PALME PART OF
i at HONOLULU GIT!
(From Thursday's Advertiser.)
Talmyra Island is a part of the City
and County of Honolulu, according to
a petition filed yesterday in tho land
court by Circuit Judge Henrj E.
Cooper. Though it may be a long way
off, and tfot visited bv the local police.
Palmyra is under the jurisdiction of
Mayor i'crn ana tho llanawnki board
of supervisors. Cooper's petition is directed
to showing, however, that it is
also under the jurisdiction of the Territory
of Hawaii, and is a part of the
Territory, and by way of settling, once
for alj, as far as the courts here can
sottle it, his ownership of the island, he
has begun proceedings to get title from
tho land court.
Palmyra is not overcrowded, but tho
blank forms of tho petition for n Tor-
rens title require a petitioner to state
tho "names and full address" of the
ttceupnnts of the land. Cooper supplies
this information with tho brief phrase
"Territory of Hawaii." The court will
have to consider the Territory as the
names and aiUtresses" of tho oecu
pants of tho land.
Tho application Is unique in the
I tory of tho land court, for no one has
over Doiore appneu lor a title w nn
island so far away from tho court.
Cooper certifies that so far as known
there arc no mortgages on the island
and he Joav?a entirely blank that clause
of tho form for application for titles
which requires him to state tho names
of owners of "lands adjoining."
Ncone expected that there would be
a mortgage on Palmyra, and Cooper
could find no way to fill out the clause
relating to "fands adjoining."
" Tho petition, of possible international
significance should the status tf Palmyra
become an Issne, is in the main as
'"" "Territory' 6f Hawaii.
'Td tbd'nbn. W. L. Whitney, Judge of
p the Court of Zand Registration:
"I, the undersigned, hereby apply to
have the land hereinafter described
brought under the operation and provisions
of Chapter 154 of the BeviBod
Laws of Hawaii as amended, and to
have the title therein registered and
confirmed. And I declare that I am
