On the Dili diy of August, 1670, nliat p-pun
to be a lowe in writing, from tlie defendant
to tbc plaintiff, of certain land and premises
in Kohala, Tlawaii, for tlie term of tlirce rears
from date, at the monthly rcnUl of $12, was
executed and delivered lo the plaintiff lij
II. Johnson, lio eigns the inritnimcnt in the
name of defendant bjr himself. At the time,
ho was acting manager of the plantation in tho
absence of Mr. Geo. C. Williams, manager, and
remained nch acting manager till the return
of Williams in 1660. There were, in the ab
sence of Williams, two local directors whose
dulr it was lo confer with Johnson about
The instrument in terms gave plaintiff the
right to erect a certain building on the land
and more another, and agreed that at the end
of the lease tho defendant would bu? tho new
bouso at a reasonable price. In pursuauce of
this lease the plaintiff at once entered into possession,
and moved one bouse and erected another,
and occupied the premises and -paid rent
till the return of Mr. Williams, the manager,
in February. I860, and soon thereafter was
informed by Mr. Williams that hit lease wa
void, but was allowed to remain, and paid
rent as usual to Williams, till he resigned as
manager in 1651, and thereafter continued to
pay rert to Mr. Chapin, as manager. In May,
16S2, ejectment was brought by defendant
against plaintiff, and thereupon an instrument
was executed between plaintiff and defendant,
which recites that tho pliintiff, in consideration
of the discontinuance and withdrawal
of said suit, (in ejectment) "doth hereby
the said lease, and relinquish all claim
to said premises or any part thereol by reason
of said lease or by reason of any right or claim
arising thereout or therefrom," and the plaintiff
further consents that he is tenant at will
of dc- fendant, removable on ten days notice,
and agrees to pay rent on demand.
Thereafter, about May,' 1661, the plaintiff
was ejected by defendant from the premises
and thereafter demanded payment for said
building erected by him, or the right to remove
the same, which were refnsed and tho plaintiff
The by-laws or the defendant provide as
"The President and Treasurer shall sign all
conveyances and contracts, which arc required
by the laws of this kingdom to bo put on record,
and all such other documents (not of
record) as require the company
They Bhall sign all certificates of stock."
No notice of this by-law was brought horn"
to the plaintiff, and he nun not bound by it
Seo Potter on Corporation., Sec 1 13. Tho
President and Treasurer were resident at
Oahu, and the bouVs of the Company
were there kept. The plantation wis on Hawaii.
The evidence shone that the practice
of the Company was for the President and
Treasurer to execute all nrillen including
leases aud that no actual authority
nasghen to the manager or acting manager
to execute leases like the one in suit. Hut the
by-law does not prohibit it. Whether the
lease was binding on the defendant depends on
whether its execution was within the apparent
scoe of Johnson's authority . Hew as acting
manager, in charge of a largo plantation. Xo
notice is shown to plaintiff ol any local trustees
appointed or acting. Johnson assumed to sign
for the defendant. He was their general agent,
aud I shall hold that tho execution ol this
leaso was within tho apparent scops of his
authority, and the lease was bin ling on defendant.
See Potter on Corporations, Sections 12S9.
If I should le overruled in this conclusion,
at all etcnts, Johnson had authority sufficient
to uphold his verba lease to plaintiff for a
year, and the defendant was bound allenstfor
that term. Seo Taylor's Landlord and Tenant
Plaintiff had a right to assume that Johnson
could let him into possession and authorize
him lo build as he did. Plaintiff acted on that
assumption, and ente'red and built the house,
for tho value of which ho brings suit. Johnson
assumed the right to make the loaso as he
did. If ho had no such right it operated as a
fraud on the plaintiff. What Johnson did was
at icast licenso to Akiona to enter and build,
and the defendant is estopped from denying it.
Tlie defendant's high officers cannot remain in
Honolulu inactive, when valuable erections are
made on their land, with the knowledge of
their acting manager, and on bis authority,
and afterwards deny his authority, and appropriate
the erections, and rfo (t jiay for
Seo Smith's leading cases, Vol. 3, pp. iGG
and 570, and cases cited. Upon tho foregoing
grounds I hold that when theinstrument dated
May C, 16S2, was made, the plaintiff, when he
should remove from the premises leased was
entitled to pay for the house ho had built
thereon. This was a valuable right. The
paper did not say that he released it. It was
couched in general terms and the plaintiff cannot
bo supposed to have intended to release it.
If it was so intended it should have been expressed,
under well settled mice of law.
Tho right to compensation for the building
was the plaintiff's when he was ejected from
the land. The right of removal if the plaintiff
had it, was a separate one. His right to recover
here was not lost by his non removal of
tho building before he was ejected. He can
recover its value upon the facts stated and
proved. Upon those facts it appears that the
building cost one thousand dollars.
Tho plaintiff may have judgment for one
thousand dollars against defendants with costs.

