On Tuesday morning the sub com

The appropriations and recom
mendations approved for the sixth
precinct, Wailuku, are omitted from
the above list fcr the reason that
they are practically the same that
were recommended by a recent
citizen's meeting in Wailuku, a list
of which has already been published
in the News.
The sub committee and legislators
had decided on an appropriation of
$4,000 for removing the Waihee
school and repairing the teachers'
cottage, but upon the strongly urged
suggestiot) of Mr. King, they recon-
idered the matter and decided upon
a new school building and teachers'
cottage at a cost of $4,000.
Many matters came before the
committee which as they belong to
the several Departments were not
considered although they were
meritorious. Many of the outside
precincts asked for a repeal or modi
fication of the wide tire law.
The matter of a modification of the
registration law was discussed, and
although it was overlooked so far as
recommendation was concerned.
still the sub committee and the legis
lators expressed themselves strongly
in favor of such modification, the idea
being to appoir.t registration agents
n eace district, the District Magis
tate of each district being one of the
District Board of Registration.
There is much mer't in the idea, and
when brought up in the legislature
will meet general approval. The pro
per place for such a law however is
probably in the proposed county act,
and if so, it should be placed there.
