The Senate conourred in a
slight amendment made to tho
Labor Commission Act.
The bill oxomutincr the Hono
lulu Library from taxation came
up on the third roading.
Senator McCandless moved an
amendmont that tho property of
tho Y. M. C. A. bo includod in
tho oxemption. He stated that
according to tho statements' of its
officers the latter institution had
an average daily attendance in its
roading room of 153, while tho
library only issued an uverago of
70 volumes per month. The
amendment was referred to tho
President Wilder said tho mat
tor was ono that required consid
eration, as tho Chinoso Y, M. C.
A. and other institutions of a
similar nature might ask for
Senator Baldwin stated that tho
Land Conforenco Committee had
completed its labors.
A motion to adjourn to Mon
day was lost and the Sonnto then
adjourned to tomorrow at 10 a.m.
After tho regular proceedings
Rep. Richards presented a minor
ity report on the Sunday Band
Concerts, as follows:
"As a membor of your commit
too to whom was referred tho
joint resolution requosting tho
Minister of Foreign Affairs to
ordor tho government band to
givo conoertb Sunday afternoons,
1 would -now present a minority
report recommending the adoption
of tho resolution."
Cable bill came up on its
seoond reading with report of
committee, as follows:
The Committee on Commerco
to whom wbb referred the bill for
the construction and maintenance
of cable in tho Pacific, prosonted
tho following report:
"Your Committee on Commorce
to whom was refoired Sanato bill
12 huYO had the mutter under
careful consideration and aro un
ablo to recommend the passago of
tho bill for tho following roasons:
"Tho bill does not clearly
show on whoso behalf or for
whoso account tho cable or cables
are to bo built, whether of tho
government or of tho company
thut constructs or operates thorn.
"It does not expressly provide,
as it should t at its connection
in tho Hawaiian Islands in the
oaso of a foroign oablo shall bo
on tho islaud of Oahu, or some
othor habitablo islaud of tho Re
public. "It doos not limit tho time or
period in case tho oablo is owned
by a company that the contract
with tho company shall bo mado
"It does not provido for obtain
ing an ostimato of tho cost of tho
Cdblo itsolf, of laying it, of main
taining it, of a ropair ship and of
operating such repair ship.
"The committeo recommend tho
introduction of a now bill, which
will romovo tho objootions raised
in place of tho otio boforo tho
On tho motion to adopt tho ro
port Hop. Robertson objected very
decidedly on tho ground that al
though tho committee made ob
jections to tho bill tho roport
pointed out no way in which to
remedy them, neithor did it offer
any suggestions tending to that.
He thought it was tho duty of
tho committee either to prosont
amendmonts in propor shape or
draft a now bill and not merely
recommond that a now one .be
Mr. Rycroft said ho was cor
tainly in favor of tolographio com
muuicution, yot ho wnntod to
know if the Government had any
information about tho cost of a
oablo. He bolievod that it would
cost this Government $500,000 to
aid a cablo from horo to San
Francisco. The pooplo of Ho
nolulu woro crazy on this cable
quostion, soeming to think that if a
copper wiro was stretched between
here and the Pacifio coast gold
would run out of tho ond of it.
The oountry was as yet undevelop
ed, outside of Honolulu being a
wild country. Fivo hundrod
thousand dollars would do more
good in developing the country
than in laying a cablo. This
bill emporvorou the Government
to entor into a oontraot, and he
could not seo his way otoar to
committing tho country to such
an obligation. Ho thought that
tho Legislature would do well to
aid a oablo, but tho country was
too small to enter into u contract
for having a cablo laid.
Mr. Robertson had difforont
viows on tho matter from those
hold by tho member for Puna
Tho importance of a cablo to these
islands could not bo over-estimated.
If wo could got a cablo
by tho issuing of half u million of
Govornmout bonds it would be
well worth tho prico. This
country was lightly tixod, and its
debt was comparatively small.
Thero was not by a groat deal so
largo a population as the oountry
could support, aud a cable would,
moro than almost anything that
could bo imagined, devolop the
Rop. Hanuna didn't seo any
thing to got frightened about in
the bill. That ovorything con
nected with tho letting of contracts
etc., would bo open and public.
It would bo published in tho
newspapers and tho honorabio
member from Puna could road all
about it or come down and help
superintend it. Ho slid there
wero only two objects that a groat
man' prominent Hawaiiaus want
ed, one was annexation to, and
tho other telegraphic communi
cation with the United States
That if they could got thoso things
they would bo willing to ho down
and die. It had boon the droam
of his life, as it was that of his
fathor beforo him, to seo a cablo
laid to tho Unitod States and he
still hoped to soo it beforo ho diod.
Rop. Winaton moved that an
amendmont bo inserted limiting
tho poriod of tho bill to two years.
Ron. Rycroft wished it under
stood ho was in favor of tho bill,
that a oablo wou'd bo tho means
of extend ug our comtneice and
inoroasing our exports four-fold.
What ho wanted wai that tho
mombcrs bhould consider tho bill
Tcry carefully beforo acting on it.
The first section then passed as
in tho bill.
In section 2 Mop. Winston mov
ed to insort fiv-1 years as the torm
of oxemption from tixation. Tho
amondment was lost and tho sec
tion passod as in tho bill.
Tho remaining seotions passod,
and tho bill went to engrossment,
and was mado the special ordor
Rop. Kamauoha from tho com
mitteo to whom was referred tho
potition of rosidents of Kau for an
appropriation for roads reported
in favor of referring tho matter to
tho Minister of tho Intorior.
The committoo to whom was
referred tho joint resolution fix
ing tho amount of compensation
for tho ox-Labor Commissioners
roportod favorably, and tho reso
Tho Joint Resolution on Sunday
band concerts was then token up,
togothor with the majority and
minority reports ot tne com
mittee. Rop. Hanuna made somo very
ill-timod and sonsoloss remarks
on tho mnttor which resulted in
tho rost of the mombors getting
"that tirod fooling" very badly.
Ho suggested among othor things
that if the honorabio member
from Puna would bring down a lot
of good looking Puna girls and
"lomilomi'1 the poor tired work
ing men of Honolulu on Sundays
they would like it a good deal
bolter; also that the Sunday con
certs would uegouorate into ex
hibitions of hula dancing, etc.
Rop. Richards called tho mem
ber to ordor finally, and said that
if he could not say anything bet
ter than the rot ho was talking ho
had better quit.
Rep. Rycroft said he had not
been going round with his oyos
Bhut since he had boon in Hono
lulu. Ho wanted to givo tho
workingman a chanco to havo a
place to go to on Sundays. What
the workingman wanted was some
change, something to occupy his
mind and take him out in tho
open nir. As to tho concerfs de
generating into boor gardens and
so forth, mattors could not bo
any worso than thoy woro now.
Ho know from actual observation
that anyono could get all the
whiskoy ho wanted on Sunday
anywhere in the outside districts.
Rop. Kamauoha objected to the
concorts on general principles.
He thought Honolulu people hod
music enough from tho band on

ing to be hoard on tho subjoct,
