MR. W. L. GREEN'S LETTER.
The following letter speaks plainly
and to tho point, and will be en
dorsed by all thinking men :
"Hoxoluli', August 23rd, 1881.
"To the Chairman of the Committee
of the Testimonial Reception to
the Independent members or the
"Silt: 1 regret thutti slight indis
position prevents mo from being pre
sent at the Testimonial Reception to
night of the Independent members
of the Legislative Assembly. I have
not usually attended political meet
ings, but the circumstances connect
ed with the late session of the Legis
lature are of such a nature, as to
render a united expression of public
opinion on the political situation at
its close of more than ordinary im
portance. "Honest difference of opinion as
to the proper measures to be passed,
and of the appropriations of money
to bo made by the Legislative body
arc to be expected in all countries,
and it is for the minority to accept
the laws which the majority .decide
upon ; but in reviewing some of the
Acts recently introduced, and the
appropriation of money gijautcd, it
requires tho utmost stretch of
charitable construction to conclude
that those who introduced and voted
for them, believe them to be for the
benefit of the country. Indeed, I
am sure that I only echo the general
sentiment, on recalling the course of
the Government of this country for
the last two years, when I say that
our political system as it has lately
been worked, threatens to be a fail
ure, and that whether we term it a
constitutional monarchy or give it
any other name, it bids fair to
degenerate into a system of spolia
tion, pure and simple, in which tho
tax-payers will be called on to sup
port in extravagance, idlers and in
competents. "Apparently in reply to the gen
eral dissatisfaction which the flagrant
course of the inal-appropriation of
the public moneys has necessarily
tended to produce, unprcccdcntcdly
large sums have been voted; ostensi
bly for the maintenance of "orders",
and for which extraordinary and use
less expenditure the same tax-payers
are called upon to provide the means.
"In the ordinary course of events
may 1 not say in the rapid march
of political events in the present da'
such a system can only endure for
a very short period. All honor then
to those who have pursued the true
method of retaining for us our King
and our Constitution, and have
desired to assure the permanence of
both, by endeavoring to preserve for
them the respect and affection of the
"I have the honor to be, Sir, your
most obedient servant.
"W. L. Giikek."

Mr. G. Brown presented the re
port of the Finance Committee upon

mitted the other night. Their find
ing is summarized in the closing
paragraph of their report as follows:
"In view of the fact that none of
the expenditures represented by
these bills seem to have been author
ized by the proper departments, and
especially of the fact that the House
has not been given an opportunity to
properly investigate the items, wc
recommend that no appropriation be
The report was signed by Messrs.
G. Brown, W. O. Smith, W. E.
Rowcll and J. Kcau, Mr. J. Nawahi
being absent. It was adopted.
Mr. Kaulukoti moved a resolution
to insert an item of 82,000 for the
relief of persons rendered destitute
by last night's fire, and to appoint
the Attorney-General and his deputy
a committee to ascertain the proper
subjects for relief out of the appro
priation. Minister Neumann suggested thai
the Governor of Oahu be substituted

proposal, as it would establish a bad
Mr. W. O. Smith also opposed the

pathized with the object, but it
would be next to impossible to as
certain in this case who should be

Mr. Rowcll moved that the reso

its title. Carried.
Mr. Kaulukoti moved tho bill pass
Mr. C. Brown opposed the bill.

