OEDEB OF THE DAY. Third reading of an Act to amend sec tion 218 of the Civil Code, relating to prisons, jails and houses of correction. On motion of Mr. Richardson, the bill passed. Third reading of an Act to amend sec tion 409 of the Civil Code, relating to dead letters. On motion of Mr. Paehaole, the bill passed. FINES AND COSTS BILL. Third reading of an Act to amend chap ter 16 of the Laws of 1870, being an Act en titled an Act amending the statutes con cerning the satisfaction of fines and costs in penal judgments. Mr. Kaulukou said the House must bear in mind that this amendment will increase the expense of keeping prisoners. On motion of Mr. Richardson, the bill passed. MILITARY AND NAVAL FORCES BILL. Mr. Kaulukou, on suspension of the rules, moved that a bill to reorganize the military and naval forces of the Kingdom be taken from the table and placed among the special orders of the da-. Agreed to. PENSION FOR DANIEL NAPELA. Mr. Paehaole, on suspension of the rules, moved that a bill to provide a permanent settlement for Daniel Napela be taken from the table and placed on the special order of the day. Mr. Kaunamano moved that it be placed at the head of the list. Agreed to. Second reading of an Act to provide a permanent settlement for Daniel Napela. Mr. Paehaole moved the bill pass to en grossment. Mr. Kaunamano said the House should know something about this pension, and why it should be granted. Mr. Kalua said that Napela was quite aged and well known. He had been a school teacher for upwards of thirty years. Mr. Aholo said that Napela commenced to teach school in 115. He had continued to teach ur.til quite recently. As the Ha waiian schools were being done away with, and he was not able to teach English, it had thrown him out of occupation. Some people get their pensions b- influence, but he thought Napela had fairly earned one. Mr. Kaunaniyno said the explanation was very good, but he could bring in an old school teacher who commenced teaching in 133G. He thought they had better pass the bill. Mr. Richardson said if they commenced to give these old school teachers pensions they would not know where to stop. He moved the ayes and noes be taken. Agreed to. Mr. Castle moved the bill be laid upon the table. The motion to lay on the table was car ried on a division by the following vote: Ayes Creighton, Dare, Dominis, Cleg horn, Wilder, Bu.-di, Martin, Parker, Kau hi, Wight, Nahinu, Richardson, Castle, Kauai, Palohau- 15. Noes Hayselden, Keau. Lilikalani, Baker, Amara, Kaulia, Pahia, Nahale, Kalua, Aholo, Kaukau, Kaai, Paehaole l.'i. ELECTION BILL. Second reading of an Act to amend sec tion 5, of an Act approved on the 31st day of December, A. D. 1861, relating to elec tions. Mr. Castle moved the bill be indefinitely postponed, as it amended a repealed law. The motion prevailed. I'.SPETOItS OF ELECTION BILL. Second reading of an Act to amend the law relative to Boards of Inspectors of Elections. Mr. Richardson moved that the bill be laid upon the table, for the reason that the House passed a bill on Wednesday to cover the ground. The bill. was laid upon the table. THE SUPREME COL'RT. Mr. Keau, on suspension of the rules, presented the following resolution: Whereas, There is now in the hands of a select committee of the Assembly a bill for the re-organization of the Supreme Court, and whereas, said bill is second to none in importance, be it Resolved, That the committee be re quested to report back the bill at once. Mr. Brown said he was a member of the committee. A report had been prepared and was in the hands of Hie translator. The resolution was adopted. Mr. Kaulukou moved that the rules be suspended so that two members of the committee could present a report. Mr. Brown said he did not like that way of doing business. The other members should see the report. He liked to be treated with a little courtesy, and not like a dog. His Excellency Mr. Dare said no dis courtesy was intended to Mr. Brown. He thought the resolution a proper one. Hon. Mr. Bishop said nothing would be gained by bringing in the report now. It was taking advantage of the absence of the chairman. Mr. Kaulukou asked the Hon. Mr. Bishop whether the chairman of the com mittee (Mr. Dole) had a right to absent himself without leave. Hon. Mr. Bishop said lie should have asked for permission to be absent. The motion to suspend the rules pre vailed and Mr. Kaulukou presented the following report : Hon. J. S. Walker, President Legislative Assembly Sir: A minority of your com mittee, to whom was referred an Act re lating to the Supreme Court, and provid ing for the appointment of two additional Justices, having considered the same, beg leave to submit the following report: We deem it expedient and necessary that the Supreme Court should consist of a Chief Justice and not less than four Associate Justices, and that the Legisla tive Assembly now in session should pro vide for the appointment of two additional Justices, and define their salaries and duties. John T. Dare, J. L. Kaulukou. Mr. Brown moved the report be re turned to the committee, and they report on all matters pertaining to the Supreme Court, and not this alone. Mr. Kaulukou said the committee in tended to present a separate report. Mr. Keau moved the report be laid upon the table until the other reports came in. Agreed to. TARO FLOUR BILL. Second reading of an Act to encourage the manufacture and exportation of taro flour. The bill provides that the Alden Fruit and Taro Company