Entrance on Union. ii MI Ah Cliong was arrested yesterday on the charge ot selling fish onihgtfttreets. His case came up for trial In the Po lice Court today but a continuance un til tomorrow was granted at tlie re quest of Attorney Chllllngworth. Judge Wilcox said that In granting the motion for a continuance that he did not see how he was going to fine a nan for selling good fresh fish on the streets. He knew of certain fisher, men at Watklkt -who were In-the haolt of selling fish to high officials of tho government and yet n,one of-these fel lows were ever arrested. A group ot attorneys stood In the hall after the adjournment of the Po lice Court and discussed the regulation of the Board ot Health by means of which everyone was prohibited from selling fish at any place other than tho fish market. They all agreed that this regulation of the Board of Health was a very bad one and that If it wero to bo tested would be thrown out with no hope of recovery. It is seldom that a man Is arrested on the charge ot peddling fish about the -streets but when .he Is, there always arises the question of'the right of tho Board of Health to make a regulation prohibiting such action.

Schaefer from Hamakua, Hawaii, the rainfall from March 1 to March 29 was, at Honokaa Mill, 48.75 Inches; at Kukulhaele, 40.92 Inches. 9 IS CHINAMAN MAKES THREE ATTEMPTS AT SUICIDE Jumped. Into Bay and Was Saved By Couple of Natives -Tried to Hang Himself at Police Station. An Insane Chinaman at the police station will very probably be sent .out tii the asylum thlr afternoon. Dr. Emerson has examined the man and has found that he is Insane beyond all shadow of a doubt. He will appear be fore Judge Wilcox this afternoon and submit bis findings.' The Chinaman, whoso name has not yet been ascertained on account of bis mental condition, was taken to tho po lice station yesterday afternoon by a couple of natives. The fellow was evidently set on mak ing away with himself for be was seen to Jump from the Irnigard wharf Into the bay at about 2:55 o'clock yesterday afternoon. He made no attempt to swim and went down Immediately. Two natives on the wharf saw the Chinaman Jump over and followed him. They succneded in saving the man and landed him safely on the wharf. There was a moment when the attention ot the natives was taken away from tho Chinaman and the fellow made another attempt to Jump In. When the Chinaman arrived at tho police station be showed the most vio lent disposition and attempted to break away from the police. On being taken below, he showed flgh,t,aud would not cease his efforts at escape until the strong hand ot a big pollco officer was placed on his shoulder. The Chinaman' wag placed In a cell and shcortly after that made an at tempt at suicide by using his clothes for a rope. He was prevented from do ing this and a little later on tried to hang himself by means ot his queue. This also was prevented. The fellow was In such a.dangerous state ot mind In the evening that ho was placed in a straight Jacket and handcuffed and a pollco officer kept watch over him throughout the night. -- --- -- to secure a release of mortgage held by C.

The reason why the receipts are so small Is that the weather on the day of the game-was very bad Indeed. ' . i !

