one hour and a half In the Lovu
tpcndthrltt case this morning, tin
lighted the spectators In Judgu

with a subject against which the lib

Mi. Fitch's limitless resources of hu
mor, pleasantry, pathos, sarcasm nnd
Invective, all of which were clothed
In hlB address with the garb of (lowing
eloquence. He sild a spendthrift

"In the trial of this case," said Mr.
Fitch, "a witness was relating nu In

WORK OF MANAGERS AT
Unifoim Scale of Wage for All
Islands is Adopted Laborers
Must Have ''Clean"
The managers of plantations of the
Ishuds ttom Kauai to Hawaii who
hate been In session In the city for the
last two da j s, completed thutr dell-
titration:, this forenoon aud about J t:fiu
(.clock and the Hawaii ilclegates left
In the Klnau. The Maul and Kauai
men will leave for thilr homes In tho
steamers leaving this afternoon. There
was a great deal of discussion at the
meetings held jesterday forenoon nnd
nftcrnoun and the meeting this fore
noon was held for tho purpose of rati
fying the action taken yesterday.
The managers took up two prlnlcpil
questions at tho meetings of yesterday
and these weic decided on fully before
adjournment was taken In the after
noon. In the (list plaru, It was decided
tliut there should be a uniform rate
of wages for the Islands so far as labor
Is concerned. There, was a slight dif
ference In the scale as applied to the
different Islands and these wero agreed
to by all. Kach branch of the plnntn
tlon work the various Islands has
been settled on and, henceforth there
will he no doubt as to the rate that
Is paid. All this trouble experienced
hy men being spirited uwny by runners
for rival plantations Is supposed to
have disappeared by the action taken.
Hawaii has her special rale of wages,
nnd Maul, Oahu and Kauai hate theirs
There was some talk on tho streets
jesteiday afternoon about there being
no representative from Kauai but this
was found to be without foundation.
0. X, Wilcox came from Kauai last
Sunday, the accepted delegate of the
plantation Interests of that Island and
as such, Tie presented himself at the
meeting. He stated that what he dc
e'ded In would bo acceptable to the
K.iual planters and the fact that ho
voted for a uniform rate of wages,
p.nkes this agreement blndflig on the
Knual planteis as well as one those
of the other Islands.
Another thing done at the convention
nf tho managers was to decide that no
laborer shall be cmplojed by any plan
ration unless lie 1ms a clean discharge
from the plantation on vv filch lie work'
hd Inst. If uChas not this requisite
p'eco of paper, he "will not bo employ'
id. This rule was adopted particular
I on account of tho Japanese laborers
who have glvev Hie planters so much
I rouble of late. One of tho managern,
peaking of tho matter this forer.oon
eald; "It is now a question as to
whether wo or the Japaneo nic th
bosses of the sugar Industry, Wo have
nil aweed to do certain filings nnd I
'believe we have organized In such a
substantial manner that we can pro
tect ourtelves from now on. As soon
its practicable, labor bureaus will he
established on the nrlous Islands In
connection with tho plantation inter
A set of resolutions embodying thn
action taken hy the managers ut the
meetings of jewerday will soon bo
drawn up and. as soon ns they nnvi
been printed, they will Re given to thn
press of the city. In these, resolutions
will bo th erates of wages to bo paid
for the different kinds of work for tbt
various plantations and tlio matter ul
the clean discharge papeie. The plan
latton Interests by their action cs
(erday did, In the opinion of the tugir
men, the only thing that there was
left to be dsne under the clrcum-
1 stances The managers of tho plants
tlons are bound by a cast Iron ngrnt
ment and they aro iovv combine I
for their own protection.
NO DECISION TODAY
Chief Justlco l'rear nald this after
noon, regardless of rumors, that
there will bo no decision today cither
In tho habeas corpus cases or tho
matter ot the protest against tho
qualification ot Justlco Perry.
