H. Pain and Paul Neumann, plaintiffs in equity, brought suit against Cecil Brown, trustee, Talula Lucy Hayselden and Frederick H. Hay selden, defendants. The suit is over the Lanai ranch, the orators claiming that in accordance with the will of the late Walter Murray Gibson his daugh ter, Talula Lucy Hayselden, was giv en full power to sell, convey, grant, alienate or otherwise dispose of any part or the whole of the real estate be longing to the estate with the exception of the property bequeathed deceased's son; that Cecil Brown, the administra tor and trustee, Talula Lucy Haysel den and Frederick H. Hayselden, her husband, entered into an agreement on August 20, 1S9S, by which all the real and personal property devised and be queathed to the said Talula L. Haysel den, situate on the Island of Lanai, was to pass into the hands of plain tiffs for the sum of $100,000. Of this $70,5S9.0G, or thereabout, was to go to Wm. G. Irwin to satisfy and obtain the release of a mortgage due to him. After paying this the liens and claims existing against or upon the estate, including all taxes, rentals for land held under lease and all current ex penditures necessary to be made in the management of the Lanai ranch. including any and all expenditures necessary for the preservation and de velopment of the said property, the ex- cess after such payments was to go to Tolulo T. Tlovcolilon Tho nl n i n t i fFc ......ii av.uv... j,. claim further that they were given un- til the 2Sth dav of Ausrust. 1S99. to com- I ply with the terms of the agreement. This agreement was entered into at Lahaina. On August 25, 1899, plaintiffs pro cured an assignment to be made by Wm. G. Irwin to Claus Spreckels & Co., bankers, of Honolulu and an agreement was entered into by which the plaintiffs we given an extension of three years for the payment of the judgment lien, amounting to $70,587.00 with interest at G per cent. The plaintiffs claim to have paid $35,427.39 for interest, development, etc., on the Lanai ranch, commonly known as Palawai, and further that, upon claiming a deed in conformity with the contract entered upon, Cecil Brown, administrator and trustee, re- fused and still refuses to grant the same. On August 2S, 1S99, plaintiffs made tender of the sum of $12,S03.35 as per agreement, but Talula L. Hayselden refused and still refuses to accept the same. Plaintiffs state that, for the purpose of preserving the estate, it is neces sary that a proper and fit person be appointed as receiver and manager of said property until the matter is set tled in court. This suit is the sequel to the tender of money made in the Hawaiian Hotel office by W. II. Pain to Mrs. Haysel den. HACI1ELOKS TaXED. The Hessian Diet has passed a law requiring bachelors to pay 25 per cent more income tax than married men. The Woman's Journal warmly ap proves of the distinction thus made between the taxes of men who sup port families and of men who support only themselves. The Woman's Jour nal also advocates legislation which will equalize the wages paid women and men. The law placing an espe cial tax upon bachelors seems to be intrinsically just. So far as the law fixes the rates of wages, the obliga tions different classes of wage-earners have undertaken should be considered. To be thoroughly consistent the Wom an's Journal should admit the justice of higher compensation for men who have families to support than for eith er men or women who have only themselves to care for. It is difficult, however, to frame a law which will meet either individual cases or classes of cases which employers have to deal with. The employer's first care is for his own interest; his second, for the interest of the State. He employs the man or woman whose labor has the greatest value to him, and pays wages in proportion to the value of the work performed, trusting the man or woman who is most Jiberally paid to recognize his or her duties to society. Laws de signed to protect those least able to protect themselves often work an in jury to the class for whose benefit they were intended. In some cities laws re quiring employers to provide seats for saleswomen have been indirectly com plied with by substituting salesmen for saleswomen. It is clearly, howev er, within the province of law to pre vent an approach to inhuman treat ment of employees. Laws prohibiting the employment of minors more than a given number of hours a day are in the interest of society, though in some cases they may prevent the employ ment of minors. The Hessian Diet which imposed a tax on bachelors in comes came within two or three votes of laying a double tax on women's bi cycles. Doubtless the purpose in this case was to discourage the use of wheels