COURT AND COUNSEL
-'. HAVE WARM TIMES
W. R. Castle was called by the Jc
(endant In tho I'earl Harbor case after
the conclusion of reading the previous
testimony to the new Juror. Tit's esti
mate ot the value of the leasehold In
question was (250,000.
J. T. Crawley, agricultural chemist,
testified to the nature of the soils, but

on that basis.
llr. Thurston was Informed thorn'
was 312 acres of sugar land, but could l
not say how many acres altogether In I
tho land sought to bo condemned.
There ncro two hinds of soil, ono vol
canic wash from the hills, the other a
red soil mixed with coral. Yes, ho had
seen these soils, but there might hae
been other kinds. When witness ans
wered Mr. Dunne regarding water, tho
latter objected that tho nnswrr wis
not responslvo to the question,
Judge Esteo said then It must be
struck out, but Mr. Sllllman claimed a
similar lino ot evidence had been ad
mitted previously. Mr. Dunne then
stated his objection formally, that tho
evldcnco was Immaterial Ir-levnnt ai,d
Incompetent. The court ruled tho tes
timony out now, saying It had never
allowed a particle of testimony nbm.t
water flowing on adjoining lands. Man
ager Low and tho company's engineer
had testified that this ditch was madn
since the beginning of this action. M.
Sllllman said his question was as to
the elevation of the flowing water.
Mr. Dunno held to bis objection, saylnj;
It applied to everything relative to for
eign land. When tho court sustained
the objection. Mr. Sllllman contendc.l
that tho samo matter had been argued
out before and tho court admitted the

Judge Kstce at thU administered n
quietus to tho proffered evidence, say
ing: "If this court finds It mado a mis
take. It will correct itself."
Mr. Thurston was then excused
Tbo foregoing abstract Is from bis dl
rcct, cross and redirect examinations.
Mr. Sllllman brought up the matter
of nn absent witness, whether his evi
dence would be received. Answering a
query, he said the witness was sick in
Judge Estee said tho court would not
delay the case merely for cumulative
evidence, Several witnesses had tes
tified to value for tho defendant
An Interpreter Needed.
Won Koom Cham of Wing Muw Wal
Co., after being sworn In English, tuld
tho court ba could not speak that lan
guage very well. An Interpreter was
brought to the doorway, a bright young
Chinaman, but, as the Marshal at tho
samo time informed uo court, his Ku
ropcan garments lacked a coat. "Well,
let blm put his coat on and come In,"
ordered the Judge. After showing bl-n-self

were breakers ahead. Mr. Interprctur
found that, beforo a tribunal of Justlio.

wholo thing, whatever precedents wuio
afforded by political rallies.
It should have been mentioned that
Judge Humphreys was a spectator of

Interpreter Called Down.
Dy and by a leaso was presented for
Identification by the witness nnd as he
bent over it he asked the .Interpreter
who held It a question. That official
replied in Chinese, then said in En
glish, "It Is a lease." Mr. Dunne ob
jected to the making ot testimony by
tho Interpreter, whereupon the latter
was nddressed thus sternly by the
"Mr, Interpreter, you Just interpret
and then stop. If not, you had bellir

"He asked mn what It was," meekly
explained the Interpreter.
"That makes no difference," rejoin

Exhibit Makes Trouble.
Another breezy episode followed fait,
A cheque !. (7900 from W. O. Irwin
to pay Wing Mow Wal Co. for Its
leasehold of 25 or 30 acres was sub
mitted for Identification as nn exhibit
to be filed. Mr. Dunne objected to tho
admission of the paper, the court favor
ing tho objection, on, the grounds that
the cheque was mado in 1900 and tho
transaction had nothing to do with
this case. Tho Government attorney
cited a Massachusetts decision that ono
year was too long a time elapsed beforo
tho prlco of property could bo given
ns evidence of present value. Author
ities differed as to whether the price
of contiguous land could be offered as
evidence of tho value of tho land In
volved, but thoso holding the affirma
tive maintained that one year was loo
Strong Words Used.
Judge Estco remarked It having
been made clear that tho object of tlw
mooted exhibit was to provo tho valuo
ot the land for rico cultivation that
the Jury had koii over the land anil
knew whether It was rite land or not,
nnd whether or not It was cultivated.
Then he ruled out the cheque because
W. (. Irwin's name had not hlthcito
appeared In the proceedings. The court
nnd everybody connected with It, he
went on to say, saw that tho land was
on tho edgo of a bluff and that not
more than an aero of It could be culti
vated In rice. In tho face of such
knowledge, the evidence offered was a
trampling up public Justice which
would not be permitted In that court.
Mr. Sllllman objected to tho state
ment of tho court.
Tho court said the company s engin
eer nnd other witnesses Tiad testified
that nit tho water on that land wnj
from tho artesian well.
Mr. Sllllman, In answer to tho au
thorities cited against tho exhibit,
pointed out that the chequa was dated
in December, 1900, which was only
about six months prior to the begin
ning of this action. It was thcreforo
well Insldo of tho tlmo limit quoted
by tho Federal nttorncy.
Mr. Dunne, seeing tho court wns dis
posed to entertnlu opposflo counsel's
reasoning, renewed his objection.
Mr. Sllllman explained that ho want
ed to show the nature or the trans
action. Chinese Testimony Impugned.
Jildgo Kstce exclaimed: "Well.
bring In another witness, for tho couiti
nud the Jury saw this land, nnd the
ovldenco of this witness Is a trampling
on public Justice. Drlng In a wblto
witness." Ho then refused to allow,
a question asking to whom the cheque '
wns paid, saying It might as well be '
understood, first ns last, that tho court,
would not accept Chlneso testimony
that wns contrary to facts known to
Mr. Sllllman. with nn ohleetlon notml

Manager Low Knows.
James A. Low, manager of the Ho
nolulu riantatlon Company, was re
called and asked what be knew regard
ing the cultivation of the land. Mr.
Dunne objected but the court allow
ed tho question. Witness answered
with studied deliberation: "I know
that rice, melons and sugar cane have
btcn grown wlrfitn the past six
years on about twenty ncrcs of that
lnd, with watri' brought on by a
flume frii the we." Ho saw the
cheque before. Its purpose was the
payment by W. O. Irwin for a lease
bold of 25 or 30 acres within the land
The Exhibit Landed.
Tho cheque was admitted, Mr. Dunne
noting nn exception
Objection wns sustained to a ques
tion of what wns paid to Ah In for nn
adjacent leasehold, also as to the price
ot any land outside the condemned
area. Witness admitted It was thn
policy of defendant to get every piece
ot cultivable land within leach.
The Court How did you come to
say. In your former evidence, respond
ing to a question propounded by the
court, that you only knew of one acre
of cano growing on that latd?
Witness I understood the question
was entirely on the cane, and I said
that I saw an ncre of cane growing nnd
studied It. Continuing, ho said he saw
rlco growing there all summer until
Decemler. Mr. Dunne nsked If tho
attempt to grow rlco there did not
prove a failure, and witness answered:
"It grew beautifully there. The only
trouble was to get water."
At 4:25 the court adjourned until 0
o'clock this morning.
