lowing is a translation:
Sir My Brother- I hasten to inform Your
Majesty that Providence has heard my prayers
and those of Spain, Hiving me the happiness of
having given birth, on Monday the 17th instant,
at half past twelve, noon, a Prince who was on
Saturday the 2'2ud of this month baptized at the
Chapel of the Royal Palace at Madrid with the
names Alfonso Leoa Fernando Maria Santiago
Isidro Pascual Anton Tlie uew -boiu Prince had
for godfather His Holiness the Sovereign Pontifl
Leo XIII and as godmother Her Royal Highness
the Infanta of sp:iiu. Dou.i Maria Isabel, my
well-beloved :dster-i n-law, and iu the terms of
Articles 00 and ii of the" Cou.-tauiioa of the
Kingdom, has been proclaimed King of Spiu,
under the name of Alphonso XIII. The evidences
of friendship and sympathy which Your Majesty
Las not ceased continually to give me, are to me
aure guarantees as to the feeling with widen he
will hear of this happy event, which interests
equally the prosperity of Spai ii ami that of my
Royal Family, and which alone could in p.ut
assuae the painful sorrow- which the death of
my regretted and well beloved consort the King
Alphonso XII has left forever in my heart. 1
hope that Yo'ur Majesty will be so good as to ac
cord to the new' reign th same sentiments of
affection which he gave to the past one and to
the Regency, surrounding the young King with
his prized friendship. On my part I rray Your
Majesty to believe in the sincere vows that I
form for his happiness and for the prosperity of
his State, and am pleased to renew to him the

THE TAX KILL. f
Mr. Hayselden presented the following J
11- . . I. .... r.owo.t m-
oiir.KtAs, -v teso.uiioo
this honorable Assembly on September 3
lss;, that no new bills were to be brought
in after .September tith. and whereas it has
been brought to the notice of this honor
able Assembly that it is desirable that an
important amendment be made to the
present Tax Law, and whereas smh
amendment can not be made without the
introduction of a .special Act for that pur
pose, therefore be it
F.esolved, That leave is hereby granted
unto Fred H. Havstlden, member for
Honolulu, to introduce an Act for the pur- j
pose of amending sections l'i and 1". of ,
chapter 43, of the Session Laws of 1 j
Mr. Thurston said he did not see how j
the object could be obtained under the !
rules of the House. The Hou-e decided J
some time ago by a resolution not to take ;
up any new business. It was not recm- j
si-lered. therefore was final. The intro- J
duction of this resolution was -imply an J
attempt to whip the devil round the stump. :
It was simply seeking to evade a re-olu- ;
ti--n oi" the Hou-e brought in and pa-sed. !
Mr. Hayselden said a majority ruled the .
Hou-e; nothing could be done without a I
majority. He hoped to have this resolu- j
tion pa'se-I by a majority. The rules of
the House were broken yesterday when j
Mr. Aho! moved the House adjourn to 10 j
o'clock Tuesday morning instead of
o'clock, as ordered by the adoption of aj
resolution. He a-ked the Hou-e t pass j
Mr. Thurston -aid that Mr. Hayselden
seemed to think nothing could be done ;
without a majority. A resolution or bill j
could be passed by a majority, but there j
are a great many things a majority cannot j
1 . They connot prevent the ayes and j
noes being taken or the reconsideration of i
a bill. A majority cannot over-ride the j
rules of the Hou-e. ;
The President aid that Mr. Hay -el-len
wa- right in saying that the rules of the '
House had been disregarded. It seemed
to him that the resolution passe-1 some :
time ago that no new matter be ir.tro-
duced. took the form of a rule of the -House.
It would take a two-third- vote t-
a loptthis resolution.
Mr. Hayselden said he would like to j
have the opinion of members older than;
himself. Mr. Aholo might give hi- views. ,
lie did not want to take any exepti-m to ;
to the ruling of the Chair.
Mr. Thur-ton said the Chair had given a
rulins and there could be no discu--ion. as :
there was nothing before the IL-u-e.
Mr. Hayselden moved the resolution be ;
Mr. Thur-ton moved it be indefinitely ;
j o-tponed. The resolution seek- to intro- ;
duce a bill to raise taxation fr-m ?4' l 1
percent. That i an addition of 3-v.l:, per
cent to the pre-e.nt taxes. I: was utiju-ti- .

nothing belote the Hou-e. They could j

Mr. Hayselden -aid lie did not expect
any courte-y from that -i-le of the Ilon-e.

