Mr. Gibson eaid that such a commission would
not requ;re any special appropriation, as any
necessary 0Ufjaj could be obtained from the large
appropriation for immigration. The character of
our uovenment required that we should be prop

The Minister of Foreign Affairs replied that
rCn na( received remonstrances
and admonitions from Foreign Governments in
respect to malpractices in Micronesia. Serious
complaints had been made against the Hawaiian
agent, Mr. Freeman.
Mr. Gibson said that this Government had
about 20 years ago, sent a Commissioner, Mr.
at. tUJian, to Central Poly neeia. He drafted the
lonsctution of Upolu for Samoa. Had his diplo
n,atl initiative been sustained our influences
would be vastly greater now in Polynesia.

. A valuable part of the report on this subject
incIud,DZ tbe eloquent speech of the Minister of
the Interior, as also that of Mr. Rhodes, has been
meanly abstracted from our office before being set
The second section of the bill was read.
The Attorney General said, if ever be felt re
gret at giving a vote, it was the one he gave
against this bill. He knew the difficulties we
were laboring under for want of females. If
there was a chance of thi bill being pat into
bape, be would vote for it. It is odw'm
heV vswaArarioii.'uxl ..n.-r. vr entourage it
without females. He would ask the Honorable
member to withdraw the bill.
Mr. Gibson seconded the Attorney General,
lie said, a very strong and earnest desire will be
lost, if some such bill is not passed by this As
sembly. He would be glad if the Attorney Gen
eral, with the Hon. Noble, and others, would
frame another bill. Many countries have bad to
deal with the question that is now before us.
The bill is directed against the Chinese race. In
the Phillipine Islands, after long experience, they
imposed large capitation and other taxes to pre
vent this large male immigration. The Govern
ment of the Netherlands had a very grave expe
rience in consequence of the large number of
Chinese that went to Japan. In Batavia, there
were 'some 40,000. It resulted in a most dread
ful massacre. The soldiers looked on and saw
them maseacreed until there were only a few
thousand left to flee. They passed restrictions
that prevented them remaining more than three
years, and imposed heavy taxes. It is
Detter tor us to consider what affects our own in
With all earnest approval of the objects
of the bill, he still doubted its practicability.
The Minister ef the Interior said he would
rather see a bonus paid to men whs brought wo
men, than a capitation tax imposed. There is no
country that needs labor more than we do, and
there is no place where a man can come with
such prospects. If 10,000 men were brought it
would not interfere with one in the Kingdom.
The comparison between Queensland and this
country is not fair. There they crowd out their
own people ; we are suffering for the want of
people and labor. Where was he to get men to
carry out the projected works. He could not get
10 men to-day, if he wanted them. He regretted
that the bill is not differently framed. Agents
who had tried, could not get a single man to
come from Sao rrancisco. II we increase the
immigration of South Sea Islanders and Portu
guese, it will make so much the lees demand for
Chinese. He remembered the day in California
when a woman was a curiosity. The Board of
Immigration will bring women. In a few years
the proportion of women to men will be changed.
He would support a bill that would not cause us
to put a check on immigration.
Mr. Rhodes said, as he did it for the good of
people, he would ask that the bill be withdrawn,
in order that another bill may be substituted.

REPORTS OF COMMITTEES.
The Special Committee appointed to report on
schools recommended an expenditure of $5000
for reboots in the English language. Report re
ceived, to be considered with Appropriation Bill.
The Attorney General reported the printing of
Baker's Liquor Bill.
That Commissioners of Crown Lands be re-
J nested to eend a report to this House and be
urniehed with a list of all Crown Lands.
The Attorney General said if this resolution
passed, nothiog can become of it. Commis
sioners of Crown Lands are not responsible to
this House. If tle House deMred the informa
tion the proper course would be to pass a reso-
lution asking Mis Majesty to furnish the inform
ation, and n carried, he would no doubt take the
advice of his Ministers. He would therefore
support the motion to indefinitely po6tpono the
resolution. Indefinitely pcftj.ned by 20 to 15.

