AN EXPLANATION WANTED.
A resolution was yesterday intro
duced in the Legislature, by J. "W.
Kalua, of Lahaina, that all engross
ing be under the supervision of a
committee appointed for that pur
pose. In the discussion which fol
lowed J. Nawahi, of Ililo, supported
the resolution, and stated that he
knew it to be a fact that at the
session of 1882, the secretary had
let out the engrossing at 25 cents a
folio, charged the Assembly 50 cents
a folio and pocketed the difference.
This is an exceedingly serious charge
to' make against an officer occupying
a position of so much responsibility
and trust as that of Secretary of the
Mr. Pierce, for the sake of his
own reputation, should either deny
or explain it.
THE REPORT OF THE MINISTER
We have received a pamphlet con
taining many erasures and reel ink
changes, styled the Report- of the
Minister of Finance to the Legisla
ture of 1884.
Such a document should, of all
things, be correct in its figures rfhd
statements of fact, and it goes with
out sayingr that His Majesty's Min
isters should at all times maintain a
semblance of dignity, even though
such quality be lacking in fact.
We have notyct had time to digest
the mysteries of tho whole report,
but that portion of it which refers to
the currency, recommends itself to
special notice as being a choice
specimen of literature. It combines
the sea lawyers readiness to state
unsupported facts, on which subse
quent argument is based, with a
flippant reportorial stylo of expres
sion, which will undoubtedly greatly
assist the members to comprehend
In speaking of tho now coinage,
the report goes on to say: "This
step of the Government appears to
have given Borne of its internal
enemies umbrage; all manner of
dire results were predicted from it;
all manner of evils, no matter from
what they arose were attributed to
this action of the Government.
Notably, the increase iu tho price of
exchange was an evil laid at the
door of tho action of the Govern
ment. If a private individual had
introduced into the Kingdom a half
million of silver coin of the United
States, the rate of exchange would
havo been the same as it is now, and
nothing would havo been changed
except, that a reason for caviling and j
maligning the administration would
havo been wanting."
This is a mis-statoment of fact,
for the reason that Wells, Fargo &
Co. are now takiug large quantities
of United States silver coin to San
Francisco on account of Honolulu
merchants, nt a charge of only one
per cent., including insurance. If,
therefore, $500,000 in United States
silver had been introduced into tho
Kingdom, Honolulu merchants owing
debts in San Francisco would have
paid them by shipping the coin at an
expense of one per cent, instead of
paying six per cent, exchange. As
the Hawaiian coin is worth, in San
Francisco, only its bullion value, it
cannot be shipped to San Francisco
except at a loss.
The paragraph above quoted is
further more a shamefully weak and
inappropriate expression .of personal
fecl.ng, entirely uncalled for and out
of place, and derogatory to the
dignity of the ofllccr who fathers it,
the ofllca which he represents, and
the assembly to which it is addressed.

for one office to havo priuting to the

only received to the amount of
$1100; He knew the P. C. Ad
vertiser office was owned by the
Minister of Foreign Affairs, but he
did not wish to intimate anything,

have been more equally divided.

many members were surprised at
the large expense, after some further
discussion the report was adopted.

tiser. Mr. Kaulnkou said that as papers
had been laid on the members table
every morning there was no need of
the resolution. The press had begun
the scs'sion with liberal idpas, and he
had no doubt it was partly from the
fact that their reporters had the best
seats in the House that they wished
to show their liberality by furnishing
papers. He moved the motion be
Mr. Richardson said he had in
struction from his constituents to
keep down expenses. If we vote for
the papers a large amount will be
paid for nothing but rubbish.
Mr. Nawahi said he was the father
of the resolution. He wants to know
what is going on, and he can only
obtain such information tbroimh the

we had better not have writing
