A Hawaiian jury having been empanelled, the
first case taken was -
Ilex vs Ninaualii, Kahanni, and Kaukeha ;
assault and battery. Mr. W. O. Smith conducted
the case for the Crown ; Mr. J. Ilussell was for
the defense. The latter made a long and earnest
address, to the jury, lasting forty minutes. A
unanimous Verdict of not guilty was returned.
The Minister of Finance v V. Knudsen and
Ann M. II. Knudsen, his wife. Mr. Preston, on
behalf of the Crown, moved under section 507 of
the Civil Code, that judgment be entered np
at?aint the defendants, and their property the
Ahupnaa of Koloa ; and that a aaleof the land be
ordered to satisfy nuch judgment. The claim of
the Government was for taxes. Mr.' Hartwell,
for defeuduuta, moved that the motion be dis
missed, on the ground that section 503 of the
Civil Code, which provide that " the collector
shall call on each tax-payer at his residence, or
nsnal place of business, or otherwise give notice
to the tax-payers to meet him at convenient
point or settlements of the district, in the
months of September, October, and November,
to demand payment of the taxea assessed afore
said." had not been complied with. The Court
promised to hear arguments of counsel on the
matter at an early date.
i:x v D. Mahoe. Defendant had appealed
from a decision of Judge liickerton's, on the
ground that he bad pleaded " not guilty," whilst
the judgment had been given on the assumption
that he pleaded guilty. Evidence was given by
th prisoner' mother and Manoa in support of
the appeal, but Mr. liickerton'a statement that
the man plea. led guilty in the Police Court was
confirmed by the evidence of Mr. Russell, and
the Court confirmed the sentence already given.

At the conclusion of plaintiff's case, Mr. Cecil
lfuvn, who appeared with Mr. Kalankane for
the defence, moved a nonsuit, on the ground in
the land which the petition called 12 acres while
it was shown that defendant only occupied ten,
and that the land could not be apportioned under
a writ of possession. The Court decided the
point against Mr. Brown, who noted an excep
tion to the mling. The defendant's case was
then proceeded with. Refore His Honor summed

the Conrt to give to the jury. The His Honor
declined, and his decision was again excepted to

Government, obtained leave to amend the de
scription of the land. Mr. Hatch appetred fT
the Company, and Mr. Dole f..r the Trustees of

the evidence for the j-Iaii.tiff had b en taken.
Mr. Hat. h i.ioved for a non-uit,on the ground
First, that C. Kaliaiua h td Dot been shown to

