AH APPEAL TO DE TAKEN Opinion on Memory Tests Deal With Crandall Cited -- Heavy Property Interests. In a brief and crisp opinion, Circuit Judge Perry hands down the verdict that John K. Sumner is non compos mentis within the meaning of the law. While the decision covers but a few pages of typewriting, there is a point in every phrase and every sen tence of the document. The case has been contested in a very determined manner. Judge Perry reviews com pletely the business and personal life of Sumner for the last three or four years and argues that the events cited establish the incapability of the aged and wealthy Hawaiian. Sumner is 77 years of age. His most notable pos session is an undivided one-half in terest in the reef property at Hono lulu harbor, including Quarantine Isl and. Judge Perry gives an account of the transaction by which Crandall be came attorney in fact for Sumner un der most peculiar circumstances and refers to the lease of the Island in terest, to the recent mortgage and note affairs involving transfer of all the property to Mrs. Sumner, a note for a large sum to a Chinese rioe planter, an effort to go into the rice business under peculiar conditions and lastly is mentioned the prominence of such new friends as Robt. Wilcox and wife in the affairs of Sumner. The Court makes strong the point that while Sumner has at the tip of is tongue details of all kinds of happenings twenty and thirty and more years ago, his memory fails on the subject of recent dealings. This is taken as a sign of failure of mind or weakening of intellect to the extent that war rants intervention by the Court. Judge Perry concludes that he will appoint a guardian for Sumner, giving time for nomination and argument in the mat ter. The petition to ha. j Mr. Sumner de clared non compos mentis was filed by Maria S. Davis through Attorneys Kinney & Ballon and J. A. Magoon. The lawyers for the respondent were W. It. Castle and P. L. Weaver. Maria S. Davis is the sister of John K. Sum ner. An appeal to the Supreme Court will be taken from Judge Perry's de cision. O' WOMAN'S EXCHANGE. Thirty-Two Regular Depositors Receiving Benefits. At the regular monthly meeting held May 4th by the Board of Directors of the Woman's Exchange, the annual report of the Treasurer for the year ending April 2d, 1S0S, was read, from whic the following interesting facts are taken: "There are 32 regular depositors re ceiving weekly benefits and fully as many more who are receiving employ ment in various ways from the Ex change. "Donations received for the year were from two individuals amounting to eleven dollars, and the neat little sum of $2916.S0 has been paid to de positors who are about ninety per cent. Hawaiians. "We notice great improvement in their work, and a growing interest in the Exchange among them. "Thanks are due to the public for their liberal patronage, also to the many friends who. have cheered us by word or deed throughout the year past. "An effort will be made to be move helpful in the coming year. "We have a strong desire to increase our manager's salary and lower our commissions at the earliest possible moment. "We hope to merit an increased patronage, and would appeal for a continuation of the same so generous ly bestowed us in the past." Bad management keeps more people in poor circumstances than any other one cause. To be successful one must look ahead and plan ahead so that when a favorable opportunity presents itself he is ready to take advantage of it. A little forethought will also save much expense and valuable time. A prudent and careful man will keep a bottle of Chamberlain's Colic, Chole ra and Diarrhoea Remedy in the house, the shiftless fellow will wait until ne cessity compels it and then ruin his best horse going for a doctor and have a big doctor bill to pay, besides; one pays out 25 cents, the other is cut a hundred dollars and then wonders why bis neighbor is pettins: richer while he is getting poorer.

