target in which, by the .aid of
the Winder system of targets, rifle

tances np 10 1000 yards.
Genoral J. W. Jones yesterday submitted
to Governor Frear for his approval

The building as proposed will be
60x50 feet, one-story high, 20 feet in
the clear. The walls will be of concrete
and otherwise made bullet proof
so that there will be no danger from
, its use as a. rifle range.

which the effect and experience of
shooting at long distances is secured,

BEUTER IS HIT
HMD BY SAINTS
(From Sunday's Advertiser.)
A fair-sized crowd of interested fans
gathered at the baseball park yesterday
afternoon to see the exhibition
game played between the St. Louis
Champions ana the Picked Team. The
latter were weakened by the loss of
Vannatta- and Fernandez. Still it is
very doubtful if they would have won
had they had the services of these two
fast players. Reuter showed lack of
practise and was hit hard at all stages
of the game. It was very hot and the
big fellow seemed to tire as the game
progressed. On the other side Clown
Leslie pitched winning ball. He was
playing under instructions to speed
them over and he took 'orders and they
worked, as the result of the score will
The Saints hit when there were men
on bases and it was their superior
stick work that turned the trick. Hits
were made with men on bases and
they proved disastrous.
In the first two innings especially
Reuter was landed on hard and enough
scored right here to carry
them through. After the second inning
the boys all settled down and
some very pretty fielding was indulged
in. Hampton, Evers, Williams and
Soper all came in for their share of
applause from the stand. Fernandez
made a pretty running catch in center
and in all some real clever stunts
were pulled off. The game was a very
fast one and it took but a short time
to run off the nine innings. Had there
beerr a larger crowd to applaud the
game would have proved more Interesting.

S. M. Damon, who has done more for
golf and polo than anyone else in the
Territory, maintaining at his own expense
grounds for both of these games,
is considering the laying out of a race
track, where the sport of kings can
be carried on In a manner that will
probably reinstate It In popular favor.
On the level grounds of the estate,
Ewa of the golf links, a six furlong
track has already been surveyed and
staked out and tentative plans are laid
for going ahead with this and putting
it into shape.
Mr. Damon Is reported to have said
that he wooid be very glad to see the
sport of horseracing flourishing here
again. If properly conducted. He leaves
In a short time for England, where he
will look into the arrangements at
some of the best tracks of the country,
securing suggestions which might be
adopted here. On his return he will
probably go ahead with the fitting up
of the surveyed course at Moanalua.
The beautiful golf links and polo field
on his estate are practically given over
to the public use by Mr. Damon, In the
fostering of clean sport, and it is probable
that the track which Mr. Damon
will have laid out will be equally devoted
to public use provided a reputable
jockey club be formed. In such
an event Honolulu may have once more
good horse racing, cleanly conducted.
ROAD AROUND ROUND TOP.
A conference was held yesterday, between
Governor Frear and Land Commissioner
Pratt, at which it was decided
to have a preliminary survey
made of the proposed new Tantalus-road.
It is proposed that this road
shall start from the already decided
on Maklki Slopes road, some distance
above the Makiki reservoir, and, turn
ing off to the right, climb Round Top
by an easy grade above F. If.
Swanzy's house, and, passing around
Round Top on the Manoa Valley side,
pass the Alexander mountain house
and join the Tantalus road.
The road will open up and make
available a large amount of government

