W. II. Shipman and T. E. EUarts vs. Chas.
II. Judd and other Commissioners of Crotcn
Lands, Thomas Spencer, and Mafioc
The c iiiinlainants ret forth that they are the
lessees by i.rorer assignments of a Iease.made bj
tbe Crown Laud Commissioners, of the Ahupuaa
of Waiakea. and exhibit the lease. This deiniee
the .huj u:ia, or land of Waiakea, according to
we ten un.i bounds, and contain an are of 95.12S
acres. From thie are reserved four acres w hich
may be selected by tbe G yernmeat for a wharf
lot not to interfere, oowever, wun any ne-n
rond or dace for collecting spawD ol mullet ;
also reserving a certain portion which had been
mciulea in trie lease surve- nuiauum,
but with tbe rrinleze cf Ieasi -his portion
when an existing lea?e should npire ; and abo
reserring a lot f reTiOuelj leased hy rurvey, con
taininz three acres and eeven rods and, except
ine the timber-trees. to hate and to bold all
and singular the said premises above mentioned
and described, with the appurtenances (.except as
before excepted)."' Where this land touches the
sea, id HUo Bay, the boundary is " to high
water-mark sea shore ; thence alone sea shore in
an easterly direction 818 feet, &c."
The complaint alleges that all the fishing
rights appurtenant to Waiakea passed by the
lease as appurtenances, not reserved ; and that
the complainants went into possession of the same
in the month of September. 1877, and enjoyed
the ponsetKion thereof till tbe month ol
1881. hcn their rights were inierfered witb bj
the defendant Judd, then and now Commissioner
and Agent for Crown Landu, who gave verbal
lieenae and privilege of free fishery to the de
fendant Spencer, and to all the inhabitants of
Ililo and Waiakea. Since when many inhabitants
of llilo and Waiakea, wliote names are unknown
to coniDlainantn. have fished ; and the defendant
Spencer ban procured large nete, one of which be
has leased to defendant Wahoe lor nan u.e nsu
caught, and that Maboe baa commenced bis fish
ing. That complainants have notified and warned
all parties against trespass on this fishery without
avail. That complainant had previously enjoyed
a revenue of about $300 per year, of which they
are now deprived.
Tbe bill avers ibat a euit at law would be un
availing against eaid trespassers upon their fisb
ing rights afoiesaid, because of a multiplicity of
puita, and because all ol those wliosd names are
known to complainants ars insolvent, and in
capable of responding in damages; and because
a suit againct one or many defendants will not
prevent the trespaFS (of others), nor can there be
an adequate remedy in damages ; that if said
tiejipasses are suffered to be continued the injury
will bJ irreparable, and that their only remedy is
in Equity, and a writ of Injunction to stny tbe
continued trespass on their fishing rights; and
j-rays for such injunction.
The defendant Crown Land C'lmmis-ioner Judd,
answers denying the right ol the complainants to
tbe fishery. The defendant Mahoa answers that
be is a tenant of. and lives on the Ahupuaa of
Waiakea, and as such tenant has a right to fish
and has only fished uccording to bia rights.
The defendant Spencer is in court, but makes
no answer, and no other parties are cited.
The complainants adduce no testimony except
that of Mahoe who reports that be is a tenant.

trespassers are given, or of other acts of trespass,
except the general statement by Mahoe, that it
is now cons'dered that the fiisbm is free.
What ground is shown by the bill and testi
mony for issuing tbe injunction prayed for?
As against tbe defendant, Mahoe. lie is a
tenant and has a right to huh, subject to the
right of the Konohiki to reserve one species of
fish. Civil Code, Sections 337 to 391.
The delendant Spencer has not fished at all.
The defendant Judd has not fished. And no
other parties aro before the Court.
furthermore, bow are the grounds upon which
an injunction is prayed for sustained ? There is
no prool offered to show that the parties defend
ant are insolvent, any one of them, that they may
not respond in damageo.
It is not shown id any manner that an irre
parable dauiage is being done to the fishery.
Courts of Equity will jinMit injunction, for in
stance, when a mere tie-iuif-er digs into and
Wtrks a mine to the injury of tbe owner, because

or when lie exceeds the limited rights with wli'di

may be nn irreparable damage to the particular
pecies of property. Storys, fcq, Jur, Sec. y'SJ,

o eotiie pi unary equity.
