Honolulu, September 17. The
long expected check for the
balance due to the Territory of
Hawaii, for $140,000, being the
amount paid as interest upon the
bonds assumed by the United
States at annexation was received
by Treasurer Wright yesterday.
A conference was held during
the day with Governor Dole and it
was decided to pay the money im
mediately upon fire awards as was
authorized by the legislature. The
money will Ee distributed pro rata
among the claimants, and the first
certificate for one-third the amount
will draw about seven-twenty-fifths
of its value. Warrants for the
first payment, which is for one
third of the total are already in the
hands of the auditor, ready for giv
ing out, but it will now be neces
sary to make up new warrants
covering Jthe pro rata. This will
necessitate a new warrant for the
balance, and the first series will
therefore become of no value. No
time has become fixed for the dis
tribution of the $140,000 but it will
' probably be within a week or so.
The money came in the form of
a draft upon the San Francisco sub
1 treasury. The distribution of even
.this small proportion of the fire
1 awards will be of considerable
value to the business community.
' Some of the fire cliamauts are said 1
to be suffering actual want, and I
any amount, however small, will
seem as a Godsend.
