Thu Commit too rceonvoiicd from
recess at 1:15 oVlock and proceeded
with fuitlier tfonotal fonsiiloration
of tlio Ilnwatian Hanking Act.
Noble Coriiwoll desiied to hoar
any oppression of o)iuion from the
Afinistur Wideiiiaiiu 1 am nut
prepaiod to make- a speech now. It
is elaimed by tlie htippoiteis oT this
bill thai it contains soino good; it
may, hooor, lie fraught witli a
great deal of evil Toi the country.
Wo haw been told from the Liberal
side of tlio House that they want
moro information on this bill. As
thoy hae asked this I think they
ought to have it. I beliee 1 stale
thu opinion of the Cabinet.
Noble Una was opposed to the bill
for :i good many icasons but such as
were shiiied by all of the business
peoplo in the community. The 11a
waiians did not so view al pie-;ent,
but they and all the pooler class,
would .stiller most. Exchange would
go up to an exorbitant late and tho
expenses would have to be all paid
Rep. Kiiuuaiiiiiuo eonsideied that
the passage of the bill would be
hurtful to (lie business of money
lenders and tho banks, and that was
wiry there was such opposition from
Noble Kauhane was opposed to
the bill, lie said that the statements
made that it was adverse to the in
terests of capitalists and the business
men of the community was in itself
a strong aigument against the bill.
Hawaii owed a largo debt, and if the
business interest ? were crippled how
was it going to be paid. The pro
posed paper money would drive out
gold, then what would there be to
pay tho inieicat and principal of the
bonds with. Ho featod that the in
dependence of the count r would
uii Heir if the bill passed.
Hop. Kancnlii was not iri fawn of
indefinite postponement or tabling.
Ho thought it advisable to go slow
iii the matter before passing, for he
had some doubts about tho constitu
tionality of the measure.
Noble Horner said that the month
of the bill weie not jet undeislood;
he, also, favoied going slow. He
would like il sent back to a commit
tee, and on let urn to bo considered
section by section. If any snagn or
sandbats weie then encountered ho
liiiiif-olf would vote for indefinite
Rep. Wilder said that ho thought
it was high time to come to a vote
now; the business had beon before
the House now for somo linio, and
for the last six weeks he had studied
tlio bill, listened to arguments pro
and con, and had vainly tried to find
something good in it. Ho could not
say, as the Minister of Finance had,
that bis mind was not made up. lie
was, like Noble Maefarlane, opposed
to it first, last and all the time
Tlioio w'iis no good in tho bill; it was
full of mil. The fact thai there In
no provision for ledemplion in the
bill is enough to condemn it if it
had no other fault. Ho respected
the introducer, but thought his views
weie most visionary. Ho did not be
lieve in the views of tho member fiom
the Thiid Ward, who ho knew and
could nppicciato for his intelligence,
and who had spoken in favor of
this bill. JIo was well satisfied that
the member did not beliew) what
ho had himself said. The memboi
fiom Hilo (Nuwahi) had said that
the llnwaiians had but little know
ledge of tho mynterics of finance.
Ho had listened to that member for
one hour and a quarter on Friday,
and for another hour and a quarter
to-day, and from what the member
had said he was well prepared to be
liovo thitt he at least know nothing
about finance (.laughter) and theio
foro belleed he told the titith, Com
parison had been made with the is
sue of tho American gieonback. That
was unfair. The gieonback had
been issued as a war ineasiue; tho
United States had found themselves
in contact with a gigantic position.
They had to laiso money immedi
ately to meet the daily expense of
tho war. No other country could
have gotten loiinil this state of
things; the speaker pioduced a WO
gieenback and road that the United
States piomisiw to pay twenty dol
lais. That meant twenty dollars
in gold or hilvur. This gieenback
pays all debts public and private ex
cept custom duties and interest on
the public debt. There thej were
like the Hawaii of to-day, but thej
made provision that the custom
duties should be payable in gold,
and that was for use in payment of
tho interest on tho public debt.
With all its great resouices and all
the confidence of the wealthy North,
the Government could not keep that
paper at par with gold for one day;
it deciea&ed in value until il was only
10 percent in its value For ten years
if was never at par. No one ever got
ii dollar's worth for a dollar paper;
the prices had inetoased in ratio with
gold, and only -10 cents worth was
obtained for a paper dollar. If the
United States with untold wealth
wjis unable to hold t heir paper money
ill par what would this country be
able to do when we haw to go
abioad for everything that wo eat,
that we wear, that we use. To Ha
waiians he would say that the depre
ciation in this paper, as it must de
preciate, would go on until it got to
be worth only lit) cents on the dollar,
and make them pay $1 for a deck
passage on an island steamer which
they now gel for .?2. Ho did not
oppose it on account of being a
money lender, he was not one, but
;is an impoiter. He had to import
coal for the steamers, lumber for
sale and supplies of various kinds.
Cannot pay for these things in this
proposed paper money, therefore
must obtain exchange Jt lias beon
said that sugar might be seat abroad
to act as such, but he had no sugar,
therefoio ho must sitlI7r and others
Noble Horner de&iied to say that
(lie lirot sixty million of greenbacks
did not depreciate
Rep. Wilder -Why, sir? Why, sir?
Because they were redeemable in
gold! Thoy weie called demand
notes. 1 know, because 1 got paid
off in them. I was then in the army.
Noble Horner said that he might
lie able to disagree with tho member
relative to the redemption of the
greenback. It was a well known
fact that at that time the bankers of
the whole country had said that
thoy weie going to pack up their
.Rop.Wildor Yes, some time before
that all the banks had rofusod
Noble Hoiner Yes, indeed, Mr.
Ch'aiiman and gentlemen, those
bankers, who should have helped,
came up and besieged tho President
with their stories about the condi
tion of things and they worried him
so that it Wiis decided to mako the
issue redeemable in gold. Before
the second issue, however, tho Presi
dent saw the error and said it would
have been better to have left '"the
damned scamps gone!" (Laughter
Jep. Wilder considered that his
authority did not .agree with tho
statements of Noblo Hornor and ho
(the speaker) on being asked for his
authority, mentioned Blaine's book
entitled '"Twenty Years in Congress"
and referred to page !'.)() of that
Noblo Horner could bring the re
port of the Secretary of tho Trea
sury of tho United States if needful.
The law itself depreciated that cur
rency and tho United States Gov
ernment refused to take its own
paper for customs or interest.
Noble Homer -desired to ask Rop.
Wilder if ho had seen in this pro
posed Bill whore tho proposition was
to make gold and silver real estate
Rep, Wilder That cannot bo done
Noble Horner asked another ques
tion of Rop. Wilder to which the
latter said that he did not boliovo
that tho question was explainable
and Noble Horner himself was not
satisfied that he knew himself, a re
mark which was greeted with much
laughter. He, Noble Horner, would
like to have the Hill be re-referred
to a committee to bo revised and re
.Minister Parker favored the Bill
being ro-roferred to a committee,
but a committee that would do its
work and not shirk it, This Bill was
the result of much thought and hon
est conviction on tho pari of Noblo
Horner and should be received and
treated with proper respect by tho
House. Tho Government has beon
.standing aside quietly for tho pur
pose of hearing tho arguments pro
and con. Tho members of the Cabi
net had the same right as other
ineiubei.s to listen, especially as tho
measuie did not emanate from them.
They could wait the action of a com
mittee and were only just in doing
