Kksolttioxs. Mr. Hitchcock renewed the
resolution of yesterday in regard to" taking the
vote on trabsidr at 2 r. u., with the amend
ment that at 1:30 r. j. the Attorney abonld
hare the floor. Carried.
Mr. Pilipo offered a resolution that the sala
ries of the teachers at Lahainalnna be, for the
Principal, SlOO; 2d Principal, $1,400; Teach
er. $560. Tabled until the consideration of
the appropriation bill.
Mr. Knihclam introduced a bill to amend
Section Article 70 of the Civil Code, in rela
tion to the sale of A wa, the bill was to decrease
the price of licenses and increase the number
of place a for its sale. He also introduced a
bill to amend Sec ?0 of the Civil Code', in re-
' gird to the number of Beprcsentatives.
Unpen or the Uat. A nul to promote
ocean, steam navigation.
Mr, Wilder moved to refer to a Committee
of the Whole,
Mr. Lyon 5 amended to instruct the commit
tee to act upon Mr. Hitchcock's resolution.
Passed as amended.
.Mr. Wilder said, as a member, he deemed it
his duty to say why be thought the bill should
not pass. He did not wish to be understood
as opposed to steam in the abstract. But the
point he wished to keep before the House was,
the girinj: of so large a sum unnecessarily.
Subsidies was sparingly granted by all coun
tries. It tends to sustain vast monopolies.
The California, Oregon Jt Mexico Company
was one of these, a company, that by its im
mense wealth, domineered orer the State of
California. The company was headed by a
man who could, if he wished, buy up the en
tire island, and who seldom attempted any
thing but lie succeeded. What did be care
far the general good of these islands? He
only wished to control the whole trade of the
islands and cut off all competitors. The way
bills of the packet were straight forward and
simple, but those of the steam company were
exceedingly blind and full of protection to
everything except the freighter. He referred
to transhipment or fruit ; said that in boulh j
laiuornia- everyuung coma oe raisea mere
that could be raised in the islands, and onlr
two and a half days from San .Francisco. A
person here had shipped 95 bunches of bana
t nas by the steamer and lost nearly all, but by
' the bark Comet a large amount was shipped
j which arrived in good order. The $M,u00
asked for must be borrowed, and the principal
j with the enormous interest would, at the end
! of 25 years, amount to $117,000. And all
r rioe that would end in two years.
' The line was sure without a subsidy fur
, ten years, ihe Jiinister.at Washington said
he doubted not that the subsidy from the
American Government would be raised so as to
keep two steamers running each month. Is it
wise then to burden an over-taxed people with
this large sum? 2Cot only sound reasoning,
but a sacred regard for the people constrains
us to vote against this bill. He could aver
also that not a planter woo id be benefitted by
the carrying of sugar by steam instead of saiL
He should vote against the bill.
Jdr. Lyons said that he was careful yester
day not to say anything against the steamer
company, but be bad learned so much in re
gard to them that he must say more, and ex
pose their falseness.
Mr. 1th ode called the speaker to order for
using unparliamentary language,
Mr. Lyons proceeded: The agents had stated
before the Committee on Commerce that the
coal used on one trip wtls about 375 tons, the
Captain had sworn that it was about 250 tons,
and that statements bad been made about the
smallness of freight that afterwards was proven
nntrue. Those statements were made before '
the Committee to get more subsidy, and as
soon as it was secured here they would go to
Washington and get more there.
Mr. Kalu said that be was strongly opposed
to the bilL For many years all the benefits
reommcrce had come through sailingveels,

something uncertain. The Ministers said that
oanj benefits would come from the
steamers, he did not know for certain. After
hearing all. for and against the subsidy.be
was of opinion mat it should not pass. Jus-
that the" people '
oce to tie people demanded that
should have a voice in the disposi!
position of the i
public money, but they did not wish, to hare
the money given to people ont of the eoun'trr.
Tie &e gtingof thesub-
tiij would be a good thing, and perhaps it
raj-t be so.

