The monthly mooting of the
County Supervisors was held this
week, beginning on Tuesday with
all of the members present. '
After the rearding of the minutes
of the previous meeting reports of
various ofheers were taken up. The
report of the County Engineer
covered the work done and that of
lie work under contemplation.
The work for each district was laid
out for the present month and the
same given fully and definitely.
The report of the Countv Super
intendent of Roads dealt with the
work being done, of changes made
and of others to be nado and re

system by which the amount of
work for each day may bo known
and the cost of every branch of the
work may be known definitely at
the close of each day. He further
.asked authority to dismiss any
employee who is found to be in
efficient. The report of the County Attor
ney showed that an unusual
amount of work has been done by
his department during the month.
The work has require the services of
himself or his deputy nearly every
day of the month and most of the
time both of them. In a great
majority of the cases convictions
were secured by his department

A communication from Governor
Frear relative to the bond issue
was by far the most important
communication received. Tl was
in full as follows:
Honolulu, Hawaii, Sept. 24, 1.107.
Wm. Henning, Esquire.
Chairman, Board of Supervisors,
Dear Sir: I received your
letter yesterday of the 43th instant
asking my assistance in obtaining
the Presidents consent to the is
suance of county bonds and sug
gesting that Mr. Campbell, Treas
urer oi tho Territory, now in the
east might speak to the President
in this behalf and referring to vari
ous laws and past correspondence
up on the subject. I have glanced
over the laws and also the past
correspondence and shall be glad
to do what I can to assist your
Board in this matter.
I doubt if Mr Campbell will be
able to do any thing during his
present visit in the east as his visit
will soon close. Moreover he can
not recommend any definite action
for want of proper papers.
I suggest that you furnish a full
statement to the President to act
This should go through the
Secretary of the Interior. I can
then address a letter to the Secre
tary to accompany this statement,
making such such recommenda
tions as may seem best. As you
are aware, Act 139 of tho last ses
sion authorizing the issuance
of these bonds is by its teiins, to
take effect only upon the date of
its approval by the President.
i hardly think that this can be
construed as bearing'uppn the ap
proval of the bond issue by the
President. The President's atten
tion should, of courso lie called to
this provision and it would bo for
him to say what it means and if in
his opinion it means the act its
self, to receive his approval it
would of course rest witn him to
say whether he would give it such
approval. That would not be ap
proval of tho kind required, by the
Governor to acts passed by the
legislature, that is by signature
of the act its self but approval
might be given by the President
in writing without having the ori
ginal copy of the act before him.
W. F. FREAR,
P. S. I should add that there is
at least a serious question as to
whether a law can be mado to take
cfTect upon such a contingency,
and of course tho President might,
as a question of policy, not care to
take action of this kind.

Arrangement is being made by
Governor Frear and Land Commis

number of the recent Spanish and

is to be done because it is known that
there are a number in different
places who w.s'n to take up Govern-inen-t

otherwise, and before they con do
this it will be necessary for them to

Hawaii Sisal in the Philippines.
MANILA, Sept. 7. -Over 50,000
maguey or Hawaiian sisal plants
were received from Honolulu last
week by the insular bureau of agri
culture. Yesterday 10,000 were
sent to Pangasinan and 10,000 to
Tayabas. Next week the rest or the
shipment will be distribu'ed among
the provinces or Albay, Sorsogon,
Bomblon, Surigao, Lcyte, Samar
and other provfnees.
H. JT. Edwards, insular fiber ex
pert, has received requests , from
every province in the archipelago
for these plant.?. Last year 250,000
plants were shipped into the islands
from Hawaii and distributed, and
200,000 will bo this year's quota.
Tho maguey fiber is recognized the
world over as a valuable production.
It will grow hi ovory part of tho
archipelago. From three to four
vears is required to mature, cutting
being made every year aftor ma
turity. At tho present timo the process of
curing maguey is done here by hand,
but. the introduction of machines has
begun and tips will cause a beneficial
uplift in maguey culture. Only threo
maguey machhies are in the islands
