Lame from infantile paralysis, Mrs. Hope was unable to resist when the' masked man robbed, gagged, bound and attacked her. The outlying section of Honolulu in which the victim lived adapted itself to the crime. Her home is one of many small cottages, vine clad and set apart, with vacant spaces of woods and fields between them.

Reports that large sums had been' raised by the navy personnel to aid in the defense of Mrs. Fortescue and her codefehdants were discredited by Admiral Stirling, although he had1 heard that ?4,000 had been given vol untarily by men at Pearl Harbor. He said other funds might have been sub scribed by navy people without his I knowledge. , J. H. Hope To Return To Islands Sian t)iegoCal, Feb. 29 UP) J. H.
