The expert who has been doing the records of the Supreme Court for the purpose of discrediting Judge Little exposed the nnimus of his labors by incorporating m his list of reversals, charged to the Ililo Judge, a case that was taken up from a Maui Court. That this same correspondent to the Adver tiser was not a chronicler of facts, but a mere ignoble defamer, it is only necessary to tell the facts in the case of lfugihara, sent back for re-sentence. This case was scheduled by the Advertiser weathercock as a rever sal. It was nothing of the sort. I'Ugihnra was sentenced by the Hilo Court. The appeal was under advisement so long by the Supreme Court hat the date of execution passed before the matter was de termined. It was then obviously necessary to all except the weather cock, that the Hilo Court suffered no reflection upon its learning or dignity in having to perform so sad a duty twice. It is also obvious to those who care to follow the un certain and devious ways of cases at law, that with the personnel of the upper court as it is now consti tuted, reversals will be visited upon Hilo at all times unless a statute specifically forbidding the same is pointed out by counsel. Its all a part of the same game. P. O, SOX 97 The Chinese of this city will publish a weekly paper called the WORLD NEWS. The object of the journal is to spread wisdom, practical knowledge and the news of the day among the Chinese people. In China there are few newspapers, which is largely the reason why the Chinese people arc so far behind the times compared with Eu ropeans and Americans. For this reason the leading Chinese merchants of the Hawaiian Islands have formed a company for the publi cation of a Chinese paper at Hilo. Mr. H. Jackson, a gentleman of superior talents and education has beeen employed as editor. He has had seven year's editorial experience at Honolulu. The offices of the newspaper arc on Front Street, Bow Wong hall. Advertisers will communicate with cither W. K. Akaua or Hop Warn Co. The officers of the new publishing company arc W. K. Akaua, president; H.Jackson, editor; Latt On, reporter; L. Ah Hip, Sam Fook, Young Got, Hop Warn, and-Wo Hop Kec, directors. A POETIC ERUPTION. One of the mysterious proposi tions which just now confronts the editor of the Tkiuuni; is the abnor mal flood of poetry seeking admis sion to the columns of this journal. During a two year's residence in these Islands, which have been spent in desultory newspaper work, it has not been our good fortune .to encounter much poetry. Back in the northern counties of Missouri and in the arid stretches of Cen tral Washington, poetry used to come into the country newspaper offices in bundles as big a beer keg. Here in Hawaii where the divine afflatus needs no conjuring beyond that afforded by the wimpling waves and the limpid landscape, the muse has sadly neglected its graft. Hut lately the nine sisters have been getting in their work. The Trihuni? now receives from one to two efforts each week. They are all splendid effusions. They are withheld, however, from the gaze of common mortals until an acccumulation of .songs accumu lates in such dimensions as will justify the publication of the whole wad between two lids. Meanwhile let the poetic mills continue to grind. There is poetry in every heart. It is like the gold in the ruby sands of the Pacific shores. The only trouble is to find a meth od of extraction. There is also good alimentation for the poet of Hawaii. There is little excuse in the Paradise of the Pacific for bad poetry. If any is born from seeth ing hearts, surcharged with metrical emotion, why should it not be per fect? Why this rot that weekly pours into the Tkihunk sanctum, when the environment of our pre sumably long haired anonymous but soulful correspondents, is an eternal, vernal arcadian dream ? Tmc visiting United States Sena tors who will come to investigate Hawaiian conditions will arrive in Honolulu probably on the 2nd day of September. They should be given seats of honor at the Terri torial Convention. It would not be amiss, either, to ask them to de scribe the sort of delegate they would like to have go to Washing ton. Tin? idiot in Honolulu who wanted to know what "Stacker meant by Little" should address his queries to a more intelligent man and resign from the Republi can Committee at once. THE RIGHT OF COUNSEL. Tin; case against the Japanese accused of murder was continued three days this week to allow the attorneys for the defense an oppor tunity to consult with their clients. The court room was the only place in Ililo where the conference could be held.Jso beginning Wednesday afternoon the accused and their de fenders held audience, with police men guarding both exits. It has yet to be proved or shown what the Territory, or the People, rather, who arc arrayed against these Japanese, would have lost, had the Sheriff and the Courts of this District allowed the accused right of counsel from the moment they were taken in custody. The prisoners may be guilty. They may be the worst thugs that were ever tolerated in a civil community. Yet no one can give a valid reason why they should not have had the advice of legal counsel from the moment their lives and liberty were in jeopardy. SinjuiPif Andrkws has no more right to withhold the records of the Coroner's jury from the pub lic than he has to execute a man who is not under sentence of capital punishment by a competent court. Governor Doi.k will soon issue a proclamation making three pre cincts out of the Second precinct in the Hilo District. Separate voting places will be cstablashed at Olaa and Waiakea. . .j .-. ---.' mwMJSra ki:sult OF ruiMAitu:s. District Convention Meets Todny to Nnnio Caiullilates.

If methods involved in this case so far, are proper and legal, there is 110 reason why the Sheriff should not hang the whole crowd tomor row at sunrise. He could plead that it was done with the sanction of the Herald and done to avoid the defeat of justice. According to the Herald, the culprit who nominated G. F. Af fonso should be read out of the Republican party. Whoever he was the Lord only knows, and the only thing to do now is to put Sheriff Andrews on his track. 1 1' Tin; burst of speed shown in the matter of improving Waianue uue street could only be kept up until it had done a few things to poor neglected King street, how the Ililo public would swell up with thankfulness.
