Tho House resumed at 1 MO, Nco.
a of the Constitutional Amendment
Hep. Cummlngs moved an amend
ment to make the income quulificn
tion SIOO a year.
Noble Wtdemann said there was
something in the objection thai any
body who had SG00 a year could
vote without being a subject. Those
who put that in the Constitution
should have a leather medal. But
the right had been accorded, and,
although he believed that "subject"
should be in the Constitution, the
proposed change would disfranchise
many people who wcic as good as
any in tho country and lie confess
ed to having a feeling of doubt as
to the proposed amendment.
Noble J. M. Horner Held that
some things might pinch some peo
ple, but if they were necessary those
affected must crin and bear it. If
those who had the right to , amend
llie Constitution, that is, the whole
people made this amendment it
would have to be accepted. His
opinion was that anybody who want
ed the privilcgo of voting should be
willing to accept the responsibility
of a subject. The proposal to re
duce the property qualification was
designed to take away certain of the
people's rights. One who voted un
der the $3000 qualification and con
sented to a S 1000 qualilication sur
rendered part of his rights, by con
ferring his right to vote on a larger
number than held it before and thus
puts so many more votes against his
own. Still, as the committee had
recommended the change, he, speak
ing on behalf of voters under the
$3000 property qualification, was
willing to surrender $2000 of the
qualification. They had as much
right to disfranchise others by mak
ing an educational franchise as by
reducing this property qualification.
One of these days he would be
ready to vote for doing an ay with
all qualifications except the ability
to read and write just as soon as
the country was ready for making
such an electoral test.
Noble Widemann exhorted mem
bers if possible to give a unani
mous vote in favor of this amend
ment, as it was the most important
one in the list. It was no use to
pass it by a majority of one, as the'
would want a two-thirds vote to put
it in effect next session.
Noble McCarthy was pledged to
a platform in the election, which
unlicld a liberal modification of the
property franchise. He believed
that the proposed reduction to $100
income would make a suflicient dis
tinction between the franchise for
Nobles and that for Representatives.
While he believed that the franchise
should only be accorded to subjects,
yet the right having been given to
others by the present Constitution
he thought they should not be depriv
ed of it. Therefore he would favor
an amendment to permit such an had
exercised the privilege to retain it.
The lion. Noble from Hamakua. in
saying his right was being taken
away, forgot that he only held that
light for the past three years. What
about the native deprived of rights
that he held from the first Constitu
tion up till 1887?
Noble Cornweli said the natives
dii not have such rights.
Noble McCarthy answered that
while the remark was true, neither
did the foreigner have any such
rights. lie would like to see the
day arrive when they would have
nothing but an intellectual fran
chise, but in the meantime thought
the i eduction of the income fran
chise to $400 "would be just and
Rep. Paehaole held, that the re
quirement of citizenship was reason
able. The property and income
qualifications were very carefully
considered by the committee, which
included Noble Baldwin, a man of
property and Noble.Kanoa, a native
Hawaiian, and he considered their
deliverance a fair one us in the bill.
They should drop talk of what this
party or that party held, as they
were there not tp advance any party
'but the public welfarp.
Rep. Kauhi thought Noble McCar
thy was right in holding that those
who had voted under the present
Constitution should retain the fran-'
chise. He agreed with the com
mittee's recommendation on the pro
perly qualification, bill favored the
"amendment proposed by Rep. Bush
to make the income qualification
Noble Macrarlaije was in accord
with Noble Widemann in the desire
to have the amendment as finally
shaped puss with u sufllciently large
majority to ensure its passage ul
noxt session. With regard to the
first change pioposod in the Aiticlu,
ho was not prepared to undorsn it.

stitution saw thul they iiiutlu a mis

happily balanced under the, inoonio
qualification, and he considered that
it was not advisable to maUo a re
duction. As to the piopcrty quali
fication, ho supported tho recom
mendation of tho committee.
Hep. Nawahi supported thorcpoit
of the committee, and moved the
previous question, which cariied.
On a call for the ayes and noes,
the President said they could only
be called once on one question.
Noble Widemann urged that each
subdivision should be made a separ
ate question, owing to the import
ance of the mutter.
The President was willing to ac
cept the wish of the House.
Noble Mucfarlane moved that the
ayes and noes bo called on the first
subdivision, viz., the change of
"resident" to "subject," respect
ing voters for Nobles.

