Tbe minority report was laid on tbe table
until the majority shall be reported. "
An Act to amend Section 1277 and 1278 of
the Civil Code, relating to costa in the Police
Court. Read first and second time, and .refer red
to a select committee aa follows : Attorney Gen
eral, Kaloa, Kaolukoa, Kakina and Nawabi. j
Tbe House then proceeded to tbe unfinished
basincw, which whs tbe further consideration of
an Act to amend Chapter 53 of an Act entitled
so act to aid tbe development of the resource of
the Kingdom. . . j
Mr. Gibson said, tbe bill now before u com
prise a variety of subjects, and is what is tetwri
aii omnibus bill. It seems rather cumbersome
with its many amendments and variety of sub
jects, still its main object that of a loan may be
worthy of our consideration. Tbe House will
remember that in one of tbe reports of tbe Fi
nance Committee they recommended a loan for
certain special objects. It may be said that tbe
subject of loans bo occupied tbe attention of
every civilized Government. The progress and
developcment of countries has been largely car
ried on by a vast system of credit. It is said
over and over again that the progress and ad
vancement of certain States is owing to tbeir
large indebteUnw. It is certainly said of Eog
land that its 1-irge national debt is the cbief
cause of the stability of the country ; and is also
said by Americans that whatever may be attribu
ted to labor and invention, a large share of
tbe advancement of their great country is attri
buted to loans from foreign countries. It may
be said that tbe grcut debt of the United States
is chiefly owing to war, which could not be a
source of prosperity, but within tbe Government
of the United States of America there is a large
family of Slate that are owing many millions of
dollars to foreign countries. The vast net work
of railroudi, some 20,000 or 40.000 miles, has
been very largely built up by borrowed capital.
It baa happened that some of those States Lave
not been able to pay their bond, and in one case
rcpudicated their indebtedness to foreigners.
Tbe State of Miiieippi borrowed large sums of
money from Great Britain, and lng after tbe
contract, other parties gaining an influence in
the country brought about such action as to re
pudiate this State debt. Now this brings us to
the consideration of the point brought forward
by Mr. Clefchorn, that our indebtedness might be
the cause of our losing our independence. Tbe
State of Miwiwppi lost none or her liberties on
account of her unwillingness or inability to pay
her debts. At the time she was a part of tbe
United States, but Great Britain t.xk no action
and did nothing to protect those of her subjects
who bad lent their money in this instance ; and all
that was done was to send an agent of the bond
holders to remonstrate with tbe debtors of Mis
sissippi, lie begged to call the attention of tbe
Assembly to that agent who waa no other than a
former illustrious Minister of our Hawaiian
King, Mr. R. C. Wylie. He would say that
Mississippi was not benefited by that action ; she
JoJt somewhat ber good name, but she did not
lose mnj portion of ber liberties, and there was
no thought of any political action against her on
account of her being unable or unwilling to pay
the debt due to a foreign country. The rich men
of old States like Eogland, France, Holland and
Germany have been lending money to various
young nations in tbe world, but tbe governments
of these several money-lenders have never under
taken to assist them as collectors. All these
several countries enumerated have their laws to
aid in collecting accounts, and to protect both
creditors ami debtors; but when the lender goes
beyond hi uational bounds to engage in a loan
he mimt m longer look to the assistance of his
country to protect him in bis venture. Those
nations will not risk their power, or send their
fleets and armaments to recover money ; but they
will do to save the life or a single one of tbqir
subjects or citizens.
lioVntllrd to mind an instance of a man nam-
ir.via who was rathor a doubtful citizen of
tbe United States, but who had been . seized
rather arbitrarily by mi Austrian man-of-war.
At once an American cowi. -.nder in the vicinity,
Capt. Ingrahain. put his 'p in order of battle
and wa ready to rick liis-vn life and those ol
bis officers and men Ift H.e .ke of dcleoding thw
one man. Ajtain another ini-tance during the
late great war of America. England was ready
to throw down tbe gauntlet and rirk a destructive
war to afert her principle in regard to the
ri 'hu ot uien. in connection with the Trent af
f .?, Th(. nations are ready to risk armies for
rri.icirles. but not for money. Capitalists of
England loaned tlieir money, many lens or mil
lion M Turkey, but England never .sent an
armv atfaio-t Turkey to recover one cent of such
loans. Turkey ha been engaged in dregful wars
...rr.n-.i defeats, but has suffered nothing
from foreign armed intervention on account of
S.'r. Cleghorn asked if there wa not an agent
of England and alao one or France residing m
Mr. Gibson said ye, to assist ber in her
affairs and bring about a better administration.
We come to Egvpt, a deiendency of Turkey,
Vrt hn attracted efpecial attention, because
her Pasha was exiled in consequence of Lis ex
travagance and large indebtedness. -He was
obliged to resign, but his son teign fn his Head,
and the people of thai country enjoyed as much
liberty, if they ever had any as before. But this
case is exceptional, and ought not to be adduced.
Eivri borrowed under a guaranteed contract,
and not by subscription in an open market.
And besides Etvpl was a dependency existing
under a firman, or a sort of power ol attorney of
its Sovereign the Sultan of Turkey. Inferences
had aluo been made to New Zealand, with her
indebtedness of 130,000.000. This has. been
rent o immigration, railroads, and other in
ternal improvements. It is likely that the ISew
Zealand Government may have borrowed more
money than was actually needed, and pressure
now brt.ujthl to bear on the tag-pHVer?, W7
have all the advantages of railroads and other in
ternal improvement which msjjel be a cause
of ureal prosperity to that country. Thus we
roay consider Ue sobject of loan without tearing
to risk oar liberties. Bat tbe queauont arise
now. is there any occasion to borrow money?
It may seem to many that thae i no especial
cause for. a loan, but shall we spend all.OHT
revenue on current expenditure: ;aleave
nothing for the future? Our water-works were
undertaken many years ago with borrowed
money, which was judiciously expended, an
now we have property and income iron that er
ture. An enterprise for sewerage now con
mand our attention. If IIono!ulaBnouia ioe
its good niue for health, then the prospent
of thee bland is teriourlv 'affected. He fel
sore tlat all tbe medical gentlemerrortbe city
including the two on the Brd of HplR,4yroul(
azfee ith him that a system if sewerage; o
other method of cleanin? and defecting, i

