E"T Tbe alarm of fire on Thursday erening at 10
o'clock, was caused by the burning ot some rubbish
on Fort street, in the rear of CapL JaNb Brown's
TntpntANCE Lecttre. We learn that there will
be a public lecture at the Hall cf "Ultima Thule"

will be delirered immediately after the installation of
the Lodge officers, which will also be public.
Emerson's Combination have played to
good houses sometimes crowded during the
past week, which is their last in Honoluul. If the
steamer, which is hourly expected, should not
sail for San Francisco before Saturday night, they
will give one more performance, aid the last.
Mr. Matt Williams desires us to express his sin
cere thanks to those who so liberally patronized
him on the occasion of his benefit.
Fast Rroisa at Driving. Not only do the
sailors of war Teasels visiting Honolulu appear to
think that furious and reckless riding ia perfectly
allowable here, but sometimes the officers even fall
into the same error. This was exemplified on
Wednesday last, on Nuuanu Avenue, when two
officers of the Russian corvette drove a buggy at a
ery dangerous pace for an hour or more. We like
to show every courtesy and make every allowance for
strangers, but they should be warned against such
practices, at least within the precincts of the town. .
Runaway. A horse attached to a wagon and left
standing near the Theatre on Wednesday evening,
about 8 'clock took fright at the demonstrations of
the noisy boys who generally congregate in that
neighborhood during the performance, and started
off up town at a breakneck pace. Crossing Bere
tania street into Emma street, he collided with the
iron lamp post on the corner, breaking it square off
about six feet from the ground, and converting the
lantern into smithereens. Up Emma street he went
like a tornado, luckily meeting no carriages on
route, and turned southward into School street, and
so down past the Hospital and out on to the plain
The team belonged to Punahou, and when last seen
was headed in that direction.
Archibald Campbell. We publish to-day the
concluding chapter of " Sixty-five years' ago in Ho
nolulu." It will be seen that the author contem
plated coming again to the islands in the character
of a Missionary, and to that end went to Cornwall,
Conn., to study. Do any of our readers among
those formerly connected with the American Board
know anything of the subsequent history of Camp
bell ? At the end of the volume before us ia an
appendix of some twenty pages, purporting to be "a
vocabulary of the language of the Sandwich Islands,"
which reads oddly enough Here is a specimen :
Come hither. Go on shore and" tell the King that
the Captain wishes to purchase a great many pearls."

Guessing, ahd what came of it. During the
November trip of the bark Comet, running to Ho
nolulu, (says a late number of the Alta) the passen
gers got up a little excitement to while away the
time, and do some good while being amused. They
agreed to "mark" tbe speed mads by the vessel
during a particular hour, and those failing to hit it
should contribute to tbe support of the Queen's
Hospital, in Honolulu. John F. Allen guessed 10
miles an hour, bitting the speed exactly; the others
did not fare so well. Mrs. Wilder said 94 miles;
Mrs. Flint and John Young, each marked 9 miles;
T. P. Clary put down 9 and l-16tb; Mrs. Davids,
Miss Board man, Julius Gerville, J. M. Partridge,
and J. Mansur wrote 8 miles; A. Garth and M. Mon-
serrat. 8$; Harry Ridgely. 81; Capt. E, Wood, 1.
The sum of $19 was contributed and handed over to
the Captain, to be given to the Hospital, and the
passengers have been anxiously looking for the ac
knowledgment, but it seems by the following letter
that the matter has been neglected and the money
has not yet reached its destination :
Honolulu, May 11th, 1874. j
'Afr. Clary Dear Sir : In answer to your in- ,
quiry, I would say I have not received from the Cap
tain of the bark lately called Comet, nor from any
other person, a sum of money, said to be about $19,
contributed by passengers on board that Teasel to
the funds of the Queen's Hospital.
" Respectfully yours,
" Chas. R. Bishop,
" Treasurer of the Queen's Hospital."
