Ihs Excellency W. M. Gibson, iu reply said
that he cordially supported the resolution, and
was prepared to answer immediately without
waiting one day or one hour. He was much
surprised at the heated discussion by the Hon.
gentleman, prompted evidently by outside talk.
He would state that thesr rumors were without
foundation. His Excellency in times past had
urged that the premises on Mauuakea street
were too sin ill and did not offer the facilities to
accommodate, the large uuaiber of sick poor who
were constantly applying for medicine, he had
said iu a notice published that the premises
I were narrow and inconvenient, ami do

sician to give his patients the atteu
: tion that more extended facilities would offer,
j Dr. Fitch complained of the narrow space and
imoi-rfcct facilities afforded by the dispensary in
I M.iuinikea strict, hence he, the President, had
! d .'iseil that the sick seeking gratuitous help

The Hoard of Health, he believed,
be iit a loss to find in the couutrv
a sufficient number of competent medical
men to tii I the positions for which the House
now proposed to provide. Dr. Fitch, as well ns
many of the other doctors, would be needed.
There was no foundation for the stories 011
which th" resolution was based.
Hon. Mr. Aholo moved that the resolution I13
laid 011 the table. It was unnecessary to call
upon the President of the Board of Health to
present a written statement when he had so
luily' replied to the resolution. lie said the
President of the Hoard was fully justified in
reco.isiue tiding the sick to go to different places
for treatment. Some doctors usually sinful
might fail iu a case when others might succeed.
He knew of the case of a woman treated at the
Dispensary by Dr Filch, who after getting
woise was tiikeii to the Hospital, where she was
treated by Dr. Trosseau and got well.
Hon. Mr. K lUhaue was satisfied that the reso
lution introduced bv Hon. Mr. Pihpo was based
entirely -n rumors, the rum irs might be true or
false, but after hearing what His Excellency Mr.
Gibson h id said, he was inclined to beli -ve that
tiie rumors were without foundation, lie was
somewhat surprised that the House had given
so much time to this discussion. He was iu
favor of Hon. Mr. Aholo's motion.
Hon. Mr. Pilipo replied, contending very
earnestly that a written leplj and pledge in re
gard to Di'. Fitch sh mid be made to the House,
by the President of the P. ard of Health ; but
h:s resolution was lost by a large majority.
At lJ.lt) the House took a recess until 1.30.

intention to introduce a bill authorizing the
Comaiisio:it r of Crown Lauds to convey certain

His Excellency the Attorney-General spoke in
opposition to tin- bill, stilting that it was con
ferring a jurisdiction on the Attorney-General
not usual 111 any civilised country in the world.
