Tur. late fire lips shown the necessity of
more substantia! buildings iu tbe business
portion of the city. Hail it not been for the
fire-proof stole of Mr. C. E. Williams, the fire
mitrht have snread ranidlv to tho sea. But
fortunately this, the only building in contact
with tho fraino strueturo destroyed, confined
the fire to very narrow limits. If n brick-building
is ere:ted in plat o of the cm destroy
ed, it will not only improve the appeatance of
the vicinity but afford greater security. With
the increaso of capital, and reduction of tho rate
of interest, there can be no good reason why
other franio buildings, now occupied as stores,
and containing stocks valued at from ten to
twenty-thousand dollars, should not be replaced
with brick or stone structures. The rate
of interest for money loaned on such security
ought not to exceed seven or eight per cent., if
for a terra of several years.
An article on our fourth page on tho subject
of adiertisinq, will icpay perusal. We hear
complaints occasionally of dull times, but
they are chiefly from those who do not adver.
tee freely and continuously. The man who
lets tho public know what wares ho lias aud
ahat he has that is new, seldom has occasion
to speak of dull times. As the article refer
red to says : advertisements, lo produce the
greatest return, "should bo continuous. Any
idea of discontinuing them for a period, how
ever brief, with the view of saving, is as we
have seen, a mistake which leads only to
disappointment and loss. It involves not
only the loss of the time during which the
advertisement cease3 to appear, but the
additional loss of the time required to bring
tho public interest up the point at which it
left off. The proverb, "out of sight out of
mind," is nowhere inoro applicable than in tho
case of an advertisement."
TnE Banco decision which we publish in
to-day's issue in the caBO of Bmnz vs the
Minister of the Interior, establishes an important
ruio for the issuing of Royal Patents
confirming Land Commission Awards, which
cannot but bo of great utility hereafter to holders
of portions of such awards as well as to
The case was brought to ascertain whether
or not tho Minister could refuse to issue a
Patent to tho holder of a portion of an award
which had been originally granted by surveyed
boundaries. The law states that lie
shall issue a Patent to "any holder of an
award." The defendant's counsel argued
that these words gave no authority to give a
patent to any holder of a portion only of an
award. The court held that such a Patent
could not be refused, that every such land
owner was entitled to a perfect title whenever
he was ready to pay the government commutation,
and added a statement of the requirements
as to description of boundaries to bo
observed in future application therefor, which
seems lo us a necessary restriction. This decision
is especially important at the present
time tho beginning of an era of increased
activity in real estate dealings.
Pbofessor Davidson lias recently delivered
before tho Sacramento Literary Institute
an interesting lecture on the abovo topic,
which is published in the Sacramento Union of
the 21st of February, in which ho gave a
graphic account of the state of tho science in
India, Italy and Egypt, dwelling especially
on the marvels of engineering skill in the
former country, where the English have done
wonders for tho benefit of the swarming inhabitants.
India stands pre-eminent in its
gigantic undertakings for systematically irrigating
large districts through engineering
means that are, and in ono senso must be un-
paralled. It is probable that no other country
auords such an area of fertile land capable of
being made to produce two crops annually,
wholly or in part by artificial means.
For probably more than two thousand years
tho native races of India have supplemented
tho rains by irrigation from reservoirs, canals,
and from millions of wells ; but it has been
reserved to the English' to develop the system
of irrigation so thoroughly that it is now
merely a question of time when tho great projects
already examined shall be built. Those
projected, and nearly all under progress, aro
estimated to cost SlG9,750,000, and with their
completion, within tho nest twenty-three
years, we may safely say that the population
will bo doubled, famines will be mitigated,
and the most important to tho Government,
the revenues will certainly be more than
doubled and their ruio and authority moro
Tho first English irrigating enterprise in
India was undertaken by an incorporated
company, upon whoso expenditures the East
India Government guaranteed tho interest.
Financially it was not a success. A second
undertaking by another company without
guarantee (but tho free gift of all the land required
for permanent works, etc.,) was a failure,
and the Government bought tho works.
Thcso and other failures seem almost unaccountable
when wo learn that on tho Madras
system tho cost of water supplied was one-fiftieth
of tho cost by native labor; whilst the
ratio of profit to the cultivation from equal
areas of irrigated and of "dry land" is moro
than three to one, and tho ratio of revenue to
tho Government about the same.
Tho natural inferenco from theso facts
would seem to be that irrigation projects on a
large scale should always bo undertaken by
Government, rather than by private parties or
companies, for while they are often, we may
say generally, poor investments in the matter
of dollars and cents they almost always pay
heavy dividends to the Government by assuring
the increased prosperity of the people, by
causing tho appreciation of property, and by
the consequent increment of taxes.
