R. W. HOWELL,
lead many to bolievc that some
provision should be made for the
appointment of an oflicial steno
grapher whoso services would bo at
tho command of the Judge of the
Circuit Court when required, and
when not so required, to he trans
ferred to the District Court of Wai-
Such a step would, to my mind,
be in keeping with good business
methods, and well worth such sum
as tho County might be called up
on to appropriate towards a salary.
Under the present practice tho
testimony of all hearings had in
mo circuit uoun out ot term is
taken down, in substance only, by
j.n ino District uourt tne law re
quires tho Magistrate to reduce to
writing the substanco of the
testimony of all witnesses ap
pearing and testifying in overy
case. This is necessarily a very
slow process, involving much labor
on the part of the magistrate, and
tiresome waiting on tho part of
counsel, police officials, and all
concerned in a trial.
Not only this", but the completed
transcript, in the nature of things,
cannot bo as accurate, as valuable,
as satisfactory, and as fair to both
the defendant and Government, as
a stenographic report would be.
It had been proposed that some
arrangement bo entered into be
tween the Territory and 'County
for the joint employment of such a
stenographer. It mu3t be homo in
mind that it is tho tune of County
officials that ib wasted and lost un
der the present antiquated method
of doing business. I merely call
the matter to the attention of the
Board now, with tho statement
that I may later take tho liberty
of presenting and recommending
some workable plan that will mat
erially aid us in tho satisfactory
dispatch of Court business.
I desiro at this time to call your
attention more particularly to the
prevalence of the gambling ovil in
Owing to tho cosmopolitan popu
lation of these Islands and to tho
presence of such a largo number of
aliens, many of whom take to
gambling as naturally as they do
to eating and sleeping, and whoso
moral code recognizes no wrong in
tho practice, the gambling spirit is
at all times in our midst, its in
crease or decrease depending very
largely upon the activity of the
police department coupled with the
means at its disposal of securing
evidence necessary to bring about
