Tomuay, Aug. 24 tli.
The liouso resumed nt 1 :t!5.
Hep. Kntilukou conlinuetl liis
speech on tlio Lanat matter, lie
conleiidiid that it was heymul the
scope of legislative cognizance, anil
that, even if the majority report was
mlopted, no relief would thereby he
afforded to Hie people of Lanal.
Tliete was no evidence that Mr.
(.Sihxoii had authorized liis agents,
it they could he called his agents, to
Uneaten the people with deprivation
of their privileges if they declined
to support the Government candi
dates. Therefore the committee
had arrived at a strained conclusion.
They were like men lost in the
woods ; they did not know how they
got (here. It amounted to nothing
that Mr. Henry Gibson did not ap
pear before Hie committee to deny
the charges, as he, knowing that
there was no case against Mr. Gib
son, had no occasion to appear.
The conclusion of the committee
Mas not justified by the facts, and
he thought the members for Kau
and Kwa must be orry they had
signed the report. He" considered
the minority had pi esenled the case in
its hue light, and would therefore
Aote for the adoption of their re
port. Hep. lvuuhanc considered it was
within the province of the Legisla
ture to euquiie into any complaint
of the people that they had been
oppressed by Government olllcers,
paitieularly if tiny of the opprcssois
weie members of the Ministry, lie
ias ery sorry that there should
have had any occasion for such an en
(ptiiy. It was only of late years
that they had heard in this country
of Go eminent candidate-., or Min
isterial candidates. It would be
much better if the Ministry left the
elections alone, allowing the people
lo -sole as they pleased.
Hep. Richardson said this was a
very important matter, and, as the
lion, member from llilo said that
every member should be heard from,
he dcsiicd to gie his opinion on it.
Yesterday the speaker was not in
favor of the indefinite postpone
ment of the' report. 'Whenever the
Hawaiian version was read, a mem
ber of tltc Cabinet who did not
understand a word of Hawaiian,
jumped to his feet and moved its
indefinite postponement. He thought
that was very strange.
Minister l)aie said he had the
English version on his desk before
he made the motion.
Hep. Hichardson was very sure
that the Minister had not rend the
report through before moving. He
knew that the members for Lahaina
(Kalua) and forMolokai had worked
tooth and nail against the speaker's
election. Nevertheless, he did not
feel himself bound to oppose every
thing that those members brought
into the house. Now, how over, hav
ing had an opportunity of studying the
report, he was bound to say' that he
arrived at conclusions different from
those of the majority of the commit
tee, lie did not consider that the
Minister's responsibility for the
actions complained of had been
shown by the evidence. In conclu
sion, he referred to what he" called
the pitiable tale of the trials en
dured by the lion, member for llilo,
in running his election. He would
bo better pleased had the lion, mem
ber told how )o had won hjs elpc
tion, as the recital of his experience
might be of benefit to the rest of
them at the next election.
Rep. Pnehaole related the history
of the case, and claimed that the
Legislative Assembly had a right tp
enquire into the conduct of a Min
ister as a member of this body.
Rep. Kaunamano admitted tlio
industry and honesty of the major
ity of the committee, but dissented
fiom their conclusions.
Rep. Dole wished to express his
disapprobation of the personal rc
maiks made yesterday, respecting
the appearance and private life of a
member, which had nothing more to
do with the question than the phases
ol the moon. That stylo of discus
sion was something new to tltis
house. In many years he had never
heaul a native Hawaiian engago in
kiicji iv discussion. That was re
served for strcut hoodlums anil
hautboys. There was a kind of
personal discussion which was ad
missible. Such was the discussion
of tlio acts of u Ministor. 'When
the matter first came before the
house, Minister Gibson appealed
eager to hae it investigated, but, if
the Bpoakor was not mistaken, he
had repented of that dosim. Still,
he was prepared to give tlm Minister
ciedit lor having honestly changed
his mind as to the jurisdiction of tlio
Legislature, That those people had
the right of recourse to tlio courts of
law was no leason why this Legisla
ture could not investigate the con
duct of any of its members. In
every country in llto world tlio leg
islatures investigated charges against
public men, in pioof of which he
iii8liinced tlio case of Gailmid, of
the United States Cabinet; those of
the Now York aldermen, some of
whom jvere in the penitentiary to
day as the result of such investiga
tions, and other cases, The dilll
culty in' tlio present ease was.
the argumont that tlio Minister
was not acting in his olllcial
capacity; but he thought the
Legislature should take cogiH
znucc of the acts of a Minister
which tended to subvert tlio laws
that ho was bound to protect. If
these charges wero tine, the Minis
ter was cortainly liable to censure
by this Assembly, because the laws
nllcged lobe tiavcised were those
guarding not the private but the
publiolibcitlcs of the people. If a
Government olllccr cheated a man
in a bill of sale or a horse trade, ho
doubted if this Legislature could
deal with the case. The questions
involved here wero more dilllcult
as legarded the merits than the
technical points. The defense
seemed to be that the Minister had
abandoned his sheep ranch to his
son-in-law (Mr. Haysclden), n
cattle drover, and a stock man, and
thai he knew scarcely anything of
what was doing on his Lamii estate.
