Waiakea Mill, Ililo, the first set of
super healers, nn improvement in
vented by Hon. A. Young, manager
of the Honolulu Iron Works. JMr.
Young has been designing and ex
perimenting on this invention for the
past twelve months, and has ap
plied for patents for the sume in
twenty-two countries. Tins im
provement is expected to enable
those who use water on their trash
previous to their second crush, to
use it freely, inasmuch as it is sup
posed to bo capable of ovapoiating
with the trash alone, even for diffu
sion. The trial of this at Waiakea
will bo a full sized one. A new
smokostaek 100 x 5 is also being
madp for this mill.
A very interesting visit through
the works was brought to a close by
a peep into the otllce, where the
secretary, Mr. Atwatcr, desired to
impress upon our representative
that he was an agent to grant mar
riage licences, and had been for a
long time. The manager, Hon. A.
Young bad a few jokes to crack
after which our reporter took his

The annual meeting of the Hono

in the Library hull, tho President
Mr. Alex. J. Cartwriglit in the
chair. Thu minutes of the last
meeting were read nnd adopted.
The reports of the Secretary, Tiua
suier, Auditor and hall committee
weie read and accepted. Tho olll
ccrs and trustees for the ensuing
year were then balloted for with tho
following result: President, A. J.

crs. The entertainment committee
were requested on motion of Mr.
Justice bole, to devise means for
increasing the pecuniary resources
of the association. The following
Hall and Library Committee was
announced by tho President: Dr.
C. T. Rodgers, 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. Caktwuiout Esq., President
Library and Reading Room Asso
ciation. iSir: Tho following is a brief
summary of the work of the associa
tion for the last j'car, so far as the
same pertains to the jurisdiction of
tho 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 of this
association. The terms of the
transfer as set forth in the letter of
the Minister of the Interior under
date of January -1th, are as follows:
1st. The books to be catalogued
and a receipt given for all taken.
2d. The books to be returned to
the Government at any time it may
desire to re-establish a library, upon
the written request of the Minister
of the Interior, any loss to be made
good by the association.
3rd. All expenses of translcr and
cataloguing to be borne by tho as
sociation. 4lh. The books to be free to the
5th. No books which can in any
sense he called Ijooics ot reference
must be removed from the Library,
but must be retained there for re
At the suggestion of this commit
tee the Minister subsequentlj' added
a postscript to his letter to the ef
fect that the Association should not
be held responsible lor dcpiecialinu
of books from the wear and tear of
ordinary use, nor for any loss or
damage except such as might be
avoided by the exercise of ordinary
and reasonable care.
The number of volumes removed
from the Government building un
der this arrangement was nearly
fifteen hundred, exclusive ot a
valuable collection of bound files of
our local newspapers and periodi
cals. Some of the books were dup
plicates of works already in our
library, and ethers were obsolete,
dilapidated and for various reasons
practically worthless. The bulk of
the collection however was in good
order, and much of it of great in
terest and value. It is especially
rich in works pertaining to Hawaiian
and Polynesian affairs, early voy
ages and explorations, particularly
in the Pacific Ocean and kindred
subjects. Many of these are cai ly
editions, now become scarce and
costhy, and are a accompanied by
large atlases, books of plates, etc.
There is also a very valuable col
lection of works on natural history,
Many of these are copiously and
expensively illustrated by colored
plates, and nearly all the natural
history and scientific Avorks are sub
stantially and handsomely bound.
The books of voynges, explorations,
etc., arc also, as a rule, well bound
and in good condition. The removal
of tins mass of nooks, tuo sorting
out and arranging them in their new
homo, and the preparation of a com.
plete list to be signed by our own
officers and filed with tlte Govern
ment as a receipt, 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-five 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 tho generosity of Hon.
C. R, Bishop wo have received a
verj' valuable accession to our
libiary, viz.. : tho entire collection of
printed books and pamphlets be
longing to the late Judge Fornunder.
In addition to nearly two hundred
and fifty volumes from this source
which have been already catalogued
thcieis u considerable number of
books of which no disposition has
been Hindu as yet on account of
their bud condition ; also :i valuable
collection of pamphlets and publi
cations in paper covers. Mr.
Bishop's gift cannot be estimated as
to either its literary or pecuniary
PATTV rttJLtteMN WlKLY

