struck us to-daj', ono of which i- "'

road boards, in tho siv months since

THAT MILLION SUIT.
When jtho "million dollar suit"
was entered by tho Waikapu Sugar
Co. against Jtho Hawaiian Commer
cial & Sugar Co. tho Bulletin pub
lished a short description of the
nature of tho ease. Tho plaintifl
corporation desired a jury trial of
tho issues, but tho matter ultimately
caino to a suit in equity the II. C.
& S. Co. suing for a bill of partition.
It was on this tho hearing was hold
Tho lands in question are known
as tho Waikapu Commons, an area
of twelve to fifteen bundled acie.s,
unequally divided by a range of
sand hills. At tho hearing the H.
C. & S. Co. admitted having occu
pied ono-thiul of the hinds held in
common by itself and the V. S. Co.,
of which each company has an un
divided half interest. Tho II. C. fc
S. Co. has planted a portion of tho
side it occupied, and put a fonco
around their cano fields. Tho Wai
kapu Co. has had tho use of all the
remainder of tho land, planting some
of it a few hundred acies, or all it
had wator for and devoting the
rest to pasturage. Having more
water than tho other company, tho
IT. C. S; S. Co. was able to plant
Tho question for tho Com t to de
cide is, both having a half interest
in tho whole teiritory and each hav
ing occupied a sopaiato part of it,
whether one company can have an
accounting of the other. Tho i . -i-ual
claim of tho Waikapu Compaq
was that tho Hawaiian company had
ousted it fiom half the land and
should pay it one million dollars as
compensation for illegal exclusion
audits sharo of tho profits of the
sugar raised by tho H. C.&S. Co, No
ousting was shown to have taken
place. Neither Mr. Maefarlano nor
Mr. Cormvoll of tho complaining
company had ivor protested against
tho planting of cano by Mr. Spreck
ols' coinpaiiy. Thoy had novor asked
for tho use of any portion of tho
land that was fenced in by that com
pany. Mr. Macfarlane, although
stating that ho had died for a long
time to get a division of tho land,
could not say that ho ically wanted
a division of tho land but payment
for use of it fiom tho other com
pany. Mr. Kpteckols claimed in Cottit
that tho land was ued by his com
pany under a vetbal agreement with
Mr.'V. II. Coruwell, but tho latter
denied knowledge of such tin agree
ment. THE PLANTERS' MONTHLY.
Tho Planters' Monthly for .Inly
contains, besides a variety of selec
tions hearing on sugar raising, let
lors from Mr. Andrew Moore, mana
ge, r of Paauhau plantation, and Prof.
Uilgaid, of tho agricultural station
connected with tho California Uui
voihity, on tho subject of seed cano.
Mr. U. A. Maelio, Jr., formerly man
ager of tho Kilauea plantation,
Kauai, writes a letter fiom Brazil,
giving much iufoimation about tho
sugar industiy in that country, lie
tells of tho distillery attached to
each sugar factory, whereby "all tho
molasses, filter press and tank wash
ings, and sweet wateis of all kinds,
ean bo cotnerted into a valuable
product." Als'o, ho tolls of central
factories in successful operation, and
has tho following loferenco to labor:
I am just leaving Bahia and do so
with a certain regret, as I have
found tho country and climate pleas
ant, and cut tain of the people most
hospitable and agreeable. A Hawa
iian planter cannot but bo struck
with the facility with which cano
ean bo grown without tho heavy ex
penses ol tho Hawaiian Islands, the
great advantage of cheap negro la
bor, and tho superiority of a settled
population compared to the eer
changing aliens that Hawaiian plant
ers depend on for labor. It is a real
pleasure to see tho many dirty but
happy children that stiriound each
negro hut and gio it a homelike air,
that ono may look for in vain
amongst tho (Jhinoo and Japanese
quaiters of the islands.
When a learned piofessor makes
the declaration that "every cheap
money experiment that lias over been
made has resulted in precisely the
same doinonstiation" as the Rhode
Island cheap money, "and tho same
fate awaits all tlio-o of the futuie,"
he does not depend upon historical
facts to support his declarations,
nor reason, but upon the supposed
ignorance of his leadois who he
thinks will leceivo his bold deelaia-
tions as facts not to bo disputed and
as reasons most piofound. The
5(50,000,000 leferred to in my last
communication never depreciated a
farthing, neither was it redeemable
in coin on demand. This alone
should pioo tho falsity of his de
claration, but 1 will refer to other
Mr. Jefferson, in a letter dated
Juno 21, 18115, directed to a member
of the Committee of Waj's and
Moans of tho House of Iteprosonta
tives, says: "In tho war of
17."i5, our State Virginia availed it
self of this fund, by issuing a
paper currency, bottomed on a
specilie tax for its redemption, and
to instil o tho cm edit, bearing an inte
rest of live percent. Within a very
short time, not a bill of this omission
was found in circulation. It was
locked up in tho chests of executors,
guardians, widows, farmers," etc.
"Wo then issued bills bottomed on
a redeeming tax but bearing no inte
rest. These wore received and novor
depreciated a single farthing." Dr.
Franklin makes a similar statement
respecting an issue of a paper cur
rency by the colony of Pennsylvania
When the act of Congress of Oct.
12, 18.'57, authorizing an issue of
Treasury notes was pending, Mr.
Calhoun advocated the measuro in
strong terms. The following is an
extract fiom a speech delivered by
him Sept. 10th prior to the passage
of tho bills. Ho said: "It may throw
some light on this subject to state
that Noith Catolina, just after the
unolution, issued a largo amount of
paper, which was made locoivablo in
dues to her; it was also made a legal
tender, but which, of course, was not
obligatory after (lie adoption of tho
Fedoial Constitution. A large
amount, say between four and iio
bundled thousand dollars, remained
in ciiculatiou after that period, and
continued to circulate, for more than
twenty years, at par with gold and
silver during the whole time, with
no other advantage than being 10
coived in tho revenue of tho State,
which was much less than one hun
dred thousand dollars per annum,"
Hy tho above it maybe seen that
theio have been issues of cheap
money not ledeeinable in coin, that
, ing the Century wiitei's piediction
j that "the same fate awaits all those
' (issues of cheap money of the
. future" as the Khodo Island cheap
I money," it is logical, that if there
ever was a cheap money issue not
redeemable in coin that did not
depreciate, other issues maybe made
that will not depreciate, if embody
ing tho same principles and sur
roundings. We claim tho issues of
the Hank of Hawaii, having all the
virtues of the currencies rofeired to
above and some advantages not pos
sessed by them, should certainly be
as acceptable as thoy Mere, as a
money for homo use.

