preciate this kindness and we are
elated over this distinguishing
mark of your regard for us and for
We welcome you with joy, and
while we have no keys of city, or,
island to present you, we do have
a word of greeting which is the
"open sesame'' of our hearts. It
is a native Hawaiian word now
adopted by us all who are citizens
both oft Hawaii and of the United
States. It is our beautiful and ex
pressive "Aloha.'' We give it
you, and you may take it with you
throughout your journey around
the world, and, always. Regard
then this Aloha of Hawaii as our
hope for your happiness forever.
My friends I do not need to
further introduce our guest, be
cause tor years his position has
been such that we could not look
at the United States and not see
Charles W. Fairbanks.
Governor Frear, I need not say
welcome to you for you are, Ha
waii, nor, can I presume to intro
duce you to your own-.
And gentlemen, I share the hope
of all present that each of you will
be so kind as to .recognize our high
regard, by your words of interest
and of wisdom.
In reply Mr. Fairbanks said in
part a follows:
Judge Kingsbury, ladies and
gentlemen; There is no more dif
ficult task than to properly express
one's gratitude. After thanking
the people for their hearty
welcome and good wishes he said.
"I marvel that we are here at all.
I am not used to the saddle and
yet I have been in one since one
o'clock this morning. I find that
Governor Frear breaks the eight
hour a day law and has done so
each day I have been with him.

heard plantation managers arose

been on the go continuously since.

was recently in politics. Governor
Frear says there if another place
more suitable for the reception of
politician's where . we will go to
morrow. The thing that has impressed
ir.e most is not the material
development of the country but
the warm heartedness of the peo
ple. I am one of those who were glad'
to see the islands made a part of
tho United Stnjes for tho advan
tage of both. President Roosevelt
saw his duty and had the courage
to do it.
We could not travel apart, if we
would and we would not if wo
could. Your problems have been
difficult but you have gone at thorn
Mr. Fairbanks was followed by
a short address by Governor Frear.
All present met the guests and
gave them a hcaity greeting.

time next week during the session
of the Hoard of Supervisors.
Concrete stops and a fouteen-foot
brick walk are being made by Jailor
Welch and his assistant Ikmrn.
Their work is everything that could
be desired and it is exceptionally
fortunate for the people of Wniluku
that we have the services of such
men as they to lend a hand when

The hall is equipped witli a Sun

There are" four-essentials to good
citizenship, The Great Rook, The

Governor Frear was called upon
by Mr. Fairbanks for an address
and said that he would keep his
promise in tho usual way by call

The Governor made a short ad
dress and retired but was called
back to give an account of what is
being done in the way of securing
further grounds for the school
which the Governor promised over
a year ago.
The Governor stated that there
are negotiations pending at the
present time and said he believed
there would soon ho something
The party then went back of the
school house to look at the land

visited before leaving for Hawaii.

