Furth.-r consideration ot the Act relatin
Commencing at Section 41, tbe evera.I hoction
pn5-r"l with xiiue slight amendment.
Tli'.- Attorney General said Mr. A. Jj. Ilartwell
had handed him document, which he would
read with permi.-ie'itn of the 1Ioum. Permission
being gt.uitcd. be read the letter from Sir. Hart
well, in which that gentleman denied being the
author of the statement in the Gazette.
Ti e Minister of Foreign Kclation said the
statement in the Gazette was untrue, and if it
went abroad uncontradicted, it was likely to do
thw country an injury. What we wish tj guard
agamat is the ttTcct it would bave on tbe money
market abroad. We were all very glad when
the Hon. member for Lahaina introduced a rao
I.tion usiing the Minister of Finance and the re
prest ntative of Dinbop i C. if they paid out de
The Minister of Finance Bftid perhaps the refus
al to grant Mr. Ilartwell gold coin for certificates
gave rise to the article. Mr. Ilartwell bad been
twice in the Ministry, and as a member of the
Privy Council he ought to know the legal tender
of this country. If thoJ certificates were paya
ble in gold, be would get goIJ. if eilver, he would
get silver. It seemed strange to him tbat a man
wbo bad been twice in the Government, and
reaped large benefits therefrom, that be should
be the author of fuch a statement.
A motion was made that tbe document read by
the Attorney General be returned to Mr. Hart- ,
The Attorney General said it bad not been til-
J. Mott Smith said a statement obnoxious to
the Government bad been published in a local
paper. We find we have made a mistake in the
supposed author, and we are bound to take Mr.
Mr. Ahol said be thought there was a conflict
between the Ministry on this afFiir.
The Minister of Finance eaid be had no idea
this thing was going to assume tbe proportions
that it had. He had no recollection of saying tbat
Mr. Ilartwell was tbe author of the statement in
the paper. It was true tbat from bis clerk telling
bim that Mr. ilartwell bad applied for gold for
certificates, he bad bis suspicions. The applica
tion for the exchange of certificates Tor gold was
made on the 18th of Marcb.
Mr. Rhodes said we might pour a little oil on
this matter, and smooth it over. This difficulty
has not arisen in this House, and they had no
thing to do with it. He could not see that there
was any divergence on the part of the Ministry.
He considered that the proper course would be
for the Government to write to the publiebcr of
the Gazette and request him to contradict the
statement, and if be refused, it was then lor the
WTiter of tbe document read by the Attorney
General bad stated in it that be bad no connect
ion with the journal, whose injurious remarks
were the subject of a resolution before the Assem
bly yeeterday, then there would be some perti
nence in his communication. He would support
the motion of tbe Hon. Noble Mr. Rhodes.
The motion was carried.
The House adjourned at 1 p m.

An Act to provide medicines and medical com
forts for contract laborers and destitute people,
on its second reading, introduced by Mr. Rhodes.
On motion it was decided to diecuss it section
by section. The firl section as amended reads
Section I. The owner or manager of every
plantation, manufactory or other industrial es
tablishment m which contract laborers are en-
gaged, shall provide medicine, medical attend- j
ance, and comforts with suitable lodging, Irre of i
charge to every such contract laborer or worker
Mr. Rhodes said he had prepared two addition
al section, and he proposed that the House re
eolve itself into conitmitco of the whole to discuss
the bill. Carried.
Mr. S. W. Kaai moved that the tir.-t section
Mr. Rhodes explained the object of the bill.
He aid it was lor -ergons on low wages, and
who are thereby unable to luriuc'i themselves
with medical attendance. lie wan of opinion
that a man who recciv?e more than 1 rer day
ought to lie able to pay f'jr hiui.iclf. Some mem
bers think that because u man hai a plantation
be must be rich. It a tui.-takc. lie thought
it was tbe duty ol the Mate to support the poor.
Mr. Gibson supported the bill. A measure of
this kind does honor to the introducer and honor
to this Aencmbly if it rhould pass. In colonial
planting countries, more e.-peci.illy thosi of Kng
land, great care is taken ol the health ol the peo
ple. It is nccciwary, not only as a Mgu of our
own progre-se, but also ol our humanity.
Mr. liisiiop thought it would !e onerous on the
planter to pay 1 a day wage and have to find
medicines. Ao did not wiMi to criticise the mo
tive which led the lloturahlc Ni.blc to bring in
the bill, but he thought many parts of it were
unnecessary, and that the introducer would
shortly wish to see it repealed, lie would feel
obliged to oppose it unices very much altered.
Tbe Minister of toe Interior objected to the
compulsion of physicians attending once a week.
His experience was that plantation people are
the beet cared for in the country. It is to tbe
planter's interest that every man should be in
Tbe second section was read as follows :

about 50 or more contract laborers shall employ i

WhereiB, at the close ol tne session of 1878 a

Government lias made no claim as alluded to in
the rcsoluti n. Iu 187'J there w.u. some $3,000
paid under protest, hut he did not see anything
on the part ol the Hawan. ui Government to eon
cede, and if the BritiMi ( vernuient has a claim,
they have a comniisM.'iier to dj it, and it ought
not to be brought up u. rough the House. Since
those amounts were paid under protest, nothing
further has been heard ol the matter, and it those
people wish to perlect their claims they must
bring them through the court o the Kingdom.
Mr. Pilipo said it would be better if the Min
ister could report the final settlement ol all
claims. He would ark it the introducer was sat

