The Sandwich Island question
has lately received some attention
by tho present officials of tho Na

quoetion of vital importance to tho
enterprising and intelligent Amer

ment it would bo one of the
wealthiest, and would encourage
men of intelligence and wealth to
locate in it.
The pioneers, in making this
great change, havo been mainly
Americans. As so littlo is knowu
of this country or of its great re
sources, a brief statement of its
greatness may have a little ollect
in causing those who will soon be
in power to make up tho im
portance of the question,8o justice
will bo done to a suffering pooplo
with a just causo, who in tho near
future will aid in adding wealth
and prosperity to all tho peoplo
this side of tho Bocky Mountains.
Tho oldest pionoor in develop
ing and bringing tho resources of
tho Islands into notico is Capt.
Castle. More than seventy years
ago his ship was wrocked on the
coast near whore tho present city
of Honolulu stands. Ho hnd no
way to "return to his homo in ono
of tho New England States. Ho
treated tho natives kindly, and did
not havo the same fate as Capt.
Cook. Castle was tho first man
to appreciate the climate, as well
as tho great resources. He was,
I believe, tho first ono to com
mence the production of sugar.
He was also the first, after Cali
fornia was admitted as a State, to
bring his own and his neigh
bors' sugar to San Franoisco.
On one of his annual visits with
sugar, I was introduced to him by
my old friend L. P. Tenny. Capt.
Castle fully detailed his condition
and trials, tho ground, olimato,
scenery and resources, and ex
pressed the hope that at no dis
tant day the islands would bocomo
a part, of our common country.

for tho last season amounts to $12,

A uuuuimous opinion of tho
Supreme Com t, written by Chief
Justice Judd, lias been rendered
in the nppenl of tlio Oahu Rail
way twid Lnud Company against
Jonathan Shaw, Tax Assessor.
The Court decides questions as
to methods of valuing leaseholds
for taxation, and concludes thus:
"A leasehold may vary in valuo
from year to year. Wo might,
using our own judgment, and con
sidering all the circumstances of
this particular case, put tho valua'
tion at various amouuts between
that put by the assessor, $103,000,
and that relumed by the taxpayer,
S40.000. ,But in view of tho
meager evidence before us, we
profor not to make an arbitrary
assessment which might bo wide
of the maik, aud we, finding tho
assessor's method of calculating
tho valuo erroueoun, hold that the
amount returned by the taxpayer
must slaud. Judgment accord
ingly." Circuit Judge Cartor sat on the
case in place of Associate Justice
Frear, disqualified. C. Brown ap
peared for appellant, and Thurs
ton & Stanley for tho assessor.
In the lax appeal of James I.
Dowsett and John K. Sumner, the
Court sustains tho valuation of
188,000 fixed by tho assessor and
affirmed by tho. Tax Appeal Court.
Counsel the sumo rb in1 tho first
case above reported. The law de
cided is in briof that the moiety
not leaded otv a valuable trect of
land, held by two tonants in com
mon, may bo properly considered
as of tho same valuo as tho moioty
under lease, and that the statutory
method of fixing tho valuation of
tho wholo land at eight times the

that of tho moiety leased for
eight years, iB applicable to this
In tho appeal of tho Inter-Island
Steam Navigation Company
ogainst tho judgment of tho Tax
Appeal Court, affirming tho valu
ation made by Assessor Shaw, tho
unanimous opinion of tho Sup
reme Court, by Assooiato Justice
Frear, is adverse to tho appoal.
Tho aBsossraont is upheld accord
ing to tho following syllabus:
"Under sections 17 and 08, Act
51, Laws of 189G, which provide
that real and porsonal property,
or uovoral classes or kinds or par
cols of real or personal, property,
when combined and made tho
basis of an onterprise for profit,
shall bo assessed as a whole, tak
ing into consideration tho net pro
fits, gross receipts and running
expenses of the onterprise,
and, in the caao of a 'cor
poration, tho market valuo of its
stock, and all othor facts bear
ing upon tho value of tho proper
ty; held, thut tho earnings, and,
in tho caso of a corporation, the
market valuo of tho stock, should
not be taken as the solo or conclu
sive test of the valuo of tho pro
erty but that thoy aro neverthe
ess important factors in deter
mining suoh value, whether the
proporty consists chiofly of real
estato as in tho caso of a railroad
company, or of personal estate, as
in the case of a steamship com
pany. "Proporty so oombined may
as a wholo bo of rauoh groater valuo
than tho sum of tho values of its
several parts regarded separately.
"In this caso, tho assessment of
tho plaintiff's property, consisting
chiefly of steamships, ship olmnu
lory. coal and real estate, as a
wholo at $-171,300, is sustained,
though tho plaintiff roturned tho
aggrogato valuo of its proporty,
roRardod as separato itoms, at
"Proof if made, that tho assessor
did not proceed in tho sarao way
in estimating tho valuo of tho pro
perty of all corporations, would
not be sufficient to invalidate tho
entire assessment on tho ground
of fraudulent discrimination."
