WHY THE MOUNTED POLICE ARE
Our evening contemporary in
commenting upon the discharge of
the Mounted Police, ays: 'The
reason for this action is that the
appropriation for the support of
that force i exhausted, and the
Attorney-General has not asked for
a renewal of it, because he like the
mass of tlie people cannot perceive
the utility of such a force."
May be the Attorney-General
doe, think o, but if o, he has un
dergone a remarkable conversion in
u very short space of time. The
report of the majority of the Com
mittee on Police nnd Prisons, to
whom the subject was ref cried, is
summoned up thus: !Aftcr a full
consideration of the subject, and in
vicvv of the public needs, and
revenue, we helice that the public
interests will be better served by
the disbandment of the 'Armed
Force' than by its maintenance, and
therefore recommend that no fur
ther appropriations be made for the
To this report the Attorney-General
appended the following: "1
concur in the icportof the Chair
man in all particulars except as to a
mounted constabulary force. Such
a force properly drilled and in
structed and placed under control of
the Marshal is here a necessity and
should be maintained."
An appropriation of 800,000 was
inserted in the original appropria
tion bill, and the Attorney-General
has at all times advocated the con
tinuance of the force. Whether he
has now transferred his allegiance
to the new Army and Navy Bill, we
do not know, but one thing is cer
tain, the public has not the .Attorney-General
to thank for the
abolition pf the illegal absorber of
public funds known as the Mounted
Police. The idea has been aban
doned, because it was a foregone
conclusion thai no appropriation
could be obtained for the force.
A CRANK WITH A BILIOUS LIVER
Lets himself loose in the columns of
the Organ, under the name of
"Nota Bene." It would have been
better for him if ho had not a bene
too previous in exposcing the size of
his spleen and the amount of his
ignorance. Apparently he is going
to make a religious martyr of the
ex-primate. His opening sentence
is "Why is it that we do not hear of
the members of the English and
Catholic churches joining in the
crusade of persecution and low
personalities against .Mr. Gibson
and his co-workers. 1
suppose from the Dennis Kearny
style of the editorials of the three
papers controlled by the brains of
that church (Fort Street) that Mr.
Gibson would be burned at the
stake if they could so arrange
matters that they would lose no
money by it."
Not been probably refers to the
Journals which nrc showing tip the
rotton spots at a rate too fast to be
pleasant to the Turkey Cabinet. It
happens, however, that the Editor
of the Jlawaiian is a good Catholic.
The Editor of the ffnzettc is a mem
ber of the English Episcopal church
and the Editor of the Hn.i.i.-i in i
not a member of any church. The
President of the Assembly, who has
denounced the Government as "rot
ten to the core," is also a strong

Don't do it, Not Been. Youv'c
given yourself away badly enough
now. Have a little pity on the
public and your family. Your
mother never know tiiat she was
raising such a specimen as you are.
It is not her fault, and you should
not bring the Not Been family name
down into the dirt in this way.
When you say that "the wonderful
protest from the opposition is the
cause of our present high late of
exchange," you rise to the fullest
comprehension of the matter that
your intellect will allow of, but at
the same time we think that for
your families akc you had better
have Not Been.
Take a rest Not Been. Go down
to Smith's bridge and hang your
head over the rail, and cool your
fevered brain. Adopt a fruit diet
and sleep with a wet towel ou the
pit of your stomach. Follow this
advice Not Been, and in three years
by the clock that liver of yours will
begin to decrease in size; but of all
things, we beg, we pray, we beseech
you, do not raise you oiccwhen
religious liberty is ns-oailed, or on
any other subject.
AN ADVERTISING DODCE.
AVe have received an advertising
pamphlet entitled "American House,
No. 70 Maunakca street. The Pro
prietor, Z. Y. Squires takes this
opportunity to thank his many
friends for past patronage, and in
the future will be pleased to sec
them at his well-known house."
The reverse of the document bears
for a legend. "The Planters' Mon
golian Pets or Human Decoy Act,
by Z. Y. Squires."
Mr. Squires has worked the Pa
tent Medicine style of advertising
down to a line point. There is the
usual startling title; the usual
wandering .statements regarding
everything under the sun except the
subject under consideration : an un
usual amount of frothing at the
mouth : an utter annihilation of the
grammar and the dictionary, and
the usual wind up of all ills that the
human flesh is heir to cured by three
hot. no, we moan the best boarding
house in the city is kept by Z. Y.
Squires. We sincerely hope that
Mr. Squires will not be expelled
from the country, although he seems
to have doubts as to the propriety
of remaining; but if he expects to
make the American House a success,
he must adopt a less expensive
method of advertising.
Tl'KMiVV, Al'OlsT o.
The House met at 10 a. m.
After prayci by the Chaplain, the
minutes of the preceding day were
lead and adopted.
Minister Gulick picsented a leport
from the Select Committee to which
was rcfcried the item for Palace
Stables, S 18,000. The members of
the committee had visited the stables
and found them old, dilapidated and
unworthy of repairing.
A substantial stone and biick
building could be erected for the
amount proposed to be appropriated.
