AT THB CAPITOL. AN EXHAUSTIVE FIN AN CI L STATEMENT BY MINISTER DAMON. How Hawaii Could Be Self-Sns taitiiog After Annexation. Kcfcolutlons Concerning Government Properly Flrnt KeaHlnfc of e w Fill Rout Ine Balne, Etc.. Ktc. Thursday, July C. The councils convened at 1:45 p.m. There were present Ministers -Dole, King, Damon and Smith; Conncil men Ena, Wilder, Tenney, Brown, Young, Nott, Morgan, Kmmelnthand Waterhonee. The minutes of the previous meet ing were read and approved. The miscellaneous committee pre sented the following roport, which, on motion of Mr. Brown, was adop ted: Hon. S. B. Dole, Chairman, Execu tive and Advisory Councils, Provi sional Government: Sir: Your committee to whom was referred tho recommendation of Col. Soper in regard to the disposal of the saluting battery, beg leave to report, that upon examination and from ex lert testimony, we find that one of the guns, called No. 3, is iu bad con dition and dangerous; the other six are in good order. "We, therefore, recommend that the guns be dismounted and placed iu charge of the military authorities for storaze or use at any future time. Respectfully submitted, Jas. F. Morgan, C. Bolte, Jxo. Nott. Attorney General Smith made a formal verbal report on the action taken by the executive council at Ka lalau. He rehearsed the details of the expedition, its object, orders, and the dispatches received and sent, such as have already been published fully and exclusively in the Adver tiser. By the steamer Iwalani, which left yesterday (July 5th), dis patches had been sent to Captain Iar.en. urging prudence, caution and firmness until the murderer Koolau was secured and the balance of the lepers arrested and removed. There wtre, or had been, 103 people at Ka lalau valley, 23 of whom were lepers. All had now been removed or were accouted for except eight, viz:. Five men, two women and one child. The government hoped to be able to re port a successful termination of the affair at the next regular meeting of the councils. In the matter of segre gation of lepers the government was following out the policy strictly and faithfully. To meet the demands caused by the fulfillment of the law, new buildings had been ordered at the leper settlement, as already published in the Adver tiser. He also spoke of the treat ment of Dr. Goto and explained that preliminary examinations had been made with a view to provide records of the progress of the disease and its treatment. Drs. Oliver and Mouritz would make further examinations to supplement the records. The govern ment considered the matter of lep rosy most serious, and intended to treat it accordingly. The attorney-general also called attention to the bill giving jurisdic tion to certain district magistrates so as to extend their authority to a police jurisdiction. In illustration of the necessity of the new law, he cited the case of Koolau, the leper mur derer, pud pointed out the difficulty of issuing warrants. This bad been the reason for declaring martial law in the districts of Waimea andHana lei. In support of a proposition to take the bill from the table, the attorney-general read a report there on furnished by the marshal, recom mending the passage of the bill. On motion the bill was taken from the table to be presented at the next regular meeting. The minister of finance arose to present his weekly financial state ment, and said he was glad that the financial reports and statements had secured the good opinion of the pub lic, who had lately expressed con fidence which was truly gratifying to the government, and especially to the finance department. The finances were the pulse of the government's health, and when found in a healthy condition was a sure indication that public confidence would be continued and increased. He wished to point out that the special certificates have been readily taken up, as much as $4,200 being taken the past week. In government bonds a like healthy state existed, there having been some S2000 worth pold this week, which brought the total sales up to over 50,000 to date. Deposits in the postal savings bank have also been most gratifying, as well as the pay ments in other departments, such as the water works, etc. A month ago it seemed that the public had but little confidence in the financial situation; now all was changed, and very en couraging indeed.

Snmn time since. Minister Damon stated, he had submitted a statement showing that the government was self-sustaining under present condi tions; be now proposed to show how, without increased taxation, the pnnntrv would be self sustaininc: in the event of annexation to the United States, which would cut off the rev derived from the custom house and pest office. He also wished to point out that under the weekly statement it was to be seen that dur- n? the present month there had been an absolute gain of about Sift mo. whirh it was the intention of the' finance department to convert into a reserve t una ior tne iuiure. The statement referred to was as follows: Estimated yearly loss and gain, tak- t ... ing an average ior me past, ruieeii years on Custom House, and live years Post Office and payments, and the yearly receipts on other items of revenue, to show the posi tion of the Treasury, in the event of the United States taking over the Custom House and Post Office.

