Rofuricd to tho Jomt Judiciary
Sonator Brown tlion introduced
his bill to regulate and restrict
tho salo of opium, and tho Sonato
mado him road it through from
beginning to end for its inform
ation. The bill provides for tho
salo of licenses 'for each island at
auction at tho following upset
prices: Oahu, 820,000; Maui and
Hawaii, 815,000; Kauai S10.000.
It contains regulations for tho salo
of tho drug aftor tho license has
been granted, and also regulations
under which opium smoking may
bo curried on. It provides for n
duty of SI por pound on all opium
imported into the Republic.
Under tho head of now busi
ness Senator Brown moved that
his opium bill bo referred to tho
Printing Committoo. Tho bill is
j endorsed by Senators Brown, Mc
Candless and Hocking, and tho
j motion was seconded by McCand-
Sonator "Watorhouso moved that
tho bill bo rejected .and Senator
Rico seoonded tho motion. In
Biipport of his motion Mr. AVutor
houso objected to tho considera
tion of tho opium bill at all, and
Raid that it was not wished for by
his constituents. IIo denounced
tho bill in stroutr tonus and
urged that tho Senate vote against
tlio useless expense of having the
bill printed. Ho said tho Senate
might as well show whoro it stood
at once nnd end tho matter.
Senator Baldwin considered
that it was one of tho mosit im
portant matters to cumo before tho
present session. As far as ho
was conccnini ho was opposed to
licensing opium in any way, but
thoro was evidently an honest
ditl'oronco of opinion on tho sub
ject, both among tho Senators and
tho general public. Somo who
had liorotofoio opposed it hud
now changed their views and woro
ill favor of a liconso. Thoro woro

thoso who favored licensing, and
thoro woro thoso in favor of tho
gonoral proposition who would
not go as far as liconsing opium
smoking saloons as provided in
tho bill. Thero woro two members
of tho Sonato absont, and ho
thought tho importuueo of tho
matter and tho gonoral intorost
taken by tho public throughout
tho islands required that it should
tako tho usual course. Although
not in favor of tho bill ho should
voto against its summary re
jection. Sonator Schmidt said that his
mind was inot made up on tho bill,
liko Sonalor Watorhouso's. Ho
would liko to hoar tho features of
tho bill discussed and wanted time
to consider boforo voting cithor
Senator "Wricht announced him
self us in favor of an opium
liconso law but thoro woro
somo provisions in tho bill
which ho could not favor at
tho present timo. Ho wanted a
full and freo discussion of tho
bill and would vote ngoinst
cluikiu"- it off.
Senator Brown said ho had boon
opposed to the licensing of opium
continuously from 1678 to 1890.
In 1892 lio voted for it because ho
found that 15,000 pounds of opium
was coining into tho country year
ly! Since 1892 ho was more than
over in favor of tho licenso system
bocauso ho fouud that sinco that
CTnlo the importations had not de
creased but if anything woro
larger. IIo said ho was a senator
from Oahu as much as Wator
houso was, and denied tho lattor's
statement that his constituents
woro opposed to it. On tho con
trary tho speaker asserted that ho
had been requested by a very
largo number of tho votorp of this
island to introduce nnd advocato
tho bill. Ho wanted a full and
freo discussion of its merits and
bolioved in getting tho wholo
mattor boforo tho public. If tho
Sonato would not license tho sale
of opium lot it bo imported under
heavy duties as in tho United
States. Tho bill did not restrict
tho solo to Chinese bocauso such
restriction in his opinion would
bo class legislation and thorofpro
unconstitutional. Ho wanted tho
bill fully discussed by tho Sonato
and if thoy could not ogreo on it,
ho was in favor of referring it'o n
direct voto of tho peoplo.
Sonator Baldwin again stated
that whilo not in favor of tho bill
ho decidedly objected to forcing a
voto on it without knowing any
thing of its mer its.Ouo Senator hud
said his mind was not mado up,
and ho understood thoro woro two
others in tho same fix. Ho thought
it was duo to them that tho bill
should bo considered carefully.
Ho had been in ninny legislatuics
and did not consider it n vory
courtoous thing to reject a bill on
its first appearance
Attorney-General Smith said
thoro was a very great difference
of opinion in or tho matter all
over tho islands. It was a'
subject of grave importanco
and ho thought tho bill
should tako its usual courso and
rccoivo full and niaturo consider
ation. Sonator Watorhouso did not be
liovo in getting tho public agitated
on this or any other matter. Ho
said tho plantation men wero al
ready worrying about what would
happen to their men if this in
iquitous bill should pass. Givo
tho authorities propo rtools to work
with and thoy will soon stop tho
opium trallic. Tho mattor could
bo finally settled this morning by
rojecting tho bill. Sonator Brown
know thoro was nothing porsonnl
in his motion to rojoct the bill.
Sonator Hocking thought it
would bo discourteous to Senator
Schmidt and othors who had not
mado up their minds on tho bill
to attompt to kill it at tho vory
Sonator McCondloss said opium
was quoted in tho Honolulu mar
ket today at $10 por pound and at
that prico it was a ding on tho
market. That fact showed, that
tho government was powerless to
provont its importation, and not
boing nblo to keep it out they
should do tho next best thing,
which was to regulnto its salo and
Sonator Watorhouso's motion to
call tho ayes and noes was lost,
only Watorhouso, Rico and Blow ij
voting in favor of it.

