BT THE COUliT. What is the term of ser
vice for which the laborer en rased under this
contract Is it for threo years, I. e. from tth
of September, 18S2, to 0th of September, 1865?
or is it for thirty-six months of twenty-six
days each, in all nine hundred and thirty-six
daj s? Wo think that the lamruatrQ of the con
tract suuicicDUy answers this question. The,
iiuieu iransiauon oi tne couiract reads that,
"the said party of the second nart will dnlr
and faithfully ierfomi such lawful and proper
iaior as no may be directed to perform, under
Ihe auspices of the Board of Immiirration for
and during the space of three years next suc
ceeding tho date of the commencement of such
service after arrival in tho Hawaiian King
dom' Another and more literal translation
of this part of the contract appears in the copy
quoted inJull in tho earlier part of this de
cision. The terra of this contract then is three
years, commencing from the day on which the
laborer begins to work. The time when this
contract ends is made'cerlaio by the statement
when the term is to begin. Three years from
a given date would exnire when three calendar
3 ears hate elapsed aiDco this date. This is
tiiviumiu. kuv i-vucirucuou vi leases aim an
oilier contracts and wo aeo no reason wljy it
should not trr'r to a labor contract. If the
lauorcr arieea to labor durmr all ILa time
covered hj a term or three jeare, no time lic
ing stated when tho labor was to begin, and it

Much stress is laid in argument npon the
clause mat tne Jioaru oi Immigration contract.

every month of twenty-six days service, faith

and any less number of days with a propor-

when his employer must settle with him and
pay him whatever wages may be due. We
think it would be unwarrantable to transfer the
language employed for the sole purpose of
making clear the amount of wages lo be paid,
and the limes of payment lo another part of
tho contract, iu onlcr lo define the quantum of
labor whii.h tho employee is to fnllfil.
Itiaargacd that as each year consists of
llii ce liunurea ami eixly-nve days, from which
deduct fifiy-two Suuda,313 dayaof work
xcmain, upon which the laborer agrees lo work
auo tnereiore a year's work will not be fulfilled
unless 313 das of actnal labor have been
executed. But a day is but a subdivision of
time, and u could be argued with equal co
gency thai as each day consists of say ten
working Lours, therefore a day's work would
not be performed if only nine and a half hours
aork was fulfilled. An hour might be still
further subdivided into minatcs and seconds,
and each delinquency tacked on to ihe term.
Bnlwe do net think that any such detailed
account of time was contemplated by the con
tract, ine laborer is bound by this contract
to present himself, ready lo perform such labor
as be may be directed during twenty-six work
ing days of each month, and to work ten hours
a day in the field, aud it in the mill, twelve
hours lo entitle him to the fnll waces of nine
doll.rs, unless prevented by sickness or other
vaiu excuses. e think that it was contem
plated when the contract was made that the
laborer, as a human beinr, might be ill at some
time during the conlinnanco of the contract
The cruploicr engages "to supply him with
proper medical attendance in case of sickness."
It seems to be conceded that the laborer ia to
be lodged asd fed during sickness. Whether
w ag;s are to be paid to him daring sickness
is not raised in this case. Bnt as the laborer
can only receive nine dollars when twenty-six
days of labor have been performed, we pre
sume that be could not claim wages while un
able to work on account cf sickness. But as
we have above said, when the calendar years
have expired which end the terra contracted
for, tho days lost through sickness cannot be
lacked on to the term, to be worked out there
after. Cases of hardship might occur to the
employer as when, as suggested by counsel
for plaintiff, a man might contract for one
year's service npon an agreement in form
similar to the one we are 'considering, aud be
ill cleT.n and a half months. But it would be
a csserof greater hardship to tho laborer, if,
after snch a long illness, he would have lo
work an additional year after his contract had
expired. So also Sundays and holidays rec
ognized by the Government, upon which days
the laborer is specially exempted from labor
and consequently for which he receives no
wages, are not to be taken account of and ad
ded to the lerm of three rears, and allcrwards
discharged in labor. If this could be done the
privilege of not working on those special uaya
would amount to nothing to the laborer, and
so far as he was concerned, it would be value
less to have thia exemnlion mentioned in the
contract, for Sundays and Government holi
days stand in this contract, on Ihe same foot
ing, and if the laborer can be required to make
up the days of lsbor lost to tho employer by
Sundays and holidays, it would Ik no privilege
to the laborer.
This leads us to the last point to be consid
ered, namely the penal remedies which the er
ployer has under our laws, against the laborer.
By the labor law s as they now exist. Sec. 1119
Compiled Laws, if the person bound lo service,
wiliuuy absents uimseu irotu suco scmce,
without leave from his master, he roar bo ap
prehended by Ihe warrantor a police or dis
trict justice, and restored to his master and
compelled to serve tho remainder of the time
for which be originally contracted. By the
original law (IS59) the laborer conld be com
pelled to serve not to exceed doublo the time
of his absence. The Act of 1882 only author
izes a sentence to make up the time lost by
the absence of lbs laborer. By Sec. 1120, it
the person bound to scrvico refuses to serve
when ordered by tho magistrate lo do so, or
refuses to work according to hi contract, lie
mav be committed to prison to remain at bard
labor until he conseuta to serve according to
law. It he, after having returned to service
pursuant to a magistrate's order, again wil
fully absents himself without leave, "ho is
liable to a fine not to exceed S3 for ihe first
offence, and not to exceed $10 for every sub
sequent oflence. A wilful absence wo suppose

