Aflor tho usual preliminaries
Sonator AVright guvo notico o his
intention to introduce a bill to
amend tho law relating to tho im
portation of, livo stock.
On tho order of tho day tho
kerosono oil bill came lip on tho
third reading and passed unani
mously. Tho licenso bill was next in
order on third reading.
"When tho section concerning
tho barbers, license was reached,
tho petition of Chinoo harbors
was brought up, and Sonator
Brown moved tlmt the annual feo
for barbers bo made $25. He did
not boliovo in discrimination.
Minister Damon supported tho
Senator Baldwin thought it was
n kind of a fieezo-out game on
tho part of tho white barbers.
Senator "NVntorhouse arrived
just in timo to ring in tho old
chestnut that cleanliness was noxt
to godliness. IIo believed in
giving tho barber shops every la
titude. Tho rnoro of them tho
bettor, so that everybody could
keop clean. lie moved to strike
out tho entire section. Second
ed by Senator nocking.
rresidont Wilder announced
that ho was teototally oppo-ed to
any tax or system of taxation on
Sonator "Waterhouse's motion
to strike out was loBt and Sena
tor Brown's amendment carried.
Sonator "Wnterhoase moved that
tho section licensing boot and
shoo manufacturers uo stricken
out. Seconded by Senator Hock
ing. Sonator Schmidt said tho li
cense would affect tho poor
man only. It was only tho poor
er class who patronized Oluncso
Sonator Baldwin said tho mo
tion was in lino with President
AVildor's opposition to all liconsos.
Tho lino must bo drawn somo
whoro, and ho thought it should
be tho policy of tho government
to oncourago any agricultural or
manufacturing industry, especial
ly whoro it came into competi
tion with imported goods. Ho
was in favor of tho motion.
The motion to strike out car
ried. Tho section imposing a licenso
on physicians and dentists brought
up another discussion, after tho
reading of tho physicians' and
Senator McCaudloss mqyed
that tho section pass as in the bill
and argued in favor of tho license.
Sonator Waterhouso opposed
tho motion, and called attention
to tho povorty of tho country phy
sicians, many of whom would not
bo nblo to exist woro it not for tho
Board of Health.
Minister Damon said tho peti
tion favored an income tax. This
license was a more in tho direction
of an incomo tax, and yet thoy op
Senator AVatorhouso's motion
to strike out was lost and tho sec
tion passed as in tho bill.
Undor tho section relating to
tho merchandise licenso Senator
Schmidt called attention tho to faot
of sales of merchandise by lottory
and suggested that a tax of 5 per
cent lie imported on all such salos.
Sonator McCaudloss said that
would bo legalizing such sales
Sonator Brown said tho law ex
prossly forbid all such sales. If
it propor complaint was mndo to
tho police such sales could bo im
mediately stopped. Pooplo got
into tho habit of talking on tho
streots about such matters but
they all Beamed afraid to take any
Sfii'itor Waterhouso said tho
pro i i- '.peaker was wrong. Com
plaint had been mndo to tho At
torney General direct on this vory
matter and uo action had been
Minister Damon regretted that
tlio Attorney Goneral was not
prosont to mnlv an explanation,
and tho matter tlmn dropped.
Sonator Wutorh i ' o'h motion
to strike out tho lav of Illis of por
cent on gross sales of miTjlmndto
nud substitute tho original section
proposoil'by tho government was
lost and tho section passed as
amonded on tho second reading.
Sonator Wright introduced nu
amendment to tho dairy liconse
which was indefinitely postponed.
An amendmout was carried al
lowing private families to milk
not hioro than throo cows at any
ono timo, nnd furnish tho surplus
milk to neighbors.
Tho licenso for agents to take
acknowledgments nnd notaries
public was under consideration
whon tho Sonato took a recess to
1:30 p. m.

HOUSE OF KEPIIE&ENTAT1VE3.
Minister King xirosentcd a, re
ply to the question of Bop. Rich
ards about tho electric lights, say
ing "tho Exooutivo havo decided
to retain the control of tho street
electric light systom, increasing
tho number of lights at an early
date. In regard to tho incandes
cent lights, aBido from thoso now
in use for streot lighting and for
public buildings, it is proposed to
discontinue tho incandescent sys
tem in tho near future."
Rop. Eobortson preBonted tho
report of a majority of tho select
coinmittco on tho bill to restrict
target shooting on Sunday. They
believe that tho effect of tho bill
would only bo to movo tho nni-
Ilsanco (if it Is a nnishuce) f roin tho
neighborhood ot thoso who com-
I 1 m I 41 n r W n 111 AH m jl 1 v4 Ik
jjiliiu lu mm ui uiuui jji.-uj.jiu iviju
live boyond tho specified limits.
It would also force tho mnrksmon
to carry thoir riiles longer dis
tances and through more streots
than thoy do at present. Most of
thoso who go target shooting on
Sunday aro momibors of our vo
lnnteor forces and citizens' guard,
men who aro relied on to quell
nny possible disturbance. Their
occupations aro also such that tho
only opportunities thoy havo to
go shooting aro on Sundays and
occasionally holidays. Wo should
not put these inou to expense and
iuconvonionco by compelling
them to go long distances in or
der to got thoir practice. As a
question affecting morals the com
mitteo believe thut to restrict what
is conceded to bo on interesting
and manly recreation would bo to
indirectly encourage habits loss
healthful and perhaps ovon, vi
cious. If any individual's right
to quiet aiuVroposo is interfered
with by targot shooting on Sun
day, tho offender mny bo punish
ed undor tho prosont law relating
to tho obsorvanco of Sunday, and
if religious worship is thoroby
disturbed tho offender may bo
punished undor Chapter 35 of tho
Ponul Codo. Thoy thoroforo re

