Mr. diaries Stephenson, n well-known
Hallway Employo at Kulapol, Now

"About ten years ago, while en
gaged in shunting, my foot caught
between the rails, and my leg was
fractured below tho knee. It healed
in timo, but I have been troubled
ever slnco with swollen veins, and
have been obliged, at times, to wear
a bandage. About a year ago it be.
camo much worse, and I feared I
should bo obliged to give up my
, work. A friend advised mo to try
r Ayer's Sarsnparilla. I did so, and
after taking four bottles tho swell
ing disappeared, and I have not
been troubled with it since."

Senatoks and Repkesextativeb:
Since lho ndjournmont of tho
special session of tho Legislature
our relations with other govern
ments have continued to bo of a
During this period tho District
of Honolulu experienced an epi
demic of cholera violent and fatal
in character; but which through
tho prompt and intelligent action
of tho Board of Health and tho
voluntary and onergotic assistance
rendored by citizons of all classes
irrespective of political sentimonts,
was confined to Honolulu nnd
finally suppressed. Although tho
epidemic lasted but n fow weeks it
caused tho Government a largo
expenditure of money for which
special appropriations wore made
by the Council of State. It was
also Hie source of serious inter
ruption to business in Honolulu
and general inconvenience through
tho Islands to trado on account of

alarm and uncertainty that was

Tho lessons taught tho commu
nity by this experience are point
ed as regard tho necessity of san
itary measures and regulations
that Bhall make impossible tho re
currence of cholera or tho prova
lonco of other dangerous epi
demics. Tho Govornmont has
collected information from abroad
bearing on this subject, and im
proved its machinory for destroy
ing disease germs that may bo
brought hero from other countries.
"With the exception of tho inva
sion of cholera tho state of public
health has beon as usual.
Tho last year's expenses wore, in
spito of tho largo outlay on ac
count of tho insurrection of Jonu
ry and tho cholera epidemic, kept
within curront funds, though not
within tho actual current lovonuo
for tho year; this was accomplished
by means of the largo surplus
balance carried over from tho
Although it is tho policy of tho
Government to study economy in
tho oxpondituro of public funds,
an increased appropriation for tho
coming period is deemed noces
sary; partly on account of tho
rapidly increasing number of
school children requiring addi
tional outlay for school buildings
and toachors, partly for tho sake
of increased efficiency of tho civil
service in some Departments and

al and commercial development.
A part also of this increased ap
propriation will bo required for
carrying out tho land policy of
tho Government under tho land
act passed by tho Legislature at
its last Bcssion.
While it is recommended that
cortain public improvements bo
provided for by loan, it is expect
ed that tho balance of tho proposed
increaso ot expenditure will como
from tho natural growth of revenue
from duties and taxes, and from
tho action of special rovonuo laws
recommended by tho Minibtor oE
Finance, providing for nn in
creased tnrill on cortain imports,
for tho consolidation of statutes
rotating to public licenses, and for
a readjustment of tho period of
tax assessment. It is hoped that
from theso sources tho rovonuo
may bo reasonably increased
without a necessity for tho in
creaso of direct taxation.
Tho subject of public improve
ments doinands careful study, for
while borrowing to an extreme
degree for such purposes would
tend to cripple tho future ad
ministration of affairs, tho neglect
to make certain improvements for
fear of debt would delay tho mate
rial and social progress wo need
and hope for.
Tho Island of Hawaii with groat
natural resources yet with a small
population in proportion to its
area, rugged with lava fiows and
cut up with numerous and pro
cipitous gulches, roquires a largo
outlay for good roads. Road con-
struction on this island from theso
natural conditions is mora ex
pensive than on tho other islands
and tho length of necessary roads
is greater, lint tho work ought to bo
done and dono woll and quickly,
as it is an essential factor in tho
development of our largest island
to a uegreo that will materially
and beneficially affect tho desti
nies of all tho Hawaiian Islands.
Our increasing commerce calls
for largor wharf facilities in tho
harbors of Honolulu and Hilo.
This need is specially imporativo
at tho port of Honolulu. Tho ex
tension of tho basin of this har
bor is desirablo for tho shipping

Tho prosperity of tho Koolau

Upon those grounds I recom
mond adequate appropriations
for now roads on Hawaii, for tho
Nuuanu Pali road on Oahu, for
Honolulu wharf and harbor ex
tension, and for a wharf at Hilo,
and that tho funds therefor shall
bo raised by loan.
Tho many instances in which
streets in Honolulu and Hilo re
quire extending or widening, has
led tho Executive Council to con
