Ihr I'linny Ailrrntnrrs of a Honolulu
Havifig occation not long since to
attend one of our district courts, I was
much impressed with the proceedings
and think that a hrief description of the
manner and form of the justice there
administered may be of interest, cum
though it he a dry subject,
The blind goddess was represented
by a native Hawaiian of the liliu type,
i. e, one of the light skinned, fair
haircd kind, or vih.it may be culled a
Kanaka blonde. His dimensions, in
round nuinlers, were about 5 feet 3,
by 3 feet 5. He had no neck, but in
Ik u thereof a succession of folds, which
extended well up into his kick liair
or, rather, where his back hair ought to
have been, for it was cropped so close
that sccnyngly nothing short of a search
warrant or a special act of providence
would find or ever induce it to grow
again. His face was smooth shaven
with the exception of his uppper lip
.which was armed with a stumpy grey
moustache about V, of an inch in
length, constructed after the pattern of
a magnet encrustctl with iron filings.
At intervals of about thirty seconds the
whole bristly structure rose up and en
folded the lower portion of his breath
ing apjwratus, accompanied by a gigan
tic sniff, which reminded one of a
whale straining little fishes for supper,
or of the sucking noise made by a
pump valve when it docs not fit. All
that was visible of his attire, was a
air' of thick yellow corduroy panta
loons and a thin black alapaca coat
buttoned close about the folds of his

John was a poor little weazened,
dncd-up Kanaka, apparently of about
50 years of age. The whites of his
eyes were intended for a man about,
two sizes larger than he was, and as
they slowly wandered about, with an
anxious, inquiring, expectant, grieved
look, seemed to be ever seeking, never
willing mcir proper owner. He was
bare footed and dressed in a worn pair
of blue denim trousers and a faded
grecnandblack checked woolen shirt,
the flowing xrtions of which like the
Maid of Athens' tresses, were uncon
fincd. 'Hie plea was "not guilty." The
prosecuting officer had not examined
his witness, and did not know what his
ca.se was, and therefore proceeded to
question the principal witness prior to.
swearing nun, ami eiicneil tlie fact that
lie had bought a bottle of liquor from
the prisoner for the sum of $1.
The sheriff, with an approving "you'll
do," told the judge he was ready to go
on. With a snif that in honor of the
occasion was louder and more pro
longed and more like a pump valve
than usual, the iudce solemnly raised
his hand, and in a sepulchural tone of
voice said : " Uo you, solemnly swear
Inifore Cod that you will testify that
John Ailama sold you a bottle of
okolchao for one dollar?" "Ae"
responded the witness. "That will do,
you sit down over there," and without
further examination or cross examina
tion the witness melted into the audi
eijce. The policeman who had set the
snare for unfortunate John next took
the st.nu), and proudly related how he
had laid for the prisoner, who was a
bad man, and how he, the virtuous
representative of the law, a la the house
that jack built, had supplied the money
to hire the man to buy the liquor that
was to put John in a felon's cell and
vindicate the law.
During all this time the judge had
satjjbsorbed in the contemplation of a
secondhaud yellow-jacket's nest at
tached to the rafters of the court house,
from which lie at intervals rrmnw..l
.rfE?,vhis eyes to transcribe a few hiero-
clyphics upon a sheet of fools-can. lohn
had no attorney and after the prosecu
ting officer had finished enumerating
the iniquities of the prisoner, his honor
sat, amid a breathless silence, for a full
minute, watching the yellow Jacket's
nesi, as 11 111 apprehension that a stray
wasp might still be lingering in the
recesses of its old home.
The silence was broken only bv the
measured cadences of the pump'valvc
action and the accompaniments then
suddendly fixing his eagle glance iqwn
the prisoner he solemnly said : "John
Ailama, I command you to stand ui."
John's sad, slow, cjqxictant eyes twice
encircled the hall of justice; there he
scratched his head violently with both
nfands. His right foot mechanically
rose and carressed his left shin and as
mechanically returned to the door
again; then the left foot tendered the
same kind offices to the right shin.
The whites of his eyes had been con
tinually growing larger, until they were
now-big enough for a man four sizes
larger tlian he was. In fact that side
of his head apjKarcd to be permanently
monopolized by them. Then he soAly
answered " for one dollar." " For one
dollar-" echoed the judge as lie again
fastened his eves on the yellow jacket
nest and refreshed himself by taking
scleral sniffs in rapid succession.
"John Ailama," said the judge,
again fixing his eyes on the prisoner,
having apparently satisfied himself that
there was no imminent danger from
thcwasii nest "We all know that you
are a lolo, and could'nt make that okolchao-all
b)ourself, who hcliH-'dvou?"
John executed a revised edition of his
former programme, except that his eye
balls were a little bigger, and a litttle
more pleading in their expression
'then he, said with a sigh, " that man
over there ""which man ?" "tlut one
tlwre with the maipake," said John
IKMnting his linger at one of 'six men
who were sandwiched upon a bench
iMemksl to hold four. At this, point the
telephone bell which was in the rear and

