The Peril. fTrn velera Hawaii.
Mr. Editor : I had an occasion to visit Hilo
lately, and started in quite a cheerful frame of mind,
but the frame got miserably dilapidated in the effort;
for if ever a charitable man, usually mild in thought
and speech and well mannered, might be tempted
frankly to revile a fellow being ; if ever a pious gen
tleman of an age past enthusiasm, and not given to
profanity, might l-e brought to associate another's
name with the author of all evil ; if ever a misan
thropic and unhappy tempered person might have
reason to congratulate his own sagacity in taking a
gloomy view of the general prospect, it must surely
be whilst struggling ttclly-deep through that un-iathomably-ahominablo
work of the Interior Depart
ment, facetiously termed the Hi to Road.
I have read Macaulay's description of the journey I
from London to York in the time of Queen Anne, and
thought it overdrawn. Not so ! The Hilo road would !
, , . i --- i i
bave stuck him. Carriages passed (somehow) over
those Lnglish wsys, but I would defy an Amburg
with his strongest caravan nnd a troop team of ele- j
phants to make any time at all over this interesting

evidence of our prosperity How many poor
plantation coolies lie patiently beneath the mud, earn- ,
ing their four dollars a month (without rice for the
present), waiting in "masterly inactivity" for a !
. i i . . , , i !..!
change of wind or the fabled shovel of tl.e Koad
Supervisor, I would be afraid to say. I don't know
precisely nuiii rany uc uie specinc gravity oi a i ie i
with the wind knocked out of him, as compared with
bottomless mud, but I do know that European human
ity, with all its boasted Anglo-Saxon buoyancy, finds
a great alacrity at sinking " in it. And once in,
Victor Hugo's devil-fish could scarcely hold its vic
tim more tenaciously than will this, same mud when
it gets a grip of you.
13 ut there are other horrors to le met with on this
unparalleled public work. Here we are, transmogri
fied so that our wives wouldn't recognize us, panting
and sorely distressed for dinner, and as we faintly
surmised, incapable of any intenser degree of disgust,
brought up with a round turn at the jumping ofl
place. Why don't the Iepartiueut at once candidly
paiut its dictum in large letters and set it up as a
gu-board at this unequivocal spot "All suicides to

the day, Mr. Koak:inu in the Choir.
Mr. Wilder I did not iutend to address tlie House
upon this bill, feeling that tuy motives miht be made
the 6ulject of ill-n:iturel ccmment. I have not I -ecu
inseunilile to such allusions ad have alrealy been
dropped, but I feel tlait they were not intended as
iei-aun:dities, but have ivsulted from the heat of de
late; and I am confident that no geiuleumu in this
House will impugn my motives in the presentation of
arguments that L believe are basel upon legitimate
and proper premises. As a member c f this .Assembly
t is my duty to tuts House ana my constituents to
place before it considerations that 1 deem important
I why this bill should not pass. In opposing the bili
! providing for the psiymeut of a subsidy by this Gov
ernment to a steam vessel to run between tins port
! rancusco for sixteen tnps, I wish it t

- i i
tion, which I earnestly beg the House m.t to lose
-g f. J niclt is not steam coinmuuication in
! adartrairt. but whether for sixteen extra trips, to
: erf.rmed iu two years, this nation should be
l n i . a ..
