HONOLULU, Sept. 19. J. P
Cooke was closeted with Governor
Carter and Treasurer Campbell
yesterday aftornoon. Mr. Cooke
wont; to tho Capitol to confer on
tho question of the disposition of
certain taxes collected in the, vari
ous islands, he being of tho opinion
that such taxes, so collected should
bo devoted to the islands yielding
"For instance," said Mr. Cooke
to an Advertiser man beforo going
into the Robin's-Egg Blue room,
"tho income taxes for the Maui
plantations are returned in Hono
lulu. Therofore, Maui does not got
the benefit of these special taxes.
It is practically a case of Maui pay
ing over taxes for the maintenance
of the county of Oahu.
''With county government estab
lished I think it is tho right thing
that tho taxes should be given to
tho counties producing them. Tho
trouble lies in tho fact that tho law
requires the returns to bo made in
the city or place where tho offices
of the corporations are located.
"If tho worst comes to the. worst
the plantations, say on Maui,
might chango the location of their
offices from Honolulu to Maui,
merely maintaining an agency
here. In that way they might get
the benefit of these special taxes."
Mr. Cooke stated his views on tho
loan funds. He has had talks be
fore with the Governor over the
question of building public works
according to tho reading of the
legislative acts providing for the
disposition of loan fund money,
lho Governor had told him that
the spending of the money on such
works as new wharves, etc., would
benefit the Territory, in some in
stances, moro than other works,
and would pay for themselves in a
very few years, naturally, uir.
Cooke looks to see funds spent on
Maui in which he is especially in
HONOLULU. Sept. 15. Undor
the contemplated bond issue of
$750,000, all of tho various island
appropriations made by tho last
legislature, amounting to over a
million dollars, are to bo ignored.
The governor's plan is to carry out
tho general Territorial appropria
tions and ignore the others.
The appropriation bill set aside
over $800,000 for these general
appropriations, but some items
will bo cut out from them, to bring
tho total down to $750,000 and to
allow for adding $6,000 for tho
leper boys' home. The item of
$800,000, for extension of wharf
system, Honolulu, may bo cut out
or reduced, in order to allow for
somo road improvements. In tho
list of appropriations mudo by the
legislature, as given hereafter, tho
items which it is proposed to spend
are those under the genoral head.
Official Document Has Not
Those to bo ignored aro all under
4he headings of tho different coun
It is not clear from tile Gov
omor's letter to the Treasurer
just which items aro cut out, but
presumably all after tho $8G1,
1G6 footing, and somo that is in
cluded in that will have to be cut
out to bring tho total down to

CZAR NICHOLAS WILL PAY
NEW YORK, Sept. 8. A spe
cial to tho World from London
says: It is known porfectly well
at tho Japaneso Legation hero that
a Becrot treaty has been made be
tween the Czar of Russia and tho
Emperor of Japan, despite diplo
matic denials. Thcso facts con
cerning tho treaty, the way by
which it was reached and its pur
poses can bo stated on tho highest
Tho Kaiser advised tho Czar to
mnko a secret treaty when thoy
met on the yacht m tho Baltic sea.
Tho intermediaries in the negotia
tions were the Japaneso Minister
at London and tho German Em
bassador at St. Petersburg. King
Edward helped jn tho making of
. It provides that the Czar of Ilus
sia tho Czar, not tho empire
shall pay $500,000,000 indemnity
to Japan in five years, less the
amount which Russia will pay
Japan for the care and mainten-
flTIPft of T?tlfiQtnn nri'cnnnra rf rn
$100,000,000 as provided in tho
treaty of Portsmouth.
It is reported also that Ilussia
agrees in the treaty to givo Japan
a free hand in China, though this
point is not so certain as tho other.
Tho compact was made without
tho knowledge of Komura and
Cable dispatches state that when
Do Martens took the steamor from
New York yesterday ho admitted
tho secret treaty is in existence.
De Martens never would have
dared to mako tho acknowledg.
ment without his sovereign's per
mission. It is more than likely
that Do Martens was ordered to
drop, a hint about tho treaty and
thus, as well be seen, relievo the
Emperor of Japan from a most
embarassing position at home.
PAUIS, September 7. Although
copies of tho Anglo-Japanese treaty
have not yet reached the powers,
its principal changes from the
former treaty aro known in diplo
matic quarters. One of the high
est of these says that the principal
now features are tho following:
First Tho provision in tho old
treaty making the alliance appli
cable only to the Chinese littoral is
changed so that tho now provision
makes the alliance applicable to all
Asia up to the line crossing Persia
from northio south indicated by
tho fifty-first degreo of east longi
tude. The significance of this chango
is the inclusion of India and also
Indo-China, where Franco haB sus
pected Japan of having- designs.
Tho effect of the chango tends to
preserve the present status quo of
French authority in Indo-China
and the status quo of India.
Second Tho provision in the
old treaty making the alliance
operative if either ally is attacked
by two powers is changed so that
the alliance becomesleffective when
either is attacked by 0110 power.
Third Tho primary underlying
principle of tho treaty is dofensivo
and tho maintenance of existing
The foregoing changes cannot bo
stated as oflicial or authoritative,
but thoy aro given with positive
ness by thoso in a position to havo
