Representative Wrltrht of the Second District of Konn, Hawaii, came near bcltiK punished for contempt of court by Judge Wilcox yeHterdny forenoon. The representative nppearcd us the attorney for his brother-in-law, Adam Duncan, the police officer, who was plnced under arrest on Saturday evening for using profane language and calling nttaches vile names at the station while In uniform. On Monday, Spealcer Bcckley punished the legislator for being absent. Yesterday Judge Wilcox had Just a wee doubt In bis mind ns to how far legislators, while attending legislative sessions, were amenable to the law. Had he known In court what he learned later on, the representative would surely have been sent to jnll. The prosecution put on the Htnnd Joe Storer, the Porto Ttlcnn boy who lias been assisting the Deputy Sheriff In running to earth several of the worst Porto Rlcnn and negro criminals In town. Joe testified that while he was sitting In a carrlnge hired by the Deputy Sheriff and which was standing before the Police Station Duncan came along and called him several vile names. When the testimony was nil In, Wright nrose and naked the Judge to dismiss the defendant, alleging that the prosecution had failed to prove Duncan's guilt. Then Wright made the following remark which electrllled the court and the spectators: "That boy Is n black . Anybody can teil that by looking Into his face." The Deputy Sheriff arose at once and demanded tlint such language bo withdrawn. Ho charged Wright with lacking 11 sense of honor, especially 113 he was a man engaged In framing laws for the country. He requested the Judge to commit him for contempt of court. Then Judge Wilcox turned loose on Wright and gave him a tongue-lashing. "I wish to tell you that you can not use that kind of language In this court," snld he angrily, "and it you ever do it ngnin I will take nummary action with you." Wright endeavored to frame an excuse but got no hearing. His client was then adjudged guilty and fined $10 nnd costs. It Is common report that many of the native legislators feel that they are above the law and cannot be punished for nny offense they may commit while the legislature Is In session. One lator went so far as to say recently that he could knock n mnn down and he couldn't be arrested for It. -. JAP LABORERS WHO FOUND HARD LUCK The fifty Japanese lnborers who left here sometime ago, ostensibly for an Alaskan cannery, were nt last report still In Snn Francisco. That they are having a deal of trouble with the labor agents can be adduced from the following item appearing in one of the Japanese newspapers published In San Francisco: "Laborers for Alaska are In a great trouble. The laborers recruited and brought from the Hawaiian Inlands by T. Olshl, In a quandary. Kver since their arrival here, they are meeting 11 heap of troubles, and a recent dtlllculty with the labor agent has culminated with the arrest of ono of the crowd which occurred nt Jessie St. on March 31st." The report Is a good dose of medicine for nome of those foolish laborers who simply want to emigrate to the without, nny apparent reason whatever for doing so. Hawaii Shlnpo.