Mr. llay-el-len .-aid the re-o!ution did

The Pre-i-ient in-truete-1 tin
! to read the re-ohition again.
This being done, the President said he
was mistaken about the resolution, and
ruled that Mr. Thur-ton's remarks on the
bill were out of order.
Mr. Thur-ton said he had a right to talk
on the hill.
The President said he imi-t confine him
self to the resolution.
Mr. Thur-ton, continuing, -aid that the
taxpayer-could n-'t al'ord to pay this in
Mr. Hay-el. leu .-aid Mr. Thurston
should confine him-elf to the resolution,
or e e appeal from the ruling of the Chair.
Mr. Aholo thought the discussion would
be more in order when the bill was before
the House. They had heard that planta
tions were going into bankruptcy. That
was one side of the "pie-non; but there
wa. another side t- be heard from. How
was it that at the end of each month or
quarter these plantations were paying
large dividends? A law had pa.-sed for free
education, and the loss from tuition fees
must be made up. There is one member
of the Assembly, a large property owner,
who is quite willing taxation should be
raised even to l'i per cent. He moveii
the previous question.
Mr. Hayselden said he was quite pre
pared to give his views why the increase
should be made, but thought the proper
time would be when the bill came up He
should therefore reserve his remarks.
The previous question carried.
Mr. Thur-ton moved the ayes and noes
be taken. Agreed to.
The President said it would require a
majority to indefinitely po.-tpone the reso
lution, and a two-thirds vote to pass it.
Mr. Thur-ton withdrew his motion for j
indefinite postponement. j
The Pre-ident said it would require j
twenty votes to pa-s the resolution.
The resolution was pas-ed on a division
!v the following vote :
Creighton, Hare, lUish
Kaae. Parker. Hayselden, Keau. Lilika

Mr. Dole propounded the following question-
to the Mini-terof the Interior:
1. To what judicial circuit doe Ocean

2. Also, to what electoral district does
the said i-land belong?
3. Also, to what taxation di-trict does
the said island belong?
Hi.- lixcelleney Mr. db-on -aid that in
view of thi- being a new acquisition to

bring in a bill to settle the points involved
in the questions. When that wa- done he
would an-wer them.

