charge of the Government of the
Territory, to be cared for and main
tained by it for its own use "until
otherwise provided by Congress or
taken for the uses nnd purposes of
the United States" (section 91,
Organic Act), the above provisions
making such property the property
of the comities to be sold or leased
by them, is an attempt to amend
section 91 of the Organic Act, and
nlbo. section 73, neither of which
can be amended ixcept by Cong
ress The provisions referred to are un
necessary for the due administra
tion of county government, as sec
tion 482 provides that it is "the in
tention of this Act that'iu all cases
where by this Act any county officer
or board is charged with the
formaucc of any duties
performed by Territorial officials,
the use of all property heretofore
used by such Territorial officials for
the discharge of such duties, shall
be transferred to such county officer
Chapter 69 relating to the trans
fer of Territorial water works to the
counties where such water works
arc situated is considered as of
doubtful legality, as being inconsis
tent with section 91 of the Organic
Act. It is held that under the sec
tion of the Organic Act authorizing
the Legislature to create counties
and town and city municipalities,
etc., such public property belonging
to the United States but held by
the Territorial- Government, which
is obviously necessary for the in
ternal administration of such subor
dinate governments, may be turned

Car'tci, Secretary of the Territory,
saying he had the honor to inform
the Senate that the Governor had
signed Act 31, providing for the
Organization of Counties and Dis
tricts and the Government thereof.
The communication was received
with dead silence by the Senate.
There was not even a murmur of
Senator Kalauokalaui, however,
shortly revealed his opinion that it
was an occasion' to celebrate. After
a conference committee had inter
vened, the Home Rule leader arose
and proposed that three cheers be
given for the County Bill as signed
by the Governor. He also sug
gested adjournment for the day in
honor of the event, saying it was
something that made him feel joy
ful. There was no response to the
lone enthusiast but a general laugh,
and then President Crabbe'said:
"The rules are suspended to al
low Senator Kalauokalaui to
This caused more laughter and
the Senator smiled back at the Re
Immediately after adjournment
Senator Dickey made it all right by
nroposiiiR three cheers for the
County Bill and the "grave and
reverend seignors' ' responded to the
best of their ability. The Gover
nor's message suggesting correc
tions for the County Bill was read
in the Senate this afternoon.

power to go further, and the Terri
torial Government may.not, under
the responsibility imposed upon it
by section 91 and section 73, sur
render such property as is not
necessary for the internal .adminis
tration of such subordinate govern
ments. Section 171 and Section 172 re
lating to boundaries are held to be
an attempt to amend Section 73 of
the Organic Act, which provides
that the laws of Hawaii relating to
the settlement of boundaries, ex
cept as changed by such act, "shall
continue in force until Congress
shall otherwise provide."
Section 384 providing for Terri
torial Board of Public Institutions
couflicts with the 22nd division of
Section 22, which gives County
Boards of Supervisors jurisdiction
and power to provide for the work
ing of prisoners confined in County
jails under conviction of misde
meanor; and also with division 6 of
Section 90, which provides that the
County Sheriff shall "take charge
of and keep the County jail and
Section 483 provides that "im
mediately after the passage of this
Act, it shall be the duty of the Ter
ritorial Board of Public Institutions
by this Act provided for, to organ
ize in the manner required herein."
As other provisions of the Act
refer to the fourth day of January,
1904, as the time when such Board
shall begin to exercise its powers,
the provision of Section 483 must
contain a mistake as to the time for
its organization, which should be
January 4U1, 1904.

Honolulu, April 23. Treas
ury Agent MacLennan was at
his desk , in the First National
Bank for the firs,t time this morn
ing. He has made good recovery
from his illness but is yet a little
When asked about" the dispens
ing of the fire claims million Mr.
MacL,ennan said there was nothing
to report. With a bid made for but
one of the four percent bonds there
seems to be no immediate prospect
of realizing cash for the payment
of claimants. Mr. MacLeniian sug
gested that the difficulty might be
overcome by some of the claimants
acceptjng a portion of their awards
in bonds at par. If the claimants
having awards of $1000 or over
will agree to take the bonds pro
rata, Mr. MacLennau will then be
in a position to dispense payments
immediately on receipt of the certi
fied schedule from the Governor.
The situation is thus very much in
the hands of the large claimants.
Nothing can be done however
with, either bonds or cash till the
Treasury agent receives the properly
approved schedule of awards from
Governor Dole. This important
detail has yet to be completed so
there is still quite a waiting period
Mr. McLennan, besides handling
the fire claims fund, will close up
some final details in the redemption
of the old Hawaiian debt. The
final payment he is ready to mnke
on the presentation of the bonds
amounts to $11,100 and will doubt
less be used by the Territory to call
in a portion of the 1896 loan. This
$11,000 represents $5,000 from the
1896, $100 from the loan of 1892
and $6000 saved in the Loudon
loan which was taken up at 4.87
instead of 4.90 as expected, thus
saving a good margin for the bene
fit of the Territory.
