Your Attention To

JUaIJLi iiUJJUlCTlW :
Comuiittee of the whole resumed
consideration of the Appropriation
Minister Spencer promised to in
quire into the fact? regarding alleg
ed operations on the Volcano road.
He was in favor ot voting the money
to rcpav the buttties9 men who bad
advanced the 8 :, 000.
Noble Widemann did not sec how
any member could vote for sustain
ing the late Minister of the Interior
in' breaking the laws of the country.
Rep. Lucas did not want to make
two bad tilcks of the matter. Two
wrongs would not make a right. Let
them pay this money but give these
Ministeis to undeistand there must
bo no more ot this business. He
gave particulars of when the money
was drawn. The last voucher was
signed by the Superintendent of
Public Works but not by the Minis
ter of the Interior. Those parties
thought the late Minister's promise
was enough. They did not know it
was necessary to prevent a claim till
now when too Intc, but they should
not be kept out of their money be
cause they were gulled by a former
Noble Wiilrninnn moved that the
ayes and noes be called.
Noble Walker (President) thought
the motion wa9 out of order. It
was unheal d of, he thought, to call
the ayes and noes in committee of
Noble Macfarlane, although he
had previously taken part in tho
censures on the late Minister for his
action, was not quite prepaicd to
saj' whether the money should be
repaid or not. If not quite in or
der ho yet', as a matter of privilege,
wished to say something on the let
ter of Mr. Thurston in criticism of
the finance committee's conclusions.
Tbe letter said no charges of ex
travagance could be proved by the
committee, so that their finding was
only a slur on Mr. Mnrlin. The
committee never dreamed of finding
any fault vith Mr. Mailin as a road
builder, but he would say that the
83-8tem of pay rolls on the road had
produced the grossest irrcgulnrities,
for which the ex-Minister of Interior
wai responsible, and not Mr. Marlin.
Mr. Thurston had produced a peti
tion miking the late Government to
continue the road. This petition
was not discovered by the commit
tee, as it had evidently been care
fully pigeon-holed. The petition
bore evidence of having been writ
ten on the type-writer in the Interior
Office ; at any rate be did not hesi
tate to believe that it was inspired by
Mr. Thurston. It contained many
names of Chinese, Poituguese, etc.,
who could not sign their names. One
w hole sheet of the petition contain
ed the names of 37 natives, all
signed by one man, Kamaka, the
same man who could not s!gn his
name to the pay rolls, but who man
aged to furnish n pretty good signa
ture when he was required to wit
ness the pay rolls. This list of
names was taken from tho pay rolls
already referred to taken from the
bogus pay rolls. Four names ap
peared on it wiitten by other than
their owners. Since the late Minis
ter had chosen to charge tuc com
mittee, he proposed to carry the war
into Africa. This petition was part
of the frauds that characterized
everything connected with the vol
cano road, Besides ttie unlawful
manipulation of prison labor,
there had been horses and
carts sent to the volcano road
from tho roads and bridges of Ho
nolulu, charging them to the volcano
road without crediting them to the
Honolulu roads and bridges. He
held in his hand a detailed ( state
ment of such irregular transfers
which could be corroborated by en
quiry of the Road Supervisor. The
late Minister promised those parties
that ho would insert an item to repay
them in the Appropriation Bill, but
be did not insert an item although
this bill was prepared by himself.
Mr. Thurston made one mistake he
thought he would now be ,in the
House to carry this thing through.
The speaker nsked to be excused
from voting on the loan item.
Noble Burchardt did not think
there was a moral obligation to pay
this money if the House had decid
ed not to continue the road. But
since the House had voted money
to carry on the road, there should
be a fair valuation made of the
wotk done, and an item insortod to
pay for it.
The item paused.
Noble J. M. Horner called atten
tion to the recommendation of tho
select committee, to insert S5Q00 for
n survey of the proposed Puna road.
He moved it pass.
Rep. Nawnlii moved an amend
ment to insert 850U0 for repairs to
tho old Puna loud. The pooplu of
Puna did not cuio much for the pro
poucd now road, hut it was Import

