Hayne has turned up again, this time in the General Sessions Part I in New York City, where he is being tried before Judge MacMahon and a jury on an in dictment for forgery in the first de gree, and I venture to write a short notice of the trial to you on the chance that it may interest a part of the Ho nolulu public. Hayne's true name is James David Hallen. He is charged with forgery, in 1893, of a mortgage which was dis posed of by him to Mrs. Florence Cauldwell, of New York City, for $16, 500. 'Many of his crooked deals were brought to light during the trial, and a hurried estimate puts his stealings at about $200,000. Hallen came to the United States from Chile and speaks Spanish fluently. During the recent Spanish war he passed himself off in Pittsburg as a Spanish duke with Am erican sympathies, signing himself "Juan de Hidalgo." He was arrested about a month ago in Addison, N. Y., where he was living quietly on. a farm of some sixty acres. The detective who arrested him told me that the agency had been shadowing Hayne for about four years. i The case for the people has been worked ud b.r Assistant District At torney Osborne and his Deputy, Lau- terbach. The former conducted the trial. It appeared that the latter, in discussing the facts of the case one evening at dinner with a friend, re marked that he wanted someone to identify Hallen, as having been in Honolulu. This friend was an old Yale man. whom I had met, and the conversation resulted in the sending of a detective to New Haven to call on mf The next moraine I went to New York with Allan W. Judd and William T. Rawlins, to appear for the people and identify Hallen as the Honolulu Hayne. This we were readily able to do, although he had grown a gray beard and looked a bit thinner, ins wife and steD-son were present in court and Hallen on the stand denied absolutely that he had ever seen them before. Hallen denied having ever been in Florida. The clergyman from Mel bourne, Fla., who married him there to Mrs. Brush, who was his wife in Honolulu, was Tut on the stand and identified him absolutely. He denied havins: ever been in Vermont. A lady of Vermont was produced by the pros ecution who testified that she had en tertained Mr. and Mrs. Hayne at din ner and that the defendant was that man. He denied having ever been in Osage, Iowa, and two witnesses iden tified Hallen as Hayne, whom they had known in Osage. Then he denied absolutely that he had ever been in Honolulu. Allan Judd and William Rawlins were then called to the stand and identified him posi tively as Hayne. The production of witnesses from all parts of the United States was dra matic and there were many interesting moments. Hallen conducted his own defense, and the old adage that "the lawrer who is his own lawyer has a fcol for a client" never was more forcibly il lustrated. He was assisted by two lawyers, Lansing and Marshall. A sensation was caused when Hallen in his cross examination of Mr. Raw lins said "Where did you first see this man you call Hayne?" Mr. Rawlins re plied "I saw YOU first when you de livered a lecture before the students of Oahu college, where I was studying in 1S94, on "Success in Business Life." The irony of fate was plainly apparent. Hallen repeated the words "Oahu Col lege" after Mr. Rawlins and showed by his pronunciation of them that he was not saying them for the first time. Hallen produced several photographs of the alleged being Hayne, to show that he was not Hayne, but neverthe less all the witnesses said that they recognized the likenesses as Hallen's. One of the photographs produced by Hallen (who had said that he had never been in Honolulu) was of Hayne in a duck suit and the name of the photog rapher "J. J. Williams, Honolulu" was stamped on the bottom. No attempt was made to show how it had been ob tained by Hallen, who submitted it in evidence, greatly to the delight of the prosecuting attorney. Hallen's manner on the stand was consistent with his character.

In express words the Hawaiian Commercial & Sugar Company re pudiates a deed from the Ha waiian Commercial & Sugar Co. to the Maui Railroad & Steam ship Co., dated February 26th, 1S9S; and also an assignment of lease dated March 5th, 1898, from the Hawaiian Commercial & Sugar Co. to Royal D. Mead. Back of these advertisements there is a story, the rough out line of which is as follows: Early in 1898 the Hawaiian Commercial & Sugar Co. and the Kahului Railroad Co. became in volved in various disputes, which culminated in a series of law suits. For the purpose, it is under stood, of better handling the the Hawaiian Commercial Co., which was then controlled by the younger Spreckels boys, Rudolph and Gus, formed a new corporation called the Maui Steamship & Railroad Co., and a deed was made to it of the ground belong ing to the Hawaiian Commercial and Sugar Co., upon which the Kahului Railroad and its stations, wharves and warehouses were located, the Kahului Railroad Co. being simply a tenant on land belonging to the Hawaiian Commercial & Sugar Co. The Hawaiian Commercial & Sugar Co. also agreed to convey to the Maui Steamship & Railroad Co. all of its railroad plant throughout its plantation. The sole consideration for this transfer by the Hawaiian Com mercial & Sugar Co. was the receipt by it from the Maui Steam ship & Railroad Co. of 500 paid-up shares of the stock of the Maui Steamship & Railroad Co., the Maui Steamship & Railroad Co. taking 600 shares for its share of the capital stock. The Maui Steamship & Railroad Co. consisted practically of the managing owners of the Hawaiian Commercial & Sugar Co., and the two companies, instead of the one, proceeded to carry on the litigation with the Kahului Railroad Co- ; Upon the recent deal by which the control of the Hawaiian Commercial & Sugar Co. passed from the Spreckels boys to H. P. Baldwin and the Castles, it was supposed by the purchasers that the Maui Steamship & Railroad Co. branch of the business would simply be dropped or turned over to the Hawaiian Commercial & Sugar Co. owners. But the Spreckels boys are taking the stand that the sale by the Hawaiian Commercial & Sugar Co. to the Maui Steamship & Railroad Co. was a bona fide transaction and Rudolph Spreckels has now demanded the sum of $300,000 for the 600 shares controlled by him. The Hawaiian Commercial & Sugar Co. have promptly met the situation by repudiating the whoje transaction as a fraud upon the company and are instituting proceedings in San Francisco to have the conveyance sat aside. The grounds upon which they base their claim are, that Ru dolph Spreckels at the time of the deed in question was the Pres ident of the Hawaiian Commercial & Sugar Co., that he being such president conveyed property, six-tenths of which he values at $300,000, to a company in which h himself took a majority of the stock; that although the total assets of the Maui Steamship & Railroad Co. consist of the property purchased from the "Hawaii an Commercial & Sugar Co., the latter received for their own property nothing but a certificate for less than half the stock of the Maui Co.; that Rudolph Spreckels as an officer of the Hawaii an Commercial & Sugar Co. could not in justice to the stockhold ers of that Company make a deed of .the Company's property to himself or to a corporation in which he was the controlling stockholder, for a nominal consideration. The object of the notice herew-ith advertised is to give notice of the claim of the Hawaiian Commercial & Sugar Co. to all per sons that the sale to the Maui Steamship & Railroad Co. was not a bona fide one and that Rudolph Spreckels and the Maui Steam ship & Railroad Co. have no power to sell or deal with the said property.

