Committee of the whole resumed
at I ::if).
Hep. Nawnhi slated the question
to be whether the House should
adopt the majority report or pass
the bill. It was a question whether
the voiie of tho people Was lo be ic
garded The Minister of Flounce
had said that we were policed by
foreign naval vessels to our dis
grace. Pel haps the Minister was
ashamed, because of the false re
ports that bad brought the Charles
ton back here. That was a disgrace
to the authors of those reports, per
haps also to the Ministiy, but it
was no disgrace to the native Ha
waiians. Tito Minister declined to
answer a question presented by Mr.
Kalita, as to the tiuth of lepoits of
foreign interference, but one of the
Ministers has told round (own that
there had been such intciferencw
His Kxcelluncy thought that per
haps Article :2() was a stumbling
block to some members. There
was no argument in that, for, prob
ably, His Excellency left the first
Reform Cabinet in order to get back
now to the loaves and fishes. The
canvassing for votes to defeat the
Ministry had nothing to do with the
question bcfoie the House. The
bon. member fiom Kona was cor-
lect in saying he had not been sent
here to do away with the Constitu
tion, and that all of them had taken
an oath to support the Constitution.
But those who advised them in that
way did not act so in 1887, when
the King and Judges of theisupieme
Court, who were bound in the same
way to support the Constitution,
joined in abrogating it and promul
gating the new Constitution. This
movement was not to make mere
amendments to the Constitution, but
to make an entirely new one, so that
the arguments did, not apply to it.
If a vote was taken to-morrow on
the question of having a new Consti
tution, a large majority of the peo
ple would be in favor of the mea
sure. The Minister of Finance bad
said this was an after-thought, but
he held in bis hand tbe platform of
the National Reform Party, wherein
a revision of the Constitution was
favored. The Cabinet had promised
a meeting of National Reform mem
bers in conference with them to sup
port a measure for a constitutional
revision. Now that the Ministry
oppose the project he had no more
confidence in them. Those who
wanted a new Constitution in 1887
called a meeting, armed themselves,
and forced the measure on the King.
Even if the few non-voters said to
be on the petitions were struck out,
there would still be left 1.")00, or a
majority of the voters, in favor of a
convention. His Excellency had
stated that the people had more
privileges than before in the election
of Nobles. That was true, but the
rich man had two votes to the poor
man's one. The Constitution also
gave the franchise to the ignorant
and stupid Portuguese. The com
mittee had rung in the Chinese
question which had , nothing to do
with the matter. They cited a great
man' judicial decisions, although
not oue of them could tell from what
book or page the quotations were
taken. Their inspiration was bor
rowed. If tbe House bad no author
ity to pass the enabling act, how
was the first Constitution obtained?
Then when Kamchameha V. failed
to get a Constitution from tho con
vention, he dismissed it and gave
the people a Constitution himself.
Theie was no law forbidding him to
do so. Neither was there any law
forbidding the calling of a conven
tion now. All the talk about possi
ble disturbance was started for a
purpose. If there would be any
thing of the kind, it would come
from another element than tho
natives, for the Ilawatians were a
Noble Kauliane asked, if this was
the voice of the Hawaiian people,
bow was the Constitution oppressive?
Ie was a Hawaiian and if there was
anything oppressive in the Constitu
tion he would feel it. Previous to
1886 the people would ask for money
to make roads, but they would only
get items in the Appropriation Hill,
tho money would be spent for some
thing else. Things contiLiied in that
way, going on from bad to worse,
with an excess of power in the hands
of the King and his Ministers, until
the country was getting into foreign
complications and its credit was fast
disappearing. It was time some
thing should have been done, or, if
that state had continued, by the
time for the Legislature of 1888 to
assemble there wopld have been no
moro Hawaiian Kingdom, While he
did not appiovo of the means adopt
ed ho was bound to acknowledge
that great good had come from the
movement. A good deal was said
0 bout tho dear old Constitution, but
tho new o))u increased the privileges
of native Hawallatis, Tiiuy wiiro

the convention would spend 800,000
or 10,000 more. All this tiouble
and expense would bo for the sake
of making a few amendments in the
Constitution. It would, moreover,
lie a bad precedent. Perhaps next
session there would be a cry raised
for another Constitution, mid thus
we might have a new Constitution
ex cry two yeais. For these reasons
ho must vote ngainst the bill.
