Sixty-Fourth Day, May- 12th.
Alter tho usual pioliiuinancs in
tho Senate this morning a com
munication was recoivod from tho
Houso concerning bills laid on
tho table and passed.
Senator Wtitcrhouso from tho
Piuanco Committee, to whom was
referred tho deficiency appropria
tion bill, reported favorably on
tho same, but called attontion to a
discrepancy of $002 in tho footings
of the total.
Senator Lyman from tho Com
mitteo on Public Lands reported
a slight amendment to tho bill
Senator Lyman offered tho fol
lowing joint resolution which was
Whereas it baa iu the past been
tho announced policy, both of tho
Provisional Government and of
tho ltopublic of Hawaii, to advo
cate tho annexation of Hawaii to
tho United States of America;
Aud whoroas tho Legislature of
tho Republic of Hawaii is now iu
regular session assembled, nud
will soon adjourn for a cousidor
And whoroas it is fitting that
tho olocted representatives of tho
peoplo should placo themselves on
record as to tho present state of
feeling among thomselvcs and
their constituents upon this sub
13E it Hesolved by tho Senate
and tho Houso of Eoprosontativos
that tho Legislature of tho Repub
lic of Hawaii continues to bo, as
heretofore, firmly and steadfastly
in favor of annexation to tho
United States of Amorica, and in
advocating such policy thoy aro
expressing not only their senti
ments but thoso'of an overwhelm
ing majoiity of tho lawful 'voters
Tho Olork i ported that tho
President had refused to sign tho
resolution passed by tho Sonato
concerning tho destruction of
postago stamps on November 1st,
on tho ground that tho samo was
not n joint resolution.
On motion tho Finance Com
mitteo wroro instructed to bring
in a joint resolution embodying
tho main points of tho former res
olution. Senator Lyman read bis Act to
defino tho Btreets of tho town of
Hilo. Referred ' to tho Printing
Act 35, relating to Kapiolani
park, was taken up under unfin
Roforring to Section 5, which
gives tho Commissioners powor to
chargo foes in certain cases, Sen
ator Baldwin said ho boliovcd in
keeping tho park froo. Tho
difiiculty, however, seemed to
bo with tho raco track. There
was no othor placo near
tho city where ii rnco track could
bo provided. Ho thought au
exception might bo made with tho
rnco courso on certain occasions.
Sonator Rrown said tho govorn
mont had never paid a single cont
towards keoping up tho track. Tho
Jockey Club had orected all tho
presont improvement nt its own ex
pense. Tho bill did not providofor
any admission feo to tho park.That
was free at all times, ovon to tho
races. Peoplo could go to tho races
without chargo if they looked
ovor tho fence, but if thoy used
the promises and convoniouces of
tho Jockoy Club thoy must expect
to pay a littlo something.
Section 5 finally passed as in
tho bill aftor considerable dobato.
On motion of Sonator McCand
less tho vote of yesterday on
Section 2 was reconsidered, and
tho section amended.
The balance of tho bill passed
and it was made tho special order
Semite Rill 41, known as tho
deficiency appropriation bill, was
taken up, Minister l)uumi tA-
nlninine the itciim ns tln-v i-mm !
When tho itom of $491.20 for
incidentals in tho Custom Houso ,
uepartmont camo up, tuc Minister
explained that $300 of tho amouut
was for an attorney feo for V. It.
Castle for drawing up a number
of Acta for his brother, tho Collector-General,
and 851.70 for
typewriting tho same. Tho Col
lector had had this work done ou
his own lesponsibility. TIio gov
ernmon't know that it was being
douo but had not authorized tho
work. Tho sovoral Acts prepared
wore in the possession of tho
government and were of considor
ablo value, but so far no uso had
been lrindo of thnm.
Sonator Rrown said ho "cSuld
not go back ou tho bill of a broth
er lawyer, but tho principlo in
volved in Us payment was what
troubled him. IE the Sonnto paid
this bill tho rulo would bo laid
down that any head of a doparU
mont might involvo tho govern
ment in expense without the con
sent of his superior officer. This
could not bo allowed and to pay
tho bill would establish a very
Sonator Holstein moved to
striko off $351.70 from tho
amount and insert tho itom of
$139.50. Ho considered tho wholo
matter a very presumptuous piece
of business on tho part of tho
Seuator McCandloss said it was
establishing a very bad precedent
to pay such bills. It was unheard
of that such should even be pre
sented to tho Legislature. If peo
plo wanted to druw up bills for
tho government lot them got tho
proper authorization from thoir
superiors or olse do it at thoir
own oxpense. Ono of tho bills
had already caused n great deal
of troublo to tho country although
it hnd not mudo its appoaranco in
Senator Holstoin's amondmont
Tho remaining items passed as
in the bill.
Houso Rill 21, relating to
fencing ou or adjoining govern
ment lands, with tho report of tho
Committee was taken up. Tho
report was adoptodtwhich carried

