TI10 house resumed nt 1 siO.
Rep. Thurston called attention to
tho fact that the resolution regard
ing the sale of lease of land was
pending nt recess.
Minister Gibson said that was a
sale of a lease of Government land
advertised by his predecessor Mr.
Gulick. After reciting the course
taken in regard to this land, as ho
had done in reply to a previous res
olution, he said he had the opinion
of Mr. Curtis J. Lyons, of the Sur
vey Department, that 50 acres of
this property was good cane laad,
the rest forest not suitable for settle
ment. His predecessor had consi
dered that under the circumstances
it was for the best interests of the
Government to have the lease offered
for sale as a good price would pro
bably be obtained. There would be
competition, and, as in Kauai the
other day, where land worth $20,
000 went for 845,000, the Govern
ment might get double value. Still,
it was not right that the Govern
ment should be actuated alone by n
question of revenue, and he had
made some remonstrance with the
late Minister, who informed him
that for all cultivable land on it, it
was not worth while cutting up into
small lots. He hoped the sale
would go on and that the resolution
would not pass.
Rep. Thurston held that the
homestead law was not made for
those who could invest thousands in
large lots, but for people who had a
few hundred dollars to invest in
small farm lots. It was not to be
concluded that the portion of this
property covered with forest was
not cultivable, for the coffee tree
grew better in the shelter of other
trees and ripened properly only in
that situation. By dividing this
land into smalljparcels for settlement
it would eventually bring in more
rcvepue than bv selling it now in a
block. TbAT'Rilltng or- VnVi .resolution
JxwrtiVshow that the Government
preferred to benefit large plantations
by giving them long leases than to
carry out the provisions of the home
stead law. He called for the ayes

Rep. Richardson gave notice of
an act to tax each district separ
ately. Rep. Kalua presented a resolu
tion that an item of $7,433.13, for
repairs to the royal palace, due
George Lucas, be inserted in the
Appropriation Bill. The money was
owing since 1882, and $1,700 inter
est accumulated on the original
Rep. Kaulukou moved to refer it
to the Finance Committee. Carried.
Minister Kanoa gave notice of an
act to provide for the payment of
salaries and other expenses till the
passage of the Appropriation Bill.
Minister Gibson explained that
tho act passed and approved to
make similar provision till the 31st
of August had been bungled so that
the Registrar would not pay out
money under it. He moved a sus
pension of the rules to have the bill
read a first time, which carried.
Rep. Hayselden moved second
reading by title, which carried, and
the bill passed to engrossment and
was ordered for third reading to
morrow. Minister Gibson gave notice-of an
act to relieve certain articles from
OltDKR OF THE DAY.
On motion of Minister Gibson the
house went into committee of the
whole on the Appropriation Bill,
Noble Cleghorn in the chair. Peti
tions for appropriations recom
mended favoiably by standing com
mittees were submitted.
Rep. Castle moved that all the
items for refunding overpaid taxes
be read and one item be inserted to
cover the whole.
Rep. Brown moved in amendment
that a separate item be inserted for
Rep. Hayselden seconded the
amendment, saying it was the simpler

Salary of Envoy at Washington. $12,000
Rep. Dickey moved $10,000, as
tho envov nt Wnshlncrton should
join them nt home in retrenchment.
Rep. Thurston Biinnortcd tho
amendment. If the object was to
make a great spread, $C,000 was not
enough, but if it was for the am
bassador to livo respectably $5,000
was sufficient. Mr. Carter had
moans of his own to make extra dis
play if he desired. He ought not
to have more than a Minister at
home with the work of a Depart
ment on him.
Passed as in bill.
Expenses of Legation at Wash
Rep. Brown moved $2,500. From
tho report of the Minister of Foreign
Affairs that a portion of this item
was spent in paying n salarj' to Hon.
Dr. J. Mott Smith. Hon. Henry
Carter was competent to attend to
this country's business at Washing
ton. The Government should not
pay the expenses of holiflay so
journs abroad of anybody.
