Tate Morning United States Jndce
Bute will deliver his charge to the
Jwy In the ca of the Government
against the Honolulu Plantation Cora
puny, the suit for condemnation of a
leasehold interest la certain lands at
Pearl Harbor required by the United
ataie ior naval purposes.
Closing argument to the jury was
commenced yesterday morning at 10
o'doclrand wa finished shortly' after (
o'clock yesterday afternoon.
Tax Aaeeaeor J. .W. Pratt was the!
last witness for the defense, being
called to show the progressive in
crease of value in the property of the I
United States District Attorney J.
J. Dunne, who had the opening and
Closing argument, commenced by com
menting on the character or the ex
pert testimony of value produced by
Professional Sugar Men. ,
District Attorney Dunne drew nt-j
lention to the fact that the witnesses '
were nearly all professional sugar I
men who steadfastly ignored details.,
They gave what wag known in law
ag a lumping appraisement. LorrIn j
A. Thurston, a plantation promoter J
and the last expert witness, had given !
h estimate of 1239.400. or- $700 per1
acre, for 342 acres of the holding. . ,
Allan Herbert had not wanted to,
testify on values at all and reluctant- j
ly gave an estimate of 154 per acre.
Manager Low. of the Honolulu plan-j
iatlon, deeply interested in the enter-'
prise, swore on the stand that thii
leasehold interest was worth $400,000
to the company, and yet Mr. Low. in
Ws sworn answer to the complaint,'
hail placed the value at $144,945. or J
$80,000, less expenditures on im
provements. .Mr. Dunne said also that Mr. Low
had placed the value of 4720 acres at
?SD.uM) in the tax returns for 1900.
from which the jury intent calculate
fch proportionate valuation of the 561 i
seres in the lease containing the
glands sought to be condemned.
Irrational Valuations. J
"Not only are the expert valuations
Irrational." said Mr. Dunne, "but they
are full of Inconsistencies. Compare
the testimony of Manager Low with
that of Mr. Thurston. While testify-
lag in the Bishop estate case Mr. Low
placed the value of the fee simple
on this property at S500 per acre fori

Mr. Dunne referred to the testimony
of Mr. Low as "that of r madman.'

SAX FRANCISCO, Dec. $. An ef
fort Is to be made to oust from the
Supreme bench of Hawaii Associate
Justice Antonio Perry, who has been
a member of that high court sine? the
United States took possession of the
Hawaiian Islands. George A. Davis, a
leading attorney and former Judge of
the Circuit Court of Hawaii, is now
here on his way to Washington to ask
United States Attorney General Knox
to depose Perry.
The latter will be charged with in
competency generally and specifically
with violating the Constitution of the
United States in the conduct of a
Davis said yesterday: -'Justice
Perry is unfitted for his position on
the Supreme bench by his lack of
training in legal matters, in the first
instance for. as a lawyer, he never
tried a case in his life. His many
blunders during the dying days of the
Dole oligarchy have been severely
censured by the Hawaiian attorneys,
who have openly expressed their opin
ion of his unfitness. And yet. upon
the formation of the Territory, this
same Judge was recommended by
some persons in Honolulu, who evi
dently misled the Department of
Justice in Washington and secured
his appoinntment as Associate Judge.
"One of the most serious-blunders
of Perry's judicial career, and one
which I will make special mention of
to Attorney-General Knox, was his
sitting on appeal in a case of the Ter
ritory of , Hawaii against Osaki, a
Japanese. As a Circuit Judge. Perry,
under a peculiar statute, exercised the
i functions of a grand jury and found
i a true bill against the prisoner for
' murder in the first degree and certi
l tied that there was proper cause to
; trv him. Then, as a Circuit Judge,
he did try him and sentenced him.
"The trial of the prisoner and his
conviction and sentence took place
after the change of sovereignty. He
was put upon trial without being in
dicted by a grand jury, in express vio
i lation of the provisions of the United
I States Constitution. An application
was made on behalf of the prisoner
1 by myself and associate counsel to
Judge Gear of the Circuit Court for a
writ of habeas corpus. Judge Gear is
sued the writ, and the prisoner was
! ordered discharged from custody. Attorney-General

of a statute allowing an appeal on be-

! protest was entered against Justice
Porry hearing this appeal, but he
overruled the protest, and. in express
violation of the provisions of the or
ganic act, heard this appeal and af
firmed the sentence which he had
i himself uttered.
I then made application to Judge;
Estee of the United State District
Court for writ of habeas coi pus. and s
J mice Estee overruled the decision of
Justice Perry, affirmed the judgment
of Judge Gaar. and ordered the pris
oner to be discharged. Now the Attorney-General

An interesting meeting-of the Moth-1
ers' and Teachers' Club took place In
the Punahou School yesterday after
noon and was well attended. Prof. !
U. Thompson, principal of the Ka-!
raahameha School, read a paper on
"Carpentry in the Home." He said,
Professor Thompson on -Carpentry.
"I learned years ago not to give ad
vice. Suggestions are better. They
leave the giver free not to expect re
sults, and they leave the receiver free
to do as he pleases without account
ing to the giver.
"It has not been my fortune to visit
the centers of art and architecture
in Europe. What I hear makes me
believe the masses of the people re
main through life untouched by the
masterpieces, though they touch them
every day of their lives. I know this
is true in America. Though the arch
itecture and art may not be so fine
there as in Europe it is good enough
for the illustration.
"The carpenters and stone-workers
who reproduce the lines suggested,
the cabinet makers and wood carvers j
who reproduce the forms suggested
by the artists remain all their lives I
practically untouched by the beauti
ful lines and proportions they spend
their lives in reproducing.
"What has this to do with carpen
try at home? ell, the training sug'
gested is not given in schools, and
am not sure that such training is pos
sible at the present time, even if the
public demanded it. Why? Because
teachers themselves have not been
trained. There are a few places where
teachers are being properly trained.
Mr. J. Liberty Todd -seems to be do
ing tiie right Kind or worn, uui iorj
the most part the training offered has
in view the providing of the nec-
essaries of life. This is a step in the
right direction, but it is. not all it
Suggestions for Home Work.
"And while waiting for the properly
trained teacher to lead, the mothers
and fathers can do something at
home, and for this work I offer the
following suggestions: First, the in
fluence from publications. If you can
afford them, two publications, "The
American Architect and Building
News" and J. Litchfield's "History of
Furniture," should be as much a part
of the daily life as the daily papers
and the magazines. Most of the oil
paintings and the water colors might
be omitted rather than these. Sec
ond. The influence from good pieces
of statuary and good pieces of furni-i
ture. Third. The influence of some
hobby, especially of one that will keep
not only the boy's body at home but
his mind as well.
"If the boy is mechanically inclined,
a. cabinet-maker's bench and tools
may afford pastime and a means of
expression for the ideals the publi-
cations mentioned might suggest.
I would not recommenu me ,
