THE COINAGE CASE
Was commenced yesterday morning
before His Honor the Chief Justice.
The respondent moved to quash the
proceedings as follows : ' 'Therespon-;
dent herein moves the Court to deny
the application of the petitioners and
vacate the writ issued because the
petition for said writ and application
therefor is made by said petitioners,
and petitioners have ucither nor any
of them have any personal or direct
interest in the act to be restrained
and this respondent is a public officer
.of the Government of this Kingdom.
Mr. Neumann referred to the
evident animus to be inferred, from
the mode and time of the procedure
of these gentlemen, at the eleventh
hour. They were not patriotic or
justified in their motives. He re
ferred to the short notice he had
received, but preferred to proceed,
though he might have a weak argu
ment, because of the effects any
delay in the decision would have.
He presumed there were, other tax
payers in the community, more in
terested than these gentlemen. If'
the Minister of the Interior were to
act as they said, he would be liable
to impeachment and prosecution for
felony. It might have been better
that the business community should
have been consulted concerning the
loan. If the complaint were upheld
it meant the absolute annihilation of
' the credit of the country. The
proceedings were not begun at a
time when good faith could be
Mr. Hartwell in reply said that
' he knew Baring's agent in San Fran
cisco had been ready to produce
money for Hawaiian bonds, but the
matter had , been taken out of his
hands. His learned brother took
the grounds that, an illegal act bad
been performed for which there was
no remedy. He (the speaker) held
that Ministers are responsible to the
law. He was not prepared to say
the Minister had committed felonj,
but it was a very serious step on his
part. If justice and reason do not
require proceeding to be taken
against an illegal action, what do
they require? The petitioners have
a right to prevent the mis-appropriation
of public moneys. On the
. whole coinage there would be a loss
of $2G,000, tho half dollars were
worth only 89 cents each. Why
should wo not have here the U. S.
gold or its equivalent which the
bonds require. Evil motives should
not be attributed to the petitioners.
Mr. Neumann said Mr. Theobold,
Baring's agent, must have been fired
by the imagination which ilres gen
tlemen who indulge in the inspiriting
His Honor decided the question
at once. He said that if tax payers
had no right to petition, the only
other remedy was that of impeach
ment. The preponderance of the
cases quoted seemed to be in favor
of granting this right to private citi
zens. To say that the Attorney-General
should bring proceedings
against his own colleagues, and there
had been no Attorney-General since
Mnj, denies tho right of citizens to
bring proceedings and the country
would be powerless. . He hold that
n Minister was responsible to the
community as well as to tho King.
Ho exercised his judicial discretion
as he regarded tho law to be. lie
held that the petitioners were in
Court and had a right to pray. He
overruled the demurrer.
No exceptions were taken to His
The answer of the respondent was
put in, but exceptions were taken to
it, on tho grounds that it was in
sufficient and evasive. The answer
was amended, by order of tho Court,
by the insertion of tho following,
the coins it is intended to take arc
silver half dollars of the same
fineness as those of the United
The plaintiffs then demurred to
the amended return showing that
there was no legal reason why the
mandamus should not be issued.
In giving his decision, His Honor
said the complainants could not net
until the action was being done and
they had sufficient information of its
illegality. He thought the remarks
about their acting at tho eleventh
hour were uncalled for. It was a
pure question of the statute of the
realm. This coin was not necessary
to the vitality of the. country as it
was intended for specific public pur
poses. From the act it was difficult
to say what the legislature intended.
The whole point was whether receiv
ing half dollnrs of U. S. fineness and
paying for them in bonds, is par.
He referred to the Coinnge act and
several points in the Loan act. He
also stated that, according to the
constitution, the judges were bound
to give the cabinet their views on all
important questions, but they had
not been asked in this case. Ho
ordered a mandamus to be issued.
An appeal was noted to the full

Council. The application can now
