JURY HUNG ON CHINESE
Anglo-Mongolian Battle Endi with
Jlonors Easy.
LIU WING TAKES STAND FOR SELF
On All-Important Owalatorr Ques
tion Ho Avers Kor Harris Did
'Klxifr Mellcan ial" Ulrl
Involved Rentes It.
"Ha Ills, lie klssce Mellcan gal."
So declared Liu Wing, defendant In the
great Anglr-Mongollun damage, suit. In
:ounty court, which ended yesterday even
ing : with honors tay, the Jury hnving
41sagreed. I-luJi testimony Is In contra
diction to that the the Mellcan gal In
volved, who In the morning deposed that
Harris simply tried to kiss her, did not
land, so to speak.
It might not appear at first sight that
the question of R-y Harris' osculatory
endeavors had aught to do with the ques
tion whether he was entitled to damages
from Liu Wing, Ah Sue, Blng Lung. Chop
Buey and the other defendants In the case.
However, the Chinese claimed that Harris
was not the best waiter in the world the
mor.ilng they bounced several things at
th Golden Eagle restaurant Harris from
hU job and a pie plate on his head, to
say. nothing of several pairs of Flowery
Kingdom fists which Impinged on the Har
ris cranium with telling effect.
The defense maintained that Harris had
looked on the cup which cheers, and also
Inebriates, before he caftie late to work
.that morning. -end .that he did everything
bu wait on guests at the Celestial cafe
teria. Hence the Importance of the al
leged kissing tf ono or other; ef the two
white girls, who also worked at the res
taurant. Bcse Hamilton, young and at least as
goi.l looking as the average waitress, tes
tified for Harris and was quizzed as to
whether she had been kissed. "He tried
to, but did not succeed," was her answer.
Atked If Harris hugged her. Miss Hamil
ton admitted that Harris attempted to ex
ecute a clutch, but she broke the hold.
Thus tlia mailer stands. Liu Wing Is
of unimpeachable ' veracity, but it must

FALLING TROLLEY HITS MAN
Charles Peterson Injured In Peculiar
Accident at Sixteenth and
Webster.
While attempting to board a Hanscom
park car at Sixteenth and Webster streets
about 6:15 yesterday afternoon Charles Pe
terson, a carpenter, living at 4336 Ohio
street, was struck on the head by the
trolley, which fell off the car,. It is
thought that the trolley slipped off the
wire and caught In a guy wire and was
Jerked out of the fastening. Peterson's
Injuries, while painful, are not danger
ous although it was necessary to take
several stitches. He was carrying some
wlndoy frames and the trolley struck
these and it is very probable that this
saved him from more serious injury. He
was Immediately taken to the police sta
tion, wheer his wounds ware dressed and
was then taken home In the new police
automcUil.
DEADLOCKED JURY EXCUSED

Corn Show Exhibits
from Hudson Bay
and Honolulu
Tom Sturgess Sings "From Green
land's Icy Mountains to India's
Coral Strand."
When Hawaii announced an exhibit for
the National Corn exposition Friday, Sec
retary T. F. Sturgess, who Is a Methodist,
sang two stanzas of "From Greenland's
Icy Mountains to India's Coral Strand."
Only a few days ago the exposition man
agement got notice from a New York
farmer that he was interested in the far
north and would exhibit corn grown north
of Hudson bay.
Now comes a letter 'from John W. Gil
more, president of the College of Hawaii
at Honolulu, saying if the exposition warns
the display he will collect materials tn
show how agriculture Is being taught In the
tropics across the Pacific.
This Is Just what the exposition wants,
and will be Invited at once. It expands
the scope of the exhibits tn th. vn.i
Corn exposition which last year attracted
international attention and this year prom
ises to be a thoroughly International af
fair. LONG ON THEGOLDEN GULPS
Jonathan Henry Has Difficulty In
Staying; Out of Jailer Ryan's
Jail.
John Heney, whose rapacity and capacity
for those golden gulps of grief which may
be obtained at the rate of 6 cents per gutp,
Just cannot make his thirst behave. Natur
ally, therefore, he Just cannot stay out of
Jail.
Thursday night, after having Just fin
ished a five days' visit at Jailer Ryan's
place of business, the veteran tank de
monstrator called again at his favorite
sanitarium of hibernation and recupera
tion. Insisting upon telling his Joys and
troubles through an open window to
friends who were "on the inside" of Jal
life. Jonathan Heney's conversation with
David Drunknow and other personages cf
equally friendly and Jovial disposition, was
rudely interrupted by Officer Vanderford,
who placed Heney where he could talk
with the Jail boarders without cranning
through a window.
In court Friday ten days were granted
him as a bonus.
