San Francisco on the Water Wagon.
Athens, Greece, May 1. The Americans already have won the great
est number of events in the Olympic games. The Greeks are second,
with the Swedes third and the English fourth. The superiority of the
individual American competitors is .acknowledged by all, but the de
feated athletes are endeavoring to find seme solace iu the fact that thti
Americans had many strings to their bow, and held a superiority in
numbers in nearly all events.

was first, with 1 meter 77 4 centimeters, 69.88 inches; Goency, Hun

Treasurer, Territory of Hawaii.
Honolulu, May 10, 1906.
While twisted iron girders are yet glowing, bricks smoking and char
red merchandise smoldering, plans are being formulated for the rebuild
ing of San Francisco on the site selected by the fathers, says the
Chronicle a San Francisco that shall make the fathers proud of the in
herited pluck and determination of their sons, and excite the wonder
and admiration of the world. The ashelaiid ruins of the city that has
passed will give place to great office add business buildings that will
soon 'arise, and among the stone-bound ,and iron-girdled sky-scrapers
will be oases of green parks, playgrounds and gardens.
The engineering department of the city will accomplish this, and City
Engineer Thomas P. Woodward is already working his plans into
shape. Streets will be changed, driviug thoroughfares widened and
beautified, and orooertv will be condemned wherever and whenever
such process will w6rk to the general good of the community. In doing
this private interests will not be sacrificed; neither will personal hold
ings be confiscated, but everything taken by the municipality for its
regeneration will be regularly paid for.
"This is our opportunity," said Woodward. "It is for us to now
make the city that we have dreamed of ili'the past as it should be. As
great sections are to be rebuilt I think that all public-spirited citizens
will agree that they should be rebuilt along the lines of art."
One of Wocdward's plans is the widening and parking of Van Ness
avenue its entire length east to Polk street. This, according to Wood
ward, would give the city one of the finest boulevards iu the world and
be an effectual fire protection.

