ISLANDS July Term, 1878.
I-V THE MATTER OP THE PETITION OF L.OCIS PaLOMA,
AND OTHERS, TO QUIET TITLE LV A CESTAIX
PIECE Or LA.I CLAWED BT RlCUT OT tXEERI
TAXCE. Harris, C. J.; Jcvd and JJcCcllt, J.J.
Question Reserved. Opinion by Harris, C. J.
Tbia action is apparently brought under the
-j tcapter oi tfce eeelon Laws of 1374, being
" An Act to Quiet Title in Lands, claimed by
right o( inberiunce." It is true that no refer
ence to the statute is made in the petition, but
via tie tact i&at the petition is made to the first
Associate Justice instead of the Chief Justice,
and indeed, tbe whole structure of the petition,
indicates that it was made under that statute,
and it was eo argued at the bar. The fourth
subdivision of the tiret section of the statute re
quires that there ehouJd be set forth in the peti
tion, whether widow, children or statutory heirs,
survived the deceased ancestor. Now this peti
tion does not set forth those facts, but merely
sets forth that the petitioners are the lawful
heirs of Palorua, being his sisters and brother.
To that eEtent they are certainly statutable heirs,
provided there are none nearer. The petition
does not set forth that Sheldon, who is cited,
claims as heir, but merely that be is in rjowes-
sion and does not state bow he came into posses
sion, whether by deed or otherwise.
Service was made upon the respondent Shel
don, who has 6een fit to put in an answer admit
ting that he is in possesion, but aTerricg in ef
fect that he claims the land adversely to these
claimants, and by title paramount, and not by
inheritance from John Paloma. This is a com
plete answer and sufficient to take the case out of
This then is not a petition to Ouict a Title
b . T
ut is a proceeding to obtain possession of a piece
of land claimed adversely by Sheldon, or in other
words, a proceeding to eject Sheldon, who, it is
not maae to appear, claims as heir, or has any
c-ommuniiy oi interest witn tne petitioners, jnow
in the 7th Article of the Constitution it is stated
that, In all cases in which the right of trial by
jury had been heretofore used, it shall be held
inviolable for ever, excepting in actions of debt
or assumpsit, in which tho amount claimed is
less than ($50) fifty dollars."
.ftow in actions ot this nature, (ejectment) be-
lore ino promulgation ot the Constitution (20th
August, 18G4,) the right cf trial by jury had
been used for a long space of time, and therefore
may not be denied by any subsequent legislation.
nence it ioiiows that the delendant has a right
to a trial by jury, and the petition must be

followed. In reply to Yarious questions Mr.
Gibson replied in substance as follows: The con

drouth, Is prosperous and the future looks very
bright. Since the passage of the reciprocity
treaty sugar-lands have increased ia price won
derfully, and all tinds of available real estate
bring high figures. When land is in demand it
is a sure sign cf general prosperity. The rurar
interest throughout the group is promising, and
all the leadiDg men on the Islands are engaged
in the production of the leading staple cf Hawaii.
A considerable area is under rice, this article of
commerce being entirely in the hands of the
Chinese. Our wool product is increasing jearlv,
but as wool is not included in the articles that
can be admitted free of duty into the United
states, we are compelled to find a market for it
in the Australias and Canada. The duty per

we cannot afford to pay, and hence we ship it

Opinion by Harris, C. J.
The bill of complaint in this case was filed on
the 18th March, 1878. eettirjcr forth an noTflprn'pnr.
for tho purchase and Bale of a small piece of land
in Koolaupoko. This agreement ia dated the
10th March, 18G4, and the translation of it is as
There has been paid to me this day twenty
dollars by the hand of Kuawela. Eighty dollars
have been paid before ; in all one hundred dol
lars for our eelliDg a certain portion of land in
Manulele, Kailua, Koolaupoko. Whensoever all
the place sold shall be surveyed off then I will
give him a deed.

