.Mr. Kniilukou presented the mino
rity report of the Committee to con
sider an Act to regulate the police
department of the Kingdom. The
minority were of opinion that the
bill, if passed, would lie a great
benefit to the public and the country.
The report wns laid on the table.
Minister Neumann gave a -verbal
answer to 'the resolution asking for
his opinion, as to the legality of a
certain lease of water rights to Clans
Spreckels in Ilamakua, Hawaii, say
ing Mr. Spreckels had called at his
ofllcc and offered to surrender the
lease, if the House desired, upon
condition of being refunded the rent
so far paid, accepting for hinmelf
the loss of 83,000 paid for surveying
the property. If the House accepted
this proposal, the Attorney General
thought his opinion as to the legality
of the lease was not ncccssaiy.
A discussion ensued, in the course
of which 3Iinistcr Neumann was
pressed for his opinion in terms of
the resolution, and he at length gave
it, first verbally and then in writing,
to the effect that the lease was per
fectly valid in law. He said Mr.
Sprcckcls's action had been taken on
account of the course pursued by
certain journals and members of tho
Mr. Nawahi looked upon il as
anomalous that the lease should be
given up while file Attorney General
was of opinion that it was legal.
Mr. Iscnberg explained the situa
tion with the laconic observation
that "water would not run up hill."
Several motions, were upon dis
cussion reduced to one that the
Attorney General be instructed to
have 'the lease cancelled, which
passed. The written opinion of the
Attorney General was laid upon the

"The amount put into the Budget
for 'Support of Hawaiian and Eng

have been inserted without nny
thought or calcution except to pre
sent to the Legislative Assembly a
bill which should on its face appear
to have been dictated by a regard
for economy ; for examination into
the current expenses of the Bureau
shows that, to carry on the schools as
now established, and such new ones
as arc already contemplated and
necessary, to increase a little the pay
of some of the most deserving
teachers, and leave a moderate sum
to meet unforsecn demands, will
require an appropriation of 8100,
000. "The law says there shall bo a Board
of Education consisting of five per
sons, one of whom shall be its Presi
dent ; and the intention no doubt is,
that they shall he men whoso judg
ment and advice shall have value,
and who will take an interest in the
work to be done, and strictly carry
out the law. The President is not
authorized to do anything by him
self, except to appoint a Secretary
for the Board, and to sign ofilcial
documents authorized by the Board.
The Board should be kept full, and
no business of importance done by
less than a majority of its members.
Such has been the condition and
practice up to a recent date. The
President lias no more right to fix
or change salaries of teachers, or to
change the terms of vacations of the
schools, or to appoint holidays than
any other member of tho Board has,
and the assumptions of any such
power must lead to the withdrawal of
the independent and most valuable
members, and leave the authority in
the hands of less efilcient and con
scientious members. "Were the law
to be so changed as to admit of ap
pointing to membership of the Board,
other than members of the Privy
Council, it would givo a wider range
for choice, and would probably be
"During the last year a teacher who
had not been in tho service of the
Board was employed as an assistant
in one of the schools oir a salary
double that of the best of the female
teachers who had pcrvcd many years.
It was an injustice to tho other
teachers, an improper use of public
funds, mid although the pay of other
teachers in Honolulu m as consider
ably raised in order to satisfy them,
tho feeling of discontent and that
wrong had been done, has not en
tirely pessed away. Had the matter
been duly submitted to a properly
constituted Board, such action could'