be paid $20 for each ton of taro flour manufactured, for the term of ten years. The report of the committee on the bill was read. The committee recopimend that the sum of $2,500 be paid the Alden Fruit and Taro Company as a sole and final gratuity, provided they effect a bona fide sale of one hundred tons in a foreign market. Mr. Kaulukou moved the bill be con sidered section by section. Agreed to. The first section was read. Mr. Kaulukou moved the bill pass, with the amendment that the words "term of ten years" read "term of five years." He said the company had a manufactory at Wailuku, and had expended about $35,000. If the company could get a sale in a for eign market, it would develop the cultiva tion of taro to a great extent. It would cost a great deal to introduce it into a foreign market. Mr. Keau moved the bill be indefinitely postponed. He could not see any reason why they should pass the bill. Evidently the Alden Company cast longing eyes on the Treasury, and wanted to get $20 a ton (or their taro flour, not caring anything about industry. Mr. Thurston said he was not in favor of the bill, but the principle. It was sound policy to increase the exports, as they are the life of the country. If they want money in the country, they must export. Anyone increasing the exports not only benefitted himself, but the country. The Alden Company at present buy nearly all the taro they use from the natives. Mr. Keau's opposition to the biHwas because he thinks it will affect his poi business. But it will not do that; it will help him. He was in favor of the principle of the bill, so as to get the article into a foreign market. He moved the period should be amended to read three years. Mr. Kaulukou accepted the amendment. Mr. Palohau said he was in favor of the bill. The motion to indefinitely postpone the bill was lost. The amendment fixing the period at three years was passed. On motion of Mr. Kalua, the section passed as amended. Section 2, fixing the time of the Act i going into eiTcct. was passed. j The title and enacting clause were passed. j The bill passed to engrossment and will j be read a third time on Saturday. I At 12 :03 the House adjourned to 1 o'clock Afternoon Session. The House reassembled at 1:13. HAWAIIAN BOA ED OF HEALTH BILL. Consideration of an Act to regulate the Hawaiian Board of Health. Mr. Palohau moved to amend section 4 so as it will read as follows: Section 4. The Minister of the Interior shall grant on the order of said Board a li cense to auv applicant who has received a certificate of his qualification to practice medicine in any kind of disease, upon re ceiving twentv dollars. The amendment carried and the section passed as amended. On motion of Mr. Kaunamano the bill passed to engrossment as amende!, and will be read a third time on Tuesday. THE CHAS. B. WILSON RELIEF BILL. Second reading of an Act to relieve Chas. B. Wilson, Superintendent of the Water Works. The bill states that certain large amounts of moneys in the possession of Chas. B Wilson, Superintendent of Waterworks, to-wit: the sum of $9,569, have become deficit, and that said Superintendent has made himself liable for the repayment of t lie amount. It asks for Mr. Wilson and his sureties to be relieved from all resjon- sibility as to any moneys heretofore re ferred in connection with the Water Works. Mr. Castle moved the bill and report of the committee be laid ujon the table. He said the Judiciary Committee in their report found the office conducted in a most disgraceful manner, showing that the Su perintendent was responsible for the loss. He did not understand the ins and outs of the matter. As yet the Ministers had made no recommendation with regard to the bill. He thought the Minister of the Interior should state whether he favored the passage of the bill or not. The motion to lay upon the table was carried by a rising vote of 16 to 12. FISH MARKET STALLS BILL. Second reading of an Act to amend sec tion 198 of the Civil Code, and to the stalls and stands .;t the Fish Market. Mr. Thurston asked the introducer (Mr. Keau) to state the object of his bill. Mr. Keau said the object of the bill was that all persons who had in the year pre ceding leased the stalls of the markets, should be preferred to other persons in leasing the same again, and that the an nual rent should be $110 for each stall. Mr. Kaai moved the bill be laid upon the table. Lost. Mr. Castle moved the bill be referred to the Committee on Commerce. His Excellency Mr. Creighton seconded the motion, as he thought it was proper to refer it to a committee. The bill was referred to the Commutee on Commerce. THE KEEPING OF ACCOUNTS BILL. Second reading of an Act to provide for the keeping of accounts in English and Hawaiian. , Mr. Castle moved the bill be laid upon the table, as the introducer was absent. IMMIGRATION OF CHINAMEN-. His Excellency Mr. Creighton moved that the rules be suspended in order that the bill regulating the immigration of Chinamen be read a second time by title. Mr. Castle said the bill was in the hands of the Committee on Commerce. His Excellency Mr. Creighton moved that the Committee on Commerce be in structed to report forthwith. The bill was an important one and for the well-being of the country. The President stated there was not a quorum of members present. Mr. Aholo announced a meeting for 9 o'clock Friday morning of the Committee on His Majesty's birthday. Mr. Kaulukou moved the House ad journ. Mr. Thurston protested