Minister Gibson said it was true a
portion of last period's incidentals
was not exactly applied, yet Dr.
Smith had rendered very valuable
services. Probably his salary would
not continue, but the envoy desired
to have a secretary to the Legation,
and he would move tho item read,
"Secretary and incidentals, tc."
Ho thought Mr. Carter was going to
appoint a relative to the position.
Rep. Brown did not agree with
the Minister of Interior, in approv
ing of the appointment of a hecrc
tary. The Minister at Washington
had not much work, except during
the session of Congiess. He had
the best salary pnid any official
except the Chiof Justice, and if he
wanted a secretary he could pay
him out of his own pocket.
Minister Gibson said it was not
only on account of the amount of
work, but the dignified position the
envoy held, His M.ijcbty having
commissioned him as Envoy Extra
ordinary and Minister Plenipoten
tiary. He submitted that it was a
little derogatory to the position of a
diplomatist of that rank to have to
hire a petty messenger, to carry com
munications to his peers and mem
bers of the American Government.
Rep. Thurston considered tho
SfcY.'J.njent on which this appropria
tion was based, nb altogether too
fine for this house to grasp. Tho
Hawaiian ambassador o.d cot along
well enough the last four iftors
without a secretary to convey his
messages, and it would not hurt his
dignity or that of this country if he
carried his messages himself. It
would be better to build necessary
roads, bridges, wharves and school
houses, than to expend money on
such high-toned sentiments.
Rep. Wight did not like this
blowing hot and cold with the same
mouth. One day it was economise,
economise, economise, aud the next
it was puff out and expand. With
not enough revenue for necessary
expenses, it was not right to make
large expenditures for the sake of a
grand name abroad. If they had to
pay extra for the "Extraordinary"
and the "Minister Plenipotentiary,"
r they had better let those great titles
go and keep the money for much
needed services at home.
Rep. Dickey said it was so hard
to find use for the former appropria
tions the Gqvernment hndto employ
additional officials to spend it on.
Noble Bishop thought the mem
bers were disposed to -depreciate
the value of the Washington Min
ister's services, and tho great ex
pense of maintaining the position he
held. He believed it cost him a
good deal more than he received
from tho Government to live in
AVashington. His social position in
Washington was of more; importance
to the interests of this country than
Bome people might suppose. From
Dr. Smith, whose agent he' was, he
learned of the great expense atten
dant upon keeping a moderate posi
tion in Washington society. There
was no official in the pay of this
Government abroad more important
than this one.
Minister Creighton trusted this
vote would not be cut down. The
fees of counsel before committees,
in behalf of the treaty, would have
to come out of this and bo at least a
thousand dollars a year. There
were many other expenses charge
able to tills item. Mr. F. II. Allen
was Secretary for years at $3, GOO a
year, but since he retired the place
had not been filled.
The item passed as in the bill.
Expenses of Foreign Missions.. 800,000
Minister Gibson moved $30,000,
as in revised estimates.
Rep. Brown moved tho jtctn be
struck out, Last period it was $20,
000, of which $19,000 and odd was
spent. The only particle of good
obtained was a few hundreds of
Japanese laborers brought into the
country. Members might rest as
sured that if this item was passed
the money would be spent, even if
the outer districts did not get a
cent for necessary local improve
ments. There was no need of this
expenditure. No mom troaties wero
wanted. Let them keep the money
hero where it would do some good.
If any person was going abroad,
who thought he could do any good
to the country, let him pay his ex
Rep. Thurston gave a statement
of the expenditure for foreign mis
sions since 1800, when it was
8I,G00. Itvfas from 03,000 up to
0,OQ0 up to 1872, when it was only
$1,500; then $0,000 up to 1882,
when it was mndo $25,000. In 1884
the amount voted was $20,000, and
this year the Ministers put $50,000
in the bill. Now the Minister called
it economy 1o bring it down to $30,
000, to spend on mere show without
the slightest benefit. This when it
had only been by special loans that
the Government had been kept
agoing. The late Minister of for
eign Affairs said that the difference
between himself and tho speaker
was thnt ho wanted to spend money
nt home, while tho Minister wanted
to spend it abroad, in missions to
Samoa and tho like. Ho was willing
to take issue with the Minister on
that point, and say he did not bc
liovo in spending money abroad, but
in spending it at home.
