from a carbunolo, and although

oft very woak. At tho time of tho
Hnwaiian Commissioners' visitto

frail from his former nppearanco

Shortly after tho advent of tho

NEW AUSTRALIAN LINE?
Talk of One Running Oat or Tocama
and Sound Ports.
Steamer Garonne May Be the Pioneer Ship
How In Klondike Trade
Call at Hawaii.
It is stated by tho Tacoma
Lodger that tho Frank Watorhouso
company will probably ostnblish
a Tacoma-Australian lino with the
steamer Qaronne ns tho pioneer
liner. The Qaronno is tho largest
steamship in tho Alaskan trade
aud ono of tho largest commercial
stoamers in tho North PaciGc.
Tho Garonno was in Tacoran
tho last week of Soptombor and
loft Victoria two or threo days
later for St. Micunol. It is expec
ted that this will bo hor last trip
of tho season to St. Michnol, and
tho steamer would then naturally
bo opon for other business.
Should the steamer go into tho
Tacoma Australian trado,she would
undoubtedly, shipping men say,
call at Hawaiian ports coming and
going, thus virtually adding to
tho island service of this port.
Tho Garonne, being undor tho
British flag, could also ruu out of
British Columbia ports, thoroby
being enabled to draw on the
traffic resources of that torritory
for n eharo of business and sup
port. While tho new lino to Australia
would, it is contended in shipping
circles, ossontially havo to look to
various Puget Sound ports, it is
conceded that Tacoma, with hor
large mauufacturinr establish
ments would get a largo eharo of
tho traffic, especially that for ox
American lloartl IMtellnz.

PRIVILEGES OF EXECUTOR
Case in Which the Statutory Exemption
Plea Does Not Lie.
Has to Prove the Property to Belong to Estate
or Defend a Suit as Individual
Judge Hitchcock's Death.
Lylo A. Dickey, snbatituto
Justice sitting with Chief Justico
Judd and Justico Whiting, is
author of a unanimous opinion of
tho Supremo Court on tho appeal
of plaintiff in Kauimnknnlu La
zarus vs. Joseph O. Carter on
points of law from tho District
Magistrate of Honolulu. Plaintiff
brought actiou of reploviu ngainst
dofondant for tho recovery of a
witch and jowolry. Dofondant
pleaded that, holding tho proporty
ns exocutor of tho oatato of Elen
zar Lazarus, ho could not be sued
for it within six months of tho
probate of tho will. This plea tho
Magistrate sustained. PlaintitT ap
pealed on tho point of law that
tho suit was against Mr. Carter as
an individual and not against tho
oatftto of which ho is executor.
The Suprome Court sustains tho
appeal of tho plaintiff, holding
"that as tho dofoudaut's ploa does
not douy that tho property was
plaintiff's, or resort that it was as
sets of his tostator, it admits that
tho proporty was plaintiff's and
that it is wrongfully detained
by dofondant. Henco dofondant
cannot assert his statutory exemp
tion kb executor from suit.
"If the proporty is not assets of
defendant's tcntutur, ho as oxecu
tor has no authority over it, nnd
ho is linblo as an individual for
wrongfully dtaiuiug it."
The caBO is remitted to tho
District Magistrate with directions
to overrule delondaut's plea. It
will bo uo. oisary for tho defen
dant to prove that tho property
dope not belong to tho plaintiff but
ii part of tho assetB of Eleazar La
