There is a provision in the bill that this appropriation of thirty thou
sand dollars for the legislature shall be available only on condition that
the members of the legislative body shall forego their two hundred dol
lars apiece for the extra session. Besides saving the thirty thousand to
be this additional savintr of two
hundred dollars for each of the forty-five members of the Senate and
House, making nine thousand dollars more for each biennial period.
And there will be the inducement to the members to expedite business,
finishing it all up at one session and getting back to their regular em
ployments. So the passage of this bill by Congress will work for good
all around. And of course it will receive the signature of the President.

Canal Legislation Delayed.
Washington, March 29. It is not regarded as probable that there
will be any canal legislation at this session of Congress. Tlie Senate
committee is divided as to the type of canal that it would be best to
The struggle is understood to be between the advocates of a sea level '
and a lock canal, the President favoring a waterway with locks. But
the President, as a matter of fact, has nt different times fa vnrwl hntli
types, and all the engineers do not go with him in favoring the lock
construction. The whole Panama canal business at the present session
has been pretty badly muddled, indeed, and the Secretary of War, tlie
administration and tlie canal officials have at different times been on the
Cougressional grill on matters of salaries, favoritism and scandals con
nected with the management of affairs 011 the isthmus.
The last mainland papers had the following.
Washington, March 20. John F. Wal!a .''formerly chief engineer of
the Isthmian Canal Commission, today testified before the Senate com
mittee concerning the type of canal to be constructed ncross the isthmus
of Panama. He was asked to state his v'ews and prefaced his examina
tion with a general statement, which, in part, follows:
Wallace, in advocating an approxin.ate straight sea level canal, of
ample width and depth, as the best ype, urged that any other plan
which places restrictions upon the probable permanency of the canal
itself, as well as upon the speed and the size and number of vessels pas
sing through it, must render the canal far less valuable; that the deter
rent factors in this connection are relative time and cost, and that 'in
approaching the discussion the question of how much money the Ameri
can people supposedly are willing to invest in the canal, and how much
time they are willing to wait for its proper accomplishment should be'

Honolulu, March 29. Superintendent Babbitt returned yesterday
from Kauai after making arrangements for some new schools on that
island, among them being a school at Kapaa, at which the children of
the Molokan colony will attend. Babbitt visited many places on the
island and looked into school affairs generally, with the result that in
addition to the new school enterprises, there will be some improvements
ot old scnoois.
"We proposs to build an eight or ten-room school at Kapaa," said
the Superintendent. "This will not be specially for the Molokans. but
it will be the school they will attend. There is no need to build a school
specially for them, nt present, for there are only 16 school children
among them now."
A new two-room school at Koolau was also decided upon, also im
provements at Hanalei, Lihue, Hanamaulu, Makaweli and Kalaheo At
Lihue a new room is to be opened and Miss Mabel Wilcox has been ap
pointed teacuer. star.
Good Chance of Getting Rebate.
Honolulu, March 28. Most of the members of Hawaii's Rebate Com
mission returned this morning by the S. S. Korea. In the party were
George W. Smith, Mark P; Robinson, J. R. Gait and E. A. Mclnerny.'
"The prospects for congress taking favorable action looking toward
granting us the 75 per cent, rebute on the Federal income are favor
able," said George W. Smith, the chairman of the commission. "We
had expected to hear some news on our arrival this morning that there
had been some favorable progress. I was not surprised therefore to
learn that the committee had agreed unanimously to recommend the
measure favorably to the House.
"I consider," said Mark P. Robinson, "that our mission was a suc
cess. The indications were very favorable indeed, for favorable action
ou our measure. I believe that congress will grant us the rebate meas
ure, but under compromise conditions. The compromise will not be in
the amount but in the period of time. Originally the request was for
twenty years, but the indications are that the time when the rebate will
be effective will be cut to five years. In fact some of the members of
congress remarked when we urged the twenty-year period that it would
be no use granting the rebate for that period, for we would probably be
a state before the expiration of such period."

The Crockett Refinery. ,
San Francisco, March 20. With permanent contracts signed up that
leave Claus Spreckels less than 50,000 Ions out of the annual output of
425,000 tons from Hawaii, the independent sugar men who have organ
ized the Sugar Factors Company in Honolulu and operate the Crockett
refinery here, under the name of the California and Hawaiian Sugar
Refining Company, boast that they have the fight won and are putting
out their product on a permanent basis.
"I have heard rumors that there is a secret pact between us and the
Spreckels people," said Manager George Rolph, of the latter company,
today, "but have paid no attention to them for the reason that they are
absurd on the face of them to any one familiar with the situation. We
are absolutely an independent concern, and the names on our directorate
are sufficient guarantee to the public that we are here to stay.
"Why should we offer any compromise to anybody, when we control
over 82 per cent, of the output of the islands? We have not thought it
necessary, to show our independence, to start in to butcher prices and
demoralize the industry.
"That would be the method if we were some mushroom concern
started Up over night to cinch the trust into buying us out. But that is
not our object. We would not have organized if we had not believed
this is to lie a great world metropolis. Ws are making 340 tons of sugar
a day at Crocket', and by the first of next month will have the largest
output of any refinery on the coast. There is not much reason there
for .secret compacts. We are in control of the situation, and are and
will remain independent of Spreckels and everybody else."
