LAW RECORDS-A GREAT TASK.
In the Clerk's olllce of the Su
preme Court, a Herculean task has
been all but accomplished. The
Chief Clerk, Mr. William Foster,
with the 1st Deputy Clerk, Mr.
Henry W. Smith and 2nd Deputy,
Mr. II. F. Poor, some time ago set
to work to arrange and classify the
records of the office, in order to
facilitate any search that may be
necessary to make into them. Tlicy
have, tip to this time, succeeded in
making complete inventories of all
probate and criminal cases before
the Supreme Court of the Hawaiian
Kingdom since its establishment.
Cases of divorce, law, equity and
admirality will also be booked in
the same manner. The cases are
all numbered, and indexed chrono
locicallv and alphabetically, the in-
dexes also directing to
W . I
and page of tho record,
book is kept for each
divisions named. The
these books are perfect
of the six
exquisite penmanship. The statis
tical results of this overhaul of docu-
jnents may bo of interest,
first probate case appears in
and up to the present time,
have been in that division
cases. The records of criminal law
date from 1817, and the number of
cases is 1,111. Divorce begins in
1850, and, so far, numbers 2,170
cases. As already stated, in law,
equity and admiralty, tho lists arc
in course of completion.
This painstaking and elaborate
addition to the prescribed duties of
the office, by these gentlemen, is a
voluntary contribution on their part,
to the convenience of lawyers and
all persons who may ever have occa
sion to refer to the records. As
was remarked to our reporter on
Saturday, they go at the work when
they "strike a dull day."
This reference to the work of the
Clerk's office of the Supreme Court
would not be complete without an
acknowledgment of the uniform
courtesy and readiness with which
all enquries for information by our
reporters, as to court doings, arc
met and answered.
I A TRIP TO THE VOLCANO.
The Inter-Island Steamship Naviga
tion Company's Route Incidents
of a Pleasant Passage Delightful
Seaside Retreat at Punaluu.
Promptly at 3 o'clock on, tho after
noon of March 19th the snug steam
ship W. G. Hall, of the Inter-Island
Steam Navigation Company, left her
berth at Honolulu on her usual
route. Among a goodly number of
cabin passengers there were three
bound direct for tho Volcano, two
'journalists and a photographer, who
were going, in the interest of the
public, to obtain as correct impres
sions as possible of the remarkable
changes that had lately occurred in
that wondrous outlet of the earth's
internal forcos. A fourth passen
ger was going to make a visit to the
name point in the course of a busi
ness trip to other localities. In half
an hour the vessel was rounding
Diamond Head, ami under a light
southwest breeze the sails were
spread, helping to semi her merrily
along, also steadying tho motion.
All that lias been heard of tho easy
going qualities of tho W. G. Hall is
soon confirmed to the satisfaction of
those who are now making the first
trial of her. Still land-lubbers will
display their peculiarities at sea
upon very slight provocation, and
the gentle ocean roll soon induced
the writer to pose for a picture- of
Misery, over the rail; but unfor
tunately the photographic artist was
liimsclf too indisposed, from a
similar cause, to take advantage of
tho rare opportunity. Indeed, tho
man of business was tho only one
pf the four who responded to tho
dinner bell, returning to the deck in
such brief space, however, as to
creato the suspicion that he hart only
entered the saloon from meie
bravado. Former experience induc
ing a trlnl of repose as one of the
best medicines for sea as well as
other kinds of sickness, dreams,
mingled with what the wild waves
were Haying and with the monoton
ous muttering of the propeller, were
all at once dispelled by a great
calm, interspersed with thu rattling
of tackle and voices, the llrst of the
latter intelligible to the waking
senses being in the form of (he
question, "Do they know j-ou arc
going ashore hero?"