Agreed to. J
The Secretary then read the bill and tbe j
reports t hereon. j
Mr. Kaulukou moved the bill be con- !
sidered section by section. Agreed to. i
section I. The Supreme Court -had con- --i-t
of a Chief Justice an-l four Associate '
Justices, any of whom may hold the 'ourt.
and when so held shall have and exercise
all the powers and jnri-dietion committed
to said Court.
Mr. Kaulukou moved the section pas.-.
Mr. Thur-ton -ai-l he was -orry Mr.
Dole wa- not present, as he had a report
to lay before the House. The question
was a delicate one. There were three
schemes bet ore the House, ami he thought
that Mr. Dole'.- was the be-t. It propo-ed
to constitute an -Appeal c on ri , consisting i
in Appeal t ourt, consisting
of three Judges, and to add two other
Justices to attend to Chamber work. In j
ca-e of an appeal it would be heard before j
an entirely new Court. He was decidedly
in favor ( a change in the supreme Court.
It was not the fault of the men, but the
system. There had never been a suspicion
as to the integrity of the present J ustices.
The fault was with the .system, as it al
lowed a Judge to sit on an appeal ca-e he
had already heard. The amendment of
fered by Mr. Kaulukou would not bring
about the change desired.
Mr. Dole, who entered the Hou-e while
Mr. Thurston was speaking, then read the
following report :
Hon. J. S. Walker. President Legislative
Assembly Sir: Your special committee
appointed to consider a certain bill, en
titled "An Act to provide for the appoint
ment of five Judge for the Supreme
Court." introduced by Hon. J. L. Kaulu
kou. respectfully report as follows: The
bill in question is imperfect, in enacting n
radical change in our Judicial system
without furnishing the provisions for
making such a change etfective, and ii
pa-sed, would re.-ult in the residence upon
the other islands of two sets of Judges,
to-wit: Judges of the Supreme Court and
Circuit Judges, of different rank and
powers, and yet with equal jurisdiction in
matter appertaining to writs of habeas
corpus, dower, partition of real estate, af
filiation of ba-taids. adoption of children,
and to probate of" will and appointment
an-l di-charge of admini-trator- and guar
dians. This state of things, your commit
tee think, would re-ult in conm-ion an-l
conflict of authority, and oilers no public
benefit to overbalance the inconvenience.
Your committee are of opinion that
there is no necessity for an increa-e in the
number of the Judge. of the Supreme
Court. The reason offered by the advo
cate of said bill, to-wit: that our pre-ent
system furnishe litigants with no satis- j
factory final Appellate Court, require a j
diiferent remedy from the one propoed ; j
merely inerea.-ing the number of tlie I
Judges of the Supreme Court would not i
cure the present defect
our system of
Your committee feel that this defect is a
serious one, an-l mu-t be removed as early !
as pos-ible, but they are of opinion that a j
general n vi-ion of the statutes r- lating to i
the Judiciary i- m-ces-;iry and de-irabie to j
this end. !
Your committee favor the
ge-ted by the honorable member from;
Lihue and Koloa, to-wit: that the juris-;
diction of the Circuit Judges be increase-!
to correspond with the pre-ent jurisdiction
of the Judges of the Supreme Court in
Chamber- an-l jury trials; that two Circuit
Justice- ! appointed for the i-lan-l of
Oahu; that the supreme Court !- de
prived of original jurisdiction and retain
only appellate jurisdiction in banco, ;md
that its present formation of three Jus
tices be continued permanently; and to
this en-1 we rec' inmer.-l the passage ot the i
amendment ot arti'-le- '" and w of the1
Constitution, now before the A-sembiy:i
and that a Commission oi three be ap-
pointed tu revise the statutes relating to '
thtf ju..iijlirv and report to the next ses- !
on of the I e-ri-lative Assembly.
S. P.. D--LK. hairman.
Mr. Dole -aid this matter was very im
portant in fact, one of the most import
ant that had been brought up -luring the
se-sion. It was rather late in the -e--i--n
to dispo.-e of this question, which contem
plated such a radical chan-re. As an Appel
late Court the supreme ("ourt should be
kept int.c t not weakened, but h unite.
The '-ill. as introduced by Mr. Kaulukou.
would make great eonfusi--w , an-l there
was no provi-ion made for anything. To
look at in any way, it woul 1 be an unsafe
thinyr. Here they were at the en-1 of the
-e--ii'!i. tire-1, hungry and worn out with
overwork, and consequently not in a fit
; state to discuss thoroughly a bill of this
i nature. What was wanted was a t 'ourt
; where an appeal ca-e would nut be heard '
; by the Judges who had heard it before.
' Th h-'uiorablf member stated at length the
defer ts in the Supreme Court many years
; ai.'-"i au-1 the trouble that aro-e.
: Hon. Mr. Pi-hot. said that in the matter
' of making change- in the supreme Court

