THE JURY CHALLENGE.
The Attorney-General has inter
posed a challenge to the panel of
Jurors drawn for the October term
of Court. It is the first instance of
the kind that hub come before the
Supreme Com I of the Hawaiian
Islands, and is naturally looked
upon by the luuinbeis of the bar
and others :ib a Hinder of gicat iin
poi lance. The challenge was ar
gued befoie ihe lull Court this morn
ing, paitk'iilari of which appear in
our local coliiiinm. It is probable
the Court w ill deliver a decision on
Monday. Should it decide to sus
tain the challenge, no jury tiiuls
can be had until the April term, as
jurors, according to law are only
drawn in JIaich and September of
each year. II the challenge is not
sustained the work of the term will
be at once proceeded with.
Annual Meeting Election of Officers
and Trustees, Etc.
The annual meeting of the Hono
lulu Library and Reading Room As
sociation was held Friday evening,
iu the Library hall, the President
Mr. Alex. J. Cartwright in the
chair. The minutes of the last
meeting weie read and adopted.
The reports of the Secretary, Trea
siuer, Auditor and hall committee

year were then balloted for with the
following result: President, A. J.
Caitwriglit; Vice-President, Al. M.

William Foster, C. M. Hyde, S. 15.
Dole, AV. F. Allen, John Kiniiic
luth, II. C. Meyers and C. T. Rodg
ers. The entettainment committee
wore requested on motion ol Mr.
Justice Dole, to devise means for
increasiuir the pecuniary lcsourccs
of the association. The following
Hall and Library Committee was
announced by the President: Dr.
C. T. liodgers, Rev. C. M. Hyde,
D. D., Prof. M. M. Scott and Col.
W. F. Allen.
Following is the report of the
Hall and Library Committee:
A. J. CAinwuMiiiT Kq., President
Library and Reading Room Asso
ciation. tiir: The following is a brief
summary of the work of the associa
tion for the last year, so far as the
same pertains to the jurisdiction of
the Hall and Library Committee.
The most important matter which
has engaged the attention of the
committee has been the transfer of
the books composing the Govern
ment library to the custody ot this
association. The terms of the
transfer as set forth in the letter of
the Minister of the Interior under
date of Janunry '1th, arc as follows:
1st. The books to bo catalogued
and a receipt given for all taken.
2d. The books to bo returned to
the Government at any time it may
desire to rc-cslnblisha library, upon
the written request of the Minister
of the Interior, any loss to be made
good by the association.
ilrcl. All expenses of transfer and
cataloguing to be borne by the as
sociation. Ith. The books to be free to the
5lh. No books which can in any
fecusc be called books of reference
must be removed from tho Library,
but :nust be retained there for re
At the suggestion of this commit
tee the Miliibtcr subsequently added
a. postscript to his letter to the ef
fect that the Association should not
be held responsible lor depreciation
of books from the wear ami tear of
ordinary use, nor for any loss or
damage except such as might be
avoided by tho exercise of ordinary
iincl reasonable care.
The number ol volumes removed
from the Government building un
der this arrangement was nearly
fifteen hundred, exclusive of u
valuable collection of bound lilcs of
our local newspapers and periodi
cals. Some of the books were dup
licates of lyorks already in our
library, and others wcio obsolete,
dilapidated and for various i orisons
practically worthless. The bulk of
tho collection however was in good
order, and much of it of great in
terest and value. It 5 especially
rich in works pertaining to Hawaiian
and Polynesian affair1, early voy
ages and explorations, particularly
in tho Pacific Ocean and kindred
subjects. Many of these are eaily
editions, now become scarce and
costly, and ale a accompanied by
large atlases, book of plates, etc.
There is also a very valuable col
lection ot works on natural history,
Many of these are copiously and
expensively illustrated by colored
plates, nml nearly all the natural
history and scientific work1- arc sub
stantially and handsomely bound.
