Mr. JuLn i;as.-t-ll for d- fi u.ldiit. Tbi m-ss ais
spj'cal from the Poliee Coxirt of Honolulu. This
was a q-jt-stii-i: as to the liability of the defendant
to pay Liils iucurre l by the former owaer of the
brig Xieohu: in rf ..ld to that vessel before de
fendnnt Ixi'.ilit ht-r. From the evidence, it
ajipeun-d that IJolh-s A- Co. end other creditors
demandt-d payment from Thomas cf this and
other debts so incurred, under threat of libelling
the vessel. This was at the time the bill of
ile of the vtM-l was Wiug made out. Plaintiffs
jtlso claimed that defendant had promised to pay
their account. The defence was, that even if
such n promise had bt en made it was not bind
ing unless reduced to h written contract if the
party mating the promise repudiated it. De
fendant bt lieved he had good reason for refusing
to pay this debt, and denied having made
more than a conditions! promise to pay it.
The judgment of the Court as was fol
lows : "The testimony is . that defendant
purchased the vessel with notice of this
claim, and that he assumed the debt expressly,
and that it was taken into account in fixing the
price thereof. Now if this was u matter for
which the vessel was liable to a proceeding in
run, the defendant's assumption of the claim is
not a promise to pay the debt, or liability of
another person for which there must be tsome
memorandum in writing, signed ly the part'
charged therewith. He purchased the vessel
with this liability, and then assumed, it person
ally. Judgment for the plaintiff for amount
claimed, with costs."
Ah Took vs Ope.du. At the request of Mr.
Nahaku, council for plaint iti (appellant), this
case was continued on account of the absence of
a material witness. Mr. Holokahiki appeared
T. B. Murray vs O. Rarcnaba ; assumpsit for
$12-1. .Judgment for plaintiff had been given in
the Lower Court, and was now confirmed.
Ah Chow vs Iila and Man Tip. This was an
action of trespass, the plaintiff claiming that
defendants had unlawfully impouuded his cattle,
and laying damages at ?30. In the Police Court
judgment was given for defendants, uud Ah
Chow appealed. Mr. "W. C. Jones appeared for
appellant, and Mr. Dole for defendants. After
hearing evidence, which was somewhat length',
and the arguments of counsel, His Honor said
he would give judgement on Wednesday.
Wednesday, March 1st.
Ah Chow vs Bila ami Man Tip. The Court
rendered judgment in this case, us follows :
' The complaint is for unlawfully and wrong
fully taking and impounding three head of cattle
of the plaintiff's. The proof is clear that thc
eattlo were in trespass on the hind of defendant
Mail Tip, were captured and held as trespassers,
that plaintiff had notice thereof and had some
negotiations for obtaining their release; (the ev
idence is conflicting as to the terms of this ne
gotiation,) and that within twenty-four hours
thereafter they were put in the pound and that
plaintiff thereupon paid the charge made for the
damages together with the pound fees and re
covered his cattle. Now, what does he sue for ?
Clearly the impounding was lawful. The plain
tiff introduces much evidence to show that the
actual damage done was very slight and therefore
the charge, 15 damage, was excessive. Section
211 provides for such a ease. The amount
claimed may be paid to a poliee or district mag
istrate with other costs, whereupon the owner of
the animals may have a delivery from the pound.
The plaintiff not having done this, cannot now
recover" what lie has thus paid voluntarily on
the ground that the charge was excessive, nor
does an excessive charge make the impounding
wrongful or unlawful. Everything necessary to
a lawful impounding is shown beyond a doubt,
and it is now too late to consider whether the
defendant asked and the plaintiff paid too- much
for the damage done. Judgment for the defend
ants." Supremi Court.

