Tho decision is unanimous in de
claring H. L. HolBtoin elected by
a legal majority of ono vote
Thoro was a tio in tho vote as
declared by tho Sheriff of Hawaii,
upon tho roports of all tho In
spectors of Election, each of tho
two candidates, H. L. Holstoin
and Alexandor Young, recoiving
127 ballots. A potition'was forth
with filed by Holstoin claiming
that two illegal ballots had boon
cast and counted for Young,
and praying that tho decision of
tho inspectors of tho precinct
whore such ballots wero cast bo
rovorscd,a that tho said ballots bo
declared illegal and void, and that
tlio petitioner bo declared tho duly
idnotod Bunator for tho District.
Aloxandor Young thoreaftor fil

Mr. Young lator filed an uuswor
to tho potitiou of Mr. Holstoin,
with similar allegations to those
of hisown petition, on tho ground
of which ho claimed that his op
ponent's petition should bo dis
missed. Aftor argument by counsel on
both sides as to procedure, it was
eventually decided to await tho
answer of Holstoin to Young's
petition, thon to consider both
petitions and answers together.

tions of many moro illegal ballots

Young. CouiiboI for Young raised
tho point that HolBtoin was burred
frm tho advantage of having
considered any illegal ballots not
montioned in his petition. Oppos
ing counsel hold that tho Consti
tution required tho Court, upon
nn oloctiou being contested, first
to ascertain if a legal election had
boon hold, and1 if so thon to de
cido who was elected. Tho Court
decided in faor of tlio latter con
tention, ami proceeded to an in
vestigation of all tho ballots cast
at tlio olection. In its
ruling tho Court hold
that election contests tiro not
strictly between tho contestants,

One bnllot for Holstoin boro a

considered as not un intentional
