This morning a petition was
handed to Minister of the Interior
Gulick asking a charter of incorpo
ration for a publishing association
to be known as the " Hullctin-Prcss
Publishing Co." The charter calls
for u capital stock of 830,000 (with
privilege to increase to 100,000)
divided into 1,200 shares of $'2f
each. The names of many substan
tial citizens appear in the list of
subscribers. The present proprietor
of the two establishments will hold
shares in the new company, if a char
ter be granted. Those interested in
the combination claim thai the. union
of the two ofllces is in the interests of
economy and cillcicncy in (inauagc
ment, both of the newspaper and of the
job department. The union olllce will
bc a btrong one, in type, presses and
other plant; and the United paper
will preserve the best features of
both the daily and weekly. It is
probable that the lln.ixnx will con
tinue as a daily, and that the Press
will be issued as a weekly reprint of

THE 0RCAN TO THE RESCUE.
It seems to be a moral impossibi
lity for the organ to dicuss any ques
tion, without indulging in vitupera
tion. This, for example, is its style
of discussing the gold duty question.
"We have begun to think that
miotlnir and commenting on the llri.-
i.utin's misrepresentations is time
wasted. It evidently does not want
to tell the truth. -
This nltempled pcrverioii" of the
law is simply nasty. It is not honest,
nor it is wilfully stupid. It is nothing
more than an example of that petti
fogging newspaper .scheming which
the half educated lawyer delights to
present in a newspaper."
The editor thinks he has made a
llnd and triumphatly quotes Section
8 of the Currency Act which reads
"and be it further enacted, that
from and after the date of the pas
sage of this Act, it shall be the duty
of the Minister of Finance to require
that all duties paid on imports shall be
paid in gold coins of the United
States, or its equivalent." If the
organ editor had not been so anxious
to make a point, and talk "nasty,"
lfo would have asked some body who
knew something about it lo explain
the matter to him.
Although the statement made by
us yesterday fully covers the point,
we will restate it for the organs
Section 8 states that duties must
be paid in gold or its equivalent.
As the phrase "or its equivalent" is
ambiguous, and involve the fixing
of the relatives values of coins, Sec
tion ft gives the power to tho King
and Privy Council to fix the relative
values of coins, for the purpose of
paying duties, taxe., etc. In pur
suance with Section ft the Pi ivy
Council met nnd passed a resolution
which was quoted by us yesterday,
defining, for the purpose of paying
duties, etc., the relative value of the
coins enumerated, and the "equiva
lent" of gold.
The Law of 187(1 then stands,
"duties shall be paid in U. S. gold,
or its cjiticulciit," that equivalent
is defined by the resolution of the
Privy Council of 1870; and the
Minister of Finance has issued an
order that duties shall be paid in
gold only, without reference to the
"equivalent." We therefore say
that the order of the Minister of Fi
nance is illegal, and binding on no
one; and that a tender by an im
porter, of the equivalent, as defined
by tiic Privy Council, will be a legal
tender, and the Government will he
obliged to accept it.
Mosn.u, Aronyr I. Continued.
Upon the House opening at half
past one, the rules were suspended
to receive the report of the Com
mittee on Education upon an Act to
assist boarding schools or girls on
the Island of Hawaii. Besides the
bill there were petitions from Hana
lei and other places asking for simi
lar assistance. The Committee! con
sidered that boarding schools were
expensive means of providing edu
cation for girls, that comparatively
few were educated at such institu
tions in older countries and that it
would be inexpedient to give Gov
ernment aid to that kind of schools
in this Kingdom. They, therefore,
recommended that the bill and peti
tions be laid upon the table. The
teport was adopted.
The Hanking Bill was taken up,
and after the amendments made at
its third reading were read, it was
oitmu: or tiii; day.
The House went into Committee
of the Whole on the Appropriation
Hill, Mr. .1. Mott Smith in the chair.
Items for the Department of the
Attorney-General were resumed.
Salary Clerk of Sheriff of Maui,
Salary Clerk of Sheriff of Hawaii,
S 1,800. Passed.
Salary Clerk of Sheriff of Kauai,
Mr. Howell' asked if this was not
a new item.
Mr. W. O. Smith said he spoke
from experience when he said that
there was no need for the olllce on
Mr. Itowell moved the item be
struck out, which carried.
Mr. Hitchcock moved the inser
tion of $1100 for travelling expenses
of the Sheriff of Hawaii, and nftcr
wnrd accepted an nmendnient to
S100 moved by Mr. W. O. Smith.
Mr. Dole thought this was not the
right way lo provide for travelling
expenses. None of those who spoke
knew ahything about what the
travelling expenses of this olllcer
would be. There were the inci
dentals, criminal and civil expenses,
830,000, which were Intended to
cover the travelling expenses of
The motion was lost.
Salary Police of Maui, as esti
Mr. lliehardson moved that all
the items for salary of police and
the item for armed force contingent
fund be referred to a select commit
tee of the House when the Comir.it
tee'rose. Mr. W. O. Smith did not see the
necessity for the proposed reference,
as the whole subject had already
been before a select committee of
thirteen, from the majority and
minority of which diverse reports
had been received. This was a
matter that could not be regulated
by tlii- House, for uniformity in
salaries would check laudable ambi
tion which was promoted by a sys
tem of promotion according to
merit. It was not just to give green
boys the same pay as experienced
Mr. Dole said he was one of the
majority of the Committee of Thir
teen, but hi" felt like criticising
them for not having followed up
their conclusions with corresponding
legislation. He favored the motion
to refer tlio-e items, with the
amendments that it be a committee
of five, as the Committee of the
Whole could not intelligently discuss
these items and the committee re
ports referred to. which were laid
on the table for consideration with

