Tho annexation club and the people of Honolulu have decided that the Boston cannot he allowed to leave these shore3 without being given a popular reception in keep ing with the fact3 of history as they have transpired here within tho past year. Since the fall of the monarchy both manners and cus toms have been taking 0:1 a demo cratic air in Hawaii, and the fact that the American residents should see fit to say "Aloha Boston" in this manner is at least a patriotic and semi-national tribute to the brave men who were first 011 shore and would be the last aboard in case their presence was needed. None appreciate the rank and file of the Boston so much as the Amer icans resident here whose lives and property were protected by them when they landed in last January. Endorsed by their fel low citizens and supported by the American colony in Hawaii they have made a record of which they may bo hereafter proud and never ashamed. Wc anticipate the "aloha" to be given the Boston will be no less than their merits deserve or they have al ready won from the American colony and the Annexation club in Hawaii. There is no uncertain pound to tho Americans of Hawaii today, and it is known that the "aloha" to the Boston on next Monday night will be a national as well as an international expression of opinion from the dominant poli tical and moneyed power of the country. POLICE COUHT CASE. Lawyer Magoon Talks mainly to the Holonma Editor. Mr. Editor : If I were not cer tain that you would not permit anything appearing in the Holo mua to disgrace the columns of the Advertiser, I should ask you to republish an article appearing yes terday in that excuse for a news paper,entitled "An Apparent Injus tice," which, pretending to attack Magistrate Robertson, is really di rected against myself. The com plaint against the magistrate is that he sentenced a New Hebrides by the name of Jack to pay a fine of $10 and f3 costs of court, for using vulgar and profane language last Sunday in one of the public streets of Honolulu. According to the uncontradicted statements of the one witness (and there were many others who could have testified to the same effect) the language used by the defend ant was most revolting, aggravated by brutally indecent conduct, in a thickly populated portion of the city. The maximum penalty is if 20 fine, or imprisonment one month at hard labor and it wa3 really a case that called for the highest penalty. Although the Holomua doe3 not stand quite as high in my opinion a3 George Washington, I had never suspected that even its editor was quite so depraved as to sanction such con duct as Jack was guilty of by de manding a reprimand. My only surprise i3 that he did not print the testimony, as it is, ac cording to his admissions, about on a par with his moral standard. After this startling confession of his, I am not surprised that he should look with no little concern at the ominous prospect. Hi3 out raged feelings, however, did not prompt him to offer his eervices to defend poor Jack nor to open his purse to a degree corresponding to his injured feelings. Our district magistrate has noth ing to fear so long as he looks with no signs of approbation upon offenders against the peace and public mor als. But the most mysterious part of the article to me is that while I did not ask the court to punish the defendant severely, and certainly did not display any heat or per sonal feeling in the matter, I should be attacked by H113 moral ist editor of the Holomua, not hav ing the distinguished honor of knowing who he is, or who in spired the article. The only solu tion that I can give is that I have either prosecuted him for a similar offence, or that I have been obliged in the regular course of business to send the marshal after him with an execution.

Macfarlane T.ohcs on a Technical Point, III Claim for Damages In not Proving au Ouster. Elsewhere is published this morning the full text of the deci sion of tho supreme court on the appeal of the million dollar suit, the litigation over which has occu pied the attention of the courts for three years past. Both sides have been represented by leading at torneys of the city, and the legal struggle has been a long and hard fought one. The decision is virtually a vic tory for Spreckels, the main issue in the suit being the question of damages claimed by Macfarlane of Spreckels, for the use and occupa tion of some thousands of acres of sugar land for six years past, and which claim the decision sets aside as no ouster has been proved. The court allows, however, a parti tion of this very valuable tract of land, known as the Waikapu commons, on which the Hawaiian Commercial Company has very ex tensive cane fields and valuable improvements, and which land is owned jointly by the sugar estates represented by Mr. Spreckels and Mr. Macfarlane. It is said that the failure to prove an ouster, on which the whole ques tion of damages seems to hang, was due to Mr. Macfarlane's man ager omitting to pull down a fence, or do some such act, to show ad verse possession of the land fenced and cultivated by Spreckels' com pany. Commissioners will probably be appointed by the court to make the partition of the land at an early day. Hatch for plaintiff; Hartwell, Carter, Thurston fc Frear for de fendant. The sum of $42,000,000 in gold has reached New York from Eu rope during the past seven weeks ; and this vast importation has of course contributed largely to the betterment of the financial situa tion. "What do we care for abroad?" asked an intelligent tariff ite in the course of the debate on the McKinley bill. The above fig ures show how "abroad" has cared for us during the worst of the pinch.

