I mattt-r oi ctne taxation was a ve. y important
j one, but in the decision of it by the Court, the
j law only must govern, not jiiestiuus of govem
I mental policy. In the- settlement of these que.
; timis, the Legislature was the only authority.
He held that under the law of the land, the
; Coolies were subject to tax.- iquaily with any
other chisf. lb.y were nun, not sans, neither
could a contract like the one in question he eon-

in-it, lor ii mis entire ciass are to ue exemptiHi,
the bnnleii would come heavier upon thosj who
pay, and they Wtiukl li.ive a riglit to complain,
for it would be unjust to them. Every man is
bound to assist in the support of the government
under which he lives, either hy giving his per-
tonal services or hy raying taxes. There lias
been no legislation providing for the exemption
of the coolies duiing servitude, nor is there any

effect, and no power exists beyond that of the
legislature which can exempt then, from the
action of the law. They cann.it escape on the
plea of ignorance they must have known that
there was tome law here ; they came into the
1 country voluntarily, and at once became subject
I tt nil the legal obligations of citizens. Ii they,
i are to be coiisidoicd exempt by reason of the ,
' contract, then the agent of the Hoard of linmi- ,
grafion had no authority to make nucIi a con- j
, tract. The legislature could give no fucIi ;
authority in contravention of law the King:
himself cannot alter taxation laws. A great
principle is here involved, and if this class is to .
be exempted, the precedent will Im disa-troiis.
: If the enforcement of these taxes is a h.irddiip to ;
the ciMtlies or to the planters, tbi ir remedy is
with the I'gislature : let tliein pay and then ask '
for relief, ami they will prohahly get it. I'cr
hapsi the coolie may pay that he has made an im
pr ovid nt contract if m lie cannot ask for relief;
in this extraordinary way. (Mr. I read from !
various authorities in fiij port of his argument.) .
Mr. Montgomery, for 1'akalo Chow, t-aid: He
had been informed hy Dr. llillebrand that no
taxes are levied tion this class iu China, and :
Mr. M. argued that they did not suppose, nor
; had any reason to suj pose when they tngaged to
come here that they would have any taxes to
lay. It is clear that they came hero utterly
: " 'I
ignorant as to this matter. Why were ihey not
p .1 T 1 r T 11 '
iiifornied by the Ii-iard of Tiimngratioii on their
' arrival ? They have a right to think that they
' ' .
have been aggrieved. It was unfortunate that
Ir. Hiilebrand or the lioard instrue.ing him did
not- nitiitioii the matter of taxes, but the silence,
. . ,, , .
ol t!ie Mr. i-bould not work against these igno-

of the coniliioil law
coiuiiion law in constraint: contracts
should not be allowed in regard to these men.
The agent sent to procure them went clothed
with the authority and prestige of a high gov
ernment ofh'cial a Royal Coimiiissioiier, and the
Chinese undoubtedly viewed him in that light,
and entered into the contracts with full coiifi-
detice of fail play. It was the dlltv of the Colli-
. . , , . , ,. , .
mi-sioiier to have told the coolies all the facts
everything that was expectcl of them. Rut he
with!,-Id whtit he ought to have told he left
them in ignorance and now government comes
in ami claims to tax theui. The matter of taxes
should have been inserted in the contract. The
omi-si m wn- an important on., for what is not
in the emmet must be excluded from its oj-ra-
tien. The laches of the government should
operate in favor of tho coolies. YVLat they ask
for is not an absolute release from taxation, but
a sus.ciisioii of the law during the term of th -ir
contracts. The consequences which must result
from enforcing the collection of these taxes were
anything but pleasant to Contemplate.
Mr. Judd. for Mr. Ia-wcts, said : The assignee
of the contract made by government with the
coolie is not liable for the taxes of the coolie,
because there was no intimation of such liability
either in the contract itself, or verbally nt the
time of the assignment. The planter, for whom
ob-lv Mr. J. appeared, was entitled, under the
contract, t live entire year of service from the
coolie. Now if government proceeds to take
twenty days service of the coolie every year to
pay or work out his taxes, it follows that the
planter does ii"t get the full time contracted for,
and would have a cause far claim on the govern
ment. The contracts are plain, and must Ik
carried out b the full term of live year. This
5 per annum demanded by government from
the coolie bas nothing whatever to do will! t!ie
j.'.atit'T. The Planter is not liable to pay to the
government the taxes of the dulie, liecause the
Statute of Frauds prevents a man being ho!d--n
f.r the debt of another, unless he has specially

DitowNKn. On Sunday last, during the freshet
i in the N'nuanu stream, quantities of firewood from
j above came floating dow n, and w ere eagerly picked
up by the natives living on the borders of the
j stream. Among the rest was a young married
! woman, named Kalehua, who was more venture
j some than theotheis iu wading out into the stream,
! when suddenly, by a new accession from above,
i the waters came down in a huge wave and the
woman was instantly engulfed. Her companions
; on the shore found it impossible to render her any
! assistance, but had enough to do to look out for
j their ow n safety. She was seen to rise once and
I endeavor to reach the bank, but instantly disap
I pearcd. drawn under by a whirlpool. During the
dav, and on Monday morning, both banks of the
stream were carefully searched without finding the
body, but on Monday afternoon it was found hy a
' fisherinsxi on the edge of the reef, not lar from
j w here the L'ic,riiriina is moored. On information
j received. Sheriff Dayton had the body brought to
! the Station House, whence, beintr identified bv the
i husband and other relatives, it was taken up the
; Valley for interment. There were two wounds,
one oil the head and one on the cheek, by contact

a seaman belonging to the sickuctiiun. named

, permission of some of the hands to go below for

influence of liquor at the time. This was granted,
and Warren evinced his gratitude for the hospitali

I stealing from the berth of one of the sailors, a
