Acting Governor Mott Smith made two New Years presents in' the way of Executive clemency, Stephen Malta alu, who served a term in prison on convietion in connection with grafting in the land office a few years ago, was restored to hit civil rights. Kimura Tobei, who is serving a- life sentence for murder, received a f cm mutation to thirty years to jl&td from 1902. With good time? he will finwh his sentence about 1920. 7.'oibei was convicted of murder in the first degree and was sentenced to be hanged. The Supreme Court, on appeal, while refus ing to interfere with the verdict inti mated that the man had not been very well defended and that the sentence of death was too severe.. Governor Carter in 1904 commuted the sentence to life imprisonment. Acting Governor MottT Smith has reduced the sentence to a term which is rathr a long one for mur der in the second degTee, that is, where malice aforethought is absent. Tobei and a Japanese woman agreed to leave this world together. The arrangement was that he was to kill her aad then kill himself. He did kill her and then tried to kill himself, cutting his throat in a horriMe manner. Medical assist ance was summoned however before he had quite expired and his life was saved. It is thought probable that George WTade will receive a pardon within a few days. Efforts. are being made to raise, funds to send him to his wife and family in the East. He is in very ill health from diabetes and it is thought he cannot survive long. Some philanthropist could do what the Prison Board would tninK wouia oe a great kindness by aiding in furnishing the means to send him to his family to spend his last days. JOHN G. WOOLLEY MWJOME BACK It is reported in local prohibition circles that John G. Woolley is to be brought back to Hawaii to fight for the passage of a local option bill in the coming Legislature. Mr. Woolley, from his knowledge of the local situation and his acquaintance with the working out of prohibition and local option measures throughout the mainland, is considered the one man who is capable of framing a workable local option law for this Territory. , Senator C. H. 'Dickey, president of the Acti-loon League, would not verify the definite statement last night that Mr. WooIJey was to be induced to return here. "Nothing definite has been ppttleil about it as yet." he said. "We are trying to raise the fund, but mir prog ress does not justify aa asnnutee- PORTUGUESE Fl FROM Tl COAST - : ' ' The Board of Immigration Will Bring No More of Them Back. The Board of Immigration held a teway afternoon. . There were present Acting Governor Mott-t'mith, Richard Ivers, John Garden and J, H. Craig. A. L. C. Atkinson, the other member, was absent.

He js exercising tho very greatest car in his selection of the first fifty families of Southern Italians to be brought here. It is prob able that after these have been selected and sent here, Mr. Trenor will be en gaged to secure and send here a num ber f Portuguese from the Eastern States, as well aa further detachments of Southern Italians. The Board has decided to make no further efforts to bring back to the Territory Po"tuguese who have gone from here to the Pacific Coast. A party of seventeen of these were brought on the last Alameda, and the Board ap proved the b:Hs incurred in bringing them back. Of this party sixteen were men and one was a w.iman. They ranged in age from 19 te 54. The bringing back of this party and others that have preceded it are the result of the efforts of Mr. Silva. who was sent as the representative of the Board to California to work among the Portu guese who had gone there from here. The decision to discontinue this effort w due to the fact that the polier of the Board is to introduce families, wh'le those returning, and according to the reports of Mr. Silva, which may be expected to return in the future, are nearly all unmarried men.
