HILO AND HONOLULU HARBOR IMPROVEMENTS
There will be a delay In the making of the survey for n breakwater at
Hilo. Lieutenant SlatterV, the army engineering officer in charge of
Federal government improvement work in these islands, will not go to
Hiio to make the preliminary survey ufitil April or Mny.
Lieutenant Slattery has received advices from the War Depirtment
notifying him of an increase in the allotment of money to defray the ex
penses of the survey. A thousand dollars was the amount originally
allowed him but this sum has been incr.ased to $1600. The indications
are that the survey will be favorable and that a recommendation for an
appropriation for tue construction of sucit improvement be made.
If the plans outlined by Lieutenaiit Slattery, United Seates Army En
gineer Corps, go through, Uncle Sara will spend more than one and
three-quarters millions of good American coin in and about Honolulu
just as fast as the money can be had.
The plans for the fortification of Pearl Harbor and Honolulu, which
have already been recommended by the Secretary of War to Congress
and which call for $715,000, are based on recommendations from the
local office of the War Department. Lieut. Slattery was able to report
that there "was now land available for the construction of heavy batteries
and on the strength of that encouraging state of affairs the Secretary of
War sent the item to Congress for the first time and Delegate Kuhio has
introduced a bill to cover the appropriation,
The fortifications that will first be"ijtt in will probably be 1 2-inch
batteries with a ten-mile range. They will be built in such a way that
when the guns are in they can all be trained on a single ship or fired at
different vessels. None of them will be visible from the sea, but will be
of the disappearing kind. There are no larger batteries in use in the
United States at present, the larger caliber having been found undesir
able for actual use.
The fortifications will doubtless be built in pairs, one of each kind at
Pearl Harbor and Honolulu. As Lieutenant Slattery stated yesterday,
neither the Pearl lochs nor the city of Honolulu is protected unless they
are both protected. They are inseparable parts of' the whole and as the
fortification of both places is of prime importance at once, the lieutenant
hopes to see the appropriation asked fortuadc.
But in addition to the fortifications'vhiih are national in their bearing,
the lieutenant wants a million for the Completion of the dredging of
Honolnlu harbor in addition to $100,000 more for three lighthouses, a
new set of range lights for Honolulu harbbf and a magnificent light
house with a "first order light" at Makapuupoint for the benefit of ves
sels coming from San Francisco. - .
The Circuit Courts of the Terr itoryA five power to naturalize,
holding of a -decision given by the jipeme Court this morning, with
Justice Hartwell dissenting. tTl$ 'VJ'V.VaVHUt' 'he rMirdcr
case of Morita Kaizo, appealed tom ivVtyi. the appeal having been on
the ground that the grand jury whic found the indictment was com
posed in part of persons naturalized only by Circuit Courts and there
fore were not citizens. The decision
the Territory, naturalized by Circuit Courts since annexation. The
opinion of the court says:
"Congress not having established within this Territory the ordinary
territorial courts, and having provided a system similar to that in the
several states, it follows that the jurisdiction to naturalize in this Terri
tory should be ana is tue same as in
having common law jurisdiction and
circuit courts is n court of record having common law jurisdiction and a
seal and clerk. That this was the intention of congress we have no
doubt, when it is considered that congress established in this Territory
a district court of the United States, the same as is established in every
state of the Union, and which has, of course, power to naturalize.
"The privilege of becoming an American citi?en is a great one, but
the number of courts with jurisdiction to naturalize should not be
limited unless congress expressly or by necessary intendment so provides
The tendency of congressional legislation on the subject has been to en
large rather than diminish the number of courts which could naturalize."
In concluding his concurring opinion, Chief Justice Frear says:
"Such jurisdiction has been exercised by the Circuit Courts ever since
the establishment of territorial government and probably the majority,
about a thousand of naturalizations, have taken place in those courts.
I believe the exercise of such jurisdiction by the Circuit Courts was be
gun on the suggestion of United States District Judge Estee, and more
recently an application to his successor, Judge Dole, for naturalization
by one whose naturalization by a Circuit Court had been questioned, was
Justice Hartwell dissents on the ground that the statutes clearly fail
to authorize naturalizations by Circuit Courts, and that such authority
can only be exercised when expressly
Politics at Bottom of Charges.
High Sheriff Wm. Henry, who came down from Honolulu last Wed
nesday to look into the charges preferred against Jailor Muby and other
officials of the Hilo jail, was seen by a Tribunb representative, and
summed up the accusation in a very few words. "Politics is behind the
whole thing," said Mr. Henry. "The Tribune's statement of the case
was in the main correct. While I do not desire to criticise the action of
the grand jury, which I believe was in perfect good faith, the political
phase of the case was not presented to that body. I understand Mr.
.Maby nor none of the prison guards were examined by the grand jury
and the indictments are based largely upon the evidence of- prisoners
now serving sentence in the Hilo jail."
'The testimony of such witnesses must necessarily be biased. It is
only natural that a man restrained of his liberty should have a grievance
against his legal keepers, and the guardians of the law. Those individ
uals who find lodgement in jail are usually the worst class of criminals
and are ready to register a kick against their imagined ill treatment. I
have found nothing during my investigation of the Hilo jail which has
led me to criticise its proper administration. The quality of the food is
first class, and the daily portion given to each man greater than is
allotted prisoners in Oahu prison. Weevils may have been discovered
in the hard bread, but in the tropics this is not an uncommon occurrence.
Discipline in the local jail, if anything, is too lax, and long term prison
ers are given more freedom of action
Honolulu jail. This, however, is a
of Jailor Maby, in whom I have perfect faith. So far as I am con
cerned, there will be no changes in the jail officers."

Evidence against the accused was very strong and Friday morning he
confessed to Deputy Sheriff Cox and later in fuller detail to other
