MONDAY, JAN. 11, 1892.
Saturday morning the Advertiser
had an ai tide that could not be inter
preted otherwise than as an appeal
to the Reform party on Oahu to or
ganize and place a ticket in the Held
for the election to take place in a lit
tle over three weeks. This was rather
surprising in view of the fact that
Mr. L. A." Thurston, generally re
garded as the leader of the Reform
part', had expressed the opinion,
just as lie was leaving for Maui the
previous day, that it would be un
wise for the Reform party to take
action at this late hour. The very
fact that the Advertiser, which is ad
vertised by its owners as the organ
of the Reform party, had never made
any sign while every other party was
organizing for the contest, indicated
that the Reformers on Oahu were not
going to take a hand as such in the
election. Another symptom of that
party's dormancy was the fact that
many of its leading workers in thu
previous election were all along press
ing into the Mechanics' Union as an
avenue for the exertion of their pa
triotic energies. This morning's Ad
vertiser, however, shows that in the
previous issue it was only peaking
for its dissatisfied self, and it virtu
ally ndlnils that its tacit appeal to its
party to organize was unwise. Mr.
Thuiston at the same time comes out
in a letter, urging the unwisdom of
dividing thn forces in favor of good
gi vemment and n conservative policy
at tliis jUHCturo, In this aonnupllon
the following remarks given to this
paper as a communication fairly statu
tho situatiou from the Reform party's
"Dissatisfaction with tho fcoble
ticket nominated by tm Mechanics'
Union and Ulli Kalaiaiua lias prompt
ed the suggestion that another ticket
Bliould be put forwnrd. It iB said
that some favor a Reform ticket pure
and simple j that others advocate an
Independent ticket. While there
are doubtless names which could bo
presented which would bo more ac
ceptable to many thun some of those
now nominated, wo believe it would
ho most unwise for the Reform parly
to make up a ticket at this late day,
Had the question of the wisdom of
that party's putting up a ticket been
presented at an earlier stago of tho
campaign, before nominations had
all been made by the other organiza-
tions, there would be ample room for
discussion. Hut to make up and
press a Reform or Independent ticket
now would in nil probability result
in the election of the Liberal ticket
as a whole. So far as we can learn
the reason why the Reform party in
Honolulu lias not called its organiza
tion together and entered actively
into the campaign lias been the fact
of its lieinc so much in the minority.
As we undei stand the situation, the
great majority of those who now
constitute tlic 'Reform parly only de
sire good government and a reason
ably vigoious aduiinlsttation of pub
he affairs. They seek no olllcos
and have no personal ends to seivc
distinct from the public interests.
Hut from various causes this party
has Inclined so much hostility in
Honolulu that there has been a tacit
understanding that they would not
present any ticket here. Whatever
the reason may have been, or how
ever wise or unwise that course may
appear, to attempt at this late day
to put tip another ticket would suie
ly result disastrously to the interests
of good government."

The Collector General vs. 500 Uot
tles of Opium Pills, Chu Gem
of Quoiig Sam Kee Co., claim
ant. Healing at Chambers,
January olh and Gth, 1802.
Opinion or Cnir.F Jusnci: Judd.
The invoice of goods importedby
Quong Sam Kee Company per bark
Kitty from Hongkong, China, was
entered at the Custom House in Ho
nolulu on December 2d, 1801, by
Chu Gem, manager of the importing
linn. Chu Gem staled to the deputy
collector that the pills in case No. 18
on the invoice calling for "China
pills" lie believed to be opium pills
and struck them off from the in
voice, tho case to be surrendered to
tlie government. The case was taken
by mistake to the claimant's store
and by him sent to the Custom
Case marked No. 101 was invoiced
as containing "f00 pes. China pills
valued at $15, 10 pair flower shoes
8.20, 1 pc. ash llowers 10 cents."
This case was seized on board the
vessel by the customs ollicer and
on examination found to contain
medicinal pills containing opium,
and the whole invoice of goods valued
at 1828.85 was seized, leis what
packages had been delivered to the
impoiter before the seizure.
