The formal opening of the Legis
lative Assembly for 1884 by His
Majest3' tue K"ig, took place at
Aliiolani Hale this morning at noon.
Special invitations had been sent to
the Nobles, Representatives, Mem
bers of the Privy Council, Foreign
Ministers and Consuls, while the
general public were admitted by in
vitation of His Excellency the Minis
ter of the Interior. By half-past
eleven o'clock the troops had ar
rived and taken up their position
outside the building, the Band being
in the enclosure of the Kaniehameha
The attendance was very large the
Legislative Hall where the proceed
ings took place was well Tilled.
Being a fine day the ladies turned
out in goodly numbers and some of
the toilets worn were very beautiful.
His Majesty arrived at the hall
punctually at 12 o'clock, and was
received by the troops presenting
arms, a salute was fired from the
battery and the Royal Hawaiian
Band played the national authctu.
A few minutes after twelve the
Judges in their new robes, followed
by the Ministers with their ladies,
took their seats, being followed by
the Chancellor of the Kingdom, His
Majesty's Chamberlain" Col. C. II.
Judd and His Majesty the King
leading Her Royal Highness Piincess
Liliuokalani, attended by His Ex
cellency Governor Dominis and the
Hon, A. S. Cleghorn. His' Majesty
was dressed in military uniform and
"wore several decorations.
The ceremony opened with prayer
by the Chaplain of the Household,
the Rey. Alex. Mackintosh, this was
The King's Speech,
frolics and Representatives:
Since the prorogation of the Legis
lative Assembly in 1.882, My King
dom has enjoyed n period of un
precedented prosperity ylien indus
try and enterprise have met an nrople
reward, itnd till the material interests
of the coimtry have been largely
developed, us shown in the lcports
of the Ollluers of My Government
by a large and steady increase of
production, exportation and revenue'
During the period that has elapsed,
1 have had to deplore the loss of
two members of the Royal Family,
II. R. 11. the late Princess Ruth
Keelikolani, and II. R. 11. the late
Princess Victoria Kinoiki Kekaulike,
the Governess of Hawaii.
I am happy to be able to give you
insurances of My continued friendly
relations with all the powers of the
The concurrence of many great
powers, especially of the United
States, of Great Britain, of France,
of Germany, of Russia, Portugal and
of Japan in the celebration of the
Coronation of Myself and Royal
Consort, and their olllcial representa
tion at the ceremonial was an as
surance and guarantee most gratify
ing to Us and the Nation, that the
enlightened spirit, of the Govern
ments of these Great States recog
nized this event as an expression of
national will for the promotion of
loyalty and of national sentiment
among the Hawaiian People.
Animated by these assurances of
good will, and bearing in mind the
cordial manifestations of friendship
towards My Person by Sovereigns
and Governments of Great States on
the occasion of My visit at their
Courts, I have been anxious to
maintain these relations, and there
fore commissioned as Special Envoy
Colonel the Honorable Curtis P.
luukca, to be the bearer of My
heartfelt regards to the Sovereigns
and Heads of States who have so
signally honored Me and My State ;
and it is with great satisfaction that
I speak of his reception at the Courts
of Great Britain, France, Russia,
Austria, Italy and Scrvia as being a
welcome accorded to the trusted
Messenger of a beloved Friend.
My relations with the United Slates
of America continue to be of the
most satisfactory character. The
Treaty of Reciprocity which has
completed a stipulated period, is yet
maintained by both Governments as
a measure of mutual national ad
vantage and friendship, but I, desir
ing to give greater stability to the
industriesl enterprises of the country,
have assented to a proposal for its
continuance for a renewed period,
and My Minister Plenipotentiary at
Washington has been instructed to
act in accordance with this policy.
The pnterprisc of. immigration of
Portuguese and other peoples, as a
measure for repopulation of My
Kingdom has largely engaged the at
tention of My Ministers during the
late biennial period and liberal sup
plies for furthering this object were
voted by the late Assembly. That
measure is fraught with so much im
portance to the future welfare of the
country, that it should again be fully
considered and receive your very
The settlement in the country of
Portuguese, and other immigrants
who have fulfilled a term of service
is most desirable, and My Ministers
will submit to you measures to pro
mote their residence as a permanent
partof the population of My Kingdom.
The subject of the currency of
the Kingdom has received the at
tention of My Government during
the late period. The Assembly of
1880 having passed a law to provide
a National Coinage, engagements
were entered into with the Secretary
of the Treasury and with the Offi
cers of the Mint of the United States
of America, by which it was agreed
that a Silver Coinage for My King
dom should be executed of precisely
the same weight and standard of
fineness as that of the United States.
This has been accomplished and
furthermore the subject of a monet
ary exchange has been discussed
with authorities at Washington, and
there is ground for hope that the
currency of the two countries will
erelong be interchangeable.
I regret to speak of a national
ailliction of what is deemed a
disease of a contagious nature, but
the measures taken by the Health
Authorities in carrying out tho law
of segregation have placed the evil
under better sanitary control than
ever before, and I am very hopeful
of increased health in My Kingdom,
and an improvedsanitary condition
of the country, owing in part to tho
ministrations 6f Slaters of Charity,
who have come to the help of My
People with their devotion of spirit
and faithful nursing skill ; so that I
trust that the disease will not only
be held in oheck, but controlled to
tho point to which charity and hu
man skill can attain.
I deem it important to call your
attention to the Law of the Assem
bly of 1882, to "Regulate the Sale
of Spirituohs Liquors," which by
its own terms expires in October
next, I trust that you will give to
this subject your most earnest atten
tion, and Inking into consideration
the operation of the Law, will deter
mine in your deliberation such action
as may bo best calculated to piomoto
temperate habits among My People
and the general welfare of My King
dom. The subject of Sub-marine Tele
graphic Communication, both Inter
island and Trans-oceanic has boon
earnestly considered and taken in
hand by My Government, a complete
line of soundings between the Islands
of Hawaii, Maui, Molokai, Oahu and
Kauai, having been taken by order
of My Minister of the Interior, who
will submit the subject of Sub-marine
Cable Communications as a National
Hawaiian enterprise for your con-,
My Minister of the Interior will
also submit for your consideration,
plans for the supply of Honolulu
with an abundance of water to an
extent commensurate with a large
future development of the city.
I am anxious in view of the large
increase of a mixed people in My
Kingdom, that the military and po
lice administration of the country
should be placed upon a more ef
fective basis, and the Attorney Gen
eral of My Kingdom will place before
you plans and estimates to provide
for the increased effectiveness of this
important branch of the public ser
vice. My Minister of Finance will lay
before you the estimates for the
biennial period we have now enter
ed upon. I am pleased to observe
in these estimates a careful con
sideration of the resources and ,
capabilities of the country. I re
cpgnize the importance of economic
administration of our national credit
as well as to internal development.
And I am well content that My Min
isters have placed their estimates of
current expenditure within the esti
mate of current revenue.
I pray the Almighty that you will
be guided in your deliberations by "a
just and patriotic spirit, so that the
Nation shall be benefitted by your
consultations and decisions,
Nobles and Representatives:
I now declare the Legislature of
the Kingdom opened.
