CAPT. KILIAN'S STATEMENT
Reviews the Soldier Case from Start to
Understating With Marshal Brown
Change In Course of Affairs for Which
He Is Not Responsible.
Honolulu, II. I., Nov. 9, 1898.
Mn. Editoh:-T1io " I'nciflc
Commercial Advertiser" of this
morning contains nu article
bended: "Not Liko a Bond, Mar
shal Brown'ri Experionco with a
Captain." I ma not given to letter
writing, do not desire a newspaper
controversy, nud hnvo very fow
spnre moments neither do I wish
to criticise, or tnko n bttuid ncniust,

ahlo Judge whom I esteem vory
highly, for, during my hriof stay
in the Couitroom ho showed him
solf a judge and a man ''according
to my own heart," and a low good
friomU I have rnido during my
brief stay iu this lovely Oily, are
entitled to kuow the truo story iu
full all the fnots in the case.
1 do not want to boast, set my
self aright in tho eyes of the pub
lic or even excuse any of my
actions, for a man judging his own
actions either through h news
paper or o'uorwise, constitutes a
poor dispenser of jii8tico,tboroforo
1 hone vou will allow mo a brief
spaco in your valuable papor
leaving all conclusions, inferences,
deductions nnd final judgmont to
those who care for tho facts only
and nothing else.
List Friday night between 8
and 9 o'clock on my way to Camp,
Lt. Decker, tho Provost of the
Mouutod Guard, stopped mo on
the street, he told mo about two
recruits having been arrested for
having had an altercation with a
Jopaueso, that through tho offi
cious bolmviour of an officer
whom I nfterwards lean ed to
have beau Officor Espind.i thoy
got into troublo with th police,
that they are now arre led, pro
bably will get tho soup poured
into thorn, as tho polico had it in
for thu boys auyway and tho Mar
ehal was just waiting for such a
chance to do it.
Ho stated that ho had had very
little experience in such matters,
that ho did uot know just exactly
what his rights were, that ho did
not waut to make any mistakes
and asked mo, whether I thought
should he make a demand for the
boys and compel tho Mnrshal to
give them up. I gave it as my
opinion that in this case under
tho prosont ciicumstances 1 would
try by kindliest porsuution and
noliev to not tho boys out or tm
clutches of tho polico. Whero
upon the Lieutenant naked me
whether I wmlrt nut ! kind
enough to go with him i h- Mar
shal to fine what could be 'lone. I
somewhat reluctantly e .ua-uted
aud wont with him to th P ilice
We asked for tho MnrniJitl who
granted us un intorviow iu his
privoto ollico whioh ended with
tho following unc'.ir-tunding be
tweon us: "If wo e u get the two
boys to enter a plea of guilty nt 9
o'clock tho following raor iug, tho
Judgo will impose a nominal fin)
and tho Marshal would suspense
Bentence so as to give tho boys a
ohnnco to go on board tho Ari
zona to Manila."
Wo then went to tho jail whore
I had an intorviow with tho boys
who wore vory wrathy at tho un
just, brutal and unwarranted treat
inent thoy had recoivod at tho
hands of tho polico (thoir own
statement) thoy wanted to stay in
jail, havo tho matter fully investi
gated and tho policeman brought