Ju-ticc- Andrew an i Ii, there wa- -oon en
tire ronii iot'.cc in the supreme Court, and
it has been .-o trom that :: to this. At
the pre-t-r.t lime there arc three good
lawyer- on the supreme Bench, again-t
whom no otic ha-a word lo-ay. During
ail the-e year- the -r. ni has been the
same. He did n-t knew of a country
where there had been le complaint- from
the failure of justice. When abroad peo-
p!e aske-l him about the I -land- a nd also
the Court-. ,. toi-l th?m tliey had a
go--d supreme "urt. Then they -aid,
you are well oil. and you cm con-ider
your life and property -ate. If they
pa-sed this bill it would weaken the C urt
and weaken the re-pect it command t
home an-l abroad. Con-idt-ring how few
the complaints had been, he thought the
llou-e had better make the change a- rec
ommended by Mr. Dole. D was a meas
ure that was -afe an-l he wa- iu favor of it.
Mr. Kaulukou said he Iiopt d the Hou-e
! would pa-- the lir.-t section. It is identi-
j cal with section 1-7 of the i v il Code, and
I seeks to repeal -cctivins ho sin an-l !47 of
' the same ("ode. The Hon. Mr. Hi-hop
I need not have any apprehension at all if
: thi- bill passed. The appointment of live
'; Judge, will not le-sen the confidence in
j the Court. The pre-ent system ha-been
in u-c- twenty-seven years without change.
Now was the time to get the Supreme Con rt
on a lirmerand better bad-.
Mr. Kichar-lson -poke at length in Ha
waiian, which va not "trau-lated, against
j the hill, arguing that it won!-! increase the
His Kxcellency Mr. Dare .-ai-l the ques
tion as it now .stood presented some re
markable features. One feature was the
unanimity of sentiment as to a change
being required. This Assembly referred
the bill to a -elect committee of five, and
three report had been received from the
live members, all -peaking of ihe neees-ity
for a change. They had then practically
a unanimous report that a change should
be made. The only question left
tor dicus-ion wa as to how that
change should be made. He
wi-hed to reply to Mr. Dole.
In the first place, that member, in his
usual bland and atfable manner, says there
i- not time to di-cu-s this bill. It was in
troduced Julyl'oth. On .September 7th it
wa referred to a special committee, of
which Mr. Dole was Chairman. He ha-
held it a month all but two days, and now j
says there is not time. As to his proposi
tion, he (the speaker) agreed with him
that they should make a good Supreme
Court, but it devolved a delay of two years,
possibly four years, and it might be indefi
nite. Roth the Hon. Mr. Rishop and Mr.
Dole had indulged in reminiscences, and
had painted very graphically the condi
tion of the Courts in former year. Rut
the Hon. Mr. Wilder had told him the
speaker) that the Post Ofiice at onetime
was a caudle box; the mail bag a hat, and
the shipping consisted of idle whalers,
while the Ha waiian Hag only floated over
this island.. Rut thing are changed now.
There is a tine Post Ofiice. with a revenue
of $5n,0o0 a year; a large fleet of inter
island steamers, and the Hawaiian flag
tlie on the broad Pacific on large steam
ships. The mail had increased, for where it
was at one time contained i:i a candle box,
now it came in by tons. Commerce with
the outer world had changed from a
chance .-hip to a line of first-class
steamer-, running regularly twice a
month. The products had changed
from a few potatoes and dried fi-h, until
they were now exporting lon,jo tons sugar
a year. Where the annual rentals oi
land was a few fish, they now amounted
to a few thousands of dollars. The capital
of the country had increased until they
were now rich. In tho-e days of utter
cares, resulting from the absence of any
system of judi' iary, even a one-man
power or despotic system was better than
ncme. It served the j-urpo-e then, but the
commerce of the country had outgrown it!
It was not nece-sary for him to repeat the
denie-1 right of appeal, becau-e all the
member who had spoken agree-' on that

sity the remedy should be applied. It wa
admitted there was a defect to be cured, j

in hi mind a remedy. Let them amen
