In re-direct Kinney asked the wit ness what had become of the bundle which the Japanese, who was assaulted while returning to work, Carried over his shoulder. Lightfoot objected to go ing into this matter on re-direct exam ination but the court held it was ad missible and the witness testified that he had seen' the contents of the bundle torn into rags and lying around the street. "Was there anything in that bundle except rags?" inquired Light- root, "it wasn't rags that was in the bundle. It t was clothing," responded the witness. . . 1 Deputy Sheriff "Eose was the next witness and Kinney asked him what orders had been given to Officer Wills. Objection- by Lightfoot precipitated a long discussion in which Ballou joined. Kinney stated that the object was to show the legal authority for the order to disperse to as to show that those remaining were guilty of unlawful as sembly. Lightfoot read the indictment and argued that the defendants were not charged with remaining after an order to disperse. Ballou said that the riot ' act part of the statute was inde pendent from the rest and that evi dence of remaining after the order could be introduced under the general charge of unlawful assembly. The court finally ruled the evidence inadmissible. Kinney then asked what officer had been put in charge of the police force of the Waipahu district but this ques tion met the same fate and the .wit ness was withdrawn." High Sheriff Henry took the stand to tell of his arrival on the scene. He heard the sound of some missiles flying through the air and when he too his prisoner into the automobile tkere was shouts of ' ' Tatake ' ' from the crowd. Kinney asked him to describe the tone, and after several of his characteriza tions had been ruled out upon objec tion by Lightfoot fcs being conclusions, he finally said that the tone was an. angry one, which the court allowed to stay in. Liffhtfoot took ni the matter of the shout upon cross-examination $ind tried to get the witness to compare it with another shout ' several days afterwards but the court held that in this ease comparisons were odious and ruled the testimony out. "Now this word 'Tatake,' " Light foot asked, "did you know what that meant!" " Why, I turned to some one in the automobile, I think it was Seoville, and he told me it meant fight." ' This was evidently not the answer expected as Lightfoot moved to strike it out but the court called attention to the fact that defendanc No. 1 at least was in the automobile and let the evidence stay in. ' Amada, the Japanese interpreter, testified that the word "tatake", which has figured so prominently in the case, means "beat." or "strike" and that it is used by a crowd in urging one combatant against an other. Lightfoot. upon cross-examination, produced four other Japanese words of similar meaning and' asked if some of them were not more properly , used where there were many combatants in stead of one. Kinney objected but the evidence was allowed. me witness Mitted on p0iiee Officer Wills and his testified that some of the other wordSr assistants. were more usually used by the labor-' The tw"Q men alowed to g0 yester ing classes but on redirect he reiter- day were Yamada and Higuchi. mak- ated that "tatake" was a word also used. William Woods was the last wit ness for the proseeution. He was in the automobile with Sheriff Henry when the Japanese prisoner was taken from the office of the Higher Wage As sociation into the automobile. "I was sitting on the steps of the automobile," he said. "I heard some thing hit the tire of the machine. A moment later I saw a stone the size of my fist lying where I had been standing about a foot and a half from where 1 was. " The witness described the crowd as yelling like a pack of Comanche In dians, but upon objection from Light foot the comparison was stricken out, the court remarking that the jury probably had never heard a Comanche Indian. A further attempt at characteriza tion brought out the statement that the yell was angry in tone, and this ad jective was allowed to remain in. Upon cross-examination the witness said that he had actually seen only the one stone lying hear his feet, but that he saw lots of sticks in the hands of the Japanese. Some had fence rails, and others pieces of firewood. The witness had some difficulty in reducing the sticks to tangible numbers, but finally thought that fifty Japanese with sticks would cover all that he saw. "Was it sort of a Donnybrook fair?" "No, it wasn't a circumstance to a Donnybrook fair," responded the wit ness. Lightfoot inquired as to the num ber of lights on the automobile, but the witness' recollection on the subject was poor. Lightfoot '.hen started to inquire how good automobiles were usually equipped, but upon objection the court ruled that the witness had not qualified as an expert on good automobiles, and the question was dis allowed. The witness had more dial culty in trying to locate the various t scenes of the drama upon the plan of the camp site which had been intro duced in evidence, but explained that he had arrived in the dark and was not familiar with the locality. "Were you terrified?" asked Light foot. "It was quite an embarrassing posi tion' to be in." "What were they doing?" "They were hollering." "What were they hollering!" "I am not a Japanese." "Was it banzai f" "Oh, you know better than that." At the conclusion of this evidence the prosecution announced that it rest ed its case. Lightfoot asked for time to prepare and file some motions on behalf of the defendants, and after some discussion it was arranged that his inotion should be presented and argued Tuesday morning at 9 o'clock, We are offering the grandest assortment of Towels and Corsets ever shown at a sale in Honolulu.

"Supposing the Mauna Kea doe.T not get in before 10 o'clock!"' inquired' one of the jurors, who was evidently bent on enjoying his holiday. . "If you are delayed through circum stances over which you have no con trol it will be an excuse," replied the court. The third nolle prosequi was enter ed yesterday by the Territory in the case against the Japanese charged with ( participation in the riot at Waipahu j on June , wnen an attacn was eom- ing the third Japanese whose case has been nol-prossed by the prosecution. Nagata, the first Japanese who was dropped as a defendant, escaped by reason" of the fact that he is Butter ing from tuberculosis and the - two men discharged yesterday were not identified as being included among the rioters. Circuit Judge Whitney had a strike case before him yesterday. The accused man is Kiso Kono, of Punaluu, charg ed with being a disorderly person, as the result of the threats he made against the lives of H. Kakimoto and M. Miai, two Japanese laborers who wished to return to work. Judge Whit ney set the case for next Wednesday. Kono was arrested on June 30 . by Deputy High Sheriff Doyle. . t .. MAKING A VOLCANO COOK. At the very edge of the great crater of the volcano of Kilauea, on the is land of Hawaii, about two hundred miles from Honolulu, is located one of the most novel ranches in the world. Its owner is an American, and he is making a profitable business from the sordid occupation of raising swine; but the remarkable feature in these farming operations is the manner of feedjng the stock. Covering the slopes of this crater mountain and entirely surrounding the ranch is a denfe forest, a greater part of whose thick undergrowth is com posed o giant tree ferns. That vari ety of .vegetation often rises to a height of fifty feet, with wonderful feathery foliage and stems-frequently a foot or more in diameter. The hard shell-like covering to these trunks en closes a fibrous mass consisting prin cipally of a pulp rich in starches and sugars. Experiments demonstrated that after thoroughly steaming or . cooking this pulp it becomes soft and is greedily eaten by the hogs, but the method of preparing the fodder was too expensive for practical pur poses. However, the natural resources of Hawaii solved, the problem. I The hardened lava coating, which ex tends for a considerable distance on every side of the active central pit of the volcano, is cracked in many plaees, allowing steam to escape con.- j tinually. Yankee ingenuity recog- ' nized the value of these phenomena, and above several of the fissures grid irons were erected and cord-woo l - lengths of fern trunks piled upon them. The effectiveness of this primitive steamcooker was immediately appar ent, and in the course of one or. two days the toughest fern became tender under this treatment. A single stroke with an axe then sufficed to split open each stem and laid bare the nutritious pulp, which the swine eagerly de voured.
