Frank 8. Dodge sent a letter to Gov
ernor Dole last night declining the ap
pointment as Superintendent of Pub
lic Works of the Territory. The friends
of Jas. H. Boyd of tho Interior office
" are strongly urging his appointment to
tho position. Mr. Doyd Is Intimately
acquainted with tho executive details
of the office and his appointment would
ho considered a proper recognition of a
capable Hawaiian In whom tho people
have full confidence. It Is also under
stood that tho friends of J. A. McCand
Icss aro urging his appointment.
, Mr. Gibson and Dr. C. T. Rodgers aro
candidates for the post of Superinten
dent of Public Instruction, although
tho friends of Mr. Townsond consider
him tho legical candidate.
Tho post of Treasurer is snid to bo
still an open proposition. It Is certain
MlnUtcr Damon will re tiro from offi

men aro mentioned on tho street tip
candidates, but so far aB known no one

and popular young attorney has been
" offered tho Attorney General's post,
but It Bccms doubtful whether any of
the bar leaders can bo prevailed upon
to lcavo their prlvato practice.
At the Orplicum.
"Tho Grand Duchess," Offenbach's
most popular opera, was tho bill at the
Orphcum last night. As a rule, Offen
bach Is tiresome and his music has bo
corao old styled but not so with "The
.. Grand Duchess." Tho brilliant, pas
slonato and swinging nlrs of "the mad
collolst," as tho composer was dubbed
by tho members of tho orchestra In
Paris of which he was a member, gave
tho Southwell Opera Co. arother op
portunity of winning the vor of Ho
nolulu's theater goers.
Miss Salllnger was a superb Duchess.
It Is next to impossible to Imagine any
ono looking more beautiful. So far it
t Is the best work Miss Salllnger has
; given us.
, MIss.Falrburn, of course, was an ex
cellent Prince Paul. This rlover little
woman with her knowledge of stage
craft could bo nothing else. .
Mr. Wolff as General Bautn was
again a favorite, putting all In a good
humor with his clever comedy.
Mr. Branson, being a comedian, gave
Fritz a broader touch of light comedy
than most tenors could and was more
Mr. Goff was rather peculiarly cast,
to glance at the program, but to see
hla performance of Nepomuc would
change your mind. He Is a comedian
of no mean ability.
Nance Bonvlllo was quite tin agree
able surprise as Baron Puck and Miss
Rosa as Wanda was quite plc.t&Ing.
Mr. Baker, tho tenor, was In tho au
dience enjoying tho performance "from
tho front" His opening In Fra Dlavolo
noxt wck Is looked forward to with a
great deal of interest and if appear
ances go for anything ho will kIvo a
bright, snappy performance.
A large number of people were pres

E. Baldwin, a special Inspector of the
Bureau of Immigration has occcn as
signed by Chief Powderly to go to Ha
waii and take chargo of tho Immigra
tion service In Honolulu. Mr. Bald
win Is subject to tho orders of tho Col
lector of Cnstoms at Honolulu. Mr.
Baldwin la eminently ilttcd for this
position, as ho Is thoroughly familiar
with tho rulings of tho Treasury De
partment regarding Immigration. Mr.
Powderly has authorized tho Chinese
Inspector at Honolulu to render aid and
assistance In tho establishment of tho
service on a permanent and good work
ing basis. Mr. Baldwin has been
studying tho Chlncso language, and Is
able to fairly converse In that difficult
medium. Ho will leave on Juno IS for
his now post.
Chief Clcry Lamed, of the Bureau of
Immigration, has been deputized by
Chief Powderly to proceed to Hawaii
later on. Mr. Larncd's mission to Ha
waii Is to Investigate tho needs of tho
Immigration servlco there, and to put
In forco all laws of the servlco which
aro applicable to Hawaii.
