FROM M. THOMPSON'S DIGEST
OF HAWAIIAN SUPREME
ADMIRALTY JURISDICTION AND TKAC-
To limit the jurisdiction of the
C'ouit sitting us a Conit of admiral
ty under the pro"isions of the 21st
Article of ttie Treaty with France,
in suits brought by foreign seamen,
it must appear that the teirn of
service, under their shipping con
tract, has not yet expired, within
the meaning of the decision in
Young vs. Philips, 2 Haw. U49.
The contract being determined by
its own terms, the seamen cannot
thenceforth be arrested under treaty
stipulations upon the consul's requi
sition. The cause of difference giving
liBC to the suit must relate to the
internal order of the vessel, aud the
contending parties bo exclusively of
the ship's nationality to affect the
jurisdiction of the coin t, under the
provisions of the French Treaty.
In a suit between citizens brought
to iccover wages claimed from an
American vessel, the court adheied
to Uiu principle which had been re
peatedly declared by the courts of
this Kingdom, bitting as courts of
admiralty, that they would entertain
juribdiclion, wheie it was for the
common benefit aud convenience of
the parlies iuteicsted, and when a
remission to the distant domestic
forum would be attended with great
delay and probable loss of material
International comity, in certain
cases, requires the courts ol this
Kingdom to exetcise jurisdiction as
a friendly act to the citizens of a
It is incumbent upon the masters
or agents of whuleships, to make up,
at the expense of the owners, the
accounts between the ship and eacii
ollicer or seaman of the crew, and
any usage to the contrary deemed
unreasonable aud would not be sus
tained by the couit. Warren vs.
Bark "Benjamin Rush," 2 Haw.
The court, sitting iu admiralty,
v overruled the protest of the Ameri
can Consul and Commissioner of the
United Slates against the jurisdic
tion of the court iu this cast ; and
held, that the exercise of jurisdic
tion is discretionary in entei taming
suits between foreigners, but iu a
case of special necessity, to prevent
a failure of justice, the duty is im
posed to exercise the jurisdiction.
Distinction drawn (as to the
necessity of exercising jurisdiction),
between engagements entered into
and to be terminated within this
Kingdom, aud those made at a
foreign fort for a cruise to end at
the same port.
The provisions of the 21st article
of the French treaty do not lessen
the jutisdiction of the courts in ad
judicating upon contracts for ma
riners' wages, according to the gen
eral principles of the Maritime law
r affecting such contracts.
Although the juiisdictiou of
crimes and misdemeanors has been
yielded, to a certain extent, by the
treaty with France ; still, the case
of mariners wages, arising from a
contract terminating here, does not
come within what is meant by mat
ters of difference touching the inter
nal older of the vessel as expressed
inftho treaty, and would not, there
fore, iu such case, limit the jmibdiu
tion of the court.
A demand, on the pait of tho
libulliuits, for a settlement and pay
ment regarded as indispensable be
fore suit brought. Wan en vs. Hark

Interview with Hon. . 31 Doiaou
and 3Ir. T. U. Uilbbtc.
A representative of the Bullett
mnclinir Hnn. S. M. Damon, nut to
"As you are interested in the
tramway stock, have you any objec
tion to stating what induced you to
invest in it?"
Mr. Damon replied: "Shortly
after the first cars started for Wai
kiki and the Park, I called on Mr.
Gribble and asked him if it was not
possible that some shares could he
told in this countiy. 1 told him
that I knew that there were parties
here who would like to take an in
terest iu it, and, seeing that the
traffic was so largely in excess of
popular expectations, I felt sure
that it would he a profitable invest
ment from the start. I saw that
the majority of thoso who used the
cars were people who did not have
the means of indulging in carriages,
and our population being so largely
made up of that class, and their
taking to the cars so readily, I felt
that tho success of tho company
"Mr. Gribble replied that he
would write to the company in Lon
don and see what their views weic
in regard to placing some of the
stock on thi3 market. This led to a
somewhat extensive correspondence
witli tho company in London, and
they decided to place a liberal pro
poition of shares on this market,
that is, if there proved to be a de
mand for them. As to tho begin
ning of opeiations with the results
of the tramway's running thus far,
you had better bee Mr. Gribble and
get the exiict figures from him."
The reporter accordingly put to
Mr. T. G. Gribble, superintending
engineer of the Hawaiian Tram
ways Company, in his ollice the
"Can you give mo the figures of
your traffic returns since starting
the cars, more particularly those of
the first two weeks in July?"
Mr. Gribble, referring to the
books, in response quoted the in
formation that appears below :
i-,or the first two weeks in July
the Nuuanu street line, with only
one car running, yielded 8271.90,
or $19.40 per day. The King street
line, from Katnehameha Schools to
Waikiki, returned 2,187.70 from
the five cars in operation, being
$437.50 per car, which is better
than the S800 realized in the four
weeks of June, and equals $31.20
per day for each car. The esti
mates in the prospectus recently is
sued here figured an average in
come of $18 per day for each of the
22 cars to be run.
Mr. Gribble said : "We have 24
cars altogether, and there will be an
equivalent of 22 cars per day run
ning. There are seven cars run
ning now five on King street, and
one each on Nuuanu and Beretania
streets. It is intended to put seven
cars on the King street route, four
on the Esplanade and Beretania
street loute, and three or four on
Nuuanu street. The balance will
be made up of extras for schools
and special occasions, and additional
cars on Saturdays and Sundays."
Mr. Gribble wished it stated, in
reference to the business hitherto
done, that the management thus far
had been of a somewhat tentative
ehaiacter. It was the purpose of
the company to have the lines con
ducted according to the best ex
perience in the business. The re
quirements and desires of the com
munity would be consulted, while
economy of ndministiation consist
ent with efficiency would be observ
ed. "When 22 cars are running, will
there be proportionate returns?"
Mr. Gribble in i eply could only
refer to the results already reached,
but stated that lie had made esti
mates iu the prospectus on a basis
considerably under the icalizations
o far on'King street.
When hourly cars were changed
to half-hourly, there was an im
mediate increase iu the number cai
ried per car. There had been a
steady increase, with slight varia
tions, weekly and monthly, and, to
give an exact exhibit of the growth
of the traillc, Mr. Gribble quoted
from the books the following state

