FUTDAY, JULY 28, 1882.
Tho remark is not infrequently
heard, in connection with iv fuse of
ttuihlen ilcuth, " There ought to have
been an inquest held, to ascertain
tho eauo of death." Tito law on
the subject is to he found in the
Civil Codr, Sections 318 to H.'SO.
One clause reads, "As soon uh any
roioner shall have notice of the
death of any person supposod to
have come to such death by poison
hi!?, violence, or in any .suspicious
manner, ho shall forthwith issue his
Hiimnions," &c. Section fl'2'J reads
as follows: "When any coroner
shall not think it neces
sary, on view of such body, that
liny inquest should be taken, he
shall eausp the body to -be decently
Thus it will bo seen that the in
tent of the law is to require the
holding of an inquest only when the
circumstances are such as to lead to
the suspicion of foul plaj , and that
the coioner is, allowed a discretion in
We aie aware that in many coun
tries it is the practice to hold in
quests in very many if not all eases
of sudden deatli ; and we are also that
that not infrequently the cupidity of
olllcials has led to grave abuses as to
inquests. We have heard of one
body of "an unknown" mado to
furnish the opportunity of charging
more than one set of fees.
Wo arc inclined to think that,
under our laws, whenever nn inquest
is really necessary to explain or to
examines into suspicious circum.
Mances of sudden deatli, ono will be
pretty burc to be had.
After several unsuccessful at
tempts to got together those owning
lots in the Oahu Cemetery, the
Treasurer, A. J. Cartwright, Esq.,
succeeded yestcrdivy morning in
meeting at the Chamber of Commerce-Ilooins
with about a dozen per
sons, (including one lady) and the
' business of the Association was ac
complished. This wits first, the
election of set en Trustees, to serve
respectively one, two and three
years. Capl. Mist was appointed
Secretary, pro tern. The following
gentlemen weie then elected Trus
tees: A. J. Caitwiight and .las. I.
Dowsctt, 1st class; E. P. Adams
and S. G. "Wilder, 2nd class ; A. S.
Cleghorn, J. II. Paty and Ucv. S.
C. Damon, 3rd class. The Treas
urer, Mr. Cartwright, then presented
his accounts, up to the 1st of the
present month, which showed cash
in hand amounting to tho very res
pectable sum of SG,472.80, and the
Hum of S250 as due the Association.
Some discussion ensued as to tho
kind and extent of improvements
desirable to be made in and upon
the Cemetery grounds, and it was
the unanimous sense of those present
that the unsightly enclosures of
lots ought to bo removed, and a uni
form system of stone curbs substi
tuted, say fifteen inches high ; that
a handsome stone or concrete fence
should enclose tho grounds; and
that the walks should bo improved
and graded. It was found on refer
ence to the Constitution of the As
sociation that the Trustees nrj there
in authorized to make all needed im
provements. After the meeting had ailjourned,
tho Trustees met and elected the
following olllccrs : President, Jas. I.
Dowsett; Vice-President, Samuel

ests of the Association during tho

Tho owners of lots in the Comctery
and the public generally, are to be
congratulated upon the prospect,
that at length this so long neglected
spot is to bo put in a condition to
become au or.i-mctit and an honor
to our city,, instead of a reproach

Moonlight fishing parties are all
the rage among the natives just
now, and the wharves are nightly
lined with young aud old of both
sexes, with rod and line endeavoring
to catch the small red fish known as

which connected the visits of this fish
with some national misfortune or tVe
death of a chief, is now only a
memory. This fish is very nice

IIaktfokd, April lfith. Both
branches of the Legislature have
passed the bill for restraining the
traffic in intoxicating liquors. The
bill defines as intoxicating liquors all
distilled liquor, wines, ale, all beer
manufactured from hops and malt
or hops and barley, and cider sold
to be drunk on the premises. The
present local option system is to be
retained, each town deciding for it
self whether to license or prohibit
the sale. Licenses are to be issued
by the County Commissioners, 5 per
cent, of the receipts to go into the
County Treasury and the remainder
into the Town Treasury. Every
application for a license must bo in
doised by five tax-payers of the
town where it is to be granted, and
ndvertiscd for two weeks in a local
paper, or, wheio there is no paper,
by posting on a sign post. Any
citizen of a town may object to the
granting of a license," and upon such
objections tho Commissioners are
required to make investigation as to
whether the applicant is a suitable
person or not. Applicants must
furnish bonds in $300, or must pay
for a license not less than 8100 or
more than 8500, as the Commis
sioners may decide. For tho sale of
beer or cider only the license is fixed
at $50. Tho license for druggists is
fixed ot 812. A, record of all
licenses is to bo kept by the Clerk
of tho Superior Court of each
county. No intoxicating liquors
can bo sold in any building belong

law are punishable by both fine and
