March Term, 1904.
To the Honorable John W. Kalua,
Presiding Judge of the Circuit Court
of the Second Circuit:
We the undersigned Grand Jurors
of your Houorable Court beg tohiake

We have investigated 9 cases. Wo

; Irregularities in Public Office.
In reirard to your Honor's charge
to the Grand Jury in the mutter of
alleged irregularities ' In "Public Of
fice; wo find; ; ' ' -
(I.) Police Department: That it
is customary for members of the Po
ice Force of Wailuku to be offered
and to accept free drinks in the va
nous saloons, we also find that where
Officers have been detailed to per
form certain detective work they
forthwith proceeded to warn those
whom they were set to detect. That
policeman on duty have been found
intoxicatea. it appears to your
Jury very forcibly that there is an
extreme lack of discipline and loyalty
in this Department.
We find ou investigations that the
Sheriff's Department have names on
the (Special Police) Pay Rolls in
whose names warrants are drawn
and who are not actually connected
with the Police Force. This was ex
plained to us by the Sheriff and his
Clerk as a matter of convenience In
order to obtain funds for that part of
the service, which were not obtain
able otherwise. The obtaiping of such
funds may be necessary, bnt the
method by which such funds are ob
tained we most severely condemn
(2) Jails and Jailers' Department
Alter a motougii investigation wt
find the Wailuku Jail in a very tinsan
itary and unsafe eondition. In this
Department also discipline is ex
tremely lax. We find that the sides
and the front of the cells are so rot
ten that by a slight pressure of the
hand they can be shaken. The fence
around the Jail Yard Is in a most di
lapidated condition. The' sills of
portion of the Jail are so rotten that
it is really unsafe, On inspection of
the Jail Yard and out buildings the
unsanitary condition of the place be
comes most apparent. The Jailor on
being questioned stated that the
Leper cells were never furaigat
cd only white-washed. The Lepe
water closet wa9 resting on long
sills over an open vault very much
larger than the building; tin cans
rubbish.etc. were so conspicuous tha
it appeared to your Grand Jury that
the yard had not been swept oi
cleaned for months. Iu regard to
care of prisoners. We find that the
care and discipline is extremely lax
Prisoners have been taken by th
Jailor on Sundays t Iao Valley to
gather guavas to make guava jelly
for the Jailor 6 private use. The pris
oners are allowed on Sundays to roam
promiscuously over the country with
out a guard on an excuse of looking
for a suitable place to cut grass fo
the Police Stables, and on one occa
sion a prisoner returned intoxicated
prisoners are also sent every Sunday
morning without guards to Kahului
with policemen's horses to bathe them
Regarding to distribution of Prison
labor. We find that the Sheriff Las
had in his private employ from Aug.
11th, 1903 to Dec. 31st, 1903 the sum
total of 420 meu or an average of 3
men per day, for the above period.
TlXeputy Sheriff has had' the ser
vices, for his private use, of one pris
oner each day, in this case 'the pris
oner some times returning to the Jail
as late at 9 o'clock P. M. There are
3 grass..c.'itters and one stablemau for
the Police Ktables wbfch consists of a
6table for th free care and feeding
of the Department's private horses,
grain however for these horses is not
furnished by the government.
The balance of the prisoners fit for
work have been turned over to the
Wailuku Road Board.
Considering the very bad conditions
in which the roads and pjblic hiul.-
ways of the District ( Wniluku are in,
we strongly criticize the private use
of so much pris.m labor by the heads
of the Police Department. The al
lowing of prisoners to be iale out at
night at the residence of ' the Deputy
Sheriff is strongly disapproved of; all
prisoners should be locked up in their
cells before dark. It seems to' your
Grand Jury that the old and invalid
prisoners should better attend to the
auitary improvement of thePremises
than to bb acting as nurses for the
.In the matter of Prison Supplies,
your UranuJury have made an ex-
laustive examination of the Provision
Uills or the Jail at v ailuku. t or six
months ending December, 1903, we. find
that the average cost per day to fet d
prisoners and their guards amounted
lo lhuty-hve cents per day per
man. lhis we believe can ce copsio

by the Juilor and Guards; for instance

for this branch of the Public Service.
at present there being no system
(3j Roads and
We find that former Grand Jurie
have from time to time made reports
recommending the abatement of ccr
tain encroachments and evils on tl,t
highway and as far us your Gi'utx
Jury can find, absolutly no attention
has been paid by the proper Officials
to these reports and recommenda
tions. The encroachments and ob
structions are as apparent today on
the streets and roads of Wailuku as
on the day when the nrst urana
Jury Reports condemning them were
made. We therefore Hud that it is
iiot neccessary to mention individual
encroachments but would strongly re
commend that the Roard Board of the
District of Wailuku be reorganized
and that the Superintendent of Pub
lic Works appoint a Road Board that
will to tay the least acknowledge the
existence of the Grand Jury, in this
Circuit and pay some attention to
In conclusion, we would say that the
Executive Department of the Public
Service appears to have been curried
on with absolute honesty financial
ly; but that discipline and loyalty In
the subordinates and executive force
in tne Superior office are lacking
and we can not too strongly urge the
proper officials to take action to car
ry on the Department '.honestly and
fearlessly, not only financially but in
all of its branches and thus gain forthe
executive department of the Public
service the proper respect and con
fidence from the Public
Reports of Former Grand Juries,
In accordance with the Suggestion
in your charge, we have undertaken
to consider the Repot ts and recom
mendations of former Grand Juries
Unfortunately we were unable to ob
taiu but three of these reports, First
June Term 1901, Second June Term
1902 and Third October Term 1903,
V?e trust that your Honor will call
the attention of the proper officials
to a better care and filing of Pub
Hack Stands. This Grand Jury
believes that the selection of the
Hapk Stands for Wailuku andLahai
ua is entirely within the province of
the Sheriff and not a matter to be con
s';dered be this Grand Jury. We re
commend that a Police Officer should
be detailed as hack Inspector in con
nection with his other duties.
Fish-Market. Your Grand Jury'
have visited the present market and
most severely condemn the present
system of obstructing a public thor
oughfare with produce displayed for
sale. We consider the present meth
od of exposing fish for sale and the
present so called Fishrnarket as u
menance to public health, we would
draw the attention of the proper
Authorities to this matter. We
would call the attention of the proper
Authority to the fact that Wailuku
should have a Fish Market and that
In oi der to obtain such market, the
proper authorities should formulate
and proclaim proper rules and regu
lations for governing the same. The
choice of a site for a market should,
be left with the people otHVallulnr to
be approved oy the Board of Health.
Maui Hotel Bar Room. The atten
tion of your Grand Jury has been ca:l
l to the open selling of liquor oi
Suudays to the public by this institu
te. The open Eolation of their Li
cense by the Maui Hotel Bar has bet n
admitted by those in cHirire. at.(!
that they continue to sell Liquor ut
all times to any, whether guest or
otherwise every day in the week, in
cluding Sundays. We strongly re-
oinmend that the proper Officials
take action to require the Proprietor
of the Maui Hotel tostrictlv conform
with his Liquor License.

Upon receiving the above report,
Judge Kalua dismissed the grand
jury in the following words:

that I receive your report, which is
the evidence of your strict attention
to the arduous duties to which you
were assigned in the interests of the
