THE RIGHTS OF COMMITTEES.
We publish, in this issue, Hon.
Mr. Dicker's reply to a brief article
which appeared in yesterday's issue
of this paper, and we do so most
cheerfully, our columns being
always open to any side of every
question, whether the views ex
pressed be in accordance with our
own or not. We commend the
course adopted by Mr. Dickey in
cominjr straight to the paper from
which he dissented, instead of fol
lowing the too common practice
here of running to some other
paper. We make special mention
of this, because it is u point on
which the public apparently need
information. Let it bo clearly
understood that we keep an open
column for the expression of out
side opinion, and precedence is
always given to correspondents who
feel themselves aggiicved by any
thing we may have slid.
Uow to return to the subject
matter of Mr. Dickey's communica
tion, we fully agree with him that
" the books of the Government are
open to the inspection of the Legis
lature," and that the Finance Com
mittee represents the Legislative
body. But our point is this, that
the mere appointment of the com
mittee does not srive it the right to
inspect, much less any individual
member thereof. A committee
should visit the departments of gov
ernment, armed with the proper
documentary authority of the
House, and without this authority
the chief of a department is not
supposed to know the committee.
At least, this is how such matters
are regulated in, other countries,
and it seems to us the proper
method. If Mr. Dickey, a member
of the Finance Committee, is acting
for the committee, and in that
capacity desires access to the
Custom House, he should be pro
vided with the proper credentials,
and on production thereof the
customs authorities are bound to
admit him. Mr. Dickey can claim
the proper documentary authority,
as a right, from the President of
the Assembly, according to British
usage. If this be refused, or if,
being given, it be ignored at the
Custom House, or any other depart
ment where there arc public ac
counts to examine, Mr. Dickey has
an undoubted right to consider him
self and the Assembly wronged and
insulted ; and in either case he will
find the Bulletin prepared to stand
by him to the last. We simply
want to see public affairs conducted
on regular and orderly principles.
a swindle, but this is to bo a true
test of speed.
The young men, and a few old
men also, arc blind to tho warnings
of their wiser brethren who put littlo
faith in anything in tho shape of.n
race at Kapiolnni Park. It is not
our intention to intimate that there
never was a fair race on the race
track. Par be it from us to
cieate any suck impression. Hut,
we unhesitatingly say, that there
has been, during tho past live
or 9lx years, an unmitigated lot of
swindling, in trotting races particu
larly. Professional drivers from the
Coast are invariably at the bottom
of these swindles. They give the
secret away to one or two about
town. It, is considered policy on
their part to do so. Having accom
plished their object, and finding
that the scope of game is limited,
they quit. Another member of the
same family or ring conies down
three months afterwards, and re
opens tho game with similar results.
And so the practice will go on as
long as professional drivers from the
Coast arc allowed 'to take part in our
sports at Kapiolnni Park.
MORE POLICE PROTECTION NEEDED.
Considering the mixed nature of
its population and the limited
amount ot police restraint, Hono
lulu is a remarkably well behaved
town. With a population composed
of so many nationalities, and with
so large a proportion of the class to
which it i usual to look for cri
minal character, ami yet so few-
police and so little police protection
outside of the city pr.oper, it is
really surprising that there is so
small a percentage of crime. But
what guarantee have we that the
present order . and security will
continue indefinitely? Or what
good reason have we for believing
that the future will be no worse
than the past? None whatever.
Indeed, there is danger of the dull
times which have commenced, but
have by no means reached their
limit, bringiug in their trail petty
crimes, the existence of which
begets a feeling of general uneasi
ness and insecurity. To guard
against a contingency of this kind,
which is not at all improbable, the
police force needs strengthening.
What protection have the outskirts
of the town at the present time? A
very little indeed. The people are
simply left to protect themselves.
It is unjust to blame the heads of
the department for not furnishing
what they have not the means to
furnish. , But the Legislature is
justly censurable if it fails to pro
vide the necessary means, while
freely voting the hard-earned money
of the people for gewgaws and gim-cracks.
107TII DAY. CONTINL'KU.
In yesterday's issue there ap
peared a short letter from Mr. P.
A. Brouse, the driver of Redwood in
the race of Saturday last, offering
any man in tho kingdom to take his
choice of the two animals, Clemen
tina or Redwood, and he, Mr. B.,
will take the remaining animal, and
trot for 8250 a side. This is a bold
challenge and Mr. Brouse must havo
considerable confidence in himself
as u driver to make such an offer.
Such an offer certainly does not
tend to increase the public interest
in trotting matt-hen at Kapiolnni
Park. It detracts from true sport,
to think that it is not the f rotting
qualifications of tho hor&o upon which
a speculator bets his money, but
upon the unknown person who
drives. Men, who are professional
drivers, come down from California,
arid have things all their own way.
They land with nothing, and go
away with a pile. Win or lose, they
make money. A race is announced
to take place at tiro Pork between
Mime animals that can bent 2ni.
lOsec., and every young man who isfao
inclined, rushes off to see what he con
siders a square race, He knows it to
be a square deal, because. Tom so-tind-so"

