Sir: We, the Grand Jury

sidcring and thoroughly investigate

our attention, herewith submit our
In addition to the ten indict
ments already handed in, we find
three others presented herewith.
We investigated one case in
which we found 110 bill.
We believe that certain matters
brought before us demand more
than passing notice; we, therefore,
present them under appropriate
In.our investigation of the Land
Department, we, ns Grand Jury
men, cannot too strongly condemn
the methods iu vogue respecting
the maimer in which that depart
ment has transacted public business,
and with this end in view, we en
deavor to present such evidence to
the public as will result iu n thor
ough overhauling of that depart
ment, and an entirely new system
put in operation by which public
funds will be deposited or held as
such and not on personal deposit
or hehi personally as in the past;
also, that government laud patents
iu which the applicant has complied
with all conditions and made full
payment will he issued more
promptly; also that all government
land agents handling public funds
be $&.!u under bonds.
We most severely censure the
main office, located in Honolulu, for
their lax methods itn the past,
which will be .shown by a few of
the cases and copies of two letters
MONIES TAID ON RIGHT OP PUR
On investigation, we find that
Mr. R. D. Baldwin paid over the
following amounts: April 11, 1904,
$318 was paid over to G. H. Wil;
liams, Sub-ageiU; 011 April 28, 1904,
the sum of $4371.51 was paid to
J. W. Pratt, Commissioner of Pub
lic Lands; on May 6th, the sum of
$6.00 was paid to G. II. Williams,
sub-agent making a total of $4695.

I D. Baldwin by twenty-four individ
uals as purchase price on Right of
Purchase leases and dated as far
back as September 28, 1900, and
, have beeri in his possession for over
I three years and six months, it being
j the custom to hold such monies as
special deposits as shown in letters
of Commissioner of Public Lands.
On examination of witnesses and
various applicants, we find, though
'several had deposited the amount
! of purchase price and had paid the
rents at regular times for some
reason or other, they had not
fulfilled all conditions and iu some
I instances had done so very re
cently. j Here the Grand Jury cite numer-
ous cases coining before them where
monies were held on deposit for
years and the applicants had
complied with all requirements.
Patents had not been issued and the
'money! never returned to rightful
owners. One homesteader, having
no advice to the contrary, believed

If the Attorney General's De
partment iu Honolulu had taken,
or will take, the same pains to ferret
out evidence against offenders as
has been done iu this instance by
their representative here, the ring
leaders would beassuredly punished.
There is no doubt in the minds
oftlie members of this Grand Jury
as to the extensive practice of sell
ing liquor without license and the
great difficulty is in securing evi
dence. Therefore, we would re
commend to the proper authorities
to renew'their efforts iu putting a
stop to the illicit sale of liquors.
There is yet 'another phase to this
question, viz: retail liquor dealers
who pay an annual license of $1,000
have a legal right to be protected.
Two cases in which indictments
were brought relate to a most
heinous crime. We believe severest
punishment should be meted out to
those beasts in human form who
are guilty of rape or attempts there

January, 1901, a report was made
by a grand jury recommending the
acquirement of suitable quarters for

of this recommendation, we would
now bring this matter again to the
attention of this Fourth Circuit
