HO INSTRUCTION UNDER SEC. 457
JUDGE HUMPHREYS DECLINES
TO ACT IN ACCORDANCE
WITH A MOTION.
Deputy Attorney General Cathcart
Asked That Jury' Be Instructed
Under Section 457, Penal Laws
The case of the Territory against
August Itlckard alius Klckard Kunst.
who wai charged with soiling liquor
without a license, was called in Judge
Humphreys court yesterday morning,
aatl the following jury empaneled:
Jas. Kabalepua, H. C. Blckerton. Alex.
K. Aena, Alex. G. Nicholas, Guy Livingston,
Geo. W. Harrison. Harry 3.
Swiaton. Isaiah Bray. Edwin K. Dlake,
John L. Hangman, Jas, K. Merseberg,
Kunst was visited by two white
winged emissaries of the police, and
by thom under tho gul3e of friendship
was Induced, so they alleged, to show
a bottle of wine, for which ho was
lodgod in jail by Officer David Kaapa.
Aftor the convening of court, Deputy
Attorney General Cathcart presented
his case and placed Kallianu
on the witness stand.
The second witness was Nakolellau.
His version of the affair was an exact
reproduction of Kailianu's.
When David Kaapa took tho stand
there was a revelation. He said he
employed the two above named gen
tlomen to go out and look for viola
tions of the law. He selected a hunting
ground and sent his two knights
forth. They reached their destination
and asked for something to drink,
tendering In payment therefon the
money they had received, and according
to their testimony, Kunst fell an
easy victim to their wiles and placed
a bottle of wine and two glasses up
on the festal board. During this
time David Kaapa, having climbed j
number of back fences, appeared upon
the scene, startling the erring
Kunst by declaring him a prisoner.
Aftor ransacking the house and peering
under beds, Kapaa discovered, he
alloges, five and one-half cases of
Green Rivor whiskey, a number of bottles
of gin, 52 bottles of wine and
glasses too numerous to mention.
At the conclusion of Kapaa's testimony.
Deputy Attorney General
requested the court to instruct
tho jury, under section 457 of tho
penal code. Judge Humphreys took
and dofeube having rested thoir cases,
Attorney L. M. Strauss made an able
effort in faor of his client, followed
by a strong appeal for conviction by
Judge Humphreys then delivered
his charge, to which the Jury listened
attentively. Tho case thon went to
the Jury In one hour a verdict of
guilty was returned.
Tho prisoner will be sontoncod thiB
morning at 10 o'clock.
In docliulng to instruct the Jury
under section 45? of the Penal Laws
of 1S97, Judge Humphreys gave the
The defendant in this case Is charged
with selling spirituous liquors
without a license so to do. in
of our "criminal laws. The
ovidence is all in and the Attorney
General now moves that the Court in
instructing tho jury frame a charge
under section 457 of the Penal Laws
of 1S97. Said section is as follows:
"The delivery of anv spirituous liquor,
either by the owner or occupier, or
by his or her servant or other person
la the house or placo shall be deemed
to be sufficient prima facie evidence of
money or other consideration boing
given for such spirituous liquor, so
as to support a conviction unless
proof to the contrary be glvon to the
satisfaction of the jurv " Prohibition
does not exist in this Territory. "We
have ne statute which declares it illegal
for one to give away spirituous
liquor in one's own house To do so
is In legal contemplation an Innocent
act. This statute converts what may
well bo not only an innocent but a
commendable act into a presumptively
criminal one until the defendant
glvos "prcof to the contrary to the
satisfaction of the jury. For instance,
a sick neighbor sonds to mv
house for a glass of brandy. His
sorvant Is seen leaving mv premises
with the brandy, whereupon under
this statute I mav be arrested, charged
with selling spirituous liquor and
upon mere proof that the liquor wa
delivered by me, or bv mv servant, I
may be convicted thereof unless I
prove my innocence. History reads
some sad lessons to the judicial mind
as to what Draconic laws have been
put upon the statute book to enforce
some supposed necessity of state and
to eTen the Innocent to get at the
guilty on the same tyrannical plea
of "necessity.' Mar we no paraphrase
the cry of Madame De Stael
and exclaim: Oh necessity, what outrages"
are committed in thv name? In
every age and country of the
world where the common law has
been known, its humane maxims that
the crime charged must be ilroven beyond
a reasonable doubt and to a
moral certainty, and that everv person
charged with crime Is presumed to
be Innocent, are household words
known as well by the tyro and the
citizen as by tb'e wisest member of
the bar, incorporated Into our jurisprudence,
interwoven with the very
net work of society. Early and late,
at the first daws of legal science, in
the reigns of the worst of the Tudors.
and the Stuarts before the American
revolution and since, up to the last
page put to press by the last sensible
author, these truths of the common
law have never been doubted or called
Into question. Where has a contrary
opinion prevailed. In countries
of the civil law? In countries of extorted
confessions by thumb-screws,
the Iron boot, the rack, boiling lead
places where the poor wretch charged
with an offense is presumed guilty
upon proof of an act innocent in it
self, and on that presumption is tortured
until he confesses in the dungeons
of the bastile. and in the tyrant's
priscn. "where hope never
comes that comes to all?" It was In
one instance made to sully the pages
of the statute law of England, but it
was driven from it in disgrace amid
the execrations of honest men. It
was that horrible law, which makes
the b'ood curdle in the veins at its
recital, which presumed the mother
of an illegitimate child, when it died,
guilty of infanticide, unless she could
prove bv rfie witness at least that tho
child was born dead.
