Prayer by the Chaplain. Minutes of pre
ceding day read and approved.
Resolctioss. Mr. Wilder offered a resolu
tion that the bill to promote Ocean Steam
-Navigation bo read 3rd time on Tuesday, June
His Ex. C. deVarigny thought that if the
bill was ready, it should be read to-day. It
had been a hardly contested question, and the
sooner it was disposed or tne oeucr. tie did
not see what possible nervargumpts could be
brought up, and so be aarocated prompt ac
tion ; the bill had passed 2nd reading by a
Mr. A. F. Judd disagreed in regard to the
" handsome majority." It was carried by a
vote of 22 to 17, and it was well known that
two or three were neeoszaril absent who
would have voted against tLe bill. He sup
ported the motion of tne member lor ivoolauloa,
Mr. Keawehunahala supported the wish of
the Minister of Foreign Aflairs. The opposi
tion had had ever since last Friday to concoct
new arguments and talk with memsers. Toe
two sides on the question had mad up their
minds and would not change them, no matter
how much more discussion was made, or time
Mr. Hitchcock supported the motion of Nr.
Wilder. The Committee on Education wished
to attend the examination at Punahou, as well
as several other of the members.
His Exr C. de Varigny moved the prericus
question passed. Amendment to read to-lay
Resolution to postpone to Tuesday was lost.
On motion, the third reading was ordered
Mr. Keawehunahala moved to appropriate
S3uu for repair or a bridge at aiaiua.
U. II. W. C. Lunalilo offered a resolution
that liquor be provided with the daily lunch.
Mr. Lyons gave notice of a bill to amend
sections 4S3 and 489 of the Civil Code. He
also moved a reconsideration of the acceptance
by the House of the report of the Committee
of the Whole on the Appropriation Bill, He
wished to' have several items referred back to
the Committee, especially the item of $12,000
for Government Printing. He thought that
appropriation should be itemized, and especial
ly that the salaries of the Directors of the two
papers sliould be nxed Jy tne Assembly.
His Ex. C. de Varigny moved to indefinite
ly postpone reconsideration. There was no
discussion on the item yesterday he thought
all understood and nad made up tueir minds
on the item as it had been passed yesterday in
Mr. Lyons said that the item had not been
discussed. He did not wish to pay a tax for a
paper against the wishes of the people. The
Hawaiian paper had a distribution of 2,000
and a pay list of but 1,000, and tho foreign
paper a subscription list of but little over 200,
The people had a right to protest against tax.
ation. The point was not the loss or gain of
$I,U(10, but the rights of the people, lie in
sisted on a full account of the estimated ex
penses. His Ex. C. de Varigny said the question of
printing was not tbe most important one of
tnis session. Ine position of Mr. Lyons was
in support of a monopoly, and ho wished to
deprive the government of a press of their
own. If the salary of the Director was not
voted especially by tbe people. Jar. Lyons
feared that the rights of the people would bo
injured. He (Mr. V.) denied that the print
ing business was or more importance tban
any other industrial pursuit on the , islands.
He challenged any one to show that the free
dom of the press was curtailed in this country.
Mr. Lyons said that that question was set
tled tbe other day, be bad said nothing of tbe
freedom of the press, but the right- of the
irovernment to take the pnblic money and nse
it to disseminate ideas opposed to the popular
His Excellency proceeded, the question had
been fairly stated yesterday and the member
for Kobala had heard and had voted for the
item as in the bill.

Ordeb of toe Dat. Tho House went into
Committee of the Whole on the Appropriation
Mr. Kalakana called to the chair.
Items passed as follows :
New wharves and repairs, $21,000.
Dredging Honolulu harbor, $10,000.
New scow for pile driver, $1,500.
Steamer Pele working expenses, $11,000.

Completing landing at Honomalino, $750.
Landing at Kobolaicle, $750.
Boat landing at Hilo, $1,200. Amended and
passed at $1,500.
Safe for Governor's office at Hilo, $500.
Mr. Martin moved to reject tho item.
Mr. Hitchcock said that there was an iron
box at the Governor's office, but it was small
and weak, so that none of the foreigners
would deposit money there.
Mr. Koakanu said that a box to keep the
foreigners money was not wanted. The Gov
vernor had a strong box. He supported strik
ing out tbo item.
Mr. Kalu amended to insert $1,500 for safes
fur all the Governors.
Governor Eanoa thought that would be a
good idea, borne time ago his iron box was
carried off bodily and nothing had been heard
of it since.
Mr. Koakanu said that thieves could break
into a safe even if it was a fathom high and
broad. A wooden safe might'as well be
bought at once, for any safo must be watched,
and in an iron safe tbe money would all melt
in case of a ore.
Governor Dominis amended to $1,200 for
safes for the Governors of Hawaii, Maui and
Mr. Pilipo said that he had not yet heard
that the iron box for the Governor's offico for
Hawaii was in a bad condition.
Mr. Hitchcock asked where the member's
ears were the bad condition of the safo had
been fully explained. ,
-Amendment to $1,200 was passed.
Light House at Honolulu, $3,500. Expenses
of the same, $1,400 Passed
Lights at Labaina, $500.
Lights at Kawaihae, $500.
Streets lights at Honolulu, to be raised by
local taxation, $3,000.
Mr. Wilder amended to strike out. the words
"to be raised by local taxation."
His Ex. F. W. Hutchison said if that was
the case bo would advocate striking out the
entire item, for if the people of Honolulu
would not pay for their own lights they would
not deserve tbem.
Mr. Boyd objected be thought the lights
would be a pnblio benefit, and the merchants
would be willing to pay a fair sum towards
the cost of lights.
Mr. Koakanu said the proper way would be
to make a law to hare all house-holders put
up lights before their doors. The passage of
tbe item would not do any good to Linuc or
Koloa. He would support tbe item, however,
if a similar item should be passed for all the
towns" in the Kingdom.
Mr. Lyons stated distinctly, that the bill
was to dispose of the money in the treasury,
not to provide for any local taxation. If the
House wished to give $3,000 to Honolulu, they

