Honolulu, Sept. 20, 1892.
To Her Majesty Liliuokalani, by the
grace of God Queen of the Jainii
Youn Majesty : In view of the
fact that a bill has boou brought be
fore tho Legislature asking a fran
chise for an international lottery
company, and if such bill pass tho
Assembly it must come boforo your
Majosty for signaturo, wo, loyal sub
jects of your Majest', and residents
of this fair land, beg to submit to
your consideration a few reasons
why, in our estimation, tho nation
would suffer wore such a bill to bo
Wo esteem your Majesty as one
who loves . her people and earnestly
desires tho nation's prosperity. Wo
believe that you are jealous of tho
natjon's integrity, and feel a pride
in the fact that, though ono of tho
least of the nations of tho earth, she
is regarded by all with respect.
Strong in this belief, wo aro made
bold to come before your Majesty
with our plea, knowing thnt tho pro
moters of this scheme will spare no
pains to press their arguments, and
fooling sure that your Majosty, as a
fair-minded woman, will wish to
look at the question from all sides,
that you may be bettor able to de
cide wisely if the bill shall bo
brought before you for decision.
First We beg Your Majesty to
call to mind the terrible strugglo
through which tho great State of
Louisiana has just passed. TVonty
five years ago, under tho pressure of
a financial depression far greater
'than that of Hawaii noi at present,
this State granted a franchise to the
Louisiana Lottory Company. It was
argued that largo sums of money
would bo brought into the State, and
thus business would bo increased.
What has been tho result? After
twenty-five years of experience, it is
found that tho men who have been
onrichod are tho exceptions, while
those who havo boon impoverished
aro a great host. Business has boon
demoralized, and gamblors and sharp
ers have como into the Stato to the
exclusion of a more desirable class
of citizens. No age, pox, or condition
is respected, but men, women, and
little children havo boon swept into
this maelstrom and destroyed. Now
this great commonwealth, with a
population of more than nine hun
dred thousand, finds sho is power
less to froo herself from this gigan
tic evil and calls for aid upon tho
whole Union of States. Can wo
reasonably hope that such an in
fluence will bo any bottor for Ha
waii? And if wo, in spito of this
example, open our doors to this ovil,
whore can wo look for help whon tho
burden becomes too heavy for us to
boar. If, under our restrictive laws,
so many of our pooplo aro already
given over to gambling, how many
will escapo whon we havo covered it
with a mantlo of respectability by
granting it tho protection of tho
Secondly Your Majosty will
notice that tho bill calls for an inter
national lottory; this, as wo under
stand it, includes othor lands, Natu
rally our nearest neighbor and
closest friend, tho United States of
America, will bo tho principal Hold
of operation. Is thoro not danger of
seriously affecting tho pleasant,
friendly relations now existing be
tween Hawaii noi ami tho groat
Republic if wo open hero a refugo
for tho enemy sho has just driven
out with so groat a strugglo? Tho
loaders of tho Louisiana lottory
stand convicted in thoir own words
of carrying on "a business reprobat
ed by law, and contrary to public
policy and good morals." If wo per
mit this "business" wo must oxpoct a
population of lawless eharaotor,
whose presence will keep out thoso
who would holp to build up, on a
solid foundation, a prosperous com
munity, and our isolated position
would mako tho situation harder for
us than it has boon for Louisiana.
Finally An honorable man can
receive no creator insult than tho
offor of a bribe, and this proposed
company offor just that to an honor
able nation. They enro nothing for
Hawaii, except to mako a conveni
ence of hor. So they bring a bribo
having in it a somblnneo of bene
volence to mako it attractive, but a
bribo pure and simple. They offor
to buy t ho nation for a price, and wo
aro asked to sell ourselves to a com
pany of gamblers. As thoy havo
done elsewhere thoy expect to do
hero: to own tho Legislature and
ovory purchasable power and in
dividual. Thus it has been in othor
lands; it is tho history of lottory
companies, and wo cannot expect
our ease to bo exceptional.
We cannot believe that tho Legis
lature will really accept this humili
ating proposition, but if, dazzled for
tho moment by tho seeming brilli
ancy of tho offer, thoy do fail to ro
cognizo tho fact that it is only a
bribo and nass tho bill, it will then
come boforo Your Majosty for signa
turo. With Your Majosty then will
lie tho power to save tho nation; for
it cannot bo possible that Hawaii's
Queen will lend her honored namo
to so iniquitous a measure, therob'
placing this nation boforo tho na
tions of the world as ono whoso in
tegrity can bo bought and sold.
Your Majosty, wo who mako this
plea boforo you aro the wives, the
mothers and tho sisters of tho land.
Wo plead for our homes, for our
children, for tho nation's honor.
Wo pray you to pardon anything
which may havo tho somblnneo of
unseemly warmth, and remember
only that wo como tp you as loyal
women who accept tho nation's
motto in its fulness, Ua man ko ea
o ka aina i ka pono.
God Save the Queen.
Hor Majest y replied to tho depu
tation, saying that sho realized tho
weighty import of their memorial;
sho would take tho matter into hor
serious consideration, and hand
thoir momorial to hor Cabinet.
Fair Play, Bush!
Will j'ou pleaso publish tho
closed correspondence between

Hon. J. E. Bush, Chairman of tho
J, 'ir Sir: I havo tho honor to
acknowledge tho receipt of your
favor of 3'ostorday in which you
state that Mr. W. Sheldon was the
informer in tho case of Reg. vs. Moi
Keo (opium in possession), and re
quest mo as a favor to pay ovor the
informer's share of tho fino (one
half) to Sheldon in accordance with
tho provisions of Chaptor LXVI.'ns
quoted by you.
I regret not to bo ablo to do you
tho favor you request, as I am aware
that Mr. Sheldon is not tho informer
in tho case in question, as ho woll
knows, and the matter of your un
derstanding and agreement with
him that ho "was to receive tho in
formor's share of tho fino must there
fore bo based on a misrepresentation
of the true facts of tho caso to you.
As j'ou aro no doubt aware, tho
matter of paying ovor half fines to
othor than tho true informors has
already boon brought in quostion by
members of tho Legislature, and I
therefore feel myself unable to pay
ovor to any ono but tho actual in

fines, and this 1 am ready to do upon
application by tho proper person.

