' Mr. Khodefl said be was in favor of tbe reaola-

J very graceful net. They were not asked to ad

' aona qualified to take care of the tick may be re-

Upon leave being granted, the Bill waa read a
second time by its title, and referred to the fol
lowing S lect Committee : Messrs. Hanana,
Baker, ALoIo, Minister of Finance, and Kabanu.
, Mr. llanuna moved the re-consideration of tbe
resolution to vinit Molokoi.
i Mr. Gibson said that be felt that a visit of the
members of thij llouee is due to the poor lepers
Af the visit male during last session, be felt that
it was a comfort that the lepers look forward to.
Tbey certainly ak reasonable things, that can be
considered and acted upon judiciously, lie felt
keenly for the lepers, and strongly eopported
the motion l visit jlololtai.
Mr. Smith said be thought that this House
, should return to a little good sense, it waa a
hapry thing to see so many intelligent Govern
ments tryiDir to make this Oovernment intelligent
This was a liberal government, and willing to
. spend people money. Look at our appropria-
tion bill, was not it enough to satisfy everybody?
; I not $3-5,000 enough for tbe lepers? Will any
i gentleman say we have not done enough for
1 them? And now, it is asked that a committee of
,; thirteen go and visit them. He appreciated tbe
gentleman who would harrow their reelings with
; this sad, sore, and tender subject. If we cannot
1 add to their personal comlort, there waa no use
in going there. No public benefit had been de
t rived from a visit to Kalawaao. He compared it
as about equivalent to a committee going to tbe
1 Insane Asylum and making enquiries from the
j inmates as to tbeir welfare and condition. Our
miration depends upon keeping tbem there
.There are men abroad who are watching, and
.who are wondering if Hawaiians are capable of
managing their own auairs, and be added tbat if
tbey are not careful about their auairs be would
f be fearful for tbem

ORDER Or TUE DAT.
Tbe consideration of the Appropriation Bill.
The following items passed :
Pay of Ftmater 5,000
Pay of Mali Canrteri , . 15,000
Leprr Settlement 85,000
The next item was for medical superinteDdant,
Leper Settlement set down at $8,000.
Mr. Kaulukou moved that the item be struck
out. The gentlemen bid not cured a single lep
er, and he was generally of opinion tbat his eer
vices could be dispensed with.
The Minister ot the Interior said, if he could
cure one leper, he couli cure all. No physician
bad ever cured leprosy. Tbis money was not
asked for with the expectation of curing tbe dis
ease; their sufferings are alleviated as far as tbey
can be, and that is tbe duty of the pheician.
Before they had a doctor the lepers used to die
in any way whatever. It rests with you Haw
aiians whether you have a doctor or not. You
will never find a man more fitted for the post
than the present incumbent. They are subject
to many more ills besides lepjuy. Last Fall
there- were many cases of fever.
Mr. Kalua agreed that the lepers were well
cared for before this doctor went there. He had
been told that this doctor is preparing a book,
out of which he expected to realise a profit, con
sequently he is being paid by the Government for
bis own private work.
The Minister of the Interior said, you cannot
get a physician to go and stop at Kalawao for 12
The indefinite postponement of the item was
put to the vote and were taken as follows :

The Minister of the Interior then moved to in
sert an item of $1,000 for services rendered.
The next item was for " traveling physicians. "
Mr. Rhodes How many are there?
The Miniftcr ol the Interior Four.
Mr. Rhode naid. there is a bill before the
House to provide medical aid for sick and indig
ent persons, and al that a resolution had been
passed to give $20,000 for building branch hos
pitals, but they were inlotmed that for tbis sum
tbe project could not be carried out.
Tbe Minister of the Interior said $20,000 was
cot sufficient for five boepitals.
Mr. Rhodes said, be believed it would go a
very short way, at the same time there bad been
great complaints of bow thee traveling physi
cians had neglected their duty. We are in
formed that they draw their pay, and that is all.
The state of things on the other islands is being
revolutionized. The same appropriation slightly
added to would pay lor resident physicians. He
would move that it read traveling and resident
physicians and be increased to $20,000.
Mr. Gibson said be was in favor of increasing
tbe salary of these physicians. He had seen the
advantages of medical science. Good men will
not stop in a district where there is not a moder
ate foreign population.
An amendment was made to increase tbe item
to $26,000, and omit tbe word traveling."
Tbe next items passed were :
General Etpensea ot Board of Health 120,000
Repairs and Care ot Quarantine Building. . . ." 2,BOO
Mr. Kalua tncved that an item for Branch
Hospitals be here inserted at $80,000.

