BEER OH ABOUT SIGHT Evidence Presented on Good Rehearing Request. Stone an Interesting Witness Ob servations Seem to Differ-Story Given By Carl Rhodes. Last night was the third meeting of the Court of Inquiry in the case of John Good. The Court was not called to order until about 7:43 o'clock. Carl Rhodes, the first witness, gave the following testimony: Remember my father, H. J. Rhodes, showing me a cannon sight. This was at the Govern ment Nursery in one of the large sheds. Had heard that he had trieu io get something off one of the guns to show that he had been where the guns were, my mother told me. This was n May of 1S96. Mentioned the fact to Dr. Anderson, the denti.-t. This was two weeks after the sight was shown to me. It was prior to the arrest of Captain Good. The sight shown me was bright and clean. Captain Good had called at my house before the ar rest, generally in the evening. ( My father usually met him on the front porch when he called. My father was friendly with Captain Good. My father called on him occasionally. E. K. Stone Was a member of Co. F for 14 months, from 1S95 to 1S9G. Remember noticing one of the sights off one of the large guns. Heard some of the boys say "Now Gumpher is in a pilikia." We were cleaning out the hallway one day when one of the locks and staples dropped from a locker on the mauka side. One of the fellows picked the staple up and shoved it into the hole with the lock. The witness Stone Was frank to say the least. He told of how he had been given a discharge on account of having broken liberty, then of the fun he and others were always having while at work. He stated, w:ith a simle on his face, that he had been relieved from the Custom House force because of sleeping on duty. J. W. Chapman "Shortly after Weatherby's discharge I had a con versation with him. I said 'Well Jack you are discharged.' He answered 'Yes, and after all I have done for the Col onel.' " I told him he had been given every chance in the world. He an swered 'If it hadn't been for me Cap tain Good never world have been fired. I am the only man who got Good out of a job.' " J. McKeague I v. as a sergeant in the regulars. The last two inspections I made of the guns previous to leaving here, I beleive the sights were on the guns. Good spoke to me about giving evidence. Camara tocrk my statement down in writing. I understood he was Good's attorney. Don't remember see ing a sight in Colonel McLean's office. Madeira Saw sights on all the guns. This was after the cholera. Charles Wagner Used to belong to Co. F. Remember a sight being missing from one of the guns. I reported the sight missing to Dahlstrom. I was a private in the company. Sergeant Dahlston Have been in Co. F nearly five years. Had charge of the large field pieces in the shed. Remem ber hearing talk about a missing sight. Don't remember lock falling off the door. Charles Lubeck WTeatherby broke open the locker in which the extra sights were kept. I gave him a bayonet. He shoved it in and drew the staple. At 10:15 o'clock the Court adjourned until 7:30 o'clock tonight. Rattled Representative. At the afternoon session of the House yesterday, four of the members were absent. This gave the so-called big salary men a majority for the first time. They started in to take advan tage of the situation. Motions by which a number of reductions had been made were reconsidered and the figures placed at the Senate sums. Kahau Ielio became angry because some thing he wanted was refused. He made a sharp remark to Isenberg. Mr. Isen berg moved to adjourn. This was car ried with some of the affirmative vo ters thinking they were voting for re consideration of an item in the attor ney general's salary list. The after noon session lasted only about five minutes and a beautiful opportunity for legislative maneuvering was lost. The New Commissioner. Byron O. Clark, the recently appoint ed Commissioner of Agriculture, has begun to put his office into shape. In gathering together various pamphlets and books scattered about the room he found some very valuable treatises on coffee, tea, cacao, rubber, etc., which he has placed with easy reach of any one entering the office. He wishes it stated that those who desire may call in at any time and use these pamphlets and books, information A vat fund of valuable i.s contained in thee. R A PI DLY D I S A PPEAR I X G.
