IjoiiTiETii Day, Ai'itiL 9.
After tlio opening preliminaries
tbis morning, Senator Watorbouso
presented a petition from tbo Y.
P. S. O. E. protesting against tbo
sale ot liquor.
Senator McCandloss from tbo
special committee on tbo Tax bill
reportod against tbo amendment
of Senator Hocking allowing poll,
school and road taxes to bo work
ed out at tbo rato of 50 cents per
day, on tbo ground tbat tbo
scheme bad boon tried boforo and
failed. Tabled for consideration
with tho bill.
Senator Lyman reported favora
bly on tho petition for a firo sta
tion at Makiki. Tbo report stated
that a suitable lot, chemical ongino
and building could bo procurodfor
$14,560, which includes tbo run
ning expenses for tho prosont
biennial period, according to
figures prepared by tbo chief on
pmeor of Uio Firo Department.
Tbo committee found tbat there
woro Boveral lots belonging to tho
f;ovornmont which could bo uti
ized without purchabing a now
one, and therefore recommended
that tbo sum of $10,000 bo appro
priated for tho purposo.
Sonator Baldwin inquired if it
was necessary to mako a special
appropriation for tbo purpose.
Minister Damon said it could
como in under tbo supplementary
appropriation bill, which would
bo rendered necessary owing" to
tbo chango in tho fiscal period.
Tbo Secretary read a petition
from twenty-four Chinese barbers
asking to bo exempted from $50
license on tbo ground tbat their
Bhops woro not patronized by white
men and consequently they did
not intorforo with tho business of
whito barbers; also that their pro
fits woro very small. Laid on tbo
Undor unfinished business con
sideration of tbo bill for Internal
Taxes was resumed".
Sonator "Watorbouso moved that
sections 3 and 6, passed yesterday,
bo reconsidered, his object being
to got n uniformity in tbo ages, at
which poll, school and road taxes
became duo. Carried.
Senator McCandless then moved
tbat tho ago at which poll taxes
bo payablo bo changed from
sovonteon to twenty.
Minister Damon said bo was
sorry to seo this matter como up.
Tbo change would mako consider
able diiroronco in tho revemio of
tbo country. InBteod of trying to
increaso tbo rovonuo, which was
tho main object of tbo bill, tho
Sonators seemed to bo trying to
reduce it. "With rognrd to tho
argument that undor tbo presont
system tho Assessor found a good
deal of trouble owing to tho diiror
onco in ages on certain personal
taxes ho had only to say tbat tbo
Assessor was well paid for his
timo and troublo and tho argu
ment should not cut any figure.
Senator AVatorhouso said that
undor tbo presont systom of
farming .out tbo work of collecting
thoso tuxes to the Assessor's sub
ordinates thoro was a loss of $2
on a great many of tho receipts.
J.1U3 a was simply stolon from
tbo government by tho collectors
and ho know whereof bo snoko
and could provo bis assertions.
Tlio Assessor should not bo allow
ed to give his undor men a cbanco
to defraud tho government as was
now being dono.
Senator Baldwin said boys of
17 could earn as inucb on tho
plantations a8 men of 25, and did
so to his knowledge. He did not
boliovo in making any chaugo at
Soiiaior "Watcrhousa said ho
u ' . tikf time to look the mattor
ut lurtber and moved tbat sec
tions 8 and 6 bo reforred to tbo
Fitmneo Committoo. Carried.
Soction 5 as recommended by
the committco was carried.
Tbo proposed new soction ot
Sonator Hocking to allow tho per
sonal Ir.xps U 1.3 worked out at
tho rato of d! ( a day then
cam'o up with t! report of tho
committed againot thi name.
Minister Damon tliQiight tho
Assessor or bis assistant might
bo given discretion in tho matter
to allow taxes to bo worked out in
Sonator "Waterhouso said that
any law which would commit
an honest poor man to jail whoro
ho had to bord with common crim
inals was an outrage and a shamo.
Senator Hocking said his pro
position was also an economical
Senator Brown said tbo proposi
tion was simply an inducement
held out to lazy nativos not to pay
their taxes. If tho amendment
paBBCi wo should eortainly seo a
repetition of tho scones of oldon
days when tbo natives brought
their pipes and calabashes of poi
and simply sat down on the road
and mado a picnic of it. Tho na
tive would simply soldier as ho
used to do and thoro would bo
little or no work on tho road.
Sonator Baldwin thought it was
unwise to mako any chango at tho
Tho motion to adopt tbo report
of tho committco was carried by a
yoto of 9 to 4 and Senator Hock
ing's amendment was thereby
Section 16 thou came up to
gether with tho substitute offorcd
by the committoo, (printed in yes
Sonator Brown moved to adopt
tho substitnto section.
Minister Damon moved to
amend tho following paragraph
"In estimating tho oggregato va
luo of oacli such enterprise for
profit thoro shall bo taken into
consideration tho not profits mado
by tho same, arid all other facts
and considerations which reason
ably and fairly bear upon such
valuations" by adding thereto tho
words "also tho gross revonuo
from all Bources."
Senator Brown suggested tho
words "as woll as tho gross ro
coipts" and Mr. Damon accepted
Minister Damon said theso
words woro important and should
bo embodied in tho law. Theso
was tho first attompt ovor mado
by any government of Hawaii in
tho direction of an incomotax and
every possible data should bo

