HALL & SON, Ld. Corner Fort & King Sts. Hamakua Plantation, Paauilo, Hawaii, H. I. Mr. J. G. Spencer, Pacific Hardware Co., Honolulu. Dear Sir: The Secretary Disc Plow I pur chased from you is giving us satisfaction. We are using it to plow under a crop of lupins. They are three feet high and very thick. Your plow turns them completely under, at the same time plowing the land fourteen inches deep. I feel satisfied that with this plow the draft for the same quantity and depth of work is as 6 to 8. That is, with the old plow, to do the same work, it takes 8 good mules; with your plow it takes only 6, and they are less tired at night. Please send me another plow by first schooner leaving for this. . You are at liberty to use this in any way you may see fit. . Yours truly, A. LIDGATE. ROBERT CATTON, 212 Queen Street, Honolulu.

REPAIRS PROMPTLY ATTENDED TO. Read th rr t e Hawaiian f ..V f T TEL. 410. o Gazette Associate Justice Whiting is the author of a unanimous decision of the Supreme Court that records here new opinion on the matter of evidence. T.iis is the syllabus: "Subject to the Constitutional priv ilege of a witness to refuse to answer questions, the answers to which may tend .to criminate hirn, he may be cross-examined with reference to iais past life, if such matters tend to weak en his credibility, though they might tend to criminate, disgrace or degrade the witness. "The extent to whjch disparaging questions, not relevant to the issue, may be put on cross-examination, is discretionary with the trial court, and its rulings are not subject to review, unless it appears that the discretion was abused." The case is that of Henry Lulling, a boy now serving sentence in Oahu pris:n and a new trial is ordered, thus overruling the Circuit Court. The chief witness for the State had been a. party to the crime committed by Luning. On cross-examination this witness was asked wlaere he had se cured money which he stated had been in his possession and was enjoined to "tell the truth." His reply was that he had stolen the cash. He was then questioned along a line that might be said to presume him to be an habitual chief. There was objection and the Presiding Judge would not permit the question. In the course of the cross- examination there was one other in-. stance of the same sort. The Supreme Court holds that the Trial Judge should have, under the circumstances as they appear in the record, allowed these inquiries. It is cited that a wit ness should ocme into Court prepared to defend an assault of an ordinary character against his credibility. It is further argued or shown that "past life" is an important consideration in establishment of the worth of testimo ny given by any witness. Luning's at torneys were J. 'A. Magoon and R. D. Silliman. Deputy Attorney-General Dole appeared for the Government. Luning lias been in prison since Aug. 7, 1897. He was sentenced by Judge Car ter to serve tihree years at hard labor and has been in one of the road gangs ever since. Luning is a mere boy in years, but is of good size and is strong and healthy. He has a mother and brother in town. 'Hop" in the Swim. A Klondike correspondent of the San Francisco Chronicle gives quite a men tion to Ed. Hopkins, formerly proprie tor of the Arlington Billiard Parlors here and before that a police captain. "Hop" has a saloon at Rampart City. The Chronicle man speaks of "Hop" as making cocktails for all comers and using a native liquor, conde'nsed milk and concentrated eggs. It is aston ishing that a Chronicle man should fall into the error of saying that milk and eggs are used in cocktails on the Klon dike or elsewhere. They don't make them that way even in Sydney. The correspondent indicates that "Hop" is doing well, a probability which will be at once accredited here. "Hop" may be depended upon to introduce many in novations in Rampart City, but there are too many Americans up there for him to be serving makeshift egg nogg as the Washington appetizer. Back From Kauai. Representative Kaeo is back from the Garden Isle, having been there some ten days attending to business and conferring with his constituents on various points of interest to them. He reports the very finest kind of weather on Kauai, and says that the people in the districts where damage was done by the recent storm, have risen to the occasion and have repaired as much of 'the damage as it was possi ble for them to do. Representative Kaeo was back in his seat in the House yesterday morning as was evidenced by his usual "ku-e." Police Court. In the Police Court yesterday Alfred Roche was discharged on the charge of assault and battery. R. Duchalsky was found guilty of assault and battery on G. Harrison and fined $10 and costs. Kainuwai was fined $23 and costs for assault and battery on Kahikilani (w). Ah Sing was reprimanded on the charge of common nuisance. Tennis Prizes. G. P.
