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.

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. Wilder has offered two silver
cups as prizes for the winners in the
men's doubles in the tennis tournament
to take place in June. They ar.e now
on show in the window of the Pacific
