THAT Wailuku is away behind the times regarding the transport
ation of injured and sick people to the hospital, there is no
doubt. The primitive method of carrying patients in an ordin
ary automobile or in a hack, still goes on. The County of Maui is rich
enough to purchase and keep up an ambulance such as that owned by
the Paia hospital. In such an ambulance, patients could be carried in
comfort and be treated on the way to the hospital as well. In many
accident cases, where there is internal hemorrhage, the life of the
patient might be saved if he, or she, were conveyed to the hospital
while in a recumbent position. The forced sitting up in an automobile
or rig has, in many cases, lessened the patient's chances of recovery.
The County of Maui can afford such an ambulance just as well as it
can afford expensive machines for the use of the police and supervisors.
WHITE PLAGUE CURE.
R. FRIEDRICH FRANZ FFIEDMANN, who is alleged to have
I a cure for tuberculosis, is causing much discussion among me
dical men all over the world. The Journal of the American
Association, issued on March 8, devotes much space to the discussion.
The Journal says that if Dr. Friedman n only wanted an opportunity
to demonstrate his cure, he need not have crossed the ocean to do so.
It is also stated in the article referred to that some newspapers have
said that Dr. Friedmann has been treated unfairly in New York. This
the Journal denies, and goes on to say that the doctor had two things
to do. He could either submit his treatment to investigation by com
petent and unprejudiced practitioners, or employ it himself-under such
conditions, of course, as will permit his colleagues to form an adequate
opinion of it. The Journal goes on to say that while some newspapers
have hastily assumed that Dr. Friedmann is being unjustly treated,
they have missed an important point. What about justice to the public?
Would it be fair or just to the throngs of tuberculosis sufferers, excited
by hope of a "safe cure," to facilitate their unlimited experimentation
and exploitation by an unknown and, perhaps, dangerous method? Dr.
Friedmann's cure is being investigated by the United States Public
Health Service, and it is the hope of the civilized world that the cure
is the real thing.
The small farmer of these islands is up enough against enough trou
ble of all sorts without having absurd regulations handicapping him in
all possible shape and form. The case of the Haiku fanner who want
ed to ship some limes to Honolulu, and who was prevented from doing
so by the fruit-fly regulations, is a hard one. It seems strange that
Oahu, the hotbed of the fruit-fly, should object to clean fruit being
shipped in. The boot would appear to be on the other foot, and it
should be Maui's kick against importation from Oahu, and not the
other way about.
That there should be some kind of direct steamer service between
Maui and Hawaii, is generally conceded. There was, in the past, a
chance of shipping freight from Kahului to Hilo, direct, on the Clau
dine but, since the change in the schedule, there is no way of shipping
except from Lahaina. If the trade warrants the innovation, arrange
ments should be made to place a steamer on the run between Kahului
The decision of the Secretary of the Treasury that cuts down the
status of the port of Kahului, is a rank injustice to the second largest
port in the territory, and efforts should be made at once to have the
secretary change back to the old order of things.
The death of King George of Greece at the hands of a fanatic is a
tragedy that must be regretted by he whole civilized world. The late
King was a fine man and was admired by everyone but the "Unspeak
The Hilo scandal seems to be growing larger every day. The 71,
000 mentioned at first, now seems to have been merely an annual
affair. Some people claim that that amount was stolen each year.

made a few remarks. He said, in
"Gentlemen of the Grand Jury.
This may be the last time that I
will address a grand jury in this
court. Changes of administration
have taken place and, of course,
the party in power want to have
their own men in the positions
available. I have no objection to
that, and I feel thankful that Pre
sident Wilson is a man with a real
party, and not one without a pro
"I have always acted fearlessly
while on the bench and, although
I have made mistakes, I have never
done so through fear or to stand
in well with anybody.
"The time is coming when the
courts of the United States will fall
into line with other places regard
iug the expediting of court work
and the avoiding of the senseless
delays that are, in many courts, to
be observed. Attorneys are in
some instances, too prone to try
and throw dust in the eyes of the
court. Do they think that judges
are fools and that common sense is
not found on the bench?
"In California the courts are
getting through their work quicker
than they did formerly. The
Judges do not allow the attorneys
to ask foolish questions and to ob
ject to almost every question asked
The Judge remarked to the
Grand Jury that he thought that
body to be the youngest lot o
Jurors he had ever addressed. He
complimented the Jurors on the
good work and hoped that someday
even if not on the bench, he would
have the pleasure of meeting them
Foreman Mountcastle then spoke
up for the Jury. He said that it
was news to him to hear that Judge
Kingsbury's days on the bench
were numbered. He thanked the
judge for courtesies extended and,
on behalf of the Jury, wished the
Judge a long and happy life. The
Jurors, before leaving the court
room, advanced and shook the
hand of the Judge. Judge Kings
bury's address to the Grand Jury
was as follows:
(Hillcineii of the Grand Jury:

Tribunal by virtue of operation of

As a Tribunal you have certain offi

on you by virtue of your oflice.
Your functions are not voluntary
but 'ire legally and morally obliga

them you have taken a solemn bind

Your oath of oflice is just as
solemn and binding as is my oath
as Judge of this Court.
We tan not vary, change, limit
or lay aside the obligations im
posed upon us by our respective
oaths of oflice.
My duty as Judge is quite well
understood and your duties as a
Grand Jury are perhaps as well
However, in performing my duty
as Judge, the law compels me to
charge you as to your duties.
Hence, I remind you that if, in
this County, crimes have been com
mitted or offenses against law have
been committed, it becomes your
duty to initiate proceedings for the
punishment of those guilty of
crimes and offenses.
Neither you nor I have anything
to do regarding the law itself. That
is for the Legislature. We simply

This may be done by light pun
