proD&Die mat a verdict In the ease will
be reached before the day ia over.
After the prosecution had presented
testimony reviewing the event I. con
nection with the tragedy, all of which
are admitted by the defense, Attorney
Lorrin Andre we, who with Attorney
Will Carden and William Rawlins re
appearing for Captain Allen, outlined
tq the jury what the defenae intended
to prove. , , ;
Derma Outlined
.. Attorney Andrew eaid he would
show that Captain Allen had long been
a renwte1 arid law abiiHag eitiaen,
who had come, to Honolulu after ha
had wen a loan and honorable period
of'aervire in the United State .aavy.
It would be shown, he aaid,. that the
. aeeused men bad been intensely patri
ot i- and for year had . engaged in
patriotie work of various kind, nd in
particular had done faithful -aervioe a
aa in struct or and worker with tb Boy
flouts and similar erganiaationa.
t would be shown also, the attarney
said, that Walker bore the reputation
of being a dangerous man, who on a
nomber of oeeaaion had expressed ord
iterman sympatnie. ue said also that
testimony would be introduced to prove :
that Walker habitually carried an open
ciesp nnire in ni poeket and that Just
before the shooting near Cantaia. Al
len V stand occurred, talker waa ad
vancing oa Captaia AlUn-whila th
Jatter wa retrentlnc
In hia atatement the attorney promt-
et to snow that only a, oaotooeaaio
iwrnre tne snoounr aaO) vr.lfeoBf give,
evidence of disloyalty in hi intereonrao
wun captain Alien and thja waa
when lie made a slurring reference
to an American flag and walked awev.
On that occasion, the attorney aaid, Al
io had started out of his stand and
hnd been seised with a fit of dizziness,
When he recovered tho attorney said,
he doubted that he had heard Walker
nright and so had not taken up the
matter with him.
Two witnesses would show, the at
torney went on, that on tho night of
the shooting they had gone to AJlen
end had told him to have a talk with
Walker. Both had heard Walker nslng
disloyal language, the attorney aald
end after they had talked to Allen
about it. he promised reluctantly to
take Walker to task. These talks pro
ceded the shooting by only a short time.
All of what Attorney Andrews said
vould be proved by the defense, save
hi statement that Walker waa known
ns a dangerous character who carried
nn open knife, had been proved by
dozen witnesses wPden the trial was ad
journed at noon. It is expected that
the remaining links In the ehaia of de
fense will be supplied this morning
when the testimony of Chief of De
tectives McDufHe and that of the accus
ed man is given.
TeU of Tragedy
. After his statement to the jury in
which he said he wonld show that th
crime of which Captain Allen i ac
cused had been committed fn the man
ner set forth in the indictment, City
Attorney A. M. Brown, who is conduct
ing the prosecution, called Patrolman
Abel Kia as the first witness.
Pntrolman Kia told of having eome
to the King Street corner of Aala Park
on the Sunday nicbt.of the tragedy
where be fonnd Walker lying in the
street seriously wounded. H. had as
certained from Captain Alien himself
how the shootiag had occurred and bad
arrested Allen and arranged to have
the wounded man removed to the emer
gency hosnital, he said.
B. A. Wntson, proprietor of . soft
drink stand across the street from that
conducted by Captain Allen, who had
gone to. the assistance of tbo wounded
man after the shooting, waa the next
"itnesa. He told of1 having found
Wnlker proa in the street at tha end
of the bridg and still eonSaioul,
"I've been shot by a dirtv coward,''
Walker - told him, he testified, and a
little later the wounded man again
"I'm shot and I'm going to glory,"
)" had said then, the witness testified.

nd by other Inter witnesses. If de
veloped la the course of the testimony
that aoaio time before the ihooting an
attack kad been made on a daughter
of Theodore Richards, treasurer of the
Hawaiian Board Of Mission, at the
Richard' homo when the miscreant had

