thTgoinage case "
The appeal in the mandamus case
of Smith et als vs. John M. Kapcna,
Minister of Finance, was called for
hearing yesterday. The attorney
for the petitioners opened, and, in
argument, confined himself to show
that the proceeding was proper. His
argument was replied to by Mr.
Preston, associate counsel for the
After recess, the Attorney Gene-
ral argued upon the points involved,
coufining himself to advancing his
theory of the proper construction of
the Loan Act, and. citing various
authorities, contended in substance
that the Legislature which enacted
the law, intended, by the language
in whicli the law was framed, to al
low the government to place its
bonds with the citizens of the coun
try, as far as practicable, by allow
ing them to purchase the bonds for
currency, and to induce purchasers
to take them by making them pay
able in U. S. gold coin or its equiva
lent. The whole question appears
to be in the construction of the law
by the court, and, no matter how
the decision turns, it will be advan
tageous to have the opinion of the
Supreme Court upon the construc
tion of the act.
THE MEAT WE EAT !
On Tuesday, in company with
Mr. Frank Spencer, Mr. C. W. Ash
ford and u representative of the
Saturday Press we visited the
slaughter yards of Honolulu.
The first was known as the Ger
man yard, and here we saw thirty
six head of cattle in a small enclos
ure with no covering to protect them
from the sun, wind or rain. They
were standing in deep mud, they
had two iron troughs, filled with
greert water, to drink from, and
there was no appearance of food
having been given to them. One
animal was lame, and all were sunken
under tho hips, the space being large
enough to receive any one of our,
heads. There was nobody near the
place so that we could ascertain no
particulars as to the length of time
they had remained penned up, or
how often they were fed or if they
ever received fresh water to drink.
Close by were the yards of Mr.
McCandlcss. In one small covered
pen were eleven cattle with no signs
of food and a tub partly filled with
water. The slaughter house was
dirty and contained two buckets, a
shovel, an axe, a basket and some
dirt. In au empty sheep pen there
wus a little hny, and, in another
pen there were over thirty sheep,
"gaunt as a greyhound," as de
scribed by one of the party, with a
little grass for them to cat. Out
side these buildings were bones,
horns, pigs, refuse, manure, mud
and dirt, all of which combined
made a perfume, -which excels the
far-famed city of Cologne. These
buildings were the best that we saw.
We then drove further from town,
and, being joined by Dr. Hagan,
inspected the establishment of Mr.
Waller. Here we saw thirty bul
locks in an uncovered yard, about
35 by CO feet, wading through the
mud; the next enclosure of liquid
mud was empty, and then, in a
covered cnelosnre, wore fifteen cows
and calves. One animal was dis
eased in both eyes. There wore two
troughs of liquid mud from which
they might drink, and, outside tho
enclosures, was some dry I'lilo grass.
We were fortunate hero in seeing
tho meat being prepared for the
market. The floor of tho butcher's
room was very dirty ; on it. were the
carcasses of two sheep, lying on
their skins; some carcasses were
hanging a""inst a dirty wall, and
the bullocks' hearts' and sheens'
livers', when cut out, wero dipped
into a tub of water and thrown on
to the iloor. Mr. Waller told ub
that he roceived forty-five head of
cattle every ten days. At this rato,
four and n half are killed every day,
leaving an average of twenty, re
maining nlivo, for the whole period
of ten days. For these twenty uiii
nials he expends six dollaus a week
in providing Hllo grass, supplied by
Can we be surprised that out
meat is touch ? Can wo be stir
prised that it is almost impossible to
obtain a decent chop or steak in
Honolulu, when the animals killed
arc penned up for days without suf
ficient nourishment before they arc
killed ? Wo can bo surprised that
this state of affairs has bemi allowed
to exist so long, and that the laws of
the country, if there arc any relating
to the killing of animals and prepara
tion of mcaU have not been enforced.
The veal we cat is from animals
nearly a year, instead of six weeks,
old. No, we arc not surprised.
We have Protests and Annexation
schemes to think of, the annexation
of " wild beasts of the jungle," so
who can expect any attcntioiu!to he
paid to the "wild beasts" of the
slaughter yards, that are food for
