Wr.nT.si)AY, Oct. 22.
Tho House resumed at 1:10.
Rep. Kickatd, resinning llic de
bute on the Likclikc claims, said he
believed nil the hills should he paid,
but he did not think this House was
honestly called to pay them. Tho
country paid for state funcrali, but
the one in question was expensive
beyond all reason. It was custom
ary with many people to make all
they could on such occasions. They
regarded it as a windfall and forced
goods on the too willing purchasers
at fancy prices. He had heard it
claimed, although ho could not
prove it, that if some of these claim
ants wore paid 20 percent they
would feel themselves well paid.
He was inclined to vote against pay
ing any part of these claims for the
sake of nutting a slop to this whole
sale forcing of goods on the public.
It was nothing short of a swindle.
He would, however, await furt'ier
discussion by members better post
ed than himself on the facts, hoping
that if the claims were hot struck
out altogether they would be large
Rep. Waipuilani moved that the
minority report, recommending in
definite postponement of the claims,
be adopted, lie understood there
was a suit brought by one of the
claimants, and the Court threw the
claim out. He was here at the time
of the funeral and it was understood
then that Mr. llayselden issued all
orders. Many people got whole
pieces of calico and other goods out
of the line of mourning altogether.
The fact that people were getting
goods not suited to the occasion
should have put the storekeepers
on their guard. Any man who
wanted to do what was right, and
did not want to take advantage of
the circumstances, would nave in
quired whether it was right to sell
white suits and charge them to fun
eral expenses. The Supieme Court
in Banco had condemned one of
these claims, and the Constitution
said that a decision of the Supreme
Court in Banco should be final and
binding. They were establishing a
dangerous precedent. Many claims
had appeared this session and, the
more such were entertained, the
more they would increase in the fu
ture, until the Legislature would be
called the final Court of Appeal.
lie look this stand although some
of the claimants frequently gave
him credit as a storekeeper.
Noble Widemann asked whether
there was an stipulation attached
to the appropriation of 10,000 last
session, that those taking their pro-po-tion
of the. amount should give a
receipt in full for all claims.
Rep. Kahookano said there was
such a stipulation, and all the claim
ants icf used to take the money on that
condition, except J. T. Waterhouse,
who was paul his proportion without
giving the required receipt in fu'I.
Noble Widemann said that was
just what he was driving at. The
stipulation was enforced in the case
of all the claimants except John
Thomas Waterhouse. That was the
transaction. It was making fish of
one anu tiesn ot anotner. lie nau
been in the country some few years
and knew that the nation always
paid for the funerals of high chiefs.
The only exception he remembered
was that of Mrs. Bishop, whose hus
band was rich enough to dispense
with such alms. In view of the fact
stated it was reasonable that mer
chants should have given credit for
goods on account of the funeral ex
penses of Princess Likelike.
Noble Hind Where was her hus
Noble Widemann replied that
her husband had recently
made an ass'sment and
had not a dollar with which to bless
himself. The decision of the full
Court referred to, as he recollected,
was simply that the case did not lie
against His Majesty's estate. These
claims would be acknowledged by
the honest sense of the country and
would be paid if not tlii- year,
next; if not next year, some year
later they would he paid as sure
as the sun that shone above. He
did not believe in kicking A because
B kicked him, but would kick B
back if he was able.
Rep. Paehaolc was a member of
last Legislature, when an appropria
tion was made for the bettlement of
these claims. He now saw the same
claims before this House. As a
native Hawaiian he thought the
claims should be paid. The mer
chants had given the credits on tho
strength of the traditional custom of
tho nations paying tho expenses of
funerals of high chiefs. Several ap
piopriations had been made this si-s-sion
to pay claims that would not be
recognized in a court of law.
Rep, Brown said the claims pre
sented to the previous Legislature
amounted to 8i)0,!i:i7.M. Those
presented this session amounted to

It appeared that six or seven per
sons took on themselves to order
goods for the funeral, and when
they ran the bills up to 815,000, or
ders after that were given in the
name of His Majesty. There was
no resolution of tho Privy Council,
no Cabinet resolution, no authority
from the husband, or from any ex
ecutor or tiustco. for incurring all
theso'debts, and he submitted, as a
matter of business, that, when
goods were being bought amounting
to thousands of dollars in value, it
was incumbent on persons receiving
those orders to inquire whether
there was" any authority, and if
there was not such authority then
they sold the goods on credit at
their own peril. The Volcano road
was not a parallel case as had been
represented. In that case the coun
try received a quid pro quo for the
money, whereas, in the case of this
funeral, there was the most reckless
waste and goods were bought which
had no connection with a funeral,
such as baby clothes and light ap
parel. Minister Peterson said there were
two points involved, first, that of
legality ; secondly, the nature of the
claims. He would not speak of the
legal question. If the claims were
all based on orders for mourning
goods, the question would have
a different status before this
House. If it could be ascer
tained how much was incurred legiti
mately for the funeral expenses he
might vote for that amount, but un
der the circumstances he could not
conscientiously vote for the item as
proposed by the majority of the
committee. It seemed to him that
tlic claimants were pleading the
baby act in asking for payment of
these debts, when they knew in fur
nishing those baby clothes, etc.,
that they were committing fraud.
Rep. Ilalstead had presented the
minority report and no member had
more desire to honor the Royal
Family than he. He reported
against the claims because it was
clear that they were largely based
on goods that had nothing to do
with the funeral. Rep. Rosa had
been pleased to refer to him as the
foster son of the hon. Noble from
Maui (Baldwin). Although this
was not correct, he should consider
its truth as anything but a disci edit.
Noble Hind Yes, he's the best
member in this House.
Noble Widemann quoted from the
report of the committee of last ses
sion the statement of expenses of
state funerals, in support of his
argument that the merchants were
justified in giving credit because of
the national custom.
Minister Brown regarded the mat
ter as having been so fully canvass
ed that, in Biblical language, they
stank in the nostrils of the people.
He was sui prised at the position
taken by Noble Widemann, after the
attitude he had assumed with regard
to the Volcano road. The payment
of these claims would amount to
saying that people could go into the
stores and buy baby clothes or
whatever they pleased at the ex
pense of the Government. A large
part of these expenditures was for
fattening up a lot of people wLo
came down to attend the funeral.
Rep. Lucas gave a statement of
the preliminary arrangements made
for the funeral, which were in
chaigc of Mr. Ilayselden, the pur
chasing agent of the Government.
It was true that the amount was
high. The baby clothes were per
haps not so much out of place as
claimed, as many children took
part in the funeral procession. Also,
with regard to while clothes, he un
derstood that members of the house
hold service weio dressed m whito
at the funeral. The highest bill
was about 80000 and tho seller
might reasonably havo supposed
that he was supplying all the mourn
ing goods. He would st'pport the
Rep. Nawahi asked members who
had spoken whether or not they con
sidered the bills legal. (Rep. Lu
cas 1 do.) If they were not legal
he could not understand the pre
sent objectors as having voted last
seniloii to pay part of them, Did

bent on them to clean up, as Her
cules cleaned the Augean stables.
That gen. Ionian of antiquity clean
ed the stables by turning a river
into them, and this House should
turn a stream from the treasury on
Ihc corruption f om the former re
gimes. (Laughter.) Were these
bills to be rejected because some of
tho claimants were Jews? lie
thought Russi.t was the only coun
try that still oppressed tho Jews.
