lessness in driving tho engine. Six

Dr. J. H. Eaymond gave ovi
denco, when, at 4:25, tho court
took recess till 7:30.
TJiq evening session was ap
pointed so as to allow witnesses to
return homo to Maui by today's
0. 13. "Wells, manager of Wai
luku plantation, was tho first wit
ness in tho evening. Ho had re
tired boforo our reporter arrived.
F.AV. Carter, deputy sheriff,
testified that on hearing of tho
accident ho wont to tho spot and
found tho ongino lying on its Bide
with Walsh besido it. Thoro woro
fifteen cars in tho train. Witness
described tho placo of tho accident.
There woro some natives thore.
Ono of thorn named Kaanaana
was carried away and put into a
wagon. Another man whoso name
ho did not know thou ho learned
since was night engineer of tho
Wailuku mill. Tho ground was
white sand. Whore tho ongino
went off tho roadbed was not so
wide as the length of tho ties.
When tho coroner's jury wont out
ho wont along with a track
gauge; found tho track in plocoa
narrower than tho gauge.
Had conversations with tho de
fendant, who answered a question,
Baying: "What mado tho ongino
go off? Why, it was tho God
damn road." Ho wont with Mr.
Howell and witness ovor tho
track, and Mr. Howell asked him
for explanation of accident, toll
ing him ho would likely bo a wit
ness, as tho man was dead. Do-
fondant gave about tho samo state
ment as ho had given to witness;
told them tho ongino had rocked
near a bridge a mile uway, and
ho had warned tho mon to bo
roady to jump, as ho was afraid
thore would bo an accident. Tho
ongino was lying about sixty feet
from whoro it had loft tho rails.
Tho track was ropairod whon tho
jury wont to soo it in tho aftor
noou,tho same day as tho acoidont.
Ho hud advised everybody not
to touch anything, as there
would likely bo an inquest.
Cross-examined by Mr. Kinnoy:
As soon as tho accident happened,
ho presumed, tho plantation au
thorities had tho truck repaired.
Ho noticed whoro rails joined
thoro was no Ho under tho joint.
Mr. Howoll had boon u .civil on
ginoor for tho company; witness
thought at this time ho wns work
ing for tho Government road
board; also that ho was drawn on
tho coroner's jury whon ho went
out to tho place. Judged whoro
engine wont off by Bear on tho
track; probed tho roadbed with a
pointed stick, think it wont down
twelve or eighteen inchos.Thought
it was n peculiar thing for Walsh
to say what ho did, smco ho was
running ovor tho track himself.
Had never seen him boforo and
could not say if he was unusually
excited. Tho coroner's jury ron
dorod a vordict that tho accident
happened on account of tho bad
condition of tho track. Did not
remombor that anything was said
by any of tho jury when inspect
ing tho placo about tho condition
of tho track.
To Juror Hall It had been
raining boforo the accident, but I
could not say if that caused tho
rails to spread; do not think it
did, because tho sand would let
tho rain through.
Lia testified lie was a brakemau
on the train that ran off the track
Dec.30,whon Kaanaana was killed.
Tho night engineer of tho mill
and Kalielo, another brakoman,
were on the train besides Walsh
and Kaanaana. Kaholo got off to
turn tho Bwitch. First thing I
saw was tho mill engineer jump
ing off when tho engine started to
turn ovor; ongino was going about
mo spoeu 01 a norso gauoping.
I found Kaanaana under the on
gino, covered with coal excepting
his head; did not hear him say
anything, nor tho defondant
either. Wo dug Kaanaana out
carefully and carried him to the
wagon; ho always appeared to bo
in good health boforo tho ac
cident. Cross-examined by Mr. Kinnoy:
Cars go down grade after passing
tho switch. Walsh put on steam
to start cars, but shut it off when
tho down grado was reached. Ho
usually put on steam after passing
tho placo of tho accident; this time
he did so just before reaching that
spot. Since tho accident tho
cars are run at tho samo
speed as boforo; fifteen cars is tho
greatest number pushed or pulled.
Since the accident thoy havo not
pushed tho cars ahead of tho en-
fino. Coming down that grado
put down two brakes, and did so
that day; did it partly to slow
down for Kahelo to get on again,
and partly becauso it was usual to
put on brakes whon carB got Tun
ning too fast. Walsh did not toll
me to put down brakes. All tho
cars had crossed tho bridge before
tho engine rooked. I took brakes
off No. 15 car first, and then off
No. 14. Do not know that it
caused danger to havo brakes on
whon ongino was working hard.
Did not consider it necessary to
await a signal from tho engineer
before putting on brakes; know
when to do so from long experi
ence, having worked on Kahului
railroad and this ono fifteen years.
Did not run trains fast at that
grade because track waB now;
Walsh did not toll mo so, but I
judged by tho way ho ran tho
gine; tram was not running fast
at tho timo of tho accident; have
worked with Walsh for years.
At 10:05 tho Court adjourned
until 9 o'clock this morning.
Kahelo Papu, a brakeman on
tho train, was tho first witness
this morning. Ho described tho
accident. When tho train wont
round the curve ho was too far
bohind to see how fast it was go
ing; tho train had to go fast to
nBcond tho incline; nover noticed
anything peculiar about that part
of tho road; hard for him to say
how fast u train wont or a horso
Cross-examined: Whon chas
ing tho train ho whistled but en
gineer did not hear him; Lia saw
him and put on tho brakes; wit
ness usually put on tho brakes
whon Lia told him; it was not
usual to put on tho brakes at that
point; ho did not catch tho train,
so did not know whon brakes carao
off; run along and saw train on
tho curvo with engine off tho
track. (Mr. Kinnoy and Intor
preter Wilcox spont a long timo
in vain trying to ascertain from
tho witness whether ho saw tho
cars again, after thoy wont round
tho curvo, boforo tho accident, and
if so whether ho saw Lia. Attor
ney General Smith took him in
hand and elicited tho information
that ho could soo tho front car
whon tho ongino toppled ovor but
could not see Lia.)
J. B. Mulholland, might en
gineer of tho Wailuku sugar mill,
testified in part as follows: Was
