This Noble committed himself

sion of a man wholly in earnest.

position to monopolies is the only

The l O. Advertiser would give
the imprcBhion that the feeling
against the Hank Charier scheme is
confined to. two or three .orators and
one or two newspapers. This ques

man in his senses can doubt.
DR. M0TT SMITH'S COLD LAW.
The gold bill of Dr. Mott Smith
ought to be called a bill for placing
a premium on gold. It woulcVbo a
public misfortune if itbecomo a law.
The bill provides for the redemption
in TJ. S. gold of only the French and
Mexican silver, which is estimated :it
about. 500,000. This would loavo
over 81,200,000 of American and
Hawaiian silver in the country, and
with a limit of 10 for silver pay
ment, gold would immediately com
mand n premium.
Fortunately the importers, re
tailers and business men "cncrallv
arc waking up to the necessity of a 5
gold law, with gold enough and not
too much silver lo run it.
To redeem in gold the French
and Mexican silver which is intrin
sically worth more than the Sprcclc
els silver coin, is all tlinlDr. Smith's
"gold law" attempts to do, with
such half-way work as that, and a
law authorizing silver payments to

harder times than with :i silver law.
Hut we are satisfied thai no such
bill can pass, after the people have
hud time to consider its dangerous
THE GENERAL BANKING LAW.
It seems that the Sprcckels Hank
Charier is not likely to be passed.
It is said by the P. C. Advertiser
that " criticism and comment
on the Hank Charter Hill have
in some quarters, been carried bc
yond all bounds of reason and good
manners." AVhcn a formidable
monopoly like this goes beyond all
bounds of reason, and makes no
more profession of manners than does
a gentlemanly highway-man, who
in unmistakable terms, requests
your money, the apologists of tho
monopoly canno't expect the commu
nity to select the mildest words
with which to express its indignation.
That indignation has been ex
pressed, and the Advertiser may rest
assured that more than words re
main behind, if the charter is urged.
But the men who made such de
mands as the Sprcckels' Hank
Charier, will bear close watching
when they shift ground, and pro
fess to be satisfied with a law giving
everyone an equal right to do bank
ing business, if this second bank
ing Act allows Hawaiian bonds to be
deposited in lieu of a coin basis to
secure payment of the notes of the
bank, it is practically making the
holders of the 1,000,000 or so of
untaxable Hawaiian bonds, the only
persons who can do snob banking.
Tf the bank law allows bank funds
to be carried out of the country, or
to California corporations, or allows
the directors of the bank, or a con
trolling majority of them, to reside
out of the country, there is no
security for holders of the notes of
There is no necessity of a special
law to authorize a bank to make
them, and offer them to any who
wish to take them.
A general banking law coming
from such a source, will require the
closest scrutiny, to see thai it docs
not impose on the country any of
the outrageous demands which the
special bank charter makes.
FATAL ACCIDENT TO MR. CE0RCE
A terrible accident, occurred yes
terday afternoon a little before o
o'clock, resulting in the death of
Mr. George Emmes, an old and
highly respected citizen. Mr. Emmes
left his residence on Kukui street a
little before 5 o'clock -with the inten
tion of joining his family, who were
staying at Waikiki. When opposite
the Roman Catholic Church on Fort
street, one of the front, wheels of his
buggy came off, which frightened
the hor&e and started him in a full
galop, throwing Mr. Emmes out,
and having a tight hold of the reins,
was dragged a considerable distance,
lie was picked up in an insensible
condition and taken to his residence
on Kukui street, which he had left
only a few moments previous in the
full enjoyment of life. Drs. Tlagan
and MoKibbin attended him, but
nothing could be done and he ex
pired at 0:!30 o'clock. His horse,
after the accident had happened,
kept on running and turned the
corner by Dodd's stable on to Hotel
street, where he collided with Mrs.
B. F. Dillingham's carriage standing
in from of Horn's store, and was
finally stopped by a sailor from tho
Mutine. Mrs. Dillingham's horse is
naturally a very quiet one, but the
collision so startled it that it dashed
off, but was caught before getting