The agent was his son-in-huv, the
drover (Morehead) his nephew, and
the stock man (Henry Gibson) his
son. It was improbable that Minis
ter Gibson turned over the ranch to
those men nnd never heard anything
more about the management. Al
though the fact that the agent lived
with Minister Gibson did notpioved
the latter's knowledge of all the
doings on the ranch, j'et it was hard
ly likely that Morchend and Henry
Gibson raised the icnts nnd turned
off the horses without the Minister's
knowledge. Mr. Morehead said
those actions were new thing and
he had no reason for them. The
speaker proceeded with a review of
the evidence in Hie repoit, to show
a probability of the Minister's re
sponsibility for the acts of oppres
sion. He held that if the corres
pondence before the election with
the agent in Honolulu was known to
Minister Gibson if it was not con
ducted with him then the fact that
the acts complained of were com
mitted, without airy countermand
from the Minister, lixed the respon
sibility lipon him.. This was not a
small matter, for if people in out
side districts, with few if any su
peiiors to consult with, weie op
pressed by men high in position, it
was of great inipoitance and should
be tlioioughly investigated by this
house. He did not know any 'mem
ber of this house who looked better
after his constituents than the lion,
member for Molokai. There was a
slavery of the mind which was worse
than that of the body, and if the
conditions attempted to be imposed
on the tenants of Lanai did not con
stitute slavery it was certainly some
thing eIy much like it.
Rep. Thurston was not going into
the merits of the evidence, but de
sired to mnkc remarks on some
points that had been laised. His
utterances yesterday were not de
signed lo inllucnce a decision on the
main question so much as to protest
against what he regarded as an at
tempted outrage on the decencies
of parliamentary practice. The
stand assumed by the lion, member
for Wailuku (Richardson) yesterday
was an Honor to him as a member of
the Ministerial side of the house.
The question yesterday was not on
the merits of the case whether Mr.
Gibson was guilty .or not guilty
but aB to whether the house was
going to be drivcu by the Attorn ey
Geneial to throw this matter over
without consideration. The Minis
try had not dared to bring the mat
to an issue on that line. The Attorney-General
had charged him
with vindictivencss, with pcisonal
and partisian desire to injure the
Ministry. This was not the first
time that such an insinuation was
put forth. He was repi esenled as
having been appointed at an opposi
tion caucus to biing forward all
sorts of resolutions and petitions
against the Government. To this
he would give an emphatic denial,
but assure the house that, so long
as any wrong existed, Molokai
would be heard from while beheld
Molokai's seat. Referring to Minis
tor Dare's opinion on the question,
ho said that when they had to
go abroad for an AUorney
General, they ought lo get better
law from him. It was on a par
with His Excellency's argument the
other day that because his father
gave ten cents to the support of an
lion, member's father, therefore he
was a better man than that lion,
member. If the speaker's father
had only put ten cents into the con
tiibution box, he should be ashamed
to tell of it. Ho should wait, at
least, till his father could have
afforded a quarter. It was doubt
ful if the father of His Excellency
did put in top cents, Riolmbly ho
only put in a brass button to rattlo
in tlio box. Ho (Thurston) was
prepared to publish a statement of
his election expenses on Lanai,
which amounted to S lfi distributed'
at 85 apiece to three liuuis. As to
the statement that the repoi t was in
his handwiiting, the fact was that
the English was a translation from
Hip Hawaiian version, and he had
written a portion of it to assist tlio
Minister Dare had not intended
to say any nioro, but could not
allow a charge against him of un
parliamentary practice to pass un
noticed. His motion to indellnitely
postpone tho lopoit was parliamen
tary and based on three distinct
reasons. First, the icport was
manifestly biassed ; secondly, the
conclusions wero not supported by
the evidence, and, thirdly, tho coni
mittco had been guilty of the un
pnillamcntary nets of giving it to a
newspaper before presenting it to
the house, and of having it printed
without tho authority of the house.
In answer to n question by Rep.
