A CURIOUS MINER.
AN ORIGINAL SUGGESTION" FOtt
UOAltD OF GKXEAl.OGY.
An adventurer on the Isthmus of
Panama, learning that the graves of
the aboriginal races contained treas
ures of golden images, took up the
business of gold mining among the
resting places of the dead. Un
earthing a skull from a grave that
yielded no auriferous treasure, he
took up the desiccated cranco, and
vented his feelings in the following
Is this a skull Aztccian?
Or is It pure Tolteclan?
Did It (the owner) level in Monto.u
. Was ho killed by bold Pizarro
Or by a poisoned arrow,
Shot by an aborigine In a drunken brawl :
Or Hernandez dc Coulova,
Or Cortez, the Spanish 1 over.
When he stole the ti ensures of the Incas
But why, In name of thunder,
Did he not secure more plunder
For the grave-digging sttauger hunting
I've dug up many a giae
And laboicd like a slaw,
And all I've got to show for It Is a little
I'll pull up stakes and quit.
For I do not like the "lt,
And hunt for licher dlggiu. In these
I have been sold.
The Hawaiian Board of Genealogy
hunting grounds yield the skulls,
but their "diggins" ate in the
Treasury, and consequently ate not
of the same uncertain value as the
Isthmian explorer's fields. His ser
vices ought to he enlisted by the
Board of Genealogy. Being no
mean poetaster, lie could supple
ment the Board's findings with suit
able additions of "sentiment," which
Minister Gibson informed the house
to be of really more value to the
country than the bones.
NOTES AND QUERIES.
The committee to whom has been
referred the matter of ascertaining
the claims of private parties to tho
water in Nuuanu Valley, have a big
undei taking in hand. Private parties,
begining at Palama and extending
far up into the valley, have just
claims to about four-sevenths of that
water, three-sevenths only belonging
to the Government.
Our morning' contemporary inti
mates the opinion that Mr. Kekoa
ought to "save further trouble by
resigning." "We arejglad to be in
"accord" with our contemporary.
Mr. Kekoa's case has passed up
from one court to another, until it
can go no higher. The misdemeanor
with which he w as charged has been
clearly proven against him, and he
pronounced " guilty. " Common
decency should have induced his
resignation at once. Tlieie can be
no two opinions in this matter.
The pioccedings in the House
Bulletin, made a few days ago, to
the effect that the Opposition were
ready to assist the Government in
measures that they.(tho Opposition)
-relieved to be for the good ol' the
country. One Opposition member
stated that he did not know whether
lie was a Government man, or whe
ther the Minister of Interior was
one of the Opposition, but he was
certainly with tho Government in
the intention not to get the country
deeper in debt by borrowing money.

Illustrated paper has a cartoon in
which President Cleveland is shown
standing in n large boat with " U. S.

The house resumed at 1 :25 and
resolved into committee of the whole,
with Noble Clcghorn in the chair,
for consideration of the Appropria
The first item was S18,000 for pay
of road supervisors, formerly de
ferred till the special committee
should rcpoits on road bills.
Hep. Brown stated that the com
mittee had reported, lecommending
a change of system.
Rep. Richardson moved the item
Rep. Thurston thought that was
going it blind. "What amount did
the committee recommend?
Rep. Brown said the committee
had recommended nothing. It was
impossible for them to have recom
mended u specified amount. He
favored having a sum voted separ
ately for each island. The road
supervisors were, according to the
bill, to be paid ten percent of the
Rep. Ilaysclden said that then
$18,000 would not be too much.
Noble Bishop asked if the super
visors were to be paid by the person
having charge of tho road taxes.
If so where was the need for an ap
Rep. Brow u said they w ere, and
if the bill passed there would be no
need for the appropriation.
Noble Bishop favored again defer
ring the item, and moved accoid-
The amendment was lost.
Hep. Brown interposed as the
item was about to be put, with the
objection that it was not according
to law. lie read the law on tho
subject, under which he claimed
separate amounts should be voted
for the different islands.
Minister Gibson saw nothing in
the law to prevent the money being
voted in a lump sum.
Rep. Brown could not see that the
Minister of Finance could expend
the money undei a single item.
The item passed.
Next was SG7,37C17, unexpended
road tax, to be expended in Districts
where collected, which was defened
till reported on by Finance Commit
tee. It was pointed out that the re
pot t having been received and
adopted, all that remained was for
the Secretary to insert the amounts
for each Distiict making up the
item, as recommended.
