Tho following communication
was received from tho Auditor
General: .Honolulu, March 11,1890.
To tlio Members of tho Lefejisla
i laturo of tho Republic of Ila-
Gentlemen: I havo hvico for-
nially protested to your lionornblo
body ngaiust.tho payment of "Ex
penses of tho Legislature" with
out previous approval by tho Auditor-General,
as being contrary
to tho provisions of Section 19 of
tho Audit Act. In view of tho
fact that tho appropriation of
$15,000 for tho expenses of the
present session has become law by
publication today, without any
provision oxompting such expense
from approval by mo before pay
mont, and in anticipation of for
mer methods in regard to their
payment, which havo buon
plainly contrary to law, I
w'ould respectfully request a
fornml expression by tho LegiBla
titro for record in tho audit office,
on tho legality of such proceed
ing. 1 would say that before tho pas
sage of. tho appropriation, I sug
gested to the Minister of Joauco
tho insertion of a clause jnHho
act, exempting such oxponses from
tho approval of tho Auditor
general, if such was tho intention
of your honorable body, but as no
such clauso appears in the act, 1
feol forced to mako this commu

An immediate reply is earnest

Senator Baldwin said that horo
toforo thp Legislatures had ap
proved their own accounts, but
tljoro might bo a nice point of law
involved. Ho moved to refer to
tlio Judiciary Committee.
Senator "Watorhouse moved to
rajfor to tho Executive.
Minister Damon said ho took
tho ground that when tho Legis
lature passed a bill appropriating
money for its own expenses it
superseded every act heretofore
passed. If ho refused to pay
warrants drawn by its oflicors ho
considered that ho would bo liablo
to impeachment. Tho Legisla
tirro was -the solo arbiter of its
own expenses and its Committees
oiJAccounts acted as tho auditors
ofj tho accounts. There had never
buon any troublo ovor tho practico
hqforo And ho did not see why
th'oro should bo now.
JTho- Attorney-genoral thought
tho Auditor-gonoral was noting in
gdod faith and that tho matter was
ono .that might bo properly re
ferred to tho Judiciary Oommit

After some talk tho answors were

Minister Cooper had informed
tho Houso that tho only way to got

Foreign departments und tho
bureau of Customs.
Speaker Naono announced tho

tho Auditor-General. Interpreter
Wilcox read thd document, which
appears in our Senate report. It
was laid on tho taqlo, to bo con

tho day. The roport of tho Lands
committoo, recommending that the
bill bo tabled,, was for considera

bijl pass. Tho ground had boon
gcjuaoyer already, and objections
raised in tho Houso had also boon
hoard in tho Somite. After hear
ing tho explanations of tho Exe
cutive tho Senate had soon tho
valuo of the bill. If homesteads
cost nothing people might take
them up thoughtlessly. A grout
deal of tho land was valued at $10
an aero, which would mako
a tdiMiuro homestead worth S100.

not get everything fur nothing

that records of magistrates in tlio

made to tho bill in agreement with

considerable amount of discussion
about the form of words.

W. H. Hilliard, tho artist, will
sail for Japan on tho 28th instant,
expecting to mako an extensive
tour ot that country. Sinco his
orrival hero ho has painted up
ward, of forty Hawaiian pictures.
all ot them exquisito works of
art. Even Diamond Knurl..

monotonous to tho Ilonoluluan,
uuder tho magic brush of this
master of his art, hits been
wrought with added charms on
the canvas. His latest Tinintinrr
of that celebrated landmark is a
viowfrom Punchbowl slopo ovor-
loouing AiaKiKi and Waikiki,
showing that portion of tho town
lying under tho drowsy sunshine,
tho roofs of many dwellings peep
ing brightly through the luxuriant
foliage of tho gardons and lawns.
It is n magnificent picture and
illustrates well how tho muster
hand can take up a time-worn
subjoct and delineate it in now
phases of added beauty.
During tho past fortnight Mr.
Hilliard has also painted a num
ber of lovely viows ot native
homesteads, all of thorn charming.
Long years "of the closest
study of tho plctiirosquo and
grand of Algerian, Egyptian and
European scenery, coupled with
the most intimate companionship
with tho great artists of tho Con
tinent, havo assisted in develop
ing a powor to grasp quickly and
sympathetically all of tho phases
of strange and foroien lifo and
this is linoly illustrated in tho
typical Hawaiian scones which
this artist has reproduced.
Mr. Hilliard speaks in glowing
tonus of tho kindness and hospita
lity of tho people of Honolulu, es
pecially of tho inombors of tho
Kilohana ArtLoaguo, whoso at
tentions hayo given him so much
.Eighteen of his pictures havo
boon sold, among tho purchasers
being Mr. and Mrs. Allen, J. B.
Atherton, D. W. Corbett, Mrs.
Larkin of San Francisco, Mr.
Bird ot Now York, Mrs. Dr.
Greono of Boston, Mr. T. O. John
sou of San Francisco and others.
There are still a fow on exhibition
at his rooms at tho Hawaiian
hotel and those who appreciate
tho best in art may avail thorn
solves of tho opportunity of Booing
thorn. Indeed, wo are to bo con
gratulated upon tho fact of Mr.
Hilliard'8 visit. His work and
sympathy for othor workers,
tho truo appreciation of
the possibilities of improve
ment and ultimate success to local
talent aro of great value to our
amateurs and Mr. Hilliard hao
freely givon his assistanco whor
cvnr and whonovor called upon.
Another thing, his having been
among us has givon an impetus to
tlio art movomont which Mr.
Hitchcock and tho members of tho
leaguo havo struggled so long and
patiently to further. Mr. Hilliard
