To Hon. John W. Iyalua; Justice
Presiding, Circuit. Court, 2nd Circuit,
hold at Wailuku, Maui on the 5th day
of June, 1901.
Mny it please the Court: We, the
undersigned members of the Grand
Jury for this term would respectfully
report to your honorable Court as
follows: We commenced our duties
on the (ith day of June and
on Saturday, June 15, 1!I01.
We would respectfully report
your honorable Court as follows:-
The Grand Jury has sriven consid
erable time, attention and investiya
tion to the illicit sale of spiritious
liquors, more especially in the Dis
trict of Lahaiua.
From the evidence brought before
us we have no doubt that there has
lieen and is a verj largj illicit tralfic
in the District, of Lahaina, but owing
to the reticence of witnesses, and
convenient lapse of memory, wit!
other causes, we were unable to
bring but one indictment for illicit
liquor selling, viz., against G. G.
Seong, a Chinese store keeper of
Lahaina. And this Grand Jury has
reason to believe that their action in
the matter enablod the Government
officials to make an extensive seizure
of liquor in G. G. Seong's store.

Scott, manager of Macfarlane & Co.
in Wailuku, Mr. John Richardson has
been appointed by Macfarlane & Co. ,
what they call their distributing
agent in Lahaina. From this same
evidence, we find that Mr. Richard

In the matier of J. E. Kekipi,
against whom there was a complaint
laid for obtaining a' deed from a na
tive uaiped R. Mia and his wifoKaho-
pewai under false pretenses. We
have made quite an fxhaustive inves
tigation, and find that there has
been a great fraud perpetrated by
this J. E. Kekipi, by his working on
the religious feelings or fanaticism
of these two natives. We regret ex
ceedingly that on consultation with
the Deputy Attorney-General, to find
that there is no statute in the Haw
aiian laws which will permit us to
bring in an indictment against J. E.
Kekipi. In connection with this case,
Mr. M. P. Waiwaiole does not ap
pear to have acted in a thoroughly
upright and conscientious manner in
his canacitv as a Notary Public. It
would appear from the evidence pro
duced that there was more or less of
a conspiracy between Mr. Waiwaiole
and Mr. Kekipi to obtain the signa
tures of Mia and his wife to this deed,
when, from Waiwaiole's own evidence,
he, (Waiwaiole) was awaro of the
fact that Mia and his wife signed the
deed under the impression that they
were signing a mortgage.
We would further report that some
of the police officers in testifying be
fore the Grand Jury, have admit
ted the fact that they are in the hab
it of threatening and intimidating
witnesses for the purpose of obtain
ing evidence in criminal matters.
This in our opinion is not desirable,
and should be discontinued.
We appointed a committee consist
ing of V. A. Vetlesen, W. E. Beck-
with and Jas. Kirkland to inspect
the books of the Police Department,
which report is annexed hereto and
is embodied in our report.

From the report of the special
committee of the Grand Jury, ap
pointed to expert tho books of the
Sheriff s Office, there appears to
have been some carelessness in the
matter of taking monthly trial bal
ances, and also in the matter of mak
ing entries in lead peucil.
They also report that on May 31,
there is a cash balance of $1,J12.45
on hand, as follows:
I. O.U's 4S7.00

So far as the lead pencil entry
above referred to is concerned, it
appears that only one lead pencil
entry was found and this was one
wmcn was recently made, and it is
apparent from inspection that it was
iutended simply as a memorandum of
an entry to be made later, being
wnat is commonly unown among
bookkeepers as an "open entry.
Sheriff Baldwin explained to the
Mews representative that the above
I. O. U's do not represent borrowed
monies, but are simply overdrafts or
rather drafts made on the funds on
band, to meet nercussary current
expenses of a pressing nature, when
there is not time to wait to have
these expenses reported to Honolulu