We were in Maalaea Hay, Maui,
and the watch Indicated 11:20
o'clock. Passengers and freight
were landed and the boats taken on
board again with the precision of
clockwork no unnecessary noise or
confusion, no waste of time and yet
no undue haste. The hoisting and
lowering of boats are done by special
engine' and gear, passengers are re
ceived and discharged by a very
safe gangway, and, in fact, all the
difficult conditions of traffic among
these islands, devoid as they are,
excepting Honolulu, of smooth
havens and mooring docks, seem to
be met almost to the degree of per
fection. Here the steamship Kinait,
of thc'Wildcr Steamship Company,
is met on her way to Honolulu. As
she sit on the moonlit waters, with
her shapely black hull and brilliant
lights, Tavcrnicr'8 picture of her in
Hilo Hay comes in mind with greater
appreciation than ever. Reports arc
obtained from her of
Kilauca, which inspire us with
the hope that wo may meet l'cle in
at least some of her former grandeur.
The two vessels each representing
a different splendid exhibition of
Hawaiian marine enterprise go
their respective ways, ours entering
the Hawaii channel, with the Island
of Lanai to the right, the seat of
His Excellency Mr. Gibson's ex
tensive sheep ranch, and part of his
fervid political opponent, Mr. Thurs
ton's, legislative constituency. The
embrace of Morpheus is again
sought, the voice of the waves being
more strongly pronounced in the
Babel of Dreamland as the cradle of
the deep rocks harder. Daylight
brings a smooth sea, with the triad
of Hawaii's monarch mountains
looming majestically in view on the
left Maunakca, Hualalai and
My.unaloa. There also is the famous
Kona coffee district, dotted with the
habitations -of the people who live
by that product and fringed with
dcsultor' groves of eocoanut along
the beach. The clear morning air
with soft breezes, and tho noble
mountain prospect, wreathed .and
llcckcd with snow-white clouds, form
a health-infusing experience worth
the whole cost of the trip to obtain.
Kailua is reached at 7 o'clock.
Here the first house built by a white
settler Samuel Kicc is pointed out
by Mr. Smith, a passenger married
to a grand-daughter of that pioneer.
In a grove or orchard, on a beautiful
elevation, is also seen tho house of
the early missionary worth', llev.
Mr. Thurston. His Majesty the
King is having a house near the
beach the former residence of the
famous Gov. Adams converted
into an elegant cottage. Another
very interesting object is a stone
wall, twelve miles long, built in
former times by the natives to keep
cattle off the cultivated land. Tra
dition has it that tho whole fence
was erected in a clay. There are
also remains of the great fort of
Kamehameha I. The next landing
place is Kcauhou, touched at a
quarter to 0. It lias eocoanut
At 11 Kcalakekua Bay, one of the
very most important points of his
toric interest in the group, is arrived
at. A white obelisk marks the spot
where the famous navigator Cook
met his fate, as the result of his own
folly. In the slang of tho mining
camp, his suitable epitaph would be,
" Ho put on too much side and got
badly left." The site of the hamlet
is a bit of rocky reef running out
from lofty bluffs. A large number
of canoes ranged along the beach,
witli several being paddled about
the magnificent bay by natives,
eocoanut groves on both sides of
the water, and a throng of people to
sec the steamer, aid the imagination
in conjuring up tho historic scenes
of the locality. Napoopoo, on the
other side, is a larger settlement,
with more abundant and healthy
looking eocoanut groves. The dinner
boll rings at Ilookena, sharp noon,
and at a quarter past 1 we are at
Hoopuloa, the principal awa and
fungus producing district of the
islands 90 percent of the former
article raised, it is said, coming
A refreshing prospect of cane
fields comes with the ndvanciug
nfternoon. Naalchu, Ilonuapo, and
Ililea, three plantations forming
part of the Spreckels interest, over
look the sea from the mountain
slopes as Punaluu is approached.
Tho landing just named, our destina
tion, is reached shortly after G
o'clock, or 27 hours from Honolulu.
It is provided with excellent facili
ties for traffio, being tho shipping
point for Pahala plantation, tho
property of the Hawaiian Agricul
tural Company. Mr, J.O. Carter,
secretary of that corporation, who is
the business man rotorreu to above,
is now going on one of liiy regular
visits of inspection to tho plantation.
