The Committee on Education reported favorably

boarding schools for boys, and two for girls be estab
lished on each of the principal Inlands ; and unfavor
ably on the petition from Hilo asking that parents
having three children and over be exempt from per
By Mr. Xaili, that fcuuO be inserted in the Appro
priation Bill for a Court House in the District of
Referred to Special Committee.
Mr. Kaine, gave notice of a bill amending Article
20 of the Constitution relating to Judges sitting in
ORDER OF TOE DAY.
The House proceeded to the consideration of the
Report of the Committee on Taxation, by Bill, iu
Committee of the Whole.
The bill is entitled an Act to amend the law in re
latiuiijto the tax on animals, to repeal Sections 481
and 4'J7 of the Civil Code. The bill provides the
following taxes : Horses, 50 cents each ; dogs,
mules and asses, 50 cents, and each dog to be tagged,
for which tag the Collector shall collect 10 cents.
Mr. Lyons moved that the tax on female dogs be
one dollar and a half. Mr. Hitchcock thought it
was unconstitutional ! Another member thought
that the male dogs were as much to blame as the fe
male in the way of increase or canine population.
Motion lost and bill passed.
The Committee rose and reported passage of the
above act with amendment, and recommended the
same to be engrossed. Ileport adopted.
An Act to regulate the assessment aud collection of
taxes on property was then read a second time, and
considered in Committee of the Whole.
Mr. nitchcock spoke in favor of Section one.
Mr. Smith (Minister of Finance), said he had no
objection to the bill, but thought if paesed it would
make no difference as it covered the same points as
the existing law.
Mr. Bishop said it was right that all property
should be taxed, but it was not wise to change the
system of assessment unnecessarily. The present
system was pretty well understood, and all a person
was worth was properly returned under the present
system, which is as simple as any to.be had, though
probably some property escaped taxation. If the Act
now before the House was passed, it would create a
great deal of confusion between debtors aud creditors.
If a man possessed $10,000 worth of goods which
he owed for, he was virtually worth nothing. But
he piys the tax on the S' 10,000, and has to go to his
creditors to collect their proportion of the taxes on
their property. The present system was well enough.
Should the present Act pass it might increase the
value of property in the District, and the fees of the
Tax Collector, but he eould not see much benefit to
the country at large.
Mr. Komoikeehuehu opposed the law, and favored
the passage of the bill.
Mr. Kunpuu favored the passage of the bill.
Mr. l'ilipo opposed the bill.
A motion to reject the bill was carried.
Wednesday, June 1st.
Mr. Lyons moved a reconsideration of the vote
taken on the bill in relation to taxation on animals.
Mr. Lyons moved to amend Section 10 by insert
ing December in place of September, in relation
to the time when dogs shall be tagged ; also to
amend Section 6 by having the dogs numbered, and
the number placed opposite the tax payer's name.
Amendments carried and bill ordered to be engrossed.
From Koloa, praying that the Minister of the
Interior be empowered to issue contracts between
masters and servants, and the seal of the Department
be placed on each contract, and that agents of the
Department be appointed on every island, and that

time after the expiration of the contract. That the

From Waimea, asking for S2.000 for a road from
Waimea to Kikiaula. Referred.
From Waimea, praying that widows be entitled to
one half in the property as dowry. Referred to the
rrom Waimea, that all foreigners who have made
their fortunes in these islands, and married native
wives, be prohibited from leaving their wives and
children, unless half of their estate is left with them.
Referred to the Judiciary Committee.
Hie Judiciary Committee reported on tha bill in re
lation to liens upon domestic vessels, and recommend
ed to lay the same on the table ; and were of the
opinion that the petitions to prohibit the importation
and sale of opium, and the bill fixing the time for
claims to estates, be considered by the House.
Ihe Committee on Government Lands and Internal
Improvements reported adversely to petitions from
Lanai praying for reservoirs ; from Tuna, complain
ing of oppression, aud that the ad appropriation
was not properly carried out ; and favorably on
petitions that Kailua be made a port of entry ; and
that ocean fishing grounds be thrown open.
Air. Hitchcock, chairman of t lie committee to in
vestigate the making of an Act to mitigate the evils
arising from prostitution, reported unfavorably of the
working of the present law, and urged that Chapter
37, Section 2, of the Penal Code was not projierly en-
forcci, and tuc committee brought in a bill to repeal
an Act entitled an Act to mitigate the evils arising
from prostitution, approved Aug. 24, 1860. Report
ordered to be printed, and to take its place with the
bill in the order of the day.

