"Sen. Brown moved that a ro
cess bo takon for consultation.
Carried. This was afterwards
amended so that tho Senate went
iuto a secret conference which

After recess tho mattor of elect
ing Gvo members of the Council

thoro to romam until called up.

Minister Hatch replied to
questions preferred by Mr. Robert
son, as follows:
Q. Has tho govornmont au
thorized tho introduction of any
Chinoso laborors under Chaptor
80, Laws of 1892?
A. Yes; it has.
Q. If bo, how many?
A. Two hundred and eighty
seven. Of these thirty-five arriv
od by the Belgic March 2, 1892.
Of tho remainder 125 pormits had
boon returned. It is not expocted
that the balanco can be utilized
owing to objoctions on tho part of
the authorities at Honakonc. Un
der tho law as amendod byaotof
tho Exooutivo and Advisory Coun
cils of tho Ropublio datod March
19, 1895, 1315 permits have boon
issued. Thoro havo boon no ar
rivals as yet. '
Q. How many Chinoso are
thoro now in tho country on
six months' residonce pormits
nndor said law?
A. Including 115 now on the
quarantine ground, theroaro 1303
Mr. Hanuna introduced tho
Whereas, no pay having boon
fixed for officers of tho houso, tho
following salarien bo paid: inter
preter, $10 a day; clerk, $10 a day;
sergonnt-at-arras and messonger,
$5 a day.
Mr. Robertson thought thoro
wis no roason for extravagant
salaries to officers of the Houso.
They would not have to work so
hard as offioers of tho last Logis
laturo. It has boon customary to
allow tho secretary thirtydays after
tho adjournment to oompleto his
work. Fivo dollars a day to tho
sorgoant-at-arms was more than
a first-class meohanio could earn.
Ho would movo that the clerk re
ceive $7 a day and the sorgeant-at-arms
Ml'. Hanuna considered that
tho mover of tho amend
ment had begun this morning to
give work to the olork at a rato
that would bring his labors up
oloso to the amount dono by form
er secrotaries. The sorgoant had
u good deal to do, having to koep
tho peace in tho House and do its
Mr. Richards favored tho
amendment. The sergeant would
not have much to do iu tho direc
tion of keoping the peace if the
houso continued as pacific as it
Air. Kamauoha thought tho
socrotary and interpreter ought to
bo paid oqually, In former Legis
latures tho sorgoant got $5 a day
and tho messenger $3.
Tho Speakor decidod on a tio
against the amendment.
Mr. Robertson Mi on moved that
tho clork roceivo $8 and tho
Mr. Kamauoha arguod for giv
ing tho clerk an equal salary with
Mr. Robertson oontended that
tho intorprotor had just as much
work as in formor legislatures and
ought to havo $10.
Mr. Richards said that thoro
had been no competition for tho
position of interpreter, whioh
showed that thero woro fow who
would undortako tho dutios.
Mr. Rycroft spoko against a re
duction in tho interpreter's pay as
compared with the clerk's.
The question was finally settled
as follows: socrotary, $8; intorpro
tor, $10, and 8ergcant-at-arms,$4.
Mr. Rohortson moved a resolu
tion for a joint committee of
Houso and Sonato on tho printing
of tho rules, Carried,
Tho houso wont into committoa
of the wholo on the land bill, Mr.
Kamauoha in tho chair.
Mr. Richurds asked a question
about fees. Ho moved that tho
fees of unsuccessful supplicants
bo roturned to thorn.
Ministor Smith advocated the
charging of a foo of two c'ollars
on each application for land.
Minister Damon was sony to
disagroe with his colleague.
The applicants would naturally
be people to whom a dollar or
two was important. An applica
tion foo ws a fiuo on tho appli
cant. Minister Smith wished to ox
plain that, while disagreomouts in
tho Cabinet on essential points
would bo highly improper, ho did
not think there was any impro
priety in differences between Min
isters about small details. He
argued that if an eight- acre lot
did not cost a man anything he
would not bo apt to valno it pro
porly. Mr. Rycroft thought tho sub
agont should not roceivo more
than throe applications for one
piece of land. It would not do to
havo twenty applicants for one
Mr. Rohortson did not know
why the Attornoy Genoral was so
anxious to take two dollars ,from
a man without giving him any
thing in return.
Minister Smith argned that
theso land -tonures should not be
granted without certain restric
tions, which would prevont specu
lation, land-grabbing, etc. It
was no hardship to a man who
took up ten acros of land to dig
up a dollar or two, which perhaps
ho might havo spont in buying
gin. Thero had to bo investiga
tions ns to tho applicant's com
pliance with conditions of ob
taining land and these investiga
tions would oost monoy.
Minister Damon said his busi
ness brought him into acquain
tance with somo of tho poorest
pooplo in this country. There
were natives so poor that, if it was
a cold climato, they would freeze
to death. Tho logislaturo ought
to encourage theso poor people to
got land on whioh to make a liv
ing. So unambitious were they
that, if they failod in tho first
application, losing their two dol
lars, they would booomo discour
aged and not try again.
Ministor Smith (interrupting)
asked why an intending applicant
should not ask tho sub-agent if
thero wero any prior applications
for a cortain lot, It was not against
poor men that tho provision in
question was directed, but against
rascals and land-grabbors.
Minister Damon related an
account of how he had reclaimed
a man who had boen a notorious
stealer of fish from his pond by
giving him a small lot on which
to mako his living.
Mr. Winston moved tho feo bo
Minister Smith moved $1.
The amendment of Mr. Richards
carried, leaving tho foo at $2.
At noon tho committee took re
cess till 1:30.
