llep. Kulua read a first time nil
net for tlio relief of Chas. B. "Wilson,
Superintendent of tho Honolulu
Waterworks, nnd moved n suspen
sion of the rules to have tho bill
rend a second time by title, which
Hop. Kaulukou moved to refer
tho bill to n select committee.
Minister Dnro opposed the motion,
saying no more select committees
should be appointed this session,
and the standing committees should
be urged to clear their tables of
work. He moved in amendment
that the bill should bo referred to
the Judiciary Committee.
Rep. Dole seconded tho motion.
Having been employed in connec
tion with the case, ho should not
like to bo appointed on a committee
to judge the case.
Hep. Knlua also objected to serve
on such a committee, owing to his
interest in the case as the intro
ducer of the bill.
Rep. Kaulukou, as chairman of
the Judiciary Committee, raised
similar objections to taking part in
an enquiry into the case, he having
heard statements that induced him
to believe that relief should be
Rep. Aholo deprecated the dis
position of members to shirk ser
vice on committees. He thought,
if a select committee was appointed,
the introducer of the bill should be
one of the committee. As it was,
however, he favored reference to
the Judiciary Committee.
Rep. Kaunamano favored a select
The amendment, to refer to Judi
ciary Committee, carried.
Rep. Dole gave notice of an act
to amend sec. 4, chap. 45, laws of
1881, entitled an act to facilitate
the acquiring and settlement of
homesteads. He also read a first
time an amendment to article 15 of
the Constitution, relating to the
withdrawal of money from the
Rep. Kaunamano moved a resolu
tion, thanking Hon. S. G. Wilder
for his tender of the steamer Like
like and his invitation to the As
sembly to visit the leper settlement
on the Island of Molokai, on Friday
night next, and directing that the
Assembly notify that gentleman of
their acceptance of his kind invita
Rep. Brown asked for a reply
from the Minister of Foreign Affairs
to the resolution enquiring for in
formation regarding the admission
Minister Creighton read the fol
lowing statement: In reply to the
questiou put to me by the hon.
member for Koolauloa I have to say
that all persons of Chinese nation
ality who have landed in tho king
dom since May 15th, 188G, have
possessed passports regularly issued
under the regulations of 1st Sept.,
1885. The passports presented by
these people were chiefly issued at
Honolulu, only women and children
being able to obtain them at Hong
kong or San Francisco. These all
bear the visas of the Consuls-General
at Hongkong and San Fran
cisco, and those issued in Hong
kong have also the visa of the San
Francisco Consulate endorsed upon
them. There can therefore be no
doubt as to the genuineness of these
documents. One of the passports
was issued by mo under Regulation
No. 4, to Mr. Yep Foo, a store
keeper of this city, well known to
many persons here, who, after the
great fire of April last, went off to I
ban i'rancisco on business. He ob
tained the usual certificate from the
United States Consul-General here
to enable him to enter the States
and assumed that this was all that
was necessary. On his arrival by
the Australia on Thursday last ap
plication was made to me by per
sons of repute to grant him a pass
port, and he was not allowed to
leave the ship until a permit to land
was issued to him by myself, The
house will observe that what I have
had to state is (except as to dates)
merely a repetition of what my pre
decessor in office (Hon. Mr. Gibson)
said in the concluding paragraphs
of the statement on Chinese Immi
gration, which he made to the As
sembly on the 17th May ; and I can
assure honorable members that the
regulations of September last arc
strictly adhered to, that great pains
are taken to secure reliable evidence
that the persons receiving passports
arc what they represent themselves
Rep. Kalua moved tho Minister's
reply bo laid on the table. The
people were getting sick and tired
of tho continued influx of Chinese,
in spite of all tho regulations for
their restriction. With' regard to
the first party or parties of Chinese
arriving hero .after tho latest and
most restrictive regulation, the ex
planation was given that thoy left
Hongkong before tho regulation was
announced there. But every vessel
since brought more Chinese, and
there were- suspicions abroad that
some persons hero were making a
good thing in fees for passports.
Probably the Ministry would say
thoy were doing all thoy could to
carry out the public desire iu. this
regard, but they should have taken
active measures long ago.
Rep. Knulukou was saying that
some people hnd a great terror of

order that a motion to lay on the

The President Mistaincd tho point.
Rep. Knulukou said ho bowed to.

