Teachers' Hemline Circle Produce
Drama of " Caesar."
The Teachers' Reading Circle gave a
presentation of Shakespeare's "Caesar"
at the home of Mr. and Mrs. L. C. Lyman
last Tuesday night to a company of thirty
or forty spectators. The parlor and din
ing room were used tor auditorium ami
stage, the arch between making a suitable
proscenium. The rear of the stage was
tastefully decorated with potted plants
and on the walls hung pictures depicting
scenes and characters of the Caesarian
epoch in Rome.
The entertainment was more an impro
vizatiou than an attempt to seriously stage
one of the most difhcult plays of the
great dramatist. The time devoted to
preparation was very snort ami me piece
was given without a single rehearsal.
The entertainment, with these explana
tions, was a pronounced success. Mrs.
A. G. Curtis had the matter in charge aud
has been asked to repeat the performance
in a hall that will accommodate the pub
lic. In the play the best portrayal of
characters was by W. C Cooke and Mrs.
Curtis, who enacted the roles of Cassius
and Portia respectively. Win, McClusky
made a first-class Brutus and J. Castle
Ridcway cave a faithful delineation of
Marc Autouv. Franklin Howland ap
peared as Dccius. The characters of
Caesar and Calphronla were represented
by L. W. Haworth and Mrs. R. II. Reid.

Hilo Barns Club IMans Celebration
"A Scotsman's love for" the wlmplin'
rills, the broomie knave's and heather
hilts, and songs o' love wha's sweetness
thrills the hearts o' men and maids, is
never more in evidence than during the
progress of a "Burn's Anniversary" cele
bration. The martial strains of "Scots wha
hael" may bring the fighting flash into
his eye, but the tender, melting notes of
"Afton Water" or "Braw Braw lads"
bring back to his memory the sweetness
of "Auld Lang Syne" when "Behind you
hills where sugar flows;" he whispered
words of endearment into the ears of his
"Bonnie Lassie," who blushed with
pleasure to find that her lad "was nac the
gawk she had thocht him."
The spirit of sterling independence,
and brotherly, love which breathes
through every line of "A mans man
for a' that" enables him, on occasions of
this character, to take the hand of friend
and foe alike, and modestly to confess
that "We're a' Jock Tauisons bairnc the

REPORT OE GRAND JURY.
Hilo Police Department upheld and
Commended for Zeal.
, On Wednesday afternoon at a o'clock,
the Grand Jury appeared in Court to
make a final report. The report was
read by Foreman, C. C. Kennedy and
follows In full:
January 14th, 1903.
To the Honorable Gilbert F. Little, Judge
of the Fourth Circuit Court Hilo,
We the Grand Jurors for the January, 1903,
term of the Fourth Circuit Court
herewith beg to submit our report:
We have had presented for our con
sideration thirty Calender Cases out of
which we have found indictments agaii.st
twenty-five, in the balance of cases we
did not find sufficient evidence to sub
stantiate the charges.
In the taking of evidence in the severa
cases coming before us several side issues
have arisen which havc(bcen thoioughly
investigated and are herein reported on.
It is be deplored that there seems to be
a growiug tendency for the committing
of crime on this island, and that a large
proportion of the same is committed by
In passing it may be observed that
there was a case brought before the Qrand
Jury which involved a most dastardly and
licnlous crime. It appears tuat a young
rorio-Kican wile, an orphan, without any
known relative, was found murdered, the
primary cause of death bcimr cerebral
hemorrhage, but upon examination of the
houy, the child was round to be horribly
lacerated in the pubic region, proving
uiai sue nau, prior 10 ucaiu uccn subject
ed to rape and afterward beaten to death.
When the police authorities were notified
of this crime, occurring practically with
in our midst, they used every endeavor to
seek aud find the perpetrator of the hor
rible deed, but unfortunately, owing to
the mendacity aud sccrctivciiess of the
person suspected by the authorities of
being cognizant of the matter their efforts
were abortive, through however no lack
of energy or investigation.
The Grand Jury further reports that
there has been some degree ol adverse
criticism concerning the police depart
ment in its efforts and zeal to get at the
truth of the matter and bring the culprit
to justice which he richly deserves. We
would say in this behalf that our popula
tion is now most cosmopolitan, and un
fortunately we arc burdened and infested
with a very undesirable class of people, a
people which is a constant source of anx
iety to the decent aud law abiding citi
zens of this Territory.
It must be remembered that the police
department is here for the protection and
safeguard of every citizen, poor or rich,
011 this island and that there arc times
when in order to discover and ferret out
crime and for the protection of life and
property that they arc sometimes called
to employ extraordinary measures for the
protection of same. In some instaces the
end justifies the means, and we believe,
after a full and thorough examination
and investigation, that the case which
has been brou ht to the attention of the
Grand Jury is oue of those that may well
be classed in this category.
The work which has been presented
shows that there has been during the
past sixvinionths an unusually great
amount of high crime, and we are of the
opinion that the Hilo Police Force is
entitled to commendation for the energy
mm iiucuiciiuc biiuwit 111 uriuguig criini
nals to justice.
Several cases before the Grand Jury for
investigation led to the inguiry as to the
system of issuing marriage licenses, and
we find that many such licenses have
been issued allowing the marriage of
children uuuer age without the consent
of either parents or guardian. We
would recommend that all marriage
licenses be issued only from the office of
the Clerk of the Circuit Court, or one re
sponsible deputy appointed for each dis
trict by the Circuit Judge, and that the
commissions of all other Marriage License
Agents be cancelled.
The Garbage System as introduced
some time ago under the supervision of
the Sanitary Officer with aid of prison la
bor and private subscription has provid
ed for the removal of the most "of the
filth and is much improved over former
conditions. The question of sewerage is
now a more serious problem and should
be given no small amount of attention.
We have visited various locations of the
City and we report as follows:
With relation of the locality on the
south side of Front Street between Pons
hawai and Furneaux Streets we find
houses in which numbers of Asiatics ore
living built over stagnant water with very
little ventilation under the buildings.
We suggest for the welfare of the com
munity aud as a safeguard against spread
of disease that laws relative to the regu
lating of sanitary conditions be more
strictly enforced. That property holders
in tins locality be required to comply
with the same. The water for domestic
purposes has in many cases for its outlet
a neighbor yard, or seeks its level under
the dwelling houses, being charged with
all kinds of organic matter is a breeding
place for disease germs and a menace to
public health. '
The Territory has already been placed
expense as a result ot similar
011s in Honolulu, and we would
urge the need of the above mentioned
We have visited the Jail and from a
sanitary standpoint have found it in
good condition and reflects credit on
those in charge, but we find the jail build
ing to be small and ill arranged for the
needs of this island, and would recom
mend that the legislature provide for its