the telephone was there, and was trying
to make the rcporjer hear by yelling
over the mountain, during which all
the small gossip of the District was dc
i.iiicu lor the benefit or. the rqwrtcr
and the edification of the court house
After this interruption, the judge re
vived himself by slapping his head
smartly first on one side and then on
the other, with the onen nalms of his
nnrui then he said : " I his is a court
of justice. This court does not want
to give a decision without beinir, sure.
The c idence is very plain , the prisoner
admits tlut lie sold the okolchao ; but
how does this court know but what that
is water there in that bottle and not oko
lehao," and he glanced sternly around
the room as if to sec if there was any
body present who would dare 10 say
that it was not water. " This court
has been to the legislature, and does
not know anything about such things.
It could not tell whether that is water
or okolchao "then turning to a vener
able native attorney he continued.
" you are an officer of this court. You
hae taken an oath to assist this court
therefore by virtue of the power ves
ted in me, and in the name of the Ha
waiian Government I command you to
taste the liquid in that bottle and tell
this court what it is." The attorney
arose solemnly worried the cork out
with his teeth, and lifting the bottle on
high allowed the fluid to gurgle, gurgle,
gurgle down his throat amidst the most
intense interest of bench, bar and spec
tators. Apparently his sense of taste
was not situated irt'his mouth, or else
his mouth extended some distance
down, for it was quite a little while
before the bottle resumed its normal
position. Having wiped his mouth
with the back of his hand, beginning
with his elbow and winding up with the
ends of his fingers, he cleared his throat
twice with a prolonged emphasis, and
sucked all the wind Iwtwecn his teeth
that he could find in his immediate
vicinity, he smacked his lips as only a
genuine Kanaka can, and said, " upon
my oath as an officer of this court, and
as a eood subject of the Kinc. I can
not say that this is water, It is okolc
hao, and very good okolchao too, and
he cast a lingering affectionate glance
at the bottle."
Several hieroghyphics were added to
the foolscap, a rapid succession of sniffs
was indulged in, and the yellow jackets'
nest again underwent a close scrutiny.
Then leaning over the railing his honor
said: "This court is very much pleased
with the evidence of the last witness,
but this a court of justice and wc want
to be perfectly certain that the contents
of that bottle is okolchao and'not water
because they both look alike, therefore
Mr. Sheriff, I command you as an
officer of the government to swear that
this is okolchao." Upon the sheriff
suggesting that he could not tell until
he had sampled the bottle, the court
agreed that this was a reasonable state
ment of the proposition, and the sheriff
duplicated the performance of "the at
torney and likewise agreed that it was
good akolehao. The judge scribbled
industriously for several moments then
looking up he said : " This is a very
important case and requires dclibera

