Circuit Court Notice.
Contrary to calcvlations, the busi
ness of the Circuit Court took up all
of this week, altbongh it was sup
posed that tbf work would have been
completed a week ago. Court, jurors
and attorneys worked day and uight
last week, but the volume of business
was larger than had been anticipated.
The case of the Territory vs John
Kcawr, manslaughter in tho firWi
degree wns begun last week, tut the
panel of jurors was exhausted, and a
new venire Issued, which included
names on Molokai. As the Molokai
jurors could not arrive till Wednes
day of this week, the case was con
tinued till Thursday morning. When
the case was called for trial, defend
ant asked to with draw his plea of not
guilty, and enter a plea of guilty,
which was granted. Prisoner was
thereupon sentence to five years im
prisonment at hard labor. As he has
the reputation of being a tough cit
izen, his neighbors can well spare him.
On Monday, the case of S. Ahmivs.
A. V. Marciel, ejectment was taken
up, and a special jury empanelled.
The case was completed on Wednes
day afternoon, resulting in a verdict
On Thursday morning tne case Of
the Territory vs Morris et.al, charged
with rape, was called for trial. As
there were only thirteen term jurors
left, it became necessary to issue
a special vanire for 24 jurors to try
the case. The venire was issued and
made returnable at nine o'clock yes
tcrday morning, at which time the
jury was completed, and the case is
on trial today.
There are several more criminal
cases yet to be tried' and the same
difficulty is likely to be experienced
in each case. It is practically impos
sible to secure a full jury from the 13
term jurors, consequently as each
case is called, a new special venire
must issue, and as the jurors are
scattered from Hana to Molokai,
several days of waiting will be re
quired in each case, for the distant
jurors to arrive. This will stretch
out tbe term indefinitely and conse
quently there is some talk of closing
the term and continuing the criminal
cases to tbe June term. This may
not be done for two reasons, however,
The first is that Judge Kalua is very
anxious to clear up the calendar be
fore his possible retirement from the
Oencb, ana secondly, defendants wno
are entitled to a speedy trial may ob
ject and raise serious legal questions.
It is a dilemma, either way, but will
probably be decided at the end of the
trial of the present case.
The important cases yet remaining
untried are a charge of highway
robbery against Bailey,Mossman and
Miner, aud Cabral and Kipi for burg
Governor Carter has called a spec
ial session of the legislature, to' con-
veue at Honolulu on Wednesday,
April 6, for the consideration of such
financial measures as many be
brought before it.
J. he members irom Maui are as
follows: Senators; Bon. H. P. Bald
win, Hon. S. E. Kaiue; Rppresenta
live; Hon. W. F. Beckley (Speaker,)
Hon. S. E. K-limol, Hon. S. E. Kala
ma, Hod. W. P. Haia, Hon. Philip
Pali and Hon. Joel Nakaleka.
This will be the third session of the
present legislature, the first twoses
sions of which were long and expen
sive ones, but it is believod that the
present session will be a short one.
Outside of confirming previous nom
inations of the Governor, no other
business will probably come up ex
cept the readjustment of financial
It is stated that Speaker. Beckley
hss pledged himself to Governor
Carter to allow no extraneous mat
ters to come up in the lower House,
provided the Senate sticks closely to
tbe business for which the legislature
bas been called, and as tbe Senate
will probably do so, it is not believed
that the session will extend beyond
thirty days, even if it lasts that long.
The generally expressed sentiment
on Maui is that the legislature should
promptly do the work for which- it
has been called, and then adjourn at
once. . .
