Fortification appropriations as made
up for this session of Congress look

of the contlnunnco. I protested with

ent be arraigned, at least, and that I
bo given an opportunity to seo the
warrant of arrest and find out what
Me chargo was, as I had only learned
tho facts through a Chlncso Interpre
ter. The judgo said ho had no war
rant; that If there was one It was In
tho possession of Kckauoha. The lat
ter at first denied having such a docu
ment and then dented my right to sco
It until the case camo up for trial:
laid thero was no law that compelled
him to let tho defendant sco what
charge was brought against him until
the caso was up for trial) Ho further
refused point blank to Interpret to the
court my request for an arraignment,
while all tho court would say was ' The
caso Is postponed, tho caso Is postpon
ed." As tho final result of tho caso
showed, all of this was mcro pretext
on the part of Kakauoha to get rid ot
Lcong Wah Kce's attorney and wit
ness, for on tho Monday following I
was not nblo to go down again to
Laic, and Kckauoha', by promising
Leong Wah Kce that he would be let
off with a smalt fine, secured a plea
of guilty, and Nalnoa Imposed a flno of
Thrco Dollars. I had carefully In
structed Lcong Wah Kce not to plead
guilty, for the facts showed his com
plete Innocence ot tho chargo ,and I
was afraid of Just such a gamo upon
tho part of Kckauoha. Now tho re
sult of tho matter Is that tho defend
ant's license may bo revoked at any
Hmo by tho Treasurer of tho Terr!
lory and his bond forfeited.
At tho tlmo of tbo arrest of Lcong
wah Kce on tho chargo mentioned
above. Kckauoha found in bis nossca
Hon a shotgun. This ho immediately
confiscated, and when tho Chlncso
protested ho was told that ho bad no
right to have a gun In his possession
without a license. When I asked Kc
kauoha why ho did this, and stated to
him that tho law regarding shooting
licenses had been repealed In 1905 and
that thero was no law forbidding n
man's having a gun In his possession,
Kckauoha asked what business It was
Df mine, and said Impudently: "Well,
what aro you going to do about It, any
way." Whilo preparing notices of appeal In
tho Leong Wah Kca caso abovo men
tioned, I was a spectator ot the kind
of Justice that is meted out to the peo-
filo ot Koolauloa by Kckauoha and Na
noa A Japancso had been arrested
tor selling liquor without a license.
Tho proceedings were all In, Hawaiian
(tor Nalnoa speaks llttlo or no Eng
llsh) and tho Judge took notes on looso
scraps ot paper, that being his method
of complying with tho law regarding
tho records of district magistrates.
Thero seemed to bo no question ot tho
defendant's guilt nnd tho Judgo was
l bout to nronounco sentence when I
noticed that Kckauoha was calling his
attention to tho Chapter on tno salo of
Intoxicating liquors In tbo Revised
Laws. This chapter was repealed In
toto by tho Legislature of 190S, ns joit
sro aware, and when I Informed Ko-
Icauoha of that fact, ho was complete
ly taken aback and would not bcllovo
tno, scoffing at my statements. I was
reluctant to sco an Ignorant Japancso,
who wns without counsel, suffer flno
pr imprisonment, so I called Kcknu
