against bad food. According to one version, this sailor, whose name
was Omiltchuk, objected to the quality of the "borchtch" or soup, and
was immediately shot down by a mess officer. The crew then rose and
siezed the ship and the officers, eightf hem were spared on condition
tuat tuey would join tue mutineers. The others were killed and thrown
overboard. The Potemkin arrived at Odessa, accompanied by two torpedo
boats, the body of the dead sailor was taken ashore and lay in state, be
ing visited all day by thousands. A riot followed when the Odessa
police interfered, the rioters setting fire to the docks and water front.

ine texr. 01 tue opinion jno. 100 in lull, is as follows:
Honolulu, June 28, 1905.
Hon. James W. Pratt, Commissioner of Pubik Lauds:
Dear Sir In answer to your request for an opinion as to the interpre
tation of Sections 61, 62 and 64 of the Land Act, where a tenant has
not complied with the terms of subdivision 2 of Section 61 as to resi
dence, but has later taken up his home upon the premises and lived
there continuously, I would reply as follows:
We call your attention to opinions Nos. 152 and 155 of this office for
the year 1904, giving in general the law applicable to these subjects.
Upon further consideration of the sections of the Land Act referred to
above, I have come to the conclusion that Section 64 provided for a dif
ferent class of cases from those set forth in Sections 61 and 62.
Section 61 is mandatory. It provides certain conditions which must
be substantially fulfilled. Especially relating to rental in advance,
maintenance of a home, cultivation of twenty-five acres, and tion-assign-ment
Section 62 provides that the violation of any of the conditions shall be
sufficient cause for the Laud Commissioner, with the approval of the
Governor, to take possession of the premises. The section gives him au
option whether or not to declare a forfeiture. If he docs not declare
such forfeiture and the tenant fulfills the provisions of Section 64, towit,
"reduces to cultivation twenty-five per cent, of said premises, and resides
for two years thereon," and substantially performs all the other condi
tions of Section 62, the Commissioner, not having declared a forfeiture
in the meantime, is estopped, and the tenant is entitled to his land title.
Nothing, however, iu this opinion should be construed as interfering
with the absolute right of the Land Commissioner, with the approval of
the Governor, at any time after the breach of any condition contained in
a lease or grant, and set forth in Section 61, to declare a forfeiture up to
the time when the conditions in Section 64 have been absolutely fulfilled.
I have the honor to be, yours respectfully,
(Signed) LORRIN ANDREWS, Attorney-General.

The Finance Committee of the Board of Supervisors, consisting of
Supervisors 0. T. Shipman, D. K. Makuakanc and S. L. Desha, have
submitted an estimate of receipts and expenditures for the six months
ending December 31, 1905, which is as follows:
The records of the Tax Office for the Island of Hawaii (now compris
ig the County of Hawaii) for the like period from July 1 to Decembei
31, 1904, show as follows
South Hilo- $101,587.9.1

Net taxes to be divided $260,798.93
Fifty percent, to Hawaii County 130,309.46
Total amount to be paid to Hnwoii County between July 1, 1905,
and December 31, 1905 70,309.46
Payments to be made to the County of Hawaii at the end of each
month, being ten per cent, of $70,309.46, or $7,039.94, total
to December 31, 1905 ;..; 42,239.44
Balance to be settled between January 1 and 15, 1906 28,160.02
Your committee further finds that the monthly salaries of the several
officers of the county, as fixed by statute, are as follows:

Monthly balance nt the disposal of the County for nil other pur-
In view of the fact that after paying salaries and polico su h a small
balance remains for all other purposes, your committee recommends that
all public expenditures be confined to the smallest limit absolutely neces
sary to continue the public service efficiently; that no Road Supervisors
be appointed until such time as sufficient funds shall have accumulated
to justify such appointments; that in the mean time the County Super
visor for each district shall care for such property as may be turned over
by the former Road Board or Road Supervisor in his district; that each
member of the County Board be authorized to make any repairs on roads
m his district that may be absolutely necessary to keep them in passable
condition; that each member ascertain whether or not ther,e are any un
expended balances of road funds remaining in the hands of former road
officers in his district, and at each regular meeting of the County Board
make a report in writing of all such transactions in his district, and in
cluding such further information concerning his district as may be deemed
by him useful for the Board of Supervisors.
Your committee deemed it advisable to ascertain the rate of discount
aud other conditions, if any, required by the bank for cashing Territorial
warrants, and addressed a communication to the bank requesting such
information, and received the following reply:
ir m m . . IIil0' Hawaii, July 7, 1905.
Mr. O. 1 . Shipman, Chairman Finance Committee, Board of Super
visors, County of Hawaii:
Dear Sir In reply to your request regardine the furnishing of funds
to the county by discounting the warrants received from the Treasurer
of the Territory. This bank will discount the warrants on the same
basis as the Honolulu banks will do for the County of Oaliu. We have
written to Honolulu to find out the plan of the banks there and will
report to you later. Yours truly, C. A. STOBIE, Cashier.
Your committee finds it difficult to obtain any fuither exact data at
the present time.
