TUB GRAND JURY REPORT.
The O rand Jury, called to Investi
gate the charge of bribery made by the
Oovcrnor In an official communica
tion to tlio first Legislature of the
Territory, 'finds on the testimony of
the officials given under oath:
That Governor Dole based his charge
on Information received "from second
or third hands."
That Attorney General Dole, the
prosecuting officer of the Territory,
"had no evidence In his possession that
would com let any member of bribery
or corruption:" that to disclose his
sources of Information would defeat
the ends of justice;
That Secretary Cooper, later Acting
Governor "had no evidence of brib
ery" but knew of contributions on
which he thought sufficient evidence
could bo obtained to prote bribery;
That Superintendent of Public
Works McCandlcss and Treasurer
Lansing had nothing but hearsay about
That the High Sheriff knew of brib
ery In a "general way only;" that not
withstanding the Ornnd Jury was call
ed on May 13th for tho specific purposa
of lu estimating tho charge of bribery.
It was not until May lilh, ten days
after, that Attorney General Dole In
structed him to secure evidence, and
cten then gae tho High Sheriff no
clues to work upon.
That Jacob Cocrpcr Thurston's
client was asked by three members
of tho House what thero was In it for
them provided they secured the pas
sage of his railway franchise; that
these three members dented hating
made such a statement; that Cocrper
paid an officer of the House, not a
member, to help his bill along, but re
fused to gle the name as It might In
That testimony warranted the belief
that commissions and discounts had
been requested by persona outside tho
Legislature for handling printing.
That Dr. Russet's assertion of a
165,000 corruption fund to defeat the
Dispensary bill, had no toi t dation iuf
That the Noito free Inn :h a nndal
was a hot nlr balloon of tho Advertiser's.
n.1.-. .l..lt.nA ..I tl.n nfflnora' Pl.lH
had been abused.
That transportation companies had
Issued passes to members of tho I.ctls
That Pearson's aflldalt on lialllK
Lewis might be true enough but Lewis
had done nothing to make him subject
to a criminal statute and that Lewlj
had "done politics" with Pearson tie-,fore.
They havo been tfveri 'a lcason'trl 'Am
erican citizenship and American Jus
tice. May they profit by It.
The 'Bulletin will not attempt to
solve tho motive that prompted' the
Governor's action, His acts and thbw
of men associated with him are beyond
comprehension. It the, charge against
the Legislature was hot made as a poli
tical offset to the Executive's failure to
do business with the Legislature, It
must then be put down as the most
childish move ever'mado by any Am-
It docs not escape public attention

front and rear rank, the creators and
sponsors for tho nttack upon the Judge
of the FJrst Clrc.nU Court. They an
tagonized this Judge, from tho dfty'he
took his seat on tho bench. When this
Judge called them to account for their
efforts to blockade Justice, for tho in
sults offered the court, they rose In
well feigned wrath. And whom did
they enlist with them? First their
employes and relatives, then the Attor
ney General, his deputy, tho High
Sheriff and finally members of tha
Legislature who had asked the Oovcr
nor not to extend tho regular session.
Finally, tho Governor's chargo is
found to bo without foundation of fart.
Time has shown that refusal to extend
the legislative session was a mistake,
since tho Legislature must be called In
extra session to savo the Territorial
treasury from bankruptcy. Tho only
thing that remains for tho conspirators
Ifi their revolution ngalnst Judge Hum
phreys. The conspirators already be
gin to realize that they can produce
nothing to Justify the lrcsldent In re
moving Judge Humphreys.
Is nnythlng more needed to Justify
the conclusion that the Governor, real
izing that pence Is what the Territory
needs If It Is to enjoy tho full fruits of
American progress and prosperity. Is
seriously contemplating withdrawal
from public office and as n private citi
zen enjoy tho adoration of his friends
and the respect of his enemies .
IT IS TO LAUGH.

