REX rs. KA LAI LAO.
Juild am McUully, J. J.
' Opinion by Judd, J.
The defendant waa charged in tha Police
Court with the offense of " illicit cuhubitation,"
tu which be uttjected that it wu3 not an offense
defined bjr elulule. This objection was overruled
pro forma, and he appealed to the Supreme
Court in bunco.
In order to mi understanding of this ca;e, some
review of the legislation on this subject becumea
In the Penal Code of 1850, in chapter 'XIII,
appears the following section :
riecliou 5. ' A man and woman who not be
iii married to each other, lewdly associate and
cuhubit together, each lie punished by u
fine not exceeding odu hundred dollars, or imprisonment
at bard labor not more than oue
The lewdly associatinjj and cohabiting
uf i. inun atid woman not married to each
other, is here made an offense distinct from fornication.
The index uf this chapter calls this
otlense " Illicit Cohabitation."
Uu the 22nd of June, 1852, the Legislature
passed the following law :
" An Act to abolish tha law of Illicit Cohabitation.'
Whereas, the law relating to illicit cohabitation
is misunderstood by the District 'Justices,
and made the engine of
; Therefore, be it enacted by the Nobles
and ..Representatives of Ilia Uanaiian Islands. in
legislative Council assembled :
Section 1. "The fifth section of the 13th
chapter of the Penal Code, relating to illicit cohabitation
sluli be and is hereby repealed, und
such offense shall hereafter be punished as adultery."
On the 14ib February. 1859. the 13th chapter
of tbo Penal Code was amended by lessening the
punishment for adultery and furnicatiun ; and
again in 18C6, the Legislature passed an act
amending the law lelating to adultery anJ fornication,
ibis time increasing tbe punishments lor
In the compilation of the Penal Laws of this
Kingdom made in 1869, and adopted by the
Legislature in 1S7U, as the law of tbo land, we
find section 7 cf chapter 13 us follows :
"As amended by the Act of Juno 22nd, 1852,
illicit cohabitation bhall hereafter be punished us
It is conceded that the Courts cannot recognize
und punish offenses which are not defined
and made eucli by statute. In this Kingdom
where a I'enal Code has been adopted, theru are
no offenses at common law.
Now it teems to us that the plain intention of
the Legislature when it enacted the law " to
ubolish tbe law of illicit cohabitulion," was to do
away i til the distinctive offeuse of "lewd association
und cohabitation oi u man and uoiueu
not married to each other," a state of living together
from which illicit eexunl intercourse is
inferable. The Legislature has also added that
Euch living together is puuistiahle as udultery.
This appears lo be as if the Legislature had said
iu terms, tiz: 'The gist of the offense oi illicit
cohibition is the unlawful sexual intercourse
which this living together presumes ; hereafter
it shall be punished as such.' If the Legislature
had merely intended to lessen the punishment by
saying that this offense should have the same
punishment us adultery, the mischief which the
preamble recites und which the repeal of the
section was intended to remedy, would still exist.
Now adultery is defined by our laws as an
so also is fornication. The former being
in iolaiion of the sanctity of the marriage relation,
is punishable more severely lliau the latter.
But both of these definitions cover the
ordinary cases of violations of the laws l purity
and virtue. It is not sufficient, as it seems lo
us, lo say that those words " illicit cohabitation"
mean something. What they mean must be declared
by the law (o bo cootrary to law and punishable
by law. "Illicit" means ' unlawful or
forbidden," and "cohabitation" means u living
logetnor us man and wife." But it needs a further
statement lo that to show that the
living together of n man and woman who have
not inter-married is illicit or unlawful.
Peual laws must be construed strictly. Nothing
can be taken by implication as against a
, Jt may not.be presumed that (in holding; ,as
we do. that the law does not now recognize" the
distinctive offense of illicit cohabitation) there
is no law which will punish the cohabiting and
living together of u man and woman who are not
married, and that only exact proof of positive
acts of sexual intercourse will warrant
Wo do not so hold. All the facts and
circumstances that lead to tbe fair inference of
adultery or fornication as a necessary conclusion
may be shown in evidence under prosecutions
for adultery ,or fornication, precisely as they
would bo if the prosecution was for illicit cohabitation.
As Lord Stow ell has said, " It Is not necessary
to prove the direct fact of adultery, because
it it were otherwise, there is not one case in a
hundred in which that proof would be attainable ;
it is very rarely, indeed, that the parties are surprised
in the direct fact of adultery. The circumstances
must be such as would' lead the
guarded discrediton of a reasonable and just man
to tbe conclusion."
2 Creenleaf, 40.
This ruling need have no effect to relax the
execution of the laws on this subject.
The judgment of the Court is that tho objection
taken by tbe defendant is good, and he is

