Rep. llaysuldcn presented the
following minority report on the
Stamp Duties Aet:
Ilos. J. y. Wa'.kkk, President
Legislative Assembly Sin: The
minority of tlie special committee,
to which was referred "An Act to
amend an Aet entitled an Act re
lating to stamp ditties, approved
September 27, A. D. 187G," intro
duced by the Hon. C. II. Dickey,
member' for Mnknwno, cannot fully
agree with the recommendations of
the majority of said committee. I
agree with the amendment proposed
by the majority to section 1 of said
bill, but do not approve the recom
mendation to strike out section 2 of
Section 1 of the Act amended by
this bill provides that "there shall
be due and payable in respect of
the several deeds, documents and
instruments mentioned and specilicd
in the schedule hereunder written,
the several .sums of money for
stamp duty set forth in the said
schedule." Your committee believe
that this section is evaded to a large
extent by money lenders. Many
contracts, salts, etc., are acknow
ledged, but not stamped, and are
never stamped unless by reason of
the non-payment of the loan, or non
fulfilment of contract, etc., fore
closure becomes necessary. The
Government is thus deprived of the
just revenue due it under the Act.
Section 2 of this Act covers this de
fect and secures to the Government
the full amount of stamp duty due,
and your committee respectfully
recommends that the Act, with the
amendment proposed by the maj
ority to section 1, be passed.
Fnr.n. II. Hayselden.
The report was laid upon the table
to be considered with the majority
The reports of the majority and
minority of the Committee on Per
manent Settlements were then read.
Hep. Keau moved the bill grant
ins a permanent settlement on Hon.
WT C. Parke pass.
Rep. Hrown moved the bill be laid
upon the table. There are several
bills before the house to make per
manent settlements, and if they
pas. the Appropriation Bill will be
increased by S2o,000 the next two
years. This monej could be spent
to better advantage, and therefore
he could not vote for this bill, and
hoped it would be laid upon the
Rep. Keau, who introduced the
bill, spoke at length in Hawaiian in
favor of if without interpretation.
Rep. Palohau was not in favor of
the bill. He thought Mr. Parke
had been well paid for his services
by the Government.
Rep. Kaulukou said he was in
favor of the bill. He ahvity's
thought that Mr. Palohau and Mr.
Parke were on intimate terms, and
he was surprised at the former op
posing the bill. It was only within
a few years that the salary of the
Marshal had been anything of ac
count. Some people had an idea
the fees of the oflice amounted to a
great deal, but they did not. Any
one who knows the history of the
country would know that Mr. Parke
had been a faithful oflicer, and the
country should show some recog
nition of his .services. He has had
a large family to bring up, but had
saved money and was in comfortable
circumstances. That fact is brought
up againsthim in connection with this
bill. Hut it is a credit to a man to
bring up a family, educate them
thoroughly, and at the same time
save a little money. Mr. "Parke had
shown a good example to the young
men of Hawaii. Ho always took a
great interest in health matters.
Leave this matter to the people and
it would be found that three-fourths
of the population would bay, "Pass
the bill." The house would do no
more than what was right to pass
Rep. Lil'kalani said ho was not in
favor of any permanent settlement
bills, except that for Mrs. Emma
. Rep. Dickey was opposed to tho
bill on principle. He agreed with
the honorable member for Honolulu
that pensions should not be granted,
except in cases of disability, lie
did not believe, as stated by the
honorablo member for Hilo, that tho
people would generally approve of
this pension. The people know
better what their real needs are.
Thoy know that they liavo more
need of roads, bridges, schools,
wharves, etc., than the granting of
pensions. Mr. Paike had been a
salaried olllccr of the Government
3 1 years, and tho speaker could not
see tho propriety of giving him a
pension of s2,000 when lie was not
in need of it.
Hop. Kaunamano said that Mr.
Parko had been in tho service of tho
Government a number of years, and
had rendered specially valuable ser
vices during the disturbances in
1852. He could not see tho point
of the objection that Mr. Parko
had saved money wliilo in olllco.
That was to much tho more to his
credit. What wo want to consider
is the propriety of recognizing his
services to the country. During tho
small-pox epidemic, ho had risked
his lifo by exposing himsolf in visit
ing patients in company with tho
doctor, and exerting himself in tho
necessary measures for checking tho
the disease. It was said that no
pension should be allowed n dis
charged olllcer ; but so far as tho
public know, no reasons have ever
been given for his dismissal.