ORDER OF THE DAT.

to 1425 inclusive of the Civil Code, on its second
reading, Mr. Boyd in the Chair.
Section 1st was then read.

Mr. Halemanu read for the first time an Act to

Mr. Rice gave notice of a bill to provide for a hos

Mr. Hitchcock introduced a resolution that all
Bills and Acts be presented on or before the 18th day
of Jane, and none be introduced after that date un
less by permission of the House. Adopted.
The Unfinished Business being the resolution of Mr.
Kaiue, requesting the Minister of Finance to explain
how the permanent settlement on M. Kekuanaoa was
expended, was then considered by the House.
Mr. Hutchinson (Minister of the Interior) stated
that yesterday the Minister of Foreign Relations
said that the balance of the settlement on M. Keku
anaoa was expended in his burial. But it did not
seem to satisfy the member from Molokai.
Mr. Kaiue said that 8,000 had been appropriate!
as a permanent settlement ou M. Ktkuauaoa for the
year ending in 1870, and as he died in Nov. 1SC8, he
did not think the balance expended for his burial
was accordiug to law, as the appropriation was for
M Kekuauaoa, during the natural period of his life,
and he could not see why the Minister of Finance
should expend the balance, when the recipient had
died 10 months before the expiration of the time
the settlement was made for. If one of the Ministers
should die he did not think the balance could be
drawn out to bury hint-. He was opposed to the man
ner in which the item was expended, not the cause, as
he would willingly vote any amount that may have
been required for the burial of M. Kekuanaoa.
Mr. Hutchison (Minister of the Interior) said that
the King's Ministers were perfectly willing to meet
the question, and oiler any explanation that the
members wanted ; but he did nut believe the resolu
tion came from the member who introduced it.
Mr. Lyons called the minister to order, and said he
had no light to go back of the member who intro
duced a resolution or bill, as it was his right to bring
forward anything he liked without being questioned.
Mr. Hutchison continued, and stated he did not
believe the resolution came from the House but out
side of it, from parties who were continually trying
to get His Majesty's Ministers into difficulty. The
Appropriation Bill says that 8,000 is to be paid to
M. Kekuanaoa, and it was paid over to him, as it
was his property due him, by the Act making a per
manent settlement on M. Kekuanaoa of '4,000 per
annum. At the time of M. Kekuanaoa's death the
Legislature was not iu session, and the ministry
could not come forward and ask them fur an appro-'
priation to defray his funeral expenses which were
$4,000 more than thebalauce due him by the Appro
priation Bill and they did not propose to ask for the
balance now but felt quite confident if they asked for
the 4,000 they would get it immediately and cheer
fully, as M. Kekuanaoa was President of this
Mr. Kalakaua was not in favor of the mnnncr in
which the Minister expressed himself in this matter,
nor the manner in which the expenditure was noted
in the Appropriation Bill He thought that the bill
j ought to have specified how the appropriation was
expended, and not say it was pant to Mr. Kekuanaoa,
or all drawn, he thought the Miuister of Finance
had better bring a bill of indemnity.
Mr. Lyons moved to table the resolution, until a
joint resolution is presented fxom the Ministry which
will cover the grounds. He was m tavor 01 tne
manner in which the balance was expended, but
not of the way in which it was recorded.
Mr. Kuapuu moved to impeach the Minister of
Finance, as he had violated Article 42 of the Con
stitution. Mr. Smith (Minister, of Finance) said that in
making up the report he thought that if he noted
the expenditure of the amount it was deemed suffi
cient, and if any member wanted to know how it
was expended, he could have told them for M.
Kekuanaoa's funeral expenses. If a bill of iudemuity
was brought iu, the Legislature would appropriate
for the whole expeuse of the funeral, and a large
portion of which came upon His Majesty aud the
estate. He hoped this explanation would be suffi
cient, and no more be said on the matter.
Mr. Kepoikai favored the resolution.
Mr. l'ilipo asked the Minister of the Interior if he
thought the member from Molokai was a child or
any one else iu the Assembly. For his part he
believed the resolution was direct from the introducer.
He said the trouble was the explanation was not
plain as to the expenditure of this balance. He
wanted to know if the Minister kept his oath when
he violated his oath, by not keeping even the Act
making a settlement on M. Kekuanaoa. In the
report of the Minister of Finance there ws a full
report of all expenditures, but noue in regard to the
funeral expenses of Mr. Kekuanaoa. He did not
approve the manner of the expenditure, as it
established a bad precedent, and would favor the
motion of Mr. Lyons.
Mr. Kalakaua moved to amend the motion of Mr.
Lyons by requesting the Minister to bring iu a bill
Mr. Hutchison said he hoped the amendment would
not pass, as it was only giving away S'4,000 that
was not asked for. He thought the member from
Molokai ought to be satisfied with the explanation,
but he was not, and he thought it meant a vote of
censure on the Minister, for doing what he had a
perfect right to do.
Mr. Kahaulelio favored the resolution, but as yet
was not satisfied with the explanation ; he thought
that light was just beginning to be thrown on the
matter. He was ready to give what was expended
for the funeral expenses of M. Kekuanaoa, but did
not approve of the expenditure as reported by the
Minister of Finance. If it had been properly re
ported to the Assembly, no notice would have been
taken of the item.
The amendment of Mr. Kalakaua was put and
carried, and the motion of Mr. Lyons was adopted as
The bill relating to the taxation of animals was
read throughout for a third time.
Mr. Smith (Minister of Finance) moved to amend
the tax on horses to 75 cents, as the revenue was de
creased to a very considerable amount, which would
go a great way towards roads, bridges, and to assist
in the demands of the Sanitary Committee. He con
sidered a horse a luxury and not a necessity.
The amendment of the Minister of Finance was
put and lost by vote of 24 noes, 10 ayes.

