Further attacks against the testi
mony given by Wong Wah and Chin

were made yesterday by numerous wit
nesses for the defense in the trial of
Cliin Jung Hin, president of the.'Suey

years ago and shortly after joined? the

given by Won. See, who was brought
here from Los Angeles to assist the

Won See brought with him a copy
of the alleged tong record, wherein it

New Collector of Customs for Hono
lulu Readies Post.
HONOLULU. T. H.. Dec. 19. (Spe
cial.) Colonel Howard Hathaway, of
Everett, Wash., recently appointed col
lector of customs for Honolulu, arrived
in the city today. The new official
came direct from Washington, D. C,
and one of his first acts was to de
clare that he never sought the office.
The Colonel admitted that he had
been recommended for the position by
the Democratic state central committee
of Washington. Honolulu people gen
erally held that the office should have
been given to Ralph S. Johnston, deputy
collector, who had been in that posi
tion for the past IS years.
