Tho Assembly met at 10 a. m.,
and was opened with prayer by

liens of mechanics and material
Rep. Dickey, presented a report
of a minority of tho Finance Com
mittee, signed by himself and Rep.
Hon. J. S. Walker, President of
the Legislative Assembly Sir: A
report of your Committee of
Finance wish to make a special
report on tho subject of cash tags in
the Department of the Interior.
It has been for years, we are in
formed, and now is, the habit of
that department to carry, as a part
of its cash on hand, receipted bills
for amounts paid out without
authority of Appropriation Bill. The
amount of such cash tags at the
present date is nearly $22,000. Of
this amount $10,907.03 was ex
pended during the past period. As
a settlement with the Minister of
Finance required that this amount
should be paid into the Treasury in
cash at the close of the period, a
settlement was delayed long enough
to allow the receipt of enough cash
in this period to cover the same.
The tags were then exchanged for
cash, and the amount paid over to
the Minister of Finance as of
March 31, 1886. The balance of
the tags now on hand are for current
expenses of the several bureaus,
which are not covered by the provi
sions of the -last Appropriation Bill.
The items belonging to last term
New Police Station $G,898 70
Light house expense 2,174 33
Government printing 97C 55
Compiling laws 405 00
Lighting streets 197 45
Retainer (E. Preston) for
land claim 250 00
Clerk of Uana election 5 00
Total $10,907 03
We are of opinion such practice
is deserving of censure, and should
not be allowed.
All receipts of the Interior De
partment, as well as all others,
should be turned promptly into the
Treasury, and no expenditure made
except by the Minister of Finance,
and by vouchers duly approved by
those in charge of departments or
bureaus and the Auditor General.
None of these vouchers have been
approved by the Auditor General,
although the amounts were paid in
some cases nearly two years ago.
C. H. Dickey,
Rep. Aholo was not in favor of
presenting little reports on minor
matters. When through with his
work on various reports he intended
to bring in a report from the Fi
nance Committee on this and other
matters. The party censured was
absent and there was no occasion
for haste. It was very true that the
committee found that moneys had
been received and immediately paid
out without going into the treasury.
This was the case with a large sum
paid out for the new police building,
contrary to the law requiring money
to be paid into the treasury within
one week. It was not the purpose
of the majority of the committee to
overlook this matter, but their gen
eral report was delayed on account
of the late date of presentation of
tho Interior Department.
Rep. Kalua was sorry so import
ant a report was delayed so long.
He moved it be accepted and laid
on the table. It mattered not that
tho Minister who had done this
thing was out of office. -The Legis
lature should be careful that this
should not become a precedent, but
put a check upon the unlawful pay
ing out of public money.
Rep. Haysolden seconded the mo
tion, The gentleman who had pre
sented the report spoke to him yes
terday, but he had been busy on
other committees so that he had not
fully considered the matter, lie
suggested to the presenter of the
report that he should wait till the
rest of thp committee were ready to
act, which would be in a fevr days.
Minister Gibson supported the
motion. He decidedly objected to
the modo of administration mention
ed in the report, but it had been the
practice to some extent under sev
eral administrations. It was car
ried on a good deal in prison man
agement, also in the Board of Health
affairs, When he came into office
as Minister pf Interior ho determ
ined to end the practlpo, and going
to the- Chief Clerk he asked blm Jf
ho had any cash on hand, receipts
from licenses or other sources. He
was informed that there was an
.. .. . . .. . .. . . ... .---. ,,- ,,.,,, ,,,,,, rmw , , ,, ljm, mjllM
amount of 82,989 and ordered tho
clerk to deposit It immediately in
tho Treasury. Tho Ministry' was
determined to havo the law carried
out in tho administration of tho
Rep. Kalua desired to amend his
motion, so as to call for tho report
of tho majority not later than Thurs
da)' next. Ho was sorry the pre
sent Minister of Interior had to
plead guilty to this species of ad
ministration, as, having been at the
head of affairs for tho past four
years, ho was fully responsible for
the practlcw. Having given his
sanction to it, it was amusing to sec
him wriggle out of responsibility.
Last session, when a vote of want of
confidence was proposed against the
Ministry for this ery practico, the
present Minister of Interior, then
Minister of Foreign Affairs, defend
ed the lino of action, and the house
excused tho Ministry by rejecting
the motion. It made him rejoice,
therefore, to hear this morning that
this was to be a reform Ministry in
Rep. Aholo would like to know
whether the hon. member desired
the committee's full report on
Thursday next, or only one on this
matter. As he had stated, he ob
jected to presenting fragmentary re
ports, but wanted to present a full
report bound and printed. This
minoiity report was rather late as
the hen was flown, and ho thought
the report should bo rejected, es
pecially as the majority intended to
include the matter in their main re
port. The committee had not been
wasting their time. They were
called from their duties this morn
ing to make a quorum in the house.
If, however, it was only on this
single matter that a repoit was re
quired by the house on Thursday,
the committee could probably com
ply with the motion.
Rep. Keau, as a member of the
Finance Committee, declined to
sign the teport because he thought
it was premature and he objected to
piecemeal repot ts.
Rep. Brown was in favor olsuch
a committee as the Finance present
ing its report as a body and not in
piecemeal, but still, at the same
time, in the circumstances of the
case, a change of Ministry having
occurred and certain irregularities
haviog been found in the Interior
Department, a minority of the com
mittee had seen fit to Luing the mat
ter to the notice of the house. This
course had given an opportunity to
the Minister of Interior to declare
for himself and his colleagues that
the practice in question was to be
stopped. The leport was, there
fore, one that is proper for all of the
committee to sign, and now it was
the right thing for the house to ac
cept it and lay it on the table until
the majority reported.
Rep. Thurston considered it would
be very improper to havo this report
returned to the member who had
presented it. The other members
of committee admitted the facts, also
the Minister of Interior, and why
should the house reject the report?
The Miniuter had stated that this
had been the practice in the past.
It might have been so before 1882,
but since then it had been so only
under a deliberate violation of the
law. He was glad to hear of the first
Minister's conversion, but feared it
was only skin-deep. Last session a
similar violation of law came up, it
being found that tho Ministry of
which the present Minister of In
terior was the head, had paid out
$54,000 in defiance of the law, and
that Minister defended the action
with all the force of which he was
capable. The evil in his case seem
ed to be dyed in the wool, and this
house should censure this practice of
unlawful expenditure of tho revenue,
with sufficient emphasis to prevent
the Minister of Interior or any other
member of the Cabinet payiug out
public money without authority of
law. Probably tho enactment of a
provision suggested by him the
other day, to make such practice a
criminal' offense, would bo tho only
Rep. Kaulukou objected to the
report because it was not translated
into Hawaiian. Although he under
stood it as rendered by the Inter
preter, yet a report of his own was
rejected the other day on that
ground. He moved the report be
returned to the member presenting
The motion to lay on the table
was put and declared carried, but
doubt being expressed, the ayes and

