Balzac, a Fiench author and nov
elist, was the subject of Mrs. Flo
rence William's lecture, at Harmon'
Hall, last evening. Balzac was
born in 1770 and died at the age of
50 years. Ho was of good family,
but in poor circumstances the great
er pai t of his life.
Mrs. Williams spoke pathetically
of his misfortunes nnd extolled his
writings. Balzac's writings have
become very popular, especially
since they have been translated into
English. Between the agc3 of 20
and 30 years Balzac was in abject
poverty, and through a vcnluro in
the publishing business he became
greatly in debt. He was a staunch
believer in the Roman Catholic faith
and a thorough aristocrat. These
two characteristics must bo known
to fully appreciate his books. The
lecturer gave an interesting synop
sis of tho principal characters in
Balzac's novels, speaking of llicni
as being admirably true to life. The
"Countiy Doctor'"' is tho title of one
of Balzac's most popular books. On
its first appearance it fell flat, and
it is only of late that that it has
come into prominence. During his
last year or two he achieved fame
nnd fortune, and after six months
of wedded happiness he was found
dead in his library.
There was a large gathering this
morning in the Gymnasium Hall of
the Knmehamcha School to witness
the first public exhibition of the
methods and success of the first
year's instruction. II. R. H. Prin

Waterhouse, Hon. W. II. Rice, lion.
Francis Gay, and other members of
Legislature ; Row C. M. Hyde and
C. M. Cooke, Esq., of the Trustees ;
Rev. S. F. Bishop, and many ladies
and gentlemen interested in the wel
fare of the Ilawaiiaus, and the ex
ceptional educational advantages
aflorded by Hon. Mrs. Pauahi
Bishop's noble cquest; so that pack
ed fully one halt the largo hall was
with a large and interested audience.
The scholars weic seated at the
fuithcr end of tho hall, desks enough
having been removed to (give ample
space for recitations by the various
divisions. Thcie was no attempt at
a show peifoimance; but a fair
presentation was given of the ouli
nary drill of the school, in language
Miss Dressier who has had charge
of the first division, of younger
boys, showed what they could do in
writing simple English sentences,
and in the analysis of number.
Miss Drcsler has also had charge of
the singing, and tho perfect time
kept by the scholars, and the accur
acy and vivacity of the singing show
that she has been remarkably suc
cessful in this important depaitment.
Miss Reamers class in Biblo recita
tions, writing from dictation, and
knowledge of the fundamental prin
ciples of Arithmetic, showed that
thoroughness of training in the
rudiments, which is essential to any
truly successful work. Mr. Olcson's
class tho older boj's, in the rapidity
and accuracy of their arithmetical
work, and 'the variety and correct
ness of the English sentences writ
ten on the blackboard, showed the
success with which he has drilled
3'oung Ilnwaiinns into grammatical
familiarity with tho construction of
English. Mr. Terry, tho Superin
tendent of the Work Shops, has
shown a genius for his special de
partment of instruction, inventing
the methods and system of a scien
tific and progressive manual training
in carpentry. Mr. Oleson, who has
taken charge of the printing, dis
played specimens of typography,
clas-work, not job-work, done by
tho boys, which argur well for thoir
future success in life if ever thoy
choose the printer's craft as their
occupation in life. Tho sowing, dono
under supervision of the lady
tcachors, mainly by the smaller boys
was remarkably excellent; some
specimens of button-holes wcio

against tho Government. Tho bill
was referred to tho Judiciary Com
mittee for certain revisions.
On motion the bill relating to
Chinese permits was taken fiom the
table aud read a second lime, sec
tion by section.
The Minister of Foicign Affairs
moved to change the dale from Oct.

Rep. Brown' spoke in favor of the
amendment recommended by tho
committee to extend the time to July

