The cily of Providence, 11.. 1.,
celebrated its 'JflOlU anniversary on
tho 21th of June with a grand mili
tary and civic parade, nntl other
demonstrations. Next day, Ihe
livening liullclln of that city,
came out in a 20 page edition, giv
ing a complete history, with cuts of
the city and Hi principal buildings.
In introducing the dcpuitmcut of

the time of the founding of the city,
" only six newspapers had ever been
published in the world, and only
one of them in the English lan
WHAT IS NOT A PARTY MEASURE ?
The Advertiser is of opinion that
tho tax bill "could hardly be recog
nized as a party measure." The
intelligent public have had an en
tirely diffcicnt opinion all along, and
the statement of our morning con
temporary affords no ground for a
change of the public belief. The
original bill was introduced by a
member of the Government party,
who may reasonably be supposed to
be in the Government contldeucu to
an extent that no other member of
the house is, and in the modified
form in which it ultimately came up
for consideration it was reported by
the Government majority of the
committee to which all tax hills
were referred ; the Government have
been a unit in support of the bill
from the time of its introduction,
and have fought most vigorously for
its passage; the mouth-piece of the
Government out of the house advo
cated the measure with a vehemence
that has been considered insulting
by respectable people. Moreover,
the Government and their spokesmen
made a vigorous effort to rush the
bill through its various stages, and
make it the law of the land by the
commencement of the present month,
that its provisions might operate in
the taxation of the current year;
and the organ was on hand to stig
matize all who opposed it in the
house as " obstructionists," and
those who were averse io. it out of-
the house-as -"tax'-shakers." Now
hat the bill is practically defeated,
and the Government placed in a
position where in Gieat Uritain re
signation or dissolution would follow,
the public are coolly informed that
"it is proper to say that so lar as
the Tax bill is concerned it could
hardly be lecoguised as a party
measure!" It is astonishing how a
whole community may be mislead
by reaching rational conclusions
from external appearances1 As
everything combined to designate
the Tax bill as a Government meas
ure, everybody considered and talked
of it as such ; and yet everybody
was mistaken 1 The Advertiser says
it could hardly be lccomiiscil as a
party measure, and who will
contradict the Advertiser?

To the Hon. Jons S. AVai.ki'.i:,.
Piesident of the Legislative Assem
bly, Si it: The select committee to
which was refcri cd several petitions
pray in that the Act of 1G8-1, urcal-
William Jeffrey Patterson, Secre
tary of the Montreal (Canada)
Corn Exchange, died in that city on
the 12th of June. The deceased was
a native of Glasgow, Scotland, and
at bis deatli was aged 70 years and
8 months. His was an eventful
career. When a 3'oung man he was
an anti-slavery editor in the West
ern States. A pro-slavery mob
sacked his office, throwing ail the
plant into a river. Not having the
local newspaper obituary before us,
we are unable to give date and
place of this event. Mr. Patterson
was commercial editor of the Mont
real Witness for several years, in
which position he displayed the apti
tude for commercial statistics, which
marked him out as the most suitable
candidate for a vacancy in tho
Secretaryship of the above organiza
tion. When the writer of theso lines
was leaving Montreal two years
ago, Mr. Patterson disclosed to him
an enruest desire for piomoting
closer trade relations between this
kingdom and the Dominion of
Canada, requesting that Hawaiian
trade statistics be furnished him
regularly. This request has been
complied with, and thcie is no
doubt Mr. Patterson mado good use
of the information supplied. A
memorial card received by Jast mail
reminds us of the duty of making
this mention of the deatli of a friend
of Hawaii, so eminent in tho com
mercial circles of a neighboring
country. We hope some fruit of his
ing Road SupervisoiS-in-Chief for the
Islands, be repealed, alto an act
introduced by the Hon. Mr. Kauna
mano, to repeal s.Jd law ; an aet in
troduced by the Hon. Mr. Pallia to
regulate the working and making of
roads, and an act introduced by the
Hon. Mr. Kaiiliane to provide for
the appoiutinent of road commis
sioners, etc., respectively report as
follows, viz : that they have con
sidered the several matters referred
to them and find that the operation
of the law of 1SS1, which it was ex
pected would be more effective and
less expensive than the o'd Bystcm
of somewhat irresponsible district
road supervisors, has, on the con
trary, been of very little use so far
as the working and improvement of
roads arc concerned. It has not
been more economical either, in the
opinion of the committee.
On the Island of Oahu considera
ble road work lias been done, and,
on the "whole, the roads out of the
district of Honolulu are in better
condition than for many years past.
But if this is the case here, abso
lutely nothing lias been done on tho
other islands. Road taxes have been
deposited in the general treasury and
have not been expended on the roads
in the outer districts and more remote
portions Of the Islands. This is wholly
wrong and totally contrary to the
intent 'of the law of road tax. This
burden is not imposed on the people
of Kan, of Puna, of liana, of Molo-
kai, of Waimen, or any other part of
the country distant from Honolulu
or Oahu, cither that it should bo
used for the streets in Honolulu or
the roads on Oahu, or to lie expend
ed in the payment of salaries, pur
chase of arms and accoutrements, or
to bo used in any foreign country on
foreign missions' of doubtful value;
and the expenditure by tho Cabinet
of tho road 11101103' for any object
other than the roads in each district
is clearly in dellanco of the object
and intent of any law imposing road
Tho neatly universal outcry from
the whole country against the law
which permitlted such a violation of
law, but voiced tho outraged sense
of the people who have been de
frauded of their rights. Tho prayer
of the various petitions is answered
by the bills repealing that act ; but
to repeal the old law docs not placo
matters just as they should be, and
Mr. Kauhane's bill very nearly
meets tho requirements. The com
mittee And, however, thntsaid bill is
not complete and full enough
to meet all of the necessities of the
case, and they have prepared and
herewith submit a bill which covers
the points embraced in Mr. Knu
hane's, but is moie explicit. It pro
vides' for n Board of Road Commis
sioners in each taxation district, 0110
of whom shall be Hoard Supervisor;
for their duties in consulting and
advisiii1' on road woik : for tho 10
ponsibllities and duties of the Super
visor ; that nil road moneys shall bo
used in the several districts, and
that any surplus funds shall be kept
as a contingent fund.
The committee therefore recom
mend that the petitions and bills
referred to them be laid upon the
table, and herewith submit a bill
covering the matters referred to
them, which they recommend the
Assembly to pass.

