His Ex. (X de Varigny moved to indefinitely
postpone. If the bill passed it would exempt
those most able to pay, from the tax. -
His Li. H. Jl. i'billips seconded the views
of his colleague. The law struck a blow at
the whole system of instruction. The school
tax was not to keep this man's child at school
or that man's child, bat to annnort schools all
over the land. If a certain class of persons
were exempted, the tax would cease to be uni-
form. It would be a bad thing to show before
courts the iustice of the svstem. All who
were able to tend their children to better
schools would be exempted, then who would
tie leit to support tne public scnools. ibe re-
suit would be to enable one class of citizens to
educate their children, and compel the other
class too. In Massachusetts insidious at
tempts wero frequently made to divert those
funds from their legitimate purpose to other
places, nut now It was a constitutional arti-
cal, keeping the monies in their nroDer ulacej
Passage of the law would be equal to giving
sojnuch money to a certain class. If the sys
tem was carrieu out, mere would qe denomina
tional schools, taking away the publio monies.
Mr. Lyons said that there was cause for
tbe introduction of the bill. In a great many
districts the government schools were kept
oniy a small pan oi me year, xiut mere was
reason to suppose that the system of govern
ment schools would be improved, for that rea
son he should vote against the bill.
Jlr. Wilder objected to. the bill, be should
vote against Its passage. As a member of the
Special Committee to revise tbe taxation sys
tem, ce promised to do wnat be could to make
tbe school tax a property tax.

Air. U.U.J udd moved to postpone the re
port of the Committee and order the bill to
engrossment.
Mr. Knudsen said that the Committee on
Commerce had taken pains to get at the truth
in the matter. According to what they had
learned the Pilots at present earned largo sums
yearly. AH the merchants of Honolulu whom
tbey bad asked in regard to tbe matter had
spoken adversely to raising the pUot fees. He
moved to innefinitely postpone.
Air. U. 11. a add said he bad spoken to sev
eral captains upon the subject, and they spoke
favorably or tne matter. He bad brought in
the bUl for the reason that he thought the
matter was at present unfairly arranged. Ves
sels of z,uou tons Should pay for more pUotaze
than a smaller craft. It was said that the
Pilots cleared $2,008 or more a Tear. It was
not so, if tbe statistics he had seen were true.
Although the Custom House statistics showed
that each of tbe Honolulu Pilots received $2r
670 06, yet ont of that they1 had to par boat
hire", etc, which would reduce their pay con
siderably. Mr. Knudsen said the boat hire amounted
to about $1460, which would stul leave each
puot over $2,066 a year. Sailors, and sea-
going people generally, when they heard that

A bill to amend Section 12S0 and 1231 of
the Civil Code on costs, was in order.
Mr. A. F. Jndd moved to read by the title.
Carried.
His Ex. S. H. Phillips moved to indefinitely
postpone. He said that the bill contemplated
a radical change in the matter of costs, rais
ing tome and cutting off a good deal from
others. He had observed that the principal
reduction had not been of the costs that would
go to the lawyers, but those gomgtofhe treas
ury. Most of the clerks of government were
paid out of these costs. In law suits, the
losing party had to pay the costs. That was
fair, if a party chose to put off paying their
proper debts, and went to law it was fair that
they should have to pay for it. He objected
to making the costs so small that people
would go to law for fun. or out of suite. He
thought it hardly worth while to legislate on
the matter, nnd was in favor of indefinitely
I postponing the matter.
Mr. A. F. Judd said that the Attorney-Gen-
eral could hardly judge in the matter, as he
had not been in the country as long as some
of the other lawyers, and could not yet have
seen the bearing of those matters on the coun
try. The bill had been introduced to take off
some of the burdens from the poorer people.
Motion to indefinitely postpone was lost, end