All are salely deposited on shore,
where Mr. Peter Lee, landlord of
the I'uimlmi Hotel, promptly takes
us in charge.
It would be impossible to imagine
a more agreeable salt water trip than
ours litis been. The sea was almost
as smooth ns tho proverbial mill
pond, the scenery sublime, while
every arrangement on board ship
for the comfort and enjoyment of
passengers was in the highest de
gree satisfactory. Very intelligent
design is manifest in the construc
tion of the upper deck staterooms of
the Hall, which, while abundantly
roomy, have an open air space run
ning along their rear, on which an
apciture with a slide opens, afford
ing the amplest circulation of air.
Captain Hates takes unremitting
interest in the enjoyment of the pas
sengers, treating them to a large
store of the local traditions and in
formation of the shore in passing
along, also placing a superior bin
ocular at their disposal for viewing
the country, and in sundry other
ways making himself one of the
most popular coasting skippers sail
ing out of Honolulu. Mr. A. C.
Simcrson, purser, and Mr. J. Santos,
steward, also perform their respec
tive parts in a manner highly satis
factory to tho patrons of the line.
"Withal the fare is excellent, always
containing something to tempt even
squeamish sea appetites, and every
thing is kept snug, clean and ship
shape. Arrived at the water ter
minus of the route, the traveller has
a delightful surprise in store, in the
surpassingly eomfoi table, in many
respects luxurious, entertainment
awaiting him ut the Punaluu Hotel.
This is no mere pull cry, but a fact
attested by the spontaneous evi
dence, couched in enthusiastic terms,
entered on the register bj many
notable and well-travelled visitors,
including Chief Justico Judd, Major
Dane, of Boston, Mr. Arthur Brown,
of Kngland, and others. Situated a
few rods from the lauding, the hotel
is built on an artificially elevated
plot, in the midst of a desert of vol
canic rocks. A dcliciously verdant
lawn, with a border of gay llowcrs,
lias been constructed with great
labor, tho earth and turf being car
ried a long distance in bags. It
presents a surface like a billiard
table, is kept green with a sprinkler
in constant operation, and available
for croquet, the proprietor having a
set of that game on hand for the
benefit of guests. The site is within
an amphitheatre of volcanic rocks,
opening out on tho ocean, the curv
ature of the high walls being o ac
curate as to form a remarkable in
stance of the vagaricsof nature. It
was probably once a large lagoon,
that some time became shut in by
the sandbar that now joins the two
ends of the lava wall mentioned.
The abundance of fresh water within
the enclosure would prevent the
formation of coral reef if the bar
was not there, and then there would
be, as a natural consequence, the
lagoon. Mr. Lee has the house very
comfortably furnished, the .rooms
are unusually commodious for a
country inn, and a better table is
kept than any but a first-class city
hotel ordinarily provides, Both the
landlord and his amiable wife are
extremely solicitous of having their
guests thoroughly at home and
wanting for no comfort possible to
be afforded. Ono of the accessories
to the hotel is a superb swimming
bath, supplied with running fresh
water, about five feet deep, fitted
with clean-kept dressing rooms and
scats. Most invigorating is it to
have a splurge in this splendid nata
torium at the end of a journey by
sea or land, or at morning or even
ing as tho guest may prefer. It is
tho proprietor's intontion to add
facilities for warm and salt water
bathing, for those of delicate con
stitution who shrink from a cold
plunge. There is a regular system
of waterworks on the premises,
operated by a windmill, that pumps
water into buildings, cisterns, water
ing troughs, etc., from tho copious
fresh springs. The reader may
judge, from tho foregoing simplo
statement of facts regarding this
hostelry, that, apart from its great
attractions for the travel-worn pas
senger by sea or land, no pleasantcr
seaside retreat for weary city folk
oan bp found in all the Hawaiian
Islands. Mr. Lee prepares us for
bed by a programme of music on a
sweet-toned orchestron, and at early
morn bids us arise by the same pro
cesstruly a novel and graceful
method of saying, "Go to bed,"
and "Get up."