January 1st to June 20lh:

Mr. Gribble (lrtr th fenorHr'e
attention to the interesting fact that
the tramwayo carried the qulva
lcnt of the population of Honolulu
during the last week in June.
WHY HE DID
NOT GO TO THE HOSPI
TAL. HB COULD LEAr THROUGH TUB AIK.
i Y object in writing is two-fold :
1.YJL. to express my gratitude for a
great benefit, and to tell n short story
which cannot fail to interest the
feelings of many others. It is all
about myself, but I have rematked
that when a man tells the honest
truth about himself he is all the
more likely to be of use to his fellow-creatures.
To begin, then, you
must know I had long been more or
less subject to attacks of bronchitis,
a complaint that you aro aware is
very common and troublesome in
Great Britain in certain seasons of
the year. Some months ago I had
a very severe turn of it, worse, I
think, than I ever had before. It
was probably brought on by my
catching cold, as we arc all apt to
do when we least expect it. Weeks
passed by, and my trouble proved
to he very obstinate. It would not
yield to medicine, and as 1 also be
gan to have violent racking pains in
my limbs and back, I became great
ly alarmed. I could neither cat nor
sleep. If I had been a feeble, sick
ly man, I should have thought less
strangely of it ; but as, on the con
trary, 1 was hearty and robuHt, I
feared borne new and terrible thing
had got hold of me, which might
make my strength of no avail against
it. I say, that was the way I
Presently I could not even lie
down for the pain all over my body.
I asked my doctor what he thought
of my condition, and lie frankly,
"I am sorry to have to tell 3'ou that
you are getting worse!" This bo
frightened my friends, as well as
myself, that they 6aid "Thomas,
you must yo to -the Hospital; it
may be your only chance for life!"
But I didn't want lo go to the
hospital. Who does, when he
thinks he can possibly get along
without doing it? I am a labouring
man, with n large family depending
on me for support, and I might al
most as well be in my grave as to
be laid on my back in a hospital
unable to lift a hand for months,
or God only knows how long. Right
at this point I had a thought Hash
across my mind like a streak of sun
shine in a cloudy day. I had heard
and read a good deal about Mother
Seigel's Curative Syrup, and I re
solved, before consenting to be
taken to the hospital, I would try
that wellknown lemedy. On this I
gave up the doctor's medicine and
began taking the Syrup. Mark the
wonderful result! I had taken but
three doses within twenty-four hours
when I was seized with a fit of
coughing, and threw up the phlegm
and mucus off my chest by the
mouthful. The Syrup has loosened
and broken it up. Continuing with
the Syrup, the racking pain, which
I believe came from the bitter and
poison huinois in my blood and
joints, soon left me entirely, and I
felt like going to sleep, and I did
sleep sound and quiet. Then I fell
hungry, with a natural appetite, and
as I ate I soon got strong and well.
i" fell I could hap through the
air uili delight!
In a week 1 was able to go to my
work again. It doesn't seem possi
ble, yet it is true, mid the neigh
bours know it. Tlieie are plenty
of witnesses to prove it. And,
therefore, when I say I preach the
good news of the great power of
Seigel's Syrup to cure pain and di
sease far and wide, nobody will
wonder at me.
