IN A LIBEL CASE Expected That Forty Wit nesses Will Be Called. Fatal Gift of Beauty a Factor-In-terpretei Peculiar Relations of Two Well Known Lawyers. The libel case now on in Circuit Court on appeal from the District Ma gistrate of Honolulu is occupying the time of a goodly company of people and from the present outlook will hold the boards for quite a period. It is said that there will be more than forty witnesses in all. Quite a num ber of these are from the Island of Kauai, including the Sheriff of that district. This case is titled the Republic vs. Edmund Norrie and Win. Horace Wright. Defendants are alleged to have published "falsely, maliciously, etc.," statements concerning the treat ment of laborers on Lihne plantation. The jury was secured on Thursday evening and the lawyers made their opening presentations yesterday morn ing. Then the first witness for the State was called. Initial evidence for the prosecution comes from a woman wife of the laborer imprisoned and j subsequently released through a legal technicality. One claim of the defense is that a luna who was infatuated with this woman on account of her beauty conspired to get her husband .out of the way. There was trouble m get ting an interpreter. Capt. C. Y7. Zeig ler was called and officiated for a time. He was satisfactory to the State and one of the jurors said that the work was good enough for anybody. The defense did not like the captain's style and had him excused. Mr. Lange of E. Hoffschlaeger & Co., was then secured. At evening the woman was still on the stand. It is questioned if her fatal gift of beauty which aroused the chivalry of Messrs.. Wright, Noriie and Sellner of the Press and Messrs. Creighton and Gear of the law, will have the same effect on the jury. Mr. Kinney, attorney for the State, does not seem impressed unduly by it. At torney Creighton, on the contrary, is of well known gallantry and it is no ticed that he is putting up the legal battle of his life. It's funny how these lawyers are first on one side and then on the other. Some ultra-good people might inti mate that they could possibly be open, at times, to the indictment of insin cerity. Mr. Kinney is now for the said-to-be libelled and Mr. Creighton for the paper. In a few days there will be another suit of this same class with Kinney for the paper and Creigh ton on behalf of the said-to-be libelled. Kinney and Creighton have grown up together in Honolulu and before the Courts of Hawaii. Their relations just at present need not estrange them at all. In all likelihood it will simply weld their friendship. Both common interest and utility suggest this and it is not at all probable that legal ethics will be violated. .When they get through with the present case they can just exchange papers, refer ences, etc., and can even have Steno grapher Jones transcribe the notes of thpir remarks and swan sheets. In the coming case Kinney can read what Creighton has maintained for the liberty of the Press and people and Creighton can repeat, without it losing any force or application, what Kinney now says about the bad writ ers and their inaccuracies and their general worthlessness and unreliabili ty as viewed from the standpoint of the injured. A CUTTER OF CLOTHING. Not a Tailor and a Serious Result Follows. E. Dunbar, at one time a member in good standing of the Mounted Pat rol and now a hackman, was convict ed in Circuit Court yesterday on trial for malicious injury. It was a rather unusual case. C. C. Conley, also an ex-horse policeman and Dunbar, were room-mates. Conley was also a cab bie. Some trouble arose between the pair, but for reasons known only to themselves they failed to resort to a settlement by force. Going to the quarters of the pair a few hours after the row. Conley found that some one had been "doing all kinds of things," as he says, to his wardrobe. His reserve clothing was cut and slashed and torn worse than a sugar mill or a harrow could do the job. Conley hastened to the police station with the com plaint that Dunbar had made the raid on the clothing. Mention was also made to Colonel Fisher that Dunbar had not even spared a suit of N. G. H. cut. color, material, trimmings, etc. Dunbar was arrested and the case came before a jury yesterday. Deputy Attorney-General Dole prosecuted and Paul Neumann was for the defense. The examination of witnesses for both sides was concluded just in time to properly or correctly adjourn for lunch. During the noon hour Mr. Neumann suddenly became so ill that he was unable to return to Court and sent word to that effect. In view of this fact the attorney for the Republic expressed willingness to submit the case to the jury without argument and the defendant agreed. A verdict of guilty was returned for the jury by Foreman A. E. Murphy. The judge stated that Dunbar would not be sen tenced until Attorney Neumann could be in Court. CKIML AT IIILO. .M n Known iicrc Charged With a Cruel Deed. The authorities here have been no tified of an attempt at Hilo to com mit a most cruel and revolting crime. The frightful effort was against the life of an infant. That the one with murder in heart did not succeed but was an accident. The person accused is Geo. H. Ruttman, who has been in Hilo over two years and who married at that place. He is quite well known here. Ruttman is charged with trying in the most cruel fashion to end the life of a baby but a few hours old. It is in the information from the police department branch at Hilo that the fellow narrowly escaped summary and violent punishment at the hands of ! citizens. There was a threat to lynch Ruttman. He was saved by officers. It is stated that Ruttman threw the infant, before it had received any of the attentions usually given the new born, down into the vault of an out house. The crying of the little child was heard by a native neighbor. The native told some haoles and an inves tigation was made. There was a prompt rescue of the infant and it at once had such attention that it is now doing well. Ruttman came to the Isl ands in the latter part of 1S94. It was said that he was well connected in the States. For a time he was with the extra Mounted Patrol and held a lieu tenancy in the command. He violated the rules and was dismissed. Next he was sent to jail on a suit brought by a hotel keeper and remained in prison for some time. Finally he went to Hilo. Electric Stoves. While on the Coast recently Theo. Hoffman, manager for the Hawaiian Electric Company, placed an order for a consignment of novelties and the goods came by the Zealandia. In the office at the works now may be seen electric cook stoves, bath heaters, chafing dishes, immersion coils, sub stitutes for hot water bottles and bags and the tailor's goose by the flock. Heat is secured direct from the common current. The stoves, etc., are fitted with fine resistance coils and heat in a few seconds.- Mr. Hoffman is quite a cook himself and in showing his electrical goods yesterday turned out an omelette in five minutes from a cold start. He also took the desper ate chance of preparing a beaf steak Spanish on the electric stove. The ovens, which are pronounced a great success, are yet to come. The bath heaters are popular already and will have a big sale. The heavy coil is nickel plated. It will bring a tub of water to the right temperature in a very few minutes. Perhaps the most unique affair in the whole exhibit is the substitute for the water bags. This is a pliable pad containing a battery or coil of fine wjres. It is set and the current turn ed on. In a couple of seconds the result is all that could be desired. If Bilmartin was here now he wrould want to have a pair of presentation shoes made out of the material. Basket Ball. The second two of the series of games of the basket ball tournament were played in the gymnasium of the Y. M. C. A. last night. In the first game the Diamond Heads won over the Ho nolulus by a score of 5 to 4. The sec ond game was just as close, the Pacifies besting the Y. M. C. A.'s by a score of 2 to 1. Both games were very hard fought and the play was very exciting at times. BOCK BEER Is a treat indeed. That's delicious beer for you. As delightful as any one will ask for. Brewed in the early fall, of earefully selected hops and malt. Of mature age and double strength. Have you tried it at the Criterion Saloon? It's just the right tempera ture. PERSONAL MENTION. G. B.
