CONTEMPT OF COURT
Attorney Vivas Found Guilty of Contempt by
District Magistrate McKay and Sentenced to
Five Days Imprisonment.

FOUND GUILTY OF CONTEMPT.
M. Vivas, a well known attor-
ney of Wailuku, was found guilty
of contempt of court and sentenced
to imprisonment in the Wailuku
Jail for a term of live days by Dis-
trict Magistrate McKay on Monday
of this week.
Tho trouble arose as the result
of an objection by Vivas to which
the court ruled adversely and to
which the attorney made further
objection. He was told to sit down
but not only kept on his feet but
kept objecting after he had repeat-
edly been told by the court to sit
down. The court finally warned
the attorney that unless ho
down tho court would find him
guilty of contempt Those present
state that he was told five times to
sit down after which the court
found him guilty and sentenced
him to imprisonment for five days.
Mr. Vivas has been very ill for
the past two weeks and when this
fact was called lo the attention of
the court the judge stated that if
the attorney would apologize he
would be willing to let the matter
drop. This apparently was not
satisfactory to the attorney and he
took an appeal to tho Circuit Court
by habeas corpus proceedings.
Judge Kepoikai dismissed tho peti
tion and the application for bail
and remanded the prisoner to the
custody of the jailor.
On the certificate of Mr. Vivas'
physician, Dr. Dinegar, the jailor
sent the prisoner to the Malulani
Hospital under guard of an officer.
A was recently sent
to tlo county board of supervisors
that persons were hunting on the
island of Molokai without a license
and when tho police approached
tho offenders they would tell the
police that they were tho possessors
of licenses but had failed to bring
tho same with them. Tho
Sheriff there asked for instructions
as to what he should do in such

The court asked the Deputy
County Attorney to make' a sta'e- -
mont who said that in the past sus-
pension of sentence had been ask-
ed for by tho prosecution in many
eases where it was felt that it was
for tho benefit of both the husband
and wife and in each case it had
proven satisfactory and none of
tho parties convicted had cone

sentence. This case seemed to be
an exception however and the
young man seemed to bo of the
opinion that ho could dodge sen
tence again and requested the
court to deal with the case as
severely as he thought the case
Tho Court then sentenced the
man to serve a sentence of ten days
