TUESDAY. : JANUARY 3, 1893.
THE JUDICIARY ACT.
All appeals upon questions of
law, exceptions and similar matters
Trill go before the Supreme
The Supreme Court Trill consist
of three justices, as at present.
The justices now holding office b
the law will continue to exercise
the functions of the Supreme Court
as set forth in the Act. Their
jurisdiction includes the power to
issue writs of mandamus, certiorari,
prohibition, habeas corpus,
etc., and generally the powers of
the Court are about as at present,
excepting original hearings. The
terms of the Supreme Court are to
be held in Honolulu, four times
each j'ear, beginning the third
Mondays of March, June, 'September
and December. Special terms
may also be held and the terms
may continue for eighteen days.
An important provision of the
law is that no one can be compelled
to go to a hearing except before a
full bench. In 'case of the inability
of any justice to attend on account
of sickness, absence or disqualification
for any reason, his
place may be filled for the time being
by any of the Circuit Judges
or by any competent and disinterested
member of the bar. Whenever
points in any case arise
which might decide the" question
which have not been argued, the
matter shall not be decided until
both sides have an opportunity -for
arguing such new point.
The matter of clerks for the Judiciary
Department is well arranged
by the new Act, which
provides for a clerk of the Judiciary
Department and as many deputy
clerks as the business may require.
This makes all of the clerks in each
circuit accountable and responsible
to the chief clerk, whose office is
in Honolulu ; but clerks of the Circuit
Courts may be removed for
cause b the respective judges of
Careful provision is made for accurate
records of the business of the
Court, which, if carried out, will
provide for- better statistics than
have heretofore been available.
The matter of appeals and exceptions
is also carefully provided
for, the rights of parties being well
The original Act presented by
the Commission was changed in
some more or less important details
by consultations of the Judiciary
Committee of the present
Legislature with members of the
Bar, and afterwards by amendments
in the House. It was provided
that all of the terms of the
Second Circuit should be held in
Wailiiku, which is unquestionably
in the interest of all parties concerned,
but the principle of "you
tickle me and I'll tickle you" is
too strong in the House for this
sensible provision to carry, in
consequence of which a term
of the Second Circuit is continued
at Lahaina. Something of the
same principle probably permitted
the change on Hawaii, which put
one term in Kohala and another in
Honokaa, but it is quite possible
that the change may be in the interest
of all parties concerned as
Waimea is a lonely, quiet town re.
moved from the centers of population,
but it may require the build
ing of new court houses and jails,
and certainly Kohala is pretty well
removed from Kau, while Honokaa
is a place difficult of approach until
a railroad shall have been built to
Tnirv, and there are no houses of
A careful examination of the
above extracts from the Act will

the law, which will be interesting
to the public who require the assistance
of the Courts from time to

portant of which takes the appointment
of the Magistrates from the
Cabinet and Supreme Court and
places ' it with the Cabinet and
Sovereign. Perhaps this change
will not injure the service, but it is
a return to a system which was so
pernicious under the old regime
that the law was passed making
the Magistrates more directly
amenable to the Supreme Court by
giving said Court a voice in their
Another important Act has been
passed relating to jury trial' and to
the drawing of juries. As the Judiciary
Act has been bound in
pamphlet form for easier and more
rapid distribution, it would have
been well if the other important
Acts, relative to trials, could
have been bound at the same tjme
for like distribution, for it is yet in
the indefinite future as to when
the laws of the session will ever be
THE PANAMA SCANDAL.
The news from France in regard
to the Panama scandal is somewhat
disquieting and seems to indicate
the approach of a political crisis.
With every fresh day fresh discoveries
are made, drawing new individuals
into the great web of fraud
which the Canal Co. seems to have
woven around newspapers, public
officials, and members of tlie
Chamber. The venality of the
Paris press is well known and nothing
surprises about their dishonest
collusion except the smallness of
the bribes which were accepted.