will reouire at least 2M) 000. We bare ap
propriiued for a Marine JUilway 0r,threpairi
of sli(-s, but it might be worth while to coneidef;
vrhetlter it would not be better to have a dock
costing more money, perhaps as mVcIT'J
ooo. -- j
The deepening of the entrance' to the' hafboi;
ought to Lave our most earnest coobideratiop, at
thte liae. Gentlemen were not aware that vt-
sels drawing 20 feet or water could not enter,'
but with our harbor deepened and tbe entrance
wi-.ed we ar at 'erty o Invite Meets from all
- parts- if tbe wo!! to con e here .td ttair and
recruit to the teat adfaotage. AtiAher natter
is the laying of aa intcr-island cable. This
wou'i be to our internal adventage, and would
teed to facilitate t'.e operations of the Govern
ment, bind tls Archiieluico closer, and add to
our pn-i-erity. Let us also look at tbe bill for
an occsti cable. He kjiew nothing about the or-
a - .a a a a
tgiQ oi ine Dtii, and be discussed this subject
only in reference to it merits. He thought
fee measure in some shape should receive consid
eration from the AaaemblT at this time. He un
derstood the coat to be about $1,000 s mile, aay
$2,000,000 altogether to connect with the Amer
ican continent. If accomplished by some reas
onable assistance on our part,, it would redound
to the credit of thia Amembly. Tbe subject of
raurowoa ana siecunscups snould also have our
consideration. He -would aay cordially of tbe
Minister of the Interior, whatever bis position in
tbe country, that each enterpriaea as these oould
BOt be placed in better hands. And now a great
point to be conaidered is the reduction o? tbe
rate of interest in this country. There can be
no prosperity where tbe rate of interest is aa
high aa-12 or 18 per cent. When he spoke to an
emineot Eoglieh gentleman about our rate of in
terest, thia gentleman pronounced it as black
rain. Ue did not believe there waa any indust
ries ia any country which could warrant such
rate of interest. It waa aaid that before we got
the treaty with America that we were going to
ruin and we are still strugzling with its help.
Now there ia Manila and Mauritius can send
their sugar advantageously to the same market
we do notwithstanding our remission of duty.
Tbe reason why we seemed to have no advan
tage was tbe high rate of interest as well aa diffi
culties about labor bearing down on tbe planter.
Perhaps there are other reasons, eucb as extra
vagance of living and want of economical man
agement of labor. Let ua now consider tbe bill
itself which ia before the Assembly. He knew
nothing about its authority, and did not want to
know. Our province is to consider the measure.
In the minority report on thia bill it is stated
that it might be proper to consider the subject
of one, two or three million loan ; or whatever
sum might meet with the approval of this Assem
bly. Ue never advocated a ten, eight, or five
million loan. It may be possible that we have
appropriated more than our revenue will come
to, and may need more money on that account,
but be hoped not. He felt we nave appropriat
ed for good measures. Ue thought the subject
of coinage ought to be separated from any such
bill. He would move that the bill and reports
be recommitted to consider if there were not
grounds for a special loan for certain works of
internal improvements to be determined by an in
telligent and experienced commission.
Mr. Castle said the debts, if once contracted,
could not be repudiated. From what he had
learned, $10,000,000 would be nearly one-hair of
the value of property in this country. Large
debts will not always shield weak communities.
Where a strong nation might be able to repudi
ate, a weak one could not. lie was of opinion
that loans tbould be confined to those things that
will add to the comfort and happiness of the peo-
Ele. As it wis late in the session, he thought it
etter to discuss :t and dispose or it, rather than
refer to a special committee, a measure which be
would have supported at an earlier 6tage.
Mr. Gibson said it was idle to talk about a
ten million loan ; nobody advocated each a loan.
Tbe ayes and noes were taken on tbe indefinite
postponement of the bill with the following re

