Inter -Island Stnam.
The ghost of the old 6tcamer Kilauea, which
periodically floats before the Hawaiian people, ia
again io eight, this time conjured up by the re-
port of the ilinister of Finance, who devotes
three pages to it. As we (shall have frequent oc
casion to refer to what the Minister says, we
refer the reader to the report on the Hupple
ment of this paper.
The Legislature of 1808 passed a law authoriz
ing the Minister of the Interior to contract with
any individual or company who would engage to
provide inter-itland steamers of a certain ca
pacity and ppeed, and to ray the 6um of
$10,000 a year for weekly steam service to
Hawaii, and $5,000 a year for weekly steam ser
vice to Kauai, making in all $30,000 for two
years. This law clearly specified what the service
was to be, and the sum required to meet ita pro
visions Mas inserted in the Appropriation Bill,
i for this and no other object. An additional sum
! of $0,700 was also voted to make up a deficiency
i spent without authority during the previous year,
making a total of $30,700 for inter-island steam
j service, during 18G8-9, $30,000 to bo spent
: only under special instructions, and $0,700 with
out special instructions.
The report of the Minister of Finance states
that the above two sums have been withdrawn
j from the treasury and expended; but in what
way, or how used, is not stated. Iicferring
to it, the report says : " the Assembly placed
at the disposal of the Minister of Finance the
sum of $30,700, for the purposes of inter-island
j steam navigation, this sum Icing vnrestricted by
Now ve maintain that the Legislature did, in
the law referred to, clearly direct how this sum
of $30,000 should be spent ; that it declared
j that it was to be spent solely lor a certain object,
which was inter-island steam service durinjr. the
ienniai rcri protided for bj the bill
j Ministers come before the peoj.lc, and coollj aert
that the sum ww Eimjiij entrusted to the dis
cretion of Ilia JIajeetj's (.Jovernment," and od
tliis specious plea it Lob been withdrawn from the
National Treasury. What has been done with it,
we are not told. Certainly it hns not been epent
for the object for which it was voted. With as
good reason the $G0,000 voted for a palace might
Lave been taken to buy lands, on the plea that it
could be obtained whenever wanted. If 6uch
an administration of public affairs is to be con
tinued, why not diepense with the Legislature at
once, instead of keeping up this public farce of
appropriating moneys for a specific object, and
having them used for another ? If this is not ob
taining money under false pretenses, let the Min
isters define what is.
The report goes on to say, every effort was
made to induce individuals and companies to
undertake the enterprise, and to this end much
correspondence was had with parties in foreign
countries, which necessarily occupied much time."
Now we will venture to assert that proper efforts
have not been made to introduce foreign steamers,
and certainly no public advertisement has yet
been issued inviting foreign s team service. " Cor
respondence " has unquestionably been had with
the North Pacific Transportation Company,"
who, however, decline to put on vessels except
under the American flag, which excludes their
offers altogether, as the law allows no Eervice but
under our own flag.
But the public very well know that a firm in
New Zealand, the owners of several fine steamers,
and in every way competent, offered to enter into
contract to furnish all the steam required for the
subsidies ftipulated. They, however, were snub-
A V inlfi
bed vith a reply amounting to thi.-, that when
J ever they produced their veFFcIs, it would be
time to talk with thcin about eteani.
.Again, riot twelve months ago, a gentleman of
ample means, residing in Oregon, offered to put
on the fine eteamer George S. Wright, and comply
with the terms of the Hawaii service, for the
sum of one thousand dollars a month. The only
veins, .lull UIU IlOl UUIC lu l lan tjj y J
ing one thousand dollars. Yet this same ministry,
possessed of such tender consciences that they
couid not take the responsibility of securing a
line contract, show no scruples in withdrawing
from the public treasury a large sum in violation
of law, and without reporting what had been
done with it.
Is it to be wondered at that foreign capitalists,
who are not accustomed to go around the world
begging fo3 favors, should turn away in disguet
from Euch dealings? When, therefore, the
Finance report utters the assurance (though it
does not 6ay eo in us many words,) that no com
pany -or persons abroad arc w illing to supply us
with inter-island steam, it misrepresents the facts.