House resolved into committee of

Consideration of the Appropriation
Uep. Dickey moved the total,
3,822,970.80, be inserted in the
first paragraph. Cjirried.
House "resumed, and the com
mittee's report was adopted.
The bill passed to engrossment,
and was appointed to be read a third
time on Monday.
Pep. Richardson said lie thought
the Ministers had some report to
present on the Electric Light bill.
Minister Gibson said he did not
understand the Ministers had to
make a report. When the bill was
up the Ministers would be prepared
to speak oh it.
Minister Dare said the House had
asked whether there was any legal
bar in the way to prevent the Gov
ernment entering into another con
tract to light the streets by elect li
city while there was already a con
tract. His Excellency then traced
the contracts for lighting the stteets
f loin 1880. The last contract was
entered into with Mr. lfishbourne
on March 13th of this year. It was
given to the contractor withdut for
mality of submission to the Privy
Council. He considered the con
tract was voidable, and would not
pievent the Minister of the Interior
entering into another contract.
Hep. Brown -aid the submitting
of the bill to the Privy Council was
not requited. All that was neces
sary was reference to Cabinet Coun
cil.' Pep. lvalua said if the contiaet
was made under the Appropriation
Bill, the Minister had no right to
make contracts beyond the biennial
period. He did not think the con
tract wai binding.
Pep. Baker said he had intro
duced the bill, and he now asked
leave to withdraw it.
Minister Dare moved that he be
permitted to do so.
Noble Bush proposed to throw the
bill out altogether.
Bei). Thurston said that Mr.
Wundenbcrg had told him that if
the Eleetrict Light bill was to pass
he would not stand in the way with
the present contract. He (the
speaker) favored the Government
taking the service, as it could be got
cheaper than from private parties.
The honorable member (Mr. Baker)
could not withdraw the bill before
the house, as it was a substitute
bill, submitted by a committee, and
the property of the house.
Minister Gibson said the matter
had arrived at that state when he
could speak distinctly. The supply
of water and light are the two most
important needs of a city, whether
large or small. In the supply of
water the Government had taken
charge of it for the benefit of the
people, and it had gradually im
proved .until now it stood third as a
source of revenue. The Water
Works were graduully increasing in
value, and he felt satislled that be
fore long the revenue would not fall
short of Sf)0,000. The lighting of
the city and houses was becoming a
matter of importance. All knew the
risk and danger of kerosene lamps
in our houses, h,vcry housekeeper
would be delighted to find that in
stead of filling lamps, trimming
wicks and running risk of accidents,
all they would have to do would be
to strike a match and at once gef a
beautiful light, far in advance of
auything they had had before. The
need is pressing. Men of enter
prise were coming forward and
pressing the Government. The Gov
ernment appreciated the valuu of
the housekeeper having light as well
as water, lie was of opinion that
there was no need of any additional
legislation to provide tho city with
electricity. The Government might
have to ask the Legislature for
means to carry it out. Ho thought
under the circumstances the bill was
hardly called for, and moved it he
laid upon the tabic.
The bill was laid on the tabic.
Pep. Dickey rose to a question of
privilege. On Friday, during the
debate on tho Electric bill, he used
the following words: "The bill
looked like a job." He asked to
withdraw that btatement, as upon
examination he found it to be the

Wight, Nalialc, Nahinu, Ktilun,
Aholo, Ktuiknti, Richardson, Kiwi,

Rep. Richardson presented tho re
port of the special committee on the
bill to amend section 2, chapter 40
of the nit approved 25th September,
1870, relating to the acknowledge
ment of labor contracts, offering a
substitute bill for the consideration
of the Assembly.
Pep. Brown moved the report be