The books of voyages, explorations,
etc., aic nNo, as a rule, well bound
and in good condition. The rrmoval
of this mass ol books, the sorting
out and arranging them in their new
home, and the preparation of a com
plete list to be signed by our own
olllcers and lllcd with the Govern
ment as a leccipt, involved a very
large amount of work and consumed
a great deal of time. It being
found upon placing the books on
the shelves that they considerably
overrun the space which had been
calculated for and provided, two
hundred and twenty-live volumes
which could not be considered in
any sense as books of reference
were transferred to our general col
lection and embodied in the circulat
ing department. It is contemplated,
as time shall allow, to make some
further changes of the same kind.
Through the generosity of lion.
C. R. Bishop we have leccived a
veiy valuable accession to our
library, viz. : the entire collection of
printed books and pamphlets be
longing to the late Judge Fornander.
In addition to nearly two bundled
and fifty volumes from this source
which have been already catalogued
there is a considerable number of
books of which no disposition has
been made as yet on account of
their bad condition ; also a Kihmblu
collection of pamphlets and publi
cations in paper covers. Mr.
Bishop's gift cannot be estimated as
to cither its literary or pecuniary
value by the mere statement of the
number of volumes. The avcrago
quality of the books is high and
many of them aie expensive edi
tions. Outside the Government collec
tion, of which we aie only the custo
dians, the accessions for the year so
far as catalogued have been 777.
This is a smaller number than for
cither of the last two or three years,
but the average character of the
books for the last year has been
higher and their cost proportionately
greater. The money leccived fiom
the Government under the appro
priation of 1888 has been mostly ex
pended for works of permanent
value, and these aie expensive.
"While directing our chief attention
to the building up of a collection of
peiuianent miIuc, it has seemed
necessary to consider the wants of
the average current reader, and wtt
have accordingly added lrom time
to time a fair proportion of the bet
ter class of fiction to the other books
on our shelve.
In addition to the accessions above
referred to there is now on hand a
considerable accumulation of uncata-
logued material which will be at
tended to as the time of the com
mittee may permit.
Owing to the pressure of other
duties upon the chairman ol the
committee the work on the card
catalogue has fallen considerably in
arrears but is now being rapidly
brought up to date. The cards for
the fiction department aie all com
pleted and in place; those for the
other portions of the library will
not be much longer delayed.
The number of books given out
in the oil dilating department shows
a decrease from the proceeding two
years. Although this is a souice of
legrctitisno more than might be
expected under the conditions of
general depression and diminished
foreign population which we have
experienced. On the other hand
there is an increase of ten per cent
in the number of new names ap
pearing on the roll, these being 88
for the year just ended against 80
for the year ending Sept. SO, 1887.
It might at first sight seem that with
so many new names appearing, our
membership would steadily increase.
Such however is not the case. A
very large proportion of those sign
ing the roll are temporary residents,
tourists, officers of war ships, and
townspeople who wish to consult
some particular books or look up
some special topic. It is certain
that this institution does not receive
from the professedly intelligent and
cultivated portion of this community
the support which it deserves.
Miss Helen Chamberlain having
resigned the office of librarian to
take a position as teacher in the
Piinnhou Preparatory School, Miss
Addie Peterson was appointed in
her place and perforins the dutios
pertaining to the olllce to the satis
faction of the committee and it ifl
believed with entiie acceptance to
tho palions of the institution. Mr.
James Fullen still continues to per
form tho duties of janitor, as well
as such outside woik iu the way of
collecting, etc., as jiiny bo requited
The incoming of the Government
books and tho gtowth of the libiary
in other direcliojis having cieated
an Imperative need for additional
shelf accommodations, two sides of
tho front room, loimetly designated
as Uio parlor, have been filled up
A door having been cut from the
reading room to the parlor, and the
door between the latter room and
the entrance hall being kept locked,
all persons arc compelled to come
and go through tho reading loom,
and are thus in view of tho librarian
or other person iu charge.
The reading room is well kept up
and freely used, and the reference
department is evidently a great con
venience to many people.
The loss of books has, as In
former years, been very small, and
has been confined to a few volumes
of no great value and easily replaced
which have been lost through tho