Senator J. K. Jones, chairman of tho
National Democratic Commlttco has
received a letter from Hawaiian who
said they were Democrats, and asking
him if the Convention would scat a
Hawaiian delegation should one como
to Kansas City July 4. Senator Jones
replied that the convention Itself would
have to pass on that question, but It Is
said ho advised tho Hawaiian Islanders
to send their delegation along nnd It
might be seated.
The Houso today passed Senator
Clark's blil to withdraw from salo or
lcaso tho grounds containing tho mau
soleum of tho Hawaiian royal family.
Some little debato attended the passage
of the bill. Representative Knox, from
tho Commlttco on Territories said, In
explanation of tho measuro: "This
simply withdraws from tho public
lands the mausoleum or graveyard
whero tho old Hawaiian kings nnd
royal families aro burled, sleeping In
unconsciousness of tho fact that we
have annexed tho Islands to tho United
States, it Is proper that their builal
placo should bo preserved."
Secretary Gago has transmitted the
following letter to Congress
United States Commission of Fish nnd
Fisheries, Washington, D. C. May
Sir: For tho purpose of carrying
out the provisions of section 91 of the
act to provide a government for the
Territory of Hawaii, approved April
30, 1900, I have tho honor to say that
tho sum of $0,500 will bo required, and
thcro Is transmitted herowlth tho pro
posed Item for the necessary appropria
tion. It will be tho puiposo of tho Com
mission to mako a careful Investiga
tion of tho fisheries, Ilshcry resources,
and fishery legislation of tho Territory,
with p. view to tho development of tho
Industry.. A small party of exports
from the commission will bo detailed
in Rtmlv nnd renort on tho various
J phases of the subject, ond It is prob
able that tho steamer Aiuatross win do
utilized for tho transportation of tho
party and for Investigation of the llsh
Ing grounds about the Islands.
GEO. M. BOWERS,
Senator Ross of Vermont has created
somewhat of a flurry by tho Introduc
tion of a bill to extend the civil ser
vice law to all appointments In the now
possessions of tho United States. The
text of tho bill, In part, Is as follows:
"That all appointments In civil offi
ces mado by tho President or nny head
of a department In Alaska, Hawaii, or
any place brought within tho Jurisdic
tion of tho United States by tho recent
treaty with Spain shall bo made Irres
pective of tho political opinions of the
persons appointed, and, ns far as con
sistent with tho proper performance of
tho duties of the office, In such a man
ner as to represent tho cntlro country.
Tho bill Is on the Senato calendar but
will probably not bo callod up for con
sideration at this session.
A bill has been Introduced in the
Houso for tho establishment of a naval
station at Pearl Harbor, Island of
Oahu, Hawaii, and for tho dredging of
approaches to Bald harbor. Under tho
bill, tho Secretary of tho Navy Is au
thorized to acquire by purchase or con-,
dcmnatlon, land aggregating 1,880
acres upon the shores of Pearl Har
bor and tho entrance thereto, namely:
First, the Island known as Mokuumc
umo'or iurd Island, comprising about
three hundred nnd seventy acres; s?o-.
ond, tho peninsular tract known as
Walplo, comprising about 820 acres;
third, a tract comprising about 385
acres lying to tho eastward of and
fronting upon tho entrance, to said har
bor; fourth, a tract comprising about
301 acres lying to tho westward of and
fronting upon the entrance to said har
bor; and for tho acquisition of theso
lands,- the bill appropriates J 150,000.
For tho purpose of Improving and
dredging the channel leading to Pearl
Harbor and In order to provide Bafe en
trance, thereto for vessels of G.OOO tons
tho bill appropriates $100,000.
