The Senate met at 9:30 o'clock this
forenoon, and transacted business for
a halt an hour when an adjournment
was taken on account of the joint scs
slon set for 10 o'clock.
The first business done was tho read
Ing and adoption of the following re
port of the Committee on Educntlon
nnd Public Health to whom was refer
red Senato bill 40, entitled "An Act to
regulate the observance of Sunday":
The bill changes the present law
somewhat, making It In some partlcu-.
lars stricter, and In other particulars
As the bill stands, It would require.
In the opinion of your committee, sev
eral changes and amendments, and as
the Legislature has before It more work
than It can faithfully accomplish before
the termination of the session, we re
commend that tho bill be laid on the
H. P. BALDWIN.
Mr. Baldwin then rei I the following
report of the Committee on Education
and Public Health, to whom was refer
red Senate bill No. 29. entitled "An
Act relating to licensed physicians":
The object of the bill Is to make It
easy 'for the Board of Health to seruro
medical assistant in coses of unusual
ly serious epidemics or unusual public
Your commltteo would recommend
that the words "free of cost to the Ter
ritory of Hawaii." on lines t nnd E,
of section 1, be stricken out. nnd that
a new section be Insrrted as follows:
"Section 2 Tho Ilojrd of Health Is
hereby authorized to remunerate physi
cians they may call upon to nsslst In
suppressing any unusual epidemic, or
In case of any unusual public disaster,
by paying them nn nmount not exceed,
Ing ono hundred dollars a month; pro
vided, however, that this provision
docs not apply to physicians In the
employ of tho Board of Health who nre
drawing regular salaries."
The Insertion of this section will
change the numbering of the remain
ing sections ot the bill.
I concur in the above report, except
ing that I recommend the physicians
be allowed to the extent of two hun
dred dollars, In tho section it Is pro
posed to Insert in the Mil.
H. P. BALDWIN.
This report was laid nn the table to
be considered with the bill.
At this point, Mr. Baldwin made tho
following minority report of tho com
mittee to whom had been referred
House bill 9 nnd Senato bill 43, both
relating to vaccination nnd repealing,
the laws making vaccination compul
sory: Th mlnnrllv nf vnur rnmmlttee lines
not recommend tho passage of either
of tho above bills, for the following
Slnco the discovery of vaccination by
Tenner, small pox has not been the ter
rlbl. scourge to humanity that It was'000 tons of an8 wl ho rcadj' t0 ,,e
before this discovery.
Scientific and medical men agree as
to the efficiency of vaccination ns a
menns ot preventing the spread of tho
disease. In former centuries, before
the discovery of vaccination, no dUense
was more dreaded, or destroyed more
It has been calculated that In the
last century from 7 to 12 per cent of
deaths from all diseases wero due to
At the present day, In countries
whero vacolnatlon la regularly practic
ed, tho proportion has been reduced to
7-10 of 1 per cent; and, In countries
I hero vaccination has been compul
sory, small pox has been almost entire
ly suppressed. Formerly human vac
cine virus was often used, nnd methods
of vaccinating were imperfect, and
there Is danger of transmitting other
diseases from ono person to another.
Now, however, nothing but tho l.est nf
bovine virus Is used, taken from a
healthy calf, and nil danger of trans
mitting dlseaso Is dono nwny with.
Wo must not forget what a torrlble
scourge Bmall pox was In Hawaii In the
year 1853, beforo tho people were vac-
clnated, when several thousands of
people were carried off hy this terrlblo
disease. Smnll pox has been brought
to these shores at l-Mit tw.es slnco
then, but largely owing ' vaccination,
did not spread.
All important lines of steamers In thi
Paclfle touch nt Honolulu, nnd ravel 1
nnd commerce in the Pacific Is i.ipldly
Increasing. There Is always mule or
less small pox In the Orli-ntal countries
bordering the Pacific, nnd Jutt now
there are cases of small pox scattered
throughout the United States.
It behooves us, therefore, to be more
vigilant than ever In our efforts to pre
vent this dread disease from sprcidlng
In Hawaii, and we should not. In the
Interest of the HawalUr.s and ot pub
lic health, entertain for a mon.'nl the
proposition of repealing the laws ret.it
Ing to vaccination.

