HONOLULU STAB-BULLETIN, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBEE 21, 1917.
IN FIRST BATTLE
Court Holds Contestants Have
Shown Nothing to Prove
1917 Paper a Forgery
Another point in favor of the ap
pointment of John F. Colburn as tem
porary administrator of the estate o!
the late Queen Liliuokalani was gain
ed by his attorneys late yesterday af
ternoon when, after several hours of
argument and taking of testimony,
Circuit Judge C. W. Ashford held that
sufficient evidence had not been ad
duced to overcome the presumption
that, after a casual Inspection, the
purported will of August 29, 1917, is
a valid document.
Yesterday morning Judge Ashford
held that nothing had been shown by
the contestants as to why Colburn
should not be a candidate for the ap
pointment In the afternoon the con
testants were allowed wider scope in
their efforts to prove that the 1917
will, from a casual Inspection, Is a
forgery. Several witnesses were call
ed but the court's ruling again favor
ed Colburn. The next question Is be
settled is whether Colburn is a "fit
and proper person" to be appointed
Attorney William O. Smith, who
had known the late queen Intimately
for about 50 years, expressed the opin
GOAT MEAT SUGGESTED
AS VEAL SUBSTITUTE
Maybe by and by Island residents
will eat goat- meat Instead of veal.
lamb, mutton and beef. If a suggestion
made at the last meeting of the Food
Commission meets with the general
approval of the Honolulu meat-eating
public. There are plenty of goats on
the islands, the real, quadrupedlc kind
that may be eaten without - resorting
to cannibalism. The Food Commis
sion wants to ; make itself perfectly
clear. It means the sort of goat that
can stick its four feet against a per
pendicular wall of rock and, thus
stuck, nibble gracefully at a blade of
fat-producing grass growing out or; a.
horizontal crevice in that perpendlc
ular wall, utterly unmindful of a yawn
Ing chasm directly beneath and 200
feet below. That's the kind pt goat
the Food Commission has in mind.
Goat meat makes good food, and to
rid the islands of goats the kind the
Food Commission meanswould be a
godsend, for where goats grow and
flourish, nothing else does. Goat meat
is very nice and tender, before It gets
tough.jand Is full of nourishment.
Seriously speaking, the Food Com
mission considers goat meat worthy
of a trial. Those who have eaten
young kid maintain that it is delicious,
combining the flavor of lamb and wild
venison. " Certainly the more goat con
sumed as food, the less beef. There
fore, in the language of the Foor Com
mission, to conserve beef why not eat

the writing resembled in some re
spect her signature of many years ago.
Many other signatures of , the queen
were identified by Mr. Smith, includ

those on documents which are a par:
of the still pending litigation which
was begun when Delegate Kuhio
brought his suit in 1915 to break the
Shown a signature in a -book entitl
ed "Hawaii's Story by Hawaii's
Queen," Mr. Smith said:: "That is
very like .her handwriting which I
. have . seen when she used pen and
ink." He was also shown a signature
on a document entitled "Motion to
Dismiss." "That is her signature,"
said the witness.
Two other documents, bearing . the
signatures of the queen, were shown
he witness. One was the commission
of Colburn as a member of the board
of health under the monarchy, and the
other his commission as minister of
the Interior for the monarchy. Mr.
Smith identified both of these signa
tures. Mrs. Lahilahi Webb, owner of the
book, "Hawaii's Story by Hawaii's
Queen," was then called to the stand.
She testified that the signature in
the book was written by the queen on
March 31, 1917. She said she . went tor
the queen and asked, her, to write her
name In the book. .
"She write very slowly and shakily,"
said Mrs. Webb. "'It's very shaky,'
she said. 1 don't cars, your majesty,'

During the hearing yesterday af
ternoon, Judge Ashford remarked that
counsel should bear in mind the fact
that it is not always necessary for a
person making a will to sign it per
sonally. He said that a person who
was feeble or otherwise incapacitated
might flirect, another persoln' to sign
the will; or, the hand of the maker
might be guided by the hand of an
other person, or another person might
sign the will with the hand of the
maker resting on his. This point was
brought up by the court during the In
vestigation regarding the validity of
the signature on the 1917 will.
where they will review troops from
the 1st, 25th and 32nd Infantry regl

pass In this review, which will be held
by Brigadier General Wisser for the
special benefit of the congressional
party. - .-
A luncheon will be served after the
review and following this the party
will motor to Kawailoa to have a look
at the, National Guard camp.
The members of the Honolulu Auto

give themselves an outing tomorrow,
making the run to both posts, as Scho

lic for this occasion. E. E. Dodge, o?
the automobile club committee, asks
all members to report at the Young
hotel at 9:30 tomorrow morning.

Attention Is drawn to the fact that
the dinner by the Chamber of Com
