Unless Chairman Huslnco of tlio
Hoard of Supervisors recedes from
Ills present, position nml nllows Coun
ty Attorney Catlicnrt to run Ills own
office Instead of Its being run tiy llus
tnce, tlio matter of tlio deputy to tlio
County Attorney will bo taken to tlio
courts nnd fought out there. A state
ment to this effect was mado Uy
Catlicart Inst night nt the meeting of
tlio Hoard of Supervisors.
As has been expected, tho matter
of the resignation of Deputy County
Attorney Olson and Cathcart's ap
pointment of l'rod. Mllvcrton In his
place was tho chief subject of debate.
Ilustaco tried to prevent any rurther
discussion of tho matter by putting
his foot down and stating that tho
matter hnd been settled nt tlio pre
vlmiH meeting, when tho Hoard re
fused to accept Olson's resignation
aim confirm tho appointment of Mll
vcrton. "Tho Hoard considers Mr.
Olson tho Deputy County Attorney,"
ho said, "and therefore Mr. Mllvcr
ton does not oxlst."
Hut Catlicart refused to consider
Mllvcrton n dead one, and once more
tinted his position to tho Hoard, In
listing that ho was tho County At
torney and should bo allowed to tun
his own oincu nnd appoint whom ho
pleased h his deputy, lto mado n
clear nnd logical statement of the
law In tho matter and of what he con
tldcrcd Ills rights, and related nt
length tho facts ond occurrences
which had led up to his requesting
OUm to resign.
Hut with Ilustaco this was about
r.s cffectlvo as a pin prick In tho hide
of n fhrlnoccros, and In tho end the
matter remained as It had been In
tho beginning. Cathcart announced
emphatically that ho refused to rcc
Lgnlzo Olson as deputy since, the be
ginning of the year; Olson still clung
tenaciously to his Jl't-a-month lob;
Ilustaco planted his feet itrinly and
refused to budgo, nnd tho Hoard,
with the exception of Harvey, sat
This by no means, however, ends
tho trouble, and It Is fairly certain
to be tho cnuso of another scrap at
tho next meeting, unless somo Bort of
tcttlemcnt Is arrived at In tho mean
time. Cnthcnrl's reason for wanting to
get rid of Olson nnd appointing Mll
vcrton In his place, as stated by htm
Inst night, amounts to this: Ho wants
i man who will do n fair proportion
of tho woilc of tho ofllco In return fur
his salary. Hustuco wants u deputy
who will bo his own conlldcntlal ad

' JNO. W. CATHCART,
This, nddrchscd to nobody In par
ticular, wns read by tho clork ns n
communication to tho Hoard. Ho was
quickly corrected by Cathcart, how
ever, who btatcd that tho notice wns
merely to lio filed In tho clerk's of
fice. "If I had meant it 'for tho
Hoard," said Cathcart, "I would havo
addressed it to the Hoard."
Hustace Stands by Olson
Tho mutter wns accordingly pass
ed. Hustuco asked Cathcart It he
wished to address tho Hoard, but
tho County Attornoy shook his head.
Shortly nfter ho stated to tho
Hoard that slnco the first day of Jan
uary ho did not rccognlzo Mr. Olson
us Deputy County Attornoy.
"That matter was discussed at the
Inst meeting, Mr. Cathcart," said
Hustace, "nnd tho Hoard consldors
Mr. Olson tho Deputy County Attor
ney." I merely wished to stnto my posi
tion. Our Ideas of law dllfer, It

ney. Milverton a Dead One
Later on Harvey brought the sub
ject up again. Ho Bald ho thought
tho mutter should bo settled,
"Tho Hoard has refused to rccog
nlzo tlio dismissal of Mr. Olson," said
Hustace, "and ho is still tho Deputy
"If I may interrupt for a minute,"

