The Iloii'fi resumed at 1 :30.
Toble 13ldiin, resuming the de
bate on the homestead bill, argued
that the Government should encour
age the division of land3 into home
steads. This section was required
to make the bill effective. A 9 a
landowner on Maui he had never
thought of rutting up hli land for
homestead. The Government
would not waste monoy in surveys,
but simply keep pace with tho de
mand for 'homesteads.
Hep. TJiekard wanted to Know
whv the amendments would defeat
the' object of the bill. It made a
great deal of difference whether tho
Government cuts up its own land or
that of other people. The bill
would increase the value of private
lands at tho Govcrnmcnt'3 expense,
and the least that should be expect
ed was that private owners should
bear the cost ol surveying their
lands. Ho reaped tho importance
of settling small farmcis on the
land, but he tliil object lo privaic
owners having their lands settled at
public exncnbi'. The Government
did a groat deal in bunging such
lands into the maikel. There was
no reason why the landowner should
not do the 'work directly, except
that he might not have the means
at the stait to pay the expenses.
The only reason for tho Govern
ment taking hold of it was to facili
tate settlement, but Ihe original
owner, who thus seemed the sale of
his lands, ought to refund tho ex
penses to the treasury.
Rep. Waipuiiani said that the sur
veying of the land for tc private
owueis might become a very serious
matter. A tract of -131 acres in
Kona was cut up into 22 lots, and
the surveyor war. paid 200 a
Rep. Paehaole thought it ought lo
be cousideied whethei the Govern
ment should ho advancing large
sums for surveys without n certainty
ot tbc lands being settled and the
money refunded. Another consider
alion'was the piobable loss of taxcB
on the lands when they passed into
the hands of the Government.
Rep. R. W. Wilcox moved that
the section be indefinitely postponed,
and he did so with the object of de
feating the whole bill. Its intent
seemed to be to provide for large
landholders having their lands sur
veyed at Government expense.
He wanted to know how many home
steads had been taken up, especi
ally as he saw an appropriation for
the expenses of homestcading.
Homesteads were survej cd and ly
ing round untaken in Kona.
Noble Cornwell bclieed that thi3
bill was for the purpose of promot
ing the settling ot homesteads. lie
did not believe in making the pri
vate owners pay the expenses if the
lands were not taken. There was
one landowner on JIaui who had
offered his land for homesteads, but
he was not going to the expense of
surveying, it himself, He would
support tbe section as in the bill.
Noble Crabbe asked if Crown
lands were included in the bill.
The President said they were not.
The section passed as in the bill.
Sections 5, C, 7, and S passed
Noble "Widemann on tho ninth
section being read, asked what
the title to the homesteader
would be worth, or who would
lend money on the mortgage men
tioned, under the conditions of the
bill giving the Government the first
claim on the land for security. This
section would mislead people into
thinking that they could mortgage
the homestead for money to pay for
fencing it when the' could not.
Minister Urown agreed with tho
lion. Noble, thought tho bill would
be as well without this section, and
therefore moved it be stricken out.
The enacting clause and the whole
bill passed, to be read a third time
The text of the bill is as follows :
Section 1. For the purposes of
this Act tho word "Minister" shall
mean tho "Minister of the Interior."
Tho word "Homesteader" shall
mean nny person who has 'entered
into an agreement with tho Minister
of the Interior, and in possession of
land under tho terms of tho Home
stead i.aw. Tho word "land
owner" shall mean any person or
corporation who shall, under tho
tei'insof this Act, convey land to tho
Minister of the Interior ior the pur
pose of having the same divided up
and sold as homesteads.
Section 2. Tho Minister if. herohy
authorized and empowered to enter
into contracts with nny private person
or company whereby lands may bo
acquired by tho Government for
homestead purposes. Such con
tracts shall state an agreed value at
which homesteads taken therefrom
shall bo sold to actual settlers or
homesteaders, and shall also set
forth all other matters necessary to
an equitable fulfillment of such con
tracts a3 herein prescribed. Such
contracts shall convey tho title to
the premises in fee to the Minister,
conditioned on the fulfillment of the
Section 3. Upon tho execution of
such contract, tho Minister shall
take possession of the promises cov
ered thereby, and piocccd to lay
out tho same into homestead lots
and to do and peiform all other
waiters anil things relative thereto,
required by tho Act entitled "An
Act to Facilitate the Acquiring and
Settlement of Homesteads," being
Chapter -15 of tho Laws of 3881,
and the amendment thereto contain
cd in Chapter L1V. of the Laws
of 1888, or any amendment'! here
after made to tho same.
