SUPREME COURT. APRIL TERM. 18S3.
Before Judd. C. J . and Austin. J.
IlKX VS. KO.M KWKI.
OiMMDN OF THE COURT BY JUHl, C. J-
Tlit- f.-iidatit was convicted in the Police
Court f Honolulu on a charge of importing
I tjt:: in in vio ation of the statute.
; He i.i!H';ili'.l to the Supreme
liiiK-a. .n tli- i-oint of law that the fact- al-
I 1 lil i t warrant his conviction. The
Court, having hcanl counsel, were of opin
ion ih.it the oirciie ha'l leeii made out and
that tiie cuuvk-tion was right. The defend
ant's conn-el now move the Court for a
reductio-i )f tlie sentence imposed, and the
question is raised whether this Court can,
f in such a case modify the sentence.
The Attorney (Jeneral contends that an
apj)eal of this character, made according to
the latter clause of .Section 1W7 of the Civil
Code, solely on joints of law, if not sus
tained, the sentence of the Court whence
the anneal came remains in force. This
Court held in Hex vs. Culleu 3 Hawn. 122,
that a Bill of Exceptions cannot he taken
from the decision of a Circuit Judge at
Chambers, because the statute designates
the mode for correcting errors in the infe
rior courts, and that mode is amply sulli
cient, to-wst: a general appeal on which
there is a trial tie novo, and an appeal on
the law, in which case the magistrate sends
up according to the "Order concerning Ap
peals," a distinct statement of the points of
Jaw. Such an appeal can, by the terms of
the law he heard only by the appellate
Court in Uanco, which implies that the facts
of the case are not to be reheard, for the
jury is the tribunal to try the facts of a case
appealed to the Supreme Court. This tat
utory method fr an appeal on the law bears
a close analogy to a ISill of Exceptions, be
ing only simpler and capable of being more
easily understood and ai-plieu.
We thiuk its effect is the same as if Ex
ceptions were taken, and accordingly hold
that the sentence of the Police Court must

In the case of L.. S. P. Goulett vs. II. fc. Irig-
loan, Ltiu" a suit brought to recover certain
wages alleged to be du plaintiff for work done
for defendant, the Judge said that he was not
favorably impressed with the plaintiff's testi
mony. Whenever pressed upon a decisive point
his particular memory fails, and he makes some
general assertions. The tickets which
the plaintiff produces la Court do not nave his
name attached to them; they would only seem
to designate the piece of work when it was put
out. 1 he Court discredited particularly the
plaintiff's testimony that during the mouth of
Oi'tobc-r when he worked on weekly wages, the
pieces of work given out to him had no tickets
on them designating whom they were for, aud
the style of making. The Court applied the
niaxiniasu in uno, fnlsus in omnibus, fully
to the plaintiff's testimony. The amount disal
lowed by the Court was 5184. Ihe plaiutin was
also charged with merchandise 37 aud with
cash on account 208, making a total of 5--09 G2.
This exceeded the claim of the plaintiff, which
was for SI'JS 5'. but no jui.Tmcut having boen
asked for the small balance apn ireutly due, the
Court found simply for the defendant with costs.

report : "There will be fairs, monster con

three hundred thousand persons will bo fed,

crown jewels are are already being reset.
Their value is estimate! at six millions of

lions of dollars. It was first used at the
coronation of Catherine II. The sceptre is
ornamented with the famous Orlof dia

points to the imminence of a revolutiouary

ings were held last night, mainly in those
quarters of the city inhabited by working
men, and all were largely attended. At
the Belleville meeting, one of the orators
declared that 50,000 men, provided with
arms, were ready to rise iu iusurrectiou at
a moment's warning. An officer of the
secret police, who was present at the meet
ing disguised, attempted to arrest tne
speaker, but the latter was hustled away
by his frieuds. The situation is like that

New York, March 12. A Washington dis
patch to a morning paper yesterday announced
that efforts were making iu ashington to have
an extra session of the Senate called to consider
the Mexican treaty, and it was intimated that
the President might be induced at an early day to
summon a session of the Senate for that pur
pose. To ascertain what truth there was in the
report, reporters j'esterday called upon General
Grant. Grant said he knew of no efforts making
to obtain an extra session, and did not believe
any extra session of the Senate would Le called
Grant's attention was directed to the contrast
represented between the hasty passage of the
Madagascar treaty, and the opposition aud
delay which the Mexican treaty encountered
He replied kc had nothing to say as to the
causes which may have led to such a summary
action in the case of the Madagascar treaty, but
he understood that the failure of the Senate to
pass the Mexican treaty at the last session was
duo to the opposition of the .Louisiana Senator,
who regarded the clauses iu the treaty relating
to sugar as detrimental to the iuterest of forty-
nine firms engaged in the manufacture of sugar.
The forty-nino firms, it may be proper to add,
receive a yearly bounty from the people of $55,
172,008, the 50,000,000 cousnmers paying them
$155,482,915 for tuat which can be bought in
the open market for 100,372,817. The earnings
in 1880 were over twenty per cent, upon their
capital, and they pay less than $3,000,000 in

London, March 15. A terrible explosion oc
curred iu the local government board office iu
Westminster at 9 o'clock to-night, destroying
much property. The report was heard in the
House of Commons and caused alarm. The
concussion was so great that it shook the side
galleries aud the reporters gallery. It being
the dinner hour, few members ot the House
were present in the hall. The Duke of tdin-
burch was in the peers gallery. No one was
injured. It is believed the explosion was
caused by dynamite, and that a deliberate at
tempt was made to blow up the government
The explosion was undoubtedly the work of
Fenians. The adjacent streets are tilled with
myriads of fragments of glass, and heavy plate
of glass is lying iu heaps on the ground. A
stone weighing 200 pounds was projected against
the King street police station, making a hole
the size of a man's head. Nothing will be aUj