value by the mere statement of the
number of olui:ies. The average
quality ot the books is high and
many of llieni arc expensive edi
tions. Outside the Government collec
tion, of which we aie only tho custo
dians, tito accessions for the year eo
far as catalogued have been 777.
This is a smaller number than for
either of the lut two or three years,
but the -nveinge character of tho
books for the 1-ist year lias been
higher and their ecu proportionately
gieuter. The money icceivud from
tho Government under the appro
piialion of lH.stf has lieeu mostly ex
pended for works of permanent
value, and those, are expensive.
While diiecting our chief attention
to the building up of a collection of
permanent value, it lias seemed
necessary to consider I hi? wants of
tin? average current reader, and we
have accordingly added liom lime
to time u fair pioportion of the bet
ter class of iietion to the other books
on our 'diclves.
In addition to the accessions above
referred to there is now on hand a
considerable accumulation of uncata
logued material which will he at
tended to as tho time of the com
mittee may permit.
Owing to the pressure of other
duties upon the chairman of the
committee the wo:k on the card
catalogue has fallen considerably in
arrears but is now being rapidly
brought up to dale. The tards for
tho fiction department are all com
pleted and in place; those for the
other portions of the libraiy will
not be much longer delayed.
The number of books given out
in the circulating department shows
a decrease from the preceeding two
years. Although this is a source of
regret it is no inoie than might be
expected under the conditions of
general dopiession and diminished
foreign population which wo have
experienced. On the other hand
there is nn increase of ten per cent
in the number of now names ap
pearing on the roll, these being 88
for the year just ended against 80
for the year ending Sept. 30, 1887.
It might at first sight seem thai with
so many new immes appearing, our
membership would steadily increase.
Such homver is not the case. A
very large proportion of those sign
ing the roll aie temporary residents,
tourists, officers of war ships, and
townspeople who wi-.h to consult
sonic particular books or look up
some special topic. It is certain
that this institution does not receive
fiom the piofessedly intelligent and
cultivated portion of this community
tho support which it deserves.
Miss Helen Cbambeilain having

take a position us teacher in the
Piinnln u Preparatory School, Miss
Addio Peterson was appointed in
her place and performs the duties
pertaining to the olllce to the satis

believed with entire acceptance to
the patrons of the institution. Mr.

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

last evening, Chief Engineer Wilson
in the chair. The attendance was
rather smnli. The resignations of

CHURCH ASSOCIATION MEETING.
The regular meeting of the St.
Andrew's Church Association was
held last evening in the old Cathe
dral building with a verv good at
tendance. Capt. H. W." Mist, R.
N., read an interesting paper on
"Christian Warriors of the Eliza
bethian period." A brief discus
sion followed. A committee of four
was appointed to net up an enter
tainment during the month. At the
close of the mcctiug Mrs. II. W.
Mist invited tiie members to partake
of cake and lemonade. It is need
less to say that ample justice was
done the good things. Oct. 5.
There was not a very large at
tendance at the Debating Society
last evening, but nevertheless it was
an interesting meeting. The Vice
President, Mr. Alex. Robertson,
picsided. The subject utider con
sideration was, "Is an educational
franchise necessary to the success
of representative government?"
Messrs.Turrill and Hcineinanu open
ed the debate followed by several
members. At the next meeting the
subject will be, "Resolved, that a
republican is better than a monarch
ical government." Mr. John F.
Smith, affirmative, Mr. Antone
Vogel, negative. Oct. 5.
About five minutes before two
o'clock this afternoon, Mrs.

