LOSES POINTS ed to Hart, that if any offense Lad been commuted It traa the embezzle ment of stock and not money, and that there was nothing to show that Hart had converted any money to nla own use. . Tbe attorney also declared that the evidence had failed to show that the money alleged to have been e'mbezxled amounted to the value of securities within the meaning of the statute, but that "It waa only credits on the book of the brokerage firm.

IN FRAUD TRIAL Out Purported Confession From Record After the defense had lot two im portant points, the cake of Lionel K. A. Hart, former local representative of the Charles A. Stoneham broker ace concern of New York and now on trial for embezzlement, came .to a lose in Circuit Judge Heen's court to lay. The attorneys will meet at S:5) o'clock tomorrow morning to arrange instructions and arguments will begin at 9 o'clock. The defense lost its first point when Judge Heen overruled a motion to Urike from the record, the testimony of Chester A. Doyle and Detective Captain Arthur McDuffie. which was to the effect that, Hart, while In prisoti in San Francisco, admitted that tie had converted funds of clients, to his own use and declared that be would retnrn to Honolulu and plead guilty to all tharges against him. " Following the" court's ruling on the motion. AttorneyTNV. D. tymer. conn Fel for Hart, moved for a directed ver dict of not jjuflty. The court overrul ed this. After lie had closed his case, Attorney Lymer again moved for a di rected verdict and waa again overrul ed. The first jnotlon was made prior to the defense, putting on its case. Attorney Lymer's notion was based on 15 grounds!.-Among, other things, he contended that the prosecution had failed to, prove tbV charge In the In dictment, that It had failed to prove the embexrlernent of anr funds entrus1- Attorney Lymer took the stand as the first witness for the defense and said that he had appeared again t Hart in 1916. on behalf of Fred Harri son, -when the latter was attempting to have some shares of Montana Bing ham delivered to him. He added that he had "tried to make it as hot for Hart as 1 could." He went on to testify that Hart had shifted some of the credits in order to save the more valuable accounts when the firm .of Stoneham and Co. threat, ened to sell out ir he, Hart, did not put up the necessary margins. He further declared that all accounts on tho books of. the .brokerage company were Hart's and not in the names of the in dividual clients. 1 Intend" to sho,"'e safd In argu ment; that Stoneham' and Co.

Tractors Doing Big Work Mr. Smith related several interest Ing facts regarding the work on the first plantations on the Islands. In 1835 tbe Koloa plantation on Kauai was opened, closely followed by the La haina plantation oh Maul. In those days there were no irrigation facili ties and no artificial fertilization. The chemist and the engineer are related to the artisan, stated Mr. Smith, inasmuch as they create. The artisan may think the laboratory ef forts of such men as chemists and engineers are futile and idle, said the speaker, but the entire future of the in dustry, the utilization of waste mater ials and new discoveries and inven tions that will aid the work and hu manity, will be accomplished only by the trained mind. At the close of Mr. -Smith's talk, the chemists adjourned to ' another room, where their meeting was held. Chairman Andrews then appointed K. Kopke as acting chairman of the en gineers' meeting.

The Chinese was sent on Tuesday back to the Big Island, the request of his friends for a new trial having been granted. Persons who have observed him for some time are of tbe opinion that he is insane. As has been stated before, Lum Dim is willing and anxious to die. Day after day in Oahu prison he would plead with Sheriff Jarrett to get tbe execution over, claiming that the man he killed was getting too far ahead of him in that country rcross the river. He feared, he said, that the dead man would be winning friends who would be waiting to make it hard for Lum Dim when he arrived. 8TAR-BULLEV.N Gives YOJ TC DAY'S NEWS TODAY tfflUPINE Granulated Eyelids, Sort Em, Eyes Inflamed by MS ti I) Smtu Dmat and WaU quickly XHCVrM 1 " relieved b Murine.

M. C. A. Captain George Clark. U. S. N., following the welcome address made by Secretary Horn of the Army and Navy Y. M. C. A., outlined the duties which fall upon the naval forces, and at the close of the service thanked all who bad taken part in the program. The music for the occasion was especially good. The Apollo Club was in perfect harmony and accord in its rendering of Kipling's "Recessional" to the beautiful setting by Reginald De Koven. and the roloists. Mrs. Charles Hall and Mrs. George Brown, were their best, Mrs. Hall singing "Rest in the Lord." and Mr. Brown the hymn, "Abide With Me." The band from the naval station rendered sev eral selections. U. S. District Attorney S. C. Huber made the memorial address, speaking with a depth and sincerity of feeling. After a resume of the war, and the terrible atrocities that led up to Amer ica's joining the Allied forces, he said : "If you look Into the pages of his tory you will find that wars have been waged and men have fought since time began for but two reasons. One is selfish ambition, which covers brutal greed,a thirst for power and a desire to require at the expense of life and honor what rightfully belongs to another. That is the first reason that Is German's cause. The other reason men fight is for protection, for life and home and liberty that is our reason for being in this war." Speaking of the treatment accorded Belgium, Judge Huber added. Is it any wonder that America joined the war to beat back this common foe of humanity Germany? We could not sit back and see these smaller and weaker nations trampled under foot. That is why I have tried to picture to you the cause for which these twenty-eight men died." After the national anthem, played by the naval station band. Secretary Horn invited the audience to look over the new Army and Navy "Y" quarters, and many availed themselves of the opportunity, c 1 WE STORE EVERYTHING JAMES H.