The next item of 8120,000, road
tax of 1880 and 18S7, to be ex
pended in the Districts where col
lected, previously deferred, was
Minister Gibson called attention
to another deferred item, $2,000 for
proportion of cost of bridge, Kapaa,
Kauai. Ho had a letter from Mr.
Spaulding, asking for 5,000,- in re
turn for which he would admit the
public to the bridge. This could
not be entertained, and he moved to
strike the item out, which carried.
Rep. Kauku moved to insert,
Bridge over Micam at llonoko-
lian, Maul $3,000
Rep. Kalua moved it be referred
to select committee on roads, which
Rep. Kalua, on behalf of Rep.
Kauhane, absent, moved to insert,
Roads in Ivan 1,000
Rep. Richardson moved to refer
to the same committee.
Rep. Aliolo baid it was already
before that committee.
Rep. Kalua moved to insert,
Water Pipes in Walohinu, Hawaii $500
Rep. Thurston was not aware
there were waterworks in Waiolijnu,
and thought this ought also to be
referred to a committee.
Noble Martin said the reservoir
was fed by the flume for carrying
cane, therefore the water was not
clean. The amount asked was for
laying pipes direct .from the reser
voir to the source of supply.
Rep, Knunamano thought be ob
ject was good, but once grant the
improvement to "Wniohinu, ami Hilo
and other places would demand
similar favors. He moved the item
be deferred, as this and similar
items were before a committee,
which wotild likely report to-morrow.
Rep. Kalua moved to insert,
M. Kealoha, for land, leconnncuded
by Finance Committee $C3
Rep. Dole thought, in all such cases
the reports of committees should bo
produced. He could not remember
that report, although he had no
doubt the lion, member for Lahainu
remembered it, but it was not safe
to. depend on individual meraor3'.
Rep. Kichardson moved the item
bcdeferrcd till the secretary found
the report, which carried.
Minister Gibson desiicd to call
attention to several now items for
the Interior Department. The first
Repahs and additions to Hono
lulu Water Woiks 835,000
This was not inserted in the bill at
first, for several reasons. The sum
of 8175,000 was voted last session,
but it was to come out of a loan and
not the ordinary revenue He was
not now in favor of borrowing any
money, except in the ordinary way
from Inoncycd incii in tho countryi
It vjus rot advisable to have very
cxHmsivc water works until tho city
had a population of one or two bun
dled thousand, which ho hoped to
see in his day. He had, on the
sticngth of the former action of tho
Legislature, begun work in laying
the pipes, which for several years
had been an eyesore to everybody.
This would very materially incrcaso
the water supply, but ho thought
theie should bo an additional reser
voir, that would cost about S 7,000.
A site was iu view on the Queen
Emma' estate, which would cost
$12,000. This new reservoir would
be nearer tho source of supply, en
suing a much purer quality than
that now furnished.
Rep. Castle was glad to find him
self in accord with Ministerial policy,
also to hear the Minister of Interior
say lie was not in favor of borrow
ing more money ; but ho would like
to know where the cost of improve
ments was como from without a
Minister Gibson said the esti
mated expenditure in the bill was
2,830,809.02, of which 207,900
was bonds. There had never been
an over-estimate of expenditure sub
mitted to this house. He estimated
the receipts for the current period
at three millions of dollars. Appli
cations for land were before the In
terior Department, from which a
considerable amount would be real
ized. Several applications were in
for the new land on the Esplanade,
one applicant offering 10,000 and
engaging to put up a building worth
810,000 on the lot. Altogether
there were 1G applications for small
lots of land, and he anticipated
about 120,000 from that source.
Then the Government had estab
lished a Postal Saving's Bank, the
deposits in which they did not pio
posc to let remain idle. Those were
legimale sources of revenue, con
stituting a loan from their own peo
ple to the Government.
Rep. Castle could not understand
how the Government could apply
land money to general purposes,
when the law distinctly set it apart
for the sinking fund.
Rep. Thurston did not know
whether he was a Government man
to-day or not, but certainly the Min
ister of Interior and himself were on
the same ground. One of the things
he should oppose with all his might
was a loan act for general purposes
of administration. Therefore lie
was pleased to hear fiom the Min
ister that he was not going to bring
forward the loan bill. One thing,
however, was not explained was
how the Government was going to
take the water without paying the
people having rights in it.