The full extent of damage cannot be esti

are guarding the scene. The building has the
p.ppearauce of having been bombarded. There
is a deep trench ten feet by three iu dimensions,
in one room, the floor of which has been liter

The Government has offered a reward of .1000
for the discovery of the authors of the explosiou.
The reward also applies to the attempt on the
Times' t)fQce. Anyone, not the actual culprit,
giving information as to the origin of the explo
sion, will be pardoned.
Sir Charles Dilke. president of the local gov
ernment board, says he thinks the attempt was
not upon himself or other officials of his depart
ment. The evil doers intended to cause a
wide-spread destruction of property. He is of
the opinion the plot originated with the man
agers of the skirmish fund.
Sir Win. Harcourt and other home officials
believe the attempt was directed against the
crimiual inquiry department adjacent lo the
offices of the local government board.
The guards have been doubled at the maga
zine and military centres.
Dubim detectives are assisting the London
police in their inquiry concerning tho explosion, j
New York, March 1G. O'Donovan Rossa says
of the London explosion : " We could not fol
low out our system unless we used tlynamite,
and that is what caused the explosion. There
was no accident about it. It was intended to do
all the damage possible, and it was done to
show Euglaud she had better give Ireland her
own parliament." It could not be claimed that
their actions were dishonorable. As for weapons
all available ones would be used.
Peoria, 111., March 1C. In an interview with
Dynamite Pat Crowe of this city, l)- professed
great exultation at the attempt to blow up the
government buildings of London, but did not
favor the means employed. He prefers the
silent but destructive flames of the torch to the
detonation of dynamite. He thought Iiossa
might have been aware of the plot, and thinks
it undoubtedly the work of the invicibles.
Patrick J. Sheridan, whose extradition Eng
land has requested, said, "The work is that
of Ir shmen, and is but the advance picket of
much more which will follow. England will
shortly see that she must either free Ireland or
sutler the consequences."
A London dispatch of March 10th says : "A
large party gathered to wituess the trial here to

of four miles satisfactorily and fulfilled the re

the Suppression of Blasphemous Literature pro

United States, was married at Fayettville, N. C,
on March 14th to Miss Addie Burr of North
Carolina. The affair was a most brilliant one,
and the wedding gifts and trosseau very elabor

of dark brown siik and plush, trimmed with
pompons. Her hat was of brown velvet, trim

broru ostrich feathers. The other dresses were
very elaborate, being comprised of no less than
fifteen complete suits, with hats aud gloves to

Dixie, wife of Sir Boaumout Dixie, was attacked at
Windsor yesterday by two mu disguised in wo
men s clothes. Her dress was cut with daggers
in several places, but she received no injury.
i.auy r lorcnce was waiting iu a secluded spot
near the woods when the two men asked her
what tima it was. She replied that she had no
watch, aud afterward noticed that though they
wore women's clothes their faces had been
shaved. Much alarmed she started to walk awav,
and was followed by the men, one of whom
seized her. She struggled to escape, but, being
attacked, fell iu a swoon. This tok place at
four o'clock iu the afternoon, and she did not
recover hc-r senses until 4:45 p.m.
The saving of hur life is attributed to her St.
Bernard dog;, which, it is supposed, protected
her while she lay iu the sv&jou. Lady Florence
had no reason to suspect immediate danger, al
though she had been somewhat fearful siuca the
receipt of letters about the Land League. The
last thing she remembers is one cf the men push
ing a quantity of mud into her mouth. Ou her
reeoven she found that both palms were cut
across aud her gloves severed, 'fhere were two
dagger holes two inches apart iu the right
breast of hr-r dress. A broad steel corset rib had
been broken by the weapon, which had penetrat

The Hawaiian Treaty has worked well for the
American sl'ip-building interest of the Atlantic
coast as well as that of the Pacific. Besides the
magnificent fleet of sailing vessels built for the
business between California and Hawaiian ports,
and the numerous steamers and small sailing
etafts engaged iu inter-island traffic, built iu the
United States, Wilder & Co., as we have previ
ously announced, are having plans drawn iu San
traucisco for a steamer of some 900 tons burden
for one of his inter-islaud routes, and now we
learn: A fine iron steamer is to be built at
Philadelphia for Jno. D. Spreckels & Bro., which
is intended for the inter-island trade. Her di
mensions ate length, 195 feet, and width of
beam, 33 feet. She is guaranteed to steam 12
knots ; aud is to have first-class passenger ac
commodations, with separate state-rooms. These
with the magnificent ocean steamers Mariposa
and Alameda, make four steamers ranging from
900 to 3,00;) tons, each built, building or to be
built iu one year by Americans for the business
developed by this reciprocity treaty. Who can
honestly after this say that the benefits the
United States gains by the treaty are not equal
to those it confers on our Island friends? S. F.

that a plant grew in his district which was
largely used in tlie domestic surgery of the
Mexicans, and he advised the General to lay
in a stock of it for use in thr French cnnip.
It goes by the name of "ih,. bIod-staiichinrj

crushed, f f almost instantly arresting the

plant to France, and cultivated it in his
garden at Versailles where it has thriven
excellently ever since, blossoms every rear
and produces a sort of fruit. Meanwhile its
tMi.spiantttion lo European soil has not
robbed it of the quality for which it was
originally recommended to its introducer.
Its recognized botanical name is TruiJvs

of an ornamental plint, nnl is riot dis

in its flowers, it fully deserve, if we may
