THE PACIFIC COMMERCIAL ADVERTISER, HONOLULU, JANUARY 18t 14.
New Arrivals in Wlitte Good
White Hit Hard
the Court's Decision.
The tension of several days of anxious
xraitizig was relieved on Wednesday
afternoon when telephone messages
swept over Maul' announcing: that the
Supreme Court had decided adversely
to the county bill.
Treasurer Kepoikai had arrived on
"Wednesday morning's Claudine to turn
over the tax assessor's department to
the- new officials, if he found them duly
qualified- Upon receipt of the confirm
ation of the news however he turned
over the office and records to former
Tax Assessor W. T. Robinson, with in
structions to him to put his former dep- j
cities to work at once.
On Thursday morning Sheriff Bald
win received a wireless from High
Sheriff Brown of Honolulu instructing
him to assume the duties of Sheriff of
Maui and to demand return of the
property in possession of Sheriff -elect
William White. Sheriff Baldwin duly
presented himself at the sheriff's of
fice and demanded to be reinstated, knd
' , for possession of the property deliv
ered to Sheriff White. Mr. White de
clined to vacate or turn over the prop
erty until he received further advice
from the Attorney-General, as to what
lie should do.
Sheriff Baldwin however summoned
all his old police force went to the
sheriff's office and practically took pos
session. In the meantime the Board of
Supervisors met at the courthouse, and
Sheriff White laid the; matter before
them. They fully discussed the situa
tion, and took the position that, a
neither they nor the sheriff had received
any official communication on the sub
ject, that it would be proper for Sheriff
White to hold his position until offi
cially notified that his election was in
valid. The Board invited any citizen
present to express his views and Mr.
W. T. Robinson, Mr. J. X. K. Keola,
Mr. Thos. Clark and others commend
ed the position taken by the Board,
and suggested that they would be
justified in holding the offices to which
they were elected, until officially noti
fied that the election was void. Sheriff
Baldwin was privately approached and
requested to withhold action until of
ficial notice "could be received from Ho
nolulu. He declined , to do this, how
ever, stating that his Instructions from
High Sheriff Brpwn were positive and
left him no alternative in the matter.
After much deliberation the Board
adopted a resolution substantially in
structing Sheriff White to hold his of
fice Until officially notified to the con
trary. Sheriff Bald win .was called be
fore the Board, informed of the reso
lution, and asked what course he pro
posed to . take in the matter. He re
plied that there was absolutely only one
course for him to . take in the matter
and that was to implicitly obey the or
ders of High Sheriff Brown. He added
lowevcr that while he could not recog
nize White as sheriff, still he was per
fectly willing that Mr. White should
occupy the rooms of the sheriff's office
until he was ready to turn over every
thing. A mutual understanding to this
effect was had, and with two sheriffs to
look after our welfare, peace rei&n

FAREWELL. TO TAFT.
One of the largest crowds that ever
congregated on a wharf here was that
which assembled on the Hackfeld dock
yesterday to watch the departure of the
Korea for San Francisco. Unusual in
terest was manifested in the departure
owing to the pi-sence of Governor
The departure of the big liner also
demonstrated that the Ewa end of the
harbor is equal to handling such a big
ing out of the harbor yesterday was
unique, and unattended by trouble, as
some waterfronters had prophesied.
The vessel cast off exactly at 4:01 p.
m. and twenty-seven minutes later she?
had straightened out opposite-the light
house and went full speed ahead out j
of the channel. As the vessel went out
sternwards from the Hackfeld dock
through the harbor until opposite the
Naval slip, her maneuver can the bet
ter be appreciated. Her stern was
backed into the Xaval slip, her bow was
swung around until she pointed direct
ly for the channel, and then with a
farewell blast of her deep whistle, the
vessel was off for San Francisco.
It was the first time that a vessel of
the Korea's size had ever attempted to
dock in the Ewa end of the ; harbor.
The vessel was deeply laden when she
arrived from the Orient, having landed
1600 tons of freight here, but in spite
of her depth she found plenty of sea
room beneath her. There is a channel
averaging thirty-one feet which runs
from the lighthouse in a fairly straight
line to the Hackfeld and Railroad
wharves. Had the big basin between
the Hackfeld, Oceanic and Brewer
wharves been dredged to the same
depth as the channel the Korea could
have" made her turn in that section.
By 3 o'clock the wharf became con
gested with people and the decks of the
steamer were thronged with sightseers.
Masses of flowers were carried away
by the passengers. The Hawaiian band
appeared on the dock and played for an
hour in honor of Gov. Taft. "
Just before sailing time Secretary
Taft, accompanied by Secretary At
kinson and Captain McK. Williamson,
U. S. A., went up the gangway. The
Secretary made his farewells on the
mai;deck. Governor Carter had gone
aboard a few minutes before with flow
ers for Secretary Taft. The Governor,
Secretary and other officials after
wards boarded the tug Fearless, with
the band, and serenaded the liner until
she left the channel.
Among those who departed from Ho
nolulu were W. O. Smith, who goes to
Washington in the interest of the
Planters' Association, and possibly for
the Hawaiian Electric Company. A.
Gnrtley, general manager of the Ha
waiian Electric Company, was also a
passenger en route to Washington, to
appear in the matter of the franchise.

VIZIER WAS DELIGHTED.
Persia's Grand Vizier and his suite
devoted most of their time in port yes
terday to taking in the sights of the
city. They went to the Pali in the
forenoon and were early aboard the
Korea, having lunched at the Young
Hotel. The crowds on the dock and
decks of the steamer interested the
party greatly. Several of the people
who met the Prime Minister here bade
him goodbye on the steamer.
