In effect tbo information is as
Abel Carroira, in tho carta oitv
of a tax collector, was prosecuted
on tho information of Ah Ngoe for
assault and battery upon himsolf.
As Ah Ngeo was employed in tho
household of which A. L. O. At
kinson, assistant to tho Attornoy
Goneral, is a mombor, Mr. Coopor
diroctod Mr. Atkinson to retain
private counsel to prosecute the
case, and so ho employed Mr.
Mr. Humphreys being inform
ed that H. P. Weber, an attorney
employed in tho Attorney Gen
eral's offico, would appear as
oouneel for tho dofendant, Car
roira, sont for Mr. Weber and
"called his attention to tho cross
ethical, official and professional
misconduct, as woll as the legal
and moral wrong of the aiinear-
anco of tho Attornoy General or
any attache of his office, in any
oourt of this ropublio as oonnaol

charged with nn offonao against
the law of tho land."
Later Mr. HomphreyB mol Mr.
Cooper aud protested to him
against Weber's employment in
tho capacity in questioo, whon
Mr. Cooper admitted it was ''an
anomalous caso" and said he
would adviso tho employment of
private counsel to defend Car

for trial on tbo 11th of May, how
ever, Marshal Brown told Mr.
Humphreys that ho was dirooted
by the Attornoy General to allow

Baseball for tho coming season
is a go. Ever sinco tho mooting
of tho baseball enthusiasts in tho
basement of tho Hawaiian hotel a
few nights since, thoso present
havo been hard at work, not only
taking up tho matter but trying to
mako arrangements possible for a
season of games between tho Stars,
Knmohamehas and a team from
tho ranks of tho artillerymen now
Yesterday tho men to whom had
boen assigned the work of form
ing the Star team and tho Baso
ball Association came together in
formally. Tho asaociation pooplo
expressed thoir willingnoas to
allow tho teams fifty por cent of
the gate reoeipts, thus giving them
some guarantee tuat, in tue event
of a BOiison of ball, the men would
not have to go down into their
own pockets at tlio end ot tuat
tiiuo for an amount necessary fo
sohle up accounts, as has herotn
tore been tho chbo. ibis is the
first step toward tho assurance
that the rn will bo a season of sue
oessful ball playing.
The second step is to bo found
in tbo fact that tho artillerymen
aro going to put a team in tho
field. This will not bo confinod
to Battery I nlono as first arrang
ed but will bo mado up of player
from all tho batterios. It stands
to reason that a team from another
country playing against a local
team( will be much moro of a
drawing card than two local toams
pitted ngrtinst ono anothor.
Tho first g'amo will bo played
on Queen Victoria's birthday be
tween tho 8tar and Artillery
teamB. It is hoped that arrange
ments will bo made so that the
season may begin on tho,27th inst.
At all events, there will be a meet
ing of the League in a day or so.
At that timo all arrangements will
bo made. By tbo 27th the play
ors should bo in good form ngain.

Tho officors of tho N. G. H.
havo all but dpfidd to have tho
proposed shorn battle boforo day
break Sunday morning. ThiB will
give tho men a good rest Saturday
night and will mako them eager
for tho fray next day. This ia
not vory well liked by tlio Hono
lulu pooplo who had calculated on
seeing tho battle, na it.makes this
nlmost impossible. They think
that tho officers should change,
the nrrangemant so that the sham
battle can tako place after tho ar
rival at Itomond Grovo of tho
morning train. Howovor, tho
officorB givo a good reason for
having tho battle at tho timb do
cidod on. They say it ia vory
warm in tho vicinity of Rernond
Grovo after the son ia fairlv un
and it would bo asking too much
of tho men to go out in nil tho
heat. The people who want to go
down say that if men are to bo
soldiers they should bo oxpectod
to go out in any kind of weather.
The arrangement for the baltlo
is ps follows: One battalion will
bo sent out ns an ndvauco guard
