In the mailer of the JEstait of 3foln, (iT.,)o
This matter came op on petition filed by
Mahoe, tbe duly appointed Administrator of said
Estate, before Jastico Widemann, praying tbat a
day and an hoar may be appointed for the pre
sentation of his accounts, and tbat be be dis
charged from the responsibilities of the adminis
tration aforesaid. Order was thereupon issned
on the 13th of April, 1870, fixing the 19th day
of May, lor tbe hearing of this petition, in
the Conrt House at Ilonolula, and giving nolico
to all interested in said Estate to appear and
show cause, if any they hare, why the said
accounts ebonld not be passed, and tbe said
Administrator be discharged from all farther re
sponsibility in this matter. Notice of this to be
given in tbe Ks Au Oeoa Newspaper for tbreo
weeks previous to said hearing-.
Kahua, (w.,) appeared as contestant.
The evidence of the witness Kulaipahu, (vr)
on behalf of tbe contestant, Xahua, is that
Kauhina (k.) and Xapeba (w.,) were the grand
parents of Mokn, deceased, and Xabnna, (w.,)
contestant ; tbat they had two daughters, Kapo,
tbe mother of Xahua, and Xawaapukana, tbo
mother of Moku, deceased; that witness knew
Kauhina and Xapeba, and tbat sho knew when
these two daughters Kapo and Xawaapukana,-
were born ; that Kauhina and Xapeba bad no
otber children, that witness knew them well
tbat she lived tri'; them at Ewa. The evidence
of the witness Keahiahi, (w.,) also for contestant
Xahua, shows exactly tbe same relationship, and
further tbat Kauhina and Xapeba bad a son
after Xawaapukana, the second daughter. Tbo
witness Kekuabi (w.,) only states that Mokn
deceased, was in the habit of calling Xahua
Tbe witness Ilaapu, (k.,) for tbe Administra-
tor, states tbat witness bos lived all his life
at Ewa and knew JUhoo living with his
mother Knwaakaubola at Ewa from childhood.
Oilikaheakulani (k.,) and Knabino (w.,) had tbreo
daughters : Kawaakauhola,thu mother of Mahoe
Puukaua and Opunui.
The evidence of Kaoi, for the Administrator,
is tbat Oilikaheakulani and Kuahine (whom
witness did not personally know,) had three
daughters, Kawaakanhola, Paukaaa and Opunui,
and ono son, Keaona. All these foar lived in
Koolan, and Opunui afterwards went to live at
Mokaleia. That Kawaakaubola wo3 tbe mother
of Maboe; I'uukaua, the mother of Mokn, de
ceased, and Opunui, tbe mother of Uka.
It appears further from the evidence given by
the same witness, Kaoi, at tbe hearing of tbe
petition for the granting of letters of admioistra
tion upon the Estate of Mokn, deceased, to Ma
boe, tbe petitioner, tbat Uka, tbe son of Opunui,
and cousin of Maboe, was present in court.
Tbe Court, after weighing tbe evidence, ordered
tnat Mahoe wa3 entitled to the remainder of the
From this decision, Xahua appealed to tho
Supreme Court in I!anco.
Xo further evidence wa3 produced, and tbe
case was submitted without argument.
K. (j. Davis for the Appellant.
S. B. Dole for the Administrator.
OPIXIOX OF THE COORT, BY HARTWELL, J,
Appeal from the decision of Mr. Justice Wide-
raann in refusing to order Mahoe. Administrator
of tbe estate of Moka, deceased, on hearing for
allowance of his administration accounts and dis
cbarge 03 Administrator, to pay over the property
remaining in his hands to the appellant, Xahua,
claiming to be entitled thereto as heir.
Xo order wo3 nude upon the accounts and

call for a decree of final distribution. Tbe Ap

the validity of Xahua's claim. Of this there
was conflicting evidence, but we think there was
sufficient evidence to sustain the finding of tbe

