SUBSCRIPTION RATES. $2.50 PLR YFAR 5 CENTS PER COPY if TRUCTS JURORS Yesterday morning at 10 o'clock, Judge Dickey convened the grand jurors for the special term of "'' ' court, and instructed them as follows: , , ' GUNTLKMISN 01' TUB GRAND JURY: There can be no legal convic- ' tion in this Territory for any of- feuse punishable by imprisonment for a term exceeding one year - without presentment or indictment ; by a grand jury. ' The grand jury is designed not onlyw3A a means of bringing to ,t trial persons accused of crime up- on sufficient grounds, but also of protecting persons against u n founded accusations, whether pro ceeding from the government or ', d. individuals. You have therefore as grand jurors, a dutv to society ' unler which you shall require pirties against whom there are just grounds upon which to charge -' the commission of a crime, to be . ' held to answer thereto, and a duty to the individual also, to protect him from prosecutions under in- ( ' sufficient charges. ' Various district magistrates of the county have found cause to believe that certain persons have committed crimes and committed them to jail until you examine in to these cases and either find in dictments or refuse to do so. These matters have a first claim upon your attention. You are also re quired to examine all other matters brought to your attention by the court or the county attoniey. You are not limited to these matters however, but may also examine into any other alleged violation -of law that may come to your knowledge, either in the course of '' . ' voiv.iivesti$?ations o,f matters fflft iSWbsvatimisVor Such as ' may be brought, before you through your members. 1 , You will hear the witnesses for ', . ' She prosecution, or as maytof these witnesses as you deem necessary ! . and if. i n vour judgment, the i evidence of such witnesses, uu- explained and uncontradicted, would warrant a conviction by a trail jury, it will be your duty to I find an indictment. You will not .- permit accused persons, .or their , attorneys or witnesses to appear ! before you. Because of the partial character of your investigations in hearine only the testimony of the prosecution, you must weigh well the testimony produced and in arriving at a conclusion as to its truth or falsity, may take into consideration not only the state ments of a witness, but its manner or testifying and appearance on the stand, as well as the inherent nrn 'oaNHtv or improbability of . his vStimonv. . " You need not, however, use up ' , your time in hearing cumulative testimony. The hearing of more than one witness to prove a given v fact, if you give the testimony of ' such witness full weight and cred it, and i t alone would in your f , judgment justify you in finding that there is probable cause o r believe that a trial jury would ; , convict, is nn unnecessary t a x upon your time and patience and ' mi unnecessary cost to the tax- ' pavers of the county. You may obtain subpoenas from ' the court for witnesses. The county attorney will be ready at all times to assist you in your examinations will examine witnesses and draw up indictments for you. You may also, yourselves, examine all wit nesses and may have such iuter nreters as you need. Hxcept the county attorney, interpreter and the witness under examination, no person s,ia11 be Permitted to be ..rcAi'tit at anv of your sessions and you must exclude all persons including the county attorney fmm voui presence while you deliberate and when you vote Any indictment found by you, may 1. xet aside it tins rule is violated The sessions of a grand jury are yeoret because it would be a hard ship to anv one against whom un founded charges are brought, if such charges should be made pub- and in order chat there may bet impossible to get anything, e utmost freedom of disclosure j The trouble lies in the scare of crimes and of discussion by in vour deliberations and in order that the danger of escape of accused persons before arrest and Continued on page 4.

In arranging the build- n g, Manager Hermann Wolters nd Engineer Andermann, hit upon a scheme which nas an modern theater boxes backed clear off the. stage. On each side of the entrance.to the building, a railroad rickhasi,beeiu construotedtf-the tracks leading, up to within fifty feet of the stage. The trains ap proach the building and at a given ignal, the immense doors,, slowly swing open, and the tancy, open- top, upholstered cars, laden with happy theater goers, come gliding nto the house, coming to a stop high above the heads of those on the lower floor. Iiach car is in charge of a conductor who looks after the comfort of the occupants and who arranges foi transporta tion of i t s passengers to their homes at the close of the per formance. The theater was open ed last Friday evening and in the special train theater boxes were many prominent Hanamaulu peo.- ple and press representatives. Being taken to the theater in a luxuriously appointed car, whn.li conveys you to the very stage, and there remains until you get ready to go home again, is an inovation which is certain to prove popular. n The Player's View lliey lounge in th' cool o' tli' shady stun', Willi a palm leal wagged uya lazzy nan ; "Wo work our heada oil' out in th' sun 15y tli' sweat of our brow, toourn each run.

