Ren. Nawnlii cmitiiiucd
of inaiks on the rcolntiim of
.Minister Riowii, l)eforc tlicpcak
er was interpielcd, called him to ol
der. He was limiting UicvilcMt mis
statements as the President would
know when he hoaul tlium inter
preted. Rep. Nuwahi was interpreted as
having said that when Air. Kahiu
asked about the interference of for
eign diplomatic representatives, the
Minister of Foreign All'aira could
not answer for himself hut the .Min
ister of Finance spoke for him, de
clining to give any communications
that had passed from foreign repre
sentatives. The Minister of Foreign
Affairs promised n paity caucus his
assistance to the constitutional con
vention hill, hut worked, against the
measure, outside and inside of the
IloiihC. The Minister after having
refused the information to the
Mouse gave it to outsiders, and any
Minister doing such a thing ought,
not to have the confidence of the
House. A short time after the Min
istry took olllcc it was understood
certain olllcials wore to he removed,
and a certain ollicial on Maui was
invited to town to lake a certain
olllcc, hut the Cabinet disagreed
hud the intending incumbent made
two or three trips to town for no
thing. Some defenders of the Cabi
net might say that they had not
been long enough in olllce to show
what they could do. They had
been tluce months in olllce, which
was ample time fordoing something.
That was idle talk. They had been
asked whether they would bring in
another Appropriation Rill, and
they said they would stick to the
bill of their predecessors. He did
not know what the King would say
when he saw the bill run up to live
millions, without any loan bill or
other measure to bring the revenue
up to the proposed expenditures.
As the hon. Xoble from Koliala said
the other day, the Ministers sat
there doing nothing. The bill for
the relief of I lis Majesty should have
come from the Cabinet. They wait
ed till some oilier member brought
in a measure, when sometimes they
voted for it and sometimes left the
room. The Ministry had presented
no policy on the Chinese question.
There was a good deal of talk about
warships being here to prevent dis
turbance, but no trouble would
originate from the native Ilawaiians.
The planters did notwantthe country
to lose its independence. The Minis
ter of Foreign Affairs got up to-day,
for the fourth time he thought. It
required a great deal of prodding
to induce the Ministers to stand up.
He would not even give the Minis
ters another three mouths, hut want
ed a Ministry that would state their
policy and back it up.
Rep. Brown said generally in the
introduction of an important resolu
tion of this kind, the grounds of
non-confidence were specifically
stated. There was nothing in this
resolution on which the House
could base a want of confidence in
the Ministry. The complaint lie
had heard so far amounted to charg
ing the Ministers with not having
come into the House and taken the
money hag3 into their own hands,
and telling the representatives of
the people to go home and they
would spend the money according
to their own pleasure. The princi
ple of our system of government
was that the Ministers had nothing
to do with the expenditure of money
except as under the direction of this
House. Tho older one grew the
more he knew, and he had learned
something new from the mover of
the resolution. That was that the
labor hill emanated from the Cabinet.
The fact was he wrote that bill with
his own hand and the Cabinet knew
nothing about it. If the clause re
garding a convention with China
went into the bill, the Ministers
would lie hound to carry it out. It
had been complained that Ministers
did not stay in their seats. If they
did' not he did not wonder at it, on
account of the amount of bosh and
rot pouring from the mouths of sonic
lion, members. Then it was urged
against the Ministry that they had
not brought in a loan bill. We did
not want a loan bill. 11 tho Minis
ters had brought in a loan hill, he
would probably vole on Ihe same
side with the hon. member for Hilo.
The speaker described the ooiiblruc
tlon of the Appropriation Rill, Sue.
1 being items against the ordinary
revenue of the kingdom, mid Sec. h
items to comu out of any other mon
ey in the treasury, from llm loan
fund and Postal Savings Hank.
