Twelve weeks ago the Legisla
ture met and lias been' in session
ever since. It was composed of
twenty-eight representatives, twenty
nobles and four Ministers, in all
Of the nobles, one is a confirmed
invalid and unable to attend, one
(Kapena) is a Minister, and one is
President. So that there have been
forty-nine working members.
The session began with all fresh
and eager r the representatives ap
peared in earnest and determined to
work, and the Ministers were confi
dent and haughty.
Of the representatives, a majority
were elected on their declarations of
independence and zeal for the pub
lie good. Soon the Ministers meas
ured their men, and with the aid of
ollices judiciously bestowed, and the
influences operated by means of
Mr. Gibson's free eating house,
fourteen of the representatives were
secured by the Government as firm
adherents. For various reasons one
half of the nobles have supported
the Ministry, and the other half
have been independent. So the
Ministers by their own votes have
held a majority in the House.
And it lias been a steady deter
mined fight. The opposition out
numbered and out voted have main
tained a continuous warfare against
corruption and in i s government.
With right on their side, and con
scious of the support of the great
body of the people they have con
tended for constitutional Govern
ment, and the preservation of the
integrity of the throne.
Frauds, corruption, nepotism and
illegal acts have been unearthed and
condemned; hypocrisy and shams
have been exposed ; and purity in
the administration of public affairs
has been demanded with a spirit
which lias not been dismayed by
The end has not yet come, but we
already see a disorganized Min
isterial party led on by an old
broken down man, with discom
forture and disappointment depicted
on every wrinkle of his distracted
countenance; while the opposition
with relentless energy comes to its
task each day with the same spirit
of determination. This opposition
which has contended against great
odds, has gained step by step, and
although it has yet much to accom
plish, there is no question as to the
final result. It must and will
HON. GODFREY RHODES.
The country owes much to the
Honorable Godfrey Rhodes, Presi
dent of the Legislative Assembly,
lie is too well-known to the whole
community of the Islands to need
any eulogy at our hands, but his
manly and patriotic course as
speaker of the House has been such,
at this time of public trial, that all
friends of the country are under
obligations to him. His impartial
ity and integrity have boon above
reproach; a man of deep feelings
and warm impulses, there has been
much to tax his patience and try his
soul, tbut he has commanded the
respect of all. He is fearless in his
performance of duty, and loyal to
the core. With full knowledge of the
baseness and treachery of the
leader of the Ministry he has
guarded the purity of the proceed
ings of the Assembly with the great
Able, loyal and ever at his post,
lie is a worthy servant of the people
and an honor to the high post he
occupies. It were well if Hawaii
had more such men in her councils.
Of all contemptible men a sneak
is the most despicable.
The Cabinet Ministers are sneaks.
They have been rebuked by His
Majesty for their extravagance ; and
they reply, it is not our fault; you
knew all about it yourself.
There is honor even among thieves,
but the Minister of Foreign Affairs
and the Attorney General can dis
count that honorable fraternity. The
expenditure of the Japanese immi
gration fund to pay up back expenses
of the City of Paris is so utterly in
excusable, that a scape goat must
be found. Accordingly, the organ
makes the statement that Mr. Gu
lick alone is responsible, and Mr.
Neumann and Mr. Gibson have botli
stated in private conversation that
it was all Gulick's fault, and that
they knew nothing about it. Mr.
Gibson and Mr. Neumann you arc
sneaks ! The Cabinet is responsible
for the acts of the Ministers, and
your plea of ignorance is too thin.
Shows himself ever ready to throw
blame on some one else, and by
evasion and prevarication to avoid
the responsibility of his own acts.
Last Saturday, however, was the
first time that he has attempted to
shift responsibility upon the should
ers of His Majesty. He stood up
in ins character of head of the
Cabinet, and stated that the Cabinet
were not at fault on .account of the
excessive appropriation bill, because
the King had seen and approved of
the Hill before it was presented to the
What has the King to do with the
making up of the Appropriation
Bill? Mr. Gibson would have us
understand that the King wanted
salaries raised ; that the King
wanted two more secretaries in the
Foreign Oilice ; that it was the King
that dictated this that and the other,
and he the poor irresponsible head
of the Cabinet had to do as he was
told. Probably it was by orders of
the King also that the salaries of
Kaulukou and Aliolo, and all the
other District Judges were raised,
in excess of the Ministerial estimate,
and that the Ministers voted solid
for such increase.
It is no use, Mr. Gibson, for you
to try to sneak out of responsibility,
and avoid the very duty which the
constitution places upon you. The
constitution exempts the King from
responsibility, and specially says
that "the Ministers are responsible,"
and you cannot evade responsibility
by trying to saddle it off on the
King or any one else.
MR. J. S. WALKER.
Mr. J. S. Walker, Auditor Gene
ral, voted yesterday with the Minis
ters against the report of censure for
their illegal appropriation of money.
The wrong doing was so clear and
so inexcusable, that there remains
no possible defense for Mr. Walker's
He has shown himself to be weak,
debased, and dangerous. With the
history of his course during the past
two years this community can never
trust him again in ofllce. By his
kindly ways, friendliness, and family
connections ho will still preserve
friends in social life, but as a public
olllccr all confidence in him has gone. J
So far jis the public interests are
concerned ho is more dangerous in
his ofllce than an open enemy. The
ofllce of Auditor was created for the
express purpose of preventing any
illegal disbursement of the public
funds ; to be a check on all the dis
bursing ofilccra of the Government.
But he has not only permitted the
grossest breaches of the law to be
made, but votes to cover them over,
iinu this in defiance of the law and
in the face of the community.
A distorted idea of loyalty to his
decrepit friend Mr. Gibson, seems in
his mind to justify any dereliction
in public duty however flagrant.
The Advertiser states this morning
that in 1878 a vote of want of con
fidence in the Ministry was defeated
by 2ti to 19, and that they were
censured by 24 to 17. The first
statement is correct. The second
is incorrect. No vote of censure
was passed, and none was attempted.
Monday, July 21 Continued.
On rc-asscmbling after recess Mr.
Bishop, chairman of the committee
on education, reported on petitions
praying for English schools on Lanai
and at Makawao, and recommended
their reference to the Board of Edu
Minister Gibson submitted addi
tional matter relating to the leper
settlement, moving it be printed.
Mr. Hitchcock, from the Select
Committee on immigration, submit
ted a report, recommending that
Portuguese immigration be sus
pended and Japanese be encouraged,
and that an appropriation of $800,
000 bo made for immigration pur
pose, which would cover present
obligations and leave $100,000 for
the service in the current period of
Mr. W. O. Smith moved the report
be taken up with the Appropriation
Bill. While the House was manifestly
in favor of Japanese immigration, it
would not be wise to confine the
country to that source of supply in
case it should fail.
Minister Gibson seconded the
motion, which carried.
Minister Neumann, in answer to
Mr. Smith, promised a report on
criminal expenses on Wednesday.
Minister Gulick, in answer to Mr.
Frank Brown, promised reports re
garding case of public lands in the
course of the week.
Minister Neumann introduced a
bill to amend Section 4, Chapter 3G,
of the Penal Code, relating to com
mon nuisances. It deals with street
obstruction, awnings, etc., and
enacts that telephone or telegraph
wires shall not be lining less than
twenty feet from the ground.
Mr. Smith moved that the Minister
of the Interior state to the House by
what means he proposes to make
good to the several districts of the
Kingdom the sum of 147,905.87 of
road tax now supposed to be in the
Treasury. Inasmuch as there is
nothing in the Appropriation Bill
now before the House to provide for
the paying to the several districts
their respective proportion of the
same, and provision is only made
for the disbursement of the road tax
collected during the coming bennial
OHDEIt OF THE DAY.
Consideration of the Appropriation
Bill in Committee of the Whole.
Mr. Pilipo supposed that in con
sequence of the King's message the
Assembly should go back to the
beginning of the Bill.
Minister Kapena said he proposed
to go on from where thoy left off,
and on the third reading to recon
sider the items passed.
Mr. Dole called for revised Ap
propriation Bill. Does the Minister
of Finance propose to make us wade
through work that will have to be
done over again? That would be
folly. He would therefore move
that this matter be postponed until
the revised Appropriation Bill be
Mr. W. O. Smith said that what
ever trilling there was previously
there was no trifling last Friday. He
had not His Majesty's message of
that day before him, but if ho re
membered rightly it recommended
that the Assembly should make re
ductions to be recommended by his
Minister of Finance Now, where
are they? Wc must have them of
the Ministry will stand before this
House more condemned than ever.
They were here to do men's work or
it was all child's phvy and a farce.
Minister Kapena said thoy wore
ready to go to work, but could not
accomplish anything with this talk,
talk, talk. The revised estimates
were here now. After a tedious dis
cussion of a point of order relating
to the mode of procedure, several
motions being before the House,
Air. Wilder said lie understood the
main motion to be to have the re
duced estimates read and printed,"
and he accordingly moved the pre
vious question, which, together with
the motion was carried.
Minister Kapena then read the
estimates with amendments, as fol

