Wr. would premise, before enter
ing upon this subject, Hint, we do
not speak with the voice of authoiity
or the sound of it Jlund-Ot'ua). but
have a great objection to seeing
blame, actual or implied, resting on
the wrong shoulders. We quote the
following from the P. C.A. of Wed
nesday's leading article i " . . .
We conclude thai the Hoard of
Education, .hitherto, ha been
alive to the wants of the rising gene
ration in this lyngdom, ....
and also ijt establishing a system of
manual labor (principally agricul
tural) as part of the daily exercises."
Probably no one is belter quali
lied to judge what the late Bonid of
Education did than they are them
selves. Their lleport to the last
Legislature says: "'The pupils of
about -I.") of the Common Schools,
under the direction of their teachers,
devote two of the live hours daily
schooling to agricultural labor.
These schools arc situated in locali
ties where suitable and remunerative
work can be obtained for the pupils ;
and it generally relieves their par
ents for the tax on them for school
books, and gives the pupils habits of
practical industry To
learn to work with the hand . . .
should at least be commended and
encouraged by the teachers." We
see no hint, even, in this, of a nygfe-n
of manual labor being established.
The the G. jV article goes on
to state: " We are equally well con
vinced that the ' manual labor ' part
has proved a failure," and to call on
an ollicer of the Hoard to rise and
explain why it is mi. That is to say,
our sapient contemporary first de
liberately cicatcs a statement and
then makes a charge concerning it
so as to put it on the shoulders of
an entirely innocent man. 1'crhnp.s,
however, our respected and esteemed
contemporary is thinking of the fail
ure of the Industrial Education sys
tem instituted at the llalcakala
Hoarding School, and what were the
" true causes of it. It may be thinking
that the story - so old that it can
now allege reasons, without fear of
H. Grieve, remanded from the oth.
His Honor Judgo Hickerton read
.the following decision : I have care
fully considered the special defense
made by defendant, "that, he should
bo acquitted notwithstanding the
conteuts of the alleged obscene
document, for the reason that he
had and has not now any knowledge
of tyi contents, and that he is ignor
ant of the Hawaiian language, and
that his. foreman and type-setters
did not inform him of there being
anything obscene or objectionable
in said document, and that ho mere
ly allowed his employee to print a
paper in the Hawaiian language at
the request of an employee of this
Hawaiian Government." J have ex
amined the authorities cited by the
defendant's Counsel and other au
thorities on libel cases, ami I cannot
Jintl that those authorities in libel
cases apply to a case of this nature.
In these cases it has been held that
ixi if defendant had no knowledge that

