The practice of tying up horses and wagons to a
fence across the sidewalk is a practice that
ought certainly to be deprecated. A case in point
occurred on Tuesday last, coiner of Merchant
and Alakea streets, where some ladies
were compelled to plod through the muddy
road owing to the sidewalk being blocked up
with an express wajon, which the driver is in the'
habit of leaving there at all times. He should
fasten his horse in the middle of tba street.
In an article re-produced in these columns on
Wednesday, it was stated, that the sugar product
of the Sandwich islands last 'season, reached
120,000 tons. As this is about three times the actual
amount produced, so we are informed by Mr. S. N.
Castle, we take the lilerty to point out for the
lenefitof the Portland Journal of Commerce that
45,000 tons is nearer the mark and that the estimated
export for the current season is, at the outside,
C0.000 tons, or 120,000,000 lbs.

i At the annual sile of seats iu Fort Street
C-'urch last Monday eveniug, the plan, was
adopted of allixing stated prices to each pew,
aud then calling for bids for choice. It was
explained that the amount offered was over aud
alMve the regular annual rental, and Mr. P. C.
Jones. Jr., offered and obtained "first choice"
for 310l.tKJ. The next lot of pews commanded
$."i0.00 premium, then a large number sold for
$10. 00. aud finally a few very few were
rented at the sum affixed without any premium.
A very handsome sum was realized by the sale,
and we heartily congratulate the pastor and
rustees upon the rosult of thiS'crucial test of
he, church's popularity and life.
The recurrenc. of the twentieth anniversary of
the wedding day of Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Hassinger
last New Year's eve, was appropriately remem

;cveniug met at the residence of the happy pair, for
'the purpose of congratulating them on their good
health and happiness, lhe occasion being known
as the "china wedding day," there was sent, as
tokens of remembrance, complete dinner, coffee,
fruit, tea, and dessert services ; besides a great
many other beautiful and useful articles of china,
glass and crockery ware. As a token of esteem.
His Excellency the Minister of Interior, presented
Mr. and Mrs. Hassinger with a beautiful set of
silver table and tea xpoons and forks. Crowning
the elegant gifts was the "bridal wreath" worn by
Mrs. Hassinger ou her wedding-day, with all its
freshness and beauty unimpaired, fit emblem of
the life long happiness, the passing years have
brought to its fair wearer. Amongst the guests
were not a few who saw the wreath worn on the
wedding day twenty years ago. Music, dancing,
mirth aud jollity filled up the flying hours, and
left the memory of a joyous reunion alike. with

A. I. Bell. Esq., proprietor and editor of the
.s'.iu Fraurieo Merchant, arrived hure jer City of
Sydney. We are pleased to wulcoiue this gentle
man who is on a visit to the L. lands. He has fre
iiuently devoted columns of his ably edited journal
to a discussion of Island interests. At a time when
a sort of anti-Hawaiian prejudice seemed to be
rampant in a portion of the San Francisco press,
and another portion was silent or indifferent we
noticed that the San Francisco Merchant spoke out
boldly, and in no uncertain tone, expressing fair
aud generous views in regard ta Hawaiian affairs,
and the editor, Mr. Bell, who is now with us on a
visit is entitled to a special courtesy at the hands,
not only of planters, but of every resident and
well wisher of the country. We have had the plea
sure of meeting Mr. Dell and we are happy te in
troduce him to our readers as a superior and
courteous gentleman whom we trust will meet
everyw here with a cordial welcome. We note that
the Son Francisco Merchant is published in the
Spanish and English languages, and circu
lates largely in Spanish America, and thus
the Merchant is contributing largely to cir
culate correct information about these Islands in
Mexico and South American States.