The Ilalakaipo who signs this paper was the
unutr m me janu, ana tne person Irom whom
the present title is derived. She died in the
month of June, 1876, not having executed the
deed. Kuawela, the plaintiff, has been on the
land, e ver since the date of this paper, and before
tutu, uuie, ana uas Duut a cottage on it. But it
is oDjectea to this wntmg that it is 6igned by a
mark, and the signature is unwitnessed by any
one, and therefore the writiDg is not within the
6pint oi tne iU5Jd isection of the Civil Code
which 6tates that " no action shall be maintained

The Court is of opinion that this is a sufficient

course such a signature would have to be proved

written, or by undoubted admissions of the party
sought to be charged ; but if fully proved would

signed it by letters.
But there is a plea in bar set up to the effect
that a bill similar to this, was filed on the 27th
August, 1877, and summons duly issued ; that
on the 3d of September the defendants filod thrir
general and special demurrer, and on the 29th of
iNovemoer a oecree was made dismissing the said
bill ; and further, that on the 4th dayof Octo
ber, preceding Baid 29th of November, an agree
ment was made between the parties, that if no
injunction were ordered in pursuance of the pray
er of said bill, the defendant in the bill, who was
plaintiff in a suit of ejectment then pending,
might take judgment ; and it is argued here that
according to the memorandum of the Clerk the
bill was dismissed generally without reference to
trie points ot demurrer. On consulting the
Clerk's memorandum, Buch appears to b'e the
fact. But this was merely the Clerk's memo
randum, and as soon as the Judge was apprised
of it, it was his right and duty to muke whatever
corrections were necessary, aud he did so. savins

course to allowing them to hie an amended bill,

Now no injunction was denied ; but as the Judge
says, in his opinion, the bill was dismissed with

the plaintiff's counsel filed a new agreement in

The Hawaiian Islands can support 1,000.000

to think that Bird Inland, to the northwest cf
Kauai, would be a desirable point for a break
etation, in the event of a Pacific Cable being
laid, but a visit to that isolated rock would con
vince him that every requisite for making it a
convenient station is wanting; while here, on
Oahu, everything needed is at hand, or could be
procured without unnecessary delay. The con
cluding sentence is an expression of the argu
ments that prevent united action by the peoplo of
Australia on this important subject. Each Colo
ny desires its own interests to be paramount, or
they will have nothing- to dj with it :
TLe Cable Conference which recently sat in
Melbourne, was remarkable for the absence ot
any representative of Western Australia. It seema
unfortunate that the situation of this colon v on the
Australian continent ia regard to our Indian Em
pire should attract so little attention, at a time
when the other Australian colonies are engaged In
discussing plans tor transmarine telegraphic Im
provements. While Perth was unconnected with
the Eastern Australian Colonies by the telegraph,
it is not surprising that little or no attention was
given to the scheme of a direct submarine cable
bet ween Freemantle. or some othpr nnint nn th
West coast of Australia, and Cevlon. with a con
venient break-station on Keeling's Islet The
manifold advantages of direct cable communica
tion between Southern India and Western A nstrn-
lia are too obvious to need recapitulation. How
ever isolated may seem the position ot Western
Australia at present, it must strike all reflective
minas, in Australia itseir, in British India, and the
mother country as well, that a splendid and hitrhlv
important future lies before the Western coast re
gions of the Australian continent. thanks to their
geographical position. As long as Her Majesty
tne Uueen bears also the title ot EinDressof India
the proximity of Western Australia to British India
will constantly grow of more and more import
ance, especially when the day arrives that shall nee
an Australian Dominion, similar to the actual Ca
nadian Dominion, joined out oi the several disuni
ted Australian colonies of the present day.
A submarine cable between dvl nn nn.1 tli
West coast of Australia, now teleirraDhicallv con
nected with the East coast, would form a most im
portant link in the grand scheme of telegraphic
communication which many enlightened and far
seeing people propose as a mode of connecting the
mother country with the present Canadian Domi
nion, the proposed Australasian Dominion, and
the British Indian Empire, via British North Am-
rica. the Pacific, Australia, and the Indian Ocean.
Not long ago Lord Normanbv nronosed ta Karl
Carnarvon a scheme for a submarine cable be
tween New Zealand and Kan Francisco, via Fiii
uuu nonoiuiu. as a modification ot this scheme.
it has been suggested that, inasmuch aa an over
land inter-oceanic teleeraph line ia now beincr
constructed between Canada and British Colum
bia, which will soon be completed, it would be
more desirable for obvious reasons to make Vic
toria (in Vancouver's Island) the terminal station
on the North Pacific ot the suhiuarine cable which
Lord Normanby proposed to the Secretary of
State for the colonies to lay down between New
Zealand and the North American coast. The
mother country would thus possess telegraphic
communication with Australia, and ultimately
with British India, independently of all other
powers. Bird Island a rocky islet considerably

