Rev. 1". Richlcr, pastor of the German
Lutheran Church at I.ihuc, Knuai, has kindly
sent the Press the following statement : " In
answer to the question of one interested in the
great Luther-I'estival, concerning the living
relations of the reformer, which was made
known in the last issue of the Saturday Press.
I beg leave to make the following guaranteed
statements in your esteemed paper : The
story of a direct descendant of Dr. Martin
Luther existing as postman in llerlin is a
sheer invention. There are indeed a crcat
many relations of Luther still living, but none
ol tlicm arc lineal descendants of Martin
Luther. The direct line has become extinct
long ago, at least in its male members. As the
Luther-Kcast in Wittenberg, September last,
there were assembled on special invitation just
a dozen men of the Luther family, livinc in
different positions in Germany and Lngland ;
but they belonged partly to the line of Luther's
uncle Hans, called 'the Small One,' and partly
to that of Martin's brother Jacob. These
Statements aie based Din a notice published
in a famous German theological journal by a
Uithcriuc himseir, tredenck Luther in Schiui
cflehausen. A genealogical table of the whole
Luther family, which would show all this
more plainly, was aliout so lie edited."

The bad condition of King street and
W.iikiki mail, since the recent kona, Mutinies
admirably Ihe prevailing badness "of road
building and rcniring. Instead of a slightly
convex surface much of the road presents a
Knillvcly concise surface, the dirt having
accumulated along the sides so as to drain the
water Into the centre of the road, or cause it lo
lie on level or slightly depressed places, instead
of being led into the ditchrs. Of course
wherever a puddle is, travel liegins to form a
rut. Lach succeeding rain incrciscs Ihe area
of the puddle and the depth of Ihe rut. King
slrcct is not )ct impassable, but it is be
coming dangerous to travel over it faster than
a jog trot; and the Waikiki road is not much
better. If the simple and sure hws of Macadam
might be faithfully followed, King street and
its continuation could be made one of the
finest dtives hi the world.
After the paragraph about the condition of
King street was written, an indignant gentle
man of mature years but most vigorous voice
entered the editorial rooms of this chaste
political journal and poured into the ear of the
city editor the- following tirade: "The con
dition of He-retania street is shameful, sir,
simply shameful 1 I wanted to go out in an
express yesterday and the driver said 'c'd 'avc
to charge me double as I was a 'evy man, sir,
and he wouldn't be rctionsible for the springs,
sir; think of that, sir. The road is full of
chuck holes, sir, full of chuck holes; and I
tlon t sec what (hose as owns property there is
thinkin' of, sir the king and Ned Rush and
such folks. No, I don't." The city editor
laid it was too bad and cheerfully referred him
to Messrs. Hart and Gulick.
"There is a tramway on Hcrctania street;
why does not the minister of the interior send
out the cars, get some rock anil make the
road passable?" asks a corrcstiondent.
Tlir iMlr Sturm.
The following account of the late storm may
be interesting to meteorologists on the other
islands : Monday was an exceptionally fine
day, wind N. 1. hauling to the eastward, bar
ometer falling from 30.00 to 29.88, but not a
cloud in the sky. Tuesday, wind shifted sud
denly to west, blowing very fresh, the bar
ometer falling to 29.75, hut rising slightly as
Ihe wind subsided in the evening. Wednes
day, moderate from S. W. Thursday, a gale
with rain squalls from S. S. W., barometer
fell to 29.55 al 4 P- M. the lowest since Janu
ary, lS8t. Friday, thick, wind moderate from
west, barometer from 29.67 to 29.60. Satur
day, gale from S. W. with heavy rain squalls,
Kirometer fell again to 29.57, a sudden shift
to N. W. at 10 P. St. with very frequent light
ning. Sunday, very light north wind with
drizzling rain, thermometer 66 at 2 rM., a
very low record for that time of day. Cleared
in the night, which was a bad sign, and though
Monday was a fine sunny day the barometer
average of 29.78 gave promise of more rain
which fell on Tuesday from the N. N. U,
wind shifting at times to west again. liar
ometcr on Wednesday, the 19th, 29.85. Total
rainfall (at Punahou) from Ilth lo 19th, 3.42
inches. The foregoing' particulars have liecn
obtained through the courtesy of Mr. C. J.
Lyons of the government survey office. That
office will be greatly obliged to persons on the
other islands who will furnish carefully record
ed observations taken during the recent storm
or in the future.
The closing exercises at Kawaiahao Semi
nary, last Tuesday and Wednesday, were well
attended by parents and friends. The pupils
evidenced good progress In their itndies, as
shown by the various examinations. The
proficiency of Miss Ester Kauepuu this year's
graduate and at present a pupil-teacher was
well shown by a long and searching examina
tion in Greek history. Among the rhetorical
cxcrcitcs some Christmas declamations by
twelve little girls on Tuesday, and some reci
tations from L'vangelinc by six older girls on
Wednesday wcreespccially commended. There
are at present 97 pupils, divided as follows; in
grammar grades, 32; in primary grades, 40;
in kindergarten and beginning grades, 25. The
teacher remain substantially as before. Mis',
Helen S. Norton, the principal, will be awjy

