Story of Case.
It appears that on April 7. 1894,
after the marriage of the said Irene
with thp'stid f!. A. Rrown . and thn
-birth of her three children, two of
twnom are now surviving in the per
.'sons of George and Francis, A. F.
jUdd. one of the executors of the
. last will of John li. deceased, the
8Uch guardian, brought a bill id
equity before a circuit Judge of the
FlnV circuit, for himself and a
next friend of the said Irene and hec
saii surviving children, against th
sajd c. A. Brown; and that there?
charge as guardians of the said Irene-
upon ner marriage; out inat, upon oe
will, believed that they were therebyj
constituted not only' executors, of the
will and guardians of the said Irene,"
but also trustees with the right to the
control of her estate daring her life;
and that under and by said will pro-;
vision, was made for the children ou
said Irene and also for the support of;
68 id Irene, and it was important to ob
cum. a cousirucuoa oi suca. provisions;
and the relative rights under said wii
cf such minor children and the said,
gaid Q A fiw)wn m
to the said estate, and to the fine
aforesaid under said will, and prayed
among other things, "that the terms
and provisions of said will and the du
ties and obligations imposed upon the
said A. F. Judd and S. B. Dole as afore
said be defined and determined."
Comes Before Perry. ' r "
After proceedings before Judge
Cooper, a circuit Judge of such cir
cuit, ,who resigned his o'ffice before
reaching a decision, the matter came
up before Judge Perry of the same
circuit, who, on the 16th day of April,
1906, reserved certain questions of law
tc the Supreme Court,' as follows:
1. Was a trust created in the prop
erty devised to Irene li by the will of
her father, John li?
2. If such a trust was created, is
the trust still is forcer! rene having
married, attained majority, and ZiaC
Israe of said marriage, which issue
still Survive? '
S. If such a trust still exists, is
the Interest- of Irene li Brown "under
the same absolute or for life only?
4. If, such a trust stil lexists, is
It Etich a trust that the court will upon
the proper motion order an immediate
conveyance of the property to Irene
5. Has Irene li Brown a fee simple
title in said property, or is her estate
enc for life only? I
6. Was an estate in perpetuity !
creat by" said will, and if so was its
effect to vest the estate ahsolutely in
Irene li Brown?
7. If there are any remainders in
said property, are they vested or con
tingent and in what perron?
S. What legal and equitable estates
have the several parties-plaintiff and
defendants under the wll o' John li
and the circumstances shown by the
pleadings and evidence?
The Supreme Court, on the 4th day
of May 1897. ruled that the first ques
tion should be answered in the affirm
ative; that as to the second question,
the trust became extinct upon the mar
riage and majority of the devicee
Irene, and that as to the fifth question
the devisee Irene had an estate in fee
simple in the prooerty devised to her
by her father's will. It was consider
ed by the court that it was unneces
sary to decide the other questions, in
view of the rulings already made. Xo
further proceedings appear to rave
been taken. The case was not re
manded to the Circuit Court nnd no
decree was entered in either court.
This case will be hereafter referred to
as the first case.

the Fifth District last night, as the
(morning paper says, Edward Moreno,
'a member of the executive commit-
tee of the club, stated this forenoon.
) "It is true that a petition was signed
by sixty members for the removal of
Solomon Mahelona from the secretary-
ship, but the club has held no meet
ing to consider that matter. The ex-
ecutive committee has gone on record
to ignore Mahelona and all his move
ments in the present campaign, and
that is all there is to it."
in equity to declare and execute a
trust was filed in the same Circuit
Court by the said A. F. Judd, as next
friend of George and Francis, minors,
against C. A. Brown, John A. Magoon
and Irene; which will, after narrating
the history of the proceedings relat
ing to the estate of the said John li,
deceased, alleged that the said will
directed that if the said Irene should
die, having borne children, the said
property should descend to her chil
dren, but that she should be the first
heir, meaning and intending thereby
that during her life she should have
the use and benefit of the said prop
erty, and that her children, by virtue
of said will, are "the absolute owners
in fee" of the same, subject only to
their said mother's life estate; and
further alleged the divorce of the said
Irene from the said defendant C. A.
Brown, and the execution of a deed of
conveyance by them of, the "said prop
erty" in trust for the organization of
a corporation to hold the same and
to deliver one-third of the shares to
the said Irene, one-third to the said
Brown, and a third to the plaintiffs,
which corporation was duly organized
under, the name of The John li Estate
Limited, and delivery of shares made
accordingly, except that one - share of
those to be issued to said Ct A. Brown,
was caused by him to be issued in the!
name of J. A. Magoon, one of the de
fendants hereto; and contended that,
the defendants held soch shares sub-;
ject to a trust' that upon Irene's death,
Che same shall be assigned to the
alaintiffs. ... ,
The. bill thereupon contended that,
no legal adjudication had been mad 6)
of said questions of. law, referring to
the reserved questions upon which,
the Supreme Court had ruled as . set
forth above, for the following reasons,
1. No decree was made in any of
2. In all such proceedings, the chil
dren and Irene were represented by
the same counsel, although their inter:
ests were conflicting.
3. No court which -was organized
as required by the Constitutipn of the
Hepublic of Hawaii had obtained - ap
pellate Jurisdiction of any of the said
reserved questions of lflwrf v .
4. The jurisdiction of the said Su
preme Court concerning the construc
tion "of the said will, if It ever exist
ed, ended upon its determination that
no trust was in existence concerning
the said property.
6. All matters of law. arising and
pending in the first case before Judge
Cooper were-required -by law to be
decided by him and by no other court
or judge, and the same, nothing hav
ing been decided by him, were not
lawfully presented or decided by any
other court or judge.
1 tt. There was no statutory or other
authority to reserve questions of law
in the first case for the opinion of the
Supreme Court and such reserved

by them as aforesaid, and that they

The bill was demurred to on gener
al and special grounds, one of the lat
ter being to the effect that "It does
not appear that any of the property
or estate of the plaintiffs was con

them (Irene and C. A. Brown) or by
any person purporting to act in their
The court sustained the demurrers
on the ground that the deed of con
veyance referred to, which was made
a part of the bill, did not convey or
pupport to convey the estate of the
plaintiffs in the "said property" the
estate of John li, deceased supposing
they had an estate therein.
The plaintiffs thereupon amended
their bill by adding thereto averments
of intention on the part of the grant
ors of the said deed or conveyance to
convey to trustees for the organiza
tion of a corporation the fee simple of
the lands devised by the will to the
plaintiffs, and that the ownership in
fee simple in such lands was claimed
and exercised by the said corporation
by virtue thereof; that the defendants
claimed that the said proceedings and
decision of the supreme court were
conclusive upon the plaintiffs and
forever barred tliem from setting up
any title under the said will to the
said lands, and that by reason of the
said decision o the Supreme Court. 1
they have been deprived of trustee s as
provided by the said will for the pro-"
