Tke bill to auend Uie Act rfipeciiog tb llaw
aiiao Board of Health, was ordered toalLird read

Hoa. A. F. Judd. read Brat lime aa Act to admit
certain articles u?d in tb whaling business, frtw
of duty. Ordered printed.
Hon. Mr. Kipi nVred a resolutiort to the effect
that no new bill be received after the 3d day ot
July, without permission granted. Carried.
Hon. JWr. Kipi offtied a a retail m ion that the
IIoum have an evening session xn Monday. Wed
nesdays and Thursdaja, commencing at 7 o'clock.
His tlx. the Minister of .Foreign Helatloas faid
that any inau who ;tt hera'from 19 to 4 ecU day,
had done an honest day's work. There tad be n
tidie enough tpent in Ulkir:' of trifleslunches,
etc. which "would have sufficed to consider and
pass on important business. Tbe day BsioD8
would be quite time enough, if members would talk
less on matters of trifling conaequeuce. Tbe resolu
tion was adopted.
The bill to reduce certain costs in Courts, was
read a third ticae by title, and finally passed.
The bill to repeal Sec. 6 of an Act respecting the
Leprosy, was read a third time, by title. Motion
by lb? Hon. I). Kalakaua, to indefinitely postpone.
Lost, and the bill finally passed.
Tbe bill to amend Section 15 Chapter 16 of the
Penal Code, was read a t.ird time by title, (whip
ping) and finally passed. ' -
The bill to amend Section 8 Chapter 9 of the
Penal Code (whipping) was read a third time by
title, and passed fioallv.
Tbe bill to amend Section. 13C0 of tbe Civil Code,
parsed a third and final reading.
Tbe bill to amend tbe law relating to the Haw
aiian Board of Health, came up on a third reading.
On motion, tbe first Section was indefinitely post
poned, the other Sections were numbered to cor
respond, and tbe bill finally passed.
Tbe proposed amendment to the Constitution,
(Act 45.) was then taken up, (relating to tbe two
Estates sitting separately.)
His Ex. the Minister of Foreign Relations said
that tbe question now was, is the provision for one
House, a good one or not? I never believed that
th band of God was oa the people either because
the Constitution of 1852 was abrogated, or because
that of 1864 was established. It may be that two
Houses are belter than one. in large countries, but
' this i a small country. The remarks quoted from
Mr. D israeli and Dr. Lleber were not applicable to
this country. If there bad been two Houses, as in
f trmer days, the Nobles would probably have bad
two days sessions, instead of 45 as is now tbe cape
in one chamber. That would much more conTorta
ble for the Nobles. But aa it is now, Nobles, Rep
resentatives and Ministers meet face to face to
transact the business of tbe country. Did not be
lieve, as has been asserted, that the quality of the
legislators had deteriorated, because of their as
sociating in one house with His Majesty's adrisers.
Pointed out several of the Representatives who
were in the Legislature 20 years ago ; tbey are no
less iutellegent now than they were then. There
are also two clergymea here, sent up by their pa
rishioners, preachers of the living truth. Will the
business of the country be any better performed, if
tbe Representatives sit in one House and the Nobles
in another I that is the main question. There are
no parties in this country other than perhaps the
inslgniadant distinction of the ins" and the outs."
What are the benefits to result from the proposed
change? The reason lor the chanse of 1864 was,
that it was thought there was too large a machine
for the purpose.
Hon. Mr. Kaukaha made a lengthy speech against
the proposed amendment, principally on the
ground of the additional expense to the Treasury.
Hon. Mr. Kaiue was in favor of the proposed
amendmeut. He showed how by the present sys
tem of one House, the msjority of the representa
tives were effectually outvoted on every measure
that the people desired, by tbe minority, voting in
conjunction with tbe Ministers and Nobles. It was
so to every instance, in the votes on bills and ap
propriations of moneys. Thus the voice of "the
people was practically unheard in the Legislature
The debate lasted over three noura on the pro
posed amendment, and took a very wide range.
The speakers in favor were the Hon. Messrs. Kaiue.
Martin. Nawahi. Lonoaea. Mikaletm. Poli and Pai
kuli : and against. Hon. Messrs. Kipi, Kaai, Aholo
an 1 Koinoikehuehu.
While the Hon. Mr. Poli was speaking he refer
red to the member for liana as Mr. Kahsnanui,"
whereupon that gentleman rose in bis place and
threw a book at Mr. Poli's head, and attempted to
Beize an inkstand for the sime purpose.
The Sergeant-at-Arma was called to arrest the
member, but was alterwards instructed to release
him, and by a vote of the House he was repri
manded by the President lor his bteach of order.
Upon the ayf-s and noea being called on Mr.
Carter's proposed amendment to the Constitution,
the vote stood as follows :
Ayes II. II. Lunalilo, Hons. C. Kanaina. Hitch
cock, Nawabi, Martin. Knpakee, Hanaike. Kaukau,

