The Legislature Is likely to hear
from the Inhering man If some pro
plon lg not made In order that public
work may be carried forward without
.Iiulge Estce's charge to the Orand
Jury Is one of the nblest exposition of
American, law cer Riven In this Ter
ritory. It Is a document that should
bo lend by eery citizen.
EDUCATING YOUTH ABROAD.
The bill to provide for nnd regulate
the education of Hawaiian out!is
abroad contains In xfctlon 4 the fol
low Ing regulation:
"The Secretary of the Territory with
the Hoard of Education are hereby di
rected to send the youths only to he
taught In tho following occupations:
Tlt Tho Legal Profession."
"Second The Medical Profession."
"Third Surveying and Civil Engin
eering." "Fourth The Art of Teach
ing." The measure as a whole Is quite con
trary to tho spirit of American Institu
tions. It carries out the old paternal
Idea of Hawaii's mom recent form of
government and when the Secretary Is
called to select candidates from among
"poor" young men whom the measure
U meant to assist. It U likely that
whateer Interpretation ho gives tho
term "poor," will certainly gle rise
to considerable III will. The Ilulletln
bcllees the Territory and Its people
would derive gt enter benefits If tho
same nniount of thought and money
were devoted to lalsltig the standards
of our own educational Institutions.
At all ecnts tho measure should not
pass In such form as to confine tho
youth of Hawaii to any particular line
Haw-all has lawyer galore and rop
rcscntathcB of ihe medical profeslon
on every other torner Surveying and.
civil t-nglneerlng nnd the nrt of teach
ing are the only lines of study In which
tho youth would not bo subject to tho
sharpest possible competition after his
graduation and return homo to go Into
business tor himself.
And what of tho courso In agricul
tural chemistry that Is a compulsory
department of every State university of
tho Mainland? Hawaii Is preeminently
an agricultural country. The nation
gives sulllclent Importance to this
bianch of study to especially endow
colleges of Agriculture nnd Mechanic
Arts, from which hnve developed tha
State Unhereltlcs. Our own public nnd
private schools have added special In
struction In agriculture to the curricu
lum. Yet tho outh going abroad for
study Is by this measure as originally
offered, excluded from taking n course

cnl laboratory of any of tho sugar plan
tntlons or will enable him to mako a

This measure as flnnlly passed ought
to bo free from any direction whatever
of tho courso of study any of Its bene
ficiaries should pursue. It the young