There Is a fair chance of the bill be
coming a law at this session of Con
gress. Senator Daniel of Virginia has intro
duced a bill, which has been favorably
reported by tho Senate Committee on
Foreign Relations amending tho Hawa-
llaa" Government Act requiring all
money on deposit In tho Hawaiian Po3-
tal Savings Bank to be turned over to
tho Treasurer of tho United States on
tho first of July of this year. It places
tho Secretary of tho Treasury In chargo
of all tho assets of tho bank, and pro
vides mat tho money turned over to
tho Treasurer of the United States
shall be deposited in the United States
Tho bill also provides that the Sec
retary of the Treasury shall pay off the
debt of tho Republic of Hawaii an
amount not exceeding $4,000,000, In
cluding tho sum required to pay the de
positors in tho Hawaiian Postal Sav
ings Bank. It appropriates money
necessary to pay the same, and nn ad
ditional amount of $20,000 to pay the
expenses of executing tho provisions of
An effort has been mado by owneis
of Biltlsh shipping to havo an exeep
tlon mado In Individual cases to the np
plication of tho coastwise laws of the
United States to tho Islands. This ef
foit, however, has been unsuccessful.
Tho Treasury Department has, how
ever, agreed to remit the penalties in
tho cases of several vessels sailing ror
Honolulu from Pacific coast ports
should they fall to reach Honolulu bc
foio the new law goes Into effect.
Tho firs tof tho now vessels of tho
American - Hawaiian Steamship Com
pany will bo dispatched from New
York to Honolulu with a general enrgu
about July 30.
Tho sundry civil appropriation bill,
reported to the Senate to-day, contains
tho following Hawaiian Items:
For establishing quarantine stations
In Hawaii, $100,000; Territorial odlccni
and judges $21,000; for neccssnry cir
cuit Judges nt $3,000 each.
Tho delay In making Hawaiian ap
pointments Is causing Bomo little anx
iety among applicants. It is said that
tho President will wait but a short time
longer for word from Governor Dolo
before making appointments. Out of
courtesy to tho Governor tho list of
proposed appointments wcro submitted
to him for approval, but should the ox
pected approval not reach hero with
in the next few days the appointments,
It Is wild, will bo made without It.

Bill Hu Passed.
F. M. Brooks Is an Elk and Is Inter
esting himself In tho matter of estab
lishing In tho coming Territory of Ha
waii tho Benevolent and Protcctlvo Or
der of Elks. In this work ho has elicit
ed a curious letter from B. M. Allen,
Grand Exalted Ruler, dated at Bir
mingham, Ala., May 21, 1900. Tho fol
lowing extract therefrom would Indi
cate that Senator Morgan's public ser
vices aro not followed very closely by
his constituents, seeing that ho wan
a member of the Hawaiian Commission
that prepared the bill making Hawaii
a Territory, which was signed by Pres
ident McKlnley on April 30. It would
also show that John Mitchell of Ala
bama, a leading Democrat of Honolulu,
might do good service to his adopted
country by visiting his old home on a
lecturing mission. Mr. Allen, nftci
mentioning a letter from Mr. Brooks
to Grand Secretary Reynolds referred
to himself, writes:
"Section 18 of the Constitution
adopted January 1, 1900, reads as fol
lows: 'Each State and Territory of tho
United States shall constitute a separ
ate Jurisdiction of one or more dis
tricts ,ns tho Grand Lodge may deter
mine or as may be fixed by law.
"While tho Hawaiian Islanders aro
now a purt of tho United States by an
nexation, they do not constitute cither
a State or Territory, and consequently
I am of tho opinion that under tho law
ns It now exists a lodgo could not prop
erly bo organized there.
"Doubtless tho matter will bo
brought to the attention of tho next
Grand Lodgo which meets In Atlantic
City on tho 10th July nnd that body
may In Its wisdom see fit to provide oy
law for tho legal establishment 01
lougos In 'our various recently acquired
possessions. Personally I can see no ob
jection to this being done, subject of
course to tho same restrictions that
now govern tho United States."
Herman Kohn, secretary of No. 3,
San Francisco, Is Just ns much In dark
ness though so much nearer. Ho
writes to F. M. Brooks, II. J. Craft and
C. O. Lufkin, committee, quoting an
other letter from tho G. E. It. In tho
same terms, but without evincing any
sense of Its wrongly stated premises.
