ATKINSON WILL GO
At Once To The Azores
r FOR IMMIGRANTS
SECRETARY CABLES HIS ACCEPTANCE '
A. L-. C. Atkinson cables from Wash
ington tho Territorial Hoard of Immi
gration that he accepts tho mission ta
tho Azores In search of 6,000 Portu
guese agricultural families to come to
lluwall, anil that ho will go at once.
Immigration Commissioner J. P.
Cooke this morning received a cable
cram from tho Territorial Secretary
tnd Chairman of tho Territorial Hoard
cl Immigration to tho effect that he
had received tho letter of Instructions
cent by the Board n regard to the
work preliminary to securing tho do
ll red Immigrants and that, accepting
tho duties set forth, ho -would depart
upon tho business Immediately.
Mr. Cooke, ax the regular meeting of
tho Hoard of Immigration at 8:3Q
o'clock this morning, no tilled his fellow
commissioners of tho receipt of the
cablo from their chairman. This was
oil the business done at tho meeting.
No action was necessary and nono was
token beyond recording the fact that
Mr. Atkinson had accepted.
Mr. Cooke did not deem It wise at
the present tlmo to give out tho full
text of tho cable from Jack (or publi
cation. He stated that Mr. Atkinson
had accepted the proposition and that
ho would loso no tlmo in getting to the
Azores and, possibly the Madeira Is
lands. Should he fall to flnd-condltlont
cither In tho Azores or Madeira such
as show good prospects of securing the
required I'ortugucso families, the Ter
ritorial Secretary will probably go to
Northern Italy and seo what can bo
done there. It Is thought, however, that
he will have to go no further than the
Mr. Atkinson Is expected back Id
Honolulu about tho first of April. On
bis return the matter of sending a man
to tako charge of seeing that the Im
migrants get hero will bo settled by
the Hoard. Atkinson will look up the
matter of a steamship, for the trans
portation of the Immigrants, in New
York. Aa previously published, the
shipment of laborers and future clt
lions will probably come by the To
hauntcpec route In July or August.
This morning J. P. Cooke, W. O
Smith, W. M. Olrtard and Alexander
Young, the latter Incidentally, were ob
served on the street In significant com
munion. Theso gentlemen represent
Immigration, plantation, steamship
and general business Interests and It
Is not every day that such representa
tive street-corner confab Is held. Dul
lness men In passing, turned with tho
remark: "Something doing!"
They may have been discussing the
glorious future of Honolulu 'or they
may liavo been debating tho possibility
of moro rain, or they may have been
talking of the cable from Jack.

tailed to meet with Governor Carter In
the Governor's office this afternoon, to
discuss tho details of tho mission to
tho capital to urge rovenuo for Hawaii,
Chairman W. O. Smith this morning
sent out calls to each members of the
delegation to join him at the Gover
nor's omce, for consultation.
The matter of a press representative
accompanying tho delegation to Wash
ington Is at present all In the air, with
Oeorgo Henshall's namo leading what
talk there. Is for tho proposition.
Said a member of tho delegation this
afternoon. Tho matter has not been
discussed at all; Indeed, the members
have had no consultation on anything
to do with tho trip. All I know Is that
we are to meet at the Governor's ofllco
it 2 o'clock this afternoon.
If tho delegates have not discussed
tho matter of the press representative,
outsiders have and while many favor
tho idea they do not agree with a man
who remarked this morning:
"What! Tako a press representative
along! Why not also tako a doctor and
Others havo voiced similar senti

mains to be seen.

Commissioner J. P. Cooke reported
at a special meeting of tho Doard of
Immigration this afternoon that Treas
urei Hutchinson of Qonsalvcs Co.,
who had been suggested as going to the
Azores for laborers, had stated that
he could not possibly go. Hutchinson
thought no one but Secretary Atkinson
would be needed In the preliminary
work. Atkinson was this afternoon
cabled to proceed alone. An assistant
v juld bo sent later If needed. He was
asked to cable the date of his depart
use, from the States for the Azores.
Atkinson In his cable tn the Hoard, re
ceived today, asked for Hutchinson as
on assistant. n

10 THEIR IEIS
The Hawaiian custom of throwing
lels to friends on shoro whom they arc
leaving behind, perhaps .forever, Is
still In evidence at the departure of all
ocean vessels, but many of thtf tour
'sts and 'other now'-comers refuse ta
adopt the much-loved practice: they
(Mink too much of the beautiful flow
ers themselves and prefer to tako
them away. This fact Is particularly
noticeable when tho boats aro pulling
out. Tho new-comers learn tho custom
by seeing the other people, Hawallans
and Honolulu residents, and In case
they aro fortunate enough to have
Iricnda at tho wharf to seo them off
they get busy waving handkerchiefs
or tipping their hats, but In the mean
time hang onto the lels. Now and then
a tourist will toss a wreath asboro,
Just for appearance's sake, but they
do not do It as a rule. Tho distribu
tion of lets at tho steamers Is a cus
tom that is over remembered by tho
rtople who visit tho islands.
It takes some people longer to make
up their mind than the sizo of the
mind would seem to warrant.

DISSENTING OPINION BY HARTWELL

In tho famous Morlta Kalzu case. In trohlbltivo. Such Jurisdiction has

Jtistlco Hartwcll dissenting. Tho syl
labus Is as follows:
Under tho naturalization laws nf thn
Tnlted States and the Organic Art tha
Circuit Courts or this Territory have
lower to naturalize.
Says the opinion of the court by Wit
tier, J Hartwcll, J dissenting:
Defendant was indicted for murder
by a Grand Jury composed of sixteen
members at the August, 190S, term of
the Circuit Court of tho Fourth Cir
cuit. Ho filed a plea In abatement to
the effect that eight of tha members of
the Grand Jury wcro aliens and there
fore Incllglblo and Incompetent to act.
It appeared that soma time between
June 14, 1900, and August 1, 1905, each
dI said eight Grand Jurors being enti
tled to be naturalized applied for a
judgment of naturalization to the Cir
cuit Court of tho Fourth Circuit, and
upon such applications being consid
ered tho Court pronounced upon carh
of tho applicants a Judgment of natur
alization. Tho main question for decision Is
whether under tho naturalization laws
