Eleu and Fearless at
It Again in Active
DEPARTMENT DAS ISSUED
ORDERS FOR ELEU TO TOW
Race for Incoming Bark This Morning
Which the Eleu Won
Fearless' Got a
'The tugs Fearless anil Kleu are run
ning in opposition to each other again
and In the future! lively times will be
expected again on tlm wateffront. For
several months thd tlovernment tug
lias been laid up from active service
other than tho harbor work for the
Territory, an aliu was In bad shape to
do heavy work ,ori account of n crack
eel crank shaft. Now that repair
hate, been made to her. she Is to be
wnt out to earn expenses, and orders
wero recently received from the Su
perintendent of Public Works to halo
the old boat mnKo n lender or nur ser
vices to nil Incoming patting vessels.
l.nst winter there were some lhely
scrimmages between the Kleu and
Fearless in which ...e Hprcckels boat
mually won out. Considerable talk
was tho result of tho operations of tho
iiiki. and an a result of the ilvulry
win li discussion wns heard on thu Ille
gality of a Terrltoilni tun competlnK
with the boat of a private concern.
Ah tho Kleu was being run nt a great
li ss to tho Territory, it was thought
best when the discovery that her
trunk shaft wni irackfd to take her
out of tho towing business on account
m tbo complaint made by tho lusur--nid
companies against bur handling
eiKels when she was liable to break
down at'any time mid place the vessels
'Ibis morning the war between tho
mutts began." Tno,harkt-ntlneIrnroflet
and James Johnson were 'outside nnd
iKjth tui-H started out fur them. Tbo
Cleu went to the I'liuoiui auu onurea
Utr services, which were, refused, and
hVArlesH. utter bringing in thu
Johnson, went after Jhu other boat
tnd brought her to dock. As soon as
the Fearless went out niter the PI
mond a bark was reported fifteen
mil. h to the northeast and the Khitl
riturted out for her. The Fearless In
the meantime was hooked on to tbo
b:.rkentlno and brought her in and
then had to go to the schooner Mary
K. Foster, which was ready for sea.
The Eleu by this time was well on bar
way to the burlc and hnd a Mart of
ii bout an hour on the IYnrless. As
toon as she dropped tho Footer, the
IVnrlosa started mil for the baric,
v.hlch is thought to 1m- the Tobey,
I rem San Francisco, and lit noon the
two tugs were, going for all they were
worth in the direction of tho barn,
which bt that time was about ten
miles off Koko Head. The Kleu was
six miles la advance of the Feailess
and nearer to tun bark by several
miles than her rival. The Fearless
wns hooked on at top sliced and was
tearing through water nt a great rate
In an attempt to get commuulcatloii
with tho captain of the bark beforo lie
gave his lino to the Kleu. This was
not oslble, however, as the Fearless
Lad too much to make up and tho
Kleu got the tow. The trip ot the
Spiccitels tug was not in vain, how
ever, ns she picked up a fotir-mnitetl
si hooner, coal-laden, and at 1 o'clock
passed her hawser to her.
It is possible that If the Kleu con
t'r.uca -to run In opposition to tho
Fearless tho courts will bo called upon
to settle tho disputed question of tho

"Change for ten dollars? Why my
dear madam, I have not carried such
un amount ot money as that In my
pockets since a month or bo ago." So
spoke a harkman of the city to a lady
who rode in'hls hack last evening.
When asked why he had considered
such a course necessary, ho replied that
he nnd a great many other hnckmen
of the city did not Intend to loso nny
more money than they could help.
Thero had been so many hold-ups and
inbbcrles In the ilty of late that hack
men of the best stands of tha city did
not deem It wise to carry much money
about with them, being a class of pco-
pie who. from tho nature of thelt
business, were forced to go Into all
ninnurr of places tit ull hours of the
night. The hiickmuii who spoke to tho
I.uly was seen by a llulletln reporter
this forenoon and this Is what ho had
"Many of us hae been In the habit
of cumlug all thu way from $20 to
$100 or more. That was In thq times
whrn'Hetioluba vim not besot-by -tough
characters such as we have now. At;
the present time, we very rarely carry
more than three or four dollars around
with U4. It we happen to get a big
load which nets us n good round sum
of money, we Invariably put tho fare
In some safe place. We never think of
tnklng it along with us. No, It would
he a very little that a robber would
find on any hack man In tho city today,
were he to hold up nny of us. Wo are
keeping abreast of the times. Why,
do not carry my watch any more at
night time. I do not euro about losing
what little I haw.
".Some of us who live In the suburbs
of the city even carry revolvers nowa
diis. although It Is against the law to
do so. I have n rurally that I must go
homo to every night nnd I do not in
tend that they shall be without a hus
band father for even one night. I tell
j mi, It would bn n bud thing for a rub
ber to tackle me. He might get lend
but he certainly would not get gold."
This Is only una Instance. Many
other hackmcii have been talked to
and they sa the vcrylsamu thing.
They uie constantly on the lookout for
highwaymen. Most of this particular
wariness has come about Blncu tho Chi
nese hackman was held up at l.unalllo
Homo by two colored highwaymen
some weeks ngo.
Some of the drivers of the tmniram
aio also very much wrought up over
the recent stories of hold-ups and rob
bcrles nnd are keeping n special look-
out nightly at the various places In the
city nnd suburbs, where a highway
man Is liable to appear at any time
during thu lonely hours of tho night
The Wulklk'l tei minus of tho tram can
is considered one of tho very best
(daces for a hnld-iip by a couplo pi
highwaymen und It is there that the
very best lookout Is kept. Rome of the
men hnvo armed themselves nnd will

