i Story of Human Blavoxy.
"The story told in police court
by Mino Choktti and Mashinu
'finki two Japanese womeu, does not answer
these Questions, but it establishes
the existence in Honolulu of the worst
tort of human slavery that ever flourished
Mashino Saki, a little, not unattractive
Japanese woman, being without other
means of support, went into the employ
of Yokoyama at Palania as cook. She
told on the witness stand how she was
transformed from a domestic to a wanton
under tutelage of Yokoyama nnd how
when her earnings were less than her
slaver-driver lord thought they should
' be, he was bcateu and kicked until she
'finally fled in the night for fear of her'
life. In- her flight from the
!x?ater she was accompanied by -Mino
Chokai, who was similarly enslaved. I at
their last quarrel with Yokoyama he told
them that they were in debt to him $350.
lie said he had bought furniture for his
house and that they owed htm on that account.
They went into the street practically
naked nnd without a icnny.
At King street, near the bridge, they
were found, weeping, by Endo. They, told
him they were immoral women and penniless.
He took them to a' spare room
in his house. Next morning he loaned
them ?-!5?0, of which f350 was la? pay
the debt claimed by Yokoyama and the
balance to be used in procuring clothing.
Money Paid to Their Master.

Endo testified that the money given

because they were Japs and needy.

their receipts and disbursement with
fidelity. The disbursements
were always nearly equal to .the receipts

liad loaned him this money for
purposes, but did not throw
any light' on the way Takahasha viewed
this radical diversion of funds. He' is
evidently in on the deal and perfectly
his money, should be expend

The two nMavcd Japanese women, m
they gave their testimony yesterday in

of human life as It Is lived by some women

asked to explain their "peculiar relations
to their inhuman masters one said: "I
am a woman and do not understand how
such things are. I know that Yokoyama
had a claim on me and I believed if I did
not pay it he woubl kill me."
Thus these poor creatures are bandied
about from one brutal woman-beating
master to another, each in turn demanding
his blood money, which is counted
out as so many heart beats per day in
the government charnel' house at Iwilei.

Take Down That Ugly
Iron Fence, Around
SI SAY HUULN BUSINESS EK
VIEWS OP A HUXBER
A3 XXPBSSSED TO
They Agree With The Kepublicn
That the Grounds Belong to
the People and Should
What ought to be done with that ugly
iron fence around the capital grounds?
Ought it to be torn down and the ground
thrown open to the poople who own them
or kept as private- grounds for the solo
benefit of public officials?
This is the question that has been pro-pounded
by The Republican. This paper
believes the grounds bhould be thrown
open just as any other public park or
grounds, and it has alwavs believed that
the majority of the business and thinking
men of the city took the same view. It
now knows they do. Herewith is ghen
the opinions of a number of business ir.eii
as gathered by Republican reporters
They tell their own story :
B. F. Boyden, manager of L. B. Kerr
& Co.. Lul "I 'think the capitol
grounds should be open at all times. The
public has a right to enter the beautiful,
capitol park, and to keep it under lock
and key is an imposition. The days of
feudal customs are post; closing the
moat and raising the drawbridge is out
of date and should not be perpetuated in
Honolulu. The evening is the most
pleasant hour of the day, and at snch a
time the residents of Hie city should not
lie barred from the lovely capftol lawn.
By -all means, open the gates."
E. A. Mclncrny "I would like to see
the iron feneo removed, but th stone' j
parapet should be allowed ra remain.
There is no reason whatever for the
gates being- locked. I should like, also
to bee a gateway at the corner of King '
and Richard streets, with a walk leading-to
the entrance of the capitol. It is a
hardship for business men to walk all the
way round to the present entrance, which
is entirely for carriages. It is a .mere'
driveway, without any walk for footmen.
A walk from the corner would not :n
any way mar the grounds and would
furnish a direct entrance for people having
business ut the -capitol."
I. Livingstone, of The ICash store
"As far as I am iersonally concerned, I
would say that the capitol grounds
should be opened evenings for the people.
It is a well known fact that we have
none too much park space, and in all
tropical countries parks are very-
sential to the comfort of the people. If
I were managing it I would tear dowa
the entire stone wail and iron fence and
make the grounds easily accessible from,
all sides. The grounds belong to the
people and there is no reason for denying
them full possession."
J. W. Berestrom, dealer in. musical
Instruments, said: "If the police wxuid
look after it and not permit hoodlums
to monopolize the grounds I think it
would be a good idea to open the gotofl
Sf. night. The grounds should be lighted
and aa often as possible too band
should be secured to furnish music
to the crowds. The present opportunities
for the people to pass a pleacant
evening down town are very restricted
and there is no reason -why they should
not have possession of their own."
A. Coyne of the Coyne Furniture
Co. said: "I have often wondered why
the gates to the capitol grounds aro
iccked at night and believe It "tvould
be a good thing for the peoplo if thoy
had access to the oapitol premises."
H. II. McKechnie, contracting painter
Tear down the fence, by all means.
The ;eo;i!e need the park room around
the capitol building for recreation
grounds. A large number of the evening
couterts given by the band ought
to be held in the capitol grounds and
could be if the eople would demand
their rights. I have been in the capital
city of nearly every state and territrr.r
in the union, and there is not mother
one outside of Hawaii, where the
grounds are fenced in. The locking of
the gates at night, a though the capitol
grounds were some sacred spot, is siniuly
ridiculous. Throw them open. I say."
E. "W. Jordan I would like to see a,
gate on the corner of Richards JindKiny.
I know how difficult it is to please everybody.
Personally, 1 don't like any fence1
around public buildings or ground.
G. M. Whitney of Whitney & Harsh-Fences

