Postal Savings Bank, to His Majesty
OIIDI'.K OK THE DY.
Third reading of the bill relating
to Hip appointment of tax assessors
and lax collectors. Passed.
Third reading of the bill to define
and limit the authority of Judges
to punish for contempt.
Minister Ashford spoke at some
length on the evil effects this bill
would have on parlies litigant, and
moved its indefinite postponement.
Minister Thurston said that there
had not been a measure before this
House for which ho should vote as
heartily as the one contained in this
bill, lie only regretted that be had
not -18 votes to cast for it instead of
one. The Attorney-General and
possibly one other member of the
bar of this country were the only ones
who opposed this bill, every other
member as well as a minority of tho
Supreme Court arc in favor of it,
and he hoped that it would pass
unanimously with perhaps tho ex
ception of the Attorney-General.
He said that to-day the press don't
dare to publish tho proceedings of
tho courts for fear of a prosecution
Rep. Kinney spoke in favor of the
bill. He referred to the opposition
the Supreme Court had shown to the
centralization of power in the Cabi
net. But there is centralization of
power in the Judiciary as wall as the
Executive department of the coun
try. Tho power of our Court
cannot be duplicated in any part of
the world. It is an indisputable fact
that our Judges hold powers that no
other Judges in the world hold. Wc
did not know until Kalakaua came
to the throne, the power the King
had under the old Constitution, but
found out that lie was an absolute
monarch, so with our Supreme
Court its power is absolute. Since
Judge Preston has taken the
bench he has been leading the
Court to unconstitutional actions,
not till lie took the bench did the
Court declare that the publication
of evidence was contempt. This
action of the Court has muzzled the
press. Sec .what it has come to
when a publisher of a newspaper
has to go to a Judge of the Su
preme Court and ask if he can pub
lish such and such an article. This
was done in the case some of Chinese
women who were being landed in
this country for immoral purposes.
Let the Judges keep up stairs and
attend to their work there, and not
be down here lobbying bills through
this House. He said that Judge
Preston had abused his power as a
Judge and he (the Judge)can call for
a Legislative investigation if he cares
to. 1 say so, and have evidence, to
back it ui). Ho (Mr. Kinney) knew
that he would be punished for what
lie had said to-day, in his practice
before the Courts during the next
two years, but he cared nothing for
that. This interference in the Legis
lative functions of the country
should be slopped. It should be a
just cause for impeachment. Ho
therefore moved that the bill pass
its third reading.
Kcp. Nakaleka spoke in favor of
the indefinite postponement of the
Rep. C. Brown said that when tho
bill was first introduced he was in
favor of it, but since then he has
changed' somewhat, abuses can arise
under this law', on the side of the
papers, quite as bad as those which
exist now on the oilier side.
Recess until 1:30 p. in.
The House ro-assemblcd at 1 :30
p. m., and resumed the considera
tion of tho contempt of Court bill.
Noble Smith spoke in favor of the
bill, stating that the law in Cali
fornia has twelve enumerations defin
ing what shall constitute contempt.
The Court here has absolute power.
This bill does not take away the
right of the Court lo protect itself,
in regard to contempt. This bill
provides that newspaper men may
publish for the benefit of their
readers what everybody has a right
to hear in the Courts of the King
kom. It does not interfere with the
power of the Court lo punish for
contempt. This bill is tho outcome
of the Judges putting a wrong con
struction on their power. The Court
can go but one step further than it
litis gone, and that is to shut up
the papers entirely, as tlioy do in
Minister Austin believed it neces
sary to protect the people from an
unlimited exercise of power by tho
Court, and should therefore support
Minister Ashford said that he
knew ho had earned the enmity of
the press, by tho stand ho had taken
on tiiis bill, but lie hoped they would
not snow him under. He was con
soled with tho fact that Judges, pre
cedents and authorities wore all on
his side, Ho asked iu regard to tho
decisions of tho Court. Have they
gone boyond the law? Have they
opressed any onu? Have they
wronged anyone? Ho opposed this
bill iu order to put some restraint
on tho press.
Hep. Kinney culled tho attention
of the Mouse to tho remarks of tho
last speaker, and said thero is no
excuse for such rulings as those re-

U. S. SUPREME COURT.
While Chief Justice Taney was
presiding iu this Court, a prosy
lawyer, discoursed familiar common
law, until Taney and tho whole
court bccdnic weary, and Taney, (a
very kind hearted man) leaned for
ward, and blandly Baid, "Air. At

know some law ;" and the said at

very suddenly, and seemed to look

On another occasion, a lawyer,
(no barristers thero)carriedhis bible
in thu Court room, and in the
courso of his argument, opened tho
bible and commenced reading, and
Taney took up his pen, and said,
"What book aro you roqding
from?" Tlio Attorney said, "Tho
Holy Bible, Your Honor." Taney
said, "Pleaso give me tho name of

cannot." Taney said, "Then you
cannot read the book in this Court ;
wo do not considor any book of any
authority, that docs not disclose tho

"May it please your honor, is not