XAKUAIMAbU R. HALSTEAD and

" 'Opinion by Judd.'j
This is en action of Ejectment The
plainant alleges that' defendants have taken pos
session ot the most northern third of the land
described in Royal Patent No. 262 granted to
Kupahu. tbe plaintiffs ancestor.
The jury, under tbe direction of tbe Court,
rendered a verdict for the plaintiff subject to tbe
following question reserved :
" Whether the Statute of Limitations will
ran against a person claiming to be a tenant in
.common ot tbe land with Ibe plaintiff, both claiming
through the same ancestor!
Judgment oo the verdict to be modified if the
"Court shall think the plaintiff is only entitled to
a moiety and is not entitled the have the verdict
stand for the whole.
The Court are toconsider in connection with
tbe point reserved, not from the testimony
produced on the ttial an actual ouster ot
Kihikapn, defendants' lessor, ever look place, or
if an ouster ot his ancestors ever took place."'
We find from the testimony taken at the trial,
that tbe Patentee, Kupabu k. died in 1853, leaving
no children or mother or father or brother,
and bis heirs at law were bis sister, Peku w. and
his widow Kalauoaika w. The widow remained
on the land with her eon. the plaintiff, the issue
of a former marriage. Upon her death in 1865,
tbe plaintiff continued in possession of all of tbe
land, until the defendants took possession of one
third of it, say 20 acres, nnder a leaxe from
V, who is the nephew of Hooleiamoa k,
the husband of Pekn above mentioned. Tbe
plaintiff bag houses on and is in possession of
the portion of land not occupied by defendants.
The possession of plaintiff and bis mother before
him was exclusive, and neither Peku nor
any of her heirs ever lived on the land or claimed
In 1871 Pekn disdains having any right or
title to tho land. The lease to defendants was
made in December, 187C.
Tbe authorities are unanimous and clear that
tbe possession of one co-heir eo.ires to the benefit
of the otber co-heirs or tenants in common.
It tberetore follows that the Statute of Limitations
cannot run against a tenant in common un
less there lias been an actual ouster or something
equivalent lo it. Until un ouster, or what is
equivalent, n demuud fur possession and a refusal,
a co-tenant cannul bring ejectment against his
We find on the testimony that there was no
difseizin or ouster of Peku prior to 1871. The
Statute of Limitations did not commence lo run
ugainsl her until that time, when sbe disclaimed
title to the land, if indeed the disclaimer has
that effect. Therelore sofficieut time has not
elapsed to establish in tbe plaintiff n title by
prescription to ibis land against Peku ur her
But tho lease made by the co-tenant
to the defendants, and their entry under it
upon a specific portion of tho land is an ouster
of the plaintiff, so far as that portion ot the land
But as there was no partition of this land
made between the heirs, the plaintiff is entitled
to the possession of this portion of the land in
The verdict therefore must stand.

