Humphreys' address to the grand jurv.
Irwin probably givesome people indigestion,
but it is good American law

The question to settle is. does
tha Judge point the way to the truth?
K. R. Hendry, formerly of the board
of feoaltlt. has become chief deputy
United States Marshal for this district.
Mr. Hendry, who is so widely
known in Hawaii, will be practically
In charge of the office, which will mean
first-class, service in that department.
1Bhj American law, which now happily
prevails here, knows no rich, no
poor: no mighty and no exalted; it is
the deadest loveler of society before
the law. It will be unpleasant for
some reople to recognize this fact, at
first, but they will soon realize the
beauty of its operation.
It is a well known principle In law
that a prosecuting attorney can not
appear in court, save in the capacity
calling for his official duties or in civil
causes. But an Attorney General, representing
a State or Territory,, Is
from all participation in practice
save those of an official nature. He
can authorize proceedings by quo
and all that, but he cannot be a
private practitioner. For the loss of
business the government pays him an
ample salary. Mr. Dole undoubtedly
considers Judge Humphreys' decision
"sensational," but a few hours of study

THE FIRST GRAND JTJKY.
The charge of Judge Humphreys to
the grand 'jury yesterday was bold,
fearless and timely. It was a shock to
some people of the community because
of its bluntness and straightforward
ness. It was worded In such good,
plain English that the wayfaring man
e'en though a fool may read. It was
a fitting Introduction to the American
and old English system of grand ju
ries. It struck at many, very many,
of the abuses of power in Hawaii by the
government and was a broad statement
of the fact that in these days the governed,
the people rule. The grand
stands for the governed, not the gov
As Judge Humphreys well said, it is
a high duty each and every member
of the grand jury has to perform.
They serve with a grave responsibility,
for on their action depends the rights
of the people, protection from the
vicious and the self-preservation of
the fireside and the sancity of the
home. They sit for the community,
for the whole people.
The jury has a grave duty to perform
In investigating the illegal sale
of liquor at Waikiki, and while about
it, it might with benefit to the community
investigate the illegal sale of
liquor by a King street restaurant. It
is open and notorious and known to
every man who visits the beach on Sunday
that liquors are sold openly at the
hotels, and yet the High Sheriff and
his police force have never been able
to learn the fact, though they have had
no trouble in finding "blind tigers" aut
there which sold liquor.
The statements about police protection
afforded the houses of ill-repute
at Iwilei have been open and notorious.
Even graver charges have been made
against the HIsh Sheriff personally
which the grand jury cannot afford to
ignore. Nor can the jury afford to ignore
the Judge's charges In relation to
Information concerning the pocketing
of money found in Chinese gambling
houses, by officers who raided them.
It would be wise for the grand jury
to select its own officer to summon its
witnesses in examining these cases and
not leave that work in the hands of the
High Sheriff, who is himself virtually
under examination by the grand jury
and who would very naturally not want
the jury to obtain the facts, if they be
true, which affect him personally and
the police department over which ne
There is much good work,laid out for
the grand jury by the court, and if it
will but follow the court's directions
boldly and fearlessly it will result in
invaluable good to the city and ter
ritory and effect a much needed reformation
in the entire police foice from
top to bottom, and if it does not do
this it will be recreat to its duty and
to its oath.
Effect of Opening the Mills.
The Republican National Committee
sent out blanks to members of the National
Association of Manufacturers,
asking themto furnish the number of
men whom they had employed in each
year from 1S90 to 1S99, inclusive, as
well as the total amount of wages
which they had paid during the same
There were 200 replies. They showed
a steady increase in the number of
hands employed in the 200 factories un
til the year 1S93. There was an immediate
drop of 10,000 men in 1S94,
when they employed 90.4S3 men. But
in 1S97 they employed 109.600: in 1S9S,
131.42S men. and last year 174,645 men.
In short, the number of wage-earners
employed by these same 200 factories
increased from 90.4S3 men in 1S94 up
to 174,645 last year almost doubled.
But the contrast is even more striking
when applied to the amount of
wages paid, and the following table
shows the returns received from the
Year. "Wages Paid.
The amount of wages paid by these
same 200 manufacturers increased
steadily from 1S90 to 3S92, then there
was a drop in 1S93 and another drop
in 1S94. During the next two years
wages picked up, but it was not until ;
1S97 that these same manufacturers ni
were payia out as much money in '
wages as they had paid in ISM.
. , ... , 1
Between 1SS4 and 1SS9, the 200
cturers had increased their payrolls 1
by upwards of $SS.OOO,0OQ. In lact, the
amount ot wages which they distributed
last year was almost double wnat
they paid out in 1SS4. Apply this to
the whole country and try to realise
what benefit "opening the mills" has
been to American wage-earners and to
these who feed and clothe them.

