Democrats Shake Hands All
Around, but Anti-Jarrett
. Resolution Bobs Up
..There was a "harmony meeting"'
of the Democrats yesterday at juoon
in the offices of Mayor Fern.
- It was an attempt to patch up a
truce between L. L. McCandless, the
boss of the party, and Sheriffff Jar
rett and eputy Rose. According to
reports, MDcCandless shook hands all
around and' Jarrett shook hapds all
around, likewise Rose, and all agreed
to eliminate "Soap-Box" Barron and
their own political differences.
On top of this, McCandless ap
peared at a meeting of the Demo
cratic club of the tenth precinct,
Fourth district, with Barron.
The meeting passed, according to
the Star-Bulletin's information, a res
ilution djrected against Jarrett and
Rose. McCandless' and Barron's
presence gave rise to the rumor that
they are partly responsible for this
resolution, but this was denied today
by a Democrat who is no friend of
McCandless, but who says that JJnk
is really trying to pull in with Jar
rett now that election's coming on.
Anyway, both Jarrett's and Link's
friends are sore. V
The Bourbon territorial central com
mittee will hold aV meeting tonight at
the McCandless building quarters,
Pauahi street, to discuss a general
ratification meeting. ; The Democratic
leaders today declared Chat Barron,
the alleged disturbing element in the
party, will be emphatically suppress
ed, andone went so? far as ' to say
that he will be ejected from the room.
Barron says he has a good right to
go, and that he will go. And the Jar-rett-McCandless
fight Isn't patched up
yet among the followers of the sheriff
and the boss. : -

N. Y. LIFE SUES
Suit for $2807.32, the amount of tax 1
paid to the Territory on business done ,
in the Islands during the year. 1911, 1
has been filed in Circuit Court against
Henry Hapai, deputy insurance com
missioner, by the New York LKe In
It is a dispute arising between the
deputy commissioner and the insur
ance company over the question of
amount of return premium with which
the former shall be credited. Hapai,
after long and careful figuring, decided!
that the sum which the New York
Life claims to have returned to its
policyholders in the Territory in 1911
was $43,483.85 more than the amount
actually received by Vhe said policy
holders, and declined1 to deduct that
amount from the company's gross re
ceipts, on which the 2 per cent, taxa
tion is based.
The 2 per cent, tax on the return
premium amounted to $869.67. This
is part of the company's total tax of
$2807.32, and as a result of the dif
ference of opinion the New York Life
paid up under protest.
Now, because or wnat 11 asserts is
an error on the deputy insurance com
missioner's part, the plaintiff demands
the return of the entire tax paid into
the Territorial treasury. The com
plaint, filed this morning by Attorney

Hapai contends that the insurance
companies have been inclined to 'fig

number of return premiums that do
not rightly belong in the account as a
part of the year's business. He says
that some of them are on the business
of former years and do not belong
with the return premiums of 1911.

LONDON, Eng., July, 25.-ConsIder-able
interest is taken here in the news
from ; Washington that' negotiations
are passing between the British f and
American Governments; regarding the
Panama Canal bill The Times saysH
We do not believe, that anything
that may arise from the discussion on
thti other side cannot be settled by
friendly' conference. The-British gov
ernment is well advised to ask con
sideration of its views at once. "Not
Great" Britain alone, but the whole
empire, is concerned. , Canada is con
cerned in a special degree. ' f
'The ; amicable settlement In . recent
times of all outstanding questions be
tween the empire' and the republic is
a convincing sign that this new proth-.
Iem will be solved in the same way.
If diplomacy should find it too com
plex we can always take it, like the
ancient controversy over the Atlantic
fisheries,' to the arbitration tribunal
at The Hague. Failing other meth
ods, such a solution would be a fitting
testimony to the sincerity to a hun
dred years of peace." $