Wednesday, Sept. 21, 1802.
Tho Assembly reconvened from ro
coss at 1:45 o'clock and proceeded
with tho consideration of deferred
items in tho Appropriation Bill, tho
following items in tho Finance and
Attornoy-Gonoral's Departments, be
ing passed as printed and in nearly
ovory instance in accord with tho
recommendations of tho Committoo
on Ways and Means, viz.:
Deputy Assessor and Collector,
Clerk to Assessor and Deputy,
Custom House Boat, $1200.
Ono item of $200 for Lantana
Commission was struck out.
Pay of Pilots, SM.-IOO.
Pay of Police, Hawaii, $30,000.
Pay of Police, Maui, $25,000.
Pay of Police, Oahu, $08,280. .
Pay of Police, Kauai, $10,800.
Clerk, Translator and Copyist,
Tho abovo item was passed bv
tho oxerlions of Minister Neumann,
Noble Marsdon favoring a reduction
to nearly JS0 per month or $2000 for
tho term, giving as his reason that
tho present state of tho country's
finnncos demands reduction through
out all salaries.
Incidentals Civil and Criminal
Tho item elicited considerable
talk induced by tho presentation of
a statement of o-Attornoy-Gonoral
Whiting, showing that there was
$1000 more spent during tho last
torm than was appropriated.
Eop. Smith considered that $10,000
was sufficient, Minister Neumann
said that according to tho statomont
presented by Noblo Marsdon thoro
must bo bills owing by tho depart
ment to tho amount of ovor $1000
and of which ho had no present
knowledge Ho desired that con
sideration of tho item would bo de
ferred until ho could present sonio
Noblo Thurston said that ho had
never known of so disgraceful a
a showing. Ho endeavored to cauter
izo tho Attorney-General's Depart
ment and wound up by introducing
a resolution, or amendment, that
"no portion of which amount shall
bo used for hack hire."
After somo further talk, but no
argument, tho item was deferred
until Monday next.
Coroners' Inquests, $1500.
Coroners' Inquests unpaid period
ending March 31, $170.
Support, maintainanco and care of
prisonors, $80,000; wk J laid ovor until
An itom of $12,000 for oxpenses of
foreign tour of Princess Kaiulani
was considered in connection with
two reports (a majority and minor
ity) of tho Committoo of Ways and
Moans. Tho majority report was
road. It recommended that tho
amount bo struck out. Tho minority
report favored $8000.
Noblo Marsdon considered that at
tho present stage of affairs tho coun
try could not afford tho money. Bo
sides tho Princess was too young
yot to bo ablo to obtain tho advan
tages resulting from an Europoan
tour. It would bo bottor if tho mat
tor was doforred a fow years.
Noblo Thurston could hardby bo
liovo that any ono in tho Houso
really favored this itom. It was said
that hor father was hording this
itom and trying to got it passed.
Someone said he must havo soften
ing of tho brain to think of such a
thing at this time, whon tho pay of
poor policoinon nnd othor public
servants woro boing cut down, and
tho Minister of Financo was scratch
ing around to moot tho daily with
drawals from tho Postal Savings
Bank. If Mr. Cloghorn wished to
send tho little Princess through Eu
rope lot him send hor himself and
pay for it out of his own pocket. Ho
did not think that it would bo of any
benefit to hor at hor ago to bo parad
ing around tho couutry. If it was of
no bonofit to hor then it would not
bo to Hawaii.
Hop. It. W. Wilcox (tho introducor
of tho bill) was inclined now to think
that it would bo bottor if tho amount
was not appropriated. Ho had hoard
that it was tho intontion of hor
father to go along. Whon ho got
abroad pooplo would seo that ho was
only just a common Scotchman.
Thoy would then quostion rolativo
to tho standing of tho Eoyal Family
of Hawaii whon ono of its members
would marry a common Scotchman.
Hor father had bottor stay at homo
and not display himself. It would
bo advisable for tho Princess to
travel through portions of tho old
world with hor tutors.
Bop, Nawnhi said that Bop, Wil
cox had given a fair sample of his
character for boing doublo-fncod.
That member had brought in tho
resolution asking for this amount
and now ho goes bad on it.
Rop. Wilcox (heatedly) counseled
tho speaker to use bottor language
about him; ho (Rep. Nawnhi) was
worso than boing double-faced, ho
was a lick-spittlol (hoopilimcani.)
Rep. Nawnhi was sorrj to hear
Ruch talk as that mado by tho last
speaker. Tho present Queen had
opened hor doors to him (Rop. Wil
cox) and had fed him at a time t hat
ho needed assistance and now ho re
turns thnt kindnoss by speaking
against tho Roval Family and tho
Heiress Apparent. It did not sound
woll for Noblo Thurston to speak of
lack of finances for ho had only a
short time previously desiied $12,000
and tho services oT iho band for sor
vico at Chicago.
On motion tho itom was doforred
until next Mondnj.
Minister Noumnnn under suspen
sion of tho rules read a report of tlio
special committee which had had tho
considornt ion of t ho now bill t o enable
tho Oahu Railway Co. to mortgage
its property abroad. Tho committee
favored tho bill but recommended tho
striking out of section -1 of tho bill
as it was unnecessary. Report ta
