Last evening the long looked for
concert by the Honolulu Arion So
ciety took place in their hall, and
was a decided success. The audi
ence was a large onc,fllling the com
fortable hall in every part. The
verandas were illuminated witli color
ed lanterns and the members of the
society were assiduous in their at
tention to those in attendance.
The programme opened with a
chorus by the Arion which would
have been better rendered had not
some of the members been so ner
vous. Constant appearance before
an audience will probably remedy
this defect. Mr. J. Ilubash gave a,
good rendition of one of Abt's songs,
after which Miss P. J. Nolto and
Mr. Chas. Thrower sang a duet from
the opera of Jcssonda, in capital
style. It was encored.
Mr. Theo. Schmidt is too nervous
to ever become a solo violinist. He
commenced his solo and had not
played many bars before he stopped
to tune up. Commencing again he
played a few more bar3 and then left
the stage. Returning ten seconds
later he started fiddling again and
managed his time to finish his solo,
which by tho way was very ama
teurish. Messrs. Robt. More and Chas.
Thrower rendered the duet "I would
that my love" by Mendelssohn, so
well as to receive an enthusiastic
encore. They responded with the
"Larboard watch" which pleased
the audience very much.
The next number was a waltz
rondo "Love's Joy" charmingly
sung by Miss Frederica J. Nolte.
It is always a pleasure to hear this
young lady sing, and last evening
was no exception. She was the re
cipient of a handsome bouquet, and
was compelled to respond to an

THE BRYANT LIBEL CASE,
Decisional Mr. Justice Preston In
Favor of the Government.
In tho Supreme Court of tho Ha
waiian Islands In Admiralty. In
Chambers, before Preston J. In
tho matter of the American bark
(J. 1). Bryant.
This is a libel died by the Attor-ucy-Gcneial
on behalf of the Ha
waiian Government against the Am
erican baik C. D. Bryant, her tackle
apparel and furniture piaying for a
decree of forfeiture on the ground
"That at the lime of the airiv.il of
said bark within this kingdom and
ut the port of Honolulu theic was
contained on board said bark a largo
amount to wit, sixty tins, being
about thirty pounds of opium, and
that the said opium was then and
there contained and concealed in a
certain secret and disguised place,
constructed in said bark, to wit, in
a secret and hidden pit or box near
the rudder post of said bark."
The master and part owner of the
said bark intervened on his own be
half and on behalf of E. Kcnlftcld
and F. Kentfield, the other owners
of said bark, and by their claim nnd
answer admitted, "that certain
opium was concealed in 11 place in
said bark, but deny that the
place where said opium was so con
cealed was a secret or disguised
place constructed in said baik or in a
hidden pit or box, but allege on the
contrary that tho place where said
opium was concealed is a usual cus
tomary and well known place in al
most every baik of tho class in
which the C. D. Bryant belongs."
The respondents also denied all
knowledge of the said opium being
concealed in the place where it was
The portion of the statute under
which the forfeiture is claimed
(Chapter VII of tho Session Laws
of 188G) is as follows:
"All ships or boats coming into any
poitof thisKingdomhavingopium on
board concealed in false bulk-heads,
false bows, double sides or bottom,
or in any secret or disguised place
whatsoever constructed in such ships
or boats, shall be forfeited."
Fiotn the evidensc it appears, that
on the 23rd instant F. Turrill the
Poit Surveyor with two assistants
searched the lazaret of the said bark
and upon removing some dunnage,
canvass and wire rope, attention was
drawn to the fact that some of the
deck plugs appeared to be newer
than the others, thereupon Mr. Tur
rill with a pocket knife lifted four
of the plugs, and found under each
of them the head of a brass screw,
couulcrbiink about three quarters of
an inch, the screws were withdrawn
nnd ou pressure being applied, a
portion -of what appeared to be the
fiooring, but which was in fact a
piece of planL about 17 inches by
seven with a faUc or blind seam in
the centre matching the seam in the
floor or the deck was lifted underneath
was 11 cavity or space in which the
opium was found.
It was contended on behalf of the re
spondents,and evidence was received
that a space under the deck was al
ways left in double-decked vessels
like the Bryant, that sometimes such
space was covered and sometimes
left open. And it was argued that
such space was necessary and usual,
and was not a secret or disguised
place constructed in the vessel.
