MONDAY, MAY 17, 188G.
TIHUTEENTlt L '
FiuuAY, Mny 1-iih.
Hep. Thurston sulil it seemed the
.Government wus in any way morally
bound to pay this money. At the
same time be wanted to vote intel
ligently. He thought the item
should be deferred till the leport of
the Minister was there.
Minister Guliek said the interest
was live percent, according to the
savings bank regulations.
Minister Gibson said there was no
arrangement in tins convention his
colleague hnd recalled that state
ment but it was part of the pro
tocal. lie read the terms from his
report as Minister of l'oicigu
Affairs, contained in the discussion
of the protocol between himself and
the Japanese Minister, and said
these items were expected to be
binding as honorable conditions.
In subsequent correspondence there
was an understanding that these
arrangements should be earned out,
that there should be a reserve fund,
ami that this reserve fund should be
taken care of by this Government.
Ucp. Castle, in reference to the
remaik that the whole scheme of
Japanese immigiation Mould come
before the Assembly, said lie would
like to ask a few moic questions.
On page of the Finance Minis
ter's repoit was the amount of
$ . Was that this deposit.
Minister Guliek It is.
Hep. Castle Is it a special depo
sit in the treasury or in a bank in
Minister Guliek would merely
refer to his pievioiis statement. It
is held under the usual terms of
deposit in the savings bank.
Hep. Castle asked under what
head the rnvymcnl of money to
Japanese out of this fund would
come. lie would say for that siity
of the house that they did not pro
pose to interfere with the carrying
out of this Government's obliga
tions to foreign countries. Hut in
view of the position taken by the
present Minister of Foreign Affairs
in 1880 and 1882, he must say the
Ministry seemed to come short.
The plain fact was that, without
any authority whatever, the Gov
ernment had effected a loan, lie
asked whether this was a special
deposit with the tieasury. He
found in the Finance Minister's
report that pait of the revenue of
this Government during the last
period was this Japanese fund. He
thought the position was iather an
extraordinary one. "While not wish
ing to bring the Government into
trouble with Japan, he should vote
for postpQiu'nj! this item.
obto Macfarlane haul he would
like to ask the Ministers if this
money was subject to call was it a
call loan? Also, he asked if the
proposal of Mr. Hpreckels was car
ried out. Does the S-'00,000 depo
sited by Mr. Sprockets lemain in
the treasury, or is it in Spieckel's
Hep. Dickey said, as the Minister
did not seem disposed to answer
that question, he suppoited the
raotiou of the member for Molokai
(Mr. Thurston). It appeared the
Government got 200,000 from
Spreckels and that only 60,000 was
in the treasury at the close of the
period. If the Japanese Consul had
drawn on that fund it would hue
put the Minister of Finance in
Minister Gibson said the first
understanding was that this money
was to be put in the Savings
Hank. There weic subsequent in
structions to the effect that the
Japanese Government desiied that
this Government should take care of
this fund and nay it to them at
such time as might be icquiied. Jt
was a distinct understanding that
there snoulil ue no can on inc Ha
waiian Government without notice
except in case of sickness. There
had been occasional drafts the
consul representing that there was
a man sick or a paiticular case that
fchould be sent home. Theic was
uo gencial call on the Government
for this amount.
Hep. Thurston said the Minister
stated that this money was placed
there by the desire of the Japanese
Commissioner. Did they authorize
the Government to expend it?
Minister Gibson said the Japanese
Government did not want the money
in ptivatu hands, but wanted this
Government to take care of it
without any conditions whatever.
Noble Macfarlane said the Min
ister's leply seemed to be satisfac
tory, and he thought the fact that
the Government was paying inteiest
to the Japanese seemed to be a
satisfactory answer to tho member
for Molokai's question.
Hep. Thurston said a clause in
the Appropriation Hill forbids any
money being paid out .without
authority Now tills appears as
Government realizations. Hywhat
authority lias any of this money
Minister Guliek As L remarked
I would refer to the statute which
refers to thu establishment of a
postal savings bank. If that is not
authority I have no more to say on
the matter. That act orders all
jnonoys to bo deposited in the treas
ury. With regard to money being
mll out, ns this money lias been
iirouglit in from time, to lime, there1
nave been s-iimll ill aft-.. The-io iliafli
liholt by the consul with full
information as to which contract
t.iey aio drawn on. When the money
vNus p. lid in fioni time to time by
employers, of couise it went to the
credit of their respective account.
