Mr. Charles Strphenson, a well-known
Hallway Employs at Kalnpol, Xcir
Zealand, write t
"About ten years ago, while en
gaged in shunting, my foot caught
totween the rails, and my leg was
fractured below the knee. It healed
in time, but I have been troubled
ever since with swollen veins, and
have been obliged, at times, to wear
a bandage. About a year ago it be
came much worse, and I feared I
should bo obliged to givo up my
work. A friend advised mo to try
Ayer's Sarsaparilla. I did so, and
nJCter taking four bottles the swell
ing disappeared, and I have not
been troubled with it since."

tho appropriation of April 1st,
1892, was $1,022.29 which has nil
been expended. Of tho appropri
ation of August 20, 1895, amount
ing to $3000 nothing has bcon ex

Honokaa lauding is n private
one. In 1882, $10,000 was appro
priated in aid of a landing at Ho
nokaa, which amount was expend
ed. This lauding was swept away
shortly afterwards, and since then
tho Honokaa Sugar Company
have built a lauding at Honokaa
and kept tho same in repair with
out any assistance from tho gov
ernment. Therefore this landing
dpes not coma under tho pro
visions of Section 4, Chapter
XLIV. of tho Session Laws of
1 1892, which regulates tho charges
at landings under certain condi
tions. Tho question as to whether tho
government intends opening up
the homestead lands back of tho
Awiui tracts in Kohala was sub
mitted to Land Agent Brown, who
Btntos that no applications or in
dications of a desiro for home
steads in that locality havo reach
ed his office but it is tho intention
of tho Land Commission to meet
as rapidly as possible any de
mands for homesteads wherever
existing. Thoro nro numerous
petitions on file for tho laying out
of homesteads in othor localities,
signed by numorous petitioners,
which would naturally have pre
ference, so ,tlmt it is not possiblo
to indicate when tho Kohala work
could bo undertaken.
Ilonoipu landing is a publia
lauding and is not owned
by the chairman of the
Kohala Road Board. Tho
amounts expended on tho two
roads sinco 1893 are: Honoipu

Ministor Damon made tho fol
lowing statement on tho financial
affairs of tho Republic:
I think it is well sometimes that
tho Minister of Finnnco should
como before tho Senate, as tho
property authority to whom tho
Constitution especially committed
thepresontationof finnncial matters
nud state tho position that theGov
eminent is in financially. Especial
ly nt this session wliou there are
ho many mnttors beforo it coining
from tho Treasury, for instance,
tlio Act which has been passed
granting tho Minister of Finnnco
facilities for carrying on tho Cur
rent Account; also tho Tax Bill,
tho Loan Bill and the Liqenso
Act. Thoro is so much thnt per
tains to tho Treasury in consider
ation of these various matters I
thought it might bo woll to givo
you a Bhort statement of our pres
ent position and lot you know
how tho Treasury stood this
Tho quostion of whothor tho
Republic is snfo in its financial
standing, I think, is past. Tho
crisis, you might say, connected
! with our monetnry affairs, has
gono by. Tho Ropublio has
proved its ability to moot its re
quirements. Tho pooplo havo
signified their willingnoss to bear
additional taxation that- tho public
interests may bo fostered and tho
public works carried on. As far
, as tho public works aro concerned
, I think wo can look ahoad with
assurance that wo liavo passed
through the critical period and
aro now on abettor footing. I
placo this assuranco on tho fact
that tho people themselves, sinco
tho Republic was established.havo
subscribed for our bonds in an
amount of nearly six hundred
thousand dollars. In addition to
that, tho Postal. Savings Bank,
from n position in which it was
struggling to meet its liabilities,
has grown until now it has in ad
dition to tho sum Of$50,000required
by law, a largo sniplus of $21,000.
Tho Loan Fund also has a surplus
to its credit of $14,000.
Tho point to which I refer now
specially is our Current Account.
Tho Gun out Account bIiows this
morning, cash on hand $109,000.
On the last day of this mouth wo
will havo to moot tho bills for
salaries and pay-rolls, which un
der tho presout appropriation bill
amounts to about $80,000. Undor
tho now appropriation bill it will
amount to nbout $88,000. Thoro
will bo interest duo on tho 1st of
April amounting to $2J,000. This
is interest on tho loan of 1893, in
stituted by tho lato Government
and npj -ed by this Government.
In teres 3 is duo on this loan on tho
1st Srt of April and October.
The interest on tho diiToront loans
is scattered through tho rest of
tho year, tho principal payments
of interest boing duo on tho 1st
day of January, April, July and
October. As 1 Baid tho interest
on tho first of next month will
amount to $24,000, which will
mako a total of $101,000, whioh
will leavo us a small margin.
Thoro nro a few days loft in this
month to swell that amount, but
wo havo enough to moot this
Iu tho early part of April I
propose to moot our January bills,
aud if tho situation in tho Treas
ury should not warrant it I pro
pose to draw from Bishop & Co.
undor tho Act for that purpose
tho sum of $15,000. Tho January
bills should bo paid in tho early
part of April. "Whilo I am speak
ing on tho subject, of using tho
Act that has granted tho privilego
to tho Treasury of securing funds
from outside sources temporarily,
I waut to say, that I havo noticed
in tho newspapers that possibly
tho Minister of Finance may ubo
his position as bankor and his
position as Minister of Finance
to mako them harmonious and
havo thom work together. I can

proaching of tho gospol nud faith

or work of conscientious ignorance.

tho Biblo you will fail. It is the
only thing that can sustain you in.

you if you como to that awful

that you havo oboyod implicitly