This theory may not hold jjood in some of
its features to this country, where tho limited
territory precludes die possibility of
enterprises of any magnitude, rendering
It possible for any capitalist to undertake
the construction of canals, but wo believe
that wherever a stream, from its situation and
size, can be made available for irrigating
lands belonging to a number of owners, it
should bo held and controlled by the Government.
Although irrigation has been practised in this
country fiT a primitive sort of way for hundreds
of years, tho cultivation of the staff of
life of the aborigines being impossible, except
in favored localities, without it, it is only
lately that there has been any attention given
to the work of utilizing our numerous mountain
torrents in the cultivation of sugar and
rice, by diverting them from their wasteful
plunge into the briny waste of waters, to the
dry and parched, but fertile plains which
skirt so many parts of. the islands. As it
appears that the best cane lands are not those
where the rain-fall is the greatest, and where
vegetation is the most rank and luxuriant, but
rather those leeward areas whera tho he.it of
tho sun is most feivid, and which present to
the eye, for the greater part of the year, a
scene of verdureless desolation, we are forced
to tho conclusion that the approaching rapid
increase of agricultural industry in this country
will be largely dependent on irrigation,
and that before long every availablo stream
will be tapped aud mado to furnish it
quota of water. It therefore behooves tho
Government to initiate some practical irriga
tion system for the Kingdom before a
of interests shall render such a thing
difficult and complicated.

GOV. HAYES CALLS ON GBAXT.
Washington, March 2. During the session
of tho Cabinet to-day, the President-elect,
Hayes, accompanied by General Sherman and
Governor Dennison, called at the Executive
Mansion, Mr. Hayes desiring to present his
respects tothe President. Tho distinguished
party were ushered into tho Council Chamber,
where the Cabinet was in session, and all proceedings
were stopped so that tho formalities
of the introduction might proceed. The President-elect
was especially greeted aud congratulated
by President Grant and members
of his Cabinet, all of whom, with tho exception
of Secretary Morrill, who was kept away by
sickness, were present, and mutual expressions
of happiness were exchanged. The President
and President-elect had an earnest, quiet conversation
of some minutes duration, in which
President Grant acquainted tho President-elect
with the directions given concerning the new
occupancy of the Executive Mansion and of
tho arrangements made in regard to the courtesies
attending tho inaugural ceremonies as
far as they concerned tho president Chief
Magistrate. Personal and political friends of
the President-elect were at tho Executive
Mansion, and when his party left all shook
hands with him before ho entered his carriage.
AT THE CAPITOL.
From tho Executive Mansion the party drove
to tho Capitol, proceeding at once, by invitation
of tho President of tho Senate, to tho
Vice-President's room, where an informal reception
was held. Republicans and many
Democratic Senators called to pay tlieir respects,
and were presented to President-elect
Hayes by Senator Ferry. Subsequently a

other persons of prominence called and tendered

I am. Gentlemen, your obediont servant,
(SignedJ J. S Walkeh,
Minister of Finance
Tho letter of His Excellency tho Minister of
Finance contains all tho points which were to
form the contract, in a definitive manner, except
that relating to the subsidy which was
piomised on tho condition that tho Legislature
should make tho necessary appropriation
for the purpose. Had His Majesty's Government
had at that time an appropriation at its
disposal, the contract would have been finally
concluded in October or Xovcmber, 1875.
Under the circumstances, however, that could
not be done then. Tho promiso of tho Ministers
to ask from tho Legislature a subsidy
was mado by them and accepted by tho Company
in good faith. Tho appropriation was
granted in duo time, and without any new
conditions demanded by tho Legislature, except
that tho money should not bo paid for any
past services, but only for future services to
be rendered by the P. M. S. S. Co. Tho passing
of tho item of 5:20,000 for mail subsidy in
the Appropriation Bill, was accompanied by
the following resolution of tho House:
" That in disbursing the sum of $20,000
' placed in the Appropriation Bill for subsidy
" to the Pacific Mail Steamship Company, no
" part, shall bo U6ed for any servico already
" performed by the steamships of tho said
"Company, but said money shall bo used only
" in payment of service to bo rendered after a
" contract shall havo boon signed between this
" Government aud tho said steamship Com-"
This resolution lias been interpreted by nis
Majesty's of Finance to mean
"that the Legislature had no intention to
subsidize tho servico as heretofore performed,
but a contract which should stipulato for further
advantages, such as making Honolulu a
terminal port, etc."
