under the provbioos of this treaty from
the litis of December, whereas the treaty
which zoade it rood was not signed until
March, lSb(X bnppoee there had been a
diaereoce between tee contracting powers
aad the treaty has set been signed at all,
where would they have been And he
asked where are they now that this treaty
has not the effect or power of the law nn
til it is passed. Suppose the treaty had
beenin existence all that time, so far as
he could see. there having been no session
of the Hawaiian Legislature, they received
their aothontv from the Japanese GoTern
meet And to-day they were asking the
Japanese Government as if they were its
asents, to make this change. It is said if
tins clause goes into effect we would give
back this money How would we give it
back if there no appropriation for it ! The
Attorney-General says that if they had
not been bound to do it. it would not have
been done. Who bound them to do it un
le&s the Japanese Government ? It seemed
to him an nsdignined petition for any
Government to take in the face of another
Government He felt that the Ministry
had acted in this ca?e for the public rood.
Japanese irasiiirrants had been a benefit to
use country, tie commended them for
their public spirit But no benefit of that
kind could make up for the loss which the
coentry receives whan the dignity and
supremacy of our own laws are set aside.
It must nave been a necessity for the
Government to have this moner, other-
they would have been behind about
fJjKO on the 31st of March. The Govern
ment had been reckless. At the same time
be should vote for this $3,000 as a matter
of national honor.
Bepresentative Castle said he asked a
number of questions the other day and
naa leoaerea cis assistance to the Govern'
dent, but he could not cvt the inform
he desired. Tha Attorney General had
presented no arguments" regarding the
jegaiwy or cmerwise Ol me course pur
sued, yet a treaty had been made materi-
fillv filtftrih" thf Tnwv: rtf Vlnrnm
and it had not yet been submitted. He
am not consider lor an instant that the
Attorney General did not know all about
laws, yet what did he mean by saying that
treaty had the orce of the law, and that
this Assembly was hound to carry it out ?
It was the duty of this Assembly to guard

it was- foolish for tfc? Opposition to say
the Government was acting as a bock, but
the Minister of Interior said that was just
what the Government had been 'doing.
They (the Opposition) would cot call it a
bank, but something in the shape of a
a bank. So far as he could see the trearv
was good, bat why it should be "kept from
the Assembly he did cot understand. The
fact of the matter was the consideration
of the Appropriation Bill at ' stage of
the session was rather premature. Every
attempt made to postpone it seeaied to

Tbe Minister of Foreign Affairs in an
swer to a resolution offered bj- Bcprespnt
stive Dole at a previous session and ap
proved by the Assembly read tho follow
ing reply :
Mr. President A resolution of the
House, introduced by Mr. Dole, requests
me to explain the reasons for the dismissal
of the Hawaiian Consul at Brussels. The
resolution refers, I suppose, to the lato
Consul General for Belginm. 1 beg to
express my objection to such inquiry. If
it were based upon a petition of the party
aggrieved, seeking redress for alleged
grievances in connection with dismissal
from office, there would be a proper mo
tive for the inquiry ; but when no ground
of complaint is set forth, and inquiry is
prompted merely to gratify some one's
dtsira to pry into an official transaction,
no public interest is subserved thereby.
My feeling as to the undeservabilitr of
meproceedinc is intensified bv the facts
that the gentleman referred to in the
above resolution resides in a far distant
city ; ho can have no cognizance, tor a
long time to come, ol an inquiry anecting
him. and cannot be heard in his own be

able temperament to fill the position ho
held, and that he indulged ia strong per
sonal antagoniun to persons engaged in
developing "the very slender trade that has
hitherto been carried on between Belgium
and Hawaii. From his own letters, and
from the public press of Brussels, I also
learned that he had deviated from the
course implicitly laid down in tho general
Consular instructions that His Majesty's
Consuls, must scrupulously abstain from
all interference in the internal affairs of
the country where he resides. Xow, this
gentleman pecamo an nettvo and ,-tror.gly
pronounced partisan in the municipal no
titles of Brussels. Ilis course seemed to
me to be calculated to compromise the po
sition of Hawaii in the opinion of a friend
ly state, and I deemed it ray duty to re
quest turn to tender lus resignation."
Bepresentative Dole considered tho nn
swer very satisfactory and full; ho moved
that tlicreportof tho Minister be accepted.
He was very sorry however, to hear the
preamble, as the words were, to his mind,
a very impertinent statoment to mako to
the Assembly. Such a question as theone
propounded to the Minister, was always
answered in a polite and complete manner
oy the members ot the i.agtish Cabinet,
the Parliamentary practice of which Par
liament vras followed by this Assembly,
especially when those questions related to
the reasons for the dismissal ot trusted
public officials. Ho was urprised that any
ofiicerof His Majesty's Go ernment should
so display his ignorance of his position as
to produce ana read such a preamble, uon
siuered that the first portion ot the reply
was unfitting the dignity of the position
held by the Minister and was impertinent
to tho Assembly.
The Minister of Foreign Affairs denied
any intent to bo impertinent, the preamblo
was necessary as a protest to the resolu
tion, as the rules of the House forbade the
introduction of anything of a personal
character, yet the resolution was of that
Bepresentative Dole (interrupting),
would ask what rule of the House the Min
ister referred to.
The Minister of Foreign Affairs (smil
ing) stated that he was not referring to
to any particular rule ot the House, only
in general terms. (Laughter.)
The reply as presented was accepted
and laid on the table.
Representative Dole, from tho Select
Committee, to whom had been referred
the consideration of the salaries of the
Assistant Storekeeper, Keeper Steamer
Warehouse, and Third Statistical Clerk
presented a report favoring the item of

