its efficiency than St. Alban's College, under the

The examination of the scholars which took
place Friday last before a number of their parents
and of friends of the college, pave eminent proof
of the thoroughness with which every study had
been taught and of the intelligent understanding
of every subject brought forward on the part of
When at a general examination questions ara
put and receive well worded answers, taken ver
bally from the reader, it will to a casual observer
be satisfactory enough; but when a subject of study
is handled iu the manner it was at the late exami
nation at St. Alban's College, it proves not a me
chanical learning but an intelligent understanding
of the subject by the scholar; in fact, acquired
practical knowledge which goes through life, and
which is education in the true sense of the word.

The qae.tion now Is, how a'l the defteienry he
xJe op. Ya will obeiv hy the fUn that I have
i laiJ tet.re you, that the Government proposes to la-
crease the tax on real anl personal jn.perty voe half
, ot one er cent, but t. exetuf-t frw taxation property
ot each kind tJ the value of one hundred dollars, to
: deduct frui the rsal and irol roperty of

j portance t thetu. but tbi aui ant froia the ralua

' value on real aod j ert-tal t perty, w i.l, with care
1 ful and intelligent a.e-ftuei.t. aid to our tevenue
) s oniethinz like J5S.C00.
It has been aid in this h ue and e!ewhere, that
the p'anter and j.la titaiii ti it. lerel are t-nly to te
benenttel by the treaty This ia not the fact, and
will n t be the ei-e. I J-i admit however than the
planter will be directly benefitted, and every Haw
aiian and foreigner wit bio the Kingdom, will le
I indirectly benefitted it' they seek to be so, r I toiht
ay, permit IheuiJtlvej to beticutlel.
A the plantation interest will derive such lare
advantage under the treaty, and I mean rice at well
a sugar, the government, uuder the circumstance,
think it reasonable and fair they should specially
contribute in ome way toward the revenues, and
therefore propj.e a scheme of tag or plantation
licetii-e that ui'uht be made to Yield upward wf
$.10,000 and could be collected at ne expense.
The waiter cf stamp i alio worthy of considera
tion. As the law now stand, a document to be re
corded it only the value of one dollar require a one
dollar stamp, a docuineut of $100,000 ia value Deed
n more. The government are of the (piuion a new
law huld be passed which will increase the reve
nue, and work no hardship to the people, by adding
a one dollar stamp t every flOOO, ur part thereof,
over $1000, and also amend, or revise the law in re
gard to rtawpt generally.
The granting of separate license for the a'e of
drug and medicine i alio contemplated. While it
will add something to our revenue, it will alio guard,
and protect tbi kind cf buines ; and a a number
of petition are before the lloue ta iurrease the ccst
of liceutcs, I would recommend the Houe to give the
matter the consideration it deserves, and I e no rea
son why banking licence bould not be indued.
It i proposed to revive and increase the tariff on
certain article of mcrchandine. While the duties are
to be removed on uiany of the uecessariv of life, it it
proposed to increase the duties ou luxuries. The
plan proposed will how a gaiu to the revenue from
the articles named of something like $57,000, and
a net gain of say nearly $100.00(1 on taxes, duties,
It may be a.ked, what reason the government
have to offer, for wishing to iucrease the revenue to
thic extent. My answer to that would be tbis
should the convention of reciprocity go into effect at
an early day, a we all hope it may, we will lose the
duty on import to the amount of $('.0,000 at least,
the firtt year. We cannot put an increased tariff in
operation inside of one year, and if thi Assembly de
sire to appropriate money to procure a new steamer,
or aid to a scheme for repopulation, or other matter,
it will be nec!.ary for the government to borrow, to
meet such outlays, a well as to pay the bonds that
will become due thi fiscal period.
After that, the government are of the opinion that
there would be do further need of borrowing, but on
the contrary, it would be prepared to meet the in
debtedness as it becomes due, provided the plan pre
pared, or some other one, that will increase the reve
nue to the same extent, were adopted. The plan
proposed, if carried out, would furnish revenue suf
ficient to meet the ordinary expenditures of the
government, and afford liberal sum to be expended
in the construction of road, bridges and other im
provement and repair of wharves, landing, te., and
to meet the indebtedness of the government as it be
comes due, I believe, Mr. I'resideut, in the good old
adage " make hay while theiun thine." The treaty
of reciprocity i for seven year, and may, or may
not, be continued beyond that time. 1 feel certain
tbi country will have no cause to seek it abrogation.
But, Mr. President, we must not overlook the fact,
that the United State doe not agree to keep the
present duty on (ugar, or any duty at all, and we
have reason for believing a few year will see their
tariff modified, especially so on sugar. It may be
many years before that country i in a position to
remove the dutie altogether, but every modification
will to some extent lessen the price of our sugars.
We have no mora. right to expect the United State to
keep up a high duty on sugar to continue a treaty
with u, than we have for believing that England
would put on a duty on sugar in order to make a
like treaty with u.
Therefore, Mr. President, it is our duty to the
country to prepare for our future a well a our im
mediate want; let u not object to a moderate tax,
direct and indirect, that the government bond and
interest thereon, may be a promptly met in the fu
ture as they have been in the past. The government
indebtedne at the end of the last fiscal period wa
$159,000 with $90,000 cah on band, which ha in
creased $20,000 since that time. So, if tha Legisla
ture does not choose to enter into any extraordinary
expenditure, inch a purchasing a (learner, repopula
tion, etc., the government need not borrow another
dollar, and will be prepared to meet the $90,000 of
bond coming due thi fiscal period, and every other
bond and interest a it may become due. Tbis can
not be done, however, without aa inorease in oar
revenue. The plan proposed i a reasonable one,
and if adot.ted, we need have no fear for the future.

