As Alaska Newspaper. We have seen a copy of
the .Uadca. Ihratl of .March lCth. It consists of
eight pages, the sire of the FrUnd, and presenta
a unique appearance, combining as it does Rus-
sian and American type and language iu par-
allel columns. It has, however, nothing distinctly
Abakan, and aa fir as the ouestion of l.ciilitv
is concerned, might be published in .N'ew York as well
as San Francisco. It is, to be sure, nearer Alaska
than if on the other side of the continent, but it is not

price of freight do uot exceed the limits stated.
lint besides the advance of passage from $50 to
' $75 will not be a small item of loss to the country;
j for whilst the steamer may receive as much money
. at less expenses, there will be less trave.ing and
less expenditure of money by travelers in the
country. Besides this, we now have, I should
judge, (but may be wrong.) arrivals of sailing
vessels with freight and seeking return freight, as
often as once in 10 days, which, with the steamer's
arrival once in 3C days, gives us three arrivals in
3C days, or one upon an average ia each 12 days
If the subsidy passes and a second steamer is put
pon the route, the two will bring do ten all the
freight and our mails will be reduced to one in
each 21 days, instead of receiving them ouce in
each 12 days, as now. Our freight nnd mails must
wait there, vn an average, nine days longtr Viun
tunc. From here to the Coast it will not be quite
so bad. as luml.er vessels will often want return
cargo to San Francisco, but upon the whole it
appears to me it will be a great loss (to say noth

of storage on both ends of the route by increased

I know on this point that the testimony before
the Committee was conflicting, but 1 am well as
sured that some of those residing here, who have
been in the habit of shipping by sailing vessels.
This corresponds with what I have heard about the
West Indian fresh fruit trade, to wit. that steamers
were not found adapted to it. and that it w as al
most wholly carried on the schooners.
It is claimed that these losses w ill be more than
balanced by the increased business iu all depart
ments of labor.'
I wish I could so see it, but I cannot. The av
erMge passage of sailing vessels Jrom San Fran
cNco is 15 davs of the steamer 12 whilst our
r,,,,,.!.., mails and remittances must often w ait eight
or nine days lunger at San Francisco than by tho
present facilities, counterbalancing a large part of
the interest said to be gained by the briefer pas
sage of the steamer to Sun Francisco. Aguiu,
there is a liability of detention of produce Ar-re for
several days more than at present, thus adding
loss of time and expense of storage, after, at each
end of the route, besides Ihe additional direct
charges upon freight, and postage beyond that to
which we are now subjected. The China line will
also be less likely to tourh here il this arrangement
is made, for it would be chiefly deprived of the pas
sengers whirh It might otherwise bring to Hono
lulu. The s.u-sidy itself spread over lilty yeats,
amounting to about an average of $.1.rt0 per year,
would not be much felt, hut having weighed the
subject as impartially as I could do in view of the
foregoing probable results, I cannot go for it,

MISSION OF 18118.
TwKNTv-si.coxn Day, Mvy 13th.
The Assembly met at the usual hour, President
Kekuanaoa in the Chair.
Hon. J. I'l"- presented a petition from llilo, asking
that certain fishing grouuds at Waiakca, llilo, be
pen to nil. Tabled.
lion. C. J. Lyons presented a petition from the
soldiers, praying that their pay be incrcas-ed to 10
a month, and that the Legislature fix their pay in
stead of the officers of the army.
On motion of Mr. Hitchcock, this and all otlicr
petitions from tho sauio source were referred to a
Special Committee, consisting of Messrs. Hitchcock,
1'ilipo, Keliipio, Koakanu and Gov. Dominla.
Hon. J. W. Keawehui.ahala, Chairman of the Com
mittee to whom was referred the bill to reduce the
horse tax, rcorted that in their opinion the act could
be very properly amended, and in view thereof they
ticked lerii.ission of the House to introduce a new bill,
to be considered in tho House to-morrow. Hill pre
sented and luade the order of the day for to-morrow.
Hon. V. T. Martin read for the first time a bill in
regard to the marriage of lepers that is, if a hus
band, being a leper, is torn from his lietter half, said
better half shall Le allowed to enter into a matrimonial
uUiai.ce with some other party iu consequeuce of the
withdrawal of her lawful spouse by reason of being
stricken with leprosy, aud vice versa. Hill passed
to its second rcitdiiii.
Hon. S. II. Phillips moved to the order of the day.