The following gentlemen were appointed on
the committee : Messrs. Gibson, Rhodes, Pres
ton, Hanuna, Kaulukou, Pilipo and the Minis

Tne Minister ot the Interior said the bill he
had to bring forward was much the tame as this.
Whereas, there are two resolutions now on
the table referring to lepers, reeolved that they
be made the order of the day lor Thursday next.
The Minister of the Interior said in reference
to the report on these resolutions, that the com
plaints made are so frivolous they are unworthy
of consideration. When the matter came up
with the Appropriation Bill, be would be pre
pared to report.
The motion was carried.

It was eel for Friday.
The Minister of the Interior read for the first

Mr. Bishop said he was unwilling to give the
chance of this section passing without remarks.
It is a serious matter to license the sale of wines
for the ase of everybody. It would be quite im
possible whether the wine sold had 27 9 of al
cohol in it or more. No man thinks of drinking
spirits without an equal amount of water, and
then it is not stronger than wine. A few glasses
of wine containing 27 of alcohol will produce
intoxication. It is idle to talk about those who
drink a little are not killed. Some men go
through life drank every day, yet no man will
deny that intemperance is a ein, one of the great
evils of the world against which good men are
constantly fighting. Will anyone contend that if
this law passes it will ao any gooa i xie contenu-
ed that it is a protection to the weak to have
spirits kept out of their sight. A great many

not afford to experiment with Hawaiians in the
matter of strong drink. If it casts a life it costs
too much. If Hawaiiana wish to perpetuate they
must not drink. There never was anytbmg done
by Hawaiiana that gave them greater credit than
putting this taba on liquors. It was an act that
astonished the civilixed world. It is splendid to
see men having the power in their own bands,
deny themselves. It waa one of the principal
things that led to the acknowlegment oi our in
dependence. Io many things the Hawaiian
Lave made progress, but in some things they have
not improved. We miss the characters of Chiefs
that used to lead the people and set an example,
that it would be well if young people would fol
low. In the State of Maine the restrictive law
had been in force for more than 20 years, and the
people of that State have found the advantage of
it. It has Helped tnem to enjoy tneir goais anu
lessen their taxes. He concluded by saying that
if prohibited entirely be would be in lavor of it; he
would not regret the lost of revenue, because he
believed it would be made up in other wavs. He
hoped the act would not pass.
Mr. Castle supported the views of the previous

