MONDAY. AUGUST 30, 188fi.
This morning's Adeerlixer finds
consolation for tho want of n quotum
at the Legislative Ilall on Saturday
morning, in tho belief that if mem
bers had not absented themselves
"Messrs. Dole and Thurston, aided
by their lieutenants, Messrs. Dickey
and Kalua, would probably have
wasted tho day in the discussion of
some frivolous question.'' The -!(-vertiser
admits that it may bo mis
taken in this conclusion, but takes
shelter behind tho assertion that it
is "the rational inference to be
drawn froiu their antecedent coutse,"
at the same time expressing regret
that these gentlemen should pursue
a course, "chielly because it tends
to discredit and bring the Legisla
ture into contempt." Now, we do
not agree with our con temporal yt
and seriously doubt if it can nnd a
dozen intelligent men in the entire
community who do. "With regard
to the gentlemen named, we are not
in their confidence. We seldom see
them in the streets or elsewhere.
"When wo do, we never converse
with them upon political matters.
They are not in the habit of visiting
this office, nor of suggesting,
directly or indirectly, matter for
publication. We have taken occa
sion more than once to appear in
their defence, and nioie than once
Lave been in opposition to them.
But have always followed our own
convictions, uninfluenced by them
or their friends. We believe in fair
play, and in the interests of fair play
have occasionally put in our humble
defence for these gentlemen, whose
treatment by our contemporary has
almost invariably borne tho stamp
of dastardly meanness. Moreover,
although not agreeing with their
entire Legislative couise we believe
that in tho main they have been on
the bide of right and justice, and the
intelligent public believe the same.
These gentlemen are represented by
this morning's paper in a light that
is positively unfair, unjust, and un
true. Their com se has not had a
tendency "to discredit and bring the
Legislature into contempt," but the
general courso of the majority on
ik. the other side certainly has had that
effect. Indeed, these gentlemen of
the opposition are applauded on the
outside for having manfully, bravely,
and persistently fought the people's
battles against overwhelming odds,
and having checked the operations
of those who seemed disposed to run
xiot among public interests. This is
the public sentiment, whatever our
contemporary may say or affect to
believe to the contrary. The Oppo
sition have not obstructed public
business, as charged. They have
opposed and obstructed, as in duty
bound, foolish and injurious meas
ures. Wise and beneficial legisla
tion lias received their support and
assistance, whether initiated by the
government or not. This is truth,
and what is inconsistent therewith is
AN INDUSTRY TO BE ENCOURAGED.
The South Sea Island trade, by
no means a thing to be sneered at,
is no doubt inci casing year by year,
and will in time assume those pro
portions due to enterprise, and be
come an object of consideration to
nil trading countries. As it is now,
the traffic there is greater than one
would suppose. Urigs, brigantines,
and schooners, chiefly from Ilong-
kong,,AiistraIaBift, tho United States,
and German', visit tho Islands and
trado extensively In copra, coral,
shells nnd shark-fins. Stations have
been established at various points
on tho Islands, and vessels have
only to go there unci load, us tho
station keepers do nil tho gathering
of the trade produce. The I'aciflo
Navigation Co. of Honolulu have
made many efforts to establish trade
"between the South Sea Islands nnd
Hawaii. Copra iu large quantities
Jias been brought here by tho Pacific
Nnvigatlon Co., shipped to Ocrumny,
llicro converted into oil, and sent
back to Honolulu. That is like
grinding down a crowbar to niako a
needle. The oil is considerably used
here in many ways, and if it were
clieap enough would do away witli
the Chinese peanut oil to some ex
tent. The oil-cake, (copra after the
oil is pressed out) h in demand here
by stock owners, for fattening pur
poses, but is not easily available be
cause of its cxpunsivencss. Could
not a factory be put up here? There
are several parlies in the country
who would gladly take the mailer in
hand, if they were encouraged by the
Government. They would put. up
proper works for manufacturing
cocoanut oil and oil-cake. They
would spend thousands of dollars in
the country, not only in the building
and machinery, but by employing
labor and purchasing all the cocoa
nuts grown on Hawaii nei. It would
stimulate cocoanut planting, in
crease the trade with the South Sea
Islands, and convert cocoanuts, that
are daily going to waste, into hard
cash. What more could be asked?
THE OPIUM LICENSE BILL.
Knirou Uin.i.r.Tix: It is not
my habit to express my opinions in
the newspapers, but I feel moved at
this time to say a few words in re
ference to a matter, which is of vital
importance to all living on the Ha
waiian Islands. "With others. I had
shared the hope that the present
session of the Legislature might
close without the introduction of a
bill to licensu the importation and
sale of opium, though this possibili
ty had been threatened some time
ago. It is with the greatest regret
that 1 learn that such a bill has been
formally brought before the House.
It is not my purpose here to rehearse
the arguments which have been so
frequently and with such force, em
ployed by those, who are opposed
conscientiously to the opium trallic.
The terrible evils resulting from the
use of this pernicious drug arc pa
tent to all, and here in these Islands
we have most overwhelming evi
dence of what this poison is able to
accomplish, morally and physically.
Brought in contact, as I am in my
missionary work throughout the
group, with those whose life has
been wrecked by opium, it is no
wonder that I foresee with appre
hension the great increased exten
sion of so ruinous a vice, a result
which would certainly follow the
licensing of this now forbidden
drug. It is simply playing with the
truth lo say that the use of opium
would not be increased. Intelligent
Chinese with whom I have spoken
on this point, have laughed at such
an idea. 1 am willing to neknowedge
that the present state of illicit im
portation and sale is most deplorable
and calls for the severest investiga
tion, and 1 hope no man or woman,
high or .low, who engages in this
meanest kind of illegal trade will
escape detection and punishment.
It is a dillicult matter, but what arc
our constituted authorities for, if
not to put down evil and wrong
doing r License the vice and you
raise tip a host of evils which the
authorities will iind it btill more
dillicult to deal with, while the
moral evil which will be wrought
will be incalculable. Such a step
would result in greatest injury to
both employer and laborer. Our
plantations would be among the
greatest sufferers. Those engaged
in the trallic would use every means
in their power to awaken tho appe
tite for, when once created, they are
sure of their victim and his wages.
The Chinese who become so early
addicted to the use of opium would
speedily show the evil effects of this
new departure but all nationalities
would sulfer as well m a greater or
less degree. It can scarcely
lie possible that Japan, which has
so rigorously prohibited opium with
in its own borders, would view with
satisfaction, this new temptalition
laid in the way of the laborers of
that nationality who have come here.
As understand it, it is designed by
the provisions of this bill to prohibit
the sa)o of opium to native born Ha
waiians. With opium otherwise
free in the country, is it possible
that it could be kept from any one
nationality and especially ono which
could be tempted so easily to its
use, as-past history has shown usV
One mi-lit as well apply flro to
combustible material, and not ex
pect a conflngiation. The passage
of such a bill would be a retrogres
sive, a fatal step for public minds in
Ibis kingdom. I cannot see how
men of wisdom, thoughtful fore
sight and love for humanity can for
a moment entertain such an idea.
It will place an obstaclo in tho way
of tho moral, intellectual and
spiritual elevation of the mass of
the inhabitants of theso Islands,
which will with dillleulty be over
come, Ciod grunt that this calamity
may ho averted ! V wnto at a tlis
tniwin ntnl lumftf nm vinf. itu'nrn ivtiof
process this bill has made but pray
most fervently that it may suffer the
defeat it deserves, and if this be not
the case, that His Majesty will bo
graciously pleased to veto it, when
it comes before him.

