cisco, to catch the steamer Coptic for Honolulu, a dispatch to Gov
ernor Sanford U. Dole, requesting him to come to Washington nt his

motion, but later appeared to hao changed his mind. Tho situation
In Hawaii Is so complicated Hint the President wants the best light
obtainable on the subject. From tho latest Indications the President
will ta ekno radical steps In dealing with Island politics, and talk
of n clean sweep of executive and Judicial omctals there Is unwnr-
l anted . . ,

Judgo Gear shortly after 11 o'clock
suspended tho McCarthy trial to re
ceive tho final report of the Grand
Jury. Headed hy the foreman, tho"
Grand Jury died Into court. Foreman
Dcsky handed Judge Gear thc leport,
who handed It back with a request
that the foreman read It.
Through the kindness of the fore
man and Mr. Wise, cleiK of tho Grand
Jury, copies of tho report wero handed
to tho'press reportcis after the rend
ing. Judgo Gear, upon the conclusion of
tho reading, complimented tne Grand
Jury coidlnlly upon their work Not
withstanding that several of them
worn exceptionally busy men, not one
complaint had been received about tne
tnx upon their time. Their recommen
dations wcrp all good Kvery subject
recommended for investigation by tho
Court had been Investigated. Reports
of the Grand Jury were Kept on file
and nlnays available. Anvono nsplr
Ing to tho Legislature would find In
these reports a valuablo fund of sug
gest Ions respecting ncedcd'leglslatlon.
Judge Gear dwelt upon the recom
mendation for amendments to tho Pe
nal Code, which would glvo District
Magistrates Jurisdiction over petty of
fenses and thus relievo tho Grand
Jury and the Circuit v.ourt of an Im
mense lot of trouble nnd expense. Ono
department of thc court had. during
the present term, been exclusively en
gaged with trials of persons Indicted
for crimes of a degree that ought prop
erly to place them In the class of mis
I'ndcr tho present laws which wero
not adapted to the United States Con
stltutlon, a boy accused of stealing a
dollar or a chicken had to be sent be
fore the Grand Jury nnd If Indicted
come before the court tor trial. When
a boy wns convicted of such a minor
offense thc court did not like to send
him to tho penitentiary. In soma
cases of tho kind he hud suspended
sentence. This was not rlgnt; yet it
was duo to the state of thc laws. Even
tho Attorney General's Department did
not deslro to see boys sent to the pen
itentiary. Moreover, these small cases entailed
great expense. The Grand Jury cost
about $100 a day and Jury trials In
court about me same amount. It would
bo desirable, lor tuo amendment of
theso laws alone, that an extra session
of the Legislature should be held. If
the Governor bad the Interests of the
Territory at heart. It seemed to tho
Judge, he would call an extra session
ot the Legislature, .i for no other pur
pose than to have theso laws amended.

Tho working of Ihc Department is
highly commendable. Tho High Sher
iff called our attention to the exlstc-nco
of gambling In numerous places, cho
fa and pakaplo especially, but owing
to rulings In the courts against the
cmplovmcnt of paid Informers in their
piosccutlou, this duty of his depart
ment is greatly hindered.
Much Improvement in this service
could bo effected if sufficient funds
would bo appropriated by the Legisla
ture At the present time an efficient
detective force of two or three compe
tent men Is much needed.
Oahu Pilson The Investigation of
this establishment resulted very sat

concerning tho 111 management and

and cells, shelters, kitchen and the
dispensary aio kept In good sanitary
condition Tho food wan of good qual
ity Thc women's department vas found
to bo In as good Banltary condition as
the rest of tho departments.
This condition of tho pilson Is di
rectly due to the Immediate attcntlon
of the warden and his subordinates in
using every efforts to do everything
for tho safe-keeping and proper iaro
of tho prisoners.
Tirtlculnr attention Is called to the
1. The use of dry closets should be

Food There seems to be a great
Improvement over what was observed
a j ear ago. The food supply consists
of pol, beef, beans, salmon and limit,
alternated three times a week with
bananas, cabbage, sweet potatoes, tea,

and raised biscuits.
Medical Attendance No regular

sickness the superintendent colls for

Stocker, which Is Very complete anil
exhaustive, Is. in part, as follows
Water Suppl) The water suppl) of
tho company has been largely devel
oped during the past year by thc ex
tension of previous tunnels and tne
digging of new- ones. One thousand
eight hundred and sixty-nine feet of
tunnels havo been constructed to date
These tunnels all concentrate at one
point Into a main flume. Extension ot
the tunnels Is still going on.
Flumes The main fluma from the
water head to tho cane fields and
across the plantation to thc Volcano
road, has been completed. It meets
the Volcano road Just above thc so
called "Peck road," at about Eighteen
Miles, being a little over a mite above
Mountain View, approximately ten
miles abovo the mill.
From this main supply flume, two
flumes for carrying cane have bern
constructed longitudinally through tb
fields to the mill, and a third ono will
bo completed within a month. A
fourth will be constructed Immediate-