Mr. Aholo uif
Mr. Kapuou i.iought it only right the Legisla
ture should fix the pay of deputy sheriff, and net
the Marshal. In some districts the pay. is 35,
some 40, and others 70 per month, and an
equal amount of work to be done in each district,
therefore it was about time for this House to
take this matter into consideration.
The Attorney General said he was very sorry
tne meuioer tor Kau should think there is any
I difference in pay in consequence of color. Had
he been here a few weeks ago when a bill was be
j fore the House to enquire into police matters,
; they would probably have had his vote in favor
! of the bill. Deputy-sheriffs are satisfied or they
would complain. It may be because one man is
, vigilant and represses crime, whereas an indolent j
man allows crime to be perpetuated, and causes !
more work. At Lahaina the deputy sheriff
formerly received 100 per month now he gets 1
but 70 because the district is smaller. Though
, he was willing to reform the police system, be ;
did not think that the passage ol this bill would ;
t better matters. Perhaps the next Legislature j
; will devise means to re-organize the whole body i
; and put it on u better footing than at present. !
The motion to indefinitely postpone the bill j
was lost. Cill passed to engrossment, to be read ;

Mr. Nawahi also opposed the bill in a speech

Further consideration of an
Act to provide !
medicines and medical comforts for contract labor- j
crs and destitute people.
The House continued to discuss seeti n 11. It I
was finally struck out.
Section 3 was then read.
Mr. Rhodes said we are introducing a number i
of persons who are perfectly uncivilized in their i
habits, they do not know our ways, neither do j
we know theirs, and where they are not cared .
for, it is tho duty of the Government to care for
them. Only the other day a South Sea Islander j
was walking stark naked about the streets. j
Mr. Bishop proposed a slight addition to the
section. It was numbered section 2, and read as i
follows : !
Section 2. When illness attacks any contract ;
laborer occupying a dwelliug jointly with others, ;
the keeper of said house, on requisition of the !
physician in attendance, shall cause the said sick
peroon to be removed to a separate airy and well j
ventilated building, and to be circfully attended !
and nursed until the illness is cured or has run :
its course, it such sick person is willing to be so
removed, or if the safety or comfort of others will ,
be promoted by such removal.
The next was then read :
Section three provides that policemen finding j
sick and deserted persons on the highroads, shall ;
cause them to be taken before the nearest justice :
and thence to the nearest dispensary, or treated :
as provided for in section one. !
Section 4. Any indignent sick Hawaiian, not i
a contract laborer, may be sent, on recommenda- '
tioii of the resident physician, to the Queen's ;
hospital at the charge of the Government.
Mr. Bish.ip said there would be difficulty in :
carrying out the Act. To carry a sick person :
from one inland to another might "be the very j
worst thing that could be done. It seemed to 1
The Minister of Finance said, he could not see ,
how this law could he carried out.
Mr. Rhodes said, he did not know whether the
Minister thinks it is not the duty of this Gov- ;
eminent to look alter poor people, hut it is the ,
duty of all civilized Governments to do so.
The Minister of the Interior said he did not i
object to the purport of the bill, but he did ob- j
jeet to a constable taking charge of a person who i
he thinks is sick. It was objectionable to give I
that power to a policeman to say to a man " you 1
are sick, I am going to take you to justice," j
though the man might declare he was not sick. !
He could not give bis vote for that section. j
Mr. Rhodes said he was Eurpriscd at the Minis- j
ter. One generally supposes tbat policemen are j
possessed with the same common sense as other
human beings. If they are not gifted with com-
inon sense they should not be appointed. The j
substance of this clause is taken Irom a law now j
in force in Fiji, where they have South Sea Isl
anders and East Indians. J
A discussion followed on the practicability of j
. - . . i .i f .. .
sending tree patients, oiner man nawaiians. to
the Queen's Hospital.
Mr. Kaulukou, in speaking of the doctor's em
ployed at the hospital, said he thought they were
behind the age, and that they knew nothing
about the present system of medicine.
Section 1. Any violations of this Act if proved i
belore a police or district justice, shall be fined j
by a fine not exceeding O.UO

Chicago, July 1st. The Supervisor of the
Cenaus writes the Department at Washington
that tbe population of Chicago will not be less
t ban 435,000, and says to-day that it may reach
hi iir a million. Tbe Lake Side Directory appears
to viay, and gives the city 536,358 population.
Tb difference is owing to the fact that the Di
ret -ory includes the Bridgeport 6tockyards and
tV immediate suburbs, none of which are in

New York, July 1st. Tbe receipts of flour,

ports for tbe week, and during the past eight
weeks are also tbe largest on record, being for
the week, 3,084,333 bushels of wheat ; 4,033,
