THE PACIFIC COMMERCIAL ADVERTISER : HONOLULU, APRIL 19, 1S9S.
THE PACIFIC Commercial Advertiser, W. N. ARMSTRONG - EDITOR. TUESDAY :::::: APRIL 10. A NIAV CODE. Representative Achi introduced las; Friday a bill in the House? which co-n-tataed a new code of civil procedure. Representative Robertson tried to kill the bill on the ground that the present Legislature had not sufficient time to consider it. Thi. attempt was defeated, and the matter was sent to the Print ing Committee. This proceeding shows the great need of having several wise lawyers in the House. laymen in England and America 'were always growling about the techni calities and intricacies of the law. There -was so much ground for com plaint and the courts made the admin istration of justice so scandalous, by all sorts of absurd, trifling and illogical decisions, that the people went into an insurrection about it. Mr. David Dud ley Field of New York City prepared hi 1850 a new code of laws for the State of New York, which regulated pro cedure in the courts. Gradually that code has been adopted by all of the progressive American States. The Aus tralian colonies have followed it. Even the English practice has been some what modified by it. The common -sense of civilized men revolts against the refinements of ab surdities that existed in the old fran chise. A owes B $500 which he refuses to pay. B sues him. The case comes before the court. The court asks B "did you try to collect this money be fore you brought suit, and if you did how did you?" "I went to A's house at Waikikl and asked him for it." "But," says the court, "you have not -stated in your bill of complaint whether you went to Waikiki to make the demand, by King street or by Beretania street." "What difference does that make?" "All the difference in the world. I dis miss your bill. You will pay B his costs." The new codes endeavor to put aside such nonsense, and simplify business. Owing to the influence of tropical climate on the white man, the pro cedure in the Hawaiian Courts has not changed, and it reflects on the in telligence of the Bench, the Bar and the people. At last, however, a new code is pre pared, with great labor. It presents a iwst. features of the American biiV - w codes. It gives to the Legislature with out cost, exactly what is needed. Some body has been patriotic and ambitious enough to attempt to put our courts in line with the American courts. Any thoughtful lawyer in the House would 'rise and say; "Let us thank the man who has done this protracted work. We cannot consider it at this session, but we should put it before the lawyers, judges and the public, so that at the next session it may he acted upon with intelligence." Fortunately, the lay members of the House refused to follow this attempt of a lawyer to fling out of the window a most valuable piece of work, and it was sent to the Printing Committee. We believe that if this draft of a new code of procedure, were submitted to the absent practitioners in the advan ced States of America, they would pro nounce it superior, in several respects to any existing code, and if it is finally adopted, it will be a credit to our jurisprudence. give her an increase of pension. The letter, which is a very lengthy one, has been printed by the Senate Committee on Pensions, that body having voted to increase her pension of $8 a month to $30 a month. She refers to the pension granted last year to Mrs. Dandridge, a daughter of President Taylor, explain ing that, she and Mrs. Dandridge stand in exactly the same relation to former Chief Magistrates. 'I ask that you ob tain for me the same increase of pen sion that Mrs. Dandridge receives,' writes Mrs. Semple, 'for at all points we stand alike, save that she has mar ried again, and that I represent four Presidents. James Monroe, William Henry Harrison, John Tyler, and Ben jamin Harrison were cousins through the Armisteads and Tylers of Vir ginia.' "Mrs. Semple adds that her necessity must plead for her, as "her pension of $8 a month for the service of her hus band in the Mexican war is her only income, and mentions the fact that after the death of her mother in Sep tember, 1842, she assumed the duties of the lady of the White House, and per formed them to the satisfaction of all." That the native women are ignorant of the distress that exists in cities ev erywhere is not singular. But this ignorance only injures themselves. It leads them to believe that their own hardships are due to the haole, and it creates political discontent. ANNEXATION. Miss Janet Jennings, the clever Washington correspondent of the N. Y. Tribune, writes to us that if the Cuban matter is settled without war. Con gress will be anxious to adjourn at once, the menus or annexation win make an effort to pass the joint reso lution, but may not succeed in getting the subject