AinoDg introduotions received
was one to Mr. Morton, who was
Secretary of Agriculture in Cleve
land' Cabinet. Saturday week wo
attonded tbn Jaskioniau picnic at
Syudiott7 Park, South Omaha.
Wo Heard Champ Ulark, tbe great
Missouri stumper for democracy
and member of Congress, then ft
few remarks from Bryan in tbr
afternoon. Tbe prorono of Bry
an's principal speech in tbe even
ning glued s to tbe sward.
'lUe great "sixteen to one"
obampion appeared again at 8:80
p. m., aud was reoeived with up
roarious applause and cries of
"Wel ka hso." It was a rare
treat to hear tbe free silver leader,
at ha aonnrlod tho hattln n,-y nf thfl
, Chicago platform to summon all
tbe "forces of reform," as he put
It, for the fray of 1900, and des
canted in almost heavenly phrase
- upon tbe aooessory issues of
trusts and imperialism.
"1 do not want to see," be concluded-
in trumpet tones, "tbe
statue of Liborty Enlightening
tbo World" in New York harbor
sent back to France, but I want to
iseo erected in Manila harbor a
new statue of Liberty enlighten
ing all the Orient."
Before tbe speaking began in
'the afternoon, tho Hawaiian re.
preBeotatives Bought a local lead
er through whom to present
Messrs. Bryan and Olark with tbo
'Government Handbook and the
two last issues of tbe Paradise of
'the Pacific They were introduced
to Attorney General Smyth of
.Nebraska, who kindly suggested
that it would be better for us to
preseut the literationa to the
gentlemen in person. MrSrayth
conducted us before the meeting
to Mr. Olark, and at reoess to Mr.
Bryan. The Democratic orator
reoeivad us very affably and amidst
a through pressing around him to
shake hands spent some minutes'
irt pleasant conversation witb ub.
He remarked that he bad met our
Mr Thurston. In answer to a re
mark about the pleasure of an op
portunity to see and bear him, he
intimated that his main speech at
Omabu on that ocoasiou would be
delivered before a nominating con
vention the following Tuesday.
It was a great pleasure, when
Tuesday evening came round, to
have the company of Senator
Waterbouso and family, Rev.
.Moists Timojeo and lSzera and
Miis Nape at tbe convention in
tbe Orpbeum theater. A re
quest to strangers at tbe door
procured the Hawaiian party ssats
together in tbo placo of the gods,
just over the heads of delegations
from various counties. There was
a botutiful uproar in the conven
tion as we settled down. On the
stage nnd tbe main floor, as well
ao iu tbo gallery, moat of the offi
cials and delegates were in their
shirt slnevoB, tho evening being
very Bultry. Tho chairman's gavel
was Ivating a tattoo nlraoU incos
santly on tho tablp, n hundred
delegates wore bowling enoh for
recognition. Abovo tbe clamor
arose a voioo liko uuto that of a
very patriotio citizen of Honolulu
so muoh liko it that one of the
Honolulu contingent expressed
surprise that "they didn't put P.O.
It is a wonder Honolulu wasnjt
put out when the clamor was
heightened, from the top of the
gallery, with yells of "Wela ka
bHo," "Auwp," "Matai," etc
After former Governor Silas A
Holcomb bud been accepted from
tbe Populists as tbe fusion nomi
nee for Supreme Court Judge,
loud ories for Bryan brought the
orator forward, ibis shortly before
ten o'clock. HiB speech whb but
slightly amplified from that of tbo
picnic, but the delivery was much
raoro impassioned. At all events,
wo beard Bryan at nearly his best
-be needs the antagonism of de
bate to fully develop his powers
of oratory aud nnno of un wore
disappointed nor given any other
impression than tbnt, whatever
might be said of his theories, the
man himself is as honest and ster
ling a Bgn re as evor appeared iu
United States politics sinco Wash
ington. Papers have been forwarded
with rpport of the victory of
Harold Dillingham and Albert
WaiortiouHH in tho swimming
match here last Wednesday. As
Dillingham only came off the
train that mm nine, bis winning
of first medal was particularly
a matter of pride to bis friends.
Besides, the boys had only want
ed to enter the fifty yards race,
but, when told there were too
many kids in that for bin obap-t
liko them, they pluckily entered
for the bundrpd ratber than miss
the chance of sport at tbe Expoii
lion. Jaok Maua of the Hawaiian
hula troupe also defeated a pro
fessional swimmer from an aquatic
ido show in the 150 yards raoe.
Jaok is going to swim against tbe
champion of tbe tanks tomorrow

