JUDGE KINGSBURY'S FINE
CHARGE TO GRAND JURY
Gentlemen of tlie Grand Jury:
You Lave just taken your oath of

will, us soon as you get this charge,

However, if you deem it your
duty, you can examine into any
cases of suspected crime of your
own motion. Ui.it you will most
likely not be called upon to bring
up cases to which the County At
torney docs not call your attention,
as the duties of his oflice demand

In the performance of your duties,
keep in mind the place you occupy
as the tribune of the people.
Indict no one on account of
malice and do not fail to indict on
account of fear or favor. Truth
and a love of Justice should guide
If facts show a crime has been
committed and that certain person
or persons are guilty of it, then
This is your sworn duty, and
both Justice and leiievolenee re
quire this of you.
To neglect to indict for crime is
cruelty to the people, to the crimi
nal and to your own selves The
people are forced to depend upon
you and if you fail them, you do
cruel injury to the County of Maui.
If you allow crime to go without
any attempt to punish, it is cruel to
rtie guilty and encourages them in
more crime to their final destruc
tion; and to be so recreant to your
duty is to most cruelly inllict in
your own souls a sense of blame
worthiness. The form and constitution of our
government is benevolent and it is
so not merely in theory but in fact;
and no phase of it is more plainly
so than in its provisions for pre
venting injury to all by punishing
the few w ho are guilty.
Your duties as Grand Jurymen
are, no doubt, pretty well under

many who have been on jury-panels

If I were to give you one word
which should best express your at

would be the word "patriotism."

Patriotism makes you to desire

favor decide as the facts convince
You should have malice toward
no man, but you should hate crime.
You cannot too much detest acts
which violate the law and so injure
the people. You will not bear ill
will towards any man or even any
thing capable of pain and pleasure

The man who does not hate crime

Separate the man who is a cri

There is no sufficient excuse for a
crime. A man's mind who looks
for excuse for crime becomes pollut

ing this is a pollutor of public
morals. His duty to a client who
is guilty of crime is fully performed
by seeing that he is fairly and legal
ly convicted. As a decent lawyer
and good citizen, he should go no

their legal rights is to have the pun

poses for the crime.
All men whether laymen or law
yers should uphold the laws
should desire Justice should so act
as to discourage wrong doing.
There is no half-way-station a
man is either a patriot or he is not;
and if a patriot, he is as much for
his country and its laws and insti
tutions as is the soldier in her
army. A man does not always need
a gun in order to fight for his
country. Every good citizen is en
listed for his country's cause. It is
the cause of the people of Hawaii
that injury and suffering be shut
out by prevention of crime through
punishment of the guilty.

in the patriotic army to war against
crime and must wield the sword of

good men and true.

MADE A GREAT HIT.
Th Amateur Pianiat Who Thought Ha

An orchestra leader who conducted
for Rubinstein when the great must
clan was on tour, tells of a joke play
ed in one city on an amateur pianist.
"The amateur's fattier was the own
er of a large hall, and bo offered the
use of It to Rubinstein for his benefit.
There was to be a piece for four
pianos, and the amateur wag to piny
one of the instruments. I was the
leader. I thought Rubinstein would
have a fit when I told him that the
amateur couldn't play three straight

'twas no good. The bills were out and

teur came down to rehearsal and we
praised him up until be thought he
was to be the star of the night. As
soon as be left we took the hammers
out of his plnuo and made it dumb as
an oyster. I guessed he would never
know the difference with three pianos
going at once.
"And, just as I thought, that ami
teur and his friends never discovered
the trick. No, sir; he just sailed in
and pounded on that piano as If it was
the worst enemy he ever had. He was
bound to show off among so many
good pianists, and he hammered on
bis keyboard until the perspiration
nearly blinded htm. Now and then I

did he gave the piano a lick thut near
