FltlDAY, Allg. 20tll.
Tlio committee rcsumctl nt 1 :45.
Rep. Thurston considered it his
duty to place liis district nnd liitn
bclf on l coord as against n foolish,
wrongful and useless expenditure.
There uus no sense in throwing
away money on such an object,
when theCiovcrnmcutis owing small
bills to tradesmen, some of them
dating back to 1882. Tlio lion,
member for South lvona spoke of
having had his head broken in 187-1
by a mob that attacked the Legis
lature, and was afraid he would
have his head bioken again if the
kingdom did not maintain p. stand
ing auny. In thatjeaso perhaps the
lion, member ought to be piovidcd
with a guard to follow always
at his heels. For his pait the
speaker would be ashamed to say
that he was afraid to go from his
duties here and face the people. lie
should not be afraid to go back to
his constituents on Molokai and
Lanai. (Reps. Nahinu and Kaulu
kou objected that the lion, member
was not speaking on the item.) He
was not surpiised that the lion,
members objected to having their
conduct exposed, but he was going
to refer to these matters all the
same. Those gentlemen had a hard
task to explain their record to their
constituents. (Rep. Kcau dissents.)
The hon. member for Honolulu was
squirming' in his seat, showing that
he too felt bad. (Rep. Palohau
interrupts with remarks in Ha
waiian.) Hesawthat the member for
llanalci was feeling bad too. If
those members went back to their
constituents and said they tried all
the3' could 'to have money spent in
their districts, they would tell a great,
big, black lie. The difference be
tween the expenditures for show by
private members, and the proposed
expenditure Uy the Legislature for
military put poses, was that those
gentlemen spent their own money,
while the item in question repre
sented the people's money that was
needed for the public benefit. The
member for Ilamakua knew, as lie
h;id told the house, that there was
no money for the roads in his dis
trict, yet he was in favor of this
useless waste of the revenues.
There was nothing more absurd than
to talk of protection from invasion
by those eighty soldiers behind that
stone wall. A foreign man-of-war
could stand off Coco Head and fire
a shell into the barracks that would
kill the whole army, and then they
would see the member for South
Kona scampering off to the hills.
(Rep. Nahinu said he distinctly
stated that the army was not to
defend the country against foreign
invasion, but to preserve domestic
peace and order.) Ho was going to
speak of that. A while ago a lot of
the soldiers were ai rested for steal
ing mush melons fiom a Chinaman.
They were often detected in. such
acts and were nothing but a misera
ble lot of loafers and a menace to
the community. The volunteers were
the best protection the country had,
and he should vote for the item for
Rep. Keau suppoited the item in
Rep. Dickey, referring to the
argument of Rep. Nahinu, said that
his infoimalion, which was as reli
able as tho hon. member's, was that
all the soldiers in the country were
in that mob.
' Rep, Bilker supported tho item,
advocating the shooting down of re
bels. Noble Martin asked if this was
the only military item.
Minister Gibson replied that the
hon. Noble would see several items
there. But it was hardly iair to call
the item for the band a military
item. Neither was it proper to call
the item for volunteers, whose ser
vices were a free wUl offering of citi
zens, a military expenditure. This,
therefore, was really the only mili
tary item, He admitted that there
was ground for some ridicule in tho
spectacle of a little btate of 85,000
inhabitants maintaining a standing
army. Yet it must be remembered
that this was a monarchy, His Ma
jesty being iceogntyed as a King by
all the Great Powers. He received
their ambassador and received
thorn like a King, with a guard
and u band. It was not dilllcult to
seo wheie a. small armed force could
be of very great service in this coun
try. Tlio riot on -Kauai had been
alluded to, and, even if civilinns had
suppressed it before the atiival of the
military, it was no harm that there
were soldiers to send to tho scene of
disturbance on that occasion. The
speaker then recounted the facts of
the Chinese riot at the Immigration
Depot, fo the riot at tlio Quarantine
Giound during the small-pox epide
mic, and to the cotirthouso riot, in
all of which the police were of no
avail to pieserve order, and small
upiads of militiuy were effective to
btippicbs the distui bailees, "With
the 10,000 Chinese and D.000 Portu
guese in this city, although all
peaceable now, theiowas no guaran
tee that homo lace jealousy acting as
a distiubing cause might not preci
pitate a dangerous riot. In such
caso it was hardly probable that an
undisciplined mob would fitnnd
lh. f .a r m
beforo forty or fifty soldiers, with
fixed bayonets nnd ball cartridge,
ready to obey the commands of
their officers: The proposed ex
penditure was not a useless or a
Tho item passed as in the bill.