by women. MESSENGER SERVICE. Honolulu Messenger Service dellrer messages and packages. Tel. 278. NEGLECT A Common Case tf Piles It may Lead to Serious Results. (From the Sydney Herald.) When people generally understand that all such fatal diseases as tisutla, ulcer of the "rectum, fissure, etc., al most invariably begin in a simple case of piles, they will learn the wisdom of taking prompt treatment for the first appearance of trouble in this quarter. Doan's Ointment will certainly cure every form of piles itching, bleeding, protruding, or blind piles and hundreds of lives have been saved -by using this cheap, effective remedy right at the start, because at such a time a single pot will effect a cure, while in the old chronic, d?ep-seated cases, several pots are sometimes nec essary before a lasting cure is effectea. Here is a case: Mr. William Gilliver, of the well known firm of Gilliver &. Curtis, rail way and general contractors, and whose private address is "Avoca," Bankstown, has written the following unsolicited letter, which we herewith publish In full: Messrs. Foster-McClellan Co., 7G Pitt St., Sydney, N. S. W., February H, 1S99. Dear Sirs: In justice to you anl suffering humanity I write to say that j I suffered from itching piles for 22 i years. I tried many doctors and pret ty well all kinds of patent medicines, but got relief for a short time only. Seeing your Ointment advertised 1 bought a pot and did not use more than one-half of it, not . six months ago, and I am perfectly cured. You may use this as you wish. Yours gratefully, WILLIAM GILLIVER. It cannot be repeated too often that Doan's Ointment will cure itching piles. IT WILL CURE THEM ABSO LUTELY. But do not take the manu facturer's word for this; ask or write Mr. Gilliver; he knows, for it cured him, and he lives in Bankstown, a su burb 12 miles from Sydney. Is not that the best possible kind of proof? Could tllor vAttPr?

THE AMERICAN BEGGAR'S MECCA. (Popular Science Monthly.) Ten per cent of all the human be ings who die in New York city are buried in Potter's Field at public ex pense; but the records of organized charity, official and semi-official, show that less than 1 per cent of the living are paupers, or dependent persons. There are two explanations of the dif ference -between the number of living poor and penniless dead. The chief one is that abuse of public charity has grown to such proportions that the city has become the Mecca of the r'hrm'ip irilpra nnrl tPflinns f)f the en tire country. It is easier for an Indus- trious and shrewd professional beg gar to live in luxury in New York than to exist in any other city in the world. No magic wand of ancient fa ble was ever more potent to unlock the gates of castle or prison than the name of charity to open a way to the public treasury. The liberal and well nigh indiscriminate giving of the money of the taxpayers for the relief or sickness ana poverty nas oeen commanded by law, and sanctioned by custom and approved by public opin ion until the possibility of checking or reforming the abuse grows more and more remote as the burden increases and the evil results multiply. The city of New York gives annu ally to public charity more than $3, 000,000, and contributes indirectly $2, 000,000 more. Of the money raised by (State taxes, interest and county ex- penses eliminated), almost 12 percent is properly chargeable to relief of pov erty and sickness. Of this expenditure. more than $3,000,000 is paid to pri vate institutions and societies over which the citv authorities have no control or supervision. SIXTY-FIVE MILLIONS AN ACRE. One of the surest and safest ways of becoming rich beyond the dreams of avarice would be to possess a few acres of land in the heart of the city of Lon don, or, in fact, a single acre would make one wealthier than the most lucky miner that ever starved at Jo hannesburg. The highest price ever asked for land in London was at the rate of $65,000, 000 per acre. The golden spot was in Bermondsey, where a few years ago a small piece of property was offered to a railway company at that rate. The railway company declined to buy.' Ground about Lombard a street is worth not less than $10,000,000 an acre. The Marquis of. Salisbury owns five acres of land at Charing Cross, which 250 years back, was leased for grazing purposes to his ancestors at the rate of $2.5o an acre for 500 years. These few acres are now worth about $5 per foot. COST OF LAUNCHING. The cost of launching a battle-ship runs away with something like $10,- 000. The great leviatham requires some five tons of tallow and over a ton of oil and soft soap to persuade her to leave her cradle and glide peace fully into the water. DON'T R. C. A.
