INTERESTING LE0AL DECISION.
A case of great interest to the
travelling public has been adjudi
cated upon by the Supreme Court in
California. It is nn old case, having
been commenced in November, 187-1.
Following is a statement of the facts,
from which it would appear that the
Supreme Court holds that a railroad
limited ticket, good for a continuous
trip for a certain number of days
only, entitles the holder to travel if
the trip is commenced even on the
last day of the time limited :
On March 12th the plaintiff, Huftis
W. Lundy, residing at Cawkcr city,
Kan., purchased through the mail
from the agent of tho Union Pacific
Railroad at Omaha, an emigrant
ticket from Omaha to San Francisco,
for 850. He received the ticket on
March 1-lth and joiucd the train at
Kearney, 130 miles this side of
Omaha, on March 31st, the last day
in the time limitation of the ticket.
The Union Pacific honored the ticket
as far as Ogdcn, which ho reached
on the 21th, but on the 25th the
conductor on tho Central Pacific
claimed that the ticket had expired,
and as the plaintiff refused to pay
the full regular fare, he was put off
at Onr.sby station, which was then n
side track in the desert. Ho subse
quently boarded a train at Kelton
and was compelled to pay $53 for his
passage to San Francisco, lie sued
for 10,000 damages. The case
came before T. K. Wilson, who non
suited the plaintiff, holding that the
ticket was good only for it continuous
trip to bo commenced and finished
within nine days. The Supremo
Court has reversed this decision and
ordered a new trial.

To-day tho Government has
shipped forty thousand dollars of
old silver to tho Coast, and will pro
bably get the worth of it in gold

done to relieve those who hold more
silver than they can use.
No apology is necessary for giving
a large portion of space to the pro
ceedings of the Teachers' Conven
tion. Not only for the benefit of
absent teachers, but for that of the
whole public, is it desirable that the
teachers in council should be reported
as fully as possible. In proportion
to numbers, it is doubtful if there is
another body in the kingdom' which
could assemble more ability and
talent. The discnssioifs throughout,
so much as was not purely technical,
would have deeply interested any
audience concerned in the welfare of
the rising generation.
The lki.i.ivriN keeps holiday to

pleasant day and a 1 Iappy New Year.
It will endeavor to live up to its
wish, too, by doing all it can for tho
good of the country and the happi
ness of its patrons during the year
1885. A steady increase in our
circle of rcadcis for the past four
months makes us feel upon happy
terms with the community and san
guine for the future. Wc shall let
the record of the past be our pro
mise that the Ih'i.i.unx will be in

