The rain it ralueth every day,
Upon the' just and unjust fellows;
But chiefly on the just because
The unjust takes the just's umbrellas.
With this issue, a new manage
racnt assumes the control of the
Tridunk. The policy of the paper
will he, iu general, as it has been
iu the past. The paper will con
tinue to use whatever ability it
possesses and whatever influence it
can bring to bear to promote the
interests of the people of these
islands and of our island in parti
cular. There are questions of
special commercial importance at
this titnwbat arc up for settlement.
The Tridunb joins heartily in the
move now being made looking to
the proper presentation of the needs
of the Territory, apparently so little
understood abroad. In return for
its labors in their behalf the Tri
bune hopes to have the liberal
patronage and support of the people
of this island. The mechanical de
partment will be kept up to the
highest possible standards. New
and up-to-date equipment will be
received in the immediate future; a
first-class job printer, also, from the
mainland, has been carefully se
lected and will have charge of the
job department. Offering the com
pliments of the season, and trusting
this may be a year of rapid aud
permanent development for Hilo,
we lend our hand to the promotion
of all of its interests.
A NEW YEAR'S SERMON.
Now is the time to subscribe to
New Year's resolutions. The cele
bration of New Year's antedates
history. In fact few civilized na
ious, or even semi,-civilized nations,
lave been found 'that do not have
omc ceremony of the sort at this
It is most generally observed,
often in the, breach, by making
, New Year's resolutions or "swearing
off." Don't swear off and don't
swear on. If you want to stop, just
quit. Do not let your good im
pulses be hindered by the certainty
that your resolutions will have
vanished by February first. To
keep all your resolutions would be
to have an inordinate -self-conceit
and few could attain it, although
most of us are conceited in our own
small way. Nevertheless it will do
you good to make the usual batch
of brave resolves with the begin
ning of the year. Some of us may
enter upon the new year by cutting
loose from the past and taking a
stronger grip on the future. Now
is the time to get rid of our vices,
quit our meannesses and become
perfect model and upright members
of the community. It may be, and
it is very likely, that we may find
all these worthy resolves broken
before the week is out, for human
nature is prone to strive and fall
since the days before Atlantis sunk
in the sea.
The entire universe is held to
gether by its habit of falling. All
progress in the world is held
together by a series of falls. Walk
ing, running, swimming, flying all
is falling, recovering and falling
again. The law of gravitation is
simply the law of falling. If it
were not for this tendency of all
things to fall, this world of ours
would fly in fragments into space,
If we did not sometimes fall, we
would burst with self-conceit. All
men must fall, but no man need lie
Wu are indebted to the retiring
editor of the Tridunk for the pro
duction of this week's issue, his
services having been called into
requisition on account of the late

LKUAL CUSTODY Otf lUMSEIit'.
Jailor MubT is Itcrtnlrod to Conllno
With nil the dignity that usually nt
taches to a grand jury report, there are
some omusng situations growing ofit of
the investigations of the llllo Jail and the
sweeping indictment of the entire all
force, including Jailor J. H. Maby. Asa
consequence, Jailor Maby aud his suitor.
dinatc officers are required to keep them
selves under restraint until the cases come
on for trial next Monday befoVe Judge
Parsons. The service of the process upon
officers at the llllo Tall has made no ap
parent chance iu the orderly working of
that institution and none of the men
under fire appear to be disturbed by the
action of the grand jury.
It Is stated that there Is a political move
behind the charges presented to the
grand jury, which has for its purpose the
removal of Jailor Maby aud the jail force
and the appointment of a new set of
officers, who will be subservient to a
political ring. The same parties who
created the mix-up between the Sheriff
and the Board of Supervisors over the ap
pointment of police officers, aud which
filially resulted in a decision by the
Supreme court upholding the Sheriff
arc said to be behind the scheme. One
of them, a deposed Police Captain seeks
reappointment and aspires to become
custodian of the llllo Jail through a
leading light in the Young Mens' Repub
lican Club, whose influence haa become
somewhat attenuated since the last elec
There has been continued friction, it is
alleged, between the Jailor and the
younger leaders of the party over the
matter of subordinate appointments, the
Jailor giving preference to the recou-
mendatlons-of the precinct clubs. One
of the Hilo supervisors has been drawn
into the fight and is using his official in
fluence to cause Mr. Maby's removal. In
his official capacity he has written to
High Sheriff Henry making complaint
that prisoners were being used about Mr.
Maby's house, the hospital aud court
house grounds, when their setvices could
be better employed on the roads under
Road Supervisor Lyman. He also ex
presses the belief that the jails of the
islands could be better managed by the
supervisors than under the present ar
rangement. This latter phase of the
situation appears to be beyond the juris
diction of the county, and High Sheriff
Henry, while replying courteously to the
complaints made by Mr. Supervisor, has
notified him that he cannot sec how it is
possible for him to delegate any of his
duties to the board of supervisors.
It is expected that in the trial of the
indicttfl jailor ami jail officials for assault
aud battery, some sensational develop
ments are likely to arise.
'f ho Tramp's Now Year.
The new year comes. Alasl
Why must the old year pass?
It knows me, scorns me; still
I have no heart, no will
To meet the new year; so
Why should not I, too, go
With the old year's dying breath
Into the night of death?
Old year, I loved you not;
The path is not forgot;
The thorns, the treacherous light
That oft deceived my sight.
The way was cold, old year,
And misty, wild and drear.
'Tis well the time is nigh
When you and I may die.
Sweet memories, old year,
Of love and song aud cheer
Will fondly live for you,
And songs ring through the new.
But I, unsung, shall pass
liven as withering grass,
And leave behind, old year,
A laugh, perchance a tear.

