apples. Oahu took tho lead in the mutter, with Maui as an enthu
siastic secondhand now Hawaii is swinging into lin. The day is

come from this source alone. In a few years the Islands will be
dotted with pineapple canneries, with the vast west and norfhvest
for a rich murlfet. Small farming on tho Islands is a certainty, and
piheapules ura'-jhutone of its many unique industries which have
long been awaiting development. Prepared bananas, either pre
served or pulverized is another coming industry, which is bound
tb bring a large revenue to the Islands as soon as the right men
take hold of. it,- y.uava jelly is coming to the front and will be a
large export" These are a few of the may auxiliary industries
which are to be developed here, and the promises are that tliere
are many more, including castor oil, vanila, tea, cotton and coffee.
It is only a ques' ion of time.

interests in local matters. , But listen. Several years since the
News man in a private conversation was discusssing this identical
proposition with a hardshell republican who concluded the discus
sion with the assertion that he would rather see the republican
party on Maul defeated than to' see it win out on combination. H
had his wishes granted, but a serious moral lies behind it. It is now
as true as ever that the best elements on Maui must be combined,
and until this is done, home rule misrule will prevail.

light of Jay can be turned upon any
transaction in public life where there
is suspicion ot criminality. In your
investigations of encroachments on
tho public thoroughfares, the cross
ing of railroads, etc., and such other
matters of puolic interests, I would
suggest that you take into consiuViV
ation the teports and recommenda
tions of former Grand Juries. The
SheriiT of this Circuit lias called this
Court's .attention to the absence of
any sanitary regulation concerning
market places, without which the
recommendations of the last Grand
Jury could not be, carried into effect.
Another matter the Sheriff submit
ted is that regarding the use of the
public highways as hack stands by
licensed vehicles, in Wailuku as well
as iu Lahaina. Being a representa

such recommendations as to localities
you may make, with such suggestions
as to regulations to be enacted, would
very materially assist the Depart

with this public need. ' '
Your deliberations must ' be gov
erned without fear or favor, and with
absolute secrecy. All persons ap
pearing before your council should be
admonished to keep inviolate what

to by you in making out a prima facie
case before you return a "true bill."
It must satisfactorily appear to you
that there is reason to believe that a

before you find an indictment.
There must must be at least thir