It may be observed that Maboe did not fil

The St. Croix and Lake Superior railroad bill
was up for discussion on Friday. Proctor Knott
had tbe floor, and in tbe following speech, which.
by all reports, was tbe richest and raciest heard
in Congress for years, be gives ns bis impressions
about Dululb, the proposed terminus for tbe biz
job now before tbe House :
Hence, as I bare said, sir, I was utterly at a
loss to determine where tbe terminus of this
great and indespensible road should be until I ac
cidentally overheard some gentlemen the otber
day mention tbe came of "Dnlalb." Great
laughter. Dnluthl Tbe word fell upon my ear
witb peculiar and indescribable charm, like the
gentle murmur of a low fountain stealing forth in
the midst of roses, or the soft, sweet accents of
an angel's witper in tbe bright, joyous dream of
sleeping innocecse. Duluthl Twos tbe name
for which my bob! bad, panted for years, aa tbe

But where was Bnlnth 7 Never, in my limited

was certain the draughtsman of this bill had
never beard of it, or it would have been desig
nated" as one of tbe termini of this road. 1 ask
ed my friends about it, but they knew nothing of
it. I rushed to tho Library and examined all tho
maps I could End. Laughter. 1 discovered in
one of them a delicate, hair-like line, diverging
from the Mississippi near a place marked Pres
cott, which I supposed was intended to represent
the river St. Croix, but I could nowhere find
Nevertheless; I was confident it existed some
where, and that its discovery would constitute
the crowning glory or the present century, if not
of all modern time.. Laughter. I knew it
was bound to exist In the very nature of things;
tbat the symmetry and perfection of our plane
tary system would be incomplete without it,
renewed laughter; that the elements of materi
al nature would long since have resolved them
selves back into original chaos if there had been
such a hiatus in creation as would havo resulted
from leaving out Duluth. Roars of laughter.
In fact, sir, I was overwhelmed with tho con
viction tbat Duluth not only existed somewhere,
but tbat wherever it was, it was a great and glo
rious place. I was convinced that the greatest
calamity that ever befell tbe benighted nations of
tho ancient world was in their having passed
away without a knowledge of the actual exist
ence of Duluth; that their fabled Atlantis, never
seen savo by the hallowed vision of inspired
poesy, was, in fact, but another name for Duluth;
tbat tbe golden orchard of the Hesperides was
but a poetical synonym for tbo beer-gardens in
the vicinity of Dulatb. Great laughter. I
was certain tbat Herodotus had died a misera
ble death because in all his travels and with all
his geographical research be bad never beard o
Duluth. Laughter. I knew that if tho im.
mortal spirit of Homer could look down from an
other heaven than tbat created by his own celes
tial genius upon tbe long lines of pilgrims from
every cation of tho earth to the gashing fountain
of poesy opened by the touch of bis magic wand;
if be could bo permitted to behold the vast as
semblage of grand and glorious productions of
lyric art called into being by Lis own inspired
strains, be would weep tears or bitter anguish
that instead of lavishing all tbe stores of bis
mighty genius upon tbe fall of llion it bad not
been his more blessed lot to crystallizo in death
less song tbe rising glories of Duluth. Great
and continued laughter.
Yet, sir, had it not been for this map, kindly
furnished me by tho Legislature of Minnesota, I
might have gone down to my obscure and hum
ble grave in an agony of despair, because I could
nowhere find Dulatb. Renewed laughter. Had
such been my melancholy fate, I have co doubt
tbat with tbe last feeblo pulsation of my break
ing heart, witb tbe last faint oxbaltation of my"
fleeting-breath, I should have wispered, " Where
is Duluth?" Roars of laughter.
But, thanks to tbe beneficence of that land of
ministering angels who have their bright abodes
in the- far-off capital of Minnesota, just as tbe
agony of my anxiety wa3 about to culminate in
the frenzy of despair, this blessed map was placed
in my hands ; and as I unfolded it a resplendent
scene of ineffable glory opened before me, such
as 1 imagine burst upon tho enraptured vision of
tbe wandering Peri through the opening gates of
paradise. Renewed laughter. There, there
for tbe Er3t time, my enchanted eye rested upon
the ravishing word "Duluth."
This map, sir, is intended, as it appears from
it3 title, to illustrate tbe position of Duluth in
tbe United States ; but if gentlemen will examine
it, I think they will concur with mo in tbe opin
tbat it is far too modest in its pretentions. It
not only illustrates the position of Duluth in tbe
United States, but exhibits its relations with all
created things. It even goes further than this.
It lifts the shadowy veil of futurity and affords
us a view of the golden prospects of Duluth far
along the dim vista of ages to come.
If gentlemen will examino it thoy will find
Duluth not only in tbe centre of tbe map, bat
represented in tho centre of a series of concent
ric circles one hundred miles apart, and somo of
them as much as four thousand miles in diameter,
embracing alike in tbeir tremendous sweep tbe
fragrant savannas of the sun-lit South and eter
nal solitudes of snow that mantle the ice-bonnd
Xortb. Laughter. How these circles were
produced is perhaps one of thoso primordial mys
teries that the most skillful paleologist will never
be able to explain. Renewed laughter. But
the fact is, sir, Dulutb is pre-eminently a central
place, for I am told by gentlemen who have been
30 reckless of tbeir own personal safety as to
venture away into those awful regions where
Duluth 13 supposed to bo tbat it is so exactly in
tba centre of the risible nnirerso that tbo sky
comes down at precisely tba same distance all
around it. Roars of laughter.
I find by reference to this map that Dulatb is
situated somewhf re near tba western end of Lake
Superior, but as there is no dot or other mark in
dicasing its exact location I am unable to say
whether it is actually confined to any particular
spot, or whether" it u just lying around there
loose." Renewed laughter. I really cannot
tell whether it is one of those eternal creations
of intellectual frost-work, mora Intangible than
tbe rose-tinted clouds of a summer sun-set; one
of those airy exhalations of the speculator's
brain, which I am told are ever flitting in tho
form of towns and cities along these lines of
railroad, built with Government subsidies, luring
unwary settlers as tbe mirage of tbe desert lures
tbe famishing traveller on, and ever on, until it
fades away in tbe darkening horizon, or whether
it is a realr&ona file, substantial city, all " staked
off," witb tbe lots all marked with their owner's
names, like tbat proud commercial metropolis re
cently discovered on desirable shores of San Do
mingo. Laughter. But, however tbat may be,
I am satisfied that Dulutb is there, or thereabout,
for I see it stated here on this map tbat it Is ex
actly thirty nine hundred and ninety miles from
Liverpool, laughter; thoozh I bare do doubt,
for tbe sake of convenience, it will be moved
back ten miles, so as to make the distance an
even four thousand. Renewed laughter.

