CHARGE TO THE GRAND
Gentlemen of the Grand Jury:
You have been summoned to at
tend this Court as GRAND
JURORS at this, its March 1907
Term, opening this day, for the
purposo of inquiring into and mak
ing presentment of offenses, and
finding indictments against such
persons ns have in your opinion,
violated the Laws of this Territory,
hy committing crimes within this
Judicial Circuit, and triahle by
In carrying out your duties as
Grand Jurors, you nni3t always
bear in mind that you are to pass
upon matters either brought direct
ly to your attention by this Court,
or hy tho Attornsy General's De
partment, through its representa
tive, tho prosecuting officer at this
Term. In doing so, you liavo
juristiction of all matters that may
bo brought to your knowledge in
violation of the Laws of this Terri
tory. Although you arc an inquisi
torial body, tho law demands that
for a Grand Jury to indict any
person brought beforo it charged
with the commission of any offence,
such charge must be substantiated
Cnnital Stock $ 35,000.00
Surplus and Profits 16,084, 11
Dividends Unpaid 1,400.00
Deposits 171 ,308.35
to your satisfaction by such evi
dence that will be clear to your
minds that such person charged as
aforesaid may bo found guilty be
fore a Trial Juary.
In making investigation of such
matters and charges, fear, favor,
prejudice and partiality should
find no lodgment in your delibera
tions1, tho high and tho low must
be treated with the same considera
tion, nor, on the other hand, should
you present any one through envy,
hatred or malice.
It will bo your duty to examine
each of the witnesses that may be
brought before you to testify con
cerning any matter or charges that
may come beforo your body and if
after an examination of the wit
nesses in a given ease, you have
reasonable cause to believe that
tho crime charged has been com
mitted, and the person so charged
should be put upon his trial, then
you will find "A TRUE BILL."
There must be at least thirteen
of your member present when dis
posing of -a matter brought up for
your deliberation. No indictment
shall be found nor any present
ment made without tho concurrence
of at least twelvo of you.
You are specially instructed that
in no case is a Grand Juror to take
part in tho deliberation of any
matter in which ho is in any wajv
interested in tho outcome of such
In finding an indictment, your
earnest and mature consideration
is required, as tho personal liberty
of individuals, at least, for a while,
depends on the result of your in
vestigation. In no case can you compel the
attendance of any person charged
with the commission of an offence
to appear and bo examined by you,
but such person may, after having
signified his desire, do so, when
you feel that in such cases you
may avoid delay to paities in
terested, and unnecessary expense
to tho Government.
It is also your duty and right to
investigate all matters rolating to
"tho administration of Territorial
and County affairs. No depart
ment of the government is beyond
your reach. Wherever there may
bo suspicion of irregularity, you
have a right to summon beforo you
any and all officials whom you
have reason to bolievo can throw
light upon tho matter, with the
books and papers of their office,
and for this purposo you can divide
your-selvcs into committees, which
would hnvo to report to tho main
body, however, tho cntiro Grand
Jury would have to act upon tho
Tho scope of your investigations
is practically unlimited, in tho
matters Territorial and County.
There is 0110 thing, howover, that
I would strongly impress upon
you, and that is for absolute sec
recy. What takes placo in the
Grand Jury room should bo sacred.
It is 11 very llagrant violation of
tho law for any one todivulgo such i
matters, and such violation this
Court will visit with serious con
sequence'. The reason for this
secrecy is apparent. It is not easy
to influence the action of the Grand
Jury if the people outside are igno
rant of what is going on in the
Grund Jury room, but it is quite
certain that in caso any of your
acts should be made public, dt
tompts would be made to influence
you"., Jn case any person or per
sons should approach any of you
for the purpose of jnfluencingyour
actions, ;such conduct should be
immediately reported to the Ciirl.
Each witness and all interpre
ters should be admonished to keep
inviolate what transpires in his
presence in your counsels.
I trust- that you will, consisten
tly with (he importance of matters
brought before you, carry out your
work expeditiously and as economi
cally as possible.
The Court deems it its duty to
instruct you, that in order to ob
tain good results from investiga
tions of Grand Juries, that you
may acquaint yourselves with the
findings of any Grand Jury your
All tho records of this Court are
open to your inspection.
You hr.vc the process of this
Court in compelling the attendance
of witness living within this Ter
ritory, in all matters brought be
fore you, and this Court will, upon
your request, always be gald to as
sist you in issuing such writs as
may be required in the premises.
The attention of this Court has
been specially called to certain
irregularities touching certain
license fees paid to and accepted
by the Sheriff of this County, in
that said Sheriff did, without first
having obtained from tho Agent of
the Board of Health of this dirtrict
the certificate necessary before a
license can issue for a lodging
or (and) tenement house, hotel,
boarding house or reslurant, as
provided by Section 1382, Revised
Laws of Hawaii.
Owing to certain rumors being
talked of in the streets of Wailuku
relative to rcrtain irregularities in
the expenditure of public monies
on certain roads in the District of
liana, Maui to wit: tho Kaliikinui'
Road, I had tho matter investi
gated, and information was brought
to my knowledge hy parties claim
ing to know the facts, that 10 boxes
of Giant .Powder wero charged
against said road, whereas in fact
only M2 sticks of giant powder, or
less than one box, was actually
used; and that this chargo had
been paid as shown by the voucher
on file in tho ollico of tho County
I therefore charge you to care
fully investigate the above matters
and ombody your findings and re
commendations in your report.
I direct you, that during your do
liberation and voting as to whether
or not an indictment shall or shall
not bo presented and fouud, no pen
son other than the members of your
body should be present.
Tho Court rlono can excuse a
Grand Juror, and although the Grand
Jury may excuse temporarily 0110 or
more of its members, there must bo
at least thirteen of you present at
each hearing or sitting.
This Court will conveuo at 9:30
o'clock A.M. each week day, and
will close at. . . .o'clock P. M., taking
a noon recess of one hour and thirty
minutes? You, however, as Grand
Jurors, will meet and adjourn from
da to day upon your own motion,
but the Court would suggest that, in
your daily sessions, you observo tho
hours of the Court as far as you can
consistently do so In the proper per
formance of your duties.
