HONOLULU, H. I., TUESDAY, MARCH 10, 189G.
A mistake being found in tho bill
it was reform! back to the Enroll
Seunto Bill No. 1, nppropria
tiono of salaries and pay rolls, was
taken up on tho third reading.
On motion of tho Attomoy
Goneral the salary of tho first
clerk of tho first circuit was raised
from S3000 to 83G00.
On motion of Senator Baldwin
the salary of tho clork of tho Mnui
Circuit Court was raised, from
8G00to87S0. When tho Ending
of tho itom of S2400 for the pay of
Chinoso nnd Jnpanoso Invoico
Inspectors at tho Outom Houso
was roached there was a general
laugh from tho Senators and spec
tators, but tho item passed without
Senator McCaudless tried to got
a reduction of the itom of SMO.OOO
for tho pay of tho polico of Ho
nolulu but mado a signal failure.
An increase was made of S10
per month in tho pay of tho seven
hosomon of tho Fire Department,
making their pay 850 per month
instead of 810.
Undor quostions from Senator
McCandloss the Minister of the
Intorior Btatod that a proposition
had boon mado by tho Hawaiian
Electric compnny to tnko
over tho Electric light plant
from tho government and
pay 8200 por month therefor,
riioy also offered to furnish all
tho street lights required at 810
por light per month. Ho thought
some seventy lights moro woro
needed than at present in use.
Minister Damon Raid if. wns
very nico to talk about sevonty
moro lights, but ho must protest
against any oxponso for tho noxt
two years that was not absolutely
Senator McCaudless wns very
glad to hear tho Minister' of Fin
ance talk that way. Tho entire
appropriation for tho electric light
works was 820,200. Thoro woro
Bixty lights in use, which, with thu
offer of the Company, would cost
only 814,400, making a saving of
S11.800. Ho would like (o have
moro light ou tho subject before
finally passing tho itom.
Miuistor King said tho Senator
must remember that tho govern
ment works furnished lights for
all tho public buildings in addi
tion to tho streets, which would
nccouut for much of tho differ
ence. A motion to refer tho itom to
tho Miscellaneous Cominitteo for
investigation finally prevailed.
All tho othor items in tho bill
passed as on tho second rending
and tho bill was again referred to
tho Priuting Committoo for revi
sion. At 11:40 tho Souato adjourned.

