In future when C. A. Grote the Union

he will probably prefer to do so with

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

Oliane became as complicated as the
Constitution and the Flag muddle and

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

had taken a nail flle, and coolly cut

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,

has been prevailing would not affect
them.except to perhaps cause them to
drift to the southward. The Twilight

There was a spirited controversy for
over an hour this morning in the First
circuit uourt, over the transition peri
6d cases, and the clash of authority
between the federal and Territorial
courts. 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
"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

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

such a vessel. Both he as the master,
and Mr. Macfarlane as the owner, are

W. F. C. 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." A KAMAAINA GONE.
