MANY OP THObE WHO LEFT HERE ON THE ISLEWORTH FOR THEIR
NATIVE ISLANDS HAVE SENT FOR THEIR CHURCH LETTERS OF
"""DISMISSION FROM KAWAIAHAO CHUHCH IN ORDER TO UNITE
WITH THE CHURCH IN THE ISLAND OF ONOTO.
' rA considerable number of 'the Gilbert
Islanders who left here by the steam
ship Isleworth for the homes in their
native lsland3 which they had not seen
for more than twenty years, have sent
to Rev. II. II. Parker of Kawalahao
Church for their church letters. They
want to be dismissed from this old mis
sionary church here, in order to unite
with the church in the Island of Ono
to. This island is one of the southern
most of the Gilbert group, and more of
tho Gllbertese who lived so long in Ha
waii were from this Island than from
any other of the group.
The fact of their sending for their
church letters is taken as a sign that
they are satisfied, and expect to spend
the remainder of their days there.

SUPREME, COURT CLOSES ITS YEARS' BUSINESS AVITH A DECISION
IN THE CASE OP EDWIN A'lA'IAN RICHARDSON, THE FORMER

MENT OP GOA'ERNMENT FUNDS.
The Supreme Court sat this morning
for a brief spell and handed down its
decision in the case of Edward Vivian
Richardson charged with embezzle
ment while employed as clerk of the
Honolulu AVater AVorks. The matter
at Issue was the exception to the over
ruling of a demurrer to the Indict
ment charging Richardson with em
bezzlement on the grounds (1) that It
charged 110 offence against the law.
2) that It was dupllcltous and (3) va

The syllabus of the court's decision

"In our opinion the defendant could
be charged by regulation or appoint
ment as well as by law with the safe
keeping .transfer or disbursement of
moneys. The cases cited by defense
are riot in conflict with this' view. In
none of the statutes construed In those
cases were the words "regulation" or
"appointment" used. In each of these
cases the question was whether the of
ficer Indicted was one who was charged
by law with the safe-keeping, etc., of
money. If, as we hold, an ofllcer may
be so charged by regulation or appoint
ment as well as by law, the present
case Is clearly distinguished from the
cases relied on by the defendant.
"Nor do we think that tho statute
which describes the duties of the sup
erintendent of water works would pre
vent the clerk of the wuter works from
being charged by regulation or ap
pointment with tile safe-keeping, trans
fer or disbursement of moneys. The
section referred to, C. L. Sec. 515, pro
vides for the appointment of the sup
erintendent of water works "whose
duty it shall be to keep the conduits
or pipes for the conveyance of water
in repair; collect all wuter rates from
ships and persons In Honolulu, or Its
vicinity, and perforin such other duties
In connection therewith" as the super
intendent of public works may pres
cribe. It does not follow that be
cause the superintendent of water
works Is to "collect" all water rates
from ships or persons In Honolulu or
its vicinity, the clerk ot the water
works could not be charged with the
'safe-keeping' transfer or disbursement
of money so collected for such purposes
or from such persons, not to mention
other money, even If he could not be
no charged, within the nmanliig of the
statute, with the duty to "collect" wa
ter rates by way of assisting the sup
erintendent of water works, the latter
being responsible for such collection.
"The exception Is overruled and the
case Is rumaudod to the circuit court
for further proceedings."

CONSIDERING ADA'ISABILITY OF
MAKING CABLE INQUIRIES.
Backers of Captain AVelsbarth the

best methods to pursue to ascertain
some Information regarding the move

within a day or so, u cablegram Is to

any trace of liim lias been found. The
only tiling which deters the Honolulu
backers of Welsbarth's expedition
from sending some sort of relief ex

is a man of such infinite resources that
difficulties which would lay the aver
age man prostrate, would make no dif
ference to him. Although the vessel
has undoubtedly run short of Provi

that, in all likelihood, he has gotten
