THE NEW CABINET.
It is a foregone conclusion that
the Cabinet is goin out. The namesg
most prominently mentioned as suc
cessors thereto arc S. G. Wilder,
Sam. Parker, J. Mott Smith and E.
Preston or Paul.Ncumann. We are
not for or against any man or men,
but arc working for a change which
will replace men who arc of acknow
ledged inability and evil tendencies
with those who have ability and the
desire to act for the public good.
To satisfy the people there must not
only be a change of men but a
change of principles. No Cabinet
which represents anyone man, or
any set of men will be acceptable to
the country nor receive its support.
"What we want is a Cabinet consist
ing of men who .will consider them
selves the peoples trustees, to work
for the public good, and not to sub
serve the interests of any man or
Gives a ministerial slate this morn
ing, consisting of Daniel Lyons,
Sereno Bishop, J. Nawahi and W.
O. Smith. No doubt the pordcrous
wit of the organ considers this a
joke. If the public could be assured
of as good a Cabinet there would be
a general feeling of relief. The
above named men would be infinitely
superior to the present incompetent
lawless quartette, and with a fair
amount of ability would combine
common honesty and a desire to
work for the public good, qualities
aims which arc entirely lacking in
the present Cabinet.
REPORT OF THE BOARD OF GENE
ALOGY. "There is more than one way to
kill a cat besides stuffing it with
jbutter." And there is more than
one way to get money out the
Treasury for private use than by
passing an appropriation for that
About the greatest farce that has
yet made its appearance in this
Legislature, is the above report,
presented to the Assembly yester
day. Like the Report to the Board
- of the Board of Health, only enough
copies were printed for the inside
circle, and the public are to be shut
off from the grand fund of knowledge
which has been collected, and which
they have paid for.
The plain English of the matter
is, that Poomaikalani, the Queen's
aister, had no salary provided for
her support, and as there was no
vacant position which she could
'nominally fill, and draw the salary
of, the fertile brain of Mr. Gibson
concocted this genealogy scheme,
and ho being the power supremo at
the session of 1882, $10,000 was set

What Joseph Sykes Webb received
for writing the report does not ap
pear in the list of expenses of the
Board, but it has probably been
charged to apprehension of Ciimi
nals or expenses of the Loan Act,
or some kindred appropriation.
The report consists of 2 pages of
rules governing the Boaul, one of
which is that the Board shall not
work more than six days In a week ;
I pages of names of nicies ; page
of names of people who have gene
alogies and J- page of names of those
who have none, but wish they had ;
2 pages of names of chiefs whose
bones cither have or have not been
found ; and 20 pages of a rehash of
and additions to Mr. Webb's recent
article in the Hawaiian Monthly,
concerning the probability, or im
probability of a Pacific Continent.
It is a matter of intcicst, but what
it has to do with the genealogy of
Hawaiian Chiefb is something that it
will take a "Cabinet Resolution" or
nu Act of the Legislature to find
The statement is made that "There
is a certain mystery involved with
the conflicting stories connected with
the depository of the rciffiins of
Kamehamcha I, but the Board is
11010 on a trail in which they hope
to be siiMCMful."
There are two hopes left to the
tax payer ; one is that that trail will
give out before the Appropriation
Bill is passed ; and the other, that it
will keep on for so long that the
Board will follow it so far that they
will not get back in time to sign airy
The Board of Genealogy is un
doubtedly one of the bulwarks of
our liberties, and the Legislature
should deal liberally with it. We
should not object if as much as 1.75
was appropriated. But the Legisla
ture has a record for economy, and
wc may have to take less.
FitiDAY, July 25.
The House met at 10 a. ji.
After prayer by the' Chaplain, the
minutes of the preceding day were
read and adopted.
The rules were suspended to per
mit Mr. Palohau to present the peti

Honolulu, praying for the laying of
water pipes to that part of the town.
Referred to the Minister of the In

Board of Genealogy of Hawaiian

Minister Gulick also presented
answer to resolution of Mr. Dole,
asking where the balance of unex

were in the Treasury.
Mr. Dole pointed out an apparent
inconsistency between the Minister's
answer and the Finance Minister's

the seeming discrepancy simply
arose from dates of entries in the

Mr. Dole moved the suspension of
the rules for the second reading of
his bill by its title, which carried,
and the bill was made the order of
the day in Committee of the Whole
on Tuesday next.
Mr. Iscnberg's bill went through
a similar process, and will be con
sidered along with Mr. Dole's bill.
By leave Mr. Dole presented
reports of the Judiciary Committee
upon sundry petitions.
In reference to one relating to
certain fishes, it was recommended
that it be considered in conjunction
with bills upon the subject. That
of residents of Waianae, asking to
be paid for road work, was recom
mended to be referred to the Minister
of the Interior. A petition for the
removal of the Chinese Theatre was
deemed to refer to a matter that
should be .settled in the courts, and
it was recommended that it be laid
on the table. The various reports
Mr. Kaiilukou presented a peti
tion, alleging that rumor had it that
there were many children living at

who were free of the disease, and

President of the Board of Health
be instructed to investigate the
statements made in the petition, and

