Recoud UT' Session or AdrUery C'ouoclls Dangerous Tersons Act Introduced Fst Getting Lawi lute ?hnp' lieutenants Ask More Salary. The consideration of amendments took the principal attention c.t the Advisory Councils yesterday after noon. Under the head of petition?, a j communication from the lieutenants of the regular military companies was read. They state that during the time of active service the lieutenants of the volunteer service were allowed th9 same pay as United States officers of the eame rank The regulars do not afek for extra -fay during the rebellion but, iu view of the fact that they are always in activo service, request that their salaries be raised to the rate of United States army officers ' A larger clothing allowance is also desired. The communication had the sanction of the captains of " regular companies and many volunteer officers. The petition was referred to the Military Committee. The Judiciary Committee itported numerous amendments to the incis ures submitted Wednesday, and in the place of the indemnity law pre sented two acts embodying the pro visions of tbe one uuder consideration. The report 'was tabled to be consid ered with the bills. Minister Damon introduced an act calling for tbe appropriation of $23,500, divided as follows: Expenses cf Ex ecutive Council, $2000; expenses of Advisory Council, $1500; suppression of the rebellion of 1895, $15,C00 ; elec tion expenses, $5000. Mr. Dumon ex plained that there is a balance of abowt-$21,000 for rebellion expenses, and bills are now rendered amount ing to $23,769.73. Bills for priuting and advertising are not in, but it is thought the extra $15,000 will be sufrl cient. The appropriation of $10,000 for election expense had been insuffi cient by about $2000. and a special election was soon to be held costing not less than $500. That there might be a balance for emergencies, $5000 was asked. The Act pansed the second reading and was put over to the next meeting. Minister Smith introduced an Act relating to dangerous persons which passed its first reading and was re ferred to the Judiciary Committee President Dole introduced an Act of similar intent, remarking that it should not be inferred that there was a division in the Executive Council. They desired to get at the best form and presented the matter for .the con sideration of the Couucils. Under the first-mentioued bill "Any person having lawless intentions that are hostile to public order, to the es tablished system of government, or to private rights of life, liberty or prop erty, may, upon the complaint of the Attorney General or his deputy, or the Marshal or his deputy, or any Sheriff, be arrested and brought be fore a Circuit Judge and there be sum marily examined." If it is found that at the time of arrest the person had lawless intentions, "he shall be ad judged to be a dangerous person, and sentenced to expulsion from the Ha waiian Islands." If the judge is not satisfied of the person's guilt he may place him under bond for a term of one year. If the bond is not executed p.ccordiug to the order of the judge, the defendant "shall be committet to prison and shall remain iu custody until the bond be so executed." Any person deported shall not be allowed to return without the consent of the Executive Council until six years have elapsed. Providing such person returns without consent of the Council he shall bo sentenced to imprisonment ! for a term corresponding to tne unex pired balance f the six-year term. The biil introduced by President Dole provMes that the Government officers mentiout d shall make com plaint to a Circuit Judge, who shall take the tworn siM'ement and that of any witnesses. If the complaint is well founded tho person is brought before the JuJi?e i answer, having the rights of defence accorded under Article Sn-tiou 2 ot the Constitu tion. Ti c term of banishment is not less than two yea, or . bond may be given that no lawless .-o-tion will be committed for a term f four years. The penalty for retcrnin r before the time of bani-hrm nt bu- ex. iit-d is the Mr. D. IV Smith asked tlo Minister of finance reguniii.g the reported fa voiitiMu to j-!eini-hip Iii. Mr. Damon said the mutter of pa ronai?e had been dircused in the Ex utive and it was decided to icfer to the Leg islature. The wt.ole tubject is in abyanc awaiting the assembling of the Legislature. Minister Smith called attention to the report of his reruaik given hy the Bulletin, which conveyed a wrong impression. The bills reporte 1 by the committee j MORE REBELLION EXPENS were then taken up. The favorable report on the act to repeal Sections 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 of the act providing for bringing action agai-st the Govern ment was accepted. Tbe bill creating the Supreme Court a court of claims, after numerous amendments, passed