ElGHTT-h'IN'l tl DAY. CONTINUED.
Monday, August 80th.
Tito Chairman said there was
nothing further in the Appropriation
Bill, but those items which had
been referred to committees.
Hep. Kc.iu moved I ho committee
take up the consideration of the two
items, balance due the ebtatc of Jas.
G. llnysclden for contract work on
bridges til Waimea and Wailttu,
The mti jot it) and minority reports
of the select committee on the two
items were then read.
Noble Walker moved that the re
port of the majority of the commit
tee be adopted, lie was very fami
liar with the matter. The contract
was made with the Government for
building the bridges for a certain
bum. One-third to be paid after
the work commenced, one-third
when certain work was completed,
and the balance on completion of
the woik when approved by the
Government. Mr. llnysclden re
ceived a certain amount in cash, and
was to icceive a ccit.vin amount in I!
percent bonds, on condition that he
iirrrnngcd with the Pacific Bridge
Company to take the bonds. When
the work went on the Government
paid oue-thitd, but declined to give
any bonds at that time, as they were
not issuing bonds. The late Minis
ter of Interior ptoposed to pay the
balance from road money. As
there was not sullicient money the
estate of J. G. Haysclden had to
borrow money at 1) percent to pay
the Pacific Bridge Company. Mr.
Sterling was sent down, and on his
order the money was paid as far as
the appropriation would go. The
estate chaiged the Government at
the .same rate of interest, 1) peicent.
Rep. Dole said lie was a member
of the minority commitcc. With re
gard to the Waimea bridge, that
item ought to be thrown out, as
there was everything to show it was
not built according to contract. As
a consequence, when the first freshet
came, pai t of the bridge was washed
away. The least the house could do
was to refuse to pass this item. The
Wailua bridge cost 817,000 and
ought not to have been washed"
away. It was intended it should
have been built to stand freshets.
He was also in favor of refusing this
item, but there was more doubt
about it than the others.
Hep. Palohau said he was in favor
of the minority report, lie lived on
Kauai and told those parties they

Minister Gibson moved the in
sertion of the following item :
Kelicf of Crown Comml-
Moueis 8U,0i:t TiO
lie read the following statement
in regard lo the matter, which ho
had received from Mr. Justice Pres
ton: "Tho Crown had leased to
Whitney & Robertson, or J. W.
Robertson it Co., the premises
known as Honolulu Hale. It was
decided by the Supreme Court that
the premises in question did not be
long to the Crown, but was the
piivatc property of Kamchameha
111 and IV. Alter said Judgment
Bishop & Co., on account of cred
itors of the bankrupt estate of J. W.
Robertson & Co., sued the Crown
Commissioners for damages on ac
count of having been compelled to
vacate the premises under tho judg
ment. The case was triod beforo a
Jury and tho trustees of the bank
rupt estate of J. V. Robertson & Co.
were awarded 88,000 damages, with
costs of Court. This, with interest,
making a total of 88,700, was paid
to the creditors by Bishop & Co, on
Juno !10, 188(1, "Bishop & Co. ad
vancing the money and taking as
security the judgment lien on Crown
Commissioners, with the understand
ing that the loan exphe this Septem
ber 1, 88f). Therefore there is now
duo the S8.700 and interest on same
at i) per cent for fourteen months,
8i)13.u0: total SO.Gia.SO." The
Minister said this pioperty had been
regarded its belonging to the down
for many years, Rents hud been
collected during tho previous reign.
Under tho circumstances, he deemed
it a case whore tho Crown should bo
relieved, as there was tv mistake in
lespect to tho title of the land. Tho
money had been paid to the creditors
by Bishop & Co., and thoy expect
to bo paid by the Crown Com
missioners. Rep. Dolo said there was another
item of a similar nature to come up
to-morrow, and ho moyed the mutter
bo referred to a special committee.
Tho question was whether they
should relievo tho mistakes of the
Crown Commissioners or not.
Rep. IlaysPlden moved tho item
be inserted in tho Apprppriation
Bill as asked for. Ho had bepn to
Judge Preston and got tho figures,
and also seen the Judgment. Ho
said tho damages wero very exces
sive. Tho ronts from that property
hnd been very low nbout 8125 a
Rep. Thurston said tho item was
an improper ono; the loss w.19
entirely tho neglect of (he Crown
Commissioners. It was not going
to be nny benefit to tho people to
pass it; the only benefit would bo
for the three Crown Commissioners,
and they did not come here to
legislate for three persons.
The item passed.

Hon. J. S. Wai.kku, President
Legislative Assembly Sin : Your
committee, to whom was referred
the resolution presented by Hon. J.
W. Knlua, asking for an appropria
tion of $:i,000 for Hon. A. Poman
der, in consideration for his book,
having considered the matter beg lo
report as follows: The woik of
which Mr. Pomander is the author,
and which he has published, lo wit,
"The Polynesian Race," is a work
to which he has devoted many years
of careful study and research, and
which lias been highly commended
by competent critics at home and
abroad. It is the most learned work
ever written here and is a credit to
the author, to his adopted country
and to the Hawaiian people.
Being a philosophical and scienti
fic work, and not what is usually
called a popular book, it will be
purchased by comparatively few
people, so that it cannot be.-pecuniarily
profitable to the author, but
has cost more than he will receive
from sales for many years to come.
For the reasons above stated, the
committee recommend to the Assem
bly to appropriate 2,500 in aid of
lion. A. Fornander towards expenses
for his book.