A Sydney correspondent says that a novel in
vasion of the steamship Uansa, in Sydney harbor,
took place on the 25th October, in the form of a
swarm of bees, which settled on the vessel iu three
companies. Accepting it, possibly, as a ieiicitious
omen, the crew immediately engaged in the enter
prise of bousing the honey-makers. The presence
of beehives on board an ocean steamer is a " new
departure " iu maritime experiences, though how
the bees are to exist during the voyage is a mystery,
unless they are put on regular sugar rations.
Messrs. J. A. Palxeb. and W. W. Kilbourn,
both of whom are so well and favorably known in
the drug business, purpose opening a new drug
store on Fort.-Street next dooVto Max Eckart's
jewelry store. Mr. Palmer, has recently returned
from the United States, whither he went for tho
purpose of selecting his own stock." The goods are
now on the way, and Mr- Palmer assures us that
they comprise the best quality of drugs and
chemicals, also a large and varied stock of genuine
perfumery, soaps, toilet appurtenances and fancy
goods. We are assured that this Pharmacy will be
found to be one of the neatest and most compact
in this city, and for the convenience of customers,
it will be kept open during the evenings, and cer
tain hours on Sundays. The style aud name of

HANG LCS'O KEE VS. MARSHAL PARSE AND POLICE
The mtin points taken bv counsel for Han?
Lung Kee and Co. in their suit for damages for
an alleged illegal search warrant acrainst JuJce
Jlickerton aud Marshal Parke, heard before
Chief Justice Judd Thursday, Dec. 21, were as
follows : "
That no legal warrant for arrest or search can
bo issued unless upon au affidavit charging a
criminal offense, and that some personal know
ledge, or at least belief, must be sworn to,
suspicion alone beiucr insufficient.
That according to Act 12 of the Constitution
tho place to be seavched and the persons to be
seized must be particularly described in the
complaint. The complaint in this does not
maiutain the namu of any of the plaintiffs nor
their firm name, merely "No. 21, Hotel street."
That the owners or lessees of premises on
which sotuo one suspects " that opium is con
cealed," are liable to arrest and search, no
householder is safe. But no criminal offense is
specified or charged iu the complaint or warrant.
lhat the process issued and served iu this
case is one unknown to the law, and all who
issued, served, or authorized or ratified its ser
vice, are liable in damages.
The amount of damages is of no consequence,
the main thing h iug lhat the right of Chinese
before the law shall be respected.

(Before the Chief Justice sitting in the place of
the Police Justice of Honolulu.)
Hang Lung Kee & Co. vs. R. F. Bickkrtox and
V. C. Parke.
The following is a brief summary of the judg
ment delivered in this case
This is an action of trespass on the case, the
c.mipIiiiDt alleging that on the 5th November last
the plaintiffs premises were searched and the
plaintiffs disturbed, insulted, ill-treated and
assaulted by one F. Marcos and B. Oadt and
others, policemen, acting by the unlawful author
ity and orders of R. F. Rickerton, Police Justice,
and W. C. Parke, Marshal of tho Kingdom," in
contravention of the plcintifls private rights
under the law, to their damage $200.
(The circumstances of tho issuing of the war
rant on the 13th October, and its execution on
the 5th November, 1882, have been previously
publibhcd in these columns, also copies of form
of search warrant used on this occasion.)
It is not claimed that the Marshal had any per
sonal knowledge of this process, and the Attorney-General
contends that so far us he is con.
cerned, tho form of the process is immaterial, as
he did not receive it nor execute it himself, nor by
his deputy, ns constables are not appointees or
deputies of the Marshal. Ou the other hand it
is contended that in the eye of tho law, the Mar
shal is personally present when any process is ex
ecuted, and that he is responsible for tho acts ol
bis deputies and or all oliicers executing process.
The power of removal of constables by Mar
shals is not supposed to attaoh responsibility, for
this is also vested in the Governors, ntid in the
Judges of the Courts of Record and Police Jus
tices, the latter not being executive officers. To
hold an officer responsible for the actsol an under
official in the same department whom he does not
appoint would be an anomaly and an injustice.
lhe warrant was not received Dy the
Marshal; nor was it lodged in his office, and by him
put Into the hands of an officer to be executed;
nor did he take any part in its execution; nor was
be in any way coguizant of it.

