THE STREET RAILWAYS.
There arc now two bills before the
Legislature asking for Street Baiway
Franchises. As neither proposes a
monopoly, and the railway would bo
a means of greatly developing the
outer districts, we think that the
bills should be favorably considered.
Provision is also made for extending
the Roads to the Park and to Ewa.
The district of Ewa is now known
as the "Banana District," and with
daily steam communication the culti
vation both there and at intermediate
points would bo greatly increased.
An objection to the bill in their
present shape, howovcr, is that the
names of the projectors arc not
given. Mr. C. B. Wilson is put up
as a figure head for one bill and "W.
R. Austin's name graces the title
line of the other. Both these gen
tlemen arc most estimable citizens,
and did they have the means for
carrying out the projects, there could
be no possible personal objection to
them ; but it is nothing discreditable
to those gentlemen to say that they
in common with the majority of us,
are not capitalists, and arc not able
to build the proposed roads. It is
an open secret that others arc back
of them. The projects arc legitimate
and honorable ; why need their bo
any concealment ? Men arc appar
ently willing to lend the btrcnth of
their names to a Lottery Swindle or
a Bank Charter Fraud, why do they
not do the same to a legitimate busi

Honolulu, July 28, 1884.
Editor P. C. Advehtiskk :
Sir, The statement made by you
in this morning's issue of the Adveu
tisek, that I was indebted to that
paper for three years' subscription
I forwarded, last November or
December, the amount then due yon
to Mr. Frank Brown, who paid it
over to you and took your receipt,
which I now have at Ililo. When
you forward to me a correct bill of
what I owe you I will pay the same.
Will you please publish this in
THE CENEALOCY REPORT AGAIN.
Editor Bulletin: You will
oblige me if you will, for once, con
tradict yourself and tell your readers
that I had nothing whatever to do
with the Report of the Board of
Genealogy except to correct the
( proof of the last few pages, which
" I did to obligo some one else who
was too busy to attend to them.
Ilad the writer of your notice of
that report known anything of geo
logy ho would not have confounded
its hypotheses with anything 1 have
a'dvocntcd. That both should have
spoken of a Pacific continent is not
singular. The idea is n good deal
older than you or I, or any member
of the Hoard of Genealogy. The
use I made of it was something very
different from, and at variencc with
thnt which the Board desires to put
it to. I am, etc..
J. S. Wr.nn,
Honolulu, 28 July, 1884.
In our review of the Report of
the Board of Genealogy, we stated
upon what we supposed was good
authority that Mr. J. S. Webb was
the author of the Report. It seems
that we were misinformed and have
done Mr. Webb an injustice. Hav
ing but scanned the Report we did
not note the inconsistencies between
it and Mr. Webb's article in the
Hawaiian Monthly, which a closer
examination shows. In fact, had
we had time to read the Report
carefully, its text would itself have
been a refutation of the slander,
for, however, much we may have
differed politically from Mr. Webb,
wo know liiiri to be a man of intelli
gence, and we do not believe him
capable of writing such a produc
tion as the Report of the Board of
Genealogy. We, therefore, cheer
fully take Mr. Webb's word for it,
and inform our readers that the
man who talks about what he
knows about Darwinism from per
sonal experience, and drags in deep
sea soundings, and "rat shooting,"
and forty-eleven other things about
as essential to the genealogy of the
chiefs as a pocket handkerchief is to
a cow, is a myth. We congratulate
the author upon having successfully
concealed his identity but think it
rather ungallant in him to leave
poor Poomaikelani to face the music
Monday, July 28.
The House met at 10 a. m.
After prayer by the Chaplain, the
minutes of the preceding day were
read and adopted.
Mr. Godfrey Blown presented a
report from a majority of the Com
mittoe to whom were referred various
appropriations for officers or public
works. They recommended various
reductions and ambulations. On
motion the report was ordeicd to lie
on the table and be considered with
the Appropriation Bill.
Mr. Kaunamano read a bill to au
thorize the Minister of the Interior
to license Chung Lung, of Honolulu,
to sell opium in that town, the
licensee to give 'bonds in 10,000
for the faithful observance of condi
tions, and to pa' In per cent, ad
valorem upon all his importations.
Licenses to druggists, etc., to sell
for medical purposes arc included in
the provisions of the bill. The bill
passed to second reading in its usual
Mr. Kaulukou moved that from
and after this date the Appropriation
Bill be made the order of the day
for every day.
Mr. Hitchcock moved in amend
ment that two hours each day be
devoted to consideration of the Ap
propriation Bill. The amendment
OIIDER OK THE DAY.
The House went into Committee
of the Whole for the consideration
of the Appropriation Bill. Mr. J.
Mott Smith in the chair.
Minister Gulick desired to intro
duce certain new items in appropria
tions for the Department of the In
terior. He had before him the can
cellation of Mr. Spreckels's lease of
certain lots on Hawaii, and moved
$500 bo appropriated to refund that
gentleman the amount of the first
year's rent, which had been paid.
