THE WIDOWWINS CONTEST
Mrs. Kafaookano Has Her Nominee for
Rather Ancient Matters In Cleghorn ?s. Castle -
Estate of Late Mrs. Wilnelm Chinese
Tho widow of the Into J. K. Kahoo
kano won her contest of administra
tion of her husband's estate. Enoch
Johnson, secretary of tho Hawaiian
Land Co., petitioned aa such for letters
of administration, alleging that said
company was a creditor of tho estate.
Mrs. Kahookano gnvo notice of contest
and at tho hearing yesterday heforo
Judgo Sllliman, through Mr. Ballon,
asked that tho Hawaiian Trust nml In
vestment' Company bo appointed ad
ministrator. This tho Court ordered,
tho bond being 15,000. Achi & John
son for petitioner; Kinney, Ualou &
McClanaban for contestant.
In tho caso of A. S. Cleghorn, ndmlu
istrator of Antonio FUlpt., etc., vs. W.
R. Cnstlo et nl., tho defendant Cmtlc
lias filed a lengthy answer. Tho cist
of tho answer is contained In tho fol
lowing points: In 1878 he was letalnad
as attorney for Ana Mormona, widow
of Flllpe, to collect certain funds which
alio alleged to bo duo her by Cleghorn.
After ho had dono this business to tho
best of his ability tho woman had ap
pointed Antono Rosa as her attorney in
Ills place. He had accordingly trans
ferred her Investments to llosa. At dif
ferent times ho had Informed Cleg-
horn that his recourse ns administrator
was against Rosa on his estate, and ho
had actually brought suit ngnlnst Ro-,
sa'B estate to preservo Cleghorn's I
rights. Some of tho property is dill
hung up In tho courts under different
proceedings. Castle urges that now he
should not bo made responsible for tho
negligence of Cleghorn, and calls uttcn-1
tlon to tho fact that Rosa's estate Is
able to pay Its obligation in the matter.
Judgo Sllliman has approved tho ac
counts of F. J. Wllhelm, administrator
of tho estate of his deceased wife, also
tho master's report thereon. Ho Is to
deliver over the personal property,
consisting of shares In stocks, to Mb
hey Ulll Smith I cj, who I found to he
iho sole heir of deceased. The admin
istrator waived credit for over SI 000
expended In Improvements on tho real
estate, also all expenses over receipts
and commissions duo him. At the time
of her death Mrs. Wllhelm owned real
cstnto on tho Islands of Oahu and
Molokai of tho value of about $9900
and personal property chiefly thirteen
shares In Oahu Sugar Co. valued at
11680. P. L. Weaver appeared for tho
administrator, and D. Tj. Marx, as guar
dian ad litem for Frederick Albert
Smith, adopted minor sou of Mr and
tho late Mrs. Wllhelm.
Judgo Slliman today dissolved tho
Injunction and sustained tho demurrer
of defendants in Lum Ah Lee et al. vs.
Ah Soong ct al., a water controvetsy,
but without prejudice to complainants
to bring amended proceedings. They
had forgotten to say where the laud
was and what was taken. C. F. IVtor
son for plaintiffs; Robertson & Wil
der for defendants.

Mr. Achi persisted in his objection.
Tho poor peoplo wero tho greater cuf

Tho occupant of the room lay on his
