' "They can have every red cent that I poetess. I would be just as hap

more reason why I should lose custody of my child because of a will con

Henry Gaillard Smart, defendant in the legal ..fiflht 'to remove his 19

"These affidavits "which have been filed for the purpose of establishing
the alleged fact that I am unfit to be the guardian of my own child are com

JAPANESE MOST ORDERLY,
JUDGE ASHFORD SAYS IN
CHARGE TO GRAND JURY
The new territorial grand Jury for
I the year 1915 was formally Impaneled
and sworn by Circuit Judge Ashford
late this afternoon. The court read
a lengthy charge In which he outlined
the duties of the Inquisitors, among
other things Instructing them that
they are authorized to Investigate any
unusual conditions, though these con
ditions need not always call for crimi
nal charges.
Discussing crime and the criminal
court's work, he quoted figures showing
the distribution of prisoners of nation
ality or race, making the following
significant comment:
"It will thus be seen that of all the
nationalities mentioned, the Japanese
make the most credible showincr. with
the Chinese a fairly close second: that
the Porto Ricans make by far the
most unfavorable Viowing. and that
the Filipino follow them, but at a
wide Interval. These figures may sug
gest to those responsible for our im
migration In the past, as well as to
those to whom such matters shall b
confided in the future, some food for
thought, and It is to he hoped that thin
food will be cbeerfullv consumed and
thoroughly assimilated.' ;

later, after the new contract was
signed, superintending the fabrication
of steel that is to be used in the dock
under the new construction plans.
Accompanying "Drydock" Smith' is

than, a year ago, included stations at

There is a big station nearing com

and this may be used as a relay be
