Supreme Court Majority
Opinion Decides
Question.
CANNOT GO BEYOND
THE STATUTE'S SCHEDULE
Justice Perry Dissents on the Ground
That the Proxy In Question
Wa3 a Power of
Attorney.
"A proxj, or mitten authority, of a
shareholder In a corporation empower
ing another to vote his stock at a
designated meeting, or meetings, of the
stockholders of the corporation Is not
a power of attorney within the Intent
and meaning of Section 911, C. L, and
Is not subject to the stamp duty Impos
ed by said statute."
Such Is the law of the Territory as
laid down In an opinion of the Supreme
Court by Justice Galbralth, to which a
concurring opinion at length Is added
by Chief Justice Frcar A dissenting
opinion Is Hied by Associate JiiBtlce
Perry. The lase was that of A. V.
Van Valkenberg vs. Tieaiurcr of tha
Territory of Hawaii being nn nppeal
fiom the assessment of stamp duty by
the Treasurer Smith & Lewis for ap
pellant , E I Dole, Attorney General
foi the Tre-asuier.
Mr. Van Valkenberg appointed G. n
I'axlon to vote as Ills proxy at any
meeting of the stockholder of The U.
1 Dillingham Company, Ltd , a Hawa
iian corporation. The appointment
was In writing and In foim bore some
le-semblance to a power of attorney
but v. us not under seal or acknowledg
ed. The Treasurer ruled that the writ
ing was a power of ultoiucy and sub
ject to stamp duty of (1 under Section
!'tl, C I.. This section gins a schedule
of documents subject to stamp duty,
which specifics power of attorney.
Justice Galbralth quotes Story as
s.ijlng it Is a general itilc In the Inter
in elation of all statutes levying taxes
oi duties not to extend their provisions
b Implication be)onel the dear Im
poit of the language used oi to cu
laigc their opctatlnn so us to embrace

A Hawaiian decision. The Minister of
Pittance vs Illshop &. Co, Is tiled us
sustaining the same principle, saing.
' Statutes Imposing taxes ought not to
lie construed so as to Include articles
or Instruments not tlearl) coining
within them Tor Instance a statute
lev) Ing a M on horses would not In
clude mules and one levying n tax on
mules would not Include asses" Com
menting on thle quotation Justice Gal
biallh obseivcs:
"Theie Is some- resemblance between
a nover of attorney and a pioxy (pos
siblv us much as between a horse and a
mule) Kadi, when In writing, Is th
evidence of the authority of the person

VERY HAPPY DAY SPENT

Dancing and Game3 Throughout Day
-Music By Quintet Club
Over 300 Peoplo
Present.
Ask any Shrlncr of Aloha Tempi"
you sec on tho streets today If he had a
good time at the picnic nt Moanalua
Saturday and he will tell )ou he never
had a better time In all his life. The
same stoty may bo had from tho ladles
and child! en who were at tho picnic.
The Shrlncrs and their friends went
down to Moanalua In two parties, the
first of which started out from the Ma
sonic Templo nt 10 o'clock and tho sec
ond at 11:30. The Rapid Transit cars
were taken to the end of the line In
Kalihl and then the merry makers took
the busses of the Tramwajs Co. to Mo
analua. The place arranged for the picnic
was the golf links where many people
had been sent ahead to make tho ar
rangements for tho clay's outing. Upon
arrival there of tho Shrlners and their
families and friends, everything was In
readiness for the fun
The fine pavilion was In condition for
dancing and Solomon's Quintet Club
was on the spot to furnish music foe
the dancing which was continued
throughout the day.
Skipping ropes, balls, bats and other
ai -les of the kind so necessary to
children In a clay's outing, were there
on the grounds and Immediately upon
arrival the girls and boys took to the
fields for n good time Throughout the
day there were games of some Kind
going on and every once In n while)
there were races, Indulged In by men
women and children
The Shrlners appreciate very much
the kindness of Hon. S M. Damon In
allowing them and their friends to hold
their picnic at his place and In token
of this feeling of appreciation tho fol
lowing lettei was sent to Mr Damon

Honolulu, April 14, 1002.
Hon. S. AI. Damon. Honolulu
Dear Sir On behalf of the mem
bers of Aloha Temple, Mystic Shrlncis
I beg to Under you our sincere- thanks
for your generosity In allowing us the
use of jour beautiful grounds nt Mo

