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ness was withdrawn."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,

o'clock of the same day.
"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

court.
The third nolle prosequi was enter

on June , wnen an attacn was eom-
ing the third Japanese whose case has
been nol-prossed by the prosecution.

rioters.

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.

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. Harper's Weekly.
