, THE LEGISLATURE
Has announced its intention of clos
ing for the season, on next Saturday.
The country is to be congratulated
that the Legislature has not done as
much harm as it was capable of,
although we are not out of tho woods
yet, and there are several iniquitous
measures lying dormantin the House,
which tho promoters will try to rush
through during the last hours of the
session. Among these arc the Army
and Navy Bill, and the Opium
Liconse Bill. The former is the pet
of the Royal powers, and proposes
to squeczo the public to the tunc of
a hundred or two thousand dollars,
for the Royal pleasure. The latter
is tho scheme of a speculative China
man who hopes to make a fortune by
debauching the nation. Tho Appro
priation Bill has passed its second
reading, but the mimtotalhasnotyct
been ascertained. A shoal of addi
tions to it are stowed away in mem
bers desks, awaiting tho third read
ing, when no doubt the log rolling
and "you tickle me and I'll tickle
you" process will be repeated with
variations. No thought of where the
money is to come from, appears to
trouble the plncid calm of the Legis
lative mind, and no measure has yet
been brought forward by which to
raise the wherewithal to cover tho
vast appropriations made. It is
whispered that a loan bill will be run
through by the Government majo
rity, without attempt at argument.
Another week will show the Govern
ment luind, and tho country will
know the worst that they have to
fear from the Legislature of J 881.
THE REASON WHY
The Cabinet docs not resign or is
not removed, is because this paper
and pretty nearly the whole country
arc demanding it, and arc indignant
because they stay after their crimi
nal conduct has been shown ! It is
about time Hint this was well under
stood. The Organ has said, and it
is freely talked on the streets, and
tit the Government headquarters,
that no removal will take place till
the demand therefor ceases 1 This
is richness! At the same lime it is
entirely consistent. It is consistent
because it is the exact course pur
sued by the ordinary small boy, or n
mule, or a hog. Let the way be
shown and it' is sufficient exactly
the opposite course is pursued. And
why a small boy, or the mule, or the
pig goes contrary, is because it is
the nature of the beast. Why any
thing else should be expected in the
premises hern, it is hard to say,
excepting that there was a lingering
hope that a few grains of sense still
adhered to the head. We have been
given to understand that the incom
petency and criminality of the Min
istry arc fully known and appreciated,
but they will not be removed be
cause the country also knows that
they arc criminal and incompetent,
and demands that they be removed !
Thcdulyisulc.tr; it is demanded,
and refused because it is deman
ded ! Nothing further need be said
on this subject. It speaks for
THE OPIUM BILL.
The public docs not seem to be
aware that there is a bill before the
house, asking for a liconse to sell
opium. At least there seems to be
no general interest felt in the matter.
The man who asks the privilege is
Chung Lun, tho son of the promi
nent Chinese merchant Afong. He
has made his boast around town
that lie was sure of enough votes to
put the bill through. It behooves
the community to look alive to this
matter, or the wily Celestial may
steal a march on them, and railroad
the thing through before they are
aware of its existence.
THE ORGAN'S POLICY.
The organ is evidently trying to
hedge. It characterizes the Govern
ment party tliis morning as "shame
fully suinmissive," and "the dod
ging, white livcred Government
crowd" &c. Bo careful, friend
'2'iser, your bread and butter de
pends on blackguarding decent
people and blowing tho Gibson
trumpet through thick and thin.
When Spreckels hears that you are
talking badly about his ministers, he
will come down here and bounco
you, and put a man in your place
who can do what he is told to.
Therefore you had better get on the
right side of the community, before
you cut loose from the loaves and
fishes. To be sure it is hard work
to keep extolling those whom you
know to be dcspicablo characters ;
but then business is business, and
a man must live, and that's what
you are hired for. Therefore, dear
"J'iscr, you had better go slow, or
there will be an aching void in the
region of your pocket book.
THE LUAU AGAIN.
Kditok Bui.i.utin: As a mem
ber of the Honolulu Rilles, I de
Eire to make brief reference to tho
much mentioned hum of last Wed
nesday night. The project, I am
informed, was lirst suggested, by
His Majesty, whereupon a baker's
dozen of the corps met and "rati
fied" tho suggestion, much to tho
disgust of u iargo element of the
company including myself, who op
posed, on principle, the doing of
any act which could lie construed as
an attempt to bribe the Legislators.