Interest on national debt, $16,841 25.
. Mr. Phillips moved to amend to $25,841 25,
as that would be the necessary amount to pay
the interest upon tbe subsidy.
Mr. Hitchcock moved to postpone that item
and the one following of $50,000 for subsidy
until Friday, passed.
Subsidy to steamer Kilauea, $3,000.
Mr. Hitchcock moved to postpone until a
bill to encourage inter-island steam naviga
tion was considered, passed.

Mr. Pilipo amended to. $2,000.
The Governor of Oahu said that since the
supervision of all the police had been trans
ferred to the Attorney-General, the work of
his clerk had greatly increased, and he was
much opposed to decreasing his pay.
Mr. Koakanu began in a loud and stentorian
voice to declare that members had said that
this clerk did not do much work
Mr. Lyons told the member that they were
not deaf, and that he shonld lower bis voice.
Mr. Koakanu said that since that was if,
be called for the question.

Apprehension of criminals, $3,000.
Police of Oahu, $20,000.
Mr. Phillips said that as tbe special commit
tee had reported in favor of an -increase of the
number of police throughout the Islands.
He should move to amend to $36,960.
Mr. Keawehunahala added $720 to the last
sum, making a total of $37,680.
Mr. Pilipo did not fee the' necessity of any
increase ia the police serviee. and objected to
adding anytbbg to the appropriation for.them.
Mr. Keawahnnahala further amended to
add, " Police of Honolulu and other parts of
Mr. A. F. Judd said that a great deal of
peiiy stealing iook place on account or the
small force of police. One reason was that on
account of the large number of trees in Hon

streets were not lighted, thieves had a good
Mr. Lyons said that tbe watches here in
Honolulu consisted of eleven men each, and
what could they do in ease of a row when
there was 2,000 sailors in port? He favored
an increase of appropriation.
Mr. Koakanu said that 5 there bad been a
larger force of police some time ago, the Amer
ican Eagle would not have been stolen, and
which almost got this Government into trouble ;
and besides, a vast number of chickens were
stolen now if the police force was increased
all these evils would be abrogated.
Mr. Keawehunahala's amendments was
Police of Maui, $7,218.
His Ex. S.H.Phillips amended to $7,643 45,
Police of Hawaii, $7,311.
His Ex. S. H. Phillips amended to $9,816,
Police of Kauai, $3,145.
Mr. Koakanu amended to $3,500, passed.
Incidentals of service, $1,000, passed.

