PACIFIC COMMERCIAL r ADVERTISER, NOVEMBER 19 , 1887.
T HE E Pacific Commercial Advertiser Is now for sale paily M il lcli-r r2neB J. H. SO PER Mercuaat street A. M. HEWETT Merchant street T. fl. "THRUM - -....Fort street ' WM. STRAHLMANN Hawaiian Hotel Five Cents per Copy. SATURDAY November 19th THE WEATHER. The heavy downpour of rain which has continued almost without ceasing for forty-eight hours has left the streets of the city in a condition, which, though an improvement upon what they were during the last wet season, is still such as to render them in places almost im passable for pedestrians. The reputa tion of Honolulu in this respect has hitherto been of a character rivalling that of Constantinople. But the mere inconvenience is a secondary matter. The trouble arises from the absence of drainage, and this is a serious menace to the sanitary condition of the city. If the water, together with the miscel laneous accumulation o. Sltli, is allowed to lie, subjected to the vary vicissitudes of the solar rays and tropical showers, the exhalations from it must inevitably lead to sickness more or less, and in the event of an epidemic, would give it an impetus which would cause fearful havoc. How long is this danger to exist? SAMOA AFFAIRS. Everything Quiet at Apia at Latest Accounts. Mr. J. E. IIuh!i Returns With Family, and Gives Interesting Particulars Tlie U. &. S. Attains at Apia. Among the passengers by the Ala meda yesterday afternoon were Mr. John E. Bush and family. A repre sentative of the Advertiser called upon him dining last evening and found him well and rather glad to get back. He stated that the U. S. S. Adams arrived at Apia, after a passage of fifteen days from Honolulu. When he left Apia the German ships-of-war Bismarck, Olga, Sophie and Carora were at anchor there. At Tutuila they saw a French corvette on her way to Apia. James Keau had enibarked on the Colonial steamship Lubeck for Tonga on a pleasure trip. He would return to Apia, and may be expected back A in Honolulu about De cember 16th, on the Mariposa. Every thing is quiet at Samoa, no disturbances having occurred of late. The rebel Chief Tamasese, who was proclaimed King by the Germans, is now carefully guarded by German soldiers. His fol lowers have abandoned him, and have joined with Malietoa's forces. This action was due to a certain Chief Gov ernor of a village who had a dispute with Tamasese, owing to the latter ruling with absolute monarchial sway, and his desire to levy taxes oa his sub jects in order to meet the demands of the German Commodore for services rendered during the late trouble. The Commodore has charged Tamasese $250 for firing 100 guns, $1,000 for each vessel which guarded Apia, and made other charges which will amount in the ag gregate to several thousand dollars. Malietoa had not been returned to Samoa. At last accornts he had been been transferred from the German war ehip Adler to the Albatross, which ves sel was to carry him either to New Guinea or Germany. Tamasese's former followers are on the look out for a chance to kill kirn, but are hindered in their designs by the vigilance of German soldiers who have J him under protection. It is understood, however, that as soon as the Germans withdraw their men they will be after Tamasese and carry out their threat. The Geiman Commodore was daily ex pecting the Adler at Apia, after which he would leave with two other vessels for an unknown port. They would leave only two German men-of-war at Apia. The American and British Consuls do not recognize Tamasese's authority at all, and their action has been approved of by their respective Governments. It appears that the German Commodore has been deceived by the German Con sul at Apia, for the former was told that it would only take him a week to revo lutionize affairs in Samoa, and two months have passed and he is in a much worse position now than when he first undertook the task. The Samoans are anxious to make Mataafa, another Chief of higher rank than Tamasese, King of Samoa, During Mr. Bush's stay in Sa moa, whenever the Samoans had a diffi cult problem to solve concerning public affairs, they always went to him for ad vice, and placed a great deal of confi dence in h:m. He is pretty well ac qua;nted with the Samoan language. The "Honolulu Almanac and Directory" for 1837 is now on sale at J. II. Soper's and A. M. Hewett's news depots, and at his office.