month or by both said punishments In
tho discretion of tho Court."
It appears from tho recent offlcla
report of tho Territorial Ornnd Jurj.
published In the Commercial Adver
tlsei for March 6. 1901. that ther were
then 113 female' prostitutes !n Iwllcl,
U of whom woro rrci.di women, all
tho rest belng-Japancie, not one Ha
waiian or American among them. Nou
That there arc 225 'comii In Iwllel,
each room renting for f;om $12 to $13
n month, nnd one man. a Mr, Masuda, a
Japanese, paid to tho ownet of tho
property n bonus of $9,000 to control It,
and ho does control It It Is thus a
mere money making Institution, but Its
existence la all tho nioio dangerous to
society. It Is safo to say that thero In
not another town of inuoo Inhab'tatits
In Amerlcn, where thco nro congregat
ed In one place and protected by public
ciniccrfi 113 lewd women mow 191)
openly and publicly plying their call
ing as prostitutes. It Is not necessary
to Inquire how this cuing evil was
first started. It Is iwbiiiii'mI tha. tho
public cilllcers who gave It I't" sanction
of their approval, thought 'hey wire
doing right; but It Is our duty to re
move) the ovll, because ith oxlstencu If
Illegal ami Inimical, Tim mere point
ing nut tho mistakes ct those who
t'icateil It will not nlouo do that.
It seems past belief that In this sovill
community, whero thoio nro bo m.iiiv
puiu mm religious people, thero should
be found any number of persons, who
think that prostitution censes to be an
evil ,when It becomes public, ,or when
sanctioned by public officers, or that
official recognition of this social of
fense docs away with Its danger to
society, or that authorized houses of
prostitution Is any mors protection to
good people, than would the creation
of dens of thieves be a Hccurlty against
stenllne. It seems to bo an admitted
fact that the presence of criminals in
creases crime, nnd that all forma of
public offenses should ho eradicated by
the punishment of ihe criminals.
Every crlmo which goo unpunished Is
dangerous to" tho well being of the peo
ple, and any crime like that of Iwllel
Is an attack upon tho purity of the
home. Thero should be no dcbateable
ground about such a rlaco as Iwllel.
When public prostitution Is maintnlned
by the public ns It Is at Iwllcl for Ihe
money thero Is In It, It towers tho stan
dard of our home 1f, fluraces the
fair name of our Territory, nnd to soma
extent It makes every citizen a party to
the wrong done.
Gentlemen of tho Grand Jury! Tho
official records of tho Uoird of Health
of the Territory of Hawaii, show that
during tho p.ist year not less than
forty of the one hundred nnd forty
threo women formerly at Iwllel became
pregnant while there. Some children
have been born to them and hnvc al
ready become objects of charity. Oth
ers are not yet born. Indeed the story
of Iwllel Is too disgusting to repeat.
It will thus be obeencd that tho his
tory of affairs at lwll! conclusively
shows that that Institution Is not only
nn nttnek upon the lavs of the United
States, but upon the morals of the com
munity, and It Is a most painful at
tack upon the honor of American citi
zenship, here, by flooding this Terri
tory with Ul-begotten children, con
ceived, If not born In a place of prosti
tution, whl'h of necessity must be a
breeder of criminals.
In any phase of tho matter. Iwllcl Is
a school for crime. Over one-fourth of
the women there have children, born
before or within this ear; most of
them are now Infants, and the off
spring of Iwllel associations. Practi
cally all tho .lapancs" women, nnd
most of them are Japanese, have mas
ters who receive the money they thus
cam. These masters, if not fathers,
husbands or brothers, are nurchnsers
of the women, and thny control them
as mu-h ns a livery mr.n controls his
horses. The oft lepeited statement
that If we close Iwllel It will scatter
those prostitutes over the town, is not
truo; they nre scattered now.
These women do not live nt Iwllel;
they only go there of evenings. They
seek theti homes up town nbout 10 or
11 o'clock at night. Somo have homes
of their own nnd live at home; some
nro servants In families, but all go back
to town. They aic In no sense isolat
ed; Iwllel Is not their home; they
neither eat or sleep there, and so tne
placo Is a greater disgrace to the com
munity, and n growing danger to civi
The truth is that Iwllel Is not. as Is
often stated, n resort for seamen It Is
rather a resort for the lowest order of
men Americans nnd Vslatlcs alike.
I Instruct you. gentlemen, to fully In
vestigate tho facts In this mntter, so
that we may know whether or not, .at
Iwllel, women nre sold for the purposes"
of prostitution. You will also find out
who claims to own then, and to whom
the proceeds of their v"e practices are
paid. What men arc nc;efory to these
crimes; who manages the place and
collects the lents for tne rooms; nnd
tho nanus of all who receive the
spoils; and If tho sen Undo of these
poor women exists for this or nny other
purpose; and In a word, If they are
held to any form of subjection by their
pretended owners. You will subpoena
and examine such witnesses ns the Dis
trict Attorney, or others shall point
ou, so that the whole truth may be
It Is duo to tho good people of these
Islands that these shameful proceed
ings be stopped. Two Territorial
Gnnd Juries have given the broadest
publicity to the situation at Iwllel
without affording nny remedy. This
duty, Gentlemen of the Grand Jury,
now devolves upon you, and I direct
you that In this civilized Christian
community, the citizens of the United
States do not recognize public prosti

tution as a NECESSAHY EVIL but
rather as a PU13L10 CltlME, which is
a crlmo against decency as well as
against law, and that all publlo offi
cers who encourage or'defcnd prostitu
tion, cither In this or1 any other form,
are guilty of a wrong, tor 'which there
can bo no palliation.
Tho question for you first to con
sider Is whether or not any of these
women are restrained of their liberty.
This 1 direct you to most thoroughly
in estimate, and It it bo true, as
charged, you will at onco proceed ac
cording to law, against all persons who
arc prlnlcpals fcr accessories to tho en
slavement of these persons.
Second 1 chnrgo youjo cause tho In
dictment of alt persons whom you find
guilty of adultery or fornication In this
public resort; nnd I charge you nlso,
Gentlemen of tho Grand Jury, that In
the performance of these duties, you
can call upon tho United States Dis
trict Attorney who will aid you.
You have nothing to do with tho
laws of tho Territory dt Hawaii. You
are officers of tho United States and
ns such deal alone with the offenBea
against the United States laws, or
which are made puVlle offenses by tho
laws of the United States.
You should not Indict anyono unless
there Is a probable cause of his guilt
and a reasonable chance for his convic
tion. You represent In part, that public Jus
tlco which Is administered In this Ter
ritory by tho officers of the United
States, nnd you should not forget that
all men aro presumed to be Innocent
until proed guilty; but the guilt of a
party moy be mado to appear by cir
cumstances; In fact the offenses refer
red to can only bo proven by circum
stances. Ueforo you close .your labors you
must make n report to this Court of
what you have done, and embody
therein nny recommendations you wish
to suggest. You will select your secre
tary from your number.
I appoint W. C. Weednn ono of your
number as your foreman who has full
power to administer oaths.