ter are begining to prevail. There have been several
cases of sore-throat in town, in some cases compli
cated with exanthtm or eruption; but as yet there
has been no scarlatina or diphtheria, as has been cur
rently reported, Jit would behoove everyone at
present, to pay early attention to any throat trouble,
especially among children, as timely care may pre
vent what medicine may not be able to cure. We
are informed by a physician, that diseases have a
remarkably downward tendency at the present time

Hitchcock has arranged the various articles sent

Saturday last by a friendly match game, on the
plains, between the seemingly invincible Athletes,
and the new formed Star Club. The day was a
.pleasant one, and as the afternoon drew on the
company of spectators grew large, and manifested
a lively interest in the healthful sport. Play was
called at 3.30. with the Athletes at the bat. and lor
the first half of the game the scoring was kept low
on both sides, but on the fifth inning the weakness
of the new club, through maimed fingers and want
of practice together, became quite apparent, for
the Athletes in this inning scored eight runs, which
made it easy sailing to the close. An accident oc
curred to one of the Stars on their seventh inning
wherein Willie Pogue severely sprained his left
hankie in running to third base. Play yas qatural-
ly interrupted lor ft tiiue, and the fallen Star as
sisted to the tent, after which, by mutual agree
ment, the game was resumed with F. Macfarlaae
as substitute. The match throughout was watched
with ip" st, and considering the condition ot the

His Ex. J. M. Kapena presented the following
Iiesolved That the Minister of Finance be
requested to lay before tbis Assembly, a statement
of the plan proposed by the Government to make
good tho deficiency of revenue consequent upon
tbe passage of the Reciprocity Treaty. Carried.
Thereupon His. Ex. the Minister of Finance
presented the plan," prefaced by the following
Mr. President : The plan which I place before
the house is not in the shape of a resolution, or in
the form of an act, but is simply information to tbe
house, as to the views anil ideas the Government :
htve f-.r supplying the deficiency in the revenue?, j
anticipated upon giving effect to the convention of j
reciprocity with the United State, as well as to in-
crease the revenue generally. j
I a in well aware, Mr. President, of the difficulty in j
placing this plan or any plan before thi Legislature, I
or any Legislature, or the country, that would meet j
wun general lavor at crn. lured taxation U not
popular, and never can be made so. Put I have met
a large number of people and convened with tbeui,
who had no objection to their neighbors being taxed ;
only let them alone. In fact, Mr. President, I am
not aware of any kind of expenses that are very
popular with tbe masses of the people.
The probable deficiency to oar revenues by tbe !
treaty on duties, will bo something like t'iO.Cul) per
annum. This estimate is tased oa the import of i
1S72, 1S7:1, 1S74 ami 1S75 ; but it must be under- j
stood that the three first named years, tbe value of I
our chief article of export, sugar, wai extremely low, j
and it is a' well understood fact, that a country like
ours, cannut well import wore than it export. An !
iccreased value to our exports will doubtless increase I
the value of our imports, and largely, no doubt, from i
the United S'.ates. of the article? admitted fre under i
the treaty. Will this deficiency in our revenues be a !
l.-ss to the country ? I submit, Mr. President, thct it j
will not. It will be a 1 is.-.f revenue,, but not a lo-- '
to the couDtry. The United .Suu .imply ask
market for -rt;iin dr-ioles, they do not eek to p
It is proposed to tupply the anticipated deficiency
by increasing the tax on real and personal property,
and by a general revision of our system of tamp and
licenses, creating license for tbe manufacture of
(ugar and rice.
Ihe probable deficiency i estimated upon the busi
ness of tbe Custom Home for tbe year 1872, 1873,
1874, and 1873, and may be put down at $00,000 a
In the matter of taxation of re.il and peronal
property it is proposed to exempt from taxation prop
erty of each kind to the value of one hundred dollar.
Thi exemption, bated upon tbe assessment table of
1S75, will reduce tbe taxable value of real and per
sonal property to $11, 720, 000. An' increase of one