selves of coming back and assume
all tho rights of living hero that they
The amendment of the committee
was adopted, making the time July
Section 2 was read. This limits
the time of returning on a permit to
Rep. C. Brown spoke against the
piovislons of this section, as it
would in some cases work injury to
Chinese merchants who have blanch
houses in China, and whoso business
calls them to China. If fiom any
cause they could not return within
the year, they would bo forever
barred. Now, this class contribute
laigely towards the revenue of this
country, and they should have some
consideration. He therefore moved
that this section be referred to a se
The Attorney-General said ho
thought that one year was ample
for this class of merchants to be
away, and if we arc to make any
distinction between merchants and
laborers, when a passport is applied
for, no matter by whom, be he cook
or clodhopper, he will swear that ho
is a merchant.
Noble Foster said he came into
the House with tho intention of of
'fering an amendment, making it'six
months, but as the House was inclin
ed to extend the time ho would not
introduce the amendment, but would
support tho section as in the bill.
Other people pay as much taxes as
Chinamen, and they should consider
themselves lucky to be allowed to
live in the country at all.
Noble Young thought that an in
justice could be done this class of
people by limiting the time too
closely for their return, and he of
fered an amendment, that the Min
ister of Foreign Affairs may extend
the time in certain cases should he
deem it necessary. We are bound
to treat a Chinaman with some res
pect. Noblo Widemann agreed with No
ble Young, and thought it was the
first time during the session that
such was the case. He offered the
following amendment: "Provided
that the Minister of Foreign Affairs
by and with the consent of the Cab
inet, may, in his discretion, ex
tend the timo herein stipulated."
He said that all foreign born here
should bo. thankful that- they aic al
lowed to lemain, and no doubt, Chi
namen think they aro as privileged
as other classes. If a law can be
passed against Chinese mci chants
leaving the country for more than
one year, then there is no leasun
why a similar law cannot bo passed
to prohibit any class of people fiom
leaving the country for more than a
year. Lot us be just if nothing
Rep. C. Brown said that the sec
ond greatest industry of the king
dom is in the hands of Chinese.
Many aic married to Hawaiians, and
if this law passes it will produce
many hardships. We must be just
to those here, and if wo want to
shut tho door to fuithcr immigiation
wo may do so.
Minister Thuiston agiccd with the
last speaker, that wo must- be just,
but who is to determine where the
justice terminates. Ho would offer
tho following amendment: 'Provid
ed however, that tho Minister of
Foreign Affairs shall be authorized
with the consent of tho Cabinet in
exceptional cases to grant a further
permit to any Chinaman tho term of
whoso permit has expiied."
Noblo Widemann said ho should
support a measure that would allow
a Chinaman merchant to come and
go as ho pleases, the same as any
other person domiciled in tho king
dom. Noble Baldwin had signed tho re
port without looking at this section
and was sorry for it, as ho favoicd
a law that merchants, teachers,
ministers, etc., should bo allowed u
reasonable timo in which to return,
and that tho time should not bo less
than two years. Ho said tho other
amendments gave the Ministers too
much power. They could refuso to
extend tho timo should thoy feel
so disposed,or should they havo any
personal feelings in tho matter. Ho
therefore moved to refer this section
to a select committee of five
Rep. Nnkalcka spoke in fuvor of
indefinitely postponing the bill. He
thought it unconstitutional as it
savoicd of class legislation. If tho
law applied to all classes of foreign
ers then ho would suppoit it.
Rep Knmnuoha spoko in favor of
referring tho bill to the select com
mittee to whom the petition from
tho Anti-Asiatic Union was referred.
Minister Thurston said that the
law did not apply to tho class that
Noble Baldwin referred to, as they
can, under the law, come in now.
Ho thought that anti-Chinese legis
lature must bo made for self-protection.
It has been done in other
countries and must bo dono here,
or the country will bo swamped with
Asiatic hordes; unless we have a
statute that is binding, it will be tho
same as in California. They have
been legislating there for 3 or -1
years, and it is generally known
that a Chinaman will find a loop
hole in tho law and take advanlago
of it, so we must leave no loop hole,
but make tho law as lestiictivc as it
is possible to make it for our own
protection. Ho referred to tho
Stiaits Scttlemcnts,vhcrc the China
men have monopolised all classes of
labor, both skilled and unskilled,
and ho predicted the same condition
for this countiy if no restriction
laws arc enacted.
Minister Ashford said this was
not a restrictive measure, but sim
ply ono limiting the time in which
permits shall bo used. Tho law
now allows 300 Chinamen to enter
the kingdom each quaiter, and tho
limit restriction to permits may bo
of use to nsceitain how many are out
and how many new immigrants may
be allowed to enter tho kingdom
under this law.
Tho amendment of Noble Wide
mann was carried.
Section 3 was then read and pass
ed as in the bill.
The title and enacting clause
Minister Ashford offered an
amendment to the title, to read "An
Act to limit the time in which Chi
nese permits shall be used."
Rep. Kamauoha offered to amend
by making the title read "To regu
late permits for Chiueso to depart
and enter the kingdom."
The Attorney-General's amend
ment wi5s carried, and the title as
The bill then passed as amended
to be engrossed aud read a third
time on Saturday.

water rights, was taken from the

wipe out the Cabinet by its breath,

for a committee of this House to go
into any particular department, and
upon a cuisory examination, say
that such and such measures shall
bo carried out, regardless of other
and perhaps more impoi taut mea
sures. Noble Widemann uaid he had list

Minister lias said, and he has not
touched or said one word on the sub

been later than the latter part of the
first week of tho Session beforo the
Appropriation Bill had been before
the House, and he thought that it
was timo now that the House had
tho bill before it for action.
Minister Green stated that if tho
report presented to the House on
the firstlay of the Session is not a
budget, then ho docs not know what
a budget is. lie said 'the report
was more complete than any such
previous report, and was in fact an
Appropriation Bill. He would like
the opinion of the House in regard
to bringing in the Appropriation
Bill. Some were against it and ad
vised holding it back. Under any
circumstances, it will shortly be pre
sented. Rep. Paehaolo spoke in favor of
presenting the bill at once.
Rep. C. Brown said if tho report
was called a budget, what does he
call the report that the law requires
him to make.