On motion of Mr. Wilder, the rules were
suspended and his resolution to aaead the
Constitution, by dividing the Assembly iato
two chambers, was taken np. Mr. WiWer
moved to engross the resolution.
Mr. A. F. Judd thought the question of
great importance. The experience of liberty
was, that liberty was fostered by their proctieo
of having two Houses. In the early days of
the United States, some statesmen advised but
one House, as otherwise, the form .of govern
ment would be too much like England. Bnt
the graver, truer Impulies of the peopte de
cided for two Houses, and .never had a voice
been raised against the system. He was not
afraid to sit with the Nobles and Ministers,
but the voioe of each chamber; would be
fewer if tbey wero seperate, but if the Houses
were to sit apart he should favor having the
Ministers sit with the Representatives, but
have no vote ; they were not Nobles nor Rep
resentatives. He had no doubt, that in this
session bUIs had passed that would not have
passed if the Nobles and Representatives sat
separately. With all respect for the Nobles
and Ministers, he sinceiely hoped that the.ea
soing Assembly would change this tectba of
the Constitution,
Mr. Nahaku said that, he did not think that
this Government should be guided by tbe
governments of other countries. We could
manage our own affairs without troubling our
selves about others. Tbe Representatives were
not keot from sneak in tr. Ifis mouth bail nnt
been shut as all.could tee now. The resolu
tion was unconstitutional, and he should vote
against its passage.
Mr. Koakanu said that the resolution was a
very hard one. He explained his views at
great length, and eoncluded by saying that he
should vote for indefinitely postponing the
resolution.
Mr. Uopu asked the member for Koolau.
poke to explain his reason for bringing in the
resolution. ' .
Mr. Wilder said he had given his reasons
the other day, which he reiterated.
Mr. Uopu supported Indefinite, postpone
ment. Tbe system proposed by Mr. Wilder
had been tried when the Gorernment started
as a constitutional one, and it had faUed.
Mr. Wilder amended the resolution so that
, the Houses should not sit separately but vote
separately.
Mr. Hitchcock said the matter was not t
present to be made a law, but merely to get at
the opinion of tbe House. He should vote
for two separate Houses not to tote sepa
rately only. He was here in 1862 j ho woald
grant that business had been more expeditious
this session, but the old method was not a
failure. It might be more inconvenient, bet
the greater political liberty, involved in hay.
ing two Chambers, was what he advocated.
There were three estates in the Kingdom?' A
mingling of them was against the best interests
of a free constitutional form of Gorernment.
The estates Should be separate, act freely, and
vote without constraint.
Mr. Lyons said that it had been urged that
sitting together hastened business. That argu
ment would carry us bock to despotio limes,
when the entire power was vested in one per
son. Perhaps Hawaiians had a reason for
wishing to keep the two houses together; bet
many foreigners had settled in the coaetry,
if was necessary to get their aid, to have them
take the oath of allegiance' and help sustain,
tho dignity and honor of the Government.
He urged his Hawaiian friends to well consider
this queltion. The tendency among them at
present was to center tbo entire power In the
King. Let them be careful, let' them keep
their liberties pure and untrammelled. If the
matter was allowed to go by, and the power aJi
glided gradually Into the hands of tbe King
and tbe upper classes, the life of the nation
would be surely shortened, and they would
soon fade away from the earth.
Mr. Uopu said that he had at last arrived' At
the true idea of the resolution. There were
foreigners who did not like the present Consti
tution. It was time to look and tee if there
were foreigners in the country who wish to
overturn tbe Constitution and return to the
old Constitution. When' tbtse foreigners
showed good reason for amending the Consti
tution, he would rote for the resolution. As
for himself be did not see but that the present
system of legislation was successful and a
good one. Ue should vote for indefinite post
ponement. -Mr. Milder said that if a very shsnls and
easy form of Government was desired, the
King could tell these men to assemble and in
a week they could make all the laws. There
wss not a government on (he face of the earth
that was not a despotism where the Beoresen-
tatives' did not hold tbe control of the publio
funds. He was surprised that the member
for Uana spoke so of foreigners. He defied
the member to point out one foreign member
who had voted against the best interests of
the nation. An amendment was not overturn.

idea in this matter was for the good of the
people, and them only. Wherever the system
of uniting the two estates had been tried. It
had been discarded.
Mr. Bishop favored the adostlon of tha
resolution. The question of two separate'
Uouses had been a bone of contention ever
ince tbe new Constitution-had been taatad.
We all had the right and privilege to express
our opinion on the form of GoTernmeat. The
