Five Cents per 4'oit.
We understand that a sum of $485,000
on loan account has been placed to the
credit of the Hawaiian Government at
the Rank of California, through the
Rothschilds, London. This is the firs
English installment of the loan, but it.
is not available until the bonds are de
livered. The law requires the bonds to
be "signed by the Minister of Public Ac
counts and by the Registrar of Public
Accounts and be sealed by the seal of
the Department of the Minister of Fi
nance, anil shall not be issued at less
than 03 per centum of their nominal
par value in gold coin of the United
States of the present standard or its
equivalent." The place to issue the
bonds, therefore, appears to be at the
Hawaiian Treasury, Honolulu, and not
at the Pank of California, San Francisco.
Pe that as it may, however, the blank
coupon bonds for the new issue have not
been received, and when they come to
hand it will take considerable time to
sign, seal and issue them, while pre
serving an accurate record thereof. It
is unfortunate that such delays should
have occurred in this loan transaction,
and the end is not apparently at hand.
Of course the Government will take care
that the provisions of the Loan Act are
THOSE HOSPITAL FEES.
We have often to go abroad for news
of home. The San Francisco "Daily
Report" has an article on the extortion
practiced upon seamen shipping on Ha
waiian vessels at San Francisco, in the
shape of a "Hospital Tax," which con
tains information that might quite as
well have been communicated to the
public here. It appears that Mr. John
D. Spreckels, of the Oceanic Company,
has had a communication from the For
eign Minister on the subject of the ex
actions in question, and that His Excel
lency "promised to inquire into the mat
ter carefully, but he could not take
any definite action until after hearing
the full particulars and looking into the
law bearing upon the question." Mean
while Mr. Spreckels has taken "definite
action" by protecting sailors in the
Oceanic Company's employ sailing in
vessels under the Hawaiian flag. Mr.
Spreckels is reported to have said to an
interviewer: "I have given instructions
that these hospital fees shall not be paid
over to the Consul here until the vexed
question is settled. In the meantime I
propose to hold the money for the men
and to use every endeavor to get fair
play for those who are working for me.
Tne amount in question is not very
large tor each trip, but there is a grave
principle involved. The sailors of the
Hawaiian Mercantile Marine might next
lie told that they had to pay a tax to
support the Hawaiian men-of-war, or for
the improvement of their roads and
bridges. One is just as fair as the other.
I think, however, that everything will
be satisfactorily settled, and that within
a few weeks I shall get word to that ef
fect." There is much force in these remarks,
and the most humiliating part of the
business is that they are deserved.
The fees in question were col
lected, let us charitably hope, under
a misapprehension of the law. Put the
peculiar part of the business is that the
Queen's Hospital has not been benefitted
one cent by the large sum collected in
the aggregate from seamen as a Hos
pital Tax at San Francisco. What has
become of the money? It is the duty of
the Government, upon satisfying itself
'of 'the 'facts and the law, to order and en
force restitution. Less than this the
Government cannot possibly do under
if made acquainted with the wonderful
mis m store for
Recent visitors have gone

saw. It was the good fortune of iot a
few to witness the grand spectacle of
the lava flow from the fire-seamed side
of Mauna Loa. They were likewise
deeply impressed with the gloomy
grandeur of the crater of Kilauea, with
its steaming fissures and widespread
desolation. Others extended their trip
to Haleakala" House of the Sun" on
Maui, and on their return did not hesi
tate to declare that in their opinion it
was the grandest monument of volcanic
energy on tlse Islands, or more accu
rately, in the known world.