, The public were greatlv interested in the bdl. j
reutions lor ana against it nad Peea brougnt '
... . .... - . ,
All seemed to arree that steam communi
cation was desirable the question therefore
was, were welikefy to have it withoutsubsidy,
We had one steamer, truly, but there is no
i regularity, and that was of great importance.
. If two steamers were put on, the packets woald
proUaNr te run on. Many of tne arguments j
against subsidy were equally strong against !
, steam. Many fancy pictures had been drawn j
' of the benents of steamers, though not able )
to subscribe to it all, yet he thourbt there were i
great advantage, to be derived from a steam i
i line. It was true that we were in the road of i
I travel n this ocean, aad it would be of great i
advantage to have our freight carried quick.
It was impossible to enumerate all the advan
tages, but that there was a great good to come
to the Islands by steam fines could not be dis
puted. Internal improvements was a domes
tie want and conld be attended to at any time,
but the steamers conld not be contracted with
at any time. In case tbe amount passed, the
government would not be bound to make the
contract, but wait until the subject of Reci
procity was decided.
H- H. W. C LnnaHlo objected to the pas
sage of the bHL We had a line guaranteed
to cs for the next tea years. Our money win
be given foolishly. He strongly supported the
arguments of the members for Hilo and Ko
hala. What was the use of paying for that
whicn we can nave witaont cost to ourselves.
Why should $50,600 be thrown away when it
was needed ia the country. He thought that
the Minister, were mistaken ia their support
or tne bin.
Mr. Hill-
Mr. Hitchcock said tr on account of the '
whole bill, he moved to indefinitelv postpene
the rrt seetien and tbe whole bill.
1 Mr. Rhodes said that, ia regard ta the bOl,
it was very clear that steam communication
was needed with San Francisco." Merchants
could not go into business and be sure cf the
remit, bo it was in this case. The benents
of a steamer line were undeniable. Steam, as
compared with sail, was in its infancy, but it
was working its way ever the whole world.
Its benefits were everywhere acknowledged,
and if we drove away steam, we should be
worse than madmen, bteaa, instead of injur
inr sails, helped them. He did not aeree
with the member from Huo. ra his remarks of ;
yesterday, entirely; no." with Mr. Bishop, to- j
day, that the steamezs would drive away the
packets. His impressioa was that, at the end
of two Tears, we should still see the two lines
running ia opposition, aad a decided benefit
would be derived by the necessary decrease of
rates of freight. This decrease would benefit
the agricultural interests cf the country. The
argument that we shonld soon be under a hard
monopoly was hardly Irne, for with s subsidy
they were bound ta tertaia conditions, Lai
without, they woald eome in and drive off" the
aailiag Tesselt by the force of theirreat eap-
ital. Without a subsidy, the Steam Company
could follow their own policy, but with our
subsidy they could not, and he loped that in
two years we should 'be rich enough to grant
Mr. Knudsen said that, looking at the bill
from a Hawaiian point of view, it was unfair.
He had given as much attention to the bill as
any one, and he thought that its passage would
not benefit the Islands generally. He did not
object to the bill because it was introduced by
the Ministry, but on account of its own merits.
We had had seven trips by the steamer com
pany, and by them we could judge of the ben
efits to be derived from sixteen trips. As far
as the merchants of Honolulu were concerned,
he thought that perhaps they would be bene
fitted, but it was unfair to pass it, because they
alone would be aided. He thought that those
who signed the petition for subsidy should
make up the sum themtelrcs, not bother the
people with it. There were many points in
favor and against the bill, but those who
loved the country would Tote against it.
Members of the Committee on Commerce were
blamed for voting to table the measure, but
they voted, according to their convi: lions.
Therefore he should not SRpport the bill.
Mr. de Varigny thought the argument of
the member for Waimea appealed to the feel
ings instead of t reason, because he said that
the bill was for the rich, sot for the poor.
He, 31 r. de V., could cot understand why the
bill should benefit Honolulu only. If Hono
lulu grew and became important, would not
the country, also? What he wanted was that
a place should be created where our produce
shall find a ready market. If Honolulu was
to be made such a place by the frequent coining
of the steamers, then the argument that Hon
olulu only would be aided, would fall to the
ground. As all know that the King's Minis
ters were never swayed by personal interest,
he would not take offense at the remarks of
the member for Waimea ; but he was proud to
count with the supporters of the bill the aged
father of the King, who for forty years had
always advocated progress.
Mr. Keawehunahala referred to the remarks :
of His Majesty, in the opening Speech, to aid
him in support of the bill. The granting of
the subsidy was not all Jikc throwing over
board so much money. Did not the members
remember the Scripture, Cast thy bread upon
the waters,' Ac? This bdl was like that.
The members were mistaken in supposing that
the subsidy would be paid out of the taxes.
According to the estimate, the receipts for the
next reriod would be over $750,000. which. ,
with the money now in the treasury, would
make over fSOO.OOO. Could not the the $50,000
subsidy be paid out of that? He thought it
J could. The appropriation for internal im
provements was about $3W,00. The expense
of Government was about $195,000, so that it
would be seen the Government gave a great
deal to improvements. It had been said that
the Islands occupied a central position, and
that Enes of steamers would stop here any
how. Who knew that? Has our past history
proved it?
Mr. A. x. Judd was sorry that the member
for Waialua had said that the members were 1
disloyal if they voted against the bill. It was j
not so. The King wished all to think and act
for themselves, and the Representatives were j
here to discharge their duty, according to their :
consciences and sound judgment. '
Mr. KalakaGa had been opposed to the bill 1
until the remarks of Mr. Bishop, that now he J
should support it.
His .x. II. Phillips, in closing the de-
bate, said that now te proposed to confine bun- i
sell to tne question Delore tne committee. At ;
was the wish of His Majesty's Government
to promote ocean steam navigation. For that
reason a biU had been brought in. The first
section bad been amended, and he hoped that
the amendments would pass. A motion had
been made by the member for Hilo to indefi
nitely postpone. This meant a refusal to con
sider the whole bOl. He should vote no, and
he hoped the Committee would Tote no also.
Pssing the motion would be denying aid to (

