The Legislative Assembly.. -yesterday had a rather "heated term," if we may use an American phrase, on tlie con-mJeratiuii of a resolution proposed hy Mr. Thurston, instructing the Minister of the Interior to withdraw from sale the lease of 1,050 acrea of land at llakalau, advertised by the late Minister of that department to Iks sol.t to-day. Mr. Kau-lukou made an addition to the resolu tion, to the effect that the Minister le instructed to have it surveyed in Binall farm sections and offered for settlement under the Homestead Act. The innt appeared to be that with the exception of about 150 acres suited for cane, tho rest was timber land, unfit for cultivation ; and that the late Minister of the Interior had exercised his discretion, and thought that the public interests would re best served by the sale if the least of the projerty as a whole. In tliisi view, after investigation. His Kxcellency Mr. Gibson concurred; and he thought the sale should proceed, although if the House passed the resolution he would pay resjiect to such an expression of opinion. A good deal of cheap nentiment was made out of the settlement olicy of the Homestead law, w ithout any reference to the Kjei i.il merits of this particular case. Hi Kxcellency the Attorney General rorited the facts, and naid that the discretion' rested with the Minister of the Interior under the law, and he would advise the sale to proceed. If the siijv porters of the resolution were in earnest they should have introduced a measure early in the session, providing that all land reverting to the Government um the expiration of the lease, or by forfeiture through breach of covenant as in tlii! ease, should be reserved for settlement under the Homestead law. They had not done bo, and he therefore objected to an attempt to use the machinery of the I-egislature under cover of a general law to secure private ends. ' This remark brought up Mr. Thurstcn, who charged the Attorney General with wearing the collar of Colonel Sprockets in the House, and with having acted as that gentleman! attorney in .respect of thid land, claiming for himself the most perfect liberty and disinterestedness. The Attorney General replied that although he had appeared for Colonel Sprockets in the Courts of California and in this Kingdom also, he had not advised him in this transaction, nor was he his mouthpiece either in or out of the House. It was a simple question of law, and a resolution of the House could not void a statute. He charged that the attorney for Mr. Davies, who was a member of the House, lodged a protest but failed to stop the sale, and now Mr. Thurston moved this resolution for him to effect the same object through the Legislature. Mr. Thurston denied this, and stated that Mr. Dole was the attorney of Davies, and that he himself bad nothing to with it. This controversy became rather ier-soD-il, and originated in the rude attack by 'Mr. Thurston upon the Attorney General. If the resolution was not intended to serve private ends by taking advantage of the Homestead law, the history of the case, as detailed in the written statement of the Minister of the Interior in reply to an order of the House some time ago, clearly laid the foundation for such an inference. Mr. Thurston felt aggrieved at this general comment upon the entire business, but he might have defended himself without the coarse attack upon His Kxcellency Mr. Dare. There appeared to le a misunderstanding upon both sides, and to allow the gentlemen time for reflection the House took a recess at noon. Cjxm reassembling, the resolution was defeated by a vote of nineteen to ten, it appearing that public interests were being properly guarded, and that the land iu question was not available to any great extent for settlement. An important report was presented by the Finance Committee on the Appro priation bill, which was ordered to be i considered in Committee of the Whole ! when that bill is under consideration. It will be found in our report of Legislative proceedings in to-day's paper. Progress was made with the Appropriation bill in committee. The sched ules of the Interior and Finance Departments were nearly finished. The committee went back to the Foreign Department, but stopped at the vote of $30,000 expense of foreign missions. This vote was opposed as unnecessary by Messrs. Brown and Thurston. Mr. Dickey moved that it be reduced to $6,000, a proposal which Hon. C. Ii. Bishop supported ; and Mr. Castle moved that it pass at 10,000. His Excellency Mr. Gibson made a strong speech in favor of the vote of $30,000, which is $20,000 less than was originally proposed. He pointed out that the status of the Hawaiian Kingdom necessitated the expenditure of money to give effect to the national policy which had been recognized by the Great Powers as morally obligatory upon it in the Pacific. The committee rejorted progress and asked leave to sit again before a decision was come to upon the vote. A resume of the entire proceedings will be found in our Legislative report. THE WORK OF THE SESSION. LOCAL AND GENERAL. ELECTRIC LIGHT. -Dct rliif Lb ur: The work of the session is progressing slowly, still some progress is being made The most important bill before it is ua questionably the Internal Tax bill, and it should le disposed of in committee to-day, if possible. The first and second sections embody the principles of taxation. Only one of these remains for approval and it has been exhaustively debated already. Little more can be said on the subject than has been pre sented, and therefore further debate can only originate in a design to waste time and kill the proposed law by delays which would wear out the patience of the Legislature. The object of the bill undoubtedly An to increase the revenue by adjusting And equalizing taxation, without adding to the burdens of the people. This is a laudable object. Mr. Castle said in committee on the bill on Tuesday last that he was prepared for increased tax ation if necessary. The actual require ments of the country show that this is not necessary if all who possess property paid their fair quota of taxation. Ex perience proves that it is not alwaj-s safe to depend upon a high conscien tiousness on the part of taxpayers, and therefore the law should be so framed as to prevent the evasion of taxes to any great extent. This obviously is the rea son why the bill was introduced, anil it is a sufficient reason for passing it. We trust therefore that the majority will not fail to do so. The Appropriation bill stands next in importance. It provides money for car rying on the Government. Retrenchment has been recommended by His Majesty the King, and reduced estimates have been presented to the Assembly. It is impossible to say at present how-far a retrenchment policy has been adhered to. This will best be understood when the Appropriation bill is reported back from the Committee of the Whole. New votes have been added to a considerable amount, and of these it may be said that hardly one of them if unnecessary. Indeed, much more might be ..advantageously "done in the way of providing safe landings and wharves, in building bridges, and opening and improving roads. But the want of money stares the Administration and the Legislature in the face. Hence thj necessity for enacting the Internal Tax bill, and probably also some other revenue-producing measure. If this duty be neglected the Legislature may only blame itself if tho revenue falls short of the requirements under the Appropriation Act. And here it may be pertinent to remark that the session has advanced so far that it is not desirable to have any further delays in the consideration of the Appropriation bill. The season is advancing, and it is time the members of the Legislature were returning to their homes to attend to their important local duties. Among other important bills before the Legislature is one relating to the registration of shipping. This bill should become law. It adopts the American and English rule of measurement for registration. It will make a difference of about forty per cent in favor of shipowners, and as it w ill apply to coasters as well as to ocean-going steam and sailing vessels, the hipping interests of the country as a whole will be lienefitted. There are other bills of more or less importance before the House, but these three appear to us to be absolutely necessary from a fiscal and economic standpoint. Doubtless there will be the usual "slaughter of the innocents" at the finish, but we need not now anticipate results. Kojal SelitKl Exhibit ion.