Honolulu, May 1. A regular
shakeupin the Judiciary department
results from tho manipulation of the
appropriation hill by the Legislature.
Of the two deputies in the clerk's
ollice, L. P. Scott will ho pan on
July 1, its no salary was provided
for his ollice.
Tho other deputy clerk, J. A.
Thompson, will continue in his usual
place, that is, a clerk of the Sup
remo Court at tho same pay, -floOn
Miss Catherine Cook, one of the
stenographers, will also hi! pan,
leaving only Miss Kate Kelley to do
stenographic work for tho Supremo
While it is time that the clerk's
ollice will get two more assistant
clerks, they will not add to the of
fice stall' on account of the' two just
mentioned going out. This one
change alone will be a saving of $7"
a month, as tho two just mentioned
now draw ?27o, whije the two who
will come in will only draw tf'JO').
The only person in tho ollice who
will get an increase in pay is Alex
K. Aona, one of the present assis
tants, who will have added to
his present S7o a month, but it is
no extra cost to tho Territory as the
same amount is to come off of the
chief clerk's pay.
The legal status of the clerks will
be tho same after Juno I JO as now,
that is, they will be departmental
as well as court clerks. The bill to
make a change failed of passage in
the legislative session just closed. It
had been intended to abolish tho
departmental system of appointing
clerks. A bill passed in the House
to cil'ect tho change, and appropri
ation items wore accordingly made
there witli a chief clerk at 117") a
month, which proposed ollice was
offered by tho judges of tho Circuit
Court to tho present chief clerk,
Henry Smith, who would have sue
eo'eded himself had the bill passed
It was then that Mr. Smith had
to suggest, based on ground of elli
ciency and his experience in the
past; that there should at least ho
two assistants because tho whole of
the present staff, except the two
going out, would have transferred
itself to the Supremo Court. Accord
ing to the appropriation bill as it
then stood, only one clerk was allow
ed to run the clerk's ollice which
practically would have been tlu
same one as now conducted. It was
probably intended that tho court
room clerks would help out, lint
that idea has never in the past work
ed itself to any degree of perfection
nnd the kind of efficiency that would
have been offered to tho public had
such a method been allowed to pre
vail is questionable. Hence Mr
Smith's respectful request for assis
hints. That is how the allowances
for two new assistants came to bo
inserted in tho appropaiation hill.
Rut the House hill to reorganize
clerks died in committee of the
Senate and appropriation items wen
considered in tho Senate as going to
departmental clerks irrespective of
any separation of clerks whatever
Had the House hill passed, it
would havo been necessary to havo
two separate sets of clerks, .one for
tho Supremo Court and one for tho
Circuit Court. Whichever way they
were going to act the Circuit judges
wore preparing for the change.
Judge Do'Rolt upon request, even
went so far as to draft a hill, con
forming it to what would suit every
body, hut all that has gone to
naught. Vet after all, there would
havo been merely a separation in
law, not an actual separation of
In tho first place, there is no room
in tho Judiciary building to house
two sets of clerks, their ollice parap
hernalia and records of tho respec
tive courts. Moreover, there are the
Speaker llolstein Sends Elo
qtient Aloha to Fairbanks.
Honolulu, .May 1. The following
letter from Speaker Holstein, which
was read at tho Commercial . Clubf
dinner to Clinilis Warren Fair-
hanks, was received with loud ap
plause, and has been much com
mented on as a most able produc
tion: George W. Smith, 12-q.,
My Dear Mr. Smith, and Toast
master. 1 regret my inability to ho pres
ent at tho dinner given to our dis
tinguished guest, Vice-President
Fairbanks, and trust that the wel
come you will give him, will ho as
historic as th reception accorded
our friend in the Legislative Hall.
Hawaii has long been a clearing
Iioum' for great men, standing mid
way, as she does, between the oldest
of the Old World and tho newest of
the New World, tho peaceful ocean
outpost of the most modern and
migliiest peace-power of the earth.
Herts it is that wo welcome the
great thinkers and actors of Orient
and Occident, and as they pass to
and fro, carrying messages of friend
ship and brotherhood from one civ
ilization to another, and so cem
enting tho fellowship of tho king-
dolus and republics of the globe.
Statesmen and diplomats, teach
ers and tourists, all give us call,
bringing with them something of
tho influence of all the corners of
tho earth and finding hero, to take
away with them, something of the
spell and charm of these lovely
islands which are forever keeping
guard, like sentinels, J'over the ap
proach to the newest and most pro
gressive of nations.
That our friend and distinguished
guest, Charles Warren Fairbanks,
who has so honorably and actively
assited in a great and splendid ad
ministration of the a flairs of the
United' States, has not come this
way before, is all tho more reason,
I believe, that ho will want to visit
us again and watch us grow.
We are proud of tho islands he
now beholds; we are proud of the
Americanization of the paradise of
the Pacific; we are proud of these
rich and beautiful isles are a Terri
tory of the United .States of Ame
rica, and wo arc determined in the
desire, before long, to ho entered
among the States of the Union, and
to behold among tho constellation
of Old Glory, some day, another
star, which shall be Hawaii's sym
bol in tho sacred sign of the sister
hood of States.
Accept my sincere thanks and

records of defunct courts such as tho
admiralty court, tho bankruptcy
court, the intermediary court anH
the former nisi prius Supreme court.
All of those were 10 years ago trans
ferred to the custody of the depart
mental chief clerk and there is no
place outside of tho present record
vault whither they can bo taken
without risk of loss. In whose charge
these old. records were to he placed
would have been the conundrum.
There was no allusion to the matter
of custody of these old records in
any of tho proposed legislation.
However, they are safely lodged
whore they now are.
To those who think of separating
dorks, the first consideration would
he of increased room space. There
is not enough now. Separation of
clerks, means separation of the re
cords too and tho hulk of tho con
tents now in the record vault is of
records belonging to tho Circuit
Court. The hulk of safes as well as
moneys in the chief clerk's hands is
also the property of tho Circuit
Court. Which of tho two sets of
clerks was going to vacate the pro
sent office was never made clear.