Committee voted for the motion of Mr. Hitch
cock, it would be saying no to all improvement
and advance. It was not the policy cf the
Islands. From the oldest time, it was the
pride of the chiefs and people to keep np with
the world. He wished by Legislation to make
the Island one of the great centres of the
Pacific, where new, would be received and be
distributed. This would keep the independ-
nc he Islands. e were constantly re-
minded that it was an age of progress, that
nt" Bne, of steam were being projected. The
t" hid passed when China and Japan could
shut out the world, if we wished to hold a
gwu Huoinj vciwic uie wunui ,c aim an
something to cphold ourselves. He would not
try now say bow much money would be
made or lost. It might be hat the contract
would not be closed with the C O. t JL Co.,
but with some other company. Tbe question
was, will the Legislature give tbe power to
make a eoatr jet- He thought that the Assem
bly ought to give the power, and not leave the
Government helpless far two years when pro
gress was tbe rule on this ocean.

Ht, Ex. F. W. Hrtchifsn objected. He
thought that Mr. Judd had no right ta make,
motion as he voted ia the niauiilj, on being
informed to the contrary he withdrew his ob
Mr. Keawehunhala was of opinion that the
question should not be reconsidered. It would
be childish and foolish. The n.otion was made
by the opposition, and probably because they
were vexed at being defeated. If they did
not believe they were in the minority they
could soon find out. He did not believe that
the motion was fur any good purpose, but from
personal motives. For that reason he objected
to any reconsideration
Mr. C. H. Judd thought it strange that the
member lor vt aialna should bring forward sueh
reasons. There were many reasons why the
questions should be reconsidered. He threw
back with scorn the assertion of personality.
As for himself he lost, as far as dollars and
cents were concerned, by his action la the mat
ter. It had been said that the Ministers were
the only ones to make laws for the land, but
when the Constitution was granted in IS CI the
.King gave the rights to the Uepresentatires in
making the laws. One of the members yes-
tcrday had voted cn the side of subsidy, be-
cause he thought it his duty as the Ministers
introduced the bill. Members had said that
they voted that sidu because the King, Minis
ters ana Ituers wcro in favor or it- lie wished
them to understand that they had as much
ngni in mating toe laws as any one.
.Mr. tvauKana said mat when the Lul was
brought forward he was opposed to it, but be
nad ensured bis mind when the auction hail
been so fully discussed. The opposition was
ready to ro int another luor debate, even
after shutting off discussion yesterday by their
resolution. 11 is mind was made up after long
and careful deliberation, and conld not be
changed. Not a bill had been brought forward
that bad been so thoroughly ventilated. If
anything new could be said npon it he would
oe in lavor el a reconsideration.
Mr. Xahatu wanted to know what reasons
could be adduced for reconsideration. Alt the
members had swom to do their duty and sup
port the Constitution, and they must respect
ueir oath.
Mr. Kalakaua had opposed the resolution
introduced to keep members from speakific,
and he thought that as the matter was decided
it had better be left alone.
His Ex. C. de Varigny did not yet see any
reason for reconsideration. He believed the
member who made the motien had voted with
the majority for this reason alone, but he had
spoken and argued against the majority sev
eral times. He considered the questisn as set
tled : tne members wno had voted in the ma
jority would rally around the question, and
carry it again
Mr. Lyons said he had the names of three
who had changed their minds, and he wished
to know what they really thonght, and what
side they really supported.
Mr. Nahaku said that in so important a
tiling as tnu, no one should go In the dark.
but all should see first and then vote, and in
sucn case no member would chance his vote.
Mr. Mahelona thought that too much time
had been spent in the thing; 'almost the entire
Househad spoken, but be had said nothing. If
the motion for reconsideration passed he should
say something. He voted with the majority
yesterday, but was in some doubt about it and
thought he should change his vote. Besides
be wished to propose some amendments and
so supported reconsideration. His amendment
would be somewhat as follows, that one-of the
two steamers should touch at Hilo and Lahaina
both ways, and the other at Uanalei and Koloa
both ways. In case teat amendment was ae-
cepted be thonght the bill should pass. The
Legislature and Government were anxious for
the good of the people, and would do all that
could be done for the nnhO; muiH. TTnT... iv.
steamers touched at other places than Bono-
lulu how could the out districts be benefitted,
He would also include the harbor, of Kaawa-
loa and Kawaihae in his amendment. If the
steamers touched at all these places, hethought
that they wpuld then be a blessing to the
whole islands and not Honolulu only. As for
the amount of subsidy he did not particularly
that was immaterial.