Motiou to strike out. Motion to make it $3,000.
Hon. Mr. A. K. Judd spoke of the advantages
which have resulted from the introduction of new
plants, trees, and birds, under this appropriation.
To be sure, seme of the birds imported were mis
chievous and destructive, but other birds may be
got that will destroy those. Was in favor of 3,
000. Hon. C. H. Judd said the appropriation might
well be reduced, as the sum in the bill of 1870 bad
be n transferred " mostly to other objects.
The attempt to bring people from tbe other
groups had fai d. and would not probably be re
peated. In reply to a question. Mr. Judd stated
that imported birds at Koolau destroyed half tbe
rice crop. .
Hon. Mr. Carter moved to amend to read "For
the retnrn of disabled Hawaiian Seamen. $2,000,"
and "For the encouragement of Agriculture, $1,
000." After considerable debate, tbe item was passed
at 3.000 "for the encouragement of Agriculture.'

that it had been thou i? hi desirable to build the new

ORDER OF THE DAT.
Proposed amendment of the Constitution of 1864.
That Art. 23d of the Constitution be repealed. L st,
by a vote or 19 to 18.
Bill to authorize loan of $116,000, in Committee
of the House. Hon C. II. Judd in the Chair. Mo
tion made to indefinitely postpone farther considera
tion of the bilL
The Minister of Finance spoke in favor of a motion
to pass the bill. This improvement is Dot one of
questionable value. Let it not be thought that the
hotel will be a loss, most of the business men of the
town are of the opinion tbat the botel wilt not be a
loss. Tbe business has paid from tbe commencement.
Let the members bear tbis in mind. The members
from Honolulu wish to reduce the publio debt, so
does every member of the House. Wbet is the pres
ent debt of the Hawaiian Treasury ? 8177,000 ;
and yet it is not the debt. Tbe Hon. Mr. Mikaletni
need not be troubled by the size of the debt. I think
I have proved to bim satisfactorily (by counting
money on band, bonds, &c, as cash) that tbe debt is
but 880,000. Hon. Mr. Mikaiemi seems to think
thai we are bound to keep in debt ; four years ago
we were out of debt. The Treasury is not pilikia,
nobody is pilikia except Hon. Mr. Mikaiemi. How
did tbe present debt originate ? The first money bor
rowed was 860.0JO for Water Works. I would
advise you all t take care of yourselves and let pos
terity take cart of themselves. If Hon. Mr. Mika
iemi wishes to lave the public debt extinguished, T.
can do it by selling the Witer Works, and have a
surplus for tue botel. The salaries have been said to
be a very large proportion of the income, about 64
per ce t. I don't figure that way. I make it 8169,
0 0. If there ii any great disproportion between the
amounts appropriated and the income, it is the fault
of the representatives themselves, being due to the
increased euuis asked for hospit Is and sanitary
measures. This loan will not make the country at
all pilikia, no new tax will be required to pay the in
terett. I can provide for it comfortably so far from
being troubled about it I think that the event will
prove that the loan will pay itself.
Hon. A. F. Judd said that he was surprised to hear
that tbe ground on which tbe hotel stood was gov
ernment property. If this was the case, the bill was
sheer nonsense. The second section says tbat the
property will be transferred to the government if the
bill passes. The speaker had seen the deed of the
property and it conveyed the land to C. C. Harris
and J. Mott Smith without any reference to them as
trustees or ministers. The speaker did not believe
that the Ministers would make anything in the trans
fer. The two gentlemen who hold the deeds of this
property bave done perfectly right in securing this
property to themselves. If under the present man
agementwhich I have been assured by some of our
leading merchants shows tbat the person to whom it
has been leased for five years does not know bow to
keep a hotel, if the hotel p ijs, I would advise them
to keep the property as a joint stock enterprise. I
have been classed with those who approve this laying
out of money for publio improvements, I begMeave to
say that 1 do not belong to that class. When I read
the report of the Minister of Finance I understood
that he was of tbe opinion that the enterprise was
too large a one for private enterprise to undertake,
now he comes befor the House aud urges us to pass
this bill because the hotel will pay. If this is the
case those who advanced the mouey had better run
the hotel, and not try to saddle the people with that j
strauge anomaly of a hotel run by government.
Hou. Mr. Cuier wished to express his thanks i
for the appreciation felt by the Minister ol Finance I
for the representation Irom Honolulu. 1 ditTer !
with my colleague in attributing ill paternity ol j
this bill to tbe Minister of Finance alone. From j
some of its features I am inclined to believe tbat J
it is as much an offspring of the Minister of Foreign j
Affairs as of any one else. There is a cloud I
hanging over its early days (Mr. Harris What j
business is it of you wbat happened in my early
days?" Hon. Mr. Carter The early days of the
bill I referred to.") Its early history should bave
been no well known to the Minister of Finance as
to prevent him from misleading the numbers-. Tbe
Minister . of Finance had said that public' notice
had been given of meetiug. It was done by
printed notices sent to a favored, lew, the tax
payers were not invited, only capital. It was
agreed that a subscription paper should be drawn
up by which those wbo signed agreed to pay into
the treasury tbe sums pledged by them ; and it was
agreed between tbeni aud the Minister of the Inte-
m.1 am a AArn m floa nhrin e ! fi mSl TNa rt W
nor tbat a committee snouia ue iormea. mow
occurs a remarkable fact, the Minister of tbe Inte
rior disappears goes down through a trap door.
Tbe Minister of Finance agrees to issue negotiable
bonds of the Government. Wbat are negotiable
bonds? legal bonds. The enterprise was not a
private one- it was undertaken by the Govern
ment, and Mr. Harris statd at a meeting of the
subscribers that the Government had resolved to
push it (the hotel) to completion. The first idea
was. I believe, to bave a botel costing some 50 or
$60,000. The feature that resembles tbe Minister
of Foreign Relations is that having called a meet
ing of tbe only ones in tbis community that I
believe be respects, the monied men, he went on

