REI-ORT Or tOUMITTEES.
Mr. fiibson. Chairman of the Finance Commit
tee, eai-1 the rriutin: of the nirt Lad beel rap-
uiy rui.fl ijrwarJ, ai.i wuuld rrobaoly be
Ita ly io-tii jrrow or the next day.
The Flounce Committee LaJ had under their
coiieidcration the Ltdicfl IieneYolent Jjociety, and
a rctition IJuU Lad u.tn j relented by Lhinerc,
and they thought that a portion of the hospital
tecs migDt be retorted I ji ilc lieneyolcnt Society.
The committee would tugtet that $5,000 be
e: apart for that r urpoee and r laced at the di
poeal of the Minister of the Interior. With re
ference to the rraycr of Chinese, that one dollar
a Lead be imposed on Chinese tor hospital aid,
the committee are of opinion that tbirt would be
a measure of peculiar class legislation which the
AeecmWy ouzht not to entertain. Kegarding
the $21,000 collected as hospital fees, there is a
grievance aiuunj strangers having to pay this
tax, for whichthey receive no benefit. The com
mittee think that a quarter of this Bum might be
left at the disposal ot the Minister of the Interior,
thereby tthowin the eick people what they have
to pay the tax lur. lie (Mr. Oibson) would
therefore move that this .report be laid on the
table and taken up with the Appropriation CilL
This would give 10,000 for Hawaiian and
$5,000 fir strangers, 'lhat it, they purposed to
give back ore quarter of the whole of which the
strangers contributed. btrangera have to pay
when they are in the hoepital, whereas the 11a
waiians d not. fftrangcr.- who come here often
get poor, and th.; Denevolcnt Societies are occa
sionally short of fundi.
His fix. the Minister of the Interior said by
law this tax goes to the hospital and cannot be
changed by a resolution. He was of the opinion
it was only fair that poor foreigners should re
ceive some benefit from tho tax.
A motion was made to indefinitely postpone
the consideration of the resolution which was
loet. Mr. (Jihrton moved that it be returned to
the committee. Carried.
The Hen. ii. N. Cattle, Chairman of the Com
mittee on Lducaliou, read the following report :
The Committee on Education beg to report to
the Assembly that they have read and carefully
considered the report of the JloarJ of Education,
laid before your Honorable Iidy, and that they
are happy to see tfi.it the schools of the Kingdom
are in a flourishing condition, and to far as ap
pears the money appropriated for their support
by the last Legislative Assembly has been wisely
ami judiciously expanded. The private schools,
not aided by the Government, are contributing
largely to tn diseminaw ju ol education among
the people, and dt-serve every encouragement and
iuccecs. There has been placed before your
committee one memorial from 53 of the residents
of South Kona, Hawaii, to the Assembly praying
for the establishments of English Schools. Your
committee sympathise with the memorialists in
their dirc tor increased facilities for ia-truction
in the English language, and would recommend
that the Lioard of Education extend their system
in this dircctiun as far as the means at their com
mand will permit. They would also suggest that
parents wishing their children to bo benetittcd by
increased opportunities to study and learn the
English Ianuae should h.j encouraged to con
tribute themselves as iilxrally as their circum
stances will permit for this object as a source of
great benetl: t their children and the country.
The committee hf c that the Iijard will be sus
tained in carrying out all suggestions of improve
ment in their work, and that your honorable
body will encourage them in doing so by as liber
al a grant for IMucati.ftial purposes as the circum

ORDER OF THE DAY.
Second reading of the Appropriation Bill.
The bill was read by its title.
Tbe House went into Committee of tbe Wbole to
consider tbe Bill, Hon. W. T. Martin in the chair.
Mr. J. Mott Smith moved that the Bill be con
sidered item by item. Carried
His Majesty's Privy Purse and Royal State,
Her Majesty the Queen $0,000. Passed.
Her Royal Highness tho Heir Presumptive
His Majesty's Chamberlain and Secretary
His Majesty's Household expenses $16,000.
Mr. S. W. Kaai moved to strike this item out.
