The Secretary then proceeded to rend
n voluminous tunssof correspondence, the
most iutcrtcstiiiK of which wns n number
of Utters which linil been exchanged be
tween Governor Curler mill the llonrd of
Trade over the public lands question. In
October Inst, the lloaid of Trade through
11 sub-committee undertook the Investi
gation of the alleged violation ofthe resi
dence clause 111 the public laud laws.
The Governor was nskfd to suspend any
action looking to the ejectment ot home
steaders pending the Investigation. He
at firt objected but later acquiesced in
the submission to the homesteaders of n
set of question regarding the conditio! s
of settlement, residence, etc. Prom the
mass of answers received to these quel
tions the Hoard of Trade formulated an
exhaustive report on the subject' sug.
geMlng a more lenient attitude toward
to the homesteaders on the pirt of the
ailmiuistratioii,tiiistead of driving settlers
oiTthe land by n too strict enforcement
of the law. In responding to this report
the Governor, called for the replies of
the various homesteaders to the various
questions submitted by the lloird of
Trade, but that body respectfully declin
ed, alleging that these nnswers were oh
tallied on the gimrnnlee that they would
be treated as confidential. The Governor
replied on Dec. sSlh that the lloird of
Trade report appears to have been made
ex parte, and in making the alleged in
vestigations the Hoard has been guided
by n purtKise, viz "to get nt the ndminis-
trntion". Henskcd whether the Hoard
was "composed of public spirited citizens,
willing to countenance defrauding the
government" mid whether the "standards
of its members nre so low that they would
enter into any such agreement". This
cnlled forth n very vigorous anil indig
nant reply on the pnrt of the Hoard of
Trade dated Jan. 19th, iu which nfttr
reviewing the facts and method of inves
tigation the Hoard denied the Governor's
charges and disclaimed any ulterior mo
tive to "get at the administration". It
says: "However, we nre of the opinion
thnt even the acts of n Governor are open
at all times to criticism. Nor docs it Imp
pen that your office carries with it the
right to insult with the immunity mem
bers of the regularly organized commer
cial bodies." No response to the last
letter of the Hoard of Trade has been re
ceived, and ns the fact of the interchange
of the very rnccy correspondence bet
ween the Kxccutivc and the Hoard hail
become well known, it was decided to
make the correspondence public- nt the
The Hnwniiaii Logging Company nil
dressed n communication to the Hoard
asking its support ofthe lumber business
in the islands and the question of discrim
ination iu the rates on koa logs practciced
by the Matson Navigation Line. It is
stated that the Lumber Company began
shipment of koa logs over the steamship
line to San Fruucisco iu Februnry, 1904.
Hight lots of lumber nggregnting 126,800
board feet were carried at the rate off 7. 50
per thousand, which was n rate agree
able both to the lumber company nud the
carriers. Immediately without the pre
vious notice, the rate was raised to f 25
which the writer alleges is an impossible
rite. The company have lying nt the
docks 60,000 feet of koa logs awaiting
shipment, but held up 011 account of the
excessive freight charge. The matter
was referred to the Committee on Trans
portation for investigation nnd report.
The extensive report of the Committee
on Varied Industries was read tit length
nud elicited considerable discussion.
The report wns complimented for its
value nud thoroughness, and it was sug
gested that the same be printed. The
funds of the Hoard however will not per
mit this being done. The various recoui-
I uieiidations were taken ill) seriatuui nud
the following committees appointed to
investigate the vnrious subjects. Organ

A Colilniiinloillnii, j
II11.0, March 22, 1905.
Sut: In your issue of March
21st, you refer to the King Sttect
Grade, in connection with an inter
view you had with tnc, in which
there seems to be sonic misunder
standing iu tcgnrd to what I did
actually say in the matter; and with
an idea of due justice to those men
tioned, without going into a dis
cussion of street intersection grades,
over which there is mutch diversity
of opinion, I would state that Mr.
Andrews did not arbitrarily change
the Grade, as stated, also neither
did Mr. Gere or I protest.
