BY JUDGE WILCOX TODAY
Poultice Did Not Work-Andrews
Tries to Draw Blood-Settlement
of an Old
The case of Kork Hln, charged with
assault ami battery on Hick I'ul, cnni.)
up In the l'ollce Court this forenoon,
ami It was fully two hours before tho
lengthy testimony of the eight or ten
witnesses was finished. To a casual
obserer, it looked very much as If
theie were a clan war on somewhere.
L. A. Andrews appeared lor tho do
lenilant anil Frank 0. Thompson Tor
During -e testimony there were all
manner of visions of blood. Iron bars,
heavy carpenter's tools, brass knuckles
and the like. The complaining wit
ness appeared In court with an arm
bound up In a quarter of an Inch of
bandages, anu through which the led
of supposed blood appeared in sus
picious quantity and freshness. Tho
defendant had the appearance of an
old mnn Just out of a sanitarium, and
when dunng tho course of the tcstl
inonv, he was made to hare his manly
breast to the coun to show where hi
had been struck by Sick Pul. the rea
son for this was immediately appar
ent. A great poultice with some man
ner of strange and terrible concoction
had been lied on the defendant's chest
with a bandage of red cloth such as Is
used on occasions when the Chinese
'wish to .rlghtcn the o II splilts away
from their abodes.
Judge Wilcox looked carefully for
marks of Violence under that portion
of the body which had been covero 1
b the poultice. There were red marks,
but these wete duo to the nature of thu
cloth which had been used to securo
. J pOMillle.
'I lie prosecution put on nmong lis
witnesses Wilt Wnl. the doss carpci
ter and builder, who Is the cmplo)cr
or both the defendant and complaining,
w lines, and he testified unqualifiedly
in favor of the latter. Tho other wit
nesses told their stories as If they had
been leading them out of a book, and
had the case rested alone on their tes
tlmnn. .ludgo Wilcox could have given
his decision without even a passing
However .there was another story.
The v. ttneses to the defense said
that tne defendant had been struck
by Sick l'ul aud that Ib all that thuv
would fa. Try as Attorney Andrews
would, he could not get them to sny
that they had been nnythlng mote of
the tumble that took place on Frldav
and Satnrnay. Finally, he asked them
one by one If they had been "tnlkln,; '
villi any one on tho outside, nnd, te
c civ lug no for an nnswei he tried ula
best to draw blood from Kork llln'M
nose h their testimony. In this he
succeeded, but Judge Wilcox later on
called his attention to the fact that it
had taken a vast amount of question
log to maw blood.
In summing up the case, Judge Wli
cox said the case was evidently one c I
long standing In which 111 feeling had
been cngendeiod. On the thlnl day
ot the boiling piocess, steam had es
taped and thnie was trouble. Tho.a
'las a brick assault, a chair assault, n
teacup assault and vnilous others.
However It had been proved bevond n
doubt that a vicious assault had been
committed li Koik Hln. The tesll
won had shown an old score. Tho
defendant had. nttei some tumble with
the complaining witness come Imck
nt him with an lion bat. Tho test!
mony of the physician who had at
tended the latter had shown a ei-
had gash In tho arm and an nhralslon
on tlie,slde, caused by some such in
stiument as the bar. A flue of 50 uu 1
costs was Imposed nnd an appeal was
nt once noted.

ARGUMENT BEFORE SUPREME
COURT IS COMMENCED
A. S. Hartwell Attacks the Law on
Ground That It Is Inconsistent
With Constitution of the
The argument In the income tax test
cases was opened this morning by A.
H. Hartwell at the convening of the
court. Mr, Hartwell associated with
W. O. Smith and A. Lewis represent
the petitioners U. 11. Itobertson and
the Walraca Plantation Company, who
are fighting the tnx. Hohcrtson &
Wilder will argue In support of the
vullcllt of the law.
At tho opening ot his argument, Mr.
Hartwell went dliectly Into the basic
principles of thu case. Ho discussed
the Organic Act with icferencc to its
relation to the Constitution of tliH
United States and compared Its provi
sions with the organic acts of other
One of HartwdW I "marks was, that
laws passed by a Hiwallan Legisla
ture under the Organic Act, must not
only not be repugnant to the Constl
tutlon of the I'nlted States, but must
not be Inconsistent therewith." He
referred to the limitations, of neces
slty Imposed upon the taxing powers
of the Territories In the United States
and declared any law of the Hawaiian
Territory, which Is Inconsistent with
the powers ot Congress, ns Interpreted
by the Supreme Court of the United
States. Is Inconsistent with the Amer
lean Constitution While admitting
thnt Congress In the Organic Act for
the Terrltor of Hawaii, had not plac
ed the limitations on the tnxlng power,
which appear In the Organic Acts ot
other Territories, he did not believe
tbe absence ot those limitations war
ranted tax laws which Congress Itself
could not mnke binding.
Following Mr. Hartwell, the argu
ment was continued b A. Lewis who
was Intciiupted by the noon adjourn
ment. It Is the expectation that argument
ou'jioth sides will bo concluded today.