His Ex. Minister of Interior hoped tbe item
would pass, and bencc it bad been included in
the bill. He gave several reasons why they ask
ed for this sum. He pointed out that the com
pletion of the Palace would bring additional ex
penses. crcat now, and they will be more o io the future i
Ihe facilities to travel about the world are so
than tbe past and present, that many royal ier
sonaee would no doubt patts this way, and they
would be entertained by Ilia Majesty at no small
expense. There is a Prince on Lis travels round
the world now. lie is expected here, and he must
be entertained when lie comes. At recent there
is no fund for entertaining royal guests, and it
waa entirely for the entertainment of t-ucb per
onages that such a sum was placed in the bill.
We do not want to say too much, and don't want
to publish it to tbe world, but when parties virit
His Majesty we expect thciu to be entertained.
General Grant was expected, and had he come it
would have cot a lot ot money, and there was no
appropriation ftoin which we could take a inle
dollar, and as it is for this purpose only that tho
sum is a-Ked, be trusted the Ae-sembly would Y'.-te
An amendment was made that it read 3,000
Mr. Pilipo thought the item ehould be struck
out, and tpuke at length on the subject.
His Ex. the Minister of Foreign Kelations eup-
irted the item, and in an eloquent speech eu-
sed the action of His Majesty in regard to the
Keciorocity Treaty. Ho also deprecated the ac-
tioo of the Gazette io ltd unfair criticism of this
Assembly and tbe yariou9 appropriations which
were insisted io tbe Bill, particularly the one
that was now before tbe House.
Mr. Rhodes eaid that tbrougb the instrument
ality of Hi Majesty we got the treaty. He did go
to the United S'.a'tes in the depth of the winter, j ferenily from yesterday, it ehould not be imputed
and at great inconvenience. He received great ! to wrong motives. Everyone has a right to
credit fur what he had done, and had been well j change his vote if he wishes. When be voted he
lodged and tal en care of for his services, and it j did not wish it to be thought that he was inSu
was only right that this country should support i enced, and such hints ought not to be thrown
him in his splendor. There is a dwelling, such ! out.
as no Sovereig-i had before 50,000 had been
i voted for the past two years, and 50.000 was
asked for the next two years to complete it. Was
ever a Sovereign lodged like him, and HawaiiaDs
are proud of turn. Rut we are not to worship.
Not is $45,000 voted for him, but there are
crown lands set apart for him which will make
about $40,000 more. Former Sovereigns bad not
that much. Kamehameba IV had but $32,000,
and on the motion of the Hon. C. II. Judd it was
raised to $45,000. The Ministry of that day
looked with surprise when the motion was made
to raise the salary from $32,000 to $45,000.
I The crown lands at that time did not turn in
j what they do now. We must remember that
, though we have to keep him, there are others to
J provide for. The Ministry provide nothing for
I the 500 lepers that are moving in our midst. He
! wished we CJuld aflord $100,0(10, but the treas
I ury will not allow it. We must remember that
men were not made for Chiefs, but Chiefs for
men. The people must not be drawn on too ex
travagantly. The circumstances of His Majesty's
subjects is nut the same us in the reign of Ka
mehameba IV. They are not so numerous, and
now it is the foreigners we inux t have regard for
as well as the natives. If $10,000 were asked to
be added to the $85,000 for lepers, I would say
yes, and we should have the support of the entire
Community, foreigners as well as natives. He
was informed that there are lepers going about at
large on the Island of Maui, and here we are
asked for $10,000 for nothing. He considered
that in opposing this item, he was doing His
Majesty a kindness. If any expense 6hould be
incurred by persons coming here, appropriations
will always be forthcoming next Legislature.
The Assembly will take care that His Majesty
will not lose by his generosity. He therefore
supported tbe motion to indefinitely postpone.
The ayes and noes were called for, to indefinite
ly postpone, which was carried.

Mr. Gibson remarked that this report had been '
in the bands of the printer only -U days, and that ;
j there was a small appendix that would follow in i

j ORDER OF THE DAY. ;
Further consideration of the appropriation bill
j in committee of the whole.
I His Ex. Minister of Finance moved the qucs
; tion of $16,000 for His Majesty's household ex- j
j penses be reconsidered. j
j Mr. Bishop pointed out that His Excellency
i did not vote with the majority.
Mr. Keau then moved the reconsideration.
Mr. Pilipo asked what the receipts of Crown j
', Lands were.
