Minister Ktuiou, on suspension of
the titles, leplyinjr to Rep. Dole's
question of this morning, stated that
no loan has been negotiated since
the Government's indebtedness had
The house went into eointuittco of

Minister Gibson stated there vrns
not liuieh call for this appropriation
on behalf of Hawaiian sailors, for
whom it was originally designed.
Yet there were a ilawniiau woman
debet ted by her Chinese husband nt
Hongkong, a Hawaiian child in
Illinois, and a sailor at Port Towns
end, for whom assistance to return
was asked, and the Minister should
have a fund for cases where help
was proper. He moved 1,000,
Xatlonal Museum 85,000
Minister Gibson moved $.1,000,
Kep. Dole $2,000, and it passed at
Xatioual Lilnury $5,000
Minister Gibson moved S3, 000.
Rep. Dole moved 81,000. He
considered it was extravagant to
ote any more for books that only
half-a-dozen white people in Hono
lulu would read.
Minister Gibson would not con
tend very earnestly against the lion,
member. There weie books on
sanitary engineering, road-making,
and voyaging in the Pacific, which
the Government library should have,
and it did have a fair stock of such
works. ItwasaUo important that
the library should be furnished with
works upon Uic inhabitants of the
Pacific Islands. There should be
works on the natural history of these
islands, and tho speaker referred to
the labors of the late Dr. Ilillo
biand, which were likely to result
in a valuable book. lie admitted
that it would be inadvisable to pro
vide books simply for the benefit of
any bookworm that might haunt the
libiary. His colleague the Minister
of Foreign Affairs was a literary
gentleman, who, he was satisfied,
would make a judicious selection.
Four or live hundred dollars was
owing for books already ordered, so
that a vote of 1,000 would leave a
very small balance for new books.
Noble Bishop referred to the votes
for this purpose in the past, and
said there seemed to have been no
systematic plan adopted. It was
folly to buy such wc-iks as "Paia
dise Lost,'5 full of pictures, to be
tumbled over by idle hands in that
libtaty. But voyages and travels
in the Pacific, and local natural
history, were proper to be obtained.
He was happy to say that Dr. Hille
brand's Flora of these islands was
in course of publication, but it
would only take a few dollars to buy
half-a-dozen copies. A thousand
dollars would be enough, and a cer
tain amount should be voted every
Passed at 83,000.
King's Ouaul 878,000
Rep. Dickey moved to reduce to
833,000. The question was whether
they should spend nearly $150,000
for mere show, when it might be
spent to better purpose. What did
they need an army for? Did they
want to make wars of conquest on
Polynesia or England? Perhaps
they could lick France, for she was
beaten not long ago! Or should
they light Tahiti? He thought they
were narrowed down to a contest
with Micronesia, as there was small
piospect of success in any other
qtmitcr. In reply to Rep, Kaulu
kou, who asked whether tho United
States kept a standing army for
conquest or for preserving internal
oi der, he said the United States was
a bigger country than Hawaii. They
did not want an army for foreign
conquest. As to internal security,
if the Attorney-General's hands
weie not tied, lie could so manage
tho police force of this kingdom as
to make it effectual protection
against disorder. Did thoy waut a
standing army for protection from
foreign aggression? A man-of-war
such as visited Honolulu a few
weeks ago would reduce the city
and palace to kindling wood in a
few minutes, and to acquire such a
vessel would bankrupt this Govern
ment. It wns for show they had
it standing army; but thoy might
carry it too far, and become tho
laughing stock of tho nations. The
best protection to tho throne was
love for His Majesty in tho hearts
of his subjects. Tho speaker ie
viewed the military expenditure of
tho kingdom for many periods,
showing that back in tho fifties
Bcaiccly anything was Bpent, sinco
which it lluctuated from $8,000 all
tho way up to the SI 48,000 aggre
gated by the four items in the pres
ent bill. In 1882 the King's Guards
had only $38,000, ami ho did not
bee why thoy should not get along
with the same amount wy. That
$148,000 would build hospitals nil
over tho islands, where lepers could
bo segregated without being con
signed to a living tomb. They were
asked for $118,000 for tho army,
and only $100,000 for the leper
settlement. Thoy were asked for
this amount for the army, anil only
$100,000 for the schools! Half the
army appropriation applied to tho
schools would givc.thetn the finest
educational system in the woild.
Minister Gibson was sorry discus
sion had nrisen nt this stage. There
was a bill pending for the organiza
tion of thentiuy and navy, and he
moved the consideration of those
items, with the exception of that for
Guards to Government Buildings
and Jail, be deferred until that bill
was disposed of. Ho would make
some lemarks in reply to tho last
speaker. His utterances weie in
the line of the usual tiindcs indulg
ed in by persons coming to this
country and taking a superficial
view of affairs here. That line of
argument belonged to the stteets
and was inappropriate in this house.
This country was not laughed at by
strangers. It was people living
here who ridiculed what they termed
tho "army," and strangets could
hardly set foot on the shore without
being ticated to that kind of talk.
Comparison liad been instituted be
tween the great United States and
little Hawaii, but he ventured to
say that the great country named
expended not less than $100,000,000
on her army and navy. She did not
spend money on hospitals, which
were established and maintained by
the humane benevolence of her peo
ple. She spent practically nothing
on schools io what she spent for
military purposes. The same was
true respecting England nud all the
Rep. Dole seconded the motion to
defer, saying he would, unlike the
Minister, reserve his ammunition for
the discussion on the bill in ques
tion. Rep. Kalua moved in amendment
that the four items be deletre'd. "
Rep. Richardson raised the point,
which was sustained, thafthe items
must bo taken separately.
The item was deferred.
Guai ds to Government Buildings
and Jail 10,000
Rep. Dole raised the point that
the items, being lccoinmcnded struck
out in the levteed estimates, was not
befoic the house.
Tim chair ruled that only the
Appropriation Bill was before the
house, and it required a motion to
bring forward a recommendation to
alter the bill.
"'Rep. Brown moved the item be
deferred until the appropriations for
the Interior Dcpaitmcnt weie again
before the house. "When the item
came before the select committee on
police, the Minister of Interior in
formed him that the recommended
withdrawal was a mistake, as it was
only iutended to have it transferred
to the Interior Department.
The motion to defer carried.

