Tho house resumed tit 2 o'clock.
Hop. Aliolo, from the Finance
Committee, presented the following
repoit on tho Hem in tho Appropria
tion Bill "Road tax unexpended to
be expended on the districts where
collected, SG7,376. 17 :M
Hon. J. S. Walkku, President
Legislative Assembly Sin: Your
committee, in accordance with tho
instructions of the Assembly, have
examined carefully into the matter
of the item of road tax unexpended.
"We And that the amounts reappro
piiated under this head by tho Leg
islature of 1882 and 1884, and the
amount now proposed by tho Appro
priation Bill, ate all incorrect.
Your committee, therefore, ascer
tained first the correct amount un
expended in each district on March
31, 1882, by a careful examination
of the books of tho Finance aud
Interior Departments. To these
anrtnmts arc added the receipts, in
each districts dining the four years
ending March 31, 188G. From the
amounts thus obtained we deducted
the amount expended in each dis
trict during said four years, and
the balances thus obtained are the
amounts which should be nowie
appropriated. Your committee present herewith
a statement showing the above cal
culations in detail, and recommend
that the balances of road tax unex
pended in each district as shown
therein be appropriated separately
in order that no confusion maj' arise
hereafter on this subject. If tho
amount is appropriated in a lump
sum, the Minister of Finance has no
means of knowing when anydistiict
overdraws, as he has only an ac
count with tho whole appropriation ;
but if it is appropriated by districts
he can see at a glance if any attempt
to oveidraw is made.
The total amonnt of road tax un
expended in the districts -where col
lected as per said statement is $82,
592.17, instead of 867,376.17; a
difference of S15.216.

On motion of Rep. Brown the re
port of the committee was adopted.

the rules, gave notice of an act for

OKDEIt OF TIIE DAY.
The house went into committcejof
the w hole on the Appropriation Bill,
Noble Cleghorn in the chair.
Interior Department (Jontinukl.
Suppoitof Piisoucrs $90,(j00
Rep. Brown found by the report
that out of this item were taken
S886.75 for capture of escaped
prisoners, hay and grain, and S5,
327.01 for incidentals. He did ilot
know whether the hay and grain
were for the prisoners. These items'
ought to be separated. He moved
the item be referred to the Minister
of the Interior, with instructions to
rcpoi t back separate items for sup
poit of piisoneis, salaries of olllceis
other thtfn the jailor, and incidentals.
The supplies he understood wo'io
furnished tinder contract, yet the
Pi ivy Council had to vote 20,000
for a deficiency.
Rep. Kaultikou moved tho item
pass as in the bill.
Rep. Kaunamano moved to amend
tho motion of Rep. Brown, so that
the item may bo lef erred to a select
committee, one of whom should be
the Minister of Interior. The
prisoners were hired out to private
persons, but he saw nothing in the
Report about the proceeds of their
labor. As it stood, the item might
cover the keep of horses, pigs and
fowls of the jail ofllciuls, which was
Minister Gibson favored the pro
posed inference, and said the com
mittee would report without delay.
There was 860,000 from prison
labor as a Government realization,
which left a balance of $30,000 to
be provided for.
Rep. Brown accepted the amend
ment, which ctinied.
Rep. Kalua moved to insert
Road Damages to