please excuse any more for this
That tho horseless carriage has
come to stay is best evidenced by
the inability of American manu
factures to fill orders. Manufac
tories are running night and day
and still they are not up to the
orders. A gentleman who order
ed a boreolouB carriage several
months ago baa been waitiua im
patiently for bis "new machine."
A letter from the American Electric
Yebiole Oo. with which the oder
was placed calls attention to tho
faot that horseless carriage, raanu
faoture is a new industry aud tbe
raw material has to be made spe
cial. With special castings, spe
cial wnai not and rush
orders, completing orders in
time to satisfy demands is prac
uoauy impossible, it was pro
raised that what will probably b
tbu first horeless carriage i i Ho
nolulu was to be shipped from
Obicago Sept. 4th, and may be
expeot'.'d to arrive early iu Ooto
ber. This with tbe promise of
thp Automobile Company that its
carriages will he iu operation here
tbe oarly part of the year gives
Eromiflu of tho horseless vobiole
eing in common use in Honolulu
within a very short time.

DR. N0BL1TT IN COURT
Appears On the Charge of Practicing
Without a License.
Arguments of Attorney Hankey and Marshal
Brown-Judge Wilcox's Decision De
fendant Found not Guilty.
Dr. W. S. Noblitt apparod in
tbo Police Court this forenoon on
tbe charge of practicing medicine
without a liceuBO. Ho was repro
souted by Humphreys & Hankey
Marshal Brown appeared for the
Various letters wore placed io
evidence and witnesses examined
by tbe prosecution. No defense
was put on and Attorney Hankey
moved for tbo discharge of tbo
He contended that, accordion to
tbo Penal laws there wni abso
lutely no provision tuado for tbe
punishment of a man who, having
bad his license revoked by tho
proper aulhoritio-i, continues tko
practice of medicine. Tbo law
was oertaiuly clear on that point.
A man who had never obtained a
license could certainly ho punish
ed but not so in the caso of a man
suoti as tho defendant.
Just here Attorney Hankey cit
ed an ideutioal caso in one of the
California courts. Th- defend
ant bad been discharged. Per
haps the Legislature bad been
short sighted iu failing to make a
law covering snob a oase as that
of Dr. Noblitt bnt that was neither
here nor there. It was the busi
ness of the Court to decide-au-oor;5'.rg
to the law.
Marshal Brown oontrnded that
such a construction would be ab
surd. Tbe law as a wbnl was
meaut to cover suoh cases. A
phyaician who has bad his license
revoked is certainly in tbe same
poiition as a man who bad never
obtained a license and should he
be punished as suoh.
Judge Wiloox stated that It was
none of his business, what tbe
Legislature did. He would have
to place the striot construction on
the law which was clearly for tho
discharge of the defendant.
After the trial Dr. Noblitt said:
"I havo beat thorn Miouda down.'
I consider Judge Wiloox's deci
sion as being olo.irly a declaration
that the action of tbe Bo-trd of
Health in my case was illegal.
Yes, I shall go on prastioiug now
for I have a right to."
On being told of tho decision a
physician of Uonolula said: "Ac
cording to that, anyone who has
bad ms pbysioian's licensu revok-
e I may keep right on practicing
and tho action of tbe authorities
in suoh caies simply goes for
nothiug. Having decided once as
bo has, all euah cases must bo de
cided in the same way."

WHO GAVE TBE ANESTHETIC?
Th Coronor'e Jury in tho case
of William J. Mardon. tbe soldier
wuo died at Uuena Vista a few
days wince, finished its work yes
terday afternoon aud returned tho
rolhiwinu verdict: "That tbe said
William J Murdon came to his

Dr. Grossman testified that he
did uot give Murdon any anaes
thetic when be called at hiB office
8 ptombor 1. He found tbo fel
low witb a very sore mouth. Upon
then tryinu to extract tbo remnant
of a tnotb Mardon acted in a very
childish way and hence the work
could 'not be done.
Dr. Yule's testimony was, iu
part, as follows: A post mortorn
examination of the body of Mur
don was held iu tbe undertaking
parlors. I sinned tbo death certi.
ticate ' Death was duo to catarrhal
pneumonia induced by au anaes
thetic and in my opiuion death
resulted from the uso of an anaes
thetic." Dr. Olark stated tbathe.did not
know Murdon but that a soldier

of July. No nnaoHthotio was used
on that occasion. He bad used
anaesthetic on soldiers last year.

oomedy "My Turn N-at" was pro