Minister Gibson was not aware
that there were private rights in the
Rep. Thurston begged pardon,
but he had an inteiest in water
lights in that quarter himself. Dur
ing the past two yeais there had
been plenty of water in the valley,
but, in former years, sometimes
there was scarcely any watqr pass
ing over Ivapena Falls, and then
there were many suits over water
privileges. He described the ground
as being covered with taro patches
nearly all the way to the sea, which
rcauired ample supplies of water
and whose owners all had held water
Bop. Castle did not think the
Government knew much about the
matter, most of its inembeis being
strangers. A suit was decided in
the Supreme Court the other day,
and the successful suitor "threat
ened to force a settlement some day
by stopping the water. That would
leave Honolulu in a pretty fix. The
difference between the amounts
given by the Minister, and 35,000,
would be insuflicient to pay for
Minister Gibson was not pre
pared to go into the question of the
extinction of water rights. Before
a new reservoir was built it would
bo necessary to settle any such
Hep. Castle moved tho committee
recommend a reference of claims to
Rep. Kaulukou moved the item
Hep. Palohau was in favor of
referring the matter to a committee.
The Government was in a ticklish
position with respect to tho water
works, as the 10,000 deficit of the
superintendent was not satisfac
torily explained. It made him un
comfortable to see that amount un
ncccounted for. Ho did not like to
see the stylo put on by that olllcial
after failing to account for that
The item passed.
Rep. Dole moved to recommend
that a select committee bo appointed
to consider claims for water rights,
but the motion was ruled out of
Rep. Thurston moved that 1 be
inserted for payment of water
claims, in order to make a motion
for reference regular.
Rep. Dickey moved the item bo
refencd to a select committee.
Rep. Kaunamauo moved the item
be 35,000 (later on amending to
Rep. Ilaysclden was in favor of
passing the item at 50,000, and not
of referring it to a committee of
lawyers, who would have the matter
settled in their own interests. In
the course of his remarks ho referred
to tho member for Molokai as "the
Hep. Thurston wished the member
for Honolulu and the house to un
derstand that ho was not tho Makiki
lawyer. Ho was not personally ac-
qualnted with a single claimant of
Makiki, nutl only knew one of them
by sight. He had only done wotk
in this house that should havobcen
done by the member for Honolulu.
That member's insinuations were
entirely uncalled for.
Rep. Castle considered that, after
that exhibition of the member for
Honolulu, it would be safer to refer
tho item to a committee of lawyers
than to a .committee of assessors.
He suggested the Committee of
Public Lands, the only lawyer on
which was Rep. Kalun.
Rep. Dickey accepted the sugges
tion, which the house then adopted.
Minister Gibson moved to insert,
New Wharves aud Rcpali s 840,000
The late Minister had recommended
8110,000, but the Government was
hardly prepared to undertake such
extensive works. Ilo exhibited
plans of improvements contemplated
iu Honolulu, including additional
accommodation for the inter-island
fleet. The amount asked would in
Rep. Dole called attention to
10,000 already voted for contin
gencies, and asked if that was out
side of the 840,000.
Minister Gibson said it was, and
the whole sum asked could very well
The item passed.
Rep. Castle asked if 250 could
not be afforded for protection to the
wharf at Maalaea Bay, which was
dangerous to the lives of passengers.
Minister Gibson promised that
the matter should receive his most
careful attention, lie then moved
New Custom House Waiehouse. $8,000
There was a lack of storage room
suitable for certain classes of goods,
requiring peculiar conditions of tem
perature, etc. He was assured by
business men that a proper store
house would yield a handsome
revenue to the Government in sto
rage charges for liquors and other
goods in bond, besides making the
port an entrepot for a largo trade.
The item passed.
Minister Gibson desired to pro
pose an item for road damages, but
ho was hardly prepared to name an
exact figure. He referred to dam
ages in the burnt district, and the
proposed widening of Merchant
street. He moved to insert,
Boad Damages and Improve
This was a nominal figuic, however,
and he mayed it be referred to a
committee, to report on Friday
Rep. Brown, in seconding the
motion, said he considered the
whole proceedings of the road com
missioners were illegal.
The motion passed.
Minister Gibson moved to insert,
Dredging Honolulu Haibor $40,000
This was the same as last period, of
which 39,000 was expended. Car;
Minister Gibson moved to insert,
Palace Stables $15,000
An item was inserted last session,
but not expended. .
Rep. Dickey moved to refer it to
Rep. Thurston seconded the
amendment, as part of the amount
voted last session went to huv a
piece of land.
Minister Gibson said 2,000 and
odd was so expended. ,
The amendment was lost.