When these drafts were paid they
went to the debit side.
Hep. Dole 1 have been wailing
for mi answer to Mr. Castle's ques
tion a very peilineiit one by what
authority was this money paid. This
whole arrangement is on the
bticnir'li of n verbal undeistanding
with the Japanese. There is not a
woid in the treaty about it. It is
provided under thu contracts, brielly,
that one-quarter of the money shall
bo retained and placed in some
fund. The Minister of Inleiior
says tlio authority for this proceed
ing is under the law of last session
for a Hawaiian l'ostal Savings
Hank. I should like to ascertain If
the Minister has consulted his col
league, the Attorney-General. It
is almost incredible that he could
deviate so materially from this
law, because it is entirely on a
verbal understanding witli the
Japanese Government. The Minis
ter nets authorityJfor acting from
this Legislature, not from the
Japanese Government. The l'ostal
Savings act authorizes the l'ostmas-ter-G
uncial and his employees and
none others, and section 0 author
ises the repayment of these moneys.
There is no other authorization
whatever. Here is a law of four
teen sections restricting and guaul
ing this matter in every .particular.
The Government aie acting out
side of this law. They have not
established a savings bank under it,
but a bank in the treasury olllce.
It is not a savings bank under this
law. 1 think the Minister of the
Interior deceives censuro for ignor
ing so completely the laws of last
Legislature. 1 Ins is not the place,
perhaps, to speak of that, but I be
lieve in urging strictness in keeping
to the laws passed by the Legis
lature, or else thetx; will bono end
of trouble. I suppose wo arc justi
fied in believing that the Auditor
General is ported in regard to this
matter, and that these iceeipts have
passed under his supervision, and
that when his repoit conies in we
shall hae full information. We
have no understanding when these
amounts may be demanded. They
may be demanded when there is no
money in the treasury, and we may
be in a position when the Japanese
Government may dictate to us, or
the Government may havcto either
give the money illegally or ignore
the claims of that Government. This
postal savings baiik was intended
for the benefit of the middle class
of every nationality Poituguese,
Chinese, Hawaiians and they have
adopted a new principle of starting
a savings bank for Japanese only.
1 should like very much to know
also why the Hawaiian l'ostal Sav
ings Hank net. was not carried out.
Minister Gibson wished to reply
to on point that this was only a
mer vc ml understanding. He
reau from his repoit of Foieign Af
fairs, to show that the anangeincnt
in question was a matter of corres
pondence and not merely of conver
sation. Noble Hhodes All these ques
tions and answers give a certain
amount of information, but on the
whole it is very fragmentary and
very unsatisfactory. 1 think, and I
cannot get over it, that wo are pre
mature in discussing this Appro
priation Hill. We ought to have the
leportsof the Ministers in befoic dis
cussing it. For my pait I should
have had some curiosity to see how
some of these accounts would be
checked in the Auditor-General's
books I do not know whether he
keeps books. I should like to see
copies and cxtiacts fiom his books
and certificates of amounts paid.
Hut heie is a ceitaiu incongruity in
tho replies given by Ministers to
questions which have been asked
them. Theie is an appiopriation
usked for, for the, payment of inter
. est on the Japanese fund, of Hire
thousand dollars. Hut what about
the fund itself V If this Government
is acting as a savings bank for the
Japanese Government, they must
he called upon to pay part of the
money deposited in that bank. And
if these leceipts of dopost in the
treasury have been made and have
been paid out without the sanction
of thu Auditor-General, they have
been paid out altogether without the
authority of law. I understand by
the Ministers that such payments
have been made. If theso pay
ments have been made, they have
been made contrary to law. And
if they aie to be lepeated in future
there ought to be piovision made
for them in the Appropriation
Hill. For all these icasoiifa I
look upon all these matters with a
gicat deal of dissatisfaction, and I
cannot seo how "the-Assembly can
go on with the Appropriation Hill
-without the repoits of Mjnistcrs.
