arrival of Princess Kawananakoa from

Question of Degree 'M
"It strikes me that the attitude
here in tbe past . i that they are
heirs," said , Judge Ashford.
"I had supposed the law was other
witie, until ypur houor spoke," said At
torns, I). L. Withington, of counsel for
t lie Prince. The judge replied rather
wittily Jht he wished tbat remark had
been original with him. Th ' judge.
ent 0a to say where there are two
brother and One died and leave chil
dren their claim would be equal. Mr.
Withington added that the Hawaiian
statute gave heirship by the degree of
relationship,, and tbat under th la stat
ute, Prince Kuhio wa a degree closer
than the Kawananakoa children.
The origiual question concerning the
will matter came up through the re
quest of Prince Kuhio' counsel to have
an agreement for the continuance of
the present litigation to give the Dele
irnte an opportunity to gq to Washing
ton to attend - the present session of
congress. Two matter are now before
the. court relating to the Queen's es
tate, th first being Kuhio' peYition
for his own appointment a admini
trator and for the administration of
the Queen' estate, aad the second for
tho probate of the 1009 will.
U wua then that it wa suggested
'lint ns Princess Kawananakoa, mother
of the Kawananakoa minor was to be
here about the nineteenth, that tho
time be aet for a day after her ar
rival. . '
Case Bet Down
A th question came up concerning
whether tbe Kawununakoa minora ure
heirs, th bearing on this point was
set for January Id, although that in
three days before the Princess reaches
here. Letters received from her yes
terday dated Kan Francisco, January 4,
Mild she was' to leave Hun Francisco
about the- twelfth, snd that she was
coming here particularly on this and
other case concerning the property in
terests of the Kawttnanakiia minor's.
The hearing of Prince Kuhio 's re
quest for a coutinuauce of the will case
will be held January S.'l.
In court were a number of attorney"
connected with various phases of the
