Nohle Cralthe wished to make him-,
self stiaiht on the epiestion. Mem
hcis of the National Rcfonn Party
were pledged to support the pai ty's
platform. Nothing was said during
or soon after the election about a
constitutional convention. This is
sue was raised later. He could not
suppoit the hill without violating
Ins oath, lie would support any
amendments that would not con II id
with the fundamental law.
Rep. White took the ground that
the hill was not contrary to the Con
stitution. Many members had given
their opinions that the bill was un
constitutional. In the veto con
troversy the flower of the bar held
that the King did not have an inde
pendent veto. S. R. Dole, A. S.
Itartwcll, J. A. Magoou, Jonathan
Austin, V. V. Ashfotd, 0. W. Ash
lord, L. A. Thm ston, W. A. Kin
ney, and W. U. Achi weio of that
view, hoi il turned out that the few
lawyers who opposed that view were
correct. Some members thought it
was no use talking, the bill would
be defeated anyway. He did not
think so. Possession was nine
points of the law. Let us test the
thing. Pass the bill second and
thiid reading, take il to the King,
get him to sign il, then take it up
there (to the Supreme Court) and
sec if it is constitutional. There
was not one there who was sure of
being in the House in 1802. He did
not sec what Rhode Island had to
do with this country. He was a
member of the church himself, and
believed there were others there,
but he would not mention names
for fear he would be accused of
personalities. He did not know why
members objected to passing tliu
bill unless it was because they were
afraid that it would stand the test.
Noble Baldwin, Mho said he had all
his interests in this country, ought,
if he had any regard for the wishes
of the natives, support the bill.
The talk about revolution and civil
war was not caused by the natives,
who were peaceable and law-abiding.
Oh, it was, said, if we get a
new constitution it will let us all
out! The foreign members were
disposed to do right toward the na
tives. He was partly of foreign
origin himself, his grandsire having
come from England, and he believ
ed foreign and native members
would do their best for the good of
the country. (Cries of "Ninaul")
Let them ninau. I have the floor.
Anybody that doesn't want to hear
me can get out and take the air.
This is the main question that the
people sent you here, to consider.
The present Constitution was gained
by unlawful mcans.j-vAt the first
election lie took the oath to support
this Constitution, but he believed he
committed perjury in doing so. The
oath was on his lips but not in his
heart. He took it to get the privi
lege of voting as a great many Ha
waiians did. When registering was
going on thc natives were strictly
questioned about their ability to
read and write, while foreigners
were readily accepted who could
only make a scrawl on paper like
Chinese characters. Here was a
Hawaiiamtoiling hard every day in
the year vat a dollar a day, but he
was not allowed to vote. Was th'i3
right? Good gracious ! They plead
ed with the foreign members, if
they were demigods they would
kneel to them, to give the natives
justice. They had souls as well as
white men. They were Christians
like the rest of them. The commit
tee o noted Webster, and Ulack-
stone, and Story, and Cooley against
this bill, but the House should pass
it nnd lot our own Supreme Court
decide the question. A short while
ago lie heard a gray-headed mem
ber say tliatllns constitutional con
vention was not heard of at the elec
tion. The same member had taken
part in party cauousses where the
matter was discussed, and was orfe
of the foremost in advocating this
very measure. lie liked to see con
sistency in members. It did not
look well for a member to agree to a
matter in caucus and tken go back
on it in the. House. Such members
went in 'swimming with them, and,
whenever they reached the shore,
they kicked the rest of them .and
told liciu to get out of the water
the best way they could. The ad
vocates of the bill would follow the
example of the foicigncis wanting
billets, who, when refused by the
Minister one morning, would turn
up smilingly the next morning. The
native members seemed to bo the
only onus Unit took an interest in
thitt subject. They were tho princi
pal speakers. Thin yliowed that llio
native people folt that they were
wronged by tlie present constitu
tion, It was ti no the hill was op.

amendment that the reports of tho
majority and minority of the select
committee be laid on the tabic with
the bill. As a good deal of lime had
been taken up with the discussion
lie would ask for the indulgence of
the House to make a few remarks.
Rep. Xawahi said the amendment
could not, be entertained.
The 1'iesident Yes, il can. The
amendment is before the House.
Noble Macfarlane piocecded: I
regard il as a very serious question
to change thu orgnnio law of the
land. Whatever objections there
may be to the present Constitution
it uni9t be remembcied that it was
pioclaimed by the constitutional
soveieign ol the country and the
people have sworn lo support it. I
am well aware that the constitution
Is faulty and needs amendment and
should be amended. Tho Ijrst ob
jection to it is purely sentimental
and rcgaids the manner in which the
constitution was obtained, but such
.grounds should fall away when we
come to consider the real in
terests of the country. Another
objection is that it was hastily pre
paid! by a few people. Tho ques
tion is, Shall we fall into the same
mistake? Tho oiganic law of tho
land is of such a nature that it
should be amended only with the
greatest caution and after the most
mature, deliberation, and only un
der the stress of the most urgent
necessity should it be set
aside altogether. The idea of
calling a Constitutional Convention
at tins time cannot but affect the
material well-being and inteicsts of
this country. Theic is ample, but
I claim, not too much tunc
to leliect upon, ui'( wcigli the
proposed amendments and the
desirability of accepting them.
But shall we fall into the same fault
of those who rushed through the
present constitution and risk the
adoption of the violent and illegal
methods of those who brought the
present constitution into existence?
The policy of pushing through a
convention in the pi esent condition
of strained political feelings would
have a tendency to keep alive and
intensify the disturbed slate of the
public mind, and would largely pre
vent the adoption of a just,
fair and . statesmanlike docu
ment. I am fully convinced
that the pi esent condition of things
will -be modified and softened
within the next two years,
so that a constitution at a
later time would accomplish those
results which it seems impossible to
obtain now. I am also firmly con
vinced that a few judicious amend
ments legally made and agreed
upon in this Assembly will
hasten the return of nor
mal political conditions and bring
about the result at present sought,
if they did not ultimately do
away with the necessity of a
future Constitutional Convention.
The commercial interest of Hawaii
and the demands of a laige number
of conservative business men should
receive the consideration ol
the paity at present in
power, before a stand is taken in
favor of any radical or immediate
change in the fundamental law of
the Kingdom. Roth of these interests
are likely to be antagonized by prema
ture action, whereas by authorized
amendments they will be protected
and at the same time harmonized
with the policy of the parly in
power. If these elements arc
to be antagonized it will pro
vent the end we are now striv
ing to obtain. With these
sentiments there is only one course
open to me, which is to oppose tho
idea of a convention at ' this
time and to ask my political asso
ciates to join me in thus promoting
the interests of safe and conser
vative constitutional government. I
renew my motion that the reports ot
this committee and the bill be laid
on the table, and I move the pre

question had been moved. It could
not be debated nnd no subsidiary
motion could be made to it.
The ayes and noes were ordered
to be called.

of the procedure.
Rep. Rush asked to bo excused.
The only duty of the House was to
receive the report.
The President Tho House may
decline to receive the report.
Rep. Hookano thought that what
the House was doing was contrary
to the rules. Il was unprecedented.
He wanted to vote against this bill
but did not want to countenance a
practice of that kind.