On motion of Mr. Rowell, the
item recommended this morning in the
Finance Committee's report were
then taken up.
Superintendent Public Works and
Civil Engineer (to be made one
office), $7,000. (Appropriation Bill
has, Salary Superintendent Public
Works, SG,000; Salary Clerk, $2,
400 ; Salary Civil Engineer, $8,000 ;
Incidentals nnd Traveling Expenses,
82,000 which are the items referred
to Select Committee.)
Minister Gulick moved the item
bo 88,000, and said he would move
to strike, out the item for clerk.
Mr. Dole thought the public in
terests would bo best served by
having a clerk to perform the minor
details of office work.
Mr. Wilder thought there was no
necessity for a high priced civil en
gineer for the current period. He
knew of no works for the next two
years requiring more than a first
class boss carpenter.
The item carried as recommended
by Finance Committee.
Mr. Gulick moved the insertion of
S132.0 to pay present engineer's
balance of salary. Carried.

gratified the hungry reporters, if not
his self-sacrificing fellow-patriots, by
a motion that the Committee take r
recess until 2 o'clock, which carried.
On re-assembling after recess Mr.
Bishop spoke in favor of the pro
posal to have an assistant superin
tendent of public works, and Mr.
Hitchcock against it.
The question was put, lesulting in
the Finance Committee's proposition
to strike out the appropriation for a
clerk to the superintendent of
public works being carried.
Incidentals and traveling expenses

to Minister of the Interior.
Roads in Koolaupoko, $8,000.
A motion for the Committee to
rise having been defeated, President
Rhodes rose to a point of order,
claiming that, more than two hours
having been devoted to the consider
ation of tho Appropriation Bill, the
Committee could not sit contrary to
the resolution of the House passed
this morning, to give that space of
time each day to the subject named.
The chairman considered the point
well taken and accordingly left the

The House adjourned at 4:43.
Tuesday, July 2'J.
The House met at 10 a. m.
Mr. Frank Brown moved a resolu
tion ordering tho Finance Minister
to extend tho dato from which
duties must be paid in gold until tho
1st of December next.
Mr. W. O. Smith supported tho
resolution. lie had introduced a
resolution the other day, asking the
Minister of Finance for his reasons
for the order. If the reasons are
such as will admit of the proposed
extension of time it will be a great
convenience to merchants.
Minister Kapcna said the notice
which has appeared lntcly is not en
tirely the same as tho original one.
A notice to the same effect was
published some time previous to the
session, and after the House met
there was an exchange of corre
spondence between the United States
and this Government about the
Customs duties, nnd there was an
agreement made that the matter
should lie awhile until after the
present session. The notice was
then taken out of tho papers. After
the gold bill passed the House, how
ever, the American Minister camC to
him and said, "you must put in that
notice again, to appear "before the
first of August." So it appeared.
There arc other reasons for it.
(Turning to Mr. Smith I am
answering your resolution at the
same time.) The notice was gotten
up hurriedly and issued, and ho
now believed the time given the
merchants was rather limited. He
had no objection to the resolution as
presented by the honorable member
this morning, to extend the time for
enforcing the order.
Mr. Dole thought that, under the
circumstances, the American Minis
ter would consider the extension of
time reasonable. Although the
United States asked that gold should
be paid, yet he understood that they
did not insist upon it on account of
the inconvenience it cost business
men here. He believed the Ameri
can Minister of Foreign Affairs
would recognize the reasonableness
of the delay. There was no time for
business men to get gold from the
Coast. He believed this resolution
would meet with the approval ,of
Mr. Kaulukou doubted the au
thority of the House to pass the
resolution ordering the Minister to
extend the time. He was in favor
of the object, but thought an Act
was the proper method of encom
passing it. The resolution passed.
Mr. Kancalii moved that the fol
lowing bills be taken from the table
and made the order of the day for
Thursday : An Act to do away with
certain tuition fees, and, An Act to
more definitely define the hours to
be considered a day's labor for per
sons serving under contract. Carried
Mr. J. Mott Smith moved that
the bill referring to postal savings
be taken from the table and referred
to a select committee.
On motion of Mr. Rowell the bill
was read a second time by its title,
after which Mr. Smith renewed his
motion, which was put and carried.
The President appointed, as 'a Se
lect Committee to consider the bill,
Messrs. Smith Rowell, Hitchcock,
Aholo and Minister Kapena.
Mr. W. O. Smith wanted to know
what become of certain bills relating
to the recording of marriages.
Mr. Dole said the Judiciary Com
mittee had had them in consideration
and prepared an amended bill, which,
however, they had in abeyance until
they could get time to examine an
elaborate system in operation by the
Board of Education. He would bo
glad to have the matter referred to a
Mr. Smith remarked upon a com
mittee that had been extolled for
eminent abilities desiring to delegate
its functions to a Special Committee.