Sonator Watorbouso wanted to
know why lifo iusurauco compa
nios woro oxompt?
Sonator McCandloss said in tho
State of Massachusetts a tax of
4 por cent was lovied on lifo iu
surauco companios nnd in tho
State of "Washington 2 por cent.
Tho lifo insuranco people had
simply bulldosed former legisla

moved to includo lifo insuranco
companies in tho bill and Sonator
Watorbouso seconded tbo mo

tho policies woro different. Firo

agreed to bo considered as mado

In tho United States Somite on
March 2i Sonntor Mills ma lea
I speech in support of his resolu
tions proposing tho uao ot tho
army and navy iu taking posses
sion of Cuba and holding it until
tho peoplo had established local
self-government. Mr. Mills said
tho resolutions heretoforo beforo
tho Bonato wero stops in tbo right
direction, but vory short stops.
Tho peoplo of Cuba had far great
er claims on tbo United States
than tho nioro recognition of bol
ligercicy. If Ireland struck for
liberty today, tho hearts of tho
American peoplo would beat iu
sympathy and so with Poland or
Hungary was associated tbo right
of liberty. But tlio United States
had much closer relations with
Cuba than with Ireland or Poland
or Hungary, for it was a part of
tho westorn hemisphere, over
which tbo Monroe doctrine ex
tended tho inilueuco of this coun
try. Mn Mills declared tho Mon
roe doctrine was a law of protec
tion and as such God was tho au
thor of it. It was tho same right
of self protection, which tho indi
vidual exorcises in abating a nui
sanco or destroying a powder houso
near his promises. Jellorson had us
ed plain words in threatening to
jOiuEngland and sweep thoFrouch
ihjots from tho soas if Franco per
sisted in holding tho mouth of
tho Mississippi river. Tho Bamo
spirit had brought forth Prosidont
Cleveland's mossago. Cuba stood
as tho koy to tho gulf and our un
varying polioyj Baid Mr. Mills,
hod boon to resist any transfer of
Cuba to anotbor monarchy. The
United States had stood by as a
jaijor and provonted Cuba from
going to Franco or England.
And, if wo insist on keeping Cuba
in tbo possession of Spain, was it
not tho moral obligation of tbo
United Statos to seo tbat Spain
guvo Cuba fair government, and
seo tbat tho boll of Spanish des
potism was lifted from tho Cuban
Tho day will como, said Mr.
Mills, whon tho American con
Bcionco will bo aroused to its guilt
in permitting tho oppression of
Cubans and whon that conscious
ness comes, tho American peoplo
will fill this chamber with sonators
who will stop tho oppression. Tho
sonator road accounts of atrocities
attributed to Gen. "Woylor, aud
nddod: "This is tho work of tho
atrocious scoundrel. Ho could
not bo in Cuba today if tboUnitod
Statos would draw her Bword.
How tbo cheeks of our American
womon must ba suffused, how our
ohildrou must blush, to know that
this government stands idly by,
whilo Spain with tho keys of hor
dungeons dangling at hor side,
pormits suohjin atrocious villain
to raiso his band against dofonso
Tho protection which Spain
guvo to Cuba was tho protection
which tho hawk gives to tho dove.
Cuba cries to us: "Doliyer us
from theso Jiuonstors," but wo
stand mcokly, sorving only as
Spain's jailor. In tbo senator's
own Btato of Texas, thoy had, bo
said, drunk of tbo dregs of Span
ish brutality. Ho related tbo cir
cumstances of tho annihilation of
Santa Ana's forces on Toxas soil
and reviewed tho bloodiness of tbo
Virginius affair. To tbo shamo
of this government wo had per
mitted tbo Virginius ntrocity
to Btand almost without reparation.
For fifty-tbreo peoplo butchorcd
by Spain whilo rightfully claim
ing the protection of tho United
Statos, aftor a diplomatic corres
pondence of years Spain paid
Mr. Stewart asked if Spanish
bonds woro not a potont fuclor in
Mr. Mills replied that thoro was
something beneath tbo surface;
ho did not know what the myste
rious force was, but he folt that it
existed. He did not know bow
far sugar stocks would bo affected
by action on the p;rt of tho
Lnitod Sttitcs. It was asserted
that trade would suffer, but Mr.
Mills declared that a hundred bil
lion dollars would bo a small ox
pondituro for tbo glory of releas
ing tlio prisoners on tho Island of
l?inoj. it was the duty of tho
United Slate- lo protect and re
lievo thin people, or olse to say to
England or Russia: '"Tnko that
island and protect its people."
Until wo do this, a stock of bloody
guilt is on our bands.
Boferring to tho objections
coming from commercial sources,
Mr. Mills quoted tho words of
Goldsmith: "Honor fails when
commorco long provails." The
sonator said ho had just received
a letter assorting that "another
fool has turned jingo' and asking
him why ho had not left jingoism
to Mr. Lodgo and Mr. Chandler.
Tho letter was signed "A Disgust
ed Domocrnt." "Now, if I had
tho X rays," saidMr. Mills, "and
used it in examining tho pocket of
tho writor of that lettor, I would
find sugar Btock there." Tho sen
ator closed with a figurativo pic
turo of Cuba lying hko a cripple
at our gate with extended arms
and Bhrunkon cheek, crying:
"Help us; help us." Thero was a.
ripplo of applause as Mr. Mills
