Committee on tho Loan Bills, as
Tho special committee to whom
was referred Bills 18, 19, 20 and
21, boing commonly called tho
Loan Bills, beg leave to report as
follows: Number 18, boing tho
Act to authorize tho consolidation
of tho public debt, they recom
mend bo laid on the tablo.
In the opinion of this
committee tho timo has not ar
rived for tho undertaking of tho
consolidation of tho public dobt
on account of our proposed po
litical union with tho United
States as woll as upon tho ground
of policy. It is conceded that
Loudon is tho financial center of
tho world and it would bo there
wo would havo to look for the sum
needed and necessary for that
purpose. It is certain that tho
dobt could not bo consolidated
hero, and wo do not know what
could bo dono in tho Uuited
States, all inquiries having been
made in London. Tho greater
part of tho bonds now issued aro
hold hero, and consequently tho
money collected nii mtorost is
spent hore. In tho event of a con
solidation of tho whole dobt and
tho taking up of tho now bonds
by a foreign syndicate, tho proba
bilities aro that thoy would all bo
takon up abroad, and consequent
ly tho intorest would all bo sent
away and would thus be a con
tinued drain on tho country. A
consolidation of tho public dobt
on tho lines laid out by Bill 18
should tako pluco sometime, as it
will ,1)0 a great saving in intorost
to tho country, but tho committoo
boliovo that tho mattor should bo
more looked inio and tonus ob

twneu now and tho next Hussion of

Bum of 12(5,755. The Minister
of Financo informed this commit
teo that the annual averago home
Balo for bonds was in tho neigh
borhood of $222,000. The com
milleo are aware that if tho pro
jected internal improvements aro
to bo carried 'on more money
must bo obtained and by a homo
loan if possible. Our bonds ure
selling in tho London market at
a premium and horo at par. Wo
believe that a home loan for $500,
000 would bo taken hero and
without loss in tho way of dis
co'int1 and commissions and at par,
but it is fair to make boiuq provi
sion that can bo made uao q if
,Wo thoroforo suggest that tho
Exeoutivo Council tako into con
sideration tho placing of a loan
for tho sum of $500,000, tho bonds
to bo sold not less than 98 and in

for which tho inonoy is to bo spent

tho loan, and that such act bo sub

Sonator Schmidt presonted tho
following minority report:
"In behalf of Senator H. P.
Baldwin and mysolfj mombors of
your special committee on Loan
Bills 18, 19, 20 and 21, 1 bog loavo
to report as follows:
''No.'s 18 and 19. Wo aro of
opinion that nuthority should bo
given to tho Minister of Financo
under theso acts to consolidate or
to refund tho so-called London
Loans (about ono million dollars)
whenever a favorable opportunity
offers itself, but at a rate of intor
est not exceeding 4J per cont. and
at a discount and commission not
exceeding 10 por cent, and wo so
"Nob. 20 and 21. Wo aro in
favor of a loan not exceeding ono
million dollars and to givo Ha
waiian investors tho preference.
"I am authorized to stato that
Senator H. P. Baldwin, concurs in
this minority report, but on ac
count of his dopartnro wo had no
timo to agreo on f urthor particu
lars and I thoroforo respectfully
submit, aunoxod to this report, my
individual arguments and sug
gestions. H. W. Schmidt."
In his argument Sonator
Schmidt says wo should not defer
any improvement in our financial
affairs on account of tho prospect
of political union with tho United
States. Such union is uncortain
and has been awaited for a long
time. Wlmtovor is done in tho
shapo of refunding, tho intorest
aud discount in every caso should
bo a great deal lowor than in the
bills beforo tho Senate, and tho
now bonds should run from 30 to
60 years at tho Government's
option to redeem Booner. A num
ber of years' savings in in
torest aro required to mako
up for tho loss in discounts
and expenses. On tho bill to re
fund tho outstanding debt tho
Sonator recommends tho limit bo
81,000000 of bonds for tlio re
demption of tho bonds held in
Jjouilon only with interest at lj
por cent and a discount of not
more than 8 por cent.
With regard to tho issuing of
bonds for intornal improvements
ns provided in Bills 20 and 21 tho
Senator says it is evident tho im
provements must bo made and the
i monoy must bo had somewhere.
j Tho appropriations asked for un
' dor this loan act aro not at hand
yet but thoy will bo in tho neigh
borhood of $1,000,000, and thoro
' foro the loan might safoly bo lim
ited to that figure. It is desir-iblo
that homo capital should ouvo tho
! preference if tho boniln aro taken
I at par or 2 per cont discount. If
' tho bonds can't bo sold hero there
is no mason thoy should nut go
oUowlioro. In tho latter ovont.
