Supply Conl racls.
Honolulu, Dec. :o. Governor
Carter will investigate diaries made
by the Merchants' Association that
government employees are selling
supplies to the government and
bidding on public contracts. The
Merchants' Association objects to
the practice of employees, whose
salaries they help pay in taxes, and
who conduct their business from
government offices, selling supplies
to the Territory.
This objection is strongly stated
in the following letter sent to Gov
ernor Carter in which there is the
intimation that the practice borders
on the criminal:
Honolulu, Nov. 27. roo3.
Hon. Geo. R. Carter, Governor
Territory of Hawaii, Honolulu,
Sir: It has come to the notice of
this Association that certain govern
ment employes are selling supplies
to the government and bidding on
government contracts. At a recent
meeting of the Board of Directors
of the Merchants' Association I was
directed to communicate with you
in relation thereto and to protest
against its continuance. We believe
the business men of the Territory,
who pay the taxes, licenses, rents
and hire employes should alone be
allowed to furnish government sup
plies and bid on government con
tracts, and we submit that it is
manifestly unjust that employes of
the government, whose salaries are
paid by the business community,
whose offices are indirectly supplied
them by the government and who
pay no taxes, licenses or rents
should be allowed to compete
directly or indirectly. Aside from
the moral aspect there are certain
criminal features and on the main
land in almost every State of the
Union this is made a penal offense.
For the results of this practice we
would refer you to the present
postal frauds, St. Louis and other
scandals which are constantly being
brought to light throughout the
Union. We feel certain that by
bringing the matter to your notice
at this time that the practice will
be stopped before it has been al
lowed to reach such proportions.
I am respectfully,
P. R. HELM,
Secretary Merchants' Association
At the meeting of the Executive
Cummittee of the Merchants' As
sociation yesterday the reply was
received from Governor Carter and
the correspondence given out. Mr.
Carter promised to take the matter
His letter was as follows:
Honolulu, Dec. 5, 1903.
Hon. G. W. Smith, Vice-President
Merchants' Association, Hono
lulu. Djar Sir: I beg to acknowledge
the receipt of the communication
from your Secretary, dated Novem
ber 27th, calling attention to the
fact that employees of the govern
ment are selling supplies to the
government and bidding on govern
The matter will receive due con
sideration and I thank you for call
ing attention to the fact.
Very sincerely yours,
G. R. CARTER,
Japs ATlcr County Act.
Honolulu, Dec. 10. When F.
M. Hatch readies Washington and
attempts to secure the enactment of
the county law by Congress, he is
likely to run up against interna
tional complications. M. Saito, Jap
anese Consul General lur Hawaii,
has written to the Japanese Minister
at Washington in regard to the
county act and the latter has agreed
to protect the Japanese in Hawaii
in their treaty rights, which they
claim are threatened in the hack
man's license clause. This section
compels every hackman to be able
to read and write the English or
Hawaiian language, and the Japa
nese claim that they are being dis
criminated against. Council Saito
said yesterday that lie had no ob
jection to the county actus a whole,
but that he did intend to fight the

Honolulu, Dec. 9. At n confer-1'
ence yesterday morning between '
General MacArthtir and n commit
tee from the Merchants' Associa
tion, the commander of the Depart-1
ment of California, which includes1
Hawaii, gave n positive assurance
that Honolulu would ;;tl an army
post. The association on the other
hand assured General MacArthur
of its hearty support and its desire I
to assist him in every way possible ,
during his stay in the islands.
The Merchants' Association also
assured General MacArthur that
supplies would be furnished to the
army at reasonable rates and that
there would be no attempt to hold
up the United States government.
The members of the committee who
visited the General were G. W.
Smith, F. W. Macfarland, P. R.
Helm and R. H. Trent. The con
ference was lengthy and General
MacArthur outlined the results of
his investigations in the islands. 1
General MacArthur believes
strongly in the necessity for mak
ing the Island of Oahti impregnable.
He told the committee that he con
sidered Oahtt the key to the entire
group from a strategical point of
view. He says that the recommen
dations of the Ileuer board, if fol-1
lowed out would make th; island
one of tlie strongest fortified places
in the urn Id. General MacArthur
will pro! ib!r recommend that the
plans of . is hoard be followed out
in dealing with the situation here.
Pearl Harboi will be made impreg
nable and then there will be a
strong mobile lorce to repel any
attempts at landing General Mac
Arthur believes that the force to be
finally stationed here will consist of
a regiment of infantry and two bat
teries of field artillery. With this
force and the aid of the local forces
General MacArthur thought that
3,000 men could be counted upon
to resist attacks. General MacAr
thur told the committee that the
date for the establishment of the
army post depended entirely upon 1
the action of Congress in making I
appropriations. It is pretty WOll
settled that the post will lie estab
lished at Kahauiki but leases upon
that property, which is owned in
fee by the United States, will first
have to be obtained. This will now '
have to await a new appropriation
by Congress. The lease owners
are ready to sell their rights but '
there has been some delay in nego
tiations. It is the intention as has
already been often stated, to post
shore batteries in a position to pro
tect Pearl Harbor from either side,
while there will also be field artillery
force to repel land attacks.
To Pkkvknt Croui', begin in
time. The first symptom is hoarse
ness; this is soon followed by a
peculiar rough cough, which is
easily recognized and will never bii
forgotten by one who has heard it.
The time to act is when the child
first becomes hoarse. If Chamber
lain's Cough Remedy is freely ,
given, all tendency to croup will
soon disappear. Even after the
croupy cough has developed, it will 1
prevent the attack. There is no
danger in giving this remedy as it
contains nothing injurious. It al
ways cures and cures quickly. The
Ililo Drug Store sells it. 1
