Nakagawa, one of the VVaikapu raid cases and the one on " r which is based the against Crabbe, Enos, dampc;e suit ' Coellio und ! Clark. The court ruled that where a per son permits a prohibition officer who detects by smell or otherwise what he believes to be forbidden liquor and the owner of the premises permits the officer to enter and investigate and such officer finds a quaniity of prohi bited liquor, there has been no viola tion of the constitutional rights of the owner of the premises. Whether or not the content of a bottle introduced as evident is fit for beverage purposes at the time of the trial is immaterial provided it has been shown the liquid was fit for bev erage purposes at the time of its seiz ure. Motion is Denied The court overruled the motion to strike the evidence offered in thu bot tle presented and by the testimony of the raiding officers subject, however, to the right of the defense to f'iow that there had been a violation of his constitutional rights In the entrance upon his premises, the search and the seizure. Magistrate Mossman said there was evidence given by the offi cers that the defendant permitted them to enter his premises, invited them in they had said, and showed them the kitchen. There was the evidence of Coellio that he sampled the stuff at the time of its seizure, that it was rice beer, that rice beer was fit for beverage purposes, it it be shown that there was a violent en try of the premises the rulings will be reconsidered Trial of the Nakagawa case was resumed this morning and Officer ' Coelho called to the stand. Over the objection of the. defense be testified that he knew what rice beer is, had drank It on different occasions for sev eral years past and knew it to be fit for beverage purposes and that the stuff seized was rice beer. Witness Balks Attorney Murphy on cross examina tion called for a cork screw and ask ed witness if he would sample the stuff offered as evidence. Coelho re fused. Then followed an altercation between counsel as to whether the condition of the contents of the bottle offered as evidence now was import ant. The defense held it must be shown that the evidence offered was fit for beverage purposes and the prosecution that the court might take cognizance of common knowledge of natural laws and that it is a well known fact that rice beer Is unfit for beverage purposes after 12 days un less a preservative has been used. The defense held that the prosecution must show by expert testimony that such chemical changes occur. Following the ruling the prosecution rested and Attorney Murphy called his client to the stand. The witness spoke no English and it was found there was no interpreter present and the court took a recess until the ser vices of a satisfactory interpreter is secured.

Ihe problem was lo get the settlers on the land so they would be successful fi nancially and be satisfied socially.