supported by oath or affirmation and describing
the place lo tic searched, and the person or things
to be seized. lhe statute also (Penal Code,
chapter 48, section 4) prescribes that a "Search
V arrant can in no c;i?e be granted, but on uluda-
vat 6ettitig forth nuliicient facts in the opinion of
the Maistrnie to justify tho issuing of cuch war
rants." His Honor considers that the facts of the affi
davit itscli must le such as to afford grounds for
belief that the facts exist, and that the magistrate
must be convinced that there is "probable cause"
for issuing the warrant or making the charge.
The affiant must 6 wear to sufficient fads which in
the opinion oi the magistrate would justify the
issuing of the warrant, and this affidavit must be
according to the "belief" of the affiant.
His Honor failed to understand how a suspicion
that Fundry opium is concealed on the premises
of "A" answers the requirements of the statute.
It is not a criminal offense that opium is concealed
on a person a premises, without me averment
that it is in the posre.ion of some person. The
essence ol the offense is the unlawful possession
of opium, not the mere (act of its existence con
cealed on a person's premises. 1 think the affi-
divit should set lortb that the ulfl int believes that
opium is in the unlawful possession of a named
person, concealed on certain specified premises, in
order to authorize the magistrate to issue the war
rant, and anything short of this is insufficient.
The 12th article of the Constitution also pre
scribes that the place to be searched shall be de
scribed. II the Magistrate was deceived by the
affidavit in respect to the same. Hung Le Kee, he
The 12lli article of the Constitution in declaring
that "every person has tlio right to be fecured
from all unreasonable searches and seizures of
his pei son-his house, his papers and effects," se
cures to the citizen a highlv valued and impor
tant civil right. Says Judge Cooley, "an unlaw
ful search and seizure is an aggravated trespass,
and should be visited with corresponding damages.
Search warrants are allowed to be used only alter
a showing of legal cause under oath to the satis
faction of the Court or Magistrate.
The Courts must watch the summary processes
with extreme care, and abuses of them though
unwittingly made, must be corrected.
"I ought to say that the form of complaint
and warrant used in this cace, being printed
forms and presumably prepared by the Law
Office of the Government, were well calculated to
throw the magistrate off his guard." The
search was not conducted with violence or
special indignity ; etill there was an unlawful in
vasion of the plaintiff's premises. "The plain

Hilo, December 28, 1882.
The water front presents a busy ftceuo to-day.
There are four vessels in port the Ida Schuauer,
the W. II. Beed, the Likelike and the Mary
Dodge (from Humboldt). They are discharging
cargo, and what few drays aud carts we have are
busy. Thee "Sleepy Hollow" of Hilo is only
aroused from its slumbers on steamer day. Hut
no Hip Van A V inkle awakes from his sleep to
wonder at the changes made; for there have been
no changes in Hilo for more thau a decade. The
Reciprocity Treaty has benefited the plantations;
but the village itself, like a town on the track of
a railroad, has reaped no advantages, except a
view of the passing wealth of freight and pas
sengers. The day which reminds an Englishman of
holly, the yule log, the boar's head aud plum
pudding passed over in Hilo as quietly as a Sab
bath. It appears as if they all thought that the
birth of the Messiah was placed on the wron
day; that it should have been the 2oth of June
instead of tho 25th of December ; that it was
merely conventional; that the wise men shep
herds iu sammer always had their flocks ou tho
hills, and not iuthe plains, as they have to this
day. In the winter they drive them into the

was rolling, they may have some excuse for not
coming up to the Creedmoor trals at target