bill. He acknowledged that he bad been labor

REPORTS OF COMMITTEES.
The Special Committee to whom was referred
the item of $100,000 for a patent slip, report
having carefully considered specifications and es
timates in the Interior omce, and Having spent
considerable time in acquiring information from
men practically acquainted with shipbuilding
and repairing. Some of the latter do not appear
to be favorably imprestea witn tne project,
rjrincinallv on account of the cost and difficulty
of Coding a favorable site, but they advance no
other reason why it should not be carried out.
Taking into consideration the increase in the
revenue, and according to the evidence that the
railway or Blip can be built, without borrowing
money or r.us..g any unnecessary curtailment of
appropriations for other measures,' the necessity
for providing for the repairs of steam vessels
now increasing in number, which have become
indispensable to the community, and which can
not be hove down like sailing vessels, and for ex
amining and repairing vessels of any description
that may arrive in Hawaiian waters requiring
such examination and repairs. The committee
come to the conclussion that the item of $100,
000 for said slip or railway should be passed by
the Assembly, subject, however to the condition
that before cummencinz operations, a favorable
report of a competent and respectable engineer
that a suitable site can be found for its location
be obtained, subject also to the condition to be
strictly observed bv the Minister that the cost is
not to exceed the appropriation.
Signed, G. Rhodes, S. G. Wilder, J. Nawahi,
J. L. Kaulukon and . M. Gibson.
Mr S. V . Kaai moved that the report be in
Mr. Rhodes said he did not think the report
required much to be said io its support. No
doubt the Hon. member who was opposed to it
knew more about marine railways than the com
mittee, but be thought be knew a little about
it. The fact of there being so many ibland
steamers, and the enterprise of gentlemen who
bring them here should have our consideration.
If anything happened to these steamers they can
not bo hove down. A vessel drawing 24ft. can
enter the harbor, and that is as large a class of
vessel as we may expect, if a large ocean steam
er came here deeply laden, she could always dis
cbarge her cargo outside and then come inside.
There is 60 much capital invested in steamers and
vessels, that it behoves us to have some means of
repairing them. Is the businese of the place to
stop while they are sent to California? There
would not be only a loss t the owner, but the
business of the place would suffer. The great
drawback, the committee considered, would be
the cobt of lumber, but the Minister of the In
terior assures us the cost will be less than the es
timates given, and the committee have every
reason to confide in him. The money would be
well expended if a proper site is found
and the cost is kept within the appropriation.
Mr. Gibson said he supported the item of
$100,000 for a Marine Railway for the port of
Honolulu. This is probably one. of those enter
prises of internal improvement undertaken by
Government, which may not, and are not always
expected to return a direct remuneration for the
outlay ; but indirectly they benefit the country,
i by increase of facilities for the development of
j commerce. But this may be a direct paying en
j terphse, at least sufficient to give a t-uiall rate
: of interest on the outlay. He had been informed
that in New York City there are six different
, docks or structures for the building or repair of
; ships, and that notwithstanding the competition,
which so many enterprises of the same kind
i would give rise to, yet the charges wero $1.50 a
ton or $1,500 for a thousand ton ship, first day
that she was placed in dock, and this charge was
i reduced to one dollar a ton for subsequent days.
But be had been assured by the Minister, and he
fully understood that it was not the purpose of
; the government, in case a marine railway or dock
' was provided for, to undertake the building or
. repair of ships, but to let out the structure at a
moderate charge to the ship carpenters of the
; country. Honorable members have said that not
i enough ships come to require this enterprise at
; this time, but he was well assured that many
I vessels that were traversing our ocean in quest of
! an opportunity tJ repair, had to pass by our port
i and to struggle on till they reached San Francis
