HAD GUY IN IT
JUDGE WILCOX TODAY
Messrs. Bissel and GonsaWes Fined
$25 and Costs on Charge
of Selling Adulterated
M. J. lllssel, president and manager
ot the Washington Mercantile Co, and
M. A. Gonsalves, holding the samo po
sition In Gonsalves & Co, grocers, ap
peared In the Police Court this fore
noon on the charge of selling adulterat
ed coffee without tho requisite labels
marked "compound." They were rep
resented by Attorney Robinson. A plea
of not guilty wns entered In each In
stance. Mr. lllssel fought his case but
Mr. Oonsalvcs on finding that tho for
mer was fined $25 and costs, changed
his pica of not guilty to guilty and was
fined the same amount, it having been
explained that the evidence In his case
was' almost Identical.
Judge Wilcox, In summing up tho
rase, said that he did not believe there
had been .a wilful violation of the law.
It was really a technical violation on
tho part of each of the defendants and,
while there was absolutely no reflec
tion on either one ot tho men, still a
penalty would have to bo Imposed. He
would make the fine, the lowest allow
ed by the law. There was nothing per
sonal In the action brought' against
Messrs. nissel 'and Gonsalves but the
papers had to, bo served on the beads
of tho two houses from which tho cof
fee compound bad uecn sold.
J. Munlz, a Portuguese) grocer, was
the first witness put on the Rtaml by
the prosecution In the lllssel case. He
stated having bought a case of coffee
of the Washington Mercantile Co, for
$10. He had sold a ran to Dr. Sborey
In the same condition us when he pur
Dr, Shorey said that the coffee was
mixed with not less than J 5 per rent
of chicory and some kind ot cereal,
f)n cross-examination, Attorney Rob
Inson tried to get the witness to admit
that chicory was often put in the cot-
feo as a flavoring and a coloring sub
stauw but Dr. Shorey only answered
that many people preferred chicory In
their coffee and that, when the sub
stance wns used, iUrild color the cot
feo and give it a chicory flavor.
Mr. nissel told a straightforward
story, saying that the coffee Introduc
ed as evidence was the first of a now
brand ("Excellente") purchased from
a firm In San Francisco. As soon as It
was found that there was nothing on
the tins to Indicate that the contents
were a compound, a letter was sent to
the company In San Francisco and an
answer received November 9, stating
that nil future orders would be propor
ly labelled. Just here, the witness read
the copies of tho letters received, show.
Ing conclusively his good faith In ths
matter. He had overlooked marking
the tins he alrrndy had but as soon as
his attention was called to the fact,
ho ordered rubber stamps with which
to mark nil tno tins.
Mr. lllssel went on to explain that
tbo chicory was put In tho coffee bo
cuuso the peoplo to which this class of
goods wns sold, tho Portuguese, de
manded It. In fact, this compound
was Imported solely for tho Portu
guese. In nearly every caso whero pure
rotten had been sold tu the working
class nf Portuguese, rhlciiry w.u
bought and Introduced jntn It to get
Judge Wilcox facetiously remarked
that snce the Portuguese demanded
chicory In their coffee, pure coffee or
what was purported to be, ahuulu not
have been Indicted on them.

Judge Humphreys this anernoon fll
ed a written decision In Territory vs.
Hlckard. alias Rlikard Gunst. It Is on
a motion of the Attorney General for a
request that tho Jury be charged under
section 457 of the Penal l.av of 18'J7,
which mukes tbo delivery or liquor,
cither by the- owner or occupant or a
house, or by u servant or other per
sou, prima fade evidence of money
or other consideration being given for
liquor. Ho holds that "this stattito
converts what may well be not only un
Innocent but a commedablo act Into
n presumptively criminal one until the
defendant gives proof to the contrary
to the satisfaction or tho Jury.'" The

After reasoning at length on the sub

"Thu Innocent act Is established:
the consequences of guilt are not found
by tho Jury on the evidence, but arc
fastened upon him by tho law upon

Of Home Rule Com
mittee Meeting Last
SPOKE ON MATTERS THAT
CAME UP FOR ACTION
Several Resolutions Adopted Protest
of People Against Corporations
with Reference to Water
The Hume Rule Republicans held a
meeting In Foster hall last night which
was very well attended. Whit there
was not so much work done, the-e wns
a great deal or discussion, showing the
Interest or the members of the execu
tive commlttre In matters ptrt.ilning tu
the party Perhaps one of the most
Important (acts noted in connection
with the meeting was the presence or a
representative of one of the labor
unions of the city and nts participa
tion In the discussions of tho evening.
Apropos of this. It might be mention
ed that the committee' passed tho reso
lution relating to tho Invitations to be
dent to tho labor unions of the city to
send representatives to the councils of
the Home Rule Republican party, not
with any idea of nn attempt to roerto
tho labor men Into that organization
but to nllow them to draw their own
conclusions ns to the workings nf th.i
party nnd to net according to the die
Intes of their own consciences. This
action was brought about by tho fa
vorable report of the committee to
which tho resolution was referred al
the last meeting ot the committee.
Another resolution adopted at thft
meeting waB the one relating to the
granting of water privileges to corpor
ations as opposed to the people. This
will be forwarded to Delegate Wilcox
tor presentation to Congress. The
resolution Is a decided protest against
favoritism shown corporations, par- '
tlcularly In thu cases of the Walalua
Agricultural Co. and the Kaala moun
tain water and the Hawaii Ditch Co.
and the Kohala mountains water. It Is
the cry qf the people for recognition.
The recent Incorrect reports of Home
Rule meetings published by the Ad
vertiser brought out a long discussion
and It was Anally decided to appoint
ono person to give out to tho newspa
pers such matter as the committee sees
fit to publish.
The recent message of President
Roosevelt to Congress was n matter
which was the subject ot favorable
comment by1 many of the committee
members and. In connection therewith.
a resolution was ndoptcd, highly com
mending that portion relating to Ha
waii. This resolution Is to bo sent to
Delegate Wilcox for presentation to the
