A PAINFUL CASE.
Forrnor Owner of Hooln. Plantation
Fined for Llbol
John MuKcajjuo was fined $1,0 in
the Distriot Court this morning for
Tho defendant who is an old man
and evidently imbecile oausod a
numbor of lottors to bo printed and
published in which scurrilous as-abortions
and inuondoos wore mado
against M. S. Grinbaum & Co. and
other prominent firms, individuals
General Hartwell on behalf of
Grinbaum & Co. proseoutod Mo-Keague.
It is understood that the
firm, knowing tho montal condition
of MoKeague had no deairo of
but the letter containing
a number of figures and accounts
supposed to support the absurd
allegations against the firm were
printed in tho libellous letter and it
was considered advisable to publioly
stamp the allegations of MoKeaguei
In tho Court Mr. Bolte, the man
aging partner oi unnuaum & uo.,
garo a cloar statement of the transactions
between his firm and
who at one timo was the
owner of Heeia Plantation.
MoKeague, who was not represented
by counsel, tried in a rambling
way to explain his reasons for
stigmatizing a numbor of prominent
business men as thieves and liars.
General Hartwell at ono timo felt
the situation so painful that ho expressed
a desire to engago a lawyer
for the defendant.
A nominal sentence of $10 was
imposed and was paid. The Magistrate
acted very fairly to tho old
man mid tried to assist him in his
endeavor to defend his position.
John McKcague was once a rich
aud prosperous planter. Ho met
reversep, which told on his mind,
aid ho was eventually declared non
compos mentis by tho Supremo Court.
His mania is that he firmly believes
that he has been robbed by tho people
with whom he has had business
relations. No notice has heretofore
been taken of his wild statements,
but (ho printing and publishing of
his allegod grievances in tho manner
rooently done had to be stopped
fcven if the hand of tho law had to
bo called in.
The demented man did not alone
besmirch the noblo and honest
names of Grinbaum, Bolte, CaBtle
and others of our best citizens. Hb
oven cast a slur at our virtuous
Supreme Court and stated in his
scurrilous letter that our beloved
Chief Justice is as much "7io)K:omp"
as the former owner of Heeia is.
Any man who can doubt tbo unselfish
honesty of Bolto and his
friends.and tho mental superiority
of 'the O. J. is a fit subjoot for an
asylum, and a $10 lino is cheap indeed
for exprossingsuch crazy views
Tho R. M. S. Miowora, Commander
Thomas Free, R. N. R.,

a ten days run from Victoria, Tho
steamer brings 280 tons of cargo for

Tho Miowora is disoharging her cargo
at the Oceania wharf. It is
that she will loavo early tomorrow
morning for the Colonies.
Pursor Humphries report of tho
Miowora's voyage roads as follows:
Left Victoria, 8:50 p. m. on Oot.

1:13 a. m. on tho 10th; two hours
lator tho wind rapidly froBhouod

this point a sorios of heavy gales

28. US,, vory high sea running ship

Tho ship will in all probability pick
up lost timo botwoen this port and
America for tho Hawaiians.
It is statod by tho Ohroniclo that
Samuel Parker, Hawaiian Minister
of Foreign Affairs under Queen
Liliuokalani, has come out in favor
of annexation. Mr. Parkor is a largo
land-owner, and doubtless his
material interest will bo advantaged
by annexation. It is, thorefore, not
surprising that these interests, together
with his affiliations with tho
Hawaiian Sugar Trust, should load
him to doolare for annexation.
Nothing but sentimontal interests
and a feeling of loyalty to his deposed
queen would incline him tho
other way. Mr. Parker is reported
in the Ohroniclo as saying: "I have
ooncluded that annexation would be
a blessing to our islands. The
hotter olassos fool as I do. I shall
return to tho islands at the end of
this month, and will bogin a cam
paign of education among my people,
showing them tho utter unrelia
bility of the reports aont from hero
which they aro mado to Taelievo
that under tho United States
they would have no voice
in their own government, and oould
never acquire tho elective franchise."
Before Mr. Parker begins his campaign
of education among tho Hawaiians,
wo hope that ho will begin
a campaign of education among the
Americans. If, as ho so plainly states,
theconditions of annexation iuvolve
the conferring of tho franchise upon
all of the natives of tho Hawaiian
Iilauds, we think the American people
ought to know it. If those islands
are aunexod, and if they are
ereoted into a State or States, and if
a Presidential election should hinge
upon the voto of tho State of Hawaii,
whioh voto would bo cast by
these natives, who, Mr. Parker says,
are "parsons of innocent and simpla
minds," wo think that the American
poople ought to know that, too. By
all means let Mr. Parker begin his
campaign of edueation among tho
Americans first. S. F. Argonaut.
