STSAHLMAVN Merchant mreet Mei chant street Fort f.trt-et Huwaiin Hotel Flv Outs per luity. FRIDAY AujjiiHt 12th. Blsiness talk is in order. The Al-vertiskk wants a fair ti. kt t nominated. Hawaiian politics are no pur. r Mum politics elsewhere. Tiit man in the moon is the on!v dis interested spectator of t la A aiian affairs. Bkttek ascertain the defe ts in the new Constitution, and the remedy will ba easy. Nativk Hawaiian will nominate a strong ticket for the Nobles if 1hey earrv out their present intentions. The Ramie Company has shipped the output of a six-and-a-half acre Held. The account sales will show its value. A bom s on the production of beet sugar will probably be granted by the United States Congress next session. Members of the Third Ward flub deny that it "kicked over the traces." They say it never put on Loss harness. We take it all back. Boss is in is getting a rouh deal, but it will die hard. Majority rule is good, but it is not always just. The representation of minorities has been engrafted upon the English elective ttytitem. This was eon Hide red essential to a fair representation of the British people in the Imperial Parliament. MEAT SUPPLY. The production of beef is in excess of the consumption at Honolulu. Triees of fat cattle have fallen of late years until at present fat bullocks bring about 'Jo top price. There is a much lower range of values of course, and the ten dency is downward. However, the re tail price of beef does not vary at all from what it was when fat bullocks brought $1) or $"0 each. It is of course the interest of htock raisers to get, the highest possible price for their cattle, and so share profits with the butrber, or middleman. To that end, we under stand that the owners of three large cattle raising ranches have secured an interest in the leading butchering busi ness of this city. The result must be advantageous to them, and consumers stand a chance of getting a better quality of meat. Be this as it may, however, the price to consumers w ill remain un changed. This brings us to the further point that another outlet must be found for Islands cattle or the country will be come overstocked. This should be avoided if possible because it not only loses money to stockowners, but it im poverishes the country by exhausting the food supply. There is a possible outlet to Tahiti, but the trend of trade is not in that direction, and transportation would be difficult and costly. Samoa is not available either, because it could be much more cheaply and easilj' reached from New Zealand and cattle can be bought as cheaply there as here. The Pacific Coast is capable of supplying its own needs, and is shipping to Eastern points. What remains therefore to do, is to increase the consuming population as speedily as possible, and that can only le accomplished by promoting col onization and land settlement. Mr. Dillingham is in England forwarding such a scheme, and Hon. S. i. Wilder's railroad project is in the same line ex actly. Unfortunately recent political events here put a damper upon these Kentlemen's efforts, but we hope for the best in each case. The matter is one of very great importance to this country, and we trust it will have a practical so lution. THE CREDIT SYSTEM. In these stringent times the credit system forces itself upon the attention of everyone engaged in business. Col lections are dull; to some extent they are impossible. Money is not in circu lation as freely as in times past, and xjlitical unrest has checked investment. That this is only temjorary is what everyone hojes; but hoping will not effect a remedy. Action is needed. Those who believe, in the stability and resources of the country and we believe nearly eerybody does should be w ill ing to assist in bringing about a more healthy condition of affairs (ban n exists. Attention should be gien to something outside of polities, and sound business methods should be adopted. The modification of the credit system is a preliminary step in that direction. It cannot be done by any arbitrary act, but gradually under an agreement with im porters who Fustain the entire credit fabric. It is not for us to suggest bow this can be accomplished. The. Cham ber of Commerce, composed a it is of clear-beaded and exjerieiiced busings ieu, might be able to suggest a suitable method. Our evening contemiHrary, we are pleased to see, is f the same opinion as the Aivi:uii-i !; on tin's Mib- jevt. i SaioimI Whi-'I Reform C'ui. A meeting of th eo-.nd Ward lie form t lub was held last celling in the Ly-c-'um, Mr. Henry Waterhoue in the chair. The attendance was quite large. The minute of the previous meeting were read and adopted. The Secretary, Mr. J. F. Morgan, stated that before they got through there would be nearly 200 names on the roll. Mr. C. B. Reynolds, employed by the Board of Health, asked that hi name be withdrawn from the Committee on Credentials. His resignativn was ac cepted, and E. C. Lowe elected to fill the vacancy. Mr. Turrill was called upon for a speech, and said that he thought the Ward would be able to send nine dele gates to the Con vent ion. In the course of his remarks, which were quite lengthy, he said that out in the West there were two requisites to make a man a politician one that he cuiild take a drink, the other that he could make a speech. Messrs. J. I. Tucker, Waiwaioie, S. Savidge, Smith and others also made remarks. tourlli Varl K4ir.ii luo. A meeting of the Fourth Ward Iieforin Club wa h.dd lat ni.d-t at the Govern ment Building. 'i he uttenuance was j moderately large, including a considera- i ble proportion of Hawaiians. The busi ness was chiefly of a formal character. Mr. Joseph W. Kawaiuui tendered his resignation as a delegate, which was ac cepted, he having been asked to become a candidate. Supreme Court le islons. The following decisions were filed yes terday : W. C. Parke, assignee of T. J. Mobs man, bankrupt, vs. M. P. Kobinson and I. N. Kobinson. From July term. Jury waived. Before Mr. Justice Preston. I! CIMON. This is an action of trover brought to recover certain stock in trade, consisting of crockery, glassware, etc., belonging to the bankrupt, r its value. It ap jcared from the , i tcuce that on April 1, 18til, Jane- iJob'nsoii and Kobert Lawrence gnmle i a lease of a store, corner of King .md Nuuanu streets, Ho nolulu, to T. an I T. I. Mobsman, for the term of three years from date, "with the privilege of holding the same, three ad ditional years," at the yearly rent of $1,0:?0, payable quarterly. That at the expiration of the said term no other lease or