Thomas Martin k Son vs. Nahon. Mr. Dole j Rarity or Speciality For
(or plamtitls. As reported in the Aivki:tisE!: of
'2, Ah nit. the point appeal-d upon was the valid
ity ( a luixr contract made Wtwecn jarties
lth of whom are Hawaiiaus and written only in
the Hawaiian laiinau'e. It was contended on
tx half of the defendant that he could not beheld
Ifound by the contract l-ciiuse it was not in
accordance with the fi r?-t section of the Masters
and Servants Act lds, which reads as follows :
"All contracts for service between masters and
servants, where either rf the contractiuo parties j
is of Hawaiian birth, shall be written and printed j
in both the Iliwaiiar. and English lan:iat,'es.
Xo such contracts shall have flVct in law when !
executed in one lan-ua 'e only. The contract I
was made prior to the passing of the Act of 1S"
which contains a provision for the cuse when j
lMth parties are Hawaiian. The decision of the
Court, which was civen by Judc MeCuIIy, was j
m (av;r of the piaititiS-, on the ground that the ;
trm either " does not inclnib "both," nor j
d es " lx-;h " the greater intend and therefore1
liielud" th. less- either." After oiiotni ' i.ro- H
' -- j i
vision in the law of lss:( the judgment ooes on ;
to say " This simply substitutes "only one " for
either," and adds a proviso ai;aiust con .truing
" only one " to mean " loth." In our view the ;
f.t::t;Ue of l:s expressed the same tiling. It is
not a lleccary inference that it did Hot. because ;
it is here enacted in other terms. The reason tf ,
the ameiidiii- nt appears in th.J proviso against a j
coiisiruciiin wiiicn iaini ou maiie, aim, as in
the cas- ln'fore us has bei. :i mad-, fpm a f iihire
to i.roi.eilv construe the term "either,'.' for
which the later statute yibstitutes "only one'' j foil fi.KtF. BY

A New Chinese Enterprise.

tie Managers of a new Chinese Jo'lit Sftoek

The M-'.foo took a car ti about 10(H) tons" tea

Managers whose names are Lian Sin-Un and

capital with which tii new cnterprice has been

the. Company will at first be chiefly C nuned to
thcteinnl i-ilk trades but will in due time be'
extended to other dej artinentf . A regular line
.if Chinese ftcamer between Chinese ports and'
L nd n is in contemplation. Our old friend.
Cii'tain Peterson, has one home in command of
the'Meifo'. S )ine of the foreign papers pub-;
lished at the Chin--e treaty ports are t-cej tical ns
to the ability of tins new Company to make ,
in ney in a trade which they declare lias lor
years -t been" n Ic-iii one " to the most ex
l rienced of those already enaed in it. The :
promoters T the Cnupany are evidently of a
diflVreiit mini, a they have chosen S-.i ouh-ins,
the ineaiun of which is the creation ol pros- '
jcrity " as the lirm name unclcr which the Cutn
