PROTECT THE FISH.
Undoubtedly ilsh in Hawaiian
waters -are us much in need of iiro
tcction ns birds on Ilawaiinu lands.
In the past, when Hailing wai ontirelv
in the hands of the nativo people,
there was not the same need for
protection as now that the industry
is largely in the hands of I he Chi
nese; for natives are not in the habit
of scooping up everything in the
shape of fish, big and small to
gether, as the Chinamen do. Then,
considering that lish food constitutes
an important staple in the national
dietary scale, while bird llesh may
be regarded more in the light of a
luxury, it will be admitted that pro
tection of lish is more important
than protection of game. It is a
matter that Miotild be dealt with by
the Legislature at it present ses
sion. If left to stand over for
another two years, incalculable
damage will be done. Chinamen,
who bid fare to secure a monopoly
of this industry, um nets of very
fine meshes, by which small and im
mature lish are caught, and a scarcity-
must follow if they aie allowed to
keep on using such nets. A short
and simple measure will meet the
case. It is not an abstruse and
complicated matter that requires
long consideration or extended in
vestigation. No doubt the Minister
of Interior will be able to produce a
bill to cover the ground, that will
require but little amendment, and
can be passed through its different
stages without delay. It is to he
hoped that this will be done.
Monday, Aug. 23rd.
The Assembly was opened with
prayer at 10 a. m., n quorum being
present ten minutes later, viz. :
Ministers Gibson, Creighton, Kanoa
and Dare ; Nobles Walker (Presi
dent), Clcghorn and Martin; Reps.
Keau, Lilikalani, Uaker, Kauhi,
Amara, Brown, Kaulia, Kaulukou,
Pahia, Kauiiamano, AVight, Naliale,
Nahinu, Kalua, Aholo, Richardson,
Dickep, Kaai, Thurston, Paohaole
and Palohau. The minutes of last
jneeting were read and coiilinned.
Kep. Kaulukou, byleac, read a
petition from Mr. Fred. Wuiiden
berg, asking for an appropriation of
81,800, as compensation for the
Hervices of the steamer .lames I.
Dowsett, in making :t(i consecutive
trips from the 2nd of June, 188d,
according to the terms of a subsidy
granted by the last Legislature. Re
ferred, on motion of Hep. Kalua, to
the select committee on an item of
85,200 for the Wilder Steamship
Rep. Castle presented a petition
from one Kaluni, asking for an ex
change of land witli the Govern
ment. Rclerred to Minister of
Rep. Kalua, a petition with 200
signatures from Lahaina, praying
for the removal of the Government
physician at that place. Referred
to Sanitary Committee.
Rep. Nahinu, a petition praying
lor assistance to those interested in
the manufacture- of taro Hour. Re
ferred to Committee on Commerce.
Rep. Kaunamano, from the Sani
tary Committee, reported on a peti
tion from Honolulu, that a pile of
manure near the Branch Hospital be
removed. The committee recom
mend that the President of the
Board of Health be requested to in
struct tho olllcer.-? to have the ac
Rep. Keau said the cause of com
plaint had been removed, and moved
the report of committee bo adopted.
Minister Gibson corrorated the
btateuient of the previous Hpeakcr,
the nuisance being in course of re
moval at his instance.
Rep. Kaunamano also read a re
port from the same committee, sign
ed by himself and Heps. Palohau,
Naliale and Kauhi, on a resolution
that 8200 be granted as a gratuity
to encourage II. S. Meekapu for
curing certain lepers. They are of
' opinion that some assistance ought
to be rendered to this man, who had
used nothing but nnt'vo medicines,
and reconiine.id that SloO be placed
in tho Appropriation Bill for that.
Rep. Keau moved the adoption of
Rep. T)olc objected to its adop
tion, because it would bo a bad pre
cedent. Any man might come in
and say he cured leprosy and claim
a reward. The people benefited
should pay the doctor, and the
house ought to have certificates of
the cures from regular doctors.
Rep. Kaulukou thought the re
marks of Rep. Dole very plausible,
but the doctors seemed to have
made up their minds that leprosy
was incurable. It might be that
they were right, but when they saw
a man who had been bad v-ith
leprosy going about the streets
cured, it raised hopes in their
breasts that something could bo
done for the cure of this disease.
He gave details of cases benellted
by this native practitioner, and said
if 81,000 was asked he should vole
Rep. Kaunamano spoke to the
same effect as to tho success of
Meekapu, and said if this was a
white man, the member for Lihue
would have jumped to the support
of the motion.
Minister Gibson, referring to one
of the cases mentioned by the Inst
two speakers that of a native pastor
of Vailuku said he knew that the
patient was in a very bad state, and
that a remarkable change had taken
place for the better under the treat
ment of Meekapu. His disease
looked like leprosy anil was pro
nounced leprosy, indeed was one of
the worst-looking eases the speaker
had seen. Owing to the common
belief that the disease was incur
able, the Boaid of Health had been
willing to make trial-, of diffeicnt
systems that offered any hope, even
of ameliorating the disease. They
had tried African, Hindu and
Japanese system'-, and he thought
they should stake a little on the
Hawaiian ancient practice. Not
withstanding the sorcery mingled
with tho Hawaiian practice, yet tho
ancient ITawaiians had discovered
potent remedial virtues in native
herbs. Their knowledge of certain
herbs corresponded in some degree
with that obtained by tho ancient
.Britons, the Aztecs of Mexico, and
other past races. The kahuna prac
tice of modern times had associated
with it more of sorcery nonsense
than that of ancient times. Mec
kapu's practice consisted in the use
of herbs without superstitious form
ulas. He agreed with the member
for Lihue that it would be inadvisa
ble to listen to every claim of re
ward for the cure of leprosy, but,
as he had stated, they had tried the
practices of other people, and he did
not look on this resolution as a bill
for services rendered. It was only
intended as an encouragement to a
worthy and earnest man, and, al
though he was not satisfied that
there was proof of a complete cure,
yet he believed this worthy Ha
waiian should be voted this small
Rep. Kalua supported the motion,
from his personal knowledge of the
Rep. Richardson was in favor of
having the amount paid from the
Board of Health appropriations, but
objected to the mode attempted,
winch, if itsucceeded, would result in
a string of applications for recom
pense from persons claiming the
power of curing leprosy. It might
be well if the Board was given means
for the judicious encouragement of
Hawaiian medical practice.
Rep. Kaiihane was in favor of
encouraging the practitioner in ques
Rep. Brown agreed with the mem
ber for AVuiluku, and moved the
report be laid on the table for con
sideration with the Appropriation
Laid on the table.
Rep. Dole, from the select com
mittee on u bill to amend the law
relating to the seiznre of spirituous
liquors, reported a substitute bill
and recommended its passage.
On motion of Rep. Kaulukou the
bill was read a second time by title
and, on that of Rep. Brown, passed
to engrossment, and then set for
third reading on Thursday.
Rep, Thurston was granted fur
ther time for the minority report on
the bill relating to tho Catholic mis
Jcp. Kalua presented the report
of a majority of tho select commit
tee "on the complaint of some of
tins people on the Island of Lanai,
aspresented by the resolution of the
Hon, L. A. Thurston." He read
the Hawaiian version, and presented
the House witli copies ol the report,
printed in both langiiagesi The
Knglish occupies a pamphlet of !i'J
pages, and contains all tho evidence
taken before the committee. The
report concludes as follows:
"Therefore, your Committee are of
the opinion, Jroin consideration of
the foregoing evidence relating to
the case, that, in accordance with
the resolution introduced by the
member from Molokai, Hon. L. A.
Thurston, Mr. Gibson, in his capa
city of a Government oilicor, is
guilty of the offense charged, ho
being Minister of Foreign Affairs at
the time of tho oppression of the
petitioners, and that all the charges
made in tho resolution have been
brought home to him." Signed by
John Y. Kalua, J. Kauhano and A.
Rep. Richardson moved, as the
report was presented to each mem
ber, that tile rending of the English
version bo dispensed with. I
Minister Dare asked who author
ized the printing of the report.
Rep. Kalua said it was tho com- I
mittee, who had deemed tho matter I
of sulllcicnt importance to have tho '
uvidenco laid before the house along
with the limling.
Minister Dare objected to the
issuing of a campaign document at
the publiu expense, and moved the
report be indefinitely posponed.
Rep. Kaulukou moved the house
take recess till 1 :!(0, which carried,