Scuiield vs. van liokkelert, 5 Jones, Lx, 342.
Hut no testimony, no observation of counsel,
and '-otliing known to tbe Court shows that tbe
trespass, it it is such, upon tbe fishery claimed
by complainants does it an irreparable injury,
that tbe fishery is thereby impaired or destroyed
for tbe future. It is an ocean finhery in the open
sea of Ililo Bay, and it is not offered to be shown
hat it will not be as much tbe resort of fish.
when tbe hauls cease as before.
Besides irreparable d image, it is alleged that
there is not an adequate remedy at law. This is
not correct, for the remedy at law by actions of
trespass is constantly pursued in the Courts
of Law of this Kingdom and tbe right in
fishing grounds ascertained and protected thereby.
Section 390 of the Civil Code, expressly gives
district judges jurisdiction to try and punish by
imposition of a fine any tenant or other person
who shall wilfully deprive any Konohiki of bis
fishing rights. This in addition to the general
right of civil action in consequence of any injury
direct or consequential to plantifls property.
In such action the right of these complainants to
this fishery by tbe terms of their lease may be
rai.-ed and determined. So it seems to me tbe
complainants fail in any case and against any
parties to make a case for injunction on this
Upon these considerations, touching first the
proofs shown as to these parties defendant, and
t-cMiid.'v as to the remedy by injunction on the
legal ground ret forth, the prayer of the Bill is
W. Claude Jom;?, for plaintiffs ; E. Preston,
This week has been the last of the
scholastic year for our public schools.
Public examinations and other 4i break
ing up " exerc ises have been the order
of the day, and we should have been
glad, if it had been possible, to give
each of our schools an extended notice.
After the severe way in which the Com
mittee of the Legislature on Education
has reported ou our primary sc hools and
their teachers, it would have been a
source of satisfaction to us to have given
details substantiating, in a general way,
what we hear, viz., that such censures
cannot be justly laid against our Ha
waiian teachers in the Honolulu district.
It is. however, impossible for us to tiud
space for a general report, and we have
to confine our remarks to a couple of
the leading schools of the highest grade
THE ROYAL SCHOOL.
The annual examinations and recita
tions at the lioyal School on Thursday
attracted a large attendance of parents
and friends of the boys and others who
take an interest in the education of our
youth. During the forenoon the classes
were examined in various subjects in their
class rooms, and at noon all assembled
in the large room of the main building,
where the singing and recitations were
given. Nearly fifty of the boys joined
in the singing, and several pieces were
given in choruses in yery good style and
in perfect tune. Declamations were
given by Vincent (who took the prize
for this accomplishment), JN'arzaran,
Fernandez, William Oili and Naaina.
The latter had an Irish piece ( Will ye
lend me the loan of gridiron ?") to give,
and greatly amused his schoolmates and
astonished his instructors by making
his appearance in the recognised stage
costume of the negro dandy, with a
collar that seemed destined to cut otf
his ears. He is clever at recitation, los
ing his own identity in the character
he simulates. Young Fernandez also
distinguished himself, and his position
on the prize list shows that he is
equally good in more solid accomplish
ments. Her Royal Highness Princess
Liliuokalani distributed the prizes,
which had been provided by Mr.
Macintosh and some friends of the
school. These were given as follows :
The first prize to Xarzaran Fernandez,
who was first in physics arid in arith
metic. A prize for mapping to W. Oili.
The subject taken was the map of Africa,
and Oli and some others were very
creditable production. The decision as
to the best map was made by a number
ot visitors present. Prize for geography
John Kalai; prize for recitation. Vincent
JN. Fernandez also received the prize for
the highest number.of marks in the past
working 'ear, and must therefore, be
reckoned the Dim of the school. In con
clusion, Hawaii Ponoi was sung by all
the school, and cheers were riven for
the Principal, the. Teachers, the School
and the holidays, the sincere ring about
the last cheer showing that the boys
strictly appreciate the truth of the old
adasre, "all work and no play makes
Jack a dull boy."
FOKT STREET SCHOOL.
