It a Holds me very great pleasure t.i bear a itness to the sur
prising efficacy of ' Bogle's Hyperion Fluid." I bad occasion
to resort to it after losing so murh of my hair as to he almost
bald, owing to the influence of the climate, during my tour ia
tbe United States. Various much vaunted Hair Restoratives
which I had already tried having entirely failed, I wss advised
to test the value of Mr. Bogle's preparation. I used it dili
gently for some time, when to my great gratification my hair
assumed more than its former luxuriance. Hence I can both
from my own experience and that of my friends to whom I
have recommended its use most confidently advise the use of
the " Hyperion Fluid" to all who need the use of that which
shall restore, nourish, and beautify their hair. For these pur
poses, I am certain that it is unsurpassed and unsurpassable.

" Great Wizard of the North."

The Agent of Bogle's Hyperion Fluid having called on me
when I arrived here, I was delighted to find my old friend had
preceded me (I mean Hegle't Fluid.; My hair was falling off
ia thousand per day ; a short interview with my friend has
ainped the fall ; a few smart rubbing operations, performed by

HAWAIIAN LEGISLATURE, I860.
HOUSE OF NOBLES.
Seventh Dat, June 4 A communication was laid
before the Nobles by the President, which he had re
ceived from the Honolulu Chamber of Commerce, en
closing four resolutions passed by that body, bearing
on commercial questions.
Mr. Gregg said that although these resolutions did
not come iu the manner in which such mutters ought
to come bef ire a legislative body, yet he moved that
the resolutions be laid on the table and printed for tbe
information of the House, with a view to calling them
np on some future occasion for discussion and refer
ence. Mr. Wyllie seconded the motion, and took the occa
sion to say that the communication was an irregular
one, according to parliamentary rule. Communica
tions like this brought before the British Parliament
were invariably thrown cut, as coming, not as memori
al?, but as suggestions. He however thought that the
highly respectable gentlemen composing the Chamber
of Commerce intended no disrespect to the House.
Prince Kamehameha thought that as this document
was neither a petition nor a memorial, he would prefer
that the matter should lay over for the present.
The Pilot Fees bill came np on its second reading,
together with the amendments. It passed its second
reading, with a short debate, and was ordered to be
engrossed for a third reading to-morrow.
The bill to regulate the settlement of the estates of
deceased persons was read a first time. Adjourned.
Eighth Dat. June 5. The Joint Resolution appro
priating 8,000 for the expenses of the legislature of
1860, was parsed on its third readinz.
The Pilot Fees Bill passed a final reading.
The resolutions of the Houolulu Chamber of Com
merce were ordered to be printed for the use of tbe
The bill to regulate the estates of deceased persons
was taken up on its second reading, in Committee of
the Whole. Having gone through as far as the 177th
section the Committee rose.
Mr. Armstrong read a first time a bill to amend sec
tions 66 and 69 of the civil code in regard to the fees of
Ninth Dat, June 6. The Ncbl.s took up, on iu
second reading, the bill to amend sections 66 and 69 of
tbe civil Code in relation to Auctioneers.
The bill requires that each liccised auctioneer shall
deposite with the Minister of the Interior, a bond in the
penal sum of SI, 000, for the performance of the duties
required of him in his license. Also that any govern
ment officer authorized by law may sen, at auction with
out license, on government account, as well as the Mar
shal, Sheriffs, Constables, Executors, Administrators,
Guardians, &c. The bond does not interfere with the
nayment by the auctioneers of their per ccutage to the
government, but enforces the same.
Prince Kamehameha said that this vas a bill which
pertained lo the Interior Departmeut particularly.
The present working of the law in regard to auctioneers
was that the percentage fixed by law for the auctioneers
was charged by them on the sales in aduition to the reg
ular per centage, so that they paid nothing in fact for
their privilege, instead of as lormerly, and as was the
intention of the law.
Mr. Wyllie desired to know whether the law would
not conflict with treaty stipulations, so fur as govern
ment officers being allowed to sell by auction without
Mr. Bishop was of opinion that the business of auc
tioneers should be thrown open to general competition,
and be believed that such was the general opiuion of
the mercantile community. He would move to amend
sec. 64 so as to strike out he words " being Hawaiian
subjects," and also all after the words, " for which
they receive their licenses."
Mr. Wyll!e supported the motion. lie had always
supported this view of tbe case. He knew of no reason
why this particular branch of trade should be confined
or restricted to a few ; nor did he believe that tbe re
striction was an advantageous one to government on the
score of revenue, but the contrary.
Prince Kamehameha doubted the propriety of this
new measure. Whatever might be done ia Boston in
these matters, was no reason that the same should be
done here. He believed that in New York and London,
none but citizens or subjects could sell by auction.
AfVr some further discussion the Prince withdrew
this bill for the present
The bill to regulate the estates of deceased persona
was read a second time in Hawaiian. Adjourned.
Tenth Dat, June 7. The House went into Commit
tee of the Whole on the bill to regulate the estates of de
The Governor of Oahu moved to reject the bilL He
thought it was unnecessary.
So"c.idcd by Mr. Armstrong, who had inquired of
several of the judges, who considered that no necessity
was apparent for legislation on this subject at present.
Mr G-egg objtcted to the motion. Was this bill to
be rr jected on account of its length and the labor it re
quired In co.isider it r It was a bill required in all civ
ilized countries, und no uniformity could be had ia the
settlement o estates without such a law. At present
such settlements were altogether regulated by the courts
and tbe lawyers the rights of heirs were not fixed fully
Alter debute, in which Mr. Wyllie moved to refer to
the Judges of the Supreme Court, and Prince Kameha
meha objected on the ground that it would be mixing
up the legislative and the judicial functions, contrary
to the constitution.
The bill was referred to a select committee, consisting
of Messrs Kamehameha, Haalelea, Ii, Armstrong and
HOUSt. OF REPRESENTATIVES.

