UrXMO Of THE COUBT, BY ilcCTELY, J.
On nriKjal from the decision of tho Chan
cellor dismissing the Bill.
Tho Bill sets forth that a Land Commission
Award was made March 25th, 1651, to
kckoi (ancestor of the plaintiff) and his heirs
for certain parcels of land at Kamakcla m
Honolulu, that on the Clh of June, 1655. a
Koyal Patent for tho said awarded lands was
issued to Kalacokekoi, bis heirs and assigns
that at some time unknown to the plaintiff,
but believed by him to be on or after the said
Clh of June, 1&55, a Rojal Fatctt for the same
lands was issued to a person believed by the
plaintiff to be one KaUkini now deceased to
"Aalacokck.01 lor Jvalakim. lliat tbe plaintiff
believes that the last ncntioucd Talent
was obtaiocd by Kalakim without right
through fraud That the plaintiff is entitled
to this land by descent from Kalaeokckoi 1st
deceased intestate but that the defendants are
in possession, claiming through the said
by virtue of the last mentioned Koyal
Patent. Ana by amendment alter demurrer,
that his mother, heir at law of Kalaooktkoi
lsU, was in possession from his death to her
own death in 1BC0. And that while bo knew
of the wrongful possession of tho defendant,
he w as then and for a long time aftcrw ards too
poor to bring suit. The Bill prays that tho
second mentioned l.oral Patent may be sur
rendered, ordered to be cancetlcd L the Court
and that defendants be enjoined from using tho
eamo as a defense in actions to recover the
The answer denies on information and belief
that a Patent was issued to Kalacokekoi
and bis heirs but avers that Unas issued lo
Kalacokekoi for Kalakim denies fraud or mie
take and at era that at the date of the iseno
thereof, Kalakini was in osscssion and has
held by htrself and her heirs, the del end
ants, till now
Jiu the tmtrt.
The subject matter of the Bill is tbe I.03 al
Patent which it is prayed be cancelled, and to
that instrument in comparison with the re
cord in the .Land uiucc ana tiic copy irom mat
record produced by petitioner, we bavo given
much examination. Tho course of business
in the Land Office has been to make a copy in
a of etch Koyal Pattnt before
delivery. Tho one original document is tho
Patent, signed by the King, countersigned by
the Minister and impressed with the great
beal. A ccrubca copy lrom tuo register can
be obtained by any person on payment of the
The portions of the two Patents which it is
necessary to comment on are as follow s TLe
words in italics are erased from tho register
and tho words which follow in brackets have
been written o cr tho erasures, the petitiuncrs
copy conlormmg to tbe altered register.
'o. 1063, Koyal Patent upon confirmation
of the Land Commission. hercas the Board
of Commissioners to Ouict Land Titles have by
their decision awarded unto Kalacokekoi for
Kalahm for his heirs Land claim G215, Xo.
1, an estate of freehold less than allodial, in
and to tho land hereinafter described and
hcreas, tho said (the words "tho said" cress.
ed cur but not erased in tho register, and are
omitted in the petitioners copy) Kalakim has
commuted tho title as awarded for a fee sim
ple title, by the payment or the sum of three
hundred and forty dollars into the Treasury.
Therefore, Kamchameha, King, etc., etc., has
this daj granted and given absolutely, in fee
simple unto Kalacokekoi for Kaltihm bis
heirs all that ccrtiio pieco of land, etc. To
havo and to hold the above granted land in
fee simple unto tho said Kalacokekoi for Kafa-
kiut bis betrsj ber beirs and assigns lorever,
Both instruments aro dated June GUi 1615.
The original patent bsforo us proves itself.
The court takes judicial notice of tho signature
of tbe then King, Kamchameha IV, and
uf the Kuhiua'ui, Victoria K. Kara amain,
countersigning it, as well as ot tuo beal af
fixed. Two members of the court have also
personal knowledge of these signatures,
as well as of tho handwriting of tho then Chief
Clerk of tho Interior Department, by whom
tho patent is written. It is ungues tiouably
ths authentic original patent issued on the CUi
of June 1655. Tbcreis no proof whatever to
aapport the allegation that an original KJ
Patent was issued to "Kalacokekoi for his
heirs," in the form of the copy which the
petitioner presents, on tbe ctu 01 June JS55
or al any sulacqucst day and all tho inferences
from the regular course of business
in the Land office are that there were not tuo
original patents signed by the King and countersigned
by tho Minister, issued the samo
day or on different days to different parties
for the same piece of land.
The hypothesis on which this bill is brought
and sought to be maintained, therefore fails
at its initial point.
It is next claimed in argument tnat
this genuine patent was issued by fraud
or mistake, and that subsequently, the mis.
take having been discovered the register
was amended to correspond with what tho
patent should haveibecn made. Tho petitioner
w Lolly Tails to enow any proof or probabilities
in supjiort of this surmise. On the other hand
the facts all correspond with another hypoth
esis, namely that at some time after the issue
of the patent the register was fraudulently
altered to "enable the ictitioncrtoprcseutsacii
a certified copy as he now bases his claim
upon. Tw o things defeat the attempt. First
the existence of the original and authentic patent.
The parties to the scheme may have
reckoned on the loss of this instrument, as
many other patents have been lost, destroyed
by fire, or other casualty. Tho instrument
before us is worn by handling into pieces, but
no part or it is obliterated. It shows what
was granted, and what was once recorded in
the records nf the Land Office. Secondly, the
blunders and inconsistencies in the altera tic ns.
Tbe altered inttrnraeut is made to read as a
grant to "Kalaeokekoiyor his bora" instead of
to Kalacokekoi and his heirs, w kicb is at erred
in tuo bill, and wbich would bare been the
proper grant if it had been to Kalaeokekoi.
The habendum has the double blunder of
reading, "to the said Kalaeokekoi for his her
heirs. It should be said that Kalacokekoi
was a man and Kalakini was a woman, so that
in the oriinnal the Pronoun her is used
out, while the alterations to "his' failed to
erase or change the last "her." And in the
beginning of the instrument there is the j
-.- w '" S ' --

