J. NOTT Co. vs. KANAHELE. of
Appeal from Circuit Judge Lvman, of the Third
' Judicial Circuit.
Opinion by Harris, C. J., and McCnlly, J.
Ab Ibis easels presented to me, it seems to
me to have an ingredient wbich makes it differ
estentfally from the case of tie owners or ' the
Wmbee Plantation vs. Kalapu." In that case
ibe contract was in the ordinary form, but in
this case, the contract las an extraordinary
clause put into it, to tbe rffect that thedefend.
ant " in case of the transfer of the Waiobinu
Plantation " will work for the persons to whom
such plantation shall lie conveyed. That is to
say that the delendant voluntarily contracted in
with the plaintiff that he would work not only
lor him, the plaintiff, but in case the plantation
ebould be so'd, Da would work for whomsoever
should become the purchaser. Now it seems to
me that this contract of the defendant's became
an essential part of tbe consideration between
Messrs. Xott & Co., and Mr. Hutchinson. The
defendant voluntarily entered Into the contract,
not illegal "in ilself, and cannot complain that he
is required to keep that contract. Mr.
has entered into his bargain with Messrs.
Xott &. Co., in tiew of the defendant's contract
to labor and has a right to call npon Messrs.
Xott & Co., to enforce their contract with the
defendant and does so call upon them, and would
be entitled to damages against tbem, if they did
not make every effort to enforce the contract.
In this view of the case, the defendant would,
if he continued to labor, be laboring for Nott
& Co. They are the real and not fictitious
plaintiffs in tho case, are directly interested and
it is their duly to compel tbe defendant to perform
tbe contract in terms wbich he has voluntarily
undertaken to perform.
There is in this case no attempt to evade the
law or to make the contract assume any form
which was not contemplated npon its very race
and wbich the defendant did not fully understand
at the lime of signing the contract.
For tbese reasons 1 am of the opinion that the
judgment of the Iucal circuit judge should be reverted,
and that of the district justice should be
affirmed. Ciias. C. Harris,
I concur, Lawrence McCci.lv,
Second Associate Justice.
Honolulu, September 20, 1877.
Dissenting opinion of Judd, J.
On the 1st November, 187G, Kanahele, the defendant,
bouud uimself by a .written contract to
eerve J. Xott k Co., tbe plaintiffs, for a term of
forty-eight months. The language of defend-ant's
engagement is as follows :
"Tbal.1, Kanahele, agree to labor for J. Nott
& Co., or their agents, and for their heirs, executors
and administrators, and or for their assigns,
in case of the transfer of the "Waiobinu
Plantation, for the term of forty-eight months,
from the 2nd day of November, A. D. 1876, ot
such labor and in such place as they or their
agents, or their heirs and assigns, as aforesaid,
may direct, diligently and faithfully, and without
deserting their service. And it is understood
that tbe " month'' spoken of above is to consist
of twenty-six days of actual labor."
On the 28ih of February, 1877, J. Nott & Co.
executed an agreement with Alexander Hutchinson
by which they agreed to sell tbe "
Plantation" to said Hutchinson for the sum
of 17,000, he agreeing to pay 35,000 cash, aud
the balance in three, six and twelve months ;
Nott & Co., on receiving tbe full sum of S17.000,
to executo and delirerto Hutchinson a good and
sufficient deed for the said property.
A power of uttoruey was also given by Nott
& Co. to Hutchinson to conduct the said plantation,
and to direct and control the laborers' engaged
llutcbmson took: possession or the plantation,
and says in bis evidence taken by Judge Lyman,
" tbe crop of cane to be ground this year is to
belong to me. I am not accountable to J. Nott
& Co. for the management of tbe place or for
any losses or profits of the place or for any of its
Kanahele refused 'to work on tho plantation,
alleging that it bad been sold and that his contract
was thereby annulled. He was arrested
under the law authorizing it, fined by tbe District
Justice, and appealed to tbe Circuit Judge,
who reversed tbe decision of the District Justico
and ordered judgment for the defendant: where
upon an appeal was taken to the Supreme Court
The statute nnder which this contract was
made, reads as follows : Section 1417, " Any
person who has attained the age of twenty years
may bind himself or herself, by written contract,
to serve another in any art, trade, profession, or
other employment, for any term not exceeding
five years." Subsequent sections and amendments
thereto give the employer the right to enforce
such contracts, by an appeal to the Courts,
who aie authorized to fine the laborer for wilful
In so far sb the labor laws of this country authorize
the Court to punish a laborer for dereliction
of doty, by a fine and in default of his paying
it by imprisonment at bard labor, they are in
derogation of the common law, end being penal
laws snoum oe construed Btnctly.