I am however of opinion that the
opium was found in a secret and
disguised place within the meaning
of the statute.
The question of intention or know
ledge does not arise, the statute
renders the vessel liable to forfeit
ure if opium is found in such a
place, and it leaves me no alterna
tive, finding as I have done, but to
make a decree as prayed.
I therefore declare that the bark
C. D. Bryant with her tackle, appa
rel and furniture, is forfeited and
order and direct the same to be sold
for the benefit of the Hawaiian Gov
ernment. A decree will be signed on pre
sentation. EmvAitn Pkeston,

THE DEBATING CLUB.
DEBATE on the suxdat law.
Last evening tho Debating Club
grappled with the very heavy and
momentous question "that the first
duty of tho next Legislature should
bo to repeal the Sunday laws." Mr.
Antono Vogcl, rising to champion
the affirmative side of tho question,
said: "In attacking a law of the na
ture of this one, nnd one being so
long established, and modified so at
to bo more liberal, requires moro
than ordinory caution. However,
it appears to me that the Sunday
laws should be entirely repealed, and
that the people would be none the
worse for the loss of them. Under
them a man cannot enjoy his life
according to the way his inclination
prompts. Now what result does tho
present laws produce? They do not
do what they pretend. It is said
that they prohibit men from woiking
on Sunday : they lo not. I know
this from experience. It is said
that man having worked six days is
entitled to the seventh as a day of
rest, and it is also said that those
Sunday laws secure him that rest.
Now, ' how do they do so? Why,
they take from him every means of
enjoyment and rest on that day. He
can have no amusements that par
take of a public nature. He cannot
enjoy a game of ball. He must on
that day absolutely do nothing.
Why not repeal the laws? They do
not produce what they promised.
The initial movement in tho aboli
tion of the laws, was soen last week
in the firm and proper stand made
l3' the Attorney-General. Taking
all in all I say repeal the laws."
Mr. P. L. Harrington in cham
pioning ihu negative side of the
question, remaiked, "that the sub
ject bcfoie the Club was one of very
great importance, and that in order
to meet it fairly, it would be well to
read the Sunday laws under which
we arc at present living. Hero the
speaker read the law of 188G. Now
in considering this question, let us
view it in the same manner as we
would were this Club a Legislative
body. In considering laws that sue
either to be repealed or amended
we must consider the law, the mis
chief and the remedy. Now we
have read the law, and where in the
whole scope can we find a clause
that ia not both liberal and proper.
If you were forced to live under the
Sunday law of some Slates, on the
Coast or in the East, you would not
only consider our own laws liberal,
but you would deem them an abso
lute blessing. Take the old blue
laws of Connecticut for instance.
Man is not cntirelj' robbed of all
enjoyment, only of such as are of a
public nature, and most properly
so. There should be one day re
served for rest and religious duties,
and special laws should be inado to
enforce that day's observance. Now
as to the mischief of the laws. Show
me where they have worked any
mischief? Shew me where they are
likely to, or possibly could work
mischief. It cannot be shown.
Now, having viewed the law so far,
we come to the remedy. Now, what
remedy do you propose giving? Re
peal? Then suppose you do repeal,
what have you to offer to take the
law's place ?Nothing.Ithought so :and
there your argument fails, because
of its utter impracticability. Had
you some salutary, wise, and good
enactment to supply the one you so
ruthlessly tcarjdown,itpossibly might
be thought of, but you have not.
You take all and give nothing. It
will not do. Unless the legislators
can be given a better and more fea
sible means of Sunday's observance,
it would be nonsense to council them
to repeal the present laws."
The question now being fairly be
fore tho meeting, it was open to all.
One member arose, and siding with
the negative, said, "I would like to
support Vogel, but I can't. He
says the law does not prohibit what
it says it does. Let him read sec
tion 2. He will clearly see that
woik is not allowed on Sundays. I
don't want to sec the laws repealed.
It does not curtail tho citizen's en
joyment with his family. He can
have his privato picnic and the like
to his heart's content, or other
ainiiBcmcnts, so long as they do not
conllict with tho requirements of the
law. The law we have I think is
veiy appropriate and beneficial."
Another member stated that he
did not advocate the repeal of tho
law, but he did think some modifi
cation of the law might bo in order.