Lands Committee adopted by the
Rep. Keau moved to amend to
$1,000, and went into argument at
Rep. Dole raised the point of or
der that tho leport recommending
500 having been adopted, a differ
ent amount could not bo named now
w ithout j consideration,
The chairman sustained tho point,
and the item passed at $500.
Rep. Katilukou said the Privy
Council voted $6,000 toward the
funeral expenses of Queen Emma,
and inotcd to insert
I'uuuinl Expenses of Queen
Before tho vote was put he called
on Minister Gibson for definite in
formation. Minister Gibson intended to have
culled tho attcution of the Assembly
to this matter. As Noble "Walker
was chairman of tho Privy Council
committee that disbursed the amount,
lio rcfcircd tho house to that gentle
man. Rep-. Dole wanted to know uiulor
what division tho Privy Council
voted this money pestilence, inva
sion, or war? Ho supposed it must
have- been public disaster. Tho
Privy Council had no moie light to
vote money for stfbh a puiposo as
this, than any private corporation.
Rep. Castle wanted to know how
many votes of mono' the Pi ivy
Council had made altogether. He
took it that this Legislatuic had es
tablished tho precedent that Hawaii
should bury its chiefs. In that case
ho supposed the house should pass
this item, but ho would move to
refer it to a committee to ascertain
the amount expended.
Rep. Aholo agreed with the lion,
member for Wniluku. Ho was in
formed that $7,608.05 had been ex
pended. Rep. Hnyselden favored reference
to a committee, which should be
the Finance Committee.. He was
on the committee with Hon. Mr.
Walker in disbursing the money.
Noble Walker said something
over $14,000 was appropriated by
advice of the Pi ivy Council. The
amount for Queen Emma's funeral
expenses was $5,965.78, for which
vouchers were in the treasury, ap
proved by Mr. Hayselden and him
self. They were not approved by
him as Auditor-General, beca'usc he
had no authority for approving bills
outside of the Appropriation Act.
He was grateful to the member for
Wniluku for his lemarks about pay
ments liom the tieasury by author
ity of the Privy Council. There
should bo some definite undei stand
ing on this matter, upon which lie
was not very clear himself. Tho
next item he H3 sure the house
would approve, being $2,000 to the
Inter-Island Steam Navigation Co.
for searching for the lost sdhoonor
Ka Moi. Next was. $7,011.83 or
dered Uy joint resolution last ses
sion to refund the Queen's Hospital,
which was neglected to bo insetted
in the Appropriation Bill.
Rep. Richardson moved all the
items mentioned by the lion. Noble
bo referred to same committee.
Rep. Castle beliex ed, after heai ing
the explanations, that the house was
wasting its time, as those items all
belonged to the Indemnity Bill.
The various motions on the matter
weie thereupon withdrawn.
Rep. Aholo moved to insert an
item of $7,608.95 for the funeral
expenses of Queen Emma, which
was the amount incurred br the
trustees of the estate. He referred
to the established precedent, $11,000
having been spent by the Govein
ment'to bury Kamehameha V., and
a like amount to bury Lunalilo, and
spoke of the great love for Queen
Emma in the hearts of the whole
Rep. Brown said the proposed
item, with what had been spent by
authority of the Privy Council,
would make an aggregate of some
$13,000. He moved the item be
referred to the Finance Committee.
Rep. Hayselden seconded the mo
tion to insert tfie item. The Legis
latuic had granted a peunanent
settlement of $16,000 on the late
Queen Dowager, of which she had
drawn $8,650. Had sho lived the
balance of $7,314 would have been
paid without a complaint being
heard. That balance was within
about $250 of the amount incurred
by her agents.
Noble Walker was delighted with
the liberality of the house this after
noon. They were ready to vote this
money, and for what? To hand it
over to the trustees of the estate to
invest for some other object. Had
this Governmont money to use in
that way? If they had a laige sum
in tho treasury that .they did not
know how to spend, this might be
the place for it. The sentimental
argument was all right, but the
financial argument was all wrong,
Rep. Dole said it s'ecmed to him
that the patriotic duty of the nation
had been well fulfilled when the
Government spent the $6,000 on the
late Queen's burial. The affairs of
the estate were all settled, and
needed no relief from the Legisla
ture. Sentiment did not enter into
the question at nil, aud was out of
plaoe in dealing with tho people's
money. The late Queen would not
bo benefited a cent's woi th by tho
passage of this item. Mr. Cart
wright and some others would be the
only ones to profit by it. If tho
money would secure Her late Majesty
a passpoit to heaven Micro would be
a proper object in appiopiiating it.
The 08tato was prospering, a piece
of land on Kauai originally woith
$20,000 having been sold the other
day for $45,000.
Noble Kapena opposed the pas
sage of tho item in Hawaiian, and
was followed on tho other sido by
Rep. Dole asked Rep. Aliolo why
this nation was so ungrateful as not
to assume the funeral expenses of
their royal highness, Princeses Ruth
and Beinico Pauahi Bishop,
Rep. Aholo replied that neither 6f
those named had ever occupied the
Rep. Dickey said Queen Emma
neyer intended that her funeral ex
penses wcro to bo a matter for tho
Legislature to squabble over. On the
contrary sho took special pains to
avert such a proceeding. Ho took
tho trouble during tho discussion to
go up to tho Supreme Court and
read her will, which said, "I do
direct, and it is my express wish
that my just debts and funeral ex
penses slmll bo settled as soon as
possible- after my decease. " Thoy
shouldicspcct her wish. Whatever"
thoy did there her name would re
main forever in tho hcaits of tho
people. By passing this item they
would benefit tho doviseos of the
will and not Queen Emma.
Rep. Kaulukoti spoko at length
in Hawaiian in favor of tho passage
of the item, followed in the same
language by Rep. Paehaole against
Noble Mm tin said vouchers were
offeied for the Government expendi
ture, but not for the amount spent
by the tiustees. He favored the
reference of the item to n commit
tee. Rep. Richardson seconded tho
motion, and Rep. Aliolo said ho had
Tho motion to refer carried. .
Mahitcnauco of Insane Asylum.. 25,000
Minister Gibson moved $20,000,
saying ho should move aftorward,
$5,000 for repairs.
Passed at $20,000.
Minister Gibson, referring to the
recommendation of the committee
Rcpalw to Insane Asylum 85,000
Rep. Kaunamano opposed the
item, considering the item just passed
would alfoid enough for repairs.
Rep. Castle was delighted with
tho small economy of some lion,
members this afternoon. The Asylum
Bhould have been under the Board
of Health instead of the Interior
Department, and there was no reason
why more parsimony should be
exercised with legard to that insti
tution than to the operations of the
Board of Health.
Minister Gibson said the S20,000
would have to be very caicfully
managed in order to make it suffice.
Theic was double the number of
inmates that theic was two years
ago. Four additional attendants
besides a female nnise had to be
engaged. An improved water supply
was required, and $5,000 could very
well be spent.
Rep. Kaunamano said he had no
particular objection to. tho itcin.
Noble Walker thought the pro
posed amount would' not be enough
for the lcqiiiiemciits. Some of. the
rooms of the institution needed to
be enlarged. He could see no rea
son why the house should desire to
icduce Ibis appropriation, when it
was so liberal in other mattcis.
Passed at $5,000.

this belonged to the Finance Depart
ment, the item was passed over,
also an item subsequently propos'ed.
by the same member for an item of
$5,200 for a steamer to Lanai, etc.

Minister Gibson said this used to
be done in the Attorney-General'B
Depaitment us pait of the police
seivice. He undeistood a contract
had' been acquiesced in, and pro
sumed this would bo tho amount due
for the period.
Rep. Brown approved of the trans
ference of tho service to the Interior
Depaitment. Under the law ho
thought it came under the supervi
sion of tho Minister of Interior
alone, who -made the contracts. Ho'
moved the item pass. Carried.