At any ralo these appiopriations
cannot bo paid until they are fully
entered in the Appropriation Dill
or soiiie law is mado for paying them
out. As tliey are at picsent in tho
repoit of the Finance Minister, they
appear to nu if they do not ap
pear they aio In reality a sort of
lloating debt. If the arrangement
has been completed with thu
Japanese Government it should
have- been laid before us before ouo
dollar had been paid out. If thu
aiiangcment has not been made, if
moi oy has been handed over to Mr.
Sp.ceke's ho should linvo tho inaa
flgcuicnt of It. AV any rato to mo
it appears that wo aie all in a 'mud
dle that we cannot very well gel out
of without the lepoits, and we
ought to have those leports. X
therefore move that tho counnitte
rise and revolt progress.
The motion cairled by 18 to 11.
Doubt having been expiessed, a
standing vote resulted in 22 to a
minority not considered neiessary
On the Assembly resuming Noble
Cleghorn gave the repoit of commit
tee of the whole, which was adopted.

heniii nlated what seemed lo mo either
a fabulous stury or a marvellous cute.
Tlio story was that a poor sullenr who
had not been able to lie down In Led for
six lon: years, glen up to die by i II the
Doctors, bad been gpiuillly cured by
some I'atent Medicine. It was lobited
with the more implicit confidence from
the circumstance, as was htild, that thu
Vicar of Llanrystyd win familiar witli
the tacts, and could vouch lurlhe truth
of (he report.
llaving a llttlu curiosity to know how
such stories grow in travelling, I took
the liberty while at tho village ot Man.
rjttvd to call upon the Vltar, the Ho v.
T Evans, and to enquire about this
wonderful cure. Ihouli a total strau.

graciously cnteitainid mu in a half
lioiir'sconvers.itloii, principally touching
the ease of .Mr. Pugh, in which they
toi'ined lo lake a deep and sympathetic
inteiest, having been familiar with his
Biilliirliigs, and now rejoiced In what
seemed 10 them a most reinaikablecure.
The Vicar lemaiked that huptcsnincd
bis name had been coiinecku with the
repoit from his having mentioned the
elie to Mr. John Thomas, a cliumUl of
Llanou. lie t-nid .Mr. Pugh was former,
ly a icsldentof their paiislt, but wnsnow
living in the parish of Llmiddulnol.
He strongly vouched Mr. Win. Pugh's
chaiacter as a rexpeclatilu fanner ami
worthy of credit. I left the venerable
Vicar witli a livelier tense of the happy
relation of a paslor and people, feeling
that lie was one who truly sympathised
witli all who aie alllictul in mind, body,
On my return to Abeiystwith, I was
iluprciibid wllh a detlic to see Mr. Pimli,
whose reputation stood so high. His
farm Is called I'lincoin-Mawr, signifying
"above the dingle," situated near the
summit of a smooth louiid hill, over,
looking n beautiful valley in which is
situated the lovely ivymantled Church
of Mauddeinol. I iouud Mr. Pugh,

that I had iiiinu to learn fiom bis own
lips, whnl theie was of until in the re
ports. Mr. Pugh lemarked that his neigh.
l,o:s had taken a kindly and symp
athetic interest in bis case lor many
years, but of latu their interest had been
gi cully awakened by a happy change in
his condition. What you lepoit as hav.
imr hiaid abroad, said he, is substant
ially true, willi one exception. 1 never
understood that my ease was ever given
up as hopeless by auy Physician. I
have been treated by scvcial Doctors
hereabouts, as good as any In Wales, but
unfoituaately no preset ipllon of theirs
ever brought Ihu desired relief.
Fifteen years ago, he said, I first be.
came (oa-ulous ol a sour and deranged
stomach and los of appetite, which tho
Doctors told me was Dyspepsia. What
lood 1 could hold in my siomacb seem
ed to do mo no good and was often
thiown up with painful letnliings. This
was followed aftera lime with a hoarse
ness and a law soreness of tlio throat
which tlio Doctors called bronchitis,
and I was treated for that, but with
little success Then came shortness of
breath and a sense of suU'ocaiion, espe
cially nights, with clammy sweat, and I
would have lo get out of bed and some
times open a door or window in winter

About six years aeo I became so li.id
that I could not bleep In bed, but had to
