WHAT MR. DOWER SAYS.
Kihtok Uum.utin: I would bo
obliged to your elegant marino re
porter if bo would uivo less publi
city to my piivate business.
In your issue of this evening is
now the second tjmo he has com
mented on my buying a damaged
boat for 30 and having sold' her on
Saturday last for $120, whici lbpks
a pretty good profit on an old boat.
Hut which is not tho truth in fact,
liko Ills qtlier previous statements
concerning inc, Now I cannot seo
whnt Interest that little transaction
ofln bi to anyone in the oomrounity,
oven whon all 'facts nro known,
unless it bo to the occupants of the
"Only Oldest Boat Shop" In Hono
lulu, whom it appears to have had
no little Interest. Hut where ho
could not get any reliable informa
tion regat ding my business. I
doubt verj' much If from the party
who bought the boat, as I do not
think that he either knew or could
speak to him, but if ho did so why
not publish his name in place of
mtneV Or If hu got it from the
office in which the business was
transacted. Where previously ho
saw me, nud in answer to Ills ques
tion in presence of others, I told
him tho boat was sold and no more,
he certainly lacked that gentlemanly
discretion of character so essential
to a representative of tho press, who
has a liberty and commission in
public affairs granted to no other
class of individuals, tho violation of
which is unbecoming any man.
Now it is not that I care so much
who knows my business,-whether it
is published here or in Dccapolls,
when correctly done, but no sneak
ing, listening to conversations round
places of business, then publishing
them to suit their own or their
friends, particular aims or views,
without regard to the damage and
trouble caused to others. Which
is a habit I oneo knew a young man
in this community to have, but has
now I believe turned over a new
leaf, and if your young man will
now do the same, feeling that grow
ing habit upon him, it is just pos
sible he may find friends in many
whom ho now treats otherwise be
cause of their reserve towards him,
and na dout the wiitcr o' this sum'
bit o ndvico ma' no' be the least,
ginn no' tigct to strawnger.

The case comes to an open ques
tion reserved by Sir. Justice l'rcs
ton as follows:
1st Does the mittimus disclose
any olfense for which the prisoner
may be punished?
2nd If yes, is the punishment
inflicted on the prisoner legal under
tho statute of last session of the
Legislature regulating the importa
tion and sulo of opium?
The mittimus in question is from
tho Police Court of Honolulu dated
ICth March, 1887. It is entitled in
the usual way, addressed to the
Marshal and recites that, whereas
Manuel Britto has this day been
convicted in our ToUco Court of
Honolulu, Island of Oahu, for the
offense of having opium unlawfully
in possession contrary to Section 4
of Session Laws of 188(5, approved
October 15, 188G, and upon convic
tion thereof tho said Court did ad
judge and determined that lie should
bo imprisoned at hard labor for tho
term of two years and also should
pay a line of 81,000 etc.
The question is whether Sec. 4 of
the Act entitled un Act to regulato
the importation and sale of opium
in this Kingdom discloses any offense
for which the prisoner may bo
The section reads as follows:
"Every person not having a
license who shall have possession of
any opium contrary to the provis
sions of Section 3 of this Act, or
who shall sell or furnish any opium
or any preparation of opium to any
person or persons, contiary to law
shall upon conviction thereof be
finod in a sum of not less than one
thousand dollars, nor more than fivo
thousand and be imprisoned at hard
labor for nuy term not more than ten
years nor less than two years."
The principlo that penal statutes
are to be construed strictly, and arc
never to be extended by implication,
lias been repeatedly nlllrmed by
this Court. Dwarris expresses it in
tills way: "The general words of
a penal statute shall bo restrained
for llo benefit of him against whom
tho penalty of the law Is inflicted."
Toltcr's Dwarris p. 245.
It is urged upon us that tho Act
under consideration Is a revenue law
that its object Is to subject opium
for sale by a licensed dealer under
certain restrictions and that it is
not a penal law, and therefore the
rule of construction abovo roferrcd
to docs not apply.
Wo think otheiwise. Section 1
authorizes the imposition of a monoy
penalty whoso minimum is $1,000
und whose maximum is $5,000 and
imprisonment ut hard labor for any
term not more than ten years nor
less than two years.
By our law felony is defined to
mean such offensos ns aro punish
ublo with death or imprisonment for
a longer period than two years, or
by the forfeltuio of any civil or
pplitical light and also laiceny.
I'cnul Code, Chapter 1, Section 2.
We can sec no l eason viy a sta
tute which creates n felony cannot
bo considered a penal statute to
which tho above mentioned rules of
construction must apply.
Tho words of Section 4 which aro
put beforo us as describing tho

offense of the prisoner nro every
person not huuimj a license cho
shall have possession of opium con
tranj io the provisions of Section ."
of this Act shall upon
conviction thereof bo lined, etc. It
is essential in the first place that
the person shall not have a
"license." Does the license in
tended here mean the vendor's
license by which he is authorized to
import and sell opium? .Or docs it
refer to one of the two "licenses,'
mentioned in Section 7 of tho Act,
i. c., a liccuso from the Marshal or
the license from a physician? Up
to Section 4 of the Act the only
license spoken of is tlio vendor's
license and we take it that this
must bo the license intended to be
meant. To his conviction, it is
necessary, secondly, that he have
possession of opium, and thirdly,
that such possession shall be con
trary to tho provisions of Section 3.
Now, Section 3 prescribes that
the person holding such license (i.
c., the licensed vendor) shall (1)
keep in a book of record the names
of all persons to whom ho has sold
any opium, witli the (a) date of
sale, the (b) quantity of opium
sold, the (c) name of the physician
issuing thu certificate on which the
sale is made, and (d) the duto of
(2) Such record book shall be
kept (by tho licensee) in the Eng
lish and Hawaiian languages and
shall be open to inspection of the
pollco and the Minister of Interior.
(3) The licensee shall give each
purchaser of opium a receipt stating
the date of such purchase and the
quantity of opium sold.
Each "provision" of this Scctiou
is ono devolving some duty upon
the licensed vendor. Not one of
them refers to tho purchaser, nor
creates any duty for him to dis
charge or any line of action for him
to follow. "A statute law is a rule
of conduct prescribed by tho law
making power in an express and
positive form and which controls
tho particular case and circum
stances to which it relates."
Potter's Dwan is, p. 38.
Now unless a law prescribes
rule of conduct no ono can be pun
ished for a deviation from it.
"Tho certainty of tho law is next
to importance to its justice," says
1j warns on p. 01.
It is abhorrent to Justice to
punish a man unless the offense for
which he is sought to bo punished
is clearly defined by the law and
his duty in respect thereto made
It is our duty to give effect to
this law if it is possible. But we are
not to make a penal statute whero
Wo find that this section, of the
statute of 188(1, docs not define tho
possession of opium us u punishable
offense, and there being no law au
thorizing tho detention of the pri
soner we order ills discharge.
