The houso reassembled at 1 :3fj.
Hep. Dickey f-aiil he was asto
nished at the doctrine promulgated
by His Excellency the Attorney
General, who held that as there was
no clause in the Constitution or law
prohibiting the Cabinet from bor
rowing money, therefore they had a
right to do it. This doctrine was
preposterous ; it was dangerous ; it
was worse it was revolutionary.
If this doctrine was sanctioned by
the Legislature, it would put into
the power of any Cabinet to pledge
the credit of the Government to any
extant, and to mortgage the coun
tiy to a foreign Power. Why,
then, wa3 there no clause in the
Constitution prohibitingllis Majesty
from ceding this country to Ger
many V Was it supposed for a mo
ment that if he should do so without
the consent of the people it' would
not precipitate a revolution 1 No;
there wns unwritten law as strong
as the written Constitution itself.
Now, for the matter of precedent.
Why was article -U of the Civil Code
(cited by His Excellency) made the
lawy Why was it necessary to give
him the power under restrictions to
borrow S2f,000? Because he did
not have that right already. Why
were tho Loan bills of 1872, 187-1,
187G, (8300,000), and 1882 ($2,
000,000) passed? Because the
Government did not already have
such power. It would be childish
to pass such if the Government al
ready had the power. He would
s3' again that the doctrine promul
gated by the Attorney-General wns
dangerous and revolutionary. The
Minister of Interior did not go so
far ; he only claimed that the great
cmeigcnoy excused the act, which
was not in itself strictly lawful.
This, however, was not borne out by
the facts. There was no great
emergency which could not have
been prevented b' any ordinary
economy. The Government in the
past two years had wasted unneces
sarily much more than the amount
of this special loan. They had
spent 801,8-12.03, not allowed by
the Appropriation bill, and without
action of the Privy Council. They
had wasted large amounts in the De
partment of Foreign Affairs in un
necessary expeditions to foreign
countries, and in the Interior De
partment 1)' going to unnecessary
expenditures for expensive build
ings, far in excess of the amounts.
If the Government had used ordi
nary economy no necessity for a
special loan would have arisen. If
the Ministry are authorized to bor
row without law (as the present
Minister of the Interior and the Attorney-General
say th'ey are), why
did they introduce a Loan Act this
Rep. Kaulukou renewed his mo
tion to indefinitely postpone the
resolution. He believed in having
the laws properly executed and car
ried out. Sometimes circumstances
arise where a law, if carried out,
causes oppression. A former Gov
ernment loaned a bank an amount
at seven percent, and the bank
loaned it out to other parties at nine
percent, and thus a disaster was
averted. Hon. Mr. Bishop says it
was against the law, 'but the cir
cumstances justified them doing so.
In that case it was some individuals
who were in the straightened cir
cumstances, and so it might bo with
the Government. Would it be a
wise thing, if the Government was
temporarily short of money, to go to
tho expense of summoning the
Legislature? He thought the Gov
ernment would be justified in reliev
ing tho pressure without doing that.
He was satisfied the loan was nego
tiated for carrying on tho Govern
ment, and not for the private wants
of the Ministers. Mr. Dole could
not say the money had been appro
priated or embezzled by tho Minis
ters. He did not make that charge.
No one in tho house thought that
the Ministers had borrowed the mo
ney and put it in their own pockets.
Therefore they could not find fault
with the Ministers. Many resolu
tions had been brought in against
the Minister of the Interior, but his
skin was thick and it would take
more than this resolution to have any
effect upon him. He would keep
his promise with Dr. Wight and not
move tho previous question.
Rep. Kuuhanp supposed the ttou
blo was that tho rate of interest in
the loan act was too low for the Gov
ernment tp obtain money there
under. Nobody would aljpw his
business agent to go beyond his in
structions, and the Government was
tho agent of this Legislature. Now
was tho timo for the Assembly to
interdict further traversing of its
authority by tho Legislature,
Rep. Dole claimed that the argu
ment of the Attorney-General was a
boomerang, which recoiled on those
making use of it. The law riimtnl
by him only authorized borrowing