Believing that somolhing more
dofinito than has hitherto been
published concerning the object
ot the l'ortugneso movomentconld
bo obtained, u representative of
tho Evenino Bulletin inter
viewed J.M. Vivas and asked him
to furnish n definite statement of
tho objects aimed at by tho
society. This Mr. Vivas
courteously did, and in answer
to tho questions propound ed
Mr. Vivas said: Wo boliovo the
present system of contract labor
in vogue in tho Hawaiian Islands
to bo radically wrong. Thero aro
20,000 contract, laborors, on tho
different plantations. This num
bor can bo reduced. Wo propose
to do awuy with all tho contract
labor, and if wo succeed in our
plans wo shall show that tho samo
amount of work can bo dono and
much moro satisfactorily by ono
half that number of frco whito
laborers working for themsolves.
What wo are working for is tho
cultivation of tho cano crop of Ha
waii undor a co-oporativo or sub
letting systom. Boforo wo get
through with this movement wo
will try to bIiow tho govornmont
and tho plantation owners that it
will bo to their mutual interest to
do nway with contract labor on-
tiroly. Tho plaus of. our organiz
ation aro not yet fully matured
but that is tho main object of our
organizing. Whorovor a planta
tion will givo us a chanco tho
United Portuguoso Society will
leaso tho lands and put in tho
crop for a porcontngo of tho gross
yield or a given price por ton of
cano delivered on tho cars or at
tho mills. Tho association will
sublet to tho necessary numbor of
Portuguoso families to do tho
workj or tho plantations may sub
lot directly to any ono or moro of
them,,but it is tho aim of tho as
sociation to oxorciso a sort of su
pervision over the work so that it
will bo proporly dono and givo
tho plantations uo cuuso to com
plain. It is unnocossary for mo
to Btato that a man will work twice
as hard for himself as ho would
on a plantation as a common con
tract laborer. Wo take this fact
into consideration and figuro ac
cordingly. If a man works twice
as hard as tho contract laboror ho
will necessarily earn as much
money, and this is whoro wo ex
pect to make a success of our
scheme Tho wages now paid to
20,000 contract laborors will bo
divided among half that numbor
of Portuguoso or othor whito mon,
for this raovoraont is only aimed
against Chinese and Japanoso.
On tho othor hand tho planta
tion owners, continued Mr. Vivas,
will mako moro monoy. Thoy
will savo tho oxponsoof importing
laborors and hiring overseers to
look after them. Thoy will not
havo to provide anything except
as agreed in tho leaso or contract.
Thoy will simply furnish us tho
laud and wator, fertilizers, etc.,
and wo will do tho rest. Tho pro
ject also aims at leasing govern
ment land whorovor it can bo ob
tained for cultivation in sufficient
proximity to a sugar mill. AVo
boliovo that our plans aro foasiblo
if tho plantors and govornmont
will givo ua a chanco and moot us
In reply to furthor questions
Mr. Vivas said: AVo intond in a
few days to incorporate our socie
ty aud its, object will then bo
moro definitely Bot forth and mudo
public Of course wo aim at hot
ter loprcsontation in the Lccisla-
ture and government departments
than has lately been occordod us,
but thoso aro aftor-considoratious
and wo think tho government will
soo tho justico of our deinnudH in
that ronpoct. The matter of taxa
tion which wo havo petitioned to
the legislature about is ono that wo
have had under consideration for
some timo. Wo know that tho
plantation nnd othor monopolies
wero, not paying thoir just pro
portion of taxes nnd tho figures
recently made public by the Son
ato, committee show that very
plainly. , AVo boliovo that if ovory
corporation, is made to pay its
jtiBt proportion of taxes thoro will
be no want of money for public
improvements and no necessity
for now loans. Our aim is to im
prove the position of the Poitu
gucHB colony in Hawaii by every
means in our power, nnd tho first
means to that end is boing em
ployed in thoroughly organizing
tho colony for mutual protection
and advancement, and by taking
a greater interest in public affairs
than wo havo hitherto dono. AVo
havo no complaint against the
present form of government, that
suits us well enough, but wo cer
tainly think wo aro entitled to
more consideration from its por
Bonnol than we havo hithorto re
coivod. There is nothing secret
about tho objects of our associa
tion, and sovernl prominent plant
ers hnvo already been interviewed
on tho plans I havo outlined to
you. 1 am happy to stale flint ,
they havo so fur expressed their
hearty sympathy with our aims
and promised thoir cordial co
operation in tho future. AVo aro
oncouragetl with tho progress Uiub
far made and hopo that tho gov
ernment may bo induced to help us
along by provonting furthor im
portation of contract labor and

In conclusion, referring to tho
Sunday night riot, Mr. Vivas said
tho wholo colony should not be
blamed for tho acts of a fow, bat
as the matter was still boforo the
courts ho did not caro to discuss
it for publication.
