Cpl. H. Meteyer, who was arrested
for the -affair at the mayor's luau
and whom the city attorney's office
refused to prosecute after arrest, will
afawar before 'court , martial on a
charge of disorderly conduct, accord
ing to information heard yesterday.
It is reported that Meteyer has con
sented to be tried, the trial to be for
the purpose of getting all the evidence
In the matter on official documents to
be forwarded to Washington, rat" Fort
I)e Rnssy it was reported that this
trial will start as soon as Mayor Lane
returns with the congressional party
and that a similar investigation mill
be carried on by the U. S. S. Mary
land, one of the members of the crew
. having made complaint against the
treatment accorded the uniform wear
ers at the luau.
At the Island forts the principal top
1c of conversation Is the outcome of
the reported court martial. The sol
diers are pinning their belief on the
exoneration of Meteyer, the forward
ing of the evidence in the case to the
war department and the possibilities
because of the Incident" of the isl
and detail being allowed to wear civil
Ian clothes off duty. - , , -
"Had Mayor Lane -felt kindly t(H
wards the soldiers," said one of the in
terested soldiers, "he would have
taken the only. coarse reasonable; -he
would have notified the department
headquarters and asked for a provost
guard.- Such a request, I feel certain,
would have resulted in a heavy guard
or a general order to the soldiers to
stay away from the luau."
A petition- asking that Judge Alex
ander A. Larnach be appointed admin
istrator of the estate of David J. Gar
den,, deceased, has been filed In circuit
court by Henry II. Williams, creditor.
The estate is valued at about $400.

Tragedy Off Lahaina Followed
By Coroner's Inquest
The Maul News of last Saturday
gives the following account of the ac
cident off Lahaina the previous week,
concerning which conflicting reporta
"Death from drowning due to over
turning of a boat manned by a crew
of the I.-I. S. N. Co., at Lahaina, Maul,
rough the carelessness and neglect
of said crew."
Such was the verdict of the coro
ner's jury in each of the Inquests held
at Lahaina on Thursday morning over
the bodies of Mrs. Ushi Knwaye and
Chow Soy. The jury consisted of D.
J. Whitesead. David Espinda. Philip
Espmaa, Kooert oomnar, t. Kaiwi
and William Keliiheleua,
Sheriff Clement Crowell as coronef
conducted the inquests. ;
Thrown into a boiling srf at La
haina, when a shore boat of the Inter
Island steamer Kilauea overturned at
9 o'clock last Saturday night, seven
passengers struggled for their lives
and two lost in the fight And while
they thus struggled, against y heavy
odds, the strong and able crew of the
boat swam ashore and left to their
fate the men, women and children
committed to their charge. Only Kiku
Iona, the boat-steerer, to whose negli
gence Jie accident is ascribed, stayed
by to assist, according to the testl
many. The other members of the crew are:
Umauma, Moses Smith, Ahla Moepona
It was the second boat to leave the
Kilauea, which had just arrived from
Honolulu. In it were Mr. and Mrs.
John Saffrey and two children an
Miss Keao of Olowaln, a Japanese and
a Chinese, whose names hare not been
learned, Kuwaye, husband of the Mrs.
Kuwaye who was drowned, and Chow
Soy, the aged Chinese vietim. '
For some reason Iona, the' steers
man, shaped a course for the shore fay
to the westward of the landing place.
When close in a large wave swung the
boat' around, and a second breaker,
even -larger; caught the craft broad
side and turned it over. Jon a says his
steering bar snapped. It drifted away
and has not been found. The other
members of the crew did not hear the
oar break, nor had any idea that such
a thing happened. The aurf, was per
haps a little higher than normal, but
not such as to be considered danger

bill for injunction filed today by Capt 1
A. F. Cassels. 1st Field Artillery, with I
station at Schofleld Barracks, against!
Charles T. Wilder, tix assessor and
collector of the first taxation division. '

from collecting any taxes or attempt-)
ing to collect any taxes, on Capt Cas
sels automobile. The matter is before !
Judge W. L. Whitney's court
It is stated in the bill that Scho
fleld Barracks is a military reserva-
tion, owned and used by the United!
States, and that at all times it has
been under the exclusive jurisdiction'
of the United States. i
.The bill continues that on January!

levied on ail property in the territory,
Cap!' Cassels was, 'and now is, owner
of an automobile, and that at no time
during the first day of January. 1915,

fines of Schofleld Barracks.
It is stated that Capt Cassels has
made no return of th automobile for
taxation for the year 1915 to the tax
