Ail Eminently Conservative and Safe Company.
The consideration of (list importance in judging of the condition of
any llnancial institution (and notably of a life assurance company, the ma
jority of whose contracts extend over long peiiods of years) is its surplus
strength. The Equitable has, over and above all liabilities, a larger sur
plus thau any other assurance company.
Assets, Dec. 31, 1891, - $136,198,518.38
LIABILITIES, including tho- Reserve on all existing Pollcle., (4
por cent. Standard) and Spoclal Itosorvo (toward tho
tabllshmonl ol a Z)(t por cont. valuation) ol $1,500,000 109,905,537.82
This Surplus remains after making provision for every obligation, on a
rigid calculation of Liabilitie based on the standard preset ibed by the In
surance Law of the State of Now York, which assumes that Assets will bo
invested so as to lealize interest at the rate of 4 per cent, per annum. In
addition to this, in a spirit of conservatism, the Directors of the Society,
on the recommendation of its Finance Committee, have set aside a Special
Additional Reserve, looking towauls even a more stringent and conservative
future standard of valuation than the law now prescribes.

Wkikwsday, Juno 8.
Tho House reconvened at 1 :35
with just a quorum present.
Rep. Smith desired that the Cabi
net present their financial policy If
they had any. lie desired to know
the basis on which the figures in tho
Appropriation Bill had been built,
tho reasons for i eductions and the
prospects for increased revenue to
meet proposed expenditures. No
policy had been presented iu the de
partmental reports, therefore lib ask
ed the question.
Minister spencer was sorry that
the Minister of Finance was not pre
sent, as he could explain fully tho
sources of the proposed income. He
would say, however, that it was pro
posed to meet current expenses with
current revenue, they would havo
only to make provision or new work.
That had been already provided
for to a certain extent by bills al
ready introduced and others which
will be presented by the Minister of
Finance. On other, matters relative
to this subject, his colleague would
undoubtedly give full and satisfactory
answers when he would be present.
Minister Whiting agreed with tho
previous speaker and he als i regret
ted that the question should havu
been presented during Ihe absence of
the Minister of Finance. Rep.
Smith had undoubtedly heard Minis
ter Widemann say before recess that
he would not he here this afternoon.
The Minister had been ordered home
by his doctor. He would say that
there was a policy defined in the Ap
propriation Bill. Section 1 contains
tho absolute needs offthc country
covered by the absolute revenue.
Reductions may be made in Section
1 in various places and he would op
pose all attempts at increase. If the
woik was to he reduced then cut off
the salaries absolutely. Thought that
the revenue of the country would be
increased by proposed increase of
duties and by new means of internal
On motion the order of the day
was proceeded to and the Appropria
tion Bill came up for consideration.
The House resolved into Committee
of the Whole, Rep. Kamauoha iu the
Under the head of "Permanent
Settlements" the first item presented
was, "Mrs. Barnard, 8000."
Before action was (aken thereon
Noble Pua moved that a new item,
"Jler Majesty Kapiolani the Queen
Dowager, $1G,000," be inserted, and
that and the items, "Mrs. Emma
Barnard, $600, Mrs. KaraakiniSimc
ona, 8400," be all refened to a spe
The next three items were passed
Ins 1UUUW9 ;
Expenses of Legislature. S25.000.
Secretary of Privy Council, 200.
Incidentals of Privy Council, 8250.
In the Judiciary Department tho
following items were passed as pre
Salary of Chief Justice, $12,000.
Salary of First Assoqiate Justice,
Salary Second Associate Justice,
The item, "Salary Clerk Supremo
Court, 86000," caused discussion re
lative to the economy needed in the
dispensation of amounts.
Noble Neumann moved that the item
be made read 86500. The incumbent
of that olllce was known to be a faith
ful, intelligent and industrious em
ployee. Noble Thurston was also in favor
of rewarding merit, he considered
that it was not economy well placed
to whittle ofF salaries of cood em
ployees. The chief clerk had no
time to doanylhingoulside the duties
of his olflcc. lie was busy all tho
time. The speaker had often been
in the law library at 5 o'clock and
had noticed the clerk still there occu
pied with his duties. He moved that
the item read 7000.
Minister Parker was inclined to
agree with the remaiks of Noble
Thurston and would bo pleased if he
could consistently vote for an ad
vance This item had however been
carefully considered by the Cabinet,
He could not see the justice of the
Chief Clerk of the Supremo Court
getting a higher salary than the
chief clerks of other1 bureaus, the
Registrar of Accounts and the clerk
of the Interior Department for in
stance, either one of which had more
work and far more responsibility.
Rep. Ashford said that the present
clerk was an excellent friend of his,
but he could not agree to an increase
in the salary, He did not consider
he would be doing his duty to his
consfitucuts of the 3rd Ward, many
of whom were poor people and who
would bo compelled to bear their
portion of any advance. The incomes
of everybody had shrunk and salaries
of Government employees should
keep pace with the condition of
Noble J, M. Horner was in favor
of further reduction. Many capable
meii were working on plantations
from 5 in tho morning until G o'clock
at night for $100 per month ; men
whom he did not doubt, that
several of them eould amply 11)1 the
billet and perform the duties of the
Chief Cleik and would do so for that
same $100 per month. He moved
that the item be $4800.
