i'K LAW va OIIIHAMEN.
Every mim is supposed to know
whi.t I- I ho law of tho country in
" which lie lives. It. hi an established
liinMin of the CourtH, that ignorance
of tho ltiv; does not excuse the law
breaker rynomntiit cyh lion
emiMttt U. tho Latin, familiar to
every one who has road law. In
order however (o biing a knowledge
ol the law to those living under it
provision i1 niade for its publication
in the newspapers of tho, country,
printed in the languages in general
ils.0, Hawaiian and English. This
too is m accordance with the statu
tory provision. Section 1 of the
Civil (.'ode is as follows: "No
i ittwi law shall be obligatory with
out being first printed and 'made
publir." Section t of the Code
aU provider that sitter the promul
gation of the laws by publication in
some newspaper, "no one shall be
allowed to allege ignorance- of the
law as an excuse or justification for
u violation theieof."
Xow it is a fact that nearly one
half of the adult male population of
these Island's to-day, is composed of
men who tue no more able to read
and coinpichcud tho laws which are
piinted and published in 'the Hawai
ian and English languages, than the
pi esent writer -would be if the same
were piinted and promulgated in
Chinese. Of course wo mean the
great mass of the Chinese residents
here. If it is conceded that these
people in order to their good govern
ment, .should know the laws of the
land under which they live, then it is
the duty of the Legislative Assem
bly to make some provision for the
printing and publication of a synop
sis, at least, of tho laws in the Chi
Ki:ai. Estati:. The auction sale
' of real estate on .Saturday by Mr.
Adams, did not in some respects

ing to the Jos. Booth esla'te, situated

Co. Tho corner lots on Ueietania
mid Punchbowl streets, brought $3,
400, Mr. II. Macfarlanc being the
purchaser. The six lots on the Kula
okahua Plain, corner of King, Kec
aumoku and Young streets, were
sold, 2 to Mr. Sclig, 8750 each; 2
to Mr. F. Antonc, G2o each ; 2 to

kablcVherovcrtlia horse is donlcsli
catcd and in general use on tho? road
orfflrm. The subject has been dis-
cussed from every conceivable stand
point, snd it lias enlisted tho pro
found attention of the veterinary
student as, well as of the skillful
I mechanic. Now the theory is ad
vanced thfttnll past thdugUfnnd in
vestigation bestowed upon the topic
have been little or nothing more thnn
a mero wasto of time nnd brains.
Tt is claimed by some that bunions,
corns and deformity of the human
feet aro mainly the losult of the
shoemaker's work, and to illustrate
this conclusion reference is made to
the average healthy condition and
symmetry of the barefooted Indian's
pedal extremities as being superior
to the feet of votaries of civilized
fashion. Tho latest claim in regard
to all experiment in horse-shooing is
that they aro evils of domestication
that should bo abandoned. This is
an' idea originating in progressive
America. It has been gaining
ground in New England for several
years, and now the propriety of
working horses without shoes is
oponjy and strongly advocated by
farmers and journals in' that section
of the country.
In regard to the barefooted theory,
a Connecticut farmer recently wrote
to the New York JIeraldt stating
tlint, after a long expeiienco with
tho new method, he would as soon
think of going to a farrier himself
to bo shod as to send one of his
horses for that purpose. Ho says
that he has worked his horses with
out shoes for about, three years, and
finds that they work better aud nte