Fort Street School broke up on Friday.
ccoruing- to custom the morning was
spent in a general examination f the
classes by the teachers in separate rooms
A number or parents and friends of the
upils were present. Hon. C. 11 Bishop,
'resident of the Board of Kducation. Hon.
J. Mott Smith, a member of the Board, and
U. ij. Baldwin, sq., the Board s Inspector
of Schools, with many friends if education.
als attended the examination and closing:
proceedings. After the class work was
finished the scholars assembled iu the large
hall, and sang some choruses in a manner
which called forth the enconiums of some
specialists in music who were present. JThe
singing was toliowed by an extremely-
pretty display of Fan-drill. A dozen little
girls fiom the primary department of the
school, ranging from six to eight years in
age, formed tne minature army of flirts.
who went through their exercises under
command of Miss Mossman iu splendid
style, Keeping time to perfection, eliciting
hearty and well deserved applause from all
present, and especially from the married
ladles, who must nave sighed to think how
different their captures in the matrimonial
market might have; been had they been
properly initiated into these mysteries in
their early days. The sight was a very
pretty one, and we are glad to bear that
the little darlings are all to be photograph
ed in tneir pretty costumes anu tneir most
piquant attitudes. Some prizes were dis
tributed, of which those for mathematics
and arithmetic were generously provided
by Mr. Baldwin. The mathematical prize
and the prize for history in the first class
fell to Miss Grace Gordon Robertson. This
young lady also attained to an unusual dis
tinction for one of her sex. It is the custom
to confer the title of Captain of the school
on whoever takes the largest number of
marks during tne year for conduct and pro
ficiency in studies. For the first time in the
history of the school a young lady has se
cured this position, and her name will be
duly recorded, on the board appropriated for
the purpose, as the Captain for 1882. The
arithmetic prizes in the 2d, 3d, and 4th
classes were awarded to Edmund Hart,
Robert Strehl and Fred Peterson. A prize
for History, in the 2d class was taken by
Antonio Perry. Certificates for passing the
Commou School course were awarded as
follows: To Isabella Lish man (dating De
cember, 18S1) Antonio Perry, Florence
I'urvis, Annie I'erry, JNannie JNeedharn,
Zoe Atkinson, and Helen Coney. . In con
clnsion we may say that in a talk with the
parents of scholars who were present we
found them unanimos in expressions of
satisfaction at the progress made by their
children, and at the pleasant relations which
evidently prevailed between the teachers
and pupils and among the teachers them
selves. THE BISHOP'S COLLEGE SCHOOL,
or lolaui College as its native schollars pre-
ter to can it, oroke up ior tne long vacation
ou Thursday last. There was a large at
tendance ot those interested in the school
and in the boys, including His Majesty the
iving, Her .Majesty the (j.ueen lJowager, 11.
R. Highness Princess Liliuokalani, the
Biitish and French Commissioners and
Mrs. Wodehouse and Madame Feer, Mr.
Baldwin, the Inspector of Schools, and
many leading members of the Anglican
Church in Honolulu. The boys received
His Majesty on his arrival in open rank
carrying the school banners, and sang the
national antnem. ine programme ori
exercises for the day was varied, and both
the singing and the recitations showed a
most satisfactory progress on the part of
the boys since our last notice of the school
was published. Mr. Whalley and Mr.
Swan have evidently worked in harmony
and- worked with a will to give to this
school the high tone and character aimed
at by its founder, and it is with sincere
pleasure that, bcth from observation and
inquiry, we find ourselves able to congratu
late them on a marked success. Among the
recitations we may especially commend
"That vulgar little boy." by George Harris,
the "Speech of Spartacus" by S. Mehenla,
and the " Ueatu or Arthur" by Matthew I
Manuia. The latter piece, perhaps the finest
work of Tennyson's genius, was given in j
a manner which showed that the reciter i
had made the poet's thoughts and imagery j
his own, and saw a3 he spoke the dying king, i
the moonlit waste and lake, the shadowy t
barce. The exercises were followed bv the :
distribution of prizes at which 11 is Majesty I
the King presided, inese were given as
follows: For conduct and Divinity, Mat- :
thew Manuia; Scripture (lower division ) i
Thomas Martin; good conduct, 1st E. Styles, j
2d Kim Cha; History, and geographj',; 1st, j
E. Styles, 2d, George Harris; Mathematics, j
Meheula; Arithmetic (especially mental :
arithmetic) Leloa; Music, Meheula; Latin, j
M. Manuia; English Grammar, 1st, D. I
Notley; 2d, Tai Cheu; Reading, Writing,
and Composition, 3d class, Anaheu, lower j
class, Ilafemauo Meek; Drawing, 1st Aholo, i
2d Ahung; Physiology, Manuia; Scripture, !
