KALUA MUST GO.
It has been the fixed policy of the
News to avoid attacking private
individuals, and there is no disposi
tion to overstep that policy now.
But individuals who occupy pub"
lie positions are subject to public
criticism for their official acts, and
tho News would be remiss in its du
ties to the public- if it should fail to
voice public sentiment in those cases
where a public official is derelict in
his duties or so conducts himself as
to unlit himself for tho proper per
formance of his official duties.
Judge John W. Kalua must go.
Tho News, in taking up this fight,
does so deliberately, and after ma
ture consideration of the responsibili
ty which it is assuming,a9 well ns the
probable results. "Thrice armed is
he who hath his quarrel Pjust,"
and this paper will continue the fight
until cither Judge Kalua voluntarily
steps down from the bench which he
has disgraced, or until the toe of the
presidential boot is effectually ap
plied. To those who are intimately ac
quainted with the public career of
Judge Kalua for the past few years,
no specification of charges is needed,
because his derelictions are well
known and are thread-bare subjects
But definite charges will be pub
lished by this paper, if Judge Kalua
refuses to listen to its advice, and
to an almost universal sentiment of
condemnation among the people of
Maui, and refuses to resign the
judgeship of the Second Circuit.
To those who are not familiar with
the facts in the case, it may bo sug
gested that drunkenness in public,
on the streets, in the Church, on the
bench and at other places almost too
sacred to mention, will be wrfong the
charges officially preferred. Inti
mate and confidential conversations
between himself and prisoners who
were afterwards to be tried before
him, and promises mado by him to
them, which they afterwards inad
vertently revealed to others, and
which promises were afterwards
scrupulously performed by him on the
bench, will be enquired into, and
the hidden motive for such promises,
if any, will be dug up and brought to
His ignorance of law, and his ineffi
cient, not to say corrupt administra
tion of it, the fact that his charges
to grand juries and his instructions
to petit juries, have to be prepared
by his subordinate court officials is a
charge which he will, if ho persists
in refusing to resign, be called upon
to answer officially.
Other grave charges will also be
preferred against him, Mf he courts
an investigation of them, but the
present object of the News is merely
to give him a mild intimation in a
friendly way that his resignation
from the judgeship of Ihe Second
Judicial Circuit would be considered
an inestimable boon to the justice
loving people of Maui.
v It will avail Judge Kalua nothing
to claim than the presort attack is
inspired against him simply because
he is a poor Kanaka, a claim which
he recently made, and Hawaiians
themselves are warned against such
pleas made by Lira. It is not because
he is Hawaiian, but rather because
he is a disgrace to the position he
fills, that his resignation is demand
ed, and none will appreciate this fact
so keenly as the Hawaiians of Maui,
who are thoroughly conversant with
Jiuke Kalua and his methods.
TO W. F. POGUE OF KllIB!.
There is not a plantation manager
01 tho Islands who deservedly stands
higher in the goo.l-wili of his employ
ees than W. F. Pogue late manager
O'l Tuesday last a largo number
of the prominent employees of the
plantation assembled at his residence
and presented him with an elegant
gold watch, chain and diamond locket,
as a tol fu of their, ester in and re
gard. It was an open faced watch
with Mr. Poguf's monogram on the
outside of the back case. On
the inside was the following inscrip
tion; "To W. F. Pogue, as a token
of esteem aim regard, from the em
ployees of Kihei Plantation Co "
Speech making was attempted
both by the donors and the rec ipient,
but it was one of those occasions in
which chords too deep for utterance
were touched, and the eloquent
silence, accentuated by convulsive
twitcliiugof strong men's faces told
better than mere words how much
of genuine love and esteem exists be
tween Mr. Pogue uud his, late em

that the movement some time sini-i

It was at first proposed that
Band should stop over a week
Maui on their return from Ililo.
as they remain for two weeks on
big island, and two weeks on Maui,
it was thought Letter to defer the
Maui trip till about the first of Feb.
Professor Berger impressed upon
the Iews representative the fact
that tho band will pay their own
way on Maui, a.;d that no contribu
tions for this purpose will be asked
or even permitted from the people
of Maui, in fact nothing will be accept
ed unless it bo an occasional fresh
lei of ilima and maile.
It is desirable however, that the
citizens of Maui should nrrantro a
program or schedule of appointments
for the band, and also provide proper
band stands and light. Prof. Berger
states that nothing save a violent
Kona storm will prevent his arrival
with his full band of thirty-two
people on Maui on or about the
first of February, for a fortnight's
visit, and fully equipped with a full
score of the latest operatic and
Bogged the Burglar.
Deputj Sheriff A. N. Hayselden
and Capt. Win. Saffury of tho Wai
luku police force did a neat piece of
detective work this week, in captur
ing the burglar who broke the win-
lows of Hoffmann & Vetlescn, Rod
rigues & Rodrigues and Lovejoy &
Co. 's stores last week.
Tt proved to be a Japanese named
flosie, a recent arrival in Wailuku.
flo.sie admitted tin.- burglaries, and
two watches tak'"i from Hoffmann
& Vetlesetvs Store were found in his
possession. Another one was found
in Wailuku yesterday and the remain
ing three watches have been located
at Lahaiua, and will be recovered.
On Wednesday, Ihe body of a Jap
anese was found hanging to a kiawe
tree near the railroad between
Sprcckelsville and Paia. A coroner's
jury was empaneled, but it was im
possible to identify tho remains, as
tho act had been committed months
ago. and the body was in an advanc
ed state of decomposition.
On Thursday evening a Porto Ric-
an, who was sutlermg from senile de
mentia, hanged himself in his house at
the Spanish camp, Camp 5, Sprcck
elsville. Recently he had importun
ed the plantation physician for 'pois
on with which to end his life. He
leaves no family.
