years and never heard any complaint, and as for

and Thompson) they did not have any such exre
rience, and all their knowledge of the labor ques
tion was what they laid heard from others and
not from personal experience. He thought the
present contract system, backed by the law, was
the only safe-guard to the employer in case of a
refusal of the employee to perform his part of the
agreement, which was often the case in thiscoun
try. In regard to im

wn.mll Jro. on those who were r.iM-uls and '
inclined to do wrong, against wliom masters
ought to be protected by the existing law. He
alluded to several instances of the manner in
which laborers acted at times. He thought
tliat a country only fifty years old, could
not take the wing of an eagle and fly to the
State of enlightenment of countries of over two
hundred years old. Sucli a thing cannot be done
here, and the Aescmbly ou

in our r-rcsent state of civilization we on-lit to ;

low down as to not mind a written contract, the '
law must force him to perform his agreement, and
if ho refuses to do so, imprison him. This does j
not cheek his liberty, but cheeks his license. He ;
thouglit it strange that the members from Kohala ;

but tie was doing what he thought was right and !
just by his people.
Mr. Phillips (Attorney General) His remarks
will be found on the inside of the paper.
Mr. Bishop fully believed that this question
was by far more important and far reaching than
any before the House. He could not speak
i nuthoritativly on the constitutionality of the
I oi the statute, tic ociievcu to re necessary, just,
anu right, ana nelieving as lie aid, it lie hau a
doubt as to the constitutionality, he would give
i the law the benefit of the doubt
I he law was
t pascu ueiore tne cont-titution 01 lonz, ana ine
! same parties who made the Constitution made the
law, and the Constitution of lbG4 is very eimilar.
This law was revised bv two Judges of the
Supreme Court, and considered by two Legisla
tures, and he believed those gentlemen understood
the Constitution and laws as well as any of us,
and were as anxious for the rights and liberties
of the people as any of us. It was made by
Hawaiians for llawaiians. We have nothing to
do with America, France, or any other country.
If there arc any amendments offered he would
vote ir them if they improve the law, but I.e
could not see that any amendments are necessary.
That mean and selfish men have taken advantage
of it, he had no doubt. If we were to abolish
laws that were taken advantage of by individuals,
we would soon be without any laws. The plant
ing interest has been attended to, and has become
an important feature in the Kingdom, upon
which we almost entirely dcicud. Look at the
exports ; take out sugar, and see how much would
be left. It pays for most all the foreign products
brought into this country and the customs at the
Cufctom House, where a large portion of our
revenue is derived. It pays for internal improve
ments, and we ought to protect such an important
interest, as we have no mines iu this country,
and our wealth we mutt draw from the soil.
Every country protects its important interests ;
we cannot protect our products by high duties,
but we can irotcct our riauters. In other
countries there are a diversity of employments
which men can go into, but here the sugar uitcies;
is aloiit all in which much of our own and the
capital of foreigners has been invested to the
advantage of all classes. He was of opinion that
the laborers on plantations were better oil' every
way, than an equal proportion who are not
employed on plantations, and as for natives not
knowing what they were about to labor at, that
was nonsense ; they fully understand contracts
and the work on plantations. Sometime they
make contracts, yet advances and thereby to
avoid them. Should not the employer be pro
tected? If he had not protection the employee
could snap his fingers at his employer, and leave
him when his time was most valuable. The
eople of this country were not obliged to con
tract with the planters. They are at liberty to
follow just such vocation as they think best. I
would rather sec a man woik lor himself, if it
were tetter lor him. Lawyers, bankers, mer
! chants, &e., may be very uselul in their way, but
i tiior-e who brought productive wealth from the
; soil were the main stay of any country. Coffee,
i rice, wool, e., answered to a certain extent ; but
sugar was the principal production and gave
j employment to a great number of our people. Iu
his opinion this was not the place to settle the
GeVdcr)o 'lSft,'io tfiobij 'wliose tluty i was to con
sider such questions, aud it was a pity that the j
j constitutionality of such a question should be
j brought before the House. We have been given
I the quotation that " Justice must be done though

.he manner m which this question has been
discussed, inside and out of the House, could not
have done all in their jower to kill it, with the
idea that the islands would soon go under some
other rule, should the Reciprocity Treaty fail.
He was in favor of indefinitely postponing the
bill, but would vote for any amendment that
would improve the law.
Mr. Lyons It is a matter of regret that, in a
question of so much importance, personal feeling
should have so much influence. It may be ex
pected, however, since so great personal interests
arc involved. I regret that epithets should be

States would nt take us as a gift. Uut never ia

with the officials of another country, as some
others have done who are now so loud-mouthed in

Xou say the law is made for scoundrels. Well
tnre was a taw in jjigiand once to punish thelt
by hanging, That was made for scoundrel
and the argument is as good in one case as in the
other. Too much law always makes scoundrels.
; The law does not take ujion itself to enforce
every virtue. A man buys a piece of land
i pays for it. If the deed is not recorded, the 8 ile
j 1 y'iaw is void whatever the right or wrong o'
i it. The law declines to make certain things valid.
( Now these contracts that, any way, are on tl e
border land of constitutionality or unconstitution
' ality (and I think the enforcement of them un
! constitutional) have especial favors granted to
them. The very contracts that are dubious in
! their nature are exalted a,bove all others. One
! man has money power the other man has
muscle, why cannot they arrange advantageous
term6 for both without the intervention of law
any more than in any other contracts?
Here we are like bats in our den unwilling to
let the light shine in. Upholding this coolie
traffic that no decent State dare engage in. (Read
the Chinese Immigration Act now before Con
gress.) There was a most interesting period in the his
tory of this country, when the chiefs gave their
lands freely to the jicople. The memory of that
act will go down with honor to posterity. Now
we have a chance to perform a deed just as noble
and just us important. I ask my fellow members
not to throw it away.