W. Ii. Castle, Attorney for Kuawela.
Honolulu, II. I., February 13th, 1S78.
This is a positive agreement, made seven
months after the proceedings have been com
menced in the case, with a full knowledge of all
the facts, and we think it binding uponall the
parties. Judgment was entered upon it and
writ of possession was duly issued. There is no
reason shown why this last agreement shall not
be taken as conclusive between the parties, for
ought that appears in the bill or is made to ap
pear at the hearing. There could have been no
other intention, for unless Euch be the intention,
the agreement is absolutely useless. '
The plea in bar is sustained and the bill is

Honolulu, Aug. loth, 1878.
The Orejunlan. reviewing the Indian war, says
General Howard has no fear of the criticism which
his campaign has encountered. It is based, be
believes, on the assumption that some locality,
town or post was to be guarded by the troops,
whereas the main and constant effort with the
troop? and means at hand was to overtake and
fight the enemy ; defeat his efforts at junction with
waiting allies ; and kill or capture, or drive
beyond our limits these murdering hostiles. This
he declares has been done.
The Indians, in their raid in Umatilla county,
visited the ranch belonging to E. 11. Vinson, on
Butter creek. Some of the deviltry they per
petrated at this ranch seems to have a spice of
grim humor in it. One thing they did was to kill
all the hogs on the ranch and put a nice cheese
under the bead of each dead hog.

phesied will not be realized. In many districts
there has been an increase of births over deaths
and in no locality has the death mf f,n n
disheartening as in the past. The favorite theme
of His Majesty Kalakaua is embodied in the ex
pression. IIooulu lahui " (increase and mul
tiply,) and the people seem to have the same
motto as their worthy ruler. The mothers of
Hawaiian children rov more attention in rh;.
offspring than formerly, and the houses of the
natives have been increasing in number from
grass hovels to neat one and two-story wooden
buildings. On my own island there are over
fifty wooden buildings, all comfortable dwelling
houses, where a few years ago grass huts 6tood.
We have so influenced their social evetcm that i
parents now sleep apart from their cider children.
In ancient times all slept together on mats on the
noor, wuu one jarge tapa, or blanket, made of
trie hark or trees, over them. Throughout the

cable connection with California, and th (Tn.
crnment is no less zealous. Our commercial
relations are rapidly growing, and San Francisco is
looked upon as the sister of Honolulu. As to the
form of government, the great majority of the peo
ple of Hawaii are content with a liberal and en
lightened monarchy. In no place in the world are
life and property more secure than in the Sand
wich Islands. The people are generous and
hospitable, and as to the climate it is perfect
in its tropical moderation. In asking about
the Chinese question I think the case is precisely
as it is here. There are not over 350O coolies
on the Islands, although I have seen the number
set as high as 5000. The natives are strongly
opposed to the further importation of Chinamen,
as much so as are the laboring whites of Califor
nia, as it concerns them. The Hawaiian Gov
ernment is procuring PulTnpsinn hhor. r,
the South Pacific, and these receive a warm
welcome. The more of them that can be pro-

This ended the
station would be established at Fiif. and as
a further modification of the Fcheme, a cable from
thence might be thrown direct across to the
Queensland coast. In fine, British India could ul
timately be connected bv cahl ps with Xatal in
British South Africa, via the Mauritius.
It must be owned that this is
of telegraphic communication between the mother
country and all her great territorial possessions,
in North America, Australia. Asia and South Afri
ca, continuously through British territory, when
not under sea and consequently unintnrriintedlv
under British control. To return, however, to the
question before the cable conference at Mel
bourne: might it not be well to crlance at the nro-
ject of a direct cable communication between
Western Australia and Cevlon. via the, Indian
Ocean, especially as a link would thus be safely
laid down in the trieantie telernnliie si-hemn out-
lined above, and alreadv
Marquis of Normanby. as regards the Pacific sec
tion of the same ? Under these curenmstances, it
appears to use the very best nolicv for Vtprn
Australia to decline to be saddled with any part
of the cost of any scheme of submarine telegraphic
communication between this continent and anv
point of the Asiatic continent, save and except a
cable between Western Australia and Ceylon.
