Honolulu, February 23 Ai "Ad
ministration measure to create a
Cn-eat Itegistrati r of Voters, follow
ing out t)io plan outlined by the
(inventor in his message, was the
most important lull introduced in
the House this -morning, Represen
tative Muddy standing sjionsor for
the bill. ,
This bill provides that instead of
its Uing necessary for all the voters
(o register 1m fore they arc eligible
to vote nt any election, there shall
be kept a (JrcHt Register, similar to
that in use in the Slates, and any
elector having once been registered
shall not be required 1o register
again for any succeeding election,
unless he shall have moved from
the precinct from which he voted
The Uoiird of Registration is still
retained, but it is largi ly an orna
mental article of (iovi rnmeiital
furniture. Instead of traviling
about the country as heretofon at
$7 jicr daj and sitting at dilTcreiit
pi. ic s for a short time In fore each
( lection to register the voters, it
shall stay at home and sit. The
real work of registration is by the
terms of this bill delegated to the
County Clerks of the various enun-
llies- At present it costs about
tli(HM) to register the Voters of the
Territory: The new plan, it is
thought, will greatly nduee ihis
figure. A Hoard of Registration for
cadi district shall sit at H1I0, Kai
lua, Wailuku, Honolulu, and Lilnie
on the second Wednesday of October
of each general election year to hear
appeals, and shall continue their
sittings until stch appeals have all
Saccessfal Weed Burner
Made and Tried.
An economy of 5)o percent in the
cleaning weeds from the railroad
track, is in the result that Man
ger Filler finds from the use ol the
Tiotinnli patent weed luu ni'l.i ap
paralus, and the outcome should
be the conferrinii of a grent advan
tage not only upon th:;f company,
but also upon nil ll.e railroad and
sugar companies in these islands
that may adopt the machine for
use on their lines. Added to the
economy is the question of safety,
for by this apparatus weed burn
ing can be conduced without the
Kiignu'si uanger 01 lire spreaoing
to the canefields.
An exhaustive trial has been
conducted over about two miles, of
track, and careful notes have been
taken of the cost and the results.
The machine is loaded on a flat
truck drawn by a locomotive which
travels at about two miles an hour,
distributing a stream of fire from
crude oil burners, covering a width
of twelve feet if necessary and
effectively destroying all weeds be
ween the rails and' on either side.
Within u 11 hour jhe two miles of
track were thoroughly cleaned at
an expenditure for oil at tlie rale
of sixty cents a mile. This was 011
a stretch where the needs had neen
allowed to grow for four months
and were of fresh and rank growth.
It was found that, when not quite
burned up, the weeds were so com
pletely destroyed that they wither
ed and dried, and in a few days
were swept awny.by the suction of
the train' as it passed. Weeds of
young growth are totally consum
ed. A little calculation will .-how the
enormous saving that will he ef
fected by using this apparatus, as
compared with the old method. liy
the new process, twenty miles of
railroad track can lie cleared of
weeds for an outlay of $12.00,
whereas by the method formerly
employed the cost was about $300.
00. There is thus a gain of $288.
00 on tlie single operation; and, as
this has to be repeated three limes
a year, the annual saving will be
no less than fSG4.(X):
The machines are constructed at
the Milo Railroad workshops, and
it is the intention of Manager
Filler to till any orders sent by
those plantations that may require
them. They will be built to suit
any gage of line and to lit any
description of truck