therefore give notice of nn act.

order that the question before tho
house was the tabling of the Minis

Rep. Kaulukou gave notice of nn

Rep. Castle presented the follow
ing resolution: Resolved, that a
select committee be appointed for
the purposo of investigating tho ex
penditures of the Board of Health,
together with nil other expenditures
for the public health ; the methods
of said Board in procuring supplies
and all other matters under the con
trol and direction of said Board of
Health, and that such committee re
port in writing within two weeks
from date. In moving its adoption
ho referred to public complaints
about the Board receiving .supplies
Rep. Kaulukou moved the order
of the day, which the President was
about to put, when Rep. Castle ob
jected that it had not been seconded.
A discussion on this point was start
ing up, but it was cut short, at
12:10, by Noble Cleghorn moving
for a recess till 1:30, which carried.
The house resumed at 1 :50, and,
on motion of Rep. Ilayselden, pro
ceeded to the order of the day.
Second reading of an act to amend
sec. 1, chap. 4, laws of 187G, relat
ing' to drunkenness.
Rep. Castle Baid the bill had been
referred to a select committee on
liquor bills, nnd had not yet been
reported up. In reply to a statement
by the President, that the Secretary's
book had no record of such refer
ence, he read the resolution under
which it should have been referred.
Rep. Aholo moved the consider

Second reading of an act to license
tailors. It provides that tailors shall
take out licenses, paying a fee' of
$25, under a penalty of $10 fine or
30 days' imprisonment.
Rep. Castle said that some time
ago the former Minister of the In
terior had given notice of a bill re
lating to business licenses. The
law needed amendment, and he
asked the Minister .of the Interior
if he knew anything about that other
Minister Gibson was glad his at
tention had been called to the matter,
and he would attend to it.
Rep. Castle moved.the bill be laid

Rep. Nahiuu said he introduced
this bill in accordance with the
prayer of a petition from his Dis
trict. The bill was tabled.
Second reading of an act relating
to the practice of law in the Police
and District Courts. Introduced
by Rep. Keau. It provides that
" no person shall be allowed to
practice law in the Police and Dis
trict Courts of the kingdom without
a license, provided that any person
may appear to prosecute or defend
his own cause, and that of any one
of his family." It is an amendment
of the law of 1878.
Rep. Keau moved the bill pass.
Rep. Castle moved it be referred

Rep. Castle indicated a clerical
blunder in the bill, where it men
tioned sec. 1074 C. of the act of
1878, which had one section only,
amending the above section of the
Civil Code. He moved to amend
the bill in this respect, withdrawing
his motion to refer to the Judiciary
Rep. Brown moved tho bill bo
considered by paragraphs, which
carried, and then Rep. Castle's
amendment was put and carried.
Rep. Kaulukou, in regard to the
Attorney - Geaeral's amendment,
thought a man should be allowed to
appear for his relatives within four
Minister Dare, in reply to Rep.
Dickey, said that, according to the
common law of. England, a man's
family was his wife, children, and
The amondment carried,
Rep. Castle moved to strike out
the words repealing sec. 1073 of tho.
Civil Code, which carried.
Rop. Dickey moved to add, "Tho
word family in this section shall be
held to mean n man's parents,
brothers and sisters, wife and des
cendants." Rep. Richardson moved to amend
the amendment by addiug, "and .his
cousins and his aunts."
Minister Dare, saying tho bill
being defective in its wording, and
its introducer not defending it,
moved theennotijig olause bo stricken
out, afterward substituting a motion
that tho bill bo indefinitely postponed.
Rep. Cnstlo, in- reply to nn argu
ment of Rep, Dickey in favor of
lay practitioners in the cases men
tioned, said ho believed, from his
experience at the bar, that this would
be a good act or the lawyers, us

