Hawaiian, American and Japanese.
The Japanese resident in Honolulu,
nearly a hundred, had gatiiered to
greet Rev. M. C. Harris, Superin
tendent of the M. E. Japanese Mis
sion in San Francisco. Rev. Mr.
Miyaina and others of that mission
have been laboring for the various
islands, for some months past, for
the spiritual welfare of their coun
trymen. Mr. Harris finds tho work
opening with prospects of speedy
and remarkable results. Over -100
have joined the Temperance So
ciety. Every one connected with
the Japanese Consulate rejoices 'in
Christian faitli and its accompany
ing blessings. There is a rising
tide of Chribtian zeal for the conver
sion of all the Japanese on these
islands. Rev. Mr. Harris was wel
comed in behalf of the Christian
people of Honolulu by Rev. Dr.
Hydo, and by the Consul, M. Taro
Ando, in behalf of the Japanese
community. Judge MeCully, Judge
Lyinan and Rev. S. E. Bishop join
ed in the felicitations of the occa
sion. Rev. Mr. Harris responded
very pleasantly and impressively in
both English and Japanese. The
occasion will long ho remembered by
all present as one of peculiar inter

11LSOLUTI0XS AND HILLS.
Minister Green gnve notice of a
bill lo regulate the olllce of Tax As
sessors and Collectors, and for the
assessing and collecting of taxes.
Minister Thurston read a first
time a bill to amend the law relating
to the Hawaiian Postal Savings
Bank. Referred to Printing Com
mittee. Minister Green atiswcrcd the ques
tion of the Hon. Noble Widcmann,
contained in his resolution of the
previous day. lie stated that he
had given no special instructions to
the parties named in the resolution,
cither directly or through the tax
assessor, relative to the assessment
of taxes, except in two cases of
bankers in Honolulu, (the only two)
when the question cainc up as to
whether the law called upon them
to return the list of their depositors
and lo pay the taxes on the amount
deposited, charging the same to the
depositors. Botli these bankers,
Messrs. Bishop & Co. and Clans
Sprockets & Co. disputed the pro
position that the law obliged them
to do so. The question was brought
before the Cabinet, and it was de
cided that tlie law did not so com
pel them to pay taxes on the amount
of deposits. One of the main
grounds urged, and which the Cab
inet recognised as valid, being that
they had no such amount on hand,
but that tho money was lent out to
Other parties, lie personally saw
Mr. Damon of Bishop & Co., and
Mr. Win. G. Irwin of Clans Spreck
els & Co., and agreed with them, iu
accordance with the decision of the
Cabinet, that they should return
their actual cash on hand and pay
taxes upon that, and not the much
larger amount standing to the credit
of the depositors.
The usual printed instructions ac
companied the assessment list, but
there is nothing in this instructing
the "parties" named in the resolu
tion, except the general statement
that "parties" having property be
longing to others in their possession,
arc assessed for the value thereof,
and may recover the amount of tax
paid, from the owners. By the same
assessment list each party is shown
to be expected to return for himself
casli in bankers' or agents' hands.
Noble "Wideinann moved lo accept
this report, have it tranlatcd and
made the special order of the day
this day week. He considers that
it essentially alters the law as it now
exists on the statute books.
Minister Ashford stated that lie
should ask to have the matter refer
red to the Judiciary Committee, as
it is a matter that involves the inter
pretation of a section of the law.
The Ministry have put such a con
struction as is contained in the
answer from the Minister of Finance.
They may be wrong, and the five
lawyers constituting the Judiciary
Committee are able to decide whether
or not the Ministry have interpreted
the law aright.
Rep. C. Brown said lie did not
think that the Judiciary Committee
should be obliged to interpret the law
for lite Cabinet. If the Ministers think
that their construction of the law is
not correct, they should refer the
matter to tho Supreme Court for
their decision, and not drag down
the Court into the House by refer

oitimit or tiii: day.
Third reading of the Governor
bill with potitions and reports of the
committee on the subject.
Minister Ashford said that the
substitute bill was not of such a
nature as would admit of a compro
mise by the Government, and
the CaBinet consider tho ofllee
superfluous. The control of the
police lias already been taken from
the Governors, and u bill now before
tho house relative to pounds and
e.strays takes that duty from tho
Governors, and they hare practically
nothing at all to do. He said the
government were willing to reacli a
compromise, but as thoy hold ollice,
and accepted such en the plat
form of tho reform party, one plunk
of which is to abolish all useless
olllces, they cannot support the bill
brought in by a majority of the
committee. Ho tlierofore moved to
pass the original bill to engross
ment. Noble Smith said that tiio main
features arc these: he gave the
Ministers credit for sincerity at the
lust session hut did not give them
credit for wisdom, but now ho did
not give tliom credit for sincerity.
