THE DEBATING SOCIETY.
While the Legislature was discus
sing the Chinese . question in the
House last evening, and the Chinese
themselves had tho question under
consideration in a mass meeting at
their theatre, the Debating Club
ventilated the same subject at their
regular place of meeting, Knights of
Pythias Hall. The debate was
opened by Mr. D. Logan in a calm,
clear and rational presentation of
tho subject, and was followed by
several other speakers with a variety
of opinions. There was no dispo
sition evinced to indulge in extreme
views, but the burden of the
speeches was that it was an ex
tremely dilllcult matter for the Le
gislature of the country to deal
with, and that hasty and unjust
measures should be avoided.
Col. M. Thompson, of this citj',
has, jointby with his general law
practice, inaugurated a branch of
the legal profession in vogue in
England and the United States,
which will bo valuable to those who
choose to avail themselves of it,
namely, the giving of written opin
ions, upon facts stated to him in
his ollicc, corner of Fort and Mer
chant streets, Honolulu, or by let
ter. The opinion will set forth the
facts as stated to him, and givo tho
laws and authorities, applicable to
the facts, and his opinion as to the
course proper to be pursued, and
also the probable result of an action
at law, or equity, as the case may
be, and after the client receives,
reads, and understands the opinion,
he may decide whether to go to law,
or not, and ho is, of course, at li
berty to employ any person he may
choose, to prosecute his suit in
court, if ho should decide to go to
Col. Thompson is the author of
law books which are read approving
ly in the United States Supreme
Court, and other courts, and especi
ally the courts of the district of
Columbia, where he resided and
A LADY'S LETTER.
A Christchurch, New Zealand,
paper publishes a letter descriptive
of a visit to tho Hawaiian Islands
and the Volcano of Kilauca, by a
lady. Tho whole is very readable,
but is too lengthy for reproduction
in our columns at present. The
concluding paragraph is here given,
as indicating what a ladj' tourist who
has nothing but admiration for the
natural wonders of the country, im
plies in regard to our barbaric pass
port system, which our Legislature
has declined to abolish:
"Before closing this letter I must
givo one little piece of advice to
tourists staying in Honolulu. It is
to ask for their bills at hotels or
boarding houses in good time before
their steamer sails, or they may find
tlieniselves disgracefully over-charged,
when it is too late to dispute
their bill, and the law is so made
that a creditor may prevent a debtor
from leaving the place, no matter
how unjust the "debt may be. I
know of a party who stayed at a
place in Honolulu who suffered in
this way to the tune of about
twenty-six dollars overcharge, but
they had no redress,as their steamer
was just about sailing."
ADMISSION TO THE BAR.
A young man applied to the Sup
remo Court of the state of South
Carolina, for admission to tho bar,
and the court requested the Attorney-General
of tho state to examine
tho young man, which, as usual,
was dono in tho presence of the
Judges, and after fhe examination
Had proceed at some length, and
not very satisfactorily to the Judges,
and they were about to reject the
applicant, tho Attorney-General
stated an imaginary, though not an
improbable case, and asked tho ap
plicant if ho should bo admitted to
practice, and a client should come
into this olllce, with such a case,
and ask his advico in regard to it,
what answer he would make, and
tho applicant, after rubbing his head,
apparently for an idea, replied, that
he would first lake the fee, and then
examine the law and the authori
ties, and then givo his opinion,
that pleased tho Judges, and they
admitted him without further exam
ination, remarking, that they thought
he "would do, and that water would
llnd its level;" and that man be
came a brilliant lawyer, and a
Judge of the said court.
Washington, August 20. Tho
Posttnastcr-Gcucral notified FcKou
to-day that he would inform the
New Zealand Government by tele
graph at onco that the Unitod States
would pay tho American steamship
lino between San Francisco and that
country 850,000 a year for carrying
tho mail. Tho amount paid to tho
steamship company by tho Govern
ment of New South Wales was 810,
000 a year. That Government re
fuses to continue the payment of
this sum. The amount tho United
States has paid the lino annually
has been about 820,000. The full
amount of sea and inland postage
which the Postmaster-General has
discretion to pay to tho line last
year amounted to about 517,000.
Ho estimates the increase of mail
matter will increase tho amount this
year to S50, 000. He offers the full
amount of tho sea and inland post
ago to the steamship line in order to
maintain it. Tho Parliament of New
Zealand is now in session, and it is
expected that within tho next three
da3s it will determine whether it
will continue the subsidy which it
paid to this steamship lino for carry
ing the mails.