Rep. Dickey moved that the ayes
and noes be called on the item.
Noble "Walker protested against
the ayes and noes, not on account of
the time it took, but because there
was no record of committee trans
actions beyond the report of the
chairman to the house.
Rep. Thurston could not under
stand why the President of the As
sembly should object to the ayes and
noes in committee. The committee
could decide how to act for itself.
It might not be competent for a
fifth of the committee to older the
ayes and noes, but it certainly was
for a majority. If a majority or
dered members to stand on their
heads they would have to obey.
The chair ruled that a majority
could order the ayes and noes, and
the motion to do so was put and
lost. The item then passed.
Minister Gibson moved to insert,
Encouragement of Iminlgration.$30,000
He would be glad if there was no
necessity for a largo expenditure
under this head, and the Govern
ment decided somo time ago to
undertake no more than the ordinary
assistance to planters. Instructions
had accordingly been sent to Japan
and England to stop supplies, but
the despatch to London artived too
late, and a vessel was now on its
way out .with Portuguese immi
grants, which would cost tho Gov
ernment 22,000 or 623,000. Of
course planters would bear part of
the expense, but the gross amount
would be not less than 810,000.
Then there wcro moro South Sea
Islanders to he returned, and it was
impossiblo to state the requirements
exactly, therefore a margin would
bo necessary, and ho estimated that
30,000 would be needed.
Rep. Brown referred to tho com
mission paid "W. G. Irwin & Co. on
Japanese immigration, saying that
firm had no more to do with it than
ho had, and he asked if any of this
amount was intended to be spent in
Minister Gibson assured the ques
tioner that tho inattor would bo en
tirely in tho hands of the Govern
ment, and no agents or middlemen
would bo employed.
Hep. Kalua moved a reference of
the item to a committee. He had
heard that the Government professed
nn intchtion to slop further lmrnl
giation, but if tho despatch lo Lon
don was too late it was delayed pur
posely. There wasa steamer leaving,
according to his information, for the
Coast tho day after tho Government
came to the decision to suspend
operations. A telegram could have
been sent by that steamer, to bo
despatched from San Francisco to
London, but it wa3 withheld until
the next steamer. Now more immi
grants were coming, to cost 25,000,
but the Minister had not informed
the house what plantations wanted
them. It was lime the Government
gave up Importing laborers for sugar
plantations. Let tho planters import
their labor themselves, llushesaid,
although himself interested in sugar
planting. The items just submit
ted by the Minister nggiegatcd
208,000. Public property was to
be sold to provide for the increased
expenditure, but the roads aud
bridges could go begging. lie ob
jected to these extravagant appro
priations because a large proportion
of the money was used up in com
missions. The Minister did not
give paitieulars of more than 25,
000 wante'd, and perhaps the differ
ence between that aud 830,000 was
intended for commissions. He ob
jected to the Government keeping
immigrants in Honolulu on a pro
longed picnic for weeks and even
months, feeding them on beef, mut
ton and the like.
Minister Gibbon said there were
plenty of applications for Portu
guese laboieis, and he believed most
of them could be disposed of
promptly on arrival. He was sorry
the lion.' member had brought in
mere street tumors.
Rep. Kalua denied that the story
was idle street talk.
Rep. Thurston demanded a cate
Minister Gibson said there was a
foundation for the story, but not
for the construction put uu it. The
decision referred lo was that the As
sembly was not to be asked for any
cousidciablc grant. It was not ft
regular Cabinet meeting, but a con
ference between himself and the late
Minister, Mr. Gulick, President of
the Board of Immigration. The result
of that conference was appioved by
Ilis Majesty. Afterward it was
agreed between them (himself and
Gulick) that instructions should be
Rep. Brown asked who was Presi
dent of the Board of Immigration
Minister Gibson said none had
been formally appointed. Perhaps
now, with nothing to do, there
would be no need for either a Presi
dent or a Board of Immigration.
Continuing, he said there was a mis
understanding between himself and
Mr. Gulick as to who should have
wiitteu the instructions, which
caused the delay mentioned. How
ever, ho believed the vessel was
chartered before the instructions
could have reached London even by
the first steamer.
Rep. Brown asked if more Jap
anese were coming.
Minister Gibson said he had writ
ten a private letter to Mr. R. "W.
Irwin, Hawaiian Charge cV Affaires,
informing him of the Government's
decision, and if more came it would
be at their own risk.
The item passed.
Rep. Kaunamano moved the corn

adopted by the house.
