Judgo Robinson delivered his charge
to the grand Jury this morning. In
Mew of expositions 01 mo auiics. oi
grand Juries previously given by his
colleagues and widely published, ho did
not consider It either necessary or ex-
pcdlent to dwell at length on such
silblerta or neutral knowledge. He dC-
fined capital offentes and infamous
crimes, quoting autborltlpn for the
proposition that all crimes punishable
bj Imprisonment for more than one
l J ear are lu this Territory Infamous,
therefore requiring prosecutlou by In-
dlctment. Then he goes on to say:
"While admonishing ou to bo
thorough and efficient In the discharge
of jour duties, I charge you that the
present depleted condition of the Tcr-
rltorlal treasury, which Is a fact
doubtless known to each and all of ou,
Bhould urge you to be prompt and ex-
pedltlous In our Investigations and de-
liberations. The expense Incident to
each day's session of a giand Jury Is
considerable and each day unneces-
sarlly employed In Inquiring Into a
trlfllng offense alleged to havo been
lommltted or Into tho management of
u public institution against tho olll-
ceis or employes of which there has
been directed no charge or suspicion of
mismanagement Imposes a useless ex-
pense and an unnecessary financial bur-
den upon the taxpajtrs of this roun-
Whllo It was their privilege to In-
quire Into climes alleged to have been
committed, still It was not strictly their
duty. The same thing he charged re-
ganllng the management of public In-
fctltntiotis. General Instructions con-
Mltute the remainder of the charge. In
enjoining secrecy of proceedings.
Judge Robinson said: "It Is the
policy of the law that Inquiry on thn
j art of a grand Jury as to the guilt or
innocence pf a peison accused of crime
should bo secretly conducted. At tho
cummon iw a granu juror disclosing
evidence before the jury was made an
uccessory to the offense If a felony
other than treason, or If treason a prin
cipal,' The hours given were those of the
couit 10 a. ra. to 4 p. m., with a recess

The verdict In tho first case was
$105,000 and It was deemed excessive
by tne court, who for that reason
k'l tilted a new trial unless the defend
a.r would accept a diminished amount,
ramely, $75,000. This tho defendant
declined to do nnd tho second trial was
IhireTore had, resulting In tho verdict
of (102,523, as before stated. This
amount tho Court also believes to bo
oxiesslvo above the sum of (75,000, in
view of all the testimony In tho case
us it presented Itself to tho mind of tha
(Vtirt. And while It seems to be well
settled that under tho law tho court
cun again set this verdict aside and
giunt a new trial upon the same terras
as in tho former trial if In its discre
tion It sees fit to do so, yet the con
Li nsus of tho best Judgment ot the
cruris as found In tho decisions Is
l hat whero no rule of law has been vio

Maul ports with mall, passengers and
an assorted cargo, arrived at Maalaea.
to take on mall and passengers about
7:30 o'clock last evening. While It
was not raining at Maalaea when the
steamer touched there, there had lMn
a cloudburst up the mountains and the
stream was so swollen that many of the
intending passengers were unable to
get to the landing and were obliged to
abandon their trip to Honolulu.
The Mauna Loa sailed from Malaea
shortly after 9 o'clock last night. Fh
brought two or three pissmgers froai
that port, but nine were compelled to
remain behind on nccount of tho flood.
While attempting to cross thc swol
len Btrcam near the landing two hacks
were wrecked, 'being swept som dls
tanco down the stream, the horses nnd
drivers narrowly escaping drowning.
The stream, grown to a prodlgou Mm,
