I This case was tried for the third time. The evi-

instrncteel the jury that they were bound to give

a unanimous verdict, fixing damages at $100.

Court to instruct the jury to find for the defen

elant relied on the fa, t that in 1 k the Prebate
Court had found that Hookaiio. through whom
defendant s title comes, was nephew and only
surviviug relative of Kt liikuhoc. who had been
th'" eewue r of tlie l.md now in dispute. The
Court reserved the question as tie whethe r the
proe-e-edings of the Probate Curt must be takfn
as conclusive that Hook.ii:, was tlie- heir to

The King vs. Alfred Ilhodus. Mr. Hortwt-Il
moved the Court herein to quash the iueUctiutut
on the ground that Phodus had not W u charged
with the offence stated in it Ix-fore any commit
ting magistrate and that there is no authority of
law for presenting an inlictraent without a pre
liminary examination before a magistrate. Mr.
Preston argued that it was too late after pleading
to the indictment, to make this motion. Prison
er had Wen committed to be trieel by a jury. The
Court did not think the motion too late but was
of the opinion that a commitment for an attempt
to commit murder wou!l sustain an indictment

A I.ouoxrr'ei Note.
KlLAfEA AND KoLAC (NOT IvOLOa) AS TKEY
WEr.E, AND AS THEY AKE.
As I have promised, after leaving Hanalei, to
send a few notes on Kilanea and Kolau sections
of the garde n itland, I have nly now found it
convenient to do so.
In pas-iug along the v.-ad leading from Ilana
!e i th-re i- U"t much change to be seen until wc
reach Kalihiv.ai llive-r. Here used to be a snug
little native s.f.l, iae nt, where the kanaka e-;l-tivae-d
hi tavo patch- - and caught abundance
of tine-tl-hes soiiutiiiies in the river, and some
times in the -ci near by : but now th- laro
patches and the kanakas ate almost totally
e-e l:'p-e-d by friend John." who has transformed
the whole into a riee plantation, txce pting two
or thre e small kul-anas. Formerly the fording
e.f this rive)- was a "tenor" to travelh-rs many
a rider his had a the nough "ducking" just
Vl:.;:i one reach- d the river from either side
he naturally looked for the shoalcst and most
promising part to pass over, bnt before preeceed
ing far would fee-1 water inside of his bteots, then
his horse swimming, anl then the wate r lashing
over all horse, saddle ami rider ; but now all
of this trouble, and I may say danger, is ob-viatt-d
by a liberal Government and an energetic
roael supervisor, who have furnished a stanch
i roomy scow, and placed a person in constant
attendance, so that all who have a "dime " to
i spare, and are not too stiugy to spend it in such
; an emergency, can now cross and recross with
perfect safety and comfort.
The new government road from the river side
to the top of the hill is a very great improve
ment iueleed, as the old road was fit only for
.ure-foted steaels ; bnt this new roael can -accommodate
a bullock team, which must be a great
convenience and aelvantage to the people; in the
.district. And now we reach Kilo uea,. and what
a change is there. What was once vast nu-
j fenced pasture laml is now a forest of sugar
canes, with a little town inside of it. I have
found that when a stranger pays a visit to many
of our plantations, there is so much " tall talk,"
" bluffing," and even some deliberate lyiug
; indulged" in, that in respect for the morals of
! the several managements. I now visit strictly
This plantation since its inception has been a
: source of gossip for the sugar planting fraternity
all over tho islands, particularly on account of
j the enormous expense incurred ere it yield-id
I any returns in sugar ; but I must say that now
' this place has a tine healthy hok about it, and,
if no untoward circumstance arise, is likely to
thrive. There is a powerful and well appointed
mill, plenty of g'ed convenient houses for the
mechanics, officers and laborers. All that is now
wanted is plenty of cane, which means sugar,
' which means coin, and in the course of a few
more seasons this may prove to be a very fair
' paying enterprise. Hail 1 made enquiries as :o
i the probable crop for the coming season, it is
more than likely it would have been put nt
: about one-third more than it really will be, so I
j went around as if I were not looking, and from
j an extensive, practical experience I estima.e
' this crop (with an intelligent manipulation of
1 the saccharine matter), at one thousand tons
of sugar. We think in this estimate, our other
, wise well informed correspondent, must be
mistaken ; as there are COO acres of standing
' cane on this plantation, from which loOO tons
would be rather a small yield. Ed. P. C. A.
This is the most representative plantation on
' the Hawaiian Islands. There are men, women
; and children here from almost every civilized
! and uncivilized country and nation; there are
' English, Irish, Scotch, Americans.Poles, Danes,
Russians, Germans, Portuguese, Africans-, Chi
nese, South Sea Islanders aul Hawaiiaus. One
would imagine that the management would have
' an endless amount of trouble keeping this host
; in order, bnt the discipline, although strict, is
. tempered by mercy and fairness, and each party
having his own quarters and attending only to
! his own affairs, very little trouble (comparatively)
' is experienced.
There is a well atteudel native school on the
estate, and the Sunday services of the church
' are also well attended; also, there is a tiily res
: tauraut for the mechanics, officers and friends,
, and a Chinese store and coflce saloon by the
roadsiele for the general public.
Leaving Kilauea. aul passing Mr. C. Tit
comb's place,- we rind few changes, excepting
that very few of the old native grass houses res
main standing, and I presume, that of the
former occupants few also are neiw living ; but
ejnite a number of wooden houses are to be seen
in passing along, and these are occupied by the
younger generation, who are all stringers to mo.
When we reach Moloaa, we find a relic of thi
ol d whaleship times, unoccupied and going to
ruin, namely, ohl Mr. Dcrtelniaun the butcher's
place. Here were hundreds of prime cattle
slaughtered, and tons of juicy leef cured and
-tiit tj the Honolulu market for whaleship
st. !. for use while in the cold northern seas,
by the h irdy ami daring whale fishers ; now,
this line e business on the-se Islands is a thing
i of the past. Old Mr. B. is no more, and his
sou. who too?', up the business, has built Lim
eif a tine hou.-- on a sweet spot of his Pila
state. He has hi!.! out fine lawns around his
pl.i.'e, anel has pure spring water led from the
very fountain-head to every part of his exten
sive premises ; ami instead of salting down
l"-cf for the whaleship trade, he is furnishing
fresh beef and working cattle fo- the sugar
plantations in this section of the island.
The lands lying between this point and the

