His Honor Judge McCully having
given his decision in the ease
brought against Mr. Ilolokahiki, in
favor of the defendant, thus revers
ing the decision of Hie lower 'court,
wo publish the opinions delivered by
His Honor and by Judge Rickerton.
Mr. Kinney lias, on behalf of his
client, appealed to a jury and the
case will be reheard at the April
.luixti: iiickkuhin's dix'imox.
in giving his decision in the Lower
Court, Judge Riekeilon said Hint lie
regretted that any member of tiic
bar should be guilty of usury at the
rate of one hundred and fifty per
cent, per annum ; he could not re
gulate the charges of lawyers, hut
lie could limit them to such as had
been agreed upon. The .sum of
S101 Jor costs of court was an il
lcgnl charge. The usury had been
conducted in such a way that the
law was avoided. The defendant
had induced his client to spend 8100
when ho was not in any way called
upon to do so. This was paid to
Kawela. It was tho duty of a
lawyer to protect his client and he
had sworn to do so. He had gone
to Kohala, his expenses being paid,
yet lie had charged twenty-live per
cent, interest on tho amount of his
expenses, lie had received $551
besides the amounts made by charg
ing. 2f per cent, interest. There
was no question as to returning the
$101 charged for costs of court, and
the remaining $00, sued for, had
been t btnined by means which should
not exist between a lawyer and his
client. The Judge concluded his
very severe censure, which, he said,
would have been stronger had the
lawyer been a foreigner, by regret
ting that lie had been compelled to
speak in such a manner.
.ii'nor. jk.ttu.y's nr.cisiox.
The defendant is an attorney at
law and the action is brought to re
cover $200 as "money had and re
ceived for plaintiff's use." The
plaintiff paid defendant $150 as a
retainer or fee in two proposed
ejoctment suits,, and also deposited
with him $101 for costs of court in
The two pieces of land are in Ko
hala, Hawaii. The defendant went
with the plaintiff to Kohala and. in
duced the adverse holders of the lots
to abandon their claims without suit.
He afterwards assisted plaintiff to
sell the lots for 52,-100, of which
$2,000 was paid in cash, $-100 being
left to pay off a mortgage of that
amount on the land.
The plaintiff claims that he was
unjustly and inequitably induced to
pay defendant the $10h deposited
with him for costs in actions which
were not brought, and that $200
being ten per cent, upon $2,000 was
at least $100 too much for the ser
vices in the sale of the land, and so
brings his action for $200, throwing
off $1 to bring it within the Police
In my opinion the charges arc too
high, and if defendant were bringing
the action to recover these amounts
upon a quantum meruit I .should not
allow them. Rut the plaintiff testi
fies that he freely consented to pay
these amounts, and his wife also,
who as owner of the land, and was
a party to the conference, agreed to
tho payment of $200 as ten per cent,
on cash received, that the defendant
wanted to return tho $101 deposited
for costs but that his wife and him
self told him to retain it.
There is no evidence of fraudu
lent deceit or of a failure to do his
client's business. It is only claimed
for the defendant that he asked too
high a price and tli.it the plaintiff
was ignorant and gave it.
To hold that money .so paid may
be recovered would be to permit, all
persons who consider that they have
paid their legal advisers excessive
fees to bring actions to recover the
I do not think that the proofs in
this case support a judgment for

THAT " SUGGESTED REQUEST."
The Gazette, in its last issue, pub
lishes "the tenor of the letter for
warded by the Fort Street School
teachers to the President of the
Board of Education." (A copy of
which was refused to the Editor of
the Uui.t.KTiN.) Our contemporary
also insinuates that it was obtained
from '-within the precincts of the
Premier's premises," in this instance,
probably, from Fort Street School,
and not from the same region as tho
Protest, the Clcghorn Correspond
ence or the Mounted Police Report.
As the G'azctte is not so clever in
concocting, as in collaring, a docu
ment wo repioduce the two letters,
a comparison of which will show a
resemblance mid a difference. In
tho matter of composition the Ga
zette letter is an improvement upon
that signed by the teachers of the
Fort Street Public School, which,
curiously enough, bears no date.

As a case of leprosy has been

These pieces change jn grade when
