FRIDAY, AUG. 31, 18S8.
The Legislature to-day voted Mr.
B. 1 Dillingham's bill for an exclu
sive franchise for twenty yearn of
steam railroading on the island of
Oahu, except that the exclusive
right does not apply to the district
of Kona, and with the proviso that
he satisfy the Government within
eighteen months that he will con
struct and operate, a road as far as
Pearl harbor, and also that after
three years the Government may
contract with any Hawaiian corpo
ration for building a road between
any points not then connected.
The fact that the Tramways Com
pany had offered and is now ready
to build a steam railway to Pearl
harbor, without any exclusive right,
was not deemed siilllcicnt cause for
refusing an exclusive right to Mr.
We arc lad our towiibman has
secured this valuable privilege, but
we see no public reason why the Le
gislature should give an exclusive
franchise to anyone. It is not like
Wilder's Hilo Water Works fran
chise, or the Honolulu Street Rail
way, where there was no competi
tion, no one else would put his
money into the enterprise. Here
the money is waiting to be invested
by the Tramways Co., and with no
request for a subsidy.
This may be wise dealing with
public interests, but we fail to see
the wisdom or right.
Ewtok Bulletin: Some of the
Acts recently passed by our Repre
sentatives evinco such a lamentable
state of ignorance in the assembled
wisdom of the nation, that an on
looker may well wonder whether tho
Legislature is a burlesque variety
troupe or a collection of sober
thoughtful men, fit to make such
laws as are calculated to benefit the
country. Take for instance the pro
posed act to specially licence the re
tail sale of Mr. Waller's products.
Under this proposition all mult li
quors manufactured in Honolulu
under the 15 years charter of tho
National Brewery, can bo sold un
der a licence of $100 per annum,
whereas other goods of the same na
ture cannot be sold under a licence
of less than $1000. Do the mem
bers who vote for this bill know that
whiskey or gin can be made of malt
as easily as from corn?
One of the most widely known
brands in tho states h tho Duffy
Malt Whiskey. Is it proposed that
locally manufactured malt liquors
shall pay a duty or not, and if a
duly is imposed how much b it lo
The Act to better prevent the
illicit sale of spirituous liquors,
makes it penal for any person living
on tho premises in which a licensed
business is carried on, (other than
that of a liquor dealer) to have on
or about such premises a greater
quantity than one quart of ardent
spirits or half a gallon of wine or
beer. It is illegal for a country
saloon to sell hy the bottle, no li
cence now existing allows the sale
of half a gallon of wine or beer.
Theroforo if tho goods are purchased
outside of Honolulu, some Jay must
bo broken. Any person living out
side of Hilo, Kohala, Wuiluku,
a, IVaijuen ana Honolulu, must
cither drink Wnller's boor, bo n
teetotaller, or brenk the law by im
porting from Honolulu the smallest
quantity that a jobber or wholesaler
is allowed to sell, which would be
moro than the purchaser is allowed
to have. It appears to mo that the
United Slates and other Govern
ments might reasonably object to le
gislation that discriminates against
their products, which this bill in
troduced by Mr. Hobinson in favor
of the National Urcwcry certainly
It is undoubtedly advisable to
prevent illicit croi; selling, but
would not the belter way be to issue
licences of different classes for tho
country districts, in the same man
ner as is now done in England, the
States and Colonies, rather than
encumber tho statutes with laws
that arc so manifestly absurd as the
two referred lo.
By the way, my friend tho Attorney-General
has not cither denied
or acknowledged the fact of gin and
whiskey having been used in his at
tempted election for Waitnca, Kauai.
CHINESE MASS MEETING.
A mass meeting of Chinamen was
held in the Chinese theatre last
night. Every business house in
Chinatown was closed, and almost
every Chinaman turned out to the
meeting. The building was jammed
full, not a foot of standing room
being unoccupied by 7 o'clock. A
quarter of an hour later there was a
ciush outside of people unable to
gain admittance, and droves were
still crowding the street leading
from town to the place of meeting.
