C. Hedcmann, E. K. Paxton and I C.

Olaa plantation which arc cheering to
holders of shares In that property.
All tho way from 20,000 to 30,000
tons of sugar Is estimated as tho first
crop of Olaa to bo harvested in 1901.
Thoro Is 1300 acres of cano growing
beautifully, and 700 acres is ready for
planting, besides which between 2000
nnd 3000 acres Is being rapidly prepar
ed. Grading for tho mill site Is progress
ing. The railway from Hllo has work
lnc trains running to within three
miles of tho mill site, and will reach
that spot lnsldo of thirty days. Part
of the material and machinery for the
mill Is on hand.
An ample supply of water for
fjumlng the cane to tho mill has de
veloped, which ensures a cheap solu
tion of the transportation problem.
Frank IJ. McStocker has established a
high standing for himself as manager.
His successful solution of labor trou
bles has been masterly, attracting the
wondering admiration of experienced
plantation men. With an efficient corps
of overseers under him, Mr. McStock

REBUILDING OF CHINATOWN
The bacteriological committee o.i
Chinatown soil aro awaiting the renort
of Dr. Hoffmann on samples. Upon
that their recommendation to tho
Board of Health will depend us to
whether Chinatown should be opened
forthwith to rebuilding. It is not
thought for a moment that tho Board
has power, outside ot tho question or
Infection, to hold tho land down.
However great tho public dcslro to
havo rebuilding postponed until tho
Legislature could establish now street
lines and remodel flro limits, the Board
has really nothing to do with thoso
tblncs no matter If they aro indirectly
"related to sanitation. A member of
tho Board, who explains tho situation
In tho senso Just expressed, adds thct
another moving consideration Is tho
fact that a new Chinatown Is rising In
patches all over tho city area. Ths
quickest check to this process would be
to open up tho old Chinatown Ito.

lulu Quiet Rtlgos in tbe Camps.
Lahalna, Maul, April 2C. Tho
strike both nt Lahalnn nnd Olowalu
has becu nmlcably settled by and bo
tween tho parties concerned. Manager
Alhborn of tho Pioneer Mill, Lahalna,
has acceded to thu dcmnndii of tho Ja
panese, and hns paid about $1500 In set
tlement; $500 to each of tho families
of the thrco Japancso who wcro acci
dentally killed by the falling of a pan
In the mill some tlmo ago.
Tho enso of Hashimoto Sclken
against the Olowalu Sugar Co. nnd A.
Haneberg, manager, hns elso been
amicably settled, Mr. Haneberg paying
about $1,000 to the Japanese strikers
who have all gone back to work. This
case which was continued from last
week was heard at Lahalna courthouse
before Circuit Judgo W. Kulua at 11
o'clock this morning.
On account ot tbo prior settlement,
Mr. Hashimoto Sclken, the plaintiff,
did not appear In court, and so Judge
Kalua decided In favor of defendant
appellant, and plaintiff to pay costs.
The contract of Hashimoto Selkcn has
been cancelled, that being ono of the
conditions of the settlement.
During tho trial In court this morn
ing, there wcro hardly nr.y Japanese
present in court, tho threatening atti
tude of n few weeks ago having dis
appeared. At no stage ot tho strike,
however, have the Japanese shown any
disposition to do violence to any one,
nor even to any of tho lunas who were
Inimical to them. It cannot bo un
derstood how tho groundless and ab
surd rumor reached Honolulu about
tho burning of the Pioneer mill or the
killing ot the lunas.
The Japanese on the two plantations
appear to be contented nnd happy
with the settlement but It does not
mean that they will not strike again
should any of the Impolitic luniyj do
violence or bodily barm to them again.
The president of tho Japanese Im
migration Company and his aide have
dono a great deal towards reaching
this final settlement, for the president
himself, who also represents the Jap
anese Consulate, has a great Influence
over bis people here.

