o WITNESSES OP DEFENSE HEARD, Ycsrg Weed Tells What Ha Knows Conspiracy. Coilraior it I'rw latemut 11 Covcroiutot Ket It Ce Irhl UlUbCttck ami Captain 1'irkerua th StadKvideace Probably all In Txljr The morning evidence of the conspir acy case yesterday was raiber listless. Capiain Robert Parker, senior captaiu of the police was the first witnes3 called. The captain wa3 one of the best witnesses that baa thus far been put on the stand, notwithstanding Lawyer Ashfortl's part ing shot that he knew the least of what went on in the police department of any senior csptain he ever saw. This, how ever, was only one of the pleasantries the defense accords every witness. Captain Parker stated he was ac quainted with the three defendants, Bosh, Crick and Kawahi; also knows Osmer, Crick had been living in a house on liliha street; Parker had searched the house, in company with the mar3hal ; they found foar riiies, two pistols and some ammunition; three of the titles were hidden beneath the floor in Crick's room, and the fourth was behind tne bureau in the room occupied by Nan Giesen; one of the revolvers was in Crick's drawer, the other in Van Gie ren's; the ammunition was beneath the floor with the guns. The revolvers were produced and identified. The one owned by Crick was loaded when found; that owned by Van Giesen was not. The rifles were also brought to the court room and iden tified. Captain Parker had furnished Osiner with a rifle. This was done to aid him in discovering where the arms were se creted ; only one gun was given him for this ourpoe. This was identified. Us mer had been working under hisdirec tion with the approval of the marshal. Bosh's place was searched Sunday morning, tae 9th of December; nothing was found downstairs; Mrs Bush gave Captain Parker & pistol. The defense objected to questions leading to the re hearsal of the conversation with Mrs. Bush, as that was only hearsay, and did cot bear directly on the case. The Attorney-General did not press the ques tion. Parker first saw the seven guns in question at the station house on Satur day niht, the Sth of December. These with the other guns had been in the possession of the marshal since that time. The cross-examination openrd with searching questions as to how Parker knew the place on Liliba street was Crick's home, lie had seen Crick com ing and going to and frcm the house; h knew the room designated as Cnck's room was occupied by that man, because the woman in the "house told him so; did not knur the woman's name, and cad not ben there since; only one bu rean was noticed in Crick's room; did net kno win took the guns, and the pistols to the place, and did not know whix thev were information as to who occupied the rooms. lid not expect to And the guns under the floor; thoogat they were buried, iiad no direct information as to the exact place the guxis were secret ed. Had no difliculty in raiting the boards of the ri xr. " The guns were found lying on the cross timbers, and couM not hare been put here from the outside. The Marshal admitted bringing away a number of letters found about the place, but refused to say why he took them. After considerable discussion on the subject in which the Attorney-General said he was willing the witness should stare the reason, Mr. Hitchcock said he could only give a woman's les son, "because I did." Mr. Ash ford asked that the papers be returned a soon as possible. At this point the prosecution an nounced that it had no more witnesses to bring forward. Mr. Ashford asked for hve minutea recess and held a consulta -tion with Lawyer Creighton. He then announced that he was somewhat sur prised that the prosecution rested at this point and a 11 o'clock asked for a recess to 1:20 p. zn. Afternoon Settiun. 31r. Ashford informed the Court that he would put a number of witnesses to prove that McAvoy has been a spy. He would endeavor to show that Van Gie sen's statements about the map, list and plans were false. In reference to Na wahi, the statement of McAvov was alje alo, according to his statement. Harry on erthen was then called for the defense. He said he had been in it t . uonomm aoout mree-and-a-na't years; he knew McAvoy, Wilcox and the de fendants ; he attended a luau at Wilcox's house tome time in January; at that time th witness knew that McAvov was employed as a Government spy ; Leigh Irvine, a newspaper correspondent, ac cused McAvoy of being a spy; this was done in the presence of witness ; Crick was at the luau ; ha did not know if the defendant was informed of McAvoy's occupation. The witness said that Bush knew McAvoy 'a character. Cross-examined : . Von Werthen ad mitted that he had been employed in the secret service ; this was duringlast year; he believed that be was employed in the Government's secret service when the luau referred to took place; he met McAvoy prior to the time when the luau was given; he met McAvoy at Mrs. Batchelor's one evening. In regard to the statement be made in his direct ex amination he admitted that his testimony was mostly hearsay. A. Sinclair said that he knew Bush. met him in December, lSyj, when be engaged a room at his house; Crick was living there at the time ; McAvoy's room was in front, while Crick a was m the rear; McAvoy stayed there until about two months ago; h went to Bush's house and told him that McAvov was a spy; this was in January; he informed Crick also; the witness overheard a con versation between Tim Murray and McAvoy; Murray called to see McAvoy to inform him to report for orders to the Marshal; this was early in January; he then told Bush and Crick of the conver sation. John Bowler knew McAvoy by sight. lie eaid that he called at Bush a house, in company with Irvine, early in Feb ruary; Irvine then told Bush that Mc Avoy was a spy; the witness told Crick, night. He went both times for a drink and not for arms. On Friday Osmer asked him again lor the money, saving be had to pay $15 or tl before 4 o'clock the next day or else he would have to leave town as Davton was pressing him for the money, lie spoke a?ain of offer ing the gun as wvurity. TN witness related how he was arrested at steiner's. Croes-ifxamind, Osmer spoke rapidly and said that h was opposed to the Attorney-General and the Marshal also. He claimed that he could control about half of the men at the barracks anl at the revolution he could disable the gu&3. Osmer also stated that he had giant pon der in his possession with which to bio up the palace. He talked in this strain very freelv while the witness and he were in the Merchants' Exchange saloon. The witness said that he did not repeat this conversation to any one because it was none of his "hash." He did not care if the Government was overthrown or how many people were killed as long as he was not injured. Crick had talked to the witness about using force to over throw the Government. When Osmer said that he would leave the gun at the saloon, the witness made no reply. The next day they talked about the loan again. Osmer oflered a note a3 security for the money in addition to handing over the gun. " He knew Osmer for some time but did not hear him use any trea sonable language until after he was dis charged frcm tee police station. The Court adjourned until 9:30 Uis lacrninkT. Zimmermann, the celebrated American wheelman, will probably pas3 through here in March, on his way to Australia, where he has been invited to participate in the coming races. BYAUTHOKITY.

