overtures for n governmental part
ncrship, by asking that it might he
permitted to pay a royalty upon its
gross receipts. Its application for
a franchise confirming its present
rights on that basis is now under
consideration. Nothing has grati
fied me, as Chairman of our com
mittce, so much as this incident.
Nor could the corporation have
taken a wiser step in its own in
tercst. For, when the Government
has once become its partner, with
a right, to regulate charges and pro
tect the company from damaging
rivalry as long as its serves the
public with reasonable satisfaction,
success is practically nssured. That
is the result in Porto Rico. There
arc no moribund enterprises of any
kind in that island.
"One of the questions brought
up for corsideratiou very early in
the life of the insular government
was the duration of franchises. The
first applicants demanded long terms
and a few were granted. But a
little later the committee, after
mature reflection, reached the con
clusion that only in exceptional
cases' should a term of a franchise
be longer than forty years. In
some instances it is less: but in
view of the fact that there is no
city on the island with a large
population to use such public facil
ities and thus to increase the pro
fits of such enterprises, the com
mittee finally agreed that forty
years was not too long to enable a
company to reap an adequate re
turn on the capital invested.
"Notwithstanding these condi
tions, which, contrasted with the
ordinances granted in some of the
cities of the United States, seemed
to some persons vigorous and unin
viting, capital has been eager to in
vest iu Porto Rico. The latest
enterprise inaugurated is an elec
tric line across the island, over the
mountains from San Juan to Ponce.
It involves the expenditure of not
less that $3,000,000."
Uuiuii Has Cable.
Honolulu, June 5. Cable con
nection has been established be
tween Guam and Manila, and there
fore with the rest of the world.
This fact was established yesterday
when the Pacific Commercial Cable
Company was notified that the line
had been laid and that the final
splice would be made immediately.
The information carried through
the cable was that the cable ship
Colonia had reached Guam on May
27, while the Anglia did not reach
that island until June 2. This
would further indicate that the pro
ceeding was similar to that here,
when two days were spent in get
ting ready for the shore end and
the final splice. It is understood
that the two ships will leave Guam
at once. The Colonia will lay the
cable between that island and Mid
way, while the Anglia will make
the trip light and will have the
shore end laid at Midway, when
the Colonia gets there with the
deep sea line.
It is not thought'thatjt will con
sume more than fourteen days to
put down the middle section of the
trans-Pacific line. In that event
the completion of the through cable
system may be advanced a day or
two from the time now set, July 2.
The last message indicated that
everyone was in good health and
that the line was going down finely.
Everything here is ready for the
reception of the cable and should it
be possible for it to be strung to
day, there would be found no hitch
in the arrangements for working
the through service.

ney Newman, a well known drug
gist, committed suicide this morn
ing nt his residence on King street
iu the McCully tract, near Pawun
lane. He shot himself iu the right
temple with a revolver. Financial
difficulties led to the man taking
his life. The circumstances im
mediately proceeding his suicide,
were quite dramatic. People living
iu the same house with him, de
clare that he was hounded to his
death by the pharmacy law passed
at the last session of the legislature.
A coroner's inquest was held at
the police station at 110011 today to
determine the cause of death of
Edwin R. Newman, H. Culmati,
who was the first person to reacft
the side of Newman after the latter
had shot himself, testified to the
circumstances regarding the shoot
ing. A certificate from Dr. Her
bert explaining the nature of the
wound and giving the cause of
death, was read. Deputy .High
Sheriff Chilliugworth made a state
ment to the jury regardiug'the case.
The jury returned that the deceased
had come to his death from the
effects of a bullet wound iu the
head, said wound having been in
flicted with suicidal intent.
The remains of the deceased were
taken in charge by II. H. Williams.
The funeral will be held tomorrow
afternoon from the residence of W.
W. Hall. The interment will be
in Nutianu Cemetery.
' Newman had been intending to
open up a new drug store at tha
Ewa-makai corner of Fort and
Hotel streets. His prospects seem
ed excellent up to within a few
days ago. His wife and two little
children arrived from the mainland
on the S. S. Siberia lust Monday
morning. Newman moved his
family to a cottage in the McCully

His wife seemed instinctively to ap

last two nights she has been unable
to sleep, so nervous and hysterical
had she become from worrying over
her husband's troubles. Newman
too was worried beyond measure.
He was unable to sleep. He spoke
of his business troubles. The ar
rival of his family seemed to in
crease his worry. Two nights ago,
Mrs. Newman became so wrought
up from worrying about their
troubles, that she became hysteri
