The grounds were in fine eondi

matter of comment among those
who have kept track of House pro
ceedings. Xo other reason for their
being introduced being apparent, it
was but charitable to attribute them
to the foolishness or inexperience of
certain of the 'House members. But
it how appears, according to corri
dor conversation, that there may be
ulterior motives behind the intro
duction of certain measures. The
pay of a Legislator is only 100
considerably less than that received
by most of the clerks, the Sergeant-
at-Arms, and other House officials.
And so some of the honorable gentle
men, according to the member from
the Fourth District, have been pad

ol the more remunerative work of
translating. As under the law, they
cannot draw two salaries from the
Territory at the same time, they
have been obliged to resort to the
subterfuge of using assumed names
to draw their pay for translating.
Long, it is stated, threatens that
if there is any more talk of graft" in
the House, he will tell what he
knows about this particular graft.
Therefore certain of the honorable
gentlemen who have been adding an
honest penny now and then to their
incomes, are supposed to be shaking
in their shoes.

for use of those who have been thus

Attorney Breckons of Hawaii, and
he will retain his office.
District Attorney Breckons, when
seen this moriuntr. said in nart:
"Yes; I have every reason to sup
pose that the news that Iain retain-
d in my position is correct. J had
1 private cable yesterday, which in
dicated that things were going that
way. I now consider that 1 have
been vindicated of the charges made
by Mr. 'Having. "
.In answer to a question re private
iractieo, Mr. Breckons remarked,
'1 shall do as I have Ix'cn doing for
somo tune; that is, I will take no
criminal oases that are Territorial
afVairs. I have taken none for some
time, and will go on as usual."
Mr. Breckons is being conuratii-
lated by everybody and fcelri that he
has been absolutely vindicated.
