Gqi.ng on a Cbi'ik. We understand tbat the U.
S. S. Lackawanna will leave port oa & cruise to
windward, shortly after tbe arrival of tbe next mail,
and will be absent about two or three weeks.
A Correction". We were in error last week in
confoandicg tbe Department of Foreign Affairs with
tbat of tbe Military. By an act cf 1874, the office
of Secretary of War and tbe Navy " was abolished,
aad the Minister of Foreign Affairs bss now no con
nection with tbe Military for which fsct be no
doubt feels thankfal.
Mcsic this Afternooh. Tbe band will play at
Emma Square this afternoon, commencing at half
past four o'clock. Following is tbe programme :
Treaty March .....Ilerger
Overture Opera, Poet and Feasant 8uppe
Grand Selection Opera Sonnambula... .....Bellini
Noveller Waltx new Gung'l
Selection Opera The Barber of Seville Rossini
Promenade Quadrille, new Coote
Break Down. We understand tbat one of the
rollers of Mr. Corn well's mill at Waikapu gave out
last week, and Mr. Cornweil himself came down with
it oa the Kamoi to Ilonolula to have tbe breach re
paired, which will not take long; and altogether the
accident will be of no serious moment, as tbe crop is
nearly off and tbe delay will be pat short.
Mistakes Duty. We understand that on
day night, las', week a policeman (foreigner) so far
forgot his d-ty, which be was probably sent there to
perform, as to have challenged to single combat any
man at .be dance. We believe tbe scene of the af
fair was somewhere on Liliha Street, where, we are,
given to understand, there are several danee halls
inactive operation, some of which are not --of that
most deleotable character.
'A reception was held on boaad the U. S. S. Lack
awanna on Thursday afternoon of this week, begin
ning at two o'clock and ending at sundown. Many of
our citizens were present and enjoyed themselves to
satiety. Tbe main-deck of tbe vessel was cleared.
and handsomely decorated with tbe flags of all na-
tions; ana tbe music ana dancing were kept up till
the last moment. His Majesty the King and suite
were present on the occasion.
LscoxsisTEiiT. A few weeks since the Gaze (tee in
making a severe onslaught on one of our govern
ment ofSciila, so far forget itself as to utter iLe in
discriminate charge that rudeness was " characteris
tic of our government officials." As a rule, Hawai
ian officials are as courteous as those of any other
government," is tbe opinion given on the tame
tubject, in the last issue cf tbe same paper. What
weight do such random and conflicting assertions
carry with them T
Ho fob the Telegraph ! Given the Treaty of
Reciprocity, the Telegraph must follow. In an article
on the subject of telegraphy-generally, the S. F.
Bulletin says : " The telegraph to the Islands would
have made tbe Hawaiian treay much easier of ac
complishment. When Kalakaaa went to Washington
he almost conquered an impossibility. lie made a
treaty a possible fact. Given, a telegraph wire to
his capital, the treaty would have been assured long
before this time."
The Opicm Law. The 'Attorney General has
brought forward an act to repeal the existing Opium
Law. This is what we saw was necessary from the
begining; and we have more than once called atten
tion to the oppressive nature of the existing law
and have indicated the necessity of better Legislation
in the matter, Since it baa been strangely decided
to be constitutional, it will no doubt please all intelli
gent people to see a repeal, as gross injustice to the
rights of individuals have more than once accom
panied its working. ,
Fireman's Election. Tbe various nominations
of the different Fire Companies for the coming elec
tion of Engineers for the Department, areas follows :
By Engine Co, No. 1. Geo. Lucas, Chief; Jno. Nott

The Queen's Birthday.
The fifty-sixth anniversary of the birth of Her ,
Majesty Victoria, Queen of. Great Britain and Ire-,
land, was celebrated in this city by tbe display of ;
tbe Sags of all nations on the shipping in port and jj
on 'numerous flagstaff on shore; by a salute at (
noon from the U. S. S. Lackawanna ; by a diplo-i j
ma tic reception at tbe residence of the British
Commissioner ; by a less formal and unofficial one
at the office of the British Vice Consul, (T. H. Da-
wies. Via. : and in the evenine by the annual

