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
This proceeding shows the great need
of having several wise lawyers in the
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
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
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
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.
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
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

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

Outward applications do not cure, they
only drive the difficulty to new quarters.
Emollients may palliate, they cannot

way out, and that is to eliminate the

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.