evil effects of op'um, 1 would

Rep. Wight, on suspension of the
rules, read a petition with one hun
dred and fifty-one signatures, from
North and South Kohala, praying
that Dr. L. S. Thompson, Govern
ment physician, be removed, and
Dr. Bond appointed in his place,
foi the reasons; that he docs not
practice his profession, as he is dis
pised by the people, that he is
planting sugar and practising law,
instead of attending to his work.
The lion, member stated that he
was aware that the matter of ap
pointing and dismissing physicians
was in the province of the Board of
Health. Two years ago a similar
petition was sent in but .no notice
was taken of it. Rep. Ilayselden
had said that Dr. Bond had gone
round and got the petition up.
Rep. Ilayselden, in making such a
statement was perfectly ignorant, as
Dr. Bond was a different man to
Hep. Ilayselden said he had not
staled that Dr. Bond took the peti
tion round. He said it was reported
that he had.
Rep. Wight said he did not want
to misstate nuything, probably it
was as Rep. Ilayselden said.
Rep. Ilayselden said the papers
had reported him correctly. A pe
tition was started and iu favor of Dr.
Bond, and also one against Dr.
On motion of Rep. Kalua the pe
tition was referred to the Sanitary

On motion of Mr. Castle the rules
were suspended and the bill read a
second time by its title.
Noble Kapcna moved the bill be
referred to the Printing Committee.
Rep. Thurston said he did not
object to its being printed, it was
very long and technical.
Rep. Ilayselden favored the re
ferring to the Printing Committee.
He hardly thought the bill necessary
as the law for coperations covered
Tho bill was referred to the Print
ing Committee and will then go to a
special committee. ,
Rep. Castle presented the follow

Rep. Ilayselden read a first time
an act to amend article Gil, of the

The lion, member said this was a
new item nnd one that was neces
sary. He did not know out of what
appropriation the telephones on Ha
waii were paid for. They came to
1)00 a year on that island alone,
and this item would cover the ex
pense for telephones not only on
that island but on the other islands.
The sheriff on each island ought to
make a regular ti ip to see how his
deputies were getting along. The
cxpenso incurred would come out of
this new item.
Rep. Aholo said that if there was
some report as to how much it would
cost for telephones it would be a
guide as to how much to insert. A
report ought to be made iu this
Rep. Kaunamano said that if they
went into telephones it would en
courage laziness. The police will
want to servo summons by tele
phones. If there was some esti

there was any call for the appro