The resolution was adopted. OPINION OF THE SUPREME COURT ON THE LOjN. President Wilder announced he had re ceived the following communication from the Justices of the Supreme Court: Department of the Judiciary, ) Honolulu, Nov. 18, 1887.C Hon. S. G. Wilder, President Legilutive Assembly Sir: The Justices of the Su preme Court have had the honor to re ceive a communication from you, dated the 15th instant, in which the opinion of the Justices is asked by. the Legislature on certain questions which appear in the re port of a select committee of the House, to whom was referred a b;,l to amend the Loan Act of 1886. The first question sub mitted is: Under the Acts of 1886 where would such bonds be payable? There were two Acts passed by the Leg islature of 1886, relative to a national loan. The first was approved on the 1st of September, 1886, which for convenience in this discussion we will call the "First Act," and the second, which was amendatory of the first, was approved ou the 15th day of October, 18S6, we wi-1 call this the "Second Act." Section 6 of the First Act authorizes the Minister of Finance "to make such proper arrangements a3 will enable the holders of such bonds to receive the interest due on the same either in Honolulu, or in the city of San Francisco, or in such financial center as he may deem advisable." We consider that this is a provision for the remittance f interest and that it can not be extended beyond what is plainly ex pressed. It does not provide for the pay ment of the bonds at any place. No place being mentioned in the Act for their pay ment, it must be taken that they are paya ble at the Treasury in Honolulu, whence they are issued. The second question is: Is section 5 of the Loan Act, dated September 1, 1886, in force? We answer: This section is not re pealed in terms by the Second Act, nor can we find anything that repeals it by implication. The First Act authorized the loan and the issue of bonds ; the Second Act amended sections 2, 3 and 4 of the First Act, and it left the remaining sections, 1, 5, C and 7, of this Act untouched. Section 5 is therefore in force, and is .the only au thority for the payment of any commis sions or expenses out of the avails of the loan. The third question is : If said section 5 is in force, does the same exclude payment of any "expenses for floating the loan, etc., other than 5 per cent commission? We answer: The terms of section 5 authorize, first, the payment of the com mission allowed by section 3. This must be considered now to refer to section 3 as amended. This allows a commission.which is not to exceed 5 per cent, to the person or syndicate negotieting the sale of the first issued half of the loan, to wit: $1,000,000. These bonds being sold at not less than 98 per cent of par value, and likewise a com mission not to exceed 5 per cent for nego tiating the remaining issues. Section 5 also authorizes the payment for preparing such bonds and coupons. The plain intendment of these words can not be extended to mean the payment of charges in the nature of advertisement, brokerage, guarantee, English stamp duties, etc., such not being expenses for paper, engraving and printing of bonds and coupons. If the financial agents employed by the Government have incurred other expense, which are deemed reasonable and neces sary by the Legislature, they should be paid from such appropriation as the Legis lature may make, but as the appointment of this agency is outside the Act, the ex penses thus incurred are not payable out of the avails of the loan. Question 4: "In any case, is the item of $100,C00 in section 3 of the amended Act intended to be in addition to such 5 per cent commission ?" We answer: The item of $100,000 ap propriated for expense of floating loan, j etc., cannot be intended to be in addition to the 5 per cent commission, first, because there is no provision elsewhere for the payment of the 5 per cent. Secondly, be cause the phrase "negotiating the sale" of the bonds cannot be considered as any thing but floating loan. What is the 5 per cent given for but for negotiating, i. e., floating the loan, and that is what the $100,000 is appropriated for, and there is no other appropriation for anything else of of the like nature, the balance of the $2, OCO.OOO being specially appropriated for other objects. The $100,000 is evidently an estimated sum, for, in the First Act ii was put at $86,000, presumably because no commission was to be allowed by the Act for bonds sold in this Kingdom. More over the commission being fixed at a max imum of 5 per cent, it was contemplated that the business might be done for a lower rate. Question 5. Is any engagement for bonds payable in sterling money valid under said Loan Acts of 1886? We answer; The bonds must conform to the terms of the Acts. The whole scope and intent of these is for bonds to be is issued by the Hawaiian Government for a certain