Judgo Wilcox had no reason to com
plain of lack of variety In the bill of

sented for his 'Judicial digestion In tho
District Court' this morning. Several
of the cases wcro of especial Interest to
Tal Chcong, for building n. house
without the formality of rt permit from
tho Superintendent of Public Works,
was given tho sound penalty of $100
fine and costs.

Drown said ho was one of many similar
trespassers on the city thoroughfares,
but this man had been twlco warned
by the police without avail had bten
chosen as tho first example In a cm
sado begun yesterday. Defendant
pleaded tho ancient chestnut that ha
didn't know tho law. Tho oourt ob
served that tho practice extended all
tho way out to Palama on King street.
Some of these draymen leased small
plots of ground, covering them with
their houses so that there was no vara
room for their horses, hence their use
of the streets for pasturage ami stable
purposes. Instead of Imposing u Jm
of $10 as requested by tho Marshal,
tho Court would begin with this men
at J6 and costs and adopt an expansion
policy with later cases of the kind.
H. Williams and Jim O'Nell, ap
parently two brlno floaters, had noth
ing to say to the chargo ot nrtrny in
tho street but that they were In liquor.
"Nobody forced you to drink, was
there? Six dollars and cos's each,"
quoth tho Court.
Joe Souza Is a llttlo shaver who took

while going through a window. His
father was called up and lectured se
verely on tho subject of encourage
ment given by parents to their chil
dren. Then father and son wero sep
arated for six months, the son going
to the Reform school. Tho Court re
marked that It was a pity tho oldtlmo
ceremony of referring a boy to a shoe
maker for stirrup oil was not In vogue,
with tho Marshal filling the rolo uf
shoemaker to glvo tho dose In such
cases as that one.
Six natlvo obys were arraigned for
playing seven-eleven, coming up smil
ing to the tribunal. Two of them woio
big enough to support a family by their

these bearing the nugust namo of Ka

was In a quandary. If ho sent theso
boys to tho Reform school they would
bo cutting off their buttons to use In
lieu of coin at seven-cievcn, as ho had
seen a parcel of youngsters playing
tho game with nails at Palama the
other day. Two men and a woman were

A concert for the relief of the Ha

of Wray Taylor In the Y. M. C. A.Jiall
Tuesday evening, March 27th.
It will bo remembered that Mr. Tay

planned to give a frco concert New
Year's evening In tho Y. M. C. A. Iia'l.
On account ot the embargo on public
gatherings the concert was postponed
for two weeks and finally was prac

need ot many Hawallans for assist

ed tho Idea of ressurrectlng tho con

turning the proceeds over to tho la
dles of the Hawaiian Relief Society.
He called on the committee this morn

osition. Mr. Coleman promised the

morning ringing up tho people who
wcro to havo figured In tho program
that was not given.
Tho concert will be giver, and an
admission fee of CO cents charged. It Is

The appropriation being $375,000, thcro
is an estimated excess ot expenses
amounting to $137,443.50. Tho cora
mlttco suggests that tho Board should
request a further appropriation from
tho Council ot Slate of, say, $250,000.
At yesterday's session the Board de
cided to ask for the requlrod quarter
Francis J .Dcrry, attorney for T.

his client had for somo tlmo been Im
proving the sanitary condition of bis
stables, opposlto the Gee Fow stables at
Iwllcl burned yesterday, and that he
had not any connection with U10 lat
ter establishment. His placo was
heavily mortgaged and Its Income was
his solo livelihood. Thcrcforo tho
Board was requested to allow him sufll
clnet time for completing tho sanitary
reformation 01 the stables. Dr. Wood
said that to put the stables In proper
condition would cost about as much as
a new building. Action was deferred,
Dr. Mooro, agent at Hllo, wrote ot
two suspicious cases In that district,
t'ost morteras had, however, revealed
no suspicious bacilli. Ho also trans
mitted a recommendation ot the
Doard's agent at Hllo, that tho period
of quarantine for passengers from Ho-
noiiilu to Hllo bo kept at fifteen days,
and that passengers bo carried from

circles that at present Japan and Rus

not coming In tho ufturc.
Japan Is the only serious obstacle In
tho way of tho Russian Eastern policy.
Japan must have Korea which al

Russian transports pass through
Nagasaki constantly loaded with troops

One of Williams' Photos.
Lcsllo's Weekly for March 3 gives a
full pago to Its "Amateur Photograph
Contest" and nnnounccs that Califor
nia wins. The first prize, a Hawaiian
scene, Is credited to A. W. Barrett of
Rcdlands, Cal., and occupies a good
portion of tho page. As a matter of
fact this "amateur" product credited
to Mr. Darrett of California Is merely a
copy of a plcturo taken by Photograph
er J. J. Williams somo fifteen years
ago. It Is No. 128 In Mr. Williams'
book of Hawaiian views which has
been In his gallery for years. Tho
sccno Is nt Mr. Damon's Moanalua
residence, where a group of Hawallans
surround a collection ot the cala
bashes and wooden utensils used at a
luau. Although credited In Lesllo's as
a Hawaiian feast thcro Is not a sign of
food In tho whole picture. An elderly
natlvo woman In tho foreground ot
tho plcturo died several years ago. Mr.
Williams says that no amateur photog
rapher could possibly havo taken tho
plcturo, slnco ho had tho people spe
cially grouped and no other photog
rapher was anywhere around. Ho calls
It a clear steal. Mr. Williams natu
rally feels gratified that his picture
took tho prize, but tho credit should
havo been given Honolulu, not Cali
fornia. Wnnhlnrtton Correspondence.
