,. THE LEGISLATURE.
The House was In a fever for
business after its Sunday rest, mo
tions for all day sessions and night
sessions being strewn "thick as
leaves in Vnllambrosa" at the open
ing on Monday. Yesterday, how
ever, the statesmen were nicely con
valescent and pursued their momen
tous deliberations at the cool pace
becoming the moulders of the
country's future. They took one
hour of the two devoted to the Ap
propriation Bill to vote $25 a month
to six policemen on Molokai. "When
it is learned that this appropriation
was for the benefit of pels of the
great Nakalcka, the public will ap
plaud the slow if not stately step
that reached it. That noble senator
surpassed himself in the number of
speeches he was able to make upon
one simple subject. In fact, all the
other speakers only acted an punctu
ation marks to the thoughts that
breezed and the words that buzzed
from the Cicero of Molokai. And
he was always ready, at the close of
the grateful interruptions of ordi
nary members, to resume the thread
of his discourse. While each of his
alternates was speaking, he assumed
an oblique altitude, half sitting and
half standing, with his glittering eye
rivctted on the chair, so as to be
mivc of having the lloor before the
other could reach his seat. Then
with a smile as vast and void as the
l.'ali he affectionately pleaded the
cause of his Molokai proteges till
the air of the chamber became
"-tilling with emotion. Some one
who knows his soft side should beg
the great Nakalcka to abstain ftoin
addressing the House when there i
a lull in the trade winds.
THE SITUATION AND THE NEWSPAPERS
There are cut lain wise men in the
' community, who wag their heads
and say, "if it hadn't been for thnt
' Humxtin and the other papers con
stantly talking about' the Kiug, and
placing the responsibility on him,
Gibson would bnvo'Lbccu ousted ere
this ; but the King is not going to be
4 bulldozed by newspaper talk," etc.,
cto. Those who give vent to this
kind of talk are generally, although
not in nil cases, friends of the
King; but if they did but know it,
0 they arc ascribing to him u very low
order of principles. They admit
that things arc being carried on in a
', bad way. They admit that Mr.
Gibson is capable of doing anything
-that the huninn mind can conceive
of, for the purpose of ictaining his
olllcc, and that lie is utterly unfit to
hold any olllce of trust; and they
t admit thnt the King knows it, and
yet they say that he refuses to
remedy the evil, because a news
paper has had the audacity to state
in public the fads which t ho King
himself, and everyone at all ac
quainted with tho matter, knows to
be ttue. This is ascribing to the
' King about as much sejisc as the
jsnmll boy exhibited when ho had the
sulks and refused to cat his break
, fast, simply because his mother told
- him it was breakfast time.
NAKALEKA TO THE FRONT AGAIN
Mr. Nakalcka's excttions on behalf
of the pence of Molokai yesterday,
have not left him exhausted. Ho
turned up to-day, blooming an ever,
standing bravely in the beach when
he saw the Penal Code iu danger of
a compound fracture from the im
pact of a section in the Cruelty to
Animals Act, giving power of arrest
to officers of the S. P. C. A. The
Assembly had just settled down to
work until one o'clock, whenumect
ing of the Privy Council was to take
place ; but, like the British Parlia
ment, when Sheridan stined it up
with his tremendous speech on the
impeachment of Warren Hastings,
the members were so dazed with the
profound eloquence of Nakaleka on
the prevention of cruelty to the
Penal Code that, immediately upon
his resuming his seat, they voted,
at 12.30, to adjourn till 2.30.
THE RULINC PASSION STRONC IN
The Mounted Police gave its last,
spasmodic, dying kick yesterday
afternbon. Since the disbandment
of the main body, two men have been
retained in chatge of the horses and
premises. These men feel that their
days are but short, and that the
opportunities for olllcial jamborees
arc momentarily growing less. Like
the busy bee who improves each
shining hour, one of them having
exercised the right of a free man
and taken on board all the cheap
gin he would hold, decided
yesterday afternoon that his wife
needed phyical exercise, and ac
cordingly proceeded to instruct
her in the mysteries of Marquis of
Queensbury rules. Mrs. Mounted
Police was not an apt scholar, and
was inclined to back her ignorance
with physical arguments, whereupon
Mr. Mounted Police determined that
the only way he could make her
comprehend the subject was to shoot
it into her, and went into the house
for a rifle. When he went into the
house Mrs. M. P. remembered that
she had an appointment with one of
the neighbors, and started off across
lots without waiting to tell Mr. M.
P., or going in to see if dinmcr was
ready. When Mr. M. P. came out,
he found the wife of his bosom had
heartlessly deserted him, and that
his hearth was barren and desolate.
Just then the small boy who distri
butes papers for the Hawaiian came
along, and Mr. M. P. not being very
clear in his mind as to what the
matter was, came to the conclusion
that he must be the offender, and
drew a bead on him. The Hawaiian
protege will have the nightmare and
cold shivers for a week in conse
quence of his experience, but fortu
nately for all concerned, the neigh
bors interfered, and Mr. M. P. was
conveyed to his customary abiding
place, the lock up.
We thought that we had buried
this concern last week, but like n
nine lived cat it turns up again,
ready for business whenever there
is a smell of gin in the air, ever
ready to supply material for the
Police Court and the newspaper. As
there is only one M. P. now instead
of yesterdays two, the chances of a
repetition have been reduced by f0
per cent, for which tho public should
be devoutly thankful.
RISING SUN STOVE POLISH.
The company which manufactures
the above named article of com
mcrcc hns tho reputation of being
the most inveterate advertiser that
the world has ever seen. The
"Rising Sun" glares the innocent
passer-by iu the face, from one end
of the contiucnt to the other. It is
even said that a sea serpent has been
caught off the coast of Maine, with
"Rising Sun Stove Polish" engraved
on his hide in seven languages and
nine colors. But the company have
hit on a new advertising dodge, and
this morning they have the impudence
to come out iu the "By Authority"
column of the Court Organ, and
unwarrantably make use of the name
of one of our Rising Sons. They
announce that Major Antone Rosa
has been invested with the order of
tho Rising Sun, by the Emperor of
Japan. When private citizens are
made to lend the lustre of their
names to help out a Stove Polish
Company, they must bo vending an
inferior article. This is also an in
vasioifof the sacred private rights of
an esteemed fellow citizen, such as
. . .-. JLjft.
can not bo passed by with safety to
the public welfare, and we hope to
see a terrible example raado of the
reckless individual who is responsible
in this case, that advertisers may
understand Hint the public have some
rights which they are bound to
respect. The Japanese Consul will
also probably take official uotico of
tills improper use of the official col
umn of the Organ, iu a manner dc
rogatory to the dignity of a friendly

