As To Validity ; '
of Will of Swanzy
Question Is Asked Whether Birth

On Validity of Instrument ;
Because a daughter was borh to Mr.
and Mrs." Francis Mill Bwanr.y after
h had (igned hi last will and testa
ment, ' which ' w dated October !.'(,
1890, Joha F. Colbura, th master ap

Jwanzy at the time of hi deal la
February, 19 17, raises s qpestioti as to
whether th term of the will may aot

lent.:.-;: w ;v..--
Th master called the Judge 'a atten

"Th paramount feature of the law

'is not so much as to the marriagi

alue-of the estate the sum of (t,370,

- Mr, Colburn recommends that ' thr
dministrator of, the estate should b--.warded
further commissions of tw

nheritaac Tax Unpaid
The master rah, attention to thi
act that the administrator has aa ye
iled to pay to the. Territory the in
eritaqee tax, although he haa a large
ash balaare on hand and whereby ir
aying it now he will obtain the die
ount provided by law. The territoria
reasurer informed the master that h
as approved - the appraisement madi
nd would be willing to accept the in
eritanee tax in accordance- therewith
'he same applies a Itto to the balanet
f the federal (ax, which also haa no'
een' paid. The master makes com
nents on the liquidating of indebeted
icsses aa follows:
"This estate is one vented with thi
nost of its assets made up of persons'
iroperty; n other words, aasets tha'
het administrator is empowered undo
he law to convert into cash at hi dis
retion without even asking the court'
erraission during his term of Idmii
aymnt of Debt
"For instance, the demise of a per
on occur, such at in this case. H
wn all kinds of personal property
ind some real estate. There is
izecutor or. administrator appoint
ind the appointee advertise fo
laims, has a certain length of time i
hicli to file his Inventory and, unde.
II usual conditions, the claims, what
tver they may lie, must be filed ia si'
lontli from the date of the Brit pub
'ieatiqn or in six months after a ciair
becomes due. The executor or admin
istrator, to expedite the settlement o'1
the estate and not knowing what obli
rations the person haa contracted dur
ing his lifetime, or in general word
9wet, take it upon himself to sell am"
dispose of everything ia the way o'
nersonal property to be prepared to o'
off the creditors. No statute prohibit
him from selling, but with the real es
tate the appointee is tied hand an
foot by not being able to sell tha'
class of property until 'the time is ui
for the presentation of rlnima and If
after such time, be finds that no per
soniil property is available to pay of
with, nr there is not a sufficient 'ouan
tity. then, and only in that ease, ia h
permitted to sell real estate. Ever
then he must 'nny to the court for per
miKHion, and the court cannot gran'
tlist permission unless it is for th
express purpose of paying the debt o'
the deceased person, and after the ear

conimisainn that is allow ! rpon sale
of the personal property. Otherwise, i'
1 property i not "old. no commls

sell the personal property at anything
within six months, and he doe not do
it, but takes pot lunk chance to sell
later, after the six month I up and he
haa delayed tb settlement and krpt
the crcAitor out Of their money longer I
than he should, 1 tak it he I entitled

WAILIJKtr, Maui, December 20 A
meeting of the committee on sport of
the Maui Fair and Racing Association
was held last week for the purpose of
discussing the challenge isaued by the
United Btatea Cavalry baseball team,
Honolulu, to play the -Maui boy a ae
rie of game at New Tear. The com
mlttee felt that the time wa too ahort
to.' get together -a good team and it
would take a lot or hard practise. ana
also involve a pecuniary outlay that
they .were not Ja a position to meet at
present. Jt Ms, therefore, deemed ad
visable to decline to. accept tha chal
lenge, with Maul's regrets.
A challenge from Molokal to play
any Individual basebail team on Maui
was also turned down.

Although (t is doubtful If mainland
swimmers' may be secured for th A.
A. U. meet during Carnival week next
Febrfatry, ther will b enough record
holder la llsrwall to mat the meet a
sueeess," with the probability that new
record will be made, for Hawaii seems
to have that knack of changing ' th
swimming chart time every time there
is a meet here. .
With Duk Kahnnamoku, ' Clarence
Lane,' John Kelli aad Harold Kruger
a hendlinera and a galaxy of lesser art
ist th meet will easily be a success.
Of eourse. it wonld look better if main
land eptries eould be aeeured. . Ktill,
there is Ludy Laager," who - may be
available, at that time, for the wteet,
although it is believed that hie duties
at the coming training ramp 'may pre
vent him from being a competitor.
.Among the mermaid there are Elea
nor I.yseT. Marion Dowaett, Josephine
Hopkins, the Kenn and Anld sisters nd
a good. many more who willmake the
meet a stellar attraction, even though
it b but a local one. - ; V-'1 -v
