AMKND1NM 1111.0 KLKCTItUJ,
1 Senator Ilronn Asked For Franchise
1 to Kukttlhnelr.
I Honolulu, March 26. The first
matter on the order of the day was
the Hilo electric railway franchise.
Senator J. T. Brown made a
speech against the interierence of
the Kohala &. Hilo Railway Co.
This corporation was granted its
franchise in 1900, hut nothing had
been accomplished under it because
there were no funds, Mr. Peck
had made several trips abroad with
out obtaining money to build the
road. It was on account of that
company's delay that this enterprise
was being promoted. He conclud
ed by moving an amendment to the
committee's recommendations, so
as to allow the electric railway 'to
run for two miles from the Hilo
court house. At Senator Dickey's
suggestion he made it two miles
from the new bridge.
Senator McCaudless read a letter
from the Superintendent of Public
Works to the Kohala & Hilo rail
way Co., notifying the latter of the
confirmation of its right of way
from Hilo to Hamaktta, which
showed that the promoters of that
line .had until last October been
hampered in preliminaries through
no fault of their own.
The amendment was further doc
tored by Senators C. Brown and
Dickey and as amended the section
Senator Woods moved to strike
out "mails and merchandise." If
this railway was intended only for
passengers as claimed, it should not
be chartered to enter into competi
tion with the Kohala & Hilo Rail
way. People on the other end of
the Island were interested in the
matter, being anxious that the
other line should not be delayed in
reaching them. After remarks by
Senator Baldwin and others, he
consented to have the clause read
"personal baggage and packages."
Any motive power except steam
A fare of five cents within a ra
dius of three miles and a propor
tionate rate beyond was adopted,
also the committee's amendment
that policemen and firemen going
and coming on duty be carried free,
and children going to school and
returning at half fare.
The company is required to make
a substantial beginning in construc
tion within two years from the ap
proval of the Act by Congress, and
to have its line in complete opera
tion within five years from the same
The speed limit within the three
mile radius was made eight miles an
Track and pole location and con
struction are under supervision of
the Superintendent of Public Works
and subject to his approval.
The term of the franchise is thirty
years, at the end of which period
the Government will have the right
to acquire the line at a valuation
fixed by arbitration. An amend
ment to this provision recommend
ed by the committee was passed,
providing that after five years the
company shall pay 2 1-2 per cent,
of its gross receipts each year to the
Territory, with the further amend
ment that in the event of county
government being established this
tribute be paid into the county trea
sury. High Olllclal Resigns.
Washington, D. C, March 26.
Postmaster General Payne has re
moved James N. Tyner, Assistant
Attorney General for the Postoffice
Department. The charge against
him is that he assisted his nephew,
Harrison J. Barrett, to earn large
fees from illegitimate business house
which had employed Barrett to de
lay action against them by the Post
office Department. Tyner is on old
man of long public service who, his
friends claim, was deceived by Bar
rett. He will resist removal.
San Francisco, Col., March 26.
Representatives of the Oceanic
Steamship Company deny that they
intend to cut the passenger rate to
Honolulu. The story of a possible
reduction had its origin in Hon
olulu and was given some credit
owing to the financial condition of
the company which caused a drop
in the quotations of its stock in the

Whereas, a certain set of silver
table ware, together with the chest
containing the same, of great value,
was presented on or about the year
1874 to His late Majesty Kalakaua
by His Excellency the then Presi
dent of the French Republic, some
of which articles of silver having
been lost in later years were replac
ed at the expense of his said late
Majesty, in or about the year 1882,
Whereas said articles remained
in the use and possession of his said
Majesty Kalakaua, during the bal
ance of His Majesty's life; and there!
after remained in the possession of
His Majesty's successor, Her Maj
esty Liliuokalani, at the said Iolani
Whereas, said articles arc now
held in the custody of the Superin
tendent of Public Works of this
Territory, under the claim that the
same belong to this Territory, and
were not the private property of
His Majesty Kalrfkaua, but because,
by fact of such prcs:ntation as
aforesaid, the property of the Crown
of Hawaii, to which said Territory
has succeeded, and
Whereas by the death, and under
the bill of his said Majesty Kala
kaua, his personal property and ef
fects became vested in his widow,
the late Queen Dowager Kapiolaui,
by whose will in turn, all her pro
perty not otherwise specifically dis
posed of, and including said articles,
became vested in her two nephews,
the Princes David Kawananakoa
and Jonah Kalauiauaole, and
Whereas, it is flitting that a pre
sent such as that above described,
from the head of the great French
Republic to the Monarch of Hawaii,
should not, under the peculiar cir
cumstances and condition of such
gift; be claimed or kept by the
government of this Territory, but it
is proper that the representatives in
family and estate of his said Maj
esty Kalakai 1 should receive and
enjoy the articles so presented to
their illustrious relative as aforesaid,
Be it resolved by the House of
Representatives, the Senate con
curring, that the Superintendent of
Public Works be, and he is hereby
instructed to deliver to the said
Princes David Kawananakoa and
Jonah Kolanianaole, all and sin