the second reading. The first division of Section 1 reads follows: "First All claims against tbe Government found ed upon any statute of the Republic; or upon any regulation of an execu tive department; or upon any con tract, expressed or implied, with tbe Government, and all claims which may be referred to it by either House of the Legislature. Provided, how ever, that no suit shall be maintained, nor shall any process issue against the Government, based on any contract or auy act of any Government officer which such officer Is not authorized to make or do by the laws of this Republic, nor upon any other cause of action than as herein set forth. Section 5 was amended to read: "Every claim against this Govern ment, cognizable as aforesaid, shall be lovtver barred unless the petition set tiog forth a statement thereof is filed in tlio Court, or transmitted to it by the Secretary of the Senate or Clerk of the House of Representatives, as provided by law, withiu two years after the claim first accrues. Provided, that the claims of persons of legal dis ability frhall not be barred if tbe peti tion be filed iu the Court or transmit ted as aforesaid, within one year after the disability has ceased." Other sections were added as follows: Section S. No interest shall be al lowed ou any claim up to the time of the rendition of judgment thereon by the Court, unless upou a contract ex pressly stipulating for the payment of interest. Section 9. Tbe judgment of the Su preme Court in all matters brought before It under tne provisions or tnis Act shall be final. The Indemnity Act was divided because of the possibility that Sec tions 2 and 3 might be readjudged as retrospective, thus invalidating the entire Act. The bill confirming1 the action of the President and his sup porters reads : "Whereas, Boing seduced by the insid ious counsel of wickedly designing per sons, many individuals resident in the island of Uahu, did conspire by force to overthrow the constitution and govern ment here established by law, and in farthorance of such their purpose, did with force and in confederated multitude on tun 6th day of January, 1895, and ou divers other days then lol'owing, in the District of Honolulu, Island of Oabu. levy war against this Republic, and did commit murd-r, and other Monies, and did provide themselves with arms, am munition and dyuamite with treasonous purpose, and with intent to terrorize the iuhabitants of the c ty of Honolulu, and for a time overturn all government ; and TVhkreas, Upon being informed of 8-dd rebellion the President in pursu ance of his constitutional authorpy, did pro'-la'rn that martial law should obtain and prevail throughout the island of Oahu; and Wukbeas, The military and police forces of this Government, with tte loyal co-operation of other residents of the Ha waiian Islands have arrested the spread of this rebellion and have saved the lives and property of law-abidii-g citizens from imminent general sacrifice; and Whereas, It is expedient that all pf-r- scn, who in good faith have actud for the crushing of rebellion, should be in demnified and kept harmless for such their acts of lovalty. Be it enacted by the Execuiive and Advisory Councils oi the Republic of Hawaii: Section 1. All proclamations and orders published or made and all acts matters and things commanded, directed or done, or to bo com'nanded, di ected or done by the Pre-d-nt, or by any officer of the Gove-nment, cr other person acting under the authority of the Pr'pi'ient, for the pur poses and durii g the time herein de clared that is to .i y, on, from and since January G, 105, mini martial lawhhall be declared to be no longer in force, whe her done in a district in which mar tial law was proclaimed or was in force or done in a district in which martial law was in force, in the proclamation or furtherance of martial law, or in the suppression of insurrection, or in the establishment of a military tribunal, or in the arrest, imprisonment, deporta tion. tria', convxtion or sentence of any pr6on charged with treason, or with any disloyal or seditious practice or act or with any act or conspiracy dangi-ro is to the peace, or to the safe y of life or prop erty, or in the arest and detention of persons held for investigation, are here by declared to. have been done within the conttitational authority of the Presi dent and are confirmed Sections 2 and 3 are embodied in a bill protecting the officers of the Gov ernment or other persons acting under them from individual suit for dam ages. In the bill preventing criminals and deported political prisoners from re turning to the country the minimum penalty of Section 3 was stricken out. All bills reported from the Judiciary committee pas-ed the fecond reading. At 4 o clock the Councils adjourned to meet at 2 o'clock, this afternoon. Iacognito.

