Large ' Crowd, at Court
House to Witness'
OUND AND TRIAL JURORS
OFFER ARRAY OF EXCUSES
Some of the Reasons Why Busjr
Men Wish to Avoid a
Vacation in the
At the opening of the August term of
court this morning the court room was
packed to the last square foot nnd the
corridor and stairways were thronged
with people, who were present1 as liti
gants, witnesses or-spectators. When
the bailiff rapped for order, the clerk
was Instructed to read the returns
made for both grand and trial Juries.
After the reading of the lists those
who felt that they had valid excuses
which would enable them to escape
Jiuy duty wore '.called upon. by Judge
lane stated that he Is the Consul at
Hawaii for Denmark and therefore
exempt from Jury service. The court
expressed regret at having so manda
tory excuse presented at the very out
set und excused the Juror.
! C. Abies walked to the bar of the
court and made a strong plea In sup'
port of the excuse ho offered, which
was that he had served on Juries more
tlinn hts time. He claimed that the
Jury lightning had been hitting blm for
the post twenty-one years with clock
like regularity and'that while he Is a
loyal American and a good citizen he
believed the honor of serving on a
Grand Jury should be passed around
Mr. Abies was a member of tho first
Territorial Grand Jury nnd served on
the trial Jury In tho Federal Court
hIiicc that time. Judge Qear declared
the fatality to be strong evidence of
Mr. Abies good Jury qualifications and
refined to excuse him.
.lames A. Low, manager of the Ho
nolulu plantation, naked to bo excused
because his time would be occupied in
the United States Federal Court as one
of the defendants In the Pearl Harbor
land condemnation suits. Judge Gear
t-nld that he would listen to the excuse
when the land case demanded Mr,
Low's piesence N. S. Sachs was ex-
cuBed because he had matured plans
some time ago to leave for an extended
trip to the Orient. August 1G.
This encouraged George Castle to lay
his vacation plans before the Court.
He said he had intended to leave to
morrow for tho other Islands on a
three weeks trip partly for business
but mostly for pleasure The Court
declined to excusa Mr. Castle.
Kred Peterson gravely said "I am a
notary, therefore would he pleased If
the Court would excuse me." "That Is
no legal excuse," said tno Court. "1
beg the Court's pardon," said Mr. Pe
terson, "I thought it was."
C. S. Crane was excused because A.
W. Pearson of the trial Jury who
works for the samo firm wanted to be
excused. The reasons offered by Pear
hnii were that all tho officers of the
Gazette Company are absent, with two
on the Juries, When a few details were
explained, the Court said, "Mr. Crane,
you nro excused."
Prince David Kawananakoa was ex
cused until next Monday in order to
allow htm to go to Hawaii to attend to
funeral of the late Mrs. Samuel Par
ker. Excuses from trial Jurors for tempor
ary absence were quite numerous. B.
1'. Dillingham Is on Hawaii on busi
ness, excused till Monday.. P, C. Jones
and Geo. K. Hentou were given two or
tluec days' leave. David Lawrence
and M. P. Robinson were excused for
the remainder of the week. ..
Neither Jury was Impanelled today
and all Jurors were excuse! until to
morrow morning at 10 o'clock.

In the first roll call a grand Juror. W.
S. Wond, was not present. At the
close of the examination, his name
was called again, meeting with no re
sponse. K. M. Deardsleo, drawn on tho trial
Jury, produced a letter from Dr. Cofer,
stating that certain Improvements, on
Quarantine Island would be greatly de
layed unless Mr," Beardslee, the con
tractor, was excused from Jury duty.
The excuse was granted.

