Judge Estee Decides Two
' FOR THE COLLISION
Decision Holds With That of Hawaiian
Coarts in Cue of Owners of
In the District Court of the United
States, In and (or tho District of Hi
Mull, Judge Estee this morning render
ed a decision In the two admiralty libel
cases: J. S. Low', llbellant, vs. the
steamship Claudlne and the Wilder
Steamship Company, a corporation,
llbellcc; and John Plltz, llbellant,
against tho same defendants.
The first named llbellant sued as
asstngee for the value of the cargo of
the barkentlne William Carson, sunk
by collision with the Claudlne, and the
second one as master of the William
Carson fqr trie value of personal ef
fects of himself and wife lost In the
The decision Is against the libelees
lritoth cases, agreeing In Its law and
reasoning with the decisions of the Ha
waiian courts' In the' case bf the own
ers, pf the William Carson against the
Judge Estee fully reviews, and quotes
largely from the testimony, among oth
er things saying:
"It Is uncontradicted that 'It was s
full minute after the sounding ot the
steokner'a whistle on the Claudlne, be
fore flhe '"truck theCarson: that the
Claudlne sailed over 1000 feet a min
ute; that she could have stopped within
..five hundred feet but did not do so.
Even the captain of the Claudlne testi
fied as hereinbefore referred to. that he
'thought It was possible to stop be
tween the Bounding of the whistle and
the collision. What was possible to
have been done to avoid a collision
should have been dono, and throws
upon the vessel responsible for the
omission the liability for the damace
resulting from the collision.
;;jhe statute laws of the Republic
ofillawnll on the subject of navigation
nrc as severe as those of the United
States, nnd the decision of the Supreme
Court of Hawaii are marked by a
broad and enlightened advance step on
this subject. See the case or Pacifi:
NaUgatton Co. vs. Allen, 7 Hawaii
Hep. 12, and Hind eC al. vs. Wilder
Steamship Co. (not yet reported) wh'ire
the Court especially defended 'the
weaklings of the sea,' the sailing ves
sels, from being run down either b)
, the'carelessneBs'or mistakes of steam
vessels, and maintained the naviga

all the time they hae charge of the
deck.' (Chamberlain vs. Ward, 21 How.
U. B. SC1-S.)
"In conclusion the Court holds that
the William Carson was sailing
southwest course, and all the time
showed her starboard side to the
Claudlne; that her lights were proper
ly constructed and placed and were not
obscured so as to be Invisible to tho
Claudlne, but thit the ssme weic
brightly burning on the night of th
collision, and were lslblo from a point
dead ahead to two points abaft the
beam for a distance of two miles; that
the Claudlne did not have a lookout
on tho night of the collision, which fact
contributed to tho accident; that the
second mate, while acting ns officer if
tho deck of tho Claudlne on the night
of the collision, after decr ing the mov.
Ing lights of the William Carson,
against all precedent, twice left his
post of duty and went below; that the
Claudlne did not slow down, stop or re
verse, or change her course In time to
avoid the collision, when she could
have done- so; that the Claudlne at
tempted to cross tho bow of the Wil
liam Carson when she was In motion
and when such action would neces
sarily lead to a collision; that It the
Claudlne did not observe the green
starboard light ot the William Carson.
It was clearly the fault' of the second
mate acting as officer ot the deck of
the Claudlne; that the William Car
son did not contribute at all to the
collision, but that the same was due to
tho negligence, and unskilful naviga
tion of the steamship Claudlne, for
which the aald steamship and her own
era are liable.
"Let a decree be entered in favor of
J. 8. Low the llbellant for t0S0, with
Interest and costs from the date of the
collision; and In favor ot John Plltz.
llbellant, for the sum of $1162.80. the

been lost by him. together with Inte--

"Nothing Is allowed the llbellant In

does not nppear to tho Court that ha.
was authorized to sue for or maintain

IT WILL PLAY IMPORTANT
PART IN OUR MARKET
Albion Delivered Goods to New Meat
Market In First Olass Condition
Brings Us in Close
Touch With Coast.
The question of ' hsndllng largo
. i .
consignments of food supplies and
transporting the same to the ports of
tho world Is certainly an Interesting
subject. Today the business has reached
enormous proportions, and In many
cases the ocean steamers arc equipped
with refrigerating plants to enable
them to do a freighting In frozen
meats. Others, for the purpose of car
rying the refrigerated meats, etc. re
quired for dally consumption. Most cf
the plants Include an Ice-making ap
paratus to make dally tho quantity of
Ico required for the use of passengers.
In the Installation of these cold stor
age plants on shfnhoard they must be
specially constructed nnd arranged so
that they will occupy as little room ns
possible, and to suit many conditions
of operation that nre met with only on
shipboard, which nre usually sevnto
and trying If the run of the ship U
through or to tropical ports. The
United States Government realizing
the untold benefits hate supplied the
entire Philippine transport service wll.i
refrigerating nnd Ice-making plants.
Within the past few years the regular
lines of steamers to this port havo car
ried more or less perishable goods In
cold storage', but the Increase ot tho
population has justified the putting on
of several lines ot cold'storage steam
era of large carrying capacity.
The Kimball Steamship Company of
San Francisco Jias inaugurated a line
of cold storage steamers, one of which,
the Albion, left here last night after
having discharged her cargo ot fish,
flesh and fowl. The Albion has been
equipped, with the Vulcan Ice Machin
ery Company's direct expansion cold
storage system consisting of four small
Independent plants which can ' be
worked singly or as a whole in any
part of the vessel and capable of car
rying any temperature. It will be Im
possible to go Into the mechanical sltto
of th eAlblon's refrigerating plant, but
It will suffice to say that the entlro
cargo of cold storage goods which were
consigned to the Honolulu Market Co..
Ltd., came out In excellent condition.
In conversation with F. H. Chewy
who has charge of the refrigerating
machinery on the Albion, he had this
to say: "I came to Honolulu In chare.e
of the cold storage plant of tho Albion
for the Vulcan Iron Works In Sa.i
Francisco who are extensive builders ot
refrigerating and Ice making machin
ery. You may state that tho food sup
plies consigned to your local market
came out of cold storage In excellent
shape. Regarding the temperature of
the cold storage rooms I will state that
beef Is kept nt 20 degrees, eggs 32 de
grees and beer about -10 degrees and i
on. Hereafter we will make more rapid
progress In discharging our cold stor
age supplies the delay being due to tho
fact that It could not Immediately he.

