Minister Damon said tho matter
was under consideration of tho

thorn was tho expediency of taking
so much powder awny from the
sent of government whoro it was
under direct control. It could
easily be removed to Diamond

road, but nt tho present titno
tho government was doubtful
of tho expediency of removing it

Sonator Baldwin said ho would
agroo to tho liconso for Honolulu

Ho thought it should not apply to