sum, to wit, $2,000,000 in U. S. gold coin, or its equivalent, in denominations of not less than $100. It is nowhere pro vided in the Act that this is to be a loan designed for the English money market and to be converted by the Minister of Fi nance into bonds of which the principal and coupons are to be payable in sterling money. The bonds are to be issued by the Minister of Finance, to be sold in this Kingdom or anywhere else in the world to whoever may desire to invest money in such security. The bonds issued under these Acts certainly are to be all of one form a form conforming to the statute in other respects, and in this that they are bonds for amounts expressed in dollars not in pounds for the London market, francs for the Paris Bourse, or marks for the German markets. It is in our view a mistuken and unwarrantable impression that this was a specific English loan. The Acts specify U. S. gold or its equiv alent. This must be . considered as per mitting a mode of payment and not a var iation of the terms of the bonds. Thus, the coupons or bonds nay be paid in such amounts in sovereigns or p". S. silver as would be equivalent or equal to the amount expressed in U. S. gold. Question 6. "Is the Government respon sible for the engagement of its agent to pay 15,0C as mentioned in the Minister's re port, provided such engagement was not authorized by the Loan Acts of 18S6?" We adopt as our answer the language of Judge Story, in his work on "Agency," section 307 A: "But in cases of public agents the Government, or other public authority is not bound, unless it 'mani festly appears that the agent is acting within the scope of his authority, or he is held out as having authority to do the act, or is employed, in his capacity as a public agent, to make the declaration or representation for the Government. In deed, this' rule seems indispensable, in order to guard the public against loss and injuries arising from the fraud or mistake, or rashness and indiscretion of their agents. And their is no hardship in re quiring from private persons dealing with public officers, the duty of inquiry, as to their real or apparent power and authority to bind the Government." This principal is applicable to not merely the financial agents of the Government, but the Min isters who gave them the instructions. As the engagement to pay the 15,000 in ad dition to the 5 per cent commission was unauthorized by the Act of the Legislature, the country is not bound by it. Question 7: "If the Court shall say that the Loan Acts of 1886 do not authorize the engagement to pay 15,000 in addition to the 5 per cent as commissions earned therein, would the Government then be justified in refusing to issue bonds to cover the 15,000. If it shall also appear that the Government has contracted for the payment of such 15,000 ii addition to the commissions, and has actually received the remainder of the money ?" This is not a matter ot law, but a matter of policy for the Government and the Leg islature to consider and settle. If by "justified" is meant legally bound, we are not sufficiently informed as to the facts of the case. Much would depend upon what acts of ratification, if any, the Government has done, ani also upon the form of the scrip issued to the general subscribers for the bonds, and by whom issued, and also who are the holders of the scrip. Question 8. "Is the form of the bond herewith submitted authorized by the Loan Acts of 1886 with its proposed amend ment? The proposed amendment of the Acts of 1886 is to-authorize the Minister of Finance to issue bonds expressed in Lon don, England, in sterling money. But the forms of bonds exhibited to us, as beng what would be executed for the English subscribers, contains much which does not conform to our statutes, beside the varia tion of pounds for dollars. Nine conditions are expressed, pursuant to which the bonds are issued, some of which are unauthorized and some in contravention of the term ot the Act as will appear by comparing them with the Act. We specify the conditions 4, 5 and 6. That the bonds to be redeemed after ten years shall be determined by drawings by a lot at a certain counting house in London, and advertised in Lon don newspapers. The Act only provides that the bonds shall be redeemable in not less than ten, nor more than thirty years after the date of issue. The Government may choose to redeem the whole ot them in whatever part of the world held, at the expiration of tea years. Conditions 7 and 8 seem entire ly unnecessary to be expressed in the bonds, and are not suggested by the stat ute. Condition 9, respecting freedom of taxes, is plainly expressed in the Act. Other