It Is a fact that every lujnl Honolulu
man bhould carry in his mind every
day, and at the same time do his ut
most to help tho good cause along.
The latest reminder Is the cable
gram from Washington to the effect
that tho Pearl Harbor Naval dock

This means more business for Ho
nolulu. It means growth for Hono
lulu. It means an addition to the
population ot tho right kind. It
means a nntlon-wlde recognition ot
the importance of Pearl Harbor, Ho
nolulu, and tho Territory of Hawaii.
It means development, and realiza
tion ot the great results to which Ha
waii has been looking forward for
almost two generations.
What is tho Honolulu man to do?
Walt to pick dollars oft the guava
bushes? Hardly that.

"Why.'.ycss I think I did out Wnl-
klki-way," answered MacfiUlnne.
"Well, as a matter ot fact," Bald
Wilder, "I didn't vote at all. 1 was
uway at that time."
Tho laugh which followed this can
did statement was so great that the
bailiff waji compelled to rap for or
der. All Petitioners Examined
Fred. Macfnrlano was tho first wit
ness questioned by the Court. Chief
Justice Hartwell asked him what his
Information In re Crawford was. Ho
stated that ho was called before tho
Territorial Central Committee, of
which he was n member, and there
certain charges were read, presented
nt the- meeting by Chairman Atkin
son. Tho Court asked him It this
was where he Rot his information
and he replied in tho afflrmhtlve. He
said he had no knowledge ot his own
In the. matter ot the charges. Chief
Justice Hartwell asked where he ovt
ed and ho answered "In the Second
ot the Fourth.'!
1,. S.'Conness stated that he met
one of the Inspectors after, the polls
were closed and this inspector told
htm that the polls were kept open
after C o'clock. Ergo, he signed tho
petition for a recount.
William Henry said that his Infor
mation was general regarding the
polls being kept open after C o'clock.
He said also that Mr. Fernandez, a
notary pubtlortold him that Craw
ford had kept false tally. Ho voted
In the Fifteenth ot the Fifth.
Col. Knox stated that he-based his
Information on what he heard. He
said that he was told Willie Craw
ford wanted to bet JIG that Achi
would win. He also said there was n
mistake in the count, he knowing
this because ho "was Inside tho
booth." This was In his own pre
cinct. Knox was asked by Watson
If he had ever been convicted of any
offense. Tho question was objected
to by RcpubJIcan counsel, but Knox
Btated that he had never been con
victed. James Kullke stated that ho had
knowledge of fraud In his own pre
cinct (the Fourteenth of Fifth) and
therefore he sfgned the petition. He
stated '.that. he jaw something wrong
going on wh'efl the votes wero' being
counted. Hot saw Btrange cross-
Lniarks on someTif the ballots. He also
heard that 'votes' wcrc'belng cast aft
er C o'clock in other precincts. He

Naone Is Deputy Sheriff ot Koolau.
Geo. A. Davis askcd-hlm If ho wns In
tho polling booth at which Willie
Crawford was stationed, checking
the names off as the voters went Into
the booth. Kullko answered in the
affirmative. Davis statod to the court
that ho wanted to show by the wit
ness that the,, Inspectors took Craw-
orcrs any as nnal. Kullke was pres
ent when the tally was taken. Ku
llke Bald that he heard the inspect
ors say that they accepted Craw
ford's, tally. He said that Crawford
offered to bet I2G that Charlie Achl
would recetvo the highest number ot
votes. B. M. Watson made a motion
that Kullke's testimony, is brought
out l)y Davis' examination, be strick
en from tho records. Davis then said
that he wished to provo that Craw
ford was wrongly in the polling
booth, keeping a tally-sheet when he
had absolutely no right to be there.
Justice Wilder stated that he wanted
to find out whether or not this peti
tion business was a sort of "fishing
expedition." Davis denied any such
Imputation. Kullke said that he
heard Crawford address about five
Chinese In the Chinese language as
they wept in to vote. When he aft
erwards asked a Chinese boy what
Crawford had said, the boy said that
the Chinese voters had been request
ed to work hard tor Cathcart.
Kullke was asked what he knew
about the voting ln the Second and
Third ot the Fifth District. To this
he answered that in the Walkane
district ho had talked with several
electors who had actual knowledgo
ot what took place there. In the
Third Precinct he hud conversations
with a number of men who also had
complaint to make, among those he
talked with being John Ah Sing, an
Inspector of election.
In the matter of the bet alleged to
have been offered by Crawford, tho
Chief Justice stated that the Court
wnB Inclined to consider this imma
terial. This was after a lengthy ar
gument between the attorneys as to
the admissibility of Buch evidence.
II, M. von Holt was the next wit
ness. He was sworn, and stated that
his information as to the charges In
the petition came mainly through ro
portnwhlch came to the Central
Committee and which he investigat
ed. He statod also that some ot his
Information came from Frank Ilertel
man and from James Kullke. He said
he heard Kullke say that Crawford
would put his pencil on the paper,
but not marking, when Lane's name
was called. Ho heard of rejected
ballots being picked up in Kakaako
htreets and being brought to J. C,