The item was therefore lecommendcd
to the favorable consideration of the
Legislature. The report was signed
by Messrs. Gulick, Bush, Nahinu
Mr. W. O. Smith moved the report
be laid on the table until the minority
report was received.
Mr. Kaulukou moved the report
Mr. W. O. .Smith appealed to the
House not to pass the report without
discussion. He was in favor of
being liberal to Ills Majesty, but
this matter of stables could wait.
They had been voting a great deal
more money than they had. Already
the amount of appropriations passed
was nearly double the whole income
of the. next two years. Owing to the
slnlnkngo in values, the loccipt
from imports, taxes and every other
source would be less for the current
period than for the last. The only
possible thing that would save the
ticasury from bankruptcy was bor
i owing, but the rule held with regnid
to Government as with Individuals
that bonowed money had to be re
paid with (intcicst. Jt was unjust
to the people to increase the nppio
priations without inci casing the
taxes. Last week a man who had
opposed his election, and othcis, had
expicsscd satisfaction at Ills efforts
in the Lcgislatuic to keep down the
expenditure. Yesterday they had
passed a larger appropriation for
education than had ever been passed
before by this Legislature, but if
they went on expending money for
things that were not necessary, all
those other things would go begging.
While he did not think there was a
member of the House who would
oppose the new stables under more
favorable circumstances, yet when
we could not afford the cxpetidituie
it was time to stop it. They did not
know whether the proposal emanated
from His Majesty or not. But they
knew that the King came to them
and counselled economy, and they
knew that this item gave the lie to
the message he sent them. Either
that message was an honest, manly
expression, or it was a base fabrica
tion, lie ventured to say that the
treasury was not in a flourishing
condition to-day, and he was sorry
for the Ministers, who ever they
might be, for the next few months.
The ayes and noes were called,
resulting in Mr. Smith's motion being
can led by 23 to 8, as follows:
To lay on the table. Minister
Gulick, Hon. Mcssis. Bishop, J.
Mott Smith, 'Wilder, AValker, Kcau,
F. Brown, Aholo, Kalua, Ilichnrd

Aynimt. Messrs. Kaac, Kanoa,
Kaulukou, Baker. Amara, Ixaulia,
Gardner, Nahinu 8. ,
Mr. Kaulukou moved that an Act
to license the sale of opium bo made
an order of the day to-day. The
motion was lost.
Mr. .1. Parker was granted leave
of absence owing to domestic be
leavcment. oi.tir.i: or Tin: day.
The House went into Committee
of the Whole Mr. J. Mott Smith in
the chair for the consideration of
the Appropriation Bill.
Mr. Bishop moved to add an item
to the Education Department, of
S720 for scholarships in Oahu Col
Also, an item of 51500 to assist
the publication of a Hawaiian and
English Dictionary, and a School
History of the Hawaiian Islands.
Mr. Pilipo moved to insert an item
of 52,500 for the building fund of
Kawaiahao Seminary, but it was
ruled that, as the item had been
struck out in Committee yesterday,
special leave of the House would be
required foi its reconsideration.
Salary Secretary of the Board of
Mr. Pilipo said that .sometime ago
the work had been done for very
much less, and asked Minister Gib
son for an explanation of the in
crease. Minister Gibson said that formerly
the duties of the clerk had been
performed by the chief clerk in the
Department of the Interior, for the
very small sum of 5300 a year. That
clerk could give nothing like the
attention the duties should have had.
Keeping the books and other clerical
duties formed but a small part of
the Secretary's duties.
Mr. Wilder asked if the present
Secretary leccivcd any other salary
besides that of that olllee.
Minister Gibson replied that he
icccived 550 a month as assistant
at the Dispensary during the absence
of Dr. Fitch at the leper settlements,
but would not receive it if this was
Mr. Wilder said the position did
uot so much requite a professional
man as a man of business, and he
wished he could so describe the
present incumbent. IIu admitted
that the work was much greater than
two years ago owing to the keep
ing up of two leper settlements in
btcad of one. He believed the work
was as well done by the Minister of
the Interior1!? clerk as it was now.
To make purchaser) for the settle

Mr. W. O. Smith concurred in
Mr. AVilder's remarks as to the
Societary's capacity, saying it had
been before unheard of that the
Societary's accounts had to bo copied
into a new set nf books to make

purposes of the Board to have a
Mr. Baker moved to insert a pro
viso that tho Secretary should be a
native Hawaiian, which was lost.
The item canicd.
Leper Settlement. S 100.000.
Minister Gibson, in reply to Mr.
Kalua, said that the statement in
the newspapers legarding a water
famine at the leper settlements weie
about as veracious as some other
things from the same sou ice. Owing
to broken water pipes there was
temporary inconvenience at one of
the settlements, but lepairs weie
promptly made and there was now a
comfortable supply of water at both
settlements. The item passed.
Government Physicians and Modi
Mr. Rowell said the expenditure
was 553,000 for the last period.
Minister Gibson said that was
owing to balances from former pe
riod. The proposed appropriation
would be barely sullleient.
