KNOW THEIR GUILT
E. H. Paris was fined $25 and costs
by Judge Andrade in district court
this morning, for violating the auto
speed ordinance. He was represent
ed by Attorney Douthltt, but even that
learned counsel's eloquence, proved
, vain. An appeal was noted and tho
case will go to the circuit court, and
If lost there Douthltt Is likely to take
it to tho supreme court.
An alibi was the first line of de
fense, but Officer Scully, the expert
speeding auto spotter, was once 'more
sustained by tho judgment of His
Honor. Scully has not yet lost a case
in district court.
Those who pleaded guilty and got
off with the mere $25 and costs may
prove to. be fortunate in tho end. for
those who are fighting their cases
have also to pay counsel, and legal
talent amounts to more than the tine.
In the meanwhile there is a notice
able change in the maneuverings of
automobiles on the public highways.
A few days ago it was announced
that certain members of the Civic Fe
deration were taking up, on their own
acount, investigation of the conditions
prevailing in dance halls, at some of
which institutions young women and
girls are led to indiscretions too often
resulting in outright violations of
Today there is panic among cer
tain places where dances are regularly
held, and all for the reason that a
conversation between two Civic Feds
was overheard by a person who told a
woman, who told another person in
terested in a dance hall. This con
versation had to do with the fact that
tonight is the night when certain
members of the Civio. Federation more
or less disguised, a la Dr. Parkhurst,
are to make their rounds of some of
the dancing establishments.
Tho original notice of the Civic Fed's
intention was sweeping in that it
seemed to include all places where
there are nightly dances, and there
have been several peoplo within tho
lasfday or two expressing what seems
to be indignation. There are respect
able places as well as places otherwise
and the respectable places do not like

A police court psychologist this
morning observed to a representative
of the press than ho thoroughly be
lieves many of tho speeding offenders
are convinced that they do not ex
ceed tho speed limits, which halluci
nation leads them to fight their casejj.
He contends that they get a warped
idea of speed through the very fascin
ation of motion, and he has observed
that drivers frequently underrate
their speed. He was riding up Nuu
anu with a chauffeur the other day
and was watching the spedometer. Ho
placed his foot so as to hide the face
of the spedometer and then asked th:
chauffeur at what rate of speed he
judged he was driving. "About twen
ty miles an hour," replied tho driver.
The other removed his foot so that
the chauffeur could see the indicator.

The above cablegram received by

by the Legislature, there is consider

Much of the, business was initiated
by land-seekers before a halt was
tacitly called on operations.
The real reason why Governor
Frear has been considering a resigna
tion Is said to be that he is disposed
to regard himself as a Roosevelt ap
pointee whom Taft may not want.
Frear jvaa appointed and confirmed
during Roosevelt's term, for, tho usual
statutory term as governor of Ha
waii. But in view of a Presidential
disregard of his advice about an ap
pointment, Frear is stated to havo
concluded that he had better quit and
lot Taft mako a selection of his own.

might bo entitled to an original ap