the economical and commercial circumstances
of the island of Cuba, from 1661 down to the
beginning of 1661, have taken such an unfavorable
shape, that without exaggeration,
general ruin may be predicted. Any single
one of the several causes of decay would Le
sufficient to stop the forward development of
the island. The civil war of ten years, the
high rate of labor after emancipating the

Justry. At present the European markets
are virtually closed to Cuban sugar. In the
province of Puerto Principe the production of
sugar has ceased completely, in that of Cuba it
is strongly affected, and iu Santa Clara it is
near Us cessation. The dues on sagar production
consist of two per cent or tho net profits
of a plantation, air percent municipal
ones, and the export duty of about $1 per
bocoy of 1,100 pounds. The duty is estimated
equal to thirty per cent of the et value.
troin 1671 to ls83 the production of sugar
shrunk from C81 ,000 tons to 100,337" tons; the
export, from 617,367 tons to 108,225 tons; that

Tho Newoll Universal Mill Co, ot Now
York liaa introduced a sngar shredder tisod
on Governor AVarmontli's plantation in
Louisiana, which is thns described in tho
Tima-Dmocml: "Wo found tho shredder
about 100 feet from tho mill. Its construction
is as simple as il is effective. Two
shafts, with corrngatod cones, tho elevations
of ono fitting into tho depressions of
tho other, and ono of tho shafts revolving
to the right at tho rato of 300 revolutions
per minuto, nnd tho other to tho left at tho
rate of 100 revolutions per minute, effectually
accomplish the shredding of tho
cane. Tho cano so shredded enters tho
threo roller mill, from which it passes as
nsual to the supplementary mill. Tho
bagasso is so perfectly dry that tho blower
generally applied in tho bagasso furnace
has been dispensed with as unnecessary,
since tho bagasse burns completely without
its use. Wo were informed bv Mr.
Fink, the gentleman in chargo of tho
summer, tnat uie only reason vrny tho
shredder was set so far from tho mill was
that Gov. Warmonth did not have entire
confidence in its success. Tho proper
place for tho shredder is just in front of
tho three-roller mill, and tho calculation
now is that in tho hundred-foot carrier
from tho shredder to tho mill, about 3 per
cent, of tho juice is lost Notwithstanding
this, tho results riven and carefnllv
watched nnd corroborated by Mr. Spencer,
ono ot rot. iley'8 assistants, now located
at tho plantation in charge of a Govern
ment laboratory aro as follows: Tho jnico
extracted from 100 pounds of cano is from
78 to 80 per cent; tho amount of Migar
obtained from a ton of cane up to about
therniddloof December, was 182 pound",
while by former best known results from
fivo roller mills moro than CS per cent of
juico has never been known to bo extracted,
and 145 pounds of sugar per ton of cano
has hitherto been considered incredible.
"From tho above results, practically demonstrated,"
continued Mr. Studniezka;
" there remains no doubt at all that tho
sugar industry of Louisiana is not in
danger of being abandoned. I havo for
tho past six or seven years, been a strong
advocate of the belief that from 200 to
250 pounds aro practically obtainable
from a ton of sugar cane, and I havo nover
shaken hands moro cordially with Governor
Warmonth than when ho informed
me of tho yield of his sugar cano by the
nbovo method. On his plantation" tho
nverago yield of cano per acre, so far as
harvested last year, is twenty-one tons.
His sugar house will bo in operation for
two or threo weeks yet, and ho will bo
moro than happy to show his unprecedented
results to any ot his fellow planters.
Oar visitors wero greatly pleased
with their excursion, and it may also
prove of interest to your readers to know
that Mr. Taylor, the engineer; Mr.
McDonald, tho inventor of tho hydraulic
pre&snro regulator; Mr. Tilden, of Whitney's
Foundry, and Mr. Murphy of llencs
eey's, were of tho party, and their friends
will no doubt bo glad to havo their viows
on this subject. Finally, permit mo to
call tho attention of your readers to a
very encouraging fact as to the condition
of beet 6iigar industry of Austria- I was
informed moro than two months sinco by
my brother, employed by tbo Bodencredit
Geselshaft, of l'rague, Austria, that this
institution, ono of the strongest bank:, of
Austria, was about to fail, and that I ho
only reason of their calamity was the
largo advances mado by them to beet
sugar factories and to beet sugar farmers.
Inasmuch, as I havo lately seen a cablegram
announcing tho failure of this bank,
I need not have any hesitation in giving
tho above details now. Let tho Louisiana
planters raise more cano to the acre, better
juico in their cane, and extract all tho
jnico they harvest, not imertanyof tho
EUgar in their sugar houses, and they can
compelo as sugar producers with the
world. Tho outlook is a hopeful one."
An Outraged Industry.
Two weeks ago we itriutcd ratios.,. ,
a stick ofcandy was somewhat conspicuous.
This stick of candy was labeled with
tho names of its ingredients. Tho ingredients
were of au unwholesome sort, ior tho stick of
candy was of tho kind that is sold to our children
in this great and enlightened city. And
one of the ingredients on our list was glucose.
That brought out tho gentleman from the
glucoso district. Ho called upon us and explained
that his glucose was not the
of sugar, but a respectable and healthful
product, lie brought with him a rcort of
tho National Academy of Sciences, w hich gave
glucose an excellent character- Ho furthermore
requested us to publish tho report. When
we print the JVetr Fori .Directory and the Con.
ffrosional Jtecord by way of a supplement to
J"ucl, wo shall take pleasure in complying
with his request. At present tho pressure en
our columns is too great.
However we aro willing to accept the dictum
of tho National Academy of Sciences. If the
National Academy of Sciences thinks that
glucoso is all right, all right it is Glucose in
mado from starch, aud starch is a harmless
and inoffensive article. We have known men
lo wear it next to their breasts until it utterly
disappeared; aud they never seemed to suffer
But tho gentleman from tho glucoso district,
instead of stopping right there, aud leaving us
under the impression that glucoso was a much
maligned manufacture, proceeded to spoil his
whole effect by leaving us a bottle of glucose
and a hunk of corn sugar for us to sample.
We will admit that he got even with us in
this way if he was angry with us ho got in
his fino work or deadly revenge; hut ho didn't
succeed in popularizing glucoso in this offico.
Wo tried the corn sugar first on tho Goat
Editor, acd he said it tasted like stalo cocoa-nut
pie. Well, it did. IJut w hen the Society
Editor got hold of it, ho said is suggested to
him a combination of a clay pipe and a stick
of chewing gum. And wo all realized tho
force of his characterization. When the Assyrian
Pup took an incautious bite of it, ho
looked as though he thought it tasted like tallow
candles. If that was his idea, ho was
probably dead right-
Wo tried the glucoso on the gentlemen of
tho artistic staff. Wo told them it was a now
form of semi-solidified and scentless gin, and
they eagerly grasped at it. Those who cared
to converse upon the subject afterward said
that they did not hanker after vaseline aa a
Theso aro the results of the experiments in
glucoso eating conducted by Puck's Academy
of Sciences. Tho experiments will not be renewed.
We havo have some glucose left. It
is probably healthful; to Bomo it may be a delicacy.
But it is improhablo that any member
of the .' staff will ever become victims In