that the Government had show n no conveyance
from Lunalilo to the Government, and until the
agreement was carried out the Government had
no title to the land ; Third, that the Government
were bound by their claim and title, and could
not show that they had any other title than the
one net forth iu their petition, and that it had
been shown that the metc-s l bounds are in
correct as set forth. The Court decided that it
was not necessary in this case to show a convey
ance to the Government, and refused the non
suit. Evidence for the defense was then taken.
After a short retirement, the jury brought in a
verdict for the plaintiff, except for the land of
Kunanahawela. with damages assessed at one
dollar. Mr. Hutch excepted to His Honor's
directions to jury and to the verdict.
Rex vs. A. R. Rowe; selling spirituous liquors
without a license. Mr. J. RusseU appeared for
the- defendant. The evidence iu this case was
to th effect that Rowe had not only sold spirit
nous liquors, but had been engaged iu their
manufacture. As the case attracted a good deal
of attention, and the verdict given has been the
subject of much comment, we give an abstract
of the evidence.
Kilo, k., swore that he had purchased a demi
john of gin from accused, for which he paid $1.
The liquor he drank made him sick and he threw
the rest away. He had Wen a fellow-workman
with Rowe as a smith. Maria, w., deposed to
having bought liquor from Rowe. They had
both drank of the liquor at Rowe's shop. She
had, through drinking the liquor had from
Rowe, got drunk and fought with her husband.
Kameen swore to haviug seen Maria pay money
to Rowe for gin, which he was to get for her.
Keaweopulu, k., swore to having purchased
liquor from Rowe seveial times. He said that
Rowe and Squires promised to pay him if he
would be a witness in the case. Jirn Crow de
posed to having bought a bottle of brandy from
Rowe for $1 5u; and Joe lirown deposed that
he had bought u liquor that looked like brandy
from Rowe, for which he paid $1. Thos. H.
Morton, blacksmith, Maunnakea street, deposed
that Rowe worked for him, but left his employ
about the date this charge was heard in the
Police Court. He saw the old native Kilo give
Rowe money for liquor; it was to be whisky.
Rowe made a colored liquor at his forge. Rowe
told witness that he made $190 a month by sell
ing liquor. He had seen him sell liquor to
Maria. This witness was cross-examined at
some length, with a view of eliciting evidence
of ill-will on his part towards Rowe, which he
For the defense Mr. Russell called a number
of witnesses. Mannhi, w., gave evidence as to
some of the native witnesses for the Crown dis
cussing the case among themselves. L. li. Han
son lived at the American House with Rowe,
and thought he could not carry on an illicit
liqnor trade without his fellow-lodger suspect
ing him. He dcix.sod to an apparent animus
displayed by Morton against Rowe in connection
with this case. John Johnson deposed to Mor
ton remarking that they had got Rowe now, and
if he got off they would have him np again
at once on another charge. Johnson lived at
the American House, and never saw any reason
to suspect Rowe of selling liquor. C. C. Colo
man cave Rowe a good character. Z. Y. Squires,
the proprietor of the place where Rowe lodged,
gave evidence similar to that of Li. Johnson, lie
also said that he had lately sent another man,
named Kaiser, away from the house because his
boarder complained that he had sold liquor to
others. Ashford Spcncr knew Morton and
Rowe. They had been in partnership, and from
what occurred as to a bill of hi own, he kenw
that they had had differences. Rowe was then
heard in hi own defense. He denied the
charge, and claimed that he would not have
been likely to tell Morton of it if he really had
been guilty. He was a blacksmith, and did not
make hi living by whisky-selling. His counsel
put to him the question: Have you ever sold
liquor during the year past to any one ?'' Rowe
paused, and then said : " That i to be proved,
is it not 7 lie denied Laving sold liquor to
Maria and .others, but he had called Maria a
prostitute. 'Maria bad paid to him a dollar what
she owed Kaiser. Squires, recalled, said that
Kaiser came back from Maui December 14th and
left for the Coast about the 11th of January.
His Honor, iu chart-ini; the jury, referring to the
character of the witnesses brought forward by
the prosecution, remarked that they could not
expect it to be otherwise in cases of this sort.
The jury, after deliberating for about half an
hour, brought in a verdict of not guilty.