RETURNS FROM HAWAII
PLEASES WITH PROSPECT
Great Opportunities Still Ahead for
Small Farmers' and More
Lands to be Open
Land Commissioner L S. Doyd was
at his desk in the land office this morn
ing for the tlrst time in threo weeks,
having returned yesterday from an ex
tensive tour of Inspection on tho Isl
and ot Hawaii.
"I am greatly pleased," said 'Mr.
Boyd to a bulletin reporter, "with the
condition In which I found the people
who hae taken up smull land hold
ings from the government. They are
prospering, nnd arc doing nil that could
lj required In the wiy of complying
with the conditions ot their agreement.
Borne have even undertaken to do too
much which Is a virtue rather than a
fault. Another thing which pleased me
fully as much, Is the opportunity
which exist for moro small farmers on
the Dig Island. (The field. Isl largo for
the future small settler. " Tht land
which will be opened for settlement is
even better than that alr'e'ad) taken
"There Is one serious drawback, to
tho development of these small settle
ments. Y refer, to tho" roads. -They
are In an .abominable condition. In
many places, the owners of these
email farms-haYe been unable to haul
lumber or'o'ther necessities to their
lands and if they raised big crops,
they could not be hauld away. There
are practically no roads to or udjaicnt
to the tracts opened up to the small
farmer. In the future my preliminary
step In opening new tracts will be to
open a road. In Hamakua there are
no highways worthy the name. The
sum of $12,000 was expended on the
road from Walmca to Hanoka, a dis
tance ot twelve miles. This road is,
however, well nigh Impassable. It Is
rough and utterly bum. Tho former
road engineer Is to blame for this con
dition, lie has done reasonably well
on the main highways bu has neglect
ed the by roads totally.
"Tho next tracts to be thrown open
to the small farmer are Olaa, Kanvlll.
Nanawale. Omao. Kehcnu und Knla-
pona. Applications arc In the oflke
now, covering the entire area which is
about 2000 acres. The allotments will
bo made between August 10 and Sep
tember 10. 'There nro unsurveyed
tracts In Hamakua and North Hllo. ag
gregating 3000 acres which will he
opened up as soon as possible."
Mr. Uoyd's special business to Ha
waii was In connection with the Ku
kau boundary case, remandcU back to
tho commissioner for fcettlement. Mr.
Doyd said: "So far as I nm concern
ed, the mutter will be settled out of
court. 1 talked with all parties und

Lihue Has Ice Factory
and Soda Water
AS WELL AS SOME
Dramatic Circle is Just-Now Doing
a Litt'e Stunt Will hi Ready ,
to Delight Public
Kauai is coming to tho front with
strides that will soon tcsult in the to
tal eclipse of Hllo. This Is particular
ly true of Lihue. What with an Ice
factory, a soda water factory and many
other smaller enterprises, this place
will soon become the envy of n great
many other places on the Islands with
opportunities every bit as good.
Just a short time ago, there was a
meeting of the stockholders of the Ice
works at which It was decided to in
crease the capital stock of the com
pany. All ot the new stock was sub
scribed for at the meeting by the ori
ginal stockholders. Tne plant Itself
will soon be enlarged and the output
will soon be large enough to supply
the whole Island ot Kauul.
A bakery was recently started In tho
town of Lihue and this place Is get
ting the patronnge- of tho people all
over the Island. All that now remains
to make a perfect town out of Lihue Is
for someone to start up a newspaper
and. to tell the truth, there nre some
enterprising citizens of the place who
are talking up a newspaper scheme
Lihue even has a dramatic club
which has already given a very
creditable performance nnd which now
has In contemplation a minstrel show
for some date about two months hence.
Practice has already begun nnd great
strides nre being maje. Prominent
among the performers will be Dlgby
Sliiggett ot this city who Is now a
member of the farce of lunas at Llhus
The dramatic club has already drawn
up plans for a social hall and the best
part of It all Is that tho club has I1S00
which Is to be spent toward tho erec
tion of the hall. At the last entertain
ment, $87 was clureil, all of which
goes to show that the Lihue people,
besides being loyal to homo Industry,
are fond of amusement.
Passengers who arrived from Kauat
in the W. G. Hall Sunday, state that
the long wharf the Cotton llros. havo
been working on for several months
past Is nearly completed. It runs about
a quarter of a mle out Into the water
and steamers from Honolulu can go di
rectly nlongsldc and take sugar from
tho Lihue and Ilannmaulu mills when
It Is completed. This will be u great
Improvement oer the old stato of af
fairs. Deputy Sherlir Halvorsen of Wnlmea
has resigned and his place has been
filled by W. A. Wright, a brother of
Treasurer Wright and a man who
knows Kauai like a book.
