AY. A. Bowon, tho Financo
Comraittoo of tho Board, iireseut
cd the following roport:
"It was my purpose in roforring
to committeo tho transfer of Ha
waiian Govornment bonds to the
General Treasury, as proposed,
merely to get beforo tho Depart
mont of Public Instruction in
clear, spocifio form au exact state
ment of what was boing trans
ferred. "Secretary Bodgors had pro
parod a schedule of the bonds in
question, but tho said schedule
was not at hand for roforonco.
Honco it seemed desirablo to de
fer action until a comparison of
tho bonds with tho schedule had
takon place, and tho latter thus
become fully voriiiod. This has
boon done I havo oxamined tho
bonds, thoir dates, liuniborc,
amounts, time due, rnto of inter
est and amounts of overdue inter
est, nnd havo to stato tho schedule
ttB propared by Secretary Bodgors
"In total tho bonds amount to
$11,100, and tho ovordtio interest
amounts to $3,1118, making a full
amount of prosent transfer, sug
gested nnd recommended by Min
ister Cooper, of $17,2118, to which
could bo ndded, I suppose, the in
terest yet to accrue. J
"Upon looking up our authority
to make tho trunsfer proposed, I
find thnt tho langungo used is not
in any mannor mandatory. Also
I find no roforence to compensa
tion; honco it would seom to bo
entirely wilhiu our discretion
whothor to transfer or not.
"Tho possession of bonds en
abled tho old Board of Education
to obtuiu bouofits, such as tho
purchase of the Emma 6troot pro
perty for High School, and the
question arises whether the hold
ing of the bonds may not in liko
manner bo of B01110 advautage to
tho Department. If it is impossi
ble, thou thoro can bo no object in
kooping thorn, nnd tho sooner tho
transfer is mado tho bottor.

Aftor some discussion it was
voted that tho bonds bo surrond
ored at once, and tho Board theu
