Rep. Kalua presented n resolution
to the following effect: Whereas it
appears that large numbers of Chi
nese are continually coming into this
countiy, and whereas certain regula
tions were published restricting the
coming in of Chinese, and certain
rules were published by Ills Excel
lency the Minister of Foreign Affairs
that no more than 25 Chinese would
be permitted to come by a single
vessel ; therefore resolved, that the
Minister -of Foreign Affairs be re
quested to report to this house in
writing if the said restrictions have
been carried out bince those regula
tions were published, and to state
whether any mure than the number
allowed by the regulations, have
been permitted to enter. He said
that long before the representatives
in this Assembly were elected
certain regulations were publish
ed stating that no more than
a certain number of Chinese were
to be permitted. The public seeing
that notice were generally much
pleased with it, considering it a
measure that would check a large
number of Chinese from coming
into the country. But while the
notice still appeared in the news
papers it was observed that large
numbers of Chinese were permitted
to come iu. Nearly every vessel
that entered took large numbers of
them very much in excess of the
number stated to be allowed. The
last steamer brought a laige num
ber, and small-pox with them, yet
they were allowed to land. For
tunately they were segregated and
the disease did not spread. This
resolution simply meant to inquire
whether the regulation of the Minis
ter of Foreign Affairs hud been
carried out and the restrictions en
forced. Rep. Katilukou .was veiy much
in favor of the resolution but if its
wording was strictly followed what
the member was trying to obtain
would not be accomplished. If it
asked whether any more than tho
regulation allowed were permitted
to enter then tho Minister would
have'something to answer. It was
not the people of the country who
wanted Chinese: it was the planta
tion owners who would flood the
country with them. One thing about
the Chinese, however, was that they
never attempted to meddle with
politics like some other nationali
ties. He could not support tho
Rep. Aliolo was in favor of the
resolution, except that part which
asked for a report in writing.
Rep. Thurston believed that the
member for Ililo (Kaulukou) was
correct, that tho resolution would
not accomplish its object. Ho
moved in amendment, to add,
"that if such rules have not been
enforced, what is the reason for
Rep. Dolo said the reply should
be iu writing. lie had an impres
sion that tho regulations, although
thoy had the appearance of restrict
ing Chinese, had a clause which
nullified them. He was informed
that under that clause blank forms
of passports wero supplied to parties
to import Chinese for laborers. If
that was true then the regulations
were destroyed in effect. Judging
from the very largo number of Chi
nese which had landed during tho
last fow months by nearly every
ship Uicro might bo some truth in
that information. Ho was also in
formed that the Hawaiian Consul
General in Snn Francisco, Mr. Mc
Kinley, issues passports freely, and
sells them, and receives largo fees
Rep. Kaunamano moved a re
amendment that tho 'Minister give
the desired information verbally,
Minister Gibson seconded this
motion, which enrried, and the reso
lution as amended then passed.
Minister Gibson said that, as ho
stated yesterday, he had prepared a
report of M10 Foreign Olllco for tho
past biennial period. Among other
matters in that report there would
bo found a full statement of the re
strictions placed upon Chinese, in
cluding the recent rules passed by
the Cabinet Council. With respect
to tills particular matter the report
would satisfy the ileslrc 01 lionorainc
members who wished a statement in
writing. He hoped to be able to
present his report the day after to
morrow. Anticipating the report to
mako an immediate reply, ho said
there were three or four occasions on
which regulations had been Issued.
The first one was to grant return
passports to all Chinamen leaving
the country. The next one was
limiting the number of Chinese ad
mitted by 0110 vessel, outside of
those having return passports, to 25.
Since this had little effect, it was or
dered that none but holders of pass
ports should be admitted. That le
gulation could not have reached the
Hawaiian Consul-General at Hong
kong earlier than March 25th, so
that the arrivals by the Gaelic and
other vessels were not an infringe
ment of that rule. Regarding
the member for Liliue's understand
ing that passports were Issued for
importing Chinese laborers, that re
ferred to two or three instances
when the Planters' Labor and Sup
ply Company were making demands
for laborers,' but that would not be
permitted under the new regulations.
It must not be understood that
those requests, to the amount of six
or seven thousand, were complied
with, as passports were only issued
for a few hundred. Willi regard to
reports that Consul-General McKiu
ley was issuing passports, and charg
ing $5 or $10 for them, he begged
to inform the honorable member
that he was entirely incorrect. Thu
Consul-General was not issuing a
single passpoit, but simply vised the
passports of Chinamen coining from
Hongkong, charging $1 for each.
He felt sure that, when the last
regulations were fully iu force, the
stream of Chinamen coining here
would cease, because there nic
no longer any passports issued for
returning Chinamen except for tho.se
well-known Chinamen doing busi
ness here, and it would bo a great
hardship to prevent them returning.
It was the earnest desire of His
Majesty's Government to restrict
the iinmisration of Chinese, consist
ing as it did almost wholly of males.
It would bo their duty to restrict
the immigration of any nationality
with so large a proportion of males.
A perusal of his report would leave
nothing further to be desired in the
way of information on this subject.
Rep. Thurston said one point was
not covered by the reply, and asked
if the Consul at Hongkong did not
know that no more than 25 could
come before the 25th March.
. Minister Gibson said 'of the 120 or
130 arrived by tho last steamer
every one above the prescribed 25
had a passport, recognized at the
Custom House as in due form.
Minister Gulick introduced an
act to provide for the issuance of
copyright, and moved its first read
ing by title. Carried.
Rep. Dickey gave notice of an
act to repeal an act to regulate the
remission of tuition fees in the pub
lic schools. Also, nn act t6 exempt
all native-born Hawaiian subjects
from payment of the road tax.
The President reported that the
address in reply to His Majesty's
speech had been engrossed and was
ready for presentation.
Rep. Kalua moved, seconded by
Ministpr Gibson, that the committee
who prepared the address present it
to His Majesty. Carried.
Rep. Aholo moved, as the house
would not have enough work to
keep it in session unless it made
work for itself, that tho copyright
bill be read a second time to-morrow.
Rep. Castle moved nn adjourn
ment till 10 to-morrow, which car
ried, the house rising at 12:10.