Fatal .Irrtilritt on Hitiml.
Under dale of the 13th instant a corrcspon
ilcnl at Kilauca, Kauai, writes : " We have
lo leport a very serious accident which hap
pencil lo one of our Portuguese laWcrs, by
the name of I'rancisco Raimzo, yesterday, anil
since then has proved fatal. We commenced
grinding yesterday morning, and this man was
placed at Ihe cane carrier. Lvcry thing went
nicely until 8:30 o'clock, when, for the want
of cane, the carrier was Mopped for a few
moments, and the man attempted to pass to
the other side of the carrier, when his foot
slipjicd and passed into the mill, and his right
leg was crushed nearly to the knee. The mill
at the time was empty and the engines were
promptly Mopped and rcvcrsetl, and the man
taken out and removed to his home. Doct
ISorlaml was immediately sent for and arrival
in a few moments, and on examination dis
covered that the right leg was terribly
Iiceratctl into a shaiclcss mass, which ncccs
sitated amputation about two inches alnjvc the
knee. The left foot was fearfully crushed.
The doctor amputated the little toe, sewed
up the foot the lust he could, but Rapozo,
being a ma of aliout sixty years and not very
strong, the physician did not have much hopes
ot his recovery; he, however, lingered along
till 3 o'clock this morning, when death put an
end to his suflcrings. He leaves a widow and
four children, all but one are at w"0rk for the
company. Already a subscription list has
lieen started and, no doubt, there will be a
nice sum raised for the family. We hear and
read so much aliout government physicians
that perhaps it will not lie- amiss to say that
Doctor liorland deserves great credit for the
careful, attention given to this man. Mr.
Horner, the manager, had everything done
that was possible to relieve the sufferer and
assist the family, but Raiozo was too old a
man to withstand the shock."

One of the saddest cases in connection with
the spread of leprosy is that of Rev. D.
Kcaweamahi, the successful and lieloved
Istor of the Hawaiian church of Wailuku,
Maui. He was a student at the North Pacific
Missionary Institute, the assistant of Rev. H.
II. Parker, and an efficient helper of Mr.
Hallenlicck in his revival work before he
accepted the call of the Wailuku church, to
which he Ins ministered for a year and a half
with great acceptance. When the disease
first made its appearance on the face it was
supposed to be erysiielas, and he came lo
Honolulu for medical treatment. Every
physician who has examined him pronounces
it unmistakably a case of leprosy in an aggra
vated form. It is one of the most painful in
stances of the spread of this dreadful malady
which lias ever come to public notice. The
pleasant parsonage the people of Wailuku
have built and furnished must be abandoned.
The usefulness which his labors, so popular
and so successful, had given reason to hope
would be permanent and increasing is not
only cut short at once, but changed lo a living
death for no one knows how many vcars.
The delightful social intercourse with Iricnds,
who enjoyed his genial spirit, must all be
given up for a life or seclusion to be forever
barred from companionship with old friends
and shunned as would be the most noisome
pest. Is Ihe government doing its duty by
this class of unfortunate sufferers? Has any
adequate provision lieen made for their neces
sities, not to say their comfort? Are Chris
fian people doing all they can to express their
sympathy for these poor, 'adlictnl ones? Arc
we doing what we can in Ihe way of preven

high chief on Ilutaritari hail been making roaiL,
He is living with one wife, though not the one
he first selected when he put away his ly.
gamous harem. Hegoc to church regularly
with his body-guard of thirty stair-otticer. He
ha signed a treaty entering into a confedera

The high chief of Apcuuiiu has gone lo
Kurio, but a good work is going on still. The
while trader on Maiana, Mr. Coy, ha been of
great service to the missionary work. There
had been fighting on Marakei, and sixteen
native were reported killed. At Tapilcuea
the native mo cordially welcomed tuck
Kapu, Ihe Hawaiian missionary. . They had
maintained religious services every Sunday,
had enacted law against rum drinking and
licentiousness, and were anxious to hate
school established once mote on their island.

casedectdcl In 1879 by the 5prente Court of
the united Slate, ami Mr Juttke lleld for the
court y! "Of the right of rettdcnl tat

To deny this rigid lo a taxpayer would be to
say that there It no remedy and no way by
wriicri a minister of Ihe crown canliepretcnled

shadowy and uncertain lo be thought of a an
adequate remedy. If only the attorney general
can promote such a matter, Ihe antwer It Hut
there hat lieen no attorney general sine May

