TUESDAY, SEPT. 7, 1897.
A prominent resident waa arrtiatod
a few daya ago in broad day light
on King Street, and escorted by two
police ofBcors to the polico station,
whero ho wbb chargod with furious
and headless driving. Wo do not
wish to say anything in regard to
the charge or the rosull of it. The
judgo, who tried the easo, boHovcd
the witnesses for the government,
and fined the gentleman who was
Wo do desire, however, to say a
few words in regard to tho indiscreet
manner, in which tho arrest
was made, which shows the existence
of a systom that the Marshal
should abandon at onco, and which
was never tolerated by his predecessors.
A gontlomah, well-known in tho
community, and whoso name,
and placo of business are
known to every police ollicer, is
driving along the main thoroughfare
with a lady friend of high social
position. Two police officers, who,
somewhat to tho surprise of their
acquaintances, claim to bo experts
on all questions pertaining to horses
and their speed, docido, that tho
gentleman is driving furiously and
heedlessly. Thoy chaao him up and
stop hishorse, and insist in dragging
him and the lady to tho police
Realizing, that it would be use-loss
to argue with tho men clothed
in blue breeches and briof authority,
the driver suggests that he take tho
lady home, and then report at tho
station. Mr. Dole's gallant and
gontlemanly employees, however,
could, not accept a proposition,
which would have deprived them of
the satisfaction of dragging two
prominent society peoplo through
tho streets, as if they were common
When the Legislature provides
for arroBts by penal summons instead
of by warraut, it was done for
the sako of showing that Hawaii
follows the methods of civilized
countries. Formerly a man ahargod
with committing a trival misdemeanor
was arrested by warrant,
and put to tho inconvenionco of furnishing
bail for his appearance, although,
tho authorities knew that
ho had no intention of shirking his
responsibility, and would appear in
court whenever ho was wanted. By
tho institution of tho penal summons,
a stop in the right direction
was takon, and it was hoped that
our authoritios would follow in the
wake of civilization all along tho
In London, tho largest city in tho
world, no gontloman iB ever arrested
or yanked to a police station for fast
driving or scorching or othor misdemeanors,
as long as he is sober
and aotiug respectably. Ho will be
stopped, as soon as a polico officer
sees him, and ho will bo asked his
namo and address, and be invited to
not repeat tho offence and to appear
in the polico court tho following
morning, Should he ohooso to give
a wrong namo and address, tho
whole polico force will scour London
until ho is found and then woo
Now, what can bo accomplished
in London, certainly can be dono
here. It is within tho Marshal's
power to instruot his police to act
with discretion and save the public
all unnecessary annoyance. We
hope, that the "running in" of well-known
residents for trifling
of petty laws, wil lsoou become
a thing of the past. The Marshal
desires his administration of tho
police dopartmont to be popular and
accoptablo to the people. The only
way he can attain his objoot and
still have an offioient force, is to insist
in employing men, who understand
when and Loir to use sound
diRorotion and common sense.

It was expeotod that the management
of the Oahu Railroad would
havo made a public statement in regard
to tho accident on the road
last Thursday. Mr. Dillingham is
entitlod lo.tho groatest respect and
support of tho community in his
entorpriso and indefatigable energv
in promoting tho railroad, which
eventually will encircle tho Island
of Oahu. Ho is not yet a

to adopt tho motto of that railroad
king, "the public bo damned."
Tho public may some day resent being
treated in a cavalier fashion,
and representatives of tho voters
will meet in a few months to ask
questions and, wo hope, advanco

aooident was evidently not quito