conditions than the Act itseH need not be and should not be attached to the bonds. If the Legislature shall deem it expedient to pass an enabling Act, it would avoid misunderstand;ngs if the form of the bonds authorized to be issued should be set forth at large in the Act. Kespectfu'ly submitted, A. F. Judd, L. McCully, Edward Preston, RlCIID. F. BlCKERTON. On motion of Noble Castle the report was referred to the special committee on the Loan Act. , REPORT OF JUDICIARY COMMITTEE. Rep. C. Brown presented the following report: Hon. S. G. Wilder, President of the Legis lative Assembly Sir: The Judiciary Com mittee, to whom was referred the bill enti tled " An Act to Amend An Act entitled An Act Relating to the Practice of Medicine by Chinese Physicians," approved August 13, 18S0, respectfully recommend that said bill do pass with the following slight amend mentto wit, that Section 2 of said Act be united with Section 1, so as to read as in the engrossed copy of said Act, herewith submitted. Cecil Brown, A. Jaeger, W. A. Kinney, A. P. Paehaole, Charles Wall. The report was adopted and the bill was ordered to be read a third time on Saturday. ENGROSSING. Rep. C. Brown said he had been informed that it was impossible to get engrossing done for 25 cents per folio. It could be done for 50 cents. This matter was in the hands of the President. He thought the House had better take some notice of it if they want to get along with work. Noble Smith Where is Minister Thurs ton's $5-a-da3r man? Minister Thurston I can get him at five minutes' notice. President Wilder suggested that the House take some action in thejnatter. Rep. Kinney moved that the Secretary be instructed to get the engrossing done at not more than 50 cents per folio. Agreed to. GOVERNMENT LANDS. Noble Townsend put the following ques tions to the Minister of the Interior: 1. What Government lands in Honolulu are now under lease, at what rental is each piece held, and who is the holder of each lease? 2. How are such rents paid in advance, or otherwise? 3. To what date is each rental paid? 4. What sum, if any, is now due the Gov ernment on account of such rents? LIQUORS. Noble Castle asked the Minister of For eign Affairs if the report relating to liquors required from the Custom House was ready. Minister Brown safd the report, which was voluminous and consisted of nothing but figures, was ready. The Minister of Finance was expected in the House to-day to present it, but he is quite seriously ill. On motion of Rep. C. Brown the report was referred to the select committee on liquors. ORDER OF THE DAY. Second reading of an Act to appropriate $10,000 for defraying the expenses of the extra session of 1887. Passed to engrossment and will be read a third time on Saturday. Second reading of an Act supplemental to the Appropriation Bill, making special appropriations for the use of the Govern ment during the two years which will end with the 31st day of March, A. D. 1S88, dated October 14, 1886. Tiie House resolved itself into committee of the whole, Noble Dole in the Chair. Noble Castle moved that the committee only consider items in the bill before them, and that no new items be considered. Mo tion was finally withdrawn. Lighting city of Honolulu with electric light, $3,750. Minister Thurston moved that when the committee rise they recommend the House to pass the item. Noble Smith wished to know who ini tiated the electric light and other particu lars. Minister Thurston then gave a brief out line of what had been done and what was being done at the present time, and also particulars regarding the running of the dynamo by water power. Rep. Kamuoha moved to strike it out of the bill. Noble Young said they had gone so far with the electric light they had better carry it out. In answer to a question. Minister Thurs ton said the expenses of lighting the. city with gas were $49G per month ; by the elec tric light it was $567 28. That was for 60 lights. One hundred lights would be be tween $600 and $700 a month. The electric light gave ten times more light than gas. The item passed as in the bf I. Completion of new Police Court building, $8,313 95. On motion of Noble Young the item was referred to a special committee. At noon the House took a recess. Afternoon Session. The Committe reassembled at 1 :05. Repairs of Mausoleums, $600. Passed. Emma Square, $80. Passed. Salary of Japanese Inspector and Inter preter, $2,000. Minister Thurston said that the past Government engaged Mr. Nakayama as Inspector and Interpreter at $3,000 a year. He was paid that amount up to the session of Legislature, 1886. Since then he had only been paid at the rate of $2,000 a