The last number on the regular pro gram was Wood's "Roses of Picavdy." It was beautiful, simply beautiful. In to the ong was thrown the 'feelings of the real artist, the real master, that Mackenzie is. Deep silence reigned in the theatre for moments after the last notes had died away, speaking most emphatically of the way in which he had touched his audience than could have the greatest applause. " Audience Enthusiastic Call after call brouglit the singer back and he repeated the song "Good Bye" from Tosti that on Saturday night brought the entire house at Ka hului to its feet. Lastly, and a filling closing for the son of Maui, he sang "Aloha Oe." Coupled with his wonderful voice Mackenzie is the possessor of a vastly pleasing personality which makes itself felt throughout the audi ence. No feigned feeling enters into his selections. It is Mackenzie him self that sings. Mrs. A. A. Greene, an Island girl came with Mr. Mackenzie from Hilo and was his accompanist in both his concerts. Better in Kahului Saturday night in Kahului the house that greeted the greatest Hawaiian singer was not so large as the one he faced in Wailuku but it was no less i enthusiastic and he was in even bet-i ter voice there than last night.

Other numbers that especially pleased the Kahului audience were "Songs of Grussia" a queer Russian folk melody, "Little Mother of Mine," and "Ua Like No a Like."

I Attorney. Murphy closed his case by i calling Airs. Nakagawa who corrobor ated the. testimony of her husband. Then he closed and County Attorney Bevins called Tom Clark and Enos in rebuttal. They testified they did not enter the main dwelling of Nakagawa but called him to come out and that iCrabbe commanded him to open the Kitclien door winch was unlocked and which the defendant did. The wit nesses in rebuttal said Nakagawa's adission that he was making rice beer was alter and not before he had open ed his kitchen on command. Attorney Murphy then renewed his motions for the striking of evidence, the elimination of all connected with the kitchen and he quoted the case of U. S. vs Phisser at length. Magistrate Mossman then called on the prosecu tion for arguments relative to whether or not Crahbe's demand was to be con sidered coercion in the light of court decisions. At the close of arguments Magis trate Mossman said he would render his decision Thursday. Two witnesses wore called by the defense in the case of the Territory vs T. Nakagawa in the Wailuku dis trict court on Friday afternrnn when the hearing was resumed before Mag istrate Harry Mossman. Then the case went over until this morning with a probability of being further con tinued until Thursday. On the witness stand tho defendant told a very different story from that of the officers. He said they Voiced their way into the house and "pushed him l7o:n behind" toward the kitchen. Defendant said that he knew them to be officers and was afraid to resist. He gave practically the same testi mony as his allegations in his suit for damages for trespass in the case ex cetit that he said he did not see any pistols displayed, that he knew them to be officers and so presumed they had pistols and "saw swellings on their hips." The other witness was officer Coel ho, called by the defense, to testily on how rice beer is made. The prose cution had made him an "expert" in the 'morning to show that the liquor was a "beverage fit for human con sumption." Attorney Murphy called his to show how much of an expert on the subject he was. It is expected that Nakagawa's wife will be put on the witness stand later to substantiate what her husband said1 about the officers "forcing" their way into his place. - INVESTIGATES EXPRESS RATES (ASSOCIATED I'UESS) WASHINGTON, July 10 The In terstate Commerce Commission an- j nounced an immediate investigation j of express rates throughout the country.

Plaster Ceiling Of Honolulu Theater Falls On Spectators (ASSOCIATED PliESM HONOLULU, July 8 Nineteen persons were injured, none seriously, when the plaster of the celling of the Star Theater in the Kahili district fell here today during a matinee per formance.

There were 197 persons in the theater at. the time and there was no panic. Manuel Calhua, owner of the theater, said an investigation would be made before the theater was reopened. HONOLULU July. 10 The official investigation Saturday afternoon and Saturday night, made partly through interviews with victims of the acci dent, uncovered the following points and allegations: 1. Assertion by a Honolulu contrac tor, who visited the scene of the ac cident with the fire marshal Saturday night, that the collapse was due to improper and inadequate methods of "tying" the plaster to the wooden cross-pieces designed to hold up the ceiling. 2. Assertion by this contractor that the steel-wire staples used in fasten ing the wire netting or "wire lath" to the wooden snips were not strong enough, and pulled out under the weight or the plaster. 3. Possibility that this pulling out process began last fall alter heavy rains, when the roof leaked and some inches of water was standing above the ceiling. 4. Possibility that the .ceiling w is further weakened by jarring when holes were punched through the hard plaster to drain the standing water out. 5. Allegation that the ceiling be gan to sag or give way as early as last November, and that this sagging was not attended to. 6. Allegations that at least two of the exit doors of 'the theater were not only closed but barred, when the accident occuved. The baring of exits or any Vcki.ig o!" the doors, is forbid den by law. Exits may be closed but the doors cannot legally be lock ed. 7. No building plans for the the ater are on file in the building in spector's ollice at least, they can't be found.