Rep. Aholo said this was a report
by part of the committee. There
was a report ly the other members
of the committee, which he moved
should be read.
Rep. Kaulukou moved that while
the report referred to was being
hunted up, that the house take up
the bill presented by him, to amend
section 5, chapter 8G of the- penal
The same member moved the bill
Rep. Thurston said lie regretted
that the honorable member for Ililo
had taken this step. It was a step
backwards in the legislation relating
to elections. It, is a well known
fact that the moral tone of elections
has been downward, and last elec
tion was the worst ever held in this
respect. The machinery for hold
ing elections is simply outrageous
in that it allows candidates the
power of appointing Inspectors of
Election. What would be thought
of a law that would permit one dif
the parties in a law suit the selection
of the jury and compel the other
party to abide by the decision of
such jury. At tho election, at
which he was himself elected, these
abuses were very conspicuous. The
J udge was Kupihea. The Tax As
sessor was Kupihea. The lax Col
lector was Nakaleka. Kupihea and
Nakaleka were both candidates for
election. Kupihea appointed as his
Hubstitutcs, the deputy judge and
an active runner, and Nakaleka
appointed his clerk.. One member
of the board attended to putting
the ballots in the box, one kept two
lists of tho voters, showing who
they voted for, and the third hud
charge of a deck of cards cut into
quarters and numbered from one
upwards. Each voter who voted
the Government ticket received one
of these checks which upon pre
sentation at a house across the way
served the double pvrposc of show
ing how the ballot was going and
entitling the holder to be filled up
with pig and poi.
Minister Dare said that when lie
signed tho report of this committee,
ho did not think he was committing
u crime. He referred to the deci
sion of the Supreme Gourt in tho
Kckoa case. Ho had consulted
many persons about tho matter,
and the general opinion was that
tho word "absence" in the English
version, ought to be struck out.
Rep. Thurston would ask the
Attorney-General if ho considered
it fair, honest or decent for a can
didate or candidates for election to
have the appointment of the In
spectors of Election.
Minister Dare did not think it
fair, und no caudidato who was
gentleman would bo guilty of the
Rep. Thurston said that was pre
cisely what was done in 20 out of
the 28 districts of this kingdom tit
last election. Tho Attorney-General's
answer showed that in signing
this report, he knew nothing about
what it meant, and if he had not
what might result in criminal acts
by others. The pnssing of this bill
would result in the utter degrada
tion of this countiy in its election
affairs. If the Attorney-General
assisted in killing a man, it was all
the same to the victim whether that
assistance was rendered designedly
or in ignorance.
Rep. Kaulukou said the law as it
stands provides for the punishment
ot olllciids engaging in corrupt prac
tices, and concluded his remarks by
moving the previous question, which
Rep. Thurston moved the ayes

ifep. Thurston asked if the motion
was in order. The House had already
decided to take up the bill section
Rep. Aholo thought the question
bcfoie the bouse was, which bill to
The President ruled that the bill
before the house was the one decid
ed to be considered section by sec
tion. Rep. Kalukou said the considera
tion of the bill section by section
was in order.
Section 1 was then read by the
The section provides for a read
justment of the leprcsenlation, as
recommended by the committee.
Rep. llayseldon moved the inde
finite postponement of the section.
Rep. Dickey said it was dillicult
to understand lion, members could
vote for the indefinite postpone
ment of the section without violating
their oath. Members are under oath
to preserve the constitution intact,
and ' the constitution prescribes a
re-adjustment of the representation,
from time to time according to the
census. It is the duty of members
under the present circumstances to
pass a law regulating the
Constitution, as the report
of the committee plainly
shows the representation lo be now
very irregular. The present con
dition of tilings is a standing de
fiance of the constitution.
Minister Gibson quoted "The let
ter killeth, but the spirit givetli
life," and said that the recommen
dation of the committee was based
on the letter of the Constitution,
but it did not show that it was con
sistent with the spirit. The framers
of the Constitution did not contem
plate the large increase of non-voting
population which has taken place
in many districts. If we act strict
ly 'by the letter of the Constitution,
we may find a district with 3,000 in
habitants, and not one voter. He
was not saying that the foreign po
pulation should npt be represented,
lie thougot the time had not come
for the passage of the'nieasure, and
he seconded the motion.
Rep. Dickey said that it is true
some difference exists as regards the
voting population. The consti
tution specifies population, not
voters. The Minister may twist the
constitution round to suit his argu
ment, but ho cannot twist numbers
round to show that Makawao with
025 voters and Kannapali with 170
voters, arc represented in accord
ance with either the spirit or the
letter of the constitution.
Rep. Kaulukou did not agree with
the remarks of the honorable mem
ber for Makawao regarding the obli
gation of members under their oaths,
lie was of opinion that Makawao
ought to have two members, and he
would support an amendment to
give Makawao two members, Ko
liala two, and Honolulu might well
havo more representatives. He
would like to amend to the law, but
the member for Makawao wanted the
house to swallow section 1 whole.
There were some good provisions in
the bill, and he would like to elimi
nate its bad features' but he could
not support the boction as it reads.
The motion for indefinite post
ponement was put and carried.
Rep. Kaulukou moved tho recon
sideration of tho vote, Lost.
