Senate Bill Is a Strong One Following

Washington, Jan. 1C The report of
tho Scnato Committee on Commcrco
upon tho bill extending United States
laws relating to commerce, navigation
and merchant seamen to Hawaii Is a
strong one. It will be remembered that
this bill passed tho House unanimously
at tho last session ot Congress and was
favorably icportcd to tho Senate. Tho
Scnuto Committee on Commcrco now
declares It desirable that this bill
should ho passed at an early day. In

vides for tho lcgistratlon of vessels
owned by Hawallans at the tlmo of

In accoid with tho precedents of tho
Alaska and Louisiana purchases. With
tho transfer of sovereignty Hawaiian
vessels look to tho United States for
piotcctlon, nnd they should receive tho
full privileges ot vessels of tho United
States. Tho bill, as passed by tho
Houso In tho last Congress, proposed
tho nationalization of vessels owned
by Hawallans on July 7; 1S93, the dato
of tho approval of tho resolution of
annexation. Tho treaty for tho pur
chaso ot Louisiana was proclaimed on
October 21, 1803, and tho registry act,
passed In 1801, provided that vessels
owned by American citizens or Inhabi
tants of the ceded territories on De
cember 20, 1803, could bo registered.
Tho Alaska treaty was proclaimed Juno
20, 1807, nnd tho registry act, passed
in 1808, provided that vessels owned
by tho inhabitants ot tho ceded terri

for tho annexation ot Hawaii several
vessels wero brought under tho Hawa

Hdltor Hvenlng Uulletln: Yesterday
I defended a Chinaman named Ah Kong
In tho District Court for tho offence of
changing his "residence without a per
mit from tho Board of Health or tho
Citizens' Sanitary Committee." Tho
evidence developed the facts to bo that
tho Chtuamnn, who Is employed on
Ucrctanla street, received permission
from his mistress to leave tho houso
nnd visit his brother, which ho did,
leaving homo on tho 2Sth of Jauiuir)
and returning on February 1st.
It wns also proved that those days
wero tho gicat Chlncso holidays, being
tho end of tho old year and beginning
of tho now.
During tho trial I maintained that
the commltteo wns n body unknown to
tho law nnd possessed absolutely no
authority to create "sub-Inspectors"
and that so tailed sub-Inspectors were
not authorized by any law to enter or
search any premises. In summing up
tho ease I called tho attention ot the
judge, W. L. Wilcox, L'sq., to tho fuct
that tho two circuit judges wero mem
bers of tho commltteo nnd tliat one.
Judge Perry, had been prompting tho
prosecution olllccr during tho trial and
thercforo It was absurd to appeal as
thcro was 110 unprejudiced court to
, which I had the right to appeal and so
I advised my client to pay his lino ns I
saw no other redress for him.

foice, upon tho fact that tho Circuit

It appears tho Executive Council litis
some doubt ns to whether Mr. Hart

that the extension of the sowcrago sys
tem may proceed under an appropria
tion by tho Council ot Stnte. Tho mat
ter wns considered nt yesterday's
Cabinet meeting. Mail advices aro ex

ly clarify tho question.
Minister Young said this morning
that he wuh In favor of having tho
sowerngo extended ns soon as possible.
As ho had said at tho conference with
tho Hoard ot Health tho other day, tho
Hoard ought to hold down tho terri
tory pf burnt Chinatown until sanitary
Improvements for tho district be deter
mined. No building should bo allowed
there beforo sewers can bo put down.
Tho Minister ot the Interior was not
Mitlullrd that It would bo tn tho Inter

wholly disappeared, that tho rapid

Minister Young strongly adheres lo
tho opinion he gnvo at tho meeting
already mentioned, with rcgnrd to tho
question ot alleys In tho rebuilding ot
the burnt district. If thcro nre to be
alleys, let them bo mado Impervious to
water with bitumen paving. Then they
may bo Kept clean. Slxty-flvo foot

Mr. Young says, for thoy would leave

Tho Minister wns asked whnt ho