Seventy-sevemth Dat Saturday Aug. 7, 1880.
Tbe Minister of tbe Interior gave notice of an
Act to encourage steam navigation between Ho
nolulu and San Francisco, also of an Act to pro
vide for tbe drainage and sewerage or Honolulu.
In referring to tbe steamboat bill, His Excel
lency said, we never can hope to put on as large
boats as we have now, but as this line of steam
ers will surely be drawn off in two years hence,
it is necessary that we should look to tbe future.
The bill provides for a fortnightly service. It
will give us two ocean steamers under the Haw
aiian flag. He hoped tbe House would see fit to
pass the bill and leave it to tbe Government to
make tbe best possible contract.
Mr. Kalua said be supported tbe bill and spoke
at length on the subject.
Mr. I Ian ana proposed that it be referred to a

ponement. Kcport adopted.
An Act to license the sale ot salmon was read
a third time and pased.
An Act to encourage steam navigation in Com
mittee of the Whole.
In answer to several inquiries, the Minister of
the Interior said it was to provide Tor an emerg
ency that will surely arise. The Australian line
will be withdrawn when tbe Colonies cease to
pay tbe present subsidy, which is 400,000 per
annum. You cannot get companies to build
boats for a two years contract. The running ex
penses of tbe steamers described in the bill is
$12,000 a month. It will be a great thing to
have two steamers entering tbe Golden Gate with
Hawaiian flag. Tbe Government has been offici
ally requested to make the Sabbath a day of la
bor. If the steamers leave with that intention
he would never vote for it.
Mr. Bishop said Le bad always opposed subsid
ies, and thought it so much money thrown away.
The bill passed to engrossment.

Mr. Gibson, tbe introducer of tbe bill, aaid
there may be some imperfection in tbe bill con
sidering tbe work of translation. Tbe other bill
made provision for a coinage, whereas there waa
nothing about it in thia bill.
It might be shown that there are good reasons
for borrowing. He was of opinion that tbe ser
vices of a civil engineer should be engaged, and a
thorough investigation made of the state of tbe
country, and then we might see tbe necessity or
utilizing foreign capital. He said he did not
vote for tbe $10,000,000 to support it, but that
it might be brought up in some modified form.

Eightt-first Day Wednesday, Aug. 11, 1880.
After tbe reading of yesterday's journal, Mr.
Gibson took exception to that portion referring
to tbe indefinite postponement or the Cable bill.
He said that be had been informed there was not
a quorum in the House. Furthermore, the pro
poser was not present, and is it not customary to
show courtesy to the introducer of a bill, more
especially in a case like this, when the steamer
was leaving. This bill was set down for to-day.
The order of things was reversed. Many mem
bers retired feeling there was undue action. It
is contended there were 24 members present, and
tbe President made 25, but when tbe vote was
taken to suspend tbe rules there was not a quo
rum in their seats, to which some of tbe members
can testify. He wanted fairness. His action
would have been to vote that the bill should have
been sent to a committee. He therefore moved
that tbat part of the journal referring to tbe bill
1 be Minister ot tne interior saia tnac tnoee
members who were in favor of the bill left tbe
House so tbat tbey should not have a quorum.
A motion was made that the House adjourn, and
lost. The filibustering commenced on tbe side
of the opposition.
Mr. Gibson said the spring was made in tbe
afternoon by tbe Ministry proposing to make this
bill the order of tbe day for the day previous to
tbat which had been settled upon.
Tbe Minister of tbe Interior said tbe action of
the House was perfectly parliamentary, and tbe
several motions were duly carried by a large maj
ority. Mr. Kalua testified to tbe member for Labaina
being present, when tbe first motion was brought
forward, and seeing it was carried be left tbe