wlthin a limit that had

i.uv.1, ,,y me iuiuisiry in tins case.
I hat thore was no law forbidding
the Ministry from borrowing without
nurhority was no justification for
tho course pursued. It might as
well bo stated that becauso there
was no Jaw to the contrary, the
Judges of tho Supromo Court could
borrow money on behalf of tho Gov
ernment, lie did not know nitnli
about Mn Gregg or his acts, but
remembered that there was a great
deal of opposition to him, ho being
ultimately driven out of the cotin
tiy, probably on account of this
very thing of borrowing money with
out authorization by law. The
principal argument for this borrow
ing nnsllml of emergency, yet no
emergency had been shown. In
tho case of a former Government
loaning money, if they did so with
out authority of the Privy Council it
wns an illegal act; but if they had
such authoiity, it was justifiable,
for the situation was one of emer
gency. Had the Ministers loaned
Hint money without authority, they
would have been personally rcponsi
blc for it in case of loss, unless in
demnified by act of tho Legislature.
Discretion in executing the law was
entirety (tiifercnt lrom deliberately
violating tho law. The policy and
sentiment of the Government of this
country for twenty years had been
that the Ministry should receive
authority from the Legislature to
negotiate loans. If anything was
scttlod by the action of former Min
istries and Legislatures, and tho
wcll-undcrslood sentiment of the
country, it was that the borrowing
of money was vested in the Legisla
ture. He had beard very little, if
any, argument against this resolu
tion. It was not shown to be per
sonally Vindictive or malicious, and
if indefinitely postponad, it amount
ed to giving the "Ministry license to
borrow as much as they pleased, in
which case the Legislature might as
well shut up shop.
Rep. Kalua moved the ayes and

tho resolution was indefinitely post

helani, at first voted "doubtful,"
was still in doubt when called a
Rep. Dickey objected to the votes
of the Ministers being recorded, as
they were interested.
Rep. Thurston propounded the fol
lowing question to the Minister of
WiimniAS, It was stated by your
self this morning that certain tem
porary loans made by the Govern
ment had been repaid with cash, and
certain of such loans had been can
celed by the transfer of lands,
please state,1 1st, the date of each
transfer of land, for such purpose ;
2d, the name of person, or persons,
or company, to whom each of
such transfers were 'made ; 3d, the
name and locality of each land or
piece -of land so transferred; 4th,
the amount of tho indebtedness can
celed by each of said transfers.
NATIONAL LOAN MIX.
Rep. Thurston presented the fol
lowing report from the Special Com
mittee on the Loan bill :
Hon. J, S. Walker, President
Legislative Assembly, Sir: Your
special committee to whom was re
ferred a bill introduced ly His Ex
cellency W. M. Gibson, entitled "An
Act to authorize a national loan, and
to define the use to which the money
borrowed shall be applied," report
that they have considered the same.
In view of the fact that the intro
ducer of said bill has. on behalf of
the Government, and since the in
troduction of such bill, stated to tho
Assembly that the Government no
longer considered a loan necessary,
and that no change of biich policy
has since been announced by the
Government, your committee do not
deem it incumbent .upon them, or
advisable, to make any recommend
ation concerning said bill, and there
fore return the same to the Assem
bly without recommendation.
L. A. TnunsTON, Chairman.
.Ciias. R. Bisiioi',
A. S. Clkoiiokn.
Minister Dare, a member of tho
committeo, gave his reasons for not
signing the report.
Minister Gibson, also a member of
the committee, while concurring in
tho report did not sign.. As tho
Loan bill was the order of the day
for Friday, he should reserve his re
marks until then.
Rep. Btdwn moved the report bo
adopted and tho committee dis
charged. When the Loan bill was
first introduced he favored it, but.
binco then ho had heard tho Govern
ment dd not want a loan, so had
changed his mind,
Rep. Kaulukou moved tho report
bo accepted and laid upon tho table
and considered with the bill on Fri
day. Tho latter motion prevailed,

mitteo, with amendment to have

Minister Dare movul an amend
ment, pn serving the three ycars.but
foifcliitii! tho charter if tho' railroad
is nut completed and equipped with