reports of the Secretary and Treasurer of tbe So
ciety show its condition as fairly prosperous, and
that it is doing its quota of good in the community.
The officers of last year were all re-elected. After
the business meeting, some fifty gentlemen sat
down to a handsome spread of solids and fluids, of
which former the roast beef of old England " of
course formed the piece de resistance. The follow
ing regular toasts were proposed by the Chairman,
Major J. II. Wodebouse, (H. B. M.'s Commis
sioner,) and drank with appropriate honors.
1. The Queen. With song, God Save the
Queen." and three cheers. -
2. King Kalakaua. Soig " Hawaii Ponoi."
3. The British Nary. Sdng " There Is a Flag.''
Responded to In fitting term3 by Commander
Hare, of H. B. M. S. Myrmidon..
4. The Navy of the United States. In proposing
this sentiment, the Chairman took occasion to thank
Capt. Greer, of the U.S.S. Lackaicanna, in the name
ol bis Sovereign and his fellow countrymen, for
tbe kind courtesy of a national salute fired from
his ship at noon tbat day in honor of the Queen.
The toast was duly honored, the company joining
heartily in the chorus of the song which followed
"The Red, White and Blue.'' Capt. Greer
briefly but appropriately returned thanks, and ex
pressed himself as gratified at haying had the op
portunity of testifying hi respect, in common with
all his countrymen, for the noble Queen cf tbe
British Empire. The remainder of the evening
was most pleasantly passed in songs and social in
tercourse. The follow ing are the officers of St.
George's Benevolent Society for the ensuing year:
H. B. M.'s Commissioner Perpetual President
Theo. II. Davics Vice President
J. S. Smithies Secretary
Hon. A. 8. Cleg-horn ...Treasurer
Relief Committee Messrs. Alexander Vounf, Geo. Lucas, and
Bon. Godtrey Rhodes.
The evening closed with a vote of thanks to the
managers of the British Club, for their courtesy in
granting the use of tbe rooms, and singing of "Aald
Lang Syne," with crossed hands around the table.

lature. It proposes to do away with tbe tabu on
giving spirituous liquor to natives I am not a mis
sionary, nor are any of my family missionaries. I
was not brought up with the idea tbat it ia a crime
to drink wine or liquor. I hate been in tbe habit of
taking wine and beer, and now and then a little
spirit for over fifty years, and I hope to lite many
years longer to drink it. I mention this Mr. Presi
dent to show that I am not prejudiced by education
or otherwise against liquor. But, Mr. President, it
becomes my duty here to-day to tell this Assembly
what is the result of my experience, and will state
that as far as regards ardent spirits, at any rate. It
is a miserable beverage for any human being. My
experience is and tbe doctors confirm it that it
sets the heart beating, increases its action. and if
the habit of drinking spirits be long continued, it
finally bursts some of the arteries or veins. We have
all seen a fire engine work, and bow when it is work
ed too violently tbe hose is often burst, and all its
effect is spoiled. Tbe human heart is a kind of
force-pump a fire engine on a small scale and it
often occurs that hard drinkers thus burst some of
the arteries. I have known hundreds cf native Ha.
waiians die in this way, and I am sorry to say that
during my residence of a quarter of a century here,
I have seen dozens of those who came from my
original country die from the effects of tbe too free
use of ardent spirits.
It is urged that this law is unconstitutional, bat
the judges of tbe Supreme Court have decided that
it is not. Do not be led away by pettifogging argn-
ments as to the unconstitationality cf this ilaw. The
18 older haD 7?ur Constitution. I have urged
uion this House tbe importance oi gaaraing toe
Constitution, but there are times, Mr. President,
when even tbe Constitution sinks into insignificance;
for what is the advantage of a Constitution without
Hawaiians to enjoy it T What avails a Constitution
to dry bones T We have beard a great deal lately
about increasing tbe Hawaiian race, and tbe cele
brated Memorial that was addressed to tbe King on
this subject, recommends to His Majesty ia conjunc
tion with able and faithful men in bis kingdom to
devise measures for this purpose; is this one of those
No one imposes this restriction upon yonyou

Tight to do so. I am sorry to see the Nobles of the
land urging such a measure as this, and encouraging
such ideas as fell from tbe Hon. member for Ewa
and Waianae tbat, as we had tried a policy of re
striction for twenty-six years, without increasing the
people, now says the Hon. gentleman let as try
We have also heard a great deal about the danger
to the Independence of this kingdom by tbe decrease
of tbe Hawaiian race. I can conceive of nothing,
Mr. President, that would be more likely to finish
the independence of the country within ten years
than to pass this law making liquor free to Hawai
ians. No government could ever stand in this coun
try whichdvocatcd such a measure, for they would
have the support withdrawn from them of the best
men of the country all over the gronp.
If, Mr. President, we were legislating here to-day
for orraelves tbat is, for the men inside tbe walls
of this Assembly I think I should vote in favor of
this law, because I should know tbat we were legis
lating for Intelligent men, men with a character at
stake, tbe picked men of the country; and that were
liquor made as free as possible to all cf you, you
would not take more than was good for you. Bat,
Mr. President, let as remember for whom we are
legislating here to-day; not for ourselves, bat for
40,000 comparatively ignorant men, women and
children throughout the group. I feel confident that
yon will therefore throw oat this bill.
One word . more as to what the Honorable Noble
who has just spoken (Mr. Kaai) said to yon about
the unconstitutionality of the law aa it stands. The
Honorable Noble tries to weaken your estimate of