Mouday, February '29.
Mauu tt at. vs Campbell tt at. This was a
suit to obtain the cancellation of a deed made by
one Mainaiu favor of Kauiaka. Messrs. HartwelJ,
Whiting, and Kauhikon, fer the complainants ;
Messrs. Preston and Cecil Brown for the respon
dents. It was contended, on behalf complainants,
that when he signed the deed Maina was, through
the effects of illness, not in the possession of his
faculties, and that undue influence had been
used to persuade him to execute it. Lengthy
evidence was taken. His Honor gave judgement
as follows :
" I am of opinion that the proofs establish
that Kamuka was present when the deed of
Maina to him was signed ; also that the proofs
do not show that undue influence was used over
Maina, or that he was imbecile or insane when
he executed the deed. The witnesses speak of
his paroxysms of pain, and that his mind was
weak during these attacks, but was strong when
he became better. There is no evidence that he
executed the deed when in one of these attacks ;
in fact, he rode to the acknowledging officer, and
rode again to Mr. Bond's to be married some ten
days after. But the testimony of Naiapaakai,
who wrote the deed, and took the acknowledge
ment, discloses that Maina's intention was to
make a Heed of his laud to all of his nieces and
nephews. Their joint occupation and cultiva
tion of the land accords with this view, and
Kamaka's assent to it and his acquiescence in
the arbitration of the difficulty between Mauu
and Zebedaio confirms this view. I decree that
the heirs of Kamaka hold this land for the
benefit of themselves and the other nieces and
nephews of Maina, and their heirs by right of
representation. Decree accordingly. Each party
to pay their own cots."
Mr. Preston uotvd an appeal to the Supreme
Court in Banco.
Jam ary Ti km, 1S82.
On Wednesday last His II m or Judge M Cilly
gave tl.e following decision in the case ...
HACKFKLI) & CO. CS. LEE LOY, THE MAKEE SUGAR
The Trustee Company makes answer tbat at
tbe date of service they had $18G7 23 to the
credit of defendant in account current, but that
C. Afong claims a lien on ail moneys owin to
Lee Loy by said company. Afong appears before
the Court, and exhibits first, an instrument
executed November 22nd, 1S79, by the defendant,
whereby, in consideration of $6000 advanced to
grow a crop of sugar cane upon certain lands un
der an agreement with tlie Trustee Company and
of further advances to be mafe, he mortgages
the said growinz crops of sugar cane ' to C.
Afong, constitutes him attorney irrevocable to
sell, etc., and to receive the proceeds, 2ud, a
power of attorney in the following term: The
document in consideration of an acknowledged
debt of over $0,000 authorizes Afong to sue for
and recover ail and every sum, or sums, of money
whatsoever, that are or is now, or hereafter
may be due and owin to me of and
from tiie Makee iugar Company, on account of
auy sugar planting interests at Knpaa," and to
aptdy recei its to payment of what was due to
him. It may well be considered for the pur
pose of the c!-e that the first instrument which
in terms relates to the crop of 1S79, is merged in
the second, more than a year later, and which is
not limited in time or confined to the crop of a
specified year. The question is whether by this
instrument the defendant made a valid assign
ment to Afong of bis credits then existing and to
accrue with the Trustee Company and by such
assignment they arc protected from attachment
by other creditors. No instrument could operate
to place the assignee in a better position than the
assignor, and a mere authority to .receive aod
hold defendant' funds would not cover tl.cm from
a trustee process. It would be effective only in
so far as such attorney had drawn and received
the defendant's credits from time to lime. But
the authority here given recites a c.itisideiatian
and empowers the attorney to F!-'y reevijts to
the discharge of the defendant's debt to his at
torney. It is piwer Coupled with an interest
based on consideration and not revocable. It is
moreover, a specific assignment ol tl.e proceeds i f
ti e venture in which tl.e debt was iiKiirr.d to
meet the same debt. The defend int avign- the
Iruit of the loan to the lender. The jinti : of
notice does not rise ii this e:i!e. Kefernng
to the morti3ge it a j pears to have been the secu
rity for advances made whicU then amounted to
$6000 and for future advancements demanded by
the business. For these the defend int gives Along
the security of a power to draw bis reeci ts ns
the crop was ground and sold by the Trustee
Company. But such a security would be defeat
ed if at all times tl.e defendant's other creditors
could by trustee process, search bis account with
bis asent and intercept his receipts. Upon these
considerations I shall bold that there bus been a
valid legal and equitable assignment to Afoii o!
the defendant's credits with the garnishee. See

