The scsaion of the Second District
Court tvl Lalmiim rose on Thursday
last. Judge MeCiilly tuid Attornoy
Gcncrnl Neumann, with other mem
bers of the bar, look passage- by the
Mokolii for fllaalaea 13ay, where thoy
embarked on the Likolike, returning
to town by, the latter this morning.
In the ilium murder case, the
jury retired at-6 o'clock on Tuesday
evening, returning to Court at 10. SO
Willi n verdict of manslaughter in
the second degree. The prisoner
was sentenced, on the following
day, to five years' imprisonment nt
hard labor. Kauhane, the convict,
it will be remembered, killed miothcr
native named "Wniwni and seriously
wounded two others, by stabbing,
in a drunken brawl at a place about
nine miles from Ilunti plantation,
Maui, on the tilth of June last.
Momona, the leper who fatally

mulau, at Kalaupapa Leper Settle
ment, Molokai, on the 29th of Octo
ber last, pleaded guilty of man
slaughter in the first degree, and
was sentenced to ten years' impri
sonment. Lohiloa, who was acces
sory to the crime, also pleaded
guilty, and was given two and a
half years' imprisonment. Their
victims died shortly after the mur
derous assault upon them, both
being buried together.
The Attorney-General prosecuted
in both the above cases. Mr. "V. A.
Kinney defended Kauhane, ahd Mr.
John Richardson appeared for the
leper manslayers. Dec. 12th.
LAV LIBRARY IMPROVEMENTS.
The Justiciary Department in the
Government building has just ef
fected a very important improve
ment. Tlie law department of the
general library "has, been removed to
the room of the clerk of the court,
Mr. "William Foster, and placed
under his supervision. Four line
new double cases have been placed
in the room, and are arranged so
that the titles of all volumes on the
shelves can bo conveniently read.
A placard on the end of each case
specifies the class of works contained
in it. Law Reports and standard
authors of many of the Slates of
the Union occupy three of these
cases, and the fourth contains Eng
lish works of similar import. An
additional case in each of two
corners of the room is appropriated
to miscellaneous works having a
collateral bearing upon law, and
treating of the lives and works of
some of the legal luminaries of his
tory. New tables arc in course of
construction for the accommodation
of gentlemen of the wig and others
who nay wish to consult authorities
or make extracts. Tlierc is a
spacious lobby adjoining, in which
seating and table accommodation
for a limited number of persons
will be provided. Cigars and con
versation will be permitted only in
the lobby, these indulgences being
tabu in the Library Room.
THE KAUMAKAPILI SOCIABLE.
Last evening's sociable by the
Kaumakapili Church Y. M. C. A.

dress, in which he asserted the
value of such gatherings for creat
ing more sociability among young
Ilawaiunis. lie introduced the Gen
eral Secretary of tic Association,
who briefly addressed the gather
ing, and was followed by a . Sa
moan, who spoke and sung in his
native tongue, affording general
amusement. Hon. J. M. Kapena
gave the main speech, recounting
his recent American tour. Rev. J.
Vaianiau, pastor of the church, and
Rev. S. Wniwaiolc each addressed
the company in pleasant terms.
Both the Kjng's Own and Queen's
Own were guests of the occasion,
mustering in goodly numbers. The
choir and string band from the Ka
waiahao congregation were present,
helping very creditably in the en
livenment of the occasion. Refresh
ments completed the very enjoyable
evening's programme. Dec. 12th.

