Willed to as a charge against, thn S''C

only to himself, and others in tho form
of two aitidavita, one made by the
judge anil one mado by Sister ilolone
of the Malulani hospital, diatiuctly dif

came to Honolulu te secure front the
supreme court a writ of mandamus di
rection Juilire Kingsbury to issue a
minimus consigning Mary Ann peters

ed upon her nearly a year airo. , The
matter was here referred to the nttor
ney general, who .wirelessed to Judge

i.ot been issued, Vincent having ex
plained that tho Maul jndire had do
clared that he had become convince!
that the sentence was too severe and
that be did not propose to have the
woman serve it out. Tbe reply of the
judge was that the mittiinns desired
had idst been issued. , 8 hat end-d
that part of tho matter and Vincent wi'.l
return to Wailuku satisfied.
The other charges will probably be
gone into, at ' length. ". They eoucern a

One affidavit was made by Judge Kings

With petition for a writ oT babeas cor

tainfld jn the Malulani Jloapital, In
which he. sweera that he wa oo '.'jn
any 'manner concerned in Any renioval
of the said Lucy Aikona Ah Jfam front
her home and denies that he had any
thing whatever to do with her lclviug
or being removed from tt going away
from the home of said Ah Ham." The
affidavit, which - denies that Judge
Kingsbury as -Judge (had anything
whatever to do with the Ah Bam ease,
furthei denies that,. "this respondent
(Judge Kingsbury) as said judge ever
made any order or. took . any action
whatever regarding tbe .aeparatidn of
the said Lucy Akiona Ah Pra from
her alleged husband." This affidavit
was sworn to before Florence Lee In
Honolulu , on. August 12, 1913. , , ... ;
; The contrary affidavit by Bister Hp!
fne, in the. same ease, says that she,
as matron of the hospital where Lucy
Aikona Ah Ham .was confined, . 'is now
and always has been under the belief
that, said , Lucy Aikona Ah bam was
placed in aald hospital for. care and pro
taction under tho direction 'of . the' said

said respondent (Sister llidune) admits
that she has allowed no visitors to co

unless given permission by the Honor
able 8. B.. Kincsburv." and that had
Lucy Akiona Ah 8am "attempted to
leave the premises "of the aald, hospi
tal, tne said respondent would nave re
strained her until communicating with
tbe said Honorable 8. I Kingsbury.'
As . shpwlug further that , Judge
Kingsbury had something to do .with,
confining Lucy Akiona Ah Bam ia the
hospital, which he denies, Mr, Murphy
has filed a certified copy of a- demand
against the county, in favor of Hala

be charged against the appropriation

' Beet Industry ' Is
.Doomed. .
" Here, write staff eorrospodent of
the Detroit Free Press from Washing
ton, under date of May 2S, is the ad
ministration attitude toward the Mi
chigan beet sugar industry
I "11 It Is a 'hot house industry and
can't exist without artificial tarilt pro
tection, then we don't want it..
f Anything so artificial, so unnatural,
o larking in innate strength that ev
erybody has to be taxed to support it
Lad better lie lot die. Better substi
tute something that we won't have to
tax everybody for.", i, ,
This attitude is held by tbe depart
ment of commerce todav. , Bearing this
in mind It la easy to forecast tho re
port that will be made by the secret
investigators of the department of com
merce now scrutinizing the Michigan
sugar beet industry. - . , v . :
The bureau of corporations, part of
the department of commerce, aont out
soino of its "smelling" experts to as
certain how, the Michigan beet sugar
business is faring under tbe Under
wood Simmons tariff.' :
'Smelling" Has Seen Enough.'
If was figured that ! "artificial de
pression" might be found and that a
great political soup might be made on
the eve of the fall elections by catch
ing some Republican business man to
bang higher than Haman' to quoto
the words of Secretary Bedflold, tor
many years vice president Of the Amer
ican blower works in Detroit.'-.,-'.
But the department of commerce has
lust reiterated the above dnoted atti
tude regarding "bot house industries. '
This, is significant. It means simply
this: - The "smelling'' squad out in
Michigan has wen enough; it has learn
ed that the Michigan sugar beet in
dustry is actually on its last legs and
will be wiped out whon.free sugar be
comes effective in the spring of JtMu.
In other words, the. Michigan eot
sugar industry will bo dead in 1016
and the . Democratic . tariff, will ' have
killed it. Just as the Louisiana cane
rugar business is dead already at a
loss that will reach (10,00(1,000.
. That's why tbo department pf com
meree ia so.-emphatic right now in
shouting,,) We don't want-, any hot
house industry." ' They are trying to
make people bolieve that what, they
are killing ought to be killed. .
In the Democratie platform of 191 3
it is stated, regarding the Kcpurltcan
tariff: "Under its operations the Amer
ican farmer and laboring man aro the
chief sufferers."-' ' .''..' ' ,

Despite Which' Union Press lias
Celebrated' Seoond Birthday

(Associated Frees Mail Special.) ;
IJT. PETERSBURG," June 2. But.
sian trade unionists nave neen cele
brating the socond anniversary of .the
establishment of a labor press in the
country. Notwithstanding the most
elaborate precautions' taken-by, the po
lice, meetings have beea hold in almost
all factories, collections made, and res
olutions adopted in support of the prcea.
In many factories workmen have re
ofved to devote to the press fnnd a
whole day's wages and to try their best
td increase the number of subscribers,
Hiuce it was established. Truth, the
organ of the trade unions, has had
thirty-six issues confiscated and it has
had to chaage its name naif a dor.ea
times. Besides, fines ' totaling 4000
have boon paid; eixtcen of its editors
have been imprisoned, and tneir sen
tences totaled forty-seven months.
In fact, throughout Russia, labor or
gavizations, through the interference of
thn police, are unable to exist openly.
This, ia the opinion of many of .the
employes, is the cause of the frequoat
strikes, and lack of understanding be
tween them anil their men, nhould
dispute arise and the men ajipoint the
delegates to meet the employers, those
delegates are immediately arrested as
the ringleaders of some imaginary rev
olution, and as a- consequence, to hold
thoir meetings ia secret and are prae
ticallr ruled by secret committees. No
man dare disobey the orders of thes
committees. . ... ..... .
' Tbe perfect control exercised 1
shown by an incident freftly- quoted
here. It wts intimated that no work
would be permitted on a casting re
quired for a certain battleship. ,- The
casting traveled from one dockyard to
another, and wherever it appeared the
men refusod to work on it. finally the
boycott was mysteriously removed and
the work was speedily completed.
. ' . Beady for Eclipse. '
. Russia is looking forward to an in
ternational astronomical invasion for
the purpose of observing ' the aolar
eclipse on August 21. ... -
In the west of Europe the eclipse will
bo visiblo only partially, but Russia
will be favored by a vision of total
eclipse. It will begin in Norway, pass
through Sweden and the Baltic, and
then travel through Russia from north
went' to southeast, retreating to Asia
Minor and Persia, The duration of the
total eclipse will vary from a few sec
onds to a few minutes, and it will be
longest at Minsk, where it will last two
and a quarter minutes.
. British Astronomers will be WelJ rep
resented.. Frank Watson Dyson, at the
head of a large staff, will make obser
vations kt Minsk on-behalf of Green
wich ' )bsorYatory; H. F. Newall will
head an expedition from the Cambridge
Astroiibysicat " Observatory to Thco
dosla; while Professor A. -Fowler of
the Rovnl Astronomical Society will
make his headquarters , at Kieff. No
fewer thari eleven scientific societies of
Western Enropo have already staked
opt their claims on Russian soil, and
iq addition many individual men of
science will be present, on their own
initiative. '
