Judge McCully In charging the jury, aid in
substance: Thit in tliii cac the jury must
cither find a verdict of guilty or not, an charged
by the indictment j that the cue wai not one
where a verdict of manslaughter could lie found.
He dilated at Mime length ujmn the evidence
on liotli sides. He said, the fact that poison
v. as found in Knrnailc's body must be found ;
that if the jury found tint Kamailc's dcatli had
been caused thereby, it remained for tficm to
decide whether or not the poison was adminis
tered by liana. He spoke at some length
upon the value of taxlcological chemistry in
the detection of crime that in many instances
might without its application remain undis
covered, and spoke in eulogy of the work that
hid been performed by Dr. Slangenwald in
in this case. He said that, if Kamailc had
died by poisoning and that if 'Tie poison used
was trjehnia, he must have received it sub
sequently to his dcjiarlurc from the house of
liana's parents. I Ic charged the jury to weigh
the matter well, and to give the prisoner the
benefit of any reasonable doubt.
The jury retired, and after an absence of half
an hour returned with a unanimous verdict of
N. II. It will be in place just here to correct
a slight mistatcment of the evidence given by
Dr. Stangcnwakl, which occurcd in our last
issue. Dr. Stangenwald testified to having
found strvchnia in the viscera of both animals
sent to him for analysis; but none in the meat
he had received.
TE NATIVE PKESS.
THE CORONATION DAY.
(Written for the Kuokoa )
Fcople of Hawaii, we are moving on and ap
proaching the performances of the 12th of Feb
ruary next, to be distinguished by the Corona
tion of their majesties. The King's chief
steward are extended in supplication to all
who have been invited, urging them to come
in a body to Honolulu, that this ceremony
may be well attended.
It is quite probable that there will be a large
attendance of those who have been invited
from all parts as well as of those who come as
Some will come merely to look upon this
novelty, and for nothing else. Some will come
in a critical spirit to judge of the nature of the
performances, whether they arc such as tend to
enhance the sacreJntts and the real dignity of
these sovereigns. And some will come and
judge truly of what is done, that it is merely a
means of wasting the hard earned substance
for which llicyhave poured out the sweat of
their brow, a prodigal squandering and wast
ing on ephemeral pleasures. God pity jour
people, 0 citizens who pay tribute I could jou
but sec the true inwardness of the affair.
Oh, je people 1 by mixing jounelvesup with
this frivolity jou are making light of jour'own
burdens and dancing at )our own funeral.
Some arc coming wrapped about with the
rainbow tinted cloud of joy, and they will
calmly ogle with their stony, sensual cjes, de
claring it "a fine thing that the money ofthese
people should be spent to give us a glorious
time; and as for )ou, what care we?"
The last legislature made an appropriation
for this work of $10,000 for the coronation
It will all be spent, not a cent of it will re-
main, nor will it suffice, and the cabinet lias
tried to plunge their hands stealthily into an
other appropriation, that of $20,000 for the
entertainment of foreign guests who will come
to witness the coronation, and to transfer this
to the coronation fund. This large sum of
money has been transferred to the coronation
These unjust tranfers by the cabinet, and
expenditures by the coronation committee are
the reasons why jou 0 people, are invited to
come and w itness the wasting of your money
in mere show, and if jou join the multitude
that rushes into witness these worthless per
.ormances, then j-ou approve of this expense.
You Hawaiian who'are posvestcdjjf com
mon sense, stand firm, and use your wits, lest
you be ticlrajed into countenancing that which
jou approve not ; put to yourselves the qucv
lion shall we go and witness the squandering
of our substance? Will you attend at the invi
tation of the King' committee, that they and
the l'rcmicr may think that the nation ap
prove! of their squandering ?
Hawaiian, if we enter not into the arcm of
these transactions we shall be strong, and
when the election of 1884 arrives, with its
legislature, the work on the side of the right
and on behalf of the prosperity of the land will
be hot. ISut if we take part in this traasac
lion wc shall be discomfited. Our safety is in
our own hands, there is no trusting to our mis
The money is being spent on this amphi
theatre and temporary balcony for the corona
tion, for kahilis and red robes, for hula feasts,
for regattas and horse races, for companies of
soldiers and numerous other similar shows.
These things are consuming the money so that
there will not lie left a dollar of the $30,000.
Tor appropriating the $20,000 to these ex
penses, the hands of the ministry will doubtless
be roasted in a hot fire in the legislature of
1883, inasmuch as it is at variance witti
clause in the appropriation bill of r88z. That
the nation may be able to bring a strong oppo
sition against these evil actions, it seems to us
that the right course to be pursued is not to
mix ourselves up with this debauchery.
Again, if the intention of the coronation
committee is carried out according to their an
nouncement, then this committee will perceive
that its instructions carry weight, and the chair
man of the coronation committee will, it is
likely, become ovtr confident, and in his
character as I'remicr will lay the matter before
his colleagues', and will attempt under one
guise or another to count in other sums besides
this $30,000, collected by the whirlwind of
heartlessness of these men withom Imwels.
If jou enter into this ring then jou will
place new burdens on jour own shoulders,
wailing and sorrow, and therefore we earnestly
beseech of jou all to consider that the ex
travagance imposed by the legislature of 1882
w ill be greatly increased, prov ided you person
ally attend and tread the floor of that amphi
theatre of debauchery.
Again, the coronation committee have com
manded the voters to choose representatives
from the districts, and this election will have
an authority somewhat like that of the legisla
ture itself. Under this election these represen
tatives will doubtless be urged to run up other
expenses, for clothing perhaps, or for the trav
elling expenses of those who have come to
swell the multitude. In regard to all these
things our pen would warn our nation, that
jou may think of these things, and that jou
may be slow to take part of this procession and
enter the amphitheatre.
Take note, O people of I law aii! andconsider
that three of our high chiefs will not take part
in these performances; Queen Dowager
Emma, Her Roj-al Highness K. Kcehkolani
and the Hon. Mrs. C. K. Ilishop. This is a
wise and patriotic move, and tends towards
economy in government. It would seem as if
they were the very ones who should attend, if
they were seeking their own interests, and
were desirous of showing honor to one another
in appropriate ways ; but if they stand aloof
and decline to go, then surely we outsiders are
far removed from any interest in this affair.
Fellow representatives, in my hand is a let
ter of invitation, and in mj chararter as a rep
resentative to the legislature, even though my
attendance (at the coronation) might not be a
sufficient reason why the committee should go
bej-ond its authoritj and Inflict greater evils on
the people, jit these cnntideiations do not de
tract from my duty to seek with mj strength
the good of our land and of the race.