The crying injustice of
men in advance of proving them
guilty, upon mere proof of acts which
mar well be innocent, harmless,
charitable, neighborly in all things
commendable, has been immortalized
bv Virgil, when he makes the common
Svbil lead his hero through his fabled
hell. On his wav to the Elysiau
plains, the hrrrid sounds of Tartarus,
surrounded by a triple wall salute his
wars; the clank of iron, the rattling of
chains, the groans of anguish the reverberations
of the lash! Affrighted
he asks his conductress the meaning
of those sounds, who the culprits, by
what manner of punishment afflicted.
The Svbil replies that "no pure spirit
can ever enter those accursed
abodes." There the Cretan
holds his dreadful court
he first punishes then hears the
crime, ccmpelling the prisoner to
confess. "Nulli fas casto scleratum
'nsistere limen. Gnossius. haec
habet durissima regna
CaFt'gatque auditque dolos, subigitque
Among the sacred rights guaranteed
to the citizen charged with crime is
the right to demand "tho nature and
cause of the accusation," "to be confronted
by the witnesses against
him." nor can he "be deprived of life,
liberty or property without due process
cf law." Under this statute can
it be said that a defendant is informed
of the nature and cause of the accusation
against him when he is charged
with selling and convicted upon mere
proof of having delivered spirituous
liquor? It is due process of law to require
a man to prove to the satisfaction
of the iurv that an act which we
have seen might be innocent was not
in fact criminal? When the constitution
was framed, it was required
that the crime charged should bo
proven beyond a reasonable doubt.
To dispense with the necessity for
this proof is Just as great a stretch
of power as it would be to dispense
with the number of twelve men on the
Under this statute the owner of a

advertiser's bvst friend is tha medium through
THE he obtains the biggest returns for his money.
One medium which is used by advertisers to a great
extent is the circular or booklet The circular or
booklet is always Ineffective, unless it is Terr handsome
handsome enough to attract the eye of the man to whom It
Is sent, no matter how busy he may be. A booklet handsome
enough to do this almost always costs from three to
four cents apiece. There Is the mailing to count In (two
cents a copy, of course); there is the trouble in getting a list
of names, and In addressing. Altogether the coat will figure
up to about seven cents a copy for a good booklet Two
thousand Circulation in a booklet Is very large. Two thousand
circulation at seven cents is $140. I propose to show
that you can invest $140 in newspaper space anJ get returns
five fold of what you would get through a booklet
Newspaper Space Is Valuable
In the first place, there is the cost. For $140 you can txt
a good-sized space in a newspaper of good circulation for
quite a long time You know your newspaper rates; you can
figure it out to suit your own Instance much better than I
can. So much for cost
Now for Effectiveness
You must tell your customers how miieh your goods are
going to cost An advertisement without a price Is like meat
without salt it will do you no good. How can you pat
prices in a booklet when you are doing a strictly retail business?
You have competitors; you have to chango your
prices constantly to meet thelra. and to meet other exigencies.
The first change of a price will kill the effectiveness
of a booklet, and where are you? Your cdvertisemont
In a newspaper may be changed as many times as you do-sire.
You arc constantly up-to-date.
The Newspaper s Effective
Any kind of a newspaper has more circulation than yoa
can obtain through a booklet for $140. Newspapers reaah
the heart of the home. Every one reads them, and they aro
far more certain to obtain close attention than any printed
matter which you would send. If you sent printed matter
of your own accord to persons who do not know you, yoa
would be putting yourself face to face with thom without s
guarantee. They have nothing to judge the quality of your
goods by, and they can only take what you say on our own
paper and In your own way. Anybody can say as much as
When your matter appears in a newspaper of good circulation
and good standing, the newspaper is a guarantee for
what you say. Newspapers are always particular as to whom
their advertisers are. (I speak of good newspapers alwnys.)
Your ads will gain a value besides their inherent one. They
will be vouched for, and this Is not to bo despised. Yoa
have a certain fluctuating trade, which is always valuable,
and which needs seme sort of an introduction to your store.
This introduction the newspaper gives you.
Good Paper Adds Dignity
You are known by the company you keep, you know,
and if your ads appear in a paper which holds itself up before
the masses as a leader, you will be known as a patron
of what is good, and you will obtain trade from those whom
it is worth trading with
On all scores I consider newspaper advertising by far
the best On the Bcore of cheapness; on the score of being
able to constantly change your announcements; on the score
of direct and immediate returns; and on tho score of being
introduced to people, to strangers, as a store which can afford
to announce its news to every one in a dignified and
straightforward manner, and this i3 tho manner which brings
trade that pays.

The above article, written by one of the best-informed
advertising men in the country. Is In line with the business
policy advocated and maintained by THE HONOLULU REPUBLICAN.
His description of a good newspaper and Its
superior merits as an advertising mtdium Is distinctly applicable
to an essentially reliable and dignified family paper of
large circulation, such as THE REPUBLICAN.