year. If the amount of $3,000 were not paid him he would leave. He is a valuable man, and should be retained. Rep. Kamuoha moved it be referred to a special committee. Noble Wideraann said he knew this In spector, Mr. Nakayama. He; often came to him, but on other people's business. He believed he was interested in the Japanese house in town known as Nippu & Co. A man of his ability coald not get $3,000 a year in Japan. These matters should be taken into consideration. Minister Thurston said he had heard rumors of Nakayama being connected with the Nippu house, but the Japanese Con sul had denied it. The item passed as in the bill. Traveling expenses, stationery and inci dentals of Superintendent of Public Works, $250. Passed. Repairs and furniture, Aliiolani Hale, $500. Passed. Running expenses of steam tugs, $7,000. Minister Thurston said that this was one of the items in which the Cabinet had paid out money without authorization. They had paid so far $5,375 26. He did not be lieve in Cabinet resolutions, and would always oppose them. The item was neces sary, and the Cabinet felt justified in mak ing this expenditure. It is for the House to say whether they did ri.Mit r not. Rep. C. Brown moved the item pass as in the bill. Noble Widemann said the Minister had given them a very good illustration of what a Cabinet re-ohition was. He would say to the nu mbers: Beware of Cabinet resolutions; they have been a stumbling block to many a man. I warn 3'ou, gen tlemen, to keep your hands of Cabinet resolutions. Noble iSmith moved the item pass at $1,624 74. The Ministers ought to have brought in an indemnity bill, and not brought this item in this. way. He de nounced Cabinet resolutions, and the House should not tolerate them. Rep. Kinney thought the Ministers should withdraw the items and bring in an indemnity bill. They will come out of it without any harm. Noble Young favored the. carrying out of the plan as brought in by .the' Ministers. Noble Widemann said the Ministers were not in fault "for not having sufficient appropriation. The tug had to be kept rmining. He begged of the members for God's sake not to follow any precedents that had been established. Noble Castle said no Cabinet resolution had authority to spend the people's money. Noble Townsend favored the motion made by Noble Smith. The motion to pass the item as in the bill was lost, 19 to 17. Minister Thurston moved the item pass at $2,589. Agreed to. Government printing, $2,500. Passed. Books and stationery for Registrar of Conveyances, $100. Passed. Expenses of election, $4,C0O. On motion of Minister Thurston this item was stricken out. Maintenance of Insane Asylum, $2,800. Minister Thurston said that a commis sion had been appointed to report on the condition of the Asylum. They had rec ommended changes which were necessary, and to carry them out more money would be required. Noble Castle said that the improvements being carried out at the Asylum were at the recommendation of the investigating committee. The way the Asylum had been run was a crying shame and outrage. The item passed as in the b'M!. Water pipes, Kalaupapa, $6,000. .Minister Thurston said that the vessel with the pipes was due any day now. There was an appropriation of $15,C-K), but as the pipes had cost $14,000 it leaves noth ing for laying them and other expenses. Hep. Paehaole said one Oi the great troubles at the leper settlement was the want of a good supply of water. The item passed. Encouragement ot the cultivation of cinchona, $2,000. Minister Thurston stated to the House the reason for asking for this appropriation. Mr. Forsyth, who had been engaged in the business elsewhere, had made a tour of Ha waii and Maui as to the prospects of grow ing cinchona, and was now writing a report. It was worth whi'e for this Government to attempt to introduce something else besides sugar. Noble Foster asked about the $3,500 ap propriated by the last Legislature for this object. Minister Thurston said that was for a cer tain individual, W. H. Purvis, who was cultivating cinchona in Hamakua. Rep. Kamuoha moved the item be strick en out. . Rep. Paehaole thought the matter should come before the House in the form of a bill. Rep. Kalaukoa said there were more pressing matters for them to look after than cinchona. Again, last session an item was passed for the cultivation of ramie. He had noticed in the papers lately that the man who had the ramie matter in charge had gone bankrupt. Now, they did not want to bankrupt the cinchona man. Roads and bridges ought to be looked after, and therefore he was in favor of striking the item out. The item was passed as in the bill. Running expenses