REPUBLICANS MEAN TO FIQIiT TO LAST DITCH Attorneys to Submit Arguments Before Acting Governor Cooper This After- noon ( Matter To End in Courts. Every member ot tho Fourth Dis trict ot the Republican party Is ex pected to be present at a meeting to be held In the headquarters, Elite building, at 7 o'clock this evening. Matters of importance will be discussed and mem bes ot the sub-committees are especial ly requested to bo in their places; A fight Is on against the combined forces of the Home Rule and Democratic par tics and therefore Republicans arc ask ed to keep a steady eye on tho duty they owe to their party. The situation In politics today Is a degree advanced beyond what It was yesterday when Acting Governor Cooper decided to allow tho name of August Emlle Drelcr to appear on the ballots on the 9th Inst The Republicans mean fight and feel like congratulating themselves that al the meeting held last Saturday, they decided on vigorous action In the cam paign Instead of cheerful Idleness, now that the situation has developed In the manner It has. Acting Governor Cooper was seen this morning by Chairmen Kennedy and Gear and at that time, the follow ing protest, signed by Candidate Har ris was filed: Honolulu, April, 1902. Hon. H. E. Cooper, Secretary of the Territory ot Hawaii. Sir: The undersigned, a duly nomi nated candidate for election to the House of Representatives for the fourth District at the election to be held on the 9th Inst, hereby respect fully protests against the placing of the name ot August Drelcr upon the offi cial ballot. Tho ground of this pro test Is the fact that said August Dreler Is not qualified to vote for representa tives In said Fourth District and there fore not eligible to be a Representative and that he Is, by reason of said fact, not an eligible candidate for said office. Yours very respectfully, W. W. HARRIS. After this protest had been filed Act ing Governor Cooper stated that ha would hear argumonU on the protest at 2 p. m., allowing attornoys for the Home Rule and Republican parties to be present and submit their arguments. It Acting Governor Cooper decides that he cannot support the protest, which from his decision ot yesterday he', will probably do, then the matter will be taken to the Supreme Court as a case of W. W. Harris vs. Henry E. Cooper, Acting Governor. Should tho Supremo Court decide that It has no Jurisdiction In the mat ter then tho attorneys for the Republt can parfy will very probably carry It to the United States District Court for an Interpretation of tho Organic Act. At all events, tho Republican party Intends to fight the whole thing through to the end, neglecting not a single step on the way but pushing tho Ineligibility of the candidate of the Home Rule and Democratic parties for all It Is worth. If they fall In the end, then It will bo up to the voters , A nicotine of the Fourth District commltteo was held last night and the principal thing dono at tho meeting was the decision to fight the placing of the name ot August Dreler on the bal lots. The chairmen ot the Central and Fourth District committees were au thorized to get down to work Immedl ately. The first two meetings ot the cam paign on the Republican side will take place tonight at 7:30 o'clock. One will bo on the premises of the Moana hotel opposlto the hotel proper. This meet ing will be under the leadership or J. Mahlal Kancakua and the speakers will be Candidate W. W. Harris, Danlol Ko kaha, Geo. A. Davis and Ed. Towsc. Another meeting will bo held at the corner of Queen and South streets. Enoch Johnson, will bo chairman and the speakers will bo William Olepau, Keohokll, Lorrln Andrews, Senator W. C. AchI, W. J. Coelho and Representa tive Jonah Kumalaj. Through tho kindness of the Moana Hotel Co. thero will be a platform erected on their premises at Walklkl tyhere the meeting Is to bo held, Tho powerful arc lampB In tho immediate Wells, Fargo & Go. EXPRESS TEL. MAIN 199. Masonic Temple, with American Messenger 8ervlce. vicinity will furnish all the light no; cessary for the meeting. It Is oxpectcd that there will be a very large attend ance at both of these meetings, provid ing the weather is good. kThb Home Rulers have not yet made any announcement of the meetings which they propose to hold In the vari ous precincts nor will any ot the lead ers say anything about any plans they ma have. It Is believed that It Is, the Intention of , the Home Rulers to await the action of the Republican party and to lay out their plana after they hear what the Republicans have to say at their meet ings tonight. They will listen to ths arguments there adduced and then talk against them. The first meetings ot the Home. Rulers will probably bo held tomorrow flight. MONDELL'S.BILL RELATIVE TO- TUE FEDERAL COURT Regarded as Attempt to Destroy the Functions and Potency of the Federal 5 , Court. Imthc Bulletin ot March 27 appeared the (text of a bill Introduced In Con gress "by Representative- Mondell of Wyoming, amending the existing law In reference to appeals from the Unit ed States District Court of Hawaii. Lawyers who have taken time to pe ruse the bill, comparing It with the law sought to bq amended, perceive deep significance In the proposed meas ure and not a little mischief. One who has gone over the bill In that manner with a Bulletin reporter decleres It to be an Insidious attempt at undermining tho Jurisdiction and gen eral powers of the Federal court of this Territory, Though not Introduced by a lawyer. It contains In itself the evl dento ot having been drafted by some lawyer ot moro than ordinary shrewd ness. Tho bill has been described to a JJullstln reporter as an attempt to Brae -for the"transltlon -period" doc trinaires by legislation what could not be done by judicial determination. The bill Is an exact copy of the sec tions of the Organic Act creating tho District Court of Hawaii until they come to tho provisions for appeal to the Ninth Circuit Court ot Appeals of the United States. Then It changes to make the appeal be to the Supremo Court ot Hawaii instead of the Ninth Circuit nforcsald. This change would virtually transform the Federal court here Into a Territorial court, Its acts and decisions being reviewable by tho Territorial Supreme Court. Again the bill alters the word "States" to "Territories" In the fol lowing provision of the Organic Act: "Th claws of the United States re lating to appeals, writs of error, re moval of causes, and other 'matters and proceedings as between the courts' of the United States and the courts of the several TERRITORIES shall govern In such matters and proceedings as be tween the courts ot the United States and the courts of the Territory of Ha waii," etc. This amendment completes the sev erance of the local United States court from Its original Federal relationship. By the Judiciary Act of the United States passed In 1891 was created a Circuit Court of Appeals for each ot certain Jurisdictions, and by the Ha waiian Organic Act passed by Con gress in 1900 Hawaii was placed with in and made a part of tho jurisdiction of'the Ninth Circuit having Its Mat In California. Thus far four appeals from Judge Estee have gone to that appellate, court and been In every caso sustained. There Is machinery provided In the Judiciary Act of 1891 for conducting such appeals, but should the proposed amendment of the law relating to the District Court pass there Is an utter lack of machinery for carri'lnir It out. Therefore the passage of the measure would Involve not only tho amend ment of part of the Organic Act, but necessitate th,e repeal of part ot the Ju diciary Act of 1891. The United States District Court has exclusive jurisdiction of admiralty. bankruptcy, patents. Internal revenue, public lands and many other subjects. To havo It made subjective to the Ter ritorial Supreme Court would simply lender It a nonentity In Its Intended function of Interpreting purely Federal law. ENGINEERS' CLUU.