would gain unfavorablo comment
and choap notoriety which would

Tho Marshal agreed to lot thorn
go with mo under the arrangomont
mndo. At 9 o'clock tho following
morning I come to the court room
was given a seat ond for about an
hour or so tho Marshal called up
ovory offendor present, Japs, Chi
namen, Natives and a bunch of
Thinking this strnngo I went
over to tho Marshal who acted as
public prosecutor and asked him
about tho caso of the two soldiers.
Ho said: "Well Captain, I am in
deed very sorry but theso men
must be punished. Dr. Day tho
employer of the Jap who was as
saulted is vory wrathy, sworo ven
geance and insists that thoso ruf
fians bo soveroly dealt with. My
policemeu are soro aud sulky
claiming that I do not stand by
thorn and tho publio is all worked
I ropliod that relying on his
word I have como here, that I
knew nothiug of the merits of the
ciibo that the boys staud ready to
Tho Marshal then asked
tho Court for a contiuueo of
the caso until 2 or 3 o'clock in the
afteruoou to which I replied that
I would spoak to tho boys Grst
and that probably wo could dis
poso of tho caso sooner.
I then advised tho boyB to get a
lawyer proparo thoir testimony
and go to trial as tho Marshal
wont back on his agreement for
whioh I was very sorry and could
not help. They asked mo then to
represent them that they woro not
acquainted with any lawyers and
that they would trust mo iroplict-
ly in the matter, that thoy had con
fidence in me, whereupon 1 stntod
that if thoy would leavo the mattor
to mo I would just go and toll the
presiding Judgo what happenod,
the Marshal heme a sworn officer
of tho Court would certainly bo
held to on agreement eutortd into
iu good faith.
Sol walked up tho aisle asked
tho Court whother ho would allow
mo to make a statement regarding
the caio that had been previously
called up by the Marshel to which
ho very com teouBly consented. I
stated tho agroouient mado the
night before botwoen the Marshal,
Lt. Decker and myself, told him
tho story of tho assault and offer
ed to enter a plea of guilty as
agreed upon. Tho Marshal seem
ed annoyed but as I snoke very
considerately nud gavo no offense
whatever, ho laboriously tried to
mako tho best of tho siturtllou.
Ho informed tho Court that ho
could not force a trial but he in
sisted that tho Court would imposo
uot a very big fiuo noiiher ouo
that was too munll. Tho Court
theu fimd the soldiors $20 each
aud the costs.
I went with theIrshnl to his

do nothing that iu that caso thoy

Seventy of the Single Men Refuse Work

Six Return lo Service Sixty-four

Sixty -four Europeans woro
marched down tho gangway into
the prisoner's yard of the polico
station nt 11 o'clock this morning.
They constituted the greater num
ber of tho singlo men umong the
Galicinn laborors on Oahu planta
tion, and wero pnt iu custody on
the charge of refusing to perform
their contract service.
Sovonty of these Qalicians, who
only arrived hero a few weeks ago
ii) tho hi. 1. (ilado from Bremen,
went on strike this morning. They
domnnded to bo released from
their contract on sundry pretexts,
and Mauagor Ahrons, parleying
with them to no avail, suggested
roforenco of their griovauces to the
Austrian Consul. Thoy promptly
accoptod this proposition. A tele
phono mossago was sent by Von
Heydnbrand, tho plantation polico
man, to Deputy Marshal Hitch
cock, who respondod, "all right,"
and sont two mounted policomon
out tho road to meet tho proces
sion. Mr. Ahrons accompanied tho
officer nnd tho head lunn, Mr. Pat
terson, escorting tho strikers into
town. Thoy conducted them to H.
Hnckfold & Go.'e yard. J. F.
Hackfeld, acting Consul for
Austria, reasoned with the mon.
Paul Isonberg, tho sonior di
rector of II. Hackfold & Co.,
who arrived from Germany last
Saturday, also addressed tho mon.
That corporation is agent of he

tho control of its stock. Reason
and romonstranco woro ineffectual
with all but six of tho men, who,
siguifymg their willingness to re
turn to duty, woro forthwith es
corted back to tho plantation. Tho
sixty-four recalcitriut mou woro
marched to tho polico station nu
dor police escort, and soon wore
duly talliod off at tho hoad of tho
gangway by Turnkey MeUnphy.
Mr. Hackfeld told a ropier
that tho mou complained of ill-
troatmont, and domauded to be
relensed from their contract. He
understood thnt only a very few of
thorn had grievances oL their own,
tho bulk of thorn striking out of
sympathy. Evidently there wero
