AN URGENT MATTER.
It it) tho belief of the Bulletin
Unit the proposition to officially
establish the status of Hawaiian
coffee is ono of tho most important
matters, affecting the welfare of
this country, which have over
been submitted to tho public. It
is a matter, too, in which time
must not be lost for taking action.
Another conversation had by tho
writor with Mr. Cookburn, of tho
Kona coffee region, gives material
for further promoting tho cause.
It is tho opinion of that gentle
man that an effort should bo made
to bring tho coffoo growers to
gether at Houolulu with the least
possiblo delay. lu his na
tural modest he suggests
that tho initiative should be
takeu by a group of city residents
interested iu tho industry. Coun
try need not wuit for city, nor
city for country, however, but if
Mr. Cookburn and ono or two
other coffee moti from the grow
ing localities, who are iu town,
would confer with somo of tho
city fraternity, the ball might be
sot rolling at once. Probably tho
steamer people, who havo no
small interest in tho development
of coffoo, would bo willing to grant
special rates of passago for a cou
voution of coffoo growers at the
capital. Such a convention would
have for its main purpose tho con
sideration of a schomo, to
be enacted at next session
of the Legislature, of securing
u regular grading of Hawaiian
coffee, under government guaran
tee aud safeguard against adulter
atiou. It is becoming every day
more apparent that the conditions
of the industry now existing are
stimulative of quantity irrespect
ive of quality. To roverse this
tendency should be the main ob
ject of tho proposed convention.
Lot quality bo tho first considera
tion, and the result would be an
immediate enhancement of prices.
A firm and unfailing doraand
would, iu short, bo created for Ha
waiian coffuo at prices that, to a
great extent, would be dictated by
the producers themselves.
With Buoh a status as
to quality established for our
coffee, increase in quantity would
follow as naturally as water fiuds
its level until every available aero
of coffoo land would bo in high
cultivation. Unless time bo takeu
by tho forelock, howcor, influ
ences that are now operating will
destroy tho opportunity. Without
Bomo system whereby tho coffee
industry can bo placed upon its
own feet, so that every producor
on however small a soalo shall
recoivo tho duo reward of his eu
tei prise, it is only a matter of
timo whon servilo laborers will bo
the only coffee planters, and tho
outiro coffee interest bo but a
companion pioco to country store
kooping moroly tributary to a
few largo mercantile establishments.
FOB CONTEMPT OF COURT
DAVIS 'fWKNTY.FIVK DOI.I.AIt.H.
inliliilelit plMililti llir Ircult Court
runnciio In Honmrki
Whon the jury trying A. L.
Morris for importing opium ro
I tiroti to confer t,eir verdict last
night, Judge Perry called Geo.
A. I)avi, attorney for tho defend- i
ant, to the bar and requited him
forthwith to show cause why ho ;
should not bo committed for con i
tempt of court.
Mr. Davis asked for a specifica- ,
tion of tho charge, what language
ho had held to tho court which
could be construed as contempt.
Judgo Porry answered that it '
was not so much in actual words,
but iu their effect aud, especially, '
iu his bearing and conduct, that j
ho had offomlod. If it woro tho '
first or tho' second time ho might j
lot it pass, but Mr. Davis had I
been a persistent offender, and I
the Court could not do loss than
fiuo him twonty five dollars.
E. P. Dole, Deputy Attorney
General, had in tho meautimo in
terjected a plea for leniency, say
ing that Mr. Davis's faults woro
those of a generous and impulsive
nature. He was interrupted by
Mr. Davis onco, saying he wanted
nobody to plead mercy for
him. If he was shown
to be guilty ho would take his
Mr. Davis, on hearing the son
tence of tho Court, asked if he
would bo allowed until next
morning to pay tho flue. Then
rising ho pulled out his pocket
book and, producing a currency
bill, said he would pay tho fine
now. He laid tho bill on Clerk
Thompson's desk, saying ho paid
the lino under protest aud appeal
ed to tho'Suprome Court. Tho
Court had not noted the alleged
contempt whon it was committed,
ho said, and ho had oboyed the
Court when checkod iu his argu
ment. Judgo Porry handed down a
mittimus to the clork,giviug the of
fending attorney into the custody
of tho Marshal until tho fino was
Iaid. Marshal Brown was pre
sent as consulting counsel in the
hopiuui case. At this juncture Mr.