Mr. Kaulukou that that was not
enough for Honolulu alone, apart
from the needs of oilier towns. He
moved to increase tho item to 838,
000. Mr. Dole said that Honolulu was
better lighted than ever before, and
a great improvement had been
effected within recent years. As to
light being a preventive of crime,
no Government would think of light
ing country roads with that objee'l.
Mr. W. O. Smith argued that tlio
country could not afford the expense
of thorough lighting of the streets
Mr. Hitchcock advocated the
necessity of moro light in Ililo and
Wniluku, and moved an addition of
81,000 to the item for that purpose.
Minister Neumann thought there
was nothing inconsistent with His
Majesty's message calling for re
trenchment iu a proner expenditure
for roads and bridges, street light
ing, etc. Ho disclaimed motives of
helping a friend in his advocacy of
more light. For or.Oo ho was in
clined to say that the press was right
in clamoring for an extended system
of lighting. At the present cost of
845 per lamp per annum, sixty
needed lamps would tcqtiiic about
SG00O. A total appropriation of
SIC, 000 would, lie calculated, cover
the necessary inei ease iu Honolulu
and the lights needed in other towns.
He therefore moved to make the
Mr. Hitchcock withdrew his
Mr. Pilipo considered it was better
lo wnlk iu darkness a little longer
than to go into debt for light. The
Government had to pay S80,000 in
September on account of debt. Min
isters and representatives were
equally responsible for the increase
in appropriations which he had op
posed. The item passed at 810,000.
The 'Select Committee recom
mended the disbandment of the
armed force and the sale of horses
and equipments, and the appropria
tion of 85,000 to meet liabilities.
Mr. W. O. Smith asked the At
torney General why the horses and
equipments were not sold. Last
night he had been summoned from
his residence to quell a serious dis-.
turbance, in which a mounted police
man while drunk threatened his
family and neighborhood with his
Minister Neumann said he had no
right to sell the property until this
House so instructed him.
Mr. Kaulukou moved that five
horses bo letained and transferred
to the lcgular police service.
Mr. Dole opposed the amend
ment, as no appropriation had been
made for mounted police.
Mr. Kaulukou said that difficulty
was easily met, and advocated the
furnishing of the police with a
"Black Maria" wagon as well as
Mr. Nawalii moved that five
lioisos be placed at tho disposal of
The Chairman ruled that only the
nppropiiation of the money asked by
the Committee was before the House.
The item of 85,000 to cover
mounted police liabilities passed.
Mr. Dole moved that the Com
mittee, when it rises, recommend the
House to order the sale of mounted
police propci ly.
Mr. Cleghorn spoke in favor of
ictaining some of the horses for the
use of the tegular police. He had
had occasion to send for police as
sistance, which could not bo afforded
iu time unless an express were em
ployed. Mr. W. O. Smith suggested that
it would be better to sell those
horses, that were unsuitable for
regular police service, and biry fresh
ones adapted to the work required.
He furthermore thought it would be
more advantageous to have police
men billeted in suburban districts
than to liave them sent there when
Mr. Dole's motion carried.
At 12 the Committee rose and
reported progress, and its report
was adopted by the House.
Mr. Richardson tendered a verbal
repot t of the minority of the com
mittee on 818,000 for palace stables,
recommending that 81,800 be ap