Secession on the Pacific Coast.
The veto is an accomplished fact. That it is a
wanton violation of an honorable and intelligent
political compact entered into between the Repub
lican party and the people, no intelligent Repub
lican doubts, and no honcnt ono will denv. That
it is a gross abute of the constitutional preroga
tive of the presidential office, by a Republican
president, we cannot ignore. That leading Re
publicans of all parts of the country, outside or
the Chinese belt or States, have betrayed their
party, forfeited their personal honor, it is not ncc-et-aary
to attempt to conceal. That it is a piece
of impertinent egotism for Mr. Cheater Arthur to
have set up bis opinions upon such a question as
this, his rniet ardent personal admirers will not
dispute. Tliat the term ol twenty years' restric
tion ol the Chinese labor importation is the cause
of objection to the bill is worse than an evasion ;
it is a deliberate lie. A bill Tor twenty years may
have been repealed in twenty days if Congress
had so desired. To say that it is an evasion of
the treaty, or in violation of its letter or its spir
it, is another lie, the proof of which is embodied
in the treaty iUelf, and further proof of which is
aSlirded by the testimony of the commissioners
who negociated the treaty. To say that any of
tlve provioiuns of the restrictive measure are in
viol it ion of law i an afterthought of no honest
mind. No lawyer in either branch of Congress
made the suggettlion. Edmund declared its va
lidity. There is not a law student in America
who doe not know that a treaty may bo abroga
ted by a law of Congress. To avoid even the ap
pearance ol an advantage, this treaty was negoti
ated for the purpose of framing this very bill. It
was the final annwer to the last objection toward
restricting Chinese immigration. It was so ac
cepted by ttie Republican leaders in all parts of
the country, and when, after the last Republican
national convention, a resolution was passed re
strictive ol Chinese i in migration the issue was
fairly and fully msde. It was the nio-t prominent
in the last Presidential campaign. The two par
ties. Laving cleared their deck for action, fought
nut the caioraign in the endeavor to load their
broadsides with the strongest arguments upon
this question of labor. It was an open contest
for the support of the labor interests of all the
States. The argument was made in ever manu
facturing community. Wherever men toiled for
wages, there DeuicratK; and Republican orators
tied with each other in the endeavor to rove that
hi i-arty wa the most sincere and tnoct hone-t,
and that it had the het historical labor record.
The Republican rarty leader bent their every ex
eition to prove the sincerity or Garfield's Convic
tion. Reward were oQcrred to discover the
Morey forgery. Detectives were employed, arrests
made, sui:s brought, and investigations had upon
this matter. All over the country, all over the
party, up from the throat of every orator, from the
pen ol every writer, with the beer o! every ward
t4teman, and with the cheer of every primary
magnate, wa mingled the indignant denial that
the Republican party, or any prominent member
of it did not desire to restrict Chinese immigra
tion! "It is a creat evil,"' declared the platform.
" It is an invasion," declared Gaifi.l J. It muit
be restrained in the intercut of the white laboring
men of the Saxon race, and in the interest of the
Africans who are to the land native born. It
was the parallel of the early African importation.
It would in its consequences, repeat the history
of slavery. It would degrade labor. It mutt be
arrested. The Demjcratic party has been true
to its pledges in this respect. The Republican
Karty bas been false to all its professions. It has
etrayed the people, and it bas done it under
false pretences, and with lying and false excuses.
