Ui!). Cnstlu niovuil to insert in
section 2 at the end of clause 1 the
following: "Freight on bananas
shall not exceed llfty-onc cents a
bunch." The question was whether
it was a proper thing for them to
try and regulate the rales of freight
and passage. It hail always been
done. Now, the house wants to iix
u rate Hint will help the small pro
ducers. If they charged tho same
rate for bananas as for sugar, the
company would get less than ten
cents a bunch. It is a class of
freight that must go by steamers.
He had talked with a banana raiser,
who said he had given up the busi
ness because the seventy-five cents
charged on each bunch ato up nil
the prolits. In view of the facts
which wcic self-evident, ho asked
the members to leversc their votes.
Rep. Kaunatnano said he had not
changed his vote, as he did not
vote at all on Friday. Many years
ago, when Captain l'aty was in
charge of the Comet, he (the
speaker) was in the banana busi
ness, lie sold to the middle man,
and did not tiotible whether it paid
or not. The banana business was a
bad omen. A ripe bunch was a bad
omen. Bananas are too perishable;
they will not stand shipment. The
distance between San Francisco and
here is too great for them to keep.
If a man was one-cyciL, a hunch
back or carried a bunch of bananas,
he would never be successful. He
leinembcrcd oil one occasion in
Court seeing Mr. Castle get quite
warm because he was charged with
making an exorbitant fee. But Mr.
Castle said it was his business. This
matter was one for the company to
settle with the banana raisers.
The motion to fix the freight at
51 cents was thei) put and lost by
the following vote :
Ayes Nobles Bishop, Dominis,
Clcghorn, Dowsett, Bush and Knae;
Reps. Keau, Lilikalani, Kauhi,
Amara, Brown, Wight, Kauhane,
Castle, Dickey, Thurston, 1'aehaole
and Dole 18.
Noes Ministers Gibson, Crcigh
ton and Dare ; Nobles Wilder, Kui
lielani, Macfatlane anel S. Parker;
Reps. Hayselden, Kaulia, Kaulu
kou, Pallia, Ivaunamano, Nahinu,
Aholo, Kaukau", Richardson, Kaai,
Kauai and 1'alohau 19.
Rep. Hayselden moved the sec
tion pass as amended.
Noble Clegliom moved to amend
by inserting "that the rate shall not
exceed 55 cents each bunch." Car
ried. At 12 o'clock the house took a
recess to 1 :550.
The house reassembled at 1 :45.
Rep. Thurston moved a recon
sideration of the vote taken before
recess, fixing the freight on bananas
at 55 cents.
Rep. Kaulukou said a great deal
of time had been spent discussing
this matter, for the purpose of kill
ing time and preventing the LoanBill
being taken up. The subsidy given
to the Oceanic Company had been
well spent, as the steamers had
brought a large number of tourists
who had spent considerable money
in the city.
Rep. Thurston moved the previous
The motion was put, and on a
rising vote, ended in a tie. The
President gave his casting vote in
tavor of the motion.
On the motion to consider being
put, it was carried "on a rising vote
of 18 to 1(5.
Rep. Brown said he was in favor
of the amendment fixing the freight
on bananas at 55 cents a bunch. It
was about the only business the
native Hawaiian could engage in
without calling on people for a loan
to assist in cultivation. One draw
back to the cultivation was the
freight being fixed at 75 cents, which
was too much. The house should
show they were trying to do some
thing for native Hawaiians.
Rep. Kaulukou moved the amend
ment be indefinitely postponed. All
this talk about doing something for
native -Hawaiians did not extend
beyond the lips of those who said it.
It did not come from their hearts.
Some of these banana misers were
related to him, but that did not
have any influence. With regard to
helping Mr. Spreckels, that gentle
man had done a great deal for this