Mr. Lyon, introduced a resolution. Before
the resorztion, he said that ia the report of the
nreeedinr week, as riven bv trie Am Otin ,
speech had been printed exactly the opposite I
of what the speaker meant. The resolution I
would be. that the Government Press shonld
print exactly as the reporter furnished note,,
and not make any change. The change he
reierred to was inat m regard to annexation.
Said paper represented him as writing in favor
cf annexation. He had taken one of the best
pieces that hral been printed in the Am Oioa
against annexation, and had translated the
same and inserted it in the P. C JLdtatim.
He had worked as hard as the Government
-Press against annexation.
The' resolution was read: "That the Gov

ports of the legislative Session as given by
the reporter for the Government Press." Res
olution adopted.

Mr. Boyd in the Chair.
The amendment of II. H. TT. C. Lonalilo to in
sert the word " Priry " in the place of Cabi
net" was under discussion yesterday, and was
taaen up.
Mr. Una said that the bill nrorided for rir
inc $50,000 to foreign steamers, and that bonds
were to be issued by the jrernment,and after
a long time paw. inat would erentually re
sult in trouble to the government. Interest
was to be paid npon the bonds and they would
do a government debt, and so, alter a while,
the Ministers would demand interest upon
their salaries. The trouble would be that for
eigners would get the ascendency in the
Islands, and cause trouble to all the people.
I The benefits of the steam line had been stated,
1st, that the country would be honored bT
their coming here. 2d, that produce would
meet a ready sale.
II. H. W, C. LunalOo moved to pass the

Mr.Mahelona moved to amend by inserting
after the rate of per cent, the words "not
more than 9 per cent., or less than 6 per cent."

II. H. Lunalilo't amendment was put and
Mr. Pilipo showed by statistics how much
the subsray would cost- And he said that
there could be no doubt that the whole thing
would be a source of evil to the people. He
recapitulated thu various arguments that had
been adduced both for and against the bill,
andforcibly showed that it should not be pass
ed. One thing he said was, that although
large amounts of money might be given to the
Kiss and government officers, it was no rea
son lor throwing away a heavy sum like $50,
C00. If he had but one pair of shoes, should
he give them to his rich friend and go bare
footed? The money should be laid out upon
internal improvements, and he called npon the
members to support a rejection of the bill.
II. 11. i. V. Lunaluo called upon the
members to withdraw opposition to the bill.
Let it pass the second reading, and then reject
it npon the third reading.
Mr. -MkUa tnoucnt that the cases of the
King, Ministers, and the steamers were not
synonymous and should not be adduced. The
member for North Kona had evidently not
paid much attention to the facts in the case,
for if be had, he could not but see that we
should pay out one dollar and get back two.
He favored the passage of the second section
and the whole bill.
Mr. Hopu opposed the second section and
the whole bill. He thought the action of the
law would be to bind the country to a foreign
company for a long period. He said that
those sitting here at present would not have
to bear the burden of part of the money, but
the descendants of the present generation.
lie bad failed to see any reason vet wbT the
subsidy should be passed. If it conld be
shown that the benefits to the country by the
steamers for two years would equal the cood
that might be done with the large amount of
money to be paid 1n twenty-five years, then
he would vote for the passage of the MIL He
had heard that the votes of members could be
bought, and he was afraid that if the bill pass
ed, the House would be branded as worthless
money-seekers. The only way that such an
imputation could be escaped would be to vote