The facts are before u. It is the first time that
a rarty President has, in ignorance and for Belf-
advancement, destroyed his party by the treaeon-
j able betrayal or a declared and accepted political
i principle. It is the first and only time id the his
tory of American politics that party senators and
: a party President deliberately planned to itnruo
' late a portijn or the party, because the States
: directly involved had cot enough Presidential
' electors to make them (ormidalo in a Presidential
j campaign, or enough delegates in a national con
J vention to make their votes decisive or a candidate.
What we ought to do that is, what we Repub
I licans ought to do may not be hastily dctermio
I el. Our party on this coast bas been loyal all
through this contest. It went down with its col
ors nailed to the mast and flyiDg. Our tenator
and members of Congress will remain with the
wreck, and endeavor to save what tbey can per
haps ten years, perhaj five, perhaps nothing. To
those Republicans who have labored so long and
so earnestly, and who have resisted agitation and
expoeed themselves to prevent violence and to up
hold the law ; who have been the friends or social
order, and soldiers for the protection of property
and the maintenance of government ; who have
believed in the sincerity of Republican party
promises, and have been the interpreters of them
to the voting public, the present ia an eui harass
ing position. That this veto has struck a fatal
blow at the Republican party in California no one
can doubt. That it can rally and survive for the
purpose of maintaining the skeleton of an organ
ization may be possible. Whether even so much
of an effort is desirable may be an open question.
We are not prepared to admit that we are willing
to become the tail of a national organization
which has so shamefully betrayed us. We are
not to-day in that mood of humility which would
enable us to gracefully follow where Arthur leads,
or to get down on our knees, and raise our eyes
to the Hoar of Massachusetts in adoration of that
Puritanical sentimentality which has intermarried
itself to commercial greed, and whose Crt ac
couchment is the deformity of an increased Asiat
ic invasion. What we will do, and what we
ought to do, we cannot now determine. What
we will not do for the present, is disobey the law.
We will not countenance any disturbance or vio
lence. We will not agitate in any other than a
peaceful way. It is not improbable that the time
may come when the people or this coast will, in
defense of their interests, be compelled to resist
Chinesa invasion, and will be compelled to resort
to measures not in harmony with the laws of Con
gress. This time will not come so long as there
is any hope of relier from the government to
which we owe "allegiance. It will not come un
til, after careful deliberation, it is apparent that
national allegiance is incompatible with the pre
servation of natural rights. It will not come un
til we are prepared to sacrifice our lives aud our
fortunes for the maintenance of our honor, and to
maintain the lives and fortunes of those who are
to succeed us. At present this Chinese question
is a political one ; it is to be worked out by po'it
ical methods ; and it will not become any who are
Republicans, to blauto other Republicans, if they
shall deem it best to cast their destinies with a
party which, on this question, has never betrayed
the people, and never violated its pledges. The
Waii.uku, April 14.
On Tuesday night thieves got into the Railway
Depot, at Wailuku. They effected an entry by
digging a hole under the wall, and then lifting up
some of the floor-boards. They took a case of
liouor. and were making off with it when the sud
den appearance of a native, who w allocking after
fns horse, made them drop the case, which waa
picked up by the man and returned to the depot
in the niornin".

