THE LAND QUESTION.
The public lands question of this
country is not entitled to much pro
minence, for the reason that our
public lands are neither extensive
nor of great value. Most of the
valuable land of the islands has long
been in the possession of private
parties, and most of the land that is
valuable still remaining in possession
of the Government is held by private
persons under leases of consider
able time to run. According to the
best information procurable, the
Government hinds of any value for
agricultural purposes afpresent avail
able for disposal do not amount to
The best and most enlightened at
tempt in fact, so far as we know,
about the only attempt made by
the Legislature to encourage the oc
cupancy of what lands are availabje,
is embodied in the Homestead Act,
introduced by Judge Dole, then a
member of the Legislature, and
passed by the session of 1884. It
provides for tlw sale of small lots to
bona fide settlers on the deferred
payment plan, conditional on occu
pancy and impiovement.
In viewof the fact that the country
is in want of population of a perma
nent character, and in order to encour
age seltlement,itis a question whether
it would not be wise -policy on the
.part of the Government to donate the
available lands in the more remote
i districts on the solo condition of
occupancy and improvement.
PLAIN DUTY OF A JUDGE.
The decision of Judge Dolo in the
Keystone ' matter, given in full in
s iuid ioouc, ia u ouuny cumruuicuuii
By- of an assertion which wo have fre
quently heard, to the effect that if
the case were decided by cither of
the Judges of total abstinence prin
ciples, tlio saloon was bound to lose
tho case. Judge Dole is known and
.recognised as a gentleman of "blue
ribbon" tendencies and sympathies,
and he probably thinks that there
S".. are already saloons enough, if not
too many, in the town, and would
m, pruier hoi io sec liquor sorvcu out
fat the Keystone corner. "Wo merely
conjecture that tho Judge thinks
k this way, simply from tho fact of
r vhis public advocacy of total absti-
gstf nenco. Moi cover, we are of opin
ion that such views are perfectly
; sound. But tho Judgo docs not sit
ion tho bench to administer his own
'Opinions or to make laws, but to ad-
minister tho laws as he finds them ;
and bis decision in this case was
"'"such as it was. bueauso his intcrnre-
L, tatfon of law and precedents requir-
h cd that it should bo so, That Is tho
f, plain duty of a Judgo, and it is a
X Jxaly which wo are fully confluent
Judge Dole' will never shrink from,
x-nor will any other member of the
On October .'10th Messrs. William
K. Chilton and Henry Bradley filed
a petition for a writ of mandamus
to compel the Minister of Interior to
grant a license for the Keystone
saloon. A writ w at issued requir
ing the Minister to issue a license
or show cause why ho should not do
so. To this tho defendant demurr
ed, and Mr. Justice Dole yesterday
filed the following decision overrul
ing the demurrer:
suriiEMK couiiT or inn Hawaiian
ISLANDS AT CIIAMIJKKS BUFOrtK
MR. JUSTICK DOLE.
William R. Chilton and Henry
Bradley vs. Lorrin A. Thurston,
Minister of Intciior. Petition for
Decision on Demurrer.
This is an application for a writ
of mandamus to compel tho Minis
ter of Interior to issue to one of the
plaintiffs a retail spirit license. An
alternative writ was issued and the
defendant has demurred to the peti
tion, on the grounds that it does
not allege that one thousand dollars
had been paid, and an approved
bond given to tho minister as a con
dition precedent to the issue of a
license under the statute. The pe
tition however alleges that both the
one thousand dollais license fee
and a bond with surety to be ap
piovcd by the minister, wore tend
ered. I consider this to be sufll
cicnt; an officer under the circum
stances, would not bo likely to io
ccivc the fee or to consider the
surety of the bond after he had de
cided to rcfubc tho application.
The second ground of the demurrer
is, that under our statute, the grant
ing of a retail spiiit license is en
tirely within the discretion of the
Minister of Inteiior, and the allega
tion of the petition consequently of
fer no legal leason for the issue of
u mandamus in 'the premises. The
petifion alleges that tho application
for a license was refused "solely on
the ground that the defendant h'as
decided to issue no more such li
censes in Honolulu." I find upon
the examination of those cases which
form precedents to the question
laised by the second ground of the
demurrer, that whoie a discretion is
admitted in an olllcei' authorized to
grant similar licenses, it is nowhere
allowed that he should excrcisu an
aibitrnry discretion or one founded
Rex vs. Young et al. Burrows ojG.
Reg. vs. Sylvester 2 B. & S. 332.
Reg. s. Walsall 3 C. S. R. 100.
Zanone vs. Mound City 103 111.
It is admitted by the pleadings
that the application is refused
"solely on the ground that the de
fendant has decided to issue no
moie such licenses in Honolulu." I
find in the late case of Shaipe vs.
Wakelield, 21 Queen's Bench Div.
L. It. 80, that the diecietion was
admitted, but Judge Wills in his
concuiring opinion excluded from
the cxeicisc of such discretion "a
case in which the ground of refusal
had absolutely nothing to do with
the question in 'hand, as for in
stance, wheic the justices lefused
the license because the applicant
had not taken out a spirit license.
Reg. s. Sylvester 2 B. & S. 322,
or where they had laid down a gen
cial rule that they would grant no
more licenses in the locality.
Reg. vs. Walsall 3 C. L. R. 100.
Iu such cases there is really no
exercise of disci etion at all, and it
is very much as if the license had
been refused because the applicant
wore a blue coat or a white that.
These authorities, which appear to
me to be based upon sound legal
principles, are clearly opposed to
the right of the Minister of Interior,
even admitting his discretion, to
limit the number of retail spirit
licenses in Honolulu. That is a
power which belongs to the Legisla
Having reached these conclusions,
it is unnecessary for me at this
stage of the proceedings, to decide,
whether or not the wording of the
Statute gives the minister a discre
tion in the granting of the license in
question, for in either case I should
regard the allegation of tho petition
ns sufficient to make a jirimu fucie
The domurrcr is therefore over
ruled, and tho defendant is allowed
until Monday tho 11th instant, at
10 o'clock a. in., to obey tho alter
native writ issued herein.

Great are the wonders of the tele

was saved a 2-milo rido through a
driving storm one night by having
the patient, a child, brought to tho

coughed. Ho diagnosed false croup,
prescribed thorefor, and turned in
for an undisturbed sleep during the
remainder of the night. He found
the patient in tho morning doing
