OIL TEST LAW BROUGHT INTO ACTION
Paid Special Police
INQUISITION CALLS'MANY WITNESSES
Tho Territorial Grand Jury this
morning started Its work with an ex
amination of Police Department af
lalra. County Auditor Dlckncll was
tho first witness called. Ho brought)
with him, as was requested by tho
Grand Jury, the books of his office,
which showed the pay rolls of the I'o-
Itco Department and the signatures of
tho police officers, which they niado
when they drew their pay. Tho Grand
Jury wanted the pay rolls for Septcm
ber, October, November and December
of 1905 nnd January, 1906, only. Tho
only part of the rolls which Interested
them wag that showing tho paid spc
'clal officers, on which tho jurors con
centrated their attention.
Thcro are at present only seven pMil
upeclal officers on tho pay roll, name
ly, l-'icd. Larsen, Manuel Leal, Hong
Kuc, Joseph Nobrlga, Kallmapehu,
Charles Klvln and .George Wright.
Their Kalarles range from $20 to ISO
Tho examination of Auditor Blcknell
did not last very long. Akana Espln

Is quite a bit of a che-fa expert, was
called next, He was followed by
three Hawaiian women and finally ta

The Grand Jury Is evidently having
u feast an minor evidence. A large
number tf witnesses have been culled,
most of whom, judging from their ap
pearance, are probably players of tho
noble game rather than bankers. Borne
of them are agents In a small way. TJio
gathering of witnesses almost filled
the largo hall outside tho Jury room.
AH ages and nationalities and both
kcxe. were represented. Japanese,
Hawaiian, and Chinese prevailed. Su
Hilda, a Japanese, and his wife, who
wero both examined by tho Grand Jury
yesterday, were summoned to arpc.r
again this morning, evidently because
they have given valuable, cvldenco.
Thoy were, however, not called today.
Anln, who shows up at every session
with unfailing regularity, was excused
until 2 p. m. Tho Grand Jurors evi
dently want to keep an eyo on their
friend. At least, he is summoned to
be on hand every tlmo they meet.
A large number of Hawatlans of tho
poorer classes havo been called as wit
nesses. Many of them aro inveterate
cho-fa players. Among them wero a

Upon his own word,
K. Mlyashlta had tho novel oxper
lencet his morning of being a prosecut
ing witness one. minute and tho other
minute being arrcsto das a result of
his own evidence. It nil happened bo
cause ho tried to buy a wife for an
other man, and being paid In advance,
failed either to furnish the wlfo or re
turn tho money given him for that pur
pose. If J. Fugle had not come from Cal
ifornia to get a Honolulu bride, Mlyn
bhlta probably never would have had
so much 'trouble. Hut after all ho will
probably come out of the. affair with a
better knowledge of American laws re-,
gardlng tho retailing of wives and the'
ubv ui uiuuuy wiua cuiieuifu.
Fugle was living a lonely life. In San!
Francisco, and not being able to And 1
the woman of his heart there, ho con-
hided that in the Sunny Islands of lbs
Pacific one that would meet bis desires
could easily be obtained.
When ho arrived hero, he mtfdo the
acquaintance of Mlyashlta, who said he
was not a good hand In selecting wlvcb
for others, but ho would transact the
business through a friend of his who
lived in Iwllcl. This friend Is named
Komada. he said, and through him he
promised to obtain a suitable wife.
Fugle thereupon, so ho claims, paid
Mlyashlta three Japanese bonds, val
ued at 100 yen each Then he quietly
awaited tho coming of his brldo. When
he discovered, however, that his bonds
had been cashed nt tho bank, ho lost
his temper, and hunting Mlyashlta up,
demanded to know why ho had not ob
tained tho woman before cashing the
money. The latter explained that he
had given tho bonds to Komada, and
that he was to man to bo blamed. Then
Fugle made a fistic attack on Mlya
shlta. and was arrested by the latter
for the Indignity bo suffered as a re
sult. The whole matter was fully ex
plained today In the courft hrough an
Interpreter, and to Mlyashlta's surprise
his opponent was discharged, and he
was held to await a trial for the part
he took in the affair.
