sonable he would nsk the Legislature for an appropriation for its pur
chase and secure a title to the tract. In the opinion of Superintendent
Holloway this is more advisable than granting a government lease of the
land to the Park Hoard. For this reason he did not sign the lease ol the
laud, which had been prepared by the Hoard of Trade and forwarded to
him. The leasehold for sixteen years is held by Toliu T. Raker nnd

Olona Fiber Samples.
The Hoard of Trade is having prepared samples of Olona fiber for the
purpose of submitting the same to experts and manufacturers, with a
view of finding a mnrket for the product, which is growing wild on the
mountain slopes of Hawaii. It is stated that the tensile strength of olo
na is equal to the best Manila hemp, and its durability is unexcelled by
any other known rope fiber. Speeiments of olona fishline used years
ago by native fishermen attest to its durability and strong qualities.
A special program has been arranged by the literary committee of the
Hoard of Trade for their regular monthly meeting on Friday, April 28th
at Firemen's Hall. Chas. M. LcHIond has agreed to deliver an address
on "Civic Development," which subject wiil afterwards be opened to
general discussion, Rev. C. K. Shields and otheis promising to speak on
the subject. J.W. Mason and II. F Kelsey will also make fifteen min
ute talks on the banana industry and the remedy for its development.

Honolulu, April 14. The Senate today overrode the Governor's veto
of County Hill by a vote of 1 1 to 3.
The following is the substance of the Governor's message vetoiuir the
County Act: b

Thereof," which I am unable to approve.
"The plan of county government presented is simple, and has many
excellent features. It is, however, incomplete in that it contains 110 pro

tion measure, which this bill shows to be contemplated, is not yet sub-
Thc approval of this bill, while not making it absolutely certain, yet
would obligate the Administration to accept 0 financial plan under which
its revenues would be beyond the control of its officials, its credit seri
ous y affected, and its finances involved to such an extent that the harm
could never be repaired.
"The plan of allowing each County Tax Assessor to assess property in
any manner he might sec fit has been tried by many communities, found
impracticable, and has resulted in the adoption of State or Territorial
Hoards of Lqualization, with centralized power and authority, under
which alone uniform assessments have been brought about.

The Governor made a few minor objections, some of which were that
no limitation was placed on the Supervisors regarding the amount of
salaries to be paid; a laxity regarding the qualifying of surety companies
on officers' bonds: tho nmvor nf .:,.-.,;,, . : 1. .1. ' . ..,.'..

other county officials; ambiguity regarding payment of election expenses;
no alternative on failure of a Supervisor to qualify; the Hoard of Super
visors also have power to pass laws contrary to Territorial laws.
The great difficulty," says the Governor, "is that the Territory will
be hampered, m that thej:ol!ection of Us whole revenue will be placed in
the hands of county officials, the surety on whose bonds may be worth
less, and who are beyond the control of the Territory. Our finances
endangered, our good faith and credit are injured. To defer to the

Daughters of Fame.
Ihe ladies of the First Foreign Church have under preparation what
promises to be one of the most unique and picturesque entertainments
ever witnessed in Hilo. The committees aud those taking part in the
various scenes and tableaux have been untiring in their efforts to make
the anair a success, and neither time nor expense have been spared to
make the entertainment thoroughly artistic. The idea of presenting the
Daughters of Fame" to a Ililo audience originated with Mrs. Levi C
Lyman, who on n former occasion on Maui successfully promoted a sim
ilar entertainment. But the present production will'be more elaborate
and contain features not contemplated in Mrs. Lyman's first intention,
for which she is indebted to other members of the committees
