(From Sunday's Advcrtisor.)
Chairman Adams of tho belt road commission

Tho commission wns not altogether

tion of an appeal to tbo supremo court
and adjourned to tbo call of tbo chair.
When tho commission does me6t next
week it will bo in secret session. No
reporters will bo admitted and
ly not tho attornoya for Mr. Wilson,
who was tbo lowest bidder on tbo Koo-Ian
road contract, but was not awarded
"As to meetings when wo consider
contracts nnd mnttcrs of that Bort,"
said Chairman Adams, "I am for open
mcetijigs and have been. But when
wo discus matters ns to appeals I am
in favor of executive sessions."
Mr. Adams then spoko of tbo question
of pcrmittinir tbo attornovs of Mr.
Wilson to appear before the commission

Ho bad something to say about
that and said it:
"I went to Mr. Wilson's attornoys
anu laid ueioro them tno ivliolo matter,
but when they used that intorviow
I did not liko it. Therefore, I am not
in favor of doing anything for them
again. Wo should discuss this mnttor
with our attornoy only."
SUGAR MEN HAPPY;

The predictions of Kdwnrd Pollitz that

Chinaman Will Probably Be Ex
onerated for Killing
Tho coronor's jury investigating tbo
supposed murder of G. Oki by a Chinaman
at Aica, is to have some exciting
times when it settles down to tako tho
complete evidence. It is to hno a
session tonight in which it will got
through with as much of its work as
is possible, but may bavo to adjourn
again, ns many of the Japanese- witnesses
nro still in tbo hospital from' tho
wounds received in the fight in which
Oki was killed.
The Japanese and Cbincso witnesses
toll a story opposite in ovory detail.
Ono Jnpancso who was stabbed, states
that ho was dressing in his bouso'ou
ono sido of tho railroad track and saw
tho light going on in the middle of the
road ft shorty ways down tho track. Ho
saw Oki stabbed and fall, and tho
Chinaman take tho knifo out of bis
body. Ho thou ran down to join in
and according to his story, the Chinaman
took tho knifo out of tho bodv
again nnd stabbed him. As ho pro
vides omireiy too many knives In tho
case, his story is discredited from, the
start. The other Japaneso, however,
tell materially thq samo story.
The Chinaman, now in jail awaiting
charges, states that tho assault on him
took placo first in a hollow in tho yard
back of his houso. His house and yard
nro not only on the other side of" tho
track from tbo Jnpaneso's bouse, but
on tbo opposite side of a big flume
which is raised abovo tho level of the
Aftor ho wns first assaulted, ho says,
ho rushed into tbo house whero he was
ngaiu attacked by tho Japanese. He
picked up a knifo and struck at bis
assailants and it was there, ho says,
that he gave Oki his death wound.
Tho police givo entire credence to his
story. Thero wero a number of othor
Chinese witnesses who tell it in exactly
tbo same way as ho docs. There
has been absolutely no communication
between tho prisoner nnd his friends
ns immediately after the fight he
jumped out of tho window and ran into
the eano field for his life. Ho made
his way directly to the manager's
houso and then to tbo deputy sheriff

He will undoubtedly be charged with
murder by the polled as a

on tho morrow ho may faco all his
countrymen with his conscienco clear.
With all debts paid ho will not face
tho possibility of bad lurk for the ensuing
twelvemonth. This is a rulo
rigidly adhered to among tho Chineso
whether at homo or abroad. It behooves
all householders who may bo

