Hawaiian Gazette Supplement Dec. 27. 1882,
Supreme Court in CbamWr- Dc 21 at
II LBN U hVSO KtE & Co., VS. JCIXiE lUCKOTtiS 1M ,
The iaintifis in Uiia cae claimed 2U0 (lmacs
of the defendants for issuing and aolLorixiuc tlio
hcrrico of a search warrant upon their premises.
Mr. XlicVcrton appeared for himself, Mr. l'rreton
for Mr. Fuk&
Tbo record of the tehtimony in the cabc of the
uxne plaintiffs acaixiht officers Marcos and Oadt
was acntd upon as the evidence to be talen in this
cane. The substance of the argument of Mr. llart
vell, counsel for the plaintiffs was as follows.
or searches unless for probable cause, supported
by oath, and describing the place to be warcLcd
and the person to be seiiit . This complaint does
nut mention the name of one of thcuo plaintiffs, I
nor their firm name. It dont nut describe the
tilace as in Honolulu or on tbe island of Oahn or
elsewhere, simply 2 Hotel bW
Z, the provision of Ch. 4 . Ac VrMl Cudc,
uo ttearch warrant can israe unless some one isac
c&bed cf a criminal offence. This complaint
charcoa no criminal offence against any of these
plaintiffs or any one else. The only Losis forthe
warrant is that sundry opium i 3 concealed on the
premises of Ix Kce, cb at No. 21 Hotel
street,' If tub is a bads for a seizure and
search, no bousc-holders in this Kingdom are ex
empt from arrests and fcearcbeR. There most be
a chare) that the parties c harped hare done some
criminal act, or leen privy to it.
3. Iiy.Siv-i ofth Cinl Cotit no warrant can
Issue bat on affidavit of personal know lege or per
sonal belief. In this case the officer who makes
the complaint simply deposes that ho suspects
and has cause to'suspect that sundry opium is con
cealed, Ac .Suspicion is not and ought not to be
Mtf. A warrant issued on suspicion was against
Magna Chnrin at common law, and was no justifi
cation to court or officer.
i. This warrant is illegal, told and a prooutsun
Inown to the law. The Magistrate bad no juris
diction over these plaintiffs by reason of the com
plaint, and all searches and arrests under it are
illegal, making all concerned in issuing or serving
or authorizing the service of the wnt liable in
damages to the parties injuriously affected.
( Citing numerous American and Koglish decisions
i The Marshal is in the eye of the law present
with his deputies and officers when they serve pre
cedes, and is liable for their acts.BUe should ee
that they are properly instructed in these matters.
The plaintiffs1 counsel said he believed that the
execution of the opium law is the source of cor
ruption and irregularities, tending to L ring the law
into deserved contempt, lie muU the plaintiffs
cared nothing for money damages, lu desired
their rights of person and property to 1 e respected
by Magistrates and officers of the law.
3Ir. lnckerton claimed that a Magisu&te has a
right to use discretion in deciding w Lether a proper
basis is laid for issuing a warrant, and Uiat the
statute required him to issue it if he was .shown
cause to suspect that parties were concealing or
smoking opium cm their premises. That the form
of complaint and warrant in this case was a print
ed form which he did not prepare, but which was
itrepared by the authorities whom he must respect,
inat it would not be proper for him to call upon
tiffictrs to show him all the facts on which they
proposed to prosecute, as there would be danger
of prejudicing a case. That no officer is compUl.
cdtodiMclode information on which ho brings a
criminal prosecution. Finally, that be had not
authorize the officers to delay the service of tho
Mr. Jreton for the Marshal, claimed that how
rtcritmightbeender the law of Inland, the
Marshal here is not liable for the acts of the cou
Ktablcs, the wnt being expressly directed "To tho
Marshal, or his Deputies or any Constable."
The arguments vcro full of interest, and the
Chief Justice took the case under advisement.

Thu audience room of Fort St Church was will

tnembcrs of the Temperance boacty and a pom
br of Tiaitors, ho were prchent to listen to tho
evidence cxpecUd to be iircbtnted in relation to
the evil effects produced ou the native clement by
Ike Krauting of free liquor laws. Mr. Amasa Pratt
occupied the chair, Mr. lL Johnaon, Socrctarj.
After prayer and on ojcninj; hymn MissltreebC
fctated in a coudac and clear inanner her experienco
of tho drunkenness prevalent anumest the natives,
instancing that on every Saturday evening dnring
the hut month shohad noticed oer 200 natives
more or less under tho influence of liquor. Dr.
Emerson eaid ho was well acquainted with the law
&nd knew how it operated and he was tatisfied
that it was wurldng to tho detriment of the native
wpuLitiou. He had seen more natiies under tho
inflnenou of liquor durinf tho last two mouths
than daring the last four years preceding. When
he desired a boat boy to row him to a ycskI in tho
harbor the trip was rarely made without the pro
duction of a cin nask by the oarsman and an in
vitation to take a drink." In tho expresses
driven by natives, a eoarch under tho Beats cent-rail
y brought to light the accomiianyiiig gin bottle.
Mr. A. Frank Cuokc, from his experience
anxingrtthateMwhoKodown to tho sea inBhips,"
could say with certainty that drunkenness was on
the increase among the native seamen. Those
ho did not indulge before, now do. Families
vere more destitute now. Mr. Chas. K. Cooke
wtated that his firm had been in tho habit for Years
of trusting and assisting natives with lumber who
dosired to build. They do so no more, the cause
being the impoveruihncss of tho natives by tho
indulgence in liquor. J ion. A. Francis J odd, con
aidercd the license law as passed, a btep backward.
Head from a journal of his father's the Hon. O. l
Judd, the successful etera taken by a former
nr.t. . 1 i.:t 1 1 .
dtweribed the scenes witnessed by him on a late
evening at the Commercial Saloon which he
likened into a pandemonium and desired never
again to witness the sights he then beheld. He
thought the non-granting of licenses in the country
districts or to the other hdanda had assisted great
ly in reducing drunkenness in those places. Mr.
T. H. Da vies thought that the existence of the free
liquor traffic in Honolulu would tend to draw
natives from the other islanJs, as it was now do
ing, and would thus depopulate the outer districts.
Mr. Johnson tho clerk of the Police Court stated
that from the ISthof July to tho 1st of October,
there were G2 arrests for drunkenness aim:
from the 1st of October to December l?lh, there
wire 3H arrests for the same crime. During the I
same period (Oct. 1 to Dec 38.) in there were
1$ arrests for drunkenness. He considered that
th statistics spoke for themselves. )
Dr. Whitney presented letters, one of which t
from Waialoa said, Hon. S. K. Kaal is here and j
everybody has had a big drunk in consequence.)
aioro igyr is crceraaxy 1a sappressmg me illicit
traffic in liquor. From conversations ith butch
ers, dairy-men. and bakers, he learned that natives
now purchased far less bread, less milk, and less
