Ilia Majesty received at Iolani Palace, F. A. Schaefer
Esijuire, Consul for Ilia Majesty the King of Italy,
to present to His Majesty the Insignia cf Knight
Grand Cross of the ancient Order of tho Suiuta
Mauriztua and Lazarus.
On presenting the Insignia Mr. Schaefer wide the
following address. ,
Siac It is my agreeable Juty to present lo Your Maj-nty
the Insignia of the ancient Order of the Saints Mauritius ami
Lazarus, of which my Sovereign I, as teen tleased to rreato
Your Majesty a Knight Crand Cross, uYcorateil with the Cran'l
Cordpn or the Order.
I a in instructed on this occasion to give expression to the
high esteem and consideration which my Sovereign and the
Royal Family of idly entertain for V ir Majesty, and the in
terest which the King takes in the stt'liire and roicrity of
Your Majesty and of your people, as well as in the continued
good will and friendship, so happily existing between the King
doms of Hawaii and Italy.
To which Ilia Majesty replied :
Ma. CostiuL I accept with much pleasure these Insignia
of the ancient Order of the Suiuls Maurizlus and Latarus, of
which it has pleased your Sovereign the King of Italy to create
mc a Knight Grand Cross.
1 assure you that I highly esteem this distinguished honor,
and I am much gratified at the kind sentiments which,
through you, your Sovereign and the Royal Family of Italy
express for the welfare and prosierity of myself and of my
people. It will always be my anxious desire to reciprocate
these kind feelings towards the King of Italy, and to cherish
and preserve the good will and friendship which to happily
exists between the two Kingdoms.
Mr. Schaefer then presented to Ilia Majesty Julius
Hoting, Esq., Secretary to the Italian Consulate.
Ilia Majesty took occasion to inform Mr. Schaefer
that it gave him much pleasure to appoint him to
the grade of Knight Commander of the Royal Order
of Kamchameba I. and presented him with the
:""IIis Majesty was attended on this occasion Ly II.
R. II. William Pitt Leleiohoku, TLeir Excellencies W.

the Hawaiian Islands; Colonels W. F. Allen, Edward
Hoffmann, Charles II. Jul J, Mark Robinson; F. W.
Beckley, Esquire, II. M.'s Chamberlain; and Major
Chas. T. Qulick.
After the audience the company was invited to a
collation, during which the Hon. C. C. Harris at the
request of Ilia Majesty the King, proposed the hoalth
of His Majesty the King of Italy, as follows :
The House of Savoy has been illustrious, during many cen
turies, lor the brilliancy of the talents ol its chiefs, and for the
prosperity which lias attended their enterprises. And never
more illustrious than to-day, this family, having its origin in
the mists of antiquity, early in the 12th century, were taking
a prominent part iu the affairs of the " Holy Roman Empire,'
and from the 14th century have steadily made advance in ter
ritorial and political Influence.
I have aaid that thia brilliant and fortunate family have
never been more brilliant or more fortunate than now. His
present Majesty having succeeded to the thione by the abdica
tion cf his father in 1349, has gathered around him the iwt
illustrious statesmen and the most glorious warriors Cavour
and Garibaldi. To mention their names is sufficient, without
comment. Under this reign, conflicting interests have been so
far reconciled as to make a United Kingdom of the Italian Pe
ninsula, and the ancient mistress of the work! is, once more,
the capital of Italy, and Instead of being the lone mother of
dead empires only, is now the capital of a living, breathing
and progressive Kingdom, The toast to-day, therefore, in Hi
Majesty, the King of Italy and the Italian Nation, no longer
the Italian States. Long life and continued prosperity to the
The toast was duly honored, the band playing the
National Italian Hymn.
Mr. Schaefer then proposed the health of His
Majesty the King of the Hawaiian Islands with the
accompanying remarks :
Voir Majesty In the name of Ills Majesty the King of
Italy, I have the honor to thank V'our Majesty for the noble
manner in which you were pleased to propose his health and
continued prosjierity to the Italian Nation.
While this interesting occasion is an exchange of interna
tional courtesy and good feeling, it is also the expression f
personal esteem and friendship conveyed from Sovereign lo
His Majesty the King cf Italy, in his own words, confers
thia distinguished Order npon Your Majesty from bis own im
pulse, to testify to the high sense of regard and consideration
which be entertains for Your Majesty, personally.
The visit of His Royal Highness the Duke of Genoa to these
islands has been instrumental of establishing and strengthen
ing these sentiments. The kindness and friendship then ex
tended to the Duke by Yoar Majesty is gratefully remembered
and fully recognized by His Majesty the King of Italy and by
the Royal House cf Savoy.
In the name of rny Sovereign, I have the honor to propose
the health and prosperity of Your 51aj-sty, ol the Royal
Family of Hawaii and the Hawaiian Nation.
Mr. Harris then remarked that during the year
1873 the Italian National Fhip GaribaMi arrived,
bringing as visitor to these Inlands, His Royal High
ness the Duke cf Genoa. Hia Majesty the King, at
that time Prince David Kalakaaa, formed the ac
quaintance cf His Royal Highness and was so strongly
impressed with friendly feelings towards him, that
on His accession to the Throne, he saw fit to mark
his remembrance of the visit by conferring upon Ilia
Royal Highness the decoration cf Knight Grand
Cross of the Order cf Kamthameha I. This visit
His Msjesty still holds in the most pleasant remem
brance and baa commanded me to ask you, gentlemen,
to join in a pledge to the health and prosperity of
Hia Royal Highness the Lake cf Genoa.

