Rep. Richards thought they
wore passing a bill that would
simply bo winked at by everybo

it read very well, out when itcamo

Rop. RycroEt was informed that
tho practice of belting on baseball
had spoiled tho gamo in Honolu
lu. Ho had himself seen money
openly wagered in the grand stand
before children, and suoh practi
ces had a bad effect besides threat
ening tho destruction of tho game.
This bill would not stop hotting
on garaos, but it certainly ought
to provont public gambling on
sports. Thoroforo ho would like
to seo tho bill go through.
Rop. Bond spoko in a similar
strain. Many peoplo who would
onjoy horso racing woro kept away
from it by tho provalont gambling
at tho track.
Rop. Rycroft, commenting ou
tho absonco of Mr. Robertson's
namo from tho report, said that
member would sign the ropoit
when ho had tho opportunity, as
ho had expressed himself in favor
of tho bill yesterday.
Rep. Richards withdraw his
formal opposition to tho bill, but
still maintained that the law would

The samo momboV presented a
roport of tho Finance committeo
ou olectrio light pay roll items.
They find that tho inspector, re
ceiving $175 a month, is omploycd
by tho'tolophono company atS200
a mouth. His salary os inspector
is entirely out of proportion to
tho work done, as an inspection
of tho Hues proves. They recom
mend that the salary of inspector
bo placed at $125 a month, and
that tho inspector devote his
whole time to tho oloclric light
work of tho (Jovorniiiont.
Tho roport was laid on tho ta
bloto bo considered with tho bill,
which was then taken up on tho
order of tho day.
Rop. Richards spoko ou tho
electric light matter. In Novem
ber last the Govornmont asked tho
Hawaiian Electric Company to
submit a proposition for lighting
tho streets of Honolulu. Tho
company had dono bo, but that
was not boforo tho House. This
was a case whoro tho man should
not bo discussed. Tho committeo
had found tho electric light lines
of tho Government in a wrotched
condition. Thoy wero tho worst
thing in all the public works.
AYires worofastenocl to houses and
trees, and in places hung within
dangerous roach of pooplo. In
ono instanco tho committeo saw a
child take hold of a wire, and, if
tho curront had been on, that
child's life would havo gone out
liko that (snapping his fingers).
This ltom of tho inspector s sala
ry was tho only ono tho commit
too recommonded to havo changed.
Ho believed a man could bo got
to attoud properly to tho lines Tor
$125 a month.
Rop. Rycroft told of his obser
vations m company with Mr.
Richards. Thoy had seen a con
ductor hanging over n veranda,
and while discussing it thoy saw
n Japauoso child tako hold of it.
If it had been a livo wire that
would have boon a dead child.
Tho inspoctor was getting a largo
salary aud ought to koop tho linos
in good condition.
Rep. AVinston asked tho Attor
ney Goneral to givo tho views of
lli!iihttr Smith could not help
thinking that tho bad condition of
tho hum was over-stated, yet ho
could not doubt tho truth of what
members of tho cominittoo said
they had seen. If wires had lost
their covering they should bo at
tended to. As to tho question of
turning tho lights over to tho com
pany, the offer mado wos at tho
into ot $10 a light. If an agree
ment was arrived at, tho proposi
tion would como up in tho form
of n bill. Rovorting to tho mat
tor of tho lines, he ropeated his
suspicion that tho statements
modo had boon exaggerated. Ho
asked how ho Tinomon of
tho Hawaiian Electric Co.
and of tho Mutual Telophono
Co., as well as tho Govornmont in
spector, could overlook such con
ditions. Rop. Richards replied that tho
different concerns used each
othor's poles for convenience, aud
it suited all of them to say nothing
about theso things. Ho could say
that tho condition of tho lines
was absolutely dangerous, and if
ho had his way ho would stop tho
plant that night.
Minister Smith discussed tho
electric lighting in connection
witli tho water sorvico. Ho hoped
tho salary of tho inspector would
not bo cut down, and askod if a
competent man could bo got for
$125 a mouth.
Rop. Richards thought in fact
was confident that a good man
could bo had for that salary.
Thoro wore perquisites of tho

Aftor furthor conversation Rop.
Richards accopted an amendment
of tho Attornoy-Goneral to mako
tho salary $150 a mouth, but in
sisted on tho ridor that tho in
spector shoutd dovoto his whole
timo to tho duties of that oilico.
Rop. Rycroft wanted to kuow
why tho salary should bo placed
at $150 whon tho cominittoo had
roported that a good man could bo
got for $125. Had thoy so much
monoy that thoy could pport it
around in that way ?
Minister Smith answered thnt
it was becauso ho did not boliovo
in hiring cheap mon for bucIi
work. Ho told a socond timo of
having to havo his now houso re
wired on account of poor work
dono in tho first instanco.