DUTY ON' HICK.
Mb. Editob: The provision of the treaty
which remits tho duty upon rice is not the' one
which has proved onerous to the United States,
but on the coutrary, the. only one which has not
inflicted any commercial loss upon them. Be
fore the treaty, we sold to them 3,000,000 paituds
rice at 78 cents ; last year 9,000,000 pounds
at 4. ceuts. The duty remitted is 22Jc. per
pound. The consumers of our rice now pny
fully as much as before the treaty, less the
amount of dutjT remitted. Every cent lost to
the United States treasury went to the consumers
of our rice and not to the Hawaiian planters.
But tho Uuited States have not only lost noth
ing by encouragiug onr rice production, but
have had a positive laeneftt. Without the
treaty, they would have had to import last yiar
6,000,000 "pounds rice more from China, and
also would have had to pay coin for the whole of it.
There is no reason to suppose that the export
of produce of the United States to Chiua would
have been increased if thcf had imported more
rice from there. . For our lice the United States
pay one-half in coin and one-half iu goods. The
lumber, bagging, tools, guns, shot, powder, part
of the clothing used by our rice planters would
not have been imported to Hawaii from tho
United States if we had not sold our rice to
them. The rent for rice laud of which the larger
part is paid to small land owners, and which
amounts to one-sixth of the value of the crop, is
largely speut for goods imported from tho
United States. The whole profit of this trade
is clean gain to them. But it may be sa d ;
the rice is produced by Chinese, and the anti
Chinese feeling of the Californians has produced
a desire to reinipose the duty on rice. It would
be rather nonsensical, as the China-rice, which
would have to take the place of the Hawaiian, is
also produced by Chinese and they really roiin
pose the duty upon themselves. No. 1, China
rice is quoted in San Francisco at $G.50, to sell
ours at $5.00 per cwt., we would have to produce
it $1.50 per cwt. cheaper; that we cannot do that,
should be clear to everybody. We could not sell
ours for less than 7 ceuts duty paid in California,
and we could not find buyers for more than 3,000,
000 lbs at that price. Our rice production would
have to be reduced to that amount for export.
Two thirds of our rice plantations would have to
be given np, and they will not be given np be
fore every rice-planter is bankrupt. That may
be quite gratifying to some Californians, but
will they pay two cents per pound more for their
rice and lose a part of their trade to bring it
about (?) The rumor that the reimposition of
duty upon rice is one of the modifying conditions
named by the United States has beeu started in
Honolulu. Are there people on the Islands who
wish for more laborers aud are selfish enough to
ruin another industry for no other purpose than
to get them? Have, perhaps, the sugar planters
offered the rice planters as a vicarious sacrifice
for their own mismanagement to the United
States, and expect the sacrifice to be accepted?
If their attempt to scare King Kalakaua into dis
missing the present ministry had beeu successful,
the rice-planters would have had small cause to
hope that their interest would find no considera
tion, while now they may hope not lo serve
as scape-goats for the real sinner?, who assisted,
or at least did not prevent, one of the United
States monopolists to convert the free sugarcluuse
of our treaty, which treaty is intended for the
equal lienefit of sugar producers iu Hawaii, and
sugar-consumers in t..e States, into the means
of filling his pockets from the earnings of all
bu jar-consumers west of the -Rockies, and
thereby caused the fierce opposition to the
treaty. E. L.

" The British Government wanted to send us
immigrants from the East Indies, but as while
here they would have to be under the control ol
their own Government, we could uot consent to
do that under the existing treaty." He then goes
on to say that we are having a large measure of
success with Portuguese immigrants, and that an
order baa been sent for 3000 more families.
A resident here, af British birth, did some

other residents ; but wnfil 1 saw Mr, Carter'

