Minister Cooper announced tho
policy of the Government to be
tho introduction of Portuguese or
other Euronenn familiGH. which
could bo effected nt a cost of S135 !
for each family. At tho expira
tion of their labor contracts it
was expected thoso immigrants
would become useful settlers.
Tho bill to provide for condemn
ation of lands deleterious to public
health, if their owners neglect to
improve them, passed.
The bill creating tho Depnrt
raont of Public Instruction-iiSas
Adjourned at 4:50.
Thoro were sovoial empty scats
in tho House this morning.
Rop. ltycroft presented a report
of tho public lauds committee, on
petition from Puna for 815,000 for
a road, recommending that it bo
granted. Tabled for considera
tion wjth appropriation bill.
Tho Somite bill rolatingto poits
of entry passed third reading.
Tho bill relating to appoals
passed second rending.
Tho bill to provide for keoping
records of births, deaths and mar
riages, on second reading, was
considered section by section in
committee of thg whole, Pop. Ha
nuna in tho chair. On motion of
Rop. Kamauoha, the committee
roso and reported, recommending
tho passage of tho bill. Adopted,
and bill ordered read a third timo
when roportcd as typewritten.
Pep. Kamauoha moved to take
up tho appropriation bill for cur
rout receipts. Carried.
Tho now item, "Eoad from Pa
hoa to head of Pycroft's road,
15,000," was read by the secre
tary. Pep. Pycroft moved a suspen
sion of tho lules, lu lmvo tho bill

to consider it item by item on Sec

Pop. RichardB moved to insoit,
"Pay of Portuguoso interpreter

Minister Coopor, on tho mili
tary items, said tho Auditor-General

Minister Damon interjected that
suoh a ruling was not suppoited
by anything in tho bill. Tho pro
rata paynionts only applied to
salaries and pay rolls. It would
be impossible to apply tho rule to
othor expenditures. For instance,
if a bridgo was built it might re
quire the payment of a whole ap
propriation nt onco.

Aftor the usual preliminaries a
communication was read from tho l
Houso transmitting two bills
which had passed.
Senator Lyman loported that
jointy'resolution 14, relating to
postage stamps, had been presont
'dHttho President for his signa
ture. Srtuntor Pnltlwin from tho Coin-
initio on Commorce reported
buck tho bill admitting California
wines duty freo without furthor
House Bill 12, nn Act to pro
vide for tho improvement of land,
deleterious to public health, wua
taken up ou fust rending and
pnssed. Undor subponsion of tho
lules tho bill was lead a second
timo by title and referred to tho
Committee on Public LandB.
House Bill 47, to oronto tho Dn
parhnont of Public Instiuction
and define' its duties and powers,
waB read tho first timo nud passed.
Under suspension of tho rules tho
bill was read n second timo by
title nnd referred to tho Commit
too on Education.
On motion Sonntor Brown was
excused from acting on tho In
come Tax bill and Senator Bald--win
appointed in his place.
On motion Senator Wntorhouso
was substituted for Senator Brown
on tho Conference Committeo on
tho Internal Taxes bill.
Sounto Bill 48, rolatinc to tho
importation of California wines,
was taken up on second reading,
with tho report of tho Committeo
Senntor Baldwin said ho had
asked to have tho bill Bent back
to tho committeo with tho idea of
ombodyinc in it some legislation
regarding sako and othor dolotor
Voub drinks. They had found
grunt difficulty in doing so, aud
tho only wny would bo to directly
attack sako. To do this would
involve thogovornmontin possible
trouble with Japan. They favored
tho bill as it was carrying out tho
idea embodied in tho prcsont law,
which raised tho duty on stronc
alcoholic liquors nnd lowered it
on weak ones. Tho only troublo
ho saw was in the consequent loss
of revenue. Howovor, ho should
favor the passage of tho bill.
Senator Lyman said tho Senate
should remombor that tho Liquor
Commission had reported threo
hills which covered tho ontiro
question. This bill should bo
considered in connection with tho
Sonntor Schmidt said tho pres
ent bill had nothing to do with
any of tho others. The sako and
beer issues should not bo dragged
into tho prosont discussion.
Senator Rice suggested that as
the matter was in tho nnturo of
an experiment, tho timo of tho
free importation might bo reducod
to two years instead of iivo. ,
Sonator Holstoin said tho bill
would woik n hardship to Hawaii
an wine-makers, who under tho
prosont law havo to pay storage
aud othor chargos, which import
ers of California wines escape
Senator Baldwin said thero had
beon laws on tho statuto book for
years to boueflt tho Hawaiian
wino makers, but thoy did not
seom to have xirosporcd to any ox
tont. Tho reason wns thoy woro
too near to tlio California market
whoro a better article could bo
produced at a lower cost.