against such a motion. Mr. Kaunamano said if they adjourned at this early hour, it would be a lesson to the absent members. At 2:20 the House adjourned to 9:S0 o'clock Friday morning. The .Soy Yung: Shooting- Case. The somewhat sensational case in which a Chinaman named Soy Yung was charged with assaulting Mr. Victor Fagerroos with a pistol at Smith's bridge, on the 18th instant, was heard at the Police Court yesterday afternoon, and engaged the attention of Police Jus tice Bickerton until eight o'clock in the evening. A mass of evidence was re corded, but the main facts of the case, as represented therein, do not materially differ from the account -which has already appeared in these columns. That for the defense sought to establish an alibi. The Hon. Paul Neumann rep resented the defendant, and argued on behalf of his client for about twenty minutes, doing so in full evening dress. This, if we mistake not, is the first occa sion in the annals of the local Court in which a counsel has appeared so attired. The Court was thronged and the de cision was reserved until Mondav next. The Queen's Own. On Wednesday evening last, at the Armory, the Queen's Own regiment, under command of Captain Mahaulu, were drilled in bayonet exercise, march ing and manuel of arms, a large at tendance of spectators being present. This afternoon they will engage in bat tery practice at the shore battery, Ka kaako. A Xarrow Kscape. Yesterday afternoon a little girl, a daughter of Mr. Pratt, who keeps the Oceanic Restaurant on Fort street, fell from the upper veranda to the ground, a distance of some fifteen or sixteen feet, but fortunately escaped any serious in jury.

CASTER. During the evening a deputation from the Chamber of Commerce requested an interview with His Excellency Mr. Carter. WhereujKn the Hon. Chas. R. Bishop said : Mr. C:,rter: You have been a long time absent from us, engaged in the im portant service imposed ujon .you by His Majesty the King, and the opportu nities for kindly greetings during your short visit here have been very pleasant to your many friends. The importance of the interests which have been and are committed to your care attracts the attention of all classes of this community to yourself for they concern all and throws upon you a re sponsibility which mast at times have caused you great anxiety. In representing the Hawaiian Govern ment at Washington, you have not only the honor of a high position, but j-ou have at the same time the satisfaction of knowing that you are treating with a Government whose successive adminis trations have all been friendly and gen erously disposed toward the Hawaiian .Kings and people ; and that you repre sent a nation which appreciates and re ciprocates that friendship, and whicii hopes that by a frank and honest presen tation of all questions of mutual concern, the intimate and advantageous relations now existing will be perpetuated. The consciousness of duty faithfully done, and of successful effort are, no doubt, your best reward, but your friends feel that they ought not to let 3'ou go away again without expressing in some degree their appreciation of the able and prudent manner in which you have represented the interests of this country in Washington, and so, on be half of the Honolulu Chamber of Com merce, I am requested to give utterance to such expressions, and to tell you that, as a slight token of their regard, pro vision has been made for a service of silver, which will be sent to yon from New York. And further, on their be half and my own, I wish you a safe and pleasant journey on your return, a con tinuance of success in the service of your King and country, and health and prosperity to yourself and fairiily. His Excellency Mr. Carter said he thanked them very much for their kind expressions of approval and regard, and especially for their recognition of his ef forts on behalf of this nation. Wherever he went he always found the most friendly feeling towards Hawaii. He had strong hopes of the present commer cial relations with the United States being jerpetuated. He would endeavor to use his best efforts in the future, as he had done in the past, for Hawaii. He was glad to know that his action as rep resentive of the Government had met with the approval of His Majesty the King, His Majesty's Ministers, and the body which he (Mr. Bishop) represented. It was peculiarly gratifying to him that the Chamber of Commerce had deputed a gentleman to make this presentation, who was so well known in the financial and commercial world, and with whom he had been on terms of friendly relations so many years. He thanked them for their good wishes and accepted the ser vice with pleasure and emotion. It would he gratifying to his family, who had shared with him in the discharge of the social duties imposed upon him as the Envoy of His Hawaiian Majesty at Washington. He wished them all the greatest measure of prosperity in the business affairs of the nation. After the presentation His Excellency Mr. Carter was the recipient of many agreeable personal compliments upon the event. The party enjoyed them selves in social intercourse in the rooms and the spacious verandas till 10 o'clock, when the guests began to take their de parture with a unanimous expressiou that they had spent a most enjoyable evening. Light refreshments were served during the evening. The annual meeting of the United Chi nese Society was held on the lsth, when the ofiicers for the ensuing year were elected.
