DUTIES MUST BE PAID IN GOLD.
The Minister of Foreign Affairs
presented a communication to the
Assembly this morning, stating that
the American Minister demanded
that duties be paid in gold fioni and
after August 1st on the giound that
not doing so was a violation of
Treaty rights of the United States.
. There will now be a chance for
merchants to find out what their
THE SURVEY DEPARTMENT.
We exceedingly regret that the
Cabinet propose to curtail the appro
priation for the .Survey Department.
Any one who is acquainted with the
9 work that is being done by the De
partment, and the necessity of it,
will icadily understand why it should
not be crippled, as a decrease in the
appropriation surely will cripple it.
When the land system of the
country was inaugurated, a large
number of surveyors, all working
independently of each other, were
.sent broadcast ovor the land, and
surveyed piece by piece, each kale
una or holding. The result is a
vast accumulation of surveys and
descriptions in the land ofllcc, but
no maps showing the relative posi
tions of the different lands or kale
anus. Many lands also were dis
posed of simply by name, the
boundaries remaining unsettled to
the present day. Large tracts of
Government land also have never
been surveyed, and the aicas aic
unknown. The work of the Survey
Department has been to ravel out
this snarl of material, and obtain
and put into shape the relative posi
tion and aica of ail the lands in the
country. The first woik has been
by triangulation, to 11 x definitely
certain points, fiom which as a basis,
the local surveys could be fixed.
. The district survey work is slow and
laborious, involving the copying of
the old surveys, the re-running of
the old lines, and much experience
and patience in following up blind
leads. This work is work that can
be done only by those acquainted
with the native language, as many
of the surveys are in Hawaiian, and
only by those who have had long
experience in this particular kind of
work. The work of the Department
is well advanced, and is being done
as thoroughly and well as is possible.
' A force of men is employed who,
- have been trained up to the business
and thoroughly understand It. The
result of a reduction of the appro
1 priation by ouc-thiid will be that a
number of tho force will have to be
dispensed with, and the important
,work now in hand seriously retarded.
Wo hope that the Legislature may
sco fit to economize elsewhere than
in this Department.

""'Wc shall not be at all astonished

are, that the Ministers have control

It Is only once in n while, in a very
glaring case that enough of the Min
isterial following refuse to sustain
them, and vote for a less appropria

FIRST STEP TOWARDS A GOLD
Dr.l'AllTUr.NTOFl'lXAXCB, Aug. 1st,
In accordance with an Act to Re
gulate the Currency, approved July
17th, notice is hereby given that for
sixty days from this date, silver
coins of the Hawaiian Kingdom and
of the United States, will be received
at the Treasury at their nominal
value in exchange for Hawaiian coins
at their nominal value.
Section 11 of the Currency Actalso
provides that from and after Decem
ber 1st, 1881, gold and Silver coins
other than the coins of the LTnitcd
States and the Hawaiian Kingdom
shall be received in the Trcasuiy at
at a rate not exceeding their bullion
value for government dues, duties

Minister of Finance.
TnunsDAY. July 151 Continued.
Messrs. ivapena and Maker ad
dressed the House in Hawaiian.
Mr. Widemann said: Wo arc
asked here to provide a salary for
Auditor Geneial. Some members
wish to wipe out the salary to pre
vent it going to the present incum
bent. Others wish to pass the salary
and make it a condition that the
present incumbent shall not receive
it. The Ministerial members want
to pass the salary without reference
to the incumbent. No independent
man in this House wishes to pass
the salary for this incumbent. Even
the Ministors dare not ask us to
pass it for the present holder of the
office. The sentiment of this House
regarding him is too well-known.
The law bids him do certain things,
and he has not done than. It has
commanded him not to do certain
things, and he has done them. Gen
tlemen, what shall we do under the
circumstances? 1 am at a loss.
There was a bill brought into this
IIojisc to abolish the office, and
another one to amend the law. By
an agency, Mr. Chairman, of which
I should not be proud I should
hide my head in sackcloth and ashes
for it the measures were defeated
without discussion. I am afraid
there is a gical deal of truth in
what the member for Lihuc and
Ivoloa has said about patching up
these marble statues. I shall vote
for striking out the salary.
Messrs. Pilipo and Kane having
spoken, the Ayes and Noes were on
motion taken, as follows:
To strike out the item: Mcssis.
Uishop, Parker, Widenmnn, Kaao,
Martin, Frank Drown, Cecil Drowli,

