stated that the pay of Tax Assessor
hail been raised throughout the
islands. This statement is also
without foundation, as the pay of
Tax Collectors and Assessors was
only raised in nine districts. These
areas follows: Honolulu, Koolnu

Willi reference to His Excellency,
e Minister of Finance's statement,
concerning the resolution of the
Cabinet Council authorizing a draft
upon the Loan Fund for S'Jii.OOO,
which he maintains was perfectly
correct, I should like to ask his
Excellency what loan funds wore
then in the Treasury? By his report
ho informs us that 8530,000 worth
of bonds had been sold. lie also
informs us by the same valuable re
port that 8830,018 1)8 had already
been disbursed from that fund. Now,
I should like to know whore the
895,000 were to conic from? It is
thus demonstrated that the Loan
Fund at that time owed the Hawaiian
Treasury the sum of $300,000.
Under this resolution, of 895,000
the sum of 8G2,090 was drawn from
the Treasury for Government build
ings and hospitals, telephones and
telegcaphs,. How was this 11101103' ex
pended? Was it expended for the
purposes for which it was drawn? A
reference to page 17 of the iinance
report will show the House for what
it was expended, The Hawaiian Car
riage Company got 81,09 08; Mr.
George Lucas received on accont of
a contract $7,3(8 03; Lovejoy &
Co., for the cancellation of the lease
of their premises on Merchant street,
were paid $2,250; Geo. W. Mac
f arlane & Co. , for warfage on water
pipe and interest on drafts, payment
of which had been refused, were paid
83,2G5 50, and the pacfic Bridge
Compaivy got 8500.
I don't propose, Mr. Chairman,
to devote vei'3T much time to the
remarks of His Excellency the Min
ister of Foreign Affaiis. His verbo
sity is proverbial, and he has not
gone behind his record on this occa
sion, lie has talked a great deal
and said little. He would divert the
attention of the House from matters
of grave importance to indulge in
the puerile discussion of things of a
trivial nature. lie talks turkey at
3.50 a bird, and avoids the subject
of the disgraceful duplication of the
Advertiser's bills. He also grew
lachrymose in the touching defense
of the corsets and the bustle which
were supposed in his sense of poll
tical 0001101113', to pay for $2,000
worth of kahilis at the coronation.
If these items, Mr. Chairman, had
been charged to the coronation ac
count, the Committee of Finance
would never have alluded to them,
but these articles were charged to
the incidentals of the Foreign Oflice,
and that is what has raised the ire of
the committee and that of every
honest member of the Assembly.
And appropriation was made to
defray the expenses of the coronation
of His Majesty. God save the King !
If the annronriation was not suffi
cient for the purpose intended, why
did not the Ministers charge every
penny expended for Unit laudable
purpose to the proper account, and
then come before this House for
indemnity. And, Mr. Chairman,
there is not a patriotic member of
this House who 'would not have
cheerfully given his vote for that
object. But what did they do?
They attempted to conceal and hide
their actions by spreading their dis
bursements for the coronation over
several appropriations, as if they
wore ashamed of what they were
doing. Honesty is the b.est policy,
and if the Ministry hacb followed
thot old adage, these remarks would
have been unnecessry.
The Minister of Foreign Affairs
has said that wo have hunted the
vouchers in his office as though we
were hunting for a needle in a hay
stack. I thank him for the simile,
for I- can assure this House that
looking for any document in that
office is very much like trying to find
a needle in a hay stack. It is even
worse than the biblical parable about
trying to pass a camel through the
eye of a needle, for the camel's task
would be inUnately easier than that
of the searcher after truth in the
oflice of the Minister of Foreign
Affairs. Diogenes would not have
given up the job ; he would never
have undertaken it. With reference
10 the charge of 8G30 for a book of
rules for volunteers, His Excellency
calls it u reasonable charge. Now I
should stigmatize it and brand it as
highway robbery. Is lucre any
member of the House who would like
to pay six hundred and thirty cents
for a gross of these valuable books?
This disbmsment was not approved
by the proper authorities, but it was
probably pushed through by the
Minister ol Foreign Affairs at a time
when business was dull in his news
With regard to the remarks of His
Excellency the Minister of the In
terior, I beg to say that they meet
with my unqualified appropal. In a
manly and straightforward way, in
marked contrast to the subterfuges
indulged in by his colleagues, he.
qbnies boldly forward and indorses
our report. For this I give him all
honor. The only thing I have to re
grot, Mr. Chairman, is that I find
him constrained 03' circumstaticcs to
consort with such unworthy associ
ates. Knowing him as I do, I feel
that no one can appreciate his un
fortunate position more than him
self. The Minister scorn to be rather
chagrined that no positive charge of
embezzlement has been brought
against him. I should like to ask
what has become of the 8500 over
drawn on the salary of the Minister
and his clerk deny the receipt of it,
although the voucher is in the Treas
ury and the 11101103' has been paid.
Mr. Chairman, here I rest for the
present ; but, in conclusion, I should
like to refer to an unmanly slur
which has been cast on a member of
this Committee b3' the Minister of
Foreign Affairs. I allude to the
remarks of His Exeellcncjr yester
day about the Hon. Mr. Keau. His
Excellency stated thai he was an
ignorant man, and did not under
stand accounts in the English lan
guage. Now, I can assure His Ex
cellenc3 that the knowledge which
Mr. Keau possesses of the English
language is infinitely greater than
the knowledge of the Minister of
Foreign Affairs of the Hawaiian
tongue. The Honorable member
for Honolulu is well-known in this
community. He is an active busi
ness man, and has been elected
three times in the Legislative As
sembly of this Kingdom from the
the most important constituency of
the countr3r. To brand sush a man
as an ignoramus is the act of a