Land Grants. A case came up in the Fupreme
Court during the late term, involving to some extent
the effect of a patent to one man for another. The case
was Kane against Perry, the plaintiff claiming under
a patent issued to Kamaha for Maraea, a heir to Ka
maha, and also to Maraea, and cf her son Paleka
luhi. The defendant pleaded in bar a deed from
Palckaluhi as role heir of Maraea deceased. The
Court ruled that as the plaintiff neither admitted
nor denied the allegation that Palckaluhi was Ma
raea' son and sole heir, that was a fact for a jury;
but that if it turned out that this allegation was
true, the plaintiff could not recover. The defendant
offered in verification of his plea the will of Maraea
declaring ber con Pulekaluhi to be her sole heir and
dcviice, and asked for judgment on the pleadings
with thia verification, provided the plaintiff declined
trial. But the Court declined to rule thus, and the
case ended by the plaintiff withdrawing bis case.

Klkctiox Ki Moit. Among tho natives, as elec
tiday approaches and the partisan, of different
candidates are urging their claims on the suCTrapes
of tlit? dear people, exciting minors nr? lu anl of
threatened violence to tin body of amateur politi
cian! known oh Mamalilum. who, il U asserted, will
unwarrantably Interfere with the freedom of tho
election. We do not credit till we hear during elec
tion times ; yet we beg to suggest as a preventive
measure, that the polling places within the build
ing be cleared of persons working in 1h Inleient
of any candidate. In limes pa-1 notably at the
election two years ago we noticed th practice of
retaining tax receipts, which, aceornpHiiifd with a
ballot, were btnded to the voter in charge of ono
or more runners, w ho conducted htm lo the ballot
box. This not '-the freedom of elections."
Open and active interference on the part of any
perbon in autboiity is wrong anl mischievous, and
we trtif t that the good ens of tho Ministry will
prevent any dixplay of mistaken aK-al on Wednes
day next. Willi 21 votes assured to government
out of 51 in the Assembly, the popular element may
bafely be permitted to select representatives with
The Ciiinkse Festival. Commencing on Tuesdsy
night and lasting until Thursday night, the Chinese
residents cf Honolulu have been celebrating their
new years. I-rem the leading merchants, repre
sented by Afongand Achuck and Chulan Pros ,
down to small traders and bousehol I servants, all bad
their spread cf tea and good things, and received
callers on Wednesday. Immense quantities cf Cre
crackers and Chinese bombs were let of!, and music (?)
from celestial bands "rattled the welkin's ear."
Outside barbarians made numerous calls on their
Chinese acquaintances, and were received everywhere
with a hearty welcome to well-spread tables. Rut
the visit that left the plcasmte-tt recollection on cur
minds, was one we made to a company cf Christian
Chinese, who, with Hit Moon the colporteur at their
bead, form a little colony by them wires. On a table
cf modest proportions but amply provided with lux
uries an 1 the indispensable pot cf bet tea, was pro
minently displayed the emblem cf Christianity,
wreathed with evergreens and Sowers and crowned
with the symbolic pi-sion flower. In Chinese char
acters on strips of red paper were displayed scrip
tural texts and religioas tentirndnts. On the shelves
about the room were books in Chinefc and English
the ell and new Testaments, and school Locks.
Viewing the unpretentious scene, we are led to re
flect, with Massinger, that

Again, the usual Wednesday evening prayer meet
ing at the bethel Wii imprcvi-ed into a union meet
ing cf Chinese and others, wherein the kinging cf
standard hymns to familiar tancs, was in both
Chinese and English, and Mr. Sit Moon made a brief
al Iress, with much apparent earnestness to an audi
ence cf acme fifty cr more cf hia countrymen. Re
marks were made in English by the Rev. Lr. LatAon
and by the Rev. Mr. Chaney, cf Rostoo.

