THE TKEATY SECURED !
At las-t, the g r.,;ws Las Lttn rect ivcJ that

cttrry int cff.ct the Treaty of
K'-cirr-jcity lias r.ussed the H jur-e of Representa
tives. The Lark .Vary Brll IloUrts, Capt. Grey,
arrived off the port jestcrday forenoon, and as
she came in sight around Diamond Head gtily
decorated with flng and firing guns, the puMic
pulse went up tj fever heat, and all faces were a
6mile of anticipation of the good news. A
telegram from Mr. Luttrell, California member
of Congress, to Williams, Blanchard & Co.,
announcing the passage of the bill, was eent
ashore by the pilot bont, and read to an eager
crowd in Mr. K. P. Adams auction room, nnd
they gave repeated cheers.
The following is the Alta's telegram, iated
Washington, May 8 :
The IIou resumed considf ration of th bill to
carry into effect the Hawaiian Treaty. Thomas, of
Maryland, wddresaed tbe House relative to the
power ol tb? House to refuse to sanction a treaty
made by th? President and Senate, arguing that it
had the power. It was perfectly competent fr
the House to refuse its sanction to this treaty.
Tucker, of Virginia, followed in the same line of
argument. Under the Constitution, the House wa.
a part of the treaty making rrower, and could
exercise ta Constitutional suthority to refuse
legislation to carry out such treaties as it did not
approve of. He argued that the treaty was not
advisable as a bu-ineH transaction. It was a
positive loss to the revenue, with no compensating

were present, and voted for the bill.
y Hawaiian Rkciprocitt Trkatt. The long-delay
ed Keciprocity Treaty between the Hawaiian
Kinzdom and the United States may now be
considered tin fait accompli, having received the
indorsement of the House by a vole of 116 to 101.
That tbe Senate will sanction it is a foregone
conclusion The pros and cons of this subject have
been so frequently and exhaustively treated by the
press and in Congress that little more remains to
be said. Tbe assurance that it will go almost im
mediately into effect wil! remove the cloud of doubt
and nncertainty in which it has been so long
needlessly enveloped, and will at once tend to
more frequent and prosperous business relations
between the two countries. The Idea that permis
sion to land Hawaiian sugars in this country free
of duty would militate against the sugar interests
of Louisiana was simply preposterous. It is very
satisfactory to know that the matter has been
disposed of for some years, and there is good
reason to believe that reciprocity will work so well
as to insure a renewal of tbe treaty at date of ex-piration.-j&'.
F. Commercial Herald, May 11.
The Tribune editorially pays: The passage of
the Hawaiian Treaty in the House yesterday was a
surprise to its opponents. Its passage was made
possible by the absence of many members most
interested. The question about the treaty is
whether our own people or a few planters in the
Sandwich Islands will profit most by its provisions,
and on that point there is room for wide differences
of public opinion.
The relief which this long delayed news has
brought to our island community ia great.
Planters, capitalists and business men feel easier,
and mechanics confidently look forward to
brisker times in the near future. Cut the
government may well regard the news, at this
particular juncture, as a perfect god-eond. Not
only are they relieved from the necessity, which
was becoming pressing, of again sending the
Hon. Mr. Carter to Washington, but they are
now provided with some real work to place
before the Assembly to divert attention from
an unsatisfactory budget in the way of the new
tariff and revenue measures which they must
In this connection we take the opportunity to
correct the statement made by the Gazette of
this week, that " it has been decided not to send
Mr. Carter to Washington." No such decision
bad been made, but on the contrary we are
assured the Cabinet were most desirous that Mr.
Carter should go at once; but that gentleman,
being of tbe opinion that the influential friends
of the Treaty in the United States would not
suffer it to fail, preferred waiting a month
longer, aad the event has demonstrated the
correctness of his view in that particular.
Without doubt it will bo found that the recent
demonstration in San Francisco in favor of the
Treaty which took its initiative from Honolulu.
had something to do in bringing about the
result. But the smallnesa of the majority
fifteen only with 217 members present dem
onstrates what a narrow escape from defeat has
- The bill now goes to the Senate, . where its
approval is regarded as almost certain, and after it
has received the signature of the President the
dato at which the Treaty shall gcinto effect will
be a matter to be arranged between our Minister
at Washington and the Secretary of State.
In regard to the statement made in this paper,
that the Miniated of Foreign Affairs had made a
threat in the" Assembly, and which the Gazette
would bavo people believe is false, we have only
to say that we made the assertion upon informa
tion got from several members who we doubt not
"would give their names, if necessary, to satisfy
the editor of that paper, or any one else disposed,
6 .doubt the statement. Two were foreigners
and ode a native, who is as conversant with both
English and native as the Interpreter of the
jLasetnoly. Our reporter corroborates- their
assertions ; but if all these gentlemen have lied,
or been mistaken, and the Interpreter alone is
more correct or more reliable, we . stand
corrected, and sincerely regret that His Excel
lency ehonld have been so misrepresented, and
that the Gazette should have been put to so
much trouble through our fault. We are
confident, however, there will be found neither
lie, nor mistake, that needs an apology.
I A bill regulating the practice of medicine in
this Kingdom was given notice of last -Thursday
before the Assembly, and will probably come up
on its first reading sometime in the early part of
next week. It is entitled, " An Act to secure
intelligent medical and 6urgical treatment, and to
insure a more general and useful dispensation of
medicine." It provides that any licensed physi
cian shall be compelled to visit any sick person
whenever called, excepting when good and suffi
cient cause can be shown to tne satisfaction of
any competent court of jurisdiction for refusing
to attend. Physicians will not now have to ask
beforehand, " who is going to pay their bills? '
for it ia here provided that the Board of Health
shall bo authorized to pay them a reasonable
compensation for their services when calltd to
visit the actually destitute.
Provision is also made for thorough attendance,
and penalties ore provided against the violation
of any and all Sections of the Act, which is long
and comprehensive, embracing in a very thorough
manner, all points necessary to the public good.
Tbe requirements, while they are extremely rea-
tMitiable, are rigid, aJ l-.-ive no 1 - p h-Ie t-r the