Basle testified. In connection with this
testimony the weapon, n nlekelled 88
e.llber revolver with two exploded car
tridges and three unexploded, wa pre
sented in evidence. With the testi
mony of this witness the prosecution
closed Its rase.
Witness For Daf sum
Father Valentin was the first witness
called for the defense. Wblle hi first
replies to question seemed of a nature
harmful to the defendant, additional
maiemenis probably gave them a par
ticular value ia bis favor. Father
Valentin said he had known Allen for
years and said he had first met Allen
in prison. Captain Allen, the priest
said, had been imprisoned ntttnber of
time in years pnat for drunkenness.
Ts this testimony the witness ndded,
however, that all of five years agt
Captain Allen had Wholly reformed and
had then Ongagod ia rescue work In the
very prison whers he himself ! iwu
held. He bad always bnen litai.
otic ad after his reformation he be
came an active churuh worker and "a
very straight man", tho witness said.
Another ('Inrrrmsn. It v.- AkaikA
Akaua, waa the next witness called.
He said he knew of rOacns work la the
prises Captaia Allen had performed
and this wituess also told of the de
femlant's activity in forwarding the
work of the Youag People's league.
Testimony of toe same kind setting
forth Captain Allan's good character
was given by the neat witness, Frank
Bcudder, a missionary,
Theodore Biuhards, whose house Cap
tain Allea waa to have guarded the
night of the shooting, then told of his
long acquaintance with Captain Allen.
They had been partner in an enter
prise, the wituess said, referring to the
work ot reforming "inwn .7
that' ClrptaU Allen had undertaken. At

Allan had between fty nnd sixty men

If th district board of the selective
draft stands fast in its refusal to vote
la favor of deferred classification la
tho aasa of Belwyn Aubrey Robinson,
registrant of Kaaai and son of Aubrey
Robinson, wealthy planter of that 11
ahd, a way ha been found to go over
ths head of the board and secure ex
emption from the President of tho Unl
tod States. Such was the report re
ceived St a session of the district bosrd
last night, a report that spurred tho
beard to immediate and determined
- Tho board Immediately decided to
determine whether or not this reported
counter has tangible quality by eabling
direct to the provost marshal general
Of ' the army at WfrshinRton, thresgu
thfl Governor of Hawaii, and this mes
sage will go forward today.
Ths board further decided thst in
order, to smoke out sll reason for tks
annsaal efort to secure ths exemption
from Classes 1 and 2 of the draft, and
t determine what influence, If any, in
Washington is being: brought to bear
npon tho President, the case of Belwyn
Robinson will be reconsidered and all
persons connected with the matter sub
poenaed before the board sometim
next week.
Would Destroy Moral
"TH entire morale of the draft-age
man Of the Territory of Hawaii will
be destroyed if justice is not done in
this ease," commented Percy M. Pond
a member of the board. '
-i The, reconsideration of the case is
merely to secure the widest ssd most
searching information bearing upon tho
saas that it is possible to obtain from
tho Robinson brothers, their father,
Aubrey Robinson, Francis Gay, who
carried fh appeal of Aylmer Robinson
t. Wailhlngtoa, and Attorneys Clarence
(Wsen and. Charles Chillingworth, these
nam being mentioned among those to
be "SSbpoenaed by Chairman J. A.
Bakh. .
' After fpll consideration of the mo
tion for reconsideration filed on behalf
of Selwya Robinson by Anbrey Robin
ssnt, Ja. pnd moved that the stair
man and secretary (-C. R. Hemenw.y)
f appointed a committee to take up
thls tnatterp to arrange for hearings,
procure . tk proper witnesses and e-
, cure information xrom the provost mar
shal general, Concerning the statement
'that tee district board's unanimous de
cisions bav been overruled. The mo
tirtn was adopted unanimously.
Will Do Tun Justice
"'We want to do full justice in this
;as as .wo hava given in all other
rases," said Chairman Batch.
The board felt that tinder all circum
stances oniy ths most complete record
should be compiled before the esse is
forwarded to Washington.- The report
ed statement that eves! though the
board waa anaairaons in, denying the
motion for reconsideration, a way
would be fonnd to "get around the
board's decision" wws discussed nt
'seme length, and because of this state
ment which had reached more than one
member of the board, the provost mar
shal will he reqseatod to wire if there
is any single instance where the selec
tive draft ktw haa bee a evaded by
powerful influence setting aside a unnn
imoos deeiavon f a district board. Un
til this information is received no uto
for the hearing will be set.
Frme! Oay, it is understood, will
srrive hero aext week, and if a meet
ing ia set for tha early part of tha
week, ha will be summoned by radio to
appear before the-board.
Motion Ta Roconsldar
Ths motion "for, reconsideration, cov
ering 'three or four typewritten pn(es
and signed lyr Aubrey Robinson, father
of Aylmer and - Selwyn Bobiniou, iu
substanoa, was a follows:
"Tie undersigned, Aubrey Robinson,
moves the board for a reoonsiderntion
of the said board, denying the claim
for deferred classification of Belwvn
Aubrsy Robinson, registrant, of Ma
kaweii, Kauai, -whose serial number is
40, and order number -29, . which said
decision was made on January 20. The
motion Is based upon the report in the
matter of the Claim for deferred clas
sification of aaid Salwvn Robinson, and
upon the further affidavit of John
Rennie, Edward Kahele and Aubrey
Kobinson, and also upon the decision
of the President of the United8tstc
in the matter of the classification of
Aylmer F. Kobinson, registrant of Ka
uai. "In support of this motion, the un
dersigned submits that the said deci
sion of the President of the Hnited
Ktotes in the matter of Ayhner Kobin
son is a precedent showinc that tho
said Selwyn Kobinson Is entitled to
deferred classification for the follow
ing reeaoss:
The said Aylmer Kobluson wim
classified In Class 20 by the President
f the UnTted ntstcs by reason of his
licine the manager of Makaweli Hunch
on Kauai; the said Makaweli Ram-h
maintains a herd of 1000 head and mar
kets upward of 200 kend of beef rat
tie for local consumption on Kuiiiii.
annually ;
"The said Helwrn Kobinson. is tl.c
manager of the Kiihau Bunch, islun l-of
Niihsu, which is almost entirely mm
Knglish speaking. It has a herd of
over 600 beef cattle, and many of the
nnest beef is tbo Territory of Hawaii.
and a herd of over 20,000 sheep, and