lr a stone wall and iron fence. .Being already
there, it is doubtful it it 'would be
wise to throw away the valuable material
contained therein, but if it was not'

H HfSIGNS FROM
III ICE FORCE
Senior Captain -Refuses
to Serve With Hanrahan.
TELLS WHY HE LEFT TIE FORCE
MJFTJSED TO BE INSULTED
FURTHER BY THE HIGH
Final Trouble Arose- Last Night
Over Hanrahan Ordering the
Arrest of a Sober Kan
Story in Detail.
Senior Captain Robert Parker of the
police department gave his-resignation to
High Shrift" Brown hast night. He will
not report for duty this morning. Tomorrow
he will turn over the keys and insignia
of office to his official superiors,
and step out, severing his connection
with the department in' which he has
faithfully labored for the past nine years.
This action on the part of Captain
Parker Is sudden, but not altogether
by those familiar .with the inside
workings at police headquarters.
lie was insulted last night by Officer
Hanrahan. The insult was followed by
rapid developments. Hanrahan was
thrust bodily out of headquarters and
into the street by the unassisted efforts
of the sinewy captain. He was seized by
the nape of the neck and the scat of the
pants and given a swift rush which took
him beyond the confines pf the righteously
indignant captain's jurisdiction. This
action on the part of Captain Parker was
liis answer to a sneering remark of
"I'd like to sec you put me out.''
Threatened to Lock Hanrahan Up.
After he was thoroughly and complete
ly on the outside of the station he heanl
the captain's voice, which in a revolution
suppressing tone, said: "Now, Hanrahan,
if you come back in here I will have
yon locked In a cell." Manuel Espina
was" stationed at the door and told by the '
captain that under no circumstances
fchould he allow H.innumn to enter the
Lbulidifisr until such time as High Shenttj
Brown or. his deputy, Chilliugworth,
In a few moments High Sheriff Brown

