Tho proceeding'! of the Soneto

by Chaplain Peek. Tho roll cnll

Minutes of yestorday -wore rend
Senator AVaterhousc prcsonted a
potition from G2 citizens of "West
Maui, Lauai and Molokai, protest
ing against any change in tho
location of tho Circuit Court of
tho Second Circuit Laid on tho
table to bo considered with any bill
which may como up.
Senator Brown rose a question
of privilege in regard to an arti
cle which appeared in this morn
ing's Advertiser, in which tho fol
lowing appeared in heavy typo:
"Tho black list is opened. Those
are tho Members of tho Legisla
ture who have thus far put them
selves on record for licensing
Senator Cecil Brown,
Sonator John McCandless,
Senator A. Hocking."
Tho Sonator maintained that
such articles woro not proper, bo
ing in tho nature of intimidation
to thoso members of tho Souato
who had not yet declared thom
solvos on tho opium bill. Evor'
Senator had a right to his own
opinion without boing nbiiHed by
tho Advertiser for it. It was not
right to start such a black list in
conucction with any business be
fore tho Logihltituro. That kind
of journalism must bo stopped at
once. It was not fair to tho mem
ber and ho boliovcd it to bo poor
policy for any newspaper to hold
up to scorn or derision any
member of tho Senate. Fur
ther than that ho would
call the attention of tho Souato to
tho fact, known to them nil, that tho
Advertiser was directly controlled,
editorially and othorwiso by per
sons now high in tho government
omploy. lie had intended per
sonally to say nothing about tho
matter but some other Sonntors
had protested to him against tho
uso of such languago in tho press,
aud ho had been asked to protest
again its recurrence. Ho did not
care to tako any further proceed
ings and would bo content at this
stage with entering an onorgotic
protest against such journalism.
Sonator Baldwin desired to
know tho words complained of, as
ho had only carelessly glanced at
President Wilder said tho words
wore "Tho black list is opened."
Ho objected to tho words "black
list" being used in connection
with tho Sonato or any of its
members nnd asked if any moiu
bor had any motion or resolution
Sonator McCandless offered tho
following resolution in writing:
Resolved, that it is tho sense of
the Senato that tho course pur
sued by tlio Advertiser in tho
opium bill is neither iiouorablo,
fair nor manly.
Senator "Wright considered tho
words as a slur on tho members
montionod and on tho Souato.
Sonator McCandless did not
want to bring tho offending editor
beforo tho bar of tho houso. lie
supposed it' was tho right of any
meiubor to bring in or Mipport
any bill that ho thought was for
tlio best intorests of tho public.
It looked to him as if tho articlo
was tho commencement of a
courso of intimidation to bo
pursued by tho papor against
members who favored tho opium
bill, llo called tho attention of
tho Ministorof Financo, who was
presont, to tho courso pursued by
one of tho hoads of his depart

ment, who was tho principal
owner and controlled tlio papor.
Minister Damon said ho favor
ed good, healthy criticism, and
welcomed it oven if it was as
severe as it might bo. It was tho
very lifo of tho government and
what was needed to insure good
government. Tho government
would not bo in tho healthy posi
tion today that it Was, if 'it had
not been for tho opposition press
making itsolf heard.
Senator Brown said ho wns with
tho Minister of Finance heart and
soul. "Let them criticiso all thoy
want to" snid ho, "but when tho
huitninue used comes down to vul
garity it is not criticism, and it
was timo to stop it."
Senator "Wntcrhouso objected to
considering tho resolution be
cause it was not written on tho
kind of papor prescribed by tlio
Tho Presidont mildly sat on tho
objection by stating that tho Son
ato had not yet condescended to
tako advnntugo of technicalities.
Senator Baldwin said ho had
since read the articlo carefully and
thought it was not n proper one.
Tho President said ho would bo
tho last to tako action in any pro
per criticism on tho Sonato in tho
papers. Tho whole tenor of tho
article in question was that of in
timidation and ho thought tho
criticism indulged in wns both
very ungentlomanly nnd vory un
just. The matter was thon allowod to
drop by the withdrawal of tho

Sonator Brown moved that tho

President's salary for two years
Under tho head of ponnnnont
settlements the item of $4CC0 for

Before proceeding to tho next
item Minister Damon ithked tho
iiidtilgouco of tlio Senate to bving
up the matter of an allow anco to
Kniulani. Ho proceeded to oulo
giso tho young lady and stated
that it was tho wish of tho Execu
tive Council that sho bo given a
similar allowance to that of tho
Queen Downgor. Ho would there
fore mako n motion to that effect.
Seconded by Sonator AVuterhouso.
Sonator Horner stated that he
would not vote for the motion un
less tho Minister could give him
tho nssuranco that tho amount was
acceptable to tho young lady and
that sho had announced hor in
tention of supporting tho Repub
lic. Sonator McCandless hoped that
sinco tho action of tho Sonato at
the Speciul Session tho matter
had boon finally dropped. Ho
was surprised to find tho
subject coming up again. Ho
thought tho government had all it
could do to find mouoy onough
for current oxponsos without in
curring others. Ho would movo