"Mr. Olson's resignation was not ac
cepted, nnd therefore Mr. Milverton
docs not oxlst."
"I object, "-said Cathcart, "to your
using tho word 'dismissal. Mr. 01
con was not dismissed. He resign
ed." "At your request," said Hustace.
"Well, yes; thero is no dcslro on
my part to suppress any of tho facts.
Tho matter stands this way: At tho
time. I tool: ofllco I appointed Mr. Ol
ton my deputy for sixty da)s whllo 1
was away. On my ictiiru home, Mr.
Olson said ho would llko to bo reap
Iiolnted. Ho told mo that his con
nection with tho linn of Holmes &
Stanley was such that he could not
nppenr In court. Ho could only do
Mich work as ho could do at night.
"I explained to Mr. Olson thnt At
torucy General Peters had told ma
that ho expected shortly to throw
nearly all tho criminal work of his
department onto the County Attor
ney, and thnt I would have u great
ileal to do. I should bo glad to havo
Mr. Olson rcmnln as my deputy, It
tho work could bo done. Hut If 1
lound that tho arrangement was un
satisfactory on nccount of his Inabil
ity to nppear In court or remain in
tlio offlce, I might havo to ask for his
resignation. Mr. Olson said that ho
would resign whenever I wished It."
Cathcart then went on to stnto
how tho work of his ofllco had In
creased, nnd how ho hnd had to do
nearly nil tho work. This left too
much work for ono man to do, and
ho had gone to Olson In a friendly
manner and explained the circum
stances, saying ho felt obliged to
havo n deputy who would tnko nt
least half of tho work. As Mr. Olson
wns unnblo to do this, ho had asked
for his resignation. Their conversa
tion had been entirely friendly, nnd
ho felt surprised that Olton, when
asked at the last meeting why ho had
tendered his resignation, had not ex
plained tlio circumstances. Cathcart
thon asked Olson whether ho had
stated tho matter correctly.
Olson said that ono statement was
.ncarrcct. He hnd never promised to
icslgu It ho should bo nsked. At tho
previous meeting ho had not cared to
tlalo that his rcslgnutton watt on ac
count of congestion of work in tho
County Attorney's office, for ho did
not bcllcvo thnt to ho tli6 only reason
his resignation was asked for.
"Your resignation wns voluntary,
vns It not?" asked Cathcart.
"It certainly was," replied Olson.
"And that makes it effective, does
"That is a question of doubt," said
Hustace then took his turn at ask
ing questions, stating also that ho
understood thnt tho Attornoy Gen
eral Intended to appoint a man to
assist Cathcart in tho criminal work,
i,nd thcreforo thoro would bo no need
of a chnngo in tho dcputyshlp.
"I expect my deputy to givo ns
murh work to tho ofllco as I do," in
Olson then told of how hard ho has
worked. Ilustaco backed him up by
stating that on scvcr.il occasions ha
had gono to Olson nnd nsked his ad
vlco on various matters. "You do
jour work In tho daytime, Mr. Cath
cart," ho said, "and Mr. Olson does
his at night."
Wants a Deputy Who Will Work
"I am the head of the department,"
oturncd tho County Attorney, "and
I think I should bo allowed to choose
whether I will work at night and my
deputy In tho daytimo or whether ho
shall work at night nnd I In tho day
time. And without any reference to
what tho Attornoy General may do, I
want n deputy who will spend his
timo In my ofllco, bo thero If I
should bo Blck or nwny, and who will
assist mo in thu court work. And 1
think I am entitled to It. I rcgrut
exceedingly that Mr. OJwm and 1
ihould have to part ns wo do. Tak
ing tho stand In law that I do, tho
matter will havo to bo fought out In
tho courts. I think Mr. Olson Bhould
bo perfectly willing to rotlro."
Tho discussion was dropped here
without any further action.
That Christmas Present
Another matter was brought up by
Ilustaco which contains the elements
ct a marry row wlion It comes beforo
tho Hoard again. Hustace stated
that ho understood that there was
coino troublo In tho road work at
i:vn which ought to bo Investigated.
Ho appointed Dwlght and Archer a
committee to look Into tho matter
nnd find out what was wrong. "If
there Is anything wrong, let us find
It out and put it right," said tho
Chulrmnn. "Wo don't want any
nionkoy business in any of the de
partments." That was all for that tlmo. Hus
tace refuses to explain what monkey
business he refers to, but It is under
stood that the troublo arises over tlio