Mr. Kanealii moved the item be
amended to $21,000.
Mr. W. O. Smith moved a re
duction to ft,()00, seeing the
amount had formerly been only
Mr. G. Brown moved to divide
the item thus: Incidentals, $2,000 ;
Civil and Criminal Expenses,
Mr. Kaulukou opposed reduction,
dwelling iipom the increase of smug
gling, illicit distillation, etc., which
must cost a greater amount than
Minister Neumann, who just en
tered the House, said there was no
question that $0,000 would be alto
gether insullicient. Unless the
Privy Council were authorized to
draw upon the treasury in cases of
emergency, the appropriation of
such a small amount would hamper
the Government in the execution of
the laws against crime. As an in
stance of the importance of having
sufficient funds for the purpose in
question, he related the circum
stances of the recent barratry ease.
A steamer had to be chartered and
the Deputy Marshal and squad of
soldiers sent out to overtake the
stolen vessel, which was suspected
of being run off with to engage in
smuggling opium from on board a
brig into the Kingdom.
Mr. AY. G. Smith said no change
had come over the country within
the last year to justify such a large
increase. The country had law and
order and able Attorney-Generals
hitherto, with only S2,000 for Civil
and Criminal Expenses.
Mr. Dole said a change had come
over the spirit of the dream of this
Kingdom with the last two years.
It is found that exorbitant increases
have to be made in the cost of Gov
ernment. As to the case cited by
His Ex. tins Attorney-General, the
chances were that a vessel would
not be stolen by a scoundrel again
for fourteen years. He quoted the
criminal expenses of former years
to show that the propo-cd item was
Minister Neumann said that the
expenses last year, besides coro
ners' inquests, had been over $13,
000. Tho least the House- should
allow was $12,000, andj he moved
that the item be placed at that
Mr. Brown said his amendment
was based upon the expenses of
Inst year.- A large part of them
were for lawyers' fees, but witli an
Attorney-General arid a Deputy
there would be nothing to pay on
Mr. Kunealil withdrew his amend
ment, and the Item passed at
Items for the Department of
Education were next taken up.
Salary of Inspector-General of
Schools, 80,000. Passed.
Travelling Expenses of Inspector
General, $1,000. Passed.
Salary Clerk Hoard of Education,
Support of Hawaiian and English
Minister Gibou spoke in terms of
gratification at the improvement of
Hawaiian Schools. Several English
Schools had been established, and
there were denominational schools
that it would be proper to assist.
Vhilo economy was the watchword,
yet, if the House thought proper,
he thought a larger sum might be
devoted to the cause of education,
lie. therefore, moved the item be
raised to $100,000.
Mr. Bishop said lie had been over
the estimates and accounts in the
Education Olllce. He found that to
carry on schools already established
and to build some school houses
that are absolutely necessary, and'
for teachers in those places, and to
increase salaries slightly to sonic of
the older teachers, would take
probably $00,000. It had always
been found in the past that there
were always some schools needed
and school-houses to be erected in
places not foreseen. New people
were constantly coming in, such as
the Portuguese, with large families,
making new centres of population
to be provided with schools, and
they expected to have the Japanese.
The Government promises to these
Portuguese education for their chil
dren, and the only suitable educa
tionis in the English language. This
was a large amount to ask for, but,
really, if the schools were to be
kept up to their standard nearly the
whole of it would be required. lie
hoped SI 00.000 would be adopted.
Mr. Howell moved the word "Ha
waiian" bo struch out. .Owing to
the number of foreigners coming In
the schools would cease to be
Mr. Bishop said it was still neces
sary lo keep up Hawaiian schools.
Mr. Itowell then changed his'
amendment, to combine this item
and that for "Support of Common
Schools, S10.000, and say 8110,000
Mr. Kalua moved to insert 82,000
for Makawao Seminary.
Mr. Dole said a similar appropria
tion had been made last session but
Mr. Hishop explained that tho
Board had given nearly that amount
to a building for the institution
before the appropriation was made.
Tho motion passed.
Mr. Kaulukou moved to insert an
item of 810,000 for increasing the
accommodation of St. Louis College.
President Ithodes spoke warmly
in favor of the proposal, saying the
institution was to his own knowledge
doing excellent work. The Christian
Hrothers had been compelled to
organize some classes tinder the trees
for want of accommodation. Those
gentleman were well educated and
Air. Tsonberg had heard that it
was a new house that was wanted.
As a largo number of children at
tended that college, ho did not see
that it was not right to aid it. If the
school was not built by the Mission
the Government would have to
.Mr. Bishop said the building
needed would cost ten thousand
dollars. Already adout S30.000 had
been expended upon the premises.
This was a large sum to ask for ono
school, but considering the precedent
established by the Legislature, he'
did not see how aid to this school
could bo refused.
Mr. Gibson referred to the College
as an admirable institution. He
believed that they carried out their
excellent system of education with
out any spirit of propagandism.
They were solely devoted to
education without reference to
religion. They algo gave industrial
education. He was told bv Father
Sylvestro that $20,000 would bo
needed and they wanted half that
amount from the Legislature.
Mr. Iscnbcrg said that included

