Insanitv will be the defense of Philip H. Xaone to the awful charge of mur dering his wife on October 8 last. This fact was placed beyond doubt yester day in the examination of jurors. At torney General L. Andrews is being as sisted in the prosecution by Arthur M. Brown as associate counsel, and Ches ter Doyle as the officer of his depart ment who has been working up the evidence. J. J. Dunne for the defense had Frank E. Thompson with him at the opening of the trial and entered the names of C. P. Clemons and W. A. Kinney as other associate counsel. The first objection raised by the de fense and overruled by the court was to the application of the law of 1905, which places the examination of jur ors largely under the control and dis cretionary restraint of the court. Before the regular panel was ex hausted, and a special venire for fifty jurors returnable this morning issued, E. Henriques, A. V. Gear, Harry Juen and J. K. Clark had passed for cause. Awaiting examination in the box were Milus W. Parkhurst. F. P. Bob ell o, F. W. Macfarlane, Jr., W. L. Austin, H. B. Savior, V. Green and B. Guerrero. Those who have been excused were C. G. Bartlett, J. F. Langston, F. A. Potter, C. Lambert, W. L. Lyle, F. M. Kiley, D. M. Boss, J. Steiner and H. W. Green. GROWTH OF LITERATURE. An answer of libellee to the peti tion v the restitution of child is the latest contribution to the literature of the divt rce case of Wilhelmina B. Hall vs. John W. Fall. Assault and vio lence in the fpther's procuring of the child '8 custody are denied. "And li bellee further sayeth," the answer procecus, "that all and every the al legations ("'iitsiined in paragraph five of said petition based upon the 'fears' 'apprehensions' and ' beliefs ' of the li bellant, -rc wl oily false and untrue hi both ?cds ; nd in the middle. Li bellee avers that he has no intention of leaving this Territory or of remov ing sai'i infant therefrom, it being his purpose iv 'fjlit the case to the bit ter end,' as alleged in a subsequent portion of said petition." He further denies that libellant is without means to pay costs and attorney, averring on the contrary that she "is possessed of ioth money, chattels and realty, and receives an income of about $35 per month." WORK FOR STENOGRAPHERS. The following amendment to Circuit Court rules has been promulgated by Judges De Bolt and Lindsay: "That in ail probate and guardian ship matters in which notes of evi dence were taken by a court stenog rapher, such court stenographer by whom such notes of evidence were taken shall make, furnish and file a transcript thereof in this court within ten days after the order or decision of the court shall have been made in such probate or guardianship matters." SUGGESTION OF DEATH. Upon the summons in a bill of inter pleader by W. Austin Whiting against Lee Tat San and others, Deputy Sher iff J. S. Kalakiela makes return of ser vice on three of the respondents, but certifies that due and diligent search for Lee Con Shun and Tarn Choy with in the Island of Oahu had failed. The officer adds that he is reliably inform ed that both of these respondents are dead. Complainant has $720 in his (hands belonging to the dissolved co . . . , v . vj partnership of Duck Yuen Co., of which the respondents were members, and, as they could not agree as to whom the money shoulu be paid, he brings the question into court for settlement. COUET NOTES. Notice of appeal to the Supreme Court has been given by defendants Kawananakoa and Kalanianaole in the suit of Sister Albertina, trustee, and Stella K. Cockett vs. David Kawana nakoa and others, from the Circuit Court decree in favor of plaintiffs. An order of default has been made by Judge Lindsay against the libellee in the divorce suit of August Johan son vs. Emma Johanson. Judge Lindsay is still trying the ejectment case of Kaaiona vs. Kaaua, started with a jury on Monday. LILLIAN LESLIE IN HONOLULU The San Francisco Examiner of May 2, says: Detective Harry Reynolds saw Lillian Leslie at Honolulu on March 14, and he was informed by other per sons that she was on her way to China. There was another woman with Miss Leslie, and Reynolds thinks the two women were traveling together. Rey nolds said yesterday: ' When I iirst saw Miss Leslie she and another woman were riding down in the elevator at Young's hotel at Honolulu. The Leslie woman recog nized me and stared back, but she said nothing and I did not speak to her. The two women went over to the Ha waiian Hotel, and I followed them there, beine curious to know what the Leslie woman was doing in Honolulu. 1 I saw her and the other woman on the veranda of the Hawaiian Hotel, talk ing to several Englishmen. I was told that the women had met the men on the steamer from San Francisco and that the Leslie woman was going to China. I left Honolulu on the follow ing day. I do not know what became of the Leslie woman. JUDGMENT REVERSED Married Women's Rights Affirmed A Verdict Sustained. A decision of the Supreme Court re verses the judgment in favor of plain tiff in the ejectment suit of First Na tional Bank of Hawaii vs. J. D. Gaines, J. M. McChesney and Alice McChesney. Justice Hart well, author of the opinion, is joined therein by Chief Justice Frear and Circuit Judge De Bolt. Smith & Lewis appeared for plaintiff, and J. W. Cathcart for de fendants. The law of the case is thus stated in the syllabus: "An assignment of a leasehold may be made by husband to wife, being in the nature of a gift, and not a con tract within the purview of the stat ute, Section 2251, Rev. Laws, preclud ing contracts between husband and wife. The Married Women's Act of 1888, Sec. 2251, Rev. Laws, has the ef fect of destroying the common law fiction-, of the unity of husband and wife. The failure to record the as signment does not invalidate it as against subsequent creditors." J. M. McChesney had a lease of cer tain premises at "Waikiki for seven teen years from August 1, 1895, at an annual rental of $175, with privilege of extension for thirteen years at $200 a year. He assigned the lease to his wife Alice McChesney August 20. 