FRIDAY, SEIT. 19, 1890.
Iu it owing to another "inadequate
estimate" that our gilt-edged elec
tric light plant is unable to keep the
three lamps burning between Judd
street and the end of the service,
just beyond Mr. F. A. Schaefer's
The genius of the "family circle"
declares, "the more the report of
the Finance Committee is probed
the worse it appears." As the bril
liant wit who has made this occult
discovery has repeatedly announced
himself to be an apostle of that
scarce commodity, unvarnished
truth, it is evident that "it" in his
sentence must refer to the "probe,"
in spite of the grammatical construc
tion. Like other thick-and-thin de
fenders of the late Government he
will doubtless discover in time that
a mistake was made in not using a
diamond drill when the Finance He
port was first attacked.
Jf the highest flattery is imita
tion, the National Reform Party of
Hawaii may feel justly proud. A
new political party for the United
States was born at St. Louis after
midnight September ftth, and was
named the National Reform Party.
The old parties having given pro
mises instead of performances in
the matter of reform, an ex
perience likewise paralleled here, a
new party was inevitable. If the
leaders of both parties live up to the
two qualifying words "national"
and "reform" thev can afford to
drop several impracticable fads and
still have foundation enough left for
a splendid fabric.
LATEST TARIFF HEWS.
From the most reliable private
sources we are enabled to give our
readers the following latest news
and comments on the Tariff Bill, to
gether with the names of the Con
ference Committees to whom the bill
will go before it is returned to the
ilouso for final action:
"The .Tariff question has at lust
been settled by the Senate, the Al
drich amendment to the sugar
.ichedulo with some modifications
Uaving been adopted. The matter
has now gone to Conference Com
mittees, appointed by both branches
of Congress and llic only hope re
maining is that euch committee may
be stubbornly loyal to the bills
which they represent, and thtia pre
vent any reconciliation of interests
until the next session of Congress.
This is a forlorn hope, however, and
it is generally thought that the dif
ferences will he harmonized nnd a
bill agreed upon at once, which will
embody tho Aldrich features,
"The faot is the reciprocity idea

'All of those gentlemen have pro
nounced views upon the subject,
nnd are abundantly nblo to express
them, and no doubt the matter will
receive as full consideration as is
po33ible under the circumstances.
"At present reports as to the ex:
act beatings of the bill are consider
ably mixed, but lu most reliable in
terpretation seems to be that the bill
as a whole goes into effect on Octo
ber 1st; that from March 1st to July
1st, 1891, sugar is to be free, but on
the latter date the President shall
by proclamation declare the duties,
a3 provided in the present bill, im
posed upon such countries as at that
time shall not have adopted the re
ciprocal relations exacted by the
THE TARIFF BILL.
The Senate has passed the Tariff
bill with Aldrich's reciprocity am
endment. The House opposed re
ciprocity, but it, is understood that
leading Republican members have
since been converted to that belief,
and that conference is likely to re
sult in harmony. The lowering of
the standard of sugar to be admit
ted free of duty ft am No. 1C to No.
13 is in the interest of American re
finers. It gives them free sugar to
work on, while affording them pro
tection on partly refined grades.
Growers must look to the bouuty of
2 cent1; for their protection. The
present tariff on raw sugar is 1.4 ft
cents si pound on that testing not
above 7.") degrees by the polarisuope,
with four-tenths of a cent a pound
for every additional degree or frac
tion thereof. Under this tariff the
p rowers of Louisiana say that the
business will not be profitable.
Whether or not it cau be made pro
fitable with the bounty can only be
determined bv experience. Thu
Reciprocity Amendment authorizes
and makes it the duty of the Presi
dent after July 1 , 1891, to impose
duties on sugar, tea, coffee and
hides, coming from countries which
do not, in his opinion, extend recip
rocal advantages to the United
States. It leaves him great discre
tion by making what constitutes
proper reciprocity a matter of opin
ion. fS. F. Bulletin.
Friday, Sept. 19.
The House met at 10 o'clock.
KLl'OKTS OP COMMITTEES.
Rep. Cummings presented the re
port of tho public lands committee
on a petition for a new road at Ka
lihi, from King street leading up the
valley to land of Mrs. Beckley, re
commending that it be laid on the
table, as the road would not be of
public benefit. Adopted.
Rep. Ilalstead presented tho re
port of the judiciary committee on
the opium scandal. It goes over a
great deal of the ground covered by
the select committee, recommending
in conclusion that John H. Soper
be censured for the loss of the Ka
hului opium, because, as they find,
bricks, etc., were substituted for the
opium while it was in his custody as
Marshal. Signed by Win. White,
W. H. Halstead, and Jos. Nawahi.
Rep. Kanealii moved that the re
port be adopted.
