THE CONSPIRACY CASES.
THE MOTION TO DISMISS IS
And the Court Proceeds With the Talc.
InR of Testimony on Behalf of
At the opening of the Court this
morning the decision of Judge Carter
in the conspiracy cases was put off for
an hour to allow of the dispatch of
some minor cases. At eleven o'clock,
in the presence of a crowded court
room, Judge Carter railed the case of
the Provisional Government vs. Walker,
Sinclair and Crick, and read the follow
ing decision on the defendants' motion
to dismiss :
The Court regrets very much that
the limited time at its disposal for
coming to a conclusion upon this
motion has prevented a more thorough
and careful analysis of the evidence
offered on behall of the prosecution as
the Court would liked to have made,
and the conclusion reached must not
be taken as indicatirg in any way a
conclusion which might be reached
upon a full examination of the testi-
. mony taken. It must be remembered
that the motion is simply preliminary,
and that, as is ordinarily the case with
a motion of that kind, it dots not carry
the weight of one made at another
stage of the proceedings. I have
hastily written down some of the points
I have gathered together, which 1 will
Defendants are charged with con
spiracy. Conspiracy is defined by our
penal code to be a "malicious combina
tion or mutual understanding or con
certing together of two or more to
commit, etc." A conspiracy, therefore,
consists, not merely in intention, but in
agreement, by two or more persons
There must be a previous concert to
do the unlawful act. 1 heir agreement
is an act in advancement of the intent
of each. I he agreement may be ex
press or implied, and it is not essential
that any but the leading conspirators
know the exact part each is to perform.
The least degree of consent or collusion
is sufficient, and this joint assent of
minds, like all other parts of a criminal
case, may be established as an inference
oi the iurv. it is suthcicnt n two ir
more in any manner, through any con
trivance, positively or tacitly, c line t'
an understanding. Base c mbination
with joint design is sufficient.
The common design or object of
the defendants is clearly disclosed by
the testimony to have been the over
throw of the 'Provisional Government
It is not necessary to constitute a eon
spiracy that the means should be pre
determined. The question here is
whether there wjs any collusion. The
evidence so far clearly indicates that
there was between the defendants
Walker and Sinclair. Hut is there
prima facie evidence that Crick was
one of these. It is very slight and
the Court is called upon to consider
whether it is sufficient to, put him upon
The only manner in which I can
reach a conclusion is by reversing the
proposition in this form : Is there
probable cause to believe, on the evi
dence offered by the prosecution in
support of the charge that a jury
would accept the hypothesis that
Walker and Sinclair, on the one hand,
and Crick, on the other, were both
designing the overthrow of the Govern
ment entirely independent. The de
clarations of Walker and Crick indicate
collusion as to explosives to be used,
the two were seen together visiting the
person to whom the declarations had
been made, and on other occasions.
Crick roomed in Sinclair's house, and
these, with other like malters, though
very slenderly, connect Crick with the
others charged sufficiently to make it
impossible for me to believe that his
design was independent of that of the
The motion for discharge is there
fore overruled, and the accused may
proceed with their defense.
The first witness for the defense was
John Phillips, who testified that Mar
mont's veracity was not good, especially
with the people he lived with, and that
he had a bad reputation generally.
A. M. JJrown testihea that he was
deputy marshal and as such had
searched the premises of Cummins and
Walker on the day of the arrests, and
had' once searched the Central House,
but had found no explosives.
John Cummins testified that he was
related to Walker, and that all ot Mar
mont's testimony in relation to drilling
men at his house was untrue. He had
given Colonel Soper a list of the arms
in his possession some time since.
Major Seward, Cummins private
secretary, corroborated all that he had
sworn to, but went into details about
the stables, yard, etc., at the residence,
Colonel J. H. Soper was the next
witness called. He was examined as
to lists of arms in his possession, and
was finally asked if he thought it was
probable any one on the Islands could
have 1000 stand of arms in his posses
sion unknown to the G vernment, to
which he replied that it was not.
The Court then adjourned to 1 145 p. m.
Tug-of-War on the Fourth.
The native employees of the Hono
lulu Iron Works have organized a tug-of-war
team which has been pr. dicing
every evening for three weeks past
They lately issued a challenge to the
champion fish-market team to pull
them for $50 on the morning of the
Fourth.. The challenge was promptly
accented and the pull will come off
early in the morning. In addition to
this the natives employed in the Iron
Works have also raised an additional
$co with which they propose to have
a urand luau on the slopes of Punch
bowl as soon as the tuc-of-war is over.