The National Liberal Federation

I of Gladstone's policy is declared to
j be assured in the early future.
I It is reported that there is a Clii

on the Ilungarin River, in Machoo-
ria, near the Russian boundary.
The Cabinet met on the afternoon
of the 10th, and remained in session

I The Cabinet decided, among other
things, to appoint a special connnis
i sion to inquire into the Belfast riots.
The Cabinet finally approved the
Queen's speech, and Lord Salisbury
will go to Osbourne on Sunday to
submit it to Her Majesty. The ma
jority of the members of the Cab
inet' were in favor of proroguing
Parliament until February, unless
unlooked-for events in Ireland
should make an aiilunin session
necessary. Sir Michael Hicks
Beach, Chief Secretary for Ireland,
expressed confidence in the Govern
ment's ability to preserve order
without having recourse to bpecial
Lord Salisbury, who was heartily
cheered on rising, congratulated
those present on the result of the
elections and expressed his pleasure
at Lord Roseberry's consistent con
tinuance of the foreign policy that
raised England in the estimation of
nations whose people were yearly
showing a desire for peace, which
would be maintained if the rulers
were guided by their people's wills.
He regretted that there remained a
subject for painful meditation.
"Every news," lie said, "reminds
us that Ireland is not yet inhabited
by a concordant and homogeneous
people. It is too early to enter into
details, but it is the duty of every
Government to devote its whole
energies to freeing the loyal people
of Ireland from the constraint exer
cised upon them, whether in the
form of riot or in the more danger
ous, insidious and affecting form of
outrage. While admitting the great
difficulty and responsibility of the
tasks which are so great that pre
vious Governments, equally anxious
with ourselves, only succeeded tem
porarily and to an imperfect extent,
we possess an advantage over our
predecessors which we hope to turu
to good use. We bear a mandate
from the people deciding finally, in
my opinion, irrevocably, the ques
tion which has wrecked the peace of
Ireland. fCheers.l The question
of an independent Government in
Ireland, after deep discussion and
advocacy by the most powerful
statesman this country has ever
seen, has been rejected emphatic
ally and unequivocally by an enor
mous majority of the people of this
kingdom. Loud cheers. J It is
not unworthy of remark that most of
the voicesj in favor of separation
have been obtained by the personal
influence of that great statesman
and upon other considerations apart
from the meiits of the question. . J
bellevo that our opponents will
eventually admit that this is Eng
land's final decision, armed with
which it is our duty to restore in
Ireland that social order, the loss of
which is only just cause of its dis
content. I am convinced that in
such policy wo shall find strongest
support in enormous population, of
which you are true representatives."