Mr. Dole said the settlement in
question was conducted in a manner
disgraceful to the whole country.
The children in question deserved
the strongest care and protection
from this Government. It was bad
enough to allow grown people to
associate with lepers, but to allow
children was utterly inhuman. The
policy that causes that state of
things was one to encourage the
manufacture of leprosy. The mo

After romnrks by the mover and
M. J. Mott Smith for, and Messrs.
Kaiilukou and Wilder against, the
resolution was carried.
ORDER OK THi; DAY.
The House went into Committee

The following items were passed :

Landing at Napoopoo 500
Breakwater at Wiilmcn river,
Running of Steam Tugs 15,000

Mr, Cecil Brown for n reduction to

Mr. ICalua moved the indefinite
postponement of the Item, nrgulng
that the Park was of no bcniiflt to
either Ida eoiutituont of Lahalim oi
the general public. Ho had noticed
that the grounds wore poitlonod out
to private purtlo", who would some
time shut out tho public altogether.
The Park was a hotbed of gambling
and he knew fiom personal experi
ence that whiskey could be bought
there. Moreover, the Park Associa
tion charged admission fees to the
grounds and thereby broke their
promise of making the place tree
upon receiving public aid. Members
of Assembly were admitted free, as
if to purchase their support to future
grants of public money. The Asso
ciation even went to the length of
closing a public road on racing days
at the Park. To-morrow afternoon
there was to bo a race between
horses owned by a millionnaire and
u half millionnaire, and the poor
wharf laborer has to pay for such
amusements of the wealthy.
Mr. Frank Brown denied that en
trance fees were charged passengers
to the Park.
Mr. Cecil Brown said the Asso
ciation had nothing to do with the
races, but lei tho Park on the 11 lb
of Juno, and that was the only day
in the year when admission fees
were charged, lie described tho
improvements made by the Associa
tion to the Park, 8-10,000 having
been spent by them in bringing it to
its present condition. The appro
priation asked for was simply to
continue those improvements, and
tho Treasury was benefited by the
great increase in the value of pro
perty in the vicinity of the Park.
All tho income from the place to
the Association was $250 a year.
As to immoral practices upon the
grounds, they were forbidden and
the Association does its best to stop
Mr. Widemann said if whiskey
was sold in the Park, it was without
the knowledge of the Trustees. Re
ferring to the honorable member's
acknowledgment of having bought
and drunk whiskey in the Park, he
supposed it was the same as with
opium, so long as there were mouths
for it, it would be supplied, law or
no law. The race to-morrow was
for the benefit of the Sisters of
Charity, as the loser was to buy a
carriage for them, and although he
never bet on a horse race, yet he
would give this one his countenance.
Mr. W. O. Smith wondered where
their professions of economy of the
past few days were to begin to bo
put in practice. While the money
heretofore granted for the Park had
been well spent, there was really no
great necessity for the item now.
He moved a reduction of the item to
2,500, and said he endorsed the
statements of the member for Lahai
na as to abuses in the Park. At best,
however, the appropriation was for a
luxury, while there was nothing in
the bill for much-needed water pipes
at the leper settlement of Kalaupapa.
Mr. Widemann said he had been
intimately acquainted with the set
tlement in question from its institu
tion, and had never heard of a sear
city of water there before.
Mr. Cleghorn said only horses
were charged for admission lo the
Park on the last 1 J tit of June.
Liquor had never been sold there
with the consent of anyone connected
with the Park. The Park- was of
great value to the public as a resort
for young people where they could
obtain healthful and necessary re
creation. Mr. Dole thought a separation
should be made between the Park
and the race-course. Tho latter was
regarded in all civilized countries as
demoralizing, and they as a Legisla
ture should have nothing to do with
it. The influence of the Park was
shown in the building up of a valua
ble suburb in that quartor, to which
a railroad might eventually bo built.
Tho only question with him was as
to the amount lo be given.
Mr, Cecil Brown said no part of
the public aid hitherto given had
been expended upon the raco track.
That port of tho grounds was let to
the Jockey Club, which had to main

Rapid progress has been made in
this institution since it came under
the management of the brothers of
St. Mary. This was shown in the
result of the written and oral exami
nations, which have been taking
place during the past week. The
pupils have done some really ex
cellent work, almost exceeding their
teachers expectations. The system
of teaching adopted by the brothers
can have only one result viz : success.
Yesterday aftornoon tho pupils gave
a musical and dramatic ontcrtain
under tho direction of their teachers,
Tho largo hall was beautifully de
corated for the occasion, at ono oud
a haiidsomo sttigo with all appurte