of Ihe Tact that be waa not duly appointed by the

must be laid against President Li rant, or aome
member or members of tha executive, fix,, la not
honestly replying to the requtal of tha Saiuoan
people for a protectorate. Yea or JN'ay. It ap
peals to ua now, that the people were purposely
left without a definite reply, in order to lurturr the
interest of a swindling speculation. Papeia watch
have recently come lo light aeems to show that
bribery bat been resorted lo In order lo gain for
Col. SUenberger bis quasi-official poaitlon. There
is oue name In particular conneciea wuu iu
scheme which is just now notorious lo the btatr j
for that klod of thing.
4. When tbe Samoan "Constitution" was ea- y
tabllshed, and Col. Stienberger became "Prince "
and virtually ruler, wa acquiesced In wbat wa i
could not have prevented, bad such been our da- j
sire: and what, moreover, wo bad not then audi- .,
clent reaaout for attempting to prevent. Wa aided - '
as lar as we could In translating Ac, for the gov '
eminent, and hoped our moral Influence would
help to restrain the Priuca" from any violent de-
narture from right in his publio action. We also '
hoped that tha United Stales government, aud pub'
lie opinion in America would exert a salutary iu
tine uce. over bim.
5 We. however, soon found we ware very much
mistaken in these hopes. When Col. bteiuberger
thought himself firmly settled in bit pretuleinhlo,
be, by bis licentiousness, disgusted every right
minded Individual, whether native or foreign re
sident, lij bis systematic lying, and want of ail
tirincinle. be made it ImDossibla for ua to ban
anything to do with bim in bla private capacity,
and made us wisu to have as mile counectiuu wits
him as possible, In bla publio position as virtu
C. At length wa felt tha tuoat serious alarm! ,
we became mora and mora convinced that
Stcinberger was not responsible to tha Unit
States government, and that tbe only law wh
regulated bis conduct either publio or pilvale ' ,
waa bis own will and bis lust. Wa tberalore, frit i
it to be our duty to write and Inform tha Unlit-
States government of tbe state of things In Samoa,
and to ask s bother Col. Stcinberger was a properly,!
uccredUed agent of tbe OTcrtUMul. In ouu let ter
to Mr. Fish wa expreaaed ur conviction that '
the Samoa people bad received Col. Stelnberger aa
a bonaJUtt representative of the government, and
that, but lor their belief that be waa such, tbe
would never lave received bim. Wa asked the
government to Inform tha people It wbat capacity I
Col. Steinberg came bere; and, If be were not ;
tbe agent of the government, but the agent of a' '
speculating company, to prevent tbe Bamoana from",
being made victims of a swindling speculation
under cover of tha United States flag.
Wa have not yet received a reply to our latter.
Dut late events, and tba discovery of documents,
leave no room for doubt at to bow and why Col.
Steinberger came here. . K

the marine or ll. U. hi. ti. JJarracouta leading to
loss of life on both aides, and serious complication
with Great JJritain. One half of Samoa aaa risen
against tbe Steinberger faction, and I only wall
log tbe arrival of the Urltisb Commodore to try and
turn that faction out of the government. If any
now are against tbe action of tha remnant cf the
government " (tba name they give themselves) but
are afraid, because at present tbey bavatha power
on their aide,
"8. When, the other day, the U. S.S. Tuscarota
arrived, we hoped a aettlement of present difficul
ties between tba Eamoan themselves would b
arrived at, by a statement of tha Captain's to tha
effect that Col. Steinberger waa nH aa egeet of
tbe United States government, aud that La waa not
acting in tbat capacity in wbat ba did In Samoa.
Capt. Millan met lb "remna&t of the govern

was asked him. Put. la li reply, , ;,7rVei if,
and so tbe people alill remain without an tbclai

will be th$ consequence. 11 it were not for tbe pre