j co, or other port provided with proper facilities.
' You must also bear in mind that time, or dis
I patch, is often the most important question in
j the repair of a ship with a valuable cargo. To
' heave down may be a more economical plan to re
: pair a vessel sometimes, but this will require
many days, whereas, a ship once started on the
j ways can be hauled up at the rate of about four
: leet a minute, and in twenty-four hours she
could be overhauled and returned to the water.
And steamships with heavy machinery in them
: caunot be hove down. He begged the House to
consider that we had a first class port according
to the provisions of nature, but it was not yet
first class in accordance with the requirements of
commerce. Tahiti was ahead of us in this re
spect, as she had a dock for the lepair of vessels.
But if there was no immediate occasion for such
a structure, we must look to the future, and pre
pare in time. We cannot doubt that we are
soon to see the accomplishment of the two great
enterprises that are to affect us so immensely,
the opening of a ship canal acroes the Isthmus of
Darien, and the connection of this Archipelcgo
by cable with the rest of the world. Then we
must meet the requirements of our position. We
must prepare our port to be the great entrepot,
and maritime rendezvous, which would seem her
destiny, and for which nature has made such am
ple provision. Report adopted.
Mr. Pilipo, Chairman of the Committee on
Miscellaneous Subjects made a lengthy report on
miscellaneous appropriations. Tabled, to be con
sidered with the Appropriation Bill.
The Select Committee appointed to report on
the petition of Mr. Kunuiakea, recommended that
the Minister of the Interior be requested to grant
royal patent to Mr. Kunukoa, and that the rest
of the petition be not considered.
Mr. Itobt. Wilcox, moved that the report be
received and referred to the Minister of the In
terior and his colleagues.
The Minister of the Interior eaid the evil rested
with a former administration, in the fact of there
being no proper record kept in the land office.
He could not, and would not admit any derilec
tion of Government in selling this land. Every
member most admit that two royal patents can
not be issued for one piece of land, lie agreed
with the member for Koolaopoko that the matter
be referred to the Minister ot the Interior and
Mr. Rhodes seconded the motion.
The Minister of the Interior eaid when the
man made bis claim he showed no letters that
held that be had applied for royal patent ;
since then he bad done so. If left to the Minis
try tbey will settle with this man justly.
The Attorney General eaid, that the Govern
ment is able to deal with this matter without
the intervention of the House. If the report is
adopted it will not assist the petitioner one bit.
If the matter is left with the Cabinet it will be
properly and fairly dealt with, and if the peti
tioners are not then satibfied, tbey have their ap
peal to the Supreme Court.
The motion to accept the report and refer it to
the Minister of the Interior and bis colleagues
Mr. Kaulukou presented the minority report
on the police items in the Appropriation Bill. It
differed from the majority report in the item for
" Police of Oahu,' and suggested the amount be
increased to $70,000. Tabled, to be considered
with report and bill.
That as leprosy continues to spread, this As
sembly invite Mrs. Dr. Myers to take charge and
givo medical treatment to lepers.
Mr. Nawahi said that this lady bad been prac
ticing in San Francisco, and she is now in Hono
lulu. She has expressed that she can cure the
disease, and with permission of the Board of
Health she wishes to show ber 6kill before prac
ticing. The Minister of the Interior said that no li
cense was necessary. If she wishes to experi
ment she can do so, and if she cures a single case
of leprosy she shall be paid a larger sum than
she ever hoped to receive.
air. Kaulukou said that in instances where
leprosy has been cured, the doctors say it
was not leprosy. People have been locked up
for practicing without a license.
The Minister of the Interior eaid be would
place three patients in the hospital for her to
cure and when she has cured those she will have
100 more to cure and the Board of Health will
not interfere in any way.
The Attorney General moved a suspension of
the rules in order that he be allowed to read a
bill to regulate the sale of liquors a second time.