Minister of Foreign A flairs led us round the world,
and introduced us to the legal authorities, and told
us of their incapacity to judge of our labor system,
and the havoj we are going to cause by repealing
our Masters and Servants' Law. lie, however, did
not agree with him, and believed the repeal of the
present law would be a benefit to all.
Mr. Kalakaua stated that he was not in favor of
the bill, but he would like to see the evil workings of
this law discontinued.
Mr. Wahine was strongly in favor of tho bill, as
he knows of planters who do great injustice to their
laborers. He spoke from personal observations, and
lias been in plantation employ himself. There are a
great many men and women now working in Hilo
who were shipped in Honolulu to work in Hilo,
whose contracts have expired long ago, and who
want to come home, but their employers tell them
they can't go, as their contracts have not expired,
and from some of these laborers he presented a peti
tion to change this law. The petitioners were willing
to work, and wanted to be shipped by Government
Officers the same as seamen are shipped. Some of
the natives, who could not read, were told their con
tracts weisjfbr" six months, when in reality they were
for a year and more. He did not mean to say that
all did this, but some of them. He was in favor of

San Francisco, May 10th, 1870.
The tirand Hotel.
This fine edifice, on Market street, fronting Mont
gomery, is now ready for the accommodation of
guests, although not yet entirely finishcJ. The most
eligible rooms have been permanently engaged by
regular boarders, the Grand succeeding the Lick as
the principal family hotel of the city, partly because
Mr. Johnson, late of the Lick, is now principal pro
prietor and Mr. AV. P. Ridgeway, superintendent, of
the Grand. The rooms in the new house are not
large nor particularly well arranged ; but from the
entire freedom of this building from connection with
others, the ventilation is excellent. The dining hall
is a moderately attractive room as a business ven
ture it seems plausible that a room equalling to if
not excelling the famou3 Lick House dining-room,
(which, report says, is to be further beautified by a
fountain, and Canary birds suspended iu cages,)
would have been a judicious investment. The car
riages imported for the use of guests are models of
elegance. The entire cost of the hotel is 450,000.
The Bulletin has the following about this new hotel :
A more favorable site fur a hotel could not have
been selected within the corporate limits. It is cen
tral, convenient to all the steamer aud ferry land
ings. The cars of three street railroad companies
pass its doors ; it has a frontage on three of the
principal streets ; the Market street side, in par
ticular, has a splendid exposure, u space equivalent
in size to a respectble park, formed by the inter
section of Montgomery, Post, Market and Second
streets, and it is bounded on each side by a main
street ; the corner of Jessie and Second being the
or.lv rart of the entire block which it does not
j occupy. The building is so happily located that the
suu shines on every part of it at some hour of tho
; day, an advantage which cannot be too highly prized
J in a climate like ours, where shade is scarcely ever
i desirablo and the warming, drying rays of the sun
j are always welcome. The proprietors of the hotel,
i not satisfied with the advantage in this respect which
; the situation of the house a Horded, determined to
j increase it by an arrangement of spacious bay win
dows on three sides, in every story, and of which
there are about 40. These serve to admit still more
1 sun-light into the rooms than could be obtained by
an arrangement 01 windows set dock aeep iu mc
From the lofty cupola at the Montgomery and
Market street angle of the house, a magnificent view
may be had of the harbor from Vallejo street wharf
j to Riucon Point: of Goat Island, Ilmoon foint.
Mission Bay, Hunter's Point and the shoot of blue
: waves beyond ; the Mission Dolores, Missiou and
; San Bruno mountains, Hayes Valley and Lone
! Mountain. A similar fine view is afforded the occu
pants of most of the rooms in the upper story, and
j caunot be obtained at any otner notei in me cuy.
j This advantage will be highly prized by strangers
1 coining to San Francisco from the Fast and from the
j interior of the State. It is seldom that hotels are
built in localities which are not circumscribed by
lofty, dingy, dull and forbidding brick walls, but
the guests of the " Grand " are not shut up in such