The 6ame is equally true, when it says, " no
person or combination of persons, residing within
the country, are willing to do it."
Now if common report is reliable, several
propositions have been made to the Govern
ment to take the Kilaueu and run her. Among
them ia one from a reliable firm, who have
offered to take the steamer, and run her,
at their own expense, during the term of five
years from the day she is ready for service, under
a subsidy of one thousand dollars a month. It
i9 said that they coupled their offer with the
proviso that at the end of that term, the boat
itself should revert to them ; but if at that period
it is wortli no more than it was when sold in
February, 1SG9, this will not be a point worth
lint rejecting the last proviso, the offer of this
firm, if the work is well performed, is all
that the public can desire, as it provides inter
island steam at a find cost to the public. The j
steamer is here, at best an old craft, liable to
need frequent repairs and when ready for sea
will have cost 35,000 to $40,000 lucky if
within the latter figure. If run by this firm,
the country will know exactly her future cost ; if
run at the public expense in the cheapest manner
possible, she will require over and above her
receipts from ten to twenty thousand dollars u
year for repairs, marine contingencies," &c.
It any one doubts this, let him refer to the
appropriation bill on the supplement, and see the
item of $30,700 already gobbled up, and the
item of $20,000 asked for " marine contingen
cies," making $50,700 for the vessel for the
current two years. Now if any party will
run the boat for the pame period for $24,000,
keep her in repair and assume all her expenses,
it is the most reasonable proposition yet made.
For the P. C. Advertiser.
The Ciibinrl in the Anxciiibly.
The anomalous character of the Legislature under
the present Constiiution can only be thoroughly ap
preciated hy a visit to the House while in session.
The Ministers desks arc all on the west side of the
Assembly room, and they sit in a row, the Attorney
General being sandwiched between the Ministers of
the Interior and Finance, while the Minister of
Foreign AQairs occupies a cushioned, leather-covered,
high-backed Chair next to the Jiloor. The Ministers
watch the proceedings very closely, and frciu their
constant writing when any member of the indepen
dent stripe is speaking, evidently take notes for
future reference, while if any undoubted partizan of
theirs makes a speech, they reward and encourage
him with gracious smiles and encouraging nods.
Lord Brougham, in some of his parliamentary
habits not, of course, in his pre-eminence as a
lawyer and a man of talent is brought to my
recollection when I see the Minister of Foreign
Allairs " bobbing around," first in the lobby, with
a member by the arm and his mouth close to the
member's ear ; then, dropping him, rushing to his
seat and throwing himself back in what I suppose
may be termed a dignified legislatorial "Lord of the
Manor" style. Presently, catching an idea, he
jumps up and raising his form to its full military
attitude, advances to one of the Nobles, and with a
condescending grin delivers the " idea," and re
turns, chuckliDg to the Ministers, to each of whom
he goes through the same pantomime, and each iu
his turn, responds with a grin and chuckle, where
upon the gratified and triumphant Minister returns
to his leather-covered, high-backed chair, and be
nignantly surveys the Assembly ; only for a minute
or two, however, when, getting another 'idea," he
starts up, and goes through the s:mie performance
again. To me, an entire stranger here, I confess
that the frequent repetition of the same farce seemed
tiresome, but had I been privileged to go behind the
scenes, I would probably have liked it better.
But from farce, there was something on Tuesday
hist which threatened to be a tragedy or si serio
comedy. The Divorce Ameudmeut Bill was under
discussion for the fourth or fifth time this session.
The Minister him of the cushioned, leather-covered
and high-backed chair took a very strong ground
against the bill, and the Attorney General took an
equally strong and high-toned ground in favor of it.
Pretty high-Hown language was indulged in on Loth
sides, and for a time, things looked decidedly squally.
The members the llepreseutatives I mean looked
on with wonder, or apathy, evidently thinking that
the Cabinet was not a unit, whatever else it might
be. I suppose your reporter will give you all the
particulars in full of this singular legislative fiasco,
and so I will say no more on that poiDt, except that
the Cabinet, like the Kilkenny cats, will keep up
We outsiders can afford to look on from a safe dis
tance. JVoli me tangere, is ray motto, and I sup
pose, from present appearances, it is that of the
Ministers. However, somewhat to my disgust, the
storm of words suddenly subsided, as suddenly as it
had arisen, and five minutes after the bill had been
ordered to lay over 1 pity the bill, the way it has
been pulled about I saw the Minister grinning a
joke right in the face of the still irate Attorney
General, and " bobbing around "

Ilnvraii Circuit Court.