The object of this libel is to for
feit and condemn to the use of the
government the case of pills and the
entire invoice" of which the pills
formed a part.
These pills purport by their label
to be a remedy for the opium habit.
The chemist (Mr. G. W. Smith) who
analyzed them says they contain
some vegetable extracts, etc., and a
small quantity of opium and would
produce in the taker the effects of
opium, in a greater or less degree,
aeconfiiii: to the quantity taken.
The printed prescription says the
dose is twenty pills for each "mace"
of opium which the laker has been
in the habit of using. Can these
pills be said to lie a "preparation of
opium?" The chemist did not make
a quantitative analysis of the pills
but says they respond to the lest for
opium. The quantity of opium evi
dently bears a small proportion to the
other ingredients in the pills; and it
seems to me that Liu; compound could
haidly be called in a strict sense a
"preparation of opium." 11 would
be more appropi lately named after
its prinpjpal ingredient which is prob
ably "Ginseng." Hut the Legisla
ture in forbidding the "impoilation
of opium or any preparation there
of," evidently intended to exclude
fiom this kingdom any coin pound
which contains opium and 'which is
intended to be used as a narcotic.
Therefore, as the use of these pills is
within the evils sought to he prevent
ed by the law, I hold that they are
a "preparation of opium."
N-t only is tl.eir impoitation by
private parties forbidden, but by the
Act of 188li (suction 3, chiipter 7), if
they arc "found in any fahip within
the limits of any part of this king
dom such goods and articles and the
packages coiilaiuint! the same and all
merchandise or purt,of the invoice in
which such goods ami articles were
imported shall be forfeited. '-'
This case of pills was found in tlic
liaik Kitty at the dock in the harbor
of Honolulu, and by a strict con
struction of the statute it and the
invoice of which it is a part arc for
feited. The Deputy Attorney-Gen-eial
contends for ibis construction
and urges that the prosecution has
not to show guilty knowledge or a
fraudulent Intent to spciirp a fqrfeit
ui c. I agree with Ibis contention.
Hut the claimant may show by the
facts of the case that he did not in
tend to violate the law and import
the prohibited articles. He bhows
correspondence with his agent in
Hongkong in which he countermands
the wpjer previously sent for opium
pilli, The j''f.ler readied China after
.the Kilty had snjei for Honolulu,
lie says he believed ubo Jfp. 18, con
tained the prohibited pills and gui
rendered it to the custom house and
supposed caso 101 contained "oom
moi pills" not having opium in
tho'jii. jp dealt in medicines and
had ordered common pills,
A strict construction of the statute
would condemn tlic whole invoico on
account of the presence therein of
cose 8, which the importer rppu
dinted and delivered to the customs,
If the prohibited article was sent in
an invoice, incoutcsluhly without the
knowledge of the importer, by tho
construction contended for the inno
cent impoi ter would be punished for
the misdeeds of thu gui'ty consigner.
The presumption, of course, will
always exist that the importer is
awnro df the cotiltihls of the enscs ill
his invoice, Hut to say t'liat this
presumption Cannot bo repelled by
evidence would be unjust. The pro
ceeding for condemnation Is of a
criminal character; a forfeiture of
his goods punishes the importer as
well as a fine would. The rule of
law is that the offense must be estab
lished beyond a reasonable doubt
U. Si v. The Hrig Hurdctt 0 Peters
The pills in case 18 differ in ap
pearance from those in case 101.
The conduct of the claimant importer
throws a serious doubt upon the
question of Ids knowledge that the
pills in case 101 contained opium.
1 therefore declare forfeit case 101
and contents and release the rest of
the invoice. The claimant to pay
I havo not touched upon the
alleged undervaluation of tho peanut
oil in tlic invoice, because it is not
made a ground of condemnation in
the libel and, moreover the evidence
is that So in U. S. gold per caso
would be about the value of the arti
cle in Hongkong in Mexican silver.
