Leslie M. Shaw, ex-Governor of
Iowa will succeed layman J. Gngc
in President Roosevelt's Cabinet as
Secretary of the Treasury. The
selection of Governor Shaw for this
post is an exceedingly happy one.
It is doubtful if there is a man in
the Union better equipped for the
performance of the duties of Secre
tary of the Treasury than the
country banker and Methodist Sun
day School teacher from the Hawk
eye state. I le is a born financier and
a past master in political economy
and the science of monetary prob
lems. He comes from n little
nearer the heart of the great West
that did his distinguished predeces
sor, Gage, but takes into the cabi
net no less of brain and breadth
than was possessed by the Chicago
Before McKinley's death, Leslie
M. Shaw was by far the most for
midable rival to Theodore Roose
velt in the minds of Western Re
publicans for the office Roosevelt
now holds. Allison had picked
him for the winner in 1904.
Shaw rose into national prom
inence in the great campaign of
1896, when the battle of the gold
and silver standards was fought be
tween Bryan and McKinley.
Previous to that time Leslie M.
Shaw was a banker in a small
country town and had never taken
part even in state or county politics.
He became alarmed at the appar
ent popularity of the Bryan fallacies
aud applied to the National Repub
lican committee for the privilege of
making fifty speeches for McKinley
and sound money without pay.
His speeches rang from New York
to San Francisco as models of truth
and simplicity and force. In the
central states he lifted the conten
tion of parties from the plane of
political strife to that of scientific
reasoning. He was rewarded by
the governorship of his state the
following election, that being the
first office he ever held except that
of Sunday School superintendent.

the road between Hilo and lloolulu

powder is a menace to life and limb,

It is only two hundred feet from
the powder magazine to the Waia
kea school house. It is less than
one hundred aud fifty feet from the
new Sunday school chapel. The
powder house is not far from the
new railroad shops aud several
dwellings have lcen erected in that
immediate vicinity.
An explosion at the powder
magazine would create havoc in
several homes. If an accident
should happen while children are
playing about the school house the
result may be easily

Washington, Dec. 26. The im
pending retirement of the Secretary
of the Treasury is likely to be
followed soon by the resignation of
the Assistant Secretary. General
Spaulding's health is poor, and it
likely that he will be transferred
to a public service in one of our

climate would be less trying and
the Government could still avail it

To T1115 Hon. Gii.iiuht F. Litti.k,
Circuit Judge, Fourth Circuit.
Sir: The Grand Jury for the
Fourth Circuit for the January
Term, beg leave to report as fol
lows: We find that a man Omori was
in the grocery business at Kalepo
lepo, from June, 1901, to the month
of December. He occupied prem
ises owned by Yutaro, a police offi
cer, in the District of Hilo.
During the month of December,
1901, he transferred his business to
his brother, for which he received
no pay, and the house adjoining
was secured, and the grocery busi
ness transferred thereto. During
the month of November, 1901, a
Dealers' Spirit License was granted
on the 29th day, to said Omori.
Prior to this a letter was addressed
to Sheriff Andrews, asking for his
approval. On the 26th day of
November, he wrote to Honolulu,
noting his disapproval of same on
account of the character of the
party, and the location where the
' store on Front Street, as on former
j occasions he borrowed from the
same party, for which
he gave no
In following up our investiga-) In further examination of his

Mr. B. Ouoiuc, after being sc-
Iccted as the president,
objected to
interference of Yutaro, and refused
to accept the office.
The buying of the liquor was to
be left to the manager. Omori was
selected as the manager.
We learn that the license was
issued through the assistance of the
law firm of Ridgway aud Ridgway,
assisted by Senator J. T. Brown.
The license was issued in the name
of Omori. We learn that they have
been purchasing goods in the name
of The Japanese Wine and Liquor
Co., from business houses in Hilo.

tion of his books, that officers of

ion, was to represent their full paid

are to perform, cartage not in
cluded. We are iufoiincd that a special
officer has been detailed for the dis
trict, to investigate all licenses, aud
how issued, and to whom, and
whether delinquent or not. We
are of the opinion that he should
be more diligent in his work.
Interviewing the Sheriffs De
partment, we find that the Sheriff
has been on a still hunt, looking
into the matter, not takintr his
deputy into his confidence, to the 1
extent of not allowing information I
regarding this matter to come ,
through its proper channels.
We regret that officers serving
under the Government of the Ter-!
ritory of Hawaii should be so
grasping in looking for gain, as to
associate in the liquor traffic with
men of inferior quality, and the in
consistency of a clerk in the
Sheriff's office, as well as a clerk
" t'c District Court, and a deputy
clerk in your Honor's Court, acting
as an olliccr in n company, Hie

' greater portion of the cases brought
before the District Court, and in
many cases before your Honor,

Grand Jury.
