Rapid Transit Defense
BATTLE FOR POINTS
IN THE INJUNCTION SUIT
Attorneys Placed on Witness Stand
Mr. Breckons Has His Own
, As the trial of the Injunction suit to
prevent the Rapid Transit Company
from laying Its electric railway across
the vegetable garden of Sun Kwong
Mau Company proceeds, new situations
are hourly produced while a constant
battle over the admission of proffered
evidence. This morning the pendulum
of Judicial decision swung with alter
nate comfort to the parties, according
ly as their respective contentions ap
peared sound to Judge Humphreys with
or without argument.
Emll C. Peters, attorney, was block
ed by Mr. Breckons when he essayed
to testify ot a conversation with certain
Chinese In a Fort street fruit Btore.
The objection was sustained as to con
versation filtered through the lips ot
an interpreter, but the witness was
allowed to tell some thing that passed
In English between himself and a Chi
nese witness Identified by him In court.
He had Joshed this man about his as
sociates having made a pile of money
and departed for China, while the one
be accosted remained In this country.
The answer was something like this:
"Yes, they all go away, but me stay
here." This evidence was to prove
that the persons ostensibly prosecuting
this suit were alt absent In China be-
fpre tho suit was begun.
I R. W. Breckons, United States Bis,
irici Aiiorncy, was cuiicu uy mt. mc- , jir, Hreckons claim ng that It was im
Clanaban nnd answered that ho was ot material who might have entered tho
counsel for the plaintiff. Mr. Dunno flrm after the Institution of the buIi.
had drawn the amended bill of com-1 j,g0 Humphreys said the general
plaint. The witness recognized but ono nl0 was that anything happening nf
of tho Chinese In court as having been ter the Institution of a suit was Immn
scen by him before this trial. He had.tcrlal, hut anything to show that par
seen a bunch of Chinese In the pro-, tfs have no longer any Interest In a
clncts of his offlco whllo the amended sl,n wna material evidence. The par
bill was being prepared. In the course tes t0 ths Bt na,i obtained a tempor-

found her till after the baieball
Two Island steamers arrived this
morning from Kauai, tho James Ma
kce. Captain Tullett, and tho Nllhaii,
Captain V. Thompson. Tho Makco
came Into port at 8:10 o'clock from
Kllauca, having left that port at 4:53
o'clock yesterday afternoon. She
brought ns pasengcrs Mrs. Haglhala
Mrs. II. Anahu and eight on deck. I tor
rnrgo consisted of 2701 bags of sugar,
20 bags of rlco and 21 packages of sun
dries. Her purser reports the Kallua
at Makawell loading sugar and thu
W. O. Hall at Ahuklnl.
The Nllhati arrived at C:20 o'clo-k
wll'i eight deck passengers and G230
bags of sugar. Ono of her boats wax
swamped at Walmca on account of
tho roughness of tho sea. Her purser
reports the schooner James Rolph sail
ed from Makawelt on tho 17lh with
S000 bags of sugar for San Francisco.
On Kauai 1C.000 bags of sigar await
the names signed represented absent
persons, the witness asked that powers
of attorneys be brought. Two of tho
signers brought powers of attorney, but
the other powers we; not seen by blm
before their production In court.
Uetore leaving the stand, when Mr.
McClanahan had said "That Is all, Mr.
Breckons," the witness resumed his at
torney's functions by moving to have
his evidence stricken out. Judge Hum
phreys promptly granted the motion.
Carlos A. Long, another attorney ot
tho court, was called to tho stand and
testified that, as a notary public, ho
bad taken acknowledgement to a bill ot
sale and an agreement between the
complainants, or some of them, and
certain others. To a question Involv
ing the notary's knowledge of whether
the signatures were genuine Mr. Breck
ons objected on the ground that tho
jurat to an acknowledgement spoke for
Itself. The objection was sustained.
Plaintiffs were. Introducou to Iilm by
Lee Chin. Mr, Breckons objected to
the question as to what was the occa
sion of the Introduction. The objection
was not sustained and It was here that
the evidence became regularly admitted
regarding the bill of sale and agree
ment. Mr. McClanahan, answering a fur
ther objection, said he wanted to show
that these parties had sold their inter
ests. The order of occurrence of pre
vious stages of tho litigation was re
lated In different wnyB by the attorneys,
ary Injunction. Now they sought a i
further remedy In a pormancnt Injunc-
'tlnn If thnv hml nn further lnterpitt In'
the property, evidence to that effect was
.admissible. Tho objection was over-
Tho witness having testified of the
'ngicement, Mr. McClanahan asked Mr.
Breckons to produce a copy of it. Tho
attorney for the plaintiff did not have
It at hand, but promised to look It up
at noon recess.
Mr. Long from a memorandum nam
ed the parties of the first part and those
of tho second part In tho agreement.
Among the latter was ono James Mc
Gill. This was a young man, witness
said In answer to a question ot Identi
fication. He seemed to bo an English
man and witness thought was In the
employ of Thco. II. Davles & Co.
Mr, McClanahan evidently deemed ho
had struck a trail, for there was a tone
of gusto In his remark, "1 will tssuo a
subpoena for James McGlll."