iflbe laborer is unable from illncs lo piecnt

place of labor, he is from illness, unable to
work, ho ia not derelict, his absenco fruin
work is not willful, and he caunut be com
pelled to make up ihe lime ol absence lo his
master. If the weather be such that it would
b detrimental to the health of the laborer to
work out oi doors, or so that it wonld not be
profitable to tho master to proceed with out
door work, his absence from work would not
bo willful, and though lie receives no pay for
the dsys thus lost, he cannot be compelled by
the judgment of a magistrate to make up this
But the case is put to us of a willful absence
from woik without leave of the master, for
which no arrest is made aud no adjudication
of a magistrate obtained, but the servant
agrees that his absence waa without legal ex
cuse and the number of days so lost in each
month is regularly entered up at the end ot
each month and agreed orally by the scrvent
as correct. The agreement to make up this
lost lime is implied, wo presume, from the
laborer's assent that the number of days lost
is correct in number. Can this agreement be
enforced? We think not. It is a new agree
ment. It is not in writing and docs not con
form to tho statute in other respects. By
virtue of this now oral agreement to inako up
lost time the servant is not compellable by the
magistrate to serve. The written contract be
fore us does not contain such a stipulation.
His liability to service must flow, if at all,
from the original contract. We aro ol the
opinion that if a laborer who has absented
himself from work wilfully and without leave,
returns again to his master's service and no
notice is takeu of it and the master does nut
obtain an adjudication that the absence was
without legal excuse and a sentence that the
Iol lime must be worked out, he cannot after
the contract has expired, compel the laborer
to work out such arrears. The master must
be considered in law as having waived the
It becomes ncccsoary to review former deci
sions of this Court which are cited by plain
tiffs counsel as decisive of this case. These
are Wood vs. llool'ma 3 llawn. 102 (1809.)
Wooil vs. Alia, 3 Hawn. 418 (1673.) In the
first case tho master claimed that a judgment
to the effect that tho servant should work
eight months penal time was not satisfied by
the Bervant continuing iu his masters service
for eight months, he having worked ouly 113
days during this period aud not the full score
of 208 dsys. But the case was decided against
tho master on the ground that he had on his
part Tailed to fulfil I the contract as to payment
of wages. Remarks or the majority or tho
Court that the judgment was not illegal though
it imposed a term or service beyond ono year
after the end ol the original term or service,
were not necessary lo the decision or Ihe case
and must be treated as ooifcr dicta.
The second case. Here tho servant had
contracted to serve five years, but when about
baU ol the time had expired, he was sentenced
ror a crime to be imprisoned at hard labor for
fivo years. This seutence he had served and
his master claimed his services ror the re
mainder or the original term of the contract
under tho law as it then stood which authoriz
ed a magistrate, ii the person bound toservice
had wilfully absented himself from such
service, lo impose an additional term of labor
not exceeding double the timo of absence, but
such additioual term of service shall not ex
tend hi ond one year after the original lerm
of service. The majority or the Court held
that the lapse or time duriug the imprison
ment was not a bar to tho penal enforcement
or the contract it it result froin the servants
own act. Much ol.tbe reasoning of the ina-
ioritr of the Court is against the view taken
by us in tne case beiore us. liul mat case
was upon the construction of a statute now re
pealed the latter part of Sec. 1119 or the Civil
Code, which authorized the imposing of an
additional term of service in caso the original
term had not been fulfilled by the servant.
That questiou docs not arise in the case le
fore us. Here we are to construe the con
tract itself, not Ihe staluto which is invoked
in its aid.

The IfOniaiana Lottery.
Few people Lave any idea of the thous
ands of dollars which are being taken from
California weekly by this wretched swin
dle. It is denounced in New Orleans as a
despicable fraud, it is forbidden by tho
United States to transact its business
through the mails, in fchort, it is an out-and-out
cold-blooded swindle, entrapping
those who need tho money for their backs
or their stomachs, robbing children of their
shoes in short, grinding the face of por
erty by diverting scanty earnings to the
pocxeis oi tnose wnoconunci tne attair.
A square lottery is so bad in its influence
and effects that it is hard to find words to
fitly characterize it, but this blot npon tho
good name of Xew Orleans is declared by
residents ot tnat city and by the local
press to bo an uninitigatea client, not pay
m? the nremiums it announces, not draw
ing fairly, bnt is demoralizing the city and
the State by robbing its jksot, moving the
people from industry to illusion, that its
private promoters may be enriched.
One of the methods of management
wiucu uiaa.es uju irauu inure specious is
the parading of names well known through
out the country as responsibility for its
management, when they really havo noli
ing to do with it except lease out their
names to act as a poultice upon popular
credulity. This aspect of the institution is
brought out clearly in a dispatch which
was received irom x'lmadeipma on a re
cent occasion, as follows :
"The Timet in a leader says : General
Beauregard, who, with General Early,
barters his name and a few hours' work

for a very large salary, rises to explain in
response to an editorial in the lima of
XoTember 26, reminding Generals Beaure
gard and Early that the grand prize of
$150,000 of the drawing of December 18,
1ES1, although published as drawn by
ticket io. torn, part ol wnicn bcket was
sold in San Francisco, was not drawn at
all and was never paid. General Beaure
gard admits that his name is used with
that of Genearl Early to testify to the
drawings, out he disclaimed responsibilt
ty for the foot-note added by his employ
ers, giving the location of the supposed
drawer. The excuse of the foot-note is a
discreditable quibble. If Beauregard and
Early were determined to maintain their
self-respect, they would, have ended the
foot-note fraud lonir airo. No information
of .the fraud would not nave reached the
public at all, but for the fact that a suit in
