Grote the Union street mllor tries to catch a burglar, he will probably prefer to do so with .company for there will then be a chance of capturing the thief. For about ten minutes, at an early hour this morning, he chased a Chinese 'burglar from one side of the tailor es tablishment to the other until the Oliane became as complicated as the Constitution and the Flag muddle and (Jrote did not know whether he was fAllowlng the Chinese or the Chinese v.as following him. Of one thing both are certain; there was no "Transition Period," for they were constantly on the move. The tailor shop of Grote and Cramer H on Union street, Mr. Grote and fam ily residing In a cottage in. the rear About 5:16 o'clock this morning, Mr. Giote was aroused by hearing fall, what was evidently some broken glass. He surmised at once, that the noise came from the new building, of the Catholic school. He went out on his front porch and happening to glance Into his shop in a line with the electric lights which had been left burning, discovered the head of a Chinese who was evidently about to leave the prem ises. Mr. Grote grabbed hold of a heavy fence picket and ran to the window "with the Intention of lambasting th? robber. The Chinese saw him coming and ran a.way from the window. The building Is liullt triangular In shape and while Grote effectively guarded exit by the side window the Chinese had a chance to get out through a rear door. Grote saw that the Chinese would escape by this door so he rush ed around to that side. The Chinese uaw him coming and ran back to the window. Grote ran to the window and the Chinese ran over to the door. Both were In tine condition and seem ed . to be evenly matched as sprinters. Grote became a little winded however by shouting for help. Finally strategy came to the aid of the Chinese for the celestial turned off the lights In the store and the pursuer could not keep track of him. However Grote check mated this work by a better bit of strategy for he took up a position at the corner of the building, which com manded both the door and window. It looked as If-the Chinese was as effect ually bottled as Admiral Schley bot tled the Spanish fleet at Santiago but Mr. Grote forgot one other avenue of scape. When assistance finally arrived and a search of the store was made there '.no robber. A silver nail file was the only clue left. It seems the Chinese, finding himself outwitted temporarily, had taken a nail flle, and coolly cut away the putty which held the large display window pane In place, removed the pane, stepped outside onto the street and escaped. Nothing was tak en by the thief. Mr. Grote Is positive that the rob ber was a Chinese who was familiar with the premises for this makes the third time the place has been entered. Once before $10 In cash and about $20 In clothing was secured and on an other occuslon about $23 in clothing Vas taken. The police were notified. THE WEATHER. Weather Bureau, Punahou, 1 p. m.

Box 447 There was an unusually high wind blowing last night and unless some of the various Island schooners got into shelter, several of them may have been piled onto some or the various reefs. Yesterday morning the schooner Con cord was seen at Maalaea Bay heading for the little bay just north or Kinau point, the evident Intention of Captain Sam Mana being to get a safe anchor age from the strong northeast wind that was prevailing. He had his main sail and flying jib fast and was pro ceeding under only a reefed foresail and foretopmast staysail. The schooner Kalulanl was seen yes terday off Koko Head. She was expe tienclng the heavy wind too and had her flying Jib fast and a reef in her mainsail. The weather at that time was not nearly so bad as last night. She probably made some of the Koo- lau ports by that time and there is a 1 osslbillty that she may , have been driven ashore as the wind was exceed ingly strong. No advices of this char acter have been received however ana as her captain Is an experienced navi gator In these waters It is very likely that the vessel Is all right. On Kauai are the schooners Twt Merht. Alice Kimball and Ka Mol. The Kimball and Ka Mol were at Koloa, discharging. The northeast wind which has been prevailing would not affect them.except to perhaps cause them to drift to the southward. The Twilight was at Hanalel when the Hall left Na wlllwili Saturday.

While leaving Hana Friday evening, the steamer Claudlne fouled the schooner H. C. Wright, and the after- t'use deck of the steamer was damag ed with the other vessel s Jib boom. The weather was so rough at Hana that the Claudlne had to seek safer si ehorage at Nahlktl. SETTLE LAND SUIT SUPREME COURT ASKED TO DE CLARE LAW. T. R.

