MESfliT THAT OHO
ill Nti UNDEB OLD COiT METHODS.
Ought the'old court methods chaage?
That Is a. questloa tavbe by. the fects; the records.
What is asd has been the record of the calendar until Judge Humphreys
took his seat? , . '
Take for instance the case of Mary C. Aldrich against Priscilla E.
Hassinger. This is a case that originated iclsSL. It -was so ancient
that eren the records vrere st aside and Its starting point "sras a mere
surmise, save, in the memory of the venerable clerk of the court.
Originally the case of Mary C Aldrich against W. James
Smith. It iras instituted on November 10. 1S91, by injunction" proceedings
signed by Sanford B. Dole as justice of the Supreme.Court.
It-seems thab by wiir the original defendant "conveyed all right,
title and interest in and to that certain piec or parcel of ground situate
in Honolulu, Island of Oahu, on Beretanla avenue, "as recorded
on September 12, 1SCS. on pages 22T and 22S," the "same to be at
aU times available for a homestead or place of dwelling for any and
aU of my blood relations of or within the second degree of
The instrument went on further
of consanquinity of blood should rule.
This case went over, by one action of delay unto another, remaining
on the calendar and undecided until a few weeks ago. " 'Meantime
the estate was improving in value and the excuses for delays seemed
to increase with the relative increase in value.
Thurston & Frear appeared for the defendant and originally C. W.
Ashford for the plaintiffs. With the death of Smith the title of the
suit was changed. It was in court nine years and would probably still
be there but for the energy and push of Judge Humphreys.
This is a sample case of the tedious and inexcusable delays that
have characterized the proceedings in the local courts. And yet it has
been said recently "the same cordial relations do not exist Between the
court and bar as formerly." Perhaps not.
THE LINCOLN BLOCK.
Suit Has Been Brought
to Q,uiet Title to
IN NATURE OF AN ACCOUNTING.
GROUNDS ON" WHICH S. C. ALLEN
IS MADE DEFENDANT
HT E. Mclntyre Claims Eight to
the Block by Means of a Bill

H. E. Mclntyre has .brought suit
against S. C Allen for an accounting.
Plaintiff sets forth in his bill that on
or about the 11th day of November
18S7, George W. Lincoln executed and
delivered to defendant a certaiu document
purporting to be an absolute uill
of sale from Lincoln to defendant of
a certain two-story brick building
and leasehold premises situate on tue
mauka side of King street, between
Fort and Alakea streets, adjoining on
the Waikiki side the Mclntyre premises,
but which document-was in fai:t
only executed and delivered lor the
purpose of securing to the defendant
the payment of a certain sum or money
then due from said Lincoln to defendant.
That defendant entered into an
agreement with Lincoln, wherein
agreed to, and with said Lie-coin,
that after full payment of nil
moneys and interest due Allen from
Lincoln defendant would refund to
Lincoln all moneys collected from said
brick building and premise over ana
above said indebtedness, with interest,
and also to cancel the document referred
to, making the same null and
That on the 11th of November, 1SS7,
defendant took possession of the building
and has ever since continued in
possession In receipf"of the rents and
profits of the building.
That plaintiff Is informed and believes
the fact to be that the said Lincoln
has long since well paid to defendant
whatever sum or money was
due to defendant
That under and by" virtue of a certain
document, dated July 23, 191)0, Lincoln,
for the sum of fl, sold, transferred
and assigned to plaintiff all his
right, tiUe and Interest in and to the
said building and premises.
That plaintiff has requested defendant
to render an account, showing
the total amount of the indebtedness,
the amount paid by Lincoln to defendant
and the amount of rent collected
from said building, and showing th&
balance, if any, due to the plaintiff, but
defendant has failed and refused unl
still fails and refuses to render ?aid
; That plaintiff is ready, willing and
I offers to pay to defendant any balance
that may be found due him Under 4aii
agreement after such accounting.
That said account is of a complicated
character, extending over a period
of years, and that the facts concerning
the same are exclusively within the
knowledge of defendant
Wherefore plaintiff prays:
That an account may be taken of
what is due to defendant for principal
and interest on said mortgage purporting
to be a bill of sale, together with
the rents and profits of said building,
which have been received by the defendant
That it may be decreed that upon the
plaintiff paying to the defendant the
aum, if any, which, shall be found due,
the plaintiff shall be gtren possession
of. said building.

Shimada Tried to Run Things at
w, Iwelei and Was Jailed.
Shimada, a half-witted Japanese,
took a terrible responsibility oil his
shoulders the other night at Iwilel. He
rigged himself up to look as much like
a police officer as possible and started
io run uthings. He had a bottle of
gin hung from his belt, from which
he took HberaL swigs now and again.
"The more he drank the mora he fell
like Policeman Hanrahan. Coins up
to Officer Spencer he stated that he
thought he could run things at Iwilei.
and so the regular custodian of the
peace was invited to vacate. When-he
demurred, Shimada attempted to put
him outside the fence. Instead of
persuasion he started to use force,
with the result that he was
to the police station. He was up bo
fore Judge Wilcox yesterday and was
fined $25 and costs for his fun.
Last Sunday was a great day for
"jags." Nearly all of the 'cases cf
drunks in the polfce court yesterday
were persons arrested for being drunk
on Sunday. They were all fined the
usual $2 and costs.