Uvelv just the thins for cutting and hauling cane.
and sugar. Yesterday afternoon we had quite a
refreshing rain from the south, lasting a few hours
,nly just enough to lay the dust ; everything
bright and lovely this morning.
Captain Hohron s railroad is very busy often
making three trips a day to Wailuku, and convey
ing as many as eighteen car of sugar at a time
from thecu to Kahului.
A Chinaman is putting up a restaurant and coffee
saloon nearly opposite the depot; and a neat cottage
has just been hmshed on the lioinan Catholic Mis
sion premises, where great preparations are being
made for the reception of the JJistinp of Uloa, who
is expected from Lahaina next week.

We have two deaths to chronicle this morning.
viz. : t.. t. .uordon, for some time schoolmaster or
the Mission ; he was a native of Ireland, and died
of consumption. The other an old native, well
known in Wailuku as a fish vendor.

Death of Sir Wyville Thomson.
We regret to record the death of this distin
guished savant, so well and favorably known
to thi community during the visit of the Chal
Obitcauy. Sir Charles Wyville Thomson
died on the 12th of March, at the age of fifty
two. He was born at RousyJe, Linlithgowshire,
on the 5th of March, 1830. Hi exploring ex
peditions in the Lightning, Porcupine and Chal
lenger, in which the "depths of the sea in the
Atlantic and around the world were investigated
with remarkable success, and multitudes of new
discoveries, have made his name familiar to the
people of all civilized lands. The publications
of hi last expedition nre still in progress. After
graduating at tha University of Edinburgh, he
was npjMjiuted, in IMoO, Lecturer on JJotany in
King's College, Aberdeen, and in 1S70, Regius
Professor of Natural History iu the University
of Ediuburgn. His so early departure is greatly
to be deplored. Amtrican Journal of Science.
The Moon and the Day.
That the " devil's in the moon for mischief "
we know on good poetic authority. The moon
is the emcient cause of lunacy, bad weather.
floods, tides, deficient harvests, eclipses and
epileptic fits. From a moral point of view, the
inuuence ol the moon must aleo De regarded as
Tuere is not a ay.
The longest, not the twenty-first of Jane,
Seen half the business in s wicked way.
On which three single hours of mooDahtne smile
Aud then she looks so modest all the while !
It seems, however, that there are more capabali-
ties of mischief in the moon than even the poets
have dreamed of. Notwithstanding our long ac
quaintance with her, it is only now that we are
beginning to tind her out. for bome ages past
the moon has been taking unsuspected liberties
with the length or the terrestrial day. A few
million years ago, according to Dr. Call, the
Astronomer Roval for Ireland, the moon was only
40,000 miles off, the day was three hours long.
and the tides rose and lell Iroua 500 to 1000 feet.
The advantage or this arrangement was that a
great deal or geological work could be got through
in a short space of time. Since then the moon
has retreated a distance of 240,000 miles, and
her attraction has slowed down the earth to one
rotation in twenty-lour hours. So far there is
nothing tj complain of. On the contrary, the
moon's service to the cause or religion in short
ening the geologic milenniums must be held to
entitie her to our gratitude. Unfortunately, she
is not willing to let well alone. Dr. Ball an
nounces that that the "inconstant moon" is still
retiring and that consequently the earth will by-and-by
be reduced to a rotation onco in 1400
hours. It is open to any person or a speculative
turn or mind to think out the effects of this dis
astrous change. Dr. Ball's own speculations re
specting the consequences of lunar inconstancy
are of a peculiarly novel and startliag kind. It
seems that the moon is opposed to the eight hour
system of labor. . The doctor thus expounds hi
view of the matter :
We have heard a great deal about the neces
sity or shortening the hours or labor. 1 wish to
point out that the social reformers who are striv
ing to thorten the honrs or labor are pulling one
way, while tho moon is pulling the other. The
moon is increasing the length of the day. The
change will be very gradual, but nevertheless it
is inevitable. Where will the nine hours move
ment be when the day has increased to 1400
hours? This is a very serious matter."
A serious matter it undoubtedly is, particularly
so if, as Dr. Ball goes on to suggest, evolution
compels the much-enduring human race to adapt
itself to the new conditions. With the bud above
the horizon for 700 consecutive hours, and below
it for an equal space, and with the temperature
during each day touching the extremes of the
pole and the equator, the earth it may he con
jectured, will hardly be any longer a desirable
place ol residence. Yet Dr. Ball supposes that
men may (till go on living. A race may be de
veloped adapted to the situation, and if bo, the
working man of the far future will toil for four
or Eve hundred hours at a stretch. There ia one
way however, io which this outlook, so dis
couraging to the working classes, may be altered.
Says Dr. Ball :
" The question U one lor engineers rattier than
astronomers ; but I cannot help throwing out a
suggestion. Anchor the moon and keep her from
going further out. If you can do this, if you
can alro provide a brake by which the speed or
the moon can be controlled, then yon will still be
able to revel in the enjoyment or a twenty-Tour
hours day. Should thi engineering feat never
be accomplished, you will have only the 1400
hours day to look (orward to."
I commend the subject to the consideration of
our two local claimant for the honor or being
the rounder of the eight hours system." Bjth
centlemen are believed to be under lunar in
fluences. Tbey should meet aDd confer on the
problem bow to anchor the moon. Civis,

Poltxesiax Smartness. One of our Fijian
contemporaries has the following : Decidedly the
unsophisticated Polynesian is hard to beat, as
witness the following: A gentleman who, for
reasons he deemed all-sufficient, had not the most
implicit faith in his houeeboy's honesty, hit upon
the very sensible plan or locking up in a chest
any garments the pockets of which contained
money, and hiding the keys previous to leaving
the boy master of the premises. One morning
lately be forgot this precautionary measure, and
left a certain article ofattiro hanging up in which
was a considerable sum, consisting or gold, silver,
and notes. Some hours alter, on discovering
what he had done, he posted back to make all se
cure, but to his consternation found the garment
had disappeared. After a hurried and unsuc
cessful search, he called the boy, and Bternly de
manded, ' Where is that pair of trousers I left
hanging up here? " 'The trousers? ' was the calm
reply. ' Oh, the one with the money in. I put
it in the box and locked it up, and 1 hid the key
away in the same place where you always hide it
when you lock up the box. Here it is.' The
employer has determined to raise the boy's wages
ana Cud him another master.'