that passports were regarded as a nuisance.
Germany and France had abolished this system.
The Attorney General said it was tbe means of
enabling the authorities to collect taxes from peo
ple who would otherwise go away without pay
Mr. Gibson said his reason for bringing for
ward this bill was because he was inspired with
the desire to maintain the good name or this
port. The idea or our passports is regular bar
barism. It is a relic of slave countries. There
were no passports except in free Hawaii, and the
beautiful free port of Honolulu.
The bill was referred to a special committee.
The President appointed, the Attorney General,
Messrs. Hanuna, Gibson, Abolo, and Cleghorn.

Mr. Rhodes moved that this bill be indefinite

sage of this bill would have on tbe relations of
this country with Great Britain. He said it waa
only a suspicion tbat there has been an attempt
to export foreign rice to the United States, from
Hawaii, that caused the -Ministry to briDg' this
bill forward. It would be the means of throw
ing those overboard who have been, our .riends,
and gafe us our first treaty in 1851. " It would

Mr. Castle spoke in favor of a decimal coinage.
Tbe Minister of tbe Interior aaid thia is a Gov
ernment bill, and they bad requested Mr. Gibson
to introduce it on account of hia having previous
Ir civen notice of a bill on thia subject. He saw
no reason why we should not have a coinage or
our own. United btatea goia is made ot a cer
tain value, and is circulated at the same value.
Tbe TJ. S. Government can buy silver and coin
a dollar for ninety cents. Coins of a value of 90
cents to 93 cents in tbe United States pass here
aa $1.00. This country can make arrangements
with tbe United States to coin lor tbem. We
can have a dollar coined for 90 cents, and there-
bv make the ten cents instead of others. This
w'ill. or course, depend upon tbe price or bullion.
Regarding the coinage of 10 cents and 5 cents

The President appointed the following gentle
men : The Minister of the Interior, Governor
Bush, Hons. A. S. Cleghorn, Abolo and Kalua.
Tbe minority of the Committee appointed to
report on tbe resolution relating to the applica
tion for $30,000 to redeem notes of His Majesty,
read tbeir report, and recommended tbe indefi
nite postponement of tbe resolution.
The majority report was also read, which re
commended tbe passage of the resolution.
Mr. Cleghorn moved tho adoption of the ma
jority report. He was in favor of the money be
ing advanced by the Government. He was op
posed to His Majesty being under any obligation
to any one out of tbe country, lie took the
same view of this matter as he did in regard to
the $10,000,000 loan. He had no objection to
Mr. Spreckejs, he is a gentleman who is doing a
great deal of good for this country, but it would
be better if he were paid off and the notes there
Mr. Pilipo supported the minority report, as
also did Mr. Hanuna.
Mr. Gibson said he favored the majority re
port, and approved of what Mr. Cleghorn had
etated. lie understood that interest bad been
paid up to July last. lie alluded to the example
of Great Britain in the case of King George IV,
when they paid off a debt of $2,000,000. What
is proposed now is merely a transfer of the ac
count from one department of the public treas
ury to another.
The ayes and noes were taken on the motion to
indefinitely postpone the resolution as follows :
Ayes Messrs Eunuiakea, Nawabi, Woods, S W Eaai,

Mr. Gibson made a verbal report on the same
bill. He regretted that one of the last works of
this assembly should be to refuse to abolish tbe
annoyance of passports. He cited instances
where it had been recorded as a nuisance, and be

Tbe bill was indefinitefy poetponed.