During the week ending June 29th
twenty deaths were reported at the

LOUIS STOLZ' MURD1MR.
THE GOVERNMENT INTENDS
TO CAPTURE HIM.
Kalalau Lepers to be Cleaned Out
The "Bulletin's" Charges Refuted
by Positive Evidence.
The murder of Deputy Sheriff Louis
F. Stolz was almost 'he sole topic of
conversation on the stteets yesterday,
and much .surmise was txpressed as to
what action the Government would
take in the matter. This was allayed
to a great extent by a rumor which
leaked out soon after the meeting of
the Executive and Advisory Councils
that the Government would take
prompt action in the matter and send
n expedition to Kauai for the purpose
of cleaning nut the leper settlement at
Kalalau and capturing the murderer at
l'he expedition, which starts for that
purpose on the Waialeale at 3 r. M. to
day, will consist of a force of about
thirty well-armed men under the com
mand of Captain William Larscn.
Some of ihcm arc volunteers from the
barracks, the rest citizens and police.
Dr. Cooper and Health officer Rcy-
nolds will go in their several capacities.
a small Krupp howitzer will be taken
besides plenty of arms, ammunition
nd provisions. The steamer will so
direct to I Ianalci, thence 10 the Kalalau
beach, where the expedition will be
landed. It is understood that Captain
Larsen is vested with supreme
authority and has orders to bring the
cpers out of the valley dead or alive.
At noon to-day President Dile issued
an order proclaiming martial law in the
districts of Hanalciand Waimea.
With regard to the outrageous
charg-s made against the Board of
Health in last night's issue of the Bul
letin, the following official correspon
dence is commended to that unsavory
sheet and its few readers :
Letter No. 1.
Waimea, Nov. 18, 1892.
David Dayton, Esq.,
Pres. Hoard of Health,
Dear Sir: A leper belonging to
this district (Waimea) after having
been examined by Dr. Campbell and
having been notified that he would
have to go to Molokai asked for and
received permission to stay a week
n order to settle up bis affairs.
fhis request, as has been our prac-
ice here, was granted upon his prom
ising to be ready and willing to go
upon return of the steamer Pele. He
has broken his promise and gone
over to Kalalau where so many other
lepers are. As this is the first per
son who has escaped from this dis
trict since I have been deputy sheriff
here, I am anxious to bring him
back and have requested Dr. Camp
bell to get out a warrant for him,
which he will do. Unless I receive
positive orders to the contrary it is
my intention to proceed shortly to
Kalalau and endeavor to arrest the
person in question, who is a man
named Koolau. t think it quite prob
able that unless I happen upon him
unawares resistance will be shown,
as almost everv man in Kalalau is
armed, and much as I should regret
and endeavor to avoid it, some
body (it may be myself or a con
stable) may be hurt or killed. As
the matter may assume proportions
of an alarming kind, I would be
pleased to receive any orders or ad
vice which the Board of Health may
deem proper in the matter, especial
Iy as the Board has, tacitly at least,
tolerated the lepers in Kalalau and
not ordered their removal, the man
being therefore justified to a certain
extent in going there.
Awaiting an answer, I remain,
L. H. Stolz.
Letter No. 2.
Waimea, Kauai, April 29, 1893
Hon. W. O. Smith,
Pres. Board of Health,
Dear Sir: Allow me to respectful
ly call your attention to the fact that
if it be the policy of the Board of
Health to remove, during the present
year, the lepers now residing at Ka
lalau, it would seem necessary that
steps in the matter be taken shortly
as the months during which a steam
er can effect a landing at Kalalau are
at hand. If a system of segregation
is to be carried out, undoubtedly these
people and those at presenton Niihau
should be removed to Molokai. I
cannot be otherwise than that
healthy persons will, and are at the
present time becoming mtected with
leprosy in consequence of existing
conditions. It is my opinion based
on a knowledge of the facts that the
amount of intimacy has been under
rated, and the difhculties of commu

Office of the Board of Health
Honolulu, May 8, 1893.
L. H. Stolz,
Agl. Bd. of Health,
Sir; I am instructed by the Board
of Health to acknowledge the receipt
of your letter of April 29, informing
us of your views on the continued
and illegal presence of lepers on Nii
huu and Kalalau, Kauai.
The Board fully understands the
gravity of the matter, and knows
that an attempt to remove the lepers
from Kalalau simply means reducing
the place by force of arms, probably
men will be killed on both sides
J owever,' before taking further stuns
M the matter, the Board desiros you
to send to this office n full report of
the number, age, and sex of nil the
lepers at Kalalau, also, if possible, a
like list of nil the other people resid-
ng in the valley of Kalalau. It
would also, perhaps, be interesting to
the government to known the quan
tity nnd kind of fire-arms in their pos
session. With regard to lepers on Niihau
ou will please have them sent to
lonolulu for examination first op