hurry to go back to Honolulu, there-
lore 1 postpone my judgment until to

One of the most interesting visits
in Athens used to be to a small, plain
house in one of the least frequented
quarters of the city, surrounded by
dirty, unpaved streets and squalid
houses, among which it was nobte.
The front door stood always open till
far into the night ; no servant or porter
was there, ami no one who came rang
a bell. The visitor entered, passed
through the hall of the ground floor
between two casts of monuments re
cently discovered on the Street of
I ombs, and mounted the staircase to
the first lloor .antechamber, where
stood generally an attendant not al
ways, however sometimes a group of
Greeks discussing eagerly-some topic of
ini u.ij , uiu nuune uuuecu ine comer
until he asked for directions which the
habitues never did. The visitor passed
into a long reception room, with a
table in the centre, on which were a
lamp and a huge pot of tobacco with
cigarette pacrs. Along one side of
the room was a row of chairs, along the
other a divan, at the end of which, in
the corner remotest from the door, was
an arm chair. When the genius loci
was at home these chairs and this divan
were generally occupied by a crowd,
motely and democratic, of his adhcr
ents and clients, who came there even
ing after evening and mostly sat in
silence from half-past 6 to 10 v. jr., and
then went away, saying simply good
night, to come again the next night and
repeat the ceremony. In the chairs,
and on the portion of the divan nearest
the arm-chair, sat those who had busi
ness for the evening. At the other end
of the room was a door that opened
into a small library, which was also the
room for cabinet councils; and on
evenings when the council used to be
held there the crowd of clients waited
till half-past 8, or thereabouts, when
the door opened and a smiling, bowing,
good-humored little man came out and
passed down to his arm-chair, giving
hand-shakes and salutations right and
left to all familiars always the same :
imperturbable, jesting, bantering, laugh
ing, gracious to friend or foe, most cor
dial to the latter if-anything; genial,
amiable, and, no matter what was hap
pening, apparently at one with fortune.
There was a merry twinkle in his eve.
a crafty side-look, a curious manner of
attention and deference to every one
with whom he, talked, which was a
most subtle kind of flattery to plain
people ; and when you had talked an
hour with him, differ as much as you
might with" him violently, abusively
even he was the same impcrtubablc,
genial, cordial man, unmoved by your
umcrness ana your compliments alike,
and you finally came to the conclusion
that neither his words" to you nor yours
to him had for him any meaning what
ever. This little wily, watchful, smiling
man was Coumoundouros, a politican
who had in him all the making of a
statesman except what honesty would
have given, but who for twenty years
has been the leading spirit of what
answers to politics in Greece. He was
a man of Mcsscnc, and entered politi
cal life in the most humble offices and
poor. A deputy, minister, president of
the council, he has been longer in pub
lic life than any man now living in
Greece, and too long for his own repu
tation. He began well, and I remem
ber him when the Cretan insurrection
of 1866 brought all the best minds of
Greece forward to sustain bv anv and
all sacrifices the struccle. and Coum
oundouros took and kept direction of
ot the affair until the king, timid and
utterly blind to the importance of the
crisis, yielding to any and all diplo
matic pressure irom certain ot the pow
ers, notably Russia, dismissed him,
with his cabinet, and then dissolved the
assembly, which, with such a unani
mity as has rarely been seen in Greece,
determined to stand or fall with the
ministry. The country was stirred to
the furthest corner and entirely in sym
pathy with the ministry, and if at that
moment Coumoundouros had given
the word, King George would have
taken the first steamer for. F.urope.
The king had made a (cupe d'etat with
no one behind him but Dulgaris and
the Russian Minister. The excitable
Greeks were boiling over, and the king
was publicly cursed and insulted.
"Why dont you make a revolution and
drive him out ?" I asked Coumoun
douros. "Why. Because Europe has
already so bad an opinion of us that if
we were to make another revolution
they would give us up as unfit for any
government We can't afford to sink
any lower in the opinion of Europe."
ium so, wun a inreciourths ma ontv
of the people ready for any lead he
chose to give, he gave up the jxiwer,
permitted the king to call in Dulgaris
to make a new assembly, to keep
Coumoundouros )ut of which he was
6utlawed on some trumped-up charges,
and compelled to take refuge in a
stronghold of his country. Here he
was besieged by the troops until the
elections were over, excluding him
from the new assembly.
Had he died then, he would-have
been one of the heroes of modern
Greece. He had so well organized
and carried on the insurrection in Crete
though it was U-gun against his
judgment that it had worn out all the
best generals of the Turkish Army.
Ismail, Mehemct KIritly, Hussein Avnl,
Omar, Reshid, backed by j 1,000
Egyptian and nearly 100,000 Turkish
troops, regulars and irregulars (eighty
full battalions of the former having
been under the command of Omar).
had all come and done their worst, and
gone back battled, worn out, more by
Parthian rbght than Sjiartan fighting,
and the Turkish Government was in
despair. Insurrections were preparing
in many quarters, and six months more
would have seen the precipitations of
the Eastern question, with Greece in
the lead. It didn't suit -Russia, and
the Russian Minuter at Athens .has
orders to stop it unless Goumoundouro
would accept the lead ol the Czar, and
let the Hellenic plans be Hibsidiary to
inose 01 ine emperor. He refuted, and
was dwmitMd. Yet o treat was the
tfftimliy id netting the crisis that after
the Coumoundouros Ministry had gone
out, the Russian Minister, M. Noikoff,
came to him and ofTcrcd to replace the
ministry if he would accept the Russian
plans, and they would carry the work
on together. Coumoundouros replied
that he would never sacrifice the inter
ests of Greece to those of Russia con
cerning a matter of Greek internal
policy. Coumoundouros went into
practical exile. Had that ended his
political career, he had been a happy
He, of course, came back to power
as soon as the people were free to elect
again, but he came back in some way a
changed man, thirsty for power; and
thenceforward he bent and truckled and
connived at corruption and intrigue till
he was the most pliant of ministers to
the corps diplomatique, and the most
largely followed by all the rascals and
thieves of Greek politics of all the
publicists of Athens and the provinces.
The next great Greek crisis that
which came on with the conference of
Constantinople found him playing the
part which JIulgaris had acted 111 1S68,
while Tricottpis was in his old character
of defender of the Greek policy and
interests. It happened that I went to
sec him again when the question of ac
ceptance 01 the compromise on the
frontier question was in the balance.