" who would pay their charge before prescrib-
inatthr bedside of the sufferer, regardless of
the urgent call far immediate relief, which tbe
mere turn of their hand might have rendered.
These are the men who teed the intervention of
the law to remind them of their duties, and we
doubt njt that tho Legislature will pass the Act
without an amendment. It is more than probable
that a part of the Act, if passed, will be incorpo
rated in future licenses issued to practitioners.
We regret when we have to use strong terms of
reprehension in regard to the conduct of our
government, or the individual acts of ofDcials ;
but there are times when, as our coteraporary
says, in referring to like matters, forbearance
ceases to be a virtue." Such we believe to be
the case when an institution, useless for any
other purpose than that of mere adornment, is
kept up at an enormous cost by a government
scarcely able, by reason of its diminished finances,
to support that which is actually necessary to its
own vitality. In the Ministerial Budget for the
eneuing biennial period, from 47,470, the figure
for the same, for 1874, we have the appropria
tion for military raised to $53,840. This proposed
increase of $11,370 in so useless an expenditure
in this country, may appear but a small item in
the eyes of those with whom parade and the
donning of uniform are looked upon as distin
guishments par excellence, or to a few satellites
uniformed gentlemen who are allowed to partici-
pate in " doing the grand" on festive or Btate
occasions ; but to the man whose brains are not
broadly portrayed upon his back in spangles and
tlitter, and who bears an ordinary share of
common sense, it ia presented in quite another
aspect. If the safety of the country were endan-
gered, these are not the men we would look to,
nor the eoldicrB under their charge ; and it is no
wonder that people should look with strong rep-
rehension upon the appropriation of moneys from
the public treasury for the purchase of uniforms
alone, which have done no other service than in
helping to dra-a the public funds.
It ia time that those gentlemen most concerned
in the expenditure referred to, should know that
the country accords them no support, however
well they may be able to turn the vote of a leg -
islature. We would not deny His Majesty a
guard for his palace, or soldiers enough to fire the
Punchbowl battery for national salutes ; but
beyond this,, no matter how barely, a poverty
stricken nation like us should never go ; and we
trust that this item of expense, at least; will not
he hastily over-looked in any attempt that may
be made to crowd the Appropriation Bill through

lapse of thousands of years, by the transmocri- ! Hon. member who presented the Act-Resolution,
fying effects of wars and invasions, and by the
contact of superior civilization, is not the one to
. . .
send out people to be easily, or ever, moulded to
the requirements of a dietant and a different race
as are the Hawaiians. The foreign mechanics,
other than Chinese, feel their baleful influence in
their theft of trades and their cheaper working
of the same. They cannot compete with men
who require for food only a pound of rice, and

We see by the census of 1872, that out of two
thousand Chinese, most of whom have beeu
imported to labor on plantations, about one
quarter of the total number aro iu Honolulu;
in fact Honolulu is fast becoming a Chinese
town, as the numerous stores stocked with every I
variety of merchandise and products of home- j
industry will attest to any observer.

They compete for nothing, where competition
with them would be a common benefit. The
Chinese mechanic can work cheaper than other
mechanics simply because he has to buy little
from any one ek to live ; and what he e.irns is
hoarded for his relatives, or his own future use
in the flowery kingdom. Trickery, and economy,

As it may be interesting to some of our read

how the members of the Assembly vote on some
important questiors we append a list of the ayes
and noes as taken jn the proposed repeal of the
liquor law, as (ow'aig to the lateness of the hour
at which the vote was taken on the evening pre

unable to give them a p!acc. The vote stands as
follows, on a motion to indefinitely postpone the

On Monday a resolution was offered by Hon
Helekunihi, inineaehruji the Minister of the Inte-"
rior for expending public moneys without author
ization by law. After a slight discussion, the
resolution was ruled out of order.
i On Tuesday the Assembly, adjourned over to
F" ouId the British Parliament tnmlt oLaajourn-
j- informed the House that he did not need instruc-
tion from any other members, as he had already
' ....... . . t
received lull instructions in regard to pariiamen-
i tary usage from one of the highest rank, outside
j of the Assembly. This young member,
f have hinted before, shows a disposition to self

On the petition from Waialua, Oahu, that the j

mended that the prayer be accepted and the election
; declared void. The report of the Committee, j
however, was not accepted and the question of
seat or no seat was voted to be heard in Commit-
