MCCROSSON TO LANAI.
John T. McCrosson, Colonel Sat
Parker and Judge Lindsay will
leave on Tuesday for the island of
Lanai where they will spend several
days, investigating the work on the

The news will be published here
this afternoon of the resignation of
Kristain J. Cjerdrum from the
office of manager of Honokaa plan
tation. Mr. Gjerdrm cabled Ids
resignation to Schaefer & Company,
stating that he had been offered a
position as manager of a plantation
in Porto Rico. It is perhaps need
less to say ' that the directors
promptly accepted the resignation.
Mr. Gjerdrum has been severely
eritized for submitting an estimate
of Honokaa's crop for this year as
mora than 11,000 tons, whereas the
yield was in reality only about 7,
600 tens. He has never been for
given for this most extraordinary
blunder. Yesterday Schaefer &
Company cabled to Alexander Mor
rison, who was formerly head luna
of McBryde Sugar Company, offer
ing him the post of manager at
Honokaa. Mr. Morrison is now
manager of a plantation in Porto
Rico, but it is ' Iwlieved that he is
anxious to return to these islands.

to Ran Ovgr Japanese Boy.
Thoughgoing nt a very slow pace,
Jonquil! do Kego, while at Luhairui
last week, ran over and killed a

Report of the Grand Jury.
The Grand Jury made its report
to the Court this week. Indict
ments have been returned in 16
cases. In only one case which
was brought before it, did they fail
to find a true bill.
The Jury severely criticize the
great laxity in the sheriff's office,
and also that of the deputy tax
collector of Wailuku, in their me
thod of handling the' funds en
trusted to them. There' seems to
be a great laxity in the deputy col
lector's office in allowing execu
tions to go unsatisfied, and they
suggest that the attention of the
proper authorities be called there
to. It is the belief of the Grand
Jury that these lax methods in
the tax collector's office was, in a
great measure, the cause of the
downfall of the last sheriff, he
having been subjected to unneces
