ElGHTKKNTH DAY, MaHOU 12tH.
At the opening of tho Senate
this morning Senators Wilcox
nnd Schmidt wore tho absentees.
Sonnlor Lyman presented tho
credentials of Sonntor Moliiloin ns
Senator from Ilawaii.
On motion of Senator Brown
j tho certificates woro refoired to
liho Judiciary Committee.
j Minister Damon staled that tho
reason tho two months' salary was
' not paid to Dr. Kodgors as secre
tary of tho Lnbor Commission
was because tho Auditor-General
, refined to allow tho snmo owing
to a conllict in tho law.
A communication was recoived
from tho llousoofEepresontativcs
stating that tho bouato liul relat
ing to Homestead Leases had been
indefinitely postponed, also that
IIouso Bill No. 5 relating to tho
preservation of District Court re
cords had passed its final reading.
I Tho Miscellaneous Committee

j tho appropriation bill relating to
tho expenses of tho electric light
plant, reported as follows:
I "your Miscellaneous Commit-
too to which was referred tho item
of running expenses of tho Gov
ernment electric lights in tho ap
propriation bill, liavq not had
timo and have not thought it best
to take time to Bearch thoroughly
and systematically into tho mattor
as they would wish to do in viow
of its importance, on account of
tho delay it would causo to tho
passago of tho appropriation bill.
Any chango in tho presont systom
would bo n very important matter
and would tuko a considerable
amount of timo in committee for
gaining all information desired
and for discussion. Tho item in
question being tho only item in
tho appropriation bill under dis
cussion your coinmiltco has not
thought bust to mako any consid
"The matter has had earnest con
sideration and tho following fucts
aro taken from documents fur
nished by tho Minister of tho
Interior. Without burdening tho
members of tho Senate with nil
of tho details which have como to
our attontion, tho results
of tho investigation aro presented.
Tho proposed systom of light
ing tho streets und tho government
departments in tho various parts
of the city by tho Hawaiian Elec
tric Company would cost consid
erably over 200.00 por mouth
moro than tho presont systom and
would tuko tho water power in
J.11111U11U vawoy ironi ino control
of tho government. Your com
niittco feels that whatever may bo
tho ndvnntni'cs claimed for tho 1
(iroposcd system, tho government
is not in a condition at presont to
increase tho appropriation.
"Thero is appended to this report
a copy of the communication just
received from tho superintendent
of Public Works, which states that
shouldtho govornmont in tho fu
ture wish to turn over to tho Ha
waiian Electrio Company tho sup-
)iy ot powor lor tho lnoaiuloscont

water puuor to ruriush a much
larger number of stroot lights,
which the superintendent of pub

"In view of tho necessity of

felt thnt it would not lie wicin to

"If tho Cfovornmont should
abandon tho incandescent light
system and apply tho wholo water
powor nvailublo to lighting tho
strcots, it will bo prncticublo to
run 200 arc lights or about double
tho prosont number.
"Even in case of a dry season,
the water which it is possiblo to
store during moonlight nights
would probably enable us to keep
up tho full number of lights dur
ing dark nights.
"To mako this chango it would
bo necessary to provide each do
purtmoiit with means to pay for
its own lights, and also to provide
tho cost of lamps, who and poles
for as many additional lights us
should bo decided 011 at tho rate
of S125 per light. Sovonty-fivo
additional lights would require an
appropriation of bty'lOO. Tho run
ning expenses would bo covered
by tlie proM-nt appropriations."
Tho Judiciary Committeo re
ported favorably on tho credentials
of Sonntor Holstein, and on mo
tion tho report was unanimously
Senators Lyman and Kauhano
wero nppointed a committeo to in
terview tho Chief Justice and re
quest him to attend for tho pur
poso of swearing' in tho new mem
ber. a Sonntor Brown from tho Judi
ciary Committee asked for further
timo to consider tho bills relating
to appeals in suits for damages on
tho condemnation of land for
street purposes. Granted.
Senator Lyman from tho Com
mitteo on Passed Bills roported
that tho bill relating to laundries
and wuBhhousos had been pre
sented to tho President for his ap
proval. Tho committeo appeared with
tho Chiof Justico and Senator
Holstein was sworn in according
Thoro boing no business ou tho
ordor of tho day, Senate Bill No.
11, relating to Chinese immigra
tion, was taken up on tho second
reading and referred to tho Com
mitteo on Commerce and Agricul
ture Senator Baldwin moved to tuko
up tho report of tho Miscellaneous
Committeo on tho olectrio light
mutter. So ordered.
Senator Baldwin thought tho
mattor deserved looking into. Ho
understood tho presont systom of
lighting tho streets was very faul
ty, particularly in the summer
I timo. Ho was in favor of any
I thing that would give good lights

that tho bettor plan would bo to

to rceoitidor tho item and tho
Senator Hocking then moved to
reduce tho item of S5100 for tho
salary of a gonoral appraiser to

1111 entirely new appropriation,
but ho was cnnhlwl to ntato cm
what appeared to Ji;m it rc'in! lo

man comes hero ho is to bo sent
to Jnpan to learn his trado. Ho
thought tho presont incumbent
did very well and should bo sup
ported instead of putting a speci
alist over him.
Senator Brown moved to striko
out tho entire item. Tho import
ation of a new man would not
pay. What was wanted hero wns
a man who was fnmilinr with tho
local trade and not n specialist
ill any particular class of
goods. A specialist might
might bo an expert on silk but
no good for anything elso. Ho
was not personally acquainted
with tho piesont incumbent, but
from what ho had heard ho was
hotter qualified than a stranger
could possibly be. It wns a now
expeimo of 5100 that could bo got
along without Tho ollico so far

lie was satisfied to lot well enough
Senator Hocking accepted tho
amendment proposed by Senator
Minister Dninon said tho crea
tion of the new ollico was in tho
lino of tho go nho.id policy Adopt
ed by tho Government in tho
Custom Hon e, which produced
ono-third of tho total rovouuo of
the country. Every innovation in
this department boomed to meet
with opposition from merchants
and now thoro was opposition in
the Senate. Tho business of tho
Custom Houso must be pushed for
ward, not retrograded or allowed to
stand still, which was tho snmo
thing. Thoro must bo a good
man at tho head of tho appraiser's
department, and ho must bo

Thero wore ninny good mor

who woro not us good ns they
ought to bo. Theso lnttor must bo
met at lho appraisor's desk. Tho
rovonues must bo increased and it
was proposed to increase thorn by
increased eflicionoy in tho ap

but tho consumer.

Bop. llobertson presented a

Hep. Knmauoha did not soo

Bep. Haluulaui had moved and

Jep. Kamauoha replied that

I Bop. Bichurds thought this a
