OCTOBER 13, li)()G
Grand July's The CJ rand Jury of tho Second Circuit Court
Quick Work, was sworn in on Wednesday morning1 and at
three o'clock of the same day they were finally discharged for the
term having had but one case to consider and reported no true bill
For a County containing the thousands of people of dillerrnt
nationalities that this County does it certainly speaks well.
Few Counties, indeed, in tlto most advanced and enlightened
parts of the mainland can show such a good record as this and
wh"en we consider too, that in many parts of the County there are
thousands of people of different nationalities living in crowded
houses it is certainly surprising that wo can show such a clear
record as we have.
That there was no charge against any of the County officials was
what everyone expected, fur we have as clean and competent and
trustworthy a set of officials as could bo foutut any" here in the
States. Indeed, had there been an indictment against any one of
them it would have been a great surprise to all. As all of our
County ollicials are out for office again they all should be returned
to their respective offices for another term as a reward for the ex
cellent manner in which they have conducted the affairs of the
County during the time of initiating County (Jovernment.
Polotlcs and During the last month several of our Home
Patlzanship. Rule friends have been attacking the records
of the Kepblican County and District officers and trying to lead
the people to believe there has been graft and dishonest adminis
tration of public affairs. Last Saturday evening 11. J. K. Nawahi
ne, the Home Rule nominee for tho legislature, made tho most seri
ous changes of dishonesty against the road Department at Olowa
lu and Lahaina.
Edward Wilcox has been the most bitter in his denunciation
of Supervisor T. M. Church of Paia. Now it happened that
both of these gentlemen were members of the Grand Jury at La-
haina this week and both had every opportunity to bring charges
against any official who has been guilty of any offence. They not
only had an opportunity but it was their sworn duty to do so in
case they know of any offence having been committed.
Now what did these gentlemen do when under oath? They re
ported to tho Court: The County of Maui may well bo proud of
her record during the past four months as a law abiding communi
ty, and the citizens of Maui County are to bo congratulated in not
having the criminal records of their Courts bear witness to even
a single offence of a serious charcter.
No complaints concernino; the competency, efficiency or
honesty of any public official, or concerning irregularities
in any department of Government, have come to the notice
of this Jury, and we are aware of no conditions in our pub
lic life that call for cither investigation or criticism."
From this it will be seen that some of the" Jury at least are one
thing when making a partizan speech and another when under oath
and doing their duty as citizens.
, We congratulate the erentlemen on their honesty and for doing
their duty as citizens even though they fail to do so as political
A Severe Test. A few months ago the Federal Government
appropriated $30,000 to defray the expenses of (he Legislature of
the Territory of Hawaii on condition that tho members of the Lust
islature accept no remuneration for services in an extra session
that has been made necessary by the members in the past by refus
ing to pass the appropriation bills during the; regular sessions. It
was the editor of the News who first noted the full meaning of the
new law and at once called the attention of tho County Attorney to
the clause who agreed that we were correct in our views of the
meaning of the law.
In a recent issue of the Star tho matter is treated in the follow
"The next legislature will have presented to its individual mem
bers a test as severe as the "shiboleth" of the Israelites. They
will be called on to decide whether an appropriation of $30,000 from
the United States treasury to the Territory is worth the sacrifice
of $200 apiece by the members.
"The last session of congress included among its appropriations
one of $30,000 for the expenses of the legislature of Hawaii, condi
tioned however upon the agreement of the members of tho legis
lature not to accept pay for services at any extra or special session
of the legislature.
"What this.means may bi better understood by reference to the
custom of past legislatures which this conditional clause in the ap
propriation was intended to reach. Each of the three territorial
legislatures has purposely refrained from passing the appropria
tion bills during the sixty days of the regular session for the ex
press purpose of compelling the governor to extend the session,
thus securing to the legislators an aaditional $200 apiece. Under
the appropriation of this $30,000 by congress, the legislators can
compel the governor to extend the session i? it chooses or if it
really needs the additional time in which t transact its business,
but the members enn't accept pay for it, without its costing the
Territory just $30,000. Now there's a test of duty.
"Thirty thousand dollars does not pay the expenses of an Ha
waiian legislature. A regular and a special session cost us nearer
$75,000. But still every little helps, and $30,000 is at least a little.
If any convention had thought of it, it might have made a hit
with the voters, whatever it made to the candidates, by pledging
its candidates to forego their pay for the extended session in order
to enable the Territory to get tho $30,000 from tho Federal
"Perhaps the individual candidate might make a hit yet by an
nouncing in his campaign speeches that if elected ho will forego
claim to additional pay for an extended session of tho legislature
in order to help the Territory to that $30,000, i
"What candidates cau stand tho test?"
