We commented in what may have
been unnocessarity severe terms,
yesterday, upon the promoters of the
Lottery Bill. We did so under the
conviction that the interests of the
public demanded a vigorous treat
ment of the measure, and without
personal animosity towards the pro
moters.. Had we known that the bill was
to be withdrawn to-day, the article
would not have been written. In
view of the fact that the promoters
of the Lottery Bill have themselves
voluntarily withdrawn it, they arc
entitled to due credit therefore, and
we, in common with the rest of the
community, are willing to give them
credit for having acted in the best
interests of the communit' in so

THE EFFECT OF THE MESSACE ON THE
There is only one conclusion that
can be drawn from the King's
message, and that is, that he hn8 no
confidence in the Ministry. He
states in so many words that he does
not approve of the estimates that
they have made. That they arc
greater than the financial condition
of the country will justify. When
we. take into consideration that not
only is the appropriation bill as
estimated by tho Cabinet, a million
and a half or more in excess of the
estimated receipts, but that the
Ministers have been voting solid in
favor of every motion to increase
salaries to a figure yet higher even
thru that proposed by them in their
budget, Ihc rebuke is even more
direct atul humiliating. Tho only
honorable course for the Ministers
to pursue to to resign. "We have no
oxpection, however, of any such re
sult. The Turkey Cabinet is not made
of the stuff that takes hints, or that
is subject to the ordinary rules of
honor, and we expect to sec them
stick to their dishonoicd olliccs
until the' arc forced to give them
up. Walter Murray and his patrio
tic cnlleagues believe that "while
their' s life there's hope."
The message of the King to the
Assembly expresses a noble senti
ment. In all history we do not know of
another instance in which a King has
voluntarily asked that a reduction in
his own allowance be made. The
key note to our present situation is
retrenchment, economy; and His
Majesty has struck the full cord.
We give him full credit and praise
for his intent and his action. It gives
those who have been struggling for
economy, and a reduction in the
Appropriation Bill, renewed hope,
courage and strength.
We do not wish to detract one
iota from the honor and praise which
is his due for the kingly act, and in
all that we may say in regard to the
manner of conveying the message to
the Assembly, we do not for one
moment lose sight of the generous
feeling which inspired His Majesty.
But our responsibility as public
journalists docs not allow us to pass
without comment, and disappiovcd,
the manner in which the act has
So long as there is a Cabinet in
whom His Majesty has confidence,
he should at all times act through
them and with their advice. We
arc informed that His Majesty acted
in this matter without consultation
with the Ministers. This was not
right. It tends to lessen the respon
sibility of the Mi-iisters, and to take
from them the powers which the
Constitution intends should be vested
If the King has not confidence in
the Cabinet, and his action indicates
as much, he should ask them to
But a respect for the confidential
relation which exists between His
Majesty and the. Cabinet, and for
the honor of the position which the
Ministers occupy, requires that
measures of this kind should be pre
sented to the Assembly through the
Cabinet, and not over their heads
and without their knowledge.
MR. DOLE'S SPEECH
To the King, delivered last night in
front of the Palace, was a masterly
effort. He arose to the occasion
and did full justice to it. In a clear
loud voice, and unfaltering manner,
he arraigned the course of the
Ministry, and spoke the sentiment
of the community to his Majesty,
face to face.
His Majesty and the people of
this Kingdom, may deem themselves
fortunate in numbering such a man
among the membeis of the Legisla
ture. Would that the spirit dis
plaj'ed by him and his partriotic
colleagues were an index of the
spirit of the Legislature as a whole.
Were it so, His Majesty would have
no occasion to deliver such a mes
sage to the Legislature as he yester
day considered necessary.
Grand Torchlight Procession,
in Honor of His Majesty.
The grand torchlight procession
last evening, in honor of the noble
action of His Majest the King, as
expressed in His Royal message to
the Legislative Assembly, was a
grand success. Shortly after seven
o'clock a large crowd commenced
gathering at the Bell Tower, and at
7.-15 the procession started in the
Hon. W. 0. Smith, Marshal;
Royal Hawaiian Band, Nobles and
Representatives, two by two ; Two
hundred torch bearers.
On passing Messrs. Benson, Smith
& Co.'s store that popular firm
made a grand display of colored
fire. Arriving at the Pa 1 a c e
grounds, t h e vast assemblage
formed itself into a semi-circle in
front of the building. His Majesty
stood on the steps of the Palace,
having on his right Chief Justice
Judd, Mr. Clans Sprcckels, 'Minister
Gulick and several representatives,
while on his left were Minister Gib
son. Messrs. J. D. Sprcckels, W.
G. Irwin, Hon. G. W. Macfarlane
and Hon. SamM Parker. Col. Judd
was in attendance upon His Majesty.
As soon as the band stopped playing
Hon. S. B. Dole approached the
foot of the steps and spoke as
"May it Please Youu Majesty:
It may seem a matter of common
place for me to say that the interests
of rulers and the people arc one and
the same. But there arc times in the
history of nations when the ruler is
at variance with the people, and those
arc times of national weakness,
danger, and disaster ; and there arc
times when rulers recognize the fact
that they arc the stewards of the
people, the trustees of the State ; and
those arc times of national strength
"The address from the Throne at
the beginning of the present session
of the Legislature, recommended to
the Assembly economy in tho finan
cial administration of affairs. That
part of the Legislature know as the
Opposition have loyally endeavored,
against great odds, to carry out this
policy of economy suggested by the
speech from the Throne, and thereby
to save the country from the results
of extravagance and possible bank
ruptcy. Your Majesty's Ministers,
by their large cslimatces of expendi
ture made regardless of Your Ma
jesty's policy, and supported by
their large following, have made this
effort a matter of great difficulty.
Your Majesty's loyal Opposition
have endeavored, by their voices
and their votes, day after day, to
accomplished this, and they may
be pardoned if m this long,
apparently fruitless struggle,
outnumbered and outvoted, they
have at times felt discouraged in
their hopes of accomplishing a defi
nite policy of economy for the safety
of the country. And when to-day
Your Majesty's message came to the
Assembly, again recommending an
economical administration of affairs,
it was like the hand-grasp of a friend
in time of trouble ; and this is why
we arc here to-night, to thank and
congratulate Your Majesty for this
positive and statesmanlike act. We
are not here to use words of flattery
to any one ; we feel too deeply for
that, but, in the name of the Oppo
sition and of the people of these
islands, represented by these torch
bearers and all those present, assure
Your Majesty of our loyal support in
carrying out your expressed policy.
We now feel renewed courage for the
work, and hand-in-hand with Your
Majesty, we are ready to go on and
do our best for the wise administra
tion of public affairs, and to give
our little country the position that it
is entitled to and can hold among
the nations. Our national motto
uat mau ke eu o ha aiva I sapono,
engraved in stone on yonder building
represents a principle that is stronger
for our protection and the continuance
of the throne than any army or navy.
In the spirit of this principle we arc
ready to work on with loyalty to
Your Majesty and to the people we
represent. God save the King!"
The Hon. gentleman than called for
three cheers for His Majesty, which
were given with a will by the large
assemblage and the band played the

