tho'Shoriffs to tho Marshal. Ah
only tho biennial report of tho
Attorney General is printed for
presentation to the Legislature,
tho readers of the Bulletin have
in tho following hiimmnry the
chief matters of publics interest,
eventuating tho first half of tho
period, thiitcen mouths in ad
vance. TflE MARSHAL.
Marshal A. M. brown reports
many important changes in tho
year. "S. N. W lcox, who for
twenty years had so well aud
faithfully performed the duties of
Sheiitl of Kauai, resigned tho
eamo Soptombor 30." Deputy
Sheriff L. M. Baldwin of Maui
succeeded him, but after one
month was tiuusforrpd to tho
Sheriffship of Maui. F. W. Car
ter, who had been successively
Deputy Slieriirof Maui and Dis
trict Miipistrnto of Wiiilukn, wus
on November 10 appointed as
Shei iff of Kuuuir
Tho acaucy in Maui had been
ciiuscd by tho transfer of Sheriff
L. A. Andiews to tho shrievalty of
Hawaii, upon tho appointment of
E. G. Hitchcock to bo Circuit
Judge," ho having been Sheriff
from his ietiguutiou us Marshal,
August 1, 1893, to October 30, 1890.
Mr. Baldwin's succession of Mr.
Andrews has been already noted.
Owing to tho Bhoit timo these
sheriffs have been in ollico their
reports are briof.
"Dutiug tho pnst year," tho
Marshal continues, "the doputy
shciiffs aud polico officers of all
tho districts have boon uniformed
and now present as otliccrliko an
appearance as do those of Hono
lulu. Uniforms of tho polico
officers of tho outer districts con
sist of a dark bluo sergo suit, coat
buttoning full up in the neck,
with five silver regulation police
buttons, this uniform being in
tended for ueo in attending upon
court and other occasions of im
poitnnce. "Besides this uniform, each
officer has two suits made in tho
smo stylo but of roy doniin.
This thoy aro required to wear
whenever upon duty vrhon tho
bluo suit is not worn. . With thoso
unifoims is worn a brown folt
slouch hat, similar to tho United
States cavalry compaignio hat,
with silver cord around the same.
" Tho idoa I havo tried to im
press upon tho sheriffs and depu
ties is that polico oflioers when
ovor upon duty must bo thorough
ly uniformed, mid already a
maiked improvomontis liotieoablo
throughout tho districts.
"Tho doputy sheriff uniform
consists of a Mark blue double
breasted coat, with gilt polico
buttons, gilt hat cord and wreath.
With tho rapidly increasing
Asiatic population, it has becomo
most important that oflioors of tho
poaco bo thus uniformed in order
that thoy may bo rocognized and
respected by this class of pooplo.
"Tho polico force of Honolulu
is of tho sumo relative strength it
was a year ago. Tho entire forco
is drilled weekly in military
tactics under tho command of
Robert Parker, sonior captain of
polico, in which drill tho guards
of Oahn Prison also take part.
"Tho mountod polico, number
ing twenty men and throo officers,
are drilled weekly iu cavalry
tactics. Target shooting is also
practised weekly by both foot and
mounted polico. Tho rosult of

These ate well olli ered and

each oompnny being up t tho
limit, and much interest taken by
soveral of such companies
iu target shooting. To en
courage and promote Hhooting at
the butts 1 have arranged a norths
of medals to bo conipoted for by
tho members of thoso different
"Tho Mounted Reserve, ouo of
the eight companies of IIouolulu'o
Citzons' Guaid, is now thorough

ed, making a most creditablo sup
port to the mounted polico upon
occasions of drills and parades.
"Tho Citizens' Guard on Ha
waii, Kauai and Maui aro in
good Bhape and occasionally show
much iuteiest in tho mutter of
target shooting, for which they
aro supplied with ammunition
from this office.
"Tho detective, work of thi3 do
partment hna boon most succctu
fully carried on for tho most part
under the efiieiont management of
David Kaapu. Burglaiifs and
larcenies aro not of fioquent oo
currouce, and when occurring in
most instauces tho offendeis havo
been apprehended and brought to
"Arrests and trials for viola -latious
of tho gambling, opium and
liquor laws constitute tho bulk of
tho work in Honolulu.
"Tho prosecutions in tho Dis
triet Court of Honolulu have for
tho most patt been conducted My