The Marine Railway Finished tn in Good
Wcrkln? Order. Successful Hauling Up
of the Stmr. Mokolii on New Year's Day.
Crowds of poople nssembled ou Monday after
noon at tire Marine Railway works to wituesa
the hauling up of the Stcutmr Mokolii. Tha
launching of the Cradlo had been coiniuoucod in
Sat in day last and was successfully completed
ou Moi.day, ami at 3 p.m. sharp, the Str. Mokolii
steamed up aud entered into uud upou it, and
after a little delay in arranging the blocks eto.,
the ponderous machinery was started and with
cradle and steamer upon it was slowly and surely
drawn up on the ways. Everything woiked per
fectly, not a hitch uuywhere, and every
one was loud in their praise of the plnck and
enterprise of tho originator, Hon. S. G. Wilder,
aud tho contractor, Mr. Ciandall, ably assisted
by Mr. Tucker aud a ataffof thorough workmen.
The cost of the railway to the Government is
$100,000, and is bused to Mr. Wilder for 15
years at $5, OtH) per annum a fair interest ou
It Mas remarked by a' grtvtt many practical
men present at tho works yesterday that lhe cost
seemed to be very low for t uoh extensive and,
complete works, and the Government and people
are to be congratulated that the contract for
building the sumo fell into hu. h good hlinds.
After the Mokolii is donned mid rcpuircd, tho
Likelike will bo hauled up an.l cleaned, to be
followed by the Lehua and Klluuea Hou.
Duo notico of these events will bo giveu
through the newspapers, so that everyone niny
witness the same.
Mr. Wilder purposes tdai ting a ship building
yard iu connection with the Marine Railway
works and is ubout to build u large steam
tug for Honolulu harbor. Plana and iqmciflea
tions for soma are already made out and work
will be commenced immediately. It is necessary
as Mr. Wilder nays to have always on hand a
largo force of nieu ready at a moment's
notice to undtTt.-iko the repairs of large ves
sels that may bo hauled up on the railway for
repairs. Every one is now wondering why
the railway was not bufll when we had
our harbor full of whaling vesaels, the answer ia:
we did not have then both the men of pluck and
capital that we have now ; wo may have had the
men, but they had not tho capital. Tins marine
railway is a grand success, and should bo widely
advertised, aud mado known throughout the world
that Honolulu now jkimsosmo the facilities for re

Determined to Undersell.
Notwithstanding the impudent, ignorant, ai.d
audacious notice published in your paper by A. M.
Mellis regarding his personal attack on me, and
his ability to sell his goods at bed-rock prices, and
other similar fabrications matter, I would say that
his tirade by this method to deceive the public has
long since beeu fully played out; and even the
native clement h.i. lx;cii too often deceived by over
charges, and good . palmed oft on them entirely
adverse to what he represented them to be.
Compare for one moment my large, varied, aud
splendid stock in my fancy and dry goods depart
ments with tho miniature assortment of A. M.
Mellis. Wht-ii I dissolved partnership with Mellis,
some two years ago, the store then was no largor
than his is now; but since that time I have in
creased my wtore four "times its former size, and
even now my stock is too largo for the store. Is
it any wonder that I undersell Mellis? It is not
the slightest difficulty for me to si ll my goods In
any department from 2o to 50 jer cent, lower than
him, andI have plain and conclusive facts to
prove the assertion, all of which Mellis knows as
well as the public, but like some natures when
dillicujty arises trade falling off, etc., he risks his
last chance to redeem himself by publishing a
sickly card to mislead tho public. The actual
drawback to A. M. Mellis as a buMix-ns man is his
non-acquaintance with the Eastern and English
manufacturing houses which sets him all at seaa
when buying as he does indirectly paying high
prices tnrougu commission agencies and lindiuir
my prices so far below his. It would bo
snnpiy riaicnious for me to compare my choice,
well selected, and varied stock, importing as I do
directly from tho manufactories abroad, with the
fow lines of remnants of A. M. Mellis" small stock.
If one-third of my stock of dry and fancy goods
were placed iu A. M. Mellis' store, there would not
be iiulhciont spuce left to bang a minature portrait
of the proprietor, A. M. Mellis. I would advise
Mr. Mellis to start out in tho new vear with fair
dealings and honest representations, and apply
himself to hu business instead of falsifying Lis
neighbor; and making indiscreet; assertion,
which eventually will terminate sadly against
him. i be jealous, as Mollis basso conspicu
ously shown himself to bo bv his card, simply
because my well-regulated prices and goods are
drawing off his Bmall custom is a sad omen indeed
to Mr. Mellis, but if ho cannot compete with mo in
goods and low prices he nmstjdnk into oblivion, as
timo and tide waits for no man iu this enlightened
Relieving, from the kind and generous patronage
bestowed upon me, and feeling fully assured that
my word is to be relied upon when 1 say I can un
dersell Mellis, that I always have and always will.
I remain, respectfully,
Cuas. J. Fisuel,
