tions. Frod J. Crosq, export olec
trical engineer nnd Lietits. E.
Storer Tico and O. A. Coolidgo of
tho Engineer's Corps woro also
active iu plying questions.
Superintend ant Buck was re
called to comploto his unfinished
testimony. Tho points brought
out by Mr. Buck wero ns follows:
That tho accident was caused by a
short circuit; that tho wire was
probably burnt oil by coming iuto
contact with tho noiKllbor wire on
tho other sulo ot tho circuit;
that this other wiro was half
way across1 Richards stroot and
was bo bndly burnod that it broke
when handled by tho liuemou;
that tho broaking of tho pin from
tho cross pieco wns caused by auts
boring nbout and leaving only a
thin crust on tho outside; that
there aro other places in Honolulu
whoro, if wires woro to bo brought
in contnet, a Bhort circuit would
result; that a groat deal of tho wiro
of tho city has broken insultation;
thnt this matter ha3 been reported
to tho Govornmont; that now wires,
arms and poles aro bciug put ou;
that in most cases tho oldvvires
are put up becauso thero is not
sufficient uevv wiro; that tho old
wire is not as safo as tho now.
Mr. Cross asked particularly
about thu mattor of inspection. It
was brought out by both Mr. Buck
and Mm Rowell lator, that there
waa no inspector for underwriters
oxeept in houso wiring. By nttor
noy Bo Bolt, assisting tho Gov
ernmont, it wns brought out thnt
tho wholo system in Jfonolulu was
not in good order. Moro mon
could bo usod to good udviiutuei'.
Tho mattor of using iron pegs for

by Mr. Cross.
Arthur Whitlock, James Crauo