The Hon. the Minister of the In
terior has issued n call for tenders
for the improvements to the Hono
lulu waterworks,- provided for at the
last session of the Lcgislatiuc. It is
gratifying to find that the discretion
of the Ministry has selected this
needful work for the expenditure of
public money, ahead of other works
that can well lie over till tho next
period. If acceptable tenders bo
secured, the improvements should
soon be giving employment to many
people who arc being brought to
straits for work owing to the dull
times. Saturday, the 28th' of Feb
ruary next, is the limit for receiving
tenders. A correspondent of the
Advertiser criticizes the omission of
the requirement of a cement lining
for the receiving reservoir, holding
that an earth lining will involve great
leakage and danger of the works'
THE TEACHERS' ASSOCIATION.
The committee on resolutions
reported back several resolutions,
which were, upon brief discussion,
passed as follows :
Jiesolccd That arrangement bo
made by the Executive Committee
for the publication of occasional
papers on the theory and practice of
teaching, provided that tiieso papers
can be published without expense to
the Teachers' Association.
Whereus this Institute believes
that great educational benefit is
derived .from the gatherings of
teachers in conference ;
Jicsolved That wc request the
Hoard of Education to draft an
adequato law to present to the next
Legislature, providing for the hold
ing of teachers' institutes on the
bcveral Islands, to be so planned as
to reach nil teachers.
llesolved That this Institute ap
point a committee to prepare, or
compile as they may deem best, a
primer on morals for use in our
schools the same to be reported at
the next annual meeting.
Mr. Mackintosh, Mr.
the Rev. Mr. Forbes
were appointed a committee under
Jicsolved That wc cordially ap
prove of the action of the Board of
Education in securing the prepara
tion of an English-Hawaiian Diction
ary, and would respectfully recom
mend that it be put to press as
speedily as possible, preferably in
San Francisco, where thcro arc
facilities for such work not to bo
found in Honolulu.
Jicsolved That in order to give
tho needed basis of authoritative
i'aets for public information and for
progressive woik the Hoard .of
Education bo requested to publish
fuller statistical statements, giving
age and health statistics of the
pupils, average daily attendance,
the number of clnys'given by teachers
to tho work of tho school and cest
per capita in both tho English and
Jicsolved That this Association
desires to put upon record its high
appreciation of tho munificent be
quest made by tho lato Mrs. C. 11.
Bishop for tho education of both
boys and girls in these Islands ; and
the earnest wish of this Association
that tho trustees to be appointed
should so graft theso Kamchamcha
schools on ttho present public school
system that they shall bo n privilege,
not a charily: tho pupils in these
schools to he selected from the
most promising in the other schools
of the Kingdom.
Mr, Scott repeated his recom
mendation, made at the opening of
tho convention, that something
should be done to advance the
higher education of thu more talent
ed pupils. When the young Ha
waiian came out of a country school,
there was no library available where
he could have the benefit of books
for further acquirements. If he
could be plnced at learning a useful
occupation in 'Honolulu, where the
public library and other means of
intellectual advancement were open
to him, it would be agreat advantage.
Upon a discussion regarding tho
Secretary's salary, that lady proffer
ed the amount (Sf0) as a gift to the
Association's funds. For this gener
ous donation, Miss Moore was tend
crcd a vote of thanks, and it was
afterward resolved that the money
be devoted to the purchase of books,
for the use of teachers.
The Ucv. Dr. Hyde reported that,
in obedience to a resolution of last
convention, he had bought a number
of educational works and placed
thein in the public library, where
they were procurable bytcachcrs on
any of the Islands who desired the
loan of them.
Messrs. Mackintosh, Scott and
Forbes were appointed a committee
to purchase books.
Mr. Mackintosh asked the conven
tion, for information, if the leaching
of the Hawaiian language to Ha
waiian scholars, by Hawaiian teach
ers, was to go on forever.
Mr. Olcson said the institute held
at llilo, of which he had previously
spoken, was the small end of a
Wedge to break up the old system.
Dr. Hyde spoke of the difficult
task presented to them, but con
cluded with the remark that Ha
waiian was to be a dead language.
A vote of thanks was' conveyed to
the President, Mr. Townscnd, for
his kindly and gentlemanly conduct
in the chair, and the Convention
adjourned without day.
A now musical instrument has
been invented by Elias of Stuttgart.
It is a harp piano, played like a

It must be said that the inhabi

A wealthy Cincinnati music lover,
Kudolph Nclf, has offered all the
members of the newly established
philharmonic orchestra of that city
life insurance for one year to the
amount of S1000 each.
A monument to Haydn is about
to be erected in Vienna.
Willie Blair, known as Queen Vic
toria's "fiddler," died recently at
the ago of 90 years. He was a
musician of the old school.
Asa 11. Hutchinson, the first of
the famous Hutchinson family of
singers, died recently in Minnesota.
Henry Ilayward, violinist, died at
Wolverhampton, 15ng., Dec. 12th.
He was for a long time known as
"the English Paganini."
In music, the amateur may not
generally be able to give out good
work, he may bo incapable of creat
ing, but, in tho matter of truo ajiprc-i
elation of tho art, wo venture to say
that it is more frequently found in
the amateur than in the professional.
Tho cultured amateur is generally
much freer from prejudice than the
CHRISTMAS AT LIHUE.
Merry Christmas makes more of a
stir in our out districts than in such
a place as Honolulu. At Lihue all
took their own ways for making the
senso'h enjoyable. At the German
church a Christmas tree, with tho
usual presents appropriate to the
occasion, gladdened more hearts
than any other one thipg that oc
curred during the season. Presents
and treats for tho children and
ornaments for tho troo were given by
friends in Honolulu and at Lihue.
Tho presents were put up and tho
tree arranged and decorated by
resident" friends of tho Germans.
All went off reasonably pleasantly.
Of course there were some mistakes
made, but such things are to bo
The local Nimrods, reinforced by
friends from Honolulu, set out at an
early hour on Christmas daj, bent
on that manly sport which most
resembles war. Several pigs paid
the extreme penalty before night.
The trophies of the chase will proba
bly be exhibited at Honolulu, among
the friends of the hunters.
Those of less warlike nature either
enjoyed themselves at home or
calling among friends, or went to
the Christmas service at the Anglican
Church at Kapaa.