I see it represented on this nap thai Duluth S
situated half way between Paris and Venice, so
that gentlemen who have 'inhaled tho exhilerat-
ing airs of one or basked in tba golden sunlight
of the other, may .see at a glance that Dulatb,
must bo a place of untold delight, laughter, a
terrestial paradise, fanned by the balmy zephyrs
of an eternal spring, clothed in the gorgeous
sheen of ever-blooming Sowers, and vocal with
tho silvery melody of natures choicest songsters.
Laughter. In fact, sir, since I hare seen this
map I have no doubt that Byron was vainly en
deavoring to convey soma faint conception of
tbo dellicions charms of Dulutb, when his poetic
spirit gushed forth in the rippling strains of that

incongruous, as rather too great a strain on tha
"blankets"' of veracity. But to my.mind there
is no difficulty in the matter whatever. The)
phenomenon is very easily accounted for. It is
evident, sir, tbat tbe Picgans sowed that wheat
there and plowed it with buffalo bulls. Great
laughter. Xow, sir, this fortunate combination
of buffaloes and Piegans, considering their rela
tive position to each other and to Dulatb, as
they uro arranged on this map, satisfies me
that Duluth is destined to be tbe beef market of

Great laughter. I think I see them cow, sir,

tongues out, and tbeir tails curled over their
backs, tearing down towards Dulutb, with about

that no patriotic Representative of tbe American

Tbe higher we ascend Ina tho earth, tha