ing oversight of leaving it to read that whereas
Kalakim lias paia a commutation 01 010, a
feee simple title is accordingly granted to Ka
The alterations arc so imperfect! r and in
consistently made that the register could bo
restored to its original verity even without tin)
aid of the extant original patent.
The Court is asked to cancel an aulbenits

lodges of fraudulent alteration. This car not
Cat the petitioner contends that the original
Koyal rate lit lo Kalaeokekoi for Kalakini
tbonld be cancelled, as being at variance from
the award, wmen was made to Kal&eoknkoi
lor Hs heirs.
The petitioner avers possession in his ancestor
of the granted lands for a prescriptive
term. This is denied by the rcspendent, and
en examination of the proofs we find that the
;ssession of the major part of the land as
ia tho heirs of Kalakmi eidco 1&62, and an to
the remaining part, there was undisputed possession
for fifteen j ears. The petitioner has
shown that ho became of legal ago about a
year after the Koyal Patent was issued :d
was under no disability except that of poverty
which cannot be seriously contended to bo a
legal excuse for his laches. The possession
of the respondent should have pnt him on enquiry.
Courts of equity act in obedience to
tho 'stature of limitations, and as the larger
part of tho estate is shown to have been in tbe
possession of respondents for twenty years,
tho statute is a cemplcte defense and compels
equity to deny relief on the ground of laches.
Seo Kalakaua ct, al vs. Kcaw camahi et. al.
1 Haw. Kcpts. 177.
So far as tho Koyal Patent covers the land
shown to have been in resjroudent's possession
for a less period than the statutory limit, that
is for fifteen years, we think that the petitioner
fs not entitled to relief. This is not an
action of ejectment wherein the plaintiff can
recover so much of tho real estate as he has
shown title to, but it is a bill to cancel the
whole patent and tho titioner must cither
hate the relief prayed for or it must be denied
AVc thick this sufficient upon which to dismiss
the bill. But if only fifteen years of adverse
jiosscssion of respondents bo considered
as show n, this under tho circumstances of this
case is evidence of such laches on tho part of
the petitioner in tho prosecution of his rights
and of such mucasonaUy long acquiesccnco in
the assertion of the adverse claims of tho
respondent to oblige equity to decline to interfere
in his behalf.
Story's Equity Juris, Sec. 1520 and notes
may bo referred to as supporting this doctrine.

This is an action, for an alleged breach of
contained in on agreement between the
parties. Tbe plaintiff, and another who has now
parted with his interest, therein acrwa to plant
not less than 75 and not more than 150 acres of
sugar cane yearly for the term of ten years,
of rattoons, and the defendants ajree to
grind and manufacture the same for a certain
ahare stated. The agreement is lengthy and goes
into many particulars. The corenant upon which
this action is based, is as follows :
"And it i also further agreed in consideration
'- of tbe distance from said mill that the parties of
" the first part their beirs and angns will pay to
Charles A Chapin bis heirs and assigns the turn
of t&ree (3.00) dollars per ton on all the sugar
" produced from thirty-seven and one-half (37K1
" acres of cane, and rattoons of each crop, daring
" the above term of ten years, said number of tons
" per acre to be an average of the entire crop of
' cane and rattoons each year."
The plaintiff claims tbe sum of $600X0 being the
sum of three dollars a ton upon sugar made from
374 acre of plant cano and 37K tons of rattoons,
&nd reoQfestiD" the nresidiiiz justice to charge the
jury that he was entitled to this sum upon a pro
per construcuon 01 inc agreement, aoo tour,
to grant this instruction but directed the
jnry to find a verdict for the plaintiff for $131.72
being a sum at the rate of J3.W rer ton upon 37f
We are now to decide what is meant by the
words thirty-seven nnd one-half acres of cane
and rattoons." Do they mean thirty-seven and
one-half acres eaco of cane and rattoons, that is,
seventy-five acres of sugar cane composed of cither
or both plant cane and rattoons, or thirty-seven
and one-half acres of cane only whether the same
be plant cane or rattoons ?
ords in n contract are to bo construed in their
ilain and ordinary meaning, and where a meaning
can bo derived lrom them without the interpolation
of other words this meaning must be received
as the one intended by tho parties To give tho
words " seven and one-half acres ot cane
and rattoons, the meaning contended for bv the
plaintiff, would require that the wordeach"'be in
serted. or some other word to show that it was in
tended that S7? acres of plant cane and aim Xl
acres of rattoons wasto be reckoned n the average
npon which the sanj of (3.00 per ton of BDgnr pro
dnewl lhertfrotn was to be ttaid.
Yc am not impressed with the argument that as
.,1 acres was the minimum acreace to bo planted
each year, this must be assumed to be the acreage
on which the 3 00 per tun was to be assessed, for
the cant raised on tin, amount of land would be
all plant cane and not rattoons Aloreover the
distance from the mill was the consideration for
this allowance and uot the quality of the cane to
be carted, whether plant or rattoons, it not
that one is more difficult to cart than the
Uy Section 1C of the Cint Code, each of the

