J. M. Homer, tho ontcrprising
planter ot Humakun, who was a
Reform member of the Ilouso of
Nobles under tho monarchy, has
begun a series of articles in tho
Hilo Tribuno, in which ho com
pares or rather contrasts tho Ha
waiian with the American repub
lic. Referring to tho fourth of
July in his initial articlo, Mr.
"Thu abovo (Into is also the
birthday of our Hawaiian Repub
lic, which professedly aims at tho
same perfect ropublicau stnndnrd
as tho people of tho Great Repub
lic onjoy. Thus fur, howover, but
little progress hns boon mado hero
towards said ropublicau standard.
A constitution has boon formulat
ed, tho King has been exchangod
for a President aud tho namo
changed from tho 'Kingdom
of Hawaii' to 'Tho Republic of
Hawaii.' Thus far very fow
other chrfnges have beeu made.
Tho people nro yot hold in Gov
ernment lending strings tho snmo
ns thoy woro under the monarchy.
Tho Legislature failed of an im
portant duty when it noglected to
paBB tho necessary lnws for organ
izing the country into a ropnblio
of which 'homo nilo' should have
beeu tho fundamental principle
and without that wo aro a repub
lic only in tho name. Exchang
ing a King for a President and
ono name for uuotlior does not
coustituto a republic."

ry Herbert ami is approved by
Murder iB tho only crime which
is made punishable by death, and
it makes no differenco whether tho
crime is committed by an officer
or by an enlisted man.
If an officer iH found guilty of
using profane language a court
may sentence him to lose two
numbers that is, the officer must
retain his present number in the
list of lieutenants, if lie holds that
rank, until two juniors hnva been

An officer who should bo guilty

Judge Curler has rendered a
decision on tho bill for cancella
tion of mortgage and iujunction,
brought iu equity by Almira M.
Katiauauui aguinst James Ash
ford. On July 0, 1893, Knnann
conveyed a pieco of real estato iu
Wailuku to tho plaintiff, Mrs. Ka
hanaUui, subjoct to a mortgago to
J. Garcia, for $1800. On Septom
bor 28, 1893, Garcia assigned tho
mortgago, together Mith the noto ,
and property secured thoroby, to
V. V. Ashford, and ho on April
19. 1895, assigned the snmo to hie
fnthor, James Ashford, this as
signment boing subsequent to tho
due date of tho note.
Tho plaintiff alleged in her bill
that V. V. Ashford was indebted
to hor in largo sums of money for
services rendered and in part
payment gavo and delivered to
her tho sum of ono thousand dol
lars and subsequoutly paid said
sum to Garcia tho mortgagee and
arranged with him to tako tho
produce of tho land in payment
of tho balanco of tho indobtod
ncsB. Plaintiff urged, first, indebted
ness of V. V. Ashford for Bervices ,
ns housekeeper, and caring for
him when sick, and acting ns in
terpreter, nnd part payment of tho '
samo; anil, secondly, executed gift ..
from V. V. Ashford, tho sorvicc-j
being tho motive of the samo. TIid
Court fiuds that tho allegation of
indebtedness is not borne out by
tho testimony. Tho ovidenco oi!
tho plaintiff directly negatives tho
allegation, aud is, that V. Y. Ash
ford and horsolf wero living to
gothor as husband nnd wifo, that
tho services rondored woro uot for
money, that V. V. Ashford paid
her houso rout and food, aud sup
ported her genorally.
Hor ovidenco further was that
V. V. Ashford, when ho hando.l
her a bag of gold containing
$1000, told hor to put it in hor
valise, as it was to bo paid on ac
count of tho mortgago. Sho tes-
titiod that no said tuo mouoy waa
a gift to hor for all sho had douo
fur him, also that sho was not
nwnro that tho nssignment at
mortgago was in tho namo of V.V.
Ashford until shortly prior to his
lenviug tho country in tho oarly
part of Mny, 1895.
V. V. Ashford in his deposition
doniod that n gift wns made of
tho funds. More convincing than
this denial, tho Court Bays, wero
tho acts aud admissions of 'tho
plaintiff. From tho time that V."
V. Ashford paid off tho mortgago
and took tho assignment ho exor
cised control over tho place. Ho
sent hor to Maui to soil tho taro,
and sho paul tho rocoipts to him.
Money collected whilo ho was in
jail, for misprision of treasoiij wns
tendorod to him by tho plumtiil'
whilo ho was iu custody. Hot
nets wero thoso of ono who know
that V. Y. Ashford had a olnitn '
on tho laud, and who also know
that all income from tho laud
should bo paid over to him.
There can bo no doubt that
Ashford paid Chimin's mortgago
off to please Mrs. Kahauauui, us
sho looked upon tho plucq as at
home, and thoso related to hor '
woro getting a livelihood from tho
land and living there. "But tho
ovidonoo does not provo a gift,"
Judgo Cartor concludes, "but on
tho coutrary proves that it was
money advancod by V.Y. Ashford,
who looked to tho laud for reim
bursement and it wiib bo under
stood by both Mrs. Kahnunuui
and Ashford. Bill dismissed."