tain new sections to be numbered respectively
sections 31, 32, and 33, on its eecond reading,
together with the report of tbe same.
Tbe first 6ection as passed reads as follows :
Section 1. Tbat Section 1 of Chapter 41 of
tbe Penal Code be. and the same is hereby
amended by striking out in tbe second and third

conviction of such offense before any Police or
District Justice. Provided, that this Section
shall not be so construed as to interfere with tbe
ordinary supplies of the above named liquors on
tbe tables of the hotels and victualling houses."
The President informed the House tbat the re
port bad not yet been adopted.
Mr. Rhodes said there were so many inconsis
tencies in the bill that it could never be made to
work. Who can tell the strength of the liquor
tbey are taking. It is well known tbat tbe
Islands are flooded with cheap gin, and is it to
be supposed that the increased license will stop
tbe traffic. Nobody will take out a license, but
people who are now selling surreptitiously will
increase the practice.
The following Sections were read and approved:
Section 9. Tbat Section 17 of Chapter 41 of
tbe Penal Code be, and the same is hereby
amended by striking out the words 44 one hun
dred " in the tbird line, and inserting in place

will read as follows :
44 Section 20. Before granting such license to
any person to vend wine, ale and other spirituous
liquors, as prescribed in Sections 18 and 19 of
tbis Chapter, tbe applicant shall pay to the
Minister of the Interior, for the use of the Royal
Exchequer, tbo sum of one thousand dollars, and
give a bond to the Minister of the Interior in
tbe penalty of one thousand dollars, with at least
one security to be approved by said Minister."

in the proceeding Section, the applicant shall
pay to the Minister of the Interior for the use of
the Royal Exchequer the sum of three thousand
dollars, with at least one sufficient security to be
approved by said Minister."
Mr. Rhodes here said if we are going to make
laws let us do ho with sense, but do not let us
bave a pack of nonsense. There is a good bill
before the House drafted by the Attorney Gener
al. He would therefore move the indefinite post
ponement of the further consideration of this bill.

In referring to tbe road tax, the Attorney Gen
eral said, by tbe present law every person has to
pay $2 for road tax. It cannot but be said tbat
roads improve tbe value of property. There are
large numbers of persons who own large tracts of
land, and do not pay one cent for road tax. He
explained tbat be bad a small piece of land bord
ered by two roads and be only paid $2 road tax,
as also did the men who worked for him. By

not expect to have the roads kept in order for

Chicago, June 18. A Washington dispatch
says: ucnerai uarneld called at tbe White

after which he aDd Secretary Schurz took a long
ride together. He is preparing everything for his

go by way of Ilarrisburg and Pittsburg.
Ex-Senator Conover of Florida, the Republi
can nominee for Governor, leaves for home to
morrow. He is confident tbat the Republicans
will carry the State and he will be elected. There
is a disinclination manifested on the part of tbe
Congressional Committee to lend any assistance
on the ground tbat the South will be solidly De
mocratic anyway. Southern KepubJicans depre- j
cate this policy, and say that with proper aid, i
even if no State can be carried, important gains :
can be made in Congress, it tbey bave help. ,