On the above named trip the Comet sailed from San
Francisco Not. 9tb, and arrived at Honolulu Nor.
26th, under the commmd of one Ferryman. The
nineteen dollars was but a petty sum, but it was
contributed for a sacred purpose. Where is it; and

the damages done by tbe rubers on the

st andrwommending that the itemof
t ommittee on the
12th of Feb. la:
nitely postponed. Tailed.
His Ex. the Attorney General presented the follow
ing report relating to rights of certain parties that
are now living at Kalaupapa:
llONOLL Ll', JulT 20th, 16H.
To tkt l.tyislatu t Jsttmbiv f the Hawaiian Islands ;
Gentlemen. Agreeably iih a resolution adopted by tout
honorable body refutation my opinion aa to tbe h-rality of the
restrictions on irou, owners of fctikanas within the bounda
of KalauMipa, 1 beg to reply, that I am well advised that there
are certain persona not diseased. living at that place, who are
owner of parcels of land thereat. And that the Board of
Ileaitn ia enforcing I lie law, that "no person, not being a
leper shall be allowed to viait cr remain upon any land, place,
or enclosure, by it set apart for the iola:Un ami coufliieoieot
of lepers, without permission of the Board," bare prohibited
their going to and from tha estatlihment, notwithstanding
these persons are owner of laud within Kalaupapa. I know
of no law to sauction such restriction, aa all persous hare a
legal right to go to and from their own lands, who are not
within the Leprosy Act, quarantined or prisoners.
ilasing consulted with the Board ol Health in this matter, I
am satisfied it has exerted its utmost to have the persons,
alluded to, kare Kalaupapa, and to that end baa offered to
purchase their lands, but without success. And therefore for
tha better carrying out of the Leprosy Act, which contem
plates isolation, and as the public exigencies require that the
persons alluded to should Dot reside at the Leper Establish
ment ; I would reapectfully recommend that an Act be patsel
by your honorable body, empowering the Blinister of the Inte
rior to purchase for the ne of the Government the kuleanaa
held by the above peraons, upon payment if just compensation
therefor as contemplated by Artlcie 14 of the Constitution.
Reapectfully, K. II. Stanley, Attorney General.
The Act to set apart a place for the lepvrs to re
side, was taken up on its second reading as a special
order of the day, and was referred to- a Special
Committee, consisting of the Hon. Messes. Kaai, Kui
helani, Minister of the Interior, Wilder, and W. T.
OBDEBS OF THE DAY. :
The House took np the consideration of the order
of the day, which was the remaining item of the
Appropriation Bill, as a permanent settlement for
His Ex. P. Nahaolelua. Carried.
On motion of the same gentleman, the sum of
S2400 was inserted in the Appropriation Bill for His
Ex. P. Kanoa. Carried.
His Ex. the Attorney General moved to insert in
the Appropriation Bill, under the head of the Inte
rior Department, $1,291.63, for damages done by the
rioters, as recommended by the special Committee.
Hon. Mr. Kaai moved to amend by increasing it
Hon. Mr. Nawahi moved to amend to 143 dollars,
as the damages to Mr. Ward's carriage, and that the
losses and damages of other persons, as well os the
members of this House, be indefinitely postponed.
Hon. Mr. Kauai said that the members of this
House had no right to claim for losses and personal
damages on tbe 12th of Feb. last, because they were
paid well for expressing their wishes. They elected
His Majesty Kalakaua as the King of the Hawaiian
Islands, and now he was on the Throne, therefore,
they ought to show respect to their Sovereign by giv
ing up their claims for damages.
Again they were gratified enough by receiving
offices, seeiug that most of them were government
office holders ; some were Tax Assessors and some
of them will be Tax Collectors, or perhaps get other
offices; why do they asks to be paid further? I
now move that this item be indefinitely postponed.