Rep. Castlo moved an addition to
the amendment, which the Minister
Rep. Kaulukou opposed the
amendment, holding that the limita
tion might deter capitalists from
venturing in the enterprise.
The amendment carried.
Rep. Thurston moved an amend
ment, forbidding T rails and only
allowing flat rails, as less dangerous
to ordinary wheel carriages.
Noble Macfarlauc asked if the
provision, that the rails must bo
Hush with the street, would not ob
viate any such liability.
Rep. Thurston said it would not,
as the objection had greater force
here where the streets were not
paved. Cities abroad had discarded
T rails after trial.
Noble Maefarlano had observed
in San Francisco that the street was
paved on each side of the T rails
for eight or ten inches to prevent
the street wearing away. He thought
the objection was sought to bo met
in this bill, and would not like to
vote on a technical point without
Minister Dare agreed completely
with the lion, member for Molokai.
A war against T rails was going on
all over America. Paving with hard
material was ineffective, for the
flanges of the wheels must have
trenches to run in.
Rep. Dickey supported the amend
ment, which passed.
Noblo Clcgliorn moved an amend
ment, requiring Hie company to
widen streets at its own expense,
where they were so narrow that the
railway would shut out ordinary
Rep. Kaulukou objected, holding
that the streets were mentioned in
the bill, and there was no danger of
the track being laid through any
The amendment was lost.
Rep. Dole moved an amendment
to have the track laid on one side of
the street, instead of the middle, as
the streets were too narrow for a
track in the center.
Noblo Bishop opposed the amend
ment. With the track on one side,
no carriage could stand on that side.
The amendment passed.
An additional section, Referring to
the coming into effect of the law,
was added on motion of Minister
Dare, and then the whole bill passed
to engrossment, to be read a third
time on Tuesday next.
Second reading of an act to con
tinue the subsidy heretofore granted
for mail communication between the
Hawaiian Islands and the United
States of America. With majority
and minority reports of Committee
Mr. Brown moved that the subsidy
bo placed at S 1 ,000. His reason
was that Mr. Spreckels had told him
and others that was all he wanted.
Here was a change to save 81,000 a
month, which could be taken and
expended on the roads in the outer
Rep. Kaulukou moved the section
pass as in the bill. A man says a
thing one day, and changes his mind
tho next. Chances often take nlace.
Once Mr. Brown was a little babe,
but was now changed into a hand
some looking man.
Rep. Thurston said they should
get the service as cheap as possible.
If they could get it done for S1,000
there was no necessity to pass
81,500. He did not admire the
methods of the present Administra
tion or its connection with Mr.
Spreckels. The last subsidy bill
was violated. From the month of
December, 1885, to March, 188G,
practically thero was only one mail
a month, and yet the full subsidy
was paid. Therefore tho company
wns paid money it wns not entitled
to. The Minister of Finance wns
liable out of his own pocket. As a
matter of fact, the late Minister had
no money, and was asking the houso
for a pension for giving other peo
ple's money away. The whole thing
was queer, and left a bad taste in
his mouth. At the .same time tho
service was wanted, but it should be
carried out according to law. For
a portion of last period the scrvico
had been conducted in vessels of
less tonnage than tho conditions
demanded. As evidunce that it
could bo done for $1,000 they had
Mr. Spreckels' own word. Ho could
not understand why a steamer run
ning tho year round, full of passen
want such a largo subsidy
Noblo Macfarlauc said Mr. Spreck
els also spoke to him about 81,000
being sufficient. But he qualified it
on the condition that if retrenchment
was carried out he would niako a
present of tho 8500.
Rep. Thurston If that is not
cheek I don't know what is.
Noblo Maefarlano said fiat later
on Mr. Spreckels informed him ho
had received a letter from the
Oceanio Company stating tho service
could not be done fur less tmu
81,500. Ho was not thoro with
any intention of lobbying tho bill
through the houso. Certain irregu
larities had been referred to, but
those were matters for tho Minister
to regulate. The Australian mail
service, which was gratuitous to this
