HONOLULU, HAWAII TERRITORY, MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 30, 1907. PRICE FIVE CENTS. JUDGE WILFLEY MAKES AN iTTACK ON LORRIN ANDREWS Apparently Trying to Get Even for Call Down He Got From United States Circuit Court of Appeals. Judge Lebbeus R. Wilfley, Judge of the United States Court for China, eems to" be seeking revenge on Lor- Tin Andrews for the very peremptory order the United States Circuit Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit sont to Judge Wilfley early in this year, when - the latter refused to admit an American citizen to ball on appeal from a six months' sentence. The China Gazette of August 31 re ports in their entirety the proceedings having made false statements In some of the proceedings in the Circuit Court of Appeals. As appears from the report of the proceedings in the China Gazette, and from the newspaper accounts of the matter in the San Francisco papers of the, time, S. R. Price,, an American citizen in Shanghai, was tried before Judge Wilfley on a charge of assault and was defended by G. D. Musso, an Italian attorney practising in Shang- before Judge WTilfley when 'Lorrin An-jhai. He was found guilty, and on Jan drews answered the citation of the IS, 1907, was sentenced by Wilfley to six w Mb LOEBJN ANDREWS. court in disbarment proceedings. The citation I:self is not given, but from the answer and other .proceedings it would appear that Wilfley Is trying to disbar Andrews because of Andrews professional actions before the United Circuit Court of. Appeals in San Francisco last winter, fin behalf of S. R. Price, who was refused bail by Judge Wilfley. Jt would seem that Wilfley now charges Andrews with months' imprisonment. From this sen tence he appealed and applied to be ad mitted to bail pending the appeal. This was denied. Price thereupon applied to the United States Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco, through Lorrin Andrews and Bert Schlesinger, formerly Assistant United States Dis trict Attorney for the Northern DIs trict of California, and now a promt (Continued on page 5.)

TO DEDICATE THE JVl'KINLEY MAUSOLEUM AT COLUMBUS '., 'Mother " Parker, Mrs. Mary Elizabeth ParkeT, who would have been 1Q2 years of age on December ! next, died yesterday morning at 10 o'clock. The remains will be cremated today. The notice of the public funeral will be given out later. j . - , Yesterday afternoon there were services for the family at the Parker residence, the Rev. O. II. Gulick presiding, assisted by1ha Rev, Mr. Lono of Kaumakapili church. 'Mother1 Parker leaves four children, as t follows: Rev. II. II. Parker, pastor of Kawaiahao church; Mary Si Parker, Carrie D. Parker and Mrs. J. P. Green. Two grandchildren are in' Boston. They are Mrs. II. Jt. Wilcox and Carrie P. Green. Miother Parker was born Mary Elizabeth Barker at Branford, Connecticut, December 9, 1805, and lived during her youth at Guilford, Conn., where sh was married September 24, 1832, to Benjamin Wyman Parker, of Reading, Mas3., who was two years her senior. With her husband she was a member of the sixth company of missionaries sent by the American Board. That company included besides these two, Rev. John Diell and wife, Chaplain of the Amer ican Seaman's Friend Society, Lemuel Fuller, printer, and Rev. Lowell Smith and wife. This company sailed from NewJLiodon, Connecticut, Nov. 21 .1832, on th ship Mentor and arrived after a voyage of 161 days, May 1, 1833. The "Historical Missionary Album" published a few years ago contains the following: "The brigantine Dhaulie, Captain Bancroft, sailed from Hono lulu, July 2, 1833, for the Marquesas Islands, via Tahiti, and arrived at Nuu hiva, August 10, having as passengers, Messrs. Alexander Armstrong, and Parker, with their wives, and also three Hawaiian men servants, whose help proved invaluable. For sufficient reasons this mission was given up and the missionaries returned in the whaleship Benjamin Rush, Captain Coffin, arriving atHonolulu, May 12, 1834. A milch cow presented by Mr. Bicknell, while they were at Tahiti, was an honored attache of the company, and came with them on their return, and passed hen remaining years in the pastures at Kaneohe." . " The Parkers on their return from the Marquesas were stationed in mis sionary work at Kaneohe, on the other side of this island, where they remained until 1869 when they came to Honolulu. Here her . husband was associated with Rev. D. Baldwin in the training of native theological students. He died in 1877. The later years of Mother Parker's life were spent tranquilly with her children in Honolulu. She took an interest in current events especially those that related to the work of the churches. For many years, of course, extreme age has kept her closely at home, but her birthdays have been observed for many