THE HAWAIIAN BELL TELEPHONE
Met at half past twelve to-day, 920
out of 1,000 shares being repre
sented. Mr. E. P. Adams stated that they
had met to consider a proposal from
the Mutual Co.
Mr. "W. O. Smith thought their
proposal was unreasonable. What
would benefit one would benefit all ;
he recognized that no good could be
attained by the establishment of two
companies. Their idea of making
no money was too thin. The objects
of the II. B. Co. were not extortion,
and the rates were now as low as
they could be put. The II. B. Co.
had been started by the same men
who were now starting the Mutual,
why hadn't they declared a dividend.
Their earnings for two years had
been absorbed in material and per
fecting their lines, and their property
was now worth $G0,000. The Mu
tual Co. did not make a sound busi
ness proposition and he objected to
the II. B. Co. giving way.
Mr. J. II. Brown thought that the
proposition of Mr. Davies was a
good One and showed a good spiiit.
Mr. E. P. Adams felt sure they
would lose many subscribers who
had telephones in their private
houses, if the treaty were not con
tinued, he would have to give it up.
It was not right or just that the
owner of one share should have the
power to defy the rest. ,
Mr.' Cecil Brown said tho Mutual
Co. had to increase its capital ; they
had 15,000 worth of material, had
to pay freight and Mr. Widemann's
expenses. Tho lot cost 65,000 and
was in Mr. Cartwright's name and
did not yet belong to tiie Mutual Co.
They had no poles or lines up and
only a capital of 30,000. He ad
vocated the withdrawal of their
propositions, and eventually the Mu
tual Co. would ask to be taken over
to the fold of tho H. B Co.
Mr. W, O. Smith explained that I
Iho chief stockholder in tho 11. B.
Co. was u gentleman well known as
a business man. They had not acted
unreasonably but had hitherto ac
ceded to all tho term of the Mutual
Mr. Cassidy said the instruments
of the new company had been out of
use in America for two years and
were of the poorest construction.
Their cable was of no use' to the II.
B. Co. and would only last for a
couple of years. For Sl600 the II.
B. Co. could obtain all the best ma
terial they needed. There was not
a line now out of outer, and Diamond
Head line, where out of repair, was
not in their control.
Mr. Cecil Brown moved and Mr.
W. O. Smith seconded tho following
resolution which was carried unani
Resolution. It is hctcby resolved
that the Hawaiian Bell Telephone
Co., through its secretary, notify
the Mutual Telephone Co. that it
cannot accede to nor accept the pro
position submitted by communica
tion dated April 7th 1SS4, and fur
ther to notify the Mutual Telephone
Co. that the Hawaiian Bell Telephone
Co. withdraws its proposition of
April 2nd 1SS1.
JAMAICA'S POLITICAL CONSTITUTION.
In addition to its exodus of work
ing men, Jamaica is possessed with
another trouble. Lord Derby had
proposed a "change in the political
constitution of the island," which
did not accord with the views of the
Colonists. He recommended the con
stitution of British Guiana which
was held up as "a model for its
morality." Lord Derby's selection
was unfortunate, for, the number of
convictions in British Guiana, during
a period of four years, was "from
5 up to 12 per cent." of the popu
lation, while in Jamaica it had only
been "from li to 2 per cent."
Several large and enthusiastic pub
lic meetings have been held recently
at Kingston and the following is one
of the resolutions that was adopted :
" rPlm4 flitci "tVTYrf inrv nvnfncta
against the change in the Political
Constitution of this Island, as pro
posed in Lord Derby's despatches
dated the 1st December 1883, on
the ground that, notwithstanding the
liberal sentiments expressed by Lord
Derby to a deputation in November
last and enunciated in those des
patches, the "despotic" power of
Crown Government will not be re
moved ; nor will the people of this
island obtain "a substantial power
in matters of finance," or "an effec
tive part through their elected repre
sentatives in managing its affairs."
On the contrary-, the Government
and Legislature will continue to con
sist of a single Chamber, presided
over by the Governor, with an offi
cial majority, who, as the late un
official members truly affirmed when
retiring from the 1 Council, will be
compelled to vote as his Excellency
ma' command, whether they "shall
believe such command to be in ac
cordance with the dictates of reason
and conscience, jus'ticc and truth, or
not." In matteis of general Legis
lation and Government, the Elective
Minority will possess no power at
all ; and in matters of Finance, the
power professed to be given to them
will be so fettered, that it can at any
moment be overridden by the Gov
ernor. This Meeting declares, that
the Governor's presence and power
in ,thc Council, have been in the
past, and will be in the future, un
duly restrictive of the freedom of
debate ; and that nine Eleotive Mem
bers will be numerically inadequate
to represent tho various interests of
the Island ; and in view of the fact
that the Crown still retains exclusive
privilege to initiate finance, as well
as the prerogative of veto, this meet
ing hereby records its emphatic pro
test against the Crown also pos
sessing power to usurp at pleasure
that control over taxation and ex
penditurp, which ought only to bo
exercised by the Representatives of

Ah Chow, pleaded self defence.
Ah Chow, a waiter at the Hawaii
an Hotel stated that defendant, the
second cqok, told him to take back
some food to another table in tho
dining room yesleulay, but he de
clined as it was not fit to put on the
table. King then struck him several
times in the face and knocked him
down. Tho first cook prevented peo
ple from coming to part them.
Two more Chinese witnesses sub
stantiated the statement of Ah Chow.
K. irerschman, tho first cook, said
that defendant ordered Ah Chow to
put a duck on tho dresser, but ho
refused and threw it in the swtll'.tub,
and commenced to tight King.
The defendant, having made a
statement, was fined Sfj and costs
A nol. 2'os. was entered against
