Tho Assembly ro-convonod nt 1:15
o'clock from recess.
On motion tho Order of tho Day
was brought up, and Bill 07, relating
to tho registration of male residents
in tho Hawaiian Islands, came for
ward for consideration.
Roports from committee wore
road and Bop. B. "W. Wilcox moved
tho adoption of the report of tho
minority, recommending that tho
bill bo tabled. Lost, and a motion
prevailed that tho bill bo considered
section by soction.

lishment of a national register; all
males over 15 to register names,
ages, places of birth, residence, mar

less absent from tho country. Pass
ed. Section 10. Penalty for non-registration
and non-compliance with
other regulations of Act.
Minister Neumann moved that tho
soction be amended as regarded the
Rep. Ashford was opposed to tho
bill. He' considered it smacked
strongly of the personal government
such as exists beyond the Rhine, and
ho could not, thoroforo, blame those
whoso fatherland was there, to sup
port tho bill. It had been regarded
that the measure was necessary, as a
support to tho sugar plantors. But
the principle of tho bill was wrong.
and he would not vote for it even if
he know that tho passage would pave
every one of tho planting interests.
but would vote against it if he know
that its death meant dofeat to all,
and for the reason that lie valued
personal liberty too highly. It was
a maxim of good government that
he who governed least governed the
best. That is to say that govern
ment was the best which gavo tho
greatest liberty, the widest scope, to
its citizens. Whj, then, should any
one, with a spark of personal liberty
within him, be willing to submit
himself to tho indignities of this an
noying system? Tho public welfare
did not call for it; it was an humili
ation to comply
Minister Neumann (interrupting)
Is it an humiliation to tho citizen
of a country to go and bo registered
for the purpose of enjoying his right
Rep. Ashford (continuing) It was
well known that, in the exercise of
certain personal privileges, it was
necessary and proper to bo identi
fied in somo way, but the right to
vote was one thing and tho right to
breathe another. By this law it is
necessary to register to obtain tho
rignt to breathe! This should not
be, and by Heaven it shall not bo if
his voice and vote could prevent it.
Tho law, however, does not compel
a man to register or to voto; it does
not stand over him with a $50-club
in tho shapo of a line to forco him.
He submits, if ho wishes to vote, to
a slight inconvenience so that ho
may be identified. There it is end
ed. But in this law a man must be
identified and register before ho can
breathe, and if ho losos his certifi
cate of registration ho cannot
breathe until ho can obtain anothor
one, to cot which ho may have to
stand in lino with God knows how
many fakes and othors, and toll
whore he was born, how old ho is,
whether or no his grandfather was
cross-eyed and other questions.
And again if one losos his certificate
or is caught outsido tho houso in his
ahirt-sleoves, with tho certificate in
his coat-pockot within tho houso, ho
is marched off to tho Station Houso
to provo his identity, and is prob
ably kept there a dajf or two before
he is allowed tho opportunity to re
cover his absont papor. Was that
in accord with Western civilization?
Ron. White desired to know if
people over introduced bills of this
kind in tho United States or ovo.i in
Rop. Ashford No; if anyono did
they would bo kicked higher than a
kite. Ho had been told that this
was not intonded for whito nion but
for Chinese. If so, thou lot it say so
in tho bill. There was moro that
was bad in tho bill but if a mnn
could talk like an angel and until
tho crack of doom ho could not ox
pose all tho doviltry coutainod with
in its sections. If tho Labor Bill
was wanted then pass it, but drop
Noble Thurston agreed that tho
previous speaker was in favor of tho
exercise of personal liberty. Ho
(Ashford) had said that it was a
maxim of good govornmont that "ho
who governed least govorned best;"
he, himself, would say that there
was a hotter maxim and that was.
"tho greatest good for tho greatest
number." It was a duty which all
good citizons performed when somo
slight inconvenience was undergone
for tho public good. This proposi
tion was not from tho planters but
from those far removed, thosoon tho
other side; tho mechanics and Ha
waiians demand this bill to keep
them from being swamped. Uidoss
this bill passed ho would oppose
tho Labor bill. If this bill does not
pass thoro will be no way to identify
tho labor admitted under tho other
bill and all of its laws will bo but so
much idle wind. This bill can bo bot
tored, it must bo made so that a
man can bo identified without any
chance of transfer. Ho submitted
that in tho interests of tho greatest
number that tho bill should pass.
Bop. Ashford said, (besides speak
ing oulogistically of Noblo Thurs
ton). It seemed to bo understood
that the mechanics desired this law.
Ho denied that this was so.
Noble Marsdon. Has tho mombor
had any conversation with mechanics
on the subject?
Bep. Ashford. Yos, 1 talked with
a mechanic on this very bill this
Noble Marsdon. Well, and what
did ho say?
Rop. Ashford (smiling). Ho said
ho would like to seo this Bogistra
tion bill pass, because it would clean
out Chinatown. (Lmiirhtor.) But I
would not voto for it to cleau out a
dozen Chinatowns! Ho hoped the
bill would bo deferred until after
action on Articlo 83 (Constitutional
Amondinout) that would give an op
portunity to exempt all persons who
wcro hero at tho time of its passage.