cook or yardman to square up
with him. If householders forget it or
try- to, tliey will bo reminded of tbo
matter before tho week is over. While
it may not lay heavy upon tho conscience
of tho housoholdcr, tho latter
mny rest assured that the ghost of a
dragon will sooner or later haunt tho
Chango In Chinatown.
Down in Chinatown a great change
has taken place. Tho oldtimo barber
shops, those quaint hole-in-the-wall
places of business, where queues wore
newly braided, scalps shaved, ears
cleansed and tho head groomed, aro disappearing
since tho rexolution in China
commenced. In years gone by this was
the spason when tbo barber shops wore
gay with new trimmings, fresh paint
and washbowls bright with polish. This
was tho time when tho "barbershop
chords" wero tho vogue. It must have
been m a Chineso barber shop that
"barber-shop chord" first originated,
for there the Chinese musicians wero
wont to gather, attuno their instruments
to tho sing-song of the leader,
and then split tho welkin with tho
screech of tho flageolet, tho scratch of
the violin, tho crash of tho cymbals,
tho advanco of tho Chinese progressives
of Honolulu. They demanded shenrs
instead of razors for head dressing.
The old-style barbers were at a loss.
They knew how to wield a rnzor upon
lips, cheeks, chins and polls, but shears
wero on unknown instrument in harboring.
Sum Pat, a kindly-faced Chinese
barber, who has wielded tho razor
for years in China and Honolulu,
is learning tho Occident way of
hnirdressing now. His littlo shop on
Ivcknuliko street is still as popular as
ever, but the old man is slow to acquire
tbo wavs of occidental harboring.
Shears have been added to his equipment.
Tho shears nro still strange in
his fingers and ho is slowly reaching an
understanding ns to how tho hi'rsuto
adornments of his customers shall be
trimmed. His is ono of tho few old
shops left in Chinatown. It still has
its square-rigged chair and green nnd
red painted stands and tho oldtimo

Tho tailor shops nil through Chinatown
are also busy turning out blouses
of gay colors, with brass buttons nnd
braid attachments, but even this stylo
is likely to pnss into tho dim past along
with hundreds of other ancient oddities
which have been held to tho
present by sheer compulsion on tho
part of the former Mnnchu rulers. There

Court Uncertain Whether Punchbowl
Street Is in Honolulu
or South America.
Because ho is uncertain wbcthor by
Punchbowl street the prosecution in the
caso against Capt. W. L. Bowers, meant
to infer that the offense of which tho
captain was accused was committed in
Honolulu or South America, Judge
Robinson yesterday ordered a directed
verdict of ncquittul.
Captain Bowers was accused of having
threatened to "porfornto ono
an agent of the board of health,
if McMahon perforated tho gutter"
of tho Bowors houso. The caso grew
out of tho antimosquito campaign.
Bowers is oue of tho fobs of tho' campaign
and jefufed to allow McMahon
to enter his grounds or to, take tho
needed steps in clearing tho place of
mosquito wrigglers. Ho was represented
by attorney E. ,C. Peters.
Deputy Attorney General Lymor was
Peters asked that tho court direct
the jury to return a verdict , of not
guilty on four grounds. His flrsfc was
"that tho prosecution had failed to
road any charge of complaint to tho
jury." Tho second wns that tho pro
secution had "failed to provo tho al-
leged offenso had been committed within
the jurisdiction of tho court," tho
third, "that McMahon was not at tho
the barbaric deep tono of tho shark-' Umo a,a aKcnt for tn ooar3 "f health,"

ttato "B1 failed to tho guilt
But now tho barber shops aro no provo
more. Tho roolution in Cuina against ui luu i" "" ,v"a """
tho Mnnchu throne caused a revolution mnttor and thrown in for good
in the stylo of hairdrcssing. With tho urc.
nrst nuvanco ot tue reoei army camo
Tho court upheld tho first two
grounds and denied tho last two.
Lymcr had orred, thought His Honor,
in failing to read tho charge to tho
jury "ono of tho fundamental principles
of law" -and had also "failed to
provo venue. Tho chief witness testified
that tho alleged offenso was committed
on Punchbowl street, but
neglected to stato whethor Punchbowl
street is in Honolulu or South America."
Later tho court said, "thero was
iiothing left for nio to do. I had to
grant tho motion for a directed verdict.
"This termination," said Judge
Lymcr, last night, "is vory woleomo to
tho prosecution. Tho main nnd only
witness did not testify on tho stand in
accordance with his reiterated statements
to mo and to my secretary before
tho trial, and thero was practically no

not go to tho jury with a certainty of
