A PUBLIC LOAN.
AVc cannot say, with the Gazette,
that " wc object ami have always
objected to a loan being contracted
with auyonc." Within moderate
limits anil for purposes of internal
development, we arc anil always
have been favorable to a loan. A
man in business may sometimes ac
quire wealth by the aid of borrowed
capital that he could never hope to
attain without it. lie may also bor
row too largely, or use injudiciously
borrowed 1001103', anil ruin both
himself and tho lender. What is
true in these respects of individuals
is also true of governments. The
trouble with this country is, not
that it has borrowed too much, but
that the borrowed money has been
injudiciously expended. The proof
of this latter proposition lies in the
fact that there is no equivalent to be
seen for the amount borrowed and
expended. Any practical business
man, with a true perception of the
country's needs, and invested with
authority to follow his own judg
ment, could have placed the million
dollars, more or less, where the
country at large would have been
adequately benefited, and the in
crease of revenue would have met
the interest on the money expended
almost from the start. In our
opinion, borrowed money should be
used only for internal development
and improvement, and on reproduc
tive public works. Roads, bridges,
wharves, jetties, etc., come under
this head. Moreover, we'are of
opinion that a couple or three mil
lions of borrowed money could be
advantageously employed in works
of this nature on these islands, and
properly placed, the public income
would be so augmented that the
payment of interest and repayment
of principal would be no intolerable
DOCTOR GOTO'S SUCCESS.
When the salaries of physicians
were being voted tiie other day in
the House the Minister of Interior,
who is also President of the Board
of Health, paid a high compliment
to Dr. Goto, the Japanese doctor.
The Minister said that the doctor
" was very skilful in his specialty,"
and "although it could not be said
that anybody was permanently
cured, yet undoubtedly lives had
been extended and suffering pre
vented by this doctor." A physi
cian's skill can be accurately mea
sured only by the results of his
practice, and not by the class or
number of his diplomas. Tested by
this rule, Dr. Goto's skill is justly
entitled to the praise bestowed upon
it. It is a matter of no consequence
where or how he acquired his medical
knowledge and ability, or whether
his diploma is of value or not in
the estimation of learned medical
societies, he certainly has pioduccd
Boine remaikable results. Quack or
no quack, he has effected visible
and conscious improvement in
patients that had giown giadually
worse under the treatment of "regu
lar" physicians. According to our
information, Dr. Arning, whose
scientific attainments no one ques
tions, called to see one of Dr. Goto's
patients a day or two before leaving
tho country, and expressed surprise
at the wonderful improvement he
saw, declaring that if he had not
had a personal knowledge of the
case from the beginning ho could
not liuvo believed that such results
had been produced. Then, theic
are dozens of other patients under
treatment, all of whom have been
moie or less benefited; and bene
fited, too, in proportion to their ad
herence to tho doctor's instructions.
Not only is there an outward visible
change for the bettor, but the
patients themselves, who ought to
know, positively assert that thcro is
a corresponding internal improve
ment that aches and pains lesson,
nnd that sensitiveness returns to
pnrts previously without feeling.
One elderly intelligent patient, who
1ms been for several years alllictcd
with tho drendful disease, and three
or four months under Dr. Goto's
treatment, declares that he now feels
more vigorous and capable of
greater physical cxeition than
twenty years ago. The writct has
taken special pains to enquire into
this matter personally, not being
satisfied with second-hand state
ments, and has seen with his own
ayes the evidence of external im
provement, and heard with his own
ears the testimony of sufferers re
garding their state of feeling, and is
satisiled that the Japanese doctor
has done, and is doing, great good.
Whether he is able to effect a com
plete and permanent cure is an open
question, which time only can de
cide. But that he is able to alle
viate the worst symptoms of the
disease and ameliorate the condition
of the alllictcd, is a question which
has been unmistakably settled.
Amelioration is an accomplished
fact. Let us hope that eradication
BREAKING THE THREAD.
A Chronicle reporter in his re
port of an interview with a promi
nent naval olllccr, says: "The sub
ject seemingly having come to a
point when it could only be continued
without Hearing a conclusion, the
current of thought was changed."