1901, subject to payment of rent and taxes. The assignment was acknowledged by him March 11, 1904, and recorded April 11, 1904. On March 11, 1904, an execu tion was issued on a judgment against the surviving partners of M. W. Mc Chesney & Sons, under which the leasehold was sold on April 11, 19 J4, to the First National Bank of Hawaii. Defendant Gaines was a sub-lessee of the premises. DAMAGES VERDICT STANDS. A unanimous opinion of the Su preme Court, written by Chief Justice Frear, overrules the exceptions of the defendant in the case of Wong Hoon Kau vs. Lui Yan, to a verdict of $300 damages in the First Circuit Court for a malicious prosecution of the plaintiff on a charge of burglary in the second degree upon the complaint of the de fendant in the District Court of Ha- makua, which prosecution was termin ated by the entry of a nolle prosequi. M. F. Furtado for plaintiff. A. S. Humphreys for defendant. The law points found are these: "When the only objection made in the trial court to a question in regard to the plaintiff's reputation was that the witness had not qualified to testify on that subject, other ob jections made to the form of the ques tion for the first time on the appeal will not be considered. "In an action for malicious prose cution, it is not error to refuse to strike out as not responsive an an swer that the plaintiffs reputation was good before his arrest, to a gen eral question as to what his repu tation was. "It is not reversible error to allow an improper question when the facts to prove which the question was ask ed are otherwise proved." -t. NINTH INFANTRY'S GLORIOUS RECORD The wHi story-Maker" regiment Is in Honolulu. The famous Ninth Infantry, whose most recent exploits breathe of the valor displayed before the walls of Peking, is passing through the city, once more en route to the Philippines. And more than all this the Ninth is now celebrating its semi-centennial. Four regiments of our armj- organiz ed in 1855 during the administration of Jefferson Davis as Secretary of War, are celebrating the same anniversary. They are the 4th and 5th Cavalry and the 9th and 10th Infantry. A portion of the 10th has already been assigned to duty in the Hawaiian Islands to re place the artillery. The 9th inianirj aares us present existence from 1855, but the original , 9th was organized in 1799 with Josiah ; .uvme nan, ni .Maryland, as lieuten- ant colonel commandant. It was dis banded in 1800, again organized in 1812 and under Simeon Learne.d (Mass.), as colonel, took an active part in the War of 1812. having Lundy's Lane and other battles of that period inscribed upon its record. Again disbanded in 1815, it was reorganized in 1847 with Truman B. Ransom (Vt.. who was killed at Chapultepec. as its colonel. The regiment bore a disinguished part in Mexico, sixteen officers and eleven enlisted men being mentioned for dis tinguished conduct at Chapultepec, among them the late R C. Drum, then a second lieutenant and afterwards A. G. of the Army. Disbanded for the third time, the 9th received its final reorganization under the Act of 1855, which added four regi ments to the Army. George Wright w as colonel, Silas Casey, lieutenant colonel, and Steptoe and Garnett ma jors. The captains were Lugenbeel, Dent. F. E. Patterson. Pickett. Winder, Woodruff. Bowman, Guthrie. Archer, Fletcher: first lieutenants. H. M. Black, Frazier. English. Sargent. Van Voast, Bissell. G. W. Carr. R. H. Davis, J. C. Howard. C. R. Woods; second lieuten ants, Fleming, Douglass, Myers, L Mil- ler. P. A. Owen. Harvie. C. A. Rev nolds. D. B. McKibbin, Wiekiiffe and J. K. Allen The change in conditions in the army since 1855 is indicated by this extract from Mrs. Lane's account of "Old Days in the Old Army." "The pay per month for a first lieu tenant of mounted rifles was $93 vast wealth it seemed to me. More would have been useless for there was noth ing to buy. so that the commissary bill was the only one we owed monthly, except servants' wages and one to the laundress, and we saved money. The commissary furnished only necessary articles of food at that time, such as coffee, flour, sugar, rice, ham and pork, which list of eatables did not offer much to tempt the appetite; the day of canned meats, vegetables and fruits was not yet. Butter, eggs and chickens were brought to the post sometimes from the ranches, eighteen or twenty miles away, the owners running the risk of being murdered by the Indians every trip they made. Game was very abundant, and almost at our door; deer, turkeys, partridges and ducks could be found right around the post Fort Inge. Texas), while the lovely. clear stream that ran just back of the house was filled with magnificent bla?k bass, which were easily caught, and often weighed six and eight pounds."