The point we wish to make, however,
is this: While the Oceanic Steam-hip
Company has done well to publish the
circular in question, the local steamship
companies and Royal Hawaiian Hotel
Company should equally do their share
towards making known the great and
varied natural attractions of these
Islands. Of course, these must all
profit more or less by the Oceanic Com
pany's intelligent enterprise, but that is
not sufficient. They should make it a
oint of business enterprise to "boom
the Islands." Southern California and
Florida have been made in this way;
and since the tide of American travel to
Southern Europe has been cheeked by
the recent disastrous earthquakes,
the time apjears to be opportune for
presenting the claims of Hawaii as a
health resort on account of climate, and
as containing the grandest and most
awe-inspiring works of nature, which
may be viewed without risk of any kind
It is not for us to indicate what steps
should be taken to his end. Our dujjy
is fulfilled by calling the attention of
those jK'cuniarily interested to the sub
ject. We may say, however, that if
tourist travel is to increase and spread
over the Islands generally something
must be done to extend and improve
hotel accommodation. The want of ade
quate hotel accommodation is a serious
drawback to-travel, and a frequent source
of disappointment and complaint. In
deed, it greatly lessens the amount of
ordinary interisland travel, and certainly
makes against the extension of tourist
travel. Another defect is the want of
suitable and safe landings at all points
touched by coasting steamers. TUis
defect should be remedied sjeedily. The
Legislature madu ample provision, for
such improvements last session.
Tlie T;uy;aii-A mer i-nn Treaty.
The text of the treaty between the
King of Tonga ami the United States
has been published. It was before the
Senate March 1st, and would probably
be acted upon. The customary articles
on peretual amity, personal security,
trade, commerce and navigation are in
serted. COALING STATION AT TONGA.
Section 6 says : Ships of war of either
of the high contracting parties may en
ter all port, all places and waters with
in the jurisdiction of the other, to
anchor and remain, take in stores, refit
and repair, subject to the laws and regu
lations of the country. To enable this
privilege to be carried out in .his do
minions the King of Tonga agrees to
secure to the Government of the United
States, by lease, at a nominal rent with
covenants of renewal, all rights of free
ue of the necessary ground in any har
bor of Tonga Islands which shall be mu
tually agreed upon, for the pur
pose of establishing a perma
nent coaling station, the rights
of Tongan sovereignty therein being
fully reserved and admitted in selecting
a station for the purpose due regard shall
be had for any similar concessions which
the King ot Tonga may have granted by
treaty to any other Government.
Mail steamers and whalers are to be
exempt from harbor and pilot dues,
and whalers are to be permitted to trade
for their own supplies without being lia
ble to pay a trader's license. The sale
of liquor, arms or ammunition is pro
hibited. Compulsory military service
is not to be enforced against Americans.
The arrest of deserters from vessels and
the appointment of Consuls are pro
Article XII provides that such Repre
sentatives of the United States in Tonga
shall have all jurisdictional
civil and criminal matters
their own citizens and vessels in con
formity with the statutes of the United
States and the law questions, and they
may call upon the authorities of Tonga
for aid in making arrests or enforcing
judgments, and citizens of the United
States charged with committing offenses
against Tongans shall be amenable only
to Consular jurisdiction, and shall be
punished according to the law of the
United States, except in certain cases.
The treaty is to continue in force ten
years, and thereafter until one year after

to terminate it, but Article VI is termin

PACIFIC COMMERCIAL ADVERTISER, MARCH 11, 1
an mir-iii iiniiimwn
Tho deceased will be remembered
quite a circle of friends in this city,
few years ago she paid a visit to Colonel
and Mrs. W. F. Allen, whose guest she
was for some time.
Commodore William T. Truxtun died
at his home, Norfolk, Va., February
25th. The deceased belonged to a fam
ily famous in the naval annals of the
United States. In 1870 he visited the
Islands in the U. S. S. Jamestown, and
many of our old residents will call him
to mind by the following incident:
Queen Kalama, widow of Kamehameha,
died October 20, 1370. Commodore
Truxtun lowered his flag on the James
town to half-mast as soon as he heard of
the event. Noticing that the IT. S. Con
sular flag in the city was not at half
mast, he sent six marines ashore to
lower it. Mr. Adamson was Consul at
that time, and stated as his reason for
not putting the flag at half-mast that he
had not received official notice from the
Minister Resident. A complaint was
lodged at Washington against the Com
modore, and a court martial was held.
Siiir m Court.
Wednesday, March 0th.
