HE DENIES RUMOR
Summons All Friends to
Luau to Launch
(From Sunday's Advortlsor.)
Bob Shlnglo wants to go to Washington
as the successor of Cupid. Kuhio,
1b slated for Joo Fern's job at the olty
hull, and H. L. Holstoin, the national
committeeman, is going to tho mainland
as soon as may bo to tako part
in tho scrap over delegations, and put
in a fow hard licks at tho Froar administration
-wherever he thinks thoy
will do the most good. On the whole
tho political pot is bubbling, right merrily.
Shingle and tho Shinglites nro dodging
the responsibility for tho report of
Bob's secret ambitions. Indeed Shingle
and not a fow of the more prominent
members of tho Kuhio crowd have gone
to the trouble of donying privatim and
seriatim the statements that he wants
to bo delegate to congress and wants
Cupid mayor of Honolulu. But thero
are just as good men on tho other sido
of the fenco who do not hesitate to say
that tho suggestion came from Shingle
in the first place, nnd was made by him
to tho Taft Leaguers.
This revives the statement mado in
Tho Advertiser months ago that Shinglo
was ambitious to become Hawaii's representative
in congress, although
denied the rumor at tho time. It
was tho first movo on tho local political
choss board to get rid of Kuhio, nnd
offer him tho booby prizo of being Honolulu's
mayor with a pension of $250
a month, an 'auto, a secretary and an
Shlnglo Luau and Boom.
A political luau is to bo given today
at tho Pearl Harbor homo of Col. Sam
PnTkor and Shinglo, for-the "Immortal
Soventy," who stood by tho Kuhio
ticket in tho convention. Somo of tho
"seventy" aTe on other Islands, but
proxies will bo used today, so that tho
list will be complete. In addition, there
will bo 'A largo number of other friends
asked to attend tno pow-prow. A special
train will leave Honolulu at 10
o'clock this morning carrying about
two hundred people. It iB belioved that
tho delegate boom of Mr. Sliingle will'
bo carefully presented to tho feasters.
Holstein, who was among tho list of
for tho Chicago
convention, will be ono of the
leaders in tho Kuhio fight against Governor
Frear in Washington. Mr. Holstein
is reported as saying that thero
is np use now in going to Washington
to fight the reappointment of Governor
FrcaT, but ho will carry tho fight into
tho national committee room. This committee
is to consider tho protest filed
by. tho against the appointment
of the Governor.
Charges Aplenty Popping.
It is Btatcd with certainty that thoso
opposed to tho Governor, who are going
to Washington, will charge the
Frear faction with coercion and bribery
in connectiqn with their recent
victory in tho territorial convention.
The Freantos laugh when this charge
is made, and say that there Is something
they might bring to tho surfaco
on the Kuhio faction relative to 'i certain
check which they allege was filed
with the Inter-Island Steamship company
as payment for the passage of a
number of delegates from othor Islands,
all of whom came as Kuhio voters,
and opposed to Froar. This check matter
will bo aired should the
make too much of a fight before
Governor Frear may leave the latter
part of May for Chicago and Washington.
Charles Bice of Kauai, who, it is
expected, will bo national committeeman
for Hawaii, succeeding IL L. Holstein,
will leave about May 29. John
WIbo may leave about the middle of
May bb ho toxpects to go to Oberlin to
attend ccommcneemcnt exercises, be-foregoing
to the Chicago convention as

LIVE HAWAIIAN FISHES
The demand for live Hawaiian fishes
is increasing nnd every month a new
request for them is registered at the
promotion committee's office. Sydney
wants live fishes; Brussels wants a liberal
number of species, and now Paris is
in line for nny if they are to be had.
Tbo Paris aquarium director has had his
interest in Hawaiian fishes stimulated
by tho collections of postal cards showing
the native species, and he now
wants n description of the Honolulu
aquarium, the method of tanking fish,
and wants to know how they are caught,
and what methods are used to transport
them to other places,

The ontlro first week of Juno for Honolulu's
second "clean-up" Is tho suggestion
advanced by Ed. Towse, one of
tho spoccial committee of tho Central
Improvement Association which has tho
matter in hand.
Mr. Towso talked over tho necessity
for another 'Clean-Up Day" for Honolulu
with President- Pratt of tho
board of health yesterday, finding tho
health official very much in favor of
tho idea. It was during the conference
that tho suggestion of a "Clean-Up
Week" was broached. Tho suggestion
ought to find favor with tho general
public, al through its adoption could bo
avoided tho hang-over mirup of tho
first attempt to wash Honolulu's faco
and brush Honolulu's teeth and make
Wook of Inspection.
"Our committee has not yet written
its report and it might be proninture to
say now just what wo may recommend,"
Baid Mr. Towse yesterday,
"but it is likely thot we will tako
up tho Cloan-Up Week idea and urge
It upon the improvement 'association.
Our idoa will bo to have a corps of
or seventy voluntcor inspectors to
go over tho town during tho first fivo
days of tho week, explaining to the
people what should bo dono and encouraging
tevoryone to do bis own share
toward making a Spotless Town. Then,
on tho sixth day, when everyone has
his piles of debris Teady to cart away,
wo would arrange to have tho carts of
tho city garbago department, tho wagons
of tho road department, whatever
drays and and wagons wo can have
lent usand whatever others wo may
have to hire mako a general collection.
It iB unlikely this timo, with what we
havo learned in tho past, that wo would
have any great quantities of debris left
"Fortunately, as all tenement houso
proprietors, restaurantkecpors, lodging
houso people and such havo to renew
their licenses, on July 1, and cannot
secure renewals until after their promises
havo been inspected and found
clean and sanitary, we will havo no
trouble at allTn getting them to
hoartily with us.
"Our Clean-Up Week, if it is decided
to havo ono, coming after tho efficient
scouring dono by the men of tho
.Citizen's SanitaTy Committee 'and tho
work of tho first Clean-Up Day, should
about finish up everything there may
bo to do in making Honolulu an absolutely
clean and sanitary city."
ON A CHARGE OF
(From Sunday's Advertiser.)
Strong man Antono Pirri who was
one of tho stars in tho Honolulu Amusement
Company's firnrauent, that set
soon, was a strong man to such good
intents and purposes that tho San Francisco
police swore out a warrant against
him on charge of Jarccncy, declaring he,
"lifted" trunks all the way from the
Golden Gate to Honolulu.
Ch'ief McDufua yesterday received a
letter from Acting Chief of Police Shea
of San Francisco. Tho mainland officials,
it seems, ycre unwilling to resort
to oxtradition for the strong man
and merely asked McDufiio to inirtco
him to Teturn the trunks. Tho chief,
however, had the pleasure of cabling
back that Pirri had left on tho
trunks and all. He is also
accused of being a bigamist.
Tho trunks wore stolen, according to
tho letter, from Mrs. Pearl Pirri, tico
Rockwell, who Pirri married in Jios
Angeles on March 5, 1913 without tho
formality of a divorco from amother
wife. He had wanted wifo No. 2 to

