Gentlemen of the Grand Jury:
You have been duly drawn, sum

Grand Jurymen at this June Term
of the Circuit Court of the Second
Judicial Circuit, Territory of Ha
waii. It is my duty as Judge of this
Court to give you certain directions,
to appoint ono of your number to
act as your Foreman, to await the
results of your deliberations, and,
lastly to receive your reports and
(discharge after your final report is
Many of you have been in the
Grand Jury service More and are
fully advised as to the nature of
your duties and this renders this
' charging duty of the Court much
easier and leads the Court to feel
that your knowledge and experience
will supply any matters overlooked
' by the Court in this charge.
Our government is not only one
of the people, and, one for the joo
pleY but it is also a government by
You gentlemen are nlxut to enter
upon the functions 'of this last phase
of our form of government "by the
people" and are to exemplify self
government, and, to show that
the people of this jurisdiction do in
fact govern themselves.
;,To you-arc entrusted the power
and duty of showing that we are
able to govern ourselves, and, to en
force the laws, and, to punish those
who break the criminal law.
If we are not able to do this, then
we are unworthy of living in a
country -whose government, and,
benevolent laws are such, that the
.people are left, under the law, in
,r possession of tho power to punish
for" all wrong doings against law
.and the public good.
In the discharge of your duties as
OxGrand Jury, you will have the aid
and direction of our County Attor
ney who is ex officio tho Prosecut
ing Attorney of this Circuit, and
who has charge of all criminal pro
ceedings in this Circuit.
It is his power and duty to bring
to yur attention all violations of
the criminal law and to aid and ad
vise you regarding your methods of
procedure and to interpret to you
tho laws applicable to each case and
generally to aid and assist you in
the examination of witnesses and of
all other matters of law and practice

This you will at once see, is an
other step forward and towards full,
perfect, local self-government: Tt
is a step towards local power and
local responsibility. It in effect
says to us in this jurisdiction that
we can be trusted to enforce the
laws here by punishing those who
have violated the criminal law and
that- we now need no aid of officers
who reside outside of our jurisidic
tion. TJie Judge of this Court is requir
ed to reside in this Circuit and to be
ono of you, so are all of you jury
men required not only to bo re
sidents and citizens of Hawaii, but
to l)e domiciled in this Circuit ; to
have a home here, and now for the
first titne, your prosecuting officer
is of you a resident of this Territory
and a resident of this Circuit. You
thus see that in this respect-in fact
in all respects jiertaining to the en
forcement of tho criminal law, we
now enjoy perfect, local, self govern
ment. It is now for the first time and in
the first instance left to you as this
Jury to show we are either worthy
or are unworthy of the confidence
reposed in us as a people and to de
monstrate whether we are capable
of governing ourselves. Unless you
recognize it your duty and disehargo
that duty it is little that the Court,
or prosecutor) or u petti jury, or the
sheriff or any tribunal or person can
do to punish or to prevent crime.
With this corresixmding sense of

Invention Nay Revolutionize
Honolulu, June 23. Honolulu
has produced an inventor who has
been issued a patent for a machine
entitled a "power generator," but
which in reality is almost a iwriio
tual motion machine. Christian
Cart Tueh, a kamaaiua -of twenty
eight years! residence in the Hawai
ian Islands, has just been ' notified
by E. 15. Moore, Commissioner of
Patents, Washington, D. C, under
date of April 1!), liHW, that the pa
tent, had boon allowed. N?r. Tuoh's'
attorney in Washington will now
seek foreign patents, and then the
secret of the mechanism will be
given to tho world.,
Mr. Tuch has worked for many
years on his scheme and' finally rea
lized his hopes. Tho machine he
says will revolutionize the present
methods for the generation of pow
er, as no coal or oil will ho used for
fuel. A storage battery, or electric
current is only necessary to start
the machine. Thereafter the ma
chine generates its own power and
generates unlimited power for com
mercial use. In that sense that it
supplies its own power and gene
rates additional power the discovery
borders on perpetual motion.
Mr. Tuch has been employed for
many years on various plantations
as a sugar boiler and a geitoral
plantation man, his last work as a
sugar boiler being performed at

Washington, June 11. At a
meeting held today tho Immigration
Commission instructed Senator Dil
lingham, its chairman, and William
It. Wheeler to visit Hawaii next
September and make an investiga
tion of lal)or conditions there, not
only with relation to the Japanese
immigrants, but to study the im
migration question in general. Many
communications have Im-oh received
on this subject, and the sugar in
terests especially have asked the
Commission to look into the ques
tion of getting immigrants who will
bo adaptable to island conditions
which the Territory has attempted
to do with indifferent success.
The work of gathering statistics
regarding the Japanese on the Paci
fic Coast is progressing under the
direction of Professor Miles in such
a satisfactory manner1 that the work
will be completed by September 1 ,
and the Commission will then be
able to present valuable statistics on
the subject. The other field work
of the Commission will be closed
July 1, and field workers will be set
to work tabulating the work already
done. The Commission will close
its existence March 1 .

Their Letter Acknowledging
Courtesies is Unique.
1 be following letter from the
yachtsmen who wore recently here
has been received and fully ex
presses tho cordial relations exist-
between the yachtsmen of Oahu
and the people of Maui.
Honolulu, T. II., June 17, 1900.
Dear Mr. Williams and Everybody
If you could just look down into
tho hearts of us who are signing
this letter, you would have some
idea of the feelings that we want
to express but cannot.
From the time that our feet first
touched the hospitable shores of
Maui to the time that we waved a
regretful farewell, each and every,
one of the yachtsmen had one great,
grand time and all we can do to
show our appreciation is to say
that you and thoond Maui people
have done more in two day? to en
dear you to the Island of Oahu and
to'hclp along the grand sport of
yachting than all the work of all
tho regatta committees, that ever
Just how much you'have done
tor yachting you do not realize.
This race with its delightful) in
terim on Maui brought nut many
young fellows, tho kind we want to
take'an interest in the sport. They
found tint t it is great to get away
on the breast of our groongirdlod
Mother, that a sailor has all the
dirt blown out of his brain and
heart and that a good yachtsman
is a good-man and a gentleman.
They found that when yachts
men, and by yachtsmen we mean
every body who loves the sea and
the call of her, get together, all the
potty human frailties and faults
are doused overboard. Only the
best that is in a man comes un. A
wholesome repeot for the skipper;
a joy in the very tingle of the
muscles when you pull on a rope,
a now zest in life and a lealization
of what good-fellowship really
moans that all the secret societies
in the world cannot produce.
It is due to you that we had the
chance to show this, h is due to
you that we had such a good time,
it is due to you that there aie so'me
fifty brown faces on this Island
each and everyone spreading the
grand Gospel of the open air to
dozens of poor souls who have
never really known what a pro
perly good time is.
We might purchase a shield of
gold and put all your names on it
and set it up on a monument, but
it would be no more lasting than
the inscription written deeply in
the hearts of every one of us
There were so many of you who
came round to give us welcome and
to look after us while we were on
Maui, that we cannot begin to
mention names. Hut we do want
to lot the people of Kahului and
Maui know that the Island of Oahu
iH yours any time you want to eomo
over and take it. The next big
favor that you can do us is to come
over and gie us a chance to show
you an imitation of the hospitality
that you extended to us.
In singing this we merely repre
sent the sentiments of every yachts
man on the Island of Oahu,
Aloha to you all.
