, 'We wish! to call special attention
to .the work , of the City and County
Attorney;,' and his assistants. - Their
work has been thorough, conscientious
and faithfully performed; They have
always been courteous, and willing to
go to extremes in accommodating the
Jury, and have been more, than fair
in presenting the cases for.couBidera-
well taken care of. The discipline is
thorough throughout, and great care
is-iglven to the welfare and health of
the inmates. v
4,Great credit Is due to both High
Sheriff Henry and County Jailor Asch
for the manner In which they are con
ducting their respectlye offices. It Ij
with pleasure that we learn that In
the near future larger and better Ac
commodations - will be afforded theso
departments by the erection of a new
territorial and county Jail.

"Prompt trials have i been given
where: tiTie bills have been founds and
Jt will be noted; that of the 17 cases
now pending trial, the delay is caused
by the sickness and Inability' of the
counsel for jthe, defendants to try.Jthe
cases. It is to be hoped that the gov
erning powers win recognize the' abfK
ity and untiring work of this depart
ment, and we trust that Nothing will
be done to. affect he able ; and effi
cient ' administration of the depart
.meat either ia reducing ;jlhe force or
ralarles -of these men.
? "It has been our experience that a
largo hUintwr of itrimcs, both of lesser
and greater degree, can be laid di
rectly at the door of what is known
aa "Dago; Red.? Thi3 wine, we are
told,' la vnadulteratcd, but is sold and
csedwlven young. The effect of thisJ
new wine Is awful, and quickly de
Trivea lit users of their senses. Some
action should be taken by the legisla
ture to stop its use while in this stage.
We would suggest that a law prohi
biting the : importation -and use of
wihes under three years ' of age be
passed. This, we believe; wpuld tend
to' stop the excessive i-use of wine
that now causes so much injury.
"Another matter whicn calls for at
tention is the frequent cases of car
nal abuse of female children. Much
good-has been done by the men and
women connected with the various
missions n this city. Through their
efforts, cases of this nature have been
brought to the attention of the auth
orities, who have also given their best
efforts in conducting the cases. You
wjlinote that all of , these cases where
convictions have been found, life im
prisonment has been: the sentence.
Praise for Henry. T i
The prisons, both territorial and
county, have . been carefully inveti-
Extensive Alterations rr are n eces
eary - in border to properly accommo
date the inmates and police force, and
we recommend that tnc matter of Im
provement in this line be , given at
tention immediately Uy :"-e proper au
thorities. The force at the sheriff's
command Is wholly Inadequate. Ah
Increase of f oot police, mounted patrol
and bicycle police are absolutely
necessary," for without proper and
sufficient officers, the sheriff can but
be handicapped in his work.
More Patrol .Boxes
I The . police patrol boxes should be'
Increased, and; a -new switch board,
for the system ' -should be Installed.'
The .present, one is not sufficient to
accommodate the fourteen new sta
tions already purchased.
"In order to secure the best and
most efficient men : for the mounted
patrol, we believe that" the county
should feed and care for the horses,
and in fact would recommend that the
county own and provide the horses
for the mounted patrol as under such
conditions better and more efficient
officers would be available.
"The men should be regularly
drilled in the use of fire arms, and
we , believe arrangements could be
made so that they could be instructed
by . the national guard with very little
expense to the department.
"There are a; large number of rifles
and revolvers stored in the station
house, but never used. They are
kept clean and in order. The style
of ' these are, however, old and an
tiquated, and we believe they should
be disposed of, and an .up-to-date
equipment furnished. Great credit is
due the sheriff for the efficient man
ner in which he is conducting this
department, particularly so as he is
handicapped by an Insufficient force.
Schools in, Good Order
; "We have made an inspection of
the public school system and find the
same to be in excellent order with
advances being made in all depart
gated. Both of these institutions are ments. A certificate of health from
the teachers and a physical examina
tion of the pupils being a new re
quirement which adds greatly to the
up-keep of the public health.
"The matter of teachers being drop
ped for cause in eertafn schools was
considered and we have no comments
to xrakc on the actions of the board of
commissioners of public instruction,
who are apparently well Qualified to
handle such matters.
Two Sessions Plan.
"In regard to the two-session move
to accommodate the children who
would otherwise miss school, we find it
working out satisfactory to all con
"We visited the Kaahumanu. Kaiu
lani. Pohukaina and Normal schools.
Interviewed teachers and principals,
and our recommendations are as fol
lows: "Provide a place for orphans and not
to send them to the reform school, this
being a great injustice to little child
ren who by misfortune are without
guardisns. Provide a hospital depart
ment for the Boys' Industrial School
at WaiaJee. That the two-seesion idea
be entered in school administration in
the territory, but in order to secure
the use of school buildings to the full
est extent teachers be provided for
both morning and afternoon sessions
with an extension of hours of each.
The grand Jury also reports, on the
conduct and conditions it found in the
school 8, jails, courts and other public
institutions, and made several recom
mendations regarding repairs ajid the
like. It also visited the boys reform
school at Walalee, and, makes many
suggestions regarding the management
of the institution, recommending that
poi machines be installed. Continuing,
the report says:
Would Separate Boys.
"In, the opinion of your committee a
great mistake is evident at the school
through the fact that boys of all ages,
from " five' years to twenty years arc
allowed to intermingle and as there
are not enough teachers to give con
stant supervision to all of the boys, the
question naturally arises as to whether
those of tender and more susceptible
ages are not likely to learn bad habits
from the older and more . hardened
ones. v, ''.;vv;.V,;t
V "With this . point in view.'.your com
mittee makes a strong plea for, a sep
arate and sufficiently commodious dor
mitory .to accommodate fall the boys
under fen years of age, and that this
dormitory be placed at such a distance
from the other dormitories as to en
able the teachers to keep the JIttle
boys from mingling with the older
ones, also we consider j t essential to
the proper care; of the young boys that
a patron bo placed in ; charge of this
WOTOilpry, and we would so recom
"We would finally recommend that
the Board of Education provide a con
tingent or upkeep fund which may'4e
drawn on . when necessary, as unless'
some means are provided whereby the
new buildings may be kept in a good
state of" repair it" Is possible hat' af
fairs may' gradually follow the tineT.bt

