RAPID TRANSIT COMPANY
FIANC1ISE IS UPHELD
.Manager Pain Controverted by Bis
Own Testimony Rapid Transit
Rails on King Street
.ludge M. M. Esteo rendered his docl-
slon In the United States District
Court this morning upon the Injune-
tlon suit of tho Hawaiian Tramways
Company, Limited, a foreign corpora.
tlon, against tho Honolulu Rapid
i ronmi c wina vuiVHujr, uiwum, ,
Tho Injunction Is denied. This de
rision was reached, too, without refer
ence to the question as to whether the
Hawaiian Tramways Company had
complied with the provisions of tho
Territorial laws relating to foreign complainant In this case. This Is the
questions. The court found It unne-1 solo point In the controversy won by
ressary to consider that question at . the complainant Tho court cited tho
all. Its decision Is based on the decl- principle that the appearance of nn at
nlons of the Supremo Court relative to torncy In court Is presumptive proof
thusa brought up by tho complainant
In these proceedings before the Federal
.ludge. Estcc. on the latter score,
pronounced the law to bo that the .Fed
eral court had no Jurisdiction over any
matter determined In the Territorial'
eourtrf when there was no question of
Federal law involved. While It Was
true that the complainant alleged that .
the nets of the respondent were uncon
stitutional in being a violation of the
prior rights of the complainant, yet
tho Hawaiian Tramwarm fTomnanv had
fully recognized the .validity of the!
franchise under which the Ilapld Tran
sit Company was operating. For the '
rest that Is, the rights and privileges
fit the respondent under Its franchise
the Territorial Supreme Court Sad
nettled the matter.
Readers aro already familiar with the
Supreme Court decisions, nmong other
things declaring the right of the Rapid
Transit Company to construct Its
tracks for a distance of more than 1709
feet upon King street. This Is the
right attacked by tho Hawaiian Tram
ways Company In tho Injunction suit
A great part or the decision deals
with the contention of tho complainant
that tho proceedings In the Hawaiian
Supremo Court worn "pretended" and
totally unauthorized by the Hawaiian
Tramways. Company, hence that the
decisions thereunder were not In any
manner whatever binding upon that
corporation. The court on this ques
tion condemns the foreign corporation
virtually out of Its own mouth.
W. !!. Pain, on his own sworn show
ing, has been resident mnnager of the
Hawaiian Tramways Company since a
certain time in the year 1889, having
had throughout that period exercised
nxcluslve control over oil tho opera
tions of the company. This control
baa Included all of tho litigation
wherein the company has been a party
within that period. Mr. Pain, in these
pleadings, alleged, under oath that tha
late Paul Neumann and Homes &
Stanley were without any authority a'a
attorneys to appear for the Hawaiian
1 TrarawayB Company In the submission
of a case to tho Supreme Court. Yet It
wns proved, partly by his own testi
mony, that Mr. Pain attended the hear
ing in the Supremo Court, while It was
Mr. Stanley who on that occasion read
the submission of agreed facta to tho
court. Again. Mr. Pain, although he
possessed full privilege In that 'regard,
did not at that tlrao or since, until he
brought these proceedings In the
United States District Court, protest
or object to the appearance of the at
torney named. Incidentally, the court

STEAM P10W IMPOftTFRS
From a reliable but unofficial sourct
news comes that will gladden the
hearts of the Importers of steam plows
should It be true. For a long time
the Treasury Department has contend
ed that steam plows should be taxed
at the rate of 45 per cent ad valorem
as material manufactured of metal
and not as plows at 20 per cent Re
cently a steam plow was Imported to
the United States by Oxnard, tho beet
BUgar man and taken 'through New
Orleans to California. No duty was
paid on It but It was secured by a bond
given for the payment of the charge.
After the working of the machine wa
explained and it was seen that the en
glno and plow were of so close a rela
tion that one could not be worked
without the other both the Collectors
of New Orleans and San Francisco
ruled that tho plow as an entirety
should be admitted at the rato of 20
per cent duty. This ruling was made
by the Collector of this port but not
allowed by the Treasury Department