Deputy Sheriff Chllllngworth "Mr. I.vcurgus jou are the pro
prietor of the Union firlll. are jou not?'
Mr. I.)curgus Yes, Blr.
"As such, havo jou eer had any occasion to buy rabbits from
"No sir, I have not."
"uo you know Mr. Wagner? '
"No sir, I do not."
"Hae jou at any tlmb during the pait five months bought rab
bits or Ilelglan hares from Mr. Wagner?"
No sir, I have not."
These samo questions were put to Manager Allen of the Hawa
iian hotel, Chef Wyman of the Pacific Club and the stewards of
these two places and the same answers came back with a regular
ity that showed up the Advertiser fake story on Ilelglan hares of a
few davs ago In such a forcible manner as to mnke somo of fiie rc
, porters In the room feel sorry for the paper that runs so to jellow
It will be remembered that the, Advertiser Inst week, finding
news very shy, started Its reportor Inl staff oft on n hunt after some
thing sensational something to stir the town out of Its apparent
' lethargy. Ono reporter vvent to Mr,. Wagner's place In Kallhl and lo,
on the next morning, rnbhltR were peeping forth from every page
of the paper. Honolulu should arise In arms aalnst this new ene
my to the agricultural Intercuts of the country and Wnsner of Ka
" llhl should lie, dragged through tho streets at the end of a halter for
such a shameful misinterpretation of the law. Iinhhlts galore had
been found on his place.
Hven the police got exe'ted nnd a rearch wnriant and warrant
of arrest were midc out ' .ibhlts were found on Mr. Wagners
place but they were In cagpi. Tho Advcrtlsei had mentioned the
nnmes of the managers nf various hotels and restaurants ot the city
1 who "wero known" to inv bought rabbits from Mr. Wagner nnd. In
consequence of this statement, th men mentioned were subpoenaed
to appear. All this took pi ice on Saturday.
On Monday morning. Wagner appeared In the Police Court but
the case was continued until this morning nt the request of the
' prosecution. After tno majority of tho cases had been disposed of
the Wagner case was tailed nnd oerj one hitched his chair forward
to hear what was to bo said.
Deputy Sheriff Chllllngworth explained thnt the defendant had
pleaded guilty on Monday, but Judge Wllcot irrreoud him. salng
' tint he hnil admitted keeping rau'ilts but he had explained that they
were kept In confinement. 1 his really amounted to 11 idea of not
Then came the witnesses for the prosecution who had been tak-
en away from their places of business to testlf) to sometlflng they
' knew nothing whatever nkout. They took the stand like gentlemen
and said no to over) question put them like gentleman Judge Wll-
cox smiled. Deputy Sheriff Chllllnrworth smiled, evcrjbndy In the
room smiled and then the proscutlng oftlcer, nrlslng, addrcsed
' the court as follows! "At this stage of th eease. I would ask that a
nolle prosequi bo entered In thn rase of Mr. Wagner." The defen
' dant arose nnd wns about to say something about n certain nevvsna-
per that had been the cause of taking him away from IiIb work for
nothlns but a blundering attempt to get n "Mors" when he wns In-
tcrruptcd hy the Judge nnd told t'j leave thn subjeit of rabbltr
alone nnd go homcv. ,
Thus endeth another attempt nn the part of the Advertiser to
fool the public Into believing white U black, that rabbits nre IMglan
hares nnd vice versa and thatwhntevcr Is to be found In Its columns
must be so because the Advertiser s.tjs so. The police have had their
first and last experience with Advertiser clues and Mr. Wagner nnd
his Knllhl farm have ben launched Into Immense popularity at one
fell stroke, through no good Intention of the Advertiser.

which two )oung men Willie Davis
and joung Murk ltobluson are tucked
up In a cell at the police station, the
former being c lunged with shooting a

Doth tho joung men mentioned have

About midway between Walpahu and

couple ot Chinamen coming ntong In

Walpahu and Ah See. n man working
for him. They had been to Honoiillull

Wong Sar states that they were or