out tho islands are, for tho most

exception of a fow, upon whioh
improvements are shortly to bo
"Tho Ouhu Prison, under the
able nmuiigemeut of Jus. A. Low,
jailor, lotoius its loputatiou for
cleanliness and discipline."
In conclusion Marshal Brown
bays: "I tiust and liavo every
reason to believe that tho coming
yoir v. ill Bliow as satisfactory
work performed by tho police as
has the pact, and that my report
at tho ond of 1897 will bIiow to
you as much successful work done
by the polico during tho biennial
Jailor Low of Oahu Prison
takes pleasure, at tho outsot of his
report, in informing tho Marshal
that, boyond tho escapo of ouo
prisoner, nothing of consequence
lias transpired that has caused
any serious apprehension.
"Tho year opened up with tho
conditional pardon of all the re
maining political prisoners, and
until tho 23rd of February the
daily populace was rnthor low,
there being at that timo but 135
prisoners, 79 for criminal offenses,
37 for misdemeanor offenses, and
19 committed awaiting trial. Sinco
then and for tho past uix or sovon
mouths tho avorago has boon
much greater, reaching on Nov
otnbor 18, 1895, 192 prisoners of
which 100 were for criminal
offonses, 82 for misdemeanor
offences, and 10 conimittod await
Mr. Low roports certain ropaiis
and improvements in progress,
saying: "The prison premises

cleanliness and when tho woik in

condition of the place will bo im

and who appeals to havo no fear

Tho Jailor concludes with a re

SIIEMFF OF KAUAI.
F. W. Carter, Sheriff of Kauai,
upon arrival on the island iu Nov
ember found in Lihuo district
Doputy Sheriff Conoy and fivo
officers. Doputy Coney is in his
estimation a capablo officer, Ho
has charge of both Lihuo and Kn
waihau, an arrangement thut has
worked woll. The Sheriff is pleas
ed with tho officers under Conoy.
The buildings woro not in good
condition but the Sheriff is having
them inado strong and present
able. J. S. Hi pa, a Hawaiian, is dep
uty for Koloa,having a Spanish aud
two Hawaiian ollicers. Theso men
do thoir duty promptly and aro
good officers, and tlio deputy i a
bright, energetic mnn. Tho jail
is in good condition, but tho dis
tiict courthouse is boyond ropair.
'The Waimua district, with Ed
vin Omsted as deputy and with
six polico officers, is woll taken
can- of, the deputy boinu capable
and energetic and tho ollicers well
uliohon. Buildings in this district
are iu good condition."
Under Deputy Coney, for tho
Kawailinu district noted as joined
to Lihuo, aro Captain Dins and
three oflicors. Tho captain had
served as an officer at Wailuku
and captain at Lahaina, Maui.
Kawuihau was formerly tho homo
of largo gambling games, but tho
Shnriff is pleased to report that
tho closing month of tho year has
seen tliotn outiroly stopped. The
courthouso needs repairs.
" L'lio district of Ilan-doi is very
much improved and t liopo will
soon bo in lino with tho others,"
says Shoriff Carter. "It is tho
most distant and naturally has
gotten less attention, but it is my
intention to visit there fiequently
and do more for it. D.-puty She
riff" Kukina, n native Hawaiian, is
well along in ears but is a good
prosecutor. Ho has three ollicers
under him. Theso inon will bo
good officers with sonio littlo at
tention paid to them. Tho court
houso is iu ned of repairs ami
painfull;, nnd needs a new fence."
Tho Sheriff Hiuce his arrival has
aimed to improve the forco iu tho
matter of attention lo duty, court
esy, etc., nnd is much pleased with
the nMilt. Ho concludes his ro
port as follows:
"Our work has consisted largo
ly of breaking up gambling gaiuos
and probficuting larcony cases.
Tho latter havo beon numerous
but iu ovory case reported lo tho
polico the offender has been found
anil speedily brought to justice
Some of theso cases havo boon
knotty ones and reflect much cro
dit upon tho polico for tho way
they havo beeu proceeded with.