TOWED., USES, TBADE.
The manufacture of dynamite, though of comparatively
recent origin, has assumed tho proportions
of au important industrr, and a large
amount of capital is invested iu il. For blasting
rocka and ores the new material possesses
many advantages over Its
distinguishing properties arc great power and
rapidity of action, and by means of it many
operatmus cau be performed that wero formerly
difficult or altogether impossible. By an
agreement which was recently mado by the
dynamite companies of the United Kingdom
aud the continent tlio trade has acquired
something like a new leaso of life. A ruinous
competition has been stopped and a return-has
been made to remunerative rates.
Alfred Nobel was the inventor of dynamite
or giant powder. He had been usim; ordinary
powder in blasting operations in Swedish
quarries, and found the work slow in progressing.
Acquainted with the nature of
conveyed the idea of soaking common
gunpowder with it before blasting. Tho effect
produced was very great, but this only led the
way to the greater invention dynamite
finely pulverized bilcx, or silicious ashes, or
infusorial earth saturated with about three
times its weight of nitro-glycerine, and constituting
a mass resembling damp Graham
flour. The poirer of this compound can only
be estimated theoretically, but its uses are
manifold, and do not need to be specified.
Nobel's original invention of dynamite is simply
nitro-glycerine held io an absorbing body.
Nitro-glycerine, in its fluid slate, is an oil produced
by the mixture of nitric acid, sulphuric
acid and glycerine, and is liable to explosion
wheu transported in that state. Mr. Nobel
changed this into a powder, by which the
is cushioned, thus making it
entirely safe in transportation or handling. As
a blasting agcnt,tho fluid would be impracticable,
as it could not be used in horizontal or
upward boreholes,, excent by putting it in tin
tubes or somo such applicant. The strength
ol tho dynamite or giant powder depends entirely
on the amount of nitro-glycerine used,
and as it is a very difficult matter to tut this,
some manufacturers take advantage of this,
using less, so that the power of the article is
About ten years ago the Nobel's Explosives
Company tho pioneer firm was started in
tho west of Scotland. The Nobel's Company
which has an annual output of 1,500 tons per
annum, was followed by dynamite factories in
England; Germany, Franco, Italy and Spain.
In the United Kingdom there aro now three
factories, and theso turn ont annually about
2,000 lons of dynamite valued at 200,000.
The Rhenish Company, which has factories at
Cologno and other German towns, is however,
tho largest dynamite undertaking in tho
world, its annual output amounting to 2,500
tons. That the British makers have experienced
keen competition from thcir.conlincntal
rivals may bo inferred from the fact that during
1663, 1,000 tons and during 1681, 1,500
tons wero importod into the United Kingdom.
Owing lo tho keen rivalry which prevailed
amongst the companies engaged in tho trade,
dynamite fell steadily in prico from 150 to
as low as C5 a ton in somo districts. Such a
stato of matters could not continue long, and
therefore no snrprise was felt when it was announced
in November last that the British and
continental companios had agreed toadvince
tho price of dynamite to a uniform level. At
present tho price ranges from 130 to X1C0 a
ton, according to the quantity taken, and tho
result of the combination has proved highly
beneficial to the shareholders of tho various
companies. Tho agreement is working admirably,
and the severe competition which prevailed
in several district has been checked
and higher rates established. Considerable
quantities of dynamite are exported from Europe
to the United States and Canada, and
practically the trade is for tho present at Icast
confined to Great Britain, Germany, France,
Italy and Spain. The trade is, howevcr,in its
infancy, and in cnurso of time it may bo expected
to cover a wider area and tu assume
much larger dimensions. Bnitlstrcctt.
"Wrecks of 188-
The statistics furnished by Llojds concerning
the wrecks during 1851, show that as a
result of tho absence of vtormy or hurricane
weather, there were 111 less actual shipwrecks
reported than in tho year 1833. Hut although
tho shipping disasters havo not been so disastrous
iu consequence of weather influences,
other causes have been on tho increase viz ,
losses by collision.. These are alarming in
the raauncr they multiply year by year. Tho
number of disasters by this cause during tho
year is nearly 200, against bmaller numbers
in previous years, and of thoso during last
years sunk ny this cause over 120 resulted in
actual loss. More than 130 British vessels
were sunk by collision, the majority being
lost off the coast of Great Britain, but some of
theso latter were recovered. The total actual
shipwrecks w ere 1539, representing 77G British
vessels. Off tho coast of England, Scotland
and Ireland, 359 went down, of which 322
wero British owned. The previous year 522
vessels went down off tho British coasts, of
which 111 vorc British vessels. Tlio Ggurcs
given below show a decrease throughout for tho
last fivo years, which ii explained by the exceptional
weather during 1651. The following

