HAYAL COURT CONTINUED.
(CciiiIIiiiumI from imno 1.)
I Iiik that ho would plead i;ullty: had
plonded guilty of iisIiik Insulting Inn-
'kuiiki'i Ik en iikIkiio six or eight times
'hoic, noer been unrated: miido no
complaint to consul liernilHo ho had
i honed to k homo quietly In tho bIiIii
to his family In England; they did
iniiUo a complaint when tho consul
enmo n board: If ho had icported tho
captain's misconduct at
od It would havo made a pood deal of
Cnspcrscu volunteered more cvldonco
to piove tho captain's misconduct on
December 14. Ho denied to tho court
thnt ho, Caspcrriou, sworo nt tho green
sailor or struck him when aloft, mid
admitted thnt tho loss of the man was
an accident with no blame attaching to
Mr. Humphreys cnllcd the captain to
read the log entry of the accident,
which showed that Harry Miller broke
his neck and somo limbs In falling,
then tumbled overboard. In answer to
questions, Copt Peottlo sold ho was j
not drunk on December 14, and never '
was drunk nt sea In his 21 years ns
First officer Clark, second oulccr
Ross and third officer Vaddell each
testified ho never saw Captain Pea.tlo
drunk on board tho ship.
Mr. Humphreys called attention to
the evldcnco that tho British conpul
was with tho captain half an hour after
sailors said ho was Intoxicated on Feb
ruary 12. The consul and his col
leagues of the court could therefore
Judgo of the truth of tho charge.
Mr. Davis, tho caso being now all
In, objected to any of the testimony
going to England because none of tho
witnesses had been sworn on thu Bi
ble nccordlng to the British practice.
Captain Jones replied that tho prac
tlco In England was to glvo tho oath
on tho Prayer Book.
Mr. Humphreys said ho could pro
duce authorities to show that the mods
was Immaterial. A Chinaman rould
he sworn In a British court on a 'be
ADDRESS FOR DEFENDANTS.
Mr. Davis, In opening his closing ad
dress for tho defendants, mentioned
tho unavoidable absence of a naval offi
cer In the composition of tho court.
With the exception of the president all
of tho members wero masters of mer
chant vessels, but ho wished to ac
knowledge the kindness and considera
tion shown him by tho Judge through
out the trial. Ho presumed that somo
members of tho court wero sailors
themselves nnd hnd to work ihclr way
up. Ho had known Judges pometlmcs
to forget that they wero lawyers, but
fow men who had arisen from humble
beginnings forgot the trials and tribu
lations thoy had encountered. Tho
ship Invcrnrss-shlro was In the har
bor of Honolulu, but through no fault
of these men she dragged her anchor.
Ten minutes after tho ship dragged her
anchor theso men were asked to turn
to and save tho ship, which thoy did.
It was tho evidence of the prosecution
thnt when tho vessel was drifting at
sea the captain refused the nsslsr-inco
of theso men. No continuous refusal of
duty was there. Wero they not to take
theso matters Into consideration nnd
glvo these men the benefit of tho doubt.
Captain Peattle's refusal of their as
sistance was a wrong act which should
not havo been done on a British or any
other vessel. Tho liberty of these men
was In their hands ns much ns tho
property of rich shipowners. One innn
In Englnnd spent his Hfo to better tho
condition of sailors. No amount of
cloquenco on the part of his learned
friend could do nway with tho testi
mony of Captain Sanders, who was
tho prosecution's own witness, that tho
captain refused tho services of thoia
men. Tho speaker believed that tho
captain did strlko tho sail maker. Ho
, Imprisoned him and struck him with
out Justification. WnB not the object
of tho British Paillament, In provld-
i Ing for n court of Inquiry In n forolgn
country, tho redress of tho grlovnnocs
of tho sailors ns well as to enforce tho
lawful commands of tho captain. Tho
captain violated tho law when ho
. struck that man nnd when ho Impvls
soncd him, nnd ho neglected his duty
j when ho refused the services of theso
men when offered. Not one man In a
hundred who drinks, but It gets ho
best of him sometimes. Captain Peat
tlo Is no more angel than anybody else.
If ho old not drink ho could not get
drunk. I hellcvo ho was drunk, per
haps not more thnn onco. Thero was
i no proof that theso men wero Influenc
ed on shoro. If tho captain threatened
to shoot, or If ho struck any man on
that ship, under tho British law they
j could not bo held. It tho ovldenco of
Sanders was believed thoy must dls-
cnargo the men, hecnuso ho was a wit
ness for the prosecution. If th" men
wero convicted their Imprisonment. If
on land would bo through tho courtojy
of tho Hawaiian Government, nnd If
on tho ship under tho custody of tho
