. "When the plaintiff had rested in the
suit of Manuel Pedro Ferreira against
Honolulu Rapid Transit & Land Co.,
claiming $10,000 damages for death of
plaintiff's son, Mr. Withington moved
for a nonsuit, which, after argument by
both sides, was denied by Judge Robin
son and then the defense opened. -
Kapena Richard, who had been one
of the principal witnesses for the plain
tiff, was called among those for the
defendant, Hal. M. Slemons gave evi
dence and was besides the maker of a
map Introduced. .
C. G. Ballentyne, the defendants
manager; Alex. Pratt, its car superin-
tendent; L. Tenney Peck, its president;
and H. P. Jensen were the remaining
witnesses called up to adjournment for
the day. The case will probably go. to
the jury this morning-.
DAMAGES FOR EXECUTION.
Partners In the firm of Tan Wo Tong
have brought an action for wrongful
execution levied, claiming $2000 dam
ages, against Hoffschlaeger & Co., Ltd.,
and A. M. Brown, High Sheriff of Ha
waii. They allege trespass, forcible en
try, seizure and detention of goods, de
preciation of goods,' expense of recov
ery and damage to business as grounds
of their claim.

istration on the estate of the late Mary
Lonokahikini Kunuiakea. Besides peti
tioner the heirs at law are a half
brother and a niece. The estate con

For every one of the four months Ho
nolulu city Tork has been carried on,
comprising street lines and grades for
buildings, curbs, street construction,
Rapid Transit Co.'s tracks,; etc. Street
monument work has also oeen steadily
advanced. The old way of erecting1
stone pillars at street corners has prov
ed unsatisfactory, as private owners
would sometimes remove the landmarks
in making their own improvements.
Monuments are now being placed in the
streets, on lines parallel with street
bounds. They consist of pieces of pipe
enclosing copper bolts. Data concern
ing them are kept in the office and the
monuments serve also as bench marks
from which to calculate elevations.
"Work was done in January on Bates

struction was discontinued. In Feb

were furnished for the new site for
Government stables at Kewalo, also a

street widening. The sides of the val
ley are very precipitous, a serpentine

ing a projection sheet for a group map

tedious to enumerate them have been
furnished to other departments of the
Government, as well as to the Land

The Voucher Destroying
Case Goes to Jury
After the prosecution had rested in
the trial of Solomon Meheula for de
stroying vouchers of the House of Rep
resentatives while its clerk, Mr. Ash-
ford moved for a directed verdict in
favor of the- defendant. The main
ground of the motion was that proof
had not .been made that the vouchers
alleged to have been destroyed had ever

holding that defendant's own admis
sions made it a case" to go to the jury.
John H. Wise, the first witness for
the defense, testified that the vouchers
and other documents were loosely kept
upon the House clerk's desk and. there
fore might easily have been abstracted
or lost. A cross question by Mr. Dunne,
to ascertain if the witness was not the
were other vouchers for all of his salary
at $10 a day.
Witness further said that Meheula '
testified that It was his custom to draw
warrants .only on vouchers approved by
the chairman of the committee Incur
ring the expense, and. by that of the
committee on accounts. When Mehe-
ula's attention was drawn to some
vouchers that bore no evidence of such
formalities, Meheula told the grand
jury that he had sometimes issued war
rants without " having vouchers. Wit
ness identified twenty-two such irregu
lar vouchers. As to keeping the vouch-
ers in his custody, which. he Informed
the grand jury he had done since the
legislative, session, Meheula told . the
grand Jury he considered them - the
property of the committee on accounts,
and further that he would not yield
them up to newspapermen because he
thought they would be used to help in .
disfranchising the natives. Being askr
edihow the vouchers could be put to
such use if they were aboveboard and -
honorable, Meheula made no reply to
tile grand Jury.
An Advertiser reporter and Geo. I.
Henshall of the Star were called, after
Mr. Adams concluded, both testifying
to Interviews with Meheula In which
he maintained that the vouchers be
