Aftor tho usual preliminaries
in tho Senate iliia morning a
communication was received from
Henry Smith of tho Judiciary
department, enclosing tho conclu
ding pages of tho Chief Justice's
Senator Hocking presented a
potition from Maui askiug for a
dirocl road from Mnkenn to Kula,
and presenting maps and data in
connection thcrowith. Tho poti
tion had 100 signors and was re
ferred to tho Committeo on Pub
Senator Brown from tho Judi-,
ciary Committeo prosonted a re
port on Senato Bill No. 24, con
cerning elections for which there
aro only ono candidate, recom
mending tho passage of tho bill
with some minor amondmonts.
Tho samo Senator roported also
in favor of tho passage of Bill
No. 31, concerning incorporated
companies, and House Bill 23,
concerning legacy duties.
Senator Holstoin from tho
Special Committeo on tho Portu
guese p?titions, nsked for furthor
Attorney. General Smith"' for tho
Minister of Interior presented a
bill to provido for tho permanent
settlement of Kapiolani park. Bo-
terreu to tno rrinting Commit
teo. Minister Domon offered a reso
lution to tho affect hat all post
ngo stamps reniaining unsold at
tho general Postoflico on Novem
ber 1st bo destroyed. Tho Min
ister explained that this action
was desirable as many of tho
stamps on hand of various deno
minations w'-ro useless, owing to
tho action of tho woathor on tho
mucilago and from othor causes.
Tho resolution was roforred to tho
Ministor Damon, under suspen
sion of tho rules, introduced a bill
appropriating $750,000 for public
improvements. Referred to tho
Senator Holstoin gavo notice of
a bill amonding Section 1 of
Article 64 and Section 2 of Article
G5of tho Constitution. Tho bill
makes a chnngo in tho numbor of
Senators to bo elected from Ha
waii and Kauai.
Senator Holstoin propounded
tho following question to tho Min
istor of Finance:
Hoes the Executive contemplate
amonding tho Tariff Act of 1892
in rolation to an incroaso of du
ties oil wines and fermented drinks
wherein sake would have to pay a
heavier duty? If so would tho
proposed amendment bo brought
in this session? "Would you fur
nish tho Sonato with copies of the
treaty botweon Huwaii and Japan?
Aro there any provisions in tho
said treaty which prohibit this
government from increasing dut
ies on sake?
Under tho order of tho day
Minister Damon's four lonn bills
coino up on tho second reading.
Senator Brown, in order to
bring on a dobulo on the merits,
moved tho adoption of tho minor
Ministor Damon said tho ques
tion o consolidating tho debt lind
aroused so much public intcn-st
and elicited bo much consideration
from the Executive nnd Legisla
ting that ho could say vory.littlo
to what he had already said in
support of the bills.
"With regard to tho roport
of tho commitloo ho doubted tho
wisdom of hampering tho Execu
tive in thoir endeavor to bring
about a bettor state uf tlio financos
of tho country. Ho felt that tho
timo hnd arrived when wo must
miiko a radical chnngo on this
point. During tho long recossos
between Legislatures tho Execu
tive necessarily acted as a Com
mittee of Finance for tho wholo
country. They wero willinp lo
have a special committee of f ho
Legislature to confer with thoin
on all financial measures if deem
ed desirable. Ho favored imme
diate action, saying that tlio coun
try could not afford to wait two
years. Under increased and
more rapid communication with
tho outside world tho Executixo
wore met with questions
which demanded immediate
action. Tho cable matter, for in
stnnco, might bo settled nt any
moment and the government
should bo prepared and empower
ed to act on'it nt onco. He de
precated any chango in tho bills
which would provent tho govern
ment carryiqg out its projected
and thoir effort to bring about a
better state of tho national fin
ances. The Executivo havo no
wish to push this mcusuro in tho
interest of any linns or parties
but only for tho wolfnro of tho
Senator Brown said it must bo
apparent toovory ono that tho
Committeo does not favor tho
consolidation of tho wholo debt.
Tho great objection ho had to tho
present consideration of tho bill
was that tho Sonato had no data
to go on. No inquiries had been
mado in tho United States on tho
matter, nor was anything said
about what bearing tho consolid i
tion would havo on the question
of annexation. Tho committee
thought that somo data should bo
ascertained. Thoy had in mind
tho total and inystorious disap
pearance of 875,000 in connection
with tho placing of tho London
loan on tho market. A burnt
child dreads tho fire. Ho was
convinced that no bonds of less
than 50 years duration should bo
issued. The first question
to cousidor was, will tho
Legislature consolidate tho wholo
of tho debt, or only thnt portion
of it hold in London. "With re
gard to tho lattor ho had found
that its total amount was S980,000.