Judges Gear and Humphreys were on the bench, the former presid ing, and Attorney General Dole repre sented his department. The Judge and the lawyer both showed some heat during the argument, and Attorney George A. Davis also injected warmth, ending by quoting the governor as on the side represented by the circuit court and the United States District Court, as opposed to that represented by the Territorial Supreme Court and the Attorney General. Dole opened with a motion to con tinue the transition period cases for the term, basing his motion upon the statements In a lengthy affidavit, some' portions of which the court disapprov ed. The motion, first put In the ctese of George Wade, was overruled, and the court took the same action In eaph of the other cases. Dole got a heavy call down when he stated that he was holding the prisoners both ways, and ccnvlcted and as not convicted but In dicted, but he stuck to the proposition, and when told that If he believed the Indictments to be no good, it was his duty to discharge the prisoners, as the convictions had been declared Invalid, hf stated that It wns his duty to map out his own policy. "The attorney general may choose hlr own course." responded Gear, "but the court has u light to say what it believes to be his duty In the matter." Judge Gear made an Inquiry of the attorney general as to which view of the question he proceeded under, whether he held the prisoners under the old mittlmusses, on their former convictions, or on new indictments. "The attorney general Is pulling all ropes," said Dole, " to hold these men until the matters at Issue are decided." "The attorney general will not be al lowed to pull all ropes," said Judge Gear. "These men cannot be In jail under both propositions, directly con trary to each other, and they won't be If this court Is asked to act In their behalf." "There Is an appeal from your hon or," said the attorney general. It was here that the court announ ced what it considered to be the duty of the attorney general, and Dole stat ed that he was bound to choose his own policy, as the head of a depart ment of government that was Indepen dent, like the court. It was announced by the depart ment during the last term of this court," said the Judge, "that the de partment intended to follow the United States District Court in these matters. This court was very glad to hear that such was the case, as it Is of the opin ion that that is the only right way to do." I feel hound to say that this is the ilrst time that I have heard that any member ot the attorney general s de partment has ever made such a state ment,", said Dole. "Mr. Cathcart In forms me that lie has never said it. The attorney general's department proposes to follow the Supreme court of the Territory. It's decisions are the low of the territory until they are re versed by the Supreme Court of tho United States." "Suppose they are reversed by the United States District Court?" Djile contended that that court was not an appellate court of the circuit court, and he announced again his po licy of folding the Territorial Su preme Court. George A. Davis, who made the an nouncement of the policy of following Ksttes court in the transition cases, declared that he had done it on the highest authority. Davis was tempor ary assistant attorney general In th George Wade case, while Dole was away. "If such a statement was ever made ly anyone connected with this depart ment," said Dole, "It was during my r.bsence. and It Is now repudiated "I made It after consultation with the highest authority In the territory,' s,nld Davis. "Repudiated or not. It stands as the statement of the depart ment. It came from the governor him belt." The end of the discussion was that ail the transition period cases were set for Immediate trial. In spite of Dole's efforts to get their, postponed until Osaki Manktchl Is heard at Washing ton. The affidavit filed by Dole contains a history of the convictions, prior to June 14, 1900; of the release on habeas orpus by Gear on the grounds that the trials were illegal; me successiui anneal to the Supreme Court, which reversed Gear, and then the applica tlon to Judge Estee, who took Gear's view of the matter and ordered the rrlsoners released, and Anally the ap peal to the Supreme Court from Es tet's ruling. The affidavit continued "That, notwithstanding the decisions of the Sunreme Court of the Republic of Hawaii and of the Supreme Court of the Territory of Hawaii above refered to and the pendenoy of said appeal of Osaki Manklchl herore the supreme Court of the United States, the said Second Judge of said Circuit Court at a recent term thereof, as the afllant Is credibly informed and believes, Instruct ed a Grand Jury to consider the evl dence proving or tending to prove that the defendants above named had com mitted felonies of which they had al ready been convicted as aforesaid, and if such evidence should be sufficient, to find and return Indictments against them; Hint Indictments for said felonies were found against the above named defendants which Indictments are now (ending in this court, as appears' from the records of tills court. "That the affiant herein Is credibly In formed and believes that said Second Judge has announced his intention to have said cases tried during the pres ent term of his said court; that such trials will be in disregard of and con trary to the decisions aforesaid of the Supreme Court of the Territory having appellate Jurisdiction over said Second Judge, and binding upon him as the (Continued on page live.) The work of Installing the fire and police alarm system Is going rapidly ahead and will be completed within schedule time, although there have been some delays with the Iron work which s being manufactured locally. The po lice alarm boxes and the operator's desk are expected to arrive here in about firteen days from now, having been shipped direct and complete from the Gamewell Company In Chicago. The desk Is quite an elaborate affair, about four feet wide and standing about six feet high. This is the Indi cator, at which an operator Is constant ly seated, who records the calls turned n from the various beats and locates the various alarms rung in by citizens. Tlie fire alarm arrangement Is neces sarily less complex, no regular reports Deing turned in rrom patrols as with the police. The board of the Indicator will however show immediately which alarms has been rung in and the im mediate locality of the fire. Co-operation with the nollce svstem will enable the policeman on that beat to be promptly notified of the fire in his district it he has not already dis covered It, and a representative ot law and order can be promptly on the spot to handle the crowd and give the neces sary assistance. While the two systems are comnlete and distinct in their working, the instal lation will nrobably be made simulta neously, a grand test being made before the systems are turned over to the flre commissioners and the police depart ment. According to the Hitrh Sheriff's belief before the system was approved by the legislature nnu me money appropriated, the installation will result in the dis banding of a number of the mounted patrol while the walking force will pos sibly be strenentened. This may not be round necessary immediately but the new alarms will, before the year is out materially heln to nav for themselves. in reducing the .pay rolls of the police iorce uesiues adding a sense or greater security to people In the outlying dis tricts.