Noble Baldxvin said that the Con
stitution being the basis of all laws,
it xvas a matter not to be treated
lightly. The United States had a
xvrittcn Constitution, while that of
Client Britain xvas unxvritten. In nil
the time since the Amciican revolu
tion, oxer one hundred yeais, there
had only been some fifteen amend
iiienH made to the Constitution of
the United Stales. At the revolu
tion of 1887 the Constitution xvas
not abolished, butonly a few changes
made in it. The Government had
become so corrupt that it was lull
that nothing but a revolution would
save 4I1P country, and the people
rose en maso and overthrew the
Government and changed the Con
stitution. Tho form of Ciovcinmi'iit
xvas not changed but such alterations
were made as gaxe us cnnsliuilioual
government. It xvas true that this
xvas done by a revolution, and some
held that such extreme measures
weie not necessary. None of them
xveie sworn to support the old Con
stitution, but eveiy member bad
taken an oath to support the present
Constitution. This Constitution pro
vided means for lie own amendment.
The opinions of Judge Cooley, one
of the greatest authorities on consti
tutional law, quoted by the majority
of the committee, xx'cre to the effect
that a Constitution could only be
amended legally under its own pro
visions for that purpose. Knglish
authorities supported this principle.
It was therefore concluded that any
other mode of changing the Con
stitution would be revolutionary.
He failed to see serious neces
sity for changing the Constitution.
There were certain amendments ask
ed xvhich he would support in the
shape of legislatix'c enactments. It
had been well said on the floor of
the House that the country never
xvas more prosperous than under the
present Constitution. Public im
provements and the causes of educa
tion and health were never, so well
promoted. Agitators had repie
sented to the native people that they
xvcre oppressed, that they xvere de
pi ived of their lights by the present
Constitution, all of xvhich xxas false.
The committee had evidence that
the petitions for a convention were
all prepared in Honolulu and sent
to the country for signature, and it
had been stated to the House that a
large pioportion of the signatures
were of others than voters. What
member of tbe House bad been ask
ed by a majority of his constituents
to support a constitutional conven
tion? He had not been asked lo do
so, although many natives voted for
him. One member of the committee
had informed them that he had not
been requested by a single constitu
ent to support the measure. It
might have been expected that the
native Haxvaiians xvould have ob
jected to the sudden chahge made
in tho Constitution, but he could
say that the more intelligent of tbe
natives weie coining more and more
to see that the changes xvere
good ones, that they enlarged the
lihei ties of the people without con
taining anything derogatory lo the
dignity of the King. This xvas the
fust time the Hawaiian Legislature
xxas ever asketl to provide for a con
stitutional convention, and it was a
rather dangerous precedent to pro
pose. There xvould be at least three
elections required if the bill passed,
and the expenditure xvould not be
less than $7f,000. There xvas noth
ing in the desired amendments to
justify such an expenditure of time
and money. The convention xx'ould
throw the country into political tur
moil, check the business of the Gov
ernment and of the country, and
drive capital waiting to be invested
in the country elsewhere. Could
they stand all this heat and this re
volution? for it could not bo called
anything but a revolution. He xvas
of white skin, but considered him
self as true a Hawaiian as stood on
the lloor of the House. He was
born in this country, had his means
invested here, and expected to die
here. . There xvas no amendment re
quired to the Constitution which
could not be effected within tho
terms of the Constitution itself.

mittee rise and ask leave to sit again