The amendment carried.
Rep. Apiki moved to insert 810,
000 for the purchase of Peter Lee's
road to the ".olcino.
Rep. Brown asked if an offer had
not been made to sell tlie road for
$8000. If so, ho would move to in
Noblo Macfarlane thought that
10,000 should ho appropriated,
and, if the Minister of Interior
found that such an offer had been
made, be need not pay more than
Noble Walker wanted informa
tion as to the intent of the moiion.
If it was intended to insert the item
and leave the expenditure to the dis
cretion of the Minister of Interior,
he was willing to ote for it.
Rep. Nnwohi was in favor of in
serting 810,000 aud leaving it to
the discretion of the Minister.
Noble Parker said members were
talking about 810,000, and 88000,
and 85000, who had never been over
the road. The road was 24 miles
from Punaluu to the Volcano House,
whereas the volcano road from Ililo
wai 30 miles. At the rate of what
the llllo road cost, this road would
have cost 880,000. It would not to
right to beat this poor man (Lee)
out of his work, und 10,000 was
not too much for the road.
The Secretary read the report of
the committee, favorable to pur
chase of the road.
Minister Spencer rend a letter
bearing on the subject, from the
Hawaiian Agricultural Co., caution
ing His Excellency against buying
the road from Peter Lee, a" the land
was not in his possession. The
Minister said he thought he would
have no diflloully in obtaining the
franchise from the company,
Noble J. M. Horner thought the
committee should be cautions in
dealing with this matter. It was
something like the $800 asked for a
Chinaman who built a road on his
own account. Mr. Lee was an ex
cellent gentleman who kept a hotel
atPUnalnu, and in conjunction with
the steamship company built the
road on his own hook. If he and
the company could get tho Govern
ment to buy this road aud keep it in
repair, it would prove a very good
speculation for them. The Govern
ment road for some distance rm
parellel to this road, only a few
yards he thought. The road had
been built on speculation, without
.Government authority or public es
timates, and this House should not
pay for it.
Rep. Rosa had looked into the
question of title, and advised Mr.
Lee to consult an altornej. It
would be impossible for Mr. Lee to
have exclusive benefits from the
road, without putting toll men on it
at each end. The public would use
the road anyway, and the country
should pay its cost. He could sale
ly say that the reason to influence
Mr. Lee in taking this course was
bis inability to maintain the road
The account of his expenditure
exceeds somewhat the amount
recommended by the committee.
The toad was well built in hopes
of increasing the, tiavel on that
side, particularly while the liilo
road was in course of construction.
Strangers could reach the VoIcjiio
by this route without a guide. It
was a road that connected with the
.existing and proposed roads in Kau.
The speaker answered various ques
tions by members.
Rep. Brown thought, after hear
ing the letter from the lessees of the
land, the House ought to be care
ful. I hey might have the hind
taken from them after 13 years, and
the owners then put tolls on the
road. The nigger had come out the
fence in this case, showing himself
very plainly. The member for Wai
alua had said that a good deal of this
money would go to the Inter-Island
Steam Navigation Co., to whom Lee
was indebted in a considerable
amount. After this information and
the letter be feared he could not
vote for the item.
Rep. Bush did not approve of this
itom any more than of that just
passed. Both roads seemed to be
more in the interest of steamship
companies than anybody else. But,
having voted large amounts to the
Hilo road, ho did not see tiic justice
of refusing a much smaller amount
for a road serving the very same
purpose. It would have been wiser
to have purchased this road than to
have built the other.
Noble Burchardt wished to con
gratulate the hou. Noble flora Ha
makua and the hou. member from
the first district of Honolulu on the
improvement in their cyebight with
in the last half hour. Ho could not
see how they saw a nigger in the
fence in Kau when they did not see
one in the Hiio fence. There were
a Btcamehip company, hotel keeper,
and livery stable owners at Hilo
benefited by the Volcano road 011
that side, yut these mumbeis saw
nothing in that fact although so
quick to descry the nigger In tho

sion from personal inspection was
that the road was cheaply built. It
might be well to vole tliu S10,000,
but the Minister hliould look into
the matter before spending the
The item passed at $10,000.
Rep. Piichaolt! moled to insert
82885.JC in payment of Ahlo's
rhdm, as bondsman for the con
tractor who built the Nuuaiui re
servoir Rep. Brown was chairman of the
committee on this item. The Min
ister of the Interior advertised for
tenders for building a reservoir at
Luakalm. The lowest biddeis weie
two Chinaman, and Ahlo became
their bondsman. One of the con
tractors skipped out, the weather
was bod, wages went up, there was
more rock than expected, and the
remaining contractor wanted to be
relieved of the contract. A bonus
of S500 was offered the Miuister to
release the contractor. The com
mittee considered it would be a bad
precedent to pay contractors losses
inclined on public woiks. If Ahlo
had made double the pi outs antici
pated, he would not have paid the
excess to,, the Government. The
passage uf this item would cause
contractors to bid low in hope of
being recouped for any loss. They
had another petition of the same
kind, that for repaying the loss to
the contractor for the Punchbowl
road. If they voted this money to
the Chinaman, they would have to
give the Punchbowl road contractor
the same favor.
Minister Brown could not otefor
this item, for the reasons just ad
vanced, also because of the injury
likely to be done by the piecedenl
to bonafide contractors and work
men who were able to make correct
estimates. If they started such u
practice, it was impossible to say
where it would stop.
Rep. Nawahi wanted to know how
tho Minister could account for the
810,000 paid Walker &. Redward for
the Punchbowl road.
Minister Brown We have not
paid anything. I would like to
know how the lion, member, after
condemning our predecessors for
doing a certain thing, wants us to
do the very same. That is refresh
ing! Noble Pua had visited the reser
voir and found that good work was
done. The late Ministry had paid
Walker & Redward a large extra on
a contract, and he could not see
why the precedent should not be
followed in this case.
Rep. Paehaole cited the Walker
& Redward matter, where nearby
81000 was paid over the contract;
also the Peter Lee road pin chase.
This reservoir was a permanent pub
lic work and the same principle ad
mitted in those other matters should
apply to it.
Noble von Tempsky moved the
committee rise. Lost.

ister adveiliied tor lenders and Un
