The lioitsu lcsumcil :l 1 :!, nntl
resolved into L'OininiUi'u of tlie whole,
Noble ICnpciin in the chair, for the
consideration of the Aimropiiutlon
Minister Dliro desired to inseit nn

no necessity for refetencc.
IJep. Thurston's object, lie said,
was on the ptinciple of tlie thing,
as the house should not 'votfc money
Minister Dare had no objecion.
I'cp. Brown asked about an item,
with amount blank, for legal sen ices
of YV. Austin Whiting.
Minister Dare said when the state
ment was submitted to him he dicw
his ien thioiigh the amount, because
theie Mas no icgnlar claim fiom Mi.
Whiting in the depailnicnt. He had
asked that gentleman, if he had any
claim against tlie ollice to pieent it,
but none had been tendered.
The item parsed.
The police items wcie taken up,
with tlie majority and niinoiity re
ports of the committee of thirteen.
IJep. Uidiaidson moved that the
lepoit ot the majority be adopttd.
Hep. Blown inocd the passage of
the it n,
Police of O.ihu 990.000
It was P7li,0l0 in the bill, but the
police of O.ihu lcquircd hoises. lie
had noticed that when an oiliecr was
lcquircd with despatch, hacks had
to be hired at S, $1.50, or even $2
an hour. The Interior Department
once regulated hack cliaigec., but
now allowed the law to be a dead
Jotter. If the Department bought
hoise-., feed would also have to be
bought. With tegaid to tlie in
dividual pay ol police, ho belieed
it should not be settled by this house,
but by the Marshal and Deputy
Marshal. They had a better oppor
tunity ol obsen ing each mail's worth
than this house.
Bcp. Thuibton emphatically en
doised the remarks of Hep. Blown.
When they voted the pay of a
policeman at Koolauloa or Koolau
poko, they were doing what they
did not know anything about. As
the result of dividing up the pay all
round, as- was done last session for
the liist time, lie thought there had
been a gi eater expenditure than was
necessary. It was evident the ex
pense v.ouh.1 be greater this waj', for
the committee had put the amount
up 510,000, If tlje Attorney-General
legarded $70,000 as uecessaiy,
he did not see why 81)0,000 should
Hep. Aholo was in favor of the
jnajoiity leport. He knew more
about what was required for the
police of his District than the
Marshal or anybody else in Hono
lulu, and doubtless other members
could say the same with icgard to
their Districts. The committee gare
figures to show how they arrived at
Bep. Bichardson explained how
the committee arrived at the totals.
It would not he necessary to vote
the items separately if the repoit of
the majority was adopted.
Bep. Brown said that if the re
poit was adopted the items would
all have to be inseited in the-Appropriation
Bill. That was tlie way it
was done las.t year, so that the pay
of police occupied two pages in the
Bep. Kaulukou said the items
were only annexed to the report,
and would not necessarily have to
no voted in detail, lie agreed with
the belief that thu Marslml and
Deputy should fix individual com

Hep. Dickey moved !H,.H0, as
in the bill.
Be), lvalua moved it passed, an
recommended by the committee, at
Hep. Brown saw that last appro
priation was SU7..1 10 audit was all
bpeut. In tlie bill it was $.'11,110,
and he vwuited to know if the police
of Maui were to be minced.
Minister Daro had no idea of the
basis ol these iigiues.
Itep. Kaai moved $11,500.
Bep. Thurston objected to tho
proposed increase, when there lind
been no augmentation of the popu
lation of Maui. They must take
into consideration tho circumstances
of tho country and not raise appro
priations without cause. Ho moved
$J)7, 1 It), the samo as last period.
Bep. Dole said they were so in
tho habit of incicnsing items, that
even the member for Koolnuloa
could not comprehend how an item
could be reduced. The expenses
were increasing faster than the reve
nue. From his experience this hc
sion the speaker did not caie
whether lie was elected or not next
time. Hi' had been talking with
some of 1ih constituents, who wcie
on the police foice of Maui, and
found them satisfied with their pay.
He had been in the minority a good
many times this session and was
leady to be tlieie on this item.
Hep. Bichardson said one reason
for an increase was that two lepers
coiiTii t 1 ff murder had to be kept
in Wailuku jail, This was not an
increase or $10,000, but only $7,000
over last session.
Hep. Kaulukou said some planta
tion managers had asked for police
protection of their property, having
now to employ private watchmen.
Bcp. Dickey did not icgard it the
duty of the Government lo furnish
special protection to prhatj planta
tion's, lie would withdraw Ids mo
tion. The Attorney-Geneial ought
to post himself on these items. As
the Alloiney-Geneial could not give
apy information, the item should be
passed on the basis of last period's.
it was true more constables weic
needed in sonic localities.
y ster Dare said that the Attor-iKj-Genoial,
under the system in
vogue here before and the blyle of
legislation followed to-day, was no
thing more than a paymaster. A
sheriff could diaw on him for the
pay of constables in a certain Dis
trict, and if the amount was not
above the appropriation he had
simply to sign a w mi taut fin pay
ment at the Trcasiuy. Willi a
stiong wiist and a good gold pen ho
could sign any number of warrants.
Bep. Thurston was lather sur
prised at tlie statement of the Attorney-General,
that he was simply
a paymaster. While he was employ
ed in the ollice, for about K months
a detailed statement ot the police
service was sent down by each
sheriff monthly. It was the duty of
tlie Attorney-General to inform him
self and become able to advise the
olliceis under his Department.
Bep. Kaulukou made remarks ex
plnnatory ot the system, accoi ding
willi those of the previous speaker.
Minister Dare knew that the
sheiiif sent up a list, but the sheriff
was not appointed by the Attoiney
Gencral but by the Governor. The
Attorney-General was not in a
position to know the respective
needs of different districts. What
he umiplained of was that the Attorney-General's
ollice was not a
buie.iu of information but simply a
Bcp. Aholo said a better system
would probably be inagiuatcd under
the new Marshal.
Bcp. Dickey contended that the
Attoiney-General's depai t incut
ought to exercise full and minute
control over the whole police system.
Bep. Kaulukou objected that the
discussion was of no use, and if the
lion, member wanted reform let him
inliodiice a bill,
Hp. Dickey said he was only
niftl 'iu a frame for the picture.
Passed at $11,280.