! called upou to pay so large a sum of money. I think
t . J . . I - I - I . T 1
nut, ior sA-vcrai reasins ; one ot which ia mm i oe
licve it will be for the interest of the Company to
make these trips, eveu if they receive no subsidy
from this Government, ami that they will be made
in the hut u ml course cf trade, and the subsidy is
therefore an unnecessary expenditure. The princi
ple of granting subsidies or other aids to any branches
of industry is one which the greatest and wealthiest
nations of the earth apply but sparingly, and only
when it is very appareut that wit'aout such aid such
branches of industry or lines of coinmuuication can
not be maintained ; and that their maintenance is
highly necessary to the public good. It docs par
take, to some extent, the character of a monopoly,
the idea of which is ever odious. It certainly places,
in this instance, this Company in such a position
that no opposition could hope to compete with it, and
thus give it a virtual monopoly. Look at the Cali
fornia Steam Navigation Compuny a monopoly of
seventeen years standing a monopoly that has con
trolled the great State of California a monopoly
that elects its own legislators, that pass any bill it
desires a monopoly that has ruined many a man
who was foolibh enough to oppose it. And who com
pose the California, Oregeon and Mexico Steam Nav
igation Company? Many of the same men who con
trol the Calforuia Steam Navigation Company, with
a man at their head whose energy, whose business
talent and capacity are known over the entire world;
a man who daily grapples with projects of a greater
iimguitude thau we ever can dream of; a man who
cau draw a balance from bis lauker sufficient to buy
us with all our plantations. And what does such a
matt or such a Company care for our prosjerity or
our rights ? They but look to making a monopoly
a monojM.ly of all the business of theSaudwich
Iblaiids no communication but by' the steamer no
business but with their house. The provision to re
strict the rate of freight to $G er ton or less does
not seem to me so valuable a provision:; it gives us no
advantage, fjr it allows the highest rate of freight
that has prevailed for some years. It is not ouly my
opinion, but a fact verified by the experience of
every sugar-growing country, that the advantages to
our staple products of carriage by steamer does not
pay for its employment. And if this is so, with coun
tries not so favorably situated as we are for commu
nication by sailing vessels, it will prove so doubly in
To exiect that sixteen extra tnps for two
years will alter the course of trade in a market like
tul of 'J111 Francisco and give any more regularity
to it trade, is an idea extremely absurd. The mer-
i -it. . -...
chant of Kin t rancisoo calculates to-day with as
mud, certaiuty ns to the extent of our productions,
an. I the etlect upou his market, as he could if there
w':l"e tw steamers. The fluctuations of trade then
arise from causes entirely independent of these
T. . ... ... " J ' . ,
Islands, and the difference of five or six days, more
or iw. j the placing of our products in that market
will not, except in very rare instances, make the
flhtest difference. And theu insLinccs arc just as
likely to occur without the extra steamer as with it.
The merchants of San Francisco commence their
busiuess year with a full knowledge of the stock in
muwi, ui mc amount to uc ruisco uurv suu aiuppeu
over, and they order from other countries the amount
iiecessai-y to keep up their stock. It is when outaido
)cculators scud cargoes which exceed sometimes the
whole annual product of our largest plautatious that
the market is aflecttd disastrously to us ; or when,
through some mistake in calculation of demand or
j supply, that a short market operates in our favor,
j Such mistakes are just as likely to occur with steam
! us without steam. In like manner, in our own mar
ket, some unexpected and consequently unprovided
for demaud arises for some one article, and it is tem
porarily enhanced in value. Such mistakes and
fluctuations are observed in all markets, even those
which are most highly favored by steam communica
tion. To argue that booause the Government has just re
alized in an unexccted way the sum of $10,000,
it shoull be the excuse for spending $f0,000 or
more, is not sound. Unexpected sources of revenue
are not more common thau unexpected necessities of
expenditure. It is enough to answer it by saying that
the Government have been culled upou to expend
nearly the same amount by the volcanic eruption,
which was also unexpected. The congratulation of
the Miuister upon the receipt of this 10,000 seems
badly misplaced, when we reflect upon the source of
the revenue, the opium license. Would ihat by the
loss of twice $? 10,000 all the evils resulting from its
use in this country could be prevented. It demoral
izes and is injurious to a large class upon whom we
are depeo lent for labor. It produces disease, uuhap
piness and death, and the large sum paid for the priv
ilege of its sale, only proves the alarming increase
of its use and devastating influences.
