DA SILVA SAID TO HAVE LEFT
The Widow In British Guiana Gets
Halt and the Sister In Brazil is to be
Looked for .
An alleged sister has come forward to
claim part of the estate of the late J.
A. da Sllva, whose death, followed by
the deaths of four other Portuguese
who drank some wine he left In- his
room, created a big sensation In the
Portuguese colony about a year ago.
He was supposed to have died with
out any relatives, but a widow was
heard from In British Guiana, and now
a supposed sister has been reported in
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
This morning Attorney J. M. vivas
appeared In court in behalf of the sis
ter .who has not been heard of direct
ly for about ten years. She once wrote
to Da Sllva about coming to Honolulu,
and the letter was produced to show
that she was his sister and that some
children are mentioned in the letter, so
that It Is claimed that If she Is dead,
there are nephews and nieces of Da
Sllva who have rights In the estate.
Judge Gear made an order, at the re
quest of Tom Fitch, that one-hnlf of
the estate be turned over to the widow
in British Guiana. Then he gave Viva
90 days to get information about the
alleged sister. If at the end of that
time the woman Is not discovered, the
estate will all go to the widow.
Da Sllva did not Intend that his wire
should have any of the money left. The
couple had been separated Tor some
time, and he spoke to friends hero about
her, slgnlfylp- his intention to make a
will that would prevent her from get
ting what he left, as he declared that
she had squandered a fortune for him.
The specall Jury called to Inquire Into
the causes of the Honolulu Stockyards
fire has been In session today at the
pol ce station. The Jury has been hold
ing executive sessions. Manager nice,
Night Foreman J. Sllva and a number
of Chinese employes of the stable were
examined but nothing which threw any
material light on the cause of the lire
was learned. They are In session this

JAPANESE LABOR BUREAU.
Offers to Furnish Laborers to Planta
The Hawaiian Labor Bureau, Is the
title of a new firm having temporary
ofllces In the Spreckels building, that
ofrers to furnish labor for plantations or
other corporations and also to under
take contract work.
The firm Is of Japanese origin under
the management of T. Matsuoka. a gen
tleman of polished manners andlluent
English, and has been In existence a
few months only. Mr. Matsuoka was
not prepared to say how many laborers
he could furnish at short notice for a
plantation, and stated that their gen
eral Idea was to center the unemploy
ed Japanese on tho different Islands
with a view to finding them work. To
that end branches are to be establish
ed Bhortly on the other Islands of the
In case of necessity the bureau Is al

A SHERRY AND LOYALTY.
A good story Is going about In con
nection with the royal wine sale. There
Is, of course a good deal of "tasting "
but the quantity allowed Is not large to
the proposed buyer. Four enterprising
gentlemen, however, got hold of a whole
bottle for "tasting" purnoRes, and, re
tiring to a llttlo room, poured It Into
glasses. The ringleader had Just pro
posed the king's health when a voice
was heard: "I am sure, gentlemen, the
king will be much obliged to you for
your loyalty." It was the voice of o

HATHBURN'S "TRANSITION PERI-
OD" AT KOOLAU.
Reported to Have Tried Several Cases
and Dismissed Them After He Had
Resigned as Magistrate.
An umuslng legacy of the late
prominence of Judge W. H. Rath
burn of Koolau, he of Little John
ny Dugun memory, has just been
brought to the notice of the authorities.
When the Rnthburn-Carter scandal be
came known Rathburn resigned his
position as magistrate for Koolau.
After the resignation had been ac
cepted, which was almost Immediately
upon Its receipt, Rathburn proceeded,
so It is Bald, to still olllclute as a ma
gistrate. Five Chinese were arrested
on charges of having entered the room
of a Japanese woman and beaten her
and also robbed her of some of her
possessions. The Japanese were very
Indignant over the outrage and they
Insisted upon the prosecution of the
The outfit was taken before "Judge"
Rathuurn who, after hearing some evi
dence proceeded to dlschar -e tho entire
lot. This disposition of the case made
the Japanese very angry and they had
the matter brought to the attention of
the authorities here. When the fact
that Rathburn had sat as Judge was
learned Jt was immediately decided that
the Chinese could properly be prose
cuted a"aln. S, P. Chllllngworth was
consulted by the Japanese about the
matter. He named a certain fee to
take the case and have It re-opencd.
The Japanese held several meetings for
the purpose of raising the fee but for
some reason, the matter ended In a dis
agreement and finally, Mr. Chilling
worth decided to have nothing further
to do with the case. The Japanese have
also dropped the matter.
In the meanwhile, "Judge" Rathburn
is probably pursuing the even tenor of
his way, confident that the justice
which was dispensed by him during his
term of olllce and also during the
"Transition Period" after his reslgna
Hon was good and Just. Evidently
Rathburn seems to hold that the sue
cessor does not follow the resigning
