Justices Frear and Whiting, without

Wilder of tho Fourth Circuit In John
O. Jones vs. Francisco do Lima and
Adolph Hussmann. A peculiarity In
tho case Is 'tho fact that tho record of

Tho suit was a libel In equity to set
asldo a deed.
In his declaration plaintiff set forth
tho following statements: Judgment
for $806.31 was entered in favor of
Jones against do Lima for debt on Jan
uary 7. On January 1G do Lima by deod
conveyed land at Kaauhulu to Huss
mann, his son-in-law, for $730, which
was Inadequate, the land being worth
at least $1200.
Separate answeis were made by tho
defendants. They alleged that do Lima
mortgaged tho land In question to
Hussmann as far back as May 13, 1S9S,
also denied that tho consideration for
its conveyance was inadequate
Judgo Wilder found that tho mort
gago was cancelled when not in default
and having ten years to run beforo ma
turity. Ho ndjudged the deed of con

aside and declared null and void.

HITS EXECUTIVE ORDER
Mr. Acht Moves Scorching Resolution
io Council of State,
Hade Second Order for Today Committee en
Inarlor Items Imiiti Evtij thing
Present nt tho Council of Stnte yes
terday were: President Dole, Minis
ters Mott-Smlth, Young nnd Damon;
Councillors Isenberg, Achl, Allen, Ka
ne, Robertson, Qonsalves, Nott. Gear,
Junes, Hobtnson and Kaulukou.
Tho following resolution was Intro
duced by Mr. Achl:
Resolved, That it is tho sense of the
Council of Stato that tho Executive
Orders ot tho President, published In
regard to the Court of Claims, nro un
fair and unjust nnd must bo changed.
Mr. Achl spoke at length In adverse
criticism ot the Order. Ho laid par
ticular iitrcss on tho barihii; out ot
lcascholdcis from tho benetfta of tho
Court of Claims. Wlilio believing tho
resolution ought to pass, ho was will
ing to mako It tho order for a futuic
day, so that tho Government might
havo time to prepare their reply.
Mr. Gear seconded tho motion and
would favor making tho resolution tho
Bpcclal order for Filduy afternoou fol
lowing action on the report of tho spe
cial committee on Act No. -7. He had
been Informed by a member of tho
Uoard of Health that hi all probability
thcro would ho six thousand claims,
and that the proceedings would occupy
four or flvo years. That meant $12,000
In attorney's fees besides tho retaining
fco of $2500 on tho Government sldo
alone. The speaker was against tho
Court altogether, but if It was to go
on ho wanted Its published regulations
amended. If tho Government was not
to hold Itself liable fyr judgments, tho
Court might bo regarded as simply n
piece of machinery started for the
sake ot seeing it running.
Mr. Young presented tho excuses of
tho Attorney General for absence, nnd
said he heartily approved of having
tho matter made a spoolnl order for to
morrow. Tho President, In u conversational
discussion with. Mr. Gear, took excep
tion to tho statement that the' Govern
ment held Itself not liable. Ho claim
ed that tho provision that tho Court
should flx tho liability answered tho
Tho motion carried.
Mr. Damon brought up tho matter uf
tho Item tor a purchasing agent ot tho
Hoard ot Health, and Mr. Gear naked
for nnother day to await consideration
by tho Hoard that afternoon. Granted.
Lonn Fund Money,
Act No. 4 was taken up, being for
expenditures under tho loan bill of
189G, and items passed as below:
Interior Department: New wharf at
Paplha, Nahlku and approaches, un
paid bills 1809. $491.20.
Harbor Improvements, Honolulu,
$zuu,uuu, committee recommciiiiins
Mr. Young, In answer to Mr. Robert
son, said tho harbor belonged to tho
United Stutcs, but wharves and slips
would belong to .tho local government.
Ho mentioned somo of tho Improve
ments contemplated, Including a now
wharf near tho new Iron works. If tho
improvements wero not made the
money would not bo expended.
Bond Question Discussed,
Mr. Jones thought they should keep
in view tho bill for tho Tcriltory of
Hawaii, perhaps at that hour being
finally voted upon by Congress. Ac
cording to that bill they could not ap
propriate more than $1. 61)9,000 over tho
revenues for tho previous period. It
was not safo to mako estimates on tho
basis of 100 per cent Incroasj of taxes
predicted by Mr. Gear tho previous day.
Mr. Gear ngrccd that thu bill should
bo kept within tho bounds ot loan
funds available, but thought tho other
nppproprlatlon hills did not enter Into
".",l"".l,V.w"u" '""?.": ""V. "'V .'.." V
and If Hi emonoy woro not tlu'ro It
could not bo expended,
Mr. Damon stnted that nil tho unis
sued bonds amounted to $701,000 and,
In answer to Mr. Jones, said If Presi
dent McKInley approved of this Act
ho thereby sanctioned tho snlu of tho
bonds. Replying to Mr. Gear ho Raid
that somo addition might be mado to
tho 1799,000 when all nccounts under
tho loan fund were balanced.
Mr. Jones felt that thoy wero nafe
In voting all tho amounts lecommend
ed by tho committee from tho provi
sion In tho territorial bill to which
he had alluded..
Mr. Gear then flndlug tho question
cleared up moved to pass tho Item as
recommended by tho committee. It
was a matter of expending money If
tho funds wero available.