Robert W. Wilcox, Hawaii's Delegate
to Congress, returned to Honolulu In

He had Intended returning In a regular
steamer about a week ago but his son
took cold and prevented his leaving at
the Intended time. Being a Congress
man. Mr. Wilcox had no trouble in se
curing passage In the Hancock. Seen
this forenoon, Mr. Wilcox said to n
"1 nm here tor a month or two
months nt the longest. My family Is
In Washington and I must .to, back
there. The next session of Congress Is
of course In December nnd I shall wait
In the States for that time. During the
Interim we will very probably go to tho
"No, I am not here to watch over
the doings ot the Legislature. My prln
clpal reason for being hero may bo
found In the fact that there are certain
private business affairs which I must
see to personally. Of course, I shall
watch with Interest what Is dono in the
Legislature and I shall give advlc
when 1 am asked.
"You ask me what was done for Ha
wnll at the last session of Congress.
Well, unfortunately, some very Import
ant bills were set aside, but I expect
that, during the next tpsslon, Hawaii
will receive more consideration.
"I might. In the first place, sny some
thing about the protests that were
launched against me. As you know, I
came out on top. and one nf my bitter
est antagonists. Judge (Icorge D. Rear,
will come back to Honolulu my friend.
"I was very frank about the whole
matter of the letter writing. I told
them Just exactly how the whole thing
was. I admitted halng written to Mo
reno nnd nil that kind of thing nnd I
gold Mr. Taylor, the ihalrmnn of the
I Committee on Klectlons those facts.
However. 1 stated further thnt circum
stances hnd changed. Tho United
States had given us a good Organic Act
for which all Hawallnns, myself Includ
ed, were most thankful. I told him that
I was a full fledged American believ
ing in American Institutions. What
bad happened In the past was buried
"All these protests against mo result
ed to my advantage rather than to my
detriment and I made friends and sym
"Now then, something about the
measures for Hawaii. In tho first
place, there wns a bill for tho survey
of harbors and rivers of tho United
Rtnt,,g- Hawaii was included In this
but Hawaii, like all tho other States
and Territories suffered because the
Mil, cnllir, for an appropriation of
$.10,000,000. was killed.
"Then camp the revenue cutter mat
ter, appropriating n quarter of n mil
lion dollars. This went to conference,
It wns found that the sundry appro
priation bill must needs be reduced, nnd
Hawaii agnln suffered.
"Again, there was n provision for a
commission to investigate the land
laws of the country for tho purpose of
making now laws, the United 8tates not
believing In doing anything but selling
- 1 outrglt or gvng away public lands.
This wns withdrawn nnd Mr. linns-
brough tried to provldo for a Senate
commltteo. This matter wns referred
to the Commltteo on Contingent Funds
and this committee, saying something
nbout Junketing trips, pigeon holed the
whole thing. Again Hawaii suffered.
"However, we have $12,000 for the
experiment stntton here. Then you
know about the $3,000,000 bill for tho
HOUSE SHORT SE68I0N.
The House was quite late In conven
ing this morning. Quito a number of
tho Representatives were absent, but
came wandering In during tho reading
of tho minutes.
The minutes wero longer than usual,
but wero adopted without objection
Pendergnst then moved that tho House

Tho motion wns carrleJ.
After tho adjournment of tho Joint
session, the Houso went on with its
regular order of business.

The rules wero then suspended and

The sum of IS300 wns asked for by
the residents of Kauai for road Im

that $16,000 be appropriated for ths
building of breakwaters on the Walmea
The Hlloltes asked that fCOOO for thi

sensation by Introducing n resolution,
asking that a committee of three be ap
