FIERCE SLUGGING IN
THEPOUCE ML Attorney Davis and Brown Have a Warm Set-to. JUDGE WILCOX REFEREES CONTEST. ATTORNEY GENERAL DOLE SEC- ONDS THE HIGH SHERIFF IN EIGHT "While Hanrahan Holds the Bottle. Davis, Not Esquired, Puts Up a Game Battle Features of Bout. The audience became Impatient for the event of the day, and as the gong sounded calling the men to the center of the ring a hush came over the enrwd like a December fog over a California landscape. High Sheriff Brown was seconded by Attorney General Dole, Officer Hanrahan being bottle holder. AUorney Davis was unattended. His face wore a determined, confident As the contestants stripped for action it was evident to the most superficial and casual observer that they had underwent a careful course of training. Each were armed with voluminous documents. During the whole mill, lasting one hour and forty minutes. High Sheriff Brown displayed much coolness in evading Uie wild and frantic rushes of his agile opponent. Referee Judge Wilcox permitted many foul blows to be struck. But with the true instincts of a sportsman, recognizing the rights of the large au dience present, ho overlooked many rib-roasters and nose-enders delivered in the clinches, and below the belt at long range sparring. During the long contest, in which intense interest never flagged for a moment, Attorney Davis was always on the aggressive. Some of his blows fell short and others went home with a loud, resounding report and disturbance that caused the court liouEe to oscillate and the countenance of the High Sheriff to wear pain. There wero lightning effects and transformations. Expressions of hatred, despair and anger and the passions which man has inherited from tho womb of original sin vanished in a moment, beiug suplanted by those radiant with humor and merriment. At the conclusion of the bout the referee, after highly complimenting Attorney Davis for the game fight that he had put up, awarded the decision to the High Sheriff by fining Attorney Davis 910 and costs. The loser immediately appealed to the Board of Referees, the Circuit Court Before final decision is rendered the bout, with its many phases, will probably bo taken to the United States District Court Perhaps the sawdust arena of the circus, whero tho cymbals and bass drum discordantly proclaim tho triumphant entry of nations, and the ring master announces with snapping whip, "Hero we are again!" better illustrates the scene in the police court yesterday. There were ground and lofty tumbling, aerial flights, clownish acrobaticisms, head plunging and body following feats through burning rings; in fact, a stupendous three-ring aggregation of living embodiments and side-splitting all under one tent and for the ono price of admission. Promptly at 9:30 o'clock High Sheriff Brown, erect as a wireless telegraphy mast, accompanied by Attorney General Dole, entered tho crowded court room. He was calm and self-possessed. The Attorney General was as serene as a tropical sky. Wnen tho case of the Territory of Hawaii vs. George A. Davis was called the High Sheriff slowly read the complaint It was brought under Section 693 of the Penal Laws of 1S97: "By acting and performing the duties of notary public of tho First Judicial Circuit without a license so to act and without paying license fee as so required by law." Hardly had the High Sheriff enunciated the word "law" when Davis wis on his feet and the slugging com menced. "May it please the court, I have filed a demurrer in this case," said Davis with high inflection of voice, extending hands and arms ceilingwards. "I haven't seen It" said Brown, twirling on his feet and revealing the symmetry ofNhis handsome form and belaced uniform to tho -whole court room, filled with capitalists, attorneys newspaper men and the flotsam and Jetsam of Honolulu society. "You haven't filed it with me," resumed Brown when he came to attention again, "and I don't know what it contains," "You don't?" exclaimed Davis. And then, turning t the court "What are you going to do with the demurrer?" "Here It is. Mr. Davis," said the court quietly, placing the paper on the of his desk. "What are you going to do with It?" asked Davis. "I overrule it,' responded the court. X shade of light came to the face of the Attorney General. At this stage of the proceedings George L. Edwards accompanied by a policeman, entered the court room He was called to the stand. The High Sheriff Up-toed to the witness with n paper In his hand. He was questioned about an affidavit made and acknowledged before Davis as a notary public Edwards manfully declined to answer the question, stating that his relations with Davis were one of client and attorney. "Answer tho question," said Davis. Edwards complied and then Davie moved that his testimony be stricken out, as the paper was the best evidence. Gusa Rose, a witness with