HOUSE OF HKl,r.E3BNTATIVX8.
As tho first item of business
this morning tho Ilouso pnsed on
third reading tho bill "relating to
tho duties on wine and sake.
A mossngo from tho Sonato an
nounced tho passage on third
reading by that body of the in
come tax and tho deleterious laud
bill. Also, that tho Sonato did
not concur in tho following sec
tions and items iu tho loan bill:
Sections 1 and 8; items: now
markot, Honolulu, JS1C20; now
road, Mahukona to Punhue, $2000;
now road from Haluwa stream to
the top of Pukaki hill, 52000. Tho
Sonato asked for a House confer
ence committee with Senators
McCandless, Baldwin and Hol
stein. Ministor Cooper as Attomoy
Goneral ad interim presented tho
following roply to questions pro
pounded by Piep. Bobortson :
1. Thol)opartmont lias had no
information that either of tho
stoamsinp companies woro dis-1
criminating in tho matter of
freight chargos. Upon iuvestiga-)
tion it is found that froicht rates
vary from $1.75 to $5 por ton,
weight or measurement ot tho
option of tbo company; tho
freight chargoy doponding upou
the class of freight carried, tho
distance carried, tho facilities for
handling aud lauding tho samo,
and the assistance rendered by
tho consignees. Tho companion
claim that they do not discrimin
ate against freight handled under
tho samo conditions as regards
quantity, frocpaoncy of shipments
and assistance rendored iu land
ing; all parties being treated
2. Discrimination on tho part
of common carriers, in eithor
freight or passenger rates, is un
3. Tho inter-island steamship
cpmpanies are Hawaiian corpora
tions, but hold no franchises from
tho Government and aro not sub
ject to control, except as provided
by tho general laws. I find
nothing that would givo tho pow
er to tho Dopartraont to intorforo
in matters of discrimination. It
would dovolvo upon tho party
injured to bring such action as
might bo necessary, in tho courts,
to deterraiuo tho quostion.
Two Houso bills passed second
roading: i. m j,
Bill for recording final judg
ments and decroes affecting titles
to land, and
Bill relating to the acknowledg
ing and recording of instruments
in winch thoro arointorliueationB,
orasuros or changes.
Hep. Hobortson under suspen
sion of the rules introduced a bill
to amond section 1 of a law of
1868, ontitlod an Act to amond
tho timo in which claims of credi
tors against tho estates of docoas
ed persons shall bo presented and
Biiits bo commenced to enforce
Bop. Kamauoha presented a
resolution to prevont tho intro
duction of any more new bills by
either individual mombors or
coramittoes. Ho was induced,
however, to stay his hand for nn

The Supremo Court by Justice
"Whitiug has rondorcd a unani
mous opinion in tho case of A.
Ktnilim VI. "W. F. Wilson, A.
C'ockburii and A. McDowell.
This is a suit for wages for labor
performed in connection with do
fondaut McDowell's attempt to
float tho stranded steamship Mio
wera. Tho plnintiiT tried to make
out that WilHoti and Cockburn
wero partners of McDowell in tho
vonturo, but th Knprumo Court
sustains the Circuit Court iu de
McDowoll agreed with tho two
other defondnuts, in considera
tion of tho loan to him of appara
tus, topay them $6000, which was
ono-tliird of what ho wos to uet
for floating the steamer, and to I
return thorn the apparatus, and in
caso of succpph to also buy
aud pay for the apparatus.
The valuo of tho apparatus fur
nished was $2500. As every
body knows, the vonturo failed.
Wilson and Cockburn, it is found,
hod taken no part in carrying out
the venture, nor did thoy in any
way hold themselves out as part
ners of McDowoll.
The Court finds there was no
actual partnership, and no intent
to create one, and holds that
"Wilson and Cockburn wero not
liable to third parties as partners
of McDowoll; also that the agree
ment was not n more cloak or
cover to conceal a latent design,
un-s,a dovico to escapo liability as

Irwin hold tho Ktimb im Bi'puritv
for indebtedness of both Cummins
and tho company to him. Word
was recoived from Mncfarlano
that tho money for the stock was
on tho way out from England, and
the'Court was prayed to interfere
bo that "reasonable timo" might
bo given for the purchaso price to
be paid. Judgo Carter in his de
cision holds that there must be a
tonder of the price before tho
contract could bo enforced, also
that it would be improper for tho
Court to enjoin tho disposition of
the stock awaiting the lapse of a
reasonable time. Thurston it
