To Betteu DcriNn and Declare, the ''Practice, in Trials by
Be. it Enacted by the Queen and-the Legislature of the Hawaiian
Section 1. Tho jury shall in all cases bo the exclusive
judges of tho facts iu suits tried before thom, and tho Judge
or Justice presiding at any jury trial (hereinafter named the
Court), shall in no case comment upon the character, quality,
strength, weakness or credibility of any evidence submitted,
or upon tho character, attitude, appearance, motive or relia
bility of any witness sworn in a cause. Provided, however,- "
that nothing herein shall bo construed to prohibit the Court
from charging the jury whether there is or is not evidence
(indicating tho evidence), tending to establish or to rebut any
specific fact involved in the cause, nor shall it bo construed
to prohibit the setting aside of a verdict rendered by such
jury, in a proper case, as being against tho weight of
evidence, and the granting of a new. trial therein.
Section 2. Unless the parties to the cause on trial either
in person, or through their attorneys, shall file therein, their -written
consent that the Court may charge the jury orally, it
shall bo the duty of the Court, except as provided in the
next succeeding Section, to reduce to writing and read its
charge to tho jury; and the manuscript of such charge,
signed by tho Court, shall be filed in the cause, and shall
constitute a part of the record- thereof. Whenever, and as
often as tho Court shall'depart from such duty, either party
to such suit shall be entitled, as a matter of right, to
demand and have granted a now trial' of such cause.
Section 3. In cases where an official stenographer is pre
sent, and taking notes of the trial proceedings, it shall not
be necessary for the Court to reduce its charge to writing,
but such charge may be orally given, and' noted by suoh
stenographer. It shall be tho duty of tho stenographer in
such cases to transcribe his notes of such charge within one
week thereafter, and to file tho same, duly certified in said
cause, and such transcript may thereafter be used and refer
red to in like manner as though the same had been written,
charged and filed by the Court, as provided in the last
preceding Section. Provided, however, that if the accuracy
of such transcript shall be disputed by either party, and a
protest against the acceptance of the part or parts thereof
which shall bo claimed to bo inaccurate shall be filed by
such part', it shall bo tho duty of any Apellate Court
before whom- such cause shall come for roviow (unless tho
parties thereto shall by written stipulation compose such
dispute), to first find and declare the true rendering of such
part of the charge of the lower Court as shall bo involved
in such dispute and protest.
Section 4. It shall bo the duty of the counsel fpr tho
respective parties to a cause, to furnish the Court with a
written memorandum of thoir request for the charging of
the jury upon tho points of law involved therein, and it shall
not be incumbent upon the Court, in caBOS whore tho parties
are so represented by counsel, to charge tho jury upon tho
law, unless thoroto so requested in writing. But in case
either party shall bo unrepresented by couusol, tho Court
shall charge tho jury on his behalf, and the Court may, of
its own motion, charge tho jury upon any point of law
involved in tho trial.
Section 5. Where requests for instructions are proaontod,
as hereinbefore provided, an argument thereon may be mado
by the resppctivo counsel, previous toi tho Court passing
thereon. Whenever instructions aro asked which tho Court
can not give, ho shall, in the margin thereof, write the word
"refused," and such instructions as tho Court approves, he
shall designate by writing in tho margin tho word "given."
It shall also bo competent for tho Court to rraodify an in
struction so requested, and to give it in its modified form,
but in such manner that it shall, distinctly appoar. what in
struction was given, and what refused, in whole or in part,
All written requests for instructions shall be filed in tho
cause, and shall form a part of tho record therein ; and tho
Court shall in no case orally qualify, modify or explain the
same to the jury.
Section 6. Upon tho trial by jury of any civil case except
in action for slaudpr, libel, criminal conversation, soduotion,
malicious arrest, malicious prosecution and false imprison
ment, tho Court by the consent of parties, instead of direct
ing tho jury to give a general vordiot, may direct tho jury to
answer any questions of fact stated to thom by tho Court for
that purpose, and in suoh caso tho jury shall answer such
questions, and shall not give any verdict, and on tho-findbg
of tho jury on tho questions which they answer, tho Court
shall outer tho verdict, and tho verdict so entered shall bo, as
effectual, and shall be open to tho same objections and modos
of attack (if moved against), as if tho same had boon the
verdict of tho jury.
Section 7. Iu tho challenging of jurors, tho following
order and scquonco shall bo observed, namely : tho plaintiff,
in civil actions, and tho Crown in criminal cases, shall first
challenge for cause, after which tho defendant or defendants
Bhall challenge for cause. After tlio challongos for cause, if
any, shall havo boon determined, the Grown or plaintiff (as
tho case may bo), and tho defendant, shall alternately state
thoir peremptory challenges, if any, tho Crown or plaintiff
beginning, and tho defendant ending. In caso there shall be
two or moro dofondants in any criminal case, they shall not
bo obliged' to join in any challonge, but thoy shall each bo
permitted to challenge, sopaiatoly, as many jurors as tho law
shall allow to any separate or solo defendant undor like
circumstances. Tho. order of procodenco of their challenges,
if not agreed upon by them, shall bo dotormincd by tho
Section 8. At tho closo of tho ovidenco (unless tho Court
shall direct a non-suit, or order a verdict for tho defendant),
tho respective parties, or thoir counsel, shall bo entitled to
sum up tho facts to the jury. In thoir addresses to the jury
they shall bo allowed, ample scope and latitude for argument
upon, and illustration of any and all facts involved in tho
causo, and of tho ovidenco tending to either prove or dis
prove tho same. Thoy shall not bo forbidden to argue tho
law of tho caso to the jury, but' they shall not assume to in
struct tho jury upon tho law, in such manner as to encroach
upon the function of the Court to so instruct tho jury.
Section 9. The Crown or plaintiff, as tho case may be,
shall be entitled to open tho caso to tho jury and to present
tho proofs. If tho defendant shall present any evidence, he,
or his counsel, shall first, after the close of tho evidence,
address the. jury upon tho facts, aftor which tho opposite
side shall be entitled to the closing argument upon the facts.
Section 10. This Act shall take effect from and after tho
time of its approval, and all laws and parts of laws in con
flict therewith are hereby ropealed.

