horses are a luxury. This is not so. In some
of the oater districts, as Waimea, Hawaii,
horses were a necessity to the common bread
of the people. This tax of oae dollar, which
has beea applied for the last twelve years, had
not succeeded in doing away with the large
number of worthless horses.

Whole. Mr. Hitchcock called to the Chair.
The bill was to reduce the horso tax.
Mr. Rhodes said that if the Minister of Fi
nance yielded ap some or the taxes or the peo
ple, ha wquld be fallowed by the blessings of
the land. He thought that at the present stage
of the appropriation bill this subject ihoald
act be brought up. He was not certain eon
cerning tha subsidy for the California steam,
ers, but the voice of various interests of the
country should be heard. There was a strong
opposition to the meatura in the House, and he
was not certain but it would be successful.
The Ministers should hare a chance to explain
their views in regard to this tax. Ho there
fore moved that the bill bo tabled until tha
subject or the subsidy comes np in its order in
the appropriation bill.
Mr. Kaukaha said that there was no reason
ror postponing this bill, for it was no new
thing, aad decisive action ought now to bo
taken npon it. Ever since 183, this subject
had been np. The taxes on ta and on
women have been taken off, and now the na
tion ask that the hone tax should be reduced.
The publicjnuit not be inconvenienced by tha
paying of a large sum like (30,000 to a steam
er or any other private enterprise. A few men
are enriched, but th common people are made
poorer. The pablie revenue would aot be made
smaller, for we know that a measure to change
the stamp laws will be brought in, that will be
a source of a large revenue.
His Ex. C. da Yarirov said that h had

He wanted to take np and diseass two argu

repeal the hone tax. He did not agree with

he aad his colleagues had adTocated
t'le passage oP the Treaty, and it was for this
end that they had recommended subsidies to
mter-Mland and ocean steamers. They believed
I that it was better to increase the means of
, communication, to enable the poor man to find
, a remunerative market for his oranges, coffee,
. rice, etc., than to reduce this tax on the
ground that it was oppressive He did not be-
lieve it to be oppressive. It was said let the
tax on horses be on an average with other
i taxes. He was willing. The tax on articles or
neeejsity was 10 per cent and on hones, where
. value was said to be 00 an average $10, tho
1 same. Traly tho artielesor necessity paid bat
; once, bat it was consumed, aad the hone was
' not, and if good for anything could earn
; eaoagh for ita owner to enable him to pay one
dollar year. It is tree that in tho District or
Waimea hones were tuntim in . ,
earn his living, hat it was not so everywhere,
and if, ta some instances, hones were a neces
sity, in others they were means of mere
pleasure! sometimes or dissipation. He and
his colleagues would heartily co-operate with
the Representatives in liehteninr th. hnntn
cr the people, bat this was not one, and he
! hoped, especially In view ct the changes that
i may originate from the passage of the Treaty,
I that they woald pause before repealing the
