MAKE TITLES SURE.
It ought to be enough to seo
the largo crop of ejectment cases
in the courtfl, to iueluco tlm grout
est possible caro iu investigating
ronl estate titles in tlieso islauelB.
So many of those suits aro success
fill, in some cased ilixpo-Aessing
inuocont third or more remotely
connected parties, that one not
looking behind tho returns might
bo paidoned for regarding our
whole system of land transfers,
with tho registration of convey
ftticos as well, with considerable
suspicion. Some investigation
would show, however, that tho
troubles in question do not
originate with tho machinery of
couvejancosat all. If purchasers
of real estate would oithor with
their own eyes ,pr those of hired
epertB go below the surface of
protrorrd titlo3, there would bo
a diminution of ejectment cases
and those that arose would bo in
a less proportion successful than
they are now. Only tho other
day tho occupiers of certain pro
perty were adjudgod to have no
legal tenure of possession, bo
cause it belonged to othors under
tho will of a foimor proprietor
which had been duly probated.
This was a link iu tho chain of
titles which ought to have boon
discovered by investigation
bofore tho passage of tho
property, to the hands of tho
patties thus dispossessed. Late
ly a piece of laud with titles ap
parently as clear as day for two
coituiu trnusfeid was bought by a
tesidont of llouoluln, who spout
many hundreds of dollars in im
proving tho propetty after ho had
taken possession. His title was
subseeiuoutly attacked by proceed
iugs iu ejectment. An investiga
tion, that should have been mado
before ho bought the property,
sure enough icvealed a weak liuk
iu tho chain. It appeared that a
woman had taken a ileuil ot tho
lot ftoni her minor eon, snel later
convoyed it by deed to a thiul party
whether tho misled purchaser
hero mentioned or not is beside
the questiou. Tho sore fact is
that the sou coming of ago repu
diated the eule made in hia mino
rity. What tho outcome haB been,
if the matter is yet determined,
the I3rr,LCTiN has not inquired.
Tho caso is only stated to empha
sizo tho caution now given for
purchasoiH of real estato to givo
tho titlps tho closest scrutiny. A
word to the wiso is sullhsient.
It would appour that the makers
of tho Constitution of this Repub
lic rather slopped over in piecau.
tions for an untraraineled voto of
the electorate, when thoy mado
it obligatory for an elector to havo
paid his taxes, for the year pre
ceding an election year, throe
mouths beforo beginning registra
tion and eight mouths beforo the
mouth iu which the oloction takes
place. A clean tax account at tho
opouiug of registration ought to
have been deemed a sullicienl safe
guard, especially when candidates
aro ncvor announced in this coun
try until quito close to tho oloction.
By a decision of tho highest
court reported yesterday, it is
seen that the Government cauuot
restrict tho scopo of operations of
corporations. If an application
for a charter describes tho objocts
of a corporation, that is enough
with a fow ronlino requirements.
There is a eontiinout having hold
iu tho public mind without re
gard to tho specific case now decided--that
it is time, now iu this
country, to havo legislation to r'o
gnlnte tho scopo of corporations.
Owing to tho largo amount of
space takou up by tho summary of
Mr. Gorbording's paper ou beet
sugar, comment thereon must be
reserved for tho future. The arti
cle suggests much thought along
more than ono lino for our people
iikct niuah in;vn.oiUKNr.
Continued from hi Page.
Gorbordiug has been too liberal
in1 his cstimato of tho product.
Ho shows from his notebook a
lower porcoutago of suijar iu beets
for ISOt than for ISM owing to
the tickle climate. A factory
that ono year makes a
profit of 25 per cent ho says
cau tho next year make a loss. It
is his conclusion, however, that is
interesting to Hawaii. He e.
presses himself thus:
"What, thou, does stand in tho
way of further development of tho
iudustry? Nothing, except a
rational protection on tho part of
tho Government. A protective
duty of 1J cents per pound, as is
at present talked of, is in reality
no protection to the iudustry iu
California, owing to tho freo en
try of Hawaiian sugar. As long
as tho Reciprocity treaty with
Hawaii exists, there cau bo no
protection in a specific or any
other duty. Tho treaty should be
modified as to sugar, or, if the
treaty must be maintained for
political reasons, then a bounty
slymlil be paid tho domostic pro-
llnrtl I lme I'arty.

We have recently imported
a few little novelties for the
household which we are sure
will find ready appreciation
among Honolulu people.
A Cigar Rest and Ash Tray
is something new. It can be
fastened to any table and is

! sociable game of cards. It is

clip, contains a receptacle for
the lighted cigar and another
for the ashes. It takes up little
or no space, doesn't tip your
hand to the other fellow or
make any side remarks about,
your bad playing, but by its
convenience leads to that Feel
ing of satisfaction and content
ment without which no man
can properly play the great
American game of whist.
People have often wondered
why barkeepers always mix-
cocktails to order instead of
-laking up a lot and keeping
them on hand. The reason is
that they never taste as well
after standing. The same rea
soning applies to lemonade, the
delicate aroma of the lemon
and the other stuff you flavor
the lemon with disappears on
standing. We have Lemonade
Shakers in sizes to suit from
one to six persons, so that you
can make just the requisite
amount. They are in silver or
nickel as preferred.
Gem Ice Shavers will be
found both economical and
labor saving in mixing cold

The plated spoons and forks
mado by the Holmes & Ed
wards Silver Company cannot
be distinguished from solid sil
ver, except in weight. The
ptitterns are identical with tho
solid goods, and tho bowls and
handles aro reinforced with
sterling silver, so that those
parts of the spoous which come
in contact with the table aro
well protected and will last as
long as solid ware. Every piece
sold by us is guaranteed by
the manufacturers, by this cer
tificate: "Wc guarantee thchC goods in or

five Years, and in hotels from Ten to
Fifteen Years. Wc also qgree to ac

In buying these inlaid goods
you practically havo tho use of
them for thirty years at half
what you originally pay for
them. No other manufacturers
give such a guarantee; no other
manufacturer can afford to.
