This is an npp'ication liy IT. IT. Cha. Knnaina.
for the irobjUi nf the will ol Her late lTii;buea
M. Kekuuiu jut, IVuoiier, ollno: : that taiti will
was destroyed after her dejtlt, aud praying that
it be established upon proof of its cutttenu. It
is proved that Her Highness died on the 7th of
Juue I8afi.lbat Flie Ml un only kjii Williutn
named yonng chieTs or their enarjinns, without
objection by the others or their sarmorj.
It may bfi objected to. however, that this H a
proceeding merely to admit a will to probata, not
to determine the right of property under it, bat
I consider the restrict hn$ and terms of a will as
fair matter of comment apon the question of the
proof of a lost will, for if they are absard in them
selves, it is a fair inference that they were not in
the will. For instance, further, the right assumed
by the testator, as claimed in the will propounded,
to devise as her own, the property confessedly
another's, as the properly of Kuikioewa to Lot.
is certainly absurd when it is cluimeJ to hare any
Reference, however, to Hawaiian history will
show us that such ' kauotras " or directions made
by a High chief in the expectation of death were
highly regarded, and as in the nature of. advice,
which were given effect according a? the King
after discussion with the chiefs, considered the
instructions !o be rsasonuou. and sach a " kauo-
ba " was equally regarded whether purely oral or
reduced to writing.
I'bis leads me to a point made by the counsel
who died in 1S74. devising bis property to the
petitioner, his father. The following is the will
sought to be established as propounded in the pe
1. 1 bequeath alt the estate, formerly of Kai
kioews to Moses, son of ICinau and Rekuanaoa.
2. 1 bequeath all lite estate lormerly of lloa
pilikaue, to Lot, son of Kinac and Kt-kuanaoa.
3. The estate ot Kiuuu is to go to Victoria
Kamatualu, the duughter of Kinau and Kekua
naoa. 4. I bequeath all my own estate held in my
own right to my own son Lunulilo.
5. That if Moses or Lot should die belore
Victoria Ivuniamaiu, then she shall inherit their
fi. That if Lunalilo should die first, then the
children uf Kniau ahali inherit his property.
7. That if Moses, Lot and Victoria Kama-
malu, should die before Lunalilo. then ho shall in
herit all their property hereby bequeathed.
8. T hat Alex mder Libuliho, son of Kinau
and Kekuanaoa was to tuke nothing as he was to
inherit tho throue.
Four witnesses have been examined to estab
lish this will, viz. : Auwai, Kiltuahe, Kumaipuu-
paa ( ) and S. M. Kamakau. Hie three former
claim to have been present at its execution ; but
before considering their teilimotty. it is neces
sary to examine the principles of law applicable
to the proof of lost wills.
It is laid down by .Swinburne and a loptcd by
later text writers ' Hut if a testament be mule
in wntiug. and aftcrw irds lost by soma casualty,
if there b? two unexceptionable wiluesses vajio
did see and read the instrument written, and do
remember the contents theruol, the two witnesses
so deposing to the tenor of the will, aro sufficient
for the prool thereof in form of law," und
In I, Wiilmma on Fxeeu'.ors, page 312, the fol
lowing comment is made : ' And. ut this day, it
is quite clear that the uouteuts or s iOstauce ol a
testamentary i nstrumeul insy be thus established,
though the instrument itself asaaaot be produced,
upon sutialuctory proof being given that the in
ItTQaMOt was duly inude by the testator, and was
Churlas Lunalilo, who became King in 187.1. and f,)r e conlejiati that is. lhat if it be admitted
that the contents of the will urn shown, this will
has been already proved by a court of competent
jurisdiction, as it was presented to the Legisla
tive Council in 184.. and us testified to by Kam
akau "its provisions were carried out which
corresponds to what is now known as admitting
a will to probate.
The law on the subject was the act of 24th of
April, 1841, " Respecting parental duties."
' When he (the parent) dies, the heir ehull ex
hibit the will to the King, and if the Supreme
Judges perceive there was a real fault in the will
they shall correct it," &c.
The Supreme .fudges were, by the constitution
of October 8th, 1840. the King, the Premier, and
four peisons chosen by the Representatives, but
I find that in 184o, M. Kekuauuoa. then Govern
or ot Oahu. and Judge ol the Court of Uahu. ad-
milted wills to probate. (Vide Polynesian,
1815. proof of will of Thomas Prutt.)
It is my opinion that this kauoha or Kekau
luohi was not regarded as having any effect ns u
testament, except so far as it left her own prop
erly to Lunalilo and it was unnecessary for this
purpose, lor Bhe bad but one sou and heir, Luna
lilo, and it could have no effect, ollior than as
good advice, ill passing the lands of Kinau to
Victoria, or those of lloapilikane to Lot, &c.
ll was not "strictly admitted to probaie." in
the Legislative Council uf chiefs as contended for.
but il was discussed there, and curried into ef
fect so far as was deemed advisable, that is, the
sentiment prevailed lhat the ynnng chiefs men
tioned should inherit tiie lands from their respect
ive parents und foster parents ns iudiculed.
In otic tense, however, it was uJmitted io pro
bate, for the only judicial action uecesesry to be
taken upon it was taken, and 1 fail to find any
thing in the whole transaction lhat bears out the
idea that this kauoha had the entailing clauses
in it. ns propounded in the petition; but if il did
contain them, the King and council set them
aside, for these were never carried out.
T hat the Legislative Council did settle or take