Hard to Get Manager
"It is therefore clear that ths Nil

ths Maksweli Ranch.
"On ncrount of the isolatioa of tbs

there would )ie greater difficulty

Boa-English speaking employes of tho
Niihsu Ranch. Thers would bo ths
additional difficulty of obtaining aa
other manager who would combine tho
ability of managing such a ranch with
the ability to speak the Hawaiian lair
guage the language of tks NilhaS
Ranch employes.
"While the ssid Aylmer Robinson
has been engaged as a ranch manshror
for a longer period of tims thantn
said Belwyn Kobinson, nevertheless tbs
said Belwyn Robinson Is clearly ec
potent and expert la ranching affairs,
oy reason oi tae fact that si ace boy
hood he has practically every year de
voted considerable time in nnd .boot
ths Nlihau Ranch, and befor boeosa

In addition he speak th Hawaiian
"As shown in the record ia tbo CSS
of Ssiwyn Robinson, the latter is also
assistant manager of the sugar plan
tation of Gsy and Robinson on Heuai,
and a such is necessary to tha suc
cessful conduct of said sngar planta
tion. ' .
Precedent Established
'"It is submitted that this honor
able board ha already established prec
edent entitling said Belwyn Rob i a son
to deferred claaaifieatioa by reason of
his position and occupation as said
aeaietant manager.' '
. "During ths last two months tha
manager of said sugar plantation Bia
elaic Robinson, hns been incapacitated
from attending to tbs manageMent of
said Makaweli plantation oa aeeonnt
sf sppendicltis nnd an .operation there
for, and that, in consequence, the, en
tire management haa fallen upon Bel
wyn Robinson. ... .
"The undersigned farther prays that
upon the reconsideration of said -dsci-sion
by this board the claim for OS'
ferred classification of said Belwyn.
Kobinson be allowed." ' " '-
Mr. Hemenway said that tbo only
course the board had to pursue was
to gsther from every source available
all the material facta upon which' It
could proreod with a rehearing.
An Unusual Case . ' .
Mr.' Pond Said be felt this was mors
thnu an average case. : If it was- da
cided in a certaiaway, it would be
certain to arouse a fooling ot bitter
iiv and of injustice.' The board, h
laid, should proceed thoroughly into
the case Snd exercise, the greatest
lure. He also aaid that he felt ths
granting of low classification i to all
th reo sons of Aubrey Robinson would
seriously impair tbs morale of the regi
iHtered men classed as .variable for
draft service. Hs referred tovaa iar
t ii nee of a man who married in J91C,
a year before the draft law Went Into
effect. Hs has a .'chrld, yet hs was
placed in Class 1. Tft Kauai board,
he 'had heard, made this classification
on the grouad that tJkS Wife eon hi
revert- to her . for rher occupation of
teaching school. In ths ease of the
Robinsons, they were unmarried, with
out ilepeodeste nnd. yet appeals bad
been mads on their behalf for low
i Is'-Hifli atlons.
Mr. Hemea way's suggestion that the
provost marshal' general bo requested
to in fur in tho board -whether tho se
lective draft lawr baa bee a changed
or amended to permit unanimous de
cisions of the- board to be appealed
over the decision waa adopted. Mr.
Crabbe raised the queition a to wheth
er there was e possibility of "strong,
powerful seuatora" bwiagiag such a
matter before th President.
"I don't think tbs President wiU
act asius tne law," said Mr. tiemen-.:
"l don't think tho Preaident would
tnke it up under a unanimous vote of
the board; I don't think Provost kiar-
; shal General Crowder would send such
a ruse to the President at all,'
Mr. i;rabbe.