difference in the value of property here and the

told that the hotel has pud from the ctart, I am
not going to dispute this, but I should have been
better satified if I bad seen the figures. The p"blicy

by Ministers was always a just one. I will read
lor you the report of a couversation between a
member of this House and the Minister of Foreign
Affair : Question by tbe M mister " What is your

himself. He did not eo to the ceremony of laying
the corner-stone because be wanted to stay at home. J
If there was any difference between vr. llutcniaon
and himself they would settle it ia their oflices. If
he did not attend the King on all occasions that was
a matter between himself and the Master whom be
served. Any conversation that the speaker may
have had with any member if the House touching
bis, the member's, duties lay between that member
and himself. In tbe opinion of the speaker it was
perhaps not necessary to speak of the guardianship
exercised by the Hon. Mr, Carter over the native
member from Honolulu who sit near bim in tbe rear
rank, but His Ex. the Minister of Foreign AOairs
bad such an opinion of the native member (afore
said), aa to convince him that it was necessary for
bim, the Minister, to have witnesses of any conver
sation tbat he, the Minister, might have witb bim.
His Ex. stated tbat he desired every one to vote as
they think best for the country. The question in
tbe mind of His Ex. was, bave your agents acted in
good faith to you ? And are you ready to support
your agents and take upon yourselves the benefit or
losses tbat may follow their acts? It has been said
that this was a public enterprise. It is very easy to
split words and give a forced meaning to wor.is.
This is a public enterprise undertaken by individuals
in a private capacity. We believe in the integrity
of the Hawaiian nation, and that that confidence
will not be violated by you. It has been said that
the hotel bonds bave nu legal value. Who ever said
they had ? Except that they will be paid by J. Mott
Smith, and C. A. Castle whose signatures they bear,
aud C. C Harris baa given his written obligation to
pay his half of the expense in case this House refuses
to accept the responsibility. The hour for adjourn
ment having arrived I will close for the day.
House then adjourned after granting leave to the
Committee to sit again on Tours Jay.
