A HORSE CASE.
About the only important busi
ness before the Civil Court this
morning, was taking the conclusion
of evidence in a suit of breach of
warrantry brought by D. T. Lane
against Miles Bros., horse dealers.
One of a lot of horses imported by
defendants in October last, and sold
for them at Adams' salesroom, was
bought at 8250 by Lane, who found
the animal was lame. About six
months later the horse, which was
called "Comet," took glanders and
had to be shot. At this time Lane
was absent on the Coast, and evi
dence was given that on his return
he said he was sorry the horse was
shot, as he had ascertained what
was known about the animal on the
Coast and valued it at $1500. On
the part of the plaintiff it was testi
fied by several witnesses that the
horses were all warranted sound at
the sale, that owners or auctioneer
had not this one's mentioned lame
ness, and that after the sale the
horse was so lame as to be useless.
Defendants, on the contrary, testi
fied, supported by other witnesses,
that it was stated publicly at the
salo that this horse had gone lame,
but that it was only a temporary
trouble caused by standing so long
on board ship. O. Miles swore that
when the horse was shot for glanders
he had entirely recovered from his
lameness. Judgo Bickerton con
tinued the case for judgment until
the 31st inst.
LAZINESS THE BANE OF HONOLULU.
"The fact of tho matter is," said
a gentleman who takes a lively in
terest in all tho discussions of local
improvement in the Bulletin, "the
pcoplo here are too lazy to do any
thing for the good of the country."
" It's u lazy climate," interjected
"Yes; there are white men walk
ing the streets and loafing about, too
lazy to do harder work than reading
tho newspapers, who might be bene
fiting themselves and the country by
raising vegetables and fruit, or, at
all events, in some useful industry."
Tho reporter, being aware that ho
was in the presence of one of the
best resident authorities upon such
a topic as that struck, only needed
to listen to the ensuing words of
truth and soberness.
"Scarcely a vegetable or fruit
that grows anywhere but can be
made to flourish here, and it is a
shame that our markets and tables
nrc so meagrely supplied with those
descriptions of food, so desirable
and even necessary to a wholesome
dietary in a tropical climate.
"There is a great want of intelli
gence and forethought shown in the
kinds of trees favored in Honolulu.
Oranges, limes, peaches, and other
fruit trees, would thrive with very
little care, yet scarcely anything is
planted but pnlms, monkey pods
and others useful only a9 firewood

Mexico, that exists also in Spain, of
planting fruit trees by the roadside.
Pcoplo journeying through the coun
try, as they go along, think nothing
of getting off their uorscs to plant
the seeds by the way, Thu result
is that the tired and thirsty traveler
often meets with a tree bearing
delicious fruit, far from any dwelling
or house of refreshment. I can
never forget the delight with which,
after riding some hours on a hot day
in Mexico, I came upon a plum tree
laden with ripe fruit. It was a most
refreshing repast for a tired and
"Then, even in the matter of
shade and ornament, more practical
wisdom and taste might be exercised.
For street adornment what line
effects could not bo produced with
the Samang (monkey pod) , Ponciana
with its crimson flowers, Cathata
carpus and other beautiful species ?
Besides their ornamental character
istics, those named make excellent
"The algaroba (that, by the way,
is a misnomer, as the proper name
of the tree is El Carol)) has been
discredited because of the slight
hold its roots lake in the ground,
rendering it liable to overthrow in a
gale. But with proper treatment
that fault may lie overcome. It is
a well-known fact that a tree extends
its roots to the same compass as that
of the branches. Now, by trim
ming the branches of the carob
close in for a few years the roots,
instead of spreading out near the
surface, will strike down and so
take a firm hold of the ground."
After some conversation on other
interesting topics, in the course of
which the author of the above senti
ments expressed his belief that the
Bulletin was doing much good in
advocating industries and improve
ments, the interview closed.

BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH OF EX-MINISTER
HENRY A. PIERCE.
Henry A. Pierce, formerly United
States Minister of Hawaii, died
Wednesday at the Union Club. The
deceased, who was born in Boston
on December 15, 1808, visited San
Francisco, then the village of Yerba
Buena, in September, 1828, as
supercargo of the brig Griffin. He
soon afterward became the Hudson
Bay Company's agent at Honolulu,
which was his' home for twenty
years. He formed a partnership
with Captain Charles Brewer of
Boston, and in the course of time
accumulated half a million dollars.
He then returned to Boston, and
when the first regiment was formed
there, in 1801, he subscribed 85,000
and afterward increased his con
tributions for the cause to $50,000.
President Grant sent him as Minister
to Hawaii, where ho remained on
duty for eight years. When Presi
dent Hayes appointed his successor
he became the chief of the King's
Cabinet, and afterward was largely
instrumental in securing the passage
of the reciprocity treaty. Tho de

A QUESTION FOR CASUISTS.
( An old darky was preaching some
time since and he saw one in his
congregation asleep, so he began :
"You remember when Paul was
preaching in do temple a damsel
was asleep in the fourth story, and
she fell down smashed all tor
smashes, and the fragments they
picked up twelve basketsful, and
whose wife will she be in the resur
rection?" ROMANCE AND REALITY.
Arrangements were being made
for an amateur representation of
"Romeo and Juliet." Mrs. S. wns
cast for Juliet, but some difficulty
was had in finding a suitable Borneo.
"Why don't you play Borneo
yourself, Mr. S.?" suggested one
of the young ladies. "You would
do it splendidly I am sure."
"What!" he exclaimed, "with
Mrs. S. as Juliet? Why we've been
married three years."

MODESTY AND BRAINS.
Modesty is shown by the deep
groove in the upper lip down from
the nose ; but, says authority, mo

or not. Wherefore, friends, let us
all cultivate modesty as significant

COOD FOR THE LADIES.
Tho annual meeting of the "Cen
tral Committee of the National
Society for Women's Suffrage" was
held early this month. Without be

it cannot be denied that Miss Lydia

eloquent and rational speaker than
many a member of either the present
or the late Cabinet. London Life.
The scutimcntalism or patriotism
which interferes with justice or
punishment in this country docs not
aimply weaken respect for law but it
actually endangers the community.
Three or four years ago u farmer of
violent temper near Paterson, New
Jersey, shot and killed a young man
one Sunday morning for what the
murderer was pleased to call tres
passing. Tho young man wos one
of a company of Germans who had
come to the top of the mountain to
greet tho rising sun with songs. The
farmer was acquitted by ajutyof
his sympathizing neighbors at a cost
to him of 820,000. The lesson was
so far lost upon him that two or
three days sinco ho attacked two
clergymen with his pitchfork and
two savage dogs. The "intruders"
barely escaped with their lives.
Their offense was drinking water
from his well after getting permis
sion of his daughter. Thcro arc al

innocent persons in constant jeo