LOTTERIES AND GAMBLING.
The following is an extract from a
sermon delivered at St. Andrew's
Cathedral, Sunday morning, by The
Right Rev. the Bishop, from the text
"let your conversation bo without
covctousness j and bo content with
such things as yo have."
There is a special need at the present
time of our laying to heart the sin of
covctousness, which if it once be
rooted in the heart, will like a canker
worm eat out all love of Christ and
holiness. The moral sense of this
community has recently been shocked
by tho introduction of a bill to raise
money by the lottery system. It is
LiiiLaiji.'Xf.ii.iUii iiJitingm1 uaiuxn
true that the bill has "been with
drawn. There is thercforo no occa
sion for dwelling on all the evils such
ft bill had .it passed would have
brought on this community. But
have wo therefore no duty to per
form? If a terrible calamity in
volving los of life and limb has
been narrowly escaped, it wo"uld bo
folly not to inquire into the causes
which rendered it imminent as nar
rowly as though it had actually
happened. And so when we are
threatened with a moral evil, the
fact that wc arc saved from its
immediate infliction, should be re
garded as an opportunity granted us
to make provision that such a curse
may never bo imposed upon this
country. First of all, that :v ma
jority of the Legislature should have
allowed such a bill to bo introduced
is undergoing a moral declension.
Whilst Honolulu has gone on flatter
ing itself that it is a most pious and
religious community, tares have been
sown among the wheat which have
grown apace. Nor can we expect
to uproot them. The introduction
of this bill shows us that the spirit
of gambling is abroad in our midst.
Of the evils that gambling entails,
it is unnecessary to speak here.
They arc so great, that every civi
lized nation finds it necessary to
make laws for its suppression. The
fact that such legislation should be
necessary makes it evident that there
is a strong tendency to indulge in
the practice. But though legisla
tion may suppress vice, laws will
not make a people virtuous. This
is tho office of the church teaching
and enforcing the commandments of
God which touch the motives of
human conduct as well as the out
ward nets. Let us observe first
where the sinfulness of gambling
lies. On the part of the winner of
any prize there is a clear and dis
tinct breach of the eighth command
ment. He is enriched at the expense
of the losers who receive no equiva
lent whatever for the money the
winner puts into his pocket. The
author of tho "Wealth of Nations"
speaking on this subject says "The
world neither ever saw nor ever will
see a perfectly fair lottery." Yet
in spite of this unfairness which is
in their very nature, the unlawful
gains it ""gives to a few, and the
losses it entails on the many, the
same author makes the following
statement "The sobered people
scarce look upon it as a folly to pay
a small sum for tho chance of gain
ing ten or twenty thousand pounds."
But regarded in the light of tho
Word of God, to take a ticket in a
lottery be the prize large or small
is worse than a folly, it is a sin.
It is the outcome of that desire of
gain which the tenth commandment
expressly forbids, involving not
merely the desire of other men's
goods, but the hope of obtaining
them by the cast of dice or the
drawing of a ticket. The success of
lotteries depends then on the covct
ousness of mankind. They stimu
late one of the most sinful propen
sities of our race, tho indulgence of
which undermines and destroys the
habits of honest industry, and is
directly opposed to the spirit of the
Gospel, as expressed in the text.
The office of the church in tho world
is to counteract the evil and selfish
tendencies of mankind, to keep
before the redeemed that life has a
higher aim than the accumulation
of wealth or the gratification of
self. What thett is our
duty at the present time? Clearly
to take heed and beware of covctous
ness which lies at the root of that
evil with which we have been threat
ened, and which at any future time
may seek to be legalized in our
midst. Then here it becomes the
duty of every member of the church
to discountenance every , practice
which may lead to or encourage the
slightest departure from the way of
right. Betting, milling, staking
even the smallest sums on a game of
cards aro all of this nature. Man'
think that no harm is done unless
thc.amount that is staked upon a
chance, exceeds a man's ability to
pay. But the principle involved is
the samo whether tho amount .staked
is ten cents or 10,000 dollars. The
principle involved being this, that
wo aro none of us the possessors of
our fortunes bo we poor or rich.
Our incomes are talents entrusted to
us by God of which wo have to give
account; and therefore nono have
any right to risk the loss of these
trust funds on the issue of a race or
a game, or on the drawing of a
ticket, any more than they have any
right to put into their pockets the
amounts that others arc foolish
enough to hazard on the buiiu:
issues. If you allow your
children to put into a rallle, what
answer shall you make if in after
years they put larger sums into
lotteries or gamins; tables, and tell
you that it
was their success in
gave them their first
taste of the excitement to bo found
in gambling. No doubt many have
put in to rallies with the best inten
tion, and without the slightest
thought that they were trenching on
forbidden ground. To such it is
only nccossaiy to point out that the
piinciple is indefensible to satisfy
thuin that such ways must certainly
have no place in works intended for
the glory of God.