The idea was generally entertained
that de Lesseps himself was not
implicated in any of the dishonorable
transactions of the company,
but it is now stated that he is to
be prosecuted as well as one of his
sons. Admirers of the famous
engineer everywhere will hope that
his fame rnay be cleared from every
imputation of a stain, as was that
of General Grant, on a similar
The crisis in French politics is
due in a large measure not so
much to the Panama scandal as
to the alarming growth of social
discontent, which has found expression,
of late, in an increasing
number of outrages. It would be
a mistake to infer that the body
of the French people were infected
with the poison of crazy social
theories. Such is by no means
the case. The French bourgeoisie
is industrious, prudent and prosperous,
,and can muster as much
common sense per capita as the
middle class ot any country in
Europe. It is Paris which is the
centre of anarchistic agitation as
it has been of every revolutionary
movement since 1789, and the activity
of these elements is simply a
fresh illustration pf the unhealthy
predominance of the capital in
French politics. The republic in
France is considered stronger and
safer than it has ever been before,
and we do not believe that
it is seriously imperilled by
the present emergency. The
real issue there as elsewhere is no
longer between the Republic and
the Monarchy, but between the
"fourth estate" and the classes
above it. .Socialists are very indifferent
to the form of government.
What they are interested
in is the re-organization of society,
and the irrepressible conflict of the
future will be waged about the
latter only. The elements of this
conflict .are immanent in the industrial
conditions of the age, and are
little affected by forms of government.
Paris is the barometer of
Europe, and registers before Berlin
or St. Petersburgh or. London
the indications of the coming
storm. But this exhausts its
function, and those who know the
French character do not believe
that the nation stands as good a
chance to weather the gale as Germany
Oxe of the worst features of
political life in .Hawaii is the constant
emergence of the race idea.
Appeals to it in one form or
another are made twenty times a
day, and, with a few rare exceptions,
none of the foreign members
of the House have the courage to
ignore the color line. The bill in
regard to school-teachers, which
has just passed its second reading,
is an illustration of the feeling of
jealous' of the foreigner which
comes to the surface on every possible
occasion. We believe fully
in the principle of employing
in the public schools,
whenever it is feasible, and will be
only too glad to see the places of
incapable or unworthy foreigners
filled by most deserving eoiis of
the soil. The principle is one,
however, which the Board bears-
constantly in mind, making application
of it whenever possible ; and
the attempt to limit their choice
in the lower grades to kamaainas
only is, in the last degree, inexpedient
Rep. , Kaavahi interrogated the
Ministers Friday with regard to
the failure of Her Majesty to sign
the bill relating to Chinese Immigration.
Article 4S of the Constitution
provides that a bill shall
become law without the signature
of the Sovereign if it be not returned
to the House within ten
days. This is just as regular and
legitimate a way of allowing an
Act to become a law as though it
received the Royal signature, and
there does not seem to be any occasion
to propound questions about
it. The Sovereign, by allowing a
bill to lapse in the manner indicated
does not obstruct the course
of legislation, or interfere in any
way with the expression of the
popular will, and there is no reason
why she should be compelled to
affix her signature to an Act
which she does not approve, as
long as her signature is not indispensable.
Indeed, we are disposed
to commend the action of Her
Majesty in this instance. It is a
natural method of expressing her
personal dissatisfaction with -measures
which she does not happen to
approve, and it should be used instead
of the veto for that purpose.
The House passed Thursday the
bill raising the duty on spirits
from $3 to $3.50 per gallon. This
is one of the best bills of the session,
and a large additional . revenue
is expected from it. It is a
well recognized principle all over
the world that the liquor' business
should be taxed as heavily as it
will bear, and Noble Cornwell, who
opposed the bill for some unknown
reason, committed a strange eccentricity
when he called for the ayes
The Minister . of Finance has
been compelled to introduce still
another bill "to further defray" the
expenses of the Legislative Session,
and perhaps another will be necessary
before prorogation day comes.
Rep. Nawahi seems to regard it as
a distinction for this body that it
will go down to history as a legislature,
which talked, more, cost
more and did less than any other
in the annals of Hawaii.
The House has at last made up
its mind to the necessity of night
sessions. These are doubtless
necessary, but a better way to
.shorten the session would be to
discourage the endless and
discussions and adopt 'a
further limit on debate.
Sunday School Exercises.
Last evening the Kaumakapili
Sunday School held special exercises
which proved to be very interesting
and enjoyable. Mrs. Dillingham
distributed rosettes and
picture cards to the scholars as rewards
of merit for faithful attendance.
Besides songs and recitations,
the little ones were amused
by gazing on a lighthouse, which
threw out a blaze of light. The
church was darkened for this portion
of the entertainment and the
effect was beautiful and startling.
The success of Chamberlain's Cough
Keniedy in effecting a speedy cure of
colds, croup and whooping cough has
brought it into great demand. Messrs.
Pontius & Son, of Cameron, Ohio, say
that it has gained a reputation second
to none in that vicinity. Jas. M.
Queen, of Johnston, W. Va., says it is
the best he ever used. B. F. Jones,