Another complaint was that thu
Ministers did not take tho planter
on their backs, Introducing all their

fylt. I havo supported every bill
that has emanated from the National
Reform Paity which I considered
honorable ami which accorded with
my ideas ol right. This measure
now before the House Is notieally a
paity measure, but 1 think has been
brought forwaid by certain members
of the National l'e'form Part, to fur
ther their own ends. It is an old
saying and a hue one, "thai nothing
is certain in Ibis woild but, death
and taxes." Now, Mr. President,
if L were ceilaiu thai a new Minis
try would heller Ihe condition of
the country, financially and com
mercially, I would hold up both
hands in support; but, Mr. Presi
dent, wneii an uncertainty is oeiore
me, in tho shape as this incasiiie is
now, I cannot consistently vote for
it. Are we hcie to act the part of
children, or are we men assembled
here for the welfare of our adopted
country, and with many members of
this House their own country V This
changing of the Ministry is a retrograde-
movement, and sought, to he
made at the wrong time. This Min
istry has only been in olllce a little
over four months, and have done
some good, if not all that was ex
pected ; give them time to compre
hend their situation as guardians of
the country's honor and tho coun
try's interests and progress. Mr.
President, I vote no.
Rep. h'iekard said it gave him a
great deal of pleasure to hear the
sentiments just uttered by the hon.
Noble on the other side. He fully
endorsed his declaration that he
would hold up both hands for the
dismissal of the Ministry if that
would promote the interests of the
country. He stood there bound to
no sect or party and 011I3 sought the
interests of his constituents and of
the whole country. During the
time that he had been a member of
the House he had tried to be con
sistent in regard to all measures.
There were no charges in that reso
lution on which they could base a
vote of want of confidence, lie
could assure the House that the
leading industry of the coiintiy was
suffering severely from the lack of
The President reminded the
speaker that the Ministry were not
charged with anything on that,
ground 111 the resolution.
Uep. Richard said lie was refer
ring to criticisms that he heard on
the lloor. He failed to see anything
serious in the charge that the Minis
try had not dismissed certain olll
ccrs, thus acting contrary to the de
sires of some members of the House.
No business enterprise was improv
ed by frequent changes in its man
agers, nor was any Government of
fice bettered b' frequent changes in
the incumbent. He should vote
strongly against the resolution.
Rep. Paeliaolc understood the re
solution to allege two causes for
want of confidence. One was that
the Ministers had no policy, and tho
other that they were weak. The
citizens of Ililo at a meeting asked
the late Ministry to state their policy
and the Ministry responded with
such a statement. Shortly after
this Ministry look olllcc they were
asked for their policy, and the Min
ister of Finance promptly announced
their policy to be one favorable to
national independence and to inter
nal improvement. He would leave
it to the House to say whether or
not they had carried out that policy.
As to the charge that the vacillation
of the Ministry had retarded the
business of the session, he could
not see that there was any ground
therefor. The session had been
prolonged on account of having had
a great deal of important business to
despatch, but partly on account of
the talking proclivities of several
members on the other side, lie was
elected as an independent member,
being therefore bound to no party.
As the Ministers having failed to
help in passing a constitutional con
vention bill, he did not see in that a
ground of want of confidence. Per
haps he had forfeited the confidence
of the mover himself, for he had not
supported that bill. Regarding the
labor bill, it had not yet come be
fore the House. They did not know
how the Ministers would vote on it,
and in any case the Ministers could
not make it a law without concur
rence of the House. The principal
part of the attack had been directed
against the Minister of Foreign Af
fairs, who was said to be soft and
compared to iuau. Now luau was
soft material, but sometimes the
eater of it had a warm lime.
Minister Drown said it was doubt
ful if any Ministry had taken olllce
under more peculiar circumstances
than the present one. They had
held their scats so long perhaps be
cause they were a little disturbed
by both parties, Jt was true the
House had hud a long tiiimof it,
hut the Ministers had met with a
good deal of obstruction. Ah to the
heaping up of the Appropriation
Mill, that had been effected by llm
iiitiinhei'ri themselves, none of whom
had exceeded the hon, member mak

with a decidedly contrary character.
That, they weic the authors of Sec.