Mr. Wilder gave explanations of
the transaction, showing that his
motive was to prevent a wrong to the

CLEVELAND AND HENDRICKS
Are the Democratic nominations of
President and vice President of the
United States. The Daily Aha
of June 11th says: The scene in
the Democratic National Convention
this morning when Cleveland was
declared nominated for President
was the grandest ever witnessed in
a political convention. Indeed, the
occasion was an anomalous one.
The nomination of a candidate on a
second ballot under the operation of
the two-thirds rule is unprecedented,
and in itself bears evidence of the
substantial harmony which prevails
throughout the parly. Of course
there was a small minority which
contended to the last for other can
didates. Of course there were indi
vidual delegates who thought their
own favorite the only man who
could carry the country. But when,
in a great convention numbering
over eight hundred members, re
presenting every section of the Union
and all its varied interests, nearly
seven hundred of them seven
eighths of the entire assemblage
unite on a second ballot in designa
ting one man as their choice, it is an
indication of popularity of which
any man living may well feel proud.
More than that, it indicates that the
great party here represented is uni
ted in its preference for the man now
placed ut the head of the ticket.
The result of the second ballot was
as follows; whole number of votes
cast, 800; necessary to a choice,

Thomas A. Hendricks was nomi

LATE FOREIGN NEWS.