out of town. The shaft of tho car
riage was broken.
The deceased gentleman was sixty
years of nge, and has resided on
these islands for about thirty years.
Ho leaves a wife and three children
to mourn his loss. Mr. Enuncs was
a ship builder, his shop being in the
rear of the Fisli Market, lie was
1'. ("!. of Excelsior Lodge and O. 1).
O. S., and also connected with
Polynesia Encampment. The funeral
took place this afternoon, at'J:30,
from his late residence Kukui st.,
and wns largely attended.
ACCOUNTABILITY OF THE COMMIS
SIONERS OF CROWN LANDS.
The Commissioners of CrownLauds
hold that they are not accountable
to the Legislature for the receipts
of the Crown Lauds. A resolution
was passed early in the session order
ing them to report, but they simply
decline so to do, and put themselves
in the position of. "what are you
going to do about it."
Mr. Dole introduced a resolution
on Tuesday that the question be re
ferred to the Judges of the Supremo
Court. The resolution was defeated,
but the question is one of importance,
and we give herewith the substance
of Mr. Dole's remarks upon the
"The object of this resolution is
to obtain the opinion of the Supreme
Court in the matter of the Crown
Lands, not the opinions of His Ex
cellency the Attorney General, or of
His Excellency the Governor of
Oaliu and Maui, or of the honorable
members from Honolulu and Koo
laupoko ; these have all given their
legal opinions on the subject before
the House and they may be right
and they may be wrong. Others,
including myself, think differently,
and we may be right and we may be
wrong. There is a clear difference
of opinion, and that being the case,
it becomes proper for us to enquire
of the Supreme Court as to the law
and settle once for all this dispute.
1 am ready to accord all credit to
the ability of His Excellency the
Attorncy-Ueneral oi "smelling a
rat" or seeing a "nigger in the
fence"' as the saying is, which he
has so often showed in connection
with measures brought before the
House, but in this matter, although
he lias charged, that it covers some
hidden motive, he has, failed to
show what that, hidden motive is.
I stated in support of this resolu
tion, that it was necessary for me to
know what were His Majesty's re
venues from the Crown Lands, in
order that. T might vote intelligently
upon the question of his salary.
This was the motive of the resolu
tion, and its is a jood one. and was
not hidden from any.
His Excellency the Attorney Gen
eral has given us a long disquisition
upon royal pretogative. Has he
come two thousand miles to instruct
us about royal prerogatives ? we who
have grown up in this country ! As
a matter of fact he knows nothing
about the prerogatives of the sov
ereign except' what he has picked up
in the last few weeks ; he has been
brought up in a republic where noth
ing of the kind exists.
This matter of the responsibility
of the Crown Commissioners to the
'Legislatures does not touch the posi
tion of His Majesty the King, and I
do not. believe that he cares a cent
about it one way or the other. No
man of any self respect, be he King
or commoner could object, to such a
thing and to oppose the right of tho
Legislature to require a report of tho
Crown revenues as if publicity in
this matter might be injurious to His
Majesty is simply to degrade and
belittle the royal office. If there is
any independent position in the
Kingdom it is that of King, and the
incumbent of that office needs no
bolstering up and no concealment, as
to his revenues,
Ilis Excellency tho Attorney-General
stated that tho Crown Commis
sioners managed the Crown domain
by law for the solo use of the King.
This is not the fact. The law re
quires that the revenues of the
'Crown Lands, shall not bo drawn in
advance, this is to protect the rights
of the heir apparent, tho future
king or queen. Wo find, therefore,
that the Crown Commissioners are
the custodians of tho Crown Lands
for the benefit of the King, for the
future king or queen and for tho
public. At the last session of the
legislature, His Majesty's biennial
salary was increased by five thou-
sand dollars ; wo may be asked at
this session to increase it still fur
ther : how can we consider such a
proposition intelligently without
knowing what his Crown revenues
are ? Some of the members of this