Brown, as to whether he knew what
was in the repoit before moving its
indefinite postponement, lie said he
had read a digest of the report be
foie the Hawaiian crsion was load
in tlio house. They could not al
ways tiust printers. The lion,
member had reflected on his law,
hut had never yet replied to a single
legal argument delivered by him.
Rep. Thurston remaiked that
when the Attoinoy-Genernl sub
mitted mi argument, he might be
prepared to loply to it.
Minister Dare replied that if the
lion, member could not comprehend
an argument, it? was doubtless be
cause be was born so. It appeared
as if tlio hon. member had never
heard of the speaker before. Well,
he had been in legislatures most of
the time since lie was 27 years of
age and was now 43, and the lion,
member would have heard of him if
he was a reader of Hie public piess.
Perhaps the lion, member could not
read. In all his public caieerhe
had never heard a word against his
character until he had done so in
the Opposition press or Honolulu.
Concluding, he said this icport
showed an unconquerable dcsiie on
the part of the lion, member for
Molokai and his associates, to be
smirch the character of Walter
Murray Gibson. According to the
icport, they had the privilege, it' a
man came before them to give evi
dence, to say ho perjured himself,
and if he did not .come befoie tltera
then he was guilty of the acts al
leged. The repoit of the minority
was sound in its legal and political
ethics, and was tlioioughly pieeise
and logical. It was said by Hie lion,
member that the Ministry was afraid
of having a vote taken yesterday.
On the contrary, the vote was de
layed because His Excellency "W. M.
Gibson wanted the Opposition to
kill their own case, to pump them
Minister Gibson would only oc
cupy about two minutes, but wanted
to refer to one point, as to a state
of oppiession on Lanai, and not
countermanded by him. There had
even been a lefeiencc to slavery, if
not of body, at least of mind. That
was fctiange to him. He had a lik
ing for Lanai, having lived on that
island for years, keeping his sheep.
Among a population of 400 or 500
people, himself and family were the
only strangers, but he had always
been on the most kindly terms with
those people. He often came to
town, leaving an only child among
those people without the slightest
thought of harm. The island of
Lanai had always been one of peace.
For three years not a case was re
ported in the District Court, so that
the question arose in the Legislature
whether it was wortli while voting
the salary of a judge. There was
an lion, member he thought he was
here now who held that was the
reason the judge should be paid, be
cause he was inlluential in keeping
peace. Lanui was not a dry island,
but abounded in springs so cool that
no ice was needed theie. As to
acts of oppression, why, it would
take 50 or 100 constables to enforce
such a taboo as that alleged. With
lCgnrd to horses, they knew that a
bucket of water was not too much
for a thirsty horse, and it had some
times been thought that a native
owning 10 or 15 horses should not
go to those water holes in dry times.
He could bring evidence thatLapaki
(one of the complainants) brought
10 norscs nerc tne oilier day to send
to Wailuku. He mentioned that to
show that there was plenty of water
on Lanai and no restrictions ex
cept, perhaps, sometimes in the case
of horses. Respecting firewood,
prohibition would be inoie dilllcult
than that of water. There were an
extensive wooded ridge and 110 ra
vines full of wood, - It would be
improssible a man would have to
be confined in a cell, in order to
prevent him getting fitewood. He
would beg to say to the lion. Assem
bly that there were no nets of oppres
sion that he had any knowledge of,
which ho should countermand. He
never knew of his friends interpos
ing any restrictions. Theie wero
over 800 horses on that island, and
he was not awai o of ever deriving
any revenue iioni that "source, for
Lanai was a beautiful pasture land.
It had 40,000 acies, every acre of
which would suppoit a dozen sheep.
There was no land in America that.
would compare with the pasture
land of Lanai. The people of Lanai
were his friends, and he would be a
desperately wicked man if he al
lowed any acts of oppiession upon
Rep. Kalua, as chairman, was
fiurpilbcd at tho conduct of Minister
Dare, who insisted that the com
mittee's work was all done by some
body else He held that tho work
of the committee was impartial,
Rcfeicenco had been made to
Hie peaceful character of Lanai,
buttheio were black sheep as well as
white sheep on that island. Ho did
not agree with the contention that
this was a matter beyond the pro
vlnco of the Legislature. If they
wero not to enter into such ques
tions, the tiino would come when nil
the power would center in one man.
If the Minister consented to those
acts, it was a disgrace that a man
holding so high a position should do
such things. Ilawaiinns put their
money together at one time to buy
tho island of Lanal, but one day
they woke up to find it did not be
long to theiu. Ho had heard of Hn
waiians being harnessed to the plow