This had a perceptible effect on the jury. Many incidents occurred which were very interesting, but which had better be omitted here. Mr. Paul Neumann arrived from Washington after the case had been closed by the prosecution, but the Judge allowed him to take the stand and briefly to say that he recognized Hallen as Hayne. The attempt on the part of the counsel for the people to obtain Liliuokalani as a witness failed. Several copies of Hayne's paper "The Hawaiian," were produced, but, of course, Hallen had never seen them, or known of the existence of such a publication. After all the testimony was in Judge MacMahon allowed Hallen to remove his beard and moustache, but it did not change his appearance much. His large figure, his eye and his peculiar and heavily-trimmed eyeglasses were enough to identify him. The jury found Hallen guilty of forg ery in the first degree. At his request on motion the passing of sentence was deferred and the prisoner was remand ed to the Tombs until December 27th, when he will move for a new trial. The maximum penalty is twenty years. In conclusion I would say that the witnesses called by the people re ceived every courtesy and some of them incurred no. expense by contrib uting to the conviction of one of the greatest of scamps.

There was an unusually large crowd in attendance at the Thomas Square band concert last evening. The stand was brilliantly illuminated with acety lene gas, furnished by the Oceanic Gas & Electric Co. The acetylene light is a white, steady flame, and was highly spoken of by those in attendance at the concert. The audience was enthusiastic and Capt. Berger added a number of selec tions to the program in response to the applause received. With grounds and stand well lighted as last night, Thomas Square would become a pop ular concert park.

Wes ley Merritt, who is spending the holi days in this city, was very much sur prised to hear of the surrender of Ho llo by Gen. Rlos to the Insurgents. Gen." Merritt believes the surrender may have been an intentional move on the part of the Spaniards, designed to make it difficult for us to maintain con trol of the Philippine islands. "The idea the insurgents have is that ,L the more territory they can assert that they hold the better their claim to the right of independence when the time comes for them to treat with the United States regarding the mode of government." BRITISHER'S VIEW. LONDON, Dec. 29. A correspondent of the Globe, writing from Hongkong on November 26, says: ; "It will be a great misfortune, if. through hasty action or ignorance of the actual state of affairs, the Filipino . natives rise against the Americans. Hitherto, although the Americans have often given great provocation, the Filipinos have shown great forbear ance and a strong dislike to come to blows. They do not want to fight, and if the Americans only meet them half way all will go well. There is much to be gained by a just, statesmanlike settlement with the natives, while there will undoubtedly be great losses through a continuance of arbitrary treatment. The just aspirations of the people ought to be taken into consider ation, and I believe they would be if only the proper men are sent out by the President to settle the question of the future government of the Islands on the spot, after proper deliberation . and very careful investigation. Such a commission would discover that the Filipino leaders have been loyal to the Americans. FROM DEWEY. NEW YORK, Dec. 29. A dispatch to the Herald from (Manila says: Admiral Dewey considers it abso lutely necessary that a first class statesman be sent to Manila to thor oughly investigate the situation here and to ascertain the aspirations of the Filipino Republicans. He further states that the United States must accept the responsibilities in the Philippines which have been acquired by conquest. If the Americans should shirk this duty they would put themselves back j 200 years in the world's history, j NEW CABINET. MANILA, Dec. 29. A new Filipino Cabinet has been formed. ! The present temporary Cabinet, ' which will exercise power pending the elections, is very anti-American. It j allows of no American co-operation j whatever, and wants to declare a free Republic and to consider Americans as aliens. j It is willing to grant liberal commer cial treaties, with a monopoly of the I mines and railways, and to repay the 1 expanses of the American occupation of Manila. wm MESSENGER SERVICE.