His Ex. the Attorney General from the Committee
to whom was referred the bill to regulate the right of
dower, reported consideration of the same, recom
mending to indefinitely postpone. Laid on the table
till tbe minority report comes up.-
The same gentleman from Committee to whom was
referred the Loan Bill, reported as a majority, con
sideration of the same as follows:
IJoJiOLtH, July lSUi, liH.
Ilox. Charles R. Bishop,
President of the L-jilitfve Assembly :
Your Committee to whom was referred the Bill lo authorize
a National Loan, etc., beg leave lo present the following report :
We have carefully conaidered the Bill and ita objects, and
have bad the advantage of comparing ita proviaiona with
other enartmenta intended for the same purpose, to wit:
Bills for National Loans in other count he j and we feel
assured that the Bill now before the Assembly is well calcu
lated to secure the objects intended, and are of opinion that
those objects are most important and beneficial to the general
We, however, deem it advisable to recommend the following
In tbe fifth line of the printed copy of the BUI it is provided
that the different forms of debentures should be issued in such
portions of each (of three forms) as His Majesty jnay deem
advisable, whilat in the 21t line it limits the interest bearing
Treasury notes not less than $50 to $100,000, and tbe nen
interest bearing notes of less than $50 to $70,000. We regard
tbe limitation as wise, snd therefore in order to make ths pro
iaiona of the first Section coincide with those of the second
Section, recommend that the same be amended by inserting
after the word "advisable" in the fifth line, printed copy, the
worda subject to the provisions of ihe 2d taction of this Act."
After careful consideration we are also of the opinion that
the three forms of debenture provided for by the Bill are
Your Committee are also of the opinion that the bonds
would te easily negotiated if the interest should bs t tated at
seven and three-tenths per eent instead cf a:x per cent., and
that the interest bearing Treasury cotes should bear the same
rate of interest aa the bonds, and therefore recommend that
the Bill be further amended by striking out tbe word "aU" in
the aixth line, printed copy, and inserticg therein the words
seven and three-tecths,"-rao likewise in the ninth line so
likewise by sirikiag out the word "four" ia ihe 80th. line,
printed copy, and insertirg tbe words "seven and three-tenths "
For the sake of greater certainly your Committee would
recommend an ameadmer.t in the 17lh line, printed copy, by
Inserting after the word "Uuen tbe worda "by authority cf
Majesty the King,'' so that the sentence will read : "And the
Miuiater of Finance may alao issue by authority of Bis Uaj
eaty the Kicg in exchange for coin," etc , and Insert same
won!a on 22d lice after word "issue."
And also for greater cerUitty your Committee would recom
mend that the Bill be further amended by adding after the
word "Dole" in the 2?:ti lice, prided copy, the following
words, "In coin when said interest and principal may become
due," so that the sentence will read i "And the faith of the
Hawaiian Government is hereby pledged for the due paymeot
of tbe intereat and tbe redemption of the trincipal of the atock
and Treasury notes in coin when said interest and principal
may become due."
And also beg leare to rec arc mend an amendment of flection
fl, line 61, primed Cfpy. by adding after the word " Council of
State," the worda "appointed by Ilia Majesty the King."
And a!ao to further amend the Bill, Bection 7. lines 2 and
83, by striking vut the worda "as well aa the money, whether
principal or intereat derived lroin the same," and by atrikicg
out tbe word " bond," line 63. aod lnserlicg the word " debent
ures," so that the Section will read: "And the securities
received by tbe Government, as in the sixth Sect loo set forth
shall be preserved intact aa a fund wherewith to pay the
debentures given for the loan, and shall be used for so other
purpose whatsoever "
We have the honor to submit our report (and also a re-translation
of the Bill with proposed amendments. In printed form)
with the recommendation that the Eill be thus amended and
dsss to be exfrosaed. Vours respectfully.

report of the Special Committee was read; and also,
the petition from Honolulu, praying that the Assem
bly do not pa.ss the bill, with the names cf the peti
tioners, (signed by SOO persons or more.)

that the petition be referred to a Special Committee.