Castle's Application For
Forest Lease Is
A lctt'T road at tho meeting of the
Hoard of Agrlctiltuio and Forestry
yesterday cieatcd consldeiablo stir
I'tuong tho members, not only ou nc
count of what tho letter contains, but
nlso because of the way It was word
ed. Tlio letter wns written by James
H. Castle, nnd wns referred to the
Hoard by Land Commissioner Pratt.
Chairman Holloway read tho letter
aloud, only stopping now mid then to
Indulge In n chuckle nil by himself,
nnd when ho had finished, tlio rest of
tho Hoard members gazed nt oach
"Whnt does It moan?" asked ono,
unci again blank looks were exchanged
around thu tabic. The maze of figures
nnd questions nf profit nml loss hnd
como upon them so suddenly that
they wero utterly nt a loss for words
Chairman Holloway, who recovered
first, saw tho condition of affairs, nml
advised thu board to turn tho letter,
which seemed to lino something to
do with trees, etc., ocr to Forestry
Superintendent Hosmcr, and his sug
gestion wns nctod on. Hut Mr. Hos
mar did not Quito understand the
duties which had been foisted on him,
mid another half hour was well-spent
In explaining. Hut not a word us to
tlio contents of tho kite
Tho text of tho matter is thnt
J. 11. Castle wants a Icaso of the gov
ernment forest lands on Komi and
Kau, nnd ns a royalty offers to pay
four per cent of nil Incomo derived
from tho land, guaranteeing that It
shall not bo computed on smaller re
turns than those derived from n ccr
tain fixed prlco for koa lumber, koa
firewood, nnd ohln lumber and posts.
Continuing, tho letter says that Mr
Castle, It given tho lease, will havo n
railroad through tho district started
In two years, finished to Kona In four
years, nnd completed In six cnrs. No
tlco was called to tho fact that rail
roads aro tho greatest devclopeia of
tho age. Mr. Castlo ended up the
letter with tho statement thnt I
was his Intention to mako money for
the government as well as himself.
Hccauso u man from Australia,
claiming to bo a veterinarian but hav
ing no license nor certificate, had
failed to report u rasa of glanders
which ho had discovered, It wns the
sense of tho Hoard, after thu matter
had been threshed out thoroughly, to
prosecute severely anyone falling to
report cases of tho disease. It wns
bhowu thnt tho Orientals of thu city
will conceal thu disease from tho eyes
of tho Inspector, If possible, and try
to euro them without medical old. Ono
boy, taking a glandcred animal to tho
qunrantlno pound, wns stopped tluec
limes by Japaneso and offered from
115 to J 20 for the home.
Dr. Norganrd boaid etcrlnarlan,
rt'iortcd coml'Meim in I.almlnn, whero
ho has recently vlflttd to bo duo from
wiccrtalu causes, though somo cases
point to ccrcbro-spluul meningitis. Dr.
I'ltzEerald's report concerning tho dis
trict in tho region of Wnlpo and Wn.
maun gulches was heard. Tho com
mittee on Animal Industry was given
power to send tho vcteiluarlau to an
other Island without session of the
Hoard. Forester Hosmcr submitted n
report of tho work that hud been clone
In his department slnco tho last meet
ing of the Hoard.
Land Commissioner Pratt wroto to
Inrorm tho Board that thero was a
treat deal of trespassing of govern
ment land In tho forost rcscrvo of
Walmanu, Hawaii. A letter from Glf
ford Plnchot, head of tho Federal for
ectry scrvlco, was read. It explained
how tho application for a $2000 ap
propriation for forestry servlco In Ha
waii hail not bean granted.
Tho following loiter by Dr. Nor-
annrd, to bo sent out to tho various
counties, was read and approved:
"At a recent meeting of tho Hoard
of Commissioners of Agrlculturo nnd
Forestry, tho Territorial Veterlnnrlnn
ruhnilttod for tho consideration of tho

"In view of this situation tho Hoard
