mend that tho item bo increased from $2t,r00 to

Tho Minister of Foreign Affairs, chairman of 11
Select Committeo to whom tho Items of "completing

stables" was refoi rod, presented n report. Thoy
were of opinion that the Pulaoo was a sub
stantial nnd safe building. Thoy reported the

tion to 4,000 ror walks, $'.',000 for alteration of

road " completion nnd furnishing of Palace $117,
fi00 nnd " Palaco stables" $15,000.
Tho roport was signed by two members only of
Threo members of tho same committeo also
recommended tho ooiuplotlon ot a distinct build
ing iu tho Palaoo grounds which would requiro au
Mr. O. It. lliahop sald.that nsono of tho com
mittee ho would Inform tho Assembly of his viows
on the additional amount proposed to bo appro
priated for tho now Palaco. lie was of opinion
that tho Palace could have boon better furnished
tor less moiioy than has been already expended.
It was to tho interest of mechanics to recommend
additional outlay. Tho Assembly ought to exor
cise moro rigid control over future expenditures,
lie was of opinion that now work should not bo
commenced without tho consent of tho Legisla
ture, and that the desire ot u King was not suQl-
cleat reason for making an appropriation.
Mr. Aholo moved that tho report of tho commit
tee bo adopted.
Mr. Gibson seconded tho motion.

Houso met ill 10 a. 111. Minntc.i of provious
mooting were read and confirmed.
Mr. Palohau introduced n resolution tlmt an item
of $1,500 bo appropriated for a Court honso and
lock-up at Knwailiau, Island of Kauai. Laid on

Third reading of an Act to amend Chapter !1 of
tho Session Laws ot 1878, relating to pissports.
Thiid rending of nn Act to amend Sections G-l,
05, (Hi of tho Civil Code, relating to auction liconses.
Third reading of au Act to amend Section 11,
Chapter 55 of the Penal Code, lelathig to danco
houses. This Hill pro ides for dances in Honolulu
and Wnilnku, 011 payment of 100 per nuuum, pro
vided the applicant has no Kiiiritiiccm-e.
Mr. Aholo supported this llill.nud w.isof opinion
that dancing was a harmless amusement.
.Mr. llishop said it was not necessary to haun
license to teach dancing or for people meeting to
gether for tho purposo of dancing. Hauciug by
moral mid well-intontioned peoplo is not objection
able, but if 11 man piys a Hcoiiko it is likely to be
come a resort for vices instead of dancing.
Mr. Nakookoo, tho iutioduccr of the Hill, said
permission had been giauted several.
Mr. ltico load for the first time n Hill to provide
for more ofiioioiit protection of female boarding
schools. This Dili provides for 11 fine of S-TOor
six mouths iuipiisouuicnt, or both, nt tho discio
tion of tho magistrate, iu cms of lawless poisons
intruding in female (seminaries.
Head a second time. Mr. Dishopsiid that theho
schools wero generally in charge of females, hav
ing no mull to act as n protector. Those circum
stances havo been taken advantage of by young
moil and boys, to the great annoy unco of the teach
ers and injury of tho schools. A legal gentleman
has said theio is not sufficient law at present to
meet theso cases, heuoo this special Act is asked
Air. Nawohi thought tho law was very good, bnt
ho thought it ought to apply to boyB' schools nlso,
ns the temptation is nsotteu ou tho side of tho
girls as ou that of tho boys. Ho had been a school
master, and during that period he had tho greatest
dilllculty to prevent tho girls from enticing tho
boys away. They would climb tlio trees and play
on Jews' liatps iu order to carry out their project.
Ho movod that tho bill boroferied tun Select Com
mittee. Mr. Widerannn said ho was in favor of tho Hill,
but ho was nvcrso to hasty legislation. Ho moved
that tho Hill bo referred to the Committee, ou Edu
cation iu order that it bo pat in piopcr form.
Mr. Kapeua moved that it bo referred to a Select
Committee, mid that tho Attornoy-Goneral bo
Chairman or that Committeo.
Motion carried to refer to a Select Committee:
W. II. llice, Attoruoy-Geiieral, G. W. Pilipo, G. L
Itichardnou and H. A. Widomaun.
Mr. Wideuiauu, Chairman of tho Finance Com
mittee, rend tho following lopoit:
7'u the Hon, Gtxlfrtii Ithmles, 1'rtaMeiit of the Ar 7.
islalitt Anemblij . Your Committeo ou Finance
beg tu lay befofo tho House the lopoit of J. O.
Carter, 0110 of tho exports employed by them to
oiainino tho books and accounts of the Fmanco
Depaitiuent. From said report it appears that
tho late Minister of Finance did carry nnd count
as cash, for u considerable length of time, largo
sums of publio money iu ordinary bank checks. A
list of said amounts is annexed to tho report. Your
Committeo beg to say that thoy cousidor this mat

llopoit was lead and ordered tu bo printed,
Au Act was read to provide for tho holding of nn
additional term for tho Third Judicial Court nt
Third reading of an Act to amend Sections 1! and
it of an Act approved iu 187tl, respecting tho Balo
and slauchtur of beef . Passed.
Second reading of the 10,000,000 Loan Dill. ,
Mr.Keau moved that this Hill now pass.
Mr. Kalua moved that it be indefinitely post
nouod. Ho thouuht that it was a move to run tho
country into debt, and thus destroy tho indepond
onco. Additional taxes would havo to be levied to
pay the intorost. Everything that it is proposed
to accomplish has already been provided for by
Mr. Keau spoke strongly in favor of the Hill.
Mr. Aholo said ho was of opinion that this Hill
ought to be referred to n Committeo. There were
other Loan Hills to come forward, nnd it this one
was indefinitely postponed, most probably tho
othors would sutler tho same fate. This would
necessitate a revision aud cutting down of the Ap
propriation Hill, which ho thought would be a very
good stroke of policy.
Mr. llishop said this Hill ought to bo disposed of
quickly uow. If referred to a Committee It would
come up agaiu and occupy the valuable time of the
Assembly. Tho difference betwoeu ocnsideriug a
loan of 10,000,000 and n loan of one or two.
It is a danger to this House aud to the country
to treat this Hill as though it had any possibility
of passing. This country always had Rood credit
abroad, aud ho hoped it would maintain that credit.
Credit was a sensitive thing and should be "well
oared for. It will be for tho credit of this country,
both at home and abroad, to throw this Dill oat
quickly. It wo should entertaiu this seriously it
will be known abroad, aud it wilt be to our dU-
crodlt. It will Injure our chances of borrowing a
moro rensonablo sum. Ho would not tako up tho
timo of tho Honso by going into tho details of tho
Hill, but trusted that it will bo indefinitely post
poned nt once.
