It la more than likely that, as far

after Monday morning. Such at, least

In spite of this It was tlident that

The regulation reads In part: "Any

This, say the captains, will prevent

Growing out of ahe ravno-js John ii

circult court by Judge A. A. Wilder to
quiet title to the Pleasanton Hotel

decision rendered by U. S. District
Judge S. B. Dole ;n 1910, which was
confirmed by the Ninth Circuit court
of appeals, San Francisco, last Octoo
er, this suit may prove the entering
wedge for a vast amount of litigation
over titles of properties held by vari
ous individuals throughout the Makiki
Judge Wilder initiates the present
action as the "next friend" of Georg?
Ti Brown and Francis Hyde Ii Brown,
the heirs as children of Mrs. Irene ii
Holloway by a former marriage.
According to Judge Dole's decision
Mrs. Holloway. beneficiary under the
will of John li. is entitled only to a
lift intere. t in the estate, while her
two sons arr to have fee to the entire
estate upon 1,er death. On the strength
of this the i ; l ention is to be reasied
that she is entitled only to the bene
fts or income accruing from the p'op
t rty .and that she had no right to u.s
pose of it.
The pleaian on Hotel property was
disposed of by Mrs. Holloway some
ten or fifteen yars ago. and a lirge
quantity of other land in the district,
v. hich has siiuc been developed into

Thrilling Chase
Of Runaway Logs
At Pearl Harbor
Thrilling experiences with runaway
logs arc not confined to the lumber
camps of the northern woods. In fact.
the "'logging romance belt extends
clear to Pearl Harbor.
Last night the marine guard sta
'ioned at the new navy yard played
leading roles in a drama of the buck
ing timbers. One hundred and fifty
heavy piles, which had been confined
ly a boom alongside of the coaling
wharf site, went on the rampage when
the boom broke, and started to cruise
around the harbor on their own ac
count. Sergeant White, of the marine
guard, transformed his command into
lumber jacks for the time being, and
succeeded in making the boom fast
again after fifty logs had escaped.
Fortunately the tide was coming in.
and none of the runaways drifted out
to sea.
This morning the admiral's steam
barge was sent down from Honolulu
to search for the missing piles and tow
them back to their proper anchorage.

Whether the whipping post, as a
form of corrective corporal punish
ment, will) fever become a feature of
the territorial courts and prisons may
be doubtful, but a wide variance of
opinion has developed among the mem
bers of the Hawaiian bar concerning
the constitutionality of a legislative
act of this character.
Circuit Judge W. J. Robinson is
quoted as stating in an address re
cently that flogging is barred in the
territory by the eighth amendment to
the national constitution, wherein the
stipulation is made that convicted per
sons may not be subjected to "cruel
or unusual punishment"
Several attorneys of bfgh standing.
while not desiring to have their names
made public in this discussion, have
expressed the opinion that this amend
ment cannot apply to the whipping
post. Some bave expressed this
opinion while sating at the same time
they are not in favor of flogging. The
point is that the punishment may, not
be classed as "cruel or unusual."
Attorney General V. VV. Thayer
says the whipping post is an institu
tion in Delaware, and has been used
from time to time in a number of
other commonwealths, adding that in
several instances the courts have
ruled directly on the question of the
constitutionality of the penalty.
Another lawyer cites the fact that
the whipping post was more or less
an established form of punishment at
the time the constitution and the
amendments were adopted, so that,
evidently it was not regarded as un
usual in those days and was not
checked by law.
Following are some legal points
quoted :
On page 565 of Volume 35, Lawyers'
Reports, Annotated, a summary of the
various decisions regarding the con
stitutionality of flogging is given. Per
haps tfie most interesting and the
most applicable of these, to the dis- j
cussion in this territory at the pres-
ent time is the case which arose In
New Mexico at the time that common
wealth was a territory.
The Report says: "The laws of
Mexico, which impose a penalty of not
less than thirty nor more than sixty
lashes for mule stealing, were upheld

The end Is in sight at last for the
two years' litigation between Robert
William Holt and Harry Armitage,
brought by the former demanding an
accounting from the latter, who had"
been in Holt's service for year aa
manager of his stock and livestock
operations. '
After hearing: an enormous amount
of testimony, taken at periods through
nut the last year, and devoting all hi
spare time for two months to a review
of the entire mass of evidence, M. T.
3imonton, the master appointed by the
court to handle the case, has submit
ted his report. This probably will be i
taken up by the court at an early
date and judgment entered according
to the master's recommendations.
When the suit was originally filed,
in 1910, Armitage claimed Holt owed
him $25,632.24. The master finds the
sum due Armitage to be $14,269.43.
A faint idea of the amount of work
bandied by Simonton. and over which
he burned much midnight gas. can
be gained from the fact that, he was
compelled to go over, page 'by page
and line by line, a mass of accounts
that would fill a fair sized library,
dating back to 1898. These Included
more than 100 check books and an
equal number of cash books -and ledg
ers showing accounts with Armitage,
with Allen & Robinson, H. F. Bertle
mann and W. C. Achi. More than 500
pages of transcript were reviewed, 250
exhibits examined and twenty-three
witnesses heard, the testimony of
these lasting for many years. :
The master's report,. as a result, is
a voluminous affair. Twenty-seven
pages are given to explanationav.why
certain individual items have " been
disallowed. There were about 1W ?
items thus handled.
A new building is being erected at
the Palama Settlement which will be
used as an office for James AJ Rath '
and W. S. Bowen. The old structure. ?
which was formerly used for thi pur
pose, has been moved onto the land
adjoining the Settlement grounds and
will be remodeled and nsed aa a resi
