to Grand Jury
ABLE ADDRESS MAKES DEEP
IMPRESSION ON MEMBERS OF
BODY AND OTHERS WHO j
Gentlemen of the Grand Jury: The
summoning of a Grand Jury In ac
cordance with the Act of Congress
proscribing a government for the Ter
ritory of Hawaii furnishes occasion
for a preliminary consideration of
the powers you shall exercise, the
duties you shall perform and the rela
tions you bear to the Court and the
In the whole history of judicial pro
ceedure there can not be found an
Institution designed and adapted for
preventing the abuses that may arise
from partiality, malice, envy, hatred
or hasty action equal to the' system
of the Grand Jury.
You represent, in the hishest sense,
the country; and in fact are, for the
purpose of presenting crime, the
country Itself assembled for inquisi
tion. Before a person can be presented
for trial, as the result of your investi
gations, it must appenr to you,, as the
representatives of the people, that
the facts presented to you require
that he be publicly charged and tried
If you do not so conclude, he is ab
solved from the necessity and the
complaint against him is buried In the
secrecy of your sacred deliberations.
In the olden days under the former
government of these Islands, the ar
raignment of persons accused of
crime was left solely to the Attorney
General and the presiding Judge, but
that condition of things no longer
exist Now, the fundamental rights
to life, liberty and the pursuit of
happiness, considered as individual
possessions, are secured by those
maxims of constitutional law which
are the monuments showing the vic
torious progress of the race, in sec
uring to man the blessings of civili
sation under the reign of just and
equal laws. The very idea that one
man may be compelled to hold his life
or liberty or any material rights es
sential to the enjoyment of life at
the mere will of another seems to be
Intolerable in any country where free
dom prevails, as being the essence of
The trust reposed in Grand Juries
is exceedingly great. You are ap
pointed not for the prosecutor or the
Court! but for the government and
In your hands and in your keeping
the law, for the time being, to a
large extents, commits the general
welfare, safety, morality and happi
ness of this community. (
You shall have no enemies to pun
ish and no friends to reward or favor.
The law, which shall be your guide,
is no respecter of persons. Before
you nil persons, regardless of race,
position or situation In life, previous
or present condition, religious or poli
tical views, or political affiliation are
absolutely equal. Matters coming to
your knowledge Involving crime
should be diligently and carefully
examined into, however feebly pre
sented, in order that crime may be
discouraged and punished. On the
other hand, Innocence, no matter how
strongly assailed by accusation or by
whatever accusers should be secure
in the protection which the law as
sures. I trust, therefore, gentlemen,
that you will be impressed with the
responsibility of your office and the
importance of your duties, and as
conscientious and intelligent men,
whom the people vet with The high
est prerogatives that they can bestow
you will pursue your functions and
discharge your obligations with an
eyu single to justice and truth.
The County Attorney or his Deputy
will be at your service to advise you
as to the law, and to present to you
Buoh evidence as you may consider
You are not, however, bound to find
any bill because presented by him,
nor are you to be influenced or eon
trolled by blm but guided solely by
the law and your sense of justice
and governed by the evidence pro
duced before you. The County At
torney and his Deputy will serve yon
as the conscientiousness of their duty
directs, and the observation is only
to show you that your conclusions
shall be untrammeled, that you are
Independent and should bo act
You will investigate all matters
brought before you carefully and will
not present any person, or fall to,
from any motive save justice. You
may ana should avail yourselves of
all proper means of Investigating
crime and wrong conditions existing
act by committee or as Individuals in
Investigating matters upon which
your lull body may r.fterwards act
You will keep secret your own doings
and permit no person to talk to you
thereon except In the course of your
Investigation and within the limits of
You may, hen you finally report,
make such recommendations, if any
you have, as appear proper touching
any matters of public concern, public
Institutions, public officers and public
welfare, and present the same to th
And finally, remember, gentlemen,
that you are not angels of mercy, nor
ore you ministers of oppression, but
Intelligent arrd honest men sworn to
do your duty according to the best
of your understanding.

IS THE KAISER GLORY-MAD!
It Is well to call attention to a few
facts which lie close lo the surface
In this titanic Euiopean upheaval and
which should be especially Instruct
ive to all military men. First, one
hears on all sides In the United States
that the German Kaiser is glory
hungry and that, In a mad desire
to achieve a name like Frederick the
Great or Napoleon, he has flung ills
great army in the face of Europe.
Born in 1859, he is now fifty-five years
of age. A gray-haired grandfather
does not seek military glory.
The Kaiser has so well kept the
peace of Europe during the twenty tlx
years of his reign that Mr. Carnegie
only a few months ago presented to
him a tribute as an expression of the
admiration of peace lovers the world
over for the magnificent work he had
done to prevent war in Europe during
his yeara of power. Now to say that
he has plunged nations Into war for
a mere freak is to misjudge entirely
those racial currents which for cen
turies, like some deeply hidden stream
that undermines mountains and
brings the loftiest peak level with the
plain, have torn through all conven
tions am! diplomatic agreements and
made their way in blood to the attain
ment of their ultimate object. There
has been more than one occasion
when the Cerman Emperor, if he had
been glory-mad, could have thrown
his sword into the balance with far
more chance of achieving success
than at the present time. When the
Russian Empire was in that fierce
grapple with Japan, Wllhelm was ten
years younger than he is ti day and
should have been more eager to
achieve military fame than when only
fifteen years away from threescore
years and ten, which nre supposed to
round out the life of the average
Again at the time of the Agadir in
cident In Africa a splendid opportuni
ty presented itself for creating a reas
on for going to war, but the Kaiser
sat firm and the war clouds blew over.
Why, then, should the conclusion be
jumped at that the German Emperor
has no other ambition now than to
achieve glory? Emperors at hla age,
In the history of the world generally,
have already established their repu
tations and have been content to pass
the remaining years of their reign in
Americans, not having been placed
in an environment when they could
feel the pressure of rival races, natur
ally form he opinion that the great
military establishment of the Cr'-rman
Emperor is responsible for this war,
and they cannot understand how a
thing that appears so small to them
as the Ausrto-Servia imbroglio should
result in this pan-European confla
gration. This attitude on their part is
due to their ignorance of conditions
that have obtained in their own coun
try. Only a few months ago the Unit
ed States invaded territoiy of Mexico
and seized her greatest port because
a certain salute was not given to the
American flag. Doubtless the Amer
ican people would have been much
aggrieved if Europe had mocked them
for entering upon hostilities for such
a trivial cause.
We who watch over the Monroe
Doctrine with a nervous care are
scarcely in a position to shout "mili
tarism" at tho Germans or Austrians
when they risk the arbitrament of
war for a principle or racial homo
geneity that may have just as solid a
basis in the needs of the people as has
that Doctrine. One very important
thing which the American people
should learn is that each continent.
each people has issues peculiar to it
self, and that it not proper for a
country thousands of miles away to
envoke from the depths of its Isola
tion a sneer or a criticism for people
who may be just as faithfully living
up to tho necessities of their national
existence as did the American people
in 1801 when they preferred to pre
cipitate the greatest civil war in his
tory rather than see part of their fed
eration withdraw to form a separate

CANDLE WAX STAIN.
There Is no better way to remove
candle wax from fabrics than to place
a piece of blotting paper over It and
another under It, then put a warm, not
hot, flat iron on the upper piece of
blotting paper, says the Newark
News. In time the heat will draw
the wax out into the paper.

marking if dipped in cold starch. The

soaking before washing. If this meth