Section -1. The cost of surveys,
laying out homestead lota, and till
other expenses incidental thereto,
and the coat of collection of interest
and the purchase price incurred in
connection with such land shall be
paid by the Minister and charged to
the land owner, in proper books of
account kept for that purpose.
Section C. All payments made on
account of tho purchase price of any
such homestead lot, or on account,
of intoresl thereon, shall be received
by the Minister and credited lo such
land owner, in such books of ac
count mentioned in section -1 of this
Section 0. At the close of each
calendar quarter, if there shall bo
any excess of receipts on account of
any homestead lots, over and above
the payments and expenses chaigcd
thcicto, such excess shall be paid to
the land owner from whom such
land has been del ived.
Ned ion 7. Tho Minister shall
cause a record and account to be
kept with each land owner who may
convey lands for homestead pur
pecs hereunder, and also with each
homesteader ncqiming any pottlon
of such laud, and any other lccoid
which may be deemed nccessaiy in
Section 8. Whenever any home
steader talnng land obtained irom a
land owner under the terms ot
this Act shall have complied with
all of the terms of his homestead
agreement, the Minister shall there
upon execute to such homesteader
a deed in fee simple of such home
stead. Second reading of a bill to in
crease tho duties upon coffee from
foreign countries imported into lids
kingdom. Considered with report
of commerce committee thereon.
Kcp. Paehaole moved the bill
pass with flic amendment recom
mended by the committee.
.Noble Widemann moved it bo
considetcd section by section. Car
licd. Noble Widemann moved to strike
out the words "not having a treaty
with this kingdom," as recommend
ed by the committee. He also moved
to strike out the exception to coffee
plants and seed. There was no duty
on coffee plants or seed for planting.
Minister Brown supported the
amendment. There is a law for
bidding the importation of coffee
plants, for fear of the deadly coffee
Rep. Nawahi wanted to know if
the coffee in this country was so
good that better varieties could not
Noble Widemann said he had been
trying to get the seed of the Liberia
The amendments carried and the
section pass as amended.
Rep. Ilrown moed lo strike out
the second section, as it was un
necessary but had escaped the atten
tion of the committee. Carried.
Noble Widemann moved to amend
the original third section to be the
second section, and to change the
time for the Act lo become law to
"thirteen months" instead of "sixty
days" after approval. They ought
to do this right while about it. His
impression wa3 that there was a law
or decision of the Supreme Couit
requiring such a notice.
Noble Mullcr said some Euiopean
merchants might be under contiact
to nip ply local dealers for five years.
Theiefo'rc they ought to bring the
law into force at the end of that
period 1 He moved tho section pass
as in the bill.
Rep. Brown said it was the im
porter that paid the duty, and it
would not affect the contractor
abroad. If this amendment carried,
tho country would be flooded with
coffee, and have no benefit from the
law for twelve months or two year3.
Rep. Paehaole moved to inseit ns
Sec. 2 that all laws and parts of laws
in conflict with this Act arc repealed.
Noble "Widemann withdrew his
amendments to Sec. 3, which passed
ns in the bill.
Tho bill passed as amended, to
be read a third time nexl Tuesday,
and reads as follows:
Section 1. Theio shall be levied,
collected and paid upon all coffee of
any foreign country imported into
this Kingdom a duty of six cents a
pound whether the same be ground
or prepared coffee or not.
Scction2. All laws and pails of
laws in conflict, with this Act arc
Section 3. This Act shall take
effect and become law sixty days
after tho date of its approval.
Second reading of a bill to amend
Sec. 5, Chap. 47 of the Session Laws
of 1888, lclating to the salo of spiiit
iious liquors. Referred, on motion
of Rep, Brown, to tho special com
mittee on liquor bills.
Second reading of a bill to limit
tho liability of owners of vessels in
regard to tho possession of opium,
smuggling, and violation of tho
shipping and revenue laws. Refer
red, on motion of Noblo Widemann,
to the committee on commerce.