Ifi of the labor bill had already been
exploded by nn hon. member. The
hon. member for Kbolaupoko, out
of that, fertile imagination of his
which was his source in every time
of trouble, staled that the Cabinet
had sent an agent to China to nego
tiate a treaty whereby the country
should be Hooded with Chinese.
There was not a scintilla of truth in
the statement. The hon. member
from Koolaupoko made a great han
dle of the Chinese question, but
when a hill was up to relax the Chi
nese Restriction Act the hon. mem
ber found it convenient to bo ab-
mmiI. And he found, on reference
to the record, that the hon. Incmhcr
for the fifth district (Wilcox), who
had also assailed the Ministry on
the same ground, voted for the'hlll.
The hon. member for Ililo accused
Ihein of not talking much, if he
talked as much as the lion, member
bad, by this time he would be a lit
subject for ihe lunatic asylum.
Then he accused them of having
failed to biing in a loan bill. There
was no need of a loan bill. The re
venue would come very near meet
ing the ordinary expenditures, and
as lo those coining out of loan mon
eys they had half a million in the
tieasury, which would go a good
way toward meeting appropriations
111 that class. Had he been able to
take summary measures for check
ing the increase in the Appropria
tion Dill he should have done, so. In
fact the Ministry had opposed in
creases except in a few cases where
they found them necessary 011 inves
tigation. He opposed the steamer
subsidies in question, because he
was opposed lo subsidies on princi
ple. It was true, he voted for a
subsidj' to the Oahu railway, be
cause he believed it. was a reproduc
tive work from which the country
would greatly benefit. They de
served the thanks of the House, he
thought, for not supporting the con
stitutional convention bill. (Hear,
hear!) He did not think they were
open lo the charge of neglecting the
business of the I louse. For his own
part he had been as. punctual and
regular in his attendance as any
member of the House. The Minis
ter of the Interior had a large am
ount of olllcc business to engage his
attention, but whenever his presence
was required lie was in his scat in
the House. The same might bo said
of the Attorney-General, and of all
it might lie claimed that thc3' were
in their places when required, voting
on the right side as their judgment
Rep. Bush maintained that the
Minister of Finance was only a limb
of the Cabinet. The Premier should
have been there directing the busi
ness of the counlrj. They had an
Appropriation Bill twice or three
times as large as the revenue, and
if the Ministry could not rightly di
rect the financial policy of the coun
try of what use were they? Under
our system of government the Minis
ters should only be in the House to
give information. These Ministers
voted first on one side and then on
the other, on important questions,
thus creating discord in the House
so that agreement could not be
reached. If that was not vacilla
tion lie did not know what wa3. The
member for Koolaupoko discovered
a treaty, the existence of which was
denied by the late Government. It
wa3 there all the same, however,
and he believed that Mr. Afong
went to China the other day with a
commission in his pocket, also the
draft of a convention. Perhaps the
Minister of I'inance was not aware
ol it, but it was known to a portion
of the Ministry. There was much
difference between Chinese and Jap
anese immigration. Onco the Chi
naman got his foot in the country
he could not be dislodged. That
was one reason for his advocating n
constitutional convention, as consti
tutional amendment was the only
means of coping with the question.
The Ministry took olllce on the un
derstanding that they would support
a constitutional convention. Per
haps the Minister of Finance had not
pledged himself to the measure, but
the Minister of Foreign Affairs was
entrusted with the formation of a
Cabinet on that understanding.
Minister Peterson pleaded not
guilty to the indictment. ,As to not
having a policy, it was unusual 111
this country for the Ministry to have
one. They were charged with vot
ing on different sides of particular
questions. What would the lion,
member have in the Cabinet one
man and three dummies? That was
to be implied fumi his charge. Ho
admitted that on Government mea
sures, or party measures, or inea
suics of great importance to the
country, thutlhu Cabinet should be
a unit, it had been so, he submit
ted. One gi eat ground of accusa
tion against Ihein was that the Cab
inet were not in sympathy with the
mechanics on the Chinesu' question,
Thu fact was that in relation to every
measure bearing on that question
the Cabinet was 11 unit In favor of
