THE PACIFIC COMMERCIAL ADVERTISES, HONOLULU, OCTOBER 21, 1905.
THE PACIFIC gQMMEgglAL ADVERTISER WAZiTES G. SMITH : , :. : : : : : EDITOR. SATURDAY - - - - - - - OCTOBER 21. THE GAMBLING AFFAIR. Just to show what could be done by a man who really wanted to penetrate the Moore gambling hell, a reporter of the Advertiser, in his valid character of a special policeman, entered the place yesterday, went through it, mapped it and thoroughly established its character. His story appears on the first page - Moore's big place is where the regular police have been unable to find evidence of any kind. Had they wished to do so while games were running nM oooihr n'nt nativps .Tananesft or white men to serve them detectives. If they don't know how, and are ready to pay expenses, the Ad as RED HAIR DISAPPEARING. The formation of several "Bedhead" clubs on the mainland recalls an investigation made not long ago in San Francisco -which revealed the startling fact that very few redheaded men are to be seen on the streets of that city, at least. Indeed, from the figures published the bricktopped seem to be a fast vanishing race. It seems a great pity that red hair should be so -seldom seen. In the first place, the humorists have always made their heroes out of redheaded boys and men. In the second place, men with auburn locks have always kept things on the move. The immediate surroundings of the fiery poll are always busy. But when clubs commence to be formed to preserve specimens, it is a sure sign that the constituency of them is getting small. One does not collect things of wide and plentiful distribution, but only things that have a curio value. But there seems to be no remedy, at hand. Nature works in her own way. The Saxon was once known by his red hair. England was filled with redheads. America was once filled with them, too. But we are a degenerate race. Our hair has faded. We are become weaklings and the peace of our cities is un broken. Only a few florid heads still survive to remind us of our belligerent 53S2C53BE3 and tempestuous youth when as a race we carried a chip on our shoulder and did wonders with our hands. In time the red head will disannear ontirelv and ..... - 1. it t Aw.y-.in iir o rr 1 n 1 rr 7 vertiser is ready to collect the eviaence wnen iue..u.c Kx . , ghall eease tQ agitate to burn with fury and fight at a Hft q tfae It can put detectives into gambling hells, if Brown and Vida can not.

Touching certain features of the trial the Star says: "I do not care to enter into any controversy with the Ad vertiser over the manner in which the Moore case was conducted yesterday," said Assistant County Attorney Andrade this morning, "but it seems to me that the editor should know something about the laws of evidence. "He was asked if he knew the defendants and he said that he did not. He said definitely that he did not know them and he did not know their business. He was then under oath." v Mr. Andrade is mistaken. Mr. Smith was not asked if he "knew the business" of Mr. Moore. He was asked if he knew Mr. Moore or knew his associates, and that was all. Again the Star: If Mr. Smith could have succeeded in spreading the Hatter re port on the records, it regrets more than ever that Mr. Smith did I not see fit to inform the Deputy County Attorney beforehand of the information that he possessed so that the examination might have been so directed as to bring the Hatter report before the court and so make it public. The witness presumed that he would be asked keynote questions and was leady to answer them. It was not his business to direct the inquiry. That . . v a "1 .

