The Senate for Reciprocity.
A recent poll of the United States Senate shows a straight majori
ty for Canadian Reciprocity. It is known, however, that some
Senators would be only too glad to find some loophole to escape
from voting for the agreement. They are compelled to favor it as it
stands; by the public sentiment of their constituents, but by the in
troduction of the amendments they may yet find a way to double cross
the President, and fool their constituents. The poll gives these results

Wallace Irwin in Life.
A man there was and he had a dog,
And the man was a good-for-naught,
Till he mended his life and married a wife
And settled down-he thought.
Full well he acted a husband's part
As his wife to his breast he drew; '
For he didn't know that she hadn't a heart.
But the dog he knew!
Now the man he went from his home at morn
And he kissed his wife farewell,
Though her lips were chill as the winter rill '
But how could the husband tell?
And he smiled as he loked at the morning sun
, While the breath of the spring he drew.
For he didn't know that she hadn't a heart, "
But the dog he knew!
So the man came back to his home again,
His home that was black and cold,
The hearth was dead and his Love had fled,
And the man was suddenly old.
But the dog crept close to his master's knee
And the breath of affection blew.
"God," said the man, "has forgotten me,"
But the dog-he knew!
So into the world the man walked forth
And the dog at his heel did go.
They hungered or fed on bitter bread,
And no man shared their woe,
Till they found him at last by the river's side
- Drenched with the morning dew.
Nobody knew how the man had died,
But the dog he knew!

raiaea ior innocense and so many
obstructions in legal proceedings
exist to the prosecution of the guilty,
that almost no one knows of an in"
stance where an innocent man has
been convicted, while everyone
knows of many guilty men who es
cape punishment. It is said that
only about four per cent of the
murderers are punished; the ninety
six per cent go unpunished. This
is said to be the case in the United
States. I do not think the condi
tions are so bad and thati so large a
per cent escape punishment in Ha
waii, and especially in the County
We do have a better class of jury
men Here man can be obtained in
most other places.
Our trial jurors are not only
honest but they are obliged to have
such educational qualifications as
render them not too easily influenc
ed, fooled or blinded by the false
ights of a certain class of attorneys,
nor are they so influenced and stir
red up by pleas for sympathy as to
be moved by sickly sentimentality
to shut their eyes to the stubborn
facts of the case, and to close their
ears to the voice of justice and law.
There is no occasion . to talk of
mercy until tlicir is either a con
iession oy a piea oi guilty, or, a
conviction by the jury. Under a
plea of not guilty, there can be no
plea for mercy.
Under a plea of guilty, or, after
conviction, the law makes it the
duty of certain offcers to exercise
mercy. But juries have only to
think of justice to the defendant,
which is mercy to the public.
So far as the Court is informed,
there is but a little business to come
before the Grand Jury at this Term.
No doubt your work will be light
and your session short. This has
been made possible by the thorough
manner in wind) previous juries
grand and trial, have done their
duties. Such juries as we have had
lessen crime, and the need of work
in criminal cases for juries in the
Nearly all the expenses of our
Courts are caused by criminals who
do not pay any taxes; they bear no
public burdens, and yet cause near
ly all the public expense.
If you must think of mercy,
think of a suffering public and be
merciful to the people of Maui
while you arc just to the accused.
But as I said before, you are not-l
concerned at all with the subject of
mercy or to be moved by any senti
ment or consideration in favor of
the accused or of the people at
large. You are only concerned with
Chargo no man unjustly. The
rights of other men are to be con
sidered and held sacred, the rights of
one citizen or of ajiy person is a right
of all and the' good of all requires
that every man's rights be considered
and held sacred. While the Coun
ty Attorney is the person who has
the power and duty in criminal pro
ceedings in this County and will no
doubt bring before you all cases he
knows about and thinks should be
investigated, still you are not limit
ed to such cases only, but can in
quire into every other case
where you think investigation
should be made. And you should
revealed to each other, coses of
crime known by you.
The Court appoints Mr. David L.
Meyer Esq., as your foreman.
On retiring to your Grand Jury
room, you will elect one of your
nunilier to act as secretary and
keep the minutes of your proceed
ings. He should be a ready writer
and be able to keep full and ac
curate minutes so as to, in a pro
per case, show the record to the
proper oflicer. Be as expeditious
as possible with due regard to justice
and the public interest. Report
your proceedings to the Court by
final report and such other reports
as you deem best; but as the Court

