Talks On Vaults
C. H. Cooke, cashier on the Bank
of Hawaii, said to an Advertiser re
"I think that the securities and
records in the different banks and
other financial institutions of San
Francisco are probably safe in the
vaults. It is my impression that this
was the case in the Baltimore fire."
Some particulars of the Baltimore
fire which were given in a small spe
cial to the Advertiser would indicate
that the large financial institutions
found their papr wealth intact in
their vaults. This appears under
date of February 10, 1904, three days
after the fire started and the second
day after it had burned out:
"Financial institute hs are today
busily engaged in carting their secu
rities and funds to temporary offices
outside the confines of the burned dis
There is nothing in the account to
know that any loss was sustained
froiri heat penetration of vaults.
Willi rl'gUrd tc bWlihary Saf'S.lt is
a piece of wisdom, long ago learned
at cost, not to open the receptables
until they have been thoroughly cool
ed. If a safe is openei when hot like
an oven, its paper contents are apt
instantly to take tire. Adverl'ser.
Sort Of Nan M'Kenna Is
McKenna, the cable superintendent
at San Francisco who opened up
communication from that city (with
the rest of the world, is a Canadian
by birth. He has worked under Mr.
Gaines, Superintendent of the local
office, and is known among bis asso
ciates ns a man who never tires.
"If there was any trouble at the
office, McKenna was sure to turn up
and work right along until tne rush
or trouble wasover," said Mr. Gaines
McKenna is about 35 years old, 6
feet 1 'r.ch tall, and is married.
Mr. Gaines stated last evening that
McKenna bad not only saved all the
instruments in the town office, but
had got them all safely out to ttie
"hut," The only things be lacked werp
batteries. The instruments saved
were those ol the elaborate duplex
system, us well as the testing appa
ratus. When one sees the duplex in
struments in the local cable office, the
wonder increases that McKenna and
his men ever transported theaa across
the peninsula. In the local office the
duplex system is contained in six
booths, each containing ten heavy
chests. McKenna also saved a
mon th's files of messages.-Advert lser
Has Haunted Cable Office
Ever siuce Honolulu was notified of
the disaster of San Francisco the
local cable office has been haunted by
a young man named Crawford whose
father, mother and grandparents re
side in the Richmond district of San
Francisct . Only when it becomes
necessary for him to get his meals
does he leave the vicinity of the of
fice. Mr. Gaines found him at 3 at m.
Thursday sitting on tne curb and in
vited him inside the office,
"Well, I dou't suppose a young fel
low like me can show bis respects for
his parents better than by keeping 11V
touch with the only thing' that' con
nects with the place they're in dead

Tacoma (vVash.). Apr jl 1. A rpe
cial from Pogue, Okanogan country,
says that there are fifty eligible
bachelors near there, many of whom
are "well fixed" wiih worldly goods,
and some of whom have "all kinds of
money." None is a bachelor from
choice; every "Barkis" is "willing,"
but few single women make the trip
to that place.
Those who tdo manage to get
up there are school teachers or sis

outer world without getting married.
Schoolma'ams are in great demand,
and the school director ha.'c trouble
in keeping their teachers. They have

in nine cases out of ten, where a
womnu teacher is employed, some
man "butts in," and the school either
takes a long recess, or anew teacher

MILEAOK tip ROA P.
The accompanying table shows Mm
in 1904 there were 31.9JI8 miles of
public roads in the Stute of VV ashing
ton, of which 1,928 miles were sur
faced with grnvel and 4!4 mile with
stone. It will be seen from these
figures that about 6 per cent of the
roads have been improved, iyi-om
paring th ; t( tnl road tnilenge with
the area of the State, it appears
that there was 11 bout fol'tyeii'ht
hundredth ol a tiii'e of public rcud
per square mile of area. A c mpari-
son of mileage with population shows
that there was 1 mile of road to every
16 inhabitants, but only 1 milo of im
proved roud to every 202 inhabitants.
SOUHCE8 OF REVENUE.
The funds used invthe construction
and repair of loads are derived from
two sources a property tax and a
poll tax. The property tax is levied
by the Bonds of County Commission
ers and consists of
1. A "general road and bridge
tax" of not more than 4 mills on the
dollar 011 all the taxable property id
2. A "road district tax" of not
more than 10 mills on the dollar on
all the taxable property In the road
districts out-i.de the limits of incor
porated cities or towns.
3. A special levy for turnpike roads
of not to exceed 4 mills on the dollar
011 till pro erty abutting jn or within
2 miles of the roi-d to be improved.
Every male inhabitant living out
side the limits of incorporated cities
and towns, between the ages of 21
an1 50 (unless by law axempt), is
required to pay an annual poll tax of
$2 lor road purposes. From the ma
jority of the reports received it would
appear that this tax in 1904 operat
ed to a large extent as a statute la
bor lawj siuce in many instances the
tax appears to have been puiu iu
labor performed on the road instead
of in cash; but in 1905 the legislature
amended the law by requiring the
poll tax to be paid in money.
The amount derived from the pro
perty tax to be devoted to t oad im
provement in 1904 was $1,344,842.19,
and the amount of poll tax $91,228,
the total revenue from both sources
being $1,436,070.19. In comparing
the total revenue with the mileage ot
public roads and with tie population
of the State, it has been found that
the funds collected and expended for
road purposes amounted to $44.88
per mile of public roud, or $2.77 per
