and for the City and County of San
Francisco was a Court of general
jurisdiction created by the Jaws of
the btate of California.
II.
"That on the 9th day of January,
A. D 1S78, one Thomas Newell com
menced his action in said Court
against defendant John M. Horner,
, and ono K. 1. Beard, by liling his
complaint therein atd causing sum
mons to be issued, which summons
was personally fcerved on thi9 de
fendant. III.
"That on tho 23J day cf April, A.
D. 1879, the aid Thomas Newell

defendant for the sum of two thou
sand tive hundred and foriy seven

(S1008 17-100) dollars.

the proceeds collected thereunder
and that this action i- prosecuted by
these plaintiffs for the benefit of
their said assignee James A. Low.

"That though thereto requested
the defendaut has failed and neglect
ed and still neglects and refaeea to
pay said sum due upon said judg

to plaintiff the said sum of (1008.17
100) four thousand eight and 17-100
dollars.
"Wherefore plaintiff demands
judgment against the defendant for
Baid sum of ($1008.17-100) four thou
sand eight and 17-100 dollars with
interest thereon nntil paid and for
his costs of suit and that process
usuein accordance with law."
A demurrer was interposed in the
Circuit .Court First Circuit on three
grounds as follows:
"First: That said declaration
,shows no privity of contract or of
obligation between said plaintiffs
and said defendant.
"Second: That plaintiffs hava no
right, aa the legatees of the judg
ment mentioned in said declaration,
to maintain an action thereon in
their own names.
"Third: That it appears by said
declaration that the judgment men
tioned therein is barred aud outlawed
by the statutes of limitations of the
State of California, and of the
Hawaiian Kingdom, and that no
action can now be maintained there
on." The demurrer was sustained by
the Coort, to which the plaintiffs
excepted.
We were not favored with an
argument on the various poiDts,
plaintiffs' counsel conceding that the
complaint was demurrable in some
respects, but we were aked to deter
mine whether administration could
be granted in this country upon an
111 lXT T
e-tate whore only assets were a judg
ment. Ab this i'iestion is not raised by
the plhdib- onr opinion npon it
would be f 'jiicr ilirtum and wo would
Lot bo authorized to express it.
In ordnr to make our record com
n'ete and meet the issues presented
we fcustain the demurrer upon the
lirst and second trrouDds. As to the
third point we do not feel called upon
to decide so important a matter with
out further argument.
Demurrer sustained.

A
Glasgow Daily Tells a Wonderful
Story of His Exploits.
Ilia l.anful Wife n the Vfrjatli De
termined to Set Out for
Honolulu.
To the people who knew John
Dnminia as a lad, and also have
knowledge that he came from
Utica, X. Y., tho following yarn
from a Glasgow paper will be read
with interest :
Several years aco a Delmatian sailor
nam-d J-rk Domiuia fouud his way to
the Hawaiitii Islands, after innumer
able hir breadth escapes and feats of
valor by the way. In due time he
married Liliuokalani, the daughter of
a native chief, who afterward became
Queen, making him partaker of the
honors of royalty. As King he bore
the name of Hermann I For twenty
year3 he governed Ids subjects sat Isfao
torlly, and toward the end of 1S91 he
died; his sou, Herrnaun If, is only G
yeais old and his widow is the Regent.
Now this lady, kuowiug that her
late npouse was a European, has been
making strenuous efforts to discover
bis relations, aud whenever a ship
touched at the port she always made it
a point to go ou board aud question
the captain us to whether he knew
any Dominis of Delmatia. Foralong
time the widowed Queea's endeavor
to find King Hermann's relatives were
uusucces-fu, hut lately the Imperial
Austrian Corvette, Fasana, touched at
the Hawaiian Islands, The Dowager
Queen went on board and ask-d ttie
Admiral whether he could tell her
anything about the Dominis family at
Dalmatia. He answered in the nega
tive, but, noticing the lady's desire to
learn omethingabout them, promised
to make iuquiries of the Marine De
partment of the War Ministry.
The matter was then referred to the
Foreign Office, which published an
advertisement calling upon all the
Domiul-esof Drlmatia to come for
ward, whereupou there was a repetl
tlon of what occurred when the
American Spiritualistic medium
called for the spirit of "John Smitb."
Thousands of Dominises are said to
have reported themselves, personally
or by letter, for the name was a very
common one in those parts. King
Hermann's sister was, however, dis
covered, aa was also his lawful wife;
for it appears that the late King mar
ried in Delmatia when only a sailor.
This woman now demands that the
Hungarian Government should help
her to her rljrhts. She does not seek
to become Queen of the Hawaiian
Irlands, but she a-ks to bedeclared the
legitimate heir to her husband'a prop
eity. .Should the Huuga ian Govern
ment refuse its help, the energetic
wiitow is determined to eet out for
Honolulu aud appeal directly to her
t-ncc-sful rival, Queen Lilluokalaui,
the widow of her own husband.

VOLCANO OF KILAUEA.
Concession Granted for its Repro
duction at Georgia Exposition.
Mr. E. V. McConnell has secured
from the Cotton States and Inter
national Exposition Company, to
be held at Atlanta, Georgia, from
September 18th to December 31st,
1895, a concession for a reproduc
tion of the burning volcano of Ki
lauea, the largest active volcano in
the world, eays the advance sheet
of the Exposition Department of
Publicity. It is situated on the
side of Mauna Loa, 4000 feet above
pea level, and ten miles from the
Pacific. According to Hawaiian
mythology, the god of the Bea fell
in love with Pele, the goddess of
fire, and pursued her to Mauna
Loa. There she took refuge in the
burning volcano cf Kilauea. When
it is in eruption, Pele is tupposed
to be angry, and the kahuna or
priest offers prayer, with sacrifices
of animals or children. The god
dess Pele will be represented as
rising from the flames when called
forth by the incantation of kahuna.
She will be personated by a beau
tiful HawHiian girl. The court
singers of King Kalakaua will tiug
the religious eongs of the Hawai
ians. Bounty for litct ?nar.
Omaha, Neb., March 1. The
Nebraska legislature has decided

by the solid democratic and inde
pendent vote.