The services for the reded ication
of the Kaahumanu Church, Wailu
ku, were held last Sunday morning
under most favorable auspices. The
weather was perfect, and early in
the morning the guests began to
arrive from different parts of Maui.
The Wailuku Sugar Co, very gene
rously ran a special train which
brought a large number of people
from Waihee for the services. Many
came also by train from Paia and
Puunene. A large representation of
Wailuku people also helped to fill
The decoration consisted of cut
flowers and palms and were beauti
fully arranged by Mrs. Polly Kalua
and other members of the Kaahu
manu Church. The music rendered
by a large chorus was of the best.
The handsome Koa pulpit chairs
had arrived in time to be used,N but
the new chandeliers for the acety
lene gas came a few day too late
Rev. I. D. Iaca of Molokai preach
ed the sermon. Rev. J. K. Kahoo
pii of Paia, George M. Ksuaulaler.a
of Makena, R. B. Dodge and the
Pastor of the Church, Rev. L. B.
Kaumeheiwa took other parts. Mr.
Cbas. A. Wilcox read an interest
ing historical sketch of the Church.
In the afternoon the Christian
Endeavor Society had, a rally. In
all over three hundred people at
tended the services, and. the large
collections realized from the Con
certs and morning offering helped
to meet the small outstanding debt
on the church repairs. Over 82,500
have been spent. All who visited
the Church on Sunday pronounce
it one of the most attractive church
interiors on Maui-

The new Junijingi Japanese tem
ple, near Masuda's residence, was
dedicated last Sunday. Previous to
the ceremonies there was a proces
sion of Japanese children and adults
in costume. Small ballons were
sent up at intervals, and oriental
music enlivened the proceedings,
all of which were in memory of the
first Japanese emperor and his
family. There was also a pleasant
entertainment on Saturday even
ing. Junijingi includes 12 acts,
for the purpose of casting out evil
spirits It is expected that there
will soon be another exhibition of
the cleansing rites.

the Puunene club house a series, of
beautiful colored films, comrjrisine
life in India and Fiji,- Indian illu
sions, comic scenes, etc. These
films were shown in. Honolulu at
Punahou college and were repeated
by request at the Park theatre to
large audiences. Enderdate Maha

Turner was hitting well and made
a very pretty goal, hitting the ball
under his pony, at a critical stage
of the game Arthur Collins play,
ed No. 1 against David Fleming
No. 4 sticking close to his man and
doing some' excellent hitting and
riding off. In spite of this inter
ference Fleming did some fine back'
hand work, and is, if possible play
ing a better game this year than
ever. Harold Rice as usual dis
played his splendid .horsemanship
and played with exceptional . vim
and dash, placing several goals to
his credit. Jimnrie Meyers, Maui's
foremost athlete, is making a good
showing for a beginner, but realized
that it is one thing hitting a polo
ball from the back of a fast gallop
ing pony and another smashing a
tennis ball at his opponent's feet
George Steele, another new play
er distinguished himself by digging
an old ball out of a scrimmage at the
lower end of the field and nobly
carrying it almost to his opponent's
goal, only to discover that he was
playing a "lone hand"' and the rest
of his side were busy with the origin
nai ball in play. It is unnecessary
to mention that George got "all
his" from the sidelines. Notwith
standing this little joke at Steele's
expense he is one of the most prom
ising 6f this year's beginners, and
will be heard from later as a polo
Eddy Peck, nursing a score hand,
had to be content to view the game
from the sidelines in company with
the polo fan, Sam Weller, who was
supposed to be time keeper for the
game, but whose attention was most
of the time otherwise engaged.
The ring of the bell for the last
period brought to a close a very en
joyable afternoon's sports, and the
Maui scribe wended his way home
to dream of "riding off," "Hook
ing sticks," etc and awaken to the
fact that it would take a larger book
to contain what he did not know
about polo than he would care to
Thursday morning, at tlie open
ing of the court, the members of
the bar presented a resolution on
the death of the late Judge Kepoi
kai. Judge Kalua spoke in Hawaii
an at some length and was followed
by Mr. Vivas and Mr. Case, and
they all paid a high tribute to the
deceased. Judge Kingsbury then
reviewed at some length his pleasant
relations with the late judge, and
spoke feelingly of the hhjh esteem
in which he was held. Following
are the resolutions:
The Honorable Auwae Noa Ke
poikai, former Judge of the Circuit
Court, Second Judicial Circuit, a
prominent member of this bar, and

Resolved: . That the members of
the bar of this Court do hereby ex
press their deep regret at the
passing of their deceased brother
and fellow citizen, and here and
now pay tribute to his recognized

ity, and to his faithfulness in friend

tender to his widow and near re
lations our heartfelt sympathy in
this their hour of trial ; and
Further Resolved: That these
resolutions be entered upon and be