At 12:15 the House took a recess
till 1 :30.
There being no quorum in the
nftemoon, the Houso adjourned till
Monday, August 25.
Tho House met at 10 a. m.
The bill relating to tuition fees
was read a third time and passed.
The Opium Bill was discussed on
Mr. Kaulukoti said there were
twenty-eight places throughout the
business part of Honolulu where
opium was sold, and to reject this
bill would be to encourage those
places. Licensing the drug would
yield a net revenue of 870,000.
Mr. Dole opposed tho bill as not
only bad in its object, but poorly
conceived in its method.
Mr. Bishop was of opinion that
the enhanced price of opium under
license would stimulate smuggling.
Now all opium found was known to
be illicit; under license it would be
impossible to tell where the drug
came from. Under license, also, it
would lie available even to school
Mr. C. Brown was m favor, if the
drug were to be legalized, of setting
tho privilege of selling it up at
auction. He was opposed to having
it licensed, and said that, while un
der a former law natives, being able
to procure it readily, were very
much addicted to opium, none but a
limited number used it now.
Mr. Aholo did not believe in the
licensed sale of opium if the sale
could be stopped altogether, but as
it was here all the time lie believed
the Government ought to share in
the profits with the merchants.
Mr. Kauhanc failed to sec how
the bill would prevent smuggling,
as the licensee could engage in that
if he chose.
At noon the House took a recess
The ayes and noes were taken
upon the indefinite postponement of
the Opium License Bill, which
carried as follows :

A motion to reconsider was lost.
Minister Gulick moved a resolu
tion to authorize the secretary to
make a return to the House of the
bills and vouchers, amounting to
823,4-11.92, for palace expenses,
reported back to the House by the
Finance Committee; also, for corres
pondence relating to Portuguese
Mr. G. Brown moved an amend
ment to include coronation bills,
which was accepted by the mover
of the resolution. Carried.

tion Dill was resumed at the Finance

were voted down.

salary of the Deputy Sheriff of Koo
lauloa from 830 to 850, which was
lost, and a motion by Mr. Nakalcka
to make it S10, carried.
On motion of Mr. Aholo, a new
item of $15 a month for a policeman
at Ilonokawal was inserted.
Mr. Gardner moved to have sis
instead of three policemen in liana.
Mr. . O. Smith said there were
18 unpaid constables in tho district.
Tho motion waa lost.
Mr. Kaulukoti moved to reduce
the salary of the Deputy Sheriff of
Makawao from 8125 to 8100.
Mr. Widemann asked for an inter
pretation of a remark he thought he
heard from the honorable member.
Mr. Kaulukoti disclaimed making
any further remark than had been
Mr. Widemann said lie understood
the honorable member to say, "Let
us reduce this white man's salary,"
and he should keep that in mind.
Mr. Kaulukoti admitted using the
words, and said the Hon. Noble could
keep on not liking it ns long as he
The motion was lost.
Mr. Keau moved to insert a new
item of Sl,200 for a messenger of
the Attorney General's department.
Minister Neumann favored the
proposed item, and moved further
that the incidentals be raised from