Tb prisoner bring iiidtcteJ fot tb oflrns of toll
in opium, and the till cf the art, reading "An

it is clear that ro far aa th ifletis of wiling opium
is coucerned lb act is no bruwder than lis (111.
Th general authority of tb legislature I exer
cise its police power and to prohibit tb Importation
and sale of any article which in th exercls of lt
wisdom It deems to U deleterious lo lb I'ublid
Health la not qucstione-1.
This section Is deenie.1 lo t uneonatltutlonal for
th further reason that it make lb aale of opium a
enal offVioT, wbetcas hy other laws cf lb Kingdom
(acts of IWitl, and acta of 1H74. chap UK) lb Iwpor.
talioii and aale cf opium hy ticcuneJ dealer waa
authorised, and therefor thia law is" rttropctlv'
and void, being contrary to article 1C of (be consti
tution, which declares that "No fttroctlv laa
hall ever l enacted."
A complete answer to this objection Is lb fact that
the opium wbicb fat's prisoner waa oouvlcted of riling
waa proven at tb trial to bav been bought by him
some two mouths Ufor lb aal cf wbicb L was
convicted, and at that date tb law which authorised
the aalo cf opium by licensed dealers was not In fore,
but bad become abrogated hy lb law under discus,
ion. Moreover, lb of opium hy any other
thm liceused dealers or Physicians waa forbidden hy
tho former laws above refered lo.
Secliou 1, therefore, of lb act under wbltb Ibla
prisoner is indicted and convicted Is constitutional,
and the court will not listen lo objection mad hy
Aim, as lo th unconstitutionality cf other parts of
thia act, for A is right art not Involved any further.
II can only Inqulr whether hi conviction I under
a constitutional law.
Th prisoner Jliiu ia Indiotcd under amotion I cf
this act, wbicb read : "Any person who shall bav
lo bis fosscssion opium, cr any preparation thereof
which be ah all not bav received from tb Hoard of
Health or from ft duly licensed Physician or Burgon
aa prescribed in section t, of this aot, shall forfeit
ucb opium or preparation thereof to tb Hawaiian
Government, and tb aaui aball b seised and de
livered to tb Hoard of Health, anJ such person
hall be imprisoned for ft term of not nor than on
year, with or without Lard labor In tb discretion of
This Hection la also claimed to b unconstitutional,
beoauio " retrospective."
Her w must notlo tb failure on tb part of th
prisoner to show that this opium wbicb b Lad In LI
possession bad been purchased from ft duly !Unsd
dealer In opium whil the law authorising It waa In
Rut why nay not on legislature doclar Illegal
trafho wbicb ft previous Legislature bad auctioned f
Hucb a law is not trictly " rralrospective," It doe
not impair any " vested right," forth privilege of
importing opium by a licensed dealer, while It existed,
waa ft statutory privilege and lasted for Lut on year,
as was also tb right to soil opium to chinaman
and th law I settled that ft statutory privllrg I
not ft vested right.
Th effect of the principle contended for hy tb
prisoners counsel would b lo prevent tb Legislature
of this King lorn from repealing any of tb existing
license law and from prohibiting the exercls of aoy
particular traffic now licensed; aa In lb cas of
spirit for example, tb trad in which Is now licensed,
but which the next Legislature might deem burtM
to the community and wish to prohibit.
On grounds of publio policy the Legislature for
mcrly thought it wis and proper to restrict tb lm
portation and aal of opium by allowing tbi privi
lege to two licensed dealer in Honolulu at blgU
charge, and they mad the further restriction that It
could be roll only lo Chinamen ; th Act of lb74
restrict the Importation and sale of tbi drug still
further by conferring thia privilege upon the Hoard
of Health alone.
This law la not unjust or oppress! v In tbi regard,
for it gave one year notice be for it went Into oper
ation, and this period tb Legislator considered to
be ample time in which all parties having opium la
their possession could rid themselves of tb artlol.
The case presented is not that of lb licensed
dealers, under th atat of facts of tb legislator
4Vy one law authorising them lo Irojiort opium and
then by another law making the possession of tbU
opium a penal offense and tb opium liabl to confis
cation; for if, without due and reasonable nolle to
them, their property tbua legally ucquired and bold
shoal 1 be confiscated, they might perhaps bav Just
grounds for presenting a claim for indemnity to tb
Hut it ia claimed that Hection &1 of tbi Aot ia
unconstitutional and void because ther I nothing
in the title cf the Act to indicate that lb possession
of opium is punishable; and that ibis Heolion, L
cause broader than the title, should fall.
It is only necessary that the till of an Act shout
express ita object, I. e. the purpose for wbutb It la In
tended, and it ia not necessary, that every provision
of the Act should be indicate I In tb title, for that
would require the title to be a full and comprehen
sive aa the Act its I. It ia sufficient if tb ffeetioa
under contention In truth carries out tb object of
the Act itself.
The ol ject of the Act ia declared by tb till t U
the restricting of the Importation aod aale of opium,
and this Pection Z, punishes tb having of tb
opium in possession, which tends absolutely and di
rectly to restrict its importation and aal. It i tru
that the Kection waa intended also to bav tb edict
cf preventing tb us of opium; bat though tbi
may be one of th legitimat effect effbia fWtlon
and perhaps lis most obvious intention, It is not an
constitutional, for it also carries out the decUred
object of the law, I. e. the restriction of tb linporta
