macy of her grantor or her ancestors is
not to be assnmed cnless clearly proved,
and there was no such proof.
The substantial question in the case i
whether the defence of the statute of limi
tations is made out
Under the agreed facts it most be as
snmed aher the marriage of AV. I. Moe
of the stainte of 1S45. he took and held
possession of the land claimed, as her hus
band and that he held possession thereof
at the timeof her death, and thence till his
death inlSTS; and that thereafter his
heirs held and now hold the possession
thereof. If this possession after the death
of Kannnohca, was adverse to the plain
tiffs, their right of entry was long since
tolled, and they cannot recover.
The plaintiff daims that byTirtaeof the
appointment ot Moehonna as adnumstra
tcr ot the real and personal estate of Ka
nnnohna his wife, he became a trustee for.
the, plaintiff" and those ender whom they
claim and that thereafter he remained
their trustee till his death, and that, there
fore, his possession of the land was never
adverse to. bat was in accordance wimine
It is a familiar principle that a trastee

larger estate than the natsre of his imst

and was thereby entitled to the possession
of the isrjperty in suit it was only tempo
rarily, and tar the parposes 01 paying
uezs and sat'ject to tins oaty ine neir was
entitled to immediate possession, and to
the receipt of the rents and profits. If the
heir were in possession at the death of the
ancestor, we feel sore that the law would
cot allow the administrator tooosthim
from the possession, except upon pftibon

The retition was presented and consid

These papers arc conclusive that he
then claimed as heir of his wife.
Kapun. the first witness in Probate
swears, that Kaunnohna has no brothers
ot sisters or parents that "Moehonua is
her heir and no one disputes the property
This shows him to have leen then m
possession claiming as heir.
By the agreed facts we are now bound
to say that Kaunnohna then did have a
sister livinc whose lineal descendant was
the plaintiffs grantor, but the above proofs
show that Moehonna disputed that fact
and claimed to he owner of the whole in
his own right
The petition shows that Moehonna said
that Kaunnohna on the day of her death
made a verbal will in his favor.
Prior to the enactment of the organic
laws of 1SJC a verbal will might be made.
See estate of L. H. Kanin 2ml Haw"n R.
In that case a verbal will was e,tablished
in favor of his pre-ent Majesty Kalakana.
But we think that when Kaunnohna
died a verbal will was no longer valid.
See Stat Laws 1SW pp. 249 -91 See. L
Laws 1S1T v 53 Sec 3.
It is however evident that when Moeho
nna accepted the administration ho was in
Eissession openly claiming to 1" heir of
aunuohna and" to be entitled to the pro
perty in dispute, as owner, against all the
world. This claim, and the petition and
proofs then made, characterize and qualify

See AVashbura 011 Ileal I'mperty A'oL 2
p. 493, Perry on Trusts A'oL 2. Sec. 8M.
Moehonua not only denied the trust : be
never admitted it and it may be properly
inferred that he took the administration
because he lieheved it would aid his claim
of title as sole heir and it was his assertion
of it in Court He expressly denied the
title of all other heirs. An administration
so taken cannot possibly be construed into
an admission of other's rights.
A possession adversely commenced is
presumed to coctinue adverse, so long as
maintained. Bogardns vs. Trinitv Church
I Sand. Ch. ps. CO. 733. 1 Grwnleafs' Ev.
AVhea the administration was granted,
the possesion of Moehonua was adverse.
This condition continued unless taking
administration was an abandonment of
the character of the possession, and we
think we have shown that it was not See
Jackson vs. Sears, 10 John It, p. 435.
The circumstance that the title claimed
was void orcoxnmenced in fraud of the law
does not detract from adverse possession
commenced under it See Bogardns vs.
Trinity Church. 4 Sand. Ch. It, p. 739.
IlarpecdiEg vs. The Keformed Protestant
Butch Church. 1G Peters It. 455.
Even though Moehonna claimed tinder
a verbal will or claimed as heir without
any reason for it, his claim was none the i
less adverse on that account
For these reasons we hold that an ad i
verse possession of thirty years is made
onh and that the defence of the Statute ,
of limitation is established. j

ants be entered with costs.