old regime? WheK'theyTwili get; to be

earnestly hope will be given, heed to,
ig ba o fthe enlargement of the lace
in keeping with the growth of the In
st tution - and the increased .tax- npon

County of Honolulu. We' find hat the
ir-Htitution is taxed to its utmost capa

now being erected to accommodate au
aiuidonal number of inmates we
that the ground space is Inadequate
tor the practical confinement of the
inmates It was shown to us that the
TeiTitpry owns land adjacent to the
present quarters which can be enclos
ed. "We recommend that the next legis
lature be urged to provide a sufficient
s;im to consumate this enlargement
of the asylum enclosure, and to pro
vide sufficient funds for the condemna
tion of any small parcels of land which
n-ay be found necessary, and for the
fencing of the proposed enclosure.
Praises Fire Department
"The fire department is in very good
condition and great credit is due to
Chief Thurston for the efficient man-!
ner in which he is conducting , the
same. ,. During the past year i the
board of supervisors has improved the
equipment considerably by purchasing
tree combination chemical and hose
motor-wagons, one engine "motor
tractcr and 3000 feet of new' hose.
"Ail the buildings and equipment
were found in good condition, clean
and well taken care of. The hook
and ladder truck was purchased about
ten years ago but has never been used
owing to a lack of crew and horses.
In our opinion, said truck is now an
tiquated and should be disposed of aa
soon as possible. We believe that on
account of. the many high buildings a
hook and ladder truck Is necessary,
and recommend that the board of su
pervisors purchase an up-to-date
"We understand that the officers
and men of the department are
drilled regularly and they seem to be
efficient In order to. get the best ser
vice possible from the men we recom-
mand that t ho fnrra ha lnrftMl h-w
three men. . ... I
uuriuf, Liie past lew j cai a ui coi-
dent sections of the city have been
so extended that It seems imperative
to establish fire stations in these sec
tions, viz.. Walkiki, Mnoa,Nuuanu
and Kalihi' The first step In this di
rection has already been taken by , the
board of supervisors by appropriating
a sufficient fund to build a station at
KaimukL ' ' ' - '' " '
Water Problem. ., 4 , 4
"One of the most serious conditions
to be considered Is that of the water
supply. . Notwithstanding the fact that
a large sum of money has been spent
in constructing a large Reservoir in
upper Nuuanu valley and In -.laying
new ' mains ' In the downtown section
of the; city, results show that, little Im
provement has i been - effected in the
way of increasing the pressure for fire
fighting purposes. '-Mipzii
. '-We Wish t point out a few recom
mendations, which, if carried put may
save the County : some money and' in
other instances do away with a good
deal of red tape.. , -
" "We suggest:' ' ' s
"That the publication of resolutions
calling for appropriations of money
as well as ordinances, as noted in
Section 17 and 19 of the mnnlclpal
charter and as amended, - be limited
to one issue each.. - This course would
saye not only valuable time, but would

TWe would suggest that section ; 54
be so amended that publication Qf the