The I blowing is the note to Hedfield on the
law of wills, p. 313. Tho practice of the Amer
ican courts, of receiving parol evidence of the
contents ot a lost will, eeuuis to be uuiversul. and
without question, notwithstanding the stringent
statute r quireiiients in regard to thu mode of ex
ecuting wit!?, and u lost will may bo established
by the testimony ol a single witness, notwith
standing the statute requires the execution to iho
presence of two or more. But this evidence must
come from witnesses who have read the will and
whose recollection, of ils contents is trustwor
thy." In Havis et aL, vs. Sigourney, 8 Met. 489,
Wilde J. soys : " To authorize tho probate of a
lost will by parol proof of its contents, depend
ing upon the recollection of witnesses, the evi
dence must he strong, positive, and free from all
doubt. Courts are bound to consider such evi
dence with great caution, und they cunnnt act on
probabilities." In this cose the witness wus the
Attorney who drafted tbe.wiil, but as he could
not testify with absolute certainty as to some
parts ol it, the Court refused to establish it.
None of the witnesses produced in this case at
bar. erer read the will. Auwai savs he heard the
King read it before signing it ; Kilinahe says hlu
luwailehua rend it. and he also says that the King
read it ; and S. M. Knmak'uu says that he heaid
it rend in the Legislative Council after iho Pre
mier's death ; Kainaipunpaa says she heard it
read in the presence of the testator. A strict
ruling would (ully justify tho refusal of the pro
bate of thu will on the ground suggested, that is,
that no one witness testifies from actual recojlec
tion of its contents ; but from recollection ol
what was said to be its contents by the reader.
The lad. however, that the King was the reader

Auwai says the will was mado one month be
fore Kekauluohi died, aud that it was signed three
or four days before liar death in the presence of
the King, John Yoang. and the young chiefs who
wero sent for Irom school, and that Kameharaoba
III. and John Voung then signed it.
Kilinahe says the young chiefs were not pres
ent, and that the King and Mr. Young sigoed it
a few days after the testator signed it, and that
she died a few weeks after eiguing it ; Auwai,
Kilinuhe, and Knmnkan agree lhat the will left
the property of Koikioewu to Moses, the prop
erty of Hoapil;katie to Lot, and her own property
to her son Lunalilo; Auwai and Kilinahe agree j
that the will left the property of Kinau to Victo- I
ria, and Kamakau says lhat it left I he estate of
her own lomily to Victoria and Lunulilo. lhat is !
that Lunalilo and icloria were to divide the

that tho attention of the learned justice was
called to this point, or he would cot have thus
practically set aside an award of the Land Com

says that the will directed as follows : " Regard
ing Moses, Lot and Victoria, if either ol them die
the others were to inherit, and if Lunalilo died
first they Were to inherit '' He adds that when
Kaniebameha III. came in, " Kekauluohi told
him. that if Moses, Lot aud Victoria died, then
LuDulilo wus to inherit," but bo does not assert i
that the will contained these words.
Kilinahe says the will provided ,hat if either
Moses, Lot or Victoria died, (hen each wonld in

lilo he would inherit all; il Lunalilo died first,
they wculd inherit.
Kamrikati says that if any one (ol the four)
died, the others would inherit. If nit but one
died ho would inherit.

Over thirty years have elapsed since the al
leged transaction ; every one of the parlies men
tioned and interested in the will propounded
have passed away from earth. As a matter of
fact the land Commission, which was organized

lauus ui cvaiaioewa, vo lam, iue lands ol tloapi

Lunalilo the lands ol Kekauluohi ; and they were
awarded by distinct titles to the different indi
viduals and " their heirs and assigns," and with
no limitation over to the survivor or survivors, as
sought to be established by the will. Such a
limitation of entailing of these vast estates would
be inconsistent with the right of alienation, a
right, however, freely enjoyed by all of the above
buuudaries set forth in the Laud Commission sur
vey, ta set forth in ihe said Rival patent, and
that the dofendant do pay to the plaintiff for the
said land, at the rate of one hundred and ninety
fire dollars per acre, deducting the area taken for

of Mr. Curtis J. Lyons. .60 of an acre, to wit. :

