The report of the Hilo Legislative
Committee on the Court House mid
jail has been made and forwarded
o Honolulu. The report is ns fol
The undersigned committee to
whom was referred the duty of in
vestigating the condition of the
Hilo Court House and Jail, and the
legislation, if any, necessary, lieg
leave to report the following:
The present Court House build
ing was built at Hilo in the year
1869 and with slight modifications
and repairs from time to time, re
mains today as it did over thirty
years ago. It is a two story frame
building surrounded by a parking
of perhaps an acre and a half, hav
ing a District Court room and clerk's
office on the ground floor and a
Circuit Court room and Judge's
Chambers upstairs. There is at
present no witness nor jury room,
and all sessions of the Grand Jury
and petty juries are held in the fire
man's hall some distance removed
from the Court House. The quar
ters of the Circuit Court and retir
ing room of the presiding Judge are
wholly inadequate and should be
While an entire new Court House
building constructed of stone or
some more permanent material than
wood is desirable, yet ample accom
modations for all purposes could
be provided by the addition of a
separate building for the use of the
District Magistrate's or Police
Court. Such a new building should
be built to accommodate not only
the District Magistrate with a Po
lice Court room and offices, but
headquarters of the police, Sheriffs
and Deputy Sheriffs offices. A
calaboosejr lock-up should also be
provided in connection with the
Police headquarters and could be
included undergone roof in this
While the old Court House is in
a fairly good state of preservation,
it is sorely in need of painting,
which would not only add very
much to its present unsightly ap
pearance but preserve the Wpd
from decay. The verandahs, stair
ways, railings, and other certain
portions of building require repairs
and at present arc dangerous to life
In connection with the subject of
a Court house, we deem it not im
proper to state that the quarters
occupied by the Assessor and Tax
Collector in the Court House square
is a tumble-down, rickety affair, an
eye sore to the city and the com
munity at large. It mars an other
wise very pretty and only park in
the city of Hilo. In the event of
the construction of a building for
the use of a Police Court, P61ice
headquarters and Sheriff's office,
the small cottage now occupied by
the Sheriff's office and Police sta
tion should be utilized for the Tax
office. The expense of changing
its present location where it could
be available for a Tax office would
be very small. The present Tax
office should be demolished.
With reference to the Hilo Jail,
this institution is at present located
in the heart of the city and very
objectionable to the property owners
and citizens living in that vicinity.
The present quarters, while well
kept and in fairly good condition,
are too small to accommodate the
number of prisoners of ten required
to be confined here and are poorly
arranged to prevent escapes. The
Jail building proper consists of only
eleven available rooms or cells, and
as the average number of prisoners
is eighty, it necessitates the crowd
ing of a number of prisoners in each
cell. The number is often much
larger, especially during the terms
of Court, when there are always a
number of committal cases awaiting
action by the Grand Jury or sen
tence. Separate quarters apart from
prisoners convicted, jind if possible
better accommodations should be
provided for such cases.
The present location of the Jail
is objectionable, the building is
crowded and the enclosure is not
safe. There should be established
on the outskirts of the City a Jail
well removed from the residence
portion, capable of accommodating
150 or 200 prisoners, The Govern
ment owns tracts of laud from two '
to three miles distant from the
Court House, available for this
purpose and which would make ex
cellent sites for a Jail. Kallmann. or
Waiakea have both been suggested
as possible locations for such a pe
nal institution. The ptemiscs now
occupied could be utilized for other
purposes, by the Government or
divided up into building lots. The
presence of the ugly high fence sur
rounding the Jail yard and the fre
quent passage of prisoners to and
from the place, has depreciated the
the value of splendid building pro
perty in the center of the City.
The effect also, of prisoners in the
chain gang or in striped suits
marched through the main streets of
Hilo daily to and from the Jail is
not a wholesome or elevating object
lesson to the young, and is very
objectionable. For these and other
reasons, the Jail should be removed
to a site distant from the much fre
quented parts of the City.
A summary of your Committee's
recommendations upon the subjects
referred to it for investigation and
report, arc as follows:
First. Hilo Jail, for the removal
and construction of an enlarged jail
and grounds at a suitable site on
the outskirts of Hilo, $25,000.
Second. Police Court, for the
erection of a two story building,
with accommodations for District
Magistrate, Clerk, Sheriff, Deputy
Sheriff; Police Station and lock-up,
upon the Court House premises,
Third. Tax Office, for the re
moval and remodeling of the pre
mises new occupied by the Sheriff's
Office and Police Station to a suit
able place upon the Court House
Fourth. Hilo Court House, for
painting, repairs to verandahs,
stairways, railings and other repairs
building occupied by the Circuit
Court, $1,000. Total, $10,000.

HONOKAA is the most thriving com
munity outside of Hilo on the windward
coast of the Island of Hawaii. It is situ
ated 50 miles from Hilo at an elevation
of 1500 feet which renders the climate
salubrious. Above the cane lands arc
numerous homesteads on which coffee,
cane and vegetables are extensively cul
tivated. Regular stage lines connect
with all outlying districts. The 4th
Circuit Court meets at Houokaa annually
in July, Regular steamers call to dis
charge and receive freight.

Homo Rule County Bill.
At the morning session of the
House of Representatives today,
Mr. Kupihea, the introducer of the
Home Rule County Bill which was
tabled by a solid Republican vote
during the first days of the session,
moved that the bill be taken from
the table. There was no discus
sion and the motion carried with a
vote of 19 in favor. The next move
was to pass the bill in first reading
by title, which carried, and it was
then referred to the Printing Com
mittee. The action taken in the House
this afternoon was the result of
strenuous work done in various
quarters yesterday afternoon in cau
cuses held by both Republicans and
Home Rulers. The later stated
that they did not think they had
been given a fair deal. Their bill,
without having even been heard by
title, had been laid on the table and
there had been no further considera
tion of it. The Home Rulers con
tended that there were many good
features in the bill and that it was
no more than right that these
should be placed before the mem
bers for their consideration. They
finally succeeded in making enough
members of the Republican party
see the thing fromtheir standpoint,
and it was agreed that the bill
should be taken off the table and
Early Vote 011 C111111I.
Washington, D. C, March 10.
During today's session of the Sen
ate, Senator Morgan continued his
speech against the ratification of the
Panama Canal Treaty. Morgan
contends that the treaty now before
the Senate does not embody the
provisions made mandatory by the
Spooner Law. Notwithstanding
Morgan's fight, which is largely
personal, both sides of the contro
versy have agreed to an early vote.
It is believed that it will be pos
sible for all speeches to be made and
the vote reached within a week.