Among the arguments which have beeu ingeniously
presented iu favor of this subsidy, is one which iuu.it
strike navigators of vessels of war and commercial
men with peculiar force that is, that the addition of
Strips per annum to our commerce with San Fran
cisco is going to turn to this port the stray navigators
of the Pacific Ocean. c dwell with rapture on the
picture 8 trips added to the time table of the steam
line, aud Honolulu becomes the centre towards which
the prows of the world's commerce is directed. Now,
Mr. Chairman, it seems to me that the number of
stray vessels iu the Pacific Ocean, either national or
commercial, without a definite point of destination, is
very small In this age of the world stray vessels
are rarely found, and if they were not, I fear that
the revolution iu trade to lie accomplished by these 8
trips will not be so great as to attract the immediate
attention of all navigators throughout this ocean.
Perhaps the argument is sound, but I doubt very
much if the number of vessels that are attracted hith
er will be equal to those that will be entirely displaced
by the steam line. Seriously considered, sir, our geo
graphical position i9 wotiderfully favorable so favor
able that we are sought by steam vessels before we
think of subsidizing them ; and therefore it is the
height of folly for this nation to expend its nsources
in paying for what naturally seeks our shores.
Now, sir, let us consider how it is proposed to meet
the obligations which we assume, not only for our
selves.but with kind regard to our successors, those
who must meet the maturing bonds 23 years after the
service ce:ises to be performed for which they were
given In five years we shall have paid the sum of
&3-!..'iO0. At the end of five years more, SCO.-j00.
In five more, 81,0u0. In five more, SIAI.OOO.
And at the end of the term of 2o years we shall have
paid 117,500, without compound interest. And
this, sir, for a service that will end in the next two
years. We are virtually sayiug to this company, " If
you will only do what you probably intend to do in any
event, viz., run another steamer 16 trips more in the
next two years, we will in the course of 2o years pay
what will amount to over S 7,000 per trip, or, at
f.oo tons freight per trip, S12 per ton bonus." And
this, when our envoy. His Ex. C. C. Harris, at Wash
ington, as appears from an official dispatch now upon
the Secretary's table, to this Government, states that
he has no doubt that this company will receive an ad
ditional subsidy from the U. S. Government, and will
run two steamers per mouth.
Now, sir, 1 ak this house, has any interest in this
couutry asked for this subsidy? Ibis it been shown
that any interest, agricultural or commercial, is suf
fering for this aid, or is going to le so built up by it
that :?'117,"o0 should be wrung from the overtaxed
people of this land in the next 2o jears to psy for
this temporary accommodation I have not seen it
shown, and standing here for the people of Koolau
loa, 1 cannot consent to such a tax upon their indus
try. It is unless to plead here in behalf of this bill,
that it will be no burden upon this people Upon
whom else can it fill? Upou none else. It will be a
debt, and must be paid by taxation. How will the
S extra trips per annum add to tbe wcutu or the na
tive of Hawaii, of Maui, of Molokai and Kauni?
Will the laborer get an increase of pay? Will it en
hance the value of their products? No. And, sir,
if you will not allow it to be the result of sound rea
soning, it is certainly with an instinctive knowledge of
his owu interest, that the Hawaiian, from Hawaii to
Niihsu, v.ould vote agiiust placing this sum ot" money
at the disposal of this company. Therefore I cm not
allow the consideration of this bill to pass without
putting iu my protest I could not return to my con
stituents and justify myself if I were to let any consid
eration turn me aside from an honest representation
of what I know to be their feeling. -
These are but a fw of the many reasons why we
should not pass the bill. I vote against the bill.
Mr. Kalu was opposed to the steam line, as for a
long lapse of jears all our benefits have beeu de
rivedfnui siding vessels, and is it evidetit that we
are sure- to receive these same WneEts from this
steam line? Tt appears that the principal part
of our revenue is derived from sailing vessels, and
so far there has been no complaint agaiust them.