I should add that, unfortunately,
the conservative element referred to
was very meagcrly represented at
the meeting which approved the cut
and dried programme of a few en
Rest assured that a largo number
of tho Rifles, if not a majority, con
sider the Zucm (o have been a very
ill-advised move; and, under tho
circumstances, very little, if any
thing, short of being positively dis
reputable. It is worse than childish
to claim that no desire to inlliieneo
Legislative votes entered into the
project. If not that, what was the
object? Tlie Legislature had in no
way given Hie Rilles recogni
tion up to that date; then why
should they have been banqueted?
There were probably not a dozen
members among them with or for
whom any of the Rilles had either
acquaintance or aloha, and
it is too obvious to admit
of argument, that the object
of the feast was to inlluenco their
votes, and nothing else. The history
of the prevailing party in the House
during the present session had
already so glaringly recorded the
potency of free feeding as a bait for
voles, that a disclaimer of mercenary
motives sniatters much too strongly
of either prevarication or imbecility
on tho part of those who defend the
Rilles in this regard.
Like many others. I accepted tho
situation, distasteful as it was, and
attended the luttu out of loyality to
my military duty but rejoice to
have left before the hula debauchery
was introduced, hi common with
many of the thinking members of the
Rilles, I feel ashamed of the luatt
project, from its inception to its
disrcputabletuirtc, and hope that a
different clement from that which
managed the feast in reference will
hereafter be able to prevent the
corps from making itself ridiculous,
even at, his Majesty's suggestion.
C. W. AsiiKonn.
Aug. 10th, 1881.'
FitiDAY, August 15 Continued.
Mr. W. O. Smith complained that
the Attorney-General had not res
ponded to the resolution of the
House regarding questionable leases,
having avoided the matters of ex
tensions of leases to W. M. Gibson,
Samuel Andrews and Kapiolani.
Minister Gibson (in the absence
of Minister Neumann) said he
thought the honorable member was
mistaken, as the extensions in ques
tion had been included in the return,
which he saw published.
Mr. Kaulukou presented the report
of the Select Committee on the pro
posed appropriation of $1G,000 to
the Board of Genealogy of Hawa
iian Chiefs. The committee were of
opinion that the continuance of the
Board would be of great benefit to
the Kingdom and to posterity. They
recommendedj however, that $10,
000 be appropriated to the object
instead of $1G,000.
Mr. Rowell moved the report be
received and laid on the table for
consideration with the report of the
Select Committee on the Board's
Mr. Kaulukou moved tho report
be adopted. He thought tho com
mittee on the Board's Report had
had plenty of time in which to report.
Mr. Aholo was not prepared to
vote for the appropriation, as he
thought the committee had neglected
matters in connection with the
subject which should have been
considered as well as the amount of
money. He moved that the report
bo returned to the committee.
Mr. W. O. Smith supported Mr.
Mr. Pilipo had heard that about
128 meles had been collected, some
ancient and some modern, and he
supposed many of them had the hula
Jcui; that nine books of genealogy
had been found, and that tho tombs
of a number of kings and chiefs had
been discovered. Having obtained
all these stores of information and
not professing to have any prospects
of obtaining any more in the next
two years, he could not see for what J
they were asked to appropriate
Mr. Knlua promised the report of
the committee on tho Board's Report,
printed in both languages, to-morrow
The motion to return the report
to the committee was carried.
Mr. W. O. Smith being granted,
by request, a perusal of the Attorney-General's
return to the resolu
tion of tho Houso regarding certain
leases, he questioned its nccurncy
In several particulars. For instance,
the Marine Railway's lease was
granted under statute, and that of
tho Hawaiian Hotel hud been con
firmed by the Supremo Court.
Minister Neumann said he had
applied to the Department of the
Interior for a return of all the leases
granted without advertisement for
the period in question, and had
simply given Ids' opinion upon the
face of them. If the honorable
member desired his opinion more
specifically upon any cases he would
have to bring in a new resolution.
Mr. Dole moved a resolution that
the Minister of Foreign Affairs be
requested to inform the Assembly
what was paid Clans Spreckels for
procuring Hawaiian silver coinage.
