GRAND JURORS CLEARED.
Complying with the request of
this Honorable Court', we have tho
roughly Investigated the charge made
that a member of this jury endeavored
to influence action of a trial juror In
tho caso being tried. We find that
there was no justification for such
charge, and have completely exoner
ated said grand juror.
"In tho opinion of this grand jury,
Mr. Hugh M. Coke acted Indiscreetly
In referring tho above matter to coun
sel for the defense in the caso then
being tried, Instead of first bringing
the matter to tho attention of the
Court. This we leave to the discre
tion of the Court.
NO THIRD DEGREE.
"We beg to report that we have
made full Investigation of the action
of the police department in conduct,
lng investigations for crime, at certain
stages of our Investigation even eli
minating all persons from the grand
jury room excepting such person be
ing questioned, and we find from all
the evidence brought before us that
no harsh methods have been used by
tho police department in cases under

any evidence to sliow that they were

senal for Company T.
"Inasmuch as we find the accom
modations in the County Jail inade
quate for prisoners and persons held
in detention, wo recommend that the
I three cells above mentioned bo used
for tho accommodation of Inmates of
the jail only, and that the attention
of tho proper authorities bo called
by this Honorable Court to tho facts
above mentioned, and that proper
quarters for the arsenal be provided
If possible. The Inadequacy of present
quarters is such that the only cell
held In reserve for the accommodation
of any newcomer is the dark cell,
and without reflecting on anyone con
nected either with the police depart
ment or the jailors quite frequently
this dark cell had to be used where a
lighter cell would have been the ordin
ary receiving cell.
NEWSPAPER STORIES DENIED .
"We have endeavored to fulfill our
duty with dispatch, and are thankful
to this Court and the Attorney Gene
ral's Department for assistance given
us In pur Investigation. We feel that
there has been no justification for se
veral inspired newspaper articles, and
trust that this report shall bo given
due publicity for the enlighenment of
those not aware of true conditions."

1IILO, April 20. Considerable excitement was occasioned here
when what appeared to bo an official report was received from Hono
lulu to the eirect that Anderson Grace, the neju'o murderer of Malm,
the Hawaiian watchman at Watertown, I 'earl Harbor, Honolulu, was
a passenger for Ililo aboard the Inter-Island steamship Mauna Kea,
and that it was his intention to land here with the purpose of con
necting with some steamship for the mainland States or to get away
from the islands in some windjammer bound for a distant port.
The police were at once vigilant and active, and the Manna Kea
was boarded by detectives, headed by Deputy Sheriff Fetter, before
there was any opportunity ot a passenger getting ashore.
Fetter conducted a thorough search of the Mauna Kea, looking
for the escape, but failed to lind any trace of him.

Chief of Detectives Arthur McDuIUo
more than anybody else, is at work
night and day in the hunt for Ander
son Grace, the escaped murderer,
though-the negro did not escape from
the hands of tho police who at first
captured him, but escaped from tho
custody of tho Territorial authorities, I
that is from the Territorial prison. I
In spito of the fact that Grace was a
Federal convict committed to the caro
i of the Territorial prison authorities,
McDufile has to philosophically take
the criticism of people, who don't un
derstand the situation, for not having
brought in the escaped negro.
His Excellency Chief Justice A. S. Hart well of the Territorial
Supreme Court, contemplates leaving Honolulu per P. M. S. S. Korea

daughter, Miss l'ernice, for a visit to the States, Canada and Europe.

Judge nartwell expects to return to Honolulu late in September,
in" time for the October term of the Supreme Court.
Duriiiir the absence of the Chief Justice, should any cases arise,
Justices Perry and DePolt will call in some attorney or judge of the
circuit court to fill out the supreme bench.
Judge nartwell expects to linish up all pending cases before tak