Rep. Rlohord8on. from the En
grossing Committee, reported that
tho bill to prevent obstructions on
the streets, ordered for third reading
to-day, was not ready, and asked
an extension of time. On motion
of Rep. Castle, tho request was
granted, and tho third reading of tho
bill def cried till Tuesday next.
Rep. Thurston moved a suspen
sion of tho niles to allow him to
present a petition, which carried,
and ho presented a petition from
Kalawao, Molokai, In which tho
lepers complained of their food, and
another from the same place, asking
that the legislative committee of
visitation be sent to tho settlement
as soon as possible. He moved the
petitions bo refened to tho special
committee of visitation, and was
speaking on his motion when Minis
ter Dare called him to order, on tho
ground that the President had tho
reference of petitions to committees.
The motion cairicd.
Rep. Nahale gave notice of an
act to amend sec. 2, chap. 43, laws
of 1882, to reduce the poll tax from
$1.00 to 75 cents.
The President appointed Minister
Dare on various special committees
in place of the ex-Attornoy-General.
Rep. Thurston presehtcd a resolu
tion that the special committee ap
pointed to go to Kalawao, Molokai,
to investigate the condition of affairs
theie, do carry out the object for
which they were appointed, by pro
ceeding to Molokai as soon as ar
rangements can be made for taking
them there. He spoke of the im
portance of complying with tho
prayers of the unfortunate people
as greater than the importance
of having the public buildings
visited. If those people were
shut up there and their petitions
disregarded they would be liable
eventually to become desperate.
Minister Dare rose to a point of
order, and was speaking of what he
heard in the lobby before he be
came a member, on the difficulty Qf
sending the committee to Molokai,
when Rep. Thurston called him to
order because he had no light to
discuss the question but state his
point of order. The Minister then
stated his point, which was that the
only action the house was competent
to take was to call for the com
Rep. Kaulukou moved the order
of the day.
Reps. Thurston, Richardson and
Brown objected to the latter motion,
while a resolution was pending.
Minister Dare quoted a rule of
the house that a motion for the order
of the day was admissible after the
house bad been one hour hearing le
ports and resolutions.
The President ruled tho motion to
Minister Gibson .rose, saying he
had a resolution to present.
Several members protested against
the Minister being allowed the privi-,
lege after Rep. Thurston's resolution
Minister Gibson said it was on the
Fourth of July.
Rep. Brown said he did not care
what it was about. What was sauce
for the goose was sause for the

of the rules'to allow the Minister of
Interior to present his Fourth of
