J. HUTCHINS NOT AD- ill VISABLE IN.GARTLEY'S OP1NI ON CONVERSATION MAY BE'LIM-' 1TED TO TEN MINUTES IN LIS NGTH. . 1 The directors of the Mutual Tele phone Company have hold a meeting at which the Gartley report, which tentatively recommends the automatic system, was discussed. Tho decision of the meeting was to cable to Piatt, the sales agent of the Automatic Tele phone Company for tho Pacltlc Coast, asking that he come to Honolulu as soon its possible. At the meeting the report was tak en up In all its branches. The most Important fact brought out was that the system for which C. J. Hutchihs was prepared to contract ls not that which is recommended by Gartley. Gartley believes that the two wire system, without tho use of the ground as a third conductor, is preferable, while tho system that Hutchins was making arrangements to use is for a three way circuit. In addition to this the system first proposed was to al low ten trunk lines for each unit of one hundred telephones. Tho direc tors do not believe tha this will give a satisfactory service. In case of n fire, or when steamers come in, the local telephones are used to 'such a degree that with only oiie lino for the use of ten telephones ,tha service would hardly be what is deft red here. A test was made last wsolc to find out the .average use of tho local tele phones. Statistics which were gather ed by Manager Hummer showed that in eleven hours tho operators han dled 34,000 calls. These calls were of EDITOR SHEBA RELEASED FROM HIS LONG SIEGE ON THE WITNESS STAND HE SHOWS THAT THE HIGHER WAGE ORGAN PUBLISH- - ED NOTHING TO DULL THE EFFECT OF INFLAMMATORY LAN GUAGE W. O. SMITH TESTIFf ES. Editor Sheba was released from the witness stand at 9:37. p'clock this morning, the fifth day of his examina tion in the conspiracy trial. Most ot the time lie was undergoing cross-examination at the hands of Air. Lightfoot for the defence. Mr. Klnhey for the prosecution .asked him In redirect examination this morn ing If the Nippu Jiji ever publshed anything advising the Japanese against violence. Lightfoot objected to the question as immaterial. Kinney ar gued that the laiiguugu of tho Higher Wage organ addressed to men mad dened by excitement might liavo a dif ferent meaning if addressed to a dis passionate throng. But when articles were published from which words had ben struck out thut were so strong that the editors did not dare to print them, yet which as published advised the people to "get rid of" and "exter minate'' those who opposed tho agita tion, and without one word or ex pression to Indicate that tho laugtiage did not mean the worst that lt im plied, tho prosecution had a right to show such lack ot innocent intention lu publishing language that on itit faro was inciting to violence. Lightfoot don led the statement that those men had murder lir their minds. Also he denied that tho writers Jot tho letters in evidence hud murder In then minds, "Wo received a letter advislijg tho murder of Sheba," was tho sensational admission Lightfoot then made! add ing, l'and we wrote a letter In reply to show that It was wrong to tlink of such a thing." ' Kinney demanded where was Iho evi dence of any letter against murder. Judgo Do Bolt ruled that tho pending 1 I course not evenly distributed and dur ing the early hours of the morning and In the evening tho number wJs small while in the afternoon and morning, the percentage ran up high. From this it is seen that people here use their telephones a great deal, pro bably twice as much as in most of tho cities of the mainland, which makes it more ditlicuit to i;tve a sat isfactory service. For this reason it is thought that ten trunk lines per hundred telephones will hardly be enough. Another matter which was discussed was the limiting of a single telephone call to a definite time, titter which the operator should break in, in case any one else wanted the line, and ask the parties to hang up and allow tho wait ing party his chance at the wire. It is proposed to limit a conversation to ten minutes, which is twice the length of time allowed ordinarily on the mainland. Tho directors of the company would like to know what stand the public wishes tak'-n on this subject. Until tho arrival of Mr. Piatt, and then till definite prices can be ob tained from him, and possibly till an arrangement can be made for the sale of the present switchboard, nothing will be decided in iegard to the in stallation of the automatic. The di rectors are striving to get the best people service for the public, which will still allow a reasonable Interest on the money invested. question sTiouia be answered. "The Nippu Jiji never published any thing advising the people against acts of violence," Sheba said and was Im mediately released by counsel on both sides. W. O. Smith, secretary of the Ha waiian Sugar Planters' Association, was next called. Asked it any of tho Higher Wage leaders among the de fendants had ever interviewed him he wild, amidst some objections raised anil overruled: "There were sonio communications on the subject of higher wages. Ma kino, Soga and one or two others came to see me early In January. Not to make demands " "I don't want to know about that," Kinney interrupted. "Were they re presenting the Higher Wage Associa tion?" ''They were' Mr. Smith replied. "Did Mr. Sheba interview you on higher wages," "Mr. Sheba and Mr. Kimura came to see me." iKlnney here released the witness and Lightfoot began to cross-examine him. Witness thought there woro onty three of the association leaders who interviewed him. Kinny objected to the lino of cross-examination as begun. Lightfoot said Kinney always ob jected to being compelled to show his hand. "Now I am compelled to show my hand," ho went on. "I want to prove by this witness that these men did not represont tho Higher Wage As sociation when they called on him," Mr. Smith being allowed to answer said that Maklno and tho two others spoko to him about the Interview with Sheba and Kimura. "Thoy wanted to j K. Ypkogawa .editor of the Maul Shinbun, was sent back to jail from the Commissioner's court this mornr lug, his examination on the charge of a repeated offence of sending indecent literature through the malls having ben postponed until two o'clock Thurs day afternoon. Commissioner George A. Davis llxed his ball at $2,500, informing him that an ordinary .Japanese bond would not go. It must have one surety who is a freeholder resident in the Territory. Sureties owning nothing but movablo property or money in bank, which could be picked up and taken away, would not do. Tho bond must be approved both by tho Commissioner and District Attorney Breekons. Mr. Davis says that the defendant will have all' his rights under the con stitution, but the rule of court regard ing ball will bo strictly enforced. DIPAUI0T DIUHllllOl I is a joker; BORROWS fit) FROM PRISONER WIFE NO. RECEPTION. FELLOW 'I HOLDS Tho bigamist sou of a Chicago mil lionaire has, even behind the bats, manifested a talent for finance and has done a fellow prisoner out of ten dollars, which ten dollars bo handed over to his second wife, or Wife No. 2. The prison authorities aro telling the, story of how Raymond Baker,, fctitenced last week to three years In jail,' did an unsuspecting fellow crim inal out of a ten-dollar gold piece and the suggestion is' mado that there should be some kind of regulation to bo enforced to discourage tho swin dling of one prisoner by another. A man behind the bars cannot be guilty of an irregularity in financial matters .technically speaking, so Bak er Is protected as far as the ten-dollar negotiation is concerned. Baker, of course, only borrowed tho ten from his fellow prisoner. But how will ho ever pay it back? Balw's intentions may bo good, but hs methods aro smooth. Wife No. 2 calls on tho prisoner three times a week, so Raker is not altogether deprived of society. Wife No. 2 seems devotpd to tho wayward gallant who must servo a sentence for Inordinate matrimony. Ralph S. Hosiner and J. T.