Mr. Knadsen. Chairman of tbe Committee on Elec
tions, presented a majority report upon the Waialaa
contested election case, finding tbe election illegal, and
reccnuKtiding the House to declare Mr. Nauii ana's seat
vac -int. Report signed by all but Mr. Kipi, who pre
sented a minority report, recommending to lay the pe
tition &gainststbe member, upon the table. Ordered
for Committee of the whole to-day. Mr. Naukana
presented a resolution appropriating 8500 for sal

Referred to the Judiciary Committee. Mr. Baldt ,a
gave notice that he should introduce a bill touching the
-1 paction of marked ccuples. Mr. Green introduced
u r-solu'jn to troint a Committee to enquire if there
conld be i ..'vt'wn in the expense of any department
uf Gon nnt. t 'tbont detriment to same. Aiter dis
cussion, in whicL Mr. Webster moved that it be laid on
ti e table the motion was adopted. Tbe Waialaa election
care w&h t.-l en up in committee of the whole and the
reports rend with the evidence at length npon which
the came r .ri founded. The District Justice, who had
presided at the election, testified that he had excluded
the votes cf old men, the infirm excused from road tax,
and school .eachers. This testimony wss confirmed by
several witnesses. One other of tbe inspectors testified
that he had refjscd to sign the certificate of election
untH be w9 threatened to be given in charge of a for
eign polieeuan if he continued ohatinata Mr. Webster
moved, a? the irtmony was quite lergthy, that tha
sume be f ruH, i nit members might have opportunity
to examine it clotty. Mr. Green wished to have the
witnesses examined before tbe committee of tbe House
as the most satisfactory way of disposing of the whole
subject. Mr. Chamberlayne said that there were rules
by which the House should be governed in such cases.
Votes might be rejected by Inspectors, either throagh
ignorance or with a corrupt or false motive If Totes
had been rejected throagh ignorance, the election should
not be set aside, unless it was shown that such rejection
had affected the result. But, in proof of a single vote
corruptly received or rejected the House should declare
the election void. The question is then narrowed to this.
There is nothing in testimony to show that one or the
other candidate was elected or rejected by means of this
action of the Inspectors. The question is now, did they
so rule ignorantly or coruptly. Once the role estab
lished thut the least corrupt conduct in Inspectors of
elections will vitiate the election, we shall have pure
elections. On the adoption of the majority report, ayes
17, nays 8.
The committee rising, the House adopted their report
and passed a resolution declaring the scat of the mem
ber from Waialua vacant.
Mr. Ukeke presented a resolution that this House do
enquire why " Kimo," (J. I Dowsett) who was elected
a member for Honolulu, absents himself from the service
of the House. Upon suggestion to the honorable gen
tlemen that his object bust be effected by following the.
rules of the House 44, 45, 46, prescribing the mode of
compelling absent members to attend, he withdrew his
Took np order of the day, Mr. Chamberlayne's
Oaths bill, in Committee of the House.
The proposer of the bill considers that it has been
omitted in the Civil Code to give the necessary power
to certain officers to administer oaths in certain cases
where the law directs oaths to be taken. No decisive
action was had on this bill ; it was referred to a select
committee to consult the Chief Justice thereon.
Adjourned to the usual hour.
Ninth Dat, June 1. Mr. Ukeke moved a call of
the House, that the absentees might be noted and