t t-t-t-t--f -f
tween a proxy and power uf attorney.
That a proxy was not named In the
schedule b specific nnd clear language
must be tnken as conclusive evidence
of tho Intention of the Legislature not
to Include such Instrument among tho
subjects of taxation "
Chief Justice Prear begins his con
curilng opinion thus "There Is no
doubt that technically speaking, a
pi ox Is a power of attorney, as It Ih
a written authority to one to act In
the place of anothci , and foi this lea
ton my first Impression was that It
would have to bo stamped nuclei- the
statute Ilut upon reflection I have
come to a different conclusion."
The Chief Justice goes on to reason
that the question Is not whether a
proxy Is a power of attorney, but
w better the Legislature Intended It to
be taxed under that head. I'ollowlng
the pilnclplcs quoted by .lustlco Gnl
bialth he argues that proxies are uf
such common use that the Leglslatme
would have shown clearly that it
meant to tnx them If It lenlly did mean
to In Minister of Finance vs Illshop
& Co., the court held that neither pro
lulksoiy notes, checks nor certificates
of deposit were "agreements" within
the meaning of the Stamp Act, al
though they nil were agreements lech
ilk-ally speaking. Tho Chief Justice
paR tho fact that, notwithstanding thn
fieqtient use of proxies in these Isl
ands, no one had ever thought ot
stumping them dmlng the quarter con
t ii i y tho Stamp Act had been In force
until tho sepal te provision foi stamps
on proxies In tho Federal Stamp Act
iccently suggested tho question, not
onl showed tho common understand
ing that pioxlcs stand In u class by
themselves, but also supports tho view
that the Legislature did not Intend
that the should bo tnxed
Jitstlco Terry, dissenting, argues that
the prox before the court Is a power
of attorney Ho finds In the 1'nlteil
States War Tnx Act of Juno, 60S, n tax
Imposed on "power of attorney or
proz for voting," nnd saE 'Tho In
strument under consideration Is a for
mal power of attorney, using that term
even In the sense In which, as I believe,
It Is undeistood by l.omen" Ho ie
fers to nn English deilslon quoted bj
the Chief Justice In this enso, salng
"The enso goes perhaps further than
It Is nccessur to go in t. o present enso
anil would seem to bo authorlt In sup
port of tho view that nny proxy would
bo n power of nttorne within thn
meaning ot our statute "
His dissent Is not so much from the
genetnl conclusions of his colleagues
but Is based on tho view that the writ
ing of Van Vnlkenborg was lenlly n
power of attorney In its formality In
other words, Justice Perry considers
the animal n mule which Justice Gal
bralth takes to bo a horse.

FIRE UNDER CONTROL
IN ABOUT HOUR'S TIME
Call Sent in By Man From Honolulu

Headquarters -Cause
Unknown.
At nbout 4 30 o'clock this morning
the fire- whistle- sounded ami the Klro
Department responded simultaneously
to a call from box 3o. 62, tho very
first alarm sent In from any of tho
recently Instnlte-d boxes. The fire was
In ono or the row ot two-story Chinese
i built buildings on Kukul street. Just a
little Kwn or Ntiunnii and on the Wsl
iklkl side.
.he discover' was made by three
or fuur peoplo nt about tho eamo
'time. Onu or these was Patrolman
Maitland, who Immediately rode to
the police station and turned In thu
alarm. In the meantime. Mr. Perr) of
I the Club Stables Annex hail telophnn
t d to the- telephone exchange and had
I re-ee-lveel rrom there the information
'that tho exchange was no longer con
'nocted with the Pin- Department stn
'Hon. I A man from the Honolulu Hotel
rushed out mid, opening the box, teiru
ed In the ninrm to which the Pire De
partment responded
Por n while otter the arrival or the
department nt the Bconc or tho con
flagration onl) one stream of water
was available and by thu time that
mole streams wore put on the burn
ing building, two more had caught
lire nnd wore- burning In groat shape,
fminod b) n fair breeze- from the north
east It was thoiiKbl by pe-oplu In the vl
clnlt) that there would be n spreading
of the Haines to other buildings In
I close proximity nnd so the owners
stnrted in to move tehlr things. Tho
Murray carriage shops stood In tho
! greatest danger ns these vveru Imme
diately em the Kwn side of the burn
ing buildings. However, the Plre De-
'pnrtment got-ln Its work In good time
.to snve tho carriage shops and other
buildings In the vlclult) The mon at
the Club Stable s Annex got bus) and
remuved nil the- horses stabled at tho
place.
The llnmes were not extinguished
until about ei 30 o'cloe k In tho mean,
time tlnee twostor) buildings re-
, eentl) built nml occuplcit b) Chlnesu
wore- burned til the ground, thero re-
' mnlnlng nothing but the corrugated
Iron roofs The two story building Im
mediately adjoining on the Wnlklkl
side wns burned so badly that It tt
practical!) elestro)cel and a now build
ing will huve to be put up In Its place.
The lire started In the building next
to the Murray carriage shops from a
jenuse that has not yet been discover-
I eel There has been a large crowd at
the scone of the tiro nil day and tho
Chinese who occupied the building nro
searching for valuables In the remains.
The fire stnrteel up so suddenly mid
spread so rapidly that there was no
I chance to save mi) thing Tho damago
has not )et been ascertained.
I Chief Thurston when seen this
morning about hc fire stated that th'e
compnnles were n bit slow In getting
streams on tho burning buildings bo
cause uf the distance of the b)drants
nwny from the fire As soon as th
engines were going in good shape,
there was plenty of water nnd tho
flames were under control In an hour's
time
It Is estimated that the IAss on the
buildings themselves will reach $S000
nnd that tho loss on tho contents of
thu buildings will amount to nbout 1.
300 making n total of 950O A part
of this loss will bo covered by Insur
ance but It is understood that the In
surance cnrrlod b) the Chinese on tho
c buildings burned was not very great.