Tho resolution certainly does not express
any such thing, and, it appears to us, cannot
bear such interpretation. It refers only to
the time of commencement of, not to conditions
in tho contract. These conditions had been
already agreed upon. In fact we havo the
assurancoof the lato Minister of Foreign Affairs
that tho majority of tho members of tho
Legislature did not desire to subsidize a lino
which mado Honolulu a terminal port, but on
tho contrary just such a ono as we now havo
with the advantages which its large numbers
of transient passengers confer upon the trade
of Honolulu, especially bo far as it is represented
by the small native traders in fruit,
Upon tho prorogation of tho Legislature in
October last, wo wero promised by tho lato
Cabinet a speedy completion of the contract
in due form, and we wero thnn told that tho
Ministers wished only to add a clause binding
tho steamers bound for San Francisco to stay
in port at least eight hours during daylight.
The Cabinet was then very busy with other
matters, and tho completion of the formal contract
was deferredjrpm timo to time, and had
not been accomplished when the late Ministry
went out of office ; wo had, however, its promise,
that tho subsidy should commenco from
October, 187C, no matter at what subsequent
date tho contract might bo signed, in other
words, the contract should be held as existing
from the 1st of October, 1870.
Such was the state of tho case when the
present Ministry came into office, who now
ignore what has been promised by their predecessors,
and havo refused to make a contract
which had been negotiated with the
latter, and which had failed to be signed
through no fault of ours.
In making thi3 publication we need, hardly
say that we do not in any way mean to show
the slightest disrespect to the members of His
Majesty's Government, for whom we have, indeed,
only feelings of the highest respect and
consideration, but we do so merely in justice
to the Company which we represent, and to
refute tho charge of injustice which has been
imputed to the Company in several communications
which have lately appeared in the
newspapers of this city.

TO SCFBEME COCET IX BaKCO.
.'Before Harris, C. X, Judd and JlcColly, J. J.
(Heard by consent in Tacation.)
These are two actions originally brought in tbe
Police Court of Honolulu on contracts for labor; the
first contract being for a term of five months, dated
the 3d of November, 1876, at $12 per month, upon
which an advance of 39 is acknowledged to bare
been received; and the is dated the 13th of
November, 1875, for twelve months, at 810 per
month. Upon which an advance of SGo has been
The 6rst one is tigned by II J. Coolidge,
per M. A. Coolidge; and tbe second sigucd by U. J.
It is made to appear that, at the time of signing
tbe contract with Puaaiki, Mr Coolidge was out of
the country, temporarily, and had left his plantation
in charge of bis wife, who couducted nil the business,
and carried on tbe plantation generally.
Now it is caid that this contract is cot bindiug
upon Puaaiki, because that Mrs. CooliJge bail no
authority, in writing, from her husband, and could
not bind him so ns to make hiin liable to the peunl
terms of the 1423 Section of the Civil Code, which
enacts : that if, on complaint of tbo servant, the
master should be found guilty of any cruelty,
or violation of any of the terms of the contract,
the laborer shall be discharged from nil obligations
of service, aud the master shall bo fined in a sum uot
less tban fivo nor more than one hundred doll irs,
and in default of the payment thereof be imprisoned
at hard labor until the same is paid."
It is not alleged that there has bcea any violation
of any terms of tbo coutract on the pirt of the employer;
and it is aduiitlcd that Mr. Coolidge returned
to the country ufter the contract had been midc
in his name, nnd resumed the carrying on of the
The point in tbe case seems to be that there is no
denial of Mrs. Coolidge's authority, but on the contrary
an admission of it, aud indeed an express
recognition of it by her husband in this nnd similar
cases ufter Ins return. She was acting as minagcr
of tbe plantation during her husband's absence and
did all the duties of a manager.
Now if we wero lo hold that it was necessary for
her to hive an authority iu writiog to do Ibis especial
act of hiring labor, it would be necessary for any
other manager lo have it. TI.e employment of labor
seems to fall within her authority as manager, and if
she were lawfully authorized to act as manager, it
was not necessary that she should be authorized in
writing. Her act certainly bound her husband to
the performance of every condition of Ibe contract
contained, not only iu tbo contract itself, but those
required by the siatute; and therefore there is no
failure of " mutuality " of coutract, and, indeed,
Mr. Coolidge's subsequent adoption of her acts was
equivalent to his previous anthority. There seems to
have been a mistake made at the argument in the
idea that this act did not fall within her authority as
wife. Neither did it, but it did fall within her authority
as manager of the plantation, and in oar
opinion, eveu bound Iter husband to the penalties of
the 1423 Section, so far as they could be enforced at
any time against tbe owner of any plantation. It
will be observed that tbe imprisonment clause in
said Section is a mete means of enforcing the payment
of tbe fine. The question raissd under the
1423 Section seems lo be not of much weight, for it
would be impossible to imprison an absenteo owner
or a company of share-holders, and yet when the
agent keeps nil the terms of the contract the other
party to the contract would be bound by it.