There was no temporary Injunction

for the Kallhl cxtcnslo, i has been
practically completed during tho pen

for tho greater part ot tho distance.
Judge Estce, In tho early part ot his
decision, stated tho principle that

thero was ground for a permanent In

The man went to a saloon and spent

FOUR PORTUGUESE BOYS
FIGURE AS WITNESSES
Accuse Nephew of Kissing Aunt
Attorney Fitch's Humorous
Allusion Thereto Put
Himself on Record.
A case which caused a lot of miirrl
rreni In the I'ollco Court this forenoon
and which took up ocr an hour's tlmo
wns that In which Frank Ferreira, the
assistant hark- Inspector, was charged
with assault and bnttcry on Arthur
Gulstan, an employe at tho postofllco,
and n nephew of C. II. llrown. tbo
Tha troublo occurred last Sunday
afternoon about 2 o'clock, when Frank
Ferreira and a number of Portuguese
boys wero out picking up red beans
In Thomas Square and when Gulstan
and Mrs. Drown and her baby were
also In the park for an airing.
Gulstan, the first witness put on thu
stand by Attorney Tom Fitch, said
that he and ii.s aunt had gono Into tho
park to glvo J'.io baby an airing. They
went to tho middle, of tho placo and
there chose a bench In tho shade. It
was noticed that there was a coat on
tho hack of tho bench, but neither hn
nor his aunt touched It. Noticing that
tho baby. In playing around, had got
hold of the collar and necktie that was
with tho coat, tho witness said ha took
It away and placed It nn tho back ot
the bench with tho coat,
Just then lie heard someone calling
out to leave his coat aiono. Later on
lerrelra, after circling tho park, came
up and catching him by tho shoulders,
throw him off tho bench and told him
to go home, He stated thai ho had as
much right thero us anyone, hut his
aunt, not wishing to havo any troublo.
iieciueu u would no best to go home
ana later on enter u complaint.
Mrs. Brown told substantially the
same story. At the end of Gulstan'a
siory, Ferreira askt-d tho witness If ho
did not kiss his, aunt In thn square. Ha
replied very decidedly In tho negative
Ho started In on tho samo lino with
Mrs. Drown, but. only asked If Gulstan
was not a very closo ncpnew.
Tho real fun began when Ferreira
began to put on tho small boys who
bad picked up hoans with him on
Sunday. Attorney Fitch started to
question tbe first of these previous to
ins taxing tne oath.
"Young man. do you know bat It Is
to tell tho truth?" asked Mr.x Itch.
"What will happen to you If you
don't tell thu truth?"
"I will get arrested."
"Who Is Ooi?"
"Ho Is tho creator of everything."
That settled Mr. Fitch. Ho conclud
cd that thero wero no objections to
having tho boy sworn.
. Tha second and third hoys wcro not
questioned, but tho fourth was. Mr.
Fitch raked him If he could read and
ho replied that ha could not read hard
words. Mr. Fitch then picked up a
copy of tho Advertiser and. walking
over to tho witness, said: "If the boy
can read tho Advertiser, ho can read
anything." Judgo Wilcox offered an
amendment, saying: "You mean, Mr.
Fitch, that If anyone can read tbo Ad
vertiser and understand It,"
Tho boy could read and so ho was
allowed to testify. Tho defendant de
clined to testify and Mr. Fitch began
his argument Ho started out with
tho proposition of tho alleged kissing
enlsodn which all tho boys had said
Mrs. Drown and her nephew by mar
riage bad Indulgca In In -tho park.
Tho attorney said In part: "Tho
young gentlemen who havo rscaDcd
from their trundle bods to rumo horn
and testify havo said that there was
some kissing going pn In broad day
Ilcht In tho square. Whllo this Is
highly improbable, still such a thing
mignt nave happened. I see no reason
why a nephew should not kiss his aunt
If ho wants to nnd sho lots him. If
I bad ns pretty nn aunt ns tho young
lady reforrcd to, I would kiss her and
5'W would, Your Honor, but probably
not In broad daylight."
Having completed this part of his
speech, he turned to tho oplsndo of tha
