The new return blanks to be
used by Hawaiian Island Assessors
this year arc an improvement over
any that have been heretofore used.
It will be more difficult than ever
for a piece of property to escape its
prorata share in the expense of
running the government. The new
schedules are especially strict with
reference to plantations. Planta
tions will be required to describe in
detail more particularly their real
ty holdings. Special attention
'is required in giving locations with
exactness. Lease holds and fee
simples must be distinguished more
Under the personal property
schedule "D," in addition to "Cash
on hand," the new schedule calls
for Cash in Hank or Agents hands.
Hitherto only the cash on deposit
in a bank or cash in one's posses
sion was required in the return to
the tax gatherers. This left n loop
hole through which many dollars
worth of revenue eluded the Treas
ury vaults. It was not n difficult
matter to place the cash in the
hands of a friend while the assessor
was making his rounds. 'Under the
new schedule funds in a friends
hands will be counted as in the
hands of an agent.
The banks in Honolulu have had
much to complain of in the past
from a class of depositors whose
sale object was to evade taxation.
The money would.comc in in ad
vance of the Assessor and be with
drawn as soon as that ofiicial had
made his annual call. The bank
paid the tax on the deposit but
failed to secure the use of the money
for any length of time. Hankers
arc devising a scheme by which
they propose to hold their own
against these transient depositors.
In schedule "I," previously
schedule "E," the Assessors have
sought to produce n plan that would
secure from plantations accurate
statements of past year's business.
Hitherto on this schedule such
plantations as Rwa and Kahukti
figured losses instead of profits.
This came about because they
claimed that unsold sugar was of
unknown value, and therefore was
not included in the assets of the
year. The new schedule requires
estimates. The members of the
Tax Court of Appeals and of the
Board of Equalization among them
selves devised the above improve
ments, in accordance with statutes.

The slides were probably the
finest which have ever been ex
hibited in Hilo. They lacked
particularly the blurred effect which
is so often present in lantern slides.
Each picture was clear cut and well
defined, the foliage of trees stand

also typically Japanese, represent
ing the land of the little Brown
Men in the prettiest season, Spring.
Cherry trees were visibly in abun

flowers lent a color to the landscape
which was exceedingly pretty.

W. J. Robinson, the first man to
be appointed to the third judgeship
of the First Judicial Circuit, Terri
tory of Hawaii, was born in the
city of Cleveland, Ohio, on March
9, t868, consequently is now in the
35th year of his age. He came to
Hawaii from Alameda, Cal., in
July, toco, settling nt Ilonolalu.
For several years prior to his
fourteenth year, the future jurist
attended the common schools of
San Francisco. On December 12,
1882, he entered the office of Hon.
Morris M. Estec, San Francisco, ns
clerk and law student, nud on Feb
ruary 17, 1889, went into the office
of the Hon. James C. Murtin, a
member of the Oakland and Ala
meda bar. Mr. Robinson was on
January 13, 1891, admitted to praci
tice in all the courts of California.
Thenceforth he practiced at Oak
land until July 19, 1900, when he
removed to Hawaii. On the 8th
of August following he was admit
ted to the Federal courts and on the
1 1 th of September to the Territorial
courts. Judge Estec gave the cer
tificate of his character and stand
ing attached to his application for
admission to the Hawaiian bar.
Judge Robinson, since the insti
tution of the United States District
Court, filled the office of United
States Commissioner, the functions
of which arc those cf a committing
magistrate. From an early date in
his career in Honolulu, Mr. Robin
son has until now been the law
partner of the Hon. W. Austin
Whiting, former Justice of the

"Some time ago my daughter
caught a severe cold. She com
plained of pains in her chest and
had a bad cough. I gave her
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy ac
cording to directions and in two
days she was well and able to go to
school. I have used this remedy
in my family for the past seven
years and have never known it to
fail," says James Frendergast, mer
chant, Annotto Hay, Jamaica, West
India Islands. The pains in the
chest indicated an approaching at
tack of pneumonia, which in this
instance was undoubtedly warded
off by Chamberlain's Cough Re
medy. It counteracts any tendency
of a cold toward pneumonia. Sold