out of Section 4 the p'rovision for
taking vehicles into custody which
have been used iu convoying nnimals

their aiding and abetting, a mis

Section 7, providing for the killing
of animals so diseased, was, on
motion of Mr. W. O. Smith, struck
out, as provision alteady exists in
the law for that object.
Section 8 gives power of attest to
officers of societies for the preven
tion of cruelty to animals.
Mr. W. O. Smith moved it pass as
Section 7, believing thnt there was
liltle or no danger of abuses arising
under the provision.
Mr. Walker, who is President of
the Honolulu S. P. C. A. , reminded
the Assembly that other countries
gave such societies the privilege here
asked, and urged the necessity of
measures to suppress the abounding
cruelty to animals throughout tho
Mr. Nakalcka ventured to demon
strate that the section contravened
the Penal Code, which prescribed
who had the powers of arrest.

WELLS, FARGO & GO.'S EXPRESS.
This Company is a great con
venience to shippers of small pack
ages both in the States and at the
Islands ; but their system of charges
is a contant vexation and amuty'ancc.
As an example : by the last steamer
a gentleman here, received a package
containing three photographs. The
sender prepaid at San Francisco,
all charges, which were assessed at
81, and the package was stamped
"paid." Upon deliver' here, the
local agent made an additional charge
of 81.10, divided into "duties CO
cents" and "charges 50 cents".
What the "charges" is for is not
explained, and customs authorities
say no duties were charged. The
local agent says that it is the fault
of the San Francisco office ; that the
charges arc marked on the packages
at San Francisco, and the have to
collect, that they have numbers of
packages which consignees refuse to
take on account of the supplemen
tary charges. It is not the amount
of the charge, but the fact that a
charge is made, after the sender has
prepaid, that is annoying. If the
Company expect their business to
increase they should remove this
cause of annoyance.
Editok Bulletin: On Monday
evening, as Mr. Robbins, cashier for
G. W. Macfarlanc & Co., was return
ing from the Music Hall, he was
knocked down by a hack and trodden
upon, at the corner of Richard and
Hotel streets. The hack had no
lights, and immediately disappeared
in the darkness, without waiting to
ascertain tho result of the injury
done. It is only a wonder that you
have not a coroners inquest to chro
nicle this morning. Can not the
authorities do something to stop this
criminal carelessness ?

FEEDING THE LEGISLATURE.
Editok Bulletin : I sec by the
papers that Mr. Gibson keeps open
house and hot dinner for all mem
bers of the Legislature. This ex
ample seems to be contagious, and
we sec tho Legislature being dined
and wined and gined by every one
who has a nest to feather or a log to
roll. It seems to me thnt this is
pretty small business, and I 'did not
expect to see the Honolulu Rifles
coming down to such a small potato
scheme to secure an appropriation,
as filling the bellies of a lot of
Legislative scallawags witlt victuals
and whiskey. If the Rifles want an
appropriation why do they not ask
for it, and show the necessity for it
like men, instead of adopting this
ward politician shyster stylo of
business. Let them stand or fall
on their own merits. Every one
knows that all thoy are doing this
thing for is to get votes for their
appropriation which they would not
otherwise secure. If this is not
picayune bribery I should like to
know what is.
Let overy tub stand on its own
bottom say I; and let the members
of the Legislature buy their own
potato salad and whiskey.
