A. B. Loebenstein, member from the Island of Hawaii of the Hawaiian
committee sent to Washington in the interests of the Refund bill, has re
turned. Mr. Locbenstein asked to be excused from making a statement in de
tail of work accomplished, previous to making his report to the Hilo
Chamber of Commerce and Board of Trade, the bodies whose emissary
he was. f
He stated, however, that the work done by the committee in Wash
ington was highly successful and satisfactory and would result in vast
good to the islands, an amelioration of conditions prevailing here, and a
hastening of the day of great prosperity for this country.
The fact that the, bill itself was unanimously reported on favorably iu
the face of so much criticism at first-by members of the committee, Mr.
Loebenstein considers cause for truch congratulation. The result of the
committee's work on this measure was that the justice of the claim for
the refund was unanimously admitted. The status of the islands in
reference to the important questions affecting them, was the subject of
serious and earnest consideration by members of congress and the heads
of various bureaus, aud information was furnished that will result in a
betterment of conditions, and that shortly.
Mr. Loebenstein was the last member of the committee to leave
Washington and his time was actively employed after the completion of
the discussion of the bill before the 'committee, in meeting in a semi
social way the heads of departments and the President relative to the
questions of labort land policy anj forestry, and there is assurance that
as a result reforms will be inaugurated along these lines in the near
future. The policy upon the question of labor is to be a liberal one car
ried out regardless of clique, faction or party, aud is to look toward the
Americanization of the Islands. He considers that all interested in and
identified with our great industries should be much encouraged in view
of such remedial action.
Mr. Loebenstein states that his proposition that Kilauea be made a
national park is looked upon very seriously by leading members of
congress and that a bill is to be introduced into the House in the near
future havinc for its nurnose thus settinc aside the volcano.
As to the prospects of the Refund pill becoming law, the fact of its
unanimous endorsement by the committee to which it was referred,
gives it a prestige that practically will insure its passage.
The delegate from Hawaii, Prince Kuhio Kalaniauaole, also came iu
for considerable praise from Mr- Loebenstein, who says: "very much of
the success of the delegation and th.i courtesies and consideration shown
it during its presence in Washington have been at the instance of the
delegate himself and his assistant, Mr. McLellan."

To Correct Compass.
S. A. Deel, engineer in charge of the U. S. geodetic survey station at
Honolulu, has been in Hilo for a few days, coming down the coast from
Kohala. He was at work Thursday at the trig, station on Cocoauut
island with a solar compass getting the latitude of the station and the
true north for the purpose of obtaining the present variation of the mag
netic needle at this station. This dbservatiou is made once every two or
three years. The variation of the needle here is about eight .degrees
east of north aud the magnetic pole has moved eastward about one de
cree and thirty-five minutes in fifty years or more. The variation of
the needle differs widely at different points on the island, due to local
attraction, aud is greatest on Mauna Kea where evidently a large quan
tity of magnetic iron has been brought to the surface by volcanic erup
tion. All surveying on the island is done from the trig, stations, of
which there are a great number. A transit instrument is used from
these absolute bases, and the work is therefore most accurate. Early
surveys were made by the needle compass and some serious errors have
occurred in boundaries of tracts as a result.