Minister Brown said the report
accused a late officer of the Govern
ment on evidence that would hardly
be sufficient to convict. Mr. Soper
was accused of getting away with
some of the "F. T." opium that was
never hi his custody. Another
wrong effect of adopting the report
would be to exonerate others who
were under suspicion. The Attorney-General
was aware of facts that
led him to a different conclusion
from that of the committee. He
therefore moved that the report, to
gether with that of the select com
mittee, be referred to the Attorney
General, Hep. Kanealii considered that the
committee had clearly proved the
culpability of the late Marshal, and
their report should therefore be
adopted. Jf the Attorney-General
had other facts, why had he not pre
sented tbeui before tho committee?
The trouble heretofore had been that
the truth was suppressed.
Rep. R. W. Wilcox said It wag
useless for the Minister to get up
and try to shield ollicera of the late
Government. It only proved tho
old saying that blood is thicker than
water. The Marshall was tho re
sponsible man, whether he took the
opium or not, and tho House should
mark its displeasure. Ho was sorry
they had a Cabinet there who weru
trying to shield dishonest officials.
Thoy should be turned out of olllce
if that was their pnlioy. lletter
have no Government at nil tlmn on
that fehleldrd wrong-doing.

Noble Widetnann rose.
Rep. Paehnole raised a point of
order, but did not know what It
was. He wanted to prevent the hot).
Noble from 3peaklng until he could
find what rule waa transgressed.
Noble Widemann repeatedly ask
ed that, the hon. member be com
pelled to sit. down.
The President What nile is it?
Noble Widemauu The rule that
he has the floor. He went on to say
that the report found the Knhului
opium reached the Station June 17,
while F. Turrlll, who was a frequent
visitor there, taking opium nway to.
sell, testified that the opium was still
in Maui on October, 188lJ. If tlite
was so, something more than censure
Rep. Paelmolc had foil ud the rule,
which was that members on rising
should address the President. He
was iu favor of adopting the reporl
and then, if the Attorney-General
had further evidence, let him go on
with prosecutions. There was no
doubt the .Minister of nuance had
Mr. Turrill dismissed because there
was snuielhing rotten with him. The
speaker did not believe Turrill'n
Minister lV.teison would like to
ask the judiciary committee if they
intended to bring in a report regard
ing the "F. T." opium.
Minister Peterson said then this
report should be laid over till the
other one was presented. The two
matters could not be separated. The
"F. T." opium that, never left the
Custom House for the Station, was
substituted with bricks and straw
the nuie as that alleged to have
beeu stolen from the Station. The
mnterial used to replace the opium
was the same in both cases, and
there was no doubt the manipula
tions of both were done by the same
parties. He denied the charge that
the Government were trying to
shield anybody, if they could get
evidence they would prosecute those
suspected to the full extent of the
law. Ho moved that the report be
laid on the table until the committee
present their other report.
Rep. Nawahi believed that the
Attorne3'-General was trying to con
fuse them by mixing up the two
transactions, which the speaker had
no doubt were entirely separate.
Tho Attorney-General was in the
same department as the late Mar
shal at the time, and had aaid to
the committee he did not think Mr.
Soper was guilty. How could he
prosecute the eases when he had
thus prejudged them? They had
traced the opium iu its passage from
Kahului to the Station, and when
Mr. Turrill said that the opium was
still on Maui in October he deliber
ately lied. The Government was
justified in getting rid of Mr. Tur
rill, a man about whom there had
been so many rumors, who had
amassed a large fortune in a few
months. The committee were also
satisfied that Police captain Hopkins
lied to them, saying he was here at
a time when the records showed that
he was Deputy Sheriff of Ewa.
They believed that Hopkins was a
member of the opium ring. As
they had not evidence to convict
cither Turrill or Hopkins, they con
cluded to hold the Marshal re
sponsible. Rep. Brown asked if the commit
tee examined Mr. Soper at all.
Rep. Nawahi said they had not,
because he was absent. They made
use of the evidence Mr. Soper gave
to the other committee.
Rep. Brown wished to inform the
hon. member that a witness appear
ed before the select committee and
testified that he had a key to the
opium room as well as the Marshal.
Rep. Nawahi (showing) said it
was evident that the boxes were not
the ones that came from Maui. He
would defy anyone to pack in them
the quantity of opium.
Recess from 12 to 2 o'clock.
HOUSE AND LOBBY.
Rep. Marques has been absent
several days from illness.
The House has been so busy try
ing to do nothiDg for the last while,
that Noble Phillips has to sit in the
lobby when he wants a nap.
The session began with the opium
scandal and if it holds out longer
than tho scandal it may well dis
perse covered with glory.