the dictation or the king and against

peared, his interests. This time it was
1 iiiuujhs who rciuseo to assent to in
surrection or accept foreign dictation,
and when the new elections came
coumoundouros was swept out of
power and influence with a unanimity
never before seen in Greece. He had
typified and exemplified in political life
all the worst and some of the best
traits of the Greek character, and he

self not to be the clever and far-seeing
man the country had taken him for.
M." Coumoundouros entered public
life in 1853, and the first notable inci
dent of his career was the burning of
ine records 01 tne commune under his
care, by which he is accused of h.ivinn
profited indirectly as, indeed, public
allium says nc nas done all througl
ma iiuuiiu me, so mat ne has accumu
lated a fortune which, being mainly in
real estate and hence easy to estimate,
is known to amount to 2,000,000
francs, though he always decjaicd
that it was heavily morttraired. His
good luck is contrasted with that
of 1 ricoupis, who having begun with
500,000 francs, left him by' his father,
has already spent the half of it in
his public service, which no one
even in Athens has ever accused
of the least shade of corruption. Of
coumoundouros it was said, as has
been said of other men in other coun
tries, that he himself never stole, but
cared not how much his friends stole.
But when a man whose office emolu
ments were never as prime minister even
uuuti.- j.,uuu a year, accumulated a
fortuneof $400,000 without ever having
ucen Known 10 cmrjarK in any business
but politics, the Greeks have a clear
right to assume that 'he prodded by
his friends' thieving.
The foregoing was written in March
of this year to the New York Nation
by its correspondent at Florence
formerly for a long time resident in
Athcn. The striking similarity of
many points in the career of the illus
