Judge Humphreys Says His Case is
Not Exactly Similar to
E. P. Dole's Which
In response to a citation to appear
nnd show cause why he should not ans
wer questions propounded by the Grand
Jury, T, I. Lansing, ex-Treasurer of
the Territory was In Judge Humph
reys' court nt 10 o'clock this morning.
The respondent was represented by At
torney General Dole.
Tho matter was taken up Immediate
ly upon tho sitting of the Court. Tho
report of the Grand Jury upon which
tho citation Issued Is us follows: T. F.

Attended Governor Dolo's councils. Do
not call to mind any discussion of such
charges at these councils; have dis
cussed It with tho Attorney General;
ho did not give me names of persons
Btispected of bribery or corruption, or
of persons who could give evidence of
such practices; Mr. Cooper mentioned
names of such persons; I do not think
It proper to give theno names, they
were given me In confidence; the mat
ter of giving of such Information rests
with Mr. Cooper ntid the Attorney Gen
eral. And for the further reason that

know what may have been done In this
matter slnco leaving ofTlco (may have
been cleared up.)" Upon being re
quested tr give tho names of persons
given to him by Mr. Cooper, the said
T. F. tanslng refused to do so.
Tho answer of Mr. Lansing was read
by Attorney General Dole. It stated
that at the time the conversation took
placo between respondent nnd Mr
Cooper nnd the Attorney General, the
respondent was Treasurer of tho Ter
ritory; that he refused to testify ns to
tho Information glien him by Cooper
and Dole, because such Information
was to bo used by tho Attorney Gen

The Court announced that the matter

Attorney General Dole suggested
that, since Mr. Lansing hnd given the
names of his Informants, his case came
under tho ruling of tho Court In which
tho order to show ennse, against E. P.
Dole, was dismissed.
The Court stated that tho similarity
liad not escaped its attention. How

THE CHARITY BALL.
Honollulu has been treated to In
ferior shows for so long that when a
chance comes to seo a really good show,
tho people turn out nnd crowd the
houses without hesitancy.
Last night thy Klleford Company
played the "Charity Hall" before an
other crowded house, and the vocifer
ous applause showed that the play
lacked nothing In the way of artistic
Carl Herch was good from the first
to the last curtain. Ho was excellent
as the rector nnd, even In the moA
difficult parts, showed to great ad
vantage. Walling as the spendthrift
broker was good. Wymnn as Judge,
Knox was specially good, and kept tho
audience In roars of laughter' when
ever ho was on tho stage.
Mabel Wlerno as tho sorrowful, suf
fering Phyllis Lee, won the hearts of
tho entire audience. Jessie Norton ns
Ann Kruger appeared to better advan
tage than heretofore, nnd won con
siderable applauso several times. Thero
Is no doubt that tho Kllcfords will con
tlnuo to play before crowded houses.
A. Tlmas, J. Gouvcla. two hackmen,
and David Glbbs, a plumber, have been
arrested on tho chnrgo of affray. It
appears from the evidence of eye wlt
nesses that an olllcer of tho Peking,
under tho tnllucnco ot a fow too many
drinks got Into a little altercation with
Timns near tho Pacific Mall wharf. A
fight resulted and, Glbbs stepped In to
help out the ship's officer who, under
the circumstances, was getting much
the worst of it.
It further appears that Gouvcla ar
rived on the scene nnd started In. to
help out his friend Tlmas. Later ou
Archie Gltftllan nnd a Custom Houso
Inspector separated tho men. In thu
mlx-up Glbbs dropped n twenty-dollar
gold piece. This was claimed by Gou