He thought the resolution was neces
sary after the denial made by the
Minister of Foreign Affairs yester
day, as the reports of the Gazelle,
Bru.rnx and JIaiouiian agreed in
saying that the Minister had promised
early in the session to submit a bill
or statement of the costs for exprcs
sagc, seigniorage and freight on
account of the coinage.
Minister Gibson said it was eas)'
for the newspapers to bo mistaken
he knew this well from previous
connection with the press and lie
gave several very recent instances
in which blunders in names iiad
been made in reports of .the pro
ceedings of the House in all the
local papers. Of the reports re
ferred to, ho said that of the Bul
letin came nearest the truth in say
ing that he had promised a statement
of the cost of coinage, lie seconded
the resolution, and promised his
reply in writing.
The resolution passed,
oitnr.n or tiii: day.
The House resolved itself into
Committee of the Whole on the
Appropriation Bill, Mr. Cleghorn in
Reductions of salaries recommend
ed by the Ministry in obedience to
the King's message were taken up.
His Majesty's l'rivy Purse and
Private State, S-ir,000 instead of
Mr. Kaulukou moved the item
pass at the original figure, $50,000.
Ninistcr Neumann regarded the
King's request as earnest, serious
and intended for the good of the
country. No matter what the per
sonal feeling of a member might be
.toward His Majesty as a friend
and he uas proud of his own friendly
relations with him" he believed it
would be small consideration for him
to slight his desires in that regard,
as if lie stood in need of his allow
ance. Mr. Widcmann declared his pur
pose of voting for the larger
sum. He had read in the
newspapers that the members
of the Opposition were responsible
for the' increase of appropriations,
and lie desired to call the attention
of the House to tho fact that the
Opposition was not answerable for
this motion, but he would support it.
Mr. Kaulukou had read in a
reliable newspaper that the price of
sugar had gone up to $100 a ton,
and thought there was no reason to
be alarmed for the country.
The motion for $50,000 carried.
Her Majesty the Queen, $10,000.
His Majesty's Chamberlain and
Secretary, SG,000 instead of $7,000'.'
On motion $7,000 was passed.
4tfr. Aholo moved to insert $150
in "Permanent Settlements" for
balance due Kuihclani. Carried.
Expenses Supreme Court, $-1,000
instead of $5,000. On motion $5,000
A motion was made to insert $2,
000 instead of $1,C00 for tho District
Judge of Kau, but an amendment to
insert $800 for an additional judge
Mr. Dole moved -that tho salary of
the First Associate Judge bo made
$11,000, but accepted an amendment
ot Minister Neumann to give both
Associate Judges that amount. The
motion was, however, ruled out of
order at this reading, as the items
had already been noted upon'.
Salary Minister of Foreign Affairs,
S 11,000 instead of $12,000. Passed.
Mr. G. Brown moved to insert
$icn.88, balance due Monument
Tho same gentleman suggested
the Insertion of an item to cover
balance due the Coronation Com
mittee. Minister Gibson said the Minister
of tho Iulcrlor had those things in
hand. Tho motion dropped.
Salary Minister of the Interior,
$11,000 instead of $12,000. Passed.
Salary Surveyor General, $7,000
instead of 8,000. On motion $8,000
Government Surveying, $25,000
instead of $35,000.
Mr. Hitchcock moved the larger
amount be appropriated".
President Rhodes said he had a
communication from the principal of
the Department, saying that if tho
appropriation wero matcriolly re
duced it would cripple the service,
but it would be able to get along
with $32,000. $35,000 passed.
Salary Postmaster General, $7,000
Instead of $8,000. The larger amount
Mr. Rowell moved to insert, im
mediately after Road Tax, $3,821.73
unexpended road taxes. The Itcifl
had escaped the select road com
mittee's attention when preparing
their report because it was in n dif
ferent place in the report of the
Minister of the Interior. It was the
unexpended road taxes of the prc
vious period. Motion carried.-
Mr. Rowell moved that the ar
rangement of the items for the road
service be changed, so as to have
the unexpended balances due each
district placed after the new appro
priation for it. Carried.
Mr. Rowell then tendered a scale
of the items so combined, which he
had prepared on behalf of tho com
mittee, for the acceptance of the
On motion it was decided to have
the scale read, when
Mr. Hitchcock objected, suggest
ing that it be referred to a Special
Committee, as the House could not
know in the hurried reading whether
it was correct or not.
