avers that Lis doty in this respect is fully set
forth In said act as follows;.
Section I. ice Minister of finance under the
direction of the King in Cabinet Council is hereby

Government from time to time, dunni? the period
of three years af Ur the passage of this Act, such
tnnu not exceeding in the, hole the sum of $2,

Air. ii an weir men mod exceptions to tne ie
turn, and argued that .it failed to raise an
issue of law on which tbe court could decide tbe
case. Ino only question now was whether the
bonds would be issued ot jxtr if sold for certain
silver coins as alleged in the petition. This aver
ment must be admitted or denied by the return.
Mr. Preston argued fontra. that the arcrment
about filver dollars was immaterial, and there-
foronecd net be denied. Air. Hart well in reply
Rdd that this was the only fact which was of any
importance and until it was settled, the case could
not be heard.
Tbe Court ruled that the return' was bad for the
reason named, whereupon the counsel for the re
poadent amended this return, by inserting an
a varment that he intended to accept fur the bonds,
" silver coin in half dollar pieces of equal weight
and fineness with United States silver coins ot the
same value and lawful money of the Government
of the Hawaiian Inlands."
Mr. Uartwell Cling a demurrer to this amended
return, the argument was at once token up on the
main question, viz.: whether tho ifwiing of tbe
bonds for such coins was a compliance with
the statute that they be "not iwued below par."
Counsel cited a case from New York, holding that
certain atato bonds which were so issued that the
btato lost same 13,000 on the interest, were not
issued "at par.' and that theso words meant that
the bonds would be aold for the name value in
which they were payable. The currency Act and
the coinage Act were not in question, silver could
still pa corrant for all Ibis case has to do with
the matter, but if these silver coins are worth only
a little over 23 cenU la . United Slates gold, there
would not be an issue at ror,
Mr. Preston argued for the amended return,
that me statute requirement, to isme the bonds
onlyxdai rnrtalueant that they be sold for the cur
rent cmu of the kingdom,
orxxiux or tbe cbakccxlob.

it! f ilk (O-iifnUiat the petitioners, as citi
zen ud :axrr spt hare the right to sue out this
writ. They have, as tixpavers, the right to en
deavor to prevent a public officer from doing what
Is an injury to the public ood. There are au
thorities on both sides of the question, bot the
current seems to be in favor of the right aed
especially the case of Crampton v. Zabriskie, cited
in 101 U.S. OK). This is a case decided in 1S79 by
the Supreme Court of the United State, and
air.fjusuce ritiu tor me uoun says: kji me
right of resident taxpayers to invoke the inter,
position of a Court of Equity to prevent the illegal
creation of a debt which they in common with
other property holders of tbe county may other
wise be compelled to pay, there is at this day no
pc nous question,"
To denv this right to a taxpayer would be to
say that there is no remedy and no way by which
a Minister of the Crown can be prevented from
doing an illegal act Impeachment is too rfiadowy
and nn certain to be thought of as an adequate
remedy. If only the Attorney General can promote
such a matter, the answer Is that there has been
no Attorney General Fince May last and it would
be idle to expect an Attorney General who is one
oi me vamnet to commence proceedings against
his own colleague,
A Minister is responsible to the King for his

Havinrr riven this matter considerable studr and
Attention and having arrived at a clear and decid
ed opinion upon the question involved, I give my
decision now, knowing also that delay would be
injurious to tne respondent.
1 remark here that tho petitioners are not
amenable to criticism for having brought this
action so late. They could have no standing In
Court until tho act complained of was about to ba
committed, and if proceedings had been com
menced months ago it could bo well answered that
the application was premature and the respondent
was not about to act in tho manner alleged.
Moreover, if tbe act complained of is illegal at
an, it was 8!) at me inception ana continues so
throughout and it loses none of its illegality by
lapse of time.
I remark here that the abilitr of the corernment
to borrow money under tbe Loin Act ot 192 does
not affect tbe vitality or existence of the govern
ment The authontv was riven bv this act to
uurruw money ior certain specinc pnrpones name a