On the platform were seated re
presentatives of some of the best
Chinese firms in the city. The
audience was very orderly and well
conducted. Our reporter, on enter
ing, was shown all the courtesy a
member of the press could ask for,
and was impressed with the quiet
and ordcrlj conduct of tho assem
bly. AV. S. Akana was elected to the
chair, and expressed appreciation
of the confidence reposed in him by
his selection, in true American style,
promising to use his best ability in
conducting the meeting. He thought
that if legislation which is being ai
led is passed (presumably the book
keeping and constitutional amend
ment Acts) it will be ruin to the
Chinese; therefore they should do
their best to protect themsehes. He
invited anyone who had anything to
say for or against that legislation,
to stand up and talk.
The chairman's remarks were in
terpreted into English, as were also
those of the subsequent speakers.
C. Monling was the first speaker.
He said that he had been on the
islands 10 years: came here as a
rice cultivator. The islands were
not as prosperous then as now.
There was a reciprocity treaty with
America, which had enriched the
islands. The Chinamen had done
much to bring the country to its
present condition of prosperity.
They went to Avork on waste and
worthless lands, and had made them
productive and profitable. The
Chinamen leased the lands from
white men, lo whom they paid rent.
He paid 83,000 a ye.ir in rent and
taxes. The revenue of the Govern
ment is $1,200,000, of which amount
the Chinese pay 8500,000, or more
than one-third of the whole. They
do not grumble at this, but pay
their taxes cheerfully. In July of
last year there was a law made
against the Chinese, (as see the
Constitution) debarring them from
voting. The proposed amendment
to this Constitution, which is now
sprung upon them, is worse than be
fore, and they cannot stand it.
Chinamen pay taxes as well as
others, then why should they not
have the same rights? It was their
duty to consider what is for their
The speaker sat down amidst
Tain Tow said lie had been here
10 years. The Chinamen were at
first well treated by the Govern
ment, but since last year the law
has been very hard. They had left
their homes and families, and came
hero to make mono'. This was
their only aim, and not to get into
trouble. Foreigners say the Chinese
are encroaching upon them. He
thought the Chinamen had kept
within tho law, but the law is get
ting harder. Foreigners seem to
think that the Chinese Government
does not care for us, and that they
can do as they like. China has
plenty ships of war, cruisers, whose
business it is to go around the world
and protect her people.
The Government appropriates $10,
000,000 a year for ships and war
material for tho protection of the
people. Her arsenals compare well
with those of other nations. The
Chinese arc well protected against
other powers. America and Eng
land, great and powerful nations,
send their diplomatic representatives
to Linna, while a little country like
Hawaii thinks it can drive tho China
men awy. All nationalities come
and settle here, and whether there
be a treaty or no treaty they should
be treated all alike. Chinamen pay
taxes, and pay for licences to
carry on business, why should they
not be treated tho same as other
peoplo? The laws against the Chi
nese are not right. A memorial has
been sent to the ambassador at
Washington and another to the
Viceroy of Canton, and it is believ
ed they will take steps to render
help. Englishmen, Americans, and
Germans are here, why not pass an
equal liMYWr all?
Tho speaker here appealed to the
audience, "arc you satisfied with
the law?" to which one loud re
sponse of nol noil no!!! was ut
tered by the audience. Tho peoch
was frequently and loudly applaud
ed. Following C. Monting and Tarn
Tow came Chung Low, anex-poliec-ninn
; Nir Chan, L. Ahlo, Man Chin,
T. Ah Hung and Chang Leo, mer
chants; Lcc Sing, driver; Chung
Kau, watchmaker; Hit Tung, car
penter; Chang Jau Sing, teacher;
Loo Ngawk, Yeo Chin and Young
Quong Slice, merchants ; Waa Sing,
express-driver; and Pock Young,
The burden of the majority of the
speeches might be summed up thus:
"Some of us have been here more
than 30 years. We pay taxes, du
ties and rents; wc want civil rights.
Let us petition our country for pro
tection, and if they will not assist
us, we must help ourselves. Wc
arc over 20,000 strong; let us unite
and stand firm.