On motion the bill was considered Section by Sec
tion. Hon. Mr. Mikalemi moved to indefinitely postpone.
lion. Mr. Mikalemi opposed the Dill. Thi Government 1
already heavily in debt, and It can't go any deeper. It it can
not Vv what It owea at home, it Is lolly to talk about borrow
ing from abroad. One million of dollars what an Immense
sum ! Where will It be found? Of course we must go abroad
for sucb so amount of money and If we grt it, w hen will It be
repaid f Where will tbe money come lroin to restay it, and
when ahsti we cave it? Never ! It is impossible that we shall
ever be able to repay it, no, never !
lion. Mr. Kipi said the ol ject In view iu introducing this
hill, was the development cf our resource, ami Ihe advance
ment of the country In wealth and prosperity. With the
means thitt will be afforded under this Bill, our sug-ir pluming
enterprise could be vastly increased, and those now In dsnger
be saved from destruction, rrnprrly man'tged, the introduc
tion of capital here will in a few-year double and treble our
preent valuation of property, and all will be benefitted, from
the Government down to the meanest subject. The present ia
Hawaii' opportunity, and he urged member to show by their
action on thia Bill, that they are influenced by sentiments of
enterprise and enlightened progress.
Hon. air. Nawshi opposed the Bill in a speech of considera
ble length and violence i
He saiil The reduction of expenditures so that they shall
be less than the receipts, Is the only wise mnrse for a Govern
ment to pursue ; and had thia Government followed that policy
in the past, we should not lo-day witness Uie spectacle l a
bill before thia House to authorize a lorn ol a million of dollars.
At present I believe that we are able to pay tbe national
IndehtedneaH, principal and interest, when it heenmra due.
The loan authorized by the Act of 1H72 i not all taken up vat,
perbapa a hundred thousand more ciui he borrowed under that
Act. It may be aaid that we pay higher interest by borrow
ing at home than the money could be got for abroad. I Urlievs
myself it will be better to borrow money at home, paving
therefor 12 or 15 per cent, than lo borrow abroad at lesa
rates. If we borrow at home, we know all about It, and can
manage it, but if we go abroad fur money, we never w ill know
how much it is, nor how Ihe loan is msnag-'d. We shall be
in the dark, and the first thing we know, there will cornea
demand for the principal and interest. Ihia bill will be a
cause of great piiikias for this nation and may result in dis
turbances among the people.
lion. Mr. Nnukana supported the Bill. He referred lo the
petition from Honolulu againM the paisage of the Bill which
had been read, and which he characterised as an Impudent
one, lor It threatened another riot if Ihe Assembly should dare
to disobey the 300 signer. But he ahould do what lie consid
ered his duty to his constituents and to the country at large,
in apite of tha threats of ignorant I'rsona. He brllcved Ibis
measure was a good one. The object waa to dcvrlope our
reaourcea, and that waa what this country needa at preaenl,
more than anything else, foms) Honorable members spoke
alarmingly of our present public debt. What did It amount to
And were there not ample means to pay It, in the properties
owned by Government properties that are valuable and unin
cumbered t He did not slure in Ihe fears expressed by Ihe
member from Honolulu, (Mr. Mikalemi) that if we borrowed a
million w should never be able to repay it. The Introduction
of that amount of capital into the country would Increase our
production, build up new induatries, and benefit all classes to
such a degree that the debt would be no inure-a burden than Is
now the sum owing by the Treasury. One thing was pretty
sure, and that waa this If some auch measur a this Hill Is
not passed, our sugar and rice and other enterprises will f II,
aod we shall all go back to the faahion of old times to the
Hon. Mr. Aholo favored Ike hill. Tho money which it was
proposed to borrow, would, if properly managed, be a vast
benefit to the country at large. If we borrow a million, at the
rate of seven and three-tenths per cent., that will be, $73,000
per annum for in tr rent. And at the end of twenty years, (hat
will amount to $1,460,000, which, added In the principal,
makes the sum of $'4,400,000. And If we pay seven and three,
tentha per cent, interest on the million, and loan that sum out
at ten r cent., then at the expiration of twenty years there
would be a surplus in ihe Treasury of $540,000. This might
be the result, if the loan was wisely managed.
