INCLUDING BASEBOARD AND METAL COVER
Coercion. Much has been paid of late in the leading Iloniilulu dailies
of matters of justice on the Island of Maui. The courts have been scored,
the prosecution has come in for sensure, the police department has Uen
roasted, both the trial and grand jury have come in for their share, and
to even up matters, one of the jury commissioners has leen criticised for
reporting a serious matter to an officer of the court, instead of the court
itself, and to make matters complete, Honolulu citizens h'' icseriled
conditions on Maui as leing alsolutely rotten.
From all these strangers might easily get the imr- jssion that Maui is a
To those who are acquainted with the officers responsible for the con
ditions which are descriled as tyrannical and oppressive, such a conclu
sion is impossible. The deputy sheriff and the jailor of Wailuku are two
kind hearted, conscicnt'ous men. Some of the .ither officers who
are charged with oppression wouldn't harm huW' .lies in a meadow and
their records are such that the charges must ii i to lead any intelligent
person who knows them to lieheve the hideous stories of brutality made
We deny that the acts of of the officials on Maui justify the sensational
We know that many of the jurors in the past didn't come up to the stan
dard, and that to get a full jury list at the present time among the limi
ted number of residents on this island who speak and read English
'intelligently and understandingly, and who are not exempt from jury
duty impossible, hut that in the main, the jury selected for the present
year will surpass in standing any jury ever drawn in the territory
. We take issue with Judge Kingsbury in some matters just as we may
with any other official, but we realize that he is honest and conscientious
and that to improve conditions here he must necessarily make enemies
While he may justly be criticised for taking the cases out of the hands
of the attorneys, we think that this cannot compared to the indefensible
practice of giving to attorneys for the defense the right to have a juror ex
cused, who will not give the same credence to the testimony of a Japanese
or a Porto Rican as he would to a white man.
The charge that a Chinaman was confined in a dark cell, where the
air was foul will not appeal Very strongly to any one who is familiar with
the awful stench and vile odors to Ihj found in many of the homes and
dens of dozens of Chinese in this town.
Conditions on Maui in the past have been vile in certain places. 1 Hey
are yet, but those conditions are not a result of omission or commission
on the part of the authorities, and it is up to this community to stand
by and assist anyone who is striving to better those conditions even
though we cannot in every particular agree with the one who is leading
i in this wocLr
Challenge It is seldom that a subscription list appeals to the average
Trophy. citizen and more frequently than otherwise the same is
source of annoyance.
Not many of those who sulscrilie feel much interest in the cause for
which the funds are solicited, and it is refreshing to see a list in which al
may contribute without the feeling that the public is being bled without
a proper return,
', - A numborof Maui's most patriotic citizens are interested in circulating
a subscription list for the purpose of raising funds for the purchase of a
challange trophy, to le called Maui cup, to be competed for annually by
the sailing vessels of the Hawaii Yacht Club.
The committee having the matter of subscriptions and course of race
in hand are not soliciting over a dollar from any one individual, and as
it is desired to make the event an annual one, and make the Fourth of
July, the Maui day, it is up to all good citizens to contribute which they
are doing most heartily.
An Exodus. ;.To of Wniluku's leading citizens have handed into this
office a slip of paper containing the names of nearly twenty families who
left Wailuku during the past fifteen months, who have not leen replaced
by a single family. They have estimated the probable amount of
money ex pended in the town to le over two thousand dollars per month
After a careful perusal of the names and amounts, we are of the opin
ion that the amount is underestimated.
Treating this loss strictly from a financial standpoint, it is evident
that this is a serious loss to any small community.
Every tradesman and almost every industry here will suffer as a result
of tlws loss. It seems strange that the leaders in the affairs of the com
munity do not realize what the exodus means, and take steps to encou
rage those who are here to remain and assist others to come. The town
cannot lie benefitted by filling with it Orientals.
