GRAND JURY DEFENDED
Editor Gaudux Island,
There should be something said
in behalf of the two sets of Grand
Jurors that found a true bill in the
Kekaha murder case where four
teen Japanese were indicted for
murder in the first degree. Now,
Mr. Editor, when the case was pre
sented to the Grand Jury, the law
was read to them. If I remember
right, it read thus:
"Any person or persons who
take part in a riot is guilty of any
offence committed at the time,"
The evidence plainly shows that
these fourteen Japanese were there
and took active part in the riot.
The case had been taken in the
hands of officers of the Government
for some time. An able Attorney
from Honolulu, representing the
Attorney General's Department,
conducted the examining of the
witnesses before the Grand Jurv. " , Z ,1 TV '"'J0- or"l

the tout teen Japanese took active
part in the riot.
In finding a true bill I think the
Grand Jurors did their duty as law
Your writer and the two sets of
Grand Jurors can not be expected
to know the law or techuicallities
In my opinion there are too
many law points used in our courts
now days, and the writer believes
he is voicing the sentiment of the
majority if not all of the Grand
Jurors who were on the case.
Politics might not be so bad
but for some of the people in it.

Mr. Brodie's idea, seems to be, j
that anyone able to criticise the I
present course of study, should be
able to form a new on..-. This
idea might pass with a theorist,
but a good, practical knowledge of
practical possibilities has gotten
st- r 1' eory backed clean off the
st . T. every teacher who of
fers .riticismis supposed to be able
to lorm a complete course of study,
then why not make them all su
pervising principals? Surely thev
would be qualified!
It is lnrdlv fair to our teachers
to ask them to tell the department
of its errors and to further request
them to do the wortk which right
fully belongs to highly paid depart
mental officials. That they should
be requested to give their views on
the present course of study, that
better results may obtain, is only
to he expected. That such request
will be welcomed by every teacher
on the island, the public can feel
But to ask teachers for another
course of study along with such
criticism, is on a par with the fel
low who is not to be taken inca
pable simply because he finds a
bit of criticism in things unnn
which he cannot improve. For in