The Court in banco rendered its de
cision affirming the decree filed by Judd,
C. J., in the libel betw-een the Pacific
Navigation Co. and Samuel C. Allen,
owners of the steamer J. I. Do.vsett and
schooner Moi Wahine respectively. The
Court holds the Moi Wahine blameless
in the mameuvre performed in the
changing of her course when the colli
sion was inevitable, and blames the
steamer James I. Dowsett in not keep
ing a proper lookout at the time when
it was expected that she would meet
other vessels in the Molokai channel.
The decision was written by Preston, J.,
and is signed by all the Justices except
Judge Pickerton, who was one of the
counsel in the matter before his eleva
tion to the Supreme Pench.
BEFORE PRESTON, J.
Thomas G. Thrum vs. Pacific Com
mercial Advertiser Co. and R. J.
Creighton. Hearing on plaintiff's mo
tion for reopening of the case. The af
fidavit which accompanied motion
showed that notice of the granting of
the copyright was published in the "Ha
waiian Gazette" newspaper from De
cember .L 1S79. to Januarv 28, 18S0 in
clusive, nine issues. His Honor held
that even including the first and last
days, the law had not been complied
with. This was a penal statute. It im
posed penalties for infringement of cer
tain rights accruing under it ; but the
law was specific that before anyone
could claim to be entitled to benefit by
it he must do certain things, one of
which was to make publication for two
calendar months within a reasonable
time after a license had been granted.
His Honor was clearly of opinion, that
the requisite publication had not been
made, and pointed out how a nearer
compliance with the law might have
been accomplished even with the week
ly publication then available. Motion
overruled, and exceptions noted. L. A.
Thurston and A. C. Smith for plaintiff,
Hatch, Whiting & Creighton for defend
ant. In the case of J. II. Wood vs. B. F.
Dillingham, His Honor the Chief Jus
tice filed an opinion, ordering an amend
ment to the Master's report, to-wit, that
the value of the permanent improve
ments put upon plaintiffs land be the
sum of $3,070 20, to be paid by him tc.
defendant, who elected to give up said
land and to take value of his improve
ments. The Master, in his report, as
sessed the improvements at $4,670 20.
W. A. Kinney for plaintiff, F. M. Hatch
In the equity suit of Yim Quon vs. A.
J. Cartwright, guardian of the Holt
minors, demurred to on the ground that
the complaint contains no equities to
entitle plaintiff to an answer from the
defendant. His Honor Mr. Justice
Preston filed an opinion, overruling de
murrer and ordering defendant to ans
wer over in 14 days. This is a suit
where the plaintiff is tenant and defend
ant landlord of a piece of land in the
burnt district, Maunakea street, one
half of which had been appropriated by
the Government for road purposes.
Plaintiff prays for an apportionment of
the rent, which defendant as alleged re
fuses, but claims the full amount of
rent. Ash ford & A6hford for plaintiff,

The OM Street Car Horse.
The driver of a Madison street car wa.
io-'iring his team down town when he wa
somewhat startled to see a horse
devoid of harness come dashin;
Thnmn street. As he nut on the
;nid milled un his team the
rang the bell once as a signal to stop.
The effect on the runaway animal was in
stantaneous; he came to a halt and stooc
pulling and blowing beside one of the cai
horses. The driver stared vacantly at tht
new equine arrival until the conductoi
aroused him by ringing two bells as a sig
nal to start. As he mechanically let th
brake go and loosened his hold on the reins
the wild horse glanced at the driver ant
then jogged along with the team. By tlii;
time nearly all the passengers were watch
iug the antics of the strange hore. A few
blocks further down the conductor raivj
the bell for th car to stop, at which tPt
wild horse stopped also, keeping pace witl;
the car team. The conductor rang th
bell as often as he got a chance, while all
the passengers stood up and watched thfc
performance of the .horse. At a liverj
stable near Union street the knowing
animal suddenly swung off, gazed wist
fully at the car "as if undecided what tc
do, and then walked into the barn.
"Well, I'll be durned!" ejaculated tlit
driver. "I've seen horses afore now
what was street car crazy, but that fellow
beats 'em all. He takes the condition
powders. That horse is an old street car
rounder. ' I don't remember him myself,
but I'll bet there is men up to the barn
what knows him. Street car horses is
like lire engine horses no matter where
you put 'em they are always ready to go
back to the business." Chicago News.