George Coopert Reading and Spelling, :
Josiah McCarthy. The two last mentioned
was for little boys. Mr. Furneaux, who ex- :
amiued the boys' drawings spoke of them
as equal to any he had seen in his ex-
perience of schools. '
After the prizes had been distributed the
boys sang Hawaii Ponoi with a will; this
and the previous singing were conducted by i
Mr. Wray Taylor, who has taken a great
deal of pains with the boys. The remain-
uer oi me aneriioou was uevuieu to ainieiic
sports. This was a feature in the affair
which we shou'd like to see all our schools
iu a position to copy. Far too little atten
tion is paid to physical training, yet with
out it the mental faculties themselves must
fail of their full development. The results
of the various events were as follows:
liH-yards race, Kamohai; .-mile race,
C. Stiles; 100-yard race (under 12 years of
age) Stevens; ?4-mile race, (under 12 years
of age,) J. Swinton; 3-legged race, Meheu

from a report s-ut to tht .V. 1". H,ru'd, from its
correspoiio-:;: who was ou board the Invincible:
' At hiIf-p iit is a quiet order was passed
round the deck to load with common shell, and
a gleam of satisfaction shone on tha men's
faces. At seven o'clock signal was made to the
Alexandria t: open the ball by firing one gun.
A heavy boom came across the water. Then
there was an anxious pause. Would the Egyp
tians answer, or would they evacuate the forts?
No sound c:uae from the fort, but at the bat
teries opposite we could see the men loading
guns. Thi-y would fight. The order was given
to commence independent firing, and the signal
was ran up for the fleet to begin a general en
gagement. The deafening salvo from five 9-inch
guns went from the side of the Invincible, while
overhead ten Nordenfeldt guns in the tops
swelled the din which burst forth from all the
ships. From the tops it was seen that the shells
had struck rather low, and the 6ights were
raised from 1,3-53 to 1,5M yards. The Mon
arch and Penelope had both been at work
close at hand, and the roar of their heavy
guns and the ceaseless rattle of tueir Crattungs
and Nordenfeldt machines, au.l the shrieks of
the rockets w hich the Monarch was discharging,
added to the sound of our own guns, made up
a deep continuous din impossible to describe
and bewildering to hear. In any momentary
interval the s und of guns from the other divi
sion of tLe fleet told that they also were hard at
work. A midshipman, in the maintop, signaled
directions of the course of the shells, and the
accuracy cf the fire improved. Meanwhile, the
enemy's shots were coming thick and fast, their
aim being chiefly directed against the Penelope
and Inflexible. They weie firing principally j
round shot. Twenty minutes after the first gun .
was fired from the fort the royal braces were shot 1
away, and immediately after a shot penetrated :
her forward, a sp'.iuter wounding a stoker j
severely. At this time they appear to have got ;
our range pretty accurately, and round and j
conical shot whistled thickly between the masts. '
I think they fought their guns to the last, but ;
the fire of the fleet was so crushing, and the ;
metal so superior, as to make their resistance :
ineffective. They appeared to possess no shells,
which was fortunate for us, for had they used
these instead of rouud shot the casualties !
would have been much larger. As it is, our sue- !
cess, although not bloodless, has been achieved
at a much smaller cost than could have been
expected from the formidable nature of the forts
we had to attack. The most interesting incident :
was the fight between the gunboat Condor, Com- '
mauder Lord Charles Beresford; with Agorni
Fort. His little vessel went close under the
guns of the fort and opened a tremendous fire, '
but was unable to silence it. The Admiral then j
sigualed the other gunboats to assist."
Oue fort after another was sileuced, and about !
