There is ti rush for homestead
claims in forfeited railroad lands in
California, as inanv as four hundred

What is wanted in Hawaii is the

could be great benefactors just now.

21 to 22 miles an hour.
A resolution to limit speeches in
commit too of tho whole to five min
utes each was laid aside, because tho
object of going into committee is to
give the utmost freedom of discus

between regular sittings and com
mittee of tho whole, in tho Hawaiian
Legislature, with regard to the con
duct of discussions, that committee
of tho whole might almost as well
bo abandoned altogether.

placed on the forward derrick of Dredger,
about 110 feet above oa level, which can be

One of tho free lances of tho Ad
vertiser is croaking ovor tho sending
of an officer to San Francisco to
bring back a murderer. Ho calls tho
mission an unsuccessful one because
tho culprit was not brought back,
as if a Honolulu policeman could sot
aside tho operation of United States
law in the United States. Such
criticism as this destroys tho effect
of any honest criticism that may by
accident appear in tho same me
dium. II is beneath contempt.
A rumor that Great Britain is
bidding for tho purchase of Niihau

the subject of an interpellation of
tho Minister of Foreign Affairs by
Hon. R. W. Wilcox. This country
could not afford to outer into any
such negotiation without tho cordial
assent of tho United States. Our
great neighbor can easily make our
financial situation much worse than
it has been made by the McKinloj
Act, if wo give her any cause for re
sentment or retaliation.

Tho certificate matter has been

Committee on Finance, only to show
the House that it has wasted its
time ovor factional moonshine.
Everything was square and straight
forward about tho certificates, tho
only thing out being tho illegal is
sue of tens, which was promptly
remedied. That error was caused
simply by an oversight that was not
appallingly criminal in view of tho
amount of tinkering the currency
law sustained in successive sessions
for tho past decade.

Interior Olllce, July If, lti2.
A question to the Minister of the
Interior in tho Legislature has eli
cited tho interesting information
that tho dredge is clearing a way, in
advance of the complete work, across
tho bar to admit tho French flagship
Dubourdiou into tho harbor. This
ship draws twenty-five foot of water,
and will require two or throe foot
more for safety in tho swell. Tho
management is confident, of being
able to give that depth to-night, in
which case tho Dubourdiou will
come inside at high tide (8 o'clock)
to-morrow morning. A salute will
bo fired and ship dressed on cross
ing tho bar in honor of tho Govern
ment's enterprise in opening tho
portals of Honolulu's commerce to
the largest shipping. There is noth-,
ing more gratifying in all our affairs
to-day than tho near prospect of
having tho embargo on our harbor
It is not likely that Mr. Gladstone
will be able to pass an Irish homo
rule measure that will satisfy the
Irish Homo Rulers. A majority of
forty is very slim in a Homo of near
ly seven hundred members, and that
majority will probably not bo una
nimously agreed on tho details of
any measure that may bo presented.
Should somo sort of a scheme go
through, the House of Lords would
likely defeat it, justifying its action
on tho ground of thosmalluessof tho
majority that carried tho bill in tho
Commons. Tho Ministry would
then appeal to tho country, and that
would bo tho critical lime for homo
rule. There would thou bo a tangi
ble issue before tho country not
the promise of a measure but the
naked bill after passing through the
parliamentary crucible. If tho coun
try rejected it, oven if tho real in
fluence works was a Conservative re
action owing to foreign complica
tions, home rule would be dead lor
a good ten years.
Mr. Justice Dole's article in Thurs
day's BuLMrrtN brings tho vory im
portant question of the reorganiza
tion of tho Judiciary prominently
forwaul. His Honor refers to tho
report of the Royal Commission to
tho Legislature of 1888. That in
port is an elaborate doeumont, giv
ing st rong reasons in a clear man
ner for a radical change in tho
structure of the Supremo Court.
Tho Commission consisted of San-
ford H.Dole, Alfred S.Hart well, and
Clarence W. Ashford. It submitted,
attached to its report, a bill to bring
about the objects leeoinmoiidod.
Tho bill has been laid over for two
sessions, as if our legislators shrank
from dealing with a subject or such
magnitude and far-reaching impor
tance, 11 is really a matter in which
haste would not be seemly. There
should bo undisputed evidence that
the proposed change was acceptable
to both tho bar and tho public. As
to tho legal fraternity, not a member
has opposed tho measure in the four
years il has been extant. Tho ques
tion has been discussed in a general
way on election campaign platforms
and somewhat exhaustively in the
press, without creating or evoking
any sentiment, so far as public utter
ance is concerned, other than that
the present system has grave defects
calling for early remedy.
The main proposal in tho dratted
Judiciary Act is to transform tho
Supremo Court, as it stands to-day
with three Justices, into a strictly
appellate court. Tho Justices would
not preside at jury tonus, but ex
orcise generally their present func
tions when sitting in banco. It will
of course have its present powers,
also, of superintending courts of in
ferior jurisdiction, of passing on tho
constitutionality of Acts of tho
Legislature, etc. Tho desirability
of having a court of final review,
composed of Justices who have none
of thorn previously tried any of tho
matters coining boforo thorn on ap
peal, has been so fully sot forth bj
tho Commission and again by Judge
Dole that it needs not to bo enlarged
on here. It is tho want of such a
com I that has been the central cause
of complaint in the agitation for
Other changes of importance are
a thorough re-organization of the
Ciicuit Court system and the enact
ment of tho English common law.
There will bo an additional Circuit
established, being for the island of
Oahu. For this Circuit two Justices
are provided; for each of tho other
four Circuits, one. Circuit Justices
shall reside in tho Districts in which
thoy respectively hold their courts.
Thoy will have all the ordinary
powers of judges of the Supreme
Court, as at present constituted,
holding jury terms and hearings at
chambers, etc. Their salaries will
bo three thousand dollars a year, and
their tenure of office during good
behavior. Tho enactment of the
English common law, as modified
1)3' our own statutes, will remove an
anomalous condition that has long
been a matter of dissatisfaction.
One could never toll when or whore
the common law was going to strike.
Sometimes it. was everything, again
it was nothing, according as the
judge's discretion directed. As it
was novor employed point blank
where Hawaiian law mot tho case,
while proving of great utility
where Hawaiian law was deficient,
and as its enactment does not put it
above Hawaiian law, tho common
law might just as woll bo enacted,
when tho bar and litigants would
know where they stood always.
For tho minor details of tho bill,
thoy, like tho major provisions, seem
to have been carefully considered
and drawn. It is a bill that it would
be dangerous to tinker indiscrimi
nately according to the furtive
notions of legislators. Wo have a
suggestion to make in this re
gard, Give members the printed
bill a week to ponder ovor with
minus ireo iroin bias, xnen give a
day for discussion without giving
finality to motions to amend, but
noting down all objections and sug
gestions that are sustained on vote,
to bo referred with tho bill for ono
week to tho Judiciary Committee
for revision. At the lapse of the
time decide tho fate of tho bill,
whether amended or not, as a
whole. This may not bo all regular,
but the bill had bettor be killed
than mangled by an impatient
