OCTOBER 13, li)()G Grand July's The CJ rand Jury of tho Second Circuit Court Quick Work, was sworn in on Wednesday morning1 and at three o'clock of the same day they were finally discharged for the term having had but one case to consider and reported no true bill For a County containing the thousands of people of dillerrnt nationalities that this County does it certainly speaks well. Few Counties, indeed, in tlto most advanced and enlightened parts of the mainland can show such a good record as this and wh"en we consider too, that in many parts of the County there are thousands of people of different nationalities living in crowded houses it is certainly surprising that wo can show such a clear record as we have. That there was no charge against any of the County officials was what everyone expected, fur we have as clean and competent and trustworthy a set of officials as could bo foutut any" here in the States. Indeed, had there been an indictment against any one of them it would have been a great surprise to all. As all of our County ollicials are out for office again they all should be returned to their respective offices for another term as a reward for the ex cellent manner in which they have conducted the affairs of the County during the time of initiating County (Jovernment. Polotlcs and During the last month several of our Home Patlzanship. Rule friends have been attacking the records of the Kepblican County and District officers and trying to lead the people to believe there has been graft and dishonest adminis tration of public affairs. Last Saturday evening 11. J. K. Nawahi ne, the Home Rule nominee for tho legislature, made tho most seri ous changes of dishonesty against the road Department at Olowa lu and Lahaina. Edward Wilcox has been the most bitter in his denunciation of Supervisor T. M. Church of Paia. Now it happened that both of these gentlemen were members of the Grand Jury at La- haina this week and both had every opportunity to bring charges against any official who has been guilty of any offence. They not only had an opportunity but it was their sworn duty to do so in case they know of any offence having been committed. Now what did these gentlemen do when under oath? They re ported to tho Court: The County of Maui may well bo proud of her record during the past four months as a law abiding communi ty, and the citizens of Maui County are to bo congratulated in not having the criminal records of their Courts bear witness to even a single offence of a serious charcter. No complaints concernino; the competency, efficiency or honesty of any public official, or concerning irregularities in any department of Government, have come to the notice of this Jury, and we are aware of no conditions in our pub lic life that call for cither investigation or criticism." From this it will be seen that some of the" Jury at least are one thing when making a partizan speech and another when under oath and doing their duty as citizens. , We congratulate the erentlemen on their honesty and for doing their duty as citizens even though they fail to do so as political partizan s. A Severe Test. A few months ago the Federal Government appropriated $30,000 to defray the expenses of (he Legislature of the Territory of Hawaii on condition that tho members of the Lust islature accept no remuneration for services in an extra session that has been made necessary by the members in the past by refus ing to pass the appropriation bills during the; regular sessions. It was the editor of the News who first noted the full meaning of the new law and at once called the attention of tho County Attorney to the clause who agreed that we were correct in our views of the meaning of the law. In a recent issue of the Star tho matter is treated in the follow ing manner; "The next legislature will have presented to its individual mem bers a test as severe as the "shiboleth" of the Israelites. They will be called on to decide whether an appropriation of $30,000 from the United States treasury to the Territory is worth the sacrifice of $200 apiece by the members. "The last session of congress included among its appropriations one of $30,000 for the expenses of the legislature of Hawaii, condi tioned however upon the agreement of the members of tho legis lature not to accept pay for services at any extra or special session of the legislature. "What this.means may bi better understood by reference to the custom of past legislatures which this conditional clause in the ap propriation was intended to reach. Each of the three territorial legislatures has purposely refrained from passing the appropria tion bills during the sixty days of the regular session for the ex press purpose of compelling the governor to extend the session, thus securing to the legislators an aaditional $200 apiece. Under the appropriation of this $30,000 by congress, the legislators can compel the governor to extend the session i? it chooses or if it really needs the additional time in which t transact its business, but the members enn't accept pay for it, without its costing the Territory just $30,000. Now there's a test of duty. "Thirty thousand dollars does not pay the expenses of an Ha waiian legislature. A regular and a special session cost us nearer $75,000. But still every little helps, and $30,000 is at least a little. If any convention had thought of it, it might have made a hit with the voters, whatever it made to the candidates, by pledging its candidates to forego their pay for the extended session in order to enable the Territory to get tho $30,000 from tho Federal treasury. "Perhaps the individual candidate might make a hit yet by an nouncing in his campaign speeches that if elected ho will forego claim to additional pay for an extended session of tho legislature in order to help the Territory to that $30,000, i "What candidates cau stand tho test?" LAHAINA LI NHS. Tlie Pioneer Mill will s'.arl grind ing on Hip 15th instant. The crop is a big one and it will take an early start to finish in time for next Beacons planting. The Woman's Guild of Lahaina will hold a fair and lunu nt the Court House Park from 12 noon on Satui day. They have made grand prep era lions to oi t do ull former at tempts of the kind in Lahaina. The booths will consist of tents and will be studded over the green and spac ious lawns of the ourt yarls. The lairest of Lahaina bells will he at the head of each department to see that the public in genet al get the worth of their money and as it is court term here in Lahiina a land office business is predicted. Preparations are now on foo to huikl a tennis court buck of the Bald win Home. The grounds are being shaped up and in a few days from now we will have one of the fastest Courts on Maui. Mrs. II. P. Baldwin was over thi week on a sho-t visit looking over the improvements made on the HaM win Home. Mr. Jam -s Bmgherty from Wirli man's his flooded the town with sparkles.

Hack 'eld Co came up from Honolulu to take his place pro ten". Mr. and Mrs. William Huehanan are now domiciled at. the old Jones' premises, corner of Jones and Church street. Delegate Kuhio and aspirants for legislative honors were tendered a grand ovation here last Friday night. Hon. J. W. Coelho, w-as the first speaker and when he was introducid he fairly carried the crowd by storm not withstanding the fact that this is Oily Bill's stamping ground. This made very little difference with "Gassy Bill" who is out to tho front with acetyline gas as an illuminating body. The rest o, the speakers were well received and about 10.30 the Delegate himself came up. His rr marks were well received and he took a great deal of pains in making him self tbroughly understood with the masses concerning the racial ques lion that the opposition is always us ing against the Republican Party. Hon. Judge Kepoikai was then called u,pon to adress the crowd and it was about 12 before wo dispersed This was tie most attentive t udience that ever witnessed a Mass meeting at Lahaina. Ex Queen Liliuokalani came up on the Claudir.e to make a short stay for her health. The climate here seems to be ideal. She has now made the circuit of the Islands but there is no place that has agreed with her like Lahaina. In all probabilities she will stay here for a few months We are to have a branch of the Alexander House in Lahaina. Mifs Onisted, a recent arrival from the Stales, will be in full charge of this division she is staying with Miss Simpson, who is at present located here in charge of the Kindergarten classes.