States shall receive satisfactory evidence lhat the
Legislature of the Hawaiian Islands have passed
laws on their part to give full effect to the pro
visions ol the Convention between the United
Stales and his Majesty the King of the Hawaiian
Islands, signed on iho l.'Uli day of January, 187o,
he isjkuihonzed to issue bis proclamation declaring
that he has such evidence ; aud thereupon, from
the date of such proelam itton, the following arti
cles, being the growth und m.uiul.iclure or pro
duce of the Hawaiian Islands, to wit : arrowroot,
castor oil, bananas, nuts, vegetables, dried and
uudriod. preserved and unpreservod, hides'unl
skins, undressed, rice, pulu, seeds, plants, shrubs
or trees, muscovado, urown and all other . r -fined
sngar, meaning hereby the grudes of sugar
heretofore commonly imported from the Hawai
ian Islands, and now known io the markets of
San Francisco and Portland as "Sandwich Is
land sugar," syrups of sugar cane, melado and
molasses, tallow, shall be introduced into the
United Sla'.es free uf duly so lorg as the said
convention ehull remuin in force,
Thu committee gives tbo figures to show that
j already there is a large trade between the Islands
and Australian aud New Zealand ports, which
i latter are struggling for a monopoly of tte sugar
j trade with Huwaii, now that the sugar supply of
' the Mauritius is rapidly declining. The Kritish
I (iovernment and people are ever on Die alert to
j i lcreaso th-dr commercial advantages ; and in the
absence of the commercial relations under this
treaty the United Slates may louse its trade with
I the Islands, and from thu necessities of the case,
j must make u commercial treaty with soineconn-
try. Under this treaty the United States will have
the carrying trade, as the Islanders have no large
The treaty provides that ' no export duty or
j charges shall be imposed " by either Covernment
i on the articles euumciutod above. And " it is
agreed op the purl ot His I luc: iii.in Majesty,
says the treaty, " that so long as this treaty shall
remain in force, he will not lease or otherwise
dispose of or create a lien upon any porl, or oth
or territory in his dominion, or granl any special
rights of use therein, to any other power, State
I or Government, nor make uny treaty by which
any other nation shall obtain the same privilege,
relative to the admission of any articles free of
duty, hereby secured to the United States.
It is upon this clause that the committee lay
the greatest stress. Il makes Iho United Stales
the favored nation to iho exclusion by discrim
inating duties of all others not commercially
only, but politically as well. '' T he geographical
position of the Hawaiian Islands," says the com
mittee, " their relation to our Pacific coast and
to the countries adjacent to me Pacific ocean,
their history, area, und capabilities of production,
the character of their harbors and their com
merce, the present and fulnro commerce of the
i ocean wnich surrounds thorn, ibo problem us to
their futnro pohttc.il status, together with the
certainly that Ihey cannot maintain autonomy or
hold their place us a separate nation and not 1 e
como absorbed by aomo other power, aro to be
considered in determining the question as to the
policy ot making '.his treaty."
For over 3.7 years the importance of those iV
nnds geographically and politically has been ap
parent to our (Iovernment. VVebfter when Sec
retary of State, declared that iho Government i f
tho United States would look with displeasure
upon any effort by any other (Iovernment lo ac
quire any preponderating influence over these
islands, and as to tho iotimation that the French
contemplated taking possession of them, he
trnsted they would not. " but thoy would be di3
lodged if it took Ihe wholo power of this Govern
ment to do it if bis advice were taken." Marcy
and Seward contemplated the possibility of such
a treaty as this with favor as did many others
of the leading statesmen of the country, and many
administrations. Tho Oregon Legislature, the
San Francisco Chamber of Commerce, and the
Boston Board ol Vade, ditto. The committee
quote from Sewarda' speech Jurvis' history, the
admissions of the London Tim s, the writings of
Sir George Simpson, Admiral Porter, Admiral
Reynolds, General SchofieM and even from a re
cent " speech from iho throne, to show the im
portance ol these islands to us. From these va
rious sources it npp6ara, in brief, that tho P.icific
ocean, its shores, its islands, and the vast region
beyond is to become " the chief theatre of events
in the world's grert hereafter ;" that the commerce
between the Pacific Stales with Asia and Aus
tralia will ere long become enormous ; " that the
maritime power wbich'holdi Pearl river harbor,
and moves her fleet there, holds also the key of
the North Pacific :" lhat if the British could se
cure control of the Islands, " the British Navy
could draw a line from British Columbia lo Aus
tralia, completely held ugainstour nation, and the
Pucific Coast States would be defenceless ;" that
the recent acquisition by Great Britain of tho 22$
Fiji Islands, has " giveD important maritime ad
vantages " to the British Sects in the Pac.Bc
and the Hawaiian islands constitnte " Ibe onlv
intorrupiioa to the chief control '' hy the British
of those waters. The oomiuitteo declare em
phatically that :
The Paeifie oekan is an Amerioin oaaaa. dwtined
to hold a far higher plaee in tba future history of the
world than the Atlantic. It is the future goat high
way between ourselves and the handreds of million,
of Afixtiss who look to as far ocmmeraa, eiviliaation ,
and Cbriitiaaitj. The islands rast between ns and
theia as the necessary- post provided by the Ureal Ri
ler of the universe, a. poiats of observation, rest,
apply, military strategy and command, to enable
each other to unite ia protecting both hemispheres
from Earopaaa assantt, aggression and avarice.
Kelley of 'Pennsylvania, will fight the bill
tooth and nail in the House, and, jadgiag from
the previous opposition to the treaty in the Sen
ate whero he was beaten by 51 to 12 Senator
Booth will antagonize it in the latter body. But
there is not a doubt that the bill will pass both
bouses. '7. Caktoi-
