KIK - MEJHI Captain Pond's Evidence Upon Pearl Harbor Lands. MR. KINNEY'S INSERTIONS ARE RULED IRRELEVANT 11 V Judge Estte Refuses to Admit Inquiry on Speculative Lines Effects of. Annexation ;Are Also Mentioned. On the resumption from Friday of the rondemnation suit against the Bishop Kstata in the United Slates District Court this morning, Captain Pond, U. 8. N., again went on the wltnoss-Btaud for cross-examination by Mr. Kinney. lie was quizzed at first regarding his Judgment on the quality of tho soil upon Ford's Island. Then tlio witness was asked about tho pro jected dredging of the cntranco to Pearl Harbor. Mr. Dunne objected and the Court sustained the objection on the ground that tho evidence was Immaterial. Mr. Dunne said the question for the Jury was the market Value of the land at the beginning of this action. Mr. Kinney claimed tho right to find out whether tho dredging was decided on, before or after tho 6th of July, vhen tho condemnation proceeding vera brought. Captain Pond said tho Navy Depart ment bad nothing to do with It. The work was planned by Army engineer. Jlo could not say if any copy of the dredging contract wan in Honolulu. The contractor was hero now. To the Court ho Bald Captain Henry wag one of tho dredging contractors. Mr. Kinney quoted a decision of tho Supreme Court of California to the ef fect that matters happening after tho beginning of an action might bo made part of a case. Mr. Dunne In reply quoted the Fed eral Supreme Court to mow a different rule for the present action. "This looks like making the United 8tatos Government pay for Its own Improve ments," the Federal attorney added. Mr. Kinney persisted that ho did not offer this evidence for the, purpose ob jected to at an. consideration snouia lip given to improvements projected on tho 6th of July. At that dato It was generally believed that the harbor would be opened, thus affecting land values. Judge Estee remarked that the Ilbhop Estate would then have to con tribute Its sharo to tho Improvement. Mr. Klnnoy admitted that the Jlsh op Estate could bo charged with spe cial benefits, but not with general ben efits. Judge Estee rejoined, "If you aro entitled to any sharo or tho Improve ment contemplated on tho 6th of July, tho nishop Estate must contribute Us share." Mr. Kinney said tho Court's remarks referred to Improvements on tho prop erty to be condemned. But the open' ing of that bar might not involve tne taking of Bishop Estate's land. They did not know until tho bill was filed that their land was going to bo taken. What they wished to show was that slnco annexation cvon (hero was a general anticpatlon all along the line tnat I'earl Harbor lands would be en' hanced In value by Federal operations, At this the Court allowed the oucu tions, but the next and many mora Interrogations were blocked. Ths Urst one was, "I)o you know as a mat ter of fact If bids were called for be fore July 61 Judge Estee said: "I think Mr. Dunne Is right about tnat. I don't think you havo a right to go over tho field of Inquiry and expectation." When Mr. Kinney contended for tho right to ask questions rotative to facts contained In tho pleaulngs, such as whether or not tho Navy Department brought tho condemnation proceed ings, tho Court said: "I do not suppose tho witness can bind the United States. It Is imma terial who condemns the land." Objection was sutalned to a ques tion as to futuro Intentions of the Wur Department, Mr. Klnnoy noting ex ceptions to tho Court's ruling, as In every other Instance Captain Pond admitted attesting to tliu complaint with Its valuation of all I'earl Harbor lands condemned at $16,800. i. .
