The atn.-iunl appropriated was but liule more
than sufficient U act us a reserve fund to draw

sparingly drawn upon during the first year of
the period just closed.

districts of the Kingdom mav be supplemented.

Dunne the biennial period just closed, the die
trict f Waimei, Kiiuai. Makawao. and Waiiu

district of Honolulu, Cibu. Liliha street bus
been metalled and repaired al an expense of
about $1800. Kaahumanu street has been
thoroughly paved with coral stone, being a piece
of work which will outlast the present genera
tion. King S'.reet and its extentiou. the Wai
kiki RuJ. has been extensively improved ; the
same may be said with regard to the extension
of Beretania Street, on the Waikiki plaius,
which is now being worked.

lite utmost importance in developing the re
sources of any couolry. more erpe.-iaiiy oue like
ours, and a marh larger appropriation than the
resources of the Kingdom wil! at present permit
might be expended to advantage. Il Las been
deem advisable to aek for a larger appropriation
for the cuming biennial period, as there are many
bridges throughout the Kingdom that will have
to be repaired or rebuilt during the current
period, to my nothing of roads that onebt to be
worded and improved.
Board of Health.
The several appropriations made by the lust
Legislature lor the benefit of the public health,
will be reported in detail by the President of the
Board of Health.
The Surveyor-General has made a full report
of the work and requirements of Lis Bureau to
this HepxrtaAtit. for the past two years, from
which we learn that the triangulation of the Is
land of Oahu is complete, and that of Hawaii
and Maui is near completion.
The subordinate surveys for the Island of
Oahn are nearly all filled in. There are now
three sureyors. with their helpers, in the Bureau ;
and it will take at least six years for the present
force to complete the survey of the whole King
dom, With a larger force, the work would be
done reach .better aod more rapidly. The ap
propriations have always been too small to cop
port even the above-mentioned small force, al
though expended with the almost economy. Il
is almost essential thai one competent man de- :
vote his whole attention to the making of drafts i
and charts, aod working op filed notes; or, in
other words, that one of the corps remain in the
office, while others attend to the field work, i
This the previous limited appropriations would
not permit of.
The Surveyor-General asks for an appropria
tion of $13,000. which could be largely increased
Following are a few extracts from his Ryport
to the Interior Department : Our calculation
books proved that the survey carried from the
west base, aronud Makapnn and Mokapu, and
back through Nuuanu Valley to the starting

carried around through Ewa. Waialua and Koo

longitude, and the bearings carried around the
Island in opposite directions, coincide wilb ooe

our survey is being carried oo in the most care
ful and accurate manner.
A large aod beaulifal map of the Kingdom
was prepared and forwarded to the American
Centennial Exposition, with regard to which the
Surveyor-General remarks : " It was drawn oo
the Poly conic projection, oo a scale of 30,000
feet to the inch, or 1-3C0O00. and measnres about

would have more important results to show with

The appropriation made by the Legislature has
been found insufficieut for the requiremems of
the Bureau during the past biennial period. It is
not deemed aitrisable'. however, to increase the
amount, as the expenses for the coming two years
will probably be not as great as for the last two.
The revenue derired Irom this Bureau for the
year 1S75 was an improvement on the previous
year, and gives promise ol a still greater increase.
This is probably the best inveslmeot io the pos

INTER-ISLAND STEAM NAVIGATION.

steamer Kiiaoea. shows the totsl receipts and
disbursements from April 1. 1874. to March 31.

round trips, aod although she earned over $100.

The necessity of inter-island steam communi
cation is too well known and appreciated to re
quire a statement here ol the reasons wby it
ought to be contiuoed.
His Majesty's government will ask the Legis
lature for an appropriation snfficienl to purchase
or uuild a new steamer. The Kitauea will shortly
require extensive repairs to both hull and ma
chioery. and past experience proves that it wootd
be more economical to add a little to the re
quired expeodilure to procure a new steamer.

