Dear Sir: The Secretary Disc Plow 1 pur
chased from you is giving us satisfaction. We
are using it to plow under a crop of lupins. 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.

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.