Thoy said that they could not re
move the con upt Governors then in
olllce, and consequently wished to
have the olllce abolished. Now
tho bill removes that diflicully.
Tho bill goes farther than some of
tho majority of the committee cared
to have it go, H authorities tho
Ministry to temovo the Governors
at any time, which was considered
very arbitrary b3' the committee,
hut it was adopted by them and the
majority, were willing to slund by it.
He said ho wished to disclaim any
desire to push the Ministry to a de
feat in tills matter. Ho did not
consider the success of tho commit
tee bill as a defeat of the Ministry.
The committee feel that this bill if
passed will not defeat the Ministry
aud unseat lliem, unless thoy like
to have it do so. He moved that
tho committee bill he read a second
time by its title.
The motion was carried and tlio
bill read. Ho then moved to con
sider said bill section by section.
lie said he was as anxious as any
Minister to abolish any useless
olllce, and if there was no other
recourse for ridding the country of
the present incumbents, lie should
support the bill to abolish the oflice.
Ho cnumarated many olllcers of the
government on the various islands,
who are not under any supervision.
The reason that the functions of tiie
olllce are not delegated to Gov
ernors on Oahu, is because tlio
scat of Government is in Honolulu,
aud the heads of departments can
supervise all subordinate oilieers.
Not so in the country. The ten
dency has been to neglect tho coun
try, and concentrate all the power
in Honolulu. This is not wanted.
A better supervision of the workings
of the Government in the country is
demanded, and has been agitated
for some years, but to abolish the
olllce of Governor will only increase
this dilliculty and tend more aud
more to concentrate all the power in
Honolulu. He asked Mr. J. O.
Carter and Mr. Pratt what would be
the result in the assessment and
collection of taxes if this olllce was
abolished, and they both said, it
would bo impossible to keep the run
of it and it would not be known
whether taxes were properly assess
ed or not. Now in the assessment
aud collection of taxes alone it is
necessary lo have tins olllce. it is
impossible for the Minister of Fi
nance lo keep the run of those mat
ters. Angel Gabriel could not him
self do it, if ho was placed in the
same position as the Minister. He
said he had referred lo those gentle
men as they had had a large experi
ence. He did not, as a rule, be
hove that because a thing was good
at one time it should always be
good. He refened to a remark by
Hon. S. G. Wilder, who in conver
sation said that a good Governor on
the islands was an invaluable aid to
the Ministry, and his opinion should
have some weight, as ho has had a
long experience in the Government.
Another brunch of Government work
requires supervision, and that is the
Road Boards. Corruptions are
creeping in that need to be looked
into. Their power is greater than
road supervisors were under the old
law. If good reliable men could be
found to take the oflice, per
haps such corruptions would not
exist, but it is a fact that can
be proven that corruption does exist
in this department. Another rea
son why the oilleo should be con
tinued is, for the supervision of the
minor ollices iu the country now
held by Ilawaiians, who if they
have no one to guide and check
them will soon lup?e into lazy in
dolent servants, while if they arc
properly governed make goon ser
vants, and it is policy to employ
Ilawaiians where they can perforin
the duties. It would be just as
sensible for a plantation owner to
discharge his Manager be
caunc lie had 11 good Bookkeeper
and other minor position filled
with good men, as it. is for the
Government to abolish the olllce ol
Governor, because there are good
men in the ollices subordinate lo
him. He said that tlio Chief Clerk
of the Supreme Court, when making
up the report of the Chief Justice
said, it was impossible to tell
whether the inferior judges reported
one-half thu number of eases they
had tried, as there was no super
vision over that branch of the Gov
ernment, and it was useless to
make up a report from their re
ports. He said the minority of the
committee in their report seemed to
think that the majority of the com
mittee only wanted an inspector of
school houses. lie said the ma
jority of the committee framed a
bill tor the supervision of all de
partments of tho Government. Une
in particular needs supervision and
that is tho Government physicians.
They need looking after. They do
not carry out the provisons of tho
law under which they were appoint
ed. No private individual is going
to make a complaint against the
district physicians, and get his en
mity, because that same party may
need tho services of tlio physician the
next day, and it would be very un
pleasant to be subject to his ill-will.
At this point the house took re
cess until 1 p. m.