in a buggy with another lady, when
near Fort Street School, the horse
shied at a passing team and started
off at a gallop. The buggy was
turned over and both occupants
thrown out. The teachers and
scholars at Fort Street School heard
the noise and were soon on the spot
in a body rendering all assistance
possible. Mrs. Schwartz was pick
ed up and carried to her home on
Fort St., and there attended by Dr.
Day. She was badly shaken up
and bruised. The other lady was
not hurt. The buggy was considcr

papers were voted to Rev. S. Wui
waiole who was dismissed from the

of drunkenness in some districts
was touched upon at length. The
association expressed regret that a
law licensing the sale of beer should
have been passed by the reform
Legislature. Resolutions of re
Bpect for Rev. A. O. Forbes, late
corresponding Secictary of tho Ha
waiian Board were unanimously

A meeting of the Womans Board

Union Church, Mrs. II. Bingham,
tho President, in the chair. Mrs.
L. McCully read a very able an in
teresting paper on 'Womens Medi

THE PANEL OF JURORS.

gi:ni:uai. auc.ui:i i:koki:
im: fu .i. couirr.
In the Supreme Court this morn-
ling the challenge intei posed by the
Attorney-ijeneial against tne panel
of jurors for the October term was
argued before Chief Justice Judd.
Justices McCully, Preston, Bicker
ton, and Dole. Tlicro was a full at
tendance of members of the bar.
Attorney-General Ashford said
that he hud interposed a challenge
to the jury panel, the objection be
ing that that it had not been draw.i
by the officer designated by the sta
tute. By an Act passed August 21,
1888, by the Legislature, Chapter
37, section f says that certain duties
heretofore performed by the Gov
ernors of drawing jurois has been
transferred to the Chief Clerk of the
Supreme Court. The lUt of jurors
was not sicued by Mr. W. Foster,
Clerk of the Supreme Court, but by
Mr. Henry Smith, Deputy Cleik.
It is also signed by the Chief Jus
tice as Judge of a Com t of Kccord.
The Legislature, in passing this sia
ttite, imposed on a paiticular officer
the duty of getting a list of names.
This discretion used by that officer
would secure a jury of intelligence
to render an unbiased verdict. It
had been snid there was no Chief
Clerk. The Legislature put the
words "Chief Clerk" in the statute
willi some intent and it would he lor
the Court to inquire iuto it. In or
der for the jury to be accurately and
regularly drawn, it would be neces
sary for'tho words "Chief Clerk" to
be expunged from the statute. It
may be argued that any work of the
Chief Clerk could be "done bv his
deputy. He would not argue against
that. Tho word "Chiel" gives a
personal limitation and identifica
tion to that one person.
Mr. A. S. Dartwell said The
consequences of quashing the cnlbo
panel of jurors arc so serious, in
volving an entire failure of justice
for at least six months, as fur as
jury trials go, are so serious, lliat 1
do not think the Com t will take such
action if this is a matter of discre
tion with them. No ohjtction to
the personnel of the jury is now
made, whether on the giound of
prejudice, intciest or bias of
any kind. Such objections if
they exist can be made wl en
anv jury is drawn and
would be disiiuulillcd
I his iriegulantv, it
it be one, does no harm, us it is not
claimed that the deputy clerk who
drew this jury was not entirely fair
and impartial. Achallciigc tollie ar
ray for indifferency of tho Sheriff in
drawing the jury under the English
statute is not allowed. 'Ihe King

tion, it is in thu interests of justice
that Ihe panel be not quashed.
Mr. William Foster stated ho left
the country on July 3 1st before the
Act was passed.
Mr. W. O. Smith submitted thai
the jury had been drawn correctly
under 'the statute. The argument
of tho Attorney-General against
"Chief Cleik'' was fallacious ami
uuound. There wa no such of
ficer known as Chief Cleik.
