to Erect a Warehouse.
Before the late Captain J, A. King,
Minister of tho Interior, died In office
ho had ordered Superintendent of Pub
lic Works Howell to fill In with wharf
construction tho Jog between tho
Oceanic and Allen & Robinson's
wharves. Mr. Howell has never over
taken tho order nnd now tho mnttcr Is
pressing for n special reason.
W. Q. Irwin & Co.. Ltd., In a letter
to Minister Young advise him that the
new steamers of the Oceanic Steamship
Company will ho calling here In a few
months hence. As they will bo under
contracts for carrying American rind
English malls with dispatch. It Is de
sirable that they havo good facilities
for discharging, loading nnd coaling
The Oceanic wharf Is 292 feet In
length, of which only 280 feet Is
available for handling fi eight nnd
coaling. By filling tho Jog In question
a total length of 470 feet would bo
obtained. If not given tho additional
space, tho forward hatch would be out
of reach of the wharf.
Wilder & Co. and Lcwers & Cooke
have for a long time been using the
Biiaeo between thoso wharves for dls
charging lumber. They nre not averse
to having the wharves united, If only
they can bo nssured thnt no ware
house will be erected to block their
traffic. The Government does not wish
to curtail the lumber firms' operations,
but Minister Young hopes one tiny to
sec a new lumber ground established
out of tho way of Interference .

he was In destitution and had no home.
Ills request was compiled with, but

C. M. Cooke stated to tho Bulletin
this morning that tho critics of tho
Board of Health Finance Committee
nro doing that body a great injustice
"Wo havo sent up 170 different bills to
tho Auditor dcncral," said Mr. Cooke,
"and wo nro going nhend as rapidly
as possible. Tho delay Is duo In some
Instances to the merchants themsolvci,
through tho bills not being properly
made out, and often to tho fact that
the bills must be approved at so many
different camps. I havo a bill right
here, that I havo been running around

have been threo times to see tho mnn
whose approval must bo obtained, nnd

Interest of tbe Country.
"1 am not afraid of tho Hawaiian
vote," Senator Henry Watcrhouso said
this morning and continued:
"My reason Is that, having been as

It Is approaching tho fiftieth anniver

havo confidence that they will do oh
well, for both themselves nnd the
country, ns a large proportion of the

had practically the entire voting pow

tlmo when electioneers collected till the
tax receipts of the people they could
lay their hands on. As you know, It
wos necessary for a voter to show his
tax receipt at the polls. I, however,
collected no tax receipts.
"The Hnwnllnns nro now free from
certain Influences that used to bear
strongly upon them nt election, but
even when subject to those Influencos
they acted moro Independently than
many people give them credit for hav
"I am satisfied that the natives know

want good government as earnestly as
