Thursday, Sopt. 22, t892.
Tho Assembly ro-convoned from
recess nt 1:40 o'clock and proceeded
with tho consideration of tho hill to
nuthorizo railroad corporations to
morteano their property and fran
chise to secure their bonds.
On motion the bill was referred to
tho Judiciary Committee.
Noblo Marsdon offered a nolu
tion rolativo to tho rebating of all
harbor dues on tho Oriental and
Occidental Steamship Co.'s steamer
China and to the following effect:
Whereas, Tho entrance to tho
harbor of Honolulu has been deep
ened to a depth of J10 feet at low
tido, and it is important that this
fact bo made known to the world as
soon as posjiblej
Therefore be it Jtesolvcd, That the
Government bo requested to remit
all chargos for pilotage, wharfage,
etc., and give tho assistance of tho
Government tug to the Pacific Mail
Bteamor China on her mt trip, pro
vided sho enters tho harbor.
Tho resolution was referred to the
following special committee: Nobles
Thurston, Marsdon, Williams, Hop.
Nawahi and Ministor Macfarlane.
Rop. Ashford presented a report
of tho Opium Committee No. 1, tho
gist of which was as follows:
Tho committee find that the pre
sent Marshal had sont all of tho
opium in storo under his predeces
sor, Mr. C. L. Hopkins, to tho Board
of Health on March 18, 1801. The
said opium was sold, along with cer
tain other opium, but tho price re
ceived was trifling and was turned
into tho Treasury as a Government
realization. Tho committee have
learned that since March 10, 1801,
to tho dato of tho eonnnitleo's
last conference with tho Marshal,
he rocoived into his custody the
equivalent of 900 half-pound tins of
opium. Tho Marshal refuses to de
liver this opium into tho custody of
tho Board of Health, upon the pro
text that he wishes to await legisla
tive action rolativo to tho lieousing
of tho use of opium. Tho committee
deem such action of tho Marshal not
only illegal but inexcusable, and tho
Government should have tho bonofit
of tho proceeds of tho sale of such
opium, as soon as maj- bo after it has
served its purposo as evidence. Tho
committee recommend that tho at
tention of tho Attorney-General bo
called to this violation of law and to
insist upon tho prompt observance
of tho law in question in tho future.
Tho committoo complain of tho man
ner in which tho 'Marshal distributes
the portion of linos to bo paid to in
formers. Tho committee furnish a
verbatim interview with tho Marshal
on this subject of division of fines to
"As to a reform of tho system, of
which your committee heroin com
plain, in tho matter of tho
distribution of opium fines, wo
would say that tho provisions deal
ing with the subject are contained
in a bill now referred for considera
tion to this committce,and when such
bill comes boforo tho House for fur
ther action wo hopo to bo able to re
commend appropriate provisions for
tho purposo." Signed by Rop. Koa
hou (chairman), Rop. Ashford, Noblo
Walbridgo and Noblo Marsdon.
On motion tho report was made
tho order of tho day for Tuesday
Rop. Ashford, from tho select com
mittoo to whom was referred ques
tions of Noblo Thurston to tho Min
ister of Finance, respecting tho order
issued by said Ministor on Jul' 80,
1802, that only 25 porcont of tho
Government obligations should bo
paid in gold and tho nnswors of said
Ministor to said questions, reported,
in substance, that they had hold
conferences with tho Registrar of
Public Accounts and with other
Government officers concerned in
tho rocoipt of tho public mouoys and
they find that tho cash in the Treas
ury has boon steadily shrinking in
amount during tho present year.
Thoy supply a tabular statement
showing that tho proportion of gold
to silvor in tho vaults, on February
18th, was as 3 to 1; that proportion
steadily decreased until on July 2nd
thore was $4000 loss of gold than
silvor on hand.
This condition was duo to a com
bination of circumstances prominont
among which was tho payment by
tho treasury, about May 80th, of
$30,000 and exchange, in gold, to
meet the somi-annual interest duo
on our loan of $1,000,000, placod in
Other amounts woro paid in gold
to cancel tho demands of depositors
in tho Postal Savings Bank. An
other reason for tho result mention
ed, is that parties owing debts to
tho Government have found it diffi
cult to obtain gold coin with which
to make payment. As a nocossary
consequence tho Govoriuuont has
had to accept silvor, until within
t,wo mouths last past tho receipts at
tho Interior OlHco consist of little
inoro than 80 porcont of gold. Tho
law of gold payments has boon re
laxed by tho Interior Department as
well as by tax collectors and others,
but under existing ciicuinstaucos tho
Committoo cannot consuro such
leniency, as an insistauco upon tho
strict legal tender law would in
many caes soriously embarrass Gov
ernment debtors, and in others it
would result in a failure to collect
tho money duo tho Government, for
lack of a sullicient available volume
of gold coin to meet tho full de
mands of business.
"Your Committee are awaio that
it is becoming ineieasingly ditlicult
for our business men to obtain even
sullicient gold coin to meet their
payments of duties, and strange, loo,
as it must appear to any ono with
doGuite ideas of tho true functions
of a banking institution, it is ovon
impossible to purchaso gold coin at
our local banks."
This then was tho condition which
presented itself in tho latter days of
July, 1S!)2. Theio wero salaries to
tho amount or about $62,000 to be
paid on tho 80th of that month, and
only about $18,000 of gold in hand
with which to pay them. A choice
of expedients became necessary and
the one of fixing a certain ratio of
gold payments for tho time being,
was carried out, tho Ministor fixing
a ratio of gold payments at 2ij per
cenl after having had put aside $25,
000 in gold as a reserve to moot tho
demands from tho Postal Savings
Bank, interest on bonds and similar
Tho Committee say that thoy can
not censure tho Minister for having
taken the course adopted by him
but think that ho used a commenda
ble prudence in not allowing tho
gold in the Treasury to become so
far depleted as to jeopardize still
more tho Government credit. Be
sides tho ordor in question was made
only for tho day mentioned and,
having served its purpose, is not now
For the futuro tho Ministor, in his
answers referred to us, has promised
nothing except that ho will pay
gold while ho has it to pay. Wo do
not well soo how His Excellency
could have promised or how ho can
perform anything more. It is evi
dent that silver will not discharge
obligations payable in gold.
Tho rocoipts from tho Custom
House have fallen from an average
of about $00,000 per month during
1801 to an average of about $25,000
per month during tho present period,
a shrinkage of about 5S porcont;
lionco tho Customs duties cannot, as
heretofore, bo relied upon to moot
salary demands payable in gold, nor
aro other ordinary sources moro
On August 201 h, thoro woro notices
of withdrawal on file covering about
$07,000 of tho Postal Savings Bank
doposits, all of which and othors as
thoy mature must bo mot with gold
coin. On tho same dato thoro was
a total of $078,0(51.18 duo to depo
sitors in said Bank, leaving about
$580,000, not yot notified for with
drawal but which is practically pay
able ou demand. Tho necossit3" of
meeting not only current oxponsos
but this largo sum as well in gold
coin is what must bo faced, if tho
gold standard of legal tondor is to
bo continued. Tho said doposits
must, in any ovont, bo paid in gold,
which it is hoped, may bo realized
from tho salo of bonds, under tho
Savings Bank Act. Signed by Rop.
