"It may make rules for tho plague sit

tho plumbing business.
"This point camo out on the Horn In

When tho question was askod an to
what law tho money should bo expend

presides over tho sober hued Chroni

nerfectlv well ablo to toko caro ol
themselves; tho other Journalists aro
simply concerned in keeping a clear
ring for tho combatants, eo that their
Ink may flow freely and in large quan
tities. Millard, so far, Is credited with
first ink. Ho revives tho charge that
tho fair Mabel is guilty of plagiarism
In her book Hawaii Nel, and also In an
artlclo about Mexico. Tho lady editress
has not yet replied, but sho may bo
looked for tomorrow, and may bo trust
ed to stab hard, with venomous pea
and acrid ink, when once sho lets down
her back hair. In tho meantime, whilst

Thero wa3 nothing In tho constitution

General called attention to tho clause
In tho constitution nuthorlzlns ap

If this Item belonged to tho appropria

Achl, that tho Item bo stricken out.
Both gentlemen wero In sympathy with

For many months past tho Inter-

tho great need for more boats to keep
up with tho over Increasing sugar
trade, particularly between tho Island
of Kauai and Honolulu. Tho stcamrrs
of the company havo been Jespntchtd
with as much rapidity ns possible In
order to prevent unnecessary piling up
of sugar on tho Garden Isle.
Notwithstanding this fact tho stc.un
crs havo been unablo to copo with tho
situation. Tho last steamer from Kauai
brought the news of 1CO.U01 bags of
sugar at tho various plantations with
this amount being added to very rapid

directors of the I. I. S. N. Co. met at
tho main offlco of tho company yes

an order for a new steamer ns soon