The appropriation was amply sufficient for the
requirements of the boat, and it is bettered that
a like amount will suffice for the coming two
years ; bui as it is something like seven years
since she was tbcroushly repaired, and her haji
bnd machinery require repairs, the extent of
which il will be impossible to determine before a
thorough exaoi'oatioQ, il has been decided to
ask for the sum of $5,000 for thai purpose.
Sl BSIDT TO VESSEt. OB VESSELS TO KI N BETWEEN

Only a little over a half of this appropriation
has been expended, as no suitable vessel has been
found to kep np the service : and although if
properly carried out it would prove a great coo-
I venieuce to the residents ot the Island of Maai
and Molokai. yet as no one seems ready lo under
! take the requirements of the service, ihe diacoo-
tmuaoce of the appropriation is advised.
ANCHORS AND BLOTS.
The moorings generally have beeo over haoled
and repaired, and nearly the whole of the appro
priation is used for that purpose. The same ap
propriation for the coming period is thought to

out as the sea-wall in the harbor is at any tin e
liable to fall in, which would entail a greater or
lesser expense chargeable to this appropriatioo.
it woald be advisable lo have an appropriation of
of the same amount to meet such contingencies.
REPAIRS OF WUARVES.
More than the appropriation has been expend
ed for this purpose, and the wharves keptio good
repair, as circumstances would permit- A con
siderable amount of work will be required duriog
the coming biennial period, in the way of replac
ing piles, plaoking, carlioes, Jtc. &c ; sod a!
there is quite an amount of lumber on band,
which has been charged to previous appropria
tions, il is believed that the sum of $10,000 will
not be more than sufficient to meet the require
ments of the coming biennial period.
This appropriation has been found, as antici
pated, insufficient for the purpose. This is the
most important light-boose maintained by the
Government, and is oecessarily much more ex
pensive than all the rest pat together ; an ap
propriation of not less than $1,500 for current
expenses will be required. The ligbt-bonse is
build on wooden piles, which hare began to de
cay more or less, and it is thought advisable to
replace them with a stone foaodalioo, which is
estimated will cost $800. A
might see fit, with regard to the baat policy to
pursue io obtaining either permanent settlers or
plantation laborers from abroad.
Two of the boo. members have complied with
the request. Following are a few extracts from
their communication :
A proper recommeodatioh to tbe Assembly
wilt be that of a reorganisation of tbe Board. Al
a' present constituted, it is a powerless and in
efficient bodjk II is Dot responsible to tbe As
sembly, oor has it power lo carry oat its owo
projects. At present, it is simply an ordinary
Committee cf the Privy Cooocil, and its mem
hers, by reasio of their narrow and limited func
tt -is. can have hut little interest in its proceed
ings, and in reality have no voice io its direction.
Il woald be a great improvement to make tbe
Board a potential body ; thai is to constitute it a
bureau similar lo the Board of Education, giving
to il authority over iu own luods. aod power to
order and execute, as well as to advise ia tbe
work assigned to it."
The foregoing recommendation is supported io
the second communication before referred to as
" I entirely concur with in his T-iewt
herewith expressed, and strongly do I orge the
advisability or the Board being a responsible
bureau having power given them to act and
then held strictly lo account for results."
Tbe appropriation of $50,000 is recommended
for the coming biennial period.
IMPROVEMENTS OP THE PRESENT PALACE GROrXDS
This appropriation has been largely overdrawn
the lolal ainouul expended being $36 911.31 ;
$3,360 of the sum, however, was f.ir the par
chase of the Sumner lot and house, oo the north
corner ol the Palace Square.
On the examination of the old Palace, it was
found to be in such a condition that any expen
diture of oioney apon it for exteosive repairs
woald be wholly unadvisable. Il was therefore
decided to tear it down, use the material as far
as possible in the coostraction of the wall our
roaoding tbe groaods, aud expend the appropria
tion in building the wall and improving the
premises. The wall has been nearly completed,
substantial aod convenient houses for servants,
and other outbuildings have been erected, and
the grounds have been thoroughly graded aud
furnished with water pipes and hydrants.
FINUUINO NEW GOVERNMENT BUtLDINOS.
This appropriation is also somewhat overdrawn.
Tbe boilding was not finished when the appro
priatioo was made, and it was considered suffi
cient for the purpose ; but there was quite a
number of items of necessary expenditure that
were quite overlooked, such as plumbing, paint
ing, tx. ; and when Ihe building itself was actu
ally completed, there were some articles of furni
ture and fittings that were absoloiely necessary,
such as Chinese matting, coir mattiog, fillings
in Ihe Legislative Hall, and the like, wbicb had
! not been taken into account wheo Iba appropria
tioo was asked for.
WHARF AND EXTENSION OF MARKET.
Tbis work has been completed at a cost some
what in excess of tbe appropriation lor that pur
pose, which has beeo due in some measure to a
greater expense in the construction of Ihs wharf
than was anticipated.
The wharf and buildings now make a most con
venient market for dealers in fish and other
native produce, and the conveniences famished
to Ihe occupants have completely removed all
cause for complaints, which were formerly so
This Bureau, under the able management of

