TiUJ refutnl bill hns passed tbc
senate, that body not having waited
to receive it from the house. This
looks well for the bill and removes
it from the danger that it might be
crowded out of consideration by the
upper branch of congress in the
rush of the closing days of the ses
sion, now approaching. The bill
passed is understood to be identical
with the one reported on favorably
by the committee of the House to
which it had been referred. Mean
while the powerful influence of the
administration is being exerted in
the House in behalf of the bill
nml the chances for it becoming a
law look bricht indeed. With this
bill passed Hawaii will be placed
upon the high road to prosperity,
upon which it is to be hoped it will
progress with good speed. Being
so full of promise of the success of
this measure most important for
Hawaii, the news is the 'most wel
come that has been received by the
Islands for many a day.
Candidates for the legislature,
regardless of party, in this and the
. other counties, should be pledged
to work for county government.
Our so-called county government
is but a poor counterfeit of the gen
uine article, for, it is in reality ter
ritorial. County boards of super
visors we have to be sure, but en
dowed with no authority legisla
tive, executive or judicial. Their
duties and responsibilities are re
stricted to the care of the roads, ex
isting, or that the territory may
establish work suggestive of the
prisou gang and to paying bills
contracted for the county's benefit
by the territory. County governr
ment has proven itself a success so
far as its limited character would
allow, and demonstrated that all
that is lacking to its complete suc
cess is that it be put into full effect.
To President Roosevelt is
due the sincere gratitude of the
people of the Islands for the suc
cess of the efforts in the cause of
justice toward the Islands embodied
in the refund bill. Without the
active aid ol the administration,
events have made it evident the
measure would have had little show
of even a hearing. Should the bill
fail in the House, as it will not, the
meed of praise and thanks of the
people of the Hawaiian Islands will
be none the less due to the Presi
dent, in this case, as ever, the
champion of the cause of justice.
Offer Not Honored.
The county clerks' office has received
a communication from Acting Governor
Atkinson enclosing a letter addressed to
him from the superintendent of Public
Works in reference to an exchange of
land with Mrs. Joe Vierra for property to
be taken in the widening of Itndge street.
The superintendent says: "I vould say
that it is impossible for me to make any
arrangements whereby a land exchange
could be effected between the govern
ment and Mrs. J. Vierra in as much as
(?) payment of Mrs. Vierra's claims. As
she has refused -to accept settlement 011
this basis, it docs uot seem to me that
any further action can be taken except
by the legislature."
Hurried In Manila.
Miss Margaret Tutt of San Francisco,

Filing Fish St.ry.
A school of flying fish attacked
the steamer Claudiue last Monday
morning in the Hawaiian channel.
The vessel was crossing in the early
morning. She was throwing her
search-light. The light evidently
attracted and scared the fish, for
suddenly a swarm of them rose out
of the water and flew over the bow
of the vessel.
It seemed as if a silver cloud was
rising from the sea. One very large
fish measuring twelve inches in
length flew squarely against the
search-light, broke the glass, and
put the machine out of commission.
Japanese carpenters and painters
are being approached by white
promoters with a view to engaging.
them to go to San Francisco. The
promoters tell the Japanese, that
they can earn from $10 $15 per
day during the, rebuilding of San
Francisco. Mauy of the Japanese
have stated their willingness to go.
Others believe that the bait is too
large and that the figures will
shrink when it comes to handing,
out the coin. Then there are the
labor unions to consider. Adver
Second Turn to the Loft.
While Robert Louis Stevenson
the novelist was paying his last
visit to his native laud a friend,
whose recollection of geography
was rather shaky, asked, "Where
the deuce is Samoa, Stevenson?"
"It's the second turn to the left
after you leave San Francisco,"
said Robert Louis, whose memory
of maps only ran to recollection
that in going to Samoa from the
Pacific coast one always stopped
first at Honolulu.
