the Appropriation Bill will be introduced on Monday
ORDER OF THE DAT.
The Resolution of yesterday asking for a schedule
of Government lands, etc., introduced by the Hon.
Mr. Nawahi. He explained that it was not intended
as an expression of want of confidence in the Minis
try; the object was to ascertain what lands asd the
value of them, as now owned by the Government all
over the islands.
His Ex. the Attorney General said : The Honora
ble member from Funa eava that the Resolve to com
pel the Minister of the Interior to show the number .
and value of Oovernment lands, is not meant to show
want of confidence in the Ministry, and he says the
same of the Resolve of the Honorable member from
South Kona, in regard to prohibiting sales of land by
the Minister of the Interior. But it is useless to deny,
that many in this House and out of it, have supposed
that the action of the House in these matters did in
dicate want of confidence. I am a man of plain
speech, not always having at my command soft words
or flattery. And I shall speak plain words to you
now. I say first to you, that I should gladly an4
gratefully yield my office to any one who will relieve
me of it, and I had the time feeling in my former
office during the last four years; aa soon as I see
that this country feels any want of confidence in me,
1 shall very promptly retire. But no one can be so
ignorant as not to know under what circumstances
this Administration took office. At no time in Ha
waiian history, has the condition of this country re
quired more firmness, wisdom, and earnest patriotism.
We are well aware of that, and desire to do for the
country all that we can do. Of course if you ask us
to do what is impossible, or what we regard as inju

His Ex. the Minister cf Foreign Kclatkns said he
sympathized with the member who introduced the
Resolution. It was highly necessary that the Gcv

the work of Cuverainent surveying is goirg on, and
the Ministry is amicus to comp ete it as soon as prac
ticable; so far as now completed, any member can in
form himself by calling at the Government effice.
Hen. Mr. Koakaou could not see why it was so
difficult for Ministers to piTe the information asked
for, had they sold the Government lands, got the
money, and "now wanted to hide it? (The Chair
called the gentleman to crder. )
The Resolution was amended to the effect that the
Minister furnish such information as to Government
lands, as is in his possession, aud passed.