Hon. Mr. Kaai said that undoubtedly the future destiny of
the country, for prosperity or the oposite, waa now in Ihe
hand of th, Assembly. A nation was not exactly like an In.
dividual, In Ihe matter of incuring a debt, for it waa frequently
the wiseat of policies f a Government lo borrow, and borrow
largely, when the money ia to he laid out for the general rood,
aa is proposed In thin case, and the4ncurring ol a debt will be a
step in advance. He stated some interesting facia In the his
tory of Mauritius, from which we may learn a lesson or two.
That was an island not much larger than Uahu, but Ihere are
255 plantations upon it, which annually produce ten million
worth of sugar, and $150,000 worth of rum. But this great
height of productiveness had not been reached without largely
introducing foreign capital. We may also immensely increase
our production and our general wealth and prosperity by the j
proper negotiation and careful management of an adequate
Ills Ex. the MinUter of the Interior was in favor of the gen
eral Idea of the Bill, but was not clear aa to its detail, or that
it was wise to fix the amount of ths loan at a million.
Hon. Mr. Bishop opposed tne bill, because he believed It was
not for the general interest. He did Dot believe it wss safe to
incur a debt of the magnitude proposed, Lat he might vole for
one of $200,000. ft is not the pail of wisdom lo incur a large
debt, beyond what ia actually Queued for present emergencies.
There was much that had heeu said about our plantations
being sunk by high interest. That waa not ao. The difficul
ties with ua are, Ihe lack of labor and population. If we have
tte men to develop tbe reaourcea of tbe aoil, the money can be
had, and quite enough of it at reasonable rates of interest. If
it was thought that we could borrow money abroad cheaply
and without diiKmliy, it would be found to be a mistake. Be
side paying the 7 3J0 per cent, aa provided in the t ill, oar
bond would sell perhaps for some where in the neighborhood
of 80 cents on the dollar. But there is no neces-tiy of going
abroad for money sufficient for our need.; n can be got here
and at fair rates.
At half-past 4 r. M. the Committee rose, and obtained leave
to sit again to-morrLW, whereupou ihe House adjourns 1.
Seventieth Day, Thursday, July 23. ;
His Ex. the Attorney General read first time an
Act to codify and revise the laws of the Kingdom;
passed to a second reading' under the roles.
The same gentleman gave notice cf intention to
introduce an Act to amend r.a Act regulating elec
tions. cmUEm or toe day.
.- The House proceeded to the order of tbe day,
which was the Loan Bill in the Committee ci the
Whole, Hon. W. T. Martin in the Chair.
Hon. Mr. Kaukaha stated that he bad received an
answer from bis constituents in regard to his letter,
inquiring their opinions as to the Loan Bill. The
answer given by them was favorable to the Bill, but
opposed to the issuing of paper money.
He proceeded to aay, mat in hie opinioa it waa highly desir
able that Government should negotiate a considerable loan at
thia time, and proceed at once to pay off all ita amall indebted
neaa. On the present public debt, a high rite cf intereat is being
paid, and if we can get a large 1 aa at lesa Interest and ex
tinguish the present dbt, and have a surplus left with which
to aid in the development of our resources, ths gain wlU be
unmhtakeable. If, hewever, some such plan Is not adopted
now, be apprehended that the accumulation cf small loans at
high interest would in Ihe end prove a heavy burden to the
country. For these reasons, he supported the Bill.
Hon. Mr. Haupu opposed the liill aa a whole, and Ihe Sec
tions in detail. lis doubted much if any good would result to
the country by the proposed lean. It had been said that one
object ia getting the loan was to reloan it out to sugar planters.
These sugar planters are complaining o losses ail the time;
now if they are o unsuccessful In managing with their own
money, how can we expect that they will do any better with
the money ol other people ?
