D. W. Stevens, of Waihlngton, D,
tsC., is staying at the Hawaiian Hotel.
He is a gentleman of long dlplomatla

To a Ilullctln reporter Mr. Stevens
said today that he was not here now
to investigate the conditions or Ja
panese labor'ln the Islands. His du

what and he came hero for rest and
change of scene.
"This. li not 'the first time 1 havo
hten here. It Is my fourth visit to Ho
nolulu, having called on former occa
sions coming from both San Francisco
nnd Japan. Once the steamer stayed
outside the harbor twenty-four hours.
That was before the channel was deep

Mr. Stevens was asked It he could
(ay what was the disposition of Japan
now ictsarcllng labor emigration to Ha
waii. He replied In effect that Japanese
emigration to the United States ha1
been checked somo months ago on ac
count of the agitation that had sprung
up against It on the Pacific Coast. The '
Government of Japan had Issued a re-1
script Slopping emigration 01 muorers
to. the States for the time being.
"Yes," Mr. Stevens assented to a sug
gestion; "It was In the nature of n
friendly act toward the United SUns
"There Is an Impression," he went
on, "that Japan is ovorcrowdel with
population, that the cc.m-.try cannot
produce enough food for Its Inhabi
tants. This Is a great mistake. It Is
true, perhaps, of tho valleys inu the
lower foothills, where the agrlcul'iiral
conditions are comparatively easy. Yet
thero Is still extensive territory unde

effect on the natives. There were tcu
many funerals to suit lilm. Now that

rious leaders of the Independent party
with the Idea ot getting him to abandon
his purpose. He feels quite sure ot his
election to a seat In the Senate. No
one denies that he Is a strong man and
he Is working with all the more vim

wrong to avenge.

LARSEN'S DOOMED ANIMAL
RESTORED TO USEFULNESS
Now Working Under Bond and Giving
the Lawyers an Interesting Can-
troversy to Wrangle Over
in the Courts,
Judge Lyle A. Dickey, In the civil
brunch of the Honolulu District Court,
yesterday gave Judgment In the curious
horse replevin case of lleekmann s.
I-ursen. It was In favor nf iil.ilntltr fur
the how or Its value, placed ut $175,
and costs. I-arsen uppeuled to the Clr-
cult Court and Is working the horse In
n Union Express Co.'s wagon under a
bond of $350.
It Is a case with amusing features.
William Larsen owned the horse. A
1 while ago the horse took sick, and I-ir-
sen thinking It had glanders turned' It
over to Ed. Wagner, Knllhl, to be
worked Into commercial value through
the bone mill. At flrsi the owner wait
going to kill tne animal, but hU
fondnesslor the faithful creature stay
ed his hand.
Wagner did not bellove the horse had
glanders nnd proved his diagnosis cor
rect by curing Its uTstcmper. Then
he sold the animal to J. C. Ileckman, a
buck driver. The horse was taken to
the Club Stables and, there being no
stall room for It, turned Into the cor
ral. Ureaklng out from there the aul
mul mado straight for Its old master's
stubles. Larsen could hardly believe
his eyes, but rejoiced greatly nt gcttlns
TTack tho dutiful quadruped.
Ills icjoclug wus shortlived. Retimes
came Ueckman, who had paid $100 for
the horse, and took It away. He g.wo
a bond pending the proving of prop
erty In the courts. Next move was
Lnrsen'8, It was to attach the horse
under a counter bond. The suit of re
plevin brought by Ueckman, ' which
was decided as already stated, brought
the controversy to its present stage.
W. A. Henshall pleudeii lleckman's
case, and Arthur Wilder that of Lar
son, In the DIstrlcTXourt.