Robert Wilcox eaid that last January he gave a luau at Waikiki : Crick was previous to the search, I present at the time: McAvov came with wnich win n-aJe at the marshal's insti- gat'.on: the search was made on Mon day. I he witness had had no conversa tion with Osnaer regarding the evidence to t given in this caso, and had made hinjnoctfer tf money or position; did not ee Van Giesen on the nicht of Crick's arrest; did not know why he as not arrested; had not heard that Van Giesen had been arrested as he was about to board the steamer for Molokai. The cross-examination closed and Marshal Hitchcock was sworn as a wit ness. The marshal testified that he had seen the guns from Eush'1!ace before, and that they had been in his keeping since the Sth of December; those from the Crick house came in the following Wednesday; all had beea in his pos session since being brought to the sta tion house; h went with Captain Par ker when Crick's house was being searched. The story of rinding the guns corroborated Captain Parker's state ments. The revolvers and ammunition were iiWntiried as those found at the Li liha houe. Van Giesen has been in the employ of the Government iccrtt service sicca November. 1S9 1. the work assigned him was watching thoee who needed to le watched. The witness could not her that Weed was included in this number. Van Giezen reported usully in wr.ting, sometime in erscn. Mc Avoy as b-rn in the Marshal's employ since March, ISO I, and has been contin ual I employed tinre tiret engaged. J n the cross examination the defense wanted to know why after Van Giesen reported tha conversation of Bush and others on August ?'.'d arrtsts were not then made, the Marshal did nut con sider that he had tutlicient evidence to make au airet. Van Gi;en had re ported other talk of the defendants. Never stated that he had Ikh-ii discov ered. McAvoy reported t he meeting at Bush's place in August and another in September. He has never reported he was suspected, but hid paid the defend ants were very e'ese mouthed. This wan in September. The search warrant made by the Mar thai when Crick's premUes were search ed was produced anil identified. Mar shal did not know how many vuus there were on the premises. Had he?n told there were three and probably more. Had not had any talk with Van Gie.-eo before the search. The last inform Uion from Van (i-H-n was about a week i re vioua to that time, tie said there wrre four or live guns in the house and told where they w.re. Had i.o information concerning gun behind the bmeau. Van Giesen wm not at the hon- when the warcU was made. lUu never be n taken iuto custody. The search was made in the afternoon after Parker got through with the Court business. At this point the dfen aked that the search warrant be put in evidence. He then called the Marshal's attention to the fact that the form was the sams aa that used during the monarchy. The questioning was then resumed. When tne Marshal vent to the premises ttw only persons there were & halt white fir I and a Japanese woman. He re viewed the Incidents ot the search. He knew which room was c.rim nnw tmm what tbe woman told. Had no direct him; Leigh Irvine, of the Examiner. told him that McAvoy was a spy; he, in turn, informed Bush and Nawawi; he did not tell Crick. Arthur McDowell knew McAvoy, and recited an incident that took place in Lindsa 's jewelry store. A man named Marchant brought McAvoy in the store to introduce him to the proprietor, but Mr. Lindsay refused to talk to McAvoy, intimating that he was a spy. George Kaneau test! tied that he worked at Bush's otlice. Ho met Van Giesen on last Monday night about 5 o'clock, and had a conversation with him in the Ha waiian language. Van Giesen told him that he could clear Bush if all the blame co.ild be placed on Crick. The witness drew the inference that he wanted this statement to be repeated to Bush. J. M. Punini said that ho was em ployed by Bush as a reiorter. He knew Van Giesen and Crick. There was a desk for Crick in the otlice of the paper. He did not see Crick holding a map during the last few months. He did not hear Bush or Nawahi request natives to sell or mortgage their property and buy guns. J. Prendagast testified that he was em ployed on Bush's paper. Gn Saturday's, that leing Bush's c-abbath, the place is closed up, and no one is allowea to en ter. Ho saw Van Giesen about the place. Since October Nawahi has not called at the office many times. He quit working for Bush the latter part of September. Van Giesen severed his i-onnvction with the pujer about two weeks earlier. Bush let him out be cause he was not conducting the paper properly. He did not at any time see a conference between Bithh, Crick, Nawahi and Van Giesen. After Van Giesen rait work the witness did not see him again until cah'ed for a microscoje. He heard no Iolitical discussions on Saturday's. He did not ted Crick with a map of Hono lulu in conference with others. He knew McAvoy, and had heard him re ferred to as a spy. Bush and Nawahi were lotli informed of this by the wit ness. Weed, one of the defendants, was put on the Hiaiid. Said he was 4 years of age; was employed at the Golden Ku!o Bazaar, lie has known Osmer nince February. The witness remembered feeing him in the Merchants Kuchnge saloon. He met Crick in the saloon and told him that t ere were souie p.ters at the More for him.