used or applied, dircctlvorindirectlr. either tem
porarily or otherwise to or for any public use or
purpose otner man ttie purposes respectively to
which tho same is hereby directed to bo applied.
I presume the Legislature felt that the ordinary
resources of the government would be sufficient
for its ordinarv expenditures and so have not
aumorizea me borrowing or money lor its or
dinarv expenditures.
So my decision in this case cannot affect the lifi
or credit of the government.
Whether the bonds of the government have or
have not been difficult of sale is foreign to this
issue, itmey nave not been eagerly twugut ior,
possibly it is because the interest, being only six
per cent is too low, being three per cent, lower
than the legal rate or interest
The authoritv of the Minister of Financo in tbe
premises is to be found within the four corners of
this Act
Section 1 authorizes the Minister of Finance
under the direction of the King in Cabinet Council
to borrow on tbe credit of the Hawaiian Govern
ment during a period of the three years, sums of
money not exceeding two Minion uoiiars, ana
the bonds to be issued therefor, are (1st) to be
issued mt not tt tfwn par, (2d) they are to bear
interest n-jt exceeding six per cent, (3d) they are
to bo exempt from government taxes, (4 th) they
are to bo redeemable in not less than fire nor mora
than twenty-firo years and 5thi they are payable
principal and interest in Vnitttl Slates golJ coin or
id fqttiralfnt. The bonds must be issued in exact
compliance with tho law. They munt be issued,
savs the Act, at not less than par. What is parr
All tbe lexicographers say that par is exact
equivalence without discount or premium, that
u, mere must no received lor thepo bonds tbe
exact equivalent of tbe sum secured to be paid by
them. They are to bo paid In Vailed State aoM
coin or Us njiiirateitt and this must therefore be
received ior tnem.
If a promissory noto calls for payment of J&00
sterling, the pir value would bo 12300 sterling and
nothing lets. Now, if tho Minister of Finance
prupot'ea to dispose of these bonds for anything
lesa than their lace in United State pold no in nr
iu equivalent, it is a violation of tbe law. It mat
ters not if the silver half dollars which the res
pondent proposes to tako for tho bonds be current
as money in this realm. Theltw says mot dis
tinctly that the bonds must not bo sold for less
than par.and as Uie ailver half dollars are far less
in intrinsic valuathaft their face value in United
ota.es gold coin, to sell tho bonds thus is selling
them for lean thaiiJwr.
The law of this kincdom makes United States
gold tho stand-ird of valuo and legal tender. This
ltw must bo administered by the Court even if the
community and the gorernn.ent by common con
sent ignoro its existence. No law is a dead letter
to the Court. I may here say that the Act of 1880
providing ior a national uoinage, auinonzcsme
Minister of Finance, "to purchase gold and silver
bullion with any moneyi trArWi may from time to
time le m tht Treasury and to cause to be coined
therefrom cold and wlver coins" of eoual woioht
and fineness with United States gold and silver
coins of the stnio denominations. '1 hat is, foreign
coin already in circulation might thus be changed
into Hawaiian coin and this the Legislature
thought would not probably disturb the currency
very seriously. Silver Is a commodity fluctuating
iu value and It has bot-rt declining in value for
some years and tho standard halt dollar of the
United States ia by the latest quotations not worth
in United States cold much raoro than 40 cents,
ltcing of tho oninion that tho bonds are proposed
to be issutd bv the respondent for leas than nar. I
grant the writ of mandamus.
I ought to say further that the 70lh Article of
tho Constitution requires tho Supreme Court to
giro its opinion to the King and the Cabinet 'upon
important questions of law and upon solemn occa
sions." And the Justices of the Supreme Court
aro alwai s ready to ciro their oninions to the Gov.
ernmcnt when important steps aro contemplated.
In this instance tbe opinion of the Court was not
asked.

A Three Days Storm nnd the Rcsnlta

a f harp lookout to windward,' nnd by 1.20 a. ra. on
the 13th, the wind was blowing strong, creating
quite a swell in the harbor, and breakers being
visible on the bar. The blow continued with but

occasional squill, during one of which, on the