Urand Jury Indict Jailor Maby and
The Grand Jury of the November term
of Court after deliberating for over a
week, brought in 13 indictments and one
of the most vigorous reports that has
been presented. The reading of the re
port on Thursday mornlug created quite
a sensation, as it strongly censures the.
Board of Prison Inspectors for neglect c .
duty and finds four indictments against
Jailor Maby, Deputy "Jailor Knuhi, and.
Guards John Kaili and Keaumoko. The
County Attorney comes in for a share of
criticism as well. t
The text of the report is as follows:
To the Honorable
C. F. Parsons, Judge
of the Fourth Judicial Circuit.
Sir: The Grand Jury for the November
1905 Term of your Honorable Cv.urt beg
leave to report further as follows:
During the course of our duties it be
came necessary that inquiries be made
into the conduct of the Official in charge
of the prisoners at the llllo Jail, aud
words fail adequately to express the shock
experienced by members of this Grand
Jury as the acts of brutality weie reveal
ed as the investigation proceeded.
As n result of the Investigation we have
found true bills against Jailor J. II. Ma
by, Deputy Jailor Kauhi, Guards John
Kaili aud Keaumoko, on the charge of
Assault aud Battery.
The striking of prisoners by Jailor or
Guard which is iu vogue should not and
must not be allowed. Other and more
efficient means arc at the disposal of
those in charge of prisoners to maintain
As some of these acts of brutality were
not only witnessed but also paiticlpatcd
in by Jailor J. II. Maby, we consider that
the welfare of the Jail and the proper
maintenance of discipline on the part
of the guards as well as on the part of
the prisoners calls for his resignation.
We feel that the utter lack of control of
temper and the excessive brutality ex
hibited by Deputy Jailor Kauhi toward
the prisoners in his care warrants his in
stant dismissal, and we respectfully call
the attention of the Honorable High
ShetlfTto these cases and ask that ade
quate steps be taken toward remedying
It seems to be shameful that such a
condition of affairs should have existed
and the acts of brutality complained of
be of almost daily occurence without
having called for action from our Board
of Prison Inspectors. Prom the evidj
before us wc cannot but censure the
Board of gross neglect of duty, and'
recommend that they take imr.ic
stepV tbward Iht propel cxccikIo:
their duties as laid out in Act 41 of
last Legislature, relating to the appo '-1
Itlnt nnil fluffo nftfl Tlnnnl nf Prl n
Inspectors. We desire to call their pai-V;
ticular attention to that section of the
Act wherein they are required to inquire
into the management and conduct of the
prison. That the supervision of the dis
cipline aud government of prisons and
jails within their jurisdiction was one of
their duties, seems not to have entered
into their minds at all, and no rules or
regulations tending to improve the con
dition of the prisoners within the local
institution have been drawn by them.
That the present Board of Prison In
spectors have utterly failed to uuderstand
their duties seems self-evident, and the
present deplorable condition at the llllo
Jail is directly due to their failure to
properly supervise lhe Official conduct of
those placed in charge of the Jail.
Wc also desire to suggest to the'
Board of Prison Inspectors that more
stringent rules and regulations be proid
ed governing the question of provisions
from the Jail yard to the houses of the
Jailor aud Guards. This practice of feed
ing others at the expense of, the prison
ers is open to grave abuse and should be
We further lecommeud that a copy of
this report with such portions of the tes
timony in these cases as the Honorable
Court may see fit, be transmitted to the
We recommend that a copy of this re
port be sent to the High Sheriff and also
to the Chairman of the Hoard of Prison
Inspectors of this Judicial District.
It is the opinion of this Grand Jury
that had the cases brought before us,
been more skilfully handled by 0 '

During the course of our proceedings'
we believed it desirable to request of the
Honorable E. C. Peters, Attorney Gen

offenders to justice and made such re

surance that the government would not
be put to expense, the request was not