Mr Chairman: The t ul n w un Jrr Cvnsi.Ieration
is fie i f tbat c!es if li'.'.m svliich have ret-eaexHy
t-eeu brvught lorward in fvroier itis if the L'tf
islature. with tbe intent to repeal a certain ticunu
of the Civil Code. I am unable to eoi jecturt what
great good ia to result from tbe proposed legislation,
bet anticipate tbe effect would be In tbe ether direc
tion. Tbe law mtricticg tbt traffic, which it Is now
'j sought to repeal, was enacted under tbe Constitution
i of 152. ia the re:go cf Klcg Kanikeaouli of bappy
memory; it was enacted after cartful consiJeratu n
by the cbiefs and the wisest men cf tbe nation.
tbou2htful and anxious for tbe best interc?s cf the
race. It has been tbe law cf tbe land during fire
successive raigns; and now tbe question may be
asked. What evil has resulted from ibis law daring
tbe many years in which it has bern in forre, that it
is to earnestly sought to b repealed? Wb has
been damaged by its operation ? I ask you repre
sentatives cf tbe petple, and yoa Nobles, to point if
you can. to any evil e fleets from this law.
We are here assemble.! to legislate for the good cf
tbe whole people; to provide laws which shall secure
the welfare, the prosperity and the protection of all.
and we should act with extreme care.
It has been urged by tbe friends cf tbe bill, tLat
the law as it stands is restrictive of tbe rights cf
Hawaiians; tbat in tbe matter tf privilege, it puts
them beneath tbe foreigner, and eveu tbe lowest
of other nationalities wbo cume bare have more lib
erty than tbe natives cf lbs toil These arguments
are but puerile. Does any one belief that by
moving tbe restrictions on liquor any possible benefit
will result to tbe Hawaiians t 1 say moat emphatic
ally so ! And if tbe truth shall be acknowledge,!,
every one in this "Assembly will say tbe same. I
state a well known and undisputed fact, when I sit
that the use of iutoilcatiog drinks is an unmixed
evil, cfien disastrous in its consequences. Willyoa
expect good to result from giving more facilities to
In regard to the degradation of tbe Hawaiian io
being deprived cf tbe privilege of drinking rum like
other people, let me say tbat although I drink u.y
self, I have never really felt tbat it was anything io
oe proud or; or that a place where Jiquor was axIJ
was a respectable place to be seen in. On tbe con
trary, tbe grog bop. with its sickening femes of
alcohol, is a far leas desirable or respectable place fur
a Hawaiian to be in tban tbe clean stable where one
of tbe speakers for the bill informs us be was com
pelled to go secretly and drink tbe tabued liquor.
Look at the consequences of liquor drinking in in
stances which almost every one can bring to iniud,
and then tell me where is tbe respectability cf tbe
practice, or where the coveted bonor and dignity
that the law deprives os of ! Let any young man
acquire the habit, and see how soon bis tendencies
are all downward.
Something has been said to tbe effect tbat ao such
restrictive law exists in other countries There is
however the Maine law, which is entirely prohibi
tive, and is declared to be a great blessing to tbat
state. But we cannot, to tbe matter of tbe use of
liquor, comparrour race with those of Europe and
America, where for centuries tbe people base been
accustomed to the use cf wine, beer and spirits.
And. even there; the total abstinence societies are
active, and constantly increasing in numbers and
influence. Are the Tabitians or tbe Maoris of New
Zealand any better off than Hawaiians because of
their freedom to buy liqoor? ' On the contrary it is
the fact that socially, pecuniarily, and in all that
pertains to civilisation, tbey are much tbe inferiors
of tbe Hawaiians. And I maintain tbat this is owing
to our superior laws, imperfectly as tbey are some
times executed. But take off this restriction, and
what will become of law and order ? Von would
have to largely increase the appropriation for police,
and for the suppression of offenses Private distilla
tion, which now by extreme exertion we keep within
bounds, would be rife all over the land. We speak
with regret of our public debt; repeal this law and
our necessities will soon become such tbat we shall
be more in debt tban ever, both privately and pub
licly. Every member of this Assembly will agree with
me that the great objects tbat interest us here,
objects which we consider as paramount In impor
tanceare the education of tbe rising generation
and tbe preservation and Increase of the nation.
What oan be imagined more totally of aa apposite
character to these than the proposition to give tbe
people free rum ! Is this what you wish to put be
fore your children the liberty to destroy them
selves 7 I entreat you to pause and consider well
before you vote on this subject. For the peace and
happiness of oar race, in tbe name erf Christianity