REPAIRS OF GOVERNMENT BCTLDINGS.
The stores occupied by Messrs. Brewer t Co.,
aod Pierce Co., tbe Custom House. Barracks,
Post-office. Telegraph Stations, have all beeo re
paired to a greater or less degree. Tbe Kerosene
Storehouse in Kalia, south-east of Honolulu, was
found in snfficienl to accommodate all the oil of
fered for storage when the law relating to the
storage of inflammable oil in Honolulu was pnt
io force, consequently, a large additioo was built
on tbe west end of the old bouse.
Tbe Lock-up in Hiio. Hawaii has been raised,
enlarged, and enclosed with a good substantial
A new and convenient Court-house has been
built io Waimea, Kauai.
Daring the coming tro years, tbe following
work should be done, in order to keep tbe Gov
ernment buildings io good repairs.
Tbe Custom House io Uonolola, requires a
new roof, and its west wing a new roof.
The Royal Mausoleum should have new cop
per gutters at tbe intersections of tbe floor.
The old Store-boose ran ok a of the old Custom
House oo Queen Street, Honolulu, should be
thoroughly overhauled and given a new roof and
Boor. The repairs on tbe Store-bouse will prob

" At the same time I would recommend that !
ao accurate surrey of tbe district of Kons. Oahu, j
oo which considerable progress has already beeo j
made, be systematically carried on until comple
ted. A map, exhibiting all tbe original titles of
this district, woald serve as tbe best iodex to tbe
Land Commission Awards, and woald be iavalaa
ble both to the Government aod private indi
viduals. A special survey U also Deeded io tbe
district of Hamakaa, Hawaii, where a huge tract
of valuable government land remains unsold, in
regard to which frequent enquiries are mad? To
carry out tbe above programme, at least $13,000
will be required for the next two years. I would
respectfully suggest that tbe Hon. J. W. al ska
te na. who has been Government Surveyor coder
four Hawaiian Kinss. aod is in feeble health, be
placed on the civil list, as a reward for bis long
and faithful services."
From the foregoing it will be seen that tbe
Surveyor General, who has fall charge of the
survey since its inception, aod is therefore best
qualified to judge, deems aa increase of tbe ap
propriation as indispensable to the well-working
ot use ooreao.
8TPPORT OF PRISOXTERa
Tbe last LegialaLare saw fit to reduce tbis ap
propriation from $9,000 (the sum that has beeo
found barely sufficient daring tbe last twelve
years for tbis purpose) to $6,000, wbicb amount
has been more than exhausted, requiring a trans

From a report from Marshal Parke, it appears
that there has seen, oo ao average, daring the

