TIIK law that allows a judge to sentence a man to not less than a
certain period, and not more than another period, was conceived
in all good faith by the legislator who is responsible for the
act, and there is no doubt that the other legislators who passed the bill
thought it a good merciful one. But, did they ever stop to consider
that they put the power to keep a convict a lohger or shorter time in
prison, into the hands of the warders, turnkeys or other subordinate
members of the prison staff? It was never intended that it be so, but
there is no doubt that such is the case, when all is said and done.
A man is sentenced to "not less than three nor more than ten
years' jail." The theory is that, if the convict behaves himself and
shows contrition, he may be allowed his liberty at the end of the shorter
period. He may, even, get an allowance of several mouths for good
conduct. Should the man become a bad prisoner he may have to
serve the longer term mentioned in the sentence. That proposition
seems alright and if it were possible to be absolutely sure that prisoners
never were discredited by warders, guards or turnkeys, the system
would be a merciful one.
However, when a prisoner has to depend upon the reports of the
officials mentioned to the Head Jailor, there is always a chance of per
sonal spite being exercised. What is easier than for a guard who, for
some reason, dislikes a prisoner, to report the convict as being anything
but a model prisoner? The report goes on record and the convict losses
credit marks. This happens several times and, at last, the word goes
out that "No. 000'' is a bad man and should be kept in prison for an
extra term. This cheering news reaches the prisoner and he, knowing
where the report of his wickedness originated, cannot say a word in his
own defense. If he does do anything so foolish, he is proved to be a
liar and the prison commissioners who want to get away to the golf
links or tenuis courts, shake hands with the Jailor and remark that
flogging is good enough for "No. 000." There is room for great abuse
in the present system and, while not making charges against any of
our prisons, the statement is made in good faith, that such things as
related above have happened in other countries and there is no reason
why they cannot happen in Hawaii. Indeterminate sentences leave
open the chance of personal spite, or of holding up unfortunate rela
tives for graft money. If a crime is worth five years, give that sen
tence. If two years is sufficient, make it that. Don't leave the pris
oner's fate to prison guards, turnkeys, warders, jailors or prison commissioners.
IF every former democrat in the Hawaiian Islands has not turned
republican during the last couple of weeks, it must surprise people
who study things. The free sugar scare is bringing to the personal
knowledge of the democrats the horrible consequence of any such mea
sure. The inevitable cutting down (if not the absolute abolition of
jobs) of wages and the thought that the palmy days of easy work, good
pay and a delightful climate are nearly pau, must make the democrats
wish that they were of a different political faith. It is all very fine to
yell for the democratic party and to laud the leaders of that bunch.
Free trade sounds well. "Cheaper goods" sounds fine. "Everything
will be cheaper" is delightful. But of what use aie cheaper goods,
foods or anything else, when the wage is not coming in, and there is
no prospect of earning any kind of a decent salary? There will not be
a democrat in these islands in four years time that is if sugar is knock
ed out, which God forbid.
V V it be true that some persons have declared that Hawaii should
I petition to Washington to be made a Republic again if the free sugar
bill bo passed, the limit is about reached. "Mighty Dollar Amer
cans would be the right name to call them, and no decent minded
person would ever have anything more to do with them. Such people
should be boycotted and driven from the islands. r
The news hi yesterday's wireless came as a shock to all decent peo
pie, and the thing could not at first be credited. Still, as the Honolulu
papers have taken up the matter, there must be something in the
The thought is impossible, except to some maniacs who evidently
think that threats of the kind can possibly do any good regarding
the sugar situation.
The bill said to be fathered by Representative Goodness of Maui, and
which calls for the appointment of an additional government physician
in Wailuku should be killed at once. There is no necessity for such a
position being created.

Another shot about the situation
at Pukoo. The Maci Nkws does
not take sides in this matter and
simply prints the communications
as they came in.
From your paper of March 29 we
note that Ukl inner, living in
Molokai, seems to think that he
elected the sheriff, but he has an
other guess coining; we all had
say in the matter, at least, all those
that attended the convention at the
time mentioned. The trouble o
the whole matter is this; my friends
on Molokai, like a great many other
"sore heads," did not get what he
was looking for after the election.
He wanted the whole hog or
nothing." In other words, he was
supposed to be the whole cheese
after electing Clem.Crowell as sheriff
and, for this little job he was to
dole out the loaf to the deserving
parties. Ihe bone of contention
seems to be over the present Deputy
Sheriff on Molokai Mr- Joel Naka
leka. He was a first-class man as a
Representative from Molokai and
very popular, but he has not made
much of a showing as a Deputy
Sheriff, simply because he has only
half of the backing of Molokai and
perhaps not even half when it comes
to a show down. What can you