Ho submitted that 1,000,000 of
bonds would not bo sullicient to
tnko up tho London loan. AVo
should know and it was the duty
of tho Executivo to havo ascer
tained for us moro about what
tlioso bondB could bo placed for
in places other than London. AVo
havo abundant faith in tho Execu
tivo but wo really havo nothing
to go on. Tho people wnnt a
homo loan and tho Minister him
self says that $225,000 a year of
bonds havo been taken up for tho
last three years. Ho was afraid
of tho project to consolidate tho
wholo loan at tho present timo,
afraid that it would injuro our
prospects of annexation and
divert our financial mattors ontiro
ly into British chnunols.
Ministor Damon said before
ono could treat with any financial
institutions in Boston or othor
cities in tho United States ono
must bo able to show tho authori
ty under twhich thoy woro acting.
It wub tliiB authority tho Execu
tivo was now asking from tho
Sonator Baldwin said ho agreed
in tho main with all that Senator
Schmidt had embodied in his ro
port. AVhilo ho could not agroo
on tho proposition to refund tho
wholo debt ho thought tho timo
had come to refund tho Loudon
Loan under tho terms proposed
in tho minority roport. Why not
go ahead and refund thnt much,
and oncourngo a popular loan? If
London capitalists found wo woro
taking up our loans thoy would
soon bill higher for them. AVo
had boon chasing tho phantom of
annexation tor throo years now
and Tor all ho could eco wo should
bo chnuiug it for three or six years
more. Let us staud nlono in ii
nnncinl mattors. Wo can't wait
forever for annexation.
Ministor Damon in roply snid
that tlio first question asked in tho
United Stales when annexation
was broached was: How about
your finances? AVo havo shown
the I'tiitcd Status what wo can do
with uliolorn financially and other
wine. Lot us allow what wo can
do witli n worse disoaso, thnt of
paying 0 per cent interest. I don't
proposo to bother th United
States ono little bit about our fi
nances. If wo get annexation wo
don't want to go into the Union as
paupers or mendicants but on our
own terms. This Republic must
not be tho Blavo of capital. Tho
government must bo on top. AVo
aro willing to work with capital,
but not for it.
Sonator McCandlcss agreed
with provious speakers that tho
short duration of our bonds was
tho causo of thoir low prices. He
maintained that Minister Damon's
refunding bill in its present shape
was a damiigo to tho credit of tho
country and moved that tho Spo
cial Committee bo authorized to
bring in an Act authorizing tho
issuo of now bonds to the amount
of 3,155,000 to tnko up outstand
ing bonds amounting toS3,005,000
at an annual rate of intorest of 4
por cont, with a discount of not
moro than 3 por cont and commis
sions of not moro than 2 per cent.
In support of tho motion tho Sen
ator spoko long and earnestly
saying that mouoy has been bor
rowed in this city for the last fivo
years at 5 per cont. All tho
money needed can bo got hero so
ho was informed. If wo go
forth to tho world announcing
that wo havo bonds for salo at 15
por cent discount wo must neces
sarily injure our credit abroad.
As near as ho could ascertain
money was cheap now. Call
loans could bo negotiated at 1 por
cont and tho great trust companies
of tho United States woro freoly
loaning monoy on less security
than wo oil'ered at 3 and 4 per
cont. Ho was convinced tho
money could bd obtained on tho
terms laid out in his motion.
Ministor Damon Baid tho Chi
neso had a proverb that whon n
man was down in a well ho could
not sco tho horizon. Tho posi
tion of Hawaii was exactly that
of tho man in tho woll. If tho
United States could not got monoy
as cheap as Canada what was tho
uso of Hawaii trying to get monoy
cheaper than eithor. Tlio motion
of tho Sonator is a deliberate at
tempt to kill tho bills aud if
adopted will havo that effect.
Sonator McCandless--"Not so,
Mr. Minister, if wo can got monoy
horo for 5 por cont wo ought sure
ly to got it elsewhoro at 4."
Sonator Baldwin said tho Son
ato ought not to leavo tho bill in
such a shape that tho Minister of
I'inanco could do nothing; which
would bo tho effect of the motion.
Lot us first got tho London debt on
n moro favorable basis and thon
tackle tho balance. AVo must not
try to do too much at onco.
Senator Brown said tho ques
tion simply resolved itsolf
iuto this: Is it advisable to try
and cousolidnto tho London loan
now or wait for two years and
thou consolidate tho wholo?
After tho debate had concluded
a motion by Sonntor AVatorhouso
to adopt tho majority roport was
lost by tho following voto:
Ayes Kauhauo, Hooking,
Brown, AVatorhouso, AVilcox and
Noes Lyman, Northrup, Hol

Schmidt and AA'right 7.
Sonator McCandlcss' motion
was lost by a voto of 8 to 5.
The motion to adopt tho mino
rity report was lost by tho Bamo
voto, 8 to 5.
Senator Brown thon moved to
lay Bills 18 and 19 on tho tnblo.
Ministor Damon: "Thon tho
Sonator wants to placo tho wholo
responsibility of procrastinating
this issuo for two years moro on
tho Sonato 1"
Sonator Brown "I do."
Tho motion carried and tho two
bills woro killed for the present