The Chinese Athletics have certainly
proved that they can play baseball
better than the Chinese Alohas. This
was shown at "the game yesterday afternoon
at Aala Park when the Alohas
Adjutant I were defeated by the score of 10 to 3.
The game was weil played throughout
and the fans have had a day of rooting
and yelling. ,
In the first inning the Chinese Athletics
failed to score, but their opponents
the Chinese Alohas brought in
three runs to- their credit. This started
the crowd and their voices could
be heard for quite a distance and the
Aloha supporters kept it up until the
fourth inning when the Athletics scored
six runs through the poor fielding
work of the Aloha boys, who were
playing as though they were half
asleep. This was quite discouraging to
TU IS ENDED
The Lillha street people's injunction
iuit against the Rapid Transit Company
Is all finished now except the
"filing of briefs, the decision of Judge
De Bolt, and the appeal that is sure
to be taken whichever side wins.
All the testimony on both sides, direct
and in rebuttal, was in by 11:30
o'clock yesterday fdrenoon. E. C. Peters,
for the Lillha street people, suggested
that the argument be by way
of briefs. D. L. Withington, for the
company, said he was ready to proceed
with oral argument at once.
j Judge De Bolt suggested, that he was
willing to sit a little later than twelve
o'clock noon, and that he would like
it if each side would make oral argument
to the extent of outlining their
position and their theory of the case,
and then the briefs could be filed
later. This suggestion was accepted,
and about an hour was consumed In
oral argument, altogether. The last
brief is to be In by Saturday noon
Former Governor Carter was the
leading witness yesterday. He testified
to the meetings and committees in
regard to the proposed change in
schedule with which he was connected.
He gave an account of the various
conferences in behalf of the people of
the Aloha rooters, who were not heard , L'Hha street, concluding with the one
any more. The Chinese Athletics came at the olllce or Castle & Withington.
in with another three in the fifth in- I at which, as a compromise for the
teen-minute schedule, a ten-minute
schedule for the rush hours and a
twenty-minute schedule for the rest
of the time was proposed. Governor
Carter testified that he agreed to that
compromise for himself, and agreed
that he would urge Its acceptance by
the people as being the best that could
b done under all the circumstances.
W. L. Howard, F. T. P. Waterhouse
and L. L. McCandless all testified to
the same matters. Their testimony as
to what occurred did not differ materially,
though It was clear that there
was considerable difference of opinion
among them as to just what the committee
should do after this conference,
whether to call another meeting to report
back, or what. There seems to
have been some sort of an understanding
that there was to be another conference
between representatives of the
people and the company, though this
seems to have been somewhat indefi
nite. As a matter of fact, there was
not another conference. There was a
meeting of the Lillha street people
where it was decided to hire a lawyer
and act on his advice. Peters was
hired and his advice was to act quickly,
before the company acted; and the
Injunction suit was the result.
The following are the witnesses who
testified in the case: C. G. Ballentyne,
Alonzo J. Wilson, E. C. Peters. Dr. C7
B. High, C. V. E. Dove, F. T. P.

Carter, W. L. Howard and L. L. Mc
In presenting his argument and his
theory of the case, E. C. Peters, for
the Lillha street people, quoted Section
841 of the Revised Statutes as follows:
"The said association and others shall
at all times maintain a sufficient number
of cars to be used upon said railway
'for the carriage of passengers,
as public convenience may require, and
such other cars designed for the carriage
of mails, parcels and goods as
they may deem necessary."
The duty imposed by this was a
duty measured by public convenience.
That duty could be enforced only by
the Territory, not by individuals. As
a public service corporation, the company
had received an exclusive franchise.
It owed duties which could be
enforced. In this proceeding the public
convenience was a matter of fact
to be established by evidence, and the
evidence was uncontradicted that anything
less than a ten-minute service
would not meet the public convenience.
In reply, D. L. Withington argued
that the company supplied sufficient
cars, as was shown by the fact that
the Lillha street cars had a seating capacity
of 38, and carried an average'
of eignt persons as against an average
.of eighteen on the Walalae line. He
held that the authorities were all to
the effect that the proper remedy In
cases against public service corporations
was mandamus and not Injunction,
but that the authorities w.ere
overwhelming that mandamus would
lie against a board of directors to
require them to change schedules, the
making of schedules being left by the
law to the business purposes of the
It was also argued that the present
Uliha street service was being run at
an average cost of $1854 a month and
was taking in an average of about
$1400 a month.
GASES ARGUED BEFORE
THE SUPREME COURT
In the Supreme Court yesterday the
exceptions from the First Circuit
Court in the case of Tsuruda vs. T. F.
Farm were argued and an oral decision
was rendered overruling the exceptions.
Exceptions in the case of Omoto
BunhichI vs. Honolulu Rapid Transit
& Land Co. were also argued by E. C.
Peters for the plaintiff and John W.
cathcart for the defendant. This was
an appeal from a judgment against
the street car company for the death
of a Japanese child at Pawaa Junction.
The matter was submitted and taken
under advisement by the court.