item fur police of Oahu, said he would cordially
support it if it was to benefit the native police.
but he considered SyU a month too much for the
foreigners. He was in the habit of passing the
police station and invariably saw a foreign po
liceman in. an arm chAir. One ho knew to be
sickly, Mc. Keague by ' name, nhva. he thought
was not competent to arrest an old sick hen Yt ha
were sent to do it. These fellows who have easy
chairs and an easy time of it should not, in his
opinion, be so well paid as the native police who
do all the work.
The next items that had been reported on were
school appropriations. They passed as follows :

Mr. Keau moved that the Industrial school

Mr. Bishop explained the advantages of the
school, and its object. He also made praise
worthy remarks on the way in which it is con
ducted. The item passed at $10,500, an increese of

ORDER OF THE DAT.
Third reading of an Act to amend Section 1000, of
the Civil Code. Passed.
Au Act relating to the reconstruction of the Board
of Health waa read for second time.
Mr. Gibson, the introducer of the bill, moved that
it be engrossed. He said the minority report states
tbat there is no reason for the re -construction of the
Board of Health. He would endeavor to give those
reasons. In most cities or towns doctors form
part of the Board of Health, bat at the same time
there are Municipal Governments who control the
Boards. And a Board of Health in those cities, does
not, as in Honolulu, constitute the sole body to dis
charge any municipal sanction. The city of New
York is cited by the Minority Report against the bill
under consideration, as an illustration of a Board of
Health made up largely of doctors, and he admitted
He had from time to time been a resident of that
great city, and had relatives there, and in former
times he had taken part in its business and its poli
tics. He had been familiar with its city government,
and he bad kuown a body of men elected to legislate
for all the interests of the city, for its building, and
street-making, and sanitary improvements, with not
a doctor among them, they as a city government
having control of every provision made for their
Board of Health. And yet it was not felt that there
was any reflection upon the medical proiession, oe-
cauee not one of their members was chosen to legis
late upon and control the sanitary disbursements of
the city, any more than it should be regarded here,
as a reflection on the medical profession, because a
doctor has not been chosen among the representatives
of the people. It is a common practice in the organ
ization of government, throughout the civilized world
that the business and disbursements or a country are
placed in the hands of laymen," or non profes
sional men, sufficiently intelligent to employ the
best professional talent for whatever duty required,
whether educational, legal, medical, military or
naval. The military and naval establishments of the
United States, Great Britain, and other countries,
are usually placed in charge of well informed men,
who howevei have never been trained to tne proies-
m T t
sion or military or naval wariare. ne nave
an illustration in point, in the composition of
our Board of Education. Each member is an ordi
nary business man; not one is a professional in
structor, and yet he felt assured that we will not
appear " ridiculous in the eyes of the world be
cause tne professional educational element is uui
represented on that Board. It may be said, bow-
ever, tbat the proteesionai educational man is uui
excluded by law ; and he said tbat if the Board
had been partly composed of teachers, who for
twenty years bad maintained an exclusive system of
instruction, had not carried out any reforms in the
education of youth, nor published a single work of
instruction, but had merely adhered to the text
books in which they were taught, there would now
be a cry for a law to exclude the professional
teachers, and place the Board in the hands of in
telligent business men, and heads of families, ae
voted to general education. Contrast the history of
our two Boards, Education and Health. The former
composed of laymen entirely, and the latter con
trolled by. professionals. The tormer nas oy lis en-
ightened action brought the education oi tne coun
try to a point that challenges the admiration of all
intelligent observers ; it has reduced the illiterate to
an insignificant fraction of the people about 7 in
1,000; it has by an inspecting vigilance visited not
only every hamlet, but every house in these islands
with educational influences; they nave oum iui
new schools, at a cost of 868,696, and published
school books which cost $20,961, and have pur
chased text-books at a cost of $34,129. But, Mr.
President, what are the triumphs and monuments
of our Board ot Health T Shall I point to the mul
titude of burial mounds that dot and disfigure these
fair Islands? Shall I expose to view the unwhole
some condition of the city of Honolulu; the close.
damp yards, foul with slop and garbage, tne noxious
nrivies. and other disease breeders oi tne capital i
Shall I take you to the decaying grass huts, or other
ill-constructed dwellings of the poor people of the
Islands, and show the damp and mould, and bad
ventilation of disease-breeding lodgiog9, never vis
ited by a physician or agent of the Board of Health?
Shall I cite the report of the agent of this very
Board, tbat " fifty-eight per cent, of all deaths of
Hawaiians reported, are entirely unattended during
sickness by any physician !" and that he thinks it
fair to presume that 25 per cent of those dying
unattended mis have been saved by medical
attendance as ao evidence of the value of pro
fessional enterprise, fidelity and skill in control of a
Board of Health! Can we present to the philan
thropists of the world some monument of hygiene,
some instruction on health, some book or tract, as a
work of love in behalf of poor, sick, dying Hawai