Noble Baldwin considered it was
dangerous to reduce the salaries of
important positions, Iu so doing the
places were apt to be filled by inferior
men. He considered that the Gov
ernment was like a large plantation
and ho referred to the methods adopt
cd by him to retrench in the expenses
of his plantation. Ho did not reduce
the pay of bis best men, but bur
i ti i - . i i in rrf?
dened them with more work) lidded"
on the work of tho inferior ones to
that of tho more capable and reduced
the number of tho Iuw4.1l class. Ho
hdliced a litllo further on in thu Bill
an item rotating to tho pay of exliu
cleiks. Ho thought if some of that
labor was placed on the other clerka
that item might be omitted and tho
amount poitioucd out among those
now in service
Noble Macfarlano was in favor of
retrenchment, but was agreed in the
oxpresscd opinion that it was danger
ous to reduce tho salaries of elllcient
ollicers of the Government. Ho
thought that a reduction might he
made In thenumberof clerks. Econo
my slionltl bo practiced by commenc
ing in culling down the number and
the salaries of the subordinate clerks
in the different departments
Rep. Smith was in favor of the
item as iu the bill. The amount
presented there was not a reduction,
it was in reality only placing the sum
at that which had been usual before
the last session. If the country was
in as prosperous condition as in '86,
'88 or '90 ho would bo much please I
to vote for 87000.
On motion the sums of 87000 and
$6500 uere each voted down and tbo
item passed as presented in the Bill.
Deputy Clerk, $4000.
Second Deputy Cleik, $3600.
Passed as above.
"Shorthand Reporter who shall
furnish to tho AUoruey-General tran
scripts of proceedings iu Crown and
Government cases free of charge,
Rep. Waipuilani moved an amend
ment by the insertion of the words
"and members of tho bar" after tho
words "Attorney General" and that
the salary bo $4,000.
' Noble Peterson moved that the
item be referred to the Judiciary
Committee. "There was but one
man in the Kingdom who could fill
the position and that was the present
Minister Parker said the Cabinet
had carefully considered these items
not for a week but for over six months
past. The Chief Juslicu had recom
mended this amount. He did not
favor reference ; lie moved it pass as
in the Bill.
Rep. Abhford seconded the motion
to refer. The notes taken by short
hand reporters were such, as lie had
been lnlormed, that no one reporter
could transcribe accutately the notes
of another, although followers of the
same system. The evidence taken in
important matters by the shorthand
reporter of the Supreme Court was
therefore a sealed book, in fact there
were 75 or 100 such books now on
the shelves in the rooms of the Law
Noble Macfarlane was also in favor
of reference to tlte Judiciary Com
mittee; if the statements made by
the last speaker were correct then
there was something radically wrong
in this important evidence being con
tained within sealed books. It arbi
trary signs were used by the reporter
so that it would be difficult or impos
sible for others to transciibe his notes
then it was most pioper to have a
knowledge thereof and the sooner the
bctier. lie considered that he would
not bo doing his duly to the public
unless he insisted on having this mat
ter investigated by the Judiciary
Rep. Waipuilani considered that
the Colitis were getting tied up by
this condition of affairs. lie judged
from what had been said that if the
Btoncgraphcr died then all his work
was lost. IIo would withdraw his
motion that the salary be$l,000; the
repoiter might get out of the country
if he heard that the salary was going
lo be reduced.
Minister Paikcr withdrew his mo
tion (to pass as iu Bill) so as lo allow
the motion of reference to prevail.
Rep. Nawahi moved that the item
be referred to a Select Committee to
be called the "Committee on Mira
cles," or else to the Committee on
"Public Lauds and Internal Im
provements." Heard of the use
in other countries of the phono
graph in taking evidence. That
method seemed to him reliable, it
would not be a sealed book, it would
talk whenever desired. He favored
obtaining a phonograph here. If the
stenographer should die or get out
the reported evidence in important
cases would be tied up.
On motion the item was recom
mended to be referred to the Judi
ciary Committee and the Committeo
at 3:30 rose and reported their tran
sactions. On motion the report was adopted.
President Walker then announced the
following members of a special com
mittee, to consider items of "Perma
nent Settlements," referred, viz.:
Reps. Waipuilani and Kaunamano,
Nobles Pua, W. Y. Horner aud W.
Tho House at 4 o'clock adjourned ;
Noble Baldwin, however, giving no
tice before adjournment of a meeting
of tho Finance Committee.

Mr. ,1. P. Blaize, mi extensive real
estate dealer in Des Moines, Iowa,
narrowly escaped ono of the severest
attacks of pneumonia while iu the
northern part of that state during a
recent blizzard, says the Suturduy
Jteview. Mr. Blaize had occasion lo
drive several miles during the storm
and was so thoroughly chilled that
ho was unable to get warm, and in
sido of an hour ufter his return he
was threatened with a severe case of
pneumonia or lung'lover. Mr. Blaize
sent to the nearest drug store and
got a bottle of Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy, of which ho had often
heard, ami took a number of laigo
doses. He says tho elfect was won
derful aud that in a short timu ho
was breathing quite easily. Ho kept
on taking the iiiediciuu and the next
day was able lo como lp Des Moines.