Minister Damon said he was under great obligations to Auditor-General Ross for furnishing statistics, etc. The minister also stated he held in his hand ready for inspection, three tables compiled by Mr. lhos. Ur. Thrum, viz.: 1. Hawaiian surar plantation cor porations, showing the amount of in vestments therein ana nationality oi stockholders in each. This table shows the total capital stock to be $28,224,300, of which $1S,594,GD5 re presents American capital. 2. Hawaiian corporations, other than sugar plantations, showing amount of investments therein, and nationahtv of stockholders in each. This table shews the total capital stock of G,150,703. Of this amount 2,090,994: represents American cap ital and $1,289,520 British these two leading tho list. 3. Sncrar plantations and planting interests, Hawaiian, not incorporated. This table 6hows an estimated value cf $3,000,000, represented as follows: American, s-llo.OUU; Hawaiian porn American, 300,000; British, $1,195 000 ; German, 515,000; Norwegian $375,000. The burvoyor-general has also mad a detailed statement of lauds and ownership thereof, with values, statements of government and crown lands, etc. Both sets of tables had been presented to Minister Blount, and had placed at his disposal large amounts of information never before brought together. In conclusion, the minister of fin ance spoke of the biennial estimates made in tho past and to be made hereafter. He was greatly pleased to state that ho found the govern ment was conducted much better today than it was in 18S9, when he had been in office before. He illus trated the progress made by the compilation of lists of employees and the total amounts of salaries paid. The advance had been especi ally marked in the past three or four years. The influence of the reforms started. in 1SS7 was not dead and would not die; the movement ' for ward since that time had been con tinuous. There were 100G employees in the government who were perman ently employed, representing a monthly pay roll of $61,000. In the above table I have endeavored to show that in case of annexation we would be self-sustaining. Of course the plan is open to criticism, and I ask that such be made; it is the only way to perfect the outline proposed. Besides these statements I wish to say that the finance department re ceives daily reports from all sub de partments, such as details from the post office and savings bank which are always open to inspection. Mr. Waterhouso said the report was most satisfactory and moved it be accepted and placed on file. Car ried. Attorney-General Smith presented the following resolution: Resolved that a committee of three be appointed to report upon the con dition of certain relics of royalty, such as uniforms, trappings, glass and china, and certain gilded chairs in eludinr two or three chairs classified as thrones, and to recommend to this council a disposition oi tue same. In presenting the resolution and those to follow, he said the executive council wished the aid and advice of the advisory council. After consid erable discussion tho first resolution was passed. The Eecond resolution was then read, as follows : Resolved that the books belonging to the government which were loaned to the Honolulu Library and Reading Room Association in 1SSS, be trans ferred absolutely to that association. President Dole said that some of the books needed rebinding, and this would be done if the books were turned over to the library, where good care would also be given them. Mr. Morgan thought the matter should be referred to a committee for investigation. The third resolution was read, as follows: Resolved that all curiosities hereto fore loaned or delivered to the Pauahi Bishop Museum for safe keeping and exhibition, be transferred absolutely to the said museum. Minister Damon asked if govern ment property could be disposed of iu this manner. Attorney-General Smith thought the method was proper and legal. It would not be practical to dispose of the property at auction, as its value lay in its historic worth, and should be preserved to tho public. Mr. Brown favored reference to a committee. It was doubtful if the government could pass title under its provisional powers and limits. President Dole said all the books upstairs should bo included iu tho resolution. It was so amended. The first resolution was referred to the following committee: Hon. W. F. Allen, E. D. Tenney and John Ena. The second and third resolutions were referred to a committee com posed of James F. Morgan, Henry Wateruouse and John Nott. Mr. John Ena read the following question: Advisory Council Hall July 6, 1:93. His Excellency W. O. Smitit. Attor ney-General Provisional Govern UK'Ut. Sir: It is currently rumored that you have issued an older through the marshal, prohibiting the Hawaiian National band from playing at any public places in this city. If so ; why so? Respectfully submitted, J. Ena. Mr. Smith rehearsed the facts con nected with the disturbance at the Oceanic wharf, and stated that the Hawaiian National band was not prohibited from playing at the wharves and public squares; but the executive council, after careful con sideration, had decided that that band should not hereafter play at such places without first obtaining per mission, which would be granted upon application in most cases. Mr. Ena said the explanation was entirely satisfactory; the report cir culated was, that the National band would not be allowed to play at all. Attorney-General Smith presented a bill amending the judiciary act to correct an error. It was read a nrst time by the secretary and passed to second reading. The secretary began the reading of the military bill. Mr. Emmeluth moved it be con sidered section by section. Carried The first section was passed after slight amendment. After considerable discussion on the words excepting Asiatics from military service, further consider ation of the bill was postponed until next meeting. At 3 p. m. the councils went into special session. jcio SUiricrtisemmta. Marshal's Sale. BY VIRTUE OF A WRIT OF Execution, issued out of the First Circuit Court, on the 21st da' of June, A.

Remaining on the table throughout the meal, they entirely take the place of the desert knife for spread ing butter, certainly more dainty and giving the other instrument a chance to be used for what it tvas intended.
