Mondav, Oct. 20th.
The House resumed at 1 :40.
Hep. Blown moved in atnenclmont
to Noble Phillips' motion on the
Howler clniras, to insert $7000 for
work on Palace walls, and $1012.08
for work on Palace electric litjlit
Rep. Cummings was in favor of
paying the full amount of the claims,
$49,218.'ll. If the Government
promised Mr. Bowler tho job of re
turning the South Sea Islanders, he
should be paid whatever he lost on
account of that promise. He cited
n Supreme Court decision in his own
experience to show that the Court
wasjnot infallible. If the Government
had canicd out its contract with
Mr. Bowler, that gentleman would
be a rich man instead of a poor man
Noble J. M. Horner considered
the matter an important one, as if
the claims were granted there would
be innumerable claims in the future.
There was some foundation to the
electric light claim, but be was
doubtful about the wall claim. One
Superintendent of Public Works
gave the value of the work at $7000,
whereas another gave it at $4000.
Rather than be on the side of injus
tice he would vote for $7000 with
out interest, but be believed if the
work was measured it would be
found to be worth only $4000,
as the last Superintendent report
ed. The claim for the South
Sea Island laborers had no good
foundation. The fortune Mr.
Bowler lost on the transaction was
like that of the Western farmer, who
said he would be rich if he only had
enough hogs to eat all tho acorns in
the woods. j Mr. Bowler might just
as well have put down 500 laborers
that he might have recruited, when
imagining out. this claim against the
Government. Mr. Lydgate recruit
ed laborers in the South beas at
$250 each, and Mr. Turton at $125,
and if laborers cost Mr. Bowler as
high as these rates he would have
been all broken up. Mr. Bowler
was always unlucky with the Kala
kaua, as her previous owner was,
but that did not say that the Legis
lature should pay his debts. If the
lion, member for Hamakua had
made his motion $10 for the actual
number 113 of laborers to be car
ried he would vote for it'. He could
not vote hard dollars for imagina
tion. Rep. Bush thought there were
sufficient facts found by the com
mittee to show that a contract was
made in each case claimed. Mr.
Bowler had nothing to do with
with whether the President of the
Board of Immigration acted inde
pendently of the Board or not. If he
made a contract with Mr. Baldwin
or Mr. Horner to dc a certain ser
vice and he failed to do that service
either of those gentlemen would
jump down his throat to make him
pay for it. It was not Mr. Aholo
merely but His Majesty's Minister
of the Intel ior who had made this
contract with Mr. Bowler, and as
such he bound his successors in of
fice to contracts. If $49,000 was
excessive compensation for these
contracts, then the only question
with tlie House was the amount that
would be fair. Mr. Bowler was
ready to carry out his part of the
contract, and if he had becn(allowcd
to carry it out and lost on it he
would have no claim. But having
been prevented by the late Govern
ment from carrying out his part of
the contract, Mr.- Baldwin or Mr.
Horner had no right to say that the
claim was imaginative. He knew
personally as Minister to Samoa that
one part of the contract was bona
fide, because he had received letters
from this Government notifying him
that the Kalakaua was to bring coal
for the Embassy.
Rep. Rosa said the House seemed to
be agreed on the electric light claim
except as to interest. He would be
opposed on principle to interest, but
unfortunately signed tho report be
fore considering that point. Sup
porters of the Reform Ministry could
not condemn the payment of claims
not authorized by the Appropriation
Act, when on several occasions that
Ministry had made payments with
out any authority of law. There
wore the Makiki claims already re
fen ed to, where thoso gentlemen
put their hands in the tieasury to
pay themselves. Hon. members of
tho Reform Party had hotter be si
lent than to raise points whero that
party had been patticularly weak.
The late Minister of the Interior had
left testimony under his own hand
to illegal contracts niado by him.
Tho MadraB claim came up at a
tiino when there was great heat in
politics. Ho hud been informed
that the Madras claim would never
have been granted iu any other
country. Tho captain of the Ma
dras bioke tho regulations of this
port. When tho case came into

done under auspices of tho Govern
ment. The committee had positive
evidence from Mr. Spencer that
there were 220 laborers in Honolulu
to be returned, and the same witness
testified to arrangements having
been in progress for sending them
by the bark Kalakaua.
Noble Widchiann said Judge Dole
had declared this contract illegal.
Having done so he would have de
clared tho Thurston contract with
the Wilder Steamship Co. also illc-
,gal. It is not ltkcry that tho Su
premo uourt wouui declare one con
tract illegal because a native made
itand another not illegal because it
waB made by a white man. Tho
IIouso already knew his views on
the Thurston contract, but he had
not gone so lar as to oppose the pay
ing of those persons, It would be
nothing but justice, however, to
make them wait two years for their
money. Mr. Bowler having waited
his two years should be paid what
was justly due him.
Noble J. M. Horner wanted to
know whero the balance of the 220
laborers were, when the records of
the department showed only 113.
Noble Macfarlano soid they had
gone back to plantations. He be
lieved it was deliberately planned
that they should bo forced back to
Noble J. M. Horner asked how
Mr. Bowler lost $35,000 in the three
days between making the contract
and the abrogation of the contract
by the new Government. If there
had been a legal contract the only
claim he would have would be in the
shape of damages sustained.
Noble Baldwin said most mem
bers admitted that the Bowler con
tract was illegal. In the case of
the advances for the Volcano road,
the Minister made no contract. And
in the case of the Harrison contract,
the party of the second part went
into it with his eyes open. Mr.
Thurston broke no hnv in these ca
ses, but simply promised to lay the
matters before the Legislature. But
even if he did break the law,
two wrongs did not make a right.
It would be a fraud on the country
to pay $30,-000 or $40,000 on an ille
gal contract from which the country
had received no benefit.
Noble Widemaiin, referring to the
previous speaker's opinion that the
Volcano road contract was not
illegal, said if he defended
such a thing he would want to
shoot himself the next moment.
This House was the authority for
the spending of money, and for a
Ministry to spend money in antici
pation of a vote of the House was
equal to forcing the House, from n
sense of honor, to ratify an illegal
expenditure. The remarks of the
previous speaker as to fraud were a
fraud on the House.
Minister Cummins thought enough
had been said, and was in favor of
adopting the report of the commit
tee. Noble Phillips withdrow his
motion, which was renewed by Rep.
The ayes and noes were called on
the question of $49,218.44, which