Mr. Dole said tho Hon. member
had systcmized the work for tho
House and corrected it, and no com
mittee could improve upon it.
A motion was then carried to in
definitely postpone the paper.
Mr. W. p. Smith moved that when
the Coramittccc rise it recommend
that this document be printed and
a copy given to each member.
Mr. Aholo blocked this with the
objection that the article having
been indefinitely postponed, nothing
further could be done with it.
On motion of Mr. Richardson it
was decided that the Committee rise
and recommend that the Appro
priation Bill as passed bo.cngrosscd,
leaving blanks for the total amounts
under each head.
The Committee accordingly rose
and reported, the report was adopted,
and the third reading of the bill set
A good deal of lime was spent in
discussing what bills to take up, and
a motion to give precedence over
other bills before it on the order to
an Act to facilitate the right to con
struct street railways in Honolulu
received tho requisite two-thirds
Then a misunderstanding arose as
to which of the three bills that had
been introduced relative to the street
railway franchise should form the
basis of action-.
Motions were severally made on
behalf of all three, but an appeal to
the minutes showed that the bill sub
mitted by Messrs. Isenberg and
Cleghorn, minority of the Committee
on Commerce, providing for selling
the franchise at auction, had been
read a second time by titlo and its
third reading appointed for to-day,
while the bill granting franchises
respectively to Mr. Austin and Mr.
Wilsou had been laid upon the table.
That much having been accom
plished, tho House adjourned at
1:50 until 10 o'clock to-morrow.
LAST NIGHT'S CONCERT.
Musical entertainments of a high
class arc raro but always welcome
in Honolulu, and aro sure of good
support. Such was the easo last
evening when Remenyi gave his
second concert at the Music Hall.
The audience was very large, and
one of the most musically intelli
gent gatherings which lias bc6n seen
in the city for a long time. His Ma
jesty the King, II. R. II. Princess
Liliuokalanl, Ills Ex. Gov. Dominis
and Col. C. II. Judd were present
in tho Royal box.
The programme was entirely
changed from that prescnted"oii
Monday evening. It opened with a
Piano Solo, "Rhapsodio llongrotse"
by Llszf; played In a most musl
cianly manner by Mr. Luekstono.
It is to be regretted ho was unablo
to obtain a better piano. Miss;
Downing' sang an "Aria" by Verdi
with excellent taste, and was loudly
encored, responding with a sweet
and taking little song. Mr. Mill
iner's rendering of a recitative and ,
air from Dcr Freischutz, was parti- w
cularly lino and pleased the audi-', '
once. Next appeared Remenyi, in
a fantasie on "Othello" by Ernst. ';
On entering, he was received with ,'.,,
most enthusiastic applause. And
how he did play ! To call Remenyi ,;
a violinist is a mis-use of language.
Under his hands a violin no longer .
remains a violin, but becomes a
musical instrument specially in- ,
vented by himself, on which he can"'
produce any effect. One cannot
criticise his playing. To hiin, his

feet art : he coverns it. lettinc tho

seem the two that, as he plays, wo' ,
lose sight of their distinct indivi- . .
He has awakened the city in the
matter of violin playing. The audi- ,
once never becomes weary of listen- 'J
ing, so that when Remenyi left the
stage, the never-ending applause ,
which broke forth compelled him to
return and give the Last Rose of
Summer, played as only ho can play
it. His next number consisted of a
"Nocturne" by Chopin and a ,-"
'Waltz' of his own composition which V
held the audience spell-bound. For ' $
an encore, he played an arrangement
of his own of native songs, intrri-
ducing Aloha Oc and Sweet Lei Le- '.fc
lum, sending the gallery portion v
of the audience fairly wild.
The Carnival of Venice, his last
number, showed the tremendous
command he has over the violin. '
Compelled to respond, he played a
Hungarian March with a pheno
menal volume of tone. Miss Down
ing rendered a song by Sullivan
very sweetly. Rubcnstein's beauti
ful song "Thou Art Like a Flower"
was excellently rendered by Mr.
Himmer, and richly deserved the
encore it obtained. Mr. Luckstone
as usual accompanied throughout
the evening with great taste and