Waimha, May 19, 1893.
Board of Health, Honolulu.
Dear SiVs: I would respectfully
represent, and strongly urge, that be
fore any forcible stops ate taken in
regard to the removal of lepers from
Kalalau (should the lioRrd decide to
remove them), that
1st. A stringent quarantine he
placed, in the valley of Kalalau, allow
ing no communication whatever
either for the non-lepers or lepers,
between Kalalau and other places.
Boats are engaged in taking taro and
paiai to Niihau and other places and
presumably taking visitors back and
forth. Should this course of income
nd communication be cut off and the
well people told plainly that quaran
tine would not be removed until the
ick people were gone; I am sure
that it would have a most salutary
influence on the non-lepers and cause
them to work and assist in the remov
1 of the lepers. To accomplish and
carry into eltect such a quarantine,
three stations would in my mind be
necessary. One on the Ilutmlei trail
of two white men and four natives,
one on the Waimea trail of like get
p and strength; and one on the
beach at Kalalau to .prevent boats
or canoes from leaving or landing.
2nd. As soon as the Board de
cides on the removal of said lepers a
good man should be sent in to Kala
lau to urge and persuade them to give
in peaceably. Something might be

Letter No. 4.
Waimea, May 23, 1893.
Hon. W. O. Smith.
Pres. Board of Health,
Sir: In accordance with your
request, I send herewith a complete
list of the residents of the valley of
Kalalau, Kauai. There are twenty-
three households in the valley, four
of which, however, consist of only
one old man each.
In nine households no leprosy is
isible to a casual observer.
In three households all the inmates
are nmicted with leprosy, while in
leven households the inmates are
part lepers and part non-lepers.
The population number 102; of
whom 71 are apparently non-lepers
and 28 are lepers. Of the lepers 18
are male, 10 are female, 18 are
adults, 10 are minors. Only C rifles
could be heard of. Of these only
three are available and one of these
belongs to a non-leper. I refer you
to the list for more particular infor
mation. The lepers do not wish to
be taken away, as they believe the,
new Japanese doctor at Kilauea may
be able to cure some of them. J.
Kauai and Paoa are the two lepers
most likely to give trouble. It is my
belief that if these two and perhaps
one or two others were removed that
most of the rest would go volunta
rily. I also believe that these leaders
could be taken with a small force.
Two or three men like Sam Ku
with what material we have here,
would do. To obtain the enclosed
list, it was necessary for me to hire
canoe from Mana to Kalalau and
return at an expense ot ten dollars.
I will send voucher for same as soon

Letter N. 5.
Department of the Attorney,
Honolulu, H. I., May 31, 1893
L. H. Stolz, Esq.,
Deputy Sheriff and Agent Board
of Health, Waimea, Kauai.
Dear Sir: The Board of Health
have carefully considered your full
report in regard to lepers at Kalalau,
as also your suggestions as to best
method to be pursued to remove
The plan of laying siege, and pre
venting communication with the
valley meets with the objection that
the well people there might have
legal remedies against us if we thus
restrained them of their liberty.
the Board desires to have them
removed, and the plan you suggest
may have to be resorted to, but be
fore doing that, the Board desires
that you go to Kalalau and interview
J. Kauai and other lepers, and people
there, and see if any other plan will
answer. Your expenses will, of
course, be paid by the Board.
Use your own good judgment in
.regard to what to say to them.
If some, or all of them, can be
persuaded to come away we can
arrange to send a steamer there at
an appointed time to bring them to
Honolulu lor examination. And
those who have to be sent to Molo
kai, will be well cared for and hav
their wants supplied,
William O. Smith,
WAIM6A, Juno 8th, 1803,
Hon. W. O. Smith,
Dear Sir: In accordance with the
instructions contained in your letter
of the 31st ult. , I went to Kalalau
nnd personally interviewed most of
the lepers. I find out of the 28
teported cases, 0 cases which I would
not on my own responsibility under
take to remove, some of them I am
sure being non-lepers, and in the
others the disease, if it exists at all,
not being far enough advanced for a
non-medico to order their removal.
As far as their going peaceably is
concerned my trip was only a partial
success. The majority indeed,
among whom is J. Kauai, desire to
go, and will make no trouble, but
about four or five of the young, strong
fellows, say they will not go, while
as many more were non-committal.
Should the obstinate ones be re
moved, the non-committal ones will
undoubtedly go of their own accord.
The well people are some of them in
favor of having the lepers removed,
while others are against it, and others
again, indifferent. The amount and
kind of intimacey existing between
lepers and non-lepers at Kalalau is
simply abominable. I believe that
first and last there will he fifty cases
of leprosy in consequence of the
lepers having been allowed to remain
at Kalalau during the last five years,
that would not otliet wise have existed.
I came to an agreement with the
people who were willing to go that
f:iey were to be ready during the
1st week in July. J. Kauai willing
o return to Waimea to settle up his
anairs 1 allowed him to--do so, as
well as some other Waimea people.
think the results of my trip are all
that could under the circumstances,
be reasonably expected.
1 am respectfully.
L. II. Stolz,
After all the fcbove correspondence
Mr Stolz came to Honolulu about
two weeks ago and interviewed the
members of the Hoard of Health, and
t his own expressed wish and with the
nderstandmg that he could accomplish
the removals without bloodshed, he
as allowed to have his way.