To repeal the law would be at such
a cost, that he thought it better to
let it be as it is, but to loose tho
bands a little, would be a great be
nefit. Another meinbor in taking up the
subject sided with the affirmative
by saying, "I will not allow Mr-
Vogcl to stand siiigle-handod, I will
come forward and Aland in the
breach. 1 know I am on the unpop
ular side. Now, homelhing has
been said about the Sunday laws of
New England. Progression has
shown itself vividly there for any
reader of history will know that
thero the law of to-day, is not what
it was 100 years ago. So bus Ha
waii made pi ogress in the same
manner, for her Sunday is not what
it was 20 years ago. The laws fiom
time to time have been modified,.
But the laws should bo repealed.
It is like running up a new building
on a good old foundation ; you must
pull down the old one entirely. It
is n question whether this law is not
prohibitory. The law says, we
compel you to respect that day,
therefore it becomes a day of rest;
apd restriction upon tUe motc of
that rest is contrary to the natural
dictates of reason. In the United
States and England, and in fact, in
the greater part of Europe, they al
low a man moro privileges on Sun
day. His day of rost can, if he so
list, bo made a clay of quiet enjoy
ment. If you want modification,
you must first repeal theso laws,
and make new ones, from your
scale of modification."
Another member arose and said,
"As 'gap-filling' is in order, I shall
have to follow. I nearly always get
up to fill a gap. It must truly bo a
torrlble state of affairs if the Legis
lature's first duty should be the re
peal of the Sunday laws. I always
imagined that there; was some other
and moro important duty incumbent
upon them, such as to elect a tempor
ary chairman. I am utterly opposed to
religious legislation ; not that 1 am
opposed to religion ; religion is one
thing, and government i another.
I think it would be a dangerous
thing to ropeat the Sunday laws. I
think it would seriously effect the
majority of tho laboring people, and
I think their rights are paramount.
Until you can get lnws for tho pro
tection of the working people all
roundjlet us keep the laws wc have."
The la9t speech was made by a
member who spoke a3 follows: To
repeal the Sunday law the law
which creates and regulates Sunday
is to abolish Sunday. I cannot
support any such proposition. If
tho proposition had been to create
an additional Sunday, 1 would have
regarded it with more favor. I
might also have been ou the affirma
tive side, if the proposition had sim
ply aimed at a modification of tho
laws on our statute book regulating
the observance of Sunday, but to
repeal those laws, and thereby abol
ish Sunday, or leave it entirely to
the option of each individual person
as to whether he observes the Sun
day or not, is a measure which I can
novcr support; because 1 believe
that the social economy which has
provided one day of rest in the
seven for mankind is wise and good.
That Sunday is one of the best insti
tutions which men have, and that it
might not be taken fiom the help
less by the powerful, from the poor
by the rich, it should he strongly
protected by law. One not better
informed would infer from the talk
of some men against our Sunday
laws, that those laws are of a bur
do'jsomely tcstrictive character, ta
buing everything not of a purely
religious nature forbidding all des
criptions of exercise excepting re
ligious exercises so strict that they
prevent a man smoking or whistling
or a woman cooking a dinner on
Sunday. Whereas, as a matter of
fact, our Sunday law is quite lax
and liberal, more liberal than in
many countries, permitting any
work of necessity, or any quiet
amusement, and in reality allowing
people to do pretty much as they
please, as long as unnecessary man
ual labor is suspended and the peace
and quiet of other people are not
disturbed. I don't know thnt I de
sire a more liberal Sunday law than
this, or that a laxcr law would be
for the good of the community. I
believe in a law which compels the
observance of Sunday as a day of
cessation from the ordinary manual
avocations of life. Such a law is
especially promotive and protective
of tho interests of the poor. Abol
ish compulsory observance of Sun
day as a day of rest, and in the
course of time you will have mills,
factories, etc., in full blast on that
day, and employees would be re
quired to woik seven days in the
week. I cannot vote for anything
of the kind."
After the leaders of the two sides
had concluded their answers, tho
debate was closed.
The subject adopted for next
Thursday's meeting is, "Resolved,
that warfuie as a means of settling
quarrels or misunderstanding be
tween Nations is a relic of barbarism
that should be abolished." Walter
Hill will lead the affirmative, and
Percy L. Banington thu negative.
