Circuit Court Notes.
The March term of Circuit Court
ran well luto this week, and might
have continued longer, if juries could
have been had. Butou Monday morn
ing the Court found Itself against a
stone-wall on tbe proposition, and
was compelled to adjourn. The several
reason for this are as follows. In the
first place, out of the 160 names in
the Jury box, at least forty percent
were found to be ineligible for jury
duty for various reasons, which de
fect is chargeable ta the jury commis
sion appointed to select jurors. In
the second place, a small jury was
called for the term, and special ve
nires were drawn for special cases,
Until less than fifty names remained
tn the jury box, which under the cu
rious features of our present jury law,
could not be drawn out. The Court,
against the advice of the Deputy At.
torney.General, fceld that lrheu
n nne8 werrblice drawn from thejury
box, even to tr speciol capes, they
could not be again used during the
term. Consequently on last Monday
morning the jury were discharged
for the term, which was continued
for the rest of the week which his
been devoted to the disposition of
It is to bo frankly ndinit ted thu

New Bonk Building.
It is a matter of congratulation to
the citizens of Wailuku, as well as to
the stock holders of the Firt National
Bunk of Wailuku, that our local bank
is a growing institution. At their re
cent annual meeting the stockholders
of the bank voted to increase the
capital stock from $25,000 to $35,000
the additional stock to be taken at
their option by tbe original stock
holders, and it is stated that there
will be none of the new Issue of stock
left for outsiders.
Under the management of Cashier
C. D. J.ufkin, the business of the bank
has outgrown its original quarters in
the Robinson Block, and ground has
been broken to erect a fine two-story
bank building on Main street, op
posite the lao Stables. The erection
of the building has been awarded to
William Betters, a Honolulu archi
tect who will begin work next week,
ond it is the intention of the diiectors
to have it completed and ready lor
occupancy by June 1.
The building will be of wood, two
stories high, about 25 by 50 ft. in
dimensions and will front on Main
street, with a lanai running the en
tire length of the front. The whole
lower floor will be devoted to the pur
poses of the bank, and will be elegant-
ly nttea up ror the purpose. The up
per floor will be partitioned into
three commodious offices, and water
will be piped throughout the building,
An important feature of the new
bank building will be the steel
vault 7 by 10 feet, with steel walls 14
inches thick enclosed in an outer wall
of cement and railroad iron. Within
the large .vault will be chilled-steel
vaults of smaller size, adapted for
the purpose of safe deposit vaults.
I he new bank- building, blue print
plans of which may be seen at the
bank, will when completed, be no less
an ornament to Wailuku than an elo
quent witness to the fact that Wai
luku is yet a growing town.
