to restrain by injunction the defendant
corporation from charging rates ; for

than the board provided in its order.
Investigation Was General , ( '
General investigation of the affairs
of the Inter-Island .company by the
utilities commission grew out of cer
tain siecffle complaints that were1 filed
from Maui. The scope at once 'became
general instead of going merely into
the special eomplaints. llere there
arose at once a controversy as to wheth
er or not the commission had power 'to
investigate what the company termed
its non-utility business and which the
commission claimed was so closely in
terwoven with the utility business as to
be inseparable aud to lave arisen di
rectly out of And to have been financed
by the utility end Of the business. '
Company Indicates Position -
As the investigation went along It
became - more and more evident that
while the roiiypany was submitting -to
tan investigation it would, when the
time came to consider any ruling that
might be mudo, either refuse to recog
nise the commission 's right to dictate
or ignore the authority which the com
mission claimed and set up the coun
ter claim that jurisdiction over the
transportation company was in the
Now TJp to Court
The lengthy report of the commis
sion was handed down a few weeks'
since and the company ordered to re
turn to its 1915 rates. Instead, a sec
ond schedule, higher than the one tin
commission had considered, went irito
effect at the time the company had set
for it. This brought it to the utilities
board to make the next move. Its au
thority appeared to be ignored; at
least its orders were not obeyed. To
enforce the powers aud jurisdiction
which it claims under the laws of the
Territory of Hawaii the board must
act. The procedure for action was
through the courts. This move has
been made in the commencement of
the legal action. It is now the move
of the iutiir island Company through
its counsel. What that move will be
remains tu be seen but the logical In
ference seems to be that it will tak
the form of answer in the legul form
which will deny jurisdiction of the
. utilities board . aud squarely frame
Report As Evidence
It Is possible thut the lengthy testi
mony taken before the commission may
Dually yet before the court but the ex
pectation is that such will not be the
case until the primary dispute, juris
diction or lack of jurisdiction, is de
termined. If it be found the utilities
board has the jurisdiction it claims,
then the "matter of the right and jus
tice of its orders might euter into the
case, but not befora.
If,, however, it be held that the
shipping board has jurisdiction in the
matter, aud not the ntilities commis
sion, the iiavigntiou company has to
reckon with an absolutely unknown
quantity, but one that has expressed
the .Intention of giving to the public
rates for freight and pitsseuger. service
that it shall deem withiu reason and
insist that nothing beyond a fair profit
shall .be exacted. .'.

BARON LE GAY LOSES
Baron Jtt,l Xe 0 ay, who sued the
Itapid kTranslt Company -for damages
growing out of a fall from a car at
l'awaa Junction about four years ago,
lost hia case in Judge Kemp 's court yes
terday, when the jury which heard the
case returned a verdict in favor of the
traction company after being out half
an hour. ;
The plaintiff was iiot in court during
the, trial of the ease, nor. has he been
(n Hawaii much sinoe after the incident
on Which he, laid , the foundation for
his damage suit. '
attached copies of correspondence from
ine eommaniiing otlicer or Fort Arm
strong, whose gunners on more than'
one occasion have found It necessary
te fire shots across the bow of steam
ers Of the lo-al fleets, to convince them
that war orders are absolute aud not
te fce tamtiered with.
''"'National safety " is the phrase
nsed by the army officers In referring
to the situation and which they require
shall be observed here as strictly as
at Other ports.
A iliUmber of memos addressed "" by
Captain L. B. Mngrudcr of Fort Arm
strong to Colonel Wheeler of the Coast
Artillery Corps showed that there are
not "only frequent, but repeated viola
tions of the regulation, including Jap
anese fishing sampans, power launches,
'Small -steamers and schooners.
f The first memo dealt with three
sampans attempting to enter the har
bor' before snurise. Then the Inter-Island
steamship Kilnuea passed No. five
buoy twenty -minute before sunrise mi
one ocension and the Maun Kea of the
same fleet was another . violator not
long afterword, and shots were fired
across the bows of the Claudine, com
pelling the vessel to turn back and
wart outside. Then another. vessel went
out' at night and its identity could not
be" established until afterwards, this
being the J. A. Cummins. .....
It was suggested that repeated at
tempts of some' vessels to enter the
harbor were due Jo ignorance .of the
regulation and the importance thereof,
and the army department suggested
that the hoard of harbor commissioners
make the widest possible effort to give
publicity to the requirements ns a war
measure. The Army department also
suggested that at night three ' red
lights -be placed in such positions that
they can be seen and that these be con
sidered as warning signals. , '
x The army also suggested that on ves
sels which do not show names or num
bers, these should be immediately
placed upon the vessels, large ami
small, of such size, that they can be
readily seen and recorded by the fort
sentries. Requests have been made for
special privileges for vessels to euter
or leave, tout without proper visible
numbers or names cannot be identified.
So far there have been about twenty
violations and it is in these instances
that -Geueral Wisser asked to have the
Territory enter legal proceedings.
' Mr. Wakefield suggested that it
might be well for the board to obtain
information as to when "it is officially
sunset and officially sunrise."

in eustodia legis, according to an opin

bv Chief Justice A- O. M. Rqbertson
of the Hawaiian Supreme Court, in the
flase of F. E. Thompson, against Thomas
Gill, -defendant, and .Jainos Bicknell,
This case was On appeal from an
order made br the district eoart of

The opinion holds that in order to

rights of a judgement creditor under
a valid judgement. The opinion also
