TUESDAY. AUGUST 21, 1880.
The opium traffic is pretty gener
ally considered to lie one of the most
infamous in the commercial v oriel.
No doubt many who arc engaged in
it would concede this much, but tho
greed of gain is a fatal bar to their
acting up to their convictions. The
opium license bill before the Legis
lative Assembly contemplates one
of three object", (1) to stimu
late the consumption of the drug,
(2) to prevent it, or (tl) to realize
revenue from it. If the Ilrt, the
bill is like the trallic, infamous; if
the second, it is idiotic, and if tho
third, it is both.
A legislature is supposed to have
some regard for the welfnic of the
people. And when a member of
that body seriously pioposes to
tnrow down one or uio Dai tiers erec
ted by honorable men in the
past between the people and ruin,
he betraj-s the trust of his constitu
ents. "Self-preservation is the first
law of nature," and it was in recog
nition of this maxim that the prohi
bition of opium became a law
of this Kingdom. Mr. Katinamano
now comes forward as the leader of
a crusade against prohibition which
has proven to be a very salutary
incisure. Persons who have re
Bided in the country for many years,
and who have observed the respec
tive effects of license and prohibi
tion, are unanimous in the opinion
that a return to the license system
will be an unmixed national
The main argument on vt liich the
supporters of license rely is the pro
fit license would turn in to the Gov
ernment. Tltcc people destroy
their argument by proving too much.
They are prepared to adopt this
Bcaudalous measure which will rob
thousands of the people of their
strength, their brains and their
money, in consideration of the Gov
ernment securing a share of the
"swag" in advance. If they had
exercised the same shrewdness, a
few years earlier, they might lra.e
provided in a similar manner for the
deficits in the water wotks depart
ment and the robbery of the Post
Office. Licenses to steal from both
those ofllces might have been granted
for a consideration. All that the
Government had to do to save itself
in both cases, v.as to put the licenses
high enough. This is precisely the
theory on which opium for revenue
purposes is attempted to be sus
tained. Not only is it proposed to license
the trafllc, but the licenses are to be
granted in such a way as to ensure
the worht possible reaiilts from the
repeal of the prohibitory statute. It
is intended to give two licenses.
This will provide for competition in
the business, and doubtless have the
effect of bringing the price of the
drug within the reach of persons
who at present cannot afford to in
dulge. The debauchery of tho
' population will thus be made universal.
NOTES AND QUERIES.
A contemporary intimates that
the trip round this island is becom
ing popular. If tho roads wero put
in tho state that they might be by
tho oxpondituro of some of tho
monoy now wasted iu fuss, feathers,
and fctichibiu the tour of Onhu
would become a joy to our own
peoplo and tho delight of strangers
within tho cornl gates
An exchange says: "Swearing
is wholly unknown in Japan. The
worst woid n Japanese ever applies
to a man whom he dislikes is
'beast.' " This is not likely to bo
true very long after foiiio of tho
Japanese laborcts in Hawaii lcttun
home. Tho Japanese nie swift
learners and ns susceptible, thoie
foto, to vulgar and vicious inlluences
as any tace cqunlli smart. There
is probably as much coarse swearing
to the square inch in Honolulu n
anvwheie in the wot Id.
The house did waste a day yester
day. This prodigality of time was.
however, due to the Government at
tempting to force an act ot self
stultification upon the Legislature.
Even admitting that the Lanai com
plaint was not a matter within the
province of the Legislnthe Assem
bly, yet once that body resolved
upon investigation by a committee,
it is an indignity to the honorable
members who obeyed the order of
the house, by bunging in evidence
and their finding thereupon, to at
tempt to throw all their wotk over
born d without examination.
Steamship Company, pioposcd that
the subsidy be fixed at ono thou
sand dollars for a round trip In
stead of fifteen hundred, ns tho bill
provides, which sum of ono thou
sand dollars for each round trip, wo
consider to be fully as largo as this
country is justified in giving for a
bi-monthly service, and to be n
sulllcicnt amount in the way of as
sistance, from the standpoint of tho
said companv judcinu from tho
above proposition of Mr. Spteckcls.
The minoiity of the committee
therefore recommend that the said
bill be so amended ns to subsidize a
service between Honolulu and San
Francisco once every four weeks
with the sailing days fixed half-way
between the sailing days of the
through line: or else that the sub
sidy be fixed at one thousand dol
lars a round ttip for a bi-monthly
line. S. 1$. D01.1:.

Hep. Kaunamano presented a re

a petition ftom Makawao, praying
for a law authoi izmg lepers to be
taken care of at their Ironies. They
arc of opinion that to grant the

mend that the further consideration
of the petition be indefinitely post
Hep. Dole presented a minority
report of the Committee of Com

Sidney Smith, formerly editor of the

paper is printed in Redwood city,
and is a well got up sheet. The

institutions of the county. It is a
special issue intended to present tire
attractions of San Mateo county be

President of the Legislative Assem
bly. Sin : The Committee on Com
merce, Agriculture and Manufac
tures, offer the following minority
report upon the bill introduced by
the lion. Noble J. M. Kapena, for
granting a subsidy to the Oceanic
The bill calls for a bi-monthly
seivice between Honolulu and San
Francisco and provides n subsidy of
one thousand five hundred dollars
for each round trip. If tire service
is performed as contemplated the
charge on the treasury will amount
to S7i,000 for the