mess of their cases In the lower

Second reading of an act to pro
vido for the appointment of an
olfleiul stenographic reporter for "the
.courts of the kingdom.
Minister Dnro moved the bill be
considered by Sections.
Rej). Keau moved in amendment
that it be indefinitely postponed.
Rep. Castle supported the motion,
speaking of the importance of hav
ing accurate lccords of evidence in
the superior courts. Judges and
barristers made minutes of the
evidence, nnd there were often dis
putes over varying versions. An
ofllcial reporter, hc.said, would also
take down the points of law in the
arguments of counsel and the charge
of the judge. This bill was intro
duced by the late Attorney-General,
and was no doubt a Government
Rep. Kaulukou admitted tho
soundness of the previous speaker's
arguments, but still there was no
reason to suppose the reporter would
be infallible. Besides, he might be
approachable with considerations,
when great issues were at stake, for
falsifying the evidence. The Chief
Justice had told him the reporter re
quired to have a knowlcdgo of legal
terms, and one so qualified could not
be got in this country. He favored
Rep. Keau objected to the title,
as one man could not report for all
"the courts of this kingdom." Then
he objected to the expense, which
would be very great. The people
were asked to vote a large sum for
the pin pose of saving the lawyers
little disputes. There was no sug
gestion of the necessity for such an
official in the report of the Chief
The motion to indefinitely postpone
the bill cariied.
Minister Dare desired to chango
his vote from no to aye, in order to
move a icconsideration of the deci
sion of the house to-morrow. The
action of the house was not credit
able to the intelligence of the
members, or indicative of their
having well considered their votes.
There was nothing more impor
tant to the people of this king
dom than correct evidence in the
courts of law. In the absence of a
coriect record of evidence there was
nothing whatever on which to appeal
from the unrighteous decisions of a
trial judge. Members might say
there was no appeal from the Su
preme Court, but there was such an
appeal an appeal to public opinion
on the facts.. The greatest danger
to the lives, liberties and possessions
of the people of this country lay in a
laxity of the system of recording evi
dence. The gentleman from Hilo
said that the reporter should be a
lawyer, but , that was not so. God
preserve them from a lawyer or a
judge who was a reporter. The re
porter should he a machine to take
down the words exactly as they fall
from the lips of witnesses.
Rep. Dickey said a stenographer
was good, and so was a sewing ma
chine. In their grandmother's days
tho women were the sewing ma
chines, and people did not need so
much clothing as now. There was
no rush for a short-hand re
porter here, as there was in
the States. The law was admin
istered here without reporters as
well as in the United States, eminent
jurists from abroad'had compliment
ed our courts on the purity and
efficiency of the administration of
justice. He believed their records
of evidence were as pure as those of
any other country. One of the
Judges of the Supreme Court had
told him that an ofllcial reporter
would be a good thing if the coun
try could afford it.
Minister Dare asked when the
Supreme Court judges were ap
pointed a committee of this Assem
bly. Rep. Dickey said he did not con
sider them a committee of this As
sembly. Minister Dare said it seemed tho
hon. member had consulted th,em as
.Rep. Dickey considered tho jud
ges knew a good deal moro about
tho necessities of the courts than
Rep. Dole commended the praise
worthy spirit manifested by the
hon. member for Makawao, but that
gentleman was not a lawyer and
therefore could not see the full im
portance of this question. Even
tho indifference of the judges did
not indicate that the services of an
official reporter were not required.
The lawyers represented, or were
likely to renresent at one timo or
another, every person in the com
munity. He proceeded to show how
much depended upon coriect re
cords of evidence, and to point out
grievances arising from the absence
of an. indisputable report of testi
mony and of judicial charges. I(
seemed to him that It was ns much
of a necessity to have nn oiliolal re
porter ns to have a Chinese or Port
uguese interpreter. Those eminent
jurists from abroad had no opportu
nity of observing the inside working
of our judiciary system, As matters
stood, lawyers were averse to carry
ing cases to the Supreme Court in
banco, on account of the uncertainty
that characterized the records. .