SCINEIKR CASE STILL '
Major Ennis Testifies to Bennett's
Statements of Soldiers
At 10 o'clock last night, the Coro
ner's jury In the case of the death of
Dennett, the scout, returned a irII:t
of death by suicide, the exact jtordlug
of which Is as follows: .
"That the said Frank P. TJennett
came to his death at Honolulu; Island
of Oahu. on the Hth dajs of December,
A. D. 1900, from a gunshot wound
caused by a bullet dlschargcd'out of a
revolver held In his own hand with
suicidal Intent." r
In the case of the death of' MI11
Clara Schneider, tho Jury found a mo-e
complex question to deal with. It was
midnight before this body finished Its
deliberations nnd even then, tho'Wm
hers refused to hand In a verdict, say
ing that they wished more evident".
This being tho state of affairs, there
was nothing more, to do but to adjourn
until today, tho Coroner setting the
lime of coming together again at 12
The first witness called to the stand
In the Schneider case was Dr. Shorey,
the chemist bt the Board ot Health,
His testimony dealt entirely with cer
tain white specks which had been
found on the shawl of the deceased
when she was discovered at thV point
of death. It was thought by some of
the Jurymen that the specks were mor
phine but Dr. Shorey exploded this
theory by saying that he had found a
lot ot lime In them and that he be
llced them to be whitewash. Most cf
the spots appeared to have been rub
bed Into the shawl as If ngalnst n fence
or something of tho kind.
II. M. Barnard, tho physician and
surgeon at Camp McKlnley, testified to
the reliability and integrity of the dead
scout, lie did not believe that Bennett
had ever used morphine. No call had
ever been made on him for the drug.
Ho knew of a wound In the region of
the head and he also knew that the de
ceased was troubled with Insomnia. Dr.
Barnard said that the scout was tho
most abstemious man in all ways that
he had ever known. He was strictly
temperate and his mind never ran.tn
women. At the camp, he was regarded
as being every Inch a gentleman.
In regard to money matters. Dr. Bar
nard said the scout had told him he
had borrowed money to assist In the
payment of the expenses of the wife of
a friend nt the hospital. This womsn
tho doctor said he believed to be Mis.
Ottmahn. W. M. Campbell testified to
being acquainted with tho deceased.
At one time she lot him have $300 tn
Invest and about three weeks after'
wards, asked to have the money back
as Bho had a chance to give it to an
other friend who would put It out at u
better rate of Interest. Ho gave her
back the money Immediately.
Major William Ennls. In charge at
Camp McKlnley. told ttie following
story of his association with Scout Ben
nett nnd what he knew of him from
"I have known Mr. Bennett slnto
February last, and have been In Inti
mate association with him. He was
not a drinking man, and never to my
knowledge, or'to the knowledge of any
one I ever heard .apeak of him, took a
drink of Intoxicating liquor, except on
one occasion, when ho had been badly
injured by a horse he had been riding,
and I Induced him to take a drink of
whiskey. He was a man of fearlesi

room to pass by and so did not slow

at Kltcbburg, Mass., has the work of
Inaugurating the method In hand. To
a Bulletin Reporter Mr. Merrlam mvte
the following explanatory statement:
"A classified card Index will be
started tho first of tho year, which will
make a classification ot Instruments
as they are received, and which will
keep tholndexea In a classified form up
"The system to bo used Is that
patented by tho Library Bureau C6ta
panof Boston1. Mass. It is the system
that'-ls In use fa most Eastern regli
irles and quite similar to that used In
many public libraries."
Mr. Merrlam showed tho reporter
cuts of the drawers containing cards
employed In tho system. Ther.e Is t
label on the front of the drawer beir-
lng a family name, such as Brown, aad
a protruding tag on tho card ahowa IM

"There will be two rases containing:
each twenty-four card drawers, pub'l

Mr. Thrum. In answer to a question,
"This starts with the new year. We
shall reduco the old Indexes to the card