Noble Bishop said he thought
there was no man in this country had
a stronger claim for consideration of
Ills services than Mr. Parke. He
had listened with pleasure to all
that had been said in favor of Mr.
Parko, as lie had known hint well 10
years, and ho believed he was worthy
of all the commendations honorable
members had bestowed upon him.
But he believed it should bo under
stood by all who take olllco in this
country that they are not to expect any
pension or any special returns more
than they would expect in the
service of private parties. Mr.
Parke had alwa3's been a very gener
ous man, and he is not entirely free
from debt. A few years ago, he had
the good fortune to make a small
investment in a plantation that has
proved profitable. But after saying
all these things in favor of Mr.
Parke, he was sorry to have to say
that he should have to vote against
this bill on principle. He was sorry
to have to do bo. He had voted
against .similar bills in the past, but
he thought that bj- passing this bill,
the house would bo establishing a
dangerous precedent. This would
not be exactly a precedent, but it
would be used as such.
Rep. Keau moved tho ayes and
noes be taken. Carried.
The eyes and noes were called, as
For the motion to lay the bill on
the table : Bishop, Lilikalani, Kauhi,
Brown, Pallia, Wight, Kauhane,
Kalua, Castle, Dickey, Kaai, Thurs
ton, Paehaolc, Palohau 11.
Against: Gibson, Crcighton,
Dare, Cleghorn, Parker, Ilaysclden,
Keau, Baker, Amara, Knulia, Kaulu
kou, Kaunamano, Nahiuu, Knukaii,
Richardson, Kauai 10.
Rep. Kalua moved to amend the
bill by making the pension 81,200
instead of S2.000.
Rep. Kaulnkou moved to insert
Passed 18 to 14, at 81,200.
Hep. Dickey proposcd-an amend
ment to which an amendment was
made and accepted, by Minister
Dare, that "if the said llonoraole
W. C. Parke shall at any time accept
a salaried olllce under Government,
this pension shall cease and deter
The bill as amended then passed
to engrossment, and Saturday was
set for third reading.
The house next took up the second
reading of the bill to make a per
manent settlement on Thomas W.
Everett, of S2,500 per annum.
Rep. Brown moved the bill be laid
on the table. Los;.
Rep. Ilaysclden moved to amend
by inserting 81,200 instead of
Rep. Dickc' moved tho bill bo
indefinitely postponed. Mr. Everett
is in the prime of life, is doing a
good business, and is sheriff
of the Island of Maui, for
which he draws his salary, and is
less entitled to a pension than the
Hon. "W. C. Parke.
Rep. Ilaysclden said the bill pro
vides that the pension is not to be
drawn unless Mr. Everett resigns,
Rep,, Dolo said that plea was
rather transparent. If that princi
ple is accepted, the house ought to
be consistent and pass a pension for
every Government officer in the
Islands. Mr. Everett is in posses
sion of all his fasultics. He has
not resigned, does not intend to re
sign and wants no pension. The
fact of the matter is that the Minis
ters mean to dismiss Mr. Everett,
and have offered his olllce to the
honorable member for Lahaina,
(Mr. Kalua) to keep his mouth shut.
No excuses that can be made will
cover up tho true inwardness of this
Rep. Ilaysclden did not know
what was the matter with the honora
ble member for Lihue. This fore
noon, he advocated giving a pension
to every one who had been 25 years
Minister Gibson said he was al
ways glad to get Information. The
honorablo mombcr for Lihue had
given him some information. As
Minister of the Interior, he knew
nothing of the contemplated dis
missal of Mr. Everett, or of tho bar
gain proposed with Mr. Kalua, to
which the honorable member had
Rep. Dole said he had heard of
the arrangement when lie was on
the Island of Maui, and on his re
turn to Honolulu, asked the honor
able member for Lahaina (Mr.