Rep. Dickey would be in favor of
striking out tho item if it would not
complicate matters, but a debt had
already been incurred under that
head. He moved it be reduced to
$G,000, the same as in 1880.
Minister Gibson always listened
with satisfaction to the member for
Molokai because he was an earnest
man. The member for Koolnulon
asked what good were the Japanese,
as if that was a trilling affair. It
was true the Jnpauesc were not
angels: they had given some trou
ble j but they were proving fair
laborers and in some quarters wcic
giving great satisfaction. The
Government had hopes of increasing
the nation, as His Majesty said on
coming to the throne. The best in
crease would be a natural one, the
result of observing tho laws of
health. And they had increased
from 50,000 a few years ago to a
little nation of 85,000. Part of that
had been brought about by the ex
penditure of foreign missions.
Should they belittle the distinguish
ed consideration which had been ex
tended to this country by great
states as something not woilli the
obtaining. Were they to stig
matize as useless the sending
of an envoy to Russia to repic
scut this kingdom at the corona
tion of the Czar? It was so picas
iug to the Emperor of Russia that
he commanded that one of his ships
of war go to Hawaii, with a decor
ation, the brilliants in which were
worth $18,000, for His Majesty.
Was that not worthy of consider
ation to the Hawaiian members, that
this distinguished honor should be
paid to their sovereign? He appre
ciated all that had been said about
attention to matters at home, but
wus it not worth making these ex
penditures abroad? The speaker
drew attention to the eminent posi
tion Hawaii held among the 300,000
people of tV.a Pacific Islands. There
was nothing like'thfcv: uromisini:
position in the Pacific. They owed
it to the opportunities presented to
them by the great states, with which
their chiefs in the past desired to
hold communication, and take their
advice. It was worthy of them
that those people in the Pacific
should have the benefit of Hawaii's
greater privileges. By the last mail
came a letter from the Secretary of
State of the United States that it
was right and pioper that they
should take action in this matter
and send a representative to Samoa,
and it was suggested, "Who could
better assist Samoa than the kingdom
Rep. Brown agreed with what the
Minister said, even to the sentiment,
if the country was in a proper con
dition for it. This Government
should be conducted in the same
way as any man should conduct his
own private business. If he was
running behind and kept on that
way the end was bankruptcy. The
Government had been spending
more than it wns receiving, and he
said stop it right there. They were
told by the Government that the ex
penditures exceeded the receipts,
and in the face of that they should
not put in this item. If they spent
this money that way they would not
have enough to pay off their debt or
to make internal improvements.
Noble Bishop : The lion, member
for Koolauloa spoke of the Japanese
as the only advantage that theyhad
received for the appropriation under
thiB head, The immigration of
Japanese had very little to do with
this appropriation. If the committee
would refer to page 19 of the
Finance Report they would see
what this money had been spent
for: Expenses of Colonel Iaukea
in his mission round the world,
$141 ; expenses connected with
tho Japanese Minister's visit to
Hilo $13; cost of books, papers and
printing certain documents con
nected with the mission to Japan,
$1,404.50. It showed that tho get
ting of Japanese here had very little
to do with this expenditure In his
opinion most of this moiioy got for
them no real advantage in any way
worth its cost. They would have
been just as well oil at home and
abroad if they had not spent it. An
envoy went to Mexico. Ho did not
know, but ho never heard of any
good coming from that, There was
u thousand dollars paid to a gentle
man who went to Washington. Ho
did not think ho did anything there
that would not have been dono by
the Minister who icsides there.
There were gentlemen scut to cer
tain expositions at large expense,
but ho did not think that any advan
tage had grown out of that. Some,
who wero in as good a position to
judgo as any of them, thought that
the expenses of going to New Or
leans and Louisville really did them
harm. It was in the hands of good
men; they could not send better