Mr. llifhop had some amendments to proteose to
the first sectiwu, by strikiug out the words staple
products of the Hawaiian Islands," so as to read
and ordinary iiicrvhandie from either port, and u
per cent, primage," and at the end of the section
mails to be brought to Honolulu free of charge to
the Hawaiian Government." This matter is one in
which the public has taken a deep interest, and
is the subject of much conversation. The petitions
for aud against the bill, and the names on either pe
tition, entitle them to respect aud consideration.
There is one point upon which all agree, and that is
the benefit of steam comrnuuication. The question is,
if we are likely to have it without subsidy, whether
it would be lest for us to give the subsidy asked for ?
We have one steamer now, but we have no regular
communication,. regularity is a matter of great
importance, and it ought to be so arranged as to be
known abroad. The effect of steamers will be to
run off the packets, whether the former arc subsid
ized or not. While it is admitted we are in want of
steamers, many of the strong arguments against sub
sidy are the same as against steam. - The steam line
cannot have the whole business unless they have two
steamers, and if two steamers are ruuning, the pack
ets must give way. I believe the act passed with the
amendments would be a wise measure, but the Min
istry should not enter into the contract uutil they
hear from the Reciprocity Treaty. If that passed,
they should not enter into any contracts whatever
with the Company. If the Treaty did not pass, then
they should do what was best for the Islands.
His Ilighness W. C. Luualilo was opposed to the
subsidy of $50,000, as the steam line was already
provided for by the United States Government, giv
ing us a Bt earner for ten years, and he did not be
lieve in throwing away this large sum of money fool
ishly. . He could not sec why it should be thrown
away before considering the wants of the country.
Charity, in his opinion, began at home, and the
money Uie Government no hod should be handled
carefully. He thought Mr. Hitchcock's and Lyons'
arguments very sound. His Highness spoke at some
length against the subsidy, but for want of space we
are obliged to condense his remarks.
Mr. Hitchcock moved to indefinitely postpone the
first section of the bill, together with the amendments.
Mr. Rhodes said the case now was narrowed down
to a simple issue both sides hail agreed to the ad
vantage of steam between this port and San Fran
cisco. The gentlemen who are opposed to ibis meas
ure agree that steam is desirable, and their only rear
is the monopoly that will come from this company,
and the amount this Government is to sink' in aid of
the line. Every investment is accompanied with
some uncertainty; so with the subsidy to this line;
but the benefits derived from steam communication
in all parts of the world are undeniable.
Mr. Knudsen was opposed to the bill, as it was un
fair, and was for the beuefit of a few and not for the
many. Steam was a benefit to some of the merchants
of Honolulu, but not to the whole people. The pe
titioners from Honolulu, together with the Ministry,
in favor of subsidy, were well off, and if they were
to be so much benefited by this steam line, let them
subscribe a few hundred dollars each and they can
have their steam, as much of it as they want, and
hot feel the outlay . In his mind there were a
great many points in the bill which made it obnox
ious, and all lovers of the nation should oppose it;
those who voted for it were blinded' from self-interest
or something that he could not fathom. Mr. Kuud
sen was very strongly opposed to the bill, and thought
it a simple bill that could be easily seen through by
any one without the assistance of Ministers and an
array of lawyers. ' i " '
Mr. de Varigny was opposed to the remarks made
by the last speaker, and thought that appeals to the
feelings of certain classes, and working upon their
feelings, were more damaging than convincing, and
he could not understand how this steam Hue would
benefit one class and not another, when it would
make this city the great centre of all the productions
from the outside districts, and tend to increase them
largely. In regard to the last speaker's allusions to
the aid of merchants in regard to subsidizing the
California steam line, he cited the ease of the steamer
Kilauea. when all took stock in her meiely for the
sake of shortening time between the Islands. . ,
Mr. Keawchuuahala called the attention of the As
sembly to that part of His Majesty's speech in regard
to the steam line between here and ban rrancisco,
and considered it the duty of the representatives to
aid the King in assisting the steam line . It had been
argued that the granting of this subsidy would be the
same as throwing money away. The speaker remind
ed the House of the old adage of " cast your bread
upon the waters,' &c, and the expenditure of $50,
000 by this Government in aid to the steam line,
ought to be looked upon in the same light, and argu
ed further in aid of the bill, by frequent allusion to
the report of the Minister of Finance, and the capa
bility of this uov't to assist in tne new steam project.