leave to sit again, which carried and
the house adopted the repo.-t.
Rep. Keau, at 3:20, moved the
house adjourn till 10 o'clock to
morrow, which carried over an
amendment of Rep. Nahale to
adjourn till 9 o'clock.

CHINESE AND BRITISH CUSTOMS.
It really is amusing to note in
how many things Chinese customs
are diametrically the reverse of ours.
We shake hands with our friends :
they shake their own hands, or ra
ther wag their own clenched fists !
English women cover their heads
when they go out; Chinese women
consider this very bad style in
fact, most objectionable, so oven
when they do wear head dresses
they arc open on tho crown. Eng
lish gentlemen remove their hats in
presence of honored guests. Chinese
gentlemen deem it courteous to
keep the head covered.
An' Englishman of tho present
day likes to keep his cropped a
Chinaman lengthens his long plaits
aitiiieially, that it may touch his
heels. A young Briton icjoiccs in
tho early stages of his beard and
moustaches, but a Celestial knows
that not till he is gtey headed may
he indulge in tho growth of such de
corations. But when an English
man dose shave, he generally (at
least in England) is his own barber;
whereas no Chinaman, howovor
poor, would dream of shaving him
self. Ho would consider that he
was thereby demeaning himself.
(Of all tho contraries, what can be
stranger than to seo a vtholoraco
taking tho grcntpst pride in the said
long plait and shaven forehead,
which are simply badges of subjec
tion imposed on the nation only two
hundred years ago by the ainnchu
ifimmfif)ffi ntnnfc Kin-iYsagM3i
Furthermore, a young dnndy of
Europe considers his walking stick
an essential in China the use of
such luxury is only permitted to
aged and infirm persons. Wo read
our books from loft to right
Chinese from right to left Wo
write their names on the bade, nnd
arrange our book-shelves according
ly they write the names on tho cmU,
and Iny them so that the ends shall
be visible. In riding we hold tho
bridle in the left hand a Chinaman
holds it in the right. Wo have our
address printed on the face of a neat
small visiting card. If a Chinese
visitor deems it necessary to notu
his uddicss, it is inscribed on the
back of the very large piece of crim-.
son paper which does duty as a caul.
Our doctors ate content with feeling
the pulse in one wrist a Chinaman
feels both as :i pieliminury to fcel
ing many moie, for he recognizes
four hundred and ono distinct
pulses! Wo deem the right hand
side to be the position of highest
honor the Chinaman places his
most honored guest on the left.
With us advancing years aie very
commonly ignored (especially by
ladies), but the Chinese of both
sexes glory in their age, which is
the surest passpoit to honor, and
the height of courtesy is to assure
your guest that from his or her ap
pearance you would have supposed
him or her to be much older than the
age stated, and this again implies
a curious diversity in custom, for
whereas we should scaicely deem it
courteous to ask a stranger how old
he or she is, it is almost tho first
question asked by a polished China
man anxious to show honor to his
Then, too, in the matter of mourn
ing, white takes the place of our
sombre black, and though chief
monrncrs wear sackcloths, all other
relations of the dead wear white
garments, and foi m a long proces
sion walking two and two; the
collin is ornamented with bands and
rosettes of white calico, the chief
mourner carries a staff entwined
with stripes of white cotton, and
white streamers are attached to the
sign-board of the house of the dead.
Hence to the uninitiated Chinaman a
white flag of truce would suggest a
symbol of death, while to cover a
dining table with a fair white linen
tablecloth would convey to him pre
cisely the same sensation that we
should experience were a covering
of black ciape selected to giace a
wedding feast! Miss Gordon
