On aNew Point
Late yesterday afternoon, the Jury la
the Insurance case of Choy Look See
vs. Royal Insurance Company returned
a verdict for the plaintiff for the face
of his policy, $1000 and Interest at C
per cent and costs. This was a test
case growing out of the great China
town nro of January 20, ,1900. An
exemption clause In tho policy made It
void In cases of lire created by order
of civil authorities. During the plague,
the. Board of Health gave an order to
Mini all wooden houses within the
bounds of Nuuanu, Kukul, River and
Beretania streets. A sudden coming of
strong wind drove the flro beyond theso
limits. The claim of the plaintiffs was
that, It not being the intention of the
civil authorities to burn bis premises,
tho exemption clause did not apply
nd that tho real proximate cause of
the loss was the cbango of wind.
Magoon & Thompson bandied the
case for plaintiff and Robertson &
Wilder for defendant.

The Grand Jury for the Second Cir
cuit In Its report to Judgo Kalua re
ports a state of affairs In the pollco de
partment of Lahalna that Is Interesting
tt say the least. Tho report as glcn
by tho Maul News, Is as follows:
The Grand Jury has given consider
able time, attention and Investigation
to the Illicit sale of spirituous llqours,
more especially In the District of La
halna. From the evidence brought before ui
wo have no doubt tint there has been

Dl..lr, of Lahalua, l"'t owing to the
reticence of witnesses, and convenient
lapso of memory nnd other causes, we
were unnuic 10 Dnng uut 1 Indictment
for Illicit liquor selling, viz., against
G, O. Scong, a Chinese store keeper of
Lnhalna. And this Grand Jury has
reason to bcltevn that their action In
the matter enabled tho Government
officials to make an extensive seizure
of liquor In O. O. Scour's Btore.
Your Grand Jury would respectfully
call your honorable Court's attention'
to an evasion, if not a breach of the
law, by ths wholesale liquor bouse of
Macfarlane & Co. of Wulluku. From
the evidence of Mr. Scott, manager of
Macfarlane & Co., In Walluku, Mr.l
jonn itlcuardson nas been appointed by
Macfarlane & Co., what they call their
distributing agent lit Lahalna. From
this tnmit AvtHnnpn wj find thnt Mr
THMinr.tann tins linnn in tia linM, ef I
getting several small orders for liquors Tl' United States cruiser Phlladel
from parties In Lahalna, of two or PMa "rived from San Francisco this
three bottles each. These orders were0111!! a"0'- " trip or 7 days and
made up Into cases of one dozen bot
tles and sent to Mr. Richardson. The
wholo case was charged to Mr. Rich
ardson and ho paid tho wholo bill. Mr,
Richardson distributed the bottles In
email quantities and collected the mon.
cy. This In tho opinion of tho Grand
Jury, Is a very reprehensible, practice
and Is a violation of tbo law.
The Grand Jury wero very sorry that
they wero unable to get any direct
ivlillnio In u'flrrnnt tlmni In nrnRfrnHniy'
an Indictment, but they havo no doubt I, The company will havo to stand the
that thcro has been an Infraction of tho I0" ,of tho ""S1-- J0 damaged cargo
law. There is n very largo amount of mf, ,,,cc" cnt to 0,,hl' mI to " re
liquor taken from Walluku to Lahalna! bollC( so that ns much of It as possible
every week and there Is no doubt that
it is for an Illegal purpose.
Your Grand Jury regrets to havo to
pass a vote of censuro on tho Police
Department of Lahalna. It Is very evi
dent to this Grand Jury that tho police
have been very slack In their duties,
and It would appear as though thero
was a collusion between tho Illicit
liquor sellers and tho Pollco Depart
ment of lahalna.
Your Grand Jury was extremely sor
ry of tho way in which the captain of
police, Moko Kauhaabaa, gavo his evi
dence and we nro under tho Impression
that this officer has not told tho truth,
nor has he given all tho Information In
his possession. The only officer In La
halna who has mado any attempt to
make any arrests for the Illicit selling
of liquor Is Mr. Illalsdcll.
As has been said before, owing to
the reticence of wltnaspes, we have
been unablo to get any direct evidence
to warrant more than one indictment.
namely, against O. G. Scong. But wo
think that with a more efficient police
force, the traffic could bo lessened con
siderably, If not broken up entirely.
Tho matter of subsidizing tho deputy
snerirr ot Manama by the Pioneer Mill
Co. of the same district was brought
to tho attention ot your Grand Jury.
The cvldenco shows that tho deputy
sheriff, Mr, Llndsey, receives a month
ly salary of 125 from the Pioneer Mill
Co. Tho manager, Mr. Barckhausen,
states that this Is to pay tho pollco
officers for taking up any estray found
In tho cane. It la the opinion of tho
Grand Jury that this It, not a part of
the 'pollco department's, duties, viz., to
tako up estrays for private parties'; and
tho fact that a pollco officer receives a
subsidy from a private parly would be
apt to bias his Judgment In any case
where such party might bo concerned.
Tho condition of licensed hacks In
Walluku was brought to our attention.
From tho evidence brought beforo us.
thero Is no doubt that there aro licens
ed hacks In tho District of Walluku
that aro dangerous to public safety,
and we respectfully call tho attention
of tho government officials to this mat
ter. In tho matter of J, E. Kcklpl, against
whom thceo was a complaint laid for
obtaining a deed from a native named
R. Mia and his wlfo Kahopewal under
false pretenses. Wo have mado quite
an exhaustive Investigation, and find
that thero has been 11 great fraud per
petrated by this J. K. Kcklpl, by his
working on tho religious feelings or
fanaticism of theso two natives. Wo
regret exceedingly that on consultation
with tho Deputy Attorney General, to
find that there Is no statute. In tho
Hawaiian laws which will permit us to
bring in an Indictment against J, E,
Keklpl. In connection with this caso,
M, P. Walwalole docs not appear to
havo acted In n thoroughly upright and
conscientious manner In his capacity
as a notary public. It would appear
from tho ovldenco proluced that there
was mora nr less of a conspiracy be
tween Mr, Walunlolo ard Mr. Kcklpl to
obtain tho signatures of Mia and his
wife to this deed, when, from Walwal
ole's own evidence, he. (Walwalole)
was aware of the fact that Mia and his
wife signed the deed under the Im
pression that they were signing a
We would further report that some