EEPORIS OF COMMITTERS.
Hon. Mr. Dowsett from the Committee on Finance,
reported on petitions praying for the exemption of
parents of five or more children from personal taxes;
the Committee reported a bill to that effect. Adopted.
Hon. Mr. Kaukaha from the select Committee on
the bill to amend Section 42 of the Civil Code, re
ported the same as amended by them.
Hon. Mr. Dowsett as a minority of the Committee
reported adversely to the bill.
Hon. Mr. Wilder moved to indefinitely postpone
the report of the majority. He did not think it wise
to tie the hands of the Ministry. Contingencies
might arise between the sessions pf the Legislature
when it would be almost absolutely necessary that
the Ministry should be at liberty to dispose of Gov
ernment property in Honolulu. If members have
no confidence in the Ministry, let them say so at once.
As to the Court House property, is it wise to hold on
to it now that we don't need it, simply because we
have an aloha for it. What will that property lease
for? Not probably for more than $800 or $1000 a
year, and the Government will have to keep it in
reaair. Let members figure a little on this matter.
Tie property can be sold for probably $20,000 or
nore, cash, and the interest on that at say nine per
cent, will be an object The Ministry in proposing
to sell that property, have doubtless looked upon the
subject in a purely dollar and cent way. He hoped
fur the credit of the country abroad, members would
be careful about passing a provision tieing up the
bands of Ministers in the way proposed.
Hon. Mr. Kaai, the introducer of the bill, said
that nothing was further from bis intention than to
express any want of confidence in the Ministry. His
experience in the past two sessions showed that
Ministers had been much more severely taken to task
then than now. But the objeot of tho bill was to
prevent Government property from being sold with
out the greatest necessity, and after the most careful
consideration. If the Government want to raise
money from sale of property, let them sell lands
outside of Honolulu.
non. Mr. Kankaha said that the object of the
Ministers as explained to the Committee, was to sell
the Court House for $20,000 instead of borrowing
that amount at an annual interest of 81,BV. But
the Committee were of the opinion that by holding
on to the property a few years, its value will be en
hanced, and that it will bring a good deal more than
$20,000, two years from now. The building in
question will be an excellent one to turn into a
woolen or cotton factory, If the Government shall
think best to establish that industry here. In any
view of the case, he did not see any reason for haste
in selling this property. Better sell outlying lands
to the people, who are petitioning for them. In the
meantime, he nor the Committee had no personal
feeling against the Ministry. But should this meas
ure fail to pass, then the Assembly might just as
well be prorogued and members be sent to their
His Ex. the Attorney General said :
I have listened attentively to the remarks of the
Hon. members from Hanalei and North Kona in
favor of the report, and reply in the same concilia
tory and fair spirit with which they have spoken.
Until now, the Ministry has had no opportunity to
speak on this subject. List Wednesday, we opposed
the passage of the bill to engrossment before we had
been enabled to consult upon it, but we did not refer
to its merits. Now I ask the House to suspend judg
ment on this matter, until both Bides are shown.
Reasons in favor of the report are given which I ad
mit have some force. I ask you to try whether the
opposite view has not more force.
There are three views of the question.
I 1. That tho retort loea show want of con&vienee
in the Ministry. Member may say it docs not, but
this rccAsure proposes to take frvm the Ministry and
the King the discretionary power which alt previous
S-vcreigrm an 1 M:tii?ers have hel l, an I such as ia
given to the governments cf foreifrn eonntrieo. If
you a 1 rt thi rer-Jrt. rou show to the country that
! people cannot rr!y on the contracts or policy adopted
I ty the Government; that after the administration
j makes itj financial or business plans, the Legislature
I may step in at any moment to defeat tliem. Wukl
j not this icjare the crc iit f the Government, by
! lowering the value cf its bonds, ty making it more
j difficult to obtain funis r.ecosary to carry oo the
! Governmeut. and ty trinicg up claima of Govern
I met. t creditors? All I can tay is, that many people
j so think.
J 2. .A second view is, whether a SAle cf the Court
j House is really for the public benefit. Sometimes a
; sale cf land is wise and some times net. I am net a
j business man, anl can only give an opinion about
, business matters such as any one eW would give,
i Ia giving an opinion cf a point cf law, I undertake
j to sty scniethiug which every one else, without pre
I vious study, could not say. ButasfVr business. I
only try to earn enough to pay my debts, ana that is
all my business experience. But I can say this, that
the first thing in deciding to sell land, is whether yo
wiah to sell. I think we had better -!l land, not bv
forced sales when the market is low, bat whenever
we can sell on good terms. It keeps money in the
country. Our agriculturists have expeuded their
hundreds of thousands here, and the laborers have
received the money; but it has tvn a misfurtune to
us, that much of the money of Honolulu has goue
abroad instead of being invested in the country.
Give a man land for his own, and then he has a
stake in the country and will do more for the public
benefit as well aa to improve his land. Why, I would
give a house lot from my small patch of land to any
one who would put up a handsome structure there.
Instead of the dusty sheds on the Esplanade, we
ought to have magnificent store buildings there to
greet the eye of the visitor when he first touches our
shores, and to bring in good interest and taxes to
the Government. Sell land, not all at ouce, or at
any time, but ia lots at favorable times, and you
strengthen the country. Again, it hurts the credit
of any one to borrow at exorbitant rate. A few
months will bring in onr revenues, but Jut now,
unless we sell, it may be necessary to borrow at too
high rates cf interest. I do not suppose this land is
to be sold without obtaining a fair price. I hope the
time is not many years distant, when all the land in
this Kingdom will greatly increase in value. The
great measure from which I hoped for the most benefit
I mean the division of two Houses ia lost; but
still I hope well for the future. If this land is sold
for $25,000, the taxes and interest would amount'to
more than the most sanguine expectation of the in
crease in value. It ia said that the Court House can
be used for a Government store-house, or for a hos
pital, or a factory. Is that the place for buildings of
that sort? I think not. It is aluo said that this is
like a cession of Pearl Harbor. It is nothing of the t
sort. As long as this Kingdom holds out, it will and
must protect all people in their right We say to
the people of all lands, as the United States says :
Come here, bring your money, your beat men and
your enterprise, ana you shall have poace and pros,
perlty. No one ever dreamed that a private land
sale was a cession of territory to n foreign power. It
is further said, that money should be raised from
other sources, or bj lessening expenses. We all wish
to lessen expenses as far as can be done with safety,
but that does not bring money. Is it not well to
raise money by selling what we can well spare, if we
can get a good price ?
3. Finally, docs not this bill lessen the Royal pre
rogative T The proposed amendment to transfer the
power to sell to the Privy Council is suggested be- j
cause there are more Hawaiians there. Do we forget
that one member of the Cabiuet is a Hawaiian, and
that nothing can be done without tha express sanc
tion of the King himself? I am tired of the words
haole and kanaka, and wish there were no suoh
words. I am not voting and talking for any set of
men, but fbr the whole Kingdom. As well talk of
voting for the interests of red haired or blue eyed
people. It is not because a man's hair is light or
dark, but because bis ideas are good, that I listen to
him. Now the bill may do harm, and can do nu
good. I hope the report will not be adopted.
Hon. Mr. Kauai was opposed to selling any more
Uovernment property to foreigners.
Hon. Mr. Cleghorn opposed tho report of the
Committee. The Court House, if retained by I lie
Government, will be of no practical benefit as a
ware-house without great expense. The ware-housei
should be on the wharf. If the Court Houmq U sold
to foreigners it cannot be takon away, but will pay
taxeg. Let members look at the Government prop
erty' opposite the old Custom House, which has fur
years lain idle and unprofitable. Had it been sold,
and improved the whole oommuuity witb the Gov
ernment as well would have been benefitted. The
policy of England and the United S ates, is to sell
land to whoever will give the highest price for it.

His Ex. the Minister of the Interior had listened
to the arguments of member, in favor of the amend
ment but he fulled to be convinced of their correct
ness. He explained again how the sale of the Court
House property would be a financially good operation.
Hon. Mr. Dowsott explaiued how the proposed
amendment would ' operate to cripple a great many
land transactions great and small throughout the

off all the restraints on the people which they
thought were proper. We to net not forget thai
with all the goed that Civiliuatioii brines, evil