The words of section 1417 above qnotod,
" Any person may bind himself to
serve another," means that he may bind himself
to serve an individual who is ascertained and
known to the laborer at the time of making his
contract, or who could be ascertained by the
laborer if he made inquiry.
This section does not authorize a man to make
a contract to serre one who is wholly unascertained,
or who is to be ascertained independently
of the servant's will.
The policy of our institutions and laws forbids
the making of such contracts.
Section 1424 of the Civil Code recognizes this
principle so far as to say that no contract of service
made in pursuance of Sections 1417 and
1418, should bind the servant after tbe death of
; that is, he cannot be held to work
for tbe heir, executor, or administrator of bis
master. This last quoted section continues,
" provided, however, that where servants shall
be so bound by any company of individuals, tbe
death of any one partner, or tho change of partners,
in such company, shall not operate or release
such servant from tho terms of his contract."
On the principle above stated, at common law.
a death of one of a copartnership or change of
partners (either of which would operate as a dissolution
of tbe copartnership) would release tbe
servant. "Were it not for this statute, the servant
could plead successfully, upon such a change
occurring, that his consent to serve nnder tbe
new conditions was essential to the binding effect
of the contract.
This Court, in the case of the owner of the
Wnihee Plantation vs. Kalapu, January Term.
lb ii, has construed this section to mean " that
whatever-changes may take place in tbe original
firm employing the laborer, tbe contract continues
to bo binding so long as one of tbe original
members remain in the firm, to whom the
laborer can look for the payment ot bis wages,
for directions as to his labor and for humane
treatment, all bf which were the considerations
which induced him to enter into the contract."
But there is no enactment of the Legislature
that will compel a man to work for another or
In the case last referred to, tho Court Bay that
" this is an attempt to assign a contract which is
in itself unassignable."
If this expression is, in that case considered
to be obiter didum, I am willing to repeat as
law in this cose ; these contracts are not assignable
; for if a nan could be passed from oneto
another like a chattel by an assignment of his
contract, it redness him at onee.to a chattel, and
jl3,!?:"?i,P)rnl of, involuntary eerrilnde which,
though for a limited period, is, nevertheless, re
pugnant to the policy of our institutions and forbidden
by Article XI. of the Constitution".
But it is said that the laborer Kanahele in the
case at bar, bos agreed in bis contract to work
for tho assigns of J. Nott & Co. The words
are : ' and or for their assigns in caso of the
transfer of the Waiohinu Plantation."
If a contract, that is. an agreement by which
one person binds himself to serve another, is in
essence and nature unass'guable, the law
will not allow a laborer to make a contract which
in its terms assignable. He cannot make an
engagement which is illegal und inconsistent
wilh tbe liberty which every nun has of choosing
bis own employer. He may not so barter
away his freedom in advance, though nis consent
may be sought and obtained to serve tbe assignee
the plantation when ho is ascertained.
But it is urged by the plaintiff that in this
cate there is no assignment of the contract.
It is true that this contract is not formally endorsed
over or assigned by apt words, and it is
true that the name of J. Nott & Co., tho original
employers, is used as the plaiutiffin this suit.
But it is equally clear by the agreement of sale
and the evidence in this case that J. Xolt& Co.
have no further interest in the labor of this respondent,
except, as was suggested at the trial,
that they may have obtained an enhanced price
for their property on the understanding that the
laborers bound to them at the time of their
agreement could be held to labor on tbe plantation
after its sale. There"- is, however, nothing
tbe papers to show what part of tbe consideration
of sale, if any, the vulue of tbese labor contracts
constituted, nor is it at all clear that
Hulchinson could secure an abatement ot the
purchase money in the event of the law not allowing
him to compel the services of tbese men.
It is not to be presumed that an illegal consideration
entered into this agreement of sale,
nor that tbese parties contracted for a transler
of tho men with the plantation. But Mr.
Hutchinson says that ' the crop of this year is
his ; that he is not accountable to J. Nott & Co.
for the management of the place or for any of its
losses or profits, or for any of itS proceeds.' He
istheoolyone interested directly or indirectly
in the labor of respondent. The service in
which it is sought to bold the respondent is that
of Hutchinson and not that of J. Nott Co.
