REMARKS BY JUDGE GEAR
Mr. Stewart Contends that Breaking
a Definition is No Crime
According to T. McCants Stewart's
contention, Kallmapchu was flneel
$100 and costs this morning for break
ing a definition. Defendant was
found guilty of assault and battery
upon a complaint charging him with
violating Bectlon BO, Penal Laws of
Judgo Hear called Kallmapehu up
for sentence. Mr. Stowart as his coun
sel, wanted to be heard first. Tho
Judgo told him ho had been heard ful
ly yesterday afternoon on tho matter
of sentence, when ho pleaded for a
money penalty Instead of Imprison
ment. Mr. Stewart, however, had a motion
In arrest of Judgmen ready, which
being a regular proceeding hart right
of way. "Your Honor will surely not
blame mo for zeal on behalf of my
client," said tho attorney as a prcluuo
to the ground of motion, which was
In substance that no penalty was pre
scribed In tho section defendant had
been found guilty of violating.
Judge Gear remarked that tho of
fense of assault and battery was do
nned In that section, while tho penalty
for that offense was prescribed In
Mr. Stowart saldtho defendant was
convicted only of violating a defini
tion. The Court had dismissed soveral
cases tho present terra for defective
Judgo Gear, while admitting that
this was not a model complaint, de
nied tho motion and proceeded to de
liver (sentence. Ho told Kallmapchu
that his crime waB n rather serious
one, the Chinaman aBsaulcd being tin
Invalid who had recently undergone
an operation. Tho previous character
of the defendant was shown to bo
good. What Inclined the Court moro
than anything clso to sending him to
prison wbb that, nccordlng to tho ver
dict, his own testimony must havo
been false. This Implied tho added
guilt of perjury. However, thcro
were other clrcumstnnceo which made
a flno moro desirable than Imprison
ment. Defendant had a family which
would buffer from tho deprivation of
his support. Tho Government would
not havo the expense of keeping hlru
nnil tho flno would help to mako up
the deficiency In the public Treasury.
He would be fined ono hundred dollars
Tho Court went on to say that tho
drunkenness of defendant when he
committed tho offense- wbb not an ex
cuse. As ho had stated In another
case yesterday, ho was averse to send
ing young Hawallans to tho peniten
tiary for trivial offenses. Although
not considering this defendant's guilt
trivial, yet It was a crying ovll that
thcro was no common Jail for the con
finement of persons convicted of com
Mr. Stewart noted exceptions to thu
ruling on his motion in arrest of judg
ment. Some time was taken up In assign
ing cases for trial, tho Court finally
giving out that from tho next trial all
criminal cases should bo ready In
whatever order they might bo called.

OF CHINESE UNITED
Awaiting Answer (from Treasurer
Wright on Legality of Last
Election of Re
formers. The conservative faction of the Chi
nese United Society which was the last
to hold an election of officers of tho
organization nnd which agreed to al
low hostilities to rest until after the
Chinese New Year, arc again on tho
rampage. They havo sent In a protest
to Treasurer Wright which has for Its
burden the alleged fact that the elec
tion held by tho reformers some tlmo
ago was not legal.
The principal cause for the action
tnken 1b to be found In the following
section of the by-lnws:
Any Chinese or other person of Chi
nese descent, residing or sojourning In
the Hawaiian Islnnds, on consent of
the managers, may become a member
of this society by subscribing to the
by-laws and paying to the treasurer
tho Initiation fee from time to tlmo
prescribed by the society.
It Is claimed by tho old element of
tho society that the reformers did not
follow this section of the by-laws. It
Is said that the majority of tho mem
bers who got together nnd elected tno
officers of that faction were not elected
legally to membership. On the other
hand, the old element claims that every
one who voted at their meeting on the
night of the 31st of January had the
consent of the managers to become
members and were duly Installed In the
society as such.

agers. Is at present In Koolau and G.

The old clement or conservatives
are now awaiting n reply from Treas
urer Wright as to his opinion on tliclr
protest. If It is favorable to them and
tho election of the reformers Is de
clared Illegal once more, tho conserva
tives will make n move to take posses
sion of tho affairs of the society. At
all events, the matter will undoutcdly
bo taken into tho courts before, there
Is a final settlement of the disputed

tho Kaplolanl 1'stato onJKaahumnnil
street yesterday afternoon. Prlnco
Jonah Kalanlannolo, whouwas present
at tho time of tho trouble, made tho
following statement of tho trouble, to
a Ilulletln reporter this forenoon In or
der to correct nn Impression which thn
Advertiser gave out this morning In
Us story of tho nffalr:
"I went down to my (office Imme
diately after having finlshcTl work on
the Jury. 1 found Hognn In tho otuco
and accosted him. Ho Immediately
started In to tall: In a loud tone about
affairs between himself and the Or
pheum Company. At about this time,
Morris Koohoknlolo camojnto tho of
fice and he and Ilogan began talking.
The more tho latter Bald, the louder
and more abusive ho became. I did
not say anything at tho time, as I
thought Ilogan would cool off nnd talit
"In a little while. Kcobokalole told
Hogan to get nut of tbo office unless
he could conduct himself like a gen
tleman. At this, the colored singer
stamped on tbo floor, damned us nnd
became most abusive. Seeing that
Hogan did not intend to leave the of
fice, Kcobokalole went out after tho
police. An officer arrived but ho did
not request Hogan to lcnvo.
"The next thing Hognn did was to
address himself to me, stating that
I could not bluff htm out on any prop
osition. I told him I did not wish to
bluff him out nml that If he had any
business to transact with the Orpheum
Company ho had better go to tho right
place. He had no right to create a
disturbance In the office of mo Kaplo
lanl Estate. I told the fellow to go,
but ho would not, nnd so I sent out
again after n police officer. This time,
the man who camo requested Hogan
to leavo nnd he did so.
"On the way out Hogan challenged
me to go out to a lonjjispot In tlm
woods nnd settle the mnttnr of mus
cular supremacy. It Is needless for
mo to say that I took no heed of tha
ravings of tho fellow.
"A laughable challenge to fight came
to me In tho evening, plainly showing
that Hogan wanted to spill blood if
he could, I.Ike his former challenge
I let It pass In ono ear and out of tho
other. However, there Is one thing
I would like to say. In the written
challenge, which I did not accept for
patent reasons, Is contained state
ments which might lead people to
think 1 hail entertained Hognn and
been like n long-lost brother to him.
Ab n mntter of fuct. I simply know him
nud that Is all.
"We didn't want to hurt' Hogan yes
terday, but If be had persisted In re
maining In our ufllces when requested
by tho pollco to lenvo. I am Biire ho
would havi found himself In tho
street In pretty short order.
"Thnt Is all I have to say about tho
matter. Hogan came Into my nfllca
nnd rnlsed a disturbance when he had
no right whatever to do so, and ho
was forced to leave. I hnvii no quar
rel with him, nor have I any desire to
fight him unless ho attacks me. I
might then do n little something."

leaving l'ago Pago has made but three
hundred and forty knots a day on

There were a great many passengers

There was a very large crowd at tli

away and their many friends In town
gave them n rousing good-bye. Tho
minstrels along the ship's rail sang for
tho crowd nnd their songs were well
