Report of Commission.
Yesterday's mail brought a fairly
lull synopsis of the report of the
Senatorial Commission, which is even
more radical than the syllabus which
was printed last week indicated.
The recommendations of the com
mission with reference to public
lands and to the matter of establish
ing a leprosaria are forceably made
and there is not much reason to be
lieve that any protests from here
will break their force, or prevent
their enactment. They strongly crit
icise the present construction of the
teriitorial supreme court, the large
salaries paid to officials, and the
leasing of lands at under valuations.
Favorably mention is made of the
claim of the late Queen Liliuokalani,
and local county and municipal gov
ernment is strongly urged. The ro
ceut corruption of territorial officials
is severely touched upon, and the
labor question is largely discussed,
especially in its bearing on the im
portation of Chinese, which is favor
ed by Seuntor Burton. The entire re
port will strike a sensitive nerve in
congress,- which will result in a large
amount of good and some bad legis
lation for the Islands at the present
session of congress.
When the Ship Comes In.
The Alice Kimball soon due in
Kahului harbor has on board 125,000
feet of lumber and a lot ot general
merchandise brought down for sale.
The lumber cost from eight to ten
dollars per M. at Gray' Harbor, and
as it will be landed through the surf,
on the beach road, it wlll- be sold
reasonably. A large reduction is
also piomised in the price of gro
ceries. If the present venture proves
successfnl, the Alice Kimball will
engago regularly in trade between
the Islands and the Coast.