House may be willing to work in
the dark, I am not.
As there is an honest difference
of opinion as to our right to de
mand this information, it becomes
the proper and dignified thing for
us to leave the matter to the
Supreme Court as cur umpire. If
this resolution should be passed and
the opinion of the Supreme Court
should differ from mine I would
submit, and I do those members
who disagree with me the justice lo
believe, that should the opinion of
the Supreme Court differ from
theirs, they would also gracefully
submit to it."
Tiiunso.VY. Juke 12 Continued.
Mr. Cecil Brown said, the members
of the House were all agreed .on one
point that l!)C3' want gas. The prin
cipal objection seemed to bo to
Section 12, "that Messrs. Lucas,
Elmore and Hall, have the exclusive
right for the term of twenty-five
Mr. Kauhane was in favor of in
definite postponement, we don't re
quire gas, the people have not asked
for it. Why should this Assembly
bother about a gas bill?
Mr. Dole said ho would be in favor
of the section if it would allow any
parties, instead of the three uames
Mr. Lilikalaui said the bill was a
good one. No one had ever had the
courage to present a gas bill before.
Mr. Widcmann said the gas bill is
nothing new here, it is as old as the
hills. He did not think gas would
ever bo a protuaoic business nere.
We have heard that Mr. Elmore is a
very fine fellow, am sorry I don't
know him, wish I did, for I like
good fellows. Mr. Lucas is a friend
of mine, Mr. Hall T have known
from childhood and I should like to
do them a good turn. The amend
ments he would propose to the bill
to make it favorable would be so
numerous, that it would require an
entirely new bill.
Mr. Hitchcock said he had been
informed that the promoters of the
bill Ayanted monopoly or nothing, if
so, he should oppose the bill.
At 12 o'clock the House took a
recess until 1 r.M.
On rc-asseinbling after recess, Mr.
Hitchcock said the translation dif
fered in the first section, and he
should ino'o one word in the natiA'o
translation be struck out.
Mr. W. O. Smith said that before
recess Mr. Hitchcock had said that
the company Avished monopoly or
nothing, he derived his information
from me and must have misunderstood
me. My remarks to him Avere not,
intended to carry such an idea.
Mr. Nawabi said there Avas one
very serious objection to the bill,
viz: That, upon the expiration of
lAvenlj'-fiAC years, the time fixed,
the Government, shall take the gas
Avorks and pay the original cost for
them. lie considered the gas bill a
monopoly, and if we grant one mo
nopoly Ave shall have to grant others.
Mr. Bishop said if the bill was
amended properly he Avould bo in
faA'or of it, but there are so many'
objectionable clauses that he Avas in
favor of indefinite postponement.
We are safer Avilhoul this bill than
Mr. Aholo said there avouUI be no
harm if the bill passed.
Mr. Widcmann said the bill deals
Avith an article that no one in the
country uses. There is very little
difference betAvcen it and the Hank
Bill. Both attempt to deal in a cer
tain Avay Avith the necessaries of
Mr. Baker, the introducer of the
bill, said the missionaries first brought
us clothes and made us keep our
selves clean, so it is Avith the pro
moters of the gas bill, they want to
give us gas and keep us from soiling
our hands Avith kerosene oil. Tf this
company makes bad gas we , will
have them up as common nuisances.
On a sIioav of hands being called the
indefinite postponement of Section 1
Avas lost 18 to 10, and the section
Avas finally passed.
Mr. Widemann moved that the
Avholo bill bo passed, every section,
head as well.
Mr. W. O. Smith moved tho bill
be returned to the introducer for re
construction.. At this point the
Committee rose and reported the first
section as amended and passed. The
bill Ava9 ordered to bo printed as
amended by the Select Committee.
Mr. Kalua, on suspension of the
rules, offered a resolution, that as a
certain newspaper called the Pae
Aina, had published t he following:
"That a number of female prisoners
were confined at Oahu .lail for long
sentences, and four of them Avere in
an interesting condition," the Com
mittee of Thirteen on Police do in
vestigate the matter and find if there,
is any truth in the statement.

said the proper authorities had heard
of the report, and steps had been
taken at once for investigation. A