II o'clock Arabi Bey hung out a flag of truce.
The gunboat Bittern was sent to inquire his in- j
tentions, but returned without any satisfactory !
answer. Two forts remained uninjured, and no j
promise to evacuate them could be obtained. The !
evident object was to gain time. These forts '
(Fort Pharo and Fort Mers) were then destroyed ,
by the fleet.
Burning and Tillage of the City. ;
Immediately another flag of truce was display- ;
ed and the city was observed to be in flames.
Arabi Bey opened the gaols and withdrew his
troops from the town giving it up to the Bedouins ;
and released criminals for plunder and destruc- j
tion. For three days a terrible scene of anarchy
prevailed. At length the Khedive, as to whose
fate fear3 had been entertained, contrived to send
a message to the fleet saying he was virtually a
prisoner in his own palace at Eamleh and asked j
for an escort. Shortly afterwards he. reached
the Admiral's ship and at his request troops
were landed to restore order in the town. In
this work the British marines and sailors were
assisted by a party of Americans from Admiral j
Nicholson's ship and, according to one account, ;
another from the German fleet. No Italian or i
French troops were lauded. This was on the ;
evening of the 11th. The city has been placed ;
tinder command of Lord Charles Beresford who j
has re-organized a police force. Heartrending j
accounts of the mischief done to the city by the i
plunderers and the number of murders of chris- j
tians are given, but in regard to details the tele- .
grams are very contradictory. The number of !
Christians massacred is variously given from 200 j
to 2,000, but the latest accounts speak of the !
loss of life as having been exaggerated.
Aff.drs lolaod. j
Arabi Bev was found to have withdrawn his ;
troops to Damonhoor, about 35 miles from Alex-
andria. In their flight they laid waste the i
villages they passed through and left the iuhab- '
itants htarvin". Their number is estimated at ;
4,000 to 6,000 besides a large number of irregu- i
lar troops. Some of his troops sent to Cairo to :
incite revolt there were either shot or made pris- j
oners by the commandaut of the city, but the I
latest accounts say that Cairo is in a state of in-
surrection and that tho European population '
had almost all fled to Port Said under escort of '
loyal Egyptian troops.
The Canal. !
The French ilet took no part iu the bombard
S ment, but went off to Port Slid to protect the
Canal. At the latest dates however, France was
making preparations to send troops to Egypt,
(six transports being got ready ai Marseilles for
rthat purpose. Trathc through the Canal was
i interrupted for two or three days by order of the
; naval commanders to avoid risks, but had been
Dervish Pasha, the Turkish Envoy, is roundly
accused of being in league with Arabi Bey. On
19th July, he received an order of recall from
the Porte which he obey.l in such haste that
Admiral Seymour did not hear of it in time to
stop him as he desired to do.
Although there had been two false alarms in
the meantime, Arabi Bey had not, up to the latest
dates, made any attactc ot taken any decided
step. He was provisioning his armv. No at-
tempt to injure the Suez Canal or to menace i
Suez or Ismaili i had been made. j
The Coufereuce is still siting at Constant!- j
uople, and it was understood that military inter- i
vention in Egypt by the Forte, would be re- '
commended. It was considered doubtful whether j
Turkey would censent thus to put its finger into
a hornets' net. .
Uesigaatiou of the Frrnc'i Ministry. '
The action taken by Englaud had received the i
approbation of all the great Powers. In France ;
there was a strong feeling against the Ministry j
on account of their not joining with England iu ;
the attack of Alexandria. It is probable that this
is the reason why De Freycinet and his col- :
leagues suddenly resigned oflice on 19tu instant j
just after obtaining a credit for war purposes and
making preparations for active intervention.
Gambett a spoke against their preparations as 1
insufficient, and disapproved their adherence to '
the idea of having Eypt occupied by Turkish
troops. The ostensible cause of resignation was
defeat on a motion to allow Paris to elect its own '
KeMzaitiou of Jo!m Bright.
Three days after the bombardment of Aleian- ,
dria, John Bright resigned, lie stated that the j
sole cause of his desertion of his colleagues was
that he could not abandon the principle of the J
unholiness of war which he had preached for j
forty years. Gladstone said that he approved
Bright's principle bat not his application of it. !
