Victor Hoffman has made answer to
the order to show cause why he should
not bo compelled to transfer 250 share
of stock In tho McKcchnle Paint &
Wall Paper Co. to L. II. Deo on the
books of the company. He denies that
Dee Is entitled to have any stock re
corded In his name, that ho Is a stock
holder and that ho lias any right to
participate In tho business of tbo cor
poration. He alleges that II. McKeeh
nlo on April 2 sold the company 250
shares of paid-up and 250 (hares of as
sessable stock, on which (319 had been
paid, all of such stock being then turn
ed Into the company's treasury, and
ji McKcchnle then ceased to be a member
V . of the corporation. It Is further stated
'that, on April 10, McKechnle publicly
advertised that he had sold his Interest
In the company bearing his name and
was prepared to do business on his own
account at a stand specified. Mr, Hoff
man, who Is trt-HSurcr of tho company,
then makes a sorlous charge against
McKechnle in tho following words:
"And your respondent further ans
wering says that ou or about the fifth

Gcorgo A. Davis won alimony, costs
of court and counsel's fee In the War
ren divorce case, before Judge Robin
son this morning, against strong oppo
sition mado by J. A. Magoon. The lat
ter argued against allowing tho libel
lant means to live In Id to luxury, Inci
dentally passing reflections on tho wo
man, and contended that tho matter
of her attorney's feo might await tho
determination of the suit. Many pen
plo worked hard for $40 a month, Mr.
Magoon argued, and In this age and
country everybody was expected to
work for a living.
Mr. Davis, replied that tho statute-
wisely nnd humanely amended the com
mon law rulo of alimony. There was
evidence that the husband In this case
had beaten tho wlfo and turned her out
of doors. It was not only wise nnd hu
mano but Just that tho law provided
temporary alimony, also an attorney's
feo and costs of court. He was not
hungry for fees, unlike most of Mi
fellow-practitioners, but It was his
right as a member of tho bar to aek for
a reasonable feo In this caBo.
Judge Robinson held that the statute
bound tho court to provide tempornry
alimony. There was testimony that
tho defendant had been In tho habit
I of giving tho plaintiff $10 a week for
household expenses, thereforo ho would
i grant alimony of $10 a month for tho
i support of herself und child pending
tho decision of the caso. Also court
costs would bo allowed tho plolntlft, to
gether with a counsel's fee of $100.
Mr. Magoon noted an appeal from the
granting of counsel's fee, whereupon
Mr. Davis said: "There Is no appeal.
Tho question of preliminary counsol'3
fee did not como up In tho Nobrega
case. I got my money and I will get It
now." He referred to a preliminary
feo of $300 In tho Nobrega enso. Itvas
his fee of $1000 In tho final decree by
Judge Gear which tho Supremo Court

Manuel Olmos, a Portugueso print

"John Rosa Is mnrrlcd to my sister,

Ho got out of tho hack In which wo

to my houso at tho corntr of Fort and
School streets, 'a lltilo later, I found
that things wero In an upset condition.
1 saw Rosa at the gate but did not
think anything 'was wrong. My wife
was on tho veranda. When I got Into
tho houso, nothing wn said, but as
soon as Rosa left and was out of
sight, my wife told mc that ho had en
tered tho houso and her room while
she was asleep and had attempted to
ravish her. Sno called out for help
and ho tried to choko her. Fearing
that someone had heard tbo cry, bo
Olmos went 'to Rosa's houso this
morning with tho Intention of horse
whipping Rosa, but tho relatives of
tho latter were thero In force, and
were ready for an attack upon him.
Ho went directly from Rosa s house to
tho pollco station and sworo out a

Probably not one Bhlpplng man In
a hundred wlio notlcei in mo news
papers nnd shipping guides that tho
American barkentlno Kohaln, Captain
Dcdrlch, was bound for Elcelo with
coal from Newcastle, Imagtno that
thero was anything Irregular In the
Kohala going there. Tho customs au
thorltles, however, noticed that the
barkentlne was chartered for Elcelo
with coal and, whllo tho vessel was
making her way up from Australia
thoy wero wondering If her captain
would make tho mistake of going to
Eleele, Instead of a port of entry.
Tho Kohala did make tho mistake.
She went to Elcelo and Captain Ded
rick soon after received a little note
from Collector of Customs E. R.
Stackablc to tho effect that Elcelo was
not a port of entry nnd flint the Ko
hala was liable in tho sum of $500 for
an Infringement of the customs laws
by entering other than a port of entry.

would have shut out of the competi
tion a number of tho best men who

any one single, contest.
The contest will undoubtedly be a
very Interesting one and numerous en

somo local record may be broken.
