LOUCK'S APPUL 10
II HE SUPREME COURT
Is Ably Presented by-Attorneys
AH EARLY DECISION IS PROMISED
LOBSIX ANDREWS APPEARS
ON BEHALF OF BOARD OF
Gear's Strong; Presentation of the
'Bight of in American Citizen
to Vote at Hawaii's
The appeal of Frank H. Loucks from
the decision of the board of registra
Hob for the Island of Oahu to the su
preme coart has aroused a good deal
of atleatfon throughout the city and
is being freely discussed by all inter
acted la the political situation. The
appeal waa argued before the supreme
oemrt yesterday morning, every mem
ber of that body being on the bench
Davis & Gear appeared for Loucks and
Lorrtn A. Andrews, chairman of the
board of registration, for the appellee.
Mr. Gear opened the argument for the
appellant, presenting a strong brief
in smroort of his contention that
Loucks was entitled to be registered.
"The plaintiff contends that under
soetkm 1SSB of the Revised Statutes of
the United States providing that:
'Every male citizen above the age of 21.
ineluding persons who have legally declared
their Intention to become
In any Territory hereafter organized,
and who are actual residents of
Buh Torritory at the time of the or
ganizstion thereof, shall be entitled to
vote at the first election in such Territory.
All persons who -were
male citizens above the age of 21 who
were actual residents of the Territory
of Hawaii on the 14th day of June.
1900, are entitled to vote at the election
to be hold in November of this year.
Section 1S91 of thho Reyised Statutes
is iu the same chapter as section 1S53,
and the chapter is entitled. 'Provisions
Common to All the Territories.'
Soction 1S91 provides that all the laws
of the Uultod States which are not
looally applicable shall have the same
force and offect within all the organized
territories and In every
horeafter to be organized, as elsewhere
within tho United States. Section 1S53
by express words gives every citizen
rosidont In the Territory of Hawaii on
the 14th day of June, 1900, tho right to
voto at the first election iu such territory.
"On Juue 14, 1900, the Republic of
Hawaii and tho Islands known as the
Hawaiian Islands became the Territory
of Hawaii. Congress has, all through
the act. roeogulzed the distinction
tho Republic of Hawaii and the
Hawaiian Islands on the one
baud and the Territory of Hawaii
om the other, and in section 4
provides that 'All citizens of the United
States resident In the Hawaiian Islands
who wore residents there on or since
August J2, 1S9S, and all citizens of the
Ignited Suites who shall hereafter reside
in the Territory of Hawaii for one
year shall bo citizens of the Territory
of Hawaii,' this
the citizens resident in the Republic
of Hawaii and the Hawaian Islands
prior to June 14. 1900, and those who
should hereafter reside in the Territory
of Hawaii for one year. The provision
In regard to residence occurs In
four or five othor places in the Territorial
Act. and by reference thereto
will show plainly that a resident of the
Hawaiian Islands and the Republic of
Hawaii Is not necessarily a resident
of the Territory of Hawaii, and that
the provision in section 60 of the act,
that in order to be qualified to vote the
cltlzon must 'havo resided In the territory
not less than one year preceding
the timo at which he offers to register
only applies to one who has resided
In tho Territory of Hawaii one year
after the 14th of June, 1900.
"Reference to section 100 of tho act
is very important, for it there provides-
'That FOR THE PURPOSE OF
NATURALIZATION under the laws of
the United States, RESIDENCE IN
THE HAWAIIAN .ISLANDS prior to
tho tnkinc effect of this act SHALL
BE DEEMED EQUIVALENT TO RESIDENCE
IN THE United States and
in the TERRITORY OF HAWAII.
There is absolutetly no provision in
tho act that residence in the Hawaiian
Islands for the purpose of VOTING,
prior to the taking effect of this act,
shall be doomed equivalent to residence
In the Territory of Hawaii, and without
such a declaration it appears to
us that it Is absolutely necessary for a
person to come within tho meaning of
section SO of the act to have resided
in the Territory one year after June
"The court's attention is also called
to soction 31 regarding qualifications
of senators. It is there provided that
they 'must have resided in the HAWAIIAN
ISLANDS not less than threo
years.' In section 40, as to qualification
of representatives, it Is there provided
that they must 'have resided in
the HAWAIIAN ISLANDS not less
than three years. Congress evidently
saw that a provision to the effect
that senators and representatives must
have resided in the Territory of Hawaii
for not lees than three years
would have disqualified any oae from
Oiolding the office until after
THE HONOLULU REPUBLICAN.

