a certificate from the itegistrir
General of China whioh shall bo

is that thoBe certificates shall

Mr. Brown found tbo eighteen
Chinese "students" of tho Gaolio

beon prepared in Honolulu; the

from tho Chinese Registrar Gen

Mr. Brown immediately gave
notice to the Hawaiian officials
that papers were being issued
from the local office, whioh would
necessarily rosult in great hard
ship to ignorant Chinese whoso
looal friends desired that they ob
tain entrance to Hawaii. Tho
Collootor General called the mat
tor to tho attention of tho Minister
of Finance, and also found that
Mr. Girvin who had boon detailed
to assist Mr. Brown, had been in
tho habit of making out certifi
cates giving tho necessary descrip
tion of this or that "studont" in
China whoso local friend wished
to come to Honolulu. For those
certificates a fee of from $4 to 85
was charged bb jut. uirvin noiuB

Minister of Finance shows that 1
upwards of threo hundred certifi
cates of this obaraoter have boon

tho end is not yet in sight.
When Mr. Uirvin was before
the Cabinet to explain his action,
he maintained that he had a right
as Notary Fublio to make out
these certificates and it did not
nooessarily interfere with his
duties as assistant to United
States Speoial Agent Brown or as
an officor of the Custom House.
