Legislature Closes Session ut Last
With Work Finished.
Honolulu, July n. Everything
has been calm and serene in the
Legislature today. Whatever
differences have been made mani
fest in the House have completely
disappeared and the reigning senti
ment is that the interests of the
people shall be conserved. This
was clearly shown this morning
when the members by an almost
unanimous vote, sent six and eigh
teen months salaries bill and the
Loan Act to the Governor. I?or
this calming of the troubled waters
the people of the Territory may
thank Speaker Becklcy, who, when
ever there have been rough places
to cross, has invariably interposed
and shown the meuibers the path
way to amicable settlement. It
was his .voice that sent the six
months bill on its way rejoicing at
the forenoon session and it was his
voice that cleared up every vestige
of doubt with refdrence to the Loan
Act until such stubborn fighters as
Kaniho and Oili bowed in submis
sion and voted "aye" in the inter
ests ol the people.
In calm and dignified language,
the Speaker deprecated the attempts
of a section of the press to discredit
the native Hawaiiaus and their
honest efforts and showed the mem
bers the means by which they could
show to the world that the contrary
is the fact.
This is the 6oth day and tonight,
long before midnight, the Legisla
ture will adjourn sine die, with
every bill brought before it, passed
and sent up to the Governor and
with a feeling that the action taken
at various stages has been in ac
cordance with the dictates of the
consciences of the respective members.
Turbines for Channel Service.
A new steamer, to be propelled by
steam turbines, was launched re
cently at Dumbarton, from the yard
of Denny Brothers, for the cross
channel service of the Southeastern
and Chatham Railway. The new
vessel is of the same type, though
larger, as the vessels have been suc
cessful on the Clyde. The machinery
will consist of Parson's turbines,
three being fitted with three lines
of shafting. In maneuvering, the
center shaft runs free and the two
side shafts then take the place of
ordinary twin screws. The build
ers have undertaken that this ves
sel shall have an average sea speed
of twenty-one knots, and it is ex
pected that the vessel will perform
the voyage from Dover to Calais in
forty-five to fifty minutes..
Where Iron and Steel do.
The question has often been
asked, Where does all the steel ond
iron manufactured in this country
go? According to an estimate,
based on the orders on the books of
the United States Steel Corporation,
it appears that 45 per cent of the
finished steel and iron is 'used by
the railroads in rails, locomotives,
freight and passenger cars, repairs,
bridges, etc. About 20 per cent is
used in the construction of bridges,
skyscrapers and other buildings.
The electric street railways con
sume about 7 per cent in equipment
and rails. About, 8 per cent is used
in the form of cast iron pipe. Agri
cultural implements and farming
machines consume 6 per cent. The
remaining 14 per cent is consumed
in miscellaneous products.

Home, Italy, July 8. Pope Leo

COUN'TV ACT Al'l'KAL.
Supremo Court to Pass on Validity or
Honolulu, July 10. The contro
versy arising over the matter of the
Hoard of Public Institutions, under
the County Act, suit brought by
Governor Sauford II. Dole and others
making up the Board of Public
Institutions against Henry K.
Cooper, to show cause why he
should not turn over the Public
Works Department, is now appealed
to the Supreme Court of the Terri
tory from Judge Gear's decree
denying the order to show cause
and quashing the alternative writ
dated Honolulu, May 21.
Judge Gear today signed a decree
denying a peremptory writ of man
damus and discharging the order to
show cause, giving judgment for
respondent Henry E. Cooper,
Superintendent of Public Works,
Attorney General Andrews
immediately noted an appeal to the
Memorial To Hessenier.
The agitation has begun in Eng
land for the establishment by popu
lar subscription of a memorial to
Sir Henry Bessemer, says the New
York Tribune. If any man de
serves such an honor it is certainly
the one who enormously extended
the application of steel by cheapen
ing the operation of making it.
Other factors have played a part in
the reduction of the cost from $250
to 20 or 25 a ton in less than
half a century; but by far the most
influential is the process which
bears this great inventor's name.
Every man, woman and child in
every civilized country, and millions
of people still living in barbarism,
have been benefited directly or in
directly thereby. More than five
years have elapsed since Sir Henry's
death. Hence the movement now
on foot can scarcely be regarded as
premature. Moreover, his mqrit
received very little formal recogni
tion during his lifetime. He was
made a baronet, not on account of
his metallurgical achievements, but
in compensation for a stamp can
celing device of his which the
government adopted without other
payment. There is all the more
reason, therefore, for posthumous
appreciation of his services.
Suicide by Smoking.
One of the most extraordinary
suicides on' record is reported from
Pesth. Baron Rela Oluyi, a
wealthy citizen, deliberately pois
oned himself by smoking cigars
and tobacco to excess. The Baron
had lost a large fortune in specula
tion. Having a wife and six chil
dren, he insured himself very
heavily on their behalf in five com
panies, and then proceeded to put
into operation his unique plan for
He -hired a small room in a mean
portion of the city, and in ten
months died of what the doctors
called "galloping consumption."
But the insurance companies un
earthed the Baron's secret plot, and
found that he had poisoned himself
by consuming 3500 cigars and
about 100 pounds of tobacco. Lon
New York, N. Y., July 7.
Count Cassini, Russian Ambassador
to the United States, sailed for St.
Petersburg today. Although it is
customary for Count Cassini to visit
St. Petersburg during the summer
there seems to be considerable ques
tion whether he will return, owing
to the dissatisfaction of the Czar
with the manner 111 which he has
handled the Mauchuriau question
and the recent agitation of the treat
ment of Russian Jews.
Dvskntkky causes the death of
more people than smallpox and
yellow fever combined. In an army
it is drea'ded more than a battle.
It requires prompt and effective
treatment. Chamberlain's Colic,
Cholera, and Diarrhoea Remedy
has been used in nine epidemics of
dysentery in the United States with
perfect success, and has cured the
most malignant cases both of chil
dren and adults, and under the
most trying conditions. Every
household should have a bottle at
hand. Get it today. It may save
a life. The Hilo Drug Co. sells it.