CO, for there the voter 'must hare i- '

Hawaiian Islands, .they would have so
f stated in section CO. as they did in
other sections; but congress well knew
that section 1S59 of the Revised Statutes
provided for a first election in
every territory hereafter organized.
and at the first election in such '
territory all those citizens who are
resident in the territory at the time
it was organized were entitled to vote.
"It seems to us plain that congress,
having passed a law applicable to all
the territories for the first election
therein, there must be something in
the Territorial Act which expressly or
impliedly refers to the FIRST election
in this territory and provides that such
FIRST election shall not be held as
prescribed by the statutes of the United
States, in order to render such
"The provision, however, In the
Territorial Act that a person to vote
'must have resided in the territory not
less than one year,' shows beyond
doubt that congrsa knew that section
1S59 would apply a3 to the first election,
and any other contention would
lead to an absurdity, for congress has
expressly provided for a first election
on Tuesday after the first Monday In
November, 1900; and they must have
known, as reasonable men, that If they
had Intended section 60 to apply to the
first election that there could be NO
ELECTION In 19W, for the Republic
of Hawaii having been organized as a
territory on the 14th of June, 1900.
there could be no one who, in November,
1900. could have resided IN THE
TERRITORY not less, that one year
preceding that election.
"The residents of this territory aun
of territories hereafter to be organized
are given n right to vote under the
statutes of the United States. This
right Is a valuable right and cannct
be taken away unless it clearly appears
that the power taat granted that right
has taken It away. We submit that
no one can under this law, especially
under section 60, if this apply to the
first election, bo LEGALLY QUALIFIED
to vote in such 'election because
he could not have resided in the territory
ono year preceding such election.
And we therefore rely upon the only
law left applicable to such election,
soction 1S59 of the Revised Statutes of
ths United States."
In replying, Lorrln Andrews con
tended that It was absurd to claim thatJ
congress would pass entirely different
laws for the first and second elections
In a territory. It was clearly appar
ent, he declared, that congress intended
section 1S59 to apply to territories
which had no election boards, excepting
that subsequent legislatures would
pass laws dealing with the qualifications
of voters. In the rresent instance
such provisions had already
been made by our own law, the Territorial
Mr. Andrews said that the other side
were raising a mere technicality of
words and that there could not be mv
doubt of the purport of Hawaii's laws.
Section 104 provided that the laws of
the Territorial Act should go into operation
forty-five days after their approval,
and It was therefore evident
that the Hawaiian laws covered th's
point now and section 1S59 of the Revised
Statutes could not bo in operation
at the same timo.
Mr. Davis made a brief argument in
support of the appeal, contending that
if there had been any intention to repeal
section 1S59 of the Revised Statutes
the words in section 5 of the Organic
Act would have been so -worded
as to require tho voter to have resided
ono year in the "Hawaiian Islands" Instead
of the "Territory of Hawaii."
Tho case was taken under advisement