Rush to Pay Taxes.
Honolulu, May 15. By this evening Tax Assessor Holt expects to
have $300,000 cash paid in in taxes, over half of it in payments made
today. It is the last day before delinquency and the big taxpayers are
coming in with their coin. The office will be kept open till late this
"We have about $140,000 now," said Holt this morning, "and by the
time we quit tonight I expect the total will be $300,006, since the first
of the year. As the payments are half payments fpr the year it is hard
to make comparisons with other years, but I can say that the payments
are up to expectations."
The rush at the tax office continued all today, with all the extra win
dows very busy. The office was open till after ten last night and will
be again tonight.
Kauai Lands For Moiokans.
Honolulu. May 16. Fred. Harvey, of the survey departmeut, is en
gaged in drawing plats for the lands that it is proposed to give to the
Molokans ou Kapaa in severalty. Each family i3 to be given about
forty acres, ten iu cane below the ditch, and fifteen acres suitable for
cane planting and fifteen acres of pasture above the ditch. The cane
land not planted is covered with lantana and must be cleared. The
maps will be ready probably by next Tuesday, when Harvey will return
to Kapaa. .
Waldamar Young, in the Chronicle, humorously describes the situa
tion in the big city, become suddenly and terribly dry through suppres
sion of the drinking saloons, as follows:
I'm on the water wagon now;
I never get a jag on now.
This wa's Frank Daniels' song iu "The Office Boy." He ought to
come to San Francisco and sing it now. A chorus of thousands of male
voices, clearer now. thaa they have been for years, would join him iu
the refrain. Perhaps a few of the males carrying voices would break
down in the midst of the pathetic ballad and would be unable to pro
ceed. Everybody could have a good cry and the show would be a huge
For this is a prohibition town for fair. Not only is the thirst-beset'
populace on the water wagon, but there isn't much water in the wagon,
and what there is has to be boiled. Never before in the history of the
city have so many clear-eyed men been seen on the streets. Never,
also, it should be written, have tongues hung out so far. They are
hanging out farther every day. It is like a journey across the Sahara,
where the camel is the only one that has any fun.
It's great ,to be a camel.
Oh, give us a drink, bartender,
For we love you, as you know '
To how many men is that the anthem of the hour? You can't count
'cm, son. It isn't as if this had been a prohibition town always, like
certain benighted places throughout our fair laud. It all descended so
suddenly. No one was prepared. No one had a chance to taper off.
Soldiers with bayonets suddenly stepped in, and the poor man who
had been accustomed to his dram iu the morning and his nip before
lunch hadn't a chance. It was like putting Jack Muuro up against
Jim Jeffries, and everybody knows how that affair ended.
A man has to do something, so he might as well write poetry. Put
your car to the ground and get this one:
I haven't any money,
And my credit, too, is gone;
I didn't save the tickets ' ,,
For the things I had in pawn. ' . ' -
I didn't mind the earthquake, ,.
Though it shook me out of bed, ' ' ,
And I didn't cuss the fire, . ( ? ,
Though it made me beg for bread. "
But I called myself a Spartan,
And prepared to face the worst ' v
Till I found myself afflicted
With a cultivated thirst. '
Then the awful conflagration , '
And the horror of the crash i ' '
Made an idol of the beer check
-- .- That I had and couldn't cash-..
That isn't" so bad after you think it over. The sentiment, the An
guished cry, held it a lot.
Not only the customers, but also the proprietors, feel the unaccustom
ed lack of moisture. "Jim" Dunne, who used to have saloons to burn
and they burned was discovered eating a cornucopia of ice cream the
other day, right out iu the open. Others have been known to do the
same thing. A man mentioned saloons to "Jim," and he shied. He
was williug to discuss anything else.
Affairs here are getting to a point where it isn't safe for a man to have
anything in his hip pocket that bulges out. All his friends suspect) that
it might be a bottle, and they follow him for blocks, If they can get
him near a dark alley, it's all off with him.
As a matter of cold news, the saloons are likely to remain closed for
three months or more.

No Limit Placed on Height.
Oakland, Cal., May 15. The Reconstruction Committee bf San Fran
cisco has reported favorably to placing no limit on the height of buildings
located on the wide streets of the city. This decision is the result of an
inspection of the sky-scrapers of the city, and is indicative of the small
amount of damage done these buildings during the earthquake.

Honolulu, May 15.- Acting Governor Atkinson yesterday afternoon
signed reprieves for the five Korean murderers who are under death
sentence. They were to have been hanged tomorrow, but the reprieves
give them another week of life, during which the Social Science Club's
committee will examine the transcript of testimony iu the case and make
its report. It is understood that the committee will advise commutation
of some of the sentences at least.
Citizenship For Porto Ricans.
Washington, May 16. The House Committee on Insular Affairs has
favorably reported the bill granting citizenship to Porto Ricans.
This is a step in the direction of giving a full fledged Territorial form
of government to the island. Under the system established by Congress
by the act of 1909, there are two legislative chambers, the House of
Delegates, consisting of 35 members elected by the people, and an
Executive Council, or "upper house," composed of the Government
Secretary, Attorney-General, Treasurer, Auditor, Commissioner of the
Interior, Commissioner of Education and five citizens appointed by the
President. Porto Rico has the disposition of its own customs and inter
nal revenue taxes, and is put to no charge for national defense. It does,
however, pay the expenses of maintaining a Federal court.

Marshall Field & Co., the great dry goods firm of Chicago, are locat

sentatives of this great house were sent to San Francisco while the fire
was raging to make the necessary arrangements for the establishment
of a branch house there.
Marshall Field & Company will locate temporary quarters on Fillmore
street in the vicinity of Ellis and Eddy streets. This recognition on the
part of the Eastern house of the great future of San Francisco has n most
stimulating effect on both retailers and real estate agents.