years, as an event, and have been the occasion for many to call on her. Her one hundredth birthday was especially marked in its observance. This was December 9, 1905. The Hawaiian band under the, direction of Cap tain Berger went to her Judd street residence and gave a pleasing program in her honor. She received a number of cablegrams of congratulation, one of them from Gorham D. Oilman, another from her granddaughter, and another from Mrs. C. M. Cooke who was on the Coast at the time. The Hawaiian Board presented a congratulatory address, To the Be loved Sister-elect, Mary Elizabeth Parker, on the One Hundredth Anniversary of Her Birthday.' The Hawaiian Mission Children's Society presented an illustrated and illuminated address. The text was by Dr. S. E. Bishop,, the illustrations bv D. Howard Hitchcock, and the illumination by Loo Tai Sing. Among the visitors on that day were George R. Carter Jr., then four weeks old, who was brought by his father the then Governor; Queen Liliuoka- lani, Mother Castle who died about a year ago, then in her 86th year; N. W. Potwine who was born in East Windsor, Connecticut, in 1825 and knew many of Mother Parker's relatives there; Dr. W. D. Alexander, Dr. Sereno E. Bishop, F. A. Schaefer, A. S. Cleghorn, and very many others representing practically all the old families whether missionary families or not, besides many of later arrival in the islands. Mother Parker's birthday last year was celebrated but more quietly, many friends, however, calling to pay their respects. .

CORN RAISING AT ill, 111 President Pinkham Returns From a Visit of Research. L. E. Pinkham, president of the Board of Health, returned by the Ki- nau from his trip to Hawaii where he went to look over possible sites for the location of a Home for Boys, of lep rous parents, for which an appropria tion was made by the last Legislature. (Regarding his trip he said: "'The definite object of my visit is still undecided and cannot be determin ed on for at least ten days. I person ally inspected all the possible locations for the proposed Boys' Horn and cov ered nearly all the area of the Waimea plains, in an endeavor to ascertain the suitability of the land for the purposes of a Home. "I made a careful investigation of the opportunities that might be avail able for the employment of those who might wish to take up agricultural pursuits. My investigations covered farming as carried on In the district of Waimea. I also included in my In vestigations the upper lands on the slopes of Mauna Kea, noting particu-. larly the- experiments at Kal Waikii, in Waikoloa, the private property of the Parker Ttanch and also certain lands adjacent, In upper Pauhau, be longing to the same owners. "At Waikii quite extensive operations have been carried on this year. Agri culture, both In this district and in Waimea is still a contest with the po ko or cutworm. At Waikii there was a field in which the extermination had been successful and on which had been grown a magnificent crop of corn, sam ples of which I brought back with m to Honolulu. The yield promises to b? far above the average corn yield per acre in the United States proper. "Another field showed evidences of considerable damage by cutworms. Ad jacent to the latter field was a very abundant crop of pumpkins and 1 squash, which could hardly be excelled anywhere. There have been some at-. tempts of a promising nature towards the setting out of orchards and grap-j' vines. 1 The soil in this vicinity Is very rich and finely subdivided and ia very easi ly cultivated. It is adapted to the use of the latest and most improved agri cultural machinery. The manager of the Parker Ranch. Mr. A, W. Carter, has ordered a complete outfit of such machinery and . purposes next season to plant approximately 300 acres of corn. This it appears to me Is one of the most Important agricultural efforts undertaken in the country, not that Us money value per acre will be cor respondingly great to some of our trop ical products but it will demonstrate whether the Territory can raise cer tain cereals which enter largely into human consumption, and thus In some degree render the Territory independ ent in food supply. "In the United States In 1906. th? corn crop averaged thirty-five busheli for each inhabitant. To what extent these upper lands on the Island of Ha waii can be thus utilized can only be ascertained by persistent experiment, as the rainfall varies within such short : distances that experimental cultivation only can define the limits. One thing, however, is clearly obvious and that H that farming Industry of this character can never be prosecuted successfully till the homesteads are granted In cor responding areas to those common In the United States proper. Only on uch areas can the mst economical (Continued on Page Four.) ,
