WHAT HAS BEEN DONE.
Tho Legislativo Asbcmhly liieh
opened on the IlOtli April is now
elose on throe months in session,
to-day heing the S7tli on which the
House has been actually engaged in
the despatch of business. AVe have
often had occasion to characterize in
strong term'' the wordy harangues
by which valuable time was wasted,
but while we have no reason to
withdraw what ha- heretofore been
written on thi point, we do not
hesitate to accord many of the mem
bers high pr.iise for the industry ex
hibited by them in the performance
of their legislative duties. In this
easy going climate, ordinary mortal
are generally satisfied with ery
little work, and it would not be in
compatible with the usual order for
legislators to exercise themselves,
like other people, in not doing too
much. The principal acts which
have been perfected and become
pait of the statute laws of the king
dom, arc those relating to the re
building of the city of Honolulu,
the practice in escheat of lands, the
encouragement of steam navigation,
and the inquests of fires. The act
to regulate the erection and repair
ing of buildings in Honolulu is al
most a transciipt of the law of the
city of San Francisco, on the same
subject, and received the royal sanc
tion on the 29th of May. Its salu
tary effects arc already visible. It
ought to be noted that contempo
raneous with this act, provisions
were made through the Interior
Department for the extension and
widening of streets. Tho re-built
parts of the burnt distiict have not
that solidarity about thorn which
was described about a year ago in
this paper as inviting a conflagra
tion, and foi ming accummulalions
of pestilential centers. Buildings
on opposite sides of the streets now
btand about fifty feet apart; veran
dahs arc raised to more airy heights
and are less unsightly, eight feet
alley ways 1 tin between buildings ;
and altogether the Chinatown of the
future will be a great improvement
on the densely peopled, close-packed
fabrics that formerly suggested piles
of lumber tumbled down from the
moon. The fire limit haB been con
siderably extended, and the red
wood and pine of last year has given
place to substantial, though not gen
erally over beautiful laige brick
The act for the encouragement of
steam navigation, passed the 10th
day of June, gives steamship com
panies plying between ports in the
Hawaiian Islands and foreign ports,
as well as those carrying the Ha--waiian
mails exemption from port
charges, import duties on coal,
machinery and supplies, and other
A $2,000,000 loan bill was intro
duced early in the session, to pro
vide for certain internal improve
ments, but subsequent events seem
to have caused a change of Minis
terial policy in that direction, the
Minister of Interior having an
nounced a few days ago that sales
of Government lands might be
effected to a sufllcient exteut to
realize the required amounts.
Prominent among the events of
the session are the Thurston apo
logy, the change of Ministry, the
Kona and Kaanapali election cases,
and the Molokai and Lanai investi
gations. The Thurston apology was an
hour's oration, probably the ablest
delivered during the bession, in
response to a demand for an apo
logy for a reinaik made reflecting
upon the conduct of a Cabinet Min
ister. While the House accepted
tho apology," it was plain that
many honorable members were, left
under the impression that the plucky
member for Molokai had adminis
tered some of his colleagues a very
The Itona and ltnnnnpnll election
oases were petitions against tho sit
ting members, in the former case,
ou tho ground that the majority on
which the member was elected, had
been created by voters imported
from other districts, and in the
other case, -that the successful can
didate's majority was secured by a
batch of voters in the district being
shut off from the polls. Roth mem
bers retained their seats.
The change of Ministry was con
summated suddenly, the membcis
of the new Cabinet taking their seats
on the morning of the 1st of July.
The Molokai and Lannl investiga
tions were enquiries into charges
made by the lepers of Molokai
against Minister Gibson, ns Presi
dent of the Hoard oi Health, and by
certain voters on Lanai against him
as 'proprietor of thu lands, in the
former case that the wants of the
lepers were not properly attended
to, and in the latter, that coercion
had been used by Mr. Gibson's
agents to inllucncu the votes of his
tenants at last election. Hcyoud
the. airing of petitioners' grievances
in the House, nothing came of
either euquiry, except the adoption
of a resolution that there was no
evidence to implicate the Minister
in tho l.&uai irregularities.
DEBATES IN IHE HOUSE OF REPRESEN
TATIVES. Kery visitor to YVa-hiugton, of
course, goes to hear a debate. In
the House of Representatives he
will be lucky if he hear- anything at
all. The hall is very large: its
aeon-tic properties seem to be al
most as bad as those of our Houses
at Westmiustes. and the hubbub of
conversation is incessant and unre
strained. 1 have seen a member
leave his seat and come down to the
open space by the Speaker's. chair,
where a select audience, standing,
gathered round him. The perpe
tual lapping of the President's ham
mer serves only to increase the din.
Without the voice of a Senator
nobody can take part in what is
ironically called a deliberation. On
passing to the Stuiatc you iind your
self ina different atmosphere. Hut
the interest in the debates in both
Chambers is greatly diminished by
the fact that the really important
work is done behind the scenes in
committee and caucus. The aver
age of the speaking is, I should say,
decidedly higher than in our Parlia
ment, and it is no longer in the
"spread-eagle" and "high-falutin"
stj-le. Americans, though singu
larly impatient of criticism, are also
singular' quick in profiting by it.
But of the American speakers that
I have heard hardly one, I think,
has been free from a grave defect,
attributable perhaps partly to col
lege training in elocution. You al
ways feel that they are speaking for
effect; whereas, when you are list
ening to Mr. John Bright you feel
that his single object is to com
municate and impress his convic
tions. The fault was most conspi
cuous in Everett, whose language
and delivery were perfect; his
delivery, indeed, was too perfect,
for he gesticulated not only with his
arms, but with his legs. It was
supposed that he even played little
stage tricks to enhance the effect.
Once, it was said, when he entered
the hall to deliver a Fourth of July
oration, a veteran soldier respect
fully rose from his seat. "Sit down,
down, venerable man," cried Everett
in his most impressive tone ; "it is
for me to riho in your." "Why,
sir," replied the simple-minded
veteran, "you told me I was to
stand up when you came in."
Goldwin Smith, in Macnullan's
"Please, ma'am, I wishes to give
you a month's notice, ma'am,"
"Why so, Mary Ann?" "Well,
ma'am, not that I wants to say any
thing against you, but since you've
put thai billiard-table up, ma'am, I
don't call it a respectable house."
Miss Philadelphia: "And so you
enjoyed your tour in Europe?"
Miss Boston: "Oh, Indescribably."
"Did you see the aqueducts in
Rome?" "Yes, and they swam
beautifully." "Swam ! Whntswam?"
"The aqua ducks, of course."
A fashionable Journal says:
'Bows on chairs have had their
day." Probably so; but beaux on
chairs are still having their nights.
Mauve is a favorite color in Eng
land, and was selected by the Prin
cess of Wales for the costume she
wore at the state ball.
A young woman of Woodstock,
Canada, crossing a field heard a dis
tant crack of a rillo. and then felt a
slight blow on her back. Investiga
tion showed that a lille bullet had
cut her dress as cleanly as a razor,
and had just grazed her corset.