HOUSE Or HEMlEbENTATIVES.
Minister Damon this morning
submitted an answer to Bop. Rob
ertson's questions rogardiug tho
Board of Equalization of Taxes,
in tho form of minutes of tho
Board nnd its printed rules now
Bop. Kamauohn nsked tho fol
lowing questions of tho Minister
of tho Interior;
''Does tho Government propose
to introduco any moro Chiueso or
Jnpaneso into tho country? If
so, how many are intended to bo
imported? Secondly: Is thoio
not enough labor in tho country
to satisfy tho sugar, rice and othor
Tho Government's bill to amend
tho Land Act camo up for second
rending, nnd Minister Cooper
moved that tho bill pass.
Boj). Byeroft spoke against tho
bill. Ho wanted to seo the nntivo
llawaiians got a chanco to settle
ou tli 3 laud and cultivate it. If
after two years tho plan should
prove to ho a failure, then a
moasuro liko that now beforo tho
Houso could bo adopted. Ilo
undorstood that tho bill was de
ferred until today to enable tho
Govornmont to givo further ox
phinationH of its policy,
Minister Cooper foil it wiih tin
forliuiiito that ho should bo loft to
ropnuuiiil tho tinitod opinion of
Dm ICxouutivo on llin nmllur, vot
ho would minimi tin Hoiikii tliut
it wud nut )iu win imliuil for piwt
ponement of consideration yes
terdaj After tho meoting of tho
Honie ho had, howovor, laid tho
matter iinin beforo tho Cabinot.
and it was their unanimous
desiio that the passage of this
bill should bo urged. It was a
fact that tho discovery of tho
provision of tho Land Act in
question was a snrpviso to the
Executive. WJmt had brought it
io inoir urtPimon vi no learning;
tlint 0. BoKo hni wiittt u to
Germany, convoying the infor
mation that homesteads free of
rent and taxes woro available in
Bop. Rycroft asked if tho Min
ister wnsiiorroctly informed. He
understood that Mr. Bolt'e had
written to induce Gormati immi
grants to conio hero for labor two
years on tho plantations boforo
taking up homesteads.
Minister Cooper replied thnt ho
know nil that, and it was not to
head off Gormnu immigration tho
bill was introduced, but tho offer
ofMr;Bolto was tho first intim
ation tho Government had of tho
present condition of tho Land Act.
Tho Minister proceeded to nrguo
that tho law as it stood gavo land
away without oithor rent or taxos
in roturn, which distinctly mado
those who took up tho land ben
eficiaries of tho Govornmont, and
this was a position that he was
snro no Hawaiian would nccopt.
Tim Laud Act with this proposed
addition would still bo liberal in
its provisions. Its bonefits woro
on tho basis of a lot of eight acres
of good land or sixteen acres of
mixed dry nnd wot land to each
homestead. Iho House was as
sured that tho Govornmont had
tho interests of tho Hnwaiiaus at
heart, and thesoontored into every
plan that they considered for tho
geueral volfnre. Ho hoped tho
bill would pass.
Bep. "Winston seconded tho mo
tion to pass tho bill.
Bop. Byeroft said that homo-
Btoads woro already exempt from
taxes up to n valuation of 8300.
Bops. Kamauoha nnd Hanuna
supported tho bill.
Bep. Biclmrds discovered a
mistake sonowhero, referring to
tho Land Act, and would ask
loavo to withdraw his motion to
lay tho bill on tho tablo. It op
pearcd that nono of tho holders of
liomosteads woro required to pay
taxos. Ho would substituto a
motion to refer tho bill back to
Bop. Byeroft contended that
thoro was no mistake. Every
man in tho country wns oxompt
up to 8300 valuation. This bill
required that tho homesteads
should bo re-appraised overy
twentieth year, then tho average
ago of tho homesteader would bo
sixty years, and, nt that ago, ho
would havo taxation added for all
his improvements to his home
stead mndo in tho meantime.
Bop. Bond would bo very sorry
to oppose any measure emanating
from tho Miuistors, because ho
thought thoy woro men who woro
worthy of boing trusted with tho
conduct of public affairs. Yet ho
thought it was vory strango that
this vory point of froo homesteads
Was ono especially urged while tho
Land Act wns being considered at
tho special session.
Bep. Richards (on tho Speak
er's asking, "Aro all ready for tho
question ? ) No; I am not ready,
l do not clearly understand tho
matter, and if I havo to vote now
1 shall vote against tho bill.
Minister Cooper stated, for tho
second time, that tho law ns it
stood mado tho lioldors of homo
steads pensioners of tho Govorn
mont. If tho homesteads return
ed no rovonuo whatovor, tho Gov
ornmont could not expend money
in tho districts, whom tho lands
aro situated, for tho roads noeded
to opou up tho country.
After homo further dosnltoty
discussion, tho further consider
ation of tho bill was doferred till

ltep. Hnnuua considered the pro- '
vision was only to require tho
magistrate to attend punctually to
tho duty, and tho Clork would be
tho proper person to seo that ho
Bep. Kamauoha argued that (
even tho Clerk micht bo net'li'enL i
nail pm Uo interests suffer lrom
tho nugloet of both ollicinls. Ho
urucd his amendment.
Itop. Rycrott was opposed to
the bill altogether. Ho was
against Bending overything to Ho
nolulu ns boing in tho lino of con
trnlization. By-and-by ono could
not brealho without coming to
Honolulu. Thoy woro told yes
terday it was for safe kooping,
but whoro woro tho stone or iron

tho country. If tho country mag
istrates did not tako good caro of
thoir records, lot them bo sent to tho
seats of tho Circuit Courts of the
respective jurisdictions thoso on
Hawaii to Hilo, on Maui to AVai
luku, otc. Unless tho bill woro
bo amended ho should voto
against it, and ho moved tho bill
bo doferred until tomorrow for
that purpose. Ho accepted an
amendment from Rop. Richards,
torofor the bill to a solect com
mittee, and thus 'tho motion car
ried. Beforo adjournment Speaker
Naono appointed Bops. Byeroft,
ivnmauohn nnd luchnrds as tho
select committee. ,
Rop. Knmnuohn propounded
tho following questions to tho
Minister of Foreign Affairs:
"1. Please to stato to this
Houso how many Jnimneso nnd
Chiueso have been brought into
this country as lnborors during
the two years ending December
31, 1895, and supplied to sugar

"2. How many laborers, Chiueso