A MEMORIAL TABLET
IN KAWAIAHAO CHURCH
A memorial tablet to Mrs. Haalclea,
her husband Levi Ilaalelea, and his
brother Richard Haalilio has been
placed in Kawaiahao church and will
be unveiled next Sunday.
The tablet is a mural one on the
right of tho one plnced to the memory
of Kamehameha III., which is in tho
interior of' tho church to the left as
one enters the church proper from the

The tablet arrived from New York
a few weeks ago and was placed in
the church last Sunday when it was
expected that some sort of dedicatory
exercises would be held. The death
of Mother Parker, the mother of the
pastor of the church, intervened, and
it was postponed until yesterday. But
on. account of communion services yesterday,
tho unveiling ceremonies were
again postponed until next Sunday,
when it is expected that they will be
held. They will bo very simple.
Rev. H. H. Parker, who has been
pastor of the church since about' the
time of the death of the High Chief
Levi Haalelea and throughout most of
the lifo of the late Mrs. Ilaalelea, will
give a biographical account of the
Mrs. Haalelea became a member of
Kawaiahao church in her early life and
was constant in her affection for it.
One of the earliest church fairs in
Honolulu, it is said, was gotten up
and managed by her and resulted in
about two thousand dollars for the
benefit of the church.
The tablet is a gift from members
of the church and friends of the deceased.
Its cost was about $100.
Levi Haalelea was one of the high
chiefs who exerted much influence dur
ing the early years of the constitutional
monarchy, after the Hawaiiaa
people had been given civil rights and
the King no longer exercised unbridled
powers. His brother Richard Haalilio
shared with him the power which the
high chiefs exercised in those days.
The following regarding Mrs.
and her husband appeared in the
Advertiser of May 1, 1904, shortly
after her death:
The death of Mrs. Haalelea removes

DOWN THREE DECISIS
The Supreme Court yesterday handed
down decisions in three cases. One
of these was that of Carman vs. Carman
and others, a bill to quiet title.
The statement of the decision in the
syllabus Is that "Equity has no jurisdiction
to declare a plaintiffs- title
and to remove a cloud upon it created
by assertion of an adverse claim followed
by acts of trespass and annoyance
to the plaintiff where the respective
claims depend upon the settlement
of a legal controversy under

court decided among other things that
it was the amount asked for in a suit
and not the amount actually due that

The third case was that of Ah Sing
and sixty-seven others. The bill of
exceptions was dismissed on the
ground that the defendants had elected
to stand by their writ of error.
Suit may now be brought on the boryls
of the defendants.

