Bcforo tno British Naval Court yes
terday afternoon, Captain Harry
Evans, of tho harbor police, testified
Several ot the seamen of tho ship
Invcrncss-shlre, accused of constantly
refusing duty, testified In collective do
fcnBO ot themselves and mates. Ono
of them had heard that wages were
higher here man where they shipped,
but had not heard tho matter discuss
ed In tho forecastle. Their refusal to
proceed on the ship's voyngo was on
account of tho captain's drunkenness.
Henry Gouldlng, a British subject,
swore ho camo on deck within ten
minutes after tho call for all hands
when tho ship dragged her anchor.
Ho manned tho capstan bar with tho
others, but thero was Insufficient forco
to bring tho anchor up. The mato told
them to hang around tho bar until the
captain returned on board so ho could
see they had done all they could. They
never refused the .awful commands of
tho captain. A man was sent aft to
tell tho pilot they wero willing to ren
der assistance. They offered their Br
;vlces to tho pilot becauso they con
sidered ho was In chargo of tho ship.
Ho heard Capt. Evans testify that Capt.
Pcattlo had declined their offer. The
message delivered to tho man they sent
aft was that the captain would not be
bothered wltn them. They wero ad
vised by Capt. Evans to offer their ser
vices to tho pilot. I refused to trim
ballast tho morning of tho 19th. liavo
testified wo have obeyed nil tho lawful
commands ot tho captain; wo have not
refused duty since tho 12th of Febru
ary; when ship was In peril I was will
ing to assist; the peril was only ten
minutes' worK, lust when uie nncnor
was slipped the ship was out of peril;
I roado no complaint to tho British
consul olthcr at Now York, Kobe, Ta
coma, Sydney or Honolulu; was In tho
ship sixteen months without setting
foot on shore; havo been ashore hero
several times; was not Influenced by
Lewis; allowed nobody to Influence
mo; did not see Lowls, I know his fa
ther ten years ngo (laughter;) never
been In jail In my life.
Hans Jaansen, Russian, testified ho
saw the captain strike tho sail maker,
with his left hand on the left sldo of
his face. Attorney Humphreys re
marked that this was Impossible for a
man to do. Witness said tho captain
had struck nt and threatened to shoot
him, and said tho captain was drunk
because ho smelled his breath. Crons
examined, uo Lwore tho captain threat
ened to shoot blm on tho high seas;
nover saw a revolver In his hand; had
nover uscu back talk to tho captain;
never did anything when the captain
threatened to shoot him; never saw
any mark on the sail maker's face; was
standing alongside tho sail maker when
struck; not been in jail since coming
here. Witness "been drink but never
hero. Witness "been drlng but nover
drunk." Was the only witness of cap
tain's affair wltn the sail maker.
Chris. Caspersen Was ashoro two
or three times here; nobody on shore
Influenced him; been In no trouble,
been careful In attending to duty; waB
on board Conway castlo,nvo minutes
to sco a chum, not in working hours;
did not know what French leave
meant, but said later ho understood it
was going over tho bow; had gono
nshoro by gangway whllo first ofllcor
was walking the poop; If it was wrong
tho first officer's duty was to stop him;
was not arrested, but captain refused
to put him aboard and ho went to tho
pollco station, whero a telcphono mes
sago from tho consul said ho and his
mntcs could not bo called deserters;
had means when ho went ashoro to pny
his way, but did what a good many
people did spend tholr money.
Mr. Davis Havo you killed anybody
In tho Republic of Hawaii? Havo you
stolen anything? No, sir; tho captain
nover mado any complaint to me.

The cuttinz down of the Custom House
Inspectors and guards has seriously crip

Custom House officer this morning. "We

"I understand that the principal ob

"Well, we have Informed the transpor

"The law states that Intending pas

"Then f iture passengers will have to go
into quarantine for the leng h of time?"
"Who will attend.to that little matter?"
"Well, the tiansportatlon companies.

"We have tried to do our best to ac
