j Minister Vari-ny -aid that he had had the lienor
! of a.hlressin ' the Hons. upon the bill, ami was
j apswcied by the Ilaii. members Irom Honolulu.
Th" point that I wi-Ii irnv to advance is the inde
finite postponement of th" bill. Jt was stated on
I the oilier si'l" thai it had been arorued that the
1 piissa.'e of such a hill w ould make a private bank
I of tie? ooices of ihe Ministers of this "-overiiineiit.
I At '.resent there was i.ii.i'U'J on hand. Le did
noi believe the p-.tpt-r would depieciate, ami did
not see how it could, because the merchants Would
lint sell jJlOeo worth of these notes for m)0. when
all he would have to do would be to fro up to tlie
treasury and have them cashed ami receive for
tht. in tiie full amount stan d oil the fat e of tin?
mutt i;i iT'ihl. In order to atfect the value of paper
money, its circulation must exceed tiie revenue of

Minister Harris said he had no intention of
addres-ino; the House upon this bill to-day but as
he had been advised to ibv so. and would prove
that not a single reason advanced a r dnst the lipd
is sound. He would prove that it ought to be re

A'lrt i r I it.m iliet article l.e found that cer
tain persons were antageiiisiic to ihe bill, and
that those who wrote the attic!.' never saw the
bill, and now it becomes a part of the argument as
it was a part of the means ia influence them. In
! the first pan. is a reference to myself and the Hon.
member fn in Waialua. This is now passed, and
I is the fi; st argument, and could this argument
! infect the passage of the bill. He never saw the
! article published in the i.i.i !!. and never wrote
' it. nor any of his fi lends, nor did he see the article
! (ill a row days idler the publication of the paper.
! but it was only animosity on the part of him who
; saitl he did. at d that the peiso'i who wrote the
article in the ,tn:i h.td as good judgment as the
b'ev diditor of the A'"o.o,i. He had mentioned
this to s.iow that personality is no argument, and
abuse is nothing at ail. The Minister then quoted
from the leader in the A'lci rtisi r. w here it is stated
that, he promised to stand by the Constitution of
lc"S-!, ami at: er wants changed his opinion. He
wa.ul.l say h. fore this Assembly that he stood ouv for the
Constitution umil it was iihroLNited ami the Kiiitf went out of
yonder tiot r, h.-avin- hansel! and col!e.ii:ues in the rear. He
said this for the Itetietit of liis Hawaiian lrieiitlg who have stood
hy him all the way ihrouvh, and now he hoped the inenihers of
this Asseml.ly wid see who is rijilit the -' Vili.aiik Lavvvku,"
or the Vii.laok I'mi-ST. Some people sneer nt this country he
cause it is a suii.ll place, and attempt lo frighten you out of
this hiil, lccause a villain ami a scoundrel chose to sneer at
I tins Vi 'Vernaicui witii ins yacia. (Here .Messrs. lvaapa and
j Kamalo a:-!;",i the Minister what his remarks hint to do with
the hill.) Ti "se people say that if this hill paused, the credit
of the country would I e "tine. Ac, &c, and the same was said
w hen the roiisiitulio n was changed ; and in regard to this he
ratuid ask tiie A-si ml ly if the Islands are not of more import
ance now tlt!n they vcr were, w hieh poos t prove they are
false prophets. (Mr. Ukeke The remarks of the Minister of

was his paper money Unit he wanted to issue.) He wanted
to prove thai these H. verend financiers did not prophecy right
in ihis respect, and would like to consider whether they may

Would give him the paper lie would comment upon it. it whs
stran-e that he had changed his min 1 hetween the 12th of May
and l!n ls-h of June. (Here the Minister intlutTeit in slurs

