s'slance from him led last Thurrday to .
the dismissal of tho five civil suits
brought by Brcckons for thci county
gainst Supervisor John Kealoha for
the recovery of various sum which the
county was alleged to huve lost through
Keainha.' ' -?, '' r-' .'-
While Deputy County; Attorney lloen
ppenred, for the prosecution, he W ,
unal le to go to trial, aa Brcckons had
sent him neither papers nor data, and
the only word be got was a request -from
the attorney general that he nave
the cases continued again. ' But the
court ..hnd to , toe . reskoned with, and
Judge Wise not only refused to allow .
any, morn continuances, , but expressed
tn ycryxcati'tic htngusge his opinion of
the way tn which the matter bad been
conducted by the prosecutor.
'The Kealoha cases were called on
Wednesday morning, when Heen made
bis first request for a continuance.
Claudius was courtesy personified.
as Mr. Heen is now appearing In
the pine of otlr 'friend, the late la
mented Mr. Brcckons, we are willing,
that 'the cases be continued until to
morrow,", he-said. This was don.
Whcn th cases were called the' fob
yowing morning, Mc Bride moved that
tne wnoie ranch tie dismissed on ac
connt of want of prosecution. :
Heen again fought for a continuance.
He stsnd that he had sot bad. time to
prepare since tho attorney general had
askedvhlm to take charge of the case '
a few days ago. , V-1 - , ' :t"'
"These casea have already been eon-- '
tinned time and time again," said Mc
Urid. "We have allowed thi many
time now, and have shown every court- -ery,
but this is getting too much."i,
"I th'r sny information which you
need fr6m Mrv Brockonsl" asked 'th
eourt., ,;. . , .. ..
"Ye," answered Heen. f'H has all
the psjwrs and also important memo
randa and data concerning them.'.' ,
"It seema ti)-me that the people
should uuderslnnd, when - they asked .'
you to handle the eases, that you would
need that information. I don't see
why the defendant should b prejudiced r
by nuch actions." , ..
"Well, if the cases are dismissed tho
blame should be placed on them," said '
Hoen. "Wo cannot bo held respon
sible, certainly."- ' . t , . '
Jl'yo, .that is true," admitted He-'
Brido. ' 4 These rases wer started six
wecka ago, and I can say without fear
6f contradiction, now or later on, that
there is no good faith in these eases. '
Aa a matter of fact, Brockon told mo
himself thst be (brought tbse-cam-'
only rfor the "purpose f funrisUng a
basis for the mandamus cases. If the
attorney general wanted Heen to prose
cut e he should have given him tho
papers. - Heen is not to blame; he is
tne legatee of a lot of bum casoj."
A continuance of half an hour was
allowed in order that Heen might as
certain Whether that meshing 'a mail

Honolulu. , It brought a lettot t torn the
attorney general, but there was o an

Heen. "I can't do anything else an--iter

"We object to any 'bjore , contiuu