' ulao that if he had no knowledge of

""" o' ' , " , , '
jiauirc cau oe controlled ny mesu
l.uuthorities. The defendant is pro
prietor (or one of the proprietors)
of. n printing olllce, and personally
manages it. I think it would be n
dangerous thing for courlH to hold
that such a pewon should not ho
held lcsponsible for all matter that
passes through his pi idling presses,
or that ignorance of the language in
which it is written should exonerate
him. 1 feel it is my duty to hold
that it was and is the duty of defen
dant to make himself fully acquaint
ed with the nature of the contents
c f all matter to bu printed in his
olllce in whatsoever language it may
bo written. Jf this were not so the
responsibility might be shifted from
one to another, and this plea of
ignorance made in each case and no
ouo held icsponsiblc the responsi
bility must rest somewhere and in
this case must rest with the defen
dant. I therefore cannot acquit tins
defendant, on this defence.
The case will have to go on and
evidence be put in of the nature of
the contents of the alleged obscene
or immoral pamphlet.
AV. Auld, icnmndcd from the oth.
JMr. HussoU objected to this case
being called on till the other was de
cided. Over-ruled by the Court.
Mr. Castle proceeded with the pro
secution. After waitings and inter
niptions Hie. case was finally stint
ed. H. Grieve called aiid sworn:
deposed much the same as lias been
published before J. Auld, foreman
of the Gazette olliec: I recognize
this manuscript. My brother Wil
liam brought it to me one week be
fore the Coronation. There was no
manuscript for the title page. I
made that out of my head and went
to the case and set it up. (lie was
dismissed at this point and Mr. Pi
lipo was sworn, then he was rc-call-ed.)
My brother took the proof.
No title page was on the first proof.
The second one had a title page, but
without the Royal arms. He told me
to put them on' 1 said jou had bel
ter get permission, and refused to do
so without. Next morning he came
back and said, "Pitt it on and I will
take it up to the Palace" I did so,
and that afternoon he came back
and said all right, go a-head. John
Kau'.ahca was blanJing beside me
when the conversation look place.
He might or might not have heard
what we said. G. W. Pdipo was
then called. Mr. Castle here stated
that Mr. Pilipo had asked him to'cx
cusc him from being called on as a
witness after he had been asked to be
one, as he felt a delicacy about mak
ing such translations before the pub
lic lie therefore asked for the teti
timoiry to be taken before the
parlies to the case only. 1 1 is Honor
made an order for the public to with
draw, leaving only the parties, ollici
als, counsel, police, and .press ic
porters. C. II. Judd was then called
and sworn: W. Auld came to my
oflice (Chamberlain's) with a roll of
papers and said these were a list of
dances. I said I would have no
thing to do with it. T declined to
give my consent to putting on the
Royal arms. I did not think it was
right to put it on. This was before
the 1hinj had gone to print,
and afterwards Mr. .1. fT. Kawainui
brought what purported to bo the
same document to my olllce. He
said they were the same. Spoke
about getting lliein printed. Said
they would cost Sol) or SCO. Wanted
to know about gelling paid for
printing them. I said I would have
nothing to do with it. I sent him to
the Chairman of the Coronation
Committee as J had seen an item in
their list for hulas. Spoke about
putting the Royal Coat-of-anus on.
i refused. He went away, and after
he was gone I found he had left the
manuscript on an olllce table. I
sent it down to him immediately by
my messenger. I knew nothing fur
ther of it until 1 saw a pile of the
printed copies had been left in my
outer olllce. i wits, surprised to see
the Royal Anns on it. J don't
know whether Kawnniui came a a
printer or as si member of the Cor
onation Committee. I am a mem
ber of that Committee. I don't
know who distributed them. A num
ber of them are in my olllce now.
People called there and helped them
selves. There was no order to dis
liibute tliein given by me. Many,
especially foieigneis and men-of-war
olllcers, asked mo for a copy.
Cioss-examincd, Auld said, " How
about putting the Coal of Anns on."
J said " No." Levi Kahuna and
Mr. Purvis were present at the con
versation between llio and defendant
and also between me and Kawainui.
Others may have been there.
G. W. Pilipo, gave ovidunco as to
the- meaning of certain pluases
claimed by prosocution to bo ob
scene. After reading it a do.en times
1 still feel shocked, It is not a proper
document to put into hands of
school children, (in answer to .Mr.
Castle) If von biougliL it into my
family to ask them about it I would
knock you down, (in answer to tho
judge) larger ones amongst school
children would bo able to under
stand it. S. Aukai, yKnhumoku,
gave Kimilnr testimony. Knncpmt
an old man piobably 0 years of
ago, fctatod jjthat the liinguago was
old Hawaiian, doesn't know what
those lines (pointed out) mean.
Probably the tunii who made tho
melt, knows, tho listeueis wouldn't.
When I was young they called things
by their proper names, When I
went to school I found they had
some diffeicnt names for those
things. I have a daughter at Kn
waialiab. 1 do not propose to inter
fere with her education. I have
placed her in the hands of those
teachers, and 1 don't propose- to
divide tho responsibility ; (this was
in answer to whether he would al
low hi:- daughter to read such things)

Prosecution here rested. Mr. Rus
sell said that, he made no defense
hcie the importance of tho case is
such to his client, that he feels a jury
of his countrymen should decide it.
Ho has been unnecessarily assailed,
as it is a custom of the country. The
lime had also been loo short to col
lect and collate evidence. He there
fore left it for the Court to decide
Air. Castle regretted thai hu felt it
his duty to piosccutc Mr. Auld who
has been always and is a personal
friend. Would even pay his line
himself. Hut higher considerations
than friendship miso and it had
been clearly shown the pamphlet
was obscene. Thcrol'oi.c he wished
to have it clearly and definitely un
deistood that it is against thu law
to piint and publish thin kind of
liloiature. Any line would do this
even of ,"i cents. lie did not press
for impiisonment or n heavy sen
tence. Judgment in both cases will
be reudeied to dnv at !t a.m.