Hawaiians In "Washington.
The following, from the Washington
Post, shows that Hawaii's Republican
delegates did not. fail to attract attention
in the national capital:
"An elaborate dinner was given at
Chamberlain's last evening by Col.
Samuel Parker, the "Cattle King cf
Hawaii," who is well and favorably
known in Washington and who was a
delegate to the recent Republican convention
in Philadelphia. Among Col.
Parker's guests were Gov. Otero of
New Mexico, Senator Clark of Wyoming,
former Chief Justice Smith of
New Mexico, Mr. Charles B. Wilson of
Honolulu, Judge A. N. Kepoikai of Hawaii,
Mr. L. Montgomery Mather of
Philadelphia, Mr. W. H. Mclnerny of
Hawaii, and Mr. E. K. Somborn. During
the day Col. Parker and his colleagues
called upon President
who gave them a most cordial
welcome, and in the course of a long
talk asked many questions relative to
our new insular possessions in the Pacific.
Col. Parker and his colleague.
Judge Kepoikai, are men of the highest
position, and both having native
blood in their veins, their influence
with the Kanakas is unlimited. They
have cast their foftunes with the Republican
party because they believe
that under the administration of Mc-Kinley
the Islanders will be fairly
dealt with, and that a continuation of
the present administration means permanent
prosperity for the the "Paradise
of the Pacific."
A Curious Spectacle.
The spectacle of over 100
on their knees calling upon the Lot J
to protect American missionaries from
the atrocious cruelties of their brothers
the Boxers was witnessed Sunday night
at the Chinese Mission in Race street,
Philadelphia. Old men and young men,
some mere boys, united in this prayer,
all of them knowing that they were
calling down the wrath of God upon
brothers and friends in China. Philadelphia
SURVEYS IN CHINATOWN.
Old Corners Reestablished, but King
Street not Widened.
The survey of Chinatown aud the
burned district has been completed.
All the old street corners are reestal J
lished and the streets laid out as they
were before the plague. Considerable
iudiguation is expressed at the intention
of the Government to allow rebuilding
on the old lines of King street.
In the burned district King street is
only fifty-six feet wide and the need of
tw o sixty foot roadways clear through
town is felt by everyone. The brick
bnildings standing on King street on
the north of Nuuanu are old and
only good for about ten years more of
occupation. Several citizens have
spoken of the matter but at present no
one setmis able to order any change.

THE IROQUOIS BACK

Found a Good Place for tbe

Midway Island on Sunday, after an
absence of over two months, surveying

search for a suitable landing place
for the Pacific cable was begun. Afer

that the cable station be placed
on Sand Island. It was found to be
practicable to bring the cable from tue

Some Japanese in the employ of a
Japanese company were found on the
Islands. They were getting birds' skins
and feathers for shipment to Japan.
The climate of the islands was foun 1
to be a good deal cooler than that nf
Honolulu and was very healthful and
pleasant. Birds and fish abound in
great numbers and variety, and the
men of the party had much sport
shooting and fishing.
The bones of the vessels Wanderins
Minstrel and General Siegel, wrecked
on the islands several years ago, are
still to be seen, and the anchor of the
former vessel was recovered and
brought back home.
During the survey a total of 16,192
soundings were made. Inside the reef
surrounding the islands the soundings
were made by the small boat. Outside
the Iroquois did the work.
The reef inclosing the islands is
quite wide in places and the surveyors
were able to work upon it. The entrance
to Wells harbor was found to
have an average width of one hundred
feet and to be very difficult to navi
gate on account of the rocks. Inside
the harbor is full of dangerous rocks
and coral formation, which have all

THE NUMBERING OF
Enamel Numbers of Uncertain Color
Coming Over by Sailing
W". A. Wall, the assistant in charge of
the surveying department, explained
the numbering of the houses along the
streets yesterday. "The numbers that
we have ordered will be quite plain;
they are about two inches high, quite
plain and the department did the best
for the people, as it is believed. Uniformity
aud expediency were considered.
The plan for the numbering is
all considered and arranged. It is all
'What is it? It is not wholly on the
mxndred system. We have 100 for
tain spaces. The 100 system is not
wholly adaptable here. In the citv
proper we have taken fifteen feet of
space for a number. Of course, we
have adopted the system of putting
odd numbers ou one side and even
numbers on the other.
"We have surveyed and mapped the
city from Diamond Head to Kahaui Ki
on the one side and from the waterfront
to the government electric light
"The numbers which the department
has ordered to place on the houses are
on the way. They were ordered in
good time, but on a sailing vessel, which
it was hoped would get in. here before
this time, but has failed to come.'
It ij understood that the survey de-
partment is now ahead of the postal
department, wnicn doesnt appear to
be ready yet, either with boxes or carriers
to collect the mail.