As was announced by the Advertiser a
short time ago she left Salina Cruz
for San Francisco late, on account of
trouble with her engines and was to
have repairs made in the California
port, going there for that purpose instead
of coming direct to this city,
according to her usual schedule.
Advices received by cable yesterday
state that the Nebraskan left Salina
Cruz but wa3 compelled to put back
again on account of further trouble
and her date of arrival and her date
of departure from San Francisco is
therefore uncertain. Announcement of
when she will leave for this city will
be made through these columns as soon
as it can be ascertained in cable ad
reminiscences extending through the
most romantic period of Hawaiian history
would fill a volume.
Married at the ago of sixteen to a
high chief in the time of Kamehameha
III., and whose first wife
was granddaughter of Kamehameha
I., she became early in life identified
with the royal family, and
Pthrough the reign of five sovereigns,
was a prominent and attractive figure
in court circles. v
Mrs. Haalelea, formerly Ululani Ena,
was married at Hilo to Levi Haalelea,
who was a member of the house of
nobles and ono of the Privy Council
during the reign of Kamehameha IV.
The honeymoon was spent at the old
palace in Kailua, and from there
brought his bride to his homo in
Honolulu the place known in those
days as Holani Pa is now called
Lawn. The house was an. exceptionally
fine one for the time, and
to the young bride coming from Hawaii
to Honolulu for the first time
everything was beautiful as a dream.
The Queen Dowager, cousin of
had her residence adjoining Holani
Pa, and it was with her that Mrs.
Haalelea spent much of her time. She
kept a fine pair of horses and a white
man for a driver an unusual thing for
those days and would often send for
her young friend at four o'clock in
the morning and together, they would
go to Moanalua as far as Kapukaki,
returning in time for breakfast.
Her happy married life lasted but seven
years. She had a love for books and
poetry and many beautiful verses in
Hawaiian are from her pen. It was
one of her dreams to translate Sen

FRANCHISE HELD UP
' BY MOB OF CITIZENS
CHICAGO, III., September 21. An
angry throng of citizens invaded the
council chambers in the city hall at
Whiting, Ind., last night, preventing
the passage of the ordinance granting
a fifty-year franchise to the Hammond,
"Whiting and East Chicago
Railway Company, threatened to tar
and feather all aldermen who voted
for the unpopular measure, and drove
the aldermen from the hall.
Alderman Paul Schultz was roughly
handled. He was beaten and his cloth
ing was torn almost from his body.
Chief of Police Lav.ier and a number
nf policemen had difficulty In rescuing
For several days Whiting has been
placarded with bills calling a mass
meeting of citizens to protest against
the franchise. Fully 500 men answered
the call. Headed by H. B. Davison, a
wealthy real estate man, they marched
with banners and a brass band to
the city hall. The council had assem
bled and was preparing to bring uj
the franchise for passage. All but one
of the aldermen were known to be in
favor tf the measure.
Alderman Long and Alderman
Schultz, foremost champions of the
ordinance, attempted to speak in sup.
port of it They were hissed to silence.
An Inkwell was hurled through
the air from somewhere and broke
with a crash on Alderman Long's
desk. This gave the invaders courage.
Aldermen Long, Schultz and Michael
Kozacik were dragged to the front
of the chamber. They were arraign
ed like prisoners. Someone struck
Schultz In the face. This precipitat
ed a general attack. Long edged away-
through the throng and escaped.
Schultz was unmercifully pummelled.
At this juncture Chief Lawler and the
entire police force of Whiting, consisting
of fifteen men, charged Into

suitable monument to mark the spot
na which the first Hawaiian constitution
was signed. Mrs. L. G. Marshall

it is probable that Mr. Rubenstein will
be selected by the League as the one
to look after the matter. The letter

it a great favor If these suggestions
be accompanied by a sketch.
"The monument Is to be erected close
to the shore line, and something that
could be pointed out from passing

the small amount available may preclude
this, but possibly some of the

Comdr. J. M. Helm, U. S.X., who arrived
at San Francisco, Cal., Sept. 10,
from the Asiatic Station, where he
commanded the cruiser Galveston, is
quoted as saying that the report from
Honolulu of a mutiny or anything resembling
a mutiny on the cruiser
Raleigh during its stay there Is a libel
on one of the best ship's companies
that ever manned an American warship.
When the Raleigh arrived at
Honolulu, says Captain Helm, the first
duty was to coal ship, and until this
wa3 finished neither officers nor men
were allowed shore liberty. The ship
was coaled within two days and all
hands, watch by watch, were allowed
ashore. "I am sorry that story was
prlntedV said Captain Helm. "In the
first place. It Is not true. There is no
better discipline on any ship In the
Navy than on tho RaleJgh, where the
esprit de corps is unusually strong.
The Raleigh me one of the best records
for target practice and all around

been possible if such a state of affairs