Five lamps ! had been placed in position under the direction of Mr. C. O. Berger, as follows : One at the Palace, one at the Government Building, one on Richard street in front of the Palace gate, and two on King street. The engine at the foundry was started the night before and the connections were tested and a private exhibition of the lights was given. Shortly after 7 o'clock last night the electricity was turned on and as soon as darkness increased the vicinity of palace Square was flooded with a soft bit brilliant light, which turned the night into day. The exhibition was wll advertised, and by 7:30 o'clock the streets leading to Palace Square were filled with moving people. By 8 o'clock an immense crowd had gathered. Before 9 o'clock the Royal Hawaiian Military Band commenced playing and THE MILITARY COMPANIES Soon marched into the Square according to announcement. The battalion drill took place under the command of His Majesty the King. The volunteer companies were out in .full force, with the exception of the Honolulu Rifles, ami all presented a fine appearance. The evolutions of the battalion could be clearly seen by the aid of the electric lights, and the different companies received re peated applause from the large concourse of spectators. After the drill, the companies stacked arms and adjourned to the Government Building grounds, where a TKA PARTY Was given, under the auspices of ths Society for the Education of Hawaiian Children, organized by Her Royal Highness the Princess Liliuokalani and Her Royal Highness the Princess Like-like. The Palace was brightly illuminated, and the large crowd movingamong the trees and tents, which had beer, erected, made a pretty picture.

CRAZED BY FREAKS. Tit Madness of Andre GUI, the Well-' Known Caricaturist. Cor. Philadelphia Times. Andre Gill, one of the best-known and most widely popular of modern French caricaturists, is now over a twelvemonth an inmate of the lunatic asylum of Char- enton, and I hear from some of his intimate menus tnat but slight hopes are entertained of his ultimate recovery. Some time aeo a change for the better having taken place m nis condition, lie was, on medical advice allowed to return to his home and resume hi usual" occupations; but- his liberty-geemed only to have aggravated the peculiar disease of which he is the victim. Scarcely had h set his foot on the boulevards, when he indulged to such an extent in champagne and in different other intoxicating beverages, that he had to be carried to a hospital, where he battled between life and death for several days. When, however, he was able to live he hired a cab and led a bacchanalian life for several days and nights, spending some thousands of francs in the wildest freaks and orgies, until finally his friends had again to interfere, and he was again dispatched to Charenton, a greater lunatic than ever. Gill's madness is what French medical men call folie des grandeurs Wardens who are brought into daily communication with the unfortunate artist assert that he is constantly proclaiming himself in his cell "King of the Earth and Emperor of the Seas." He is fully convinced that he has supreme powers over the universe, and is very anxious in exacting homage from friends who visit him. Gill's insanity was due principally to the overdose of flattery he had to swallow. He found himself on a giddy eminence that turned bis head, bringing about those eccentricities of character which afterwards terminated o fatally. He was the lion of caricaturists in Paris. Political celebrities sought his acquaintance, and were kindly disposed towards him, in order that his caricatures nf themselves should be rther favorable Than otherwise. Actors and actresses, literary men and publicists, thronged around him and encouraged his efforts so much so that Gill fairly believed himself to be the only man in all the world capable of turning out a respectabl cartoon. I remember seeing in the Paris Sulon some ten years ago a remarkable painting of poor Gill's representing & fool struggling with folly, which the critics of the hour considered a masterpiece in itself. Gill was half a fool himself while he wa? working at the tableau, and shortly afterwards became an almost hopeless victim to 'hefulif. des grandeurs. Andre Gill was the pseudonym assumed ty the artist at the commencement of his eareer. His real name is Louis Alexandre Gosset de Guines. He was born in Pari and prosecuted his studies at Sainte Barbe. Sugar Industry of Java. At the rate of increase which has been going on for the past few years, Java will soon produce as much sugar as Cuba. The sugar-planters of Java appear to be making money in spite of tha low prices now obtaining, and claim that it is a more profitable crop than coffee. There are only bout 100 sugar-mills In Java, but the land suited to the cultivation of the sugarcane la practically unlimited. Chicago Times. The American Buffalo Nearly Extinct.
