IT STOOD 7 TO Jury in the Case of Beck er Fails to Agree. Out for Four Hours Hopelessly Divided Old Glory Gets a Men tion in Circuit Court. In the foreign jury criminal case of the Republic vs. Becker, a Benning- ton bluejacket, the twelve men chosen to find a verdict, were unable to agree. It was charged that Becker some months ago stabbed a Chinese. The Pake was the chief witness and swore that the prisoner was the man who wielded the knife. The Chinaman re moved his shirt while on the witness stand and exhibited an ugly wound. Becker claimed that the hurt was in flicted by a Pake who struck at a sec ond bluejacket. A pretty straight story was told by the defendant, whose manner seemed truthful, lie bore a good reputation in the service. The Chinaman was insistent with his evi dence, however. Deputy Attorney General Dole was for the Government and Paul Neumann for the defendant. There was a glorious opportunity for the lawyers to yank tail feathers from the American eagle in their arguments yesterday morning, but they kept with in the bounds surprisingly well. Mr. Neumann made a careful little men tion of the man's calling and said he would like to see his client back where he could do good for his country again. Mr. Dole said that for himself he felt very much American just at this time, but that as a servant of the State he held it to be his duty to prosecute re gardless of star-spangled banner con siderations. The jury, of which L. C. Abies was elected foreman, went out at 11:30 in the forenoon. In a couple of hours they came in and told Judge Perry that they stood seven to five, with scarcely any prospect of return ing a verdict. Lunch was given them between 12 and 1. At 3:30 the judge sent for the men and asked point blank if there was any possibility of reach ing an agreement. The reply unani mous was that they could never get a result. The jury was then discharg ed and warned not to talk of their de liberations to other members of the panel. Becker may be given another trial and then again the case against him may be dropped. It is supposed that the vote of the wise dozen stood with the majority for acquittal. The choir of the Second Congrega tion of St. Andrew's Cathedral will meet this evening for practice. The Honolulu messenger service is now in running order under the man agement of D. G. Camarinos. Tele phone 378. A good many people have asked the Advertiser to call attention to constant violations of the road rules on princi pal thoroughfares by wheelman ?nd drivers of all kinds of rigs. There was a good, big, interested crowd at the Hawaiian hotel last ev ening for the concert by the Govern ment band. The musicians have their holiday today. Memorial Site. Now that it has been decided that the Carter memorial shall not stand on Union Square the question is, where shall it be placed. The joint com mittee of the Senate and House have the matter in hand and in a few days, will report the decision they have ar rived at. As yet, no choice of a new site, has been made. The committee from the Citizens' Guard conferred with the joint com mittee from the Senate and House on Wednesday and asked that they be al lowed the corner of the Executive Building grounds near the band stand on Richards and King for the memor ial. No answer was given, the com mittee preferring to deliberate care fully on the matter before making any decision. War in Native. Editor J. M. Poepoe, of the Kuokoa, will have out for the Gazette company today a first-class war editon of the native paper. There will be two pages, illustrated. Mr. Poepoe has worked hard since the Zealandia mail arrived picking out the best dispatches and translating them into Hawaiian. Thus the natives will be fully informed of the great struggle between the United States and Spain. The Hawaiians seem lately to have taken on a renewed in terest in the march or rush of affairs in foreign lands. The subscription list of the Kuokoa has grown and the sales of each issue of the paper have been very large. Ready Today. The B. F. Ehlers & Co. neonle have been busy the past few days opening up the large invoice of new goods that arrived by the Zealandia and other vessels. At a late hour last night the work was completed and Manager Dti Roi wishes to inform the ladies of Honolulu that everything is in readiness today for an inspection of the new importations, which in clude real and wash veils, shirt waists, silks, laces, lawns and organdies. A CQ L I K I X ( i i:.N (i LIS II. Six Chinese Yoiii.j; JMcn Arc Spreading Knowledge. But few people know of the move ment on the part of six ol the promi nent Chinese young men of the coun try toward the education and enlight enment of their brethren here on the Islands. The Chinese have always ' show much zeal toward the acquire- ment of knowledge of the English lan i gauge. The movement spoken of start ed on April 2Dth. After much deliber ation ana thought, the six young men, members of the Chinese Y. M. C. ipRSnn(S nn pnr.h mVhr of -thn wppU- ! Sunday and Wednesday excepted, in the rudiments of English, to all Chi i nese who had any desire to take ad- vantage of the opportunity. The les sons would be free of charge. About 17 answered the call and now the list has swelled to 57 while the actual at tendance is 40. This number promises to be twice as large- in a very short time. The six young men are among the brightest of the subjects of the Chi nese Emperor to be found in Hono lulu and have given up their pleasant evenings at home for the sole purpose of developing the intellectual power of those whom they claim as their coun trymen. The classes instituted are peculiarly advantageous to those who compose them as so much that is hard to ex plain is communicated directly in Chi nese. this giving a complete under standing of the subject in hand. Wide Tires in Minnesota. It wras demonstrated beyond question, savs. the Minneapolis Tribune, that wide tires keep the surface smooth and firm, and that when the roads are full of ruts the broad wheels tend to re store them to good condition and thus materially lessen the cost of repairs. The universal adoption, of the wide tire in Minnesota for all vehicles carrying heavy loads would save the taxpayers of the State thousands of dollars an nually in road repairs and would save the farmers and teamsters ten times the amount in expense of hauling and wear and tear of horses and vehicles.
