Honolulu. The old man has lived i
alonowith liis sixtecn-ycar son for
Boino years, and as ho became help
lees from the effects of the disease
ho required n:oro and moro atten
tion. Being entirely without funds
or properly of any kind the son
worked on the roads to secure
money with which to buy food and
the work being several miles from
Ins homo it was impossible for him
to look after his father and work
on the road too. When the atten
tion of Dr. McConkey was called
to the matter ho made a special
trip out to see the old man and
finding him in a much worse state
than was reported, he brought him
to tho l'aia Hospital, whoro he
offered to pay one-half of tho ex
pense and Air. Church tho other
half. He will be sent to the Lcahi
Home where he will be taken care
The Sanitary inspector wrote that
he four.'? many of the cesspools need
ed excavating; as they were full and
that new ones could not be dug as
there was no room for them. The
inspector was requeslcd to get
prices with a view to buying an ex
cavator for the town.
The election proclamation was
then read and filed.
A set of rules and regulations
for the government of the police
were then taken up, but as they
were not suited to present condi
tions they will hardly be passed by
the present Board of Supervisors.
Tho chairman called the atten
tion 'of the representative of the
Nkws to the fact that at the last
meeting of tho Board applications
had been received from tho Pioneer
AI ill Co. and Kaeleku Sugar Co. for
railroad crossings but that permis
sion had not yet been granted, as
Wednesday noon the bids for a
ton-ton Kclley-Springfield steam
roller were opened and tho bid was
awarded to the Honolulu Iron
Works for 13575.
The same company was the suc
cessful bidder for tho gyratory rock
crusher; fitted with a 30-foot pipe
elevator 32 in. by 8 in., revolving
screen witn dust jacket, bolting,
pprockotiind chains, complete for
The bid for a double cylinder
vertical gns engine, 25 horse power,
was awarded to tho Von Hamm
Young Co. for $1950.
For the construction of the con
crete sidewalk cn lower Alain street
from Alarket to tho new railroad
depot the bid was let to T. B Lyons
as he was the only bidder.
An application was received from
a number of residents on Alarket
street extension to have the grade
fixed by the County Engineer and
stone curbing laid and the walk fill
ed with crushed rock, they to pay
one-half of the cost, provided the
same did not cost more than a
specified amount. This application
was. not acted upon at the time as
it felt that as so many applications
of this nature were coining in the
property holders should pay their
full half of tho cost of tho curbing
and stone, regardless of the cost
An application was received from
all of the property holders on the
the Waiheo side of Vineyard street
from the cemetery to Alarket strcot
except two, both of whom will
doubtless bo willing to have thoir
property improved, to have a five
foot sidewalk constructed, they to
pay one-half the cost of same. The
Board made a personal inspection
of the proposed work and laid tho
matter over until the next meeting
to give timo to aectiro the signatures
of tho other two proptity holders
before acting on tho application.
Tho Board appropriated for the
roads for tho districts tho follow
ing sums which may be added to
in future. Wailuku District 10,

Serious Accident nt Munition;
Mrs. Alauuol M. do Silva met with
a serious accident nt Maalnon result
ing In the breaking of a leg which ne
cessitated the amputation of tho
same. Airs. Silva was ono of tho
Kluau passengers from Honolulu and
when landed on the wharf started for
the shore, hut as the wharf is not
lighted and is so badly out of repair
that it Is dangerous even in tho day
time, sho fell oil the wharf and sus
tained such serious injuries that the
amputation nf one of her legs was
found necessary bv Dr. Dinegar, who
attended her injuries.
Mrs. do Silva is the mother of a
large family of children and her help
less condition will bo a great hard
ship to her and those who are du
pendent on her.
The old wharf has been iu a very
bad condition for a long time and
that more serious accidents have not
happened there is surprising.
Recently W. O. Smith of Honolulu
came nrar falling onto the rocks
there and registered a big kick
against the government for allowing
the same to be in so dangerous a con
dition. Some two weeks apo, Mr.
Charles Keidel, a piano manufacturer
of Baltimore, fell into the water off
this same wharf and had to swim to
tho shore. While tho Territory has
.built a wharf at McGregor's Lauding
that will bo an accommodation to
the people, who are unablo to take
the steamer at Kahului it has been
so slow about building an approach
to the wharf that it is yot not com
pleted. Had the Legis'aturc appropriated
sufficient funds for this class of work
it would have been done long ai-o In
stead of having to wait, forever, as
wo do for whatever improiements
are required and ihus avoid just such
accidents as this that, has. left a
mother helpless for life.
Death of John Bdwoi'dtt.
A cablegram was received on Tues
day in Honolulu from Memphis, Tenn.,

