Roll called, Senators Wilcox, Kauhano nnd Baldwin absent. Minutes o yestorday woro read and approved. Two communications woro re ceived from tho House, ono stating that A. G. M. Robortson had boon appointed a committeo of ono to net with n similar committeo from tho Senate in notifying tho Pre sident that tho House was ready for business, and tho other con taining n'list of tho now standing and joint committees of tho House. Sonntor Brown of tho Commit teo on Rules reported two amend ments from tho committeo, which took tho usual course. Senator Brown reported that with Roprontativo Robertson he had duly notified tho President that both Houses woro ready for business. Senator Brown offered a reso lution that when tho Sonuto ad journ, it .adjourn to moot at 10 o'clock on tho following day. Car ried. Minister Damon moved to sus pend tho rules and present two appropriation bills, ono relating to salaries and payrolls and tho other to current espouses. Car ried. Mr. Damon then mndo tho fol lowing remarks: "In presenting these bills, I would say that tho public has taken so largo an interest in general in tho financial outlook of tho coun try for tho past two years, I think a now status possibly may bo mado in which tho Minister of lunance should coiuo boforo tho fund dis posing portion of tho Legislature and make a statement of what his prospects are for tho coming two years, somowhat mora gonornl perhaps thnn could bo made in tho report which has been mado to tho President. In submitting thoso bills, and also outlining other bills which will como boforo tho consideration of tho Sonata and tho House it has been tho policy of tho Executive with roferouco to these proposals and in ordor that tho Senate and tho House may learn and lmvo in view what tho bill is liko without being taken unawares by proposi tions which may already lmvo re ceived tho consideration of tho Senate. Tho first bill which I lmvo pre sented to you today is a bill cov ering salaries and pay rolls which has been prepared and translated in proper form. There is a bill that has already passed tho Exe cutive covering current expendi ture, which 1 expected to have hero today, but which is in tho hands of tiio translator. I was dis appointed that it was not rondyto present to yoil today, but I will probably bo ablo to do so by tho next meeting of tho Senate. Fol lowing theso two bills thoro is a bill providing further loans for tho Minister of Financo for tho coining two years. You aro all woll aware Mint our surplus whioh wo had at tho beginning of tho Inst year was vnry heavily drawn upon by reason of tho insurrec tion and the cholora epidemic; MiU8 mnkingour oxponses laBtyonr very large; wo lmvo expended something liko two millions of dollars and it has boon a very heavy drain on tho country and its resources. This bill that I prosont for your consideration this morning in connection with tho appropriation bills is to allow tho Minister of Finance to mnko nrrangenionts with or deal with tho banks or tho capitalist during tho month or at the ond of the month or nt bucIi times as the Treasury and its re sources from various reasons shall have been somewhat reduced, that ho can tako the drafts or the or ders of tho Ministers of the differ ent Departments nnd place them with a bank or banks and recoive advances on them until such time as tho trensury is in a position to tako thorn up, it may bo a month, a week or perhaps only a day or two, tho bank or banks being allowed tho usual interest at G-por cent. This gives tho Executive and tho Minister of Financo a broador opportunity to meet tho demands upon tho Trensury with out any unnecessary delay. 1 hope Mint tho Treasury at somo day not far distant will lmvo such areBcrvo-dn hand that it will not bo necessary to call for this moans of securing loans, but this is a privilege, which every civilized nation lias taken advantage of and' with tho interest that our own citizens are taking in our welfare I think will be a means of sustaining and also of increasing our credit. Tho proposed act covering snlnries and payrolls calls for the two years ending Docombor 31st, 1897, 61.939,734. Togothor with tho act appropriating, $1,GG3,937.-. G3 for tho general exponses of tho Republic, it shows n total estimated expenditure of S3,G03,G71.G3, an iucreaso ot appropriations over tho provious biennial period of S71.891.G8. laking as a guide tho receipts of tho current rovonuo for tho past two years: S3,-139,05(i.