A bill to provided for a permanent settle

the action of the House on the Subsidy, and
he hoped all wonld rote against bis motion.
Jar. A. x. Judd wa, glad tost such sharp
practice should be introduced by the other
side, so that they might bear the criticism of
tbe new method at the time of the motion to
indefinitely postpone the report of the Com
mittee on Commerce, which was passed by a
vote of 24 to 11, if that mode of practice had
been introduced, the House would hare been
saved this long discussion.
sir. liitcncock asked if amendment, could
be introduced upon the third readine. Chair
ruled that they could.
Motion to reconsider was lost.
H. H. Lunalilo moved a Committee of the
Whole on the bill for Qneen Kalama's settle
ment. Motion lost.
Mr. C. H. Judd said that tbe Committee.
when they had risen before, had asked pennis-
"c which was granted, and be bad a few
things to say npon tho matter. Therefore he
moved again that the House go into Committee,
which was carried.
Mr.' Mahelona called to" the chair.
Mr. C. H. Judd said that Queea Kalama
had received her dower from the Crown Lands
besides $2,000 out of tho Government funds.
He had a copy of part of the will of His Ma
jesty, in which some lands were granted to
ter. che refused to receive those lands be
cause she had a right to other land, fixed npon
her at the time of her marriage with theKinr.
$2,(4)0 a year was granted to her by Kameha
meha IV. in lien of the lands which abe wish
ed. Some of thoee lands were left her by her
father, and some by Haalfleo. As the subject
was a disputed one, he thouzht it would be
right for the House ia consideration of ber
waiving all rights of dower, to fix upon her a
permanent settlement. It had been said that
she received an income from the Wakahalnla
tots, but they were sold.
The question was asked, who sold them?
Mr. Judd annrered that he did not wish oe
teS, but if the sisters wished, the conld.
Therefore he . rted giving her as endow
ment of $40C year, if she would give up
tne right or dower m me unnrn lan (fa, sot
those Tested npon her at she time cf her aur-
H. H. W. C. LssaJiw said be did sot ask for
$8,000 or $4,000, but for a jut consideration of
her claims, bhe accepted or the 93,1100 by
force. She was shut up from morn tew till
night, until she was fain to accept. Now bo
was in favor of the House granting a Jut set
tlement upon her, her position was as high as
that of Queen Emma.
Mr. Pilipo favored the bill with an amend
ment. He thought it right to assls t her. Ha
reviewed the life of KameLameha III. From
him came the Constitution with all iU bless-
incs. It was he that granted to the people
the right to help make the law,, and to hare
a voice in the general government. Before
him we had no rights in the lands, nor did the
chiefs, but he fixed in them certain right,,
that helped to build up the nation, by giving
them manliness and self respect. Why was it
that this House might refuse to grant her aid
when aformer Honso had an liberally' assisted
Queen Emma?
Mr. Koakanu said if sho was anything, she
was prior in importance to Queen Emma. Ac
cording to hi, manao, tho oldest Queen should
have tho largest dower. If she was not granted
a good, large allowance, he objected to doing
anything about it.- He supported the amend
meat to $4,000.
Mr. halakaua was oppssed to tho amend
ment, and supported tbe original bill. Al to
the lands in Koolaupoko, they were all from
the King ; so were almost all the other, men
tioned as ber own, by the member from Koo
laupoko. It would be a little too much if we
were to grant her all that sum, besides what
she made out of her land,.
Mr. Koakanu thought that Mf. Kalakaua
was much mistaken in his remarks.
Mr. Bishop was glad to hare heard so much
of the Good Kamehameha III. He did not
think there was much danger of his Queen be
ing neglected. In the King's will valuable land,
had been given to her, if she would waive
claim to her dower. It was optional with her.
She choose to keep the land, and some of it had
been sold, and now she conld not or would
not return the value of tho land,. She was
not satisfied, with her lands and complained to
Kamehameha IV . the lloyal instate wa, in
debt at that time, and the settlement of $2,000
was not illiberal at the time. It wa, asserted
that at that timo she waived all right to dow
er, and besides, aha received $2,000 a year out
of the lands remaining to ber, and it was pro
posed to make a settlement of $2,000 more.
There wa, no question but what she was pro
perly supported.
Committee rose, report' approved, and the
House adjourned.
