After tho usual opening pro
ceedings in tho Sennlo this morn
ing, Minister King announced
that tho President had signed tho
bill rolnting to tho powors and
duties of tho Minister of Foreign
Affairs in relation to tho military,
the hill concerning tho width of
Ililo streets, and tho joint resolu
tion defining tho duties of tho Au-ditor-Genoral
in tho matter of tho
expenses of the Legislature
A communication was received
from tho Houso of Representatives
asking for a conforonco committee
on tho Groat Seal.
Senator Wntorhouso from tho
Finnnco Committoo asked that tho
potition of H. Hackfold fc Co. and
tho Kahuku plantation bo roforred
to a special committee, as all the
membprs of tho Finnnco commit
tee woro indirectly interested in
tho affair. On motion tho rctiuost
Senator Schmidt presented n
bill from tho Department of Pub
lic Works for S110.85 for tho fonco
around tho Sonnto chamber, otc.
Tho same sonator then nsked
for an expression of tho Sonnto as
to tho right of tho Committoo ou
Accounts to allow bills for print

The Attornoy Gonoral said that
it has been the custom to do so iu
Senator McCandless said tho
printing of 'reports should pro
perly come out of department in
cidental expenses for which ap
propriations woro already inudo.
It was an old scheme to put this
oxponso on tho legislature so as to
uso tho department funds for other
President "Wilder said it didn't
mnko much difference, tho pcoplo
had to pay tho bills some time.
Sonator McCandless said it
made this difference, that it piled
up tho total expenses of tho Le
gislature and laid it open to being
accusod of extravagance. Ho
thought the departments should
pay thoir own bills. If thoLegisla
turepaid for printingroports it was
very certain that tho presont ap
propriation would bo insufficient.
Sonator Hocking nsked why tho
Legislature was asked to pay for
printing 500 copies of theso ro
ports when 50 would bo all that
Tho Attornoy-Goneral explained
that after tho first fifty copies tho
oxponse of additional ones was

thorized to net on tho ndvico of

Houso bill No. 7, known as tho
Registration, bill was takon up on
tho third reading and pasbed by u
yoto of 11 to 1, Senator Uico vot
ing in tho negntivo.
A communication was received
from tho House, stating thnt tho
Keroeno Oil bill nnd Sonnto bill

nnd enclosing certified copies
On motion of Sonntor Brown,
Sonato Bill No. 17 with the amend

Sfiitt- 13111 No. 25, t oxtonding
the lire limits of tho city of Ho

erected thoroin, camo up ou tho
Section 1, defining tho limits of
the proposed cxtptiRiou. was read
and a map intrnduppa showing
tho old and pi'0ki4u.i limits.
Sonator lliown m i.-pd that tho
spction be indofiiw'.uU postponed,
lie opposi-d tho pn-nli u of now
fire limits iu tho old fishmarkot
district on tho ground that tho
property thoro was composed of a
number of small holdings owned
mostly by Hawaiians, who would
bo positively unnblo to orect fire
Senator Watorhouse seconded
the motion to ludofinitoly post
pone, saying that tho timo had
not como for oxtonding tho fire
limits. Ho was willing to voto
for a bill which would stop tho
oroctiou of tho presont unsightly
corrugated iron buildings now
Senator McCandless said ho had
a map showing tho ownership of
ovory pieco of land in tho propos
ed oxtousion in tho fishmarkot dis
trict, which showed that John F.
Colburn paid taxeH on fully ouo
third of tho buildings thoreon.
Ho argued at length nnd earnest
ly in favor of tho section, saying
tho govornment intended to im
prove tho harbor in that vicinity
and that it was not desirablo to
liavo wooden buildings erected in
tho immediate neighborhood of
now wharves and shipping. In
any ovout tho limits should bo
extended along both sides of King
street to tho bridge. Tho build
ings on this street woro all for
business purposes and command
ed good rentals. Ho called atten
tion to tho potition which had
bpen prcsontcd on this matter and
said it was tho strongest over pre
sented to tho .Legislature
Tho Attornoy-Goneral was
strongly in favor of tho section.
Ho thought tho idon embodied in
tho section was correct. Tho
business of tho city was increas
ing and tho business nroa had to
increaso with it. It wns tho inton
tion of tho govornment to build
extensive docks for Bteamships of
tho largest class adjoining the
Pacific Mail wharf and to ouild
other docks for sailing vessols in
tho area formerly occupied by tho
old fishmnrkot. These costly im
provements should bo protected
nnd ho thought tho bill was on'
tho lines of improvement nnd pro
Sonator McCandless read tho
petition of merchants.
JVImistor Damon Bam lie was
gradually getting it bcaton into
his head that it wns no uso tr3'ing
to got too much at once. Ho had
lately had discouragement thrown
at him by the cartload on many of
his projects, and horoaftor ho pro
posed to aim for a little at a time
nnd stick to that littlo until ho got
it. Ho thought if tho Legislature
could pass bectiou 2 which pro
hibited corrugated iron buildings
fronting on the streets it was all
that could bo hoped for in tho
prosont session. Two years from
now tho Legislature might bo
willing to extend tho firo limits a
littlo, say a block all round.
Tho question wns than put to a
voto anil four Senators voted for
and ngainst tho motion. On a
rising voto eight favored it and
section 1 was Btriokon out.
Section 2 which absolutely pro
hibits the construction of corrug
ated iron buildings fronting on
streets within tho presont firo
limits mid creates a commission
to grant permits and ovorseo tho
erection of all buildings thorcin,
consisting of tho Minister of In
terior, Superintendent of Public
Works, Chief Engineer of tho
Firo Dopartmont and two persons
to bo appointed bv tho President,
then passed without opposition,
as did tho remaiuing section.
At 11:30 tho Sonnto adjourned.

has sought safoty in Buluwayo.
He brought with him, however,
three Inuuuns, whom ho arrested

Tho opinion is oxprcssod at Bu