while on the outside then entered the
building nnd called Captain I'arker 'o
the window of the deputy sheriff's offio.
He told the captain that Hanranhan had
ieen carrying out secret orders.
Optain Parker said 1 "I know noth
ing, of Hunraban's secret orders", but I
cannot le spat on by n common officer.
Hanrahan or. myself must quit
I will not work with such n
Tha high sheriff made no reply and the
captain departed for hi3 home.
Captain Parker Talks.
The story leading up to the resignation
of Captain Parker is told best in his own
'John Thomas, a patrolman, was called
"IT his regular beat by Ilnnrahan tonight
and asked to accompany him to the Me.-chants
Exchange saloon. When he entered
Hanranhan pointed to a man known
ns 'Scotty,' who was taking a glass of
beer wth three or four friends, and said,
'Arrest that inav' without saying why
or what for. The man wjs arrested,
brought to the station, searched and
locked up. 1 came in nud looked the
Jow over and in my judgment he was not
ii uiih. euuusK 10 juaiiiy loc&in mm up.
"I went at onco np the street and
fonnd Thomas and asked him who ordered
him to arrest a man that was not drunk.
He said, 'Hanrahan I then and tho
ordered Thomas never again to arrest a
man n Hanmlinn's order unless he
merely called for assistance.
."I -then .went back to the station to
wait until the high sheriff came to bee
him about the matter.
"Hanrahan came in while I 'was waiting
'and saiL 'Obtain Parker. I don't
want you to interfere with me in my
duty, and clenched his fists threaten
"I raid. 'Hanrahan I do not want you
to interfere with me. I have charge of
this buildiag and if necessary I will have
you put out.
" 'I'd like to see you put me out." retorted
Bat He Did Pat Him Out.
"I at once stepped up, turned
face to the door, caught him by
the neck and the seat of his pants and
tossed him into the street. After he wxs
outside I told him if he came inside again
I would hare him locked np In a celL I
then waited for th comTnr of the high
sheriff. He soon arrived and had a talk
with Hanrahan on the outside and lis
tened to his story. Brown then caine in
sad called me up to the deputy sheriff's
office, ne said lie bad given Hanrahan
.private orders to do as he had done. I
told. Brown" that I ."snow nothing of his
private, orders, but that I did not want
to be spat upon"" by a common police officer.
1 told him if he wanted me to
stay on the force he must let Hanrahan
go and that I would not work- with such
a man. I told him that one or the otbjr"
of us must go. Brown did not say a
word. I will sot report for duty tomor
row and nest day I will turn over my
keys and such, things to Brown.
"I have teoaroca. respect for my family

he had the manhood to- tell the truth on
the witness stand before Judge Wilcox.
Hanrahan- had arretted a sober man on
the charge of drunkenness. McCague
under oath said theman was cot drunk.
The prisoner was -discharged and Mc-Cague
was Sretl by the high sheriff. I
do not know why I was not fired at the
saate tiaie. Rut that does not matter.
1 wfil stam? in' the i reels before I go
back on the police department with Hanrahan.
"I have held a diep dislike for that
fellow from the start. I dhdike him because
the first thing he did after getting
a position on the police force was to get
mis.! up with a woman. He had arrested
her and brought her to the station an
the charge of tbe very crime he had induced
her to commit and to which he
was a party.
Yes. 111 starve before I will work
alongside a man like that.?
Denied by High Sheriff.
High Sheriff Brown, when seen by a
Republican reporter shortly after Captain
I'arker went home, said that there had
b.'en no unusual occurrence. He said
Hanrahan had not been put out of the
station by Captain - Parker and that the
captain had not quit.
The reporter could not find Hanrahan.
According to the story of S. I. Shaw,
proprietor of the Merchants' Exchange
saloon, and S. Ilachmann. a cement man,
who was present, five men, four of whom
were soldiers, walked up to the bar and
each ordered a glasn of beer. One of the
number called "Scotty" jiaid for the
drinks by handing the bartender 75 cents.
The drinks beinc two for a quarter, there
was the price of one drink coming to
Scotty as change,, and the bartender
handed him a beer check, which he accepted.
At this juncture Hanrahan, who
was standing very near, in a loud voiee
asked the bartender why he sold the beer
to men who were drunk and, taking their
money, gave a beer check as change.
'The men are perfectly sober." retorted
the bartender. This statement was emphatically
corroborated by Rachmann.
But Hanrahan went outside and returned
with Police OlHeer Thomas, directing .the
latter to take Scotty to the station for
drunkenness. Thomas said the man was
not drunk, but obeyed the order.
Hanrahan n Beer Taster:
Then Hanrahan capped the climax by
taking. up Scotty's beer glass and taking
a drink from it as if to ascertain if it was
drugged. He turned and went to the
door, and. wheeling back, took a drink
from each of the "four other glasses,

"You are. after cheap 'booze,'" said the
man behind the fir In n rage.
ban paid little heed, but walked out.
The. men were taken so by surprise
that they stood viewing the scene for
some minutes. They realized that an investigation
might follow and three of
them wrote down their names, leaving

needed. The three men arc Charles Tre-bile.