Tbe first point made by the respondent appel
lant was, that as this appeal was not perfected
until after the opening of this term, it could be
required ooder the rules lo be heard al ibis term.
The court held that appeals (under role IV.) per
fected after the opening of the term, would be
beard at tbe same term, provided there remained
sufficient time, aod to good cause was shown why
the appeal should go over. This case not being
within tne exceptions, the appeal was heard.
The next point was, that " this appeal is to
the full court io banco," under sec. 859 of tbe
Civil Code, which by sec. 827 consists of three
The coort he'd tbst the decision made some
years ago by the bench consisting of three justi
ces, to the effect that a jodgment of two justi
ces was coostitotiooal, was binding opoo tbe
court io banco as at present constituted.
The third point made is. that the bill avert
that tbe plaintiff offered for sale the " Hi of Pa
pobaku " by acres, aod the respondent became
tbe purchaser of tbe said Hi containing 23.45-100
acres, whereas the proofs show that tbe plaintiff
was licensed by tbe probate coort to sell " all tbe
right, title and interest of said W. H. Kaaowai,
deceased, ic and to tbe Hi of land known as Pa
pobako " etc.. aod tbtl the pluintiff offered ibe
'land io Pspobako. leased to G. Armstrong,"
etc, and it is urged that the plaintiff sold what
ihe coort did not aolhorixe him to sell and the
wbole sale is therefore void.
Il is in evidence that a poster was pot np at
the place of sale, reciting that tbe plaintiff as ad
ministrator of W. H. Koauwai, deceased, was li
censed to sell tbe right, title and interest of tbe
said W. H. Kaaowai. deceased, io aod to the Hi
of land known as Papokaka. situated at Wailuku,
Maoi, to wit.:" Foor parcels of laad. lit. 2
chains and 4 fathomt square ; 2d. 1 acre aod 1
square chain ; 3d. 1 K acres ; 4th. 14 acres, 6
chains sod 100 fathoms square." These printed
conditions of sale, (being thus posted st tbe place
of sale, and therefore brought to the knowledge
of the vendee.) form a part of the terms of tbe
contract aod are binding opoo the parties. Story
oa sales, sec. 463
Tbe respondent cannot say that tbe estate of
fered was not offered as " Ibe right, title aod in
terest of Kaaowai io aod to the land known as
Iba Hi of Papohaku," for it was distinctly so de
scribed io the poster which broogbt him lo ths
place of sale at the time. Bat parole testimony
was adduced apparently without objection, to
vary or restrict the description of the estate of
ferred, by showing that tbe plaintiff wbo also
acted as auctioneer, stated that tbe land offered
for sale " waa leased to G. Armstrong."
It woald seem as if this statement by the aoe
liooeer was supplemental to tbe description oo
tbe poster in order to give greater certaintv. or
with tbe object of warning Ibe purchaser of the
incumbrance aod that be coold not obtain imme
diate possession of the laod. although tbe sale of
the right, title and interest of Kaauwai io the
laod woald convey to tbe purchaser ooly Kaao
wai s interest as lessor.
Tbe (reoeral doctrine is sound, that tbe printed
conditions of tale cannot be varied or.conlradis
ted by parole evidence of verba statements made
by the auctioneer at the time of sale, except for
tbe purposes of proving fraud. (See Story oa
contracts ; sec. 463 aod cases cited.) This state
ment, however, does oot contradict tbe poster,
aod as it may have had the effect of making bid
den believe that a lata quantity of laod was pat
p than tbe administrator was licensed lo sell,
ws matt treat the statement made io tbst way,
and wecoodsde that tbe administrator offered tbe
interest and estate bf W. If. Kaaowai in that
part of the land known aa the Hi of Papohaku
which was under lease to G. Armstrong.
Tbe administrator bad a right to offer less land
than bis license covered, for it was necessary to
sell only so much as was sufficient to pay the de
ceased intestate's debts.
It is io evidence that apaoa 5 of the royal pat
ent No. 5537. being apaos 4 of the 'poster, was
under lease to Armstrong, aod of this, at least,
tbe respondent, according to all the testimony.
became the purchaser. The sale of tbis piece to
him is not void wn the ground of its being io
amount less than the total amount of land to
tborised to be sold ly ibe license of tbe probata
The objection of respondent remains, that as
section sales are within the statote of frauds, no
memorandam of tbe sale io wriliog was signed
aa required by that statote.
The trstimony of H. W. Daniels aod J. K.
Kaili is conclusive on that point to wit I tbst
Ihe clerk of the administrator auctioneer, one J.
K. Kaili, wrote at tbe time of tbe tale the de
scription of the land sold, Ibe amoonl or acres
and the price bid per acre, ihe totsl amoonl sod
Ihe name of the purchaser, ami thai it was signed
by lbs aoctiooeer. It is true that the orisfvaal
memorandam is not produced, bat both lhes
witnesses testify as to its contents, aod the clerk
testifies thst Ihe memorandum Sled io tbo return
of the administrator, is an exsct copy ol Ibe or
icinnl made by him a fsw days after the tale.
Bat if the requirements of the statute of frauds
had not been complied wilb. io teles nf Ibis na
ture beiog jadinal sales and being sshject to con
firmation, sorb memoranda are not necessary to
their validity. It is true that io the case of
Smith vs. Arnold. 5 Mason 420, Story. J. says
that an administrator's sale ia not a judicial sale,
because " the court when it has once authorised
tbe administrator lo sell is functus officio and ths
proceedings of tbe administrator never came be
fore the court for examination or confirmation."
Bat by oar statutes and practice, sales by ad
ministrators have all the characteristics of judi
cial sales as indicate,! in the decision above ci
ted. They are sohject to confirmation by the
court which grants the license.
In tbe case al bar the sale was distinctly sta
ted both by the poster and by the auctioneer
verbally to be " subject to tbe approval of the
coart at the court-house. Honolula." It it Iras
that at the time of confirmation in this case, the
purchaser was oot present. But be could have
filed hit objections and made himself a party if
be chose. However desirable il may be to nolily
purchasers of tbe time of the bearing for confir
mation of soch sales, there il oo statute requiring
it. nor does it appear to have beeo the practice.
The defendant had notice at the moment of
his being declared purchaser, that it would he re
ported to the coort for confirmation, and knew
that if there were any reasons wby he shoald not
lake the property which he bid for, be would lie
But the failure to notify tbe purchaser to be
present does not take away Irom these sales their
judicial character, which " from tbe beginning to
the end are under the guidance and direction of
the court " aod are oot therefore " within the
mischiefs supposed by tbe statute of frauds."
