Rep. Lilikalani gave notice of a
resolution, that, whereas reference
is made in foreign newspapcts to a
new treaty between the United
Slates and this Kingdom, one of
the provisions of which is the ces
sion of Pearl Harbor on this island
to the United States, therefore this
Assembly would ask the Minister of
Fordism Affairs to lav before the
house any information of such new
treaty in his possession.
Minister Gibson said he did not
think it was necessary to delay re
plying to n resolution of this kind,
lie would therefore say that the
Foreign Olllce has not received one
line relating to this treaty outside of
what was in the newspapers. , There
was nothing in reference to any pro
posed cession of Peail Harbor or
any portion of Hawaiian territory
whatever. Probably a succeeding
mail might bring sonic information
fiom His Majesty's envoy at Wash
ington, but in the meantime lie
could say that the Hawaiian Govern
ment has no information legarding
Rep. Kalua thought the Govern
ment should lay everything regard
ing the new ticaty, or any other
m Iter l elating to treaty affairs, be
fore the house. Perhaps this Gov
ernment made the proposal to the
Tinted States Government and are
awaiting a reply. There was a great
deal of talk before the Assembly
met that a new treaty was being
made, and that part of it was that
Pearl Harbor was to be ceded to the
Minister Gibson said lie might be
able to reply to the honorable mem
ber with regard to his expression of
anxiety. He begged to state to the
Assembly that he had prepared a
repoit of the Minister of Foreign,
Affairs, which was in the hands of
the printers, and he hoped to be
able to present it in a few days.
This report would contain a full
statement of the action of the Gov
ernment on tho treaty question and
all matters hearing thereon. He
would anticipate the report by say
inc that His Majesty's envoy had
been instructed to sign a renewal of
the reciprocity treaty without any
changes whatever from the existing
one. That had been done, and the
tieaty awaits the ratification of the
American Senate. He begged to
state in conclusion that, in regard to
the cession of Pearl Harbor, or any
territory, such a thing had never been
contemplated, and that this Minis
try would not bo sitting thcro now
if they had made any proposal of
Rep. Aholo moved that the reso
lution be returned to the honorable
member, as its object had been com
plied with. Carried.
Rep. Raker presented a resolution
that the Minister of the Interior be
requested to state the reasons for
removing Hon. II. M. Whitney from
the ofllco of Postmaster-General.
Rep. Castle seconded the resolu
tion. Rep. Kalua questioned the pro
pi icty of the house discussing this
resolution, as the Assembly did not
have control of tho olllce in ques
tion. He moved that the resolution
be returned to tho mover.
Rep. Aholo did not think the
liouso had a right to inquire into
the matter. If it had, it could also
inquire into the dismissal of Mr.
Parke, Mr. Allen and other olllcials.
He had read the correspondence in
the matter, and it explained itself.
Rep. Maker said lie did not ask
for information from any member,
but from the Minister.
Rep. Kalua's motion carried.

an act to repeal an act approved
