Story Told on the Stand Statement!

Cae in the Circuit Court.
In the case of the Republic
against Carl Klemme and Gus
Cordes, the Circuit Court has
affirmed the decision of the District
Magistrate. A jury trial on the
charge of assault and batter re
sulted in a conviction. The fines
of $50 each were paid by the officers.
Kaulukou appeared for the
defense, and Deputy Attorney-General
There was quite a crowd in the
court room during the trial. These
gentlemen were the jurors : J. W.
Robertson, C.Y. Sturdevant, J. M.
Webb, Jas. Torbert, J. C. Quinn,
C. B. Gray, Peter High, George
Gray, William L. Hopper, C. F.
Wolfe, W. H. Smith, J. M. Tracy.
The transcript of the evidence in
the District Court was in the hands
of the prosecution. Witnesses who
tested orally for the Government
yesterday were Muller and three
native policemen. The defendants
made statements for themselves.
One of the witnesses for the defense
was not used this time. Mr. Robertson
was prepared to attack his
Muller wanted to " drop " the
prosecution. He so stated in
court. The Government insisted
on proceeding. The testimony was
to the effect that Klemme and
CordeB jumped on Muller at the
main entrance to the police etation
and used him roughly. Klemme
declared that he believed Muller
was about to draw a pistol on him
and use it. He had been told that
Muller was armed. Cordes, who is
lieutenant of the mounted police,
came to the aid of his captain. He
Eaid lie interlered when he saw
Muller chewing Klemme's finger.
He said he did not strike Muller at
all ; only shoved him.
There had been bad blood between
Klemme and Muller about
the politics of the Schuetzen Club.
Muller says that on the street one
day Klemme said to him : "I will
blow your brains out." Muller had
then asked permission of the
authorities to arm himself, but
this was denied.
Klemme and Cordes made a
strong point of the fact that Muller
had sent them a threatening message
through John L. Xavier. The
latter, it appears, was playing a
double game. He was associating
with Muller to get information for
Klemme. Muller proposed to
Xavier: "You go and tell
Klemme that I am carrying a
pistol for him. He will then
me. Of course I will not be
armed and I can then sue him for
damages." Xavier testified to this
in the District Court. Another incident
of the feud was that Muller's
room at a lodging house was
searched by a mounted policeman
one night without a warrant.
With Kaulukou's attempt to conduct
the case in English and the
linguistic imperfections of several
witnesses, the trial abounded in
beautiful specimens of the pure
and undefiled as "she is spoke."
At one elage of the trial Cortes was
making quite an address to the
jury. The deputy attorney general
called a halt on the orator.
Judge Cooper seemed quite vexed
over the determination of the larceny
case against George Malina.
The evidence was clear that the defendant
had stolen goods from
Wilder's warehouse. Nine of the
jurors returned the verdict, "we let
the defendant go." They were required
to change the form, and
made it not guilty. A. iv.
Mossman and Crowell
were for convicting. The nine jurors
will likely hear more of the
matter next Monday. In a couple

LINES FILLEDJITH PATHOS,
Letter From a Lady at the Kalihi
Would Like to be Called on by Some of
Her Friends la Resigned Mr.
L, M. Todd, a Nurse.
Mrs. L. Todd, who is at Kalihi
receiving station, sends an extremely
touching note to this office.
The lady is of a sensible
mind and must b." of strong character.
She accepts the situation
with a surprising show of courage.
Mrs. Todd is quite well known
here and has many friends whose
hearts will go out to her in this
crucial trial. Her only desire is to
speak to some of these friends before
she leaves for the settlement.
Below are the principal paragraphs
of the letter.
"I may be sent to Molokai this
week. I do not know about the time.
I am only a suspect and may not be
sent at all. I trust our Father in
heaven will so direct that I may remain
among friends and have the
privilege of going where I like. If
the Lord directs otherwise I shall bow
to His will and accept it with resignation.
"I have been iu the Kalihi receiving
station six weeks anil wish to in
form friends of roy whereabouts.
"I contracted the disease in San
Francisco, nursing small-pox victims
some years ago. I had lived on the
islands quite a time, yet had never
seen a case of leprosy
"The time that Ashford and Wilcox
got into that trouble atid were put in
jail, my husband, A. A. Todd, made
his escape. He left at 3 o'clock in the
morning, going to Apia, Samoa, on
tue steamer Aiameua. wnat property
he did not sell he leased. I left the
little income for thechildren and went
to San Francisco, thinking I could
make mouey there as a nurse.
"They had small pox on the coast at
that time, and I have always made a
specially of infectious diseases. I am
an English trained nurse. I did not
lose a case I had at the lazarette,
though other patients died by scores.
This lazarette was a wretched, miserable
place, a disgrace to mankind.
In this filthy den I did the bestl
could for suffering humanity. It was
there I contracted this disease, if I
have it, and I suppose I have.
"I would sooner go to the settlement
and live quietly than to remain
in Honolulu as a suspect. I would
not like to go among my friends. I
would be pleased to see any friends
who can call, and will be grateful to
them. I believe permission can be
had from the Board of Health.
''I have nursed some of the best
people in the United States, and some
of the most pitable subjects of poverty
that can be imagined. Yet I never
complain. I was the third person
registered in the nurses' directory in

private cases there. Yet I was
never so happy as when in some public

"jt he Bull-dozed" la Mad.
Henry Klemme, the independent,
will contest. He gives notice
that he will sue to have the election
declared void. Klemme claims
that he was cheated on the 29th
ult. He believes a recount will
show that at least one A. U. P.
candidate was beaten and that
there were some flaws in the count.
Klemme is the man who was advertised
as "the people's representative."
He was the avowed candidate
of the Schuetzen Club from
which the mounted police cut off.
Klemme was defeated by four
In an interview yesterday Mr.
Klemme spoke with much earnestness
and was somewhat bitter in
his tone. He said that he knew
and that every fair-minded person
must know that he was elected. A
correct recount, he declared, would
show that he was entitled to a seat
in the house. He wanted his
rights and did not propose to be
"bull-dozed." The Schuetzen Club,
of which he is president, is pushing
the matter and bearing the
expenee, so he says. Mr. Klemme
added that people who thought
that the two Schuetzen Clubs were
at enmity would be fooled and
would soon be treated to a surprise
in political manipulation.
Mr. Klemme contends that he
really had as many votes as the
most popular candidate on the A.
U. P. ticket. He claims that all the
Portuguese voted for him, but that
their ballots were unceremoniously
tossed out. According to Klemme
he was given credit only for the
votes cast by "white men" and
some of these were overlooked
by the returning boards.
The contestant says that he has
the sympathy of plenty of good
people and mentioned the employees
of a very large German
wholesale house as having voted