sad. liquid jyeetMilwd that he was a civic ia the Treasury Department and was formerly in the Interior Department A license was Issued to George A. Davis as notary public in 1SS5. on July 27th of that year. Davis sprang to his feet He objected to the evidence. "Why. said he, "according to the testimonysof the witness the license was Issued prior fo the passage of the Act in 1S97." It was a rib-roaster and the prosecution became groggy. Last year, according to the witness, Davis had failed to pay for a license. "How do you know that I haven't? asked the attorney. "By the books," answered Rose "Have vou them with you?" "No." Then Attorney Davis smashed right and left His foot work and arm work met the approbation of the audience. He demanded that the case be dismissed. He had sent his resignation to the Governor weeks- ago, but that august person had refused or neglected to act upon it He then placed In evidence his resignation, sent to the Attorney General on August 1st and which had previously been introduced in evidence by the prosecution. High Sheriff Brown took the stand and then the exciting part of the mill began. He stated that he was Informed by the Treasurer that Davis hadn't pa'd his license. He narrated the story of the bringing of the action. "Didn't you go to the Attorney General's office last night to consult about this case?" asked Davis on Brown admitted that he had a consultation with the Attorney General. "Now. Isn't it a matter of fact tnat this whole action has been brought wholly out of spite, for the Interest I have taken in the Edwards case?" Brown made a deniaL "Didn't you and the Attorney General talk about the Edwards case last night?" "We might have mentioned it inadvertently." "When you brought this Edwards affidavit into court did you forget about the Edwards case?" Brown made an evasive answer, saying that he had no animus in the case and was only fulfilling his duty. "Haven't I always treated you fairly and as a gentleman?" asked Davis. "I can't say that you have treated me as a gentleman." This was said with great chilliness. "Didn't I manage your interests in the City of Columbia case, in the Chin Chong property ca-, and didn't I collect $200 for you from Captain August Spillner, for which you never paid me one cent?" asked Davis. "You did. BUt I paid you $25 for collecting the money from Spillner." "You never paid me one cent!" retorted Davis, his eyes glistening. There wasn't a sleepy man in the court "Do you mean to say that Treasurer Theodore F. Lansing informed you that I hadn't paid my license?" "It might have been the Deputy Treasurer." "But you said the Treasurer. By what orders did you bring Edwards into court?" 'I sent for him and he came." "Ydu sent for him! Didn't you get an order from tho Supreme Court?" "No." "Haven't I always been a law-abiding citizen?" "Yes, only when you are excited." "Do you get excited? Didn't you ject T. McCants Stewart out of your office about a month ago?" The High Sheriff made no response. "How long did you attend the Boston Law School with the Hon. Edmund Pearson Dole?" Referee Wilcox cautioned Davis about committing a foul by sustaining Khe objection of the Attorney-Gen eral. Then there were more savage passages, and Brown tiptoed to his corner a badly used up man. It began to dawn upon the audience that it was a case of malicious persecution. Davis requested to be sworn. On the stand he called Brown a liar. He declared that ho had never received a cent for collecting the $200 from and then a pathetic scene ensued. Davis, with uplifted arms and with an eloquence never heard in a Honolulu court, for the past two years at least, called on the heavenly powers to forgive Brown, for he couldn't There were lights and shades in Davis' finish. The caso was nothing but a tempest in a teapot, as The Republican had said. He didn't class himself with peddlers and fish hawkers and cake makers, who had to secure a license from tho High Sheriff to peddle their wares. nut wnen Davis came to sum up his case, no pen can describe his eloquence. He felt that he had been wronged. And with that Intense earnestness which always actuates a wronged honest man he launched forth. Invective followed invective, until there was nothing but a terrible tornado sweeping everything before it When Davis alluded to the nepotism of the Dole family; when he pointed to the Attorney-General and declared that he was nothing but a creature of his uncle, Dole turned pale. Whm Davis called upon God to forgive Brown for not telling the truth, it was dramatic PLANS OF FILIPINO PLOT. Secret Service Stumbles Upon In- surgent Kecraiting Office. WASHINGTON, July 24. The Secretary of War has been furnished with copies of some interesting documents relating to an a Ueged plot against the authorities in Manila, which were discovered in tho district of San Miguel.
