COASTING LAW AND HAILS
Will Foreign Yessels Carry Hail Between
Honolulu and Coast Ports?
Tb9 Lccil, Authorities at Sea on
Qutstlon Wbat tbe United Slates
Tho question as to whether after tho
extension of tho United States shipping
laws to the Territory of Hawaii, for
eign vessels will be allowed to carry
malt to the Coast from Honolulu, has
rnlscd considerable discussion. In
quiries thtis far mado have failed to
settle tho question and tho only sec
tion In tho United States Revised Sta
tutes bearing on tho point Is not ex
plicit. The section In question says:
"For transporting tho mall between
tho United States and any foreign port,
lUUllIlllfe 111 U lUiVibii 1'uibi iiw vuv-
master General may allow as compen
satlon, If by a United States stonm
ship, any sum not exceeding tho sen
and United btatcs Inland -fostago; and
It by a foreign steamship or sailing
vessel, any sum not exceeding tho sea
postage, on tho mall so transported."
When tho question was asked of Cap
tain Merry this morning ho stated
that It was his opinion, nlthougii there
wcro no direct Instructions, that the
general United States statute, which
provides that the United States malls
shall only bo enrried In American built
vessels manned by American officers,
would cover tho caso here, as this ter
ritory would bo under tho coastwise
trade Tho question in tho absence of
specific Instructions he conmdcriid a
hard one to answer.
Mr. Doyd of the United States con
sular office was not certain wnat tho
ruling would be, but was Inclined to
think that Bcctlon 4,009 ot me L. S. He
vised Statutes, quoted aOove, would al
low malls to bo Bent to tho Coast af
ter tho extension ot tho shipping laws
to this Territory. In tho meantime in
quiries ot tho Washington authorities
will bo officially made regarding the
Sections 3977 and 3978 of tho llcvlsed
Statutes provide that "the matter of
any steamboat passing between ports
or places in tno United States" shall
deliver all letters or packets brought
by him to tho postmaster at tho port
of arrival, nnd that ho shall receive
from tho postmaster two cents for each
letter or packet so delivered, "unless
tho same is carried under a contract for
carrying the malls" failure to so de
liver tho matter making tho master
llablo to a penalty of ono hundred and
fifty dollars: and that "tho Postmaster
General may pay, to tho master or own
er of any vessel not regularly employed
In carrying the mall, two cents for each
letter carried by such vessel between
ports or places in tho United States."
Thcso provisions contain no exclu
sion ot foreign steamers, and, ns
American steamers under contract to
carry tho malls do not recclvo tho sea
postage of two cents n letter, the ques
tion of discriminating in favor of
American steamers with mails between
contract dates would very rarely occur.
It would only happen In tho caso ot
two non-mall contract steamers, an
American nnd a foreign, without anv
odds as to speed, leaving cither end of
tho San Francisco-Honolulu roato on
tho samo day. In such n caso there
should be no question at all, for, as n
matter of course, the mall would bo
sent by the American boat.

An attempt was mado In Honolulu
over two years ago to raise money to

there was no endowment fund to

Auckland, .prll 14. Tho question of
the plaguo wa slntroduccd by tho May
or (Mr. David Goldlc) at tho special
meeting of tho City Council last night.
Ho said ho considered that thoy should
ask tho Government to Bhut o'f steam
er communication with Sydney, for a
time at least. It was a serious matter,
of course, but he really thought that
somo steps should be taken. Auckland
was ono of tho worst places that the
plaguo could como to, and It was the
nearest to Sydnoy.
Mr. KIdd considered tho course- a
very wise ono to adopt. Ho tnought
It would be far wiser, considering tho
small amount ot trado that wbs now
dono with Sydney, nnd considering tho
risk attending that small imount of
trado, to shut oft communication. The
question had como to be ono of vory
serious import. Ho had spoken to sev
eral medical men and they quite agreed
that the proposal ot the Mayor was ono
of the steps thnt should bo taken. Ho
would move that a deputation, consist
ing of tho Mayor and thrco councillors,
wait on tho Premier and see what could
bo done In tho matter.
Mr. Salmon, who seconded, admitted
that tho step was a serious one, but
considered that the present Elite ot
affairs demanded it.
Mr. Warren was ot opinion that they
should cut off communication with nil
Mr. Entrlcan said tho mutter would
bo serious In the caso of largo cargo
boats from Homo to Now Zealand,
which tailed In at Sydney.
