Council of State Has
Its Work Neirty Complete
'luo Council of.Stato met Friday af
ternoon at 3:15 p. m. There were
present President Dole, Ministers Da
mon and Young, and Councilors Ibcii
bcrB, Allen, Ka-ne, Hobcrteon, ICaulu
Itou, Itoblnson, Jones, Nott, Kennedy,
Ocar, Bolte, Ena nnd Achl.
Tho minutes of the previous meet
ing wcio read, Corrected ami approved.
Mr. Jones reported from the k'lnanco
ommlttce upon the total of Art 2 be
ing ?l,-lSfi,0S5.92. Adopted.
Pn.vlnjJ Fcilcrnl ISIIIh.
President Dole said tho Executive
had not been able to get all tho Infor
mation desired nbout tho Chinese de
tained at Quarantine) Island under tho
action of tho Federal authorities. Ho
asked tho secretary, however, to read
a report from J. D. McVeigh, lu tliu ah
senco of Agent C. U. Reynolds. Tho
report rend was long nnd contradictory
of tho ground taken by Mr. Reynolds.
In conclusion the President said that
whllo probably tho final obligation w.13
with tho United States, tho Hawaiian'
Government was probably prlmnrlly
liable. If Mr. ncyuolils' statement was
correct tho Hawaiian Government whs
llablo; If Mr. McVeigh was correct the
Unite.. States was liable. Tho matter
Is largely one of veracity. Mr. Mc
Stockcr, under tho Hawaiian Govern
ment, and Mr. Ilrown, under thn Feder
al Government, acted together for tho
Mr. Uolto said ull supplies were di
vided only for convenience. Ho Illus
trated by eitlng tho case of tho Metro
politan Market, who icfuscd to fur
nish meat until assured by Mr. Rey
nolds that tho Hoard ot Health was re
sponsible and could pay under tho rul
ing of W. Q. Smith, Attornoy General.
Tho dlUlculty was that in tho present
caso tho Hoard of Health had failed to
collect again from the steamer. Under
Mr. Reynolds' statement tho ehargo
was made against tho Hoard of Health;
tho Hawaiian Government was respon
sible nnd could afterwards collect tho
money It possible.
Mr. Robertson did not think tho Gov
ernment should pay first and then col
lect from some Imaginary person. Ho
did not think It possible for tho mer
chants now to mnko out that they did
not know to whom nnd where they
sold the goods. At that tlmo tho case
was notorious nnd tho papers woro full
of It. Tho Roard of Health had noth
ing to do with tho matter. TJicro was
no liability In tho customs bureau.
Hackteld & Co. knew tho ins and outs
of tho whole transaction from tho first.
A Federal officer, while enforcing a
Federal law, Incurred the expense nnd
It should be collected from tho Federal
Govornmont. Tho least tho merchants
could do was to try to collect their
claims In Washington. .
Mr. Gear said If the Metropolitan Co.
had tho authority of tho President of
tho Roard ot Health ho should look to
him for his pay. Tho question of re
sponsibility hnd been generally dis
cussed In public nt tho time. Ho ngrc?d
with Mr. Robertson that tho merchants
should try to collect nt Washington
ilrst. On the other hand, It they failed
to get their money they could bring tho
matter before tho next Legislature,
wilch would meet soon. Ho believed
that If tho proper representations wcro
made to Washington the Federal Gov
ernment would act favorably.
Mr. Achl thought tho hills hhould bo
paid; whisky, cigars, cocktail mixers
and other refreshments O. K.'d by Jack
McVeigh had been paid, and ho thought
these goods for necessaries furnished
In tho same good faith should be paid.
Hu preferred to believe Mr. Reynolds' I
statement; ho had never bought whls-
ky, nnd a box of elgats a day, like Mc
Veigh, and there was no reason a send
ing tho merchants to Washington for
Mr. Jones united tho bills bo paid,'
but withdrew his motion when Mr.
Gear pointed out that the amounts
wcro ulieady in the bill nnd. If not
stricken out, would stand.
The '05 ClnlrriH.
Mr. Gear then asked tho Govurununt
what was tho status of tho liulemnlty
claims ngalnBt tho Government of tho
suspected prlconeis of 181)3, who wero
not brought to trial. Hu understood
tho matter had been referred by tho
United Stutcs Government to tho local
Government and that tho payment of
these claims wero blng pushed by
Great Rritain and other governments.
Ho thought there was danger, after the
passago of tho territorial hill, that tho
claims would full In Washington and
also hero under a limitation of power
to act fuithcr. He wished to ask If
it was tho intention of tho Government
to pay these claims, and, If so, what
provision, If any, lind been or would 1
be mado to get tho monoy therefor. .
rresiucm uoio repueu;
"Tho claims wero reported to this
government by tho United States Gov
ernment, after being brought up by llio
English Embassador at Washington.
Tho United States then referred them
to this government. Wo havo several
letters from tho Washington author
ities In tho matter. Tho Exscutlvo
Council has dono a considerable
amount of work upon them, bin lias
not bo able to finish them on account
of the press of other work. At present
wo can simply report progress. I don't
know what you mean by making a
ottlement' of tho claims, Mr. Gear,"
replied the Executive. "Wo understood
tho Government at Washington to
mean 're-consider' tho claims nnd dls
poso of them. Wo have no request from
the Washington Government to pay
nny claims. Simply, to reconsider them
nnd dispose of them as we understand
Mr. Gear "Then that might mepn
tho simple shelving of tho claims, and
non-action. Would that trai)3(or the

liability from tho Republic to tho ler
iltory and to thn United States Gov
ernment?" 1'rcsldeut Dolo "No, it would not bo
uon-actlnu, but simply a decnlon rs
to tho morltH of tho claims, or a deci
sion ng.ilust sumo of the claims."
Tho third roadlug ot Act 2 was taken
up and tho total ot fl.4n6.02n.02 waR In

On motion ot Mr, Gear $420 was in
sorted for tho salnry of Superintendent

thought it wiso to make tho provision
even it tho money was not uson.
On motion ot Mr. Jones a totil of
$530,780.82 was inserted, tho bill was
passed ai a wholo and ordered printed.
Act 4 was taken up and Mr. Gear
asked tho report ot tho committee on
bonded warehouso at Hllo bo again
considered, as ho saw tho item thore
for had been dropped In somo way from
tho bill. On his motion $8,000 wa3 in
serted to build "Hllo Customs Ware
houses ot brick or stone."
Mr. Kennedy asked If the Mlnlsler
of Interior could not anticipate tho
signing ot tho appropriations act by
President McKInley and push the work
on tho new pumping plant.
Minister Young said it was a good
suggestion, which ho had not thought
of, but he would net upon it at once.
Mr. Gear pointed out an error in tho
item for tho Lahalna water works and
the amount wan raised to $2C,C00.
Tho total of $1,577,791.20 was Insert
ed and Act 4 passed second reading.

Several weeks ago the Ilullctln pub
lished home of the facts relative to n
native woman, moro than a hundred
yenrs old, discovered In want and squa
lor by tho sanitary Inspectors. A con
temporary on Information without
proof contradicted tho story, alleging
hi tho effect that tho coutenarlan re
ferred to was both comfortublo and
rich. In fact, It worked up soveral
biographical sketches of tho aged lady,
of whom it would never havo heard ex
cepting from tho Bulletin's nows col

takes back Its contradiction. It finds
ns usual that tho Bulletin sets tho stan
dard ot accuracy besides maintaining
priority in giving tho news.