That reminds us of the method
pursued in the Legislative Assembly
of changing "the current of thought"
by moving an adjournment when
ever the question under debate be
Mr. Castle is reported to have
said, when the appropriation for the
Reformatory School came up for
consideration yesterday, that "it
was lepresented to the committee
that there was an increased number
of inmates, so that $15,000 would
be required for the support of the
school." Whoever made this le
presentation was not hampered with
any strong attachment to truth. The
fact is, that the institution referred
to has not had so small a number of
inmates for the past ten years as at
the present time. The daily aver
age for the ten j'ears ending Decem
ber 31, 188j, exceeded 50, whereas
the piesent attendance is a good
way below that figure. Forty-two
was the number given by the Super
intendent a few weeks ago, and the
increase since then, if any, is small.
THE TREATY SAFE.
As stated in the item, of Foreign
News printed yesterday, the adjourn
ment of Congress has taken place
without any action whatever on the
Hawaiian treaty. In spite of the
hue and cry raised by the Advertiser
to strengthen the hands of the
enemies of the treaty at Washing
ton, the Hawaiian representative has
succeeded in staving off the notice
of abrogation which at one time was
thought to be determined on. The
heavy artillery hi ought to bear by
the opponents of existing trade re
lations between the United States
and Hawaii, consisted mainly of tho
reproduction of the "discrimination"
editorials of the Honolulu Adver
tiser. Although the articles referred
to were shown up by the Bui.ixtin
to be scandalous bunkum published
for the contemptible purpose of
making a little local electioneering
capital, they were accepted and
made the most of by thoso opposed
to the treaty as the utterances of tho
organ of the Hawaiian Government.
The Kingdom is fortunate in that
the treaty was in the care of an able
and patriotic Hawaiian citizen, who,
not without some dilllculty, managed
to defeat the little game of the Ad

The institution had, it was true,
largely outlived its usefulness and
original purposes, as a refuge for
sailors'in the port. But, since the
late fire, the large wooden structure
was recognized as a menace to sur
rounding propei ty. Had it taken
lire on that occasion, it would pro
bably have carried tho llamcs to the
new Police Station, Schacfcr's and
other blocks. The Association were
willing to give up their valuable
frontage on Merchant street, and to
put up a new building further hack
on Bethel street, provided the Legis
lature duplicated the amount of
$t,000 whenever the Association
subscribed so much.
Rep. Brown favored the passage
of the item, as, if it was not in
serted, the Government would pro
bably have to pay more to the Asso

be taken in widening Bethel street.

TnunsD.VY, Aug. 10th.
The Assembly met at 10 a. m.,
being opened with prayer by the
Chaplain. Present: Ministers Gib
son, Croighlon, Kanoa and Dare;
Nobles Walker (President), Dow
sett, Kapena and Martin; Reps.
Ilayhclden, Keau, Lilikalani, Baker,
Kauhi, Amara, Brown, Kaulia, Pa
llia, Kaunamano, Wight, Naliale,
Aholo, Kaukau, Castle, Dickey,
Kaai, Thurston, Paohaole, Kauai
and Palohau. The minutes of yes
terday were read and confirmed.
Rep. Kaunamano presented a re
port irom the Sanitary Committee,
on a petition of 110 residents of
Waimea, Kauai, praying that the
people of Kauai have authorit3- to
take care of lepers at Hanapepc.
They are of opinion that the prayer
of the petition is a very good one,
but doubt the authority ot the house
to make the changes prayed for, be
lieving that the matter was in the
province of the Board of Health.
They recommend that the petition
be laid on the table.
Ren. Thurston agreed with the
conclusion, but not the reasoning, of
the committee, and moved the report
be adopted, which carried.
OltDKll OP THE DAY.
On motion of Rep. Haysclden,
the house proceeded to the order of
the day, resolving into committee of
the whole,Noble Kapena in the chair,
for the consideration of the tax bill.
Sec. 27, amending sec. 01, was
read. It provides that the collector
shall pay the taxes collected by hiin
to the Governor on or before the
last day of December, with the ex
ception of the school tax, which
shall be paid over to the school
treasurers ; that he shall be liable
to forfeit ten percent of his compen
sation if he fails to pay the amount
by that time, and to have his bond
prosecuted on or before the lirst day
of February if still defaulting, and
to be guilty of embezzlement if the
money is not paid by the 1st of
Rep. Brown thought the section
conflicted with the Auditor's Act.
Ren. Castle considered that this
section could repeal so much of the
Auditor's Act as was in conflict with
it, and moved an amendment to
make the exception of the school tax
a general exception, to include all
taxes that may now or hereafter be
required by law to be paid to any
olllccr other than the Governor.