themselves with icvolvers und woe

proach them w Ith nny Intention of evil.
They will receive a definite answer be

One ot the gentlemen who carries a
revolver at thu present time Is located
In a hardware store In tho city. He has
to go to his home In Nuuunu valley
lute at night and does not care to be
icllovcd of even the little which be
huppens to have about him. Tbo re
volver which he carries would frighten
tho very worst of tho thugs who In

Renewal of Malicious Attacks by One
of the Noted Contempt Lawyers
Lies About Juries-Quotes
the Bitting Case. .
The Louisville Courier-Journal of
November 30 prints the following
statement from Sidney M. tlallou. one
of thu lawvers sentenced for contempt
by Judge Humphreys:
Mr. Sidney M. llnlluu, a prominent
attorney oFMIoiinlulu, Hawaii, and son-
in-law of General Ilasll W. Duke, is In
Louisville on his way to Kuropc, where
bu will spend several months travel
ing with ills wife, formerly Miss Tom
mle Duke. Mr. Ilnlloil talks Interest-
ingly of the judiciary ot Hawaii. He
practiced dally In tho courts of Judge
A . Humphreys ana Judge ucorga
D. Gear, whoso rulings have been the
subject of much criticism on the Isl
and and In the States. Tho Hawaii
liar Association asked for the rcmov-
al or Judge Humphreys, but the Judge
wns sustnlned by Attorney Genernl
Knox. These two Judges aro known
as Territorial Circuit Judges and were
appointed by President McKlnley.
While exercising all tho mules anil
rU'hts of ii Circuit Juilgu they are also
Federal Judges Inasmuch ns they arc
iippulntcd by the President,
Mr. llnlluu liurai terlzes them as
jnwtb.'iEKcrb" of the worst type, and
ravs that both men nre now rolling In
"lenllh, notwithstanding they were
poor mill when they went to Hawull
only n short time ugo.
Judge Humphreys. Mr. llalluu says
tells thc-storyythat wtn'n hft lauded In
Honolulu he did not have sufficient
money, $.'iO, required by law to dlsem
bark. He mado a "bluff" with Con
federate money and got on land. He
Immediately married Miss Mario
Afong, the daughter of a Chinese so
gar king, who Is worth millions. Ho
then speculated in stocks and bonds,
acquired a big law practice and per.
r.unded President McKlnley that he
should be made one of tho Judges ot
Hawaii, .ii r. Humphreys Is barely
over thirty years of age.
Mr. Hnllou says both Judges Hum
phreys and Gear are politicians and
have gained favor with tho voting
power, which Is held by an Ignorant
class. The lower element is in the
majority nnd controls both branches
ot the Legislature.
"Judge Humphreys slice ceiled,
said Mr. llallou. "in getting an act
through thu Legislature containing the
Section 3. That It shall he the duty
of thu several bailiffs appointed under
this ai t to at all times preserve order

inillit whom he pleases. Then tne

Judge wants the man com li ted It is
nn easy matter for him to accomplish
Judge Humphreys Is a czar on tho
nench ami un attorney must guard
himself most carefully or ho will be
sent to jail and fined. Thu following
record from tho court will Illustrate
the point clearly:
Mr. Kitting May I ask Your Honor
whether tho stenoginphur made a rec
ord of Your Honor's charge to the
Tbo Court I am suro I don't know.
Mr. Hitting I simply wish to take
some exceptions In order to challenge
