Floods of Mud
On Queen Street
Editor evening Bulletin: I wish to
call attention, through the columns of
your valuablo paper, to tho nuisance
at the corner of queen and Alakea
streets. Slnco several months already
Queen street has been submerged by
water, pumped from building lots on
Merchant street, several Inches deep,
and tho trafllc for vehicles and bicycle
riders Is severely Inconvenienced, be
sides the mud and filth do not at all
Improvo the sanitary conditions. It Is
Indeed a crying shame, that tho author
ities let this nulsanco go on for such
a long time. Why docs not tho sani
tary Inspector report about It, and why
do not the taxpayers and residents of
the locality register a big kick? Tho
Minister of tho Interior and tho Bu
reau ot Public Roads should give the
matter Immediate attention.
In connection with tho matter com
plained of nbove, a case' came before
Judge Wilcox In the District Court this
morning. Two clerks ot H. Hackfeld
& Co. wero wheeling to their duties
and, coming to the bo in question, ran
their bicycles unon tno siuewaiK 10 g
past. They endangered nobody, but a
policeman took them promptly under
Judge Wilcox, when the young men
wero brought beforo him, observed
that ho considered them excusable un
der tho circumstances. When ono
brnnch of tho Government permitted
such a vile nuisance to exist uncheck
ed, ho was not going to strictly en
force tho law against a breach of the
regulations of another department. Ho
dismissed tho charge.
This morning a prominent business
man called tho Bulletin's attention to
nnothcr nulsanco permitted In the
near vicinity of tho foregoing ono. That
Is tho boarding of new building ope
rations at Merchant and Alakea
streets. Tho builders havo not only
helned themselves liberally to street
space, but have mado a sharp right
anglo ot tho fence. Tho result Is that
a conveyance on ono street cannot bo
seen approaching tho crossing by n
driver or bicycler or pedestrian coming
along tho other street. Already two
bicyclists havo been ditched thero from
t.s cause. It may be mentioned also
that the water making tho bog at
Queen and Alakea streets Is also a nul
sanco In Merchant street. Thero Is
not Burning of sufficient capacity for
carrying tho Hood, hence it overflows

Additional Court Notes.

trusteo of tho estato of James G. Hay

House and Senate
Hon. J. Lot Kaulukou, Speaker ot
tho Houso of Representatives, was re
quested to state tho reasons for his
action In calling that branch of tho
Legislature to assemble, this afternoon.
Ho said that ho was not refusing to
give his reasons, but he preferred that
tho reporter get the Information from
Mr. Gear, who knew as much about it
Representative A. V. Gear, on being
questioned, Bald thero had been no
meeting of members to consider the
matter. The House was called simply
becnuso tho Constitution of the Repub
lic ot Hawaii required the Legislature
to nsscmblo on the third Wednesday of
Pcbruary every altcrnato year.
Hon. W. C. Wilder. President of tho
Senate, wns asked what ho was going
to do about that body, slnco Speaker
Kaulukou had called the House of Rep
resentatives to nssemlc. He replied:
"Nothing at nil. I am going to Ig
nore tho matter entirely. I have no
more right to convene the Senate than
"What would be tho use of meeting
under prvnt circumstances? Wc
could not get more than four or flvo
members together, and for that num
ber to meet and adjourn from day to
day would be n farce."
Mr. Wilder, In further conversation,
said ho had never been too hopeful
about tho quick pasago of tho Hawa
iian territorial bill. Prom his obser
vation of Congressional proceedings he
Judged that a matter of this kind would
not bo hastily concluded. Referring to
tho necessities of government here,
Mr. Wilder remarked:
"If tho Council of State had the pow
er to vote, that large amount ot money
for sewers, it has tho power to vote
money for anything else. Although 1
am very glad wo aro going to havo
sewers, I do not think tho Council of
State had tho power to mako such an
appropriation. It cannot bo called an
emergency, becauso It will take a year
and a halt to completo the sewers. It
Is not stamping out tho plaguo. Still,
as I havo said, I am glad wo aro going
to havo tho sewers."
Mr. Wilder hopes that If tho territor
ial bill Is deferred over this session,
President McKlnley will take prompt
action for having cither tho old or a
new Legislature asscmblo to do tho
necessary business of tho Islands.
Tho purser ot tho Aorangi kindly
furnished tho Bulletin with tho fol
lowing report of that vessel:

was that tho members of tho Legisla

tho calling oft of tho election. Im
mediately after, It says that all elective
officers continuo In office. There seems
to be nothing clearer than that Presi