ber of tho Hawaii Band, now travel
ing the States, died suddenly of heart,
Edwards was a Hawaiian, aged

of the famous Kawaihau Quartet.
Tho deceased ,leaves a wife and
daughtor in Houolu'u and they have
cabled to have his body shipped back
to Hawaii for Interment.

PUBLIC WORK FOR NO JAP.
An opinion from the State Depart
ment at Washington is to tho elTect
that tho Hawaiian Contrast Labor
Law is not In contravention of tho
treaty rights of the Japanese, and
consequently tho officials here will
continue its enforcement. The opin
ion camo in tho following letter, ro
ccived by Governor Carter in his mail
on the last steamer:
"Department of State,
"Washington, July. 17. l!)0(i.
"His Excellency, the Coventor of
"Sir: I have the honor to acknowl
edge the receipt of your letter ot the
IGth ult., answering tho Depart
ment's telegram of Alarch 1st, last,
regarding the complaint of tho Jap
anese Legation that the enforcement
of the act of tho tlawalian Legislat
ure, No. 37, of April 23, 1003, to reg
ulate the employment of labor on
public works In Hawaii affect preju
dicially the interests of Japanese sub
jects in Hawaii.
"In reply, I have tho honor to say
that the Department after carcfu 1
consideration, is of tho opinion that
the law of the Territory of Hawaii hi
question is ii"t .in contravention of
our trealy of cominorco mid naviga
tion with Japan, negotiated in 1894.
"Tho duty of passing upon the con
stitutional questions Involved is not
confined to this Department. Tho
Department, as at present advised,
however, is of tho opinion that tho
statute does not coe within any of
tho Inhibitions of tho Federal consti
tution, and has indicated this opinion
to the Attornoy-Genoral in transmit
ting tho papers In tho case to tho
Department of Justice.
"As to tho questions of policy and
expediency involved, this Department
expresses no opinion,
"I have tho honor to bo, sir, your
(Signed) "ROBERT B CON,
Tho statute iu question is that
passed by tho Legislaturo of 1903
providing that no aliens should bo
given employment on contract work
done for tho Territorial Government.
There was considerable opposition to
it among the local Jtpancso, and tho
Consul finally took the matter up and
made reference of it to the Japanese
Legation in Washington. Tho Japan
ese Legation carried the matter to
the Slate Department, and that De
partment sent tho complaint to Gov.
ertnr Carter with a request for an
ex plana) inn of tho law.
In fi-nin'ng his reply to the Wash
ington people, the Governor went
largely into the matter of interna
tional law and treaty rights. Citizen
ship, the Goverror argued, w,,s a
question of sovereignly entirely. The
sovereign of a slate and only the sov
ereign, was the judge as to how far
such rights should bi extended to
foreigners, and no such subjectof any
other government hud tho right to
complain as to auy'limitalions made.
Since the American peoplo were sov
ereign, this i ight hi the United Stales
lay with th people.
Tho treaty of commerce aud navi
gation with Japan, the Governor urg
ed, had not in any way been violated in
Hawaii. Tho Japaneso hero could not
complain that they were not perfect
ly freo to travel nnd trade as they
liked. Tho matter of contracts in
volved a property right, and thoro
was no guauanteo of property rights
of this class in the treat'. "
Evidently, the State Department
has been impressed with the legal
showing made by tho Governor, and
has ruled accordingly. And so, until
tho point is decided by tho courts-
If tho law should over bo carried
there Japanese will conlinuo not to
be employed on government contract
work. And oven if it should bo car
ried to the courts, there Is no- assu
ranco that tho right to restrict such
work to citizen laborers will bo upset.