Parker's Splendid Record.
Captain Parker has lieen on the
of Honolulu for nine years. In
that time he has made a record of bravery
and faithfulness that has few. equals-His
rare service in critical times has
been recognized by the Honolulu public
in a substantial and lasting manner. Captain
Parker's record as a guardian of the
peace, as a protector of the lives and
property of the jeople of Honolulu is a
monument that will endure long after
the high sheriff and his favorite, Hanrahan.

A mob of revolutionists were attacking
the capitol. It was the first revolution.
Who was defending it? Robert

WASHINGTON. CvU 12L There is a

a naval station for the uavy of the tatted
States. It appear from advic that

very high price for the land and that the
United States government will nor pay
this price, preferring to abandon the
The Republican correspondsat has
asked the uavy department to tall exactly
how the Pearl Harbor
matter stands at this date, ami hera i
the story that he got iu response to that
At the last session of congress thsre
was presented to both the senate and the
house an extensive report on the I'siL'l
Harbor scheme. The report was ,the
work of a board of naval experts that bad
been investigating the matter. It whs
accompanied by charts and a full description
of the work that ought to be dear.
both on the land and In the bottom of the
harbor. The report was accomp&niei
by a bill which had been drafted, by the
navy department. This bill provided
for dredging the channel lato the harbor,
for the construction of a naval bate,
for the purchase of land along the water
front and for doing a number of other
things that need to be done.
Smothered In Conprcaj.,
When the report and bill rautbed -ton- -gross
it was referred to the romrrfft&s;
on naval affairs hi the renatc and the
"j course was followed in the htme.
That is the last that ever was hcapl
itLout it. Tbe senate and hoe iav
n'ttecs simply ignored the bill; but they
lid put Into the regular naval appro nation
bill for the current year an appropriation
of $100,000 for dredging the
channel into Pearl Harbor, nnd let tntags
go at that.
The navy department then found Itself
high and dry regarding the general Pearl
narbor proposition and it net about looking
into the matter to sec what couM fee
Jone. It found, in the first place, that
tbe $100,000 which congress allowed It
for dredging the channel into the harbor
was about one-fifth enough to do the
work proi)erIy. It had no money to
buy land or to build" a naval station. The
question, then, was whether the
had better go ahead and spend the
money really appropriated on dred?
ing work. A start could be made with
that, anyway. The question wr.q
and It was decided not to hegin
dredging at all until the money for
the entire work was in kiad.
The reason for this decision is Dot far to
cek. As matters stand now, Penrl Har-Vr
is an unimproved piece of propvrtv.
If the navy department were to start
work in dredging the harbor it would at
once become partly improved property
and the real estate In that vicinity womtd
increase in price accordingly.
Awaiting an Appropriation.
So it is nil in the air, and nothing
will be done until congress paw3 a proper
bill, making appropriation for the entire
work. If. after that has been done,
the laud owners along the shores of the
harbor get their notions of the price ef
lend too high, condemnation
be started. Whvn the Cnited States
government wants land for the pafelic
rervite and tbe owner of the land pKces
a very high price upon it. the Uaitedjp
States government takes the land anywag.
through the courts and allows c junr to
iiny what a fair valuation of it is. Then
the government pays the price fixed by
the jury. Thit is the law of Hawaii as
well as the law of the United States.
So it appears, from the navy department's
version of the matter, that IVarl
Harbor Is going to be improved when
congress makes the appropriation,
will be at the session opening in
and that the price set upon the land
around there will have nothing to do
with the case. E. S. L. '