captain. They should not bo given '.he
maximum penalty. If they had onod
I It was because tho captain was Injudi
cious. Tho liberty of n British subject
was as sacred In tho eye of the law as
tho property of the richest merchant.
What had mado tho Emplro great was
becauso It had protected Its subjects
I in every ianu. in conclusion he quoted
Lord Palmorston'8 remark: "I do not
know Pnclflco, but I know ho has been
Insulted In tho streets of Athens, and
, tho Government of Greece must make
ADDRESS yFOR PROSECUTION.
Mr. Humphreys, on rising to, closo
for the prosecution, said his experience
was that tho man who worked up to
tho top In any profession did not for
get his trials and tribulations. The
I presumption (of Innocence until guilt
I waa proved was American law. being a
valued Inheritance from England. If
the court could soe a weak link In tho
chain of proof against these dofen
, dants, ho himself would rejoice in their
acquittal. Tho court having duo ro
gard to tho men, nnd weighing all tho
clicumstnnccfl cnrcfully, could not re
view tho oldcnco without being con
vinced not only that It sustnlned the
charge but would sustain tho higher
and graver charge of meeting. It was
not necessary for mutiny to knock tho
captain In the head. Their marching
to tho forecastle laughing and Jeering,
while tho ship, property of British sub
jects, and their own lives were In peril,
mndo them guilty of mutiny. Their
contumctlous lnngungo proved that'
they were in conspiracy aboard the
ship. Their appointment of a spokes
man showed conspiracy to overthrow
nnd to wrest from that captain his au
thority. They refused duty when tho
consul went aboard. Every order from
n pilot must come through the master
of the ship. It tho captain was n self
respecting man, as ho had proved him
self to bo In thnt case, he would Ignoro
any overtures mado to him nt second
hand. Ever- one of them declined to
obey the captain when the ship was In
peril. Tho mnn who had showed ho
was at the head and front of the of
fending testified himself that when the
ship was lu peril he sent the captain an
Insulting message. I believe that these
men knew that they might disobey or
ders and not be punished under Ha
waiian lnw, for It Is a most deplor
able fact that this country has no law
to punish such offenses on a foreign
vessel. I believe that under British
law these men have forfeited any wages
coming to them. If they hove not for
feited every dollar of their pay, then
all shipping business would bo para
lyzed at this port Tho losing of six
days' pay with a short Imprisonment
was Just what these men wero playing
for. They had talked it over In the
forecastle. The speaker commented on
tho damages to the ship amounting to
Mr. Davis objected that no details of
damages appeared In evidence.
Mr. Humphreys replied that coun
sel opposite having neglected to cross
exnmlno Captain Pcattlo on this sub
ject was prevented now from object
ing to his statement of tho amount of
dnmages. Not only tho damages to tho
ship, ho went on, but tho captain would
loso tho dlfferenco between tho articled
wages of $15 a month to these men nnd
the 25 rate of wages at this port. Tho
Rhodlan law 900 years B. C. made a
seaman responsible for Injury done by
deserting his vessel, and tho same pro
vision came down through Roman and
English to tho American and German
law of today. It waa not necessary to
answer tho chargo of drunkenness
against the captain. Tho chargo was
contrnry to nearly all tho evidence,
and tho circumstances all went against
It. Tho evldcnco showed that Captain
Pcattlowas a very tolerant ship mas
ter. His calmness when men came up
to him with threats and concealed
sheath knives showed this quality of
Mr. Davis asked the court, nt tho
conclusion of tho trial, It thero was no
means ot having money provided to
pay the counsel fees of theso men.
President Hoaro answered that ho
could not say anything on that mat
ter until Judgment was rendered. He
then ndjourncd tho court until 4 p.
m. on Saturday.
GREAT GOLD FIELD.
A letter from Perth, West Australia,
contains the following remarkable
figures, which show the combined
growth of West Australia as a gold
producer. They Indicate by what leaps
and bounds this wonderful field Is ad
vancing month by month, from a small
beginning. For tho llvo years specified
tho gold yield of West Australia was as

Tho gold yield for West Australia for
four months of 1899 was:

Tho value of tho production for tho
month of October was about $3,S5S,

tlro yield of 189"G. Tho record month
for tho Rand, which is a much older
field nnd carries a far greater amount
of capital, was In round numbers 408,
