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
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
A CUTTER OF CLOTHING.
Not a Tailor and a Serious Result
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
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.
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
