SHIP SUBSIDY BILL
What the rallroad-rato legislation Is
to the mainland, tho ship-subsidy bill
is to Hawaii nnd all outlying territory
of the country.
There Is no lack of broad national
scope In both. The story of a nation's
progress Is told In Its transportation
ilevelopment. The mainland must
have the railroads properly Controlled.
The great ocean routes of trade must
have the ships. This Item of first Im
portance the ship subsidy will supply.
The flEht for this measure has been
hardly less determined than that for
tho canal or other great national proj
ects. Session after session It has oc
cupied tlmo and'been the subject of a
tremendous amount of hard work.
Thus far It has failed of passage. Each
session, however, has witnessed a
gain. Tho majority Just given tho bill
In tho Senate cannot fall to havo Us
effect In the House, nnd since tho Sen
ate now has under consideration Im
portant measures endorsed iy the
House, tho prospect Is rather encour
aging. Tho ship-subsidy law Is the only
sensible accompaniment of tho coast
wise shipping law. If Hawnll can
render Its advocates any assistance It
should not hesitate.

Charles Notley; John, Victoria M. K.,
Lily and Wm. Notley, minors, by their
guardian, W, S. Wine; nnd Mrs. Emma
Danford this morning filed their brlor
In tho case before the Supremo Court
wherein Chas. Notley Jr., Wm. Notley,
Maria Hughes ana David K Motley
aro contesting tho will of Chas. Notley
on tho grounds that It was made un
der tho unduo Influence of Mrs. Dan-
ford upon tho testator very much, to
tho disadvantage of the contestants,
After discussing the technical errors
the brief goes on to discuss what con
stltutcs unduo Influence. It shows
that there was no evidence produced
In the trial beforo Judgo Hoblnson,
whereby tho probate of tho will was
ronllrmed, to show that tho testator's
mind was dominated and controlled
by Mrs. Danford, or thnt she was guil
ty of using cither fraud, misrepresen
tation, circumvention, threats, nailery
or moral coercion to obtain a will pe
culiarly acceptable to her.
It lt shown that Dr. Herbert testi
fied that, Charles Notley "was not a
man who would be subject to a con
trolling Influence"; thnt "he was firm,"
and that "his mental condition during
tho six months preceding his death
was exactly as It was during his pre
vious life, clear and Intelligent." Co-
ell Brown's testimony Is also quoted,
showing that Notley was sound men
tally and exhibited no signs ot a fall
ing Intellect. Other witnesses aro
also emoted. To offset this, says the
brief, tho contestants can only show
tho testimony of c. I . CMimigworin
who said ho thought Notley enjoyed
The circumstances of tho making ot
the will and tho codicils aro given In
detail. It la shoni that Notley went
to Cecil Brown with a previous will,
which, he said, he wanted so changed
tha his son Charles should not get
any money, but that bis son a children
should get his sharo and that tho In
como should be hold until they became
Tho first codicil, dated August, 1900,
only provided for a chango ot execu
tors, cccli urown taking t. u. waf
Tho second codicil was dated April
11, 1902. Cecil Brown testified that
Notley came to him and asked him to
chango his will. Ho had been think
ing tho matter over, and had decided
that the homestead should bo given
to Mrs. Danford and not to bis son Da
vid. On Brown's suggestion tho codi
cil, when prepared, was brought to
Mrs. Dantord's house, whoro Notloy
was then staying, and was signed op
enly on a veranda. Mrs. Danford was
not present at Its execution, except
when sho brought tho pen and Ink
cnllert for by Notley,
It Is shown thnt Notley choso stran
gers ns executors of, his will becauso
ho could not trust his sons to manago
his largo estate. One was a leper, tho
other. In splto of his good education,
never aspired to rise higher than the
position of a dock laborer, and the.
third had been guilty of defalcation of
Regarding tho bequests of the will'
It Is shown thnt Mrs. Notley was an
old-fashioned Hawaiian ,who loved to
wash ana iron her own ciotnes, even
when servants were employed, and
that the J5.000 to $6,000 a year, which
sho- was given by the will, was suffi
cient for her modest needs. With re
gard to Charles Notley, It Is shown
that his father had no use for him be
cause his defalcation hnd.h'.irt his.
the father's, reputation, 'it Is shown
thnt Notley often spoke In scathing
terms of Charles, and that tho ton's
own conduct furnishes the rensonnhli
explanation ot his disinheritance.
Agnlnst this It Is shown that Mrs.
Danford received o.1y one-sixth of
the estato and the homestead.
With regard to Mrs. Dantord's ger,
cral lnflucnco In the Notley house
hold, tho brief deals at great length.
It Is shown that with tho exception
that sho, after fi'otloy had struck hie
wife, told him to "drive that black
woman out of tho yard," It did not ap
pear that sho, during her seventeen
years' stay, said or did anything of
fensive to any member ot the family,
nnd It Is shown that she by no meant
exercised an undue influence.
