'s
ollico, which, being covered inside
with old wall papor, would if tho
firo had roachuu it speedily have bo
como sheeted with flame. Ou tho
Fort streot side is au old two-story
wooden building, occupied down
stairs by a Chinese vogotablo vender
and upstairs as a touomeut by other
Chinese. This building was filled
with smoko and tho firomon drench
od it with water.
Iu a fow minutes all tracos of firo
had boon wiped out. Deputy-Mar-1
filial A. M. Brown began investigat
1 ing tho firo forthwith. Ho said this
I forenoon that he had no theory as
to tho origin except that tho firo
l was willfully started by somebody
I Au interesting cireumstauo iu
t couuoction with tho firo alarm was

Guard. This body when roliovod