RQ3ERT LOUIS STEVENSON PAYS A VISIT TO HONO LULU. lie Accord the " AdvertUer ' Interview on Affairs lu Among the passengers by the fteamer Mariposa yesterday for Honolulu was Mr. Robert Louis Stevenson, the famous author and journalist of Samoa. He is accom panied by Messrs. Graham Balfour and A. S. GoolJ. A Samoan servant is attendant upon the party. Mr. Htevenson's presence here is owing to a slight attack of fever and a desire for a change of scene, and the benefits of a sea vo3age. These induced him to visit this city, where he is well known, having made several previous visits. He is pleasantly located at Bella Vista cottage out at the popular San Souci resort. Mr. Stevenson will remain in Honolulu until the 2-Sth, re turning home via the Alameda. When a reporter of this paper called to see Mr. Stevenson last evening, that gentleman had retired, but he arose and re ceivedthe news paper man most courteously and cordially. In reply to a question regard ing affairs in Samoa, Mr. Ste venson stated that, pvprvthinc was quiet there sobeut l. btevessox. time, and would continue so as long as an English war vessel remained in the country. "When he left Samoa two German and one English men-of-war were stationed there. In the event of the British ves sel being recalled, Mr. Stevenson in clined to the belief that war would almost immediately follow. The Ger man vessels were not either capable of controlling or defeating the na tives. They always acted in conjunc tion with the British commander. There is considerable discontent among the Samoans, and a change of dj-nasty would surely follow if war was indulged in. The natives in the southern portion of the islands are actively engaged in warlike demon trations at the present time. There is every reason to believe, continued Mr. Stevenson, that the British vessel now there will soon leave; if such Kroves to be true, war would inevita Iy occur. What makes it probable that the vessel would leave was the fact that the ship had been in those waters for a longer period than here tofore. There are no American ves sels in Samoa and haven't been for two years. Regarding the workings of the now famous tripartite treaty, Mr. Stevenson said that what the peo ple of Samoa most desired was the withdrawal of the three powers and let them govern themselves. Of course, there would be internal dissen sions, but such was of no great conse quence. News Is expected to arrive by the Alameda from the three powers in regard to what disposition shall be made concerning the deposed mon arch Mataafa, who, with a number of his high chiefs, is now confined on one of the islands. It is not likely that Mataafa would ever again become king, but some other person age would surely find favor with the people as a sovereign leader. The present king, Malietoa, is a most unpopular ruler, and is only kept in power through the ofllces of the three powers. An interesting ex position on Samoan affairs was recounted by Mr. Stevenson, show ing the habits and conditions of the people. He stated further that a mild type of measles was epidemic in Samoa, but no fatal results had followed. Though the country was never visited with such before, the people were taking extraordinary good care of themselves. Of all the white persons resident in the islands Mr. Stevenson is perhaps better posted on Samoan affairs than any one else. This being generally conceded, his expressions, therefore, can be relied on as being authentic. Mr. Stevenson is at present engaged on several new books and stories. He does not contemplate a visit to the United States for some time. Like most all noted journalists Mr. Stevenson is most gracious to news paper reporters, and is available to them at any hour of the day or night. Besides having these good and charitable qualities, he is a most agreeable and obliging genteman. Marshal's Sale.