of the Honolulu Water Works, $1,450. Passed. Paj'ment for land taken tor Honolulu Water Works at Makiki, $12,200. Stricken out. Roads of Honolulu, $31,225. Rep. Naone, moved that an item of $1,500 for the Pauoa road be added, making the total $32,725. The item passed at $32,725. Rep. Kinney moved that an item of $2, 500 be inserted for a commission to investi gate the feasibility of supplying the district of Hamakua with water. Noble Wight said he would like these water heads to be examined, so as to see if the expense would not be less for bringing the water into Kohala than Hamakua. The Kohala district was equally in need of water. Some lands in the district could not be used solely for the want of water. He moved that the appropriation be fixed at $5,000. The item passed at $2,500. ' Rep. Kalaukoa moved that an item of $800 be inserted for widening the Pelehuli bridge, Nuuanu Avenue. Lost. The committee rose and the Chairman reported progress and asked leave to sit again. The report of the committee was adopted. THE ENGLISH BONDS. Noble Castle, on suspension of the rules, presented the following report: Hon. S. G. Wilder, President Legislative Assembly Sir: The select committe, to which was referred "An Act to Authorize the Minister of Finance to Execute and Deliver Certain Bonds," respectfully re port as foMows: The Act above mentioned is intended to authorize the Minister of Finance to execute the bonds generally known as the English bonds. The opinion of their Honors the Justices of the Supreme Court decides the law of the matter. By this decision the bonds are payable only at the place of issue, to wit, in Honolulu. If the bonds are to be fur nished at all and the obligation of the Gov ernment fu'fi'.'ed, it wi'l require n en abling Act. Your committee are of the opinion that as a matter of economy alone, to say nothing of any other reasons, it will be for the advantage of this country to have said bonds issued and paid in London. It will be for our advantage if the rates of ex change continue in the future about as at present. Your committee have had meetings and have taken evidence upon the matters re ferred to them, and are not yet prepared to report upon any matter excepting upon the Act above mentioned. They regard it as a matter of imperative importance for the honor and credit of the country that bonds be issued for the amount negotiated, and for which the country has received the money. This amounts to $200,CD0, and for this amount bonds should immediately be issued and forwarded. A steamer will leave for the United States and elsewhere on Tuesday next, and it is important that no further delay be had. In the opinion of the committee, the bill referred to then is insufficient. It would seem better, if not inconsistent with the right of the country, that an Act be intro duced covering specittcially the terms of the amended bondsi It is the duty of the Government to put forward such an Act as will enable it to perform its duty xiroperly, and the committee herewith report back said bill with the recommendation that it be reterred at once to the Attorney Gen eral, together with the form of bonds sub mitted to the Committee, W. R. Castle, W. O. Smith, Geo. H. Dole, J. Wight. The report was adopted. President Wilder appointed the follow ing Committee on Police Court budding A. Young. E. 11. Bailey, Minister ot Inte rior, H. Deacon and J. D. Paris. At 4 :45 the House adjourned to 10 o'clock Saturday morning. Legislative Cult-Chat. Rep. Rice is home sick with the fever. Minister Green is unable to leave his room. Three of the Nobles are now absent on the other islands. Minister Thurston said yesterday that part of the ceiling in Judge Bickerton's room feM. down the other day and nearly scalped the Judge. Noble Robinson made his first speech yesterday. He wanted to take the Minister of the Interior in towage. Noble Smith said yesterday he did not want to be captious and take up the time of the House, ret he went on spouting at great length just the same. " Noble Foster had the following resolu tion written out yesterday: Resolved, That the lawyers in this present Legislature be and are hereby prohibited from speaking on any and all subjects unt'l all other members have spoken who may wish to speak. It is a pity he did not present it, for it ought to be adopted. After Noble Widemann had concluded si short address on indemnity b;,.ls yesterday, Minister Thurston jumped upland said that if the Noble made just one more such speech it would be in order to call him a crank. It was expected that Noble Jaeger would have said something when the cinchona item was up. But nary a word. &&vtttittmtntfi.
