The Board of Supervisors at its
meeting last week, revised and pass
ed on second reading, the proposed
ordinance creating the department of
County engineer. The ordinance as it
now stands, is published under a "by
authority' 'head in full in this issue.
No very material changes were made
In the document, although a great
deal of the tlmo was given to the dis
cussion of it. Tno ordinance passed
its second reading, all voting for It
except Lake, who voted "no," and
Myers, who was absent.
J. C. Foss, Jr., protested by letter
and in person against the ordinance,
unless it stipulated that tho County
engineer should not be permitted to
engage in outside contracting busl-
loss. This riolnt was 'debated at
much length, and wns finally settled,
by barring the engineer from under
taking any private work "that will
impair the efficiency of his department."
A sllmly. attended mass meeting
was held last Saturday night on Mar
ket street at which a resolution of
protest was adopted against the cre
ation of an engineer's department at
all, on tho ground that the county
hasn't tho money. The meeting was
addressed by J. V. Kalua, J. K. Ka-
hookelo, and Thomas Clark.

Although tho activity of tho great

what it had been a week previously,
Mr. Bowdish describes tho scene in
the huge cauldron as one of extreme
beauty. Ono vciy large fire fountain
was playing at the time and thero
were a number of largo lakes of
molten lava visible. The party found
the trip anything but pleasant, and
tho last two and a half miles were
made through snow. Dr. Baker did
not reach the summit, being seriously
affected by mountain sickness and re
maining below the snow line. During
their first night's camp on tho moun

Money, But Confident of Getting it.
At a special meeting of the Board of
Supervisors held on Tuesday tho reg
ular annual budget estimates of the
county for tho coming year 1915, was
passed upon. Tho board figures out
that it will need about $330,000 for
tho coming twelve months, and shows
how this Is to be raised based on an
assessment valuation of $25,100,000.
Tho board really expects to got more
than this, banking on tho likelihood
of tho valuation being raised after!
the assessment in January.
Ono of the most interesting feat
ures of the meeting was the decision
to boost all salaries that had been
cut during tho past year, to their
former level, and in not a few ins-j
tances to a figure higher than ..thev.'
had ever been before. f" Tho board
figurc3 out that it will only have to
egister warrants for salaries for two
or throe months, before the next tax
money comes In. Tin- summary of
