Education is published to-day. This
decision settles a rather vexed ques
tion concerning school sites that lie
on lands devoted to plantation pur
poses. The person who stopped a pass
port of another the other day feels
aggrieved at our referenco to his
airest for a "gross offense." Al
though the case was pending two
days nobody appeared against him
when it was finally called and he
was honorably acquitted. Our re
ference to the case was. intended
solely as a criticism of officials tor

being complied with fully tor that
The llilo Uecord advocates the
nationalization of Ciown lands, a
measure propounded lrj the Hl'i.le
II v several years ago. It would be
better for the Ililo champion of
"Heform," as well as a. good many
like him, to acknowledge their in
debtedness to this journal for ideas
of real reform, than to abuse us
glibly for what they choose to call
our "howling at the Reform Gov
ernment," but what in reality should
be called opposition to spur inns re
form. The Postal Savings Hank state
ment bhuws an interest balance in
iavor of the taxpayers of the coun
try. Although the interest on both
sides comes from the taxpayers, yet
the balance is the excess of interest
paid on money employed for public
services, over that paid the com
paratively few depositors irr the
bank. The real profit to the coun
try consists in the value of the pub
lic works effected by the utilization
of the people's savings as a public
loan, if it had not been for the
stand taken by the Hn.r.rvns' irr the
first half of the year, there is no
doubt that the balance would appear
on the other side. This paper pro
lestcd against the large payments of
interest that had to bo mnde on idle
money. The Government accepted
our views, reduced the rate of in
terest to depositors, and, we believe,
expedited works for which the de
posits were by law available.

AH IMPORTANT DECISION.
Validity or TIttoH lo (Vilnln Hctionl
A synopsis of the decision of the
Supreme Court on the 21th iust. in i
the equity case or VnKlcinar kniitl- .
sen vs. Board of F.dueation is here
iliven. The general facts admitted i
are that the Board irow occupies a
portion of lurid claimed by IIr.
Kuud'juu mid, against his piotes.1,
is erecting a teacher's collage
thereon. Plaintiff has offered an
other site lor school purposes which
has been rejected b the ltoaid.
Plaintiff's title to oocupancv of s,aid
land is as follows:
March 7, 1853, Kameliaineha III.
leased a tract containing 270 acres
to John II. Gruben for the term of
fifty years. September 11, 1853,
Griibcn assigned one-half interest to
Archibald Archer. October 1, 1858,
plaintiff acquired sole title to the
lease which will cpiic in 1903. On
this tract are the premises now in
In a learned opinion signed by the
Chief Justice and Associate Justices
McCully and Bickcrton, the. Court
reviews' school legislation applicable
to the case at issue, October 15,
1810, an act passed by the King
and Chiefs piovide3, among other
things, for the securing of unoccu
pied land to be devoted to the sup
port of the teacher and for the erec
tion of school houses by compulsory
labor of the people. This Act form"
Chapter 7 of the old laws. A bla
tule of May 13, 1812, constituted
the withholding ot laud demanded
by the school agent for school pur
poses a criminal offense. The sta
tutes of 1M0 contain prousinn for
the allotment of land not otherwise
appropriated to the teachers and
schools, etc., and foitillcs the title
to such laud by icqu'uing registra
tion in the Interior Department set
ting them apart for "eleemosynary
uses." This statute was subse
quently repealed by atr enactment
July 9, 1800. Section 7 of the Act
of IN'iO furnishes the basis of the
claim of title ot the Board of Kduca
lion to the land in dispute.
The section releired to reads:
"All sites for school houses arrd
houses for public worship, now oc
cupied and in use and not owned by
private parties; and all lauds con
nected therewith, granted either by
the Government or by individuals,
chiefs or landlords, with a view to
promote the interests of education
or religion, shall be reserved an
Government property, devoted to
the purposes above mentioned ; the
amount of land reserved for such
sites, however, not to exceed two
acres irr each case ; and in case the
adjacent lands are sold or leased,
such lands shall not be included."
This act in addition to a quieting
effect on titles irr general made pro
visions for educational purposes.
All such occupied lands weie re
served for Government purposes.
The site of the school house had
passed 1)3' eminent domain to the
Government anil therefore was re
served from any alienation. As the
law excepted such resen.Uinn, no
express mention of it was neces
Hary. Tlieqiicstion then pi votsnn whether
land in dispute was used as a school
site at the date of passage of the
Act of 1850. If so it could not
pass to Gruben. It is clear that
public and private schools arc refer
red to by the Act. The evidence
shows that a survey of this lot was
made by ,T. V. Mnkalena and ap
proved by the Minister of the In
terior. This survey was made Feb.
2, 1853. The conclusion is irresist
ible that the site was in use for
school purposes at the time of the
passage of lire Act of 1850. That
it had been so granted by Kaineha
meha III., its owner, and therefore,
not subject to further alienation by
any deed or lease emanating from
