Tho Senato opened at 10 o'clock
with prayer by Chaplain Peck.

Minutes o yestorday woro read
Two communications woro re
ceived from tho House, ono stating
that A. G. M. Robortson had boon
appointed a committeo of ono to

tho Senate in notifying tho Pre

for business, and tho other con
taining n'list of tho now standing
and joint committees of tho
Sonntor Brown of tho Commit

took tho usual course.
Senator Brown reported that
with Roprontativo Robertson he
had duly notified tho President
that both Houses woro ready for
Senator Brown offered a reso

appropriation bills, ono relating

"In presenting these bills, I
would say that tho public has taken
so largo an interest in general in
tho financial outlook of tho coun
try for tho past two years, I think
a now status possibly may bo mado
in which tho Minister of lunance
should coiuo boforo tho fund dis
posing portion of tho Legislature
and make a statement of what his
prospects are for tho coming two
years, somowhat mora gonornl
perhaps thnn could bo made in tho
report which has been mado to tho
President. In submitting thoso
bills, and also outlining other
bills which will como boforo tho
consideration of tho Sonata and
tho House it has been tho policy
of tho Executive with roferouco to
these proposals and in ordor that
tho Senate and tho House
may learn and lmvo in
view what tho bill is liko without
being taken unawares by proposi
tions which may already lmvo re
ceived tho consideration of tho
Tho first bill which I lmvo pre
sented to you today is a bill cov
ering salaries and pay rolls which
has been prepared and translated
in proper form. There is a bill
that has already passed tho Exe
cutive covering current expendi
ture, which 1 expected to have
hero today, but which is in tho
hands of tiio translator. I was dis
appointed that it was not rondyto
present to yoil today, but I will
probably bo ablo to do so by tho
next meeting of tho Senate. Fol
lowing theso two bills thoro is a
bill providing further loans for
tho Minister of Financo for tho
coining two years. You aro all
woll aware Mint our surplus whioh
wo had at tho beginning of tho
Inst year was vnry heavily drawn
upon by reason of tho insurrec
tion and the cholora epidemic;
MiU8 mnkingour oxponses laBtyonr
very large; wo lmvo expended
something liko two millions of
dollars and it has boon a very
heavy drain on tho country and
This bill that I prosont for your
consideration this morning in
connection with tho appropriation
bills is to allow tho Minister of
Finance to mnko nrrangenionts
with or deal with tho banks or tho
capitalist during tho month or at
the ond of the month or nt bucIi
times as the Treasury and its re
sources from various reasons shall
have been somewhat reduced, that
ho can tako the drafts or the or
ders of tho Ministers of the differ
ent Departments nnd place them
with a bank or banks and recoive
advances on them until such time
as tho trensury is in a position to
tako thorn up, it may bo a month,
a week or perhaps only a day or
two, tho bank or banks being
allowed tho usual interest at G-por
cent. This gives tho Executive
and tho Minister of Financo a
broador opportunity to meet tho
demands upon tho Trensury with
out any unnecessary delay. 1
hope Mint tho Treasury at somo
day not far distant will lmvo such
areBcrvo-dn hand that it will not
bo necessary to call for this moans
of securing loans, but this is a
privilege, which every civilized
nation lias taken advantage of and'
with tho interest that our own
citizens are taking in our welfare I
think will be a means of sustaining
and also of increasing our credit.
Tho proposed act covering
snlnries and payrolls calls for the
two years ending Docombor 31st,
1897, 61.939,734. Togothor with
tho act appropriating, $1,GG3,937.-.
G3 for tho general exponses of tho
Republic, it shows n total estimated
expenditure of S3,G03,G71.G3, an
iucreaso ot appropriations over
tho provious biennial period of
laking as a guide tho receipts
of tho current rovonuo for tho past
two years: S3,-139,05(i.-M, it shows
that $104,615.19 ought to bo pro
vided, though I apprehend $300,
000, would bo a safer provision,
for unlookcd for outlays will,from
past experience ensue.
To raeot this; nn iucreaso of
revenues is anticipated ns below:
From tho Customs of (50,000.
From tho taxes increased by a
change of date of assessment S70,
000. From tho working of the now
license net $40,000.
From revenues of government
hinds, a portion of which woro
formerly under tho crown,$20,000.
A more careful interpretation
of tho Stamp Act would show nn
incronso of $10,000, Government
realizations $15,000, Water rates
and postal servico $15,000, Legacy
tax yl0,000. Total estimated iu
creaso of revenues $210,000.
From those estimates and from
thoso appropriations which from
present tiuforsoou causes may not
bo oxponded, I hope for a surplus
on December 31, 1897, of $-10,000.
