A. G. M. Robertson, -Minister Cooper replied as follows: 1. "The Government ihas requested the Hawaiian Commercial & Suga.r Co. to furnish a plan of the wnarr or pier which they propose to erect at Kahu- lui harbor, (Maui, and to cease opera tions until the Government shall have had an opportunity to decide whether may have been heretofore granted oy the Government to individuals. "The title to the lands of the Youman's estate so called, a portion of which is now being filled by the Government, is covered by L. C. A. 11225, R. P. 1S791. to Williams Lee; this patent is by metes and bounds and fixed monuments. A copy of the last letter of the De partment, to General A. S. Hartwell, attorney for the Hawaiian Commercial fr. Susrar Co.. is transmitted herewith: "The Government claims tne ownership of all lands in the Republic below hish water mark, excepting only such as a portion of Honolulu narbor below hiffh water mark. 3. "So far as the Department is in formed the Hawaiian Commercial Ac Susrar Co. claim the right to erect a pier at Kahului by reason cf the grant to Claus Spreckels, being grant -No 3343. The initial point in the descrip tion of this property is at the sea ad- ioininer HamakuaDoko. and the metes and bounds are complete as far as tne sea adjoining the .land of waienu, thence the boundary runs along the seashore to the initial point. ine Government claims that this conveys no land below high water mark and this is the distinction between the title of the land belonging to the You man's estate and the title of the land u-nnn which the Hawaiian Commer cial & Sugar Co. are erecting a wharf. 4. "The Government tor many years has maintained us junsuiaiuu f C T T over the entire watenront ol nouu- lu'.u harbor and no wharves have been erected by private persons without previous sanction from the Govern ment. "If private parties have erected wharves or landings at ofcaer points, it has been, so far as I am aware, with out either permission or objection on the part of the Government. "The Government claims the right to object to the maintenance of anv wharf or pier now built upon land .below high water mark except in such cases as the title of suca land mav have been granted iy a previous conveyances from the Government. "For similar, reasons the Govern ment claims the right to object to oi nrevent the erection of any wharf or pier wherever the rights of the people require sucii action. Ren. L,oebenstein presented the re- nnrf. of the Committee on Public Iands on the concurrent resolution on wharf matters, introduced by Rep. Robert son and recommending adoption with the following additional c'ausv: 'Be it farther Resolved, That i: is T.ie ?-n.e of the Legislature of the Republic of Hawaii that th-? Executive should forthwith take the necessary steps to condense the property design ed in the deed from Kate Lee Youmane to the Minister cf the Interior under the right of Eminent Domain." Tiis was the signal for a discussion that took up the rest of the time until noon. Rep. Robertson was the first to take the fioor. He recommended the adoption cf the resolution with the addition proposed by the committee. Mr. Robertson repeated the arguments in favor of the resolution, ordering the Government to cease the work now going on in the vicinity o: the old fishmarket wharf, and enlarged some what upon these. 'He was immediate ly followed by Minister Cooper who defined the position of the Govern ment and said that if we House passed the resolution it would be the first , hlow to the policy instituted of gaining control of the wharves. It would do more. It would simply open the way for private parties to step in and gain that control. In case the Courts found that the Government could not use the situations, (which would result in case of the passage of the resolution), private parties would be allowed to step in. Minister Cooper here referred to the O. R. & .L Co. and the attempts of that corporation to get hold of cer- j tain wharf privileges and spoke of the entire command at the present time of the key to the situation, by the Gov ernment. The proposition of that cor poration had been to build narrow wharves, not at all suited to general use. (Minister Damon was the next to take the floor and, in beginning his remarks, stated that the Railroad Company had made $25,000 hy the wiharf now under its control. This corporation had made an attempt to fight the Government. It had been the first attempt on the part of a corpora tion and he for his part intended to take off his coat and fight for the rights of the Government. That was the position he took. Was the Gov ernment or a corporation at the head of affairs in this country? The Gov ernment surely should be. He was perfectly cognizant of the great bene fits the work of Mr. Dillingham thad done for the country and he was sure that at some future day, a tall and handsome monument would be erected to him. Mr. Dillingham wculd reap a handsome sum from his work. Ac cording to Mr. Dillingham's plan, pub lished in the lAdvertiser in January, ships could not get in at the Ewa side of -the harbor at all. They could do this on paper but not in the water. To relinquish 'the work now was to give Dillingham the say. 'Next came a cross fire from various members of the House, some of whom accused the supporters of the resolu tion of undue haste and insumcient deliberation on a matter so .important. This was vigorously objected to, one member referring to a part ot the back row of the House as the "fag end of the hind row." Finally Rep. Robertson withdrew his motion to adopt the resolution of and it was agreed that the report ot the committee on the matter should be referred to the Printing Commit ree with instructions that the report of the committee of the Legislature of 1S90 be printed together with the re port. This was through tne sugges tion of Minister Cooper, who said that the policy of the Government in re- rmr-A r Vio matter of wharves at the Ct 1 V 1 L"- A Ewa side of the harbor was based on this report. Ren Posue reported for the special committee to whom 'had been referred the matter of an electric street ran- wav in Hilo. The committee had care- Tomorrow An Uncertainty!

The commit tee recommended that the bill be laid upon the table. This was objected to by certain of the . itepresenuiuvt;3 uu cup-e-psted that it might be well to gne the promoters of the proposed scheme, a chance to express their iaeas on me subject. The majority of the House was not in favor of this and the re port of the committee was adopteu. Recess until 1:30 p. m. AFTERNOON SESSION.