'W. R. Castix,
J. A. Kaukau.
I agree with the general recom
mendations of the report, but must
dissent from certain strictures on
Wat.tkk M. Gibson.
On motion of Rep. Palohau the
report was adopted, and, 011 motion
of Rep. Drown, the bill was read a

the Printing Committee to be
Rep. Kaulukou, on suspension of
the rules, lead a first time an act to

R. Austin. The hill was also read
a second time by tittle and referred
to the Committee on Public Lands.
Rep. Kaunamano moved that the
Printing Committee report up the
bills relating to the Hawaiian hoard
of Health. Carried.
Rep. Richardson read a first time
an act to amend sections 211, 218,
219 and 221, Civil Code, relating to
prisons and houses of correction.
Rep. Kauhane moved that the
Secretary bo instructed to return
petitions of Awa and Ahi, for com

OllUr.K OF THE DAY.
On motion of Rep. Kaai, the house
proceeded to the order of the day,
resolving into committee of the
whole on the Appropriation Bill,
Rep. Kcau in the chair.
The item of 30,000 for Foreign
Missions, pending when the com
mittee rose, was the Hist to conic up.
Minister. 43rcj:it0i) trusted the
hdiibc would not 1 erase to vote tho
amount of $30,000 for Foreign
Missions. He had taken some pains
to enquire into the matter, and un
less the house desired to leverse the
whole foreign policy of the Govern
ment it would grant this money.
His predecessor had recommended
in his leport that commissioners be
sent to Samoa and other parts of
Polynesia, and an envoy to reside in
Europe, also a reinesentativt' to
Mexico and Central America, the
latter, however, having been drop
ped for the present. But it had
been deemed advisable to withdraw
from that position, and his predeces
sor therefore recommended a 1 educ
tion to 30,000. Included 111 that
sum were the expenses of interna
tional expositions. The New Orleans
and Louisvillo expositions had cost
8,000, and he thought it would be
advisable to have this country re
presented at the Jubilee Exposition
in London next year, which would
cost $10,000. Reference had been
made to the expenditures in 1880
1882, which were said to have been
only $0,000, but the expenditure in
that period, which was before his
predecessor took oflico, was about
$12,000, as he had ascertained from
the stubs in the Foreign
office. Therefore the appropria
tion did not always represent
the actual expenditure. If
the money was not absolutely re
quired he could assure tho Assem
bly that it would not be spent. It
would be unfortunate to cripple the
Foreign olllcc, for great exigencies
might arise. The great powers ex
pected more than mere sentiment
from this country. The Govern
ment should bo one of fast
as well as of sentiment.
lie considered tho amount asked
would barely meet necessary expen
ditures. Rep. Dole remarked that this was
50 percent more than was asked
last period. He complained of the
general terms, tho vague generali
ties, in which the votu was asked.
The Minister had not given them
and facts on which to weigh satis
factorily the necessities of tho case.
He argued at length against spend
ing such a large amount on mere
sentiment, show and nonsense,
which did not do this country a
particle of good. Reference was
made lo tho beneficient work of reli
gious missionaries in the neighbor
ing groups, and the speaker con
tended that the advent of political
missionaries there from this king
dom would destroy the wholesome
influence already exercised by Ha
waii, through the agencies referred
to, among those Islands,
