Happy New Year to von.
greeting to its readers. Old li'01 1ms done great things for VYai
luku, and you - U502 is golden with bright promises, but more
than mere matt.. ml prosperity is needed to build up a town. Our
churches and ministry should bo heartily supported, our schools
should bo kept at a high standard, tho morals and manner of the
children should bo corrected, wo should all pay our honest debts,
cultivate more social life and pay more attention to the sanitation
of our premises, if we wish to see Wailuku move forward in a well
rounded career of growth and prosperity. Same to you, Lahaina,
and many of them.
The News has now performed Us duty, -its plain and obvious
duty, in the matter of cleansing and purifying tho judicial ermine
on Maui, and it is up to Judge Kalua to vindicate himself or resign.
To attempt to ignore the matter is
its tiuth, which Judge Kalua. if honest with himself; would pro
bably d., if assured that such admission would end the matter.
The natural thing for Judge Kalua to do under the circumstances
will bo to appeal to the president
he was appointed, for a full, fair
career on Maui. Of cour.it; he would not dare to take such a risk
as that, and it is a tolerably safe
rather llian face such an investigation. But abler hands have taken

f4'j A recent editorial in Ihrs Independent says, in part; "When
the holidays are passed, it behooves tho leaders of the different
parties, to go to work at once. If they have the welfare of Hawaii
at heart, they should refrain from party measures and simply
agree to send tu Hie legislature the best men, Avho will act simply
for the welfare of Hawaii nei." Just so, Independent, just so,' and
please remember that the Maci News exhausted its puny strength
prior to tho last election to bring
not rather late now to take that step? The News had to remind
the Star not long since that such a proposition now, considered
seriously, is merely a last year's bird's nest. There is "nothing in
it. The Home Rulers have found

f tho Maui News is a man of good
intentions, but has now lost the con
lidence of tho majority of tho people

for the charges against Judro
Kalua are not of his own dclibera
tions. but merely here. say, coming
from such men as Geo. Hons (the
instigator) whose character is not at
11 enviable, together with a few
compatriots of ambitious motives to
occupy the much-coveted bench, so
undertook the pilgrim and after
light attempts 'the toe of tho
editorail staff of the Main News was
effectually applied' by giving
public print 'the thread bare subjects
of Judge Kama's dereliction' to wit:
First: Drunkenness in public, on
the streets, iu the church, on the
bench, and places almost too sacred
to be mentioneed.
I admit that Mr. Kalua drinks as
a freneral rule all men cirinii anu n
their pockets can hold out they will
continue to do so till they get drunk
but Judge Kalua was never drunk
(in tte sense implied) iu public, nor
on the streets, nor in the church nor
on the bench nor any other place in
such a way as to loose control of him
self. Credit is duo him for doing it
openly instead of being a hypocrit,
and right here it is appropriate to
R.iv as bv wav ' of comparison, that
Daniel Webster the great American
orator and stateman made his best
speeches iu congress when drunk.
Whai harm if a judge do if he takes
a drink? Is it so demoralizing? Are
the Hawaiians prohibitionists?
Second: In holding meetings with
orisoners deriving therefrom as in
timated, pecuniary profits.
As to. this it is suffice to say that
after having learnt from a supporter
of the Hons-clique tho prisoners
claimed to have been hampered by
Judge Kalua I went to see them and
they all. denied in toto of ever
having 'any confidential talk as last
Third: ignorance ot tno law m
having subordinates preparo his
duties such as instructions to juries
Well, it cannot disputed that
Judge Kalua is not able ' to speak
tho English language gramatically
but this deficient is made up by his
other gifts as for instance, his
motions his expressions and ear
nestness when talking English and
as to whether or not he understands
English I leave it to the public. As a
general rule all the Hawaiians
understand English very well but few
can speak it fluently and gramatical
ly As to having his subordinates
write his charges to the jury what
of it, when the 'manaos' the ideas
are his and all what the subordinates
did was simply to put it to writing
to frame It.
With these I say Kalua must not
go and 'am confident that if put to
tho people Judge Kalua will pull the