Four Sailinc Vessels Go Out This
Afternoon The Historic Hart- ,

Vallkjo, June 18. The historic old
warship Hartford, now moored in
Rotten Row at Mare Island, where fur
many years she has been the plaything
of the tide, is about to be taken from
the Row and put in commission, in ac
cordance with Congressional legislation.
By a recent act of Congress the Hart
ford and Keursarge are to be kept on
the active list of the warships of the
American Navy, regardless of all ex

old-style batteries and fittings, her
engines repaired and new boilers put

by a bittery of modern high-power
guns, it being the intention of the Navy
Department to equip her with six-inch
rifles fur the main battery, supported
by a battery of four-inch rapid-fire
rifles. The ship will be totally dis
mantled and the sail-carrying capacity
reduced to a rig similar to that of the
cruiser Chicago. This change will

MORE ROYALIST RUMORS.
There Is Nothing- in the Report About
Trouble on Lahaina.
The absurd rumors going about to
day concerning an insurrection on
Lahaina or on Maui (most people did
not seem to know which), when inves
tigated and boiled down, simply amount
to this :
For some time past there has been
trouble in the native church at
Lahaina over the pastor. The
congregation is divided into
two factions, one of which is in
favor of keeping the pastor and the
other of ousting him. The trouble has
recently culminated in one faction
barring up the doors of the church,
while the other threatens to break them
down whenever they feel like it. This
state of affairs has been going on for
three weeks, and complaint having been
made to Marshal Hitchcock of the
state of affairs he has detailed Captain
Parker and Policemen John Ihomas
and William Needham to go over to
Lahaina on this afternoon's steamer
and settle the matter amicably if pos
sible; if not to arrest the parties who
are causing the trouble. Captain
Parker is allowed full discretion in the
matter. And thus another Royalist
rumor falls flat.
THE EXPEDITION LEAVES.
Departure of the Men Who Are to Purify
Shortly before 3 i. M., the men com
prising the expedition to go to Ka
lalau and arrest the murderer of Louis
Stolz, left the Police Station and march
ed to the steamer Waialeale. There
were 25 enlisted men of the govern
ment troops under command of Lieut.
King, 9 white volunteers, 2 native
volunteers (Prince Kunuiakea and at
tendant), besides Dr. Cooper, Health
Officer Reynolds and Luther Wilcox, cf
the Supreme-Court-Clerk's office, who
goes as official interpreter. The whole
force is under the command of Captain
William Larsen, who has been commis
sioned Deputy Marshal pro tern. The
Waialeale has been ordered placed at
his disposal as long as he sees fit. The
expedition takes along one small Krupp
battery, is armed to the teeth and has
abundant ammunition and provisions
to last three weeks.
Specimens of the citrus blight, pre
served in alcohol, have been forwarded
by Commissioner Marsden to Prof. C.
B. Reilly, U. S. Kntomologist in the
Department of Agriculture at Washing
ton, and also to Baron Ferdinand von
Muhler, the eminent botanist of Mel
bourne. Forty Chinese who arrived by the
Belgic are at the quarantine station.
If their health continues good until the
3d of July they will be released in time
to join in the Fourth of July festivities.