Before His ll uur Judge MiCi M.v.
Id the matter of the estate ol Ii. B. Neville,
deceased. The judgment ia this matter was not
published at the time, and h is u v been placed
at the disposal of the Press. We now give such
portions of it as are of public inttrest, as bearing
on the duties and liabilities of trustees and ex
It would appear that the guardians, who
were in the first place the executors of the will,
settled the business of the estate by making col
lections and payment of liabilities, with the ex
ception of the $1000 moitgage. This was pay
able before the death of Neville, and. in my own
view, ought to have been paid off by the ex
ecutors. Their accounts show that they bad
enough cash to meet the note, or they might have
sold the real estate, as it appears they applied to
the court lor license to do, but discontinued t tie
" The rents have been credited, and out of the
original fund and the rents payments have lx'en
made from time to time for the support of the
wards. The items of expenditure seem proper
and of reasonable amount ; and it is right to say
that the two wards have been well brought up
44 The cash on band, when the executors ren
dered their account, September 15, 1870, was
$1705 13, but without chajge or executors' com
missions. At the rendering of the account, Nov.
26, 1879, the guardians charge the estate with a
debt of $58.32, and there remained only tbe
Kona property, still mortgaged for $1000. It is
in evidence that property in that district will not
bring as good a price now as it would when the
executors took the estate ; and it is evident that
a wooden building is not worth so much by the
ten years during which it has been subject to
decay. I have, however, announced that I will
not review tbe action of the executors in holding
the house and land ; and that, as to the mortgage
on which they have, been paving interest, they
must charge themselves with interest at the same
rate, being one per cent, on the funds in their
" I feel it my duty to censuie the mode of
treating the estate. Trust funds should not be
merged in the private business of trustees, but
6houId be kept eeparate, and invested in the best
securities which tbe country affords. English
authorities go further. Lord Kenyon, as cited in
Story's Equity Jurisprudence, says : It was
never heard of, that a trustee could lend an in
fant's money on private security. Tin's is a rule
that should be rung in the ears of every person
who acts in the character of a trustee for an act
may very probably bo done with the best and
honestest intention, yet no rulo in a Court of
Equity is so well-established as this.' See sec
' I do not seo bow this case can escape the
operation of the principles established in this
Court in Rosa Bartlett Duncan's case 3rd Ha
waiian, p. 843. In that case the guardian merged
tbe ward's estate w ith his own, and reared her.
When called to account, he showed that be bad
merged and consumed her tiroperiy, but claimed
tbat he had incurred a greater expense than tlie
income of the property, if it bad been put at in
terest. He had kept no accounts ; yet the Court
held that he was responsible for the principal, if
he had diminished or consumed it without license
from the Court. This is an extremely siui lc
rule, and the only safe one for the property of
minors. What a guardian may spend is the
income, or so much thereof as may lie required.
He may not reduce th principal, as ho may not
sell thereat estato without license obtained from
" 1 therefore decide that the guardians hold
now of this estate the sum which they charged to
themselves at the rendering of accounts as execu
tors less, however, the commissions which they
had a right to charge."
On appeal, this decision was sustained by flic
Full Court, in the following terms :
44 Having heard the arguments of outihel on
both parts, and considered all the circumstances
of the case, we find it similar in every respect to
that of Iiosa Bartlctt Duncan, and therefore feel
obliged to adopt tlie foregoing decision of Mr.
Justice McCulIy, as rendered in Chambers.

