Attorney General Ilenienwny this
morning received from his First Dep
uty, W. I.. Whitney, tho following
wireless from Wn'lukui
"Judgo dlsnilsrcs murder Indict
ments on ground not commissioned
kpeclally for Second Circuit. Send
special commission "
This message Is not fully under-
fctood by the Attorney General, but ho
takes It that Judgo Kepoikai refuses
to consider that Whitney's com nils
blon as Deputy Attorney General or
tho Territory fs good in his court.
If this Is the cose. It would seem to
bo n very iiociillnr-nctioii on thu part
of Kepoikai, us Whitney's commission
o First Depot) of tho Attorney Gun
crnl'H department authorizes him to
represent the Territory In any Terri
torial Court That Kepoikai should
dlsmlsH the Indictments against two
men charged with murder on tho
ground that tho Deputy Attorney Gen
oral has no right to appear far tho
Terrllor) Is ery Btrange. Yot thut Is
wkat ha apparently has done, accord
ing to the way Attorney General Horn
unwpy reads the message. He sent
Whitney n special commission ttils
morning to represent tho Territory In
Judgo Kepolknl's court.
One of thu murder Indictments is
cgnlnt.t tho Japanese who Is charged
with having first assaulted and then
murdered u joting" Japanese girl In a
cano field on Maul and then attempted
to commit suicide, Tho Japanoso
claims that ho and tho girl agreed to
die together becausu her fathor would
not cousont In their mnrrlago on ac
count of her youth, and that the)
tried to r.trnnglu each other with a
bcatf, but that he lived and tho girl
died. When the pair were found, thu
girl wns dead and tho man uncon
scious, but he revived and was Indict
ed for her murder.
Kepolknl's dismissal of the Indict
merits probably moans that tho prl
oners will have to be re-lndlcted by