Bauds, Flags and Salute 40 000
Rep. Brown moved $3(1,000, as in
the revised estimates.
Minister Creigtllon explained that
an increase was necessary, on ac
count of new instruments being ic
quircd by the band.
Rep. Thurston regarded those ob
jects as distinct, and asked what
was tho proportion lcquired for
Minister Gibson said it was very
hard to determine, as there was no
saying how many warships were likc
lj to visit tliis port.
Rep. Thurston said it must be
known how much the band would
cost, and from that tho cost of
salutes could be estimated.
Minister Gibson said tho expenses
of the band might Uncinate for a
variety of reasons, and he did not
think the hands of the Governor,
who had charge of tho service,
should be tied.
Rep. Castle would like to know
the cost of salutest because Gov
ernor Dominis, in a former session,
said $12j000 a year could be saved
in gun powder by having a new
The item passed.
Aid to Aroluntecr Milltai v Com
panies .' 20 000
Rep. Biown moved $12,000.
There were 000 persons in the
volunteer corps, which leprcscnled
a present of SoOO of the people's
money, in remitted taxes. Let them
'make a' paving of $8,000 there.
Minister Creighton moved $2G,
251.34. There were claims against
the corp, mostly by .local ttades
men, amounting to $0,2.V1.M, and
the new expenses were estimated at
$20,000,jbeinga little under 'l),l)0n
each for the seen companies.
Rep. Dole said eillier they should
economize in companies, or the com
panies should do so in uniforms. He
thought the uniforms were in pretty
good condition, and certainly $20,
000 should pay new expen.ses and
Passed at 820,25-1.34.
On motion of Rep. Brown, de
ferred items in the Finance Depart
ment were taken up.
Rep. Dickey asked the Minister
of Finance on what basis the pay of
tax assessors, $33,000, was calcu
Minister Kanoa said it was esti
mated by his predecessor, but, from
his experience as Governor and his
researches to reply to a question by
the hon.' member for. Molokai, he
believed it was on a- basis of four
Rep. Brown moved $2gt',000, ac
cording to tho revised estimates.
Rep. Dickey said a maximum com
mission of five percent was allowed
by law. Four percent was too small
for the country districts, while in
Honolulu the assessor made a higher
salary, iii proportion to the time he
was engaged, than His Majesty. He
had $5,000 for two months' work,
which was ;in tho proportion of
$GO,000 for two years. In answer
to Rep. Kaulukou, he said lie would
take two and a half percent for
assessing, Honolulu. Five thousand
dollai s could be saved in Honolulu
alone, ami he would vote for Rep.
Rep. Hayselden wished to correct
misstatements' of the hon. member.
The work of assessors extended
over four months instead of two,
and at present, while he was engaged
in the Assembly, he had three as
sistants employed and was working
every night till midnight himself.
Thehon. member appareptly thought
it was very easy work, but he should
like to have him try it. 'The duties
of colleciois lasted from Nov. 1st
till June ,1st, and tho collector for
Honolulu was on duty all the year
Rep. Kaulukou supported the item
at $28,000. As the lion, member
for Maka,wao was filling to do the
assessing, of Honolulu at a reduced
rate, somethipg should be done to
stop his hungering and thirsting for
Rep. Thurston said t was hard
for tho hon. member for "Hilo to
understand the case of another
member advocating retrenchment
without having an olllco for himself
in view. Ho constricted that the
hon. member for Honolulu did tlio
least work for the most pay of any
official in tho kingdom. In 1881,
as assessor for Honolulu, ho received
$5,313.17. Each of the distiicts of
Oaliu was as hard to assess as Hono
lulu, yet the assessors of all those
districts received ouly $0,178 alto
gether that year. Hilo's assessment
only cost $1,030, and the whole of
Hawaii $3,779. TJie member for
Honolulu had a pretty solt thing of
it. He concluded by a calculation
that, cirinir two percent f or tho assess-
mcnt of Honolulu, $25,500 would
be sulllcient, anq ho moved to amend
the item tp that figure
Rep. Dickey rose Jo a question of
privilege, respecting hjs dialogue
with tlio membor for Hilo. IIo
wished to say that ho would not
accept an assessorshlp at 10 or eyeu
20 percent while a member of iho
Rep. Hayselden, referring to tho
remarks of tho hon. membor for
Molokai, said that tho tax assessor
ship was not a perinauent office for
himself. Perhaps it might please
His Majpsty to appoint tho lion,
member for Molokai as tax nssessor
for Honolulu next year.