ACCOMPLISHED A WONDERFUL FEAT

AND TEN HUNLBED
Captain Partello of the Fifth. Infantry
and His Record for
line Long-Bangs Shooting
In this age when every man may be
compelled to go to war at a moment's
notice, it is well to know how to shoot.
Accurate marksmanship Is an exact
science and you have to learn how to
shoot, just the same as you learn to do
anything else easily and well by patience,
perseverance and practice.
And what man more competent to
teach you than Captain J. M. T. Partello,
Fifth infantry, U. S. A., champion
long-distance rifle-shot of the
world for these many years, and now
with his regiment on tho Thomas eu
route to China?
He is the only man who was ever
commissioned In the army solely for
his ability to shoot, and this was when
President Hayes abrogated the necessity
for a West Point cadetshlp, made
him a lieutenant and at General Miles'
request sent him to serve under th.it
gallant officer in the great campaign
of the northwest against Sitting Bull
and his army of Indian braves.
It was here that his wonderful skill
proved its worth. General Miles had
trapped Sitting Bull in a village on the
Poplar river near the border line of
Montana. A thick layer of snow covered
the ground and the thermometer
was away below zero. Fight was in
tho air and it was a very anxious
sunrise for both-sides, when a solitary
Indian was seen escaping to bring reinforcements
to relieve the big Indian
chief. He was running at full speed
nearly a thousand yards away whnn
first seen. General Miles ordered his
favorite rifleman to bring the escaping
messenger at any hazard. Lying
prono on his back In the snow, according
to his easiest manner of long
distance shooting. Lieutenant Parteiio
took calm aiui at the lapidly vanishing
speck away off on the white horizon,
fired and the red warrior dropped in
his tracks. Soon after Sitting Bull
was a prisoner and his fighting dajs
He is the only man who ever was
barred from competing in the great
rifle tournaments in the army, because
he was invincible, and this -was when
General Sheridan promulgated an order
foiever barring him from further no
competition, as he had become so pro
ficient with the rifle that he swept
ee:y thing before him.
Ho is tho man who broke the world's by
record of 1ST points for long distance
shooting, then held by Fulton, the very
first time he ever fired a rifle, when he
brought the score up to 209 points and
jumped to fame in a single

competition held In England for riflemen
from all over the world, the com
petition called for fifteen straight bulls-eyes
at S00, fifteen at 900 and fifteen at
1,000 yards, a feat hitherto regarded
impossible. Captain Partello maJe
the score with ease and grace and won
the world's championship for all time.
He is a man who has seen ocr
twenty years of hard service in the
army and whom the American government
sent abroad to select a new weapon
for Uncle Sam's soldiers when the
deadly effect of modern rifles newiy
adopted by European armies began to
attract attention, and It was on his recommendation
that the Krag-Jorgensen
was finally decided upon, apropos of
which here is a good story that is toll
about the way his remarkable skill astonished
the soldiers in Copenhagen
when the new rifles were being tested:
The soldiers were shooting over a
long range at moving dummies representing
an army. For purposes of accurate
aim they were using Wooden
rests, which were adjusted tp suit the
height of each man.
Though every man knew of the fame
Captain Partello's prowess, there
was not one who had ever seen him,
consequently there was a look of blank
amazement on every face when he
stepped forward and, shooting offhand,
began to pick out the eyes and
nose and mouth of the moving figures

revelation. The science as he practiced in
it was absolutely new to theta.

business are such that all of the funis
are apt to get away from there in time,
and the treasury department Is figuring
upon a new plan.
For instance, the United States government
collects in revenues about
$50,000 a month in Hawaii. The law
requires that all of this shall be paid In
gold, and it also requires that the gold
shipped to tho United States sub-treasury
at San Francisco. This one
thing alone, therefore, takes 550,000 of
clean money out; of Hawaii eVerr
month, and there is no way under the
existing order of things of getting that
money back into the Islands.
But there is another very large drain
upon the finances of Hawaii. The chief
product of the Islands is sugar. When
this is purchased it is usually paid for
drafts on the mainland, so this puts
actual money Into Hawaii.
The banks and business houses of
Hawaii, In order to keep up their
money stocks, are required to ship gold

costs about one-half of 1 per cent for
transportation and Insurance, in addition
to the loss of Interest Involved

The merchants at Honolulu have
been trying to get permission from
the government to pay their customs

accommodate them, have been un
able to do so, since the law requires
payment of duties to be made only in
gold, silver, greenbacks or gold or
silver certificates. A solution of the
trouble seems, however, to have been
reached by the treasury officials here.
They have decided that Hawaiian importers
may deposit gold or other lawful
money with The sub-treasurer at
San Francisco, who will give his receipt
Those receipts can then be paid in to
the collector of customs at Honolulu,
who will accept them as cash. All the
mercantile houses of Hawaii have
accounts with San Francisco banks,

In this way the flow of gold from the
islands and the cost of shipping it bark

As at most other Pacific points, gold
