RIGHT TO JOIN HUSBAND
Kut Yong, NinetMn Ytir Old Wife

The Chinese cases now coming before
Judge Estee are ot a character, that tax
the heart as well as the mind of the
Court. Some of them'ospeclally appeal
to the humanity of the Judge, whatever
the merits may be at law. The case of
Cut Yong, a nineteen yar old married
Chinese woman, who Is now being tried
In the Federal Court as to her right to
reside on American soil, brings to
light a prety romance which the stern
requirements of the Exclusion Act
Thc'taklng of cvldencbwas conclud
ed yesterday nnd argument of attor
neys has teen set for next Tuesday.
Tic defendant bases hr right to re
sldo here upon two grounds: first, that
she was born' here; second, that bIio Is
married toa Chinese merchant, who la
a prosperous United States citizen.
Witnesses testified that her husband
was born or this Island, that he be
en nic a citizen of the Republic and that
he Is thereforo a citizen of the United
States. The charming little woman
It absolutely sure that an American
citizen has a right to hate his wife re
side with him.
The prosperous husband Ia41r. Tin

the country and came to Honolulu
when he was eight or nine years of
age. Here he played with little four-scar-old
Kut Yong until Bhe was taken

mad: a trip to Chlni himself nnd
found his former playmate. At sight
their old time childhood affection
blazed up and n wedding followed.
Now that she wishes to Join her young
husband In helr native home, trouble
mountain high confronts them both.

Aside from the usual statistics the

mate of the bark Adderley which was
the last vessel to speak the ill fated
ship John McDonald supposed to havo
blown up, killing all hands when near
the coast ot California The Adder

quarter of n mllo of one another and
exchanged dgnals. After telling who
they were and where bound tho Mc-
Douald set the signal "ship on fire."
This was read by mate Gougli who re
ported It to Captain Derqutst. The
captain thought the mnte had made a
mistake nnd as the McDonald did not
ask for assistance, the Adderley pro
cceded to Newcastle.
At the time the McDonald was spok

the big Island. ' . jf.
It started with the Tie already re
ported from Ookala and Kukalau early
this week, and has continued to burn

ot the long continued drought, tbo

The entire population of the district
Is-out fighting the flames and trying
to keep the flro out of the cane. Up to
last accounts .they had been successful.
No attempt Is being mafic to enrrk the

the cann free.
Manager Lydgate ot Hamaku.i who
was on his way hero In tho Maul decid

the extent ot the conflagration and re

whole country Is so dry from the long

The loss will be about 130,000 betwcci

the transfer of the f J31.OO0 belonging to the Chlneso Immigration Trust