Besides Mr. Smith was called without smokes our tobacco is pressure to Our preliminary notice or examination. Apparently the police thought it was a tongue and give the healthiness to Hers mined to oppose every atetmpt to re move the old frigate Constitution from f the Charlestown navy yard. They say j that it would not only be out of place elsewhere than Boston, where it was i built, but it would fall to pieces should t any attempt be made to remove the old ship to any new quarters. It has been ! suggested to raise a fund among the school children of Brooklyn, New York, I to purchase the old ship and bring jt to Boston, with a view of preserving it there as a national relic. This plan is bitterly opposed by the patriotic women of this city and a meeting has been called to consider the matter and de cide upon some method of preserving the frigate without removing it from its present quarters. AMUSING JAPANESE SIGNS. Clarence Ludlow Brownell, in his book "The Heart of Japan," tells amus ingly of some signs he saw in Japan on the shops of merchants who were bidding for English and American tradei "Barber to Shave Beard or to Dress Hairs Away," "The Genuinely smart trick. In one sense the trial was most successful. What the Advertiser began the crusade for was (I) to shut up the gambling hells if possible; (II,) to demonstrate that the police are subject to the alternative judgments set down by the supervisors, namely, that they are either incompetent, indifferent or cor rupt. Today Moore 's places are closed and the police have shown how little they can be trusted to carry out an anti-gambling policy. ; o ' THE INSURANCE INVESTIGATION. The impressions of so fair a magazine as The Outlook about the insurance scandal are well-worth reproducing in a community which is so deeply inter ested as is this one in the future of the implicated companies. The Outlook says: " The testimony given last week before the New York Legislative Com mittee by-officials of the Equitable and New York Life chiefly emphasized and elaborated the disclosures already made. Many further particulars were elicited of syndicate transactions in which the Equitable Society participated with different groups of its directors. In some cases it was shown that the society furnished all the money involved in these transactions, the other participants drawing, however, their full share of the profits. In some of the syndicate operations in which a profit accrued to the Equitable the proceeds were placea to the credit of a mysterious account in the American Deposit and Loan Com pany, known as the 'George H. Squire, Trustee' account. Sums aggregating and Hes!" Also. "All People by It.' "Cowmeat and Pigmeat and Ramune Souda Sasupre Zinsinbiya Jinjyael."

A cash balance of $100,000 was finally J transferred from this account to the notorious $685,000 loan account in the Mercantile Trust Company, from which it has been charged that payments j were made to influence legislation and as campaign contributions. By these ' disclosures it has been made increasingly clear that the money of the Equitable ' Society has been used to finance syndicate operations from which officers of ' the society, as individuals, have obtained profits, and that the profits due to the Equitable from these operations have been used for purposes which are not evident from the society's books. The further testimony of Mr. George W. Perkins, of the New York Life, shows that under the conditions existing in that company it has been entirely possible for him to conduct buying: and selling transactions between J. P. Morgan & Co. and the New York Life without consulting any one besides himself in either company. Mr. Perkins was very noncommittal as to wnemer inis nau aciuaiiy napptjueu in any case, sajiug that when so many transactions of this sort had taken place it was impossible for him to charge his memory with the details of each of them. By the testi mony of officers of the Equitable Society it was shown that agents were main-, we will offer at greatly reduced prices, tained bv the three srreat New York insurance companies in different sections & large lme of of the country to keep track of legislation which might affect the interests of the companies. Each company kept track of certain states, the expenses being shared by all. Mr. Jacob H. Schiff, of the firm of Kuhn, Loeb & Co., in the course of his testimony, in which he gave further details of syndicate transac tions managed by his company in which the Equitable had a part, gave it as his opinion that the system of directorships in great corporations in New York is such that a director has no power. The management of the corpora tion is controlled by the executive officers, and the director is considered by them as a negligible quantity. In this opinion it is probable that many will coincide, with the added conviction that many directors have considered their duties and responsibilities as equally negligible quantities." o : On MONDAY, Oct. 23rd AT 8 O'CLOCK DAVIS MAY STAY. This paper is told that Supt. Davis's formal resignation has not yet gone to the Governor and that there is reason to hope that the minor difference be tween Mr. Davis and the Executive may yet be healed. In the interests of the public school system we hope that the information is correct. It does the schools no good, especially in the midst of term work, io disturb the management. The teachers of Honolulu realize this fully and are practically a unit for the retention of Supt. Davis, whom they respect and like. That official is proving himself a good man for the place he holds. He is also a growing man. Why undertake to break in somebody else who may not meet the exigency I Why obstruct, in any way, the smooth running of the school establishment? This paper is given to understand that there is nothing of vital difference between Mr. Davis and the Governor. A hasty word or two at the end of an annoying day caused the whole trouble. It is too much trouble for so small an incentive. It involves too much risk. The teachers and the public would be glad to have the matter composed. o r Who wrote Townsend's letter the police! And why did Townsend, after being battered by Vida, come over on his side? Was he "scared to death,'' as Supervisor Adams asked?

And they seemed simple to her, because at a moment's notice, she could flood her house with brilliant light, with out having to expend time, worry or care to gain the pleas antest results only just putting her finger on a button.
