"Your committeo jh Education

to tho largo incrcaso in tho num

that tho district of Honolulu, !
taking both govornmont and

about ono-third of tho school

would recommend tho salary of

of Honolulu pass as in tlio bill.
"AVo find also that tlioro lias
been an actual growth in tho
duties of tho clork and secretary,
and that tho duties required of
hira are such that only a first class
man can fill thom; that tho Board
of Education asked for a slight
iucroaso in his pay but that it has
boon reduced in tho bill to $3000,
which is $1800 lower than it was

"Wo find that tho uav roll of

Speaker Naone, upon tho open
ing of tho Houso at 10 a. m., an
nounced receipt of the translation
of tho President's message. It
was accepted and placed on file.
A communication was recoived
from tho Senate, transmitting tho
bills relating to temporary public
loans and amending tho Land Act
of 1895. Placed on ordor of the
Rop. Hanuna gave notico of a
bill to amend tho law of 1805 re
gai ding tho English and Hawai
ian versions of tho laws.
Tho Senato temporary loan bill
passed first and second readings.
Minister Smith, on tho homostead
leases bill coming up for second
reading, explained tho intention
of tho bill.
Rop. Robertson said ho was not
awaro, nor did ho think other
members wore, at tho special ses
sion that thero was anything un
certain about tho intent of tho
casing nrovibions of tlio Land
1 Act now sought to bo amended.
I how tho natives had gradually let
I their lands slip away from iliom,
either by lecktass mortgaging 0
in somo cases, by being cheated
out of them. Ho did not think it
was right for tho Legislature to go
back on that clnss of leases. While
ho was not prepared to kill tho
bill immediately, ho would move
it bo roferied to tho committeo on
public lands. IIo for 0110 was not
prepared to support tlio bill until

Ron. Rycroft seconded
motion to rofor tho bill.
Rop. Richards thought that bo
foro referring tho bill tho Attor
ney General should givo somo
further explanation, so that tho
matter might bo settled right
thon. Ho thought that Mr.
Robertson had fairly stated tho
view of tho Houso.
Minister Smith stated in effect
that tho f rani or of tho bill had an
idea that tho lessees of a particular
class of homostonds ought to pay
a cortain. amount, which is Btated
in this bill as four por cent on tho
appraised valuo, as a yearly rent
al to .the Govornmont. Possibly
tho idea was not ono that tho
Legislature should seo fit to adopt,
therefore tho bill might go to tho
committeo for examination and
report. Ho would Bay that nouo
of this class of lenses had boon
issued ab yot, tho Government not
having beon quito rondy.