Drllllant Driving Ey Roth and Wilder Kircals Will Bo on Monday Next. The courts of the Pacine znl te tania tennis clubs wtre again well at tended yesterday, the occasion being the second day's matches in the annual tournament. As the games proo'fd. the outcome, is looked forward to vith more and more interest. The inferior players are becoming weeded cat gradually through the operation t.f the law of the survival of the fitto:-.. Matches will be played on the ecu i ts of the Pacific and Beretania clubs tbi? afternoon. On Saturday afternoon there will be but four players in the field as a result of today's p?ay. Ihe finals then in singles v.i'il be r!-?.yed on Monday. What courts are to be used will be decided by toss JaUi on. The result of yesterday's play and the courts which the matches vne played will be found below: Pacific Courts E. Tt. Adam??, P. T. C. , vs. H. Waterhouse, P. T. C, 'ven by Adams with a score cf G-4, '--; Wilder Wight, P. T. C. Jnnkr, v. Willie Roth, P. T. C. Junior, won. by Roth with a score cf 5-7, 0-2, Clarence Cooke, P. T. C. Senicr, Harold Dillingham, P. T. C. J:ir.ior, won by Cooke with a store of G-l, 0-2; C. W. Dickey, P. T. C vs. J. Cooke. P. T. C, won by Cooke v.-hh a tccie of 7-5, 4-0, 6-3. There was one other contest pkived on the P. T. C. courts curing the early part' of the afternoon. This was the completion of the unfinished set be s a Wilder of the P. 7 C. and Chas. Atherton cf the B. T. C. As was stated yesterday morning, the set stopped on the day before with the games 10 all. Upon being played eff, it was found that both the players were in the same frame cf mind as they were on the previous day and it. was not until the games were 10 all that Wilder took an extra brace and finished the contest by winning two games straight. This gave him the set by the extraordinary score cf 13-10 Such a score has never been reached by any two players on the Islands be fore. That there was great determina tion on both sides to do cr die, goes without saying. When the set was finished the players were about ready to drop. Both played a remarkably steady game. Wight and Roth of the Pacific Jun iors played a very swift game an 1 one that a very few of the grown players of the city have been able to catch up witn. Wight won the nrst st after a very warm contest during which there were frequent rallies and swift di Ives. Roth jumped into the second set and pulled it out by sheer persistence and steady playing. It was evident that Wight was getting a little winded but he stuck by the ship bravely. The last set was the most interring of the three. The score stood 4 ail whe i Roth got in and finished matters. Beretania Courts E. A. Mott-Smith, B. T. C, vs. Arthur Mackintosh, Valley Club, won by Mott-Smith with a score of C-l, 0-0; Chas. Eerger, P. T. C. Junior, vs. Donald Ross, B. T. C, won by Ross with a score cf 6-3, 0-1; D. H. Hitchcock defaulted to 3. G. Wilder. Following is the arrangement for today's play as made by the com mittee: Pacific courts at 4 p. m. D. Shanks, B. T. C, vs. E. R. Adams, P. T. C; J. P. Cooke vs. S. G. Wilder. Beretania courts at 4:30 p. m. -S. A. Mott-Smith, B. ' T. C, vs. C. H. Cooke, P. T. C; 5 p. m. Donald Ross, B. T. C, vs. Willie Roth, P. T. C. Junior. People interested in tennis are cor dially invited to the courts cf both the clubs to witness the contests of this afternoon. That they will well worth seeing goes without saying when a glance of the list of players is obtain ed. One of the most interesting eon tests will be the match between Ross and Roth, the latter a member cf the junior branch of the Pacific club. New Hook??.

WEDDED. St. Andrew's Cathedral .Marriage at Noon. In St. Andrew's Cathedral at high noon yesterday D. Howard Hitchcock, the artist, was united in marriage with Miss Hester Dickson, the Rev. Alex. Mackintosh performing tho ceremony, using the ritual of the American Epis copal Church. The church was well filled with the friends of the young couple, summoned there by invitation. The church was a mass of flowers and ferns, particularly the front part. At the appointed hour, the bride en tered tho church supported on the arm of her uncle, Chief Justice Judd. Preceding her were the groomsmen, Messrs. John and Harry Waterhouse; the bridesmaids, Misses Cordelia Car ter and Clara Fuller and then, the inaid-of-honor, Miss Pauahi Judd, in order named. The groom with his best man, Mr. Walter Dillingham, were at the appointed spot and, as the strains of "The voice that breathed o'er Eden" died away, the service began. Then came the soft music of Bach's "Sara band" by Prof. Yandley on tho violin and Wrav Taylor on tho organ. This continued throughout the ceremony. As the wedding procession proceeded to the vestry to sign the register, the bridal march from Lohengrin was played. The ceremony over, the bridal party went to the home of Dr. and Mrs Day, where the wedding breakfast was serv ed. The newly married couple have gone to the country. They will return in time for the Kinau on Tuesday to go to their future home in Olaa. Both the young people are very well known in Honolulu. They were horn in Hawaii nei and intend to make this their home. The ushers at the church were: Messrs. George Carter, S. G. Wilder, Gerritt P. Wilder and E. R. Adams.