tion require encu ounsirnciiou. ineworu ana
between "cane and rattoons means both "and'
asd wor." and aputruz this rule of construction
to tho words of the conlmct, it may be re-l as
follows . $3 00 per ton was to be paid by the
on all the sngir produced from
and one half acres of cano and (or) tHttoons,
it is immaterial which, for the number of tons was
to be an average of the entire crop of cane and
rattoons crxu vear.
As to the matter of cartin". the cano and rat
toons are not separated in the contract. If thero
were to bo thirtv seven and one half acres of cane
tind and one-half acres of ratoons,
to average the tons per aero of plant cane and
rattoons separately to the whole Acreage of plant
cane and rattoons would be unfair and was not

This is an action of assumpsit in which the
Chief Jaatice below directed a verdict for the de
the facts on which the plaintiff claimed to re
cover are substantially as follows: The defendants
are bankers and have a department of their business
which they term a bAviugs Bank. A pass
book on this foavings Bank is presented which
shows a deposit on April 11th, 187V of three hundred
dollars tu silver and credits of interest
making with the principal on March 11th, lbSJ,
ice sum 01 (01 ti..
These deposits aro preceded by the statement.
Bishop L Co. In account with Lukela Kaai-nana
to order of his father Kaaimann."
'the p'aintiff sues as administrator of LukeU
jvaaimanu wno cueu a minor ana who was the son
of Kaaimann who is also dead and whose administrator
duly appointed was as such paid the sum
claimed by the defendant on March 23tb, Ibf. on
indentation by him of the said pass book and
etters of administration. It was also shown that
it was a rule of the bank to pay dvpoat only on
luraiaiiauuu 01 me ueputui uuojl, ana aiso a rate
to pay only to the person to whoeo order tbe
money was payable and not to the person for
wuue uencut uie money was uepositeu. A
mand and refusal of payment by the defendant
to the plaintiff was also shown.
Tbe best view that can be taken for the plaintiff
is that the fond belonged to his intestate, and that
be auoweu uis lauier naaimanu to aeep ms bank
book, and made the money mentioned in it payable
to his father's order, and told the defendants
in writing no to pay it- Hot that his own death
and the death of his father also were each soffi
cicnt to revoke the power to draw the money m
behalf of the father's estate, mid so the money
was improptrly paid over.
This view cannot be The words ia
the bank book were sufficient to constitute a valid
direction to the defendants to iy the money only
to the order of he father. From it the defendants
had a right to infer, that tho father had, for value
by him, the right to draw the money. The
elirery of the book, and the words written in it,
were equivalent to a draft or a check on the defendants
bonk pajable to the order ot the father,
and at the father's death his administrator could
draw the raoner. as he cuuld on such a draft or
check. The defendants were not agents of any
bodr. Thev were men dooeitone. An men
they were bound t j deliver the money to the father
or bis representative as directed by the sou the
See Btorr on Bailment. Sees. 102. 103-4. and 107.
If before payment the plaintiff bad notified the
defendants not to pay the money the case might
have bees different, but there is no such pretence.
See liL, Section 101.
Furthermore we thmk that the rules of the defendants
as a savings bank which were proved,
were binding upon the plaintiff's intestate as a
depositor, and that under those rules tho defend
ant properly made .the payments to the father's
bee Vi all vs. Provident Institution for Savings,
3rd Allen, KC, SI X. Y. It, p, 543.
But the facts show that when the deposit was
made the plaintiffs intestate was an infant; and
the presumption would be that the father deposited
his own money. That be retained theCpossessionnf
the bank book and caused the money to be made
payable to his own order. It would Bean that he
intended a gift of the money to the son. But by
his sets bo controlled, and intended to keen eon
Irol of the fund. If this were so, the gift was incomplete,
because there was no delivery.
laltlie ts. Quiets, 5 lUrb. 123-y, the Court
declare wnat we think is the true rule, that "Xo
gift tut ft ctrot is sustained U conferring title unless
the change of possession be positive, and tbe
donor m no condition to repossess himself of the