Gladstone's New Dilemma. Extremes have
met in opposition to Forster's Irish Land Bill,
and even the concession to the Landlord's invol
ved in Gladstone's amendment fails to satisfy the
Conservatives, while it strengthens the hostility
of the followers of Parnel. The land-owners,
not only in Ireland but throagbout tbe United
Kingdom, are filled with consternation at the
prospect or tbe passage ot a measure which they
regard as aiming a blow at tbe rights of pro
perty. One large land-owner is reported
aa declaring that the bill, if passed, will
reduce bis income $50,000. The opposition
tn it m Parliament is described as be
ing vehement and passionate beyond all prece
dent. But while the measure is denounced by
the landed interests as agrarian and revolution
ary, the Irish tenants, in whose behalf it was in
augurated, oppose it as not going far enough.
Under these circumstances Gladstone occupies a
most embarrassing position. At tbe same time
that a considerable and influential portion of his
own party following appear ready to desert him
on this burning issue, those whom be designed to
benefit and conciliate denounce the bill as a half
way measure utterly inadequate to tbe emergen
cy. Meantime tbe opinion seems to be gaining
ground tbat the Fenians and extreme Home
Rulers expect to avail themselves of the agita
tion 'to further their political purposes, caring
comparativelv little for any concession of the
Government which will go no further in its ope
ration than merely to afford present relief to the
distressed tenants. Altogether, the situation is
full or perplexity for the new Liberal Ministry,
and it seems almost impossible for them to find
any method bf 'dealing with tbe land question

Secretary Evarts bas indicated to our represen
tatives at Santiago and Lima tbat this Govern
ment would not decline to intercede in behalf ol
the restoration of peace between Chile and Peru.
The tonoof last official advices does not give hope
tbat the offer will be accepted, as the Peruvians
do not yet concede tbat tbeir cause is hopeless,
and are now preparing for a renewal of active
hostilities. About a year ago the United States
declined to unite witb England and Germany to
oriog mis unnecessary war to a ciee. lne im
portant commercial interests ot au nations in
that section have seriously suffered, and tbe
United States has taken the initiative. England
and Germany will follow in their demands for
peace, lbe Department of State regards the ex
orbitant demands of Chile for a money indemni
fication for losses incident to tbe war and Terri
torial security, as simply a subterfuge by means
oi winch tne Chilean Government hopes to per
manently annex some of the most valuable por
tions of tbe Peruvian soil.
The Chilean Minister has received advices
from Chilean representatives at Panama, an
nouncing the arrival of tbe Chilean fleet off Cal

terms of peace proposed by Chile are not accept
ed by the Peruvian Government. The inhabit
ants of Lima are leaving the city.
lne capture ot Arica by the Chileans is con
sidered a death blow to the hopes of Peru; but
President Pierola still urges war to the bitter
end, and is taking most energetic measures.
Ihe Chilean Minister expresses the opinion
that the Peruvians will be unable to make anv
effectual defense of tbe city, and that in a few
days, the news of their capitulation, and with it
tbe close of the war. will be received.

Writing for the Papers.
The Boston Post hits the nail on the head
when it says ; Communications should he bri "f,
and there are several reasons lor this. In the
first place, newspaper space is valuable. The
modern newspaper is never troubled with the
old-time complaint of needing "something to Gil
up." The editor's scalpel is constantly reeking
from the slaughter of live news matter and inter
esting miscellany. Short communications are
much more likely to find readers than long ones
are. and unless they are to be read it is much
better not to publish them. More contributions
can be represented where the articles are short
than when they arc long, and one man has as
strong a claim upon the columns as nnother, pro
vided he furnishes ns interesting matter. A short
article is usually more pithy and pointed than a
long one. A subject should have many ramifica
tions to demand more than half a column in a
newspaper, while all that can be saved even from
that limit up to a certain point is apt to be an
improvement. That prince of journalists, the
late Samuel Bowles, once apologized for a long
editorial, and gave as his excuse lack of time to
write a short one. He expressed aa important
truth in his usual epigrammatic way.
News from the "Corwix." The United States
revenue cutter Corwin, which was dispatched
to the relief of the Jcanelle and the ice-bound
whalers, arrived at Ounalaska on the 3rd of June,
after a rough passage of twelve days, in which
she proved herself a staunch sea craft. Tbe
following extracts from a private letter written
by one of ber officers under date of June 7th
are given : " We have 100 tons or conl on board
now, and will sail to-morrow morning for the is
lands and tbe north. We hope to be at the
straits by the 15th inst., and will push through
into the Arctic on the first opening of the ice.
We are all prepared for a winter in the Arctic,
having enough stores on board to last all hands
fourteen months. At St. Michaels we will pro
cure two dog trains and add a quantity of salt
fish to our provisions. The indications are
favorable for an early opening in the ice. The
past winter was mild and the spring stormy.
High winds are said to break the ice and open
the Arctic ;arlier than clear, fine weather, which
is usually accompanied by a very low tempera
ture." Tbe London portfmn announces Ihe receipt of

Baughman has been killed." Hold on, stop

Then he told his dream, omitting tbe name