ian people, produced during the past twenty years
by a faithful, humane, professional Board of Health?
Some instructions mentioned in the minority report,
but these bad been anticipated by the publications
of a member of this Assembly. What can we point
to? What can we show? What can we present in
behalf of this Board ? Some may say tbat the lepers
of Molokai have been more abundantly cared for;
and that supplies for their food and comfort, have
been advanced from an expenditure of $57,534.33
in 1878 to $87,580.65 in 1880 for about the same
number of patients. Bat this increase of supplies
was the work or instigation of an opposition, and
originating with the representatives of the people,
and mast not be in the. least credited to the over
sight, or humanity of the Board of Health. This
Board had in times past allowed poor lepers to pinch
along with a half allowance of food, to live in un
wholesome huts without lights, to have no soap for
cleauliness, no clean rags for sores; and on dying, to
be liable to have their uncoffined corpses rooted out
or shallow graves by wandering bogs, as proven by
tesiimony, till the representatives of the people
raised an outcry, visited the lepers in their living
grave at Kalawao; and urged and obtained the addi
tional food and comforts, needed by tbe sunerers
No sir there is no triumph, or honorary monumeot
for tbe Board on Molokai. There is no voice of
praise, nor sign of honor for this Board in all this
broad Archipelago. There is no song of thankfulness
in the hearts of the people for any mission of bodily
healing. And yet there should have been. What
opportunity for a true physician, representing tbe
autboriiy of tbe Government, and backed with etnol
ument and patronage duriag tbe past twenty years
unat opportunities witb so docile and teainable a
people, to bae taught the laws of health, to have
inculcated tbe paramount virtue of chastity, to have
devised ways and means to train nurss for the care
of the sick and the little ones, to have made house
holds healthful, and to have made a glorious mark
in promoting through wisely devised, and energetic
ally carried out measures for sanitary improvements,
tbe increase of tbe people!
With such opportunities a roan could have visit
ed every poor dwelling in tbe Archipelago to look
into its needs for an improved sanitary condition.
He could have made instruction, in respect to tbe
laws of heath, as plain to tbe Hawaiian as it is to
the foreign educated mind. He could, aided by
tbe authority ol bis posi.ion, baveso insisted upon
instruction for tbe care of children among Hawaii
ans. tbat the islands would now abound in busy
household nurseries, lie could bave improved all
the habitations of the poor, and have advanced tbe
sanitary welfare of a kingdom. He could have
been an Apostle of Health, and the physical Savi
our of a People. And to have uccomulished all
this he would not bave required any more means
than bave been at the command of the profession
al gentleman or gentlemen during the past twenty
He supposed that about one million of dollars
bave been spent by the Board of Health for sani
tary objects during this period. This is tbe amount
usually said to bave been contributed to the
Board of Missions tu establish Cb.tstianity in these
islands. And tbat sum may be named as tbe debit
of tbe Board of Education during tbe above men
But look at tbe different results accomplished by
these several three millions 1 With tbat of Mis
sions there has been accomplished tbe evangeliza
tion of a people; with iliat of Education there has
been accomplished universal knowledge in this
archipelago, but tor tw million io tbe hands of a
medical Board, what have we to Bhow except the
continued unhealthlulness and decline of a people.
But it is not because medical science is a luilure.
No sir 1 I disclaim such an idea ! But medical
science, as represented by every light and ability
in tbis country, has not been fully and fairly in
voked and tested by the professionals that have
controlled our Board of Health.
Then away with the Doctors ! But in the same
breath, he would say, let us invite every doctor
in the land, to assist witb his skill, his knowledge
and experience to consider and combat the de
stroying influences that decimate the people. Let
us strengthen the hands of good doctors. Life or
Death is often in their hands. Let them give their
time solely to the care of tbe sick. And if, as
he Doped not, another dangerous epidemic lever
should rage, let the doctors unentrammelled with
any care or business of boards, give up their un
divided attention to safferers, who claim their at
tention, and tbe faithful physician will win his
just emoluments, and the blessings of a grateful
Mr. President, it is stated in the minority report !
that the two medical gentlemen on tbe Board, bave
given tbeir time and services, freely, gratuitously,
and without thanks. Now be thought it was high
time we should relieve these self sacrificing gentle
men from tbeir thankless situation. It is true ill at
tbey monopolize and divide the following offices
and emoluments : Medical service under " act to
mitigate " $2,349. Physician to Queens Hospital,
$3,000. Assistant physician to Hospital $700.
Medical attendance Insane Asylum $2,400. Medi
cal examination ol lepers sent to Molokai, $1,200 ;
and also the duties ot port physician, and surgeon
of the troops. Now it is just possible, tbat other
capable professional medical gentlemen might be
found ready to assist with medical advice a Board
of laymen, for tbe sake of a monopoly of these
offices and emoluments. But in order to secure tbe
best talent and the most faithful service, we might
well add a salary as officers of tbe Board. Mr.
President we ought to bave a change. After a
trial ot twenty years ol doctors directing the
Board ; we might make a trial for the next two
years at least, of a Board directing tbe doctors. We