Hon. Mr. Kahanu -said that if the Assembly sanctions the
loan, then there are many other things to be done before it is
accomplished. It has to te deliberated on by the King and the
Commissioners, aome cf whm are lo be member of the Privy
Council, before any steps tan be takan. Good precautions
appear to Lavs been taken to secure wse and careful action.
Hon. Mr. Kapule supported the measure, as one well calcu
lated for the benefit cf the agriculturists. He would suppose,
for instance, a man who owned a thousand acres of land, but
without means whereby to Improve it and there were many
such. If there was in the hand of the Government a fund to
which he could apply, and borrow enough money, at a fair In
tereat, to improve hi land', and with the cultivation of a crop
employ hands, and by and bye repay the money he had bor
rowed and have a little Uft for himaeif would not everybody
be benefitted by the transaction t
If ou. Mr. Kauai bad heard it aaid by aupportera of thia bill,
that with the money obtained from this big loan we would pay
off all the preaent public debt. But the L.n Itself does not say
ao, and therefore he atrongly cpp--aed It. tf a provision Is in
serted to the effect that when the loan may be effected, the
present national debt shall be Cm paid oil, and the balanue
applied to tbe development cf our resources, he would lhen
support the b.il. But there Is no sach provision nor any such
intent apparent. Therefore he opposed the bill, as he would
Satan himself. In fact, he compared it oa iecco.4 Satan, com

f Immediately after the reading of the journal, ths
House resumed consideration Zi the Loao Dill, io
Committee of (he whole. :
' Hon. C. K. Bishop movsxl bis atnondment of $200,
000, in place of one million.
His Ex. the Miuiater of the Interior said that tbal
kmoqnt would not assist the productive Intereats and
internal improvements of tbe country, ff tbe steamer
Kilauta should meet with an accident, perhaps tbe
sum of 1 00.000 would be required fur the purchase
of a new steamer. We know that we must bave aa
inter-island steamer. By tbe Section as it reads, U
provides for borrowing ' a earn ftot exceeding &
million," and a less sum may be borrowed.
After considerable discussion, the vote was taken
on Section 1, which was passed by a large majority,
as recommended by tbe Committee).
On motion, the Committee took up Section 7 of tbe
Bill, which provides thai amck portion cf the loan as
may be deemed advisable, shall be devoted to build
ing ware-bouses, the promotion of steam navigation
between the islands and aid of immigration. A
lengthy debate ensued, when the Section was passed ,
as amended by tbe Special Committee, after which .
the Committee rose, and tbe House adjourned.
Thf. President waa asked if be waa aatltsfied to .
part with bis only daughter. " Yea, if ahe can viait
us often enough." And bow often, would you
like her to visit you?" said the lady. ' I want ber ,
to visit us twice a year," said be, " and stay six
months at a time." It Is expected that they will
return some time during tbe fall for a short visit,
fierhaps to stay all winter. Mr. Sartoria has large
ended estates In this country, and it was while
be was coming to tbe United StaU-s to look after
his property that be met bis wife for tbe first lime
on tbe steamer.
The presents received by 'Mrs. Sartorls,. nee '
Grant, are valued at $60,000. They are to be
packed up and sent to Europe. General Grant
allowed bis daughter, tome months ago, to name 1
what be should give ber, without regard to coat. .'
Her choice waa a set of black and one of white c
lace. Mrs. Grant wrote Immediately to tbe wife -of
our Minister of Brussels, Mrs. J. P. Jones, an'
intimate friend of the family, giving tbe order for -tbe
handsomest to be bad ia Lurope, regardless of,
expense. The result is lace such aa baa never be-;
fore been seen in this country, and possibly bas
never before found its way into other bands than
those of royalty. Tbe ladies lingered with tbe
most profound admiration over the inspection ol
these valuable bridal gifts, and not until tbe time
for the departure cf tne young couple did they quit '
