unrded to Congress.'
When Senators Mitchell',4 Burton
and Foster were in Hilo, among
other subjects they discussed, was
the need of a Federal Building in
Hilo, and among the suggestions
they offered to expedite the coming
of the improvement was that plans
of a suitable building be drawn up
here and forwarded to Congress.
When this was suggested to Archi
tect Richlcy, he at once set his
mind and pencil to work. As a
result he already had the drawings
under headway when Commissioner
Kustis come. Mr. Eustis approved
the course and now Mr. Richley
has the plans completed.
The object of drawing up plans
at this time is to secure a consensus
of Hilo opinion beforehand and to
impress the authorities at Wash
ington that Hilo is ready to meet
them half way if it can and is
ready to meet them quick.
The bureau at Washington
which has in charge the designing
and planning for new public build
ings is very far behind in its work.
There are cases known, where it
has been three years after an appro
priation passed before architect s
plans' were made. Hilo's immense
distance from Washington and its
new conditions as compared to any
that exist in the states might in
duce Congress to send a building
commissioner down to investigate
as to available materials in this isl
and and the requirements of the
It was to head off any long
drawn out program of this sort that
the Senators suggested that Mr
Richley draw plans here and for
ward them with a definitcor general
approval by the Hilo public.
Should the plans drawn by Mr.
Richley meet the approval of the
people of Hilo and stand the criti
cism of the Department of Design
at Washington, there is no doubt
but that his promptness will hasten
the date of building operations on
the Federal Building by many
The building is designed to face
Waianuenue street with a frontage
of 154 feet with a depth of 60 feet.
It is designed to be fire proof and
to be constructed of Island materials
as far as possible. Mr. Richley be
lieves that a finer building stone
than our volcanic rock cannot be
The height of the building to the
base of the flag staff on the tower is
to be 115 feet. The tower is de
signed to be 24 feet square and the

tower. The cornice is to be a belt
of terra cotta seven feet in height.
In the interior, all partitions will

work will be steel girders and iron
columns. The roof will be of steel
covered with slate tiling. All floors

INJUNCTION HON I) DECISION.
Judge Little Decides For I'lnlntlfT
In riautnttons vs. Hay.
Judge Little rendered a decision
last Monday in the cases of the
Laupahoehoe Sugar Company aud
the Hakalau Plantation Company
vs. H. E. Soule and I. E. Ray,
action to recover on injunction
bond, finding in each case for the
plaintiff. Notice of appeal has been
filed; Wise & Ross for plaintiff;
Smith & Parsons for defendant.
'The records of the court show
that on December 12, 1900, a bill
in equity was filed by H. E. Soule,
plaintiff, vs. Thf. Laupahoehoe
Sugar Company and The Hakalau
Plantation Company, jointly, ask
ing among other things, that a
temporary iniuuetion be issued
against both corporations; which
writ was issued in accordance with
the prayer of the bill, after the
plaintiff, H. IS. Soule, as principal
obligor, and I. E. Ray, as surety,
had signed a bond to each of the
defendant companies in the penal
sum of $5,000. The injunction re
mained in force and effect from
December 12 to 26, 1906, when it
was dissolved on motion of the
plaintiff's counsel therein.
In the meantime the defendant
companies had employed counsel
aud gone to other expense to con
test the injunction. In the present
suit they sought to recover said
expense aud outlay from I. E. Ray,
as surety, for H. E. Soule, the
principal obligor. The Hakalau
Plantation Company claimed the
sum of $958 and the Laupahoehoe
Suear Company claimed $839.
As a finding of fact, the court
states that Messrs. Hatch ccStlliman
and Mr. v. M. wakelielu were
each employed by the Laupahoehoe
Sugar Company solely for the pur
pose of dissolving the writ of 111
junction; that Wakefield received
for this, $25p; and Hatch & Silli
man, S552; and tliat these sums
were actually paid to said solicitors.
As a conclusion of law the deci
sion says the plaintiff in this action
can recover attorneys' fees and
other reasonable expenses laid out
for services of solicitors and soli
citors' expenses. It is held, how
ever, that no recovery can be had
for the money paid to F, M. Wake
field, as he was the company's
general solicitor and received a
regular salary or retainer. The
same is held with reference to the
expenses of regular salaried em
ployees of the plantation. Judgment
was therefore reudered in behalf of
the Laupahoehoe Sugar Company
in the amount of $551 and costs of
In like manner, judgment cf
$751.50 was rendered in behalf of
the Hakalau Plantation Co.
