The new court bouse being erect
ed in Wailuku will be one of the
finest in appearance on the island
Tho lower story will bo of solid
concrete whi'e the upper story will
be made of hollow concrete blocks.
The blocks for the building are
being made now at the rate ofjvbout
sixty per day.
The method of making the blocks
is a very simple process. A great
many concrete casts are made from
the face of stones of artistic beauty
that have been cut to the proper
size and selected for the purpose.
These casts are then sot in a wooden
frame made of the required size
and into this is places a thin sheet
of metal near tho cast to prevent
tho mixing of the concrete proper
and the colored concrete that is
used for unking the, face of tho
The body of the block is made of
concrete and fine rock in tho pro
portion of one to four while the
face ii made of concrete and sand
into which .has been mixed tho re
quired amount of blueing to make
the block as near as possible an
imitation of Hawaiian rubble stone.
The proportion of concrete and
sand in this face is one of concrete
to two of sand.
Into the form is placed two or
thrco large wooden blocks and then
the concrete is placed into the form
and tho colored concrete botween
tho metal and the cast and are
tamped down solidly while tho
metal is being raised and tho two
arc firmly united by tamping. This
process is repeated several times
until the form is filled and then
the blocks aro allowed to stand for
a time and the wooden blocks aro
removed and tho hollow concrete
blocks aro left on boards to season
and aro wetted each day several
times in order to hasten tho sea
Tho only advantage of making
tho concrete blocks hollow instead
of having them colid is tho saving
Tho largo blocks aro probably of
six bundled pounds weight and all
will bo laid in concrete and will
then from a solid concrete mass.
JamOs Lloyd who was tho inspect
or on tho Kalihi school building is

It is evident that tho .method of
making eoncieto blocks will make
the building finer in appearnce
than tho method bv machinery
as in this ease there aie so
many different casts that no two
blocks of the same face will be laid
together while the method of mak
ing tho blocks by tho machine met
hod does not turn out faces of the
variety t.hnt is possible with
mctlfod employed here.
Ctiilil Hurried to Dcntli.
On Thursday oT laut wee); at one of
iho tield camps of the Haiku Fri.it
and Racking Company a fouriren
months old Korean child was severely
burned by upsetting a sauee pa of
boiling hot gruel which its mother
had justi brought in from the (ire and
placed on a low table
Tho gruel was pulled over and fell
on the face of the child and ran down
one sale. and badly burned tho face,
side and one ley: causing three bad
bi i ns.
The parents, wishing to save the
expense of a night, call from the
doctor, contested themselves with
applying laid to the burns and apply
ing sundry Korean remedies, both
medicinal and corporal.
The childs face wns roughly slapped
and its leet and hands were pricked
with a needle find I lit whole little
body was rudely shaken and dialed
when its life sormod to be in danger.
The doctor was called in the next
morning and applied soothing salves
to the bur.'.s tmtjbe parents imagin
ing the child was growing w ovsiin a
frenzy, tore the doetois remedies
from the child and refused to accept
ids services until persuaded in do mi
by the tnnnngei.. Tl is they did how
ever grudgingly !rnd it is proinlile
that as soon an he was gone and i-o
one was present to see them they
again applied their remdies and
corporal' treatment in their piad
dlorts to save Hie child of whom they
seemed to be very fond.
Their efforts were ui availing and
the child died Saturday morning.
No moi e bt ut a) treat mr nt has ever
come, to out knowledge, than this and
yet ignorance was unquestionably
responsible for the aoH- of these lann
ticsas they gave every evidence of
having gi eat fondness for their child.
Mormon Colony Did Noi Approve.
Honolulu Nov. 11. The questirn
of "privileged communications" rais
ed by the defense in the case of George
'Kek luoha, or the Mormon case, as
it has come to be called, was decided
by Judge Dole this morning in an
opinion submitted at the opening of
court. It holds that in the presenl
instance matters that took place in
the Koohmlon church in tho presence
of u considi rable number of persons,
some of whom it had not been shown
were priests of any authority, could
not bo wltheld from the court as
Tho matte- came up last Friday
during the trial' of Kek-juuha for
adultery with a woman named Amin.
A number of witnesses had given
somo damaging eiroumstanch,! evi
donee against the two. when it .was
sought to be brought out by J. J.
Dunne, Assistant DMriei Attorney,
what had taken place in tin church
meeting at which it was alleged that
both George and Amia had been
arraigned and had confessed- to the
crime with which the law is now
charging them, and had been exon
erated hy the Elders. Attorney A.
Perry objected to such a lino of
questioning on tho grounds that all
of the persons present were members
of the clergv according to the Mr
mon Church rules, and as such were
exempt from divulging any secrets
given In the nature of confessional.
Tho witness on the stand was one
Joseph Kekuku, who stated that he
held the position ofkumu,or teacher,
in the oh.reli. At tho meeting in
question there were present four
lutias or elders, and eight or nine
kumus. Almost all of Friday after
noon was taken up with arguments
as to tli standing of these different
church officials, and whether or not
they were privileged to hear matters
that they could not be compelled to,
reveal on tho witness stand. Judge
Dole took the matter under advise
ment. and this morning handed in a
written opinion which is important
in that it will probably be a prece
dent in future cases of thusame kind-
After stating that tho evidence re
garding the duties of the kumus in
tho church is very vague, and that
there was no evidence introduced, to
show that they had a controlling vqto
or wore necessarily present, in tlc
confccslonal, Judge Dole says;
"No private or social or religious
obligations can dispense) wfthin that
univesal one which lies on every mem'
ber of society to divulge nil informa
tion in regard to crimes against the
public Interests, in tho recogni'ion of
certain communications which ate
privileged, because of the sentiment
that to compel testimony under tho
circumstances would be of morn pre
judice than value to the public These
privileged communications include
t'.ioso rnnda between attorney and.
client, husband and wife, physician
and patient, clergyman and penitent,
and some other'.
"Although a confession of a pen!
tent' to his clergyman is made privi
leged by tho statute which privilege
may be regaided as desirable in tho
public h.terest. yet tho extension of
such privilege to those present at a
meeting for disciplinary purpose
made up of a miscellaneous assembly
of highor and lower officials of a
church, may well bo viewed with
alai'm as tending to transform a con
servative and reasonable practice to
one containing elements of interfer
ence with the tdministratiou of the
laws in the value of unnecessary,
obstacles thero to."
The Court also cities a number of
authorities, among thorn being a dcci
sion with regard to privileged com
munications, in the matter of Iho
secret work of n society or organiza
tion, in which it had been held that
no such obligation could be binding
before a court, of law, and was pro
bably not intended t lint it should be
The defense excepted to the opin
ion, and the case has been going on,
the witness, telling j,, detail of tho
confession made and of forgiveness
being extended by the elders to both
Kekauoha nnd Amia, conditional that
they should m repeat the offense.