Increnao or Cancer
If tho data of the Registrar Uencraal's reports
arc correct, cancer is steadily increasing
in England, and the rato of increase is augmenting.
Thus, during tho ten years 1850-1839
the increase in tho number of deaths
from this disease was 2000, showing an
iucrcasc of about 200; from 1660 to 1669
tho number of deaths was 60,019, and the
average annual increase 218; and from 1670
to 1679, 111,301 deaths occurred, wilfi an
annual incrcaso of 320. Dr. Charles Moore attempted
tusliow, in a book published iu 1803,

its incrcaso was an accompaniment of the improved
economical condition and vitality of
tho British people It abounds whero the
conditions aro ordinarily most favorable to
health, and moro among tho rich than among
tho poor. According to a French observer,
about 10 per cent, of the wealthy classes and 7
percent, of the poorer classes are afflicted
with cancer. Thodiseise. according to Dr.
Crisp, also prevails among animals, more frequently

England's Source, of Revenue-England
collects customs on but fifteen
articles, and theso aro chiefly articles
which sho does not produce, so that tho
tax is strictly for revenue and not for protection,
going into tho Treasury and not
into tho pockets of individuals. England's
revenue from import duties, which
amounts to about 20 per cent of her total
rcvenuo receipts,' is raised mainly from
tho tariff on spirits, tobacco and tea; and
sho collects about of her rcvenuo
from the excise, a tax which tho protectionists
in this country aro so anxious to
abolish. Louif. Courier Journal.