Rep. Dickey suggested a verbal
amendment to'thc amendment, which
was accepted by Rep. Castle.
The amendment was defeated, but
Rep. Haysclden moved reconsider
ation, because some members did
not seem to have understood the
question, which carried.
Rep. Hayselden moved the sec
tion pass as in the bill.
Rep. Castle suhmitteil an altered
form of his amendment.
The amendment was supported
by Reps. Brown, Dickey and Castle.
Rep. Hayselden was opposed to
any olllcer receiving taxes, oven tho
school treasurers. The money
should go into the treasury direct.
Noble Bishop believed if that
iiad been tho law during the last
few years, tho way things were man
aged, tho schools would have been
shut up, for theschool money would
have gone the way of the road
Rep. Kaunamano considered tho
amendment a good one, but that it
should not be hastily passed. If
tho road money was left in the dis
trict, there would be less call on tho
Legislature for aid to roads ami
bridges. Expenses for repairs were
greatly increased under tho present
system, owing lo work being de
layed wailing for money. All that
was done in Hamakua District on
the rords last period was by tho
lion. Noble Parker, but he did not
know whether the Government re
funded him the money, or not. Ho
blamed the Ministers for not ex
pending the money appropriated for
the several districts.
Minister Gibson desired to reply
to some unfair stricture by the lion,
member for Wniluku and the lion.
Noble Bishop, with regard lo roads
and schools. An amount of $M8,
000 was voted by the last Legisla
ture for roads and bridges, and
$204,000 were expended. He re
gretted that his predecessor had
drawn on the loan funds instead of
the unexpended road balances. If
he had confined himself to the ap
propriations, however, there would
have been $150 000 less spent than
was the case. He was surprised at
the reflections of the lion. Noble, a
former member of the Board of
Education, to the effect that the
schools would have gone down it it
had not been for the money in the
hands of the local school treasurers.
There was $100,000 appropriated
for schools, $i) 1,300 of which was
expended, but none of it by the
treasurers of the districts.
Rep. Castle denied the statement
that the road taxes had been more
than paid back. The report of the
Minister's predecessor convicted
him of misstatement.
Noble Bishop said he had not in
tended so much to pass stricture
upon tne Hoard of J'.ilucation, nut
merely to say tint if the money was
paid into the Treasury as the road
money was, there would not have
been enough to keep the school
open. There was $15,000 appro
priated for building and repairs of
schoolhouscs, but very little was
drawn from the Treasury for that
purpose. As a member of the Educa
tion Committee he had asked why
necessary buildings were not put
up, some of which had been dis
cussed as far back as when he was a
member of the Board, lie ascer
tained that the icason was that
thcrj was not money in the trea
sury, and the money that was ex
pended in buildings and repairs was
taken chiefly from the hands of the
local treasurers. With regard to
the roads, not even the money col
lected in the districts was expended,
let alone the amount appropriated.
Rep. Thurston wished to expose
the fallacy uttered by the Minister
of the Interior. If there was one
thing that Minister was proficient
in, it was dodging a point and he
had dodged it there. The fact was
that $257,500 was appropiated for
roads and bridges last period, of
which there was expended SI GO, 000.
There was unexpended from 1882
$38,000, of which $28,000 was
spent, leaving $10,000 never ex
pended till this day. In 1884 the
tax was $104,000, of which only
$53,000 was expended. The fallacy
of the Minister was in representing
the road tax as having been expend
ed although the law required it to
have been spent m the districts
where collected, and a vast majority
of the districts had not got their
road taxes back. If $100,000 had
been expended in Honolulu, the
Minister would have defied the law,
as he had done.
Minister Gibson did not take
credit for being so adroit as the lion,
member represented him. He was
not opposed to this amendment.
What he meant was that the people
had the benefit of the road lax to
the amount mentioned by him. He
believed that the Treasury should
be the only depository of public
Rep. Dickey believed the road
taxes would be sulllcient if expended
promptly and properly. Often five
minutes work at the right time would
save hundreds of dollars of expense.
Rep. Kaulukou said all this dis
cussion would have been sived if
Rep. Hayselden had not moved re
consideration. He opposed the
amendment, on tho ground that
there should bo only one Treasury
in the kingdom. There might be a
change of Minister any day, and if
the members for Molokai and Wai
luku became Ministers they would
like to have control of all the public
The amendment carried, 19 to 13,
the Ministers voting in the minority.