-M, it shows that $104,615.19 ought to bo pro vided, though I apprehend $300, 000, would bo a safer provision, for unlookcd for outlays will,from past experience ensue. To raeot this; nn iucreaso of revenues is anticipated ns below: From tho Customs of (50,000. From tho taxes increased by a change of date of assessment S70, 000. From tho working of the now license net $40,000. From revenues of government hinds, a portion of which woro formerly under tho crown,$20,000. A more careful interpretation of tho Stamp Act would show nn incronso of $10,000, Government realizations $15,000, Water rates and postal servico $15,000, Legacy tax yl0,000. Total estimated iu creaso of revenues $210,000. From those estimates and from thoso appropriations which from present tiuforsoou causes may not bo oxponded, I hope for a surplus on December 31, 1897, of $-10,000. Tho anticipated rovonuo arising from the proposed chnngo in tho dates of assessment nnd collection of taxes will not tako oil'ect until 1897 and for nearly tho samo causo, though its adoption will bo moro gradual, tho increased rev enues for licenses will not bo mado in 1890. To moot tho calls of tho treas ury during tho interval tho net to further provide for tho payment of current accounts is asked for, to bridgo over the interval should tho Ijxecutivo hud it necessary. This act is fixed at tho duration of two years, and it is not appro hondod that more than $150,000 will bo required at any ono timo, nnd will bo repaid from cun out t rovonuo at any timo when funds , from that sourco aro in hand. I Tho statement that I lmvo made brings us now to tho point where J wo leave tho current rovonue. I I think it has been a very happy mrtliod of handling tho finances I of this country that tho different I Ministers in pabt timos have endeavored to soparnto tho curronl funds from the loan funds j thatas much as possible wo shall conlino our oxponsos to general exponses of tho Govornmontso that j if wo expend loan funds or current funds thoro shall bo for that ox- pondituro something in return, there simu uo something coming back, something that if wo aro asked what has a certain sum been oxponded for thoro will bo something to show for it. If tho books of tho Government should bo kept, and as wo hope thoy will bo kept somo day, whoro wo lmvo an account so our land resources, i our public buildings, our school funds, otc, can show everything that has boon oxponded for each, this will certainly show an advanco in tho interests of tho country. Wo loavo now tho current ac count and in n very few words I wish to state what tho proposition j of tho Executive is with roforonco to our bonded lonn fund account. I Tho prosont debt of tho country is ' somothing over Threo Millions of Dollars, thes6 bonds show inter- est varying from 12 per cent, i down to opi cent. Thoro aro a few I of tho bonds bearing interest at ! 12 por cont., 1 think only $15,000 j belonging to tho Board of Eduen-1 tion, others bearing interest at 7 per ' cont., a great majority at o per cont. and i'ow at 5 per cent. Tho proposition of tljo Executive is to ask tho Legislature to pass an Act allowing tho Minister of Fi nanco nt such times ns ho mny think prudent to cousolidnto tho present bonded dobt in any ono issuo, whether it is done partially horo and partially in a foreign govornmont remains -with tho future developments. I lmvo sout. n copy of tho Act which I orignally drafted to London for consideration and to obtain their viows. I lmvo secured tho advice of men who woro interested in loan matters and tho draft was : prepared aftor thoroughly review ing tuo subject; tno urnit was thou submitted to tho Council and redrafted and submitted to tho Executivo who allow it now to come boforo tho Legislature. I was advised that it would not bo wise for tho Government to cite in tho original draft just what each expenditure would bo for but that should como in a follow ing act which will bo presented to you. I lmvo stated tho proposal with roforonco to tho prosont bonded indebtedness, and anothor act will bo submitted for your consideration dealing with tho subjoct of future loans. It is tho intontion of tho Exec utive to propose that a highway shall bo placed in Mio Konn Dis trict, also a wharf hero and at Hilo and new highways near Hilo and that tho othor islands shall receive duo Rnrfsirlnrnf inn : flint I school buildings shall bo orccted and it may bo necossury that somo now public buildings should bo erected, thoy will como under what is known ns tho Now Loan Act. It is proposed Mint this shall bo a gonoral loan which may bo drawn on when needed, it being compulsory that tho monoy shall only bo devoted to Public Im provonionts, Education and Im migration, and that tho Legisla ture shnll specify .how much and for what purpose it is to bo drawn on. Thoro is $20,000 remaining of tho old Loan Act, but it is so tied up as to bo unavailable for tho purpose required. This Act is also followed by an Act. limit ing tho powers of tho Minister of Financo in mnking his arrange ments with thoso who ohooso to tako our bonds nnd with syndicates who proposo to tako thorn in largo amounts." In concludiug tho Minister re ferred to proposed measures con corning tho License Act and tho Tax Laws, and said that tho fact that during tho threo years ho had hold oflico the public in our own community had subscribed for bonds to tho amount of $510,000 had given him" a great deal of on courngomont in handling tho finances and ho thought that it wo continued in tho samo consorva tivo niannor it would only bo n short timo before tho present in debtedness would bo largoly de creased. Attornoy-Oonoral Smith, under suspension of tho rulo3,inlroduced a bill relating to tho commouco mont of tho fiscal period, whioh was read tho first timoand roferred to tho printing committee. Under suspension of tho rules Minister King introduced a bill to amend cortnin sections of tho Land Act rolating to homesteads.
