W. E. Man- Runs Away With His
Own Child and is Followed
From Massachusetts.
a continent and halt way
ACIIOSS western ocean, drawn by
love of her son, came a weary
mother. Her child was secured, the
law Invoked, and last night, after three
months of untiring search, the baby
boy slept upon the breast which nur
tured him. There will be a legal fight
before the father, who stole away from
the Atlantic Coast with his son, will
give him up, and these tropic Islands
will see the close of a contest for the
guardianship of n child of New England.
A summons noa Issued yesterday to
High Sheriff Brown on the complaint
of Mrs. W. E. Marr of Fall River,
Mass., directing him to notify one Walter
Erwln Marr to appear before Judge
Gear at chambers on September 6th at
10 a. m. to show cause, if any he has,
w hy Mrs. Marr should not be appointed
guardian of her son, Harold E. Marr.
At the same time a temporary Injunction
was Issued ordering W. E.
Marr to refrain from molesting, disturbing
or Interfering with Harold E.
Marr until the matter of guardianship
hall be determined by the court.
The summons was served on Marr
yesterday evening by Deputy Sheriff
Madura,, was teat supper
at the Langton House.
Mrs. Marr has retained the services of
W. R. Castle and A. I,. Weaver in her
tight for her child.
Under the above somewhat prosaic
proceedings lies a surpassingly interesting
story of a man who loved his
child better than his wife, and of a wife
who was more fondly attached to her
son than to her husband. It is a story
of domestic Infelicity exceedingly sad
In itself, yet possessing a golden vein
which runs through it from beginning
to end, the abiding love or two unhappy
parents for a little boy.
Three years ago Walter Marr and his
wife lived happily enough In the town
of Fall River. They were plentifully
endowed with worldly goods and their
. lives were gladdened by the presence
of a little son. Things went very well
with them then. Somehow, however, a
rift in the lute developed, and the outcome
of the unhapptness was that the
couple agreed to disagree and Mr.
Marr went to New Tork, leaving his
wife and child at the old home.
Until four months ago Mrs, Marr
neither saw nor heard anything of her
husband. Then one day a letter came
asking that a meeting be arranged and
that the father be allowed to see his
Mrs. Marr wrote back suggesting that
her husband meet her on a day named
at the Fall River depot. The day arrived
and with It the errant husband.
Greetings were exchanged between the
long-separated pair, the couple visited
their old home, and It looked as if a
reconciliation would surely be effected.
During the afternoon Mr. Marr suggested
to his wife that he should take
their little Harold to visit a grandparent.
Mrs. Marr assented and the two
drove away.
The afternoon wore on, dusk gave
place to darkness, and still the anxious
mother awaited the return of her husband
and child. They did not come
that night nor the following day. The
next 'meeting of the members of the
family was destined to occur In a distant
About two months ago Walter Mnrr
and child arrived nn Honolulu and the
father went to work at the Metropolitan
Meat Market, where he has been
employed ever since. He lodged and
bearded at the Langton House. Every
day when he went to work he left the
child In the care of the Castle Home
on King street, calling for him In the
evening, when the toil of the day was
over and the man was free to nasa the
evening In company with the atom of
Humanity wno was dearer to him than
anything else hi the world.
The affection he bore the little one
was wonderful; he humored his every
whim, and nothing was too good for the
child. His life seemed to be bound up
In that of his son.

Cecil Brown Writes and Receives
Letters From the Man From
Maine Without Effect
the end of the year Harold
BEFORE will have ceased to be
the Republican National Commit
teeman or will have signified that his
Intention Is to return to Hawaii to make
his home. This Is tho opinion of most
of the Republicans who have followed
the uttempt to have Sewall remove him
self from the nnnltlnn of nfflMnl ranrA.
sentatlve of the party in Hawaii. The
weight of opinion Is that he will withdraw.
The dissatisfaction which was felt
over the election of Sewall to the place
wiis Intensified when it was found that
the committeeman hnrl tnkon Mm.nir
away from the Territory and displayed
no disposition to return. There was a
long period of silence on the part of the
leaders of the party, and when In last
March It was found that'tJie former
Minister and special agent wa In Run

would then come down and, make his

for a time prevented and the" notification
came that a call from Maine
made It impossible thai Mr. Bewail

Tlien it was that Senator Cecil Brown,
who in addition to bednf one of the,
leaders of the nnrtv I. a olna mmmii
and political friend of Bewail, wrote to
him and itvnlnlniwl th.t ih.M4 ..

all that there would be further news
from him on any steamer within the
post month.
The answer of Mr. Bewail, as described
hy Senator Drown, was that tho
position taken by tho writer was th
correct one; that the Territory was entitled
to representation on the national
committee by a man who resided In and
was a citizen of it; that he had made
no decision as to ithe course he would
follow; he might come back here and
he might not do so. So It was left In
the air, whether or not thp committeeman
would resign. He further said
that he was culmr to Maine nnrl
decide upon .his, plans while there. Two
months have elapsed since that letter
and yet there has come io the waiters
here no Information as to the decision
of the committeeman.
There are some of the. party workers
Who think that there Hh'mifil h nn nnrn

Territory. There a'fe "said to be many
things which might come to workers
here, if there was an active worker In
the place who would look out for thi
rrfianizatlon. The fact that there hav
been no places given to men of tho nr.
ganizatlon. excent those local to th
Territory, has aroused some of those
wno nave had experience In the Mainland
States and Territories, and who
know how much of national patronage
soeu with the commltteemanshlp. There
l.t no Information here whether or not
the quota of this Territory has beep
filled from Maine or Is still at the disposal
of the local organization.
