Grand Jury investigates
Graft Charge Against
The statement that Senior Cap

suspended, which appeared In tlio
morning paper, created a great deal
of excitement about the police sta
tion this morning, until It was learn
ed that that veteran otllccr was not
even In any danger of suspension,
and that tha whole report was a mis
representation. The facts of the case aro that Rob
ert Parker Ji one of tho sous of the
captain, came to the station yester
day under tho Influence of liquor,
and his sire, on learning of this, Im
mediately plajcd the part of the Ro

Drug Co., Ltd.
The ahsuid charges made by tho
morning paper to the effect that
County Attorne) Cathcart has violat
ed his oath of ofllio li handling civil
cases Involving a criminal chaige
Ugalnst his clients, arc almost uni
versally regirdcd merely us showing
how fai the opponents of Cathcart
have to go to find material against
him us a candidate tor re-election.
Even those who do not believe In tho
practice of public prosecutors taking
civil cases, and, as a matter of fact,
this practice has been followed by
such prosecutors In all departments
for man) jcars, say that at best tho
matter Is not a fit subject for a polit
ical r.ttack. As It Is, Cathcart is able
to ihow that he has, far from violat
ing the practice In such matters, fol
lowed the decisions of tho Circuit
"In regard to the attack on mo In
tbl J morning s paper," said County
Attorney Cathcart. "I would say,
in refeienco to tho Ah Chen matter,
that at no time while any criminal
charge was pending against Ah Cheo
did I appear for him in a civil nction.
"It Is true thut about six monthi'
before any .charge was made, he re
tained me to defend him in a civil
action of trespass. The cuso was
tried and disposed of long beforte any"
criminal charge was made against
him He wua prosecuted vigorously,
as ill our cases arc, and his acquittal
was through no fault of tho County
Attorney's office. Ho is n merchant
at Wuialua, and has been engaged In
the mercantile business for many
carB there. The criminal charge
against him was for selling liquor Il
licitly. "As to Mr". Humphrey' statements
before the Supreme Court, he, as usu
al, went outsldo of the lecord, and,
as usual, tho COurt sat down upon
him, intimating that his remarks
vvero not proper. I presume, Mr. Hum
phres know that It was not proper
to go outside of tho record to make
a personal attack on me, but if ho did
not know It before, the Supremo
Court has Informed him sufficiently,
so that ho knows It now.
"In reference to tho statements of
J ml go Do Holt I would say that, somo
time ago we had u conversation ou
tho subject of my appearing In di
vorce cases. I brought tho matter up
myself, and while Judge Do Dolt was
Inclined to believe that, perhaps, I
had better not appear, ho expressed
no disapproval of my appealing, cer