Speaking of hotels, elevators are being introduced
into the Occidental and Cosmopolitan buildings, by
which guests may be whirled to upper flights. The
former hotel, now enlarged and occupying the entire
j block fronting on Montgomery street, between Bush
! and Sutter, will probably have the larger tsharc of
j the transient trade, finding principal opposition in
I the Lick, to be devoted, nnder Mr. John A. Lawlor's
experienced management, to the traveling public,
while the Grand and CtTsmoplitan will bcspccially
The Dlertantile Library Gamble.
A serious cause for anxiety among all interested
in the Mercantile Library, has been the heavy debt
incurred by the erection of the present handsome
building devoted to its uses. The trustees, blamed
for their lavish disbursements, now propose a lottery ,
j or eeries of them, by which the debt may be paid-
A concert is to take place on the 1st of September,
and gifts are to be distributed among the people,
prizes to the amount of 8500,000 being offered.
Two hundred thousand tickets at five dollars are to
be sold, either entire, or in fifths at one dollar, eac h
ticket being eligible to one of the 025 prizes, which
range in value from 8100,000 to $100. The reliable
names attached to the enterprise justify the pre
sumption that the offers are made in good faith, a
special enactment by the Legislature permits this
scheme, otherwise in direct conflict with the laws of
. the State.
The Lecture Room.
Our people have been much gratified by oppor
tunities to hear Mr. Henry Vincent, the famous
English lecturer, whose earnest demonstrative style
seemed more American than English ; and whose
eloquence was truly remarkable. He lectured u nder

The (.rent Yacht Knee.
London, May 11. The race between the ikifjho
and the Cumbria terminated this morning. Many
yachts were towed early yesterday morning to a
point sixty miles southeust of Cowes roads, the
wind blowing Irom the east. The race was up the
Channel. The American yacht DaunlleHH and
English yachts Pleiad and others aecompuuied the
contestants. The scene at the start was exciting.
The Cumbria won the toss for position, thus having
the advantage from the start. The N;;o carried
thirty-two hands, all regular fore and alt sails,
maintop mast staysails and flying jib. while tho
Cambria only set oue jib, foresail aud other racing
sails, and carried twenty-six hands.
The start was made at 8:28 A. M. The HappliO
took the lead, and by the time she was off Beachey
Head, or Glty miles from' the start, she was ten
miles to the windward. The Cambria gave tip the
race, and without rounding the Empire's steamer,
returned to Cowes at four this morning accompanied
by the Dawdles.
The ,Saiho which nt the time was out of !ght of
the Cambria, returned to Cowes two hours later.

London, May 15. Tho second of three races be
tween the tS'iiJiO and Cambria, was won yesterday
by the former owing to the virtual backout by the
Cumbria. The English account says the Cambria,
with her new bowsprit lengthened two nn! a half
feet to accommodate her larger working jib, pro
ceeded outside shortly after four o'clock yesterday
morning in tow of the 'el'm. The vi;.yio had
already arrived in tow of the Oein. Tho wind was
blowing offshore, west-southwest with considerable
sea, though less than wits anticipated. I he Cumbria
signalled to the umpires for a triangular course,
but they refused, felie then accepted the proposal
to sail sixty -wiles to windward, the course to bear
round the Cherbourg breakwater by the western
entrance. Ashbury won the toss and took Ihe
weather position, and every thing being ready, the
warning gun was fired at 7:20 a. m. Presently the
Cambria signalled, " this is not a dead beat to
windward." and the answer was returned, this Is
the best the umpires can do, being only half a polut
of the wind."
The Oimhrin then flung out signal "dead bent,
or no race." At 7:45, the dnnnez T being north
west eight mites, tho American yacht swept by
tinder full head. The starling gun fired, but the
Cumbria remained motionless. The &ijijho stood
to windward with a steamer following and signall