Kalua) if the story was true, to
which he answered that It was, but
that it was the honorablo mouther
for Hilo who had made tho pioposal
Hep. Kaulukou said tho sheriffs
aro appointed by tho Governors of
tho islands, with the approval of the
Attorney-Gcncrul. Tho honorable
member for Lahaina would make n
good sheriff and if he, the speaker,
had the authority and was asked, he
certainly should recommend him for
The motion to indefinitely post
pone tho bill was put and lost.
The amendment, 81,200, pre
vailed. Hep. Diokoy moved to amend
section 2 by adding tho words,
"and if tho said Thomas W. Everett
shall at any timo accept a salaried
olllco under Government, tills pen
sion shall cease and determine"
Tho bill ns amended passed to
engrossment, and was ordorcd to.bo
read a third time on Saturday.
Second reading of "an act to pro
vide a permanent settlement for Her
Royal Highness the Princess Poo
ma'ikelani, of S!!,fl()0 per annum."
Section 2 provides that "no sums
shall be paid out of the public trcn
stuy, and no allowance made under
this act, until Her Royal Highness
may have resigned or ceased to
hold the olllce of Governess."
Rep. Brown moved to amend this
section by adding the words, "and
provided further that this sum shall
not bo paid so long as the said Prin
cess holds any other salaried olllco
under Government, directly or in
directly. Rep. Dickey moved the bill be in
definitely postponed. Her Royal
Highness, as President of the Board
of Genealogy, had drawn 8250 a
month during the last two years,
and also 1,800 a year as Governess
Hep. Dole said that ns the Royal
family could be increased by con
ferring titles, there was no limit to
this ramification in the future. They
had belter draw a line right here.
There were three .young boys at
school at San Mateo, each with the
title of Prince. If this bill was
passed, they would hear of pensions
being asked for at the next session
for these young Princess. The
public cow was drying up. The
Appropriation Bill reaches a sum
near to S4, 000, 000. His Majesty
sent in a message for retrenchment,
and it would be an insult to him to
pass such a hill, so far above the
revenue. It was ridiculous it was
insane. He had nothing whatever
to say against the Princess the
personel was not under considera
tion. She was only related to the
Royal family by marriage. Why
should she feed at the Government
crib? No reason had been given.
In a few weeks they would see poor
people going to pay their taxes, and
that money, which had been hard to
obtain, would go towaids support
ing others in wealth. The Kins;
was the servant of the people ; he
was paid a certain salary for doing
their work. Provision was also
made for the Royal family in addi
tion to the King, as follows: Her
Majesty the Queen, the Heir Appa
rent, Princess Likeltke, and Princess
Kaiulani. These included the Royal
iainily proper. They should draw
the line outside of that.
Minister Gibson said lie protested
against the language used by the
honorable member for Lihue. The
King was not a servant of the peo
ple. The King may be the father
and friend of the people, but all his
rights did not emanate from the
choice of the Legislature. He had
hereditary rights outside of this. He
was a great hereditary Chief. At that
time the choice lay between two or
three of the great Chiefs, of whom
lie was one. Prince Kalakaua was
entitled to the throne by right of
birth and by limit of choice. He
was surprised at the ignorance dis
played by the lion, member for Li
hue of the Constitution of the mon
archical institution of this country.
He should know irrespective of his
republican ideas and-political views
and inspirations, that the King was
the larger part of this Legislature.
What would all their work amount
to without the approval of the King?
This lady was created Hor Royal
Highness by letters patent, .and had
a right to -be considered with the
other members of the Royal family.
Rep. Kaulukou said lie was sorry
to see the lion, member for Lihue
show such ignorance. This lady
ranks vciy high among the Chiefs
and Chiefesscs on the island of
Kauai. Perhaps the lion, member
did not know that, but he ought to,
as he was well acquainted with that
island. However, his remaiks
would not iniiuence the House. This
lady was afllicted with hip discasos,
yet she had faithfully performed her
duties as Governess of the island of
Hawaii, and was much' respected by
all the residents on that island.
The motion to indefinitely post
pone the section was lost.
Rep. Dickoy moved to fix the
settlement at 81,500 per year. Lost.
Rep. Kaulukou moved the bill
pass to engrossment and be read a"
third time on Saturday.
Hep. Dickoy moved tho House
take a recess until 7 o'clock p. ni.
Rep. Kaulukou moved tho Houso
adjourn to 10 o'clock Thursday
The House adjourned at A :45