Some of the Students and Artisans Lately ArrlTed Said to Have Keeelred Pre y1ou Military Training la tbe Army Little Information ou the Hnbjeet. The unexpected arrival of the Ger man steamship Independent yester day moiaing from Kobe, Japan, with 90S Japanese and 400 tons of freight, all for this port, created a vast amount of talk. Outside of those interested but very few had any knowledge that such a vessel was expected, or if they did they were careful to keep their information very much to them selves. It was ordinarily supposed, among the general public, that with the to sumption of Portuguese immigration, for which Minister Thurston has worked s6 hard for the past few months, besides taking a special trip to Europe, that the importation of Japan ese laborers would cease, at least for a time. Such is not the case, bow ever, as today's experience shows, and it eeems to be generally understood that this immigration is to be kept up, and that tbe arrival of just such a steamer with just such, a consignment of passengers and cargo may be looked for every two or three months. Curiosity led an Advertiser re porter to make some Inquiry regard ing the Independent, her passengers and cargo. As far as can be learned the vessel was chartered by K. 8. Ogura & Co., a large Japanese firm whose principal place of business is at Osaka, and which has agencies or branches in several large Japanese cities. It has a branch in Honolulu, and is recognized as one of the largest importing firms here. The vessel it self, however, is consigned toTheo. H. Davies fc Co. Her passengers number a few over 900, of whom two only were in the cabin. Of the remaluder 125 were what is termed free steerage, that is, men who come on their own responsi-. bility and who have complied with the laws of Japan and Hawaii iu so doing, the principal one of which is the ability to produce $50 each iu cash previous to landing. Some of these have their wives and families with them, who are, of course, not subject to thf $50 qualification. The balance are ordinary contract laborers, but brought here through the agency of Ogura & Co. and not by direct order of the Board of Immigration of Ha waii. Such being the case the Hawaiian Governm-nt has nothing to do with tbera beyond seeing that the usual quarantine regulations are enforced, the principal one of which is that all steerage passengers arriving hy ves sels less than eighteen days Horn Ori ental ports shall be m injected to at least five days' quaran'tue. Although there is no suspicion oi any Infectious disease among the Independent's pas' sengers, this regulation is being strict ly carried out, and bi tween 11 aud 2 o'clock yesterday the immigrants were ail landed at the quarantine sta tion. All of tbe laborers are under contract to work on the sugar planta tions of these islands for the usual period and terms. They were con tracted for by four leading firms here, viz: Shaefer & Co., Irwin & Co.,Theo. H. Davies & Co., aud Hackfeld & Co., and as soon as their quarantine has expired will be shipped to the various plantations represented by these firms. In this connection, it may not be amiss to state that the requisitions sent by these four firms exceeded the number which arrived today about seveuty, that is, that seventy more were ex pected than actually arrived. The de ficit, of course, will be divided propor tionately. While the arrival of this large In -crease to tbe population, and the com ing of an equal number of Portuguese in a week or two, has created much comment in the city during tbe day, it has given rise to a number ot rumors, bearing particularly on the "free la borers," as they are termed. All that is known of this class of Japanese is that they pay their own passage money, prduc the necessary $50 on landing, and come entirely on their own responsibility, but rumor has it about the city that these "free laborers," although enteied on the passenger list as doctors, students, artisans and general laborers, are really here for other and ulterior pur poses That mo?t of these men have had more or less military experience is regarded as lending co'or to the above rumor, though that' fact is easily ac counted for by one familiar with the compulsory military pystem iu vogue in the land of the Ri-ingriun. No foundatiou could be ascertained for any of these reports.
