Second reading of amendment to Ar ticle 57 of the Constitution. Rep. Ka haulelio wanted postponement until the afternoon. He wished to present an important matter in connection therewith. Rep. Pogne moved for in definite postponement. A discussion arose here. Rep. Kahaulelio stated he believed he could throw the vote on the side of the passage, of the bill and in case the members voted against his motion of postponement until the aft ernoon, he would vote for passage. As it was, he intended to vote for in definite postponement in case his mo tion carried. Rep. Kahaulelio was called to book by Rep. Achi, McCand less and the Speaker. It was mani festly improper for a member to make such conditions as he had on the floor of the House. Some cf the members of the House were anxious for indefinite postpone ment and expressed their opinions in that direction. Rep. Richards said he was going to Hilo but if a vote was postponed anj- longer he would stay right here. All the members were pres ent and the matter should be settled at once for all. the chairman made a ruling to the effect that Rule 54 did not apply to an amendment to the Con stitution and therefore a motion lor indefinite postponement was in order. Rep. Achi' appealed from this ruling but the Speaker was sustained. 'Rep. Gear spoke in favor cf the amendment. The House had been in session about a month and had found the necessity for an increase in the membership in the House. Most of the present members were on from three to five committees and every spe cial committee took from these. The work was therefore very much delayed. Rep. Gear said he had not heard a single good argument against the amendment. Rep. Robertson said' he had not found a single good argument in favor of the passage of the amend ment. The delay in work, would be greater if the representation was great er. Rep. Robertson stated: further that he believed the members who were in favor of the passage of the amend ment had unwittingly become the tools of the enemies of the Government. Rep. Achi atose to a point of order. He did not believe an accusation against any of the members of the House to the effect that they were the tools of the Royalists, was allow able. The Speaker expressed the same opinion. Rep. Robertson said, that he didnot for one moment impugn the mo tives of any of the members of the House. He was sure they intended do ing th- right thing. 'He had expressly used the word "unwittingly," meaning that the members referred to were do ing what they considered right but were playing into the .hands of the po litical opponents of the Government. Rep. Loebenstein said that the House was the popular branch of the Legis lature and, as such, was insufficient in numbers. The people, at the present time, were not sufficiently represented. The Constitution certainly had defects. If such was the-case, why not correct these. Upon .being put to vote, the members stood 7 to 7. The Speaker voted against the passage. of the amendment. .'Recess until 1:30 p. m. ' AFTERNOON 'SESSION. fAt the opening of the House in after noon session, the bill relating to un paid claims was brought up in second reading. Its sections were referred to various committees for consideration. This took about ten minutes of the time ef the House. The remainder of the time up to 4:30 o'clock, was taken up with the license bill. The members were all very well informed on the sub ject and took care to let their voices be heard. The section dealing with the withdrawal of alcohol from the Cus tom House by the various druggists created no end of discussion. Some of the members believed that the drug gists were doing all sorts of things and that they wrere manufacturing goods right along in which the need of alco hol was beyond question. Minister Da mon stated that the druggists never used' as much as 150 gallons during the year. There was always a surplus. Rep. Richards backed this up and said that he had statements from the drug gists to that effect. The amount of alcohol was reduced from 300 to 150 gallons as it was deemed by the ma jority of the House that the former amount was too much. The duty on each gallon was then raised from two to three dollars and the section passed as amended. Section S3, relating to license on no taries public and agents to take ack nowledgment was stricken out of the bill. The other sections were then considered and passed with slight amendments. The bill then passed third reading. Y. 31. C. A. Stars. The S. S. China, of the Pacific Mail line, expected here perhaps this even ing, has aboard two young men whose names are familiar to all interested to any extent in Y. M. C. A. work. The gentlemen are R. C Lewis and J. M. Gailey. They have both been in the student volunteer movement. Mr. Gai ley is famous as a Princeton football player. If the China be in port at S o'clock this evening, there will be a meeting at the Y." M. C. A. assembly hall and addresses will be made by both Mr. Lewis and Mr. Gailey. A Full Line Of all descriptions of carriages came to Honolulu by the Zealandia.

Excited Woman Weeping Child ren Angry .Man. At about 6:30 last evening, the tele phone bell at the police station rang as if there was murder being committed somewhere, and a female voice prayed that an officer be sent at once to the corner of Keeaumoku and Wilder streets at once. Siie did not mention the nature of the trouble. Officer Lam bert was dispatched, and upon arrival, found a rather am jsing state of affairs. The woman, whose name the officer neglected, in the excitement of the mo ment to ascertain, pointed to J. Hum burg's yard, and then began her story. It seems that her children had gone for a stroll, and had taken along with them their dog. They saw a goat in Mr. Hamburg's yard and went in to have a little fun. As soon as the dog saiw the goat, he made a run and a jump, and succeeded in fastening his teeth in one of the hind legs, of what he supposed, to be Jus enemy. There wa: a panic at once, and the children ran oil" for their home, leaving the two animals to settle the difference among themselves. The father of the children became angry, and threatened to kill ithe dog. This was not all. He said that lie would make the family eat the goat, al though that animal had not yet been killed. This frightened the mother, and the outcome as the telephone message received at the police station. There were no arrests, and as a com promise, the father promised to give away the dog. NEW BOOKS.

Kaapana, Kapa'ki and Moke, were arrested for assault and battery on Lio. The men had all been drinking swipes at Nio lopa, and were in a glorious, hilarious state, when they walked down ithe street toward town. A discussion arose and, as usual, a fight ensued. The three others jumped at poor Lio, and one of the gang bit a part of Lio's nose off, so that he will be disfigured for life. Lio was game, and stood off his assailants until a police officer arrived, when the three men were taken to the police sta tion. Niolopa, above the cemetery, has al ways been a notorious locality for swipes. A visit to the place was paid by the owner not a long while ago, and the people stopped the manufacture for a time. That was about a year ago. Of late, they have begun again and the next thing will be a visit from Detec tive Kaapa and his men. Moving a House. Some natives with a house on wheels had the right of way on Emma, Ala kea and King streets several hours yes terday. The house was brought from the premises of Mrs. Lack, near the home cf President Dole. It was haul ed along by numerous pairs of bul locks. There was quite a halt at the intersection of Alakea and King and again on King, "just Ewa of the Nuu anu stream. During the several rests the Tram service was interfered with badly. The house is to he placed in Iwilei. ALL LEATHER. That is the one essential point that should be considered in buying VALISES SATCH ELS It's false economy to buy one of paper, 01 imitation leather.