fuscd, and a motion to reconsider
On motion of Mr., Pilipo, 82,500
aid to the Kawaiahao Seminary was
A motion to increase the aid to
Iolani College from 85,000 to 80,000
Mr. C. Drown moved to strike out
the item of $2,500 for Professor
Ilildebrand's work on Hawaiian Do
tany, giving as a reason that tho
House refused to pass an appropria
tion for Judge Fornander's History
Minister Gibson said it was not
unreasonable for the Hawaiian mem
bers to have voted against an appro
priation for a book that was in an
unknown language to their people.
In this case, however, the work was
neither English nor Hawaiian, but a
scientific work in Latin.
Mr. Widemann argued that while
both books were worthy of support,
the History was the more important
one. As they did not know where
all the money was to come from, he
should vote against the Botany book,
but if the History was before them
he should vote for it.
Minister Gibson considered it
would bo a reflection upon the coun
try abroad to have' run up an unpre
cedented' large Appropriation Bill,
and struck out a few small items for
the encouragement of learning.
Mr. W. O. Smith said these reflec
tions would have come in better
when members of the House were
urging for a reasonable subsidy in
stead of the exorbitant one granted
the Oceanic Steamship Company.
The item was struck out.
For the Hawaiian Dictionary and
School History of the Hawaiian
Islauds, 81,500 was inserted.
The Education Department items
were passed as a whole, and a motion
to reconsider was lost.
Under tho Board of Health, Mr.
Kaulukoti moved to insert 810,000
for water pipes at Kalawao and Ka
htupapa. Mr. Widemann opposed the item.
Minister Gibson agreed with the
Tho motion passed.
Mr. Kaulukoti moved to insert
810,000 for a new building for
leper's children at Kalawao not
affected by the disease.
Minister Gibson said there were
sixty children of leper parents who
wero not affected, and about 30 who
were affected. Some thought the
disease would yet develop itself in
all children of leprous parentage, but
there were some who grew up to fifty
years of ago without having it. There
had been an appeal from tho whole
community that thoso children should
be given separate accommodation.
Mr. Dolo supported the motion.
Mr. C. Drown thought the home
should be away from Kalawao, and
in that case tho Government would
have to provido for land, and the
nearer Honolulu the better, as
physicians would be able to give it
more attention and to tell how long
children would bo in exhibiting the
diseaso, if they contracted it at all.
lie moved to amend tho item to
Mr. Bishop considered thero
would bo somo advantage in having
tho home near tho hospital. Most
of the children aro infants of five to
fifteen years, and their parents aro
there. A large appropriation had
been mado for tho building and
maintenance of hospitals, 810,000.
He did not know what the intention
was as to building, but lie thought
there ought not to be more Bpent
on hospitals outside of the settle
ments for tho next two years. Too
much had been spent in that way
the last two years. The appropria
tion was mado for special places,
but it was largely spent in enlarging
this place over here. That was
intended for the treatment of persons
in the first stages of tho disease and
it should have been kept to that
and never have grown to the present
size at all. There was plenty of
room at that hospital, and it seemed
to him that was the place it ought to
be. If it was necessary to make a
new place for taking care of those
children let them do so, but he
thought a special placo should bo
made for them at the settlement. It
seemed to him that at that place
down hero there ought to be a little
money spent to prevent lepers from
coining outside, where they could
shake hands, kiss, and exchange
pipes with their friends. If we arc
going to have segregation of lepers
let us have it right. Visiting lepers
out of mere curiosity ought not to
Minister Gibson made a few re
marks about the work of tho Sisters
of Mercy among the lepers, antici
pating great results from their skill
Mr. Cleghorn thought lepers
should bo divided into three classes--the
worst cases going to Molokai ;
those who could be benefited going
to the place here, and children to
be sent to the proposed House.
The item passed at $15,000.
A new item of $500 for a bridge
at Waikolu, for the convenience of
lepers, was inserted.
Items for the Health Department
were then passed as a whole, and a
motion to reconsider lost.
Mr. Gulick asked liberty of the
House to move for the insertion of
two new items, which he would call,
"Miscellaneous Items." The first
was for repairs and completion of
the Palace, $8,932.03. Tho items
wero actual bills for work done,
which he could vouch for as having
been done on the building, faith
fully completing tho work. The
work was done before his (Minister
Gulick's) incumbency. He would
place the subject in this way that
the Government having derived
benefit to this amount of labor and
material, and the money now being
owing to these merchants and me
chanics for the same, he submitted
it was a matter of simple justice
that he should be enabled to pay
Mr. W. O. Smith asked if these
were not the same bills as appeared
in that account of $23,000 and odd.
Minister Gulick replied, "They
Mr. W. O. Smith said that, then,
every item in that account has been
voted out and reconsideration re
fused. If the Ministers had asked
the IIouso at first to make a dis
crimination it might have been dif
ferent. But all the bills wero
examined, reported upon and
thrown out. On the first discussion
the responsibility was thrown upon
the Chamberlain, the Ministers say
ing they did not know anything
about the expenditures. When dis
cussing that matter he went over
the list and said there were some
belonging to Foreign Affairs, such
as reception of foreign guests at
Coronation; but tho Minister was
surprised did not know of that.
Now, the Minister of the Interior
claims that the works wero ordered
by tho Department.
