Rtond of meaning the strnmllng of a
vcnfi'1 on thu coral it liui come to tell in
three short wonls the wreck of u life,
the Masting of hiiimin hojies, the
liiiiiipiinent of one who traiiit;iresii'4 the
Inws of the country. When it hccoines
necessary on account of the weakness or
vieiousiie.si of a jiurson to restrain him
for n period ho is Ft'ht "on the reef."
This means sojourn in the high
walled old prison that stands upon the
coral on the Kwn sido of the hay. The
llgures 1857 boldly painted above thu
main entrance, tell that titiltu early
in the history of the Islands a prison
of some magnitude became necessary.
(Jahtt Jail, as it .is olllcially called, ein
bodies in architecture the ideas of sea
people, who naturally know but little
about prison structure. Were it not
that the island itself is practically a
prison to thu evil-doer, the penitentiary
would bo of small avail. The average
lirUon iKjpulation in any other country
oitlil regard escape fiom "the reef,
through wooden cell floors and rotting
coral wiills, as a lark. They would
go into these like a rat through wood.
It is just as Jailor Low says, the
only way they keep their guestH is by
watching tlicin. Some needed reforms in
in prison management have lieen made
since Mr. Low took charge of the insti
tution. It is neat and clean throughout
and that distinguishing prison odor is
not to bu noticed. The prisoners are
well dressed ai.d appear healthy. Many
of them seem ipiitu contented.
Oaliu prison consists of a mniii build
ing and two wings, with f cings to a
spacious and very pretty court itli a
large tree in the center, ltellgious' ser
vices aie held under these spreading
branches., During Sunday no less than
four lessons are given by persons carry
ing the word. At the right and left of
the main entrance tq the building
arc tlie jailor's otlico and the armory.
The latter in its present ni range
ment is a new feature. One of the lust
departments shown the visitor is the
section for women. Here all thu prison
clothes for all the islands are madu.
Vina King, still in ill-humor, the witch
of Lanai and a woman thief are at pres
ent engaged in building the blue and
gold costumes. The famous kahuna is
looking well. The three women are
daily taken into tlie big jail yard on the
right of thu buildings for exercise. In
this space are also their bath-room mid
11 building where prison shoes are re
paired. In the front of the prison is a
walled lawn where "commuted men '
may loar. All the other prisoners
have their liberty in the court,
l'rison fare is better than a good
many ot the convicts usually have.
It include n pound of meat a day, pu
rice, oread, vegetables, cracUerB, tea
and colTee, with dried fruit. The allow
ance is liberal, but if a man says lifter a
meal that he is still hungry he is per
mitted to fill ii on thu sen biscuit. The
troublesome prisoueis uro tlie white
men, the Chinese and a fuw Japs. As n
rule the natives give no bother at all,
There are two methods of desciiiline.
One is the chain gang and Kum Wun
is its most noted member. The second
is the daikcell. where mosnuitos nnd a
bread and water diet quickly brine thu