Tbe non. Godfrey Rhodes said :
Mr. Chairman : From whatever point of view,
whether from reason, religion, expediency or legal
ity, I consider this law (tbe 4th cbapter cf tbe Penal
Code) equally vicious and untenable, and answera
ble for tbe decrease cf tbe Hawaiian race more tban
any other law or cause, with one exception that I
know of. There ia no occasion for me to notice tbe
religions objection, aa that baa already been well
done by more than one of the membera of tbe house;
but looking at It from what might be called tbe rea
sonable point of view every argument that saggests
itself to my mind is for a repeal or modification of
the law. It ia proclaimed to be a dead letter; scarce
ly a newspaper appears that does not speak of tbe
drunkenness amongst tbe people. On holidays,
when there are many people in tbe streets, it is no
torious that there ia much moredrunkenuree than at
other times; in fact tbat tbe natives can get what
ever they want, and although now and then some
unfortunate is taken and heavily oed, tbe law ia
systematically aet at caught It ia aaid that okole
bao can be bought on any part of tbe lalanda at fifty
cents per bottle, more especially Lave I beard of it
on this island, Kauai, and Maui, and then aa to
the working of thia law, I would relate a atory of a
ease to which I was a witness. A native mao who
had been in my employ, was arrested on the charge
of selling spirits without a license and flnedr hun
dred dullart; a poor but good and Industrious crea
ture, wbo earned bis five dollars a week, but beyond
tbat I suppose scarcely owned five hundred centa.
He aaid to me at the time that thia law wae murder
(pepehi kanaka). I fully agreed with him. He ap
pealed. I applied on hia aocount to tbe Attorney
General, but met with no favorable reply. I was
afterwards notified from tbe Police Court that if be
would plead guilty to the charge a modification af
tbe sentence would be made. He did ao, and was
fined by tbe police magistrate one bondred dollars,
or two bondred days imprisonment as aa alternative.
Had be gone to prison, what would have become cf
hia wife Why hia borne would bave been trek an
up, and she would bav gone on the streets. He
kad friends who paid his fine which be is now work
ing out and paying by weekly installments. Had be
been fined five dollars or Bomwbing near tbat sum,
be would in my opinion bave been properly and
sufficiently punished; but five baudred or even one
hundred dollare fine inflicted on such a person for
such-an offence, even if be had committed it .before,
was something frightful. .
' Thia ia the working cf tbat law; and I find by re
ferring to the report cf tbe Minister of Finance tba
more than 948,000 cr l-22d fart cf tbe whole rev.
enne ia thus wrong from tbe sweat and aufleripga ef
tbe people. It was proved by tbe testimony f tht
one witness against him also a native and pro trea
ted for the earne offence that b bad tweelved
twenty-five cents fur furnishing tbe spirit. wk4cb be
told bis employer was for a Chinaman. Wby shoatd
such a law, followed by such results, remain on tbe
statute bock ? It is clearly a failure and should be
replaced by aomeibiog totally diflerent.
During tbe debate tbe judgee of the Supreme
Court bave been mentioned; about them I remark,
that with all respact to them as gentlemen I have no
faith In them as politicians. Tbey are politieians,
and keen ones, and I do net require them cr any one
else to teach me tbe true meaning of my mother
tongue. What confidence can we place io them if
we oelicve the. Minister cf Foreign Relations, wbo
informed tbe Assembly tbat by their advice be and
his colleagues had advised tbe King to commit an
aet Which was a violation cf tbe Constitution Bat
I hope to speak more fully on thia subject at another

asked the French Commissioner to furnish me with
statistics from Tahiti, where the natirea are allowed

to do; but by acme mischance I bave never receive-1
them. Still, I bave heard from other sources that
the system practiced in tbat island we productive of

The Hon. Mr. Preston (Labaina) spoke as follows:

believe the necessary proceedings were CuOia euced

since tbat time two bontet, In which be la Interest

bave beea prosecuted three times, but no one baa
heard of their licensee and bonda being forlelted.
Tbe last caao which I conducted lor the govern
ment was against a bouse In wblth one of the

waa taken away and the bond forfeited. Lint tbe
very next afternoon I went Into lb Hawaiian
Hotel, and there I aaw drinking at tbe bar one of
tbe ramn natives for eupplylnst whom, the proceed

, Again, a short time ago tbe person wbe llcenae

aoked for a diink lor a half white, wbo waa in bit

"Ob. I've nothing to do with It. It's the Govern

Again. I see lo tbe Iteport of the Uioltler of

And now, Mr, Chairman, let us pat the question

Then let tie look at Sec. 432 t,t lb Civil Ood,