Third reading of an act to amend
sections 1 nnd C of chapter 31 of
the Session Laws of 1884, relating
to street railroads.
Rep, Dole moved as nn amend
ment tho following new section:
"Section 4. Whereas it appears
that chapter 34 of the laws of 1881
has expired by its own terms, tho
said chapter as amended by this act
is hereby ro-enacted."
Tho amendment passed.
I"oblo Bishop moved ns nn amend
ment thai the eighth division of
section 0 of the law of 1881 bo
restored to tho bill. It reads as
follows: ''Eighthly, the Minister of
the Intctior, by and with the con
sent of the King in 1'ilvy Council,
when tho narrowness of the street
or road requires it, shall compel the
corporation to widen the street or
road at its own expense for obtain
ing sufficient room for tho track, so
that it shall not interfere with the
ordinary Use of the street or road."
The honorable Noble said the bill
provided for the track being laid in
the middle of the street : that was
the proper place. Vehicles running
on cither side would he all right.
There are some of the streets men
tioned that are not wide enotight to
accommodate the public. These
franchises arc for a long time and
they should ho carefully considered.
If the bill was passed and woik
commenced they could not take it
back. The disposition of those in
and out of tho Government was
favorable to street railroads. Nuu
anu street above the second bridge
was too narrow; the same with J mid
street, and the road to Walkiki after
leaving King street. It should be
in the power of some one to say
which streets were wide enough. He
hoped the eighth division would be
The amendment was carried by a
vote of 19 to M.
Rep. Kaulukou said that with this
amendment insetted there was no
use in passing the section ; therefore,
he moved the bill bo indefinitely
Rep. Thurston moved to recon
sider the vote. Agreed to.
Rep. Thurston said the street rail
road would he a very valuable thing
to the city.
Rep. Keau said he did not believe
in street railroads. lie was inter
ested in the hack business, and the
street railroad means ruination to
that business. lie was in favor of
Rep. Hayselden said that section
gave the Minister of the Interior all
the power that was necessary. There
was no street mentioned that was
too narrow. He did not think the
amendment necessary, as it would
destroy the value of the franchise.
Section 1G says the track shall not
exceed in width five feet within the
rails. The cars would not project
over a foot, which would make
seven feet. lie did not think there
was a road in Honolulu less than
forty feet in width.
Noble Bishop said some were not
even thirty feet.
Rep. Hayselden said .if even they
were only thirty that would leave
twenty-three feet. That was plenty
wide enough for three teams.
Minister Dare said that rapid and
cheap transpottation had proved a
blessing in every town and hamlet
where it had been introduced. It
would be an absolute blessing if
Honolulu could be relieved of the
hack tax. He believed that the
building and operating of a street
railroad would prove of untold ad
vantage to Honolulu. He did not
believe capitalists could be induced
to invest in a street railroad with
such an amendment attached to the
franchise as that proposed. He op
posed it as it would practically
kill the bill.
Noble Bishop said he did not in
troduce it with any intention of kill
ing the bill. A street railroad would
be a good tiling, but the general
public had rights superior to any
corporation. The trouble with this
bill was that it covered so much of
the city and suburbs. In San Fran
cisco a franchise covered a single
Rep. Kaulukou said that the lion.
Noble Bishop stuck to the old way
of traveling and did not want to see
any new improvements. .He had got
into a set way of living. The hack
men chargo pretty near what they
like. It costs 82 to Kapiolani Park,
but with a street lailroad the fare
would be ten cents. t If they had a
street railroad it would bring the
carriage builders' price down, and a
carriage now costing 250 could be
obtained for $150. The 'disposition
seemed to be to tie up the hands of
these people and hamper them with
conditions. If they want to go on in
the old way and continue to be rob
bed by the hack drivers, then let
this amendment be passed. Let
them do away with steamers and go
back to canoes. How would the
linn. Noble like that,
Noble Bishop said ho would not
Reps. Katinnmano and Kaulmno

Rep. Brown moved tho title be

and to amend sections 1, G and SI
of that Act and to add a new sec
tion." Noble Bush moved tho whole

Minister Dare mpved a now sec

the word "thirty" read "twenty."
Noble Bush moved that after the
words "at the rate of" bo inserted'

Rep. Brown moved to strike out

The section then passed as

commission shall not be allowed for
any bonds substituted for bonds
issued under the Act entitled "An
Act to authorize a national loan and
to define to what uses such loan
shall be devoted," appioved the
5th day of August, A. D. 1882.
Noble Clegliom moved to insert
after tho words "United States" the
words, "or its equivalent," and to
strike out the remainder of the sec
tion from that point.
Minister Gibson moved the
section be amended by strik
ing out from the word "provided"
to the end.
Rep. Dole favored the Hon. Mr.
Clughorn's amendment, but opposed
that offered by His Excellency Mr.
Gibson, as it struck out the respect
able part of the section. It was an
entirely new thing for this Govern
ment to pay a commission for nego
tiating bonds, and also to have
financial agents. They had better
enact a law as they want it, for in
six months there might be a change
of Cabinet. As an illustration, the
Ministers, had changed their miudB
twice about a loan. There was no
need of their paying 100,000 for
the negotiation of a loan of 82,000,
000. They should not borrow
11101103' f tuey I'd t0 pay a commis
sion. They had heard that a great
deal of money had been sent out of
the country for investment. About
8700,000 of this loan would be taken
up by people of small means. The
amount of confidence in the Govern
ment might affect the rapidity with
which this loan would be taken up.
Theie is money here in Honolulu.
The bill provides for expenditures
less tli'an 81,000,000. They did
not want to see any money thrown
into the hands of favorites. He ex
pected the Minister of Finance to
negotiate loans ; that is what he is
paid for. Theie was no reason for
their paying out one per cent for
Noble Cleghorn said that New
South Wales negotiated a large loan
at 3J per cent and sold their bonds
at 9G and 97. The 5 per cent bonds
of New Zealand are quoted at 103
and the 4 per cent at 99. He
thought if they paid G per cent, they
certainly should not pay any com
misssion. It looked like a source of
weakness instead of strength for
such a thing. When ,the Govern
ment shows its measures there will
be no difficulty. In putting in this
5 per cent commission, it is for
some one to get hold of it.
His Excellency Mr. Gibson said
that if these bonds were placed in
the domestic maiket there would
not be need of any commission.
But that may not bo the case, and
so there should be some provision
for a commission at the discretion of
the -Minister of Finance to borrow
in a foreign market. After a lapse
of, two or tluee months, if the loan
was taken up readily, tlicro would
be no need to borrow f i om abroad.
He would present the following