agreement was made, and the tenants and the survivor, T. J. .Moss man, remained in possession of the prem ises, paying the same rent as reserved by the lease, until the bankruptcy of the said T. .1. Mossman, which occurred on theUh day of January, 1887, on which day the defendants, w ho had become the owners of the premises, distrained and removed the goods in question for one year's rent, due on the first day of the said month. The plaintiff was apiointed assignee of the bankrupt's estate, and claimed that the distress was illegal. On behalf of the plaintiff it was con tended that at the expiration of the term created by the lease the lessees continued in possession as tenants at will only, and therefore under the statute relating to distress for rent the plaintiffs had no right to distrain, or at most for four months rent only. I am of opinion that the defendants are entitled to judgment. The lessees, on the expiration of the term, became tenants from year to year, subject to the tenancy being determined by proper no tice. The statute allowing distress for rent does not limit the right to any defin ite time, or to any express amount. It provides that no goods shall be liable to be taken on execution, unless the party suing out the same shall pay all arrears of rent, provided the same shall not exceed one year, if the tenancy be by the year, or four weekly or monthly payments if the ten ancy shall be by the week or month. This provision cannot apply in this case. The defendants having distrained and removed the goods before the order to the Marshal to take possession was made are entitled to hold the proceeds, and I therefore find for the defendants, and direct judgment to be entered for them with costs, as of the July term. Edward Preston. Cecil Brown for plaintiff, W. A. Kin ney for defendants. Alexander J. Cartwright. trustee of the estate of Thomas Cummins, vs. Kiehard Oliver and A. S. Cleghorn. From April term. Jury waived. Before Mr. Justice Preston. DECISION. This is an action by the plaintiff, as the trustee of the estate of the late Thomas Cummins, as the holder of a promissory note for $1,00(1 made by the defendant, Kiehard Oliver, on December -4, 1S77, in favor of A. S. Cleghorn Co., and payable six months after date, and indorsed by A. S. Cleghorn to the deceased. The defendant , Oliver, allowed judg ment to go by default. The defendant, A. S. Cleghorn. pleaded the general issue and gave notice that be would rely upon want of notice of dishonor and the statute of limitations. The note was indorsed by the defend ant Cleghorn. "protest waived." I am of opinion that the indorsement did not dispense with notice "' dishonor, and I ai-o find that the defence of the statute of limitations is sustained. I therefore decide that the defendant is entitled to judgment, and do order the same to be entered with costs. EiW KD Pit I s To. Cecil I'.piwn for plaintiff; F. M.

The Pacific Commercial Advertiser having been purchased by the under signed, it will henceforward be con ducted as an independent newspaper, in the interest of law and order. Its columns will always be bjen to the public for reasonable presentation of grievances, and the independent ex pression of thought and opinion. It will endeavor to get at facts of a public nature and present them regard less of consequences. Faction, however powerful, or usurpa tion however successful, shall receive no quarter. It will uphold the Constitution and laws of the Kingdom, and advocate equal civil rights for native and foreign born subjects. Class legislation and unequal repre sentation will be opiosed as wrong in principle and contrary to the progressive spirit of the age. Manhood suffrage, with residence, should be the basis of the franchise, as in the United States.- Property qualifi cation should be abolished. Office-holders and Government con tractors should not be eligible for nomination or election to the Legisla ture. Members of the Legislature should be debarred from accepting any office of honor, trust or emolument under the Government foi a ieriod of twelve months after the expiration of the Legis lative term to which such members were elected. Ministers should be held responsible for all appropriations, and no money vote should pass without Ministerial aj proval. Reduction of taxation and economy in expenditure are essential to the pro gress and prosperity of the country. To that end a reorganization of the Depart ments is necessary. Personal fitness and a good reputation should be the only requisites for official appointments. This implies a thorough overhaul of the civil service. The military should be subject to the civil power. The indeiendence and integrity of the Bench must be upheld.' A corrupt or partial judiciary i a curse to any country. Encouragement should be given .to immigration for the two-fold purpose of developing the natural resources of the Kingdom and rendering possible the es tablishment of new industries. The public lands should be adminis tered for the public good arid not for the enrichment of individuals. A well-considered and feasible policy of improvement works should be adopted and adhered to. The United States being the natural market for Hawaiian products, public policy should be directed toward strength ening existing political and commercial relations with that country. Honolulu should be proclaimed a free port, and increased facilities provided for the repair uf shipping and the handling of merchandise. Steamship and cable communication with the Pacific Coast and Australia should be encouraged. Sugar being the staple product of the country, those engaged in its production are entitled to have their interestsstudied by the Government. The public debt should not be in creased. There is ample revenue if an honest accounting were made of receipts to pay interest on loan, defray reason able expenses of Government, and carry out a progressive system of public works. The public school system should be sustained and improved. Hawaiian children should be taught exclusively in English to equip them for the duties of life. Instruction in English alone should be similarly given to children of foreign parentage. The sanitation, lighting and improve ment of the city of Honolulu are matters of paramount importance. A policy of interior development, by means of highways, etc., will be advo cated. In brief, all matters and things tending to the benefit of the country, and I to the promotion of peace, ordr and '. good government, will have an advocate and exjncnt in the Pai trie Commi kit al Anvi KTIsLK.
