Author of the Famous Kill and Bum
Order Is Summarily Retired From
the Army.
WASHINGTON, July 16. In as exe
cutive order Issued today President
Roosevelt directs that General Jacob
II. Smith be summarily retired from
the active list of the army, as a resui:
of his having directed Major Waller of
the Marino Corps to "kill and burn"
in Samar.
General Smith, who earned the sob
riquet of "Hell-roaring Jake." Is en
loute 10 the United States on a Govern
ment transport &nd will not know un
til he lands in San Francisco that ho
had met the fate with which Prtsldent
Roosevelt threatened General Miles.
The President has power to retire
any officer between the ages of 02 and
SI years, but the power Is seldom oxer-,
clsed. The announcement of his deci
sion In the Smith case caused a decid
ed sensation and surprise, today.
Tho court-martial of General Smith
recommended that he be reprimanded
by the. reviewing authority, in this
case the President.
In a political sense the retirement of
General Smith Is regarded here as an
astute move for the administration.

the first time as an oil burner.
The Mariposa went ahead of tho
Welch on the start but the Instant the
bark cleared the Golden Gate, she
struck a splendid breeze that filled her
sails and bowled her along at steam
ship time. In fact, the bark n'ot only
overtook the Mariposa, but passd her,
greatly to the delight of Captain Drew
and those aboard with him. I
Tho rest of the trip was uneventful. !
The Welch was rather light, having
about 650 tons of feed and general cargo
for this port.
She brought three passengers, Miss
Marshall Kelser, of Washington, D. C.
J. H. Ramboy and M. J. McLean. Miss
Keiser comes to accept a position In trie
government service. Mr. McLean Is a
former resident of Honolulu while Mr.

ber of years. He Is visiting Honolulu

Judge Gear, Attorney Davis nrtd Dr.
Wnyson Met With Her Whn Her
Attorney Fitch Was 111.
Col. Tom Fitch this morning made
another elfort to reopen the Rebecca
1'aneo spendthrift trujt case, filing In
the Supreme Court an affidavit in
which sensational statements are made
as to the reasons why Becky Bishop
signed the trust deed to Dr. Wayson,
Just after she was declared free from
the trust by Judge Gear. It was or
account of this deed, made immediate
ly on regaining her freedom, that the
Supreme Court largely based its deci
sion reversing Gear In the matter. The
Supreme justices said that the deed
itself, the first act ot Becky after lie"
release, showed that she was not com
petent to manage her own affairs, and
a decision was handed down re-establishing
the trust with J. AMagoon as
The affidavit filed this morning con
tains the sworn statement of Rebecca
Panee that Judge Gear was present in
the office of Attorney., George A. Davis
when the deed u'as signed, and that R
was his presence and fanguuge that
persuaded her that It was to her in
terest to sign the document. She was
Imposed upjn by being induced to sign
a deed essentially different' from the
one she thought she was signing, says
Becky. The affidavit Is In part as fol
lows: That after her discharge by the First
Circuit Court from the spendthrift
guardianship heroin, she was desirous
nr n..Svln7 her nrnnertv In trust so I
that the lots on Maunakea street now
producing, clear of taxes, a rental of
One Hundred dol.ars a month, arJ so
leased as to produce a rental of One
hundred and twenty-five dollars a
month after 1903. could never be sold
or mortgaged durlngihe lifetime of
deponent either by deponent herself
or any trustee, and so that the net in
come thereof could bo enjoyed during
her lifetime, and after her death to go
to such person or persons as she mlsjht
designate by will.
Deponent was further desirous that
enough of the notes and mortgages
belonging to her should be collected 'or
sold at not less than par, to purchase
and furnish a home for deponent, and
that the balance of her property, after
paying her JiTst -debts, should be sold
or collected and Invested and re-Invested
by such trustee, who should pay
deponent the lncoms thereof during
her lifetime and reserve the principal
to be disposed of by will the same as
the Maunakea street lots.
Deponent says that her attorney, Mr.
Thomas Fitch, prepared a draft of a
trust deed embodying the foregoing
points and providing a lump sum of
One hundred dollars as compensation
to such trustee, and five per cent com
mission on collections, and requiring
such trustee to give bonds in the sum
of Five thousand dollars.
Deponent says that she consented
that Dr. James T. Wnyson should act
as such trustee, and that after exam
ining said draft of said trust deed Dr.
James T. Wayson agreed to act as
trustee and provide the bonds requir
ed, as evidenced by a letter from Dr.
Wayson to deponent, the original o"
which Is annexed hereto marked Ex
hibit "A."
Deponent says that a day or two af
terwards and after deponent's dis
charge as a spendthrift and while Mr.
Fitch had such draft of said trust deed
for engrossment, he was taken 111 and
confined to his bed at the Moana Ho
tel for several days with rheumatic
gout. Deponent says that while Mr.
Fitch was 111 and on the 25th day of
February, 1902, she received a note
from Dr. Wayson, the original ot
which Is annexed hereto, marked Ex
hibit "B." Deponent says that in com
pliance with the request of said note
she went to the office ot Mr. George A.
Davis and found there Dr. Wayson,
Judge George D. Gear and Mr. George
A. Davis. Deponent says that she has
since been informed that the presence
of Judge Gear at that time and place
was accidental, but at the time she be
lieved and was, from all the circum
stances and from the statements of
Dr. Wnyson and from the language of
Dr. Wayson's note (Exhibit "B,") Jus
tified In believing that Judge Gear was
thero to advise deponent as .to her In
terests and duties in the premises. De
ponent says that she was urged to sign
and acknowledge at once a trust deed,
a duplicate original of which is annex
ed hereto marked Exhibit "C." De
ponent says that she objected at the
time to signing it without first con
sulting her attorney Mr. Fitch, but
she was Informed then and there by
those present that Mr, Fitch was con
lined to his bed -and unable to be' pres
ent, that the' trust deed presented to
her for signature was the same aj the
one he had prepared, and that her in
terests required that she sign and ac
knowledge It at once.
Deponent says, believing their state
ments and' having confidence and talth
in Dr. Waysbn, and believing from the
presenco and languago of Judge Gear
that it was to her Interests to execute
the deed, she did so.
Deponent further says that on the
27th of February, 1902, Mr. Fitch hav
ing that morning been ablo to come
down to his office, she went there and
Informed him of what had been done
and gave him the duplicate original
(Exhibit "C"). That he then Informed
her that the deed she had executed
was essentially different from the one
that he had prepared ; that It gave to

The first Territorial Agricultural

The exhibits camo In briskly during

bles were well filled with samples of
fruits from below and nbovo the earth,

foods and perfumes prepared from Ha
waiian products formed side Issues to
the main display. A cage of lively ca
naries bred on the islands nnd some
varieties of the Australian staghorn
fern were also brought In. As one ex
hibitor remarked, "all the products of
Held and forest were there, except oko
lehao." Among the special displays, that at
tracting the chief notice, Is tho banked
callndttims sent In by S. M. Damon
from Moaualua. Every variety of tho
graceful heart-shaped leaves seems to
be included in the exhibit which occu
pies the center of the room, and every
shade of crimson to palest pink blends
with the delicate green ot tho leaves.
