They are three feet high and very thick. Your plow turns them completely under, at the same time plowing the land fourteen inches deep. . I feel satisfied that with this plow the draft for the same quantity and depth of work is as 6 to 8. That is, with the old plow, to do the same work, it takes 8 good mules; with your plow it takes only 6, and they are less tired at night. Please send me another plow by first schooner leaving for this. You are at liberty u us- this in any way you may see fit. Yours truly, A. LIDGATE.

REPAIRS PROMPTLY ATTENDED TO. eead the Hawaiian Gazette Committee rial." The second reading of House bill 8, income tax bill, was announced, this together with the reports of the ma jority and minority of the committee to whom the bill had been referred. ReD. Robertson made the principal speech of the morning on the subject. He stated that the history of the in come tax legislation in the country showed the almighty power of the al mighty dollar. The income tax law went through at the last session of the Legislature. At the beginning of this session he had been led to believe that the bill would go through. It now seemed that some of the members who had favored the bill in the begin ning had changed their minds. There seemed to be no apparent reason why. The bill was just as much needed now as at the oDening of the session. He was sorry to see that the influence of wealth had had its effect. The men who should Day the taxes, the rich, were one against the income tax bill. Rep. Robertson expressed his surprise that the Executive had not come out and asked for an increase in taxation. The debt of the country was already i?reat and the needs of the country were greater than the present revenue. it seemed as if any attempt to get more money was met with opposition. t was necessary to do something, lne matter of referring to a commission seemed only a subterfuge to set tne thing aside for two years. The thing to do was to put the law into opera tion as soon as possible. rIhe metnoa of exemption, over which there had been such a howl, had been changed. When Rep. Robertson sat down, T?en. Loebenstem arose in a ievw ui excitement and asked to speak on a question of privilege. Rep. Robertson had no right to make any insinuations. Rep. Richards jumped to the floor and began speaking at the same time witn Rep. Loebestein. Richards "We want fair play. Speaker "Sit down. Sit down." Loebenstein "I will when I am spoken to like a gentleman." Speaker "Sit down everyDoay. Richards "What right has he got in rv that the influence oi money was brouerht to bear. He is the man who has eot profit out or tne Din ai TPniiv and he exDects to get more. I move Mr. Robertson be allowed to ex- rinin retract or apologize. - . . Robertson "The members wno new upon the floor in such an outrageous manner '" Then came a storm that was worse than the first. The word "outrageous" had done its work. Rep. Kaai could be heard down at the Carter memorial stockade. His ex citement, was intense and he pounded the desk in the ardor of debate. The Speaker was all wrong about telling Rep. Loebenstein to sit down and Rep. Robertson had used language unbe coming a member of the House. Rep. Loebenstein became excited again and, pointing his finger at Speaker Kaulukou, stated that he would maintain the floor until a ruling had been made on his question of priv ilege. Speaker Kaulukou stated that he had the right when there was an ap pearance of disorderly conducts in the House to order every one to sit down. Rep. Loebenstein stated that it was a nnpstinn as to h-s having the floor that thev were talking about. The Speaker ruled that his time had gone Dy. upon voting on the appeal of Rep. Loeben stein, the ruling of the chair was not sustained. In making bis remarks on the appeal, previous to the taking of the vote, Speaker Kaulukou stated that there was no personal matter whatever so far as he was concerned. Rep. Loebenstein answered: "There is There is." Just here the Attorney-General made a few remarks telling of an instance in the House in Washington where there was a rumpus in a committee of the whole under a temporary chair man. It was necessary for Speaker Reed to take the chair. As soon as he had done this he told the members, most of whom were on the floor shak- inf their fists at each other, to sit A .If, " " down. There was quiet in a minute Nearlv evervone was liable to say things they did not mean, at times. He hoped the matter would cease and work proceed. At 12 m., House took a recess until 1:30 p. m. AFTERNOON SESSION. At the opening of the afternoon ses sion Speaker Kaulukou announced that Rep. Loebenstein had the floor. That member was not present and the Speaker announced that the House would wait. There was discussion on and objection to this for the space of about ten minutes, when Rep. Loeben stein arrived. He apologized for the delay, stating that personal business had kept him away. He would state, speaking on a question of privilege, that certain remarks made by Rep. Robertson may have been unintention al and made in the heat of debate. He moved that Rep. Robertson be given a chance to retract. Rep. Robertson then explained most satisfactorily the meaning of his re marks which made the objections of the members from Hilo superfluous. In regard to the statement he had made regarding the influence of wealth changing the vote. If that was the objectionable statement then there was no reason for him to retract. He was honestly and conscientiously stating what he believed. Wealthy men had been present at the meetings when the bill was concerned. There was no idea of bribery in his mind. As to Rep. Loebenstein's remark to the effect that he might have made his remarks in the head of debate he would most cer tainly deny. He was not in the habit f "flying off the handle" while speak ing. Rep. Loebenstein moved to accept the explanation. This was seconded by Rep. Richards. Carried. Sneaker Kaulukou "I am glad to see this matter amicably settled and sin- cerelv hope there will be no repetition. Certain members of the House became a little excited and the chair did too. Rep. Atkinson spoke briefly on the income tax matter. All theoretical writers on income tax were unanimous in saying that it was certainly the fairest tax on any nation. A man earning ten or twenty thousand dol lars a year, under present circum- ctanrps. naid a smaller amount of taxes than a man earning only $3,000. A laboring man making $20 per month was assessed nearly 3 per cent while there were men in Honolulu with large incomes, paying only one-half of 1 per cent.- ThP nvps and noes were taken on the motion to indefinitely postpone the bill. The vote stood 7 to 7. me Speaker voted against this and was applauded by the friends of the bill. The vote to postpone consideration of the parts of the majority and mino rity reports on the Joint Resolution stood 7 to 7. Speaker KauiuKOu voieu in favor of this. The bill was read section by sec- - 1 A. 1 tion. Ren. Richards movea me m&i section be laid on the table. Lost by the same vote as in the two previous motions. This motion to lay on the table was declared out of order. For five or six sections the enemies of the bill voted against the amendments made by the committee. There was a tie each time, the Speaker always voting for pass- o-e After a while there ceaseu iu any opposition, the negatives simpiy remaining silent. As a final attempt Rep. joeDensLeiu moved to strike out tne uue on.Min? clause. This was lost. The bill then passed second reading. Third reading for May 16th. House adjourned at 4:io p. m. jhS' !