Another report has it that one h as been discovered l n Home stead. Waimea citizens have been cautioned as to the conspicuous drinking o f water as a suspicious case in under surveilauce there. Off For Vacation Mr. R. W. T. Purvis a u d daughter Silburn, leave this aftei noon for a vacation of nine weeks, most of which will be spent in South Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. They will also visit the sou who is- a student at Lehigh. Miss Purvis j will enter an eastern preparatory school, and Mr. Purvis will make the return trip alone. Miss Purvis is one of our most popular girls and was guest of honor at one of the most elaborate social events of the year, given recently at the La- wai Heach House, the same being 'a special farewell paitv. One of the most significant won ders of modern Agriculture is the discovery, adaptation and develop ment of new plant products com mercially valuable. Of late years the Agricultural Department a t Washington has been devoting si great ileal of attention to this with marked success. Men of expert intelligence aie continually ran sacking all parts of the world in search for new or valuable plants and sending them to the experi mental sti.tions for trial and adaptation. In this way many valuable acquisitions have been made and vast possibilities have been suggested for the futuie. A bare outline of these vi.lual le (lis overies would run to great 1 nglh, but a few of them may be nutitioued. New varieties of rice ol gixat prom se came from Asia, tvo new potatoes from the mouii t tins of Peru, the original home ot the )0 a o. ni w varieties of oranges that will stand cold, a lemon ftom the Himnhivi'S that is n o t injured by severe frost, a valuable persimmon from Japan, a fine fruit well worthy of cultiva tion here, soya beans from Man churia, with a varied and very significant value. One kind fur nishes paint oil another milk and cream and even butter, it is said, and they are all of great value for creating humus. From Shantunj in China comes a luscious peach, of which our Haw; iian variety is probably a degenerate offshoot; fnjin the South Sea Islands, three new passion fruits of which the Samoan granadilla is probably one, already known and prized by us. Amona the rest-our'.fikala or- wild LHipi!'ulauiras.pbeiTy,fsinittiDhed asa fnut'of great promise. For size, beauty and bearing qualities, it is the prince o f raspberries, bdng often as large as a small tea cup. It grows in great profusion on the mountains of Hawaii and Maui and when improved by cul tivation will be a prize indeed. During bve-gone ages we have pretty much been contented to en joy the meagre fruits and other food products of our fathers. The time is already at hand when we win immensely improve and en rich them, and a very enchanted land of agricultural possibilities lies before us. J. M. Lydgatb. Extremely Happy 'Iain so happy! The date is now set for the Koloa concert. It is to be held on the evening ot August 24 next Saturday com mencing at 7:30 p. in. It will be on Mr', fancy s oeautittil lawn. Full moon has been provided for the drive to and from the concert and the tickets only cost 50 cents standing room but 25 cents, and as the lawn cm only hold 2,000 people, you'd better come early. "After the concert, there will be refreshments served. What will happen afterwards, where there are young people, fine music, a lovely lawn and a full moon, I will leave to your own imagination. But, say, won't it be scrump tious?" Waimea People Abroad A letter from Mt. and Mrs. H. C. Brown of Waimea informs this paper that their vacation has been spent in the vicinity of Yosemite and Yellow Stone. "When we get our Flanders well in hand," writes Mr. Brown, we propose to run down to Santa Cruz, San Jose and Palo Alto, and will sail on the Sonoma, Aug. 27." Typhoid Is Checked A telephone message ' to this office at noon to-day. states that there have been no new cases of typhoid develop at Makaweli with in the last week, nnd that nil the present patients are convalescent. The situation is said to bn under thorough control and no outbreak or spread of the disease is expect ed. 1 Grand Juryman Ralph Wilcox was reported too ill to attend jury . duty this morning.
