( living to I lie imposition of low
von nnl liiigntils to postpone or
set tie cuses out of court, the bottom
tripped out of Judge Parson's
mIimiiIhi for the special term. Aside
from the trial of one civil nnd two
criminal ense, there have been no
jury trials. While the grand jury
were at their deliberations, Judge
Parsons devoted Thursday nnd
Friday of last week to cleaning up
the calendar of cases in which he
was disqualified, or in wliuli the
control etsies hail been postponed
br settled between litigants. A

times by Judge Patsons, among

It soon became known about the
streets that the cases of embezzle
ment alleged to have been dis
covend in the local laud offices
against K. I). Dalduin, Chas.
Williams and others had been
dropped, 1 11 account Of the failure
of the grand jury to return an in
diciment in any of the casts present
ed. These were the cases in which
Baldwin and Williams as respective
sub-ageuts of lauds at Ililo and
Ilonokaa, and Win. K. Kngsdale,
ranger, were chaiged with mis
appropriation of government funds.
Attornet General Andrews has
been giving his personal attention
to these ca$is and came to the
special term of court at Ililo to
prosecute the several cases. He
felt confident of securing an indict
ment against former Sub-agent
Baldwin. H.ildivin's conduct had
already been the subject of an in
vestigation by the last grand jury,
which while criticizing the local
office for lax limitless methods,
failed to return an indictment.
I,ater, on June 9th, on the dis
cove ry of additional cvir ence. At
torney General Andrews accom
panied by Auditor J. II. Fisher
made a special visit to Hilo,
and after a tho otigh examination
of witnesses, arraigned Baldwin be
fore District Magistrate Hapai at a
special night session. Baldwin
waived examination and his case
came before the present grand jury
for investigation. When that body
failed to find bills against Williams
and Baldwin 011 the new showing
of evidence, Attorney General An
drews called up the case of Win.
K. Ragsdale, which had resulted in
a mistrial at the last term of court,
and entered a nolle prosequi.
I There is a general feeling of ap
'provalover the grand jury's fin d
jings that whatever irregularities
I that occurred in the local offices are
chargeable to the main office in
1 Honolulu. Attorney General An
drews was much disappointed with
I the grand jury report,
i He took the afternoon train
land left overland for Houuano,
where he caught the Mauna Loa
for Honolulu, leaving the remain
der of the criminal ctses to be pros
ecuted by attorney C. S. Smith.
The grand jury returned nine in
dictments. They investigated two
cases in which they found no bill
and one case which was later with
drawn. Their report, made by W.
I IX Schmidt, foreman, is as follows:

Mike Lchttaiitii, the hack driver
who was indicted for attempting to
murder his wife by shooting, plead
guilty to the charge nnd put him

One of Sheriff Andrews' old
friends, Francisco Lopez, the Porto

not count them, was indicted for
burglarizing a store at Ouomea on
of his breaks for liberty.
Rafael Pomales, a luna on the
Olaa plantation, was indicted for
assulling a Porto Rican country
man, with a p"ckct knife. A true
bill was also found against Cat Ins
I.eauder for a similar offence.
Growing out of a fight in July
last in Puna between two Potto
Rictus, M-verul witnesses in the
case who testified to the facts before
Judge Kamau, snitched on their
evidence before the grand jury,
lem iug upon cxamiua ion that
they knew anything about the dif
ficulty. The grand jury felt that
pttrjury had been committed and
returned thtee indictments against
Hugeiie Santiago, Frank Borden,
and Aquilino Otis for pttrjury.
Another witness was released for
lack of convicting testimony.
There is one murder case, Oda
Takashiro, a Japanese, who is
charged with causing the death
ofSugai Masajun a cutting affray
at Am u 11 In camp As the defen
dant was caught red-handed, in a
drunken dclitium, waving the
bloody knife over the prostrate form
of his victim, he had no defense to
offer except that of intoxication.
He plead guilty and Judge Parsons
,on Wednesday sentenced the mur
derer to ten years imprisonment,
which was generally regarded as a
very light punishment.

Kanaloa, a native woman charged

Watanabe and Funakoshi were

On the civil side of the calender,

cases likewise were passed to the
November term. The two cases

Wailtiku, July 30. Ten years
ago Judge Copp was so thoroughly
convinced that coffee would grow
in the Kokomo district of Malcawao,
Maui, that he devoted fifteen acres
of his home property to the berry.
His original supply was from
half grown trees believed to have
come from the Azores, but later
abondoned. A News representa
tive was shown over the plantation
and saw the effect of trimming trees
in half grown state, but which were
planted at the same time as the uti
trimmed, which measure from seven
to ten feet high.
Judge Copp believes that the
trimming has the same effect on the
trees as the bleeding of a person:
ie it weakens the tr,ees and conse
quently retards the growth.
The entire crop, outside of a few
families which are supplied, is
shipped in the parchment to the
Hilo Coffee Mill. Maui News.

The germs are everywhere. No

is necessary, especially at this
time of year, that disinfectants