His Majesty as follows :
lion. J. W. Kalua then stepped
forward and said: "Your Majesty
the King : With a heart full of joy,
I am asked as a Representative, and
a servant of the people to come be
fore Your Majesty to-night. I have
occupied a position upon the side of
the independent party, in the present
session of the Legislature, and have
contended with your Ministers con
cerning the spending of the public
money. Wo have striven in behalf
of the people, for the right and for
the advancement of your Kingdom,
but wo had well nigh lost hope as to
the result, by reason of the manner
in which your Ministers have . con

day, in consequence of your royal
command, wo are encouraged and
gladdened, for you have signified
that you are in sympathy with us,
and have informed the Legislature
of your desire that the expenses bo
reduced and made less than the re

party in tho Legislature, represent

you to express their gratitude to you
and their confidence in yon.

"Representatives Dole and
Kalua : I have listened with a great
deal of pleasure to what you have
stated. AVhat you have said in
regard to their being an opposition
in the legislature is true. There
are differences of opinion every
where. But so far as a desire for
retrenchment is concerned, I "am
glad from what you sny that there
is but one opinion. In regard to
my message which you appreciate
so highly, and for which 3011 are
doing me this honor, it is one of the
duties of 1113 oilicc to watch over
the interests of 1113 people and pro
tect them from harm, and I shall
ever continue to do so."

speech, three more rousing cheers
were given and the procession left

Satuuday, July 19.
The House met at 10 a. jr.
After prayer by the Chaplain, the
minutes of the preceding daj' were
read and adopted.
Mr. Bishop presented a general
report from the Committee on Edu
cation. The report sa3's that tho
present system of education is work
ing well and considerable progress
has been made. The appropriation
should be increased to $100,000 so
as to increase the salaries of good
teachers and to meet other unforseen
demands. It goes on to say that
the Board of Education according
to law shall consist of live members,
one of whom shall be President, who

appoint a Secretary and sign official
documents authorized by the Board.
Such has been the condition and

the opening of this session of the
Legislative Assembly, bill the largo
estimates submitted to us by Your
Majesty's Ministers have been ob
stacles to our carrying out Your
Majesty's icoommcndations as com
pletely as could be desired.
We agree with Yout Majesty, that
the unfavorable financial prospects
of the country call for retrenchment
in the expenses of tho administration
of public affairs, and in view of
Your consistent and noble sugges

begin from the head of the Civil
list, we promise our faithful and
impartial consideration of the reduc
tion that shall be submitted to us by
Your Majesty's Minister of Finance.
Wc feel assured that Your Ma
jesty's policy in financial administra

warm response from all Hawaiian
citizens and residents and will go
far to avert the disastrous conse

the accompanying business depres

to Your gracious wishes, we com

Minister Gibson moved the rcpty

would sa3r he thought it unnoecssaiy
for the committee to insert airylhing
about the Appropriation Bill. The bill
had been before His Majest3, and
at the time the estimates were made
a depression was not so much ex
pected as now.
Mr. Nawahi seconded the motion
to accept the repl3'. He was sorry
the wa3 the message came in, through
a special messenger instead of
through the Ministers. The frequent
coming in of these messages, other
wise than through the Ministers, will
establish a bad precedent. He did
not find fault with the message, but
the way it was brought in.
The repl3 was adopted and the
President appointed the following
committee to present it to His Ma

Smith, Pilipo, Kaulukou, Clcghorn,
Kalua, Kauhane, and Kupihca.
Mr. Aholo asked leave to withdraw
the Hawaiian Endowment Associa

the bill was given him to present,
and was explained 'to him, but on
reading it through in tho House he

approve of himself. Owing to his
having introduced the bill, his best
friends appeared to have shunned
him, and it caused him a great deal
Mr. Kaulukou said fliat owing to
his support of this bill his old teacher
passed him by without speaking to
him, something he did not like.
Mr. Dole offered an amendment
that the bill he made special order
of the day for Tuesday. The reasons
that their friends are down on them
is no reason for its withdrawal. We
are here to consider bills on their
merit. They arc the property of
this House, not of the introducer.

of this House and the nation. Our

was stationed on the wharf and dis
coursed some excellent music. The
large number of invited guests were
received b3 the Hon. Noble Macfar