Noble Thurston questioned how
thoso who were hero before could bo
identified from thoso who mi"ht
arrive, if that provision was intro
duced? Minister Neumann had (as usual),
but a few words to say and which ho
would promiso with tho opinion that
a man that did not UKo the laws ot
this country was not compelled to
stay, unless it was away. (Laughter).
It was no injury to any good citizen
of a country to yield up a small por
tion of his personal liberty if by so
doins he benefitted tho whole of tho
people. When it came to a quostion
of, ho might say, maudlin sontimout
as tho roquisito to dofoat this bill
then there was no sonso in following
such a course. Rop. Ashford was
always ready to draw tho sword in
defense of personal liberty and had
spokou of tho semi-barbarous civil
ization of northern and middlo Eu
rope; what did tho member mean by
Bop. Ashford. Gorman 1
Minister Neumann, well, indeed 1
Ho desired to say to tho honorable
member that, when Canada, (whoro
Bop. Ashford hailed from) approach
ed tho civilization of Germany,
when as many scientists and states
men were produced from tho land
of tho Kanuck as from that of Fath
erland ho would speak in defence.
As it was ho did not need to say
anything, people would smile if ho
made a speoch in answer for they
would say that that should not have
boon taken notice of, that was "only
Ashford, nobody minds what he
says, thoro ho goes again." (Laugh
tor.) To resume ho hoped that no
labor law would pass tho Houso
without this bill. Ho had never
ghon his voice to any organic law
which was intended to lower tho es
tate of any human being. If tho
Labor bill should bo unconstitution
al thon this Begistration bill would
bo a protection, and, without this
bill passing ho would not voto for
any othor. Ho had seen many Chi
noso around tho Houso during tho
debate, on this bill, and on tho La
bor bill; thoy wore hero for somo
purpose and, he believed through
intimidation of tho very element
which this bill, if passed, would
eliminate and send out of tho coun
try. In that thoro was a boon. Tho
registration was such that no houost
or decent man would bo ashamed to
fulfill tho conditions, it would be
only thoso of that rascally class
which have neither a habitation nor
a name. The bill was good in moro
than one way, 1st; it wpuld aid in
ridding the country of Chinese
vagabonds. 2nd; it would eliminate
from our midst tho opium-smoking
and gambling classes. 3rd; it would
help to got rid of somo of tuo scum,
whito, which came hero by every
steamer and sailing vessel, men who
had loft their own country and
staid horo simply because they wore
not known. Ho hoped that no was
not now entrenching upon any of
tho clientelle of tho member from tho
3rd district. (Laughter.) Of tho
personal taxes which should bo col
lected from the 25,500 Asiatics horo
nearly 10,000 wore lost. This was
mentioned to show that the bill, in
stead of being an oxponso without
return, would assist in obtaining
nearly $38,000 which is now lost.
This bill is intonded to roach further
than Chinese, it may not roach Jap
anese as fully on account of being
against existing treaties. In answer
to Bop. Ashford's interpolation re
lative to America having a registra
tion law but against Chinese sololy,
Minister Neumann, continuing, said
that, America has such a law and
against Chinese but it was in viola
tion of hor treaty, her bill of rights
and hor Constitution. Must Hawaii
do likewise? Ho though that oven if
wo had tho strength of tho United
States and could successfully resist
China, yot wo woro too just to so
act in contravention with our treat
ies. Tho bill should pass as it was
for the best intorosts of tho country.
Bop. Smith, at 1:08, roso to move
adjournment but hesitated so as to
allow tho rending of names of tho
select coinmitteo to which soction 3
had been referred, viz.: Noblo Thurs
ton, Minister Neumann, Noblo Mb
ile, and Beps. Wilder and Bush.
Minister Neumann, obtaining tho
lloor, said that ho dosirod to present
to tho Hoiibo tho reports relating to
tho Marshal and Marshal's Depart
ment. Ho had examined them and
ho doomed it necessary to recom
mend that all of these matters bo
now roforred to a soloct coinmitteo,
to investigate tho department of tho
Marshal. Ho asked that this bo
done this afternoon, bocnuso ho con
sidered that no delay should bo had
and tho session was now drawing to
Bop, Ashford was sorry to take
tho ground but ho was compollod to
oppose tho motion. Enough had
already boon ascertained for tho
House to act, if no one else did. As
thoro had boon no motion to rofor
he would move adjournment.
Minister Neumann said that tho
suggestion mado to him by tho
Houso aud which it was desired ho
should carry out, was ono on which
ho could not act. Ho moved tho
matter bo roforred to a soloct coin
mitteo. Ho did not think that the
Houso would bo so unfair as not to
oxamiuo into this mattor. Ho was
not to bo tho judge; ho would only
ask tho Houso to appoint a com
mitteo and ho would givo thorn overy
Noblo Thurston objected to tho
appointing of a coinmitteo; tho prin-
ciplo was this, that tho Houso had
no business to dictato to tho Cabinet
or to any bureau their action in re
gard to tho rotontion or dischargo of,
their subordinates. In this mattor
thoy had no right to usurp tho func
tions of tho Attorney-General. Had
no right to tell him to keop tho Mar
shal in or send him cat; but thoy
could hold tho Attorney-General
responsible for his acts, thoy could
deal with him. Neither can tho
House instruct tho Board of Health
in its duties in cortain instances.
Bop. Ashford, at 1:22, moved ad