Minister Neumann, in reply to Mr.
Dole, asked for a few days' more
indulgence for his repot I upon leases
of Government lands, as ho had
been engaged In Court up to that
moment. Request granted.
The Act to facilitate the acquir
ing and settlement of homesteads
was read a third time and passed.
Also, the Act to provide for the
payment of snlaiie.s and carrying on
of certain Government works until
the aist of August, 188-1.
The IIouso went into Committee
of the wholo to consider an Act to
regulate the sale of spirituous liquors,
Mr. Kanoa in the chair.
Mr. Hitchcock spoke in favor of
the clause in the 11 est section, that
Sunday shall mean the time between
nine o'clock on Saturday night till
six o'clock on Monday morning.
Mr. Kaulukou thought the old law
making Sunday closing begin at 11
o'clock on Saturday evening was
good enough. jjf the honorable
member for Ililo wished to go to bed
at nine o'clock let him do bo, but
let him not try to compel the public
to follow his example, lie saw no
necessity for the change, and moved
the indefinite postponement of the
Mr. Dole said this bill had been
considered liy many some of whom
were not temperance men, but who
believed in licensing tho sale of
liquor as a necessary evil, but who
wished to restrict it as much as
possible. Saturday was the day upon
which man men were paid off.
Those who drink too much are ex
posed that evening to the danger of
wasting their money. Upon their
first visit to a saloon they know
what they are doing and get their
right change back. But as tho ad
vance in intoxication they pull out a
handful of money and arc oblivious
of what they get in return. (Thieves
friction is simply intended in the
interests of good order that people
may be allowed to go home to their
familios in a decent state and permit
others to do likewise, lie knew that
the honorable member for Honolulu
was an advotc of free liquor, but if
he sat down and thought of this
matter, a moment Mie would change
his mind. If The could follow the
fortunes of a good many who go to
tho saloons, enter their families and
see how their Saturdays arc passed,
he would look at the matter differ
ently, he believed that all who
examined this matter on its merits
would feci that the change proposed
is in tho interests of good order.
Speeches followed from Messrs.
Kaulukou, Hitchcock, Keau, Naka
leka, 1'alohau, Dole and Nawahi,
when the question was put and the
first section of the bill was passed.
On the House resuming, tho Act
to provide for certain Government
expenses was, on motion of Mr. Ka
lua, reconsidered in order to have
ome errors corrected.
The Homestead Act wab, on mo
tion of the same member, subjected
to a similar process.
A discussion took place upon the
work of the Devising Committee,
the tenor of which was not compli
mentary to that body.
Tho Houso adjourned at -1 o'clock

Mr. Dole prosented a report from
the Select Committee on Honolulu
Water works, giving estimates lire
pared by Major Deuder, engineer,
showing that improvements to in
clude a reservoir in Luakahao Valley

estimates amounting to $.")f),000 for
the works required. Adopted.
Mr. Kalua asked for further time
for the committee on the report of
the Board of Genealogy to make
their report. Granted.
Minister Kapcna read a communi
cation from the Hon. W. M. Gibson,
Minister of Foreign Affairs, giving
the, result of an interview ho had
had with Mr. Daggett', the Ameri
can Minister, upon the subject of
the resolution of the Assembly
ordering the Finance Minister to
postpone the order for the payment
of duties in gold until September
1st. After reciting the history of
the order, which is familiar to our
readers, Mr. Gibson states that
the American Minister found the
delay in enforcing 'the order, to
which he had consented pending
action upon the Currency Dill, had
proved much greater than ho was
led to expect, and any further de
lay would bo inconsistent with treaty
obligations. Ho (tho American
Minister) looks to the Government
with implicit faith for the carrying
of the order into immediate effect.
Minister Gibson therefore recom
mended that the order bringing the
payment of duties in gold into effect
on August 1st ought not to be
receded from. The report was

Mr. Palohau supported the reso
lution. He thought members could
say all they required to say in five

over and ovor. Some members
speak so long that other members