IIilo, May ICth, 1870.
The Circuit Court at this place commenced its ses
sion on Tuesday, May 10th, the Hon. H. A. Wide
mann, presiding, assisted by Hon. F. S. Lyman,
local Circuit Judge.
There was not a criminal case on the calendar,
a very remarkable instance of the law-abiding and
moral habits of the people of the largest island in the
group. We venture to say that there is scarcely a
parallel in the civilized world, where, out of a popu
lation of 20,000 people there is no accusation for a
public court in six months time ; and yet the civili- ;
i tation of the Hawaiian people is not a half century old.
The following civil cases were disposed of:
II. Purdy r. The Waimea Grazing and Agricul
tural Co. This was a suit for trespass, but being
compromised, was withdrawn. W. C. Jones for
W. B. Porter vs. J. IL Coney. This was a suit
for assault and battery. The case was tried by a
jury who found a verdict in favor of the plaintiff of
SS5.25, damages and costs. W. C. Jones for plaintiff,
F. H. Harris for defendant.
Young Ah Ling r. R. V. Husbands. Assault and
battery, by whipping the plaintiff's wife with a cow
hide. Tried by a jury, which rendered & verdict in
favor of plaintiff for S100 damages and costs. W.
C. Jones for plaintiff, F. H. Harris defendant.
The plaintifl's attorney thought the damages in
both the above cases very small, and remarked that
dollars looked as big as cart wheels to a Hilo jury."
There were several other unimportant cases pre
sented. The weather here is cool, with fine showers, and
the prospect for the growing cane was never better.
Masonic. A special meeting of Hawaiian Lodge,
No. 21 , F. & A. M., will be held at their Lodge room,

REPORTS AXI) RESOI.VTIOXS.
Mr. JulJ reported adversely to the petition of the
salaries, in regard to increase of wages, and recom
mended indefinitely postponement. Report adapted.
Mr. Rice, of Committee on Commerce, reported
against the petition from Ililo, praying that Ilaw.ii
iaus be allowed to barter with foreign vessels ; also
on the petition asking to allow natives to trade in
foreign merchandise, and recommend to table the
same. Report accepted.
Mr. Kepoikai read for the first time a bill amend
ing Section 870 of the Civil Code, including Wailuku
with Lahaina, as the seat of Justice on the Island of
Maui. Bill passed to its second reading.
Mr. Rice gave notice of a bill to encourage steam
navigation between Oahu and Kauai.
Mr. Naili gave notice of a bill to amend Sections
4, 5, G, 7 and 8, Chapter 13 of Penal Code ; also a
bill amending Sections 488 and 4SD of Civil Code.
Mr. Martin read for the first time a bill to promote
the good breed of horses and cattle.
Mr. Hutchison moved its rejection.
Mr. Martin spoke in favor of the bill, and asked
the House to consider it well before rejecting it. On
motion, the bill passed to its second reading.
Mr. lvalue introduced a resolution that the Judi
ciary Committee enquire by what right the Kind's
Ministers have seats in the House ; also by what right
Mr. W. 1. Kamakau has a seat in the Assembly,
when he is a Circuit Judge.
Mr. Judd moved to indefinitely postpone the reso
lution. Mr. Kaiue in support of his resolution stated that
he did not think the Ministers ouirht to take iart in
any business of the Assembly, not immediately under
their several departments. In resard to Mr. XV V.
Kamakau, he could not sit in the Assembly, as it
was expressly stated in Article 20 of the Constitution,
that no Jud:e of a Court of record was entitled to a
seat iu the House.
Mr. Judd stated that the Ministers sat as noble3
ex-officio, and that Mr. Kamakau was not a Judge
of a Court of record, according to the opinion of His
Honor Chief Justice Allen.