lightning shall strike in Cincinati, as it did at
Chicago, he will receive full benefit of the shock.
Tbe editor of a Democratic newspaper at Oswego,
Si. x.t is going to Cincinnati to work upon a
boom for George B. McClellan, of New Jersey.
Delegates, wire-pullers and lookers on are arriv
ing at Cincinnati in large numbers. It was tbe
general impression last evening tbat TiMen was
practically out of tbe race, ibree carloads of
New England delegates to tbe Convention left
Boston yesterday, nearly all opposed to Tilden,
and those whose preference is at all pronounced
favor Bayard. John Kelly, just before his de
parture from JNew lork, said he did not believe
Tilden could be nominated. Tammany had no
especial favorite, but it would put up a tbird tic
ket in the event of lilden e nomination. Wash
ington Democrats declare tbat particular atten
tion should be paid to the second place on the
ticket. Colonel Fenn of Iowa passed through
Chicago yesterday bound for the Convention.
tie thinks the delegation from his State will give
Tilden a complimentary vote, but that Seymour
is their favorite. Ibe Chicago Seymour Club
will go to Cincinnati with white bats, blue
badges and gold fringe.
Kaleigu. June loth. lhe Democratic State
Convention, yesterday, was the largest ever held
in North Carolina. Two thousand delegates
were in attendance, and no hall was large enough
to hold them, so they met in the Capitol Square,
in the open air. Tho Convention was called to
order by S. A. Ashe, Chairman of the State
Committee. Jno. Graham was made permanent
President. Governor Jarvis was renominated
over Fowle and Scales by a small majority on the
first ballot, and the nomination was made unani
mous. On the first ballot for Lieut. Governor,
Julian S. Carr was thought to be nominated over
James L. Robinson, the present incumbent,
Thos. Holl, and Kerr Craig, but there being con
fusion, another call was made and Robinson
was nominated, and the nomination was made
All the other incumbents were tenominated
without serious opposition, except tbat for Audi
tor, General W. T. Roberts being nominated.
The delegates to Cincinnati, tbough not instruct
ed, are favorable to Seymour, and their second
choice is Bayard. The Convention took no
action about the two-thirds1 rule at Cincinnati.
There are no Tilden men among the entire dele
gation. The Electors at-Large are James M.
Leach add Fabius II. Busbee. ;
In the matter of the special proceedings to re- i
move I, S. Kallocb, Mayor, from office, tbe Su
preme Court have set the- cause for bearing
Monday, July 26th, on appeal by the prosecu
tion. Boston, June 19. Senator Hoar was given a
reception to-night, and said the happiest moment
of bis life was when tbe Chicago Convention
nominated Garfield, whose character and states
manship he highly eulogized.
New York. June 19. A Cincinnati special to
the Evening Post says : The man here who ap
pears to come the nearest to having an effectual
following is Field. Tbe Tilden men are expect
ing tbat tbe opposition to them will, in the end,
concentrate on the Pacific Coast candidate. A
Commercial special also eays : The biggest boom
bere is for Field.
London, June 19. The second reading of the
Irish Land Bill in the House or Commons is fixed
for the 22d inst. The bill provides that until tbe
31st of December, 1881, eiectnient fnr r-r
ment of r- ; veriain scheduled districts wbere
distress is prevalent shall be deemed a disturb
ance of the tenant landlord within the meaning
of tbe Landlord and Tenant Act of 1870, and
the tenant shall be entitled to compensation, in
the discretion of the Judge of the County Court,
if non-payment of the rent is caused by the pre
vailing distress and the tenant is willing to con
tinue in tbe occupation upon reasonable terms,
as to rent, arrears of rent, and otherwise, and
such terms are unreasonably refused by the land
lord. The bill meets determined opposition from
the Conservatives, who denounce it as confisca
tion. The newspapers oppone the bill unquali
fiedly. The Home Rulers bave resolved to oppose
its progress until the Government produces a bill,
founded on the principle of the new cases to be
ropoeed by the Chief Secretary for Ireland, en
arging the powers of local Boards for awarding
compensation to the occupiers of the land.
In tbe House of Commons last night Lord
Elcho gave notice tbat be would introduce two
bills, intended as a burlesque on the Irish Relief
bill; one empowering tbe Prime Minister or
Home Secretary to fix and remit rents, prescribe
tbe mode of cultivation according to the wishes
of tbe tenant, and regulate the price of agricul
tural implements and artificial manures; and the
otber empowering tbe Minister or Home Secre
tary to fix tbe rate ef interest on borrowed money
and give borrows a fixity of loans; all private
contracts on tbese matters to be null and void.
Tbe Speaker declined to allow notice of tbe bills
to go upon the record, but they illustrate tbe
view that Irish property-holders take of the Irish
Constantinople, June 19. On the arrival in
tho Dardanelles of an Italian vessel, having on
board the harem of tbe ex-Khedive, lsmael Paeha,
tbe Sultan authorized the women to go to Chios
or Lemncs, but tbe captain of the ship persisted
that he had been chartered to Constantinople.
Tbe ship was allowed to come in, out of respect
to tbe Italian flag, but tbe women will be trans
shipped without landing, and convey to Chios.
Vienna, June 19. The Political Correspon
denz says : The Roumanian agent at Sophia has
been instructed to demand from the Bulgarian
Government a categorical explanation relative to
the withdrawal of the bill authorizing the natur
alization of Bulgarians or Roumanians in Rou
manian territory. In case tbe explanation is un
satisfactory, Roumania threatens a rupture of
Berlin, June 19. The delegates to the Tech- ;
nical Commission met this morning, and Plenipo
tentiaries at three this afternoon. The sitting of
the latter body lasted an hour and three quarters.
The exchange of views was continued, and it is
consequently believed that the conference will
terminate its labors in eight or ten days.
London, June 19. The passage in the House
of Commons of the local option resolution, giving
the inhabitants of any district the right of deter
mining whether or not the licenses to public
houses shall be renewed, will oblige the Govern
ment to introduce a bill regulating liquor licenses.
London, June 19. The cotton manufactures
of North and Northwest Lancashire have notified
tho spinners and card-room hands that the state
of trade does not warrant the five per cent, in
wages promised conditionally for the first week
in July. Similar notice has been given by the
Cotton Masters' Association. The workmen de
mand the advance, or say they will strike.
London, June 19. In the Court of Appeals
yesterday, on application for further delay in the
bearing of the appeal in the case of the Tich
borne claimant, in consequence of the continued
illness of Judah P. Benjamin, claimant's counsel,
Justice Sir George Bramwell said the case must
be argued on Thursday next, or stand over until
London, June 19. A meeting of the Protes
tant Reformation Society was held last night at
Exeter Hall to protest against tbe appointment of
the Marquis of Ripon as Viceroy of India. There
was much disturbance. Resolutions or protest
against the appointment, and a memorial to the
Queen and Parliament were only carried after the
interrupters had been forcibly ejected.
London, June 19. The circular note of Aus
tria addressed to the Powers, proposes to settle
tbe Roumania-Bulgaria boundary dispute by
modifying the report of the Technical Commis
sion bo that while Arab Tabia shall belong to
Roumania, the southeastern part of Silistria,
which will dominate the proposed Danube bridge,
shall remain Bulgarian.
London, June 19. A telegram has been re
