THURSDAY, MAY 4, 1882.
The Assembly held two Sessions
.yestcrdny foivnoon and nftemoon,
although theie is tut yet no weighty
business huforc it, wid in the after
noon, absolutely nothing was done.
A nuinher of petitions were pre
sented and referred, on unimport
ant ninttcis. Seveial resolutions for
the appropriation of moneys for in
ternal improvements were similarly
disposed of among others, one for
the Pali road, of 850,000, to he
spent on that and on imtltiinj clue.
lion. Mr. Kaai offered a resolution
imputing of the Minister of the In
terior as to the piesent status of the
Hawaiian Hotel. His Excellency
Mr. Armstrong replied, giving a
sketch of the history and unsatisfac
tory condition of that institution for
sonic time past, and stated that tin
der all the eit cumstances, it had
been deemed the most economical
and best course to consent to an
assignment of the lease of the pro
perty to Dr. McGrew, which had
accordingly been done. The matter
was then dropped. Hon. Mr. Gib
son, from the Special Committee to
draft a reply to the King's Speech ;
reported the same, which, after some
brief discussion was adopted, and
the Committee ordered to present
the reply to His Majesty.
The reply is worded in the usual
stylo of such documents, being
merely responsive to the generalities
contained in the Royal Speech
with, however, two notable excep
tions. One, referring to the circum
stances which compelled Mr. Carter
to leave the important duties of his
otllcc on the eve of a session of the
Legislature, to supplement with his
diplomacy the work of a previously
appointed Commissioner of immi
giation abroad, expresses the hope
that the bervice may warrant the
considerable expense that will be in
curred. The other instance, is
where it is suggested that in bring
ing hither families of immigrants,
the effort should be made to bring
in races which are cognate with the
Hawaiian. AVc quote from memory,
not having been able to procure a
copy of the icply.
Hon. J. Mott Smith gave notice of
a bill to repeal the passport law ;
also one to repeal the peddling
license. Hon. Mr. Ealua introduced
u bill to make Mnhukona, in Kohala,
a port of entry and departure for
In the Keport of the Minister of
Finance, it is btated that the Cabinet
Council have agiced to recommend
to the consideration of the Legisla
ture a public loan to the amount of
500,000, and a bill to that effect
will be introduced at an early date.
Doubtless, a loan for twice that
amount could be obtained within
the country, if needed. It is under
stood that the proposed loan is in
tended solely for immigration pur
poses. An appropriation is asked for to
"enable the Government to give aid
to bucIi foreign steam lines as may
be for the best interests of the
Fiic-proof buildings arc recom

It is hardly licceiwnry to remind
our readers that this evening is to
take place the Mass Meeting " at
Music Hall, to discuss the ndvtu
tages to our Island Kingdom of n
Total Prohibition Law. W'c may
expect, in view of the interests in
volved, and of the very general dis
cussion on the subject that has been
hud of late among all classes, that
there w ill ho a full attendance t the
meeting. It will perhaps be safe to
predict that the arguments w ill not
he all on one side of the question,
hut that n full and free discussion
and cxpicssion of opinion will he
had. As the Legislative Assembly
is after ail the court of final appeal
in this matter, and as a majority of
its members do not understand
English, it would seem advisable that
the substance at least of the debates
this evening should be interpreted
into Hawaiian, nunc especially as
the member have been formally in
vited to be present. The speakers
announced for the occasion arc the
Rev. Messrs. Cruzan, Alexander and
Bishop, His Honor the Chief Justice,
Messrs. Dole and P. C. Jones.
Sugar is accumulating last in Ho

houses are all full. If our saccharine
wealth continues to accumulate on
our hands at this rate, we shall, like
the man we read of, be obliged to
pull down our old barns nud build
new ones. It is to be hoped that
the companion w ill stop there. The
incoming steamer from the. South,
due next Monday, will have all the
sugar she can take.
A new comet was discovered in