publication of the Hotany of the
Hawaiian Islands, by Dr. Hillebrand.
Mr. J. Molt Smith supported the
proposition as aiding a work that
would be an honor to the Kingdom.
The author of the work had spent
twenty-five years over it.
Mr. AY. O. Smith wanted to know
if it would be suitable for a school

At five o'clock the Committee rose

journed till 10 o'clock, a, m. Tues
day. HOW THE DIFFICULTY WAS MET.
A good story is told of Judge Kent.
A man was inbictcd for burglar)',
and the evidence on trial showed
that his burglary consisted in cut
ting a hole through a tent in which
several persons were sleeping, and
then inserting his head and arm
through the hole and abstracting vari
ous articles of value. It was claim
ed by his counsel that inasmuch
as ho never actually entered into the
tent with his whole body, he had
not committed the offense charged,
and must therefore be discharged.
Jindgo Kent, in reply to this plea,
told the jury that if they were not
satisfied that the whole man was not
involved in the crime, they might
bring in a verdict of guilty against
so much of him as was thus invol
ved. Tho juury, after a brief con
sultation, found the right arm, the
right shoulder, and the head of the
prisoner guilty of the offense of bur
glary. The Judge sentenced the
right arm, the right shoulder and
the head to imprisonment with hard
labor in the State prison for two
years, remarking that, as to the rest
of the man's body, he might do
with it what he pleased.