The facts arc these, owing to the
changed conditions on Bridge
Street, namely, the widcuing-"bf
said street from its old established
width of 42 feet, to 60 feet, it made
this Street the Larger Thoroughfare,
and on the principal that the main
streets should carry the right of
way, as faic as the intersection
grades, arc concerned; I favored
lowering the grade on the King
Street crossing, also Mr. 'Gere con
curred with me in tins; and as
.Sheriff Andrews was the only man
concerned iu this change, he being
the only one who had built a Gov
ernment side walk on King Street,
both Mr. Gere and I called on Mr.
Andrews, and went over the pro
posed change with him. Mr. Au
dreys said that he preferred to sec
the change made as he believed in
level street crossings, and said that
it would not be mutch of a job to
lower his side walk witlt Prison
labor, as soon as he obtained among
his prisoners some one capable of
doing the work.
Referring again to the old grade
of King Street, this was established
at that time according to the best
practice used in many citys, of con
tinuing un-broken over the inter
section, all grades of 3 per cent or
This change was only proposed
and made, as stated above, on the
principal of giving the wider street
the preferance of grade over the
narrower street. As an illustration,
if the propersition were turned
around, and the mutch wider and
longer street, such as Bridge Stwct,
ran up and down hill, iu the same
direction of King Street, the inter
section left as it was, on a 3 per
cent crossing, would have served
the Public both in convenience and
pleasing appearance mutch better
than if it was flattened to a level
crossing at the intersection.
E. D. BALDWIN.
The interview referred to, which I
appeared in these columns last
week, was an attempt at Mr. Bald
win's request to vindicate the es
tablishment by him of a grade for
King street, which was subsequently
changed leaving the sidewalks
there iu the present unsightly con
dition. The interview gave the
credit to former Sheriff Andrews for
the change in the grade, because of
that gentleman's insistancc upon
level street crossings. Surveyor
Baldwin and Engineer Gere were
understood to be of the same opin
ion that a three per cent was the
only proper grade for street cross
ings. It appears now, that Mr.
Baldwin has not been properly re
ported and that Mr. Gere has'been
misquoted, despite two separate
talks with Mr. Baldwin on the sub
ject. Iu order to do justice to all
concerned, Mr. Baldwin has pre
pared the above very lucid state
ment, which is printed verbatim.
Ordered to Cut Their (JrtcilPA. j
Tue cable dispatches from China
brings the news that the empress
dowager has issued an edict requir
ing all of the soldiers in the army
to wear European dress and cut oil
their queues. Her orders have
already been obeyed in the province
of Honati. The viceroy ofHonan,
who has been so prompt in carrying
out these instructions, has n sou be
ing educated in the United States,
and the youngster had not been si
weeks in this country before he cut
off his own queue to escape the
teasing of his schoplmates. The
viceroy was gieatly shocked when
he heard the news, because a
young man without a queue in
China is quite as conspicuous as a
young man in the United States
would be with one. It was diff-
cnlt to reconcile the old gentleman
to the situation, but he seems to
have obeyed his imperial orders in
that respect very promptly.
I.i Using Jui, for many years
viceroy at Nanking, who recently
died of old age, has been succeeded
by Chott Fu, recently governor of
Shantung province, who is regarded
as one ol the most progressive and
enterprising officials iu China
This illustrates the reform tenden
cies of the empress, and is full proof I
that she is iu earnest iu her deter
mination to modernize China. Chou
Fit was one of the group of able
and progressive young men who
surrounded L,i Hung Chang while
he was viceroy of the metropolitan
province, He has a large foreign
acquaintance, a foreign education,
and is a cordjul supporter of tlje
missionaries. He was recently en
gaged in negotiating the new treaty
with Minister Conger.

Fred C. Sheldon, of the firm of Woods
nud Sheldon, Honolulu,, while on n visit
to the Volcano it couplu of weeks ago,
looked over the ground about the Vol
cano House with reference to forming n
golf links there, He believes suitable
ground can be found to make nil 18 hole
cour.se and is taking the proposition up
witli Manager Oiorge Lycurgus. The
proposed course is on land adjoining the
Volcano House property but it is believ
ed il can be secured at 11 nominal rental
or without cost. Local golf enthusiasts
are taking a great interest in the project,
and il is hoped that il may not be long
until a visit to the crater hotel may have
the additional utttactioii of golf, which
in that higher altitude would form n
pleasant recreation for hotel guests.