Davis took back his money, say
ing ho would rely on a writ of
habeas corpus for bringing tho
mattor before the Supteme Couit.
Judgo Perry then retired to Iub
Mr. Davis afterward came out
iuto the lobby, whero tho prose
cuting counsel aud newspaper
men, with witnesses and specta
tors of the triul, wore congregated.
Addressing tho Bulletin repre
sentative in the hearing of all he
"I want to givo you tho cir
cumstances of this affair, so that I
may send papers with a truo ac
count of it home. Ono Xavier an
informer gave evidence of a con
versation he had with Morris a
year or so before the alleged im
portation of opium. I objected
that it was not evideuco iu this
case, and would not bo accepted
as evidonce iu such a case in
eithor America or England. For
this Judgo Porry has fiucd me
Mr. Davis wondered what hard
labor Mr. Low would put him at
if ho wont to jail. Tho Bulletin
man voutured to offer tho Govern
ment CO cents a day for his ser
vices in writing editorials on an
nexation or jurisprudence, while
tho puyer of tho wogos took a vaca
tion trip to Hilo. Marshal Brown
retreated beforo tho approach of
tho aggrieved attorney through a
window opening on tho balcpuy.
Mr. Davis roturned to tho court
room and drotv up an affidavit of
tho contempt proceedings which
ho swore to beforo tho clerk.
This ho asked leave to filo in
couit when Judgo Perry had dis
charged tho jury on their dis
agreement about 11 o'clock. Mr.
Davis oiled tho law of contempt,
where it showed that the offense
couM bo purged, for instance, by
showing absence of intent or by
apology. Ho would apologize to
tho Court, and now did so, for
saying that ovidonco admitted by
tho Court was not ovi
donco. As a mattor of faot, ho
said that ho had but expressed his
belief that it was not evideuco.
Ho admitted that ho should not

havo put his opinion against that
of tho Court, but should havo
kept it within his own breast.
Mr. Dole again pleaded strong
ly with tho Court, for ti lemission
of the fine, asking it us a personal
favor to himself. Mr. Davis was
an honoiablo man, who said what
he had to say in prcenco of tho
Court. Ho wus ti well equipped
lawyer, a ciedit to the bar. His
faults were admitted, but they
wero those of an impulsive and
generous nature. Tho speaker
was sure that this would bo a use
ful warning to the offender.
Judge Perry was roleutloss,
however, saying if it was for oven
the second or third offense he
might remit the peuulty, but Mr.
Davis had offended the Court
many times, aud repeated apolog
ies did not amount to anything.
If it was a merely personal matter
it might be passed over, but tho
dignity of the Court would havo
to bo protected. The mittimus
would have to staud.
Mr. Davis weut forward still
protesting dud paid the flue.
This morning Mr. Davis sought
another interview with the Bur.-.
UU'IN repieseutative, when ho re
peated his protests against tho
treatment accorded him by Judge
Perry. Ho consideit-d that lie
showed much less disiespeet to
the Court than the Judgo who
had punished him had douo him
belt in a recent case.
Ho roforred to the mattor of tho
so-called Portuguese riot, saying
that Judge Perry had on the 19th
of May found a truo bill, on tho
indictment presented by tho
Attorney General against the de
fendants, yet tho samo Judge as a
private citizen mado affidavit on
the 27th of May to tho effect that
the indiscriminate and reckless
conduct of the police had caused
tho "so-called Portuguese riot,"
as he styled it in such affidavit.
The Supreme Court refused to
grant a new trial, Mr. Davis says,
"on the affidavit of the Judge who
exercised the functiou of a grand
jury and passed upon tho case."
