In Tiew cf the recent charges made
agi&Kt tte military stationed here, the
action of the grand Jury in going out
of Its way to completely A clear the
good name of Uncle Sam's soldier on
i Oahu Is significant" In an important
table of figures given below, the Jury
shows exactly what: classes and na
tionalities have been chiefly respon&l
, ble for the violations of the laws dur
ing the last year. " J.
' "Dago reU' comes In for Its share of
the blame for the crime and violence
committed In this county. ; The grand
Jury suggests - that, as a' means of
counteracting the damage done by this
; wipe law providing that no wine less
than three year old, be Imported or
sold In this territory. y f
an this connection, and in dealing
with the class of crime for which "Da
go red" is mostly responsible, the
. grand; Jury . goes put of . It way to
praise the faithful men and .women of
, the missions who hsve been devoting
their, lives to the protection of young
girls. .i ?y i ! lJ--il'::.:
v Speaking of the condition found In
the "county jails, the dody commends
s the work that is being done by High
Sheriff Henry and Jailer Asch. It also
has a pat on the back for Sheriff Jan
i ett and ' urges .that , hi . hands be
strengthened - by- the 'increase In the
force of patrolmen he has at hi dis
posal. One of the suggestion .with
vrhlc& the report is filled Is that the
county assume, the burden of caring
and feeding the horses of the mounted
men, 'and commends the idea of the
county t owning the animal used by
the trooper, patrolmen outright.
Many pages of the report are filled
with statements of the . conditions
lound to exist in the schools and oth
er institutions of the county. The
jury urges the need of enlarging the
capacity of many of the schools, and
does , the same thing for the Insane
asylum, which, it ays is crowded.
Chief ; Thurston of the fire depart
ment comes in for a share of praise,
and the Jury recommends that the city
provide for the increased demands
made and to be msde upon the department.-
In view of the agitation for altera
tion of the city charter, the four pages
of suggestion made by the jury, along
lines providing for efficiency and eco
nomy w)U be received with attention.
The members of the grand jury were:
B. F. Beardmore, Arthur Berg. R. A.
Cooke. Charles S. Desky, H. B. Glf

The board ' of directors of the

this morning paid the . last dollar of
that Institution's indebtedness, leaving
thenew building entirely free from in
cumbrances. :
:.. When the association was moved to
the present location, It was found nec
essary by the board that fundi would
be needed for the Installation' of sev
eral new features In the association
and numerous extras, and for this pur-1-oee
a note, for six thousand dollars
wa drawn. Of this : amount, five
thousand dollars" was paid last year.
Ufring one thousand dollars o -aiuount
of private subscriptions given
to the asociation, and four thousand
(fcHars of the money given to the' -tociatlon,
a number of year aga Thti
lafct amount, that given to the associa
tion a number of years ago. hid been
pi eviously voted by the board to be
put aside as an endowment fond.
As a result of the membership cam
paign which was held yesterday the
t-oard deemed it best to use the thou
sand dollars paid in by the new mem
ber yesterday to pay the remainder
or the debt, and this was done this
morning and now the association

from three-fourths to four-fifths of tht
running expenses, but at the tame
time it Is necessary to solicit private
subscriptions to the amount of four oi

Ut must not be understood that the
campaign .which was held yesterday
wa for the purpose of raising money
to pay the remainder of the debt" said
V. C. Atherton, treasurer of the asso
ciation this morning. "This is not the
fact It ws not until this mornlne
that the board decided that it would
benefit the association if this debt n-ere
paid, and It was considered a good in
vestment for the money reeclved from

the asociation is free from indebted
ness it will continue lu wora on
firmer and better basis than ever be
fore, enlarging its work and its useful

"In order that there may be no mis

auested this Department to render an
opinion upon Che matter and at the last
meeting of the board such opinion was

Another big dredging; project, for
Pearl Harbor is being considered by
the i navy department and probably
the next congress Ssillfbetik'ejd to
pour a-round million of dollars into
the channel. The Kuperdreadnougbts
of the (new : navy have already made
necessary " the 'extension of the dry
dock, and now it is thought advisable
to deepen and widen thtf entrance to
the harbor Itself. -
Jt.ha been known for some. time
that naval . autnoritlei thought it
best to straighten Cue Pearl; Harbor
channel somewhat, but the, magnitude
Of the undertaking has just become
known locally. A fourth aa much
again a was spent for the original
dredging contract will be, required to
deepen the entrance channel; from' 35
to 40 feet and to cut off some of the
corners which , now make navigation!
of the passage very difficult for large
vessels. The estimate for.f this new
work 1 $900,000 while the amount of
the original contract wa $3,668,000.
No appropriation will - be asked ' from
the present congress, but the next ses
sion will be asked- to authorise; the
fufids. Thia brings the total esti
mated cost of the Pearl-Harbor naval
base up to $13,031,500. ...
Chung Nung, the Chinaman sentenc
ed to life Imprisonment by Circuit
mitting the crime, of rape upon a girl
less than twelve years old, will not be
set at liberty for the present. The su
preme court this morning denied the
writ of error applied for by Attorney
Lorrln Andrews, the prisoner's counsel.
The petition for the writ was based
primarily on the alleged failure of the
lower court to set forth in writing in
the record of the case, the judge's
charge to the. Jury. City and County
Attorney Cathcart appeared for the
prosecution both in the lower court and
in the supreme court in the present
case. The decision of the lower court
is sustained.
The old trouble with the Rapid
Transit Company about the paving of
its part of King street was threshed
over again at a meeting of the board
of supervisors this afternoon, being
started by a communication from
WASHINGTON, Jan. 11. Attorney Untermeyer, attorney for the house
committee investigating the so-called money trust, forced George Baker,
who was on the stand agajn today, to admit that the concentration of vast
.wealth in the hands of a few captains of finance is a serious and growing
menace to the freedom of the nation and to its industrial prosperity.