pears in tho issue of that paper
of February 10th:
Tho suppression of a magazine
in Honolulu, the burning of tho
December edition and tho des
truction of its plates has rovoaled
a "trango story, according to the
admission of its editor, who says
ho was paid by Now i ork Demo
crats to attack tho Hawaiian Gov
ernment in print.

Among tho passongors of tho
steamer Australia, that arrived in
tho city yesterday morning, was
Julion D. Hayno, publisher of tho
Hawaiian, Jin illustrated monthly
niagazino, tho Doceinbor number
of which tho ollicials of tho Ha
waiian Republic found it necessa
ry to suppress on account of cer
tain matter publislica therein.
Mr. Hayno is registered at tho
Occidental Hotel, and purposes
roniaining in this city until tho
doparturo of thj Australia upon
hor return to Honolulu, during
which time ho expects to havo tho
edition of his magazine that was
destroyed by tho Hawaiian author
ities reprinted fiom tho original
manuscript and consigned to tho
mail for distribution both in Ha
waii and the I'nitod States. To a
"Chroniclo" reporter Mr. Hayno
rolated tho story of tho soizuro and
confiscation of his pioperty.
"I hud a contract with tho Gnz
otto Publishing Comimny of Ho
nolulu for printing tho niagazino,
and havo published llvo numbers,
in which I mado it rather w.nm

"A Fin do Sieclo Republic," in
which 1 gavo tho lifo history of
tho foitiulors of tho Republic and
of their morals. This articlo wns

loaded tho magazines into it, eart
ed thorn away and burned them.
"Tho printors meantime inform
ed mo that they had been notified
by tho Attornoy-Ooneral of the
Hawaiian Republic that if the
book was issued thoy would lie
prosecuted. Tho foroman of the
printing office, who is also a stock
holder in tho concern, told mo ho

All tho plates of that portion'
of tho book winch displeased the
Clovorinnout authorities, iuoluding:

After denying that ho was a
Hoalist Mr. Hayno said: "J
am solely opposed to annexation.
I have never, heretofore, though
for eight years a resident of tho
islands, mixed in politics, and 1
am the only ono on tho Royalist
side that has published a lino who
has not been put in jail."'
Mr. Hayno then proceedod to
explain tho purpose back of tho
publication of his magazine "You
see, 1 am paid for what 1 am do

To tho suggestion tlmt tho East

Hayno said: "No, hardly that.
