Senator Brown will go to Hono
lulu this week with a comity gov
ernment bill in his inside pocket.
He will interrupt the chaplain in
his opening prayer in the endenvor
to make the Hilo county bill mini
I her one on the list of mcasuies in
1 troduced at the special session.
1 This bill is said to be favored by
the senators and representatives of
this side of the Island of the Home
Rule faith. It is claimed by iti
supporters that the bill has been so
drawn that the objections of the
Supreme Court will not prevail
against it. Its framers propose to
have it go into effect in thirty days
a celerity altogether unknown to I j vjcw 0r ti,c near approach of a
the Loan Fund appropriation bill. ;session 0f the Legislature, I believe
The Hilo county bill to be intro-1 woud i)e wen for your organi7.a.
duced by Senator Brown is a com- tion t0 tnke up Already forty-one
positc of the best wisdom of Home ! contracts for improvements have
! Rule statesmen of this Island. Thejbeenlet by Superintendent Hol-
work of drawing it up was done by
1 J. U. Smith, who is confident that
the measures will stand the test of
popular criticism and judicial scru
tiny. The bill or bills which nre
four iu number provide that they
fchall take effect April 30, 1904.
The officials who were elected by
the November ballots of last year
are to hold office iu the several
counties for the first eight months.
After January 1, 1905. the Gover
nor shall appoint the county com
missioners. A bare majority only
shall be appointed from any politi
cal party. The salaries of county
officials are to be fixed as they were
under the old law. The bonds are
to be reduced. County commis
sioners will receive only $25 per
month with five dollars per day for
actual time served, sessions to be
limited to five days in each mouth.
The commissioners arc to have
power to contract for transcripts of
the land records in the Register's
office at Honolulu and transfer them
to the respective counties.
The surveyor is to receive a small
salary and a per diem when work
ing. No County Auditor is provided
for, all auditing of books of County
officials to be done by the Terri
torial Auditor who shall have extra
compensation for such service.
The County Government scheme
is to be effected by the passage of
four acts. Senator Brown says he
will put the bills through as slick
as a cat.

1,01111 Fund Appropriation.
A conimunicatioii which nrouscri
deep interest nt the meeting of the
Hoard of Trndc of Hilo Inst Satur
day evening was submitted by Mr.
Stacker and read by Secretary Tur
ner. The letter deals with facts
concerning the I.oau bill appropria
tions for this Island and the Island
of Oahu. It follows in full.
Hii.o, March 25, 1904.
Mr. L. Turner,
1 Sec'y Hilo Board of Trndc.
Sir: I find in n Honolulu news
paper of recent date reference to ap
propriations under the Loan Fund.
There are matters in connection
wjtn the published statement which,
loway, and of this number five, for
school houses, arc on Hawaii. In
addition to the school houses there
is a contract for work on the road
between the Volcano House and
Pahala. The total amount to be
expended on that road is not given,
but the sum total of the contracts
for the school houses is $8,035
And this is all that has been done
thus far for this island. Let me
quote figures for Oahu, the con
tracts having been let for
School houses f7595-oo
Storm sewers 5,842.13
Wlinrf extension 53327oo
Dredging harbor 5,900.00
New jail 16,865.00
Street extension 8,677.14
In addition to the above there are
appropriations under the loan fund
and money available, for street ex
tension, and purchase right of way,
in Honolulu: $140,000. Contracts
have been let for sewer and water
pipe and for dredging harbor (ad
ditional), in which the figures are
There is such a difference in the
amount of work contracted for on
Oahu and that on Hawaii that I be
lieve your Board should take some
steps toward an investigation as to
the flagrant discrimination. Once
work is started on the contracts for
this island the financial situation
will change and the stringency will
be relieved to a certain extent. It
is said that Mr. Gere is to furnish
data for sewer work.
It occurs to me that such matters
arc within the province of a Board
of Trade such as yours to handle
I Under the loan fund many thous
and dollars were appropriated for
this island and it seems almost
criminal to allow the money to re-
' main in the treasury when it is
1 needed by the people. I believe an
'effort on the part of the Board of
Trade will bring results that will
. be pleasing to the public and now
is the time to act.

Washington, Mnrch 22. The I
Senate Committee on Pacific Islands ,
reported fnvorably on a grist of
Hawaiian bills today. The com-'
mittcc gives its approval of the bill
for the appointment of the Super
intendent of Public Instruction to
collect labor statistics in Hawaii.
It also acted favorably on the bills
confirming the franchise for the
manufacture of gas and for the
electric light and power system iu
To Press Tost Cast-.
Honolulu, March 23. There
wns some talk today of the appro
priation bills test case being aban
doned on account of the calling of
the special session of the Legisla
ture, it being said that the law
makers work would render a Su
prcmc Court decision iu the matter
of financial procedure unnecessary.
Briefs have been filed, however,
and Deputy Attorney General K.
C. Peters states that the test case
will be pressed.
Washington, March 23. The
Chinese Government has formally
denounced the Exclusion Treaty
with this country, so that it expires
on December 27th.
St. Petersburg, March 23. The
Russian Vladivostok squadron is
still at that port. The report of its
having escaped to join the Port
Arthur fleet is denied.
What is Pnlii llnlmt
Chamberlain's Pain Balm is a
liniment, and while adapted to all
the ordinary uses of a liniment, has
qualities which distinguish it from
other remedies of this class. Pain
Balm is especially beneficial for
rheumatism. Thousands of cases
can be cited in which this remedy
has effected a cure when the sufferer
had previously tried the best medi
cal service without securing relief.
Pain Balm is'positively guaranteed
to give relief in the most severe
cases of chronic or acute rheuma
tism. Pain Balm heals bruises, burns
and scalds in less time than any
other treatment. It is" "antiseptic,"
that is, it prevents putrefaction, and
b so doing generally prevents an
unsightly scar remaining after the
injury is healed. For lame back,
lumbago and neuralgia, Pain Balm
has no equal. It has the quality of
"getting to the right spot." No
sufferer from these distressing affec
tions should deter a trial of this
remedy. One application gives re
lief. Try it. The Hilo Drug Store
