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

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.

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.

! 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.