Rep. Wight asked the Minister of
Finance, as a former Governor of
the Island, what was the necessity
for a Deputy Sheriff lor the island
as well as Deputies for the several
Minister Kanoa said it was the
act of last Legislature.
Rep. Kaulukou said tho Deputies
were appointed by the Sheriffs and
responsible to him. There was no
thing in the law to prevent the
Sheriff appointing a Deputy for the
Bep. Wight was npt asking about
tho modo of appointment, but the
necessity. A secretary to the Gov
ernor had been voted a balary, and
he understood that olllcer was to do
tlie work of Deputy Sheriff,
Bep. Kaulukou agreed that It
would be a good thing to have a
Deputy Sheriff for each of the other
Passed at $20,280.
Bcp. Kaunamano was going to
move an item that would stmt u
lively discussion, but as the mem
bcis had done a lot of hard worif he
would moved the committee rise.

THE HAWAIIAN TREATY.
Special J)iii,)(ich to tlu Jioiton
Washington, July'lO. Mr. Cailcr,
tho Hawaiian Minister here, has left
to spend his vitiation at Castlne,
Maine, satisfied that Congress will
take no action at this session cither
upon the piopositlon to extend the
lionty or upon the joint resolution
lo abiogate the treaty. The Ha
waiian ollleials hcio have just been
advised by the due com so of mail
of the change in tho Cabinet of
King Kalakaua, of which the topo
graph teccntly gave a ineagie notice.
It is an unusual proceeding to
change a Minisliy m the middle of
a legislative session, especially when
the majority of the Legislature is in
accoid with the existing Cabinet. It
is ascertained that the change is
mainly due to local reasons, and that
the new Ministry is better disposed
to a desiied sj'stcm of internal im
provements, for which the Hawaiian
Government is now endeavoring to
soouioa Kuiopcan loan. The in
come of the kingdom is sulllcient to
defny the ordinary expenses of tlie
Government, but it is inadequate to
cany on some of the internal im
piovemcnts that have been sug
gested. It has been intimated that
the change is due in part to a desire
of Spieckels to have a partial change
in the policy of the Administration ;
and while it is tiuc that two of his
friends have retu ed fiom the Cabinet,
it is also tine that two moie of his
friends have taken places in the new
Cabinet. Whatever changes may
be effected, Clans Sprockets doesn't
seem to lose his inlliience with the
A Rome despatch of Aug. l.'Jth
says: To-day 131 new cases of

Small-pox is spicading veiy ex

A Quebec despatch says that
Rome has finally spoken upon the
question of the Knights of Labor.
The society is unequivocally con
demned by the Iloly See, and the
bishops of the chinch aro enjoined
to proceed against it; as against all
seciet societies under the papal ban.
Cardinal Tascheieau has just com
municated this decision to the pub
lic here in tlie shape of a letter ad
dressed to the bishop.
Aichbishop Ileiss, of Milwaukee
in an inteiview in regaul to the
edict ol the Pope against the
Knights of Labor announced by
Cai diual T.ischereau at Quebec, says
he has not heaid anything in icgaid
to it. The edict may be a special
one for Canada, In case a similar
edict should bo issued for the Unit
ed States it will be made public by
Cardinal Gibbon at Baltimoio.
Tlie German Army is ananging a
celebration in honor of tho forth
coming ninetieth birthdny of the
Emperor, which is intended to be
fully worthy of the occasion. It is
proposed then to form a union of the
olliceis of the cntiie army corps and
found a philanthropic military insti
tution in honor of the Emperor.
The Emperor will be ninety years
old if he lives until March 22, 1887.
The Pope has been announced as
being ill and his life despaired of,
but his physicians say that there is
no immediate danger.

SKILLED i7 CUTTINU DIAMOND.
Diamond-cutting is a wotk which
requires great skill and indomitable
patience on the pint of the work
man, and his tiaining is long and se
veic, for, despite the machinery
w Inch is used, miich depends upon
tjie deftness qf the workman, who is
handsomely remunerated for his
tioublo, Ho must he ablo to tell
fiom an examination of the lough
stone what is the proper treatment
that is, its shape add the number of
its facets. An inferior workman
can spoil 20 or i'!)0 worth of pro
perty in as many seconds. But the
dilllcnlty may tho more easily be
imagined when wo bay (on Mr.
Streetei's authority) that even tho
Kohinoor has faults from the con
noisseur's point of view. This fa
mous jewel was so clumsily cut by a
Venetian named Iloitensio Boigio
that it was reduced from 79! qorats
to 18(5 and lendoied as dull as a
piece of rock crystal. It was after
ward reduced to 10(1 carats, and
even now still retains a vltieous
lustre. As a rule, a lough diamond
loses 75 per cent of its weight in
cutting and polishing if it is to bo
turned out in tho most effective
manner. -Pall Mall Gazette,
