On this motion h? was supported by Senators Rice and Kauhane. His motion was lost and Senator Baldwin's motion to pass the bill at third reading, carried. The vote on this motion was the same as on the motion to indefinitely post pone. .Minister cooper repneu to the request of the Senate for all corres pondence with, the United States on the subject ot registry or vessels, ine .Minister read a letter from Minister Sewall, sent at the time of the China case, asking for a statement of the position of the Government on the subject. There was no other corres pondence with a foreign country. Min ister Cooper then stated the condition under the present registry law. In 1S'j3 orders were issued to consuls to discon tinue issuing provisional registers. There had never been a law to issue these registers. In July last, when news was received that the annexation treaty had been sent to the Senate, in structions were sent to the Consul General at San Francisco to communi cate with the consuls to issue no regis ters. Within a few days he received a communication from 'Minister Hatch in Washington advising that instruc tions issue to consuls to the same ef fect. Minister Hatch had been approached by the Chairman of the Senate Com mittee on Commerce who regretted that there was no clause in the an nexation treaty to prevent further registration of Hawaiian vessels. Min ister Sewall also communicated with the department, and had announced that he had heard from the Chairman of the Commerce Committee calling attention to the absence of any regis try regulation in the treaty. Minister Cooper said the policy of the Government has been in accord with the wishes of the friends of Ha waii. Annexation was by no means assured and it was ill-timed to say Hawaii should show her independence. If annexation should fail the Republic would get enough of independence. The emergency bridge and road bill passed third reading, as did also the House bill defining highways and re quiring abutting owners to build side walks. The loan and the special appropria tion bills passed second reading. The Public Lands Committee reported on several items, among which was an adverse report on the Diamond Head lighthouse. The item of $1500 to com plete the structure was increased by $2300 with directions to build a stone or brick foundation, allowing the iron 1 a 1 . rt c r r r i supports to stand. jn item 01 jo.uuu was added and sent to the Public Lands Committee for a new road on Maui. House bills relating to the disposi tion ot the school 'tax, tne muy on sake and claims against real estate nassed first reading, the last named goring to the Printing Committee. At 11:43 the Senate adjourned. - ; ;;y a:: a i; v'::n lim iting to Cv he same be i:i:?'.y pos: rva.l.

The reports of bc-:h the ; minority of the Public La: tee on Senate Bill In. rel trays recommending that laid on the table and indeJ: pontil. respectively, were were laid on the table to be with the bill. The majority report was ; "The object of the bill is the 'law with reference t the taking up est rays found upon Government roads, now confined t Honolulu, throughout the country. "We believe that the passage of the bill would work a hardship up.;n the graziers in many of the districts where large tracts of pasture land are un ieiicod, and also in cases where the reads run through pasture tracts. It would be unreasonable to force the owners of large tracts of laud through which a road runs to fence along both sides of the road in order to save their stock from being impounded. "Further, experience shows that cat tle frequently work their way through the fences, and shculd they do so with this bill in force" as law they be taken up and impounded to the inconvenience and expense of the owners, notwith standing there is no harm done to any body. "While it is well enough to have such a law for populous towns, we see no good reason for extending it to pas toral districts." The minority report was cf the same nature. House Bill CO, relating to the impor tation and sale of opium read third time and further consideration defer red one week from date. Senate Bill 24 read second time by title and referred to the Judiciary Committee. House Bill 71, relating to withdrawal of alcohol for the Queen's Hospital, read by title and referred to the Com mittee on Commerce. House Bill CG, relating to assault and batery, read second time and passed. Third reading set for Wednesday. Second reading 'of Senate Bill IS, relating to pounds and estrays. Major ity report recommending that the bill be laid on the table, adopted. Rep. Gear addressed the following questions to the acting Minister of the Interior: (Will you kindly furnish the House of Representatives with a list of the bidders and the amounts bid for ex cavating the hard coral in a slip to be constructed in the harbor of Hono lulu (Richards street slip).

Robertson reported for the Ju diciary Committee, on House Bid Cu, amending Chapter 9 of the Penal Code as follows: "The only amendment contained in the bill to the existing law, is to add after the word "imprisonment the words "at hard labor." We find that imprisonment without labor is a rare provision in our laws, inconsistent with the present system of criminal admin istration, and believe that omission from the Penal Code of the words sup plied by this bill was an accident. Laid on the table to be considered with the bill. With a smile on his face Rep. Rich ards introduced the following resolution: Resolved, that the absence and tardi ness of certain members from .the ses sions of this House is detrimental to the nublic interests and derogatory to the dignity of the House. Resolved, that the clerk furnish a copy of this resolution to Representa tives Robertson, Kaeo, Atkinson, Wild er and Achi. As it happened, the representatives mentioned were absent when .the reso lution was written. When the vote to adopt the resolution was taken, Reps. Robertson and Kaeo were ab- spnr. The resolution was adopted by a vote of 7 to 5. Rep. Robertson presented a resolu tion for the Judiciary Committee as follows: Resolved, that the following items be appropriated in Senate Bill No. 3 fror the public treasury to reimburse per sons from whom taxes have been col lected upon property for which taxes had previously been collected as fol lows: RETURN OF DOUBLE TAXES. 1.