Fortt-Se?ehth Dat, TncnsDAr, June 11.
Assembly met at 10 A. x., IL H. M. Keku
anaoa in tbe chair.
After prayer by the Chaplain, the minutes
of the preceding day were read and approved.
Resolutions. His Ex. F. W. Hutchison
gave notice of several bills. To amend sec
tion 58 of the Civil Code, in relation to the
licenses of Beef Killers ; to regulate the salo
of poisons ; to regulate shooting of game in
Order of the dat. An Act to encourage
Ocean Steam Navigation on tho 3d reading.
His Ex. S. H. Phillips moved to read by the
Mr. Hitchcock amended to read entire.
Mr. Nahaku called the previous question.
Mr. Hitchcock's motion to read entire was
lost, and'the bill read by its title.
Mr. Phillips moved to pass 3d reading.
Mr. A. F. Judd amended to add a third sec
tion, as follows : " This Act shall become a
law from and after the ratification of tbe Reci
procity Treaty, now pending between this
conntry and America."
He said that the cost already of that pro
posed treaty was about $16,000. If it passed,
a new era of progress and riches would open
up to tbe country. Tbe treasury would be
filled with money, and wo could then well
afford to. pay a large sum'for aiding a line of
Ocean Steamers. If that third section was
added ho would support tbe passage of the bill.
Another reason of importance was, that at
present a Minister was lept at Washington,
and if the Government did not believe that the
treaty was going to pass, why did they not
withdraw him ?
Mr. Phillips was opposed to the new section.
It could not do good, and might do harm.
Tho House, well understood that if the Act
passed, it must go before the Privy Council
before a contract could be made. Tho fate of
tho treaty might be settled soon, but some
months might elapse before it obtained the
force of law. It was unwise to put such a
condition in the law. He hoped the bill would
not be loaded down with anysnch amendment.
Mr. Nahaku called the previous question.
Mr. C. II. Judd objected. Ho thought that
the new section should be well understood.
Mr. Nabaku's motion was carried.
Ayes and noes were called, and Mr. 'A. F.
Jndd's amendment was lost. Ayes, 15 ; noes,
Mr. Wilder amended to strike out the word
twelve and insert tho word ten, so that the
runnning time might be ten days instead of
twelve days. He showed that according to
the statistics of the estimated time for steam
lines, the time fixed between Honolulu and
San Francisco was 8 days. That was tbe
best time lor running.
The Chair ruled that further amendment
was out of order, as the previous oncstion had
been called, and the Houso had approved.
Mr. Wilder proceeded, that the Chair bad
formerly ruled that amendments could be
brougbt in at tne 3d reading, and now he was
cut off. He bad nothing more to say.
Mr. Lyons rose to a point of order, and said
that the amendment was to the previous Ques
Tho Chair ruled that further debate was ont
Mr. Hitchcock appealed to the House from
the decision of the Chair.
His Ex. S. II. Phillips said that as be un
derstood the question, tbe previous question
was his motion to pass 3d reading, and that
was prnrerly the unly thine before the Houso.
Any discussion was out of order. He thought
the House was ready for final action on the
bill. As for tbe amendment of Mr. Wilder, a
good dea,I could be said for and against it.
ine unair naa louowed its former rulings, that
amendments were in order, if they had been
offered and acted upon.
Jlr. u. 11. Judd said that several days aco.
when tho previous question had been called,
the Chair refused to call for the same, as he
said that tbe question bad not been discussed.
Abe Chair stated that upon that occasion he
bad not called the question, as he claimed his
right, as a member, to speak.
Mr. Judd proceeded : That was the point
exactly. They claimed their right to speak
before the question was called.
Mr. Koakanu said the members were not
deaf nor ignorant. They fully understood all
the amendments, and were ready to act finally.
It n-iu been evident an along that tne opposi
tion bad been very bitter, and bad tried everr
method to kill the bill. He thought the Chair
was right, and those who had annealed were
entirely wrong. He solemnly called upon all
tbe members to rote independently, and not
show fear, nor depart at all from the right.
Mr. A. F. Judd said that the question was
called on his amendment, wbicb bad been put.
Now tbe original bill was before tbe House for
discussion. He could not respect gentlemen
who came in and tried to cut off debate. He
bad intended to bring in that amendment.
liis Ex. c. de Varigny asked if the centle-
man had had that amendment ready on tbe 2d
reading. On being answered that he had, he
asked how it happened, as he had not been
certain that amendments could be introduced
on the 3d reading.
Mr. Judd proceeded, that be did know, but
tbe question had been put to the Cbair to make
assurance doubly sure.
Air. under stated that be had asked the
President privately if the BUI could be dis
cussed on third reading. The President bad
answered that full discussion could be had.
Question of appeal was put, the President
.first reading bis authority from Cushiqgs
Mr. Nahaku rose to discuss the point, but
was called to order, as he bad already spoken
twice. After considerable confnsion tbo mem
ber was allowed to speak again when he stated
his position, as follows : " That the President
was right; that he supported him, and that no
one had any right to dispute bis ruling." He
then proceeded to say that evrry one under
stood tbe bill before the house, and that he
should support its passage without any further
amendment. He had been thinking about it
for the last four weeks, and had at last mags
up his mind.
Vote uprn Mr. Hitchcock's motion was
taken and Iut.'
Ayes and uaj were called open the third
reading of the bill, which was passed by a
rote of 23 to 17.

matter. That no contract would be made

Mr. Judd said that he felt that the law
would not work well. He had considerable
knowledge cf the state of affairs, and thought

broke the law on the first offence, the illicit
liquor traffic would be stopped very soon.
Motion to indefinitely postpone was passed.
An Act regarding the qualifications of elect
ors was read the second time. With that act

A Dew invention, for blasting purposes,
as its name indicate?, has just been intro

explosive agent, its powers are said to be
almost equal to nitroglycerine, while its
safety is greater than either or both the
articles named A number of experiments
to prove its qualities have been made fit

the safety of transporting tho new powder.
To show its power, some further experi

in a horizontal cleft among the rocks. Into

The experiments demonstrated to the
entire conviction of everybody that the
new powder is very much safer than the
old, to carry and to handle. Everyone was
smoking cigars while handling the powder.
Miners who were present agree that it will
cheapen quartz mining one-half, and that
shafts will be sunk in one-third of the time.
