'..will" have' to' stand his trial for embezzlement of public money. By unanimous decision of the Supreme Court the Circuit Court is sustained in overruling the demur rer to indictment. Chief Justice Frear writes the opinion,, of which the. fol lowing is the syllabus: "In an indictment of an officer for embezzlement, it i? not necessary to set forth particularly in what manner or by. whom he was appointed. "Under a statute relating to embez zlement by officers and others who are charged'by 'law, regulation or appoint-. meht' with the safe-keeping, . transfer i 1 or -disbursement of money, it is not duplicitous to aver in an indictment that the officer wa? so charged by 'law regulation and appointment instead of by only one of these methods, they not being inconsistent methocs. "Under such A .statute an Inferior officer or clerk whose office or appoint- rrent is recognized by statute only in the appropriation bill is within . the statute if he is charged with.: the safe - keeping, etc. of money by regulation or appointment; he need not .be charg- ed by law. ' '".'' ':'..."'. "A clerk of the waterworks may be charged by regulation or appointment with- the safe-keeping, transfer or dis bursement of money although the sn iper mtwndent of waterworks is charg i ed y ,aW wfth the duty to 'collect all water rates from ships and persons in j (s) Honolulu or its vicinity.'" ) E.

Kespwnaent ana LL ASHORE T After Great Trouble Iwalani Lands Her Livestock. The Inter-Island steamer Iwalani yesterday was safely brought inside the lagoon at Midway Island, after hov ering outside for a week. The gale which started last week Friday did not let up and it was with difficulty that Captain Piltz managed to land any of his cargo. - President Kennedy of. the Inter-Island company had a talk-over the cable yes terday afternoon with Captain Piltz, who had gone ashore. The Captain stated that when he arrived last week Friday he was forced to stay on the lee side of the island where he managed to get the livestock ashore. Occasion ally during the remainder of the week he got some of the other cargo ashore, but very little. The gale did not relax In severity. Yesterday morning Captain Piltz brought the Iwalani around to the landing-side of the island and was able to steam into the lagoon over the bar. lie will . probably get- all the goods landed by tomorrow morning ana may start back for Honolulu Monday night or Tuesday morning. . The eable colony and the detachment cf United States marines were now for the first time supplied with refrigerator foodstuffs. ; The livestock was killed on landing and placed in the, new and mod ern refrigerator connected with the ice making plant. The . beef thus stored away will last the colony until the next' steamer gs out :. with : a six-" months' supply. a? colony now has I every facility and convenience of a mod- j ern, model town. True, Midway has no t 13-1 morning newspaper, but Midway land is supplied through every, twenty four hours with the cream of the world's news, and is especially fortunate in having the war news first hand. Baseball is enjoyed and a golf-club Is In existence, the players using balls painted black to distinguish them from the white, glistening sand. In fact, Midway is not such a bad place now to live in as when Captain Walker of the ship Wandering Minstrel was wrecked there many years ago. : WHAT PEOPLE f xGovernor Caner swore off on 1 iex. itoDertSvon swore oir.

Long-haired religious exhbrters, looking like old-time stage Mormons, held down the street corner at the in tersection of Fort and. Hotel streets last night. They wrere types . of the out-of-date extorters, of the fire and brimstone kind,- and seem ' to have emerged from the mists f many dec ades ago, when such, preacher were to be found roaming the wilds of the mainland. ' - . : - These exhorters are headed by the Rev. Mr. Jeffries, father of "Jim" Jeffries, the champion pugilist of the world. While "Jim" deals solar plexus blows in the prize ring for money, and makes a pile of it, his old father wanders about, letting his hair and beard grow long, wearing cheap clothes, ranting at any kind of a crowd that will gather about him, and -railing at "filthy lucre, which is but offal in the sight of the Lord." Every man, . whether young or old, wears his beard -and hair long. On nis head is a broad, rimmed black felt hat, and he carries a stout cane. " One '-.of the "Children of Israel," as they are termed, was accosted by an Advertiser man .yesterday and asked concerning their religion. "Where are your headquarters?" was asked. . "Our " headquarters are in Jesus," was the reply. "We come from California- Where do we get funds? The Lord says I Will give ye raiment and food and water. What m&re do we need?"- '-.'' . Last, night while the preachers were ' getting off ouotations from the Bible at a rapid rate, when an auditor asked Mr. Jeffries how it was, seeing they despised money, that they managed to get around the . world. "We do not come here tp beg your Island or your money from you," was the answer. We don't w-ant your money. As to money however, It cost - "s $625 to get here from San Francisco.
