S It is with a feeling of relief tnat the people generally note the
conservative estimate which the Senate Committee made with ref
erence to the salaries of the county officers. With due defereace
to the opinion of the Committee however, the New s feels inclined
to suggest that the salaries of nhe sheriff of Oahu. fixed ut $3,000,
and the sheriff of Maui, $2,000 are too small. If the duties of sher
iffs on the Islands are commensurate with those of sheriffs on the
mainland, 4,000 for the slieriff of Oahu and $3,000 foi the sheriff of
Maui would not be too larce, owing to the numerous and contin
ual expenses entailed on those offices. In this connection it is non
sense to talk about a salary of $50 per month for Supervisors. The
men whom Maui will want for supervisors are not men who
would attach much imporiance to a salary of $50 a month, and if
the method of fixing their compensation at say $5,00 per day of
actual service in board sessions, and fair mileage were adopted, as
is the almost universal custom in the states, just as good, if not
better material could be secured in the way of supervisors to
transact our county business.
lOi Although many Honolulu knockers insist that the county bill
vill not he passed at this session, yet there is no doubt not only that
it will pass but it -will be also be signed by the governor, and duly
become the law of the land. While it has seemed that the measure
has been too long delayed, yet as
member of the legislature who is not thoroughly familiar with the
bill, and when the time comes to vote, the finish will be short,
sharp and decisive. 'Ihere will be some radicul differences of opin
ions, but there will be a general spirit of give and take, and all dif
ferences will dissipate like mist when it comes to a final vote. Of
course Ihe bill will not be perfect, and every future legislature
will amend and change it, but tne bill w ill pass.
$3 There is more or less talk in Honolulu papers just now about
"retaliatory measures" and retaliatory acts as between the Senate
and the House now in session. Of course there may be one or two
men in each body with more mouth than brains, but the News ac
: rcords to the legislature as a body, the credit of possessing too
much sense and dignity to indulge in such child's play as retaliation.
Of course men will naturally and nonestly differ in their opinions,
and it is not to be supposed that both bodies will be inclined at
first to view all u.easures ahke. But the News is readv to guarap
tee that there will be no such 'retaliation" by either branch of the
legislature, as will jeopardize the passage of proper measures.
QJ All things considered, the amount appropriated by the legis.
latere for exhibition purposes at the St. Louis World's Fair is in
adequate. Better no exhibition at all than one which does not
fa'rly represent the needs, productions and possibilities of the
Islands. Ac an advertising medium for the purpose of bringing
tourists, money and live men to the Islands, the opportunity is a
golden one. and penny-wise economy in the matter is simply a
waste of money, consequently the appropriation should be increas
ed to an amount sufficient to unable Hawaii nei to do justice to her
self in the matter of an attractive display at the Exhibition,
jj The narrow escape from a disastrous fire at the county jail on
last Friday brings close home to the people of Wailuku the urgent
need for means of fighting fires. Had the fire broken out, the cit
izens of Wailuku would have been compelled to stand idly by and
soo thousands of dollars worth of property destroyed, while out
on the street is a water main with abundant water supply and
pressure enough to have thrown water over th tops of all the
buildings in the vicinity. Nothing but plenty of hose and a hose
wcj.rt and hydrants are needed to secure Wailuku from fires, and it
is criminal to neglect these safeguards any longer. ;
jQ; A;lessou should bo read to the lower house of the legislature,
with refereuce to the manner in which they have allowed a tew
lunkheads to w'aste their time in the consideration of trivial RRC,
indifferent matters,' Our future government depends much on the
work of this legislature, and there are so many grave and serious
matters to be weighed and decided, that a waste-basket committee
should be appointed to whom should be incontinently referred all
freak measures, and if the authors of such measures become ob
streperous,, the House should rise up as a body, and simply sit
down on them.
j5 ' Speaker Fred Beckley is a Jewel on occasions, even if he
does insist that he is a home ruler. When Representative Kelilnol
spoke before he thought, the other
anese hack nuisance on Maui, Mr.
an Impassioned speech, clearly pointed out the evils under which
legitimate hack men on Maui are groaning, and thanks be, even
Mr. Keliinoi saw the point, and dropped fuither opposition.
In a leDgthy communication recently published in the Bulle
tin, in favpr of Lahaina for the county seat, Ex-Senator William
White justly criticises the proposed road from Wailuku to Kihei,
through the sand-hills. Now, as a matter of fact there is only one
man in Wailuku who has seriously urged this useless and needless
road, and by a very singular coincidence, he is the only man. in
Wailuku who favors Lahaina as tho county seat.
JSs . The Islands are already beginning to taste the fruits of their
efforts to increase tourist travel, and this should stimulate those
interested, in making a united effort to; secure a large tide1 of tour-
'st travel, which is to be-had-by

The practice ot speciilatiPK in thea

"To whom could I sell thein?" ask

replied Porcher. "And what would
you do wiih them?" asked Dumas.
That's my business," replied the bar
ber, continuing to lathe the bronze
face of the famous story teller.
"But-1 give vou tickets whenever
ou ask for them," said Dumas. "Ah!
One fr two are not sufficient for mv
purpose," responded Porcher. "I
must have all your tickets, and every
day too." And you will pay for
them?', said the dramatist. "Cash,"
was the simple yet practlcle reply.
Dumas at that rromcnt was very
badly in need of money, so he at once
concluded the bargain. Porcher, who
shortly after this gave up shaving
and cutting hair, made similar bar

became rich. '
He was a maa who was making t50

with his fiancee in an uptown restau

followed by black coffee and wafers.
The man, who coi'ld hare afforded

A clerk who was kept busy earn
ing h's salary of $18 took his sweet
heart to an expensive seaside rescrt.
It took twenty minutes to decide
what they wanted to eat. Finally
the order came, heaped high up on a
la rye tray.
At the lady's place the waiter de
posited roast beef, mashed potatoes,
chicken croquettes, with peas, a
salad of lettuce and potatoes and a
cup of coffee. :
The man, wondering how he, could
get a winter overcoat, ate a porter

potatoes, green corn and coffeo.
For deserf they had ice cream and
fancy cakes, with more coffee. The