Ono of tho boasts of tho Hawai
ian Islands has beon tho variety
of olimato within thoir borders.
At tho samo timo ono of tho great
est deficiencies in tho country has
boon that of accommodation for
peoplo at placos whoro tho climate
affords au agreeable and whole
somo change from that of tho city.
Of late years thoro has beon a
considerable improvement in this
rospoct, comfortable country hotels
having boon oponod at various
placos whefd tho air is bonoficial
The new Volcano House, ou the
tho brink of tho crator of Kilauea,
Hawaii, is by far tho largest and
best-equipped of country estab
lishments in tho islands. Thoro
has beon a hotol at tiiis point for
a groat many years owuod and
oporatocf by a succession of pro
prietors. In 1891 a joint stock
company acquired the privileges'
of tho sito and erected a largo and
comoly structure, preserving tho
old building, however, as an an
nex. Tho hotol as it now stands
contains twenty bed chambers, all
roomy and tho largest 14 foot by
10 feet, besides which thoro is a
neat cottage for families or parties.
Tho bridal chamber, situated iu a
tower projection, has four win
dows looking nut at difforont
angles, giviilg tho appearance and
tuo benohts of a largo bay win
dow. Tho scenery from all tho
front chambers includes the crater
of Kilaaoa and tho vast domo of

Whon tho volcano is, in oho of its

placos for uso as required in tho
hotel, the favorito boiug that in tho

Kilauea or that of Mauua Loa. On
its muntol front is a realistic paint

Kitchen, pantry and storeroom
aro all ample in proportions and'
convenient. The kitchen is sup

sulphur vapor from tho bowolB of

so that strict privacy is obtained.

tion with many parts of tho island
by toiopiiono, and quite n stream
of tra'ol calling nt tho door to
koop human interest alive. Tho
Hawaiian newspapers aro all
taken, bosides many of tho lead
ing American papers and maga
zines. Tho "Records" of tho
Volcano Houpo for more than a.
generation furnish a most ngreo
ablo sourco of information and"
ontortaiument. Hero aro found
tho autograph impressions of Ki
lauea and Mauna Loa by a large
number of tho loading foreign
residents of tho past nnd Hooting
gonorotion, by tho royalties of
Hawaii, by pooplo funny and by
peoplo who only try to be, by
scientific men and mon who only
look on tho surfneo of things in

of fino print pasted in, consisting
of Mark Twain's newspaper lottors
on his visit to Hawaii, also an
autograph paper on "Dreams" by
tho Bamo famous humorist.
Skotchos and plans of tho crators
thoro aro, plain aud colored, in
endless number. Indeed, any

From its oponiug Hip olcano
Houso has boon under tlio man
agement of. Captain Rotor Lee,
whom Rev. Dr. Dillo has rightly
styled a "princo of goodfollows."
Ho had proviously won a high
reputation as a Ronifaco by the
superb houso ho kopt at Puualuu,
tho lauding placo iu Kau for
Volcano passengers. Captain
Loo is also blessed by traveloro to
this world's wonder for having
built tho carringo road from Pahala
above Punaluu to tho volcano.
Nobody on tho islands has oxorted
himself more or succeeded botlor
iu promoting tourist travel
thithorward. Ho is ono of those
men who placos tho dutios of his
position before everything" olse,
whoso motto is "Rusinoss boforo
pleasure." Captain Loo koops a
sharp oyo on every detail of
management, and no slipshod
work on tho part of tho hotel ro
tinuo can long escapo detection
and correction. An oyidouco of
his zealous regard for appearances
moots tho guest boforo ho enters
tho building, in tho form of a
boautiful and well-kept garden in
f rout and nt ono end. It iB artis
tically laid out in bods, annular
and angular in shapes with
graveled walks between. There
aro central growths of stately tree
ferns, Burroundod with healthy
roso bushoB and many othor
favorite flowering Burubs and
plants. Tho veranda is bordered.
wUh a profuso growth of calla
lilies in splendid bloom. Evory
two .weeks Captain Loo has the
outer walls of tho hotol, both front
and roar, washed down to iomovo
tho stains caused by tho abound
ing subtorrauoan vapors.
Horses aro kopt on hand for tho
uso of guosts visiting tho crater
and othor points of interest iu tho
neighborhood. Thoro is regular
stage communication with Hilo
every alternate day each way, with
Ned Rogart, an experienced, care
ful and polite California driver,
on tho box; also connection with
steamors at Punaluu. At tho Vol
cano Houso ono can havo quiet
and rest, in a most rovivifyiug at
mosphere, without being cut off
from communication with tho out
sido world. Not only strangors
but residents of Honolulu can
horo find recuperation from tho
offoots of too much confinement or
protracted dovotion to business.
It ib just tho placo, too, for school
childron enervated by attontion to
thoir lessons in tho hot and dusty
city atmosphoro. D. L.