HOW THE MOSQUITO CAME TO INFEST THEES ISLANDS Now, everybody known that the Is ono of the most serious pests mulcting the people of these Islands. Everybody does not know, perhaps, that the mosquito Is an Imported pest. It 1ms been hero no long, and has made Itself so much at home, that It Is supposed to be here by prescriptive tight, much the same as any other native and, possibly, that Is the reason why no systematic effort has ever been made to get rid of It. People have hpsltnted to attack so old a settler almost an aborigine. In fact. Of course there are Instances of Individual upon It. No man hesltntes to kill a mosquito. If he can, If It bites him or even, sometimes. If its singing become unbearable to tlio tried nerves. But systematic war has never yet been undertaken. Perhaps, when, everybody knows that the mosquito does not to the land but is himself or herself, for It is the lady mosquitoes who do the biting and the singing a stranger no consideration of that kind will be allowed to stand In the wny of a systematic effort at annihilation. The story of the coming of the mosquito Is thus told by D. L. Van Dine, entomologist at the local U. S. Experiment Station: "Previous to tlio year 1S26 mosquitoes were unknown here. During that year they were brought to the port of on the Island of Maul In the ship 'Wellington' from Snn Bias, Mexico, The story as told to Prof. W. D. Alexander of this city by his father-in-law. Dr. D, Baldwin, late missionary In charge of the Lahalna station, who received the Information from the Rev. Wm. Rlchnrds, his predecessor In charge of the Mission Stntlon at at that time, Is an follows: Mr. Richards was returning home to one evening about dusk and met n native who Informed him that there was a now 'fly' In the place. Ho described It as being a, very peculiar 'fly that mnde Its presence known by 'a singing In the ear.' Shortly nfterwards Mr. Richards heard the 'singing1 In Ills ear and recognized the wound as belonging to the mosquito. Thin was the first Instance the mosquito had attract 4 l.tl.t4.l. A 4. A iW IN THE TOE GOVERNOR AFTERNOON SESSION. Four bills were communicated from the House ns having passed third reading. The House clerk reported that the report of the Conference Committee on the county bill had been adopted. Reading of the bill on explosives wns then resumed. An nmendment was made striking out the year's Imprisonment section, us It could not affect corporations. The word "powder" wns changed to "gunpowder," as It was remarked that the law might prevent the storage of baking powder. Section 4, chapter S9, of the Civil Code Is repealed. The bill passed third reading with 13'nyes, Kaohl and Woods being nbsent. I "Where Is AVoods," asked President Crubbe. "I'll have to suspend him for twenty seconds." , The bill providing for a digest of the Hawaiian Supreme Court reports passed third reading with 12 votes. The bill to enforce decrees In equity passed with the same vote. WAYS AND MEANS REPORTS. Senator Baldwin reported favorably the House bill to encouruge diversified Industries, submitting two amendments, one reducing the tax exemption from ten to live years, the other to Include also castor oil and pineapples In the exemption. The same committee mnde a favorable report on the bill providing for a Deputy Registrar of Accounts. Both reports were adopted, bills to be read a third time today. The House bill designating two paydays In the month passed third reading with 13 ayes. WINSTON FRANCHISE AGAIN. Senator Achl moved to take from the table No. 63, the Winston franchise, and this carried, with 9 votes. It was then referred to the Miscellaneous Committee again. VETO SUSTAINED. The regular appropriation bill, next on the order of the day, was deferred in order to take up the Governor's veto on the bill providing for Incorporation of societies to prevent cruelty to children. The ote to pass the bill over the Governor's veto wns taken without debate. It resulted: Ayes Achl, Baldwin, J. 1'. Brown, Isenberg, Kalue, McCamlless, Nakaapahu, Crabbe 9. Noes C. Brown, Dickey, Paris, Wilcox 4 Kaohl and Woods absent. The veto was sustained. The Senate adjourned at 2:45, on motion of Senator Baldwin. ed nttentlon In these Islands. Lahalna was the port at that time for the Incoming nnd outgoing ships. It Is easy to unileiHtand tlint at that early time the ships coming here were few and far between. All evidence pointed to the ship 'Wellington' as the carrier of the pest. This story was later corroborated by Mr. Henry A. Pierce, late IT. S. Minister to Hawaii In the seventies. Furthermore, up to the year 1S20 there was no word In the Hawaiian language for mosquito. The native name for mosquito 1m maklka, a corruption of the name mosaulto, "The one Introduced wns the common 'night' mosquito or Culex. The 'day' mosquito (Stegomyin) was Introduced during the present generation. Since the mosquito Introduced In 1S2C wns the Culex and Culex plplens Is the abundant mosquito hero nnd the ono oc curring generally over the Islands, the Inference Is that this Is the species brought hero on the ship 'Wellington' from Snn Bins, Mexico. "The mosquitoes were a long time spreading over the Islands. In the eighties It Is snld they were not nt Maknwao, on the same Island as Tlio building of roads, making settlement nnd communication possible, and the Intimate commu nication of late years has bo favored their spread that today It is difficult to name a placo which Is not burdened by this most annoying and, since we have the yellow-fever species, dangerous pest."

SOES FOR AJIG FEE Lcc Toma Had His Custom Duties Remitted. Harry J. Johnston, a cuatom house broker, litis brought suit against Lee Toma &.Co. for $5957.02 which ho claims as a fee for securing the release of the defendant from paying customs duties of three times that amount. The plaintiff claims he was employed by Lee Toma as attorney to prepare proteots before the collector at Honolulu, upprnlsers In New York and Secretary of the Treasury for a remission of duties on certain Importations by the defendnnt. On 3110 pounds of Manilla tobacco wrapper brought May 13, 1901, on the America Maru, Collector Stackablc assessed a duty of J5753.G0 of which the sum of I1SC4 was paid. On August 27, 1901, the China brought to defendant 1016 pounds of cigars upon which the duty assessed was $4780.36 and on October 31st, 1901, 100,000 cigars were Imported which the Collector assessed at $6337.22. Plaintiff alleges that he filed protests against the classification with the Collector In Honolulu nnd also' presented briefs to the Secretary of the Treasury to show that the duties were Illegally assessed. In consequence of his efforts, Johnston eays that the Secretary of the Treasury rendered a decision overruling the nctlon of the Collector, and holding that the merchandise was not subject to duty, nnd ordered the re turn of the $1864 already paid. Plaintiff further says that the defend ant benefited by such decision to the amount of $17,871.0S, nnd that accord ing to the standard of compensation prevailing In Honolulu, Washington and New York, he Is entitled to one-third of the amount saved to the Importer, wherefore he neks Judgment for $5957.02. JAPANESE DIVORCE CASE. Hlsa KoJIma has brought suit against Sadaklchl KoJIma for an absolute divorce. She says that ho has deserted her, and treated her with extreme cruelty by living away from her. She alleges also that he Is about to leave for Japan. She says he Is worth $30,000 and asks gross alimony In the amount of $6,000. John Emmeluth, ns trustee, has sued Mary E. Foster for possession of property on this island. He asks also $250 damages. -- Not Greek. But Russian. The so-called Greek books found In the police station prove to be the property of the Hawaiian Historical Society and are inithe Russian language. They constitute an account of the cruise of the Russian war ship Kamchatka In 1818. When Fageroos wns on the police force they were placed In his hands by Prof. Alexander for translation. Several attempts have since been mnde to recover them, but they could nqt be found. Prof. Alexander yesterday morning proved they were the property of the society, received the books and replaced them In the society library. THE BRIGHT SIDE OF LIFB.

Among tho countless things which tend to mako us moro or les3 miserable ill health takes first placo. Hannah Moro said that sin was gonorally to bo attributed to biliousness. No doubt a crippled liver with tho resulting impuro blood, is tho causo of moro mental gloom than any othor Binglo tiling.
