THE PALACE WALL.
Early this morning a gang of
prisoners commenced to take down
the Palace wall. Up to 1 o'clock
this afternoon they had it down from
the front gate on King street to the
corner of King and Richards streets.
It is being taken clown to within 3
feet C inches of the ground. Tho
King suggested thot an iron fence
take its place, and this will bo done.
It is understood that tho Govern
ment has already sent for designs
of ornamental iron fencing, and as
soon as a design is selected, the
fence will bo ordered. Thcro is no
doubt that tho taking down of the
wall will bo a great Improvement.

FROM M. THOMPSON'S DIGEST
OF HAWAIIAN SUPREME
A child inherits who is adopted
bj ancient custom. Kinaina v. Ka
hanu, 3 Haw., 3(i8.
Ancient adoption of an heir to be
valid must be complete and definite.
In re estate of Nakuapa, 3 Haw.,
400. Evidence that the kindred
did not know the adoption was
made is not negative and hearsay,
but is part of the case to' be proved,
The adoption of a child without a
declaration of its heirship in the
deed of adoption, does not give it
rights of inheritance. Wei See v.
Young Sheong, 3 Haw., 489.
An Oral adoption of an infant by
a married man who during his life
supplied it with food and clothing,
is not ground upon hich his widow
can recover from the infant the
amount of expenses so incurred.
Kahola v. Dutro, 4 Haw., 149. See
parent and child.
See Husband and Wife.
Adverse possession dates onlj'
from a land award which interrupts
Whether the possession in fact is
adverse or is under the owner's
title, is one for the jury, with this
limitation, that the burden of show
ing the posscsiiou to have been ad
verse is upon the party alleging it,
but what constitutes an adverse pos
session, and what evidence of its
being such is sulflcicnt, are ques
tions of law for the court. See Ka
aihue v. Crabbe, 3 Haw., 7G8.
Where plaintiff's ancestors have
parted with the possession of land by
parol exchange, under which de
fendant has held possession for over
twenty years, plaintiff cannot re
cover it in ejectment. Ikalia v.
Kopaea et al, 4 Haw., 198.
While a prescriptive right by ad
verse possession may be acquired in
one piece of land without regard to
tho holding of other parcels granted
by the same royal patent, it is not
error, in an action of ejectment for
one piece of land, to consider evi
dence relating to another piece held
under the same royal patent, where
the acts of possession relied on as to
the piece not sued for, were involv
ed with the facts relating to the
piece claimed in the declaration.
Kalea v. Lemon, 4 Haw., 318.
The occupation of land of a dece
dent in this Kingdom in 1849, beforo
the enactment of the statutes of
descent, by a widow, is not neces
sarily as dowress, and may be ad
verse to the heirs. The question
should be left to the jury. Paula
v. Malo, 4 Haw. 53U.
When a bill in equity shows, in an
action to set aside a royal patent for
fraud, that defendant claims posses
sion under patentee, to whom patent
was issued on or about June U,
1855, and alleges no possession after
tho last date in any other than de
fendant aud it is unexplained by
allegations, it is conclusive against
tiic plaintiff, and the demurrer must
be allowed. Kalaeokckoi v. Kahele
4 Haw. G08.
See Mortgage Sale.
See New Trial ; Pleading.
AGENT AND l'llIXCII'AI.. '
One of tho several part owners of
ships engaged in the whaling busi
ness, acting as agent to purchase
supplies and outlits, will not be per
mitted to take, beyond a reasonable
compensation for his services, or
that agreed upon, nor to hold any
profits incidentally obtained. Wilcox
& Hanks vs. Marshall, 2 Haw. 290.
An agent or trustee cannot become
the purchaser of property confided
to liis care.

older members. This is something to lament over, not to boast about.