general who it one of the cabinet to commence
proceeding against hit own colleat'tie.
A mlnlKcr it rtsjiontlble lo the king for hit
act ami he it alto reKintih!c lo ihe oplc
loruiciallhlul discharge of hit duties. The
resn,ndcnt' motion lo quash, which It more
protcrly a demurrer, is overruled.
Having given this matter considerable study
ami attention and having arrival at a clear
and decided opinion ujKin the question involved,
I give my decision now knowing alvj thai
delay would lie Injunout lo the respondent
I remark here that the rieltlonert are not
amenable to criticism for having brought this
action V) late. They could have no standing
In court until the act complained of was
aluiut lo lie committed, and if proceeding! had
liecn commenced months ago it could lie wcl'
answered that the application was premature
and the rctmdciil was not alout to act In the
manner alleged. Moreover, if Ihe act com
plained of II illegal at all, it wat ut at the In
ception and continues so throughout ami it
loses none of its illegality by lapse of lime.
I rcmirk here that the ability of the govern
ment to borrow- moncy-yndcr the Loan Act of
1882 does not affect the vitality or existence of
the government. The authority was given by
this act to liorrow money for certain specific
purpose named in the act and by section
"no part of Ihe money (thus raised) shall, on
any pretense, lie paid, used or aiplied, direct
ly or indirectly, either temporarily or other-
wise to or for any public use or purpose other
tlian Ihe purposes reiectivcly to which the
same is hereby directed to lie applied."
I presume the legislature felt that the ordin
ary resource of the government would lie
sufficient for it ordinary expenditures and so
have not authorized Ihe borrowing of money
for its ordinary exienditurcs.
bo my decision in this case cannot affect the
life or credit of the government.
tl'U.l .1 I . r ..
iiiciiici trie uonot 01 inc government have
or have not been difficult of sale is foreign to
this issue. If they hajc not U-cn eagerly
sought for, possibly it Is because the interest,
lieing only six per cent, is too low, being three
per cent, lower than the legal rate of interest.
The authority of ihe minister of finance in
the premises Is to lie found within the four
corners of this act.
Section 1 authorizes the minister of finance
under the direction of the king in cabinet
council to borrow on Ihe credit of the Haw
aiian Government during a period of three
years, sums of money not exceeding two mil
lion dollars, and the bonds lobe Usucd there
for, are (1st) to lc iucd at not Itst tia.i tar.
(2d) Ihey are to bear interest not exceeding six
ier cent, (3d) they arc to be exempt from gov
ernment taxes, ( ilh) Ihey are to be redeemable
in not less tlun five nor more than twenty-five
years and (5th) Ihey are jay able principal and
interest in United States golJ eoin or itt eauiv
alent. The lionds must be issued in exact
compliance with ihe law. They must be
issued, says the act, at not less than par.
V hat is par ? All the lexicographers say that
par is "exact equivalence without discount or
premium," that is, there must lie received for
these bonds the exact equivalent of the sum
secured to be paid by Ihem. They are to be
paid in United States geU roiu or itt equivalent
and this must theroforc lie received for them.
If a promissory note calls for pavment of
,500 sterling, the par value would be 500
sterling and nothing less. Now, if the minis
ter of finance proposes to dispose of these
lionds for anything less than their face in
United Statcyjold coin or its equivalent, it is
violation ot the law. It matters not if the
silver half dollars which the respondent pro
poses to take for the bonds lie current as
money in this realm. The law says most dis
tinctly that Ihe bonds must not be sold for less
than par and as the silver halfdollarare far less
in intrinsic value than their face value in
United States gold coin, to sell the bonds thus
is selling them for less than par.
The law of this kingdom makes United
States gold, the standard of value and lecal
tender. This law must lie administered by
ihe court even if the community and Ihe gov
ernment bv common consent icnore its exis-
tence. No law is a dead letter to the court.
I may here say that the Act or 8& providing
for a national coinage, authorize tln.-miimtet
of finance, "to purchase gold and silver bullion
a-r'M rrnj- mouejrt u-AieA may from time to time
A r the treatury and lo cause to Iw coined
therefrom gold and silver coins" of eoual
weight and fineness with United States eokl
and silver coins of the same denominations.
That is, foreign coin already In circulation
might thus tie changed into Hawaiian coin and
this the legislature thought would not probably
distuili the currency very seriously. Silver is
a commodity fluctuating in value and it has
been declining in value for some year and Ihe
standard half dollar of the United State is by
the latest quotation not worth In United
Stale gold much more than 40 cent, ttciog
of the opinion that Ihe bomb are proposed to
vk ivsuoi oy inc respondent lor les than par,
I grant the w rit of mandamus.
I ought to ay further thai the yoth article
ol the constitution requite the supreme couit
lo give it opinion to the king and the cabinet
"uon important Ruction of law ami upon
solemn occasions. " Ami Ihe justice of the
supreme court are alway ready to give their
opinion! Ip Ihe government when important
step aie contemplated. In this instance the
opinion of the couit wa not asked.
On the opening of the sikcuI banco term of
the supreme couit but Thursday, Chief Justice
Judd said he desJretl to call Ihe attention of ihe
lur lo certain slight Infringements of the rule
of strict couit etiquette. He had no doubt
those Utfringemenl were thouehtlo. and
tpoke of Ihem only that they might be avofted
In Ihe niosl pleasant way. He mentioned the
thoughtless occasional ptacticc of searching on
the desk for court tuiicrs, instead of asking ihe
clerk for them; and, per contra, of returning
litem ilardily. Smoking In the clctk's olEce,
the library or the court room wa considered
iinpioiwr, and memlier of the bar were asked