HILO, April 2G. Whilo Hilo was
worrying about Filipino burglars, tho
suburb of Olaa has worse troubles.
Thero thoy sent burglars to jail, only
to find them parading about in their
old haunts a few days later.
The trouble at Olaa began a fow
weeks ago, when the railroad station
oflico nt Eight Miles was robbed.
When tho station agent went to -work
one morning, ho discovered that his
ticket box had disappeared. It was
found later nbout half a mile from tho
house. It had been broken open, but
nothing had been taken but a pioco of
chalk. Further investigation disclosed
tho fact that the burglars hnd tried to
open tho door of tho steel safe by
twisting tho knobs off tho hincs.
Plantation Officer Coleman was called
in by the agent, no saw from tho
foolish attempt which had been mado
on tho safe, that the burglary was tho
work of inexperienced hands, so he set
out to find them. Coleman ran down
a couple of suspicious-looking Filipinos,
and theso ho took with him to tho jni),
where ho kept them locked up for In
HAWAII COURT RESTORER

HILO, April 20. When Daniel. F. B.
Henry scoured from Mrs. Sarah B.
Lacerdo a deed to all her property in
Puna, he ffid so by the excrciso uf un-duo
influence and by fraud. This was
the decision rendered Tuesday by Judge
Parsons in tho suit to cancel the deed,
brought by Mrs. Lacerdo against Henry, j
Tiio court ordered that the deed be
canceled and that tho 'defendant pay
tho costs of tho case.
In its decision tho court states that
tho defendant is the brother of the
plaintiff's lato husband. She was the
owner of land at Kaohe, valued at
$5000, and of a houso and lot at
valued at $1800. Tho plaintiff,
says the court,, is inexperienced in
ncss matters, has never had tho care
and management of property, is addicted
to tbo excessive use of intoxicating
liquors, is of slight intelligence and uf

On tho death or tno plaintiff's husband,
tho defendant, with his family,
went to live with tho widow, and the
two soon becamo very friendly and

Lacerdo came to look upon Henry as

tho way of clues to go on, but finally
ho discovered that tho two had been
concerned in a couplo of other burglaries
which had been committed in
the Chinese quarters during thnt same
night, and the men wcro convicted on
charges connected therewith. " Judge
Ferry gave them a year each in jail.
So to tho Jlilo jail wcro sent tho two
Filipinos, and tho Olaa pcoplo breathed
moro freely, when, n fow days later,
they found to their surprise that ono of
tho men, who was supposed to bo safely
under the guardian wing of Jailer
Mnby, was once more in town. It'is
reported that when 'ho was accosted,
he produced a paper, signed by the
authorities, warning thoso whom it
might concern that the bearer was under
police protection, nnd thnt ho was
out on business both privnto nnd
urgent, or words to thnt effect. On
this showing tho jailbird managed to
enjoy his freedom for several days.
Then tho matter was called to tho attention
of Judge Ferry, nnd then ended
the Filipino's littlo vacation, for tho
judge refused to tako notice of his
official letter nnd had him sent back to
jail, where ho iB now.

After that Henry urged tho widow
to transfer tho remainder of her property
to him, saying that it would bo
safer for him to hold it, nnd assuring
her that ho would, when so requested,
rcconvcy it to her. September 27, 1010,
Mrs. Lacerdo became suddenly ill,
suffered great jiain und feared that sho
would not recirver. Henry repeated to
her his request that bIio convey the
.property to him, saying that ho would

quest, on the terms mentioned, and
William Kecdanul und Archlo Ilapai
were sent for. With tho aid of a
book uf forms theso two prepared tho
cimiemca it was in English,
and Mrs. Lacerdo said sho under
stood it, but, .us a matter of fact, she
thought ut the timo sho signed it thnt
she was executing u trust conveyance
for tho benefit of herself and her son.
When Mrs. Lacerdo had rccovored
from her illness, she discovered, or tho
urst time, In consultation with her attorney,
Judge "Wiso, sho had made nn
absolute cunveyancee of her property
to Henry. January 11, 1011, Henry
admitted to Wise that ho was holding
the property named in tho deed for the
widow und her son, but, when Wiso
demanded that he reconvoy it to her,
Henry refused to do so.
Henry in his defense claimed that
he was tho owner of tho property in