might not, by so doing, diminish the frequent
wail of death on these isles. We might not stay
decline, nor crown tbe land with healthful in
crease of people. We might not win any triumph
to gladden the hearts of ttie friends of Hawaii and
of their kind. All this result is in the bauds of
God. But we might place every town, bamlet. and
dwelling under a thoroughly improved sanitary
condition. We might visit and satisfy every poor
Hawaiian, even in the most out ot the way district
tbat his health was cared for. We might with our
liberal appropriations in the hands of faithful
business men, employ tbe very best medical skill,
and the noblest energies of not only good men.
but good women, to co-operate in the work of pro
viding for the health of the people, so that a satis
fled country, and an enlightened opinion every
where should say, tbis Board of Health has done
He assured the Assembly there was no personal
feeling as alluded to in the minority report. The
Minister of Finance bad said in this House tbat he
felt bis influence neutralised by the two profes
sional gentlemen on the Board. He would now
leave the bill in the bands of the Assembly with
the assurance tbat it would pass.
Tbe Minister of the Interior said be was sur
prised at the speech of the Hon. Member for La
haina. He bad fought a great deal for the
health of the people for 20 years or more, but es
pecially the last 10 years. For the past seven
years be had been connected with the Board of
Health, giving more time to it than be thought
be should ever give to any institution. He had
all to do with the lepers sent to Molokai, and
during that time he had never failed to alleviate
the sufferings of any leper or the friends ot lep
ers. No one Hawaiian could say he had given a
cold answer to their supplication. All this time
the two doctors were on the Board of Health
which it was now proposed to dismiss and dis
grace. Mr. Gibson here said he bad admitted tbe ex
cellent administration on tbe part of the Presi
dent. The Minister said be accepted it with thanks.
Tbe Board had been called a professional Board
of Health. There were two doctors and three
laymen, the latter being members of this cabinet.
The board cannot therefore bo controlled by two
If the administration had been so wretched as
represented His Majesty would have been advised
to displace the members, but by their being re
tained it would seem that be is satisfied. The
Queen's Hospital was controlled entirely outside
the Government. The doctor in charge had kept
his position after many trials and attacks in the
papers, and the best record of his skill was when
the epidemic existed last year. The record of his
practice in proportion to the number of patients
is the best on the list. It was not the duty of
these physicians to go about seeking out the sick.
The Queen's Hospital doors were open for all who
want aid. Free food, medicines, &c , were of
fered. But natives will not accept of it. In tbe
month of June, there were 31 deaths in Hono
lulu with doctors. Was it tbeir fault? These
doctors never refuse to receive a patient in tbeir
offices, whether they have money or not.
lie challenged the statement tbat it is a pro
fessional Board of Health. There were three
laymen against two doctors, and if they were not
able to carry a measure they bad better resign
the Board and the Ministry also. What have
these physicians to do with the short comings at
Molokai ten years ago. The committee had re
commended rations to the lepers that they did
not bave before, and if tbey did not get tbem are
the doctera at fault? He compared the cost of
beef now and ten years ago, thus accounting for
the increased expenses of the lepers. He also
8a id the Board ot Health have nothing to do with
the Queen's Hospital, neither is it their duty to
visit tbe sick on the other islands. Tbe travel
ling physicians are the parties to do tbat work.
He bad known these physicians for years and he
respected them as physicians and men. The
Board of Education ought to feel proud of the
eulogistic praise that bad been bestowed upon
them, perhaps the Honorable member would give
them a monument. As for himself he did not
want one. He wished to alleviate the sufferings
of the people so far as it lay in his power, with
tbe money at his disposal. lie moved the bill
be indefinitely postponed.
Mr. Castle made a few remarks in reference to
the Board of Education and Board of Health in
Mr. Rhodes raid the bill appeared to bim to
be a vote of want of confidence in tbe entire Min
istry. At the beginning of the Session he had
given his views, and be believed the present in
cumbents were exponents of the same policy as
was exercised at the death of Eamebameba V.
lie had nothing to regret at what he had said. It
was the policy he found fault with, and not the
persons. He alluded to tbe Board of Education,
and in reference to tbe Board of Health, lie bad
never found there was any inconvenience through
there being two members on tbe Board, but the
reverse. He made allusion to lepers that were
still at large ; more especially one in the Govern
ment service on tho Island of Maui, and if tbat
was true, it was not only the doctors alone but
the whole of the Board that is to blame. In con
clusion, be said be would reserve his vote on the
Mr. Gibson said he had listened with interest
to the Minister of tbe Interior, and be accepted
his statements in regard to the lepers and his
measures of feeding them. He referred to the
nomination of trustees for the Queen's Hospital
and to the deaths that have occurred which was
not the fault of the doctors. He 6trongly reputed
the challenge that the medical gentlemen did not
rule the Boird. He referred to the Ministers
remarks about monument, and said the Minister
of the Interior was worthy of a monument, and
would suggest that the eiid monument should
have a railroad on one side and a steamboat on

to indefinitely postpone the bill.