ness of the hate against Criinbett.i is defeating its
end. The present out-look of Europe is too som

not to reflect; the amusement of pulling d iwn and
setting up Cabinets, must b'j limited ( iinbctta

lic opinion ; he has not m idi France the first
flower of the earth and the first gem of the sea, in
the space of two months; he has been obstinate
like Polignac, Guiz t, Oilivicr and Thiers ; he has
not humored men of immense self-imnoi tance, and
has not been ;n;liatiRg io . Lis .manner towards

bis ministry on the Scrulii lc lix!c, a matter
about which the country cired very little, but the
newly elected deputies a great deal, sii.ee it signi
fied a new general election at an early date. But
even all these counts of indictment do not merit
the fljod of foul abuse and mis-iiitei pret.itioii
heaped upon Ciambetta. Still less the total for
getfulness of all the services and pitched b.iftlcs
he fought for tlie Republic since 1863. In limit
ing beforehand the rights of the Congress-, Ciam
betta was unfortunately both 1'ght anl wrong.
In principle, the Congress, that is, the two Cham
bers united in common, can do everything, save
change a man into a w mi in. But if its work in
the present instance were not circumscribed in ad
vance, the Senators would decline voting the call
ing of that body together. Once in s'.inc.t the
Congress could revise the Senate out of existence,
abolish President (irevy, form themselves into a
Convention, remain permanently sitting, never to
be dissolved, save by an 18 Brum iire a 2 Decem

timely question of the &:rulin de lisle, and making
a Cabinet matter of its acceptance, thuf complica
ted the imbroglio. Of course a transaction w ill
be arranged, for French p-jli'ieians, like cats, fall
on their feet, and despite all the blundering of
their legislators, the French arc one of tho rich
est nations in the world. But I think they would

their favorite bone, that of making and uninkirg

Zola's now romance, Ptt-lhiuillc, is appearing
in the (loulois, the story is based on adultery
among the middle classes, for it appears tho Dco
aloguu lias different manners of being violated ;
ho intends to draw no conclusions evidently leav
ing the reader to deduce such hiiusell, as in the
Qatc of the Assumtnoir, and like that work too, it
will be painted with a brutal sincerity. Molicre
described cuckold husbands us grotesques ; later,
society viewed them as dishonored ; to-day thejf
arc regarded simply us deceived. In tho brilliant
and corrupt society of the eighteenth century, A
faithful couple were rcgirdcd as a laughingstock.
Tola appears to lay down, that in tho upper clas
ses, adultery is especially winked lit, and in tbe
lower docs not count, ii i only in the middle
classes that the matter becomes tragical. On the
other band it is but m the middle classes where
the astonishing spectacle is to be witnessed, of the
wife's paramour being the husband's bosom
friend. Ii the husband aware of II, o Unison, is
be blind, is be stupid? The paramour gives bis
arm to th.; wile in public, while tho husband
carries her shawl, he cats at their table, they are
suoin friends, the wife alone icmaius a sphinx
between the two. All this situation forms the
clou, the pivot of hundreds of plays. But what
passes in the hearts of such three personages is
what Zola intends to lay bate.

The Dios.toi e. By aid of the dioscoe, an
ingenious instrument brought to public notico
during the Parisian Electrical Congress, patrons
of the drama will henceforth be able to see as
well as bear their favorite operatic and histrionic
artists without m jving a yard from home. Tho
apparatus consists of a small 44 of jectivc " lens,
fixed in a position comm Hiding tho stage of
soai'j theatre, and connected by an electric wire
with a diminutive white gla:s plate, which may
be framed and set iu tho panel of a private draw
ing room, however distant Irom tho lay-house
in question. Total daikness having been ob
tained in the room I nnished with a dioscope, a
perfect picture of tho stage, its scenery, actors,
and so fortb, faithful in color nnd absolutely re
producing the whole performance, will become
visible upon the surface of tho glass plate. Sup
plemented by a telephone communicating with
the theatre, the dioscope will therefore enable its
owner to spend his evening nt tho opera in dress