To iny mind it is no answer to say that J. Nott
& Co. are responsible, 1 be laborer can have
practically no redress against them except upon
a suit for damages in casu of misusage or viola
tion ot the terms of the labor coutract. It would
be idle for the laborer to seek from J. Noll &
Co. modifications of the character of the work,
or a change of the rules of the plantation which
vary widely on each estate, or the dismissal, for
example, or an inhuman overseer, when the position
is insisted on by Mr. Hutchinson that be
is " not accountable to J. Nolt & Co. for the
management of the place."
Although tbe title in the Waiohinu Plantation
is still in J. Nott Co., tbe possession of
tbe place is in Hutchinson. It is now his
He is tbe virtual proprietor of tbe plantation
so far as third parties are concerned.' the
virtual assignee of the business, ifuot of the
labor-contract of the respondent. To say that
Hntchinson is not the virtual assignee either of
the plantation or of ibe labor-contract, when be
13 the only one actually aaii visibly enjoying
its proceeds and results and responsible lor its
management, is to make a " distinction without
Practically Hntchinson is asking tbe Court to
say that the respondent shall be compelled to
work out for bis (Hutchinson's) benefit a contract
made between respondent and J. Nott
Co., and to which contract he is neither a party
nor a privy.
It is obvious that the ownership of tbe land is
not essential. An agreement might be made to
sell and convey tbe estate at some date in the
future, its possession and profits not passing
that date, which would not, in the least, affect
tbe contracts for labor.
It is quite true also that the agreement of
sale of this estate, even accompanied with immediate
possession does not of itself annul the con
tracts ol J. Nolt & Co., wiib the respondent.
An employer of labor does nothing to vitiate or
annul thu contracts of bis laborers by selling pait
of his estate, or tbe whole of it, or by purchasing
moro land or additional estates providing the
service in which he claims to hold bis laboreis
be still 7ns scrvico, and not the service of some
other person with whom tbe laborer did not contract.
But in deciding whether, as this is a personal
contract and the laborer is not bound to the
land as a serf, a laborer could be held to follow
the service of bis original employer whatever be
the changes in the character of the employment,
reference would have to be made to tbe terms of
tbe contract as to the place of labor and whether
the new employment differed so essentially
Irom the old as to its severity, hazafdous nature
or disagreeable conditions as to make it unjust
or unreasonable to couipel the laborer to perform
it for tbe same wages.
In saying that tbe contract for labor, being
one whoso obligations cannot be delegated nor
its advantages assigned is a personal one, I do
not say that in order to preserve its vitality, the
employer should actually reside on his estate, go
into the field with his men and personally direct
and supervise tbem. Though be may be an absentee
in a foreign land, tbe laborer chose him
as his master, knowing his character for fairness,
liberality and humanity ; knowing, too, the reputation
of tbe estate, as reflected from the proprietor,
as regards the methods of work, the
character of the overseers or whatever particular
circumstance induced him to enter his service ;
and to this master an appeal could always finally
be made for redress.
It is no answer to say that one master is as
good as another for tho laborer, providing he fulfill
all the written conditions of his contract and
observe whatever tho law commands, doing
nothing that is forbidden by it. Men are not
cast in tho same mold, and so long as differences
of disposition and character exist, jus. so long
some masters will be preferred to others, and tbe
laborer, if he is a free man ought to be allowed to
exercise bis right ofeboice.
Nothing need be said here to extenuate the
injustice done to the employer by bis losing the
money which he may have advanced to bis employee,
as wages, for which he has the right to
expect service in return. If he, by disposing of
his business to another, has placed himself in a
position in which he is no longer able to afford
employment to bfs laborers, he cannot complain
that they are not able to repay him tbe advance
or law will not compel them to work
oat the advance in the service of another.
But little light i3 shed upon this question
from the authorities. We are peculiarly situated.
Here capital seeks labor. In tbe countries
where the precedents of the common law are
formed labor seeks employment.
But it has frequently been decided that an apprentice
is not assignable. Hall el al vs. Gardner
et al 1 Ma&sT 172, Davis vs. Coburn 8 Maes.
In Clement vs. Clement 8 N. H. 473, the following
language is used by Richardson C. J. by
way of illustration ;
" There are cases, without doubt, where a contract
cannot be assigned, without tbe consent of
both parties. Instances of this kind may be
found, where young men contract to labor for
farmers by the month or'the year, and whero it
is noderstood that they are to labor on tbe farm,
live in tbe family and be nnder tbo directions of
In such cases these circumstances become a
part or the contract, andifaey are not bound to
labor on other farms, nnder tbe directions of
other persons, or to live in otber families, without
their consent." '
This language can well be appliod to the labor
contracts of this country.