Tho anticipated rovonuo arising
from the proposed chnngo in tho
dates of assessment nnd collection
of taxes will not tako oil'ect until
1897 and for nearly tho samo
causo, though its adoption will bo
moro gradual, tho increased rev
enues for licenses will not bo mado
To moot tho calls of tho treas
ury during tho interval tho net to
further provide for tho payment
of current accounts is asked for,
to bridgo over the interval should
tho Ijxecutivo hud it necessary.
This act is fixed at tho duration of
two years, and it is not appro
hondod that more than $150,000
will bo required at any ono timo,
nnd will bo repaid from cun out
t rovonuo at any timo when funds
, from that sourco aro in hand.
I Tho statement that I lmvo made
brings us now to tho point where
J wo leave tho current rovonue. I
I think it has been a very happy
mrtliod of handling tho finances
I of this country that tho different
I Ministers in pabt timos have
endeavored to soparnto tho
curronl funds from the loan funds
j thatas much as possible wo shall
conlino our oxponsos to general
exponses of tho Govornmontso that
j if wo expend loan funds or current
funds thoro shall bo for that ox-
pondituro something in return,
there simu uo something coming
back, something that if wo aro
asked what has a certain sum
been oxponded for thoro will bo
something to show for it. If tho
books of tho Government should
bo kept, and as wo hope thoy will
bo kept somo day, whoro wo lmvo
an account so our land resources,
i our public buildings, our school
funds, otc, can show everything
that has boon oxponded for each,
this will certainly show an advanco
in tho interests of tho country.
Wo loavo now tho current ac
count and in n very few words I
wish to state what tho proposition j
of tho Executive is with roforonco
to our bonded lonn fund account. I
Tho prosont debt of tho country is '
somothing over Threo Millions of
Dollars, thes6 bonds show inter-
est varying from 12 per cent, i
down to opi cent. Thoro aro a few I
of tho bonds bearing interest at !
12 por cont., 1 think only $15,000 j
belonging to tho Board of Eduen-1
tion, others bearing interest at 7 per '
cont., a great majority at o per
cont. and i'ow at 5 per cent. Tho
proposition of tljo Executive is to
ask tho Legislature to pass an
Act allowing tho Minister of Fi
nanco nt such times ns ho mny
think prudent to cousolidnto tho
present bonded dobt in any ono
issuo, whether it is done
partially horo and partially in a
foreign govornmont remains -with
tho future developments. I lmvo
sout. n copy of tho Act which I
orignally drafted to London for
consideration and to obtain their
viows. I lmvo secured tho advice
of men who woro interested in
loan matters and tho draft was
: prepared aftor thoroughly review
ing tuo subject; tno urnit was
thou submitted to tho Council and
redrafted and submitted to tho
Executivo who allow it now to
come boforo tho Legislature.
I was advised that it would not
bo wise for tho Government to
cite in tho original draft just what
each expenditure would bo for
but that should como in a follow
ing act which will bo presented to
you. I lmvo stated tho proposal
with roforonco to tho prosont
bonded indebtedness, and anothor
act will bo submitted for your
consideration dealing with tho
subjoct of future loans.
It is tho intontion of tho Exec
utive to propose that a highway
shall bo placed in Mio Konn Dis
trict, also a wharf hero and at
Hilo and new highways near Hilo
and that tho othor islands shall
receive duo Rnrfsirlnrnf inn : flint I
school buildings shall bo orccted
and it may bo necossury that somo
now public buildings should bo
erected, thoy will como under what
is known ns tho Now Loan Act.
It is proposed Mint this shall bo
a gonoral loan which may bo
drawn on when needed, it being
compulsory that tho monoy shall
only bo devoted to Public Im
provonionts, Education and Im
migration, and that tho Legisla
ture shnll specify .how much and
for what purpose it is to bo drawn
on. Thoro is $20,000 remaining
of tho old Loan Act, but it is so
tied up as to bo unavailable for
tho purpose required. This Act
is also followed by an Act. limit
ing tho powers of tho Minister of
Financo in mnking his arrange
ments with thoso who ohooso to
tako our bonds nnd with syndicates
who proposo to tako thorn in
In concludiug tho Minister re
ferred to proposed measures con
corning tho License Act and tho
Tax Laws, and said that tho fact
that during tho threo years ho had
hold oflico the public in our own
community had subscribed for
bonds to tho amount of $510,000
had given him" a great deal of on
courngomont in handling tho
finances and ho thought that it wo
continued in tho samo consorva
tivo niannor it would only bo n
short timo before tho present in
debtedness would bo largoly de
creased. Attornoy-Oonoral Smith, under
suspension of tho rulo3,inlroduced

was read tho first timoand roferred
