lOUSE AND SENATE
0VEftR!BE GOVERNOR'S ACTION
Honolulu, March 29. The Governor today vetoed the Qttinii Sunday
bill, providing for a mote liberal Sabbath, and the House promptly passed
the bill over lite veto.
Honolulu, March 31. The Senate passed the Sunday law over the
In rcfusiiiR to sign the Qttinn Sunday bill, Governor Carter .sought to
scenic 11 more perfect measure, although cat Tying out the same idea. In
returning the bill to the Legislature the Governor said:
"Leaving all religious aspects out of the question, I do not believe
there has been sufficient consideration of the present Sunday law, nor of
this proposed act. There is much misapprehension in regard to the
present law, which is not confined exclusively to members of the Legis
lature: and there is a general impression that if the present law were
enforced, restaurants and coffee shops would be closed, street cars stopped
and all private games and amusement"' prohibited.
"An examination of the statutes on this subject in twenty different
Slates shows that our present law is not as blue' as pictured, nor is it
strict, bigoted or antiquated. As a rule, the New England States pro
hibit all recreation on Sunday, as well as hunting and fishing. The
Southern States do not restrict recreation, but join those of New England
in prohibiting hunting and fishing; while such States as Ohio and Indiana
make their restrictions apply to persons over fourteen years of age.
"It must be admitted by all that the present law regulating the observ
ance of the Sabbath could undoubtedly be amended to advantage. The
ideal which should be aimed at is to provide a day of rest, recreation and
religious worship, and so draft a law that each person would be free to
observe the day in any way that does not interfere with the observance
of it by others.
"The bill is not clear in its expression. After a careiul study, I am
forced to the opinion that the present law, with its defects, is better and
can be more readily enforced than this bill in its present shape."
The vote in the House overriding the veto was as follows:
Ayes Audrndc, Aylett, Coelho, Copp, Cox, Fernandez, Greenwell,
Haia, Harris, Kalawaia, Kaleiopu, Long, Mahelona, Pali, Quitin, Rice,
Sheldon, Shipman, Smith, Waterhotise, Knudsen 27. Noes Broad,

China Making Prepararions.
London, England, March 31. China proposes reorganizing her army
and recreating her navy so as to be able to defy Russia within ten years.
Will Demand An Indemnity.
London, England, March 31. Minister Takahashi declares that as
the present war will cost Japan $550,000,000 it is not likely that she will
waive an indemnity. She will certainly demand her expenses. The
Russian assumption that a prolongation of the war would deplete Japan's
resources is unfounded, as the country is making remarkable progress.

the administration of Manchuria. They have three lines of railway

Washington, March 29. Neutral powers have been warned that Ja

- Inter-Island Will Absorb Wilders.
meeting held yeslcr-
buy out the Wilder
with capital stock at
Honolulu, March 30. At the adjourned annual
day the Intcr-Islaud Steamship Company voted to
Company and consolidate the two steamship lines,
a million ami a halt.
This is the same proposition which has been before the two com
panies for some time, since the control of the Wilder S. S. Co. passed
into the hands of the principal stockholders of the other company by the
purchase of the stock of the S. G. Wilder Estate. A committee on mer
ger was appointed and the action taken is the result of their report.
The present capital of the Inter-Island Company is $600,000. Half of
the new capitalization will be credited to the shareholders of the Wilder
Company, and the remaining half assumed by the stockholders of the
Inter-Island. Hy the merger lite Intei-Islaud Company will have $160,
000 additional assets and a reserve fund of $100,000. It is reported that
the price to be paid for the Wilder stock is $109 per share. It is rum
ored that President Kennedy of the Inter-Island will be general manager
of the amalgamated company and C. L. Wight assistant manager. No
change will be made in the freight rates, although there is likely to be a
change in steamer schedules, giving to the public a better passenger,
freight and mail service.

Madam Pele Takes a Rest. 9
On Friday the fire in the pit of Kilnuea began to subside, and on Sat
urday no glow was visible whatever. There arc explosions of gas at
: intervals and a steady volume of steam and sulphcr vapor rises from the
' cone where the former activity occured. D. Lycurgus, the manager of
;the Volcano House, who has become an expert on volcanoes, asserts
j thiit the cessation of activity is only temporary, and will be followed by
a larger demonstration than has ever been witnessed before. Five io,
'ooo callou wiiter tanks have been constructed, with a capacity of a year's
! water supply, and J. M. Cameron is installing a complete system of
Honolulu, March 30. Albert F. Judd, appointed special commissioner
to investigate the Department of Education, makes a damaging report to
Governor Carter, declaring Superintendent Atkinson to be incompetent,
Dr. Rodgers as too old, and Miss Rose Davidson's irregularities demand
ing a judicial investigation.
The entire administration of the Department of Education is sharply
criticized. It was shown that Miss Davidson was in the habit of accept
ing I. O. U's from employes of the department, making out vouchers for
labor for them and having these vouchers endorsed over to her. From
January 1, 1904, to January 31, 1905, there has been expended in Miss
Davidson's district, under her supervision as school agent, the sum of
$3i336.89 for repairs, and $1,762.9.5 for furniture and fixtures. All con
tracts were verbal between Miss Davidson and the employes, no record
being kept. Superintendent Atkinson had uo knowledge of the school
book fund, when it was shown that Wall, Nichols & Co. were indebted
to the department to the extent of $167.50, and the Hawaiian News Co.
for $187.00. While not charging forgery of a signature, a comparison
of the endorsement of voucher No. 8475, assigned by D. Kalimahana to
Miss Davidson, with other endorsements on other vouchers purporting
to have been made by D. Kalimahana, leads to the conclusion that the
signature in question was not written by Kalitnahana. The department
had no definite knowledge of the lauds held by it or under lease. Unre
corded leases and deeds were found in the safe, of which there was no
record in the office. Three school inspectors have been appointed with
out authority to inspect schools, when the law requires Superintendent
Atkiusiu to make such visits. The report recommends the reorganiza
tion of the department. With reference to Dr. Rot)gers, it is suggested
that a more energetic man could be found to take his place. Atkinson
lacks business methods or knowledge of his department. With reference
to the irregularities of Miss Davidson, the report suggests that any fur
ther investigation into the misapplication of funds be conducted by the
