Webster's dictionary, which Is a
pretty good authority, says a penitentiary
is "a house of correction in which
offcederc are confined for punishment
and reformation, and compelled to la

prison; a place for confinement for
etfnfr debt, while a prison is
defiwed k "a. building for the
or mtn custody of criminals, or
thoce accused ot crime, and others
committed by due process of law; a
In'his argument Mr. Hankey claimed
that-what is commonly kuown as the
Oahu prison was a penitentiary ana
that it could not in justice be callou
anything else. No doubt many peopit
were surprised at this broad assertion,
for It is the prison to which common
oifenders, such as drunks from the police
court, violators of the various regulations
and laws appertaining to uit
city of Honolulu are sentenced.

The old compiled laws of 18S4 provided
tnat "the minister of the interio.

and houses ot correction as may ut

Civil Coue ot the Republic granted tne
same power to the attorney general.
The rules governing prisoners at the
Oahu prison were prepared by jnt
board of prison inspectors, not jail in
pectors. And tho regulations printeu
for uie guidance of the guards call u
the Oahu prison. From this it is vcrj
evident that it is not a mere Jail.
But it is in these "Rules Governing
Prisoners" that tho character of
Oahu prison as a penitentiary stanaa
out. Ihey will be a revelation to man
people of the city and of the Territory.
They provide regulations as severe j
those of any penitentiary in the Unites
States. They provide for convict garb
for all inmates of the prison.

so bravely defended a child at he
iril of his life. We saw that we wrc
jlng followed and decided to leave, is
d might as well be killed on tha rtwi

at the south gate.
We left one of our five carts for the

as' very angry with the carters an 1
ild he would have them beaten if ttu

Ith us. After he left us men w;.h
nlves and swords stopped us agmn