by the committee carried on the fol

Noble Widemann voted doubtful,
and, on being recalled, asked to be
exciibcd, as he did not like to see
such a division,
Rep. Ilookano said he tiied to
have the qualification reduced in
committee, but, having failed and
then signed the report, to be con
sistent he would vote aye.
Noble Baldwin moved a recon
sideration of the vote. Lost.
The section passed as in the bill.
Sec. 4 contains the following
amendment to Article 03: By strik
ing out all of the latter half thereof,
begining with the words, "the pro
perty or iucome qualification," so
that said Article, as amended, shall
read as follows, that is to say:
"Article G3. No person shall sit as
a Noble or Repiesentative in the
Legislature unless elected under,
and in confoimity with, the provi
sions ot this Constitution."
Sec. 5 amends Article 02 by strik
ing out the word "resident" in the
first line thereof and' inserting in
place thereof the word "subject"
so that said Article shall read :
"Article C2. Every male subject
of the Kingdom, of Hawaiian, Amer
ican, or European birth or descent,
who shall have taken an oath to sup
port the Constitution and laws in
the manner provided for electors of
Nobles; who shall have paid his
taxes, who shall have attained the
age of twenty years, and shall have
beei domiciled in the Kingdom for
one year immediately proceeding tle
election ; and shall know how to read

lish or some European language, (if
born since tho year 1840,) und shull
have caused his name to ha entered
on tho list of voters of his district
as may bo provided by law, shall be
entitled to one vote for the Repie
sentative or Representatives of that
distiicl, piovided however, that the
requirements of being domiciled in

diately preceding the election, und
of knowing how to1 read and write,
cither the Hawaiian, English, or
some European language, shall not

gation of this Constitution, if they

election which shall be held under
Section C proposes tho following
Article in addition to, and in amend

Rep. Nawahi doubted if an Arti
elo couldjhe added to the Constitu
tion. Noble Baldwin Intimated that the
House could add it to Article 47 if
Noble Phillips said the committee
had taken tho anti-Chinese meat out
of tho hill, on which they submitted
this recommendation. About a year
ago tho Reform Party brought their
henchman, Mr. Kinney, down from
tho States to conduct an agitation
for a special session of the Legisla
ture to pass an anti-Chinese amend
ment to the Constitution. Whether
the movement was designed to catch
votes or not, the mechanics and
store-keepers gave it a certain am
ount of support, because they felt
the need of protection, in earning
their livelihoods, from Chinese com
petition. The bill introduced by
him proposed the sort of amend
ment then sought by working men
and tradesmen of all parties, and he
now moved that the bill pass instead
of this amendment by the commit
tee. Japanese pouring into the
country by thousands the past few
years convinced the working classes
Ihut they should also be included.
The bill proposed to amend Aiticle
47 of the Constitution by annexing
thereto the following proviso: "Pro
vided, however, that the Legislature
may from time to time enact such
laws as it may deem proper for the
supervision and control of all per
sons of Chinese or Mongolian birth
or parentage and may also" by such
laws lestrict and limit their resi
dence in the Kingdom and the busi
ness or employment in which they
may engage. Such laws ma3' apply
to such persons who are in the King
dom at the time of the adoption
thereof and to such as may hereafter
Noble Widemann was willing to
vote for restrictions on people not
yet in the country, but could not
vote for imposing any degradation
on people now going about the
streets, some of whom he consider
ed as good as himself.
Rep. Bush argued that the pro
positi was entirely lepugnant to the
Constitution. No immigiant could
be restrained of his liberty, after he
fulfilled his contract, without viola
tion of the Constitution, which said
that whenever a slave touched Ha
waiian soil he became a free man.
Noble Widemann said the United
State-s yearly sent back hundreds of
immigrants that she did not want.
Rep. Paehaole held that the am
endment was legitimate. The com
mon good meant the good of those
now living here.
Rep. Kauhi said the attempt to
add this Article was like sticking
burrs on a horse's tail. (Several
members called him to order under
the ten-minutes rule after he had
spoken twenty minutes.)
Rep. Bush moved the previous
question which carried.
Noble Phillips' amendment was
put and lost.