First Shipment of Enemy of Lantana
Boxes of Forest Tree and
Shrub Seeds Also
By the Sierra Wednesday, Wray
Taylor, Commissioner of agriculture,
received from Professor Kochcle, the
government entomologist, a box of red
nnd black lady bugs (chlllcorus), somo
Mexican lantana seed and a box of
seeds, all from Mexico.
The most Interesting part of tho ship
ment was the small box of lady bugs.
This was shipped from tho City of
Mexico in tho 2d Inst, and was sent by
express to San Francisco on the ice.
I'pon nrrhal at the latter place, the
sealed box was received by Alexander
Craw, the state quarantine officer, nnd
by him shipped In cold storage to Ho
nolulu In tho Sierra.
Upon arrival at the oftlccs ot the De
partment of Agriculture and Forestry,
tho box was opened by R. C. I Per
kins, the naturalist, and the lady bugs
Immediately began to show signs of
activity. After being left In a cloth
covered glass Jar for a short time, they
began to crawl out and try their wings
and were soon all over the sides of the
Jar and the box,
Tho Insects were so ravenously Tiun
gry that they began to cat the bodies
of the ones thnt had died during thu
trip. Today, Mr. Perkins Is out scour
ing the suburbs ot Honolulu for suit
able food for tho valuable Insects.
The chlllcorus exists In tho Islands
but not to any great extent so when
Prof. Koebele found somo In Mexico
he Immediately sent them on. iTils
lady bug Is a most valuable ono since
the various kinds of blight to be found
here constltuto Its natural food.
The lantana seeds sent by Prof.
Koebele wcro packed In moss nnd Mr.
Perkins feels that from the dampness
nnd general appearance of tne whole
mass, tho developments which Prof.
Koebele anticipated will not be forth
coming. It seems that these seeds are sup
posed to have deposited on them the
eggs of a fly that, in Mexico, Is prov
ing Itself to be the most deadly enemy
of the lantana. The flies ruin tho flow
ers so that they do not go to seed nnd
thus new plants nre prevented from
At all events. Prof. Koebele expects
to send morn nf the lantann seeds so
that It will not bo long before the fly
becomes known In Hawaii.
For somo time past, packages of

KICKED HER IN FACE
I.ast evening a scene was witnessed
by a citizen of Honolulu In the house
of n very respectable Japanese on Pau
ahl street, nar tho river, which, had
the police been present, would surely
have resulted In the arrest of another
Japanese who happened to drop In.
It appears that a man and a woman,
both Japanese, called in at tho house
mentioned nnd pleasant conversation
began. Soon, the door wns darkened
by the flguro of another Japanese who
advanced upon the woman In the room
nnd deliberately kicked her In the face.
The other men In tho room Jumped
up and soon had tho woman's assailant
under control. They searched him nnd
found upon his person a largo knlfo.
Evidently the fellow wns out looking
for trouble. The woman was badly
cut and bruised about the head and she
wns gotten out of the way ns quickly
It was learned later that the woman
wns tho brutal fellow's own sister and
that he had become angerd because sho
refused to obey ceitatn commands
which ho had given.
