some novels. Including "Talcs from a

The legislation of' Congress In respect
to our commercial and diplomatic rel.i.
Hons with Hawaii was apparently In
tended to pave the way for ultima lo
annexation of Hawaii to this country.
It would seem that the Hawaiian peo
ple under theso circumstances would
havo been thoroughly imbued with tha
American spirit and prompt to adopt
every measure and policy calculated to
promote the principles of republican
government In the Islands. And yet,
whllo it Is claimed by those, who nra
familiar with tho situation In Hawaii,
that Delegate Wilcox Is a representa
the native of the Island, surprise h:u
been expressed by members of the
United States Commission, who were
sent to Hawaii to Investigate affairs
there, that following annexation and
tho giving of a Territorial government
to Hawaii, the people there choso as
their first representative one who had
for' many years been somewhat a war
like leader of royal forces In the revr,
lutlonary movements In Hawaii.''

When the Senate met this morning.
It was found that Senators Ualdwln and
Kanuhn were abseut. The latter had
been excused by the chair previous to
tbe beginning of the session. Mr. Ka
lauokalant presented a petition from
ninety tnxpaers of the Territory of
Haw-all asking for the extension of
Fort street above School street In Ho
nolulu as provided for by nn Act ot the
Legislature of the Session of 189G and
again provided fur In the Session of
139S. This petition was referred to
tho Public Works Committee.
Mr. Kalaunkalanl presented another
petlttop from fifty-seven taxpayers of
the Territory of Hawaii praying for
an appropriation of J1.S0O for grading
and macadamizing the road sltunted

and leading from Nuuanu street to

The majority of tho Judlclarv

of the Territory of Hawaii for
tho succeeding biennial period was
referred, respectfully begs to re
port that they hate carefully ex
amined and considered said esti
mates and while the majority of
tho committee aro of tno opinio!
that many of the estimates are ex
travagant and even prodigal, be
ing wholly in a number of In
stances out of all proportKn to
the necessities and requirements of
tho public service and the public
needs, we deem it unnecessary at
this time. If not n waste of time

mate in detail. The hilts to pro

formed by the present Territorial
officers will nlso limit to a much
smaller compass than that which
they now enjoy tho Jurisdiction,
power, authority nnd duty of such
officers and tho number of assist
ants and clerks employed by them
until such hills are either passed or

the necessary appropriations would
only be speculative. Imaginary and
altogether without profit. Tho
majority beg to say that they as

ty nnd municipal government will

For the reasons given, and In vlw

quest that they be given further

Mr. Whltn moved that the report of
the majority of tho commltteo b
adopted and this was seconded by Mr.
Mr, Achl aroso to a point ot order,
stating that tho communication was
not a report but a request for farther
time. The chair sustained tho point of
order of Mr. .lehl nnd stated that th
communication from the commlttra
was not a report.
Mr, Achl then moved that every
part of tho purported report, with tho
exception of that part In which tho re
quest for further time was made, bo
stricken out. He.would put this as an
amendment lo the motion ot Mr. Ka
lauokalanl to adopt tho report nf the

Mr. Whllo appealed from thn ruling
ot tho chair with regard to tho report

Mr Kalauokalanl moved the adop
tion of the report and this motion was
seconded by Mr Kaobl. At this point
MrAch! aroso fcfc iSifnitnf order, stat
ing that the purported report of th
majority ot the committee was directly
against Rule 11 of the Senate rules, and
therefore out ot order.
The chair replied that he could not
decide on the point until the journal
ot the Senate, in which was contained
the motion referring tho estimates of
the Oovcrnor to the Judiciary Commit
tee could be produced. He had no Idea
whnt the motion was nnd what specific
details wero embodied therein.
Mr. Carter moved that tho wuota
matter he laid on the table until later,
In order to allow tho clerk tltno to se
cure the Journal referred to. This mo
tion wns lost, the vote being the same
as In the previous motion.
At this point, Mr. C. Drown who
made the motion, during the first days
ot the session, told the chair Just what
was Included In the motion and tho
clerk, stating that this was substantial
ly how the motion appeared on tbe
Journal, tbe chair rendered his dcclsloa
to the effect that the majority of the
committee did not follow out' the In
structions given them by tho Senat
and therefore the report wns out of or
der. Mr. Carter moved that tbe Scnata
take a recess until 1:30 o'clock. This
wns duly seconded but tho majority
wantsd the matter of the report of the
Judiciary Committee settled before
leaving the hall.
Mr. Achl arose and asked to read a
report of a part of the Judiciary Com
mittee on Senate Dill 20. The chair
stated that the Senator was out of or
der; Mr. Achl insisted that, since th
report of the majority of the Judiciary
Committee had been ruled out of order
and no appeal from the ruling of tha
chair had been taken Immediately, ha
had the right to go ahead on somo oth
Tho chair stated that ho did not havo
any recollection of having recognized
htm and therefore he was out of order.
Messrs. C. Drown nnd Carter Insisted
that the chair had recognized Mr. Achl.

of tho chair by which tho report of tho

as being contrary to Rule 43 of tha