r Hilo, Hawaii, June 7, 1901.
In my innocence I purchased
here in Hilo a jar of your
(rut up by Mrs. E. O KI44, Richmond, VD
It brought me great trouble, and
one of three things must occur :
A Full Line of Dixon's Graphite Products.
One Style Out of Many
The first thought of tho unbiased
citizen is that Governor Dole Is cither
b fool or a knave. Not being ready to
charge him with being cither, the con
clusion becomes at once apparent that
the Governor has proved Ihlmsclf a
weak sister, either Innocent of tho
seriousness of tho chargo ho was mak
ing or not strong enough to have a
mind of his own when beset with cither
fools or knaves who hoped to gain
political prestige through malicious
gossip and unfounded hearsay of tho
street corners or the secret political
Tho Attorney General Dole appears
In a light that hardly needs comment.
The mere fact that ho did not call
upon the High Sheriff to secure evi
dence, and even at the time did not
gWe the High Sheriff any.clue to work
upon, until a full ten days after the
a rand Jury was called is of Itself suffi
ciently convincing to establish th
positive conclusion that the Attorney
Oeenral Dole's Ideas of Justice wero
not taken from the traditions and
teachings of American forefathers or
American leaders of the present day,
The Attorney General seems to have
a special lino of his own, which, If It
BUDeals to anyone, must nnu support
era and followers outside the ranks of
those who believe that "American law
Is common Justice."
Secretary Cooper sits on a sharp
pinnacle with his associates.
Thurston and his organ are found In
their time honored piratical berth, and
Pearson havlns "dono politics" with
Lewis appears to bo a weak tool, who
on second thought thinks he can set
tho world on fire, but like an small
minded men finds himself up a tree.
Tho Advertiser, Thurston's govern
ment organ, Intimates that the Grand
Jury's report was Just what was ex
pected. As Thurston doubtless had a
knowledge of all the information the
Governor had on which to base bis
charge, tho Advertiser has unques
tionably been In a.posUton to posltive
ly'asscrt from the first that the chargo
of bribery could not bo proved at the
time it was made nor could it bo prov
ed nor would It bo proved had tho
Attorney cGneral been given years to
compile his evidence to tho end that
Justice shall be done. Tho Grand Jury
worked a full month on tho Investiga
tion, called over a hundred witnesses,
subpoenaed any and all persons who
wero suggested as possibly having uny
knowledge of or had heard of bribery.
When tho report la finally mado oven
the piratical Advortlser cannot find
nny grounds on which to nttack tho
Integrity of tho Jury's verdict. The
Thurstonlnn conspirators have found
that it Is not as easy to besmirch the
good name of a citizen or citizens net
Jng In a public capacity ns It was under
tho "good old duys of tho Republic?'
"MR. LEWIS 8TATKI) THAT HE
HAD DONE POLITICS WITH MR.
PEARSON some time ago." Grand
Jury Report. x
It is to laugh when the
Advertiser goes on Its regulation
Junketing trips for good government.
Mr. Pearson made an aflU.ivl. that this
Mr. Lewis had tried tj rot-nipt him.
Pirlili tho thought that Lpwm nhcuM
seel: to spill such Innocent blood In
what way was It that Mr. I enU whom
the Adtcrtlscr abhors "done politics
with Mr. Pearson?" Did Mr. Penmen
or Attorney Andrews nppioarh Mr.
Lewis with the request that he tell
them how to get control of the Re
publican Territorial convention? And
did Mr, Lewis tell thes) exponents cf
"good government" that it was easy
game, requiring only a nil) to cotinuv
districts to get control of delegate?
And did Mr. Lewis, Mr. Pearson o.1
Attorney Andrews individually or col
lectively make a trip to Walanac for
purposes mapped out by Lewis? And
did the scheme fall Ignomlnlously In
the scrap heap becauso tho scions of
good government could not get vot
ers enough to carry a primary? And
was It not Mr. Turk and Mr. Lew-Is
who wero marshaling voters in tho
Second Precinct, along with Rev. Ke-
kipl, who afterwards became an In
dependent cxborter, for the ticket of
the "good goernment"i angels?
Senlly there must bo something
"good" about this man Lewis and Mr.
Turk whom the Advertiser decorates
with stripes of corruption, when they
have "done politics" with the really
"good government" ndvocates. Isn't
it up to Mr. Pearson to make another

The Kllefonls outdid themsches In
"Lost In New York" last night at the

and enjoyed tho play greatly, as was
evident by their hearty applause
throughout the entire performance.
Jessie Norton mado a decided hit
as Jennie Wilson the little waif, keep
ing the audlenco in continual roars of
laughter. Miss Weirno had a part that
was ill adapted to her style of acting
but carried off her part with remark
able credit. Carl Berch Is always good
whether as hero or villain, and showed
his great versatility av nn actor by
adapting himself to hU part.
Tonight tho Ellefords give their last
performance In Honolulu. The Elle