Mr. A. F. Judd said he was surprised to hear the
member from Waialua read His Majesty's views from
the Royal Message, as if those who opposed the giv
ine of this S50.000 of the people's mouev should be
reminded of this, and a want of loyalty attributed to
them. I represcut the people of S. Kona, and I
should be false to my obligations to the King, the no
bles and the people of that district, as well as to the
entire population of the group, if I did not vote ac
cording to my conscience, and keep this money in the
country, where it is needed. The resolutions, for ap
propriations for Internal Improvements lying on the
Secretary's desk, are the voices of the people, and we
should regard them.
Mr. Phillips at this stage of the debate I propose
to confine myself to the subject before the Commit
tee. It seems to me the duty of his Majesty's gov
ernment to bring in an Act to encourage ocean
Ftei'in navigation. To the first section quite a num
ber of amendments have been offered. He doubted
not that when the time came -the House would give
them their consideration. In regard to the motion
of Mr. Hitchcock, it was to overthrow the w hole bill
and thus banish all aid to the steam line. When
the question was put he should emphatically say no,
and be hoped the rest of the Assembly would say
no. The motion as much as refuses to aid steam ia
any wav7 but the House will probably not think so,
as the tail 1 authorizes the contract to be entered by
and with the cousent of His Majesty in Privy Coun
cil, approved ; that the bill was not by any means
the contract. The bill was really this, that whereas
this Assembly would not again meet for two years,
power is given to enter into a contract with a steam
navigation company, with the consent of the King
and bis Privy council, at the head of which was the
venerable Father of the King, who has taken upon
himself to address the Assembly iu a manner in i
keeping with enterprise, together with some of the
judicious merchants of this city, and many of the.
chiels. aud it seemed to turn tnai ii iuis Assemoiy
adjourned for two long years without leaving any
provision of this kind, they we e not doing their
duty by their constituents. As for the ministers, if
this golden opportunity slips by it will be no fault
of theirs; they have done all in their power, and
in a cautious way ; and if the power is given tbe
ministers, it will "be their duty to see that the con
tract is drawn up with much care ; and when refer
red to the Privy Council, they will in everyway be
as cautious. If we vote for the motion of Mr. Hitch
cock, we throw overboard the whole matter, and
throw in our vote agaitist the advancement of civ
ilization, which has not been the policy of these isl
ands so far. I want this Legislature, as far as Uiey
can. to make this place the great Post Office of the
Pacific. That once certain, the independence and
stability of the nation is cei taiu. In this age of im
provement it has got to be that every country must
assist its neighbor in the onward march of civiliza
tion. I do not stop to think whether this company
is making this amount of money or that amount of
money, but I do pretend to say that all these things
together with the merits of this company, will be
well considered by the Privy Council. This act al
lows the contract to b made with any individual,
or corporation, and niav be made with some Eng
lish company after all. if the CO. M. S.S. Co. can
not come up to the terms of our contract, to be
sanc'.ioned by the Privy Council. The first question
to be put is the indefinite posponement of this bill.
1 hope you will say no, and then adopt Uie amend
ments as tlivy come.

He said the misrepresentation of speeches hVi been

they were responsible to the people for tiieir actions.

could not be bought, and hoped none of the Assembly
could, and begged the members to defeat the bill,

number of lands, making it optional with her to ac
cept them or claim her right of dower, and she took
the lands in preference ; afterwards, being dissatis.
fied, she complained to His late Majesty Kameha