Mr. Uowcll moved thru, the item
Mr. AY. O. Smith moved that a
proviso be inserted that native Ila
waiians should have gratuitous treat
ment. In many districts the Gov
ernment physicians defeated the
policy of free treatment to poor
Hawaiian? by their rulings as to who
should nay and who not.
Minister Gibson concurred in Mr.
Smith's amendment, but regretted
that it should be necessary. The
Government was satisfied that in
many instances the object in ques
tion was defeated by the Govern
ment physicians, but it was difficult
to detect the wrong. However, with
the proposed change, a larger appro
priation would be required, as some
doctors would lose a paying practice
among the natives. The additional
55,000 proposed would likely meet
the increase from that cause.
Mr. Bishop said there was no
doubt doctors came to this country
to seek their fortunes, just as other
people did, and he thought they
were getting into the hands of the
doctors. He did not think tho Ha
waiian people weie going to be saved
by doctors. He did not think it
was necessary to have doctors in
every district of the islands, and ho
was opposed to the amendment as
bad in piiuciple and damaging in
practice. They had no right to
make this race distinction, and it
was degrading to the natives to treat
them all as paupers. AYhilo they
should help the poor, ho believed
those who aic able to help them
selves should do so. Tho Hoard of
Health .must mako tho best rules
they can and watch these doctors.
Mr. Kaulukou was in favor of in
creasing the item, and would bo in
favor of Mr. Smith's amendment if
it were consistent, but ho thought
they should not make a distinction
between poor Hawaiians and poor
Portuguese or other nationalities,
and he doubted tho power of the
Assembly to make such a distinc
tion. Mr. Rowell leasoned that the
doctors should bo made to give duo
return for their subsidies, and that
native Hawaiians should have special
measures for preserving their health.
Foicigners from more severe climates
were brought up to more carefulness
for their health.
.Air. AY. O. Smith argued that tho
discrimination in favor of Hawaiians
was just, because they had proved
more susceptible to leprosy than
other people, and it was well known
that a poor state of health Invited
the attacks of that u-oiiijic.
Mr. IhmiIh'I'b did nul. Imltovo In
ti eating anybody fiee of ohm no, If
onn has to pay for utlondiinco ho
will appiocialo a dime of nirdlcluo.
The praotloi! followed for many
yciiis of giving medicine for nothing
wai a bud one, and hu had never
seen much good from the Govern
ment physicians. Ho had no
objection to Government physicians
gctting subsidies to keep Ihoin In the
place, but all the good they did the
native nice was next to nothing.
The people come and got a dose of
medicine, and then you do not fee
them again for a nionlh'or two, and
then they aie dead. They tell the
people to come to their olllees they
do not go f i om house to house to
see wheie the misery Is. They paid
a doctor in Lihue SI00 a year, and
if ho (the speaker) wanted him to
go a long distance he always shiiked.
After further remarks by Mr.
Bishop, the question was put, and
Mr. Smith's amendment to give gra
tuitous scrvlco to Hawaiians, and
Mr. Powell's to increase the item to
555,000, were both carried.
Tho Committee look a recess from
12 to 1:30.
After recess the appropriations for
the Health Department were resumed.
Minister Gibson said on the sub
ject of building and maintenance of
hospitals that he had learned through
Bishop llcrmannthat there was every
probability of eight more Sisters of
Charity to arrive. Should the
Government erect hospitals on Kauai
and Hawaii similar to the one at
Wailuku they would require an in
creased appropriation, lie would,
therefore, move to pass the item at
Mr. AY. O. Smith was not in favor
of increasing the amount.
Item passed at 510,000.
Pepairs and care of Quarantine,
Referred items in the Judiciary
Department were disposed of as fol
Salary Chief Justice and Chancel
lor, 512,000. Passed.
Mr. Godfey Brown moved to re
duce the salary of First Associate
Justice to 510,000. Passed.
Second Associate Justice ditto.
Mr. Godfrey Brown moved that an
item of 5125 be inserted for unpaid
salary of Clerk of Third Judicial
Mr. G. Brown moved the inser
tion of an item providing 510,000
for the biennial period for Consul
at San Francisco in lieu of fee3.
Messrs. Hitchcock and AY. O.
Smith supported the now item, and
Messrs. Kaulukou, Bishop and J.
Mott Smith opposed it.
Minister Gibson stated that our
Consul at San Francisco was render
ing material service to tho Govern
ment. Ho did not confine himself
strictly to his consular duties, but
was engaged in various ways outside
of his official duties to promote in
fluences favorable to the Govern
ment and country. It would bo a
pity if by our action lie should be
confined solely to his Consular duties,
lie had been of great service in times
of trial and effort on the part of the
Government, and ho should now
reap all the advantage which his faith
ful service had so largely helped to
promote, and he hoped that the item
would bo rejected.
Hon. J. Mott. Smith said this whole
matter of compensation of Consuls
was within tho control of' ihc "Min
ister of Foreign Affairs and had
better not be interfered with by the
On motion the item was. rejected.