Second reading of a bill to provide
for the enforcement of certain liens
pertaining to public highways im
provements. Read by title, on mo
tion of Noblo J. M. Horner, and
referred to tho commitieo on com
merce, Second reading of a bill to repeal
Seen, 142, US, 114, and 146 of tho
Rep. Brown said that sinco Intro
ducing the bill, which related to the
shipping of natlvo seamen, he found
there was another section that should
be included, and therefore ho moved
the bill bo referred to the committee
on commeicc. Carried.
Second leading of a bill to en
coinage railways on the island of
Hawaii. Deferred, on motion of
Nobie Phillips, to Tuesday.
Second reading of a bill to create
cantouicrs, etc. Referred, on motion
of Rep. Marques, to committee on
Second reading of a bill to amend
Sec. 72, Civil Code, l elating to the
licensing of hotels.
Noble Widemann thought the bill
ought to bo dealt with at once to
save time, as it was simple and there
was nc doubt of its being a good
Rap. Brown moved the bill pass.
Noble Phillips, author of the bill,
explained that its object was to ena
ble an ofliccr of the Board of Health
to inspect hotels and Victualling
houses, as lo their sauilaiy condi
tion. Rep. Paehaole said the bill might
be a very good one, but there were
hotels and paling houses all over the
kingdom, and it might bo inconven
ient to their keepers to hunt up an
officer of the Hoard ot Health. The
bill ought to go to a committee.
Rep. Kauhi thought the House
ought to go slowly. This bill re-
quncd hotel and restaurant keepers
to come to Honolulu for an tjlilcer
of the Boaul of Health. Evidently
these oflicers had more than they
could do alicady, as there was a
very bad smelt from the stables at
the corner of Fort and Hotel streets.
Rep. Nawahi in a speech of several
minutes moved that the House ad
Rep. Rice saw nothing in the bill
fixing tho fee to be received by the
agent of the Hoard for the certifi
cate. Rep. White was at a loss to know
what was to be done if the agent
refused a certificate to the icstaurant
keeper. The air would be full of
Chinese curses. Ho moved the bill
be leferrcd to the committee on
Noble Phillips said there was
nothing requiring the bill to be re
fen ed to a committee. There was
do "nigger in the fence" about it.
It was intended chiefly to facilitate
sanitary improvement in Honolulu.
Noble J. M. Horner thought that
if the bill interfered with Chinese
coffee shops it was a very dangerous
mepsure. He had often been glad
when traveling to get a cup of coffee,
or a piece of bread and butter, in
one of these places, although there
was a good deal of dirt about them.
Rep. Biown said the bill could be
confined in its operation to Hono
lulu, and let the countiy retain its
filthy little coffee shops.
Noble Baldwin considered the bill
a good one as it stood. These shops
in some cases would turn a person's
stomach, and their uncleanlincss was
due mainly to cnrelessncss. The
bill would involve no great hard
ship, only a little lime perhaps.
Noble J. M. Homer, on being in
formed that all these coffee shops
pay a license, said then he had no
objection whatever to the bill.
Rep. Paehaole thought that as the
bill did not govern tho quality of the
victuals it should go to a committee.
The bill passed, to be lead a third
time Tuesday. It is as follows :
becliou 1. That Section 72 of the
Civil Code be and the same is here
by amended by adding thereto the
following provision, to wit: Provided
the applicant pioduces a certificate
from an Officer or Agent of the
Board of Health that the premises
to ue used under luc license are m
good sanitnty condition, and the
license shall contain a condition that
the premises be kept in such condi
tion, so that the said Section shall
read as follows :
"Section 72. The Minister of the
Interior may grant a license to any
person applying therefor, in writing,
to keep a hotel or victualing house
for the term of one year upon re
ceiving the sum of fifty dollars;
piovided the applicant produces a
certificate from an Oiilccv or Agent
of the Board of Health that the
premises to be used under the license
are in good sanitary condition and
the license shall contain a condition
that tho ptemiscs be kept in such
Section 2. This Act shall lako
effect and become law "from and
after the dale of its approval.
Rep. Bush, under suspension of
rules, gave notice of a bill to ainend
Sec. 38, Civil Code, relating to
Notices of committee meetings
Rep. Nawahi, on suspension of
tho rules, presented tho report of
the special committee on the item of
$21,000 for repairs of Government
buildings, recommending that it be
increased to S-ll.lfjO according to a
schedule attached to the report.
Laid on the table, to bo considered
with the Appropriation Bill.
House adjourned at 3:53.