Rep. Kaulukou moved the t-ection
pass as in the bill.
Rep. Thurston said he had til-
ready spoken on the subject. If
the bill was to pass he hoped the
bonds would be fixed as-low as 8100.
Rep. Kaulukou withdiow his mo
tion. The amendment making the deno
mination of bonds at 8100 instead
of 8500 was then put and carried.
Rep. Kalua moved the section
pass as amended.
Minister Creighton moved that
the section be amended so that the
loan be fixed at 81,000,000. The
Government had asked for the fol
lowing items: Immigration, 8350,
000; Water Works, '8200,000; sew
erage, 8100,000; street improve
ments, 8100,000; Honolulu hatbor,
8150,000; bonds due and falling
due, 8207,000. Total, 1,107,900.
Since then immigration had been
proposed at 8250(000, which was
8100,000 less. The improvements
on the Water Works were to cost
850,000, an item of which lie ap
proved. The city had been sewer
aged by tho late lire. So , by taking
off 8400,000, It would leave 707,
900. Tho Government, like busi
ness men, borrows more money than
is required. Thus 81,000,000 would
bo sullicient, and there would be
$232,100 more than the estimates
called for. Besides that, there was
the Hawaiian Postal Savings Bank,
which would bring in 8100,000 a
year, and the Japanese fund would
also bring in a largo amount. If it
was shown the loan was wanted, and
it was to be judiciously used, tho
Government could get all tho money
that was wanted. Sinco the first
81,000,000 loan, about 81,500,000
had been sept- away by Island peo-
pioanu invested m loreign securities,
and they had not got six percent.
If they borrowed from peoplo here
tho intorest is paid to them. If
borrowed from abroad the interest
goes abroad. There was not a
country that hud borrowed from
abroad but had got iuto trouble.
Ho stood up for the good of the
Hawaiian people, the dignity of the
Crown and tho general prospei ity of
tint people. If it was shown that
$2,000,000 could he spent judi
ciously he would voto for C. Sec
tion 4 Bays, "To tecall and cancel
all bonds lawfully issued under any
prior acts of tho Hawaiian Legisla
ture." Why should they recall
them ; they are out nt six percent.
Jt was optional whether the owners
would give them up or not. Under
section f) iv commission of fivo per
centum Is allowod to any person or
syndicate which may negotiato the
nxvaiaattMTtr rw.Mir.i-n-nrriii ,'iwrmiiirirnrww
bonds. Some ono here wants to
make 50,000, n nice little sum. It
was easy to borrow, but hard to pay
back. Ho asked the members lo
think a little and not vote blindly.
Rep. Castlo moved that section 1
bo indefinitely postponed. Ho
would 9ny right hero that ho was not
opposed to a loan if it was spent for
proper purposes. If they had n
Loan bill it should bo pictty well
The motion to indefinitely post
pone tho section was put and lost.
Noble Bishop said it seemed to
him that Noble Clcghoin had given
good reasons that this first section
should not be passed without amend
ment. They had been told a loan
was not wanted ; but td-day it
seemed that it was wanted. A
smaller amount would be required
for immigration and Water Works,
and leaving out other things, would
bring the amount to less.than 1,
000,000. It was never wise to bor
row more than was needed. To
borrow cai clcssly . always damages
credit, whether public or private.
More than half of the 2,000,000
would not be' wanted, without they
took up outstanding bonds. They
are out at the same rate of interest
as proposed in tills bill. He rc
fctrcd to the six percent bonds.
According lo the Finance Report
thcio was outstanding 8725,400. It
had been said they were not going
to hot row all at one time. Last
session's bill was 82,000,000. but
1,000,000 could have been obtained
in gold if there had been any ap
pearance of economy on tho part of
the Government. These extrava
gant appropriations would hurt the
Government. A 1,000,000 loan
would more than cover all the items
in the bill, and those old bonds run
ning at !) percent should be taken
up. The Japanese and the Savings
bank funds will be large. As there
would be no gain in picking up the
(5 percent bonds outside, he was in
favor of 1,000,000.
Rep. Thurston said lie had been
patiently waiting lo hear what the
Ministers were going to do.
Minister Gibson said although
authority might be asked for the
Government to raise 82,000,000 by
way of loan, yet it was quite pro
bable that for six months they would
not want more than 8300,0000 or
100,000. Neither he nor his col
leagues, or indeed any Government
would ever think of raising money
w hen it was not needed and paying
interest on it. But when the Legis
lature sanctioned expenditure for
ccitain woiks the Government
should be in a position to raise the
amount to complete them from time
to time. Interest of course would
only be payable upon the loan as it
was laised, and the money would
not be borrowed unless it was
actually required for works under
authorizaion by the Legislature.
Therefore the argument that an
authorization for a 82,000,000 loan
should be passed because the Gov
ernment might.be paying interest
upon money which could not be
used, was without any force; in
other words, although the Govern
ment had an authorization to borrow
2,000,000 it could only be raised
in sums as required to carry out the
specific appropriations by tho Leg
islature. The motions to pass the amount at
1,000,000 and 500,000 were put
and both lost.
The section passed as amended,
and reads as follows:
Section 1. The Minister of Fi
nance, with tho approval of the
King in Cabinet Council, is hereby
authorized lo issue coupon bonds of
the Hawaiian Government of a de
nomination not less thau one hun
dred dollars and in the aggregate
not exceeding two millions of dollars,
