INTERNATIONAL MARITIME LAW.
It seemed timely for us the other
day to comment upon the looseness
that governed the mercantile marine
of this kingdom, whereby vessels
were permitted to engage in traf
fic, incllleiently commanded and
equipped, imperilling precious lives
and hazarding valuable property.
Since then a brief account has enine
under our notice, of the proceed
ings of the Congrcs for the reform
and codification of international
law, which assembled at Hamburg
on" Aug. 18th last. To give an idea
of the eminence of the body, and its
comprehensiveness, the list of vice
presidents elected by the Congress
may be cited, as follows : Dr. Meyer
(Bremen), Judge Pcabody (New
York), Sir Travcrs Twiss and Dr.
Wciult (London), and Dr. "Wolff son
(Hamburg). The delegates dis
cussed Paragraph 1 of the proposal
brought forward by Hamburg.
"This paragraph declares it to be
illegal to insert in a bill of lading
any clause or provision by which
the obligation of shipowners to see
that their vessels arc properly fitted
out, manned and provisioned, and
sufficiently seaworthy to accomplish
their intended voyage, or by which
the responsibility of owners for any
faults or negligence on the part of
their employees is in any way les
sened, weakened, or avoided. Any
such conditions or clauses are de
clared to be null and void, and
without legal validity. The para
graph, which was arranged under
various heads W!ls substantially
adopted by a considerable majo
rity." This kingdom cannot do
better than follow international
direction in the matter in question.
With a growing inter-island and
foreign commerce, it is absolutely
essential, in the interests of honesty
and humanity, that "they that go
down to the sea in ships," as well
as the underwriters who take risks
upon vessels to and from our ports,
should be adequately protected by
domestic legislation. Here it may
be necessary to state that, in dis
cussing this question, no allusion is
made to any specific cases, but to a
vicious system that has been per
mitted to attach itself to young Ha
.wniian commerce, the deplorable
results of which arc not for the first
time appearing to-day.
Father Honouii, who was captured
and held some time in the Soudan,
lately got, away and reached Kome.
He va3 indignant over a report that
he had adopted Islamism. While
doubting the death of the Mahdi,
lie said if he was really dead it must
have been from poison and not
small-pox. Father Konomi was sur
prised at the European reputation
of Osman Digna, saying lie was
hardly known in the Soudan and
then only as the chief of a band of
This interesting item to sugar men
is from a recent European journal :
" The Paris papers, commenting on
the seven months' financial returns,
observe that the new taiiff, meant to
favor the protection of sugar in
France, "has had precisely the con
trary effect, and that amid many
items of deficit the most prominent
figure per contra is an increase
above the estimates of thirty-four
millions on the duties on imported
foreign sugar." Which means that
Franco cannot raise sugar as cheap
as alio can buy it, with a heavy tax
piled on top of the foreign article.
Long back in tbe depression this
paper encouraged our planters to
believe that Europenu countries
would tire of fighting against Nature
to compel their people to sweeten
their cups with home-made sugar.
THE PRESS ON THE MARINES.
Kditoii llt'i.t.irrix: In your isiic
of Friday lat. you published Capl.
Alington's refutal of a charge of
drunkenness, made by the Press
againM some of tho crew of the 11.
M. S. Satellite who were on shore
on a specified evening last week.
In return the Press indulged in
a singular attack on Captain Aling
ton's claim to credibility and on the
bad conduct of mnn-of-war's men
1 ventured to protest against this
assault, but as the Press does not
bec lit to publish my letter, may I
request the favor of your inserting
it. 1 am, Sir,
Your obedient servant,

Honolulu. Oct. 10th. 188:..
To the Editor of the Press, Sir:
Captain Alington has left a great
many friends in Honolulu, and, so
far as I know, only one enemy.
Amongst his friends there will be
but one feeling, on perusing your
comment this morning; and since
Capt. Alington confined himself to
denying the truth of a statement
made by you, which you do not,
even behind his back, summon cour
age to repeat, his friends may safely
leave your original statement to its
It is undoubtedly an astute stroke
on your part, to take refuge in a
somewhat ungenerous and possibly
equally untruthful slur on every
man-of-war that has touched here
for the last two years. But as no
bond is stronger than the obligation
of hospitality, and no sentiment more
sacred than that of ljjyalty to ab
sent friends, 1 fear few of your read
ers to-day have escaped the feeling
that both bond and sentiment have
been rudely violated and against
this violation 1 respectfully protest.
There is also the question of your
taste involved, but upon that point
it is perhaps unnecessary to trouble
you. I am, Sir,
Your obedient servant,
Tur.o. II. Davii.