IIu Tung, express driver, said
that he charges f0 cents to take a
passenger to Kalilii, while others of
other nationalities than his charge
25 cents; and yet the haolc drivers
say that Chinamen ruin the express
business by cutting down the prices.
Pock Young, cook, said that for
merly candy was $1 or more a
pound, now it is eight pounds for a
dollar. Is anj' Chinaman in the
candy-making business? No. Has
any Chinaman cut down the price?
No. Look at the price of soda
water, and compare it with tho for
mer charges, and see if the reduc
tion was caused by Chinamen. Is
any Chinaman making soda water?
IIu Tung, carpenter, said that he
did not try to run out any white
carpenter ; the haolcs ran after him
when they wanted a carpenter.
The following committee was ap
pointed to wait upon the Legisla
ture: Wong Kwai, chairman; Tom
Tow, Ching Lock, T. Aliung, C.
Monting, L. Ahlo and Ng Chan.
78th Dat August 30th.
The House rc-asembled at 1:10.
Minister Thurston moved that the
bills for third reading be taken up.
Third reading of an Act relating
to internal taxes. Passed.
Consideration of the Anti-Chinese
amendment to the Constitution was
Minister Thurston said the inten
tion of the words "with due regard
to vested rights" would nullify the
amendment. If the House had any
regard for the future and welfare of
this country they would not attempt
to shirk their dutj. He hoped the
amendment would pass.
Noble Wilder said the feeling was
so strong at the recent convention
that a strong resolution was unani
mously adopted with regard to Chi
nese. He was not in the House to
express his individual views but the
views of those who shut sent him
there. He should most heartily
support the amendment.
Rep. Kauhi favored indefinite
postponement of the amendment.
It was in direct conflict with arti
cles 1 and 13 of the Constitution.
Minister Ashford offered an
amendment to line 11 by inserting
after the word "sugar" the words
"or in the cultivation of any other
nrnrlllnf nf flio cnil "
Minister Green said the amend
ment was not only unjust but it was
utterly inellicacious for the purposes
intended. If it passed with the
amendment offered by Rep. C.
Brown it would be useless, and if it
passed without that amendment it
will do away with the vested rights
of a large portion of the population,
lie would make a motion that the
amendment be laid on the table.
Noble Smith moved the ayes and
noes bo taken. Carried.

on the table was lost on the follow

Minister Ashford moved to refer
the amendment with the various
amendments to a select committee.
Noble Smith said although tho
greatest attention had been paid by
the committee to the amendment he
favored it being again referred so
that it could have the fullest and
most complete consideration.
Rep. C. Brown was nol in favor
of referring it to any committee; ho
thought the House could disposo of

House was treading on dangerous
ground in attempting to amend tho
Constitution for the purpose of class
legislation. Tho Chinese had cer
tain rights which they were bound
Minister Green said it looked to
him like a plume of slavery in dis
Noble Young said thoy would all
like to remove the difficulty, but
every time they tried they ran
against a snag. One of the greatest
calamities would bo to removo the
Chinese from us. Hy restriction wc
can accomplish all wc want to. The
honorable Noble related an instance
where a Chinaman once supported a
while man whom he worked for
when a boy, and who was in desti
tute circumstances. lie asked whe
ther any of the Anti-Asiatic Union
howlers would do such a thing. If
so let him be trotted out. As the
amendment stands it is not honest
and square, lie favored reference
to a committee again.
Noble Smith said they must be
permitted to moke legislation for
those Chinese who will come here in
On a vote being taken the amend
ment was referred to a select com
mittee by a vote of 27 to 8.
On suspension of the rules Noble
Smith presented a report from the
Judiciary Committee on a petition
relating to tho keeping of books of
accounts, recommending it be laid
on the table.
Noble Waterhouso moved the ma
jority report be adopted. Carried.
The President appointed the fol
lowing select committee on the Anti
Cliiucse constitutional amendment:
W. O. Smith, C. Brown, Minister of
Interior, D. II. Hitchcock, G. II.
