ent The question before us is whether or
not there has been a contempt No one
listening to this testimony can come to any
other conclusion concerning what hanoaned
in the Journal office than tSat some Ww
in error, but whether this statement was
made or not, this fact is known, that it was
published in open court and therein was
the wrong. That riew of the situation re
lieves us from passing on the question as
to whether or not Leary or Tarbel swore
falsely. As far as human judgment
can be epplied this statement was put
in the affidavit for the purpose of
influencing the court. It is true that many
authorities hold that intent is necessary to
make contempt. We shall apply the stat
ute of Celifornia to this case, which holds
that good intent is no justification. |t may
palliate but doee not excuse the offense. It
may be that Mr. Lewis acted in good faith
without any intention to do wrong and we
aooept his exsuse in palliation of the of
fense. As to Mr. Leary, he is not in oon
tempt Conceding that he did make
remarks, he was not in court and was not
responsible to the court for what ha may
have said at that time. This leaves as then
to deal with the two other respondents. We
accept the apology of Mr. Lewis as to both,
but the punishment of contempt to the
superior court of King county can not
be neglected. It is not dons because
it would please the judge, but, on the con
trary. it is extremely unpleasant We ad
jadge Tarbel guilty of contempt, and im
pose a fine of |5 and costs. In the dbse of
Mr. Lewis, who inadvertently permitted
this, the responsibility is greater and upon
him the harden of lew mtist fall more
heavily. The object is to vindioate the law.
We therefore adjudge him guilty of oon
tempt of court and will say in that finding
that it was not intentional His fine will
be |25 and he will share his portion of the
The crowd of interested spectators then
dispersed, the courtroom was almost de
serted and the interesting Tarbel contempt
case had at last reached its climax.
THB KBBTZLXB CAB^
At the conclusion of the Lasry-Tarbel
oontempt eaae, the caae of Mrs. Kentsler
or Tompkins was called. Her answer was
raid, which sets forth her reasons for dis
obeying the order of the court. She stated
that her object and purpose in removing
her children from the care and custody of
Joseph Kentsler was because they were
not provided with proper food and cloth
ing and booauae they were forood to live in
a filthy hovet She says Kentsler kicked
and mistreated the children, and her
mother's anxiety prompted her to take her
little ones away from his care.
Judge Lich ten berg said: "Wecanreadfiy
conceive that this answer raises an issue
somewhat out of the ordinary. It would
have to be a vtty severe case in which we
would punish a mother tor taking her own
children. I presume that ao one but a
mother can know a mother's feelings. This
woman came all the way from Montana,
enduring the hardships and trials of the
trip, for the purpose of seeing her children,
but she committed a wrong in forcibly
taking these children away. How, as to
the extent of the wrong we are to pass
upon. We believe it was prompted by her
maternal instincts." Then, tarning to the
mother, who sat with one of her little ones
on her knee and the other by her side, he
said; "We desire to impress upon yoa,
madam, that you must not put yourself in
oontempt again, or yoa will get in trouble."
The court adjudged Millid Kentxer guilty
of contempt, and ordered thst she be dis
charged upon payment of costs. On being
informed that she had no means to pay
costs she was permitted to go without hav
ing to pay cost 9.
The children were placed in the care of
the Children's home, and will be provided
for there, pending the action of the su
preme court in the case.

answer Sneli stated that his wife had be

balance had been paid to Reed A Smalley

he had none of the money in his possession

A BEET SUGAR REFINERY.
The Practical Suggestion of Mr. Fred
Ward, Representing Capital.
The plan of starting a sugar refinery
here is assuming tangible form. Mr. Fred
Ward, cashier of the Seattle National
bank, is pushing the scheme. He will pro
pose that the Chamber of Commerce raise
$200,000 for tbe enterprise. Hawaiian capi
talists will contribute another $200,000, and
Mr. Ward will guarantee another $200,000
from capitalists. The idea is to operate in
connection with the American sugar re
finery of San Francisco.
During the summer Hon. A. P. Carter,
the Hawaiian minister at Washington
City, was in Seattle and expressed a will
ingness to put moner into a sugar refinery
here; and other Honolulu planters, Mr.
Carter believes, would subscribe heavily.
Mr. Ward says: "It would take six
months to get the organization properly
perfected, and six months longer to put it
in operation. By that time we would have
our transcontinental railway lines com
pleted to Seattle, and would be in position
to handle the business. Seattle would of
fer better facilities than San Francisco, on
account of short hauls."
Mr. Ward bas already been carrying

The above is a list of those who have
purchased home sites in
Tou are invited to examine the list care
fully and draw your own conclusions.
Many have already built handsome homes
and Benton addition is already recognised
as the most desirably located and choicest
residence district in the city. Nearly all of
the streets are being graded and side*
walked and no cjtber residence portion of
the city has shown anything like such
marked improvement during the past year
as has Benton addition. We venture the
prediction that twelve months hence Ben*
ton addition will contain more handsome
residences than any other portion of beat
tie. Nature has made it the Nob Hill of
the city and the public is not slow to recog
nise the fact and to act upon it.
There is still an opportunity to make de
sirable selections at present prices, as there
are still a few choice lots on the market.
When tbese are sold no more will be of
fered for a year at least Those intending
to make selections should not delay. Many
were disappointed when the first 100 lots
were sold last year and many moije will
regret this year tbat they hare procrasti
nated whan tike last of the lots are so^L
Title and Terms
The title is perfect. E very purchaser re
ceives a fall warranty deed from Captain
William Ren ton and an abstract of title.
Lots are 60x130 feet in size.
Terms are either cash, or half cash and
half in one year, or one-third cash, one*
third In one year and one-third in two
years to suit purchasers.