In leply to tho letter wiitton by a
few toutists in your issue of the 2rth
iust., 1 reiterate my statement that
the road is in bad condition and that
but little has been done to it since
it was first constructed. Those who
have not been oor it must under
stand that it is over pasture land a
great part of tho way, tho piesent
track is in many places tho best ono
of two or three, the othors having
been abandoned after being worn,
blown and washed away, so that if
the course wero limited as an ordin
ary road is, by a fonco, it would bo
Did a few tourists notice between
the half-way house and Julian Mon
sarrat's pasture the different courses
that had been abandoned and the
same in tho II. A. Co'y's pasture on
approaching Pahala? And do thoy
not think t,ho piesent course must
in many places very soon bo either
repaired or abandoned?
1 cannot but think that tho
imagination of this lady and gentle
men must have boon swollen by tho
raio atmosphere of Kau at tho timo
they passed from tho Volcano House
to Punaluu, or that thoy wore blind
and felt hot.
1 have no ill feeling at all towaids
Mr. Lee. I rocogni.o his onoigy in
making a waj- for travel from Puna
luu to tho Volcano, and I hope tho
Legislature will pass a bill to buy
his load, but at its actual cost. Tho
figuies given by mo in my former
letter, as to tho cost, aro such as
were givon by Mr. Leo in conversa
tion at the time ho built tho load.
1 think if anything tho amount 1
have given is a little over that men
tioned by him. I shall answer noth
ing more on this subject, and, not
withstanding tho objections of a
fow tomists, 1 still sign nry.solf

Torriblo l?ato of a Portuguoso La
borer on Punchbowl.
A fatal accident happened at 2
o'clock this afternoon at the sand
quairy on Punchbowl to a Poitu
gueo named John Siheira. The
story of Joseph Cook, luna at the
quarry, seen on the spot by a Buu.r.
tin reporter, is as follows:
John Silveiia applied for work
this morning, but was refused. Ilo
pleaded so hard, saying that he was
penniless and needed money for
food, ho was set to work digging at
the sand bank. Twice he was warn
ed not to dig in underneath, but
work fiom the top, jet he still per
sisted in tho contiary course. The
luna loft him working by himself
and wont to Victoria stieot, where
there was a gang of men working,
Ho had boon gone there but a little
while when a natho lushed up and
said that tho embankment where the
Portuguese was woiking had caved
A gang of workmen soon arrived
and cleaied tho haul sand from off
him, but it was too late, as the man
had boon smothered to death. He
was cut in several places and pre
sented a pitiful sight. His widow,
who is left penniless, was distracted
and lan round like a wild woman.
Sho said that hor home was bare of
the necessaries of life. Deputy Mar
shal J. A. Mohrten empaneled a
jury on the spot, who wero sworn
over tho dead body. A coroner's in
quest will bo hold to-moriow after
noon at 1 :.'!() o'clock.
PIRACY AND MURDER.
A Series of Tragedies on a Vessel
from San Francisco.
News has been brought to Yoko
hama by the sehoonor Snipau of a
tumble ease of murder and piracy
on the high seas, tho perpetrators of
which were seen in irons by some of
the men of that vessel before their
departuio fiom tho Caioline Islands
for Yokohama. A fow months ago
tho schooner Undine, of 180 tons
burden, owned, it is believed, by Mr.
Ciawfmd of San Francisco, sailed
from thai port for tho South Sea
islands in command of a Captain
Castella. Tho vessel's complement
consisted of the master, mate, live
men befote the mast, a supeicaigo
and the steward, all shipped in San
Francisco. Tho vessel touched at
Honolulu, and while laying there a
man called on boaid and asked leave
to accompany the cruiser to the
South Seas. He announced himself
as the brother of the mate, and his
lequest was theiefore leadily giant
ed. About tlnee days out from Ho
nolulu one of tho two biothets shot
tho captain in cold blood in his
cabin, and the same fate befell the
too inquisitive suporcaigo on his
going below to discover tho trouble.
The rest of tho men woie called aft,
and, it is said, weio plied with poi
soned liquor. All weio made away
with by tho two desperado biothors
excepting the steward, who is said
to have been offeied a bribe of SI 000
to remain "mum," the men further
threatening him with sine death if
ho revealed the horiiblo tale. Touch
ing at an island a ciow of natives
woro shipped to iko tho places of
tho niuuloied men, rpi! the cruiser
then proceeded to the Ascension
Islands. A pilot was engaged to
take the vessel into one of the har
bors there, and to him tho stoward
seems to have disclosed the murder
of the unfortunate Castella and his
moil. On getting ashore tho pilot
at once infoiined the authorities,
and tho vessel was boarded by tho
military and tho two pirate brothers
arrested and placed in irons, being
afterward convoked to Manila in ono
of tho government mail boats. S.