Governor Bush said, that lie thought the Hon- !
orable member from North Kona was intrenching :
; upon the prerogative of the King. He deemed ;
' that the information asked for could only be ob- j
; tained by consent of His Majesty. i
' His Ex. Minister of Finance 6poko at leDgth. '
i He explained the absolute power of His Majesty,
j and quoting from Article 34 of the Constitution, j
) said the King might sell the country if be so
! Mr. Rhodes said the words used by the Miuis-
j ter of Finance ehould not pass without a protest
i from at least one in this Assembly. He argued
that His Majesty had but a life interest in tbe
country, and it was not his to sell. When tbe
King came to the throne he named bis successor,
and that successor has a right to the throne. His
Majesty cannot sell bis people. He quoted from
Article 38 of the Constitution wherein it is stated
that the national ensign shall not be changed.
What objection could there be to the Crown
Commissioners telling this Assembly what was
tbe income from the t.'iown Lands. He wished
the income was ten times, as much as it is.
Those who do not vote in favor of this $16,000
have as much regard for His Majesty as those
Mr. Bishop thought that every member of tbe
Assembly would be glad to vote a sufficient sum
for His Majesty, but lie also thought it perfectly
justifiable to ascertain the income from the Crown
' Lands. This was a provision made by the Leg
' islative Assembly for the dignity of the Crowu.
i He stated tint one year the first item in tbe Ap
j propriation Uill was deferred until this was an-
swered. This year there was no hesitation about
! voting the first item, but when this new item
! came up, various opinions have been expressed
I which would tend to create a bad feeling. No
' Legislature had failed to treat tbe Sovereign and
i Koval Family with liberality, and be hoped tbe
tiole would never come when they would cease to
1 do so. Ho wish the item bad been put in some
'. other form. As it stands, he would feel com
clled to vote against it.
Mr. Castle e.iid that he agreed with the form
er speaker, and added that this vote is no test of
! the loyalty of the people. Honest men differ in
i their opinions very often. High taxation destroy
! the -eople, and as every member desires tbe pros
! perity of the nation, to tax should be imposed
j except that which would tend to benefit the
country. He remembered when Kamehameba
HI received but $3,000 or $12,000, but that
would be unfitting for the present time. He con
sidered that those who voted againt the item
asked for bad the prosperity of the country at
heart, and though one voted differently from the
other he should not bo considered a traitor to bis
Mr. Abolo eaid, that if any member votes dif-

The hearts of those who have wasted the mid
night oil in vain attempts to solve the Gem Pu
xle, will le made glad by leading and pondering
over the following lucid explanation regarding
the mysterious trio.
Ihe numbers 13 14 lo are cajable of six dif
ferent combinations, as follows:
13 14 15
These combinations fall
two groups, as
Group A 13 14 15 Group li 13 15 14
14 15 13 14 13 15
15 13 14 15 14 13
The combinations in group A are capable of
solution, or as one of them is the solution, the
last two are soluble. The combinations in
r 1 ft- m
group li are incapaoie oi &jiuuon. Anyone m
group A can be changed to any other one in the
eatne group. Any tne in the group B can be
changed to aay other one in the same group.
But no combination in group A can be changed
to any combination in group B. and rice rersa.
Since this is so, there are but two soluble com
binations out of the five irregular combina
tions, viz: 14 15 13, and 15 13 14. The follow
ing rule bas been deduced from these facts ;
subtract tbe last number of the combination
from the first number, and if the difference be
one, the combination is soluble; if the difference
be two, ii is insoluble; if there can be no sub
traction, it is insoiuDie. ine following lact is
also worth noting: place the three figures in any
order upon a table, and note the combination,
then constantly transfer the first figure to the
third place, and if in such transpositions the
numbers do not fall into regular order, the com
bination with which you started is insoluble.
The following is the key to the soluble combina
Combination 14 15 13 Move 12 down; 11 to
the right; 13 up; 15 14 to the right; 9 down; 10
13 11 to the left; 12 up; 15 14 to the right; 13
down. 10 to the right; 9 up, and 13 14 15 to
Combination 15 13 14 This must be reduced
to the above combination ns follows: Move 12
down; 11 to the right; 14 up; 13 15 to the right;
9 down; 10 14 11 to the left; 12 up; 13 15 to
the right; 14 down; 10 to the right; 9 up; 14 15
13 to the left; and then proceed as in the com
bination 14 15 14.
The same results may be obtained by proper
movements from the right hand side of the box.