The executMs and executrix have pre
sented their accounts which shows a
balance of cash on hand of $1,175.64. This
was derived from certain insurance poll
cies on the lifo of the decedent, and they
are devised to the widow in tho will
Messrs M. S. Orinbanm .t t)o who are
the agents nnd largo creditors of the Hana
1'iantauon, a controlling interest in v. men
as partner tho decedent owned, move
the Court that this balance be paid over
to tho Beceiver of tho Plantation.
This is resisted by the executors on tbe
ground that M. S. Grinbanm & Oo. have
not filed their claims against estate of de
cedent with the executors within the
statutory period ot six months and as this
claim is against the plantation, which was
iwutui'rsiiip juvpetty, vuis must w ex
hausted before the creditors can call upon
the individual estate of tho decedent for
Counsel for M. S. Griubaum t Co. con
tend that the estate of the decedent was
partly private cstaio and partly an in
terest iu the partnership, anil the will in
structs the executors to continue the part
nership business nntil July, 1SS7.
On a bill in equity to wind up the part
nership, by h surviving partner, Oscar
Unna, m which proceeding the executors
were parties defendant, a Beech er was
was appointed on the Sth August, ISS5,
before the six monthV notice of tho execu
tors to creditors had expired, and in tho
order appointing a Beceiver, he was in
structed to marshal the assets ot the part
nersliip and of the individual property,
and the partnership assets of tho decedent
were ordered to be delivered by the
executors to tho Receiver. The order
allowed a certain sum to be raid monthly
to the widow for her support out of tho
partnership property (tho Plantation) nnd
the whole proceeding contemplated a set
tlemeut by tho two estates together.
By tux Cocbt- 1 think the proceeding
in equity for the sppoiutnient of the Be
ceiver gave ample notice to tho executors
ot tho oxistenco of tho claims of M. S.
Grinbanm .V Co. Theso are stated in tho
will and admitted by the answer of the
Tho rule used to bo that un tho death of
a partner joint debts vere to bo satisfied
out of the joint estato ; but if that was in
sufficient, then, subject to the claims of
their soparato creditors out of their
separate estates proportionally ; and if
anyot them were insolvent, then outot
tho remaining estates proportionally.
But savs Collyer on Partnership, See,
5S0, " It is now established bovond con
troversy that in tho consideration ot
Courts of hquity a artnorliip debt is
several as "well ns joint, and that Upon
the death of ti partner, tho joint creditor
uas a ri&ub iu equuy 10 pivcivu imme
diately against tho representative of
a deceased partner for payment of his
separate estate, "without reference to
the question whether tho joint estato is
solvent or insolvent, or to tho stato of tho
accounts amongst tho partners."
Story on Partnership Sec. 3G2 is to tho
same effect. "It is now held that in
equity all partnership debts arc to be
deemed joint and several ; and conse
quently tho joint creditors have in all
cases a right to proceed at law. against the
survivors and an election also "to proceed
in equity against the estate ot tho de
ceased partner, whether the survivor be
insolvent or bankrupt or not The con
sequence is that tho joint creditors need
not now wait until tho partnership affairs
are wound up, and a final adjustment
thereof is niade. But they may at once
proceed, as upon a joint and several con
tract, in equity, against tho estate of the
deceased partner." Sec. 3 Kent's Com. 63.
I think the right of M.S. Grinbanm i
Co. to proceed against the oxecutors for
their debt is clear. But this is not tho
proceeding before me which is the mere
settlinc of tho executors' accounts.
But 1 think M. S. Grinbanm A; Co. have
a right to ask that tho executors lva not
discharged and no distribution of tho in
dividual assets be made until tbe Beceiver
has wound np the partnership. On tho
winding up the Receiver will have to take
an account of what has been advanced to
the widow from the partnership assets.
This may not bo for some time yet, and
tho fund may not bo required.
I order that the execntors' account be
approved and that they invest the balance
of money as by their account in somo safe
seenrity, to be approved by tho Court, to
bo subject to the further order of tho