THE APPROPRIATION BIIiL,VII.
Tho apparent Baring on tho Ha
waii, Mnui and Kauai police aro too
great, for on tlioo islands rospec
tivoly tho sums of .$3925.20, $4299.09
and $22,'3r.r)0 wore not spout out of
tho appropriations of last period.
Four itoms hich appeared in tho

Two claims $600, Expenses of Suits
(Gorornmont claim to lands), $1000,
Exponsos in aid of Chinoso Restric
tion Act, 500 a total of .$2100, do
not appoar this poriod. Thosojbeing

items, $10,660 or 37 percent from
Police of Oahu, $14,971.80 or 20 per
cent from Tolico of Hawaii, $11,
660.81 or 22 percent from Polico
of Maui, $2101.50 or 9 percent
from Polico of Kauai. Eon this re
duction will bo seriously cut down,
as tho appropriation for Prisons was
last poriod entirely spent and dobtB
incurred to tho amount of about
$7000 with a lower a erago of prison
ers for the first half of tho period
thau now has oxistod for tho past 8
mouths of this poriod, and a larger
appropriation will ha o to bo made
or ordors givon to reduce tho activity

tho institution full.
Thirty-two years ago tho total ap

then $8000 and fees to Dec. 31, 1887,
when it was reduced to $7000 and
foes and in 1888 to present time
$7000 without fees. Tho salary of
tho Deputy Marshal only appears
separately iu 1882 and 1881, when it
was $5000 and $6000 respectively.
Thirty years ago tho bliorills ol
Maui, Hawaii and Kauai received
respectively $.1000, $3000 and $1600,

woroat$4000, $1000 and $2000 re
spectively. Ton years ago at
$5000, $5000 and .$1000, at which thoy
stayed until 1888, when tho ShorifF of

as much within $8840 was appro
priated for pay of polico alono for