First. Tho present financial sta
tus of the Government docs not jus
tify the nppiopriation.
Second Because with tho arrival
from and depaiture for San Fran
cisco, of tho through steamers once
iu each four weeks, there is no ne
cessity for a bi-monthly lino in addi
tion thereto. A steamer making a
i omul trip every four weeks between
Honolulu and San Francisco with
its sailing days fixed half-way be
tween tlio sailing days of the
through lino, would give us afoit
nightly service ncaily as advan
tageous as that of the proposed ser
vice and which would satisfacto
rily supply tho demands of our
Thud. Because, even if we de
sire tho bi-monthly line between
Honolulu and San Francisco, tho
proposed amount of subsidy is un
necessarily large, for as we are in
formed Mr. Spreckels a few weeks
ago, representing the Oceanic
Rep. Dole read a first time an act
to amend sec. 4, chap. 4o, laws of
1S8I, to facilitate the acquiring and
settlement of homesteads.
Rep. Kaulukou presented a reso
lution for an appropriation of
SI 2.'f8.G9, for the payment of certain
bills rendered by 11. 11. Maey for
work done on bridsies, etc.
Rep. Brown moved the resolution
be referred to the Committee on
Public Lands and Internal Improve
ments, for examination of the bills
Rep. Thurston moved that it be
refencd to tire Minister of the In
terior, as' were certain other road
and luidge claims.
Rep. Kaulukou said those cases
wcie not similar, as in this case the
claimant was in town pressing his
Minister Gibou read a letter from
Mr. Macy, stating the position of
the claim. He assured the house
that he had not neglected the ac
count, although it was a long-standing
one, and seconded the amend
ment, promising the intioduccr of
the resolution every information in
Rep. Kaunamano was in favor of
referring the matter to committee
and not to the Minister, because
there was a dispute between the
claimant and the Department.
Rep. Castle thought the proper
course was to refei the resoltttion to
committee. They were getting into
a loose way of doing business, re
feriing matters in dispute to Minis
ters probably because the latter
had seats in tho house. The com
mittee could investigate tire matter
thoroughly, and if the claim was
found iust a special appropriation
should be made.
Referred to committee.
Rep. Kaunamano moved that all
other petitioirs or resolutions, respec
ting load and bridge claims, be
taken from the table and referred
to the same committee. Carried.
Rep. Dickey moved a suspension
of the i tiles, to take from the table,
lead a second time by title, and
refer to a committee, tire bill chang
ing the place of holding court in
Makawao District. The motion car
ried and the bill was referred to the
Rep. Kalua moved a suspension
of the rules, to permit the Public
Lands Committee to report on a bill
i elating to sti ect railways. Carried.
The report recommends the passage
of the bill with amendment of one
Minister Date moved to lay the
report on the table for consideration
with the bill.
Rep. Kaulukou said the bill had
stood a long time, arrd' moved the
report be adopted.
Reps. Castle and Thurston favored
laying on the table, which on being
put was carried.
Rep. Aholo moved to take the bill
amending sees. 58 nnd 59, chap. 13,
laws of 1882, relating to the collec
tion of taxes, introduced by Rep.
Dole, and make it tire special order
of the day for Thursday next.

Now, thercfoic, believing that

Rep. Castle moved that the re
ports be made the special order of
the day for Saturday. Lost.
Rep. Kaulukou moved that the
minority report be adopted.
Rep." Dickey believed in giving
even nnd enemy justice. He did
not think that 'the evidence upon
which tho committee based their 10
port fully bore them out in their de
cision that the charges were proven
against Mr. Gibson. Tire evidence
showed without doubt that Mr.
Gibson's agents on Lanai weie
guilty of bribery arrd intimidation,
but it failed to show that Mr. Gib
son was personally cognizant of it.
He (Mr. G.) might be greatly at
fault in selecting such asrents, and
if he retained them in olllco alter
their acts had been proven, he might
render himself liable for any future
similar acts of theirs, lie could not
help believing tlrat when the resolu
tion was introduced, His Excellency
was entirely ignorant of the acts
charged, and while the speaker
could see plainly that his agents had
made themselves liable to a crimi
nal prosecution, he did not see how
their act being cii'iunal could im
plicate the Minister.
Rep. Kaulukou admired the lion,
member for Molokai for having kept
his word with his constituent on
Lanai. in pressing this ru-c; and
also admired the lion, member for
Lahaina for his industry iir the com
mittee. The leport of the majoiity
showed a desire at the outset to in
jure the Minister. Tire words, "and
unlit the said Minister to hold his
high olllco," proved the animus. He
contended that the lion, member for
Molokai had gone the wrong way to
effect his object. If the Minister
was guilty of great wrong-doing,
article 59 of the Constitution pro
vided the remedy. Impeachment
would have been the proper course,
but the lion, member knew that the
Legislature would not hear of 'im
peachment in this case. He went
on at length to recount cases of un
due influence on tire pait of the Op
position. Rep. Paehaole laised a point of
order. The campaign history of the
lion, member for Ililo might be very
interesting, but it had no connection
with the matter before the house.
Rep. Kaulukou said he had
noticed all through the session tlrat,
whenever the lion. Noble Bishop
was mentioned, the lion, member for
Molokai (Paehaole) got out his um
brella to shelter him. At tire con
clusion of his remaiks he moved for
a recess till 1 :!10, which carried,
the hour of noon having arrived.