before the Senate and House. Should they fail, the matter will be brought up at the next meeting of iConeress in December. Miss Jen nings speaks of the good impression made by the visit of President and Mrs. Dole. It convinced some people that this Government was not compos ed of "thieves and pirates," as the Na tion asserts it is. It was a sad day for Extremists, in the States, repre sented hy the Nation, that Mr. Dole did not appear in a black flannel shirt, with a belt full of cartridges, a brace of pistols very apparent, and a couple of knives in his boot legs. The Na tion, while previously condemning "yellow journalism" in general, has furnished an enormous quantity of it ini reference to Hawaii. If yellow journalism means a conscientious re fusal to deal with facts, the Nation has, in our matters, put itself at the head of this colored literature. Mr. Nordhoff knocked it off its base, in the beginning, and it never has had the courage o? the New York Herald to put itself in line with the truth. Mr. Godkin might compose an interesting article an "How the Nation Missed it on Hawaii. New York Dispatch Says Treaty to Be Voted on. The Miowera mail was not. a large one, but it contained one letter or great importance to all citizens. Thi was received by J. B. Atherton and had for enclosure a New York telegram. The dispatch was to the effect that the advocates of Hawaiian annexation had decided at Washington to push the pending treaty to a vote in the Senate. This announcement, following on the heels of the accepted intelligence that the joint resolution was to be taken up, created decided sensation and was gladsome tidings to the annexationists. It is explained that certain Senators who have been opposed to the treaty in the past, have changed front on ac count of the foreign policy object les son given them during the existence of strained relations with Spain. There was talk at the post office of the out line of the President's message, the Chilcoot Pass disaster and the Andree balloon and "distressed Warnmoo" canards. SCROFULA It is Foul Blood's' Advertisement AND JL XF MM JIL KhJLm 3 MORAL OBLIGATION OF RACES. If the native woman correspondent of the Advertiser, whose clever letter appeared in its columns, several days since, would become familiar with so cial life in other countries, she would feel less bitterly towards the mis oirmririps " who she believes, have not acted with justice towards the natives It is unfortunate that she and the na tives generally, believe sincerely that the missionaries especially are under a peculiar obligation to the native race. They, as well as all enlightened people, are under the strongest obligation to act justly and generously towards the race. But the natives, on the other hand, are equally under obligations to do very many things which they have not done. No fair minded person, how ever, insists that the natives, with their ignorance of obligations should be measured by the same standard by which thf civilized races are measured. We quote here an interesting item which shows that women with the most distinguished connections sometimes have a hard time of it, in America. The daughter of an American President asks charity of Congress, not because she is really entitled to it, but because she hopes that Congress will be gen erous. "Senator Vest has received a letter from Mrs. Letitia Tyler Semple, a daughter of former President Tyler, and now one of the inmates of-ithe Louise Home, requesting that Congress PRIVATE SALE. .MRS.

The ob noxious orders from defec tive sewerage and many other causes ought to be overcome and that at once. But It Is Soon Cured by Hood's Sarsapariila. Yes, Scrofula, if anything, may be called the advertisement of foul blood. It is the ecourge of the world offensive, painful, debilitating, stubborn and well nigh unendurable. Outward applications do not cure, they only drive the difficulty to new quarters. Emollients may palliate, they cannot abolish the evil. There is but one sure way out, and that is to eliminate the taint from the blood. There is one remedy that can effect this, and it is the only one that, so far as we know, has almost invariably succeeded even, where the system has been poisoned by long years of taint, and the ravages to be repaired are tremendous. That remedy is Hood's Sarsapariila. Read this: " My daughter was afflicted with im pure blood. There were running sores all over her body and they caused her much suffering. We tried medicines that were recommended as blood purifiers, but could not see that they did any good. A friend told me about Hood's Sarsapa riila and I began giving the girl this med icine. The result was that she was per fectly cured after taking a few bottles. She has had no symptoms of scrofula sores since that time." Marietta M. Smith, South Middleborc, Mass.