Rep. Thurston- You cannot buy
mo with a tax assessorshlp.
Rep. Hayselden What do you
Rep. Thurston -What over yon
like to make it.
Rep. Hayselden Do you moan to
say I wa9 bought with tile assessor
ship? Rep. Thurston You may apply
the remark any way you please.
Rep. Hayselden I demand to
know what you mean by such an in
sinuation. Rep. Thurston 1 should like to
know what right tlio member for
Honolulu has to question me. I
have no other answer to give him if
he waits till doomsday.
Rep. Hayselden continued to de
mand an explanation of the remark,
until the chairman lapped for order,
saying there was evidently a mis
undei standing between the honorable
Rep. Brown said that the combin
ed amount for lax assessors and
collectors in the Appropriation Bill
of 188-1 was $04,000, which was
afterward reduced, according to re
vised estimates, to $51,000. The
expenditure was $00,484.03, being
$4,000 less than the amount asked
for by the present bill, and the
amount recommended in the revised
estimates was $51,000..
Rep. Hayselden said if the tax
bill passed tho Government would
be in receipt of more taxes, and it
might be necessary, tlicrefoie, to
have an im-ieased appropiiation.
Rep. Castle had been tax assessor
in Honolulu himself, nnd knew thatat
that time thcie was" considerable
more than four months' Work. He
considered that the assessor of Ho
nolulu should be a salaried officer,
lie would move this item pass nt
S20,000, and for a special item of
$5,000 for salary of Honolulu asses
sor, with 81,500 for clerk hire and
Rep. Aholo thonzht the proposi
tion ol the hou. member J or Wni
luku would inciease the expenses.
Ho favored $33,000 for all.
Rep. Thuiston said the expense
last period exclusive of 'Honolulu
was only $0,000. Jf they ndopted
the member for Wailukn's proposal
the service would only cost $25,500.
Rep. Dickey objected to tax
assessors voting on this question.
Rep. Castle said that was part of
the law. No member haying an in
terest in a question could vote on
Rep. Aholo said he was not in the
house in the capacity of an assessor,
but a representative.
Rep. Hayselden said the matter
was in the hands of the Minister of
Finance, who could pay a half per
cent if he chose.
Rep. Castle moved the pay of
tax collectors pass at $20,000, as in
the revised estimates, instead of
Rep. Hayselden moved it pass as
in the bill.
Passed at $31,000.
The item of $1,000, pay of tax
appeal board, passed.
Rep. ThHrston, on tho item of
$207,900, national debt falling due,
asked the Ministers if that included
debt falling due during this period ;
also, how the floating debt reported
to the house was to be paid.
Minister Gibson answered in the
affirmative to the first question,
and, with regard to the second, that
the iloating debt would bo paid after
the Appropiiation Bill was passed.
In answer to a further question, as'
to the authority upon which the
Ministry bad overdiawn tho Appro
priation Bill to the amount of $175,
000 before its passage, he referred
the house to the Indemnity Bill. '
Rep. Dickey said the Indemnity
Bill was for money paid out of the
Rep. Thurston said the Minister
of the Interior w as up to his old
game of dodging. Tho Ministry
had robbed the appropriatiohs'in ad
vance. By tlio Government noting
in this way the Legislature' was
made mere puppets, spending-day
after day discussing whether this or
that should be expended, while tlio
Ministers went on spending money
as they pleased. So long as the
Ministers were doing this, tho mem
bers of the Assembly wero only
making fools of themselves.
Minister Crelghtoiv called1 the hon.
member's attention to the fact that
tho vote was for national debt fall
Rep. Thurston intended to vote
for this, but those facts coining out
ho had to protest against the course
of the Government.
MiuUter Gibson said the hon.
member had indulged in a deal of
rant, or, to use his own expression,
lot. Although he was not in the
Interior Department last period, ho
was not going to take shelter in that
fact. He was a Minister at tho
timo and would accept tho responsi
bility, The Interior report showed
how the indebtedness was incurred.
Tlieie wero various items (citing
them) for bridges, roads and
wharves, Those items were not tres
passing upon tho vote of tho Legis
lature. All that was due for work
not nil of it but some of it it was
by lcgiblutivo authoiity, and thoso
bills would bo paid iih boon as tho
Lcgislntui e appropriated tho money.
Hop. CiiBtlo would liko to ask the
Minister quo question. Was there
any of that debt whioh accrued
pnor to April 1st? Ho supposed
without doubt that any debt accru
ing binco that dato must bo paid out
of this Appropriation Bill,
Tlio item passed.
