The Prosecution In tho strike

In his argument to tho Jury, pur
posely nnd deliberately left Mr.
I.lghtfoot nlono to deliver his Epcech

privilege those defendants enjoy of
doing so without adverse comment

I.lghtfoot had n field day, nnd ho cn-

Many men subscrlbo to Llght

occupied and held by plantation in

much of It was reckless, rant nnd
far from the truth Hut tho knock

far as they dared, their aid was giv

tho laws nnd rendering false ver

The Jury closed Its long nnd ardu
ous task In tho Conspiracy trial by
rendering n Btulwnrt nud truo verdict
This community from the proofs nd
dttccd, wns satisfied long ago that tho
defendants, beyond question, were
guilty. ' In fnct, they committed their
offense openly, defiantly nnd beforo
the cjes of nil men, nnd continued
their defiance to tho last, claiming Hint
what they had done they would con
tlnuo to do. While, therefore, the ver
diet was one that tho community had
n right to expect, and though tho Jury
did but their simple duly ns citizens
nnd under their oaths, yet there had
been so much evidence of nn under
current of nnlmus directed ngnlnst the
Prosecution, and from such unexpected
sources that It was feared by many
that till tho Jury would not hnvo In
dependence nnd clcnr-slghlediiess suf
ficient to looR tluough the beclouding
nnd tho befogging nnd to keep their
cyo upon tho real and truo Issues In
the case. And so It is that this day
tho citizens of this Territory feel n
glow of gratitude, good will nnd es
teem for tho good nnd truo men who
hnvo contributed under such great dif
ficulties so much to tho welfare, pcaco
nnd the truo progress of Honolulu and
of this Territory.'
Wo honor them nnd their names will
bo held In grateful remembrance, nnd
It will cnuro to their credit to tho end
of their days for lliey held thu keys to

Their verdict had cither to bo a con
firmation of the criminal disorder and
unrest that followed tho organization
of this racial society among tho Jnp-
nncso which meant Federal Interven
