A demurrer was sustained sad
plaintiff was allowed to amend the
complaint on a former hearing. The
-amendment was the subject of the
demurrer which Tailed yesterday.
Plaintiffs represent the larger
saloon Interests of the city, paying
J1W0 each a year for retailing liquor
of all kinds. Under a law of the Ter
ritory the Treasurer issues license 1

The first demurrer was sustained
to a great extent en the ground that
the pbtliitlns had failed to show that
they were suffering any damages by
reason of the act of Treasurer Wright
ia issuing the Primo licenses.
Still More Inconsistent.
Judge Silllman appeared for Treas
urer Wright yesterday morning.
"It is set forth." said Judge SilH
bwb, "that the petitioners applied to
Treasarer Wright for a license at
$860 per year to sell malt liquors
made in Honolulu, when they already
held a general license to sell any
kind of liquors, the Honolulu malt
"The petitioners were prevented
from paylag $160 more for a license
to do something which they already
had the right to do, under a license
for which they paid ?lfl00 per year.
"This would seem to lay the foun
dation for s mandamus proceeding
to compel Treasurer Wright to issue
die license which was refused, rather
than to prevent him Issuing malt li

and for hours watched for the appear-1

The plot had been given out and the
mate, instead of going on board by
way of the railroad wharf, engaged
a boat at the boat landing and ws
rowed across the bay to his vessel.

to be a Union man. Some time ago
he was second mate of the barkentine