After a deliberate consideration of this case,
I am of the opinion that for the reasons assigned,
the judgment of the. Circuit Judge should be affirmed.

The London World of August 1st, reprints
tbe following from a pamphlet entitled " Mac-Mahon."
"The Marshal rises at 6 o'clock
throughout tbe year. When np, he rings for
Francisco, his valet, an old African soldier,
who brings him a cup of black coffee. The Marshal
shaves himself ; then dresses, sometimes in
civilian and sometimes in military costume ; he
has a marked prelereuce for the latter, which
may be easily explained. He then descends to
his-study, and works there either with tbe Vis- .
count d'Hurcourt, his Secretary, or wilh his
aides-de-camp, until 11:30, except tbo day on
which Ministerial Councils takes placo. This
Council, at which the Marshal assiduously attends,
takes placo generally on Tuesday, Thursday
and Saturday at 10 o'clock. The Marshal
often receive? a few visitors :n tho morning. At
11:30 be breakfasts wilh his family, and this repast
is light and short. Tho Alncan sobriety of
ibe Marshal is well known. He slays a few
minutes wilh la Marechale and bis children, and
then returns to work for about another hour.
From 1 to 3 o'clock be receives the high functionaries
who wish to consult with him. The
members of tbe National Assembly and Prefects
are admitted without letters of audience ; persons
with these letters and subject to this formality
are also received at this time, as well as
Generals and superior officers. Tbe days on
nhich important riltings in the National Assembly
occur, the Marshal did not leave his room.
Every quarter of an hour dispatches are transmitted
to him, giving him an accurate account of each
phase of tbe discussion and of each incident
Other days ho goes out on horseback about 3
o'clock, aud frequently visit a camp, a bairacks,
or reviews a regiment. Sometimes he goes to a
hunt. He habitually returns about 5:30 and
then rapidly peruses the newspapers. The family
of tbe President again meet ,al table for dinner.
A few friends en petit comile, are admitted
on ordinary days. Thursdays are set apart
for official dinners and receptions.
A. Curious Problem,
" I must confess," says Aniens in tbe Sydnoy
Leader, " to haviug been puzzled by a seemingly
simple question that was put to me this week.
Supposing the Christians in all countries to
commence ringing their church bells al half-past
10 on Sunduy morning, according to the timo of
the lunglituda they are in, where do tbe bells
first start ? We commence before
tbe people of Adelaide, while in Sydney they are
before us. Tbe Wellington bells
are an hour and a half in advunce of those in
Sydney ; in fact. Lord Normauby is coming out
of church as Sir Hercules Robinson is going in.
Honolulu is more than nn hour and a half in
of Wellington, and San Franci6co two
hours and a half befora Honolulu. Going ronnd
the world in this way wo would make out tha.
they had Sunday morning 14 bonrs and 20 min.
before us in London, instead of, as is the fact,
our having it 9 hours and 40 minutes before
them. As wo sail round tbe world from West
to East every one knows that somewhere or
other we havo to sail into the day before, but the
question is where Joes the change, tako place ?
There must in short be some longlitudo on the
earth s sutuco where ono can travel from Sunday
morning back into Saturday, and on the return
journey back again into Sunday, in the course of
u walk between breakfast and dinner. Such a
position would suit admirably the numerous class
of Christians who desire to keep on good terms
with both God and Mammon. I would be obliged
to any astronomer or geographer who could
tell mo where to look for it."
The above problem has puzzled a great many
olber people, though the explanation is simple
enough end well understood by ull
men. It has been made tbe basis of several
works of fiction, of which Jules Verne's "Around
the World iu Eighty Days," is tbe most striking
recent instance. Among the prose works of
Edgar A. Poe will be found a very ingenious
story, tbe plot ol which turns on the same point.
It is called, wo think. "Three bunuays in Une
Modebm Economy of Timk. Tho Scientific
American thus shows how timo has been economized
by tho application of machinery :
One man can spin mora cotton yarn now than
400 men could havo done in the same time in
17C9, when Arkwright, the best cotton-spinner,
took out his first patent ; ono man can mako as
much flour in a day now as 150 could a century
ago ; one woman can now mako as much lace
in a day as 100 women could 100 years ago ; it
now requires ouly as many days to refine sugar
as it did months, 30 years ago ; It once required
six months to put quicksilver on a glass, now it
needs only 40 minutes . the engine of u firslrate
ironclad fiigate will perform as much work in a
day as 42 000 horses.