SUR BOARD The Federal Inspectors of Hulls and Boilers were occupied this morning with hearing the evidence In the case of the collision of the Malolo and John A. Cummins which occurred some time ago. off one of the buoys inside the harbor. The evidence of the captain, mate and chief engineer on each vessel was taken. Their statements did not vary much rrom the accounts which were related at the time of the accident regarding the cause of the collision. One fact was developed beyond any doubt and that was that Captain Mokl the master of the Malolo, did not have the neces sary license to permit him to command such a vessel. Both he as the master, and Mr. Macfarlane as the owner, are subject to lines but if any steps are taken to levy the fines. It will not be the inspectors who will take them, as that matter lies within the province of the Collector and United States at torney. The Inspectors will leave on th"? Ki nau tomorrow for Hllo where they will conduct the Inspection of vessels and examination of sea faring men In that port. The ivpectors will return next Saturday. They will probably render their verdict in the collision case afrv their return. They will make a subsequent trip to Kahulul during this month. TRIGTaT AGAIN RKHEARINO OR AN OLD SHOOT ING AFFAIR.

Hasson. electrical Inspector, is preparing a general map or diagram of electrlo wires throughout the cli;, for use In reforming the systems of th government and private wire. Iluuvi.- has been making some general investi gations and has found that there Is a. great deal to be done In the way bC changing wires that are not proiierly strung. Though it will take sometime, the wires will all eventually be chang ed where It is necessary. "The people must realise that there In more or less hazsard all the time," nald. Hanson, "while wires are strung as they are in Honolulu and that in stormy weather the danger Is Increased. The trees are one of the main soun-e of trouble, as by coming In contact with wires they make short circuits. "That there are not more serious ac cidents is due largely to the fact that people seldom stand on a solid damp footing when they use the Instrument. For Instance in telephoning one usually stands on a dry floor and If there la something wrong a slight shock may be all the result. The same current might. If the one receiving It stood on damp ground, or was In contact with any conductor . iat passed the current on, produce fatal results. "I find there is need for much re formation In our wiring system but of course the charges cannot be made all at once. We cannot Interrupt either the telephone or light service, but must have things fixed up the best way possi ble without interrupting them. Th matter of expense is also to be consider ed. "If we had higher poles, say 60 feet, much of the danger and difficulty would be avoided, as then the wires would be above the trees. Hut such poles would, cost a great deal of money. "A plan we have thought of is that of separating the telephone and electric light wires absolutely, by having them on different Bides of the streets. For instance on King street we might have telephone wires mauka and electrlo light wires makai. On Ilotrl street, next above, we might reverse this order. Then the block between could receive all telephone wires from Beretanla and lights from King. There would be nt wires crossing the streets at all. A good deal of work has already been done la the wuy of repairing and we shall keep it up. Any cases riillnrl to our atten tion will be promptly looked after." Hasson nas onened an office In the Walklkl end of the Capitol building, facing King street. He is on hand here alLjuorning and ready to consult with anyone who wantcs advice as to placing of wires. "Work that is being don& now," he said "and all work henceforth will be done according to the best rules. Our principal task however is to reform the systems that have been so con fused."
