j will be no $725,000 in the Treasury
to be divided among the counties,

$60,000; Kauai, $45,000.
"Said amounts shall be paid in
the manner required by law for
other payments from the Treasury
of the Territory to the Treasurer of
the County upon his qualification."
Speaking on the subject this
morning, Secretary Carter said: "In
view of the heavy appropriations
I made by the Legislature for the six
I months preceeding the coming
into effect of the County Act there
will be no such amount as $725,000

An attempt of the Chinese in
Formosa to establish a republic
proved abortive, so that by October,
1895, the Japanese had secured
military occupation of the island,

For several years, indeed, regular

by Chinese bandits and the abori-,

outbreaks are experienced.
Formosa is far to the south of
Japan and although connected with
Japan by cables the Japanese fear

on April 22nd. The question of
finances was not taken up until the
special session of the Legislature
and the result ol the work then
was that appropriations were made
tor six months amounting to over
two millions of dollars. These two
millions were for'the use of the Ter
ritory until the County Act should
come into force. The Legislature
didn't stop to think that there
would be no surplus. ,
"Taking its appropriations for
the six months and adding the $725,

amount of $725,000 as things ap