A limy Kony jjurnal thus comments upon
rumors of Kin Kalakaua's alleged purpose to
eed his sovereignty:
We have not the slightest hesitation in charac
terising the news (in Japan frrrald) and the sug
gestion alike as arrant humbug. King Kalakaua
is neither a knave njr a fool, if we understand
him aright; and the man wbo in his position
would contemplate for a moment such a step as
is here set forth would be both. Kalakaua and
his advisers have done much of late years and are
doing much now to prove themselves honest,
earnest, and able men, accepting with every
seriousness and sense of grave responsibility the
task that has fallen tohem, and they must have

The following is from the .V. C. D. Ntics trans
lations from the Ptiiny Gazette:
April 19th. A decree. In reverent reference
to the Empress Tz'u An, who has lately pasesed
away. As Her natural gifts were deep and va6t,
so was Her love and compassion far-reaching and
widely felt. Bountiful was She as earth itself in
Erodigal blessings, and Her deep affection is
eyond the power of words to describe. Though
Her spirit has flown far away. Her fair fame
remains with us for ever. We have now received
from the Grand Secretariat and the nine Minis
ters of State suggestions as to tho title by which
She should be canonised. As We foodly think
upon Iler tenderness for Us, Our gratitude ceases
not still to follow Her wherever She may be, and
We reverently select 6ix from the ten characters
of Her style when alive and piously incorporate
them with Her canonical title, which will then
feel will be a fitting title under which Her fame
will resound far and Her glory be perpetuated to
ten thousand generations. By this name She
will be worshipped from sea to mi, and all men
will feel Her blessed inSuenee. Let the Board
acquaint itself with the formalities herein invol
ved: ns fixed by previous custom, ar.d report.
A decree directing tlie various Yamens to dis
continue the euphemism ol speaking of the late
l.'mprcss's tomb as "the happy land lor 10,000