Hon. IL Jones read for the first time an Act to
authorize U.e 'Minister of the Interior to appoint A
Registrar of Conveyances for Lahaina. The bill
passed to its second reading in due course.
On motion the House took up tho Appropriation
Bill. , - . ..
' Hon' J. W. Keawebunahala moved a reoonsideraw
tion of the appropriation for the salary of the Second
Clerk of the supreme Court, and that it be raised to
r3,fJ00. After considerable debate, it was decided to
adhere to the amount voted, $2,400. ' ..-...
Item the salary of the .Minister of Foreign Affairs
$10,000. Motion to amend to $8,000 ; another
to 7,000. ,
Hon. C. J. Lyons said that this House was forced
to meet the parties whose salaries were to be acted
upon face to face this was not right.- But as it was,
he hoped every one would act independently, and not
let the presence of those whose salaries are to be con
sidered interfere with their minds, but to act as cour
teously as possible under the circumstances. In his
opinion this Government was an expensive one, and
tkr too expensive for its size. His opinion, as well aa
those of all sound thinking men in the community,
was that the salaries of the Ministers were by far
too high. The Secretary of State of the United Suites
only received $4,000 and his clerk $3,000, and does
the Minister of Foreign Affairs do as much as he?
Not by a great deal. So let us pay. these men ac
cording to their works. The speaker was in favor of
making a liberal allowance to the Chiefs of the peo
ple, as they should be distinguished from the lower
classes, and if the people wanted it he was iu favor
of such allowance. He spoke of the appropriations
for war, as compared with that for education, and
thought the former far too much and the latter too
little, and cited foreign nations in comparison with
this, and the more extensive expenditures of this
Government as compared with. them. He 'was in
favor of $8,000.
: Hon. G. Rhodes said that Mr. Lyons had cited the
pay of authorities in the United States, but had made
no mention of those officers near the thrones iu
Europe. In Great Britain, he said, the pay of Min
isters and high officials amounted to as high as
$50,000, and the acts of our Ministers were as im
portant to us us those cf the officers of Great Britain
were to that Kingdom, and this House should follow

the example of those Governments conducted in the
same manner. . The salary of the Ministers should be
$5,000, as it was the King's wish, and the House
should have some respect for these people who are
his companions. The House has acted liberally to
wards His Majesty," and ought to do so to His Minis
ters, as they are not only his companions, but re
sponsible for all acts of the Government, and they do
nil they can for the benefit of the Government It is
worth the salary to stand the abuse that is launched
upon them weekly from a portion ot the press of
Honolulu. These gentlemen, although the com
panions of His Majesty, were but the servants of the
country, and if the Government wants good servants
they must pay them well ; but in his opinion the
Ministers did not get enough. The salaries ought
not to be reduced, as it cost more to live here than
iu more populous countries. Should the present
Ministry resign, the Government could get others to
fill their places and at less pay, but what would be
come of the country I
Hon. Mr. Wilder was not in favor of any reduc
tion, as it cost the Minister of Foreign Relations all
of his salary to live here. He was in favor of a re
duction of many items under this department, but
the salary of the Miuister should be kept at -o,(K"i,
because if it was uot worth that it was not worth
nnvthinz. He wished the Assembly to distinctly un
derstand that be was not hopiltuteaai to the .Ministry,

Hon. K. H. Boyd was in favor of the salary as in
the budget, aa it was the express wish of tlie King
that his Ministers should le pant go.tssi a year, and
who was judge of the requirements of these Ministers
if it was not the King.
His Highness W. C. Lunalilo was very much op
posed to the remarks of the last speaker, and in his
pinmn there was not the sugniest reason wny me
resent Ministry bl.ould receive $o,0M) a year. The
louse at its last session pfiseod the sum of 53,000 at
the King's request, but not at his order, llesup-
sirted the motion to increase the I'nvy l'urse or

rnoush for all purposes and entertainments. Who

we should give the Minisfer a large sum of money
o sjH'iid extravagantly 7 Only I nuec Alfred, and
he amount appropriated lor the King was adequate
for all such demands. He was strongly in favor of
reducing the salaries of the Minister to -4,HX.l a year.
His Highness M. Kekuanaoa asked the Nobles and
Representatives who was ready to accept the position
of Minister under the Crown ?" He did not see any
of either party stand up and say aye. He was iu
ivor of voting $lV""'.
lion. P. Nahaolclua was in favor of the item as in
Hon. P. F Koakanu nrose to answer the question

still further his reason for reducing the salaries of
the Ministers, and stated that lie had no animosity

ered his duty, and aiding the wish ot Ins constituent s.
He cautioned the Nobles from being abusive, as all
they received was from the people, mid if the people
saw that they were p'tting too fat by their allowance
they would txion cut them down.