A Career bv a Former Centkal
Among the arrivals at the Neil House, yester
day, were. Mr. J. II. 'Jouey und two daughters.
MlSB .Mary und .Miss (Lira, and Mrs. A. A.
of Honolulu. Tho parents of tho latter
were'natives tf the Sandwich Islands, und ihe
Inly is a of Mr. Coney. Tbo young
ladies were brought lo the United Slates to
trut el and to attend school at Oakland, California.
Their uge3 nre fifteen und seventeen respectively.
They the best culture that wealth
and u high social position nl hnme can give.
Their father is u nalivo of New York, but came
to Ohio with his parents when quite a small boy
and settled ut Etna, Licking county. Mr. Coney's
father died a few years ago. His mother is living
at Lancaster, Fairfield county, at the advanced
age of eighty-four years. Mr. Coney
und family will visit at Lancaster, and will proceed
from thence lo Washington, Baltimore,
New Ytnk, Boston, und other eastern cities before
returning to Oakland, California. They will
meet President Hates by letter of introduction
from Dr. W. B. Hawfces of this city. The young
ladies iiro becoming deeply interested in their
tour through this country, and Mr. Coney is of
the opinion that it will have a tendency to make
them belter satisfied tu remain at Oakland ufior
his return lo Honolulu. Mrs. Haabba says she
enjoys tbe quietude of her island bomo hetter
Ihau she does the hurry and bustle of extended
railway travel. This feeling, possibly, is owing
to indisposition, which' confined her to her room
while ut the Neil House.
A NOVEL RETURN FROM CALIFORNIA.
Upon arriving at Chicago, Mr. Coney telegraphed
to Dr. Ilawkes the hunr of arrival here.
Dr. Ilawkes. in 1850. furnished throe young men
with money lo go to California. Mr. Coney was
one of the three. Unlike many who vore thus
sent out, these three were hunorable, and were
fortunate in their adventures, and all repaid their
benelaclor in lull. Not having seen Mr. Coney
for twenty-seven years, Dr. Ilawkes went to the
depot to meet his protege. Tho appearance of
the ladies with Mr. Coney made his identification
very' easy by Dr. Ilawkes. wfio advanced
and made himself known. Otherwise he could
not have been identified by Mr. Coney. The
meeting was very cordial. Indeed both gentlemen
were visibly affected.
' Dr. Ilawkes has al'vuys felt great satisfaction
at the success which has attended Mr. Coney in
his fur off home, and Mr. Coney will persist in
attributing his success to the kindness of Dr.
Among the pleasant incidents ot the meeting
was the presentation of a cocoa cane to Dr.
Ilawkes by Mr. Coney. The cane has a massive
gold head, made from gold mined by the
donor in 1850, and which he kept expressly for
the benefit of his benefactor.
THE TIDE SHAKESPEARE TALES OF.
Mr. Coney's trade, learned in Ohior enabled
him to Qad immediate employment at
upon his arrival at San Francisco in 1850.
The other two men went to tho mines. Failing
heullh induced Mr. Coney to sail for Honolulu
before he had been a year in California.
'There Is a tide In the affairs of men,
Which, taken at the flood,
Lead on to fortune."
This tide, in Mr. Coney's case, really commenced
at Honolulu. The aid received trum Dr.
Ilawkes was the foundation upon which the
superstructure was reared, but the experience of
the Buckeye boy in California was not such as
would have led to the result he has achieved in
the Sandwich nds. One of the most curious
features 'of the case is that the sending oi Mr.
Coney to California waa a mere accident, tie
was not included, in the original three whom Dr.
Ilawkes Intended to send, but was taken at the
last'inotnent as a substitute for one whose wife
was threatened with lunacy ou account of the
contemplated visit of her husband to the Golden
State. Dr. Huwkes had passage secured for three.
Rather than lofe tbe money invested in the ticket,
it was given lo Mr. Coney who was among
three or four applicants for the vacancy.
Mr. Coney commenced life in Honolulu by holding
office. He entered the police service and
waa soon made u leading officer, and was
Sheriff'of tbe island,- and marriod one
of the daughters of a chief. While Sheriff, be
quelled a revolution that took place 150 miles
from Honolulu. His deputy was kilted in this
The marriage bronght with it a handsome matrimonial
endowment, whicn Mr. Coney bandied
with care until it,' Las increased into a great fortune.
' One sale-made just prior to leaving the
Islands for America amounted to S95 000 in
cash I This the reporter learned frpm Dr. Ilawkes.
He obtained it through correspondence.' Mr.
'Cpoey'a' becomiog modesty about his financial
Success in life would prevent boasting. Tbo
statement is made public because it brings
another Ohio man to the front whose integrity is
a bright example.
WUES MR. CO.VEV LEFT PICKAWAY C0UNTT
twenty-seven years ago he was of slender form.
His personal presence then was greatly in contrast
with hi3 present manly .bearing. Jlevt ill
Weigh. two hundred pounds, is tall, erectand has
grey hair, and chin whiskers of the same color, a
pleasant face, clear eye and is possessed of good
Eoglish colloquial attainments, and speaks the
Lauve dialect of tbe island fluently.
A CONSUL HEARD FROM.
The party left home September 11th ; the
same day that Minister Coaly sailed frftm San
Francisco for Honolulu. This brings to the
surface the fact that Columbus, in recent years,
has turnisbed several men for U. S. positions in
these Islands. A Mr. Maltoon, formerly of this
city, but of late years a Washington clerk, was
Consul tbeir under Grant, until succeeded by
Hon. James Scott. Mr. Mat toon left the Islands
nnder awkward circumstances for a U, S. Consul.
He owed everybody and said be bad no
money to pay,. A gentleman of this city bad
given bim a letter of introduction to Mr. Coney,
from whom tho sum of 8300 was borrowed u an
absolute necessity 'to get-off' the -Island.--' The
Consul'? wife had sailed in a preceding vosacl.
and tbe Consul evidently hoped to be able to
slip away on the next vessel, bat when tbe hour
of sailing arrived be found that he was cooped
by officers of the law, and with tears in bts eyes
be borrowed the money, and has not even deigned
to answer letters written to him concerning
it, though be promised to return tbe amount immediately
upon urnval at Washington. This
cuuntry should keep all such men out of official
stations abroad 1 It is bad enougi: t,o have them
at home. The gentlemen from Ohio who represent
the United Slates at Honolulu now. by their
intelligence and lulegrity, may be able lo blot
out the slain left by the other man.
LABOR AND SUGAR CULTIVATION.

combined, except tbe Chinese, who have been
imported in large numbers to work on immense
sugar plantations. Sngar cane is grown the

as a body, don't do any more work than
cessary lo sustain their families. Hence the ?
ponution of Chinese labor. Mr. Coney saya a
native need not wurk to exceed one boar per day
to sustain a family, r.very article of food grows in
abundance, and clothing is of the cheapest qual
ity. The average yield of sugar is four tons per
acre. Plantations, this year, have contracted
their crops at about sever, cents, making the
gross receipt per acre $560.