MONDAY, DEC. 14, 1885.
The colonization scheme for the
settlement of lauds on this island is
evidently beginning to take hold.
The concern of tho capitalist will be
to secure a reliable class of agricul
turists to take possession, while in
tending tenants will very properly
wish to be assured of the probable
success of agricultural operations.
To cither party no certainty can be
given beyond what the previous his
tory of land cultivation on these
Islands furnishes. And tho facts up
to the present time arc to the effect
that nowhere in the world have
better returns been made for the
same expenditure of cash, muscle
and intelligence than here. The
land colonization scheme, once start
ed, must be wildly mismanaged if it
does not prove an excellent invest
ment for capital, as well as afford a
fine opportunity for comfortable
livings for a large number of people.
Several applications for lands have
already reached the provisional
board of managers, and the indica
tions arc that the demand will be fat
in excess of the supply. A person
of mcaus and an experienced culti
vator of lands called at the Bulle
tin office on Saturday and expressed
his determination, along with a
partner, lo take up 300 to f00
acres, on the terms proposed by the
promoters of the scheme, and stated
further that his intended partner is
an experienced cane grower, sugar
boiler and practical engineer. These
and other applicants only await the
complete organization of the com
pany to go right in and take the
benefit of the enterprise.
Since the above was wrtttcn, an
other application for 200 acres has
been received. The applicant pro
poses to raise sugar cane and
LATE FOREICN NEWS.
THOMAS A. HENimiCKS.
The nrrival of the brigantine
John D. Sprcckels from San Fran
cisco, on Saturday, brought several
items of startling news. Dcatlt has
been at work among the heads of
tlie United States and of Spain. The
United Spates has been called to
mourn at the tomb of ono of her
most highly honored and honorable
sons. Thomas A. Hendricks, whose
death wc had time only to mention
in Saturday's ibsue, passed away
suddenly, though not altogether un
expectedly to himself, or his family,
on tho 25th of last month. He was
(iG years of age, and belonged, by
birth, to tho State of Ohio, but by
residence to Indiana. By an upright,
honorable and virtuous course of life,
ho won tlie esteem of his friends
and tlie confidence of his fellow
citizens. His charities and bene
volences were varied and liberal.
Immediately on the news of his
death being received at "Washington,
the President issued a proclamation
ordering that tho national flag be
displayed at half-mast pn all tho
public buildings of the. Union, and
that tho executive mansion and de
partments of stato should bo closed
on tho day of tho funeral, and bo
draped in mourning for thirty days.
Titus ono of naturo'iJ noblemen lays
aside tho cares of state, and passes
out of view, but his name and his
loiy will be long embalmed in frag
rant memories in the homes of the
people, and mnny.nn nspiring.youth
will be icfcrred to Thomas A. Hen
dricks as a bright and shining
example of what a man, n citizen
and a statesman was, and ought to
The death of the young King of
Spain promises to be fruitful of
great political as well as civil dis
turbances. The effect of tho de
cease of the Spanish sovereign
affords occasion for reflection on the
great contrast betwedn a system of
government not possessing tlie con
fidence of tho nation, or of foreign
states, and a system in which the
relative positions of ruler and citi
zen are satisfactorily adjusted and
established. Tho civil atmosphere
of Spain was, on tlie announcement
of the King's death, at once in a
state of disturbance. A revolution
ary rising is feared. Tho Carlists
arc in great strength and well sup
plied with money. Castile was in a
state of siege, and 100,000 reserves
were called out. Cuba, being in a
chronic state of disaffection, threat
ens to bo tlie scene of a political
upheaval. The deceased monarch
had only reached tho ago of 28
years. Alfonso was a sovereign of
more liberal views than most, if not
nil, of his predecessors. His gov
ernment of a country notoriously
misgoverned for centuries, was char
acterized by more wisdom and toler
ance than his nation had been trained
to appreciate. Adversity had evi
dently found him a careful and
successful student. Driven fiom
the throne, with his mother, Queen
Isabella, he went to Sandhurst
Military College, England, where lie
received a military education. When
little more than 17 years of age, he
obtained the succession to his an
cestral throne, when his military
scholarship did him service at the
outset in the suppression of the
Carlist revolution, which he disposed
of within a single month. He gave
his consent to a limitation of tlie
powers of the Spanish monarchy in
187G, and thus made friends with
the most enlightened section of his
subjects as well as with foreign
states. His untimely death will be
much regretted among the friends
of liberty and progress everywhere.
Tlie Queen, Christina, daughter of
Ferdinand, Archduke of Austria,
has been proclaimed Regent.
Ur.ATH OP MAItSHAL SEUKAXO.
Two days after the death of King
Alfonso, another prominent figuie
in Spanish affairs passed away.
This was Serrano of Dominguex,
Duke dc la Farrc.
THE ENGLISH ELECTIONS.
The defeat of the Liberal Party,
at the recent elections, is announced
to have been so thorough as to
amount almost to a complete over
throw. Several of the members of
the late Gladstone Cabinet have
been defeated, Mr. Childcrs, Mr.
Lefevre, and Under - Secretaries
Ilaytcr and Holmes. The Marquis
of Lome, the Queen's son-in-lawt
has also gono by tho board. Sir
Charles Dilko won a close contest.
Parncll and Hcaley have been re
turned for Cork. T. P. O'Connor,
an Irish Nationalist, ousted the
Tory candidate of a Liverpool
division with a majority of 1,231.
Gladstone and Bright,howcver, were
