KAU CITIZENS DEMAND
Kan, Hawaii, Nov. 23. In your Issue of tlio 15th ou again seem to take the stand that the pollco depart
ment should remain inactive In murder cases till the public find evidence enough to Insure conviction, and not
till then should ti.cy exert themselves.
I may bo In error, but I hao understood that the duty of the police department Is to Investigate such
rases and search for cldcncc.
I will now state lu answer to yours, that 1 know that Sheriff Androws was told that If he would give cor
tnln assistance to the men who furnished him with nil the evidence In tho Yoshlda case (the police did not get
one grain of It), they could probably gut much more Important evidence, and that ho did not do It. And, ho
far ns Is known In this community, id effort has been mado to follow It up.
It Is nlso known to tho police department that 1 now hat a In my possession evidence that would go far
with Intelligent Investigators In the conviction of tne murderer, and tint they have never asked for It. It Is
theirs at any tlnio that they may desire It, and I further state that If some competent detective Is sent hero
from Honolulu that I believe I can put him on tho track or still more evidence, rind, I think, enough to causa
conviction; but 1 have no desire to meet men that receive my advances with Insult.
I have Interested myself In this case through a desire that Is general hero to solve the mystery of this
brutal murder, and I do not hesitate to say that the whole of tho community, with the exception possibly of the
police, are with me; and I now ask in the name of tho district and myself that the High Sheriff or whoovcr
is in authority will at onco send competent parties to Investigate, and he, as well as your Influential Journal,
will no doubt feel some surprise to know that every prominent person In this district is in sympathy with what
I have here written, and the question Is asked, Why Is an Investigation dodged by the authorities?
Is murder of a Japancso of so little Importance that the authorities treat it with contempt!
The Japanese are In no pleasant spirit and have demanded of Sheriff Andrews more protection and fur
ther Investigation, or they will In mass meeting pass resolutions to be 'forwarded to the proper authorities nt
Washington demanding protection. Whether the acts of the Japanese have any bearing or not Is out of tho
question except so far as It shows that the dlpgust Is general.
You have In your Issuo of thelCth seen fit, as I believe, to unfairly criticise what was done for the
good of the community, and it is only fair that you publish this In answer without cutting out parts that may
seem unpleasant. It. J. GREEN,

Supreme Court Opinions on Two

A ileclslon of a tax appeal court,
though not having the conclusiveness
of a Jury verdict, should not be dis
turbed tor light reason!.
"To apply the eight-year rental rule
(Civil Laws Section 820) to determine
the nlue of the landlord's Interest In
land for purposes of taxation would be
manifestly unfair and unjust where the
land was leased nineteen years ago at
a rental of only $100 a year and la
Dow worth $30,000, although the lease
has twenty-one years yet to run. The
landlord's Interest Is assessed at $7,-

within the time prescribed by tho
statute, and the assessor gives him
further time for furnishing additional
Information, and he furnishes such In
formation and It Is accepted by the
assessor as part of the return, tho lat
ter cannot object on appeal that the
return was not complete In the first
Tho foregoing Is a syllabus ot a de
cision of the Supreme Court on an ap
peal by the Tax Assessor from the as
sessment mado by the Tax Appeal
Court ot two pieces ot land belonging
to tho Dlshop Estate. The first is a
lot fronting on Union square, Hono
lulu, containing 8300 square feet. It
was returned at $30,000; assessed by
the former assessor, Jonathan Shaw,
at $80,000; admitted by the present as
sessor, J, w. Pratt, to be of the fair
value of not over $50,000, and valued
by the Tax Appeal Court at $30,000.
Evidence was taken regarding alua
tlons of adjacent property, but the
Supreme Court finds the evidence rath
er meager on which to base an esti
mate of the value of the lot. This Is
why the court does not care about dis

Mars at a rental of only $100 a year,
the lease hating twenty-one nnd a
half jears ct to run, while thero Bcems
to be no dispute that the land unin
cumbered Is worth $30,000. It Is upon
this phase of the case that the court
declares the principle already quoted
In the sltabus. In the body of tho
opinion the court says that the eight
jear rental rule, nccordlng to former
Hawaiian decisions, makes the valua
tion generally "manifestly unfair and
unjust" when, as In this case, tho
property was leased years ago at a
smaller rental than could now bo ob
tained. "The talue of the landlord's Inter
est Increases and that of the "tenant's
Interest decreases ns the expiration ol
the term approaches, other things re

Chief Justice Frcnr writes tho opin

"The decision of the Tax Appeal
Court assessing the lot on Union
square at $30,000 Is affirmed and that
assessing the appellee's Interest In the
i lot at Pawaa at $800 Is reversed and
that Interest Is assessed at $7600."
In arriving at the valuation ot the
Pawaa lot tho appellate court acted on
the consent of tho Dlshop Estate Trus
tees to an assessment of $5000 and on
a competition that $7500 "would be a
little less than $800 plus a sum that
would at seven per cent compound In-
terest amount to $29,200 In twenty-
one years, that Is, the present value of
$29,200 to be received at the end of
twenty-one years, discounting at the
rato of seven per cent per annum, com

THE MEHRTEN CASE.
"Under our statutes, one who re
turns land for assessment purposes as
solo owner, without mention of a
lease to which It Is subject, cannot on
appeal set up the lease to show that
he had a less Interest than that re
turned." Chief Justice Frear Is also author of

syllabus, on the appeal of the Tax
Assessor from the assessment by the
Tax Appeal Court of a lot In Hono
lulu belonging to Emily K. Mehrten
having a frontage of 345 feet on Ala
kea street, 32 feet on Queen street and
97 feet on Halekaulla street, the area
being 18,987 square feet. The lot Is
subject to a lease made in January,
1895, for fifteen years at, an annual
rental of $900. An undisputed finding
Is that the lot, if unincumbered by the
lease, would be worth $25,000. Tho
value of the landlord's Interest by tne
eight-year rule would be $7200. This
li the amount returned by the taxpayer
and fixed by the Tax Appeal Court,
but, as In the Bishop Estate case to
which the o'plnlon refers, this rule Is
considered "manifestly unfair and un
just." Consent was given before tho
Tax Appeal Court to an assessment of
1 -f "f
an estimate of the value of the prop
crty subject to the lease. In Its opln
Ion, "the statute mado tho assessment
by the assessor conclusive and not sub
Ject to appeal so far ns the oulstand
Ing lease Is concerned."
It Is pointed out that this case dif
fers from that of tho Bishop Estate In
that no further time was given for
furnishing information as to the
lease, no such Information was fur
nished and tho nsscssor knew nothing
about It. While the lessee, the Hono
lulu Iron Works, gave the Mchrten
lease for $900 In Its return, this was
the return of another party, the de
scription was very brief and the names
of the lessors were given as "E. & J.
Mehrtcns," while the return In this
case Is from "Mrs. Emily K. Mehrten."
The court says It cannot presume from
this that the assessor knew that tho
Icasa mentioned In the return of the
Honolulu Iron Works was that at
tempted to be set up now or that he
had such in mind when assessing tho
property in question, even If the court
could hold that. If the assessor did
know It, the taxpayer could set that up
In the present proceeding under tho
circumstances. The statute provide
that tho Interest of every person shall
be separately nsscssed, and that leases,
mortgages, etc., on property shall bo
set forth In the return. In conclusion
It Is decided, that:
"Tho assessment of $7200 by tho
Tax Appeal Court Is set asldo and the
assessment of $25,000 by the Assessor
la allowed to stand."
