paragraph uh amended shall read
"Penitentiary of the Territory of
Hawaii shall be located in Hilo in
the County of Ctillotn and, until
otherwise provided, the Hilo prison
shall be used as the Territorial pen
itentiary and also the county jail of
the County of Cttllom."
The reason for suggesting the
ubove amendment to Section 406 is
Amend Section 413, Chapter 66
as follows: "Nothing in this Act
contained shall be construed in
such manner as to deprive the
Board of Supervisors of any county
of control oyer harbors or wharves
or pilots. All laws of the Territory
now in force relative to the harbors,
wharves, and pilots shall remain iu
full force except as herein other
Section 414 of Chapter 66 shall
be amended to read as follows:
"All acts required by the laws of
the Territory of Hawaii to be per-
j formed by the Superintendent of
Public Works relative to harbors,
wharves and pilots shall hereafter
be performed bv the Board of Sup
ervisors of the county in which the
said harbors, wharves and pilots
Amend Section 415, Chapter 67,
under the title of "Public Schools"
found on page 120 of the proposed
bill as follows: "The management
, of the public schools of the Terri
tory of Hawaii shall be controlled
by the County Superintendent of
the respective counties in which
such schools are located."
Amend Section 416 as follows:
"The expenses of conducting said
schools shall be paid by the respec
tive counties of the Territory of
Hawaii;" and by adding that, "All
Acts, parts of Acts, Chapters or
parts of Chapters, of the Civil
Laws of 1897 in conflict with the
provisions of this Act are hereby
repealed, and all requirements of
said statutes shall be met by the
respective County Superintendents
under the provisions of this Act."
Amend Chapter 68 on page 120
by striking out Sections 417 and
418 and substituting in lieu thereof
the following: "That the Board
of County Supervisors shall appoint
for their respective counties a
County Health Officer, whose du
ties shall be such as may be re
quired by law."
The reason for suggesting the
abolition of Chapter 68 is the his
tory of the Board of Health in this
Territory in the past. The burn
ing of Honolulu, with all its inci
dents, should be sufficient evidence
of the necessity of its immediate
and unconditional abolition.
The bill should be amended so as
to provide for a County Superin
tendent and a County Health Offi
cer; all schools should be controlled
by the County Superintendent,
who should be elected by the peo
ple. No city, unless it had a pop
ulation of 10,000 people, should be
permitted to incorporate. All use-
I less officers should be dispensed
'with. All taxes, real and personal,
I and taxes paid by agents of the
sugar corporations upon the income
of the corporations should be made
I payable to the tax collector within
j the district where the plantation is
I Section 164, Chapter 19, should
the amended as follows: After the
I word "competent" on' the first line
(strike out "land surveyor" and in
sert in lieu thereof "a competent
engineer," so that the section as
amended would read "The County
Surveyor must be a competent
civil engineer, etc."
It is necessary for a County Sur
veyor to be a competent civil en
gineei in order that he may dis
charge the duties required of him
with relation to roads and bridges,
grading, etc., iu a proper manner.
A competent land surveyor cannot
always do that.
Amend second Sub-division of
Section 181, Chapter 21, page 55,
by striking out the following
words: "Act as clerk of Board of
All of these amendments and
suggestions are respectfully sub
mitted. There are many others

Shotted the tJiifulllnic SIk or limit-uem.
The House Naval Committee
heard from Mr. Dayton, the other
day, an account of his first meeting
with Captain Clark, who command
ed the Oregon.
"We had gone over to Philadel
phia to inspect the League island
yard," said Mr. Dayton, "and
several naval officers escorted us
about the place. Admiral Casey
took Mr. Foss in tow, and there
were general introductions to the
several officers, but I did not catch
the names. A Captain, broad
shouldered and cheerful looking,
sidled up to me us we started on
foot to look over the premises. We
talked about the yards till that
topic of conversation was exhausted,
and finally fell to talking about the
battle of Santiago. The Captain
spoke in praiseworthy terms of the
different captains and commanders
in fleet that whipped the Spaniards.
" 'But why do you not make
some mention of Clark, that officer
who brought the Oregon around
the Horn and requested the Navy
Department not to tie him up with
orders, but to leave him to look
out for himself, which he promised
to do, even if he met the entire
Spanish fleet? He is one of my pet
"The Captain politely evaded my
inquiry, and not long afterward he
began to talk about the guns that
worked the destruction of the Span
ish fleet. He commented upon the
execution of the Iowa, told of the
powerful marksmanship on the
Brooklyn, and so on.
" 'Pardon me,' I intcrposedagaiti,
'but why do you omit mention of
those mighty thirtcen-iuch guns of
the Oregon? What you have said
about the otiiers is all well enough,
but I hdve a chip 011 my shoulder
when you slight the Oregon. Don't
you know that Caritain Clark hung
close to the enemy in that conflict?'
11 'You must have misunderstood
my name when I was introduced,'
replied the Captain, turning full
upon me. 'I am compelled to tell
you that I am Captain Clark.'
" 'Then I have no apologies to
make,' was my reply, 'but can
earnestly say that I really want to
get better acquainted with you.' "
Cecil Rhodes' Way.
The late Cecil Rhodes, with his
extraordinary wealth, was able to
do things in a way that many an
other would etitfy, says the New
York Mail and Express. On the
dther hand, he was extraordinarily
democratic iu his mode of living
and seemed to have no idea of such
a thing as home comfort or of col
lecting around him little knick
knacks of his own choosing or pro
curing. This always apart from
his South African home, Groot
Schuur, which was unfortunately
burned down not very long ago,
where he had a magnificent collec
tion of old oak furniture, being
especially fond of old oak dower '
On the occasion of his visit to
England he purchased an estate at .
Newmarket, wh ch he declared
was the one spot in all the world
that suited his health best. Find- !
iug himself iu possession of an ini
niemse unfurnished mansion, he
telephoned at 9 o'clock one morning
to the largest furniture establish
ment in London, asking that a re-
presentativc be sent to his hotel to
see him at once. The request was
immediately complied with, and on '
the arrival of the manager he said: '
"Mr. Williams, I have a house,
at Newmarket containing twenty
seven bedrooms, drawing-rooms,
dining-room, study, library, etc.
Have it furnished for me iu three
days with everything complete.
That night twenty-four vans left
Loudon full of furniture, followed
in due course by others, and iu
three days there was not a neces
sary article missing from the es
tablishment. Snellen und Nonrur.
