"There is money enough in the
Territorial Treasury to pay all
demands up to the 20th of this
month," said Treasurer Campbell
yesterday. "All warrants issued
since the 20th are being marked
payable on the 31st, and ctfn be
brought in on that date, although
it docs not follow that there will
be any money on hand to pay
"In other words, the warrants
issued before the 20th were mark
ed payable on that date, as we have
money enough on hand to meet
them. If they arc held out until
the 31st, they must then take their
chance with the warrants that are
marked payable on the last named
date. We will pay warrants up to
the 20th whenever they are pres
ented up to the last day of the
month. We will not hold money
to pay them after that date. It
will be first come, first served,
"And, after the funds are ex
hausted, the warrants must be
registered. The various banks, I
understand, arc holding out for two
per cent, for discounting warrants,
although I am trying to get them
to cash the warrants for one per
cent. I do not know, yer, what
success will attend my efforts. So
far, the disposition seems to be to
hold up. Still, I do not despair of
reaching some kind of arrange
ment." ''There were few warrants
brought in today," said Registrar
Henry Hapai, lifting a small bundle
up from his desk. "I think that
most of those outstanding now arc
held on the other islands. They
will begin to come in next week."
Around the Capitol there is a
decidedly blue feeling among office
holders at the prospect of having
salary warrants shaved and the
feeling is stronger because every
body is working double time, now,
getting ready for the coming session
of the legislature.
Delegate Ktihio makes public the
following letter, addiesscd to the
Honolulu evening papers:
"I would be very glad if you
would give publicity to the fact
that during the coming spring, Ha
waii's delegate will be entitled to
nominate one cadet each to the
naval acedemy at Annapolis and
the military academy at West
"Preliminary competitive exami
nations for both these appointments
will be held in February, under the
direction of Superintendent Atkin
son, from whom detailed informa
tion may be obtained.
"This preliminary examination
is open to hoys throughout the
Islands, who are between the ages
of 17 and 22, and is for my guid
ance in the nomination of one can
didate and two alternates for each
institution. The official examina
tion to select one of the three
designated for the Naval Academy,
will be held in Honolulu on April
18th. That for selection of one of
the three for the Military Academy
will be given in Honolulu on May
1st. In each case the candidate
named by me will be appointed
providing he pass a satisfactory ex
amination; in the event of his
failure, the alternate passing the
highest examination will receive

may bring out some strong candi

Govcuor Wiuthrop of Porto Uico,
in a conference with Secretary Wil
son of the Department of Agricul
ture, has been assured by the latter
of the hearthy co-operation of the
department in promoting the agri
cultural development of the island.
Scientific assistance will be given"
the inhabitants and everything pos
sible done for their help in these
Secretary Wilson pointed out the
number of crops for which vast
sums of money were paid annually
to foreign countries and which
should be grown in the newly ac
quired tropical possessions of this
country and told of efforts of the
department toward ultimately effect
ing this result.
He cited the coffee crop impor
tations into this country, for which,
he said, the American people pay
in the neighborhood of $70,000,000
annually to foreign countries, and
stated he hoped, by giving scientific
encouragement to the Porto Ricans,
to enable them to produce finer va
rieties of coffee in combination with
the greatest yielding varieties.
Secretary Wilson said that the
American people pay foreign coun
tries approximately $30,000,000
for rubber importations; $50,000,
000 for fiber and large sums for
drug plants, tropical and subtropi
cal fruits, spices, etc-
Some ofour pension statistics are
curious, says Success. For exam
ple, we learn that there are still on
the rolls three pensioners of the re
volutionary war, which was
brought to an end over one hun
dred and twenty years ago. Of
pensioners accredited to the war of
1812 there still remain 919, while
of the Mexican war no fewer than
'3i55 survive. Of those accredited
to the revolutionary war one is a
widow and two are daughters. The
report shows that pension payments
are made to people residing in
every state and territory in the
union, and in almost every known
country on the elobe. Among the
states Ohio leads in the amount of
pension money paid out annually to
its citizens, with Pennsylvania sec
ond. New York third and Illi
nois and Indiana following closely.
At the date of the report there were
4,910 pensioners residing outside
of the United States, and they drew
$722,440.69 in the last fiscal year.
Nearly hal of this money went to
persons in Canada. Quarterly pen
sion vouchers were sent besides to
persons in Mexico, South America,
every country in Europe, the
Azores, the Barbados, China, the
Comosa Isles, East and South Af
rica, Samoa, the Seychelles Islands,
Siam and St. Martin. It shows
that the pension bureau was a busy
office last year. More than 268,000
cases were passed upon,, and 153,
000 certificates were issued. No
fewer than 108,144 applications
were rejected, of which 83,000 were
thrown out on medical and 24,000
on legal grounds.
Lolltu Armour Reported Cured.
Lolita Armour, daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. J. Ogden Armour, will
return in a few days to Chicago.
She has been under the care of Dr.
Loreuz in Vienna for several
months. Mr. Armour, who return
ed to Chicago Saturday from New
York, said his daughter was so
much improved that her lameness
could scarcely be detected and it
did not iuterfere with her participa
tion in the childish sports and
pleasures for which she had yearned.
"I am glad to say," said Mr.
Armour, "that Lolita has greatly
improved. She can now walk and
run about like other children. Dr.
Iorenz's treatment has done wond
ers for her. She has been seven
months under his constant care.

surgeon first operated on the
