The bride was attired in a lovely
costume of white faille Fraucais
with train and the usual veil. The

to themselves and the writer is un
able to describe the beautiful array.
One might have gone through the
room a dozen times and then not
have scon one half of them. A
more elegant display has seldom
been seen in this city, and only goes
to show the high esteem in which
tho young couple arc held m this
community. One present is a resi

A PAYBALL "u"riTHEi 6TH.
Tho lGth of this month is the
King's birthday, and is a public
holiday. Of late years it has been
observed as the regular annual re
gatta day, but no preparation ap
pears to have been made in that di
rection this year. The only evcuts
so far announced for the lGtli are
the shooting match at the II. R. A.
range and the ball ot Engine Co.
No. 1, which latter event is to take
place on the evening of that day, in
the Armory of the Honolulu Rifles.
Every preparation is being made to
ensure popularity and success. The
pcrsonel of the several committees
entrusted with the various duties
appertaining to the ball, are a
strong guarantee of success as far
ns prepaiations and arrangements
are concerned The rest is entirely
in the hands of the public, and can
be supplemented by their attend

of all, admission is placed at the
unusually moderate figure of one

A VALUABLE PROPERTY.
On the 2Gth of the present month,

THE WAY THEY MANAGE- IT.
In the San Francisco Bulletin of
Oct. 3rd, appears a letter written
and sent from Honolulu, in regard
to tbo'extent of tho conspiracy to
force Chinamen into the United
States. The letter reads as follow :
"I would like to know how Chi
nese from here can enter San Fran
cisco. I mean thoso who havo
never been iu the United States be
fore. Only this week I drew a check
for $100 formy Chinese cook, and ho
informed mo it was to scud his
young brother to San Francisco. I
tried to argue the point with him,
but lie gave mo to understand that
I did not know anything about the
matter, and that a Chinese firm in
Honolulu guaranteed to put any
Chinaman safely in San Francisco
for $100, or nioiioy returned. Ho
said that the merchant iu Hono
lulu got S25, one in San Francisco
$25, and a big lawyer in San Fran
cisco &25, 022 50 for passage, and
the balance, 2 50, goes to pay for
exchange on tho usual basis ; and
thoy are leaving hero in large num
lieis, I know that my eook'a
brother only canio horn China three,
years ago, and first worked for" mo.
He is only about eighteen years old
now, and is a bad egg. Iish you
could throw a little light on this
subject for mo, for it makes mo feel
like denying my country to havo tho
English and Gorman citizens of this
country laughing at the way Ame-lit-an
law is earned out. It teems
to mo that the almighty dollar can
catch those iu high places as well us
those in low,"
Decision by Mr. Justico Dole in the
Keystone Salood Matter.
On October 30lh Messrs. William
R. Chilton and Henry Bradley Hied
a petition for a writ of mandamus
to compel the Minister of Inteiior to
grant a license for- the Keystone
saloon. A writ was issued requir
ing the Minister to issue a license
or show eausc why he should not do
so. To this the defendant demurr
ed, mid Mr. Justico Dole yesterday
filed the following decision overrul
ing the demurrer:
SUVUEMU COUllT OP Tlin HAWAIIAN
ISI.A3CDS AT ClIAMMtttS BI'VOIU'
Mil. JUSTICK DOM!.
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 the Minis
ter of Interior to issue to one of the
plaintiffs a retail spirit license. An
alternative writ was issued and tho
defendant has demurred to the peti
tion, on the grounds that it docs
not allege that one thousand dollars
had been paid, aud an approved
bond given to the minister as a con
dition precedent to tho issue of a
license under the statute. The pe
tition however alleges that both the
one thousand dollars licenso fee
and a bond with surety to be ap
proved by the minister, were tend
ered. I consider this to bo suffi
cient ; an officer under tho circum
stances, would' not bo likely to re
ceive the fee or to consider the
surety of the bond after ho had de
cided to refuse the application.
The second ground ol tho demurrer
is, that under our statute, the grant
ing of a retail spirit license is en
tirely within the discretion of the
Minister of Interior, and tho allega
tion of the petition consequently of
fer no legal reason for the issue of
a mandamus iu the premises. The
potifion alleges that the application
for a license was refused "solely on
the ground that the defendant has
decided to issue no more such li
censes in Honolulu." 1 find upon
the examination of those u.iaes which
form precedents to the question
raised by the second ground of the
demurrer, that where a discretion is
admitted iu an officer authorized to
grant similar licenses, it is nowhere
allowed that he should exercise an
arbitrary discretion or one founded
Rex vs. loung et nl. Burrows Sou.
Reg. vs. Sylvester 2 B. & S. 332.
Reg. vs. Walsall 30. S. R. 100.
Zanone vs. Mound' City 103 III.
It is admitted by the pleadings
that 'the application is refused
"solely an the ground that tiie de
fendant has decided to issue no
more such licenses iu Honolulu." I
find in the late case of Sharpe vs.
Wakefield, 21 Queen's Bench Div.
L. R. 80, that the discretion was
admitted, but Judge Wills in his
concurring opinion excluded from
the exercise of such discretion "a
ciso iu which the ground of refusal
had absolutely nothing to do with
the question in hand, as for in
stance, where the justices refused
the license because the applicant
had not taken out a spirit license.
Reg. vs. Sylvester 2 B. & S. 322,
or where they had laid down n gen
eral rule that they would grant no
more licenses iu the locality.
Reg. vs. Walsall 3 C. L. R. 100.
In such cases there is really no
exercise of discretion at all, aud it
is very much as if the licensu had
been refused because the applicant
wore a blue coat or a white hat.
These authorities which appear to
me to bo based upon tumid legal
principles, aio clearly opposed to
the right of tho 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 mo 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 licenso in
question, for in either caso I should
regard the allegation of tho petition
as sufficient to make a prima facie
Tho domurrer i3 .therefore over
ruled, and the defendant is allowed
until Monday tho 11th instant, at
10 o'clock a. in., to obey tho alter
native writ issued herein.

