The llousu resumed at I :lf.
Thu President appointed, as the
select committee on the street rail
way bill, Messrs. Witlomanti, Pbil
lips, Peterson, C. Brown, and Cum
tilings. The order of the day being resum
ed, the immigration item, as amend
ed by Minister Peterson, passed.
Addition to .Honolulu Electric
Light System, SU.UOO.
Encouragement of uoitee uuuurc,
Inter-Island Cable, 25.000.
Hep. White moved to insert S2,
000 for encouraging the growth of
Kep. Richard moved to insert 2,
f)00 for aid to the telephone lines on
the island of Hawaii. The total
amount required to make a junction
between the Ililo and Hamnkua and
the Kohala lines, and the Ililo and
Kau lines, was four thousand dollars,
the distance to be covered being
The Secretary by direction read
the report of the committee, which
was against public aid being given
to any telephone companies, also the
petition from residents of the island
Noble J. M. Horner said they had
205 miles of telephone on the island,
but the lines were disconnected.
The House had just voted 825,000
for an inter-island cable, from which
the Government would get no more
benefit than from the telephone lines.
When the cable reached Hawaii it
would strike some point of these 2G5
miles of disconnected telephone
lines. The people only wanted
twenty-five hundred dollars to com
plete this system, against the
twenty-five thousand granted the
cable company. They offered to
pay one-half the cost themselves.
Where else in this great bill had
there been an item inserted, which
the people chiefly interested agreed
to duplicate? It had not been done
in tne case or tnc lvapioiaui iuik,
an institution for the benefit of the
people of Honolulu. He moved
that this respectful petition receive
respectful attention from the House.
Noble Wideinann was prepared to
give the petition respectful consider
ation but he did not believe in the
mciits of the request. He had done
all lie could to prevent the passage
of the cable subsidy, considering it
a wild-goose chase. Still the cable
was not for the benefit of Honolulu,
but for the whole country from Kau
ai to Hawaii. Man did not live on
business alone but must have recre
ation. He had no doubt that the
hon. Noble from Hamnkua himself
sometimes took a drive to the Park.
The first telephonic communication
on the islands was on Maui in 187G.
Noble Walbridge It was in 1879.
Noble Wideinann was sure he had
spoken over a telephone line on Maui
Minister Spencer It was an elec
Noble "Widemann recollected that
it was a telephone because he felt a
little grouty that they had not ask
ed him for a contribution.
Noble Walbridge Good gracious !
We'll go after it now.
Noble Widemann knew that Maui
had no assistance from the treasury
for its telephone system, although it
was as hard an island physically for
running the lines as any. It was no
use putting the item in anyway, as
there would not be money for the
Rep. Rickard was willing to take
the chances on there being money.
He read from the petition the argu
ment .that a complete system would
be useful in tracking criminals. The
House might at least show a kindly
disposition to the request of Hawaii.
Noble Walbridge spoke of the
Maui telephone system, which com
prised one hundred instruments and
was all. paid out of their own pock
ets. If Hawaii was to get this aid,
Maui should also get a subsidy to
Noble Marsdcn remarked that
Hawaii was ten times us large as
Maui and divided by mountains.
Its. telephone system if completed
would be a great public benefit.
Minister Brown moved to amend
the motion to read, "To enable the
Bell Telephone Co. to complete the
circuit of Oahu." (Laughter.)
Rep. Ripkard would vote for that
afterward if his motion passed.
Noble Hind stated that in 1882-3
the Government gave 87000 to the
Hawaii Railway Co. to build u tele
graph and telephone line. It cost
them only 81000. That waB tho way
some people wore treated. There
were popular petitions for public
benefits disregarded, while one man
could come in and got what he

Minister Brown said the President
of the Board of Education only
asked for 815,000 originally.
Rep. Ilookano explained that since
the item was increased by recom
mendation of the committee, two
new schoolhouses had been approved
Passed at $52,500.
Ret). White moved to insert, As
sistance to St. Andrew's Priory,
S5000. He expected every English
man in the House to vote for it.
Permanent improvements, board
ing schools, 10,000. Passed.
Minister Peterson moved that the
section pass as amended, which car
ried and n motion to reconsider was
Section 4. The following moneys
are hereby appropriated out of any
moneys in the Treasury, other than
moneys which may be derived from
the.soureos mentioned in Section 5 of
this Act, which shall not be used un
less, by reason of some unforeseen
contingency, the appropriations men
tioned in Section 1 of this Act shall
become exhausted :
Expenses of Supreme and Circuit
Com ts, 5000.
Expenses Steam Tugs, 5000.
Support of Prisoners, 15,000.
Maintenance Insane Asylum,
Quarantine Expenses, 20,000.
Leper Settlement, 25,000.
Pay of Police, 15.000.
Inci lentals, and Civil and Crimi
nal Expenses, 5000.
Coroners' Inquests, 1000.
Sees. 5 to G, inclusive, as amend
ed on second reading, passed, except
that an amendment to the latter
section was made on moti6n of Min
ister Brown, adding other salaried
officials whose salaries can be paid
until July 31, 1892.
Section 7. It shall be lawful for
the Minister of Finance to continue
to make payments in accordance
with the appropriations authorized
by Section 3 of this Act until the
31st day of July, A. P. 1892, un
less new appropiiations are made
before that date. Provided that no
payments shall be made on account
of any such item beyond the sura by
this Act appropriated.
Noble Widemann moved to strike
the section out. It was long the
practice of the country to have all
accounts closed, as near as possible,
on the 31st of March. Salaries
might continue to lie paid becau&e
they were strictly limited by law.
He doubted if there was any Minis
ter there who knew how much money,
had been spent under that section.
Rep. Brown spoke of the incon
venience that might accrue to con
tractors, and delay to important
public works, if the section was
struck out. The section was neces
sary for the protection of the pub
lic. Noble J. M. Horner wanted to
hear business reasons for striking
out the section. Six months of the
period were already gone. To strike
out the section would cut off another
six months before the next Appro
priation Bill was'passed.
Minister Brown said a could deal
could bo said on both sides. Perhaps
the limit could be changed to June
30th. Without the section a com
tractor who might have been delayed
by inclement weather would have to
stop work on March 31st. The
Ministrj' ought to have some lati
tude. Ho moved that the date be
changed to June 30th.
Noble Widemann considered that
a Minister's remedy for such con
tingencies as were mentioned would
be found in an indemnity bill.
The amendment carried and the
section passed as amended.
Sees. 8 and 9 passed.
Sec. JO. All and every contract
for constructing or repairing Public
Wolks amounting to $500, and for
furnishing material, provisions and
other supplies shall be awarded only
upon public advertisement far tend
ers Noble Widemann moved to add a
clause selling forth that all tho Min
isters shall bo forbidden to split up
a contract of 82000 into four or five
of less than $500 each so as to avoid
advertising for tenders. They had
an, Instance of that this morning,
and unless this ain.cndmeul carried
tho section would lie perfectly futile.
Rep, Ilookano moved tho limit
bo $250, as lie thought 8500 loo
Rep. Ptichaolu moved tho section
pass us in- tho bill.
Noble Wliloiminii said that if the
newspaper reporters hud taken down
his amendment his purpose would