Mr. Knadsen of the Committee on Printing reported
that they had conferred with the Editor of the lla
Hawaii, in relation to furnishing the House with his
paper, and pnblihinr a report of iu proceedings.
Terms offered were $?3 0l per hundred instead of

and the Editor in the last paper asssnres his readers
that h will inform them of the doings of the House,
if anything important is transacted, omitting the de
bates. Subject recommitted.
Resolution to appropriate $600 for government of
fices on Molokai, referred to Committee on Internal
Orders of the day in Committee ot the Whole. Mr.
Chamberlayne's bill to amend Penal Code, Chap VII,
Sec. 9, so as to read, under an indictment for mur
der the jury may return a verdict for murder in either
degree, for manslaughter, or for assault and battery,
under either section of Chap. IX, (aseaalt and bat
tery;) ditto under indictment for manslaughter. Mr.
C. said the amendment w is to aid the ends of justice
in coses where a party being indicted for murder or
manslaughter the Jury cannot find as charged, and the
party escapes all punishment, but under the amended
law miht be found guilty of less or both, and he.ivily
punished therefor. The District Attorney cannot al
ways know exactly what the evidence will be, and
frame bis indictment accordingly, to insure conviction.
The bill would meet fcuch c-iees, as two which had been
tried during the year, in which there had been a fail
ure of justice from the want of such a provision. Mr.
Kalama thought that if the District Attorneys did'nt
know wh it the evidence was to be they ought to, and
that if they made imperfect indictmeots it was their
fault; that the operation of this law would be th.it ju
ries would reduce the high crime of murder, to the
petty offence of affray. Mr. Webstar doubted the
operation of the bill as now framed as the reference to
Chap. IX was too general Referred to procure opin-
ion of Chief Justice.
Mr. K ipi's bill to give district Justice of North Hilo
jurisdiction in civil cases between " foreign residents
and native Hawaiians." Mr. McCully moved to strike
out the second section, that the act go into effect from
day of its passage, as being unnecessary, under section
4 of civil code, to strike out in the native, tbe words
" hanauia ma na aiaa e," after the word " haole " to
strike out the word ' hcoholo." and insert hoo.olo
kolo." to insert a clause limiting this jurisdiction to the
Hilo district North of Hakalan gulch. The present
bill authorizes to try, but not to determine, made no
provision for appeal, had no limit to jurisdiction in
amount, established concurrent and perhaps conflicting
districts of jurisdiction, &c. Referred to Messrs. Cham
berlayne, McCul'y and Kipi to report amended.
Tenth Dat. June 2. Petitions, by Mr. Naiapaakai
from Kaanapali to pat the constables of that district oa
same pay a in Lahaina; by Nahina against distilling
and selling " ram."
Mr. Knudsen of Committee on printing reported that
the Editor of tbe Uae Uawaii adhered to his terms as
Resolutions, received and referred. Appropriating
$200 for a Court House iu Kau; also, for $1,500 for
road from Manulu to Manuka; also, that the salary of
the able and faithful district justice of North Kohalabe
raised to an equality with that of other justices of Ha
waii. Mr. McCully reported as directed yesterday, by
the following bill : Tke district justice of N liito shall
have jurisdiction, subject to appeal, to bear and deter
mine all civil oases, wherein tbe property involved in
controversy or the amount of the plaintiffs demand
does not exceed one hundred dollars, in which the par
ty dependent is resident, or for the time being is found
within that part of Hilo district North of Hakalan
gulch, whether the parties be natives or foreigners, the
provisions of eec 915 of the Civil Code to the contrary
notwithstanding. The House went into Committee of
the Whole upon the same. Mr. Chamberlayne opposed
the amended bill and supported the original, which ia :
"The district justice of North Hilo shall be authorized,
and by this act is authorized to try civil eajs arising
between foreign residents and native Hawaiians as is
done in other districts where there exists no Police
Court" Mr. Chamberlayne preferred the old bill, and
would have none at all rather than the new one, which
he thonght would divide the district for all purposes,
which wss not wished. Mr. Kipi did not wish to have
the division at Hakalaa at it would incommode Mr.
Metealf, by compelling him to go to the Bay" to
Court. It appeared that the new iostioe of N. Hilo is
obliging enough to alternate from end to end of his dis
trict to accommodate those who do business before (or
ttb) him. Mr. McCully thooeht tbe objections take
yesterday, to the original bill, good, and that his amend
ed draft obviated them was opposed to enacting laws
to fit particular men who happened to be in office, Tbe
justice might grw tired of travelling and conclude to
bold his court in one place; be might see fit to summon
a defendant from tbe Puna border to Lao pah oe hoe,-to
the great inconvenience of people f the district. Mr.
Y ebster said it wss most natural to have- tbe jurisdic
tion defined. Subject re-committed to Messrs. Web
ster. Chamberlayne and Kipi to report amended.
Mr. Balaam moved that the House do accept the
terms proposed by tbe Editor of the Ham JIawau; (9th