JOHN F. SMITH'S DOC.
On tho night of the Gth, after tho
Presidential election, John F. Smith
was presented with a fine, large
dog, by a friend. John prized thu
animal very highly, and the strength
of his attachment by feeding the
creature with choice food. John
named his new dog "Cleveland,"
and the dog gave signs of being
pleased. Whereupon the owner de
clared there was no doubt of
"Cleveland" being a true born and
thorough-going Democrat, after his
master's own heart. The distinc
tive maik of the partj-, a red hand
kerchief, was placed around "Cleve
land's" neck. John P. had great
faith in his Democratic dog, ami de
clared his ability to "lick" any two
Republican dogs in the country.
"Cleveland" was introduced to his
new quarters, aud seemed satisfied ;
but on the night of tho 8th he de
serted without warning, and has not
been seen siuce. John l' now de
clares that "Cleveland" was a Re
publican all the time, passing under.
Democratic colors; for, says he,
none but a Republican would have
run off with another man s handker
chief. THE BROOKLYN'S DEPARTURE.

was becomingly dressed and carried
a milk pail under her arm. Loud
applause greeted the prettj' dairy

Following the disappearance of
Patience and the love-sick maidens,
a guai d ot dragoons marched twice
around the stage, and, forming in
line after a very military fashion,
sang the choius "The Soldiers of

respondod to an encore.
Reginald Bunthorne Mr. T. R.
Walker bang the somewhat diffi
cult part allotted to him, "If you're
anxious for to sliiitf," which
brought down the house. The get
up of thin character was unique, and
the manner in which the part was
rendered gave evidence of careful
study, albo of unusual ability in
that particular line. Loud and de
served applause fellowed.
The duet between Patience and
Angela Miss Rhodes "Longycara
ago," was a gom. Nothing short
ot an encoro 'could pacify the de
lighted audienco. The full so
prano of Patience charmingly
blended with the soft con
tialto of Angela, and the clever
by-play of both iu Hub duet, com
bining as it does pathetic music with
tnn irresistably comic side, had to
bo seen to be appreciated.
Archibald Grosvenor Lieut. St.
John in his duet with Patience,
"Prithee Pretty Maiden," was per
fect in ids get-up aud part. Ilis
retiring dolefulness was superb. P;f-
tiencc, who at first lures him on to
propose marriage and afterwards
declines his advances, was as usual,
picpiant and pretty.
The first act concluded with tho
srstette and chorus, "I hear tho
soft notes," which though iu partH
a little weak in bass voices, Was
beautifully Ming. It was a toss-up
between this and the duct, "Long

The entrance of Grosvenor, at tho
commencement of the becond act,
followed by the love-sick maidens,

maidens, all consumed by a hope

poet does not at all reciprocate, was
a lackadaisical rcuiic indeed,
Grosvenor, still seated on tho
btiimp, to the maidens all prostrate
around him, endeavored to exposo
tho bopclcbsucss of their lovo in an
allegory, "The magnet aud the
churn," which was well sung.
Putiencc's song which followed,
"Love is a plaintive song," was
rendered with much tasto and feel

Rhodes, Mis9 Mist, Mr. "Swanzy,
Mr. T. May, and Mr. Uoldsworth,
in good btyle. Tho dnucing and
clover by-play in this quiutetto
