A" WBrd"" tortlnn. I
Honolulu, April 23. Mr. Mac
Leunan, agent of the United States
Treasury, was in conference yester
day afternoon with Governor Dole,
Secretary G. R. Carter and Auditor
J. H, Fisher regarding the prelimi
naries for payment of the balances
of awards of the Fire Claims Com
mission. It will be remembered
that when a request was cabled
from Washington to make and
transmit thither a transcript of all
certificates of award, with a state
ment of balances due, Governor
Dole peremptorily declined the task
of signing an odd seven thousand
documents a second time. The first
thing Treasury Ageut MacLennnn
asked for, when he arrived with the
million dollars currency appropri
ated for the fire claims by Congress,
was n transcript of the awards with
balances due thereon.
Auditor Fisher, at yesterday's
conference, was able to show a com
paratively easy method of comply
ing with the requirment. This
was to furnish a typewritten trans
cript of the ledger pages containing
the entries of judgments, ten per
cent, payments, and balances. The
book is a patent-back one with de
tachable leaves, so that it was a
simple matter to divide the copying
between different operators, besides
having the pages in convenient po
sition for copying. Mr. Fisher this
morning gave the work out to J. D.
Avery, who put two typewriters at
it for all day, to be relieved by two
others for all night. It is expected
that the transcript will be completed
within forty-eight hours. When
compared with the original and
found correct, Governor Dole's sig
nature will attest the entire record.
Kvery page of the copy must cor
respond with its original, including
the folio numbers and footings of

torial Government paid ten percent.
of'the amount, the Legislature of
1 90 1 having dedicated the' Federal
payment of interest on the Ha
waiian debt to this purpose, the
sum being $147,317.30. This leaves
a balance of $11325,855.70, for
which Congress appropriated the
million dollars now here and autho
rized, for the balance, an issue of
Territorial four per cent, bonds to
be sold at not less than par. As
everyone known, bids advertised
for the bonds only resulted in one
bid for $1,000. Mr. MacLennan,
since the ignoring of the bonds by
investors became known, has hoped
that the larger awardee would ac
cept a pro rata of the bonds in pay
ment of their balances, so as to
complete the liquidation of the fire
claims at one operation..
When seen at the First National
Hank this afternoon, Agent Mac
Lennan stated that so far as he
knew no agreement had been
reached for the large claimants to
take a portion of their payments in
the four per cent, bonds. If this
were accomplished it would greatly
facilitate the payment of the Million
dollars coin now in his possession.
From Mr. MacLennaa's conversa
tion it will be some time before he
will be able to begin cash payments.
Stricken Italian Minister.
Rome, Italy, April 21. Signor
Prinetti, Italian minister of foreign
affairs, has resigned. Some time
ago Signor Prinetti was afflicted
with a stroke of paralysis, being
unable to speak, and having his
whole right side paralyzed. His
illness came at an inopportune time
for Italy for she was then in the
throes of the Venezuelan contro
versy and Signor Priuetti's resig
nation now is probably due tp the
fact that Italy needs a well and
strong hand to handle her foreign
afTairs during the Balkan crisis in
which she is much interested.

Kansas City, Mo., April 21.
William J. Bryan, in the course of
a speech delivered at a Democratic
banquet, gave full sway to his bitter
feelings against his opponents in
the party. He Hayed ex-President
Cleveland in scorching terms,
charging him with being a traitor
to the true principles of Democracy.
Honolulu, April 22. A message
from the House of Representatives
announced it had passed on third
reading the Senate bill to regulate
the practice of dentistry, with a
meudmeuts ns set forth. On motion
of Senator Dickey the Senate con
curred in the amendments.
The House also communicated
the House bill, which had passed
third reading, to provide for the
care, custody, control and payment
f $'55i54G-70, commonly known
as the Chinese fund. It was read
a first time.
Senator Cecil Brown, for the pur
pose of making remarks, made a
formal motion to reject the bill
which he would withdraw later.
The fund was declared by the bill
to belong to the Territory of Ha
waii as a government realization.
That money belonged either to the
Chinese who deposited it in the
Postal Saving Batik or it belonged
to the United States of America.
He believed that every Chinese
depositor in that fund was entitled
to receive his money back on fur
nishing proof. If any Chinese ran
away or forfeited his deposit, his
share belonged to the United States
Government. None of that money
had been paid back to the deposi
tors excepting those who left the
country, but the Government had
been using it as if it were its own.
He read from the Organic Act to
show that unclaimed deposits in the
Hawaiian Postal Savings Bank
were to be paid to the Treasurer of
the United States, and argued that
this bill did nothing but repeal the
Organic Act in this respect. What
ever they might do with it they
should have to account to somebody
for the mouey. If it was kept by
the Government they would very
soon see the Chinese depositors
making a demand for it. He sub
mitted to the Senate whether the
bill should be passed or rejected.
Senator McCandless as'ked what
position the United States Govern
ment would have been in if the
fund had been given into the hands
of a trustee for six years.
Senator Brown replied that it
would be subject to any claims that
might be made against it. It was
strange to him that the United
States Government never raised a
question about the money. The
Board of Immigration always con
trolled the fund until the Govern
ment wanted to use it. Answering
a further question by Senator Mc
Candless, he said that if the Gov
ernment obtained the money it
would use it and put I. 0. U's in
Senator McCandless moved, sec
onded by Senator Dickey, that the
Senator Achi said he supported
theformer bill because he wanted
the Chinese to get their money.
He did not believe the Government
had a right to the fund, in spite of
this bill. '
The motion to pass the bill
lost, and the bill was rejected.

Timk and Monhy. Sickness
causes a loss of both time and 1
money. You lose the time and
have the expense of medical atten
dance, entailing a double loss. This
can be avoided by using some re
liable remedy at the first stage of
the sickness. The purchase of a
bottle of Chamberlain's Colic, Chol
era and Diarrhoea Remedy often
proves a profitable investment, for,
by its use at the first appearance of
of any uutisal looseness of the bow
els, a severeattack of diarrhoea or
dysentery may be averted, that
might otherwise compel a week's
cessation from labor. Kvery house
hold should have a bottle at hand.
It never fails and is pleasant to take.