Secondly, it is said that the contract is not binding
on tbe defendants, because the agent, G.
who took the acknowledgment to the contract
was appointed some days before the law could go
into elTcct, to wit : on the 28th of September.
It is nlleged that the law under which this acknowledgment
was taken and which is amendatory
of the Act of the 20th of July, 1872, passed His
Majesty's signature on the 25th of September, 187G,
and was not published until lbc 11th of October,
and therefore could not come into operation until tho
21st of October, whence an argument is drawn that
the appointment of the agent who took tho acknowledgment
of the contract of Puaaiki was inoperative
and void, and continued so for all time.
Whether the argument to the effect that this particular
law could not go iuto operation until ten
days after its publication on tbe Island of Oahu, is
valhi or invalid, it is certain tbat the law bad gone
into operation on tbe 3d day of November, at which
dilctlie acknowledgment was taken; aud the 4th
Section of the Civil Code, which is referred to, can
not in any way affect the authority of government to
appoint officers under a law which is to go into operation
within ten diys. And clearly it is the duty of
government to appoint officers in such time tbat they
may be retdy to carry out the provisions of tho law
when it shall come into force. And it is proper
that the public may have seasonable notice of the
person so authorized. The law itself (Section 4)
says that its object' is to put a limit to the time,
when ignorance of the law may be plead as a
Thirdly, It is urged against these contracts tbat
tbey do not indicate in what labor tbe defendants
are to be employed, and that they are not sufficiently
particular with regard to the place of performing
the labor; und the 1417 Section is quoted to support
that proposition. The section reads as follows:
"Any person who has attained the age of twenty
years, may bind himself or herself, by written contract,
to serve another in any art, trade, profession
or other employment, for any term not exceediog
Puaaiki's contract reads that tho said party of the
second pirt promises to perforin such labor for IL J.
Coolidge or his agent in the district of Koolaupoko,
Island of Oahu, as tbe said party of tbe first part
shall direct. Tli is a clear contract to perform
services as a general laborer or servant; and the
Hawaiian version which is not a literal rendering
(as it ought to be perhaps) has it " ma ka mahiai,
etc.," that is to say, " farming, etc.," and tbe place
designated in Puaaiki's contract is in the district of
Koolaupoko. This is a clear contract to perform
reasonable, ordinary acts of labor as he may be
directed in the employer's usual and ordinary
Now, there is no allegation that the men have
been required to perform any unusual and extraordinary
labor. The most that can be said of the
contracts is that tbey are loose ns far as regards the
style of labor to bo performed nnd were probably
meant to be so by both parties, so likewise with
regard to the place where it was to be performed.
Tbe laborers signed tho contract intelligently and
there is no allcgationmade that either of tbe
parties here have been sent to any place or subjected
to any exposure which was not reasonably
contemplated by themselves when they signed the
contract. If they wished to confine themselves to
any particular kind of labor, they should have
themselves caused it to have been designated in
their contract; so likewise, if they bsd wished the
space, over which they were to be sent, to have been
especially limited, tbey should have caused it to be
inserted in their contract. The contracts themselves
are not unusual or unreasonable iu their forms and
We notice that Kea's contract is expired by lapse
of time and has an endorsement on it that he should
work 4 days extra, and pay 3.00 costs of Court.
Thus on the papers it would appear that his time is
expired. Though it is said in the judgment of the
Police Magistrate that he has 112 days to serve la
his contract, it is not apparent bow the magistrate
arrived at that conclusion. Possibly it is an error
arising from not observing the date (year) or has
been extended in tone other way wli ch does not
appear. But we are not asked to pass upon this
point ana therefore we will not uo so.
Theso cases are entitled " King vs. Puaaiki," and
" King vs. Kea." The King is not a proper complainant
in such cases. la no respect do they fall
within the duties of the public prosecutor. The
employer in this case is seeking to enforce bis
private contract and makes use of the provisions of
the law for that purpose. The intitulation should
be in this case II. J. Coolidge vs. Puaaiki, and if a
different habit bos prevailed, tbe entering of cases
of this nature hereafter should be in accordance
with this ruling.
The judgment of the Police Magistrate is affirmed.