Mr. Lyons stated that he thought the resolution
nnolir rn hp rfnrmilAroi1 na tJio miittr init;imol tltofoin
was not clearly understood by the native portion of
the Representatives, and called the attention of the
House to the imperfect translation of the Constitution.
Mr. Kaiue thought that the Assembly was higher
authority than the Courts, and wanted his resolution
considered by the House. Motion to indefinitely
postpone put to vote and carried.
Mr. Kaai introduced a resolution asking that the
sum of $1,000 be inserted in the Appropriation Bill
for cleaning the road from Nijoopoo to Pahoehoc,
South Kona. Referred.
Mr. Kuapuu introduced a resolution that the
Sergeant-nt-A mis be instructed to return lien tail's
Own, as it is not wanted by the Assembly. Billed
out of order.
Mr. Piiipo introduced a resolution that the sum of
$'2,000 be inserted in the Appropriation Bill for the
roads in the District of North Kona.
Air. Piiipo also gave notice of a bill amending
Section H'J'd of the Civil Code ; also a bill to amend

After some debate, Mr. Harris moved to take the
ayes and nayes on the motion to engross, and ad
dressed the Assembly earnestly and at length against
voting for the bill. He quoted the law of Massachu
setts, previous to 1SG7, as favoring the Divorce Law
now upon our statutes, also the law of the State of

An Act to prohibit the importation and sale of
opium, on its second reading, was the next order of
Section 1st was read, when the Minister of Finance
moved to indefinitely postpone, ns he thought that
opium would be smuggled, and used on the sly if
prohibited by law. He demanded the reasons for
bringing in the bill.
Air. Hitchcock gave several reasons for bringing
forward the bill, among them that the law ns at
present was a species of class legislation, that there
were petitions asking for the repeal of the law, by
both the Chinese and foreign population, nnd the
petition ought to be considered. His principal leason
for bringing in the bill was to close the door which
was now open to extinguish the Hawaiian race. He
knew it wnuld take largely from the reeeipts of the
Tretsury, but he cared not for that, as he did not
want the funds of the Government to come from the
life of the people, and that his constituents were
willing to make it up in any legitimate way.
Alessrs. Lyons nnd Rice als spoke in favor of the
bill, and cited the devastating influence of opium.
In regard to the Alinister of finance thinking that
opium would be smuggled, he wanted to know if the
officers were to sit around like wooden images and
let such things be done.
Air. Kumahoa was in favor of the bill, and did not
want opium introduced even as a medicine.
Air. Thompson was opposed to the bill, ne stated
his knowledge of the evil influences arising from the
use of opium, but he did not think it right to abridge
the personal liberty of men, nor to legislate as to
what a person should eat, drink, or smoke, and
opium was used as a drink and for smoking by the
Chinese portion of our population, to whom alone
the license authorized the sale.
Air. Judd moved to amend the section by making
the fine not less than "500 nor more than 81,000 in
place of 100 to 500, as in the bill.
Air. Lvons said that the bill prohibited the iinpor-
tell who were Chinese and who were not, as many of
our natives had Chinese blood in them.
Without further action on the bill, the Assembly

ing. He did not wish to choke oft any member of
till Assembly, ns he and his colleagues were willing

to Eit in the Assembly until it expired by limitation.
He went on to state to the Assembly, the folly of
postponing the consideration of the Appropriation
Bill when all were waiting and wanting appropria
tions for roads, bridges, &c, &c. The memtr of
Kohala said yesterday that he was going to keep back
the Appropriation Bill until he could see what action
would be taken on other bills before the House. This
was probably the dream of some so called reformers,
but they who wish to promote civil dissensiou, gen
erally suffer by it. The member of Kohala was
mistaken when he thought that keeping back the
Appropriation Bill was going to influence tho Ex
ecutive in relation to the Masters and Servants Law.
He asked the member from Kohala how he was going
to make His Alajesty sign any particular bill, by
keeping the Appropriation Bill back. He and his
colleagues were not dependent upon the Appropria
tion Bill, nnd it made no difference to them whether
they did not draw a cent for the next two years.
They wanted the appropriations to carry on tho
public wants, but if the Assembly wanted to stop it,