SALARIES OF PHYSICIANS
They l.Vfre Paid on the Basis of
Regular Salarlai Were Stepped Consequently
Tnerfl Vas Nj Infringement of Hie Law Re
fard!ng D.awicjJ of Two Salaries.
Considerable comment has been
made lately on the salaries received by
physicians nnd others from the Board
of Health for emergency work. The
opinion hns, at various times, been ex
pressed that such payments wcro made
contrary to law. Tho law, which will
be found In section 4 ot Act CO, session
laws of 1898, provides that no person
drawing a salary of $1,800 or more per
annum shall bo entitled to other or
further compensation from the govern
ment. To clear the matter up n Bulletin
rcpreseptatlve called on Dr. Wood who
"I spoko about the matter when it
first came up in the Board ot Health,
Immediately after tho breaking out of
the plague. As I understood it, one
man, under tho law, could not draw
two ot'ruoro salaries, if bis regular
salary Amounted to" $1,800. As I say,
I asked the question It it would be le
gal to pay an employe both regular and
emergency salaries, the two amount
ing to more than $1,800. I remember
tbat I was told that it was all right, but
I do not remember who said so. Tho
law, I understood, was to apply only to
regular salaries under the npproprla
"It this statement Is not exactly
correct It would not mako nny differ
once. Take for Instance tho case of
Dr. Howard who received $400 a
month; this was his regular salary
under the appropriations for suppres
slon ot bubonic plague. None ot this
salary "came out ot tbo regular Day
rolls; and bis regular salary of $175 a
month at the dispensary, was drawn by
Dr. Myers, while Dr. Howard was do
ing emergency work for the Board of
Health. Dr. Myers' regular salary of
$75 a month, under the act to mltlgato,
he ccud to draw as long as he drew.
Dr. Howard s salary at tbo dlspensny.
"in the enso of Dr. Hoffmann there
may be an exception. He was em
ployed as bacteriologist of the Board
of Health before the plague, at a sal
ary ot $200 a month, with the privilege
ot doing outside practice. When the
plague came ho represented that his
outside practice amounted to $500 a
month, so wo gavo him $500 a month
for emergency work; he continued to
draw his $200 a month, as bacterlolo-
elst. but both salaries wcro paid from
tho emergency fund. All tho salaries
havo been cut off I understand, from
April 15th, but perhaps Dr. Hoffmann's
may run on until May. Of this, how
ever, I am not certain."
Auditor General Austin said that the
only Instances wberb nn employe u
nnme appeared on two pay rolls was
whero the emergency salary was great
er than tho regular, then the latter waB
utilized to mako up tho difference. The
law had been strictly complied with In
every Instance as far ns the Auditor's
omco was concerned. Tho cmorgoncv
salaries, as far as the bills had come
In. bad been stopped on April 15th and
he presumed nil wcro cut off at tho
Changes at Seaman's Club.
A change of management In tho Sea
men's Club will take plae-s today. C.
G. Smith, who hns nbty .md conscien
tiously pushed the best Interests ot tho
club forwnrd, will resign, his successor
not belug yet named. Mr. Smith
leaves tho club, with which h has been
connected as one ot tho founders, with
tho good will of his associates and of
Its many patrons and ho hns equal
aloha for thoso who by their apprecia
tion ot his cliorts have nldcd him In
the good'rcsultH now noticeable In tho
large nnd orderly attendances at every
meeting, showing that his munagement
hnB tilled, among sailors, a long felt
want and that ho has uuido thu Insti

Washington, D. C, April 7. Tho Ha
waiian Government bill, which passed
the House yestcrdny, went through
that body with much less friction than
was expected. This was due In tho
main to tho careful work ot Hcprcscu
tuJve Knox, who bad charge of tho
bill nnd of the evident disposition 'f
members ot all shades of political
faith to act for the best Interests of tbe
Hawaiian people as far as tbey under
stood Just what such Interests rcqulr
Jtood Just what such Interests required.
The House Territory Comlmttce, which
-as had charge ot the bill has had
much valuable aid from Col. Little of
the Islands, who has been called In
consultation by a number of the mem
burs ot tbe committee during tho con
sideration ot the bill. It wasdue in
the.maln to Col. Little's advice that
suffrage was extended beyond the limi
tations which were Imposed' by tho
original framing ot tho bill. 'It wn
also due to bis contention before the
committee that appeals in land matters
to the Secretary of the Interior aro al
lowed, and thnt the tlmo provided to
have the act go into effect was short
ened. Colonel Llttlo's position on
,w:o appointing power was also indors
ed by the supporters ot the measure
In the House, and under the Act as
ndopted tho Judiciary of tbe Islands
will be appointed by tbe President of
tho United States Instead of by tho
Governor of tho new Territory. As
this fcaturo of tho bill Is Identical
with that of the Senate bill It may al
ready be regarded as established law.
It Is believed that little difficulty will
be met In adjusting the measures ns
passed by the Senato and House in it
that with but Uttic delay Hawaii will
havo a form of government to guide
be .Territorial form of existence. It
Is in the air that Hawaii will be a Ter
ritory but a comparatively short time
and that Statehood will bo the next
step to oc considered.
