down mi opinion yeatordny after
noon in tho enso ofEdwnld "Wood
wnid iiynitiBt tho Hopublio o Ha
waii on a writ of on or. Tho
Woodward cr.60 bids fair to bo-
como celebrated in tho nunnla of
Hawaiian jurisprudenco and its
hiBtory, bo far is horowith givon.
Tho defendant, Edward Wood
ward, graduated with first honors
at Oahu Collego a few years ago.
A few days afterwards ho was ar
rested ou a chargo of seduction
upon complaint of a woman somo
two yeais older than himself. Ho
was tried beforo Judge Perry in
tho District Court and sontenced
to imprisonment for ono year. Ho
appeided tho case to tlio Circuit
Court and at the next term a jury
trial was had beforo Judge "Whit
ing. In this trial tho jury dis
agreed and tho case went over. In
tho meantime Judgo Mngoon had
succeeded Judgo Whiting and tho
Becoud trial in tho Circuit Court
took placo beforo him. At this
trinl tho jury found tho defendant
guilty and liowas again sontenced
to ono year's imprisonment.
After tho trial A. S. Humphry's,
attorney for tho defendant, took
tho case to tho Supremo Court on
a writ of error, allegiiiK erroneous
instructions to tho jury by Judgo
Magoon. In tho opinion handed
down yesterday tho Supremo
Court sustains tho writ and ord
ers tho case sent back to tho Cir
cuit Court for retrial.
The Byllabus of tho decision
reads as follows:
When a criminal case enti
tled tho "Eopublic of Hawaii
vs. A. 13." is prosecuted by
private counsel, the Attornoy Gou
eial's authority to prosecute is
presumed, and tho constitutional
provision that "prosecutions shall
bo carried on in tho name and by
tho authority of tho Eopublic of
Hawaii" is complied with.
An oxcoption to a ruling of tho
court in tho progress of a trial
when duly noted and allowed may
bo assigned as a grouud of error,
notes as well as bills of excep
tions being made, by statute on
writs of error, pait of tho record
for tho purposes of error. Tho
chargo of tlio court being made
by sec. 2, chap. LVI of tho LawB
of 1892, a part of the record, if
duly excepted to and exception al
lowed, may bo tho subjoct of a
writ of error.
An instruction that, aftor ovi-'
donco of acts of unchastity of a
prosecutrix committed repeatedly
and within a year or two prior to
tho alleged seduction, reformation
may bo presumed without proof,
after a roasonablo lapso of timo,
hold to bo erroneous.
On this last point tho court say
in thoir opiuion: " Evideuco was
introduced by tlio defenso of re
peated acts of sexual intercourse
with several porsous within a year
or two prior to tho alleged seduc
tion. This, if bolioved, would
show tho uuchasto character of
tho prosecuting witness prior to
tho act upon which tho prosecu
tion was based, lu lobuttal sho
domed tho acts of sexual inter
course, hut offored no ovidonco
to show that sho had reformed.
Wo thiu k tho
instruction of tho court on
this point was erroneous. It
authorized tho jury to find
that tho prosecuting witness had
committed repeated acts of Bexual
intercourse with several porsous
within a year or two of tho alleg
ed seduction and then further fiud,
from tho more lapse of that year
or two of timo, regardlosa of other
circumstances and in the absence