the H ittcr'aig nature of his remarks made upon ou.- journal,
our reporter's modesty forhatie his reporting this portion of the
Minister's siweih.) Ihe Minister winhed to show that the arti
cle used hy the Princ- was not a sound argument in this House,
lie would say that a sadden issue of paper money upon the
money market would have the same effect as a sudden nurpl is
C'f sugar upon tlie seg.tr market, and there is no design in this
hill to Hood the tnamcl with a sudden supply of paper. It is
now said if we turn a sudden supply of paper upon this market
who gels hurt ? lie was at a loss to see how the purchaser was
to he a loser, ami therefore tin? argument was a fallacy, an I he
merely t-tatetl it litis way l- show what a ridiculous appearance
it makes in the sha e of an argument. (Here Mr. Heuck cor
rected him.) It has heen saitl. if we issue the hills, and interest
falls, it will drive capital out of the country. II: was willing to
tlrive any man out of tiie market w ho cannot compete wiih the
cheapness of his goods. He understood his friend to say that
th'-.-e was $50,000 of foreign capital in this market. He could
prove to the contrary, hut would not ut present. What he
meant was capital here to loan, ami said if men cannot lend
their money at the price he could get an equivalent dollar for,
he was peii'ectly willing they should send their capital out of
the canary. VA hat should lie care if a foreigner rakes off his
capital, if he won't lend him money f..r less than l'i percent,
when he could get all he required for 10 per cent. He would
pay that a dollar iu silver is not the test to value, hut that a
Imhel of heat is that is the life of man. (Here he made
s ime desultory remarks about greenbacks in America.) The
piece of paper, shown hy the Hon. M:-mler from Koolaupoko,
had purchased food, clothing ami everything else.
Mr. Heuck here corrected the Minister hy saying that gold
and silver were the medium of exchange, but that a paper dol
lar was very different in value from a gold or silver one.
Minister Harris said we were speakii.g of Government credit,
la.gland h is increastd tier debts by wars, and America tlie

Mr. Hart said that il the Queen received Ihe pro

of Kaiuehanieha III., he t'id not see why this As
sembly should appropriate any sums for her main
tenance, as he thought she was well supported by

from her own acts. He wsis in favor of tabling the
report of the Commit tee.
Mr. Kanaimi saitl that these lands were given to

had in his possession.
Mr. Kamalo said lhat these lands were given to;
her under a rov.il patent, he saw no reason why ihe
House should not appropriate a sum iu aid of her
support, and moved that the report of the Com
mittee be referred to a Select Committee, to inquire
into all the circumstances.
Mr. Kalakaua thought that the House would not
be well informed as regards the lands of Queen
Dowager Kalama. unless the books of the Interior

Mr. Kamalo said lhat he woultl like to know how Ihis $10,000
was to 1m? rxentled, and wanted to know why the uiu wu
reduced to ttiat amount.
Minister Hutchison thought that $10,000 was (niffii icnt, be
cause the pap r was gaining iu public favor, and that was all
that was required.
Mr. Kamalo said that the native newspaper wnn badly con
ducted and was losing favor wiih the natives. b sides very im

now moved as an itinen.lnient, he would like to make it $10,000,
as that sum would certainly be required.
Mr. Heuck said that Die item in the last Appropriation Hill
was $12,000 00, and it would he rememV-n-d that the members
of the last le gislature thought that it would lie sufficient to
build, but no extra outlay for the grounds, Mit was thought the
Government had a piece of land adapted for such an institu
tion, but it was not obtainable, and had to purchase a piece of
ground, ami it Cost $4,000, ami it just such a site as needed for
the erection cf such an institution. The building is ho built to
admit of enlargement, and that a separate house hail been
built for the noisy inmates, which of course took more from the
appropriation, but the sum already appropriated hud not been
usetl up, as a balance of $4,000 was yet on hand, and stated
that to complete the building, to build fences, furnish the Asy
lum, would cost about $12,000 O0, but as the balance of $4,000
from the last appropriation was not used, he was in favor of the
amendment of His Kxcelleticy tlie Minister of Finance.

question for us to consider, and that the duties of
the Registrar of Public Accounts, or the Clerk of
the Minister of Finance, do not exceed the duties
of the clerk of the Collector General, and thongbt
that if the clerk of the Minister of Foreign Rela
tions received $3,000. and this clerk S 1.000 it
wnuhl be proper ; besides this, the clerk of the
Mini-ter of Foreign Relations was a regular at
tendant at the Legislature. Minister Varigny said
his clerk brings documents here for him to sign,
and is. as a general thing, very busy. lie thought
that it was the duty of tlie House to aw ard salaries
to clerks according lo the duties they have to per
form. Formerly there used to lie two clerks at the
Custom House one received S2,a0() a year, and
his assistant $1,200, which made an amount of
$3,700 a year for the same work that this clerk
